Being true to yourself with Chaye Hartwell
Chaye is an MX Instructor, Model, Entrepreneur, and Author from Sydney, Australia.  Her new book, 'Chaye Unfolding' is a memoir that details her transition from male to female. In today's Podcast, we have an open and honest chat about this transition. Hopefully, we can all learn lessons from Chaye's story, such as the importance of self-awareness, being true to ourselves and how change is sometimes the necessary pain we must go through if we want a different outcome.Chaye is so much more than her gender and her trans-activation ... in the same that I'm much more than my job title and you are more than the colour of your skin... labels are by their nature reductive.  We talk briefly about the label of being a  trans-woman and how that affects old and new relationships, we also both share words of wisdom from Alan Watts and we talk MX, nutrition, wellness and more. I hope you enjoy it. Chaye's details; Instagram: at @ChayeHatwellModel Website: www.chayehartwell.com Dan Roberts.www.Methodologyx.comwww.DanRobertsGroup.com/MX@teamdanroberts and @methodology_x

Individualism VS Tribalism. Be kind, not "Woke"
So... I think to be happy we need to be free and we need to think clearly! Postmodern tribalism and being too woke can seem kind.. but it's dangerous for society. Here's a short video on the matter.  Basically ...I'm against identity politics. I'm liberal , so hopefully you'll get the nuance.  and yes.. don't worry .. I'll go back to fitness next week!...It's just that I was scrolling through Instagram today... and the lack of clarity from people trying to do the right thing... has inspired me to discuss the world we live in and share my opinions on some very complex issues, including transgender rights, sexuality, religious freedom and more.  I know I'm off-topic for the MX podcast.. so don't listen if it's not for you! and do let me know if anything today resonates. Stay safe!D

The two strength exercises all MX-ers should do!
Todays episode is a bit different as I recorded it as a live YouTube video. Watch it at www.youtube.com/c/danrobertstv - In all the excitement (when I say excitement, I mean my lack of planning and having notes) I forgot to mention a few key things...1) If you are used to lifting then doing 4 sets do 6-12 reps with 90 seconds works great for both exercies.2) There are mulitude of functional benefits to both exercies that make them very useful for athletic living.  For example, the 2nd exercise exposes an improves the Glute medius, which (along with your core) helps to stabilse pelvis and is vital for pre-hab and rehab of runenrs knee and many other lower limb issues.3) Both exercises burn a lot of fat, improve your fundamental raw athletic skill, tone up legs & butt and do it all without bulking up qauads.... this is why they are useful to my clients! - I rarely program is traditional squats as most of my female clients are already quad dominant (due to prevous bad training habits & modern gym culture favouring strong legs and too many HITT or Spin workouts ) and having a lean and fit body vibe is our focus.
