"The Biggest Rooster" series: A Fitness Experiment

rooster radio fitness experiment

At Rooster Radio, we talk a lot about high performance, learning from stories, experiences and theories from the people we interview each week.

But it is all well and good to talk about this stuff. We also want to get really practical about self-improvement and personal development. 

So we're going to launch some experiments, with James and Andrew as the guinea pigs, and we hope our listeners can learn from the failures and some of the wins too.

The first series focuses on health and fitness so we're calling it "The Biggest Rooster" (see what we did there ..).

It doesn't matter what you do, your physical health impacts your performance in ALL areas of your life. And let's be honest, many of us don't look after ourselves as well as we should.

We're not interested in boot camps, getting a Kardashian ass, or building up our biceps for the beach. While we do hope our physical numbers improve over the five weeks or so, our primary goals for this experiment are: 

- Establish healthy habits and routines

- Be consistent (with training and healthy eating, irrespective of work, kids, messy schedules etc.)

Leading personal trainer Jack Errington, Founder of Fit Factory, has put together a five week diet and training program tailored for the Roosters.

After each personal training session with Jack we're going to record an episode updating our progress, and continue to update this blog. No BS - we're going to be real. If we skip sessions, miss meals, drink too many beers etc. we'll be up front and share what we're learning along the way. 

Session 1:

- Testing: Skin folds, beep test, pull ups, bench press.

- Setting up the training program (view).

- Setting up the diet plan. Here's James' personal nutrition and food week scheme, and Andrew's nutrition and scheme.

Thanks to Fit Factory for allowing us to publish their work.
