Episode 24 of The MoveMind Podcast is all about where you should start with Strength and Conditioning for BJJ.

In this episode, I cover the most important questions to ask first, regarding; the argument for undertaking S&C for grapplers, your training history, your training schedule, equipment access, and more.

How To Conduct An End Of Year Review (#23)

Episode 23 of The MoveMind Podcast is a guide on how to conduct an end of year review, so that you can set goals for your coming year that are realistic, and not just based on arbitrary new year’s resolutions.

I cover how to go through each month of the past year, systematically, to give you a data pool from which you can conduct an 80/20 analysis. And also how to use that data to discover which keystone habits you should be doing regularly, if not daily. I’ve been doing this for over 5 years now and have found it to be immensely useful and interesting, so I wanted to share the process in case you find it to be of use for living a more meaningful life.
