We've seen a number of popular diets come and go in the nutrition industry, but none have quite caused such a fuss like clean eating and flexible dieting. When we quickly compare both these dieting protocols, it's clear they promote two very different eating habits and routines. So which one should you use? What's the pro's and con's to each of them? Anna Marsh and I answer these questions plus much more in this weeks episode. Get your pen and paper ready, and let the rants commence!

Hey guys, welcome to episode 80 of my High Performance Living Podcast.

This time I am joined by Ashley Kalym, who is an expert in calisthenics and bodyweight training.

Calisthenics is becoming increasingly popular, and it's likely you are already doing bits of it, like push-ups or pull-ups. Or maybe, like me, you have ventured to more advanced methods like the human flag. And if you can do the flag, you're AWESOME.

So Ashley is here to break down what is calisthenics, the advantages and disadvantages, where to start, his ideal beginner programme and the quipment you might want to use.

This is a great show - enjoy!
