Jan 22, 2015

Thursday’s edition of The Angriest Trainer is usually a one-on-one with Vinnie and a guest. Well, fasten your seatbelts...today we have: no music, no lead, no “and now, America's Angriest Trainer”, no horse, no ads and NO GUEST!  Zero. Vinnie is alone in front of the mike. Why? Because we lost a podcast. That’s right. We lost it. So while he was running today,  Vinnie realized “I can do this podcast myself, with no guest."  Let’s see what happens...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

WHAT HAPPENED?

  • Usually with a guest, we use 2 mikes, and amazing Bill Meadows cleans up the audio and combines the two audio files into The Angriest Trainer Podcast
  • When Vinnie still lived in Louisiana, he had a fitness show called “Talking Fitness” on WSNB AM in New Orleans. It was just Vinnie on a mike. Just like today
  • His nephew, Mike Tortorich and his co-host, Joey Tortorich have a podcast, Dudes in a Room, Check out episode 096, "Je Suis Charlie" which is a "one on none" episode
  • Vinnie had been thinking about doing a one-on-none podcast ...just like the good ol’ days

NARCISSISM

  • Ultra sports athletes are the most narcissistic people on the planet. Why? Because to do this sport you have to be selfish with your time
  • After years of competing, athletes start to connect with charities
  • It makes ultra athletes feel better about themselves; their time goes to helping other people
  • Vinnie thinks maybe his podcast helps people with advice, FAQ’s and his free newsletter

PODCAST CALLERS AND QUESTIONS

  • Olivia - Has famous parents, actor Jack Scalia and Miss Universe, Karen Baldwin. She had 3-4 calls with Vinnie to help her with injury...she’s back in shape and on NSNG
  • What should I eat on a daily basis? It’s not about being “carb-a-phobic”, it’s about seeing where grains and sugar sneak into your food so you can avoid glucose spike
  • What should I do about cravings? Yes, in the beginning, before you are fat adapted, there will be cravings. Comedian Bobby Kelly said it was easier getting off drugs than grains and sugar. Once you’re on the other side, it gets easy
  • What exercise should I do? Stick to one program for a period of time so you feel a sense of accomplishment. Use exercise to get in better shape, not for weight loss

BOOK #2

  • Sequel to Fitness Confidential
  • Dean Lorey and Vinnie are working on it together. Todd Farmer is doing research
  • Not so much of a memoir...focused on answering your questions
  • Due out middle of 2015

STARTING NEXT WEEK

  • New podcast on Wednesday with Vinnie and Andy Schreiber sponsored by Pure Vitamin Club
  • 5 minutes answering questions about health and fitness 5 minutes about things (like titanium dioxide) that are in vitamins and shouldn’t be there

Vinnie and Anna discuss a Top 100 Influential People in Fitness List that has come out…and they tear it apart. Vinnie’s contention is that for the most part…it has nothing to do with fitness!!! What is it based on? And after they are done, they...

Vinnie and Anna discuss a Top 100 Influential People in FItness List that has come out...and they tear it apart.  Vinnie’s contention is that for the most part...it has nothing to do with fitness!!!  What is it based on?  And after they are done going through the list, they settle down to talking about injuries.  What injuries are and how to treat them.  Listen and learn...

TOP 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN FITNESS LIST

 

    • VInnie wants to know - what was the criteria?  Who did the “choosing”?
    • #17 is Gwenyth Paltrow....What has she done? and #6 is Tara Stiles...Who?
    • Tony Horton is #29...he should be pissed off
    • And #23 is Bethanny Frankel...she makes diet vodka!

 

SO WHERE’S VINNIE?

 

    • He’s not on the list because he didn’t go after it.
    • Vinnie didn’t pay a publicist to get him on it
    • When Fitness Confidential came out, he hired and fired two publicists
    • It wasn’t worth the money

 

TENDONITIS AND INJURIES

 

    • A tendon connects a muscle to bone.  A ligament is like a small cushion to keep bones from rubbing together
    • When you pull or strain a muscle, just a few fibers in the muscle have broken apart
    • A muscle tear or rip has to be repaired by surgery
    • The only way to treat a pull or strain is ice and rest

 

ICING AND STRETCHING

 

    • Ice at least 3 times a day for at least 20 minutes
    • As cold as possible covering the injured area
    • Don’t use foam roller or tennis ball until pain has subsided
    • Stretching keeps muscles supple...take time and ease into it
