 Episode 40: Kym Nonstop on How to Build Your Body at Home | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:16

Kym "Nonstop" Perfetto, star of Bodybuilding.com's new program Home Body, talks about her past in reality TV and her present as a fitness star and bike racer. General silliness, off-color humor, and kale-massage jokes abound. Highlights: - How living a fit, athletic life prepared her for the rigors of The Amazing Race. - The lessons she still carries from her time in Reality TV - How being a (temporary) fitness model compares to bike racing or globe-racing. Spoiler: It's just as hard, but in a different way. - How she takes her training experiences and blends them together to fit her style - On making home-based fitness and working from home function: "It's always about scheduling, and sticking to your schedule, the same way you would when someone else is expecting you. You have to be expecting yourself and show up for yourself." - On the limits of sport-specific training: "When things start to fall apart and you have any kind of back pain or neck pain or shoulder pain or you tear something, that's when you realize you've really been neglecting everything else. Your body will always tell you." - Her experiences with 8-week and 12-week programs, and what made the difference - Her love affair with bands - "I wasn't clean-cut enough for the fitness model side of things, and then I wasn't rough around the edges enough for [bike racers], but I just found my own little niche and I feel like that corner of the fitness world has definitely grown since then."

Highlights: - How he found his place in fitness, and found refuge in the gym - On his first few workouts: "I remember an empowering feeling, a feeling of having control of my own life or an aspect of my life." - "Once you actually get into it and you start, it becomes very clear very quickly that you have control over this thing, and you can become who you want to if you really put the effort in." - On the loneliness of his early days in the gym, and how he found community there - The most popular T-shirt in his clothing line? "Leave me alone." - The struggle and thrill of being an introvert onstage in bodybuilding - "The first time I [set foot on stage, I] definitely blacked out, and then kind of glimpses of it came back to me over time." - On how fitness helped him control his depression and "balance out extremes"--and how he became a little too extreme with his own fitness - What he would tell his teen self now: "That he could enjoy his life a whole lot more." - Why he feels like pre-show water depletion is a ritual that needs to end - On his experience with an early version of the Super League training competition - Post-Super League: "It felt like stepping off a football field, like you just gave something your absolute all, and your brain is gone, your adrenaline is pumping like no other. It was just a different feeling, but it was really cool." Be sure to follow us on social media for daily fitness updates!

 Episode 38: Straight talk on Protein and more with Dr. Jose Antonio | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:51:59

The CEO and co-founder of the International Society of Sports Nutrition stopped by Bodybuilding.com to talk about his research into high-protein diets, and share the current state of the research on protein dosage, creatine, glutamine, and plenty more. Highlights: - The RDA on protein, aka "enough to feed my hamster." - What he views as the real "baseline" for athletes - How he decided to start studying truly high protein intake levels - What they observed in bone health, body composition, and others - "Don’t change your diet. Just throw a whole bunch of protein on top." - About "protein is bad for your kidneys": "It's like saying, 'Hey, I live in south Florida. I sweat all the time. Hey, my sweat glands are working hard. Maybe it's bad for my sweat glands.'" - Why there is such resistance to high-protein diets in popular press - "Protein sensitivity" in aging populations - The Antonio rule: "If it helps or has a neutral effect, just frickin' try it." - His approach to caffeine (he's a highly caffeinated guy) - On clinical doses vs. "dustings" - His retort to the deniers of the so-called anabolic window: "Why not do the shake immediately post-workout? Does not eating ever help you?" - "The right way to look at it is, well, if the anabolic window is that long, take advantage of every frickin' part of the window." - On protein upper limits per meal: "Imagine you've been starving for two days. You finally catch a deer. You want to eat, and your caveman buddy says, 'You know what? 30 grams of protein, that's it. Stop.' And you're hungry. You just want to eat and eat and eat. You want the whole deer leg. It makes sense, from a biological standpoint, that your body can take in and utilize a lot of protein, certainly a lot more than 30 grams." - Why he loves creatine and thinks "it may actually be healthier than taking a vitamin." - Why he's still a believer in glutamine - On branched-chains: Maybe only for "the top one percent" Be sure to follow us on social media for daily fitness updates!

 Episode 35: Taylor Chamberlain - Born into Bodybuilding | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:23:34

Team Bodybuilding.com athlete and IFBB Bikini Pro Taylor Chamberlain shares her fascinating story of finding her way in fitness, watching her parents take the stage when she was a teenager, and figuring out how to thrive with flexible dieting. Highlights: - Her earliest fitness memories in the gym daycare - "I think when I was 13, maybe 12-13 years old, that's when I first remember going in the gym, and my mom and dad kind of showing me the ropes. I just fell in love because I loved the way that I felt afterwards, like my heart rate was up, and the endorphins came, and I felt strong. I kinda just got addicted from there." - On competing: "[My parents] were so enthusiastic… I really thought that was cool to see them go through that physically, but also how they grew so strong mentally, and how they were able to not let it faze our relationship, like our family." - When tragedy struck in the middle of her dad's bodybuilding debut, and how the family rallied together to face it. - Her own dark and "restricted" period of eating: "I only could eat certain foods, because the magazines told me I could. And I had to do cardio twice a day, and it didn't matter what got in my way, I was going to do it, and I was going to eat at noon. Just totally ritualized." - "I feel like that, going through all of that, it's definitely helped me spread the message that I want to today… Fitness and nutrition should enhance your life, rather than make it something miserable that you're going through." - How she found flexible dieting, and why she lives by the numbers - "Nutrient-dense foods do matter. But, you can also still see results while throwing in processed foods!" - Why lifting plus flexible dieting is better than either on their own—and why lifting is "the magic ingredient" - Why she embraced a six-month bulk after going pro, and how she feels now Her decision to not cut down for an important photo shoot—and how liberating it felt - "I also want to show women that you don't have to look a certain way to get to your goals. You don't have to withdraw food, and you don't have to do the crazy amounts of cardio and all that… This is actually really important to me, this shoot, not coming in super shredded."
