This bonus episode of the Fit Father Project Podcast is a special episode because we’re going to play a recent interview Dr. A did with Dean Pohlman of Man Flow Yoga on the Better Man Podcast.

It’s all about mindset, motivation, discipline, and getting your inner self aligned — mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. 

Whatever journey you’re on — weight loss, muscle building, getting more flexible, etc. — you often know what you need to do. Still, many men struggle with these journeys. Why?

It’s because knowing the right things to do and actually doing them are two entirely different things. And stress, worry, fear, and other emotions make these journeys even harder.

In this episode of the Better Man Podcast, Dr. A and Dean discuss why your emotions are your single biggest obstacle on your weight loss journey — and how you can gain more control over them.

It’s an amazing conversation that goes for nearly 90 minutes, but trust me, it's worth it!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The 3 biggest traps that make losing weight more difficult.
  • Why your stress, fears, and other emotions are actually more to blame for your inability to lose weight than your exercise routine.
  • How to hone your mindset, motivation, and discipline.
  • How regular exercise can rewire your brain and help you stop craving unhealthy, comfort foods.
  • How to make healthier decisions easier and more effective.
  • How to find your deep, visceral “why” for becoming healthier.
  • Everything you need to know about the Man Flow Yoga Strength Foundations Challenge and how to get started. 
  • And so much more!

So, if you want to get the most from your health and fitness efforts, listen to this episode on mindset, motivation, and discipline, take some notes, and check out FF30X!
