Specific strength exercises
Basics of form and strength training technique
Progressions and Regressions
Options for if you have equipment, access to a gym or no equipment at all
a downloadable PDF of the workout

I will send you a recording following the workout to cover everything you need to know about the strength training you need!
Essential Exercises Workouts: In these workouts we will go through my book and cover the basics of form and the bare bones exercises you need to be doing in any workout as a musician. These will be based off my book “The Musician’s Essential Exercises” – we will be going through the book, explaining and doing the exercises and also going through and doing the workouts in the back so you can feel competent going forward with any workout you do, knowing what is appropriate for you.

In this episode we will talk about mental fitness, resiliency, positivity, embracing discomfort and more with Dr. Rusty Holmes
Mental fitness, resiliency, positivity, embracing discomfort - all things Dr. Rusty Holmes is more than happy to preach about! From completing his doctorate in a pandemic, playing neighborhood concerts and organizing a 20 stop virtual lecture tour, to taking cold showers and "doing hard stuff" we talk about how growth happens outside our comfort zone and building resiliency and mental fitness both on and off the stage!
This short episode is about how programs and certain pieces of equipment can trick people into buying them (and then buying more stuff when that stuff doesn't work)
In this short episode Jen gets it off her chest about how programs and certain pieces of equipment can trick people into buying them (and then buying more stuff when that stuff doesn't work) instead of helping people meet their goals. Advertising isn't inherently misleading, but we delve into how things have to be difficult to make a change....which will segue perfectly into our next episode with our first guest Rusty Holmes!
This episode is a continuation of the conversation about the science and motivation behind exercise
Healthy Habits Part 3
In continuing our conversation about the science and motivation behind exercise (going off the book "No Sweat" by Michelle Segar) we delve into topics like:
The Wrong Why's - your motivation (or lack) is tied to your meaning
The Cycle of Failure (and how to get out of it)
Making exercise a gift instead of a chore
Autonomy and owning exercise the way that YOU want
Becoming aware of how your body wants to move instead of how you think it "should"
And many other aspects of motivation! There are several aspects of this episode we would really love your input on - drop a message in the comments when you hear them and let us know! We'd love to see a full message board of people sharing similar experiences (you're not alone!)
How do you know if you're working out TOO much or too hard or a combination of those for too long? What about playing? What signs and symptoms should you be aware of to prevent burnout, injury or other underlying health problems you might not know about getting worse?
If "I'm tired"s are becoming a daily norm, more than just not getting enough sleep, there might be other things you should look at.
