F2FHQ 101 - The Athletic Fox Rachel Guy

Want to look your best? It is NOT about weight!  Rachel Guy joins us this week to talk about why we can have carbs!  Also, why we need to be lifting, how to get yourself motivated and why we don't need to always kill it in the gym. From Rugby and MMA fighter, to physical therapist and now one of Australia's top female trainers! Listen in for some motivation and some great tips from Rachel. I’m your host, Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network. In this podcast, we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit. We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

Rachel is Head of Strength & Conditioning for the TV show Wimp2Warrior, a six-month training camp to take the average Joe to MMA fighter.

Rachel addresses a question from Angela Neale: What does she recommend to clients when coming back from an injury? How soon should they start training again? Should they do any training while they still have pain? Specifically, I hurt my lower back 3 weeks ago doing deadlifts. Did two other workouts later that week. They were body weight and light kettle bells and both HIIT. Couldn't bend over at all for over a week (or even put socks on or tie my own shoes). Now I'm nervous to lift or even do body weight training. Wondering where to start? The only time I feel any pain now is when I sneeze.
