Stress Management and Hypertrophy

In this episode, I sat down with my friend and colleague, Tarek Shuhaibar, to discuss the importance of stress management on our overall health, gym performance, and physical appearance.



Stress is a taboo subject, especially amongst men who want to be seen as the alpha.


We had an open and frank discussion about this. Throughout the episode, we break down the negative impacts of this on overall health and why this could be the limiting factor to achieving the results you want.


Tarek has built a career helping busy executives in London create lasting change in both body and mind.


This sustainable route to physique transformation has required him to become highly skilled at coaching clients in the gym whilst also helping them manage the countless stresses and strains their hectic working lives create.



If you feel like you are often overwhelmed or struggling to fit your training and nutrition in around work, family, and social commitments, then this episode is a must-listen.


It’s packed full of useful, actionable strategies you can implement to get the most out of your day.
