So Phil Richards was my first real mentor in the industry. I still remember the week long internship I did with him almost 10 years ago on a cold rugby pitch in Wales. He absolutely killed me and in doing so opened up my eyes to what it means to really train.
Having gone from being the U.K's first professional strength coach to working with the very best in professional sports to opening up his own nutritional supplementation company. He's done a lot. So it was an absolute privilege to have Phil on the this episode where we cover all things performance nutrition, Ketogenic diet and his research into Intermittent Fasting. This show was an absolute blast to do as it's never dull when Phil's involved.
I hope you enjoy this episode
