 Brief summary of show:

 Wayne & Trev reflect on the weight training lifestyle in which they participate in order to keep themselves in shape mentally and physically. Busting some of the myths surrounding bodybuilding and nutrition along the way.

  Ultimately, although it should always be a foregone conclusion regarding keeping fit and healthy, the guys make a strong case for the gym being a cool place to frequent in midlife.

 Bullet points of key topics & time stamps:


●Wayne: 4:00 

My inspiration was that I used to see pictures of schwarzenegger  in the Argos catalogue advertising weider products


●Trev: 8:52 

Yeah, I can pinpoint it to one moment when I was on holiday. I've was in Portugal or somewhere like that. And we are sitting on the beach. And I wasn’t really overweight the last few years. But I got to like, just kind of slightly overweight, coming up to middle aged man. 


●Wayne: 12:59 

Yeah for sure. You can have a little bit of fat as long as your shoulders are bigger than your waist. This works, it works well. And you can do whatever you want within reason
