It was a real pleasure to have this a guest on Strength Chat this week. In this episode, I spoke with a PhD in neurology and behaviour, as well as being a multiple masters world champion in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Dr. Mel Davis. After following Mels work and hearing her speak on other podcasts, it was great to have opportunity to speak to her about her area of expertise on all thing’s habits and behaviour change. Creating habits and changing behaviour is something I have found as a coach that some people can really struggle with. Therefore, in this episode, we covered how to create successful habits and positive behaviour change, as well as finding out how to filter out what works best for you.

I was super stoked to finally have this chat with Dr. Mel, as I'm a huge fan of her work and infinitely interested in her field of study: neuroscience and behavior change. Dr. Mel holds a PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior and has 10 years of research experience. She is also currently a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Giva Santana at One Jiu-Jitsu, and is a multiple-time IBJJF Master World Champion. She has even represented the United States in the international Abu Dhabi World Pro Competition on multiple occasions. So, basically, she's an extremely smart badass.

In this episode, we chatted about her move out of the city in California and into the wilderness of Montana, how she got into the fitness industry and her profession of choice with the fitness overlords at Renaissance Periodization, how staying calm and solving problems during jiu-jitsu translates into the real world, exploring the science behind psychedelics and spirituality, the result of people's fitness and health after this quarantine is lifted, and much more!

MHME 006: How To Make Physical Exercise Habits Stick with Dr Mel Davis

Play
Read more

If you’ve ever failed to make a new habit stick, you’re soooo not alone on this one. New Year Habits - Schmabbits, that almost sounds like rabbits and they act like it, right?

Start off bouncing with energy, follow a path, get distracted with other greener, juicer patches, wanders off and all of a sudden it’s breeding new ideas, guilt and all sorts of other charged up ideas about WHY it didn’t work.

Well enough already!

Don’t get me wrong, the new year ( or any other calamitous moment < BIG  Health Event> in life) is the trigger for many people, maybe like you, to focus on what’s important, what you want.  It revs the engine of possibility and hope so….  

you set a plan, you get the gear, get the stuff to make it happen, you prioritise your focus and energy, you start.

But, life gets in the way right? 

Yep, more likely than not, we end up forgetting about it or giving up on it. BUT, why does it work for some and not others. …I’ve often stared at the white wall and grabbed another Tim Tam and thought “Is there something wrong with me?” 

Maybe I’m not dedicated enough, maybe I’m not motivated, maybe I’m not… 

Sure, it takes dedication and commitment to form a new habit. There’s also a lot we can learn from neuroscience on how you can crack the new habit code. 

OK, time to put the Tim Tam down and turn it up because we're joined by Dr Melissa Davis of Renaissance Periodization. Dr Mel is World Champion martial artist, doctor of neuroscience and behaviour change coach. 

Martial Artist Champion + Dr of Neuroscience + Behaviour Change = Knockout Habit Show

  • What exercise does and why it’s an important liffe factor at any age - yes any age!
  • The strategies and methods based in neuroscience you can use to make a physical exercise habit stick. 
  • Dr Mel shines a light on the big blockers to your success and what to do about them. 
  • How to pierce the veil on published information to see if it really does work and is it worth your time, energy and very likely dollars
  • Dr Mel also busts a few nutrition myths along the way

Today’s show will help you kick down the doors, throw old habits on the tatami mat and tighten your hold on what you really want.

Here’s to forming memory health habits that stick!

About Our Guest:

Dr Melissa Davis has ten years of research experience in neurobiology, with her works featured in Scientific American. She is a lifelong Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete and scholar, who has represented the United States in international Abu Dhabi World Pro Competition. She specializes in helping clients utilize tools in losing weight, gaining muscle, and performing. 

Make Your Physical Exercise Habits Stick Understanding the Brain
  • There is a lot of information in classes and in scientific papers that are not accessible to people because they haven't been trained to read papers.
  • Reading a science paper takes training to understand the statistics and jargon.
The Role of Exercise in Longevity
  • With retained muscle mass longer into old age, you get fewer chances of injuries that may lead to death or dependence on others.
  • Through exercise, you get better cognitive function for a longer time.
  • It increases the quality of life.
Why Don't Our Exercise Behaviors Stick?
  • What you want to do differs from what you're used to doing.
  • The new year's resolution effect: People want to make a massive change all at once.
  • The biggest mistake is wanting a fast process and fast results.
Navigating the Space
  • Forming a habit, or breaking away from it takes one step at a time—it takes time, work, and dedicated effort.
  • Reward yourself for even the smallest achievement.
The Guilt Realm
  • Give yourself credit for making little changes. Don't beat yourself up for not being perfect.
  • Taking responsibility for your failures prevents the external locus of control that takes away your capability to make a change.
Engineer Success: 4 Tips To Make Your Habits Stick 
  • Take it in small steps. Start with three or four days a week, and then eventually every other day.
  • Tie the habit with an activity that already exists in your lifestyle and schedule.
  • Track what's gotten in your way this week and strategize how you will solve it for the next week.
  • It's just a matter of finding ways to trick ourselves into doing it, sticking with it, monitoring how often we're doing it, and continuing to improve.
The Importance of Social Support
  • Twofold benefit: It's not only helpful for achieving goals, but it's also helpful for mood and longevity.
Resistance Training and Nutrition
  • Protein supports growth, and it also supports a better quality of life.
  • Exercise, including resistance training, decreases the chances of developing cancer, according to the American Statistical Association.
  • Anything where your muscles are contracting against resistance, is resistance training.
  • Resistance training might be different from person to person depending on how long they've been training and the physical state in which they're starting.
