Description

Shrugged Collective is a network of fitness, health and performance shows that help people achieve their physical and mental health goals. Usually in the gym, but outside as well.

Episode Date
Logan Gelbrich: Going Right — The Bledsoe Show #130
01:54:09

Logan Gelbrich feels right at home coaching at DEUCE Gym. With a background in collegiate (University of San Diego) and professional (San Diego Padres) baseball, Logan is used to high performance, heavy workloads, and accountability. Luckily, Logan was blessed enough to work with world renowned strength and conditioning coaches, sports psychologists, and nutritionists during his career. It’s during this time that the seeds were sown for the belief system that guides his coaching today. Forever a “student of the game,” Logan is always looking to strengthen and question his understanding of human movement and nutrition.

 

In this episode,  Logan dives into coaching athletes at different stages of development.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18 Logan discusses coaches having a hard time communicating and doing that one thing well.  Going down the rabbit hole of your craft is never going to be the interest of your clients. Understanding what it is to be a teacher.  Why we have the classic case of geniuses that can’t connect to the people.

 

18 –29  Getting different outcomes are about becoming that person. Authentically becoming that person but also becoming that person. Not staying where you are because you think that is where you are most authentic.   Changing beliefs one at a time rather than copying what others are doing.

 

29 - 42  Show people you messed up and what’s behind that. Showing people what they didn’t see before.  Human behavior and why things go poorly for us. What’s at the root cause. Most people go to work doing 2 full time jobs. One job is a full time job and the other job is covering their weaknesses they have.  Keeping from being exposed. How to get over that and lie to ourselves about the weaknesses. Using our weaknesses as a guide to the future better me.

 

42 – 50: Chose to be humble and shine bright lights.  Having a group where everyone is aligned in their desires.  Shifting cultures. Letting guards down, facing fears. Having fun while doing it.  Hedging against having experiences we want.



50 + Setting tones as a coach.  Understanding power and how it works. How to walk into a room and set the tone for a good experience.  You are competing against people who are so willing and brought into processes that you can't change not showing up and giving it your all.

01:18:47

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is a functional medicine physician specializing in Muscle-Centric Medicine, which focuses on skeletal muscle as the key to longevity. She leverages evidence-based medicine with emerging cutting-edge science to restore metabolism, balance hormones, and optimize body composition with the goal of improving health-span.Dr. Lyon’s current patient population includes elite military operators, professional athletes, executives, and anyone looking to level up their body and mind. 

 

Dr. Lyon completed her undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois Champaign - Urbana in Human Nutrition, Vitamin and Mineral Metabolism. She attended the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board-certified in Family Practice. She also completed a research/clinical fellowship in Nutritional Science and Geriatrics at Washington University in St. Louis. Before her foray into medicine, Dr. Lyon was a national semifinalist in Fitness America, a professional fitness model, and nationally ranked figure competitor. She is also a regular speaker on these and other topics for academic and public audiences and is a member of the Eagle Rise Speakers Bureau.  

 

Ashleigh has a fit pregnancy chat with our favorite functional medicine physician, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon. We talk about the exercise and nutrition adjustments that need to be made as you grow a human; the reasons behind some common pregnancy symptoms (food aversions, swollen feet, exhaustion); her thoughts about a birth plan and delivery; resources and tests to take, and things to consider if you’re planning to have a kid for both men and women; and how a Type-A, busy, athletic doctor who treats military operators everyday is learning to connect with her more feminine and maternal side.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 – 9 Catching up with Gabrielle in her second trimester of pregnancy; she talks about the unexpected experience it’s been so far, and the life-changing moment that helped her decide she wanted to have a baby

  

9 – 16 How pregnancy is helping her connect with her feminine and maternal side, and how pregnancy is often an opportunity to practice adaptability – you can’t always control the way your body changes or feels  

16 - 31 How Dr. Lyon’s training and eating has changed (spoiler alert: Significantly!)

 

31 – 38  What’s Dr. Lyon’s birth plan? What are her favorite resources for pregnant women?

 

41 – 53 Some super fun “challenges” she’s facing throughout the pregnancy like bursitis, and how to apply a growth vs fixed mindset to the challenging experiences we all face

 

53 – 58 What tests or prep should couples do when they are thinking about becoming pregnant?

 

58 – 1:01 Back to Dr. Lyon’s regular work: with medical research, how do we know we’re getting unbiased, transparent, and ethical studies and information?

 

1:01 – We talk protein for performance and longevity; when we need more or less protein throughout our lives; and how much generally we need

 

1:07 – What’s Dr. G up to at work these days? We talk about her involvement with Task Force Dagger

Biohacking Your Way To A World Record Bench Press with Emily Hu and Halo Sport CTO Brett Wingeier — Barbell Shrugged #387
01:06:50

Halo Sport is the first-ever brain stimulator used to accelerate movement-based learning. In other words, it speeds up the development of skill, strength, and endurance, depending on the type of training that you pair with it.

 

Halo Sport works by applying non-invasive, mild electrical current to the motor cortex (part of the brain responsible for movement), allowing your brain to build stronger connections and learn movement faster. For example: You can wear Halo Sport for 20 minutes before your training session, which gives you one hour of what neuroscientists call “hyperlearning” or “hyperplasticity”. Training with it accelerates gains across skill, strength, and endurance.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged we talk about the advantages of the Halo Sport 2, the research behind tDCS, the technique of bench pressing, how to fix motor learning problems, how to incorporate Halo Sport during competition, why consistency is the difference maker the difference between Halo Sport 1 and Halo Sport 2,  the Halo Sport app, and much more!

 

Enjoy!

Hard Work Beats Talent: My Story of Couch Surfing to a 7 Figure Business — Real Chalk #71
01:16:08

We all need inspiring stories to keep us motivated and remind us of what is possible. Sometimes we settle with mediocre and forget what our original goals were. We forget what we were put on this earth to do. We get scared. We fail. We make excuses. We put ourselves in a place with limits. But what if... What if our soul has another plan the whole time? What if we don’t know what it is, but it keeps us awake at night? It reminds us that what we are doing is either right or wrong. It consumes our every movement, breathe, thought, and action. It is a gut feeling that never steers you in the wrong direction. It is... Everything you were meant to be and more. You just have to trust it.

 

This is my story. It always gets me emotional, so I’m sorry for the sad parts, but it’s enough to light you up for the week and it’s real shit that we can all accomplish.

 

Enjoy! I love you all.

The Human Garage with Garry Lineham— The Bledsoe Show #129
01:01:52

Garry Lineham (@humangaragela), co-founder of Human Garage, is a lifelong bio-hacker who believes that the human body was designed to heal itself. He started Human Garage as a vehicle to give people the correct input to start that healing. Garry himself lived in chronic pain for over 20 years.

 

During that time, he became increasingly frustrated with the countless treatment modalities that only addressed his symptoms. He realized the root of the problem wasn’t being solved and set out to do just that.

 

Human Garage is based on the principle that optimal health is achieved through complete alignment— restoring the natural functions of the body to enjoy pain-free, full-range of motion. Garry is proud of the fact that medical doctors and therapists from around the world are now coming to Venice, California to learn the Human Garage way of repairing and re-balancing the human body.

 

In this episode, Gary gives why stretching doesn’t work and the issue isn't the issue. How the body is all connected as one. How the Human Garage began and what sets it apart from other places.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18 Muscles have signals. If you don’t get a signal to body part you are working on, then you need to fix that because you are over compensating other areas.  Traditionally people power through aches and pains and don’t resolve it. What does it mean to have your body compensate itself back into alignment?

 

18 –29  There’s one reason why all these injuries happen and it is stress.  People work out to get rid of stress and then end up injured. Fascia is woven everywhere throughout your body. It’s like an intricate network of webbing that connects each part of you to everything else.  How we walk with our hips not our feet. If your systems aren’t working together than it has an effect on performance. You want your muscles to work better, but really you need the whole body to be working together.  

 

29 - 42  How meridian lines show hidden throughout your body,  connections you can’t see and would never consider. They are useful in showing us the connections between muscles, joints, nerves, and organs.   Drilling down to the real issue, lin internal organs, then you heal faster. Food staying in the system too long and doesn’t absorb protein which then turns to cards.  When your body is achy in muscle and joints, it’s because the body can’t recover.

 

42 – 50: Gary changed model so people don’t have to come in as much.   They are now training external preactionars so they can expand the Human Garage.  Human Garage having CBD essential oil steamed shower, hot or cold baths, offering the total conscious spa experience.  What’s organic structured wine? People from all over the world are calling for Human Garbage treatment because of what takes 3 hours to heal, will take minutes at Human Garage because of their techniques.  Postural alignment and client education are two key elements of the Human Garage program.

0 - 18  Intro to Guy’s reason for the personal development over the years.  The psychology behind these fearful stories we tell ourselves and why.  Why gaining awareness was great but how Guy didn’t feel different. Why people compensate in other ways. Guy tapping into the integration of physical, mental and emotional alignment. Discussing the lack of this integration today.

 

18 –29  The different energy systems.  Discussion of Embodiment. Different patterns and subconscious things we do.    Resolving parts of the system that are holding on to different patterns Ex: Built up body gives you confidence but energetically things aren’t changing so you tend to live you in fear still.   Discussions of aggressive, controlling rigid, emerging patterns.

 

29 - 42 Restful connection with yourself so problems aren’t arising.  Getting your body in a peacful connection with yourself. Human body is not built for chronic stress and 70% of Amerca have chronic illness.  4 levels of consciousness. Your body telling you stories with in survival mode. Where your attention goes energy flows.

 

42 - 59  Energy systems taken in from environments, people etc.  and how we push them away because we aren’t in restful state and holding onto energy because we feel we have to be happy. Body has natural intelligence and will move things though.  Letting the body digest the energies you are taking in so they don’t become stuck in the body. Energy and experiences metabolism. The story will disappear and dissipate along with energy.

Know Pain, Know Gain and Why Sore Muscles Are Not The Answer w/ Dr. Andy Galpin — The Bledsoe Show #127
44:26

Dr. Andy Galpin is the Director of Education: Andy is a tenured Professor in the Center for Sport Performance at CSU Fullerton. He was born and raised in beautiful Rochester, WA and is a die-hard Seahawks, Huskies, & Mariner fan. RIP Sonics. As a youth, Andy played every sport at his disposal, excelling at Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Track & Field. While not playing, he worked at grocery stores, gas stations, hay fields, blueberry farms, and in the road construction business. It was during this time he discovered Strength & Conditioning.

Andy took his limited talents to Linfield College to join their Football team and pursue a degree in Exercise Science. While he experienced great success in both (2004 National Championship and 2x Captain and immediate inductee into the "All Ugly" Team), the true reward of this time was the meeting of lifelong friend (Doug Larson). The two fed each other's pursuit of knowledge of human performance and led them to attend the University of Memphis for the Masters degrees in Human Movement Sciences. A bit of luck and excellent faculty mentoring led Doug and Andy to meet Mike Bledsoe and the man formally known as "Barbell Buddha" Chris Moore - all of which later led to the creation of the #1 Health & Fitness Podcast in the world Barbell Shrugged. It also marked the start of Andy's competitive Weightlifting (culminating in his 7th Place finish in the 2007 National Championships), Mixed Martial Arts, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu careers.

Needing to know more about muscle, Andy spent 4 years studying the structure and function of human skeletal muscle at the single cell level, a feat which earned him a PhD in Human Bioenergetics in 2011. This also resulted in the friendship with frequent collaborator Dr. Jimmy Bagley and the ability to open up his own "Biochemistry and Molecular Exercise Physiology Laboratory" at CSU Fullerton.  

He now focuses his attention on teaching classes (Sports Nutrition, Exercise Physiology, Designing Exercise Programs, Applied Strength and Conditioning, Athlete Assessment and Measurement, etc.) and running the BMEP lab (which studies the acute responses and chronic adaptations of human skeletal muscle in response to high force/velocity/power and fatiguing exercise from the whole body, down to the individual muscle fiber and even into the individual DNA. The team does this by taking muscle biopsies from non-athletes and elite athletes from different backgrounds (e.g. normal college student, MMA fighter, Boxer, Weightlifter, etc.) and use highly sophisticated laboratory techniques and equipment to address questions about single fiber "type", size, function, protein quantity, diameter, mitochondria, and myonuclear function.At heart, Andy is simply a story-teller and teacher.

 

Dr. Andy Galpin and Mike Bledsoe discuss the ideas of “Know Pain” and “Know Gain” and does seeking sore muscles hurting your Gainz.  They dive into all the cliches in working out and how using certain can be problematic during workouts.

 

0 - 18 Intro. To Dr. Galpin and the idea of “Know pain” and “Know gain”. Dr. Andy explains how different people can interpret different things in different ways.  They discuss the science behind what’s the goal of lifting and how important the vocabulary we are using during this time can be. Discussing cliche terms and the idea that having a cliche term is problematic because it can be misused and interpreted differently to different people.  Know what pain means to you and your body at that time. Playing the long game versus the short game with workouts.

 

18 –29 Discussing ideas of frequency versus movement quality.  Intensity versus volume and determining which is important and when.  Less time between session versus. Different ways of looking at your goals and attaching them to frequency or intensity tactics.

 

29 - 42 = Importance of movement practice. Techniques while fatiguing.  Getting away with dosing. Level of muscle failure but redefining that. Muscles failing but not out for a month etc.

Build Muscle with Mindfulness: A Masterclass On Understanding Yourself and Your Goals with Ben Pakulski — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #8
01:11:57

Ben Pakulski (@bpakfitness) is an IFBB bodybuilding pro who’s competed in the Arnold Classic and Mr. Olympia, and now runs a successful muscle building program and gym in Tampa Florida called Mi40. He also offers business mentorship coaching, hosts the popular Muscle Intelligence Podcast, and travels the world speaking about the practical, scientific, and mental aspects of living a healthy, happy, and fit life.

 

Ashleigh sits down with IFBB pro bodybuilder, podcast host, and owner of a successful gym and coaching business, the bodybuilding yogi, Ben Pakulski for a deep dive about Ben’s work to change the paradigm of muscle building: to encourage fitness enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds to approach their goals with as much introspection, mindfulness, and strategic thinking as possible. We cover topics like encouraging young people to find their own personalized approach to fitness; practical ways to reverse-engineer your goals in order to establish clear steps to achieve them; how pain and empathy helps you grow (both in the gym and the rest of your life); and some personal stories about how Ben became the muscle expert that he is—starting out as a skinny, vegetarian runner who was told repeatedly he would never find success in bodybuilding.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

5 - 13 Intro to Ben’s background with and passion for bodybuilding, including the fact that he started as a vegetarian runner and gained 70 pounds in a year through food and training when he was 17

 

13 – 25 How Ben is trying to change the paradigm around muscle building through his work, including his plan to create resources for teenagers to learn the tools needed to develop their own personalized muscle building program. We discuss the importance of positive influence and direction for young people, and how he encourages his own kids to be fit and healthy

 

25 - 34  The limitations of our obsession with trying to quantify movements and exercises, and why most people need to focus on mastering the basics before worrying about details

 

34 - 39  The importance of sticking to the goals you set even when your plans change; knowing you can stick to your word is a base from which so much success and growth can happen. How to pinpoint what gives you joy and make time for those things and be intentional about creating joyful moments so you don’t crave quick fixes or seek comfort with distraction.

 

39 - 45 through a very personal story about Ben’s upbringing we discuss the importance of relationships, how to invest in them, how to communicate, and how this can inform your health. How pain can help you grow if you find gratitude in the learning experience and bring empathy and understanding to your interactions

 

45 - 58 – We discuss ways to reverse-engineer our goals by understanding and clarifying what value we bring to the table. A discussion of his work with business mentorship clients

 

58 -: In goal setting and achieving a happy, healthy, fulfilled life, we talk about how to “find your why” and identify not only what your goals are but why those are your goals, so you have a deep level of clarity when challenges arise

A Mathematical Equation For Chasing Your Dreams w/ Logan Gelbrich — Barbell Shrugged #384
02:05:47

Born in Santa Monica, Logan feels right at home coaching at DEUCE Gym. With a background in collegiate (University of San Diego) and professional (San Diego Padres) baseball, Logan is used to high performance, heavy workloads, and accountability. Luckily, Logan was blessed enough to work with world renowned strength and conditioning coaches, sports psychologists, and nutritionists during his career. It’s during this time that the seeds were sown for the belief system that guides his coaching today. Forever a “student of the game,” Logan is always looking to strengthen and question his understanding of human movement and nutrition.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged we talk with Logan about making conscious decisions, the difference between those who are still in the game in their 30’s and those who burn out at 25, the pursuit of truth, why you need to balance out the positive with the negative, a deep dive into depression, building something that will transcend yourself, finding environments that you can commit to a practice of deep work in, Logans upcoming book, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

- Anders and Doug

 

Episode Breakdown

⚡️0-10: Juice boxes for adult, how to develop trust and willingness to create culture, and making conscious decisions

⚡️11-20: Why your choices dictate where you end up, the difference between those who are still in the game in their 30’s and those who burn out at 25, and why you need to build something that is interested in being wrong

⚡️31-40: Present a compelling argument against the thing you’ve created to make sure it’s the best thing out there, personal development, and why there are numerous ways to practice Crossfit

⚡️51-60: Developing deep work, experiencing flow, building transferable skills, and why movement is the best teacher

⚡️61-70: Building momentum, the power of consistency, non-linear learning curves, and a deep dive into depression

⚡️71-80: Watching trainers step out on their own, stepping outside yourself, why the pursuit of the specific leads to the creation of great programs, and realizing that it’s bigger than movement

⚡️81-90: How awareness allows you to see the system, Logans weekend seminar, the importance of hiring a coach, and building something that will transcend yourself

⚡️91-100: Building an organization that will improve through adversity, resilience, and looking at where your gym is fragile

0 - 18 Intro to Alek and how he created his business and developed his clients, while also running a coaching business with his wife. Finding time for romance when you are working with your partner so it’s not all work.  Coaching and the real reason people train versus why they think they train.

 

18 –29  Alek method of training effectively and how to connect everything in your body so you get results.   Tying workouts to what you are working on mentally and emotionally in your life can support your workouts. Our cultural is trained not to talk about our emotions so people use weights to feel free but they still have the problem.  Alek helps you look at what the problem is so once the workout is done you are not still sitting in your emotions and problems.

 

29 - 42  Creating schedules for self-care and make lists of core values you need. Qualifying core values.  What do you need to be happy? If you don't’ find things that make you happy then you will be thinking about that when you are coaching people.   Qualify a want and a need.

 

42 – 50: Looking at your addictions.  People going to their addictions once they feel out of balance.  Replacing addiction with joy. Managing addictions with healthy coping mechanisms.

 

50 Our body will put things aside until it’s ready to let it out. Giving your body a break when needed.  Looking at belief and are the truth. Beliefs you are running on sometimes aren’t even your truth. The more development you do on yourself you will find that in your coaching or business by attracting those people. Getting firm with who you are. Alek working with people on emotionally level too even when people think it’s the exercise that they needed. Getting down to emotional stress. Listening to your body and letting emotions tress leave.

Tips from Celebrity Chef David Fultz — Real Chalk #67

Mr. Flutters (@flutters77) is the official chef for more famous people then he can even remember. From big time hip hop super stars, the top names in CrissFit, professional athletes, to his current country singing super stars — (he’s not allowed disclose names) you can rest assure that he has experience making some top quality food. Not only that but he personally visits each farm that he buys products from and he drops the names of the best quality places all over this episode.

 

I ask a few questions about quality of products that you’re getting at restaurants, what to look for and ask for, we talk a little bit about his struggles, and we just have a fun flowing entertaining conversation that keeps your attention the whole time. It’s a little longer than usual, but the time will fly by. Enjoy!

Rob Wilson (@preparetoperform) is a coach with Power Speed Endurance which is a programming, coaching and educational platform for developing sports performance, fitness and health—and it’s not only for high level endurance athletes but anyone looking to improve their health and fitness through increased movement efficiency and better mechanics. Rob travels the country teaching the Art of Breath clinic, covering the theory and practical applications of oxygen and c02 efficiency, proper body and breathing mechanics for increased movement efficiency, and much more.  Rob has 15 years of experience in manual therapy, he co-owns CrossFit Virginia Beach with his wife, and he's worked with Kelly Starrett on the Mobility WOD staff before he helped develop the Art of Breath seminar for Power Speed Endurance.

 

In this episode Ashleigh talks with Rob Wilson, a CrossFit gym owner and movement and breath specialist about the course he developed with Brian Mackenzie for Power Speed Endurance called The Art of Breath – it’s a masterclass clinic on breath work, including how mindful practice and control of your breath can have positive effects on health, fitness performance, and mental health and cognition. We talk about why you should breath through your nose almost all the time, especially when you’re training; what the diaphragm is and why it’s so important; how to increase carbon dioxide tolerance; mobilizing your body effectively to use your lungs to the fullest; and actual breath work techniques that enhance your physical performance and manage stress.  Can you guess the world record for the longest static breath hold? You’ll find out in this episode!

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18 Intro to Rob and what the Art of Breath seminar is all about: creating a universal language around breath work and a pragmatic, physiology-first approach

 

18 –29 How breathing can affect mindset, and how to use breath work as an anchor and a way to achieve control over your physiology when you can’t control your environment. We discuss the connection between his work and yoga, Wim Hof-style breathing, and mindfulness practices.

 

29 - 42 = The evolution of the Art of Breath course and Rob’s journey to becoming a better teacher and instructor, including stepping out of his comfort zone and taking a storytelling class and studying stand up comedy in order to connect and tell better stories

 

42 – 50: Who can benefit from the breath work course and techniques and how they can apply it specifically do their work and goals, including coaches, athletes, individuals adding it as a tool for therapy.

 

50 – What to do with your knowledge once you’ve learned and studied your breath and have a breathing practice: how and why your breathe practice should change your behaviors

Authenticity, marketing, influencer marketing, Facebook ads, and how to create success from nothing using an I-phone is all covered as we go through the BS of the social media world and tell you how it really is.

 

Transparency on social media makes the biggest difference in growing a loyal following, before marketing to the masses and growing a business.

Mike Bledsoe: The Hardest Thing I Ever Had To Do In Business — The Strong Coach #19
01:24:12

Empowering the body-mind connection is an absolute must in Mike’s (@mike_bledsoe) world. A lifetime of athletics and training, along with being a coach and entrepreneur for the last decade, he has tapped into parts of himself that were once unknown.
Simultaneously competing in the sport of weightlifting, coaching national caliber athletes, running a 7 figure business with 20+ employees, and hosting the #1 rated Fitness & Nutrition podcast on iTunes (Barbell Shrugged) took a lot personal growth just to keep up.

After hitting the ceiling of capacity many times over he discovered and distilled the processes that create the greatest expansion for capacity and growth.

In the last year Mike launched The Strong Coach, a program for personal professional development for coaches, which has already begun transforming the way coaches interact with their clients and build their businesses. He is also in the process of building a new brand called Enlifted. It is a mindset program for athletes and coaches.
Mike is a US Navy veteran, holds a degree in Health & Human Performance, and has accumulated numerous health & fitness certifications. He spent the last 7 years traveling the world interviewing the top athletes, coaches, scientists, and researchers to find what creates a successful athlete and entrepreneur. Through the journey of studying what they do, to the underlying principles their actions are based upon, to digging deeper to find what is actually creating success, he has found clear distinctions and practices that separate those who live an optimized lifestyle from the rest of the crowd.

 

In this episode Danny interviews Mike about the hardest thing Mike’s ever had to do in business, what happens when you create from inspiration, Mike’s current projects and why they are all successful, the power of asking for help, why you need to be paying your coach more than what you charge your clients, why focusing on where you’re going, not how you’re going to get there, will lead you to where you’re supposed to be, and much more.

Will Lanier (@truebluewill) has worked for the past decade as a CrossFit Coach and general manager for Brick New York, and has spent time working for other fitness organizations like Barry’s Bootcamp and 24 Hour Fitness. He’s now the founder of The Out Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to remove the barriers that block LGBTQ+ individuals access and participation in health, wellness and fitness to ensure their success through fun, inclusive fundraising events like OUTWOD and by providing health and fitness-related scholarships to LGBTQ youth.

 

Today is a fun walk down CrossFit memory lane, as well as peering into the future of the sport: Ashleigh chats with fellow CrossFit NYC OG Will Lanier about the early days of CrossFit in New York City, his work as a trainer who helped bring the Brick fitness franchise to the city, his experience as a gay man in CrossFit, and his current work as founder of The Out Foundation/ OUTWOD fundraising events, with a goal to increase inclusiveness and access to CrossFit for everyone including those in the LGBTQ community. We talk about transgender competitors in CrossFit and other sports, and why CrossFit is so unique in its ability to bring people together.

 

Enjoy!

0 - 26 Intro to Will’s background at CrossFit NYC, becoming a trainer, the growth of CrossFit in New York and worldwide

 

26 - 44 How he came to start his foundation and what it’s about, what OUTWOD is, about the fun and learning that comes with creating your own community; why inclusiveness is important for everyone and why it doesn’t have to be political; what he learned working all the different types of fitness organizations from CrossFit to a more globo-gym environment

 

44 – A discussion on trans athletes competing in different sports from CrossFit to MMA, the complexity of the regulations, and why testosterone levels shouldn’t be the main determinant for who can compete in women’s categories

How to Create the Perfect Program w/ Ryan Fischer— Real Chalk #65
01:33:31

This week's episode is all about programming.

 

Picking the right goal, manipulating frequency, volume, intensity, planning for adaptation, choosing mass or strength, making your exercises match your goals, how many days per week, sets and reps, tempo movements, rest breaks, gym programming, and much more...

 

This is probably one of my most passionate subjects and it’s what I’m known for around the world as an individual and a gym owner. It’s a lot of info to cram into 1 podcast, but I cover each point just enough to make you dangerous and understand what’s most important. No fluff, just the meat and potatoes. I hope you love it.

 

Enjoy!

AJ Roberts: The New Wave of Intelligence and Why Meditation without Action is Limiting Your Capacity — The Bledsoe Show #123
01:46:35

This week on The Bledsoe Show Mike talks with old-school Barbell Business podcast host and two-time world-record-setting powerlifter AJ Roberts. He’s one of the few people in the industry with a very solid perspective on both business and training, and he’s one of our favorite speakers of all time. He gets it, and he’s great at helping other people get it, too.

 

In this episode we talk about the practice of making things unimportant, how cognitive dissonance is hijacking your life, why mediation without action is limiting your capacity, the new wave of intelligence, why people fill their spaces with stuff, how globalization is waking people up, how you can experience the greatest joy and sadness all at once, and much more.

⚡️21-30: Why meditation without action is limiting your capacity, the new wave of intelligence, the false reality of what’s important, and why does the richest person in the world start to give their money away?

⚡️31-40: Why people fill their spaces with stuff, learning your thought process and how you’ve been conditioned by your past, and how you can tap into your intuition

⚡️ 41-50: The amount of ways to communicate with others, the pressure to respond, ask yourself not what’s possible, but what’s sustainable, and what we’ve identified as the best path possible

⚡️51-60: What you want is there you just have to pay attention to it, why you should observe your own behavior, and the subscription society

⚡️61-70: Operating from the mindset of scarcity vs. abundance, the creation of new problems, and how the narrative changes but human behavior doesn’t

⚡️81-90: The only real pain and suffering in the world, how you can experience the greatest joy and sadness all at once, the creation that results from the peaks and valleys of life, and why the roller coaster is what makes life worth living

All About Women’s Bodybuilding, and What Happens When Your Picture Goes Viral on Social Media with Koko King — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #4
01:14:34

Koreena King (aka Koko) has been in the bodybuilding world for less than a decade, but has made a name for herself in her native Ontario with her in-depth knowledge of the bodybuilding world, as well as her posing coaching and competition makeup skills. She’s worked as a posing coach and makeup artist in the industry for years.  

 

We’re all a part of the social media community, consuming and observing trends, online behavior, and interaction. The fitness community online can be especially harsh, with plenty of judgement to go around (from your form, to the way you look, to the validity of your accomplishments, and more). But have you ever stopped to think about how you would feel if a picture of you went viral, shared on dozens of accounts with tens of thousands of people commenting on your appearance? My guest today, Koreena King, is a bodybuilder who dealt with this very thing. We discuss what it’s like to get hundreds of comments and messages a day (many of them kind, but many of them extremely abusive), what it’s like to look different from the “typical norm” even within the bodybuilding community and how to maintain a strong sense of self in an increasingly superficial online world, and we deep dive into women’s bodybuilding in general: the different categories, what it’s like to train and compete, drug use, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

-Ashleigh

 

Minute Breakdown:

Persistence of a Fanboy w/ Herky Garcia — Real Chalk #66
01:26:05

In this week's episode I sit down with a fan boy named Herky Garcia (@herkygarcia). Herky emailed me back in 2015 to work and train at my gym. I said no. He continued to stay persistent and even came down for a visit one weekend and asked me again in person. I said no again. Eventually he decided to just move to Orange County and gamble on this dream of working out at CHALK and hanging out with one of his idols (me).

Fast forward to today and he not only has a job here, but we consistently have sit downs where I give him motivating talks and try to teach him as much as I can. The reason I think this show is so great is because like Herky, there’s a ton of people out there reaching out to their idols and trying to make a move like this. In this episode Herky tells me how he had several living situation mishaps while being here including a few weeks where he slept in his car and even the gym. He asks me questions that he’s always wanted to know and I also answer a few questions off of social media. If you’ve ever been a fan of me or anyone else in this space and wondered what it would be like to drop everything and move, then this is the show for you.

 

Enjoy!

-Ryan

Learning To Learn, Discipline, And The 3 Step Process To Self Awareness With Thane Marcus — The Strong Coach #17
01:14:40

Thane Marcus has spent the past four years deep diving into personal development. Although the object of that development was the arena of professional golf, the subject of that development was himself. During Thane’s golf career, he left no stone unturned in regards to maximizing his human potential. This ceaseless striving has given him a strong grasp of the process involved in producing his best work, whether that be within an office, sweating in the gym, or for the business he’s creating.

 

The main service that Thane is providing is what he calls Collaboration — Development and Performance Coaching (a combination of Coaching, Consulting, and Creating).

 

Along with these services, Thane is committed to providing consistent and thought-provoking content through written blog-posts each month, and through the content he produces on The Up & Comers Show. He says that this is as much selfish as it is selfless - since writing is an exercise which gives him more life than he can share with others in return. From the podcast he co-hosts, to the events he speaks at, to the blogs he writes, and the books he authors, Thane is blessed to be able to learn through many different forms of communication that each facilitate different neurological connections. His goal is for this content to stimulate greater thought, contemplation, and growth in the lives of all who read or listen.

 

In this episode we talk about Thane’s background, how we can learn how to learn, why we settle and how to prevent it, the lack of discipline in modern society, the 3 step process to self awareness, picking a path and sticking to it, the virus called complaining, the 7-10 years it takes to get to mastery, and much more!

 

Come join us at www.thestrongcoach.com

 

-Mike

 

Episode Breakdown:

⚡️0-10: Thane’s Background, the human tendency to fantasizing about the good while forgetting the bad, and how we can learn how to learn (hint: failure is a large part of it)

⚡️11-20: Why we settle and how to prevent it, the power of intention, and modern societies lack of discipline

⚡️21-30: Building your environment to support the lifestyle you want to live, the cycle of expending and accumulating energy, and if you can't self observe than you can’t self correct

⚡️31-40: Simple does not mean easy, #adulting, the 3 step process to self awareness, and priming vs. planning

⚡️ 41-50: Creating alignment in your life, reality is always different than your expectations, and how daily resets can put your ego in check  

⚡️51-60: The need for society to refocus on raising kids, there is no limit for better, pick a path and commit to it, and the virus called complaining

⚡️61-75: Everything in the world is related, it takes 7-10 years of work to get to mastery, burn the boat, and how more information is creating more fear

"I Sent It My Whole Life": How To Be The Best at Fitness And Business With Lauren Tickner— Real Chalk #63
57:06

We're flipping the script this week: I've just met Lauren (@laurentickner), and she's going to interview me on my own podcast. It gets deep, it gets weird, it gets a little spiritual—this chick is not afraid of asking probing questions. We dive into how I found my passion, what makes me relentless, and the things that scare me (spoiler alert: one of them is Everest). Lauren shares what being a mentor of influencers looks like, and we both take a look back on the ways our brands have evolved.

 

We've got lots of great advice on how to be successful at just about anything, but the one thing you won't find here is a shortcut to achieving your goals. If you want to see your dreams become reality, you've got to put in the work, and it won't always be pretty. But someone less qualified than you is already out there killing it—so what are you waiting for?!

 

Go start failing!

-Ryan

 

1:15 No pain no gain: Ryan as a child

5:30 The comp FOMO, how life changes

8:00 Where the drive comes from: sometimes you just know

14:15 The butterfly effect and where the best rushes come from

18:00 What's scaring Ryan Fischer? Everest.

22:45 How the brand happened, and why it's essential to be the absolute best

33:00 The evolution of programming—your workouts should be exciting

41:00 Why regular gyms are the worst, and taking drugs won't change your life

44:00 The correlation between success in fitness and business

46:00 Failure will happen. So go get started.

48:00 What mentoring influencers looks like

49:15 You don't have to be the best—just 2% better than someone to coach them

51:00 You heard it, now go live it.

52:30 Where to find Lauren

The Bledsoe Show: The Brand X Method: Fitness For Future Generations And Coaching Kids with Jeff and Mikki Martin - #121
01:02:54

In 2004, Jeff and Mikki Martin (@thebrandxmethod) imagined a better future for youth and began working toward that future by developing the original strength-and-conditioning program specifically designed for kids. Almost 15 years later, they continue to do what’s best for kids on a daily basis with The Brand X Method™, the world leader in youth fitness.

 

The Martins teach and speak all over the world; sit on the boards of fitness industry-leading organizations such as StandUp Kids and TeenLIFT; and are partnering with OPEX Fitness, the International Functional Fitness Federation, and Kerri Walsh’s p1440. They recently launched the first seminar in their new The Art of Growing Up Strong ™ live seminar series. The Brand X Method is currently represented worldwide by dozens of official Training Centers.

 

With decades of collective coaching experience between them in fitness and self-defense, the Martins have developed a method for optimal youth athletic development that combines state-of-the-art movement skill training with classic principles of strength training, physical literacy, and play. To deliver this program effectively to the most kids, the Martins created the cutting-edge Brand X Professional Youth Coach Certification designed to provide coaches with the knowledge, tools, and passion to build formidable humans.

 

In this episode we talk about what the lack of play is doing to physical literacy, the spectrum of kids fitness, the Brand X ethos, why you can’t express what you don’t possess, how to get into coaching kids, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

⚡️0-10: The misconception around what parents will pay for a good fitness program and what the lack of play is doing to the landscape of physical literacy

⚡️11-20: The spectrum of kids fitness experience and the Brand X ethos

⚡️21-30: You can’t express what you don’t possess and how lack of understanding this is hurting kids

Risking it All for a Simpler, Happier Life: Valentine Thomas on Why She Quit Her Job as a Lawyer to Become a Professional Free Diver, Spearfisher and Conservationist — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #2
01:16:43

Canadian-born Valentine Thomas (@valentinethomas) is a trained lawyer who worked in finance in London for six years before leaving it all to travel the world and spread the word about eating and fishing responsibly. She’s a Freediving Instructor with PADI, professional traveller, accomplished chef, TEDx speaker, entrepreneur and soon-to-be cookbook author.

 

Learn why a trained lawyer left her cushy job and life in London to live in her car before becoming a freediver, spearfisher, chef, and sustainable fishing and eating advocate. We discuss the risks and joys of working in the ocean; the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated profession; how she got over a near-drowning and subsequent fear of the water by becoming a freediving instructor; tips on how to hunt, shop, and eat sustainably and ethically; and why it’s important to spend your time doing what you love (even if it’s risky).

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

4-16 Why Valentine quit her lucrative career to become a spearfisher and free diver, and what it takes to learn these challenging and dangerous skills

17–25: Why hunting is a primal, and deeply respectful, part of human nature, and how to get people to care more about ethical eating– whether you’re vegan, carnivore, or anywhere in between

25-36: We talk about the realities and challenges of her life (despite the glamorous Instagram account), including sleeping in her car, having a voice in a male-dominated world, and maintaining relationships when you’re never in one place

36–54: All about risks: how Valentine overcame near -drowning and a deathly fear of the water (including severe anxiety and agoraphobia) to enjoy a life spent almost entirely in the water; a discussion on the inherent risks and rewards of stepping outside the box of what’s expected of you and doing what truly makes you happy

54: Helpful tips on the best and worst fish to eat as well as how we can all make the best food choices for ourselves and the planet

Some Crossfit O.G. Talk W/ Blair Morrison and Ben Alderman — Real Chalk #62
01:39:40

I'm teaming up with two CrossFit OGs for this episode, comin' atcha from Wodapalooza weekend! As veterans of Regionals, the Games, podcasting in the fitness community, gym-owning, and everything in between, Blair (@morrison_blair) and Ben (@ironmile_ben) need no introduction—which is why they don't get one. We get right down to airing our unfiltered opinions on Sectionals, Ben Smith's post about event programming, Rich Froning's shoes, Jen Widerstrom, and why the CrossFit community brings together the most awesome people. 🤗

We go way back to the beginning of literally everything: our early gym days, competing, what our moms thought good nutrition looked like, training for the Olympics, starting podcasts, starting families, and what we used to dream about when we were kids. Flash forward to today: we're setting new goals, climbing new mountains, and living far, far away from Jersey. 🏔

Don't worry, it's not just the best shit-shooting session you've ever gotten to listen in to. It's also packed with useful tips for business-building, training safely, achieving epic things, and staying relevant even after you're not actively competing anymore. Plus, if you've ever wondered whether other CrossFitters are unimpressed with HQ's sweethearts, now is your chance to find out. 😉

 

Enjoy!

Jesse Elder: Curiosity, Intelligence, And The Difference Between Effort And Struggle — The Bledsoe Show #120
01:55:41

Jesse Elder’s (@jesseelderlive) own journey to self-mastery unfolded as he grew up in a family of 7. Being homeschooled, Jesse was given the gift by his parents of being largely self-directed in his education and spent hours exploring ideas that interested him. At the age of 9 Jesse was introduced to martial arts. Hitting the mats every week became a passion that would play a powerful role throughout Jesse’s life.

 

Coming out of his teenage years, Jesse learned that some things in life are too important to ignore and even though it might be uncomfortable, you must do what you think is right. This lesson helped give Jesse the courage to open his own school, which eventually transformed into him realizing that big ideas aren’t just for one person, but for anyone who desires more out of their life. The result of this realization is his website, jesseelder.com, which is a “vault” of mind videos at anyone's disposal.

 

In this episode we talk with Jesse about unconditional acceptance of self, developing a mindset of curiosity, the difference between effort and struggle, obeying the laws of nature, and, the all important question, last month, how many things did you do for the first time? You’ll find lots of truth in this episode from a man who manages to live life faster than me.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

⚡️0-10: Jesse has tried a lot, here is what he’s not going to recommend to you (hint: he won’t allow you to live through him)

⚡️11-20: Why you need unconditional acceptance of yourself before you can serve others

⚡️21-30: Developing a mindset of curiosity leads to an expanded sense of intelligence and the difference between effort and struggle

⚡️31-40: Thought, feeling, action, repeat: The power of obeying the laws of nature

⚡️ 41-50: Memories and how we create the past every time we visit it

⚡️51-60: Blurring the lines of past, present, and future and the power of presence

⚡️61-70: Time is a narrative constructed by language, the importance of context, and the moment between the parentheses

⚡️71-80: The power of practicing courage and creating alignment in your life

⚡️81-90: Choosing to release resistance in your life

⚡️91-100: Why Jesse shaved his beard off

⚡️10-112: Last month, how many things did you do for the first time?

Devon Larratt: Why Pain Is Information And A Deep Dive Into A Sport You Know Nothing About — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #1
01:57:38

Devon Larratt (@devlarratt) is a world champion arm wrestler (in both arms) and received mainstream fame with his YouTube video defeating The Mountain Thor Bjornsson in an armwrestling match. He’s also a twenty-year veteran of the Canadian military, with time spent in an elite special forces unit, and one of the most dedicated athletes on the planet–with a healthy dose of humor, stoicism, and just plain genetic freakiness.

 

In this deep-dive interview with Devon, we talk about how he found the sport of armwrestling, how he came to dominate the sport–including his training, diet, mindset, and even psychological warfare tactics against his opponents. We also talk about his military service and how he is able to transfer the intensity and stress of that job to help him excel in his chosen sport, and in life in general. We also go on tangents including drugs and drug testing in armwrestling, how women are navigating the traditionally male-dominated sport, and pain and injury management— and how many arms Devon’s broken during his career.

 

Episode Highlights:

8 - 20 Intro to the sport of armwrestling

20 - 32 Devon talks about the physicality of the sport and gnarly injuries (both to himself and others)

32 - 54 Deep dive into training

54 – 1:06 Drug testing in armwrestling, and sports in general

1:06 – 1:10  Women in armwrestling

1:10 - 1:22  Devon's diet,  including a rabbit hole about some very weird experimental diets and a buffet-related eating injury

1:22 -1:34  Discussion of the mental game, and how to supremely mess with your opponents while still being respectful

1:34 -1:47 Devon discusses his military background and mindset, tells some actual war stories, and how his military career informs his approach to life and his career as a professional athlete

The Military Mindset: Balancing Work And Fitness W/ Chandler Smith — Real Chalk #61
01:04:14

Chandler Smith (@blacksmifff) is making a name for himself in the fitness world while holding it down in the Army—except for one time he got his finger chopped off. (You bet that story is included in this episode!) But he's fine, and crushing it on the Misfit team at Wodapalooza.

 

What does it take to be an athlete with a brand? We talk about the way the game has changed, being competitive while working a day job, and how sometimes you just need to fail until something works. Chandler gives us a glimpse into the influence Army training has had on his fitness career, and tells us what's next for him.

 

It may not always love us back (injuries, bad judges, the new Games qualification format) but we've got a lot of appreciation for this sport and all the crazy people we get to do it with. Whether you're a failed athlete in another sport, or you peaked and needed a new outlet, or you're just a savage addicted to the pain cave, there's room for you.

 

Now get out there and kill it!

-Ryan

 

1:00 How the game has changed since Fisch's day (failed athletes and real jobs)

5:15 Chandler's training/school balance, transitioning from wrestling to CrossFit

8:00 Adapting to limitations (Tarzan and Jane)

9:30 Fisch's military aspirations and some backstory

14:30 How military training influences CrossFit, but also the toll on your body

20:00 Injury repair and maintenance

27:00 If you can't win the Games, build a brand

36:00 You may not be able to imagine your life trajectory yet, so just go do stuff

37:00 The things Ryan does to get a workout in

40:30 Chandler chopped his finger off, but it just stoked the fire

45:30 What's next? Don't hold your breath for a Army x CrossFit collaboration

47:00 We're all weirdos here. Some of us are born with it, some of us have worked really hard.

54:30 Where to find Chandler

01:41:23

Conner Moore (@connerwanders) has spent years working with individuals and groups. The experience of reaching so many people led Conner to notice that everyone has an undeniable urge to connect to others with purpose and confidence in their contribution.

He became obsessed with removing what was limiting us from tapping into the most full and expressive versions of ourselves.

 

Conner’s obsession started a journey that led to the creation of The Realness and The Lifestyle Design Coaching programs. Sharing these experiences is Conner’s passion and he is incredibly grateful to work with others to take genuine ownership of their lives. Conner also created The Realness Podcast and Realness Retreat Costa Rica to further his ability to create connection and understanding for others.

The New Sportscenter of Crossfit w/ Armen Hammer — Real Chalk #60
01:29:27

Armen Hammer and I go way back to the early days of throwing barbells around. We've both been through some major transitions and seen a ton of changes happen in the CrossFit space. It's been a couple years, so we had a lot of catching up to do when we met up in Florida during Wodapalooza weekend.

 

After leaving the Wodcast Podcast, Armen worked for FloElite until they downsized. He saw an opportunity and set out to become the SportsCenter of CrossFit. You need the new format explained in layman's terms? Armen's your guy (there's another Waterworld reference here, so it's obviously important and if you haven't watched it by now, stop what you're doing and MAKE IT HAPPEN). And because he's not affiliated with CrossFit, he can curate his content however he likes, with complete unfiltered creative freedom. There's at least one perk of landing yourself on HQ's bad side.

 

We talk about social media, what the different platforms are ideal for, how Twitter should just die already, and what my MySpace looked like back in the day. Armen gives an update on what his fellow former Wodcast hosts are up to these days, and we take a trip down memory lane to the good old days with Ronnie Teasdale (he's selling sex cult memberships now). It gets a little weird from there, but what did you expect? This is a Real CHALK episode. 😜

 

-Ryan



0:00 🌴 Miami Beach is a real-life LMFAO music video, and the Ubers are garbage

3:45 🌴 Armen's Wodcast Podcast origins, how originality doesn't always translate into staying power

8:00 🌴 FloElite went sour, and now he does his own thing: YouTube, podcasts

9:00 🌴 Let's break it down: good content helps, but what drives traffic is tags (but you better already have an audience)

11:00 🌴 Armen is the middleman: he knows what's up with CrossFit and how to explain it to the layperson

21:00 🌴 The shelf life of great content: Instagram isn't google-able, YouTube is an index, and you should invest in a high-quality potato

30:00 🌴 How many subscribers is a lot?

33:00 🌴 The ad-pocalypse: you can see exactly how much money videos make you, and the big names have production teams

41:00 🌴 The early days of CrossFit (Ronnie Teasdale is selling sex cult memberships now, and Fisch doesn't hand out death threats so readily)

49:30 🌴 Don't call Fisch the CrossFit guy: how not to get pigeonholed

53:00 🌴 This is Armen's thing: YouTube lets you get paid to do ANYTHING

54:45 🌴 Weirdest thing you've ever searched on a porn site? And no, aliens didn't actually land in Ryan's childhood bedroom

1:01:30 🌴 What's Armen doing at Wodapalooza anyway, and how do you figure out who's up and coming these days?

1:06:30 🌴 What's up with the Wodcast guys? Scott hosts the Sisu Way, and Eddie's doing comedy and recording out of a bus

1:14:00 🌴 Let's talk about the reformatting: what's the "right" direction? Sports built from the ground up can't be controlled by a single entity—one-facet coverage is propaganda

1:18:30 🌴 Armen got kicked out of the Games—why keep being in a space where people don't like you?

1:21:00 🌴 It's just @ArmenHammerTV everywhere, but not really Twitter even though Donald Trump revived it. And armenhammer.tv on the internets.

Theresa founded Movement Rx with her husband in 2013 in order to break free from the limitations that traditional physical therapy puts on practitioners and patients. The result was a company where skilled practitioners can authentically treat patients with the time, care, and movement education they deserve.

 

Dr. Larson is determined to deliver movement & mindset health to as many people as possible with her team, including adaptive athletes as she is an adaptive athlete herself. She is a motivational speaker for companies, helping individuals and teams understand that change is possible and leadership starts within. She also presents on movement and mobility internationally and is the co-creator and lead instructor of the popular Functional Training for Adaptive Athletes program. She recently authored a memoir (WARRIOR) that was published through Harper One, an imprint of Harper Collins, and is a co-founder of Your Movement Prescription, the cutting edge virtual rehabilitation and wellness company whose programs include The Low Back Fix, The Knee Fix, and The Shoulder Fix.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged we talk with Dr. Larson about how to embark on the journey to find your calling, the power of finding your tribe, the difference between adaptive and disabled, and why health starts with leadership.

 

Enjoy!

It’s all in your head: How to build a business, reset your mentality, and crush your limitations w/ Mike Bledsoe — Real Chalk #59
02:04:55

Are you ready for this?! It’s a crossover episode—with Mike Bledsoe, the OG host of Barbell Shrugged and the creator of Strong Coach. He's got a lot to say about, well, just about everything—from entrepreneurship strategies to open relationships and what the future of information looks like (spoiler alert: it features brain implants and the ability to communicate feelings). 🧠

 

Throughout the years Mike’s gained some crazy-valuable insight into the athlete mindset and how to successfully tackle obstacles by identifying what's holding you back from your goals. He explains what drives him (it's definitely not money) and talks about the process of developing Training Camp for the Soul and his newest endeavor, a mindset course for athletes that will be launching soon, so keep an eye out! 💪🏼

 

Mike has been into podcasts since way before they were cool, so he knows who's got it and who doesn't and what makes content worth producing. He also knows who the Hugh Hefner of podcasting is (did you know there was one? Surprise!) and that you probably shouldn't start your own. But don't turn off this episode yet—Mike still believes the best way to have a positive impact is through business, and there are still plenty of ways to do that. Plus, you wouldn't want to miss the stories we've got about insane DMs, the things gay guys are willing to do to me, and how we're all going to be robots in a few years. 🤖

 

It's Real CHALK on steroids—without, you know, any actual steroids. There aren't any shortcuts to the turtle shell, sorry fellas! 🐢

 

-Ryan



1:00 💥 The Barbell Shrugged story

8:30 💥 Don’t start a podcast. Make a YouTube channel.

16:30 💥 The entrepreneurship mentality: your 9-to-5 is a half day

22:00 💥 You lack discipline, and that's why you aren’t gonna look like Ryan Fischer even if you take steroids

24:00 💥 Dating apps. And the most ridiculous DM.

32:00 💥 Short-term and long-term goals for your business, and why collaboration is probably a good idea

42:00 💥 What’s your limit? Where are you setting the ceiling for yourself? How many more people could you be impacting?

44:00 💥 Legacy, self-sabotage, and how to reinvent yourself

50:30 💥 A day in the life of Ryan Fischer

58:45 💥 Two different ways to create change: do to become, or become to do. How do you be the person who does the thing?

1:09:00 💥 Finding a better way forward

1:14:00 💥 A success story, and the difference between information and coaching

1:21:00 💥 New big things! Mindset course for athletes

1:25:00 💥 Where Training Camp came from

1:32:00 💥 From disposable cameras to implantable neuronets (Elon Musk knows some shit), and an uncomfortable question: Are you producing value, or mindlessly consuming?

1:39:45 💥 Levels of labor: physical, technical, creative, interpersonal

1:43:00 💥 How is communication going to change, if we can actually understand someone else’s experience?

1:47:00 💥 Ryan Fischer is not actually a monster

1:53:00 💥 Oh yeah btw listen to Strong Coach #6 first + where to find Mike Bledsoe on the interwebs

Come join us at www.thestrongcoach.com

 

-Mike

Episode Breakdown:

 

0-10-  What a good coach is and how getting people the results they want.  Them discovering possibilities and them discovering it for themselves. Coaching is not deep trauma therapy or consulting.  It’s guiding and building performance in people. Coaching is becoming mainstream.

 

11-20 Having to work on your craft and that’s why coaches don’t have clients. Also, coaches are looking for clients in the wrong place. Coaches are going to people but not the businesses that need them.  Go to where high performers are going. Am I good? Then where do I go to get them? Understanding your dialogue with sales.

 

21-30 Why we need more coaches and how the world is progressing because we have an abundance of education and communication.  Every human being needs a little support understanding the world today. The dangers of this and getting bad information from people.

 

31-40 Principles that make great group. 1. Understanding You. 2. Methodology and the way you create change for your clients 3.   Business and the training on what it takes to build a business.

 

41-50  If you know about something then you learn from the next thing and from different people. Understanding the counter perspective of the perspective you know.  Ex. Learn psychology if you are a health coach etc. Find more fun things for your clients to have a fun experience with you. Making learning a directed learning and not reactive learning.

01:50:00

Ryan Fischer’s (@ryanfisch) entire life has always been about fitness. At the age of 12 he was a world ranked BMX racer.

Why You're Not Jacked: The Power of Enzymes w/ Bioptimizers - Real Chalk #58
01:16:32

Wade and Matt started their company after enzymes radically changed their lives. They knew the knowledge they were paying $1500 a month to obtain was too great to keep to themselves, so they found a way to spread it to the masses. The result is BiOptimizers: scientifically-backed enzyme supplements that flip the conventional understanding of "health" upside down.

 

We sit down to talk about our eating styles, our histories in the health and fitness sphere, a lot of nerdy sh*t about how enzymes work and your gut probably doesn’t, why so many people have adverse reactions to gluten and lactose, and how to eat a dozen Sidecar doughnuts in a sitting without dying. You might think you know some stuff about gut health, but these guys are here to break it down (pun intended) for you in ways that are easy to understand and a blast to listen to. Enjoy the ride!

 

1:00 🍩 What is an enzyme, and what does it do

2:45 🍩 Canola oil and heroin in the same sentence

5:00 🍩 Why the energy we ingest isn’t immediately accessible

7:20 🍩 Amino acids and the recovery process

9:15 🍩 100 grams of protein is...too much?

12:00 🍩 Wade’s story: Mr. Olympia to Mr. Marshmallow

16:30 🍩Why you need supplements to be your healthiest

17:20 🍩 Hydrochloric acid matters

20:20 🍩 The real advantage of intermittent fasting

21:30 🍩 Your commercial probiotic is a scam

27:30 🍩Milk really IS a bad choice

29:30 🍩 Gluten is a baseball, no wonder your body can’t digest it

31:15 🍩 Cronuts will change your life, and other fun donut facts

33:30 🍩 How to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, sort of

37:00 🍩 The most bang for your 1500 bucks: how BiOptimizers got started

38:30 🍩 How much protein do you really absorb from powder?

40:40 🍩 Things you didn’t want to know about “USDA certified organic” and gastrointestinal disease, and things you really do want to know about conditions enzymes can reverse

41:45 🍩 How CrossFit ruined women

44:00 🍩 Poop and your microbiome

48:00 🍩 Charles Poliquin, ethnicity and food responses, and epigenetics

51:50 🍩 What your blood work says about your diet

56:15 🍩 The alcohol hack you shouldn’t know

58:00 🍩 Did you know enzymes warp time?

58:50 🍩 The Batman enema (yep, you read that right)

1:01:20 🍩 Three things to do for better performance

1:02:30 🍩 Why a boring diet is the best diet

1:06:30 🍩 Discount code! And some guarantees. Because this stuff is legit.

1:08:00 🍩 Health is a spectrum. Don’t be dead.

Julien Pineau: The Difference Between A Trainer And A Coach — The Strong Coach #11
01:48:17

Julien Pineau is a Humanist & Movement Specialist and founder of StrongFit . Sports have been a part of Julien’s life since he was young and he’s been a state and national champion in a number of sports including soccer, swimming, and wrestling. As an adult, he really found something he liked with MMA and Jiu-Jitsu and spent time traveling the world to learn from the best in the industry.

 

The time spent Julien spent with the best made him want to learn more about sport and movement so that he could coach others. In 1993, he began his coaching career as a conditioning and grappling coach for the MMA gym where he trained and in 2008, he opened his own gym that focuses on strongman training. StrongFit was born and has evolved from a single gym to a full education program.

 

Julien’s brain is wired to see faulty patterns and visualize, in space, how people move. With his knack for diagnosing muscular and strength imbalances, he has developed his own system to identify what issues are and fight the root of the problem. He now travels the world delivering seminars to coaches who have the common goal of fixing people and ridding them of pain.

 

In 2018, Julien’s show on Barbell Shrugged was the most popular one! In this episode, we talk about apprenticeship to master yourself and better yourself, how to be in the present without distractions, understanding the nervous system and how it impacts your training, why looking at humans as machines have caused so much injury in the fitness industry, basing nutrition on what’s going to be happen in the next few hours rather than what happened in the past, and much more.

After she left the show, she again focused her career as a fitness trainer and improved her skills by adding Pilates and CrossFit to her workout.

 

In addition to her fitness, Jen is devoted towards charity. She has been on Goodwill Military Tours to raise troops' morale and has volunteered at orphanages and schools, helping kids find self-confidence through sports and gymnastics. Recently in 2017, Jen published a book named Diet Right for Your Personality Type: The Revolutionary 4-Week Weight-Loss Plan That Works for You.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Jen discusses her time on American Gladiator and The Biggest Loser, Leaving a lineage of strength for the world, body image and understanding the body positive movement, and helping women embrace strength training.

 

Enjoy!

Business Strategy and Development with Dennis and Kelsey of HIITBurn — Real Chalk #57
01:22:21

It's hard to remember a time before Instagram, but Dennis (@denheen) and Kelsey (@thedailykelsey) built their online training business the old-fashioned way (through Facebook and email). They took a chance, came up with a catchy name, HIIT Burn (@hiitburn), and the rest is laid out in detail for you in this episode. In their case, big risks and some smart marketing led to big rewards—it's a classic tale of entrepreneurship gone right, and you know that's Real CHALK's brand of protein powder.

 

Picking a great name, staying true to your brand, ad campaigns, the next big social media platform, and why haters should make you happy—if it's business- or marketing-related, we cover it. We also talk about Kelsey's experience with anorexia and how she's using her journey to recovery to help her clients understand the role that mindset plays in living a healthy lifestyle. In an oversaturated market, it's authenticity that draws people to your brand, and it doesn't get more real than this.

 

We switch to more lighthearted topics from there, like how brushing your teeth can earn you thousands of dollars, getting ripped like Brad Pitt in Fight Club, and why I've been posting proposal videos on my Instagram (sorry, you'll have to listen to find out the answer to that one 😉). You just never know where this episode will go next—but I know where I'm going, and that's the Bahamas! DM or email me your podcast guest requests!

 

-Ryan

The Bitcoin of Plants: Everything About CBD and The New Farm Bill — Real Chalk #56
01:28:15

You might know a thing or two about CBD, but I guarantee you are not on the level with Mike Banhagel, the founder of Seven Points CBD. This guy can define words most people can't pronounce, and he explains CBD from plant to product in a way that's fun and accessible. He answers all the hot-topic questions (drug tests? CBD for law enforcement? FDA regulation? Vaping) and tells consumers what questions they need to be asking in order to find the best products in a saturated market.

 

This episode is chalk-full of random references (have you seen Waterworld?), all kinds of semi-related stories from Dartmouth grads selling back supports to dogs on the Fourth of July, weird analogies like supermarket orange juice, and some inappropriate jokes about football games. You'll probably learn, you'll definitely laugh, and you'll be able to talk your less-knowledgeable friends off the ledge when they start freaking out about getting popped. Dive in!

 

Happy New Year!

– Ryan

Jess Magic: Creating a Voice for Freedom — The Bledsoe Show #115
01:23:04

Jess Magic is a heARTist, a soul-stirring songstress, and a muse for today's generation of change-makers. More than a singer, Jess is a musical story-teller who creates compelling opportunities for people to interact with life from an open heart.

 

In a world where so many are longing for deeper levels of connection, authentic expression and intimacy, Jess weaves a "spell" of love with each song and story to reveal aspects of the human experience that crack open the hearts of those who are touched by her presence.

 

As an emcee (a.k.a. "Mistress of Ceremonies"), a speaker and a social entrepreneur, Jess Magic uses her voice and charismatic presence to break down barriers between artist and audience, giving people permission to drop the masks and be seen in their most raw, joyful and sincere expression.

 

In this episode, we talk about how to really feel freedom and fulfillment, how to have songversations, how to have the heart take information and really feel it, singing in public, feeling safe and free while getting over past fears, how to free your voice and build a connection, the ways Jess dealt with grief but didn’t stay in grief, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

 

-Mike

Jeff & Derz: The Way Ahead: What's Next For Feed Me Fuel Me in 2019  — Feed Me Fuel Me #119
37:21

Closing out 2018 on the highest of highs! Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) and Derz (@coachderz) are moving full steam ahead with Feed Me Fuel Me TV. Our time with the Shrugged Collective (@shruggedcollective) has come to an end. We've learned a ton of lessons and have created a space that is open for collaboration in the future. Don't be surprised if you catch us making cameos on the Collective in the future.

 

It would be a massive understatement to say that 2018 was enlightening. We made some extremely genuine relationships and had some of the deepest and dopest conversations ever! We broke the mold with topics on masculinity, vulnerability, embracing your story, and living a legacy worth leaving. We interviewed intuitive clairvoyants, life coaches, business consultants, professional athletes, fit pros, doctors, entrepreneurs, and people from so many epic walks of life. The common denominator is the willingness to be authentic and vulnerably deliver their stories in a way that struck massive chords with you, our tribe, our listeners.

 

This week, we reflect on the year that was: lessons learned and empowering moments. Huge thanks to The Shrugged Collective and sharing in this great journey of ours. We're forever grateful for the solid friendships we've created with them.

 

Moving into 2019, you can catch us on all things Feed Me Fuel Me. Keep up with us and the exciting people we connect with on our youtube channel and feedmefuelme.com.

 

We look forward to empowering your journey with so much more content as we cruise into the new year. Stay tuned for what's next in 2019!!

 

- Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) and Mycal (@coachderz)

Andrea Ager is passion personified. She attacks everything she does with her whole heart, whether it’s running track, competing in CrossFit, coaching her AgerBomb seminars, or sharing her faith. As a high-level athlete and an instructor, she knows it’s crucial to never stop learning about training and nutrition for herself so that she can better serve her clients. Andrea’s drive to never stop improving has inspired some crazy decisions, like leaving the CrossFit coaching staff to branch out on her own and moving halfway across the country to train for the Games with a team she’d never met (and get to know a certain guy better 😉).

 

Andrea’s a Colorado native now living in New York, but we used to train together in LA back in the early days of CrossFit so you know this episode includes some reminiscing about Regionals (RIP), references to He Who Should Not Be Named (that’s Dave Castro for you uneducated folk), and a discussion about the realness of competition depression and the danger of letting your performance as an athlete define who you are. We share some pros and cons of being your own boss, make fun of the “Instagram models” New York is overrun with, and explain the necessity of having several pursuits if you’re going to make it as an entrepreneur. I ask Andrea to talk about her experience with Faith RX’d, and she gives the Cliffs Notes version of how she met her husband (first year of marriage insights included! Listen up kids).

 

It’s a conversation between two old friends with a great vibe and a ton of helpful info for people interested in setting out on their own. It’s a little deep, a little silly, a little weird (just wait for the gummy bear analogy), and a lot awesome.

 

Enjoy!

– Ryan

01:15:55

Tero Isokauppila (@iamtero) is a a Finnish nomad turned into a fungi lovin’ foodpreneur. He is the president and founder of Four Sigmatic (@foursigmatic) — A mushroom and superfoods company that creates products to help you live a better and healthier life. Tero’s dream is to bring back the ancient mushroom wisdom to modern lifestyle.

 

In his native Finland, Tero grew up on his family’s centuries-old farm regularly foraging for mushrooms. He holds a degree in both chemistry and plant-based nutrition from Cornell University, and was awarded a Finnish innovation award for discovering that the Japanese matsutake mushroom also grows in Finland.

 

Tero was chosen as one of the world’s Top 50 Food Activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and has been featured in Vogue, Time, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. He’s also the author of Healing Mushrooms: A Practical and Culinary Guide to Using Mushrooms for Whole Body Health.

 

In this episode, we talk about why mouth breathing means your disconnected, why Tero started Four Sigmatic in 2012 and what his inspiration was for introducing mushrooms and adaptogens to become an 8 figure business, why adaptogens give you leeway to navigate hard times in life, natural vs. synthetic and the pursuit of truth with science, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

Kyle Mauch: Stop Trying to Discover Your Purpose. Start Living Life On Purpose  — Feed Me Fuel Me #118
01:25:18

This week Jeff and Derz sit down with the founder of Athlete's Brand (@athletesbrand), Kyle Mauch (@kylemauch) and discuss what is truly possible! One of the most common questions we are asked as a result of our discussions is how you go about discovering your purpose. When you ask Kyle, he'll tell you that you're asking the wrong question. To know your purpose is to know WHY you were put on this earth. That is a subjective question that is usually left to the interpretation of those that you've impacted. If you knew WHY you were born, there would be no deviation from your path. You would do those deeds, accomplish those goals, without obstacle and no distraction. We all know that is not reality. Seeking purpose can give you a sense of fulfillment. A feeling of impact. Feelings often misinterpreted as purpose.

That is what Kyle does now for professional athletes and high performers. He guides them in clarifying their legacy. He helps them discover what they care about most deeply and assists them in building their legacy around that cause. While their social capital and influence is at its peak, his mission is to maximize that notoriety and create a legacy that will outlast their athletic career. However, it took a chance conversation with a mentor to help Kyle reframe the mission of Athlete's Brand into something bigger than creating charitable apparel.

The question we should all be asking ourselves, which Kyle has answered for himself is this: How can I deliver the biggest impact in the short time that I have on this earth?

When it is all said and done, the answer to that question should get you out of bed in the morning. It will guide the direction of your life and serve you as you serve others. Drop what you're doing, and listen closely as Kyle outlines what it means to live life ON PURPOSE!

Drugs, Women, Murder, and CrossFit: The Story of Vincent Miceli — Real Chalk #54
01:04:13

From Wall Street cold calling to owning a successful gym in NYC with a detour into the nightclub scene along the way, Vincent Miceli’s career trajectory is all over the map and he has got some stories. I caught up with him at Solace to compare notes on gyms as businesses, how to create great programming, and what we would do differently if we could start all over.

 

Vincent talks about his own weight-loss journey (he lost almost 100 pounds in a year) and how he got into CrossFit (spoiler: it involved flipping a coin). We get real about what we look for in coaches, wonder where the insanely energetic people coaching SoulCycle classes come from, and break down what running a gym really looks like when you get down to the expenses. It’s a little bit of storytelling, a little bit of insight offering, a little bit of knowledge dropping, and a hell of a lot of fun. With Vincent’s “there is no ceiling” mentality, anything is possible—and this episode is proof of that.

 

Buckle up!

- Ryan

27:10 How to make shit happen: be the person with the most passion and the best perspective

28:30 Give the people what they want: different classes for different interests

29:30 The good and the bad about Marcus Filly’s program, and why HIIBB works

31:00 Tendinosis and Active Life

34:00 Programming overlap: how TBB solves the problem—power to the people

35:30 The opex model

36:30 CrossFitters are brats, and the interest is fading

40:00 How do you find high-energy coaches?

42:15 Don’t do the stupid shit—what causes injury

43:00 How hard is making money with a gym, and what makes a coach worth paying?

47:15 Incentivization and why it’s slippery

52:00 Three things that could change, and three things that were great ideas

57:00 “The only major difference is I owned more things”—more money doesn't necessarily mean more happiness

Ken Kilday: The New Tough Leader - Being a Leader Means Not Only Knowing The Words to Say, But Also Putting Action Behind Those Words  — Feed Me Fuel Me #117
01:07:13

According to our guest this week, leadership coach and mentor, Ken Kilday, the failure of leadership presently lies in the fact that people in influential positions know the words to say, yet aren't capable of putting action behind those words. There tend to be two kinds of leaders that seek Ken's counsel: those that are proactive, seeking to bring their blindspots and shortcomings to the forefront, and those that are reacting to a failed state of leadership and Ken's coaching is a last ditch effort to right the ship.

 

Part of the definition of leadership is to influence. Another way of putting it is to influence another to do what you want when they otherwise wouldn't.

 

Ken’s breadth of leadership experience provides him the unique ability to help leaders understand that effecting positive change is the key to overall success. The challenges of navigating ever-changing corporate cultures, bureaucracies, and financial goals provided the catalyst for him to create a business consulting firm based on

 

The ‘New-Tough Leader’ mentality of success equips leaders with tools to expect the best, lead with compassion, and inspire each individual to their greatest strengths in order to create an environment of success for themselves and their teams.

 

Dive in with us and listen closely as Ken explains what it means to be a New Tough Leader!

Why Our Parents Had Nutrition all Wrong and Raising Ryan Fischer w/ Ryan’s Mom — Real Chalk #53
01:36:37

 

 

What do nutrition trends, ex-girlfriend stories, and family gossip have in common? They all get air time on this long-awaited episode featuring my mom, the one and only Kim Karecky. She’s been my biggest supporter through all my endeavors, and she’s here to talk about how the definition of “healthy” has changed in her lifetime and what she’s learned about her own eating habits. We take a look in her fridge, reminisce about my childhood, and swap stories that will make you laugh out loud.

 

You may have listened to other podcasts about my background, but you’ve never gotten the kind of inside look that this episode will give you—from my favorite snacks as a kid, to what it was like to call girls in high school, to how I became the crazy-jacked track athlete in high school. It’s all here, and it’s all riddled with commentary from the woman who knows me best. She tells it like it is and is unashamedly herself, iced coffee obsession and all.

 

As always, there’s a ton of great info packed in here too, both common sense and totally nonsensical. Do you know how low-quality fat affects your brain? Did you know you can pull your heart muscle? Or that if you’re short enough, you can get a handicapped placard?

 

Listen and enjoy!!

- Ryan

43:30 Fridge clean-out: Ryan’s mom edition

45:45 How food labels trick you

54:00 “Organic” is a lie

55:30 Kim’s got a point: you don’t see recalls on ice cream and candy bars

59:30 “Sensible eating” looks different for everyone

1:00:00 Your brain on low-quality fat, and why it’s harder to be healthy than it used to be (RIP milkmen)

1:05:00 Even wild animals are getting sick

1:06:30 What you need to know about “grass-fed”

1:08:30 Raw milk is a terrible choice (bacon and bear meat are also bad)

1:14:30 Why there’s corn syrup in everything, and no actual maple syrup in maple syrup

1:19:30 Welch’s grape jelly is really just sugar

Building Something Bigger Than Yourself Serves You As Much As It Serves Others w/ Jon Boles  — Feed Me Fuel Me #116
01:17:36

This week we are on the mic with business coach and entrepreneur, Jon Boles. Jon is an embodiment of evolution, both in purpose and in business.

 

Hailing from smalltown middle America, Jon's parents separated when he was just 5 years old. From there his life would never be the same. Living two different lives, under two separate roofs. As he got into high school, he would become better known in his neighborhood for dealing drugs, than a standout athlete. It was through this experience that he learned how to, and more importantly, how not to do business. His secret would eventually be discovered by his parents, and make his way into rehab.

 

After rehab, and serious self-discovery, Jon moved into the city, where he found his true gift: NETWORKING. He moved away from pedaling dope, to creating nightlife experiences and connecting people, slowly building a new business model in the process.

 

Thriving on this creative genius, Jon has built, and sold multiple companies, and has learned to dampen the inner dialogue of shame associated with his life path. He has overcome much, and is now on a mission to affect millions with the launch of his newest venture, Avintiv Media. This week we cover everything from embracing your past, maximizing your influence for the greater good, and not being ashamed of your growth and abundance.

 

Let us know what resonates with you after hearing Jon's journey! We appreciate you joining us on this week's episode of Feed Me Fuel Me on the Shrugged Collective!

Bret Contreras: The Strength Coach Empowerment Model vs The Rehab Dependency Model — Barbell Shrugged #361
02:02:08

Bret Contreras has become known in the strength and conditioning industry as the Glute Guy because of his expertise in helping clients develop strong, shapely glutes. As the former owner of Lifts Studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, he has worked closely with hundreds of clients ranging from sedentary people to elite athletes, and he invented a glute-strengthening machine called the Hip Thruster.

 

Bret currently trains figure competitors, writes programs for clients from all over the world, and consults for various professional sport teams. He is the author of the bestselling book Bodyweight Strength Training Anatomy and co-author of Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body.

 

In this episode, we talk about why corrective exercises do not work, why a qualified strength coach is more important than a rehab specialist, how to find a strength coach that understand proper progressions for injuries, why strength training is so much safer and healthier than being weak, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Training NFL Athletes, Increase Recovery by 75%, and Neurological Training for Odell Beckham Athleticism w/ Christopher Knott  — Real Chalk #52
01:48:47

Innovation is the name of the game, and Chris Knott is at the forefront. As a former professional baseball player, Chris started learning about the role the brain plays in recovery when he didn't want surgery on his pitching arm. He's so good at what he does now that he's sought after by household-name athletes like Odell Beckham, Jr. Chris' approach to injury prevention and recovery looks at the body as a whole, and doesn't stop when the pain goes away.

 

It's not a one-size-fits-all methodology either — Chris uses his in-depth understanding of physiology to identify each athlete's unique weaknesses, and works to change the necessary stimuli to target them.

 

You know how Real CHALK episodes go: we drop a lot of knowledge, we talk a lot of sh*t, and we flip the scripts on a whole bunch of common health and fitness misconceptions. We also tell it like it is and say the things no one wants to hear (like if you have to ask if you can make it to the CrossFit Games, you can't).

 

Do you know why muscle stim isn't actually effective recovery? Turns out the Soviets are smarter than we are and if you're a habitual foam roller, you're most likely doing it all wrong. Want to be a trainer for pro athletes? Chris has some straightforward advice for you: don't. He also has wisdom to share about creating a positive culture in a gym, what recovery should actually look like, and why the proven method is probably not the best one. And have you ever wondered how your trainer feels about your bench press goal?

 

We get brutally honest about clients, coaches, and the reality of the fitness industry—while also explaining a ton of acronyms you can use to impress your friends. Check it out!

It Takes Vulnerability To Get Through Trauma w/ Milam Byers  — Feed Me Fuel Me #115
01:14:02

Milam Byers goes deep with us this week on Feed Me Fuel Me.

The lead guitarist of the band Bleach shares his experience with reforming his identity after the band broke up. How do you stay positive. How do you remain present for your family, your wife, your kids, after everything you’ve ever known is over and done with?

Compound your identity crisis with the loss of your brother on the battlefield of the war in Afghanistan, and you have a lot to process very quickly. Only through the expression of vulnerability, and the humility of voicing everything he kept inside, was Milam able to overcome the end of and old life, and loss of a loved one.

Now he has shifted gears and made it his life’s mission to empower those that have less. Driving the mission of Food for the Hungry  and Striking Out Poverty, Milam is connecting athletes with a passion for change with communities that struggle in the third world.

In Milam’s words, “No one ever got upset because they gave too much.” Enjoy Milam’s journey and thanks for joining us for this week’s episode!

Rock Bottom to Rock Star w/ Chad Mcbain  — Real Chalk #51
01:40:47

Social media is the future, and in order to dominate your field you must have a strong social media presence with unique influencers, organic content, and ingenious marketing. Which is why you are about to listen to my man Chad McBain.

 

Chad has helped build several 7 figure businesses by being the “man behind the scenes” and setting a ridiculous standard for what it means to be an expert in social media marketing. Are you having trouble in this area at all!? Then this is definitely the episode for you. Chad lays out some ground rules that make people successful or ultimately make people broke. Having been in his own whirlwind of ups and downs, like myself, he points out the most important factors that kept him motivated during every step of the way.

 

We also touch on several new business ventures that he is currently working on with his significant other (Laci Kay Somers @lacikaysomers… Who just happens to have 10M followers) including cryptocurrency, music, and exotic car businesses.

 

This episode literally has a little bit of EVERYTHING in it with a super casual feel. You’re going to learn a ton while also feeling like you’re sitting on the couch right next to us. Let’s bro out, get motivated, and learn some things. From rock bottom to rock star… Have great listen!

The Man, The Myth, The Mushroom: Storytime with the Founder of Four Sigmatic, Tero Isokauppila  — Real Chalk #50
01:06:24

Tero Isokauppila knows more about mushrooms than you ever thought possible, and he breaks it all down in ways that the average human can understand. (Don’t want to be an average human? Start drinking mushroom coffee.) Originally from Finland, Tero has farming and science in his blood, and he brings this heritage to bear in everything he does with his company, Four Sigmatic. It’s his goal to improve people’s life quality, using nutrition as a stepping stone to whole-person wellness.

 

His new book, Santa Sold Shrooms, will be published soon and it will blow your mind. We talk about the origin of the Santa Claus story we know today (hint: it involves psychedelic mushrooms), and dive into the controversial possibility that well-known religions were based on mushroom-induced hallucinations.

 

Tero explains the meaning of Four Sigmatic, how cordyceps were discovered, and why you shouldn’t eat raw mushrooms—using a semen analogy—as well as how foods become superfoods and why we need to care about eye health. It’s an info-packed episode that will make you feel smarter before you’ve even started drinking Lion’s Mane. Get educated!



Episode Highlights:

2:50 🍄 Tero’s origins: degrees, parents, heritage

4:20 🍄 Why natural supplements don’t appeal to athletes, but adaptogens are different

7:00 🍄 Some science-y sh*t about nutrient density, and what “four sigmatic” means

9:10 🍄 If you give a yak a mushroom...(how cordyceps was discovered)

11:15 🍄 Why you shouldn’t eat raw mushrooms (there’s a sperm analogy in here)

13:15 🍄 The cure for cancer is...mushrooms??

17:00 🍄 The new marketing landscape, and how information spreads

18:50 🍄 The four mushroom pillars

21:40 🍄 The next uncharted territories: eye health, immunity

28:00 🍄 The different kinds of magic mushrooms

29:40 🍄 What we currently know about mushrooms’ effect on the brain

31:50 🍄 The evolution of Santa Sold Shrooms

33:40 🍄 Details and spoilers

35:00 🍄 What do mushrooms have to do with religion? More than you might think

38:15 🍄 Rock-, plastic-, and oil spill-eating mushrooms

41:30 🍄 How a food gets to be super (Tero hates the word “superfood,” by the way)

45:00 🍄 The Four Sigmatic process, and how to sniff out a bullsh*t product

49:00 🍄 Don’t buy protein powder from China.

54:50 🍄 What a mushroom newbie needs to know

57:00 🍄 Books and other resources

 

Enjoy-

Ryan

The Path from CrossFit Coach to Marine, Finding a Mentor In Your Gym, and Mental Toughness for Marine Training w/ Jessica Woods  — Feed Me Fuel Me #113
01:07:44

When Jessica Woods came to CrossFit PHX life was not going her way. Back in Arizona and going through divorce, she was lost in a fog of indecision. It took almost a year to get back on her feet. Along the way, she had convinced herself that fitness was her life path, and made every attempt to prove that story true.

Although she was having an incredibly positive impact on those she served as a trainer and coach, she still felt empty inside. As we've proven time and again through the stories of our guests on Feed Me Feed Me Fuel Me, timing is everything.

Through soul searching and a few chance conversations with mentors like Derz, Jessica discovered that nursing was her calling, and decided to pave her new life path as a corpsman in the US Navy. As fate would have it, she ended up "greenside" serving alongside Marines.

We catch up with Jessica as life has come full circle to see what she has manifested in her new life of service!

Thank you to Jessica and all our service men and women!

Finding Purpose in Prison w/ Eric Bassett  — Real Chalk #49
01:05:22

Eric Bassett is the brain behind EB30X, a 30-minute workout that changes lives. His brick-and-mortar gym is located in Illinois, but he trains people around the country and he won’t turn anyone down no matter what their physical limitations are. Everyone wants to train fit people, but Eric is working hard to bring fitness and health to the people who need it most. The videos of him training with clients (or “teammates,” as he calls them) who have upwards of 100 pounds to lose have gone viral and gained him lots of attention in the fitness world.

I sat down with Eric at the Fit Expo in San Diego to talk about his brand and his experience with building his business. We discuss the similarities and differences in our stories, how we found our callings, and why failure isn’t the worst thing. Turns out, landing in a federal prison camp can be exactly what needs to happen for you to figure out what your purpose in life is—who knew?! Plus, we take some hits at those pyramid scheme-based shake companies, hate on water breaks and Botox, and deal some hard truth about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. This episode is a wild ride, don’t miss it!

Losing A Father and Learning Forgive Doesn’t Mean Forget w/ Kory Cook  — Feed Me Fuel Me #112
01:18:23

Before Kory launched Korporate Wellness, he was tested numerous times. Life attempted to derail him or test his commitment in every way imaginable. The greatest test came by way of his father leaving him and his mother when bottom fell out of the economy. To say he's lived a life of constant transition since then would be an understatement.  

 

We caught up with Kory not long after he reconnected with his father. His outlook on their relationship will leave you with a breath of hope. He has become a success despite his many transitions and the absence of his father. This week on Feed Me Fuel Me we sit down with Kory, now thriving and coaching at CrossFit 760, to discover how he developed the strength to forgive!

AMRAP Mentality for Fitness, Business, and Personal Success w/ Jason Khalipa  — Barbell Shrugged #353
01:05:52

Jason Khalipa is a former CrossFit Games world champion, author, and lifelong competitor. Jason is also the CEO and Founder of NCFIT, a global company aimed at making fitness effective, fun, and accessible.

 

In January 2016, Jason and his family were faced with a parent’s worst nightmare. Jason’s daughter Ava was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of four. As all things in life, Jason and his family embraced Ava’s diagnosis, and faced it with unyielding positivity.

 

Cancer, especially when it affects a child, isn’t the easiest conversation to have, but Jason has approached the subject with compassion and a determination to spread awareness. With all the confidence that Ava will win her battle, Jason aims to support other families faced with the same adversity. Jason and his wife have since focused on philanthropy and spreading awareness for pediatric cancer.

 

Jason is also one of the most accomplished athletes in CrossFit Games history. In 2008, Jason was crowned the Fittest Man on Earth. He has also earned top finishes including placements as the 5th, 16th, 7th, 5th, 2nd, and 3rd Fittest Man on Earth.

Memoirs of My Ex-Girlfriend (A Model, Mom, & Entrepreneur) w/ Nikki Leonard  — Real Chalk #48
01:07:16

Nikki Leonard has been in the social media and fitness industry for over 10 years. She has been the face of massive supplements brands, a figure champion, a CrossFit athlete, and currently a mom/entrepreneur. Having been part of her life for a little over 2 years, I had the opportunity to watch and learn so much from her in terms of social media and business building.

Nikki also happens to be beautiful and hilarious which as we know is a rare combo in this day an age. In this episode we literally hit just about everything for a few minutes including her relationships with these past companies, her personal life, a bunch of hilarious history between us (which never disappoints), her new fitness app, and life as a Mom.

I think so many of you out there who have been following me for a long time are really going to enjoy this episode - as well as the true Nikki Rica fans out there. Funny, personal, real, and you’re going to feel like your sitting down with some of your best friends just shooting the sh*^.

 

- Ryan

P.S. Nikki has created a subscription based Fitness App called Nikki Rica Fit available worldwide on iTunes with 12 weeks worth of workouts as well as her newly developed 6 week Prenatal Program for expecting mothers. Most recently Nikki has re-introduced the Nikki Rica Fit Challenge which is a 6 week Transformation Challenge that includes a Workout Program & Meal Plan that is 100% Customized to the participant’s lifestyle, work schedule, goals & equipment that is accessible to them.

There is a point in everyone's life when they realize that they have been playing it small. On the other side of that moment you have to make a decision: Continue life in the shadows of others or start playing to your fullest potential.

 

Our guest this week made that choice and is playing it bigger than ever! Ashley Bledsoe crushes this episode of Feed Me Fuel Me. If you are in a relationship this one’s for you.

Electrical Brain Stimulation for Optimal Performance w/ Dr. Daniel Chao — Barbell Shrugged #349
01:17:57

Dr. Daniel Chao, CEO of Halo Neuroscience and creator of Halo Sport, dedicated his whole life to understanding the brain and its function. Specifically, how electrical stimulation can help the brain more rapidly improve physical performance, cognitive function, and overall happiness.

 

Halo Sport is the first-ever brain stimulator used to accelerate movement-based learning. In other words, it speeds up the development of skill, strength, and endurance, depending on the type of training that you pair with it.

 

Halo Sport works by applying non-invasive, mild electrical current to the motor cortex (part of the brain responsible for movement), allowing your brain to build stronger connections and learn movement faster. For example: You can wear Halo Sport for 20 minutes before your training session, which gives you one hour of what neuroscientists call “hyperlearning” or “hyperplasticity”. Training with it accelerates gains across skill, strength, and endurance.

 

In this episode, we talk to Dr. Chao about how the brain is wired for movement, how to increase mastery of movements by 50%, incorporating meditation and visualization into performance that matters, how to increase fine motor skills and advanced movements through brain stimulation, how to maximize performance in CrossFit with 20 minutes of use in your warm up, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Testosterone, Sex Hormones & Hormonal Health w/ Laurie Christine King  — Real Chalk #46
01:15:00

Laurie Christine King (@lauriechristineking) is a dietetics grad, nutrition coach, educational blogger, and total badass in the nutrition and fitness space who utilizes social media as a free educational platform and specializes in hormone health.

 

Not only that, but she has a way of saying things that’s much more untraditional than most. Don’t get me wrong, it's always incredibly accurate, insightful, and well researched... It’s also hilarious, witty, and kind of truck driver-ish which makes it incredibly easy to read and listen to. The dynamic duo of Fisch + LCK will have you laughing your ass right out of your seat.

 

In this episode, we talk extensively on both men and women’s hormone health and cover topics including low testosterone, gynecomastia, testosterone therapy, and how to naturally improve hormone health. We then flip the script for the ladies and talk about something that may be tanking your sex drive, causing thyroid issues, keeping you from seeing gains in the gym, losing fat, or having the body composition you want.

 

This is the first time I’ve had a topic like this on the show and also the first time I’ve had someone on with a mouth just as dirty as mine. Get ready to learn a TON and have a blast while doing it. Tag and your share with your friends - this is an episode you wan’t want to miss!

His unconventional approach to training is based on his belief in function over muscle. This philosophy has lead him to the use of tools such as kettle bells, battle ropes, sandbags, body weight, and his favorite- steel mace. Leo is also a certified trainer through the ONNIT Academy in multiple disciplines: ONNIT Academy Foundations, Durability, Unconventional barbell, Battle ropes, Kettle Bells, and Steel Mace.

Serena Elizabeth, a.k.a. Steel Mace Gypsy, is a certified Steel Mace Coach, a Steel Mace Flow Guru, and an Onnit Steel Mace Specialist.

In this episode, we talk about how “The Steel Mace” makes you look like a badass warrior, how does this one tool heal your body and wake up to train all aspects of core and all the spaces in between with a 360-degree swing, and how ‘The Steel Mace’ impacted people on a deeper level not just their physique and how you can create the world you want with this practice.

We also dive into how The Strong Coach program changed Leo’s relationship with money and how to be open to receiving, as well as the freedom found by The Strong Coach and how Serena can simply just “Be” now. Leo and Serena both achieved a new-found confidence from The Strong Coach program and they trust themselves as coaches more than ever. Find out how to get the first week of The Strong Coach program for FREE!

 

Enjoy!

Hermonia w/ Jill Petersen  — Feed Me Fuel Me #109
01:13:51

Continuing our series of badass females on Feed Me Fuel Me, is Jill Petersen, founder of Hermonia. Jill has been on journey of personal growth and development for some time now.

 

As she would grow to find, the path to happiness and fulfillment begins within. Through an extensive process she was required to ask herself the deepest questions and find the gaps in her development. Jill was required to confront the reality that her failed relationships were the results of a void left behind by personal struggles with family. The kicker is, the stories Jill created, didn't even belong to her. She was subconsciously holding on to others' pain, validating a story that didn't really exist.

 

After a significant battle with postpartum depression, Jill realized that she needed to work on herself. Not only for herself, but also for her relationship with her husband, family and friends. Then came her epiphany: she wasn't the only one. That said, not many women are empowered with skills and tools to facilitate that kind of deep work on their own.

 

Insert Hermonia! Jill has created a service in which she coaches women to a place of strength where they were once weak. She has created a platform for women to find their voice again! Join us this week and learn about Jill's journey and the abundance she now lives in as a result of her mission to deliver strength where it was once absent for so many!!

 

Enjoy!

The Inspiring Story of a WWE Superstar and Serial Entrepreneur w/ Natalie Eva Marie  — Real Chalk #45
01:36:42

I’ve been friends with Natalie Eva Marie and Jonathan Coyle for years, and it’s unbelievable how much these two do. They’re some of the coolest people I know, and yet they’re still down to earth enough to send me a text to see how I’m doing or invite me over for a BBQ.

 

You might recognize Natalie from WWE's Smackdown LIVE in 2013, whose roster also features wrestlers like John Cena, or from the movie Inconceivable, which she starred in opposite Academy Award winners Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway. Natalie also had cameo roles on “Entourage,” “CSI: New York,” and “90210.” But don’t label her an actress just yet — She’s also a beauty and fitness expert with her own fashion and hair extension lines! She’s also been on the cover of literally every magazine and appeared in two video games.

 

Her husband Jonathan studied law before deciding to get his MBA instead. He also had his time in the spotlight — He was the face of several super-successful supplement brands, and campaigns like NIKE | UNBROKEN before he became Natalie’s full-time manager. He knows his stuff and he’s truly the brains behind the operation for this woman and all that she has going on.

 

It’s Natalie and Jonathan’s candor and passion that made them a blast to have as podcast guests. They have an amazing story to tell, and I can’t wait for you to hear it! Here we go!

Building A Badass  — Big Brother & A Bigger Lesson  — 7
47:13

Big Brother came into my life when I wasn’t myself and was struggling to reconnect with myself.

 

In this episode of Building A Badass, I talk about my experience on Big Brother (the TV show), how breaking my foot put me in a deeper dark place, how coming out of the house was a harder shell shock than I could have imagined, and how the messages of my fans helped me reconnect to myself and my why, pulling me back to a positive place.

 

2017 was hard as hell, but it was preparing me for the greatest gift I was going to receive in 2018, a child. This is the story of my struggle and what brought me out of it just in time to truly appreciate the largest blessing in my life, pregnancy.

 

Stay Relentless,

Let's Get Weird w/ Ronnie Teasdale  — Real Chalk #44
01:31:32

This episode is with an all time favorite guest, Mr. Ronnie Teasdale (@ra_of_earth), a.k.a Ravi Chander. He’s such an interesting character that literally every minute spent talking to him just brightens your day.

As an old friend and employee of his from the days of “Mean Streets” in Los Angeles... I’ve had a front row seat for his current journey. He’s gone from a regionals level CrossFIt athlete, gym owner, to training for the circus, a yogi, and is currently a student of all things life (and beyond).

Ronnie has a very interesting view on the ways he sees the world and the way he lives his life. For what may seem like pure “weirdness” to pretty much everyone, it’s really hard to not agree with almost everything he says.

In this episode, we touch on some MIND BLOWING stuff, including orgasms (a few other sex topics), the “reality” of “multiple realities”, and even religious beliefs (for a little). It will be the easiest and fastest listen you’ve had on a podcast in a while... And when it’s over... You’ll be thirsty for more.

Let’s enter the world of Ronnie Teasdale ladies and gentlemen. Buckle your seatbelt, it’s going to be a bumpy one ;)

Matt Cooper, a.k.a Coop, is a nutrition consultant, strength & conditioning coach, and sport scientist from California. Driven by an obsession to expand human performance, Coop spends his time researching, experimenting, doing nerdy things, and building better humans in general at Stand Out Performance (Fast Twitch LA) in Compton, California.

 

Coop’s own personal journey began in athletics and fitness, until poor health and mental states befell him at an early age. This lead to him to become his own practitioner, and fuels his current work, marrying functional medicine and human performance to create suprahumans.

 

In this episode, we talk about psychedelics and human performance, training from a holistic perspective, mega-dosing and bio hacking with nutrition, why stress is a habit that can eventually embedded trauma into your nervous system, signs of overtraining and what this does to your equilibrium, tips to athletes who have hit a wall, how psychedelics can improve athletic qualities by accelerating learning skills, and more.

Enjoy!

Charlie Engle is an ultramarathon runner, an adventure-seeker, a global explorer, and a philanthropist. He's also a recovering crack addict, a convicted felon, and a man driven to the edge of human endurance and achievement.

 

Charlie is the author of Running Man: A Memoir of Ultra-Endurance, a gripping, vivid, gritty, funny, unforgettable memoir chronicling his globe-spanning races, his record-breaking 4500-mile run across the Sahara Desert, his decade long struggle with addiction, and an unfortunate stint in federal prison for mortgage fraud.

 

In this episode, we talk about how Charlie went from doing crack cocaine to ultra marathons, whether running is a healthy addiction, how Charline ran two marathons a day for 111 straight days, the chronicles of starting a foundation with Matt Damon for clean drinking water, and more.

Building A Badass  — National Best Seller  — 6
46:10

In this episode of Building A Badass, I talk about having confidence in your own work and knowledge, and what you can give the world by being who you are. I tell you how I unexpectedly became a writer through living my passion and being curious about the world.

 

Through passion I was able to explore what good nutrition looked like, and figure out what works for me. Using those tools, I just kept growing my confidence stronger and stronger, which eventually led me to end up in a National Best Seller list.

 

Stay Relentless,

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Leader of Leaders w/ Aaron Guyett  — 107
01:02:08

Our guest this week, Aaron Guyett (@aaronguyett) has been given a warrior mind and body, that MUST serve, sacrifice, and lead in love for God and his fellow man. As a father, Marine, and coach, his why is summed up in seven words:

 

"Give your life in love for others."

 

Aaron wants people to know that they are loved and they matter. His intention through Leaders of Leaders (@leadersofleaders) is to give all of himself so that others may be lifted up for something greater than themselves. He cannot stand people mistreating the weak, taking advantage of the poor, or giving up to a life of victimhood. He believes we are all strong beyond measure, and even more so when we experience God's love and everlasting life.

 

Thanks for joining us this week, and let us know what stays with you after listening to Aaron's journey on this episode of Feed Me Fuel Me!

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Maternity Expert, Entrepreneur & Certified Boss Ass Bit*^ w/ Nancy Anderson  — 43
01:15:05

This episode is peppered in with all the things; how to start and grow an online business, follow your dreams while answering to no one, raising the standard of care for pregnancy and post pregnancy women, debunking pregnancy fitness myths, nutrition chat, and so much more.

 

Fitness and nutrition expert, Nancy Anderson (@nancyandersonfit) M.S. Kinesiology, has paved the way for women to be less scared of “ruining” their bodies from pregnancy, training hard during pregnancy (Crossfit anyone?!), prioritizing self care, and being the breadwinner in her family. Gender norms? WTF is that? She gets raw, real, and down and dirty to how she moved her training business from the gym to online and is on her way to almost a 10x year in her second year of business.

 

In this episode, she chats about how she did it, her tips for others who want to start their own business, finding your passion, and how to stand out in an industry that is so inundated with the “kardashian effect” as she calls it - meaning seeing through the ‘fake-ness’ on social media.

 

Mom of 2 (both c-sections), Nancy trains over 1,000 moms every month online helping them train for pregnancy, train during pregnancy, heal their bodies and bounce back post pregnancy without any of the fluffy pink dumbbell bullshi*t. Real programs, real workouts, real results, based on real science.

 

Listen here for all of this and more plus a few f*bombs. Sorry in advance!

The Bledsoe Show — Paris Robinson: Surviving Gangs, Drugs and Prison - 102
01:28:45

Paris Robinson survived drug addictions, being shot 4 times, became homeless and paralyzed. In this episode, Paris opens up about the failings of chasing material and outer things to fix inner happiness, going from football role models to gangster role models, heroine, crack, mushrooms and trying to find drugs of choice to try to fix life problems.

Paris also talks about how he found supportive people even behind bars, how he received messages from his dead mother that gave him hope to live, how he overcame what was medically impossible to find body movement again, how deciding to do that one thing you've never done might change your life, keeping to the present times so you don't fall back to your old ways, finding strength to stay focused and on track, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Barbell Shrugged  — I Want Villians in CrossFit w/ Aaron Hinde  — 342
01:13:12

Aaron Hinde is Co-Founder and President of LIFEAID Beverage Company, a leading manufacturer of premium, healthy, and convenient nutritional products designed to boost performance and speed recovery for people pursuing active and healthy lifestyles.

 

Aaron's passion for athleticism and his ability to equip people with the formula to perform at maximum capacity has played a major role throughout my career. After earning a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College, he served as Clinic Director at Hinde Chiropractic Sports Injury and Pain Center for over ten years. As one of the top practices in Santa Cruz County, he helped over 5,000 individuals, including professional athletes, erase their pain and return to function as quickly as possible.

 

Being immersed in the health field, Aaron noticed a genuine need in the marketplace for clean and effective sports drinks without the sugar and artificial flavoring. In 2011, he co-founded LIFEAID to provide individuals with specially formulated, low-sugar, high-value natural supplement beverages.

 

In this episode, we talk about the future of Fitaid IPO, growing successful companies inside CrossFit, throwing the baddest CrossFit Games afterparty, steroids in the CrossFit Game season, managing the messaging between sport and health in CrossFit, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Building A Badass — Nascar - I Got Duped! — 5
54:45

Hustling hard and taking only one day off per month, I had a full plate living out my dreams. I was invited to a NASCAR day in Charlotte, NC and reluctantly tried a new sport, pit crewing. After falling in love with hitting lug nuts, I figured out how to give this new passion a go, which juggled much more in my life than I anticipated.

 

In this episode of Building A Badass, I explain how I discovered NASCAR and the demands of a pit crew, the most unexpected sport. How I almost missed my chance, but instead learned the value of trying new things... Yet again. But this time I made history.

 

Stay Relentless,

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Shrugged Collective w/ Doug Larson  — 106
01:02:39

To whom much is given, much is required. Or so they say. Doug Larson sees it a bit differently as he has been given much in the way of coaching and mentorship, so he has made it his mission to give as much, if not more, as he has received. Doug is the cofounder of Barbell Shrugged, one of the longest running podcasts in the fitness space and still going strong.

 

Doug has understood the value of coaching and mentorship since his adolescence, when his coach took him under his wing and introduced him to the world of strength and conditioning. He would go on to play football in college while building proficiency in mixed martial arts and jiu-jitsu. As his education flourished he followed his mentor to Memphis, Tennessee where he would attain his Masters in Movement Science and meet his eventual co-hosts and business partners Mike Bledsoe (@mike_bledsoe) and Chris Moore (@barbellbuddha). Together they would train together, run a gym, and start one of the most prolific fitness podcasts ever.

 

Join us this week as we dive deep into the journey of Doug's evolution from student, to teacher, to master. Find out why Doug has made it his mission to pass on as much knowledge, through as many mediums as possible (ebooks, seminars, podcasts, etc...), reciprocating all that he has been fortunate enough to receive. Doug truly is the embodiment of the abundance mentality and we can't wait to share his message with you this week on Feed Me Fuel Me!

 

Also, make sure to check out Doug's fresh new website - douglarsonfitness.com

Real Chalk  — When Preparation Meets Opportunity w/ Anders Varner  — 42
01:20:29

Do you want to do big things?! Do you want to create opportunities for yourself that get you closer to where you want to be? Even if you don’t know where you want to be EXACTLY.

 

Anders Varner, Host of Barbell Shrugged, and myself, explain our story of preparation. What exactly were we doing before all these great things happened?! What were the steps we took to get here? Why did these things happen to us? Why don’t they happen to other people? What should you be doing more of to create more opportunities for yourself?!

 

This episode is an “all the feels” kind of episode that will get you inspired to want to work hard today. Think of Anders and I like your morning cup of coffee, and come hang out with us on this week’s episode on carrying opportunity through massive amounts of preparation, NOT luck. This episode was filmed in the Mecca of podcasting, my couch in Orange County ;)

In this episode, Anders gives a talk about two important skills: Greatness and coaching. He goes into how these skills can be learned and developed, and how we can build programs and systems to help coaches develop greatness. During the talk, Anders covers 3 main areas: The pillars, vision casting, and mentorship, and he closes the talk with 3 actionable steps that you can apply immediately.

To learn more about greatness and coaching, go to the The Strong Coach.

Enjoy!

Building a Badass — Activating My Dreams Into Reality — 4
41:51

I was never a competitor, ever, or so I believed. “I just didn’t have it in me” because someone else told me so.

 

In this episode, I walk you through how I stopped listening and believing other peoples limitations of myself, and ventured into something I knew I wasn’t, a competitive athlete, a business owner, and a Level 1 CrossFit Seminar Trainer.

 

In this single year, I reached three lifetime dreams, not goals. Not because I was ambitious and knew it could happen, but because I stopped believing other peoples limitations of me, and started taking a chance to fail. 2010 was the year I decided to start believing in my dreams, even if I was the only one who did.

 

Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Morning Chalk Up w/ Justin Lofranco  — 105
01:00:23

Justin LoFranco has a beautiful mind when it comes to community relations. If his career on the campaign trail in a previous life is any indication, some would say he’s a master. However, as many before him discover, the world of politics is cut throat, and your job security is tied to the opinion of the masses. This means, there is no security at all. After burning the candle at both ends for the majority of his twenties, Justin’s passion for late night dinners, networking, and ultimately relying on others for his success, came to end as his delegate was not reelected.

 

Rather than move on and join another campaign, Justin moved home. He had been introduced to the culture and community over the years while assisting in the management of campaigns. Yet, he had not been exposed to a resource that was absolutely dialed in with world community of CrossFit. A resource that showcased, the good. The bad. The ugly. But more often than not, the amazing things going on in the global neighborhood that is CrossFit. It is an entity with its own vernacular that transcends culture, region, or dialect. CrossFit communities the world over have raised money for many different causes, from those for a member of a gym, to disaster relief in the aftermath of a hurricane. There are best practices and people out there innovating coaching and business. An entirely new industry has emerged as a result of this cultural boom. In his parent’s basement, Justin decided to take a grassroots approach to spotlighting all of these talking points in a DAILY newsletter. Thus “The Morning Chalk Up”  was born!

 

Where there is a will, there is a way, and Justin has tremendous will. He has paved the way, by giving up 2 years of his life to get the Morning Chalk Up off the ground and consolidating a WORLD’s-worth of content into a condensed format that further links CrossFitters across all boundaries. Need to know when/where the next big competition is? See the latest edition of The Morning Chalk Up. Want to see who is killing it in philanthropy? Open your email. Want to stay up to speed on what it takes to qualify for the Games? Look no further than your inbox.

 

Justin and his team, through his shear will to make sure that it grew legs and took off, have created something special and he shares it with the world literally EVERYDAY!! Subscribe to The Morning Chalk Up AFTER you listen to Justin’s journey in this week’s conversation, so you can gain perspective and truly appreciate what it took to become consistently amazing!

 

Enjoy!

 

– Jeff and Mycal
