Episode Date
Memoirs of a Navy Seal with Travis Kennedy — Real Chalk #81
01:57:14

Travis Kennedy is a 13 year Navy SEAL veteran. After becoming a member of my gym, CHALK, just a few months, I’ve always had so many questions I wanted to ask. I mean, who hasn’t wanted to be a Navy SEAL at one point in their life? And when you meet one, I feel like you just want to ask them everything! So that’s what this show is about. 

 

It’s a little bit of everything from an internally super excited child version of myself, but also with a take away message of how to take that Navy SEAL mindset and incorporate it into your everyday life. If we all had just a little more of that mentality each day, so many people wouldn’t have to be searching Instagram for motivation daily. They would be their own source of motivation. They would be more confident, more assertive, more structured... And the list really goes on and on... But the show doesn’t just stop there, we also hit on some the scariest and some best times of his career as well as what gets him excited in civilian life.

 

 I think everyone is really going to benefit from this one! I’m super excited for everyone to listen to it!

Why Evolving (in fitness, and in life) Is Scary But Worth It, with Steph Gaudreau — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #20
01:07:04

This podcast is all about evolution: how scary, difficult, frustrating, and ultimately freeing empowering it can be to figure out how to let go of things that aren’t serving you anymore and allow yourself to grow, change, and move on. Whether in fitness, business, relationships, or life in general, the key to authenticity and happiness is being able to learn from your experiences, pick and choose what works for you, and sometimes, take a leap into the unknown. Today’s guest, nutritional therapy consultant, podcast host, author, and fitness and nutrition coach Steph Gaudreau talks about her own journey, including her recent significant rebranding and all the fear that comes with rebuilding after the painstaking process of building a brand and a following. Steph talks about shifting priorities, stepping out of a “scarcity mindset,” and how staying true to yourself, even when that truth changes, is the best way to live and build a business.  

 

Steph Gaudreau’s mission is to help women create bigger, bolder, fiercer lives — by building health from the inside out She’s a Nutritional Therapy Consultant, author, blogger, coach, podcaster, and the creator of the former Stupid Easy Paleo. Steph wrote the best-seller The Paleo Athlete: A Beginner’s Guide to Real Food for Performance in 2014, and her award-winning book, The Performance Paleo Cookbook: Recipes for Eating Better, Getting Stronger & Gaining the Competitive Edge. Her upcoming book The Core 4, due out in July 2019, shares her Core 4 pillars of health. Steph hosts her Harder to Kill Radio podcast, where she talks all things fitness, nutrition and mindset about how to build unbreakable humans. She’s also the creator of the Core 4 health program, and the Women’s Strength Summit. Steph’s an accomplished strength coach (USA Weightlifting Level 1) and is the creator of fitness programs like Made Strong, Basic Barbell, and Oly Lifting Basics. She coached Olympic weightlifting at CrossFit Fortius in San Diego for 3.5 years and holds numerous CrossFit certifications.

 

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 17  Ashleigh starts the podcast by talking about her own health and fitness journey and evolution  

  

17 –  27 Steph talks about what it’s like to have a busy online business, how she structures her day, and tips for how to stay focused and avoid distraction when working from home    

 

27 –43  Ashleigh and Steph talk about stepping out of fitness-related comfort zones, including switching from CrossFit to Brazilian jiu jitsu, and how her background in CrossFit and Olympic lifting helps inform her current movement and exercise

 

43 – 49 Talking about her rebrand from her popular Stupid Easy Paleo platform to her new eponymous brand, with less of a focus on a specific diet protocol and more on helping women with nutrition, fitness, and mindset: helping women find their voices and feel empowered to take up space in their lives and careers  

 

49 – 1:02 Learning about the pros and cons of labels and categories, whether it’s labeling your brand or your nutrition or your fitness approach; how it can be both helpful and limiting

 

1:02 – Discussing the evolution of her fitness and business and how she learned to worry less about making everyone happy and more about making herself happy, through supporting other women in their journeys. So often, women are expected to be “palatable” to everyone, says Steph: not too strong, not too outspoken, pleasing and cute and happy to fit in to the mold others set for them. But doing the hard work of staying true to ourselves, even when it’s hard, will reflect positively in our businesses, our relationships, and even our fitness.

No one cares about your excuses: learning from Kara Lazauskas, who has one lung and is stronger than you — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #19
01:44:43

Today’s episode is a deep dive into the life of Kara Lazauskas, a health and conditioning coach with a unique background rich in both athletics and adversity. Beginning at age three when she had her lung removed, continuing through NCAA level basketball and a number of serious ACL injuries, to a low point where Kara suffered from depression and a severe eating disorder. We talk about the struggle, growth and learning that came from finding health, balance, and purpose after hitting rock bottom, and how she is now able to help others through her coaching and research. We also chat about her time as a competitor on NBC’s Titan Games series, her work at Cal State Fullerton studying muscle fiber typing and protein signaling under Dr. Andy Galpin, her competitive MMA fighting experience, and more.

 

Born and raised in New Jersey, Kara Kilian Lazauskas grew up in a household where athletics and academics were the top priority. At the age of 3 she had her lung removed due to a tumor covering 75% of the left lung. She contests her love for human anatomy and physiology was born from that moment. With her body’s adaption and continuous push both mentally and physically, she was able to gain a scholarship to play at the NCAA level in basketball. However, 4 ACL reconstructions later in her right knee and no real basketball career left in sight, she was left wondering why me? That's where her purpose began.  The search for answers carried her into graduate school under Dr. Andy Galpin and Dr. Irene Tobias studying Muscle Fiber Typing and Protein Signaling at California State University-Fullerton. Now, as a coach, mentor, and masters of muscle physiology her years of criticism and experiences comes to serve her purpose, serving others. Kara was a competitor on NBC’s Titan Games, has competed in MMA, and now dedicates her time to researching and coaching.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

3 - 31   Intro to Kara, including having a lung removed when she was three years old, pursuing sports and fitness at a young age and finding success in weightlifting and basketball. We delve into her knee injuries and the subsequent issues (including severely disordered eating) that resulted from her attempt to cope with losing the ability to play the sport she loved

 

31 – 36  How the trauma gave her the emotional intelligence to succeed and help others; how hitting rock bottom helped her address the issue rather than ignore it

 

36 - 45  Advice for how people can address, support, or help someone in their life who is exhibiting symptoms of an eating disorder  

 

45 - 56  A discussion of her mental and physical recovery  

 

56 – 1:13 How Kara got into coaching and her lab work with Dr. Andy Galpin, earning a master’s degree in muscle physiology, studying muscle fiber typing and protein signaling in athletes; why more of this type of research has to include women (turns out there are interesting differences between men and women in areas like nutrient timing windows and performance)

 

1:13 – 1:15 Kara talks about her remote and online coaching as well as one-on-one training, working with a range of athletes  

 

1:15 – 1:28 I ask Kara how she got into competitive MMA fighting, and what that experience was like; why she continues to put herself in uncomfortable situations in order to learn and grow

How To Program for Success w/ Dustin Meyers— Real Chalk #79
48:55

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Mr. Myers has since become the Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Ohio Regional Training Center at Ohio State. Business partner with Cory Gregory (who I had on 2 weeks ago), the two own and operate The Old School Gym in Pataskala, Ohio. Coach Myers is known for working out with his students and incorporating more strength training than traditional wrestling coaches.

 

In addition to his many achievements as a coach, athlete, and business man — Mr. Myers also happens to be a family man and someone that many of us can relate to. He’s a solid role model for many and his approach to coaching and lifestyle is nothing short of motivating. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!

How Long Does it Take to Build Your Coaching Business? — The Bledsoe Show #137
01:13:16

In this episode Mike Bledeoe, Nick Maier and Kimerly Kesting discuss Coaching and Community.  

They dive into, The Strong Coach and the transformations they have had from the program. Accomplishing your life goals faster and in ways you didn’t see coming.  Also, gaining skill sets, language, and tools to create the life you want.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18  Nick’s growth on an organizational level and personal level vs. operating on survival.  Setting intentions, giving attention to those intentions but not worrying about how that will happen.

 

18 - 29   How to show up differently and as your true self. Following being in control of your life and creating what want. Deciding what you don’t want. What is your true success versus what the world makes you think is success.

 

29 - 42  Using coaches, therapy  or other 3rd party reflection partners and how to give yourself time to have that conversation in a safe place.  Learning to make commitments to share everything so your third party perspective can help.

 

42 - 50: Looking at the coaching industry as a whole, not just nutrition or training. Using food as a tool to build awareness.  Connecting with what your body is telling you so you can eat more intuitively. What’s your own personal diet?

 

50 + Finding your humility and getting past blind spots by taking feedback from others.  Getting your team and others to the level of trust so there is open communication and things are getting better.  Building out teams. Power of collaborations.

How a recovering perfectionist can find health and balance (and still be fit af) with Jill Coleman — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #18
01:40:24

Jill Coleman coaches fitness coaches on how to build their business, find their passion, and balance their own health and happiness too. Coming from a background of fitness competitions and modeling, she’s certainly not the first fitness pro who’s struggled with dysfunctional attitudes towards eating and exercise and self-acceptance, but she’s done a fantastic job of doing the hard work that it takes to get unstuck from a cycle of shame, self-blame, and overwork to a place where she can help others as well as take care of herself. In this interview, we deep dive into how we can be a contributing, authentic part of the health and fitness industry without becoming obsessive; her experiences from fitness competitions and yo-yo-dieting to finding her version of moderation; how she grew from a scarcity mindset to one based on balance; knowing the difference between ambition and obsession; and how to snap out of a rut, be it in business, life, or fitness.  

 

Jill Coleman’s journey in health and fitness began when she got her first job at a gym at 15 (for the free membership). Jill earned a B.S. in Exercise Science from Wake Forest University and went on to earn an M.S. in Human Nutrition at the University of Bridgeport. While she learned a lot during her years of exercise science and nutrition education, fitness competitions and modeling, and having her work featured in SELF magazine, SHAPE, Women’s Health magazine, and more, she also found herself struggling with food and exercise obsession. Through a lot of hard work and introspection, Jill was able to work on making balance, moderation, and health a priority over six pack abs, and launched her personal brand at JillFit.com in 2010, which has since evolved from a fitness competition prep service to a range of comprehensive online programs and resources for women who want to break the cycle of shame, unsustainable diet, and punishing exercise to create a life they love encompassing mindset, fitness, and business.

 

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

7 - 23  Introduction to Jill and her work coaching and teaching other fitness coaches; her thoughts on how you can be a leader in the fitness industry without being obsessive

  

23 – 33 Her experiences with fitness and bodybuilding competitions, both positive and negative

33 – 47 A discussion of a key moment in her life (the discovery of her husband’s affair)  and how Jill escaped what she called a “blame culture” and worked on healing through introspection and sharing  

 

47 – 59  A conversation about how to tell your own story: knowing how to market yourself as a coach or trainer by being aware of what you can offer and what people are looking for  

 

59 – 1:07  How she made her way out of a creative rut by writing a full length romance novel – which she doesn’t plan on publishing!  

 

1:07  – 1:19 Finding the balance between ambition, challenging yourself, working hard, and enjoying your life; the importance of goal setting

 

1:19 – 1:28  Talk about the biggest challenges of fitness coaching (spoiler alert, it’s expectation management) Getting people to just keep showing up to the process.  We are in the trust business, which takes time to earn.

 

1:28 How to be useful, authentic, and interesting on the internet for your business, and why popularity on social media doesn’t necessarily correlate to coaching success; you have to know how to use it effetively. Why your mindset and approach to challenge is more important than the challenge itself

Chatting with Tommy Hackenbruck — Real Chalk #78
47:39

Tommy Hackenbruck happened to be the owner of the first CrossFit gym I ever stepped foot in. At the time, I didn’t even know what the CrossFit Games were or who Tommy really was. He was always a super humble guy who never even made it a point to tell me that he got 2nd place at the CrossFit Games. He later became the Broken Skulk Ranch Champion, an owner of multiple gym locations (which was rare at the time), and worked out alone most of the time at a place called “Gym Jones” which has always been a famous training spot that requires an invitation to walk through the door. I wasn’t invited for a few years...

 

Anyway, while I was out in Columbus, Ohio I happened to walk by Tommy as he was getting ready for the “Legends” competition at the Rogue Invitational. I haven’t talked to him in years and wanted to catch up and see what he’s been up to. He had a few things to say about his career and business life. Things he’d do different and things that helped him succeed. It’s always good to hear anything from someone who’s been in the game this long. I hope to enjoy it!

Stress Less, Win More. Lessons From One of The World’s Best Ultra-Endurance Runners, Courtney Dauwalter — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #17
01:16:49

Ultra endurance runner Courtney Dauwalter is pretty chill for a person who can run more than 200 miles without stopping. She’s run plenty of 100 mile + races, often breaking and setting records, often beating the rest of the pack (men and women) by significant margins. Take the Moab 240 race in Utah last year, where she 238 miles in under 58 hours, crushing the male second-place finisher by more than ten hours. In addition to her seemingly superhuman feats of endurance and resilience, Courtney is equally well known for her relaxed, positive, and uncomplicated attitude towards competition, pain, and training. Whether you’re an endurance racer or not, we can all learn something about approaching our own struggles, challenges, and goals with a resilient, focused, and positive mindset like Courtney. Listen as we chat about her background in sports, some of her hardest races and craziest challenges, how she trains, how she eats, and how she deals with failure, and why the path to greatness means approaching challenge and pain as “fun problem solving.”  

 

Courtney Dauwalter is an American ultramarathon runner, who gained mainstream attention in 2016 when she won the Run Rabbit Run 100-miler in Colorado less than one minute off the course record and set the record on the Javelina Jundred 100K. In 2017, she set the record for the longest run in 24 hours, at 155.391 miles during the Riverbank One Day Classic. She also won the 2017 Run Rabbit Run during which she battled temporary blindness for the final 12 miles. In 2018, she ran 279.2 miles in what’s known as Big’s Backyard Ultra, a grueling race during which runners have to complete a 4.16667-mile loop each hour: the last person standing wins. By the third night of that race, only Dauwalter and Johan Steene remained. After going mile for mile with Steene for 67 hours, Dauwalter conceded. At that point, she and Steene had run 33 miles farther in the race than anyone had before. Also in 2018, she finished the Moab 240 race in Utah in 2 days, 9 hours, and 59 minutes, faster than any of the men or women in the pack and beating the second-place finisher by more than 10 hours. Courtney is equally as well known for her baggy running shorts, penchant for beer and candy, and positive, easygoing outlook in the face of near insurmountable challenges. Here’s a short YouTube documentary about Courtney and  article about her in the New York Times.

  

Minute Breakdown:

 

4 - 13   Introduction to Courtney and her most recent race, what her training and racing season looks like  

  

13 – 16  Her background in high school cross country and other sports, and what fuels her competitive streak and drive to push and compete, even when it’s only against herself. What kind of strategy does she employ to keep pushing boundaries, even when she’s winning by hours?  

16 –24  What does her pre-race week look like? What does her sleep look like? What time does she train, how does she train? Find out why she doesn’t listen to music on her crazy long training runs

 

24 – 42  A deep dive into her mindset around training and her notably relaxed attitude towards the details: why she isn’t putting a lot of thought into recovery, diet, or new technology   

 

42 – 52 How do ultra runners eat and fuel themselves during training and during actual races?  

 

52 – 59 How she thinks about mental resilience: how she talks about herself, how she deals with failures  

 

59 – 1:04 We talk about some of her scarier injuries and experiences during races, including falls and suffering corneal edema (temporary blindness) during a race – which she still finished

 

1: 04 – What upcoming races and goals is Courtney working on?

Together with Tyson Gay, he is the joint second fastest man ever over 100 m with a personal best of 9.69 seconds which he ran on 23 August 2012 with less favorable wind conditions than Gay's personal best from three years prior.

He holds the Jamaican national junior record for the 100 meters, and was formerly the youngest sprinter to have broken the 10-second barrier (at 19 years, 196 days).

From Coals to Competitor with Cory Gregory — Real Chalk #77
56:59

Cory Gregory is a real life Zoolander story. Starting as a coal miner, he eventually built a huge following and fitness business. He’s competed in almost every genre of fitness there is, including a powerlifting, bodybuilding, and Olympic lifting meet all in the SAME weekend. He’s been on multiple huge magazine covers (13 to be exact). He was one of the original owners in Musclepharm. And he now owns Max Effort Muscle, the Biz and Biceps Podcast, and Old School Gym.

 

This guy was my most highly requested person to have on the show when traveling to Columbus, Ohio and he definitely did not disappoint. You’re going to love this one for sure.

Finding Your Authentic Self Through Physical Movement – What We Can Learn From Competitive CrossFitter, Surf instructor, Firefighter, and Coach Vanessa Lambert — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #16
01:30:19

Ashleigh chats with Vanessa Lambert, co-founder of Bee the Wellness, a health coaching and luxury healthy adventure retreat business, about her varied and eclectic background in fitness ranging from gymnastics to competitive surfing to CrossFit to firefighting and beyond, about the ways in which challenging yourself through physical activity can teach you who you really are.  

 

A health and fitness enthusiast since childhood, Vanessa came into coaching quite accidentally. As a promising young gymnast, her coach asked if she would instruct the introductory classes at her gym. Her natural love of the movement was only deepened by sharing it with others. No stranger to competitive sport, Vanessa played soccer, basketball, swam competitively, and was also co-captain of her cheerleading squad. In her early 20’s she moved to Maui to improve her surfing practice and became one of the first female surf instructors in the Hawaiian islands. She and Adam were also an integral part of the CrossFit NorCal team that took third place in the affiliate games in 2009. It would be her years at NorCal Strength and Conditioning training under the tutelage of Robb Wolf and his wife Nicki, and later working with Mark Sisson, that her ancestral wellness practice would deepen. Working closely with Mark at the Primal Blueprint headquarters over four years, Vanessa developed their personal coaching program and luxury retreat vacations. This experience is what motivated her to co-create the Bee The Wellness program with her husband Adam, whom she met through their mutual work as firefighters. These days, her focus is to help as many people as possible become the very best version of themselves.

 

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

2 - 15  Introduction to Vanessa and how sports helped her build confidence from a very young age  

  

15 – 19  The sports Vanessa and Ashleigh think are ideal for young people in terms of body awareness, strength, and confidence   

19 – 35 Vanessa’s experience learning about surfing and moving to Hawaii to compete in surfing and become one of the first female surf instructors in Maui at the time  

 

35 – 45  Why she decided to get into firefighting, and the challenges of the job as a 5’3, 125 pound woman; why the job is incredibly hard on your health and how to work around its challenges

 

45 – 55  How she and her husband got into CrossFit in the very early days, and what competing in the sport taught her about strength, capability, and goal-setting  

 

55 – 1:07 How Vanessa and Adam developed their coaching business and luxury retreats company; a discussion of some of the coaching programs they offer, including her Authentic Self program  

 

1:07 – 1:16 How she combines spirituality and mental health with physical health

 

1:16 – 1:19: Why “adventurous” retreats are so revelatory, especially for women who may be traveling or going on an adventure alone for the first time

 

1:19 -  What she’s learned about the human condition and physical and mental strength through her work coaching and going on adventures for a living

With a competitive gymnastics background, Kari Pearce began training at New York Health and Racquet club where she met a powerlifting coach and did her first competition. While she was preparing for my competition, the owner of CrossFit SPOT contacted her about coaching CrossFit because he knew of her gymnastics and training background. Kari knew this would be the perfect opportunity for her to start.

 

After winning the powerlifting competition, Pearce decided it was time to change direction. The other sports were great but she loved that there are so many different movements and always something to work on with CrossFit. Once Pearce started, she realized her background was perfect and she began to excel quickly.

 

Six months after beginning CrossFit training, Pearce found herself competing at the EastRegional. In her first year she was able to qualify for the CrossFit Games and finish 21st placein the world. After this, Pearce knew she had found her sport and loves everyday of it!

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Kenny Santucci discuss what it takes to win the CrossFit Games, how Kari Pearce used her gymnastics background to excel at CrossFit and what CrossFit athletes are missing when it comes to core training. Kari Pearce is coming off winning 3 CrossFit Open workouts and is on her way to the CrossFit Games for the fourth time.

A super informative conversation on dieting and macros with the owners of RP Strength. These guys are pretty world renowned in the online diet and training space. In fact, it would be a little weird if this is the first time you’re hearing their names.

 

This conversation hits just about everything that’s important when choosing a plan for you and all the things that make a plan work. Not to mention my favorite part... How important is the timing of macros versus just getting them all in by the end of the day?

 

Let’s find out and listen to this weeks episode :)

A “Strong First” Approach To Improving Performance And Combatting Autoimmune Disease with Dr. Emily Kiberd- Muscle Maven Radio Episode #15
01:36:17

This week Ashleigh talks with Dr. Emily Kiberd, a chiropractic physician and founder of the Urban Wellness Clinic in New York City, about what a strength-focused, holistic chiropractor actually does and does not do; what is hypermobility, why it can be problematic for stability and athletic performance, and how to address it; and how strength training can improve mobility and stability, and (surprisingly) address issues like autoimmune disease, a complex and varied health challenge that disproportionally effects women.

 

Dr. Kiberd is a chiropractic physician and founder of the Urban Wellness Clinic in New York City; the clinic’s mission is to optimize every patient’s health, so they live—sprint, lift, race, or stand—without pain. Dr. Kiberd earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Western States, in Portland, Oregon. She is a 200-hour-certified yoga instructor, and develops wellness programs for corporate clients, including Fortress Investment Group, Corbin Capital, Sundance Channel, and Fortune 500 companies. Dr. Kiberd also helps yoga instructors deepen their understanding of anatomy and biomechanics through in-depth workshops. Her expertise spans several therapeutic fields: biomechanics, yoga, and functional movement patterns.  

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

3 - 18 Introduction to chiropractic physician Dr. Emily Kiberd and what she offers at her Manhattan-based Urban Wellness Clinic; why clamshells aren’t always the answer with PT and hip mobility; addressing the myth that chiropractors only deal with the spine; and when is chiropractic medicineis NOT the answer

Neuromuscular Re-Education — The Bledsoe Show #134
01:06:42

Garrett is the founder of NeuFit in Austin, Texas. But that didn't happen overnight.   

Growing up as a hockey player, he struggled with his own injuries and lack of natural athleticism. These experiences inspired him to do thousands of hours of research and try almost everything that's out there.   

During that process, he met disappointment after disappointment, and became extremely frustrated.  

In parallel, he ended up studying to become an Engineer. Seeing nothing but dead ends in the physical therapy realm, Engineering was going to be his "day job" and allow him to build real solutions to problems.  

Fortunately, in his last year of college ice hockey (he ended up making some progress and become a practice-squad player), he had a chance encounter with a Functional Neurologist. The new approach he encountered ended up being a big "Eureka!" moment, and he healed torn ligaments on their own - without surgery!  

He finally learned about the power of the Nervous System, and found a way to turn his passion for the human body into a way to make a difference in people's lives.     

After some formal apprenticeship and more self-study, he opened his first facility in 2009. It was a very humble beginning: just Garrett and some equipment in 250 square feet.    

He continued to evolve, studying with various mentors, performing lots of experimentation, and even entering a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience. Fortunately, his work had a big impact in people's lives and started to catch on in the community.     

Now, the business has grown to one of the premier fitness and rehabilitation facilities in the country. On any given day, you will likely see some professional and Olympic athletes, along with executives and homemakers, all working to improve their health and fitness. In addition, dozens of other facilities around the country have adopted the NeuFit technology and approach.     

During that time, Garrett also patented and launched a new electrical stimulation device, the NEUBIE. It is a very powerful tool that allows NeuFit practitioners to accelerate their clients progress in fitness and injury recovery. The NEUBIE has now helped people of all ages and in almost all situations, helping them get out of pain, improve performance, sometimes avoid surgeries and get out of wheelchairs, and live life at a higher level.      

He maintains a limited practice schedule in Austin, and spends more time teaching other practitioners and presenting his work around the country.

Garrett breaks down the benefits of the Neufit sessions and how it stimulates the body while training.  Discussions on how Neufit tapps into nervous system in a different way . Teaching you how to activate different muscles. Instilling new patterns for engaging muscles and benefit than more traditional methods and technologies.  Neuromuscular rééducation.

 

Minute Breakdown:

0 - 18  Discovering where the biggest problems are in the body and correcting those. What was the first injury that started a domino effect to cause other injuries and pain? How to understand and fix that.  The importance of how we respond to injuries is just as important as fixing injuries themselves.

 

18 - 29  Breaking patterns to help with injuries and prevent them.  The importance of flexibility and lengthening muscles. How the body tightens up to avoid injury. Protective reactions and why they are good but also counterproductive for healing and movement.

 

29 - 42  How one treatment helped a man's back feel better over the last year than the last 15 years.  Empowering people to know you can improve an you don’t need to rely on drugs or people. You can do it now.

 

42 - 50: Garret  touches on his journey from inventor, scientist, to running a business and wearing different hats. How Neufit has changed so many lives and the growth it has seen.  

 

50 +  The progress people have made from a rehab perspective.  The neurological approval to Neufit and how this has helped people with spinal injuries, brain injuries.  How people have walked out of wheelchairs from these sessions. What electrical body scans do.

Brandon Schrom- Sport Scientist for Team USA, Hemophiliac, and Aspiring Gym Owner — Real Chalk #75
48:52

Brandon contacted me a few weeks ago in regards to opening a gym. I figured instead of writing him a long message, I would just go down and see him at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista and record it. Not only was it an amazing experience to be around all these amazing athletes, but I got to hear a lot more of Brandon’s story and understand why he’s where he’s at and why he would want to open a gym in the first place. He’s overcome a ton adversity, he’s a brilliant guy, and literally everything we talk about has so much value to anyone looking to open their own business or even train athletes in general.

Foxy, Fit, and Functional – You Can Have It All with Marcus Filly’s Functional Bodybuilding Approach — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #14
01:13:35

Marcus Filly grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and had a collegiate career in soccer at the University of California, Berkeley. There he earned his degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis in Nutrition and Physiology. After Berkeley he complete a year of graduate work at the Ohio State University School of Medicine. His interest in both athletics and human health and performance eventually led him to CrossFit in 2007. He has gone on to compete at the CrossFit Games 6 times, three times as an individual (2016 12th fittest) and three times as a team member (2012 6th fittest team). Marcus has been a health and fitness coach for ten years since leaving medical school in 2009. He was formerly a CrossFit facility owner for five years, has completed all five of the OPEX CCP courses, and has coached clients remotely from all over the world. Marcus founded Revival Strength, based in San Rafael, California, to help clients from diverse fitness backgrounds fall in love with their training. Revival Strength also offers remote and online group training programs.

 

What better way to work on looking, feeling, and performing better than to learn from someone who’s had a lot of success doing it. Elite CrossFit athlete, gym owner, and trainer Marcus Filly talk to us about the evolution of his own approach to training, mindset and coaching as he went from his twenties to thirties, and his shift in approach from maximum intensity competitive CrossFit to longevity, recovery, and functional training, while still maintaining a high level of performance (and beach bod muscles). We talk about the growth of functional bodybuilding, his personalized approach to coaching, how he works, trains, and eats, and how to shift your mindset: stop comparing your current self to your former self, and instead embrace new challenges, goals, and training paradigms.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 19 What is functional bodybuilding? We dive straight into a meathead discussion on injury prevention, hybrid training, and how to manage our desire for intensity and tendency for overtraining. How can high performing and recreational athletes alike still chase goals, challenge themselves, and look good in different phases of their life?  

  

19 – 29 How to remove the ego from training; why pain is a powerful motivator; why comparison rarely has the positive outcomes you hope it will; and how exploring new training methodologies can improve your fitness as you get older  

29 – 33 Talking about his experience training under James Fitzgerald and taking all 5 of the OPEX CCP courses and how this informs his training and coaching

 

33 – 38 Why the key, as a trainer, is to listen and truly understand what clients want; being able to support both elite athletes and the majority of people who just want to look and feel better without simply pushing your own personal approach

 

38 –  52 What’s a day in Marcus’ life like? How does he balance work and health, and how does he turn his challenges—in life and business—into learning opportunities  

 

52 – We chat about nutrition and his personal approach, including some testing he had recently that informed him that he shouldn’t be drinking coffee – Ashleigh offers an alternative

Division 3 To The Olympics to CEO: An Inspiring Underdog Story — Real Chalk #74
54:48

In this episode we touch Nick Symmonds story of running for a division 3 school that ultimately put him into the Olympics... Twice... When asking the coach of his top choice college (Oregon) if he could be part of the team — the coach reciprocated with a definitive “it’s never going to happen.”

 

Even with double Olympic glory and this amazing underdog story, Nick still became depressed and had a 1 year slump of finding himself that he describes as “needed to happen.” Nick talks about how he’s found a new love for working out again, but this times it’s CrossFit and other outdoor activities.

 

With a New love for working out and a new outlook on life, Nick has more energy and spring in his step then ever to create something great. His company Rungum is actually more than great and is now sold in huge storefronts including Target and a few other huge superstores that are not allowed To be spoken of just yet ;)

 

Stories like this one are exactly why I do this podcast and I absolutely LOVE everything about this episode. Get inspired and give it a listen!

01:25:42

Ryan Frisinger helps individuals restore health and vitality by designing customized health programs that address genetic weaknesses, nutritional deficiencies, emotional traumas, and performance issues. By transforming advanced multidisciplinary research into potent programs, Ryan provides each individual with an operator’s manual for their unique body. His client base includes professional athletes, type-A high performers, autistic children, and individuals with autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders and other chronic illnesses. Ryan’s programs offer solutions for the world’s most difficult health problems and help people transform their health and performance.

 

Specialties: Methylation cycle analysis, nutrigenomics, multifactorial disease, mitochondrial disorders, chronic illness, ancestral diets, trauma therapy, intermittent fasting, plant medicine, interdisciplinary research, n=1 experiments.

Ryan’s academic background spans many disciplines, including biochemistry, genetics, botany, ecology, finance, literature, alternative medicine and athletic performance training. He holds an MA in creative writing and cultural studies and conducted PhD research in epigenetics, synthetic biology, comparative literature, landscape architecture and ethnobotany.

 

In this episode, Ryan Frisinger talks how cognition and emotional states impacts physical well being and performance.  Longevity, density, and why supplements aren’t as helpful as you think. Plus mind therapy.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18  How mitochondrial products can be inflammatory to some.  When restricting your eating during light, getting sun, getting your enzymes can be better for you than taking supplements.  Inflammatory damage and how you can avoid it. Supplement damage to the body. What are energy molecules and what are the ten things that contribute to it (which aren’t found in bottles on shelves at supplement stores).

 

18 - 29  Long term effects for athletes.  Substituting emotional health for physical performance.  How emotional and spiritual work can be effortless and helps your ability to be an athlete. Ryan’s spiral out of health that he couldn’t recover from since his body was so stressed.  Asking for help, being vulnerable and asking others for help which lead to his journey of self love and feeling worthy.

 

29 - 42 How we are removing ourselves from the planet unknowing, and how we outsourced our digestion.  The genes that survive changes in the environment.

 

42 - 50: Vaccinations discussions  and what you need to know about vaccines and which technology or genetic testing you should take before vaccinating.  If your immune system is robust enough viruses will leave your body without certain vaccines and how to do ths.

 

50 + Taking toxicity out of your life by doing the simple things like taking care of your teeth.  5 G and Ryan's concern with cancer skyrocketing. Blocking EMF. Why we are the grand experiment of surviving toxins.  Only drinking water after the sun is down and what this does to our health. Stop over training.

Optimal pelvic health for improved mobility, strength, digestion, and SEX — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #13
01:10:26

Tamra Wroblesky, PT, DPT is a pelvic physical therapist and co-founder of Inner Dynamics pelvic health and orthopedic clinic. She is a graduate of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. Tamra is an avid mountaineer, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro, Pico de Orizaba, and Mount Rainier. She ran the Ocean Drive Marathon, and frequents the gym for weightlifting. As a former collegiate athlete with an active lifestyle, Dr. Wroblesky has special interests in treating the female athlete, with an emphasis on preventative protocols to limit injury. She is a USAW certified Sport Performance Coach and works closely with several weightlifters, including Katie Montague who took home 6 gold medals when Tamra accompanied her to University Nationals in spring 2017. She also works closely with Crossfit boxes and USA Weightlifting to give her "Pelvic Health for Performance" lecture and her “Supercharge your Pelvis” article can be found here on USA Weightlifting’s website. Dr. Wroblesky became interested in pelvic health physical therapy after her own medical obstacles dealing with severe pelvic and hip pain over six years. She has had several surgeries, including two hip labral tear repairs, allowing her to be mindful of the patient experience.

 

This episode is all about pelvic health, and how proper pelvic function can have an impact on chronic pain, sexual function, mobility and physical performance, digestion and bowel function, and much more. Ashleigh talks with pelvic health specialist Dr. Tamra Wroblesky about the most common issues she helps her clients with, including incontinence, prolapse, and chronic pain; how to know when you should see a pelvic specialist rather than another doctor or specialist; things you can address personally before medical intervention to optimize your pelvic health; how to educate yourself about options when faced with possible surgeries; and what exactly is a bowel massage? All that and much more in this week’s episode of Muscle Maven Radio.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

3 - 12 An introduction to Tamra and what a pelvic physical therapist does; the issues she deals with the most for men and women including chronic pain, incontinence, prolapse, sexual dysfunction and digestive issues; and how she came into the profession after her own issues as an athlete with injuries, unnecessary surgeries, and painful sex

  

12 – 23 What signs or symptoms or things you should be aware of that you might want to consider seeing a pelvic specialist for including issues around sexual function and bowel movements: a lot of information about what “a normal” pee and poop schedule should look and feel like!  

23 – 30 why women need to be extra careful managing pressure because of our physiology; talking about peeing during exercise, leaking while lifting, and why we should take it more seriously—and why kegels aren’t always the answer   

 

30 – 36 walking through the process of seeing a pelvic health specialist; how they gather information and identify and address the issues    

 

36 – 48  How proper breathing mechanics and recovery relate to pelvic health and physical performance

 

48 – 57 Talking about the complications of hip and labral surgeries, how to do the right work and PT for your joints both before and after surgeries –how important it is to be consistent and patient, how to know when surgery is necessary, who to talk to and see before taking that step  

 

57: Five Key elements of bowel health. Also…what’s a poop massage?

Why Branding And Vibes Are Everything With Games Podium Finisher, Gym Owner, And Clothing Brand Entrepreneur Justin Ahrens — Real Chalk #73
01:17:03

In this week's episode I visit my friend Justin Ahrens (@justin.ahers) in Eugene Oregon and chat about his new gym and clothing brand that have been doing quite well in a short period of time. We discuss a lot about how he runs his gym, why branding is important, and how the vibe is everything. Did I mention that Justin just happens to be a CrossFit Games podium finisher for the team division? And he’s been in the game for just as long as I have. Side note... In college he was a competitive golfer. Weird huh?

 

Anyway, this is a great easy listen that reiterates how important the “little things” are in business and life. Hope you enjoy it and follow Justin and his new clothing brand called Treeline.

John Cena: The One Ton Challenge - The Greatest Weightlifting Challenge of Your Life — Barbell Shrugged #389
01:07:54

Looking for a fun event for strong people? Look no farther. The One Ton Challenge is the most fun weightlifting competition you will ever complete. It tests your lifelong pursuit of strength and leaves out the unnecessary formalities...and cardio.

 

The One Ton Club — A club at Cena’s gym of people who can lift a total of one ton or 2,000 lb. in 48 hours doing 6 lifts: squat, clean, jerk, snatch, deadlift and bench. Anders Varners made it to the one ton club! Cena created the One Ton Club as a way to make training more fun by gamifying it. If you made the One Ton Club, you get a special shirt, and your name will be on the door or wall.

 

Set up the BBQ, get your friends, turn up the music, and use The One Ton Challenge as your motivation to pursue strength!

 

There’s no need to qualify. You don’t have to be in the top 1% to participate.

 

Strong people don’t run from a challenge, they attack it head on. The purpose is not achieving a certain number. The purpose is to get better. With a goal specific program designed to build strength and perfect technique, you will get better.

 

The One Ton Challenge Starter Kit is your step-by-step guide to testing your lifelong pursuit of strength.

 

To ensure you get results, we have developed The One Ton Training Program with the most successful strength coach in the country, Travis Mash. This program is broken down into six, eight week training blocks. Each training block builds full body strength in the major weightlifting (snatch, clean, jerk) and powerlifting lifts (squat, bench, deadlift) with a focus on a specific lift that you will have to master in order to reach your goal of One Ton or 1500 for women.

 

Coach Travis Mash is no stranger to strength. He is 46 years old and still front squats over 500 pounds.  He had more athletes compete in the Weightlifting World Championships than any other coach in America in 2018.  He has many freakishly strong athletes include Hunter Elam, Nathan Damron and Morgan McCullough.

 

The One Ton Challenge Training Program is a 4-6 day/week program that provides strength training, technique drills, and movement specific accessory work to build full body strength, while mastering each lift to smash through the 2,000 pound goal using just 6 lifts (again… snatch, clean, jerk, squat, bench, deadlift).

 

Are your strong enough to be in the One Ton Club?

 

Are you ready to take on the One Ton Challenge?

 

Get ready.

-Anders and Doug

Soltara with Daniel Cleland and Melissa Stangl — The Bledsoe Show #131
01:20:22

Daniel Cleland - founding partner and CEO of Soltara Healing Center. @danielccleland is a passionate social entrepreneur, traveler, and explorer from the small rural community of Walkerton, Ontario, Canada. Since packing his life into a backpack in 2006, Daniel has sought to experience the less traveled trails of Latin America and raw, unconventional experiences until he ultimately found his passion in social entrepreneurship - business that makes a positive impact in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In 2011, while completing a Master’s of Intercultural and International Communication, Daniel founded a small tour company operating in Latin America which proudly became one of the highest rated plant medicine centers until he sold it in 2017. His personal and professional experiences with the medicine awakened his passion for unlocking human potential to create positive changes in the world which led him to Costa Rica, where he would ultimately find his home and build Soltara Healing Center to be what it is today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Creating a safe and authentic Shipibo healing center, based in a beautiful beachfront paradise was a dream that became reality and through his full-time dedication to the project, he was able to complete Soltara within one year after finding the beachside property. He believes that the most motivating and important aspects of life are helping people, solving challenging problems, and having truly amazing relationships with close friends. Like Melissa, Dan’s reach in the plant medicine world has stretched far.

Daniel has produced two documentaries called Drinking The Jungle (www.drinkingthejungle.com) and The Plant Teacher (www.theplantteacher.com). He is also the author of Pulse of the Jungle:  Ayahuasca, Adventures and Social Enterprise in the Amazon (www.pulse of the jungle.com)

 

Melissa Stangl holds a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, USA. After several years conducting brain and lung cancer research and gaining managerial experience across a wide range of businesses, her interests turned toward the healing power of plant medicines and psychedelics, and their influence on the mind-body connection. She has since managed operations and coordinated various social projects as Director of Business Development for a top-rated ayahuasca retreat center in the Peruvian Amazon. She is currently the Founding Partner and Chief Operating Officer at Soltara Healing Center, a Shipibo-led plant medicine healing center in Costa Rica, with a strong focus on integration support, indigenous tradition, and creating a community that empowers each member to be their own healer. She has also had the opportunity to deepen her work with plant medicines through several master plant dietas. In an effort to dive more fully into the plant medicine movement and recent renaissance of psychedelic science, she is also currently writing a book called Roots of Consciousness, which has won the MAPS-sponsored psychedelic literature contest through Publishizer.

 

In this episode,  Melissa and Daniel dive into developing intuition with your body. How to tap into your intuition around nutrition and movement.   Daniel and Melissa talk about what the Soltera Healing Center is and why they started this center.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

0 - 18 Daniel’s experience with depression, self destruction and his fall off a rock.  After 5 weeks in the hospital he decided to change his life and what was happening in his life from his mental state and internal circumstances.  What he did to change his life and those internal circumstances.

 

18 –29  Melissa’s experience after college and changing her path away from corporate america which she hated.  The lost traditions of medicine and how Melissa and Daniel came to honor and respect the processes and the mystic and ancient healings out there.

 

29 - 42  Plant medicine for healthing and spiritual growth and used for finding your passion. Are millennials entitled or are they scrambling to find what really works.  How Dan and Melissa are working within a system of capitalism but operate it with a global awareness for a search for meaning. Making a positive impact.

 

42 – 50: Burning holes in arms as a healing.  Using science but also looking at things as a whole at the same time.  Including mind, body and spiritual health into healding. Solving emotional issues to help eating badly or having to change your looks. How emotional and psychological healing makes working out easier.

 

50 + Root cause of addictions. Society way of portraying diets.  If you feel good then you will look good not the other way around. Tuning into your body to fix these internal issues.  The amount of time it takes to get off sugar, processed food. The toxicity of alcohol and effects on your body. Outcomes being based on the decisions you make.  Unconditional love. Difficulties and trusting the process in healing.

Prioritizing Stability Before Strength, Injury Management, And Finding Clarity In Your Goals With Dr. Jordan Shallow — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #12Prioritizing Stability Before Strength, Injury Management, And Finding Clarity In Your Goals With Dr. Jo
01:26:45

Dr. Jordan Shallow (@the_muscle_doc) is a chiropractor, strength coach, and a competitive powerlifter who champions getting movement right, from the outset. Jordan's patients range from world-class athletes to weekend warriors. Understanding the needs and demands of each individual is the cornerstone on which his clinical practice is built. When he’s not working on his Pre-Script program, traveling the world teaching strength and movement seminars with Ben Pakulski, or hosting his own podcast RX’d Radio, he’s competing in powerlifting.

 

Ashleigh sits down with fellow Canadian beefcake Dr. Jordan Shallow, a chiropractor, strength coach, founder of Pre-Script, and competitive power lifter to talk about his new programs; traveling the world teaching muscle building and training with Ben Pakulski; his recent injuries and how it effects his training; and why it’s important to surround yourself with the right people.

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

2 - 16 What Jordan is up to, whether he gets more nervous presenting or competing, and what kind of impact he wants to have on the industry  

  

16 –32  What exactly is his Pre-Script program? Progressions of mobility, stability and strength and understanding load management as a means of injury prevention

32 - 40  How he gets better at his job by having people poke holes in his theories, and why it’s crucial to have the right people around you who will tell you the truth and offer constructive criticism

 

40 – 46  There’s more to training than volume and intensity; talking about adaptation, stability, and learning, and his work with Ben Pakulski teaching Muscle Camp seminars around the world

 

46 – 55 A discussion of the best methods and channels for communicating your message; how to make social media work for you

 

55 –  60 The importance of “clarity in vision but flexibility in process” when setting and working towards goals  

 

60 – 1:14:00 Jordan talks about his injuries and how he’s training for an upcoming powerlifting competition, the difference between injury prevention and injury risk management and how travel to other countries like Lebanon and Israel helps him gain perspective

Shoulder Pain, Performance, and the Difference Between Good and Great Coaches w/ Tony Gentilcore, Anders Varner, and Doug Larson — Barbell Shrugged #388
02:02:03

Tony Gentilcore (@tonygentilcore) is one of the co-founders of Cressey Sports Performance, which really should have been called "Cressilcore Sports Performance" because that sounds like an awesome castle where a wizard lives (and plays sports). He's no longer coaching there, but his legacy remains. Tony's Techno Tuesdays will live on forever.

 

When he’s not picking things up and putting them down himself, he trains people at his studio, CORE, located in Boston, MA. He also contributes to the top fitness magazines and websites around, and sets up a camera in his garage to record his lightsaber skills.

He lives in Boston. With his wife, Lisa, and son, Julian. And cat, Dagny.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged we talk about Tony’s background in fitness, writing for t-nation, how to train baseball players, off-setting pitching with training, taking the demands of the sport translating those into training, what makes and maintains a healthy shoulder, PRI, knowing your scope of practice,  the flow of Tony’s programs, quasi-isometrics, where there’s meat there is movement, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

- Anders and Doug

11-20: Writing for T-Nation, meeting the O.G.’s over the internet, and the importance of surrounding yourself with people with a good work ethic

21-30: The pioneers of strength and conditioning forums, leaving room in your life for growth, if you’re going to talk about the trenches you better have experience in them, and the importance of working your ass off

31-40: Finding sports coaches who are supportive of strength and conditioning, how Tony and Eric became “the baseball guys,” becoming “top of mind,” and finding your niche

41-50: How to train baseball players, off-setting pitching with training, taking the demands of the sport translating those into training, and what makes and maintains a healthy shoulder

The Terrifying Truth Of The “School Lunch” — Real Chalk #72
01:04:58

5 billion lunches are served annually through the National School Lunch Program.

 

In this podcast we touch on the quality of food that your kids are actually eating at school, the macros in the food, and the terrifying statistics that follow when digested.

 

Obesity rates have tripled since 1980. Something needs to be done. At the current rate, 40% of girls in elementary school right now will one day be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. About 3 out of every 4 students is either overweight or obese right now and they will retain that weight as they get older.

 

In addition, students who eat school lunch are more than 4 times likely to obtain significantly less information than their healthy lunch brining counterparts. They are less likely to want to do physical activity. And they downright just don’t have the same brain development as kids who are eating healthy.

 

I’m personally sickened by this. I’m hoping this podcast will help educate many and scare them just enough to do something at your next school meeting or force parents to help meal prep for their kids.

 

YOU are helping create your children’s future by the food you feed them everyday.

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.

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!

21-30: How to use your feet when benching, the process of a powerlifting meet, how to incorporate Halo Sport during competition, and why consistency is the difference maker

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.

He’s only been training specifically for CrossFit for 1 year, but believes he has all the tools to succeed.

The Bledsoe Show #128
01:06:13

Guy is a modern-day shaman and co-founder of Satori Prime. A spiritual truth-sayer whose warrior spirit merges ancient wisdom with modern practicality against the backdrop of everyday life. In the past, Guy has helped thousands of entrepreneurs in over 23 countries launch their businesses online. A marketing genius, the essence of his work has always been to coach people to profound breakthroughs at lightning speed.

Satori Prime’s message is deeply personal to Guy. Having spent 7+ years in a state of anger and depression, he opted to take his first Landmark Forum. It was there that he realized his ability to craft his own reality. That he had always had a choice in how felt and in how he viewed his external reality. Guy now teaches thousands of people around the world to claim that same power.

 

In the past, he was a head coach for the Self Expression Leadership Program at Landmark Education where he was personally responsible for coaching thousands of people. He’s graced the stages of New York, DC, Boston as well as internationally. He’s been seen in the Huffington Post, Less Doing, The Art of Charm, and 6 Figure Mentors among others. He currently lives in magnificent San Diego with his two cats, Simba and Ginji.

 

In this episode we talk about physical, mental and emotional alignment for optimal performance.

 

Enoy!

-Mike

 

Minute Breakdown:

 

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.

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

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

⚡️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

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.

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.

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.

The Art of Breath: How Controlling Your Breath Can Improve Your Health, Physical Performance, and Mental Function with Rob Wilson — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #6
01:13:05

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

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.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

⚡️0-10: The practice of making things unimportant, distracting ourselves from the reality of our lives, and re-evaluating what you’ve deemed as important

⚡️11-20: Be the example of what could be possible in this world, don’t exist in the system, build a new one next to it, and how cognitive dissonance is hijacking your life

⚡️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

⚡️71-80: How globalization is waking people up, why AJ thinks that time has collapsed, and the movie Inside Out

⚡️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

⚡️91-103: Kids give you more than you could ever give them, no vs. stop, and how everything already points back to what you have inside yourself

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:

6 – 29 A chat about competitive women’s bodybuilding: different categories, conditioning, competition, judging, and posing

 

29 - 42 – Koko’s personal journey with competition prep, diet, experience with contest prep drugs or “gear” like Anavar, Winstrol and others, including side effects

 

42 - 56 - Koko’s story about her picture going viral, and how she dealt with it being shared dozens of times and commented on by tens of thousands of people; a larger discussion about the psychology behind social media

 

56 – How we can develop a strong sense of self offline in an industry (and world) where we live so much of our lives on social media; and how to develop empathy for people on social media, even the ones leaving nasty comments!

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

Guido Trinidad (@guidotrinidad) is the owner and Founder of Peak 360 CrossFit. Guido began CrossFitting in 2008 and hasn’t stopped since. Along the way, he has earned himself a trip to the CrossFit Games, 6 South East Regional appearances, and a Peak family that he could not be more proud of.

 

Guido is a family man, owner and founder of Peak 360, and the creator of Wodapalooza. Guido helps teach people how to  enjoy the process of becoming a better you while not being too hard on yourself. He views training no as a class you take a couple of times a week, but instead as a place where people get to be active and have fun.

 

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, we talk about where Guido’s journey started, how he opened Peak 360 with just $3,000 in the bank, the creation of Wodapalooza, the keys to building culture, the secret to having jacked arms, where the sport of Crossfit is headed, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

"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

⚡️31-40: The basic primal movement patterns used to teach kids fitness and teaching kids how to interact with the world

⚡️ 41-50: How to approach the nutrition conversation with kids and why we need parents to stop the “diet” conversation

⚡️51-59: How to get into coaching kids, asking why you want to work with this population, and the PYCC program

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

Mathew Fraser (@mathewfras) is an American professional CrossFit Athlete. With a coined mantra of “Hard Work Pays Off” (HWPO), he has been a dominant force on the CrossFit Games stage since the beginning of his career defining a legacy in the sport.

In 2016, Fraser hit the competition floor and took 1st place, it was the first historic victory of his career, winning by the largest margin of victory in Games History. In 2017 and 2018 Fraser repeated not only his overall finish but each year has bested his own set record for winning by the larger margin of victory in Games History. In 2016 he led by 197 points, in 2017 he led by 216 points and in 2018 he led by 220 points. Fraser holds accolades in competitive sport before his time as reigning and defending Champ in CrossFit.

In 2008- 2009 he was a resident Athlete at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. With a return from major back surgery in 2011, he retired from his weightlifting career and has been a CrossFit athlete since 2012.

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!

-Ryan

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

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 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.

01:36:31

Dr. Theresa Larson (@drtheresalarson) has become one of the healthcare and fitness world’s most sought after experts on movement health. Dr. Larson earned her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Saint Augustine in San Diego, CA. A former Marine Corps Engineer Officer and Combat Veteran, Theresa also played professional softball in Italy as well as semi-professional softball in the United States, was an All- American Division I softball player at Villanova University, as well as a former Body-for-Life Champion. 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.

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

Ajit Nawalkha — The Strong Coach #12
41:04

Ajit Nawalkha came from humble beginnings. Born to a middle-income family in Jaipur, Ajit grew up in an extended family of 23 other people under one roof. Space and money were scarce, and so as a little boy he dreamt of abundance.

 

Ajit made a decision to plant himself where he could grow. From starting as a trainee in a non-profit, Ajit has since held various roles including CEO of Mindvalley, Co-founder of Mindvalley Teach, Co-founder of Global Grit Institute and Co-founder of EPIC Businesses. He's also an author of the bestselling book, The Book of Coaching. Ajit has poured his heart into his upcoming book Live Big.

 

In this episode we talk about what a good coach is, why coaches don’t have clients, the principles that make a great group, understanding your dialogue with sales, why the world needs more coaches, how the world is progressing, and much more.

 

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.

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?

10:00 🍩 Ryan’s childhood diet staples

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.

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!

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!!

Andrea Ager: Faith, Fitness, and Finding Your Passion — Real Chalk #55
01:23:22

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

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.

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

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.

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

7:45 Ryan is thinking about candy bars (If it isn’t in front of you, it can’t tempt you)

40:00 Smoke, drink, eat like sh*t—and live to be 100?!

42:00 Ryan explains the effects of stress scientifically

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

1:22:00 The wisdom of religion

1:25:00 Food is a business, and companies are putting Mercedes-Benz labels on beater-car products

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!

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.

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!
