#95 - Looking Back on the 2020 Games
1 hr 26 min

One of the most unique CrossFit Games in history is...history.  And speaking of history, both Mat Fraser and Tia Toomey made a lot of it this past weekend.  Sean and Tommy look back on their dominant performances and talk about if what Mat and Tia are doing is good for the sport.  Katrin Davidsdottir solidifies her legacy as one of the best ever, Sam Kwant is a ninja, Haley Adams is really tough and Justin Medeiros lived up to the hype.  Plus, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future of the sport.

Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training for Brain Optimization PH171
“When we think about exercise in general as sort of a hermetic stressor, it just makes sense to think about, if you’re going to do it at a higher intensity and have these repeated hormetic stressors, you’re going to get an overall greater response. It’s a lot of the same mechanisms that we see for exercise causing a lot of great brain health and cognitive benefits, but we’re just seeing it to a greater degree.”- Julie Foucher-Urcuyo, MD In this special edition of Pursuing Health Pearls, I'm joining Dr. Matt Dawson and Dr. Mike Mallin at the Wild Health Brain Optimization Summit for an interview-style discussion focused on how high intensity interval training (HIIT) can optimize brain health. The Brain Optimization Summit featured doctors, scientists, biohackers, and nootropics professionals discussing lifestyle habits and methods to improve mental performance, memory formation, concentration, and professional creativity. This was a really fun conference, and they’re planning to hold another similar conference on athletic optimization which I plan to participate in, so stay tuned. I’m also excited to share more with you about Matt and Mike when I interview them in next week's episode so stay tuned for that as well! In this episode we discuss: * The definition of high intensity interval training (HIIT) * How HIIT relates to brain health and why it's advocated to improve brain health * How HIIT can reduce risk of stroke and improve stroke recovery rates * The amount of HIIT required to receive health benefits * The mechanism behind getting brain health benefits from HIIT * High intensity exercise versus moderate intensity exercise * The impact of HIIT on dementia, depression, Parkinson's, and ADHD * How to minimize the risks of HIIT * How to safely introduce it to a sedentary individual * How much HIIT is too much? * The target heart rate for a sedentary ramp up * How to cycle HIIT into your weekly routine * Quick workout recommendations * Supplements to help with joint health * Thoughts on fasted HIIT * A Burpee Challenge! 5 rounds of:1 minute of burpees, 1 minute of rest You can follow Wild Health on their website, podcast, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.

The Intersection of Mental and Physical Health w/ Matt Hesse, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Travis Mash - Barbell Shrugged #524
The core mission of FitOps is to improve the physical and mental health of veterans by creating purpose and community through the power of fitness. We believe that fitness is transformative to every aspect of our lives, and that a community that encourages a mindset and lifestyle of physical, mental, and emotional health is the way to help veterans achieve greatness in life after they serve. We don’t believe that any service member starts from scratch professionally when they enter civilian life--in fact, quite the opposite. FitOps is specifically designed to build on the fitness and leadership experience that veterans gained during their time in the service. The result is Certified Veteran Fitness Operatives (CVFOs), who guide themselves, their clients, and their community down a path toward being their personal best in fitness and in life.
