E193: Brandon Steinke: Breathing For Performance
This week, Dr. Shallow is back with another Canadian guest, Brandon Steinke. Brandon is an Eleiko Strength Coach based out of Edmonton Alberta. He owns Seasoned Athletics Coaching, and co-owns Mission Strength. Brandon specializes in breathing mechanics, and he takes us on a deep dive into his realm of expertise. Brandon is one of ten Breathing Coaches in Canada, and today he clarifies the most common misconceptions about the most ubiquitous human thing, breathing. Brandon breaks down the biomechanics of breathing and explains why proper assessment is so imperative for success in lifting. He talks about how oxygen and carbon dioxide are processed during exercise, and how CO2 accumulation can be used to improve efficiency in performance. He discusses what healthy breathing mechanics are and the method he uses to score them. Other topics in this discussion include the biological process of lactic acid buildup and the best ways to buffer and train lactate thresholds, and how to use breathing to drive the parasympathetic state. This episode is an education on how to use the breath to obtain next-level training goals. Don’t miss it!

ASK BOOM-BOOM YOUR QUESTION HERE ---- Timestamps: 4:55 - Black Friday Sale 9:00 - Discussing next charity shirt 15:25 - Who’s your favorite person to learn from in business? 24:45 - I've been going hard for over a year; my "rest" days are going for a run, usually 10-15km. I hit 10000k steps nearly every day, and weight train 6-7x week. No injuries because I train hard, but also smart. I use full ROM, and also see improvements week to week, like load PRs, or more reps. Progression isn't foreign to me, however my volume per session and weekly training volume is very high when I compare it to RP's strength MRVs and volume landmarks. Typically my session will include 4-5 supersets, each 3-5 sets, with reps from 5-15. I feel so burnt out, but at this level I'm not sure how to even find a MEV, or MV. All the templates I read say to experiment on your own meso, however mine has been so high for so long, I'm scared to take volume that low. Do you think a desensitization phase would help? How do you handle anxiety from not being able to exercise? 35:05 - How to know when is the right time to start a cut (different per person) but minimum intake? 41:05 - How do you measure if a reverse diet is going appropriately? Do you have any specific ranges or percentages you consider acceptable? 45:00 - Full disclosure I work out a lot. Rest is hard for me. I’m lifting 4 days, doing an hour of LISS (walks) 2 days, a higher intensity random like interval type workout one day. I average 18,000 steps a day. I get like 6 hours of sleep, work full time as a lawyer mostly from home, have 2 kids (6 & 4) that are in school 4 days a week, my husband works nights so I am solo for all dinner/bedtime stuff every night. It's a lot. I have been tracking at maintenance for about a year and have been in a really good spot mentally/physically until the last 3-4 months or so. By anyone else’s estimate I probably look the same as I did when I felt my best but I can see and feel some changes. I have some dysmorphia issues. But for real, I’ve put on about 5-6 lbs, measurements have been up slightly. I can’t seem to get back on track. I think I’m burnt out & don’t know what I should do to sort of get myself motivated and back into it. Any advice? 52:17 - Most effective way to do client check ins. Video call? Email? How do you check over their food choices throughout the week? 56:05 - If someone spends roughly a year bulking, generally speaking, how long would a cut last? ----- Apply For Coaching: bit.ly/Coaching-App Get Your Free Copy of The Nutrition Hierarchy, HERE Learn How We Coach: Read This Case Study Article Top 4 Episodes: - Nutritional Periodization - Nutrition FAQ - Training FAQ - My Story ---- You can get access to ALL of our content in one place, now: www.tailoredcoachingmethod.com/links/ Check out all of our e-books by visiting www.tailoredcoachingmethod.com/products/ Tailored Coaching Method Coaching Info: www.tailoredcoachingmethod.com/online-coaching/ ---- Social Links: Blog – www.tailoredcoachingmethod.com Facebook - www.facebook.com/tailoredcoachingmethod Instagram -https://www.instagram.com/tailoredcoachingmethod/ YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/user/BoomBoomPerformance Email – info@tailoredcoachingmethod.com As Featured on: Huffington Post, Bodybuilding.com, The PTDC, Dr. John Rusin, Muscle For Life, HLHL, iN3, OPEX Fitness and More…
