Play • 1 hr

Today Mark is talking to Steven Kotler, prolific author and expert on the state of flow. Among his many books, he is the co-author of Stealing Fire and his most recent book is The Art of Impossible: A Peak Performance Primer, just released yesterday. He is also one of the co-founders of the Flow Genome Project and the founder of the Flow Research Collective.

Hear how:

Flow is the optimal state of consciousness—six core characteristics emerge for us to feel and perform our best

There is early-stage passion and late-stage passion—your passion and purpose are earned over time

The time of crisis is the time for you to double-down on your primary flow activity

Listen in for a better understanding of how you can unlock your flow and live in an optimal experience during these VUCA times.

Dan Vinson: Livin’ The Monkii Life
*Dan Vinson is the Founder of* *Monkii.co* ( https://monkii.co/ ) *, makers of unique, compact home fitness equipment that allow you to enjoy a full body workout.* He has also had quite the interesting journey as a young entrepreneur and lifelong athlete. He made an improbable progression at Georgetown University from walk-on lacrosse player to earning a starting spot and full scholarship. We talk about the unique mindset attributes he displayed as a youth to persevere and continue to excel. One interesting element of that story is how Dan got just a tiny glimpse of his potential with an excellent practice performance, but then took repeat poundings and rode the bench for a long time until he got his chance. You may be familiar with Alex Honnold’s historic ascent of YOsemite’s El Capitan, as portrayed in the movie Free Solo, but if you want to climb El Cap the “regular” way, did you realize that it can take days to get to the top? You have to haul tons of climbing ropes and gear, sleeping bags, food, water, and clothing, hoisting backpacks up rope lines and continually stopping to regroup and climb a new pitch. After a couple failed attempts, Dan’s successful ascent (taking 31 hours!) was only a part way point in the awesome physical challenge. He and his climbing partner got hypothermic at the top. Instead of camping out, they had to hike 10 miles back to Yosemite Valley in the middle of the night with no food or water. You’ll learn how Dan’s extreme passion for outdoors (check out his wilderness workout video ( https://youtu.be/vr9yPiLrr_8 ) from back in the day!) was the inspiration for creating Monkii, and how he leveraged the power of Kickstarter to quickly build Monkii into a home fitness powerhouse. Enjoy the episode, and if you enjoyed learning about Dan and Monkii and want to hear more from him, check out his podcast here ( https://monkii.podbean.com/ ). *TIMESTAMPS:* Brad’s guest has many adventure stories to tell covering fitness mentality and competitive intensity.  [01:14] Dan talks about how he was able to build his business quickly. [05:14] What is a stoic mat? It helps balance and stabilizes muscles. [09:05] Dan and his partner have invented many different types of equipment with nature in mind. [13:11] What will the future be in society’s approach to fitness overall? [18:56] If and when we do get back to the gym, the social aspect and support will be there. [19:56] The football winning streak at his high school worked because of the way the players trained. [22:41] Dan played lacrosse in high school and college. He kept in shape in the summer in the wilderness. [24:05] Dan is a good example of commitment the way he kept going to practice with hope of improving enough to make the team. [27:58] It is a challenge to leverage the skills you’ve developed in one arena and apply those to another endeavor [31:34] When you develop commitment as a skill as an athlete, you are a good candidate for any job. [36:46] Dan talks about his rim-to-rim-rim trip to the Grand Canyon and climbing El Capitan. [39:09] Dan describes the ordeal of his climbing El Capitan in Yosemite. [45:01] Can a novice climb El Capitan? [56:04] Repelling is much more dangerous. You cannot make a mistake. [59:54]  Is there a trend in the younger generations of how they plan their lifestyle?

Part 115 - Dr. Cate Shanahan & Tucker Goodrich on the True Cause of Disease and How We Know This
Today is a special show that I really enjoyed with 2 guests - Dr. Cate Shanahan and Tucker Goodrich. I had Tucker on years ago for episode 20 and he laid out the entire case against seed oils which was very compelling. Dr. Cate has been on twice already (more recently) and is a wealth of knowledge on many, many things, especially the dangers of seed oils and reinforcing the Sapien diet concepts. We cover how people get fat & sick all the way down to the mitochondrial level. We discuss the different players in this process including seed oils (or more specifically excess amounts of omega-6), refined grains, and sugar. We also do my favorite thing and look at all sides of the arguments. We use an article a seed oil supporter wrote as a tool to check in on the studies and claims cited. You won’t want to miss this one! It’s a long one, but we cover a lot, and there’s a bunch of great new info.

Join The Healthy Rebellion Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here Show Notes: News topic du jour: We Broke Phosphorous "Throughout most of human history, farmers raised crops and animals side by side, which allowed them to easily recycle manure as fertilizer. During the 20th century, however, agricultural specialization separated livestock operations and grain growers, often by distances too large to transport manure. This geographic rift effectively severed the last remaining strand of the human phosphorus cycle. And it led to a surplus of phosphorus in areas of intense animal agriculture, exacerbating pollution problems in places like the Chesapeake Bay, the waterways of Wisconsin’s dairy country, and Lake Erie. According to a recent study by Metson and others, 55 pounds of phosphorus are released into the environment for every pound of phosphorus consumed in U.S.-raised beef, more than half of which comes from manure. (For wheat, the ratio is roughly 2 to 1.)" 1. Fasting Blood Sugar & Tooth Enamel [17:35] Kara says: Hi Robb and Nicki, I have been enjoying the Q&A podcasts and you answered a question recently that is similar to mine. I am writing because I am still struggling. While all of my other readings are in a healthy range, my fasting reading is always in the low 100s. I have tried eating carbs at dinner, taking carbs out of dinner, and more recently extending my fasting window. But I can't get it to go down. My a1c has been creeping up in the past couple years as well. In the summer months, I train in the mornings and eat most of my carbs then. But when I am working (I work a school schedule), I train around 4 in the afternoon and have my carbs at dinner. I sometimes struggle with sleep and I was having a snack before bed. I stopped the snack due to this issue and I often wake hungry, but I don't eat to ensure I have a 12 hour fasting window. I am naturally up between 5/5:30 and I eat breakfast upon waking. When I am working, I have to eat this early, as I get up and leave for work. I have contemplated fasting in the mornings to extend the window longer, but I am truly very hungry when I wake. Some details about me: I am a 40 year old mother of two boys ages 11 and 9. I had gestational diabetes with both pregnancies. When your book Wired To Eat came out, I read it and immediately got a glucometer. I have been struggling with this fasting number for years. I am 5'6" and 130 pounds. While my job is pretty sedentary, I walk 12-18k steps per day and strength train 3-4 days per week. In my 20's, I had hypothalamic amenhorrhea due to under eating/ over exercising. My body has been very sensitive to stress ever since and I will lose my menstrual cycle very easily if I under eat or over exercise. (I tried to diet recently out of vanity and all it got me was acne and a messed up cycle.). All of the female hormone experts suggest a good serving of carbs at dinner for sleep and hormones. But I have been trying to figure out what is right for me. I eat 75-100 grams of carbs per day. Those 100 gram days are very active days. I have not gone fully Keto because I started having a lengthening of my cycle when I was dropping carbs lower than that. My next physical is in August and I will have more blood work done. But at this point, my doctor thinks I am a hypochondriac because I worry about this, yet I don't look the part. It is frustrating. If you have any other suggestions for lowering the fasting number, I would be so grateful. As a side, I heard you mention you had enamel loss from apple cider vinegar. Do you have any tips for preventing further loss or rebuilding enamel? I have experienced the same. Thank you for all you do. Your work has been so helpful to me and I am grateful that I can often refer to your writing when I have questions about my health. 2. Lp(a) and CVD Risk [23:14] Ben says: First time, long time! Love the show. It is my go to podcast for workouts (AthleanX) and clinical documentation time (I’m a physical therapist) I’m a 35 y/o male. 5’11” 185 lbs. Not sure on exact body comp, but I have a pretty solid dick root, so it’s good. CVD history of bicuspid aortic valve. The way I understand it, I’m staring at increased wear and calcification on that valve as I age. No changes on echocardiogram so far. Ive been eating paleo/primal/occasional keto for 3+ years now and have had great body comp changes abs generally feel pretty damn good. My lipids have been elevated and I opted for an apoB and Lp(a) assay to more accurately assess risk- ApoB - 111 mg/dL Lp(a) - 81 nmol/L Regular lipid panel TC - 251 HDL - 84 TG - 61 LDL - 155 My question(s) to you is, have you come across any Lp(a) lowering protocols? Also, any ideas on reducing general calcium build up over a lifetime? I appreciate all you do. Sacred Cow was awesome! 3. Cold Plunge [30:45] Hannah says: Last year I used my pool for cryotherapy (cold plunge). This time of year the temperature is 48-50 degrees F. I've been doing it on days I don't lift for five minutes. As I continue to recover and restore my hormones, is this a good practice or too stressful on the body? Would it be better to just stick with the suana or red light therapy? Any passive options I can do to induce a hormetic response on my off days from the gym without stressing my hormones too much? 4. Carnivore Muscle Soreness [36:01] Bill says: Hope this is the correct forum. My problem is extreme muscle soreness. A little background. I was diagnosed pre diabetic in October. Immediately started low carb primal blueprint, was doing well and learned of carnivore. Started carnivore the day after Thanksgiving. Since carnivore the day after a workout my muscle soreness is way above what it should be. I cut my workouts to about 25% of what I was doing prior to primal to anticipate for the lack of carbs. I'm a 51yo male about 210lbs 6'3" I consume about 200g protein a day and the same in fat. I mix a tsp and a half of salt in water during the day along with a quarter tsp of potassium chloride and about 700mg of magnesium. My question is about the excessive soreness. As an experiment I waited till my legs we're fine and did 10 air squats. The next day the soreness was at about the level of an intense leg day. Is this normal and I just need to wait longer or am I doing something wrong? 5. Link Between Sodium Intake and Calcium Excretion [40:23] Annie says: Hi Robb and Nicki Thank you so much for all the knowledge you provide to your listeners via your awesome Podcast! Wondering your thoughts on the link between sodium intake and calcium excretion. Knowing your thoughts on sodium and how important it is to maintain electrolyte balance, I was concerned when my endocrinologist recommended I decrease my sodium intake as it maybe contributing to Ca excretion in urine thus increasing risk for OP to my bones. I did a 24 hr urine calcium test and results indicated I was slightly higher than the normal range. I do have osteopenia due to early menopause, 38, and no hormone replacement therapy until 7 years later when I finally realized that my low estrogen needed to be addressed despite my MD telling me that wouldn't help and I would need to go on bone medication. No other health issues and blood sodium last time tested was 138 which is lower end of normal range (low end was 135 for the lab test I used). Also, blood pressure has always been on the low side (90s/60). No issues with light headedness etc. I eat a whole foods diet and was using Redmond's Real salt to taste. I have recently been trying to limit my fluid intake to no more than 80-96 ounces/day. I may have been unintentionally overhydrating in the past- not sure how much t…

#228 The Missing Ingredient in Healthy Food and Soil - Aivis Vegers
Welcome to the Siim Land Podcast my name is Siim Land. Today we talk with Aivis Vegers. Aivis works at a company called Black Stuff. Black Stuff is probably one of the most unique nutrient supplements in the world as it doesn’t give you specific vitamins or minerals but it is made of humic and fulvic acid. Natural food grows on soils rich in organic matter that enhance the nutrient density of the food. Unfortunately, soil erosion, pesticides and other modern agricultural practices are deteriorating that. Black Stuff fills the missing link by providing more fulvic and humic acid than any other food.

Email podcast@barbell-logic.com to submit a question for future podcasts! 0:00 Introduction 4:34 Testicle Pain After Lifting What may be happening--and what should someone do--if they're experiencing testicle pain after lifting? 10:33 SteadyMD Log up at steadymd.com/bloc 15:56 Mixed Grip: Switch Supinated Hand? Should someone--when deadlifting with mixed grip--alternate supinated hands or just stick with one. 18:06 Coaching Feedback & Form Checking A great coach must help with form and improving form, but that cannot be ALL the coach offers. There must be a balance, and, ultimately, you need to make a good connection with clients. What does the client need right now and long term? 21:16 Recommended Nutrition Equipment What do Matt and Niki use all the time to cook and meal prep: Instapot or pressure cooker: cook stews, chicken, sweet potatoes, rice sous vide: thaw quickly or cook meat to internal temperature vacuum sealer: portion & freeze meat good knife: game changer 2+ cutting boards: to cut and prepare veggies, herbs, meats cleaned out fridge: let you see what you intend to eat clear, stackable tupper ware: see what you're going to eat consider: non-stick frying pan, high quality cast iron skillet, high quality stainless steel cookware 29:18 Flexion During Heavy Deadlifts Is it concerning if some lumbar flexion occurs during heavy deadlifts? If it happens when it's REALLY heavy & the weight it occurs at continues to increase, it's not concerning. If, however, someone rounds then pulls at lighter weights, then, yes, the lifter needs to learn how to set & maintain lumbar extension. Rack pulls, RDLs, floating deadlifts, 5 part deadlifts can help. 35:09 Gym Shenanigans What's the silliest or stupidest things you've seen in a gym? A few things: curling in a smith machine, bouncing on a bosu ball, tying an iPod to a barbell. 37:33 Prioritizing Gym Equipment If you're on a limited budget and starting from scratch, what are the most important things to purchase? The most important thing is to get a barbell and weights. GET STARTED with one-on-one online coaching FOR FREE! Get your FIRST MONTH FREE on all strength and nutrition coaching plans.

Can familial hypercholesterolemia be managed without statins? | Masterjohn Q&A Files #206
Question: Can familial hypercholesterolemia be managed without statins? I think there's the general perspective that there's no point in having LDL-C be any higher than 50; therefore, since it doesn't matter, let's provide a sufficient margin of error where we're real confident that getting it down to 100 is great and so why not get it down to 50? If there is any extra protection we get it and we don't lose it. So my point of view would be, I would personally rather use a more conservative target of lowering down to 100 or so where the confidence is actually really high, because I'm not convinced by the lack of confidence that there's no neurological downside to pushing it twice as low as that. So that's my general perspective and if this were me, and it'll never be because I can't for the life of me get my total cholesterol above 160, but if it were me I'd be lowering my dose on that out of precaution on the other side.
