Welcome to another episode in this series highlighting previous podcast episodes!
It’s been so much going back through old shows to select the most memorable moments, so I hope you are enjoying these throwback clips as well—if you want to send in any comments or request topics for an episode, email email@example.com.
In part five you will hear eye-opening quotes from past guests like Xero Shoes founder Steven Sashen about living a barefoot lifestyle, best-selling author and manifestation king John Assaraf, Andre Obradovic on nasal breathing and The Oxygen Advantage, and Dude Spellings, who gives great advice (always backed up by scientific reference) on general everyday health practices, like walking, hiking, taking a stroll after dinner, and cold plunges.
Over the years we have been constricted in shoes that actually weaken our feet. Minimalist shoes are getting very popular. [00:00]
Why do modern athletic shoes look the way they do? Runners get injured every year caused by their shoes. [03:51]
The way feet are supposed to work (bend, flex, move, and feel) doesn’t work naturally in today’s modern shoes. [09:11]
John Assaraf explains: Do you want to change? Be grateful for where you are and what you have now, but then head in a certain direction with positive self-talk. We have to understand how to manage the emotions during change. [14:39]
The skill of earning money is a skill you can learn. [26:14]
Andre Obradovic and Brad talk about intentional breathing which relates to minimizing your breathing during your athletic performance. Most people breath too much. [32:37]
When we are told to take a deep breath through the mouth when we are stressed, we are told this will increase oxygen delivery to the tissues. It is actually the opposite. [37:39]
There is more oxygen uptake when we breathe through our nose. [38:38]
Dude Spellings talks about the benefits walking, an activity that is super underrated. [41:33]
Dude talks about how to best sanitize your cold plunge. [45:29]
Acupuncture is not voodoo medicine. Dr. Jannine Krause talks about functional medicine. [47:23]
Squishy balls have a very important role for people to work on their dexterity. [51:20]
Parasympathetic breathing should come five minutes after your workout when you lie down and put your legs up onto a bench or chair. Just chill and get your cortisol pumping. [54:38]
