PMR #181: Brian MacKenzie Swims With Sharks—and Talks About His New Book, Unplugged
4 days ago
Today we welcome Brian Mackenzie, co-author, together with Dr. Andy Galpin, of a book called Unplugged: Evolve from Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness, Performance, & Consciousness. Brian is a world-renowned strength and conditioning expert and has worked with many high level winning CrossFit games athletes and Olympians. He cofounded XPT Life, a wellness conditioning and recovery program, with Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reese. For a while now, the idea of being “plugged in” has been considered pretty much exclusively positive, but it’s safe to say that our addiction to technology today has spiraled out of control, keeping many of us from living our own lives or listening to what our body is telling us. Brian’s book, Unplugged, provides a framework for using technology to meet your specific health and performance goals in a more mindful way, while also reconnecting with your own instincts and the world around you. In this episode, we learn more about Brian’s research into breathing and discuss technology addiction, diving with sharks, why technology is never going to replace your soul, and how to balance it back into our lives.
