Luke Tyburski - Chasing Extreme Endurance Goals To Learn About Life Balance
Host Brad Kearns welcomes former pro soccer player turned extreme endurance athlete turned mental training coach Luke Tyburski to talk about his remarkable journey in pursuit of the limits of human endurance performance and the profound ups and downs and life-altering lessons Luke has experienced along the way. After playing soccer at a high level in Australia and the USA, Luke plunged headlong into ultraendurance, with his first-ever running race the epic Marathon des Sables--a legendary six-day slog through the sandy Sahara Desert covering 155 miles over six days. Luke also ran 40 miles from Mt Everest base camp into Nepal despite an intestinal ailment that prevented him from eating or drinking anything for four days prior. He created his own 12-day "Ultimate Triathlon"," swimming the Gibraltar Strait (Spain to Morocco) and pedaling and running along the Mediterranean for 2,000 kilometers total. Check out the Amazon Prime documentary "The Ultimate Triathlon." Alas, these extreme efforts (and the grueling PR and logistics efforts behind the scenes) destroyed Luke's physical health and exacerbated his clinical depression. This forced him to reckon with his purpose and recalibrate on a journey of healing. Today Luke is a mental training coach for aspiring peak performances. He coaches and lectures about how to push through perceived barriers with the force of mind, while at the same time maintaining a commitment to leading a healthy, balanced life. His autobiography is called Chasing Extreme.

Joe Cohen - Genetic Testing To Optimize Health
Host Brad Kearns talks to Joe Cohen, the founder of SelfDecode, a genetic testing service that gives customers personalized health recommendations based on their genes. Great advancements have been made with genetic testing in recent years, and running your genetic profile once allows you to apply future research advancements to your unchanging genetic profile and learn further insights. Joe describes how genetic testing can help you make the best decisions for exercise, eating, mood stability, and sleeping habits. It's important to acknowledge that self optimization should always be centered on testing, evaluating, and retesting, but knowing what direction to head with a genetic road map can be extremely valuable. For example, athletes can learn valuable insights about the antioxidant needs, methylation abilities, and muscle fiber composition to help design a training plan that they will respond to successfully. For example, Brad mentions his DNAFit report that revealed a ratio of 54% strength/power to 46% endurance in his genotype, a revelatory insight that would have helped revise his triathlon training away from a pure endurance approach that most triathletes follow to something more suited to his genetics.

Host Brad Kearns welcomes Dr. Greg Kelly, a naturopathic doctor, and expert in nutrition and anti-aging. Dr. Greg is the founder of Neurohacker Collective. In this episode, you'll learn about some cutting-edge longevity research to target senescent cells and help repair them before they become cancerous. Supplements like the popular anti-inflammatory quercetin and mushroom extracts have been proven effective, as has daily time-restricted feeding and occasional longer fasting periods. Dr. Kelly also discusses how important circadian rhythm is to health and longevity, and some ideas for how to optimize the various hormonal and metabolic functions that are tied to circadian rhythm. Hint: Don't eat after 10 pm, because your stomach starts to produce high levels of acid to detoxify what is supposed to be an empty stomach. Regarding weight loss, Dr. Kelly provides a memorable insight about crash dieting, where the body reacts with a "body fat overshoot" aka "diet-induced lipolysis" to gain weight back quickly and often worse than where you started. Dr. Greg offers some great practical tips to spur fat loss the right way, such as increased daily movement and better sleep. Another cool tip is to track morning and evening body temperature, as Dr. Kelly notes that more variation in daily temperature is a sign of youthful functional age.

Ryan Baxter: Nose Breathing To Improve Oxygen Delivery And Reduce Workout Stress
Host Brad Kearns welcomes Primal Health Coach Ryan Baxter to the show to discuss the importance of intentional breathing as it relates to minimizing workout (and life) stress and optimizing fat burning. Brian discusses the important role breathing plays in whether we burn carbs or fat during aerobic workouts. Beyond the need to observe the “180 minus age” in heartbeats per minute, the efficiency of our delivery of oxygen to working muscles is also relevant. Ryan explains how improving our CO2 tolerance can improve oxygen delivery, making workouts less stressful and improving performance. The less CO2 you can tolerate the quicker you are going to want to exhale it from your body—that’s why we default to shallow, panting, inefficient breaths - not only during workouts but also at rest. This stimulates sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system function while nose breathing stimulates parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system function. The greater you can tolerate C02 the slower you will be able to exhale it. You’ll learn how to dabble in the popular practice of nose breathing both at rest and during workouts. Try the shiftadapt test (linked below) to see how well you tolerate CO2 now and track improvement over time. Links: Ryan's Instagram Ryan's Blog Shiftadapt Test
