Breather: Overtraining Symptoms Series - Evening Second Wind And Mood Disturbances

Welcome to the final episode in this series all about overtraining symptoms! We have already talked about symptoms like thirst, overheating, frequent urination, sodium/potassium imbalance, cortisol, digestion, menstruation, twitchy muscles, skin problems, sore throats, libido, cardiac symptoms, crash and burn patterns, insomnia, teeth grinding, and food cravings in previous shows, and in today's episode, we tackle the final symptoms of overtraining: mood disturbances and experiencing that “evening second wind.”  While experiencing a second wind in the evening may seem wonderful, it is actually indicative of a larger problem since cortisol really should be dwindling to a circadian rhythm low at this time. This is a great show to listen to if you want to learn more about cortisol and what happens when you abuse your body’s flight or fight response and the hormonal mechanisms behind it, as well as how to deal with these specific symptoms of overtraining and the difference between overreaching and overtraining.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Dr. Cate Shanahan: Dark Calories - The Health-Destructive Effects Of Vegetable Oils And How To Eradicate Them And Reclaim Your Health

It’s time to welcome back to the show for the third time, my good friend Dr. Cate Shanahan on the occasion of the publication of her latest, sensational book! This best-selling author is back at it again with Dark Calories—How Vegetable Oils Destroy Our Health and How We Can Get It Back. This stuff has a high shock value, starting out with the book description: did you know that consuming a large serving of french fries served in vegetable oil delivers the toxicity of smoking 24 cigarettes?  Get ready people, this is an illuminating and educational show that will take you through the shocking and disturbing story of why we turned away from natural fats and got into the world of polyunsaturated oils, the “sinister figure” and “flawed and manipulative” science behind this major cultural shift that occurred back in the 1950s that demonized saturated fat and convinced everyone to switch from butter to margarine. It is a shady, shocking story, and it is now time to take control of our health, especially as we navigate the modern food options and place central focus on what is now being strongly identified as the single most offensive agent we consume in our modern diet—what Dr. Shanahan calls the Hateful Eight (health-destructive oils like soybean, canola, corn, cottonseed, safflower, sunflower, grapeseed and rice bran oil).  In this show, you will learn why vegetable oils are so bad and what they do inside the body to hamper your ability to burn stored body fat—and this poses a big problem, because if you’re not good at fat burning, then you are going to get hungry and eat too much food, which leads to gaining more weight, getting sick, and other diet-related diseases of modern times that are tied to metabolic syndrome, like diabetes and cancer. The final third of the book is a solution and offers great tips from Dr. Cate about how to navigate through food choices when you're shopping (especially when you're dining out) and a message of hope and how we can take matters into our own hands. Because if we wait around for government policy or corporate interest to say, “Hey, guess what? We finally figured out this stuff is bad for you and we're not gonna sell it anymore!”, you're going to be waiting a long time. So, it’s time to take action right now, starting with listening very carefully to this show and going out and purchasing the book Dark Calories. Here we go with Dr. Cate Shanahan from her home in Florida. HATEFUL EIGHT:CornCanolaCotton seedSoySunflowerSafflowerRice BranGrapeseed TIMESTAMPS: Did you know that consuming a large serving of french fries cooked in vegetable oil delivers the toxicity of smoking 24 cigarettes?  [00:52] Dr. Cate has focused her research and writing on the dangers of vegetable oils in our diet. [03:21] Vegetable oils are very harmful in and so pervasive in the food supply. It causes oxidative stress which is at the root cause of every disease. [07:39] When they are making vegetable oils, it has been refined like they for crude oil, like what you use in your car. They are filled with toxins. [13:12] Oxidative stress is the basis of all disease.  This wasn’t really understood until the 1980s [18:21] Other than vegetable oils, how else are we screwing up our health? [24:33] Be careful where your donations to  research programs go. They are not looking at the causes of disease, but rather they are looking for new drugs. [31:33] Ansel Keys was a physiologist who worked with doctors & convinced the medical community about the causes of heart attacks.  The information that he put out was totally erroneous & the community bought it. [32:10] A lot of nutritional science from big institutions is not science, but is marketing. [36:51] Soy oil is more obesogenic than anything else being studied. [40:02] A highly regarded market like Whole Foods is supposed to be presenting healthy alternatives to other markets yet they have canola oil in their hot bar and in products on their shelves.  [44:32] The average American, who doesn't know that these oils are toxic is getting them whenever they eat out or eat at institutions like schools, hospitals, workplaces, etc. [47:48] The term vegetable oil came about to distinguish this oil from whale oil but it’s not made from carrots, tomatoes and celery. These oils come from seeds. [51:47] How do these oils cause obesity? Problematic body fat is body fat that has a chemical composition that your cells cannot use to generate energy. [55:11] The keto diet now doesn’t help people as much as it used to. [01:04:31] The keto diet isn’t the only diet you need to follow. [01:06:09] Vegetable oils make you insulin resistant. [01:08:24] When Cate dines out, how does she navigate the menus of the restaurants?

Welcome to the continuation of our series of breather shows on overtraining symptoms! It’s been a little while, and hopefully you haven’t been overtraining in the meanwhile since it’s time to jump into a few more short segments where we cover certain aspects of overtraining to help you get a greater understanding of them (and get better at preventing or at least managing them early on instead of plunging into full-blown overtraining and related health symptoms). The first five episodes in this series covered topics like thirst, overheating, frequent urination, sodium/potassium imbalance, cortisol, digestion, menstruation, twitchy muscles, skin problems, sore throats, libido, and cardiac symptoms of overtraining, and in today’s episode, we get into: crash and burn patterns, insomnia, and grinding teeth as symptoms of overtraining.  This is all inspired by the incredibly detailed content you will find in the Primal Fitness Coach Certification Program (learn more at PrimalHealthCoach.com/Brad)—the most comprehensive and broad-reaching education for fitness professionals and enthusiasts you will find anywhere in the world. I spoke to a lot of the world’s leading experts to create this course, and this rigorous, wonderful educational experience offers tremendous detailed written commentary to help you become a certified Primal Health Coach.  In this episode, you will learn about a topic near and dear to my heart—crash and burn patterns—as well as other overtraining symptoms like grinding teeth and cravings.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad Answers Questions From College Students About Health, Fitness, And Career Journey, Part 2

College students pepper me with more thoughtful questions! In this episode, I discuss melatonin supplements, overcoming knee pain, and a lengthy discussion of how to set yourself up for a good night’s sleep, every night. I describe how tracking visceral fat is the best way to determine overall health status, and ponder the philosophical question of where society is headed in the future—more toward health or toward sedentary? I talk about the potentially unhealthy examples presented by bodybuilders and influencers, and how to obtain benefits from consuming social media content. Finally, I describe how to get loved ones into fitness and nutrition. Enjoy, and stay tuned for part 3!   TIMESTAMPS: Continuing to answer questions from students, Max asks Brad about the use of Melatonin to aid sleep. [01:53] Mac wants to know what Brad recommends for knee pain. [09:21] What is the best advice to get a good night’s sleep? [13:00] Julia is asking about BMI. Is it a fair way of determining someone’s health? [22:17] Brad, do you predict that the amount of people living a sedentary lifestyle will increase or decrease in the next few decades? [31:31] What does Brad think about body builders as influencers on social media? [44:10] How do you get a loved one, who desperately needs it, into fitness and nutrition?

John Gray: Sex, Hugs, and Rock-Solid Relationship Tips: How Couples Can Regain Lost Magic Quickly

I'm pleased to celebrate with you on the occasion of publishing our 500th episode of the B.rad podcast! Since launching in 2018, it's been great fun to connect with those of you who shared email feedback and Q&A, and also a tremendous honor to bring so many amazing guests to you. I've learned so much and been so inspired by these interviews—they have truly been life changing. In deciding what special show to air for the 500th episode, I have to go with the fourth appearance of the one and only Dr. John Gray—the #1 best-selling relationship author of all time with his Mars & Venus franchise (MarsVenus.com). My first interview with John in January of 2019 was incredible. It was one of his first interviews after losing his longtime partner Bonnie, and was pretty emotional. I was so touched afterward that I spontaneously proposed to Mia Moore the following day—at baggage claim at Burbank airport! He described the ideal partner and I realized, "Hey, what am I waiting for?"  If you haven’t heard John before, get ready for a wild ride on this show. It’s like he has a windup dial on his back and all he needs is a quick question and he goes to town with intensity, focus, and passion. Some of John's notions and instructions might seem controversial, but as I navigate daily life, I realize more and more that he is spot on. Listen to my show "John Gray Essential Male & Female Relationship Assignments" as I recap ways to achieve relationship harmony and rekindle that lost spark.  In this episode, John gives us a very interesting, entertaining and fast-moving master class on how to achieve relationship breakthroughs amidst all the ruts, dysfunction and burnout that we see in today's world. It's easy to take relationships for granted today, as we succumb to the allure of dopamine-triggering instant gratification, and heck, we even have Apps that make it easy to pursue a succession of exciting, short-term relationships instead of the richness of committing to a lifelong partner.  If you’ve been stuck in a mild rut, or want to learn how to avoid one and keep relationship magic alive for decades, John will explain how in this potentially life-changing episode. Hang on for a fantastic ride where John gives you everything you need to succeed in your love relationship. To engage further with John and his teaching partner and daughter Lauren, enroll in an online or live course on his website—Mia Moore and I are attending a John Gray couples weekend later this summer, so maybe you'll want to join us. Visit MarsVenus.com for details.   TIMESTAMPS: There are hormonal underpinnings that influence modern relationship dynamics. [01:47] Why is it that some longtime couples get stuck in relationship ruts? [03:56] What is happening to young men’s being de-masculinized in today’s world? [06:15] Couples need to have time together and time apart. [09:19] People take things for granted and get bored because we are used to the dopamine spikes we get from something new and different. [12:55] We have to limit our exposure to screens and other things that tempt us so we don’t jeopardize our relationships. It is important to have body to body contact. [15:57] When a woman can be vulnerable, allow herself to feel that vulnerable place, that's what turns men on. [17:59] Women, in general, are insecure about being loved and being seen, whereas men’s vulnerability is about being successful. [21:22] Dopamine increases testosterone in men, and when women feel safe, it increases their estrogen, this creating the atmosphere for sex. [25:50] Men want to feel productive in order to make testosterone. [29:55] Connecting and socializing with others is very important.  [37:55] The male brain doesn’t fully develop many of the masculine genes. There is a big difference in biology between men and women. [39:27] The difference in biology of men and women is the Y chromosome. Mentoring is very important. [42:14] Anything a woman does that lowers stress, is raising her estrogen. [45:51] So you gotta do something first, solve the problem, deal with the challenge, then go chill and rebuild testosterone. [47:55] The way women and men communicate is very different and should be understood so the talk between the couple is clear. [50:09] The feeling that you are being appreciated and trusted, makes a big impact, particularly in men. [54:45] In same sex couples, they have a male and female side inside of each of them. [59:52] Being vulnerable is not always positive. It can be the beginning of a violent confrontation. [01:04:25] Today’s females biggest fear is her partner’s anger. [01:10:24] One tip is for the woman to get for four hugs a day and ask, “Do you love me?” Research shows that if you have sex more than once a week, the testosterone level in the man will diminish. [01:23:17] Little things make a big difference for women. Little things do very little for men. [01:29:27] Women should learn to ask for things, even when it is something she can do for herself.

Brad’s Precision Medicine Experience With Wild Health

Get ready to go deep into the cutting edge of health optimization that is customized precision medicine! I discuss my personal experience with WildHealth.com precision medicine, so this show focuses on the results of my genetic testing, blood testing, and expert 1:1 physician and health coach support. Today, we have an opportunity like never before to personalize our health data and medical guidance, and strive for optimization instead of just disease prevention like the mainstream model.  As I detail the results of my genetic testing, you’ll realize how running your own DNA report can reveal numerous particulars in your genetic profile that influence your diet, exercise, sleep and lifestyle behaviors. You can learn how your genetic variations called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms, aka “snips”) expose your personal frailties, tendencies, and sensitivities, so you can dial in the right lifestyle practices like never before.  One profound example is my genetic report for muscle fiber ratios, where I’m around 54% strength/power and 46% endurance. This means I respond well to high intensity workouts, but require more recovery time, and that I have difficulty with high volume endurance training. Well, I battled against reality during my triathlete career, and I wish I’d known this information so I could have designed a more appropriate customized program. Diet is also an extremely important area to apply your genetic insights to, since you can discover things like an increased need for choline and B vitamins, tolerance to carbs and fats, and other things. Then, cross reference your comprehensive blood panel to reveal the impact of your genetics and your current lifestyle behaviors. Some folks thrive off vegan plant-based, others on carnivore, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of following the latest fad or become convinced by whoever conveys their message the loudest. No more of that, and no more guesswork when it comes to matters of life or death. I strongly encourage you to consider the great offering from Wild Health. There are numerous other providers offering online precision medicine too, and I’m really impressed by the thoughtfulness and fantastic personal coaching I receive from my Wild Health physician, Dr. Tom McCoy, and my coach Ray Fernandez. Here is the official promo message from WildHealth.com, and I can extend a generous 20% discount on your services with the code BRADPODCAST. Wild Health is an online provider of comprehensive health consultation services. They offer DNA analysis, custom lab panels, extensive medical intake with family history and lifestyle preferences, and regular online visits with a board-certified precision medicine physician, and a health coach—whom you can message anytime through their convenient app. Wild Health evaluates your data to determine what your body needs for nutrition, exercise, sleep, and supplements—you can experiment, consult, and re-test to get everything dialed in. You’ll get a cutting edge epigenetic test of DNA methylation to calculate your all-important biological age, and have fun lowering your age over time instead of following the common path to accelerated aging.   TIMESTAMPS: Customized one-on-one testing and consultation are available in labs independent of the mainstream medicine. [01:57] These tests can determine your ancestral genetic attributes regarding physical factors, diet, and maybe explain why some things work with others but not for you. [04:18] Eighty percent of adult population in the world is lactose intolerant. [08:27] LDL alone is not a reliable risk factor for heart disease. [12:48] If your doctor still refers to LDL as bad cholesterol, they are 30 or 40 years behind the emerging science.  [15:53] Methylation is representing the body’s ability to carry out the process of adding carbon atoms or methyl groups to compounds. It tells you how well you are processing nutrients and recovering from stress. [21:10] When you have leaky gut syndrome, you are not extracting and assimilating the nutrients from your diet. [23:36] Brad found out much about his entire physical being after these tests.  He found out many vitamins and minerals that he was sensitive to. It is very important to get Vitamin D from sun exposure. [28:32] Another section of the report gives astonishing insight with strength to endurance ratio. Brad would have trained differently had he had that information. [36:46] Even if you are training for short races, you need to emphasize comfortably paced aerobic training to build your aerobic base.  [45:07] The report points out if you are getting enough good sleep, which is so very important. [51:52] Brad finds out about his own genes that he has a slower breakdown of the cannabinoids. He also finds that his response to the ketogenic diet is associated with less cognitive benefit from ketosis.   [01:01:46] Brad is encouraging everyone to get an analysis of their biological age, and your diet needs along with strength to endurance ratio. [01:06:40] Deepak Chopra says there are three ages that are relevant: your birth age, your biological age, and your psychological age. [01:11:50] The blood’s lab reports are very informative and should be monitored frequently. Some of the most important tests to get are testosterone, Vitamin D, and fasting insulin.

Brad Answers Questions From College Students About Health, Fitness, And Career Journey (Part 1)

My old friend Courtney on the east coast has me occasionally speak to her college students studying health and fitness. As part of their assignment, they peppered me with really thoughtful questions. It was great to reflect on the thought processes of today's youth, and their keen interest in living, healthy, active, evolved lifestyles. I think you will get some amusement and value out of my answers, so please enjoy this Part 1. They hit me with tons of questions, so stay tuned for Part 2. Note: the background noise is from Los Angeles traffic as I recorded in the car, for some reason I communicate well under pressure! These questions were really thoughtful and wide-ranging. I talk about my career transition from accountant to pro triathlete, all kinds of diet insights and tips, lots of talk about hot and cold therapy, how to manage health goals when you have a crazy life schedule, how to eat healthy on a budget, and what it’s like to ride 100 miles on no calories! These students are from Quincy College in Boston, MA, and many are older students taking advantage of MA free-tuition offers for first-time adult college students—including ex-military folks. Enjoy!   TIMESTAMPS: Max asked me about my career as a triathlete.  What did my coworkers comment about when I left the job to start the career?  Was I confident when I left the job? [01:06] How did you feel when you rode your bike a hundred miles with no calories? [05:26] Do you believe that if you don’t eat processed foods, you can’t get fat? (Quote from Dr. Robert Lustig) [06:34] What are your favorite energy-boosting foods? It is not energy-boosting unless it is natural, nutritious and easy to digest. [09:33] Does taking magnesium and vitamin D help with mental health? [11:04] What can we do about lightheadedness and cramping?  Those things are usually caused by overexertion. [12:42] You talk about getting away from everyday stresses and doing less.  What about people who cannot afford to do that? [14:30] What are your thoughts on saunas, hot tubs, and steam rooms? What about cold therapy? [18:51] What are your biggest changes in your mentality now as opposed to when you were a collegiate or a young professional athlete? [24:40] A friend drank nothing but water for three days and lost a lot of weight. What are your thoughts about water fasting? And what are the best snacks for toddlers? [26:09] What's a healthier option; almond milk, oat milk, or normal milk? [28:48]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Breather: Male and Female Relationship Assignments From John Gray

It’s a breather show with insights from Dr. John Gray (author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus) because we can never get enough reminders, primers, and insights from the one and only John Gray! Possibly my favorite podcast guest ever, my first interview with John was so profound it inspired me to propose to Mia Moore the very next day! I can’t wait to attend one of his weekend retreats for couples one day soon, but for now, enjoy a quick reminder and recap of the essential male and female relationship assignments—especially as it pertains to the very familiar rut that couples can fall into after years together. This is a great show to listen to if you want to know how you can immediately extricate yourself from relationship ruts and dysfunction and how you can rekindle the passion, respect, communication, fun, and joy that comes from being in a long-term romantic partnership.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad Kearns: Hard Work Is Overrated, Kobe And Tiger Are Embellishing, And Young Athletes Need More Rest

Is hard work overrated? I share my thoughts on this in today’s episode, which I was inspired to record after watching a TikTok video a friend sent me about the importance of working hard, never missing a day, and why cranking out 100 shots a day is the “simple formula” to help you get a full scholarship. As you will hear, I strongly disagree with the premise, which has been firmly disproven with emerging science. If you are someone who struggles with balance or taking a day off, this is a great episode to listen to: you will learn how never taking a day off affects your physical and mental health, the science behind the importance of taking breaks and giving your brain the time it needs to rest, and the truth behind the effectiveness of the 10,000 theory Malcolm Gladwell adopted and described in his book Outliers. I also talk about why rest is such a necessity for young athletes and reveal that even people like Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods have been guilty of embellishing facts and going to extremes for the sake of “hard work.”   TIMESTAMPS: After playing an excerpt from a LaCrosse player about the importance of working hard on your chosen sport, Brad discusses the ramifications of overdoing it. [00:38] Yes, practicing hard at your sport should get you away from having your face and body stuck in inactivity and video games. [02:24] The notion of never taking a day off can easily harbor an unhealthy, obsessive mindset, physical exhaustion and overuse injuries, which are so predominant in competitive youth sports today. [04:27] MRI studies show different areas of the brain light up depending on the activity like practice versus a tense competitive situation. [07:29] Balance, rest and a strategic approach are going to be the main variables that will allow the young athlete to thrive and develop during their four years of high school career. {09:28] What is your child’s natural destiny? The best will rise to the top, not necessarily because they shot 500 shots each day. [12:10] Brad talks about two high jump competitors whose total experiences in the sport are so different. There’s talent and genetics that come into play. [22:15]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Louise Digby: How Aging Women Can Lose Body Fat

Listeners, please welcome Louise Digby to the show, from all the way over from the UK! It is so nice to connect with an international guest like Louise and to hear, unfortunately, that the same problems that exist in America also exist in Europe, especially when it comes to the issues aging women have with losing body fat. In this episode, you will hear us discuss a variety of topics, especially the roadblocks and main reasons for having trouble maintaining your desired body composition. We discuss the foods that cause system wide inflammation and how chronic inflammation influences fat metabolism and causes your body to store extra body fat, especially visceral fat, as well as the difference between visceral fat and subcutaneous fat. You’ll also learn about the importance of nurturing a healthy estrogen balance (as well as healthy testosterone balance), why it’s so helpful to manage stress when you’re trying to lose excess body fat, how chronic stress affects your metabolism, how vitamin D health affects fat metabolism, and actionable tidbits from Louise that will help you lose weight easily.  Louise Digby is a BANT registered nutritional therapist, weight loss expert, and the creator of the Nourish Method, an online programme that addresses the lifestyle factors that impact women’s fat-burning and the mindset challenges causing self-sabotage. She also hosts the Thriving Metabolism Podcast, which she created to guide and educate women about the nuances around metabolic health, hormones, gut health, and more in the context of weight loss.   TIMESTAMPS: What are the roadblocks for losing excess body fat? [00:47] If you are stressed, your metabolism isn’t going to work for you. People are doing what they are told to do and not seeing any results. [01:50] Chronic inflammation is a huge contributor to one’s inability for burn fat. How does one get into that mess? [06:29] There are some tests that can reveal chronic inflammation. [10:03] Having optimum levels of Vitamin D is important. [13:09] Inflammation is a good thing when it helps us repair and recover.  Its uncontrolled inflammation that becomes the problem {19:30] Magnesium is difficult to obtain in today’s modern diet because of soil depletion but it is very important for your body. [21:46] Cortisol is the preeminent stress hormone. [22:44] Nutrient deficient foods hinder our immune system from functioning well. [26:47] What’s really going on is we are consuming nutrient deficient processed foods that contain edible food-like substances that the body reacts to adversely. [29:56] What are the particular problems females have when they come to Louise’s practice? [33:01] When our estrogen is lower, we are more likely to experience insulin resistance so it will be more difficult to manage our blood sugar and therefore manage our weight. [37:40] Why are women not as interested in strength training as opposed to cardio? [39:03] What is the difference between visceral fat, belly fat, and subcutaneous fat? [43:14] What can people do to track their progress besides looking at their scale? The scale is a poor reflection of your overall progress.

Breather: The Truth Behind Running Overuse Injuries

Did you know that there is no data that has ever been presented that has shown that elevated, cushioned shoes prevent running injuries? In this podcast, we’re getting to the truth behind the stunning and embarrassing rate of overuse injuries. A 2021 meta study from Europe revealed an annual injury rate of 37 to 56% of regular runners, Runner’s World reported 46% of runners get injured every year, a study from Yale reports 50%, while Wake Forest Biomechanics Laboratory says 79% of runners get an overuse injury every year. Interestingly, The American College of Sports Medicine states that 25% of all runners are sidelined at a given time—a stat worse than the injury rates for NFL players (31 percent injured annually with four percent at a given time)! In this episode, we get to the bottom of this issue, since there have been many misconceptions and misunderstandings about what is causing these running inquiries, and the nuances are quite interesting. As you will learn, one of the great lies of the fitness industry that has ever been propagated is that elevated, cushioned shoes prevent injuries—a lie that has been going on for 50 years! This is the perfect show to listen to if you want to learn the truth about cushioned shoes and the science that explains why they do not support foot health and athletic performance and actually generate 7 times more impact trauma than landing in bare feet. As you will hear, the entire premise of elevated, cushioned running shoes is deeply flawed—what they really do is enable people to run long distances and get injured.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad Kearns: The Importance Of Developing The Aerobic System

I want to talk about the concept of aerobic deficiency—something that is very common, even amongst very fit, high-performing athletes. Aerobic deficiency (a term coined by Dr. Phil Maffetone), or anaerobic excess, means that while you’ve developed tremendous performance skills, the capacity of the aerobic system is lacking due to insufficient aerobic conditioning/workouts. So while you are good for short bursts of power, your overall athletic potential is limited by insufficient development of the aerobic system. As you will hear in this show, it’s important to remember that even the most explosive, powerful athletes require sufficient aerobic conditioning in order to thrive in the long duration workouts that they perform in order to hone their abilities so they can compete in activities like powerlifting and sprinting. If you are the type of person who will go out to sprint practice for an hour or even up to two hours, this is an episode you don’t want to miss. As you’ll learn, even if you are also stretching and resting throughout that practice session, the aerobic system is still working for the entire duration of the workout—the same concept applies to going to the gym to perform heavy weight lifting sessions. If you want to learn how to sufficiently develop your aerobic system, this episode will walk you through every step and teach you how to do it.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Breather: Why Slowing Down Will Help You Go Faster

In this breather show, you will learn how slowing down can actually help you go faster, which is a crucial subject to gain a deep understanding and appreciation of, lest you have the inclination as a hard-driving athlete to speed up a little bit in the pursuit of getting fitter.  It is an unassailable fact of exercise physiology that a robust aerobic system is a prerequisite for a robust anaerobic system. As you will hear in this episode, your aerobic energy producing enzymes and muscle fibers are intertwined with your fast twitch muscle fibers and glycolytic enzymes, and they supply them with the nutrients, blood, and oxygen they need to contract forcefully (without using oxygen) for short duration. Then, they need to be refueled and replenished, and this is where the aerobic system comes in—by then facilitating the removal of waste products and energy replenishment afterward. If you want to learn why slowing down will help you go faster, what happens to an aerobic system that is not well conditioned to handle high intensity exercise, and how to avoid self-inflicted cellular damage and fatigue, this is the episode for you.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Deconstructing Dr. Tommy Wood; Developing Metabolic Efficiency And A Healthy Gut For The Win! (Part 2)

I am pleased to introduce a rebroadcast of my Deconstructing Dr. Tommy Wood Insights, part 2 show! This episode covers a variety of topics, such as gut health and how it relates to autoimmune and other inflammatory conditions, polarized training, the benefits of consuming more food (and how you know when to dial it back), how long the (negative) effects of vegetable oil stay in your system, carbohydrates, and more.   TIMESTAMPS:  There’s a tremendous link between gut health and cognitive conditions like depression. [02:07]  What is the problem with canola oil once in a while? [05:57]  A lot of people find that just eliminating gluten from the diet, causes a quick improvement in digestive symptoms. [08:08]  If you cut process carbs from your diet, you can meet your glucose needs in other ways. [09:17]  Water retention plays a big part as a result of carbohydrate ingestion. [11:46]  Going over the recommended maximum heart rate is not good. Learn about polarized training. [14:56]  You can mess up your gut health by NOT doing polarized training. [20:02]  An interesting point is that as an athlete doing a hard workout, you’re pushing yourself pretty hard, you’re depleting cellular energy.  [20:39]  Autophagy is a good thing: starving your cells of energy in contrast to overfeeding them. [22:03]  Be careful about overdoing it. [24:21]  Brad’s intuitive approach to Keto eating is working well for him. [25:38]  If you have a “cheat day” you’ll have that concept in your brain and that means there’s something wrong with your baseline diet.  [27:25]  Why is it so difficult to keep our commitments aligned with our highest ideals?

Breather: Overtraining Symptoms Series - Cardiac Symptoms Of Overtraining

Welcome to a new episode in the ongoing series of symptoms and signs of overreaching, overtraining, and burnout! This content has been inspired by the amazing, comprehensive look at overtraining that I’ve spent a long time working on and is unlike anything you will find anywhere. I intended this to be the go-to guide for everyone—whether you’re working with people as a coach, or if you just want to know your body and how the stress response can fool you into continuing to slam workouts and burn the candles at both ends. In this breather show, I talk about testing HRV (resting heart rate) and factors that can affect your measurements, checking blood pressure frequently, why it’s healthier to have greater variation in beat-to-beat intervals, why a metronomically beating heart is actually indicative of overstress patterns, and other cardiac symptoms you’ll want to know so you can avoid overtraining and burnout.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad Kearns: Thoughts About The $2 Million Longevity Man Bryan Johnson

My thoughts on the $2 million dollar anti-aging man? You’ll hear them all in this episode—I’m talking about Bryan Johnson and his highly debated lifestyle. You may have already heard of Bryan, a tech centi-millionaire based in Los Angeles, since he has become a pretty controversial figure and has faced a lot of ridicule for ridiculously regimented and heavily tested life (think biohacking, but on an extreme level).  Based in Los Angeles, Bryan has dedicated his life to reversing the aging process and promoting his movement which he calls, “Don’t Die.” I will admit I used to view Bryan’s whole lifestyle as super weird, especially the $2 million dollars a year part, which seemed not just totally unrelatable, but also potentially uninteresting and inapplicable. However, I decided to learn more about Bryan and listened to interviews he gave with people like Gabby Reece, and I started to see something different—someone who was generous, interesting, and kind-hearted, who was genuinely just trying to do something grand to help humanity. As you will hear, I am not planning on implementing many of his methods, but I wanted to educate myself about him so I could share my thoughts about his lifestyle from an informed perspective.  In this episode, I talk about the many elements of Bryan’s lifestyle and beliefs and share my personal opinions on his choices, such as my thoughts on Bryan’s assertion that AI is going to be the best way to care for our health (and make our lifestyle decisions) in the future, why sleep is his #1 priority, if I will consider emulating his early bed-time, his choice to adhere to a calorie deficient diet, and more.   TIMESTAMPS: Bryan asserts that artificial intelligence is very quickly going to be the best way to care for our health. [04:48] Have we really lost our own free will and do we outsource our decision making? [07:42] We are all addicts to things like processed foods and processed sugar and illegal and legal substances. [11:36] Good sleep is still the number one habit of importance for health. [14:35] Are you open to outsourcing your athletic training and diet decisions to AI? [19:37] Brad discusses Bryan Johnson’s “perfected” diet. [25:43] The caloric restriction studies, as a key to longevity, are entirely based on animals rather than humans. [29:52] The problem of modern society is we, in general, eat too much, store too many calories and burn too few calories. [34:25] Brad describes his dietary practices and training regimen. He disagrees with Johnson. [37:24] Johnson contends that running cold also extends longevity.  Brad disagrees. [42:20] The plant-based diet is okay for the right reasons, however, much of the beliefs about it are faulty. [47:07] Brad questions Johnson’s ideas about regimented exercise. It’s all about enjoying your fitness pursuits.

Breather: Overtraining Symptoms Series - Could Libido Be The Single Best Regulator Of Training Stress-Rest Balance In Training?

Welcome to another episode in the continuing series about signs and symptoms of overtraining, overreaching, and impending burnout. As you’ll hear in this episode, libido is the single best regulator of training, and I would argue that libido is a proxy for your overall state of heat and vitality, especially as you age, since cortisol doesn’t just antagonize testosterone—it antagonizes estrogen as well.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad Kearns: How Therapeutic Cold Exposure Can Literally Reverse Aging

We’re going to get really science-y in today’s episode, but thanks to my former podcast guest Dude Spellings and his brilliant interpretations of the research published by Dr. Jack Kruse on cold thermogenesis, we will be reviewing these mind-blowing insights in an easy to understand way. If you want to learn essential information about cold therapy, the science behind its benefits, and how it can actually reverse the aging process through therapeutic cold exposure by enhancing mitochondrial function (crucial to longevity, since mitochondrial dysfunction is the root cause of all disease), this is the episode for you.    TIMESTAMPS: You can reverse the aging process through therapeutic cold exposure by enhancing mitochondrial function. [00:40] When water is cooled, its volume expands.  When water heats up, its volume shrinks. [05:58] The faster you walk, the greater is your longevity potential. [08:16] Every year 98% of all the atoms in the human body have been exchanged. (Deepak Chopra) [14:07] The cold water forces your mitochondria to make heat and that heat shrinks the fluid inside your cell. [21:46]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Take The (Cold) Plunge!

Breather: Overtraining Symptoms Series - Twitchy Muscles, Skin Problems, Sore Throats

In this show, we continue our discussion about symptoms of overtraining. The symptoms discussed in today’s show however, are particularly important because they are not symptoms that most people typically associate with overtraining. I’m talking about twitchy muscles, issues with your skin (acne, rashes, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and even excessively dry skin), and the sudden appearance of a sore, scratchy throat. As you will learn in this episode, even having the slightest scratchy, sore, or dry throat is a telltale, early warning sign of something more serious—and ignoring it and continuing to train will only cause more problems. Tune into this breather show if you want to learn more about important warning signs of overtraining and the most appropriate ways to respond to these symptoms when you experience them.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Dr. Casey Means: Good Energy, Mitochondrial Health, And How To Overcome Our Broken Medical System

Get ready for a powerful, informative, and passionate show with my good friend, Dr. Casey Means! It’s been four years since our first show, and Dr. Casey is back to talk about the culmination of her life’s work—her book Good Energy: The Surprising Connection Between Metabolism and Limitless Health, which she wrote with her brother, Calley Means. In this show, Dr. Casey goes after the broken medical industrial complex, a subject that is of deep significance for her since (as she talked about in our first show) she used to be a dutiful doctor with the highest training possible who was just trying to do her best—until she realized how dysfunctional the whole system was. This was what sparked her decision to pursue a career in the alternative health world instead, and as you will hear, this issue has only become more important and personal to her since she experienced such deep frustration and pain while watching her mother die of a preventable disease. Listen to this episode if you want to learn about all the nuances of our profit-driven medical system, the science and details of how mitochondrial function essentially represents the essence of our health, why mitochondrial dysfunction represents the whole cause of all disease, the scary statistic about Americans and metabolic syndrome risk factors that shocked me, and more! Casey Means, MD is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tech-enabled tools that can inform smart, personalized, and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices.   TIMESTAMPS: Brad introduces Dr. Casey Means, a physician who discusses some of the problems in the medical system. [01:00] There is a sense of discomfort with the trajectory that we’re going on as Americans. Much of it has to do with our food culture.  [03:18] Casey uses the example of her 72-year-old mother who died even though she was considered a normal “healthy” person. [08:05] We are pointing the arrow at symptom management for what we think are all these different diseases and not looking inside the cell and treating there. [10:38] Every institution be it medical schools, pharmaceutical companies to hospitals to insurance companies makes more money when you are sick than if you are well. [15:13] “Everything in moderation” is such a common phrase.  Do you want artificial pesticides in your food in moderation? Toxic substances in moderation? [25:00] We have been systemically disempowered as individuals to feel competent in understanding our own health. [31:34] Will it always pay off to eliminate processed foods or can people get away with continuing to eat the regular American diet? [35:12] What happens to the mitochondria when you consume nutrient-deficient ultra-processed food? [42:04] Most packaged frozen processed fast food contains all three kinds of processed foods, grains, sugar, seed oils. [49:06] Try to keep your blood sugar very stable in the morning to set yourself up for a successful day. [50:53] There are five food components Casey recommends that you want to make sure you include. [56:31] If you straighten up your food choices, within a couple of months you should have a decrease in metabolic disease like diabetes or pre-diabetes. [01:04:00] Why isn’t the medical community up-to-date on this whole dietary adjustment premise? [01:10:15] How do genetics come into play?

Breather: Cortisol, Digestion, And Menstruation

Here we go with another breather show in this series about overtraining symptoms, warning signs, and ways to take corrective action. As you can tell by the title of this show, this episode is all about the link between cortisol, digestion, and menstruation. You will learn about healthy cortisol function and why it’s essential for healthy living, symptoms of cortisol dysregulation to watch out for, how too much cortisol effects your body, the importance of regular meal times and how stress negatively impacts digestion and nutrient absorption, how overtraining and stress can alter the menstrual cycle, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Q&A: Optimal Sprint Duration, Genetics Of Sleep, Blue Zones Hype Vs. Truth, Brad Being Honest

Great questions from listeners in this Q&A show, including the subtle and natural taste of B.rad Superfuel versus most ultra-sweet proteins, walking barefoot safely, if I can really “sprint” for 30,40,50 seconds? (no! that’s a HIIT session), are sleep requirements genetic? (yes—hear more in my show about sleep with RiseScience founder Jeff Kahn) and tips for custom designing a sensible cold therapy routine. I also talk about how Australia boasts 10% of our audience (guessing it’s probably because they love outdoor, active lifestyles), recommend blood tests for peak performers to strive for way better than today’s pathetic “normal”, and talk about if competitive mindsets are genetic or trainable (both!) and how to cultivate pure motivation as a triathlete by referencing my book, How To Improve Your (Triathlon) Time. Finally, I talk about the Blue Zones documentary—the inaccuracy of the cherry-picked and misrepresented “plant-based” attribute (Blue Zones eat well-sourced animal products), the real secret to Blue Zones longevity (such as extensive movement and strong social connections), whether or not I am completely honest about my own health and fitness journey, and if I’m willing to change my mind in regards to health information (if you’ve been listening to me for a while, you can guess this answer easily!).    TIMESTAMPS: Kenny wants to share his enthusiasm for B.rad’s Whey Protein, even though at first, he thought the taste too bland. You want to be careful when reading labels. “natural flavoring” or “natural flavors” is code word for chemicals.  [00:48] Are Peluvas superior to barefoot for making structural changes faster? [05:14] Aberdeen Shire Guitar Teacher asks: How long should you sprint to achieve the health benefits? A true sprint is anything that’s eight seconds or less in duration. [08:56] David Gifford works hard and really needs his sleep. How does that work with a spouse who is the opposite? [18:52] On YouTube, Red Eye asks about cold therapy sessions and the Shiver Protocol. [21:44]  Alan Placencia from Australia wants input on blood tests. Getting a fasting insulin number is very important. The triglycerides to HDL ratio is also important. [25:32] Male hormone panels indicate how you compare for your age group. Unfortunately, there has been a steady decline in the average male testosterone level. {[31:30] James Hall asks to what extent do you reckon that mindset and mentality is genetic versus what is learned and trainable? [34:07] Alistair Henderson talks about Brad’s Triathlon book and about the Blue Zone, the long living peoples around the world that have an active, energetic lifestyle [36:31] Free Speech Joe commented on Apple Podcasts that he appreciates Brad’s style of honesty and flexibility.

Breather: Overtraining Symptoms Series - Thirst, Overheating, Frequent Urination, And Sodium-Potassium Imbalance

Welcome to another addition in our long series of commentary about the comprehensive signs of overreaching and overtraining. This content is inspired by the incredibly thorough look at all aspects of overtraining and remedies that is contained in the Primal Fitness Expert Certification course, and this topic is such an important one to discuss—it is so helpful and supportive to have extensive knowledge about how body works, as well as how it can fool you by over producing stress hormones and making you feel great, not sore, and full of energy so you continue to train harder and harder. As you will hear, you will always crash and burn eventually, so having an understanding the nuances of this and being able to identify the little signs that come up so you can take corrective action and back off (even if you’re feeling hyped up and energized to do more training) is an integral part of fitness and overall wellness. Tune into the episode to learn what excessive thirst often signifies, the symptoms of chronic dehydration and failure to hydrate optimally, the importance of rehydration and why merely chugging a gallon of water after a sweaty workout isn’t enough, how to ensure that your body absorbs all the fluid it needs, how you can determine when your autonomic nervous system is out of balance, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Dr. Judson Brandeis: Should I Go On Hormone Replacement? And Popular Protocols For Perfecting Penile Performance

I am so pleased to welcome Dr. Judson Brandeis, America’s favorite urologist, back to the show for a second interview! His Brandeis MD clinic is at the absolute cutting edge of male sexual wellness and longevity technology, and we talk about some of the treatments and protocols I went through when I was at his office for our first show. In this episode, we get further into the discussion of sexual health and how sexual function is a reliable indicator for your overall vascular health (in fact, diminished sexual function is a 10-year warning for eventual cardiovascular disease risk!) and talk about blood flow, how and why certain drugs work, and GAINSwave shockwave therapy to improve penile vascular health. You will learn about the science of erections and how you get erections, how to sustain them, where drugs like Cialis and Viagra help, and where they will just be bandaids on your dysfunctional vascular system.  You will also hear about the benefits of certain drugs (such as Cialis, which decreases the incidence of heart attacks and improves urinary function, and Viagra, which reduces the risk of dementia) and the importance of testosterone optimization, both naturally and through pharmaceutical intervention, for sexual health and penile performance.   BrandeisMD is a national leader in technology and innovations in sexual medicine. Dr. Judson Brandeis is the National Director of Clinical Excellence for GAINSWave and created the largest study of Shockwave Therapy for ED ever, and BrandeisMD was one of the first offices in California to offer PT-141, Oxytocin, and Apomorphine for erectile dysfunction. Listen to our previous interview linked below.   TIMESTAMPS: If you are keeping your muscle mass, if you’re looking good in your body composition, this correlates directly with sexual function.   [00:38] What tendencies does he see in his clinic at the different ages of the patients? [02:29] Gainswave is a high frequency shock wave treatment that’s designed for penile function. As you age, you begin to clog blood vessels. [04:45] You have to optimize the blood flow to the penis. [06:49] You need an injury response for blood to the penis like damaging the muscles tissue after bicep curl. [10:37] Nitric oxide boosters are a wonderful way to decrease blood pressure.  [11:40] The psychological aspect is 50 percent of the whole process of erection. If your relationship is not where you want it to be, then it is not going to work.  [16:56] If you are developing erectile dysfunction, it is important to see a doctor because taking a pill is not going to fix the underlying problem. [22:40] Going into Gainswave office because of erectile problems, is not a magical cure.  One has to live a healthy lifestyle. [26:59] If you are not real active, your body won’t make as much testosterone. [32:43] The downsides of replacement therapy are growth of the prostate, although it does not cause cancer, and loss of hair. [35:10] Educate yourself about testosterone.  There are many people harming themselves from misuse of what they think will help them. [38:27] It is important to understand the effects of testosterone therapy.  You might be telling your testes to stop making their own. What is happening to your muscles? [49:16] Adequate sleep is most important for overall health. [56:24] To summarize, what are the messages for the patients from Dr. Brandeis?

Breather: Are Muscle Cramps Indicative Of Overtraining?

There are two main types of cramps: sudden-onset and a severe localized cramp of a specific muscle (e.g., the right calf) is more likely due to central nervous system fatigue than dehydration or electrolyte depletion. Cramps that progress from mild to severe and are bilateral (i.e., both calves or both hamstrings) are more likely due to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Listen to this episode to discover how both types of cramps are not just bad luck that day or needing another scoop of electrolyte powder, but likely associated with overly-stressful workout patterns in general!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Q&A: Fueling During Endurance Exercise, Losing Fat Quickly, Calcium Scans For Athletes, Adjusting MAF Heart Rates

In this Q&A, I share the story of an ultra-endurance athlete who improved their health and lowered blood pressure by adding meat to their diet, if we need to consume fat (bacon and avocado!) during ultramarathons (short answer: no!), and whether or not I recommend eating fruit and high protein every day, regardless of athletic goals? I also share the story of a couple who lost lots of excess body fat in two months by using keto and intermittent fasting and talk about the importance of looking at the big picture of heart disease risk factors and doing further testing if necessary. Finally, should longtime extreme endurance athletes consider a CAC (coronary artery calcium scan), and can fit, older athletes add five beats or more to MAF heart rate? Maybe, but as you will hear in this episode, it’s also important to be conservative with MAF.   TIMESTAMPS: Joe is asking about the changes he has made in his diet and what they brought about.  If he is doing marathons, ultras and Ironman, it is not a good idea to introduce fasting into his regimen as he might not be getting enough protein. [00:24] If you are concerned about weight gain, remember that protein calories are not going to add body fat. [04:18] Participation in high endurance sports, even for 25 years, can bring high blood pressure, but you can find it decreases by adding red meat into the diet. [05:19] Joe is asking Brad if he is recommending fruit and protein every day no matter where you are in your training cycle? [07:10] Remember that snacking during endurance activity is not the best time to digest foods because the blood is diverted from your digestive system into your working extremities. [09:10] Chris shares how he and his wife found amazing changes in their lives after following Brad’s information on diet. [14:13] Ideally your body measurement should look at waist to height ratio.

Breather: Symptoms of Overtraining During Workouts

It’s important to pay close attention at all times to symptoms of overreaching and overtraining and take corrective action immediately (this is true for both novices and competitive types), and this episode will teach you how to do this. As you will hear, the best leading indicator of overtraining is a slower MAF test performance—this is where you complete a fixed course (e.g., 8 laps of the track, or pedal 4 miles on stationary bike), holding your heart rate as close as possible to “fat max” aka aerobic maximum, and record your time. A slower time means you are out of stress-rest balance, and this is true even if you are experiencing competitive success at higher heart rates. If you want to learn how to identify and handle overtraining symptoms, this is the episode for you!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

B.rad Rebroadcast: Dr. Elisha Goldstein - Mindfulness In The Age Of Distractibility And Hyper-Connectivity

I have an awesome and beautiful podcast for you today from Dr. Elisha Goldstein—founder of the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, CA, along with his wife, co-founder Stefanie. They do incredible work there and this interview was one of the best discussions I’ve had for this show—and it will stop all us distracted, multitasking, text binging, social media addicted modern humans in our tracks and rock our world!  We all know the dangers and drawbacks of hyper-connectivity and distractibility, and our diminishing focus and mindfulness in hectic modern life, but we seem to be collectively shrugging our shoulders, complaining a bit here and there, and carrying on, glued to our devices. My visit with Dr. Goldstein had a deep impact on me, because he explained beautifully how our repeated use of technology gets integrated into habit. We have engaged in “intentional practice and repeated it until it becomes automatic–until it becomes habit.” We often talk about habit-forming in a positive context, but what about undesirable, stress-producing behaviors that have become habits to our detriment? We know that humans are wired to respond with a dopamine burst to novel stimulation in our environment; in primal times it was a rustling in the bushes, today it’s the ding of text message. Dr. Goldstein explains that he too loves technology and while it can improve our lives in many ways, we have to be mindful and disciplined in our use of technology. In this episode, we discuss the difficulty of transforming to a new way of being because of the powerful force of habits and Dr. Goldstein explains how we can take control and experience more happiness and peace in daily life through three simple steps. Remember, habit retraining requires repetition and endurance. Dr. Goldstein has written books like Uncovering Happiness, The NOW Effect, Mindfulness Meditation, MSBR Every Day stands for (mindfulness based stress reduction). He operates the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles with his wife Stefanie. They offer an awesome six-month intensive online Course in Mindful Living with expert guidance and group support. Slow down, relax, and listen carefully to this show.   TIMESTAMPS: Practicing mindfulness has brought tremendous peace to many who desperately need escape from the stresses of today’s life. [00:43] We are constantly pulled in many directions. [04:36] Hyperconnectivity can become a habit and therefore hard to control. [12:17] If you stop to rest or meditate, you might be inspiring the folks around you to take a break too. [16:08] Our behaviors are contagious to other people. [19:21] Learn to take note of when your body is bracing. [24:25] It is helpful to have some disciplined activity, especially first thing in the morning. [28:35] Peeling an orange changed Dr. Goldstein’s life. [33:34] The brain is always on the lookout for issues that can cause problems.  [36:04] Blame is often misdirected when we have uncomfortable emotion. [38:20] Learn to really pay attention to yourself and others. [41:50] We are addicted to stimulation. There is surprising power of waiting/boredom.  Imagine if you mastered restlessness and anxiety.  [46:47] When you are relaxed, you are more open to inspiration. [51:55] Learn to forgive yourself for not doing something that you had intended to do.

Breather: Understand Overreaching As Adaptive, But Dangerous

“Overreaching” is a popular term to describe a period of escalated training that generates fitness improvements or competitive success, but which is not sustainable over the long term. As you’ll learn during this breather show, overreaching should be best characterized as early-stage overtraining—plenty of overreaching symptoms hint at imbalance and impending doom (they can certainly feel unpleasant), yet athletes often become intoxicated by the mood-elevating, painkilling effects of excess stress hormone production and the satisfaction of better workouts and superior competitive performances. Consequently, athletes routinely ignore overreaching symptoms, so they ultimately progress into a state of full-blown overtraining/burnout.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Brad: Forget The Diet Wars! Focus On "Perform, Recover"

I have had it with the stupid diet wars, so it’s time for a rant and an episode highlighting the big picture perspective of leading a healthy, active, energetic lifestyle and the benefits of focusing on “perform, recover, perform, recover”—my new mantra, which should supercede all the arguing and nitpicking we do about the particulars of plant-based vs animal-based diets, etc.  This show was inspired by my friend sending me an innocent email reporting the results of a Stanford study that’s been getting a lot of headlines lately about identical twins who were each fed a different diet for eight weeks (one vegan, one animal based). I talk about the study in this show, including who funded the study in the first place (would you be shocked to learn it was a plant-based company?!), the importance of looking beyond headlines when it comes to health, and big picture insights that will help you navigate to the healthiest, most nutritious diet, and keep you on the path to longevity and disease prevention.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Breather: The Biochemistry Of Overtraining Audio

It’s important to understand how the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis works relating to the stress response, particularly how we abuse delicate fight or flight mechanisms in hectic, high stress modern life and laying overly-stressful training patterns on top of that. It’s important to understand the endorphin rush through the evolutionary biology lens of life or death repercussions, rather than get addicted to the rush and believe this is positive and healthy. When the HPA axis is abused, you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning and functioning normally, and can suffer from common chronic health problems including gut dysfunction, and adrenal and thyroid problems.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

B.rad Rebroadcast: Dr. Tommy Wood And Sensible Healthy Living Suggestions

It’s time for a rebroadcast of Dr. Tommy Wood content! I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Tommy—he gives so much sensible, easy to understand health information, is an accomplished physician, researcher, and former head of the Ancestral Physicians Society—and in this episode, you will hear sensible and practical health tips from Dr. Tommy (as well as some of the science behind them) to help you optimize your sleep, stress management, diet, and exercise habits.  Enjoy the show!   TIMESTAMPS: This rebroadcast is with Dr. Tommy Wood who is an expert in Ancestral health. [00:46] Dr. Tommy’s current job is in research neonatal brain injury as well as studying the fact that 80 to 90 percent of Western population has the beginnings of metabolic disease. [05:35] The majority of people are aware of the information that is out there for better health practices, but just don’t do anything about it. [07:05] It is very difficult for people to make a change even when they know the facts. How can we initiate change toward a healthier population? [10:04] What have we learned from the extreme edge of the pursuit of optimal health? [14:06] When Brad was doing keto, he was fasting and realized he still wasn’t as fit as he wanted to be.  Tommy’s advise was to eat more food. [17:59] Caloric restriction does work in terms of longevity and across multiple species, but it is not universal. [24:23] If you are struggling to reduce excess body fat, advice is to get metabolically healthy first before restricting carbohydrates. [29:55] Do EMFs have a biological effect on our mitochondria? [32:20] Cell phone in your pocket lowers sperm count. [35:30] How does a person get motivated? [37:52] After a serious bite injury from a venomous snake, Tommy’s recovery took a long time. Months passed before he could get back to his fitness regimen. [39:34] When people take supplements in hopes of enhancing longevity, how do they know if it is making a difference? What do the blood tests really say? [46:09] About 80 percent of people in the US have at least one of the markers of metabolic syndrome. Testosterone levels vary with age and health issues. [52:32] The Carnivore premise makes a lot of sense but there are some questions that arise. [59:20] We have built an environment that completely removes our ability to adapt. [01:04:08] If you have no autoimmune or inflammatory conditions and want to optimize longevity, what kind of foods should you be looking for? [01:10:04] There is no right answer as to the diet. Everyone is different and basically the scientists cannot tell you. Just get off the junk food.  [01:16:30] Eat food that looks like food.

Brad Kearns: Brad's Blood Test Recommendations For Males Aging Gracefully

In this episode, I share my recommendations for blood testing for health, disease screening, and peak performance with particular relevance to fitness-minded males who want to age gracefully. Unfortunately, typical screening is just scratching the surface and there are many flawed and dated misconceptions about mainstream medical system blood screening and disease risk factors,  so I wanted to talk about which tests I recommend, counter some of the misconceptions and misinterpretations about this topic, and share commentary from highly respected ancestral health leaders like Dr. Cate Shanahan, Dr. Ron Sinha, Dr. Peter Attia, Dr. Paul Saladino, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, and Dr. Layne Norton. After listening to this show, you will come away with a better understanding of your test results and also with an understanding of how you can take more control of your blood testing. One way to accomplish this is by ordering tests directly and getting results via the Internet—I have done this myself for many years by testing my male hormone profiles frequently and tracking the results against my lifestyle practices (hint: overtraining tanks testosterone). Enjoy this episode, and feel free to share it with any cardiologist so he she can reply ‘who dis clown?’”   TIMESTAMPS: Brad has done much research on blood tests. His knowledge and personal experience, brings solid information we all should be aware of. [00:45] The blood test results you typically get from your doctor don’t go very far. [01:51] Any talk of your “good cholesterol is good” and your “bad cholesterol is bad”, is coming from someone who is 40 or 50 years behind the emerging research. [03:39] The triglycerides to HDL ratio is the single most important marker for heart disease. [05:31] There are some things to analyze on your own blood report. Ask for fasting blood insulin. And test your body composition for free. [12:14] As you age, it is important to focus on the sex hormone panels. Testosterone is an extremely important hormone. [19:20] Vitamin D technically is a hormone rather than a vitamin. It is important for cancer prevention. Learn about proper sun exposure. [27:04] Some other important tests are hemoglobin, hematocrit, and iron. High blood viscosity is a red flag.  [33:30] Fasting glucose and HB A1C levels can predict what your blood sugar is like. [37:19] A quick analysis of your waistline is to look at the waist to height ratio.  The waist in inches should be half of the height in inches. [41:20] Colonoscopy and mammograms are important but you need to beware about false positives and the stress they cause. Insist on thorough EKG. [43:20] Blood pressure is something you can monitor at home. There are many causes of high unhealthy blood pressure that can be handled by changes you can make.  [48:12] In summary, stay on top of your blood readings, especially if you are an active athlete. Testosterone is especially important as you age. [49:30] Brad talks about handling illnesses naturally rather than depending on prescription medications which mask the symptoms you are experiencing.

Breather: The Health And Performance Risks Of Overtraining

It may not be everyone’s favorite subject, but we’ve got to talk about overtraining because of how important it is to have a heightened awareness and pay constant attention to your stress/rest balance—otherwise you will make the same, all too common mistakes most people do and will plunge into the spirals of overreaching, overtraining, and full-blown burnout. An overly stressful approach unfortunately can and will compromise the many benefits of leading an active, energetic, fit lifestyle, and this is true even when the exerciser feels strong and energetic and makes quantifiable progress with fitness goals. Understanding the delicate nuances of the fight-or-flight response to exercise can help prevent overexertion in the first place. Gaining a complete understanding of the symptoms and imbalances associated with the temporary state of overreaching (the predecessor to overtraining) and full-blown overtraining can help coaches and athletes navigate these treacherous waters with aplomb.

Ato Boldon: The Journey From World Champion Sprinter To World Champion Broadcaster

I am so excited to introduce a unique and super interesting, lively, talkative guest—Ato Boldon! Track & Field fans will recognize Ato since he is one of the fastest humans of all time who competed in the Olympics back in the ‘90s representing Trinidad and Tobago (he also has eight global medals). After retiring from elite competition, Ato transitioned into an amazing and lengthy career in the broadcast booth and he has worked as the lead broadcaster for NBC Track & Field for 17 years. I am not kidding when I say I consider him to be the single best commentator in the world in any sport, and it was actually because of a Track & Field event I attended (the Diamond League Finals in Eugene, Oregon) that I was able to connect with Ato since I happened to bump into him on my flight! Thanks to that event, I was able to connect with him and interview him about his life and career: growing up in Trinidad and Tobago and later, New York and California, how he never lost a single race to another collegiate athlete, the injury and car accident that cut his athletic career short and how he transitioned into his second, still fulfilling career, the preparation and focus that goes into being a great broadcaster, coaching elite athletes and NFL players, and more!   TIMESTAMPS: Even if you are not a track and field fan, you will enjoy Ato Boldon, one of the world’s most accomplished athlete and sports broadcaster. [00:45] Ato has an interesting story to tell about his rise into the sport. [04:07] Some young athletes do not start out with the natural talent or physical features necessary to become champions. [08:34] It is difficult to know or see what potential there is in a young athlete. [12:24] Ato’s formative years as an athlete were in the US.  What would his story have been had he stayed in the Caribbean competing with those runners? [16:38] It is difficult to be a professional in the sport of track and field. The competition with the world’s best is important, even more so than the color of the medal. [20:41] Sports is about overcoming what life throws at us. [26:47] How do the athletes’ times from a generation ago compare with today’s? Shoe technology has much to do with the new records. [30:20] Usain Bolt has a reputation of being lazy in training rather than wisely resting more. What are Ato’s thoughts about Usain? [34:18] Seven Steps, Drive Phase, are examples of coaching on running form in 1995. [39:07] Ato’s career took a sudden turn after injuries sustained in an auto accident. He talks about learning to be a broadcaster. [41:32] What does the future schedule look like for Ato?

Breather: Lion Martinez - The World's Fastest Masters Sprinter

Listeners, you know how much I love to talk about sprinting and recommend adding sprinting (truly explosive, all-out, maximum efforts) to your training regimen for all the wonderful health, fitness, and longevity benefits that accrue—which is why it was such an extreme privilege to welcome Lion Martinez to the show. Lion happens to be the fastest human who has ever lived over the age of 45 and he has broken more than a few world records (such as a 10.72 world record in the masters 100 meters championship in 2023). He is dominating the sport right now, and also coaches a group of master sprinters and young, elite sprinters near his base in Stockholm, Sweden. Every person in his group has set personal best in successive years—not a surprise when you learn about his very scientific, methodical approach to sprint training.  The episode with Lion gets a little technical at times as we discussed some of the science of the energy systems and the parameters of training and recovery, but he did a wonderful job explaining this in a way everyone can understand, and all athletes and fitness enthusiasts will get a lot of value out of hearing some of these important principles—especially how to integrate explosive, high intensity workouts into your training regimen, and most especially, how to do them correctly so you don’t pull a hamstring or get injured!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel - The Best Protein on The Planet!

Jillian Turecki: How To Choose the Best Partner, Overcome Relationship Ruts, And Get Out Of Your Head To Achieve Relationship Breakthroughs

Relationship coach Jillian Turecki is here to share incredible advice to help you realize how you can choose the best partner for yourself, help you navigate your relationship, tips for getting out of relationships ruts, and more! Jillian has a gift for concise, pithy insights that can be life-changing (she has been a relationship coach for 20 years helping people transform their relationships with themselves), and in this episode, she explains why we all need discipline and curiosity, how we all can always control our own behavior, and the importance of transcending the urges of the primitive brain so you can start to become more self-aware and change your relationship patterns.  This is a great show to listen to if you’re relationship, but particularly if you are single and looking for a partner—Jillian will tell you how to break negative patterns in your relationships and avoid creating stories and getting into your head too far, why so many women often go for the Bad Boy and men often go for the Baby Bird, why resentment is the killer of relationships, and more helpful advice to help you navigate your relationships, whether you’re single or partnered up.    TIMESTAMPS: The mind is a battlefield, so we have to work hard and make a choice to do something different in life. [00:52] Most relationship problems stem from something that’s going on in our own life, like not being happy, fulfilled, satisfied, or your low self-esteem.  [05:23] We often end up telling stories about the person we are in a relationship with rather than learning good communication.  [08:07] How do we extricate ourselves from the pattern of assuming? What is the story I’m telling myself? [13:28] These problems are not part of a flawed childhood, it is just part of being human. [16:19] Everyone is in control of their behavior. [22:20] The two things that matter in a relationship is who you choose and who you show up as. [24:49] You want someone who embodies the qualities and the character traits that you need in order to function in a relationship.  [29:31] Why do some women go for the bad boy? [33:33] Some men are attracted to a woman who is a broken bird. Her vulnerability is what attracts. [39:16] In general people want to live their life with someone who loves them. [42:58] Do you have to love yourself before you can be in a relationship? [46:47] Sex complicates things.  Get to know someone on a profound level before you take it to sex and playing house with each other. [50:18] Men like to hunt and pursue women. The problem is they don’t understand what happens to the woman after he catches and beds her.

Lion Martinez: How To Sprint Correctly And Other Tips From The World's Fastest Human Over Age 45

I am so excited to introduce the fastest human who has ever lived on the planet over age 45—world record holder in Masters 100 meters, Lion Martinez from Stockholm, Sweden! Lion coaches a thriving group of other master sprinters and as you will soon hear in this show, has some novel and fascinating ideas on how to train for sprinting that destroys some of the misconceptions and notions we have misinterpreted about what it means to be a truly explosive athlete. You will learn important things like the natural and necessary tradeoff between training for endurance competency and training for true speed and explosiveness (newsflash: you can’t really do both), tidbits about the energy systems of the body and why we’re truly only capable of maintaining maxim explosive output for around 3.5 seconds (and can only maintain our top speed for 7-8 seconds), why sprinting is an art form, what happens when we exhaust the lactate pathways, how to improve your technique and become a master sprinter, and more!   TIMESTAMPS: This show from the world’s fastest man over age 45 will be invaluable for any and all fitness enthusiasts. [00:43] How do the times for today’s runners compare with the ancient Olympic records? [04:38] What has changed with technology and training and recovery? [06:39] The records in the Masters division have continually gone down. [09:30] What is Lion’s athletic background that got him to this point? [12:01] Competition is the beauty of the sport. [22:16] What is the training like now? [25:57] You can’t tell if you screwed up until you are further down the road. Recovery is very important. [29:38] There are different types of fatigue or energy systems. [32:48] Sprinting is unnatural for humans. The right technique is more complicated than just moving your legs. There’s a real science to it. [39:14] It seems the goal of getting faster by doing sprints that are shorter and taking more rest might be less physically stressful and less breakdown when you’re talking about a training pattern.

Brad: Why Breakfast Is Making A Comeback For Your Active, Energetic Lifestyle

“Breakfast is the important meal of the day,” according to decades-long conventional wisdom—however, this notion has been slammed in recent years along with the rise of the Ancestral health movement. But now, breakfast is coming back in style for many reasons—especially for healthy, active folks looking to pursue peak performance and avoid disease and delay aging. Listen to this episode to learn about the benefits of eating breakfast, why the morning hours are the most opportune time to consume calories, why certain people should still consider partaking in fasting for health benefits, why skipping breakfast or eating low-carb can be too stressful for certain people, how to treat an “energy toxicity” problem, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: Breakfast is making a comeback after being derided in the ancestral movement. [00:44] What is important is understanding how to consume the right foods for your activities during the day. [02:03] Consume fewer nutrient deficient calories because that is the main culprit causing metabolic function problems. [05:28] If you simply eliminate processed foods, you can’t get fat. (Lustig) [06:39] The idea that too many eggs will give you a heart attack has been disproven. [08:47] For many years, Brad would skip breakfast.  Now he has done a complete about face. [09:37] Fruit provides easy-to-digest calories, good all year around. [11:31] A large number of genes associated with energy utilization are under circadian control. [15:21] Break your fast in the morning emphasizing protein. A recent study showed that 78% of the people in the study who ate breakfast every day, lost weight and kept it off long-term. [19:58] Weigh yourself every day.  [23:15] It is easy to add excess body fat when eating non-nutritional processed foods. [26:24] Brad’s motto is: perform, recover, perform, recover. Don’t forget keto is a stress mechanism. [30:24] Brad talks about his recent fasting as a result of having COVID. [35:41] Make a concerted effort to consume the most nutritious foods.

Breather: The Primal Blueprint Laws 1-5 Overview

How about a quick overview of the 10 magnificent Primal Blueprint lifestyle laws? In this episode, you’ll hear an overview of the first five. The Primal Blueprint lifestyle was first introduced to the world by Mark Sisson back in 2005 on MarksDailyApple.com and then later in the best-selling book, 2009’s The Primal Blueprint, which is credited with kickstarting the Primal lifestyle movement, which is going strong today. Mark and I are so pleased to still see the book in the best-seller category, and still the best entry point of a comprehensive education on how to live an ancestral-inspired, long, healthy active life modeling and adapting the lifestyle behaviors of our hunter-gatherer homo sapiens ancestors into the reality of crazy, hectic modern life.

Vanessa Spina: Eating More Protein For More Muscle, Less Fat, And Better Cognitive Function

Please welcome Vanessa Spina, The Ketogenic Girl, host of the Optimal Protein podcast, and author of the best-seller Keto Essentials. In this show, Vanessa, a high-performing expert in keto diets (especially in her modified high-protein version) opens up about her personal health journey and answers all the questions you’ve ever had about the keto diet, including perhaps the most popular one: how can I safely and reliably reduce excess body fat, without starving and having long-term, adverse effects?  Vanessa also opens up about being a vegetarian, being a leader in the early days of the keto movement, what made her realize that further results could be had from increasing protein, why sustainably sourced protein can be such a life-changing transformation for some people, and all about her new whey protein supplement. Finally, we hear some interesting insights about parenting and prioritizing time during your children’s formative years from Vanessa, who lives in Prague with her husband and son (and has another baby on the way), as well as how to use the keto diet as a tool, and how to design a long-term sustainable diet program for yourself.   TIMESTAMPS: Vanessa has journeyed from being a vegetarian to an expert on the keto diet while including the importance of protein for weight loss.  [00:43] As a world traveler, Vanessa points out that we are all so similar, no matter where you go, we all want the similar things. [04:20] Not until she challenged herself to do high protein experiment, did she realize that her whole life, as a vegetarian, had resulted in her being under-muscled. [17:46] Are you being more sustainable when you don’t eat red meat? [20:15] When you consume a modified ketogenic diet with higher protein, you also get the appetite suppressing effects and satiety and the thermic effect of protein, which helps boost your metabolism as well. [26:26] What are the appetite suppressing effects when you’re making ketones? [31:02] The biggest issue with traditional ketogenic macros is it's not optimal for building muscle.  It seems that 1.6 grams to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram body weight is optimal. [36:51] Females in particular seem to have been brainwashed to avoid eggs and red meats. How has Vanessa influenced that population? [41:49] There is this concept of protein leverage where we will overeat on energy calories from carbs and fat until we get our protein needs met. [43:18] You can have a natural wholesome whole foods diet even when you have budget concerns. [51:53] Active athletes have a risk of under-fueling. It’s important to maintain stable blood sugar level.  [53:56]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean) Keto Essentials Optimal Protein Podcast Dr. Don Layman   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Breather: Dopamine - Learn The Difference Between Beneficial Pursuits And Health-Destructive Pursuits

Let’s talk about dopamine—specifically beneficial vs. health destructive dopamine pursuits. We hear about this wonderful chemical (often referred to as the reward chemical) all the time, but as you’ll learn in this show, the experts will tell you that it’s really the motivation chemical. When dopamine is released into your bloodstream, it motivates you to continue to pursue what is perceived as pleasurable and rewarding behaviors. But we have hijacked our body chemistry in modern life, and we no longer exist in the same kind of life-or-death circumstances of primal times, so now we can achieve pleasurable dopamine highs through the use of all kinds of adverse vehicles (like recreational drugs).  However, as you will hear in this breather show, there are ways to promote a sustained release of dopamine without that crash we’re all familiar with when we indulge in things that hijack brain chemistry. This is important because when you flood your dopamine pathways with instant gratification behaviors, you block the pathways that are intended for serotonin and oxytocin—however, when you persevere through challenging pursuits that align with your passion and purpose, you release dopamine, as well as other pleasure chemicals, that contribute to leading a rich, meaningful, hormone and neurotransmitter balanced life. I also talk about the importance of John Demartini’s concept of pursuing your “inspired purpose” to lead your best and richest life, what to do when your career is not yet aligned with your inspired purpose, how to recognize (and stop) the behaviors that create conflict within ourselves, why motivation is a flimsy source of productivity, and how to create a sustained release of dopamine.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brad Kearns and Dr. Joy Kong: Natural Testosterone Optimization (Syndicated From The Dr. Joy Kong Podcast)

“If it has a fragrance, it has estrogenic influences on your body.” In this episode syndicated from Joy Kong’s podcast, I share the wisdom I’ve gained from decades of pursuing high performance and supreme physical health, discuss my preferred methods for testosterone optimization (what to do and what not to do), and talk about the current diet landscape and how we can all obtain a better understanding of what is most suitable for our own specific needs when it comes to building a healthy lifestyle and maintaining healthy hormone levels!   TIMESTAMPS: When you get out of balance, it throws everything off and takes a lot of discipline to break free. [03:25] As Brad puts forth his information in the health and fitness space, he knows it is not coming from a PhD researcher, but rather the things he has learned and experienced in his own athletic career. [05:52] When you override the body's natural metabolic and hormonal functions with an outside agent, you are paying some kind of a price. [07:40] Having a beer belly or spare tire is so commonplace, people assume it is normal. To do anything about changing, get healthy first. [20:00] Our culture doesn’t have enough respect for sleep. [25:10] Our mobile devices play a big part in our insufficient rests. [33:49] How you acquire a spare tire, is mostly by eating processed food. Every restaurant uses seed oils. [36:44] What are the oils that are actually good for you? [42:28] Energy toxicity means you are consuming and storing too much energy and not burning enough. [50:06] Your love relationship is making or breaking your hormone status for both males and females. [52:52] Just moving every day is more important to your long-term health and longevity goals than adhering to a devoted fitness regimen. [01:08:51] Micro workouts are the biggest breakthrough in the fitness industry in decades. [01:13:51] Restrictive extreme diets or heavy-duty exercise programs are stressors requiring balance. [01:22:52] Both males and females need to pay heed to their testosterone levels. [01:31:32] Dad and grandpa had 40% higher levels of testosterone than the average guy now who's 26 or 36 or 46 or 56. The blame falls on the disruptive influences of the modern environment and the chemicals. [01:36:54] Get away from plastics in your food and drink. Anything with fragrance causes a disruption to your body. [01:41:24] There are different pathways to testosterone boosting.

Breather: Triathletes Have Better Self-Regulation Of Body And Brain

Did you know that athletes are not just better at regulating their physical bodies, but that they are also experts at regulating brain activity? In this breather show, I discuss a study from the Journal of Biological Psychology that uncovered differences in brain structure between athletes and non-athletes and share the study’s findings. You will hear about how regular exercise improves cognitive control and enhanced cognitive processes (like inhibition, attention, and concentration) are believed to help regular exercises self-regulate their physical activity, the structural differences the study found among the athletes brains, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Cynthia Thurlow: Recalibrating From Overly-Stressful Life to "Phase 2" Balance And Gratitude

I am so pleased to present this awesome show with my good friend Cynthia Thurlow, health personality, Everyday Wellness podcast host, and best-selling author! Cynthia is extremely open, honest, and vulnerable in this episode as she opens up about her life, her background, and her quest for health and happiness. She talks about overcoming flawed behavioral patterns formed in childhood, trauma (and the difference between Trauma and trauma), becoming a reformed people-pleaser, what sparked her awakening and caused her to completely change her overly-stressful life, what she learned from the life-threatening medical issue she dealt with, and more. Enjoy this memorable, sensational show with Cynthia Thurlow!   TIMESTAMPS: Today’s guest is a reformed people pleaser who has made a name for herself in all great aspects of health, balance, and happiness. Her message will impact you. [00:43] Many people with the best of intentions figure out that it's more than just what we're eating that you need to be in good health. [05:15] It often takes setbacks such as injuries to spur an awakening as to your over training. [12:08] Is there a personality attribute and a special calling to people to go into medicine? [16:36] After a busy stressful day working in the hospital, Cynthis overdid the other stressful things in her life. [23:25] Females are vulnerable to that package of restricting carbs and working out. [26:17] Is our penchant for overachieving part of the subconscious programming from our infancy? [31:37] Personality attributes like eternal positive and exuberance can be a crutch to not facing things. [39:35] If you don't deal with your stuff, it will find a way of forcing you to deal with it. [40:38] After experiencing a life-or-death situation, how did Cynthia’s emergence into the future play out? [55:44] You can work hard 24/7 but what message does that tell the family? If you can’t do it for yourself, think of the impact of what you do on others. [59:02] Your speech patterns, self-talk and your self-belief can have a tremendous impact on where you're headed.

Breather: Quick Tips For A Fantastic Evening Sleep (It Starts In The Morning)

There is so much to say about the centerpiece of all health aspirations and endeavors, sleep—everything flows downstream from getting an awesome night of sleep on a consistent basis. In this breather show, I share some of my favorite tips and tricks for ensuring that you get a full night of deep sleep. If you have problems falling asleep or would like to improve your sleep patterns or habits, this is the show for you—you’ll learn how direct light exposure is linked with sleep and why looking at a direct light source through some kind of glass (like a door) is not as effective as direct sun exposure, the types of exercise that can set you up for a good night of sleep, how to improve metabolic function to influence sleep quality, the importance of maximizing your exposure to natural light throughout the day, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. Grayson Wickham: Improving Mobility, Healing Injuries, And Being More Active Movement Vault

Dr. Grayson Wickham is here to help us learn how to stretch better, fix pain, and improve flexibility & mobility with the Movement Vault app. The topic of “mobility” is continually gaining more popularity, since having good or optimal joint mobility is key to preventing pain and injury, as well as improving performance in the gym, and in our daily activities. The fact is, most people are either not stretching or not using effective stretching techniques, and there is a lot of confusion around this topic due in part to false info and fitness “experts” echoing out-of-date knowledge. In this show, you will learn why everyone needs to start an effective stretching routine to improve joint mobility, why your genetics are not the cause of lower back pain, and how improving your active joint mobility will change your life forever. Dr. Grayson also reveals the best time to stretch, talks about why joint replacement surgery should be almost non-existent, and shares his top 5 active stretches that everyone should be doing and some practical posture tips.    TIMESTAMPS: There’s a difference between muscle weakness and muscle tightness. [00:44] If you stay in a hunched over position, like at the desk, for example, your body will adapt to that. [05:09] Many static or passive stretches are not as effective as active stretching and muscle activation exercises. [08:59] Active stretching is when we are stretching out a joint or a muscle, to its end range of motion, and then we're contracting those muscles actively while they're stretched out. [13:32] It is said that when you are put under anesthesia for surgery, you become super flexible. [17:16] Mobility is actually the flexibility of the muscle and mobility is more of the joint range of motion. [20:00] Is there an important harmony between your muscle strength and flexibility and your tendon strength and flexibility? [22:34] Grayson is a physical therapist and he says that 90% of the injuries that come into his clinic could have been avoided. [27:43] For body maintenance we do things like brush our teeth regularly.  What do we do for maintenance on your joints? [31:29] Humans are meant to move frequently during the day. [36:53] People who get super strong and build muscles possibly reduce flexibility. [45:31] When an athlete is dealing with nagging injuries, what are some solutions? [52:46] Stress and sleep are things to look at when you're injured or out of shape. [57:30] Movement Vault.com shows a better way to stretch, fix pain and injury. [01:00:09] Most of your physical complaints like back pain or knee pain, are not something you have inherited. You need to move.

Breather: Relationship Tips - The Real Issue Behind Dirty Dishes Driving Divorce

More relationship talk and tips in this show as I focus on the viral article, “My Wife Divorced Me Because I Left Dishes By The Sink” and how the day-to-day conflicts that exist in relationships (the conflicts one person usually thinks of as trivial) are destructive and harmful to relationships. As you will learn in this episode, when you are in a relationship, you have a choice: you can view doing things that enhance your partner’s life as a pleasurable thing to do, as things that bring you closer together, or you can view them as a chore you have to do. Other relationship tips shared in this show include advice about arguing (did you know that most couples waste time arguing about things that will never change?) and why examining your personality attributes and behavioral dispositions that are harder to change can help improve the health of your relationship. At the end of the day, you don’t have to understand why someone cares so much about a stupid glass—you just have to understand and respect that they do care about it.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Q&A: Increasing Carb Intake For Better Performance; Benefits of Electrolyte Drinks; Top 2 Tips For Lifestyle Transformation

Enjoy some thought-provoking questions and great success stories too. This edition of B.rad Q&A highlights my recent fascination with striving for optimal cellular energy status instead of fasting or carb restriction. Listeners weigh in as follows: distinction between processed carbs and nutritious carbs; benefits of increasing fruit intake; adding carbs for ultra-endurance training; do energy/electrolyte drinks hydrate better than water? What are a couple of simple starting point goals to try and get healthier? Could our ancestors have had year-round access to fruit and carbs for most of evolution? How can a teenager gain muscle in a healthy way (and is creatine okay?)   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Breather: Relationship Tips - Always Make The First Overture

In this breather show, I refer to a great article by Anthony Moore titled: “Why Most People Will Never Have Great Relationships” and the piece of advice he and his partner received from a counselor that ended up changing both their lives, which was to “always make the first move.” If there is anything you can do to help your relationship, do it—don’t wait for the other person to act (even if you don’t want to), and this episode will explain why this is important (hint: it has something to do with pride). Pride is actually one of the main killers of marriages, friendships, and even families, since most of us are so hesitant to start that initial conversation, send the first text, say “I miss you,” or apologize and ask for forgiveness, organize a hangout, say “thank you” or “I appreciate what you did.” But as you will hear in this show, the traits of successful, long-term romantic love relationships for 20+ years are empathy, emotional control, and choosing to overlook negative attributes and focus on positive attributes. Instead of focusing on what you don’t like or what isn’t working, follow John Gottman’s advice and make small bids for emotional connection throughout the day.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. Phil Mafffetone: Using Music To B Sharp, Manage Stress, And Save The World

In this episode, Dr. Phil joins me to talk about his book, B Sharp, Your Personal Journey To Expand The Mind, Enhance The Brain, And Age Well, which discusses how music influences our minds and bodies, particularly with exercise, such as our movement/gait, heart rate, the autonomic nervous system, faster recovery, and reduced cardiac stress. I also share my thoughts on the importance of music around exercise, but not during it when I’ve always recommended listening to your body instead. Of course, studies show music during exercise appears to promote various supposed benefits, but these are associated with stimulating sympathetic activity, raising your heart rate, and risking overtraining. (Plus, certain kinds of music can always be harmful.) We also talk about healthy aging—a major topic in Dr. Phil’s book.   TIMESTAMPS: Dr. Phil is the father of endurance training using the MAF heart rate as a guide. [00:49] Music influences exercise, heart rate, the autonomic nervous system, and can be used to speed recovery and reduce cardiac stress.  [02:19] How did Phil go from a renowned fitness training expert to songwriter and musician? [06:19] A very vivid dream led to Phil’s passion for song writing, leaving his coaching career behind.  [14:59] If we don’t have passions, it’s a problem. [29:15] Phil was a brain-injured child and struggled terribly in school. [30:52] How does music affect the brain? [33:18] There are benefits in using music for exercise but it is some type of music that Phil warns of. [38:22] They use artificial intelligence to create songs now.  AI is certainly involved in movies as well. [46:59] The brain keeps expanding and working better until we die. We need more nourishing music.  [50:49] Hip hop music can be controversial but the artist is expressing themself freely. [59:58] What are the dangers from music and exercise? [01:03:51] Music helps us be in the Alpha state which is a desirable state.

Breather: Relationship Tips - Emotional Self Stability as #1 Relationship Attribute

Inspired by some wonderful writing from Kris Gage on Medium, this episode focuses on why emotional self-stability is the #1 relationship attribute, and why without it, nothing else matters. If you ask people what “the key to making a relationship last” is, some of the most common answers you’ll get are: “communication”, “trust”, “respect”, but the truth is, these things are not the secret. Why? As you will learn in this show,  communicating does not exactly offer a solution to any problem that can pop up in relationships—it’s just lobbing it out into the space between two people, and if you don’t follow it up with something, it does nothing. The secret is actually emotional maturity and self stability—being kind, respectful, trustworthy, and honest. As my dad Walter Kearns said, “You have to try to be happy every day.”   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Mark Allen: Consistency Over Perfection, And Other Reflections On Endurance Training

I’m so pleased to welcome Mark Allen back to the show! Mark, aka “The Grip,” is also the greatest triathlete of all time, and he’s here today to share many of his unique insights and spiritual approach to grueling endurance sports. Mark, a contemporary of mine from the triathlon circuit, is now one of the most prominent coaches in the triathlon scene today. Get ready for a wide-ranging conversation that covers everything from Mark’s early racing days and the things he would do differently knowing what he knows now to the adjustments he had to make at the end of his career to doping in elite sports. As the conversation winds along, you’ll get to hear more of the spiritual side of Mark that he has become known for as he talks about the many years he has spent working with a Huichol healer and the retreats they put on together, as well as what he has learned from the time he has spent with other native Huichol people in Mexico. Even if you are not a triathlete, the insights you will get from this show can be applied to all our peak performance goals in life!   TIMESTAMPS: Mark Allen is one of the most prominent coaches in the triathlon circuit. What would he have done differently? [00:47] After the break from Covid, the competition has really been fired up. [05:43] This year in Kona, the women had their separate race on Thursday, while the men raced on Saturday. [08:02] Mark and Brad discuss doping in the profession. Shelby Houlihan got a bad deal. [12:51] Many athletes don’t understand the best way to recover. [15:56] How do you take that fitness and then continue to build it without burning yourself out? [21:05] What does overreaching mean? [24:17] The signs of exhaustion from overreaching are (1) Slowing down in your swimming and (2) having a hard time getting your heart rate up, even though you feel like you’re pushing really hard, and (3) You can be out for a run and get full of lactate.  [29:25] What is different that the guys now are breaking 8 hours in the Ironman? [31:34] If Mark could do something different, what changes would he make? [41:59] One of Mark’s training ideas was actually training his mind to deal with boredom.  [48:13] If the aspect of recovery had progressed as much as the aspects of training, we’d see more amazing results. [51:03] Are we still battling the influence of the ego or the constraints of technology? [57:10] In today’s world there is no downtime with social media. [01:03:55] Since Mark’s last big race in 1995, what has his fitness journey been?  Without consistency, as you age, your body falls off quickly. [01:06:58] Anybody out there who is not exercising at all or as much as they want, you know it doesn’t feel good.  Be consistent with your exercise. Don’t back off. [01:16:20] Mark spends time among the primitive population of Huichol Indians in Central Mexico, and has learned a whole new way of living.

Breather: Are Carbs Cool Again? Part 2 - Ditch Junk Food, Emphasize Nutritious Carbs

In part two of this two-part series on carbs, we continue to examine carbohydrates from a bigger picture perspective, such as why and how low-carb and keto became popular, including why benefits occur with these restriction diets. We talk about why ANY diet is essentially a gimmick and why things like primal/ paleo/ keto work, but why their success is not synonymous with eating fewer carbs. As you will hear, these are indirect benefits from carb restriction, and we all discuss the idea that carbs are not inherently evil, as the carb-insulin model of obesity is now being debunked as oversimplified. It’s true that hyperinsulinemia is the pre-eminent health problem of modern life, but since seed oils are now blamed as the main culprit for insulin resistance, it’s hardly useful to put the blame on carbs. Seed oils interfere with fat burning and thus prompt problems with appetite, satiety, and increased dependence on more processed foods, since your internal energy gets all screwed up because of how toxic and oxidized seeds oils are. They cause immediate disturbance in healthy artery function. In contrast, all carbs are converted into glucose and burned for energy in the cell. Listen to this episode if you want to learn why fruit is king (as well as honey and fermented foods) and the importance of enjoying natural carbs, natural, nutritious fats so your appetite and satiety hormones can naturally regulate.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Q&A: More Carbs Boost Testosterone, Stop Counting Macros, Is Fasting Bad For Fit People?

We’re digging into the mail bag this week and answering some listener questions today—thanks to all of you who keep sending in such thoughtful comments and inquiries. We start with a great question from longtime listener Jay, who wants to know if I’ve noticed any changes in my blood work since adding more carbs back into my diet (I have!), and then I answer other concerns from listeners such as: what happens when you stop counting macros, my thoughts on the effects of fasting on fit people and the physical symptoms I’ve started to notice on days where I don’t eat enough calories in the morning, what people really mean when they say they’re sensitive to carbs, my views on total testosterone versus free testosterone, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Breather: Are Carbs Cool Again? Part 1 - Distinguishing Between Processed Carbs And Nutritious Carbs

While carbs have been demonized (and rightfully so) by the ancestral health movement since humans, in general, eat too much processed food and grain-based snacks and meals, it’s time to look at the bigger picture when it comes to nutrition and talk about the role natural, nutritious carbs play in a healthy diet. As you will hear in this episode, carbs are a centerpiece of a diet geared towards peak performance energy and micronutrients, and it’s important we clarify the difference between avoiding all carbs and avoiding processed, nutrient deficient carbs. If you have been avoiding carbs or wanting to increase your carb consumption, this is the episode for you—we talk about which plant foods offer the most nutrient density, the importance of consuming fresh fruit, honey, and fermented foods, and the specific plant foods and carbs that can pose the most digestive problems for people. Visit BradKearns.com and download the Carnivore Scores Food Rankings Chart to navigate to the easy to digest, nutrient-dense carbs instead of blindly following a plant-based diet instead.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Tara Garrison: Overcoming Past Trauma With Gratitude, Appreciating The Journey, And Checkin' Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

I welcome my old friend Tara Garrison to the show to have an inspiring discussion about her incredible weight loss and health journey, her unique and challenging experience growing up (she struggled with her weight, her parents struggled financially, and she grew up in a dysfunctional family that was also in a cult), and the health retreats she leads. Tara, a health and fitness coach, has such an interesting story and perspective, and she shares so much during this conversation that will motivate and inspire you to make positive changes in your life, no matter what circumstances you are currently facing. Tara talks about how she changed her body, her health, and her mindset, shares how she gained self-awareness, self-worth, and confidence despite her difficult early circumstances, explains why she sees being overwhelmed as symptomatic of carrying a victim mindset, and more!    TIMESTAMPS: Even though she was an overweight child, Tara ran marathons. She tells her story of evolving into a health and fitness coach from a stifling religious childhood.  [01:18] She went from 40 percent body weight to 11 percent when she became obsessed with fitness and changed her nutrition [03:48] Some people fall on the spectrum of proving that they are good enough through how their body looks. [09:23] There are all these things that come into our life, but owning our reactions, our thoughts, our behaviors, our response to those things, that's all we can really control. [10:54] Once you know your worth, then you actually start to contribute from a place of alignment.  [16:30] It is a form of being selfish when you are just giving and giving and running yourself ragged. [21:13] Did her distancing herself from the cult and dysfunctional family give her more ability to develop self-awareness? [28:49] When Tara slips from her self-confident position, what does she do to recalibrate? [35:55] What Tara began to change her diet, she used keto. [41:15] How was she able to qualify for running Boston?  Muscles store carbs.  It is easier to stay thin if you have more storage tanks. [47:06] In the process of getting fit, you learn to respect your body and regulate your hunger and satiety.  [51:00] There is a lot of stress for women as they are expected to be all things to all people. It is so easy to overdo as you try to prove something. [53:32] We should check in with ourselves every day because it is so easy to be overwhelmed and not realize it until the stress takes its toll. [01:00:30] What are Tara’s retreats like?

Breather: The Evolving Philosophy Of Eat More, Move More

A year and a half ago, I began an experiment and decided to make a deliberate attempt to do away with the restrictive dietary practices that I had adhered to (or dabbled in) in the past, such as keto and fasting. Instead, I started striving for maximum cellular energy status by increasing my intake of nutritious foods, and switching out my morning fasting protocol for a huge bowl of fruit and a high protein smoothie with my Superfuel protein supplement. In this show, I highlight some of the work and evolving attitudes from people in the Ancestral health space, and share compelling quotes from Dr. Tommy Wood and Jay Feldman, who both have really prompted me to rethink and reflect on some of the major messages that have framed the popularity of restrictive diets. If you have been reconsidering the role restrictive dietary strategies play in your life, you don’t want to miss this episode!   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brian Keane: "What Would You Do For Free?" Life Lessons, Fat Loss, And Endurance For Personal Growth

I’m bringing you a lively conversation with Brian Keane today, host of the Brian Keane Podcast, author of two best-selling books, The Fitness Mindset and Rewire Your Mindset, and a former teacher turned one of the top online fitness coaches in Ireland and the UK, who has transformed thousands of lives and physiques in the process.  In this show, we talk about how our mindset often gets in the way of our best-laid plans and goals, especially to drop excess body fat (Brian’s expertise). You’ll hear about Brian’s amazing journey, which includes some phenomenal endurance performances and a variety of athletic experiences like bodybuilding, Crossfit, and Gaelic football, why Brian decided to become an extreme endurance athlete, a bunch of practical tips to help you get your mindset right, and all the tools and systems you need to succeed with fat reduction. We then end the show with three wonderful tips from Brian to help you get started right away in any area you may have struggled with in the past. Check out Brian’s podcast (linked below), and his books The Fitness Mindset, which teaches you how to find the foods that work best for you and how to eat to increase energy, lose fat and build lean muscle, and build the body you’ve always wanted, and Rewire Your Mindset, which teaches you how to own your thoughts, control your thoughts, and change your life.    TIMESTAMPS: Brian tells his story of getting involved in sports after realizing he didn’t want to be in the career he had prepared for.  You are not a tree.  You can move wherever you want. [02:00] His very first event was the Marathon des Sables, probably the world’s toughest race. [08:23] Brian ran a race to the Arctic Circle.  What was the course and the logistics of the race? It was 230 Km over five days. [16:25] How did he get his mindset in the right place to take on such a big challenge as the Marathon des Sables? [21:32] Does Brian think that though he is capable of such high achievements, it makes him more prone to these deep struggles that come even when he’s outwardly successful as opposed to someone who's just steady going and maybe they have a rough day? [25:19] For your guide in life, ask yourself: “What would you do for free?” [29:30] How does one’s mindset influence one’s fitness goals? [31:24] When you become metabolically flexible, you are less likely to be a slave to food.  [37:17] Disordered eating makes you feel sometimes like you are handcuffed to food. [39:19] Brian is sure that his becoming keto-adapted and fat adapted delivered performance benefits in his ultramarathons. Your body cannot digest food if the blood is going to fuel the muscles. [43:22] Health, wellness, and fitness is a trifecta of nutrition, training and sleep. [48:54] Sleep tends to get pushed aside a lot.  People just don’t understand how very important it is. [51:58] Using social media keeps you accountable. You need to be real and authentic.  [57:02] What are three or four tips one can implement right away to make a dent in their challenge with their body fat reduction?

Breather: Rethinking Restrictive Diets For Active, Fit People

If you have been rethinking restrictive dietary strategies (such as restricting the time you eat with intermittent fasting, restricting calories, and restricting macronutrients like with carbohydrates or ketogenic diets) or wondering why I have been rethinking restrictive diets in recent times, this is the episode for you. As you’ll hear, in 2022 I began a big experiment and started swapping out my typical morning fasting period, which I had been adhering to for at least a dozen years, for something entirely different, since the idea that fasting = metabolic benefits is now being reconsidered among the healthy, active, fit population. Tune in to this breather episode to learn why my new mantra is perform, recover, perform, recover, and why I deliberately ceased my fasting practice and now start my day with a giant bowl of fruit and a high-protein, energy dense smoothie instead.   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Susan Bratton: The Sexpert Lets It Fly - Hang On For The Ride And Transform Your Sex And Life!

Get ready for one of the most unique, high-energy, and straight-talking guests we’ve ever had—Susan Bratton, an expert on all aspects of sexual wellness, sexual intimacy, and sexual regeneration! We’re going deep into a variety of topics at a fast pace, so fasten your seat belts and open your mind to this very refreshing guest. Susan brings the heat with straight talk on stuff that we are typically too embarrassed, shy, or shameful to talk about directly. It's time to open the floodgates and Susan is the perfect woman for the job.  The topics we’re talking about today can truly revitalize your relationship and overall life, vitality, and energy in general. Susan is an incredible resource who has written 34 books and programs, with tons of free offerings to help you improve your sex life in every way: lovemaking techniques, bedroom communication skills, and sexual vitality advice that includes Sexual Soulmates, Relationship Magic, Revive Her Drive, Ravish Him, The Steamy Sex Ed™ Video Collection, Hormone Balancing, The Pump Guide (to help males enhance sexual function), and more! You will hear tons of practical tips on how to elevate your game in the bedroom, especially when she talks about the conflict between male and female preferences in arousal styles, as well as effective methods for sexual wellness, biohacking, and regenerative medicine to regain function in areas most of us assume just fizzle out and diminish with age. Susan even confides that she, at age 61, is having the best sex of her life so she definitely knows what she’s talking about! You will learn, laugh, and may even learn how to save your relationship if it’s on the brink in this episode—enjoy!   TIMESTAMPS: Our culture is very uptight, in general, about sexuality. Susan talks about how to enhance your sexual life, even as we age. [00:46] There is often a mismatch in libido in a relationship. Men’s arousal is differently timed than the woman’s. [07:15] The woman needs to be relaxed and it takes her 20 to 30 minutes to get aroused. [11:09] Does working on the sex part of the coupling lead to a healthier relationship in other areas of communication? [17:39] It is important for the male to understand the emotional and physical “mechanics” of his female partner. [22:35] Women are responsive. Men are spontaneous. [25:44] You can keep your genitals in good working order your whole life. [30:19] Susan got into this field of study because of her marriage turning sour in that area. [35:44] Repair and regeneration are available in many different ways. [42:06] Is libido dependent upon psychological factors, rather than the physical aspects? [48:36] Susan maintains her health by using a Vasper machine. [50:31] If you keep the body temperature stable, you can perform vastly more work. [56:23] The communication in the bedroom improves when you can eliminate the hesitation, shame and guilt you have been carrying. [58:32] How does pornography and masturbation fit into this sexual communication? [01:06:40] What about frequency? [01:13:33] Libido equals health.

Breather: Quick Reminders For Healthy Relationship Dynamics (Gottman And Others)

This breather show is on one of my favorite subjects, tips for happy love relationships, and is dedicated to the idea that you can never hear this stuff too much, which is why constant reminders can be so helpful for relationship health—especially as we try to navigate hectic, high stress modern life.

Tune into this breather show to hear some of my favorite tips for healthy relationship dynamics from experts like John Gottman and John Gray, such as “turning towards bids” instead of away from them (and what “bids” are in relationships), the importance of facing challenges and conflicts as a team, how to avoid getting into negative sentiment override, and more!   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Mark England: Escaping Your Victim Stories By Rethinking Your Thinking, Words, And Breath

In this episode, I speak with Mark England of the “Enlifted Method”—a coaching system that will help you shed any victim stories you have through the very careful and thoughtful process that Mark has been teaching to people for many years (you can learn more about it on his website, enlifted.me). The show starts with Mark sharing his own story as he explains how important words, story, and breath are to helping us disengage and do some more productive thinking about the way we think. This is such an interesting premise that we’ve discussed on the show before—how much our past programming and traumas (both large and small) can affect and compromise our ability to enjoy and be productive in everyday life. You will love Mark’s engaging and casual storytelling style, and the conversation gets pretty deep as we talk about the things that keep us stuck in life—after listening to this episode, you will never again be cavalier about the words you use to describe your own life and the things that have happened to you.  As you will hear, it’s not about what happened to you—it’s about what you think has happened to you that makes the biggest difference.    TIMESTAMPS: It is not what happened to you, it’s what you think about what happened to you. [00:43] Sometimes when you repeat the story of your experience several times, it begins to change course. [06:42] The organization teaches people the power of their words. People who come to them are most interested in learning about the victim mentality and goal setting. [13:01] The definition of the victim mentality is an acquired personality trait where a person tends to regard himself or herself as the victim of the negative actions of others. Even in the absence of clear evidence. [15:29] It’s easy to see the worst in people and take things personally when your breath is trapped in your chest. [16:40] Why is breath so integral to your process? [23:29] Until you get into the story, it is really hard to get out. [28:51] Most of us have a recurring theme from unprocessed childhood trauma that plays out for the rest of our lives. [34:52] Does this method run afoul of traditional psychotherapy and counseling? [41:55] Self-deprecating internal dialog can be examined by writing it down, and read aloud several times. [44:09] The more emotional one is about their story, the more attached they are to how the words are put together.  [47:29] Breathing is an important part of this training. [48:55] What people take this Enlifted Method Workshop that Mark teaches? [54:20] After listening to this show, what can a listener do to understand this process?

Breather: Scientific Research Validating The Benefits Of Micro-Workouts

You have heard me talk about micro workouts frequently—I have called them the greatest breakthrough in the fitness industry in decades—so I am very excited about the acceptance of demystifying and decomplexifying the act of performing a workout and making it accessible and convenient for anyone, at any time, to engage in brief bouts of physical effort that have so many wonderful health and fitness attributes.  In this episode, I talk about the research that is now backing up my excitement about micro-workouts, confirming it is indeed a highly effective strategy for health, fitness, and disease prevention, as well as a wonderfully refreshing evolution in the fitness industry, which is by and large, fraught with programming that is too complex, overly stressful, and exhausting to many participants—I’m referring to the offerings at fitness facilities, the protocol delivered by most personal trainers, and the group exercise programs where people train for extremely grueling endurance events and push themselves too hard. While this is certainly better than sitting at home and not moving, there does seem to be a pretty pervasive all-or-nothing approach to fitness, and this is where micro-workouts come in. As you will learn in this episode, there are many reasons why micro-workouts (or exercise snacks as one study calls them) have been scientifically validated to have such incredible benefits, and even sprints as short as four seconds long have been proven to have a surprisingly potent effect on the body.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Q&A: Optimizing Protein On TMAD, Eating 10 Eggs A Day!; Ideal Sprinting Work:Rest Ratio; Best Time Of Day To Train; Cold Plunge - How Often?

Welcome to another Q&A show! In today’s episode, we hear from a listener who wants to know if they can get enough protein to build muscle when eating only two meals a day, talk about fiber and constipation, healing plantar fasciitis, and the ideal effort to rest ratio when sprinting. I also answer questions about my morning exercise routine, timing workouts with your circadian rhythm and what the best time to train is, and what I’m eating these days. Finally, I answer a few questions about cold plunges and advise a high school track and cross-country coach on how to integrate ancestral principles into his coaching method. Thanks for listening and please do continue to send in your thoughtful questions and comments—they are always so insightful and helpful to hear.   TIMESTAMPS: Jenny asks: Can you get enough protein when following the Two Meals a Day pattern? [04:00] Recommended Daily Allowance or RDA is recommended for survival, NOT peak performance.  A good way of figuring out is to consume a gram of protein per pound of your ideal body weight. [09:08] John asks: How do you minimize fiber and not get constipated? [14:07] Ellen writes how she helped her plantar fasciitis by using Brad’s YouTube about stretching. [18:55] Limiting your high intensity sprint efforts to a maximum of 20 seconds, and then taking an extensive recovery is recommended. [20:59] How does one’s circadian rhythm affect exercise? The best time to exercise is when you prefer to exercise. [24:47] Mike is asking five questions regarding Brad’s morning exercise routine. How does Brad recover after his morning routine and what does Brad eat? [27:25] Brendan is a high school track and cross-country coach. He wants to know how he can integrate the ancestral health principles into his coaching method. [43:25] Douglas wants to know how often and when does Brad do his cold plunge and for how long? Another question is about comparing the diet his doctor recommends and the science behind what Brad talks about. Nutrient deficient, toxic processed foods are the drivers of heart disease,  not red meat, dairy and saturated fats. [48:38] Find a health care provider who is well-versed in nutritional science.  Some medical schools fall short in offering current information.

Breather: Social Fitness Is The Key To Human Happiness (Harvard Study)

I want to talk about an 85 year long study about what makes for a long, happy, and successful life. Researchers at Harvard University began this study in 1938 and focused on 724 participants around the world, who they checked in with every two years to ask detailed questions about their lives. What they discovered was that the key to human happiness had nothing to do with career, achievements, money, exercise, fitness, or a healthy diet, but something else—something that has been proven to keep us happier, healthier, and help us live longer. If you want to learn about the key to human happiness, this is the episode for you—you will learn all about social fitness, why it is so important, the role positive relationships play in our lives, why some relationships do have expiration dates, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. Judd Brandeis: Seeing Men's Health Through The Lens Of The P*nis

Get ready for a fantastically entertaining and informative show with Dr. Judd Brandeis of the Brandeis MD Male Rejuvenation Center in San Ramon, California. One very important point you will hear Dr. Judd make is how easy it is for us to go to the doctor when we have an issue with any other body part and identify exactly what’s going on, but when it comes to male performance, there can be a lot of anxiety, shame, humiliation, and attachment to ego involved. It’s time to talk about it though, especially in a way that feels comfortable to address, and in this episode, you will learn about men’s health and performance from a true expert. You will hear Dr. Judd’s opinion on using pills to enhance performance, learn why your erectile health is a strong red flag for your overall physical health, hear about my experience at Dr. Judd’s clinic, and so much more!   TIMESTAMPS: Dr. Brandeis’s specialty is a holistic approach to men’s sexual health. [01:33] Cialis and Viagra are very good drugs doing more than you think. [04:38] Chronic inflammation is bad, Acute inflammation is what our bodies use to heal and rebuild tissue. [07:53. The GAINSWave procedure breaks up plaque formation in blood vessels and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. [09:11] Every time you are in REM sleep, and you start to dream, you should be getting an erection. [12:23] The reason you don’t get an erection could be that your blood vessels are getting clogged. [14:07] If there is trouble in the bedroom, ten years down the road you might have heart problems.  [17:05] This is a very sensitive topic for men to talk about.  It is kind of a sense of self, sense of manliness. [20:36] If you don't take good care of yourself in your twenties and thirties and forties, in the fifties and sixties and seventies, you're gonna pay the price. [25:05] The Emnsculpt is a machine that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves to sculpt the body. [30:38] The Vo2 max test is the most sensitive indicator of someone’s cardiovascular health. [39:15] There can be some men who come for help whose vascular health and ultra sound look good but who have unsatisfying sexual function. [46:51] It's literally a function of blood flow whether we get an erection. [50:59] One important chapter in the book is what men need to know about menopause. [53:32] There are some things one can do to help with premature ejaculation. {56:21]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean) Brandeis MD Clinic GAINSWave 21stCenturyMan.com   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Breather: Brad's Insights From Nutrisense CGM Journey

I share my observations from my experience using the Nutrisense Continuous Glucose Monitor in this breather show, as well as the important attributes to look for when you’re doing continuous glucose monitoring. I have been working with these guys for several years now (since their initial launch) and it has been so cool to watch this technology rise in popularity over the years. In my opinion, a CGM journey is a bucket list item for virtually anybody—and while you don’t need to be extreme, doing even just a single course of putting the CGM for two weeks can give you enough important information that will tee you up for good behavior habits for the rest of your life. This episode will get you better acquainted with the process of using a CGM as I talk about everything I have learned from my experience using one (such as what I noticed on days I stayed up past my usual bedtime)—if you have been wanting to start using a continuous glucose monitor but haven’t known how to start or what to expect or look for, this is the episode for you.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brad: Optimizing Your Animal-Based Diet, Part 5

Welcome to the fifth and final show in this series about optimizing your animal-based diet! In the last episode of the series, we continue to discuss the importance of emphasizing nutrient-dense foods, this time turning the focus to plants—specifically the ones containing the lowest amount of toxins, such as avocado, honey, fruit, and a few other plant foods (as you will hear in the show). Even if you are committed to eating mostly animal-based foods, there are still quite a few, very nutritious plants that will make a positive contribution to your diet—tune into this episode to learn why, and the most nutrient-dense plant foods you’ll want to add to your diet!   TIMESTAMPS: In this episode of optimizing your diet, you want to emphasize the lower toxic plants. [01:58] Dark chocolate is one of the most nutritious superfoods with many benefits, but it is important to learn how to select the best.  [03:05] Fermented foods are widely regarded as supremely healthy. [16:46] The toxins in vegetables can be greatly, significantly neutralized through things like cooking, soaking, sprouting, and fermenting. [23:18] Raw honey is a great energy source. It’s easy to digest, and it’s quick. [28:09] Nuts and nut butters are super nutritious. [30:26] Seaweed is a centerpiece of the ancestral diet. It is a great source of iodine. When selecting seaweed products, make sure it hasn’t been processed in seed oil. [33:26] Sweet potatoes and squash are an easy-to-digest nutritious source of carbohydrates, high antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune boosting properties, good for gut health [34:32] Learn how to navigate the oils and fats in your purchased foods and those you cook with. Get fresh first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. [36:45] Do I need to supplement if I eat a healthy diet? Absolutely not. But….[43:18] Vitamin D is more important than most people realize and many are not getting enough. [51:55]  Beverages that are recommended are bottled mineral water and kombucha.

Maria Emmerich: Using Keto And Fasting As Tools For Fat Loss And Even Cancer Fighting

What a pleasure to introduce one of the true pioneers of the Paleo/Keto/Ancestral health movement—Maria Emmerich! Maria opens up about her story, which started 25 years ago at age 16 (truly one of the first to follow a ketogenic diet), sharing how she cured some tremendous health problems she had as a teenager, how this led to her writing numerous best-selling books, and her most recent book, Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism. Maria currently conducts keto-inspired retreats around the world, and in this episode, we get into how you can utilize keto and fasting as a tool for lifestyle transformation and improving your health, as well as how active, energetic people with good metabolic health can still adapt these strategies to work best for their needs. We also talk about careers—Maria takes us back to the time when she and her husband both hit a bottom in their professional lives and illuminates how you can turn a corner, build a following, and become a leader in your field. Finally, Maria shares the inspiring story of how she realized a true dream of hers (adopting children) and the steps it took to realize that dream.  TIMESTAMPS: As a teenager, Maria discovered Keto and managed her health problems. [00:44] Twenty-six years ago, her vet asked questions about her dog’s diet and she realized that her personal physician, who was handling her several health problems, asked nothing about what she was feeding herself. Maria started on Keto. [03:22] There are many people who look healthy to us but actually have Type 2 Diabetes. Dr. Maffetone says 91% of the modern world is over-fat. [11:17] Food addiction is like alcohol or drug addiction except it is more difficult to give up because we still need food.  [14:01] Maria went to Ethiopia to adopt her children. [19:42] What are some of the problems with things in the dairy category? [24:21] There could be a problem with people consuming enough protein in general. [28:26] What are the risks of extreme restrictive diets? [29:55] Do you have to choose carbohydrates or fat? It is an individual decision. [31:46] How has fasting played a role in her journey? [36:29] There is a clinic in Hungary where they treat cancer with a ketogenic diet. [37:22] Sometimes fat can be a protective mechanism. [43:28] Maria does Keto retreats in Europe and all over the world.

Dr. Luella Jonk: Relationship Insights Inspired By John Gray

I’m joined by the very interesting Dr. Luella Jonk—a psychotherapist and a functional medicine practitioner from Canada who is also a long-time listener of the show—to have a conversation all about relationships. You will hear us discuss John Gray’s essential relationship assignments as well as many other relationship insights—we talk about why we are obligated to take care of ourselves first before getting into relationships, why anxiety is so prevalent these days, the cost of trying to control other people and outcomes, the difference between mental health care in North America and in Western Europe, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: We are obligated to take care of ourselves first. [01:56] It is important to understand how much your physical health affects your mental health. [07:12] Most of the couples seeking therapy, say the number one problem is communicating with each other. [15:23] Women’ roles have become more confused as they move from home responsibilities into the corporate world where they may be competing with their masculine energy. [17:20] Men’s role is to listen and not give advice when the woman needs to transition from the workplace to the home. [21:47] The modern male is charged with being all things to all people. John Gray says men should stay calm, cool, and collected. Choice of words, tone of voice, and body language play a big role. [24:54] You cannot control anyone or anything. There’s a lot of self-love that can be practiced. You are going to be all right. [37:28] Luella believes that North America is not doing as well with mental health care as perhaps western Europe.  [41:10] Why is anxiety so prevalent these days? [46:01] Lead with love rather than fear. [54:00]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now available in Cocoa Bean flavor!)

Breather: The Spare Tire Scoreboard For Sex Hormone Optimization

Did you know that belly fat is actually classified as a separate organ because of its ability to secrete inflammatory cytokine chemicals into your bloodstream? If you’re looking for easy and effective ways of improving your health and optimizing testosterone naturally, this breather show is the perfect episode for you: you’ll receive a quick overview of testosterone-boosting tips so you get baseline knowledge and awareness of the essential things that help you boost testosterone naturally, and most importantly, you will learn about the specific effects that having a “spare tire”—meaning an accumulation of visceral excess fat around your midsection—has on your health and your sex hormone status. And for my female listeners—don’t forget that this show is for you too! While the topic of boosting testosterone is usually most appealing to my male listeners, this is also a very important topic for women as well, since low testosterone in women shows up in symptoms like malaise, poor cognitive function, and low libido.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel (Now Available in Cocoa Bean)   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. Erik Korem: How The Average Person Can Train Like An Elite Athlete

Get ready for a very interesting and dynamic guest, Dr. Erik Korem, the founder and CEO of AIM7 and host of The Blueprint. I apologize for the somewhat abrupt start to the show—we were getting to know each other offline and started to get into some pretty serious and fun topics, so I began recording as our conversation was starting to take off. As you will hear, Dr. Erik is a man of many interests, with many different skills and areas of expertise, and in this episode, you will learn about his company AIM7, and the technology that helps guide you to smart lifestyle decisions by calculating where you stand in terms of stress levels, sleep quality, and workout performance and recovery. I am usually a skeptic/generally disinterested in wearable technology and biofeedback devices, but when you’re talking about technology that helps you tap into your intuition better, that’s an entirely different story, and one that I am very interested in. You will also learn about the brain’s natural detoxification system, brain health and why we need to prioritize sleep to protect against the alarming rising rates of cognitive decline, and why social isolation poses equal, or perhaps even more severe risks to health than smoking.   LINKS: Erik Korem.com Dr. Erik Korem on Instagram Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

This very important breather show is all about testing and tracking your heart disease risk as we cover the most compelling and progressive thinking that has been happening around this topic currently—an important thing to do as we extricate ourselves from decades-old dogma that has now been shown to be incomplete, flawed, and dated conjecture. You will hear about scientific research that proves why old ideas like the “lipid hypothesis” of heart disease are incorrect, the truth about what consuming dietary cholesterol does to your body, the true cause of heart disease, the link between metabolic syndrome and heart health, why measuring your waistline can be an important indicator of heart disease, and more!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Tyler Dawley: Raising Better Chicken, And Saving The Planet With Regenerating Farming

It’s time to take a trip with me out to the ranch! That’s right, you will be hearing from a real-life rancher today—Tyler Dawley of the Big Bluff Ranch in Red Bluff, California. Red Bluff is a couple of hours north of Sacramento, so if you’re ever driving by it on a road trip, you’ve got to check it out—I have tried his incredible quality chicken myself and you can truly taste the difference.  In this episode, you will receive a fast-moving, basic education on numerous aspects of regenerative farming—an area that a lot of us are minimally aware of in terms of what goes on behind the scenes to create the food we get at the grocery store. We talk about green-washing and why that is such a problem, the industrial farming complex and feedlot animals, comparing and contrasting it with operations that farm “Mother Nature-style” as Tyler calls it, which actually have a positive effect on the environment by sequestering carbon. Tyler also gives some practical tips for how we can all commit to doing better in terms of our shopping habits, such as going to your local farmer’s market and forming relationships with local farmers and the food they grow.   TIMESTAMPS: We are learning about numerous aspects of regenerative farming. [00:45] The history of Big Bluff Ranch goes back to the 1950s. [04:28] Knowing the way cows digest their food, helps the farmer understand the care of his land.  [14:11] Tyler explains how the feedlot’s misuse of the land compares with the farms that understand the sustainable management of their acreage. [19:35] The methane emission that we hear so much about is the result of the cow’s processed food diet as opposed to the natural diet they get on the range. [21:28] When the consumer votes with their dollar by buying grass-fed meat and organically-raised chickens, the big companies will begin to take notice and quit supplementing with the wrong food.  Your vote counts! [24:35] Mother Nature didn’t need chemicals to grow grass. [27:34] Are we on a time clock now because of the abuse of our land? [33:39] A farmer can learn to keep water in a creek flowing year-round even if the it appears to run dry. [39:31] How can we, the consumer, navigate some of the terminology we encounter in the supermarket or Farmer’s Market? “Greenwashing” is a term that means not changing what you are doing but putting a new “green” label on an item. [42:41] Grass-fed, grass-finished is the gold standard. Be careful for the grain-finished label. [44:25] Free range is not what you think it is. Chickens are not supposed to eat a vegetarian diet. [46:51] What exactly does pasture-raised chicken mean? [51:49] What should the animals eat compared to what many of the are getting fed? What should California be producing?  [01:01:44]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel Big Bluff Ranch.com Big Bluff Ranch Giveaway Gabe Brown’s Ranch Allan Savory Animal Welfare Approved Eat Wild.com   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Did you know that your testosterone status is highly sensitive to relationship dynamics?

You will learn how being in a successful, exciting, and healthy romantic relationship boosts testosterone and why dysfunctional relationship dynamics can easily crush testosterone. And while this series may seem primarily geared towards men, do not forget that testosterone status is also critically important for women as well (for sex drive, focus, peak performance, and recovery).

Dr. Andreas Boettcher: It's Only Halftime, So Age Gracefully And Choose Out The "Declining Average"

Today’s show will introduce you to the very fit, engaging, and enthusiastic Dr. Andreas Boettcher who has an operation called ItsOnlyHalfTime.com, which is all about aging gracefully and extricating yourself from the disastrous patterns and norms we see around us with accelerated aging, disease, decline, and demise. You’ll enjoy hearing this practical and easy-to-follow discussion—no extreme or controversial statements—this episode is all about how easy it ultimately is to proceed with a pattern of aging gracefully and enjoying healthspan (the quality of life) for as long as possible. You will learn about the three main categories of disease and how to deal with them, his reboot program 7 Simple Shifts in 7 Days, and the inspiring story of the difficult road he was on before arriving at the place he is in today. As you will hear, Dr. Andreas knows from experience that it is truly never too late to turn your life around.   TIMESTAMPS: Aging is inevitable however, how you age is a choice. [03:21] Making the decision to age gracefully and healthfully is easier than most people think. [08:15] The US population is the most medicated nation in the world. [10:51] Doctors can give us medication, but often they don’t talk about lifestyle factors like diet. [17:32] When you do get a medication, does that take you back to optimal health? [19:46] The human body is amazingly beautiful as it is designed to self-heal and self-regulate.  We have lost sight of that. [27:48] Dr. Andreas describes his Seven Simple Shifts for Seven Days to Jumpstart Your Age Defying Journey. [30:06] How can an athlete monitor his training to maximize his or her health span longevity? [35:22] Use fitness as your vehicle to manage stress. [40:39] When making these changes in diet and exercise, it may be uncomfortable at first.  You just have to trust in the process getting you to the other side.  [46:07] Pain pills mask the pain signal between injury and your brain.  Your body cannot then heal itself.  You want to repair the injury, not pacify it.

Breather: How To Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 11 - Career-Pursue Your Inspired Purpose

In part 11 of this series all about optimizing testosterone naturally, we will be discussing how one very important part of our lifestyle affects our hormones. Testosterone is the “social status” hormone (as proven by research outlined in the book Top Dog), but contrary to the popular belief that testosterone levels correspond with aggression and big muscles, it’s actually the inverse—for example, if you think the guy yelling at you in traffic has too much testosterone, he actually has too little, according to Dr. John Gray. In reality, this social status hormone helps you perform in whatever area of interest that you are pursuing peak performance goals. This episode will explain how you can nurture healthy testosterone status by having meaningful pursuits in your career (and in your hobbies too). Dr. John Demartini has talked about the importance of pursuing your inspired purpose in previous shows, and you can start that journey by asking yourself: “What do I do spontaneously everyday that requires no motivation and contributes to a bigger cause and brings me joy?” This is the essence of leading a rich, meaningful, satisfying, and content existence—when you pursue peak performance goals that require preserving through difficult challenges to get better, and this goes hand in hand with optimal testosterone status.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brad: Ancestral Obsession Versus Optimal Modern Peak Performance

How do you balance a passion for ancestral living with pursuing optimal modern peak performance? This episode is all about how you can achieve that balance by utilizing and adapting the ancestral model to modern times while striving for optimization. In this show we will be discussing the benefits, as well as the effects and the necessity of certain elements of the ancestral model—you will hear about my experience with fasting, time-restricted feeding, and low carbohydrate dieting, and why I made the decision to cut these practices out of my life. I also discuss when things like fasting and time-restricted feeding are appropriate and helpful, why my goal now is to perform and recover, perform and recover, and stay fit while staving off the disastrous accelerated decline we sadly see as “normal” these days, and the benefits of taking an “eat more and move more” approach to diet and lifestyle.   TIMESTAMPS: Eric Frohart points out that exercise is the single most potent driver of health and longevity and averting disease risk.  [00:50] A protein-centric diet supports muscle growth, development, and muscle maintenance. [02:57] The hunter-gatherer, by definition, did the bare minimum necessary in order to survive. [05:07] It’s a stress mechanism to kick into ketone manufacturing to replace the glucose that’s not coming from the diet. [10:37] Don’t misinterpret what you hear about the amazing scientific benefits of eating less food or fasting for long periods of time. [14:01] Brad is now getting fully fueled each morning, having changed from his period of morning fasts. [19:18] You may notice when you have those days where you are not eating the normal big meal in the morning, your body temperature cools down in the afternoon because your thyroid turns down the temperature to conserve energy. [28:39] Our biological drives can be destroyed with too much stress in our life. Reproduction, repair, growth, and locomotion are what we need to maintain. [30:46] Go out and find the maximum amount of nutritious calories and move.

Breather: How To Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 9 - Supplement Options

Tara Garrison: Destroying Old Patterns And Forming Empowering New Habits And Mindset

Get ready for a fantastic show with my good friend Tara Garrison! Tara is an Instagram/fitness sensation and certified personal trainer, nutritionist, and mindset coach who helps high performers and everyday people be their best. In today’s show, Tara shares her incredible and touching backstory in the hopes of inspiring you to join her in the journey she has been on to transform her entire existence. You will hear Tara’s amazing personal story of transformation, starting from her challenging and traumatic childhood and family life, how she found her way and discovered her personal power to become a spiritual and healthy lifestyle guide, and how she lost everything and was forced to forge a new path for herself, all by herself. You will also hear the reflections Tara has learned that will help you check in with yourself and monitor your stress/rest balance, mindset, goals, ego, and reasons for consuming and participating in social media. It is so helpful to hear from someone on this path, especially when you hear Tara continually express her gratitude for so many things in her life that would make most people feel pretty resentful.   TIMESTAMPS: A powerful guide in Tara’s life is intuition. Listen to your body.  You don’t need a strict and rigid schedule. [05:01] Tara went from being overweight and regimented in her diet to finding a more casual approach that brought r6esults she wanted. [11:22] What was the journey Tara took to get to her present state to really unhealthy? It was a trauma response. [13:27] There is much mindset work that you have to do on a journey to getting healthy. [19:30] You learn so much by working with a coach. [24:37] How does one have a real relationship with your body? [27:08] When you are trying to override unhealthy cravings, learn to meditate to educate your body on what is the best thing for how you want to live your life. [31:35] Are you going to choose the old patterns or the new patterns? [36:20] It is hard to make that change from “I should” or “I have to” to “I want to do this for myself.” [40:49] In what way were the plant medicines and alternative health practices a catalyst for Tara? [51:03] Learn to really feel what you are feeling and learn from that what is most helpful to personal growth. [54:41] Guilt is one of the most corrosive emotions.

B.rad Podcast Highlights, Part 6

It’s time for another highlight show! I love getting to hear these interesting excerpts from past interviews, and hopefully hearing these short clips piques your curiosity and inspires you to go back and listen to the entire show. Even if you heard these episodes back when they first aired, I think you will enjoy revisiting previous shows and hearing highlights of some of the great topics we have covered. Enjoy the show!   TIMESTAMPS: Mia Moore and Brad discuss the rationale for eating ancestral style with her own perspective, not necessarily aligned with Brad’s.  [01:17] We are now realizing that the standard western diet has been a widespread dismal failure resulting in the fattest population in the history of humanity.   [06:34] Dave Scott is discussing what he learned about nutrition, especially about carb intake, during his career as a triathlete. [09:01] One should wait 35 to 45 minutes before having coffee in the morning and you can add carbs., according to Dave. [14:11] Instead of saying it’s your passion, consider think of it as you’re pursuing your inspired purpose. [18:20] If you fill your day with very high priority things, it's easy to say no to people. [29:16] Elle Russ explains how she had to take things into her own hands to come to solutions on the treatment of her thyroid problem. She has run into many doctors who were uniformed about thyroid issues. [32:02] If you have any autoimmune disorder, get antibodies down to the lowest levels possible or undetectable. [46:09] Gordo Byrn ties together the importance of fitness, family, and finances. He focuses on the impact of parenting on youth sports.

Breather: How To Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 7: Avoid Overly Stressful Workouts

In part 7 of this ongoing series of breather shows all about how to optimize testosterone naturally, we are talking about avoiding overly stressful workout patterns! This is a particularly important one since there are extreme consequences that come with overdoing it, especially when it comes to sex hormone optimization. As Dr. Herman Pontzer says: “Repair, reproduction, growth, and locomotion are a zero-sum game. Borrow too much from one, and you can compromise the other.” Overtraining is one of the ultimate testosterone killers, so tune in if you want to learn how you can optimize testosterone naturally and achieve a healthy balance with your workout routine.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Katy Bowman: Rethink Your Position, Maximize Your Body, Minimize Your Life

I am so pleased to welcome my old friend and repeat podcast guest Katy Bowman back to the show! Katy is the queen of nutritious movement (check out her website here to connect with her and get a more movement-oriented lifestyle). Katy joins us to talk about her new book, Rethink Your Position, which deals with the many options we have as we move our bodies throughout everyday life and why “Maximalism of the body helps you achieve minimalism in life.” Aside from workouts, we also have an obligation to optimize movement in everyday life and I love Katy’s work on the goal of creating a dynamic workplace environment (you can enroll in her digital course, Don’t Just Sit There, by clicking here). Katy shares some interesting specifics in this show, like head ramping (a drill you can do to get your head aligned with your shoulders), the benefits of spending more time sitting and interacting with the ground, and her minimalist sleeping experience (including how she has gradually moved away from using even a pillow!).    TIMESTAMPS: Katy Bowman is an expert on movement and posture. [00:47] If exercisers take a lot of downtime, sedentary time, it’s important to do it right. [06:03] Specialization is necessary for competition, but it's not great for longevity. [10:35] Our generation is not moving their body the way they used to years ago. One study says we spend 86% of our time inside and 7% in a vehicle. [23:46] Our relationship with nature and our relationship with movement can’t really be separated. [26:32] Supplementing in many areas is not really meeting our needs. [28:33] You might have a physical malady and go for treatment, but you also need to look at fixing how you got the injury.  [31:40] In her new book, Katy has short essays divided by body parts so if you are focusing on the knees, for example, you go right to that chapter. [35:03] Flexible seating in classrooms, workstations and even around the home is a low-cost way to keep in shape. [39:08] Being seated on the ground is using different muscles in the body for support from those used when sitting in a chair. We are not very fluent in our physicality. [42:23] So often when we are working on screens or reading, we position our head forward, in front of our ears, thus throwing our spines out. By learning the head ramps described by Katy, you will be in a better position. [51:09] It is hard to separate age from length of habit. Forget about aging. Look at length of habit. [57:13] Minimalist bedding experience includes no pillow.  How does that work? [58:32] How does Katy produce so much as a writer?

Breather: How To Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 6 - Brief, Explosive, High-Intensity Exercise

Welcome to part 6 in our series of breather shows on how to optimize testosterone naturally! To quickly review: In part 1 we covered sleep, rest/recovery, and downtime, in part 2 we talked about ditching toxic, modern, processed foods, and part 3 was all about nutrient dense plant foods (like fruit) from the Carnivore Scores chart. In part 4 we focused on the most nutrient dense animal foods from the chart and in part 5, finding ways to move more in everyday life (aside from structured cardiovascular sessions).  In part 6, you will learn about the importance of performing brief, explosive, high-intensity workouts, as they are a huge natural driver of testosterone and other adaptive hormones. As you will hear, this is the appropriate use of the flight of fight response—putting yourself under stress through short exercise efforts that are brief and explosive. However, as you will learn in this show, it’s important to make sure that while you still perform these exercises regularly, you do not overdo it and do them too frequently—nor should they last too long. Tune in to learn how you can utilize resistance training and sprinting to optimize testosterone, as well as how microworkouts can be a wonderful addition to support this goal!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Jason Prall: A Fresh Look At Human Longevity, And Beyond!

Jason Prall delivers a sensational presentation in this episode on the fascinating topic of human longevity! Rarely have I interviewed such a powerhouse guest, so fasten your seatbelts because this guy brings the heat and you can hardly catch your breath as we cover a tremendous range of topics all centered around longevity. Jason is well-known for his documentary series called Human Longevity Project, and he also recently released a book called Beyond Longevity: A Human Plan For For Healing Faster, Feeling Better, and Thriving At Any Age. We cover so many other topics aside from the basics of eating healthy, exercise, and moderating stress, and Jason’s work has led him to doing an incredible amount of research into these topics, which makes him an incredibly passionate and knowledge resource. We have a really practical and grounded conversation that also incorporates elements of appreciation, spirituality, aging gracefully, and according to Jason, “paying attention to all the energetic inputs to highlight the areas that provide the biggest opportunity for improvement.”   QUOTES: “If we wish to thrive in the modern world, we must create a mental, emotional, physical, and energetic environment that is congruent with this natural lifecycle.”   TIMESTAMPS: Jason brings to us all the latest information on longevity. [00:56] The Human Longevity Project came about from looking at combining all aspects of our current life as well as the spiritual concepts and a deeper understanding of biology. [03:30] What have we learned from the people in the Blue Zone? [07:50] Why do would we want to live to 100? [09:29] We have to concentrate on how we deal with the effects of today’s lifestyle with technology and other things that trigger our nervous system. We have adapted to the environment that we’re in. [21:26] We all have the capacity to change our mental and emotional framework. [27:03] Do the people in the Blue Zone naturally feel grateful and are they naturally able to manage their attention and priorities without a Google calendar? [28:30] In our culture there is actually an underlying stressor keeping our sympathetic system elevated on a chronic basis.  [34:15] The foods that people eat in different cultures vary and they are not labeled bad or good.  All foods are bad or good in the right context. Each person is different. [37:50] The people in the Blue Zones eat what is available.  They can get away with eating more Starchy carbohydrates because they are on the move all day long. [43:57] There won’t be Blue Zones like in the past because modern western influence has emerged. [47:31] It is important to pay attention to all the energetic inputs that provide biggest opportunities for improvement wherever you stand now. Pay attention to the circadian rhythm. [54:28] What did you see that was the impact of Western society as you were going back and forth between these primitive cultures and places like New York City?  [01:01:26] The first seven years of one’s life lays the groundwork for longevity. [01:07:48] The depth of knowledge and awareness that those centenarians Jason interviewed have, not only acknowledging about their culture and their life and the human experience from their perspective, but they also seem to understand it. [01:18:50] They have a community of safety. They trust that things are going to be fine. [01:21:36] Living a youthful life, hanging out with younger people and pets all help you keep up that youthful spirit. [01:28:44] You have an opportunity every day to establish a new way of being.

Breather: How to Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 5 - Increase General Movement

Welcome to part 5 in our lengthy series of breather shows about how to optimize testosterone naturally. Today we’re talking about something that many experts rank above the importance of adhering to a devoted fitness regimen—the objective to move more in everyday life. There are so many sedentary forces in today’s world, so tune in to hear how you can ensure you’re moving enough every day and breaking up those prolonged periods of stillness that are too easy to fall into in modern life. Since sitting for just 20 minutes prompts a noticeable decline in glucose tolerance and an increase in insulin resistance, this is an extremely important health objective, especially if you want to optimize testosterone.  LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Q&A: Can More (Nutritious) Food And More Exercise Get Your Leaner?; Are You Drinking Too Much Water?

Welcome to another Q&A show! If you’ve ever wondered how much water is too much water, we’re talking about it in this show, along with a few other topics, like what I think about the Kataylst EMS suit and innovations in exercise, if eating more food can actually help you get leaner, and more!   TIMESTAMPS: Walking and running are two entirely forms of locomotion.  [00:49] You always want to keep a straight and elongated spine for all your activities. [03:01] Mike Catlin talks about how listening to Mike Mutzel, he was able to change his point of view about fasting. What we need are more nutritious sources of energy, and more movement throughout the day. [06:42] The rate of conversion of fat to energy is slower than the conversion of glucose to energy. [09:29] Our paleo ancestors didn’t work out three to five days a week so they didn’t need to fuel up for frequent peak performances the way modern people do. [13:05] When power lifting be careful to protect your spine.  Know what you are doing. [16:30] If you properly design a high intensity workout, you're not out there for too long draining your tank and getting exhausted and depleted and suppressing your immune function and your stress hormone. [21:43] Mike is asking about circadian rhythm. Of course, we need much more sleep, but it is said that between midnight and 3 AM are the most important times to be down in the dark getting your sleep. Anything that takes us out of that circadian rhythm has an adverse effect on us. [26:46] You get your dopamine triggers from many aspects of your activity flooding the receptors in our brain. [28:53] Eric Frohardt writes in about recent theories on the energy-balance concept talking about adding fruit to his carnivore diet. Autophagy is the natural internal cellular detoxification. [33:33] Constrained model of energy expenditure contends that humans bump up against an upper limit a ceiling of our total daily energy expenditure essentially no matter what.

Breather: How to Optimize Testosterone Naturally, Part 4 - Nutrient-Dense Diet - Best Animal Foods

Welcome to part four in this series sharing how I optimize my testosterone totally naturally. In this episode, you will learn about the benefits and differences between the various kinds of animal protein (particularly when it comes to comparing ruminant animals with white meat animals like chicken and turkey) the kinds of protein that offer the most nutrient density, the one food that I consider to be the single most nutrient-dense food on the planet as well as why, the importance of bringing back Ancestral/traditional ways of preparing food (particularly organ meats), and the health benefits that come returning to our cultural roots.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page B.rad Whey Protein Isolate Superfuel   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Damian Porter: Optimizing Breathing, Sleep, And Stress Management

Damian Porter—former police officer, current firefighter and coach, and one of the first personal trainers in the world back in his home country of New Zealand—is here today and coming to us all the way from Perth, Australia—the most isolated city in the world. In this show, we talk about sleep tactics and strategies for optimal sleep cycles, the power of intentional breathing to instantly change your physiology and depart from an anxious, stressed state into parasympathetic function, tips for stress management, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: Damien’s specialty is managing stress through sleep. [01:23] Damien has served in the military and the counterterrorist team, as a police officer, and as a fireman. He has learned that the important things in life are health, sleep, and nutrition. [07:15] He has used his special forces experience in the last six months as a teacher/coach teaching people how not to die. [11:24] Although we basically speak the same language, there are cultural differences between Australia and New Zealand when compared to the United States. [14:13] Do we protect our kids so much that they become more fragile?  Rather than “Be careful,” Damien says, “Be clever.” [17:25] What are the major points of dealing with our stress levels and our tendency toward anxiety and troubled sleep? Learn Box Breathing. [18:53] Simply offering a sip of water when someone is panicking, will definitely calm them.  [24:22] What does Damien tell his clients about sleep? Sleep is one of the best things you can do. It outperforms any drug. [28:40] There are people who would like to have better sleeping patterns but are challenged because of work schedules or parenting chores, or even bad habits. How can they be helped? [35:35] It is important to reduce body temperature to get sound sleep.  What are the strategies to reduce body temperature? [51:47] Where does the fitness component come into the picture with all Damien’s emphasis on de-stressing? [56:18] Do you have the same hazards in Australia in child-rearing as we do in America?

Q&A: Fasting With Illness, Feeding Dog Correctly, Nutritious Carbs For Performance, Burning Both Fat And Carbs, More Commentary On Shelby Houlihan And Doping In Sports

I made it all the way to 2023 without getting Covid, but in January I was forced to check out from my everyday life, sleep more, and rest as I recovered after testing positive. I even broke my six-year long streak of performing my morning movement routine every single morning without fail, but this gave me a wonderful chance to reflect on my health and my habits with fitness and food. In this Q&A episode, I talk about if fasting is okay when you have an illness, how to feed your dog in the healthiest way possible, my favorite nutritious carbs for peak performance, and how I feel about doping in sports—particularly in regards to my previous guest Shelby Houlihan’s situation.  Enjoy the show!   TIMESTAMPS: Whenever Brad has an illness, he tries not to eat much thinking that the body can heal itself faster when giving the digestive system a break. [00:47] The first question is from Jordan asking about how to improve his dog’s diet. [08:46] Another listener asks about how Brad prepares his intake of liver. He chops it into little pieces and freezes them. [12:55] David De la Rosa asks how do I feed myself during training racing for a long endurance event? Endurance athletes out there should be consuming a ton of fresh fruit and other nutritious, easy-to-digest carbs that work for them. [15:48] Brenna criticizes Brad’s comments in the podcast with Shelby Houlihan about her ingesting of a banned substance. [19:47] David from Spain is working on his diet and is concerned about adding carbs. Brad’s response is when you have good metabolic health that equals metabolic flexibility, you are going to be able to burn whatever sources of energy you need to thrive. [30:35] David also asks about his training approach. With his very active training approach, he’s wondering about switching his tempo runs and intervals with a less stressful Maffetone style.

Brad: Ultimate Guide To Sprinting - Benefits And How-To, Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of the ultimate guide to sprinting—the quintessential Primal workout. In part 1 we talked about the benefits that come from this amazing practice and in part 2, I take you through a step-by-step of how to approach conducting a proper sprint workout. You will learn what happens to your body when you do a sprint workout, and not just how to sprint, but most importantly, when to sprint, as the timing of your sprinting is integral to its effectiveness.    TIMESTAMPS: Sprinting is the ultimate primal workout. How should we conduct a proper sprint workout and enjoy the benefits? [00:58] You want to be fully rested and energized before you attempt to have a sprint workout.  [02:48] Sprinting creates a communication between the central nervous system and the muscles. [04:54] The workout template is four to 10 sprints lasting between 10 and 20 seconds, no longer than 20 seconds. [08:55] You want to strive for a six to one ratio of rest to work effort. [11:58] There's great research showing that sprints as short as six seconds will deliver a reliable boost in serum testosterone levels. [16:14] When you burn through your stored creatine phosphate, and try to sustain maximum effort beyond eight seconds, you prompt an exponential increase in cellular destruction. [19:28] By depleting your cellular energy, by frying yourself and doing all this metabolic extreme destructive damage, you feel a sense of euphoria for a while. [24:38] The brain cells are particularly sensitive to ammonia toxicity, so after many hours of grueling workouts, you may experience symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, and mood disturbances. [29:52] Much of the information out there on the internet about training logs could be misinterpreted and misappropriated because it’s coming from an elite athlete. [32:10] There are many steps in performing an effective sprint workout. The first is to engage in plenty of complimentary workouts and lifestyle behaviors to prepare you to be an effective sprinter. [35:08] At the start of the workout, we want to have a cardio vascular warmup session. It’s the opposite of the cool down. [38:09] Dynamic stretching is next as you prepare for your sprinting. [40:03] Proper running form includes straight posture rather than over-striding. [42:00] Wind Sprints are short accelerations where you get up to near full speed and then take it down. [44:22] There are many ways to trash yourself by conducting a sprint workout inappropriately. Reject that struggle and suffer mentality and check in and make sure that we're optimally excited and uninhibited before each successive rep. [47:14] After the sprint, you want a gentle aerobic cool down maybe by walking rather than jogging. [53:51] Positional parasympathetic breathing is kind of a mini nap resting period lying down and breathing through your nose after workout. [56:52] Next you need to replenish by consuming healthy, nutritious, easy to digest fuel to get your body started on the recovery process. [59:16] It will take about 48 hours for your body to recover from a high-impact sprint session so you make sure you are fully recovered before introducing another sprint workout.

Carlee Hayes: Continuous Glucose Monitoring For Metabolic Health And Inspired Behavior Change

Today Carlee Hayes joins us to talk about the wonderful cutting-edge technology of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)—including a look at my private medical information as Carlee evaluates my journey with CGM from a few years ago, as well as the most recent one that occurred a few months ago. Carlee is the senior nutrition manager for Nutrisense, and as you will hear, CGM goes far beyond the occasional snapshot that we get when we check our fasting blood glucose and the doctor tells you you’re ok (or pre-diabetic). This is a 24/7 technology that allows you to see, throughout the day, all the different variables that affect not only your glucose levels at any time, but also your ability to regulate glucose. As you listen to this episode, you will see why I believe this is such an important thing to do for yourself—it’s a total education in the impact of your dietary habits, as well as your exercise and sleep habits and how they affect your ability to regulate glucose and manage insulin, making it an ideal tool for behavior modification, which of course, has a hugely positive impact on your health, happiness, and quality of life.    TIMESTAMPS: Your bucket list should include glucose monitoring because you learn so much about the variables in your life that affect your ability to achieve metabolic health. [00:47] Analyze in real-time how your glucose levels respond to food, exercise, stress, and sleep. [02:14] The reading that you get from this patch on your arm goes into an app on your phone 24/7. [06:09] What is really good about this program is that the user has direct contact with an advisor at any time. [11:07] What are we looking for besides just fasting glucose?  One thing we look for is variability. [13:28] When we are talking about individual meal responses, the app calculates a score based on that meal. If we have a spike in glucose, do we want a steady slope back down to baseline? [23:05] Reactive hypoglycemia symptoms are feeling hangry, irritable, and shaky. [27:57] How the choice of foods in your meal affects the impact on blood glucose. [30:20] What are we actually burning based on what we are eating? [36:07] When you eat too much food and don’t burn enough calories, we have energy toxicity. [39:19] Our insulin sensitivity is closely aligned with our body’s Circadian rhythm. It might be just the timing we have to tweak. [42:46] Is a lower reading of fasting blood glucose better? [47:57] Brad engaged in the Nutrisense program he was able to find a way to have a little bit more  flexibility in his diet, but it didn't impact his glucose in a negative way. [54:14] Do we have a certain limit on how much protein we can assimilate at one time? [58:45] Identify the foods that you want to start eliminating and identify your goals.  It does not have to be overwhelming to make some changes. [01:02:09] Sleep is just as important as your diet.

Breather: Second Guessing Khloe Kardashian's Seemingly Glowing Diet And Exercise Routine

I recently received a very amusing (and unsolicited) newsletter blast with the headline: “Keeping Fit With The Kardashians: Best Celebrity Workouts To Follow in 2023!” I do not like getting spammed, but instead of moving this one to the trash, I thought it would be fun to create a breather show breaking down some of the mainstream diet and fitness that seems sensible and seems like it is supported by a lot of cultural messaging and mainstream belief systems, but can actually be highly counterproductive. Especially when you’re talking about celebrities (who have access to things like trainers and personal chefs), it’s important to examine these so-called health practices to see if they really are healthy or if they are actually taking an unhealthy approach to diet and exercise (and advising others to do the same). Tune in to hear me share my thoughts on consuming foods like oats, foods containing high amounts of phytoestrogens like flaxseed, how snacking affects metabolic health, inferior sources of animal protein and the most nutrient-dense sources of protein, as well as my thoughts on Khloe’s workout routine.   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Mark Sisson: The Rationale And Benefits of Barefoot/Minimalist Shoe Lifestyle, And How To Do It Right

I’m catching up with Mark Sisson today about one very important facet of ancestral living—minimalist footwear. This episode will give you all the information you need to know about the barefoot lifestyle and how it helps us become more integrated into proprioception (how we orient ourselves in the world relative to everything around us). You’ll also learn all about Mark’s latest passion project and how his search for the perfect (but still stylish) minimalist footwear led him to Peluva. Once you learn how most modern shoes make it possible for us to bypass the sensory input at the bottoms of our feet that informs our brains and the benefits of wearing minimalist footwear, you won’t ever go back to conventional shoes again.   TIMESTAMPS: Our feet have 10,000 nerves there to sense the ground under our feet to help orient ourselves in the world. When we wear padded shoes, we lose that sensitivity. [02:36] The invention of the high-tech running shoe did not reduce the number of injuries. [04:45] Peluva shoes are minimalist shoes with five toes but with more cushion and circulation in the foot. [10:38] We need the feedback from those 10,000 nerves to keep our balance and it is nullified when you put on those protective padded shoes.  The foot impact lessens but the injuries then go to hip and knees.  [12:00] When we walk, we are supposed to walk heel to toe but when we run it is different with the lead on the midfoot. [13:17] The Peluvas are not designed to be a running shoe. [16:25] These shoes have cushioning you don’t see in other five-toed shoes. [20:03] One of the key tenets of any minimalist shoes is they have zero drop which means there is little difference between the heel height and the forefoot. [26:34] Why can Brad jump high in the Peluva shoes than in regular basketball shoes? [32:14] Why should a regular person, not an athlete, wear these shoes? Because they are the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever wear.  You have to acclimate your feet to begin wearing these shoes. It’s hard to get the toes in the first time! [39:58] Mark thinks it would be ideal for everyone to go barefoot, but in the absence of that, wear Peluvas. [48:18] There are still people who advocate for a maximal shoe with maximal support and cushioning.

Brad: Ultimate Guide To Sprinting, Part 1

Welcome to a comprehensive presentation about the amazing fitness benefits of sprinting and how to conduct workouts correctly! While I have talked about the importance (and benefits) of sprinting for years on the podcast, a listener recently pointed out that I’ve never done a dedicated show on this subject, so in this episode, we’re going deep: You will learn about all the benefits, rationale, and science behind sprinting, as well as the practical application of how to integrate correctly designed sprint workouts into your fitness program. Unfortunately, despite its importance, this is an area of deficiency for many devoted fitness enthusiasts. However, as you will learn why in this show, we have a critical obligation to build our competency in this area, since sprinting is a key component to aging gracefully, longevity, health vitality, and peak performance, and it offers not just physical benefits, but also cognitive ones.    TIMESTAMPS: Sprinting is a key component of aging gracefully and promoting longevity, health, vitality, and peak performance at all lower levels of intensity. [00:48] The hormonal signaling for going out and jogging or pedaling your bicycle for long distance is not directly correlated with dropping excess body fat. [04:00] The hormonal benefits are there when you perform no impact or low impact sprints. Sprinting on flat ground is the harder workout. [09:47] Once a week, once every seven to 10 days for a high impact running sprint is plenty, even for a very competent fitness enthusiast, let alone a novice. [11:00] HIIT vs. HIRT is explained. Too many people participate in overly stressful exercises which do not help your long-term steady progression of fitness levels. [14:13] The risk of injury skyrockets when you are asked to do a workout for which you are not capable. [17:12] You want to be 100 percent rested and energized to deliver a peak performance effort every time you conduct a sprint workout. [20:26] The proper techniques are available on Brad’s YouTube videos. They include maintaining a straight and elongates spine throughout the stride pattern, and maintaining a strong foot position. [23:16] You burn energy better, you burn fat better, you store energy better from sprinting. [25:25] Sprinting also helps you become more alert, more energized and more insulin sensitive.  It also boosts your testosterone status. [28:42] There is research showing that sprinting makes you smarter! And you also upregulate an assortment of anti-inflammatory processes. [35:54] The number one goal to promote long healthy, active, energetic life is maintaining strong muscle mass.

Jay Feldman #4: The Compelling Case For Prioritizing Carb Burning And Being Fully Fueled And Minimally Stressed

Jay Feldman is back for his fourth appearance on B.rad! Jay is one of my favorite guests to have on the podcast and our episodes together are some of my all-time favorites, as I love the way he presents his compelling argument that we should rethink many of the foundational principles of ancestral health, such as intermittent fasting, low-carb, keto, and time-restricted feeding. You will hear some scientific insights in this show that will get your head spinning and inspire you to rethink many of these practices we’ve been indoctrinated into from a big-picture perspective, such as are these things we’ve been doing actually healthy? And who (and what) can we trust to lead us down the path towards a healthy, happy, balanced, and energetic life? As you will hear in this show, a lot of the science and dogma we have been fed for a long time (not just mainstream dogma, but ancestral dogma as well) can now be scrutinized as coming from flawed or dated science or misinterpreted science. We talk about a few controversial topics, such as the comparison between being a fat burner like our ancestors or prioritizing carbohydrates as the human body’s preferred and most efficient source of energy, and you’ll also hear about the actual causes of excess body fat and how to get it off appropriately and healthily. Finally, we wrap up with a round of quick questions: are Omega-3’s really the anti-inflammatory Kings/vaunted centerpiece of our diets, or should we now avoid all forms of polyunsaturated fats?     TIMESTAMPS: We need to rethink many of the foundational principles of ancestral health. [02:35] There is much controversy among extreme health enthusiasts regarding healthy nutrition. Compare being a fat burner versus being good at burning glucose. [08:21] We must question and be open to learning new things.  In school we are taught to read this book and memorize what is in it. You have to experiment on your own for what is best for you.  [10:11] What people are the best candidates to thrive on keto, fasting, or carb restriction? [16:43] Stress can catch up to you when you are involved in some of these restrictive diets. [20:56] Fructose can go to the liver and cause fat, but there is much more to it than that.  [22:17] What is going on when the hunger is dysregulated and the obesity is occurring? [30:58] When Jay was a young athlete, he was experimenting with his diet and at one point was emphasizing starches and doing himself a disservice. [32:33] Let’s talk about sugar. Good or bad? Ray Peat’s work talks about preferring carbs over fats. [38:25] Our health depends on our ability to produce energy. [43:43] When we look at our evolution from our ancestors, we see that if we are in an environment that is more energetically favorable, it’ll lead to greater complexity, greater brain function, greater ability to function. [45:52] Calorie restriction is not the best way to extend life span, according to Jay. [55:20] Work on not being sedentary and work on changing the foods you eat. [01:01:05] It’s fats versus carbs?  Which is better? You don’t have to put all your eggs in one basket. [01:04:17] Fat burning produces more reactive oxygen species and as such, it has a hormetic effect. [01:08:23] Keto, fasting, those things are beneficial in some ways despite the stress. [01:16:47] If getting fat adapted is known to have a performance benefit, is this a different paradigm than us at rest and trying to get through our life when we're going out on a four-hour bike [01:24:20] What about mixing carbs and fasts in general? [01:27:57] If you are carrying excess body fat, it is important to get healthy first by making better choices. [01:32:10] Does prescription medication have an influence on things like our hunger, satiety, energy production signals in terms of side effects?

Breather: Biology Of Belief Strategies To Improve Your Romantic Relationship

What could be more important than your mindset? In a previous breather show we talked about the core principles of the The Biology of Belief and the protection response our cells have (which is driven by fear, anger, and stress) as well as the growth response cells have (for which love is the most prominent driver).  But what do you do when the stakes are higher? It’s easy to say, “relax, just think positive thoughts” when you’re stuck in a traffic jam, but unfortunately, when stakes are higher, such as in an argument with your partner, you’re going to forget to use all those healthy communication skills you’ve learned over the years, and you’re going to go straight into protection response—an automatic response all due to flawed, subconscious programming.  If you want to learn how you can use The Biology of Belief strategies to improve your romantic relationship, then this is the episode for you. You’ll hear some useful advice from relationship experts like best-selling author John Gray and David Deida, such as the best way to handle a heated emotional exchange with your partner, how to avoid creating resentment within your relationship, and what a man’s response to their partner’s emotional outbursts reveals about his resilience.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Breather: How Thoughts Affect Cellular Function At All Times - Biology Of Belief

What would you do if you knew that your cellular function was being directly affected by your thoughts—at all times? Would you change anything? And what would you do if you found out that the outer layer of a cell is an organic homologue of a computer chip—basically the cell’s equivalent of a brain? If you want to learn how to utilize the core concepts of best-selling author and stem cell biologist Bruce Lipton’s book, The Biology of Belief, which explains the principles of quantum physics and how they apply to his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems, then this is the show for you. In this episode, you will learn what is happening inside your body in reaction to your experiences, such as how your perception switches located on your cell membranes interpret your positive or negative thoughts and trigger the production of either mood-elevating hormones such as serotonin or, alternatively, stress hormones such as cortisol. The disturbing and mind-blowing premise of the biology of belief is that when operating from the conscious mind, we are the creators of our lives, but when we operate through the subconscious mind, our lives are shaped by the raw downloaded programs we acquired in the first seven years of our lives. This reveals that we are not creating the lives we desire but are unconsciously (through the subconscious mind) manifesting lives that are coherent with the beliefs we downloaded as children, and this is a big problem—for most people, up to 70% of the downloaded beliefs we acquired before turning 7 are disempowering, self-sabotaging, or limiting. Tune in if you want to find out how to truly manifest the life you want, what you can do about the fact that our cells cannot multitask, and how to send your perception switches a different message. You will also learn about the three categories of perceptions your cells have and how they operate (there is a growth response, a neutral response, and a protection response), as well as the most powerful triggers you can consciously use to turn on a growth response or a protection response.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Gordo Byrn: Fitness, Family, Finances, And Taking Action From Self-Reflection

I am so pleased to introduce a very interesting guest, my old friend Gordo Byrn. He is a prolific blogger and Tweeter on matters relating to his favorite subjects (family, fitness, and finances) and he has a wonderful newsletter I encourage you to subscribe to—Gordo Byrn’s Endurance Essentials—as well as a blog called True Wealth, which is all about family, parenting, getting your priorities straight in life, being self-reflective about you spend your time, and the true meaning of wealth. Gordo has a fascinating personal story and he shares some really interesting philosophical reflections as he talks about going through career blocks as an overworked money guy, extreme endurance training, and being fit after 40 and 50. Gordo is incredibly self-reflective, so he offers a really balanced perspective when talking about his past choices, the ‘pendulum’ between strength and endurance, and how to optimize and manage our (lower) energy as we get into the older age groups. We talk about parenting, aging gracefully, and adjusting athletic and lifestyle goals over time, as well as the importance of being prudent with your financial decisions and having that line up with your career path, goals, and dreams.   TIMESTAMPS: Gordo’s fascinating journey has gone from high finance to endurance sports, coaching to family man. He brings wisdom to all areas of life. [00:23] Realizing that he couldn’t make a living in triathlon, Gordo spent time with family where he got out of shape, and now continues to work on staying fit. [07:16] Many people in finance and in the corporate lifestyle, make a mistake in that they view spending as a quality of life. [10:57] If you have the potential for something and enjoy the process, you can get to the top. You can learn physical skills late in life. [12:59] Teach yourself and teach your kids de-escalation and persistence. [19:30] Do the personality attributes of a competitive athlete transfer over to parenting skills? [24:42] If you are a Type A person very competitive, you may find you are competing in everything.  So choose your game carefully. [32:00] Athletics can help fill the void when you feel that empty nest. Metabolic fitness is important for healthy aging. [34:50] If you are a new athlete or coming to a new sport, ignore the optimal program. It will hurt you. Think about quickness, strength, and stamina. [39:05] Running has weight-bearing bone-density benefits. [45:41] There should be a pendulum between strength and endurance. [45:41] It’s not a good idea to make your body bigger than it wants to be or have too much extreme exercise. [54:36] If it is not enjoyable for you, it is too intense. Time is the ultimate asset. [59:45] When you are a big spender, you are much less wealthy than you think. [01:05:30] There is a huge percentage of people living paycheck to paycheck.  They don’t have the luxury of changing direction as Gordo did. A lot of our spending and goals come from the environment that we put ourselves in [01:08:55] We tend to pass our unfinished business to our children. How do we define success? You cannot make your child a champion. [01:13:39] You may not have as much influence on your kids as you hope or wish. Your actions are going to be stronger than your words. [01:20:18] In the Ironman in Hawaii, the times keep improving.  Improved bicycles and other things are at play.

Breather: Insights From Dr. John Demartini - Pursuing Your "Inspired Purpose"

Would you like to know how you can change your life in just 15 minutes or less? If so, this is the episode for you! You will hear an incredibly motivating selection of life-changing insights from Dr. John Demartini in this show, such as why phrases like “I need to” “I have to” and “I should do…” create internal conflict within your authentic self, how to discover what your “inspired purpose” is, what happens when you don’t fill your day with high-priority actions (it has to do with low-priority distractions), why you should delegate as much as possible (especially the things that don’t bring you joy!), what happens when you don’t empower your life (hint: other people will end up overpowering you!), why Dr. Demartini advises following your purpose instead of your passion(s) (and the difference between the two), plus even more truly life-changing quotes!   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

B.rad Podcast Highlights, Part 5

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 protected]. 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.    TIMESTAMPS: 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.

Breather: Breaking Through Your Upper Limit With Turnaround Statements

Can you identify limiting beliefs you have about love, financial abundance, or creativity? Maybe you believe that you have bad luck and keep finding loser guys, or that you can’t sing, draw, do math or spreadsheets. One limiting belief I broke through this past year was that I’ve always thought I had no natural talent for art, that I could never do it—and yet here I am, hand shaping clay sculpture of dogs and enjoying it so much. This breather show is inspired by an idea from the book The Big Leap by psychologist Gay Hendricks, who advances the compelling argument that we bump up against an “upper limit” in life—“an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy.” According to Hendricks, unfortunately, that thermostat setting usually “gets programmed in early childhood….Once programmed, our Upper Limit thermostat setting holds us back from enjoying all the love, financial abundance, and creativity that’s rightfully ours.” This show will teach you how to break through your upper limit by identifying programmed behaviors and beliefs so you can evaluate if they are serving you or if you deserve a change, so you can then commit to a new habit. You will hear tips for making your new habit stick, including new self-talk and of course, your own behavior, as well as a fantastic piece of advice from Jack Canfield about how to turn any limiting belief into a positive one. If any of this stuff sounds silly and you don’t think it will work, you’re right! It’s not going to work for you with that attitude—but if you believe deeply that this can work, that you deserve to transform, and that you will make a full commitment to the process, you are going to prove yourself right—in just 30 days, you can transform any limiting belief into a positive one.

Elle Russ: Taking Control Of Your Thyroid Health

It’s always a pleasure to connect with Elle Russ—we’ve been podcasting together for years, and we’re hitting it hard in today’s show because we have some important topics to discuss. We start with a refresher on the importance of thyroid function and the confusion and controversy surrounding prescribing medication for it, especially in light of things I have been reflecting on recently, such as the Energy Balance concept and striving for maximum cellular energy status at all times, as opposed to playing around with restrictive diets that could contribute to an overly stressful lifestyle overall. Knowing how sensitive the thyroid is, it’s crucial to understand the ways that you can optimize thyroid function without adding any unnecessary extra stress to your body, and thankfully Elle, the author of The Paleo Thyroid Solution, is an expert on this topic and is here to share all her knowledge in this episode so you can learn how you can take full control of your thyroid health!   TIMESTAMPS: Sixty percent of people who have thyroid issues are undiagnosed. [02:35] The thyroid gland is in charge of sex hormones, heart rate, body temperature and other things. [04:28] Women need to make sure they are correctly diagnosed if they have a thyroid problem.  There can be many gynecological issues. [07:37] If anyone is suffering from thyroid issues for many years, it is because either the doctor is uninformed or you are uninformed and you can’t help. [09:15] What causes the thyroid to malfunction? [13:51] Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune form of hypothyroidism. [16:37] Diet has a lot to do with repairing a thyroid problem. [18:00] Grave’s disease effects hyperthyroidism. [21:29] It is not a good idea to just take a pill that is prescribed without your understanding what it is doing.  If you have been diagnosed with a disease, you’d better learn all about it. [24:41] The best books on thyroid are written by patients. [26:49] It is safer to be hypo than to be hyper. {28:58] What is the scenario when someone has undiagnosed or subclinical sluggish thyroid? [30:48] Stress can cause a thyroid problem even if you are eating right. [33:16] Be specific in asking for a thorough blood screening, including all thyroid hormones.  [35:09] When you are hypo and you’re sluggish and slow, you don’t have enough thyroid hormones to produce energy for your brain. Adrenal fatigue is horrible! [38:57] Take your temperature every day. [40:34] You could have some favorable numbers on that important six panel, but then be coming in with complaints of cold hands, cold feet, cold body, brain fog, poor recovery. And you could have a problem even with normal numbers. [48:06] We don't know what our level is right now and our potential because we have nothing to compare it to. [50:58] If one takes Elle’s course, what will they learn?

Breather: Reprogramming Flawed Subconscious Behavior Patterns

Did you know that your thoughts directly influence your cellular function—at all times? This means every thought you have—sad, hopeful, anxious, calm, angry—has the ability to change the physical chemistry of your body immediately, and this also means that you have the power to completely reprogram any flawed, subconscious behavior patterns you have accumulated throughout your lifetime. I urge you to listen to my epic interview with The Biology of Belief author Dr. Bruce Lipton if you haven’t yet, but as I explain in this breather show, your thoughts have the power to completely change your life—for better or for worse. Evidence of this can be found in my interview with Dr. Ron Sinha, who revealed that the act of rumination can actually be categorized as a physical disease state. Research shows that engaging in rumination about the past or future can cause immediate harm to your physical health, and the continued act of rumination will show up in bloodwork as a stressed, anxious, depressed person. Since most of us generally operate out of flawed, subconscious programming 98–99% of the time, focusing on your thoughts and the power they hold can truly transform your life, and this show will teach you how to create lasting change and the two primary ways you can reprogram your subconscious.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brad: The Fake, Ridiculous, Dangerous Goal of Mt. Everest

The inspiration for this show came after I saw a very well-produced documentary series called “Everest: Beyond The Limits” that’s available on Amazon Prime. This extremely well-produced account covers numerous Mt. Everest guided expeditions over three seasons, and the cinematography is so beautiful that it makes you feel like you are right there on the mountain with the climbers. One of the most entertaining and emotion-stirring aspects of the show is watching the astonishing idiocy of ego-driven extreme competitors, who seemingly will stop at nothing to achieve their obsession of standing on the highest point on earth.  As I made my way through the episodes, I would often shout at the screen with exasperation at the behaviors and comments of the main protagonists. My need to vent results in a podcast episode that steps outside my usual content themes. However, I think there is some relevance here: it’s important to reflect on how our competitive instincts and goal-oriented mentalities can easily spin out of control to our detriment. In the case of Everest, overdoing it or doing it wrong can cost climbers their lives. Witness how 80% of deaths occur on the descent from the summit, because climbers extend past their limits and forget that getting to the top is only part of the challenge.  In this podcast episode, I throw down, and break down, five key aspects of extreme high altitude mountaineer that deserve scrutiny and perhaps recalibration. It seems these days that we are over-glorifying achievements—represented by ostentatious displays of wealth, physiques, power, and fame, and incredible athletic performances—performances that often transcend common sense and conflict with perceived honor the participant is trying to earn. Is your life void so large that you are willing to accept a 5% death rate on the mountain (310 overall deaths, 6,000+ summiteers…although death rate is slowing in recent as technology and safety measures improve.) If it’s just you on a wild ride (like the vagabond motorcyclist character in Season 1) to live for the moment, okay man go for it. If you have family back home, wow this is a tough endeavor to rationalize - unless you exhibit impeccable preparation, restraint, and strategy. That “personal summit” ideal just doesn’t seem to be enough for many folks.  I look forward to fielding your comments by email on [email protected]. Keep in mind I’m a huge fan of high altitude mountaineering and the incredible adventurous spirit of people who are called to great challenges like visiting the most inhospitable places on earth. I just have to call BS on stuff like doing so with an oxygen tank on your face, being less than impeccably prepared, or soldiering on with a broken down body and putting yourself and others at peril.    TIMESTAMPS: After viewing a series on Mt. Everest, Brad comments on the stupidity of some of the participants on the climb. [01:51] The incredible human spirit and the camaraderie of those climbers is amazing but the prioritizing of the end result over sensible concerns for safety can be compared with some aspects of the lives of elite athletes. [03:22] You have a 5 percent chance of dying on your route to the summit. Above 24,000 feet bodies of the deceased, cannot be rescued [06:59] The use of bottled oxygen is cheating, according to Brad.

Breather: Diet Tips For Natural Testosterone Optimization

This breather show is all about natural testosterone optimization. This is such an important topic of interest for aging men, but also for young men too since the most recent research on this topic has been pretty disturbing—the average testosterone level for men aged 15–39 (the peak hormonal years) has been dropping by 1% per year since the 1980s! This is alarming because testosterone levels indicate a lot—your general state of metabolic health, physical fitness, performance and recovery potential, and your ability to concentrate and pursue peak performance tasks of all kinds, not just physical ones—there is a reason why Grand Master chess players actually have higher levels of testosterone after winning. Tune in to this episode to hear what has been causing this epidemic decline across the globe and for my top diet and supplement tips to naturally optimize testosterone.    LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. John Demartini: Pursuing Your "Inspired Purpose," And Why Passion and Motivation Are Overrated

I am so excited to present a second show with one of the world’s leading experts on human behavior, Dr. John Demartini. Dr. John has a new book called, The 7 Secret Treasures: A Transformational Blueprint for a Well-Lived Life, which is designed to reacquaint readers with the power they already have within, as Dr. John Demartini shows you the way to powerfully transform your life with tools and principles you can use to create your most inspiring and fulfilling life. This book will be a discovery of your authentic self and your path to your life mastery. Dr. John hits hard as usual by describing how pursuing your “passion” can actually be a bad idea, and how we also can forget about motivation when trying to live our best lives. “Anything that requires motivation, I outsource,” says Dr. John. Instead, we must honor my favorite maxim from Dr. John: “Ask yourself, What do you spontaneously do every day that brings you joy and requires no motivation?? This is what you value most highly and you must pursue in order to live as your authentic self.” Dr. John Demartini is a world-leading human behavior specialist, researcher, best-selling author, educator, and founder of the Demartini Method—a revolutionary tool in modern psychology. He has authored 40 books that have been translated into 39 different languages and presented his insights alongside some of the world’s most influential people, including Sir Richard Branson and Deepak Chopra. Dr. Demartini’s cutting-edge methods are the culmination of almost five decades of research across disciplines including physics, philosophy, theology, metaphysics, psychology, astronomy, mathematics, neurology, and physiology. He has synthesized these teachings and incorporated them into his work on human values.   My favorite Demartini-isms: “You create internal conflict with your authentic self when you traffic in thoughts and phrases like, ‘I need to, I should, I have to.’ These things require motivation, which is now turning out to be a flimsy and unreliable resource.”  “Fill your days with high-priority actions or they’ll become filled with low-priority distractions.” “If you don’t empower your life, other people will overpower you!” “If you aren’t living according to your highest values, you succumb to distraction and instant gratification (modern world!).”   TIMESTAMPS: John speaks on mastery of the mind, the seven areas of life. He has ambition to contribute in some way globally. [01:45] It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from.  Are you going to apply the things that allow you to move forward and achieve? [04:51] What would he suggest when people are stuck between what they know and desire and their actual way of accomplishing something? [07:26] At age 27 John went from being in debt to a person of considerable wealth. {11:28] What you have passion about can be suffering. [13:32] Find the thing that you are inspired to do and love doing and bring it to the world. That’s how you get fulfillment. [18:10] A successful business is customer-centric as well as employee-centric. [25:01] The seven secret treasures all boil around human values. [33:08] If you fill your day with very high priority things, it’s easy to say “no.” [37:12] When you have a goal, you need to prepare. [43:09] Weave your personal hobby that nourishes you with the meaningful things you do for others. [54:29] Find a way to get paid for what you love to do.

B.rad Podcast Highlights, Part 4

In this highlight show, we hear some stand-out quotes from past guests like Dr. Phil Maffetone (godfather of endurance training and the MAF heart rate training model), Brock Armstrong, Deirdre Fitzpatrick, William Shewfelt, and a few others topics like how to effectively change your mindset, applying cognitive behavioral therapy to pursuing practical goals, and the societal prescriptions that don’t really fit anyone. You’ll find out what it takes to train at an elite level and what are just popular misconceptions about training, what soreness does to our muscles and how long it takes for our muscles to recover, the meaning of “the window of weakness,” how to use a methodical approach to win the body of your dreams and why it’s actually easier than it seems, and more!   TIMESTAMPS: Brock Armstrong is an expert on diet, nutrition, exercise, working out but also has added cognitive behavioral therapy to his work with clients. Develop a curiosity and be willing to experiment on yourself.  [00:36] Exercising in and of itself is a very modern construct. [03:30] If you are watching a video on a technique you are learning, what should you be looking for? Why does Brad want to write books? Brock is explaining cognitive therapy. [05:42] Dr. Maffetone says the stress thing is really what it is all about. The common denominator of the causes of death from chronic diseases has to do with being overfat. [11:25] There are some misconceptions about what is required to train and perform at the elite level. [17:07] That period of time, that 24- to 72- hour period after you do strength training is a window of weakness. [20:30] Deirdre Fitzpatrick, TV news anchor, talks about balancing her demanding career with family life as well as her accomplishments in endurance sports. [22:51] William Shewfelt talks about using a methodical approach to carve out the body you want. [28:56] William’s resistance workouts are in between weight, not heavy weight, and last about 45 minutes. [33:14] Dave Scott and Mark Allen join Brad and reveal personal thoughts and experiences we’ve not known about. [35:13] Molly Downey explains the relationship between sleep and glucose. It is very common to see elevated glucose levels overnight.  [42:09] Sara Banta discovered that many of the so-called healthy foods her child was eating caused trouble. Of the family of five, she found each had a different profile of foods that they could eat. [49:27] Dr. Robert Lustig is one of the world’s pre-eminent anti-sugar crusaders. He talks about the eight pathologies that drive all chronic diseases. One thing that makes all eight go south is processed food. [56:51] Is there a potential to live to 110? The problem is, we eat crap! The food industry has us in their clutches. [01:03:30]   QUOTES: "Feed the gut and protect the liver." (Lustig) "If you simply eliminate processed foods, you cannot get fat or diseased type two diabetes".

Dave Scott: Reflections On Endurance Training, Racing, And Nutrition Over Decades

I’m catching up with the legendary Dave Scott in this episode! Dave is a 6-time Hawaii Ironman world champion and respected coach, and in this show, we talk about endurance training, savoring the small victories and not just the big ones, the importance of having hobbies and other interests, how to know when you need to cut back on training and the mental toll it takes, what he does to feel fulfilled, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: Does Dave Scott take the opportunity to reflect back on how really awesome his career at Ironman was? [02:40] Dave recalls how brutal the races were back in the day. [05:15] Is it a possibility to be a well-adjusted but extremely competitive athlete? A well-rounded athlete will have some diversions besides the striving for success in the sport. [07:57] How has the transition from the competitor on top of the field to coaching been for Dave? [12:33] Dave has had some heart concerns but keeps up a pretty good exercise regimen. You can’t go “kind of hard” all the time. [18:06] How do the athletes and equipment of today’s athletes compare with the former years? Dave thinks the new shoes should be banned! [21:49] Today’s athletes are more sensible with monitoring the hearts rates and understanding that “kind of hard” is to be modulated. [33:55] It makes no sense to run a marathon close to a week before doing Ironman. [36:35] At what point do you bestow the distinction of being fit versus someone who is less fit metabolically? [41:22] Everything varies by athlete and their goals.  What is an “easy day” of training? [44:21] A heavy diet of carbs was not optimal. Many people look thin but have lost muscle mass. [48:30] We need to regulate our metabolic rate by having a bigger block of protein, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Grazing is not as good. [51:29] It is easy to mis-estimate the amount of protein you are eating. Is there a danger in ingesting too much protein? [55:32] Today’s dietary strategy is still a mess.  [01:06:19] At the end of a tough training day, is there a justification to going and trying to maximize intake of all the macronutrients? [01:10:07] Many of the bars on the market are toxic.

Breather: Seven Steps To Self-Awareness (Dave Rossi Inspired)

This breather show is inspired by one of my favorite podcast guests (and close friends), Dave Rossi, and it’s a checklist to facilitate personal evolution, comprised of seven effective and practical tips from Dave that will take you to the next level of personal growth and self-awareness. Dave advises us to apply this checklist to as many conversations and situations as we can, as this is what will (eventually) take us to the next level of self-awareness through hard work and repetition. In this episode, I go through all seven items on the checklist, adding some color commentary throughout, and as you will hear, they’re all easy to understand and easy to implement. I can’t recommend applying these seven tips to your life (and perhaps even replaying this podcast frequently) enough—as you will see for yourself, learning how to utilize these seven steps will truly change how you perceive yourself, others, and as a result, your whole life.    Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

B.rad Podcast Highlights, Part 3

Welcome to another highlight show consisting of brief, very thoughtful, and enticing clips from previous podcast episodes. It’s been so much fun to go back and listen to these tidbits again, and the idea of these shows is simply to give you some interesting and inspiring takeaways (and hopefully you’re inspired to go back to the shows that pique your interest). You’ll hear from past guests like Tania Teschke, William Shewfelt, Dr. Mark Cucuzella, and Dr. Ron Sinha on a variety of health and wellness-related topics, such as what to look for when you get a blood test, how to get into the most effective and practical mindset when pursuing your goals, the problem with plant-based diets, how cultural trends can mess with our perspectives and feelings of happiness and worth, and much more.   TIMESTAMPS: In Brad’s discussion of highlights from previous shows, he starts out with a clip from the author of The Bordeaux Kitchen, an interesting look at ancestral health with a French flair. In this clip she is discussing the very harmful electromagnetic radiation we are experiencing.  [00:00] The WIFI is a very strong signal and should be turned off at night.  [03:20] What is the difference between orange and blue light use? [05:11] William Shewfelt energizes you with describing his life goals and how to achieve them.[07:07] Dr. Ron Siniha’s clips from the podcast looks at blood markers and what they mean. Looking at triglycerides to HDL ratio is very important. [14:13] Tippy Wyatt’s interesting life led her from refugee camp to college educated Asian Keto cookbook author. [20:09] Dr. Mark Cucuzzella talks about how plant-based propaganda has infiltrated medical school education. [25:56] Dr. Cate Shanahan says your body gets damaged when it tries to burn fat. [31:50] Dr. Cate also challenges conventional medical wisdom. “If the American Heart Association says it's healthy, it's probably a red flag.” [38:06] Luke Shanahan talks about cultural trends. He’s looks at attitudes towards wealth vis. Success of accomplishment.  [42:34] Dr. Phil Maffetone talks about balancing stress and rest successfully.

Breather: Carnivore Scores Chart - Quick Overview

This quick breather show is all about the Carnivore Scores Food Ranking chart (available by free download on my website, BradKearns.com). Hopefully, after listening to this show you will feel inspired to print it out and tape it onto your refrigerator to ensure your diet always emphasizes the most nutritious foods on earth. In this episode, I walk you through every element of the chart, share how I prepare different foods, and explain why I decided to add certain things to the “Global All-Stars” part of the list. I also talk about how dairy products factor into the chart, the differences among the many varieties of fish, and the exciting emerging research about the benefits of creatine for protecting brain neurons against age-related damage.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page The New Carnivore Scores Chart   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Mia Moore #3: Intro To Ancestral Eating And Shattering Flawed Conventional Wisdom

It’s been a long time since Mia Moore was last on the show (listen to her previous appearances, Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff, Becoming More Conscious In Relationships and How To Be More Chill from the expert herself here) and today we will be focusing on a question I have received numerous times over the years: what to do when one person in a relationship is more devoted or interested in ancestral eating than the other? How do you get them into it? As you’ll hear Mia explain in this episode, you can’t—because when it comes to any type of diet or major life change, the person has to be ready to do it. “It has to come from them” according to Mia. She talks about her health journey, sharing what foods she eliminated first, the ingredient she loves too much to cut out entirely, how her diet has changed since meeting Brad, and advice for getting loved ones interested in eating healthily.   TIMESTAMPS:  For a person to change the eating patterns, they have to be ready to do it. [01:50] The first step is getting rid of the oils and sodas, processed foods from your kitchen. [04:23] “Eating in moderation” is often used as an excuse to eat some of the wrong things that are driven by marketing forces. [06:58] Anyone who takes a step away from unfettered access to indulgent foods is going to have a huge health awakening, [11:15] If your sleep habits are not good…if you stay up late, it is easy to get the munchies and go for the junk foods. [16:10] The standard western diet has been a widespread dismal failure resulting in the fattest sickest population in the history of humanity. [19:29] Why is cereal the breakfast food that is so common? When the tobacco companies began getting criticized, they bought many of the major food companies and continued the same advertising methods. [22:18] Our ancestors ate meat, fish, fowl, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Grains appeared with the advent of civilization. [25:30] Grains are a staple around the world and have been for hundreds of years. [30:53] Of course, as we try to emulate some of the features of ancestral living, we need to adapt to modern times. [32:38] It is very important to consume the food that is produced in a healthy manner like pasture-raised chickens and eggs. [35:42] Some people exploring the carnivore diet, are fighting autoimmune diseases. [39:10] In raw form, plant toxins are especially concerning. [40:21] Your health is greatly affected by diet, but you must also look at the sleep and exercise patterns. [43:57] Doctors are not there to be health and nutrition counselors, but sometimes they give advice in that area that may not be well-founded. [46:44] The changes in modern society of having two parents working and more activities outside the home has made junk food almost obliterate the home cooked meals. [51:11] In summary, look at what you can adapt from the evolutionary diet and get more movement in general. The path to fitness is not necessarily a struggle.

Breather: What Brad Eats In A Day

By popular request, today’s breather show is an overview of what I eat in a day! While my diet is not super exciting or full of a ton of variety, I have locked into a pattern that works for me (while always remaining open-minded in case any changes are necessary—hence no more fasting, more carbs, fruit, and calories in general!). As you will hear, my focus these days is entirely on performance and recovery, so I have made adjustments here and there to my diet in order to support my performance and recovery goals as I strive towards maximum cellular energy status at all times. I talk about how and why my historical eating pattern has dramatically changed, share my favorite breakfast smoothie recipe, and explain how getting expert advice from Marek Health really helped me hone in on the best supplements for my system (many of which I now include daily in my breakfast smoothie). You will also hear what I eat for lunch and dinner, how I prepare it, if I still eat as much chocolate as I used to, and my current stance on eating restaurant food.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Brad: Five Tips To Aging Gracefully, Part 5 - Dial In Stress Management

Welcome to the fifth and final episode in this series covering 5 tips to age gracefully and optimize energy and body composition. In this show, we will be talking about stress management and putting all the pieces from previous shows together. You will learn about healthy sleep habits and why sleep is so important, as well as how to create a stress-free, sanctuary in your bedroom. You’ll also hear useful tips for managing stress and learn why your mattress temperature can actually change the way you sleep, and how being in a healthy relationship can contribute to stress management.   TIMESTAMPS: Brad reminds us of the points covered in the previous podcast on slowing aging. Clean diet and movement are the most important ones. [01:10] Stress management is critical if all your other efforts at fitness are going to work. Avoid overly stressful workouts. [04:31] Avoid stressful work habits at your job. You don’t need to engage in your screen first thing in the morning. [09:05] Most people don’t give sleep the importance it deserves. Create a sanctuary from the stress that is your bedroom. [15:07] The key to good sleep is a cool room temperature, cool mattress temperature, maintained the whole night instead of your body warming up the mattress temperature and then creating an overly warm environment. [18:52] Another component of a good night’s sleep is the winding down rituals you have prior to bedtime. [20:52] Rest, recovery, and downtime which means getting rid of your mobile device. [22:23] A healthy relationship is a big part of your stress management.

Breather: Rethinking Ancestral Obsessions And What's Optimal Vs. What's Possible

The ancestral health movement has exploded over the past decade and more, and while it’s wonderful to see people raising their awareness of our genetic expectations for health, one thing has been on my mind a lot lately, which is this obsession people have with the ancestral model and how this can possibly be taken to the extreme and deliver adverse results. I do want to validate the ancestral model (especially when it pertains to cleaning up our act amidst the challenges and influences of modern life!), but this episode will focus on the urgent need and obsession many have with modeling the ancestral example—to the extent that we inappropriately apply the philosophy or the strategy to the realities of hectic, high-stress modern life. In this show, you will learn all about these so-called hormetic stressors and what happens when we try to stack them on top of the already busy canvas created by the many forms of chronic stress that exist in modern life. This episode is not about going off the grid and unplugging completely—instead, you will learn how to develop an awareness of what we need to watch out for (like endocrine disruptors in our environment, the chronic stress that comes from pursuing a career in our modern, technology-driven world, long hours spent in front of a screen, and more) and how these factors affect our bodies if still follow the philosophy that we need to go sprint, do a ton of cardio and fast just like our ancestors did, as well as consume no fruit throughout the winter and practice daily cold plunges.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Dr. Jannine Krause: What's Up With Acupuncture?

Have you ever wondered what’s up with acupuncture? That is the title of a wonderful new book by my friend, Dr. Jannine Krause, an acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioner. It is so beneficial for all of us to learn more about medicine, specifically beyond Western medicine, and Dr. Jannine does an incredible job harmonizing the two as you will hear in this show. You will learn all about this incredible treatment that has been around for thousands of years, how acupuncture affects anxiety, her thoughts on parasympathetic breathing, and much more! Dr. Jannine also shares some free, quick tidbits that you can use to learn how to effectively work with pressure points yourself at home.   TIMESTAMPS: How does acupuncture work on the body? [02:41] What are the most common conditions for which folks use acupuncture? [05:09] Circulation is the number one problem in someone’s body. [08:11] Anxiety is often treated with acupuncture.  How does that work for mental health? [09:51] Other than popping an ibuprofen, what can be done for headaches? [15:25] What about stomach pain? [17:42] How is acupuncture able to cause such deep relaxation? [20:11] How does our mind get in the way of our healing? [26:27] If a person believes acupuncture is going to work, it should work even after the first or second treatment. [30:44] Parasympathetic breathing helps you come down off a workout and begin the recovery process. [35:20] There is research in understanding how to manipulate the microbiome in the gut. [39:09] Don’t guzzle water while you are eating. It damages your enzymes.

Breather: Reasons For The Modern Epidemic Decline In Testosterone

We have a big problem in modern life: the epidemic decline in the average testosterone level in males. Research from around the globe has confirmed this is a global problem—the average testosterone level has been declining at a rate of 1% per year since the 1980s. That means your testosterone level is 40% below what your grandpa’s was at your age! As you will learn during this episode, there are many reasons for this decline, and this show will give you the tools you need to fight this battle and rise above the stats, instead of going down the slippery slope into accelerated aging.  LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page Key (and Surprising!)

Brad: Five Tips To Aging Gracefully, Part 4 - Integrate Brief, Intense Exercise

Welcome to part 4 of this series covering 5 essential tips for aging gracefully and optimizing energy and body composition. Hopefully you’ve been listening since the start—in part 1 we talked about eliminating processed, nutrient-deficient foods from your diet, and in part 2 we talked about emphasizing the most nutrient-dense, easy to digest foods to drive for maximum cellular energy status at all times. In part 3 we talked about increasing all forms of general everyday movement (walking, taking quick breaks from work and integrating a variety of other forms of movement in your day) and in part 4, we focus on the best ways to integrate exercise, especially brief, intense workouts. This is a fundamental law of nature—you have to challenge your body through explosive efforts on a regular basis, otherwise it will literally shrivel up and send you into a tailspin of accelerated aging. Sadly this has become so commonplace that we see aging as this steady, accelerated decline over decades, so one important takeaway from this show is that merely moving more in everyday life will bring you more health and longevity benefits than adhering to a devoted fitness regimen. Of course this is not the whole picture, but considering how common Active Couch Potato Syndrome is, this is an important perspective shift—to realize how much just moving around more in everyday life will affect your longevity. Let’s embrace the idea that we can move into the later decades of life still feeling athletic, energetic, and maintaining a healthy and impressive body composition! This episode will share how you can do this, reveal the number one cause for age-related decline, and much more to help you age as gracefully as possible.   TIMESTAMPS: Brad reminds us what the first three parts of his anti-aging podcasts covered. [0:59] The Active Couch Potato Syndrome describes a person who exercises but is inactive the rest of the time. [02:18] One of the main killers and the main causes of accelerated decline is the loss of muscle mass, and you can do so much about that at any age. [04:11] Brief intense exercise is put into two categories. One is resistance training. [07:38] The Big Five Workout protects you from over-training and is not time-consuming. [12:05] Brief sprinting periods can be developed by gradually adding difficulty. The rest in between sprints is of critical importance. [16:02] Micro workouts can be done at home or office with little equipment.

Alex Hutchinson: Exploring The Limits Of Human Athletic Performance

Welcome to a fast-moving and interesting conversation with Alex Hutchinson, author of the book Endure. Alex is a popular columnist for Outside Magazine, covering topics related to sweat science, and is an expert on the scientific aspects of peak performance and human limitations, especially relating to endurance. He recounts his extraordinary story at the start of the show, sharing the amazing breakthroughs he’s made in his career as a middle distance runner in college, and you won’t believe some of the memorable insights he presents, many of which I’m still thinking about today. In this episode, we get into all kinds of topics like the popular Central Governor Theory, promoted by Dr. Timothy Noakes, who proposed that the brain is the true limiter of peak performance, not fatigue, talk about the ultimate limits of human performance, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: The brain is the true limiter of peak performance, not fatigue. [00:46] Alex has an amazing story of how he became a 4-minute distance runner. [03:59] His progress was at an unheard-of pace. [15:56] It is hard for endurance athletes to buy into the idea that our mindset is holding us back. [20:06] What is the ideal competitive disposition? The cocky “I can win” and the “I don’t belong here” are at both ends of the spectrum. [24:38] Alex thinks genetics had very little to do with his ability as a runner. [35:45] Is there such a thing as fear of success in these athletes? What you say to yourself makes a big impact. [40:55] It is difficult to distinguish between the discomfort or pain of effort and the discomfort of an injury. [48:14] Do the coaches need to do something different when an athlete gets injured? [51:58] No one is going to break records by large amounts. [58:43] Alex is moderately optimistic on doping.

Brad: Five Tips To Aging Gracefully, Part 3 - Increase General Everyday Movement

Welcome to part three of this series as we continue to discuss five main tips to aging gracefully and optimizing energy and body composition. We covered diet big-time in the first two parts of this series, and in part three, we focus on the critical objective to move more and strategies to increase general everyday movement, which experts say is a more important objective than adhering to a devoted exercise regimen. You will hear about the dangers of what Katy Bowman has coined “lazy athlete mentality”, what happens to your body when you over exercise, and much more! Stay tuned for part four!    TIMESTAMPS: Move more frequently. Even if you exercise regularly, the amount of sedentary time you have can negate your fitness. [01:14] Your body does not like to become exhausted and depleted by excess energy expenditure in the form of an overly stressful exercise regimen. [03:49] Kaiser Family Foundation’s study shows a correlation between kids’ fitness levels and academic performance. [06:52] There is research showing that what you do first thing in the morning has the most powerful effects. [14:51] The brain research suggests that we can only truly concentrate on a peak cognitive task for around 20 minutes at a time before we zone out. [16:50] You don’t need a gym to stay fit. [19:00] You need a comfortably-paced cardio vascular routine. Keep it under your maximum aerobic heartrate.  [21:43] Sit on the floor instead of a chair. Move your workspace into different positions.

Breather: Second Guessing Fasting

If you have been listening to the B.rad podcast this year, you know I’ve been second guessing the role of fasting for healthy, energetic folks. Fasting offers a tremendous amount of health benefits, but if many (if not most) of the health benefits are incidental, can fasting still be considered a worthwhile practice?

Cynthia Thurlow And Joy Kong: A Deep Discussion On Diet, Fasting, Longevity, Mindset, And Personal Growth

Get ready for a fantastic long-form conversation with Dr. Joy Kong and Cynthia Thurlow! It was such a pleasure to sit down for a fire-side style, three-way chat to discuss all kinds of topics with these two powerhouse women. I’m trying to be more bold and daring as the host of the B.rad podcast, including going for some long-form, in person interviews, as I think it is the best chance to get truly breakthrough insights. This is proving to be true; throughout this conversation, I got to know Cynthia and Dr. Joy on a deeper level than remote podcast engagements where you stick to the key talking points in the guest’s area of expertise. Same for going to visit Gabby Reece at her home—you connect on a deeper level and the conversation takes interesting twists and turns. This episode features some deep discussions around some pretty heavy, real topics, as Dr. Joy and Cynthia open up and share personal stories that will inspire you and get you thinking, and we also  cover many important and relevant health topics. You will hear Cynthia explain how being in the hospital with complications from an emergency surgery ended up changing her life, and Dr. Joy talks about her experience growing up in a high-pressure, high expectations culture in China and how this shaped her, as well as how she maintains a healthy work-life balance today as she pursues her goals. We also spend a long time discussing the role of protein in a healthy diet and compare and contrast the different popular diets today. Cynthia Thurlow is a nurse practitioner, author of the best selling book Intermittent Fasting Transformation, a 2x TEDx speaker, and the host of Everyday Wellness Podcast. With over 20 years experience in health and wellness, Cynthia is a globally recognized expert in intermittent fasting and women’s health, and her mission is to educate women on the benefits of intermittent fasting and overall holistic health and wellness, so they feel empowered to live their most optimal lives.  Dr. Joy Kong is a UCLA-trained, triple board-certified physician, anti-aging and stem cell specialist, educator, and CEO. As the founder of Uplyft Longevity Center in Chatsworth, CA, she focuses her efforts on the prevention of aging, as well as chronic diseases that no one else has been able to heal. She believes that complete healing can only come from looking at the whole person - mind, body, and soul.    TIMESTAMPS: The two women discuss their transformation from traditional medicine to more enlightened patient care and education. [05:43] Helping people stay well is very bad for the pharmaceutical business. [09:03] If a patient would eat properly, lower carbs and eat more protein, get good sleep, and move, they wouldn’t need so many medications. [11:31] We’ve made it hard for people to make changes. Watch your spending habits and prioritize healthy eating. [14:05] There is much misinformation dispensed by well-meaning people that causes confusion. [17:09] How much protein should we be eating? [19:06] Muscle mass and muscle strength are the key to hanging in there a long time. [25:35] If you are a fan of fasting, it is difficult to get enough protein. [29:39] There are so many schools of thought about high carb, low carb, high fat, low fat, plant, carnivore, etc. The starting point, regardless of what school you are in, is to get rid of the crap in your diet. [32:06] Many people just get accustomed to feeling poorly.  They don’t know what it feels like to be healthy. [37:41] Do men and women fast differently? Women under age 35 should use caution with fasting. [38:38] What role do carbs play? It’s very individual experiment.  “How do I feel?” is a good monitor. [45:16] What is a good window for intermittent fasting? [55:19] All those restrictive diets, fasting, keto, low carb, etc. are in the category of stressors. We live in a very stressful society. [01:01:32] It’s a constant effort to find balance. It’s important to be introspective about your life, to figure out what you want, who you really are. [01:12:40] Goal setting can help envision where you want to go in the future, and imagine how it feels. If we get comfortable, we don’t grow.  [01:24:58] Some people are constantly giving and not advocating for themselves. [01:32:52] When people are disconnected and feel unloved, feel unworthy, they experience more negativity.   [01:38:29] Set the bar really low so you can get over it and then keep raising the bar. [01:40:23] The best thing you can do as a parent is love your kids. [01:46:11] Vegetables have always been promoted as the super nutrient, however, there are many problems that can play havoc on your gut. [01:53:00] Don’t obsess with the caveman example.

Brad: Five Tips To Aging Gracefully, Part 2 - Eat Nutrient-Dense, Easy-To-Digest Foods

In part two of this series all about aging as gracefully as possible and optimizing energy and body composition, we focus on food. This episode covers all the most nutrient-dense and easy-to-digest foods as well as the foods that have no place in a healthy diet, and I reveal the number one objective of a healthy diet, as well as why many people experience adverse reactions to seemingly healthy plant foods. I share which foods are the easiest to digest while also being incredibly nutrient dense, talk about the changes I’ve made to my diet and what I have been eating recently, and share the one practice that is key to aging gracefully.    TIMESTAMPS: It is so expensive to care for the unhealthy US population, it is said, that it will bankrupt the US treasury by the year 2060. [00:56] The number one objective is to ditch refined industrial seed oils, refined grains and sugars. [02:07] Some of the plant superstars can cause problems due to reactions to the natural plant toxins. [07:40] Emphasize nutrient-dense food that are easy to digest. [11:16] Brad has now switched from fasting until midday to starting the morning with protein and fruit and his nutritious smoothie. [12:35] Maintaining functional muscle strength, muscle mass throughout life is the key to aging gracefully.

Mark Sisson: Reconciling Metabolic Flexibility With The Fully Fueled Approach

Mark Sisson joins me to discuss my recent reflections on the fundamental principles of ancestral health, metabolic flexibility, why any form of exercise counts as cardio, and the greatest misconceptions about ‘calories in, calories out.’ We talk about time-restricted feeding, training, glycogen and increasing carb consumption, and if there is an optimal number or range of calories you should take in every day. Mark also touches on why he describes his diet as “keto-ish” and not as fully keto, reveals what the ultimate “Ancestral skill” is, and explains the importance of looking at your meals granularly when you’re in performance mode.   TIMESTAMPS: Basic metabolism works pretty much in alignment in all of us.  [01:40] Is it as simple as calories in, calories out? [05:09] Brad is enjoying his recent change in eating by consuming food in the morning instead of fasting and eating more fruit. [07:16] The extra carbs that Brad is taking in have not added fat to his body. If one is consuming extra calories than one needs, the body adjusts to burn the excess calories. [11:11] What is enough movement? What is enough protein intake? Our ancestors were focused on survival, not performance. [15:50] We are wired to overeat. You need to be intuitive. [21:09] Time restricted feeding’s benefit is that you are not consuming unnecessary calories. Eat the most amount of nutritious food that you can without gaining extra body fat. [25:00] There has to be a balance in your athletic goals and how you want to live your life. [27:44] Overdoing your exercise is antithetical to longevity.  Eat more nutritious food (mostly protein) and move more. [39:46] You can’t fix a bad diet with portion control. [43:24] What about thyroid function? [44:40] What does Mark’s future look like as far as his exercise routine goes?

Brad: Five Tips To Aging Gracefully, Part 1 - Clean Up Your Diet

In this episode, I put together five simple, practical tips to age gracefully and optimize energy and body composition. I’m recording this on the heels of a lot of Energy Balance commentary— my interviews with Jay Feldman and multi-part reflections on the Energy Balance concept: the idea that we want our body functioning at maximum energy production at all times so that we can feel naturally energetic and active throughout the day. We want all our dials turned up at maximum—this includes metabolic dials, processing energy efficiently so we can perform workouts and stay active and energetic throughout the day, rather than dragging ourselves through life and feeling that constant, lingering fatigue—which comes from having inferior energy production and inferior energy balance.  How does that happen—how do we even get into this situation in the first place? As you will hear in this episode, it comes from prolonged periods of stillness (which actually makes you more tired) and a lack of fitness in general. In this show, I talk about how energy is a renewable resource, explain how exercise actually makes you a more energetic person, and share ways you can actually become a more energetic person. I also share the #1 longevity factor and talk about what lean muscle mass indicates about your health, highlight the problems that come with losing muscle mass as you age, and reveal the secret to truly aging gracefully.    TIMESTAMPS: We want our bodies to be functioning at maximum energy production at all times. Too much stillness will actually make you more tired. [01:02] It has become normal to assume that with aging comes accelerated decline and demise. [04:09] Consuming processed food will lead to lifelong insidious weight gain. Get rid of toxic modern foods. [06:14] Your choice of olive oil should be Extra Virgin First Pressed Domestic olive oil. Avocado oil is a good alternative, however, beware that all avocado oils are not created equal. [13:32] Refined sugars and grains are nutrient deficient and prompt many physical problems. [16:46] Another food elimination to consider is foods that are high in natural plant toxins. [18:04] Most commercial nuts like cashews, almonds, and such can be poisonous until they are processed. [23:00] Even if you have a gluten-free diet, you can still ingest many other things that have a similar effect. [28:29]   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page Why We Get Fat Primal Kitchen Olive Oil Lovers Club Monterey Bay Acquarium.org Food Lies film   QUOTES: “Not only are these plant superstars unnecessary and pale in comparison when it comes to the nutrient density of animal foods, they can also be potentially problematic.” “Soaking, sprouting, fermenting and cooking neutralizes plant toxins—this is why humans have been doing this for many years!” "Gluttony and sloth are not the causes of obesity; they are the symptoms."   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @brad.kearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Is Brad Natty Or Not? The Truth Revealed!—Part 2 (Breather Episode with Brad)

Welcome to part two of the “Is Brad Natty Or Not?” presentation. In part one, I covered my background in athletics and my decision to operate from a squeaky clean baseline dating back to my professional triathlete career. In part two, I present an assortment of practical tips to optimize testosterone naturally, in the categories of: Sleep, rest, recovery, and down time Increasing all forms of general everyday movement Performing regular strength training sessions with brief, explosive movements Sprinting the right way to gain incredible hormonal benefits Diet: prioritize protein, eat nutrient-dense foods, eliminate processed foods Supplements: whey, creatine, MOFO, animal organs, and a few potential others You’ll learn why creatine is so essential for everyone (not just athletes) when it comes to muscle strength, performance, recovery, and even protecting brain neurons from age related damage, how to get more creatine into your diet, the important role supplements like boron and Vitamin D play in testosterone optimization (plus alternative and effective ways of increasing Vitamin D), and the benefits of prioritizing protein, specifically whey protein.   TIMESTAMPS: In learning to optimize our lifestyle behaviors, we cover sleep habits, rest, recovery, diet, supplementation and movement. [01:02} Getting the best sleep is the most important of all healthy lifestyle objectives. [02:58] Regular everyday movement is essential.  As little as 20 minutes of sitting still will deliver decrease in glucose tolerance and an increase in insulin resistance. Micro-workouts are a tremendous benefit. [08:05] High intensity strength training is an overall benefit to add to the movement. [11:44] CrossFit and boot camp are healthy and build fitness but you do need to use caution. [15:50] Sprinting has the greatest return on investment. Full impact running sprints on flat ground are the best kind of sprints. [19:19] You should avoid chronic exercise. Stress hormones antagonize testosterone. [23:49] Diet is always a concern.  You want a protein-centric nutrient-dense diet that has eliminated processed foods. [25:27] Supplements have the potential to keep you in an optimal state. [29:13] Beside the animal organ supplements, we need to look at the need for Vitamin D, magnesium, and boron. [36:41] Brad is 100 percent natural.

Monique Billings: Finding Balance And Finding A Way To Get It Done - In Basketball, And In Life

Sportscaster, social media influencer, global keynote speaker, and author Monique Billings joins me to discuss finding balance, finding effective ways to get it done (in life and in sports), and her first book, Finding Balance—A Playbook for Wellness. She shares lessons she has learned about patience, what taught her to finally trust the process and let go, and talks about the monastic process of writing her book. Monique also highlights the interesting contrast between her background as a young athlete, which taught her to train her mind, but not her body, and explains why she prioritizes being super cognizant of what she takes in mentally, physically, and spirituality. She also offers some great advice about getting back to yourself when you’re in a slump and not feeling like your best self and talks about why learning to train your mind is key to being able to figure out your identity outside of what you do.   TIMESTAMPS: Monique is a star basketball play and an author talking about her journey. [00:18] As a young athlete, she was taught how to train her body but not taught how to train her mind. Monique gives much credit to her experience at UCLA. [03:15] As a young person, 18- to 21-year-old range, it is the time to figure out who you are.  There is so much attention on you as a young athlete. [07:22] Figuring out who you are outside your sport is so important. [10:37] What were the obstacles she had to overcome on the way to becoming a basketball prodigy? [11:00] There is a lot of politics behind the scenes of the recruiting and scouting. [15:11] Just put in the work and don’t get so attached to the resulting outcome. [16:28] That good athlete finds a winning formula in many different areas of life, not just focusing on the one sport. [19:56] What is Monique’s future dream? How does her typical day go as she coordinates her hobbies and goals into the mix? [22:52] In off-season, many WNBA players play overseas.  Monique has played in ten countries if the last five years.

Is Brad Natty Or Not? The Truth Revealed! - Part 1 (Breather Episode with Brad)

It’s time to put an end to the controversy, confusion, suspicion, admiration, and speculation and come clean. The rumor-mongers who have been saying, “How can this guy jump that high, run that fast, be that ripped, talk that fast on his podcast, jump that high, and still be natural at the age of 57?”   Fair question, and I’ve mustered up the courage to answer with complete honesty and transparency: I am 100% natural, always have been, and always will…keep an open mind about the future (as detailed in my recent podcast episode.) I’m also pretty gullible as I strongly believed Lance Armstrong as well as Liver King—thinking their incredible athleticism and devotion to training made it theoretically possible...but not as possible as I thought. I also dislike making accusations without conclusive proof, so I feel like we are compelled to give people the benefit of the doubt…until the circumstantial evidence mounts and mounts. I also give credit to investigative journalists, those who speak their truth with an informed opinion, and those involved in the anti-doping movement in elite international sports.  In part one of this two part show, I’ll detail my history as an elite triathlete who competed under international anti-doping rules and was tested a ton of times; the influence of doping during my time as a racer and how it evolved to today’s dynamics; how I formulated my values and beliefs about operating from squeaky clean model to allow my body to naturally perform, develop, and recover, without inference from even stuff like caffeine nor NSAIDS; and how I continue to operate from this natural model today, until further notice. I also provide blood test results for numerous male hormone panels that I’ve run over the past seven years. Share questions and comments by emailing [email protected] and stay tuned for part 2, where I will detail a bunch of ways to optimize testosterone naturally!   TIMESTAMPS: Can you live “naturally” and still consider hormone replacement therapy? [01:15] In both males and females, maintaining muscle tone and having energy, focus, motivation, sex drive, are highly dependent on optimizing one's testosterone level. [03:34] Liver King Johnson’s recent admissions of steroid use should not take away from the hard work he has done to promote his ancestral lifestyle. [06:40] Some people have genetic attributes without doping. A good performance doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is doping. [09:25] Wrongly accusing one person out of 50 is a disgrace. Wait for further notice. [13:20] There is even talk about legalizing performance enhancing drugs under physician care. [14:36] There is a morality issues involved in this use of performance-enhancing drugs of what kind of athlete you want to be.  [16:18] When Brad was a pro triathlete, he was of the belief that the best long-term results would come from being drug free. [23:42] The only time Brad would rationalize drug intervention would be for extreme infection or pain. [28:43] Every single prescription drug has certain side effects that will require you to have a less stressful training regimen in order to cope with the outside intervention. [30:39] Brad explains what to look for when you get your blood tests. Tracking your serum T is the best way to monitor your hormone status. [32:06] Prescription drugs treat the symptom rather than the cause. Look at other areas of your lifestyle that you could improve before you get the prescription.

More Commentary On Hormone Therapy, Performance Enhancing Drugs, Cheating, Optimizing, and Morality (Breather Episode with Brad)

Today’s show centers around the hot topic of performance enhancing drugs, testosterone replacement therapy, doping, cheating, and optimizing your lifestyle before considering hormone replacement therapy. The Liver King controversy isn’t going away anytime soon, and the prevalence of this issue right now has caused me to reflect on something I have had a lot of strong opinions about my whole life—not only due to my history as a competitive athlete, but also because testosterone replacement therapy is becoming ever more popular, especially for males in my age group. At this time, I’m still clinging to the purist mentality I’ve carried with me my whole life, especially dating back to my days as a professional triathlete (a time I assumed most of my competitors were playing in a clean way [mostly true]. This was also a time before the major red blood cell boosting drug EPO rose to prominent use in endurance sports. This transformed elite endurance sports because EPO delivers a scientifically-validated 6% advantage; a performance boost so extreme that it basically compelled widespread use in the "dirty" sports just to remain competitive. In this episode, I take a look at all sides of the issue, particularly with public misperception about drug cheating in sports, the need to optimize all elements of your lifestyle before considering hormone replacement, and the difference between abusing PED (performance enhancing drugs) and utilizing them in a therapeutic way. I talk about the mainstream perspective of PED as dangerous and whether these warnings have been sensationalized and overblown and share my personal philosophy towards this topic. I also share my thoughts on the rising popularity of microdosing testosterone and other modern high-tech interventions and keeping an open-mind on this topic. When is it necessary for us to loosen up on our obsession with ancestral living in pursuit of modern strategies that will help us achieve wholly modern fitness/athletic goals? When is it appropriate to consider interventions like hormone replacement therapy, and finally, if lifestyle interventions will ultimately always yield the best results.   TIMESTAMPS: The hot topic of performance-enhancing drugs, testosterone replacement therapy, doping and cheating are on Brad’s mind. [01:11] Currently we see wide spread use of EPO in endurance sports. [02:06] The athlete in a drug-laden professional sport is faced with three choices. [04:29] The use of performance enhancing drugs is pervasive. [08:08] Hormone replacement therapy is good for advanced aged group but is filtering down to young people in their 20s. [13:41] During Brad’s racing career, he opted to be free of any outside intervention because he wanted to feel what his current state of readiness and recovery was. [14:59] Abuse of any drugs is dangerous. [18:10] Brad’s aversion to outside intervention includes healing from surgeries. [20:41] A lot of the prescription drugs and the massive profits the drug companies make comes from relief of symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of the problem. [24:46] Exhaust all possible natural strategies before you even form the thought of bringing in outside intervention into your physiology. [27:40] If you're training at the elite level in professional triathlon or CrossFit games like the most extreme athletes are doing, those performance enhancing drugs are possibly minimizing the adverse health consequences of the extreme regimen that you are performing. [37:27] There is a lot of research going on looking at testosterone replacement therapy for prostate cancer patients that might prove interesting.  [40:28] The only justification for someone who's not already in pretty good health and fitness level to try a hormone replacement is to give a temporary boost so that you will have the energy to start doing some exercise, start doing some resistance training, start walking in order to change your body chemistry.

Liver King Steroid Scandal: Apologies, Messy Details, & The Importance Of A Big Picture Perspective

Time for me to weigh in about the Liver King controversy, in light of the Nov, 2022 revelation (from leaked email documents presented in a YouTube video by Derek More Plates More Dates) linking Liver King to the use of PEDs (performance enhancing drugs) - something the Internet hatahs have long suspected him of, and that he has repeatedly point-blank denied. Liver King and his brand are into some sh*t for sure, but it’s important to appreciate the complexity and the nuances of this Internet scandal. Here I go with my take - some brief highlights: *Apology: Liver King owes a big one, and ideally a detailed one, to the public for being deceptive and misleading at point blank range. We deserve to get authenticity from public figures. *Boo Hoo: If you complain that he used his physique to deceive you into buying his supplements, you’re a dummy. Get a life, get in shape, quit bein’ a hatah *Perspective: I don’t see a USA on his singlet (since he’s always shirtless!) - he’s not an Olympic or pro athlete violating anti-doping rules. He’s playing an extreme character on the Internet - a character designed to shock, educate, motivate and inspire. *Regimen: I assure you the Liver King lifestyle we see is legit. This guy trains, eats and lives in an extreme, intense, and competitive manner. He lives the 9 Ancestral Tenets for sure. He is pushing the boundaries of peak performance every day in every way, including it seems with the drug regimen. Ironically, he was pretty jacked before his apparently recent start on the program—really didn’t need it! *Messy: Who the heck leaked confidential emails? Not impressed. Why would close associate Dr. Paul Saladino go nuts flaming him on IG instead of speaking to him directly and privately? BTW, I had an extensive private conversation with Liver King before publishing this. In summary, let’s continue to demand authenticity and scrutinize public figures, but also understand and respect the importance of maintaining a healthy perspective, minding our own business when necessary, and filtering out what content is useful and rejecting the hype and drama—of which we have plenty in everyday life.   LINKS: Brad Kearns.com Brad’s Shopping page   Join Brad for more fun on: Instagram: @bradkearns1 Facebook: @bradkearnsjumphigh Twitter: @bradleykearns YouTube: @BradKearns TikTok: @bradkearns   We appreciate all feedback, and questions for Q&A shows, emailed to [email protected].

Meet The Meat Mafia: Cleaning Up Your Diet And Rejecting Conventional Wisdom

It’s time to talk to the Meat Mafia! I have two very interesting guests today—Harrison Gray (Clemenza) and Brett Sollozo, the hosts of the Meat Mafia podcast.​​ These Twitter sensations have been doing a fantastic job enthusiastically spreading the word (especially to their younger demographic) about cleaning up your diet, focusing on nutrient density, and second guessing the industrialized food system and the misinformation we’ve been presented about it through their podcast. You’ll hear Brett and Clemenza talk about the events that led to their health awakening, how the health problems Brett faced in his youth ended up leaving him hospitalized (plus many expensive treatments), the extreme endurance goals they are now both pursuing, and the food they use to fuel these endeavors. You will hear about the exact foods they eat in their thoughtful and intentional diet, and some may surprise you (hint: a certain type of fruit juice gets on the list!), the core tenants of the Meat Mafia lifestyle, and much more!   TIMESTAMPS: The Meat Mafia guys started at a young age to realize that animal-based diet was the healthiest for them. [00:53] Their mission is to question what has gone wrong with the food system and how to create some sustainable solutions to make people healthier. [05:15] Brett had a terrible physical problem when only 21 years old.  Being told he would be on medication forever prompted him to investigate a healthier diet. [06:55] Was it the processed foods or the plants taking him down? You can be eating well and then lifestyle can change and you go back to what is not good. [10:11] The Meat Mafia is really connecting with people in their age group to educate them on how to enjoy preparing their own real food. [15:19] It is so easy to get drawn into the hyper palatable foods in the inner aisles of the market. Most super markets have about 33,000 products controlled by about 10 companies!  They know how to draw you in. [19:23] When we are used to some foods, it is difficult to change, but it doesn’t take long to lose the craving when you know it is not good for you. Your taste buds do evolve. [22:40] Your mentality can be hijacked. [24:29] Anyone who suffers from a physical ailment owes it to themself to embark on diet experimentation. [26:46] Learning to cook your own healthy meals can turn into a very exciting hobby. [30:27] Your environment is very important in keeping you on track. [32:55] Harry and Brett were baseball players.  How did they jump into deep endurance? [35:30] What are some insights they have learned from their guests? [47:59] What does the regenerative farming mean? [52:52] Some farming can be done carbon negative. [56:17] Mono cropping agriculture, factory farming, is a great contributor to the environmental problem.

What Brad Eats In A Day (Breather Episode with Brad)

This show is inspired by the recent questions I have been receiving about my daily diet. 2022 has been a year of changes in my philosophy and critical thinking, leading me to second guess some of the foundational elements of the ancestral health movement, and accordingly, embarking on an experiment to modify my long time dietary practices, such as fasting in the morning and watching my caloric intake to maintain health and body composition. I started playing around with different methods, making an effort to consume more daily calories and finding that it actually resulted in positive changes. You will hear about all the differences I have noticed since I started eating differently (and more!), what consuming carbs in the morning does to your stress hormone response, and what I eat in a typical day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in detail.   TIMESTAMPS: In the past six months, Brad has changed from partially fasting until noon to eating significantly more calories. Brad has done some critical thinking about some of the foundational elements of the ancestral health movement. [00:19] Consuming some carbs first thing in the morning will turn down the stress hormone response which is widely regarded as a desirable way to wake up in the morning.  [01:14] A big bowl of fruit in the morning is sometimes followed by an egg dish. Few vegetables are in Brad’s diet.  [06:03] Even though Brad has been eating more calories, his body weight remains the same. [09:46] Fasting does have some benefits like just keeping you away from the things that are not good for you like nutrient deficient foods. [11:58] Brad’s early morning smoothie with lots of fruit, frozen liver and bone broth starts his day with a bang.  {13:05] We have a strongly wired appetite mechanism that will drive us to consume sufficient protein. Supplements really help. [17:35] Dark chocolate is a must throughout Brad’s day. [20:33] By midday, Brad is ready to prepare a proper meal. There is a big vote for red meat. [22:34] Fish intake has been decreasing for Brad as the ocean becomes more polluted and fishing practices become more adverse. [27:45] When you are listening to this podcast, we hope you are really hearing the information and taking it in.

Mark Bell: How To Get Jacked And Tan And Other Life Lessons

“You don’t just fall apart when you get old—it’s the bad habits that are potentially going to cause you to fall apart much faster.” It’s time to meet the meathead millionaire, my good friend Mark Bell, co-host of the sensational podcast, Power Project. Mark is a legend in the powerlifting and fitness community, a well known fitness entrepreneur, and a free-thinking and motivated guy who is all about dedicating his time towards helping others. In this thoughtful episode Mark and I talk about fitness and diet, and it gets pretty deep at times as he opens up about important moments in his life story, like the untimely death of his role model and older brother—a tragedy that became the catalyst for him to pursue his dreams. You’ll also hear Mark talk about how he lost over 100 pounds and kept it off, the different diets he has experimented with over the last decade, how to set attainable diet and fat reduction goals, and finally, how his lifelong exploration of healthy eating has led him to meat and fruit (plus, a little bit about the special project we’re working on together!).    TIMESTAMPS: It’s every human being’s job to make yourself super resilient. [09:16] Many people just sweep their problems under the rug and walk around like a stress bomb. [18:26] Make a plan and stick with it. [22:41] Mark’s journey from wrestling with his brothers to power lifting is detailed. [27:15] The first thing you want to do to become a competitive power lifter is to gain weight. [37:59] Your first rep should look like your last rep. Prioritize what you want to get good at. [40:59] Try something totally new to what you have been doing.  Do it gradually. [46:51] Pain and injury can be your teacher. They monitor how you should be using your body. [53:11] There are many ways to train and to train cheating the system. You always have to work around potential problems. [58:49] Reproduction, repair, growth, and locomotion are a zero-sum game. [01:04:35] Find what works for you. Being on a diet doesn’t have to be boring. [01:08:37] Your relationship with food changes when you totally adjust your intake from training. [01:16:23] When you go into power lifting, putting on weight is a good way to get stronger. [01:19:39] What is the secret behind the slingshot? [01:21:30] How did Mark get into the entrepreneur position after the power lifting? How did he lose the excess body weight from the 330 pounds he was carrying around? [01:25:41] People who carry extra weight need to think about the joints wearing out as well as heart and kidneys. It’s never too late to turn the corner. [01:55:56] Negative emotions come from negative interpretations.
