She's post-menopausal, so her hormones are already low, but her morning cortisol is 24 which is high. What are your recommendations to pre and post-menopausal females with regards to intermittent fasting and would you suggest it for someone with elevated AM cortisol?

Past Episodes

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/captivate When I was attending University of Idaho, my roommate was one of the top vacuum cleaner salesman in the world. Believe it or not I've actually had him on the podcast in a separate episode which you can listen to here. I remember being fascinated with this guy's personal library. It was chock-full of books about reading body language, how to tell if people were lying to you, how to tell if people were attracted to you, how to negotiate, how to argue, and how to successfully enchant people and engage in social situations. So I read just about every book in his library and became incredibly interested in the science of human body language and human emotions. However, for the past several years I really haven't delved into much of the science behind understanding human connections and human interactions until my interest was recently re-sparked when reading a fascinating new book called Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People. As I usually do when I find a book incredibly intriguing, I folded over an enormous number of pages and hunted down the author to interview her for today's podcast. If you ever feel awkward at networking events, wonder what your date really thinks of you, wish you could decode people, or want to learn more about the science of people, this episode is for you. As a human behavior hacker, my guest on today's podcast - Vanessa Van Edwards - created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us. And she's definitely cracked the code. In her new book Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People, she shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren't the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science backed, real life manual on how to captivate anyone - and a completely new approach to building connections. Just like knowing the formulas to use in a chemistry lab, or the right programming language to build an app, Captivate provides simple ways to solve people problems. You learn, for example... -How to work a room: Every party, networking event, and social situation has a predictable map. Discover the sweet spot for making the most connections. -How to read faces: It's easier than you think to speed-read facial expressions and use them to predict people's emotions. -How to talk to anyone: Every conversation can be memorable?once you learn how certain words generate the pleasure hormone dopamine in listeners. When you understand the laws of human behavior, your influence, impact, and income will increase significantly. What's more, you will improve your interpersonal intelligence, make a killer first impression, and build rapport quickly and authentically in any situation - negotiations, interviews, parties, and pitches. You'll never interact the same way again. Vanessa Van Edwards is the lead investigator at Science of People, a human behavior research lab. She is a Huffington Post columnist and published author. Her innovative work has been featured on NPR, Business Week and USA Today. She regularly gives keynotes and appears in the media to talk about her research. She has written for CNN, Fast Company and Forbes. Her latest book, Captivate, was chosen as one of Apple's Most Anticipated Books of 2017. During my discussion with Vanessa, you'll discover: -How we can "smell" fear in people, why women on birth control pills may choose the wrong mate, and how our level of hormones can actually change our facial structure and compatibility with other people...[9:35] -What a "PQ score" is and why it is so relevant to success...[14:27] -The biggest mistake most people make at social events, and where successful "hyper-networkers" stand...[17:50] -What you can learn from the most successful TED Talks based on the same three things that every TED presenter does...[23:20] -The "trust hormone" that Ben injected for several weeks that can also be released via eye contacts and handshakes...[26:35] -Why Vanessa took a 7 day vow of silence, and the shocking lessons she learned by "not talking"...[37:15] -One of the best hacks you can use to sync your brain to someone else you are talking to...[43:50] -What is the process Vanessa describes in her book called "the nut job"?

How To Maximize Ketosis Margot says: I just listened to your interview with Dom D'agostino where (if I understood correctly) he said that you can enhance the synergistic effects of exogenous ketones if you mix them with BCAAs and MCTs. I take ketone salts that only have potassium added. I was wondering if I could get the added benefits of BCAAs and MCTs if I add them in my own concoction. Or even by added the ketone salts to a protein powder and then adding some coconut oil. That would enhance the taste but would it do anything to the effectiveness of the ketone salts? In my response, I recommend: -My article on BCAA's vs. EAA's -How to get into ketosis -The Levl device (MARGE INSERT OUR AFFILIATE LINK/DISCOUNT CODE) Do Power Poses Really Work? Kyle says: When you go and do public speaking, for example when you did your TED talk, when you to present in front of people, what are some strategies you use to get into that presenter mode?

Do you do these DIY projects and look for low toxin products, like a low VOC paint or something that doesn't have any toxins in it? Do you contract the work out so you don't have to touch it? What do you do? In my response, I recommend: -How To Biohack Healthy Home book (MARGE INCLUDE OUR LINK) -AirDoctor (MARGE INCLUDE OUR LINK AND CODE) -17 ways I detoxed my body in 2017 Should You Have Sex Before Competition? Beni says: I am wondering about this idea of peaking for a race where for 3-4 days you ejaculate a lot (or have a lot of sex) and then about 2-3 days before competition you cut it all off to increase testosterone (or whatever). Apparently there is a lot of ayurvedic study around this. I would like to hear the physiological side of this. Is there any clinical proof or a reason to do this? Ben, I know you were tampering with this so let me know if you have seen results with that.

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/hrv2 Measuring your heart rate variability (also known as "HRV") is, in my opinion, one of the most valuable ways to begin your day with a brief three to five minute period of simple self-quantification that tells you exactly how stressed your nervous system is, how prepared your body is to train, and how everything from stress to supplements to sleep to sex has affected your body. I've certainly produced tons of content on exactly how HRV works and how to do it, including: -A Deep Dive Into HRV: The Myths & Truths of Heart Rate Variability Testing -Does A Vegetarian Diet Reduce Sperm Count, Cell Phones And Brain Cancer, What Is A Good "HRV" Number & More! -HRV: The Single, Next Big Trend In Biohacking And Self-Quantification And How To Use It -338: How To Lower High Cortisol, The Groundbreaking High-Fat Endurance Study, What Causes Low HRV & More! -Episode #222: What Is The Best Way To Track Your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) -322: The Truth About "Starvation Mode", Does Ketosis Work For Crossfit, Measuring HRV During Exercise & More! -#313: Vegan Bulletproof Coffee & Vegan Bone Broth, Can HRV Be Too High, Are Tesla Cars Healthy & Much More! -#299: Does A Vegetarian Diet Reduce Sperm Count, Cell Phones And Brain Cancer, What Is A Good "HRV" Number & More! -The Do-It-Yourself Guide To Using Heart Rate Variability Testing to Track Your Stress and Nervous System Health -Everything You Need To Know About Heart Rate Variability Testing But in this podcast episode, I address - along with HRV expert Jo Beth Dow - the latest news in the world of HRV, brand new technologies, and even ways to measure HRV without a chest strap. So who is Jo Beth Dow? Jo Beth Dow is a cofounder, CTO and COO of SweetWater Health, LLC, a pioneer in the use of heart rate variability as a platform for remote monitoring and diagnostics. Dow has spent her career in high tech designing and producing state-of- the-art networking technology and building high tech companies. Dow entered the networking industry at its inception and has been at the forefront of networking technology development, including Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and FDDI while working for Ungermann-Bass, Telebit, Network Peripherals, Granite Systems, Cisco and Dominet Systems. She founded and grew several technology companies where she honed her financial and operations expertise, including Granite Systems (acquired by Cisco), Dominet Systems, RedMedic (acquired by Blue Shield, and SweetWater Health). She also served as CFO for Content Rules, a content development firm specializing in high tech clients. During her five-years at Content Rules, Dow took the firm from $3M to $8.7M in revenue. Dow co-founded SweetWater Health LLC with CEO Ronda Collier in 2011. SweetWater Health is a mobile health software technology company with a platform that measures heart rate variability (a vital sign that reveals an individual's state of health for a number of different conditions and applications) and facilitates continuous monitoring of stress levels via a patented algorithm. She is responsible for engineering development of the product, operations, finance and corporate strategy. Dow graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer sciences at Florida Atlantic University. During our discussion, you'll discover: -What I personally do with my own HRV numbers and how I choose the exercise I'm going to do based on my HRV numbers...[6:45 & 9:10] -Whether there is any kind of special difference between the algorithm used in NatureBeat and the other popular HRV tools out there, like EliteHRV, MyIthlete, Bioforce, etc...[11:35] -The first screen on NatureBeat has four options for monitoring stress - monitor stress, heart rate recovery, HRV for training and 3 min HRV checkup - and Jo Beth walks us through each...[20:50] -How you can use your HRV measurement to tell whether or not you are depressed...[29:15] -How much you can "game" that value with breathing, relaxation or meditation techniques while measuring your HRV...[35:15] -When a high HRV is a bad thing...[38:15] -How the food test works, and how Ben figured out he was eating "the wrong thing" for lunch...[47:05] -How you can use the "correlation" screen to see how everything from body weight to stress to weight affects the HRV...[51:25] -What heart rate monitor straps work best for measuring HRV...[55:45] -How you can measure your heart rate variability without using a chest strap...[59:00] -How a Zoom HRV monitor works to measure your HRV, along with your blue light exposure...[62:20] -And much more...

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/concussionmanual Concussion is the biggest name in today's high-impact sports. And even if you haven't had a concussion, many people - due to brain inflammation, blood-brain barrier leakage, neurotransmitter imbalances and beyond - suffer from many of the same problematic brain issues caused by a concussion, such as brain fog, distraction, and ADHD-like symptoms (you can check out my own story about that, and how I fixed it, in this article I published after my brain scan at the Peak Brain Institute). As more and more high profile athletes come forward to share their stories of invisible suffering after head injuries, we as a culture are finally acknowledging this silent epidemic. Enter The Concussion Repair Manual: A Practical Guide to Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries, written by today's podcast guest, Dr. Dan Engle, as a user's guide for those suffering after head traumas and those that support them. It is one-part "textbook," packed with the leading research on medical technologies for healing the injured brain, and one-part "workbook," offering a step-by-step method for making and tracking a personalized recovery regimen. Dr. Dan Engle's background and passion for concussion repair stem from a three-decade investigation into the many modalities for healing his own traumas. When the usual medical treatments didn't help, he explored what was possible, found what worked and put them into this manual - "the best of the best" in the medical arena for recovering from sports related head injury. Dr. Engle is Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, with a clinical practice that combines aspects of regenerative medicine, orthomolecular psychiatry, integrative spirituality and peak performance methods. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas in San Antonio, his psychiatry residency degree from the University of Colorado in Denver and his Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship degree from Oregon Health and Sciences University. Currently, he is Medical Consultant to Onnit Labs in Austin, Texas, the Temple of the Way of Light Ayahuasca Center in Peru, Crossroads Ibogaine Recovery Center in Mexico and the True Rest Float Center in Tempe, Arizona. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How to get your own home float tank and the type of psychedelics or supplements to use before getting into the float tank...[12:55] -Where to purchase ketamine as a psychedelic on the Dark Web...[22:10] -The best way to go about hunting down a home hyperbaric oxygen therapy...[28:00] -What an interference field is and why Dr. Dan talks about it in the book in relation to hormones...[30:20] -How Dr. Dan performed what he calls "meditation on steroids"...[53:30] -What you can learn from the practice of ancient man using sharpened stones as medicine...[59:50] -Why glutathione is so important and how one administers it intranasally...[71:15] -And much more!

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/mikematthews Mike Matthews is a bestselling fitness author of books like "Bigger, Leaner, Stronger" and "Thinner, Leaner, Stronger". He is also the creator of the blog MuscleForLife.com and the supplement company Legion Athletics. His scientific approach to building muscle and losing fat has helped thousands of people build strong, lean, muscular, and healthy bodies, and his work has been featured in many popular outlets including Bodybuilding.com, Esquire, Men's Health, Elle, and many more. Here's a small sampling of a few of Mike's core beliefs about getting into the best shape of your life: Lifting light weights for high reps is basically a waste of time. If your routine doesn't revolve around heavy lifting, you're doing it wrong. Getting lean, and even super lean, does NOT require hours upon hours of grueling cardio, or crash dieting that leaves you starving and miserable every day. If you know what you're doing, you can gain 20-30 pounds of lean mass (yes, muscle) in your first year of training, regardless of your genetics. Pretty much every machine in the gym should be avoided, and most exercises are horribly ineffective. Which brings me to the next point... The idea that you have to constantly change your workout routine or your body will adapt and plateau is a lie. I change my routine once every 2-4 months and consistently get stronger month after month. You don't have to exercise for more than 1 hour per day, 5 days per week to be in peak physical condition. I personally lift weights Monday through Friday for about 45 minutes, and do 3-4 cardio sessions per week, with each session running about 30 minutes. And I do the cardio mainly because I enjoy it. HOW MUCH you eat determines the effectiveness of your diet, not WHAT or WHEN. No matter what you're doing with your diet, you can always work in cheats and indulgences and achieve your goals. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why Mike now works out far less than what he used to, and gets better results...[10:45] -Mike's opinion on the research that high reps, low weight actually works for hypertrophy...[14:20 & 20:00] -Why both Ben and Mike like the hex bar for deadlifting...[32:50] -Why Mike says clean eating isn't the key to weight loss or muscle gain...[40:30] -The can't-miss components of Mike's morning routine...[53:50] -What Mike's diet and supplement regimen looks like, and the four supplements he always takes...[57:10] -And much more!

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/weedpodcast The recent controversial article featured on Greatist entitled "Why More Athletes Are Turning to Weed" starts like this... "It's a typical Wednesday evening. After a long run, Andrew, who works in digital media in New York City, is following his standard post-run routine. Like most runners, he'll quickly cool down, stretch, drink water, and maybe grab a post-workout snack. Unlike many runners, he'll also smoke pot. The avid runner and cyclist, whose racing resume includes the Umstead 100 Ultra, typically lights up immediately before his athletic activities and usually within an hour or two post-sweat session. Andrew isn't alone in his habit?in fact, combining cannabis and sport has become an underground trend in distance-running culture. Ultra runners such as Avery Collins and Jen Shelton have admitted to running under the influence of marijuana. And former professional runner Chris Barnicle, a cannabis advocate living in Los Angeles, calls himself the "world's fastest stoner" on Twitter. Pro-cannabis running groups, like Run on Grass in Denver, are dedicated to staying fit and educating others about cannabis, while online communities like Cannafit and NORML Athletics also promote cannabis' association with healthy living. And it's not just runners who are experimenting with weed. Bodybuilders may hit a bong to prevent soreness and sleep better, while action sports athletes such as mountain bikers, skiers, and snowboarders may light up on the lift to get in the zone, loosen up, or release their inhibitions. Even some athletes participating in niche sports such as skeleton, bobsledding, and ice hockey toke up." Last year, in my own article The Effect Of Weed On Exercise: Is Marijuana A Performance-Enhancing Drug?, I delved into whether THC, CBD, or other ingredients in marijuana actually enhance athletic performance on a molecular level. Then, just a few months ago, USA Today reported on the world's first "marijuana gym", describing a San Francisco gym called "Power Plant Fitness", where clients have the option to bring their own cannabis or order edibles, the gym's preferred form of cannabis, while they are at the gym. A delivery service brings desired edibles to the gym within 15 minutes after clients place orders, and the gym has a designated space for those inhaling marijuana. The gym, which advertises itself as the world's first cannabis gym, touts using the drug for pain, focus and meditation. With the growing popularity of the combination of cannabis and sport, I decided it was high time to get an industry leader on the podcast to take a deep dive into whether weed really helps with exercise performance, and the current state of marijuana in the sporting industry. So my guest on this podcast is Tim Moxey, owner of botanicaSEATTLE, Tim Moxey and botanicaSEATTLE maks some of the best tasting and, in my opinion, healthiest marijuana and hemp based edibles that exist. Take, for example, the label of one of my favorite products that they produce, a tiny Altoid sized product called "Moxeys Mints", which are infused with ginkgo leaf, siberian ginseng, indian gooseberry, echinacea root, chamomile, california poppy, cinnamon, peppermint, ginger and more. Born in the Pacific Northwest, Moxey's Mints are crafted in small batches to promote wellbeing in mind and body. Each pastille is formulated with herbal synergists tailored to elevate the cannabis experience. Moxey's herbal allies can brighten your day with Siberian Ginseng and Gingko, lower stress and allow you to kick back with California Poppy and Camomile and restore and maintain balance in mind and body with Indian Gooseberry and Echinacea. So how did Tim come up with all these ideas that spawned an enormously successful edibles company? After studying Physics at Warwick Uni, Tim joined British investment bank Barclays de Zoete Wedd, with roles on the derivatives, risk and strategy teams before getting an MBA from Dartmouth's Tuck School in 2001. After a stint in the Australian division of strategic management consulting firm, Bain and Company, Tim left to build specialist triathlon wetsuit company 'blueseventy' into the leading brand in the sport. He then went on to found 'nuun', a pioneering hydration company which spawned a new category in sports nutrition. In 2012 Tim was living in the U.K. when he read an article in 'The Economist' about Washington State voting to legalize cannabis. It had a profound effect and he was convinced that the socioeconomic benefits from a legal framework far outweighed the prohibition model. He promptly relocated to the US to build a company that would set the standard in a regulated environment. Tim currently runs botanicaSEATTLE with co-founder Chris Abbott. botanicaSEATTLE (www.botanicaseattle.com) is now the leading edibles company in the most developed legal market in the world and is committed to creating innovative micro-dose products that focus on quality and responsibility. It has created and built a portfolio of brands such as "SPOT", "Mr Moxey's Mints", "BOND", "Journeyman" and "Proper Chocolates" in addition to smokable cannabis brand, "Vashon Velvet". During our discussion, you'll discover: -Tim's experience at the Tough Guy obstacle course in the UK, one of the world's most difficult obstacle course races...[8:44] -How Tim went from the triathlon industry running blueseventy and nuun into, of all things, cannabis...[14:15 & 20:00] -The current perception of cannabis that athletes and exercise enthusiasts have...[28:10] -Why pro athletes around the world still use weed pretty extensively, whether Tim thinks it gives any direct sports performance benefits, why Tim thinks cannabis is "banned" by organizations like USADA and WADA...[32:40] -The ratio of CBD to THC that seems to give the best effects for athletes...[41:20] -Which specific marijuana strains seem to be most beneficial for athletic performance...[47:15] -The many frustrating hoops a cannabis company has to jump through to even stay in business...[49:40] -The next big products in the industry when it comes to cannabis for athletes...[62:20] -And much more...

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/gundry Grains of all kinds, especially whole grain wheat. Corn. Tomatoes. Potatoes. Beans and legumes, particularly soy. Just about all nuts, especially cashews and peanuts. Zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant and pickles. And yes, even our dear friend the avocado. Each of these foods has one thing in common - a food component that today's podcast guest, Dr. Steven Gundry, claims may responsible for some of the world's most pressing health issues, from obesity to heart disease. In Dr. Gundry's new book The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain", he highlights exactly what that foood component is. Dr. Gundry is a renowned cardiologist, New York Times best-selling author and medical researcher. During his 40-year career in medicine, he has performed over 10,000 heart surgeries and developed multiple life-saving medical technologies, including patenting nine cardiac surgery devices. He is a cum laude graduate of Yale University with special honors in Human Biological and Social Evolution. After graduating Alpha Omega Alpha from the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine, Dr. Gundry completed residencies in General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery at the University of Michigan and served as a Clinical Associate at the National Institutes of Health. There, he invented devices that reverse the cell death seen in acute heart attacks; variations of these devices subsequently became the Gundry? Retrograde Cardioplegia Cannula. It has become the world's most widely used device of its kind to protect the heart from damage during open-heart surgery. After completing a fellowship in congenital heart surgery at The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, in London, Dr. Gundry was recruited as Professor and Chairman of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center. There, he and his partner, Leonard Bailey, pioneered infant and pediatric heart transplantation. Together, they have performed more such transplants than any other surgeons in the world. During his tenure at Loma Linda, Dr. Gundry pioneered the field of xenotransplantation, the study of how the genes of one species react to the transplanted heart of a foreign species. He was one of the original twenty investigators of the first FDA-approved implantable left ventricular assist device (a kind of artificial heart). Dr. Gundry is also the inventor of the Gundry Ministernomy, the widely used minimally invasive approach to aortic- or mitral-valve repair, the Gundry Lateral Tunnel, a "living" tissue that can rebuild parts of the heart in children with severe congenital heart malformations; and the Skoosh? venous cannula, the most widely used cannula in minimally invasive heart operations. One of the fathers of robotic surgery, as a consultant to Computer Motion (now Intuitive Surgical), Dr. Gundry received early FDA approval to use robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery for coronary artery-bypass and mitral-valve operations. He holds patents on devices for connecting blood vessels and coronary artery bypasses without sutures, as well as for repairing the mitral valve without the need for sutures or a heart-lung machine. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Artificial Internal Organs (ASIAO), and was a founding board member and treasurer of the International Society of Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS). He recently completed two successive elected terms as President of the Board of Directors of the American Heart Association, Desert Division. Dr. Gundry has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Cardiology, the American Surgical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the College of Chest Physicians. He is a member of numerous other surgical and medical societies. He is also the author of more than three hundred articles, chapters, and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals on surgical, immunology, genetic, nutrition, and lipid investigations. He has operated in more than thirty countries, including charitable missions to China, India, and Zimbabwe. Inspired by the stunning reversal of coronary artery disease in an "inoperable" patient, using a combination of dietary changes and nutriceutical supplements, in 2001, Dr. Gundry changed the path of his career. An obese, chronic "diet" failure himself, he adapted his undergraduate Yale University thesis to design a diet based on evolutionary genetic coding, which enabled him to reverse his own medical problems. In the process, he effortlessly lost 70 pounds. The equally astonishing results from following what he came to call Diet Evolution in several of his staff led Dr. Gundry to accept a position in Palm Springs where he could devote his efforts to disease reversal. No longer satisfied with repairing the damage of chronic diseases, since 2002, Dr. Gundry founded and has served as Medical Director of The International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, which serves patients referred from across the nation. He is also Founder and Director of The Center for Restorative Medicine, part of the Institute. Its mission is to prevent and reverse the chronic diseases of "ageing" with diet and nutriceutical interventions, using surgical intervention for heart and vascular disease as a last resort. During today's discussion with Dr. Gundry, you'll discover: -What exactly a lectin is, and why plants have them...[6:56] -What happens to the gut upon consumption of lectins, and whether there's any research behind it...[9:25 ] -The common (and uncommon) sources of lectins that most people eat...[20:35] -How a lectin is different than gluten...[21:35 & 30:10] -Whether our ancestors ate plants and lectins...[31:10 & 44:50] -Why Steven is such a fan of eating fruit that's in season, or fruit that is unripened...[36:45] -Why Steven thinks it is that so many of the Blue Zones in Dan Buettner's longevity book had a propensity for eating legumes, yet still lived long...[48:45] -Simple hacks you can use to reduce lectins in common foods like tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, apple, rice, etc...[39:55, 43:25 & 55:50] -And much more!

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/holder What separates us from the rest is something that happens every morning around 11:00am. I walk over to the stereo, change the music to either Enya or Lama Gyurme, and the room stops. Those athletes who have been involved with this process all gather around, we walk over to a central space in the room, and we begin a practice that has been performed for thousands of years. Chris Holder is the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Cal Poly in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California. Along with working with 22 Division I athletic teams and over 500 student-athletes, Chris is a Doctor of Medical Qigong (DMQ-China). Under the tutelage of world famous Qigong Grand Master Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson, Dr. Holder conducted groundbreaking research on the effects of Medical Qigong Therapy with athletes in competition, the first of its kind. With the blending of western strength training practices and eastern medical and spiritual practices, Chris co-authored a study investigating the effects of a daily Qigong practice on strength gains in collegiate aged athletes. These two pieces have spawned additional studies that are currently in progress. The first is investigating the effects of Qigong on flow induction. The second could be one of the most important studies in concussion research. Both are showing tremendous benefits to each area of study. Chris is one of only 13 Master RKC's in the world and is known in many strength training circles as one of the first to introduce kettlebell training to collegiate athletics. Chris has worked with athletes at all levels, including professionals in the NFL, NBA and MLB. Chris is a regular contributor to several of the major strength training websites on the web, including, Breaking Muscle, TrainHeroic and Dragon Door. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How Chris blends Eastern Medicine and bad-ass strength concepts to get breakthrough performance in his student-athletes...[7:40] -The five yin organs that Chris targets with his work...[11:20] -How Chris has substantiated the power of consistent Qigong work and its enormous benefits to strength-trained athletes...[17:15] -Why Chris thinks Qi Gong rivals performance enhancing drugs when it comes to performance breakthroughs...[23:10] -How Chris went from being a college football player to becoming a Medical Qi Gong doctor...[24:20] -Why more athletes and exercise enthusiasts, and the fitness community in general, aren't utilizing Qi Gong...[33:00] -The link between emotions, inflammation and cancer, and how you can use Qi Gong to release negative emotions...[36:56] -Why the lower dantian is so important for everyone to build...[44:55] -How to increase drive and sexual performance with specific Qi Gong exercises...[50:55] -How you can use your mind can make the kettlebell swing more effective...[52:45] -Why it's important to put your tongue on the roof of your mouth when doing these practices...[68:35] -Why you need to read "Bob Frissell - Nothing In This Book Is True"...[70:36] -And much more...
