If you are an endurance athlete or even just a cardio enthusiast at the gym, this is a great show to lay the foundation for a healthier, more sensible, more effective approach to endurance training. The duo discuss heart rate parameters, stress and rest balance, the strategic inclusion of high intensity workouts, and much more. If you are gonna spend the time and energy to conduct devoted endurance workouts, do it the right way. Realize that slowing down to go faster really works!
Description: Host Brad Kearns talks you through a top-10 list of fitness trends that are simply awesome! It starts with Brad’s favorite recommendation to maintain passion and competitive intensity throughout life, and then being smart and strategic with your training decisions. Today, there are many fantastic breakthroughs in fitness philosophy and strategy that emphasize stress-rest balance, recovery, and mobility instead of just the “no pain, no gain” emphasis of the old days. This list of ideas will be easy for you to implement into your daily routine and gain huge benefits for minimal time investment. Here’s a quick look at the list the Brad details for you: Conduct plenty of flexibility/mobility drills per Kelly Starrett; conduct HIRT workouts in favor of HIIT per Dr. Craig Marker; emphasize Breakthrough Workouts per Mark Sisson (exciting new idea Mark’s been talkin’ ’bout since ’88!); increase the severity of your stress/rest fluctuation per Brad Kearns (easier easy workouts!); exercise some restraint at your hardest workouts per Dr. Phil Maffetone: try micro-workouts during your busy day; conduct Rebound Workouts to recover faster, and understand HRV completely, both per Joel Jamieson; fast after difficult workouts (really!) per Dude Spellings; listen to the whole show per Brian “WholeDood” McAndrew. This could be one of the best podcast episodes of the decade because this stuff really works and it’s do-able for all fitness enthusiasts!Keep reading
Elle Russ chats with thyroid patient advocate and author Janie A. Bowthorpe M.Ed, who suffered at the hands of doctors for 20 years. Why? They failed to see the connection between her chronic and debilitating symptoms and forcing her body to live for conversion alone, aka T4-only like Synthroid. The examining room responses were always along the lines of “You are normal” and “It’s something else besides your thyroid”. All the latter meant money down the drain, frustrating and false pronouncements by doctors, along with painful tests, dead ends, and the dark realization she would finally have to apply for Social Security Disability.
But Bowthorpe proved them all wrong in 2002. She switched to Natural Desiccated Thyroid, raised and found her optimal amount, and every single debilitating symptom went completely away. That change spurred her to create the movement later called Stop the Thyroid Madness, aka STTM.
What makes the Stop the Thyroid Madness movement different from other websites and books? It’s near totally about 17 years of reported patient experiences in getting well, and the wisdom gained from those experiences. Janie is the author of three great books: The 2019 updated revision of Stop the Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior Thyroid Treatment – this book compiles all the patient wisdom in getting well and is often called the bible of patient experiences. Hashimoto’s: Taming the Beast for those with the autoimmune Hashimoto’s disease. Another patient-to-patient book, telling you first about Hashimotos, references to plenty of research, all the ways gut health issues can impact one’s issues, and moves into several patient-to-patient information about frustrations, how foods affect different patients, better ways to eat, and 96 short testimonies how how Hashi’s patients are taming the beast successfully. And lastly, Stop the Thyroid Madness II: How Thyroid Experts are Challenging Ineffective Treatments and Improving the Lives of Patients (aka STTM II). Each chapter contributed by a practitioner.Keep reading
Elle Russ chats with Dr. Robert Zembroski – a specialist in functional medicine, chiropractic neurologist, clinical nutritionist, and transformational speaker. Twenty-six years in private practice, including his own journey through disease, has enabled Dr. Z to become an expert in health topics from heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease, obesity, cancer, hormone issues, nutrition, and fitness.
He is the author of the ground-breaking new patient-friendly guide to recovery REBUILD: 5 Proven Steps to Move From Diagnosis to Recovery and Be Healthier Than Before. Dr. Z’s new book REBUILD is the only program that allows the reader to create a personalized plan based on their unique health needs.
Dr. Z has been seen on FOX Business, Fox & Friends, Tom Bilyeu’s Health Theory, and featured in multiple online and print outlets and magazines including: Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Health, Readers Digest, Bulletproof, Goop, Medium, Popsugar, Bustle, BuzzFeed and more.
Years ago, Dr. Zembroski’s own diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma led to several courses of toxic chemotherapy, as well as surgery, to remove a five-inch tumor from his chest.
That experience inspired him to create the Cancer Victor® Protocol—a research-based parallel set of steps that augments the function of chemotherapy and radiation treatments to not only improve the function of the chemo, but to radically reduce the toxic effects of chemotherapy. The protocol also will make a person going through cancer care stronger and more resilient, leading to better results and a more rapid recovery.
Director of the Darien Center for Functional Medicine, Dr. Z is committed to providing you answers in a confusing world of medical opinions and poor results.Keep reading
