Water 101: Why I Prioritize 100 Ounces Daily and I Think You Should Too

You know I'm a HUGE believer in honoring my body daily through movement, mindset, and macros. But one thing I haven't talked a lot about in the past and have been highlighting more recently on Instagram is HYDRATION.  I truly believe that hydration is just as important as movement and nourishment. That's why in this episode of the Embrace Your Real podcast, I share with you 7 reasons why I prioritize drinking AT LEAST 100 ounces of water a day. And I know what you're thinking... Julie, HOW can I drink 100 ounces of water daily?! Here is what I recommend you do...  One of the easiest ways to drink 100 ounces of water daily is to use a super large water bottle. Then, you must know how many times you need to refill that water bottle each day to reach your hydration goal.  From there, figure out by what time of the day you need to drink X amount of water. For example, I like to aim to drink 50 ounces by 11:00 AM. That way, I don't get stuck drinking all my water at night trying to make up for my lack of hydration throughout my day.  If you want to learn more tips and tricks for building the body you want, I have already released an episode that gives you a step-by-step guide!  You can listen to it here.

Battling burnout, struggling to be a better mom, and finding balance are some of the biggest concerns of physician mothers. I'm so glad to share this conversation with an actual voice of experience, Dr. Susan Landers. She join me to talk about how she embraced “good enough,” embraced being a working mom, and found balance in her home and career.   Key Takeaways Take care of yourself.  Find out what makes you feel really good about yourself and really fulfilled, do that. A lot. Give yourself permission to do what fulfills you. Give yourself a pat on the back.  Have some self-compassion! We're too hard on ourselves as physician moms. You're going to be okay.   About Dr. Susan Landers Dr. Susan Landers is a retired neonatologist with 34 years of NICU experience. She practiced in academic medicine (on faculty of two medical schools) and in private practice. She has special expertise in breastfeeding medicine and human donor breastmilk banking. She currently lives in Austin, Tx. Susan raised three children (now all young adults) with her physician husband while they both practiced medicine full time. In her memoir called "So Many Babies: My Life Balancing a Busy Medical Career and Motherhood,” she talks about some of her best, and worst, life experiences, and how she managed to stay resilient. Susan enjoys sharing the things she learned during her journey as an ambitious, successful doctor who raised three children while working full-time. Susan attended medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and completed a pediatrics residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Her neonatology fellowship was completed at Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.   On Struggling with Burnout and Balance Dr. Susan Landers begins our conversation today by sharing her experience of burnout. It's something she struggled through for much of her career in academia before choosing to set some boundaries that supported her as a mother, wife, and physician. She offers some advice for new and mid-career physicians from her experience tackling burnout. Susan gives some tips for how you can ask for help, especially when you're struggling to. We all know asking for help isn't the easiest thing to do! She also shares some incredible advice her therapist gave her about how many plates she's balancing and how that helped her realize what her priorities actually were. By focusing on what she could actually control, instead of all the things that were out of her control, Susan felt like she was better equipped to create balance in her life.   On Becoming a Working Mom One of Susan's biggest struggles was coming to terms with the fact that she was a good enough mom. There's so much pressure on working moms to be perfect in all aspects of life, especially as a mother and a physician.  After twenty years, she finally understood that she was a working mom and that that is a totally okay and acceptable thing to be. Now Susan's goal is to continue being good enough. We don't need to be perfect; we just need to be good enough. Finally, Susan explains how her supportive community and friends, the people outside her husband and children, are an essential part of creating balance in her life. She knows she can seek conversation, support, and advice from them whenever she needs it. Are you struggling with being the perfect mom and physician? It's so understandable. I would love it if you tried to adopt the “good enough” mantra this year and see how that changes your life. Let me know in the comments on the episode page what you're struggling with!   In This Episode  What new or mid-career physicians need to know about burnout [4:45] How to ask for help when you're struggling to ask [10:30] Why you need to realize what your priorities actually are [13:30] What happens when you focus on what you can control instead of what you can't control [16:30] The realities of being a working mom [21:00] How to be comfortable with your balance of loving your job and loving being a mom [24:00] Why a supportive community, outside your partner, is essential [26:30]   Quotes “Sometimes you have to make really big changes to see the light. To figure out what it is that your problem is.” [7:09] “You have to actually say to yourself, ‘Where do I fit in? What are my strengths? And where can they be used?'” [15:11] “I struggled to feel like a good enough mom for twenty years. It took me a long, long time, and my dear husband telling me I am a good enough mom, to feel that way. We work so much and we miss so much. We want to be involved in everything our children do, but we all love medicine and we love our job! We love taking care of other people, but we also want to take care of our kids. We're in a position our whole careers to not be good enough because we're doing other things besides being a mom. Just accept that who you are is a working mom.” [21:10] “I think the working moms, especially physician moms, try so hard to be good enough, but they need to stop and say to themselves, ‘I am doing the best that I can. I am a physician and I am a mother and I am doing the best job I can. I'm not going to be perfect but I'm going to be good enough.” [23:16]   Resources Mentioned Join G.O.A.L.S.

We learned in the first episode of Retirement Plan Live that Joelle and her husband Mike had moved to a new area to pursue their retirement dreams. Joelle and Mike are now learning how to build community and purpose in their new home. Listen in to learn how Joelle plans to make social connections and find purpose in retirement as she creates her new life. The Rock Retirement Club is open The Rock Retirement Club will be open for enrollment for ten days starting on 1/27. If you have been thinking about joining, this is the right time to act.  We have implemented this short-term enrollment window so that new members can make connections with each other while working to build their retirement plan of record. This way, RRC freshmen can come in as a cohort and fully participate in their membership by taking full advantage of everything that the club has to offer. New members will participate in meetups and have access to the masterclass, retirement planning tools, and the private RRC podcast.  Even if you are too late to join this enrollment, fill out the application and get on the waiting list so that you will be first in line when enrollment opens again.  What will Joelle do with her time in retirement? Once you finally reach retirement you have to figure out what to do with all of your time. When Joelle moved to her new home in Washington she knew that she would need to find a way to fill 40 hours of her time that was previously spent working.  Joelle has found a new yoga and pilates class to keep fit and connect with others and through these exercise classes, she was even able to connect with a hiking group.  Exercise and connecting with others are important components of retirement. However, finding a purpose in retirement is even more important. Joelle understands that the success of her retirement hinges on finding a purpose which is why she sought out a nonprofit organization to volunteer with shortly after moving to her new home. Listen in to hear how Joelle found this organization and what she plans to do with her time in retirement. Making friends in a new place Moving to a new place can be challenging and when you do so upon retirement it is important to get involved in the community. Without workplace interactions, making friends is even more difficult than in the working years. Joelle has thrown herself into participating in her new exercise classes and volunteering with the nonprofit organization. Although she still doesn't have anyone that she can truly call a friend, she has several acquaintances with whom she is looking forward to making a deeper connection. Do you have any strategies for making friends in a new place? How will you expand your friendship base in retirement?

It's not a connection people often make. People come to work with me usually because of one main thing - mostly fatigue but often weight loss, and body pain. What people don't really realize is that to get to the root causes of their thyroid issues, I'm working on many factors that contribute to those negative symptoms and recommending accordingly.  Most people are under a lot of stress - whether it be normal, daily commitments or extenuating circumstances like an illness - acute and chronic,; caring for others, financial stress, or any other thing that can knock us off our game. Add that to a poor diet and no or over exercise and it sets us up for a dysfunctional thyroid. Stress - good or bad - directly affects the thyroid and its function. When getting to the bottom of our symptoms and for resolution of those symptoms, we need to deal with lifestyle aspects as well. Stress management is key!   Tips for and reasons to be in nature: 1. Get your D. Vitamin D helps with so many things - thyroid health and balancing the immune system are just 2 of the many. 2. Use your senses. Try this activity for yourself or with your kids/family:  5 Things you can see, 4 Things you can feel, 3 Things you can hear, 2 Things you can smell. 1 Thing you can taste (maybe) 3. Be mindful of what you're listening to…is true crime or new the best way to unwind while you're walking in nature? 4. Notice the detail - take pics  of cool things you see…like a rain drop on a leaf, the details of a snowflake, a squirrel in a tree - make a nature walk journal of pics to remind you throughout the year.  5. Be curious - exploring and questioning the things around you 6. Let you mind wander 7. Clean up

5 Lifestyle Tweaks That Support a Journey Towards Better Wellbeing

It's January as I record this but wait wait wait if you're listening later, you just found Flipping50 and your binge-listening (I know you!) because there is never a time of year when we aren't all conscious of the desire for better wellbeing, health, and fitness in these times. So, stick around and give this a listen.    Better wellbeing goes so far beyond “how fit are you?” and can I just say that question rubs me wrong. Or the assessment, “so-and-so is so fit” … because really, who says? Based on what? Are we gauging this by an actual fitness assessment of your strength, muscle endurance, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, and body composition? Or are you pretending that some skinny girl who put on a pair of tights is “fit.”  Stop the Scroll Spend that Time Dreaming, Meditating, and Tapping into Higher Vibration Emotions. It's addictive and it's become compulsive for many. We check our cell phones something like 96 times a day according to a global tech survey in 2019. I would guess after the pandemic, it's more since electronics became our lifeline to connection.  If you have work or you have a purposeful reason, of course, you have the need. But I'm talking about allowing constant notifications from Instagram telling you someone went live. What about the endless scrolling, or half-hour you can waste watching Tik Toc or Reels?  Inevitably you come across something that spins you into comparison mode or causes anxiety. Those kinds of things sink your vibrations. If you love it and want to socialize, limit your time and try setting a time other than the first thing that hi-jacks your time and emotions every day. I think it's tough if not impossible to enjoy better wellbeing if you make yourself regularly feel less-than or not enough.  No one wants a tombstone that reads, “She watched a lot of CNN, and was always anxious,” or “she lovingly scrolled social media in the morning with her coffee.” What are the most important people, purpose, and emotions you want more of in your life? Start and plan around those. Try a social media or news detox for a day, a week, or an “intermittent social fast” where you plan when and take in the highest quality when you do it. Track how your emotions, time, and energy respond.   Feed Creativity & Positivity  When I was mostly mom, although also working, and I was all about the day-to-day care and feeding and the sports practices and games, the sleepovers, the birthday parties… I was into scrapbooking. It was a big creative outlet for me. It got me away from grading university students' papers, writing exams, sitting mindlessly in front of the TV. And I was consuming magazines and following podcasts (there were few but some), and social media of creative, crafty moms. I have an entire bookshelf of scrapbook inspiration with the corners folded down or marked with post-a-notes. It's what I did with my friends.  When I was a personal training director and business coach teaching customer service, sales, and marketing I was inspired by conferences and recordings from them. Twenty years ago, as I was speaking on stages more frequently, and hosting radio shows before podcasts were a thing, there were audio recordings.  Then building Flipping 50, I would listen to CDs for 20 hours during a round trip driving to Iowa from Colorado. Now, I listen to podcasts or catch up on call recordings or masterclasses every time I go for a walk or hike whether that's for one hour or three. It may be about business or about women in business specifically, or how to create a work culture that creates a team that works well together with self-initiative.  The point is, I didn't listen to the same thing for inspiration. It had to change. I needed something directly related to what I wanted. Now, there are so many podcasts that you can search for a voice, an influencer if you will. Or you can search by topic and find podcasts that support you. Sometimes you want short clips of quick tips and for others like me, I crave a 60-minute podcast. If it's by someone I really respect a 90-minute episode is awesome for a long walk.  Tell me in the comments, what length of the podcast is best for you? What do you love? And why? Feed Your Energy  All too often “wellness” is associated with fitness or a weight goal. The path to that is associated with punishing exercise and deprivation of pleasure in food. That of course backfires and it's in part why the diet industry is a thriving billion-dollar industry. The seduction of what you really will never attain through starvation and overexercise is from marketing that's truly damaging to the emotions, metabolism, and health of those that fall for it.  Exercise and diet that supports optimal weight and fitness, will boost energy, endurance, and strength, almost immediately. If you're instead exhausted, sore, and craving, those are signs something is wrong. Diet culture has led women to believe they should suffer (be cold, lack energy, be constantly hungry) in order to reduce calories and get or stay thin. Not true. Have you tried consuming 35 -40 grams of protein at a meal? Almost impossible for women who first try it.    If you've been eating Greek yogurt or having a couple of eggs for breakfast, or collagen protein alone thinking you got your protein in, you're respectively between about 15 and maybe 20 for the yogurt, 12 grams for the eggs, and not actually satisfying muscle's protein need with collagen alone. It may help you stay full, but it won't help you avoid muscle loss that comes with weight loss.  Feed Your Emotions While the connection between better wellbeing and food is obvious. We sometimes starve our souls. You may actually need to start here. When you're in love or experiencing joy, you make better health choices. When on the other hand you're grieving, depressed, sad – all human emotions we need to experience - it's hard to make the choices that support you best. You're not going to exercise your way out of depression, but you can support it. You aren't going to yoga your way out of a need to grieve, but you can support it.    It may not start with the movement. Maybe it's just breath. Try it right now. The very act of taking a deep breath in and then exhaling completely stimulates your vagus nerve. You activate your parasympathetic nervous system. You can experience a greater sense of calm. If you're grieving, you may not think you need more calm, but more energy. I get it, I lost my mom last year, and just prior to her passing I felt all the energy, the anxiousness, the helplessness. Then after I was drained, hit with the tidal wave of emotions. So, I was calm, too calm for my day-to-day activity. But that kind of calm put me in a place where practicing gratitude and experiencing the love and abundance of care I was receiving from people all around me, helped create more energy. That then got me moving a little more, gradually feeling a little more resilient and a little less fragile.  Experiencing emotions release hormones like oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine. Those help us feel better. Mentally feeling better doesn't mean we skip the necessary grieving or sadness we go through in life, but it helps us be able to function while we're doing it. Try just breathing. Bring yourself to places and times in your life full of love and joy. Then express gratitude. Those are higher vibration emotions that you can tap into as often as you want to so that you can handle the other emotions too.  Find a Purpose  Working in fitness for nearly four decades I've heard everyone from teenagers to 60-somethings say they are passionate about fitness. That was often as they explain why they were at a job interview, or sometimes on a podcast.  Purpose, however, is more. The purpose is not fickle or temperamental.  Passion sometimes fades in new fitness professionals when there's a realization that every part of the job isn't fun. When it's not all about Lululemon tights (no offense, I like them too), or donning make-up to teach in front of the class and in front of a mirror. When it's not just about being bubbly and happy because you teach a couple of classes a day or a handful a week, but you have to think about customer service, pay the bills, and do the paperwork.  We lose a lot of passionate fitness trainers, let's just say. In fact, 9/10 fitness businesses went out of business in the first 3 years before the pandemic. Of those that lasted for the first 5 years, a smaller but significant portion of those also goes out of business. Post pandemic we know we're somewhere between 20 and 40% of established fitness businesses haven't survived or are threatened. Many smaller businesses never actually really start… it isn't a profitable business, it's a hobby.  Defining Purpose and Passion The purpose is different. With purpose, you're committed to a worthwhile cause no matter what. You're not ignorant of risks but you're willing to take them and decide you'll do what needs to happen to make it work. Decisions are made not based on what you “like” to do alone, but on what makes you excited and willing to get up and do what you know makes a difference.    Passion is close to needing to have friends and have people like you. The purpose is willing to say the things that create polarity and swim upstream to make changes you think are necessary. Passion chooses social media posts to be popular. Purpose chooses to say what needs to be said and lets the chips fall where they do.  I'm sharing this with our fitness and health professionals, too. I challenge you that the passion you have may not be for fitness. Consider, if you were in an accident and couldn't be the physical body you are now, would you still be passionate about fitness and teaching it? If you were financially struggling, would you continue to do this thing you're doing in the same way you're doing it, or would it be the first thing you dropped in order to make ends meet?  If you truly have a purpose – in any arena – you'd be willing to take risks, do the thing. If it's a passion, it is something you're doing for now. The purpose may mean that your passion is just the vehicle. For me, that has become true. My passion isn't fitness. It's about helping people become the strongest, most resilient in each of the roles they play or want to, and fitness & health are how I do it.  Stop Creating a Life That You Want to Vacate and Retire From I remember one of the first semesters I taught in the Department of Kinesiology. I was honored to teach at a university campus I'd been visiting since I was 7 years old. My grandmother had graduated from it in 1922. My mom and dad both attended. My sister, brother, and cousins attended… and then I attended.  But in the hallway after a day of classes, a professor and colleague from a fitness business said something about the number of weeks left ‘til spring break and the end of the semester. I thought, how awful to have created a life you want to vacate and retire from.  In my journey as a fitness trainer who visited my clients in their homes and saw them in fitness centers, I realized there are more people who live like that than don't.  Listen, no one can or should choose your job for you. In these times a business can be born from an idea and a computer, or even a phone. But if it's just something that makes you want a day off, that makes waking up in the morning anything but looking forward to, think about what's missing for you.  Maybe you did retire from that career and we're so ready. The Pandemic changed many jobs. You may have experienced a desire to get out for many reasons. Is there, however, something missing now? Could you fill that void by volunteering? Teaching others the skills you have?  What's your take-away? Leave me a comment at /better wellbeing below.  The Power of One Looking to get started with an exercise that you love.

In this episode I reveal why I have taken up jogging…… believe it or not the reason is not for fat loss! I discuss exercise beyond fat loss and why as a society we often overlook the "non sexy” health benefits that come with exercising and generally being more active. I also talk on how societal weight stigma has led us to be constantly striving for fat loss and how anything less is labelled as a failure.

My guest is Dr. Alia Crum, Associate (tenured) Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Mind & Body Lab. Dr. Crum is a world expert on mindsets and beliefs and how they shape our responses to stress, exercise, and even to the foods we eat. We discuss how our mindset about the nutritional content of food changes whether it is satisfying to us at a physiological (hormonal and metabolic) level. She also tells how mindsets about exercise can dramatically alter the effects of exercise on weight loss, blood pressure, and other health metrics. Dr. Crum teaches us how to think about stress in ways that allow stress to grow us and bring out our best rather than diminish our health and performance. Throughout the episode, Dr. Crum provides descriptions of high-quality peer-reviewed scientific findings that we can all leverage toward better health and performance in our lives.

00:00.00 Max Shank Welcome back to Monday mornings with max and Mike Hope you guys had a great weekend today. We're gonna cover a topic that I think I have the most expertise in as you know I've just been flying by the seat of my pants talking out my ass for the rest of these topics because. Ah, have no authority on them whatsoever. But today we are going to talk about the vulcan plan how to live long and prosper and there's going to be no bs here. It's not going to be a low salt diet. It's not going to be limiting the amount of eggs that you eat. We're gonna get right to the. Things that really make you live a long time and also enjoy those years the most I'm once again joined by my trusty co-host Mr. Mike blood so. How's it going mike. 00:53.18 mikebledsoe It's going great I'm excited about this topic. You know there's a lot of information out there and as you were alluding to you know we won't be saying you to telling you to stop eating the egg yolks or whatever I know that everyone's. Probably so by this point seen the on Instagram or somewhere online the picture of the New York Times one month talking about how eggs are bad for you in another month how they're great for you and it's a prime example of just you could you can find evidence to support. Any health claim that you want to make 1 way one way or the other. So ah, what's exciting about that is that's ah, that's a huge opportunity for coaches and there's a necessity for coaches in the world because a coach our job is to help. Create the context we take the context of your life and then we take information that we've learned about such a ah topic that has an infinite amount of information and then distill it down for the individual. So I hope we can do that for you here on this. Show and it it's it can be It's a it's a heavy topic but the solutions are so simple I think that's what you're going to discover by the end of the show. Yeah. 02:16.63 Max Shank But they're not going to be sexy. Yeah I got ah I got a lot of ideas about that. This is probably what I write about the most um because everything else trickles down from your physical and mental health. Which those together combine for your health and you can certainly have success in 1 area without being healthy necessarily. But that's not really a goal I would like to help people achieve. So I think about this a lot. You already mentioned one of the big problems which is infinite information and along with that information you have a whole bunch of people who have a certain authority and they want to maintain that authority um. You know? For example, the physical therapists and doctors want to maybe ah keep the personal trainers off their turf like we don't want you guys doing any corrective exercise. That's our territory and. There are stories about like the medical doctor boards trying to block acupuncturists and chiropractors and chinese medicine and things like that. So. There's kind of an authority give and take where everyone's trying to promote their specific solution to this. Health thing. So there's infinite information and you also have these different entities who are trying to prop up their authority whether they have the best solution or not and then another big one. We have talked about before is the difference between causation and correlation. It's it's really tragic because I have actually seen a news piece that said salt excessive salt causes. 10% of all deaths in America now that is outrageous to make that claim and I looked at the studies they were citing to do that and it was just a total embarrassment. It could be. That having a higher salt diet is correlated ah because a lot of junk food has high salt but it is just so ridiculous to say that 10% of all deaths in America are caused by salt I mean it's ridiculous. So getting back to. 04:52.80 mikebledsoe And go. 04:57.85 Max Shank What you said before which is that it's simple solutions. That's where I have this idea called the popular paradox and things need to look really fancy for people to buy into them. You know I realized as I've been. Promoting my own products and developing some products behind the scenes that people will do something that looks cool before they do something that is good for them if it doesn't look cool. 05:26.98 mikebledsoe I think part of that is is that people when they when they think about their own problems. They've had such a difficult time solving their problem and so you know I've had this problem my whole life. The solution can't be simple. It's got to be complex and I really think that that's something that plagues people as they go you know I go well have you do drink is the first thing you drink in the morning water and do you go for walks every day. 05:52.19 Max Shank Um. 06:04.56 mikebledsoe Ah, go? Well no, but you know I'm doing the you know I'm monitoring my Hrv and I'm ah you know doing all this really complicated on this crazy training program and okay, well unless we and and and people you know just refuse to do it I think well there's 2 things is. Think that because they they haven't been able solved the problem yet that it must be.. It's going to require some Genius solution. That's just they could never have imagined so they're gonna again look for the authority just to tell them what to do whoever they assign that to be um, the other thing is I think that. In our youth for a lot of us. We associate effort with reward and a lot of people never outgrow that and so they think that it has to be hard if it's going to be effective and I think that if we. 06:55.59 Max Shank A. 07:00.97 mikebledsoe We take the approach that most solutions are simple and we put our attention on how to be effective versus the amount of effort we put into it people would would go a lot further. 07:21.94 Max Shank You just said 2 things there that were really awesome. The first is the desire for a complex solution because if the solution is simple. They're like oh god I'm so dumb like how did I not know that if you say. Ah, yeah, double your water intake and walk for an hour every day they're gonna they're gonna go oh that's like I shouldn't pay you for that solution. That's like too simple, but if you have them. 07:53.42 mikebledsoe I. 07:59.50 Max Shank Get if if it's true if you have them get blood work done and you're like oh you're ah you're allergic to cashews or something The problem is you're eating too many cashews. Ah then it feels like. 08:13.25 mikebledsoe Yeah. 08:17.85 Max Shank Oh how could I have known that you know what I mean it feels like okay that they didn't figure it out themselves. So they're not afraid to feel dumb. Ah so complex solution else I'm dumb and then the next thing you said was. 08:22.91 mikebledsoe Yeah, well I think I think that's a. 08:34.47 Max Shank That effort is proportional to the reward. But. 08:40.71 mikebledsoe Are you are you? okay. Are we on? Ah are we on a lag. Okay, what if your internet's just crawling I think I think it might have caught up. Sorry go ahead, go ahead cause I said something and then it took you like 10 seconds to. 08:45.66 Max Shank Was that? yeah. 08:55.39 Max Shank Maybe. 09:01.59 Max Shank Oh man, it's possible. Oh. 09:05.26 mikebledsoe Respond go ahead. 09:11.16 Max Shank Oh no, yeah I just stopped talking. But yeah, basically then the second idea is that effort is proportional to the reward that you get. 09:20.33 mikebledsoe Um, yeah, yeah, it's ah what it works it works for a yeah, it works it works for a while. Yeah I think our our shit's catching up. Um. 09:29.90 Max Shank Ah, it's hard to tell if we're on pace right now. 09:38.74 mikebledsoe Everyone listening I think we're having a little bit of a internet lag issue. Um, yeah, yeah, well you know I I know you and I both spent our youth living in a world where effort did equal reward and I think that there's like a. 09:42.21 Max Shank Technical difficulties. 09:58.59 mikebledsoe And and I think that in fitness, especially that definitely proves to be true until a certain point and ah you only know your own body for and so if you if you've been in fitness your whole life like max and I have been It's probably until the age of like 30 that. It almost didn't matter how what the quality of our exercise was to our knowledge from our perspective and then after 38 things start showing up for sure. But ah. You know going back I I look at myself and I and I can say oh I could have trained way more intelligently way more simply had fewer injuries and gotten a lot stronger and I'd be a lot stronger and healthier now. But yeah I there's no way I could hear that message when I was younger because every time I put in effort I got a reward and I didn't know that the reward could have been better but you know it was a reward nonetheless. So I think that I witnessed this and and entrepreneurs have a fitness or military background and. Usually they they choose the hard path a lot There's like a lot of hard path choosing in with in over time the harder the path the lower the reward and so there there's ah a point in time where it's you got to switch tracks. But the the thing that you were getting at or the thing you mentioned with the like the food sensitivity and so needing someone outside of yourself to tell you what it is is is interesting because these food sensivity tests aren't going to test for everything and then they'll tell someone like. 11:28.21 Max Shank Well. 11:45.12 mikebledsoe Food sensitive tests would tell me that dates are fine for me. But every time I eat dates I fart for two days they're not fine for me but like if I only but people will will take a test and then they won't analyze their own shit in a toilet and be like oh I'm fine I got the test I don't need. You know to watch my my intake of you know dairy you know every time it I eat it. It bloats me but the test said I'm fine. So but that's that's 1 thing I guess ah I'd like for people to take from this is. Tuning into your own body and knowing what you may have a sensitivity to how do you respond to all these different types of stimulus and it requires a little bit of living a little like habitual and systematic because if you don't systemize anything. 12:32.30 Max Shank A. 12:40.31 mikebledsoe You know, doing anything Systematically, you can't really improve it. You got to it. There's a way of decreasing the amount of variables in your own life. So that you can make those systematic improvements. 12:53.79 Max Shank Man There's a lot to unpack here. Um number one effort is not proportional to reward but effort does bring reward so one of the big risks I think is you will. 13:04.77 mikebledsoe Right. 13:13.45 Max Shank Put in effort and you will get a reward and you will conflate more effort with more reward but in actuality the way the body works for athletic performance which I think is the most rational way to train. You want to give yourself more athletic ability more springiness more elasticity more resilience to injury. Um, you're not going to improve your athleticism. When you go into excessive effort. In fact, you're actually going to start taking away from your athleticism with excessive effort. You know the best athletes in the world are the ones who can cycle between tension and relaxation at the quickest interval and it's not about. Maximum effort. It's about maximum skill so you're far better off hovering around that you know 50 to 80% effort level most of the time. So the whole idea that effort is proportional toward is like ah basically a form of masochism. Essentially like if I'm not ah in some sort of physical pain then my workout which is another silly name is not giving me the results that I'm after so that's ah the the myth of effort is ah a huge one. For athleticism and for training in general and then touching on the nutrition thing. Ah there's a ah couple pages in Paul check's book where he shows like a. 15:05.46 mikebledsoe The poopy police. 15:04.54 Max Shank The the poopy lineup I don't know if you remember that one the poop. Well yeah, the poopy police and the poopy lineup is like what the different ones look like and what likely the problem is and that there's just there's just one. 15:10.79 mikebledsoe Yeah. 15:19.93 Max Shank On the next page which is just this basketball player who's this like gigantic log which is the optimal ah defecation essentially so being willing to like pay attention to that very obvious metric and. Ah, just accordingly is basically the type of thing that we are trying to avoid most people want to avoid paying attention. They just want someone to tell them how many almonds should I eat at nine thirty in the morning. should I have for lunch what should I have for dinner and the reality is people are just trying to get out of the responsibility of having to think for themselves and pay attention to what the fuck is going on and your body. Can survive on like bone marrow and bugs like our bodies are so crazy. Adaptable. We are omnivores. We have these sharp canines we have these grinding molars we have stomach acid. We're able to survive on a huge variety of things I'm not saying you should eat garbage every day. But if you did you would probably still survive as long as you didn't eat actual poison so trying to be perfect with nutrition. Silly, but um, you don't see a lot of obese people make it to ninety years old and we don't need any scientific study to show us that being too heavy is harder on your body like you just won't live as long so you're almost. You are better off eating more rich food that is to let you know a bagette and butter and lasagna. Whatever else gets labeled as bad now as long as you don't eat too much of it and as far as training is concerned. Ah, try to make it as effortless as possible and do something that you enjoy that gives you an expanded range of abilities so you have more options because if you're having fun doing what you're doing. It doesn't require any of that extra willpower. Um, you know that's a little suspect to your mood and the weather and things like that. But if you're really excited about something. You don't have to really think about it. So with the nutrition and with the exercise piece I would say um. 18:09.47 Max Shank Consistency and effortlessness with your movement so approach it like a skill for movement and then with nutrition is like ah you got to pay attention to how food makes you feel and it's it's easy to want to outsource that to someone else just tell me. How many grams of chicken breast I need to eat. It's like that's not how it works man like you gotta pay attention to your bowel movements and check the color of your piss like if you don't drink enough water and go for walks. You shouldn't expect to get a good result with what you're doing and I actually wrote an article. A while back called are you healthier than a plant and it was one of my better performing ones because I gave people like four levels of health and plant level was the first level and it was are you getting adequate water and sunshine. And if you have made that level then you go to the next level the next level is like I think it was dog like are you getting water sunshine and going for walks and then like the last level was like a ah monkey like are you do you play? Do you do things like that and there are four I can't remember off top the head. But. Should Google it. It's a good little read. Ah, it's not complicated and you shouldn't feel like you have to find a complicated solution to health. You know we we were able to live a long time and happily long before the. 19:44.00 mikebledsoe Yeah I want to dig into here in a moment by the end of the show at least I want to dig into what it is that you're doing and what I'm doing that is that we because I you and I have both simplified over the years. 19:43.49 Max Shank Infinite information of the internet. 20:01.74 mikebledsoe Ah I used to take a much more complex approach to things. Um and and you did too from what I understand but you know I want to really get to the remind people of the point you're making of it. It needs to be simple. It needs to be easy. It needs to be fun. And 1 of the things that I've been able to do in my life is create a lot of structures in my life that support the the habits that I that I want to put in place I tell people a lot you know I'll be at a party and there's brownies out on the fucking island. Counter and I put away more than most people at the party but and I'm also when a few people walk around with a 6 pack but the difference is is I don't have that at home because I don't I actually have a life where I don't have to practice that much willpower. There's a few things I have to practice willpower for but Jesus there. There was a time in my life where that was true when I was in my twenty s it I powered through everything I I did start creating structures that support me. 21:01.35 Max Shank Imagine if you did. 21:20.45 mikebledsoe But most of it was was I think being just a bachelor in some ways like at ah at a fucking heavy bag hanging in my living room and you know girls that come over and be like oh you got mats in a heavy bag in your living room. Okay weirdo um, but. When I like like putting those structures in place have been super super helpful and then it really does come down to lifestyle and the more I look at the the health problems in the world man there is. There are some habits that somebody could change like I think about my girlfriend's mom and you know we were talking to her about when she was here for Christmas we were talking to her about you know? are you going for walks. How much water are you drinking. You know, are you supplementing with magnesium before bed. You know there's you know I had to remind my girlfriend. She's like I want to have a ah really good impact on my mom while she's here I'm like okay, let's be happy if she leaves with like 1 or 2 things that she can improve. We don't need to go nuts because you have to restructure. 22:29.84 Max Shank A. 22:35.17 mikebledsoe Your entire life to just change one habit you move 1 thing and then that 1 thing moves something else and it's ah it's a big deal to create a new consistent habit and so I'm a big fan of seeing how effortless you can you can. Make a habit you know something like going for a walk in the morning is you know, put your change of like this this was advice. We used to get people that wanted to train in the gym in the morning, put your gym shoes and your change of clothes at the foot of your bed before you go to bed when you wake up, you know you got your. 23:08.60 Max Shank Right. 23:12.44 mikebledsoe Bottle of water on the counter you you walk out of your bedroom. You're wearing your workout clothes and you pick up your bottle like the next obvious step is you go to the gym or you you know you go for your walk or your run or whatever it is but I look at the society but then we're talking to her mom. And you know we had all these ideas about what she could do to improve her health and in in conversations I find out that she's in an office with no windows under fluorescent lights nine to eleven hours a day. 23:35.65 Max Shank A. 23:50.22 mikebledsoe At work and so she like she says why I do go for walks I get out of my office for like 10 minutes and then go for a walk and I go wow you know what? like that walk is actually not that like it's good that she's doing it. But it's not the highest leverage thing. And her arsenal. You know, just just putting a window in her office would be would be like a huge improvement and so it it does become very situational in a way but when I look at what's wrong with the health of. 24:10.20 Max Shank Um. M. 24:28.11 mikebledsoe Average American and then I hear stories like that and you know I try to think about what it's like to work at the grocery store when I go to the grocery store. What's it like to be a barber when I go to the barber a lot of the way these people are living their lives is just it's a lot of screens. It's a lot of artificial light. Um, and so I think that you know if for us to have a ah turnaround in Public Health. It's gonna require a pretty big shift in society at large and I well I was gonna say I don't want to discourage anybody because. 24:58.24 Max Shank Um, well it's like addiction. It's just ah. 25:07.32 mikebledsoe You do you do change the lifestyle one habit at a time but it's there. There's if you change one habit a month a year later you've got 12 new habits. Do you have a totally different lifestyle. That's that's very very possible. 25:09.27 Max Shank The. 25:20.10 Max Shank Um, yeah, boy you said a lot of really good stuff. There. Um, it's like addiction right? because 1 of the reasons I bring people back to fasting is not because it's the. Cure all um for every illness although it does seem to have like some of the best results in the cheapest way. It's funny that people keep looking for the fastest way to lose fat and it's literally called fasting it costs zero dollars 25:58.37 mikebledsoe I knew a guy who was charging thousands of dollars for a fasting retreat I was like ah you your main thing that you do is you don't eat. 25:58.80 Max Shank And people just keep looking for other things. But. 26:05.45 Max Shank Amazing. Did he also provide free room and board. 26:17.89 mikebledsoe Yeah, it's like a three day retreat thousands of dollars but you you know you're you're getting the equivalent of like one hundred and fifty dollars room but ah yeah. 26:18.83 Max Shank Ah, ah. 26:25.59 Max Shank Amazing. But that's exactly it is you need to the reason I say it's like addiction is um, what could be easier than to you know, stop drinking booze or stop doing heroin. Whatever it requires no effort whatsoever but the whole idea of being addicted to screens and you're substituting or you're using all of this time and all of this energy for things that don't love you back. Essentially. And I think of it like an intervention. The person has to be ready to accept that change first and foremost and there are other things that can help new lifestyle changes stick better. You can do it with somebody. That's huge, having someone that you go on walks with is definitely better. You know I have a standing ah exercise. Um. Session that I do with my friend Anders I have a standing weekly tennis session that I do with my friend Carson so it makes it a lot easier when you have someone else that you are ah doing it alongside your your vibe attracts your tribe right? So if you hang around. 27:49.32 mikebledsoe M. 27:52.91 Max Shank With people who tend to do more athletic things you're going to be more athletic yourself and if you hang around with ah food critics or something you're probably going to spend a lot of time eating too much so it's how do you get someone open. 28:06.27 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 28:12.78 Max Shank To that change and then how do you make that change. Um take the best. How do you get it to stick. 28:21.90 mikebledsoe Yeah I like this social component I I do a weekly workout on Tuesday mornings with some friends where it's been years since I've I've done a decent amount of intense exercise. But I rarely like pick up the heaviest thing possible. Or like or or push my ah my aerobic or anaerobic capacity very hard. But once a week I go train with a group of guys where everyone has got ah a decent fitness background. So no, one's moving poorly. But we're going to go in and push ourselves. And you know half the time. It's a crossfit style workout and I I get in there and I and I go do that workout because if I work out at home I'll just be moderate all the time I'll push it less frequently. But I go there and I push it really hard and that that. Is really a check-in with myself because I'm a decade older than almost all the guys at the session. So it's it's actually nice to go do that. So having that social component to do something you knew I think is is awesome. Um I'm curious. What is what are some of your like how does your week. Do you have like ah a typical week and do you have your week structured in a way sounds like you got you know that workout with anders and you got a tennis lesson. What's happening. What do you schedule in your week that. Set you up for success and and your day as well. 30:22.67 mikebledsoe Can you hear me. 30:32.55 Max Shank Hello hello can you hear me we should we should pause. Let me see if I can fix the the inner all right? So basically my weekly routine is what you were saying. Um. 30:33.87 mikebledsoe Yeah. 30:52.18 Max Shank Have my appointments that are set 1 training session with a friend one tennis session with a friend and my goals are longevity and tennis related right now. I was laughing the other day because I was watching a little tennis and I saw this guy there this professional tennis player and I was like oh my god that guy's got an amazing body for tennis and this guy is so skinny is like 6 2 1 70 meanwhile I'm five nine and I used to walk around £200 just like a jacked little like brick shit house essentially and that was how I wanted to be I wanted to be ah buff to the point where I was intimidating that was my that was my fitness goal at the time. 31:37.30 mikebledsoe Yeah. 31:47.99 mikebledsoe Ah, sounds familiar. 31:49.32 Max Shank So My my training reflected those goals heavier weights more weights. Lots of food move bigger weights faster all that stuff and now my goals are completely the opposite. That I want to be able to move around quickly. I don't want to be carrying around a ton of extra weight and it's kind of the same thing that I tell people as far as my morning routine is Concerned. It's like my morning routine would kill you my exercise routine. Would probably not be what you want because you have different goals than I do So I exercise every day I go totally based on feel I'm still you know stronger than. 99% of people in most ways I find that if you don't push to your absolute Limits. You can handle a tremendous amount of frequency when it comes to training you mentioned that you have a heavy bag. 33:02.40 mikebledsoe E. 33:01.92 Max Shank Or had a heavy bag in your living room I mean my house is full of various gym equipment like I have a huge like Monkey Bar Stall Bar gymnastics setup in the backyard with several. Ropes and pulleys and a sled and all kinds of stuff and then in the garage I have different isometric trainers that I've built and balance beams and platforms and all this Stuff. So I mean I. Am an experimenter when it comes to this kind of stuff. So a lot of the stuff I do is just experimenting on myself. Um, that being set. 33:46.50 mikebledsoe But sounds like you've created an environment where we're practicing movement and improving your skills is just so easy. There's there's no friction between you and jumping on the balance beam with a club. 34:02.30 Max Shank Totally um I do hill sprints about once a week and it's not the most fun. Um, it's about 1% as fun as playing tennis but I still do it anyway. So I guess I do occasionally. Exercise a little bit of willpower. Um, frankly I think most of the exercise plans that people do really don't take into consideration the actual goals they want. It's kind of just parroting what the last guy said when it comes to exercise. I think people want to be able to move around. Um athletically and quickly that's the most important thing because that gives you the opportunity to try more things I think it's important for be. People to be able to carry something kind of heavy. You know a sandbag bear hug Carrie throw a sandbag on 1 shoulder other shoulder do a couple squats with it I don't get down with the super heavy squatting. Don't think the risk reward is really there I don't think it's appropriate for most people I think like a body weight sandbag squat for 10 to 20 will take you pretty much as far as you need to go in that type of leg strength. Frankly I see the squat as more of a resting position than a position that should be loaded extremely heavily the deadlift and sprinting are far more appropriate for loading up the legs single leg deadlifting as well. 35:50.82 mikebledsoe I agree with that. Ah I've cut out I've cut out squatting I mean I might do some cattlebell squats. But yeah, the load you know it's single arm catabell Squat load is low Sandbag squats. But yeah, pushing on deadlives pushing on on sprints. 35:53.51 Max Shank Ah, pushing pulling the sled and. 36:10.35 mikebledsoe And just different plios I'm with you on that. 36:10.99 Max Shank It depends on what you're trying to get right? What are you trying to get out of it. Um, you know I think of the said principle primarily specific adaptation to impose Demand. That's how you're going to adapt and you're looking for a couple things. You're looking for the actual tissue to adapt so muscle bone Ligament Tendon. So That's the stuff and then you also have. The neurological efficiency which is recruiting more motor units. That's why gymnast and Olympic weightlifter can do greater feats of strength and create more force and more attention more torque even with the same amount. Muscle So they're able to do more with less because of the neurological efficiency and then you have ah motor control which is also specific to the task. So um. Balancing ah targeting like boxing another good example I know you're into marksmanship so being able to hold steady while you move your body around is a pretty good skill as well. So There's the skill aspect. 37:33.66 mikebledsoe Um. 37:39.90 Max Shank And there's the stimulus for the adaptation of the tissue and the neurological drive. Let's call it like how much muscle can you recruit with your thoughts which is kind of a trip so to keep things pretty simple. Try to focus on isometrics explosive movements and then the pump which is not necessarily trying to get as crazy of a pump as possible but it's more about trying to maintain tension on what I'm working. For at least a minute plus so I'm not fully locking out. Let's say or I'm not resting in between repetitions. So. There's not really a rest spot. Yeah, exactly So Those are. 38:27.59 mikebledsoe You getting that time under tension. 38:34.72 Max Shank Essentially the 3 big things that I try to focus on as far as the type of stimulus is concerned. Um, it also maximizes risk reward so the safety is very high on all those. 38:40.24 mikebledsoe On that that also. Yeah, listening to you makes me think about the the concept of minimum effective dose and like anytime I Yeah yeah, well, you're talking about. You know the the sad principle and. 38:51.88 Max Shank Oh yeah, like I'm ah fully autistic with it now. Yeah. 39:05.24 mikebledsoe Anytime I hear that I think minimum effective dose I look back on my weightlifting career and how many times did I do 2 or 3 more sets necessary to make an improvement between day one and day two and I actually. Diminish the amount of results I would get because I was again going back to what we were saying earlier in the show effort more effort equaled more reward and what would have been a lot better is a little bit of effort for fewer for less volume would have given me a much bigger bang for my buck. Yeah, and so like now when approaching exercise is did I go a little bit harder or heavier than last time. Okay, cool if I did I don't need to go another £10 I just did better than last time chill out I think I think the wendler. 39:40.54 Max Shank The. 40:00.30 mikebledsoe System actually does a good job of teaching that. 40:03.70 Max Shank Yeah I think it really depends on the goal if you are professional then it might be worthwhile to sacrifice some of your health for performance you know sumo wrestler offensive lineman in the Nfl. You're not going to live as long but you'll be a professional athlete and get all this glory. But if you are an amateur that's a huge advantage you can do it for fun and if you are playing the long game. You won't put. As much pressure on yourself with each training session. You won't say oh I have to leave the gym in a wheelchair after leg day and like look the reality is if you exercise for 10 years you're going to be very strong. 40:46.37 mikebledsoe Yeah. 41:00.67 Max Shank As long as you are getting the stimulus ah required for a little adaptation and on the other side of that coin a lot of the strongest hands I've ever seen are attached to plumbers. 41:17.99 mikebledsoe A. 41:20.60 Max Shank Because they just like use their hands all freaking day they're like twisting pipe on and off and using a wrench and they're like doing hard stuff all the time and then you know there are all these myths that we perpetuate to try to maintain our. Authority somehow they're like oh you're overtraining and I'm like this guy just did 5000 repetitions of the arm exercise that you said the person should only do 3 sets of 10 on like it makes no sense. It's all relative to the individual and you know this nuance. 41:49.50 mikebledsoe E. 41:58.49 Max Shank Is what people are trying to avoid right? They're like don't make me think just tell me how many squats I should do on Monday Wednesday and Friday okay, and then we have all of these studies that come out which are fucking embarrassing where it's like oh. 42:04.26 mikebledsoe M. 42:15.40 Max Shank We proved that squats were better than leg presses. It's like over a fiveweek period like what are you kidding me like we didn't measure lunges. We didn't measure ah sled pushing. We didn't test sprinting and how are you measuring leg strength are you on the fucking leg extension machine or some shit like that. And what are these people doing when they're not in the and like I understand the desire to do that. But the most difficult cost to understand in anything is opportunity cost. It's very difficult. It doesn't matter whether you're exercising. Or whether you are investing. It's very difficult to say what should I invest in should I invest into ah you know Microsoft or Apple in the you know early two thousand s or something like it's really hard to say like because. You know opportunity cost is about the cost of everything else. You could be doing instead of that thing and that's how I became so hardcore in this philosophy that I've developed which is like what am I sacrificing by doing. Heavy back squats. What am I gaining from doing heavy back. Squats is this applicable to the broader population is it a good risk reward and what could I be doing instead and when you ask what could I be doing instead. It is a mind-blowing experience because you're like man I could like work on my footwork I could lunge I could pull a sled I could do step ups. You know, step ups are another exercise. It's like a friend zone exercise I called it in an article back in the day it was like side planks. And step ups and single arm rows. It's like so ah, that kind of leads me to my upper body training right now is like 80% um, pushing and pulling a cable or a band from a lunge position because it's very athletic position. It gives me the maximum carryover to being able to use that skill from a standing position and wouldn't you know most of the time. 44:28.65 mikebledsoe M. 44:44.66 Max Shank You need your strength when you are standing so it's shocking actually like I get some buff dudes coming in sometimes ah and they might bench like a lot of weight or something like that. But I put them in a lunge position. And do band presses at like a 45 degree and they have no rotational stability. They have no integrity through the foot and ankle to connect that entire kinetic chain and I mean we're talking like you know. £50 of force for one arm and they're like stumbling all over the place. They can't hold that position. They can't generate that force through the foot through the kinetic chain and finish it in their hand so being able to. Ah. Hold that athletic stance and shift the weight from a standing position while you push and pull with the upper body and it gives you a good opportunity to explore a diverse set of angles. That's that's like really sweet but it doesn't look that cool and it's. A little harder to measure like if someone says I yeah I benched you know 2 25 or 3 15 or whatever. There's like ah a certainty to it. It's like very cool if I'm like yeah a cable pressed £70 from a lunge position for. 1 minute using a sixty beat per minute metronome people are like I don't really know what to I don't really know what to make of that is that hard is that good and I'm like yes I also did some isometrics from that position earlier and the load didn't move at all. It's like. 46:36.59 mikebledsoe I I did so good. 46:39.54 Max Shank It's just not. it's it's it's um it's not quantitative in a way that is very satisfying so people usually avoid that and the same is true. Um in investing also a lot of the time the stuff that's really boring. Just. Quietly outperforms the market by like 20 to 1 you you get that kind of thing sometimes so ah, kind of went off on a good one. There. But basically there are fewer and fewer exercises that I gravitate toward. 46:58.84 mikebledsoe Yeah. 47:15.20 Max Shank In the light of athletic carryover and overall efficiency. But I I train a little bit every day because I recognize you don't have to like smash yourself to elicit that adaptation. And since I'm playing the long game. It's It's very psychological if I just train every day There's no confusion I can do what I want to but I'm not not doing nothing unless I feel really banged up which is. 47:50.68 mikebledsoe Yeah, um, over the years I've I've gotten more into whole body training each day training for like like you athleticism and you know when you're training the whole body and you're you're approaching it from a minimum effective dose. 47:51.24 Max Shank Pretty rare. 48:09.86 mikebledsoe Perspective then you're going to get wrecked way less often and because you're not just blowing out 1 group of muscles which means that you can your your movement patterns are Goingnna maintain integrity if you got a wheelchair yourself out after leg day like you were saying. You're you're probably damaging your motor patterns for athletic ability because how many days are you gonna walk weird when you could have been walking walking normal but to get yoke bro. 48:41.94 Max Shank Well and why are you doing that in the first place. It's a it's no, it's a but that's a trap like we think that. Ah, if we get all these muscles then the ladies are going to be like oh my god your muscles are so big. Ah you know, whatever, but that's not how it works at all. 49:01.30 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 49:01.93 Max Shank Like nobody cared. It's only a small section of the other like we're talking to mostly dudes I would imagine to this but we've probably scared away but was it se twenty second episode we probably scared away like most of the ladies I think. 49:10.75 mikebledsoe Um, I I so well I got ah I got a Dm the other day from a woman who listened to our our show on relationships and the one that I think we probably several times during the show said well now that all the women have left. 49:22.73 Max Shank Ah. 49:29.53 mikebledsoe She loved it and sent it. She's like I'm going to send this to every guy I go on a date with like I ah. 49:35.84 Max Shank Whoa That's amazing. There must be something wrong with her. No I'm kidding if you're if you're listening. You're probably really great. Yeah, that's awesome. 49:49.50 mikebledsoe She's listening for sure. We appreciate you. 49:53.39 Max Shank Ah, no like if we're talking to dudes mostly like girls don't care about that like that is the trying to build big muscles to attract ladies is one of the worst cost benefit. You could do. It's gonna take so much effort to build muscle. And it's gonna have almost no impact on your love life. It's gonna have you should exercise because exercising makes you feel better about yourself. It makes you more physically capable but exercising specifically for larger muscles is. Ah, trap. You're not going to be as athletic and quite frankly, a lot of the way your muscles look is going to come down to your genetics anyway, I've seen some crazy examples where you get a gymnast I think he was the number 1 pommel horse guy. Can you think of like a more insane upper body exercise than the pommel horse like the pommel horse and the rings those guys are like freaks this guy can't remember his name I have it somewhere. Ah dude he couldn't sell protein powder on Instagram. 50:56.94 mikebledsoe So crazy. 51:09.23 mikebledsoe He. 51:11.52 Max Shank His arms were so scrawny he looked like the before picture for a protein powder ad for like some high school kid but he was so crazy strong and I'm just thinking like man all these programs out there that are like trained like a gymnast and it's like. Now, you're doing pushups and pullups on the rings and that's going to that's good to suddenly turn you into like this jacked gymnast body and you know I understand it's the ah progressive promises of advertising. Right? not not 8 minute abs 7 minute abs not 7 minute abs 6 minute abs 4 minute abs and then it's like you're going to build £10 of muscle in a month and I'm like if you're hitting puberty and doing steroids at the same time that might be possible. But. You know it's just these ridiculous expectations and that's another trap too is don't expect like an 8 to twelve week solution for you know, athletics and muscle building like even the idea of that. Is. It's just crazy to me like if you want to have long-term success. You have to like go into it thinking I'm going to make a lifestyle change and I'm going to train until I'm dead. That's that's the smart play there not like I'm gonna try to you know. 52:42.28 mikebledsoe Um, yeah, why that but the the further we look out and the further we set our goals the better. Our decisions will be from day to day you know people are setting a twelve week 52:47.35 Max Shank Whatever in eight weeks I mean I could just go on a good one here but go on. 53:01.77 mikebledsoe Goal which is you know? ah in twelve weeks I want a pr or I want to achieve this thing if you're always in a if you're always in a twelve week block and that does work when you're younger for sure. But if you're always thinking in twelve week blocks and you're not thinking about. 53:08.37 Max Shank Can be good. 53:19.14 mikebledsoe What about 3 twelve week blocks from now you're going to and you know you pick up well back in the day when I was a kid you know picking up a magazine. It's like you know a 6 weekek program or twelve week program to bigger pecs or whatever it is and if you're always training like that then you're. 53:27.64 Max Shank 7 53:37.48 mikebledsoe You're not going to age well. But if you go what is my 10 year goal like I have I have an end of life goal I'm working 100 years into the future and I say I'm training for 100 years from now. And my my goal is to be able to wipe my ass until a day I die being able to get enough thoracic rotation and be able to stand there and wipe my ass. That's a lot of old people can't do it. They cannot wipe their own ass and so. I um, yeah, yeah, well you know I'm 40 now sorry my my goals have become more practical but ah these the setting a goal that's ten years out you know I look I go what am I gonna how do I want to be when I'm 50. 54:13.53 Max Shank It's a very practical goal. 54:31.80 mikebledsoe And it it's and I train how I want to be when I'm 50 I train like that today. Yeah I'm moving towards that which really takes the stress from off of trying to be in a hurry to achieve anything. Yeah, if you're if you. If you're trying to make improvements in twelve weeks you're go to be in a hurry. You're probably not going to abide by the minimum effective dose rule. You are going to give yourself a maximal dose you may value intensity over frequency. I find that having a longer term goal when I when I turned in my short term goals for longer term goals. Um I started seeing the value in frequency over intensity I saw it's like oh I would rather squat every day a little bit. Then to squat a lot a bit one day and then be too sort of squat for a week so um I really like that's another thing that really comes with longer term planning is like you were saying you work out every day you yeah you have a movement practice every day I have the same thing I move. Every day. Um I'd say about once a month I take a day where I just I get up and I don't move I just completely just let it all go which is fine. Um, which I think is pretty healthy. But yeah I value frequency over intensity and I think that. 56:02.52 Max Shank Become the couch. 56:05.89 mikebledsoe Yeah, and then that does I think that is impacted by having a longer term goal I'm like look I got 10 years this is more about and it's also a little bit easier for us because we're maintaining a pretty solid base so there's like um if I am as good as I am. 56:21.64 Max Shank Yeah, yeah. 56:25.32 mikebledsoe Now in 10 years I'm fucking excited about it. So there's also something to be set for that. No. 56:30.90 Max Shank Right? Yeah, lots of good stuff there too I think pretty much hurrying or being greedy is what hurts people the most that might be the only thing that hurts people. 56:44.60 mikebledsoe E. 56:49.50 Max Shank They're greedy for more range of motion. They're greedy because they're not willing to wait for the results that will come if they're patient. That's true with so many things very novel concept. Um. 56:55.50 mikebledsoe Um. 57:05.50 Max Shank However, I would say that just the same way. You could take a year long goal or a 5 year goal and break it down into steps I think it can be beneficial to have a twelve week goal sometimes if you're approaching it with that patience in mind. 57:20.53 mikebledsoe Yeah I mean I'm I'm a big fan of breaking down 10 years into 3 year to 1 year to twelve weeks same in in business. Um I just when I was younger I didn't have 10 year goals yeah I didn't have 10 year goals when I was 22 I I wanted to make it to. 57:24.81 Max Shank Yeah, yeah, exactly I figured you meant that too. Yeah. 57:39.87 mikebledsoe To get to national championships this year and which meant that I needed to qualify you know this year for for that and which means I need to boom boom boom and definitely wasn't planning like i. 57:53.77 Max Shank Right. 57:56.25 mikebledsoe In my head I'm like yeah I'll still be doing this in 5 years but I had 0 fucking plan on how to be how I was gonna be doing that 5 years ah yeah 58:04.46 Max Shank Yeah, it's tribalism usually that leads us toward these very artificial goals like the whole idea that your self worth is somehow going to be influenced by the amount of pounds you can lift. Is one of those absurd things that would be so difficult to explain to an alien. It's like wait. What? like Yeah yeah, if I I if I lift ah a weight in this certain way then the members of my tribe will love me quite a lot more and I will be revered for this. And here's the funny part that 100 % happened with me 100% um, and I felt good and people were like wow max you're so good. Not verbatim. They didn't say that but essentially that was the message. Wow you're so good and I was like wow you know. 58:44.82 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 59:01.23 Max Shank Feel really good now and I was like how about if I lift a few more pounds Next time they're like then you would be even more good and so it's just this self-fulfilling Prophecy even better. Ah yeah, ah well, it's like sometimes. 59:08.23 mikebledsoe You be even better Will love you more. 59:21.14 Max Shank When I'm doing Hill sprints I go I'm not even chasing anything or anybody like what am I doing out here shouldn't I be chasing something ah when I'm when I'm doing Sandbag carries. 59:28.66 mikebledsoe Um, I used to I used to a warm up where I would chase my dog around the gym. 59:36.97 Max Shank I'm doing Sandbag carries I'm like shouldn't I be building a wall. It just feels like very silly sometimes so that's if I'm going to be training if I'm going to be exercising. It should be extremely efficient. 59:39.62 mikebledsoe Maybe maybe you should be. 59:56.43 Max Shank You know I should be maximizing the amount of force that I can create and minimizing the risk of injuring myself otherwise I should like go play something that requires no willpower. That's fun I mean playing games. Like tennis or wrestling or something like that is like way more fun than lifting weights. But I just know that there is still a value in that minimum effective dose of training. 01:00:25.68 mikebledsoe Um, yeah, it's actually kind of nice because training doesn't have to be as hard as it used to be getting getting in the gym is a lot easier when when you're thinking through that minimum effective dose mentality. 01:00:33.97 Max Shank So what is it. 01:00:40.16 Max Shank Oh my God Well I mean it depends What tribe you're part of dude. Yeah I mean depends which tribe you're part of if your tribe reveres a soul crushing effort. 01:00:45.31 mikebledsoe Yeah, it's true. Yeah I'm part of a tribe where I don't really ah I'm I'm one of the most fit people. Yeah. 01:01:00.97 Max Shank Well and our society already doesn't really revere people who are physically strong as much as people who are mentally capable who can deliver value right. 01:01:12.91 mikebledsoe Yeah, why I I Um I've been in conversations with some people and I could tell that they really value I think we're our lag is fucked up again. 01:01:20.16 Max Shank So. 01:01:42.10 Max Shank All right? ah closing thoughts here's what I got if you want to live long and prosper. It's important to have friends. It's important to have. Ah, reason to get up out of bed. We didn't talk about that very much but it's very important exercising is important. But if all you did was walk and do taichi that would probably still allow you to live a very long time. It just wouldn't give you tons of options. For high level athletics like tennis surfing etc. As far as nutrition is concerned. Ah there aren't too many fields that have been more abused with misinformation outright lies and those damn statistics. And nutrition so I would focus on eating food that you like examining your bowel movements and just don't eat too much drink enough water get some sunshine not complicated stuff the more you. Engage with a tribe who also exhibits these healthy habits the easier it's going to be so don't make it complicated but try to make it as attractive and automatic as possible. Ah don't rely on your memory. To think of going for a walk if you are sitting in a desk for a long period of time set a timer like we have this divergence of people who have learned how to use the pocket supercomputers and people who are being used by. Pocket supercomputers so set an alarm 5 minutes is more than enough ah to break whatever pattern you're in to move lymph around There are all kinds of problems that are caused by the lack of lymphatic flow. Cause it doesn't have a pump I mean I could go on and on but I'm gonna go ahead and leave it there today. This is of course all the stuff we're talking about is the philosophy that I have had in mind as I've developed my training programs. So if you want. A more complete understanding of the athletics side of things then you can check any of them out at http://mashank.com. 01:04:12.23 mikebledsoe Right on? Ah yeah, my my closing thoughts on this is have ah have a 10 year plan for your fitness goals and for your health goals and really avoid being in a hurry. So take your time go slowly I'd say 80% of my training is done moderately at a at a slow pace and then 20%. It's probably more like ninety ten but that ten or twenty percent is done. You know high intensity with some speed or something like that. 01:04:31.53 Max Shank A. 01:04:50.17 mikebledsoe And I found that to to treat me a lot better over time and one of the things I didn't mention that that I think is super important is one of the things that I do is I book myself first on Monday morning. So every day i. Log into my computer to look at what he and do for work but on Monday morning. The first thing I do is I book out what I'm doing for my training and what I'm doing for recovery and what I'm doing for my fun so I know and I block it on my calendar. No one can schedule anything during those times and so that ah. You know we do tend to live by the supercomputer in our pocket and I I will program in there like I don't take meetings before ten I don't take meetings after 5 and I have all my social activities scheduled in there and I have. You know I go do my sauna and cold plunge in the evenings and I've got that scheduled in I know what day I'm gonna go to the float tank I know when I'm doing what and if for some reason I mean I I can't remember the last time I sacrificed something that I had put on the schedule. So um I I become. Very protective of it over over the years and so I think that that's if I could advise people to do anything that I think is gonna have the biggest impact is put something in the schedule on your calendar that you're gonna do for yourself. Ah. Check in with that every single week and you're gonna make a lot of progress in that area. So thanks for joining us today really enjoyed having this conversation. We're gonna dig more into this in future shows and yeah. Your coach I've got a a live event coming up the strong coach summit and go to http://thestrongcoach.com/summit and check that out. We'll be doing some movement nutrition stuff there as well. I'm trying to get max out there I haven't gotten a definite answer from him yet. Yeah. But thanks for joining us today. Thanks for joining me max. Love you brother and we'll see y'all next time see you' all next monday. 01:07:05.52 Max Shank Thank you buddy! Love you.
