But really i want people to appreciate might take from my friends. We should be getting wholefoods whenever we can ask to be honest. It's tough to be hitting some of these things and sort of maxing out on the levels of vitamins and minerals sometimes. Just because you know. You can't do it and i will say generally speaking we don't take a ton of supplements and star at household. We really focus on ones that we think have high quality ingredients and will actually make a difference for us and one of the things that all four star at take every single day is essentially complex. It's a no brainer especially since look. I'm recovering from this little surgery. Ed just little just a little. One researcher need replacement connective tissue. Health is the thing the fasha is the thing. and if you're not having like frontloading vitamin c. You're missing out on having connective tissue. Like the possibility of red connective tissue. Doesn't you could be eating all the protein not getting enough vitamin c means. You're not you don't have me will you. Don't have the building blocks to do what you need to do.

My friend thank you for having me. It is a high honor to sit with you on this friday midget right to the burning question. Everyone has which is. I feel like your ears aren't very good backside one. That's because you're the second adult size man who actually back squats and muscle mass. I mean that's the kind of thing on you on the internet. You know what it's the truth and baxter's have been the bane of my existence since time just because everyone has a thing that they that they're not that is like their achilles heel like tony hawk. I forget there's a trick that he can't do the watts he's like yeah. I can't i just can't grab my boy that way. That's why i always with this win all but Yeah back are.

Dominance is something that we say around the yard is that because you you don't you're too quad dominant or you wanna be quad dominant like that guy's quad dominant check out the quad dominance on that woman i was one squad dominant and then i learned how to recruit everything that was going on behind me and became a better athlete and so yeah now. The the quad dominance has ended. We have so much to to start with. But let's take a slightly different tack for second because a quick bio of you which everyone is heard. And i think you're living under a rock if you haven't been involved in action sports and all of the advocacy that you've been doing for a minute. Don't think you're gonna skip over all those questions coming back on me on a but you have seen the evolution of these will call. I don't actually sport is in the right word. Lifestyle sports.
