"So a peak state is a peak state right so when you breathe thirty Wim Hof breasts and jump into the ice back. You're going to feel amazing all all sorts of things going on but it's not gonNA evolve you as a human being. No it's not gonNA change anything except make you feel good in the moment and like we talked earlier actually might cause was some women motioning. Rods women doesn't actually do that when he gets in the ice right like if you watch him break the world record occurred like for an hour and fifty two minutes and ice. He's sitting there. Doing a touma like Brandon I since locust controlled slow like controlling has gotten ice bath with Joe Asana new podcast that kind of question breath and I was like I was comfortable wii going. Could we get out of this thing. Now you're on my turfing out you can give me up on one of your obstacles and laugh at me out when you stop asking. You know the the colds great but what I think people really miss about it and this is why we teach we teach an exposure clinic and it's not just even though we use ice and he'd it's not about the ice and he writes exposure right. What's expose right through a broad range of experiences? Exactly Apple's audio working in what is that big thing you can use and it comes back to. Oh you're breath the moment I've got control of my breathing breathing I'm in control my physiology. I'm in control of what's actually happening to my mind. It's safe to say this. The single most important leadership tool also because again. It's going to be what's going to keep you from embarrassing yourself in front of your team or it's going to allow how you to give the presentation with absolute authenticity presence. You know I can't tell you how I can't tell you but you're gonNa tell me right back. I mean you've been on this train man on this train for long from a leadership perspective bright because if it enhances awareness by we're so passionate about it because personal experience we're not coming up. This is like scientists studied. Maybe you are. But you're also practitioner absolutely partition of first right. Yeah so my introductory wrestling US was yoga. Actually right that was my first. Introduction was through yoga practice did It's amazing power stuff but I would say awareness means perspective so ramone leadership standpoint having a more broad perspective also allows you to navigate difficult situations per and personalities alleys peeled through organizing. People is one of the hardest things that you can do because intervenes are so unpredictable and so being able to maintain perspective active allows you to manage those situations with some grace and not returning to or like a cutthroat you know utilitarian were just like this guy to new. I wanted so right off so we have probably wrap up pretty soon here. What is like the seminar? You'RE GONNA give tomorrow and San Diego what would be like the beyond setting up the stage with your lectures and all that when you put people either on the ground a chair okay. Now we'll do our first lesson first practical exercise. What does that look like when we start the day with our very first practical exercise so before for any lecture we want people to feel it because being able to feel it is not been? You ought to take my word for right so we do a protocol first thing in the morning that directs. Everybody's focusing awareness out of the gate And it takes about five minutes and it's a combination of a slow-breathing protocol a fast breathing protocol to get kind of in a sweet spot and arousal where nobody's GonNa feel over stimulated but they will be drowsy early in the morning either so it's kind of like a half calf dragon. will be disappointed but the people who aren't aware of it will we'll be like. Oh Yeah Yeah and Every community that we this protocol particular step up and it's kind of like finding a sweet spot in your arousal spectrum and it helps people get really attentive and focus and there is a palpable shift in the participants and the instructors notice it and they notice it not only in themselves wooden others you can feel a change. Between sort of the CHATTY NECE and sort of unsettled nature of not knowing what to expect. And who's GonNa talk and you know how to do. I have the right t shirt on and all that stuff to who is this in front of me. And what information will I get And it makes for a really positive start to the day that's awesome that's awesome restart every of our everyone in our training with the except for the Corre camp. That's a different. Let me start that with. Bullhorns is unbeatable. Mind trading the track that there is a model breath trading and I just got an email from someone like I Graduate Choral forty three and extraordinary life changing things blah blah blah. But one thing is always puzzled me said I always experience like delayed onset. Soreness soreness an official term for that. You know I go out on one hundred Mile Rockin for a week and everything and so I just expected that. With Kirk oral camp. I would have this. I'm up for fifty hours doing in this enormous amount of work physical work that I would have delayed onset soreness ernest and be sore for a month and he didn't use up about the next week. which is common? That's the more common experience is Kinda like seals. Go through Hell Week and we're back training Monday. After seven days of non-stop physical training and I really think it comes down to the breath. We're teaching them how to breathe. The breath is constantly you know basically helping to rebalance the body and to eliminate the toxins that are causing the sewing quite possibly could be because there's probably other factors the hydration. I the constant. What about the prep that you send out for people prior to coming to crude you send out a wrapped event? Yeah and I'm probably betting that prep is something new to one of those folks to getting the tissue in the body ready bought I do. I'm of sound line because my own experience that the a change of reading and understanding my breath work and understanding my breath practice and what it is I do for exercise has changed all of that. You're changing the PH of the body. You're changing how acidic it gets right right so you're changing health and is moving energy which is moving up toxins. You WANNA burn. You WanNa burn more a few one of them. Burn more sugar that is gonNA mean you're probably GonNa Bring on Don's a lot sooner. Those types of things are are probably connected pretty he well. High intensity anaerobic effort is the add six hours in the ocean. Yeah which is going back to recovery at all the hydration which now most people think they hydrate but they don't yeah but when you sending someone for throughout fifty yards drink drink drink drink and actually stay pretty hydrated traded. I I you know. I didn't want to sit interesting thing to think about is like Oh yeah but to make clear about like what we're saying with lot of the stuff and you know if you go in anaerobic but it's that's it's not bad like it took me a couple of years but in two years I can operate it. Roughly Ninety five percent of Max ouray knows only absolutely like so. That is a possibility for anybody to do in. That means almost any work out I do. I can operate just choosing that to a large degree until the end. If I want gas more I can do throw Daghir in and go. You know I do know that for long term. That's GONNA the bigger cost. Yeah if you just want to get a little taller yeah ask. That's all right. Oh man talk about this forever but you're you're seminars called called Arda breath yet. Yes scrape all of that. So we've got the regular Arctic breath on Saturday and then the exposure on Sunday. Yeah and audio a website for this business that you guys have organized an off power speakers so that our home the home base and seminars that we offered this is the one seminar we offer and he so so people can find out more at power speed endurance dot com correct word slash ashort of breasts forward slash breath. And how like if they wanted to reach out and talk to you in person. Is that possible yet. Go through said citing INFO at Info at indoors orders Yup.

I'm looking for next time that we get to see each other. So Brian all the best. And then when that's up mixture, you pigmy either social or Email or whatever.

"What was the most impactful thing in your life? The most impactful for you couldn't have been putting on the mask. And I I don't know why it's not I don't think that it's you falling. But getting concussed, you know, but what is it for you? Maybe it was one of those. I don't know. Or maybe it's totally something different. I mean. There's so many things. The really are an not in looking at all of these things they it's it's a culmination of being accepting of the fact that like they all happen for a reason. And you know, like a guy who I've worked with for quite some time. Who's an engineer NASA? He's absolutely A Beautiful Mind like he's genius genius. And you know, he came to me six years ago to to work with him and metro him through some stuff, and he's far far more intelligent than I bought. And I knew when I really engaged in this process that I was gonna get more out of it. But he he's also young right? Like, he's thirty any just buried himself. Like, he will work all day, you know, at work, and then he'll come home to his family and spend time with them as soon as they go to bed. He works again on stuff that he's really passionate about. He goes till about one thirty in the morning, and then he goes to bed, and then he wakes up at like five thirty six block in the morning. And sometimes she does all nighters and things like that. And you know, we've tried to go through this. This is a dead end process. And you know, he he hit some walls with that. And he recently went to the ER for some stomach pains. And he realized that, you know, maybe I, you know, maybe maybe some of these things coming the Brian well in it's not even about listening to me at this point. It's like, hey, man, you can keep doing this. But just so, you know, your wife who's sending me pictures of you in the are, you know, like laughing about this because you just don't wanna listen to her whatever if he he and I both understand that I literally said to him look. We could both look at my accident. Or we look at what happened to me on may twenty six me going up that ladder in hitting my head saying that's an accident. But the fact of the matter is is that's probably just as much of the process that I put myself into that. You just have. And if I'm on willing to look at the depth of that possibility of the depth of that. Then why like I I'm like, I I feel like it's my duty to look at the possibility of that. And so I can't say that it's necessarily an accident. It something that happened in. I wasn't paying attention in yet. I've trained pay attention for stuff like that all the time. So you know, whatever I could I'm not beating myself up about this. It happened for a reason mess, I need to pay attention to that reason. So maybe I need to be a little bit more aware of little things like that my life, you know, to not put myself in that position. Right. Little things. Like what though playing with your nephews or like running up jungle gyms in the manner that I was doing like, you know, trying whatever I it's like we could look like I'm not saying like a not for like, I don't want this to necessarily come off as though like, hey, I'm like I was wrong in playing with my my nephew's. Absolutely. That's not it. There's there's layers to everything in its I really wanted to. Stand those very deep layers, and I can of course, like say this is an accident. But I also can say maybe it wasn't. Yeah. Okay. Cool. I get it for you for their in of all things..

"R I b e the hyphen will auto populate when you enter it. So it's T H E R I B so accept the invite to join our community to join the page. So that's end if you haven't gotten loop yet, and you to be part of what we're talking about here punch over to whoop dot com Ford slash finding mastery. They gotta deal force as well mixture you sign up using finding master to get that deal. It's all one word all caps. So now, let's jump right back into our conversation. I know you're bullish on interval training. What would you do with some breathing training around that knowing that you are at the tip of the spear when it comes to breathing work if so one of the issues that we've seen him. We'll just use a cross athlete for is an example. And by all purposes, we all can make fun of cross sport if we want, but fact, is this stage in the game most elite cross athletes are better than the majority of people competing at their own sports that being said, so and I mean, not across the boards, right? Like, so you've gotten Olympic weightlifting you've got our runner or you've got a, you know, if you look at the vast majority of people like the the marathon row these kids just did at the cross it gains. They were finishing. I wouldn't say better the elite merit like elite rowers would. But the vast vast majority of rowers rowing marathon, they were beating now those are two very different ends of the spectrum. But when you look at this one of the key things because I I had thought I had five athletes at the games. Shoe right that I've worked with an illness. Exact same stuff because they're trying to increase their endurance capacity. Right. And when we use things like nasal, breathing, it it's there for a a threefold thing that we use within the art of breath, which is mechanics physiology in state, and if it affects one of these things it affects all of these things. So if I'm trying to nasal three in a position, and I'm trying to work, and I'm working harder than I am capable of. I'm going to end up dumping or I'm in a bad position mechanics. I'm going to end up needing to open my mouth. So it's one or the other or I'm freaking out. Right. I'm going to my mouth gonna drop. You know? Alexa, shea sharp came into play right lane. A big old sharp, boom, you'd react breathing with change instantly. We know that's how the brain is set up with breathing. If you're not paired for it. If you haven't trained for it. It's just something you're not going to be able to deal. With that being said, if I'm mechanically not sound, I'm probably going to be a mouth breeder. So we clean that up with these kids in any athletes for that matter because I work with plenty of different athletes. Is we show them that you know? Three quarters or at let's say, we're doing a five minute effort. If you're one minute into that five minute effort, you've got mouth breathe were probably dealing with a mechanical shit. So I need you to back off and change your position. So that you can actually breathe through your nose. And that means they're going to slow down to a pace that they don't like. And that's an ego check. And then, but but that's also a metabolic check. Because the moment you're opening your mouth were very aware at this point that you're now burning more gliding, you're more sympathetic dawn. So you're tapping into energy systems that aren't necessarily needed for energy at that point. So what we're trying to do is make you more metabolic leaf fishing by developing that aerobic those aerobic levels..

"Where we I my the first book, I wrote is called power speed into arms and. That was really the cross of where we started looking at quality over quantity, and how to train for endurance events in in in a way that was, you know, not throwing your life away because you're not a professional athlete. But yet you're training like one and we've all done it. Right. You know, like, hey, let's just go out and put it in some miles and all that. And most people would would say that. But I we had changed. This whole structure of the way, we were training to where we we're using strength and conditioning. Lot more. We were using more skill development. We're using a lot more intensity with the work. We were doing and this bolstered a new way to kind of train for something. And I ended up running a hundred miles. A couple of hundred miles in the process of doing this as testing for along this stuff. And after I ran the first one I had in a Pitney ahead. This whole idea there's a piffling of totem that I wanted to do based on. Animals that existed in a civic northwest, tribes, kind of culture. With the meaning behind them. And that was why I wanted to get the work that I wanted to get done. Oh, so the the tattoo was for the totem was four years shrink owed the totem warriors. Yeah. I was like why would you take four years to train for one hundred mile are like a hundred thousand joke, but like now. Yeah. Okay. Okay. I got it backwards. Okay. And then so I didn't I didn't know the order. So unbreakable runner was your second Coa. Yeah. All right. So I'm not built for endurance. I'm more type to a fast twitchy type, but not burdened by them is the way that some of my friends like to say to me, you know, like, I'm not that. I'm not built for endurance. I'd rather be on the side of a cliff in Huck myself. Something large scary rather than do something for three four seven hours. Do you have any ways that when we talk about breathing and the value breathing? I've been watching from a distance some of the stuff that you talk about, you know, nose breathing a certain threshold stay at that threshold for awhile to build capacity inefficiency, and I'm wondering if I could ask you just a couple nerdy questions about that. So what hundred percent, okay? So so let's get into just that tactic for endurance pieces while we're just say, no, you're you're ninety percent of population. Okay. Only ten percent of the population really carries that endurance type, gene. To where we were actually looking at genetics like ninety percent of population carries that endurance, gene. Which is actually the Nollie Jane classic. What is what is? What is the, gene? I don't. I'm not familiar. Well, it really doesn't matter. But Leo, so everybody's into their genetic testing. Now in the fact that you can decipher between power power, and what's call it, endurance, and the vast majority of people fall into that power category, depending upon how much right, and that's actually be athletic, gene. This is why you see so many people doing well, it something like crossed it..

"I think within all my skin too. So when people see me, they see this kind of this other side of like what what it was. I grew up in. You know, and I'm not talking you're talking about your Inc. Yeah. When was your first to seventeen says young? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I even younger than that. I had a buddy of mine me, but it wasn't very visible. So like, but my first real tattoos at seventeen in which the coach like pulled me out of the water was like, what are you doing what he talking about? Anyway at a young age. What were you looking for because you just described I lived probably I don't know. What's maybe thirty miles north of you in California's well, and so the off access skate surf counterculture approach to life, not knowing the truth truth in seeking for just wanting to be okay? But vibe more with a bit of that angry side counterculture as opposed to the straight a side of you know, that's gonna get a figure my way much north. So so what were you looking for? I think I was looking for acceptance to a large degree I wanted to fit in and I did fit in and I I ended up become like having friends in all different groups left. I think I was the only guy or only person I knew by the end of highschool who had friends in every different little group that existed from the nerves to the jocks to the punks to the whatever like, you know. And and I, you know, it was a it was interesting because I didn't really put that together until I think like I I decided like, you know, I think the biggest change in my life came at about twenty three before I turned twenty four when I decide when I finally decided I was like all right? Okay. I gotta stop drinking and using drugs. And you know, I went into I went into the program. And I was you know, I had loved the party out. Hell how heavy was reduce alcohol was always there was just a big party thing in you know, I mean, I was probably. Really? I mean, I tell my wife at times it was like drinking like twenty thirty beers night. Like not every night. But when I'd go out army. You know, which is an astronomical amount of beer for K. But it's expensive too. The the interesting thing is is that it's like I started to understand that nature in I- I- Zeus did in hawks on animus in this place. And I went through very hard core phase of recovery with very hard core group in I had a grandmother who was kind of made the matriarch of of a FOX anonymous in Orange County, you know, she's pretty much responsible for women's recovery programs in homes all over the United States. She sponsored Betty Ford. So I had like this really red carpet thing that occurred for me. I so I literally never really felt like that is my thing. And then I allot of this stuff materialized. I don't wanna like like, I think recovery's is a pretty big thing for anybody. But I heard a kid say very early on when when I decided to kind of clean up was that. A was not the only way to get sober. But it was the way he chose to get sober, and I stopped with me. It was a profound statement because I was under the impression that as the only way to get sober. And you know, they got a good thing there. But they've also got a thing that's convincing people that that, you know, of something that you know, you can't grow out of where you can't deal with appropriately. And for me, it was you know, I found out my grandmother, probably was never an alcohol, and she just loved what happened when she came alcohol anonymous, and the fact is that it can work for anybody. Like, they say, right. And it that that was a real important part of my life because after about five years or so I started doing other therapy. Reading other things getting into other work, and that was about the same time. I really started to get into human performance understanding that in I'd always had an athletic back. Around had some coaching experiences in you know, all of that. But that kinda kicks started something that really changed kinda the might ecosystem entirely. A what was it about you that wanted to get sober? I I needed growth. Okay. A niece..

I mean, I tell my wife at times it was like drinking like twenty thirty beers night. Like not every night. But when I'd go out army. You know, which is an astronomical amount of beer for K. But it's expensive too. The the interesting thing is is that it's like I started to understand that nature in I- I- Zeus did in hawks on animus in this place. And I went through very hard core phase of recovery with very hard core group in I had a grandmother who was kind of made the matriarch of of a FOX anonymous in Orange County, you know, she's pretty much responsible for women's recovery programs in homes all over the United States. She sponsored Betty Ford. So I had like this really red carpet thing that occurred for me. I so I literally never really felt like that is my thing. And then I allot of this stuff materialized. I don't wanna like like, I think recovery's is a pretty big thing for anybody. But I heard a kid say very early on when when I decided to kind of clean up was that. A was not the only way to get sober. But it was the way he chose to get sober, and I stopped with me. It was a profound statement because I was under the impression that as the only way to get sober. And you know, they got a good thing there. But they've also got a thing that's convincing people that that, you know, of something that you know, you can't grow out of where you can't deal with appropriately. And for me, it was you know, I found out my grandmother, probably was never an alcohol, and she just loved what happened when she came alcohol anonymous, and the fact is that it can work for anybody. Like, they say, right. And it that that was a real important part of my life because after about five years or so I started doing other therapy. Reading other things getting into other work, and that was about the same time. I really started to get into human performance understanding that in I'd always had an athletic back. Around had some coaching experiences in you know, all of that. But that kinda kicks started something that really changed kinda the might ecosystem entirely. A what was it about you that wanted to get sober? I I needed growth. Okay. A niece..

"Ford slash finding mastery. Okay. Let's jump right back into the conversation. And then what are some of the things that you experience as a young kid? You talked about risk taking talking about basically being ready for the unpredictable, and, you know, whether he experiences, and I know it's everything it is a combination of everything. But if we can reduce it down to the big big rocks to get in the container. You know, what are couple stories or people or experiences that you had? Early days that could capture what prepared you n I'll just share this with you is that what you describing as much what semi warriors in their training in preparation for life and death isn't they realized from deep inside really true contemplation about the nature of their job in their duty is that they're going to die. And so then the the deep question is at the moment of death how and I don't mean by sword or by knife or by falling off a cliff or being a have broken back. But like how how in inside do? I want to have my final moments, and then their training and preparation led them to be prepared for that moment that moment of even uncertainty. And so it sounds like in many ways, maybe not so dramatic, but certainly in purposeful way in maybe some haphazard risk taking, you know, alpha -xperience ways that you were prepared for the moment. So so if that's taking too long. To ask her a simple question, which is what were some of those key experiences in people and stories that helped shape Jew in your readiness. I grew. I grew up in a middle upper middle class home with too great parents. Although my father worked a lot my mom was home to raise us in. I when my my brother and sister were born, I'm the eldest, I took on a very rebellious nature because it got me attention, and that became kind of the premise of my game, right or mind. Mice revival. Skill was done workaholic. Yes. Yeah. Alcoholic two. Yes. Okay. So both. Yup. And mom had more codependent nature took family. Right. So you didn't know what the truth was and say, exactly, yeah. Okay. And I grew up in Orange County in in the eighties. So I grew up in social distortion punk rock skinhead, you know, Orange County in in northern Orange County. And it was a very it was it was very. I found safety in like the very negative aspects of all of that I guess or the angry aspects of that. So I I saw an outlet through those vehicles of like punk rock and surf punk was bigger punk skateboard. I grew up basically in I grew up in a place where we had a friend of mine's brother had the largest ramp in like, Orange County. I think at the time. So I saw all these professional skateboarders in this culture. That was evolving, you know, that influenced me ton to not be not follow the norm. You know? I mean, I I just I was bored at school. I think that that was one of the big molding points for me is is not enjoying the educational system for what it was at the time. And us, you know, my friends were a lot of people that didn't were in that group. But on the flip side of that. I was incredibly I was really good athlete, and I played water polo and X and swam for most of my childhood and youth, and I was, you know, heavy duty, you know, I was heavy duty into sports. And I mean, I was I went into high school in freshman year was on the varsity water polo team. We, you know, we we we were very good. And you know, I had all these other things. So I had this kind of bizarre lifer. Had one life over here, which was sports and the other life, which is kinda like underground world of, you know, this is these are the kids don't hang out with and that's pretty evident..

"Right. Right for. Sure. Okay. So let's how are you talking about it because I don't I don't wanna ask questions. No. I'm totally open about. I mean, I I it was you know, this was I mean, look it. It's a terrifying. Experience to wake up on the ground and be like, oh, I can't move my arms legs and not freak out. I mean, initially, I I'm guessing there is an initial freak out. But I remember quite vividly because it was very difficult for me to breathe because I landed on the ground on my back from high up. You know, you do that. Like specially he's like a kid like you can't breathe. You're like, right. Will I didn't have any feeling. So I literally couldn't breathe right? So I was just like oh my gosh. Breathe. So I needed to initiate, my breathing myself and with the amount of work that I've done around reading in respiration. You know, it's like, okay, I understand what I need to do. If I start speeding up the breathing. I'm probably gonna use more of a physiological response. Like, you know, freaking out versus slow deep control breeding. And then let's says the situation which I was like, hey, get Aaron you know to my nephews, which was my wife. You know, just get Aaron and they were like what's wrong. What's wrong? And I'm like they had no idea. I thought I did like backflip off this thing like on purpose. Which is weird. But well. It kinda makes sense. Like you. Are you have like the superhero aura about you? You know, like you've got that way. Where you've done a deep dive into. The inner dimensions. Right. I'm not talking about the psychology. But I'm talking about the impact that breathing has on physiology and psychology and right? And so, but you've also got this risk taking, you know, exploratory frontier. Driving thin heard type of way about yourself. And so I could see your nephew's going. Oh, I'll go Brian. Did a double backflip, you know. Oh, we must have slipped. Oh, he'll get up. You know, like I. Okay. So I can get their experience, but I want. Okay, you understand the breathing. Mechanisms more than ninety nine point nine percent of the world's. You're a world leader world thinker about the impact that breathing has on physiology and psychology, and I'll performance human performance in whether that's living performance, and or some sort of sport or musical or performance..

"Two, you know, like how they walk because I needed to get this because I have stem covered by Stanford insurance because my wife works at Stanford. So I wanted to get down to Stanford thousand Santa Rosa, and I wanted to interview some surgeons there, but it was fairly evident that I needed pretty fast surgery to free up space in mind in my for my spinal cord or just a walking time bomb, and so I you know, I it took me I would say two weeks to kinda get pretty. Normal walking gait back, you know. And then I had surgery about I think it was like three weeks after the initial injury. And then I had another six weeks until like I got the neck brace off. And you know, I still have some slight numbness in my legs and feet, but nothing major, and that's just the nature of spinal cord injuries is your nervous system when it's injured can take a significant amount of time to heal. And what was the actual injury? Like, what did you need surgery for I needed to I shows to as many opinions here? But based on about I'd say a ten or so interviews I needed to have an N tier dissect Amee of my seat three four disc. So the disk that sits between c three and four hundred three four to be fused anterior front. So they went in they went into your throat area. Yep. Then they removed my disc from C three or four they got that out kind of and then they put in a prosthetic with some cadaver bones there. And then they basically tapped on a a little, you know bolts or our spacer upfront to hold that together. So that it would few. So that it holds in fusion and. You know, that was the surgery, which I, you know, the the actual spinal the actual plan surgery was perfectly fine. But the the actual throat being moved over to the side and having a breathing tube stuck down ice still like to this day. I have some some residual stuff from like my throat. It's almost like a a mild sore throat or inflamed throat to some degree. Okay. So it's three levels or was three four just three four one level when one level one. Yep. Okay. And that was that's considered. Assuming micro dissecting. Yes. Okay. Are so. I love the complications that you talk about the throat because like the only way I can relate which is not even close to it is like having my wisdom teeth removed, and you know, like the damn throat like it's that was that was way worse than any pain that was happening in the back of my mind my jaw. So are that too yet? So I don't know if it's the way they rip it out or what happens. But all I mean, cartilage doesn't like to be moved numb as my friend. Jill Miller likes to say, you know, she's like cartilage does not like to be moved in. The fact they move your throat like that the reason they go interiors because they just don't have to cut through a bunch of Moscow a bunch of muscle right muscle them on. Yeah. You know, because they go through the back, then they got to cut through a bunch of stuff, which means you are Jeff minutely mobile for quite some time, and it just prolongs the recovery period and some people react, or you know, have. I I assume stiffer throats than others. But you know, what I I'm not I shouldn't be Harvard like going on about this because I mean in the, you know, the totality of everything that was nothing yet..

What was the date on that? I can't remember. But I'm I know the gate on the accident. Which was made twenty six.

I was I was playing on a jungle gym was playing tag with my three nephews who are like seven ten twelve and they like on a park in a jungle gym at work at a kid school on jungle gym, and I was running from my oldest nephew. Who was it? And I was running up a ladder that had a gap ended up top with a bar above it to where a kid under the age of ten fits perfectly fine. But an adult six one does not and I didn't see it. And I was trying to get to an upper deck, and I creamed the bar at the top of my head so I- compressed. At which instantly not me out and create a contusion on my spinal cord, see three four. So I knocked out at about seven feet up drop to the ground landed on ground. I woke up, and I could not move. And so I had a fairly significant injury. What I thought was potentially broken neck at first. But turned out to be a contusion in. So about twenty minutes. Fifteen twenty minutes later. So I started to get some very sharp pains in my hands pins and needles nerve jenex ner genyk pains in about forty hours. I got my legs back the same way. And then I learned to walk again.

"We have a incredible resources page set up for breathing and all the stuff. I'm kind of getting into a spat. Even some of the visual stuff is in there. There's a lot. There's a breathing calculator on there. There's a breath assessment. If you wanna go through that, we've actually got a breathing calculator app. We've got an app that has breathing calculator on it. You do need to be a member of power, speed, endurance to get that. But. You could basically that whole process will set you up on breathing protocols and things like we've done with Stanford. That will allow you to kind of get started with just a little bit more breathing, just a little bit more. I love it and I can change everything.

"The. You're listening to impact berry impact the impact their impact packed baby. Everybody welcome to the fourteen forty inaugural event. This is the San Jose invitational and today we are doing our very first podcast and today's guest is none other than Brian MacKenzie. He's an expert in human performance and movement. He's the best selling author, former skater punk rock kid and all around bad ass who's ransom seriously, crazy, endurance races and swam with great white sharks. And if that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about him. I do not know what will. And so that is where I wanna start man. Like why the hell did you go swimming? Great, white sharks, understand fear. That's interesting. On an extreme level, obviously. And are you talking about like a physiological level, every so physiological for the standpoint of of giving actually getting out of a cage with a great white shark. You're really looking at the psychology. And the physiology of it like you're not thinking about mechanics, but the whole play on what we do. And what I do is they're all all three of these things are related, whether we're talking about a mechanical so position wise way, we sitting way we move or we're talking about a physiological response, your chemistry. So what's happened chemically with you and then psychological your your state. So what's going on in your brain? So I know that when you were doing it one time you were with a couple of guys that outwardly said, you couldn't tell they were freaking out, but all of a sudden the shark started acting really Radic. Yeah, it's pick that up. I'm glad you picked. Hey, you you've been doing some home? I that was diving with just like Galapagos sharks and stuff off the coast of Hawaii, which sharks sharks. So you do need to be careful, but sharks detect energy, and they detected very quickly, but we're not. We're not. We're not that much different as a species like you go home, you. See your wife. You see your kids, you see anybody you pick up on a mood instantly, right? You understand these things, but we kind of forget about this stuff a lot and we get an amored with it. But you know, when we were with the sharks on that particular dive, a couple of my buddies started kind of freaking out. And instantly we knew that because the behavior of the sharks became a Radic and it got Radic really quickly. And then the guy who was kind of leading the whole thing was, hey, hey, let's chill out, or let's get out. Yeah, hearing that story. So part of the reason I'm so interested in this is I've been invited to speak at a free diving camp. Yes, and I know what it is, but I've never done it. Nothing even remotely close to it and my greatest fear in the world. I'm not kidding hyperbole. Like, have you seen the movie open water. No, but no of loosely based on a true story about these two divers, they go on a boating trip as a whole bunch of people, and through a series of unfortunate events, they miscount on the return to the boat and they don't realize that these two people are still left stranded out in the water and the whole movie is basically about them slowly getting picked off by sharks and literally, if you were to reach into my soul and pull out the thing that I am most afraid of in the world, it is that so, but I have a rule in my life. I always move towards what scares me. I told the people in my company that I would always do anything with my code of ethics to build the company. And so since this doesn't violate my code of ethics when I was invited since it's a paying gig, I said, yes, we'll do it. And now I'm really staring down the barrel of jumping into the open water and just holding my breath for apparently substantial amount of time. And the first thing that that sort of thinking about was sharks and shark attack. So how like just purely selfishly, how in that kind of environment where I know that psychologically I'm going to be. Dealing with massive amounts of idee. What are the tools and techniques that I can use to really calm that down the fastest is your vision visually, if you, if you can see your vision is the fastest thing you can get to change..
