visited and started studying the geography and talk to mark a lot it gets a little colder up there but John have pretty summer summers maybe not as human as down in the east of North Carolina but yeah I'll get some warm warm water off the off the ocean right yeah we we have we're at the top end of the same does of the runs through through Phoenix so we've got we've got a rattle snake here in the summertime so there are still coming out of the denture right now and it's it's color or is kind of the napa valley of of Canada so most of Canada's wine and you know recreation is done in the area where I am so I'm in a small town with the lake on each and surrounded by mountains and you know its it's four season paradise so you know everything from lots international rock climbing to voting to running our you know Ironman Canada does the trials long here it's it's a beautiful spot and you know we run our we run our business from a small community but we work all over western and northern Canada so he'll actually in a time like what's going on now with the pandemic you know it's it's even more important that people see it can kind of work from anywhere sometimes so you know us being positioned in a in a really neat place to live and yet working everywhere is is is a strategic advantage for us so it's it's pretty cool set the so you're born and raised in in Penticton right and I say that correctly thanks yeah you betcha yep and and your second generation in what was originally an engineering firm am I right about that yeah yeah you bet it was it was started by my father in ninety five is an engineering services business but it did some construction and I'd say probably two thousand and six we we really profit the business model so we've basically spun off the majority of the engineering and and went full steam into contracting so and and very you know travel quite diverse we specialize in and a lot of remote northern work mostly water and power infrastructure and the only people who become quite good at it go getting in the places that they're very very remote and hard to get to I'll brag on you all the time Martin you you're so diligent and you're so inquisitive I mean your phone your ability to focus is really impressive for if from my from my stance but but she you realize just because this is what you do yes there there might be a better way there might be more opportunity let's find an opportunity as Buffett says with a moat that let's try to build our mode let's let's try to hire the experts ang buhay ng you went up above what parallel I mean you are you safe from Penticton us like sometimes five or six airplane flights correct yeah you're bad yeah I mean it's were talking as much as you know fifteen hundred to two thousand miles from miles from where we were from from my offices as how far we go north so absolutely would be to be similar to going from Phil from Seattle down much to the bottom of Mexico if you think in the other way going north so it's it's a long way absolutely yeah it's it's gonna be five flights going up market I'm I'm sort of a weather nerd and I've got to imagine that you guys are used to working in just an unbelievably difficult climate Sacchi talk a little about that yeah for sure for sure I mean so far I mean in terms of parallels a lot of what we do is above the sixtieth parallel so that's the that's kind of the line that's drawn at the bottom of the logic I guess you know that that runs across the E. are what we call our territories which are the the northern three states so Yukon northwest territories and Nunavut soul up there I mean it's it's it's cold right so you guys you probably got two months of actual summer and when will cut a real summer isn't cool I mean you still can get freezing temperatures anytime of the year and then in the very northern work that we do which is actually quite a bit further from there Bob actually in the Arctic Circle you've got some time six weeks for the actual license comes off the ocean so anything from a logistics perspective we've got a move that quick minta supplies sometimes like so for building about a mile to a power plant we got a bill that down south get on the truck take it as far as we can get on a barge on a river and then take that bars all the way up say to the north of the Arctic Ocean put on another barge and then time it right so that we can get through the sea ice landed on the beach drag everything up the beach and then get the barge out of there before the the ocean freezes back yeah so I mean it is wild and so disabled the the challenges of trying to time things and only having one shot it's it's yeah you gotta build things two or three times you know in your head you've got to plan things absolutely perfect and you've got to have continual contingencies for extra pieces extra parts and make sure that everybody dialed and such with wild and wild you can't hence the name wild stone group that that's yeah the store owner just as it is named after stone sheet which you know is the stone she live in Rick rugged terrain and and basically can go anywhere seven come watch an episode of discovery channel's you reading that it would end in about a minute we got to go to break but one thing did you rename the business at some point after it started or did your father name out of the gate no no it was it was always a while so it was it was engineering what's on engineering and then it's gonna while stone construction and engineering and now will better known as well as some construction group but the the walls don't stay true yeah no I I think it's really cool when we get back I got to hear more about I want to I want you I want you to explain the Patrick and our audience has had you vertical businesses as kind of unreal it is really cool and I I just love your forever when you hang tight with us and do do another segment on our show yeah you bet Mr we got mark Melisende with

"I've basically set things up in a way right now where I'm able to support the athletes and the customers that use the products by living life that they are trying to achieve as well to use of the product so yes I'm competitor. Oh yes I'm an athlete. You know I I'm out there. I'm on the same courses they are. I certainly try my best when I can and incorporate that into my business as well as any good lessons that you've learned through sports and athleticism that have informed you on how to grow your business or maybe vice versa. Always I mean I can't referred anything specific frankly I know that when I first started doing Long course and I was in two thousand. I had a bike crash major bike crash and it was in April or March and I had already signed up for the Arm in California at the time that was in May and unfortunately. So you know I wasn't able to race at the time they were able to move my entry over to Ironman Canada which was in August. And so you know just the perseverance and the idea of recovery and getting back on seats and training a mean that relates to athletics just as it does to business. Frankly I mean there's always stumbling blocks we've all had our own accidentally. They all had issues failures challenges. And so I think there's a big parallel. Frankly they between athletics and business in many ways I mean people have written about this. It's not I haven't. I'm not the one who discovered it or popularizing. In any way I think one feeds off the other and I think there's a lot of very successful business people who are very competitive athletes. That's why I started the podcast. Oh cast we have been talking a lot about athletes hydration and electrolytes for endurance sports. But I know salt stake is not just for athletes cleats. Tell me more about this. We were talking A. We've been talking about athletes and I just wanted to mention that we don't only work with athletes and it's kind of an interesting pissing aspect that has evolved over the last couple years. I just thought you might be interested in hearing about this. There's a lot of outdoor workers that are affected by you know loss electrolytes lights and that have benefited from proper electrolyte replacement. But there's also another subset of people which has come on a raid are over the last few years and we've become really working. I'm heavily with them. Is patients that have conditions called CYSTIC fibrosis is one. EDS is another as eller stem syndrome. Drum and billy The big one is pots which is a paw stroll worth of Static Cardiac Syndrome and basically people can't get up with passing out. The change of position between wind down and standing up literally causes such a drop in blood pressure that they pass us out and a lot of patients have found that increasing their salt intake as being really beneficial because it helps increase their plasma volume mm-hmm so encourages the body to retain more water and by doing that. It reduces the chance to dig it pass out or they get dizzy and so we created by tasks him which which is another salt stick product for that those patients and its high sodium high potassium product. And it's just really interesting because in working with these patients Winston working with a group called this audio Mia International And we're now a very Lee donate a lot of money to decide and on international national actually to help with patient advocacy and patient support and research. And we're it's just a proud outreach. That were keen on and there are subset of people in the world who have too much salt and should not take additional salt. There are also some people who can't have salt At all you know as we always advise check with your physician if you're in a condition where there could be some question on that for a lot of other people. There's no effect at all all they can basically eat as much salt as they want. And you know there still are some potential longer term consequences but if they're losing significant amounts of salt in sweat for example by training. Ten twenty hours a week. Then they need some replenishment now could be two regular diet if they have a high salt diet but you know. A lot of people are actually deficient in salt. It's not that common. Then be estimated. It is somewhere between twenty to thirty percent of people actually chronically deficient insults. Lot of older people. Frankly who don't hydrate very well with hydrate better if they had a little more salt intake and especially in hot conditions. You hear about elderly people who are rescued from their homes in the middle of summer east coast or somewhere. There's a heatwave and a lot of them are dehydrated and frankly setting them up with a proper fluid intake including electrolytes is really important so it's not just athletes In it's not just you know a subset of smaller subset that actually could affect a larger population. How are you getting the word? Weird out about all of these projects and initiatives so we obviously as in any company would have limited bandwidth. And we've chosen at this point to focus Assan two major groups of athletes obviously and then supporting conditions related to automatic conditions which our basic economic conditions basically affect the body's ability to control it functions. And so once again pots for example where the body cannot control the Ortho static pressure Changing based on changing position. That's an automatic condition. And so we've been working with physicians and hospitals who specialize in those conditions and our work with Dishonored oh amihai international As well now we've also started working with support groups for cystic fibrosis. EDS and some other conditions where salt steak or electrolyte products seemed to have some benefit. So those are our best approaches right now. Obviously the condition that I mentioned mentioned where you have you know saying oh elderly person during a heat wave in the summer we're not able to reach them directly at this point we're counting on you know general public awareness of the importance of hydration. You know our products are available on Amazon and our our website stick dot com readily. And so we're also counting on physicians and friends and family to to be able to guide people that may benefit from these kind of products. Well I think what you're doing is amazing. I.

Thank you so much for being here with me today. I'm happy to be here. You have a really long history with iron man twenty years to be exact. How have you seen the culture race venues and operations shift and evolve over the years from the original family run business to now a global operation? Yeah I mean I've got twenty years in the business but it's interesting it's really been like effectively working for you. Know I tell people four or five different companies you know. The businesses evolved all the way back. If you go back to the very beginning I mean think about what you know. We're now the IRONMAN group which has all these unique and interesting off shoots with other businesses businesses and other other types of events but it really all started with that single event Conan in nineteen seventy eight with fifteen guys. So I'm one one of a handful of people who in many ways grew up in the business. I was twenty four twenty four years old when I started working for North America. Sports in nineteen ninety. Nine I is everyone probably or maybe isn't aware of the airmen. Businesses evolved a lot and dramatically over the years starting as a licensed business with P. Partners. All over the World Grand Prix. Who is my original boss? Was the license effectively. The entire license holder for all of North America at that time consisted of one event ironman Canada in Brenton which were returning to this year. As I'm sure many our listeners are aware his mandate from the president at the time. WHO's a member of our hall of fame? Lew Friedland was since he he had the exclusive rights the business that prior president prior to that didn't WANNA expand not North America. He thought it would impact. Why the was which is crazy to think about right now when you look at the landscape but that was the mindset then like we can't have too many races because Oh my God it will impact sort of the crown jewel because even then why was was is the epitome of the sport? Lou came from a completely different mindset. He's like we need to get this thing out there because the way we're going to grow the brand and where we're going to really make this. We gotTA touch all corners corners globe so he basically went and sat with Graham and said you need to expand in the United States because we got I mean the biggest market we have in the entire world and we have no vets. So did you go. From one event to two events or one event to twenty events quickly I sort of joined this process placid. Because that's where I was personally at the time I was was actually sports editor per series small newspapers there at a young age. And that's how I got to know Graham and the team because they brought iron until like plus so it was like six weeks before the race race. I actually was like you know I forgot what this thing is. You know and through a Weird Quirky series of events which effectively was the race director not Showing up for two meetings with me and Graham coming and grabbing me out of an office. I was sitting in waiting for this other guy and then me sitting with him for two hours at sort of led to him and I talking about everything under the sun and him offer me a job the day after the original placid so so will you NPR. Then because I knew you kind of started your career in pr and then you moved into operations. Yeah so they hired me. I was originally hired and I. It's funny you know I. I actually was digging through. Awesome some files at my house. I have my original little offer contract from nineteen ninety nine. I think I can't remember exactly what the title was it was. I think it was communications manager right. You know when you're twenty four you know you're you're like all excited when you you get those things but it was really an interesting thing but yeah I started on that side but for those in the industry you know this was a six person company right so you may have a title that says your acts or wires e but you're doing a lot so but I certainly started in that side organizing all that very much like our team does here but on a global basis further North American sports team in quickly evolved and moved it into other parts of the business because.

"Dollars the mobile shop so the sprinter and the build out with all the inventories approximately a hundred and fifty. And you can you can finance that So for fifty five thousand a you. You have the keys in rolling around compared to opening a brick and mortar store significantly less and we tried to keep the franchise fee low and said we work on the financing and help support with that so that we could get people in the business so we've got mechanics working in a shop that wanted to own their own and doing a bike shop just was out of the reach financially financially So we've got mechanics. We've got people that were in the industry and left because he kinda hit that glass ceiling very quickly because working in a bike shop you can only earn so much money. And then we've got what we call investors so those are people that are in other businesses. They liked the model. They like what we're doing but they don't want to manage a day to day you know. They're involved in invest in the higher manager in a regional manager manager in the higher The mechanics so we don't have that. I'm aware of anybody that that was actually looking to buy a franchise right if that makes any sense cool model. Yeah so the people we have the one connections always that they're passionate about cycling. Yeah weather's mountain road traffic. But they get the model right away so they sought somewhere. They were customer somebody they know used it and instantly like you just sit earlier. They're like wow that makes sense makes sense that you'll come to my home. So we've got a lot of great franchise partners and as I think. The fee is low enough for a a lot of them that it's we try to keep that opportunity as low as possible. Obviously there's some costs involved in doing it but we've got. We've got great stories of franchise partners that scrape together everything they had and they've been very successful with it so I mean it's a really I mean it's a really fun concept I think. Yeah it's it's a at the end of the didn't already have companies would probably be considered US Open. We'd sell a few franchises by the time we were thought. Hey maybe you never know where we work but it. Yeah it's I I think there's a there's definitely a huge piece of passion in this business because you're around bikes you're out events you're dealing with people with their bikes. There's just there's a passion to it so I think when you talk to the mechanics that are in the vans They get to connect with the customer. And I think that's something that's missed in most retail environments where it's one on one time It's you can ask ask questions. You're not intimidated. And it's just there's a powerful connection that that happens so I think people that have bought franchises. See that and the network building. That happens incredible. I mean the old at cycling's a new Gulf like every every community were in the connections happen because of bikes is is amazing. And even personally for me for me to I mean just in your city like when I go out and ride up over the GW view in nine. W If I'M NOT TRAINING FOR RE seriously I probably like hang out at the bike shop for thirty minutes and like stared. Everyone's bikes and talk about bikes. And there's there's a whole culture it's running but he's kind of next level in terms of like the community around cycling. I was as I said I was not really in that community before. For what were you doing before like I was doing some I was doing two thousand nine hundred Ironman Canada but more of a runner dents marathons and things like that and when you train for an iron man as you know my experience was I I did a lot of it on my own back then. I didn't have a team or club. So it was very solo type efforts and and when we started this business and I started writing with more people I really started to see the power of the community and the social aspect of it where you know in running most of the time. I'm you're on your own. Maybe you find a partner that runs at the same pace and you can run together but you can go on group Rides with twenty thirty forty people and as you rotate through. You could end up talking adding to most of them. My friends are like doing business on their by sure. Yeah so so the triathlon part of it where I started the last few Tra funds. I've got some training buddies as you can see you build a bit of a community but I was really pleasantly surprised with cycling. Were to your point you roll up and meet at a coffee shop and everybody's looking at everybody's bikes in their shoes. News and the new gear. And and it's you know yeah and you go for good long ride and then you go have a beer after a coffee after and you talk about the ride and it's very very social it is. It is a new golf. If it's an opportunity we can do business. You can network and when everybody's on a bike it's just equal. Yeah it's true there any good lessons that you've learned from sports now since since you've started your company and that you're building this brand that you take from your training that you've brought over to business or vice versa. Yeah for sure I think you know. I think first and foremost what you realize in business and training is there's good days and bad days and the best athletes that I've been around pro athletes and people that have been very very successful at the same as business. People is they really. Try to keep the highs and lows in check. Because you know it's a roller coaster and I find in business. It's the same MS training. You know some days you go out and just feel like a million dollars and you feel incredible and there's other days you've got no energy in your flat and you can't you know if it's a negative experience experience you can't let that ruin your next couple of weeks and if it's a positive experience you also have to be realistic about what's coming so I think sports is like businesses very humbling. Like even the best asked. Don't win all the time and off days and marathon. Actually I was the one of the most amazing experiences but I've never gone to a race in the ten years I've been doing triathlon and gotten sick with a cough so I mean that was like such a huge lesson for me. I was like pissed historic for thirteen. Miles off is okay. Sometimes miles of lake. Kumai GONNA kill because I'm sick and I think it's that's another great lesson is yeah there's some things outside of your control and that was the lesson and timing so I think sports are are training endurance training anyways like business. It's it's a lot in the preparation. It's daily it's consistency right. You can't win in one day. You can't lose in one day it's a it's a build and you need to be patient and That's hard at times for sure but I think those are good lessons and then playing soccer growing up or you know the team sport aspect is is very similar when you get into a business environment is everybody's got different strengths weaknesses. Treat everybody the same. But you're trying to figure out what that goal is and get everybody going in the same direction. So that's that's very you know. I think that it has a lot to do with sports as well as you realize. When you're in a team environment is you have to rely on other people and similar to building a business? Nobody can do it on their own right so you have agree team. Yeah and then you mentioned before we started talking your daughters in Australia so is she also super athletic director crying now. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. Yes she took A. She took a year off so she finished high school and she'd been tossed really before orange. got a good friend down there. She she doesn't like being cold out. She'd saw that we have that comment. uh-huh yeah so Vancouver is you know. It's it's it's fairly mild where we live but without the iron candidate twice. Yes because I know there's also one in whistler well so what happened was penticton which was Iran. Canada was they lost it for about four years kind of went to whistler and now it's returning okay the next year it's back in Pentacle so Yeah she So she good for her she's She doesn't know what she wants to do at school and she wants to go travel for year and it was hard to the airport. I'm still struggling but both my kids played very competitive soccer. So she's yes. She's a really really good athlete and she's taking some time off now. She had scholarship offers and discussions with schools in Canada but most places in Canada pretty cold so I think she may end up in Australia. Also an athlete torment together in in two thousand and nine and she did it off about three months training so she's probably while she has a better athlete than I am for sure. And Yeah we ride together and and run together occasionally as well. I think she's going to do an Olympic distance. Next summer. He'll be back at it. We had a busy year so I did in December I did did palm springs. Seventy point three than it had oceanside than I did The seventy point three in Saint George Utah North Championship. We did a couple. Olympic distances is up in in the Okinawan. And then niece sauce. An eye of someone else. WHO's on the podcast was going to niece? He said the bike was really. He's a coach here in New York work and he said that the bike was obviously super technical. Did you love that or yes. So we're we're from In Vancouver we climb a lot. Yeah so we love. So the hills. The hills weren't the problem. A couple of things in my age group was the last to go of the day. Okay so you so we you know we were two hours behind the first wave so by the time we got on the courses says crews quite busy climbing was okay but the descending it was technical through small French towns and there's a lot of people on the roads so that the descending sending part was it was tough because they're narrow roads and you'd have three or four people wide so that was a little bit Harry and I didn't ride a bike. I wrote a road a narrow aerobic but I enjoyed the climbing part. It was a tough tough. That was the hardest. By course I've ever done triathlon. Yeah as most traffic onto fairly straight and there may be hills is but they're not I mean I think basically the first forty five K.. We're up in the second half was back down the other side of the mountain. That's so that sounds so exciting for me like I love Technical Viking. I've never actually experienced such technical biking because I live in New York and we get nine W. but I've done a few races but nothing I'm crazy. Sounds like really like it was. It was epic it was I mean just rolling through these small French towns and looking down on the mountain note towards the the ocean mhm it was really cool. But they're you know we met quite a few people. I know when we rewrote the course and there was a bunch of people from Texas there and they were just die all look on their face like oh boy he's GonNa do. You're GONNA do ironman. Canada no no no. I'm I don't want to retire but I took what five years off I know. Sorry to two thousand twelve to twenty nine thousand nine hundred seven years off I don't like to swim. I really really you like swimming like Lucy Charles likes to swim. I would too if I was as good as her..

"Josh four zero six and leave your comment there and Of course also if you have Achilles tendon apathy or anything else that we talk about on. Today's show you can also also as your questions there as well so I suppose we should probably after after Turkey. Gobbling brining and crying. We should probably actually jump into today's show when you think Jay. I think that's a beautiful segue. Let's go so Jay. We have been getting a ton a ton of questions about recovery about injuries about supplements and hacks to fix things better. I think people people are just breaking themselves right and left. What do you think I think you're right when I kind of sift through the questions that are are being sent in? I'd say maybe seventy five eighty percent of them are about sports related injury or recovery. So I don't know what everybody's doing but Jeez Stop Edit. Yeah seriously get your head screwed on straight people start doing yoga and your Red Sauna. Just don't turn up the temp to hire wind up on the Thanksgiving dinner table so so anyways in that being said I thought I would highlight a few recent news flashes because I spend a lot of time looking at You know pubmed and and some of these journals that come across my desk and I tweet out the more interesting anecdotes over at twitter dot com slash Ben Greenfield folks want to check that out but a few that. We're really interesting I was actually about Kelly's tenant issues. A lot of people do not just Achilles tendon issues but ten issues in general and this was in the the strength conditioning journal linked to bin Greenfield fitness dot com slash four zero six but this was the October two thousand nineteen Strength Conditioning Journal and it was a really really really good article that went into a lot of the different ways that you could manage tendon injuries and there were few in there that I haven't talked about much before on the show. Oh and that the listeners might not be that familiar with but if you struggle with tenant issues these might be a few things to look into for example one was is The use of what are called Glycerin. Try Nitrate Patches. So these these are actually well studied for their use in tended apathy. And what they actually do you. Is there almost like an off label use for nitric oxide. So you traditionally use these treat like Angina but what they do is when you slap them over an area. The body that that needed healing they stimulate what's called fiberglass production and they also increase the ability of that tended to be able to last to failure failure and so they're called glycerin that's G. L. Y. C. E. R. Y. L. Try Nitrate Glycerin try nitrate patches and just is basically a form of of Trans Dermal medicine delivery but apparently in the case of tendon injuries. There's there's some pretty good research behind these patches. You run across all J. now is going to ask ask you. Do you have to be prescribed these or this is something that you can just kind of find in the interwebs. I think these are prescription. Pretty sure I admittedly and maybe you could to do this. While I'm while I'm talking to you know go see glycerin. Nitrate Patches on Amazon I don't know why don't you do a little look for that. And and I'll I'll mention a few of the the other really interesting things in this article. Another one was something that I've spoken with doctor. Matthew Cook about but this is the first time I've seen it really explored much in the literature and it's called high volume image guided injection H V. I G I saw this is where rather than as most practitioners do kind of like putting their thumb. I'm on an area and saying hey. Does this hurt her here. and kind of like approximating wear the delivery of like ozone or prolotherapy or even say stem cells Our excess homes are going to go instead. You use ultrasound and imaging to actually guide the needle very very precisely into the area area where there is like like an fusion or volume or pain or inflammation and I've had this protocol done myself by Dr Cook at Bio Reset Medical Colin San Jose. Another guy here locally. I just found out about a Filipino. And Spokane who does it but if you can get physician does. These image guided injections on night and day difference between that and just having a physician Kinda SORTA approximate worthy needles supposed to go. So that's another one that that again. Not just for Achilles Tendon apathy thieves but knee issues elbow shoes even back issues etc can be really really efficacious but it has to be image guided image guided injection so that was another it came up in this study by the way anything come up on Trina trae patches. So I didn't see anything. You type it into Amazon. And all you're GONNA get as a bunch of him royd creams teams and a bunch of him Royd oils and then is just looking like it probably is prescription then would just be Kinda my second guess I would hazard. Has it a guess. Because I've actually used this and my apologies to the kids in the mini vans right now for Boehner's nitroglycerine cream nitroglycerine claim if you smear that on your scrotum grodin before sex or you give a little to your lady for a little blood flow to her to her Wa who before get it on It's amazing for blood flow. Oh and of course the the operation principle of it and also the reason why it should never be combined with Sildenafil or Viagra or anything like that because your blood pressure will just dropped blom. It causes this nitric oxide release so perhaps you could use in the absence of one of these patches just basic good old nitro-glycerine cream which everybody has a hanging around the garage dynamite experiments. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking too is that I I guess. I didn't equate GLITZ. Rawal try nitrate with Nitroglycerine in but these are the same thing. I believe chemically they should be nearly identical but I believe the glycerin nitrate patches are just like delivery of if something very similar to nitroglycerin cream in a localized directed patch based format at. But I'm I'm not a doctor so don't don't misconstrue this medical medical advice so anyways there you have it maybe you just grab some nitroglycerine cream that way. You've got a killing two birds with one stone you're fixing your tendon and getting better Boehner's owners so relieving heart failure that's right and relieving Angina so the the article goes on to a few of the things but one that I think is as well known amongst physical therapist but not as well known amongst the general pop is the use of e centric loading for any type of tendon apathy. Meaning anytime in your lowering await whether it's body weight or an actual weight over a long period of time you're taking that muscle through its lengthening phase and that is actually very good. At essentially causing these tiny micro tears that causes a bigger release of your body's own growth factors and stem cells to head over over to that area. It's also really good at eliminating the formation of immobility due to the build of scar tissue in the area and so oh This this could be something that can be done for like slow loading squats for a knee issue like very slow. Drop into a light squat very slow. Drop into like he'll raise or cafes for an Achilles issue but this idea of e centric loading. It's often used in physical therapy settings but it's also pretty easy to do yourself yourself this idea of e centric loading and you know there are even now some fancy machines like Air Exit is one company of interviewed them. Before on the podcast that that actually create exercise devices that just push you through very high load e centric activity which surprisingly is also pretty good for maintaining chaining strength in the absence of creating injuries Art Vani for example. Is He's a big proponent of high load e center training as a strength building strategy but also as an injury a prevention strategy turns out it can also be used as an injury healing strategy so they added interesting. I've seen individuals who are working out on the ARCS training. Like you've mentioned before and it looks like they are just like str- on these struggle bus I think Doug McGovern has a youtube video where he is on that trainer and it looks intense. Used One of those before. Yeah it's basically single set to failure training single failure training and this is just the use of machine to push you even harder than you'd be able to push yourself and they're pretty hefty I am or I have become a popular amongst z a list celebrities in the health influence or world for my annual four eight to Paleo F X in Austin towns fantastic health conference and they always have these machines there and they always dare me to just go to complete exhaustion on those things. I always do it always winds up on instagram me making a Poopie face while I'm exercising housing on these things and insider baseball story art. Davonte the guy just mentioned you know who has a robust history of doing centric exercise. He he actually. You did a set on one of these things and then stood up basically fainted and somebody had to catch him. So they're they're pretty Pretty pretty intense but under under supervision by professional national They they can actually be really fictitious. I kinda SORTA want one for my home but I haven't been able to convince them to give me a slam deal on one yet. And so she's saying just saying sound like podcast. That means you can give me free stuff. I think that's how it works. I think that works. Yeah okay so anyway we. We should move along an this one more related to diet. I figured I choose one thing related to training. What the late at Diet? Wanting more laid supplementation but a recent study called low low carbohydrate training increases protein requirements of endurance athletes low carbohydrate training increases protein requirements of Durance athletes. This was recently the last issue of medicine and science in sports and exercise and what they looked at was the the the protein intake and also protein synthesis post exercise that occurs in endurance athletes who are following a ketogenic or relatively low carb Diet I think these people were somewhere in the range of about twenty percent or so for their carbohydrate intake and it turns out that and I mentioned this when we talked about how to build muscle muscle Ketogenic Diet how that also requires higher protein requirements than you'd see amongst the average person will it turns out that based on this study the rate of whole-body whole-body protein synthesis required a far greater amount of blood levels of amino acids particularly during the exercise session in athletes. who had low carbohydrate availability low glycogen availability? meaning that if you want the benefits of. Let's let's say either. You're you're doing this for for weight loss. So you're limiting carbohydrates or perhaps you have some insulin sensitivity. Your Blood Glucose issues that you're trying to adjust or perhaps perhaps you just trying to take advantage of some of the endurance-boosting benefits of Ketosis. Well one of the last things you should do is neglect your protein requirements. It's particularly during exercise if you're training in a state of low carbohydrate availability and this is something actually I start off one of the the chapters of of my new book. Boundless about this discussion. I had with Dr Peter Attiyah This was like Oh gosh. This was back in two thousand. Thirteen Pete Pete Nice to bounce stuff off each other. Regarding endurance. Exercise and He filled me in on utilization or or the use of amino acids for that. He was using for a lot of his long fasted bike rides because this was back when he was doing like twenty four hour. Facet bike rides at a pretty decent clip and so he recommended to me for Ironman in training to us at the time when I was a the branch chain amino acids made by biosteel and I use those for Ironman Canada pretty effectively but I still balked about nine hours into the race or so and then I made one switch. I switched them out. I switched out from branch chain amino acids to essential. you'll need acids and that. That's pretty much the only reason right. Now that we sell essential amino acids kion is because I discovered them For for being useful for Kito Sisson ironman training training and then realized that a ton of other benefits out not time to get into now that we. I think we've talked about in the past but anyways so I started using the essential amino acids and I could literally just go for days. He's like ride my bike for days. Run for days no issues even in a state of almost zero carbohydrate availability and this latest study kind of backs that up your protein synthesis is your whole body protein synthesis or your body protein needs go up because of the greater amino acid requirement when you're exercising in a state state of low carbohydrate availability so one of the best hacks so to speak that you could use. If you're a low carb or KITO. Athlete would be exercise with high levels of blood hud amino acids particularly not flavored water. Which is what branch chain amino acids are but actual amino acids essential amino acids so interesting takeaway? I realized that also sounds like you know I. I fully aware that sounds like the Fox guarding the Hen House. I own a company that sells amino but at the same time like I I I wouldn't I wouldn't sell them and I would encourage their use specially for low carb athletes if they weren't so darn effective right now. I find them to be awesome. I don't do you a ton of endurance training so I'll do some functional fitness training..

"Some clinically male nurse mike nothing obvious right for a long time with your vegetarian diet and end your bones. Your organs are filling in the proteins. That should have been there that weren't and that's where the weight is from. My waist was the same my you know you could not tell the difference so then i did i did i'd done ironman canada many times that i went back and raised and i had my my my best time ever and so i wrote an article for triathlete magazine on on maybe you're your protein malnourished and you don't know it just like i was in. Here's what happened to me and after i wrote the article three thousand people wrote like where do we get this stuff. Oh well onto something yeah yeah so we we we started to to get the product and that products perfect amino and the this the search for the perfect perfect protein really revolves around this thing of yes if you can get good dietary proteins. This is what our natural foods are but in today's today's world that's very difficult and even with that people who try really hard most people because the digest our digestive systems systems are very stressed. They don't digest well. They don't absorb well <hes> that if you supplement with essential amino acids these are the eight essential essential amino acids <hes> and they have to be a certain balanced ratio to for this to occur about ninety nine percent of of what what you take in we'll get incorporated into your body as protein so it can be like almost completely assimilated one hundred percent yeah. That's right now. In the average human body there are fifty thousand different proteins tonight. It's all so you know you all the various cells in the body your immune system from your hair your detoxification system your muscles tendons ligaments bones all this stuff is made on a protein <hes> and the body has to be able to take doc outside proteins reduce them down to what they're made out of which is all amino acids and then reassemble the amino acids back into our own proteins uh-huh. Now people don't realize if you say have a stake. The muscle protein in that animal has fifty seven hundred and amino acids per fiber. Wow so amino acids are like an alphabet. There's twenty two of them okay. So if we you think of english we have twenty six letters in the alphabet okay and you can mix those letters a million different ways and get. I think there's something like four hundred thousand words in the english language something like that. Okay okay okay so some words have one letter some words. Have you know twenty six letters. Whenever and proteins are the same way you have an alphabet which is called camino acids amino in greek means nitrogen <hes> okay so these things have nitrogen. Yeah carbohydrates and fats don't have nitrogen so what you know there's twenty two of them and depending on how you arrange these twenty two you can make different proteins. The simplest protein in the body is thyroid hormone among one amino acid with three or four lines okay but muscle protein and has fifty seven hundred amino acids per chain yeah so <hes> these eight essential ones are really really important that you get those in and the problem with plant proteins and collagen and <hes> and way.

Of Cross it endurance for those outside the Cross Bit Universe will let Brian Explain what that means Brian Mackenzie welcome to the ready State podcast postulate star at thank you for having me. I'll just jump right in here. You were not one of the first fifty Crawford affiliates but you were part of a special group of people known as cross fit S._M._e.'s so can you tell us what Vanessa is <hes>. What what what it is you were doing for Crawford as an S._M._e.? In the early days yes Ma'am so I think we're like round two fifty or something as an affiliate but <hes> the S._M._e.. Program was my highway in to cross fit because I anyway it's Sesa S._M._e.. Is a subject matter expert and I got involved with cross fit for the reason of endurance training we I figured out a new paradigm in how train sports specific with regards to endurance training and part of that equation was running mechanics and my entrance into cross awesome it came because I actually emailed Greg. I was like I really love what you're doing and you're so focused on movement but everybody run like Shit and I might by the way we've we've done a few to heavy duty endurance events and I just finished a my second hundred mile and we use this program and we used it in conjunction with cross fit to actually do something it. He instantly like he responded. I think that day to me was like hey can you come to Santa Cruz and talk about this and that was kind of the kickoff of what I did and that was when level ones actually had guests that would show up on Sundays and they had like an hour to I believe to actually present and information and if the community liked it then you would get an invite to another one and if they continued to like it then Greg. I would invite you to put invite you to be an S._M._e.. I had a fighter guy at my level one. Do you remember what his name was. John how common yes I had John Holloman at my my level one so yes so you are I remember when I first became aware of you. You are so well known because you could take a traditional like let's say marathon running program where people normally would do this period is thing and at the end they would end up running like twenty three miles before the marathon or something and you're able to say no. You'd actually don't need to do that much. Volume you can do way less volume and be successful and probably really prevents him. Injuries and be more awesome you tells do we call that. The cats and dogs program exactly where people were like what what you can start at how are you. Hey just that you don't have to run a marathon to be able to run a marathon. You you can do a lot less than run a marathon and be awesome totally that that was pretty much what we did and I you know I mean really really really smart. People would be like no you can't but you know when we talk about about training for an an endurance event. The limiting factor and endurance events are not what people actually equate them to typically be <hes> and so..

That's that was a lot of guys know him. The Ski Guy who had this big Mohawk but chucked it too and he did some ads ads for gatorade mother place like that so he was a professional cyclist returned to triathlons and had a guy one time so we're living together doing the cosmic thing you go run ride swim all day along do all that kind of stuff and then you can eat pretty much whatever you want to and get away with it seemingly but the guy said chuck if you really WanNa win when you look at everything you're doing and ask is helping my effort or hurting my effort is that an and chuck's Chuck's perspective on that with the nightly it might be half a gallon of ice cream that he could do burn the calories he was but is that the best thing best thing to go in there and fuel him is it going to help or hurt and he started following that and really thinking through that wasn't too long after the he one ironman Canada was biggest win at that point and that always stuck with me and and you know why do we not look at our lives like that. You also mentioned something. I just WANNA stick in their Tom. You talked about something that made me think about as far as good habits another one that I've taken on is making sure at night I go to bed and I have a little ritual instead of just because it's so easy for me especially when my big family always some some group of kids or adults hanging out late eight and I've got to learn. I've had to learn to do what your dad didn't say. Hey guys. I don't know what you're doing but I'm heading to bed in about nine thirty s when I'm thinking about doing that but having a ritual instead of just going to bed boom hitting hitting the covers I've started reading a little bit but I realized and reading an I do like to read some fiction a lot of times onto brain dead really intake anything of value but I also read a good story but what is the story. I'm reading about because you can read fund science fiction. You can read some fun stuff but I thought man. It's it's not really putting me to bed with a good thought in my mind and so these days right now I'm reading. It's a faith based fiction series. It's just tremendous cannot remember the author but I love that I'm going to bed and it's it's kind during Biblical Times so I've almost got this great story that I'm eager to read what's happening next going on during these biblical times with the faith-based focus and then the wake up in the morning it's still in my brain a little bit and I'm going right into the old testament which is where I'm studying right now. In reading reading and Man that is that is so powerful but it just brought me back again to the power of what our minds are mulling on pondering at night when we go to bed and how that can just marinate in our heads all night long. It's pretty convicting as to what we are going to bed with our mindset upon so there's a better habit that I've instilled as well..

"This is really changing things in my body that I had no idea needed even needed to be changed, or that I was protein deficient. I don't acid deficient. I, I had no idea and there's another part of this kind of a little story that goes with it is. I had a patient in the clinic, who is an expert on sort of natural treatment of cancer. And one of the things that she would use with people is real strong mixtures of enzymes to theoretically, digest off the coat of at the cancer cells, protect themselves with, and it would sort of expose the cancer to its protective coat the immune system would see it, and that they could then get better with their cancer. And sometimes it was very effective. And we were talking about therapy, call their name for that. Well, it's, it's, it's pancreatic therapy, key Kelly William, Donald Kelley was a was a dentist orthodontist actually, and he got pancreatic cancer. And he decided to he worked out a way that he could cure himself and much of the much of the things that he used were actually figured out by a, a anatomist named beard. Who said that they were embryos excels within the tissue stem cells, when the tissues in the would get these get turned on, and that if you had an inadequate pancreas that was putting out not only digestive enzymes, these, these proteases in your blood, but they were supposed to be putting them in your bloodstream and these would circulate around, and they would protect you from cancer. And so. He's a Scottish guy, and this is like probably in the nineteen ten's nineteen twenties. So when Kelly got pancreatic cancer, he started using a mixture of real, high concentrations of very strong digestive enzymes. Ground up pancreases, but superconcentrated and he wrote some books on it. And he had thousands of cases actually where he was successful. But eventually the, the powers that be got to him. And he went off the deep end kinda got a little bit crazy, but this person that was my patients. She, she learned from him spent a couple years before he died learning how to do this, and she would do phone consoles with people and help them really helped them. And sometimes it was very effective. And so she was in the clinic one day, and she told me about it, and she said, you know, something you could do is take some of these enzymes you take twelve of them three times a day for three days. And if you get things kinda turning on in your body, that, that was a sign of brewing cancer, and that, then you should do a course of these enzymes to kinda clean up anything that needed to. Be cleaned up. So I sit on game on that. And so in the morning before I had breakfast, I took twelve of these enzymes in within about two hours. I thought I'd burned a hole in my stomach. It was just like like terrible. I went back your and I said, I don't think I have cancer, but I can't take these enzymes, and I never really understood why I had been mostly a vegetarian for the thirty years before that. And I never thought I was deficient in anything, so fast forward, my maximum heart rate, improved. My lean body mass actually went up without a perceivable change in how I looked. But we're those different was supposed to be part of the pancreatic, enzyme therapy, or is this, your some totally different? The amino totally different. I will. So, so what dawned on me is maybe I was deficient in essential amino acids. And if I took them, maybe then I could. Try the enzymes again and see what happened. Because I thought there must be something wrong with me that I got this severe gastric upset felt like at burned out the inside of my stomach with these enzymes, like, maybe I was deficient in Mukul proteins. Or you know something that coated my stomach. So after I had taken a few months of these amino acids, and I had the I was feeling really better. And I said, a PR at ironman, Canada of three or four months later, I thought may be this earlier problem with digest in these enzymes or handling. These enzymes was related to an essential amino acid deficiency. So I then said, I'm going to do the experiment again..

"And the liver, even the brain during long-term endorse exercise. And my friend, Peter Tia reached out to me, and told me about this company biosteel, and how they make these branched chain amino acids and Peter hooked me up with that company. I tried the branch chain amino acids in my race. And I felt the pick me up. However, I still still balked around mile seven of the half marathon of ironman, Canada, in two thousand thirteen so I went back to the drawing board and this was about the same time serendipitous Lee enough that I met you and you started talking to me about how the the branched chain amino acids, and we'll we'll get into this later on today might not cover all the bases. Especially when it comes to staving off things like central nervous system. Fatigue during these these long races in and so I started using instead of branch chain amino acids essential amino acids during my races. And it was like rocket fuel. I was actually taking about a decent amount, right? I would take about five to ten grams per hour during a night tower race. And I didn't bark anymore. Even though I was still limiting the amount of carbohydrates, that I took in. And so that was when the light bulb went on for me when it came to amino acids, then I learned about the gut benefits and the muscle building benefits. And, you know, the fact that, that, you know, it's kind of like a well-kept secret of the bodybuilding industry. These guys walking around, you know, jacked the gym many of them are they've, they force branch chain amino acids, and they're now second down essential amino acids from their shaker bottles, because that's what keeps them highly anabolic during these workouts. And that's kind of how I discovered amino acids, not during my bodybuilding days during my Kito genyk, ironman days win. Did you actually kind of kind of begin to get interested in amino acids, and research them getting to use them for your own protocol? Well, I was I was racing ironman since nineteen eighty two and about ten years ago, I was doing track workout, and I, I really strained hamstring and tried for probably year to get it to heal. And I could have access to everything I had people injected massaged microcurrent it chiropractor it nutrition it. And, but every time I tried to go really push it, I would feel the soreness and was afraid, I was going to tear it. And I bumped into somebody who said, oh, he got some, you know, acid mixtures from Europe and I should try it, and I tried it and probably than six weeks, I felt no pain, I could strain it hard and it didn't bother me. And at the same time, I noticed that my maximum heart rate, actually, improved by about twelve beats I, I was running like one, seventy four as a sort of max heart rate. And it went up to one eighty six and I thought holy smokes..

"We don't want to miss word. Okay. We'll be right back keep calling from a clinician standpoint. I think that if doctors looked at this more often in their patients. They would be pounded as as to how many of their patients are really very nutritionally deficient, and if they made their nutrition if they're able to get into their bodies rectum enough amino acids, essential fats, in vitamins and minerals that everything will work better because the body can't work without these things. I'm going to ask you a one t. Focus on specific. Patient groups and ask you how amino acids would affect this condition, and you I heard you speak and you spoke about how you had an inflamed intestine. Well, let me tell you that the story was interesting because here I am a vegetarian and I I get a hamstring injury. So I'm I'm working out fifteen to twenty hours a week swim bike, run yoga wait. You know, I I'm, I'm into it. I, I pull a hamstring. Years. I can't get the hamster to heal. I miss is I have chiropractic I have electrical spin. I have I, I did everything I injected it with mommy Pathak's. I you know, I have accessed almost anything and I did everything. And if I if it stopped hurting, and then I would go to the track and try to do some hard running, it would hurt again. And then I bumped into somebody, so your friend of mine he'd been in Europe and he bought what is now known as perfect amino in Europe. He was being filled there, actually for weight loss purposes. Mostly, and he said, why don't you try this, and he gave me a bottle gave me a couple of bucks, actually and took ten twice a day. Which is a high dose and after about three and a half weeks. I my hamstring, he'll now just prior to me doing this a very good friend of mine, who is a does cancer, nutrition and worked with Dr Kelly before he died. She was at my office and he was helping us consult with cancer patients, and one of the things that she used were these enzymes that were developed by Dr Kelly, and, and they're very high potent that yesterday inside the theory being cancer protects itself with proteins. And if you can take the enzymes and very does, you'll digest off the proteins, and then the immune system. We'll see the cancers, and they'll eat cancers up. So I read Kelly's book one afternoon while she was here and Kelly says, you know, a good way to test. If you have brewing cancer in your body is take these enzymes for a week. Or so NC if you start getting reactions. And if you don't get any reactions, your five if you get reactions, you probably have ruined cancer in the enzymes are handling it, and you'll be better. So I thought I'm gonna go for. That's really very interesting going so the that you're supposed to take twelve of these enzymes an empty stomach three times a day as a trial for either three or five days about what it was. So I take I wake up in the morning and I'm excited about this trial. And I take the twelve hundred times and I drink a glass of water and within about two hours. My stomach was on fire, and it was on fire. I thought I had a burning author, I had it started taking scoops carbonate to try to take to get the thing to, to come out and I saw my friend later that day, and I said, you know, I don't know. I don't know. I don't think I have cancer can't take these. They were digesting me and, and I'm not gonna I'm not gonna take anymore and she kinda got a puzzle book in her face. She heard that before and I just left it. So shortly thereafter, I heard about the perfect meal. I started taking it a hamstring. Healed, and like three months later, I was Abe. I did ironman, Canada and I had the best time I'd ever had. And I noticed some other physiologic changes like my maximum heart rate went up by twelve points. And this is, you know, I've been tracking this for fifteen years, and I knew, you know, at maximum when I could do, and there was a definite city logical change in my body. I was stronger. I was faster and my cardiac performance was really better. So then it dawned on me. I thought maybe I couldn't handle those, those enzymes because my you know, something was missing in the I was vegetarian. Now, I was taking me no acid that my body was better. And I actually gained about eight or nine pounds of lean body muscle lean body mass when I was started taking the perfect meal. I, I in my wasted and change my organs, which had been starved from being vegetarian feel the in that I was so concerned about it. I called the scientists that developed the product and I spend my weight is going up every week and, you know, I don't want to be heavier 'cause you, you race better when you're lean. But I looked just as lean maybe a little bit more muscular. He said your bones are feeling in your organs are feeling in. You have been deficient in the me. No acid. Now, your body is in the long listed had of things that it couldn't do. That's better for you. I thought what the heck maybe somehow my stomach, and I'm gonna try being the enzymes again. And I took well with a glass of water nothing happened later on that Dan to pull more. I took five days of the of the twelve three times a day of these super potent protease, again, not nothing happened to my stomach more wiggle. And that, that was a deficiency for me, my stomach, whatever it was. And I don't know didn't make enough mucus or didn't have the right coating or whatever it was, was deficient. And I you know, I would've never known that. So the success stories that people write in, you know, like, I'm my orthopedic surgeons worst nightmare, because I get injured and I don't he'll planner fasciitis, right? Got a rotator cuff and I don't he'll, and when we give these. When we give these athletes, they, they heal, they get better. I, I could tell you one more story about this. This is this is one of the doctors who was working with the US postal professional cycling team. You know, Lance Armstrong in the group this was in the earlier years, they had known that no matter what they did nutritionally, those writers by the end of a of a twenty two day tour to France would be broken down. They all have tendonitis they'd all be exhausted. They lose their hemoglobins would go down there muscle. Mass would go down and no matter what they said them, or what IBM nutrition, they gave them they would break down. And so I said, why don't you try them on the perfect amino during the tour and they took ten tablets three times a day. The top writers did. And they were anabolic by. The end of that tour. They weren't looking down there hemoglobins did go down. And he said they never seen that before standing that has an astounding founding. It really is. I've worked with someone bicyclists the captain of the team..

"Rampant glucose levels. My CRP was through the roof. I was healthy on the outside. But I was unhealthy on the inside. And so our member it was two thousand thirteen when I began to look into this thing called Kito service. And not a lot of people were really talking about Kito sus at that point. There were all these fancy Kito supplements, and Kito summits and Kito bars and Kito oatmeal and Kito cookies that tastes like cardboard, by the way. But, but I I wanted to figure out if there's a way that I could do something like a, you know, an iron man triathlon and not eat the four hundred Ishbel Lowery's of carbohydrates that most of my peers were consuming at the time. So I began to look into although things like Kitone salts and Kitone esters weren't really thing at that point or commercially available. I began to look into things like MCAT oils or different forms of Capri LIC acid. I began to look into amino acids began to look into electrolytes a lot of these things that can help to sustain the body during exercise without many carbohydrates on board. And I started a tap into in the minds of some of these people who are in the industry at that point. Like, I remember when I when I balked during ironman Canada with my first four into Kito sus, I called Dr Peter Attiyah, and he exposed to this idea of taking a meal acids. So that while you're exercising. You can stave off a blood glucose response, but still not. Doc because the amino acids compete for trip to fan across the blood brain barrier and keep you from getting sleepy during exercise a lot of people think they run of carbohydrate during exercise they actually run out of a meal acids. There's this other guy this this child little research and the research on the corner of I think it was the ancestral health symposium. And nobody knew him and his name was Dominique de Steano. And he had this little poster presentation of these key tones he was studying up in on in rats. And now, of course, he's the he's the forefront of the Kito movement. But he kind of turn me onto this idea of using some of these Prelic acids MCAT's, and some of these things that were available before the advent of key tones, so that was how I started to get into this idea of some of the things I'm gonna talk about in the presentation today, like the myth of pre and post workout nutrition, and some of the turn it is to stuffing our face with carbohydrates to support exercise, even long periods of exercise, and when I began to experiment with a lot of these things, you know, a lot of my blood biomarkers began to normalize. No, no, more high blood glucose levels. No more high insulin levels might destroy went up. My CRP went down. I witnessed a lot of things happen. That showed me that these are things that you can do. And as a matter of fact, you can actually gain muscle or maintain muscle. If that's your goal when exercising in fasted state due to some of the growth hormone responses that I'm gonna tell you about today. Now just a little bit about me. I live at home in in Washington state with my wife and twin boys my wife does a lot of cooking demos and ancestral food preparation. I like to tell people I spend my life with one foot in the realm of ancestoral science and one foot in the realm of modern biohacking. I'm not close to the idea of a lot of these supplements Kitone salts and Kitone esters a lot of these bio hatch out there like photo by modulating. But I really liked to look to what our ancestors would have done as well. And try to combine both of those things in my practice in the in the supplements that formulate for my company key on in the work that I do I like to encourage people to forego all these crazy supplements, vile hacks, and everything until they are earthy in grounding getting a lot of mineral rich water that's pure and getting out in the sunlight, right if you can start with those three things than just about every other concept is just the icing on the cake. So it's earth. Grounding getting outside mineral rich. Water and sunlight starting there if there's anywhere that you can start to start to optimize your health. That's the key. So kion I mentioned it's just a company that I run where I formulate supplements..

"Distress. So you need to be careful not to get poopie pants doing your MCAT. But I used to do at least a tablespoon every hour when I'd race iron, man. And then I would combine that with the next thing that I'd recommend to you, and that would be amino acids, particularly essential amino acid. Do you know the the person I turned me onto using amino acids when I was racing. The two thousand thirteen you up there with me Brock the ironman, Canada two thousand. Yes. So my friend, Dr Peter Tia had recommended to me that I use the biosteel branch chain amino acids, and I used those, but the the data on essential amino acids, just blows branched chain amino acids out of the water when you look at the ability of the muscles to be able to recover because you're getting a full spectrum of me, no acids, and if you're doing today, or in this case, you know, seven days in a row of working out. Then I think that essential amino acids with Trump BCA's and in fact after doing that Canada race, I switched from the biosteel BCA's twin essential amino acid complex, very similar to what we have now at kion in terms of the ratios and noted a remarkable difference in energy levels. I think probably had more competing for trip to fan across the blood brain barrier with those amino acids, so less risk of central nervous system fatigue and bunking so to speak, you know, in a in a nervous system manner. Not not loss of carbohydrate manner. But a nervous system manner. And so you've got key tones or MCAT's, then you add amino acids that and then the other two components that you'll want because that means that you've you've kind of nailed you're easy to digest, you know, quote, fats, unquote, and you're easy to digest proteins in the form of menial acids, then you'd want some type of carbohydrate now I had in the past for very long period of time, recommended you can superstar as a very slow bleed carbohydrate, but I found that caused fermentation and gastric distress and a lot of people including myself..

"AM eight ninety John Dempsey Lauren Cohan sitting in for Stephanie trussell. We've been covering we've been here. She three o'clock. Actually, we came on the air about two forty five for the final vote in the US Senate on Brad Kavanagh who was confirmed by a vote of fifty to forty eight. And I just I'm looking at a tweet right now from Scotus blog. Cavanagh will be sworn in today by chief Justice John Roberts and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy now that's interesting because Cavanaugh clerked for Anthony Kennedy. The swing vote whose retirement pave the way for Kevin onto join the high court. The tweet goes on to say the ceremony will take place at the court and will allow cavenaugh to begin to participate in the work of the courts immediately. So he will immediately start hearing cases with the other eight justices of the US supreme court right into paint. That picture we saw the vehicle wherever he was watching the confirmation coming in. He was then driving to that location. All the while we still have thousands of protesters outside of the capitol and the supreme court who are upset about this compromise. Nation as you know, this is all going to continue on this fight for the midterms. Which is really, you know, the Democrats now are are really fired up. And I think some of the Republicans are fired up at perhaps, maybe the Democrats more. So because they're so upset about this. I also want to bring up the point that we have other things going on did have a historic verdict and the Jason Van Dyke, but we have a marathon tomorrow and a lot of people are running. So we can just take a breath and sorta get excited about the fact that we have the marathon, and it's going to be hot and humid. So an alert John has actually been issued what they call race too. I didn't even know this that they had alert levels and they've raised it to yellow because of the humidity level. A great story long are forty five thousand runners is that of our very own doctor Lynn Rogers here in Chicago. She was at the top of her game, professionally and physically and then something in her life went very wrong. Dr Lynn Rogers joining us. Thanks for being with us today. Thank you so much for having me. So. Tell our listeners the story of you know, where you were out with your iron man's. And then how everything suddenly changed for you? Sure. Well, I was ten days out from competing in ironman, Canada and had some really just subtle at first, but strange symptoms start. So I started feeling numbness in my fingers. The next day numbness in my feet after that my tongue went numb and food carts. Started to taste really strange lemonade is did off things were just odd and working at the Ashley ran ability lab, like I do around doctors, nurses, and physical, therapists. And so he consulted there's there's medical professionals around me. And generally was was advised to, you know, have it looked at and in the end, I would end up going through the ER and being looked at it by Enron. And at first nobody knew what was going on. It was really subtle every other tests that they did including spinal tap and Emmer is and all of these additional bloodwork things. All of it came back normal. But over the course of about ten days and in that ten days I would fly out to Whistler to attempt to do my race. But by race morning. I was in horrific pain in my back, all this, numbness tingling. My hands felt like they were it was like they were further, and it was like they were trying to thaw, which is bizarre, and I was very very weak. And we realized that you know, won the race was not going to happen. But by the by the end of the day cheering for friends. It was obvious that jumping was was very very wrong. So after consulting with doctors in Canada, everyone decided basically that if I was if I was not having trouble breathing. I should get on the plane. We did an emergency flight back to Chicago. And thankfully, my breathing. Was all right. And I would land go to northwestern memorial. This would be the very end of July in two thousand seventeen and I wouldn't be home until November. So it was a crazy crazy ride by the time. I got. To the hospital. And by the end of that that time it at northwestern. I was paralyzed from the chest down this time the next spinal tap would show high protein, which is a signal that it is a disease, which is rigidly diagnosed as Gambraith syndrome, which is an autoimmune disease get taxed the nervous system. So basically, my body was eating the coating on my nerves, which is why I was feeling all these crazy sensations, and I couldn't move. I was using losing the ability to move my muscle because the signals weren't getting there the nerves weren't working. So Dr after a lifetime of being an athlete competing is these iron man's and these marathons and things from July to November of twenty seventeen you were paralyzed from the chest down. I wasn't paralyzed the whole time. Thank goodness. I would probably paralyze fully paralyzed for the first three weeks for sure. But then I would start to improve we've to finally find the right treatment. There is no cure. But there are a couple of treatments and. Only one of the two available main treatments worked for me. It took us a while to figure that out. So I would start to get a little better. I would get moving back. We would move me from northwestern over to the ability lab, I would start to do rehab able to start to stand be able to start to walk, and then I would relapse and the paralysis would come back. And so that happened back and forth. All the way to November remarkable. We're talking to Dr Lynn Rogers who a triathlete, and then found herself as she said paralyzed from the chest down from this. Disease attacking your immune system is you are running in the marathon again tomorrow. Am I am so excited? So it was from paralysis to standing to walking. And you know, people have said that before had been asked that question of how did you think you could run or why did you think you could run like wasn't the goal had to be walking? But it was a runner. So for me the goal was never I don't want to say just walking. It's a big deal and can be a very big deal for people with these diseases to be able to walk. But that wasn't what I had in my head is the end game. I have been doing this Chicago marathon since two thousand two is how I met through the marathon running community in this town, which is phenomenal is how I met, you know, my partner how I met all my closest friends that are out outside of work. And it's just a huge part of nervous. I'm terrified. In a good way. I'm I'm nervous that I don't I don't get a choice on what days are good days in what gauges days are bad gays. And so I'm just hoping that tomorrow, I get up and can actually get out of bed because that's sometimes doesn't happen. Everything is pointing in the direction of things being good. But I'm very aware of the fact that this is what I have. Now, we know is a chronic form of of yamba Ray called CIP, and it's a fickle fickle disease. So I'm just fingers crossed that. It lets me do my thing. My feet are in pain all the time. That's fine has never gone away. And so I know that that's going to be there that entire time for twenty six point two miles, and it's it's a beast to deal with. But it's worth it to be up and moving, and you know, my feet are gonna hurt. Anyway. So why not have them hurt? And do what I love to do as opposed to just, you know, sit and think about the fact that my feet are hearing, Dr Lynn Rogers, longtime athletes. Has dealt with paralysis last year again bar syndrome, but she has good days and bad days. And it sounds like you are going to compete in the marathon tomorrow. Dr we wish you luck we congratulate you and don't get hurt out there. Thank you. I appreciate that. In for anyone interested. I'm raising money for the ability lab, and for the gambler AC ADP foundation, which sponsors research, and you can find that at Lynn Roger Chicago, marathon dot squarespacEcom fantastic. Well, thanks so much for joining us, by the way, the humidity is going to be ninety percent. Seven all over. I'm gonna I'm gonna track your good day track. You along with my good friend. Kristen MacQuarie from the Chicago Tribune who's going to be running her first marathon. But, wow, I just I feel like, you know, I'm only standing here in the studio, and you know, taking a breath on all the big news. That's going on today. But that's really something. Thank you. Thanks, Dr joining us. Good luck tomorrow. I'm so much. I'm watching the breaking news right now. John, and we've got Justice Brad Kavanagh. Now inside the supreme court is getting ready to swear him in and around him. Still. We've got thousands of protesters upset about this as we get to the midterms. Lots more to talk about this. We also the Jason Van Dyke verdict that came down on Friday. So coming up we're going to be talking to Brian Warner. He's a former police officer. He knows Jason Van Dyke. Very well. And I would not ask him number of questions about some of the reforms, and how police officers are now gonna fair when they're dealing with the community and their jobs as we move forward.
