PMR Episode 171 Feature Image


On this week’s episode we speak with Leo Vassershteyn, aka The Iron Lion. Leo is the owner, and personal trainer, at Iron Lion Gym in Mill Valley California and has degrees in Psychology and Exercise Biology from University of California Davis. Leo is passionate about functional primal movement and health and is a regular contributor to Paleo Magazine. Leo describes true primal movement as the developmental path of movement of the modern homosapien and offers up lessons on how to move and build strength with functional primal methods. You may also recognize him as the guy that’s always swinging those crazy maces around.

Today we catch up with Leo live from Paleo f(x), which was held in Austin earlier this year, where we chat about everything from crawling to the Russian swing, Cossack squats, kettlebells, CrossFit, and why we might be moving all wrong. If you are looking to incorporate primal movement into your training, correct bad habits, restore balance, or explore new-ancient methods, then this episode is for you!

What you'll hear in this episode:

  • Learn more about what a primal movement is.
  • Find out why we should crawl more.
  • Why we are walking and sitting wrong.
  • Debunking the "knees-shouldn't-pass-over-the-toes" myth.

PMR Episode 171 Feature Image


Today we are talking with strongwoman Aimee Rose. Aimee is a competitive strongwoman and spokesperson. She’s based in Ottawa, Ontario where she founded Love to Train, a holistic training facility that delivers health and wellness programs to people of all ages and abilities. After struggling a lot of her life with scoliosis and food sensitivities, doctors labeled her physically disabled when she was a kid. But she decided to take her health into her own hands, challenging herself to learn and compete and she got in to bodybuilding, strongman, and even an Ironman. Now, as a coach, she helps apply these same techniques and knowledge that she gained to help other people find their own strengths. In this episode we talk about her work, and the fundamentals of strongman workouts. We also get into chatting about empowering yourself in the gym and how this can have so many positive effects in the rest of your life as well.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Learn more about the Intro to Strongman workshop.
  • How strength training can be a powerful tool to empower you in your entrepreneurial journey.
  • Aimee's story of how she got started in strongman competitions, despite her disabilities.
  • Why Aimee believes strongman is a really empowering sport.
  • What to know before getting into strongman.
  • The general demographic and background of strongman competitors and athletes.
  • Why Aimee considers herself to be a hybrid athlete, and what that actually means.
  • Learn more about Aimee's new book, Discover Your Strong.
  • Easy, quick, at-home strongman movements you can try today.
  • And much more!

 

“I just love everything about strongman. It’s a completely weird and abnormal way to move.” — @strongaimeerose [0:05:16.1]

“Being a strength athlete, it forces you to create the structure that you need so that you’re more efficient at life.” — @strongaimeerose [0:09:56.1]

“Action is always the first step towards anything and if you don’t try it, you’ll never really know.” — @strongaimeerose [0:11:49.1]

PMR Episode 170 Feature Image


Just like knowing someone’s history can help you understand them better, understanding your DNA can help you better understand your own body’s needs. On today’s show we talk with former Olympic athlete, Craig Pickering. Craig is a former Olympic sprinter and competed in four world championships and the 2008 Olympic Games before switching to bobsleigh and qualifying for the 2014 winter Olympics, making Craig only the eighth British person to be selected for both a summer and winter Olympic Games. There’s no doubt he’s got one heck of a good story and a ton of great insights on human performance to share.

Today Craig heads up another one of his passions called DNAFit. DNAFit uses genetic information to let us know what types of training, food and supplementation will help us maximize our health and athletic performance. We had a chance to take this test and learn all kinds of interesting things and in today’s interview, we get to use our results as an example for how to use this service.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • How Craig became a professional athlete.
  • Why Craig moved from the 100m Olympic sprint to British Bobsleigh.
  • What a bobsleigh is really like, and Craig’s experience.
  • Craig’s injury setback and how he got involved in DNAFit.
  • What DNAFit is and how DNAFit testing works?
  • How DNAFit helped Craig himself.
  • What we discovered using the DNAFit test.
  • Endurance versus power training. Which is best for me?
  • How to navigate your individual injury-risk level.
  • The most common diet recommendations that are given out through DNAFit.
  • What the caffeine gene is.
  • How to reduce trial and error by understanding your DNA.
  • How to quit fickle dieting plans for good!
  • Any much more!

“I had kind of a choice; either get a real job or find somebody else to pay me to do sports.” — @craig100m [0:05:04.1]

“Being in an actual bobsleigh was horrific.” — @craig100m [0:07:15.1]

“If we know what DNA we’ve got, we can change the training and diet we do to best suit our genetic makeup.” — @craig100m [0:10:53.1]

“The biggest issues around DNA testing is that people aren’t aware that you can do it and how valid it is.” — @craig100m [0:15:11.3]

“There is no good news or bad news, just actionable news.” — @craig100m [0:27:02.3]

“Having a better idea, at the start, of what works for you could be massively important.” — @craig100m [0:37:01.4]

PMR Episode 169 Feature Image


On today’s show we're talking to the founder of The New Primal, Jason Burke. Jason started making his own jerky because he needed a healthy option and it went well, and the rest is history. Now he’s offering that healthy option to all of us, at more than 6,000 locations around the US as well as online. This company makes grass fed, grass finished beef jerky as well as marinades, meat sticks and even cute, perfectly proportioned snack mates for the kiddie’s lunch boxes.

This company has helped change the public’s perception of jerky from an aggressive salted and sugared trucker treat that you pick up at the gas station to a healthful, nourishing snack that really anyone can enjoy. In today’s episode, we talk about his product, the growing pains of running a company as well as having a life and a lot more.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Jason's background and how he came to be where he is now.
  • How he continues to differentiate and set himself apart from new jerky companies.
  • What Jason’s jerky recipe consists of.
  • The kid specific products that are available at The New Primal.
  • How Jason has entered new market segments with his healthy jerky.
  • How the packaging is inclusive and not classic meathead kind style.
  • What product is the most popular product from The New Primal.
  • How Jason found and developed a relationship with his suppliers.
  • How the local market is starting to make steps into the direction of grass fed cows.
  • The challenges of sourcing poultry.
  • How he and his family maintain a healthy lifestyle and find a balance.
  • The new products that The New Primal has and what to look out for..
  • And much more!

“Paleo or not, we’re among the cleanest that you’ll get and we don’t skimp on animal welfare practices at all.” — @thenewprimal [0:08:38.1]
