Today's episode is a crosscast from the new Look Good Move Well podcast. This concept is so important to me, I could talk about it for hours. Vacuuming. Getting out of the car. Standing up. It’s easy to take our ability to move for granted, until it’s taken away. Just like Marcus’s baby daughter, the more ways you can move, the more freedom you have in life. Finding your own entry point into loving the way you can move will also keep you motivated in your training. Listen in to get inspired and take our 5-minute flow challenge!

Today's podcast episode is a conversation I had with Pawel Wencel from Uncharted Performance. I was on the other side of the mic for once and got asked some very good questions. We talk about some of the unique characteristics that have contributed to helping me expand as a person, coach, and host. Some of the central themes identified by Pawel included creativity, exploring, questioning, listening, and coaching. We then talk about how these 5 elements get incorporated into my movement practice, relationships, personal development, and self expression through conscious and persistent effort. My favorite part of Pawel's description is that this all happens while being vulnerable and breaking a few rules along the way.

Brianna is also a coach here at Revival Strength and we get to shine light on some of the admirable qualities I get to notice about her in that role. I've always wanted to learn more about how to improve my rowing from someone who has a solid background in this discipline.

Shanna Guzman is a coach here at Revival Strength. She's someone I've had the chance to learn a lot from over the last several months. Especially when it comes to anything endurance related. Shanna comes from a swimming background, where she won a world championship in the 200m Backstroke in 2006 and multiple national titles from 2006-2012.

She's currently being coached by Mike Lee of OPEX and is focused on developing herself to compete in the 40+ division of the CrossFit Games this year. The most fascinating part for me is talking about the honesty it takes to live the lifestyle of a competitor while also pursuing a coaching career.

Show Notes:

  • (19:00) - Rhythms between coaching and competing
  • (27:45) - Learning

Brian Mackenzie is back on the show!! He has studied performance and movement for more than a decade along with altitude, hypoxia, breathing mechanics, heat and cold exposure. He most recently co-authored the book "Unplugged" with Dr. Andy Galpin.

This episode builds upon our first one (EP.13), where we dug into the science and physiology behind breathing. I went through a breath assessment and have been experimenting with my customized breathing protocols for the last 4 weeks. I've been using it to process and switch between tasks more efficiently, mitigate unwanted stress and anxiety, and really observing how these different protocols affect your physiological state.

My favorite segments of this episode are where we discuss creative process, the forgotten art of apprenticeship, time management, and the dance between fulfillment and challenge. Oh and you'll also hear about how Brian's been swimming with sharks for some new research studies on fear and anxiety coming out of Stanford's laboratories.

Show Notes:

  • (6:50) - The Art of Breath
  • (8:37) - Research for fear & anxiety
  • (12:06) - How different breath protocols impact your physiological state
  • (25:35) - Balancing intensity with day to day activities
  • (28:00) - Task Switch
  • (35:05) - Creative process
  • (39:17) - Time management
  • (47:26) - Intuition
  • (53:00) - Methods of learning
  • (58:58) - Collaboration and the zone of genius
  • (1:02:33) - Art of Apprenticeship
  • (1:07:50) - Systems and parallels
