AdapNation is all about removing roadblocks and enabling you to #BeYourBest. And when it comes to roadblocks… Back Pain is the leading cause of disability globally!

But… have we placed far too much emphasis on ageing, degeneration, injury, surgery and opioid medications where it comes to the discussion and treatment of back issues?

Be prepared to hear a different story. We’ve got on the refreshing and ground breaking Professor Peter O'Sullivan on the show to give us a crash course on the reality of our backs, back pain management, and how to have a healthy back into your old age.  

Peter is a Professor of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Curtin University, Perth, is one of the most influential and innovative names in this specialty - with half his time spent on clinical research into Pain and pain disorders, and the other hand of his time treating 1000’s people with pain issues. 

As always, this is an insightful and hugely practical interview, with big ideas, mind-blowing concepts, and has the potential to make a big difference to so many peoples lives.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! The time to be merry, connect with family, eat well… and reflect on how we showed up through the course of the year. 

Sticking to the AdapNation ritual, Bryn and Steve get together with hot drink in hand just before Christmas, to look back at the year just been and honestly self-reflect on our performance and satisfaction. Oh, and a biiiiiig announcement…. 

Did we do what we said we would? Have we lived up to our values and expectations? Did we miss the target on any of our 2019 declared themes? Were there any pleasant surprise victories along the way? 

It’s such a cathartic and and inspiring process. Hopefully our honesty, reflection and questions spark a similar process for you and those close to you. 

 

Here’s the format of our reflection & planning - https://adapnation.io/111-2019-reflections-and-big-announcement

Dr. Bill Schindler, the hands-on anthropologist and archeologist, and overall student of prehistoric and indigenous cultures and tooling, joins us today for what is a truly fascinating and thought provoking discussion on our evolution as a species.

Bill’s on a mission to take the archaeological record and get the truth out there to the masses. He believes is we can all better understand our evolutionary past, and what critical nutritional and tooling decisions were made along the way to result in the most capable species on the planet, then we will know how to thrive as individuals today.

It’s astounding just how much we know about our early cultures, practices, diets, food processing, tooling and how we acquired our food.

Furthermore, the strong linkage we have established between an increase in nutrient density in our diets and the explosion in body size, brain volume, intelligence, social skills and proliferation is a compelling call to better respect the power of nutrition.

In this episode, Bill helps us understand the connection between the technology we developed, and our very existence! That without the food acquiring and processing tools we developed and harnessed, we simply would not be. This is powerful stuff!

 

This episode strongly makes the case to return to an ancestral-influenced diet, with evidence and logic that is hard to refute.

 

Check out the show notes for a full run down of what we cover. Enjoy! This will absolutely help you #BeYourBest.

Nir Eyal, a foremost leader in understanding behaviour design, habit formation, and developing compelling technology, joins us today for a truly fascinating and highly relatable discussion on the modern plague - DISTRACTION.

Full Show Notes of what we discussed - https://adapnation.io/109-indistractable-nir-eyal/

Nir has been advising companies for years on how to design tech that gets us hooked. Who better to seek counsel from than an industry insider when it comes to hacking back and reclaiming our focus?! Nir wrote the book (literally) on how to get people hooked on tech, as well as how to become indistractable.

If you want to live the most fulfilled life and achieve what you really want, in line with your values, then you must develop a framework and mindset that limits the distraction and noise, and allows you more traction in the things that really matter. Distraction pulls us away from action, and often break our own rules and values. So why do we allow it to happen… all the time?!

That’s exactly what we’re going to cover in this episode. The what, why and how of distraction, at the scientific and deeply psychological level. You’ll better understand your behaviours - which are natural human behaviours, as well as understanding how you can claim back control.

We also spend a lot of time discussing the elephant in the room. Whether we should be blaming the big tech giants for causing deep distraction and the growing mental health crisis. Are they really the issue? Are we doomed to fall under their spell and get less and less important stuff done? 

Are our kids destined for a terrible future due to social media in their lives? Are they powerless to the ever strengthening algorithms?

This and so much more. You’ll love this one, I’m sure! You may even relate to Steve’s issues with distraction and pain avoidance...

Keto and Animal-Based advocate, Muscle Building Expert, and doting dad Danny Vega joins us on this episode for an incredible discussion around Keto, Kids Health, Traditional Nutrition and addressing the Health Issues of our modern processed and plant-heavy western diets. 

Danny Vega is most well known for his enthusiasm for the ketogenic diet and how he has successfully integrated this nutritional lifestyle within his loving family and in the gym. He runs a successful blog and podcast called Fat Fuelled family with his with Maura, and their kids even have a instagram page showcasing their nutrient-dense low carb diet! 

Danny is the real-deal. Honest, caring, and genuinely motivated to help people understand the practicality of thriving on a very counter-culture way of eating. He also defies the narrative that you cannot build muscle on a Keto / low carb diet… he’s jacked! 

Danny has teamed up with prior AdapNation guest Ben Pakulski to design and successfully implement a nutritional and training regime for people wanting to maximise muscle growth whilst on a ketogenic diet. We agreed to do a part two soon on exactly that. It’s a hotly requested topic, and Danny has the answers to building muscle on a low card diet! 

 

This is an amazing conversation, as I knew it would be. We cover a ton, and Danny calls out the great insights from 17 leaders in nutrition and fitness space, all of which are linked in the Show Notes below.

Today, we have Bryn Jenkins back on the mics, after his visit to to the Mind Pump Studio in California and getting educated but the pro-sports strength and conditioning Joe DeFranco. 

This episode is all about how to improve your sport performance and body mechanics, as well as your quality of life by doing the right things in the gym. 

Bryn shares with us the essence and key principles of what he picked up by Joe DeFranco and his world-class team of S&C coaches. This is a rare insight into what is most important for athletes to perform at their best, by pairing they sports practice with deliberate work in the gym. 

For me (Steve), very much a non-athlete, there was so much for me to consider and use in my own endeavours of being strong, muscular, functional and healthy. I’m sure you’ll get a ton of value too.

AdapNation Food Diary - 100’s of Tasty Healthy Meal Ideas, that are focussed on helping you thrive 

This is AdapNation’s first solo Podcast, almost 2 years in! I (Steve) will be sharing all the details and current personal experiences with my last and final dieting phase, as my ambitious two year body transformation comes to an end.

In Jan 2018, I publicly declared my body goal, and have been hard at work for the last two years working towards this aspirational physique. The journey ends with a photoshoot on 11th December 2019 at the AdapNation Gym. So, I’d better trim off the excess fat!

In this shorter episode, I share with you how I am going about losing 13lbs in 5 weeks, whilst retaining my muscle mass and getting photoshoot ready. 

As always, it’s a transparent and honest insight into my experiences, and not just some theory on how to lose weight. I give you the full scoop, so you can go about doing something similar if you fancy it.

 

Here’s what I cover:

🔸Update and Stats on My Current Cut

🔸How I specifically designed this last dieting phase

🔸The Fasting Blitz Cut - a full run down of schedule, calories and reasoning

🔸My Food Choices and Supplements during this cut

🔸My approach to Training and Exercise

🔸How I feel mentally, emotionally and physically on this aggressive diet

🔸The Pros and Cons of this approach to my goals and life in general

🔸What will happen after this diet

 

I referenced a few things in this Podcast:

▪︎ My Jan 2018 Body Journal declaring my 2 year goal

▪︎ 2019 W45 Body Journal explaining the Fasting Blitz Cut

▪︎ #HyperWorkouts - Weight Training Programs I am following (DEC-19 releasing shortly)

Regular legend-of-a-guest joins us again! This Podcast with Christian Thibaudeau is another paradigm-shattering discussion - this time about Optimal Training Modalities, Training To Failure, Overtraining and Maximum Natty Muscle Building Potential.

Christian Thibaudeau, with 25+ years lifting and coaching experience, has written the book on weight lifting for athletic performance and bodybuilding gains. With 535 articles on T-Nation alone, combined with extensive courses on his website Thibarmy.com as well as his muscle training camps, Christian is a leading authority in this space. It would benefit you to cling on to his every word!

In episode #103: How To Maximise ‘Natty’ Muscle Growth ~Paul Carter, Paul dropped some foundational tenets of muscle growth that was hard to swallow. It butted heads with many opposing views of muscle development, but it sounded both plausible, logical and backed up be many successful physiques. Christian and Paul are close friends and respected peers, as regular contributors to T-Nation. It turns out that they share may of the same principles of muscle growth, with subtle takes on a few sub topics. Ultimately, they converge on what they have seen to work for them and countless 1,000’s of other lifters. 

Well, think of this interview with Christian Thibaudeau as a part two to #103. We double click into some of the same topics, offering alternative perspectives with similar conclusions. It also extends the discussion on the detrimental effect of overtraining and how to know if you are overtrained.

We spend a lot of time unpacking the volume and training to failure debates, which is fascinating. We also cover Christian’s current training, his biggest training mistakes, and the most supported view on how much muscle you can add on to an untrained natural lifter’s body.

As always, this discussion with Christian is jam packed with science, logic and experience. It has the opportunity to fundamentally shift your approach to the gym and building muscle! It has for me… again!

So much so, that Steve has personally adopted Paul and Christian’s principles and is really enjoying their approach. We'll be sharing our Christian/Paul inspired Workout Plan in the upcoming DEC-19 #HyperWorkouts Workout Plan. Subscribe to the AdapNation Newsletter to get informed when this drops (early December 2019).

This episode is a wonderful and impactful interview with professional explorer James Ketchell, where he shares his experiences, lessons and key life advice he’s accumulated through his travels.

James Ketchell is the only man on the planet to have completed the ultimate global triathlon - rowing the Atlantic solo, climbing Everest and cycling around the world! Oh, as well as solo flying around the world in a tiny open top gyrocopter! 

What an amazing story of following your passion, having unquestionable belief, and finding your true happiness. James has the unique perspective of starting with nothing, being a depressed child, being told he cannot walk again after a devastating accident… followed by conquering the world several times over.

Stuff that dreams are made of. What is more powerful and and accomplished than successfully exploring the world that we live on, being on the top of it, and the amazing stories of survival and grit to journey to the unknown… time and again.

This is not just a story of one mans brilliance. Far from it. This episode is mostly about the powerful life lessons that James has learnt along the way, which are 100% applicable to everyone who listens.

LOVED THIS INTERVIEW. I hope you do too. #BeYourBest

Interview with Paul Carter- the straight talking, seriously knowledgable and impactful leader in the online bodybuilding community.

An awesome conversation for the normal guy or gal to naturally maximise their muscle building results in the gym. A MUST LISTEN episode. Be prepared to be challenged...

Paul is a resident writer for T-Nation, with 5+ years of world class writing under his belt, including several books and pieces for M&F and Flex. Paul has been training with intent for 30+ years, has powerlifted for a decade, and has developed both an enviable bodybuilding knowledge-base and physique.

What Paul Carter doesn’t know about the gym and developing your physique… isn’t worth knowing. Most interestingly, he’s committed to a life of Wellness AND developing Size for the last four years, and describes this change as a massive paradigm shift for himself.

This is a great episode, as Steve gets SCHOOLED… several times throughout the chat. You need these conversations. To test you understanding of the world, and a willingness to change your view or beliefs if someone gives you great reasons to. That’s what Paul did today,

I (Steve) am incredibly grateful for Paul’s care to call BS on some ideas I’ve been exploring, as well as some of my recent decisions. Muscle building is very nuanced and individual, but some things are too compelling to not pay closer attention to.

This is a cracker! Enjoy… and #BeYourBest

Multi world-record holder Mike McCastle joins us for a truly inspirational conversation about testing the limits of human potential through his story of the 12 Labours Project. 

Mike spent 11 years in the US Navy after 9/11 inspired him to serve. However, his identify was destroyed when injury and surgery took his physicality from him. From this dark place, he found the purpose and fortitude to test the limits of his soul over the last half decade, through awe inspiring feats of human physical performance.

Mike McCastle has completed 58-4 pull ups in 24 hours, flipped a 250lbs tyre for 13 mils straight, climbed a rope for the height of Mount Everest, and pulled a 2 ton truck through Death Valley for 22 miles! All with charity and inspiring greatness in mind. We get into some of these insane feats on the show.

 

However, this podcast is more about YOU, than it is Mike. We dig into and attempt to decode his infinitely stoic mindset and capacity for pain and suffering, in order to pull the relatable and accessible ideas out for you to think about and implement… in your own way.

Really, this conversation is about committing to a life of greatness, embracing suffering and struggle, how personal belief, purpose and commitment are critical to a life well-lived, and how to control you tyrant too a chimp brain that always want to quit and take the easy path. Fascinating stuff!

 

Enjoy. And… #BeYourBest!

PART 2. The BIG question. 

How do we as a species struggle so deeply with managing a healthy and athletic weight? We seem to be the only ‘animal’ that has undesirable and uncontrollable weight gain - spreading like a virus across modern societies. What gives?

We cover this, and much much more in this info packed two parter. Our best attempt in providing you the keys to a great body AND great health… for the rest of your life. 

It’s time to revisit FAT LOSS on the podcast. It’s a common thread in our discussions of course, but our last comprehensive 101 on how to lose and keep fat off was in Ep13-15!

Our knowledge and experience has developed. There is nuance in our recommendations, and a couple new effective ideas have been embraced with great effect in the last 15 months. 

 

Hope you enjoy it! #BeYourBest

Danny Penman is considered one of the best meditation and mindfulness teachers globally, with 1.5 million+ copies sold of his best selling book Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World, and his materials used to teach schools, universities and hospitals around the world.

As an award winning journalist, meditation teacher and best selling author, Danny has a unique perspective on the value and impact of meditation. Moreover, his personal discovery of the power of mindfulness is both shocking and inspiring.

And let’s face it, the global mental health issues are escalating, due to the mounting stress-induing triggers in our lifestyles, and the lack of sufficient prioritisation for breathing, calmness and mindfulness.

Mindfulness is clinically proven to be one of the most effective treatments for anxiety, stress and depression. It is also widely accepted that Meditation and time away from rumination frees our mind to think of new solutions, be more compassionate and have deeper levels of gratitude.

For these reasons, and the fact that I (Steve) am on my own early journey of discovering a better life through meditation and mindfulness, I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to get some direct coaching from THE meditation guy.

In this episode, we have the one and only Ben Pakulski - the modern day bodybuilding and wellness legend!

FULL SHOW NOTES of what we discussedhttps://adapnation.io/98-Ben-Pakulski

 

We catch up at the Health Optimisation Summit London, where Ben just wrapped up his talk and what marked the start of his 2019 European tour. Buzzing from the learning, curiosity and intellectual debate of this event, we managed to grab Ben in a reflective and philosophical headspace.  

It was a true pleasure, even if in a loud and hot arirbnb (that’s central London for you!). Sorry upfront, but it does as a certain ambience to the audio. 😉

 

Ben Pakulski has redefined his career to one focussed on thriving, wellness and living your best life. His podcast and overarching website Muscle Intelligence is considered one of the best resources out there, and has a huge loyal following. Ben pairs experience, drive, intelligence, and an insatiable curiosity to make for great conversations of discovery and reflection.

Ben is on a mission to navigate and curate the burden of noise in the self-optimisation space, in order to personally find and share the true value with his audience. He is not only looking for the what, but also the who. "Who does this apply to?…"

 

As expected, an awesome conversation. I wish we had more time, but we managed to have a deep and valuable conversation. There are some powerful concepts shared by Ben in this episode, that have the potential to move the needle in your Mindset, Life and Training - immediately!

In this episode, we have the wonderful Sally Fallon Morelljoin us from the Weston A Price Foundation. Sally is one of the foremost global leaders in nutrient-dense ancestral living through respecting and returning to our traditional diet, and is driven by a truly noble and caring cause. 

Full Show Notes of discussion -  https://adapnation.io/97-westernaprice/

  

Sally is the Founder and President of the Weston A Price Foundation, that she setup in 1999, as well as a best-selling author. The Weston A Price Foundation is held in high regard by global nutritional leaders, often considered the definitive source of traditional nutritional wisdom. Those who attempt to return full health and human potential back to western societies usually cite the work of this foundation.

The foundation showcases and extends the brilliant one-of-a-kind and unrepeatable work of of Weston A Price, a dentist, who travelled the world observing the contrast in diet and health of indigenous tribes when compared to modern western cultures. He performed observational studies, nutritional testing, took thousands of pictures of indigenous people, and hypothesised that the departure from traditional nutritional principles was the leading cause to the health issues we were (and are ) seeing. He is most famous for documenting his findings in the his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.

In this interview, Sally introduces us to the key principles of a nutrient dense diet through describing Weston A Price’s observations, talking about the myriad of issues in the modern diet and guidelines, and placing a positive emphasis on our need to embrace saturated fat.

Most of all, Sally argues strongly for the need to take full responsibility as adults on the health of our children, and just how important a nutrient-dense diet is to their development from preconception through to a young adult. This is a heart warming and convincing plea, backed up with logic and science.

Enjoy!

Myopia (shortsightedness) is an eye condition where distant objects appear blurry, and is thought to affect a staggering 1 in 3 people in the UK alone. 

More and more kids are getting prescribed corrective lenses at 5 and 6 years old, and get steadily worse eyesight into their 20’s. How can it be that as a species our genetics are failing us so badly, where almost 40% of us have failing eyesight - a critical attribute to surviving and thriving?

 

Well, to discuss this condition, and the sorry state of our eyesight globally, we have the insightful and entertaining Jake Steiner join us.  

Jokingly, Jake has acquired the cringe-worthy tittle of the 'Eye Guru', as he naturally corrected his eye to 20/20 vision without surgery, and has supported 10’s of thousands of others also reverse their Myopia.

He is the founder and central figure behind the popular Endmyopia.org website and associated social platforms, and continues to provide a refreshing counter to the Lens and Glasses industry.

 

In this discussion, expect to hear about Jakes own journey of understanding and eyesight correction, some 101 on eyesight principles and research and the key principles behind Jake’s claims of returning your sight, at any age.

 

Here’s what we discuss:

🔸 Life in the Burmese Jungle

🔸 What is Myopia, Pseudo Myopia and Lens Induced Myopia? - What are the causes?

🔸 Are our genetics really letting us down so badly?

🔸 Jake’s personal story of worsening and life limiting eyesight (-5)

🔸 The overwhelming research and resources online - e.g. scholar.google.com

🔸 Jake’s meandering journey to 20/20 vision (actually 20/15!) over the years of trial and error

🔸 What is Axial Length of the Eyeball? - and how the eye adapts throughout our lives

🔸 Glasses makes our eyesight worse! - What happens physiologically when you wear lenses?

🔸 The reason for needing Reading Glasses - and Jake’s personal belief on how he will avoid them

🔸 Kids and glasses - The need to combat this trend. And it’s not with buying them specs...

🔸 The big Issue with Screens - The impact on our eyesight, and lives...

 

🔸 The Key Principles to Correcting Your Eyesight (up to 1 diopter a year)

          👁 No Eye Exercises

          👁 Home Eyesight Measurement

          👁 Assess Lifestyle

          👁 Reducing Time & Strength of Correction

This is a unique insight into the dark and seemingly inescapable world of hard drug addiction. It’s also an episode of hope, inspiration and deep life questions.

Nick Elvery, a Performance Coach to CEO’s and Entrepreneurs, joins us to openly explore the painful 12 year drug addiction that owned his life and destroyed everything in its wake. His hard drugs and alcohol addiction destroyed his health, ruined relationships and brought him to his knees both physically and mentally. Having overcome his addiction to drugs and alcohol, Nick wanted to see what else was possible. What would it take for him to operate at his full potential? He then went on to create Optimised.

 

If you are grappling with drug addiction of any sort and are trying to escape it, or you are genuinely motivated to empathise and help people who are in that position, then you’ll find this conversation insightful and inspiring.

If you’re trying to understand the formula to happiness, fulfilment and life balance, this transformation story digs into the complexity of these questions that have haunted humans for our entire existence.

🔸 Rehab - The process and journey to Sobriety

🔸 Grateful or Ashamed? - Nick caused a lot of damage in his wake. How does he feel about his past?

🔸 Our Bad Programming got us this far - Our successes to date may have come from our flawed principles. But do they serve us forever?

🔸 What is Life Success? - Hard charging endless desire for more, or being unambitious but content?

🔸 What is Happiness? - Is eternal and constant happiness possible? What’s the formula? Does anyone know? 

🔸 The Cheat Codes for Life - Do we know them? Should we want to know them? Should we embrace never knowing the ‘formula’?

🔸 Embracing Challenge, Pain and Darkness - If we cannot erase the possibility of pain, should we instead embrace it?

🔸 Stoicism vs Stupidity - The difference between enjoying meaningful hard work, versus hating the work you do

 

#4 - Is Life Balance Possible?

🔸 Possible to have Every Area in Life perfectly balanced? - Is this nirvana state even possible? Are people claiming to be balanced happy?
