This episode we have Laura Jabczenski on to talk about two major topics, health and fitness.  We all talk about how the education and health care systems are broken, and Laura explains what she wants to (or would) do differently.  I tell the story about how I healed my broken hand in 1/2 the expected time.  We give really simple health advice can make a huge impact, takes little effort, and you probably haven’t thought about it before (hint: sleep in complete darkness).  Then Ryan and I try to deconstruct Laura’s athletic process, which is extremely insightful, and we have been applying (successfully) for our own athletic goals.  If you want to be more “physically intelligent”, take some notes on the second half.

Our Homework:

We all climb a new level we’ve never climbed before:

We all land a trampoline trick we’ve never landed before:

I did a 540 backflip and and 540 frontflip, Laura did a standing backflip, Ryan climbed a new wall.  I’ll update this post with my bouldering course when the Bloc opens up again (it’s closed for a competition right now).

Same day, different tricks #trampoline

Your Homework:

Learn a new movement, whether it is a dance move, a flip, a handstand, or a skateboard trick, learn a new movement you’ve never tried before.

How I healed my bone in 1/2 the normal time:

Slow Carb Diet (easy on the beans), >4 tablespoons of Grassfed Butter, >4 tablespoons of coconut oil a day, walked for an hour each day, skated almost everyday, went to the gym three times a week (2 sets of pull ups, and 2 sets of deadlifts, nothing more), ate as much food as I could stomach, slept 9 hours a nice in a pitch black room.

My disgusting kickflips:

3 Piece with the boys. #rocketflip #nosegrind #heelflip #skateboardingisfun
