TriSpecific | Ironman Triathlon Coaching Podcast

Today Pete and I had the opportunity to speak with founder of the Marc Pro EMS device Ryan Heaney. We have used and played with various EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) devices before but only came across the Marc Pro unit after speaking with Kelly Starrett.

We got to delve into the science and how the devices we see on the market differ in the outcomes achieved. We all know that recovery is king to our ultimate performances. The quicker one can recover, the quicker they can train hard again and adapt to the stimulus.

What we love is the simplicity and its time efficiency. Pete and I are definitely adding this to our recovery to help performance tool box.

In Today's Episode We Discuss:

  • No, it’s not going to give you 6 pack abs ;-)
  • The 4 steps of recovery
  • The importance of shifting the fluid
  • Not just any EMS - when and how to use the Marc Pro
  • Conditioning versus recovery
  • Recovery - how to make the most of the hard work
  • For the 40+’s - don’t slow down, just recover better

Today I get to speak with two seriously awesome individuals that are hell bent on making the world a better place. These two definitely play at levels way way above average and I for one am seriously grateful for it.

We speak on many things today to ultimately create a life of wild(e) performance. Which by the way is available to each and everyone of us. Yes it takes work, yes you’ll need to change things and it won’t always be easy.. But it will be worth it.

Today Pete and I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with Dr Amanda Stevens and we go deep into the challenges Amanda has faced along her journey of being an elite triathlete. First her bids to become an Olympian and how her health was for all intensive purposes destroyed and how the struggles continued to multiply when going long. Then we see just how tough and positive Amanda is to stay the course, work it out and get her health back and she is crushing it at races again. Truly inspiring.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss:

  • How she fixed herself
  • Not giving up on finding an answer
  • The difference between fitness & health and the importance of building a healthy foundation
  • Actually managing stress
  • How to change habits for good
  • Fine tuning health with food choices
  • No stone left unturned
  • What inspires Amanda

Today Pete and I got the privilege to speak with one of the best movement specialists around. Kelly Starrett is a coach, physical therapist, author, speaker, and has revolutionized how athletes think about human movement and athletic performance. 

More than that Kelly is a whole lot of fun to talk too.. Drops a lot of f-bombs in this interview (so beware, though we are all adults here...) but the knowledge bombs dropped are immense and should have you thinking and wanting to relearn how to move optimally. We also go into many of what Kelly calls basic adaptation errors. Us triathletes are guilty at thinking it's all about continual development of the engine ... However we can never truly build a great engine when not only is the chassis is bent but we sabotage ourselves with simple daily errors that stop us adapting to the stimulus we present the body. 

Stop everything and lets get your full attention. Because you are worth it. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss:

 

  • Who is Kelly Starrett?
  • Why a conversation can only be started when we know where you are starting from.
  • The need to become more self aware.
  • Taking responsibility for your mobility.
  • The conversation on quality.
  • Understanding dysfunction.
  • Organising your spine.
  • Why our races are the tests of our robustness.
  • The holes in our being.
  • The four horseman and why they’re important.
  • The questions you need to ask when traveling to races.
  • Standing VS sitting.
  • Why you should do yoga.
  • What races are truly about.
  • And more knowledge bombs.
