Today is all about value. The value you place in not only your goals and ambitions, but the value place in the process to get there. We live in the era of “now” - everyone wants  something now(!) and most of the time they want to do it for “free” - not always in the monetary sense, but in the form of minimal commitment.

This is a demanding and sport and you have to be prepared to commit.

We also spend time breaking down the components of Todd Herman’s episode from last week - so go back and listen to that first if you haven’t already.

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • Why investing in your performance is important
  • Learning to invest in yourself, the right way
  • Why free = zero value to you
  • What free is going to cost you in the long run
  • The dangers of an exit strategy
  • The truth
  • Making the right decisions
  • Amateurs thinking like professionals
  • Asking yourself the right questions
  • Using mindset to shape your lens
  • Creating your alter ego in detail

Welcome to 2016! This is going to be an amazing year! And we start it off with a bang today!

Today we speak with Bob Murray from Flex Pharma on an extremely important issue: Cramping. Everyone knows that cramping sucks. We get them racing , we get them training, we get them lying in bed at night. And until now, there have only been anecdotal solutions to manage your cramping. Both of us have had success with magnesium, to an extent, but we couldn't find an answer as to why.... Bob is here to tell us about a new sports drink that is going to change how we deal with cramps - forever. This isn't a marketing pitch - this is getting into the science of cramping and helping you understand and manage your cramps.

In today's episode we discuss:

  • A story of two sea-kayaking neuroscientists and how they cracked the code
  • Why we cramp
  • Different types of cramps
  • What we know and don't know about cramping
  • Cramp triggers
  • How "It's the Nerve" works
  • Getting spicy
  • Mouth --> Brain --> Muscle
  • Mouth rinsing
  • Making your neuromuscular system more awesome
  • It's the Nerve and performance
  • When you can get your dirty little hands on the drink
