Wow the 250th episode… and it’s one that can definitely help your performances. The unfortunate truth is we all get niggles and injuries that aren’t fun. They kill consistency (which kills performance) and they can cause a helluva lot of frustration which is a massive killjoy.

The problem with running is we just go out and do it. No though other than one foot in front of the other. But where are we starting from? Do we wave muscles that are unplugged? What sort of movement blocks do we have?

Well, Jay Dicharry, one of America’s leading physical therapists is the man that elites go to because of his success with diagnosing and rebuilding injured endurance athletes.

He has been able to blend the fields of clinical practice and engineering to better understand and eliminate the cause of overuse injuries in endurance athletes. His unique approach works outside of the traditional model of therapy to correct imbalances before they affect performance.

Enjoy my conversation with Jay Dicharry.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • The cadence myth
  • Move better before running better
  • Mobility and Stability
  • Fixing blocked areas
  • Unplugged Muscles
  • Neural plasticity
  • Everyone lands in front of COG
  • Deliberate practice
  • Precision movements
  • Fitting in the rewiring and performance sessions into your weekly schedule
  • Software v hardware problems and knowing whats what.
  • Being honest where you are
  • The chassis is important too
  • Cross training versus complementary training
  • Defining posture
  • Finding your balance point
  • Does it matter where you land
  • And so much more.

Ritch Viola is the founder of Every Man Jack, a company that produces a complete line of grooming products for men. In his short 10 odd years as an age group athlete he has been able to accomplish so much, like winning his AG in Kona and 70.3 worlds in the same year but also crush it as a businessman (he gives us some great pointers), husband, dad and for those racing in North America, you have likely seen very fast age groupers in the EMJ kits.

Ritch formed his own team in 2011 to help promote his business, but discovered so much more about how he could contribute to the triathlon community. Team Every Man Jack has grown into one of the most recognizable outfits in the sport and currently boasts a roster of 75 athletes.

I wanted Ritch on because he is just that. A very busy man that gets it done. He has been deliberate about setting up his life - something we go into.

Lots of goodies in this conversation. And …. Ritch has been kind enough to set us up with a 25% discount over at everymanjack.com. This offer is only good to Feb 16th - so get in on some excellent products that care about you and nature.

I love seeing products that don’t have the crap in them. So boys get yourself some goods or ladies buy your man some. Use the coupon code TRISPECIFIC and get 25% off (excludes Truckers and accessories)

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • That Kona swim start
  • The roll on effect of that first committed decision
  • Knowing thyself is very important
  • The benefits of being overcommitted
  • A typical day in the life
  • 3 key attributes to Ritch’s success
  • Staying in the moments
  • The biggest challenge in racing
  • Losing Meredith
  • What Ritch does when unmotivated or overwhelmed
  • Setting realistic goals
  • Your path
  • Team EMJ
  • And so much more.

Ok this week I was meant to bring you my conversations with a successful entrepreneur, businessman, AG Ironman and 70.3 World champion but we had some connectivity challenges. The editing just wasn’t going to cut it so we have rescheduled that for next week.

So… You have me again, maybe with a little ranting only done with love because I rather have all of us rise up, fight the good fight and achieve great things. So this one's an off the cuff episode of some of the things I see too much of (things that I’ve done) and things that just are screwing you over when it comes to bring out performances that are within you.

Enjoy.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:

  • It's not about being smarter it's about making less stupid decisions
  • Common nutrition mistakes
  • Race pacing
  • Doing efforts correctly
  • On finding Mojo
  • Why the fight
  • Some additions to last weeks GRIT episode
