Andrew Triana, a co-founder of The Performance Vibe and Allostatic Labs and world champion of vibing, joins the show today to talk about developing freaky humans. We kick things off getting into Andrew’s background and talk about how he found the sport of Strongman and why he fell in love with it. A strong theme throughout the episode is this notion of extremes bringing balance, and our conversation definitely speaks to that. One second we’ll be jamming on detailed cell physiology, and then the next we get into phenomenology and the importance of subjective experience.

Topics covered include Strongman, creatine, hypoxia, phenomenology, being authentically productive, hypertrophy, protein pathways, and all sorts of other goodies. If you’re an athlete or coach looking to up your game, then this episode is definitely for you. There's no chance you don't walk away with at least one way to upgrade your tactics, models, and thought processes.
