With Rebel Performance Radio having produced well over 100 episodes along with a backlog of truly extraordinary guests, it's about that time to throw it back to an episode with one of my favorite humans on the planet, Andrew Triana, the co-founder of The Performance Vibe and Allostatic Labs.
Whether you're new here and missed this episode, or perhaps you've been listening in with us for some time now and could use a refresh, this is a phenomenal episode, and I guarantee this flashback will not disappoint.
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.
