Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control there is no new episode this week, but to keep you moving until the show returns next week, I have provided links to two brand new podcast interviews I did for other shows with over 90 minutes of free content to help you become more active, energized, and creative at your workstations.

I hope you find these interviews helpful and inspirational, and I appreciate your patience and understanding. I'll see you next week.

By now it's no secret that sitting is bad for you, but after listening to today's episode you may get a clearer picture of how dangerous it really can be. More importantly, you might learn some really cool new ways to do something about it if you live a dominantly sedentary lifestyle.

In this episode I chat with Ryan Fiorenzi, a black belt in Kung Fu and a 4th degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (the first BJJ black belt in the state of Michigan). In addition to his martial arts experience, Ryan also founded the website called startstanding.org that has a very similar mission to my own: To teach people how dangerous being sedentary all long is, and then provide you the tools to do something about it.

Several years ago Ryan suffered a back injury, and while spending years dealing with debilitating pain, he discovered it wasn't so much the injury as it was his sedentary lifestyle outside of martial arts that was causing all of his pain. You'll learn all about his discoveries and how you can apply them to your own life.

  • Learning to manage chronic pain and finding proper chiropractic help

Guest Bio:

Ryan Fiorenzi has been training in the martial arts since he was young, has a black belt in Kung Fu and a 4th degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. After sustaining a back injury training in Judo, he suffered with back pain for over 8 years. After a lot of research and experimentation, he's now pain free, which lead him to create startstanding.org.

It's no secret: Sitting all day just plain sucks, but when working an intensely creative job for long hours, what other options do you have? The good news is there are now TONS of options, and if you're not sure where to start, this episode is your first step.

If you have any interest in leveling up your energy, your focus, your mental stamina (and possibly even saving your life), you'll want to listen to this conversation with my guest Dr. Kelly Starrett, author of the New York Times bestseller ‘Becoming a Supple Leopard,' which has revolutionized how coaches, athletes, and everyday humans approach movement and athletic performance. He is also author of the book 'Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World,' as well as the co-founder of San Francisco Crossfit and MobilityWOD.com where he shares his innovative approach to movement, mechanics, and mobility. He works with elite Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, as well as players from the NFL, NHL, NBA, and Major League Baseball.

To put it simply, Kelly is as badass as it gets, and I consider one of my greater accomplishments in life getting this guy in front of a mic to chat with me for an hour (even if his wife did choose to do the dishes in the background for a few minutes).

In this episode we talk about Kelly’s book Deskbound and really dig deep into the science behind what’s happening to our bodies when we sit for too long, but more importantly we talk about ways you can change your environment to become more active and create what he calls a ‘movement rich space.’ If you have any interest in escaping your desk chair, this episode is the place to start.
