Episode 73 - Warrior Philosophy - E.M. Burlingame

EThis week on the WarriorU Podcast I talk to EM Burlingame. EM is a fascinating guy; he has trained as a Zen Buddhist, he’s an electrical engineer, has a degree in Strategic Studies and is currently completing a PhD in Computational Science and engineering. Now consider this....after 911, he rejoined the US Military at 42 years old and did all the courses to qualify as a USSF Green Beret. At forty two!!!! He is now the founder and the CEO of BioCourt which is a traumatic brain care whole of health initiative, and he was a Co-founder previously of a startup called Sanopic - which we will talk a little about in the episode. This is primarily a Warrior Philosopher conversation. We discuss international relations, the possibility that we are in World War 3, Clausewitz and also the ancient Greek philosophers. Some of the main topics: The human condition and war. Political correctness leading to war as a hard reset back to civility. Brain injuries and how that effects strategic decision making. PTSD and the difference between that and natural combat wear and tear. Oestrogen versus testosterone, or - is it in fact really Alpha versus Beta.

Episode 72 - Ironman - Pete Jacobs

EThis week on the WarriorU Podcast Bram talks to professional triathlete, Pete Jacobs. Pete is a previous winner of the Iron Man World Championship race in Kailua-Kona, Hawaiiwinning the event in 2012. This is made all the more remarkable when you hear that he is not only self-coached, but that Pete also lives with a type of chronic fatigue. Bram and Pete discuss low carbohydrate diets, shifting from low carb to the keto diet and then onto the even more extreme carnivore diet. They also discuss learned patterns and how these effect an athlete’s choices; and in addition to all of this, Pete shares his understanding on what it takes to build mental toughness. Pete isn’t out there in the wilderness with his views on low carb racing either. As a professional triathlete and 2012 World Champion he has access to many and varied brilliant people within the sport and nutrition communities, Dr Tim Noakes and Dr Phil Maffetone; as examples. Hey gang, this is a great episode if you're interested in why some foods make you feel the way they do and if you would like to start a journey of dietary self discovery. Warning though - I'm still confused as to my own personal relationship with food. Bram Connolly.

EIn this episode of The Warrior U Podcast, Bram chats with Ben Horton of Ironside Coffee Co.

He shares the mistakes he made on the way and the lessons they learn as a whole to keep the coffee business running and scaling. QUOTES 18:33to18:49"The troop leader that we had, I'd made real change in the way that I started to develop myself and that was driven by him. And so I was really lucky to spend a couple of years with him." 25:46to26:05"I got attached to Task Force 66 for an operation and the level of preparation blew my mind." 28:08to28:22"One of my mates said to me once, he goes, if all else fails and you can't do anything else, you can't do any other planning, do a rehearsal of concept drill. Just do a ROC drill. And when you finish the ROC drill, then do the ROC drill with radios. And then when you've done it with radios, then go and fight the battle. And he's right." 51:56to52:17"You've got all these projects but what that says to others is like, hey, look. Learn from these and I'll engage with you. I've built this business, I've built that business. These are things you can do. The end of ADF isn't the end. It's just that chapter's done. Reinvent yourself. And I think that's what Ironside Coffee means to me."

Episode 69 - Peak Preparation - Sacha Fulton

EThis week on the WarriorU Podcast Bram talks to Dr Sacha Fulton PhD. Sacha is one of the humblest people you will ever meet, and also one of the most accomplished. In this podcast she teaches us the importance of having a wider skills focus, being a generalist rather than a specialist. Sacha’s undergraduate degree was in human movement studies and her PhD focused on Movement Characteristics of Paralympic swimmers, an area where a wide focus is surely an advantage. Her academic achievements and support to the highly successful Australian Paralympic swimming team is only the tip of the iceberg. Sacha has also completed a marathon, a handful of sprint distance and half distance triathlons and eight ironman triathlons, one of which was the iconic Kona, Hawaiian Ironman. If that isn’t enough to prove her legitimacy as an athlete – she has also completed two solo Rottnest island swims (bear in mind these are twenty-kilometre crossings) and she has also walked the Camino De Santiago, which is the Pilgrims Trail stretching 1700kms through France to Spain. The Camino was the birthplace of her business Peak Preparation – Sacha now uses her depth of academic study, personal experiences and vast network to assist coaches, business and athletes to prepare for whatever their missions might be.

Episode 68 - The Man That Can - Lachie Stuart

EThis week on the WarriorU Podcast Bram Connolly talks to Lachlan Stuart. The man that can. Where to start with Lachie – he’d hate me to call him a life coach, and yet he’s instrumental in so many people making positive changes in their lives from his guidance. He’s been a legit A grade athlete, playing Rugby in France and then turned to drugs in a bid to escape depression before having a life changing moment, being called out for the life track he was on – a forced epiphany, I suppose you’d call it and now he’s sorted himself out. He had to find vulnerability to he is once again a formidable athlete and a top level performance coach. His journey is inspiring, and his podcast and Instagram are motivating countless people. At WarriorU we want you to see yourself as the mission and Lachie is a guy that helps people do just that.

Episode 67 - The Motion Mechanic - Trang Nguyen

EThis week, Bram Connolly talks to Trang Ngyun who is also known as The Motion Mechanic. They discussphysiotherapy,Trang's specialisation, and how it directly relates to The WarriorU focus on human optimisation. Trang’s primary goal for others is high-level athletic development through training and injury management and she utilises her unique skillsets to focus on advanced mindset coaching for the development of both high-achieving athletes and high-achieving human beings.As a triathlete and former soldier, Bram is also in the perfect position to comment on the benefits of physiotherapy and how to apply its lessons to his own fitness journey. QUOTES 16:06to16:20 "At the end of the day, one of the other principles of training is also individuality. So different individuals, different athletes, actually respond better to different forms of training or different types of training." 19:14to19:36 "Using oxygen is the most efficient system because it is a system that lasts the longest. If you want to be out there for a 12 hour Iron Man or even four hour marathon, even a half marathon, that might be more like two hours, you want to be able to use your aerobic system efficiently." 22:31to22:49 "Whether it's your running, your cycling, your swimming, or even in the gym, if you're going too hard every single session, then in the short term you're impeding on subsequent sessions later in that week because you've gone too hard so your body is a little bit fatigued, it still in recovery mode and then that will impede on your other sessions of the week." 37:09to37:27 "If someone's getting injured a lot, then take a look at their sleep because when you're sleeping is when your growth hormone is produced and when its released and that's when your recovery and adaptation occurs. So if you've had a hard gym session, then that night is when your muscles are getting repaired and they're actually adapting to get bigger, get stronger." 53:59to54:11 "Your muscles might be really strong to do days and weeks of cycling but if your tendons can't keep up, then that's also going to be a recipe for potential injuries." HIGHLIGHTS 04:44The Motion Mechanic: What is Specificity? 14:42Fitness and technique: Staying efficient 19:15Using oxygen as a fuel source for strength and conditioning 30:14Calculating work load and tracking sleep 41:18Common myths debunked ---------------------- RESOURCES https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-athletes-garage/id1447335786 http://www.themotionmechanic.com trang@themotionmechanic.com https://www.instagram.com/themotionmechanic

Episode 66 - Entrepreneur - Phil Hayes-St Clair

EThis week Bram talks to serial entrepreneur Phil Hayes-St Clair, CEO & Co-Founder at Drop Bio,a platform that uses systems biology, machine learning, and predictive information from finger-prick blood to better manage health and reduce disease risk.Bram and Phil have been influential in each others' careers, especially with Phil's initiative called Be in Motion. The project lets people send unexpected encouragement to others who have it tough, and also those who are doing great work. Bram is one of Be in Motion's ambassadors. Together they discuss the many different facets of entrepreneurship, including childhood experiences that molded their mindsets to modernizing concepts taught at business schools to navigating around the gig economy of today. The pair also tackle practical issues that affect entrepreneurs in both positive and negative ways, such as inspiration, mentorship, and scaling businesses. QUOTES 15:08to15:20 "I just figure, mate, that we're on the planet for a really, really small amount of time. Like if you look in the context of history, we're here for like a nanosecond. And the question is, how are you going to look back on your last breath?" 19:19to19:31 "It doesn't matter what industry you're in or what your hobbies are, the people that you want to probably surround yourself with are the people that just have a penchant to learn really quickly on whatever their subject matter is--and you want to rest on those people so they can teach you stuff too." 21:19to21:37 "I prefer to think about people who are entrepreneurs, as it were, as founders of businesses and founders of movements. They're the epicenter of where startups start and anyone can be that because the tool set that you need to make that work is, for the most part, free or the marginal cost is zero. And it's just up to you to want to make it happen." 35:22to35:50 "The people who have decided that they are going to use their entrepreneurship programs or their two years or sixteen months or year at business school out of the workforce to build a venture that could end up creating massive value across the board but not for another ten years, they have to put zero in that post MBA box. And as a consequence, that zero ends up saying, well, that school is not producing the right style of person." 40:34to40:51 "Don't spend much to understand it. People spend money to create a solution. You don't have to spend money to learn about problem. The second thing is this, just become an absolute ninja at trying to work out where the incentives lie. As soon as you know that, that's what the predictor of behavior is. And once you've got that, that makes things a whole lot easier."
