Health and Wellness with No BS | Ari Gronich


[00:00:00] David Dowlen: Are you tired of standing still? Do you feel like you are losing more ground than you're gaining and your health and your fitness and just the general way you feel about your life? 75% of Americans think that their diet is healthy. Despite a growing obesity rate, 42.4% only 22.5% of Americans exercise.

[00:00:21] Now, all this adds up to a lot of health issues that could be absolutely avoided and are completely preventable today. My special guest is a performance therapist that has worked with celebrities, highest level athletes, medalist, gold medalist, and more guys. My name is Brent, and this is the foul man podcast your home for all things, man, husband and father.

[00:00:43] And let's get into it. Be better tomorrow because of what you do today. Guys walk on the podcast today. I have Ari Granich today and he is joining us to help you take charge of your health and take some of the mystery out of all of this, because you can get lost in a sea of all. About health and wellness.

[00:01:01] So are you welcome to the podcast today?

[00:01:04] Ari Gronich: Awesome. Thank you for having me, Brent. I appreciate it.

[00:01:07] David Dowlen: Now, Ari, you're an author, a trainer, a sports therapist. I saw you have your own Nazism certification. Yes. People can get that. That's incredible. I I'm a bit of a fitness, enthusiasm enthusiast, so I recognize Nazism and, uh, they're an incredible group as far as their certifications.

[00:01:27] So that's amazing. And you're a rehab specialist. You work with people rehabbing injuries, uh, to the elite level athletes, right?

[00:01:37] Ari Gronich: Right. Yeah. So I spent 27 years basically taking, um, injured athletes from injuries to gold medals, world championships, uh, working with a list, you know, actors and actresses, helping them on set with whatever they roll.

[00:01:52] They needed to play. Basically the idea was getting somebody from their beginning. Point, which typically was at some level of injury to where they wanted to go, which at some level was competition and win. Right. That's kind of what I specialized in for 27 years is helping with performance.

[00:02:14] David Dowlen: All right. Now I could go on and on.

[00:02:17] Cause I read through all of your accolades and, uh, I'm a crappy podcast host. I don't do that because most people don't understand what any of those things are. So what I'd love for you to do is tell our audience today, who is Ari Granich? What do they need to know about you today?

[00:02:34] Ari Gronich: Yeah, so today, so today I'm 27 years as a sports and injury therapist, uh, functional medicine consultants.

[00:02:43] So 27 years in my field, I'm also a dad of a seven year old stepfather to two 20 year olds. I am a consultant. I'm a podcaster, I'm a friend. So yeah, I'm all kinds of things.

[00:03:02] David Dowlen: And you're also, as you said, a podcast host of the, create a new tomorrow podcasts, you want to tell us a little bit about what your podcast is about.

[00:03:13] Ari Gronich: Yeah. How do we create a new tomorrow today? How do we activate our vision for a better world? What are the steps that it's going to take to get there? What are the tips and tricks? What are the things that are stopping us in the barriers and break that are stopping us from doing the things that we know are in our own?

[00:03:30] Self-interest, that's what the show's about.

[00:03:35] David Dowlen: And that is a lot of things. Let's face. It we're our own worst enemies. Most of the time the numbers are appalling when it comes to general health. And now I I'm equal opportunity. Men and women both make bad choices, but why do you think. That we all struggle with living healthier lives.

[00:03:58] Ari Gronich: Um, well, okay, so you want to go down to the macro level or the micro level, because there's so many different ways I can, I could approach that subject from, we're not taught it. Our, our, you know, world is not built for it anymore. It used to be, it's not anymore. We're built for cars. We're built for taking transportation versus walking versus, you know, actively riding a bicycle somewhere.

[00:04:24] Um, so our, our societies have shifted even in the, just the, the 40 years since I was a kid where I could ride my bicycle everywhere. And anywhere at age 5, 6, 7, all my parents said was come home before dark. Right. And nowadays, like, I wouldn't let my kid do that my seven year old do that because there's so many possibilities of possibility out there.

[00:04:49] Right. So. Our world has shifted from a very, doing active society to a very sedentary lifestyle. And therefore we need things like gyms to go to because we're not doing things in life naturally to get healthy. Um, so yeah, there's multi-facets to all of this, I could go through why we're being poisoned and why our food and water is making us inflamed and sick and nervous and cancerous and all those things.

[00:05:22] So we could go,

[00:05:23] David Dowlen: oh no, you know what, that, that's all your topic as far as I'm concerned. Um, I am not a, you'll not find that I am a fan of the modern healthcare system. Uh, I try and balance my life somewhat between healthier choices, which I don't always see that because I like ice cream. Um, and you know, just some common sense.

[00:05:48] Plus I'll look into like natural remedies and stuff like that. Uh, because I, I just, I, I don't believe in the way the higher health care system is set up all the pills, all the chemicals, all the drugs they want to push. I'm not sure that our systems were made for that.

[00:06:06] Ari Gronich: So they weren't. So, so let's just look at it this way.

[00:06:10] So all medicine, all drugs, all things are poison, right? So either we're killing the bad stuff and leaving our good cells somehow, or we're killing the bad stuff and killing our good cells somehow, most likely that's the, that's the case. Cause it's poison. That's what, that's what a drug is. That's what medicine is in general.

[00:06:31] It's designed to kill things, not designed to build things up. And so food nutrition, those are things that are designed to build. Things up. So if all you're doing is trying to kill stuff, right? Unnaturally B via a drug via something that you're putting into your system, that's, you know, a drug to kill you, kill something, then you're not doing the natural thing, which is feeding your body, the stuff that allows your body to do its own natural killing of stuff.

[00:07:08] That's invading it. Right. And so we we've, we've kind of like taken the cart before the horse, you know, we're like, we're, we're, we're literally, I V dripping water down the horses throat versus taking them even to the river versus teaching the re you know, the horse, how to, how to swim. So we've, we've kinda done a bass ackwards thing and decided that nobody is actually capable of doing anything themselves.

[00:07:36] So we must do it for them.

[00:07:39] David Dowlen: Well, you know, we're an instant gratification society. That's why we have the nonsense five minute abs all that crap. That's why this stuff sells on TV and you all, everybody, everybody is smart enough to know that's a stupid idea that doesn't actually work, but yet people drop how, I mean, it's a billion dollar industry for instant fixes, right?

[00:08:02] Melt that body fat off drink our nasty concoction three times a day at, you know, half your life savings and you will be skinny and beautiful.

[00:08:14] Ari Gronich: Right? Well, so we just look at the results, right? How's that working out for us? Look at the numbers. Look at the results. What did you say? 42, something percent OB currently, right?

[00:08:28] 22 point something percent of people work out. I mean, we look at the results. Is the society living and the way we imagined it to be, I mean, I could speak for me, but I was a kid and I was watching the Jetsons and we've already passed the age of the Jetsons. So it hasn't looked the way that we envisioned it to be.

[00:08:54] Right. I look at the world, I go, okay. So why did we continue to build the fifties suburbs when we were building new construction versus building two thousands, 2020s and beyond right. Making our products more eco-friendly more modular so we can shift them out and change them at well, you know, like Legos.

[00:09:19] I mean, these are things that allow us to move with technology faster versus be stuck in the past. So why is it that we're making decisions for our health. That lead us down a path where we're not going to be able to do anything, but the sedentary making phone calls where we don't even have to pick up the phone and work, cause it'll be embedded in our skulls.

[00:09:42] And we just ordered delivery and sit on our virtual reality. And you know, eventually that kind of looks like the matrix. Doesn't it?

[00:09:52] David Dowlen: Uh, I laugh about that all the time, man. It's like, oh look, you're now part of the simulation. I mean, when was the last time I was, we were talking about the doctors trying to think when's the last time the doctor tried to give me anything to put in my mouth.

[00:10:07] There was actually beneficial, right? It's antibiotics, like you said, and that kills indiscriminately. I will not take those most. Right. It's painkillers and antidepressants. Right? Those are, those are what people try and shove down your throat all the

[00:10:25] Ari Gronich: time. Yeah. That, uh, you know, I mean the biggest anti-cholesterol medication Lipitor is the number one prescribed medication on the planet, leopard tour, uh, world health organization.

[00:10:37] I think it was in 2000. And I don't know, it was a long time ago, had 0% correlation between, uh, women and heart disease and cholesterol, uh, you know, like zero correlation, but Lipitor cholesterol, medication number one thing yet. We'll feed everybody sea salt, right? Iodized salt on, on every table in America.

[00:11:01] And restaurants is iodized salt. Oh yeah. Cholesterol. I'll just give you a little, a little, uh, your audience, a little heads up. Okay. Table salt is about 30 something percent. Glass silica. Okay. Glass glasses sharp. When you eat glass, it cuts things like your arteries. Okay. And when your arteries get cut by this glass that you're eating, all of a sudden your cholesterol goes in there and it says I'm going to repair this area because that's what cholesterol does it.

[00:11:37] Repairs cuts inside your body. So it goes in there to repair the cuts. Now you keep eating that salt and you keep cutting those arteries. The cholesterol is going to build up in those areas. Okay? So here's the key. Stop eating this, this table, salt, stop eating the table. Salt, your stop, eating the glass.

[00:11:59] That's cutting your arteries. That's causing your cholesterol to want to come and fix the area there on the other side. Type three diabetes. They're calling it, which is Alzheimer's and dementia. That's plaque in your brain cholesterol in your brain, going over to repair inflammatory responses that are in your brain.

[00:12:24] So if your brain is inflamed, because you're doing something or eating something, that's breaking the blood-brain barrier, causing inflammation of your head, losing focus, losing all those things. Now, all of a sudden flack comes there to protect your brain. Yes, you're going to lose some memory. So what do you do if you're having dementia, you stop eating the sugars, you stop eating the things that are breaking, that blood-brain barrier causing inflammation of your brain.

[00:12:52] And then you're going to stop the, the cry of dementia and the pull of it going on into the feature. So those are two really big things that doctors do. A lot of prescribing for diabetes eventually becomes dementia and Alzheimer's, and. Cholesterol, those things are God, I wish I could go on Ignacio.

[00:13:19] David Dowlen: Here's an important question for me. Cause I'm a salt guy. I love salt. So is it specifically like table salt, ares, like the, all the fancy pink sea salts and crap like that they come up with now? Is that any better? Yeah. So,

[00:13:33] Ari Gronich: so Himalayan salt. Is that pink? Salt? The Himalayan salt. Yeah, I have that. Okay. So that is actual rock.

[00:13:44] It's not like glass in there, you know, they're not, it's just, the rock is actual salt, crystal salt crystal. Okay. So, um, I believe Celtic Cecil. Um, some of the sea salt, even nowadays has been so over manufactured, some of the Celtic sea salts are good. Um, there's like celery salts, there's, uh, coconut aminos, which are really good.

[00:14:08] And those have a salty kind of kick to them. So there's other alternatives and things that you can do in order to get your salt craving, but the iodized table salt that's got mostly, you know, are 30 something percent silica.

[00:14:26] David Dowlen: Oh my goodness. I won't say the name of the little girl with the umbrella, but breaking my heart, man.

[00:14:34] I, yeah, I, I, I dunno if I learned it from my grandmother, man, she salted the crap out of everything, but she lived with us up until I was in my twenties when she passed away. So I,

[00:14:45] Ari Gronich: well, and just think about it this way. As, as you get older, your taste buds go, so you have to add more salt. So if you're eating a grandmother's dose of.

[00:14:53] At a, at an age where your taste buds are still developing and you got a lot of repair work to do in those tastes buds. Right? A lot of not eating of things. Like I can't drink a soda even with like, if I fill that much of it with water and that much of it was soda. I can't drink the soda. It's too sweet.

[00:15:16] It can't do it. Right. Because I don't mind. Yeah. Even juices nowadays. I have to cut it with like 90% water just because it's so ultra sweet. I will

[00:15:28] David Dowlen: actually not generally feed my kids straight juice just because they dumped so much sugar into that at this point. Um, I work with a youth event that we call it.

[00:15:39] It's a church or youth rally. Right. It's a big church event and we have a couple of hundred kids from the region and it's called apple cider press. Cause it started on an old orchard where some kids brought their friends home from college. And they set up the old wooden cider presses and they press cider wall.

[00:15:59] His dad talked about God, right? And that, I mean, this is 40 years later. We're still doing this event with hundreds of kids, but we actually press fresh shied at cider. As part of the event, we have several orchardists who bring in apples for us. And once you've had like, actually fresh cider compared to apple to use, you're just like, and it's still super sweet, but at least it's the, the fruit, right.

[00:16:26] It's not like, oh, okay, here's the first juice now we're add things.

[00:16:30] Ari Gronich: Uh, so on that sweet level, let me, let me just say 50 years ago, the sweet level, the sugar content of that apple let's let's imagine we have a green apple in front of us. Okay. That was the sugar content of most sugar, sugar, sugary apples, 50 years ago.

[00:16:52] Right. So you'd actually have to have about 10 apples to equal one apples sugar now 50 years ago. Oh yeah, no, we have, honey, you'd have to have a, I think it's seven or eight oranges to equal one from the past. You have to have, uh, in, in like nutritive quality in broccoli, for instance, you'd have to have five servings of broccoli to equal one from 50 years ago.

[00:17:18] So it's almost impossible to eat our way healthy these days. We have to supplement because our food just doesn't have the nutrients available to it.

Check out our new Live show every Monday on YouTube! Come be a part of the discussion!

[00:17:28] David Dowlen: I actually live in a massive farming area. That's uh, that is the big, other than what has been here the last 15 years, this is a farming community. We actually export more potatoes out of my county than Idaho does.

[00:17:44] Uh, some of the best asparagus you'll ever have actually comes out of this valley, but. All

[00:17:50] Ari Gronich: right. I want a pipeline shipment directly to Florida from you.

[00:17:54] David Dowlen: Well, well, we'll trade you across, get some good stuff coming out of Florida. We actually even have peaches here.

[00:18:00] Ari Gronich: Lorena it's locally grown and locally sprayed.

[00:18:06] David Dowlen: Yeah. Mass farming has a definitely messed with the quality of our food. And I mean, but that's, so that is our problem we're running into right. Is like you say, we almost can't eat our way out of it.

[00:18:17] Ari Gronich: Now. It's almost impossible with commercial farming to eat our way out of it. We have to go back to individual farming, community farming, uh, co-op farming where like, you know, in areas that it's not a big farm town where they start a hydroponic farm, that is a co-op for, you know, the neighborhood or whatever.

[00:18:39] I mean, there there's all kinds of solutions to. This problem of lack of nutrients, but we have to let the soil rest. We have to re flood the lands a little bit from high to low in order to get those lands that have been over agriculture allies to get back to a nutrient dense quality. Cause right now we've taken off the top soil of almost all pretty much farmland.

[00:19:05] And so the only thing we could do is really hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, and start getting more modern methods of, uh, of agriculture going while doing that in a local way. Not a, a massive big manufacturing way. Yeah.

[00:19:23] David Dowlen: I, I couldn't, I can barely grow weeds, but I have learned a few things living out here in farmland and, uh, I I'm always amazed.

[00:19:31] Like they ha because they have to rotate crops on fields. Right. I knew, I didn't know anything about that. And I I'm, I'm a meat cutter guy. I w I was, uh, my first job was on an actual functioning cattle ranch. And so, you know, we grew hay for our cows, but that's about it. Right? All I did was move water gates.

[00:19:50] My, my boss did everything else, but Kevin out here watching these farmers are like, oh, we're growing this. And the next year I'm like, so how's that going? Oh, we don't grow that this year. We will grow this this year. And so that that's been explained to me some, but I know that's supplementing. That's doing what they can using one product to try and re and rich the soil a different way,

[00:20:12] Ari Gronich: rotating the land, rotating the soil, rotating the ingredients.

[00:20:16] You know, the other thing is like we, we got away for it. We started pesticide, ING, everything in big ag. And instead of what we used to do, farmers actually know this stuff like real farmers, they know this, there are plants that you can plant next to your crops that will stop the bugs, who would normally eat your crops from eating them.

[00:20:36] And so therefore you could kind of avoid. Like a massive amount of those pesticides just by planting the plants that the other insects go away from right near that. So there, there are so many ways to, to, uh, fix the system if people are willing to. So my question to people with the create a new tomorrow podcast is what are you willing to do?

[00:21:01] How are you willing to activate your vision for a better world? What questions are you asking yourself? That's going to move you forward in your life versus keep you stuck. And, uh, from what you and I were talking about earlier, you know, a lot of the listeners, you said, have weight issues, have health concerns.

[00:21:22] And it's really hard to be a human being on this planet, especially a father and a businessman and somebody who's a contributing member to the world. When you feel like shit all the time, right? I'm really difficult.

[00:21:38] David Dowlen: There there's a overwhelming, you know, everybody always said that, uh, the information age was going to be great.

[00:21:44] Right. And, and we were ignorant because there was a lack of resource knowledge, right? We didn't have knowledge of age available to us. I actually had a sweet, older lady from my church post on her Facebook feed. That same question is like, you know, the claim that we're ignorant because of a lack of knowledge has, has lost all ground.

[00:22:04] At this point, you know, there, there's never been a more advantageous time if you want to learn something new than there is right now, but now we've gone to the far swing on that. Right? So you go online and try and figure out, well, you know, we were talking about diets, right? Keto, diet payload. I carnivore diet, which diet do you choose?

[00:22:23] Because there's now a bizillion diets. Everybody's sewing a new one. And so, you know, Joe plumber down the street is, is looking and going well. I should probably do something about the weight and so that where, where do we go? We go to Google, right? Right.

[00:22:40] Ari Gronich: Because Dr. Google, Dr. Google sucks. So here's, uh, in functional medicine, we have a saying test don't guess test, test, test, don't guess.

[00:22:53] So we don't want to throw darts on a dark board. And so since everybody's different and we have new technology, like let's use Western medicine from what it's good at, which is new technology. So we could test your DNA. We can actually find out your, through your blood, what's going on in your, in your system, how much nutrients you have, how much you needing, what, which ones, you know, how you like it best absorbed, you know, like we can find out all kinds of information.

[00:23:21] Now, the problem is that the people who have been finding out this information are only incentivized to treat the information that. They're not incentivized to turn the information into an optimal reading, right. To say, okay, what is the best outcome for this person? And how can we get there? And what's the plan that we're going to implement in order to get there.

[00:23:49] Right. So we don't, we don't have that piece. And that's the piece that's missing in life. In general. It's stepping back from the world. That's coming at us so fast, right. Putting up like a little guard for a second and saying, okay, I'm going to breathe. And like, you're looking out on the world through an observing station and you're saying, okay, what?

[00:24:20] What's real, what's real. Okay. I'm this much overweight. I don't feel good. I have too much overwhelmed at Bubba. What's the facts, no emotional attachment to the facts. Just what's the facts. Where is it that I am next question. Where do I want to go? If I could have any having any, which way I want it. If, if the world just would mold itself like clay to my wishes and desires, how would I, what, what would that look like?

[00:24:59] What would it feel like as detailed, as like intricate as much emotional feel to it as possible? How's the wind look, what's the weather like w who's the person you're looking at all the details, right? Next

[00:25:19] what's in the way of these two things being in the same place. Where I'm am and where I want to be. What's what's in the way could be a whole bunch of actions that you need to take could be a whole bunch of fear and barriers and traumas and things that you have to break through. But it's very simple right there.

[00:25:46] There's no, there's not, not a lot of complexity tort to this, to this process. It's a very simple process. The only thing that makes this process, the process that the 99.9% of people complain about the 1% or 0.1% of people, right? There's one difference. And that is that the 0.1% or the 1% of those people act.

[00:26:23] Act reassess, keep acting, keep acting, keep acting. And the 99% keep planning. Keep wishing, keep wanting, keep waiting, keep hoping, keep desiring,

[00:26:43] David Dowlen: sadly and horribly. True guys. Hey, we're going to roll to our sponsor. Have you right back with Ari Granich today's episode is brought to you by manly Monday, our new live stream show happening every Monday on the fallible man, YouTube channel, come join us and be part of communities. We discuss all things, man, husband and father in real time.

[00:27:04] Also, you can find us everywhere at the fallible man and without fail guys, head over to our website, and you can find everything we do and everywhere we're at always Be sure to check out manly Monday guys. And we're back with Ari Granich. Ari is an expert in so many things in sports nutrition that he is actually got a who's who client list, but we're not going to talk about that.

[00:27:38] His performance therapists and guys, we're getting really real about nutrition and many other things today. So if you miss the first part of the podcast, you need to go back and catch the rest of that. Are you brought up one of the things we have the ability to do that they haven't well, that we don't do, right?

[00:27:57] Is we have the ability to test, test, and test and find out what our bodies actually need and what we needed to fix in our. Um, are you familiar with sand efforting? Right. So may bodybuilder power lifter then pretty well in YouTube to apparently, um, one of the things I know he advocates for is doing regular blood tests to check.

[00:28:18] I know he had a case for like vitamin D levels and some other balances. Right. Is that a intelligent choice for the average person? Is that something that we should all start thinking about?

[00:28:31] Ari Gronich: Yeah, so, so here's the thing. Um, once you figure out where you are and where you want to go, right. That's going to determine the path to get there, right?

[00:28:44] So if let's say you want to be, um, a American ninja warrior, you got a different path than somebody who say, wants to be able to get out of their car. At the back of the parking lot and walk the entire way through the store without having to get on a cart. Okay. Very different path to those two destinations.

[00:29:12] And so the key with testing and questioning is that you want to get really, really clear on all the details of where somebody's at, regardless of who they are and what they want to do. Everybody has a starting point and an end point that they want. And once that end point has gotten that's their new starting point.

[00:29:32] So you kind of got to know that too, if we get there, what then? Right. So you're constantly getting people incentivized and ticked into this, this momentum versus this place of like all where I'm at is not, uh, you know, and then I'm not going to do because, uh, my emotional tie to it. So. I like to, to tell people like, it's not, it's not rote.

[00:30:03] It's, it's very, very individualized, you know, for you. I'm not gonna tell you if you don't want to be running a marathon to go out and run 10 miles a day.

[00:30:16] David Dowlen: Well, thank you for that.

[00:30:17] Ari Gronich: Okay. That's not what I'm going to do. I'm not going to tell you if, you know, if you want to be a sprinter to go out and run 10 miles a day, either.

[00:30:28] Right. Very different muscles have to make developed for those kinds of things. And so you want to have the testing so that you know exactly where you're going and what you're doing so that you're not making mistakes. Right. And by mistakes, I mean, taking time that you could be taking, getting progress done.

[00:30:51] Right. So I have a belief system that we always want progress. And that the slower we go, the faster we'll get there. It's the turtle and the Hare, the slower we go, the faster we'll get there. So if we want results and the results that we want is a strong foundation. And here's the results that I always want.

[00:31:11] If I, if I'm going to be really honest with you, I don't care about shape. I never have. I care about my body being my bitch. This is a, it's a very crass way of saying it. But if I say jump, I want my body to say how high I don't care. Anything else. I want it to function. When I tell it to function. If somebody is chasing me like a big ass tiger, I want to be able to run and go up a tree immediately and not have to worry about if my body's going to be able to handle that, or if I'm going to throw my back out.

[00:31:47] Okay. So I want my body to be my best. And it by saying it that way I go, okay. So what does that mean? I want to train it from the foundation up. Every single weakness that I could possibly find is the first place I go. The biggest weakest weaknesses is the first place you go to strengthen. Those are usually in the joints and the tendons and ligaments.

[00:32:16] That's the boring stuff. That's the stuff that takes so much just to get through one rep, cause you're doing it so low. So as to train all the muscle fibers and all the stabilizers and all the things that have to move, and you're getting those joints stronger because you're going slow and you're, you know, ah, very slow back the other way too.

[00:32:44] So,

[00:32:44] David Dowlen: you know, like tempo reps are evil,

[00:32:47] Ari Gronich: right? This is, this is like, this is the evil. Okay, but the evil, let's say you took one year of just doing evil and you started out with like at evil, you know, let's say 150 pounds can barely do a pull up after one year. How many pull-ups you think you got? If, if you were consistent, if you had a plan, right?

[00:33:16] I mean, that's just, all I'm saying is like it, you can drastically change the course of your life by barely doing anything every single day.

[00:33:28] David Dowlen: Are you pointing out that the difference between a lot of people in their successes, people who find success with stuff, act, act, act, act. I think you, you made a good point with a lot of people don't know what to do next.

[00:33:45] Right? What happens when you get to that first? Right. I I've run into a lot of people that, you know, they're like, oh, I'm going to achieve this goal. And then they do, and then it's like deer in headlights. Well, what's now

[00:34:02] Ari Gronich: what's what's and that's why I asked midway. Yeah. That's why I asked that question midway through.

[00:34:07] So if we get this goal, cause you know, I'm, I'm always planning on getting the goal, right? If we get this goal, then what? So like for instance, I was, I had somebody who came in, uh, he had a car accident and for three years was going to a chiropractor, had massive sciatica pain. Couldn't get rid of the sciatica pain.

[00:34:28] Finally, I convinced him to come see me. Two sessions, no more pain. Three sessions never came back. So I said, now what. Well, I used to be, I didn't expect this, the guy like this tall, you know, and his thirties, he's like, well, I used to be an extreme rollerblader. I would jump off second stories and bridges.

[00:34:54] And I shattered my ankle and I used to do all kinds of things like this. And I'd really like to train for American ninja warrior. Okay. Well, let's see, what do we need to do in order to make that happen? Is that possible? What's the timeframe that that would be possible. And is your timeframe enough? So like if I had an Olympic athlete, we had six months to get him from injury to competition.

[00:35:21] There was no window of, of error there. It was, we either get it or he's losing out on millions and millions of dollars on recognition on namesake, on all these kinds of things. Legacy. We cannot get this. There is no option for failure and my eyes. That's how I look at it. Like when I'm working with somebody, there is no option for failure.

[00:35:48] If there's no option for failure, then how do we make sure of that? What is the process to make sure of that? And so just think about it. If you went, if you went into your life like that, if you went into your life, your health, your nutrition, where we started this and said, there is no option for failure.

[00:36:07] By the time I am this age, I will be in this shape. I will have my body doing these things. And then you reverse engineer all the steps that it's going to take in order to get there. And then you just do the plan. The only key is the commitment. Then at that point is doing the thing you say you're going to do.

[00:36:27] And for that, you have to own shit. You have to own it.

[00:36:32] David Dowlen: Did you hear that, guys? We talk about all the time on this channel. You have to know your why. If you're going to get through and keep that. And you have to take extreme ownership. It's on you. You were the only one driving this. You're the only one who cares about you getting it done.

[00:36:48] And you are the only one who can make sure you see this through.
