Since 2013, thousands of people have discovered the astonishing depth of Chris Moore's work through his podcast and his books. Even after his passing in 2016, countless people continue to seek out Barbell Buddha's timeless wisdom, hilarious wit, and unforgettable nuggets and pearls. Barbell Buddha Rediscovered will take Chris's audience on a journey to reignite his mission of self-realization and exuberant living by plucking out those pearls and nuggets, episode by episode, to rediscover the amazing work of our buddy, Chris Moore. Together, we'll spread his message and mission with millions more.
Ep 80 - You, much stronger in 2021
Today on the show we're getting stronger, setting better goals, and riding the wave of life. Chris has some tips on goal setting for strength and we're going to flesh that out and show you how to apply this to everything you want to pursue. Enjoy!
Ep 79 - The Story of Two Chris's w/ special guest Dr. Andy Galpin
This interview is going in as a substitute for episode 79 of Barbell Buddha, the "Barbell Shrugged Thanksgiving special w/ Christmas Abbott" that took place in Sweden while visiting Eleiko’s Headquarters. That episode is fun and loose and there are some gems scattered in this episode, so I encourage you to go listen to it after this interview.
Dr. Galpin is a tenured University Professor with a PhD in "Human Bioenergetics". He teaches classes, publishes research, and works with athletes in the areas of health, human performance, strength & conditioning, and nutrition. If you’re a fan of Chris and Barbell Shrugged you’ve heard his name many, many times. Andy was a colleague, former roommate, and close personal friend with Chris. I can’t thank him enough for coming on the show and paying tribute to Chris’s legacy and giving an honest, raw, and at some times, emotional take on Chris’s life and legacy.
I’m going to kick the show off with a song called “All or Nothing” by my favorite band, MuteMath. I encourage you to listen deeply to the words and carry that forward into the show. “Don’t waste your whole life, on just a half try, it’s all or nothing”
Please enjoy this special episode of Barbell Buddha Rediscovered called “The Story of Two Chris’s.”
Ep 78 - The Power of Fight
Today on the show I confess my sins against the muse and how life is testing my persistence, and Chris talks about the band KISS and discusses The Power of Fight. I have some great clips lined up for you today. Let's rock and roll!
Ep 77 - Dia de los Muertos
Today on the show I summarize Chris's 7 Lessons for Progress, and we reflect on the significance of this show and how it foreshadows so much to come for Chris. A deeply personal episode, and a tribute to the Buddha himself.
Ep 76 - Here Comes Success! 4 Lessons for Doing Awesome Sh*t
Today on the show I share a listener success story and Chris has 4 Lessons for Doing Awesome Sh*t. I don't know about you, but I like doing awesome sh*t. If you do as well, this show is for you! Enjoy.
Ep 75 - Thank God for the f*ck-ups and let downs, eh?
Today on the show we'll get into the Hero's Journey and why f*ck ups and let downs are all part of it. We get a lot of Chris today as he recounts his own personal history and perspective on failure and why everything is going to be ok, if you allow it.
On a personal note, I think this is the best Barbell Buddha Rediscovered I've produced so far. I know you'll leave inspired and ready to tackle any challenge thrown your way. Enjoy it.
Take Chris’ teachings to the next level
My only complaint with Chris Moore is that he has SO many nuggets and pearls, it’s easy to get lost in his wealth of knowledge. Let Brooks breakdown Chris’ work and deliver it to you in a way that will let you absorb at your own pace. For someone who has read all Chris’ work and listened to Barbell Buddha, this lets me revisit Chris from a new perspective. Thanks Brooks!
Thanks so much
Chris has a profound impact on my life. I reread the collected works often as a daily devotional. Thanks so much for pushing the conversation one more step forward.
It makes my heart happy to hear Chris’s work continue. I felt so connected to this beautiful person.
