    Get A Complete, Full-Body Biohacking Workout in 20 Minutes with No External Loads or Joint Impact, Using The Electrical Modality That Is Taking The World By Storm

    Get A Complete, Full-Body Biohacking Workout in 20 Minutes with No External Loads or Joint Impact, Using The Electrical Modality That Is Taking The World By Storm

    In a past episode, I revealed my discovery of what I consider to be the next frontier of electrical muscle stimulation.
    …but with all other forms of EMS I've used in the past, although getting great results for injury rehab, muscle growth, targeted muscle “re-training,” and more, I've also had to deal with all sorts of wires, time-consuming electrode attachments, confusing user interfaces, and a pretty clunky experience that takes up a lot of time.
    This brand-new electrical muscle stimulation suit called the Katalyst is a total game-changer. You literally just pull on the suit and select from any of the workouts on the app, and a personal trainer not only walks you through the entire workout, which involves functional fitness moves like squats, side lunges, presses, cardiovascular and power movements, and a whole lot more…
    …but the intensity is automatically adjusted by your trainer as you go, and so it also creates a highly customized workout. This is one of the coolest time hacks for exercise that I've discovered in a long time, and—coming from a guy who has done a lot of different workouts—I can tell you that this thing is not some gimmicky “As Seen On TV” technology that you use to get a six-pack while you're sitting on the couch eating Twinkies.
    In this episode, I interview the founder and CEO of Katalyst—Bjoern Woltermann—to take a deep dive into the latest science on EMS and how this new technology works.

    The #1 Exercise For Low Back Pain, 4 Must-Do Exercises, Biohacking Late Night & Shift Work, Keto To Carnivore Transition & Much More

    Last year, my sons and I watched the first season TV series called "The Chosen." It's basically the story of Jesus and his "chosen" disciples told in a very, very compelling manner.
    While speaking with a friend about "The Chosen," he commented to me that he knew the creator of the project, and the guy actually happened to be into fitness, recovery, mind-body connection, biohacking, and many of the healthy living subjects we often discuss on this show. So he made the introduction to the man himself: Dallas Jenkins.
    Dallas Jenkins, son of celebrated Left Behind author Jerry Jenkins, first produced the independent feature Hometown Legend at the age of 25 and shepherded it to distribution by Warner Brothers. In the nearly 20 years since, he has directed and produced over a dozen feature and short films for companies such as Universal, Lionsgate, Pureflix, Hallmark Channel, and Amazon. He is now the creator of the largest crowd-funded media project of all time, a multi-season series about the life of Christ entitled The Chosen.

    The Wake-Up Lounge, Italian Dinner Feasts, Travel As Education, "FU" University & Other Massively Important Parenting Principles (Boundless Parenting Book Series)

    The Wake-Up Lounge, Italian Dinner Feasts, Travel As Education, "FU" University & Other Massively Important Parenting Principles (Boundless Parenting Book Series)

    Patrick and Laurie Gentempo are dear friends of mine, superstar parents, world-changers, philosophers, entrepreneurs and a featured couple in my upcoming Boundless Parenting book.
    Their parenting habits were incredibly unique, including a "Wakeup Lounge", during which their kids would get up in the morning, come into the family room, sit in a comfy chair or couch with a warm blanket with a log on the fire, meditative music on in the background, incense burning, and a warm drink in hand. It’s an environment of peace and harmony where they start the day together. Sometimes they’ll talk about the day. This goes on for 20-40 minutes, passing from sleep to the waking state, ready to start the day from a harmonious proactive state as compared to jolting into action and flying out the door with stress.
    They believe travel is the best education we can give our children and they have taken their own kids all over the world, based on the idea that experiencing other languages and cultures and landscapes broadens their thinking and actions and bonds a family through having those experiences together.
    The Gentempo's thrive on certain parenting premises, such as...
    No child was ever made good by telling them how bad they are. One of the best things parents can do for their children is love each other. Children learn more by example than by words. How a child starts their day is critical. Family rituals are a building block of a child’s adult life. The most important education a child gets is outside of school. Self-esteem and self-confidence are job one. Integrity must be consistently on display. These are great parents, and we get into these concepts and many others on this podcast.

    Plant Medicines In Religion, "Journeying" Without Drugs, A Medical Use For Entheogens & Much More With "The Christian Psychedelic" Paul Risse.

    Plant Medicines In Religion, "Journeying" Without Drugs, A Medical Use For Entheogens & Much More With "The Christian Psychedelic" Paul Risse.

    Plant medicine, psychedelics, Christianity, spirituality.
    For the past year, I've been engrossed in how those topics fit together, if and how I want to incorporate those practices and concepts into my life, and what I want to share with you if you're also looking to sort through things yourself.
    What has been particularly helpful in this process of thought and study is talking to (and reading books written by) other people who are also on this reflective journey. Paul Risse is one of those people. Paul first joined me on the podcast "The Christian Psychedelic: Should Christians Use Plant Medicines, Is Microdosing (Or Tripping) A Sin, Accessing Spiritual Realms, DMT & Much More With Paul Risse & Ben Greenfield." Today, Paul is back.
    Paul is also the CEO of Cleanse America, where he has led 10,000 people through a cleansing process over two years, writing numerous eBooks, producing videos, and orchestrating each of these cleanses. He built his own house without experience going into the process, and he wrote a book about the journey called "Kinda Tiny Home, An Unorthodox Approach to Building and Owning Your Own Home." 
    Perhaps most relevant to today's show, Paul took psychedelics around 1,000 times over a decade, including DMT, Salvia, 2CB, 2CI, and LSD, though 99% of what he engaged in was mushrooms. Paul recently released a book called "The Psychedelic Christian," which is part art, free verse, poetry, Bible verses, spirit realm exploration, testimony, and Holy Spirit encounters.
