    Avoiding 1-Rep Max Living | Duck Bite with Dr. Scotty Butcher

    Avoiding 1-Rep Max Living | Duck Bite with Dr. Scotty Butcher

    Here's a quick gem about functional reserve and building capacity in older adults from a classic episode with The Strength Jedi, Dr. Scotty Butcher! 

    "If your 1RM squat is your bodyweight you’re in trouble as time goes on. If you’re not trying to build that at some point you won’t be able to get out of a chair, the higher your overall strength and fitness levels the greater you can deal with those age-related declines."

    Thanks for listening!

    Understanding Empathy vs Sympathy and Why People Riot

    Understanding Empathy vs Sympathy and Why People Riot

    Jared & Tyler have a tough conversation about the shooting of Jacob Blake, Breonna Taylor, and the events in Kenosha, WI. The two discuss systemic oppression and how "well-meaning" people can be complicit in perpetuating oppressive thought viruses. Other topics discussed include the challenges of being an ally, rioting, understanding human rights violations, defunding the police, Grand Theft Auto, and The Boondocks. 

    SYMPATHY = acknowledging that the other person is going through an emotional or physical struggle, supporting them and giving them comfort.

    EMPATHY = something more than just this. It’s actually understanding what the other person is feeling because you’ve had a similar experience yourself or you’re able to put yourself in their shoes.
