    WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT... CBD'S

    WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT... CBD'S

    It is surprising how many athletes i know who are using CBD's for a variety of reasons. The more I investigated the more I came to realize that CBD's are nature's anti-inflammatory solution and that is only the tip of the iceberg!



    This episode is a very in depth interview with Jay O'Hare founder of Venga Endurance an extremely high quality manufacture of CBD / Cannabidiol products and an Ultra distance runner who gets it. I know a lot of people who either shy away from the idea of taking a hemp based supplement in fear of being "dosed" with THC or just ill informed. This episode is for you! Once you've listened to what Jay and I have to say, you might want to circle back and chase the link: https://vengaendurance.com/ and use my promo code to get a price break! DHP10

    The Dark Horse 8 Week CrossFit Training Plan Revealed

    It starts out seeming like "The Odd Couple" but ends up becoming a training program that has the potential to change the way CrossFit athletes approach their training.  Richard Diaz is recognized in the Obstacle Racing community as world renowned Running mechanic and diagnostican.  Ryan Fischer is arguably one of the best CrossFit athletes in the world.  Together they created a program that is incredibly different but remarkably effective in "Battling the War on Fatigue".  Release only 5 weeks ago and many of the first adopters are reporting personal records in CrossFit workouts that used to leave them flat on their faces!  Give it a listen... If you're intrigued here's wher you can get your copy.

    A Revolutionary Approach to CrossFit Training Revealed

    A Revolutionary Approach to CrossFit Training Revealed

    Before you freak out, no, I am not turning tail on OCR or endurance training programs.  If you follow my work, you know that recently I developed a program in collaboration with Ryan Fischer an extremely talented CrossFit Athlete.  This program has been out for a mere 5 weeks and meeting with rave responses.  An OCR athlete would do well to consider this process as the theme of the project is “Winning the Battle with Fatigue”.  It so happens that an early adopter who has been in the program for said five weeks was kind enough to share his experience thus far.. It’s worth a listen because his results are extraordinary.  After you have a chance to hear his review feel free to reach out to him @mathewfreeman or pick up a copy of the program for yourself.  Here is the link: https://www.gymryan.com/pages/endurance-rich-diaz

    RYAN FISCHER – ELITE CROSSFIT ATHLETE

    RYAN FISCHER – ELITE CROSSFIT ATHLETE

    What happens when you mix one badass CrossFit athlete with Coach Diaz in The Secret Lab?  Answer: You get a hybrid training program that is sure to set the CrossFit community on fire!  I know what you’re thinking… Coach Diaz and CrossFit?  Had you asked me a year ago if this were ever likely to happen, I would have serious doubts.  It took an introduction from Hunter McIntyre to bring Ryan Fischer and I together and I have to say, I was intrigued. Ryan is one of the fittest athletes I have ever met. When you consider the fact that he can deadlift 600 pounds (over 3 1/2 times his weight), clean and jerk 315, run a 53 sec. 400 meters and a 5 min mile. Most rational people would be hard pressed to disagree with me.  This interview is way outside my playground and I love it!  If you’re a Spartan athlete, participate in obstacle course racing yet still enjoy intense strength training, this episode is for you!  We reference a few videos we did in The Secret Lab, if you want to see them Go to my YouTube Channel “Richard Diaz” and see these and many more!

    Interview with the Co-Founder of Stick Mobility

    Interview with the Co-Founder of Stick Mobility

    This episode sheds light on a training tool and training concepts that can make a tremendous difference in your ability to perform in a Spartan Race, as a runner and an athlete in common.  I speak a lot about the role that stability and mobility plays in athleticism because in the absence thereof, there is only injuries.  Full disclosure I am not sponsored by or paid to introduce these concepts or products on my show.  I personally believe this is a tool that can truly make a difference if you follow the education they provide.  I have invited Dennis Dumphy the cofounder of stickmobility on to share this info with you.
