FITAID Co-Founder and President Aaron Hinde w/ Anders Varner, Doug Larson, Travis Mash and Dan Garner Barbell Shrugged #650
52:52

A fitness enthusiast and former chiropractor with a passion for making the world a healthier place, Dr. Aaron Hinde saw a genuine need for cleaner, more functional products in the beverage landscape, over a decade ago. 

 

After assisting more than 5,000 individuals on the road to recovery in his chiropractic practice, Hinde envisioned a way to help the masses get off sugary drinks and improve their overall health, one sip at a time.

 

 In 2011, he co-founded LIFEAID Beverage Company, dedicated to providing individuals with active lifestyles with a functional beverage made with ‘only the good stuff, none of the junk.’ 

 

LIFEAID products are specially formulated, packed with high-quality vitamins and supplements in both low- calorie and zero-sugar options which never contain any artificial flavors or sweeteners. 

 

Each blend has its own custom ingredients, providing a range of benefits—from optimizing post-workout recovery to aiding in mental clarity and boosting your natural energy. 

 

Hinde’s background in nutrition and his unique eye for entrepreneurship, paired with his wit and charisma, have made him an enticing choice for a variety of media appearances.

 

In today’s episode of Barbell Shrugged we cover:

 

 

  • Overcoming the adversity after having your house burn down and losing everything
  • Building a community through culture
  • How FITAID competes and succeeds against giants in their industry
  • How FITAID commits to their employees and builds culture in the organization

  • Squat - 1019 lbs (~462 kg)
  • Bench press - 584 lbs (~265 kg)

Is TRT Right for You w/ Dr. Ben House, Dr. Andy Galpin, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #616
01:18:01

Dr. House has a Ph.D. in Nutrition from the University of Texas at Austin, which is one of the top ranked public universities in the United States. Dr. House is also a Nutritionist (CN), Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist (FDN), and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP). 

 

House was accepted to medical school without an undergraduate degree, but rescinded because during this time his father was fighting for his life with debilitating diverticulitis. The conventional medical model prescribed him pain killers, antibiotics, saltine crackers, and white bread. This pushed House to question the sick care model and look for the underlying lifestyle and dietary factors that could be the reason why his father was in so much pain. 

 

Lo and behold his father had Celiac disease and within a week of removing all grains and dairy from his diet he was symptom free. This was Dr. House’s first taste of Functional Medicine and he knew at that moment that this would be his life’s passion. Since then he has studied under some of the best in the world and continues to regularly attend and present at conferences and seminars around the world.

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

 

  • What is TRT and who is it for?
  • What is the research behind TRT?
  • What are the long term affects of TRT?
  • Is TRT the better than natural remedies?
  • Is TRT the best alternative to kickstart fat loss?

Ice Bath Science: Using Ice to Burn Fat and Boost Testosterone w/ Evan Demarco, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #613
01:08:19

Brown fat, also called brown adipose tissue or BAT, is a special type of body fat that is (activated) when you get cold. It’s also the same type of fat bears use when hibernating.

We are born with a lot of brown fat, especially behind our shoulder blades. Newborn babies can’t shiver, a process that creates heat within the body so they use their abundant stores of BAT to regulate their temperature.

There are two types of fat on your body – white fat WAT and Brown Fat BAT. White fat is the bad fat that we all associate with excessive caloric intake. Those calories are stored as white fat for use as a an energy source later on. White fat is mostly stored in thighs, hips and stomach and too much of this kind of fat is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. There are metabolic disorders.

The white fat in your body is made from large droplets of fatty acids. The cells of brown fat are packed tightly with mitochondria, the powerhouse of all of our cells. Brown fat takes in excess sugar and fat and breaks them down for use as an energy source.

What does all of this have to do with getting cold?

 

When your body gets cold, it produces a hormone called norepinephrine. Brown fat has receptors for the norepinephrine and when these receptors sense that hormone, they signal the abundant mitochondria to crank out the energy production. That energy production process creates heat to help regulate your body temperature.

Richard Sorin: Generational strength w/ Richard Sorin, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #610
01:19:31

Over 40 years ago, back in 1980, a school teacher named Richard Sorin was sweating over a hot piece of hand-cut welded steel in a small 2 car garage. He had already taught the scholastic weightlifting club that morning, followed by AM bus duty, 8 hours of gym class, PM bus duty (for extra money that was used to eventually start his business), and then the jogging club for the teaching staff. Following the school day, he would tear across town to make it to the steel yard before it closed, strap steel to the roof of a 1974 Toyota Land Cruiser, and drive back across town to get started with his new business and dream... Sorin Exercise Equipment.

 

You see, he loved to lift weights, and with a background of collegiate track and field and national level Olympic weightlifting, he knew his way around a weight room. What he did not have, was access to any super-strong, customizable, sport specific weightlifting equipment. Nothing on the market at the time was good enough for him. He was tired of the bar being set so low by weightlifting equipment manufacturers, so he did the only thing he could think of. He made his own.

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

 

  1. Strength training before information
  2. Developing a strength focused mindset
  3. The difference between old school and new school strength athletes
  4. How strength is the primary focus for improvement in life
  5. Reflecting on a life in strength

Sorinex: Legendary Strength Training w/ Bert Sorin, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #592
02:19:25

Bert and his wonderful wife Lesley are the proud parents of three children.  Bert and his family, a family rooted in strength, have been entrenched in the human performance world for as far back as he can remember. Growing up with a barbell in his hand has been pivotal in charting the course of his life and leading him to become a 4-time Division 1 All-American Track and Field (Hammer and 35 lb. Weight Throw), Southeastern Conference Champion, former record holder in Weight Throw, and an Olympic trials athlete. Bert is currently the President and Co-Owner of Sorinex Exercise Equipment, a very successful family run business founded by his father, another big name in the iron game, Richard Sorin.  Together they are the inventors of hardware and applications to make people more effective, efficient, and safe on the sports field and the battle field.  Although Sorin never served in the arms forces, his gear is changing the game to provide readiness and rebuilding to the veterans prior to, during and after their deployments to far off, hostile lands. Bert’s network of veterans, scientists, coaches and therapists allows for a combination of expertise and support, and has been changing lives on both sides of the table. Bert pushes each day to find the best in people, and to assist in their exploration of their potential and maximize their value to the cause.

  • Finding strength training for Track and Field

Train Your Body, Build the Mind w/ John Martin Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #586
01:13:34

John Martin is the Director of Aftercare for the Fit-Ops Foundation. 

Fit-Ops is a charitable organization that trains US Military Veterans to become trainers through a fully-funded three-week Bootcamp. 

 

During their time at Fit-Ops, veterans learn the skills and techniques they need to know to become personal trainers, and Fit-Ops also instructs them business and job-searching skills. 

Most importantly, however, Fit-Ops dedicates much of their training to help veterans to overcome their mental blocks and potential mental trauma. 

 

The organization has a dedicated staff that’s meant to look after veterans after they leave the camp. This is called “aftercare” and it continues as long as graduates remain in the Fit-Ops network.

Decoding the Mystery of Your Metabolism w/ Aaron Straker, Dr. Andy Galpin, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Coach Travis Mash Barbell Shrugged #576
01:07:29

My name is Aaron Straker. Eating large quantities of quality, nutrient-dense, whole foods and lifting weights are some of my favorite things to do. The grocery store and the kitchen are some of my favorite places to be.

 

I have a vision that one day everyone at the gym will have the body that they work for, because they realize how they spend the other 23 hours of their day are equally as important.

 

I want people to see that the answers they seek aren’t found in more reps, more sets, program hopping, fat burners, pump stacks, and other workout-specific supplements that provide only marginal value.

 

I believe that education is ultimately the missing key for those who struggle to achieve long term success with their nutrition. For this very reason, education is the cornerstone from which I build each and every implementation. More.

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

 

What is your metabolism

The importance of meal frequency and timing

Why your metabolism isn’t broken

Lifestyle factors that optimize your metabolism 

How macros and muscle make your metabolism

Your body and brain do not want you to be jacked. Low body fat and large amounts of lean muscle mass is the holy grail of body composition. Unfortunately, your genetics disagree, and this is what makes metabolic function so frustrating. However, there is a magic pill to overcome this, but, before we get there, it’s important to understand why your body is fighting against you. You are hard wired for survival. For millions of years, hunter gatherer societies had limited resources, calories were difficult to find, and your body built mechanisms to store energy (fat). In modern times, food is abundant (grocery stores), insanely easy to find (every corner), and calories are cheap (fast food). However, those survival mechanisms were never turned off. Our bodies still think we need to store food for the cold winter ahead. The overeating and storing energy cycle continues until you are slow, soft, sluggish, 15 pounds overweight, unhappy, and dying to take the deep dive into the Diesel Dad Diet. The magic weapon to overcome your body’s backwards thinking is muscle. Metabolically, muscle is very expensive. To build muscle, you must create an environment in which you break down old muscle tissue and repair it with new, stronger muscle tissue capable of meeting the demands of this new, challenging environment. At its core, this is why lifting weights and getting stronger is so important. By creating an environment that breaks down weak tissue you force your body to adapt, repair, rebuild, and get stronger. That process of adapting, repairing, rebuilding, and getting stronger is like throwing gasoline on the fire that is your metabolism. Calories no longer need to be saved for the future. Fat stores become the fuel to build lean muscle mass. Of course your body doesn’t want you to be jacked. Muscle is expensive. Constantly repairing old, weak cells and replacing them with new, stronger cells is hard. Muscle is the magic pill. Soft, slow, and sluggish has no place in an environment where strong, lean, and athletic are necessary for survival. Muscle is the key to optimizing your metabolism. Muscle is the key to burning body fat. Muscle is the key to eliminating slow, soft, and sluggish. Muscle is the key to strong, lean, and athletic.

What is Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis Exercise is not enough. In fact, when it comes to exercising, you are overemphasizing its importance on fat loss and body composition. Despite the social capital you receive for the blood, sweat, and tears of grueling workouts, these brutal sessions can be detrimental to you reaching your goals. Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend less time in the gym, more time doing leisure activities, and lose fat faster? This flies in the face of conventional wisdom. TV commercials, Facebook Ads, and elite athletes lead you to believe the only way to achieve your goals is to train 24/7. Those hours on the gym floor should be a near death experience and we all know the only way to finish a good workout is laying on your back, praying you don’t throw up, while the rest of class cleans up their equipment. In reality, cutting your grass, vacuuming your house, and going for a walk is equally beneficial for fat loss as your 1-hour HIIT class. Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) is the sum total of all activity in your day that is not sleeping, eating, or training. Yes, training, and training hard is important, however, it is impossible to keep that intensity throughout the day and overtraining can be detrimental to achieving your goals. Think of your body as a high performance vehicle. Hitting the gas and flooring it (High Intensity Exercise) sounds cool in the short term but a terrible decision for long term performance. You burn a lot of gas but things are going to break down quickly. NEAT is the slow burn, keeping the engine revved all day, burning fuel at a steady pace, all day, without the exploding engine. Waking up 10 minute early and completing the Diesel Dad 100. Pacing while you talk on the phone. Going for walks with your family. Fidgeting, not sitting still, and looking forward to “Non-Exercise” just as much as training time.. This is the beauty of the Diesel Dad Diet. Your body will be a furnace that burns fat around the clock without spending countless hours in the gym You will build more muscle. Burn more fat. Eliminate the crippling confusion about your metabolism. Stop feeling slow, soft, and sluggish.

Four Ways to Burn Calories and Optimize Your Metabolism - Diesel Dad Episode 2
12:09

2 Steps to Start building a strong, lean, and athletic body you are proud of.

Join my free Facebook group: http://bit.ly/DIESELDADDOJO

What is Your Metabolism?

Metabolisms are confusing.

Everyone knows they have one but nobody truly understands how they work.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to unlock the keys to how your body burns calories?

Wouldn’t it be empowering to know exactly much to eat to build a strong, lean, and athletic body you are proud of?

I get this process can be daunting.

I am not a scientist, have never worn a lab coat, and have an undiagnosed allergy to academia that has haunted me my entire life.

Lucky for you, this means I get to talk to you like a real human, without all the jargon that confuses the hell out of people.

So what is your metabolism?

It is the total amount of energy expended by your body in a given day.

This number is represented by an acronym, TDEE, which stands for “Total Daily Energy Expenditure.”

There are four major ways your body expends energy.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): All the chemical and hormonal reactions that keep you alive.

This is the amount of energy you need for brain and organ function, repair, and rebuilding of cells with absolutely ZERO movement in your day.

Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT): The amount of energy needed to walk, talk, raise your hands, type emails, and move throughout your day.

NEAT is the sum total of all non-exercise movement in your day. Physical Activity: This is the one everyone understands.

This is the dedicated time you spend in the gym, lifting, conditioning, and training.

Thermal Effect of Food (TEF): Every bit of food that enters your mouth undergoes a digestion process turning protein into amino acids, carbohydrates into glucose, and fat into fatty acids that can be used by your body.

What’s great about understanding these four components of your Total Daily Energy Expenditure is that all four are not created equal.

BMR = Roughly 60% of your TDEE

NEAT = Roughly 15% of your TDEE

Exercise = Roughly 15% of your TDEE

TEF = Roughly 10% of your TDEE

These numbers are the key to success.

With so many people focusing on more exercise, they miss the largest goal of increasing their baseline metabolism.

This is the key component to the Diesel Dad Diet Over 13 weeks you will lose 13 pounds by systematically increasing your baseline metabolism.

You will:

Reduce the total time spent in the gym.

Build more muscle.

Burn more fat.

Eliminate the crippling confusion about your metabolism.

Stop all the negativity of feeling slow, soft, and sluggish.

Build a strong, lean, and athletic body you are proud of.

Fitness: An Ethical Responsibility - Diesel Dad Episode 1
13:02

Schedule Your Diesel Dad Discovery Call

Fitness: An Ethical Responsibility 

I hate the term “motivation.”

Motivation is overrated.

The entire fitness industry is built on short selling aesthetics.

Looking good naked is awesome but the goal you have in mind is rarely attainable without a lifestyle you cannot sustain.

Performance plays to the long game until your joints despise you, consistency wains, and you’re telling stories of yesteryears bench press.

In the last year, over 42% of Americans gained an average of 29 pounds.

Millennials, age 25-40, gained an average of 41 pounds during lockdowns.

As an industry, it is time to move past motivation, aesthetics, and performance.

I believe you have an ethical responsibility to being strong, lean, and athletic.

Fitness is a conversation of ethics.

A conversation about being an asset, not a liability.

Increasing strength and decreasing fragility.

Carrying a low body fat percentage to reduce the risk of disease.

Athleticism to be an active participant in life.

These are learned behaviors modeled by leaders in our own lives.

Before teachers, coaches, and mentors, there were parents that laid a foundation for right and wrong.

Fitness is an ethical responsibility in the same manner that we have agreed lying, cheating, and stealing are detrimental to a functioning society.

This is accepting that over time, motivation, aesthetics, and performance will vary.

However, the ethical responsibility is a constant.

Accepting this requires developing a physical education on movement, strength, and conditioning.

An education on metabolic health, macronutrients, and muscle.

An education on running, jumping, playing, and physical freedom.

Accepting fitness as an ethical responsibility requires leadership.

It requires you to get off the sidelines, step into the arena, and lead by example.

Because strong families, raising strong kids, are led by Diesel Dads.

Concurrent Training (CT) is defined as the combination of resistance and endurance training in a periodized program to maximize all aspects of physical performance. Unless an athlete is in a pure-power sport like Olympic Weightlifting, or a pure-endurance sport like long distance cycling; a combination of both power-related and endurance-related attributes are required to excel in mixed-type sports. Mixed type sports are sports that depend on several different energy systems and different strength and speed properties. MMA, boxing, basketball, soccer, hockey and many other team-based sports fall under this category.

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

  1. What is concurrent training
  2. Does cardio make you weak
  3. Why concurrent training builds GPP
  4. Sport specific training while doing concurrent training
  5. How to implement and use concurrent training

Strong, Lean, and Athletic: Diesel Dad 30 Days Challenge w/ Anders Varner and Doug Larson- Barbell Shrugged #535
58:15

“We help busy dads get strong, lean, and athletic without sacrificing family, fatherhood, or fitness.”

- Diesel Dad

 

What you want:

 

A strong, lean, and athletic body that you are proud of.

What you are missing most right now.

Confidence - Believing in yourself is hard when you don’t feel good in your body.

Discipline - When time gets tough, you fall off the wagon, and struggle getting back on.

Competence - The lack of confidence and discipline bleeds into every area of life. If you can’t take care of yourself it makes taking care of others even more challenging.

These are the traits of leaders, role models, and every dad deserves to have them.

 

Fitness, Family, and Fatherhood are essential to happiness and busy dads should have a fitness program that ensures the success of all three.

 

Join the Diesel Dad Challenge Now.

 

We get it…

 

Our coaches are all dads and we know how busy life gets.

Low energy turns into missing the gym, bad food choices, and without knowing it, you put 15 pounds on in all the wrong places.

Even worse, it beats you down mentally and emotionally.

It feels like the mountain is just too high to climb.

 The Diesel Dad Challenge is by dads, for dads, to get you strong, lean, and athletic.

 

Let us be your guide.

 

Join the Diesel Dad Challenge Now.

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

  1. Why we created the Diesel Dad Challenge
  2. Why you need to get strong, lean, and athletic
  3. Why training is so hard being a dad
  4. Building consistency first thing in the morning
  5. How to training, eat, and win the Diesel Dad Challenge

Nate Palin is the Director of Education at the FitOps Foundation, an organization that equips veterans who are passionate about fitness, health, and wellness to find success after the military. 

 

Using fitness and the leadership skills that they gained during their time in the service, veterans are equipped with a new mission: to help improve the lives of others. Focusing on professional and personal development, veterans who graduate from FitOps are experts in fitness coaching, and are awarded a fitness industry professional certification and designated as Certified Veteran Fitness Operatives (CVFO), which gives them the tools necessary to launch a career in fitness and leadership.

 

Nate Palin served as a leader in the 2nd Ranger Battalion for seven years prior to his transition to strength and conditioning. Over the course of five combat deployments in support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom, Nate experienced the military’s performance shortcomings and observed the need for enhanced physical training to better support mission critical tasks. 

 

He began his coaching career in 2010, narrowed his focus to tactical strength and conditioning as a Performance Specialist for EXOS in Washington, D.C. in 2012, and coached Special Operations Forces at Joint Base Lewis-McChord from 2015 to 2018.

The Intersection of Mental and Physical Health w/ Matt Hesse, Anders Varner, Doug Larson, and Travis Mash - Barbell Shrugged #524
57:54

The core mission of FitOps is to improve the physical and mental health of veterans by creating purpose and community through the power of fitness. We believe that fitness is transformative to every aspect of our lives, and that a community that encourages a mindset and lifestyle of physical, mental, and emotional health is the way to help veterans achieve greatness in life after they serve.  

 

We don’t believe that any service member starts from scratch professionally when they enter civilian life--in fact, quite the opposite. FitOps is specifically designed to build on the fitness and leadership experience that veterans gained during their time in the service. The result is Certified Veteran Fitness Operatives (CVFOs), who guide themselves, their clients, and their community down a path toward being their personal best in fitness and in life.

 

To learn more go to http://fitops.org

 

In this Episode of Barbell Shrugged:

 

  1. The FitOps Foundation and mental health for Military Vets
  2. Fighting suicide and awareness for mental health
  3. Building a university for the FitOps Foundation
  4. Building a university for veterans in fitness
  5. The path to helping military vets transition to civilian life
