My first podcast since the Spartan North America Championship Race in Lake Tahoe. It was an awesome race with a great venue and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately though this one left me with a pretty significant injury. I talk all about what happened and what the next steps are for me.
In the Inside Mike's Mind, I talk more about adversity. I figured I share some of the mindset shifts I am going through dealing with my injury. Most of us are hit with something at some point in our life. Shit happens and things don't go according to plan. It is time to regroup and decide on the next step. It can be a positive one or a negative one. The choice is completely up to you. Listen in as I share some tips on dealing with these struggles.
My research review looks at the squat. There are hundreds of different types of squats that have different benefits. This study looked specifically at the goblet squat and the landmine squat. I discuss some of the difference found in this study with which muscles are being worked more and how it might be important for women in particular and those with knee injuries.
And finally I have a great chat with SGX Coach Adam Holt. I interrupted Adam's vacation so he can chat more about some really cool things he has been doing. He was getting ready for the Ultra in Utah when we recorded this, so we chatted about him prepping for it. Adam also started a really cool program called Outsiders Anonymous. This is a program designed to help struggling addicts. He offers free fitness programs and Spartan Race training for those recovering.
