Show Notes

JC Santana returned once again to discuss a wide variety of topics related to functional training, mixing various hybrid forms of training, diet, supplements, aging, real life, and more.

Assorted Topics

The trio discussed different gym environments. Sometimes JC will spend literally 2 hours going through his workout, and yes, that includes lots of chatting with friends. But he still gets the work done.

Scott lamented the differences in gym environments these days, comparing your average big commercial gym to the comradery you can see in Pumping Iron.

Mike noted that Daniel Coyle talks a lot about talent hot spots or talent hot beds in his book, Talent is Overrated, and his upcoming book, The Culture Code, is actually going to be all about these.

JC admits to being a “biohacker,” and downs 35-40 pills a day. But he thinks when you get into it for vanity reasons, well, that’s a slippery slope.

Bret Contreras’ glute work has helped JC a lot recently with his squats, and for the first time he’s actually feeling his glutes in his squats. But to do this, it involved a lot of exercises that guys typically don’t want to do… because they’re misguidedly viewed as “women’s exercises”.

There was a lot of discussion about hybridity and hybrid forms of training – when to bring bodybuilding into functional training, or vice versa.

The dumbest thing JC has done? Stepping on a stability ball to talk about how dumb it is to step on a stability ball. Yes, it led to injury.
