League of Wildness,

Today we're talking about Tempo Training and why I've been psyched on including it in my own training of recent.

What is Tempo Training?

>>Reps performed @ a prescribed cadence.

Tempo Training is always written as a four-number prescription.

For example: 3111

First number (3): This is the eccentric lowering portion of the exercise.

Second number (1): This is how long to pause at the bottom of the exercise.

Third Number (1): This is the length of the concentric (muscle shortening) portion of the exercise.

Fourth number: (1) How long to pause at the top of the exercise.

Why include Tempo Training?

  1. Improve movement quality.
  2. Reduce the likelihood of injury.
  3. Improve connective tissue health.
  4. Increase strength.

Example workout:

2-3 sets

Pushups @ Tempo 3111 8-12 reps.

Rest 60-90 seconds.

Should we include Tempo Training in future programs?

Thanks for listening!

League of Wildness,

There is an infinite amount of content we can consume. But like food, overconsuming content can cause problems. The challenge is that it feels good to get those 'ah-ha' moments, but if we never actually apply them in the real world I have to ask - what's the point?

I've strived to be much more intentional not only in regards to the content I consume but also in how I consume it. Specifically, I've been keeping notes on my phone where I'll just write a sentence or two from a podcast that I know will be valuable in the future.

In Kim's email last week, she did a FANTASTIC job outlining how she really took the time to go deep into a book and then apply the lessons into her life. She didn't just read the book and go "That's interesting. Okay, what's next?". She took the time and put in a serious writing effort to distill some of her own source code. I'm super inspired by hearing about her process and we hope to share more with the League.

Thanks for listening!

League of Wildness,

I'm using this episode as a practice to get back in the habit of recording podcasts consistently. Thank you for your patience and support over the past few months.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Marshall Fire update and our living situation.
  • How focusing on cooldowns and stretching has shown an immediate benefit.
  • How making protein the priority has helped me recover and improved my performance.
    ...and more.

Thanks for listening!

League of Wildness,

I recorded this episode a few weeks ago and for myriad reasons I'm just getting it uploaded now. I wanted to share my experience as well as some reflections regarding the Marshall Fire that destroyed my entire neighborhood on December 30, 2021. It was a very real example of just how quickly life can change. I was at home with my family, doing some casual holiday work and the next thing I know we are evacuating from our home as a wall of fire pushed by 80+mph winds drove it straight through the middle of of town. It was a surreal experience and I'm still processing the event. We are currently displaced from our home due to smoke damage. In addition, our neighborhood is essentially a hazmat zone from all the burned homes. It's not an optimal place for wildness.

On the bright side, the fire has brought the community together like nothing I've seen before. The generosity and selflessness that I've witnessed has been a powerful reminder of how much humans depend on each other. It's also made me extremely empathetic to those that have gone through, as well as those that will go through something like this in the future. It's 100% the case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time - no one did anything wrong and there is no fault. The fire just happened and its consequences must be dealt with. 

Thank you to all the members of the League of Wildness who sent words of encouragement as well as care packages. I cannot thank you enough and I'm eternally grateful. It makes me much more confident in the journey ahead having such a wild crew at my back.

Thanks for listening!

Setting the Tone for 2022

Hello to the League of Wildness,

2021 is coming to a close and it's time to start looking into next year. What type of wildness are you going to get into? What will your Misogi be? How will you set the momentum on January 1st?

All things to consider...

Thanks for listening!

Hello to The League of Wildness,

Thanks for tuning into this quicky episode. I've been on a hot streak with doing a morning walk/run/ruck and wanted to talk about cardio vs movement. I've also been getting back into the cold shower routine. Nothing crazy, just 1-minute or so first thing when I wake up - it's invigorating.

I also just had my first pseudo-cancel by Facebook. We created an ad featuring Alex from episode #103. It's a rad video that shares his story and transformation. But apparently, Facebook thinks that the story of a dude working his ass off for over a year and changing his life is not appropriate advertising material...

You can see this video here.

Thanks for listening!

Hey Wild Family,

This is an episode of mixed emotions. David, co-founder of monkii has resigned from the company. I've got nothing but love and respect for him. He had to do what was right for himself and his family. He is deeply missed and I wouldn't be where I am today if it were not for him. Thank you, David.

He has also played an integral role in helping Kim and I transition and keep moving forward. He has shared all his learnings from the past 8 years to set us up for success and continues to help us out when we need his expertise. Kim and I are stoked for the journey ahead and although we miss David wildly - we're excited to lead the next generation of wildness.

Thanks for listening!

Hey Wild People,

Thanks for tuning into the show. I wanted to share my Thanksgiving workout plans to see if anyone wanted to join in the wildness. I also wanted to express my thanks to you all. I literally would not be here if it were not for your support and I'm grateful.

How can we serve you better?

What is missing from monkii.co?

Would you be into a daily monkii sesh workout?

Please, let us know!

Wild Family - 

This is by far one of the best episodes we've had in a long time. I'd like to welcome Alex Layton to the show. Alex recently sent me a note on Instagram that I almost didn't believe at first. He lost 200-pounds by training with monkii 360 every day for one year. He literally used monkii 360 for 365 days in a row (and has the photos to prove it). He has made a total transformation and his energy, enthusiasm, and stoke is palpable. Alex is also a quote machine and his story has broad applications beyond weight loss. I appreciate him taking the time to come on the show and a follow-up episode is well in order.

Here we go.

Wild Family,

I'm sorry it's been so long. I lost the consistency and felt like I had to have some major come-back show to get back on track. But like most habits, it's probably better to just start where you left off and try to get better every day. So here we are...

Thanks to everyone who sent encouraging messages - it's good to start the conversation back up.
