To restore our health, strength and vitality by providing history’s healthiest whole food nutrients to the modern world.
This week, we had originally planned on featuring an interview with Jen Reissman of One Stop Paleo shop, but we couldn’t wait to share what we recorded a couple days ago. It’s a conversation with Dr. Andy Galpin, a professor at the Center for Sport Performance at California State University and Director of their Biochemistry and Molecular Exercise Physiology Laboratory.
We met at Paleof(x) while moderating a panel called “Swole by Science”. He was a featured panelists that struck us by his ability to take complex physiological processes, like how muscle contractions occur thanks to millions of tiny protein filaments called actin and myosin, and to break them down into an understandable and relatable form.
The plan going into this interview was to get Dr. Andy to reiterate the points he made during the panel discussion, but what we didn’t expect is to get into some seriously awesome side conversations.
On today’s show we discuss:
- The nature of academia.
- Why mediocre athletes make great researchers and what it’s like to really train superstar pro athletes.
- What his father and grandfather taught him about extreme responsibility.
- How to cut through the “smoke and mirrors” of health marketing.
- The difference between knowledge and wisdom.
- How he went from being a Paleof(x) skeptic to a full on fan.
- And, of course, how muscles work, what they’re made of, and how to make them bigger.
