Remember the guys from the MindPump Podcast: Sal, Justin and Adam?

If not, perhaps you didn't hear my podcast episode entitled “The Mysterious Kuwait Muscle-Building Phenomenon, The Too-Much-Protein Myth, Anabolic Triggering Sessions & More With The MindPump Podcast Crew.”

It's a definite must listen.

As a matter of fact, that episode turned out to be such a must-listen that a few weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and flew to San Jose, California to hang out with and record with these guys once again, and to delve into their extreme knowledge of all things fitness, nutrition, muscle building, fat loss, biomechanics, exercise physiology, psychedelics and beyond.

During the discussion that ensued, you'll discover:

-Why Justin is creating a special stick that can measure your central nervous system integrity…[16:35]

-The crazy form of electrostimulation that can simulate a 600 lb squat…[21:40]

-How you can recover with lightning speed by using a strategy called “trigger sessions”…[24:15]

-The special phone app that Adam uses to induce an instant “power nap”…[37:05]

-The shocking dose of melatonin Ben uses for jet lag, and why Sal think melatonin isn't such a good idea…[42:15]

-The best way to block blue light from screens, phones, street lights and oncoming cars…[46:35]

-Three proven ways to turn on your butt, deactivate your hip flexors and eliminate low back pain…[51:00]

-And much more!

    My idea of a micro work out.

    real workout… I’ll lift weights on Monday and Friday ( very basic overall total body)

    microworkout ..sometimes on Wednesdays and or a Saturdays I’ll grap a sledge hammer in front of TV set and do 3 sets of triceps in extensions ala Dennis Rodgers style. low intensity but squeeze and burn tris.

    I can tell the difference in my arm/grip strength doing this randomly for a month versus not doing it because Im watching TV or surfing the net.

    I didn’t think much of your first interview with these guys and the first 25 minutes of this video were in my view a complete waste of time. I’m glad that I kept listening though as after the 25 minutes mark there was a lot of great content. I definitely plan to incorporate a few of their ideas into my current training program.

    It didn’t bother me, but I think these guys should learn to consider what affect language choice has on their viewing audience. Perhaps they are targeting a demographic that prefers to hear them say “fuck” at least once per sentence but, for me, the overuse of that type of language makes them seem more like a “bro-science” group rather than the well read, well educated group that the content of this video would otherwise imply.
