My guest on today's podcast, Justin Andrews – from the notorious Mindpump podcast – has an incredible passion for disrupting the personal training industry and creating groundbreaking programs and training tools that fitness professionals and their clients alike can benefit from. He believes that the fitness industry needs a massive facelift and a more advanced technology tool kit…
…and in today's show, recorded from my backyard patio studio in Spokane, Washington, Justin unveils an extremely unique training tool that he thinks is going to disrupt the realm of isometric training, central nervous system training and beyond.
Justin’s approach is to create programs that utilize technology and cut through the millions of options people face everyday when seeking specific information relating to their fitness needs. As a health and fitness professional with a proven track record training clients in the heart of the Silicon Valley, Justin works tirelessly to keep people educated and connected to quality personal trainers, and has a passion for developing the type of unconventional training tools we talk about in today's show.
During our discussion, you'll discover:
-How Justin developed the idea for a simple “stick” called the Axon that could allow for targeted isometric training, rehabilitation, muscle tensioning, nervous system preparation…[5:00 & 12:00]
-The variety of ways in which the Axon can be used for isometric training, breathwork, “trigger” sessions and beyond…[11:30 & 16:00]
-How Justin uses unconventional training tools like maces, clubbells, kettlebells, the Axon and much more in a typical weekly training session…[23:15]
-Two foods and supplements you can eat to maximize activation of your nervous system…[43:25]
-How you can get your hands on the brand new Axon device that is now ready on Kickstarter…[49:15]
-And much more!

One thought on “How A Simple Stick Developed Into One Of The Most Advanced Muscle Self-Quantification & Isometric Training Tools That Exists.”
I dig all your podcasts Ben (except my own lol…) and wish I had time to listen to, and respond to all; but do catch most. As a lifelong martial artist I like this subject for I’ve been experimenting with applications of both speed and isometrics using staffs/sticks balls, etc., for sometime, and since we can only control what can be measured, I have certainly thought along these lines. Surprised the old “Bullworker” wasn’t mentioned however haha… Great work by Justin and his team!! I’m definitely in on the early adopter.
