#39 – 7 Habits Necessary to Thrive NOT Survive


Download Episode!

As you go through each day, your mental decisions and actions fall into a mixture of four quadrants: Personal, Professional-Educational, Financial and Heath/Wellness/Performance.  During this podcast, Coach Robb discusses the difference between simply surviving from day-to-day and thriving on a daily basis for maximum productivity and happiness.

If you were to wake up tomorrow independently wealthy, answer these three questions:

  1. What would you eat all day long?
  2. What would you do with your time until you went back to bed?
  3. Who would you spend your time with all day and night?

Like all Coach Robb podcasts, the catalyst behind this subject is the number of emails and phone calls that Coach Robb and his staff receive regarding the struggles of “just getting through a day”.  The end results are individuals that are tired, frustrated and not achieving their full potential, often making it harder and harder to get out of bed each day motivated.

Whether you are young and uneducated about the specifics of these four quadrants of life, someone in a mid-life situation that is feeling the by-product of poor choices, or in your golden years trying to fix mid-life mistakes, this podcast will help you align your situation with your desired outcome – living life as if you were independently wealthy.  Coach Robb walks you through his 7 Habits Necessary to Thrive NOT Survive and discusses how aligning your perspective and actions will put you on the path to a simple, sustainable path to thriving!

Listener’s questions include: Why is diaphragmic breathing so relaxing?. Why doesn’t Coach Robb recommend eating the first hour of exercise?; Why are canned black beans included in Coach Robb’s cookbook and snack books?; What should a young student study to do what Coach Robb does?; and, Why os Coach Robb so adamant about training and racing with a heart rate monitor?

#38 – The Power of Knowledge and Understanding the Why?


Download Episode!

There is literally an epidemic of burnout, injury and illness regarding the health of individuals and athletes of all ages, mainly due to the lack of knowledge amongst parents and coaches alike.  Parents and athletes put their trust into individuals (aka “Coaches”) that claim they know what is right for the athlete (regardless of sport or age) only to find that their athlete is being over trained and threatened if they ask WHY they are training the way they are.

During this podcast, Coach Robb addresses a listener’s email regarding an elite tennis coach who actually advocates fast food for his athletes and provides insight into why the statement is not only absurd, but is both unhealthy and dangerous for athletes and non-athletes alike. Coach Robb also discusses the importance of understanding the WHY behind performance frustrations  – whether a triathlete, baseball player, runner, motocross racer, or someone wanting to drop body fat once and for all. By drilling down on the source of the frustration and addressing the WHY (instead of simply following a generic training plan), athletes can learn to train with specificity, make performance gains, and avoid injury and/or exhaustion.

Note: Per the requests of listeners, Coach Robb will be doing podcasts specific to sports in future shows.  If you have a question or frustration specific to your favorite sport/discipline, please email them to Christy at [email protected] to ensure that he addresses them.

Listener questions include: “How do I stop the craving of simple sugar?”; “How do I improve strength to weight ratios specific to Ironman triathlon training?”; “Which is more efficient – standing or sitting while climbing on the bike?”; “What should I do to improve baseball specific speed?”; “Why did I run out of energy while doing the 2-Week Food Challenge and the 3-2-1 Walk Challenge?”

#37 The Fine Line Between Achievement & Self Sacrifice


Download Episode!

Behind every achievement in life, there has to be a commitment to the work and sweat equity necessary to complete each milestone associated with accomplishment.  However, knowing when to rest, when to push moderately and when to give 100% is the million dollar question that has to be asked and answered on a daily basis to avoid crossing over that fine line into mental and physical fatigue and ultimately tapping out of the journey to reaching your fullest potential.

During this podcast, Coach Robb outlines how the body and the brain go round after round fighting to achieve the delicate balance of health and performance. We know that performance milestones are necessary to achieve anything great, but when is too much? And when do we have to be responsible enough to say this is adversely affecting my health? On the flip side, how do we know when it is time to really push the tissue? Grab a couple pieces of paper and jot down some notes as Coach Robb walks you through the three stages of physical adaptation, three stages of mental achievement, and how to evaluate the fine line between achievement and self sacrifice. Coach Robb wraps up the podcast by illustrating to you the long term benefits and/or costs associated with what you are doing TODAY!  Listen, take some notes and start turning your daily efforts into long term success in a manner that is both healthy and sustainable.

Listener’s questions include: What can be done to improve deep sleep duration for optimized recovery? How do you keep yourself from getting sick?  Why does a smoothie work better on my stomach than solid food?  Why are running time trials slower in a humid environment? and why is there conflicting information about ice and/or heat, along with anti-inflammatories?
