Sleep apps, and heart rate monitors, and supplements, and air conditioners, and coffee, and more coffee. We live in an optimized world, and it is making us weak.

In episode 259, we are bringing Brian Mckenzie (@iamunscared) and Andy Galpin (@drandygalpin) back to talk about the research they are doing around performance, and what it means to be a resilient human in a comfortable world.

Never before have we had it so easy, and although we are training and optimizing our diet, our comfy lifestyle is holding us back from being as strong as we could be. It is one thing to have a training routine, but as soon as we go back to our air conditioned rooms and perfectly organized lifestyle, we lose the ability to adapt to the stress that our body has evolved to feel.

Brian and Andy have co-authored a book called Unplugged, and in it they have put in the work and laid out the practices we can adopt (and the one’s we need to abandon) if we want to create a resilient body and mind.
