Dr. Andy Gaplin is the creator of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory at CSU Fullerton, as well as their Director of Sports Performance. His studies prove that most people don’t fully understand the influence exercise habits, food consumption, and technology usage have on your long-term health performance. The co-author of Unplugged: Evolve From Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness Performance and Consciousness joins us to explain why awareness is the key to living a longer, healthier life.   This episode is sponsored by: Thrive Market: Get 25% off your first order and a 30-day free trial at https://thrivemarket.com/health Skillshare.

[29:53] Andy dives into some fruit and vegetable insight and myths. [35:00] Andy gives advice on how to make the biggest impact on your health. [46:15]   QUOTES: “If you can't then understand your own physiology to a level where you can fix that without needing more technology, you're gonna fail. That's a short game. And I want you to play the long game.” [5:49]   “The first thing would be simply becoming aware of what's happening. And the easiest way to do that is to decrease the amount of external stimuli coming in, and just being with your own self  as much as possible” [4:13]   “And what we know very clearly is the plasticity within the muscle, n other words, its ability to change its composition, changes really rapidly. So if you haven't strength trained on anything heavy in weeks, decades, I'm not surprised you have a hard time regulating that 'cause that's what it's primarily there for.” [18:08]   “There's a difference between variation in our training and randomization. Randomization is not a good idea. There's no plan. There's no purpose.” [18:37]   “What is magic for sleep is consistency for the most part. What I don't want people to be is slightly consistently underslept.” [22:04]   “I don't want people to be fragile. Not handling any unplanned stress. If you can't handle any unplanned stress in any aspect of your life and a little bit of stress, causes a big problem.” [29:56]   “Some people got a good draw and made bad choices. Some people got a really, really tough draw. Okay. What are you gonna do about it? You still have an option. You still kind of have some control but you have to make that choice.” [46:43] FOLLOW ANDY GALPIN WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/2WlbJPB INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2QJfQiz TWITTER: https://bit.ly/2Wo0iXt YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/2XplRDp FACEBOOK - https://bit.ly/2QQJ66R   ORGANIZATIONS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Biomedical and Molecular Exercise Physiology Laboratory at CSU Fullerton - https://bit.ly/2Mt0mRe [1:07] BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Unplugged: Evolve From Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness Performance and Consciousness - https://amzn.to/2QPeUJw [1:18]

[3:13] Patrick shares what Arnold Schwarzenegger represents to him. [4:38] Patrick analyzes the role DNA and experiences play in our potential. [9:18] Patrick speaks on the power of clarity. [15:00] Patrick and Tom discuss the process of shaping your identity. [17:30] Patrick dives into living with intention and urgency. [22:08] Patrick explains the power of not caring what other people think. [28:31] Patrick explores the idea of family traditions. [34:29] Patrick details his belief of aligning lifestyle with belief. [37:50] Patrick reveals the impact he wants to have on the world. [38:57]   QUOTES: “I also believe firmly that events, conversations, certain individuals can completely say something that can change your life forever.” [14:40]   “One of the scariest things about life is a question. The scary question can shake a soul up 'cause no one's asked that question from you. So for me, the transition for somebody who'd want to change it and get clarity is actually asking questions.” [15:38]   “If you don't ask the questions of what you want to do next, the world is gonna put you in the box of what you have to do next because they're determining who you need to be. And you are rising up to their expectations 'cause you're not asking the questions yourself.” [15:50]   “Clarity to me is stemmed from you being able to sit down and ask those tough questions that piss you off, that irritate you, that make you emotional, that you cry over, that you reflect, that makes you want to do research, that makes you follow up, that makes you sit down and say, "I don't really know. I've never thought about this before." And that goes deeper, and deeper, and deeper.” [16:08]   “Clarity gives confidence.” [16:55]   “Identity is you asking the questions until eventually you get to a point that you get to the deeper part of who do you want to be? What life do you want to live? And why do you want to live this life? Why is it important to you? Why is it worth you putting through all these hours? Why would you want to do that?” [22:20]   “I think declaring the intention serves a purpose. I think when you go out there and you say, "This is what I'm gonna be doing, this is where I'm gonna be at," you officially have the world holding you accountable.” [23:10]   “Haters highlight your weaknesses.” [29:48]   “The more you tell the world how to manage expectations dealing with you and what to anticipate, you actually minimize a lot of the noise.” [33:33]   “The solution for you to become free is you gotta question every single thing” [36:50]   FOLLOW PATRICK BET-DAVID: WEBSITE - https://bit.ly/30XeIfU FACEBOOK - https://bit.ly/2HMSy8p TWITTER - https://bit.ly/2HOxNJu INSTAGRAM - https://bit.ly/2KkGQUu LINKEDIN - https://bit.ly/2wztb3u   BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: The 25 Laws to Doing the Impossible - https://amzn.to/2QFPjCD [2:44] Meditations - https://amzn.to/2allL7m [35:56] Principles - https://amzn.to/2HMSnKh [35:58]   VIDEOS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: The Life of an Entrepreneur - https://bit.ly/1ShhMss [2:06]   COMPANIES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: PHP - https://bit.ly/2WnfrIR [1:27] Valuetainment - https://bit.ly/1IybV1h [2:17]
