 Episode 068 - What's the Real Epidemic | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3805

With the recent concern over the Coronavirus outbreak around the world, Don and Derek start to look at health concerns that are closer to home and possibly much more within the control of our citizens. Recent studies have indicated that over 50% of the US population will be considered obese by the year 2030. Additionally, Americans are spending hundreds of billions of dollars on fitness classes, exercise equipment and active apparel with some of the poorest returns for overall activity and health in the world. “The United States leads the world in spending for every segment, including fitness classes ($37 billion), sports and recreation ($58 billion), apparel and footwear ($117 billion), equipment and supplies ($37.5 billion), mindful movement, such as yoga ($10 billion), and related technology ($8.1 billion). And yet, according to the academic journal The Lancet, for all of this spending, we rank 143rd globally for actual participation in physical activity. “ OutsideOnline.comIn Episode 068, the conversation focuses in on solving some of the problems around the epidemic of obesity and the ineffectiveness of current strategies. Is it just about choosing the right diet and exercise, or is it a deeper issue of our mindset around devoting consistent time and energy to living a healthier lifestyle? Until we determine the true causes of poor diet and exercise practices, as well as healthcare concerns, no amount of money will fix the problem.The D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217iHeart Radio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.

 Episode 067 - Managing the Talent | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3095

Following the recent Super Bowl win by the Kansas City Chiefs, Don and Derek discuss the issue of identifying, nurturing and managing talent within an organization in Episode 067. While people put a lot of emphasis on coaching and strategic decisions within a game, there is no doubt that you have to have the talent to put you in a position to win a championship. When a team is positioning themselves to make a championship run, it involves a lot of off-season deals to bring the right players into the fold. In some cases, it is a longer-term plan that involves drafting the right individuals to fit your scheme or philosophy. But, there is no doubt that you need the horses to win the race.We also discuss the pros and cons of acquiring individuals who may also bring some baggage to the party. The recent documentary on the life and downfall of former New England Patriot, Aaron Hernandez, is an extreme example of drafting someone who was a tremendous talent, but also was saddled with a questionable past. Teams are faced with a lot of information on every player they evaluate, including personality tests and investigative information from their security personnel on every player. Where does a team draw the line even though a player may have the potential to be a public relations nightmare? What can you do to support a player, athlete or celebrity to make sure they follow the right path and make good decisions? These and other questions will be discussed by Don and Derek in great detail in Episode 067.The D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217iHeart Radio – https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.

 Episode 066 - Prioritizing Family First | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2182

Recent events have encouraged Don and Derek – in Episode 066 – to discuss their involvement with family and the decisions around how they spend their time. The highly publicized helicopter accident tragedy that occurred in California with Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven other crew and passengers quickly became a time of reflection for many parents. Creating an appropriate work balance is ultimate key to fulfillment. Both Don and Derek enjoy the work that they do, coaching, educating and helping people to achieve their goals. At the same time, they both recognize that quality time with family must be set aside or integrated in a way that enables that balance to be achieved.While all of Don and Derek’s kids are involved in sport, the goal of all of their interactions is to have fun. Sport is an opportunity for bringing family together while avoiding the negative outcomes where parents can sometimes take things far too seriously, impacting the enjoyment of the kids. Once you spend time in an unwise manner, it is impossible to get that time back. One of the big takeaways of this discussion is to value every moment and don’t be afraid to be selfish and spontaneous when it comes to family time together.The D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.

 Episode 065 - Super Speeds and Your Golf Swing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3106

In Episode 065 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast, we meet with Michael Napoleon and Daisy Kenny of Super Speed Golf to talk about how their line of products and services have changed the way golfers approach training their swing. By using a combination of slightly over-weighted and under-weighted golf clubs, Super Speed Golf can elicit higher club head speeds and ultimately, better swing mechanics, for golfers. The variation in stimulus created by the Super Speed Golf clubs results in a faster and more efficient swing, with less overall effort. This concept has also been applied to create higher speed swing velocities in baseball and tennis.The SuperSpeed Golf Training System helps players increase swing speed through a concept called OverSpeedTraining. Coined by the SuperSpeed Team in 2014, OverSpeed Training resets the normal reaction speed of a learned motor pattern to something faster. This works by first reducing the weight of the golf club, therefore allowing the player to create a faster than normal golf swing. The brain “remembers” this faster speed as the training progresses through the three training clubs, which gradually increase in weight.For more information on Super Speed Golf, you can follow them via the links below:Website: https://superspeedgolf.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/superspeedgolf/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/superspeedgolfTwitter: https://twitter.com/superspeedgolfThe D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217https://www.iheart.com/podcast/966-d-d-fitness-radio-28797988/https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaSE9HujEdTvptQ7rsmKRjghttps://player.fm/series/dd-fitness-radio-podcastYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.

 Episode 064 - Alana Kessler: Deconstructing Game Changing Nutrition | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3766

In Episode 064 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast, we introduce nutrition expert, Alana Kessler, to talk with us about the issues presented in the recent Netflix Documentary, “Game Changers.” The documentary was produced by filmmaker James Cameron and discusses the benefits of a plant-based diet over more conventional meat-based diets. The documentary takes the side of plant-based diets and introduces a variety of athletes that have been training and competing as vegans. It also takes a closer look at the impacts of plant- versus meat-based diets on blood composition, sexual function and overall health, with some of these demonstrations creating compelling arguments for switching to plants. We pose some of the issues presented in “Game Changers” to Alana to get her opinion on what is valid and what may be over-simplified. As you can imagine, the answers are not so simple as ‘plant’ is better than ‘meat’. Alana discusses how you enhance and clean up your diet without taking sides in the plant versus meat debate.Alana Kessler, MS, RDN E-RYT is the founder of Be Well by Alana Kessler.

 Episode 063 - Don and Derek: Training Intensity and Sleep | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3185

For Episode 063 of the D&D Fitness Radio podcast Don and Derek sit down and have a serious discussion about monitoring their own sleep as an indicator of recovery, training management and overall health and wellness. Using technology that is readily available to consumers, Don and Derek assess their sleep and compare their results against the activities they undertake during a typical week. This, of course, leads to a discussion about the intensity of the work being done in a typical training session. How does training intensity influence the need for more sleep and greater recovery? Can an overly intense training session, particularly late in the day, negatively impact sleep quality over one or several nights? What is high intensity training, truly? These and other questions are discussed in depth by Don and Derek in an attempt to determine how individuals can monitor their sleep and make adjustments to their training, recovery practices and diet to optimize performance and general health.The D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.

Episode 059 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast welcomes Drew Mitchell from Penticton, BC, Canada to talk about his ongoing efforts to improve physical literacy in younger generations and the general population as a whole. We discuss the reduction in physical education requirements for our children in schools, as well as the lack of emphasis on teaching the teachers about proper physical education instruction and curriculum development. Drew also discusses the social benefits of being involved in sports, athletic pursuits, team building and competition, as kids are forced to deal with each other face-to-face and in the moment. These types of interactions also teach kids how to deal with failure and losing in a constructive manner, operating with rules, personal responsibility, accountability and consequences. This discussion is important for everyone to hear because of the far-reaching implications for health, productivity and general enjoyment of life. Drew also explains how much work and time is needed to build physical literacy at the local community level. The task is daunting, but incredibly necessary.Drew Mitchell works as a consultant focused on the development of physical literacy at the community level and promoting the Canadian Sport for Life Movement.

Jason provides us with a detailed walk through his career in the Navy Seals and identifies the physical tests and ‘weeding-out’ process used by the organization to find the best individuals for the job. While everyone talks about training like a “Seal”, it is not until you hear about the actual tests and training that you quickly figure out that this lifestyle is not for everyone. We also get to hear about the grueling rehabilitation process Jason went through following significant injuries incurred in a firefight in Iraq. The numerous surgeries and physical therapy required to essentially put Jason back together revealed his true grit and resiliency. Jason discusses these experiences and the leadership required to battle adversity as a motivational speaker and author. His upcoming book, “Overcome” teaches individuals how to overcome adversity with proven habits and mindsets learned by Jason over his extensive military career, his rehabilitation and his successful career in business.

On September 13, 2007, outside of Fallujah, Iraq, LT Redman’s Assault Team came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire, and he was severely wounded in the ensuing firefight. While recovering at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, LT Redman wrote and hung a bright orange sign on his door, which became a statement and symbol for wounded warriors everywhere. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, the Purple Heart, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, two Combat Action Ribbons and the US Army Ranger tab along with numerous other personal and unit awards. LT Redman is the author of “The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader,” which details lessons learned in leadership and overcoming adversity throughout his Navy SEAL career, his service in Afghanistan and Iraq and his personal journey with his wife Erica and their three children.Redman retired from the Navy in 2013, and founded Wounded Wear, a Non-Profit organization which supports combat wounded warriors and families of the fallen.

 Episode 055 - Jordan Shallow: An Appointment with the Muscle Doc | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3135

In Episode 055, we speak with Jordan Shallow on many issues related to training and injuries. Specifically, we get into discussions around exercise selection and optimal loading strategies for different scenarios. Jordan shares his thoughts on the reasons behind various injuries, but also touches on the importance of the psychological mind set around training, competition and rehabilitation.

 Episode 054 - Sean MacMillan: Putting the Right Foot Forward | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3449

In Episode 054 of the D&D Fitness Radio podcast, we sit down with pedorthist, Sean MacMillan to talk about orthotics, choices around footwear and the foot itself. As both Don and Derek have relatively flat feet, they were more than interested in Sean’s opinion on the need for orthotics and the plight of the flat-footed. We discuss innovations in orthotics over the last several decades, as well as the differences in foot types and individual preferences. We pepper Sean with questions about frequency of orthotic use, changing between different shoe types, sports and even going bare-footed for some activities. Additionally, we talk about shoe selection for different types of feet and activities. Sean MacMillan graduated from the University of Calgary in 1994, and began working in the field of Pedorthics in 1996. Sean competed in Track and Field at a Varsity level for 4 years. An Achilles rupture in 2001 necessitated a switch from weekend warrior to coaching. He worked for several years developing and implementing a sprint program for the Kelowna Track and Field team, working with several university and provincial level athletes. In 2003, he was named a National Team coach for the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Dublin Ireland.Sean’s Pedorthic experience began in a technical shoe store in Calgary in 1992, fitting shoes for the orthotist who worked on site. After graduating from University he began his pedorthic apprenticeship with Kintec Orthotics attaining his Certified Pedorthic Technician and Certified Pedorthist designations quickly taking on management of the Surrey satellite clinic. He enjoys all areas of Pedorthics including gait analysis, biomechanical assessment, orthotic fabrication, shoe modification and custom orthopaedic shoes. In 2007, he completed a 120 hour course on Custom bootmaking in central Oregon. Sean is actively pursuing his Master Craftsman designation while working with other members of the Honourable Cordwainer’s Company (A non-profit, educational Trade Guild of bootmakers and shoemakers.)For more information on Sean MacMillan, you can follow him via the links below:Website: https://www.orthoquestpedorthics.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/orthoquest/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/orthoquestpedorthics/Twitter: https://twitter.com/Orthoquest_PedThe D&D Fitness Radio podcast is available at the following locations for downloadable audio, including: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/d-d-fitness-radio-podcast/id1331724217https://www.iheart.com/podcast/dd-fitness-radio-28797988/Spreaker.com – https://www.spreaker.com/show/d-and-d-fitness-radios-showYou can reach both Don and Derek at the following locations: Don Saladino: http://www.DonSaladino.com Twitter and Instagram - @DonSaladino YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/donsaladino Derek M.
