Are you winning the war against gravity?
In this podcast episode, Dr. Eric Goodman of Foundation Training shares deep thoughts and tips about biomechanics, complacent adaptations, how to decompress the body, and activate the right muscles, joints and tissues in life and in sport.

Third up in the free webinar series: Using HRV to Optimize Sleep, Nutrition & Alcohol.
In this webinar, we’ll cover how HRV can quickly tell you what sleep quality and quantity is optimal and what foods you are sensitive to (hint: it’s NOT “one-size-fits-all”). We’ll also cover the health impact of popular substances and guilty pleasures, like the consumption of alcohol and caffeine. Again, the answer is highly dependent on your personal circumstances!

The Elite HRV team is hosting a free webinar series on Kickstarter Live covering how to use HRV and CorSense to optimize stress, health, and fitness.
First up in the series: Stress and Mental Resilience.
The stress of life comes from many different sources and can be tricky to balance while tackling your other goals. Join us to learn how exactly to use HRV to quickly improve your resilience to stress from work, family, commuting, relationships, and many of life’s surprises.
Learn why HRV is useful for finding dietary offenders. Quick tests using HRV to determine food sensitivities.
Keith brings muscle, brains, and pragmatism to the quest for health and performance. His simple but effective tips for exercise, health, and business could easily boost your results in all three areas.
Everyone ages at different rates. Our “true age” (also “biological age”) actually depends on systemic inflammation: from our lifestyle and environment combining with our genetics. True age represents our capacity for resilience, in tolerating and recovering from the inflammation of life stresses. By increasing this resilience, we could even get younger in true age! It requires frequent tracking of biomarkers like heart rate variability (HRV).
Josh Trent interviews Jason Moore on topics including:
– We can sometimes spend years trying to develop our wellness intuition. We can speed up this process if we learn the proper ways to track and analyze our biological data through different forms of wellness tech.
– Extreme exercise might make us “better” at certain activities, but this may be at the expense of other parts of our wellness. Technology can help us know when to slow down so we don’t jeopardize important areas of our health.
– HRV can give us incredible insight into other areas of our wellness and how our body functions. We don’t need massive amounts of tracking with HRV, 5 minutes a day for a couple weeks can give us great insight into how we can adjust our lifestyle to improve our wellness.

After many years of study, the health impact of coffee remains mixed. But heart rate variability (HRV) may have a relationship with long-term coffee consumption. A new study of over 15,000 subjects looked at the relationship between coffee consumption and HRV readings.
Chronic stress is a feature of modern life. It often comes from hidden, unexpected, hard-to-pin-down sources. With appropriate tracking, heart rate variability (HRV) can help identify these sources of chronic stress.
Are all lab tests created equal? Chris Kelly breaks down the lab tests that get the best results for his athletes and health clients.
We talk blood work, hormone and cortisol testing, stool testing, and how to make better decisions given certain lab results. Join me in this great discussion with Chris Kelly of Nourish Balance Thrive!
Excerpt from Andrew Kemp’s article: “… little research has been done which looks at how the vagus nerve affects body and mind together. That’s why I teamed up with colleagues to question whether previously reported relationships between vagal function and cognitive performance could be explained through a single physiological pathway.”

Dr. Steve, the Sock Doc, shares a journey of integrating systems within the body. Connecting the nervous system to organs, muscles, bone, connective tissue and more, Dr. Steve has developed a practice around a concept he calls Systems Health Care – Integrative Wellness.
We talk hormones, asymmetry, dysfunction and simple tests you can perform to become more aware of your own situation. Tap here to listen.
Micronutrients such as amino acids, specific vitamins, and minerals can significantly impact your Heart Rate Variability scores and your overall health and performance. Learn more about the role of micronutrients and supplements in achieving your health and performance goals.
Could micronutrient deficiencies be holding you back?
Dr. Eldred Taylor shares the importance of amino acids for energy and autonomic nervous system health, as well as how they and other micronutrients impact your Heart Rate Variability.
Hint: These topics could be a good place to look if your energy levels, motivation, and general health aren’t where you’d like them to be.
Is it possible to have a nutrition plan that is customized *exactly* for your own individual needs?
Best selling author and former research biochemist Robb Wolf joins us to talk about the failings of one-size-fits-all diets, the neuroregulation of appetite, and much more.

Dan Quintana is a Research Fellow at the University of Oslo and received his PhD in Psychology from the University of Sydney in 2013. His research focuses on the role of heart rate variability, the autonomic nervous system and hormones on mental health. In this episode, we’re going to pick Dan’s brain on the relationship between mental and physical health, autonomic dysregulation, how HRV reflects mental health condition, antidepressants and other interventions.
Coach Alex Fergus joins us to share his experiences with balancing elite rowing, competitive powerlifting, and bodybuilding. He has done some extreme tracking along his journey with these sports and now his clients are benefiting too. We cover all sorts of experiments, slow training, and the Ketogenic diet. It is a large discussion filled with plenty of gems throughout.
First coverage with Dr. Phil Maffetone and Professor Paul Laursen on their newly published and controversial scientific paper titled: “Overfat and Underfat: New Terms and Definitions Long Overdue.” We discuss the pandemic of people who are “overfat” — defined as having sufficient excess body fat to impair health and how this classification differs from “overweight”. If we’re to truly address the problem, we need to start using the right terminology and not hiding behind propriety (in certain situations). Doctors, researchers and individuals all need to arm themselves to take control of what some are now calling the “world health crisis”.
In this part 2 of 2, Sarah Jamieson joins us to discuss both high tech and low tech biofeedback tools as well as topics such as how to prepare your body for the unexpected, unconventional training tools, movement patterns for all ages, and how to incorporate HRV into your business model.
Movement is an essential ingredient for optimal health and performance. In this part 1 of 2, Sarah Jamieson joins us to discuss mobility and durability and break down how your movement patterns are formed, how they degrade with time/bad habits, and what you can do about it.
