Born without genetic gifts, my podcast guest today was once a weak and scrawny young man, who set out on a quest for the best body and brain secrets in his pursuit of super strength, mind power and radiant health. Nowadays, he’s known for his famous feats of pulling an 8,800 lb. firetruck by his hair, juggling flaming kettlebells, supporting half a ton in the wrestler’s bridge and more. He is the author of many books, a coach and a public speaker, and you can access all the goodness he how produces on his website “Lost Empire Herbs“.

His name is Logan Christopher.

And yes, I am serious – as a performing strongman, Logan has pulled an antique fire truck by his hair, juggled kettlebells that have been lit on fire, done weighted back flips, supported half a ton in a wrestler’s bridge position, and many of the more typical old-time strongmen feats like phonebook tearing and nail bending.

In today's podcast, we delve into neurolinguistic programming, hypnotism, energy medicine, psychology, herbalism and beyond, and during our discussion, you'll discover:

  1. Derek says:

    How might one prepare guayusa in the same way the indigenous amazons do and how long should one wait to purge?

    1. Derek, unfortunately I’m not sure on all of the details on how they prepared it. Basically it was leaves in a pot of water which they had brewing for over an hour. The Achuar drank it by itself, but the Quechua of Sarayaku would add other roots and herbs to it.

      As for purging a lot of tea is drunk within a few minutes until the stomach is full. That is when you purge.

    Thanks for the podcast!

    Is there a discount code for the hebs apart from the general 15% offered in the website? It would mean a great deal specially for the listeners from overseas, since the shipping costs are really high…

    1. Not at this time unfortunately!

    Hello Ben
    I love this podcast episode! It just came to my mind that I read a book on lifting and hypnosis and bio-feedback a long time ago. The author is Dr. Judd Biasiotto. He squatted 603 pounds when he was 44 (and 130 pounds bodyweight…) and did it with all kinds of mental preparation. I think a podcast with the man would be incredibly interesting.

  4. Greg says:

    What is the coupon code for the herbs?

    Also, can the pine pollen extract by used by a 27 year old hard training athlete?

    1. Bryan Hardy says:

      I don’t see why not, you probably wouldn’t want to overdue it in case it triggers down regulation of endogenous hormone production but otherwise I would assume in our estrogen toxic world that it would be quite helpful. Just my two cents.

    2. Absolutely! With good effect too, and legal for sporting organizations.

    Just wanted to say this episode was super interesting and that I love what you do. Keep up the great work!
