New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
-Book – The Way Of The Superior Man: My friend, Chris Holder, at the recent RKC kettlebell certification, recommended this book to me and…*holy hell* – it is knocking my socks off. I am now only halfway done, but am already highly recommending it. In the book, author David Deida explores the most important issues in men's lives “from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity authenticity and freedom.” He shares lessons on how a man can grow spiritually while passionately tussling with the challenges of women, work, and sexual desire. These are topics near and dear to my heart and I consider this book a must-read for every dude and possibly ladies, too (and if anyone has a connection to David, let me know as I think he’d be a great podcast interviewee!).
-Sleep Hack 1 – Grounding/Earthing Paired with Chlorella or Charcoal: I recently interviewed Nicolas Pineault, the author of the excellent book “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs: How to Fix Our Stupid Use of Technology”. Although I didn’t yet release the podcast episode, Nicolas introduced me to the concept that when one uses a grounding or earthing mat or device to sleep, that it actually increases “glymphatic drainage”, which is the cleanup process of the central nervous system. Unfortunately, this can also release a bunch of metals and toxins into neural tissue, and so if you are using grounding or earthing, you should consider taking chlorella (e.g. a big handful of this stuff) or activated charcoal prior to bed.
-Sleep Hack 2 – CBD Vape Pen: If you are going to use CBD for lung delivery, you should vape it, not smoke it. Vaping allows near instant delivery and instant experience of all the benefits of a compound, without producing thick, clinging smoke the same way combustion does, and without requiring tar or other chemicals present – annoying chemicals that cause damage to your body. When you are drawing the CBD’s into your mouth and lungs with the vapor, you experience almost immediate absorption into your bloodstream because the thin membranes of the lungs soak up the CBD right away. The beautiful, fully functional BioCBD+ organic hemp vape cartridge gives you 200mg of pure organic CBD vape cartridge and battery, filled with an extra strength formula with no chemical fillers like most vape pens have (e.g. propylene glycol and other nasties). Every puff gives you a precise 2mg dose of pure, extra-strength hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) oil, with great hemp taste and no extra additives. This is amazing for sleep, relaxation and de-stressing from anxiety or a busy workday. You can grab one here and use coupon code “ben10” to save 10%.

The Russian Kettlebell Cert is one of the deepest dives I've ever taken into how to move properly with a #kettlebell. I learned everything from swings to Turkish get-ups to snatches to cleans to presses and I held a kettlebell for a longer period of time than I ever have in my life! I also received treatment from @uscryo_walnutcreek on my strained back, which kept me going. If you're kettlebell training and mobility obsessed like me, I couldn't recommend this certification more. Visit @dragondoorpublications to learn more: BenGreenfieldFitness.com/dragondoor I train with @kettlebellkings , the first company ever to offer totally free shipping and a lifetime warranty on all kettlebells, and they are offering a big, fat discount on any of their kettlebells, which are already a slammin’ deal.
