In the podcast episode “Shattering World Swim Records On 25-Piece Fried Chicken Buckets, Climbing Mountains While Eating Defatted, Vegan, Grass-Fed, Argentinian Liver Anhydrate & Much More” I interviewed athlete and supplement designer Craig Dinkel about a special blood oxygenating formula called “Biotropic”.
After that interview, I received an onslaught of questions about everything from grass-fed liver anhydrate to cordyceps senesis to hidden benefits of beetroots, the detoxification properties of algae, whether it’s really true you can get all the benefits of blood doping without actually blood doping and more.
Then appeared once again in an episode on “How To Legally Dope Your Blood“.
Today's Craig's back for a fifth time. He's taking on one of the hardest hikes in America, the Sierra High Route and doing it solo, in August. It's an off the grid, roughly 200-mile difficult hike at altitude, between 9,000 and 12,000ft, with huge elevation gain and loss every day, along with zero trails, navigating solely via map and compass. It's quite serious and rough.
