#100 – Highlight Show – Recapping The Last 99 Sessions
#100 – Highlight Show – Recapping The Last 99 Sessions
I thought I should take this opportunity in SESSION 100 to highlight the best of the best of the last 99 episodes and share some of my experiences in making this podcast for you all.
To be honest, the show is still evolving, I’m still evolving and the direction of the show is changing slightly.
Since I don’t make my living through being a podcast host, producer and promoter, I have fallen short on some organization aspects that are needed to make a podcast explode. I lose my direction many times when I am chatting on air… in the next 100 episodes, I plan on making the show a 2.0 version for y’all.
A few of the improvements I’ll personally be making an attempt to change are:
- Less “ums”
- More joking
- Digging deeper into the reason why guests think they do
- Getting the information from guest that other podcast interviewers left on the table
My focus will be better and I’ll become more loose with some of my jokes/topics. I think this show be as entertaining as it is educational.
Enjoy the ride and please share the show if you what it to continue for another 100 episodes.

#100 – Highlight Show – Recapping The Last 99 Sessions
You’re listening to The Restoring Human Movement podcast where movement experts discuss the latest evidence-based practices to help you and your clients move with mastery, and now, your host, Dr. Sebastian Gonzales.
Hey guys! It’s Dr. Sebastian Gonzales, your host, with The Restoring Human Movement podcast. This is episode 100. I never thought I would make it to 100 actually and I feel very fortunate that I have been able to get such great guests and great topics to actually fill in the 100. I had a couple of people tell me like “Wow, your show has gotten better over the last 30 or so, or through this year.” I thought I had great guests last year, but I feel like we’re digging a little bit deeper in and getting some good content and dragging it out of these experts, or I hope that I am. I hope my interviewing skills are good enough, but I had a really hard time picking what I was going to do for this #100 because not everyone all the time do I get to 100 or 200 or 300 of anything. I mean, shit, I probably only have like 100 Instagram followers you know. I’m going to celebrate this and I’m going to go over some highlights, mainly my top 5 memorable moments from the podcast so far.
So I’m going to have some clips of the episodes of some people that I interviewed that I thought, “Man, that was a good little segment right there.” It’s funny .. when I was thinking about these, I didn’t actually think about all the clinical stuff that I talked about because it was a little bit dry. I think to be honest with you, I think I have the job of sharing information that are things that people typically don’t care about. It’s dry topics. Most people don’t care about human anatomy and biomechanics and how to restore movement until it affects them, so I think making it entertaining enough is actually, I think, pretty important because they’ll shut off right away I think at least in my observation, so …
Don’t get me wrong, I did learn a ton over the course of the last 100 episodes, and actually it’s really molded how I practice. I learned a ton from speaking with experts like Stuart McGill, Brian Carroll, Michael Bann, Jen Esquer from Doc Jen Fit, Stephan Cazeault, Warren Hammer, Phillip Snell, Quinn Henoch, Michael Shacklock (that was a great one), Tom Michaud, and a good friend Cody Demach was on here as well and I learned a ton from him, and Dr. Justin Dean was in there too. I learned a ton from everybody. I’m not going to share all those parts and you guys can go through the podcasts and listen through to really get the nitty-gritty stuff, but I’m going to share the stuff I thought was fun. To find those podcasts just go onto www.p2sportscare.com and just search the session number or the person’s name you’re looking for and it’s going to pop up (all the transcripts), everything is on there.
The first one I’m going to share is with Dr. Stuart McGill and Brian Carroll. Through this segment Stu was talking about something and then starts bringing up butter and we talked about treehouses. Brian ends up talking about how he ate a whole Cosco pie, so they’re just ratting each other out and thought that was kind of fun, so we’ll go through that.
Podcast #58 was actually a good friend, Tom Fleisher. He has been on a couple of times and he is kind of a bullshitter and you will see we get about 10 minutes into an episode here and the topic was about What is Pilates? Just breaking it down for the public and he starts ripping on me about what celebrity he thinks I look like, so that was a fun bit right there. He would not actually let the whole thing proceed forward until we actually spoke about this thing, so he was prepared for it. I know he had everyone listed.
The third one is going to be #74 with Dr. Scott Dunaway, who is in Nashville, Tennessee, and on Instagram he is chirostrength and he talks about what the use of coconut oil in excess is.
The #95, a recent one, is Michael Bann, and we got on a whole huge side topic talking about Dragonball Z, Dragonball Super, as well as Contra and Super Nintendo, so that one was kind of fun.
And 76, is me and Jesse Macedo have a conversation about the opera and how everyone has to agree about squatting technique.
So I think these will be fun for you guys to listen to and I will do some interjections in the middle before we start so we can have some pretense and I do want to keep reflecting about how fortunate I feel about learning from these people and having this experience. I think a lot of healthcare practitioners would die for the chance to speak to some of these individuals for an hour on and off air, learning the things that made them believe in the type of practice and methods they use, so very, very fortunate to do that.
Before we proceed forward, we are going to go into one of the moments which I have experience throughout my life, and I’m sure everybody has to … You go into a bathroom right? And so I was just recently out of town and I went to Central Coast, California, and all along the way, it’s about a 5-hour drive if you make it in good time. Along the way, you obviously will stop at some bathrooms if you have to and so on, and it seems like every single guy’s bathroom and I talked to some dudes about this … and women … and it’s funny, everyone thinks their bathroom is more wrecked than the other person. I always think if I go into the women’s bathroom, it’s going to be nicer, but I go into the men’s and then you go in there and it’s funny, you’re in there at the urinal and then you see some dude come in and go take a whiz in the stall, even though there’s a urinal open … so … when you go in there and go into a stall and do your business in there, you look on the ground and there’s like all this dribble everywhere.
I don’t really get it and I started thinking about this thing and I’m like, well, maybe they have prostate issues … maybe they have stream flow issues … how can we solve this problem? Because it seems like such a pain in the ass … or perhaps straddle a lit bit further … So here’s the thing that I was thinking on that: Men should learn how to have a better forward fold envelope or anterior fold envelope. There is actually an exercise called the Vele forward lean, which you lean like a pencil forward and kind of rock into your toes and mainly get over the bowl a little bit more, OR maybe they should stop standing with their feet so far from the bowl and straddle the darn thing and go straight down. I mean … There HAS to be a way to solve this thing and I don’t see why public restrooms are such a mess! I mean maybe it’s a movement-related disorder.
So when I tell this to women, they’re like, “No, you should go into a women’s bathroom?” I’m like, “Why? You guys have like couches and stuff and waiting areas and stuff.” They’re like, “Yeah, we got that sometimes, BUT you’d be surprised at people who pee on the seat in there.” I’m like, “How do you that? You nearly sit down?” They’re like, “Well … they hover.” I’m like, “Hmm, if they’re hovering and it kind of goes straight down, how can this actually be on the seat?”
I’ve concluded, and you guys can correct me if I’m wrong, is that people cannot squat far enough or deep enough. So I was thinking how do we solve this? Well, I think that every man should have #1 that anterior fold envelope, or straddle the thing and go straight down. Lean on the wall, put your hand on the wall, it does not matter, just don’t fall forward into it. Women, on the other hand, should be able to have a sumo squat to parallel for time. So however long it takes for them to get their business done, they should be able to sumo squat, straddle the thing, get deep enough and hover. Because I would imagine those people who can’t squat to parallel maybe who have like a 45 squat, all of a sudden, they have a horizontal trajectory and that produces our problem, so … Fitness is going to solve all of our restroom/bathroom issues and that is my “schpill” for this time … so next time you go in the there and see dribbles on the ground or seat, just think about maybe we get that person to squat or lean a little bit more, I think we got this whole thing solved. Now, let’s get into the episode clips and the first is going to be Stu McGill and Brian Carroll.
Now I had on Stu and Brian in Session #63 because we were talking about their book, The Gift of Injury, and I actually found this one from an interviewing standpoint a little bit challenging and they’re both great conversationalists, so they helped me through this thing and we didn’t actually clip anything out. I like to do 100% full go’s if all possible because I think it’s more realistic and we get all the nitty gritty stuff in there, so this was one of the few ones I wrote down a lot of points on because I wanted to make sure I got the story right and then jump back and forth between each one and say “Brian what do you think about that?” or “Brian what do you think about that?” and so on …
Eventually we got to this point where Stu was talking about (and I will let you listen to it) and he was talking about a pound of butter and it made me think that’s an odd thing to think about … why are you thinking about a pound of butter? I can understand a pound of something else, but a pound of butter? I’ve never seen butter that big in my life probably. So they go back and forth a little bit and we find out that Stu lives in treehouses basically and Brian is the reason for any shortage of Cosco apple pies, so here we go into that clip.
Session #63 with Stuart McGill and Brian Carroll:
Stu: If I asked you to hold a pound of butter, outstretched in your hand in front of you, with your elbow at 90 degrees, your bicep would be screaming by tonight. If I asked you to put down the pound of butter, within a few hours, you would probably be pain free. As soon as you can start organizing the body to take those chronic crushers and stresses out … people say “Oh, posture doesn’t matter.” Are you kidding? You know I had an athlete last week who had extensor-driven lifting pain. They were standing there with their knees locked back in extension and I said, “Just relax your knees.” All of a sudden, a slight tilt of the pelvis and their spine came out of that chronic default extension and he said, “Oh! My back pain is gone.” All I did was say, “Soften your knees a little bit.”
Sebastian: I think the biggest thing here is I’m curious why you picked a pound of butter? I’ve never even seen a pound of butter …
Stu: You know I’m going to tell you something Brian. I was down at Brian’s place the last time and we were doing whatever we were doing during the day and his wife, Ria, who is just fabulous, she brought home apple pie from Cosco … you know those king size apple pies … and Brian said, “You want a slice of pie?” And I said, “Well, I’m just a skinny old man now, I’ll just have a sliver of pie.” He cut me a piece and I said, “No, no, no … a third of that.” So I ate my little sliver. He ate the rest. So anyway … I come down for breakfast the next morning, and remember, this is a king size Cosco pie, and I said, “Oh, I’ll have a slice of pie,” and he looks at me and has this great big Cheshire cat grin … He ATE the whole damn thing!
Sebastian: You ate the whole pie?
Brian: (Laughing hysterically)
Sebastian: I don’t want to jump ahead on the whole nutritional part of the whole book, but it sounds like you were not in the cutting phase there.
Brian: Yeah, I had just finished a competition actually and that was a little bit of a reward time, but that is a great recipe for heart disease. You got saturated carbs and saturated fat and man it’s perfect.
Sebastian: I’ve always thought this before … to stop people from eating, let’s just say a tub of ice cream, right? At what point is the diminish and return? Could you just get the taste in your mouth and spit it out? I mean I guess we should just do the rest of this podcast about how you maneuvered an entire pie … what went through your mind when you ate that entire pie?
Brian: It was good and I wanted more until it was gone.
Sebastian: So at the end of the pie did you think … ah, there’s nothing left in life?
Brian: I thought it was a big mistake.
Sebastian: Okay, cool.
Stu: I’m sorry Brian, I didn’t mean to put that out to the world, BUT … we do have a good time.
Sebastian: Yeah, that’s what you need.
Brian: Yeah, we had some great ribeyes, corn-on-the-cob, brussel sprouts with coconut oil and cashews mixed together; it was awesome. Of course, we had some Bluebell ice cream on top of the apple pie, but it was a good night for sure.
Sebastian: I think Stu really deflected away; he pulled the red herring and threw the pie on you, but he didn’t answer that one pound of butter thing …
Brian: Yeah, exactly, yeah … he should have said one pound of apple pie.
Sebastian: Yeah, right.
Stu: I went out in the woods today and I picked some shaggy mane mushrooms and I came home and put a big whack of butter in the fry pan, some garlic, and I fried up those mushrooms and ate them on an onion loaf.
Sebastian: Wait, are you an explorer scout? I don’t think I ever asked this … are you an Eagle Scout, Ranger, or something of that nature? Eating mushrooms sounds dangerous to me.
Stu: Well, we had a conference here this weekend and people flew in from all over the world to do a master assessment course and they had no idea where I lived. I’m a little out there.
Sebastian: Are you? Do you have a treehouse?
Stu: Ugh …
Sebastian: You probably have a treehouse don’t you?
Stu: Ugh … umm …
Sebastian: (Laughs hysterically)
Stu: I’ve got a few … yeah.
Nice. So the next one is we’re going to backtrack a couple of episodes and go to #58 with Tim Fleisher who is an interesting dude because he has a lot of education under his belt. He teaches anatomy at the University of Texas-Austin, Hook ‘Em Horns, I think. I have not been there to visit him since he has been there, but I have to Austin before. He also is educated in diagnostic ultrasound. He is a Pilates instructor and he has his own little clinic there in Austin. So he has spent a whole lot of time in the research lab doing stuff on the pelvic floor and the usage of balloons.
Actually, it was a funny story, because he’s such a BS’er, I don’t know where to believe him half the time or not, so he tells me this story one time where he’s like he was teaching Pilates in Rio, maybe, it was in South America somewhere, but so he’s coming back and he bumped into first class versus coach or economy or wherever he was at and he said, low and behold he sat next to someone he knew, not formally knew, but knew of, and so he was sitting next to Dr. Oz. So he’s telling me this story and I’m like, “You’re so full of shit,” and he’s like, “Yeah, I told Dr. Oz about balloon breathing,” because Tim is doing a whole study on balloon breathing, which he could not comment on a ton yet because they’re still getting back some of the results back, so basically balloon breathing for decreasing pelvic floor issues and then decreasing back pain.
Actually, this intrigued Dr. Oz and he was like, “Yeah, just do some videos and we’ll put it on the show,” so Tim’s telling me about this whole thing and he’s like, “Yeah, I’m just getting ready for Dr. Oz and what kind of video should I do for Dr. Oz,” and I’m like, “You’re so full of shit.” Finally, he sends me these videos, eventually he sent me the clip that was going on there and Dr. Oz was introing him and he did a satellite and I’m like, “No, shit. You’re really doing that?” So he would be the great person to be on there because he’s such a comedy act, but he knows his stuff very well. So let’s go into the clip right now when he is talking about what kind of celebrity I look like because people have told me I look like a celebrity of a couple different people, so he’s going to debunk that.
Sebastian: You’re getting off topic. Tell me about Pilates dammit.
Tim: Wait, wait, wait, before we start and I’m going to apologize for this.
Tim: You do not look like Paul Rudd.
Sebastian: So everyone, Tim realized later after our interview, there was a spurt of Paul Rudd references in the beginning and you just went straight into the Paul Rudd stuff during the episode. I sent you pictures and I got 2 this week, someone said Christian Bale, and this was on YouTube, and the next post/comment was Tom Cruise, and I think the next one was Paul Rudd.
Tim: Yeah, you don’t look like Tom Cruise. Now, Christian Bale … you got the jib of a Christian Bale, like you kind of talk like Christian Bale, you have the same type of mouth movements as him. I can understand that one. Paul Rudd? No way. I wanted to be fair to your audience, so I’m giving a few options of who you actually do look like.
Sebastian: Okay, so we’ll do a spurt of Christian Bale references to come because apparently that’s the only thing, so ….
Tim: From the nose down, you’re Christian Bale.
Sebastian: You know, I should probably take a selfie on the Instagram feed and let people just say what I do or don’t look like.
Tim: That’s an appropriate time to take a selfie. Like half it and have a picture of Christian Bale and yourself.
Sebastian: So comparisons? Okay, okay.
Tim: The first guy … have you ever seen A Christmas Story?
Sebastian: Wait, are you talking about Pilates yet? (laughs)
Tim: No, no, no, no, we’re still on this. I’m not done. There’s two people I’m giving you the option of looking at. One of them is Zack Ward. He played the character Scott Farkus in A Christmas Story.
Tim: You look like him.
Sebastian: Okay, A Christmas Story, I’m looking it up right now. (Laughs) No, this kid’s red-headed and has braces.
Tim: That would work for you. Then, a famous actor from the early 90s as well, a guy by the name of Warwick Davis.
Sebastian: Warwick Davis? This guy looks like the guy from A Night at the Roxbury. Or a small Andre the Giant really.
Tim: Yeah, he played the leprechaun in the movie The Leprechaun.
Sebastian: No, he was the Ewok Wicket in Star Wars it says …
Tim: So there’s your options Sebastian.
Sebastian: Okay, I like Warwick.
Tim: So what you need to do is take over the selfie feature liked where we talked about half the picture and hashtag like for your business mooks, you know hashtag it up.
Sebastian: Okay, maybe I’ll put Warwick and this other kid on there and do a 3-way shot and do a selfie and I’m guaranteeing zero, zero comparison. Can we talk about Pilates? We’re 10 minutes in and we have not spoke a word about Pilates yet (laughs).
We’ll come back to this. I will let you ream on me later.
Tim: Yeah (laughs) so let’s talk a Pilates, what do you want to know?
So the next clip is going to be #74 with Dr. Scott Dunaway, a chiropractor in Nashville, Tennessee and we have talked a lot on the phone since the interview, and I consider him a friend now. I have only met him once in person and we went over and did a little bit of a workout together when I was in Nashville, but yeah, he’s such a personal dude, and if you don’t follow him on Instagram, you probably should. He has a lot of good stuff to share and a lot of good exercises. It was just a brain dump for him for a long time. Now all of a sudden, he has like 45,000 followers; people like him.
So in this one, he tells me a little bit about coconut oil and apparently he was doing some keto coffee with coconut oil or some type of oil, as well as butter, but he was out of butter and so he did a bunch of coconut oil and then he gets into some trouble, so let’s hear what he had to say about that whole experience.
Clip from Session #74 with Dr. Scott Dunaway:
Sebastian: You know I heard actually all you have to do to make a patient better is not hip mobility, you just rub coconut oil on them.
Scott: Coconut oil is good for everything.
Sebastian: Coconut oil … if we would have bought coconut farms, as well as cauliflower farms 5 years ago, we would have been rich by now.
Scott: Most of my experience with coconut oil is when … I always do experimentations, whether it’s with diets, workouts, or anything like that, and so, definitely did some experimentation with coconut oil, and actually now, I use it whenever I’m doing any type of scraping or need some kind of lubricant, I use a lot of coconut oil for that.
Sebastian: So it does make him better.
Scott: Yeah, it does. BUT ingesting coconut oil can get a little dicey. So we all heard about like the butter and coconut oil and tea tea oil in the coffee, and so I would do that, and I still do to a certain extent, BUT … I had a bad experience with it.
So … if you did not know, coconut oil ingested in a larger amount becomes an extreme laxative.
Sebastian: Does it really? How many spoonfuls did you take?
Scott: Ugh … there was no measurement at all, and if there was a measurement, I probably would have gotten that red flag. I took just a teaspoon and I just didn’t have any butter that day, so I’m like “Well, I’m just going to double up on this coconut oil,” and this was on my drive up to Clarksville and so I had about an hour, so I drank my coffee nice and slow, and I’m getting in there with a patient, and I’m thinking Oh, what’s going on? I feel like my stomach is upset. I start sweating and I’m sitting there trying to talk to the patient and I’m a one-man show in my clinic, so for right now, I do everything, it is a very low-volume clinic, so I can’t just say “James can you check you out, nice seeing you, goodbye,” and I sat there and I felt it building up and building up and building up. Each one of my treatments are like 20 to 30 minutes and I felt it pretty early on and thought I’ll just ride this out and by the end of it, it looked like my feet were on fire, and I was sitting there kind of just hopping back and forth. I’m like, “Yep, yep, yep,” and got them checked out, ran to the bathroom, and never did coconut oil in my coffee again to that extent.
Sebastian: Really? That’s good.
Scott: It was tough.
Sebastian: So with the remainder of your coconut oil, now you just cook with it?
Scott: I do cook with it and I still put it in there, but I was like Oh, that makes a lot of sense, so I’m only going to do mostly butter and just a little bit of coconut oil now. It’s all about the dosage with that one, which is with a lot of stuff. BUT coconut oil, if you ever have an issue “going” just gobbled up some coconut oil and don’t travel too far away from the bathroom.
Sebastian: I’ll do it on my day off.
Yeah, good times. Thanks for sharing that Scott. That’s not something everyone would share there, but I get a feeling we’re going to learn a lot about in the near future. You’re going to explode man, I can tell. Actually all you got to do is take your shirt off a little bit more on Instagram and you’re going to be set, maybe shave the chest a little bit. Keep the beard though. Keep the facial hair. I think that’s the icon. You could be the next Stu McGill with that, just make sure your logo includes a fu manchu or whatever you got going on there.
Now, the next one is going to be Session #95, which is a recent one, with Michael Bann, and it’s funny, I came back from a seminar which I told the story before I introed him on his interview, but I came back from this seminar and I’m like Holy crap! I think I just met the smartest person alive. He literally blew my mind like four times that night at dinner. Maybe I was just easily entertained or stunned at the time, I don’t know, BUT he has a lot of great information to share. He’s currently a strength coach, but he’s going to go for his PhD and much more. He’s a smart dude, even though he does not have those higher credentials yet, I think we’re going to hear a lot from him over the years, but as you’re going to see on this clip, I pulled all the clinical stuff out of it and we basically just went into Dragonball Z, Dragonball Super, Contra (up, down, up, down, left, right, A, B, A, B, select, start) and what else did we go into there? I forget. But either way, it’s not clinical in the least. It’s funny you see the passions come out of people. I never watched Dragonball Z, but it’s funny when you bring this up with people who are roughly my age and they just lose their mind about it. So here we go into that.
Clip from Session #95
Michael Bann: Yeah, I’m telling you right now, it saves a lot of time. While you’re doing the calf raise, you can do the biceps curl, and it works great.
Sebastian Gonzales: Well, it looks like you’re just trying to be a Dragon Ball Z character right now. You’re just ramping up like that dude.
Michael Bann: Well, I’m not going to take 47 episodes to go Super San, I’ll do it a lot faster.
Sebastian Gonzales: Wait … is that how long … were there that many episodes of Dragon Ball Z?
Michael Bann: First of all, I’ve watched all the episodes now because Dragon Ball Z is like the best thing ever for cartoons. Dude, there are hundreds of episodes. They just finished up Dragon Ball Super, which is the new series now. I’m a huge nerd.
Sebastian Gonzales: I’ve seen pictures of it and a couple of small animations and I’ve seen that kid in the park in the YouTube video who is just losing his mind?
Michael Bann: I haven’t seen that one.
Sebastian Gonzales: You haven’t seen that one?
Michael Bann: I will watch it later today.
Sebastian Gonzales: It’s great, just like his passion. The kid is like 10 years old and he’s ramping up like 3 different times, like losing his shit, but no I’ve never actually seen it.
Michael Bann: I’ve never seen it. Send it to me.
Sebastian Gonzales: You need to see it, like you will lose your mind.
Michael Bann: I love Dragon Ball Z, I grew up on that stuff.
Sebastian Gonzales: So what is the backstory of Dragon Ball Z?
Michael Bann: Well, Dragon Ball Z is based on a cartoon ball. So Dragon Ball, Goku, he’s basically this alien kid with a tail who was a San. He grows up and does all these cool things and then the next year Dragon Ball Z happens, and basically Dragon Ball Z is a continuation of Dragon Ball. Throughout Dragon Ball Z, he completely changes his power levels, like he powers up and every time he comes across a new challenge, he basically overcomes it and he’s excited for every challenge. He will even say it in the series, he’s like, “I don’t know why I’m excited to fight you. I don’t want to die, but I really want to fight you,” and then he powers up and he constantly wins, except for that one episode with his son, Gohan, but then after that, it went back to Goku being the hero.
Then in Dragon Ball Super, it’s like 15 years after Dragon Ball Z. It’s great, dude, you got to watch it.
Sebastian Gonzales: Is this really a cartoon that has a monologue in the middle? Like he’s thinking to himself or speaking to himself in the corner before he beats people up? He’s so deep.
Michael Bann: (Laughs) That’s really an over-simplified way of looking at it, yeah, but that’s kind of it I guess, totally.
Sebastian Gonzales: Okay, I will watch a couple episodes of Dragon Ball Z and get back to you.
Michael Bann: Great. Everyone is going to know how nerdy I am right now, fantastic.
Sebastian Gonzales: Wait, so besides Dragon Ball Z, what is the other type of T-shirt you would wear?
Michael Bann: The other type of T-shirt?
Sebastian Gonzales: Yeah, because I know you got a Dragon Ball Z T-shirt probably?
Michael Bann: No I don’t have a Dragon Ball shirt actually. I should have one.
Sebastian Gonzales: Yeah, why not?
Michael Bann: I’ve never thought about it. I don’t know.
Sebastian Gonzales: If I said the words up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, A, B, A, B, start what would you think?
Michael Bann: It’s A, B, A, select, start, and get 30 lives.
Sebastian Gonzales: Is that Contra?
Michael Bann: Yeah man, but you got to hit select start because you would mess that up.
Sebastian Gonzales: Actually recently last year I was staying somewhere and someone’s Netflix was already on the TV and I wanted to put mine on and it was in Spanish, and I can’t read Spanish, so I’m thinking how the hell do I log out of this thing?
So I go onto to Google and check it out and literally to get out of it is you take the little thing and you do up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right … and I’m like you got to be shittin’ me? So that’s what it was, it logs you out, it worked.
Michael Bann: That’s awesome.
Nice! Thanks Michael for being such a good sport about all that. Good times, good times.
Next, we have Session #76, it was a discussion about the opera with Jesse Macedo. Jesse actually had another great quote in there … “Don’t let your hip flexibility be a spinal liability.” I really like that, so that was going to be his gravestone quote, so this was actually a lot of fun. He came into the studio and we had a couple beers and got to have a little bit more face-to-face interaction. A lot of these ones are satellite through Zoom, so me and Jesse had a really good time and seeing people in person and being in the studio I think produces a better and more entertaining show honestly, so here we go with Jesse’s clip.
Clip from Session #76 with Jesse Macedo.
Jesse: You start to get in tune by just trying different things, explore, you know? If you explore a little bit more, you’re going to understand hmm, let me put my weight that way, that feels so awkward. Whenever you try to rebalance somebody, it always feels like they’re going to way too much to the other side, does that make sense? They’re like, “I feel like I’m putting way too much weight on my left leg,” but your spine is neutral dude.
Sebastian: This is wrong, it doesn’t feel right. That’s how I feel about going to an opera or playhouse … something is wrong.
Sebastian: I heard it’s actually bad form to like you know when you go to a movie and have to get up and just walk out, or like at a baseball game, you’re like I got to go to the bathroom, in a play … it’s like you can’t leave. Like you got to piss in your seat. You just can’t leave.
Jesse: (Laughs) No way.
Sebastian: Can you crawl out? NO, because they’ll see you on stage.
Jesse: (Laughs) That environment is not conducive to allowing you to move.
Sebastian: No, not at all, but if you got to like fidget … I mean what if you have some back pain and you’re like moving around?
Jesse: No, no … they don’t care. They’re there to put on a show for you and you better get focused.
Sebastian: I know, I know … but they need more intermissions. I mean I like what they do … but man … I think I just have a problem. I don’t have the attention span nor do I understand what’s going on.
Jesse: (Laughs) You got to remember a lot of these operas were made like a hundred years ago, right?
Sebastian: Yeah, right. So I was watching a movie the other day and there was an opera on it. This lady was like singing, and this guy’s singing, and number one–I don’t like singing with a lot of treble, so I had a problem with that. Second is, I can’t understand the language. Third is she’s singing it so loudly, I can’t understand the words she’s saying, even if it was in English. How are all these people getting something out of this? I don’t get it?
Jesse: (Laughs) No way. That’s an unwritten rule between you and the rest of the audience is to just not say anything and sit there through it.
Sebastian: It’s like when you go to a museum and look and it’s like amazing. Everyone is like, “Oh, it’s amazing,” and you’re like, “What does it mean?” … “I don’t know?”
Jesse: (Laughs) Exactly.
Sebastian: I don’t get it.
Jesse: That’s how it’s going down right there. You all made a little pact. Y’all made a pact.
Sebastian: A pinky pact. So when you’re at work and seeing someone squat and one of the other trainers or coach?
Sebastian: Okay, so one of the trainers come over and you’re like, “Hey, do you see anything with this squat?” and they’re like, “I know I should not be saying yes right now, but I don’t know what do you see Joe?”
Jesse: (Laughs) You mean like getting everybody on the same page from what it should look like? Yeah, that’s one of the hardest things to do, absolutely.
Thanks again Jesse, that was an amazing time. I really had a good time getting to know you even better.
So that was Session #100–a recap on the Top 5 moments from the first 99 episodes of The Restoring Human Movement Podcast, which actually started as the Performance Place Sportscare Podcast, so we did a little bit of rebranding around I think Session #91, which I think this has a better feel of what we’re trying to accomplish here.
So going forward, I guess if you guys are wondering what’s next for the show … I would love to have some good organization honestly. I am not going to say that I don’t organize these, but since I still do run a private practice and I see patients all week, and create a lot of other content; articles, e-products, or online courses, and my goal for my website is to be able to have 3 or 5 free email course for things like we have foot and ankle pain coming up, and we have chronic hamstring tightness with runners, low back pain, shoulder pain, and I am getting all those made. I am creating them and so I don’t always have time to organize these podcasts in a good way, but I think what I would imagine in the long term with the podcasts is that I would love to have 2 sessions a week, which are interviews of a topic. I know I did this in the beginning of the year, we had a hamstring month, then I think the second month was knee month, so I had two experts, as well as some anatomy, biomechanics, and some fundamental things that people should understand about that stuff. So I think the two episodes in the month are going to be more patient based; things you can share with your patients to get them to better understand the questions they already ask you. The other ones are going to be more for Hey, I want to learn a lot more than I actually knew. I get that again through interviewing people, so if you guys have great people to interview and you think they have some revolutionary things they haven’t heard on the show before, I would love to hear who they are.
So if you would like to, I would love for you to email me. My direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will definitely respond back. So let me know who you want to hear about because I make this show specifically for you; although, I learned a ton from it as well and have a good time doing it.
Lastly, again, all the show notes are on www.p2sportscare.com and go through and check out all those free courses I have. I have a ton of articles, references, a ton of videos (I mean I think the YouTube channel has 12,000 people following at this point) and more than anything I want people to find this content and share it. I want you to share it and make it useful. I love creating stuff, but it is really frustrating as a content creator to not have any of your stuff catch traction. A lot of mine does catch traction, but it’s funny to actually see the ones that actually catch traction are the ones I never thought that would.
If you agree with the things I’m saying on those articles, e-courses, and what-not, share ‘em. That’s why they’re created. That was the best way to give back to me if you’re looking to give back to me. So …
Lastly, be good to each other and leave people better than how you found them and tune in for the next 100 episodes of The Restoring Human Movement Podcast. See ya.
