Ryron Gracie is kind of a big deal.

 

One could even say this week’s Brute Podcast guest has Brazilian jiu-jitsu in his blood, as this legend in the sport also shares ancestry with its original creator, Hélio Gracie (yup, he’s grandfathered in—literally).

 

Listening to Ryron talk, you can tell he is a calm, collected and self-aware individual—all of which he attributes to his experiences training in the sport of jiu-jitsu. For him, it’s more than a sport. It’s a lifestyle.

Students, you’re going to want to get your notebooks ready because Brent “The Professor” Fikowski is taking us to school on the Brute Podcast this week.

 

Brent is a three-time CrossFit Games athlete, placing second in the 2017 Games, and after this episode, you’ll understand how he’s remained one of the sport’s top four male athletes since 2016.  

 

Even though Brent is “The Professor,” he brings a mindset to the game that can’t be taught—the mindset of a competitor. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t had his ups and downs in the sport.


Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about what you can do to emulate that mindset, what it’s like to compete against the fittest athletes in the world and how he almost left CrossFit in 2015.  

 

Topics:

 

01:00 – Sanctioned events

06:20 – Early competitive career

26:50 – Starting CrossFit

35:20 – Transformation year

43:20 – First experience at the CrossFit Games

1:16:30 – “The Professor Project”

What exactly does it take these days to be nicknamed the Mad Scientist? Are we talking Doc Brown in a DeLorean cruising through a space-time continuum, or is it more of a beaker and test tube vibe?

 

Whatever the case, we’re stoked to have the modern-day Mad Scientist and world-renowned strength athlete and coach Chris Duffin on the Brute Strength podcast this week for his second episode.

 

In Chris’ first episode, we learned about the upbringing that shaped his mentality for creating Kabuki Strength. This week, we’re talking shop on increasing your strength, the correlation between whiskey and deadlifts, working around your injuries and the benefits of a ShouldeRök (not to be confused with the popular dance movement based on rocking your shoulder back and forth—if you’re feeling it though, do you).

 

 

Topics:

 

01:20 – “Whiskey and Deadlifts”

10:30 – Shiny object syndrome

15:20 – Minimum effective dose principle

22:00 – Benefits of a ShouldeRök

54:30 – Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)

58:00 – Hamstring tears and rehab
