1. Radiation levels from flying
Hey Robb and Greg,
Lets skip the knob-slobbing and get straight to the question: is radiation from frequent flying something to be concerned about?
I am an airline crew member and just found it about increased radiation levels while flying. Apparently European airline companies have a max limit they allow their employees to gather annually (no clue how they do it) but we don’t have any kind of restrictions or ways to track it. I’m seeing a lot of mixed reviews in terms of how much is dangerous and how much a flight may expose you to.
Assuming it is a concern, what are some things I can do to combat that besides quitting? I see things like spirulina and bee pollen being suggested, any thoughts?
2. Renegade Diet
Hi Robb, I am looking into Jason Ferruggias’s Renegade Diet. He lists you as a reference, which I like, but there are no referenced studies to back up his book. I suffer from frequent constipation so I like his emphasis on optimizing digestion, but do you think it is a worthwhile endeavor to try it out?
3. Clean Deadlift vs Deadlift
Thanks for the awesome podcast guys, it has been a valuable education tool for me.
My questions is about teaching new athletes to do the clean in a CrossFit group class environment and how much I should get into the weeds with the first pull. I have read the second edition of Greg’s “Olympic Weightlifting”. It does a great job of explaining the difference between the two and why there is a difference.
However, the difference was never stressed to me by any previous coach. Back in 2009 I tried to ask why it was different at my CrossFit level one seminar and basically was told it is not. I have started to suspect that it is just glossed over because in a non-weightlifting specific environment it is just too complex and less important than other faults such as pulling early with the arms or not getting the hips full open etc.
It does seem a bit confusing to teach new lifters to do the two lifts differently as they already have so much on their plates. At times I feel it may be easier just to drill the mid-hang to death and not worry so much about how they get there.
On the other hand I have what is in effect blank slates and I don’t want to waste the opportunity to teach them correctly. I do wish I was taught correctly.. and I guess that could be my answer right there!
I ordered “Olympic Weightlifting for Sports” just before asking this question and hope that maybe I can glean some insight there.
Thanks so much!
4. Police Fitness
Robb, I am a cop and for the most part my job is not very demanding physically. Hours of sitting in a car or in front of a computer typing reports. With that being said, there are brief moments of all out physical work with little to no notice that randomly occur. Do you have any recommendations for exercising to prepare for this in order to minimize injury risk? I currently do heavy lifting 3 times a week, walking/hiking, and sprints/plyo once a week. Thanks for all you do and keep up the good work.
5. Paleo girl considering not-so-paleo-tits
Hi Robb & Greg,
I hope the subject line made the cut I searched for “breast” in your podcasts but nothing related to large fake boobs.
I’m in my mid-twenties and am considering a breast augmentation, saline preferred but possibly the new solid “gummy” silicone option. I know it isn’t Paleo but having larger breasts can be so much more fun!
I’m 5’1 and 110 lbs. Aside from food sensitivities (gluten/sugar malabsorption) I’m healthy and am very in control of my health through my choices in food, thanks to you.
I wanted to know what your thoughts are and what someone with autoimmune issues should be aware of before putting something foreign into their breasts. I also have no history of breast cancer in my family. Thanks!
Tiny, but decent
6. Hunter Gatherer’s, players or monogamous
Your the best.
So I was wondering whether hunter gatherers were players or formed life long relationships with a single partner?
Did you my caveman Grandad swing his stuff round the camp whilst my cave lady grandma put it about? Or did they form monogamous relationships with a single partner?
Why’s this important? Well depending on the answer I get I could use this as a justification for my behaviour.
7. Do, I dare, an IGF-1 deer?
Firstly you guys rock.
So what’s the deal with deer antler velvet?
Here are a couple of links:
It contains a banned substance, a growth hormone called “insulin-like growth factor 1,” or IGF-1. Since this one ingredient is banned can we assume there is some benefit in consumption of deer antler velvet supplements?
Or is it simply another crock of shit example of where not to allocate ones time & money?
8. HNPP and nerve regeneration
Hi Robb and Greg,
I’ll make this short and sweet. I’ve been diagnosed with a hereditary neuropathy with pressure palsy. Aside from quitting my high stress/long hours desk job, kicking in the BJJ bucket and keeping paleoness at 100%, what can I do to get use of my shoulder and foot back?
Lower omega 6’s? ALA? B vitamins? Carnosine?
Please help a paleo brother get back to showering without his mum. It kinda sucks.
9. The Marshall Protocol (Vit. D)
Hey Rob, long time listener, first time questioner. My wife has hypothyroid and has resisted taking vitamin D because of the idea’s in the Marshall Protocol. What are your thoughts on the Marshall Protocol for autoimmune diseases- especially as they relate to vitamin D supplementation? Thanks,
