Transcript of Lockdown Version Episode
Andy: All proper. All proper. Breaker one 9 or welcome to the International MeatSpace Ban podcast. As a result of we’re at present in a International MeatSpace Ban. You aren’t allowed to depart your private home. Speak to folks. All the pieces is digital, together with this specific dialogue.
Ryan: Lock it down, lock it down. That’s proper. Loopy instances proper now.
Andy: Loopy instances. It’s truly fascinating. Once I opened Twitter, it’s humorous as a result of the world is discovering Zoom. The world is discovering instruments that principally, have been a part of my on a regular basis life for a very long time. About 70% of my social interplay occurs by video chat.
Ryan: I truly suppose let’s imagine a bigger share. I’m prepared to say like, so far as like each of us, you recognize, I imply, since we sort of have like a web-based enterprise and all, yeah.
Andy: So anyway, yeah, that’s the place we’re at is correct now. Lots of people, and if you happen to’re listening to this, you’re most likely in a state of affairs as a result of on your personal security and that of individuals round you, you need to not be going out very a lot.You don’t need to be in massive crowds of individuals. You don’t need to be spreading issues round, and so for most individuals on the planet, that is an unfamiliar state of affairs. And particularly if you happen to’re speaking about, you recognize, issues like health, issues like your psychological well being, issues like how one can truly be productive and get issues achieved.
Properly, the excellent news is that Ryan and I and GMB, our complete staff, we’ve spent the final 10 years principally studying find out how to be efficient beneath the circumstances, which happened unintentionally as a result of we simply occur to be dwelling in other places. However we’ve. Examined and iterated on these items. We’ve got a staff of individuals in, you recognize, 5 continents right here that we work with on daily basis and you recognize, 65,000 purchasers that we’ve.
We’ve examined our strategies for coaching and studying to studying to coach your self at dwelling. By the web without having any individual standing over you, correcting your discussion board. So we’re fairly good at these things and we’ve some actually good ideas that we’re going to be sharing with you about staying sane and likewise what truly works for you in your coaching.
Ryan: Yeah, completely. , we’re not going to enter, you recognize, what to do with the virus and issues like that. We’re not docs. We’re not something like that. It’s simply be sensible, be protected, and be thoughtful of different folks. And I feel we are able to simply go away it at that. So let’s get into the stuff that we’re actually good at and we’re going to begin off by: staying sane. I feel that’s actually the large factor, proper?
Andy: And to not interrupt you, we’re not saying that both, that we’re specialists on sanity or actually fashions of it. Nevertheless from what we hear, these may aid you. Sorry, keep it up.
Ryan: Thanks for including that. That was essential level. However yeah, making an attempt to remain sane, is one thing that Andy and I’ve been engaged on once more, like over 10 years and I don’t know if I’m sane or not, however we’ll simply get into it. I feel the large factor too is that this understanding that, there’s going to be change and also you simply need to give attention to the issues that you may management. That’s it. And sure, being concerned about different issues I get that and it may be scary, however there are issues straight in entrance of you that you may management. It’s actually going to assist out. And that is sort of what we need to speak about right now, these issues. And so one of many main issues is your routine. And so you possibly can focus in your routine, and setting your self up for a routine even if you are beneath lock down and also you’re restricted to being in in your house goes to be an important a part of with the ability to proceed and work by this. And so determine one thing that’s going to be good for you. You could be by your self, like actually, you won’t be married, you won’t have children or issues like that is going to be particularly difficult for you, however once more, that is the place routine can come into play. After which additionally accountability, not just for your self, however seeing if you happen to can, you recognize hook up with another person on-line and hold one another accountable, verify in, give one another some challenges or issues like that, hold it enjoyable.
And once more, after we say verify in with folks, we’re not simply speaking about social media. That’s, I feel, particularly vital, to be trustworthy. Keep off of there as a lot as potential. Yeah. There’s some loopy stuff on it. I imply, truthfully, you don’t should be including gasoline to the hearth.
Andy: Yeah. That is one thing that’s actually, actually vital. I do know lots of people once they begin working from dwelling or in a state of affairs like this, they, they crave the social interplay. And so our first intuition is to go onto Twitter or Fb or Instagram as a result of that’s the place we are likely to socialize on-line, proper? However what I might counsel is staying off of these items.
I imply, you don’t have to remain off of them totally, however don’t take a look at that as your main technique of social interplay as a result of what you’re doing, what you’re going to see taking place there may be, let’s say that you simply’re, you’re questioning, you recognize, how your people again dwelling are doing, proper? So that you go and also you take a look at your mother’s account and also you see the factor she’s posted and also you may touch upon there after which two hours later what occurs? You get a notification and it’s, you’re loopy. A conspiracy principle, Uncle Charlie who has replied to your remark with like a 9 paragraph screed that’s simply going to piss you off and make you hate life, proper? Don’t do that.
Fb will not be a great mannequin of precise social interplay, and it’s not a manner that you may go deep and actually verify in with folks. If you wish to have real connections with folks and interactions with folks, I counsel, two issues. One is electronic mail and the opposite is textual content message, whichever onem will depend on the character of the connection. However what I might do if I had been new to making an attempt to have relationships with folks from a distance, proper? That is one thing I’ve been doing for a very long time, so this works very nicely.
First, simply sit down and begin, write out an inventory of individuals which might be actually vital to you, folks whose relationships imply loads to you, that you simply get worth out of, that you simply really feel such as you’re shut with that individual. It feels kinda sort of foolish to have to try this. However the factor is, if you happen to go on Fb and simply begin wanting, you’re going, you recognize your loved ones members and your shut buddies are blended up along with your second roommate from school, and also you’ve acquired 5,000 buddies. You get 1 / 4 of the way in which by the record and also you’re abruptly simply exhausted.
So, skip that. Simply get all a bit of paper and a pen and begin writing down the relationships that actually means one thing to you. After which suppose, is that this an individual that I’m in an identical time zone with, that I ought to contact by textual content? Or is that this an individual that lives additional away that I ought to contact her electronic mail? After which that is from there. It’s easy. Simply shoot him a be aware, proper?
Don’t possibly do all of them directly as a result of then you definitely’re going to be actually overwhelmed when everyone begins replying. However you recognize, possibly ship two emails a day to any individual that’s near you that doesn’t reside close by and you recognize, ship possibly one or two texts to folks that you simply need to verify in on.
And that manner you don’t need to provide you with authentic content material. You don’t need to discover a humorous meme. You don’t need to. Have a joke or fear about what another person goes to chime in with. You’re going to have a real interplay and you’ll verify in with folks and say, Hey, how’s it going? Like, are you okay?
Proper? Or no matter. , Hey, I’m fearful about your mother, or you recognize, are the children out of faculty or no matter. Any of these issues. And you’ll shortly and simply verify in with folks. You possibly can have a personal, actual shut human connection and communication and also you don’t have to fret about any of this loopy stuff. In order that’s my lengthy dialogue of this level of, you recognize, don’t attempt to change actual human interplay with social media websites as a result of they’re not made for that. As a substitute, use extra old fashioned instruments, contact folks straight and foster the precise relationship you have got. That I feel is an important factor that it’s essential to do.
So for, for sanity, socially, you recognize, don’t suppose that you simply’re going to have the ability to change like, massive scale social interplay with Fb. It simply doesn’t work that manner. Deal with the shut relationships. That’s the place you’re actually going to get extra leverage.
Ryan: Hmm. Good, great things. Personally, I exploit WhatsApp. That’s simply me, you recognize, and so I simply have a really small, very small record, if you’ll, of those that I talk with on WhatsApp. And people are the folks, like for instance, my very shut pal again in Wichita, Kansas, Gavin , that’s how we talk in on a regular basis. Anyhow. So, one other manner to consider it’s, who’s an individual that you simply wish to do a protracted distance automobile trip with that you might truly deal and deal with, speaking with this individual and likewise that you simply need to study extra about that individual. So nice. Nice stuff you stated there, Andy. I actually prefer it.
Different factor too. So we’ve talked about having that routine, specializing in routine. Actually no matter, it doesn’t matter to be completely trustworthy. Proper now it’s simply organising a routine. , checking in with as one other individual that we’re simply speaking about. The opposite factor is do bodily issues. So that is, that is vital, so keep bodily energetic, however I need slightly caveat right here is that don’t. I feel that you need to be setting any new private data for issues or suppose that it’s essential to be, you recognize, killing your self and, and nailing this routine or no matter throughout this time.
I feel it’s very, essential to know that there’s a whole lot of stress taking place round you proper now by including extra train, by making an attempt to push your self too arduous, you’re solely including undue stress. That is going to interrupt down the immune system. And it’s truly gonna simply not be good for you, anyone.
So, I’m actually, actually encourage you to focus extra about exploration, enjoyment, and doing bodily issues that you may in your own home, round your own home, outdoors. That is one other level I feel is essential. If you will get outdoors into nature, and by nature, if you happen to simply have slightly park throughout the road, go over climb a tree, hang around, no matter, you recognize, simply get outdoors, actually simply take a look at the grass and simply chill a bit.
, do some bear walks, monkey or no matter out within the grass can be possibly simply adequate, however simply keep energetic with the issues that you simply’re doing. So I simply actually suppose that’s vital once more, to say, don’t take a look at this as a time to try to set new , bodily targets or issues like that. Simply be energetic. Attempt to keep in a frame of mind the place you possibly can take pleasure in no matter exercise that you simply’re doing, whether or not or not it’s in your own home or round your own home proper now.
Andy: Yeah, completely. , it’s vital to know find out how to navigate bodily the area that you simply’re in. And most of us in our common routines are, our bodily exercise tends to be after we’re going from one place to a different, commuting and that sort of factor, proper?
So if you happen to’re not doing that, then the tendency is, and this once more, that is when any individual, when most individuals for the primary time attempt working from dwelling or one thing, what occurs is that they understand that, Oh, I simply observed I’ve spent six hours on my couch with out transferring in any respect. Proper? I actually, Oh, I’ve been needing to go to the lavatory for 3 hours, however I’ve been subconsciously holding it as a result of I simply didn’t need to rise up and proper.
This occurs. It’s humorous, however we’ve all been there. This can be a factor that it truly is true. And I feel extra persons are experiencing this now. Proper, however you additionally need to learn to navigate the area you’re in. In case you are staying inside too. And meaning, you recognize, study to rise up and stroll round your self, study to, you recognize, go arise and put your laptop computer on the kitchen counter and work that manner for slightly bit if that’s what you’re doing.
, it’s essential to transfer round in your area. And we’re not simply speaking about train as a result of there’s extra to life than train. We at all times say this, even in one of the best of instances, your bodily exercise shouldn’t be train. And we wrote a fantastic information that has like 57 non-exercise bodily actions that you are able to do.
Most of those you are able to do at dwelling and don’t even require any area. You don’t must put in your fricking Lycra to do them. ,you are able to do them in no matter garments you’re sporting. However that is all a part of studying to create a greater routine for your self that’s not based mostly on commuting, however relies on, you recognize, dwelling within the area you have got.
And this, this factor was routines is so vital. Rise up, bathe, change garments. Eat some meals. I don’t care if you happen to suppose intermittent fasting is the optimum primary finest manner. , make your self a meal within the morning. In case your meal is espresso, that’s cool, that’s high quality, however make your self one thing.
Put together one thing for your self. Eat it. be aware of these items and do them on a schedule. And that is how you retain your self from going, stir loopy , and verify in with folks recurrently. Inform them that you simply’re, you’re nonetheless doing all of your routine, you recognize, share, share pointers and recommendation, issues that you simply like doing.
, that is how you retain your self from going loopy and attempt to keep calm. Go to mattress at an everyday time. It doesn’t matter if you happen to don’t must rise up to get in your automobile for rush hour. Go to mattress at an everyday time. In case you change your common 10 o’clock bedtime with two hours of scrolling by Twitter, you’re not going to be higher off mentally.
Or if you happen to’re not going to sleep nicely otherwise you’re simply, once more, it’s going to interrupt it down. ? And that is one other factor, truly simply on that be aware, our buddies at The Prepared State, Kelly Starrett has been speaking about on his Instagram. Plenty of actually useful ideas with down-regulating, controlling your stress ranges and find out how to launch this pressure that we construct up bodily and mentally. Take a look at their stuff and the guidelines that they’ve been sharing.
Ryan: I’ve personally discovered it actually useful. Oh, it’s fantastic. The Prepared State. Yeah. So different factor I need to say about that too is it is a good alternative since you talked about ingesting espresso within the morning. This can be a nice alternative to be trustworthy, to simply sit down and truly take pleasure in your espresso.
In case you don’t usually do this, as an alternative of simply pounding down the espresso to rush and get to the place it’s essential to be going, it is a nice alternative to simply actually simply sit down Concentrate on what’s occurring. One thing else too, that you recognize, each you and I like doing, Andy, and that’s discovering new music.
So it is a nice alternative proper now for, I don’t know if you happen to’re on Spotify, it actually doesn’t matter what you employ, however sort of taking place that rabbit gap and testing some new music or possibly going again and discovering some music that you simply used to take pleasure in and also you forgot about or one thing. However this is a chance so that you can actually get deep with that. the cool factor about that, it’ll take your thoughts off of all the pieces. You’ve gotten enjoyable. Perhaps you rise up, dance round, you recognize, no matter. It’s, it’s actually a fantastic alternative. And if you happen to take a look at it that manner, proper now, don’t take a look at it as, Oh, I’m caught at dwelling. I’d be like, candy. There’s alternative for me to love try some new stuff.
Andy: And for anyone that’s on the market considering, however I don’t like music. I’ve one query for you. Are you even human? What, why, what? What’s, okay, transferring on. Yeah, I like the thought of being caught at dwelling as a result of I’ve like 200 books on my record I’m making an attempt to get to.
Ryan: Books! Ah, nice time. Let’s shortly speak about staying calm. I need to contact on this briefly. We did a podcast earlier than the place I mentioned respiration methods. So, since you do have slightly bit time proper now, return, try that podcast on respiration. There are some methods I defined in there that may aid you so far as, if you happen to may really feel a bit your coronary heart charge going up a bit, how one can, you recognize, carry your self down slightly bit when it comes to respiration. That was a great time to return and hearken to that. So, let’s transfer on. Let’s speak about coaching. Okay. So. You’re at dwelling and also you don’t have your health club, and you recognize what? It’s completely cool, proper? You’re going to be high quality.
Andy: We might be fairly silly if we didn’t go on and point out the truth that our applications are freaking superior. We, like I stated, we’ve been, we’ve been working towards find out how to make applications that work for folks. On their very own. Taking a look at a laptop computer for 10 years. We’re fairly good at this. We’ve gotten a whole lot of suggestions from folks. We’ve gotten lots of people which have stated, I’ve by no means been capable of comply with a web-based program earlier than which have achieved a number of applications of ours.
So what we’re about to speak about is, a few of the ideas, a few of the issues that we’ve sort of constructed into our stuff and a few of the, the type of parameters that our philosophy of programming relies round. So. These items could be very, very confirmed out by our materials. In case you don’t need to purchase our applications, I imply, you’re loopy, however that’s utterly your determination.
Use these concepts with different materials that you simply’re utilizing and it’ll, it can make it more practical. and if you happen to simply need the simple method to do it then by our stuff. However in any other case. So let’s get into a few of the issues. I feel the primary place that we have to begin is that, identical to we stated, with a social interplay and with routines and stuff, don’t attempt to change what you’re used to doing with an at-home model. Okay. So there’s a few type of like unhealthy, poor logic patterns that that falls into. However there one is that, don’t, don’t suppose that that is, don’t assume that is short-term. Don’t assume that that is going to blow over in a few weeks and also you’re simply going to be again to the health club, knocking out PR’s.
Okay? That’s most likely not going to occur. however even whether it is. Take a look at this as a time to do one thing completely different. Some novelty, name it a de-load in order for you, however don’t attempt to mimic what you’re doing elsewhere in a unique state of affairs. what you find yourself with is a half-ass model of standard, and also you miss out on the chance to essentially make the most of what you truly can do of the strengths of the state of affairs.
So primary factor is that we at all times speak about coaching cycles. We at all times speak about issues when it comes to having a type of objective for what you need to obtain in any specific period of time. Let’s say that you simply assume that that is going to be a small two week at dwelling coaching cycle if you wish to, if you wish to name it that, that’s cool.
If it goes longer, that’s high quality too. However take a look at this as its personal coaching cycle and as an alternative of making an attempt to imitate what you usually do, consider what can I obtain. At dwelling with out a whole lot of tools. What can I do this’s good for me that I can obtain now that I usually wouldn’t do if I had been going to the health club or if I had been doing my sport or if I had been doing the issues I usually do?
How can I see this as a possibility to do the issues I’ve been laying aside? To deal with some issues that I do know I’ve acquired weaknesses in, to handle some, you recognize, one other objective that I’ve by no means had the time to pursue. That is the time for that. Primary, don’t mimic, make this its personal coaching session, a coaching cycle, and plan it that manner. Let’s take a look at some issues which might be worthwhile for a house coaching cycle. So some targets, that we are likely to suggest and a few examples of issues that you simply may do.
Ryan: Sure. Okay. Properly, one factor, particularly throughout this time proper now, take a look at what you are able to do on daily basis. Now, truthfully, in, in my case, I at all times do one thing on daily basis. It doesn’t imply I’m hitting it arduous on daily basis, however I’m simply transferring round slightly bit. And so, for instance. Let’s say, since we’re going into this instance of issues you are able to do, let’s simply take a look at locomotion and handstand, okay? And we’ll simply hold it tremendous easy. And the explanation why is since you don’t want any tools, okay?
You may want to maneuver your furnishings out of the way in which slightly bit. That’s high quality. Okay. However you are able to do this at dwelling. It’s completely cool, and that is one thing that you are able to do on daily basis slightly bit, slightly bit. You’re going to be getting higher. You’re going to be bettering your power or flexibility in your management, additionally it’s going to be enjoyable. Okay, so handstands and locomotion. And so how would you do that? Properly, that’s actually as much as you and you recognize. We’ve got all the pieces laid out for you. In case you go to YouTube, try, the YouTube or pardon me, the, the handstand video that we’ve. It’s all laid on the market.

I’d been posting some, some comply with alongside kind periods anyhow, alongside this, however, you recognize, take a look at locomotion, handstand, and that’s one thing you are able to do on daily basis alongside the traces of flexibility as nicely.
Andy: So, maintain on. Simply so you recognize, and we’re going to hyperlink to this on our notes for the present too. So, comply with the hyperlink, go to the web site, and we’ve, if you happen to don’t know the place to get began with handstands, we’ve the best information on the planet when it comes to free materials for that tremendous in depth. It’s all the pieces it’s essential to get began with handstands. In case you’re making an attempt to go additional with handstands, I extremely suggest our pal Emmett Louis.
I feel Handstand Manufacturing facility is the title of their program. That takes that to a really, very, deep stage. and these are all issues that you may, you recognize, do at dwelling, by yourself. and also you don’t want anybody’s assist for this. We even have a lot of coaches that may aid you with these things too. so anyway, and for locomotion stuff, we’ve tons additionally articles on our website and applications that work on these things. In order that’s the sources. It’s on the location, discover it. Transferring on to flexibility.
Ryan: Yeah. and I’ll say it’s, I’ve, we’re going is we’re providing you with a whole lot of choices. It’s speaking about a whole lot of completely different folks, our buddies and issues like that. However don’t suppose that you need to be mixing all the pieces in and, and, you recognize, making this into like a two hour session or one thing like that.
Yeah. You, you have got a while proper now and also you truly may want and need to transfer round and do this for 2 hours for issues like that. I feel that’s completely high quality, however simply take it in consideration that. it’s nonetheless good to have a objective in thoughts. A particular objective that you simply need to work on. That is additionally going that can assist you as you’re transferring ahead.
Once more, we don’t understand how lengthy this lockdown goes to be, and so take a look at it as a coaching cycle and say, all proper, so this coaching cycle, you might even simply say it’s going to be a month lengthy and also you truly develop a program and also you simply comply with that program. having that routine that we’ve talked about earlier, is what’s gonna assist with this.
So flexibility. Take a look at the issues that it’s essential to be engaged on that you’ve got been neglecting, in any other case, a whole lot of alternative ways you possibly can take a look at this. flexibility is a really broad subject we will be speaking about inside there. mobility wanted with a purpose to aid you with flexibility down the street.

I consider, our good pal Mercedes, who’s additionally a GMB coach and he or she has a whole lot of on-line bouldering, climbing in applications and, you recognize, can’t get to the bouldering health club.
You possibly can’t get to the cracks to go climb. You possibly can focus in your grip power. You possibly can give attention to, you recognize, the opposite issues which might be going that can assist you along with your climbing. Likewise, Brazilian jujitsu, if you happen to’re doing Brazilian jujitsu, if you happen to’re doing some other martial arts, it is a fabulous time for you proper now to focus in your mobility, and you can too do some solo drills at dwelling.
So, you recognize, it’s not that you simply’re taking essentially or sorry, that you simply’re not doing all of your specific exercise. It’s that you simply’re specializing in issues which might be gonna aid you for once you get again to your exercise. different, different locations in your physique as nicely. Simply take a look at your joints. Undergo your physique and take a look at your joints.
Are you having points in a selected place? And by points, what I’m speaking about, take a look at your vary of movement. If, let’s say for instance, up till now you didn’t possibly even discover that your neck mobility was missing and for no matter you wanted to be. Or possibly you simply really feel that your neck is fairly tight and also you haven’t observed that earlier than since you’re too busy doing all the pieces else proper.
Properly, it is a nice alternative so that you can sit down or arise or no matter you need to do. Actually go down your physique from head to toe, transferring every a part of your physique and say, all proper, what’s going on in my physique? That is your likelihood to evaluate what’s occurring in your physique. Then you possibly can take the time to handle it.
Okay. My neck mobility isn’t what I assumed it was. How can I make that higher? After which you possibly can simply focus particularly on that specific place and do this with each single joint in your physique. That is going that can assist you down the street. It’s going to provide you that suggestions that, you recognize, and by hitting these areas, once you get again to doing no matter it’s that you simply’re doing, you’re going to be higher for it.

And, principally it’s as much as you to determine what you need to type of base your routine on and what you need to be targeted on and choose one thing after which once more, work that as a cycle, work it into your routine, make it constant.
, get some accountability on it. , verify in with those that know that you simply’re doing this. And you recognize, even when you’ve got, if it’s your, your finest pal three States over that you simply textual content one another twice every week and say, Hey, I acquired my exercises on Monday and Tuesday.

Set instances, put it in your calendar, set an alarm in your cellphone, have a time. Once more, routine. It’s so, so essential to just remember to do these items at set instances that you simply get to it at a time that’s going to work and that you simply stick with that.
The opposite one is setting apart area. That is one thing that’s, it’s virtually slightly extra psychological and for some folks it’s more durable than others. Is determined by how a lot room you have got, however there’s a few methods you possibly can go about this. One is when you’ve got a eating room or one thing that you simply don’t actually use, you’ll clear some area area on the market. Clear the stuff off the desk, transfer the chairs out of the way in which, you recognize, pushed up towards the wall and say that for the following couple of weeks, that is going to be my exercise space. Cool. If you wish to put a yoga mat in there or one thing, that’s high quality.
If you wish to just remember to’ve acquired like some bottles of water and a towel or one thing, like if you happen to use bands or one thing or a kettlebell, hold all of it there so that you don’t need to go get it. And put that stuff collectively. That is actually vital.
In case you, if it’s time on your coaching session or your exercise and you must begin by altering garments, discovering your bounce rope. The place did I put this? I don’t have area. I’ve acquired to maneuver some stuff. It’s a barrier and it makes it simpler so that you can not do the factor that it’s essential to be doing, so attempt to put aside area if potential. Nevertheless. You could reside in small place, you might share your dwelling quarters with different folks. You won’t be capable to do this.
So what you want then is you want a plan for a way you remodel that area at sure instances, proper? So you have got lounging mode after which you have got all proper exercise mode, proper? And if exercise mode, if all meaning is that at 10:15 you progress the espresso desk out of the way in which. Then that’s high quality, proper? However it is best to have a set plan that at a sure time you do that, you shut the door, you progress the espresso desk, you, clear up all of the meals that’s on the counter or no matter.
