HRV update

Many times the effects of a hard training day (Friday 8/10/12) do not really show up on the HRV until day 2. This stuff is all so fascinating to me, today is a repetition upper day. I will be adjusting volume and intensity accordingly.


  1. Hey Jim, been reading/watching more of your stuff - mostly the breathing stuff and it learning lots!

    Just wondering about the "detox" diet you and Kiefer were discussing in your podcast with him. Could you point me where to read up more on that? I think I rememeber you guys saying it involved beef and bone broth?

    1. Thanks Josh,

      I have learned a ton about breathing in the last couple years as well. Powerful stuff, The detox diet can be found in a back issue of flex (don't know which one) From my understanding
      It is grass fed beef, bison, bacon and peppers. I could be wrong. Adding beef bone broth wouldn't be a bad idea. I used it to help heal my gut. I am sure if you went to Kiefer's forum you could find more info about it.

    2. Thanks a lot Jim. Got caught up on all of your podcasts, enjoyed the Wender and Mike Mahler ones but my favorite was probably Dan John. Listening to that guy is just... amazing.
      "If you dont lose weight on the Velocity Diet, go punch Chris Shugart in the mouth" hahaha.

    3. Thanks for listening! Spent the entire weekend with Dan he is an amazing guy !!! One of my favorite interviews as well.

Chill the "F" out ......

In today’s episode of the Gym Laird show, I am joined in studio with my client Rachael Bertram Mathews. I ask Rachael to share her story as she has done what a lot of women do to lose weight only to gain weight. She shares how she: – Was training boot camp 4 days a week at 5am
– How her previous coach told her to add more cardio once she plateaued
– How her motivation dwindled and she couldn’t bring herself to go to boot camp
– Discovered powerlifting when her friend told her about Gym Laird
– Why I told her she needed to train less and calm down when they started working together
– Once she got her nutrition and exercise in check how her moods changed
– Why she benefits from having a coach
– Why self care is important Left pic: 3 years of 3-4 times a week 5 am boot camp. Last 6-8 months added a second session a day. Weight was 160 lbs and gaining weight while overtraining. Right pic:
Training with me for 3 years. Strength training 3 times per week. 4 powerlifting meets, lifestyle change, ma…
