Best Moments of 2022!

Best Moments of 2022!


Mike and Corey recall a crazy year with the best moments from thought leaders and world champions.  Plus, Corey and I, when things get out of control in the mountains.
After years of pursuing health and wellness, Mike and Corey have learned just to eat the damn cookie!
The Mountain Wellness team begins their journey with InsideTracker to further self optimization and longevity. 
"Mike and Corey exchange experiences as they profile the book "Deep Survival," Who Lives, Who dies, and Why by author Lawrence Gonzales. 1. Be here now—no other thought than the present. Keep an up-to-date mental model of changing conditions.2. Everything takes eight times as long as it’s supposed to. It’s the friction rule.3. Mistake - Make a plan and worship the plan despite changing conditions. More and more effort will somehow overcome the friction.4. The more complex the plan for overcoming friction, the worse things get.5. "We live like fish in an aquarium. We are the domestic pets of a human zoo we call civilization. Then we go into nature, where we are least among equals. There we are put to the test. Most of us get out unscathed, which can make us even more vulnerable to the ever-changing conditions before us—even arrogant. We have been there, and done that."
Why do we take respiratory performance seriously? You will hear from breathing expert Nick Heath in this episode, who has benefited from his breathwork practice to reduce the effects of diabetes. 
At the GoPro Mountain Games, Corey and Mike are captivated by Davis Hermes's trajectory before he becomes a world champion. At twelve years old, Davis found his calling in the world of slackline. By twenty-two years old, he takes the world champion freestyle Highline in Switzerland.

Mike and Corey find out what it takes to launch off an 80-foot waterfall as Nick Troutman takes us inside his preparation for freestyle Kayaking.
Mark has dove as deep as 135 feet, all on a single breath of air. An astounding breath hold of six minutes underwater.  “As a waterman, Mark is unrivaled,” says big-wave icon Laird Hamilton. “When it comes to riding giant waves, diving deep, and hunting fish, he’s the total package—unique even among us.”
Corey Reed makes another round with COVID, while Mike, who believes he's mastered the backcountry, gets humbled on the John Muir Trail.
Corey gets the low down. In another attempt at the Mt. Whitney Summit, 14,508 Oxygen saturation levels dropped to as low as 75% as Mike and the athlete team worked to raise oxygen saturation levels. Bear encounters, Crazy Jack, Mike, John, Chad, Seth, and Jonathan all make summiting another unforgettable experience.
