The Warrior Soul Podcast

Over the past two decades of fighting the Global War on Terror, we've heard so much about veteran suicide, veteran homelessness, and veterans suffering from chronic mental and physical illness. What we haven't heard much about are solutions. The Warrior Soul Podcast introduces listeners to tools, tactics, ideas, and techniques to help the US Military Veteran Community, and anyone else willing to listen to increase their strength, health, happiness, and performance through interviews, q & a, and Warrior Fitness Notes segments. Hosted by US Marine Corps Veteran and International Sports Nutrition Coach Chris Albert.

After serving in the US Army's Special Forces, Tony Aguiniga pushed hard into the civilian world. He graduated from the Fire Academy, got his Oil Broker's License, and began his civilian life in what many would consider responsible fashion. 

But something wasn't right. Tony wanted to do more. So Tony and some friends started a tactical shoe company called Woobies. These are awesome, fashionable, and comfortable shoes that you could wear hunting or out to dinner. With his first entrepreneurial experience under his belt, Tony decided to pursue another passion: educating veterans about the benefits of cannabis. 

In his new venture, mygreentools.com, Tony's site teaches veterans about the potential benefits of the cannabis plant: what strains to use, the best dosages, and methods of use. He also runs a company called Grey Matter that makes some amazing glass pipes.

Mark Sisson is one of the biggest names in the fitness industry and the Primal/Paleo movement. 

He's also 64 years old and looks better than a lot of guys half his age, which is why I think people should listen to him. But it wasn't always easy for Mark. 

Back in the 1980s, he was a high level endurance athlete, and he ate like one. Loading up on carbs to do day after day of grueling training was standard for his routine. But his diet and training schedule led to a near complete breakdown of his athletic career. Swollen achy joints and irritable bowel syndrome were with him every day. 

Mark decided to change his diet and training in favor of the paleo lifestyle, and he was able to continue to be active, out running and out muscling many guys in their 30s. 

Mark lays this all out in his book The Primal Blueprint, and his new book The Keto Reset Diet, explains how we can all tap into our evolutionary make up to gain the ability to burn fat for fuel at will. 

This was a fantastic conversation with one of my fitness heroes and I hope you enjoy it!

Tragedies such as the one we experienced on October 2, 2017 are horrible. But even in tragedy we can find lessons. 

This short episode discusses the public and media response to this horrible event, and Chris discusses a quote from Marcus Aurelius's Meditations: 

"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." 

So many of us are obsessed with fear of the future that we forget to garner lessons from the present.
