Episode 1 Quotable moments:

9:10 “From a training perspective, we can leverage times in the menstrual cycle where the body is like, yeah, bring it on! Then after ovulation, this is where we have to look at how can we taper it back a little bit.”

12:36 ”There's research to show that women are better at handling and managing stress responses than men, and that starts in utero.”

13:40 ”And because we haven't actually tapped into how to train women appropriately, we don't actually know what that potential is.”

“The key is using stress and adapting to it and improving. That’s what high performance is to me, the ability to adapt rapidly so you can achieve your potential. There are five key pillars to creating the conditions for adaptability: sleep, exercise, mental resilience, nutrition, and community/relationships.” - Dr. Erik Korem  

"Stress is your brain and body preparing you to do something effortful." Dr. Alex Auerbach

“I maybe have a different concept on leadership. To me, leading is a verb. If you’re leading, you’re a leader. If you’re swimming, you’re a swimmer, if you’re driving, you’re a driver. If you’re leading, you’re by definition, a leader. I define leading as being looked to in a particular moment to decide or perform an action based on your unique gifts and abilities. So by that definition, everybody is a leader. All rank and role really describe is how many people are hoping you get it right when it’s your turn to wear the weight.” - Clint Bruce

"Attention is the currency of performance." - Dr. Peter Haberl

“That’s what I’ve discovered in the lives of brilliant, prolific, healthy creatives, is that they have networks of people they leverage in the course of their work. That they learn from, that they were challenged by, that they gave great insight and purview into their own life and work, in such a way that they were able to receive feedback that helped them get better at what they do.” - Todd Henry

"Restful and fulfilling sleep enables you to grow, adapt, and thrive. It creates the conditions for adaptation, so you can pursue audacious goals and thrive in uncertainty." - Dr. Erik Korem

"Most exercise programs fail, not because the reps and sets are poorly designed, but because the program doesn't adjust for how much stress your body can adapt to that day! That's why Dr. Chris Morris' research and practical application of fluid periodization is the key for unlocking your performance potential." - Dr. Erik Korem
