With my days in the OR and long cases that require me to stand for five or six hours at a time, I decided to change up some of my movement practices. If I’ll be standing a lot, then I should train the physical act of standing, right? So once or twice a week, I’ll head to the barbell, load it up quite heavy, and then just stand underneath the load, taking ten breaths per set.
After leaving the warmth of a Florida winter, with a quick layover in Minneapolis, we arrived in Northern California on the 28th. Yuba City, which is north of Sacramento (or ‘Sac’ as the natives say), is less a city and more a collection of orchards and rice paddies with some low buildings sprinkled in. My partner’s family lives in a small ranch home nestled between rows and rows of pruned trees waiting out the cold. Here, we enjoyed the second half of winter break with deliciously cold showers, slow wifi, and lots of comfort food.
Stephen Grow! Stephen is a father of two, a follower of Christ, and a loving husband. In this conversation, we discuss the difficulties and benefits of homeschooling, the difference between being a Christian and having a relationship with Jesus, and how a hug can change a life.
I hope you enjoy! 🙂
Eugene Kim! Eugene is a rising second year medical student at USF, a coach of crossfit and crew, and the initiator of this podcast! This week, Mackenzi Frost (previous On Death interviewee) turns the four prompts on your usual host for a delightful and sometimes rambling conversation on teaching versus coaching, love versus fear, and the value of a practice.
I hope you enjoy! 🙂
Goodbye CrossFit Gaspar. I love you all.
Hello Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This going to be a wild ride.
This week On Death, we chat with Randall Sheffield and hear his responses to the four prompts! Randy is one of my best friends within medical school, and an outstanding coach and athlete. Thoughtful, kind, and humble a few ways to describe him. During this delightful conversation, we talk about travel, love, and family.
I hope you enjoy!
Usually, as I post one #LongFormSundays post, I already have the next percolating— this week, nothing.
