Sal Di Stefano and Adam Shafer of Mind Pump Media and the MindPump Podcast join Krista and Lindsey for a fluid conversation about fitness, business, nutrition, social media, porn, cryptocurrency, biohacking, and performance optimization! With over 40 years of combined fitness experience and a commitment to keeping up on the trends and myths in this industry, these guys are overflowing with the know-how that will help anyone optimize their performance, fuel their bodies properly, and live their best life. Their no-B.S. approach is refreshing in a space where we are constantly being sold the next best program or the most effective workout supplement. There is a funny thing that happens when fellow podcasters hang. THERE ARE NO RULES. These guys are hilarious, passionate, and equally inquisitive. They flip the script and ask the girls some questions, too – which you can check out by becoming a Patron on our Patreon page (www.patreon.com/almost30). This is a notebook episode, so get your pens out! Lots to learn and debunk! We’ll dig into…
