In this podcast, recorded at Spartan World Championships in Lake Tahoe, I got put in the hotseat for an hour by a former podcast guest of mine: Will Ahmed of WHOOP.

Will grilled me about every step of my day, and my exact morning, afternoon and evening routines - from sleeping to pooping to sex and more.

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-How Ben first got involved with performance and fitness [5:00]

  • Always had a desire to teach; consummate learner
  • Write for kids magazines, teach what he learned to other kids
  • Love for nature immersion and movement
  • Constitutional assessment labeled him as a mover
  • Began playing tennis at age 14
    • This began the search for optimizing his game, which led to a focus on exercise, nutrition, etc.
  • Endurance sports are more appealing due to the importance of physiology, nutrition, etc.

-Ben's morning routine [9:20]

  • Christian Gratitude Journal
    • One thing grateful for
    • One truth
    • One person to pray for, help, serve
  • Read for 15 minutes
  • Wash face with an oil cleanser
  • Oil pulling for the mouth
  • Make coffee
  • Spend 15 minutes taking care of body - self love
  • 20-30 minutes Morning reading: Twitter, research digests, emails
