Podcast 8:19 Steel City Ruck Club- Kristi Devenyi & Jason Prindle



The Steel City Ruck Club is a PA-based GORUCK affiliated rucking group.  The simple definition of rucking is moving with weight on your back. For more information on GORUCK, including their gear and events, go to:

https://www.goruck.com/what-we-do/

We interviewed Kristi Devenyi and Jason Prindle.

Kristi (in her own words): I’m a kettlebell trainer and kettlebell sport competitor based out of Pittsburgh Kettlebell & Performance. My journey with GORUCK started because I love the team based aspect of the events and the training is a blast!

Jason (in his own words): I consider myself a try anything kind of athlete, as long as I’m competing, even if it is just against myself. I grew up on football and lifting as my first serious endeavors. In college I discovered rugby and it consumed my fitness life for 15 years. After recovering from major knee surgery I fell into rucking which brought me back to my love for physical challenges. I started when rucking was pretty new to the nonmilitary world and got my ass kicked in my first event and fell in love with GORUCK events.

If you have an interest in sleep then this is a great interview to learn more to improve quantity and quality to enhance quality of life.  Below are show notes with more info about Dr Dunican, this week’s interview.

Dr. Ian C. Dunican (in his own words):
I have over 20 years international professional experience in health, safety and improvement within military, mining, rail, oil and gas, and other utilities. Combining scientific research and operational leadership, I support organisations in reducing risk, lowering cost and optimising productivity and performance. I have applied Lean/Six Sigma and other scientific methodologies in significant projects to drive step-change improvement in performance, whilst ensuring sustainability through associated culture change. In the mining, oil and gas sectors, I have worked internationally as an advisor to major companies including BHP, Anglo Gold Ashanti, South 32, Karara Mining, Peabody and Goldcorp. I have been responsible for the development of global practices, integration and project management across multiple product groups. This has entailed the quantification, analysis and interpretation of multiple data streams to support health, safety, financial strength and productivity.

Currently I am the Director of Melius Consulting/Sleep4Performance. I received a PhD from the University of Western Australia (UWA) working with elite athletes and sporting organisations to optimise performance. I am a highly sought researcher, having worked with Olympic and elite athletes at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and West Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS), and with professional teams in Super Rugby, Basketball, Australian Rules Football (AFL) and martial arts (judo, boxing, grappling). A regular speaker/chair at universities and international conferences in mining, transport, sports performance and physiology, I regularly contribute articles to media outlets such as the Australian Financial Review, The Australian, Men’s Fitness, Blitz Martial Arts, BJJ Scout and Huffington Post. I have spoken on the Health Report on ABC radio in Australia, ABC radio national and numerous podcasts. Also I have appeared on ABC television, Channel 7, 9 and 10 in Australia, and was a TEDx Perth speaker in 2017.

I am author and co-author of numerous technical reports, scientific articles and industry guidelines, and I am a regular reviewer for scientific peer reviewed journals. I host Sleep4Performance Radio, a podcast dedicated to education, knowledge sharing and promotion of the value of managing sleep. Through my website www.sleep4performance.com.au, I provide blogs, resources and research on all aspects of sleep, recovery and performance. An active sportsman, I have completed over 20 ultramarathons to date including the Ultra Trail Australia 100km (7 times), Leadville 100 miler, numerous marathons and trail running events. I hold a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and enjoy cross training with bodyweight exercises and Kettlebells. My current focus is improving my swimming in order to undertake long distance open water swimming events.

Schützhund– translates to “protection dog.”  FitLabPGH talked with Drew Zihmer about the sport of Schützhund and his German Shepherd, MaverickMaverick was also profiled in the FitLabPGH Features released 12/20/18.

There are 3 levels of Schützhund: IPO1-3, which is now IGP1-3 (and we still refer to as Schutzhund or SchH1-3)

The 3 phases of Schutzhund are Tracking, Obedience, and Protection – 100 points per phase, for a total 300 possible points

Podcast #1:19 Stacy T. Sims, PhD, applied researcher, innovator and entrepreneur



FitLabPGH has a sister podcast- Moving2Live.  This week we bring you an episode from Moving2Live that should be of interest.

Stacy T. Sims, PhD, is currently a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Waikato after returning to academia from a 6-year hiatus in industry. She is an applied researcher, innovator and entrepreneur in human performance, specifically sex differences in training, nutrition, and environmental conditions.

Prior to being launched into industry, she served as an exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist at Stanford University from 2007 to 2012, where she specialized in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance, specializing in women’s health and performance. With the unique opportunities Silicon Valley has to offer, during her time at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson’s book written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer product companies and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health outcomes.

Her contributions to the international research environment and the sports nutrition industry has established a new niche in sports nutrition; and established her reputation as the expert in sex differences in training, nutrition, and health. As a direct result, she has been named as one of the top 50 visionaries of the running industry (2015), one of the top 40 women changing the paradigm of her field (2017), one of the top four visionaries in the outdoor sport industry (2017), and one of the top four individuals changing the landscape in triathlon nutrition (2017).

A regular featured speaker at professional and academic conferences, including those hosted by USOC, HPSNZ, and USA cycling, she resides in Mount Maunganui with her husband and young daughter.
