Episode 225: Leo Ryan - All Things Breathing

This episodes guest is Leo Ryan from Innate Strength.

Leo Ryan is a Health Performance and Breathing Specialist and the founder of Innate-Strength.com. Leo has studied athletic training, health and breathing since healing himself of asthma in 2004 with the Buteyko Method. After graduating with an MSc from University College Dublin, he continued to educate himself prolifically throughout his professional career in Ireland and internationally. He has attained multiple diplomas and certificates from much elite personal training, physical therapy and breathing schools including Dip. Buteyko Method, Wim Hof Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Instructor, Fascial Stretch Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates teacher.

Leo’s love and experience for health and physical performance have seen his research more than 50 breathing techniques, the mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions and he undertook several internships with the world-renowned Dr Eric Serrano.

Up to 2019, Leo has spent a lot of his time coaching one-to-one in a personal training environment and testing his training methodology on himself. Leo played Senior club GAA football in Dublin with St. Sylvester’s. He is a black belt in judo, he ran marathons without any specific training, he gained more than 52 lbs of muscle, and he even climbed a mountain with nothing but a pair of shorts and boots. His clients have healed cardiovascular disease, asthma and anxiety. They’ve reduced symptoms of depression, panic, colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Some have gained weight, purposely and others have intentionally lost weight. The best thing is, they’ve also gone onto to return to their passions in life, like tennis, running and Gaelic games.

Leo continues to train people one-to-one and he also coaches the fundamentals of breathing, movement and resilience for life and athletic endeavours through workshops.

 On this episode Leo and I discuss:

  • Leo's background and how he got into breathe work
  • What is an Asthma attack like?
  • How to access and train the breath
  • Leo talks about the differences between Wim Hof's work and Patrick McKeown's
  • I ask Leo what was training with Wim like?
  • I ask Leo about his biggest influences?
  • I ask Leo how he learns
  • I ask Leo if there is anything he does on a daily basis that is essential to his day?
  • I ask Leo for his top and current book recommendations
  • I ask Leo how fatherhood changed his life?
  • I ask Leo the importance of being role model for his daughters
  • I ask Leo, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Episode 216: Dr. Tommy Wood - Optimizing health and longevity

This episodes guest is Dr. Tommy Wood from Nourish Balance Thrive and Physicians for Ancestral Health.

Tommy Wood is a Senior Fellow in the Pediatrics Department at the University of Washington, and Chief Scientific Officer of Nourish Balance Thrive, an online-based company using advanced biochemical testing to optimize performance in athletes.

Tommy was born in the US to Icelandic and British parents (which means he has three passports in two different names). He was predominantly raised in the UK, but also spent periods of time at school in Iceland, Germany, and France. Tommy received a bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences and Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge before studying medicine at the University of Oxford. He worked as a junior doctor in central London for two years after medical school, and then moved to Norway to complete a PhD in physiology and neuroscience at the University of Oslo.

Tommy is currently President-elect of Physicians for Ancestral Health, he is a director of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine and the Icelandic Health Symposium, and is on the scientific advisory board of Hintsa Performance. Tommy has also coached and competed in multiple sports including rowing, CrossFit, powerlifting, and ultra-endurance racing. Alongside his career in medicine and research, Tommy has published and spoken on multiple topics surrounding functional and ancestral approaches to health, including examining the root causes of multiple sclerosis and insulin resistance.
