► 00:10:01

The Joe Rogan Experience

► 00:10:06

all day

► 00:10:10

mr. page how are you I never had a bad day in my life ever had plenty of bad moments it's all state of mind. And I don't stay there if I go down I get back up if you're going to chew that people going to go fucking crazy hundred 50 comments cuz I have a sore throat I got a stick and I'm a big fan of yoga and what you've done for not just what you've done is made yoga available to people that thought that yoga was for chicks funny you say that because it was yoga for regular

► 00:11:10

you have to be in the you know you got to be all Namaste expecting to hear what the fuck you're going to yoga and you're really really into it I mean you've got your own system of yoga I mean this is for something that I think is like very important for body maintenance and for keeping your your spine healthy and Mobility which is one of the things that a lot of us ignore especially big guys who like to lift weights and do a lot of Crazy Mocha first 42 years of my life really really 62 dude if you if you folks are when he just did with no warm-up no warm-up bend over grab your ankles fully fully flatten your body out press your body up against your thighs

► 00:12:10

with no warm up then he picks his his ankle up and fully extend his leg over his head mean that it that is incredibly impressive for a 20 year old person it's all about staying at it and I was owning it going back to 96 which was I was 40 years old 97 and 98 On Top of the World Wrestling 270 days a year every year and then I did The Tonight Show Hollywood Squares a movie called the first order was my first movie I did so I mean I'm probably working 300 Powerball legit 610 long way down all of it and being almost 43 years old and when

► 00:13:10

ruptured L4 and L5 vertebrae allows that we do but really arouses is so shock absorber discs in between vertebrae

► 00:13:27

slap that Joey Dawn and now there's nothing there no discs in between my L4 L5 I was told by 3 different spine specialist in ever going to wrestle again so the guy wouldn't be caught dead doing yoga and once I start doing Joe just like you know

► 00:13:55

I start feel different and I thought of thinking wow now did you talk to any doctors at wanted to replace your disks or fuse your disks to one of the few someone getting and history in 1999 so there wasn't any of those spacers that they have now on anything like Santiam discs and have any of that and this whole thing when you go back you will be because you won't recover from that so again going to do yoga and I start doing Bryan kest he's amazing what kind of yoga is at Power Yoga on the map and he made me feel like I'm cool like today is a buddy of mine VHS tapes but for what I want it wasn't giving me everything so what I did

► 00:14:55

and I'm like God given gift of figuring out how to heal myself on the first Confessor wrestling Dever Isis Body by almost a decade year before they would start doing that I mean like ice baths or like I should I just kill myself and what I found a lot of people don't want to put the extra work in the hardest workers they won't go that extra mile just to go get a bag of ice for Christ go get a beer and have some food you know right this is Austin is a little bit of that right there's something about the same type of guy that's so tough they could work 300 days a year is also the same time

► 00:15:55

if a guy is going to go out fucking just deal with it and Steve Austin in Austin was always way ahead of the curve but he wouldn't ice ice bags in between my case managers get beers Cole station techniques with the yoga positions then I threw an old school calisthenics like push-ups squats crunches and I did it with a slow burn movement cuz I had to eat so when I say Slow Burn movement is what you were just showing me that before we start the podcast I'm going to do a lot of dynamic tension exercises

► 00:16:55

until all that stuff did you ever

► 00:17:01

I would lower for 3 whole freeze up the ground for 3, and then Facebook you'll see a video up there of me doing on my 62nd birthday why choose after

► 00:17:43

10-second push-ups at 62 from my core strength is at a different level I don't anymore I haven't really I don't need to sign I like being like 230 the bottom line is what today is called I'm bringing it cuz it's so different that you been I just took you to think that I add another element to it I got your car

► 00:18:30

like a lunch or fully four-door to explode into touchdown I say throw a little Ric Flair on the end of that he exposed you're just having people having fun at school and it's just wrote son he's been independent wrestling WWE Western in 29 minutes and 36 seconds be counted the count the seconds because it's a really big deal when you forget sell that when you're independent group

► 00:19:30

insane it's insane how many different groups are there now there's NWA is WWE w ways with Billy, Billy Corgan start studying business and did a hell of a match and Billy owns that title now think about this Vince McMahon just

► 00:20:08

just because I want to say he was paid 1.2 billion by Fox for the programming for a wife showing Friday night I'm not sure what the deal is it 6 years or 8 years but 1.2 billion and then I heard there's another multi billion dollar contract out there Comcast or something so that's like NFL stuff so when that kind of attention, wrestling more people are going to be like who I want to get involved in that and plus Vince really has taken it mainstream a different level we were killing it in the 90s had the highest rated show on cable television what was WCW or WWF every week but that was nothing like forgetting today cuz they made it kids-friendly they changed today it's about

► 00:21:08

go to another boom in this whole independent thing that Cody Young Bucks who are great kids I did it really lit up that world it's a really big and so is our show is on Mexico just got signed to the WWE he was in his story is kind of its kind of fucked-up he got fired from the UFC for failing a pot test and the crazy thing that it's so crazy let the guy smile Jesus Christ it's even more crazy that you know now it's legal right now pots legal and now the number to level that you can get tested for is so much lower than anything that he got but I think he enjoys it I don't think he's missing fighting you no fighting is a yeah I know that pro wrestling is probably harder on your body doing those 300 days a year I mean I don't think there's anything like it in all

► 00:22:08

entertainment I really don't I mean it's it's crazy to think that you are getting body-slammed and thrown out of the ropes and forearm slammed and all that shit's going on 300 days a year it's really really it's not fair just really should be AB way will you can take some time off it doesn't make any sense when I was when I said hilarious when I'm hurt don't compete with you know you can perform hurt on a regular basis I mean you know it doesn't have to cut me wait anymore and now he's gigantic and he's a fun guy I think WWE is perfect for someone like him

► 00:23:08

these kids are unbelievable are so talented program 24 trying to 28 you know so they can reply to me so it's much easier for you for me to get them to pay attention ride in the world and he is not what your ass looks like he's 28 you can do in my program since he did the same thing doctor said he was not going to wrestle anymore 5 Weeks Later months later he talks about it. How is your back today those the same discs if I don't do it

► 00:24:08

you don't like you got to brush your teeth I don't have to do it every single day but he was pretty much in man and woman in the real proof of this for me cuz I'm the First Transformation

► 00:24:28

the bottom line is they said my career was over when I was 42 I started doing what now is called bdp why

► 00:24:36

three months Less Than 3 months later I was back in the rain at 42 / 43 on the World Champ and that's like getting our Oscar you know what I mean when I say I wish I was there instead I workout that will Champion Ric Flair Took The Diamond Cutter in the middle it was Hogan took Hogan gave me such a hug afterwards like this is what this business supposed to be that someone like you who no one would believe would ever be anyone to work so hard that they would be comfortable champ when I got my hall of fame ring 2017 inside ahead and I can hear work ethic equals dreams! Dee Dee Pig and that's what it is you know I don't tell you anything you understand everything now you're back

► 00:25:36

today did you ever get an MRI on it oh yeah I did all that but now I don't really but I know what to do like I cheated on my wife and I swear to God cuz every morning I do what we roll out of bed some nights you feel like you to hit by truck you know what I mean sleeping and I wake up my dear you're not lit up as soon as I do within 8 minutes I feel like a completely different person who was completely gone now they're going on it is it still like that yeah but he's a very Namaste ddpy way more because it's

► 00:26:36

it works like that but it's right before you own it. I want to show you something I brought with me cuz I've been waiting for your show to release this I got a new book coming out Premiere I don't think anybody ever positively Unstoppable the art of owning it I like it what is it it's whatever the fuck you want to check that out

► 00:29:05

awesome because you're you're exposing something that I think should be it just has to be something that everybody does I just really think that at all athletes all people I think yoga is a life staple I really did stepped into that yoga Community but that's not who I am right I know that the yoga people like they get it they don't need me at literally that have nobody I don't have any direction disabled veteran that I help no I did not what you do with no disks to understand that because everybody likes serious muscle atrophy and

I think since I fell many times yeah

► 00:33:25

but I got back up about getting back up right yeah this is very impressive just watch him do what he's doing here guys got heart

► 00:33:37

you know it's the attitude to do something even though it's difficult and in pain is so damn important it is so important people have to force themselves to do something this guy is one of the best examples of that you're ever going to say I mean who had a better excuse to give up then this guy wow look at all this weight is lost this is crazy

► 00:34:01

he's a teacher in Baltimore

► 00:34:06

► 00:37:44

that's insane standing on his back was doing a push-up in one year and that's really it was crazy because again anybody got my program in trying to sell you anything I want to say thank you and I got a couple questions if you would answer might appreciate it his answers were so good that I've never written anybody like this time it sounds like you need some help bro I said what's your story Cliff Notes disabled veteran morbidly obese relegated to Signum self as a piece of furniture so I say send me some pictures so I can see what I was working with and those are the pictures those first two with the canes

► 00:38:45

fuck man I don't know how I can help you because it's not so much a knee braces I didn't realize it was strapped to a back brace and his wife 20 minutes of sleep enough to do it together 20 minutes later he's going to the bathroom with his pants so I send this food plan which is like my face free eating plans for help but I got it from a guy named dr. Fred Bitchie and the time Fred was 78 could still run 20 miles on the beach in the in the deeps and when my brother gets his mental help people with cancer and also did you guys like he's just a different level of walking the talk so you have a food plan and I well as an exercise plan and what kind of food you got a meeting this is what I like to do let's go back to what God created it's not genetically modified all right shift is not sprayed with

► 00:39:45

chemicals so much Clomid organic or like your great-grandparents used to call it fucking food like is everything go to handle it go to France can I buy organic vegetables that go like everything's supposed to be just the Obesity heart disease cancer diabetes autism-like is it through the roof how are there 400 lb guys everywhere happen and then they change some fucking wrestler but I know when I get people to eat what God created us not genetically modified I found that they get out of pain and that's what it would take and Scott

► 00:40:45

Stickman death and watch Resurrection Jake The Snake so I can set you up with that too but Jake I got them eating real food and Scott Hall AKA Razor Ramon eating real food within 2 weeks they're already going to start getting out of paint that's why I'm I eat the way I eat because I don't want to feel like I'm in D2 I want to feel like I'm 42 x 62 when you talk about your food plan like the are you giving them specific portions and what to eat like how do you set it up on the app which right now I'll give a nap. I think I have the most expensive on the planet that you can use your iPad to computer and I didn't realize it.

► 00:41:45

Detroit the tablet and the computer by going back in time I guess we're done the phone because and in the computer because you can have your phone go right to the TV but I spit cost me a lot more money to do it I called ddpy rebuilt you can't get out of bed you can't do the workout will ship I got three workouts in bed that have nothing to do with fuck it it's just freaking working out for 10 minutes 12 minutes will get you up and I called those beds flexed then I put you in chair Force where you're sitting in a chair at 8 workout and I fucking chair which get you strong enough to hold the chair so I called those stand strong like Arthur was doing help you get hope you can count help you balance help it keep you from falling then you're ready for beginner and once you get to all the modifications I teach you would stand strong

► 00:42:43

I got a guy was 84 years old his name is Ted Evans every fucking workout I do if it goes all the way to extreme psycho shit and held it for 30 seconds then pulled it out held it for 30 seconds. It's got to be to stuff the fighter UFC fighter yes I mean nobody can ever take him down your leg hook his leg and foot

► 00:43:24

you're not taking him down he's going to be doing some of this type of stuff I should be there different levels at a level that you can start in bed so there's no more excuses for themselves they don't have the energy there to beat up that's bullshit is always something you can do as always have any of you but if you give yourself that fucking excuse that's the problem with what I love about that video is anybody having excuses. I mean to Canes giant belly blown out knees blown out back veteran paratrooper got got me jumping out of fucking hair

► 00:44:24

play it over and over again blows his body apart and you fixed it and he fixed it. I just literally like you're so smart so would I send him the food plant right from the food plan because I'm eating chicken stay over and over and over and over and over again make the GDP why your own Mike and Ikes play North Rye called him where's what happened so text me back I think I can do it I'll give it a try you go crazy now I go hey awesome keep me posted but he said four words or he wrote for words I can do this I should give me your number right now if you say you can you say you can't you're right you know that they say you can or you can't you're right right can I said that original

► 00:45:24

he was right and I was sleep but he said I can do it I said give her number so I called them and I said yeah we talked for about an hour two weeks later he calls me back as importance of workout is as important as the eating plan is 10% of the equation the 90% is right between your ears right here that 6 inch piece of real estate the store you tell yourself and I said if you can really just get past that Story start

► 00:46:06

telling yourself a different story example would be when I had my whole Fame induction speech in front of 20,000 people and millions of people on USA and on the WWE Network bottom line is is that I wasn't in the back going oh God I hope I don't fuck this up oh God what if I forget was going to say oh God this sucks when your voice I want there to the best thing I've ever done like it's the best thing I've ever done but it's about that story that you tell yourself when you get all the shit and that's why people listen to you because they want they need to be over and over and over again the way you think about things is so important it's so important it's almost more important in the fax it right the way and the way this guy decide

► 00:47:06

but he was going to change his life. That video is so important to people mean if there is ever that's the best testimonial video you ever going to say I mean that guy is as broken as they get me he's basically it make it easily could have been in a wheelchair easily back to eating so back to the grind you say if you're early on in your young calorie count calories in calories out but a lot of people that doesn't work for anymore so what I get him to do is go gluten and dairy free and really starting a gluten-free if you can go on people that are gluten free ice all I know is the people I work with get out of one of them

► 00:48:06

fuck if you eat gluten gluten but this is what I do and look at them and it just helps drop weight it's it's about inflammation in your body go back to icing your body

► 00:48:27

when did the conventional wisdom is when it's bone on bone like your fuck this too much information there is too much grinding and you're just it's just going to be too painful to do anything you're going to have to do some sort of a surgery how it how does the yoga says it because I was what is the strengthening all the core muscles around your spine stabilizes everything in the only thing I've been working the bar business my whole life that's what I did before this but for some reason I'm just gifted with figuring shit out like on my app there's a guy named Jerry can a disabled vet in wheelchair for 2 and 1/2 years there's no weight to lose in 665 to 40 looks great but he's got the Walker that got there for two and a half years

► 01:10:53

every one of those disabled outside kidnap you know because I just want you to do it cuz if you do it you're going to feel better I don't know how much better how much work do you want to put in and you know it all comes down to the work ethic of where you are how much work you put in where can you get my program meet you where you are and that's the whole thing with Jerry to watch for he is the last episode I want to because I know eventually around to it you're going to be like wow this fucking shit is crazy and constantly lengthening and strengthening like I stretched my whole wrestling my whole athletic career and 3/4 when I stretch stretching is great but it's not the end-all-be-all I'm stretching and strengthening the muscles ligaments and tendons

► 01:14:09

► 01:18:08

if you're like to say 10 feet below sea level that's about 4 pounds per square inch pounds per square inch pressure is there a takes like 10 minutes to get up there like you're blowing your nose like you know like just getting it fix your ears and all that shit happens when you get to 12 PSI now it breaks the brain barrier in the oxygen will go to your brain so this is I didn't know any of this ship I sit next to me Brad Campbell was like an angel this cat and we just start talking and it's some point I said man how old are you anyway sounds like you do a lot of shit he says it's 45 maybe 47

► 01:19:00

I know you're 57 I have a fuck you look like that he said I've been living in a hyperbaric chamber for the last 14 years. How did that happen you said I was diagnosed with Ms 22 years ago

► 01:19:17

oh wow and I'm like so he told me that when he gets a 12 PSI and it goes to your brain and this should be layman's term like when you get Ms kind of like crystallize going to Bright alright and when the crystal still up where do they go next

► 01:19:39

Shoot the angle off Metro so it was pretty cool but it's all about laying flat and Brock Lesnar doing that flip off the top rope Atlantic just from that and how the fuck did he not have permanent spinal injury from that and he is 300 lb of the time I tell everybody I don't think what you want about freshman wrestling you can't fake gravity flying through the air Landing

► 01:28:23

yoga and sprinting all these explosive exercises building up the muscles but what you're doing is your tightening up all the joints in the people missing that are really into fitness and exercise they're doing all this explosive stuff but what's connecting everything together is what blows out my knees the ankles the shoulders the back and this this is something that's missing from a lot of people's work it's cuz it's not as glamorous right it's not like you do biceps your body get all pumped up you do chest you get all pumped up you look great it's a different thing you're doing is for overall body maintenance and health and just connecting all these parts together in a way that makes the whole unit stronger and healthier strengthening just think about going over your head and reaching up with no but I started class like I just had a hundred and seventy-five people pay to be a part of a workshop that I do

► 01:29:23

operation Beach perspiration and I'm glad so jacked up I'm so inspired didn't feel like I could run to the brick wall and where they are on whatever level so the person who might be 400 pounds and the person who shredded over there can get a good workout at the same time cuz I'm showing you how to do that modification of a chair and this guy I'm go go deep no no go deep before I start with those things there's people there who come back cuz they hurt yoga and I walked in and got my mic on I got I'm walking I go if you came here for the yoga when you reach your arms to the Heavens to the universe smiles back at you and I dropped my arms I go we won't be doing any of that shit tonight

► 01:30:18

what kind did you start with all of them at least once just to try. I respect yoga a movie called why yoga and in it he gives me a camera and was a second time I went to Iraq and I filmed all this shit and me with the guys and then interview I was right stuff but in the beginning wrote the book yoga for regular guys and it was smoking hot chicks and regular guy at the back then if you want to set it and I never thought we would love to work out the way

► 01:31:18

we'll just hear that you put this together 2005 so I was interviewed by this guy from The Wall Street Journal and literally he quoted me saying when Kimberly and asked me if I would do the yoga I was like fuck that I wouldn't be caught dead doing yoga and they put in their movie right where they see like I'm just putting a different spin on it and I'm not trying to do what you're doing but similar more benefits does that mean when you say Power Yoga versus like something like Bikram Yoga

► 01:32:09

to me for so I don't want to be that hot I don't want to be in a hot bro I want to heat my body up in the Colts so I don't want to put myself in a position where it's so hot that I can go farther than I've ever come before cuz I'm going to walk out into the real world and then I'm not going to get that I want to be able to get when I get in the real world and there's like I want to say I don't know how many positions are I want Sears 46 river is in Pegram 28th so that on top of that I don't think it was his to begin with I think somebody else said they had put all those patterns together before him what I do like that one time Chris Jericho

► 01:33:09

so what are you doing did you stand up one day I'm making up as I go along at times I'm probably cuz I'm seeing what you can do and then I'm going to take it if you can really go or I'm going to push you to a different level that I go to if you can't then I'm going to back way the fuck off cuz I don't want to burn you I want you to know what to know when time eating something in Sports Illustrated interview. The strip joint in Vegas and he was the man in UFC it time and he wanted to make sure she wanted to go to where we were and I was like here's what I really feel this shit you're doing is building

► 01:34:09

crazy momentum I go for at the top of where we're going to go right now and so cyclical at some point going to fall out I think it's a whole different thing than what you do and I appreciate it I'm super excited about but bottom line is man stay where you are in the SI interview right so I still have his number I called them up and answer the phone like I do know I saw what you said in that you told the story exact I talked about it like trying to go I told no stay where you are and he put that oversee certain I said man you remember exactly where I worked out with him after his back surgery is that a foul the first one the first one I've worked with him and I'm figuring this is when I'm going to freaking

► 01:35:09

Kim to show him how to strengthen them then after that he wouldn't do it but I finally think about I go to know why didn't you do it again because it was too fucking hard bro I'm like dude 21st of July and I can make it super easy and that's why I learned the fuck off and let me show you how can I like Cain Velasquez he was just down in and doing in the pro wrestling after his career is over I'll tell you what man back surgeries shoulder surgeries knee surgeries and he really could use your natural as you can imagine is a giant Mexican

► 01:36:09

he's one of the greatest of all time it's not the greatest he just his body couldn't keep up with his mind my mind was so physically tough I mean is my man so he was so mentally tough it is is physical body would start falling apart his knees back shoulders it's just when you watch that guy train he trains like nobody him and Daniel Cormier would just go to the fucking more and I'm so happy for dcma he's awesome Sana Thursday there's a UFC welterweight championships in Dallas this weekend awesome awesome and that Cain Velasquez

► 01:37:09

did six workouts in 6 workout to double sessions and however a single session every day before and then you always change numbers I should have my program is something that's hard I don't know if he's doing I've been checked that would help him tremendously you know because this whole issue is has been really his back his other injuries the shoulders in the knees and stuff like that but they can fix those better than they can fix your back the back is I know if you want to lose those discs I told him you can get out to the account person work with you it cost you this I just want you to have the results because like Arthur the results will speak for themselves, I'm a Believer a hundred percent and I just I just can't say enough how impressed I am that video with Arthur and that is one of the most impressive transformation videos I think I've ever seen online

► 01:38:09
