In the podcast episode “Shattering World Swim Records On 25-Piece Fried Chicken Buckets, Climbing Mountains While Eating Defatted, Vegan, Grass-Fed, Argentinian Liver Anhydrate & Much More” I interviewed athlete, mountain climber, former collegiate and Olympic trials qualifying competitive swimmer and supplement designer Craig Dinkel about a special blood oxygenating formula called “Biotropic”.

After that interview, I received an onslaught of questions about everything from grass fed liver anhydrate to cordyceps senesis to hidden benefits of beetroots, the detoxification properties of algae, whether it's really true you can get all the benefits of blood doping without actually blood doping and more. So Craig came back in the podcast "How To Legally Dope Your Blood (Without Actually Taking Illegal Drugs).", and in that podcast, we took a deep dive into the unique blood building formulation Craig has designed. Now Craig returns for a third time to take a deep dive into a new formulation called "Oxcia", and to also talk about recovery for aging athletes, cross-body patterning, a form of high intensity interval training called "HIIQT" and much more!

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-A form of training called cross-body patterning, and exactly how Craig implements it...[8:10]

-The difference between HIIT and High Intensity Interval Quality Training (HIIQT)...[14:10]

-The machine Ben has in his office to hyperoxygenate his body and also to stimulate altitude...[23:20]

-The one fruit that simulates Viagra and gives you a full body "pump"...[27:10]

-How citrulline can be used to significantly enhance power and force output during exercise...[33:15]

-And much more...
