Episode 2126 - On this Friday's show, Vinnie Tortorich speaks with Roderick Green, a Paralympian athlete, and they discuss growing up in a competitive family, his various accomplishments, and the importance of mind over matter, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2022/06/mind-over-matter-episode-2126 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS MIND OVER MATTER Vinnie welcomes Roderick Green and they chat about Roderick's many athletic accomplishments and rankings. Roderick was born without a fibula in his right leg, which resulted in amputation below the knee at age two. He was from a large family and the kids were very active and competitive with each other, so he was involved with athletics from a young age. Vinnie then asks Roderick to give more background about how he advanced throughout his athletic career. They also chat about the various controversies and challenges regarding materials for prosthetics and current testing that occurs for the Paralympics. They then go on to discuss several other para-athletes they find inspiring. Vinnie asks Roderick about the work he does as a mentor and about the non-profit foundation he's established. This leads to discussions of mind over matter; both Vinnie and Roderick hate the word "can't" and share some examples of positive change. Vinnie explains what he means by "F.Q." (Failure Quotient), and why it's important; Roderick has thoughts on mindset as well, including asking himself, "What can I do now?" BENEFITS OF THE RIGHT NUTRITION Roderick tells Vinnie how a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting helped him get back into better health after an injury. Roderick feels great; however, he explains his frustration how even the experts for high-end athletes don't even have all the information correct--and they are supposed to know the science the best.
