The Quiet One - Leo Ryan

Rebel Runners

Leo Ryan stood out at the 2017 Dublin Marathon for an extraordinary reason - he had his mouth taped the whole way!

So basically he barely ran ahead of the race, and not only finished but went on to recover quickly too.Leo is a personal trainer, breathwork coach and fascial stretch therapist based in Ireland, not far from Dublin. He's worked with individuals and teams for 16 years including Gaelic football teams. In this episode Leo shares his tips on run training that will leave you with more energy and time for family, work and fun so that the drudgery of a marathon training schedule can be a thing of the past!Contact Leo Ryan:www.innate-strength.comInstagram @iamleodanielUnlock the secrets to avoiding injury and burn-out with our Rebels Workshop - where you can get all the juicy stuff without the hours of research.

The Muscle Up Training Podcast - 057 - Breath work training and techniques with Leo Ryan

The Eoin Dobbin Show

Todays episode of the podcast is an absolute cracker and I'm delighted to welcome back repeat guest Leo Ryan of innate strength. Leo coached me during the summer and helped me to improve my breathing mechanics, awareness around how I breathe and taught me invaluable lessons and techniques that I use every day since. The topic of todays podcast is breath work, how to start improving your breathing and techniques for reaching states of calm, hype and concentration. Every time I talk to Leo I leave with a deep appreciation for how we breathe and how fundamental it is to everything else we do. Can you think of anything else we do 19500 times a day on average?  IG @ eoindobbin.pt IG @ iamleodaniel

#90 -The Trumptober Surprise; Leo Ryan & The Dennis Doctrine

Escaping The Cave

Todd's a bit cranky this weekend,Trump has the virus, and we all "wish him well." Do we? Do we really? The trustpocalypse: it's telling how many suspect the dramatic diagnosis may be part of his reality show's season finale. Todd also discusses our unprecedented institutional meltdown, his chronically "angry" tone and the distinction between honesty and truth. He also pays a personal tribute to a childhood idol, Bob Gibson, and shows how Leo Ryan's Jonestown example adds texture to the Dennis Doctrine and the firm belief that fanatical sectarians should be exiled not engaged: "the switch is internal."  Also: Trump's social momentum, applying the Useless Shit Epiphany to turning 50, and Toddzilla's Tribe: where exactly is it?

219: Leo Ryan on Marathons with Zero Run Training and the Power of Breath Training for Athletic Performance and Mental Clarity | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Just Fly Performance Podcast

Today’s podcast features performance coach and breathing specialist, Leo Ryan. Leo is the founder of Innate-Strength.com. He has studied athletic training, health and breathing since he healed himself of asthma in 2004.Leo has achieved a prolific amount of education in human performance and breathwork.  He has attained multiple diplomas and certificates from many elite personal training, physical therapy and breathing schools including Dip. Buteyko Method, Wim Hof Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Master Instructor, Fascial Stretch Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates teacher. Leo’s love and experience for health and physical performance has seen him research more than 70 breathing techniques, mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions.Breathing is truly on the top of the totem pole when it comes to our day to day health and well-being (we take around 20,000 breaths per day).  It has a massive impact on our mental state, as well as the physiology of the body, in addition to its implications for athletic performance.  We can run longer, recover faster, and gain enhanced mind-body states through simple breathing drills, as well as becoming more educated on the topic.Today’s show was longer than average, largely because the concept of performance breathing is so expansive, and we as a coaching community, generally don’t approach it in much depth.  Often times we are just told to belly breathe, or nose breathe, and leave it at that.  In this show, Leo covers all aspects of our breath, including nose breathing versus mouth breathing for performance, breathing as a readiness assessment, performance versus recovery breathing, diaphragm release techniques, and much more (including his experience in running a marathon, and recovering from it extremely well, despite ZERO run training).  This is yet another “staple” episode, as it truly covers this intersection of health, well-being, and athlete performance in the topic of the breath.Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.View more podcast episodes at the podcast homepage.Timestamps and Main Points5:30 Leo’s story of running a marathon on zero run training through optimal breath work and breathing techniques16:30 Training repeat versus short sprint ability with nose versus mouth breathing19:30 The importance of an aerobic base for the majority of athletes, and how breathing plays into this base24:30 Why breathing and breath training is so under-appreciated by many coaches and individuals in training29:30 How Leo uses breathing as a readiness assessment as opposed to HRV43:15 Leo’s battle with asthma, and how that led him to studying breathing and breath for athletic performance enhancement53:10 What people should be able to do with their breath, and “hardware” issues that could hold back the ability to breathe well1:00:20 Breath training in context of a typical gym session with Leo1:05:00 The link between breathing, adrenaline, and recovery times in training1:15:00 Tensioning the body through breathing for improved power application1:23:30 Methods to restore the function of the diaphragm“If I really wanted to perform in marathon, and hit a PB, and I trained for it fully, I wouldn’t mouth-tape (nose breathe)”“We know that pure mouth breathing will burn more sugar than nasal breathing”“Unless you are a pure power sport like Olympic weightlifting, a powerlifting type sport, you do want a decent aerobic base to you”“The benefits of breath training is all about recovery; for me, it is the main recovery modality, it’s where it all starts”“You don’t want oxygen just in the blood, you want it in the cell”“There are psychological aspects to breathing as well”“I only use HRV now with people who are not tuned into thei...

Episode 2 - Leo Ryan

The PrimeLife Podcast

My guest today is one of Ireland’s leading Health Performance and breathing specialists, Leo Ryan. Leo suffered from chronic asthma for years to a point where he was bed ridden for a total of 6 months. He stumbled across the Buteyko method and practiced this until he was off all medication. After mastering the Buteyko method he then went on to become an Oxygen advantage master instructor, a course designed by Patrick McKeown. Leo then discovered the Wim Hof method and was intrigued by the differences of the two methods and so this led him to train and spend time with Wim, leading him to become a certified Wim Hof method instructor. Now during this podcast we discussed Leo’s experiences living with chronic asthma and how he transformed his life through the power of breathing. We talk in depth about the Oxygen Advantage method and how important nose breathing is for health and sports performance. Leo’s passion for health and physical performance has seen him research more than 50 breathing techniques, mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions. I hope you enjoy my conversation with the Great Leo Ryan.

97- Rep. Leo Ryan’s ticket to Jonestown

Cutting Class

Joe and Jess dive into this story of California Representative Leo Ryan who had a knack for theatrical politics. Perhaps we also find out why politicians are big fans of staying out of the field. He was a man who believed in seeing it first hand and getting himself right in on the action. When Jim Jones “convinces” many of his followers to open up a compound in the jungles of Guyana, representative Ryan was first on the scene in investigating exactly what was going on. Things would go south when the cult’s “loving” exterior begins to crack and reveal the evil beneath.Sources – 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
