Shawn Baker M.D. How to still break records at 50+ Episode 76

Shawn Baker M.D. completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas in Austin. He graduated with honours from Texas Tech Medical School and completed his Internship and Orthopedic Surgery Residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. His lifelong passion for athletics and strength training has resulted in numerous state and national weightlifting records and a semi- professional rugby career.  As a 50+ athlete who is still breaking records, Shawn has an unusual view on what it takes to stay young and still perform at an elite level. With a 772lbs deadlift under his belt and the World record for 500m row in the 40-49yr age group at 1.16.5, Shawn shows us how its not just strength but also fitness that can be optimised using some simple principles.  We talk though his training philosophy and also his Zero Carb diet approach which is very interesting, being able to perform on a diet of just 3-4lbs of meat a day is always worth a look at!
