Let Them Play: A Triathlaon Across the Country for a Cause w/ Eric Byrnes — Barbell Shrugged #429

Eric Byrnes is a former MLB star who is now on the MLB Network. Last summer, in order to bring attention to the lack of PE in our schools, Eric swam, ran, and rode across the United States from San Francisco to New York City, and the documentary he created, Let Them Play, is awesome. Eric came on to chat about the lack of PE in schools and the creation of his film.

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, the guys take a look into the software of the body and how high performers use language to advance their athletic and coaching careers.

In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, Anders Varner and Doug Larson discuss:

Transitioning from Major League Baseball to endurance racing.

Setting world records in golf.

Why our country is so sick.

How to reshape the culture for children to help them play

Spreading the message of movement through action

The Let Them Play documentary filmed in a race across the country

And more…
