#79 Coach Bob Anderson and Nutrition for Grapplers

With all the recent focus on ways that combat sports athletes, particularly mixed martial artists, have been attempting to improve their performance using substances that are not allowed by athletic commissions, we thought we would spend some time on natural, healthy, and legal things you can provide your body. Coach Bob Anderson‘s knowledge on grappling sports and nutrition is encyclopedic. The coach has trained dozens of world class athletes, like Randy Couture and Dan Henderson. With one of this masters degrees being in nutrition, and more than fifty years of mat experience in freestyle and greco-roman wrestling, sambo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and more I’m probably not aware of, we couldn’t find a better expert on the subject.

Make sure you have a pen and paper when listening to this one, because the Coach drops some serious knowledge on Dan and I during this show. If you’d like to catch up with the Coach face to face with questions about training, diet, and the like, he is on staff at No Limits gym in Irvine, California.

We also discuss the responses our listeners sent in when we requested what supplements you take. Thank you very much for all your responses! We drew two names at random from all the entries we received and our winners are Bruce Hoyer and Timmyle Larrabee. I’ve sent you both emails asking for your addresses so I can get your DVDs to you!

  1. Since speaking with Coach Bob I resolved to eat more egg whites, and went to the store. Unfortunately boxes of 18 eggs were “buy one get one free” so now I have to chow down 36 eggs before they go bad. Which is probably pretty soon considering the 2 for one promotion! – Caleb
