Thriving Under Pressure with NBA Star Blake Griffin – #667
By: Dave Asprey
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Blake Griffin, a power forward for the NBA’s Detroit Pistons and a six-time NBA All-Star.
To stay at the top of his game, he’s dedicated to high-performance training and a healthy lifestyle. “I just naturally enjoy healthy things,” Blake says. “And I think some people don’t believe that that’s a possibility. But I actually do, and I’ve always had this interest in it.” He keeps upping his athleticism, redefining health and wellness, and expanding his repertoire of skills.
Off the court, Blake has cultivated a reputation for business acumen—appearing on the cover of the 2019 Forbes 30 under 30.
And in a surprisingly non-athletic turn, he’s gained respect in the world of comedy with his impressive comedic timing. He’s appeared on The Tonight Show in advance of his annual comedy. by blake fundraiser, which he hosted at the world-renowned Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
Listen on to learn about Blake’s training and travel biohacks and how delegating opened up his time to follow new pursuits.
Enjoy the show!
