Today, the Mad Scientist Chris Duffin and I sit down to discuss some of Chris’s incredible life stories and entrepreneurial ventures. From Duffin’s homeless childhood to his multiple companies, this episode depicts the relationship between adversity, strength, and health. Learn more about the Kabuki strength and Chris’s go-to modern BearFoot shoes in this episode.

Chris Duffin, the guy who made me reconsider my running shoes, is an inventor, thought leader, and serial entrepreneur in health and fitness. He has co-founded multiple prominent brands, the largest of which is Kabuki Strength. Not stopping there, he also founded a shoe company, Barefoot Athletics, and Build Fast Formula, which we will learn about today. So, if you are anything like me, impressed with Chris’s world record for squatting and deadlifting 1000 pounds for reps, then make sure you check out his detailed autobiography, The Eagle and the Dragon.
