Fitness is a core pillar of health and wellbeing for those of us who focus on creating the best human experience possible. Not only to look a certain way and to support peak performance, but also to extend our health and lifespan. A significant number of people are not satisfied with traditional weight lifting or cardio routines though, feeling like they are spending excessive amounts exercising without getting the desired results.
My guest today has spent years researching and developing improved approaches to health and fitness. Dr. John Jaquish is the inventor of a most effective bone density building medical technology which has reversed osteoporosis for thousands and created more powerful/fracture resistant athletes and that is now partnered with Tony Robbins and OsteoStrong for rapid clinic deployment. He is also the inventor of the X3 Bar, a technology that is proven to develop muscle much faster than conventional weight lifting, all with the lowest risk of joint injury.
Dr. Jaquish's methods are used in training the world's most elite athletes and associations such as the entire Miami Heat organization, various NFL and NBA players, as well as Olympians. He was also nicknamed the "Tony Stark of the fitness industry" and his book Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time explains his non-conventional approach to human physiology and is a Wall Street Journal best seller.
