John Jaquish, PhD., has spent years researching and developing improved approaches to health. He is the inventor of the most effective bone density building medical technology, which is now partnered with Tony Robbins and OsteoStrong for rapid clinic deployment. He is the inventor of X3, 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. His book, “Why Weightlifting Is A Waste of Time” explains his non-conventional approach to human physiology and is a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
In this episode, Dr. Jaquish busts many of the myths within the fitness industry, such as why resistance bands alone are worthless, why weightlifting is a waste of time, how chronic cardio can increase body fat and the theory behind the anabolic feeding window.
