Weight lifting and crossfit may conjure up images of grunting and big muscles.

That’s because we don’t often think about the longevity and anti-aging properties associated with weight lifting …

Or how weight lifting can increase psychological resilience and transform the timid into the confident.

And when it comes to long-term fat loss, weight lifting is possibly the most effective modality one can embrace.

Sought-after naturopathic doctor and avid strength athlete Dr. Amanda Milliquet discusses all this and more.

She shares the science of muscles and movement and tells a few transformation stories about how barbells shifted the once-shy into strong beings—in and out of the gym.

You might like these key takeaways:

11:22 Strengthening the rhomboids: Stretching the major and the minor pectoral muscles is the first step
14:43 Sleeping: Turn off your screens at least one hour before bed
18:00 Foam rolling: Dr. Milliquet finds foam rolling to be very valuable. Cushy rollers are not helpful—if you’re not in pain, you’re not doing much.
19:06 Decreasing inflammation: Taking fish oil supplements and eating a healthy diet help fight inflammation. Happiness is a huge part of health.
21:20 Crossfit carry-over
25:02 Fat loss: If you want to lose weight, you need to lift heavy weights
28:36 Deadlifts: Use your hamstrings for deadlifts. Romanian deadlifts are good. For engaging the glutes, the Russian kettlebell swing is best.
37:05 Muscle-building tips for women: Push yourself to the limit. Create muscle fiber damage, so it comes back stronger. Make sure that you are eating enough protein.
38:46 Dr. Milliquet’s favorite nutrient: German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is her favorite herb. It’s a calming tea.

Dave Asprey discusses key highlights from his new book, Head Strong: http://amzn.to/2oyTcO4

Key Takeaways:

02:23 Origins of Bulletproof Coffee:

04:15 Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting: Dave was an early adapter to intermittent fasting.

07:29 More Neurologic Resilience: Mitochondria take food, light and direct electrical current and convert them into electricity within you.

09:36 Ketones and Your DNA: To manufacture protein in your cells, like neurotransmitters, repair proteins and bone synthesis, you need to be able to read the DNA. It is easier for your body to read DNA in the presence of ketones. There is also a reduction in inflammation from ketones.

11:21 Combine the Ketogenic AND Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Many ketogenic diets include NutraSweet, a mitochondrial toxin.

17:05 Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators: Within the past 2 years Dave has increased his polyphenol intake and he has been using selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs).

24:25 Excess Cortisol: Excess cortisol negatively impacts mitochondrial function, causes weight gain and impedes muscle growth.

26:35 Mitochondria and Meditation: 30:13 The Power of Mitochondria: Mitochondria drive your emotions and behavior. They decide if a cell lives or dies.

34:42 Light’s Affect upon Mitochondrial Function: We have a deficiency of red light. We are too often exposed to blue light. O

49:15 Tracking Willpower:  Willpower requires electrons, which requires fuel. Every decision you make costs you something.

50:02 Dave’s Work Routine: His calendar is booked every minute of every day for the time he has agreed to work.

51:26 Dave’s Challenge: He believes that one of the most important things is to have quality unstructured time. That allows for creativity. He would like to have two mornings a week where nothing is scheduled.

55:49 Training Intuition: Dave consciously trains his intuition. Neuro Minor software is designed to teach you what is going on in your brain when you are not paying attention.

58:00 Dave’s Favorite Superfood: Coffee is his choice. The caffeine from 3 to 5 cups of coffee can double your morning ketones. Coffee is also a rich source of polyphenols and it tastes good.

59:19 Dave’s Elevator Pitch: It is time to go after Monsanto.
