“The whole thing, like, genes and genetics is like the cookbook you have -- all the recipes are in your DNA but the way it gets expressed is determined by the circumstances you live in, like what you eat, how you sleep, how much you exercise, and even the things you think about have impact on the expression of your genes.”

This is a different format for the podcast. Rather than a traditional interview, Daan and I were having a conversation and I hit record. This part of the conversation is focused on Epigenetics, the study of changes caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
