I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. B Strong made great innovations on this technology. I use it almost every day: high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. In 20 minutes, I have a fantastic workout that is triggering an anabolic response. If you want to get your B Strong blood flow restriction device, head on over to https://bstrong.training/ and use the code BOOMER, and you’re going to get yourself 10% off.View Company

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.
