I was always kind of curious about myself and understanding what makes me tick so it kind of goes way back to those days and then as I got into my professional life and you get a little bit older, you start shifting from okay I’m trying to be an elite athlete to I want to optimise myself in this high pressure, high-stress world of business.

What is Quantified Self?
Quantified self is increasing self knowledge through self tracking. You can track endless variables on yourself, but not all of these are impactful or worth tracking. "Quantified Self is really about finding a personal meaning for your data."
What are Bob Troia's Resources to Enhance Cognition?
What is Bob Troia's Favorite Book on Peak Performance?
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
