...I'm not fine. I feel horrible. You know I have no energy, I don't sleep, the way my skin looks bad, you know on and on and on. So they know something's wrong. So what we run is called functional labs. We use saliva, urine, we use stool, we use some blood top but it's looking at things differently and looking at different things. And so these functional tests are the way to go.

Reed's Top Trick for Enhancing Focus
Reed'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
