“Sprinting is probably the single best exercise for youth […], more than I would believe squats” [5:46]
“The amount of weight you lift is not nearly as important as a host of other factors we call volume load: sets times reps times weights and then the range of motion is also a critical component.” [21:59]
“If you go to failure, you’re going to have more fatigue. You might have a little more stimulus, but you’ll have more fatigue, which might delay recovery, and that’s going to affect total volume and volume is a superior driver than fatigue” [26:01]
“The vertical diet was intended to be more inclusive of what historically I had seen as over restrictive” [33:02]
“The muscle is the most important organ in the body […] it’s a sink for glucose. That’s what the muscle is so effective at particularly when you’re moving it and working it.” [47:34]
“Taking a 10 minute walk after each meal is twice as effective as Metformin for reversing or preventing type two diabetes, just from moving the muscles and getting your your body to do what it’s supposed to do” [48:18]
