At the start of the show, Jay shared on his upbringing and what it was like working as a bouncer. Next, we talked about the right way to approach training as you age. We also talked about why so many impressionable kids have the wrong idea of fitness and weight training, and why it’s so important to take the slower process to strength. We also discussed:
- Optimization therapy and why we need it
- Why telemedicine is the future
- How Jay reshaped his life after a serious health scare
- Intermittent fasting and why we don’t need to eat as much as we do
It’s necessary to train with longevity in mind– not just the short term gains of pumping as much iron as possible. The right way to do it is slow and steady, not hard and fast. The wrong approach will destroy your body and only lead to pain. Why wouldn’t you consider a progressive dosage of testosterone in addition to mitigating other risk factors? The ultimate goal is to build muscle, the greatest deterrent to aging. Guest Bio Jay is the owner and head coach of Ashman strength. He competed in strongman in the early to mid 2000’s never finishing lower than third in an amateur contest. His last contest in 2010 ended with a second place finish. After his competitive career was over he went through an eye-opening heart scare. Once he got through that he transformed himself physically and mentally by dropping 30 pounds of unneeded weight and focusing on the synergy between hard training and health. He is a former PT manager in NYC at Equinox and in Long Island at Big Al’s Fitness. He was also the former Director of Athletics at Gorilla Pit in Mentor, OH and the Head Strength Coach at BrewHouse Barbell in OKC.
