Ben's 33 Best Practices for Longevity
Listen now
After a 20-year bodybuilding career, everyone asks why I've changed the way that I train, and why I approach fitness and health so differently after retiring from competition.  As I continue to build upon the foundation of being lean, healthy, and muscular for life, longevity has become a huge focus for myself and the high-achieving individuals who go through Muscle Intelligence training. Today's episode offers you the BEST techniques and habits to bridge the gap between intelligent muscle-building and longevity.  Today's 33 tools are immediately applicable for men and women of ALL ages who aim to show up as their best selves day in and day out. You'll learn: Everyday practices to help you maintain quality of life as you get older (and why it's SO important to start young). Nutritional and supplemental protocols to optimize performance, energy, and cognition. Why muscles are EXTREMELY important, valuable organs. How intentionality, clarity, and mindfulness transform into true fulfillment. Plus...the ONE factor that defines the entire aging process. P.S. Today's episode comes with a special offer: I've got episode notes for you (click here!) that make it easy to keep today's tips with you as you move through the rest of your month, year, and life.  The episode notes PDF includes links to all episodes, websites, and people that I've mentioned in this episode.  Share them with someone that you know will find them valuable! ====== If I have to convince you to prioritize your health, Muscle Intelligence coaching isn’t for you…. If I have to convince you that the best investment you can make is in yourself…. That being fit is not a temporary decision, but a commitment…. That it’s not about MORE or what you do, it’s about BETTER and how you do it...  Or that your physical health impacts all areas of your life, keep scrolling. I’m not in the business of convincing anyone.  I’m in the business of transformation. The individuals who come to us are already high-performers.  They’re committed. Ready. Don’t get me wrong - These guys come with challenges too. They typically have limited time to train, injuries, no gym access, busy families, no customized plans, no specific training knowledge, no coach and an inner fear that it’s going to be too hard. But here’s the tough love you need to hear:  The only difference between these guys and YOU… is that they took action. They stepped in the ring anyway. I’m looking for a few more men who want to transform in 2022. If you’re serious and you’re committed, I’d love to see if you’re a right fit for a program I’m starting in 2022.  Apply now at ====== Thank you to today's sponsor, BiOptimizers Biome Breakthrough!  Biome Breakthrough contains powerful probiotics, prebiotics, and specific proteins to optimize the gut microbiome and support your immune system so that you are strong, healthy, and able to tackle your 2022 goals.
