This episode is brought to you by KAATSU Training. KAATSU bands incorporate blood flow moderation training that tricks the body into thinking it lifts much heavier weights than it actually is. When traditional weight lifting requires you to reach 70-80% of your 1 repetition maximum to stimulate muscle hypertrophy, then KAATSU achieves that effect only at 20-30%. So, it’s perfect for treating injuries or used when you don’t have access to heavyweights.

Research about KAATSU bands also shows it lowers blood pressure, speeds up recovery from injuries, releases stem cells, builds muscle, burns fat and prevents age-related muscle loss. PLUS, you can travel with them easily and still get a good workout on the road. If you want to try out the KAATSU Cycle bands, then use the code SIIM for a 10% Discount at kaatsu-global.com! That’s kaatsu-global.com and the 10% code is SIIM.

Neurohacker Collective offers the highest quality nootropics on the market.

It’s not full of a bunch of caffeine and stimulants but it includes many different adaptogens and ingredients that maintain sustained concentration for hours. I don’t use any other nootropics but I do sometimes take Qualia Mind if I want to get something important done or I have a cognitively more demanding task. I’ve even taken it before working out and there’s a noticeable difference in my ability to push off fatigue and just stay in the right zone for the entire workout.

You can get a 15% discount off all the amazing supplements from Neurohacker Collective if you use the code SIIM at neurohacker.com. They have Qualia Life, which is their NAD precursor supplement, and Qualia Sleep for a sleep supplement that doesn’t contain melatonin. So, it’s really good stuff.
