Why Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time

In this TEDx talk, Dr. Jaquish discusses why standard fitness does not work for almost 99% of the population and how making major changes in how we load the body provides us a better way to build muscle.


Start to improve your health, physical performance, and conditioning.


Dr. Jaquish frequently gives free health, nutrition, and physical performance advice, all with the evidence-based documentation.
