Good health should be the ultimate goal of almost every individual. Unfortunately, despite the high availability of health and fitness-related information, it’s still hard to achieve optimal health, and seemingly even marginal health.
When scientifically examining many of the recommendations pushed by the fitness industry one quickly starts to realize exactly why almost everyone fails. The available advice is, for the most part, incorrect. Some of it is a miss read of research, other examples are so irresponsible they are borderline malicious, albeit most likely originating with the best of intentions.
This situation is what prompted Dr. John Jaquish to design with an innovative approach to promoting health. The inventor of the X3 Bar, a patented medical/fitness device, will revolutionize the medical fitness field. If you’re not familiar with his accomplishments, you can access his Instagram account or personal website.
Dr. J’s X3 Bar is designed to develop the body’s absolute maximum strength and muscularity. X3 does so by delivering higher forces than one would use in a gym in different places of a given movement, where force creation capacity is greater for all people, therefore individuals go to a greater level of exhaustion and it is this, that triggers growth beyond what has been seen with regular cardio and weight lifting.
So how did this device come to be invented? It really relates to Dr. J’s first invention.
John considers himself an expert when addressing bone density issues. Since his mother was diagnosed with osteoporosis, a bone dysfunction that causes bones to be weak and more likely to break, Dr. J had made it his primary objective to find a way to reverse the condition. He studied the effects of high-impact loading on people with both strong and weak bone density.
Typically, a person with poor bone density has a higher likelihood of suffering bone fractures. Therefore, as expected, the medical industry advises exercise to strengthen the body’s structure, but without a dosage, or how much force, as a recommendation.
Many do not know that it takes over 4 times a person’s body weight to induce any improvement in bone density at all. The early work led Dr. J to inventing a series of medical devices that could allow for this with a broad population. And even reversed his mother’s bone loss, which was his primary motivator.
After the bone density invention, something became obvious as it related to fitness, it’s that weight lifting was a waste of time, as it doesn’t scratch the surface of what humans are capable of just to stimulate growth. So X3 became the next advancement.
Training with the X3 Bar is far more effective in stimulating muscle growth. It works like a weight-lifting machine with resistance bands connected by a barbell-like handle. Unlike other exercise devices, the X3 Bar has a different but far more effective mechanism of action. As a result, provoking muscle growth is possible at a greater rate than other exercises..
Despite never going to the gym and just using X3 at home, your body can be at its physical best, which is even better than if you lifted weights. Most people really have no idea what their genetic potential is because of the limitations of standard fitness equipment and practices. This is what Dr. John Jaquish has proven to the fitness and medical world.
With his ingenious X3 Bar, bone density issues will soon be a thing of the past. John also has published a WSJ best-selling book, Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time, which is available on Amazon, and provides all of the background on his inventions, as well as nutrition planning. The superior exercise in nutrition that he provides have taken the Miami Heat, many other NBA players as well as professional football players and Olympic athletes to the highest levels of athleticism they have ever seen.
