"The smarter you are, the harder your brain can work against you" - Christian Thibaudeau.  As a renowned strength coach for over two decades, Christian Thibaudeau approaches challenges as opportunities, and uses the nervous system as a way to help determine ideal exercise programming and nutrition.  In this honest, tell-all episode, Christian shares some of his own recent health challenges, and his consequential evolution toward a focus on longevity and quality of life.

Christian is known for his unique approach to training and nutrition that focuses on neurotransmitter levels, called the Neurotyping System.  Christian's philosophies and Neurotyping System have allowed coaches to better understand their athletes from a perspective of personality, motivation, and stress response.

Whether you are a coach, athlete, or just someone looking to optimize longevity and lifespan, there are TONS of "aha!" moments in this interview.  Tune in to learn:

  • Who can benefit from doing a dopamine fast.
  • When hypertrophy can be increased with loaded stretching.
  • How neurotransmitters impact personality.
  • What bodybuilders can do to mitigate cardiac stress.
  • Why it's vital to train contraction in weak muscular positions.

A special message from Ben:

I'm not usually one for Black Friday or Cyber Monday... You'll never see me lining up outside stores, or hovering over the "Purchase" button.

However, I do love to give valuable things to people who work hard, appreciate and apply them...

So, I thought we'd give it a shot this year.  And it'll be some of the most valuable stuff you've received from me this entire year.

Just as a thank you for being a client, brand ambassador, podcast listener, webinar attendee or someone who is interested in becoming lean, healthy and muscular.
