Building Strength Isn’t About Weight Lifting Anymore with John Jaquish, Ph.D.

Bulletproof Radio episode #862

You can build muscle strength and bone density at any age to improve overall body health and increase longevity.

Inventor, author, and scientist John Jaquish, Ph.D., downloads his knowledge about the importance of bone density. When his mom was diagnosed with osteoporosis he set out to develop bioDensity, a system that builds bone density by triggering the effects of weightlifting without the risk of injury. He’s talked about it on Bulletproof Radio before.

He’s developed a way to put on muscles three times faster than you can by weightlifting. I’m asking him to explain why that matters and what devices and routines can help you get there. He created OsteoStrong and the X3 System, a series of devices that combine rehabilitation devices and advancements in human physiology to build bone density.

Why so much focus on bone density?

“You’re avoiding the potential for fragility fractures later in life,” John says. “The bone you build through the osteogenic loading process, through this heavy loading, you’re getting bone built that’s going to last in your body for 30 years. It doesn’t go away like muscle. Detraining of a muscle starts in 10 days. If you stop working out, you lose your muscle in 10 days. It takes you 30 years to lose the bone.”

In Part 1 of this two-part episode, we talk about John’s inventions and research, as well as the three aspects of strength that most people don’t think about when they start a fitness routine. You’ll learn what vitamins and protein habits matter and what kind of exercise truly increases your longevity.

You can also check out John’s book: “Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time: So Is Cardio, and There’s a Better Way to Have the Body You Want”
