Optimal Performance Podcast


Jun 8, 2017

The average person SITS 7.7 hours a day, with some people sitting up to 15 hours!

By comparison, the average person only gets 6.5 hours of sleep each night.

No wonder we're seeing a shift away from health in the average person. After all, 71% of the US is overweight.

These statistics tell us a LOT.

We sit too much. We sleep and move too little. And you already know we eat more than we ever have in the history of our species - most of that coming from low quality, processed foods.

But not you - right?! ;)

Back to this sitting thing...

The CDC has called sitting the new smoking.

Since most of us work from a seated position, commute to work sitting in cars, buses, trains, and planes, and then spend much of our down time sitting in front of TV's, hunched over phones...

This podcast is something you need to hear.

I'm joined by Aaron Alexander of Align Therapy to discuss how our posture impacts - no, it DICTATES - our physiology.

Tune in to find out how you can optimize your sitting time and overcome the muscular, skeletal, and emotional crippling that comes from sitting in submissive, depressive, "douchey" positions for 1/3 of your life (8/24 hours a day).

Hack your posture while sitting to optimize your physiology, feelings, mood, decisions and hormonal health.
