How to Become a Durable Super-Dad – A 'Smarter Not Harder' Intervention

Bryan Gardner

Learn to think – Smarter Not Harder – about health problems, ask questions that lead to answers, and upgrade your biology with the coaching of Dave Asprey.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

… Dave talks with Bryan Gardner (a self proclaimed “super-dad”) who wants to take his current hacking to the next level. Bryan has questions specifically about his brain & neurology, his fitness, and spirituality.

Bryan is an aerospace engineer who built a small hedge fund business more than a decade ago. So he doesn’t sound like someone who would be struggling with productivity, focus and managing his energy.

This episode covers many meaningful and helpful topics, including blood flow restriction, high intensity intervals, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, neurofeedback, hacking your fitness to save time, and a whole lot more.

I will get better and better at the art of “wanting to” versus “having to” or “needing to.”
