How To Increase Power & Endurance At The Same Time
David says: I am a lifelong climber and now a full-time climber in my retirement and I am after the holy grail of climbing – power endurance. I need the power to handle my weight and the endurance to stay on a climb for a long time. I know how to improve muscle strength and mitochondria but is there something a climber can add (supplements, diet, biohacks) to improve their power endurance?
Steve says: Do you have any tips when it comes to breaking addictions? Specifically behavioral addictions like gambling or substance abuse. Any tips or info you have would be great!
Should You Drink the Water On Airplanes?
Alex says: I work for an American airline and quite often the aircrafts are written up for not having a functional potable water supply for drinking or washing hands. The reason being that the water tanks have built up an unacceptable level of e coli. My question is this: is the risk of drinking from such a water supply ever worthwhile for eliciting a hormetic response in the body? It seems many pilots are split between “absolutely not” and “a good way to prepare the body for an end-of-days bacterial breakout”. What are your thoughts on this?
