Listener Q&A:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Rachel Browne, the Podcast Sidekick.

The Best Intervals To Build VO2Max

Mark says: He loves the show. He's an age group competitive triathlete and 3.5 months ago he got in a bike crash where he broke his collar bone, 6 ribs and significantly collapsed his lung on one side. Now in the last month or two as he is getting back into training and competing a little bit, and he's noticed a pretty dramatic change in his Vo2 max and speed, particularly on the run, probably 15%-20% and probably 5-10% in swimming and cycling. He'd love to know the best and quickest way to get his competitive edge back and get his Vo2 max and ventilatory capacity back up to what it was before.

In my response, I recommend:

How To Get Lots Of Stuff Done Every Day

Burt says: He just got to the weekly roundup and its awesome, but he's barely scrolled down and he has a 10 million dollar question. How do you get so much work one? There's so many projects – he sees interviews you've done, your own podcast, articles, working on a chapter in your new book, and traveling, how do you do it? He'd love to know, what are your secrets? He's read and followed your stuff before, and he's hired you as well, but he wants to be able to make it his life. Thank you very much and he loves all your stuff!

Ben's Top 5 Anti-Aging Tips

Tyson says: He's 21 years old and from Sydney, Australia. He's a Personal Trainer and loves health and fitness. His question is how can live to 120 years old? You probably don't hear this from a lot of 21 years olds but he knows he wants to live past 100 and he wants to do everything possible in order to do that. So is there anything you recommend doing earlier in life that you wish you may have done to help you improve your longevity? He loves the podcast, the knowledge you share, and he shares it with all his clients. Thanks!

    that may have been the most absurd pompous response on “how you’re efficient” and your daily routine I’ve ever heard. I can’t believe you didn’t tell us how many times you brush your hair each way. “50 strokes before lunch” plus half the stuff wasn’t even that efficient when looking at it though a scope of what a normal persons daily schedule i.e. Actual Work. Here’s the answer for your listener – outsource medial tasks when possible. Turn off tv. Limit cell phone distractions during key projects. Read 4 hour work week. Or take Bens advice and Simultaniously eat your huge green smoothie while meditating, yoga swinging and brushing your teeth.

  2. Chad says:

    Is your tea recipe for a single serving (4 to 8 oz. base)? If not, how much do you add to the smoothie and how long will a batch keep in the fridge?

    1. You can make as much as you want. What I just listed will make you a few badges worth…

  3. Wayne says:


    One of your best podcasts out of many. Any recommendations on brands or where to look for CBD?

    I know you use the pen and capsules. also when to use them. Just ordered the bark tea, lecithin and Tumeric.

    Thank you for keeping us informed on how to live a longer, happier and healthier life!

    1. Yep – CBD is here: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/hemp and depends on what you are using them for. General recommendations are as follows but you are, of course, advised to consult your healthcare professional:
      – 1 capsule per day for preventative care or general maintenance
      – 1-2 capsules at any time of day where you need more focus OR you're dealing with anxiety and stress
      – 5 capsules is the suggested upper limit for any 24-hour period

  4. Zach says:

    Any reason you couldn’t add Pau D’Arco bark tea directly into your smoothie? Thanks!

    1. You can…and I do! Just prepare it properly first.

  5. Carl says:

    Great Podcast Ben!

    You mentioned in the podcast to do 1 day of Long Aerobic Exercise on an empty stomach for 1 hour each week or twice a week.

    Would that make the body become Catabolic and end up losing muscle in the process?

    1. It depends on your essential fat stores and how much glycogen you ate the night before. If you really want to stave off the catabolic effect you can take 10 to 20 g of essential amino acids prior.

  6. betsy maldonado says:

    Ben, in one of the recent podcasts with Rachel you mentioned a book you listened to on audible that was relaunched with all new updates, I can’t find which podcast it was in or the note. I wanted to listen to it but can’t remember the title. I know my description is pretty vague but if this is ringing any bells could you please let me know what that book was again? Thank you!

  7. George says:


    Do you feel that challenging the brain while in the sauna (heat stress) might work the pre frontal cortex in a similar manner as during intense exercise?


    1. I would suspect that could very much be the case. Heat shock proteins baby!

  8. Sven says:

    I see! I’ll definitely try to stay away from it post workout then, and play around with morning intake. Thanks!

  9. Sven Gevers says:

    Hi Ben,

    I’d like to know your thoughts on apple cider vinegar post workout. The reason I would take ACV at this time, is as a digestive aid (HCL increase) for the post workout meal. I take the ACV 30 minutes prior to eating, which means I consume it with water about an hour after working out.

    Does this have any negative effects on my strength gains/muscle building in terms of insulin sensitivity or the like? Or does it actually help?

    Thanks for your answer, man.

    1. I'm a bigger fan of taking it in the morning as an overall tonic. It will indeed decrease insulin sensitivity which would actually possibly detract from glycogen restoration post workout.
