Success story hosted by Scott D. Clarey is brought to you by the HubSpot Podcast Network, the audio destination for business professionals success story features Q and A, keynote presentations and convos on sales marketing in more a recent episode on how to protect your business in times of crisis is a must. Listen, listen to success story wherever you get your podcasts. Dr. Jaquish, say what's up to Fire Nation and share something that you believe about becoming successful that most people disagree with.
1 (2m 4s):
Hey, good morning by Mason. Something that, okay, something I disagree with that I, I feel like is pushed on everybody who wants be entrepreneur. The idea that's to likes for a number of years, and this is right in his wheelhouse. And one day I was sitting with him, we were having a drink and it was like I said, how many people do you think you really like? Your, you knows, and way telling people really like turn their life around.
1 (2m 46s):
He says, maybe one or 2%. And I said, no kidding. And he said, oh yeah, I'm realistic about this. He says, most people, they get charged up by listening and they have all the right information and they're so grateful to have all the right information, but they're just not willing to do it. And I have realized the same thing every time I, I get asked to speak about making sacrifices that it takes to really let's say launch a, a product that it's never been seen by the world, the complete industry disruptive technology. I've done that twice now.
1 (3m 26s):
And it's, you know, when I say I had to not pay myself anything for and I 60 hours a week, you know, just look and I would never do that. And I'm like, right, you're probably right. You wouldn't. And and so I, I think that being realistic about who's actually gonna pull the trigger on doing what it takes, that number's very small.
0 (3m 58s):
So Fire Nation, I hope you realize that the power of what we're talking about here today, which is personifying high performance in all aspects of your life with your physical conditioning, guess what? We're not under the illusion that 99% of people that listen to this content are going to take the direct and amazing action and advice that Dr. Jaquish is gonna be talking about here today. But you know what, we're gonna get across a 1%. We're gonna across 2%. And hey, when you have 128 million total listens of your podcast and two and a half million plus listens every single month, that's actually, those start to be real numbers. I mean, Tony Robbins gets 10,
1 (4m 34s):
It's a lot of people.
0 (4m 35s):
Yeah. 30,000 people that are in those stadiums that you were talking about. I mean, I've heard those stadiums. So those numbers are meaningful and they can compound over time. But I think it is really important to just to have that realism. So I'm, I'm really glad you brought that up because like I mentioned, Fire Nation, we are talking about personifying high performance in all aspects of life with your physical conditioning. So think about this. So unfortunately, when you look like a physical disaster, Dr. Jaquish people believe it's a reflection of your business. Can you talk about that?
1 (5m 11s):
Yeah, there's, there's quite a bit of data and this came out mostly in the nineties where social psychologists were looking at behavioral psychologists looking at things that helped people do better in their business life and their professional life. And being attractive was one of the highest things on the list. Stated a different way being in good shape. Like ultimately attraction boils down to how long somebody looks like they're going to live. I know that's very strange cuz you think about attraction and you think, you know, what am I attracted to? Whether it's, you know, I'm just thinking of, you know, it's the opposite sex.
1 (5m 54s):
Like is it breasts or is it eye makeup or what catches catches my eye? It's not like that. It's more like people that look healthy are more easily trusted. Like they don't look like they're gonna fall apart. And unfortunately as when you're a physical disaster, people don't trust you. They think you have maybe no self-control or you're not gonna follow through. Like, I mean as somebody who's overweight, one may end up thinking, well this guy can't even control what he puts in his mouth, how he's he gonna handle me as a client.
0 (6m 34s):
See Fire Nation, what I love about this is the reality that you have control over this type of perception. Because if you're not where you want to be physically right now, guess what? You can get there. You can do what it needs to take to get to a place where you look good, where you feel good. And that will be a reflection of you. And I've said this to a lot of people, Dr. Jish, and I'm kind of curious about your, about your thoughts on this because people kinda look at me funny like, oh you can't say that, or you can't really think that way. They almost make it seem like I'm discriminating in a non-acceptable way when I say I will never vote for a fat person. And I literally say those words all the time. Like I forget the exact name of that guy. Who's that guy that was the governor of New Jersey forever?
0 (7m 17s):
Chris Christie. Chris Christie. So obese. And he was like this Wonder King in the political world and this guy could barely like waddle down a street. And I'm like, I could never ever vote for a person like that cuz that person can't even take care of himself. How can I ever expect him to take care of me and take care of his constituents when this guy can't even take care of himself? Why is he so popular? Why does he get elected?
1 (7m 45s):
Well he's an exception and he was a very charismatic person and I think if you listened to him long enough, he might've won you over, but
0 (7m 52s):
You would not have won me over. I would've been like, you're still fat.
1 (7m 55s):
Yeah. It's just, you know, you don't take care of himself, man. It's like how do we know you're gonna live right through your, your term, right? So it's, it's just, it's an important thing if you, you gotta keep yourself healthy, you gotta be more trustable and it's not trust as in they think you're lying. It's trust as in is this guy even gonna be around? Like is he gonna get sick? Why?
0 (8m 22s):
But actually is there something too that comes up where like, I think you obviously would probably know the percentage better, but like something along the lines of like 60% of people are overweight, over 35% of people are obese. At least in America,
1 (8m 34s):
75% of males are either overweight or obese.
0 (8m 39s):
Okay? So that's insane right now. So think about that. And so I'm wondering like if you're obese or overweight, like are you in a sense voting for Governor Christie, Chris Christie? Because you're like, okay, well I'm fat and he's fat and he can do it. So I kind of like that they kind of doing it out being like, well I'm actually gonna support somebody who is, you know, has the same kind of physical ness that I have.
1 (9m 5s):
It actually doesn't work that way.
0 (9m 6s):
That's good to
1 (9m 7s):
Hear. We learned this through the curbs experience. A lot of studies were done on the, the franchise curves. It was a fitness franchise in the nineties and I think it's a hundred percent gone now, but it was a ladies only gym. And so the idea is it's not gonna be intimidating for women because men aren't allowed in the building. But what was really funny is people who would sign up for curves and it wasn't very good exercise equipment. In fact the reason they probably didn't allow guys in there and they decided only women was cuz the fitness equipment was just junk. Like, I mean like lawn furniture kind of like with no resistance, you just sort of move a little bit.
1 (9m 50s):
But typically when somebody signed up there and they lost weight, like the weight loss had nothing to do with what was going on, probably had to do with their, you know, nutrition control. But when they lost weight they would quit and go join a normal gym because even heavy people don't wanna work like they discriminate against. So there's almost no getting from it. Like if you really wanna be successful, you've gotta look like successes in all aspects of your life.
0 (10m 25s):
Now see, I personally am really glad to hear that because I think that's the kind of mentality that we just have to have across the board because if that happens then there will be this actually good social pressure to let's get more healthy. Just like, you know, it used to be unbelievably socially susceptible to smoke. In fact, you would have some social pressure if you weren't smoking. Like, oh, come on, just have a butt. I mean this is of course decades and decades and decades
1 (10m 49s):
Ago. Sure, hey, drinking is still like
0 (10m 51s):
That. It is So like that, like right now I'm on a hundred day, this is a personal solo challenge where I'm doing no refined sugar and no white flour. And of course that means I I'm not drinking any alcohol for a hundred days, which is totally fine with me. Like I've, I've done this and more for a long time. But man, just John, just have a glass of wine tonight. Like what's, what's gonna be the harm? I'm like, well number one, I would break my a hundred day challenge, which I'm not gonna do for one glass of wine. Number two, I wear the ordering every night. I know how much one glass of wine, not just disrupts, but literally destroys a good night's sleep. Alcohol
1 (11m 28s):
0 (11m 29s):
1 (11m 30s):
If you need better sleep, I I got some news for you. You just cut the booze out,
0 (11m 34s):
Cut the booze out, baby cut the booze, the deep sleep, the rem sleep, it just literally goes away. Especially the deep sleep completely goes away. And I track this stuff every single day. My HRV heart rate variability goes way down is just not nearly as where I want it to be. But I wanna keep moving cuz we have so much great things to so many great things I wanna talk about. But let's talk about why everybody's failing. I mean, 75% of males are obese or overweight. Why is everybody failing a fitness?
1 (12m 1s):
This is one of my, I have a couple of life missions. I I got started in life sciences by developing a medical device to treat osteoporosis. But my, my thing now is why do we fall back on standard fitness when it has failed? 99.9% of the people, like probably nine out of 10 or 19 outta 20 people that you know, that habitually go to the gym, you know, whatever, it's three times a week and have done so for years. They don't look any different than the day they signed up.
1 (12m 41s):
True, true. So really what we have is, is outliers now. So a very few select people get in good shape and everybody else just basically stays if they were skinny and doesn't put on any muscle or fat if they were fat and still doesn't put on any muscle. And it's just sort of mind blowing because people still go back to sort of the fitness basics that keep on failing us. Now I wrote in my, in my latest book, weightlifting is a waste of time and, and so is cardio. So you, you look at the different things that like cardiovascular exercise for, it's exactly the opposite of we think cardiovascular exercises in it's going to your body stay as fat as possible as long as possible.
1 (13m 39s):
And if you think about it, that makes sense. If you wanna to turn your body into an endurance, well then it's, it wants to preserve the storage it up tank and the, that when you lose muscle. So you typically, when people get involved in cardiovascular program, cardiovascular training, endurance training, I'm not talking about like high intensity intervals that's very different, like sustain long cardio. The other thing as you're operating regulating cortisol is you're losing muscles, you're muscle and you're preserving body fat, which creates a body that is often referred to as fat.
1 (14m 25s):
So very little muscle, but a lot of sort of cellulite, flat and loose. Totally the opposite of what people on treadmills every day when it comes to weight training, most people have a tendon layout in their body that does not allow them to grow from lifting weights. Now I say most, I got a3 of people have no ability to grow muscle at all when they lift. That was pet really. And that's what triggered to go look at the reasons.
1 (15m 9s):
And then you realize that people that succeed are all genetic outliers because when you compare the two groups, now I'm gonna describe like the pictorial insertion or the middle of your chest sternum. So that's where your pectoral muscle starts. It goes across your one direction or the, depending on if you're right or left, and typically at the beginning of the humorous bone, the upper arm bone. So at the very top where your shoulder joint is, that's where that tendon is inserted. However, a fraction of 1% has it attached further down the humorous bone, sometimes even at the other end.
1 (15m 49s):
What does that mean? That means some people have a lever inside of their body to give them leverage on the weight they're lifting by activating more of the muscle. But this is a very small percentage of people. Mike Tyson has that mutation so he can punch someone who's three inches away from his face and he has access to almost full power. And if you, if you know that and you watch him box he ducks, he actually like without underneath the guy's and gets right in the guy's, hits him when he inches and knocks.
1 (16m 35s):
And, and it only took Mike's, I think one minute of watching him and he says that be the, because recognized the genetic whether could articulate just did, you know, not it's field, but there are just people with these genetic outlier tendon layouts and typically they become the NFL players, they become the stronger people in the world. Now does that mean that the rest of us should do what they're doing? No, because we don't have that genetic layout.
1 (17m 15s):
However, if you look at how they load the body because of the lever they have, they have variable resistance inside of their own body. Those, the, the long is also elastic. So there's like a, you know, like something elastic inside, like a rubber inside their body that's offloading the weaker of motion and then allowing them to handle the real weight in the stronger range of motion. Now how can humans bypass this? Any single person with regular genetics like me who like I spent 20 years lifting weights, I be gained pounds of muscle.
1 (17m 59s):
Like basically what put m you know, more muscle and weight was puberty, like started lifting weights or in high school, the reason I wanted my, my, my learner's permit or my motorcycle license was so I could go to gym. Like I didn't really care about anything else. I already my, it was like I just wanted. And so 20 years of weightlift I was, I had that part figured out, but I was just very like, like at the end of high school I weighed a and was feet tall.
1 (18m 38s):
So that's, that's not, you know, that's really, and it, once I figured this out of, of ligaments and started doing literature review on variable resistance, then it all started making sense because variable resistance showed tremendous muscular blood. And, and I thought, well what I really create variable resistance. And so after I launched my medical device and that's all over thess in 10 different countries, a1 different clinics. So after that was launched and was well on its way, then I launched the X, which really allows to sort of the muscle would want and, and of course muscles metabolic, which will then make you leaner because that metabolic engine is running all at all times, even when you're sleeping.
0 (19m 39s):
So this is all really fascinating to me in Fire Nation. Like I hope you kind of go back and listen to this a couple times because it kind of makes you open up as to some of the things that you know may have been holding you back from doing what you need to do in the weight room for all of these years. And and a quick side note that's on topic though, holy crap. I just got done watching the Mike Tyson documentary on Hulu. It's called Mike and I'll tell you Dr. Jaquish if you have not seen that, it is so fantastically done. It's a docu Is
1 (20m 11s):
It a new one or is it the one that came out in 2009?
0 (20m 13s):
It's brand new. It's a docudrama. So the character that plays Mike Tyson, I think this guy is one of the best actors I have ever, ever seen. He is so fantastic. I mean it's literally next level. The thing is entertaining, but it is so interesting, like you really kind of closed the loop for me that that was open since that documentary and I just watched it a few days ago. Cause this is a new documentary is why that, that that coach was so convinced when he was 13 years old that Mike Tyson, okay,
1 (20m 45s):
His name is Cu Cu watched Mike fight for one minute, one minute he knew. He's like, that's that's
0 (20m 52s):
The god. Now they don't explain why in the mo in the docudrama, but now that you just explain it, I'm like, oh man, that's what he saw was the the
1 (21m 1s):
0 (21m 2s):
Full power. And that's so crazy. And of course it came to be, you know, true. I mean he went like 44 and oh before he started losing a couple fights, but that was because of his own personal demons in his own personal destruction.
1 (21m 15s):
Yeah, he was destroying himself,
0 (21m 16s):
He destroyed himself. I mean, if he had had a, a focused regimen and just said, you know what, I'm just gonna be like a Kobe Bryant in the boxing world and just get up every day and take care of my body, take care of my mind, and just become the best athlete I can be. He would've been unstoppable until literally age finally caught up with him at whatever point that would've been for him. So we have so many things. We're gonna be talking about Fire Nation, about nutrition, exercise steps, short-term discipline and more when we get back from thanking our sponsors.

Dr. Jaquish we are back and I wanna talk now about nutrition because there's a phrase that I tell all my friends and and maybe you can say, John, stop saying that as much as you do because it might not be as true as I think it is, but I tell all my friends that are like, yeah, I went, I went for a five mile run today.
0 (25m 12s):
Like I I'm so proud of myself. I I always tell them, I say, listen Frankie, you can't out exercise your mouth. So whatever you're doing exercise wise, please mimic that nutrition wise because you're, you're just running a trend though going backwards that case, like you're taking three steps forward, four steps back. So talk to us about rebuilding yourself with a few nutrition and exercise steps.
1 (25m 37s):
It's actually worse than you think, John. Our our nutrition is so critical and the engineered foods we have are so awful that, you know, I can spend, I'll give you an example. I spent about three months preparing for a photo shoot recently. Photo shoot went great. Best shaved my life. You know, I, I don't, I'm a natural athlete so I don't take any diuretic drugs or anything like that, so didn't didn't particularly dehydrate outside of, you know, normal, just not drinking any water before the morning before the, the shoot.
1 (26m 21s):
So it took me three months to get to, I was in like six, 7% body fat range. Well the shoot normal eating and still super low carbohydrate, but you know, ribs instead of of lean cuts, I'm like back at 9% in I maybe a week.
0 (26m 51s):
1 (26m 52s):
Yeah. Like, yeah, I s i on mornings ago it like now of water down to two 30 pounds and you know, now I'm like two five, like, what the hell? Some of it's water. Yeah, you can diet for three, but you can screw all that up in one week.
0 (27m 17s):
Let's talk about the steps though. Give us some nutrition steps.
1 (27m 22s):
The first step is just cutting refined sugar out. Like, and that's, and that's tough. Like I, I won't, I, I know it's, it sounds pretty easy and really fit people they've been doing that for, but most people buy products that come packages. Like for me it's, it's pretty much just whatever's at the meat counter. But you know, I'm, I'm, I've been doing this a while so that doesn't to me that that feels normal. So, so there is refined you steaks, that's maple syrup, that's just sugar and it's, it's just in everything.
1 (28m 11s):
So that's like number one. Like stop using sauces, stop drinking your calories. You've probably heard that expression before. Oh yeah, yeah. Like, like any, I even a diet one. The problem with the artificial sugars is they still keep you wanting, you know, they, they just sort of, sort of keep you addicted but you're not calories so really not you also, they have some negative in your gut microbiome. So step one is out your refining sugar. Step two is getting your protein back.
1 (28m 52s):
So getting enough protein is a really interesting subject because once you how protein to gain, there's not room intestines from much else. Like you're supposed to one gram per weight and there's a new meta-analysis that undercuts that just a little bit. But still that once you realize that it's like you gotta protein like it's job. If you that's to a of mine yesterday, I protein do you normally get, he goes, oh, I get plenty.
1 (29m 36s):
I, you know, I have a lunch with some fish and then dinner, you know, maybe a steak or something. Like it ended up being like, grams protein, this guy and guy's wholes, I'm, yeah you should add the end of that number. It's kinda a bigger guy just like, yeah you're like 10th of what you need. And, and that, that really puts things in the perspective in once you do that and like I said, you don't have room in your intestines for the junk food when you look at how much nutritious.
1 (30m 18s):
And I think that's a little bit why when not, I, I hate the sport of bodybuilder. It's not even a sport, it's a pageant but bodybuilders they're eating all the time and they're in shape. Whereas most people who are just lean are sort of talking about pseudo starring all the time. Well neither answer is quite right to get in great shape, but you certainly will live a happier life by putting on a little bit more muscle. Cause you need quality calories and you'll be a happier person, a significant amount of calories and you don't deprived.
1 (31m 1s):
Like I don't ever feel like, oh I'm just starving, I'm miserable. Like it's not like that at all.
0 (31m 7s):
Fire Nation, I really hope again, you're hearing these steps about nutrition and how my little phrase of you can't out exercise your mouth is actually not even going far enough because of how important that is. And there's actually a fantastic book that finally got me to understand how much sugar and white flour are actually drugs. I mean we're talking literal, literal drugs, you know, just like heroin in cocaine or
1 (31m 34s):
Drugs, they compare Yeah, the study that I'm not which book, but there are studies that compare people's desire to have more very similar to the need of cocaine addicts and not heroin was like kinda, well
0 (31m 52s):
Yeah, maybe o's going a little too far too. I honestly am so convinced though. I don't even like to say compare. I like, just like to say like, it is the same because it's like, of course so many people make so much money and so many people's jobs are sort of pent on the sugar industry, on the white flower industry that like is so taboo to say that they're drugs, but they're drugs. Like these are drugs and guess what, we use drugs every day in different, I'm drinking a cup of coffee right now. That's a drug. There's caffeine in there. So be thinking about that Fire Nation be thinking about that. I wanna end with a bang Dr. Jaquish because we've been talking about a lot of cool things and a lot of people are like, okay, well you know man, like I'm gonna have this year goal of doing X, Y and z. They try to have like this long-term motivated plan.
0 (32m 32s):
Like, you know, January 1st is coming up in a little bit. Let's talk about focusing on short-term discipline instead of long term motivation.
1 (32m 41s):
Man, I always say that, you know, when people look at pictures of their favorite athlete and they say, that's my motivation. Yeah, the problem is you're putting an entire fitness journey into one thought and that fitness journey requires you to go many days of responsible eating, many days of responsible exercise. So when people do that, somebody says, Hey, we're getting pizza for, are you coming? The person who looks to motivation, they'll say, yeah, sure of my, my dad will start tomorrow or I deserve a break today.
1 (33m 26s):
You know, usually they don't, but it's just an excuse. So it's easy to find an excuse and to break from what you yourself do. But a discipline person is not like that because when it comes to discipline, you wake up and you say, I'm not gonna screw anything today. I'm gonna stick to all my principles. I'm gonna to, let's say aing day's, you know, you're, it's, you're not growing, so you might as well eat and supporter of that huge, in my book Weightlift is a waste of time on the benefits of, but it it's like, you know, you've gone a day before, nothing.
1 (34m 16s):
Like, let's say you a couple international flights and the connection and then you looked at the in and you're like, yeah, no, cause it's just gross. So it's like everyone knows they can do that. So just for today, let's just do it. Perfect. And what do you know? It's not so hard just one day, right? Well then you wake up the next day you say the yourself like, I've just gotta get through today. I don't have to, I don't have to think about, you know, what I want my body to look like four years from now. In fact, that's kinda a toxic thought because it's so far away.
1 (34m 56s):
It gives you room for excuses. You just focus on what's in front of you at the moment and then you'll do it right every day.
0 (35m 4s):
Listen with a bang, give us one key takeaway from our entire conversation today, then give us the best way that we can connect with you to learn more, any call to action you have. And then we'll say goodbye
1 (35m 17s):
In some way, in some manner. Training with variable resistance. There's a couple different ways to do that. I talk about those in my book, but this will trigger everyone to grow. So if you've lifted weight before and thought like, wow, yeah, I kind of put a lot of work into that and really didn't get much out of it. Check out variable resistance. Check out book weight Living is a waste of time. It'll absolutely change your life in your training. You don't need a buy my product necessarily. I, I do think the product is a very convenient way to go at home gym and it'll blow away power rack As far as results, we have 40 professional athletes that use it.
1 (36m 2s):
Mostly NFL players. They're, you know, they're the biggest and strongest guys pretty much in the world. I know power's try and act like they are, but I highly doubt they would turn down a $20 million the, and instead make like $500 a year with their power lifting needs. The, so that's, that's the key piece of advice, just variable resistance train with variable resistance.
