On this week’s episode of the Escape Your Limits podcast, we are joined by John Jaquish, a doctor of biomechanical engineering on a mission to educate the world as to why traditional weightlifting is a waste of time.

Driven by an obsessive interest in bone health stemming from his mothers’ osteoporosis diagnosis, invented the X3® – a device that improves bone strength, whilst limiting the risk of injury, through the application of variable (adaptive) resistance.

Dr. Jaquish is absolutely committed to advancing oesteogenic load research and travels the world speaking about its implications. A number of his articles have been printed in medical journals and he has also written and published a couple of books: ‘Oesteogenic Loading’ and ‘Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time – And So Is Cardio. There’s A Better Way To Have The Body You Want’.

Whilst Dr. Jaquish is a disruptor and very happy to question the effectiveness of traditional weight training techniques, his findings are also supported by several independent studies. His methods are used in training the world's most elite athletes and associations such as the entire Miami Heat organization, various NFL and NBA players, as well as Olympians.


In this podcast, John talks extensively about:

● Strength training and maximizing muscle growth.

● Volume training, hypertrophy and stretch-induced training.

● Nutrition, Hydration and ‘The Carnivore Diet.’

● Semaglutide, weight loss and lifestyle changes.

● Big changes coming to Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

● Genetic outliers and impacts on training.
