How would a scientist approach getting stronger and leaner? Is cardio getting in the way of your fat loss goals? And do we really need things to be a struggle in order to prove that we’re smart, special, or strong? Dr. John Jaquish is a scientist, inventor, and author of “Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time: So is Cardio, and There’s a Better Way to Have the Body You Want.” He’s very outspoken about how the fitness industry is a failure, and he believes he has the scientific data to back up his claims. He invented the X3 home fitness product which can fit in a bag. He claims that, along with an unconventional diet, by using this thing for only 10 minutes a day you can have the body of someone who spends hours in the gym every week. Full disclosure: I don’t own the X3 product at this time, and I was not compensated in any way for conducting this interview. In this interview: Why is weight lifting a waste of time from scientific perspective? How does cardio keep you fat? Why “no pain, no gain” is outdated Why muscle soreness has nothing to do with a “good” workout The 99% failure rate of the fitness industry Plus: A complete workout in only ten minutes?
