If you’ve seen the recent Bulletproof Radio episode featuring Jim Stray-Gundersen MD, one of the world’s leading experts on Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training, you know I’m a fan of training smarter, not harder. BFR is one of the most powerful fitness hacks I’ve ever seen! It manipulates your body’s circulatory system to produce incredible results with minimal effort, light resistance, and limited time investment. BFR works by using the inflatable elastic bands you’ll find in your box to safely slow the flow of blood to your limbs working muscle. While the blood flow is restricted, you do shorts bursts of simple, low-load exercises that don’t require much intensity. As blood accumulates in the muscles, you’ll experience a “pump,” and lactic acid will build up, causing you to feel a “burn” comparable to intense anaerobic training. The strong fatigue signal you will experience afterward tricks your brain into thinking that you did a much harder workout, and it will trigger a natural hormone cascade to repair and recover from the perceived heavy load, even though you put far less actual stress on your body and imparts benefits to your whole body, not just the limbs you were exercising. Increased growth hormone production promotes a multitude of benefits, including increased strength, improved bone density,
more efficient fat breakdown, better insulin response, sharper cognitive functioning, and a boosted immune system, among many others. BFR training has been shown to be extremely effective at reducing the symptoms of Metabolic syndrome, which has been found as a common denominator in 90% of the severe cases of COVID-19. Regular exercise like BStrong BFR Training will maintain robust fitness levels that help reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, while also increasing your sense of well-being and promoting better energy levels. All of these things are needed now more than ever!
At nearly $300, this BFR system makes this our strongest box ever, both literally and from a value standpoint, and I can’t wait for you to experience the impact it can have on your physical health.

You may have seen the recent trend of Perineum Sunning making its way around the internet as the latest health hack. Allegedly, getting 30 seconds of sun “where the sun don’t shine” can give you an energy boost and increase Vitamin D production equivalent to being in the sun all day. I have cited studies that demonstrate testosterone boosts from sun exposure to the testes and that UV light can have a positive impact on your gut bacteria. Still, I have yet to find any scientific studies showing that getting sun on your butthole will lead to anything but a sunburn. The skin on your undercarriage is thin and very sensitive, so I recommend you be extremely careful if you are going to give this “ancient Taoist practice” a try. Sun exposure has some amazing benefits, especially if you can work in earthing as well, and I hope you’ve been able to get outside to enjoy the outdoors while you’ve been stuck at home.
To keep things light and fun, we wanted to present you with this
Special Edition Dave Asprey Perineum Sunning Kit … that my kids helped me design.
Here’s how it works:
1. Strip down to your “bday suit” on a sunny day.
2. Put the printout down on the ground with the “SUN”
label pointing in the direction of the sun.
3. Lay on your back with your butt lined up with the
diagram of my behind (next page).
4. Raise your legs in the air and spread them apart.
5. Relax, take a selfie, and enjoy the sun
