THE PROBLEM:

Aging comes with loss of muscle, strength, bone, mobility, balance, and overall fitness. Fat goes up. Insulin sensitivity goes down. Stamina wanes and activity levels drop, making the problem worse. Horizons shrink, physical independence withers, prescription drugs multiply, and a life of quiet desperation becomes increasingly desperate. 

Aging and loss of independence.

THE DIAGNOSIS

That's the Sick Aging Phenotype. Decreased activity and poor nutrition rob us of muscle mass, insulin sensitivity, and exercise tolerance. A domino effect ensues, culminating in stroke, heart attack, hip fracture, and loss of independence. The Sick Aging Phenotype requires powerful medicine to arrest and reverse. 

THE PRESCRIPTION

That's lifestyle medicine, with exercise taking center stage in the form of physical training. Exercise is the single most powerful form of medicine available to combat the Sick Aging Phenotype, and The Barbell Prescription is the safest and most powerful form of exercise medicine there is, capable of transforming the Sick Aging Phenotype into the Athlete of Aging. 

IS IT RIGHT FOR ME? 

Anybody can take The Barbell Prescription. That's because it can be precisely dosed and tailored to your individual needs. If you can stand up out of a chair, put your hands on top of your head, and lift a kitten off the floor, you can take your medicine.
