In this episode: optimized exercise, recovering, machine use, increasing your healthspan, and long-term thinking.

This week we are joined by Brad’s friend and personal trainer, Dean Turner, to discuss the changing landscape of strength training, and how principles such as consistency and adherence coupled with rest and recovery can also be applied to both your fitness and FI journey. We often talk about how the path to FI is not just about working towards a monetary goal, but rather creating a better life for yourself. For some this can mean taking a personal account of your health, and taking actionable steps to improve it. Just as making financial changes requires consistency, making physical changes requires the same. While these changes don’t happen overnight, these actions continuously build off of one another and make you stronger!
