    Everyone has to get old sometime, but what if, at least for some aspects of aging, we didn't have to? Imagine if the loss of heart size and the stiffness that often comes with aging could be reversed, even well into late middle-age.
    And not by a little - by a lot. Today's guest, Dr. Benjamin Levine, has shown that with the right exercise protocol, people who were sedentary most of their lives could reverse up to 20 years of heart aging. Dr. Levine is one of the world's leading experts in understanding how the heart adapts under a variety of conditions, whether that's exercise, elite athleticism, or hospital bedrest. Or even highly exotic conditions, like prolonged exposure to microgravity. He is the founding director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at UT Southwestern in Dallas, a leading facility renowned for its research in cardiovascular physiology. His expertise also extends into space medicine, where he advises NASA, underscoring his broad, deeply fundamental understanding of how the heart changes over time. Additionally, he is a recognized authority in sports cardiology, consulting for organizations such as the NCAA, NFL, NHL, and various professional sports leagues.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    (00:06:21) Are 3 weeks of bed rest worse for fitness than 30 years of aging? (00:10:08) Why untrained individuals recover fitness faster than athletes following bed rest (00:11:40) Does exercise protect against long COVID? (00:14:31) "COVID triad testing" guidelines for evaluating heart health in athletes (00:16:17) Why strict bed rest is a model for space flight (00:17:14) How 12 weeks of bed rest affects heart size (00:18:42) Why a brand-new rubber band mimics a lifetime of endurance training (00:22:14) The exercise dose that preserves youthful cardiovascular structure (00:24:22) The exercise regimen that reversed 20 years of heart aging (00:28:05) What it takes to reverse vascular age by 15 years in 70-year-olds (00:33:29) Benefits of starting an exercise regimen in your 70s [benefits that don't involve cardiac remodeling] (00:39:17) Considering the risks of high-intensity exercise (00:42:42) Balancing high-intensity & moderate-intensity training (00:47:39) Training for health vs. training for performance (00:48:47) Why muscle mass & cardiorespiratory fitness are like retirement funds (00:49:58) Make exercise a part of your personal hygiene (00:51:01) Why does VO2 max correlate with longevity? (00:58:29) The 2018 JAMA study on cardiorespiratory fitness & mortality (01:04:06) How does change in fitness over time affect mortality? (01:06:19) Why exercise non-responders should consider "increasing the dose" (01:10:08) The 2 limiting factors for improving VO2 max in competitive athletes (01:13:05) How marathon training affects heart size in sedentary young people (01:17:20) Heart adaptations in purely strength-trained vs. endurance athletes (01:23:09) Why pure strength-trainers should incorporate endurance training (01:26:53) How strength training affects blood pressure (exercise pressor reflex) (01:31:27) How exercise influences cardiac output in mitochondrial myopathy patients (01:33:25) Does CrossFit count as endurance training? (01:35:50) What's the best exercise for improving blood pressure? (01:40:57) Lifestyle strategies for treating hypertension (01:43:26) Why recovery is key to reaping the benefits of a training stimulus (01:47:22) The best indicator of being overtrained (01:48:22) Heart rate brackets & running pace estimates for training zones 2-5 (01:54:46) Why heart rate variability is a poor indicator of recovery (02:00:02) Why do men tend to be faster runners than women?

    Adequate, quality sleep is essential for the body's recovery and repair, promoting optimal physical and mental health. Getting a good night's sleep can be challenging, especially in our modern world, but we can take steps to overcome those challenges. In this Aliquot, we present a mashup of our best resources on sleep, featuring insights from Dr. Matthew Walker, Dr. Satchin Panda, and me.
     
    In this preview, we discuss:
     
    (00:02:13) How exercise timing affects deep sleep (00:08:03) Do saunas and hot baths increase sleep-enhancing hormones? (00:12:33) Can learning and meditation boost deep sleep? (00:14:10) Do scented oils, like lavender, impact sleep? (00:14:47) The insulin-tryptophan-melatonin connection (00:19:20) Why carb-heavy meals make us sleepy
    In the full episode available only for Premium Members, we also discuss:
    Can calming music, akin to lullabies, curb pre-sleep ruminations? The effect of air quality on sleep The effect of low-level noise on sleep fragmentation Whether or not time in nature transforms sleep quality Could melatonin supplementation increase REM sleep — at the cost of decrease deep sleep? How my sauna and hot tub routine preps me for sleep Is there evidence white noise helps sleep and can calming music curb pre-sleep ruminations? The differential impact of morning vs. evening light in slow wave sleep Can adjusting our body's thermal cues unlock deeper sleep? (increase deep sleep) Improving sleep with science-backed heat therapy protocols and how my sauna and hot tub routine preps me for sleep The four pillars of sleep How much sleep is enough? (from newborns to older adults) The surprising lifestyle factors that synergize to maintain glymphatic clearance in aging brains (sleep, exercise, and omega-3s) Are modern lifestyles and "social jetlag" turning us into shift workers? Building resilience against circadian disruptions Five immediate steps to enhance sleep quality tonight How long caffeine stays in the system The effect of alcohol and marijuana on sleep, particularly REM sleep
