B Strong
I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. B Strong made great innovations on this technology.
I use it almost every day: high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. In 20 minutes, I have a fantastic workout that is triggering an anabolic response.

Vielight combines science and engineering ingenuity to develop unique devices that deliver photons to the brain and inner systems. Their mission is to create photobiomodulation devices that are safe and effective – to help improve one’s quality of life.
The Neuro Alpha is a staple in my stress resilience and sleep improvement routine. I get better sleep, better focus, and less anxiety around public speaking. And… increased ability to drop into flow.
