When it comes to building muscle and gains, many people won’t tell you what it’s like to be so big that you break car seats.
How does weighing 315 pounds impact sleep, clothing, and body temperature?
What are some of the other unforeseen challenges that come with being a massive bodybuilder?
On this episode, I continue my conversation with legendary bodybuilder, and CEO and Founder of RxMuscle.com, Dave Palumbo, who talks about what it felt like being a 315-pound ripped bodybuilder, and how going through challenging legal issues led him to find his purpose.
When it comes to building muscle, many people fail to achieve results because of incorrect form, and they fail to learn the biochemical techniques of bodybuilding. What are some of the key ways to make sure you’re achieving peak performance? What does it take to transform your body significantly? How can we make sure we’re activating our muscles at the right level? On this episode, I’m joined by professional bodybuilder, and CEO and Founder of RxMuscle.com, Dave Palumbo, who shares how he became a 315-pound ripped bodybuilder.
If you eat a lot of food without creating the stimulus for muscle building, you can take all the drugs in the world but it won’t do anything.
Squat, bench and row: if you learn to do these things well, you will build muscle.
Poke the muscle you’re supposed to be working so that you can have mind-muscle connection.
At the start of the show, Dave shared how he got started, and how he made the switch from lean runner, to a world-class bodybuilder. Next, we talked about how his life as an endurance runner contributed to his results in gaining muscle. We talked about some of the causes of people being so misinformed about weight training.
We also discussed;
The fundamentals of bodybuilding are impeccable form, achieving the full range of motion, and controlling the weights you lift. The problem is, many people in the gym won’t be able to learn the neurological patterning that is necessary to contract muscle fibers, and as a result, they never get any gains. You have to learn and train with someone in person; someone who knows what they are doing. Focusing just on getting more reps and sets won’t get you anywhere.

The human body has its own inflammation signalling system that we can optimize in order to heal ourselves. Why does the sick care system’s way of dealing with inflammation actually destroy this system? How does regenerative medicine work? What are the different types of regenerative tools and which ones are best? On this episode, I’m joined by Buckeye Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation founder, Dr. Roy “Buzz” Korth, who shares on the approaches of regenerative medicine and how they can be employed to heal the body.
Testosterone deficiency has more to do with stress levels than age nowadays.
Through inflammation, the body begins a process of healing itself through stem cells and growth factors. When people take pain medication, they get rid of the pain, but they also stop the process of healing.
Stem cells need oxygen to release growth factors. The areas that degenerate are tendons, ligaments and joints and that’s because after puberty, those areas don’t get circulation.
At the start of the show, Dr. Roy talked about the state of veteran healthcare, and the correlation between stress and hormone deficiencies. Next, we talked about why inflammation can actually be a good thing, and the process of extracting and getting stem cells. We also talked about the difference between stem cell grades and uses.
We also discussed;
The biggest issue we have in healthcare right now is that the so-called solutions to problems are nothing more than Band-Aids, quick fixes and short-term patches that don’t fix the root causes. This is where regenerative medicine comes in. It leans heavily on the fact that the body has the ability to heal itself, and if we get the right tools, we can help them regenerate. Pain and inflammation are warning signs and a signal that triggers the body’s stem cells and growth factors which will heal any wound. When we take pain medicine, SSRI’s and all the other quick fixes, we don’t actually solve the real issue. By employing the right tools, we can actually address what’s really at the core.

One of the biggest crises in health right now is the low levels of sperm count and fertility in young men, and the question of what the clinical community can do about it. Why are we experiencing such a decline in the reproductive potential of men who should be in their prime? Does testosterone therapy need to be at super-therapeutic levels all the time? How can men on testosterone therapy still maintain their fertility? On this episode, I’m joined by the Director of Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the University of Miami, Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, who talks about how to improve the reproductive health of men.
The reasons we’re experiencing low sperm count in young men are obesity, environmental influences, stress, and social media.
Short-acting testosterone is better for fertility and reproductive potential because it mimics the body’s natural pulsativity.
The reason testosterone therapy affects fertility and blocks metagenesis is because if it’s used over a long term, it blocks FSH and LH.
The restorative protocol for people who took supra-physiological doses of testosterone for long periods of time is HCG and clomiphene to jumpstart testosterone and sperm production.
At the start of the show, Dr. Ramasamy shared how he got started, and what’s causing the crisis in male fertility right now. Next, we talked about why the biggest battle in the clinical optimization space is misinformation, and why it’s equally important to educate consumers as much doctors. We also talked about why faster-acting testosterone is better for improving fertility, and why the insurance-attached prescribing community is so afraid of testosterone.
We also discussed:
For the last few decades, testosterone therapy has opted for long-acting preparations, but the problem is that it has impacted the reproductive potential of many men. When it comes to fertility, maintaining testicular size, and reproductive potential, the pendulum has to swing back to a shorter acting form to mimic the body’s natural physiology. That way, we can help men boost fertility and improve their health.
The rise and prevalence of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders is alarming, and the healthcare industry is doing nothing about it. Why is Big Pharma letting this crisis worsen? What nutritional solutions can we put in place to start solving this issue? On this episode I’m joined by Dr. John Lewis, the Chief Scientific Officer and Co-Founder of Nurish.Me, to talk about the products his company develops and how they are helping people regain cognitive functioning.
At the start of the show, Dr. Lewis talked about the importance of taking care of your health, and why he chose a plant-based diet. We talked about why Big Pharma would prefer the state of health to remain the same. We also discussed polysaccharides and why they are so important. Towards the end, we discussed the connection between the lack of weight training and the health issues Baby Boomers experience. Dr. Lewis also talked about his Alzheimer’s study.
We also discussed:
The medical system is built to keep people sick for years so that they will constantly pay for medication, run out of money, and pass on bad behaviors to the younger generation. This is why Big Pharma has not stepped in with a meaningful solution to the neurodegenerative disorder problem: there’s no financial incentive for them to do so. There are other solutions however, in the form of enhanced nutrition with polysaccharides. These sugars have been extremely powerful in patients regaining their cognitive functioning and neuroplasticity. They have helped many people start getting their minds back, and we could save the masses by making itt a widespread treatment plan.
