Blue Cannatine

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency.

It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out. Get yours at troscriptions.com and use the code BOOMER for a discount.

Full disclosure: I am involved with the company (I like the product that much).

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 which is triggering an anabolic response.
