  1. Damn a neuroscientist, psychologist, physical therapist, exercise scientist, and strength and conditioning coach. Huberman really is the johnny sins of fitness.

    That's sarcasm if you couldn't tell. This guy is such a quack. He uses his credentials as a neuroscientist to portray himself as an expert across multiple fields and it's disgusting. I studied neuroscience in grad school for physical therapy but that doesn't mean I'm an expert in neuroscience. It's gross how he takes advantage of the average persons ignorance for his own gain

  2. Also genuine question about the placebo thing Tim mentioned – when i sort out my upper body posture and stand as correctly as possible, I feel mentally sharper. Will having correct posture benefit the communication of the nervous system, therefore when you have better posture, neck included in this, you will actually have your body/brain communicating better so you will actually be sharper in the things you do. The things i understand from what ive heard it makes sense for how things connect in the spinal column, so wondering if i am right in thinking this would not be just placebo? An answer to this would be greatly appreciated if possible!

  3. rofl i tried the phone texting thing but genuinely just feel like a massive dickhead, more of a mental challenge than physical ???? should probably do it though tbh

  4. You should get Neal Hallinan for podcast here. His story in Postural Restoration training and neck things is amazing.

  5. I’ve experienced upper spine/neck pain when doing intense overhead pressing movements in the gym.

    Could someone tell me how to avoid this?
