Ask Ted 75: Why Modern Life is Destroying Masculinity, Did Hunter-Gatherers Really Get More Sleep, Are Longer Rest Intervals Better For Building Muscle and the Best Way to Workout in Your 50’s

 

Modern life is full of entertainment and opportunities. That said, the convenience of modern life tends to make men mentally and physically weak.

Learn why this happens and what you need to do to build your masculinity. Second, there’s a lot of romanticizing how pre-industrial cultures lived–including the idea that they slept better and more than we did.

Much of the reasoning behind this assertion is that our modern technology is to blame for our poor sleep habits.

In October of 2015, a research study was conducted on the sleep habits of three different hunter-gatherer tribes.

Learn what scientists found when they studied the sleep hygiene of these tribes as well as learning what you can do do get better quality sleep.

In the third topic, we examine a study that looked at short (1 minute) and long (3 minutes) rest periods in between sets of exercise to determine which was more beneficial for building strength and muscle.

Lastly, I answer a question from a listener about the best workouts for men in their 50’s and how to workout to get better results.
