Ideas

1

The four pillars of exercises are stability, strength, aerobic efficiency & anaerobic performance.
Ideally you are strong in all 4. The more of each of these the better.

Stability is the one that's least understood; it's the ability to transfer load from the outside world to the body and vice versa.

An analogy is of a race car versus a street car. What makes race car's so unique is the chassis and tyres that's constructed in such a way that every bit of the cars power makes it to the road, which is why a racecar with half the total power of a street car would still smoke it on a racetrack.

Caloric restriction, dietary restriction, time restriction are the three levers for diet.
Caloric restriction is how much you consume, dietary restriction is what to consume & time restriction is how often to consume.

Always pull one, sometimes pull two, occasionally pull three, never pull none.

Never pay attention to only relative risk without absolute risk.
Relative risk is saying that a new wonder drug reduces a certain illness by 50%.

Whilst absolute risk is saying that the new wonder drug reduces that illness from 2 per million to 1 per million.

Have both the relative and the absolute details to see the full picture.
