New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– The Artificial Intelligence Bike Now In My Office
If you didn't get a chance to read the recent study: “Reduced Exertion High-Intensity Interval Training is More Effective at Improving Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Cardiometabolic Health than Traditional Moderate-Intensity Continuous Training“, I'll sum it up for you…extremely brief spurts (I mean, very brief, as in 10-20 seconds) performed during a quick 10 minute a day workout achieved superior health and cardiovascular benefits than a long, boring, steady-state workout.
Enter the CAR.O.L bike. Standing for CARdiovascular Optimization Logic, CAR.O.L is an AI-powered, interactive exercise bike with self-learning algorithms that took four years to program. “She” automates each HIIT workout and guides you through touchscreen and audio prompts. This thing – based on studies like those above – is clinically proven to give you the same cardio benefits of a 45-minute jog in under 9 minutes, with only 40 seconds of hard work. It has built-in AI algorithms that personalize your resistance to guarantee you hit max power every session in order to deplete your glycogen stores as fast as possible, and studies have shown that after just four to eight weeks of workouts with CAR.O.L three times a week, your body’s insulin sensitivity will increase by 28% or more.
It's incredibly convenient, and better yet, no sweat at the office…so you can just get on and get off during one of your “Pomodoro” breaks. You can click here to get the bike and use code GREENFIELD for $150 off.
– Great Book I Discovered For Fixing Knee Pain
“The Knee Pain Bible“: On a recent trip to Vancouver, I had a sudden jolt of pain on the front of my knee while descending the airport stairs with two heavy bags. Once I got to my gate, I pulled out my little massage ball I travel with, mashed my adductors (not my knee!) for two minutes, and voila. Pain gone. I learned this trick from the handy little book: “The Knee Pain Bible“.
In this book, you'll learn:
• Where your knee pain is actually coming from, and how to get rid of it.
• What IT band syndrome is and how to release the muscles causing the irritation.
• How to fix runner’s knee, and jumper’s knee as easy as 1, 2, 3.
• The difference between trigger points, and adhesions, how they are creating your knee pain, and how to get rid of them.
• Why your specific knee pain diagnosis is not a death sentence.
And so much more! For 16 years, the author suffered with unimaginable knee pain and has since not only healed his own, but countless others. This book is well worth owning if you ever get knee pain on the front, side or back of your knee. You can grab it here.

In this week's new article (link in bio), I’m going to give you an overview of several of the problematic issues I’ve discovered many people experience on a #ketogenicdiet, compare and contrast a #carnivorediet with #ketosis, and also give you as many tips as I possibly can about how to do a ketotic or a carnivore diet “the right way” (based on my own personal experience and research.) Feel free to leave your questions, comments, and feedback on the article post on my website (link in bio.) I’m open to any and all thoughts, criticisms, feedback or additional ideas that could be helpful to others. (Btw this photo was taken prior to me nixing most roughage and vegetables)

The Ultimate Clean Energy Bar for Hard-Charging, High-Achievers
As a busy CEO, coach, professional athlete, international speaker, and top 100 podcast host—I needed a bar that would meet the intense demands of my lifestyle, while also satisfying my strict nutrition and purity requirements. I’m happy to say, THIS IS IT.
After years of habitually eating low-quality protein bars, I started having elevated blood sugar, gut rot, energy swings and toxins present in my blood tests. So I wanted to do something better. I wanted to learn how can a bar provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor and longevity issues from excess protein intake?
You're about to discover exactly how I did it. Meet the Kion Clean Energy Bar.
