40+ Female 1:41 Dead Hang – Beating Peter Attia’s Longevity Challenge @PeterAttiaMD @EricaLeeBaker

 

This is one of Peter Attia’s strength tests as discussed with @hubermanlab in “Best Exercises for Overall Health & Longevity | Dr. Peter Attia & Dr. Andrew Huberman” (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN0pR…) My wife Erica @EricaLeeBaker, a seasoned yoga instructor and hybrid trainer, aced her first try at the challenge.

Peter Attia recommends a dead hang challenge with a duration of 1:30 for women and 2 minutes for men as a benchmark for grip strength and overall physical fitness. This test serves as a measure of muscular endurance and strength, particularly important for health and functionality as we age. The distinction in time reflects differences in average strength capacities between genders. For more detailed information on Peter Attia’s recommendations and fitness philosophy, you can visit his website or explore his various publications and podcasts on health and longevity.

Grip strength is important as we age for several reasons:

Overall Health Indicator: Grip strength is a strong predictor of overall health and longevity. Studies have shown that lower grip strength is associated with increased mortality risk, indicating it’s a useful measure of general health status.

Functional Independence: A strong grip is essential for daily tasks like opening jars, turning doorknobs, or carrying groceries. As we age, maintaining grip strength is crucial for preserving independence and the ability to perform everyday activities.

Muscle Strength and Sarcopenia Prevention: Grip strength reflects broader muscle health. Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and strength, can be mitigated through exercises that include grip strengthening, thereby improving quality of life in older adults.

Balance and Fall Prevention: Good grip strength can aid in stabilizing and catching oneself during a slip or fall, which is particularly important for the elderly as it reduces the risk of severe injuries.

Correlation with Cognitive Health: Some research suggests a correlation between grip strength and cognitive function. Maintaining physical strength may have positive implications for brain health.

Chronic Disease Indicator: Weak grip strength has been linked to higher risks of cardiovascular diseases and can be an early indicator of conditions like diabetes.

Maintaining or improving grip strength is thus a key component of a healthy aging process, helping to ensure a higher quality of life, reduced risk of injuries, and overall better health outcomes in older age.

Working with Mike has been a game-changer. From day one, it was clear that I had stumbled upon a gem in the world of personal training. First and foremost, Mike has a remarkable setup at his home for one-on-one training. It's the perfect blend of a comfortable, private space and a fully-equipped gym, creating an ideal environment for focused workouts. The moment I stepped in, I felt at ease and motivated to push my limits. What sets Mike apart is his ability to craft tailored, bespoke workout plans that are thoughtful and effective. Regardless of whether you're a beginner taking your first steps in the world of weightlifting or someone who's been exercising for years, he has a knack for designing programs that cater to your unique needs and goals. Every session is a personalized journey towards achieving your fitness goals. It's clear that Mike has a deep understanding of physiology and exercise science, and he uses that knowledge to optimize each session. But it's not just about the workouts. Mike is an exceptional motivator and mentor. His passion for fitness is contagious - he listens intently, offers guidance with patience, and ensures that you not only perform exercises correctly but also understand the 'why' behind them. Thanks to Mike, I've not only regained my passion for lifting weights, but I also have achieved outstanding results in a very short amount of time. I feel stronger, more explosive, and even faster, all thanks to his expertise and support. If you're searching for a personal trainer who can provide a top-notch training experience in a welcoming and tailored setting, look no further than Mike. Working with him has been a fantastic experience, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone on their fitness journey.

I started with MB Wellness in early March 2023. The passion Michael brings to every session is second to none, whether it is a cardio day, stretch/yoga day, or strength day he is always encouraging me and talking through some "roadblocks" I may have had the previous week. If you are a 40+ male and looking to get back in shape in a private one-one setting, Michael is your man. He will guide you physically and mentally getting you to your goals and beyond.

Mike has been amazing to work with. Someone to give advice and keep me accountable without ever talking down to me or making me feel bad about my choices or decisions. He has helped me with Diet and Exercise, understands my goals and my situation, helps me through at my pace. He is invested in me doing better. Give him a shot.

I have known Michael for over 30 years. I was so happy when I seen that he was doing this Health And Wellness program because he is in very good shape and he is very smart and knowledgeable about what he’s telling people to do to lose weight and eat healthy after just one month of working with Michael at 215 pounds. I have already lost 5 pounds and I am very motivated to reach my goal which is 185 just talking to him about what I was eating and doing wrong what’s so helpful for me whether was in person or over the phone he gives you plenty of information and details to work with while visiting his home. His family and him were very welcoming and warm to me as always I couldn’t of asked for a better person to help me with my journey , and anybody that needs help with their health and wellness. I would highly recommend Michael to be somebody to work with.
