Physical Conditioning for a Lifetime of Flourishing

Doug McGuff

Presented at: TOS-CON 2021

Date: Jul 21, 2021

The physical health and functional capacity of adults in modern, first-world societies typically begin to decline as early as the teenage years—and continue diminishing throughout the course of their lives, culminating in a state of dysfunction and dependence during the final decades. Although this has become commonplace, it is neither normal nor necessary.

Our pre-modern ancestors enjoyed high levels of physical health and functionality that, barring injury or infection, continued into advanced age. Likewise, modern-day hunter-gatherers tend to remain physically healthy and agile well into their later years.
What is the difference that makes the difference?

In this presentation, Dr. McGuff will discuss the science of “health-span” and how a regimen of brief and infrequent high-intensity exercise can dramatically improve your health and (barring injury or infection) foster a lifetime of flourishing.
