I first interviewed Sebastian's father, and inventor of the Vasper, in the show "How To Get 2 Hours Of Exercise In Just 20 Minutes.", but plenty has happened since then... ...particularly the fact that I've been using the Vasper every morning for the past 3 months to experiment with just how good it actually is at building and maintaining fitness with a minimalist dose of exercise. So what exactly is this thing? Vasper is a complete exercise system based on three scientifically proven principles:...

For the past three years, I've been tirelessly toiling behind the scenes to create the book I've personally always wished existed: a complete guide to optimizing the human body, mind, and spirit—written with no stone unturned, no fluff, no “watered down” drivel—just pure, hardcore, practical, from-the-trenches content. I won't lie: nearly every big New York publishing house turned me down for this book.

It was too big. (The completed manuscript was over 1100 pages, and we trimmed it down to 608 pages for the final release.)

It was too comprehensive. (It wasn't a flash-in-the-pan, pop-culture, buy-it-at-your-airport-bookstore read that someone could get through in a few days then toss and move on.)

It was too edgy. (After all, I cover everything from the energy medicine to enemas to crazy sex tips to psychedelics and far beyond.)

But nonetheless, I decided to plow forward and write a book that I personally wanted to read and that I've always wanted to write: a big, beautiful, hardcover blueprint that anyone could rely on for years as a cookbook for all things performance, fat loss, digestion, brain, sleep, sex, spirit, happiness, anti-aging, longevity, and much more.

(Heck, just the section on longevity covers every molecule in existence that can maximize your lifespan, and is over 173 pages alone!)

I call the final result “Boundless: Upgrade Your Brain, Optimize Your Body & Defy Aging,” and you can consider it to be the last book you'll ever need to unlock unparalleled breakthroughs in performance, recovery, sleep, gut health, hormone balance, and much more.

In this podcast, Angelo Keely, a former podcast guest you can listen to here and the founder and CEO of Kion, puts me in the hotseat and we reveal a ton of the tips from the book, including hacks, tricks and strategies for longevity, sleep, jet lag, the immune system, fat loss, fasting and beyond.

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-Why Ben wrote Boundless [6:30]

  • "A book I've always wanted to write, and to read"
  • Brain, Body, Spirit optimization
  • Beyond Training was largely body focused, but didn't get into brain, spirit, anti-aging components

-Who the book is for [10:15]

  • Anyone who wants optimal energy all day long
  • Give ideal combination of lifespan and health span
  • Written based off personal experiences, podcast guest experiences, etc.
  • It's not meant for quick consumption

-Why Ben wrote the book the way he did and how a reader should go about consuming it [16:15]

  • It's a blend of time in the trenches and well-researched science
  • Web page for each chapter; references, podcasts, etc.
  • "This book is more of a treasure," something you can explore for months and months
