Peak Performance. Mens Sana #3

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
Physical health, strength and wellbeing for intellectuals: in his monthly Interintellect Salon, Ben Fleming addresses what’s beyond sitting and thinking?
Why do people become bodybuilders, do ultramarathons, and feel the need to optimise everything to become peak physical performers? Is this even healthy? what’s wrong with just reading a book and being a good friend? Why do people sacrifice so much just to get abs and run far? Is it just vanity, insecurity, pride? Is there something else you get out of pushing yourself to perform?
This salon is part of a track of salons on the topic of good physical health, happening on the first Monday of each month . The title of this track is “Mens Sana in Corpore Sano” which means “A Healthy Mind in A Healthy Body”. My desire is to think deeply and collaboratively about physical health, gathering the collective wisdom of our experience, but also to apply that thinking to our physical bodies, turning theory into practice.
