    So, I am the type of person who has to dive into things head first. If I don't go at it 100%, then I'm not interested. It's how I am as a father, as a husband, as a mycophile, and as a gym rat. Being that I have two very young children, I have limited time for my passions and hobbies. I used to do a lot of rock climbing, but when my first son was born, continuing that would have caused too much marital and financial stress. So I started dragging my wife and son on multiple hikes a week. Once winter came, I couldn't do that, so I finally got that gym membership I had always said I would never get. Turns out I love the gym, and I go three times a week. This wasn't enough to satisfy my needs though. I also needed something more mentally challenging, something science related. At random I came across a hiking buddy while on the Appalachian Trail not far from my house, and we found some oyster mushrooms (which he taught me how to identify). We took them home, and they were delicious! A couple weeks later I just so happened to see "Back To Roots" Blue Oyster Grow kits at Home Depot. I bought one, and found that hobby I was craving. Instantly I became obsessed. So, the point of this story is, aside from being a father and a husband, it's Nature, fitness, and mushrooms that keep me occupied, happy, and sane.

    Been a while since you've posted this - so to follow up, how far down the 'mushroom performance' rabbit hole are you nowadays? I review health products for a living and like to keep active as well. I am always chasing the edge for recovery and as far as medicinal mushrooms go, reishi is my go-to for better sleep which is the biggest boost to physical performance I've found,

    Yeah, if you're not handicapped, sure.

    You have a good quality in you - you go all the way. When I wanted to start life anew after my accident, I signed up for sports to be tested for paranormal events. It's not psychic, it's people with disabilities. My workouts help build muscle mass and I get lighter for myself. I have no legs and one arm, and it's uncomfortable enough to be lifted all the time by a woman. My wife was able to have 3 kids and I can't be strong for her. What helps me is cardio classes and some quick physical activity

    Fitness and mushrooms? Hah, sounds like another teenage comedy. But, I'm glad you found yourself in sport. When I was in my 20s, I was just like you - the type of person who has to dive into things head first. But with time, I'm just enjoying the simplicity of things. As far as it makes me feel good, I'm okay. "My mushrooms" is doing free outdoor workouts for everyone. Making someone better makes me better at the same time. Sound weird, but it's my philosophy for the latter days. I'm also practicing cryotherapy and skin therapy like this one https://www.xcellr8.health/body-sculpting/. It's not a biohacking, but the closest one I can afford.

    I hear reishi tincture is a really good energy booster almost like a pre workout
