Episode 88: Christopher Walker: Host Brad Kearns sits down with Christopher Walker, a former collegiate triathlete who, after discovering his testosterone had dropped to a dangerously low 11 ng/dl due to overtraining and a pituitary tumor, developed a holistic program to boost it to an incredible 1129 ng/dl.
