How Mikael Syding Retired At Age 42 As A Decamillionaire

Mikael Syding

Today, I have a finance celebrity on the Skinny-Fat Transformation Podcast: Mikael Syding.

Mikael retired at age 42 as a decamillionaire (USD) and was awarded Europe’s Best Hedge Fund Manager of the Decade after outperforming the financial market with 600% for a decade!

Currently, he’s the only person in the world who has had the honour to achieve this award, and he holds it proudly here in a picture with me:

Besides being one of the most successful people in finance, Mikael has a 310lbs. bench press and phenomenal health for someone in his forties.

This summer I visited Mikael in his apartment in Stockholm to interview him on a variety of topics including:

  • Fast cars: What’s it like to own a Lambourghini and is it worth it?
  • Career: Should you “whore out” and work a boring job to make a lot of money or work a job you love?
  • Women: Will money make you successful with women?
  • Health: How do you maintain your health while working countless 80 hour work weeks?
  • Bodybuilding: How to bench press 310lbs. in your forties.

I highly respect Mikael and he’s my biggest role-model, therefore I want to share the interview below..

Join hundreds of skinny-fat guys who used the SKINNY-FAT TRANSFORMATION Bodyweight Program to get into the best shape of their life:

Logan Rando, NY: “After 6 months of doing the beginner body weight routine I found myself 30 pounds lighter, with visible abs and a lean build. Friends who hadn’t seen me in months were astonished and inspired by my transformation. Simply put, the return on investment that Oskar’s plan yielded far exceeded that of any workout I had previously used.”

Steve Chavez, Peru: "It is the best workout I’ve had, I’ve never did a single pull up, managing to do pull up reps was a breakthrough for me. It was the best decision I made for my personal health. Without your coaching I wouldn’t been able to improve my physique.”

Harshit Godha, India: “I faced the same problems of low testosterone and skinny fat body type as you did, and after following your advice I made some real progress. I started with 0 wide grip pull ups, and progressed to 15. I am quite surprised with my back and shoulder growth.”

Gordon Martin, USA: "For the first time in 36 years, I am losing fat rather than gaining it! I already look better than most of my friends who are out of shape and overweight. I loved the customized bodyweight workouts. For those of us who travel a lot, there are no more problems with finding a gym."

    Mikael, have you read this article?

    • I have now. Of course it’s important to be open to dangers with certain foods or supplements. That’s why I have limited myself to fish oil, probiotics and vitamin-D. However, fish oil is as close to a natural non-processed food you can get

      Remember how fish oil was discovered: the Norwegian population was healthier during hard years when they lived on fish rather than beef. In addition, humans have lived off fish and grass fed wild animals for most of our existence.

      Anyway, I’m not a doctor or scientist. I just noticed that most studies only point to benefits, and I myself have only noted very strong health benefits.

      Examine is usually the place to go to for unbiased scientific reviews; Here is their take on fish oil supplements:

      It includes 724 references for fish oil studies etc. I trust Examine more.

  2. Awesome stuff guys! Mikael, would love to have you contribute more inside the Cognoscente! :)
    And please let me know if/when you’re in So Cal. Congrats on all your success! Well deserved! May you continue to vibrate at the highest level!

  3. Great podcast, you cover a lot of ground here.

    Maybe Mikael should also consider a modeling career.
