Overtraining is not well-understood, and we still do not have good metrics for identifying when it is happening. In addition, studies in humans are hard to perform for ethical reasons. 
Researchers have used rodent models to simulate a state of overtraining in which the animals perform excessive training volume without enough recovery between workouts, and with an aggressive amount of progressive overload. In such studies, muscle loss occurs, even when *unlimited* food, drink, and sleep are available. -------------------------------------- #sandcresearch #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #strength #sportsscience #sportscience #exercisescience #sciencetopractice #evidencebased #evidencebasedpractice #biomechanics #muscle #hypertrophy #overtraining #overtrainingsyndrome #atrophy #muscleloss #catabolism #anabolism #catabolic #anabolic

Holidays are here, and here's why you don't need to panic!
.
Take two weeks off the gym, and come back stronger...? 💪🏻 This sounds far-fetched, but it wasn't. In this study, subjects were forced to take a 2-week break from training following a training programme. Not only did the break not have any negative impacts - their body composition didn't change at all - but their leg press 1RM was greater at the end of the break than at the beginning. (This may not be the case for more complex movements, we know)
. 
Taking time off the gym can often be a daunting prospect... but a couple of weeks away isn't going to hurt in the grand scheme of things.

It seems these days that people are beginning to understand that what you consume matters.
-
🍔 Stay away from fast or fried foods.
🥤 Reduce intake of sugar-sweetened beverages.
🍎 Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
🐠 Add wild caught fish as a source of protein.
💦 Drink plenty of water.
-
But, did you know, that it also matters when you eat?? That's right, timing of food matters. 🕑.
-
Your body has 2️⃣ major states: catabolic and anabolic.
-
🔸Catabolism is the state where your body is breaking down muscle.  This state occurs when your body is not being fed or after an intense workout when your energy stores are depleted. 🔹Anabolism is the state where your body is building muscle.  This state occurs when your body is being fed consistent, quality foods!
-
Clearly, being in an anabolic state is key 🔑 ! Whether you want to lose some weight or gain muscle, anabolic is what you want to be.
-
So, how do you accomplish this?? 🧐.
Did you pick up on the key word in the definition of anabolism? *Consistent*. You must eat in a consistent fashion throughout the day: more specifically, every 2-3 hours.
-
What types of foods could these be?
Protein: Chicken, Turkey, Cottage Cheese, Almonds, Protein Shake, Fish, Greek Yogurt.
Carbohydrates: Sweet Potatoes, Oatmeal, Vegetables/Fruits, Rice, Granola.
-
Really, these lists could go on for much longer because there are SO many options. If you're looking to revamp your diet, though, shoot me a message! 📩 @chris_melvin_ and I are starting another 8 Week Challenge where we would LOVE to help you start eating for your goals.

You are either Anabolic or Catabolic - there isn’t any in-between !
#
To keep it fairly simple, if you're anabolic your maintaining / growing muscle, and if you’re catabolic then essentially your wasting away. For any avid trainer, even those looking to transform / change their body composition being anabolic should be in the forefront of your mind, protecting your muscle against catabolism. 
#
There are a number of variables to consider in our aim to remain anabolic, I’ve listed these to some of my online clients today in discussions with them, here are two for you to consider!
#
​​​​​​​Adequate Calorie Intake 
#
If you under eat your body is likely to become catabolic as it looks for additional fuel sources - this doesn’t mean you can eat all the crap you want to simply get calories in, good quality whole food choices, sufficient Protein, Fibre, Fat and Carbohydrates. 
#
#
Water - Hydration / Dehydration 
#
No matter how many times I talk about hydration its always one of the most under valued aspects of peoples lifestyles. Believe it or not being dehydrated can create an environment whereby your muscle tissue is under threat to catabolism, and it should also be noted nutrient transportation / uptake is suppressed to the muscle cell. STAY HYDRATED. #calories #hydrated #instagram #gymmotivation #fitnessmotivation #catabolic #anabolic #foods #lifestyle #gym #rest #recover #sleep #workout #smart #online #ianspo #gymlife #fitness #picoftheday #gymfitness #mondaymotivation

I could post the top single I did today, but thought I’d share the hardest part of my training right now...but also the most satisfying aspect 🙃
••
H Y P E R T R O P H Y
90kgs x 15 x 3
Lightweight work that is gonna build me some bigger meat sticks as I move to 63kgs
••
The cardio effect was real tho 🥵
Thanks to @xtinakatarina for counting bc I was out of it after rep 5 🥴😂

Have you struggled with sleep issues for a long time and taken natural & pharmaceutical aids to limited benefit ?⁣
⁣
“Protein overload” may be part of the issue. Lucas Aoun from @ergogenic_health and I have teamed up here to health-hack this common scenario ⁣
🔸Although a high protein to low carb ratio is useful in some conditions and for metabolic control, prolonged high protein consumption relative to carbohydrate, means our blood stream is constantly flooded with amino acids. ⁣For some, this can disrupt the hormonal cascade needed to trigger sleep onset and instead promote mental acceleration and racing thoughts. “Tired but wired” as they say.⁣
⁣
🔸Melatonin is the master sleep hormone and is dependant on a chain of events to take us off to sleep each night. This begins with the amino acid L-tryptophan , which is converted to 5HTP (serotonin) and then on to melatonin to facilitate our sleep. ⁣
⁣
🔸With too much competition from neighbouring amino acids from excess dietary protein (especially when consumed in the evening) l-tryptophan may not “latch” easily to kick off this process. We encounter this scenario often in clinic and it’s not uncommon in athletes and those aiming for super lean body compositions ⁣
⁣
🔸Are we suggesting protein is bad? Definitely not!⁣
What we usually recommend to avoid the above, is simply stacking your protein fuel into your day time eating window and reducing it at night in favour of healthy carbohydrates, fats and vegetables. ⁣
⁣
🔸Consuming the bulk of your protein during the day is also beneficial for better blood sugar stability and preventing energy crashes⁣
⁣
🧐Do you or someone you know suffer from poor sleep maintenance and/or racing thoughts? Trial this for 7-10 days and let us know what you notice 😴

The grip-width you use on barbell curls can make all the difference on your biceps growth. Using a standard, shoulder-width grip uses both the long (outer) head and short (inner) head of the biceps fairly evenly. The wider you go from there, the more short head emphasis and the narrower you go, the more long head emphasis.⁣
⁣
⁣
Be sure to include in addition to shoulder-width grip curls, some wider-than-shoulder-width-grip curls to place extra stress on the short head (building the bicep width)⁣
and close-grip curls to place extra stress on the long head (building bicep peak). This will help you bring up the size of each biceps head, which together will create larger biceps.⁣

‼️😤🏃🏻‍♂️I AM NOT A RUNNER🏃🏻‍♂️😤‼️
—————————————————
Early in my 10km training, but I can already feel the gains from the hypertrophy phase. My legs don’t get tired early anymore, I don’t feel the excess weight to carry, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE PUT ON MORE LEAN MUSCLE MASS.
—————————————————
The time isn’t my best, but it’s the best run I have had at 4:30 am 😂 (because it’s my first run at 4:30am).
—————————————————
DISCLAIMER: Running is catabolic (breaks down muscle) while in the hypertrophy phase you want to be anabolic (building up muscle). So run on non-lifting days and you’ll be TRAINING SMARTER, with more gains in the long run 👈🏻 punny. —————————————————

In biochemistry, a metabolic pathway is a linked series of chemical reactions occurring within a cell. The reactants, products, and intermediates of an enzymatic reaction are known as metabolites, which are modified by a sequence of chemical reactions catalyzed by enzymes. In most cases of a metabolic pathway, the product of one enzyme acts as the substrate for the next. However, side products are considered waste and removed from the cell. These enzymes often require dietary minerals, vitamins, and other cofactors to function.

I have to say this so my clients and everyone can understand. I'm all for hard cardio as you can see I smash it very hard, but please, please, please stop doing this SH*T  before your workout, otherwise you will not be able to top what you did last week on the weights and you will not increase your metabolism. Do this preferably on a separate day or at the very least after your lifting but never before. Also STOP overdoing cardio. Everyday in my gym I see mindless cardio zombies doing treadmill 1hr a day ,day after day  year after year not changing their body ever. It's because they have burned their muscle down to 0. If you're curious how much cardio is right for you then hit me up in the comments or DM me. Glad to help you.💪😎👍 #catabolic #anabolic #cardio #hardcardio #fittips #wisdomwednesday #hiit #fatburning #fatloss

🔹handnutrition.com 🔹If you are one of our regulars, then you know how good these bcaa's taste and work. 😋What separates this product is the EPR(endurance, pump, recovery) Matrix. The best way to use them is to estimate how long you will be training for that day. 🕐If you’re only going to do a 30 min workout, you can sip on them immediately. For a 1.5 hour workout, start sipping on them right at the 45 minute mark which is the critical point where cortisol(stress hormone) starts to release into the body. 🙅🏻‍♂️This breaks muscle down and promotes fat storing, making the environment catabolic. 👉🏽StaminAAs keeps you in the lean muscle building, fat burning zone longer so you’re not being counter productive in the gym. I promise the first time you use this product, your endurance will increase and you will keep your pump and strength a lot further into the workout. The flavors are incredible, no chemical aftertaste, and are something you would want to drink with your lunch or dinner. 🍓🍋🍈🍊#staminaas #bcaa #eprmatrix #catabolic #anabolic #buildmuscle #keepmuscle #hardgainer #losefat #intraworkout #midworkout #handnutrition

WANT BIGGER BICEPS?⁣
⁣
⁣
⁣
Of course you do!⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Instead of trying to grow the biceps directly, target the brachialis instead.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
The brachialis is an elbow flexor that lies underneath both the bicep heads and is often forgotten by many.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Working the brachialis will push the biceps up, creating the illusion of bigger biceps/arms.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
In order to target the brachialis, have your hands in a neutral position (hammer curl is a great exercise for the brachialis).⁣

Of course you do!⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Instead of trying to grow the biceps directly, target the brachialis instead.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
The brachialis is an elbow flexor that lies underneath both the bicep heads and is often forgotten by many.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Working the brachialis will push the biceps up, creating the illusion of bigger biceps/arms.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
In order to target the brachialis, have your hands in a neutral position (hammer curl is a great exercise for the brachialis).⁣

💥THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ANABOLIC WINDOW💥
Do you need to take a protein shake immediately after your workout 🤔🤔
-
The answer is NOoooo!!
-
According to many research, your daily total protein intake is FAR more important than the timing of protein intake. As long as you are hitting your daily protein target, (.7-1g per lb of body weight) you are all set!
-
Many research has shown that hitting a daily protein target yields the most benefits as compared to just plain protein timing around workouts.
-
NOW if you are looking to maximize muscle protein synthesis (MPS) spreading your protein intake throughout the day evenly MAY help maximize your growth. This makes sense from a common sense standpoint and the current research seems to corroborate this. BUT as long as you are getting you daily intake of protein, don't sweat the timing too much!

A healthy weight loss means getting rid of the excess fat, while maintaining as much muscle fat.

To achieve these results your need a perfect balance between high protein to maintain your muscle mass and help with recovery, controlled carbs to keep fuelling and perform with a great level of energy, and good fats to boost brain functions, joints recovery and provide quick fuel.

How to increase Anabolic hormone response and decrease Catabolic hormone response with exercise protocols!

How to increase Anabolic hormone response and decrease Catabolic hormone response with exercise protocols!

🅶🅴🆃 🆁&🆁
.
🆁🅾🆄🆃🅸🅽🅴 WILL GET YOU 🆁🅴🆂🆄🅻🆃🆂
.
Yes I know your tired of hearing me say this, well I get asked everyday what are you doing? I am doing the same thing 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗱𝗮𝘆!
.
I get up, have my 🅻🅴🆅🅴🅻-1 protein in my coffee, this helps get my body back into ᴀɴᴀʙᴏʟɪᴄ ꜱᴛᴀᴛᴇ (fat burning), and holds me off till I can eat my full breakfast. .
I go throughout my day, eating my meals and if I am running around I make sure I have some 🅻🅴🆅🅴🅻-1 with me to have, once again to hold me off till I can have actual whole food and not let my body go Into ᴄᴀᴛᴀʙᴏʟɪᴄ ꜱᴛᴀᴛᴇ, (fat storing state).
.
At night, as you see here I have my 1 scoop to hold me off till the morning and also if i need to hit my protein macros this totally helps.
.
Why 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹-𝟭? Well it's a low temperature processed sustained assimilated protein. Meaning it's not denatured and your body can break it down easier. I've never had ANY stomach issues with it. No bloating or gassy feeling. All their flavors are AMAZING! It may not state lactose free but even if you think you are you can totally have it! Protein is thermogenesis which means helps with fat burning. Protein in itself helps keep you feeling fuller hence why it's the most important macro. For me personally, 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹-𝟭 has been and is one of the highest quality proteins I have ever had and your body should only get the best. .
REMEBER, you get what you pay for....

If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I preach constantly about the effects of stress on our health, particularly when it comes to our adrenal glands, thyroid function...as well as gut and liver! When stress is present (this can mental, physical or dietary), our adrenal glands take the brunt of it all and respond in turn with the release of excess cortisol. Its important to know that cortisol inhibits the conversion of storage thyroid hormone T4 to active hormone T3 (the one I refer to as the "energizer bunny" of thyroid hormones; it's what gets the metabolism moving!). As I've discussed before, more individuals are being diagnosed with hypothyroidism than ever before and the common knee-jerk reaction from many practitioners (traditional and non-traditional alike) is to put patients on a substantial dose of thyroid hormone replacement in an effort to raise/balance the patients thyroid hormone numbers (particularly fT3 & fT4), promote weight loss, reduce fatigue, etc. But all too often, patients do not feel much better and in many cases feel much worse, as the underlying factor/root cause (stress) has not been addressed! If one takes thyroid hormone replacement (which would be a form of energy/stress to already stressed adrenal glands) without addressing underlying stressors, fuel will be added to the fire and the individual’s situation (health) will fail to improve (think worsenening adrenal fatigue issues coupled with thyroid issues). Stress accumulates in the body over time...so reduction and lifestyle changes is going to be key and must include positive changes in all areas mental, physical and dietary.  #adrenalfatigue #stresd #cortisol #catabolic #hypothyroidism #weightgain #weightloss #hashimotos #autoimmunedisease #stress #holistichealthcoach #healthcoach #healing #alternativehealing #naturalremedies #npc #npcbikini #fitness #health #bodybuidling #balance #hormones #circadianrhythm

The best times to take ANY #protein #drink or protein #supplements are as follows.

I’ve listed them in order of #importance, so based upon what you can afford, start at the top of the list and work down.

When should you take it?
1. The most important time is right after a #workout. Your #muscles are like a #sponge and need instant #nutrition for #muscle #recovery and #growth.

2. Right before bed. You’re about to sleep for 6 to 8 hours. That’s a long time without protein. Could you imagine going throughout your day (when #awake) not #eating 6to 8 hours.

3. Right upon waking. Same thing, you’ve just gone 6 to 8 hours without proper nutrition. Your #body needs protein quick.

4. Half hour before a workout. This sets up the “#anabolic window “ before your workout and provide your muscles with adequate nutrition so that the effects of weight training (#weight #training breaks down muscles called #catabolic) are not as severe.

In the post workout setting your muscles are screaming for nutrients...in specific 3 types of nutrients...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. The fastest digesting carbohydrate available.
2. The fastest digesting protein available.
3. Vitamins and minerals that were lost or used up during the workout.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you aren’t giving your body those 3 things in the post workout setting after every intense workout you have, you are limiting yourself severely.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That is why I use the postworkout that like clockwork after every training session so that I can give my body exactly what it needs to get back into a muscle building state post workout.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Between Ignition and phormula-1 I am getting all 3 of the nutrients I touched in earlier to keep my body in the best position to recover, which is equally as important as the training itself.

But first.. let me take a selfie!

Still hitting legs hard at 5 weeks out. Although being honest.. I took this during a back session.. go figure 😂. I am actually filled with major motivation to lift heavy recently! I am going to stick in lower rep ranges for most muscle groups until 2 weeks out now. Gotta keep those gains!! #muscleatrophy #legday #catabolic #anabolic #gymselfie #workoutselfie #liftheavyshit

What you see on the surface is just the fruiting body of the mushroom which is only about 20% of the organism. The rest is the mycelium which is the unseen part of the fungus. Mycelium runs deep and long and releases catabolic enzymes to decompose and digest whatever around it. #fungus #enzymes #catabolic #eatshit #shitsgood

The #anabolicwindow Does Have Some Merit To It. Once We Finish A Workout, Our Body Is In A #catabolic (Breakdown) state. For Those In Particular Looking To Make #gains The Focus Is To Be In A Net #Anabolic State. Eating Immediately After A Workout Also Feeds Your Muscles That You’ve Just Fatigued, Which Has Carryover In Recovery. Even If The Goal Is To Lose Weight, Eating After Workouts Will Help Ease Hunger. Just Remember That A Factor Weight Loss Is Calories In Vs Calories Out. Calories Out Meaning Your Overall Physical Activity Level (how much you walk, bike ride, exercise frequency, amount of sleep etc). #brosciencelife #broscience #nutrition #health #fitness #sports #athletes #chef #lifestyle #cooking #food #gym #athlete #gymbro #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning

When you’re about to go catabolic and you see a @1stphorm Level-1 Bar Cabinet 😎
.
All too many times I’m “on the run” or “on the go” and don’t space my meals out properly.
.
I’ll have a meeting come up or a commitment run over longer than expected and throw my eating for the day through the ringer 😫
.
When I’m not getting good quality and amazing of protein in every couple of hours, my body doesn’t have much to help repair my muscles and burn fat. Yep, (surprise!) protein does BOTH for you! 💪
.
Because there are times I won’t even be able to predict me being away from the kitchen/microwave, I take a trusty Level-1 Bar with me.
.
It has 20g of protein, is low temp baked, and THEY’RE EFFING DELICIOUS 🤤
.
They come is flavors like:
•Peanut Butter Lover (pictured) 🥜
•Salted Caramel (my favorite) 🥮
•Chocolate Mint Cookie 🍃
•Chocolate Crunch 🍫
.
You can have them by themselves to fill in the gaps throughout the day, OR you can even add it to a meal that is low in protein, like I did with my peanut butter waffles (in the last pic)
.
It’s the ultimate ‘level’ of convenience when it comes to sustaining an anabolic state.
.
Even when making a quick shake with Level-1 Protein Powder isn’t a viable option, this is my go-to.
.
If you would like to try some of these for yourself, shop through the link in my bio. You’ll even get free shipping!

Anabolic & catabolic, do you know the difference? 
To reach an anabolic state, help increase muscle mass,  you should focus on strength training. 
To reach a catabolic state, to burn fat and calories, you should focus on cardiovascular techniques. 
Together they shock your body to continue shedding fat and burning calories as well as prevent boredom.

🥺The other day I was faced with a horrible decision...
I had to chose.
Between the love of my life @katekatbar  and Blueberry Muffin Level-1 protein. .
Here, you can see that my new snuggle buddy is shiny, new, blue and also keeps me in an Anabolic state 🥰🥰🥰
.
Do you know the difference between being in an Anabolic state vs. Catabolic state?
.
Not long ago, I had no clue🤔🤔
.
Here is a quick break down:
.
Anabolic state is when your body is in a muscle building, fat burning state.
Catabolic is a state where it burns your muscle as fuel and stores fat.
.
Not that you know what the difference is...
Where would you rather be?

• GOT BACK? •
.
.
.
.
.
First off lets start off with a lot of these exercises are going to overlap since there's a few exercise that basically hit the whole entire back, one being the deadlift since it almost hits the entire body!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what I have here is the major muscle groups of your back and if you want a well developed back, you're going to have to hit all the angles (i.e. vertical, horizontal, etc...).
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let's go over some of the breakdown:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Latissimus Dorsi:
-Everyone knows these as the wings of our backs and probably the most famous of the back muscles.  These muscle will create the illusion of a V-taper and making the appearance of your waist smaller than it actuall is.  The muscle is located from under your armpit area and the back of the ribs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*Most commmon exercises*
-Lat Pulldown
-Pull-Ups
-Barbell Rows
-Dumbbell Single Arm Rows
-Deadlifts
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trapezius:
-The Traps, the most powerful and largest of the back muscle groups.  The trapezius is located from the collarbobe frontal view and reach all the way down to the lower back region.  Most pay attention to the upper portion of the traps but a well developer trapezius will be worked from the top, middle and lower fibers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*Most commmon exercises*
-Shrugs
-Deadlifts
-Farmers Walks
-Face Pulls
-Barbell Rows
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rhomboids:
-These guys are tiny and are located underneath the trapezius, they originally come from the vertebrae and attach to the scapulae.  Whenever you squeeze your shoulder blades together and retract these are the muscle you are using in order to perform this task.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*Most commmon exercises*
-T-Bar Rows
-Dumbbell Bent-Over Rows
-One-Arms Rows
-Pull-Ups/Chin-Ups
-Seated Rows

Anabolism centres around growth and building — the organization of molecules. In this process, small, simple molecules are built up into larger, more complex ones. An example of anabolism is gluconeogenesis. This is when the liver and kidneys produce glucose from noncarbohydrate sources.
Catabolism is what happens when you digest food and the molecules break down in the body for use as energy. Large, complex molecules in the body are broken down into smaller, simple ones. An example of catabolism is glycolysis. This process is almost the reverse of gluconeogenesis.
.
Your metabolism is at work even when you’re sleeping.
Your hormones play an important role in these processes. Different hormones in the body are associated with either anabolism and catabolism.
Anabolism involves the hormones:
-estrogen
-insulin
-growth hormone
-testosterone
Catabolism involves the hormones:
-adrenaline
-cortisol
-cytokines
-glucagon
The researchers concluded that the bodybuilders may need to employ other nutritional strategies to prevent a catabolic breakdown effect before competition.
Since anabolism and catabolism are parts of your metabolism, these processes affect your body weight. Remember: When you’re in an anabolic state, you’re building and maintaining your muscle.

Anabolism centres around growth and building — the organization of molecules. In this process, small, simple molecules are built up into larger, more complex ones. An example of anabolism is gluconeogenesis. This is when the liver and kidneys produce glucose from noncarbohydrate sources.
Catabolism is what happens when you digest food and the molecules break down in the body for use as energy. Large, complex molecules in the body are broken down into smaller, simple ones. An example of catabolism is glycolysis. This process is almost the reverse of gluconeogenesis.
.
Your metabolism is at work even when you’re sleeping.
Your hormones play an important role in these processes. Different hormones in the body are associated with either anabolism and catabolism.
Anabolism involves the hormones:
-estrogen
-insulin
-growth hormone
-testosterone
Catabolism involves the hormones:
-adrenaline
-cortisol
-cytokines
-glucagon
The researchers concluded that the bodybuilders may need to employ other nutritional strategies to prevent a catabolic breakdown effect before competition.
Since anabolism and catabolism are parts of your metabolism, these processes affect your body weight. Remember: When you’re in an anabolic state, you’re building and maintaining your muscle.

What most athletes don’t understand is the correlation between this extreme training and catabolic factors. When the body is under extraordinary stress the last priority is preserving your hard earned muscle. Adding BCAA’s to your WOD can stop catabolism in its tracks. BCAA’s, particularly Leucine can activate protein synthesis triggering the body to build more muscle or in this case hold onto it. These essential amino acids also are used to convert glycogen and fat into energy. These aminos have to be ingested to be present and the timing around your WOD is crucial to having them readily available in your bloodstream.  While you may not be able to completely stop muscle catabolism while training a penny saved is a penny earned.
-----
Speaking of glycogen being used as fuel you may have already heard of the advanced carbohydrate highly branched cyclic dextrin or cluster dextrin found in GLYCODRIVE®. Due to its high molecular weight and narrow weight distribution Cluster dextrin swiftly exits the upper digestive tract where it can be absorbed and quickly elevate glycogen levels in the muscle cells. Keeping a steady internal supply of glycogen in the muscles during training increases endurance and can prevent the effects of stress on the body when taken during workouts.

Huh?... my head is chopped off.

This is me after gym. 23min in Ketosis.

Day 10 of 17. It's a cycle to adapt and couple intermittent fasting and powerlifting to improve health.

Day #9 on Keto:  Feeling good - more focused for sure.  Not quite able to exercise the way I used to, but that’s okay.  In an anabolic state, diet is used to supplement the workout, whereas in a catabolic state, exercise is used to supplement the diet.

Yesterday I fasted till 8:30pm, did freeweights for shoulders in the morning, hot yoga in the late afternoon.  I “fed” for 2 hours on sauerkraut, fried cheese, pork belly, guacamole, mixed greens, and my almond butter/coconut milk mouse (recipe coming soon) and red wine for dessert.

This morning I woke up, tested ketones, and voila!  Now these strips... not super accurate - in fact it’s probably that dark because I’m peeing out a lot of ketones instead of effectively using them (probably cause of that 3rd glass of wine). BUT!  It does confirm that my liver is for sure cranking up the ketone production. 
So what does this mean for me?  I’m off today.  Think I’m not going to eat till tomorrow morning, or a very small meal.  It all depends how I feel.  You have to always listen to your body.  Namaste.

- I Love this post,because like most things, fasting can be viewed as dangerous when taken out of context or abused. .
- While I think everyone is entitled to their opinions, it makes me cringe when I hear/read someone screaming out, "stop fasting, stop starving yourself." FASTING IS NOT STARVING YOURSELF.
.
- I think it is important to acknowledge that eating in general has very strong psychological, emotional, cultural, and behavioral components that influence it. .
- And while fasting and voluntary starvation both restrict food intake, I think the driving force behind each is vastly different. .
- You can starve yourself without fasting. When I was in college I used to restrict my food intake such that I would only allow myself a few bites to eat (if that) until after I had completed my second workout for the day. If I did not run my daily 8-10 miles I would only allow myself a few hundred calories for that day. Was I fasting?...No. Was I seriously restricting my calories...Yes. Looking back now, I can clearly see that I had disorderly eating and yes some might say at that time in my life I was indeed starving myself. I used food as a reward and I restricted food as a punishment.
.
-I BELIEVE THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE. While I think it is important to acknowledge that fasting can develop into disorderly eating depending on the emotional and psychological state of the individual. I can whole heartedly say that when I restrict food now, it is because of medical reasons (or to avoid further medical complications) as well as allowing my body the time needed to rejuvenate and heal itself. I do not fast after a "cheat meal," I don't fast if I skip a workout. Food is not used as a reward or a punishment. Food is used as a means to nourish my body so that it can thrive. Because when it comes down to it that is what our bodies are trying to do 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year- maintain balance so that we can live, so that we can thrive.

It’s not about just losing weight - that is not my goal with keto.  My goal is to use keto as a way of transitioning into longer periods of time when I don’t eat.  When you tell people that you are essentially starving yourself for health reasons, many have a strong, immediate reaction to that... “ that’s dangerous!”, they’ll say.  I used to feel the same way.

It wasn’t till about a year ago when I saw the documentary, “The Science of Fasting” that I began to understand my body a lot more, and really placated my fears of not eating.  It sent me into countless YouTube loops on the subject, and the more I learned, the more fasting made sense.  There is so much to discuss, but basically it made sense to me that from an evolutionary point of view we are wired to overeat with the intent of storing fat because back in paleo times, food wasn’t always available.  It was natural to go days without a meal.

In a lecture, a scientist had shared that she believes health is about maintaining a balance between anabolic states (taking in calories-growing new cells) and catabolic states (feeding on one’s own old cells). I wholeheartedly agree.

POINT TO PONDER -
Don’t overdo intensity techniques all the time... Drop sets , super sets, forced reps, rest-pause, pre-exhaust, negatives and giant sets are all great ways to shock your muscles into the growth zone. 
But if you do them all the time, they are going to be a lot less shocking . Using each method more sparingly will reap the rewards without burning out your hard earned muscle. And keep your enthusiasm level high.

Waarom eet je slecht als je gestressed bent?

Je doet het niet eens opzettelijk, maar als je cortisol (stress hormoon) hoog is, wil je lichaam geen glucose meer in de cellen opnemen om deze beschikbaar te houden voor vitale organen. Dan gaan functies als spijsvertering, maar ook anabole processen als spieropbouw, naar een lager pitje. 
Niet moeilijk voor te stellen waarschijnlijk dat je dan geen honger voelt of alleen een snelle hap kunt eten. Pas als je weer relaxed bent, je lichaam weer glucose opneemt en je spijsvertering weer actief is, ga je weer behoefte krijgen aan eten. 
Dus van mensen verlangen dat ze de beste voedselkeuzes maken in die situatie is haast een onmogelijke opgave. 
Daarom fixen we eerst stress en zorgen voor een betere balans van hormonen zoals cortisol en insuline.

Drinking water 💧 has been so hard for me lately and I’ve made it a goal of mine to drink my gallon of water again EVERYDAY!
_
Did you guys know that #aminocore comes in naturals? If you are cautious about the use of synthetic sweeteners, #aminocore naturals 🍃 is the one for you! It’s sweetened with #stevia! 🙌🏽
_
Are you wondering what #aminore is? Well it’s a high dosage of BCAA’s that prevent catabolic breakdown of the muscles and create pure protein synthesis. 💪🏽 It’s great during workouts or on days you can’t get all of your protein in! Not to mention, perfect on these 100* #california weather days! 🥵 The best part is, that it comes in 10, flavors so I know you’ll find one you like! 😎
If your in or around the #stockton area, drop into @maxmusclestockton and pick yours up today!

I still have the Flu. I’m so sorry I may not be able to post much or work on my fitness goals until this crud has run its course. I will be working on my body recomp as soon as this is over. For years I have shied away from eating carbs which has kept me from powerlifting as much as I should. I will be focusing on feeding my body an excess on lift days and eating lower carbs and calories on cardio days. The goal is to build muscle and lose fat almost simultaneously. Alternating anabolic and catabolic days for the next 21 days and then seeing what type of progress I have made. Doing my best doesn’t mean working myself into the ground, so I will gladly take this time to let my body heal and rest until I can jump all in. 💜 #fitgirl #fitmom #fitness #anabolic #catabolic #lifting #carbcycling #protein #workout #musclebuilding #kandiredfit
