Cyclic AMP

If someone told you that there is a miracle pill that forces the body to build muscle and burn fat, you might think it sounds too good to be true. What if you learned that your body already has this miracle pill built in Your body is preprogrammed with an inner mechanism that, once activated, can stimulate growth potential while simultaneously burning fat. When you fast, exercise, or undergo intense stress, you activate an inner cellular process that forces the synthesis of growth-stimulating...

High Energy Turnover Enhances Steroid Production

Steroid hormone production depends on the rate of energy production. High energy turnover is a metabolic state that involves high energy expenditure. High energy turnover forces the body to mobilize fat with its cholesterol carrier through the blood to the muscles and liver where it converts to energy in the mitochondria, thus depleting cellular cholesterol levels while enhancing steroid hormone production. Exercise methods that will help develop muscle fibers with high mitochondrial capacity...

Reach Maximum Anabolic Potential During Exercise

In theory, stress hormones inhibit muscle gain. However, in life, things appear quite different. In fact, stress and muscle gain go hand in hand, such as during exercise. The level of the stress hormone cortisol rises and falls in a wavelike manner during exercise. Taking advantage of the cortisol wave via special exercise intervals may help induce a peak anabolic potential. This is how it works Cortisol production is stimulated by the hypothalamic stress-related hormone adrenocorticoscopic...

The Biological Benefits of Stress and Hunger

There is a biological correlation between hunger, stress, and survival. It is very likely that hunger, danger, and physical stress trigger a survivallike mechanism. During survival mode, cellular factor cAMP is activated, thereby increasing energy production and inducing growth stimulation. These cAMP actions help improve reactions to stress as well as protect against injuries and overall metabolic decline. Biologically, cAMP helps support human survival during times of physical and nutritional...

The Biological Principles of Fat Loss

Fat loss is part of a biological process that forces the body to break storage fat and release fatty acid for energy. But as simple as it may sound, fat burning isn't just about burning fat tissue. In fact, the burning of fat, in particular stubborn fat, first requires the elimination of the metabolic problems that initially cause fat gain. If not resolved, certain metabolic impairments such as high toxicity or insulin resistance, may give fat tissue a reason to accumulate and to resist...

Length of Undereating continued

What is considered undereating for some people may be considered overeating for others. For undereating to have its maximum effect on your body, eat in a controlled way where you regulate the amount of food and the length of undereating period according to your specific needs. According to Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging in Baltimore, Maryland, studies on mice revealed that feeding cycles of fasting one...

Muscle Gain and Fat Loss at the Cellular Level

Lo gain muscle and lose fat effectively, you need to understand the basic principles of growth and fat burning. The most basic, self-contained unit of life in your body is the cell, where everything begins. Growth and fat burning depend on the body's ability to activate certain cellular factors that induce protein synthesis and fat breakdown. A nearly endless number of cellular and systemic events are required for the repair, synthesis, and buildup of tissue, besides turning adipose fat (i.e.,...

Info

The Single Biological Principle of Muscle Gain and Fat Loss M uscle gain and fat loss are compelling subjects that are pertinent to almost every aspect of life. In spite of overwhelming information about these subjects, including numerous scientific studies and anecdotal cases, the biological mechanisms that induce muscle gain and fat loss are quite simple. The purpose of this book is to shed new light on the distinct ways in which muscle and fat tissues operate and to assist people in making...

Negative Feedback Control

Like many other forces that are necessary to sustain life, anabolic and catabolic processes are naturally regulated in your body through a mechanism of negative feedback. Negative feedback is a most efficient biological process that maintains the balance between two opposing forces. Many, if not most, of the body's life functions, such as the regulation of blood sugar, the stabilization of blood pressure, the assimilation of nutrients, and the activation of hormone synthesis are based on...

Insulins Essential Role in Muscle Gain and Fat Loss

Insulin is probably the most misunderstood hormone in the body. Insulin's actions are often claimed to be the main culprit for the current epidemic of weight gain. But what many people fail to realize is that, despite its reputation as a fat loss inhibitor, insulin's biological functions are critically important for muscle gain as well as for fat loss. Nevertheless, many people still choose to follow low-carb diets, hoping to minimize insulin activity by chronically restricting carb consumption...

Kettlebell Soviet

Book By Pavel Tsatsouline Paperback 170 pages With Pavel Tsatsouline Running Time 32 minutes Video V1(a 3995 DVD DV001 3995 Both the Soviet Special Forces and numerous world-champion Soviet Olympic athletes used the ancient Russian Kettlebells as their secret weapon for xtreme fitness. Thanks to the kettlebell's astonishing ability to turbocharge physical performance, these Soviet supermen creamed their opponents time-and-time again, with inhuman displays of raw power and explosive strength....

Anabolism and Catabolism

Your life, biologically speaking, is defined by your metabolism. The process of turning matter into energy and energy back into matter is what makes a living creature superior to any mechanical machine. Your body is programmed to recreate itself every minute of your life. Substances in the form of air, food, water, carbon dioxide, and waste are constantly moving in and out of your body. The process in which material is built is called anabolism, and the process in which material is broken down...

The Cocktail Hormone Impact

Steroids act together, somewhat like a well-mixed cocktail of hormones. Derived from the gonadals and the adrenal glands, they indirectly enhance or inhibit each other's actions. The adrenal cortex produces three classes of steroid hormones that play important roles in the anabolic process leading to muscle gain. Some of the adrenal hormones, such as cortisol and aldosterone, are generally considered to be the bad guys by bodybuilders and athletes. However, as you'll soon see, there are no good...
