Summary "Provocatively written yet grounded in science, Unlock Your Muscle Gene argues that human fitness is a well-defined system rooted in our biology and programmed in our genes. We all possess the genes that retain and develop muscle and extend our lives, but to turn them on we need to learn how to use the right nutritional and physical triggers. Doing so unleashes innate mechanisms that literally transform pain to power, weakness to strength, and sickness to health. Fitness expert Ori Hofmekler describes the main causes of muscle degradation and aging and offers specific exercise and nutrition practices for counteracting them. He argues that the human body is programmed for hardship rather than leisure and emphasizes the primary roles of hunger and hardship in triggering the mechanisms that make our bodies thrive. Hofmekler also details how to combine food; the right meal timing and meal size; why we need to separate AM foods and PM foods; the ideal fuel to prevent "hitting the wall"; how long and how often to train; and whether we can develop a super muscle fiber hybrid that can outperform any other fiber type. Unlock Your Muscle Gene is both practical and inspiring in pointing the way to a leaner, stronger, healthier body"-- Provided by publisher.
""Written in the author's trademark paradigm breaking style, Unlock Your Muscle Gene succinctly describes how we can activate the innate mechanisms that help us build muscle, become leaner, stronger, and healthier, and live longer"--Provided by publisher"-- Provided by publisher.
