Take Your Training to the Next Level with Ketosis

I personally feel like strength training and Keto are great partners in improving your body composition, weight, and overall health. Muscle is the primary storage and usage vehicle of glycogen so the more muscle you have the more readily you'll dispose of glycogen and keep your body in fat burning mode.

blog.bulletproof.com One of the most popular critiques of a ketogenic diet – a diet that’s high in fat and low in carbs – is that it isn’t good for athletes. Here's a rebuttal.

Very interesting

Exercise in old age prevents the immune system from declining.

Older endurance cyclists in their 50s to 70s maintained muscle mass, had healthy cholesterol levels, low body fat, and their immune systems looked 30 or more years younger.

The study suggests that lack of exercise, and not simply just aging may lead to immune function decline.

How you move defines how you live - Peter Attia

Life on the road doesn’t have to shorten your life, here’s some great info on training for health span

peterattiamd.com My clinical interest is longevity, which is a function of lifespan and healthspan; In math parlance, longevity = f (lifespan, healthspan). Lifespan is pretty easy to define. It’s the number of years you live. Healthspan is intuitively obvious, but a bit harder to define. For simplicity, let’s ag...

I mean, I guess that’s one way to do it... by “do it” I mean end up in the hospital or morgue.... lol, crazy people.

Incidentally, whatever you exercise you do you need to evaluate the risk/reward. If you are unfamiliar with a movement don’t do it! Or do something else that offers a similar result. Don’t be a hero or in this case, dumb...

How to Use Fasted Weight Training for Muscle Gains | Kinobody

But, But..... What about my GAINZ!!!!! (Fainting...) If it were true that you always lose muscles when you exercise in a fasted state then all our ancestors would have died. They somehow managed to stay healthy and lean without eating every two hours.... If you want to be a bodybuilder then maybe things are different but for us average joes looking to maximize and preserve muscle, fast on!

kinobody.com Learn how to use fasted weight training to pack on lean muscle easily. Also check out a fasted workout you can use to start building an amazing body!

[01/28/18]   Most people in fitness are trying to sell you something. Primarily, they want you to believe that you have to “buy” fitness. This is BS. You own your fitness now by the choices you make every day. There’s no thigh master or gym membership or personal trainer that can sell you your fitness. Most hotels i stay in have a set of stairs, I can walk/ run up and down them for free and don consistently this will help keep me fit. There is value to certain fitness purchases but understand you own your fitness now.

WHY I AM DOING THIS: I am a traveling sales manager. I take well over 100 flights a year and have done so for many years. About 9 months ago I sat across from my doctor while he told me all of the wonderful things I had to look forward to if I didn't lose some weight: heart attack, stroke, type two diabetes, GERD, pre-mature death. As the father of three kids. I didn't like that. But, my doc gave me a simple path to follow to health and 9 months later I've lost 93 lbs and am still going strong. What troubles me now is the lack of resources available to traveling professionals trying to eat healthy and exercise while managing a busy travel schedule and personal life. So this page is my attempt at hacking that challenge and putting you on the path to better health and fitness. I am not a doctor or dietitian and you should talk with them before trying anything but I will share what I've learned from my experience.
