The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of transiently elevated endogenous hormone concentrations during exercise on strength training adaptations. Ten subjects performed four unilateral strength training session per week on the elbow flexors for 11 weeks. During two of the weekly sessions, leg exercises were performed to acutely increase the systemic anabolic hormone concentration immediately before the exercises for one of the elbow flexors.On the two other weekly training sessions, the contralateral elbow flexors were trained without prior leg exercises. By randomizing one arm of the subjects to serve as a control and the other as experimental, both conditions have the same nutritional and genetic environment. Serum testosterone and growth hormone was significantly increased during said  training session, while no hormonal changes occurred in the previous session. Both sessions  increased 1RM in biceps curl, peak power in elbow flexors at 30 and 60% of 1RM, and muscle volume of the elbow flexors In conclusion, performing leg exercises prior to arm exercises, and thereby increasing the levels of serum testosterone and growth hormone, induced superior strength training adaptations compared to arm training without acute elevation of hormones.

The risk factors for adult chronic diseases, like hypertension and type two diabetes, are increasingly seen in younger ages, often a result of unhealthy eating habits and increased weight gain. Dietary habits established in childhood often carry into adulthood, so teaching children how to eat healthy at a young age will help them stay healthy throughout their life. The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you’ll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think! Spotters Rock Get Your Tough Spot On


Caveman Vs Constantly Varied Movement Nation

diet-caveman

Caveman training focus to fitness is very unique. While many training methods focus on strengthening specific muscle groups, caveman training views the body as single unit therefore, use compound movements that build functional strength that simulates everyday activities. Unlike  Crossfit programs, the caveman approach focuses on using odd objects in place of using traditional weights. They do this with the understanding that it takes years to master the Olympic lifts. This severe learning curve may inhibit progress as a person must now spend time training technique instead of improving strength and conditioning.  Caveman workout will consist of a circuit comprised of 15 or more exercises that will be done for time or total reps. There is no rest in between exercises making this an extremely intense workout. Also unlike crossfit workouts, there are 3 different levels that cater to the fitness abilities ranging from the seasoned veteran to the absolute beginner. As you can see, both training philosophies have helped millions of individuals across the globe, but the approach of the caveman training will bring you to your absolute genetic potential while providing proper programming for everyone. If it was good  enough for the caveman it is good enough for us.  Get your Tough Spot On.
