Front Cover
North Atlantic Books, Oct 4, 2011 - Health & Fitness - 200 pages
Provocatively written yet grounded in science, Unlock Your Muscle Gene is a revolutionary guide to physical transformation and the latest information on muscle conditioning, weight loss, and anti-aging strategies. According to Ori Hofmekler, we need to learn how to trigger the genes that retain and develop our muscles and extend our lives—we need to unleash this innate program that transforms pain to power and makes our bodies thrive.
Hofmekler exposes the false theories behind modern fitness and presents the actual biological principles upon which human diet and training should be based. He also details how to combine foods; 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 with unmatched strength and durability. Unlock Your Muscle Gene will inspire you on your path to a stronger, healthier, biologically younger body.
