Adonis Index Coaching Call

It’s been approximately 4 weeks into the 6th Adonis Index transformation contest and it’s a perfect time to do an inventory of what has been working and what needs some work.

If weight loss is your issue you have to remind yourself that the process is not linear. Some weeks are going to go really smooth and others are going to be a lot bumpier. Muscle building is the same thing, some weeks just feel like a lot more progress is happening than others.

It's time to find your exercise groove just like Meatwads 'powerwalking'

This is sometimes tough to deal with as your  daily and weekly effort seems to feel linear and consistent even though your results are not. The key at this point is recognizing that the path has it’s ups and downs and to be consistent over the long term. Twelve weeks is going to go by in a flash. Finding a groove is important and sticking with the parts that are working is going to keep you moving forward.

Give yourself some room for change, but don’t try to change everything at once. Review your list of what is working and what needs changing, pick the one or two most important things that need to change and make a plan. Give it about 1-2 weeks to see if what you’re changing is working then move on. If something doesn’t work, discard it and try something else.

Remember that this process is not perfect or smooth, it’s a controlled stumble forward.

In todays coaching call we’ll cover what to do at the quarter contest point and how to set up your inventory list, and how to think your way through the next 4 weeks of the contest.



Diet and Fitness Research – Fundamental Errors and Misinterpretations

“New study says…” Whenever you see these words my first thought would be to ask, what does all of the other research say?

Some diet and fitness research claims simply don't fit with reality

In health and fitness one research paper will never be the final answer about weight loss, or muscle building, or why a particular food is ‘more healthy’ than another.

Each study is designed to answer one specific question in a specific group of people. In  most cases the exact thing being measured and the group of people it’s being measured in is likely not representative of most people.

The problem arises because of a fundamental gap between what type of research academics are doing, and the claims they are willing to make vs the claims the media and bloggers are willing to make on the same information.

Academic papers are written for the most part for other academics to read, they’re not typically written to generate claims for people to then act on for weight loss, or muscle gaining, or general health.

In today’s podcast we’re going to explain why this gap exists and how some of the most commonly held beliefs in the diet and fitness industry come from a misinterpretation of research by the media.

Juvenile vs Work Induced Muscle Growth: What is going on Inside the Muscle

Multiple factors influence muscle growth including your age, genetic predisposition, exercise, nutrition and drugs. This is a general list but each category has specific effects and interact with each other. Over the course of your life there are two major factors that override all others with respect to how much muscle you’ll ever build and those factors are:


Once you're past the age of 25 Juvenile growth is over.

1) Juvenile Muscle Growth

2) Work Induced Muscle Growth

The effects that nutrition and your specific workout pattern can have on your ability to grow muscle will change depending on the stage of muscle growth you are working within.

The changes that happen at the muscle are also different depending on your stage of life and training status/history.

In todays podcast we’ll look at what happens at the cellular level when muscles are growing in both the juvenile state and as a result of working out.

We’ll discuss something called “satellite cells” and how they might be the limiting factor to the amount of muscle you can ultimately grow and how various factors such as nutrition, age, working out, supplements and drugs can affect your satellite cells.

We’ll also discuss how your specific situation will change how effective supplements like creatine or protein can be and what the best strategies for using these might be.
