We use the beep test in both our Fat Loss Fitness Boot Camps and with Private Clients. The beep test is a better measure of a persons anaerobic power (lactate threshold LT) as the increments are steep and can produce a very different result to other endurance tests.
When viewed along side data from [...]
You often hear Personal Trainers and Weight Training advocates claim that muscle weighs more than fat. Isn’t a pound a pound regardless of what it is? Does fat weigh more than muscle?
Here is the answer on the Potentialization site —> Does Muscle Weigh More [...]
Let me start this blog by introducing you to the AEq (the Armstrong Equation) which is at the core of my philosophy for real cellular anti aging … For those not familiar with the AEq it is an equation that has taken me 3 decades and many peer reviews to create. My hope is that [...]
To help you maximize your weight loss and fitness results, include “intervals” in your exercise routine. These are fat burning, brief periods of aerobic exercise slipped throughout your regular workout.
For example, if you were walking, you would do a one-minute interval of faster walking about every five minutes throughout your exercise session.
Using any of the Vo2 Tests from the Potentialization Metabolics System you can compare your current level of fitness with the following normative tables for Vo2 Max:
Maximal oxygen uptake norms for MEN (ml/kg/min)
18-25 26-35 36-45 46-55 56-65 65+ excellent > 60 > 56 > [...]
Simple – Exercise at and above your anaerobic threshold and here is an excerpt from Heart Rate Precision Exercise explaining why…
Normally, we breathe oxygen and transport it to the muscles to be used with free fatty acids and glucose to be converted to energy.
When we crank up the effort and exercise [...]
It is now well established that we should incorporate resistance training into our weekly exercise program. For those who are still simply walking or jogging for their exercise should take note of this post.
One of the most detailed studies to link exercise and reduced mortality risk was published in the July 12, 2008 BMJ. [...]
Growth Hormone (GH) is a great aid in Anti Aging as it It stimulates growth and cellular reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals.
Yet as we get older our natural production of GH decreases. This means we lose GH benefits such as:
decreased body fat increased muscle mass increased bone density increased energy [...]
