Let me start this topic by introducing you to the X4 Plan which is at the core of my philosophy for real cellular anti aging … For those not familiar with the X4, it is a key part of the Armstrong Equation (AEq) an equation that has taken me 3 decades and many peer reviews to create.
My hope is that it helps you by giving you the tools for both anti aging and also a long healthy active life.
The X4 is a matrix consisting of 4 parts. Each division when combined will provide you with one of the most powerful anti aging plans on the planet that will literally transform your life.
The four parts to the Armstrong Equations X4 formula are (M) mitochondria fitness, (D) density development, (Ag) agility fitness and an (Af) anti inflammatory nutrigenics. So the formula looks like this: M + D + Ag + Af = ageless living
Each part is conducted simultaneously to compound the effect of anti aging and is covered in detail in both my fully updated 2K16 anti age cellular fitness system (special preview copies available February) and the complete anti age training system to be released later this year. Here is a brief introduction to the four divisions:
1. Mitochondria development I will be talking more about the mitochondria in upcoming articles but for now you should know that the mitochondria is the powerhouse within the cells of your body. It is responsible for the production of energy and it has been shown through scientific study mitochondria deterioration is a major cause of accelerated aging and severe lack of energy. You see as an Exercise Physiologist I have always understood the importance of increasing the size and number of mitochondria for energy. The health of our mitochondria is key to our production of energy. Aging will decrease the efficiency of the mitochondria. This decrease is said to be one of the main attributes of aging. The good news is we can increase both the size and the number of our mitochondria. This is done through a special type of cardiovascular exercise and nutrition which I cover in both my training systems.
2. Density training As we get older we lose density. Our bones become weaker and more brittle and osteoporosis sets in. Also our muscle wastes away (skeletal muscle atrophy) if it is not used effectively. This in turn decreases our metabolism and weight gain can easily set in. If we just increase our muscle tone by as little as 1lb of density we will burn around an extra 50 calories a day. Imagine what 10lbs of extra density will mean to your weight management program! Again, in both my programs I show you how to increase both bone and muscle density to give you greater strength, healthy bones and increase your metabolism. Add this to mitochondria development and you will literally become a strong, toned, fat burning machine!
3. Agility Fitness We have all seen older people lose their agility. They have trouble bending down, and running to catch that bus or train is out of the question altogether. We MUST work on our agility. This is a two fold plan. One is to increase our suppleness and the other is to increase what we call in Exercise Physiology our plyometric ability. The suppleness should be implemented immediately but it is important to do the right kind of training to prevent injury through poor practices and technique. The right kind of suppleness training will quickly give you the ability to do more with your body. Plyometric exercises should be introduced fully once you have removed any excess weight so this should be gradually introduced over the course of your weight loss and metabolic/muscular fitness ability.
4. Anti Inflammatory Nutrigenics Without good fuel going into your body you cannot expect to have plenty of fuel for your life. Inflammation is behind many diseases and we need to do all we can to avoid it. That is not to say you have to go on a strict diet you just have to know how to put your meals together to create an anti inflammatory system within your body. Your cells should be looked after and the right combination of foods and mitochondrial development will accelerate your anti aging whilst making your cells vibrant and healthy and free of disease.
What you can do NOW to Begin a full frontal attack to decrease your biological age.
To avoid aging and gradual deterioration you it is essential that you start from where you are NOW. Leaving this will only delay your progress and potential for living your ultimate life in an age free world.
