Hard work is not enough. Identify your inspiration to achieve the lifting goals of a lifetime.
In the first installment of this series, we learned about myelin, the neural insulator critical to the development of skill, and examined how to stimulate its growth with deep practice in your weightlifting training. Deep practice is practicing actively, mindfully, and with awareness of your errors.
This program is the first step in your ongoing fight to get strong and stay that way.
I don’t train to just “get fit.” I want to get strong, tough, and thicken-up my body. We are all in an ongoing to fight to get strong and stay that way for as long as we can. Many studies point to age thirty as when the average person reaches their peak bone density and muscle mass. For those who remain inactive or engage in only normal everyday activities, it all goes downhill from there.
By knowing what foods have either an acidic or alkaline effect, you can eat to perform at your best.
At its core, nutrition is so very basic: eat whole foods and avoid processed garbage. But when you look at how nutrition can improve performance, things get more complicated.
Human performance can be enhanced from a variety of ways. The most important piece is nutrition, not only because we eat multiple times per day, but also because as humans we want to live a long and healthy life. One of the best ways we can do this is by eating to become more alkaline.
