It is true that you can’t increase the time and effort required to create your greatest physique ever, however you can maximize your efforts and go above and beyond traditional training programs to achieve a lean, strong and greatly developed physique, in comparison to the average person. In this article, we will discuss advanced supplement protocols and advanced training techniques that work in synergy so you can improve your overall workout productivity and move toward your best body achievement.
The following are the latest biohacking techniques that will allow you to achieve fitness, fat loss, and clean gains in minimum time using new discoveries about human biology, physiology and access to modern technology.
Glucagon-Like Peptide 1
Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. GLP1 agonists have been demonstrated to recruit muscle microvasculature, increase muscle delivery of insulin, and enhance the muscles use of glucose. What this means for the fitness individual is that it increases both Insulin production and sensitivity which results in stronger anabolic action of the compound and better use of glucose for muscle tissue growth. If you are looking to increase insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate utilization by muscle, a GLP-1 agonist is a peptide which has to be administered subcutaneously (under the skin). Its ability to slow down gastric emptying makes you actually want to eat less, which will be ideal for a cutting cycle or a weight and fat loss program.
Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood Flow Restriction Training. Also known as occlusion training, is the action of simply applying an elastic band or rubber tubing around the muscle you want to target which acts like a tourniquet. Then proceed with your training. Theoretically, when you cut a small amount of blood flow to the tissue, more lactic acid accumulates faster because it doesn’t drain due to the restriction. This triggers your Growth Hormone secretion effecting more muscle building action.
A meta-analysis confirms that exercise and walking with vascular occlusion played a key role in improving strength muscle hypertrophy which is in the ball park equivalent to training high-intensity resistance training. This is compatible with those having joint pain, older fitness people and/or athletes who are recuperating from injury and just getting back into the gym.
Oxygen Restricted Training
Oxygen Restricted Training. Advance your training by biohacking your breathing. This is done by restricting your access to oxygen thereby compelling your inspiratory and expiratory muscles to work harder to take oxygen in and push carbon dioxide out.
This creates a stronger diaphragm, tougher respiratory muscles, and a higher tolerance for carbon dioxide. The “intermittent hypoxic training mask” gives you the benefits of both resisted breathing and hypoxic training—yep, like working out in an environment with reduced oxygen, like a location at high-altitude. It’s like running a marathon at Mt. Kilimanjaro. When you exercise wearing oxygen restricting mask, this can push you to a whopping 95% of lactate threshold workload. And this is a sure-fire way to improve your aerobic capacity and endurance performance once you return to normal oxygen-level environments.
YK-11 Alpha Helix. It is one of the most innovative and exciting Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators in the market right now. This unique compound stimulates Follistatin and Myogenin production- molecules that are significantly responsible for skeletal muscle development and repair.
It also inhibits Myostatin, which is a negative regulator of muscle growth and is significantly implicated in muscle-wasting disorders. What this means is that Myostatin mainly inhibits and limits muscle growth. Thanks to YK11 Alpha Helix, it blocks the action of Myostatin stopping its catabolic effects while up-regulating follistatin and myogenin activities to allow muscle tissues to grow beyond their limitations.
Like any other SARMs, YK-11 Alpha Helix can be as powerful as testosterone in terms of muscle tissue strengthening and volumisation, but without any heavy side effects as with testosterone.
The above tools will help you achieve faster physique targets as you enhance your training protocol for superior benefits. Don’t ever think these tactics are just for professional bodybuilders and athletes, these methods are simple enough and can be adopted by anyone to working to achieve their best physique yet.
