Doing so unleashes innatemechanisms that literally transform pain to power, weakness tostrength, and sickness to health.Fitness expert Ori Hofmekler describes the main causes ofmuscle degradation and aging and offers specific exercise andnutrition practices for counteracting them. He argues that the human body is programmed for hardship rather than leisure and emphasizes the primary roles of hunger and hardship in triggering the mechanisms that make our bodies thrive. Hofmekler also details how to combine food; the right meal timing and meal size; why we need to separate AM foods and PM foods; the ideal fuel to prevent ""hitting the wall""; how long and how often to train; and whether we can develop a super muscle fiber hybrid that can outperform any other fiber type.Unlock
