Applicable to many areas of life!

Intermittent fasting is a way of eating to ensure that you get the most out of every meal you eat. The core tenants of intermittent fasting mean that you don’t need to change what you are eating. Instead, you must change when you are eating it.

Five-by-Five Workout Program

Alot of the information explained in this five book bundle audiobook, i have previously been taught, but have used it as a revision tool to revisit and relearn topics. Honestly i felt the narration (tone of the voice) sent me back to highschool, and forcing myself to pay attention to the important information being told, taking notes helped to understand better. The course is a great introduction to the topic of "Sports Psychology for Athletes" and now looking further into different aspects to develop my understanding

It’s right on.

I've taken quit few of Epic's courses so called Keto Diet for Beginners: Burn Fat with the Ketogenic Diet, as well as Keto Fitness: The Ketogenic Diet, Intermittent Fasting, and Strength Training, Mental Toughness, Peak Performance etc and have enjoyed most of them. He has an excellent way of conveying the information without it being drawn out. He also make counts on customers opinions with technical issues.

Helped me perform at my highest level ever

One way to overcome this is to set your alarm a little earlier in the morning and make the conscious choice that no matter how you are feeling, you will get up, get your exercise in, and eat a proper breakfast. After a while, you will not have to even think about it and you will notice that if you skip a day, you will not feel as great as the days when you are working out. Barbell training is best for strength training but requires traveling to the gym three times a week. If you foresee this being an issue, choose something else more realistic for you. Remember that no matter which type you choose to be your main, a wellbalanced, functional body is made by blending all three types of training.

It is through and to the point.

The hypnosis tracks are almost similar. The content of the course isn't that great. Not recommended if you are trying to learn things as a beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

Good introductory capsule...

congratulations!! although I am new to the idea of meditation...I can clearly see the benefits and merit for its use. The manual, as with all your courses is a comprehensive and indispensable reference to dip into from time to time.

Good read, kept my interest.

Making sure you eat healthily can be difficult if you are the type of person who has never watched what they ate but it will play a crucial role during your strength training regimen. It affects everything in your day to day quality of life, from energy, to having healthy skin, to also maintaining a healthy digestive tract. It is recommended to eat every 3 hours to keep your metabolism up and to also ensure you are having an adequate intake of calories. It is especially important to have enough calories throughout the day since you will be burning a lot during your workouts. The goal is to gain muscle, not just to lose weight. That will come with the workouts as you replace unwanted fat with muscle. You will also feel less hungry throughout the day. By replacing larger meals with smaller ones more periodically throughout the day, your stomach will shrink in size. You will also have fewer cravings because your body will not become so hungry that you feel the need to stop at the closest vending machine to load up on junk food. If you eat on a routine basis your body will become used to eating at those times. So say you generally wake up at 6 am, you would then make a routine to eat at 8 am, 12 pm, 5 pm and maybe again at 8 pm. The first step to eating healthy is to begin with eating a nice healthy breakfast. When you do so, you will gain energy for the first hour and you will be less hungry throughout the day.

Calming the mind, fortifying a confident mindset

One of the most important things to remember is that you need to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Not allowing yourself to stay inside of your comfort zone is going to make it to where you are able to build your mental toughness easier. Mental toughness is not going to come to you overnight nor is it going to inspire you one day and be gone the next. It is something that you are going to have to work at and build every day.

Sustainable fitness

Fasting is not a trend and has been a part of some religious beliefs including Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity. Decades before this generation, the process may have been because of the unavailability of food resources. Just remember, it is not a starvation diet since starvation is considered an involuntary absence of food.

Something to hang your hat on

The next step is to start implementing what we have gone over into your daily routine. Make sure you are getting an adequate amount of rest as it is not only beneficial to your body normally, it also affects your strength training regimen. You now know the basics of strength training and how to get started if you have never done anything like it before. This will then lead you into the 5x5 workout and some of the best workouts for your legs, chest, and back. Pick the ones that are right for you. Every aspect has been covered for each workout to ensure you maximize your muscle mass and have fewer chances of injury. I have told you how to not only perform each workout, but also ensure you know the proper form for each.

Learn new skills in a short time

Epic's courses really do ooze both knowledge and enthusiasm. To anyone wanting to change careers like me they are an affordable and efficient way to learn new skills. I would never have been able to retrain as a counsellor if it wasn't for these courses. On top of which there are the training manuals - the meat to cover the bones of the lectures - which to be honest are worth the money on their own.

Psychology of success

Rather than allowing the difficult situation that you did not plan for to overtake you and make it to where you are unable to think of anything other than the fact that you did not get the outcome that you wanted, then you are going to be harming yourself. Therefore, when you get an outcome that you did not want or expect, you should instantly override the tendency to focus on what is going wrong and shift your focus to trying to find a solution to solve your problem. Keep in mind that mental toughness is about overcoming difficult situations that you are placed in whether by accident or because it is what life throws at you. It is human nature to panic and focus on everything bad that is happening. However, with mental toughness, you are going to be able to push past that panic and begin to look for a solution to fix the issue.

Helps to bring in my other knowledge

This audiobook is very enjoyable and enables me to bring in my other knowledge around coaching ,mental health and nutrition as sport can be a cure , exacerbate or cause. This course looks at team work , cohesion an individual athletes needs. We are our own psychologist but this has enabled me to re think my coaching techniques and how I can develop myself and others .

Entertaining, Science-Based, Inspiring.

If we lived in a perfect world, we could lose weight and fat instantaneously. Unfortunately this isn’t how our body works. Everything from the neurologic system to hormones can signal any change to your exercise routine and diet. If you try to make a drastic change, like reducing calorie intake from 2,800 to 1,400 each day or take on an hour's worth of boot camp class at your first day back in the gym, the way your body chooses to adapt will do you more harm than good. Your body will think that the food supply is short, you are beginning to starve, and it will start to save calories, and it will begin to burn protein to produce energy. This shuts down the way the body burns fat and causes the downward spiral that will end up causing metabolic damage. When you reduce calories, you are going to have to continue reducing calories. It’s important that you stay away from this. When you choose to try to reduce your intake of calories or your resting metabolic rate to lose weight fast, this will only cause rebound weight gain and not lasting weight loss. Around two-thirds of people who lose weight this way will end up gaining all the weight they lost back and then some extra within a four or five year period.

Exceptional Guidance To Create A Plan

For the plan to be effective, you need to consume less food during the daytime hours. Eat small servings of veggies, fruits, and a protein such as a yogurt, whey protein, or kefir. Sidestep consumption of meats, grains, refined foods (pasta, corn tortillas, etc.) which lack the nutrient and are usually processed foods. Also, avoid sugary beverages and treats. Every few hours, you should eat a small serving of protein or fruit. Eat green veggies such as celery, leafy greens, cucumbers, and peppers which are not restricted to your intake amounts. You can eat as much food as you wish but keep the correct food combinations. Enlist as many different aromas, colors, and textures to create new taste sensations for your evening meal. Eliminate or avoid using white vinegar. When you feel full or have satisfied your hunger or if you become more thirsty than hungry; it is time to stop eating. The warrior diet is one of the most popular plans because it allows a sensible number of snacks to the daily routine which makes it more appealing to beginners on the fasting path. The amount of energy will naturally get your body in the habit of burning fat for fuel.
