Customer Reviews
The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 directly addresses the most pervasive problem faced by aging humans: the loss of physical strength and all its associated problems - the loss of muscle mass, bone mineral loss and osteoporosis, hip fractures (a terminal event for many older people), loss of balance and coordination, diabetes, heart disease related to a sedentary lifestyle, and the loss of independence. <br /><br />The worst advice an older person ever gets is, Take it easy. Easy makes you soft, and soft makes you dead. The Barbell Prescription maps an escape from the usual fate of older adults: a logical, programmed approach to the hard work necessary to win at the extreme sport of Aging Well. Unlike all other books on the subject of exercise for seniors, The Barbell Prescription challenges the motivated Athlete of Aging with a no-nonsense training approach to strength and health - and demonstrates that everybody can become significantly stronger using the most effective tools ever developed for the job.

Primal Endurance: Escape chronic cardio and carbohydrate dependen...

<p><em>Primal Endurance</em> shakes up the status quo and challenges the overly stressful, ineffective conventional approach to endurance training.  While marathons and triathlons are wildly popular and bring much gratification and camaraderie to the participants, the majority of athletes are too slow, continually tired, and carry too much body fat respective to the time they devote to training. The prevailing “chronic cardio” approach promotes carbohydrate dependency, overly stressful lifestyle patterns, and ultimately burnout.<br /><br /> Mark Sisson, author of the 2009 bestseller, <em>The Primal Blueprint</em>, and de-facto leader of the primal/paleo lifestyle movement, expertly applies primal lifestyle principles to the unique challenge of endurance training and racing. Unlike the many instant and self-anointed experts who have descended upon the endurance scene in recent years, Sisson and his co-author/business partner Brad Kearns boast a rich history in endurance sports. Sisson has a 2:18 marathon and 4th place Hawaii Ironman finish to his credit, has spearheaded triathlon’s global anti-doping program for the International Triathlon Union, and has coached/advised leading professional athletes, including Olympic triathlon gold and silver medalist Simon Whitfield and Tour de France cyclist Dave Zabriskie. Under Sisson’s guidance, Kearns won multiple national championships in duathlon and triathlon, and rose to a #3 world triathlon ranking in 1991.<br /><br /><em>Primal Endurance</em> applies an all-encompassing approach to endurance training that includes primal-aligned eating to escape carbohydrate dependency and enhance fat metabolism, building an aerobic base with comfortably paced workouts, strategically introducing high intensity strength and sprint workouts, emphasizing rest, recovery, and an annual periodization, and finally cultivating an intuitive approach to training instead of the usual robotic approach of fixed weekly workout schedules. When you “go Primal” as an endurance athlete, you can expect to enjoy these and other benefits in short order:</p><br /><ul><br /><li>Easily reduce excess body fat and keep it off permanently, even during periods of reduced training</li><br /><li>Perform better by reprogramming your genes to burn fat and spare glycogen during sustained endurance efforts</li><br /><li>Avoid overtraining, burnout, illness, and injury by improving your balance of stress and rest, both in training and everyday life</li><br /><li>Spend fewer total hours training and get more return on investment with periodized and purposeful workout patterns</li><br /><li>Have more fun, be more spontaneous, and break free from the pull of the obsessive/compulsive mindset that is common among highly motivated, goal-oriented endurance athletes</li><br /><li>Have more energy and better focus during daily life instead of suffering from the “active couch potato syndrome,” with cumulative fatigue from incessant heavy training makes you lazy and sluggish</li><br /></ul><br /><p><em>Primal Endurance</em> is about slowing down, balancing out, chilling out, and having more fun with your endurance pursuits. It’s about building your health through sensible training patterns, instead of destroying your health through chronic training patterns. While it might be hard to believe at first glance, you can actually get faster by backing off from the overly aggressive and overly regimented “Type-A” training approach that prevails in today’s endurance community. <em>Primal Endurance</em> will show you how, every step of the way.</p>

"Just think,” Dr. Biasiotto was told, “after you make this lift, you will have more credibility than any sports psychologist in the world.”<br /><br />And make the lift, he did. Dr. Judd Biasiotto had already shocked the world with his mind-over-muscle abilities, but for a man to break the 600lb squat barrier at a bodyweight of just 131lbs—and at the age of 44 and after spine surgery!—it was an other-worldly display of human mental and physical capacity, that no one believed possible. His doctors, in fact, were not sure he would even be able to walk again, let alone lift any kind of weight—let alone record-breaking weight.<br /><br />Be amazed and inspired as Dr. Judd explains his use of multiple psychological methods in order to not only be competitive, but to become a record-shattering world champion and pound-for-pound, one of the strongest lifters of all time. <br /><br />For the highly-ambitious—this book will resonate strongly with you. It will encourage you to keep going, to seek out more knowledge, to investigate options, to experiment, to tune-out the naysayers, to reach beyond, and to never give up until your greatest aspirations are fulfilled.<br /><br />If you do not already possess this all-consuming drive to excel (and you know it if you have it)—you will be inspired! You will be challenged to do and be more. To finally get serious and push past your limits, and discover much more that you are capable of. <br /><br />Dr. Biasiotto is a man you want at every dinner party. A multi-faceted character, Judd has deep insights into the human condition and has been enormously influential throughout the sports world by learning how to develop and control his mental and physical capacities. These skills are his secret to achieving the “impossible”, and with no small degree of effort, they will work for you, too.<br /><br />Impressive, fascinating, inspiring, and thoroughly entertaining. We are honored to present to you the remarkable story of a most remarkable individual, Dr. Judd Biasiotto.
