    Could you do an entry on the fitness/weight loss books you recommend we read?

    I loved this article so much. I want to get the 4 hour body book now.
    Thanks Rusty

    Although I don’t agree with the purported effectiveness of the Low Carb Diet, this tidbit gem of advice makes perfect sense to me. I will give it a try. Tim certainly is a resourceful and thorough guy.

    One problem with the 60 to 90 second workout before meals will arise in restaurants. I don’t see my self hitting the floor pounding out 50 pushups as my 12 oz. sirloin and baked potato hits the table. But then I don’t eat out for every meal so exceptions can be made. I wonder if Tim sticks to this regimen when dining out … probably not … but then he’s not afraid to pretty much try anything.

    Great Post Rusty! I love all the information you provide. The things that all the trainers should know. Thank you again

    I just discovered your blog through google, I like it a lot. I’ll be trying the air squats too. Thanks!

    that’s what I use on my Carb days since a goodly while, it’s basically the nutrient partitioning concept:

    Muscular contractions will facilitate increased nutrient transport into the muscle s-cells for up to 4-6 hours afterwards!

    The key is to just do a little pumping: nothing extreme as far as intensity or volume.
    You don’t want to build strength here, nor deplete carb stores, rather you want to fill them up to the max!

    This experiment would be easily conducted in studies all over the world. I’d be curious to read the sources. At first blush it sounds like pseudoscience.

    4-hour body is one of my favorite books.. 4-GLUT part is really the best, because I never heard before for such an easy technique :)

    For all the advice that is out there, this would have to be one of the easiest to impliment. I’m willing to spend a few extra minutes a day to try out the theory, what have I got to lose.

    Really like the video on squat technique. And this seems an interesting idea. Might give it a go once per day on non training days.

    Although I do take the point of others on here that it’s not likely to do much for anyone who is overweight. In fact any muscle building strategy will work much better once you get down to under 15% body fat.

    Hey Rusty,

    Great post, I did not read the Four Hour Body, but I usually follow Tim’s Blog. He is really smart and original, so I’m going to give it a try with 60 secs of burpees before eating.

    I love Tim’s book, The Four Hour Week and I have also read Tim’s book The Four Hour Body and although there are interesting titbits of information, to me it is all about trying to sell you the magic pill, to wow you with his unusual ways of doing stuff, but most of it is NOT practical at all. This information on which your article is based is pretty good really and I have to admit that just this may justify buying the book. However, lots of the research in the book is flawed, like that guy that gained a bunch of mass in a month or so. It sounds like a smart snake oil salesman to me.

    Thanks for your recommendation Rusty, I do this tweak when people don’t see me. It might feel awkward seeing a guy doing squats, push and pull exercises before eating. :)

    Great advices! It is very important to set right goals and constantly move forward to them. This requires lots of energy and it is perfectly provided by military grade nutritionals. Their pre-workouts are awesome. They give me quick boost of energy and enhance my physical capacities. I am gaining muscle and strength and achieve all goals I have set.
