Fasted State Training Adaptations

    Just wrote a big Patreon post on energy pathways in a simple but not simpler way.

    I allude to how we might only account for 25% of our energy source through biochemical pathways.... difficult to write in laymans terms. Very few in the sporting world discuss this or are even aware of this area. Your tribe is small Jack, mine is smaller.


    Back to how this makes you a more connected athlete. So if you know that you have several other systems to activate, you will look into the ways in which to do so. In order for the adaptation to occur, the stimulus must resonate.

    If those stimuli can come from your nutrition, your training , your lifestyle and your environment, then you start realizing that you've been trapped in comfort for too long. The comfort is the bracketed research/guidelines/recommendations that you think is all you have to follow. But when you start learning about how the human body truly functions and what we still don't know, then you start to look outside the box.

    Mitochondriac's don’t concentrate on risks. They concentrate on results in an environment they are hacking. No risk is too great to prevent the necessary job from getting done for us. This group here used MCT oil to do it but I have not found out yet what they used: photosynthesis or a man made lab version of fat. https://www.channel4.com/news/british-rowers-break-atlantic-crossing-record

    One of the most challenging aspects has been adapting to a ketogenic diet plan for the row which means ditching carbohydrates and sugars and focusing on eating as much fat as we can. I’m a bit of a foodie so this has been a real struggle! Having the odd bag of pork scratchings at the pub as a naughty snack is all very well but when you are force feeding yourself 3 packets a day between meals or whole blocks of cheddar, it’s slightly less enjoyable! That said, when we arrive in Antigua and plough into burgers and chips, it will be worth it!

    Latest Biohack:

    Take Twitter, FB and Instagram off your smartphone

    if you have to use them, only use on pc or laptop

    Then unfollow people who post daily and influence your thoughts... even if they are good people. I recently unfollowed Jack on FB.... you get me Jack.

    Result = Happier mitochondria
