Discipline is a Beautiful Thing

Many people have a go at mixed martial arts, the military, boxing… and things like that.

I take the opposite view.

Safety in mma and boxing is proven to be better than the nfl and rugby, and similar to hockey.

True, if a trained fighter beats the hell out of a civilian for looking at him sideways… or a president sends an army to level a population for oil or money… it is despicable, deplorable.

But that’s a human and society problem, not a martial arts or military one.  They are about being the best you can be – a path to discipline, confidence, and purpose.  Great commodities.

For every thug that uses his skills to assault an innocent, there are thousands that were taken away from violence, gangs and drugs – and put in a positive direction.

The military and sports are also on the cutting edge in terms of learning and performance.  These discoveries can then be brought to the wider public – for the betterment of mankind.

One of those areas is nutrition;  an important key to mastering oneself.

Enter George Lockhart.

George was the nutrition specialist in the US marine core.

When operatives needed to fuel properly for missions, when they needed to cut weight or gain weight or increase performance… they would knock on George’s door.

It wasn’t long before word was spreading into the sporting arena.

MMA fighter and former marine Brian ‘All American’ Stann came to George Lockhart and asked him if he’d help him cut weight for his next fight.

They worked together, and Brian never found it easier to make weight or perform better.  Then Jon Jones came to the party.  Many more followed.  The latest ones being Holly Holm and Conor McGregor, who describe GL as a genius.

That he is.  He’s not just the best in the MMA business, he’s the best in the business.

I’ve never come across anyone who lays it out so well and so exactly.

He talks about three factors:  Fueling the body with exactly what it needs when it needs it, staying ahead of hunger… and controlling hormones.

That way you’re not fighting your body.

It doesn’t react with hunger hormones or fat retaining hormones (in reaction to starvation and other problems).

The result is being able to eat good portions, at regular intervals… even when losing weight.

There is no ambiguity.  You eat this at this time, in this amount…  then this will happen over the next week.  Boom.

‘Your day is different today…’  ‘Okay, here’s what you do’… down to the gram and the minute.

‘Your workout will be 45 minutes and will be at this intensity’…  ‘Okay, here’s exactly how you fuel it.’

Now there’s a guy that knows his stuff.  My kind of guy.

I’ve tried so many diets.  Many were good.  Some were revolutionary and worked like a charm… to a point.

But there was never a perfect solution.  It was never comprehensive or exact enough… probably because they hadn’t things wrapped down tight enough.

There were always some sort of concessions involved, usually to do with diminished purr-formance.

So I tried George’s plan.

He created this software called FitnessVT.  You log in your goal, your activity level for that day, your workouts etc.

And each morning you enter your weight before you eat.  It spits out exact instructions for the day, as per his algorithms.

It takes all sorts of things into account, even down to balancing sodium/potassium and calcium/magnesium ratios, which play a role in performance, health and even weight loss.

You can swap foods you don’t like or don’t have, for similar ones.

It’s just the thing I wanted for a long time.  In four weeks I’ve burned 8 pounds of fat, without losing any muscle… and it was pretty easy.  I hadn’t much to lose, so it is even more impressive.  I feel great and I know exactly what to do every step of the way, without having to work it out.

I can’t recommend this higher, and believe me I don’t recommend things lightly.

If you want to eat heartily, eat well and reach any weight, fat loss, muscle gain or performance goal… you’ve just found the solution.

Best,

P.S.  Other than looking and feeling better than you ever have, here’s what else you can look forward to: balanced hormones, increased anti-aging hormones, youthful skin, drastically reduced inflammation, increased energy, well being and better recovery.

It’s no good abfabulising and buttsculpting like a fitness model if you’re doing it via drugs or starvation. Eventually, it will all crumble. Even good diets, like intermittent fasting (when it is done correctly), ketogenic diets or carb backloading usually have some difficulties and/or concessions involved.

With this method, everything just gets better… it’s totally sustainable and it works for every person – 100% of the time.

P.S.S.  FitnessVT is so good that many elite fighters that work with George also comment that they just have to use the software and don’t even need his personal assistance.

It’s all they need.  It’s all you will ever need too.

A Closer Look At Legends… And How They Move

Who’s the better player between Ronaldo and Messi?  The eternal football question of the last decade.  I don’t have an answer. I’m not even going to try to provide one… because it’s really a pointless argument.

I think we should just enjoy two great players.

messironaldo

However, I will talk about what I think their strengths and weaknesses are, at least in terms of training or athleticism.

What can we learn from them?  A lot obviously.  We can learn from the greats, in any area.

I’ve talked before about how Ronaldo trains.  He is relentless and he does a lot of bodyweight exercises.  I believe this is the one of the main reasons he is such an athletic specimen.

He does 1500 sit ups per day.  Have you seen his core?  Everyone has, because he can’t wait to whip it out.  He looks like a cobra… his midsection is that solid.

He does other bodyweight moves at high reps per day as well.  His ability to sprint, jump, his two footedness, kicking power and heading ability is no doubt largely to do with this regime.  He can also twist on a dime and turn powerfully while the other players are still trying to get rooted to turn.

That’s the ridiculous core he has.  He improved his athleticism drastically from when he was a very slight kid.

If we are looking at where C. Ronaldo could maybe improve, we are probably talking about things Messi has: fluidity, poise, rhythm, balance and vision.

Messi lacks the same sort of power, ambidexterity, aerial power, sprinting off the ball and strength, as CR.

I’m not saying they are poor on these things, just that the other one is a genius in that regard.

When  I look at how CR trains, from my knowledge, if he stopped his add-ons of weight machine exercises and bicep curls and instead did more multi-dimensional animal movements and tai chi type exercises, he’d also make his spine, shoulders, hips and pelvis as incredible as his core and large muscle groups.

He’s also gain more poise and rhythm.  His calmness would also lead to Messi like vision.

Could you imagine how good he’d be then?  You’d probably be talking about the best ever.  On the other hand if Messi worked on his body to the amount Ronaldo does, with a few of the above subtractions and additions, you’d also be looking at the supernatural.

Best ever?

You could make an argument for any one of these players as the greatest and a few more. It’s a pointless debate…  all legends.

Is there anyone in sport doing the complete training I am talking about here?  Yes, there is:  Vasyl Lomachenko.

He has the poise, calmness, balance, footwork, coordination, ambidexterity, eye tracking, spinal strength, fluidity and effortless power… all in the one package.

He and his coach (his father) studied all this.  They continually evolved their method along these lines.  

As has MMA coach John Kavanagh.

That’s why Ireland (6.5 million people) came back with more amateur MMA medals from Vegas this year than any other nation in the world!

The Next Level Sports Program was being built concurrently to these wonderful athletes doing the same practises.  Near the end of my research I could see who’s training was on another level, and why.

Join us and zoom your performance up too.
