Constructing your Physique: The five essentials

In News & Events by Ken2 Comments

There are of course many aspects to constructing your physique however, these are the five essentials we will discuss in a chronological sequence.

Genetics

You need to play the cards you’ve been dealt with, right?

Of course, you do. Or do you?

We are all human in appearance and our DNA is consistent within our species. But we all look so different.

Some cultures are more prominent in strength related sports. Strongmen and women are predominantly from the Scandinavian region and the Baltic States. Frozen skeletons from thousands of years ago have been discovered and examined. They have displayed larger than average bone structures indicating these people were just plain big. Their bloodlines have produced the strongmen and women we see today.   

Go to any bodybuilding show and look at the abdominal definition of each competitor. There are six packs, eight packs, four packs, thick, shallow, symmetrical, and off-set abs. They all serve the same purpose for us humans, but some are more appealing to the judges’ eye.

Disillusioned already? Not a chance! You can change your appearance to be far more appealing everyday and onstage. Keep reading.

Mindset

So, you have your cards in your hand. Which ones do you throw back and which ones do you keep? What card or cards are you hoping to receive to have the strongest and winning hand?

You throw some, or all back and you live in hope that you will be touched by an angel and receive the hand from heaven. But you may get the hand from hell.

But I digress….and therein is the lesson. Don’t be distracted by the myriad of tricksters, frauds and dare I say it, card sharks that will attempt to alter your mindset so they can cash in your chips!    

Set your goals, stay on your path, don’t stray from your end state. Block out the external noise, the negative people and leave the soul-destroying job you hate. Surround yourself with positive people, embrace a healthy lifestyle and be amazed how everything you touch from this point on will turn to gold.

I know this, as this is me.   

Nutrition

The fuel and the recovery! The most underrated weapon in your arsenal. Most of the medicines today are synthetic versions derived from nature.  For thousands of years cultures, such as the Chinese have known the secrets of traditional effective remedies and longevity.

Unfortunately, today we are overpowered with non-nutritious, affordable, timely and often harmful food options. Our body is extremely resilient and adaptive to what we put into it, up until a point.

It isn’t just what we eat it is how we are programmed to eat it. In Western society we are told to eat three meals per day, and bread at lunchtime is a tradition. Well guess what? That doesn’t work! Just look at most people in the Western World.  

If you want to construct an efficient machine you must supply it with the right fuel and recovery options using precise timing. I can best describe this as an individual science. There is only one person who knows your body. That person needs to self-educate or source a reputable educator to optimise the building of the ultimate physique.

Knowledge is indeed, power!

Training

You have been training for something since the moment you were born. To breath walk, talk, eat, drink, sleep, cry, laugh, etc. In fact, the list is endless.

We go through life becoming interested and maybe less interested or even disinterested in a range of topics, issues, and endeavours.

Some people are in constant training to be the world champion at having a heart attack. Whilst some others train as hard and as often as they can to contract lung cancer or liver failure. If you do something for long enough you will get good at it!  

Whatever you are training for do it with passion. If you do not absolutely love the training and the result, then you need to change your focus. You may find it all too hard or it may be a mockery and you need a higher challenge.

Consistency

As a species we learn through repetition. The constant imprinting of our brain, positive or negative will work.  

Identify your ideal physique and the steps it requires to attain your Michelangelo or Venus. Follow these steps every single minute of every single day. Live it, breathe it and it will happen.

I have supplied four crucial and malleable overarching key strategies in this document. These can be broken down into steps that can be followed. If you have the fifth; genetics you still need to apply the other four to construct your physique. If you don’t then hell, pretend you do!

Returning to the Gym – What are the Dangers?

In News & Events by KenLeave a Comment

As most of the world will be returning to the gym in the near future it is essential that you follow these key strategies to ensure health, progress and longevity.

Returning to the Gym

Start at the Start – what does this mean? Well, it doesn’t mean picking up 1kg dumbbells if you are used to pressing 50kg dumbbells. It must be remembered that your strength levels will be diminished after any prolonged layoff. If you attempt to lift what you did pre COVID-19 you WILL injure yourself. When returning to the gym start at 50% of the weight you previously used. Or for non-weighted training 50% of the reps or duration of time that you previously used.

Don’t Overstimulate – some pre-workouts can make you feel that you are
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (the huge dude from Game of Thrones). This sense of invincibility WILL injure you. Use the 50% rule on pre-workouts when returning to the gym.

Dress for the Conditions, Not for Tik Tok! – gyms are COLD. The temperatures are set LOW in gyms. This is so you don’t expire in the first 15 mins of your workout from heat exhaustion. However, this may also compromise your immune system which is a huge NO NO during the Corona Virus Pandemic. Upon returning to the gym, stay warm and only update your social media with pics & videos of good form and impressive weights!

Don’t Start a Riot – adhere to your gyms rules. If you break the newly enforced rules by your gym – they will be shut down again! Remember, your gym owner would love to have every member in its facility 24/7. So
returning to the gym in a responsible manner is essential for your gym to remain open.

Your Flexr6 Immunity Stack is Available Now at the Flexr6 Shop!

In News & Events by KenLeave a Comment

The Flexr6 Immunity Stack is a must for all athletes and anyone who needs to stay healthy in these trying times!

Flexr6 Director, Ken Ross has personally been using this Flexr6 Immunity Stack since 2013 and has never had to cancel on a client due to illness. In fact, Ken has not had a bed-ridden flu in all that time. This
Flexr6 Immunity Stack has allowed Ken to compete in 114 natural bodybuilding shows to date, with many more on the near horizon!

Flexr6 clients have also used theFlexr6 Immunity Stack to assist them in achieving their goals.

Flexr6 Immunity Stack – What is it?

GLUTAFLEX

After intense training, glutamine levels are heavily depleted. Glutaflex can enhance muscle repair and immune recovery through its action on transporting nitrogen to muscle cells.

Glutaflex can be used by the body as a primary energy source, which can assist in reducing muscle wastage. In addition, Glutaflex can also be used by the body as a primary source of energy for the immune system and directly for energy when glycogen levels are low, which strengthens immune system function and recovery. This is particularly important when dieting.

Glutaflex is 100% pure Glutamine with no fillers, and is manufactured here in Australia.

ZMA

Zinc is an essential micronutrient that is crucial to almost every aspect of your health.

Research shows that this mineral may enhance immune function, stabilize blood sugar levels, and help keep your skin, eyes, and heart healthy.

Magnesium can:

Increase the absorption of potassium, which is critical for proper muscle function. 

Decrease pain by blocking pain receptors in the brain and nervous system.

Dampen inflammation in the muscles and the entire body.  

Relaxes blood vessels and decreases blood pressure, which restores healthy circulation. 

Increases your serotonin, GABA and melatonin, which helps you relax and fall asleep. 

Each Capsule contains 500mg of Magnesium L Aspartate 30mg of Zinc Picolinate and 10mg of Vit B6.

Where Can I Get It?

From the Flexr6 Shop! Make sure you use the coupon code:
immune2020 for free shipping.
