Fitness Supplement Q & A

Q: I have a question for Bill — I used your EAS supplements and got great results when I was in my 20’s. Now I am 40 and need to lose about 35 lbs of bodyfat while I build my muscles back up. I wonder what supplements you are using these days. What can you tell me about your Right protein shakes, Strongevity Rx, and your GH10x supplements? Should I start with one of these or all of these? What do you suggest?

A: What I recommend is that people approach supplementation in this order: First, make sure that you’re getting  the full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals every day. Also, make sure that your body has an ample supply of the high quality protein it needs to recover from your workouts. I get a lot of my protein and vitamins from meal replacement nutrition shakes. 24 years ago I introduced the nutrition shake MET-Rx to the fitness world and a few years later developed the EAS Myoplex line of meal replacements. Literally millions of athletes and fitness buffs have used these products to fuel their muscle performance. One of the great things about high quality nutrition shakes is that they are so rich with nutrients while still being low in calories. This makes them an ideal solution for people who want to get fit and strong while also losing unhealthy bodyfat at the same time. NewRightBTF-2_large Myoplex was a great product in its time but today we know even more about protein science and how to filter out the highest quality, most pure protein powders and this is what I use in my new RIGHT nutrition shake. You will not find this in MET-Rx or Myoplex. Right Complete Protein Shakes are built on state of the art nutrition science — up to date for the year 2015. Some of my previous formulas at EAS have not increased in quality over the years and the formulas have changed possibly in the opposite direction.  I always recommend starting with RIGHT Complete Protein Shakes to make sure that you’ve got your essential nutrients covered.

STRONGEVITY RxThe next level of supplementation would be adding STRONGEVITY Rx to your workouts and healthy meal plan. This breakthrough formula includes the scientifically proven effective supplement micronized creatine monohydrate, ubiquinol, and ubiquinone forms for CoQ10 (which medical research has shown works synergistically and additively with creatine), and the biologically active form of Vitamin D3, called Cholecalciferol. These are three key nutrients that when taken together will increase muscle strength, mental energy, and improve recovery time. STRONGEVITY Rx is a supplement that not only helps you get better results faster from your workouts but it is also a longevity formula – studies show that these nutrients help improve both quality and quantity of life and so I especially recommend STRONGEVITY Rx to people over 40 who are working out and transforming their health.

GH10XLevel 3 supplementation is the next step up. This is only something for people who are already working out consistently, eating healthy, getting their protein and vitamins each day, and supplementing with the cellular energy nutrients in STRONGEVITY Rx. GH10x is that next tier product which helps our health and fitness through a different pathway. Gh10x can increase our body’s nitric oxide levels which increase blood flow to muscles and therefore help more nutrients and oxygen be delivered to hardworking cells. Gh10x also helps support the natural growth hormone response we get when we workout following a high intensity interval method. Natural Growth Hormone plays a key role in helping us lose fat and build muscle, and beyond age 40 our natural levels decline significantly. Anything we can do to boost them back up naturally can give us big benefits. Unlike synthetic growth hormone injections, natural GH boosters have no side effects and are much less expensive than the pharmaceutical products. Another benefit of GH10x is that is also contains key amino acids that help volumize muscle cells which helps to give the body that firm and toned look and feel.

In summary, first make sure you are working out hard and consistently. Next, eat healthy, balanced meals. Then, add the Right Complete protein nutrition shakes. After that, you can get better results faster from your workouts by adding in Strongevity Rx. Once you feel that you have all those basis covered, then consider GH10x to take it up a notch. ++ To learn more about Bill Phillips Fitness Supplements visit www.EatingRight.com

A New Look at Bill Phillips’ Lower Body Workout

Lifting free-weight dumbbells is an incredibly effective and efficient way to work the major muscles of your body. The lower body workout I teach at my Transformation Center is all done with dumbbells. The exercises which make up this routine blast the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. When we use the proper form it also strengthens the core, improves flexibility and builds stabilizer muscles which support the knees, ankles, and hips. This lower body workout includes three variations of squats — it is absolutely the best exercise for lower body work and it also is incredibly good for calorie burning and cardiovascular health improvements. This workout is the exact approach that I have followed to rebuild my leg muscles after a brutal injury I suffered a few years ago. This workout works and it’s simple (not easy) to do.

I used this Lower Body Workout to rebuild my leg muscles, at age 50, after an injury which ruptured the quadriceps tendons on both legs.

I used this Lower Body Workout to rebuild my leg muscles, at age 50, after an injury which ruptured the quadriceps tendons on both legs.

With this ‘5-25 Intense Interval Strength Training’ workout I can stick with the same weight for all 5 sets (as opposed to ‘pyramiding’ or increasing weight for each set as we did with Body-for-LIFE). The way 5-25 is designed we reach ‘progressive resistance overload’ (needed for positive muscle adaptations) through fatiguing the muscles more with each set. By your 5th set of 10 reps for each muscle group your muscles will be thoroughly cooked, and that is good!

Lower Body Workout

1. Dumbbell Squats — 10 Reps 2. Straight-Leg Deadlift — 10 Reps 3. Dumbbell Sumo Squats — 10 Reps 4. Standing Dumbbell Calf Raises — 10 Reps 5. Narrow Stance Dumbbell Front Squat — 10 Reps Complete all 5 exercises, 10 reps of each, with no rest between. After you’ve completed all 5 exercises, rest 2 minutes and then repeat the cycle. Aim for the completion of 5 times through the cycle in approximately 25 minutes. ++This workout can be done with a number of different exercise combinations. For example: 10 reps of barbell squats, followed by 10 reps on the leg extension machine, 10 reps of leg curls, 10 seated calf raises,  and 10 reps on the leg press machine. There are many different combinations we can put together to get an excellent high intensity strength training workout for the lower body. ++Never sacrifice good form to lift more weight. Doing the exercises with proper form and lifting the weights slowly and under control is even more important for those of us over 40. The great results from working out consistently come over time. Injuries are setbacks that throw us off track. Good form is one of the keys to keeping your exercise program going and producing great results. lbwo

Dumbbell SquatsphotocatSquatJan-7

Starting Position: Hold two dumbbells at your sides, with your palms facing in. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. The Exercise: While keeping your chin up, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Breathe out on exertion. Take your time — go lower and slower to fully work the leg muscles.

Straight-Leg Deadlift

DeadliftFinalFinal12-18 Starting Position: Stand up straight, with your feet shoulder width apart and a dumbbell in each hand, your palms facing towards the front of your legs. This is a terrific exercise for the hamstrings, and it helps strengthen the lower back. The Exercise: Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower the dumbbells in front of you, keeping the weights very close to your legs, until the weights almost tough the floor. Then, while concentrating on the muscles in the back of your legs, raise your upper body and the weights to the starting position. Roll your shoulders back, keep your chin up, take a deep breath and then repeat the exercise.

Dumbbell Sumo Squat

SumoFinal Starting Position: Hold a single dumbbell or ‘kettle bell’ in front of you. Your feet should be pointed out diagonally at about a 45 degree angle. Stand with your feet double shoulder width apart. The Exercise: While keeping your shoulders, back, and head upright, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout this exercise.

Standing Dumbbell Calf Raises

photocatFinalCalfRaise12-18 Starting Position: Start by holding a dumbbell in each hand, with your palms facing the sides of your hips. Stand with your feet half shoulder width apart. Keep your feet parallel with each other. The Exercise: Keeping your legs straight, raise up on the ball of your feet. When you get to the top hold it for a count of one, then slowly lower to the starting position.

Narrow Stance Dumbbell Front Squat

finalNarrowSquatJan-7 Starting Position: Hold two dumbbells at your sides, with your palms facing in. Stand with your feet half shoulder width apart. The narrow stance will make the quadriceps muscle groups work even harder than regular squats. The Exercise: While keeping your shoulders, back, and head upright, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout this exercise. Breathe out on exertion.

Air-Force Veteran, Craig Johnson, is 44 lbs Lighter, Stronger, and Pain Free

Craig Johnson

Craig Johnson, age 48, an Air-Force Veteran (he served 23 years) from Washington, attended Transformation Camp at our Center in Colorado and has gone on to lose 44 lbs of bodyfat while gaining strength, renewing his health, and energizing his life. He also achieved his goal we set at Camp and he got his enrollment fee of $1,495 paid back to him in full! Congratulations Craig! You are inspiring others with your leadership example and success! ~Bill Phillips
——————–

From Craig Johnson: “Friends and family have asked about the benefits of going to the Transformation Camp in person and my short answer is that it is LIFE CHANGING! Since the beginning of the year I have lost 44 lbs of bodyfat and 7 inches from my waist. My knee is finally pain free which has allowed me to pursue my favorite activity of golfing again and I just finished my first 21 mile bike event and still had energy to burn!

“You can’t help but to be inspired to immediate action after attending Bill Phillips’ honest holistic approach to health and fitness and his enthusiasm for transforming your life. Bill emphasized “progress not perfection” which later became my mantra and changed how I would approach a healthier lifestyle that was not a ‘diet.’ Bill also took the time to address the important facts against the many myths of health and fitness that gave me the straightforward information I needed. Then, once I was armed with the knowledge, tools, and support provided at camp I began my own journey towards health and progress that I enjoy today.

“So, if you are sitting on the couch like I was and reading about Bill’s Transformation Camps and wondering can this really be worth the investment and effort, let me assure you it IS worth it ten times over! Bill’s Transformation Camp will be the best gift you could ever give to yourself.”

And our highly successful students have ranged in age from 14 to 82! You will meet some great people at Camp and have a lot of fun. But Camp is mostly about me working with you in person to teach you exactly what you need to know about working out, eating right, and how to stay motivated to achieve your most important health goals. Hundreds of people have come to my camps over the last three years and gone on to get in the best shape of their lives… they’ve lost the fat they needed to lose (from 25 to 150 lbs) and they have built up their muscles and strength.

If you are tired of living life in a body that you don’t like; a body that isn’t working right or feeling good, let me help you make a change. You can succeed and I can help. You have to decide that NOW is your time to transform. Once you make that decision, you are on your way to a new body for life. If you don’t make a decision to change, you are just going to keep on going the way you are going… you have to add a new ingredient to the mix to turn things around for you.

We have a couple spots open for our November 7, 8, 9 camp and I will give one person today who signs up for that camp a $400 discount too. Our Camp in December is fully booked and there are no Camps scheduled for 2015 due to a new online book and video project which is being launched at the beginning of the year. If you are serious about losing weight and getting healthy and need some real motivation, please decide now to change your life for the better. If not NOW, when?

Build Muscle and Lose Fat Faster with this NEW Natural Growth Hormone (GH) Supplement!

GH10X

NEW GH10x: Scientific-Research Based Supplement and Workout for Building Muscle and Burning Fat

 +++ Now Available for the First Time — Get 1 Bottle FREE When You Order Today! Visit Our Online Store at: www.EatingRight.com

Produced by the pituitary gland, growth hormone supports health in a variety of ways and plays a key role in lipolysis (fat burning) and the anabolic process of muscle building. Unfortunately, research shows that as we age, growth hormone levels diminish. For those of us 40 and over, this can be one of the factors that lead to weight gain, reduced energy, and muscle loss.

Prescription growth hormone (GH) medicine has been touted by some anti-aging experts as a kind of fountain of youth. Celebrities and world champion athletes have paid over $20,000 per year to receive GH injections. What many of them don’t know is that there is a much safer, natural, economical way to boost GH and receive the anti-aging as well as fitness benefits.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that taking safe dosages of key amino acids (building blocks of protein) can significantly increase growth hormone levels. Additional research shows that a specific method of exercise training adds to the supplement effects – producing a huge boost in natural growth hormone secretion. When it comes to GH the body is its own best pharmacy. With specific nutritional supplementation and exercise, we have a safe, practical way to enjoy the benefits of increased growth hormone without any of the side effects of prescription GH medicines.

GH10x is an all-new, scientifically designed, nutraceutical – a natural supplement with safe, medicinal like effects. I highly recommend this supplement for people over 40 who have already made a commitment to eating healthy and exercising intensely (GH10x will not work for people who do not exercise).

Use 2 servings of GH10x per day while also following a High Intensity Interval Training program, such as the Bill Phillips 5-25 Method. This combination of GH10x plus HIIT will increase your natural growth hormone levels by up to 10 times, allowing you to lose more bodyfat, build more muscle, increase energy and prolong healthy lifespan.

P.S. GH10x can be used along with a Right Light Protein Shake and a serving of the cellular energy supplement STRONGEVITY Rx for the ultimate post-workout super-nutrition shake! This is what I do after every hard workout and it’s what I recommend for you too! ~Bill Phillips

The 25-Minute Workout Which Burns Fat for 40 Hours!

40hr

Why Does High-Intensity-Interval-Training work so much better than old-fashioned cardio?

Forget about how many calories the cardio machines tell you that you are burning from your workout. The real measure of the exercise benefit is in how many calories your body burns AFTER the training is done!

In this chart, you see the results of a scientific study which measured the energy expenditure (calorie burning) during and after a HIIT workout vs. a regular effort workout (like jogging at a steady pace).

HIIT causes your body to burn more calories for 40 Hours After your workout. HIIT has been shown to help people lose twice as much bodyfat over 6 weeks of training (twice as much as people who did longer but average intensity workouts).

It was 15 years ago that I wrote Body-for-LIFE and taught people the ‘High-Point Training Method’ which is a form of HIIT. Today, more than a thousand scientific studies show it works best. Back then there were only a handful of studies and my suggestions of 20 to 30-minute workouts was criticized by the less informed ‘experts.’

HIIT is the BEST workout method for burning fat and also for improving heart health… and c’mon… EVERYONE can make time for 5-25 HIIT workouts!!
