Biology Feeds On Instability
Biology can turn piss to wine. Poison to elixir. Threat to strength. Instability to stability. So long as the dose doesn’t exceed today’s capabilities, the system will return ready for greater challenges tomorrow.
The basis of my Fission Fusion Training Model works by cycling two primary stress signatures. But that is for another post…
Till then know that your biology can only do two things essentially:
– Ingest energy
– Expend energy
These two energy conduits are the dynamic duo of your metabolism. Your metabolism being a struggle between anabolism and catabolism.
And it is around these two that we shall design our intentions of physiological manipulation to redesign the system, your body and mine.
I use very high volume and high intensity (a qualitative measure, not a percent of max) training to stress the systems energy expenditure conduit. And very low calorie eating on these same days to ADD to the total stress per day, stressing the energy ingestion conduit.
The stability of an organism lies in resilience, the homeostatic capacity to reestablish itself. – Carl Woese
Away from the iron, I will release the pressure valves and cease training and increase the calorie counts to push the body towards a state of healing and recovery.
There are multiple ways to stress the binary relation of the energy conduits, depending on the client’s objective, long term and short. The principle to be applied can only be extracted from WITHIN the clients psycho-physiological gestalt. But the above should serve to elucidate the point; that training, is playing chess with stress.
