An easy approach to Improving Insulin Sensitivity | Professor Caractacus Sinclair

Coconut Oil Insulin Insulin Sensitivity Natural Health Professor Caractacus Sinclair

The Professor’s thoughts on insulin sensitivity: There's the challenging way and the more challenging way:  The challenging way would be to live exclusively off meat, eggs, fish, seafood, game, poultry, their fats, nuts (not salted or fried in canola oil), yogurt (only yogurt with a breakdown of fat and protein and minimal carbs, like fage or chobani if you can get it), cheese (only real cheese which is fat and protein and minimal or no sugar), cream, avocados. Also fine are olive, nut and coconut oil or good quality butter. You can drink only water, black coffee and green / black...

Things to ponder with your Strength Program | Professor Caractacus Sinclair

Motivation Professor Caractacus Sinclair Strength Training Weight Training

The Professor’s thoughts on Strength Programs:For a strength program to work long term it can’t be too demanding. If it wipes you out and leaves you sore then it isn’t going to produce much progress in the long run. Soreness and fatigue will cumulate and lead to injury rather than improvement. Your program should allow you to keep coming back for more without hurting you. Despite this, you do need overload so that you can make progress. Unless there is a stimulus which shocks the organism into adaptation there will be no adaptation. You just need to make sure that the stimulus...

Static Stretching and Weight Training | Professor Caractacus Sinclair

The Professor’s thoughts stretching and weight training:What’s my take on static stretching before, after and during training?

Using a Lifting belt for your Workout | Professor Caractacus Sinclair

The Professor’s thoughts on lifting belts: Do you need to wear a lifting belt? Lifting belts are useful tools, and powerlifters, weightlifters and strong men use them because they allow them to lift more. It is worth bearing in mind that a powerlifter, strongman or weightlifter will have conditioned an incredibly strong back and trunk by training without the belt. If you are allowed to wear a belt in your sport that’s one thing, many lifters are, but if you become dependent on the belt to teach you how to protect your back and exert force, then you won’t be able to...

Coming Back after an injury | Professor Caractacus Sinclair

The Professor’s thoughts on coming back after an injury or a layoff: You need to be willing to adapt and pay attention to your body. You may respond totally differently in your early 20’s to something that was working fine when you were a teenager. The same goes for when you hit 30, 40 and 50. There’s no best diet, exercise or set/repetition scheme. People aren’t the same and you won’t be the same person at 47 that you were at 27. Is the training you’ve adopted the right training for you? The answer will be yes if it has...
