Body Athletic

Rest is critical to recovery and healing. Adequate sleep is a must. But sitting for long periods when you’re well is counterproductive to good health. Our joints and lower back stiffen, circulation is impaired and metabolic waste slowly pools up causing fatigue and chronic pain.

Biological Bodybuilding

There are two forms of bodybuilding. The first is called Biological. It is the best, the original and commonly known as "natural". It is the form advocated by all bodybuilding associations, but seldom practiced by the world's best bodybuilders; in fact, there are NO natural bodybuilders at the very top of the competitive bodybuilding ladder, as in Zip, Notta, Zero, Diddly-Squat, NONE!

Back to the Gym

Fitness is for everybody. Depicted as The Incredible Machine by the National Geographic Society, the human body has the capacity for remarkable achievements in strength and endurance. We are considered the most dangerous predator on earth and if well conditioned, we are built for stamina and designed beautifully for adaptation.

A Stitch in Time...Hurts!!

Almost everyone at one time or another has either experienced for themselves, heard of or seen someone else experience what is commonly known as a “side-ache”. It’s certainly well known to many parents who grew up with the same warning they now give their own children, "Wait an hour after eating before you go swimming, so you don’t get a cramp and drown."

Five Steps To Health

"Positive health requires a knowledge of man's primary constitution and of the powers of various foods, both those natural and those resulting from human skill. But eating alone is not enough for health. There must be exercise of which the effects must likewise be known. If there is any deficiency in food or exercise, the body will fall sick". ~ Hippocrates - 5th century BC

Principles of Weight Training

Q: Dear Cory, I know weight training plays an important role in fitness, health and strength training. I’ve heard and read many theories pertaining to how I’m supposed to train. Could you explain some of the principles that you use yourself in gym and share how they helped you win the Canadian Masters Natural Bodybuilding Championships?

Tracy's Contest Diet

Like Cory, I start "dieting" 100 days prior to the contest date. Year round our diet consists of whole natural food so the transition isn't difficult. We simply modify (reduce) our intake of carbohydrates and fats and increase the volume of our training as we get closer to the event. This forces a biological response that reduces our body fat.

Tracy's 3-day Workout Routine

Philosophy: Never use physical exercise as a direct means of mentally managing your body weight (body composition) and especially body fat (adipose tissue). That is best achieved through optimum nutrition. Consume a whole food diet compatible with your genome and learn to manage your intake of macronutrients (fats, carbs and proteins).

Join a Gym! Don't Weight

Whey the Benefits. I can’t begin to tell you what a significant role the gym has been in my life. For 23 years I’ve trotted to the gym, rain or shine, whether I felt like it or not. The presumption of knowing I’ll feel better when it’s over sustains me.

It's a Fulltime Job

Yes folks, good health is a full time job. It’s a 4-letter word; spelled W.O.R.K. Thought is the first level of creation, so be clear and mindful of what you think. You can observe yourself recreate yourself and change what you desire. All life arises out of choice.
