Consider for a moment - our quality of life (and length of life) rests strongly on our physical and mental well-being. Even being in a location/country that has poor amenities and support is not as influential as how we treat ourselves. (conversely, even being in a country that offers a high quality of life does not prevent depression, stress, and anxiety and in fact, can add to these detrimental disorders.

However, this is oversimplified - there is more overlap!

 

The above diagram shows some of the key factors affecting our physical and mental health - but does not truly show the overlap that occurs.

What we eat affects our physical health - we can all relate to that.
But did you know that it also affects our mental health! Long term and short term!

Similarly (or conversely) exercise plays an important role in mental health.

We easily relate to the physical benefits - improved cardio-vascular performance, improved strength, mobility, balance.

But exercise also has profound effects on mental health and can assist with clearer thought, more positive mood, reducing depression, and better brain performance in general.

The image below better shows these interactions and overlaps.

We can now delve more into the factors that affect our quality (and length) of life


What we eat affects our physical health - but also affects our mental health! 

A short-term (and easily understood) example of food and mental health is alcohol. We have all seen how it affects the brain as it has a rather fast and dramatic effect. And from this, we can interpolate that there may a long-term affect with long-term high doses.

There is the "obvious" impact of the alcohol's effect on the brain and the harm on the liver with cirrhosis - but there is also another detrimental effect. The excess Calories causes more fat storage. For many, it is "around the middle" and affects our organs, notably liver (NAFLD) and heart.

There is a more subtle danger out there - and it is more prevalent - and is silent.

Sugar.
You will have heard this before - but did you consider: . . .


You may have seen children affected by sugar - hyper-active, agitated.
Society often laughs this off as "funny".

But what about the long-term affects?
What is really going in their body and brain?
And did you know that it also, less obviously, affects you as an adult?

It's subtle, but it can affect your moods, with depression, anxiety, ADD, euphoria, and general performance.

And what about the other longer-term health impacts - such as dementia and alzheimers caused by 'protein tangles' and beta-amyloids?

Sugar also causes blood-sugar spikes, to which the body responds with high insulin spikes. But this leads to the long-term effects of insulin in the body, as well as insulin resistance (metabolic syndrome) - and this is just a step away from diabetes.

So what is "Sugar".
You'll be surprised to learn that I classify the following as "Sugar"**

  • Table sugar (obvious)

  • Honey (it is not a "healthy" sugar as people think)

  • Flour (we take the starch component from grains and make everything from it and starch = sugar))

  • Rice (again, we eat the starch component from the grain

  • Cereals (see above for flours and grains - plus we often flavour them with honey or dried fruit)

  • Fruit (yes, good old fruit is all sugar, with some fibre thrown in - in fact, it is mostly fructose which is not a good sugar because of the metabolic process limitations)

  • Cakes, buns, biscuits - quite obvious as these are made from the flours, grains, and sugars

  • Milk - particularly skim milk (a surprise? Skim milk has most Calories from lactose (milk sugar) - it's great for baby cows, but check in the mirror and you probably don't fit the criteria!

  • And there's more . . . 

 

 

**Note, I have classified things as "sugar" if they are obviously derived from sugar compounds, or they spike blood sugar in a similar way to pure sugar. Note that our concerns here have to be placed on the EFFECT IN THE BLOOD and in the organs - not whether you visually recognise something as "sugar" or not - you have to know HOW IT BEHAVES IN YOUR BODY/BLOOD STREAM and the IMPACT ON YOUR ORGANS

"You are what you eat" is so true in more ways than you can imagine.

More accurately, it could be restated as "You are what you consume both mentally and physically"

The above diagram now shows the overlap between the physical and mental factors - as well as the "see-saw" decisions and habits that we make every day that determine our health, success, peace of mind, coping skills, and OVERALL QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM FUTURE 

 


Exercise - this is where you can turbo-charge your results!

Exercise, as you have seen, is a critical aspect of retaining youthfulness.

RESISTANCE exercise in particular, is noted for it's enhanced benefits. You could say that it replaces the loads that we (humans) would normally encounter in survival activities if we had not invented all our mod-cons that make life so easy for us.

It stimulates good hormones for health and youth, as well as maintaining and building muscle, tendons, ligaments, and bones!

Our bodies are DESIGNED (or actually EVOLVED) to be put under stress.

It is the STRESS ( or overload) that prompts the body to repair itself, and, if it has been overloaded, it will super-compensate by not only building back up, but ADDING A LITTLE EXTRA in order to adapt to the load.

This adaptation, as you can image, only occurs if the body is repeatedly loaded. Otherwise, we steadily decline to simply cope with the maximum load we experience.

The same is true of the brain.

The saying "Use it or lose it" is simple, but true!

Resistance training is like a turbo-charged version of a day of physical activity.

We can select weights (resistance) that create a beneficial load on the muscles (and other body systems) that would otherwise take a day of low-level loading to achieve.

AMP Your Workout takes this loading TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

Using ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, it can monitor your workout capacity and LEARN about you over a few workouts, and then gradually PROGRESS YOUR CAPACITY

So, in 45 to 60 minutes, you can achieve a thorough stimulus, optimised for your capabilities.
Each workout, the software continues to learn and gradually progress your loading as you improve.

For MAXIMUM RESULTS, you need to TRAIN SMART

The AMP system incorporates algorithms and artificial intelligence to determine your optimal loading - and the AMP techniques are carefully designed and taught to ensure that you load the muscle for maximum effect (and clear monitoring of the performance improvements)

So, what's different about AMP Your Workout and Paul Anderton PT - and the 'standard' style of training and coaching?

AMP Your workout is the result of my own quest for physical development for over 30 years.

I started as a very puny teenager (42kg to be exact) and this inspired me to try to improve my physique.

Results were slow and difficult. I was learning from many embedded paradigms, though I didn't know it at the time. The paradigm "You're really skinny so you have to train really heavy with long rests" didn't seem to work for me. Not much happened and I often injured myself.

Through my persistence, I was a able to answer one of the most perplexing and persistent mysteries: - "How to best lift weights for the greatest benefit . . . " (i.e. what sort of weight, reps and sets are required)

My engineering background provided the answer when I started analysing the process of resistance training and the question of "What makes muscles grow"

The result is the AMP Your Workout app and the AMP techniques that are designed to optimally STRESS THE MUSCLE.

The AMP Your Workout app provides the algorithms and artificial intelligence to take your workout to the optimal efficiency, and the techniques I teach ensure that the muscles experience the optimal loading.

That is the key difference. Where most coaches teach you "how to lift weights" and perform an exercise (in traditional form), I teach "
How to get the most benefit from each workout by STRESSING THE MUSCLE - using a combination of the patent-pending AMP algorithms and system".

This results in faster, safer workouts that optimally achieve what a workout is designed to achieve**.

**(I refer here to a muscle-conditioning workout. There are other workout forms such as power-lifting, olympic-lifting, cardio-vascular conditioning etc)
The AMP Your Workout style is aimed at the most common and popular objectives of most gym members - looking better physically and improving strength and fitness.
Most people on this quest actually train in a way that is not optimal for their objective, because they follow outdated paradigms and misguided beliefs.

AMP improves the quality of their workout and accelerates the results, safer and with scientific guidance)

I can highly recommend Paul, His incredible depth of knowledge and patience is second to none! I started training with Paul only a few months after my accident and thanks to him, I have surpassed my goals.

 

Paul helped tailor a unique training regime to suit my complex injuries.

 

Most trainers are very stubborn about their program but Paul was always happy to change, remodel or adjust any exercises for me.

 

Not only did I return to my pre-crash strength but Paul has taught me a lot about correct technique and safety.

 

If you are a newbie or even a seasoned weightlifter, Paul can help you achieve your goals.

 

Using his app Amp Your Workout, I was able to see my improvements all the way!

I'm a 22 year old male who has been 'lifting' since the age of 16.

 

Over the years I've learnt so much from trial and error as well as research and very little if not nothing from 'bro science'.

 

However what I found to be most beneficial when it comes to training after years of trying different methods, is "AMP your workout".

 

The whole concept shocked me and tbh was hard to accept at first, But once trialling it I realised it's the way to go for muscle building. At first it took some getting used to the app, But now it's second nature to use.

 

It not only offers me much quicker workouts allowing me to get more in and do more during the day, but it also offers a consistent solid session each time leaving me well and truly 'spent'. I highly recommend it for those who want to build muscle.

 

Save yourselves years of research, trail and error and bro science by getting onto it. You will get results and you will get them fast provided you have proper nutritional advice to follow. 

 

Paul as a personal trainer with the "AMP" app is awesome. Paul genuinely cares for how you go and wants the best for you. He's not only very knowledgeable with training but also nutrition. His expertise and knowledge in the area has not only educated me immensely (even after all those years of learning), but also inspired me.

 

If you listen and do what he says you cannot fail, whilst the whole time being motivated by his expertise and thorough explanation every session. Highly recommended for those who want to build muscle and build it fast.

 

The best part about it, is that with this method it's all natural and incredibly healthy for you.
