Optimize Hormones to Burn Trouble Spot Fat

Get Rid of the Belly Fat, Upper Back Flab, Love Handles and More! By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. MendelsonTrouble spot fat is a lingering plague; causing extreme suffering for professionals in our profession due to the anguish we share with our clients.  Despite tremendous losses in body fat some of my patients and the population at large must face the near impossible task of reducing these trouble spots.  This epidemic is impossible to hide- fat accumulates in the abdomen and love handles for men while women have an extremely difficult time eliminating excess leg, buttocks and hip body fat.  The scale goes in the right direction, but these ugly pockets of fat will not go way, amazingly enough these areas may increase during a severely restricted diet and later on in this article you will learn exactly why this happens.

Trouble Spot Cause Solutions
Flabby Triceps Testosterone low Estrogen high Increase consumption of “good” dietary fats, weight training, 8-9 hours of sleep each night. Fat Reduce FBO5 Day & Night, 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder
Excessive male breast tissue High estrogen levels- pro hormone/steroid abuse, high alcohol intake Weight training based exercise, reduce saturated fat (from non organic sources) and sugar intake. Increase monounsaturated fats and fish oil (Alpha Omega M3)
Large Buttocks High estrogen, low thyroid, excessive cardio Avoid Excessive Aerobics and refined carb intake.  Alpha Omega M3 6-9 per day.  Eliminate Alcohol.
Beer Belly (men) love handles and upper leg fat (females) High stress and excessive sugar intake.  Frequent Alcohol consumption KISS Rapid Fat Loss Nutrition Plan.  Alpha Omega M3, Fat Reduce FBO5, 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder, GCX10
Upper Back Fat Poor Thyroid function and high stress Avoid Overtraining and high sugar intake.  100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder

Hormones Govern Fat Loss

The public has little understanding of hormones and how they govern the actions of the human machine.  Testosterone, cortisol, estrogen, thyroid, insulin, etc. amounts and ratios will ultimately determine if you are fat, ripped, strong, weak, lethargic and so on.  Intense examinations of blood work reveal the complex hormonal cascades that can be specifically correlated to trouble body fat levels. Where you are storing body fat will tell you what hormones must be addressed through nutrition, supplementation and training strategies.  Tracking the progress of each of these sites with an accurate caliper body fat testing device will help you monitor the progress of each individual site providing powerful insight needed to make refinements to your routines.

The Hormonal Connection To Body Fat Accumulation

“Over the years patients who are obsessed with any aspect of life often times including appearance seemed to have the highest levels of stubborn fat in spite of their dedicated efforts to perfect their bodies.  Strangely enough these same patients had intense cravings for sugary foods for extended periods of time.   At times these patients gave in to these cravings and would experience a huge increase in fat mass literally overnight. 

Blood work revealed extremely high levels of the stress hormone cortisol; cortisol is well known for its counter activity to testosterone and ability to reduce muscle mass.  Only recently have we discovered that this same hormone deposits body fat at incredible rates.

Cortisol causes fat storage in the mid section for men and legs/buttocks for women by activating fat storage receptors and ruining insulin sensitivity.  Resulting high insulin levels contribute to the problem as insulin is a potent fat storage hormone.

After identifying the most common obstacles to trouble spot fat loss- my attention turned to creating a solution with a comprehensive nutrition, exercise and supplementation strategy.  I am very familiar with all of the fat loss products on the market as my patients keep me informed as to what they are using.  When developing a product it must produce great results for my patients under my supervision before I will even think about putting it on the market.  The only way to accomplish this is with elaborate human testing and I have evaluated an endless number of ingredient combinations over many years learning a great deal each time about the mechanism of each ingredient in addition to how the specific ratio of ingredients impacts the big picture of success.

Every individual will have a vastly different hormonal profile and I suggest having a qualified doctor measure your hormonal levels so that you compare results after at least 16 weeks of proper nutrition, exercise, and supplementation efforts.  In some cases cleaning up the diet alone will resolve hormonal problems.  Addressing specific problems with supplementation can help in coordination with proper diet and exercise.

50 Caliber Training For Rapid Fat Loss

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

GCX10 Rapid Physique and Performance Enhancer

GCX10 Attacks Stubborn Belly Fat While Potentially Doubling the Rates of Strength Gains and Muscle Growth.

Scott I have lost 10 pounds of body fat and gained muscle during the last 12 weeks with your customized training and nutrition plans. With summer approaching what is next to help me burn 20 pounds of body fat so I can look great at the beach or pool? Michael L DC

Michael now that we have a firm base in place we can use more aggressive training and nutrition tactics to get you Leaner and Meaner by summer. After reviewing your training records I can see that following week 3 you did not increase loads as frequently which indicates the training stimuli became stale to a degree.

During weeks 3 and 6 of the next 6 week training routine we will implement 50 Caliber Training to send fat burning into overdrive.

50 Caliber Training cannot be used every week due to the level of difficulty and stress placed on the muscles and nervous system, however used correctly in conjunction with the right nutrition changes it is a powerful Physique transformation weapon. During weeks 1,2,4 and 5 You will use the same exercises, but different set, rep, tempo and rest schemes to set the stage for the 50 Caliber training during weeks 3 and 6. The consistency of the exercise movements helps to build the necessary continuity to maximize performance.

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder For Rapid Fat Loss

Dr. Serrano’s 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder proprietary blends of ingredients are absolutely crucial to accelerate nervous system and muscle recovery between sets while laying the raw material foundation for rapid muscle growth, recovery and fat loss.

Advanced Trainees Must Change Training Factors Frequently

We will make strategic changes to the nutrition plan during weeks 3 and 6 to take full advantage of the metabolic and hormonal conditions created by the 50 Caliber sessions. Advanced trainees must make strategic changes to the diet frequently to avoid plateaus and reach their full potential. Macronutrient cycling strategies never cease to produce amazing rates of fat loss and muscle growth.

A Strategic Shock to the System That Doubles the Rate of Fat Burning and Muscle Growth

You will do 50 reps of each exercise listed in a super set fashion to help minimize rest between sets, which in turn increases Growth Hormone Dramatically while stimulating a ton of muscle fibers for rapid growth.  The rest between sets should be no more than 20 seconds which gives you just enough time to sip 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder (naturally flavored with Stevia now available) while grabbing the DBS needed for the next set. While you are pressing for example your back muscles are resting and vice versa.

Maximize the Anabolic Response from Training

The short rest periods are necessary to keep the training sessions under an hour which helps to maximize the anabolic hormonal response from training and prevent over training. Inadequate rest periods and the high volume of reps will increase muscle blood flow dramatically. Dr. Serrano’s 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder proprietary blends of ingredients are absolutely crucial to accelerate nervous system and muscle recovery between sets while laying the raw material foundation for rapid muscle growth, recovery and fat loss. Trainees simply cannot execute the 50 Caliber sessions to the best of their ability or optimally benefit without the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis sipped before, during and immediately after the workout.

Double Rates of Muscle Growth and Strength Levels with GCX10

We highly recommend the New GCX10 Rapid Physique and Performance Enhancer 30 minutes before the training sessions to potentially double your rate of muscle growth and strength while combating fatigue during highly intense training phases. Dr. Serrano used multiple published studies and his own extensive patient research to assemble the exclusive blend of Lactoferrin, ATP and Glycine to change the Iron Game once again with GCX10.

GCX10 contains an even higher amount of ATP used in a 2013 published research study which demonstrated doubling strength increases of the 1 rep max of the squat and dead lift over 12 weeks vs. the control group. (2) The participants using ATP also gained nearly twice the amount of lean muscle tissue over the 12 week study while showing fewer signs of fatigued during higher volume training phases.

The research group using Lactoferrin within the GCX10 lost an average of 1.79 inches of body fat from their waist while the control group lost only .35 inches over the same 8 week Research Trial. (1)

You will start with the heaviest load possible that you can execute properly for 8 reps and do as many sets as needed in Giant set fashion to hit 50 quality reps of each exercise. This means do a set of A1, rest 20 seconds, Set of A2, rest 20 seconds, Set of A3, rest 20 seconds, Set of A4, rest 20 seconds and repeat the sequence as many times needed.

Challenging loads are crucial to stimulate a wide cross section of muscle fibers with the greatest potential for growth. On average it will take clients 8 sets to hit 50 reps and training with a partner for a reliable spot is helpful. During the later sets you may only be able to earn 4 or 5 reps per set which is to be expected. Your performance should be better during week 6 than week 3 if you keep your head and your heart in the game! Advanced clients may change the order of the exercises during week 6 to keep stimuli fresh.
