Legendary trainer Tim Grover uses his experience with the world's top athletes to drill down into the killer instinct that separates the good from the great, showing you how to tap into the dark side of competitive intensity in order to win--regardless of the circumstance or cost. For more than two decades, legendary trainer Tim Grover has taken the greats--Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, and hundreds of relentless competitors in sports, business, and every walk of life--and made them greater. Now, for the first time ever, he reveals what it takes to achieve total mental and physical dominance, showing you how to be relentless and achieve whatever you desire. Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, Grover breaks down what it takes to be unstoppable: you keep going when everyone else is giving up, you thrive under pressure, you never let your emotions make you weak. In "The Relentless 13," he details the essential traits shared by the most intense competitors and achievers in sports, business, and all walks of life. Relentless shows you how to trust your instincts and get in the Zone; how to control and adapt to any situation; how to find your opponent's weakness and attack. Grover gives you the same advice he gives his world-class clients--"don't think"--and shows you that anything is possible. Packed with previously untold stories and unparalleled insight into the psyches of the most successful and accomplished athletes of our time, Relentless shows you how even the best get better...and how you can too.

Fascia is a building network in our body that gives us support, structure, and form. Whether a thigh is firm and beautifully shaped or like jelly basically depends on the tone of the fibrous connective tissue-the fascia. Therefore, we must train and firm the fascia in addition to strengthening the muscles. Only then will we have defined muscles, a well-toned body contour, and a slender shape. In collaboration with renowned fascia researcher, Robert Schleip, PhD, Divo Mueller has developed a new training that specifically tones connective tissue. Applying the power principles presented in this book-sense, bounce, tone, and nourish-you can reduce cellulite and eliminate bat wings and a flabby bottom. Using the illustrated and detailed full-body workouts presented will tone the seven important fascial chains. This innovative training approach will especially benefit those with weak and flabby connective tissue. Additionally, physiotherapists, Pilates instructors, movement trainers, and fitness coaches can easily adapt these power principles as a part of their training programs.

However, traditional heart disease protocols--with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it all wrong. Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry. The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes for Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease reveals the real culprits of heart disease, including: Inflammation, Fibrinogen, Triglycerides, Homocysteine, Belly fat, Triglyceride to HCL ratios, High glycemic levels, and offers 100 recipies that will help reduce the risk of heart disease. Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D. and Stephen Sinatra, M.D. give readers a 4-part strategy based on the latest studies and clinical findings for effectively preventing, managing, and reversing heart disease, focusing on diet, exercise, supplements, and stress and anger management.

Get proven, evidence-based strategies from the experts with The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes for Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease. MYTHS VS. FACTS Myth: High cholesterol is the cause of heart disease. Fact: Cholesterol is only a minor player in the cascade of inflammation which is a cause of heart disease. Myth: High cholesterol is a predictor of heart attack. Fact: There is no correlation between cholesterol and heart attack. Myth: Lowering cholesterol with statin drugs will prolong your life. Fact: There is no data to show that statins have a significant impact on longevity. Myth: Statin drugs are safe. Fact: Statin drugs can be extremely toxic including causing death. Myth: Statin drugs are useful in men, women and the elderly. Fact: Statin drugs do the best job in middle-aged men with coronary disease. Myth: Statin drugs are useful in middle-aged men with coronary artery disease because of its impact on cholesterol. Fact: Statin drugs reduce inflammation and improve blood viscosity (thinning blood). Statins are extremely helpful in men with low HDL and coronary artery disease. Myth: Saturated fat is dangerous. Fact: Saturated fats are not dangerous. The killer fats are the transfats from partially hydrogenated oils. Myth: The higher the cholesterol, the shorter the lifespan. Fact: Higher cholesterol protects you from gastrointestinal disease, pulmonary disease and hemorrhagic stroke. Myth: A high carbohydrate diet protects you from heart disease. Fact: Simple processed carbs and sugars predispose you to heart disease. Myth: Fat is bad for your health. Fact: Monounsaturated and saturated fats protect you from metabolic syndrome. Sugar is the foe in cardiovascular disease. Myth: There is good (HDL) cholesterol and bad (LDL) cholesterol. Fact: This is over-simplistic. You must fractionate LDL and HDL to assess the components. Myth: Cholesterol causes heart disease. Fact: Cholesterol is only a theory in heart disease and only the small component of LP(a) or "bb shot" LDL predisposes one to oxidation and inflammation.
