DESCRIPTION : The first definitive account of the new frontier of sports recovery science, which shows what we should and shouldn't be doing between exercising to achieve maximum performance. 'Christie Aschwanden is simply one of the best science writers in the world. Whether you're striving for a personal best or simply wondering about that post-workout beer, Good to Go is the definitive tour through a bewildering jungle of scientific (and pseudo-scientific) claims that comprise a multi-billion dollar recovery industry.' - David Epstein, bestselling author of The Sports Gene. All athletes from Olympians to weekend warriors must toe the line between training and recovery to maximize the benefits of workouts and reach optimal performance. For the longest time, coaches and training manuals have emphasized training. But now sports science is homing in on an even more fundamental part: recovery. The aim of training is to force the body to adapt to stress, and this adaptation is what makes you fitter and better able to perform. But to adapt, you need to optimize recovery too. You only benefit from training that you can recover from, and the ability to recover determines how much training your body can handle. Recovery, the science shows, is a crucial component of exercise training and it's starting to look like it may be the most important one. Good to Go is the first definitive account of this new frontier in sports and exercise science. This developing science informs not only professional athletes and sports teams, but also people who are exercising for health or fitness and those who are aiming to take a little off their personal record. Good to Go will take readers on an intimate, light-hearted journey through the science of exercise recovery, from ice-baths and cryogenic freezing chambers to the science behind Usain Bolt's love of chicken nuggets and Tom Brady's recovery pyjamas. In the same vein as David Epstein's The Sports Gene and Bill Gifford's Spring Chicken, Good to Go assesses the science and claims of a wide variety of recovery methods and potions, and debunks the junk to give a clear picture of what we should actually be doing to look after our bodies better between exercising.

DESCRIPTION : A gripping, ultimately triumphant memoir that's also the most comprehensive and comprehensible study of the neuroscience of addiction written for the general public. FROM THE INTRODUCTION: "We are prone to a cycle of craving what we don't have, finding it, using it up or losing it, and then craving it all the more. This cycle is at the root of all addictions, addictions to drugs, sex, love, cigarettes, soap operas, wealth, and wisdom itself. But why should this be so? Why are we desperate for what we don't have, or can't have, often at great cost to what we do have, thereby risking our peace and contentment, our safety, and even our lives?" The answer, says Dr. Marc Lewis, lies in the structure and function of the human brain. Marc Lewis is a distinguished neuroscientist. And, for many years, he was a drug addict himself, dependent on a series of dangerous substances, from LSD to heroin. His narrative moves back and forth between the often dark, compellingly recounted story of his relationship with drugs and a revelatory analysis of what was going on in his brain. He shows how drugs speak to the brain - which is designed to seek rewards and soothe pain - in its own language. He shows in detail the neural mechanics of a variety of powerful drugs and of the onset of addiction, itself a distortion of normal perception. Dr. Lewis freed himself from addiction and ended up studying it. At the age of 30 he traded in his pharmaceutical supplies for the life of a graduate student, eventually becoming a professor of developmental psychology, and then of neuroscience - his field for the last 12 years. This is the story of his journey, seen from the inside out. From the Hardcover edition.

DESCRIPTION : You've finally reached the pivotal moment in your life to get clean and sober. I welcome you to join me as I share my quest for addiction recovery and sobriety. This book is hopeful and encouraging. It is a must read for the fellow addict that deserves a new chapter in life. I wrote this book with the burning desire and a passion for reaching out to fellow addicts as a resource for them to possibly utilize some of my experiences and methods for recovery and relapse prevention. The book encompasses my life journey from my early teen years into adulthood as an addict, which details some of the painful aspects that encouraged me to turn to substance abuse as a coping mechanism. This book also alludes to my experience with the recovery process which I share many of the self-researched and time-tested techniques that helped me cultivate my successful rehabilitation process. Addiction exerts a long and powerful influence on the brain that manifests in three distinct ways: craving for the object of addiction, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. While overcoming addiction is possible, the process is often long, slow, and complicated. The word "addiction" is derived from a Latin term for "enslaved by" or "bound to." Anyone who has struggled to overcome an addiction - or has tried to help someone else to do so - understands why, and ultimately, we can understand that addiction is a "dis-ease". From my experience, addiction is also a disease of isolation. The question of whether addiction is a disease or not has perplexed clinicians and scholars and researchers for decades. At one point, addiction was easily called the disease. At other points in time, there was considerable debate about how to classify these phenomena. I think it's best to talk about the disease of addiction. The word "addiction" is derived from a Latin term for "enslaved by" or "bound to."

At one point, addiction was easily called the disease. At other points in time, there was considerable debate about how to classify these phenomena. I think it's best to talk about the disease of addiction. My story is like so many others who chose to foolishly abuse alcohol and drugs...most of us were unaware that we had these addictions that are conveniently labeled as a "disease." However, the fact is that each one of us is a unique individual with our own story to tell. Usually, the suffering alcoholic/ addict hits a point called "rock bottom" in their lives where they choose to get better or turn for the worse. When this happens, life-changing events usually transpire to test the person's character and integrity. Hitting "rock bottom" was my personal alarm clock for realizing I had a serious substance abuse problem. There was a defining moment in my life that turned a page, sending me in a new direction. Making the transition from being actively addicted to being in recovery is a complex physical and psychological process. There is a lot to learn in recovery and we have to make a lot of changes internally and externally. Writing this book has given me a wholesome and hopeful perspective on life and the world we live in. I find that I spend more time embraced in bold prayer and meditation which grants me the influence to believe in miracles for others. I trust that there are great people in this world that contribute to making a significant difference, consequently making the world a better place for all of us to live in. Composing this book was my contribution to 'pay it forward' in a positive way. I am honored.

DESCRIPTION : There have been several scientific books and lecture papers written on the subject of our holographic universe but none have gone far enough as to expand peoples thinking and explain the true nature of reality. Music is a natural consequence of the pure mathematics within nature. Music is a true universal language as Music is vibrational physics and mathematics that is a language understood by the human mind. The silent music of the universe or Aether Physics from the RG Veda is the only ONE science that explains the true perfection of creation and our connection to the holographic universe.Quantum Metrics are from the RG Veda: Quantum Physicist already knowing the answer as they have taken it the RG Veda then creates complicated elongated mathematical equations to derive at their Metric, which they name after themselves. I explain how to calculate all 90 metrics contained in RG Veda using a dividend and divisor and how to apply this system of harmony to devices you can manufacture such as electric motors. I would not dare name any of the yet “undiscovered” Metrics after myself, as no man should claim Gods work as his own.Although I have examples of the RG Vedas and other sources mentioning the Vedic Meter no one to my knowledge as given a full interpretation of them and what they relate to as I have done. I have deciphered and attempted to simplify one of the most ancient of mysteries and show how to apply it. My intention in releasing this information is to enlighten humanity as to assist in the rebuilding of the foundations of science for the advancement of all. We all must aspire to a brighter future and not allow this information to remain the industrial secret of occult societies.These societies have handicapped humanity for long enough and it is time to enter into the light from the darkness and advance our civilization. The zenith is the point in the sky or celestial sphere directly above an observer. God, sees all life in all dimensions and knows all of us, we should all strive for Krsna Consciousness and free ourselves from the illusion of our material world. When there is harmony between the mind, heart and resolution then nothing is impossible.
