Determining The Best Meditation For You… And, The Deep Meditation System

Meditation has long been practiced to gain inner peace, calm the mind and increase focus and awareness. Practitioners are said to gain a greater concentration level which promotes creative thinking and problem solving. A wide variety of meditation methods and techniques are available. However the best meditation techniques are the ones that produce the greatest result for you.

Different cultures and spiritual groups practice varied processes of meditation, including chanting, breathing and concentration. While it is common that many traditions contend that their practices are the way it is best done, they may not work for every person as well. It is possible to try one that appeals to you and see how it works for you, you can always switch to another method if the current one does not fit you.

Meditation has been gaining believers in scientific circles as well, although more research is being done all the time. Currently studies have shown that meditation may help cope with conditions such as Anxiety Disorders, Binge Eating, Depression, Fatigue, High Blood Pressure, Sleep Disorders and even Substance Abuse. However it is important to stress that Meditation should not be used as replacement for traditional medical treatment and you should discuss with your health care provider if this is a desired treatment option.

One method of meditation is guided which focuses on using visualization of places or situations that are relaxing to you. You may have a guide or teacher to assist you during this process. During guided meditation you attempt to use as many senses as possible to relax yourself.

Another method is mantra meditation, perhaps simply uttering a calming word silently and repeatedly. Also thoughts or phrases can be used repeatedly, anything that helps eliminate distractions and enhances your focus. Transcendental meditation is a good example of this method.

A popular method combining movement and controlled breathing to calm the mind is yoga. By focusing more on the movements and breathing your attention is pulled away from everyday concerns and hastens relaxation. Besides a calm mind and better focus you will also gain physical benefits from the exercise as well.

Walking meditation focuses all your attention on when each foot strikes the ground as you walk. Walking is an almost automatic function that allows our mind to mostly wander as we do it. By focusing your mind on the walking experience only you are clearing it of all other thoughts and distractions. You should always regain focus on your feet, legs and breathing if you begin to think about miscellaneous thoughts.

These are a few methods that vary greatly, but show that meditation can be varied to meet an individual’s needs and desires. You may gain both physical and psychological benefits depending on the mode you practice, but you may also practice more than one mode to allow you to meditate wherever you may be. Whether you choose a secular form or religious based form is up to you, many of the spiritual meditations are available to people outside of the religion.

The simplest and most effective meditation technique we have found is the Deep Meditation System, which quite literally does all the hard work for you! You simply put your headphones on, close your eyes, relax and let the soundtrack guide you gently into the deepest, most pleasurable and relaxing meditation you have ever experienced!

Fat Burning A Different Approach

300x250

No more cardio? Well, not quite—but if you train with weights correctly, you won’t need to visit that boring treadmill quite as often to keep your abs sharp.

And I’m not talking about interval cardio, although the weight-training method I’ve been preaching has an HIIT feel to it. That’s the F4X method, (featured in Old School New Body) which is moderate-weight, high-fatigue training with short rests between sets. It burns more fat and pumps up your muscles like crazy too. Here’s the drill:

You take a weight with which you can get 15 reps, but you only do 10; rest 30 seconds, then do it again—and so on for four sets. On the fourth set, you go to failure, and if you get 10 reps, you increase the weight on the exercise at your next workout. Notice how those sets are like intervals with short breaks between—you can even pace between sets to burn extra calories, but there’s more.

Fat-burning pathway 1: While that training style does great things for muscle growth, via myofibrillar and sarcoplasmic expansion, you also get loads of muscle burn. That lactic acid pooling has a spiking effect on your growth hormone output—and GH is a potent fat burner. Fire up muscle burning to get your GH churning. (GH also amplifies other anabolic hormones, so it effects both muscle and rippedness.)

Fat-burning pathway 2: If you do the reps correctly on every set, you’ll also get myofibrillar trauma. The myofibrils are the force-generating strands in muscle fibers. By “damaging” them with slower, controlled negative strokes, you force the need for extra energy during recovery. In other words, your body runs hotter while you’re out of the gym as it revs to repair the microtears.

To attain that extra fat-burning trauma, use one-second positives and three-second negatives on all 10 reps of all four sets. On a bench press that’s one second up and three seconds down. It’s the slow lowering that will produce the metabolic momentum after your workout. (That rep speed will also give you 40 seconds of tension time on every set, an ideal hypertrophic TUT.)

Fat-burning pathway 3: Now if you really want to get some blubber-busting microtrauma, try your last set of a F4X sequence in X-centric style. That’s one-second positives and six-second negatives. You may have to reduce the weight, but it will be worth it. Try for eight of those, 56 seconds of tension time, and you should feel the results the next day. Your muscles will be aching, but it’s a good indication that fat is baking.

F4X for a GH surge, slower negatives for fat-burning micro trauma and X-centric for even more time under tension and fat extinction. It all adds up to faster leanness with less meanness—because you’ll need less cardio. Prepare for acid-etched abs! Yes!! Even as you age this system works, in fact it is the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth.

Stay tuned, train smart and be Built for Life.
