The true mark is 'repeating' - it signifies consistent excellence. (Go Lakers, get that back-to back!)
1. In fitness, no matter how strong or fast you are, you're not effective unless you can do it repeatedly.
2. ATP (Adenosine TriPhospahate) is the key compound controlling this.
a.) Your ATP is depleted in about 30 seconds. (ie. you only have maximum exertion for about 30 secs)
b.) You then have to rely on other energy systems, whilst the ATP is replenished.
3. ATP replinishment takes
a.) about 20 secs to get 50% recovery
b.) about 40 secs for 75%
c.) about 60 secs for 90%
d.) about 3 mins for 100%
4. In the meantime your options are to get energy from your anaerobic system and 2 potential sources
a.) Lactic acid
b.) Alactic acid
5. Lactic acid can be broken down to form ATP
a.) You know what it feels like to have lactic acid in your system, as it put pressure on your nerve endings (giving you that heavy feel)
b.) Pineapple optimizes your body to feel more comfortable with lactic acid, plus the ability to turn the lactic acid into ATP quicker
6. Alactic acid can be broken down to form ATP
a.) but can only give you a few seconds of energy
b.) The only way to get better at this, it to train in short burst of high intensity
c.) Exactly what we do with Pineapple training

"Well tried, great effort." – all sounds positive stuff.
Yeah – we all want to be positive, nice people. And we all like to think that putting in the ‘hard yards’ – ie. Working hard will reap reward.
Boom! Wake up
It’s about making and being part of things that work & succeed.
Of course there is ‘work’ involved – BUT it’s productive.
Boom – wake up to the utter BS that gets propagated in the fitness world.
1. Your ‘cardio’ work out will make you fatter. Yeah, the one you’ve been doing for donkey-years to jack-sh*t result. Oh and bored your brain senseless. Needless to talk about how you now have all sorts of pain and injury.
Juice you Body Up with Pineapple.

Challenge – ‘a call to engage in a contest of strength and skill’
“in the sky, there is no distinction of East or West; People create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”
“Accept no limitation as limitation”
“Winners have purpose. Losers have wishes”
Explore - ‘investigate possibility for improvement’
“you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
“Come to the edge” the man said – “But I can’t fly” – He eventually came. The man pushed him – and he FLEW!
