The Hormone
Think of Hormones as being like the mail-
man, they act like the messengers from
your organs to your cells within your body.

In this report we will be looking at 3
different hormones in particular and how
they affect your fat loss journey.

Our first hormone is what we call:

#1 Cortisol

The primary function of Cortisol is to
increase the amino acid supply to the
liver when there are low levels present.

According to Dr Janet Star: When
Cortisol is secreted, it creates the following:
1. A breakdown of muscle protein, leading to the
release of amino acids (which are the "building
blocks" of protein) into the bloodstream.
2. These amino acids are then used by the liver to
synthesize glucose for energy, in a process called
3. This process raises the blood sugar level so the brain
will have more glucose for energy.
4. At the same time, the other tissues of the body
decrease their use of glucose as fuel.
5. Cortisol also leads to the release of so-called fatty
acids, an energy source from fat cells, for use by the

Taken together, these energy-directing processes prepare
the individual to deal with stresses and ensure that the
brain receives adequate energy sources.

Too much of this hormone however
can lead to terrible outcomes:

Fat storage and more specifically belly fat storage &
Muscle breakdown, yes Cortisol will breakdown all that
hard earned muscle, and as we know, it is the muscle that
helps us burn body fat.

A study in the American journal of physiology reported

“higher Cortisol levels in overweight adolescents
also contribute to increased trunk fat and higher
lipid levels”

Cortisol is known as the stress hormone, and I am not
just speaking about being stressed out because you are
late to a meeting, I am talking about all types of stressors
such as:

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

Physical - often occurs when you are over training, or
have muscle imbalances

Chemical - this can be caused by chemical products we
use, such as cleaning products and personal care items

Nutritional - this is caused by poor food quality, but
most of the time poor food choices, such as highly
proceed and high saturated fat choices

Electromagnetic - this is caused by the lack of, or to
much sunlight

Thermal - this is how your body maintains its internal

Now your probably reading this hoping for an answer on
how we can reduce excess Cortisol?

And like every great movie there is a
Good Guy and A Bad Guy…
In this case, the good guy is the Hormone we call GH, no
not the hair straightener.

#2 Growth Hormone

GH is what we refer to as growth hormone, also know as
the fountain of Youth.

Studies have shown
that overweight people
have lower GH levels
and high Cortisol levels
than lean individuals.

So the job of the
overweight person is to
simply increase GH and
lower Cortisol.

Shabamm its as easy as that…

Hold on Brett… there is more to it, isn’t there?

Well, yes, a little bit more….

But its great news,

By manipulating a few of the fat loss protocols we
discussed in the first video, we can actually promote
GH release during our training, so we can burn fat faster,
and more importantly shape up that waistline.

HOW do we do it?

Great question.

Lets keep it simple.

We want to manipulate our training
in such a way that we will increase
the amount of GH we release..

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

For this to take place we will use a training strategy,
where our primary aim is to promote maximum Lactic acid

But what is Lactic Acid?

Another great question.

Latic acid is a by-product of exercising, in technical terms,
it is all to do with the breakdown of fuels and the
conversion processes it goes through.

But in plain English, it is what many people refer to, as
the burn, the point in where you can no longer maintain
strict exercise form and you need to stop.

In the BBSU Circuit
Protocols, we have
specifically designed
workouts that will elicit
maximum GH as humanly

One of the many variables
we manipulate is called

Tempo is what we refer to
as, the speed in which you
complete your specific

By manipulating the concentric (shortening phase) and
the eccentric (lengthening phase) and of course using
advantageous positions, we are able to maximize GH

And the last remaining Hormone is:

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012



Isn’t that the man hormone, that builds big bulky
muscles, hairy faces and that embracing first moment,
when your voice breaks half way through your first ever
class presentation?

NOTE: This will NOT happen

Although the above may be some what true, according to
Dr Susan Rako, she believes testosterone is as much a
womens sex hormone as it is a mans.

The difference here is that Men's bodies generate more
than twenty times more testosterone than women, an
average of seven milligrams per day.

Women, via mainly their ovaries and adrenal glands,
make a tiny three tenths of one milligram of testosterone
per day. (hence why you will never wake up looking like
Arnold Swartzgoverner)

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

But it may come as a surprise to know that women's
ovaries primarily produce testosterone, from which
estrogen (what we call the female hormone) is then

Estrogen can be blamed for excess
fat around the top part of your legs
and of course that dreaded butt

This ovarian production accounts for one-quarter of the
total circulating testosterone in a woman's body.

On the flip side, men's bodies produce their own all-
womanly estrogen, converted by their tissues from their
all-manly testosterone, hence the terms Man Boobs..

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

Testosterone is known as the
hormone of desire

In his book The Hormone Of Desire, Rako maintains
"testosterone is the hormone most critically implicated in
the maintenance of libido, or sexual desire, in women just
as it is men, furthermore helping aid in weight loss’

So there it is, lets start generating more

So how do we do that?

Well, its your lucky day.

Once again we can manipulate our training protocols to
achieve greater testosterone release.

Here are 3 ways on how to produce more
testosterone in your workouts,

But more importantly how to reduce that stubborn thigh
and butt fat.

1- Active Recovery

Active recovery is a strategy we implement in between
sets to achieve maximum hormonal advantage.

2- Manipulate rest periods

This is probably the most missed protocol of them all.

When you are following the BBSU circuit Protocols, there
will be no standing around checking your face book page
in between exercise of sets, it will only be strategic rest
period ranging from 15, 30, 45 and sometimes 90 seconds

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

When it comes to releasing hormones, rest periods play a
much bigger part than most people think

3- Exercise Selection

Here is a 2 for 1, by choosing the best types of exercise,
you will be generating the best bang for buck possible.

Full body movements are perfect for eliciting testosterone,
and example exercise could be a MAN MAKER

This particular exercise involves multiple exercises in one.

Ie: you start in a standing position holding 2 d/b you
proceed to the floor and continue to do a d/b row on each
arm, you then stand back up to your starting position and
then do a d/b squat then continuing into a should press,
that’s 1 rep…


No problems, because in the coming days, we will be
opening the doors to our Brand new workout System, the
BBSU Circuit protocols, and the luck thing for you is…

All Rights Reserved Fit International PTY 2012

You don’t need to worry about all
the science involved when it comes
to these protocols:

Exercise selection
Training Cycles
High carbs/ low carbs
High fat/ low fat
-Physical Stress
-Emotional Stress
-Chemical Stress
-Electromagnetic Stress
-digestive stress
To much sleep or lack of sleep
Food production
Compound vs isolation movements
Training Age

Because we have got you covered.
