Summary

When your horse suddenly develops a performance problem or a bad attitude and neither seem to be remedied by new training techniques or medical care, you often face months—even years—of frustration and career limitation. Dr. Joyce Harman, veterinarian and respected saddle-fitting expert, states that 75 percent of horses with such issues are simply reacting to pain caused by ill-fitting saddles. And, as she explains in this thorough and highly illustrated book, poor saddle fit can be corrected with patience and know-how.

    Secret Tips to raise Testosterone naturally.   
    --Firstly...  
    I keep things simple - no B.S rubbish about doing LESS training and eating LESS and how there is some SECRET holding you back. How did the bodybuilders in the 60's and 70's look so great? Training frequency and nutrition. How and what - that's the only secret. But you've probably been doing some of the things right but not all - that's where this book can help you.   
      
    I focus on 3 simple cornerstones...  
      
    --Training Frequency  
    Don't worry you don't need to follow months of weird training routines - mine is two weeks - and repeat. An upper/lower week and a precision week. Muscles are shocked into growth. I lay out all the routines out simply and easily 'at-a-glance'.   
      
    --BodyFat   
    Through the intensity of the workouts and the nutritional plan we are going to reduce your body fat. Why? Your Testosterone is utilized at it's best when you have a lower body fat percentage.   
      
    --Nutrition  
    Nutrition is considered the most important part of building muscle and eating the correct Vegan Nutrition is vital. If the nutrition is incorrect then it doesn't matter how impeccable your training routines are, you will not progress. I'm sure you have an idea about nutrition, but I'm here to give your knowledge a little boast.  
      
    Finally 
    I also go into the tips for maximizing size including what supplements to use and when.   
      
    I also go into tips for maximizing training intensity - Supersets and TUT.   
    Imagine you in a 3 months time and people complimenting you on how you look?

    There are many exercise programs out there to choose from; however, choosing martial arts as that exercise venue is a big decision.  As in all sports, dedication and discipline are required in your chosen sport to become good.  In choosing the martial arts as your pursuit, that dedication and discipline is at a very high standard.  It becomes a lifetime devotion which is geared towards a code of honor, a creed to follow, and responsibility to carry your skills to a higher human level.  This book is not just about martial arts or about you making a survival choice regarding a self-defense endeavor; it is also about life and longevity as well as how to stay and maintain that state of physical well-being.  This maintenance or balance formulates the essence of Taijiquan the philosophical concept for both its defense training and its health benefits.  I hope in reading this book it will help you to choose wisely.
    
    What would happen if the masters of different martial arts academies join forces to devise one master form of martial arts?  This should include all the martial arts systems, styles, philosophies, and functionalities and to embrace the hidden secrets of their individual styles and formulate one master super self-defense universal system that is all incorporating and encompassing.  A structure in which entails the very essence of human survival.  This new system of martial arts would maintain the subsistence for the sacredness and protection of our evolutionary way.   This way is the continuation of the human-species.  Longevity depends on maintaining your survival skills and survival skills depend on maintaining your health.  It is all tied together and there is no separation of these factors.  This book is about that; to maintain and live a healthy and long life through the use of the martial arts format.  I called the union above The Yoda System.
