The incredibly successful total body transformation program, the Amazing 12, creates outstanding results. This is because it has a system that optimises exercise selection, progressive programming and nutrition. These three key areas of optimisation are tied together by focusing on five core components I will get into below.
Stay in the ‘no threat’ zone
Whilst most programs focus on ‘going to the max’ and muscular failure, this only leads to gradual central nervous system stress and eventual plateau or worse still, injury and / or emotional burn out. With the A12 system, you do not “go to the max” and get shut down by your own central nervous system (CNS). Instead, you use a level of effort that is comfortable for your body to stay in the ‘no threat’ zone.
Learn to communicate to your Central Nervous System
Your central nervous system (CNS) overseas and governs your bodies reaction to physical stress. If your training entails maximum efforts there will come a time when the stress is deemed excessive and the CNS will shut you down. A cramp, extreme fatigue or injury are all ways the body will react to repetitive high physical stress in order to stop you. It is a self defence method albeit an unpleasant surprise when you least want to experience it.
This type of traditional and all too common training is based on falsehoods. Maximum efforts does not always equal beneficial results. A younger, enthusiastic beginner exerciser may progress for a few months with this method, but thereafter, it is an incredibly risky behaviour to continue.
The Amazing 12 program ‘speaks to the CNS’ and uses the language of pain and comfort, threat and safety, effort and risk. We make sure the CNS always feels safe about your actions by remaining in your comfort zone, thus perpetuating the fastest and safest possible progress to take place.
Release your inner superpowers
Every single one of us has untapped strength and fitness within us.
Our CNS is the reason why we’ve all heard tales of spontaneous feats of superhuman strength. What is happening during these feats is your central nervous system is allowing the use of more motor units than it would under normal circumstances.
Normally, your CNS prohibits this because if it ever allowed you access to 100% strength, your muscles would actually break your bones. We’re all incredibly strong and the central nervous system has a trip switch that controls this access.
The A12 system never triggers this threat response in the first place, allowing fast and profound gains.
Mathematically hack the superhero system
With the A12 training system, you’ll begin training in a place of extreme comfort. Then we skilfully expand what is comfortable without ever going to a peak, without ever triggering a threat response from your CNS.
The A12s Ai manipulates the maths behind the program’s progression so that the weights used increase at a pace proportionate to your progress.
By using mathematical manipulation, your CNS consistently allows your comfort zone to expand, effortlessly pushing the peaks of strength and performance higher and higher.
Expand your comfort zone until it envelops your limits
Possibly the biggest misconception in physical training is that in order to make any significant progress in any given time period (let alone just 12 weeks) we must first ‘leave our comfort zone’. The irony is, once you fully understand how the body BEST makes progress, you quickly realise that the polar opposite is actually true. There exists a direct correlation between time spent training in relative comfort and the ultimate long term productivity of the program.
The magnitude of the gains you make are directly proportional to how well you can manipulate the maths to perpetuate numeric progress, NOT how difficult the training is.
Attention to detail and applying multiple 1 percenters to the Amazing 12 program takes it above and beyond the abilities of other transformation programs. I am very blessed to able to coach this program.
