What is a the bio hack challenge?

The bio hack is an 8 week challenge designed to improve your overall well being, fitness levels and health.

It's common knowledge that nutrition and fitness are important elements of a healthy lifestyle but there's a number of lesser known practices that can lead to accelerated resutls. That's what the bio hack is all about.

Day 15

Carb Meal. After completing two full weeks you will have a carb "refeed" this can be anything you like. Fruits, Ice cream, burgers, as long as it doesn't last a full day and is one meal or a meal + dessert you'll be fine.

 

Weeks 3 & 4

You will continue on the same regime as the first two weeks. With the difference being that you're allowed one carb "refeed" night per week. Just be careful to spread these out so allowing a few days minimum between them. Remember also, it's a meal not a day of binge eating.

 

Weeks 5 - 8

For the later part of the challenge we're going change a few things up.

1. Workout intensity: We're looking to increase this, either through a different type of HIIT. If you're currently running perhaps convert to rowing or the stationary bike. For weight training perhaps start super setting a combination of movements or if you're training with a Personal Trainer just ask them to bump things up a notch for the final weeks.

2. Introducing carbohydrates: On work out days we're going to start re introducing carbs. Not a lot but 40grams or so at a time. It can be before or after the workout and will ideally be in a natural unprocessed form. For an idea on what 40 grams of carbs looks like, it's roughly one medium sized banana.
