Paul Burke Presents "The Twelve Steps of 'Burke's Law'"

Share Article

When Paul Burke wrote "Burke's Law," he had a list of the major points that he wanted to embellish upon to make a complete manual and guide for weight training and fitness training for all men, especially those over 40 years old. Of these important topics were what Burke called "The Twelve Steps." The Twelve steps are a way that men over 40 can recover from using the "Old Paradigm," and begin anew. They are the pillars and foundation from which Burke's Law was built.

My intention is to keep educating people about the wonders, marvels and miracles of the human body. If I had but a sentence or two to sum it all up, I think I would put it something like this: You have but one life, one body, one mind and one spirit; the more you create for others, the stronger your spirit grows. The stronger your mind and spirit, the longer your body will go.

“To understand Training the “Burke’s Law” way, put yourself inside of this and you will feel the meaning: Imagine all of the energy that is harnessed as atomic molecules are compressed so densely, that the reaction to this, is a devastating explosion with nuclear fury.”

Spencer, MA (PRWEB) July 10, 2006 -- Paul Burke: The Author of the groundbreaking, critically acclaimed fitness book, “Burke’s Law,” A New Fitness Paradigm for the Mature Male, says that “recovering from the Old Paradigm takes lots of hard work and dedication.” His “Twelve Steps of Burke’s Law” is designed to help you recover from your old way of training, dieting and thinking, and bring you into the place where your mind, body and spirit all unite to find the unique physical strength and value that every man possesses.

These twelve steps are not written in the book as a list; rather, the book was written by using the Twelve Steps that he constructed as a guide to ensure that all the key points that Burke wanted to make were made within the two covers of his great book. In this short Press Release there will be a few of the Twelve Steps spoken of here and there. To read them all and discover what Burke’s Law is about in the compressed way, go to: Paulburkefitness.com/twelvesteps.htm (or: Paulburkefitness.com and click on: The Twelve Steps)

In the book, within every section, every chapter, even every sentence there is a reference to the Twelve Steps but not directly. They are important for you to know because they are like putting "Burke’s Law" into a tiny time-capsule. If there were but twelve statements that I could make about the importance of beginning to train the Burke’s Law way as opposed to all of the other ways; these would be the statements. They are in essence the means to an end, both figuratively and metaphorically.

Burke, who believes that everyman over 40 should not only be working out for cardio-vascular health; but, each man should be training with weights in Burke’s intensity packed format (Burke’s Law). Burke says that aging men need to retain as much muscle as possible. Burke says that as we age, we lose muscle mass and that does many negative things to our bodies. First, once you reach about the age of 40, the body begins to lose hormonal communication and thus starts making less testosterone and less Growth Hormone; however to take Growth Hormone as the anti-aging solution is a big risk according to Burke: “It appears to me (and many great scientists working in this field) that it isn’t the amount of Growth Hormone that is missing, per se; rather, it is the individual cells that are not allowing penetration (caused by insulin resistance) and the breaking down of the communication network of cell to cell; cell to hypothalamus, and Hypothalamus to pituitary and so on down the line.”

“There is a later part of a male’s life," Burke adds, “where he goes into andropause (The male version of menopause) and this can be corrected by seeing a top-notch endocrinologist and have testosterone levels measured to see if one is in need of hormonal replacement therapy. All of these topics are explained in detail in my book. The real ideal situation is for aging men to retain as much muscle mass as is possible so that this Biological Marker of Aging can be held off for as long as possible.

Burke is not only uniquely qualified to speak to and teach middle-age men, but his appearance in the flesh is something that stops one in their tracks. “Many times I have to take out my driver’s license to prove that I am going on 51 years of age,” Burke says with a smile. “To me,” Burke continues, “there are two ages; you have a chronological age and you have a biological age.” “Now, sometimes they match and sometimes they go in the wrong direction,” he says shaking his head. “There is some part of this anti-aging idea that is totally genetic; however, most people have a great deal of control of how fast they age by eating correctly and exercising correctly -- it's that simple; yet, that complex.” “I can show you, Burke adds, “men who are aging very fast because they are training too often and/or too much, or worse; they are taking steroids and those little nuggets of temporary muscle-reward will age you inside faster than cigarettes and alcohol together.

"My intention is to keep educating people about the wonders, marvels and miracles of the human body. If I had but a sentence or two to sum it all up, I think I would put it something like this: You have but one life, one body, one mind and one spirit; the more you create for others, the stronger your spirit grows. The stronger your mind and spirit, the longer your body will go.”
