“Polynesian Bodies” – Why Polynesian Bodies Build Muscle Better

"Polynesian Bodies" – Why Polynesian Bodies Build Muscle Better

Polynesian people are descendants of those early mariners that crossed the great waters and became the original inhabitants of the South Pacific Islands. In order to survive those long cold oceanic journeys, their Polynesian bodies evolved to develop maximum muscle building capabilities as a means of generating and preserving body temperature.

This was a direct adaptation to an environmental factor. Those that could not adapt died, whereas the survivors carried with them genetic advantages, creating a hybrid body of sorts, capable of performing enormous feats of physical labor, on very little calories, and very little water.

Colonization of the Pacific Islands only encouraged the Polynesian body to propagate these gene characteristics, as the early Islanders literally hacked their homes out of the forests with their bare hands. Domesticating wildlife and horticulture, was a herculean feat, and the scarcity of fresh water developed a need for the Polynesian body to store fluids efficiently.

These early evolutionary patterns form the basis of the contemporary Polynesian body. It enables Polynesian bodies to:

1. Build muscle easily

2. Possess unique strength to mass capabilities

3. Withstand harsh environmental conditions more easily

4. Endure long periods with little food and little water

Unfortunately these adaptations also mean Polynesian bodies will

1. Store excess energy more easily in the form of body fat

2. Store excess water subcutaneously

3. Burn calories at a slower more gradual pace

In the absence of the extreme physical labors performed by our Polynesian ancestors, and the readily abundant food in western cultures, it is no surprise that Polynesian bodies have a tendency to gain unsightly body fat. This storage of excess energy was a survival adaptation for the days of leanness prevalent in the island cultures, but completely absent in western cultures.

Here are 3 of the best tips to improve a Polynesian Body

1. Exercise, choosing intense weight training over cardio.

Polynesian bodies are designed to work out with maximum intensity. Once or twice a week is sufficient. If you are weight training 5 – 6 days a week, I guarantee that you can train twice as hard once or twice a week. Another way of looking at it is this: If you can weight train for 90 min’s, I assure you, you can train harder for 40 min’s. Remember that you can train hard or you can train long, but you can’t do both. Always choose to train hard. Intense training triggers the release of muscle building hormones into the blood stream. Jane Fonda workouts do not. Polynesian bodies respond well to incredibly intense training regimes performed less often.

2. Don’t eat everyday.

This one may come as a shock to you, especially if you are Polynesian, but it is true. You may have heard that if you don’t eat every few hours then your body goes into starvation mode, yada, yada, yada. Who came up with this idea, did they get the rest of the day off for such brilliance? It is simply not true. Polynesian bodies have descended from a genetic strain of humans that could survive for weeks without food and rest and very little water.

Early man tracked herds over vast expanses, on foot, and when they finally engaged their prey they could somehow muster the strength and energy, in this depleted state, to run down and kill a beast more than ten times their size. I know one thing’s for sure. Put a bunch of these early hominids in the NFL and they would stomp the snot out of those juice heads. We need to tap into that power, and utilize the body’s stored energy.

The idea that you feel tired all the time, and that you need to eat constantly to maintain your energy levels are fabrications of the weak modern mind that prevent us from exploiting the vastness of our true human potential.

3. Eat real, natural, unprocessed foods indigenous to the islands, and eat just enough to be satisfied.

A Polynesian body can store more water, so drink plenty to discourage water retention.

Organic fruits, vegetables, seafood, coconut oil, taro, along with chicken, pork and beef are the mainstay of the Polynesian diet. These are the foods which Polynesian bodies have adapted to assimilate efficiently through hundreds of years of evolution. Polynesians should not consume processed foods. Canned foods and commercially packaged foods combined with the naturally high fat Polynesian diets create metabolic mayhem in the Polynesian body. Eliminate all processed and man made foods gradually.

Through the evolutionary process of natural selection, Polynesian bodies can become the ultimate muscle building powerhouse, or an unsightly storage system for excess energy and water weight. Polynesian bodies can build muscle more efficiently because they possess slightly lower metabolisms, and have a genetic propensity to store more water. Over 70% of muscle is water. This is a wonderful adaptation for gaining muscle mass, but slightly detrimental when the desire is to burn body fat, and flush subcutaneous water. Polynesian bodies also possess a unique hormonal environment that allows muscle gain to take place more effectively. A gift to the contemporary Polynesian body from their ancestors who survived some of the most brutal oceanic endeavors.

To approach genetic potential a Polynesian bodybuilder should train with extreme intensity, less often, control caloric intake and manage their water correctly.

Fish Oil Capsules Are an Essential Dietary Supplement

Fish Oil Capsules Are an Essential Dietary Supplement

Few people know it, but omega-3 is essential to the long-term health of your heart, brain and central nervous system. In fact, the overall health benefits of a regular intake of omega 3 are disturbing misunderstood by 99% of the world's population and are connected to a variety of modern health care concerns including heart disease, skin problems, reproductive difficulties, mental health, arthritis and dry skin.

There are important reasons for this. Modern food processing techniques continue to strip a vital group of essential oils – omega-3 fatty acids – out of our food. And, as our bodies can not manufacture or replace the nutrients ourselves, we are unknowingly creating an imbalance in our systems that can lead to a range of disorders. The simple truth is that few people realize that they need omega 3 in their diet. Let alone are eating the right foods to supply it.

Fortunately, even if you are not getting enough omega 3 in your diet, there is a simple solution. You can take fish oil capsules. These dietary supplements give you the essential omega-3 nutrients your body needs to produce eicosanoids, which help it absorb calcium and other essential trace elements. In fact, it is recommended that you take omega 3 supplements with your daily vitamin supplements to enhance their overall effectiveness.

What if you simply eat more fish? That will definitely help. But it can be both costly and impractical. You would need to eat at least five grams of fish at least four times a week to get the necessary nutritional benefits. But not just any fish either. Omega 3 is found in cold water fish like herring, tuna, mackerel and salmon so they are best ones to eat. Unfortunately, many of those very same fish are caught in waters contaminated by polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a mixture of chemicals banned in many countries that have a habit of leaching into the soil and water and entering the food chain. PCBs are taken up by small organisms and fish in water. They are also digested by other animals that eat these aquatic animals as food. PCBs then accumulate in fish and marine mammals, reaching levels that are thousands of times higher than just in water.

After extensive research, I believe that the only cold water fish that you can reply on is not to be affected by PCBs, mercury and other contaminants is the Hoki fish. This fish is plentiful in the fresh, clean waters of New Zealand and is the major ingredient in the fish oil that I take myself and give to my own family. It is important to remember that the fish capsules you take contain both DHA and EPA fatty acids. These two nutrients give your body the greatest benefits. The capsules should also contain purified fish oil, so look out for the term "pharmaceutical grade fish oil" just to be sure.

Fish oil capsules from New Zealand's Hoki fish are, in my opinion, the best choice because Hoki is naturally high in EPA and DHA omega 3 fatty acids and only swim in uncontaminated water. When you look into buying these supplements, make sure that the manufacturer gives you the information you needs about the fish oil's purity, how the fish oil capsules are made, their EPA and DHA content and what fish they use to extract the oil. If they do not use Hoki fish, then I recommended against buying it.

The best fish oil is tasteless and odorless and will not leave your burping a fishy aftertaste. This is important too because many people do not like taking fish oil supplements simply for this reason. Good fish oil from fish like the Hoki also provide you with the essential fatty acid nutrients EPA and DHA, which are easier for your body to absorb than omega 3 extracted from plants (ALA) in flaxseed oil. Your body needs to convert the ALA into EPA and DHA, which is a step that is not necessary when you take good capsules. If you would like more information of the fish oil capsules that will give you the best health benefits, take a look at my website.

Configure Exchange E-Mail Server Reverse DNS and MX Records Correctly

Configure Exchange E-Mail Server Reverse DNS and MX Records Correctly

If DNS is setup incorrectly, over time your mail server IP will be added to blacklists. Nowadays most E-Mail servers have some kind of spam protection service which in turn means that all your inbound mail will be blocked if you do happen to be listed on a spam blacklist.

In this article I will describe how to correctly configure your MX and reverse DNS records for your mail server. This article is based on an Exchange 2003/2007 server but every other messaging server will follow the same principle.

Assigning an IP address

Starting from the bottom up the first thing you need to do is assign a static external IP address to the internal private address of your mail server. You will need to apply these rules on your firewall to port forward SMTP (port 25) and NAT an external IP address to the internal address of the server.

Something that a lot of administrators forget to do or check is to set the outgoing NAT rule to use the same external IP address created for the inbound rule to the mail server. If this isn’t set, Reverse DNS will not match and in turn your mail server will be listed on blacklists. If your firewall rules are setup correctly the IP address listed on this page should be the same IP address you mapped to the internal private IP address of the mail server.

Create the MX records for your mail server

For the purpose of this example, listed below are all the details of my mail server to help you understand what you need to do.

External IP: 87.22.1.22

E-Mail Domain: domain.com

You will need to be an administrative contact for your External DNS provider for your domain to make these changes. In most cases this can be done through an online control panel through your DNS provider. Failing that on the phone or via E-Mail.

1. The first thing we need to do is create an A record to point to the external IP address mapped on your firewall to the mail server. The host A record can be called any thing but is commonly called “mail”. In our example we will create “mail.domain.com” to point to IP address “87.22.1.22”

2. Next we will create an MX record to point to the newly created A record of our mail server.

Within your DNS control panel select “add MX record”. Make sure that the host address is the root domain name in our case “domain.com”

Set the FQDN as the A record we just created which in our case is “mail.domain.com”.

The lowest property is the most preferred but in our example we will set the priority as 10.

Use NSlookup to check DNS and MX records are applied

It can take up to 48 hours for DNS to propagate but in most cases 12-24 hours. To check our DNS entries are applied and correct we can use nslookup.

1. Open a CMD prompt and type nslookup

2. Type set type=mx

3. Type the domain name which in our case is domain.com.

In our example the output should read as follows if correctly setup:

> domain.com

Non-authoritative answer:

domain.com MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.domain.com

mail.domain.com internet address = 87.22.1.22

Configure Reverse DNS

Reverse DNS is used to verify that the mail server is who it says it is. The recipients mail server will do a reverse lookup to make sure that the IP address of the mail A or host record in DNS is the same as the IP address it is communicating with. Only 1 RDNS entry can be present per IP address.

To do this you will need to contact your ISP to make this entry. You will not be able to do this in your DNS control panel unless your ISP also host your DNS and give you the functionality to add your own RDNS records.

In our case we would contact our ISP and advise that we would like to create an RDNS entry for our IP address 87.22.1.22 which would resolve too mail.domain.com.

Verify Reverse DNS

Again it can take up to 48 hours for DNS to propagate but in most cases 12-24 hours. To verify that the RDNS entries have been added and are correct do the following:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type Ping -a 87.22.1.22 (This is the external IP address for your mail server. In our case we use our external IP address stated above)

If RDNS is configured correctly the following output will be shown:

C:UsersUser>ping -a 87.22.1.22

Pinging mail.domain.com [87.22.1.22] with 32 bytes of data:

SMTP Banner

Every time a mail server establishes a connection with your mail server it shows its SMTP banner. This banner must be resolvable on the internet and best practice is to have it as your mail host/A record.

Configure SMTP banner Exchange 2003

1. Open Exchange system manager.

2. Expand your administrative group (“First administrative group” by default).

3. Expand Servers.

4. Expand YourServerName.

5. Expand Protocals container.

6. Select SMTP container.

7. On the right window, right click the Default SMTP virtual Server (Or the name you set your SMTP Server) and

select Properties.

8. Select the Delivery Tab.

9. Click the Advanced button.

10. Under the Fully-qualified domain name type mail.domain.com (The A/Host record you created in DNS for your mail server)

11. Click OK and OK again to accept the changes

Configure SMTP banner Exchange 2007/2010

1. Open the Exchange management console.

2. Select the Organisation Configuration container.

3. Select Hub Transport container.

4. On the right select the Send Connectors tab.

5. Right click your send connector and select properties.

6. On the General tab under the Set the FQDN this connector will… type the A record domain name you created. Which in our case is mail.domain.com. Click OK.

7. Under the Server Configuration container click the Hub Transport container.

8. In the Right window Select the properties of the Receive Connector under Receive Connectors tab.

9. On the General tab under the Set the FQDN this connector will… type the A record domain name you created. Which in our case is mail.domain.com. Click OK

To verify these changes we can use telnet to view the output upon establishing a connection on port 25 to our mail server. Use the following steps to do this:

1. Open a CMD prompt

2. Type Telnet mail.domain.com 25.

The output you see should look something like this and contain your A record of your mail server:

220 mail.domain.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Sun, 28 Feb 2

010 17:51:20 +0000

If you use an edge server or a SPAM filter appliance like a Barracuda the SMTP banner will have to be set on this device/server.

Check to see if your mail server is on spam lists and/or an open relay

A great website to use to check your MX records, RDNS, check if your mail server is an open relay and check to see if you are listed on spam lists is www.mxtoolbox.com. This is a great site and one to keep in your favourites.

Following these guide lines will successfully and correctly configure mail routing to and from your mail server. The next step is too secure and ensure your mail server is not an open relay. I will be writing a separate article dedicated to this in the near future.

Rashes From Chemicals – Understanding Skin Reactions

Rashes From Chemicals – Understanding Skin Reactions

Did you know that you may contract rashes from chemicals that you use on a daily basis? It is a frightening thought to consider, but these are a real concern for many people. Do you have sensitive skin? Do you have a family history of skin problems and allergies? Are you frequently around chemicals at work or in your home environment? If you think that you might answer yes to any of these considerations, you may have some answers to the causes of the eruptions.

The biggest concern when it comes to chemical burns and rashes is allergies. If you have ever experienced any seasonal allergies, and sometimes even if you have not, you may also suffer from allergies to chemicals that are used in common products such as cosmetics, perfumes, and even contact solutions. Many of these products contain a conservative called thimerosal, which has been known to set off allergic reactions that may manifest as a rash. The common pesticide known as deet, which is used in many popular insect repellants, can cause severe skin rashes, blisters or other skin irritations. Some people are very sensitive and can not be around certain fragrances without getting a respiratory reaction and skin inflammation.

If you find that you have been afflicted with skin rashes and you do not seek treatment, your rashes may turn into large blisters or patches. These blisters may break and cause skin to turn dark or leathery. If you have found that you are susceptible to any dermatitis problems from chemicals, how can you go about life without these problems? Fortunately, there are many hypoallergenic options on the market that are tested by dermatologists as well as health store items using natural oils and herbal products.

The best thing that you can do to treat your skin eruptions is to get it diagnosed properly. Make sure that you keep a diary of both foods you may not be able to tolerate as well as environmental triggers that can cause your skin to turn red and form bumps.
