Product Details


Unlock Your Muscle Gene revives the primal connection to why we train. Ori Hofmekler exposes the missing links of exercise and physical exertion that will rewire your body to achieve the genetic strength potential of your pre-historic ancestors. Combined with the tenets of nutrition originally detailed in The Warrior Diet, these methods will produce a physical metamorphosis that will bring about greater strength, vitality, and longevity. [This book] will forever change the landscape of physical culture, fitness, and nutrition and is sure to influence all that comes after it.”
—Carl Lanore, host of the internationally syndicated radio show Super Human Radio
“I can say without hesitation that Ori Hofmekler is consistently the most provocative, interesting, and challenging writer currently active in the fitness game. His latest venture has a spectacular multidimensional premise: hold back the hands of time through a specific combination of diet and exercise. And that’s just one dimension of this tome of transformation. On another level, the book presents a revolutionary approach that explodes orthodox bodybuilding-based resistance training and replaces it with an amazing resistance/endurance/long-strength/mitochondria-building program that is totally original. On yet another level, his dietary approach combines intermittent fasting with highly specific food selections that results in detoxification and estrogen management; it all combines to leave even us jaded, seen-it-all old pros shaking our heads in bemused wonderment. Hofmekler’s methods and ideas ram past holes in all the ‘smelly little [fitness] orthodoxies’ that George Orwell warned us about. This book is a needed gale of frigid mountain air whipping through a cigarette-smoke-filled room. It gets my highest recommendation.”
—Marty Gallagher, national and world champion team coach and former columnist for the Washington Post
“A practical, efficient, scientifically sound understanding of how to unlock your physical potential. Read this book!”
—Justin Mager, MD, internist, exercise physiologist, and health strategist 

“Ori Hofmekler is one of the great thinkers in natural medicine. He is constantly reviewing the new health truths that scientists regularly uncover. He is then able to translate these powerful research findings into simple and practical recommendations that can have a significant impact on not only improving athletic performance, but on health and longevity as well.”
—Joseph Mercola, DO, founder of, the world’s most visited natural health website

Author Ori Hofmekler clearly knows what he is talking about and does a great job in this book of simplifying what is, in truth, a complex arrangement of interactive factors that sustain biological vitality and fitness. Intuitively and rationally his breakdown of how muscle-building mechanisms, including what and when we eat, how we exercise, chemical interactions, circadian cycles and nutritional protocol make sense.”
