Hi all. Just to let you know I am around but have been very preoccupied with understanding my Biosignature results and implementing the recommendations. When I have more of an understanding of where I am at I will share! Despite my current confusion I am very excited about the impact this will have on my lifitng performance and my bid for the World Titles.


What is BioSignature?

BioSignature goes beyond standard body fat testing and pinpoints your unique Biological signature through skinfold measurement.

The novel concept of Biosignature was developed by world-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin after noticing trends and correlations while working with athletes for nearly 30 years. Biosignature is based on his theory that where people store their body fat is an indication of their hormonal profile.

For example, the thickness of a person’s umbilical skin fold is a direct reflection of cortisol (the stress hormone) output. A relatively fat midsection indicates stress levels are high and/or the ability to handle stress is low. The good news is that 1) it’s not your fault and, 2) it can be changed.

Your body fat levels and corresponding imbalanced hormones can be improved and effectively managed through a combination of diet, exercise, a targeted supplementation program and lifestyle modifications. Biosignature certified and experienced assessors will develop that plan for you based on your unique biological signature.
Your personal Biosignature plan is aimed to positively affect:

Thyroid & Insulin
Androgens & Growth Hormones
Sleep & Energy Levels
Body Composition (amount of lean versus fat mass)
Overall health and well being!
