What is Recomposer?
Recomposer is not so much a program as it is a tool for the trainer and client to be able to work towards recompositional and performance-based goals.
The tool allows for the tracking of as many measurable variables in nutrition and exercise as possible, so that the data may be utilised by the coach or trainer to adjust depending on the goals laid out.
By being able to track the calories, macronutrient ratios, food choices, skin folds, body weight, and training performance, more informed decisions can be made as to how to adjust a variable to create a given result.
Whether in contest prep mode, offseason building, or just trying to improve general composition, the Recomposer tool gives you the ability to know where your body is at physically, how it responds to certain stimulus (food and training) and how to adjust it.
What does it require?
An athlete’s mentality, plain and simple. Food is no longer something to chop and change based on what you “feel” like. To improve consistency and remove variables, food choices and amounts must remain constant for 7 days minimum. If you are changing from rice, to sweet potato, to bread as your carbohydrate choice throughout a given week, how do you know what foods created which changes (if there were any.)
Access to skinfold callipers and body weight scales (and someone that can use them accurately). Body composition measurements should be done once every 7 days if possible. The skinfold measurements utilised are the Jackson & Pollock 9 site (gender specific) measurements. That is; for males, mid-pectoral, mid-abdominal, and quadriceps, and for females, triceps, suprilliac and quadriceps.
Access to the internet, and the recomposer app (your coach will give you a username and password) This is for access to your nutrition and training programs. You will need to be updating the data from your training sessions so that your trainer can view your progress.
All we ask is that you follow our prescription with consistency so that we can measure the result and make intelligent adjustments for incredible results. If you change the foods you eat every day, it’s impossible to tell you what to change for a different result. It’s that simple.
