The Polynesian people are descended from those first seafarers who crossed the great waters and became the original inhabitants of the islands of the South Pacific Ocean. In order to survive those long voyages in the frigid oceans, their Polynesian bodies evolved to develop extreme muscle building capabilities as a means of generating and maintaining their body temperature.
This was a direct adaptation to an environmental factor. Those who could not adapt died, while the survivors carried with them genetic advantages, creating hybrid bodies of sorts, capable of enormous feats of physical labor, with very few calories, and very little water.
The colonization of the Pacific islands encouraged the Polynesian body to spread these genetic characteristics, as the first inhabitants of the islands hacked their homes out of the forests with their own hands. Domesticating wildlife and gardening was hard work, and the scarcity of fresh water led to the Polynesian body’s need to store fluids efficiently.
These early evolutionary patterns form the basis of the contemporary Polynesian body. Polynesian bodies enable:
1. Build muscle easily
2. She possesses the unique power of collective abilities
3. Withstand harsh environmental conditions more easily
4. Endure long periods with little food and water
Unfortunately, these adaptations also mean that Polynesian bodies will
1. Excess energy is more easily stored in the form of body fat
2. Store excess water under the skin
3. Burn calories at a slower and more gradual pace
Absent the intense physical exertion of our Polynesian ancestors, and the plentiful diet of Western cultures, it is not surprising that Polynesian bodies tended to gain unsightly body fat. This storage of excess energy was an adaptation to survive the lean days prevalent in island cultures, but completely absent in Western cultures.
Here are 3 of the best Polynesian body improvement tips
1. Exercise, choosing intense weight training over cardio.
Polynesian Bodies are designed to work at maximum intensity. Once or twice a week is enough. If you do weight training 5-6 days a week, I guarantee you can train twice as hard once or twice a week. Another way to look at it is: If you can weight train for 90 minutes, I assure you you can train harder for 40 minutes. Remember, you can train hard or you can train for a long time, but you can’t do both. Always choose to train hard. Intense training releases muscle-building hormones into the bloodstream. Jane Fonda’s workouts don’t. Polynesian physiques respond well to incredibly intense training regimens that are performed very often.
2. Don’t eat every day.
This may come as a shock to you, especially if you are a Polynesian, but it is true. You’ve probably heard that if you don’t eat every few hours, your body goes into starvation mode, yada, yada, yada. Whoever came up with this idea, do they get the rest of the day for such brilliance? It is simply not true. Polynesians were descended from a genetic lineage of humans that could survive for weeks without food or rest and little water.
Early man would track herds over vast stretches, on foot, and when they finally engaged their prey, they somehow managed to 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 for sure. Put a bunch of these first humans in the NFL and they’ll squash the snot out of those juice heads. We need to take advantage of this power, take advantage of the energy stored in the body.
The idea that you feel tired all the time, and that you need to eat constantly to maintain your energy levels is a fabrication of the feeble modern mind that prevents us from exploiting the immensity of our true human potential.
3. Eat real, natural, unprocessed carrot foods, and eat just enough to keep you full.
The Polynesian body can store more water, so drink plenty to discourage water retention.
Organic fruits, vegetables, seafood, coconut oil, and taro, along with chicken, pork, and beef are the mainstays of the Polynesian diet. These are foods that Polynesian bodies have adapted to efficiently ingest through hundreds of years of evolution. Polynesians should not consume processed foods. Canned and commercially packaged foods combined with Polynesian diets that are naturally high in fat create metabolic chaos in the Polynesian body. Gradually eliminate all processed and man-made foods.
Through the evolutionary process of natural selection, Polynesian bodies could become the ultimate muscle-building powerhouse, or an ugly storage system for excess energy and water weight. Polynesian bodies can build muscle more efficiently because they have slightly lower metabolisms, and they have a genetic tendency to store more water.
More than 70% of muscle is water. This is a great adaptation for gaining muscle mass, but a little harmful when the desire is to burn body fat, and to clean the water under the skin. Polynesian bodies also have a unique hormonal environment that allows for more effective muscle gain. A gift to the contemporary Polynesian body from their ancestors who survived some of their most brutal sea endeavors.
To get close to genetic potential, a Polynesian bodybuilder must train very intensely, often, control his caloric intake and manage his water properly.
