An integrated and personalized approach to health, nutrition, training, recovery, and mindset There is a new revolution happening in sports as more and more athletes are basing their success on this game-changing combination: health, nutrition, training, recovery, and mindset. Unfortunately, the evidence-based techniques that the expert PhDs, academic institutions, and professional performance staffs follow can be in stark contrast to what many athletes actually practice. When combined with the noise of social media, old-school traditions, and bro-science, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Peak is a groundbreaking book exploring the fundamentals of high performance (not the fads), the importance of consistency (not extreme effort), and the value of patience (not rapid transformation). Dr. Marc Bubbs makes deep science easy to understand, and with information from leading experts who are influencing the top performers in sports on how to achieve world-class success, he lays out the record-breaking feats of athleticism and strategies that are rooted in this personalized approach. Dr. Bubbs's performance protocol is for the elite athlete, active individual, strength coach, nutritionist, or practitioner who wants to expand their potential by: Connecting the importance of sleep, digestion, the athlete microbiome, and blood glucose control metrics Creating personalized deep nutrition strategies for building muscle, burning fat, or "making weight" for competition Rethinking nutrition specifically for team sports Learning how elite endurance athletes fuel, including training techniques to boost performance Applying the new science of recovery that enhances performance Emphasizing the tremendous role of emotional intelligence and mindset in overcoming roadblocks and achieving athletic success (the next frontier in performance) Analyzing the qualities of elite leaders and how to develop them authentically Dr. Bubbs expertly brings together the worlds of health, nutrition, and exercise and synthesizes the salient science into actionable guidance. Regardless if you're trying to improve your physique, propel your endurance, or improve your team's record, looking at performance through this lens is absolutely critical for lasting success.

"Peak pushes the envelope. If you want to better understand the numerous ways you can positively impact your athletes, this is a must-read!"--Mike Robertson, MS, CSCS, co-owner, IFAST, named one of America's 10 Best Gyms by Men's Health Magazine "This book really resonated with me as it is in alignment with all things terrain-centric and comes from a deep core of naturopathic philosophy and sound science. I am amazed it has taken this long to bring together a whole package for optimal fitness! Dr. Bubbs has done a monumental job in this well-written, easy to follow, inspirational book that speaks to both the aspiring and elite athlete. I live in a part of the country that is a hub for world-class athletes, and I often find them to be among the sickest of my patients thanks to years of overtraining, improper nutritional advice, addictive tendencies, and dysregulated natural rhythms. Peak outlines the best in sound nutrition, optimizing performance with powerful biohacks, inspiring us to get in motion again, and creating balance in our wildly out of balance bodies."--Nasha Winters, ND, author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer "Peak is essential reading if you're looking to maximize human performance--a phenomenal educational resource!"--Kyle Sammons, CSCS, Coordinator of Sports Science, University of Washington Football "An accomplished contributor to the field of sport performance in his own right, Dr. Bubbs possesses a unique ability to ask relevant questions and identify practitioners and researchers generating the most current and effective solutions pertaining to athlete readiness. Dr. Bubbs is a connector, and Peak is an incredibly comprehensive resource that addresses many of the variables that influence performance--conveniently in one place."--Dr. Doug Kechijian, DPT, performance coach; US Air Force Outstanding Airmen of the Year "In today's world of human performance, it is becoming harder and harder to blaze new trails. However one of those trails is the model of common language and consistent service from a multitude of specialists, as highlighted by Dr. Bubbs in his new book Peak. With this model of teamwork, we can expect the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Peak should yield excitement to achieve greater success with your own systems and methods."--Dr. Charlie Weingroff, DPT, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Canadian men's national basketball team; member, Nike Executive Council; consultant to professional athletes "Peak is a highly informative, interesting, useful, and all-encompassing performance enhancement book I wish I had when I started coaching."--Jorge Carvajal, strength and conditioning coach for NFL players, elite military personnel, and big wave surfers "Peak is a masterpiece of nutritional science from one of the world's leading authorities on athletic health and performance. It's a fantastic resource that provides a road map to reaching true wellness."--Dr. Rocco Monto, orthopedic surgeon; physician, Team USA; author of The Fountain "In Peak, Dr. Marc Bubbs has produced one of the most comprehensive and practical resources on human performance, nutrition, and recovery available in print form. Whether you are the performance director of a professional sports team, a coach of a youth sports club, or an individual looking to improve your overall health and wellness, Peak will provide you a road map for enhancing your overall probability of success. This well-researched and clearly presented book should be in the libraries of anyone who is guiding the development of athletes and fitness enthusiasts."--Derek Hansen, international performance consultant, NFL, NBA, MLS, NCAA "Dr. Bubbs is an amazingly knowledgeable health professional who is able to translate highbrow science into practical, applicable gems that athletes and sports nutrition practitioners can use to fuel body and mind for peak performance.
