    I wasn't the intended audience for this book but it still had a lot of useful information I learned a lot about health and fitness and how to properly train I especially appreciated the chapters on mental health emotional intelligence and self compassion I didn't expect a book about achieving optimal physical performance to spend so much time talking about the mental and emotional strength reuired for success anyone in any coaching or elite training program should definitely read this book It isn't really written for the layperson who is interesting in improving their time spent in the gym but that doesn't mean they won't have a take away from this book There were times I zoned out and skimmed but there was still so much relevant information to digest that I think this book earned 4 stars and recommendations to anyone really interested in sports and performance

    As a Certified Holistic Nutritionist reading this I appreciated the blend of a holistic approach with science based evidence The book was described as a resource for coaches and athletes but I personally feel most coaches and athletes who don’t already have a fundamental understanding of nutrition will have a hard time reading this The first few chapters were uite technical and I had a hard time getting into it I found a lot of info was repeated throughout the book in chapter after chapter and while the info certainly was relevant to the chapter I don’t think it needed to be repeated in each chapter it was relevant to Overall a fantastic read and I am happy to be part of this industry with the direction its heading

    I just truly enjoy health and fitness books because they mostly feel so wholesome including this one Took off one star because at times it was too chemistry y for me but I am sure even that aspect will be useful for coaches and professional athletes All the same a great compilation

    Not fun to read highly technical discordant writing without citing sources Written by men for men; only cites male althletes and male dominated sports Not worth finishing

    Catchy title right just rolls right off the tongue But in all seriousness this is a book that doesn’t mess around when it comes to sports nutrition and the science behind it But before we dive into the book itself let me just give a bit of backstory as to why this was chosen I’m currently trying to encourage my boyfriend to read and so let him choose the next book in the self development category that we could read and discuss together like a mini book club We’ve almost completed the Insanity workout series on our ninth and final week and because of this it’s made us look closely at our diet and how we can optimise it in order to get the best results This led my boyfriend to choose this book as he felt it would give us a good insight into the science behind nutritional supplements diets etcPeak is definitely focused at a coachpractitioner level so there were parts of the book that went a bit over my head it gets very sciency in places but there’s also a lot there that you can interpret and use to fit in with your own fitness goals and we’ve taken a lot from it that has now been implemented into our lives such as upping our protein intake in order to help us build lean muscle mass and making sure we optimise our recovery in order to get the best performance when we need itIt covers uite a lot there are sections dedicated to performance nutrition mindfulness leadership recovery etc so you do get a holistic view of the science behind attaining peak performance If you have a baseline knowledge of sciencenutrition already then you’ll probably do well to read this book and develop your understanding further For those just starting out on a nutritionfitness journey I would maybe build up to this book and read something slightly less intense first

    So i gave this book 5 stars for a single reason this is what i like to do this is about sport and nothing else this is mostly for athletes probably better for high level athletes which im not but still also this book is probably the best for team sport athletes and coaches and Although im a strength „athlete“ i found this very interesting he is citing the best researchers in the strength sport fields so i kind of think that he is doing the same in the other fieldsi also line the way he talks about nutrition this is my field of study in university and this is one of the very rare books that doesn’t just get it wrong in the nutrition field most people are very biased and ignore the research or just kinda cherry pickBut i habe to say this book is kind of boring it talkes a lot about very very complex stuff like different bio markersIf somebody who is not interested in that sort of stuff or does not have any prior knowledge of it you will feel overwhelmed and wont understand a lot the book would probably still have a lot of good points like prioritising sleep ahead of other recovery modalities talking about good nutritionAll in all it’s basically a book on how to be the best athletes and it can be helpful to weekend warriors but im not sure if those people are the target audience even though the book gives a lot of insight for them too but it kinda feels line an add on sometimes

    Some would like to think that health and fitness are the same thing Unfortunately this is not true There are numerous cases of athletes who have performed at a high level during their careers at the cost of good health Dr Marc Bubb's book PEAK is the first technical book I have read that allowed the two ualities to coexist in the same chapter I do not know why this has taken so long Inside the pages of this book the latest training nutrition and recovery practices are shared for individual as well as team sports In particular I was most interested in carbohydrate periodization as an endurance training practice and team halftime nutrition for team sports While I do recommend this I will agree that it might be a bit technical for most readers

    Super impressed with the thoughtfulness that went into the planning and writing of this book HOnestly I didn't really know what to expect from Dr Bubbs who trained as a naturopath I have no clinical experience with naturopaths at all But this book is amazing not only for athletes but for anyone who wants to live life with as much vitality as possible It goes through the current scientific knowledge on the keystone foundations of sleep nutrition physical training recovery and brain health This is a great handbook for just living life

    Peak is a very interesting read with a number of topics that are useful for health and fitness practitioners to read and learn about However the book can be uite un engaging to read with large blocks of text and at times a very textbook feel to the content delivery For a learned professional this poses little issues but Peak may be difficult to read for the layman or non university educated reader Overall the content is of a good high uality but could benefit with better design and readability

    Anyone who works out daily or is competing I would put this as a reuired readThe author focuses on athletes and goes over studies relating to performance He hits a lot of topics such as the gut sleep and nutrition The most I took from this book is the diet aspect of working out and how important it is and how different we are person to person It inspired me to try vitamin and micro nutrient supplements This is a book I'll be revisiting
