Ok James, you've got my attention, why the tease? One-month is a long ways away!
I've seen Poliquin mention such things before, but haven't been able to learn more.
So, let me see if I'm understanding you thus far (he doesn't post here does he?):
Places were you store more fat than others give you a picture of your hormone profile and determines the best training/nutrition style for you.
Adrenal: High adrenal sites (umbilical) means people will respond better to insulin management (low-carb paleo style), good sleep, recovery (they have poor recovery), and skill based/ME style workouts with little metcon (5-10 minutes or regular length but say only 1 times per week?). I take it that people who have high adrenal sites need to be slow about developing work capacity before hitting the hard metcons. This is related to the poor recovery of their catabolic selves.
Insulin: High insulin sites obviously means too much insulin secretion. So, we're looking at paleo eating, "pre- and post workout allotment of proper nutrients" (does that mean BCAA's pre, and high-carb/protein post to take advantage on non-insulin mediated glucose uptake?), and ME only workouts (why don't metcons work for insulin resistant individuals?). What does "daily energy patterns" mean?
Note: In the 8 on 12 off study
all the women who didn't respond to intervals were insulin resistant.
Androgen: High androgen sites (pecs/triceps) are the guys that build muscle easily. They respond best to ME, hypertrophy rep ranges, and short metcons (<5 min.).
GH and Estrogen: High GH (calves) and estrogen (thigh) sites both respond well to traditional crossfit/metcon training.
Question: do people with high GH and estrogen sites show themselves to be more carb-tolerant than adrenal/insulin people? Where does the androgen fit in?
