While whey protein is still king of the protein powder marketplace, plant-based protein powders are gaining market share. So what’s fueling the rise of plant-based protein powders?...
Health Benefits: Like whey protein powder, plant/vegan protein powders provide easily digestible amino acids to support cellular and tissue repair. This physiological phenomenon is essential for gaining and maintaining muscle size and strength, and for supporting recovery and repair. In addition to its anabolic (muscle building) and anti-catabolic (anti-muscle wasting) effects, the amino acids found in protein powders play a central role in immune system support.Read More
Whey Protein is great, but you knew that already...
What you may not be aware of is how protein science has become crystal clear - a combination of fast and slow digesting proteins is superior to just using fast digesting protein(Whey)alone...
The simple reason is Whey stimulates protein synthesis (the "fast" part) while Casein decreases the breakdown of muscle tissue (the "slow" part) for an amazing 1-2 punch...
It used to be common theory that combing slow releasing proteins like Casein with fast releasing proteins like Whey would slow the release of Whey protein...Read More
You’ve been thinking about starting a prohormone cycle. You want to make lean muscle gains,
or maybe you’re aiming for maximum fat loss. Yet, you have no idea where to start, or even if it’s
a good idea at all? This is what goes through the minds of many guys when they look in to beginning a
cycle. There can be a lot of information to take in, and most of the time planning a pro-hormone cycle
can be so complicated that it puts the beginner off.
Though I have never served in the military myself, I have always had the utmost respect for the fine men and women that bravely serve the United States of America. With an uncle and aunt that served in WWII in Europe and the Pacific in the Army and Marine Corps, a father and wife who both belonged to the Army National Guard, and older brothers that are veterans of the US Army and Navy, let’s just say I am somewhat familiar with our armed forces. And as someone that makes his living helping people reach their physique goals, I thought it was high time that I geared some advice toward our soldiers.Read More
This article will be dedicated to the detrimental effects of binge drinking AKA going out and getting drunk. In today’s society, almost everyone drinks and they often drink too much. There are many reasons people drink, including trying to fit in. Don’t be a follower, be a leader. If you want to achieve huge muscles and ripped abs, I guarantee vodka, rum, beer, etc. is not the way to do it. If you want to work out through the week and get drunk on the weekends and end up looking like a joke, that’s up to you. If you eat and drink like everyone else, you will look like everyone else. To get your dream physique, you have to dedicate every breath in your body, and this means excluding alcohol. After reading this article, there is no doubt you will be motivated to change. The facts: alcohol decreases protein synthesis and increases fat storage. Let’s look at why.Read More
"I'm just getting started with lifting. What should I take?"
This is probably the most frequent question that any supplement retailer is asked. The first thing to consider is your age.
If you are 18 or younger you probably don’t need anything other than hard work and a lot of food. You need to consume quality calories and make sure that you get enough protein to feed your muscles. You will want to take in about 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight per day. This is not talking just about supplements. This is total protein intake per day. You need to know how much protein you are getting from your meals.Read More
Protein is one of the three major, or macro, nutrients. Unlike carbohydrates and fats (the other two types of macronutrents), proteins are comprised of nitrogen-containing groups called amino acids. There are about 20 different types of amino acids commonly found in foods. All of them are important for building and maintaining muscle, but 8 are vital. These are what's known as the Essential Amino Acids (EAAs). Contrary to what most athletes believe, there is no actual requirement for protein; the body simply has a requirement for the eight essentials.
