  • Beta Alanine Supplementation And Its Effectiveness

    In the health and fitness world we can be bombarded with all different sorts of supplementation that may claim to make us bigger, stronger, faster etc. All of this can make us a little frustrated when trying to decide what supplements we should take in hope of assisting us towards our various training and diet goals. Instead of trying to go through a whole range of different supplements and their effectiveness, l would like to just focus on a single supplement called beta- alanine and find out how effective it really is.
  • Benefits Of Creatine

    Whether we are just beginning or have trained for years, a lot of us will look for a supplement that can actually give us real results and not just a placebo effect. With so many supplements on the market today, it’s hard to decide which of them work or not. We could trial and error a whole range of supplements to find out for ourselves, but problems in doing so could be the cost factor and also may become time consuming trying to research what one to try next. One popular supplement, creatine, has had many claims of being a supplement that will give us positive physical results. To find out if these claims are true, let’s have a closer look at this supplement and what the research has to say.
  • Does pre/post workout protein aid in muscle gain?

    It has long been known that the body does not store protein, and excess protein is excreted, particularly while you sleep.
  • The Benefits of Cardio when Building Muscle

    If you want to build muscle, do you perform cardio? I know there are plenty of people out there who swear black and blue that cardio is definitely not going to assist in building muscle. In fact, many people would suggest that cardio will necessarily hamper muscle gain. I disagree.

    There is plenty of research out there to suggest that cardio, nutrition and resistance training can work together to symbiotically enhance the muscle building process. In fact, there are several specific advantages to cardio that are often overlooked. High intensity cardio can:

    • Enhance your weight lifting performance
    • Improve your fitness to further improve lifting performance
    • Boost your general health (this is an obvious benefit to building muscle)
    • Induce anabolic hormone secretion
    • Develop your mental strength and focus in the weights room

    And of course high intensity cardio has the added benefit of significant fat loss!

    But I don't want you to take my word for it. I recently published a comprehensive review of a number of studies on the benefits of cardio when building muscle, entitled "Cardio & Bodybuilding - Good for Muscle Growth?"

    This month, Australian IronMan (a leading Australian bodybuilding and fitness magazine) just published this article on pages 94-96. You can buy it at your local newsagent or alternatively read the online version of "Cardio is Not the Enemy"

    At the end of the day, if you want to obtain maximum results, you need a balance between all aspects of training. This includes cardio, nutrition, weight training and recovery.
