know thyself

“TAILOR YOUR TRAINING FREQUENCIES AROUND HOW YOUR BODY RESPONDS AND ADAPTS, EVEN IF IT SOUNDS CRAZY TO OTHERS.” Training splits nowadays seem to be assembled with all the forethought of activists who want to use outlandish tactics to overthrow a country. It is all sturm und drang as they blow everything to bits in a mad rush to fly their flag triumphantly on the nearest hilltop. And then what? Lifters are often consumed by the same kind of passion, if I can use the analogy. We quickly jot down the latest and greatest and head into the nearest gym to smash the weights. Splits are everywhere you look, stockpiled like firewood before the onslaught of winter. One on top of the other. If one sucks we’ll just try another. As creatures of habit we…

I’ve just written a piece in our other men’s magazine, Fitness (His Edition) that was dedicated to the incredible impact that the late Greg Plitt had on the bodybuilding and fitness world. I never usually mix my letters between mags, but I think that the message that I put out is really powerful. I therefore also wanted to share it with you here. There are some incredible lessons to be learned from the motivational videos that Greg gave us, and it’s something we can all benefit from. “You don’t burn out mentally, because you always burn out physically. In life, it isn’t the guy with the best genetics who wins or the guy with the most potential that wins, it’s the guy with the most perseverance that wins, the one who…

USN BCAA AMINO-GRO USN BCAA Amino-Gro is an intra-workout anabolic aid that contains the essential Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which make up approximately a third of skeletal muscle in the human body and also play an important role in protein synthesis. This refreshing product also contains glutamine, the most abundant amino acid found in the human body, which is arguably the most important in the process of building muscle. This combination enables active individuals to train harder for longer while speeding up recovery. SCITEC NUTRITION BEEF AMINOS In the manufacture of beef-derived protein, proteins are normally enzymatically cut up to obtain bioavailable peptides. Not so with Scitec Nutrition’s Beef Aminos.

“Acidic blood causes damage to the vascular system that can lead to an embolism in the brain or other organs. To prevent this the body produces cholesterol that acts like a patch or band-aid to protect the damaged areas until they can be repaired.” ACID-ALKALINE BALANCE Q I’ve heard that high acid levels in the body actually makes you hold on to fat as the fat lines the arteries to prevent it from being burnt. Is that true and what supplement can be taken to restore natural pH balance? Will a supplement like Manna pH Balance help? Lionel That is absolutely not true. It is true, however, that the body uses cholesterol to "patch" damaged veins and arteries. Cholesterol is produced in response to the damage being done to the inside of the…
