bigger, stronger biceps

Did you know that flexing your biceps will help build them?Building bigger stronger biceps is priority number one for many of us. But sticking to simple dumbbell curls won’t cut it. Your body quickly adapts to what you force it to do, so for your biceps to grow you’ve got to work them beyond their comfort zone — you’ve got to shock them.Biceps (yes, it’s always plural) are composed of a long and a short head, both of which handle moves such as flexing and curling, pushing and pulling.The biceps are the most favored area of our bodies to show off.

sweet justice

As human beings, we’ve had the same amount of teeth in our mouth for thousands of years, yet in the past century, it seems that more and more people have gone from having just one sweet tooth to a whole mouthful of them! Unfortunately, as our love for sugar has gradually increased over the years, so have our waistlines, which has lead us to find new, low calorie, chemically based sugar alternatives.However, research is continuing to show us that these sweet poisons have an even worse fate for us than a spare tire around our waist or a mouth full of cavities. It appears that these sweeteners actually cause cancer.Aspartame unraveledChemically, aspartame is a combination of three substances: two amino acids, phenylalanine and aspartate; and methanol, otherwise known as wood…

the food business

Does your food come from the feedlot or the pasture? Do you even know? And why does it matter?Research spanning three decades supports the argument that grass-fed beef has a more desirable SFA lipid profile, is higher in conjugated linoleic acid isomers, and is higher in precursors for vitamin A and E and cancer-fighting antioxidants such as GT and SOD activity as compared to grain-fed contemporaries.What does that mean?Although grass-fed beef is a better choice, grain-feeding is common in feedlot operations. And there is more to the issue than just the grass versus grain issue. The other huge issue is the stress factor. Every hunter on the planet knows that a stressed animal tastes worse than a non-stressed animal.The same is true for animals in food operations. The stress level…
