Importance of a Recovery Drink

Tweet While in France, I got a chance to sit down and talk with Steve Edwards, a nutrition and fitness expert who has helped developed many of Beachbody’s top programs, including the new P90X2 coming out this Fall, and one of the topics we got on was the importance of a post workout recovery drink. Someone in the group asked Steve about what they could...

What is Kre-Alkalyn Creatine?

Tweet For the past few weeks I’ve been hearing quite a bit about a newer form of creatine out, one that I have never tried before, called creatine kre-alkalyn. Back when I was in college, I tried creatine monohydrate for the first time, and ended up gaining about 15 lbs in a few months, some of that muscle and some water weight, and was even doing sets of...

P90X Recovery Drink Review

Tweet If you’re a daily visitor to my site, you already know about the supplements that I use and recommend to others. If you’re not, then you will find those supplements in the “Q&A” section.

Supplements to Lose Weight

Tweet I often talk about the supplements to gain mass, but really don’t talk too much on supplements to lose weight, so I thought now would be a good time to do so. Most people are looking to lose weight anyway right? I just heard that 65% of Americans are either overweight or obese! WHOA! I think more people need to know the benefits of Beachbody Products...

P90X Protein Bars

Tweet When I was going through my first round of P90X, I had a full time job as a financial advisor, and would be absolutely starving an hour after I got into work in the morning. I needed something that was healthy and I could snack on, and would also give me some energy to get me through until lunch. That was when I decided to buy my first box of P90X Protein...

Glutamine Review

Tweet Glutamine Review For the past 5 years or so, I have been adding a teaspoon of glutamine powder to each of my protein shakes. The reason being is because I did my research and found out about all the positive effects of glutamine supplementation, especially if you’re looking to get cut, which has been my main goal. First of all, let me explain what...

Supplements I Use and Recommend!

Tweet Even though I already have this in the “Q&A” section of this site, I still seem to get this question every day! So, I figured I’d take a little bit of time to explain the supplements that I use while doing P90X. If I am your coach, you already know that I only recommend products that I have used and work/ed for me. Here are a list of...

P90X Recovery Drink Review

Tweet Most people don’t understand the importance of the proper nutrition post-workout, so they all-together skip it. Usually, they feel that post-workout supplements just add on to their calorie intake for the day, and feel that they will gain weight. I’m here to tell you that this thinking is far from the truth! It’s very important to get in...

Creatine Reviews

Tweet I have already done a few posts about creatine and what it can do for both athletic performance and strength, but I never went into detail about what I personally thought about the product. Creatine Reviews Like I mentioned in my whey protein review, I was weak coming out of high school and needed something to help me add on some weight and make me...

Whey Protein Review

Tweet I have been wanting to write a whey protein review for quite some time now. As you all know, I believe that whey protein is the most important supplement to take, and that’s why I recommend it to everyone that I coach. Now, I’m going to get into how I discovered whey and how it effected my performance. All through high school, I was the kid who...

Whey Protein

Tweet We have been hearing for years that we need to be taking whey protein because it is very beneficial when combining diet and exercise, but why? Well, in this entry I am going to explain what exactly whey protein is and how it works! Whey protein has a mixture of different proteins found in milk, like beta-lactoglobalin and alpha-lactalbumin. Huh? Yeah I...

Creatine: Part II

Tweet Ever since the first blog entry on creatine, I have had a TON of emails asking about specific details of creatine supplementation, and now I am going to address all your questions about loading vs. non-loading, cycling vs. non-cycling, and powders vs. pills and serums. First of all, I want to make sure you all completely understand the difference between...

Creatine

Tweet I decided to focus on explaining the benefits and downfalls of supplements for the next few days, and today I’m starting with Creatine. Creatine is a supplement that I used to take for about 3 years, back when I was playing college baseball. I needed something to give me that “boost” for increased performance during my workouts as well as...
