Burning Your Workouts into a Fun Game

Intra-Workout Supplementation

Everyone is so busy focusing on pre and post workout supplementation that many neglect what they put in their body while the hard work is being done. I am a firm believer in the premise that Intra-Workout Supplementation is equally important as pre and post.

I will start by stating that water and/or Gatorade simply is NOT enough for someone who trains at an advanced level. Therefore, I have created an Intra-Workout Supplementation protocol that I believe works extremely well.

The Top 3 Most Misunderstood and Over Used “Health Foods” in America

Soy has an inherint ability to strip the body of minerals. It can lead to thyroid dysfunction, hormone disturbances, cardiovascular problems. But the food ol’ USA keeps pumping it out into over 6000 packaged foods and even promoting that it is good for you.
