Welcome to our site

So if you've read the first part of my Progenex review than you'll know there is a second part. To give a quick re-cap of what I talked about was the protein is a high quality, maybe the highest grade hydro-whey you can buy on the market. The idea behind this product is to provide the fastest possible recovery by providing the fastest absorbing whey protein. So now you may be wondering if it is just a marketing ploy or if it is actually the real deal. I've had over a week with this stuff and I will give you my initial reactions + beach body.

Let me first start by recapping some of the flavoring I've gotten to know them quite well over the week. The chocolate is a bit weak for me, if you mix 2 packets (2 scoops) it has a stronger flavor that is much better, but one scoop on its own should not be mixed with much water. The Vanilla on the other hand which is called Tropical Vanilla is stronger. It has almost a pina colada type flavor to it which didn't sit well with me. So I can only recommend the chocolate flavor to people. If you don't mind a tropically vanilla type flavor than you will be good to go with that!

Now to the main part, the recovery aspect. Its been an intense week of lifting and it would seem to me that after starting taking progenex post workout than you will find out your in for a suprise. Who would think that a protein would be able to help so much, especially when using an isolate or blend of some kind. I noticed the next day I was not as sore and I also found out that I felt more refreshed in my next workout. Again you might be thinking I am being paid to say that or am a sponsor of progenex. I am in no way benefiting by lieing to my readers.

The main turn away of this product is the price. It is quite expensive you can find 10% discounts for this post workout protein. Never the less if you have some extra money and want to invest into something that will actually help than go for it. It will help you recover faster, nothing to the point that you will become some super athlete but it will help. It sure beats other "miracle" products that companies claim to be the next breakthrough. This product helps and it does a good job at it. Nothing signifigant but notiecable and its a good place to put some money towards.

No need to visit other websites when it is all compiled here!In my opinion, nothing completes a bodybuilder’s physique more than a set of thick, vein-bulging forearms, yet so many bodybuilders disregard their forearms and think of them as one of the smaller muscles, which is far from wrong. In my bodybuilding experience, I have met countless numbers of bodybuilders who use the excuse ‘My forearms work themselves while I’m working my other body parts’, and while this is partially true, it is still very inaccurate.

The added benefits of working your forearms as a separate muscle are definitely worth the pain of working them. Not only does working your forearms make them look way bigger and way more defined, they will also help increase your grip strength, which can help increase your overall strength dramatically. Many bodybuilders underestimate the amount of gains which can come as a result of working your forearms. For example, when I started working my forearms separately, and spent a full workout session on them, my grip strength increased so much that it helped my bench press improve by 25 pounds!

Now, as well as an increase in grip strength, working your forearms more will make them, and your whole body more aesthetically pleasing. Many bodybuilders have amazing upper body size and definition, but when your huge biceps and horse shoe triceps sit on top of weedy forearms, you are never going to make it far in the sport of bodybuilding. Want to win Mr Universe? Well you’re not going to get there without a good set of forearms. (Think Ronnie Coleman! His forearms should be what you aspire to have).

The best time to work your forearms is after you have just worked your biceps, as the 2 muscles pair up and go hand in hand. One tip is to not work your forearms the day before you work your back, as it will deplete your energy and will lower the effectiveness of your back workout. In terms of sets and reps, it is better to work your forearms for a small amount of time, but at a high intensity, that is of course if you’re looking for size and strength. If you are looking for a nice cut and lean definition, then a longer workout at lower intensity will work the best. In my opinion, 3 exercises is all that you need in order to maximise your forearm workout, but to keep your workout that short and sweet, you must hit it with maximum intensity. I am going to assume that you know of some forearm exercises, and let you know my routine which will definitely help you get them all important, vein-bulging forearms:

Reverse-grip bicep curl: 20 repetitions.

Barbell wrist curl: 20 repetitions

 Reverse-grip barbell wrist curl: 20 repetitions

Complete the whole 60 repetitions, and then start again with a slightly lower weight. The amount of weight to use for the first set is dependent on you, but you should aim to use a weight that you can just squeeze out 20 repetitions with.

Follow this small routine once or twice a week, and I can guarantee that you will wish you had took notice of your forearms from the day you began body building. Powerful forearms will without a doubt help you progress in your bodybuilding ventures, whether you are doing it for fun or you are competing. Respect the forearms!

Supplement NeuroCore Review!

Before I begin let me give you a little preface. About one and a half months ago I read Neurocore and what its ingredients were. I actually wrote an article on the older HitTheRack website basically stating that MuscleTech went down hill and is not taken seriously anymore. (In the transition to the new website it was deleted) The article went on about how Neurocore was an extremely well formulated product and could this possibly be the return of MuscleTech? (Personally I must admit I wasn’t a fan of MuscleTech)

Well about 1 week ago I got a message from Muscletech saying they wanted me to sample the new Neruocore no strings attached. So I said I’d love to and yesterday it arrived in the mail. I received it (let me say it was the nicest looking sample I’ve ever received haha). So today I decided that it would be the day to test this new pre-workout out. No better day to try it than legs day (my toughest workout day). So I popped the entire 3 servings (which they say only after you assess your tolerance, but eh) into a glass of water and here was my experience: 

Taste: (10/10): The taste was fruit punch, and it was flavored perfectly. It was smooth without any bite or over sweetness to it. It was just a great tasting fruit punch, by far the best I’ve come across. On top of that it was easy on the way down, and I took it on a empty stomach and once it was down I completely forgot about it (unlike some which seem to always try and work there way back up….)

Energy: (10/10): Wow….simply wow, I felt like a god in the gym, legs day is the day that drains me the most but not today I could go on and on. I wanted to do more body parts than just legs. It was an extremely clean energy wasn’t over the top or jittery but it was an underlying powerful force that never let me give up. It let me push beyond the normal barriers than some!

(Bodybuilding)

Pump (8/10): Good pump, not the best I’ve ever had, but it was there and noticeable. My veins came out even in my arms which I wasnt working but I’ve had better pumps with nitrates, so this doesnt get the perfect score in the category. 

Focus: (10/10): If there was another aspect of this product besides the unbelivably smooth and clean energy it provides it would be the focus. I was dead set on lifting to the beat of my music. Nothing seemed to distract me not even the extremely hot girl on the treadmill (alright maybe a little) but I couldn’t and didn’t want to not focus on my muscle and the weights. Even when I got home I was still focused on what I was doing!

(Weight Lifting)

Strength: (8/10): With the energy and focus factor I must say strength seemed to improve, but it is hard to tell especially when you only have one sample to go off of. 

Side-Effects: (9/10): No stomach issues to speak of….no crash (at least 5 hours later when I’m writing this), no jitters or anxiety, the focusing aspect is still lingering which is good and bad (thats why I gave it a 9)

Overall: (9.5/10) I must say this product is amazing, it is hands down one of the best if not the best pre-workout I’ve ever tried. It gives amazing energy, undeniable focus, great pumps, and tastes great. I can’t wait to pick up a full tub of this stuff and give it a go for a few weeks!

I must say MuscleTech you did your research, you’ve even managed to redeem your self in my eyes! I plan on picking this product up very soon. All the forums “bros” who constantly hate…well I don’t see how its at all possible to hate on this product. It is great at what it does, the label being fully disclosed seals the deal for me. I can’t think of a single reason the ditch this product or you guys now! Please don’t sway away from your current path. Keep making products like this and you might have the entire BB community back with you!  

Please let me know of any future products you may send samples out for, great job MT and I just want to say thank you for the free sample you sent me!

Bodybuilding Weight Loss

Today, obesity has taken the world by storm. Ironically, obesity rates are on the surge like never before. Recent reports have unveiled the fact that nearly 20% of American adolescents and children are obese. The global figures on obesity are equally depressing. It’s a well known fact that the effects of obesity can lead to premature death because it gives rise to several life threatening ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disorder etc. The worst thing about obesity is that it doesn’t vanish on its own, and it requires immediate measures to prevent the rise of health complications that can potentially be a part of your life forever. (Bodybuilding)

There are scores of people out there who are literally spending a fortune to get rid of this ailment. Liposuction and other weight loss treatments have skyrocketed over the years. Trickling market reports suggest that obesity grabs the sixth spot in the list of world’s most troublesome ailments. Despite endless educational measures adopted by the government, the obesity epidemic doesn’t seem to slow down. Chances are that you might be throwing an arm and a leg as well to get rid of the excess baggage from your body. Like most people out there, you might have laid down your weapons after experiencing slow results or due to lack of motivation. Interestingly, it has been observed that most people give up too early and curse their fate for all the bad things happening in their lives. (Bodybuilder)

Hoping that things would fall in place on its own is perhaps the biggest mistake one can commit over here because obesity won’t vanish from your life on its won, unless you work hard and long enough. If you have spent more money on weight loss treatments than anything else, you would be glad to learn that you won’t have to spend a penny more on weight loss programs. Not many people out there are aware of the fact that water is an effective weight loss tool as well. Did I get your eyeballs rolling? For so many years you have been drinking water without realizing that water is the magical solution that you have been looking for to combat excess weight. Without any further delay, let me provide you with some solid reasons that will justify how water can help you get rid of obesity. (bodybuilding)

It’s a well documented fact that supplying our body with sufficient water in regular intervals reduces hunger pangs. Individuals who drink lots of water usually eat less food. After all, we all have a tendency to get confused over hunger and thirst. As a result, we often resort to overeating. Experts reckon that obese individuals should consume a glass of water before dinner and lunch to avoid overeating. Overall, an obese individual is advised to drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day. Considering all the above mentioned factors, it won’t be an understatement to claim that water is the safest solution to curb one’s appetite for food without being bothered about nasty side effects. (bodybuilders)

Market reports suggest that water also plays a great role in getting rid of toxic substances from our body. A person who consumes sufficient amount of water generally stays hydrated. On other hand, lack of water consumption leads of dehydration. A dehydrated person finds it difficult to burn calories. Studies suggest that individuals looking to lose weight should consider cold water instead of warm water because cold water is easily absorbed by our body. Also, our body temperature shoots up when we intake cold water. As a result, we burn more calories. (bodybuilding)

For those who don’t know, water is free from calories. On the other hand, if you consider any other liquid solution it will contain some amount of calories. Since loss of calories implies loss of weight, you can’t really go wrong with water consumption. Remember, the key is to have sufficient amount of water in regular intervals to shed the extra pounds from your body. If all your weight loss attempts have failed so far, you might be wondering if sufficient water intake was the missing factor in your life or not. (bodybuilding)

Bodybuilding Smoothies

Amazing what bodybuilder need!

Morning Shake:
What your going to need.

4 Large Frozen Strawberries
½ Banana (pref. Frozen, but unfrozen works) 
½ Cup of Oatmeal 
Orange Juice
Light & Fit 80 Calorie Yogurt
Protein Powder (Vanilla or Straw or Banana is preferable)

In a blender add the strawberries, banana, yogurt, and orange juice (just enough to cover the ingredients). Blend nice and smooth, now add in oatmeal and turn up to make sure it pulverizes it (so you don’t taste bits of oatmeal). Now add protein depending on how thick you would like it blend for a short or long amount of time. Bodybuilders Enjoy!

Post-Workout Shake: (bodybuilders)

What you will need:
Milk
2 tbps Honey
Ice
Half Banana 
Favorite Protein Powder (Mine is Xtreme Formulations 2.0 Cinnamon Roll)

In a blender add ice, banana, and milk. Blend (depending on thickness add more or less milk) while blending add in honey. Lastly again depending on thickness add in your favorite protein powder and bend for a short or long time to get thickness down.

Cutter’s Shake (bodybuilding)

What you will need:

Ice
Water
Half Banana 
Favorite Protein Powder (Mine is Xtreme Formulations 2.0 Cinnamon Roll)

In a blender add water, ice, banana (enough water to cover the top of ice). Blend until smooth than add in protein powder.

You may wonder why banana is included in almost everything. Not only does it add a decent sweet taste but with water in the cutters shake it acts as a binding agent to the ice. If you don’t put the banana in than the ice almost clumps up and it is never smooth, rather unpleasant. 

Enjoy bodybuilders!
