Get Pumped with GAT ADENOFLEX

Written by thebigphil. Posted in Articles, Bodybuilding, Men's Health, Supplements

Can GAT ADENOFLEX help you get the kind of pumps that you are looking for in the gym?

 

One of the main reasons people go to the gym is because they want to look better. Some want to lose weight, but others want to have bigger, more defined muscles. What guy wouldn’t mind looking a little more ripped? For some of us, after a good workout, we look in the mirror and see our muscles are bigger, more pronounced, and we are lookin’ good. But is there a way to help our muscles look bigger after a workout? The answer is yes.

There are several ways to look more buff and it depends on which parts of the muscles are voluminzing. In a nutshell, there are 3 cellular levels we can aim to keep swollen; the blood, muscle and plasma. What is often referred to as muscle pump (think, “I’m going to pump you up”), is how the muscles expand as they are filled with blood and lactic acid while you are working out. However, the muscle pump goes away as you quit working out. But, there is a way to retain your pumped up muscles after your work out; and further there are ways to increase how much you can pump up on each of the three cellular levels.

 

First is blood. The more blood you can get into your muscles, the bigger they’ll look. This can be done in several ways. Vasodilatation (vaso = blood vessels, dilatation = expansion) allows more blood to fill up your muscles. Both agmatine and NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine) are widely used by body builders to increase pump.

blood

Getting blood to the muscles is good, but there are ways to increase the volume in the blood itself. This is done through creatine. Creatine increases the amount of plasma in your blood. Blood is normally about half plasma; so if you get more blood to your muscle, then expand the plasma in the blood, you will see even lager muscles!

 

There are ways of swelling the muscle itself. Glycogen is needed to make muscles, which comes from glucose. These resources can get depleted. Chromium can be supplemented which helps the glucose intake into muscles cells.

 

ADENOFLEX by GAT contains high levels of each of these supplements. It was specially formulated to help to significantly increase your muscle pump as well as maintain your pump for longer. Further, it can increase strength and advance exercise-induced lean mass.

 

Importantly, the benefits of ADENOFLEX occur in single use but also in repeated use. If you are looking for a hardcore post-workout pump, go with GAT ADENOFLEX and stay pumped up.

Beverly Lean Out Review

Written by thebigphil. Posted in Articles, Bodybuilding, Nutrition, Supplements

A low carb diet is not easy to maintin, especially if you are someone who functions of off bread. If you are thinking about dieting and using a low carbohydrate diet, then you might want to supplement with Lean Out by Beverly. Lean Out is used by natural body builders who are looking to start their cutting process and their diet begins to change.

Beverly Lean Out

What makes Lean out by Beverly so effective is that is uses key ingredients that have been shown to help maintain energy levels while dieting. Some of these ingredients consist of B12, Carnitine, and Chromium. Beverly uses many ingredients to help improve natural energy levels, so that the negative side effects don’t bring you down.

Beverly Nutrition Lean out is a non stimulant fat burner. Though it will not affect you like other fat burners, making you sweaty and giving you tons of energy, it will help with keeping up your natural energy levels. The way that Lean Out works is by increasing the body’s natural uses of proteins for energy, so that you do not need to rely on carbohydrates as much.

Others will notice more muscle endurance in the gym. One negative side effect that happens with dieting and still lifting weights is the lack of muscle endurance. Beverly Lean Out formula is a good formula for anyone who is looking to maintain muscle mass while still pushing iron. This is helpful before summer swim time, or a competition.

Dieting can be difficult and draining, especially if you are just starting out, but supplementing with the proper nutrients can help improve dieting as well as performance in the gym. Lean Out has the proper dosage and ingredients to help with dieting and weight loss.

Getting back to the basics and improving strength

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Bodybuilding, Men's Health, Men's Workouts

There are many different exercises that people are coming up with, especially with CrossFit but it is sometimes best getting back to the basics and lifting properly to get past plateaus. If you are a natural lifter who has been lifting for more than 3 years, you have probably had a few plateaus. You may have resorted to negatives, taking a break or loading up on more supplements – whatever you may have tried, try getting back to the basics with your lifts.

Proper Form is what matters

Many athletes will sacrifice form for results. Though this is not always a bad idea, it is only for those who are truly maximizing muscle and used for a short period of time. Improper form for a long period of time can lead to poor joint health, little results in strength, and no visual results. It is OK to ‘cheat’ sometimes when performing and exercise to push through some reps, but this is after a few reps of proper form. Usually what happens when people use poor lifting form, other muscles have to compensate and the muscle that is supposed to be worked out is hardly doing anything.

For example: bad form on bench usually means that the triceps, shoulders, and upper back are being over compensating and the chest muscles are hardly doing anything. This will cause shoulder problems and you will gain little improvement in that actual lift. Now if a lifter has performed a few sets and the muscle it exhausted then a little help from other muscle groups is OK.

A quick and easy way to learn about lifting form is by watching youtube. Yes, there are a lot of people who do not perform good form on youtube, but there are also many intelligent lifters that can help show how to properly lift. Using proper form may seem like taking a step backwards for some of you but strength gains and results happen much faster once you get that fixed.

How many sets and reps?

Getting back to the basics is also about focusing on what is important, and not being so concerned about fancy rep schemes and crazy workouts. Depending on the body type the reps can range from 10 to 5 reps, and each workout will consist of only 3 to 4 exercises. Though this may seem like not enough, if you are performing the reps properly and using the right amount of reps your body should notice results within 2 to 3 weeks. This routine should only be performed for 5 weeks at the most. Remember this routine is designed so that you can push past plateaus and move on to the next level of your training.

Perform workouts that have a low impact on joints. This means that you are not doing a bunch of jungle gym type of exercise, but getting under some iron and pushing out the reps. First exercise of each workout should be hitting the main muscle group that you are working out. The second exercise of the next workout will be hitting the same muscle group or the supporting muscle group while using lighter weight and increasing the amount of reps. Third exercise will be burnout sets, which will completely exhaust the muscle group in which you are training. Below is an example of how this should look. You can use this routine or modify it to what works best for you.

What Supplements should I be taking?

Now that we you have an example of what the workout routine let us take a look into the basic supplements that should be taken during this time. It may be good to take a break from the usually supplements that you take and allow yourself to get back to the basics with supplements. There are three supplements that people should try while using this routine. If you already have a good supplements program in place then don’t change it, but if you are trying to determine what works here are a few suggestions.

Multi Vitamin

Every person should be using some kind of multi-vitamin, especially when you are over active and lifting weights. Try to find a multivitamin that has all the essential vitamin and minerals, but in addition has fish oils. Having this combination can help with the absorption of the vitamin and minerals, as well as preserve joints and aid in weight loss.

Carbohydrates

Loading up on clean carbohydrates can help improve metabolism, increase nitrogen retention and give you a lean hard muscle looks. Using products like Waxy Maize and Dextrin can also help with recovery from workouts and rehydrate the muscles. This is a basic supplement, but very essential to lifting and improving strength. It is best to use these carbohydrates before and during a workout. You will notice that you are able to push more weight as well as increase in performance. Make sure to be drinking plenty of water while using this supplement.

Preworkout

Though pre-workouts have only been out since the early 90’s they have quickly become a basic supplements to use. There are a variety of supplements to take, but it may be good to take a break from geranium based supplements, and get something that has more than six ingredients. Many products out on the market use a variety of ingredients to make sure that you are able to obtain true strength gains.

Are you basic enough?

Getting back to the basics can help push past plateaus and increase strength in later lifts. If you are tired of not getting stronger and not seeing results, give this routine a try for 5 weeks and see what happens. Take note of what supplements are helpful for your body, and focus on form.

The Best Post Workout Supplement

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Bodybuilding, Muscle Builders, Reviews, Supplements, Workout Plans

Post workout drinks are used to help with recovery and maintain muscle fullness, allowing the anabolic window to last longer and feeding the muscle more nutrition. Many post workouts vary on what they do and in ingredients, so we will be looking at the top three post workout and explain why we think they are the best on the market.

 

Re-Con by Muscle Pharm

Our number one post workout is Re-Con. This product goes over and above with ingredients to assure maximum recovery. The idea behind Re-Con is making sure that it loads you with enough carbohydrates and proper amino acids to help muscles recover faster. It also contains antioxidants to help repair muscles as well as restore blood. Along with maximum recovery it helps keep veins open so that the body is able to absorb more nutrients.

 

Dark Matter by MHP

Loaded with 12 grams of protein and waximaize. 12 grams of protein may not seem like much but after a workout you want to make sure that you body absorbs all the protein that you consume. Many times people will consume more protein than what their body can process and this will lead to bloating and gas. Taking protein with waximaize helps with the absorption of amino acids and improves recovery time.

 

Size On by Gaspari

Last but not least, Size On by Gaspari is one of the better Post workouts because it has protein, carbohydrates, and some creatine. Creatine isn’t bad when supplemented correctly and it gives good gains while improving recovery. Size On also has 5 grams of leucine which is the most anabolic amino acid. Supplementing with Leucine with other aminos helps increase amino acid absorption and promotes muscle growth.

 

These are our top rated post workouts. If you would like to learn more you can go to their pages and read up or you can try it yourself. Incorporating a post workout into your supplement regimen can help improve size and strength.

Day 4 – How to Gain 5lbs of Muscle

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Bodybuilding, Workout Plans

This is the last day of our bulking program. On the fourth day we will be focusing on shoulders and triceps. It is important to warm up the shoulders very similarly as the chest day, focusing on the rotator cuff. We will transition into heavy shoulder press quickly and it is important to be prepped properly beforehand.

 

Shoulder Workout! How to build wide shoulders…

Warm Up – 10 Minutes

Hopefully by this time you have found that warming up has really improved your workouts and you notice how the blood flow really increases performance. 10 minutes at a steady walk on an incline, increase your heart rate.

Dumbbell Shoulder Press – 12, 8, 5, 5

Also known as military press is a great shoulder workout that really hits the entire shoulder and builds up strength for other workouts. The reps of 12 should be a good weight that will give good resistance.

Lateral Raises – 10, 6, 6

Try to grab a hold of a bar that will allow you to stand at a slant, so that you may be able to swing the weight. As you peak at the top try to hold the weight and squeeze the deltoid muscles. As you move back down, control it and do not let it swing too much. You may also notice that the traps will be activated when squeezing the delts.

Laying Front Raises – 12, 12, 12

Put the bench at a slight incline and grad a hold of a straight bar with a narrow grip and bring the weight up where it pinches the front of the deltoid. The shoulders should be worn out by now so it is important to push past that and finish the shoulders strong.

Incline Skull Crushers – 10, 6, 6

I first heard of these when they were called Canadian crushers. Skull crushers are great, but sometimes when you go heavy it is difficult to keep the butt down on the bench. Moving to an incline will help to keep the butt down and still activate the triceps. Try to keep you elbows pointing directly at the sealing when the weight is at your head.

Rope Pull Down – 12, 12, 12, 12

Bend slightly at the waist and have your hands close together when you start, as you push down widen your grip and squeeze the triceps. The more you concentrate on the tricep head and squeeze the more blood you will be able to fill the muscle.

 

Quick Notes

-          Warm up the Shoulders

-          Rest to push more weight

-          Concentrate on squeezing the triceps

 

Supplementation

Ok, so up to this point we have been going over what will really help add on true strength and size, but today we will focus on some more fun products that make you feel good while lifting. Energy and pump are what some people live for when working out, though they are not the most important thing they really do make the workout better.

Pre-Workout: There are two kinds or pre workouts that people can choose from. The concentrate formula and traditional, both work well but the concentrate usually focuses on energy and the traditional formula uses more ingredients to help increase actually muscle performance.

Nitric Oxide: Increasing nitric oxide in the blood has been one of the biggest game changers in the last couple of years. Many companies will use arginine, citrulline, and beta-alanine to help boost nitric oxide in the body.
