What is the Best Creatine?

Written by thebigphil. Posted in Articles, Men's Workouts, Muscle Builders, Women's Workouts

Creatine is by far the most popular workout product on the market. Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most researched products with proven results. Creatine Monohydrate at one point was very grainy and didn’t mix very well, but now it comes in a very fine powder and works! You can find creatine in many different forms; some popular ones are Creatine Magna Power, Creatine Ethyl Ester, Creatine Citrate, and Creatine AKG. With so many options of creatine how do you know which one is best for you? Listed below are our top three creatine products. We chose these off of effectiveness and price.

Con Cret

Creatine HCl has become more and more popular because of its effectiveness. Con Cret is Creatine Monohydrate that is bonded to Hydrochloride (HCl). The reason why this is so effective is because the body breaks down HCl very easily and when it is bonded to creatine it leads to a faster more effective absorption rate.

 

Creatine RT

Not many people knew what Russian Tarragon was until Athletic Edge came out with it. Russian Tarragon is as effective as consuming 50 grams of carbohydrates without the negative side effects. Taking creatine with Russian Tarragon helps increase abosroption and makes create more effective. Creatine RT also use Taurine to help open up blood to make it more receptive to nitric oxide based products.

 

CarnoCre

One of the most effective creatine supplements on the market. CarnoCre can be used when cutting and bulking. CarnoCre is often looked at as being a Beta Alanine product, but combining Beta Alanine with creatine helps produce a better creatine supplement. CarnoCre is not loaded with creatine but it does have a precise amount of creatine in it to help boost muscle performance.

 

These are our top three best creatine supplements. If you are interested in developing muscle and are tired of using Creatine Monohydrate, give one of these three a try.

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

Re-Con by Muscle Pharm

Muscle Pharm Re-Con

Our number one post workout is Re-Con. This product goes over and above with ingredients to assure maximum recovery. The idea behind Muscle Pharm Re-Con is to make 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.

  • Rebuilds Muscle Tissue
  • Replenishes Vital Nutrients
  • Boosts Immune and Recovery Mechanisms

 

Dark Matter by MHP

Buy Dark Matter

MHP Dark Matter is 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 of the protein that you consume. Many times people will consume more protein than 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.

Benefits of Dark Matter by MHP

  • Multi-Phase HydroSIZE Creatine Transport

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. Gaspari Size On also has 5 grams of leucine which is the most anabolic amino acid. Supplementing Leucine with other aminos helps increase amino acid absorption and promotes muscle growth.

The 6 Best Exercises – How To Lean Out

Written by thebigphil. Posted in Articles, Men's Health, Men's Workouts, Women's Health, Women's Workouts, Workout Plans

There are thousands of different workouts available to us and for the most part they all technically help you lose weight. When you exercise, the body will begin to burn calories and working muscles can help burn calories even long after workouts. Here are six different exercises that can help burn calories by activating more than one muscle group. The first three exercises can be performed without weight and the last three are with weights.

how to lean out

How To Lean Out

Burpee – This full body exercise is probably one of most popularly used by Trainers in gyms. The reason for this is because it helps the heart rate quickly jump up while activating just about every body part.

Start by standing straight, then drop to a plank position, perform a push up, bring your legs to your chest, then jump up and repeat. Performing ten in a row should be one set and depending on your physical ability, you should try to perform three or four sets.

Mountain Climbers – This exercise still activates many muscle groups and depending how fatigued you are from other exercises it can still be very challenging.

Start in a plank position, thrust one knee to your chest and as that leg moves back down, quickly transition the other leg back up to your chest. Go until you feel as though you cannot do anymore.

Box Jumps – this exercise can vary in its degree of difficulty. You can make it more challenging by using a bigger box to jump on or you can make it more of a cardiovascular exercise by using a shorter box and jumping on it for a certain amount of time. Either way this explosive exercise is really good for exercise and burning calories.

Exercises with Weights

We will now transfer into weights. These exercises are meant to be performed by more experienced lifters, and if you are unsure about the exercise or how you are performing them, always check with someone who is well experienced, or a personal trainer. Weight exercises tend to burn more calories than body weight. This is why we have included three exercises that can be added to body weight exercises if so desired.

Hang Cleans – This is a powerful workout that will boost the heart rate while activating long and short muscles. Many people who I see perform hang cleans make the mistake of not being violent enough with the weight. This is an aggressive exercise that needs a lot of explosion. Start with the weight around knee level and then explode it up using the hips and legs to really accelerate the weight up and then catch it with your shoulders.

Front Squats – This workout is probably the least liked out of all of the exercise presented. Front Squats activate more of the core than regular squats and forces people to balance more. It is also thought that it hits more of the tear drop muscle in the quad. Make sure to rest the weight on the shoulders and not on the wrist as this just cause’s unnecessary strain on the wrist. Perform the normal squat motion and focus on your form while maintaining balance.

Dead Lifts – Dead lifts activate the back, legs, shoulders and core. Make sure to use proper form on all of these exercises and especially with dead lifts. It is ok to start out light and move your way up. With dead lifts you should be able to move up in weight fairly quickly compared to other exercises. This exercise can be performed with heavy weight and less reps, or with light weight and lots of reps, either one can be beneficial towards a workout. If you are new to deadlifts please start very light until you figure out the proper form. This is a back killer if done wrong. Ask a trainer at your gym or a regular and they will usually be happy to give you advice.

These have been six exercises that help with increasing metabolism and to shred the fat. These exercises can be performed by both men and women. Remember to use proper form especially when using weight and have a professional or someone you trust to help you teach these proper movements to make the most of your workouts.

5 of the Most Bizarre Exercises That Really Work

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Men's Workouts, Women's Workouts, Workout Plans

Some people are always looking for the next best workout to perform that will help them get ripped and achieve the best results. Though these workouts that are listed below may not be the most bizarre lifts ever performed they certainly are unique and really help with changing the physique. If you want to change up some of your routine and are looking for something that will give you the extra edge then give these 5 bizarre workouts a try.

Kettle Bell Swings

kettle bell

Not all gyms will have kettle bells so you may need to use a dumbbell instead. This workout has been shown to burn more calories than cardio alone. It functions as a full body cardio workout that helps cut you up. This exercise activates the legs, abdomen, shoulders, and back. If you are not impressed yet, then I don’t know what will. Adding the Kettle Bell Swing to your routine can help add some extra cardio while still preserving muscle and leaning you out.

Bulgarian Squats

split squat

This workout is probably one of the most underrated workouts for legs. If you are looking to add size and definition to your legs without the extra stress of heavy weight, then look no further than the Bulgarian Split Squat. This exercise can help with increasing your main lifts like squatting and dead lifts, while preserving your knee. Some people will add some extra weight but not a large load. This exercise can be performed with no weight, dumbbells and/or barbell.

Australian Pull Ups

australian pull up

This awkward lateral pulling motion can actually help improve regular pull ups as well as strengthen the smaller muscles in the back. The Australian Pull Up has a few different variables to it but overall it helps to activate the upper back muscles and abdomen. The Australian Pull Up can also help improve many of the pushing exercises, like bench press because of its impact on strengthening the shoulder muscles.

Clean and Press

clean and jerk

This full body exercise is one of the more hardcore exercises and original Olympic lifts. It is important that before you start performing the clean and press that you learn how to clean and push press. These two motions together are what create the clean and press. Many people can clean more than they press, so make sure you don’t use too much weight, or this could lead to shoulder problems. This exercise can help aid in other lifts because of its ability to activate so many other muscles. Adding this to your routine can really help improve your workouts.

Row Machine

row machine

I know this is not a lift, but it really is a great exercise. The row Machine is a low impact cardio workout that uses the back, legs and abdomen. There are different variables to how to use the Row Machine which leaves the user to trying different routines and allows more freedom in their cardio routine.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine

Bodybuilders have used Carnitine supplements for years to help retain muscle and increase fat metabolism. Using the Acetyl form of Carnitine is a simple and effective way to increase energy output while exercising and cutting fat. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has also been shown to help with nitric oxide production while working out.

Aspartic Acid

This non essential amino acid has been shown to help in the production of other amino acids as well as metabolism. Though it is a non essential amino acid it still has been shown to help with increasing energy output while diet and exercise.

Caffeine

Stim Elite uses Caffeine Anhydrous. This form of caffeine is used to increase the absorption of caffeine to help improve energy levels and also works as a thermogenic. Caffeine is one of the most researched ingredients on the market currently. You can consume up to 2 times your body weight in grams of caffeine. Though this isn’t great for every person, some studies have shown great improvement in muscle endurance when this has been combined with carbohydrates.

Green Coffee Bean

Recently found to be very effective in helping reducing fat, green coffee bean extract is known to help reduce cortisol production. Cortisol is a stress hormone that many people do not realize is associated with fat gain. Cortisol is released while the body is under stress, i.e. dieting, work related and holiday rush.

Raspberry Ketone

Synephrine is a great addition to have when trying to lose weight. Raspberry Ketones have been shown to help increase synephrine in the body. This can help with an increase in energy, thermogenics, and weight loss. Many people who take Raspberry Ketones in high dosages will notice a boost in blood and a warming feeling.

Pausinystalia Yohimbe

This is another popular thermogenic for people. Yohimbe has been used in the past to help cut people up. Another unique thing about Yohimbe is that it can also help with the pump feeling while working out. This is because it helps with blood flow, which in turn can help with the transportation of nutrients in the muscle while working out.

 

Stim Elite by BPI

 

This formula may offer minor muscle pumps, but its sole focus is to help metabolize fat and shrink the belly. If you like to break a good sweat while working out and want to get a good boost then maybe you should try Stim Elite by BPI
