How Diet And Exercise Can Alter Your Metabolism

Diet And Exercise

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) can justifiably claim 60% to 75% of our Total Energy Expenditure (TEE). Simply put, TEE, is the total amount of energy that we expend throughout an entire day. Digestion and absorption of food are called the Thermogenic Effect of Feeding (TEF) and accounts for 5% to 10% of our TEE. Energy expended via physical activity is called the Thermogenic Effect of Activity (TEA), which comprises roughly 20% to 30% of our TEE. Body Surface Area (BSA) is a major determinant of RMR, however, voluntary behaviors such as diet and exercise influence RMR in a positive manner. …

Food Poisoning: What Is It And How To Avoid It.

food-poisoning

Bodybuilding success is largely dependant on whether one has access to a fresh supply of nutritious foods. Chicken, beef, turkey, and fish are all examples of staple protein sources, designed to build serious muscle if consumed in sufficient quantities. However, given bodybuilders typically eat considerably more than the average person, as they strive to add mass to their physiques, particular attention should be given to the quality of the foods they ingest. The aforementioned protein sources are notoriously susceptible to contamination if incorrect preparation processes are followed – one more reason to avoid fast-food restaurants (these are where many of …

The Real Reasons Why Dieting Sucks?

dieting

Brothers, we’ve all been there. We’ve all got our own stories to tell. We all know dieting f*cking sucks. Here are a couple of observations from some bodybuilders and coaches: Machine The alarm goes off. 4 a.m. came too quick. Your mouth is dry, you can’t walk without hamstring cramps and egg whites with oatmeal does not seem to make you run to the breakfast table anyway. One hour of cardio, 90 minutes of weights, baked chicken breast, steamed green beans, and a headache to wash it down. All before 10 a.m. Damn, dieting sucks. G Diesel The dreams man… the …

Glycemic Index, Insulin, Fat And Building Muscle!

Glycemic Index

Even in the offseason, a true bodybuilder has to watch what they eat, or what would otherwise be a powerful, strong physique becomes fat and mush. Some bodybuilders don’t worry about it, the ectomorphs like Dexter Jackson and Flex Wheeler burn so many calories at rest that it’s difficult for them to stay in an anabolic (a state in which the body has more calories than it can use) state. But for people like Ronnie Coleman, who is a little endomorphic (tending to carry surplus fat) and tend to break down muscle with fat when calories are restricted, offseason diet …

How Natural Are You?

natural physique

This is still very much the question these days. It’s one thing to stay away from illegal muscle-enhancing substances and all that they bring with them, but in my eyes that doesn’t make you any more natural. As long as you treat your body as something you can fill up with spare parts, like an old junkyard car, you are nothing but a person without respect for his body. If you have the right genetics this will rarely hinder you in your progress but you’ll feel it later in life when you start wearing out. Being natural does not just …

The Best Protein To Build Muscle And Grow in 2020

protein

Like the majority of serious bodybuilders and athletes, I used to eat a ton of protein, 300 or more grams a day, most from protein supplements. Even though I spent a ton of time working out hard too, I saw less than optimal changes. The question is why? After years of intensive research and experimentation, I’ve finally figured out what the “secret” is: There’s a muscle-building equation that you’ve got to satisfy in order to get bigger, and most protein supplements are addressing only half of it. At best, they’re only giving you 50% of the muscle gains you’re capable of achieving. Many …
