How to choose your Protein Source from Food and Supplements (Protein Guide)



What is protein?


A complete protein molecule consists of 21 different types of Amino Acids, which altogether are the ingredients, or in other words the "building blocks", of the structure of a protein, which is a molecule, specifically a Macromolecule that's made up of chains of Amino Acids.

Why you have to choose your training music wisely



Let's get straight to the point. What do you expect from the music you listen to while you train? Do you expect it to just keep you company? Or to motivate and energize your central nervous system for you to be able to 'feel' that rush of intense emotions? If it's the first, you're doing it wrong. If it's the second, you're doing it right! I'll tell you why.

The importance of a resting period for muscle hypertrophy



Without an adequate resting period after a workout, the fact is, you won't see any real gains in muscle mass other than the temporarily increased size from inflammation (study). That's probably the main reason why you're trying "so hard" but can't see the muscles growing, aside from not having a correct diet and/or supplementation, or having a really small number of muscle fibers due to genetic factors, or a disease, or a syndrome (or the combination of these), which eventually brings you to the conclusion that you are a hard gainer, although that's probably not the case.

One of the best muscle building workout Methods



If you want fast growth, first and most important remember not to work out all of your body muscles every day or regularly, avoid working out upper-body muscle groups and legs on the same day. You have to make a weekly schedule of workouts, where you have to place different muscle groups for each day of your weekly schedule. This is because your muscles need a rest period to be able to be repaired with added growth. If you won't follow this, you won't have a positive outcome on hypertrophy. Without the appropriate rest periods, your muscles will be in a constant repair mode, without getting any growth.

The Optimal muscle building diet



One of the most important things to consider for your muscle-building goals is the correct diet and nutrient needs. After your workouts, you are obliged to feed your body with protein and all the needed nutrients from food, you might also consider the supplementation of protein with a protein supplement, in case you are not able to get enough protein from your food.

Creatine & Citrulline malate, everything you have to know



Contrary to some common beliefs, these supplements are natural and safe if you follow the suggested doses (especially Citrulline malate which is very safe even by using very high doses). Though you don't 'have to' consume Creatine monohydrate and Citrulline malate in contrast to BCAA, these supplements will help you to achieve your goals much faster than without them, for the following reasons:

BCAA, you really need them, BUT...

BCAA - Branched Chain Amino Acids

BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids)


The building blocks of muscle's protein - Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine). This (in combination with a full protein with all the EAA / Essential Amino Acids) is the most important supplement you can provide to your body for muscle fiber reconstruction and enhancement during your rest periods, and the most crucial role between them corresponds to L-leucine. It is even more important that your body cannot produce these three amino acids by itself, therefore it depends by taking them from your food & supplements, which are the only source.
