It’s very rare nowadays that anyone who goes to the gym to work out, does it without taking supplements to aid the muscle building...
Eating right is just as important as exercising for muscle growth. Ideally you should have 5-6 small meals a day to provide you with the right level of nutrition. The easiest way to get some of these nutrients is from a protein supplement in the form of a shake. Here’s my review of Whey Protein 80 (concentrate) by The Protein Works.
It’s been a year since the introduction of 20% VAT on Sports Supplements in the UK which means paying 20% more for our favourite protein powders. Bulk Powders and other leading sports supplement companies have set up a campaign against this tax and need your help to raise awareness of this issue.
Over the past few weeks Skinny Muscles’ HQ has been transformed into a protein tasting lab. Numerous brands have been sending me samples of their latest products to be reviewed on your favorite fitness blog (the latest one being Kinetica Sports). I have been trying and tasting a whole load of protein powders in order to select the ones worthy of a review.
Supplements reviews are becoming a regular feature in the Skinny Muscles’ editorial calendar. That’s largely thanks to the sports nutrition companies that keep sending me samples of their products. My latest delivery is from GoNutrition™, who sent me samples of their Go Whey Protein 80™.
Most supplement brands offer their own protein flapjacks. They are meant to boost our energy levels, top up our protein intake and keep us going between meals. These bars have become the ultimate protein snack. Let’s see if they are really worth it.
The summer is almost here and everyone is putting extra hours in the gym. Working out, is though, only one of the steps towards achieving your new body. A proper diet, combined with enough rest and recovery between workout sessions are vital. That’s where Recovery XS by Myprotein comes into its own.
Food supplements have become a part of our diets. They are more commonly used by athletes and those who exercise and try to lead a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, however, too much of a good thing can be bad as we find out about vitamin poisoning in this article.
My facebook timeline is like the Who’s Who of protein manufacturers. There is barely a time when I check it without seeing a picture of someone’s favourite protein brand. That prompted me to review the whey protein I am most happy with – True Whey by Myprotein.
The winter-spring transition is when I suffer spring fever. It’s not an illness but “rather a phenomenon thought to be initiated by a change in the season.” In my case it means weariness, low energy levels and lack of drive. This year I will rely on micronutrients in the form of vitamins and minerals to fight spring fever.
