Eating the right food at the right time is (together with working out, resting and recovery) one of the most important parts of building muscles. Working out your muscles without eating right is like expecting your car to run on its brake fluid. It’s just not going to happen. Let me show you a way to your six pack abs in six meals.
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.
Being on any kind of diet is a challenge. There’s no question about it. A weight gain diet is no exception. Whether you eat little and often or stuff yourself for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack in between, is a tough call. The only way to make it work and see results is to adapt it to your lifestyle and habits. In other words: you need to make your own weight gain diet.

Over the past few weeks Skinny Muscles’ HQ has been transformed into a protein tasting lab.

I've been skinny my whole life, every year I try to work out, etc, but end up lacking motivation to continue. People think I don't eat but they don't know that I eat like a pig everyday (at least 2000 calories, which is a lot for me at least).
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.
