What is The Carbohydrate Curve? Is It Useful?
I already know up front that I am going to get push back on this post by some. But hey, that is the fun part. A little while ago I bought Mark Sisson’s book The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation: A step-by-step, gene reprogramming action plan. If you are unsure of who Mark Sisson is, he advocates a Paleo lifestyle and runs a very popular blog. With that said he has some firm stances on nutrition, one of them being excessive carbohydrate consumption. So I thought I would outline his carboydrate curve on here for you to read through and think about. So if you want to know what amount of carbs you should have on a daily basis and why keep on reading.

Are There Real Benefits To Juicing?
I know I am not the only one who has seen the infomercials of the fully white haired man with big bushy white eye brows advocating the benefits of juicing. Usually you see the presenter or host be in their 70′s radiating with health and they give the credit to the benefits of juicing. Even the late fitness guru Jack Lelanne came out with his power juicer and he was a pillar of health and fitness into his 90s. If you search on the internet you can find all sorts of information on the benefits of juicing. Heck there are full blown documentaries you can watch solely on the benefits of juicing.

A Glimpse Into Creatine
Here is another guest post by James on creatine. If you ever wondered if creatine is beneifical or not read this post. Supplements can be a benefit to your workout, for that there is no argument. It is down to you to ensure that the supplements are used effectively and do not hinder either your workouts or your health in general. When used in the right way you can see results far quicker than simply going to the gym, and if you are effective in using them then you will be happy with the outcome. There are supplements that offer slightly more than just the simple protein shake, and these have to be seriously considered before you take them, and creatine is such an addition. It can be a big help to those who want to gain muscle mass quickly, but at the same time there are concerns over its use.

What Are The Benefits of Jumping Rope?
I have to say that for some reason I never actually jumped rope other than when I was a kid. A week or so ago a reader of this blog asked me to do a post on the benefits of jumping rope. I said that is a good idea, but what I did not say is that I have little idea of the benefits of jumping rope simply because I have not incorporated it into my workout routines. yes me, the guy who advocates to try any and all exercises I some how lost sight of jumping rope. So I went and bought a jump rope at the store and come to some very quick conclusions. Before I get to those however I just wanted to point out that although something like jumping rope has been around for decades it does not mean it is less effective. I am learning that the hard way at the moment. All that to say there are benefits of jumping rope and if you want to know the ones I have found in this short time, then keep on reading.
Honestly, Can Supplements Really Make You Fat?
This is a guest post by James, he has provided some really good content that is worth the time to read so keep on reading. Working out can be a challenge to all of us, and breaking through that barrier of ‘can I really lift this’ or ‘this hurts too much’ can sometimes be an issue that is never solved. With the guidance of friends, a personal trainer, or even blogs online you can be sure to get as much support as possible in reaching your goals, but for some of us that extra push is needed. At the gym or whilst you are outside training you may have seen many others attached to a plastic container in their hand and wondered exactly what it is, and probably found out that they are taking supplements to aid their programs. If you intend to buy supplements and they are something that a lot of us have considered using from time to time, they can be a real benefit.
Two Leg Strengthening Exercises You Can Do With Just Your Bodyweight
When I use to go to the gym I would always see the top heavy weight lifters. They would spend countless hours on bulking up their upper body but little to no time working their legs. The end results was always the same, big bulky upper bodies with chicken legs. My idea fitness greatly differs from the top heavy gym goers. If your going to be fit, you need to be overall fit. Being fit involves being able to do many different things from power lifting to yoga. If you are one dimensional in how you work out you are going to have a lot of holes in other areas of your body that need work. In this post I am going to cover two leg strengthening exercises you can do without weights to put a stop to being top heavy and bringing balance to your body.
