Food is the sole source of human energy. Therefore, if you are eating regularly, getting enough sleep, exercising, and keeping the stress level low, then your energy level is likely to remain in a stable condition. 

But, if the rush of life is stumbling you across different rocks of daily activities, then the regular food intake may be enough. But, it would help if you packed more power in your guts. That is where the health supplements come in. You use them, and you are good to go for the day.

How important is pre-workout?

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

By definition, a pre-workout is a form of supplement that you consume before you start working out, sports competition or training practice. It is designed to help you perform better during workout and also helps to keep your body stable after the session, especially if the exercise involves intense workout. In any sports nutrition, a pre-workout is included as important addition to enhance the athlete and improve performance.

How Caffeine Affects Your Weight Training

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Caffeine FitnessOn some level, we all know that caffeine is not exactly good for us, at least not in large doses and certainly not when it comes from sugary sodas or coffee drinks loaded up with cream and sugar (Starbucks: proudly serving 10% coffee in every coffee drink!). But whether you’re a soda hound or you drink black coffee throughout the day, you’ve likely experienced side effects like the jittery high that keeps you working like mad for an hour followed by the comatose state that leaves you craving more.

Then there are the headaches that plague truly devoted caffeine enthusiasts who don’t get their fix in a timely manner. I haven’t personally experienced this, but I have no less than 5 friends or aquaintances that do.

However, imbibing a moderate amount of caffeine can actually have some benefits for the casual drinker. Aside from giving you that extra boost of energy and focus, it can also have healthy effects for those who have the proper enzymes to break it down efficiently, potentially reducing the risk for heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and even some forms of cancer, according to various studies.

It can also have an impact on your weight training routine.
