30-Minute Workout Enough To Build Muscle?

It could also be a disaster. Clearly, it's what you do with those 30-minutes that may or may not trigger muscle growth. Whether it be a good circuit workout, “popsugar” workouts, or whatever 30-minute fitness thing you can come up with, the reality is, that it's largely irrelevant.

Reams of peer reviewed and published research indicate numerous ergogenic benefits of creatine supplementation, as well as eating creatine rich foods (meat).

What is Sports Nutrition?

What is Sports Nutrition?

Sports nutrition is basically pretty much like it sounds - nutrition for athletes. The essence of the concept being that a sports dietician, or the athlete himself, constructs a specific athlete meal plan that will spell out precisely what the athlete's diet should consist of, based on the specific nutritional needs the pursuit of his sport presents.

Rich Gaspari's 2020 Arnold Predictions

Rich Gaspari's 2020 Arnold Predictions

I really don't like to make predictions about contest outcomes, particularly for contests as big and as important as the Arnold. In order to make such a prediction, I can only do it fairly if I can imagine everyone being at their best. You can't really do it any other way. I am, however, expected to give my Arnold predictions, in spite of what I might feel about making predictions about guys I haven't seen – and it wouldn't matter if I have seen them anyway, because the only time when it's gonna matter how they look is still weeks...
