The other day a reader asked me if I knew ADE because he was thinking of injecting and wanted to know my opinion, then I answered him get it out of my head!

ADE is one of the most dangerous features that uninformed use to increase muscle mass.

ADE is a veterinary product used in horse, pig, cattle, or in animals, should not be used / consumed by humans.

ADE is composed of ADE vitamins, is an oil used to address the lack of vitamins in animals.

The ADE has become popular in gyms for your result is almost instantaneous, because by applying the muscle becomes swollen at the time, but just swelling and no muscle and lean body mass.

The consequence can be many, arm necrosis (if Gregg Valentino) to death (many young)!

The result in my opinion and a lot is summed up in a single palava: Ridiculous!

ADE is sold in various packaging for veterinary use and sold in gyms is often handled by seller and placed in small vials to the amount for a particular cycle.

Finally see this video showing the arm of a runny athlete, probably ADE, in a bodybuilding contest.

I always had curiosity about the Power Ball, some friends of the academy commented on several videos on Youtube that show people using the Power Ball, I watched several, but never really understood how it worked.

So I contacted the company NSD Ball and they forwarded me here for the blog so I could test, I confess I suspected the "power" of the product, but when you got the hang of turning the ball was struck. Works even! When the movement is executed correctly, it makes an incredible force to control and it ends up working muscles.

Meet the "story" of Gregg Valentino, the guy who blew up the arm due to such "bomb" that applied ...

The video is old, but I'm sure a lot of people did not see or even do not even know Gregg Valentino, some video images can be "strong"!

I remember that as soon as I entered the gym, in the weight, my instructor spoke to me to train more twins, but at the time I did not even know it was twins and the guy was kind of suitcase also so I did not hear what he was saying, some time later I found that twins was the calf, and now agree with him ... lol ... I should have trained more calf, or rather twins, or better yet, gastrocnemius.
And that's why today's post will be the same anatomy class, we will know the human body muscles!

I have received several emails from readers wanting more information on how to achieve increased muscle mass and losing body fat, so I decided to make this post in an attempt to answer questions of all or almost all.

First you need to make it clear that any articles posted here, replacing an appointment with a healthcare professional, but only directs those who have questions or do not have knowledge about diet and practice sport feeding incorrectly.

Strength training builds muscle and for this to happen it is necessary to provide the body the material for this development:. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats Many physical activity practitioners believe that eating a lot of protein (usually far above their daily needs ), your muscles will grow more. One of the problems ingesting high amounts of protein is that excess may be accumulated as fat, in addition to overload the kidneys and may cause damage to them.

Proteins have an important role in the diet (especially those who train hard) because they act in the repair and building of muscle tissue after exercise. With increasing intensity of training, it needs additional proteins to support muscle growth and that is on average 1.6 g of protein per kg body weight.

Supplemental protein is important, but one should never forget the carbohydrate nutrient more than necessary for the formation of muscles, as I said in another article.

Carbohydrate is responsible for maintaining glycogen stores for the body to use protein for muscle building. When there is not enough carbohydrate in the diet, especially before and after training, the body starts to oxidize proteins from tissues, including muscle tissue, to meet energy needs.

A diet with approximately 70% carbohydrates ensure a better utilization of proteins in muscle building and consequently higher mass.

To lose body fat while gaining more muscle mass is not an easy task. The ideal is to achieve one thing at a time, ie, first mass and then the fat loss. What happens is that for those who want to promote lean mass increase accompanied with strength training is necessary to add 500 to 1000Kcal a day, and so it's inevitable the increase in body fat. To "dry up" the extra extra fat it is ideal to make a calorie-restricted diet (approximately 500kcal less) and maintain strength training with carbohydrate before, during and after training, according to the intensity of the workout, to keep muscles (already won).

The menu to follow or foods that should be avoided is nothing different from anything I've said in other articles here on the blog, but it is always good to remember:

  • Avoid fatty foods such as fried foods, creams, meat with visible fat, sausages, etc.
  • Make 6 meals a day
  • Drink 2 liters of water a day
  • Avoid fried foods and prefer baked, grilled, boiled etc.
  • Avoid soda and beer (mostly with meals)
  • Beware of candy
  • Consume adequate servings of fruits and vegetables every day, always preferring fresh food and well-maintained to ensure a good supply of vitamins and minerals.

There are some commercially available supplements that may contribute to gains in muscle mass as whey protein, BCAA, maltodextrin, liquid amino acids, among others, but it is necessary and important to pass on a consultation with the professional nutritionist, for he, through an assessment detailed and comprehensive know will indicate the best supplement for your case.

To achieve the desired results no miracle unless the balanced diet. Yes, it's a slow process, but effective and definitive. Perhaps to feed on correct and disciplined manner surely reach its goal successfully.

For more information about health, always consult a professional.

Magazine matter See this week Edition 2074, shows the change in concepts of muscle definition of man over the years, and also the evolution of exercise to achieve the new definition of aesthetic pattern.

by Bel Moherdaui

Justinha of leggings and underwear, the heartthrob Richard Gere appeared in American Gigolo, 1980 film, as the prototype of masculine beauty carried to extremes of physical improvement - came to do inverted sit-ups, which made the female audience upside down. Today, if Gere appeared in academia as the character Julian Kaye, cause two reactions: 1) would ask where is the definition; 2) would have to sweat a lot longer to get to commendable levels of belly, thighs and biceps - as shown by the comparison made recently by People magazine between the handsome old times and actor Mario Lopez, young and carved aspiring heartthrob strong one. "In the 80s, when the concept of fitness began to spread, having good physical meant having good aerobic conditioning. They not took into account strength, flexibility, percentage of body fat. Even the tests for the fire department only measured cardiovascular performance, "recalls Eduardo Netto, technical director of a network of academies, which at the time was already gym teacher. Goers "weight room", a space endowed with a few simple devices were generally practicing bodybuilding.
