The other day a reader asked me if I knew ADE because he was thinking of injecting and wanted to know my opinion, then answered him get it out of your 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 consists of vitamins ADE, is an oil that serves to compensate for the lack of vitamins in animals.

The ADE has become popular in gyms for their result is almost instant because when applying the muscle becomes swollen at the time, but it's just swelling and no muscle and lean mass.

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

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

ADE is sold in various packaging for veterinary use and sold in gyms is often manipulated by the seller and placed in vials with the amount for a given cycle.

To finish sees this video that shows the arm of an athlete running down probably ADE, in a bodybuilding contest.

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

First it must be clear that no article posted here, replace a consultation with a professional in the field, but only directs those with questions or have no knowledge about food and do sports feeding incorrectly.

Strength training builds muscle and for this to occur 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 your daily needs ), your muscles will grow much more. One of the problems of ingesting high amounts of protein is that the excess can be accumulated as fat, in addition to overload the kidneys and can cause damage to them.

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

Supplementation of protein is important, but 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 the protein for muscle building. When there is not enough carbohydrate in the diet, especially before and after exercise, the body begins to oxidize proteins of tissues, including muscle tissue to meet the energy needs.

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

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

The menu to be followed 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
  • Ingesting 2 liters of water a day
  • Avoid fried food 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 can help to gain muscle as whey protein , BCAA , maltodextrin, liquid amino acids, among others, but it is necessary and important to go in for an appointment with the dietitian because he, through a review detailed and comprehensive state will know the best supplement for your case.

To achieve the desired results no miracle except that of balanced diet. Yes, it's yet effective and final slow process. Who knows if eating correctly and disciplined manner surely reach your goal successfully.

For more information about health, always consult a professional.

Matter Magazine See this week's edition in 2074 , shows the changing concepts of human muscle definition over the years, and also the evolution of the physical exercises to achieve the new standard of aesthetic definition.

by Bel Moherdaui

Justinha of leggings and underwear, the heartthrob Richard Gere appeared in American Gigolo, Movie, 1980, as the prototype of male beauty carried to extremes of physical perfection - came to do inverted crunches, which left the female audience upside down. Today, if an academy Gere appeared as the character Julian Kaye, provoke two reactions: 1) would ask where is the definition; 2) would have to sweat a lot longer to get to commendable levels of belly, thigh and biceps - as evidenced by the comparison made recently by People magazine between the old days and handsome actor Mario Lopez, young and aspiring carved burly hunk. "In the 80s, when the concept of fitness began to spread, have good physique meant having good aerobic conditioning. Do not be led into account strength, flexibility, percentage of body fat. Even testing for the fire department only mediate cardiovascular performance, "remembers Eduardo Netto, technical director of a network of academies, which at that time was already a gym teacher.
