Winter Bulk - Summer bodies are made in winter

Bodybuilders work hard throughout the winter months to build bulk. Focus then switches to fat burning and muscle sculpting throughout the spring and summer months.  The goal of bulking is to gain weight in muscle, not fat.  Strength training, quality nutrition and the correct use of supplements play key roles in developing muscle mass without experiencing significant weight gain from fat.

Bulking up for 2017

If you are ready to embark on a muscle building regime for 2017 you will need to ensure you are complementing your strength training with appropriate nutrition. Muscles need food to grow and without sufficient fuel (protein, carbohydrates and fats) muscle tissue will not develop.

Shred the holiday weight

At the start of the year most of us are keen to get back into shape and shed any excess weight gained over the Christmas period. Before you start any new fitness program or diet, consider the benefits of weight loss success and try and understand how sports supplements can help you achieve your dream goal.

Food Swaps - Making the right choices for your waistline

Body Composition Explained

Body composition refers to the percentage of fat, bone, water and muscle in a human body.  Muscle tissue takes up less space in your body than fat tissue.  Muscle also burns more calories than fat, which means the more muscle you have the more calories you will burn – even at rest.
 

Burn fat and reveal your muscle

To achieve a leaner body that shows of defined muscle, you have to start by getting rid of any excess fat covering the muscle.  The concept is simple; burn more calories than you take in on a daily basis i.e. if you consume 2,500Kcal (10,460 kJ) per day then you will need to burn more than this per day to lose weight.
