Do Creatine Supplements Work?

I see this questions on a lot of bodybuilding forums…Does Creatine really work?

The short answer is YES!

I take Creatine Monohydrate everyday…actually twice a day. I had the same question 8 months ago until I stopped taking it several times after being on it for a few months. My muscles got smaller and did not pump as hard as before. My muscles look and feel fuller when I’m taking Creatine Monohydrate. I take 1 tsp in warm water twice a day.

Here is the Creatine Monohydrate supplement that I am taking and have been taking for about 9 months.

It can be a pain to constantly measure or weigh food portions….4 oz meat…1 cup of rice, 1 cup of green beans, etc.

Fresh Starts 1 Cup Chilled Lunch Containers with Removable Ice Pack at Amazon.com

These are Fresh Starts 1 cup containers. These make measuring food very easy. I usually eat 1 cup of most foods like chicken, rice, cottage cheese, green beans, etc.

1 cup of chopped chicken or any meat is 4 oz.

I just fill one with a meat, one with a veggie and one with a fruit or cheese and throw them in my lunch bag. No weighing or measuring.

 

Fast Fat Loss Diet

Need to drop some fat… fast?

Use the Military Diet. I dropped about 2 lbs of fat in 3 days. This is a great cutting diet.

The Military Diet is a 3 day low calorie diet…under 1,000 cals.

…and it’s easy to do. Some weight loss diets starve you and therefore make them very hard to do or you have to eat food that tastes plain or doesn’t taste good.

How Much Do Chicken Tenders Weigh?

I see this question on a lot of bodybuilding forums and with no answers…

“How much do chicken tenders weigh?”

Here’s the answer = about 1.5 ounces give or take 1/4 oz.

I eat chicken tenders all the time instead of chicken breasts. Chicken tenders are great for protein and are easy to measure 1 serving. 2 average sized chicken tenders weight about 3 oz which is a normal serving. I eat 3 chicken tenders for 4.5 oz. There’s no need for a food scale.

3 oz of chicken breast or tenders = 23 grams of protein

5 oz of chicken breast or tenders = 38 grams of protein

Chicken tenders are super easy to cook. I just salt and pepper them then cook them in a non-stick skillet with olive oil. I cook them for 3 minutes on each side at medium heat. They’re tender, juicy and tasty!

20 Rep Squats

The absolute best exercise for developing the legs is the SQUAT.

…and high reps work the best for leg development which is why 20 Rep Squats is the best method for adding muscle to your legs fast.

So how does the 20 Rep Squat Method work?

You do 1 set of 20 reps 3 times per week, preferably Mon, Wed & Fridays. That’s it. It’s simple yet Very Effective.

So how much weight should you use for 20 Rep Squats?

Try to start with 50-65% of your 1RM initially but you can go heavier.

If you think this sounds easy….just try it. It is very hard and you will most likely get light-headed and feel nausea.

***Remember to squat down until your thighs are parallel with the floor.

Biotest Flameout Omega 3 Supplement Review

IMG_20160214_154138[1]IMG_20160214_154212[1]

Biotest Flameout Omega 3 supplements are excellent. The EPA (880 mg)and DHA (2200) content are very high, probably the highest I have seen. I have been taking them for about 4 months and I give them 5 stars. This is a high quality Omega 3 supplement that is hard to beat or even equal. The next best Omega 3 supplement is the Vitamin Shoppe Omega 3’s.

Biotest Flameout Omega 3 supplements are expensive as are most top of the line products. A bottle of 90 runs about $33.00. The dosage is 4 pills per day.

Will this Omega 3 supplement make a noticeable difference in your physique? It’s really hard to say…probably not… but it may make a difference in your health in the long run. Omega 3’s are very beneficial to the human body.
