To avoid the #1 killer follow these suggestions, not your doctor

Over 82 million people, or more than 25 percent of the U.S. population has one or more forms of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In 2009 an estimated 7,453,000 inpatient cardiovascular procedures were performed in the U.S. This year <2200 Americans will die of CVD each day, which equates to one person every 39 seconds. In 2008 the CVD mortality was nearly 55% of “total mortality” in the U.S. That means out of more than 2.4 million deaths from all causes, CVD was listed as a cause on almost 1.4 million death certificates (1). It’s safe to say that CVD is a big problem in this country, and is gaining momentum around the world. As other countries begin to consume the same foods and food products

Ribose, an ergogenic aid

Did you know ribose is a naturally occurring sugar that plays a part in resynthesizing adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Manufacturers claim by supplementing with ribose one can increase the speed of ATP synthesis, which would increase energy capabilities, in-turn increasing physical performance. Previous studies have shown ribose supplementation to fall short of what manufacturers claim. In a double blind study (Peveler, et al), 11 subjects were used consisting of 5 cyclists, 4 strength trained athletes and 2 untrained individuals. The subjects were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups. The subjects took the supplement or placebo. No significant difference was found between ribose or placebo

Chest exercises - Smith machine ladder push ups

Cathy is performing this exercise as a finisher, having done two chest exercises prior. Notice her feet are on the ground, and the bar is started at the lowest point on the machine. For the order of the exercises and her abilities this is a perfect set-up. If you're not strong in this exercise, as some aren't, you can start higher on the machine. The higher the angle, the lighter the load. Conversely, if your strong in this movement, you can perform the exercise with chains around your neck for added load. Always remember to never sacrifice form.

The Giant Killer

Danny Padilla is one of the best, most complete bodybuilders ever to grace the stage. At the height of 5’2″, the magazines dubbed him “Giant Killer” because of his ability to defeat much taller competitors. Danny was one of the top bodybuilders in the seventies, winning the 1977 Mr. America and Mr. Universe. However, many argue saying he achieved the greatest shape of his life in the 1981, Mr. Olympia, placing an awe-inspiring but disappointing 5th place. He continued as the Giant Killer through a third decade, placing third in the 1990 Night of Champions, defeating many of the top names of that era, which solidified Danny as one of the most timeless bodybuilding icons.

Creatine, the most Studied Supplement on Earth

Creatine was discovered in 1832 but wasn’t used as a performance supplement by the general public until 1993. It’s been the top-selling supplement since then for one reason, and one reason alone – it works. However, creatine must be of the highest purity for it to function properly and to not cause gastrointestinal distress. It’s imperative to look for pharmaceutical-grade 100% pure creatine monohydrate. Make sure the company you purchase creatine from offers a third party lab result that proves it contains NO fillers, stimulants or sugar. Do not be fooled by cheap brands.
