Breakfast: the Most Important Meal?

A recent article published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) argues that previous studies used to portray breakfast as the most important meal of the day may be biased. A case for breakfast has been built on the idea that spreading out meals throughout the day and eating little and often can help to speed up metabolism. These opinions have been built upon the fact that some studies also showed that obese and diabetic people skipped meals more often than normal weight or thin people. This research has resulted in the thought that having breakfast was essential for maintaining a healthy body weight. The bodybuilding community has embraced breakfast as the most important meal of the day.

HIIT vs SS

Protein or nutrient timing could be defined as the consumption of protein/nutrients in and/or around an exercise bout. This has been a favored strategy adopted by bodybuilders to optimize numerous performance- and muscular-related adaptations. Indeed, a number of researchers have suggested that the timing of nutrient consumption has greater importance to these adaptations than the quantity of food and macronutrient ratio of the diet. The most researched aspect of nutrient timing lies around the consumption of protein immediately after exercise.

HIIT vs SS

It has been widely accepted that training to concentric muscular failure is needed to maximize exercise-induced muscle hypertrophy. Muscular failure can be defined as “the point during a resistance exercise set when the muscles can no longer produce sufficient force to control a given load”. However, muscles are not completely fatigued at the point of concentric muscular failure as they are still capable of producing force at a lower weight. Therefore, some have speculated that drop sets (also known as descending sets or breakdown sets), may be an effective strategy to more fully fatigue a given muscle and in turn, further enhance muscular adaptations.

Hormones - Key to muscle-building, fact or myth?

If you read enough about fitness programs/nutrition you will stumble across some article underlying the importance of hormones. Many fitness “gurus” preach about the importance of certain exercise programs that can maximize the release of testosterone, growth hormone and other related molecules claiming it to be the key that will get you results in no time – or so we’re told.

Cardio - HIIT vs SS

10/26/2018 1:01 PM

HIIT vs SS

Cardio is any form of exercise that raises your heart rate. There are a number of different cardio workouts to choose from but given people’s hectic lifestyles, it's common to search for the one that elevates the highest possible fitness levels, promotes optimal fat burning, is the least time consuming and is somewhat enjoyable. This difficult search can cause a divide of opinion amongst gym-goers who tend to have a strong favorite amongst either HIIT (high intensity interval training) or SS (steady state) cardio workouts.

strength vs size

There will always be the debate between “bro’s” in the gym about the optimal number of reps and sets needed for strength and/or muscle growth. The truth is, there never will be a set number for either protocol as it varies individually. Research however, can provide us with a general guideline to start with and it’s up to each individual to experiment accordingly. Many claim that a single set of an exercise (when carried out to failure) is all that’s needed for growth whilst others argue that multiple sets are essential to fully maximize our muscle development. One recent study devised a method to clarify this common debate.

Small changes first – A big mistake which most people make is drastically changing up their entire diet. This can create a host of problems as with new foods you may not know which brands to avoid or which is best but also you may have no idea how to even cook these new foods. Headaches, nausea and other ill symptoms can also occur from withdrawals from certain foods. So hurdles can come unexpectedly which can throw your adherence and motivation off course.
