Sleeping 8 Hours Is a Must

Posted by Reena Ashwina | 7:04 AM | | 2 comments »

If you come to fitness or bodybuilding, rest is the most important tool for us to reach our goal. Whatever your goal; building muscles, lose fat, keep fit, bulking up, etc. If you workout properly and take expensive supplements and lack of sleep, you still cannot grow or meet your goal.

The most important process in fitness is recovery and that can be done without any disruption during sleep. So, getting at least 8 hours sleep is necessary to build up muscles or bulking up. The body unable to repair trained muscles and you will lack of focus and strength on next day workout if you lack of sleep.

So, go and buy some extra pillows, get some good comforter, if still not enough, hug your wife or girlfriends, turn on the air condition to 16 degree Celsius and sleep well for tomorrow’s battle.

Holding up 5 Seconds Rules the Muscles

Posted by Reena Ashwina | 6:42 AM | | 2 comments »

The main goal of any exercise you do is to make it sore and push a lot blood rush to the particular area. Blood rush will bring more nutrients and oxygen to the training area that helps to give energy and recover.

For example, when you do extension; heavy contraction happens when your leg is straight. Once you’re in straight position, hold up for 5 seconds max (possible at least 3 seconds) and slowly bring it down. Repeat these steps. I’m sure you can’t do more than 8 reps.

You will feel quads are hotter and your brain will feel like going mad. This is what I call 5 seconds rules. Once you manage to apply these steps in all your exercise heavy exercise patterns, I’m sure you will not regret from the results you get in very short period of time.

The best is to keep max 4 sets for each muscles using 5 seconds rule. Other sets perform as normal. Otherwise, you might over train, which is not so good also.

Newton’s Law Applied in Bodybuilding

Posted by Reena Ashwina | 6:00 AM | | 1 comments »

Newton thought us every action has the equal reaction force. So, when you hitting hard in any workout, your muscles are reacting equally as hard as you train. Just look at it this way:

1. If you lift low weight, the pain is low. Lower chemical and muscle contraction happens contributes to lower growth range.

2. If you life heavy, the pain is greater. Higher chemical reactions and muscle contraction happening around the muscle groups you are training that contributes to higher rate of growth range.

Next time, hitting the gym, try to remember our Newton’s law and apply it on dumbbells and plates. I’m not so sure you will gain, but definitely if Newton alive, he would be so proud.

Jay won Vic at 4 points difference basis. Do you think that he can do that again? During these 2 years, Victor gain more popularity compared to Jay. If you go to any bodybuilding forum, youtube, etc, I'm sure you must heard his name more than anyone in this field. My bet is Vic to be a winner.

I'm sure Victor Martinez will give close fight to the Muscletech crown owner Jay Cutler. Looks like Muscletech need to attract their close competitors like Victor Martinez and Dennis Wolf in their lab test white rat list. Not sure MHP, BSN and Nutrex willing to let go theirs.
