Creatine: My experience using it and all of the myths I believed about it

I wasn’t always convinced that creatine was a good choice and in fact believed all the lies about it, and told others the same. Now I’m eating my own feedback.

I have only had positive results using it that I will share with you at the end, and exactly what I use every single day.

I wanted to write this for people who, like me, are on the fence about creatine, and I want to cover as much as I can about it:

  • What is Creatine?

The thief is anything that is preventing you from becoming the man or person that you were made to be. The thief can be your thoughts, your addictions, or any distraction in your life.

GORUCK Tough Challenge: Learn how to train, how to pack, and what you can expect to experience during the event

GORUCK Tough Challenge: Learn how to train, how to pack, and what you can expect to experience during the event

In other words, you can't do it alone, there are no accolades, and you get to suffer.

Who wouldn't want to sign up?

The reality is that the GORUCK Challenge is one of the funnest and most fulfilling things that I have done. It reminded me a lot of those first few days at boot-camp. Everyone is disoriented the Cadre are shouting out commands, some guys have the deer in the headlights look, it's chaos.

When they don't  get the response they desire, then they punish the whole team.The whole event is designed to do one thing. Take a huge group of people from all walks of life and have them go from not knowing each other, to functioning as one unit.

How to build your own workout program: A comprehensive guide to kicking your own butt

I get asked this question all the time; “I don’t really know where to begin. How should I workout, where do I start?”

I love this question for two reasons.

  1. The person is interested in improving their lifestyle and health. They see that they are not meeting their goals, and want to do something proactive about it.
  2. It means that the sky is the limit. They don’t have something built in their head as the precise way to do something, they are willing to listen to advice.

If you find yourself asking this question, then I am so glad because I have a guide on how to help you answer this depending on what you’re fitness goals are.
