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

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?

  • Should I use Creatine?

  • How Does Creatine Work?

  • What are the side effects of creatine?

  • If I was to take creatine, how much should I use?

  • What time of day is best for taking creatine?

  • What are some of the best creatine supplements on the market?

  • All of the common questions about Creatine Answered.

Weekly Workout For Men: Learn the Power Clean, one of the best movements for your traps muscles

Weekly Workout For Men: Learn the Power Clean, one of the best movements for your traps muscles

I first learned of Power Cleans, Hang Cleans and CrossFit when I had stumbled across a video of Annie Thorisdottir performing a workout called DT.

“DT” is by definition:

5 Rounds For Time

This workout is a Hero WOD (“Workout of the Day”), done in memory of a fallen soldier, Law Enforcement or Fireman. DT is done in honor of US Air Force SSgt Timothy P. Davis, 28, who was killed on Feburary, 20 2009 supporting operations in OEF when his vehicle was struck by an IED.

Weekly Workout For Men: This is the time of the year to bulk up

Weekly Workout For Men: This is the time of the year to bulk up

This is the time of the year to beef up.

While most men hibernate and stay cuddled in their beds to get warm, you will be beasting it up in the garage or gym that you go to.

In order to do that though, you need to prepare yourself for the long haul. It’s going to be a grueling winter that is going to be punching you in the face. Not to mention, the holiday parties, with all the Christmas cakes and cookies that will be beckoning you.

You must resist.

Weekly Workout: A couple women, Rucking, Bench Press, Double under and Hang Cleans.

Most people make fitness far more difficult than it needs to be. It’s a lifestyle, a marathon so to speak. Unfortunately, a lot of people have turned it into something it isn’t, and they prey on peoples insecurities to sell them a product.

The truth is that if you do something every day, and do it in a progressively more challenging format you will inevitably reach your goals. Consistency and discipline are the keys to everything.

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

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.

Discipline for the morning: How to build strength, conquer your goals, and stay positive throughout the day

Discipline for the morning: How to build strength, conquer your goals, and stay positive throughout the day

Those days are over right?

WRONG.

I’m on a mission to debunk that. I believe men are warriors, and they have it in them to be great in all aspects of their life.

It starts with a Mindset Change, a belief that you are capable of being more than you think…being the man that you are made to be.

Men have bought into a lot of lies that have crippled them.

Rise of the Machines: Why free weights and garage gyms are the better option if you want to build strength and muscle

Rise of the Machines: Why free weights and garage gyms are the better option if you want to build strength and muscle

Have you ever walked into a gym and had no idea where to begin?

I have, in fact I did it for pretty much my whole life until around the age of 30.

I didn’t really know how to “work-out” or “exercise”. Up to that point I had just played sports, but never lifted weights or made physical fitness a practice in my life.

When I did start making it a practice, I tended to stay on the treadmill and weight machines. I wasn’t even using the machines correctly.

I was the guy in the gym fail videos you see on the internet.

Nutrition 101: How to eat, what to eat, when to eat. The best method for weight loss, muscle growth and optimum health.

Are you confused about what to eat?

Do you get frustrated with all of the jargon that is thrown around in the health and fitness industry?

Words like macros, protein, carbs, fats, HDL, LDL, ketones, paleo, vegan, no sugar and gluten free don’t really mean much to you except that you can’t eat certain things, and that’s frustrating.
