By now you have probably heard of “Bulletproof coffee.” If not, it is basically when you add butter to coffee.
It works a bit like pre-workout supplements because of the caffeine in the coffee, there are good fats which are great for bulking and when you add coconut oil your get some helpful medium chain triglycerides (MCT).
But what about with PEANUT butter?
See our mention in a cycling mag!
Cycling? Cardio? What is this madness you speak of? OK, a lot of us tend to focus on strength and muscle, but that doesn’t mean we don’t take an interest in sport on a wider scale.
Which is why we’re excited to announce that Cycling World have published findings from our Supplement Survey.
Gym fails are a staple of the internet these days, our Facebook feeds are full with them, and in general, what isn’t funny about someone dropping a bar on their foot?
But what about poor form? Our main bag might be supplements, but the gym is where the real magic happens. That wonderful PB, that awesome squat,and oh, that terrible back breaking deadlift. Yes form can be an issue.
So what to do about it? Instead of us telling you, you can tell us. Enjoy!
A terrible, true story
The trials and tribulations of the workplace are plentiful. “Is our email down?” “Have you seen my hammer?” “Who has the pricing gun?” Whatever your line of work, you’ll overcome such problems daily.
But no matter what your job is, if you’re into weight training, there will be many, many more problems that you have to overcome.
For your pleasure, we’ve outlined 9 workplace worries for weight trainers from 3 different walks of life. Enjoy!
THAT’S AN ORDER!
Last week we asked our many #SCElite athletes why they work out. Guy Allen took things a bit further, and wrote his very own blog!
Not wanting to bin his words, or condense them unnecessarily, we decided to give him that blog. Guy has come a long way, from inboxing us on Facebook with questions about fat burners, to being part of the awesomest fitness team in the world.
Here, therefore, are 7 reasons why Guy works out.
Bacon. The very mention of the word is likely to make the most hardened fitness fanatic salivate uncontrollably. A major weekend pleasure and perhaps the culinary cherry on top of any meal. But, can you eat it every day?
Everything in proportion is the age old guidance. Yes A chocolate bar won’t kill you, but 250 could put you closer to a fat riddled demise. So is there a way to enjoy bacon on a regular occasion without turning into the very animal you’re eating?
We thought we’d see if we can make bacon healthy.
Why do you workout?
We might rabbit on about all sorts of supplements here (which should come as no surprise really). But at the core of our talk about whey protein and discount sales, there is the also one overriding desire. To look after our bodies.
So why do we workout? We thought it would be a good idea to get some different reasons from keen as mustard athletes.
We asked our Elite Athletes why they work out, and this is what they said.
Save pennies without eating rubbish!
“I can’t afford to eat healthily.” That’s an excuse we hear and read about pretty much every day of the week in some form or another. And here at Supplement Centre, we simply shake our heads.
Because for us, we know you can eat well on a budget. Whether “well” means portion size or nutritional goodness, it can be done. But there’s no good in us continuing to shake our heads.
If you want gains, bigger portions or just a healthier diet, here are 7 top tips for eating well without getting a loan from Wonga. You probably know where to get cheap whey protein, so now you can get cheap eats!
7 days, 8 days? Who knows!?
Today is Tuesday, which is the 2nd day of the week. Or, if you like a fraction, the 2nd 7th of a 7 day week. But are there actually seven days in a week or is eight?
We’re well aware that the bodybuilding community can sometimes be a bit opinionated. We’ve seen people threaten serious violence over which protein powder they think is the best!
But these guys took it a bit too far. Yes they argued over how many days in a week. Giving bodybuilders everywhere a bad name!
“This year I am going to join a gym.” We’ve all heard that before,you could have even said it yourself. Whether we like it or not, the gym is about to get busy.
