No prizes for guessing which look you prefer…

Most of the time we only see an actor’s work that appears on camera. This, unfortunately, dismisses the fact that an actor’s work begins weeks, if not months in advance. Production meetings and line memorisation is only a small part of the job, with some of the greatest actors and actresses taking dramatic steps in order to fully bring their character to light.

Sometimes these personal transformations can stem from severe and unhealthy methods.

We thought it would be a good idea to take a look at some of the most extreme actor transformations in film and television, how they achieved this transformation, and the potential dangers. As anyone who has tried to change their body type can tell you, the mental challenge is just as important.

5 Tips for Optimal Bicep Training

Time for the guns to be optimised!

We recently looked at how to get big triceps. So naturally, we should look at the stars of the show. The George Michael of Wham!, the Neil Armstrong of Apollo 11, the Batman of the dynamic duo. It’s time to build your bulging biceps.

Whether you call them guns or pythons, you’ll no doubt have flexed in the mirror, and hoped they’d be bigger. Sometimes this hope is misplaced, and in this day and age of “you can’t say anything or body shame anyone”, it’s hard for us to tell you to make them bigger.

But if you do want more bulge, here you go.

My money is on legs…

Are you a leg day lover or do you cherish chest workout more than any other?

Of course, we could ask you one by one, but that would take time, and quite frankly, we can’t be bothered. It’s easy for us to tell which whey protein powder you prefer, as we can look at sales (probably chocolate or strawberry by the way). But knowing whether legs beats arms, is a bit more of a mystery.

So help us beat that mystery now.

6 tips for top triceps

The Andrew Ridgley of muscles…kind of…

One person in any partnership gets more attention than the other. Look at Wham! Granted, George Michael did all the writing and singing, but Andrew Ridgley was just as important…

Ok, he wasn’t really. But that still doesn’t take away from the fact that some things get more limelight than others. The tricep, therefore, is a bit like Andrew Ridgeley, but unlike the former Wham! member, your triceps are far from useless.

So here are the best exercises to build them up, before you go go…

Twitter has given us many things. From the trolling of Hulk Hogan, to rather odd world of One Direction fans. Or “fandom” if you want to get picky.

But annoying Directioners aside, one thing twitter hasn’t given us, is an explanation about supplements. Yes Twitter isn’t responsible for teaching you about what supplement does what, but we thought we’d help out anyway.

So here is what will probably be the biggest trend of the year. Every supplement explained, in 140 characters or less.

Can you get 100%?

Let’s be honest, we wholesalers of helpful sports supplements tend to stock a lot, and with that comes confusion.

Many question will pop up in the mind of the customer: Which creatine is best and is whey isolate the purest form or whey protein powder? We realised this problem, so thought we’d make a quiz to test, and possibly to teach you about the nuances of the supplement world.

Can you get 5 out of 5?
