To anyone outside of the bodybuilding world, there is a common assumption made about the eating habits and diet of a bodybuilder.
“They eat the same thing over and over, it’s boring, they can’t enjoy their diet, but it’s what they have to do to get ripped and huge!”
Hell before I started competing as a bodybuilder (I’m now in my 3rd year) I thought along the same lines.
What will you be eating?
You’ve smashed your workout. You’re feeling good and those PBs were left trembling. So now what do you do?
You might have a whey protein isolate shake, you might get on the foam roller, but what should you eat?
Here’s our six best post workout foods.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
St Paddy’s Day is here! That could well mean you skip leg day, don’t go on that 10k run or that you, in general, get a bit too into the fun and frivolities of the day.
Guinness is no doubt the go to drink today, with many trying it for the first time. But regular Guinness drinker or not, you may want to know how it will affect your general fitness.
So, we have put together a piece, to see if we can justify Guinness for gains?
The Super Bowl is nearly here.
In the United States it’s the main sporting event of the year, pulling in over 100 million viewers just in the US alone and viewing figures are picking up in the UK too.
To keep game time healthy, we got the very northern, very traditional Dominic Swift, to put together healthy alternatives to snacks frequently shoveled down the gullets of our sometimes overweight, often over emotional, cousins across the pond. And while we’re at it, he’s got the correct terms for you too.

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!
Can you name the gym?
Like a good gym session, a classic Arnold Schwarzenegger film or a delicious chocolate protein shake, all good things have to come to an end.
2014 has been a momentous year. England failed to do anything positive at the World Cup, Phil Heath won Mr Olympia (again) and we reached 50k fans on Facebook…
But what has been the most clicked, most read and most shared fitness goodies of 2014?
Here is the top 10.
What’s he so happy about?
Halloween, clocks changing and the leaves all starting to die. Yep October has been and gone, so now we’ll look at what happened on the world wide web.
We’ve got a man with a suspiciously large forearm, “proof” that alcohol can be consumed and not hinder performance, and a rather handy leg day workout.
It’s the fitness roundup for October.
Raphael, Ronnie and rather rotund men
There is a lot of info on the internet. Some of it good, some of it bad.
So we thought we’d do the hard work and round up our favourite posts from the last month.
Here you’ll find a man who has only eaten pizza, some exploding biceps and a full on critique of why we lift.
There’s only one Kumel Heer
Kumel Heer is a bodybuilder. But because of he is a Sikh, he cannot compete.
We wanted to know what challenges he faces and to get behind the man with the impressive beard, muscles and attitude. We also wanted to know how he has met Ronnie Coleman, Phil Heath, Sheru and many more.

Get the most of your workout with the right pre-workout supplements
Pre-workout supplements are designed to give your body an extra boost of energy to prepare it for intense exercise. They usually contain a mixture of nitric oxide, amino acids, and stimulants such as caffeine.
Nitric oxide opens up the blood vessels and gets the blood pumping. Amino acids are the building blocks of muscle building. Caffeine gives your body a wake-up call.
