um, wouldnt that make it steroids, or should i ask, is it a steroid? No, it's nothing like a steroid. It's a precursor for creatine phosphate (CP). CP is one of the first things a muscle cell uses for energy (it passes the phosphate over to ADP to regenerate ATP). It lasts for only a few seconds be...

I've also looked into creatine. I used it while training as a competitive weightlifter. I decided it wasn't worth it. Here are some things to consider: Creatine needs lots of water intake. It increases the likelihood of cramps from dehydration. Creatine causes digestive problems in some people. Low ...

What is the difference between isotonic and hypotonic? Water or things dissolved in water move across a permeable membrane if there is a lower concentration of the same thing on the other side (osmosis). If there is an even balance of dissolved things on both sides of the membrane, then the water s...

When I went to japan gatorade costed 97 yen for 500 milliliters. Thats about 90 cents. But they didn't have the US flavors, only a clear flavor that has a somewhat related taste to Pocari Sweat and Aquarius. It's just a bit more expensive then the US. If you want a taste like orange gatorade in asi...

I think B Heck is a powerlifter from the pic I've seen (correct me if I'm wrong!). I was a pretty good powerlifter for a few years. I also did bodybuilding before that. I got into the iron sports as rehabillitation for a knee which I injured during a game when I was 17. It was a real eye opener lea...

B Heck, do you know if they have ever done research on people who have completly cut out all processed sugars and processed carbs in their diet, and then seen if the body becomes more efficient after an extended period of time without them in it? If not do you have an opinion on that? The effects o...

As long as you don't damage the growth plates at the ends of your bones, weightlifting will not make you short. Learn to lift with perfect form and technique, avoid risky ballistic movements unless you have a very knowedgable strength coach guiding you, and don't lift more than you can handle for 5 ...

thats the craziest idea i've ever heard you'll shatter your foot and then fall over while the ball stands there Kicking medicine balls to get stronger is too funny. Kicking a ball is not like throwing a shot-put. The force of the kick comes mostly from the speed of your foot before it even touches ...
