Rant and Tip for August 13, 2012
Quote: “Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.” Hunter S Thompson
This is how I feel about my training, and although I am still learning how to execute the deadlift and squat properly I am striving to do them right. I recently failed on a squat attempt of 385 pounds. I honestly feel the strength is there to get the lift and when I looked at the video I knew what was wrong. OK When a fellow lifter looked at the video I should say confirmed what I thought was wrong. I had leaned forward, I did not keep my chest up. That is why I failed in the lift. My depth was great and when I walked out the weight it did not feel to heavy. Not even close.So If I am going to squat I need to do it right and get some numbers I can be proud of.
As with your diet program you need to do it right for you. It is definitely worth doing it right. When I first when on the Atkins program I followed the program to the letter. A friend of mine went on the program at the same time. The difference was he had cheat days and did not truly follow the program. Always saying to me it is to have this and that. I stayed true to the program and lost the weight I needed to lose. He on the other hand is still struggling to lose the weight he has been carrying since I first started the program 3 years ago. "Anything worth doing, is worth doing right."
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have to put this post up about SSP again. I am very happy with the results from the product and think it is well worth the look by my fellow athletes and weekend warriors.
I thought I would talk a bit about Supplementation. I have recently started a consistent program with the product SSP Nutrition
I am feeling stronger than ever and I am hitting Personal Records in
the gym in just 2 short weeks. Of course this is not due entirely to the
supplements but the supplements do allow me to push harder and see the
gains I am striving for. As we work-out our bodies are put under a lot
of stress and we need to replenish the nutrients that are lost in the
process and provide the body with the fuel needed to repair as well.
have used many protein supplements in the past, as well as a pre
workout supplement. I cannot say I have used a post work out supplement
other than a protein Isolate. These supplements can get costly so you
want to make sure you are getting exactly what you need from them.
To show a comparison I thought I would share what I have taken in the past and their cost.
Pre workout; SuperPump Cost. 40.00
Post; BCAA Powder Cost 30.00
Maintain; Isopure Protein Cost 52.99
Rest Day; Creatine Monohydrate Cost 25.00
For a total cost of $157.99 a month. I chose these products because I have seen some success with them.
The difference with SSP
is all of these come as a complete system designed to work together. The total cost of the System is $129.99 if you purchase them by the canister.
As you can see while on the surface this looks expensive as a product
it is actually cheaper than buying the supplements you need as an
athlete separately. You can also purchase the convenience of the packets
which comes in a box to help keep them organized.
I have tried the SSP product before, sometime last year at one of the
National events that I went to. Like most people I looked at the cost
and thought holy cow that is expensive. Now that I break down the cost
and take in consideration what I had taken in the past I realize it is
A little about the products individually
Pre formula addresses critical needs for the performance athlete.
Before and during the first half of the workout it’s crucial to ingest
strategic amounts of proper nutrients. The Pre provides safe and natural
supplementation to hydrate, enhance energy levels and prevent burning
coveted muscle during the workout and performance competition. It’s what
the body needs. The Pre keeps the athlete focused and hydrated while
maintaining lower body temperatures for maximum workout periods with
greater intensity. The latest research shows that taking essential amino
acids before a workout increases muscle protein synthesis and
anabolism. This, along with the hyper-hydration technology of our
creatine and glycerol combination, supercharges the anabolic
environment. Containing fat burning properties, The Pre enhances net
gain of lean muscle and net loss of unwanted fat.
