A Powerful Fat Burner Supplement That No Bodybuilder Can Ignore

Fat Burner Supplement

I’m sure we can agree that nothing can replace hard training, diet and cardio, but make no mistake; supplementation has its rightful place in a bodybuilder’s arsenal.  Supplementation can provide you that extra edge you need to push your fat loss in the right direction. fat burner supplement

Let’s face it, whether you are a recreational or competitive bodybuilder you’re either aiming to build lean muscle mass or lose body fat. It’s as simple as that.

In this post let’s cover two of the hottest compounds for fat loss; Chlorogenic Acid found in Green Coffee Bean Extract and Raspberry Ketones.

So what does chlorogenic acid do?

Chlorogenic acid induces thermogenesis, which speeds up metabolism and burns fat. Something we definitely want more of when it comes to losing body fat.

Tea (black, green or white) and coffee contain this compound but unfortunately for all you coffee drinkers out there traditional brewed coffee doesn’t serve as a good source.

The best natural sources for chlorogenic acid are Green coffee beans. In a recent study testing out the effectiveness of green coffee bean extract alongside a placebo; the green coffee bean extract won hands down.

When it comes to raspberry ketones (primary aroma compound of red raspberries), research has shown it can help burn fat faster by causing the fat within your cells to get broken up more effectively.

Now if you’re thinking about just adding more raspberries to your diet think again. The recommended dose is 100mg per day which means you would have to eat 90 pounds of raspberries!

Now you can always buy a green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketones supplement separately and add even more pills to the ones your taking already but there is a better way.

What if you could get both of these fat busting ingredients in one supplement without popping another pill and have it be even more potent?

The good news is the cutting edge supplements company, LG Sciences, has combined these two amazing ingredients into one great tasting supplement and added in the fat mobilizing amino acid L-Carnitine to give you C2K.

lg sciences c2k C2K is an excellent product which I personally use along with 17-Pro Andro for the ultimate fat burning stack. If you want that cut and dry look then look no further then stacking these two powerful supplements.

Not only did LG Sciences combine these two fat busting ingredients into one supplement but best of all they have made it in liquid form for faster and more effective delivery and it actually tastes pretty good.

So why oral dosing?

Oral dosing under the tongue with plant extracts like chlorogenic acid found in green coffee and raspberry ketones has been shown in one preliminary study to be up to 250X more bioavailable than oral capsules.

This means that it is possible that 5 mg of raspberry ketones in LG Sciences unique delivery system may be equal to 1,250mg of a capsule based product. Now that’s some potent stuff!

The C2K liquids hit your body faster than even tablets and there is reason to believe that you actually absorb more with liquids.  That reason is because where a tablet is stuck under the tongue the liquid can be swished around the mouth.

The mouth is one big absorption tissue and the cheeks absorb as much as under your tongue.  That’s why you only need to hold the liquid for 60 seconds for maximal effects. fat burner supplement syringe

You take one dose of 1.5 ml using the oral syringe 4 times per day and it’s best to space your dosages out throughout the day.  For example, 1 dose when you wake up, 1 does after getting ready, 1 dose after your workout, and one dose before you go to bed.

LG Sciences C2K packs a punch so consider adding this powerhouse combo of Chlorogenic Acid, Raspberry Ketones & L-Carnitine to your arsenal to supercharge your fat loss and training.

From Gymnastics To Figure Competitions: New WBFF Pro Alina Andrews

WBFF Pro Alina Andrews Interview

New WBFF Pro Alina Andrews has been involved in sports her entire life, with her talents first taking her to acrobatics.  At an early age she represented her country in the national team, later went on to winning Miss Galaxy Universe, to turning pro in the WBFF; clearly this was the start of something big for this tremendous athlete. figure competitions wbff pro alina andrews

Recently, I had the honor to interview Alina about going pro and what the future holds for this incredible champion.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Alina, your level of fitness is really impressive. So what got you started in acrobatics and fitness?

Alina Andrews: Thank you Marco, I have been involved in the sport since I was 5 years old quickly advancing until I was 12 when I was chosen to compete for my national acrobatics team Belarus.

Bodybuilding Blogger: What motivated you to get into fitness & figure competitions?

Alina Andrews: In 2012 a good friend of mine signed up for the Miami Pro Championship and suggested I do the same. I needed no persuasion and was immediately interested, must have been my winning instinct coming through!

With over 6 months until the competition I was in no rush and my training progression was slow. Then with just 2 months left the reality hit home and I knew it was time to switch it up a gear. I changed my life straight away and trained twice a day every day, focusing on nothing else but winning the competition. I also completely changed my diet analyzing and understanding everything that I put into my mouth.

Once the competition arrived I was in great shape and I took first place in the two categories I entered, Figure and Fitness Gymnastics.

fitness competitions From then on I was hooked and I trained for my next competition, this time learning more and more about nutrition and techniques focused around physical appearance as opposed to performance.

The next competition that came up was Miss Galaxy Universe which took place in Birmingham later that year. Taking first place again in the fitness category it was clear that my training was working and there was no looking back.

Bodybuilding Blogger: It’s amazing to see how much you progressed. As a successful gymnastics champion, fitness model, and WBFF Pro, what do you attribute your success to?

Alina Andrews: This has to be my desire to win and to be the best! I’ve always had it in me; I even love to compete with myself! It doesn’t matter what I am doing I love the challenge and becoming the best just motivates me every day. Without this desire I don’t think anyone can truly be their best.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Excellent! Can you tell us about your training philosophy?

Alina Andrews: Learn to understand your body and learn to push yourself more and more, every day. Overall though you must have fun. Remember why you are doing this; you will be surprised how much motivation it will give you.

Bodybuilding Blogger: So true and great advice, what’s your workout regimen been like?

Alina Andrews: For me cardio is extremely important. I’ve done a lot all my life so my body is used to it, meaning I have to do more and more to keep pushing myself.

Once that is out of the way I get started on working every part of my body. I favor high rep workouts over high weight but that’s just because it works best for me. I like to think that I don’t have any limits and if my trainer tells me to do 100 reps I will do 300 just to prove I can!

Here’s a short video clip with some training and posing:

Bodybuilding Blogger: Nice! With a busy schedule with training, coaching, photo shoots not to mention preparing for competitions, how do you stay on track with your nutrition on and off season?

Alina Andrews: Nutrition is a lifestyle for me so I never think of it as a chore. I also never worry about it taking time to prepare my meals. It doesn’t matter if I’m on or off season, I will always plan ahead and prepare. I think the key for me was learning so much about my body and how it reacts to different food, this has made it great fun and I feel like I am always learning.fitness competitions training

Bodybuilding Blogger: Let’s talk about cardio. What type works best for you and how is it different during off-season compared to pre-contest?

Alina Andrews: For me running is best. I don’t enjoy it and it’s not fun but the rewards are good so I dig deep and keep at it. I think that it’s the shaking when running that helps but whatever the reason it gives me great tone.

I also do a gymnastics session twice a week. This is great for core strength and flexibility but there is also a lot of cardio there. The advantage of this is its actually great fun too, definitely recommended for anyone that hasn’t tried it.

Overall my training split is 2 parts weights to 1 part cardio. Although I keep the intensity high on the weight training so the heart is beating fast and it’s effectively more cardio.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Now that’s a serious training regimen! What was it like earning your WBFF Pro card? Is there an upcoming show you plan to compete in?

wbff pro alina andrews Alina Andrews: It was a great achievement for me and I was filled with joy. I felt like all my hard work had paid off and it gave me great energy to look for my next challenge. The WBFF is a great organization and it feels amazing to be part of their elite group of Pro athletes. The whole show is not only a huge challenge but it is immense fun and I will definitely be back to win the WBFF World Championships in Las Vegas 2013.

Bodybuilding Blogger: If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring figure pro, what would it be?

Alina Andrews: Never give up! This is your life and you CAN do anything. Make your dreams come true, they are yours if you really want them.

Bodybuilding Blogger: Alina, thank you so much for sharing your time with us and for being such an inspiring and motivating athlete.

Bodybuilding Blogger.com wants to personally thank our good friend Alina Andrews for this interview. She is an energetic, outgoing, driven, dedicated athlete and coach with a focus on helping others become the best they can be.

How Thick Bar Training Develops Super Strength and Muscle Growth

Thick Bar Training with TrueGRIPs

Ever heard of the phrase ‘You’re only as strong as your weakest link?’

For bodybuilders, power lifters, strongmen, MMA fighters and athletes it’s generally their grip strength. Unfortunately, most people don’t focus on developing the strength in their hands and forearms. thick bar training

Grip strength happens to be the one thing that may be holding you back from maximizing true strength and muscle development.  While you train so hard on building up all the muscles in your body, grip strength always gets left behind.

It becomes your weakest link.

Now if you think that all you need to do is more wrist curls think again! With almost 35 muscles involved in gripping activities, doing wrist curls will only hit a small percentage of these muscles.

So what can you do?

It’s an old trick that strongmen and bodybuilders used back in the 60’s to achieve amazing strength levels and massive muscle growth.

Today, it’s used by top pro bodybuilders, athletes, MMA fighters, SWAT Teams, and Members of the Military from all around the world.

It’s called Thick Bar Training.

Some of today’s most highly respected strength coaches swear by it. Charles Poliquin, trainer of over 400 Olympic athletes said, “I am a big believer in using thick-handled barbells/dumbbells.”

Thick bars are just like standard barbells and dumbbells, but they’re just thicker. The standard ones have a one inch diameter but with thick bars you’re talking about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.  (Some look more like truck axles) thick bar training grips

I’m sure you would agree with the regular 1 inch bar, it’s pretty simple to wrap your whole hand around and support it in the palm of your hand. But with thick bars it’s a whole new ball game!

With thick bar training you increase muscle fiber activation in your grip, forearm, biceps, and triceps. You’ll develop levels of upper body strength you have never experienced before!

But there is a drawback with thick bars. They are extremely rare to find in local gyms because they are so expensive. The good news is there is an option that can give you the same function as a thick bar but without the big price tag.

It’s called a thick bar adapter (called TrueGrips)

This week I had the opportunity to test out TrueGrips 2.5 (2.5 inch diameter) by Iron Bull Strength and hands down these grips are absolutely the best! They were simple to use, extremely durable, and best of all they hold othick bar training n like a clamp. No free play or worrying about the grips slipping.

During each of my workouts they functioned exactly as if I were using an actual thick bar.  The finger grip grooves and barrel-shaped design provided excellent support. Within seconds I was able to install them so no complaints on convenience and usability.

The TrueGrips are made of high quality polymer designed to withstand thousands of pounds so no worrying about the grthick bar training iron bull strength ips becoming compressed either.

Now I know there are lots of other grips in the market but I’ve found that either I had to squeeze the grips or they would pop off the bar or some models had too small of an inside diameter limiting its use with some of the equipment in the gym.

Some of the other models were simply just a pain in the butt to put on in the first place. This is especially important if you’re doing a drop set where you really don’t have time to mess around.

All in all TrueGrips are my preferred thick bar adapter and best of all they offer a variety of sizes and colors ranging from 2 inches all the way up to 3 inch grips for the hardcore lifter.

Now remember, at first you might have to lower the weights because you’ll be limited by poor hand and grip strength but that’s the whole root of the problem and these grips are the solution.

In a matter of seconds, you can discover the world of thick bar training and access the muscle growth and strength you’ve been missing out on all these years. Thicker bars equal more muscle!
