Since I’ve bought it, this tube of “Muscle Rub” by Tiger Balm has not left my gym bag. Or my school bag. Or my side at all. I swear by it, and though I understand it’s just a pain reliever, when your IT band continues to act up and you’ve got muscle aches and pains, there’s nothing like this stuff. Nothing even comes close in comparison– not even your standard ibuprofen. So, how does it work, and why do I love it?
One major issue I take with physicians and the medical industry as a whole (and I say industry because medicine has been completely commercialized) is that everyone immediately jumps to prescribing drugs to fix their problems. Not only has this contributed to impending public health crises like the opioid epidemic and antibiotic resistance, a lot of the time, significant research has been done on alternative, natural medicine that successfully treat a wide range of illnesses and symptoms. In this post, I’ll focus on a few more natural supplements that help with joint pain, and how/why they’ve been found to do so. Continue reading
I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while– probably for a few months, ever since I discovered the magic that is L-glutamine. I was working a shift at a GNC the second day after leg day, when the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) are at their worst, and a friend of mine fed me two l-glutamine tablets. Ten hours later, my legs felt almost completely better. And no, I’m not making this up. Continue reading
There are certain products out there that line the shelves of health and fitness stores and promise you that you will “lose weight,” “digest your food better,” and “cleanse your body!” Well, they’re empty promises. Don’t waste your money. I’ll keep it short and sweet and tell you why. Continue reading
Hi guys! A little bit of a different post today. A friend of mine has made a YouTube channel– and I really think it’s worth mentioning.
His name is Austin Lambert! He’s a bodybuilder, and he’s competing in April. I find his videos to be pretty informational and accurate. Definitely give it a watch. I’m personally a fan of the second video, it’s about dieting. I believe he just posted a new one on supplements. Check it out here!
Yeah, the name of the supplement is literally, “LIT.” LOL. I know, right? It’s made by “Beyond Raw” and is distributed by GNC. The idea behind the products in the beyond raw line is that they’re based on science and formulated in a chemistry lab, without any of the vague names some other supplements include in their formulas/labels. So, do they really work? Is the pre-workout really lit?
I get a lot of questions asking what supplements I take. But I’m gonna preface this post with the fact that supplements are a highly subjective topic. It’s like coffee- some people like it, some people don’t, and the people that do all like to take it differently. So take what I’m saying with a grain of salt. There’s no guarantee that the things I like are gonna be the things you like, or what works for me is gonna work for you.
You know the movie Limitless with everyone’s favorite hunk Bradley Cooper, where he find a magical pill that makes him infinitely smarter and more capable? Well, I found the real life version of that.
Everyone knows what pre-workout is. And if you don’t, it’s because you’ve been living under a rock. I love this stuff. I take it because I’m anemic, so I constantly feel tired. It’s difficult to find motivation to get up and go to the gym, and even harder to get a workout in once I finally pull myself together. But what’s really in this weird concoction, and does it actually work? If you’ve ever glanced at the ingredient list on the side of a bottle of C4, it’s just a jumble of words that normal humans can’t pronounce, and it’s hard to tell whether those are actually doing any good for your body or not. But don’t worry. I did the heavy lifting, so you guys don’t have to. And now I’m gonna share that with you. YOU GON’ LEARN TODAY!
