Over the years we have heard many people say the same or similar. Whilst the idea sounds sensible enough, is there any real truth to weight lifting/bodybuilding and gymnastics bad for the growing body? What does the studies/science say? Lets add some science to the debate. Lets look at Gymnasts first. In a recent 2013 study we are told: “(1) Adult height or near adult height of female and male artistic gymnasts is not compromised by intensive gymnastics training. (2) Gymnastics training does not appear to attenuate growth of upper (sitting height) or lower (legs) body segment lengths. (3)...Read More

Why Is Shoulder Flexibility Important? Whether you’re new to lifting or experienced, and whether you’re currently experiencing shoulder problems or not, we recommend that you start doing stretching exercises every week.

However, it’s just as important to maintain the flexibility of the...Read More

Thats 3 times more than she though she was eating, showing how people time and time again calculate wrongly!...Read More
Still think a diet drink is work of the devil and will kill you? More Evidence that Aspartame WILL NOT Kill You! Despite two recent meta-analyses indicating that the use of low calorie sweeteners (LCSs) is associated with lower BMI and sustained weight loss (refs 1 & 2), some researchers still maintain that LCSs can negatively affect weight loss efforts by messing with blood glucose control. As such, in a study published last week Higgins and colleagues assessed the effects of three daily aspartame doses (0, 350, and 1050mg/d) on glycaemic response, appetite, body mass and...Read More

Our bodies weren’t designed to have such great forces pushing against its these very forces and the reaction to them that causes the muscle growth we so desire. The question we all want to shout out loud….. How can I get faster results? This might seem counter intuitive to this article, as a true...Read More
