IRON ADDICTS GYM SCANDAL – MY THOUGHTS
In the midst of this Iron Addicts Gym scandal my opinion is this, leave all those steroids, extra powders, supplements, and all that fake stuff alone. Trust the process of you eating right and working out right to make your body to what you envision.
This post will not be about bashing the people who were reportedly involved. My opinions are reserved for that matter. That’s a legal case that no one knows the details on other than what’s being thrown out in the media. Who knows what the truth really is and what truth “they” want us to believe. I could go into a whole rant about that but that’ll be another time.
Everyone is looking for a quick fix and that’s not the answer. Hard work and dedication is undefeated in the game of life. Just take your time and trust the process. All these short cuts will bring you to a dead end quick.
HAVE I TAKEN SUPPLEMENTS?
Yes! Of course lol. When I was younger I use to take whey protein and nitro tech. I saw my bench press increase quick. I was loving it. It caused my body to accelerate in growth at that time. Maybe I was taking too much at the time. Long story short it was a lot of protein for my kidneys to filter out. I had some issues but I believe a lot of that had to do with the fact I was over weight at that time. Those issues led to me having high blood pressure.
I gained a lot of weight when I stopped working out but kept taking the whey & nitro tech. I felt it was a meal replacement. It kept me satiated for a while. I thought I was using it right. The fact is you have to be really active when you’re taking that stuff or else it will backfire. So taking it just because someone else is taking it is not a good look. You better be sure you’re really working out intensively to justify it. I’m talking like hour and a half or more high intensity workout justification. If you’re not about that life then don’t worry about taking that stuff.
WHAT ABOUT BCAAs?
WHAT ARE BCAAs?
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) refers to three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAA supplementation, for people with low dietary protein intake, can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. It can also be used to prevent fatigue in novice athletes.
WHAT IS LEUCINE
High leucine foods include cheese, soybeans, beef, chicken, pork, nuts, seeds, fish, seafood, and beans. The recommended daily intake for leucine is 39mg per kilogram of body weight, or 17.7mg per pound.
WHAT IS VALINE
Valine is an amino acid involved in curing metabolic and liver diseases. Valine also plays a role in regulating absorption of other amino acids. High valine foods include cheese, soybeans, beef, lamb, chicken, pork, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, mushrooms, and whole grains.
WHAT IS ISOLEUCINE?
L-Isoleucine is one of the essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body and is known for its ability to help endurance and assist in the repair and rebuilding of muscle. This amino acid is important to body builders as it helps boost energy and helps the body recover from training.
Top 10 Foods Highest in Valine
Foods That Are Highest in Isoleucine & Leucine
Some people take them for various reasons as other supplements but the articles I provided above you can find all these things in food. Anything that has to be broke down into powder form like that in my opinion, you put yourself at risk for them to add a lot of things you don’t know.
Everyone is going to get enough of over promoting someone just because they may have a bigger platform. This isn’t about comparison. Start promoting your friend(S) on social network who you see and know who’s doing the right thing when it comes to health & wellness.
