I’ve gone through hundreds of different workout plans and routines through various articles and information online. Often times, people get scared away when they hear the term ‘Bodybuilding’ because of the connotations it represents. You think of some really tan man or woman that eats like a twig or can bench 500 lbs on steroids with no ability to do anything functional except for walk across a stage. However, just like with marathon running, there’s a lot you can learn from the network of bodybuilders because they live, breath and eat working out. They’re constantly working on pushing their physical limits and are often times some of the top physical trainers and athletes in the world. Bodybuilding, in my mind at least, means exactly that; you’re building yourself the body you ultimately want to have. Since 2000, I’ve been going to Bodybuilding.com and leveraging them for their wealth of information about supplements and workouts. Even for a high school freshman pipsqueak like me I was able to start learning about various lifts, workout routines, proper diet and supplementation and could really dig in and get a comprehensive search for products. I’ll show you how I use Bodybuilding.com to workout and eat smart.
One of the greatest area’s of focus I made when I transitioned over to the Paleo diet was to refocus my nutrient intake. My parents taught me very early on about the benefits of taking vitamins and minerals to help supplement your diet. My first encounter with this was in High School when I ran Cross Country and Track and discovered that I was always tired no matter how much rest or food I ate. After consulting with my coach, we determined that because my Mother was a vegetarian, and only ate meat one or two times a week, I may not be getting the necessary iron intake. After about a week of being on an iron pill my exhaustion had completely disappeared, it was like magic! When I started the Paleo diet I had my current supplements examined and adjusted based on my needs. The health and supplement industry is one of the largest and there’s certainly a lot of options. I’ve used several, but the large majority of my purchases come from PureFormulas. Today, I’ll explain why PureFormulas is my goto for my supplementation needs.
