Rules of On Cycle Support

Last modified: November 20th, 2018 07:44 pmSometimes simply taking supplements to help you down the long and winding road toward self-image perfection just isn’t enough.  For many people, simply taking the correct supplements and hitting the gym a couple of times a week is enough to get where you want to be.  For those of us that are serious gym rats, there is a whole other realm of supplementation that needs to be considered.When you’re working so damn hard to get the body that you want, you’re willing to spend the time, money, and effort on anything that is going to help you give the extra effort and give you an edge.  When you’re loading your body full of supplements that are no-doubt effective, you’re also putting yourself at risk of irregulated hormone levels, side effects that you’ve never had to...

What Is Blood Flow Restriction Occlusion Training?

Last modified: November 8th, 2018 07:00 amIn the past, I’ve heard clients continually say that they wish there was an easier way to add quality muscle mass to their frame without the need to put wear and tear on their body by using heavier and heavier weights to overload the muscles.  Well, with blood flow restriction occlusion training, we all might finally have the answer to our prayers.It’s common for bodybuilders and powerlifters to have beat up joints from years and years of lifting heavy.  When their joints are holding them back from lifting heavy, they think that their mass building days are over and they might as well join a Zumba class instead.  However, with blood flow restriction occlusion training, you can actually use lighter weights and still have the potential to add the quality size you want.  Say it...

Theobromine Side Effects

Last modified: November 6th, 2018 05:01 pmSo you already know that you probably get small doses of theobromine fairly regularly because it’s found in chocolate.  You also know that the levels of theobromine in chocolate aren’t exactly high enough to qualify as actual supplementation so you need to make sure you’re taking something lab-formulated that has healthy levels of theobromine in order to see real benefits.Unfortunately, as is the case with many foreign supplements we try to put in to our body, an increase in theobromine levels often results in some adverse side effects, at least in the short term.  None of the theobromine side effects are too serious and all of them can be treated or prevented.  Most people only suffer from theobromine side effects early on in supplementation and after a couple of weeks, their body adjusts and...
