Review: 

1st Phorm created a male formulated fat burner with many of the same ingredients that have worked in their female focused “Bliss”, but optimized it by focusing on key ingredients with higher dosages. Everyone that I have put on Commander has loved the increased energy, focus, and fat burning. Combine it with Thyro-Drive, a great non-stimulant fat burner for increased results.

You can purchase Commander with Free Shipping @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain

Review: Grade A+. This is a top notch fat burner, thermogenic, focus and mood enhancer.

What Supplements Should I Take?

One of the most asked questions I get as a personal trainer and a sports nutritionist is “Should I take supplements?” or “What supplements should I take?”

Unfortunately this isn’t a quick answer question. A good trainer/nutritionist should take in account like your health condition and your goals.

qtq80-3fv1hi-300x225

Essential Supplements Everyone Should Take:

1. Protein: Whether it is whey, beef, casein, or other variant (I don’t like soy, but this is a different discussion), protein is great for people wanting to lose weight, gain muscle, or maintain. It is convenient and cheap comparative to other sources. Protein that is high quality, low fat, low carb, and high protein levels are essential. That is why I suggest great tasting Level-1 Protein by 1st Phorm. Level-1 Protein is a meal replacement shake (replaces expensive non-nutritious meals with healthy cost effective alternatives). Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

2.  Fish Oil: Fish oil is great for your body, whether you are dieting, bulking, or maintaining. Fish oil is an anti-inflammatory which has characteristics that help prevent cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and arthritis.¹ Fish oil are healthy fats that will actually help you with weight loss. You want to take a fish oil supplement with the highest levels of EPA and DHA. I prefer Full Mega from 1st Phorm. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

3. Multi-Vitamin: As you train harder, you need a multi-vitamin that will work harder for you. Multi-vitamins help replace lost nutrients and supplement nutrients that your body isn’t getting. I like M-Factor Hero and M-Factor Goddess.  M-Factor has a formula for men, and a formula for women. Each come with essential vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and amino acids that can help your body perform at its best! Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

4. Amino Acids: Although Phormula-1 and Level-1 provides 5 grams of Branch Chain Amino Acids per serving, many supplements do not include a good 2:1:1 ratio of  L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine. Amino acids help with recovery, strength, and size. BCAA from 1st Phorm tastes amazing and has a great supplement ratio. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Size and Strength:

1. Creatine: Creatine is one of the most studied supplements in sports nutrition. Creatine is a natural supplement that is found in meat. Supplementing creatine will increase muscle volume, lessen recovery time, and increase strength. Creatine has been proven safe time and time again. Creatine is also very affordable. You can get 100 servings of 1st Phorm Creatine for less than $20. Mix it with your protein shake or drink. It doesn’t matter when or what time you take creatine. Just make sure you take it every day. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

2. Pre-Workout: A good pre-workout will help motivate you in the gym. Some people will look for supplements with a ton of caffeine, while others want a supplement with a mixture of amino acids, creatine, beta-alanine, and nitric oxide boosters. I prefer MegaWatt V2 or it’s non stimulant brother ALPHACre HD. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Fat Loss:

1. Fat Burner: Let me be the first one to tell you that although many fat burners work, they are not necessary for fat loss. Many people have lost a lot of weight without the use of fat burners. What a fat burner can do is help you through hormone regulation, energy, thermogenics, and water management. I am a huge fan of the Royal XXI Systems. The Royal XXI Queen and Royal XXI King Systems help men and women lose weight fast! I have clients on both right now and they are losing fat extremely fast. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Older Men:

1. Testosterone Boosters: Unfortunately testosterone levels for men 30 and over decrease by about 10% every 10 years.² Testosterone helps with strength, sex drive, and overall well-being for men and women. There are many supplements that our over the counter that can help increase testosterone in middle-aged men. Supplements such as D Aspartic Acid, Tribulus Terrestris, and Fenugreek have been shown to increase testosterone. I really like 1st Phorm’s Testosterone boosting series. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Summary:

Supplements are what their name suggests: supplements to your diet and your health. Protein, fish oils, multi-vitamins, and amino acids are essential (in my humble opinion) to men and women who are spending time in the gym. Other supplements can help give you an edge, but may or may not be needed. Check with your personal trainer/nutritionist/doctor before starting any supplements to see if they are right for you.

Why You Don’t Get Ripped Jogging

You spend 30-60 minutes, 5 days a week in your local gym on a treadmill, elliptical, or stair stepper, but you still don’t see the results you want. You lost some weight at first, but now you have loose skin, fat rolls, and not the results that you were expecting…

Why?

When you start jogging, your body will start seeing results the first few weeks, but then your body will stop seeing results. This is because of a few different factors. The first is that your body likes change.  Eventually your body will find that jogging for 45 minutes on a treadmill isn’t that hard. Without a variety, your body will simply get used to moderate cardio and stop burning additional fat. The second and more important issue with jogging is that prolonged periods of cardio can cause muscle wasting and increased body fat! Prolonged cardio can make you look worse than you were before you started!  Your metabolism will slow and you will turn your body into a catabolic state! Men will see lower testosterone levels also. Don’t believe me?

Runs Miles Every Day:

What should I do to lose fat and get ripped?

The first thing that you are doing wrong is that you probably aren’t lifting weights. There is a notion among men and women that lifting weights will make you bulky. This is only true if you eat an excessive amount of food and/or steroids on top of your weight training. If you run a calorie deficient diet, and lift weights, you will burn fat and gain lean muscle. Lean muscle is your foundation for a sexy toned body. Your skeleton is not sexy!

Doesn’t Run Miles Every Day:

runner

What type of workout should I do?

I would suggest weight training focusing on specific body parts each day. Here is the training split I’d suggest:

Day 1: Arms

Day 2: Legs

Day 3: Chest and Shoulders

Day 4: Back

How should I work in cardio?

After 2 or 3 workouts each week, I’d add in 15-20 minutes worth of high intensity interval training. My favorite workout is sprinting for 60 seconds, jogging for 5 minutes, and repeat 3-4 times. This will trick your body into burning more fat and retaining muscle.

Key supplements?

For someone looking to burn fat and retain/add lean muscle mass, I suggest:

  1. Protein– This is a must have. You can either get this from your diet (food), or as a supplement. I’d suggest eating at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight that you would like to weigh. So if you want to weigh 150, eat 150 grams.  Click here to read my review of Level-1 Meal Replacement protein- or order it: http://bit.ly/28TsWbh
  2. Amino Acids– Amino acids play a critical role in recovery and growth of lean muscle mass. I typically take amino acids prior to working out. BCAA by 1st Phorm tastes amazing. Read my review: http://bit.ly/29gJKcf
  3. Pre-Workout– Due to my work schedule, I train clients and workout in the evenings. After a long day at my “real” job, I have to get me a pick-me up prior to going to the gym. It is crazy how much a pre-workout will help you stay focused in the gym. Most pre-workouts will include stimulants and other vitamins and minerals that can give you a boost in the gym. I love MegaWatt HD. Check out my review: http://bit.ly/1rRJ0OV or order it: http://bit.ly/28QGPST
  4. Fat Burner: If you are a male, look at Commander Go Pack. If female, look at Bliss Go Pack. Both are very strong fat burners that shred fat 24 hours a day. I’ve lost 11 pounds in 24 days on the Commander Go Pack. Purchase: http://bit.ly/28R7Lom
