Reduce Muscle Soreness and Get Back in the Gym!

Posted by VPX Sports on Aug 15, 2011 9:56:00 AM

Whether you’re a newbie or an experienced bodybuilder at some point you are undoubtedly going to experience DOMS, or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. What is DOMS you ask? DOMS is the pain and discomfort often felt in the 24-72 hours post-exercise. It differs from regular muscle soreness in the duration, severity, and causal factors – where regular soreness is likely due to microtrauma to muscle fiber structure and is experienced immediately after training, tapering off in less than two days. Some trainees feel that muscle soreness is a sign that they have actually done hard work, and if they don’t feel slight discomfort than they have not trained hard enough. Regardless of how hard you train, any new/different stimuli to the muscle will likely produce the same result; pain and discomfort.

Amino Acids for Muscle, Health, and the Mind

Posted by VPX Sports on Jul 15, 2011 10:09:00 AM

PERFORMANCE ESSENTIALS – Why Power Shock™ will shock your muscles into  major hypertrophy

The essential amino acids are those specific amino acids that you need to consume in your diet because your body doesn’t naturally make them.  If you slept through your college chemistry class, remember that amino acids are the building blocks of protein.  So for any given protein that you consume, whether it’s beef, chicken, eggs or beans, the amount of each specific amino acid differs.  Most plant sources of protein for example do NOT have enough of the essential amino acids (EAA’s): that’s why they are incomplete proteins, and that’s why most athletes are carnivores.  We love our meat because they are full of the EAA’s.  VPX’s Power Shock™ contains the entire compliment of EAA’s.  In fact, you’ll learn that Power Shock™ is great for the muscles, the brain and overall health.

Why Whey Protein?

Posted by VPX Sports on Jul 11, 2011 10:05:00 AM

Phase III: Recovery Series

If you remember correctly, the purpose of consuming whey protein post-workout is because whey protein is immediately absorbed into the body as compared to egg proteins and/or caseins with which absorb at a considerably slower rate. For this reason, those proteins are termed "slow release." They do not actually release slowly, but because they all absorb at a slightly different pace, your body is absorbing proteins for a extended period of time, as opposed to if you consume whey protein and get your full shot of protein all at once. The fact that whey protein absorbs immediately is the catcher here. Remember that oh-so-important window of opportunity? Doesn't it make sense that if you have only an hour to get the nutrients your body needs, you would want to consume the fastest absorbing nutrients around? This is also why you should be taking your carbohydrates in liquid form, because they are readily available for use.

Posted by John Romano on Apr 26, 2011 2:13:00 PM

It has been three months since l began the NO-Shotgun/ Synthesize stack (NO-Shotgun pre workout, Synthesize immediately after). Wile I've been stetting PRs (personal records) continuously during this last three months, last week I set three PRs and this week l already broke one of them (it's only Tuesday). The only thing different about my diet/nutrition/supplementation during the last three months is the addition of the NO-Shotgun/Synthesize stack.

How much protein can the body digest?

Posted by VPX Sports on Apr 25, 2011 11:28:00 AM

We all know that we need protein to build muscle, which is what we are all about here at VPX.  The question is - how much protein is too much protein?  There’s been numerous studies looking at this one particular topic, but our aim here is to be efficient at the amount that we take in and not waste those expensive protein powders/shakes if we don’t have to.

There are many types of protein, but in this write up, we’ll look at the main two so you can get a basic understanding.  None of these proteins are better than the other, but they do have their benefits in their own specific way.
