Building Muscle with EAS

The fall season is almost upon us, but that doesn’t mean we have to let our summer health and fitness routines fall by the wayside.  Didn’t have a summer health and fitness routine?  Well, in that case, the fall season is a great time to start one!

My husband and I are both at a good weight and are in fairly good health.  In my case,  I’m in my early 30s (and holding).  I’ve still got a lot of energy, and I’m fairly strong for my tiny size, if I do say so myself!  But I’m the Skinny Minnie who wants to be Mighty Mouse! Haha!  My husband and I are always working on DIY projects, and I hate it when we get to the parts where I can’t help!

As for my husband, he’s getting ready to turn the big 4-0.  He was actually very sick a few months ago.  And although, he’s mostly recovered, he lost a lot of his muscle strength, and he also struggles with neuropathy, which sometimes keeps him down. He’s always been an active person, and he loves working and fixing things, so I definitely want him to get back in shape, so he can do activities he loves!

Regardless of your age, size, fitness level, and situation, I believe the right supplements and fitness products are a MUST if you really want to get serious about your health and/or fitness levels!  With 42 grams of protein and 24 vitamins and minerals, EAS Myoplex Ready to Drink Shakes are a great choice to help you build muscle and strength.

Did you make any fitness or weight loss goals for this year? I’ve always been a thin person, but I don’t always keep healthy habits, so I’m trying to make improvements in my overall diet, health, and fitness this year.  For me, exercising is the most challenging.  I have to stick with activities that aren’t too time consuming, are fairly easy, and are actually fun.  Some activities I’ve enjoyed for exercise include aerobics/dance, disc golf, and walking/jogging.  Of course, there are two things which can make these and other physical activities more enjoyable: a companion and music! Today I’m going to show you a great new way of fusing fitness with technology for a smarter workout! [Read more…]

Accelerating Muscle Recovery So You Can Stay Active

stretching muscles

If you’ve recently started a rigorous workout routine and your muscles are already feeling fatigued and sore, you might want to take it easy. Research says that your muscles take more time to repair themselves if you’re not allowing enough time for recovery in-between strenuous workouts. Attending high intensity classes are excellent for your health, but they can be hard on your muscles. Allow enough time for recovery by eating the right foods, resting, and taking supplements such as L- glutamine and your muscles will be able to handle your workout routine in no time.

 Enough Time to Recover

Are you providing your muscles enough time for recovery in between each workout? If you’re not, this should be important, especially if your workouts are rigorous or you are feeling some extra tightness in certain muscle groups. Resting in-between high intensity workouts will allow your muscles time to heal, as opposed to causing an ongoing injury.

 Add L Glutamine to Your Supplement List

If you’re currently not taking L glutamine supplements now is a good time to add them to your daily vitamins. Since glutamine is one of the most common amino acids found in the body and more specifically muscle tissues, it is a pertinent fuel that assists with muscle contraction. Many sports trainers will recommend that you take L glutamine supplements before and after working out so that your glutamine levels don’t drop low. If your levels drop low this could mean muscle injury or not allowing your muscles enough time to repair. Add glutamine to your daily vitamin list and allow your muscles to recover daily.

 Stretch Sore Muscles

Another key to muscle recovery is stretching muscles that are sore. Most trainers will tell you that you should not stretch unless you have warmed up at the gym or wherever you are working out first, which is generally the case. Stretch your muscles after you exercise if you know some muscle groups tend to get tighter than others. Begin with shallow stretches and increase to a deeper stretch depending on how your muscles are feeling that day. Taking certain precautions daily will allow you to maintain a great workout schedule without causing injury to your muscles.
