No Equipment, no problem: 92 Crossfit Workouts without equipment Written by "> | posted in Workouts | 72 Comments Over the weekend I had a workout in the local park adjacent Kitsilano Beach (an area in Vancouver). We had access to a pull-up station next to the basketball courts, so what workout would make sense? Hmmm, let me think about it. Murph ! Handstands are a great balance exercise and no equipment required Well, this got me thinking what other workouts are good for those of us who find ourselves on the road or have limited equipment options? Here’s 92 Crossfit workouts not requiring equipment: 10 rounds of 10 second “L” sits off the floor “Susan” – 5 rounds for time: Run 200m, then 10 squats, 10 push ups Run 1 mile and at every 1 minute complete 10 air squats, 10 push-ups, 10 sit-ups 10 Rounds for time: 10 burpees, 100 m sprint 10 handstand jackknife to vertical jump, 10 handstand jackknife to tuck jump, 10 handstand jackknife to straddle jump. 10 rounds for time: 10 push-ups, 100m dash

Beta-alanine as a sport supplement Within the past few years, beta-alanine has appeared on the sport nutrition market. Beta-alanine is typically administered as capsules or as a powder that is mixed with a liquid (usually water). While several clinical trials have shown increases in markers of aerobic endurance performance, body composition, and strength with beta-alanine, others have demonstrated no ergogenic benefits. This section discusses beta-alanine as a sport supplement, beginning with its parent compound carnosine. Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of the amino acids histidine and beta-alanine. Carnosine occurs naturally in the brain, cardiac muscle, kidney, and stomach, as well as in relatively large amounts in skeletal muscles (primarily Type II muscle fibers).

L-glutamine: Benefits ? Side effects ? Dose ? L-glutamine is one of the non-essential amino acids in humans. Although the body can produce it, immune system weaknesses and nerve problems can occur during times of high demand. buy the TOP-SELLING L-glutamine on amazon.com Our body uses L-glutamine to create proteins, so-called amino sugars, and to support the production of the super-antioxidant glutathione. The body also uses L-glutamine to Protein intake in relation to performance Adequate protein ingestion is essential for maximizing training-induced adaptations, particularly in strength development. Also, since protein can be metabolized for energy, adequate protein ingestion is of particular concern for athletes in energy-demanding aerobic endurance sports, such as triathlons or marathons. The next sections highlight various aspects of protein intakes for several types of athletes and physical activity preferences—aerobic, anaerobic, and strength training.

SSE #109 Is There a Need for Protein Ingestion During Exercise? Luc J.C. van Loon, PhD Exercise increases muscle protein synthesis rates, allowing skeletal muscle tissue to adapt to the various types of exercise training. Protein ingestion following exercise augments muscle protein accretion by further increasing muscle protein synthesis rates over an extended period of time. The ingestion of dietary protein prior to and/or during exercise stimulates skeletal muscle protein synthesis rates during resistance or endurance type exercise. Allowing muscle protein synthesis rates to increase during exercise training may facilitate the skeletal muscle adaptive response to exercise training and improve training efficiency.

BCAA Supplements Guide: Powders, Benefits & Best Products In the quest to build muscle, people can't seem to get enough protein. We eat copious amounts of chicken, steak, eggs, and fish to get it. We isolate the various types of proteins like whey and casein and make them into powders to take advantage of different digestion rates. We don't stop there though, we then isolate individual amino acids that protein is comprised of and consume them separately as well.

How to Build Mental Muscle I spring out of bed, pull on my shorts and trainers, slather on sunscreen, and sit down at my computer. It's 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning in mid-May, two weeks before the start of my first marathon, and time for my final big test. On the screen, an empty road disappears into a blue sky dotted with drifting clouds, rendered in simple '80s-video-game graphics. With a sigh, I empty my mind and click a blue button marked "start," bracing myself for the drudgery ahead.
