Training Tools You Need:  The True Squat App

Training Tools You Need: The True Squat App

With the True Squat, the spotters can focus on their jobs of spotting and offering encouragement without having to assess the depth of each repetition. If the athlete is squatting alone, preferably inside a power rack, they will know whether or not they are performing the lift correctly. Also, this ensures that records made in the squat are accurate – there will not be any questionable “high” lifts passed.

Get Nutrition Safely!

Get Nutrition Safely!

One of the greatest marketing ideas in the fitness industry was the invention of the term “energy drink.” The word “energy” sounds much more positive than “sugary sweet,” the primary characteristic of those liquid formulas, which often cost several dollars and often have exactly the same content as soft drinks (with perhaps a bit more caffeine). Let’s take a closer look at the problematic ingredients of most energy drinks, and some healthy alternatives.

A major ingredient in many energy drinks is refined sugar; more specifically, high fructose corn syrup. While it’s true that carbohydrates are used as the primary energy source by athletes preparing for their sports, high fructose corn syrup raises insulin levels quickly and then causes a crash in energy shortly after. What’s more, this type of sugar is linked to type-II diabetes, obesity, cancer, and of course dental decay. 

Then there’s caffeine, another common ingredient in energy drinks. Because caffeine is found in sodas and coffee, it is unquestionably the most used drug in the world. Although there are benefits to taking caffeine before workouts, there are also some precautions to consider. First, some individuals cannot tolerate caffeine well, and any overuse may result in dramatic and undesirable side effects. What is overuse? Consider that while an average soft drink may have 45 mg of caffeine and a cup of coffee 85, some energy drinks that are sold in nationwide convenience stores have as much as 350 mg of caffeine!

While there is a high demand for pre-workout energy drinks, most products on the market are far from ideal. A Pre-Workout drink may be just the answer. Built By Strength Certified Clean - 3rd party certified for safety and quality, BuiltByStrength Pre-Workout is NSF Certified for Sport, meaning it is certified for safety and quality. This is true of less than 1% of all other options on the market today.
