Top tip for muscle growth

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Here's a great tip for muscle growth - and you can put it into action the next time you're in the gym: it's SLOW NEGATIVES.

What's slow negatives? Like it sounds, it means you perform the return half of your rep very slowly, such as the downward portion of a bicep curl. And for even better results, try pausing for 3 seconds halfway down. This will really stimulate new muscle growth.

Raw Veg Juicing update

Thursday, February 25, 2010

The more I use my manual juicer, the faster I get. It's fiddly and slow the first time round, but as with everything, practice makes perfect.

It's crucial to dilute the juice in water, at least 50% water, otherwise it's just too concentrated.

My current favourite is English greens (cheap from any large supermarket), carrots, ginger. In the summer when radishes are more widely available I'll add them too.

Feeling more energetic after each dose of raw juice!

  Why can't you add apple or oranges or any kind of fruit for that matter to make the veggies taste better, instead of diluting the veggie juice with water ?
