Coffee | Good or Bad?

I love articles by Kevin DiDonato. His articles always teach us something new. 
Sharing some information from one of his articles.


The smell of a fresh cup of coffee in the morning can be mesmerizing. For some people like me, coffee is the perfect way to wake them up in the morning. 

And for others, coffee can be a FEAR.
Why?
The consensus on coffee and your health is blurred. 
In fact, there are studies for both sides one for and one against coffee for health. 

Coffee is full of powerful antioxidants and phenols which may reverse aging and may slow age associated disease process. 
Coffee may also reduce sex hormones like testosterone and estrogen and improve glucose metabolism. Coffee also has caffeine which may be addictive. But caffeine may also enable your body to do wonderful things. For one caffeine is a stimulant to your central nervous system which keeps you alert and functioning. And stimulation of your CNS may also increase metabolism.


You may be able to BURN more FAT by drinking COFFEE!

Coffee may also increase performance in endurance events. 
Plus, coffee may reduce the risk of developing Type II diabetes, colon cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and may reduce your risk of gallstones.

Cocoa | Benefits

Cocoa, which comes from the cocoa bean, has been shown to have protective health benefits when ingested in moderate amounts.  Some potential benefits of cocoa have been shown in cardiovascular health and improvements in eye and brain function. 
Yes, no mistake about it, I did put cocoa and weight loss in the same sentence.  Cocoa is the non-fat product of cocoa liquor also known as 'crème de cacao'. Now, when you see 'liquor' you may say there's Alcohol in it!

Add Intensity To Your Muscle Building Workout

One of the biggest difficulties facing bodybuilders is how can they be sure that all muscle fibers have been recruited and exhausted during a given exercise and it is only by achieving this that muscle gains can be maximized.

Few techniques that will help to increase your muscle growth:

Increase resistance
Increasing the weight lifted in meaningful increments ensures the muscle is pushed beyond its previous point of failure thus maintaining the muscle building process. Aim to increase the weight when you reach six to eight reps and failure does not occur.

Change the exercise
To achieve maximal gains, all muscle fibers in a body part must be trained. Introducing a new exercise will stimulate growth.

Reduce rest intervals
Giving the muscles less time to recover before exposing them to further work has the effect of increasing intensity.

Introduce supersets
This involves performing two exercises for the same muscle group without a rest interval. This means you have to utilize different muscle fi…
