The benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of
carbohydrate which provides strength and energy to our body, honey is known for
its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce
muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugar plays an important role
in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the
body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is
absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has
also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other
types of sugar.

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! The truth is there is no Alcohol in Cocoa Liquor, it is simply a liquid form of chocolate.

Cocoa for Fighting Oxidative Stress High intensity exercise, among other things, can lead to greater cell damage due to oxidative stress.…
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…
