ePulse2 Strapless Heart Rate Monitor

Impact Sports sent me this amazing heart rate monitor to try out and review. I must say i'm very impressed! It is very simple to use and the display is really clear and easy to see. Most monitors I've used in the past had a grey background and black numbers, not bad, but not as user friendly as the epulse2!

I put it on just before my HIIT cardio, my goal is to reach 80-85% of my heart rate max so that I really burn the body fat. The epulse2 did an outstanding job of monitoring my heart rate and as I said before, the display was super easy to see. If you're in the market for a really good heart rate monitor be sure to try the epulse2!

    Amino Ignite!

    I tried this new product for 30 days. I wanted to do a review on it and share my experience with this product with all of you. Thank you to Chris Allison for sending me this amazing product to try out. I was VERY impressed with this product and will use it again! My biggest problem with my training is endurance. My strength is fine and all goes great but about half way in to my training session I get very tired and endurance fades fast.

    Amino Ignite was a huge help in many areas but especially with endurance! My workouts were nothing shirt of perfect and even hit a few new personal bests! So, let's talk about what it is and what it does.....

    Amino Ignite is designed to improve athletic performance. It helps delay and reduce muscle fatigue and soreness by reducing lactic acid build up while increasing blood flow. Basically less pain MORE gain!




    DAIRY, AND COMMON ALLERGENS. NO BANNED SUBSTANCES.
                                                                           
                                                                         Amino Ignite!

                                                              Directions and Ingredients




    I had phenomenal workouts while using this product. My energy, drive, endurance and stamina were all on point. The label said to start with 1 scoop, so I did and it worked really well but I am 210lbs and compete at 198lbs so 2 scoops was more effective for my goals and needs.

    Be sure to give this product a try. You won't be disappointed!

    Rating:

    Mixability: 10/10 mixed easily
    Flavor: 9/10 flavor was damn good!
    Effectiveness: 10/10 I have not 1 single complaint on this product!

    iSatori Bio Gro

    I saw this supplement on Youtube of all places. The reviews were mixed of course but what I noticed about a majority of the reviews was that no one could really explain WHAT this product did for them. They stated they felt "something" or a bit more fullness/pump while training and throughout the day. I read numerous reviews, watched several videos including the series iSatori made with Marc Lobliner of Tiger Fitness.

    I wasn't sure if I should try it or not. I wasn't exactly "SOLD" on what I had read but I wanted to see for myself and experience this "something" everyone else felt. So, I went online to www.Tigerfitness.com and purchased a total of 4 tubs of this stuff. I wanted to run it for a long time and see if there was any noticeable changes in size, strength and all that. And what better time than Pre-Contest time!

    I took 2 scoops with 1 scoop Humapro first thing in the morning. The second 2 scoops would be right after training with my post workout shake. There isnt a "flavor" to this stuff but its texture is weird and kinda pasty. Sticky in a way, especially when wet.


    Ok, here's what I noticed after 4 tubs of this stuff. Muscle fullness and a pump that lasted all day, every day. My strength didn't increase, size did a bit which I would say the pump/fullness caused that. Now, before anyone starts the "was your diet in check?" stuff, i used the first these tubs pre contest for all 5 shows and I won the overall 4 out of 5 of my shows, so YES my diet and training were in check. 

    I'm totally sold on BioGro. I will be making another purchase for sure. It's totally worth the  $30.00 price tag in my opinion. 

    This is a pic of my transformation from mid January 2013 to October 2013. I used Bio-Gro starting in June and ran it through my Last show in November 2013. I took 5 overall titles home!! 



    What is Bio-Gro?Bio-Gro 5

    Bio-Gro is a true "game-changer" from iSatori. The first to introduce a new breed of designer supplementation called Bio-Active Peptides. You can think of Bio-Gro as "fertilizer for your muscles."

    How does Bio-Gro work?

    iSatori has custom engineered and patented the first and most technically advanced, low molecular weight, micro-concentrated form of Bio-Active Peptides (BAP's) found only in Bio-Gro. Designed to provide a supra-physiological effect that, once consumed, signals the body to amplify its natural protein synthesis process, helping you develop lean muscle and recover faster from intense workouts.

    Why should I use Bio-Gro?

    There are five reasons you should use Bio-Gro:

    1. More concentrated. A more concentrated form of Bio-Active Peptides means less out-of-pocket expense for you, compared to regular protein powders. That is because one small scoop (1.5 grams) of Bio-Gro contains the equivalent bio-actives as 25 grams of whey protein concentrate. That makes Bio-Gro nearly half the cost, on a serving-per-serving basis, of regular whey protein powders.

    2. More convenient. Unlike bulky tablets and flavored powders, Bio-Gro is an unflavored powder in its raw form that is virtually tasteless. Though it doesn't mix well in plain water, it does mix easily into almost everything else-from your protein shake to pre-workout to amino drink, and even in soft foods like yogurt, cereal, or oatmeal, and more. 

    3. More scientific research. There are over 32 published clinical studies that back up the demonstrated benefits of the primary ingredient in Bio-Gro. And more importantly, these studies were conducted mostly on well-trained athletes, participants who traditionally show less positive effects compared to untrained individuals.

    4. More expert opinions. There hasn't been a supplement we can think of, to date, that has had more PhD-sports nutrition experts who independently support and validate the science and effects supporting the primary ingredient in Bio-Gro. Including such highly reputable names as Chris Lockwood, PhD; Jeffrey Stout, PhD; Jay Hoffman, PhD; and David Sandler, ABD-PhD. 

    5. Highest quality and banned-substance tested. Because iSatori controls the domestic source of our ingredient and has engineered the first micro-concentrated, low molecular weight Bio-Active Peptides found in Bio-Gro, you can trust and count on every batch being of the highest quality and consistency; and what's more, each batch is tested and certified free of any banned substances (via Informed Choice™ ), and is GRAS certified, HALAL, Kosher, and produced in a certified GMP (good manufacturing practice) facility right here in the USA.
