Product Review: Champion Pure Whey Protein Stack

Champion Pure Whey Protein Stack, 5 Lbs., Chocolate 
A Great Protein, Awesome Price...

I just wanted to share some information with you guys about this product. I have been using it for a month now and have to say it is really good! There aren't many whey protein drinks out there that impress me with their flavoring and protein content, but this one did! Pure Whey Protein Stack is an effective way to gain lean muscle mass whether you are planning on bulking up or losing fat. This powerful protein supplement is made with 99.9% high-quality protein, which makes it an excellent choice as the alternate source of dietary protein. This is one of my favorite whey protein drinks. For the money, you cant find a better tasting protein powder!

A Product You Need At A Price You Can Live With
Pure Whey Protein Stack is designed to work great, yet not break your bank, gotta love that. In fact, per serving, Pure Whey not only costs less than the leading brand, but it also costs less than most other sources of protein you eat! So if you are looking for a high-quality protein at an economic price, Pure Whey is just your ideal choice. I use this product for two of my meals during the day. Mixes easily and no clumps!! Mix in water or skim milk, toss in a banana or some peanut butter! The flavor is awesome!

Here's to a new you!

Abdominal Workouts for beginners!

So you want stronger, sexier abs huh? You want a flat belly, to look and feel better about yourself? Well, I have a nice little workout for you that will help get you started. One thing I want you to keep in mind is, you can do abdominal work everyday, all day but if you are not eating right, doing cardio and being consistent you wont see the fruits of your hard labor. Its a sad truth but it is fact.

The muscle groups that give complete development to your midsection are among the most important in your physique. Many lower-back injuries are a result of weak abdominal muscles rather than underdeveloped spinal erectors. I learned this the hard way. I had horrible lower back pains and had to receive injections in my lower back to relieve the pain. My doctor tried to tell me many times that it was from me being overweight and that I had very weak abdominal muscles. A tightly muscled midsection is a sure signal that you are in optimum physical condition and you will feel that way to!

Here are a few exercises I suggest to get you started:

Crunches 3 sets of 20-30 reps
Side Crunches 3 sets of 20-30 reps
Reverse Crunches 3 sets of 20-30 reps
Planks 3 sets of 1 minute

Once you get really good with these exercises, you can add weights as resistance or change to other abdominal exercises. There are a lot of ways to train abdominals but these I have listed are the basics.

Here's to a new you!

A workout buddy?

Is having a workout partner important? Well, if you're like most people, even like myself, you probably don't like to do things alone. I'm a person who likes to train with a partner. Why? I am better able to make progress and it's fun!

My beautiful wife, Shelly, is a huge help to me. She really motivates me to push harder and do a little more than I could if I were on my own. I do the same for her in return. The benefit? Our results from all of our hard work!

I've tried training with "hardcore" lifters and even hired an awesome trainer but that didn't progress very well. Mainly because our goals were a tad different. But by working out with someone with similar goals as myself, my results have been nothing short of phenomenal! Not only do I look forward to training everyday but Shelly helped make training fun and more enjoyable.

Shelly and I joke around in the gym a little but when it comes time to do our set and to spot each other, we are all business. It is fun training with Shelly and teaching her at the same time. Having a training partner is very beneficial in my book.

If you can find someone that you can get along well with and you two can understand each other's needs in the gym and can compromise, your training will be propelled to a new level.
Here's to a new you!
