Fat Gripz!!

First off, a HUGE Thank you goes out to Franco over at Fat Gripz for sending me a pair of Fat Gripz and a pair of Fat Gripz Extreme along with a few killer T-shirts for me and my gym buddies!

Ok, so just what are Fat Gripz? Fat Gripz help add muscle and strength to your body (especially arms) in a faster amount of time. They have been described as the "biggest thing to happen to weight training in the last decade" 

Fat Gripz instantly convert barbells, dumbbells, chin-up bars and exercise machines into thick bars. Thick bar training can produce much bigger strength and muscle gains in the arms compared to standard training equipment

Thick bars make your hands, fingers and forearms so much stronger that your body can finally stop "holding back" the strength and muscle gains in your uppers arms, back and chest.

It is not uncommon for even an experienced lifter to make significant muscle gains in just a few months by switching to thick bars

Thicker handles stimulate much more muscle activation in the hands and arms. More muscle activation means much bigger muscle and strength gains.

There are 2 types of Fat Gripz. Fat Gripz and Fat Gripz Extreme. Both are phenomenal products but I highly recommend those that haven't tried this product to start off with the regular Fat Gripz. The Extreme is exactly that and makes the gripping even harder. So work your way up to the Extreme.

Fat Gripz is made for several types of training. Bodybuilding, Cross Fit, Power Lifting and Strongman, Arm Wrestling or even Martial Arts where grip is very important. I suggest you visit their home page and read up on this awesome product! I'm sold on it and will use it every workout!!

EatSmart Precision Body Check Bathroom Scale

I'd like to thank the awesome folks over at for send me the Precision Body Check Bathroom Scale to try out and review. This scale has many functions, all of which I use, and super accurate, easy to use and uniquely designed to perfectly match the decor in any home.

The scales are engineered to the highest precision standards to provide you with consistently reliable products. Stop guessing your weight and let their scales help you get serious about your fitness and weight loss goals. 

The EatSmart Precision Body Check does so much more than a typical bathroom scale. It measures weight, and estimates body fat, body water, body muscle, BMI, bone mass, and daily caloric intake using BIA electrode technology. Simply step on the scale and in seconds you'll see your 7 key health metrics.
  1. Large, 3.7" Backlit LCD display
  2. "Step-On" technology - no more tapping to turn on your scale
  3. Auto-recognition software stores up to 8 unique user profiles and recognizes the individual users
  4. When a weight locks in, the scale beeps, giving the user time to step off and view their 7 health metrics
  5. An athlete mode for very active users
  6. 4 high-precision sensors ensure consistent and accurate measurements
  7. 3 measurement modes: Pounds / Kilos / Stones
  8. 2 graduation increments: 0.2 lb / 0.1 kg
  9. Ultra thin, sleek design with high quality tempered glass platform
  10. Max Weight: 400 lbs / 180 kgs
  11. Auto calibrated and includes 3 AAA batteries

My personal opinion on this product is that it's pretty darn amazing. I love it and use it daily. Daily? Yes, daily. I compete in bodybuilding and my diet coach needs to know my weight on a daily basis. Other than that I would use this scale one to times a week just to keep myself in check.

The only part I wasn't really satisfied with was the body fat estimate. Right now I am 4 weeks out from my next competition in Oklahoma City and my body fat, according to 7 point caliper testing, is 4% The scale has me at 28%. So I'm not really using the body fat part of this scale. The rest is dead on as far as I can tell.

Do yourself a favor and click HERE to order one today! You will not be disappointed!

Here's to a new you!

Transparent Labs BULK Series Pre-Workout!

The great people over at Transparent Labs sent me a tub of their BULK Series Pre-Workout (Blue Raspberry) to try out and review here on my blog. First off I want to say THANK YOU to Transparent Labs for being so awesome and for trusting me to give an honest review of their product.

I started off with 1/2 scoop as the directions suggested. I was rather impressed that such a "low dose" (for a man my size and weight) could deliver such a steady flow of energy. I mixed 1/2 scoop in with 6-8oz water and drank it on my way to the gym.

The energy and pumps were fantastic. BULK lasted the entire workout and I still had gas left in the tank for more. I compete in Bodybuilding and feel my training is a bit harder than the average gym goer and BULK really helped me to grind through a tough workout.

Flavoring we really good. There are no artificial sweeteners or flavoring. They use low amounts of natural sweeteners which I really like!

Mix ability was excellent, very easy to mix. You can use a spoon to mix it. No clumps are settlement.

Overall I rate this product 9/10

What is BULK Series Pre-Workout?:

PreSeries BULK was developed for a specific purpose - to be the most exceptional "bulking" pre-workout supplement available. The key ingredients, all backed by published scientific research, are included at clinically effective dosages and contain zero colored dyes, unnecessary fillers, or harmful additives.
With 100% formula transparency and a potent Testosterone Support complex (vitamin D3, boron, and zinc), PreSeries BULK is most effective for serious athletes and bodybuilders looking to gain size and increase muscle mass.
There's a reason why PreSeries BULK comes in jumbo-sized jugs! Each serving exceeds 22 grams and includes 20 active ingredients that are designed to increase nitric oxide ("pump") and focus while working out, reduce fatigue and muscle soreness, all while enhancing overall physical performance.

This review is on AI SPORTS NUTRITION 100% Whey Protein Birthday Cake Flavor!

Now I have had tried a lot of whey protein in my years of training and competing. I think I have tried almost every flavor out there. But this one stands out. BIG TIME. The birthday cake flavoring is nothing short of amazing. Extremely tasty and delicious and I might add kind of addicting.

From my very first sip I was sold on this brand and the flavor. What i even better is that not only can I enjoy  a delicious whey shake anytime but I can also make Protein pancakes with it. I have also made protein cup cakes and waffles using this brand and flavor and let me tell you, they was HEAVEN!

If you would like to try this product, and I suggest that you do. Click HERE to order and use code HUGEBANKS30 and get a killer 30% off!

You will not be disappointed with this flavor or any other flavor they offer!

Here's to a new you!
