Does the supplement C4 a pre workout drink affect me if I I'm pre diabetic?

Yes: it wastes your $$ that you could be using on proper nutrition, exercise, weight loss, test strips and medication. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. People don't need supplements before a workout; that's advertising and marketing garbage. ...Read more

Balance your diet: Your diet is out of balance which is probably why you are not feeling your,best. While protein is known to be the energy food, if not eaten in balance,with carbs your weight loss and health will suffer. It will also make your eating plan more difficult to stay with. Try adding some whole grains and fruit into your diet in moderation and see if things get better. Don't drink too much caffeine. ...Read more

Asian M High BP Bodybuilding/Cardio exercise take BSN NO Xplode (Caffeine+Creatine+NO) supplement.Can't workout hard without it.Can I take it safely?

Difficult Quetion: It will be very hard to get a 'good' or even correct answer to this. The problem is that supplement companies are not subject to inspection/regulation by the FDA, and there are very few independent studies that are ever done on their products. So... it's difficult to know the compounds that are actually in the substance - as well as their amounts. Buyer beware... ...Read more

Can weight loss affect heart rate? Losing 40kg in 1.5 years, little to no workout, my RHR went from high 70s to med 50s. Energy normal, no symptoms.

Can weight loss affect heart rate? Losing 40kg in 1.5 years, little to no workout, my RHR went from high 70s to med 50s. Energy normal, no symptoms.

Malnutrition?: Generally a low resting heart rate is a good thing and a sign of good cardiovascular fitness, at least in young people. However, in setting of malnutrition (e.g., in anorexia or bulimia), a low heart rate can be an early sign of heart failure. The lack of any symptoms is encouraging, but be careful about excessive or rapid weight loss and make sure you have a healthy and adequate diet. ...Read more

Why do ppl say pre cum causes preg?Bulbourethral doesn't secrete sperm and seems like urine would clear out stragglers beforehand, no?

Why do ppl say pre cum causes preg?Bulbourethral doesn't secrete sperm and seems like urine would clear out stragglers beforehand, no?

It Is Possible: During previous ejaculations, some sperm may be trapped in the gland. Then during the next episode of sexual arousal, the gland may carry these sperm out with the "pre-cum." urine would not necessarily flush out the gland during urination. "pre-cum" should still be considered as a risk for pregnancy. ...Read more

Hello sir i want to about deca duraboline its better before workout or after workout and what functions in the bodybuilding?

Hello sir i want to about deca duraboline its better before workout or after workout and what functions in the bodybuilding?

Deca durabolin: This anabolic steroid is generally illicitly used for muscle building. While it may be tempting to help build fast muscle, over the long run, this medication can have very dangerous effects including breast development and shrinking of the testicles. Additionally, many suffer severe acne particularly of the back. I would recommend patience and diligence rather then relying on steroids. ...Read more

What food to eat for energy pre workout?

What food to eat for energy pre workout?

Nothing special: The energy for your workouts will come from glycogen stored in your muscles and liver. So the most important thing to do is eat well on a regular basis to keep those glycogen levels up. If you have a workout that lasts more than about 30 minutes then its a good idea to eat small amounts of food with glucose to keep energy levels up after the glycogen is depleted. ...Read more

What is the science behind post/pre workout snack?

Be careful: Much of the research behind pre/post workout nutrition is more related to optimizing performance and muscle hypertrophy(gain). If you are working out for general fitness and possibly more so weight loss, your goal(s) may be very different from above and need to reflect that in how and what you eat before and after working out. ...Read more

What does it mean if i eat high-protein food before workout?

What does it mean if i eat high-protein food before workout?

Fluids more importan: Fluids or hydration more important, without carbs. Food should not be eaten after 2 hours before a good workout. Blood will flow to your gut, instead of muscle. Emphasize protein, small amount of carbs. Fat would be ok, but needs to be pushed back because of slower absorption! protein shakes are good afterwars after you first rehydrate! ...Read more

Is there side effect for creatine? If I take it before workout?

Is there side effect for creatine? If I take it before workout?

Yes: I agree with dr nguyen. We see many patients with elevation in blood creatinine (creatine is broken down to creatinine). This can suggest kidney dysfunction. It may also cause water retention. There is some sketchy evidence that it builds muscle mass, and make you stronger for short bursts, but most doctors feel the potential or real harm outweighs the benefit of taking creatine. ...Read more

are pre workout formulas good to use before hard training?are they safe?

are pre workout formulas good to use before hard training?are they safe?

It depends what: ingredients are contained in the formula. Body building mixes contain protein to repair and build muscles. Sports drinks usually contain simple carbohydrates and electrolytes (salt) to replenish losses during heavy perspiration. Stay away from complex formulas with "performance enhancers". All you really need is a healthy meal and hydration, but nobody ever believes that! ...Read more

Sir i bought this protein but how to use before workout or after workout?

Protein powder: pre- vs. post-workout is controversial. Many believe that post-work out is best because it restores what has been burnt up in the workout. Some say pre-workout to give you energy for a better workout. IMO, post-workout is best and you can add a pre-workout shake but it would need to be an hour or two prior. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Dietary supplements: One of the major problems w/dietary supplements is that they're manufactured & sold in States w/o 3rd party oversight, especially regarding quality, safety & effectiveness.
