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 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.

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?

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?

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
