Collagen Supplement—Even Men?

As a gym and fitness rat, I like my supplements and I always try new ones too.

One of the supplements that I enjoy to take is a pre-workout, I like to feel the rush of energy and get the extra push during the workout and I also figure out that at least for me is a mood boost too.

Back in the day when my wife was exercising with me she both one of those pre-workout specific for a woman but in reality, the only added value was the collagen. Since it has been sitting there for so long and because of the peach flavor which I love I decided to give it a try, but that started to ask to myself what the collagen do? Is it suitable for Men?

Here are my finds …

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and it is the major component of tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. Collagen can improve skin health, relieve joint pain, prevent bone loss, boost muscle mass, promote heart health.

Will I consider in the future to implement a collagen supplement in my diet? Definitely,  YES.

I have been overweight for my entire life and if the collagen will help to prevent more stretch mark than I already have and perhaps contribute to fade the existing ones is already a winning game.

I Am Carb Cycling

If you guys have been following me for a while now, you all know that I was in a bulk regime for the last 3 months and that I planned to switch on a cutting face after this period.

There are different ways out there to lose weight and all of them promise miracles, however, the only way to succeed is always to do what is best for you in fact if you are in a losing weight journey it doesn’t really matter which kind of diet or meal plan you are following as long as you are in a caloric deficit you will lose weight, the take point here is, do what is best for you every one of us is different… You need to try!

My previous cut was more kind of getting the same amount of deficit calory each and every day but this time around I have decided to carb cycling… have you guys ever heard of this before? If not… fasten your seat belt and let’s talk about it.

Carb cycling means you eat a higher amount of carbs one particular day and the other days will be with lower amount of carbs this will be planned and throughout your weeks. Now, there are different ways to do this, I have read of people eating high carb every time they have a workout day and having a low carb day during the rest day.

When you exercise, your body dips into your carb stores for energy, so naturally, your high carb days would align with training days, when your body can best utilize that fuel. That can be a great thing, because an extra push during your workout means you can go harder for longer, burning more calories overall.

Now my approach is slightly different because I am trying to teach my body to use my fat storage during my training day so I have low carb day during those days and high carb day two times a week at my maintenance calory in this way I will replenish my energy.

What is your thought on Carb Cycling? Have you have ever done this before and if yes what was the results? I am hoping to have great results in the months to come so stay tuned.
