These two concepts shouldn’t be viewed as one versus the other, but rather as two fundamentally different, yet equally important skill sets.

Lyle McDonald goes over the study and provides us with his take on this latest research and its implications. Protein Amount and Post Workout Protein Synthesis – Research … Read More
Everyday we are hit with supplement claims that sounds to good to be true, as a result we look to science for the truth. However even science is not immune to suspect results so what if the science itself makes similar outrageous claims? Greg Nuckols tackles this subject in a recent post based on research that claims HMB got better … Read More
