Main principle of bodybuilding
Exist a lot of myths about importance of diet and exercise in bodybuilding. Each of them is important. There are many so-called “experts” that says that “diet – represent 85% of success” or “not important exercise as a diet.” Goldenmuscles is convinced that such statements is nonsense! To achieve results, and to ensure that time spent in the gym will give 100% result, you need to combine exercise with diet. Only together they will bring you wished goal! In the bodybuilding food is the fuel that your body need for growth, training and drive the process of the formation of muscles.

What does in professional sport an athlete need  to succeed in their field? Special sports training and, again, proper nutrition, which make body work. The same can be said about supplements. They are a diet supplement. We do not even give out them in a separate budget item, they usually come in ‘supplements”. It appears in one famous journal – “eat to live but not live to eat.” And Goldenmuscle agree that food is necessary for the body function, health, and for achieving physical goals. For example, from fish oil, we obtain the required fatty acids as EPA and DHA. American diet does not include the consumption of omega-3, this is the reason of the imbalance of omega-3 and omega-6. That’s why we can recommend to use fish oil. This is not only a very useful product, yet it helps with insulin sensitivity, helps to lose weight, and is required for such complex diseases, such as mental

Bodybuilding Without the Added Shakes

Protein shakes and supplements have a lot of benefits for bodybuilders; they are quick and easy to use and supply the type of protein necessary for a bodybuilder’s diet. This is why they are so popular and commonly used; particularly amongst those relatively new to the weight-lifting game. While shakes and supplements are for the most part safe and healthy when consumed properly, they do carry some added risks. Because protein shakes are a food supplement they are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the same way as pharmaceutical products. This means that manufacturers might not test supplements for toxins or might fail to disclose harmful ingredients in their products. Independent testing labs have previously found heavy metal contamination, including cadmium, lead and arsenic, in many protein shakes. So with this in mind, is it possible to get ripped without the shakes?

What Your Body Needs to Build Muscle

Protein shakes do not provide your body with anything that you cannot get from regular foods; they just give you a shortcut to getting it. By understanding which foods your body needs, and when and how often it needs them, you can tailor-make you own perfect bodybuilding diet. Sure this version requires more time and effort, but hey, you’re a weight-trainer, all you know is time and effort right? To build muscle and lose fat you need a variety of proteins, vegetables, fruits, carbohydrates, and healthy fats in your diet. There is of course still a key focus on protein.

Separate Bodybuilding From Fitness, Figure & Bikini

by Joe Pietaro

With the announcement that the bikini division will be a mainstay at Olympia Weekend, it is time to separate the classes right down the middle. Bodybuilding shows should be just that and both the men and women’s finals should be held together the same night. The prior evening can be for the fans of the newer – and less hardcore – divisions such as fitness, figure and bikini.

Listen – I personally have no problem whatsoever looking at women barely dressed cavorting on a stage and not feeling guilty about it, but for the sake of the sports world, bodybuilding differs greatly from the other three. As a man, staring intently at someone like Heather Mae French and calling it work is a great thing. But when I put on my sportswriter’s hat, it just doesn’t cut the mustard.

Interviewing Dennis Wolf or Iris Kyle is the other end of the spectrum. No knock against the smaller, svelte figures out there, but it’s similar to comparing an offensive lineman and a tennis player. Both are professional athletes, but prepare for their jobs completely different.

The key to power bodybuilding

The only bodybuilder worthy of his profession is a power bodybuilder. He couldn’t care less about what he sees in a mirror. Rather, he feels the call to get into the gym every day for no other reason than to slam the heaviest weights he’s ever tried. You can spot these guys a mile away. They’re as big as bridge pilings and just as hard. Worse, you can spot the guys who don’t power bodybuild. They don’t have hard muscle; it’s beach muscle. That’s fine for the average Joe, but for me?
No way. I’m not in this game to look at myself, but to lift–and the only way to lift is from the soul. That’s power bodybuilding. It’s doing whatever you can to magnify the resistance against your muscles, and I accomplish that with extreme overload and concussion reps. I pound away like a piston, as hard as I can, at the heaviest weight I can find, until one of us gives.

Muscles Remember Past Glory

That memory is stored as DNA-containing nuclei, which proliferate when a muscle is exercised. Contrary to previous thinking, those nuclei aren’t lost when muscles atrophy, researchers report online August 16 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The extra nuclei form a type of muscle memory that allows the muscle to bounce back quickly when retrained.

The findings suggest that exercise early in life could help fend off frailness in the elderly, and also raise questions about how long doping athletes should be banned from competition, says study leader Kristian Gundersen, a physiologist at the University of Oslo in Norway.

Muscle cells are huge, Gundersen says. And because the cells are so big, more than one nucleus is needed to supply the DNA templates for making large amounts of the proteins that give muscle its strength. Previous research has demonstrated that with exercise, muscle cells get even bigger by merging with stem cells called satellite cells, which are nestled between muscle fiber cells. Researchers had previously thought that when muscles atrophy, the extra nuclei are killed by a cell death program called apoptosis.
