All Natural (Drug Free) Bodybuilding Secrets

Natural bodybuilding refers to bodybuilding without muscle enhancing drugs or anabolic substances. In other words natural athletes who choose to build their body with all-natural have to stick to a regimen of well structured bodybuilding diet along with some performance enhancing supplements like whey protein, creatine & l-glutamine. There are however other natural athletes who go all out ie they don't even use over the counter products to help them supplement their daily diets. Their nutrition consists solely on natural foods!

Natural bodybuilding is a very specific sport. There are national bodybuilding organisations that organize natural bodybuilding contests for men and women. For more information or if you are interested in entering a natural bodybuilding show please get yourself a copy of Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness magazine at your local newsagent. Some of these shows are drug tested and some are not. The choice on which one you compete is completely yours.

A natural bodybuilder must learn to build his body in the most precise way possible. Learning as much as possible about natural bodybuilding dieting, training, supplementation is essential if one is to successfully build a natural physique of national caliber.

Does Natural Bodybuilding Still Exist?

The term "natural" has undergone multiple revisions in the last few years. New and high tech bodybuilding supplements have blurred the distinction between legal supplementation and steroids. The addition of various pro-hormonal stacks and related supplements to the bodybuilder's arsenal has caused many to conclude that natural bodybuilding no longer exists. One could ask also,

Is it natural to consume 5 grams of Creatine-Monohydrate or 10 grams of L-Glutamine in a single serving?

Is it natural to use Taraxatone to increase muscular definition and then apply 5 coats of Pro-Tan prior to competition?

Does pre-digested ion exchange whey protein exist naturally?

The obvious answer to these questions is NO!

On the other hand, while it is possible to achieve an impressive and healthy physique without supplementation you need to be aware that the proper use and combination of legal supplements will increase the speed of your physical transformation and that your competitor (should you decide to compete) is likely using them to his or her advantage. So how do we resolve this conflict.

Attention Athletes - Become As Fit As A Caveman By Complying With The Paleo Diet

When we compare our regular lives to that of professional athletes, it is obvious that they follow a much different lifestyle than we do. Because they participate in such extreme sports, they push their body limits on a regular basis and in doing so
they require a regimen that allows their body to mend injuries and recover at a speedy rate, so that they can continue to participate in their respected sport. The paleo diet for athletes is a great remedy for these requirements and it is no wonder it is recommended by health experts and athlete trainers.

The paleo diet, which founded its name from Palaeolithic is developed from the food plan of the hunter gatherers centuries ago. It mainly contain foods such as lean meats and seafood hunted from animals, fruits, vegetables, in addition to nuts and seeds gathered by our ancestors. Dairy products and crop food products are on no
account a part of the diet because they were produced by man following the formulation of agriculture, not by nature. Athletes who follow the paleo diet enjoy a healthy body oozing with an abundance of energy. By making a few minor corrections towards the diet, paleo athlete enthusiasts favor lowered recovery times leading to a massive enhancement in performance.

A Champion's Path to Victory - Great Coach - Mentors Required For Success in Athletics and Business

As a former, world class Greco Roman wrestler, I learned an important lesson that has served me well in my life after athletics. It is what I call "The Champions Path to Victory". I have shared this theme many times with young athletes that I have been fortunate enough to work with at camps or on international sports tours, which I have led.

I spent nearly twenty years of my life pursuing an Olympic dream. In the end, I finished third in the U.S. Olympic Trials, which was good enough to call myself an Olympic alternate, but not good enough to allow me a chance at Olympic glory. Although, I spent so many years pursuing a dream I didn't reach, I have no regrets. The experiences I have had, the relationships I built, and the lessons I learned are worth more than gold.

Early on, in my athletic career, I discovered a common ingredient that all successful athletes had. I am not talking about great motivation and drive. Yes, that is very important, but in itself it is not enough to reach the highest levels of achievement. A high level of motivation might lead an athlete to a great high school career but not to an Olympic Gold.

The Golf Swing is an Athletic Move

Have you ever noticed a lot of the top athletes in other sports are very good golfers. Quarterbacks in football are good golfers. Case in point: Tony Romo, who is the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys is a very good golfer. He missed qualifying for the U.S. Open and the Byron Nelson golf tournaments by only a couple of strokes. Pitchers in baseball are very good golfers as well. Another case in point: Rollie Fingers, who is a retired pitcher qualified for next year's Senior Tour.

The reason athletes in other sports are good golfers is because the golf swing, when executed properly, is a natural athletic move. What is a natural athletic move? A quarterback throwing a football, a pitcher throwing a baseball, hitting a baseball, a forehand in tennis, and a hockey player shooting a puck are all natural athletic moves. The golf swing shouldn't be any different. The problem that most middle and high handicapped golfers have is trying to make a "golf swing" instead of a natural athletic move which other athletes make in their sports.

Try this image and feeling out next time you practice or play. You can even practice this in your garage or yard without hitting balls. Do you remember skipping stones across the lake when you were a kid? How about throwing a ball side arm? Go ahead, get up right now and mimic one of those motions. Did you notice anything resembling a golf swing...? If you made a natural motion of skipping a stone or throwing a ball, you made a motion of a correct golf swing. You also made a natural athletic move.

Using Nature's Remedies To Scratch Out Athlete's Foot

What is athlete's foot?A common fungal infection of the feet which typically thrives in the area between the toes, but in severe cases may spread to the toenails, the sides of the feet, and the soles.

Contracted generally in locker rooms and communal showers shared by athletes, this infection is highly contagious and easily transmitted to others whose feet may come in contact with tiny skin flakes shed by an infected person.

What causes it?

Rapidly multiplying microorganisms, including the bacteria and fungi which cause athlete's foot, thrive in warm, moist, dark environments -- like showers and sweaty gym shoes. Contact with contaminated floors, water, mats, towels, rugs, and clothes then transmit the fungus from one individual to another.

What are the symptoms?

The typical signs of athlete's foot are: dryness, itching, stinging, burning, and/or scaling between the toes, and sometimes spreading to other areas of the foot.
