Go in to most gyms in the world and you will see people exercise bikes and treadmills with all the good intentions of trimming up and loosing bodyfat. But many never seem to loose the weight they want for one of the most basic reason that has been forgotten in todays ultra sophisticated training regimes. Listen really good folks because it one the mantras around here because it works and will always work. Aerobics work there magic on body fat after anaerobic activity and not before. We all know you've seen the professional doing aerobics in the morning before training on an empty stomach, so if it works for the pros it must work for me. Not really! He or She are on a calory restricted diet, plus probably so form of fat loss agent you are not taking. What this means is do you cardio at the end of your workout and don't waste time at the beginning because your only spinning you wheels. Use it as a warmup and nothing less, 10 minutes to get the blood moving in the body and on to your training.

L-arginine is a protein amino acid present in the proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid. This means that under normal circumstances the body can synthesize sufficient L-arginine to meet physiological demands. There are, however, conditions where the body cannot. L-arginine is essential for young children and for those with certain rare genetic disorders in which synthesis of the amino acid is impaired. Some stress conditions that put an increased demand on the body for the synthesis of L-arginine include trauma (including surgical trauma), sepsis and burns. Under these conditions, L-arginine becomes essential, and it is then very important to ensure adequate dietary intake of the amino acid to meet the increased physiological demands created by these situations.
Alpha-Ketoglutarate is a form of the amino acid Ornithine and has been used as a supplement to improve athletic performance and enhance wound healing. Other names for Alpha-Ketoglutarate include: Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (OKG) and Ornithine.
Why is this important for you? - There are a lot of product on the market right now that are pairing these two amino acids with all kind s of formulations. Some good and others that are still has us wondering what they were thinking. We won't even bother with those and concentrate on the pairings we like the most.
The best pairings for absorption of more nutrients into the muscle cell? - Listen closely people when some say they have NO this and AAKG, what they are saying they have a AAKG product and thats all. We do admit that most NO products work great as pre-workout energy booster due to the AAKG kick of energy production that you get but AAKG's biggest attributes are not pre-workout, they are post workout. The two best pairing so AAKG is to use it along with your post workout creatine drink. Every Bodybuilder, athlete, powerlifter had better be taking at least two creatine drink each day or your just cheating yourself of progress. One should be pre-workout and the other later in the day between meals on an semi empty stomach. Pure AAKG powder along with a good creatine mix will do wonders for your recuperation. The other is 1-2 teaspoons of AAKG powder mixed in juice taken along with you ZMA 30 minutes before bedtime. These are two of the most effective ways to use AAKG, remember L-Arginine best properties are healing and you need healing most after the workout not before.

Question: I don't get it I believed weight training was weight training. So what is the difference between weight training in general and weight training for sports?
Ted H. Tempe Az.
Answer: Thank you for that excellent question!
You're kinda right general weight training is a part of what athletes do but they also do more sports specific training for what ever sport they participate. A major league pitcher will have a overall conditioning program to help him strengthen his whole body for the rigors of the season. He will also have a more specified program to help strengthen the components of his position like shoulders, rotator cuff, forearms, wrist, hips, lower back and legs. Oh yeah there allot more involved in pitching than just throwing the ball. He will focus building strength in these muscle groups to help him get ready for the season and use a maintenance program during the season so not to loose all the gains he made during the off-season. So finish up, most athletes do use general weight training as part of their programs, but also have a more specific program for the requirements of their positions.
