…GORUCK SELECTION: #stillnottrainingforselection…

When life give you lemons, you put a patch on it and attempt to do GORUCK Selection…#041

I decided I wanted to attempt GORUCK Selection after I completed my first GORUCK HCL.  I realized that I could honestly pass GORUCK Selection once I successfully completed the GORUCK HHH.  So I slowly started preparing myself to accomplish this task. I created a plan and worked towards it over the past year.  But sadly, I fell short of accomplishing the feat of passing GORUCK Selection.

How did I feel when I was told that I was no longer a participant in the 2017 GORUCK Selection class…

Unsure…confused…shocked…defeated…

Those are the best words to described how I was feeling as I walked away from the the beach, the class, and the cadre.  My performance had fallen short and there was no one to hold accountable for that except me. So I wiped my tears (yes, it is rare that I do cry so when it does happen it is a pretty big deal), dusted off my ruck, and started making plans for news goals to accomplish.

In the past 5 years, I have done countless events/races.  I have completed all of those events/races.  I completed MOST of those events/races excelling and feeling good about my overall performance. Failure is a word that I am not familiar with, nor am I willing to accept.  So, as I was unable to complete GORUCK Selection I do not see it as a failure.  I see it as a lesson to learn from and grow from. I learned how to completely change and adapt my overall mindset and lifestyle to prepare myself to attempt this event. Life leading up to this event was far from easy, but I pushed “life” aside and kept pushing to prepare for this event.

Yes, I had been training. Yes I had set a plan and was working on it. Yes, I made personal sacrifices so that I would be ready for this event (and I even lost a few “friends” because of my dedication to training for this event). But, what really happened?

Bottom line… I did not TRAIN OR PREPARE ENOUGH. Yes, I had been training and preparing.  But what ELSE could I do to be better prepared for the event? I had continued my “normal” training (with added things to prepare me for requirements of the event such as the PT test).  As I was there in Jacksonville and in the element of GORUCK Selection, I realized that I was not as prepared as I thought I was.

The best part about being there for GORUCK Selection…

Being side by side with two of my best buds. These guys for sure are my event support and are two total BADASSES. We regularly hold each other accountable and pushed each other. We motivated each other while also pushing our own limits to get ready for any event (especially an event like GORUCK Selection).

And this is how we all felt about our progress individually and as a group for the 2017 GORUCK Selection…

No, I can not tell you how to train for a event like GORUCK Selection.

The reality is that EVEYONE has their own strengths and weaknesses. Things that I would consider to be my weakness are things that I will incorporate MORE into my training.  If I were to tell you to do the exact same things that I am doing, that could be counter productive and not beneficial for your success. So my best advice to you (to get ready for ANY event that you want to do)… TRAIN HARDER.   Prepare for all elements and expect the worst.

No, I can not tell you the gear that I used or the clothing that I wore.

Again, what I LIKE may be completely different from what YOU LIKE. I have tested out my gear, my packing techniques, what I wear, and how I prepare for events via doing them repeatedly until I have NO issues with these things. Someone once scoffed at me about how obsessed I am with doing GORUCK events… I laughed at them, smiled, and walked away. Because in reality, this “obsession” is my way of trying to figure out ways to “be comfortable while being uncomfortable” in the heat of a event while also trying to embrace the few things that I will have control over. Some people may see it as an obsession, but I see it as practice and preparation.

Things to think about (for any endurance event):

  • Do you have your foot care under control? What will you do to QUICKLY and EFFECTIVELY fix your feet in the middle of a event that will allow you to keep going?
  • How has your nutrition been leading up to the event? Yes, this also includes hydration
  • Undergarments: are they working with you or against you? Ladies have additional clothing we have to consider and plan for (what type of bra to wear).
  • Chaffing….this is a real thing and can be a HUGE issue. What have you done to help prevent it. BUT, when you do get it, what are you going to do to minimize more injury and pain.
  • HOW BAD DO YOU WANT TO SUCCEED? WHAT WILL YOU DO TO MAKE SURE YOU WILL FINISH?

Having to tell all of my friends and family that I did not complete this event was like a dagger to my heart (and my ego) each time I had to talk about it. Not succeeding in something you train hard for is very humbling but also educational. You learn more about the person you are and appreciate those that are around you to encourage and support you.  You also learn that you are no exception to life’s rules and that you have to work harder than those that are around you to succeed.

Most importantly THANK YOU to my support crew. They support me not only before, during, and after GORUCK events.  They also support me in all aspects of my life. Without my support crew I honestly would not be as successful as I am today (and that includes the people that are also not show in this picture).

So for now… this is the closest I will get to a Selection patch…

Will I attempt GORUCK Selection in 2018?  I guess you will have to wait and see…

…What are the eight best foods to eat while dieting?…

There are so many ways that one can invest in to lose weight such as going to the gym, taking weight loss supplements and also dieting. Keep in mind that dieting does not require you to starve yourself as it is considered unhealthy and therefore instead on expected to consume foods that are less in calories. Food is essential as it supplies our bodies with the correct nutrients and eating the healthy foods in the proper amounts can aid you in your journey to weight loss.

What are the eight best foods to eat while dieting?

1. Watermelon

This is a great fruit packed with antioxidant chemicals essential for lowering the risk of getting cancer, heart diseases and also vision loss. The fruit is also packed with vitamins like A and C and most importantly has fewer calories. A cup of watermelon contains about 50 calories and can keep you full for an entire night.

2. Avocado

We are advised to eat the healthy fats so we can be able to get rid of the bad ones from our bodies. Well, avocado is one of the best foods that supply us with the right fats. You can use the fruit in many ways such as adding it to the salad, smearing on your sandwich or just eat it raw.

3. Sweet potatoes

This is the best alternative to use instead of the usual white potato. A medium-sized sweet potato consists of half the total calories of a medium sized white potato. Also, the food comprises of fiber and vitamin like vitamin A.

4. Salmon

Meat is highly discouraged for those watching their weight but white meat especially salmon can help you with your journey. The fish is packed with essential omega 3 and fatty acids that are useful in preventing heart disease. Also, the fish contains low calories too. If you are not able to prepare your salmon dish, consider ordering an already made dish from https://www.foodpanda.sg/restaurant/s3gn/penang-seafood- restaurant.

5. Eggs

Protein is the best food group to eat if you want to lose weight fast and it is also recommended for the people who are dieting. Eggs help one to feel fuller for a long time hence leading to less consumption of calories. You can boil your eggs or poach them for the best results.

6. Apples

Apples are packed with fibers since a medium-sized apple can provide you with about 4 grams of fiber. Also, studies show that fiber helps in weight loss as it reduces appetite and keeps you full for long and we cannot forget that apples have few calories. You can have your apple as your lunch snack.

7. Oatmeal

This is another meal that is packed with fiber and fewer carbohydrates. Also, the meal does not contain a high concentration of sugars and therefore having a plate of oat in the morning instead of a white toast will significantly help you in your dieting journey.

8. Nuts

Nuts consist of good fats and have proteins. Therefore, if you feel hungry in the day, instead of buying sweetened snacks, consider purchasing a pack of nuts as they contain fewer calories, are healthy and also keeps you full for longer. Some of the nuts to buy are the peanuts or cashew nuts.

…Couples Workout Videos and How to Get Started…

That couples who exercise together reap a lot of benefits is no secret anymore. There are all the health perks, of course, and the motivation a workout partner is able to give when you need it the most – but there’s also a few sexy benefits to exercising together.

Image link: Pexels

Here is a quick and nifty guide to the best channels out there if you’d like to get started right away, as well a few motivation boosters in case one of you needs some convincing.

Getting the blood pumping during a good gym session is not all that different from getting the blood pumping in the bedroom, which should be reason enough to get you both off the couch.

Hit Youtube first

Many workout videos for couples are found on YouTube these days, and the ones who know how to push you to reach your goals will even guide you through it for free.

Keep in mind that some of these coaches may use language that you find offensive, such as bikini bodies, for example, or getting your stomach ready for the beach.

Pay no attention to this and carry on with your exercise nonetheless. Popsugar Fitness is one of these excellent channels that couples of any fitness level may benefit from. The exercises in these videos are not necessarily for couples exclusively, but it’s still easy for both of you to follow through with it even if one of you is in better shape than the other.

Popsugar fitness posted a video that went viral a few years ago of this couple’s insane workout routine, by the way, so have a look and get your muscles inspired.

Find the fittest couples on Instagram

Those who succeed with both their relationships and their workout goals tend to boast an awful lot, and they tend to do so on Instagram. While their stable lives may annoy us, we can still benefit from all of this by looking them up on Instagram – and copying their workout behavior.

Balance your way into a double tree pose, for example, inspired by Instagrammer @kristina_gangthewolf or sink down into an in-sync squat together with @gypsetgoddess and try to gaze into each other’s eyes without making it awkward. It’s a challenge.

But why should we exercise together?

Besides from having a workout buddy you can lean on at all times, exercising with your partner is a serious relationship booster as well. Seeing each other work hard to reach those goals, working up a sweat, and taking care of themselves is a sure way to make you fall in love with them all over again.

Plus, you’ll be able to inspire each other to go for a run a bit more often. Imagine staying on the couch while your partner put on their running shoes, ready and pumped for a brisk jog in the rain? It sounds lovely, right?

No, scratch that last part – you need to support each other, and most people follow through with their workout routine when they have a partner to boost their motivation.

It will keep you healthy, active, and in a much better mood as well, so why not enjoy the feeling together?

 

…9 Training Tips for Beginners…

9 Training Tips for Beginners.


1. Do not Push too Hard too Fast.

This is probably one of the biggest mistakes that people who are new to training make, and even those who are used to training can be found guilty of pushing too hard. There are many well documented cases of even world level sports stars and athletes over exerting themselves in training or by trying to do too much and causing themselves injury.

2. Make use of the Expertise and Information Available to you.

I am referring of course to the qualified staff members in your respective gym, they have more knowledge than you will have as a newbie so please make the most of it. The more effort you actually put into learning the foundational building blocks of strength and endurance training the more you will reap the benefits of all your hard work, it will be crucial in helping you adapt to incorporating working out as part of a daily routine.

3. Set Goals, write them down and go out and get it done.

If you are new to weight training for example, you might have a long term goal of wanting to bench press 100% of your body weight for 3 sets of 10 repetitions in 12 months time. I encourage anyone to set several long term goals, write down what it means to you, why do you want to be fitter, what areas of your life might it improve as a result of improved fitness, do you want to look a little more muscular and less skinny, or do you simply want to tone up so you can feel comfortable on the beach next summer in a bathing suit.

4. Make sure you have the appropriate clothing/accessories.

A few pointers on this issue, firstly regarding clothes. You do not need to go out and spend a fortune on the latest and greatest in base layer technology, nor the latest branded tracksuit. However, I would say that for anyone planning to run regularly for their cardiovascular training whether on a treadmill or on the pavements around town then it is probably worth your while to invest in a good pair of running shoes. You should replace your running shoes every 400 miles you run.

Your feet will be put through the ringer, especially if you haven’t properly trained before or it has been a good while since you last trained regularly. Also ensure you have comfortable well fitted clothing. Ladies might want to consider a good pair of workout leggings as they stimulate blood flow and offer a little support. Guys make sure you have a pair of comfortable briefs and good length shorts in order to avoid chafing particularly in the inner thigh area where the quads can often rub together while running or cycling. Applying petroleum jelly or similar to the vulnerable area prior to working out is a simple anti-dote.

5. Don’t be Negative. You’ve Already Made a Big Step in the Right Direction.

Do not be put off nor intimidated in the slightest if it is your first time going to a gym, or even if it’s not and you feel intimidated by the muscular guys or the beautifully toned women. Everyone starts somewhere and the fact that you have actually made the leap into the relative unknown and dedicated sometime to actually being in a fitness environment shows that you are already making progress. Anyone will tell you, training and life itself come to think of it is as much about the mental as it is about the physical. You are now on the path to healthier stronger bones and a fitter you in general, just keep on making those steps which before you know it will amount to some pretty fantastic personal achievements for you.

6. Discipline is the Key.

You will often hear people in the fitness industry and life in general talking about the importance of motivation, motivation, motivation. The key to succeeding in your fitness goals is to maintain discipline. After all when you are tired, and all you can think is that you want to stop running, it is the discipline and the strength of mind to push on, when you are lacking the motivation and to take another step and then another. Discipline is what you need when all motivation is gone. We all have those days when we just don’t want to get out of bed, it’s cold, dark, raining and windy and it’s your day off: think of the gratification you will enjoy once you are able to start developing some of these positive lifestyle routines  will really empower you as a person in general.

7. Be in Control of You.

Ultimately by declaring to yourself that you are going to focus on getting fitter, you are ultimately stating a wish to re establish control over an aspect of your life which you perhaps feel you have left a little neglected in truth. The great thing about training is that you will undoubtedly start to feel better, for some seeing gains gives them a new lease of life and for others it can mean less but it always means something to everyone when progress is being made and absolutely anybody can do it.

8. Be Prepared to be Uncomfortable.

There are no magic formulas i.e. just lift a few weights, do some cardiovascular training and eat healthy for a few months, it just is not as easy as that. The main reason why so many people quit training is because they simply do not like to be uncomfortable. You have to be prepared to push yourself every time you workout if you want to see gains. Many people stop pushing themselves after a few weeks and then after two or 3 months when they can no longer see progress being made they lose the will to continue. This is another reason why setting smaller short term goals is also crucial the sense of achievement you get from achieving monthly or weekly goals will keep you on the ‘straight and narrow’.

9. New to Weights? Use Bodyweight!

If it’s good enough for the United States Navy SEAL/s then it is good enough for us mere mortals. One of the best and safest ways of developing a foundation of muscular strength is through the use of calisthenics. These are bodyweight exercises such as push-ups, bodyweight squats, sit-ups, pull-ups and jumping jacks. You can do these exercises in the living room without the need for any equipment and a good programme of bodyweight routines and three or four cardiovascular sessions per week for a few weeks might be a good idea before lifting weights.

…How Fitness is correlated with a Stronger Teeth Set…

Exercise isn’t meant to be enjoyable, but it is necessary for keeping your body in top notch condition. Most people probably don’t know this, but fitness and dental health are closely intertwined. While there are some damaging effects of exercising on your dental health, the pros certainly outweigh the cons and rightfully so. Here are some of the essential things you should know about exercise and how it affects your dental health.

How Fitness is correlated with a Stronger Teeth Set:

The negatives

While athletes who do heavy exercising and training have good health overall, it is worth noting that this can actually be bad for your teeth. According to dental experts, athletes find themselves at a higher risk of getting exercise-dependent cavities, besides dental erosion.  Here are some of the main causes of dental problems among athletes.

Energy drinks – most athletes prefer re-hydrating by consuming energy drinks rather than water. Sure, the electrolytes found in such sports drinks can greatly boost energy levels; however, they actually take a toll on the teeth. So much so, that researchers found significant damage only after a week of regular consumption. Exposing your teeth to the damaging acids and sugars found in energy drinks can greatly affect your dental health, meaning you want to invest in the best home kits consisting of effective dental products to
mitigate these effects.

Open-mouth breathing – athletes and fitness enthusiasts tend to breathe with an open mouth during intense workout sessions. Doing so not only dries out your mouth by reducing the flow of saliva, but also creates a thriving environment for bacteria. In a nutshell, open mouth breathing actually promotes tooth decay to some extent and the consumption of energy drinks while at it doesn’t help to say the least.

The positives

Prevention of gum disease – people who exercise regularly are at a lower risk of getting gum disease or periodontitis; according to research. There is a close relationship between physical activity and gum disease – interesting enough. So much so, that people who regularly work out are actually less likely to contract gum disease compared to those with no consistent physical-oriented lifestyle. According to the research, exercising three times a week can greatly reduce your chances of contracting periodontitis.

Oral health and BMI – a healthy body mass index (BMI) can go a long way in boosting your overall oral health. Generally, obesity-related health issues such as diabetes or hypertension are known to contribute significantly to poor oral health. It is quite obvious that individuals with a healthy BMI are doing something right – be it exercising or eating right. In short, your body mass index actually reflects your comprehensive lifestyle.

Essential Tips:

Exercise is good for your body, making it a necessary evil. Find alternative ways to hydrate after intense sessions rather than consuming energy drinks. Try drinking bottled water during workouts or natural coconut water to replenish energy.

Also, remember to use your nose to breath as you work out in order to avoid a dry mouth. Stick to healthy dental regimen and diet, and you should be good to go.

…Is Same Day Dentistry A Good Match To My Situation?…

It’s easy to fall into the trap that dental health is a thing that “can wait.” After all, these aren’t instantly threatening health conditions, right? Well, for one, writing the ways that dental health affects overall health is an article in and of itself. Secondly, we live in a time where there’s less and less reason to let your schedule dictate your health. Advances in dental technology and practices mean that same-day
dentistry is viable for more and more procedures. If you search well enough and are aware what your needs on, the idea of crowns in a day and other similar procedures are far from an unreasonable dream.

One-Day- Options?
If you’re curious how exactly technology has made same-day dentistry viable but don’t exactly know how: let’s hear from the experts at the American Dentistry Association (ADA):

“The in-office application of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has evolved continually across 25 years, and material enhancements made in conjunction with this evolution have improved the speed and precision with which dentists can place high-quality, esthetic restorations for almost every dental application.”

What does this mean to you? For one, the days of crowns, bridges, implants, and even dental veneers taking several days and several visits are over. In general, the procedure for a same-day dental procedure involves a consultation with a dentist where they will examine your teeth and get a proper understanding of your goals. This isn’t different than most other situations, but in some cases, a dentist
will also use a 3D scanner to get an accurate picture of your teeth, then create a perfect model using appropriate ceramic materials, matching right up to the color.
Note that even among same-day dentists, not all procedures are the same. Some dentists will require using something like a removable denture or other similar equipment, while others will require simpler procedures. This consultation will make all the difference, so be ready to ask the questions about your
procedure then to avoid any uncertainty. Equally important is the nature of your teeth. In general, same-day dental implants and other procedures are best for patients who have enough bone and nearby healthy teeth to the affected spot to hold the implant in place. People whose oral health is in more dire straits may not be ideal candidates for same-day dentistry. This provides all the more reason to try to attend to dental issues early, to allow for more options. On top of convenience, other benefits of same-day dentistry are:

  • No need for temporary restorations
  • Minimally invasive
  • Cost-effective
  • Less discomfort and fewer injections
  • High-quality ceramics
  • More of the natural tooth is saved in comparison to traditional procedures
  • Restorations designed to last long-term
  • Biocompatible solutions

How To Find A Same-Day Dentist
Same-day dentistry has evolved to the wave of the future rather than an alternative option, but it extremely important to pick a dentist who you are comfortable with, and there are several factors you should keep in mind during your search on top of whether or not they offer same-day services.

For one, it’s best to start with logistics. Does your insurance match the dentist you are looking to see? Are prices prohibitive for you? If so, are there any available payment plans that may allow you to get your procedure without incurring financial hardship? The other side of logistics is timing. While same-
day dentistry makes this easier than ever, there are other things to consider. For example, not every dentist has weekend hours each week or late-afternoon hours for commuters. Be sure to ask ahead if this is a necessity for you.

In general, other questions you have regarding the dentist’s suite of services and qualifications can be found on the dentist’s website, but often, this may not be enough to sway you one way or the other.  Sometimes, friends and family are good sources of recommendation, but if this isn’t an option, consider asking your general physician, dental insurance company, or state’s dental association for more info.

We live in a time where there are more and more demands on our schedule, making it difficult to try and work, maintain our homes, and still take proper care of our health. The good side of this is that
despite all the time pressures, technological advances allow us the ability to do more and in a more convenient manner. Dentistry is no exception. Same-Day dentistry means that we have the procedural means to attend to many oral health issues with minimal impact on your schedule, meaning that searching for the right dentist can do more for your teeth than ever before for less.

…Before, During & After: Building Muscle As A Way Of Life…

It has to be one of the most common fitness goals, especially among men, and yet relatively few people really know all there is to know about building muscle. It makes little difference whether you want to build just a little muscle, or you are keen to embark on a fully-fledged bodybuilding regime; either way, it pays to know as much as you can about the science behind it. More than that, it pays to know something of the art of it, too. As it happens, there is much that you need to take on board if you want to build those muscles.

Image

The Diet

One of the biggest mistakes that wannabe bodybuilders make is that they constrain their efforts to the gym. But much of the hard work is actually done outside of the gym, and away from the dumbells. One of the most vital elements in all of this is your diet. There is a lot of confusion around what kind of a diet you should have in order to build muscle. One of the biggest misconceptions relates to protein. You don’t actually need that much protein in order to be able to develop muscle. Aim for a tenth of your body weight in grams (so somewhere between 110g-140g for most people) a day, and you are fine. Any more than that won’t actually help. Instead, fill out the rest of your diet with as many fruits and vegetables as possible. Whole foods only, please.

The Session

Still, what you do when you are at the gym is obviously going to be important. Firstly, ensure you are wearing the proper lift clothing, and that you set aside some decent time for the session. It is possible that you have been lifting wrong your entire life. This realization might be a tad disheartening, but it is better to know this as soon as possible and make the necessary change to your technique now rather than later. As a general rule, one conscious, slow lift is more effective than ten rapid rushed lifts. You should also remember to lift progressively heavier weights, both during a session and overall. You should also try to get used to the feeling of muscle burn, as this is when the real training happens, and when your muscles really start to pop in the way you would hope.

Image

Afterwards

Just as important as what you do during the workout session is what you do after it. First of all, it is incredibly important that you warm-down, so that you can give your muscles a chance to repair themselves as you go. This is both important for your safety and well-being, and also means your workout will be more effective in the long run. Also be sure to drink plenty of water, in little sips, in the hour after working out. This helps your body to replenish, as does eating a small amount of fruit and vegetables shortly after the gym.

Following these simple steps, you can massively improve your chances of building some real muscle. Just make sure you are focusing on the before, the during and the after in equal measures.

…Merchandise Evaluation: AMEVIE Sunglasses…

For those of you that REALLY know me, you know that I have two accessories that I am ALWAYS wearing… headbands and sunglasses. When I had the opportunity to try these glasses out I was BEYOND excited.

AMEVIE is a company that created products that are focused on being a brand that focuses on sun-care and lifestyle brand that cares. After a full year of research and development, they recently launched their FIRST product line, a collection of sustainable bamboo sunglasses.

The brand was born from the owner/creators own need and desire to develop safe products that protect the entire family from the harmful UV rays. The bamboo sunglasses are water-proof and sweat-proof as well as they are perfect for travelling as they come with a foldable case. And as for protection, they sourced the best lenses available, UV blocking and polarized.

Overall Comments:

I am IN LOVE with this brand and product. I am a HUGE stickler for actually trying out products. I wore these glasses to social events, athletic events, and even during some of my own outdoors workouts. I got complimented on the overall style and sleekness of the design. While I was working out in them, they DID NOT slip off of my ears or nose easily.  Once I was drenched in sweat… they of course slipped. BUT leading up to that point I had NO issues at all.  They are light weight and very comfortable to wear. The folding case that comes with it is an added bonus!

I seriously had friends trying to steal these glasses away from me… so that tells you the overall quality and design is favorable.

Quality for Price: 

Looking at the AMEVIE glasses I was shocked at first at the original price of these glasses.  BUT, I would have to say I am a firm believer in “you pay for the quality of the product you want”.   It is clear that the higher price of these glasses makes them a higher quality accessory.  They performed well in various settings for me.  If you are someone who enjoys wearing glasses, these would be a good addition to your wardrobe.

Ranking Scale: (on a scale from 1-5)

Price: 3.5

Overall Quality: 4.5

Quality for Price: 4.5

Overall Ranking: 4.16

Closing Remarks: 

I honestly enjoy these glasses. Like I said I tried them out before writing this review because I wanted to make sure they would withstand “normal” abuse and not break after wearing them over a weekend. Again, they were very stylish and comfortable. Shipping was quick and painless.  Not to mention you get the folding case, sunglasses carrying bag, and lens wiping cloth ALL INCLUDED with your purchase. I hope to be able to get more of these glasses to add them to my accessory collection!

…Use of Testosterone…

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a steroid hormone that stimulates development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes, but also in the ovaries and adrenal cortex.

Testosterone is a hormone found predominantly in men, and significantly less in women.  It has been found to directly affect a persons bone and muscle mass. Having too much OR not enough testosterone can lead to drastic physical and mental health issues.

It has been a common practice for some people to use testosterone to help supplement the current testosterone their body products. This is done to help enhance athletic performance and physical appearance. I am in no way suggesting this is something that should be done! There are natural ways that can be utilized to help boost your own natural testosterone levels.

But, some people seek aids of steroids to help them achieve physical goals…
When we try to select a prominent range of steroid that may provide enough positive results to a human body, we generally go through this wide variety of steroids and try to find out the one that will be absolutely suitable for our physic. Mostly for the athletes, when it comes to increase the resistance power and to perform remarkably well, there is a practical use of steroid which is chosen without any hesitation and just by adhering to the guide and meticulous methods of getting the best possible outcome from the steroids. For this reason
those who get into the effects of steroids can perform better with nominal side effects that are not at all harmful in the long run.
Careful selection of steroid and dosage

But when you are selecting a steroid it is always recommended that you go through the online reviews of different steroids, consult with an experienced user or talk about the steroid use at your own fitness circle to accumulate more information related to the different usage and brands of steroids. You will always find a number of great websites that deals with the use
and proper selection of steroid besides selling them at a reasonable price. In these online stores you will also find some customer care executives who are best in handling the varied situations of using steroids and can help you as well with the most supportive consultation and positive advice.
