BETH'S BOOK OF THE YEAR:
The TB12 Method
This is my new training manual in many ways.
I am confident that even if you are not a die hard Patriots fan like I am you will appreciate this book and Tom Brady's system.
A Stronger, Leaner, Healthier You Tip:
Take BCAAs and a Collagen Supplement
What are these BCAA supplements I keep hearing about and do I need them?? Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are the only amino acids that are not degraded in the liver. BCAAs head directly into the bloodstream. BCAAs are burned for energy (oxidized) during exercise and “the consumption of BCAAs directly influences plasma levels and concentrations in muscle tissue” (Layman DK 2003). Why should you take them? In simple terms, you will build muscle more efficiently, experience less muscle soreness. And as you have most likely heard before: the more muscle you have the more fat you will burn. They also help regulate blood sugar. For a more scientific and in depth discussion of them: http://www.precisionnutrition.com/all-about-bcaas
I also take a collagen supplement daily and highly recommend this. Collagen supports joint and muscle health.
