Muscle HP: Horsepower!

Muscle power and muscle strength are often used as interchangeable terms. However, power actually refers to the ability to generate force quickly; think of the clean and jerk action, a baseball swing or the explosion of a vertical jump as examples that would measure muscle power output. Muscular strength on the other hand is the generation of muscle force without reference of time or speed – things like one-rep max bench or deadlift are pure strength movements. For the athlete of course, the ability to maximize muscular force with speed makes for an incredible combination that can ultimately mean the difference...

N-PRO: The Key to a Positive Nitrogen Balance

  What is Nitrogen Balance?Let’s begin with Nitrogen. Nitrogen is the most abundant element in the Earth’s atmosphere, comprising about 78% of the air we breathe and it’s the 4th most abundant element by mass in our bodies behind oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. In our bodies, nitrogen is predominantly incorporated into the chemical structure of amino acids and thus proteins. This is why dietary protein intake (natural source of nitrogen) is critical to achieving the appropriate balance of nitrogen in our bodies. Nitrogen balance is simply the net result of subtracting nitrogen loss (bodily usage/excretion) from nitrogen intake (dietary protein consumption). ...

The Power of Trimethylglycine (TMG) Supplementation

The Power of Trimethylglycine (TMG) Supplementation

  So what is Trimethylglycine? Trimethylglycine or TMG is also more commonly referred to as betaine (BEET-ah-een). For the chemists, as the name implies it is a trimethyl derivative of the common amino acid glycine. TMG is commonly found in our diet in beets (that’s where the name betaine came from), whole grains, spinach and shellfish. TMG can also be made in the body naturally via oxidation of choline-containing compounds. One of its primary functions in the body is to act as an ‘osmolyte’ and increase water retention of cells. It migrates in and out of cells to preserve cellular...
