As a Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Coach I get asked all the time, what supplements will help me lose weight or gain muscle. This is actually really tricky, since most of the supplements on the market are bogus and pretty much worthless. Since most supplements are pretty much bogus let us discuss a few that are actually beneficial. The first to discuss is a protein supplement. First of all, the reason to take a protein supplement is twofold, one to get added protein into your system, and the second it can be used as a meal replacement. So why is protein beneficial?
The Spartan Warrior Workout is not for the beginner though it has a beginner routine in it. As an individual who regularly trains and runs endurance races I found the workouts to be challenging and exhausting. This workout routine is designed to train you to take the Spartan fitness test used for the movie 300.
This workout was designed by Wade Black based on the principles of complex muscle movements and the concept of 5×5. The exercises used in this workout were the bench press, dead lift, squat, dip, chin up and pull up. The workout was done only twice per week to allow plenty of rest. On the off days I did trail runs or hill sprints.
