A Few Quick Gift Ideas for the Fitness Freak in Your Life!

Hey, everyone! I am writing this as Christmas is very quickly approaching (or the holidays, if that is what you want to call it). Anyways, as the big date draws near for whatever holiday that you celebrate, you are here because you are, or you know someone in your life who is all about fitness. So, with that in mind, I wanted to tell you about a couple of great products out there to check out. Yeah, I am in the holiday spirit, I confess!

  • AI Sports Nutrition: No Whey Protein, Candy Cane

This one definitely tops the list here. The funny name for this product is because it is a protein supplement that does not contain any whey. The product is made this way for people who need more protein in their life but can not properly digest any kind of whey. I have actually had the chance to try this one before and it tasted amazing. It is based from pea and rice protein, so you are already getting two great sources to help you meet your nutrition requirements.

  • Cellcucor Cor-Fetti Cake Batter Protein

Wow, this stuff is amazing to try. It really does have a great cake batter flavor to it. If you grew up on those awesome rainbow colored confetti cakes, you will recognize this one right away. Made by Cellucor, one of the biggest supplement companies out there, you know that you are getting something that is quality and will work well.

  • Any Good Set of Grip Strengtheners

This one might seem a little odd, but these are a great thing to have. I actually didn’t know just how valuable that this product was until someone got them for me. There are all different kinds of strength levels that you can get, so you will need something a little bit different depending on who you buy them for. I got a real quick hit to my ego whenever I got the beginners sets of these. I thought that might have been a gag gift at first. However, the person that got them for me strongly suggested that I start out at a low level.  After trying them out for myself, that guy was right at the store! It took quite a bit of time for my to get a stronger grip and move up to the next set of these. It is kind of like a game or a challenge that you put yourself through. The most important thing about these products are, is how well they pay off when you get to workout. By having a stronger grip, you will be able to push more weight and push yourself. You may get a weird look from the person, at first, but encourage them to give them a shot and watch as they thank you, again and again, for getting them this product.

So, there you have it, I wanted to put this on here in case there is anyone doing some last minute gift getting. if you want to get some cool things for that person who is always at the gym, you can’t go wrong with any one of these choices. I hope that all of you have an awesome holiday and a great time. Get ready to make those New Year’s Resolutions fired up as the new year is drawing closer and closer!

Sports Nutrition Now Shoutout: SuperPump Max

I wanted to talk about a supplement that was actually one of the first supplements that I have tried. We all remember getting that first supplement and the excitement that came with it. I am sure that there are some of you, who, like me, were asked all sorts of silly questions my nosy people you live with about what it is. You might even remember hearing them say all kinds of bad things and trying to put your knowledge of sports nutrition down. However, I bet that you are bigger and stronger than they are, so there!

Anyways, the supplement that was one of my first was SuperPump Max by Gaspari Nutrition. I first tried this supplement when it was being released with some new flavors. I picked up a green apple and a watermelon. One thing that kind of scared me, at first, was how much was considered a serving. I was worried that I might be overdoing it so I only used one scoop at first. Something that I wanted to note about this product was that it did not contain any beta alanine. I heard a lot of people online complaining that this supplement would not be like the others since it was missing that ingredient.

Although, I am someone that likes the feeling that beta alanine in a supplement gives him, I was not so easily turned away and still wanted to get this supplement. After I did get it, I was so happy that I made the decision to do so. First off, part of this shout out has to do with just how well it tasted. Some of us know just how nasty some pre workout supplements can taste. I mean. it can be really hard to down some of those other products once, let alone 2-3 times a week!

SuperPump Max was always a supplement that mixed together nicely for me. That was something that bothered me with the other various products out there, they were so hard to mix! No one wants to drink their drink before going to the gym and ingesting a big clump of powder, it is gross! Beyond that, you have to constantly mix it and make sure that everything is getting dissolved, not a good look.

This product really got me energized and ready to go lift something heavy. The energy has always been more clean feesuperpump max containerling and not so chemical. What I mean is that I wasn’t feeling like my heart was going to beat out of my chest but more of a well rested feeling. Trust me, guys and girls, just because there is no beta alanine in this supplement does not mean it is weak. One thing that some people say badly about this supplement is that there are some bathroom issues that can happen. To be honest, I have noticed this with most of the pre-workouts that I have tried, here and there. I am not a scientist or anything but I think that that has do to with the caffeine content.

If this had happened only while using SuperPump Max, I would think differently, but this is an issue that I have had since I started taking these supplements so I don’t think it is fair to throw Gaspari under the bus like that. If you are in need of a solid pre-workout supplement that you can count on to get better results, this is a great contender.
