    Part of the reason that we lose muscle and have a harder time gaining muscle as we age is that our muscles lose their sensitivity to the protein we eat with our meals.

    New research has shown that the Branched Chain Amino Acids, in particular, LEUCINE, when taken in larger amounts can restore the level of muscle protein synthesis to that of young individuals.

    In addition, our muscles are more sensitive to the uptake of Protein and Carbohydrate in the 2 hours immediately after a workout.  This shake is designed to provide extra Branched Chain Amino Acids and Extra Leucine to help stimulate more muscle protein synthesis when taken after a workout.

       "Leucine won't you do your muscle's will?"

    Vitamins, these are vital, New Series Part 6 , The B Vitamins, Vitamin B5




    Vitamine was the term coined by Casimir Funk, a Polish Biochemist, (1884-1967) for the unidentified substances present in food which could prevent the diseases scurvy, beriberi, and pellagra. This is the pioneer work in the study of vitamins in which Funk reviews his research work and postulates his theory of the existence of vitamines, essential factors in the diet.  We continue our series on the Vitamins.  Part 7 The B Vitamins, Vitamin B5, Pantothenic Acid

    You knew Fish Oil was good for you, Check out this article!!

    The da ta on fish oil and it's benefits keep pouring in.  I have attached an article which predicts the overall reduction in disease if we would only normalize our Omega 3 intake.  The figures are staggering.  The dosage recommended to achieve these benefits are "3.5gm per day for a 2000Cal diet.  This allowance for Omega 3 can likely be reduced by consuming fewer Omega 6 fats".  This is exactly what Dr. Sears and Inside Outside has been promoting. Remember what Dr. Sears says "If you only have 15 seconds in a day to take care of yourself, in those 15 seconds gag down as much fish oil as you can!!"

    The Madden Clan, Inside Outside's West Point Connection

    We have had the honor this past Summer to help prepare Crystal Madden for her first year as a West Point Cadet! Gary Madden, her father, a retired Army Helicopter Pilot, teaches Computer Science at Lackland High School and her mother, Miriam is an RN at the Audie Murphy VA and a frequent Spa Client.  Crystal and her brother John (a Junior at West Point) attended Antonian High School and will continue to workout at Inside Outside whenever they get breaks from West Point.  West Point was the location of the famous West Point "Project Total Conditioning" study performed in 1975 which demonstrated the effectiveness of a high intensity circuit weight training for not only great strength training but also on 60 measures of what are considered Cardiovascular Conditioning.

    Can too much Endurance Training be bad for you & hasten the aging process?


    Ever since the death of Jim Fixx, author of "The Complete Book of Running", in 1984 at the age of 52 of a massive heart attack there has been discussion as the whether or not too much endurance training can be bad for you.  Jim Fixx was very overweight, smoked and had a strong family history of heart disease and when he finally started running at age 35, he most likely had significant blockages present. The death of Brian Maxwell, Marathon runner and founder of the PowerBar, at age 51 and the finding of Blockages in Alberto Salazar, 3 time winner of NYC Marathon at age 48 highlights this issue.  Mark Sisson, a veteran endurance athlete, now converted to strength training and yoga has written an essay entitled "Training is no Guarantee of Health" and outlines some of the reasons as he says "Endurance Training is antithetical to antiaging"
