BLOG OF THE MONTH: RACHEL KILLAM
Hello there, fellow Nutra Fans! I am VERY happy and excited to announce that I am now officially part the Nutrabolics team; I am the new Nutrabolics Brand Ambassador Manager! My role is to take care of all things Brand Ambassador & Athlete-related. I am a 21 year old figure competitor/Veterinary Technician student and am also working as a Veterinary Assistant at the moment. These past few months have been a very busy for me, but full of opportunity, and I am so greatful! I had finals for school while I was prepping and competing at the annual Sandra Wickham Fall Classic here in Vancouver. But, I am happy to say that I took first in my figure tall class! And now being able to represent a company that I love, AND help other athletes, I am blessed. Fitness really is my LIFE, and competing is my passion. I am a Nutrabolics supplement fanatic, and I will give you a brief run-down of what supplements I am currently using. I use Isobolic pre-workout. It is a great high-quality protein powder that contains 3 different isolate sources - Whey Isolate, Milk Isolate, and Egg Isolate. Each protein source digests at different speeds, meaning my body will be fueled to battle AND recover. Swollen is my new favorite pre-workout product. I get great focus and energy from it, as well as an AWESOME PUMP. Plus, I don't get the cracked-out feeling from it that I usually get from other pre-workout products I have tried. I also take Anabolic State BCAA’s (orange is my fave,) during workouts. I like this product because it has TEN grams of BCAA’s, compared to most products that have 2-4 grams...As well as HICA, L-glutamine and L-lysine. All of these products are so important to me as an athlete, I need to protect my muscle gains as best as possible! I also take Fighter’s Food for breakfast sometimes, or before bed..or even post workout! It has a great blend of protein, carbs, essential fatty acids, vitamins/minerals and greens. It aids in my recovery, reduces cell damage and gives me more energy. I am also looking forward to Nutrabolics L-Carnitine product that will be available in Canada starting January, encouraging lean muscle growth and aiding fat loss. Needless to say, I train like a beast and expect Nutrabolics products to help maximize every session and aid in my recovery. I am currently training for the 2011 BC Provincial Championships, and hope to place top 3 so that I can go to nationals, 1 week later! My workout split at the moment consists of 5 days of weights and 5-6 days of cardio; Mon - heavy delts Tues - LEGS! Wed - chest/triceps/abs Thurs - rest Fri - back/biceps Sat - light delts/abs Sun - rest I hope everyone is having a wicked holiday, (and not eating too much!) and FINDING time to get those training sessions in between Christmas festivities and holiday cheer. Why wait for a new years resolution to get in the gym?! :) Oh, and don’t forget to cast your vote for Nutrabolics, up for 8 Canadian Supplement Awards AND Brand of the Year!! http://muscle-insider.com/2011-canadian-supplement-awards Train hard!

“I have never been able to use pre-workout products for leg days due to the fact I get so heated and they never sit easy in my stomach. Using Nutrabolics new pre-workout SWOLLEN, I was not only able to blast legs with the one of the most intense pumps I have felt, but I was also surprised at the strength increase! Using SWOLLEN I pushed 1350lbs for 10reps in sets on the leg press setting a new personal record 5 weeks out of show and dieted down, beating my old best at 1170lbs!!!” - Terry Senyk Edmonton, Alberta
FIGHTERS FOOD NOW AVAILABLE IN DELICIOUS VANILLA FLAVOR
Being a champion bodybuilder requires ferocious training intensity, perfect nutrition, plenty of sleep, and scienctifically backed supplements. Many “would be” champs have found out the hard way that building a great physique is 75% diet and 25% training/recovery. If you don’t maximize each, you simply do not make the fastest gains possible. Period. But what you eat is the single most important factor in deciding if you’ll gain rock-hard muscle slabs or soft and ugly flab! FIGHTER’S FOOD™ takes the guesswork out of your nutrition. This full-spectrum meal replacement powder contains everything you need to build muscle, increase strength and burn fat! Each 2-scoop serving contains perfectly balanced amounts of protein, carbohydrates, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, freeze-dried greens, freeze-dried berries, muscle-building amino acids, soluble and insoluble fibers, along with other herbal extracts and growth-enhancing supplements used to build fat-free mass! In fact, FIGHTER’S FOOD™ could very well be the most anabolic meal you’ll ever have! Nutrabolics researchers examined and included every single nutrient needed in your day when creating this dynamic formula. FIGHTER’S FOOD™ mixes easily with water, requires no blender and has everything you need to get growing! Sports nutrition doesn’t get any better thanks to this food-science innovation by Nutrabolics.

Blog of the Month: LAURA SHEARER
Hey Everyone, I am Laura Shearer, a Canadian National Level Bikini competitor. I have been Fitness competing for 2 years now and have completed four shows. I have been an athlete my whole life, I was a CIS All-Canadian athlete in Women’s hockey for Dalhousie, an Equestrian competitor, I also enjoy playing soccer and any other sport I can fit in with my busy schedule, along with training. Fitness competing is something new I decided to try. I had been training for years as an athlete and decided to enter a show based on that training. I love training as an athlete and living a healthy life-style. Being a competitor gives you that extra motivation to train, and keep focused on healthy living style which is something I strive for no matter when and what I am training for. Being 6 months out from my next competition, sometimes its hard to stay focused, but the pre-season workouts are the foundation for success. My schedule is training twice a day, with cardio in the morning, to ensure I get my ½ hr in, and weight training later in the day. My diet is to eat clean year round, but in pre-season I ‘clean it up’ even more, with only having 1 cheat meal a week. This cheat meal, not cheat day, still includes a good source of protein, complex carbs and lots of vegetables. I round out my clean eating with using the Nutrabolic products, Hemodrene for Her as a preworkout energizer, Anabolic State before and after my workouts to minimize muscle soreness and Iso-bolic protein shake, or Fighter food depending on my work tmes, after my workout. My weekly workout schedule is as follows: 30 minutes of moderate cardio in the mornings to start my day Mon - quads and calves Tues – chest and triceps – Hockey at night Wed - back and biceps Thurs – cardio Fri – shoulders – Hockey at night Sat – Glutes and Hams Sun - Rest Right now I am employed by Fitness Leader, doing an exciting project , which is developing an online exercise library. It will be one of the largest online fitness video libraries available on the web. As well, I am doing promotional work for Nutabolics every Monday evening at Supplement King located in Park Lane Mall (next to Goodlife Fitness) in Downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is great to be involved with these promos so I can educate customers on the benefits of all of the great Nutrabolics products I use. I also must find time to squeeze in some studying, to finish my Sociology degree at Dalhousie by December. It’s a busy schedule but it keeps me focused. Being prepared is the key to success!
TESTIMONIAL: Adrian Veinot
Tonight I used a full serving of Swollen and 2 serving of Anabolic State. Energy was just right, focus was sharp and both still going without any jitters, anxiety, restlessness or heart burn. I think I could 1.5 dose the Swollen for an even better kick. As for pump it is a SOLID and DENSE pump, far different from the superficial smooth, washed and bloated pumps from a NO/pump sup. I can only compare Swollen to one other product I used for the density, fullness, and staying power. Swollen however is MUCH easier to administer (not 3 hours pre WO and 4 hours away from mouth wash usagae due to nitrates bla blah blah lol..) and the caps are half the size. I hope you dont mind the honest review, I will fill you in if things get even better after 2 days of use. As for Anabolic state it tastes fantastic! Ive never really "feel" bcaa drinks but I can say that this one's taste, smooth light consistancy is the best I've ever had. I also noticed that my water bottle had next to no white drink residue on the nozzel at the end of my workout, more bcaa's in my muscle not down the drain. Adrian Veinot
