Disappointment of the Year

This year I have reviewed many incredible products! Some incredible products that didn’t win, but still need to be mentioned: The Shred Belt, Youfresh Naturals, The Powerball, The footballer, the beastie ball, SFH So3d3, Deer Antler Velvet and many many others! Check out all the reviews here on this site!  

And now on to the awards! 

 Bonus Supplement of the Year: What is the bonus of the year? Well; it’s the supplement that makes a world of difference that doesn’t quite fit in any of the categories! And the award goes to: Wheatgrass 



There’s too many great things to say about wheatgrass! You have to check out my post here on this site! 

Best Tasting Supplement of the Year: many can enter but only one can win! I truly enjoyed all the nut butters and coconut butter this year but one was slightly above all! And the award goes to: PB Crave



This stuff tastes amazing! Every flavor is rich and delectable! Try them all! Hey PB Crave how about a cinnamon raisin?  

Stack of the year: This years Stack of the Year challenge was a Fat Burner coupled with a Test Booster to try and stop muscle loss when going on an extreme low carb diet. The results were amazing! And the award goes to: Shredz Fat Burner and Testosterone formally: Shredz and Diezel 




BCAA of the Year: And the award goes to: BPI Sports Best BCAAs 



Protein of the Year: And the award goes to: Bio-gro although its not quite protein, its Colestrum it’s made from milk and therefore qualifies! Bio-gro has added value to my protein shakes! Try it! 



Best Grass Fed All Natural Whey Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Body Logix Natural Isolate All Natural Whey



Best Alternative Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Rice Protein by Growing Naturals I believe that adding multiple sources of protein equals greater uptake in the body. Rice Protein probably absorbs slower than Whey Isolate making my shake a time released protein shake! That’s awesome!

Teatox Challenge Teatox of the Year: and the award goes to: Mate Fit

Gym Gear – Products that should be in every Guy and Girls Gym Bag! *

When going to the gym there are tools you should always have in your bag. Don’t rely on the gym having them and sometimes it’s just plain nasty to share! Then there are also recommended items that are a luxury to have.

Guys Gym Bag:

Wrist wraps:

20140223-204550.jpg

Wrist Straps:

20140223-204831.jpg
Flexsolate straps:

20140223-202604.jpg
You can leave the book and DVD at home. This are incredible for face pulls (high row) and for burning out a body part especially after your TGrips (below) burn out your grip!

Ironbull TGrips (optional, but highly beneficial):

20140223-202840.jpg
Al1ve Magnetics (optional, but highly supportive):

20140223-203052.jpg

20140223-203057.jpg

20140223-203103.jpg
Weight Belt (Optional, due to preference)

20140223-211806.jpg
I personally am trying not to rely on a belt, but if you want a belt, but the best! Cardillo!

Protein Shaker with 2 scoops ETB:

20140223-203414.jpg
Smart Shakers are ideal, because you can carry preworkout, protein & post workout like vitargo or vitamins/supplements

Water Bottle:
Smart Shaker can take the place of your water bottle also after you finish your preworkout refill with water. Water is essential to a good workout!

Gym Boss interval timer (Optional, but makes life easier):

20140224-095908.jpg
Makes life easier to do intervals and preserves the battery life on your phone, by using a handy dandy little device to track and time your intervals and it uses one long lasting AAA battery.

I’m military, so I’m a prepper. No not like the crazy guys on tv, but it’s good to be prepared! Emergency items that should be in your gym bag:

Multi-tool

20140223-203856.jpg

Small First Aid kit – band aids, alcohol pad/antiseptic cream to clean cut , Advil/Aleve for pain and Benedryl in case you have an allergic reaction to something.

20140223-203947.jpg

20140223-204022.jpg
Emergency Can of Tuna and metal fork (I hate plastic!) you never know what might happen and you need the proper nutrition in a pinch!

Travel deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste

A little spare change

If you have a knee injury I suggest:

20140224-112544.jpg
A McDavid knee strap, but remember to check with your doctor first!

I also recommend a gym bag in a gym bag! Use a mesh laundry bag to air out your products and don’t zip it all the way shut at home so your gear airs out!

20140224-112909.jpg
For your Al1ve Magnetics, Under Armour etc..

If you are allowed carbs then a shaker with Vitargo the king of carbs!

Headphones: if you like to listen to outside music. I myself do not like anything in my ears when I am training.

Girls Gym Bag:
Gloves – you want to keep your sexy soft hands

Ankle straps:

20140223-175055.jpg
Essential to do kickbacks to build tone and tighten your butt. You can also do inner and outer thighs on the cable cross.

These straps typically have fur inside to cut down on friction and cushion the straps. Who wants to use someone’s else’s sweat soaked straps yuk!

Al1ve Magnetics (optional, but highly supportive):

Protein Shaker with ETB:

Water Bottle:

Product Review: Kai Tak Earring – Appetite Suppression through the Ancient Art of Acupressure and Magnetism! *

20140219-141731.jpg

ACU – PRESSURE STIMULATION

A “tiny” Earring with “strong” effects!

Acupressure stimulation is a traditional Chinese technique on the same ideas as acupuncture. KAI TAK is Simple; yet most effective method ever devised to treat major Ear points without resorting to needle acupuncture or ear stapling.

It was Dr. Paul Nogier in 1950 who accurately mapped the location on the ear, which suppresses appetite. Still, it was not Until Swiss Dr. Emil Schaerer invented the KAI TAK A painless, safe and most effective appetite suppressor.

How does the KAI TAK work?

Designed to look like a fashionable earring with a forcible Adjusted Bio-magnet stimulating the “craving point” (as shown on diagram) suppressing the appetite by sending a message of Fullness to the brain. It’s recommended wearing the clip for a Minimum of 6 hours daily, especially 2 hours before mealtime. However, it also can be worn during the entire day (not while sleeping).

KAI TAK was introduced in Europe, hundreds of thousands of clips have been sold. Literally thousands of letters attesting to the effectiveness have been received. KAI TAK is the only product of its nature in the entire world.

Eat all you want – you’ll just want less.
100% natural without side effects.
Say Goodbye to unwanted pounds…
Over the past decade, acupressure and acupuncture has gained widespread Acceptance in the united states for the treatment of a variety of conditions. In fact, as reported on the CBS Television Show “60 Minutes”, acupuncture is being used in government funded programs for the treatment of drug addiction.

Acupressure, used in controlling appetite, works on precisely the same principle. Centuries ago, the Chinese Determined that acupressure points are located in concentrated areas on the ear. However, it was only in this Century that the work of Dr. Emil Schaerer of Switzerland lead to the breakthrough device which hamsters the Power of acupressure to suppress the appetite easily safely, and inexpensively. After years of testing and Refinement in Switzerland, KAI TAK is now available World Wide.

Eat ALL you Want, You’ll just want LESS

I Wore the Kai Tak for an hour and I bumped my ear slightly and it hurts where the earring is! At first I didn’t feel it until I bumped it, and it hurt bad so I had to remove it to find a dent where it was. I moved it a little lower.

**Update**
I have to move this thing every hour! And it freaking hurts! And my pain tolerance is pretty high! I hope I eventually get used to the pressure or this test is going to be really fast!

What I put myself through for my readers!! Ugh! Lol

What if I use the Kai Tak (magnetic Earring) and Al1ve Magnetics arm & calf sleeves together! I feel sorry for electronics anywhere near my magnetic field lol!

I finally took it off at midnight! Time for bed! Thank God! It hurt lol

20140219-141649.jpg

**Update** February 19th 2014
I had it on for 2 hours then took it off and now my ear is throbbing in that spot!!

**Update** February 20th 2014
I think this works my the Major Payne theory of getting your mind off the pain!

http://youtu.be/I1oAwRVdhEw

Ugh!

**Update** February 24th 2014
Low Carb day! Earring on! I’m hungry trying to hold out till 8:30-9pm

Will it work?

Lasted till 9 but then had urge to binge! Luckily; I saved the calories!

Now 2hrs till my final meal for the night!

Do I think it passed this test? No! Positive note: it’s not excruciating pain yet!

**Update** February 25th 2014
Well; I have this thing on my ear and it’s not working! I’m starving and I just ate! So it’s not even curbing my appetite let alone suppressing it!

I can’t wait to get them tomorrow!!

I got the calves today!! And I wore them since I got them at 1pm and just took them off at 7pm at first they were really tight and then they got super comfortable.

**Update** January 12th 2014
I just completed and passed my military pt test. While doing the cardio portion of the test I typically suffer extreme shin splints maybe because of the 1hr a day 7 days a week elliptical sessions I am doing to shred up. Anyway; I wore the comfortable Al1ve Magnetics Calf sleeves and I didn’t get any shin splints at all! I’m not saying it made me go longer or faster, but I didn’t get shin splints which actually made me go faster. Instead of feeling the pain in the Shins causing me to slow; I felt my Quads tightening and getting sore and they are a much bigger muscle! So they last longer!

I would have to give the calf sleeves a giant 2 thumbs up!

Now to the arm sleeves, unfortunately the pair I have are too small for me, so I can’t test them, which is bad, because in the gym I see a bunch of people wearing elbow wraps and if I had a pair of black wraps that looked badass and felt much softer, and had a comfortable fit, plus offered magno-therapy, moisture wicking and a cooling sensation; I could definitely get them to switch, especially since they are affordable!

**Update** January 17th 2014
Just got my sleeves!

20140116-115455.jpg
Had to try them on! Can’t Wait till tomorrow for a full review!

20140117-205803.jpg
Me rocking the Al1ve Magnetics Arm Sleeves while curling a 75lb dumbbell with a pair of limited edition Black FatGripz!

How do I like the sleeves? Almost as much as the calves!! The arms are a little harder to put on due to the length, but once on they are comfortable! I have a torn tendon in my lt forearm and when I do a certain angle I can feel it popping around in there! I get an electric shock like twinge up my entire forearm from wrist to my elbow. Just like if u stretch out a rubber band and pull one side and sling someone with it. Like a little popping in there. Well; the sleeve cuts it in half. I think if I wore the Alive Magnetics wrist band under the sleeve the combination of the compression might stop it along with the magnets in the wrist cuffs.

I was having a hard time burning out my biceps today. Maybe the sleeves did allow me to go longer and harder?
No elbow pain! And they were super comfortable!

In fact a bunch of people kept walking over and asking what they were and said they looked badass!

Check them out! Al1ve Magnetics! And you too can look like a BadAss!!

Today is chest & triceps the most important day for the arm sleeves! Stay tuned for reviews! I often get elbow pain from heavy vbar push downs! Partly because, I am compensating for my rt shoulder.

(There is other cutting edge compression gear on the market such as Tommie Copper. They see copper threads in the material kind of like Phiten and their titanium. When asked to go head to head with Al1ve Magnetics Tommie Copper declined at this time!)

**Update** January 29th 2014
I found a Police officer using the sleeves at La Fitness and I decided to interview him.

20140129-123112.jpg

20140129-123128.jpg
When asked about the Al1ve Magnetics arm sleeves:
“I love the sleeves they have alleviated my elbow pain when lifting” “I feel like a million bucks when wearing them”
“I love the sleeves”

I told him that I love the sleeves too but most of all I love the calf sleeves! If I had the wrists I would wear them all over. In place of my power balance wrist band. The sleeves are cool, but I can’t wear them for extended periods as I would like to. I use the arm sleeves for upper body workouts. I could wear the wrists for upper body, lower body, cardio, and even out and about at night! As they are fashionable. I prefer the black as they can be worn with anything.

Stay tuned more pics to come!

**Update** January 29th 2014
I stopped using the calf sleeves for a week and I have been experiencing bad knee pain. The first time I used them I was experiencing the same pain and wearing them alleviated them, so I am trying that again today!
Stay tuned!

**Update**
Believe it or not, they helped alleviate the knee pain enough so I could do my second half hour of cardio! Idk about tomorrow lol!
