HOW IT WORKS

Utilizing 1MHz per second, the ultrasonic waves (alone or coupled with our ‘slimming gel’) generate frictional heat which accelerates blood circulation, muscle relaxation and decomposes cellulite to break down excess fatty tissue

  • Microscopic bubbles within the fat cells that expand are formed
  • Pressure is produced that causes the fat cells to burst
  • And release the fatty acids to be metabolized
  • NO HEAT is ever released the whole Process is based on Frequency

DO NOT BUY THESE!!

These are absolute shit!!

1. It says chocolate flavor! But if you read on it says unflavored! Well wtf is it! It’s unflavored these taste like shit! Like an unflavored dog food biscuit! And they are extremely dry! Thank God they offered the trial size! I almost bought the full-size one! Btw the giant bottle pictured above is tiny! It’s this big!

The Puffs aren’t Puffs at all! They are like fish food pellets! And the fish food probably tastes better!

These absolutely lose! However; since they claim to be grass fed protein, they are definitely ahead of the chemical Puffs!!

1. ISO Poofs! That actually taste like apple cinnamon!

2. Promix no taste pellets! I refuse to call them Puffs!

3. Twin Peaks chemical Puffs!

Number 3 is in the garbage and Number 2 is sure to follow!


Supplement Review: Battle of the Protein Poofs! MPA ISO Poofs

MPA Iso Poofs is the perfect snack or cereal for anyone who enjoys satisfying a sweet craving without sabotaging their dieting efforts. In fact, you can conveniently incorporate MPA Iso Poofs into your nutrition plan as it would be a sufficient animal protein or whey protein shake replacement.

I created MPA Iso Poofs to be as low in dietary fat and carbohydrates as possible. I wanted to create something that would be interchangeable with your standard whey protein shakes that people use in diet plans regularly.

Let’s face it, strict dieting to get into amazing shape takes strong discipline, rigid dieting practices, and the mental toughness to endure oftentimes a bland and monotonous nutrition protocol. MPA Iso Poofs allows you to keep to your high protein, low fat, and low carbohydrate program perfectly while enjoying something that satisfies your “sweet tooth” or sugar-filled craving!

MPA Iso Poofs can be enjoyed as a delicious cereal, accompanied with your choice of fat-free milk, or your preferred milk replacement i.e., (Almond, coconut, cashew milk etc…). You could also use pasteurized liquid egg whites as a “milk substitute” as well.

MPA Iso Poofs can also be enjoyed simply as a snack, eaten dry like you would a bowl of popcorn or any “finger food” snack.

Finally you can truly enjoy and consume something sweet, delicious, yet nutritious every day on your strict diet plan without sabotaging your progress. Don’t be fooled by other supposed “diet friendly” food/snack products, such as chips, popcorn, bars, etc… Read their nutrition facts and while one might be “low in carbs” — it will be higher in dietary fat, and contain more oils than you should feel comfortable dieting with.

I am very particular and picky with my own nutritional needs and MPA Iso Poofs get’s the MPA stamp of approval — so you can feel confident enjoying them on your own diet.

Features & details

  • Less Than 1g of Sugar Per Serving
  • Less Than 1g of Fat Per Serving
  • 19g of Protein Per Serving
  • High Protein Cereal or Dry Snack

-MPA

The product although in a cardboard box comes in a giant ziplock bag.

ISO poofs!! Now this is the real deal!!! No chemical smell and it tastes like apple cinnamon! It also really has a cereal taste!

The calories are low and the macros are nice!

wow these taste great! They come in apple cinnamon and French toast! I want both! I want to add these as a tool to my summer cut!

Be happy losing weight! If you are miserable you might not succeed!

These make me happy!

hands down these win the battle of the poofs!

So far! We have one more entry!

Using this device daily helped overcome that pain and stiffness! Now when I use it, I sometimes barely feel it. When it does hurt, you know that area is tight and needs to be worked on!

Again this device is a life changer and worth every penny!!!


Product Review: Gym Gear – BFR Bands (blood flow restriction) bands

Disclaimer:  This blog does not constitute medical advice, nor should it be interpreted as a substitute for appropriate medical training. Consult your doctor before using.

10% off Discount code: LJB10

I got exactly what you see here, but my legs are red. I was hoping the legs had a easy on off buckle like the arms. I’m not sure how to wrap the legs. I hope there are directions!

The package is heavy and the arm wraps seemed to be very well made but I only looked at them for a second.

Unfortunately, yesterday was biceps. I’ll have to google if they are good for triceps as well.

Super Saiyan says use occlusion training on arms they use machine curl biceps and rope push down triceps at the end of the workout every 4-6 weeks they say this isn’t something you want to do every workout.

They are using a Mark Bell slingshot band. I believe this one

Which is not a good idea! It is not designed for that! You cannot adjust the bands to make sure the blood traveling into the muscle is still going on and the blood leaving is slowed down.

Don’t use products the way they aren’t intended! And if they are not in good shape, throw them out! I have seen too many people get hurt from ripped lifting straps because they keep them too long! If they start to rip throw them out!

The same goes for these bands! They are designed to be the thickness they are if they start to rip, they are no longer that wide and can cause injury!

These bands are no joke! You have to know exactly what you are doing! Listen to the directions! If there’s pain or numb hands (pins and needles) it’s too tight! You are essentially putting a tourniquet on your arm!

Tourniquets:

Leaving it on too long, causing neurovascular damage and tissue death. Generally, permanent nerve, muscle and blood vessel damage can occur after about two hours. Placing it too far away from the wound, or on the wrong type of wound (i.e. wounds at a joint) Fabricating a tourniquet from an inappropriate material.

You don’t want your limbs amputated because you are an idiot! So pay close attention to the directions!

Once you learn what you are doing and aren’t a beginner in the gym:

This seems like a great way to help me build leg strength and muscles with my military knee injury! You are supposed to lift 30% of your one rep max until failure.

So, light weight, high reps = success! That’s a dream come true for anyone with a joint injury!

I can’t wait to try it!

**Update** January 10th 2018

I tried the bands on my arms last night and I’m not sure if I tightened them enough.

I did feel tightness in the muscle especially at the top by the band site. At the end of my workout, I did 4 sets of one arm machine curl and 4 sets of triceps press down. After removing the bands the muscle was still tight at the band site for 15 mins after.

Today my triceps are actually sore, so I believe they did help!

stay tuned for legs tomorrow! This I can’t wait for!

**Update** January 11th 2018

WOW! I just did 4 sets of 15 leg extensions with 70lbs and I feel like I did a full leg workout! Next time I will save it till my last exercise instead of my first! Lol

Ok back to working out!

in case you are wondering which numbers I used because the leg straps have easy to line up numbers, my quads are too big to line up the numbers. So it was 10 and blank Lol I was about 2-3″ away from the 1.

hmm ok new update same day! I gave my legs a 15 min break to return to normal and now I am lifting more than I have since I came back six weeks ago! Maybe the bands increased the blood flow in the quads after releasing it?

Product Review: Flag nor Fail clothing

2015/01/img_4825.jpg

2015/01/img_4828.jpg

2015/01/img_4827.jpg

NO SURRENDER. NO FAILURE. NO MASS PRODUCTION

From the very beginning, we have endeavored to provide our customers with limited hand printed items. Flag Nor Fail takes pride in our approach to the apparel world, an approach not seen from most clothing brands. Our goal is not to mindlessly pump out large quantities of clothing and rake in profits — our line means more to us than that. We want to create clothing that is unique; clothing that when you wear it, you KNOW it was made specifically by our hands. We want our customers to wear our apparel with pride, knowing they are among only a few people in the world to own these particular items.

There is a beauty to the printing process that must be appreciated. Every single print we create is unique, which is part of the reason our product is so special. From the amount of ink applied and laid on the item, to the registration of the art, to the placement on the item; all of these factors change slightly from shirt to shirt. The minor inconsistencies are the nature of the hand printing process. We take pride in not selling mass-produced, machine printed goods. Printing is a personal experience, and we devote our time and effort into creating each individual piece you purchase. We put work into the product before it ever gets to you.

As always, thank you for your loyalty and support of our brand. We hope that you continue to follow our lead and put in work, every day, in every aspect of your life.

WHAT DOES FLAG NOR FAIL MEAN?

FLAG NOR FAIL is a mindset. No surrender and no failure. Flag represents surrender, much like one would wave a white flag to admit defeat. No surrender, no failure.

INVENTORY AND AVAILABILITY

All items are hand-printed in house at the FNF Warehouse and may contain imperfections in the prints. The beauty of our process is that no two prints are identical. This is what makes FNF special. Due to the hand-printed nature and effort that goes into every item in the line, our standing inventory is very small. Please understand that returns and exchanges may be a longer process than we would like due to our limited quantities and sell-outs. Once most of the items sell-out they will not be reprinted, and will no longer be available.

DELIVERY AND SHIPPING

Worldwide flat rate shipping of $5!

Delivery takes 10–15 business days inside the States on average. We are not your normal internet store that gets it to you next day. Please keep this in mind when making your purchase!

On occasion we do not have the entire order printed and we have to print the shirt to order. In these cases the order may take slightly longer to get to you. If this happens, we will make every attempt to notify you of the issue.

Overseas orders take 3–6 weeks, and on rare occasions they may take a little longer when going through customs. Once the package leaves the US, we have no control over how your country handles the package. Also, please note that in some cases your local countries customs may charge you taxes and/or other fees. We are not responsible for those fees!

Flag Nor Fail is NOT responsible for stolen or lost packages and/or packages sent to the wrong address.

*Any Domestic order returned back to us for either having an insufficient address, wrong address, unclaimed, etc., Customer will have to pay for reshipment of package. We do not cover/reimburse for shipping costs in regards to a return/exchange.
**Any international order returned back to us for either having an insufficient address, wrong address, unclaimed, etc., Customer will have to pay for Express shipping.

FLAG NOR FAIL TOURS

We will be having “WORK HUSTLE KILL TOURS” throughout the next year. During these tours we will be hitting a new gym every day, and visiting land marks along the way. The entire tour will be filmed by our team and released later on DVD. Feel free to come train with us, eat with us, or just ask us questions. The best way to keep up on tour info is to follow us on Facebook. FLAG NOR FAIL will be giving out some free-bees along the way and selling LIMITED tour shirts that you can only get while we are on tour.

QUALITY AND WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

All garments are individually hand-printed. To ensure the quality and integrity of the garment, we suggest washing them on machine wash cold, with an initial water temp not exceeding 30°C or 65–80°F.

All garments and fabrics are blends, or pre-shrunk to ensure a true fit after washing. To preserve the print as well as possible it is suggested to wash the garment inside out ( with the printed side in ).

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES

We realize that you make choices in your buying process and we want you to be happy with your purchase. We understand that returns/exchanges can be necessary and that we must meet reasonable expectations when these situations arise. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with your purchase please allow us to assist you with your order. We deal with returns on a per item basis. There are varying restocking and service fees. If you wish to make a return please contact us to discuss the matter first before sending back your items. We do not cover shipping costs for returns/exchanges.

No returns or exchanges after 30 days.

We do not accept items to be exchanged that were already previously exchanged.

Returns and Exchanges (outside the U.S.)

All sales are final outside the U.S

FIT AND SIZING

Currently FLAG NOR FAIL prints but does not produce / sew their own clothing. Before we place large orders to print we always order samples and make sure the sizing is as TRUE as possible. We are working on getting our own shirts produced / cut, but release of those shirts will not launch until mid 2013.

If you have specific sizing questions, do not hesitate to contact us, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please include your height / weight and build in the message. We will give our best suggestion.

SPECIAL ORDERS

With the recent growth of the brand, we are no longer able to do special requests.

WANT FLAG NOR FAIL TO ATTEND OR SPONSOR YOUR EVENT?

We are always looking for new exposure, and changes to branch out. If you know of an event that we may be a good fit for just let us know! Click here to contact us!

ATHLETE SPONSORSHIP

We currently do not offer any sponsorships, but we would like to in at some point in the future. If you are interested in sending us your info, we will keep it on file.

WHOLESALE PRICES

We do not offer wholesale, and are not interested in distributor accounts. FLAG NOR FAIL can only be bought on FlagNorFail.com.

The clothes are expensive but they are super soft! They do run a little small (except the T-shirts). If you are a fan of DLB Dana Linn Bailey then this is a must! Show your spirit and get Flag nor Fail! If you just want some inspiration then these are your products!


Martial Arts: Where have all the good men gone?

Where have all the good men gone?

Growing up there were a plethora of martial arts action stars:

20110821-110220.jpg
Jean Claude Van Damme
Steven Seagal
Dolph Lundgren
Bruce Lee
Brandon Lee
Jackie Chan
Jet Li
Sammo Hung
Chuck Norris
Gary Daniels
Jeff Wincott
Jeff Speakman
Wesley Snipes
Michael Jai White
Ernie Reyes
Ernie Reyes Jr.
Billy Blanks
Don the Dragon Wilson
Mark Dacascos
Etc…

Where have they gone?

Well, the Lee’s are dead, Seagal has Lupus; so his movies have gone to shit, Jeff Speakman got super fat and lost his appeal. Jackie & Sammo went back to Hong Kong, Mark Dacascos is doing freakin Iron Chef. Are you freakin kidding me!! Everyone else is either making straight to DVD crap with no storylines or they have fallen off the face of the Earth.

I thought rare new blood: Ray Park, Tony Jaa & Cyril Raffaelli would take over but they are making crap too!

Oh yeah don’t forget those movies the UFC and Tapout made:

20110821-111315.jpg

20110821-111321.jpg

20110821-111327.jpg

no storyline flops. With the exception of Redbelt that movie was great!

20110821-110904.jpg

The Expendables was an awesome movie, but we need more than one movie every couple of years!

We need new blood!! Talent scouts get out there and look!!

All we are left with is overseas Hong Kong imports which wouldn’t be bad, but all they make is ridiculous fly though the air, extremely fake, bullshit movies!! I hate those!

I know everything in movies is usually fake, one guy vs a thousand and he comes out unscathed, but at least make it semi believable! Loose the stupid wirework!!

There are plenty of martial art moves that are nasty and real. How about a Filipino movie about the Moro Warriors, there is bound to be some awesome realistic bladework.

Hollywood is wrapped up in making dark content (realistic) remakes like new superhero movies. What about a dark realistic remake of American Ninja? PS I have a great storyline for that!!

Hollywood please save us avid (and ever-growing fan-base) Martial Arts Fans and save the industry! Give us new stars!! And plenty of new movies!!
