From Muscular Myth to CEO!
Finally, after what was in many places the coldest winter in history, the mercury is rising at last. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and bodybuilders everywhere are thinking the same thing: it’s time to get cut for summer!
You’ve been working hard for the past few months to pack on more muscle tissue, but of course you gained a bit of fluff in your bulking quest. Now you want to melt away the adipose tissue and reveal that chiseled statue underneath in all its ripped and veiny glory.
Creatine is a highly controversial supplement for many people – but it shouldn’t be! Creatine is a perfectly safe supplement with a long list of tests and evidence behind it. It is not a steroid and it is not actually banned from competition – so you don’t have to worry about using it in them either. Creatine is generally more accepted for men, but why?

Powerlifting asks competitors (or hobbyists) to max out their weights on three lifts: deadlift, squat, and the bench press. Pushing yourself to your max weight can be taxing and requires your body as a whole to work in harmony. Your muscles need to work together to power through the lift.
Yoga can help powerlifters with increased flexibility. Boosting your flexibility leads to a smaller risk of injuries, as your body will strain less with the movements themselves. The improved mobility also leads to better form and an increased capacity to lift more weight.
