BPI Sports is introducting a new thermogenic weight-loss supplement, Roxy.

Roxy is BPI’s new, advanced fat-burner, and seems to be an upgraded formulation of it’s older version Roxy Lean.

What’s Inside Roxy?

Roxy provides a proprietary blend of several different ingredients: caffeine, boerhaavia extract, ginger extract, lycopene, and yohimbine hcl.

Caffeine is a ubiquitous weight-loss ingredient found in several competing fat burners and is used to optimize weight loss and provide additional energy.

Boerhaavia extract is commonly used as an anti-inflammatory. Consequently, anti-inflammatories are often included in weight-loss supplements in an effort to combat weight gain, one of the body’s responses that are intricately related to inflammation.  [1]

 

Ginger is another ingredient that is used to aid inflammation. Also, a pilot study found that ginger consumption enhanced thermogenesis and also curbed hunger feelings, further validating this ingredient as a weight-loss bpi-roxy-ingredientsproponent. [2] [click to continue…]

How Much Water Should I Drink?

Q: How much water should I drink each day? I hear all kinds of answers, including 1 ounce of water for every pound of body weight, and six to eight 8-ounce glasses. Which is right?

A: Water is a vital part of any diet and exercise program — not to mention life in general — because it aids every aspect of bodily function. Water is a huge component of muscle and is important for energy production, so if you want to make the most of your workout, make sure you’re well hydrated.

There is no real one-size-fits-all approach to water consumption. As a general rule of thumb, men should consume 128 ounces of water daily, and women should consume 88 ounces, but this doesn’t mean you need to drink this amount of water every day. Other beverages, as well as the moisture content of foods, also count toward your water intake. The following factors affect how much water you should consume: [click to continue…]

Ready, Set, Row!

in Workouts

Looking for a cardio workout that will drip the fat off and that will also change it up from the boring treadmill or elliptical?

Why Rowing?

Rowing is an all-over body workout because it’s cardio that utilizes your back, core and arms, says Claudia.

“[Rowing is] obviously excellent for cardio and you use, in order, your legs and then your back and then your arms. So there are other sports that are good [for fitness], but they usually focus on one or two body parts as opposed to all of them,” says Claudia.

In fact, rowing is not only a good workout for those who want to get in shape, it can also increase an athlete’s performance in other sports. “A lot of colleges are now having basketball teams sit on rowing machines to teach them body discipline,” says Claudia.

Another positive aspect of rowing is that it increases core strength. It also increases flexibility, balance, and can even be used in rehab for an injured shoulder or back. “I think it’s great, and you can do it forever,” says Claudia. “Once you learn how to row, you can do it when you’re 90.”

The Truth About The Caveman Diet

So what makes this diet so popular? Well the title really says it all. The Caveman Diet or Paleo Diet as most refer to it by, is based on food the caveman ate back in the Paleolithic Age. The whole concept of this diet is to eat healthier by consuming the food that our bodies are intended to eat, food that is natural and comes from good old mother nature. In other words hunter gatherer foods, which is the only thing that was available to ancient man before the big agricultural boom some 10,000 years ago.

Contrary to what you may be thinking, cavemen were actually athletic individuals. Seeing as how they had to hunt and gather their food and even travel long distances at times to do so, made them very fit. The food that they ate played a big role in their athletic abilities as well as their health. Ancient man knew what foods to avoid in order to survive and got plenty of exercise.

So what does the caveman diet consist of? [click to continue…]
