4 Reasons why using pure whey protein can enhance your workout

For so many years, whey protein has been used as a dietary supplement. Sportsmen and bodybuilders alike use this with their exercising and muscle-building activities. It has become one of the most interesting products to consumers when it comes to health supplements because of its benefits. As we all know, protein is needed for our muscles to get repaired from being worn out from intense exercise. When our muscles are stressed due to strenuous activities, our muscles can actually break down. This is why if we engage in such activities, we need as much protein in our body.

While having a full lean protein diet, fiber-rich, and vitamin-rich diet is giving your body what it needs, it has been proven that whey protein is easier and faster to absorb than the protein found in foods. It is a great alternative for having access to protein if you are unable to eat certain types of food.

Here are four reasons why you need to start using whey protein to enhance your workout.

 

  1. It promotes muscle growth.

As we age, our muscle mass naturally declines and could result in weight gain. It also heightens the chances of getting chronic diseases. And when your body is lacking in protein diet, it would be pretty much harder to go back up. This is why it is good to take in health supplements such as Immunopro for this. Immunopro is pure whey protein that is rich in leucine, which is highly effective in the prevention of muscle loss. It can also improve one’s strength and physical look.

  1. It helps reduce hunger as it is highly satiating.

When we have goals for losing weight, one of the most challenging things we avoid is eating too much food. When you feel hungry all the time, you will have the tendency to eat as much. However, taking whey protein will make you feel full. It can successfully suppress your cravings for any food, which will eventually end your desire to always eat.

 

  1. It improves immunity.

 

One of the things that can cause any health-related issues in your immune system is the decrease of glutathione levels. This happens when you are always on stressful activities. And when there is a glutathione deficiency, you will have a reduced ability to detoxify and could lead to a reduced supply of oxygen and nutrients to your body. However, it has been discovered that by supplementing your body with whey protein, you will have a lesser reduction of glutathione levels in your body.

 

  1. It provides great benefits in your general wellness.

Whey protein does not end on providing health benefits for bodybuilding, an increase of muscles, and reduction of fat. It is capable of providing more than that. In today’s age, new technology is springing up and research on whey protein is still ongoing. Right now, based on the uncovered discoveries so far, there are a lot of health benefits that all of us can take advantage of, especially that as we age, our body’s natural processes start to slow down.

Celebrity Riding Fans

Horse Riding is often described as the Sport of Kings, but these days it could also be as truthfully described as the sport of the glamorous celebrity. The list of well known names who enjoy carrying horse treats in their pockets in their spare time is both long and surprising.

I’ve compiled a list of just some of the celebrities who take the opportunity to ride in their downtime.

Madonna

Top of any list of celebrity riding fans has to be the queen of pop herself, Madonna. We all know that Madonna had a very ‘English phase’ during her marriage to film director Guy Ritchie, where, as well as drinking tea, talking with a cut glass accent and wearing a nifty line in tea dresses, Madonna developed a passion for horses that continues to this day (she currently owns two.)

I can’t help thinking that the fashion maverick just loved the look of jodphurs and a riding hat (and we all know she’s been partial to a whip at times), but the fact that she actually trained, and with none other than William Fox Pitt clearly indicates that the one time Material Girl has clearly been bitten by the riding bug.

Mary Kate Olsen

These days she is better known for her fashion designing skills along with her sister Ashley for her label ‘The Row’, but Mary Kate is actually an accomplished horsewoman who has competed, most famously at the Hampton Classic Show. From a fashionista point of view, can you imagine how stylish The Row riding apparel would be. I think Mary Kate could be onto a real winner with that.

Bella Hadid

It sort of seems apt that the coltish, beautiful Bella Hadid is another lady with a passion for being in the saddle. The lovely supermodel is said to aspire to ride in an Olympic Games, well, there’s certainly still time to get the practice in before Tokyo 2020.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga became a fan of horse after she was presented with one by her record company. She is now the proud owner of a stallion called…wait for it…Trigger. (How Original!) Gaga is one person I would totally love to see on a horse, can you imagine the fun she would have with equestrian gear, and has for the boots….

Jordan/Katie Price

No roundup of celebrity horse riding fans can be complete without some mention of Jordan/Katie Price, or whatever she happens to be calling herself this week. Katie is a lover of dressage (couldn’t you guess that a woman obsessed with pink would also love the idea of dancing horses) and is actually, all joking aside, an accomplished horsewoman who is very passionate about horse sports, also playing polo. She also happens to have her own equestrian clothing line, KP equestrian, which, has you can probably imagine, is very pink, very tongue in cheek and a whole lot of fun. After all, who could resist a ‘50 shades of hay’ t-shirt…

Are you a fan of horses, have you ever tried horse riding?

Creating a mini Wembley Stadium in your Garden

Ask any young football fan what their ultimate dream is, and, chances are they will mention scoring the winning goal in a World Cup final with the match held at Wembley Stadium. But although the chance of becoming a modern day Geoff Hurst is pretty slim, that doesn’t mean that all those budding Ronaldo’s and Messi’s should give up on their dreams altogether.

If you can’t get to Wembley, then maybe Wembley should come to you. Any garden has the capacity to become your very own Wembley Stadium, after all it only needs four sides and corners, and garden fences and walls already give the feeling of a stadium. These days, rather than using jumpers for goalposts, you can actually buy a pretty good set of goalposts, and maybe even two. The good news is that the latest range of pop up football goals are easy enough to erect by just one person in double quick time, and, because they are pop up, they are actually easy to move and transport around. Many sets will easily fit into a car boot, so they can be transported to the park, beach or any open play space. They can also be packed away and stored if you decide you want to use your garden space for a different purpose, taking up very little room in your garden shed or storage space. Once you want to use the goal again, the process is simple – no need for assembly or tools.

It is always a good idea to get your kids playing outside, rather than stuck in front of a games console, and pop up goals are a great way to encourage sport and exercise through actually playing football for real; rather than just playing it on Fifa 17. With goals coming in a range of sizes, these will work for children of all age ranges, and gardens of all sizes. The goals are also a great option for mini sports teams and junior football leagues as they are both transportable and affordable – if you practice on a park with no permanent goals, these are a reliable and practical idea.

If you are considering turning your garden into your very own Wembley Stadium, I can definitely recommend the Samba goals. We got a set of these for my son Joe’s last birthday. These are easy to erect yet have thick posts that are sturdy enough for those shots that hit the bar or post (my lad has won the crossbar challenge on more than one occasion and the goal is still standing.) If you are still unsure, Stadia Sports have a great phone or email service where you can put all your questions to an expert in order to ensure you get the right goals for your child, helping them to achieve their own sporting goals in the process.

With the football season just about to begin for thousands of junior football league teams, and now in full flow for the Premier League and EFL, now is the right time to invest in your own set of workable goals.
