My latest report, which is a collection of useful whey information you can use to make smart choices when purchasing whey and learn what makes whey a unique protein source, both for active people/athlete, as well as health minded individuals.
Whey protein is one of the most popular protein supplements sold. It’s used by athletes of all kinds and those looking to benefit from this protein, that has literally been used as a medicinal food for thousands of years. However, much confusion over whey abounds. What types are best? Isolates or concentrates? Grass fed organic whey best? Can it help with weight loss? What about cancer and immunity? Where does whey come from and what about compounds within whey (such as lactoferrin) that have their own potential benefits?
Fifty Shades Of Whey will clear up the confusion – using objective science based information vs. marketing and hyperbole so common – to help users of this food supplement make smart decisions on whey proteins. And it’s FREE!

I have been traveling to Panama and surrounding countries this past year or so. An interest in Fitness/Body Building has been growing rapidly in the region. Some of you may recall some prior vids I did from Panama, specifically Power Club Gym, a chain in Panama I frequent.
Recently, the PowerClub put on their first fitness/body building competition, and I was invited to be a guest judge for their show. Here’s the vid from the show.
Should you invest in a home gym? If so, what do you need in the home gym? Are home gyms for everyone? No! Here’s some thoughts on the issue of home gyms vs commercial gyms.
I see this as a continuum going from Anabolic <—> Catabolic with people tending to fall on either side of point 0, tending toward one or the other. Me, I’d say I’m a 2 on the right side of point 0.
Metabolism 5- 4 – 3 – 2 – 0 – 1 -2 – 3 – 4 – 5 Catabolic Metabolism
Hallmarks of the Anabolic Metabolism:
• Put on muscle easily
• Has difficulty getting lean
• Will respond well to lower carb intakes (approx 30%)
• Responds well to higher training volumes
Hallmarks of the Catabolic Metabolism:
• Has difficulty adding LBM
• Gets lean easily (but has difficulty retaining LBM)
• Responds well to higher carb intakes (approx 50%)
• Responds best to lower training volumes
Where do drugs factor in?
The above is based on non drug using people. Drugs are the great genetic equalizer: those who add muscle easily but can’t get lean are able to do so, and those who have great difficulty adding LBM, but have no problems staying/getting lean, can do so while retaining LBM. Obviously, genetic traits still play a role (or everyone would look identical and respond identical, etc) but drugs allow for genetic limitations in the above, faster recoup, ability to tolerate higher training volumes, etc.
Successful Internet Forums For Owners And Users
By Will Brink
As a student of human nature, as well as a long-time forum member and owner, I am in a good position to offer some general thoughts (call it a rant if you like!) and guidelines regarding ‘net based forums. I guess I am as qualified as any to comment from the user’s side of the equation. Currently, I read or post to a least a dozen forums per day, some revolving around my line of work and others related to my hobbies and interests: fitness, health, bodybuilding, longevity, weight loss, audio-video, military, law enforcement, firearms—to name a few.
I can also comment from the owner’s side, as my two forums—Fat Loss Revealed and Bodybuilding Revealed—have over 10,000 active members. Not the largest forums on the ‘net for sure, but not small time either.
As mentioned in prior posts, my articles can be found in various languages, such as Polish, Italian, and Spanish, to name a few. One Spanish language fitness magazine my articles can be found in is Revista CorpoSano. This issue, I’m on the cover of the magazine, with a long interview found in the magazine. I hope the Spanish speaking BrinkZone members will read it, and let others know about my articles in Spanish! Hit picture below to read the full interview.
Como se mencionó en un mensajes anteriores, mis artículos se pueden encontrar en varios idiomas, como el polaco, italiano y español, para nombrar unos pocos. Una revista española de fitness idioma mis artículos se pueden encontrar en la Revista es CorpoSano. Este problema, estoy en la portada de la revista, con una larga entrevista en la revista. Espero que los miembros de habla española BrinkZone lo lea, y que los demás sepan sobre mis artículos en español! Hit foto de abajo para leer la entrevista completa.
Some of the most popular supplements today are the so called pre-workout nitric oxide (NO) boosters 1, 2. These contain a panoply of ingredients, but the main one is arginine. The rationale goes that arginine is a nitric oxide (NO) precursor and NO is a potent vasodilator 3, 4, which in turn supposedly will boost blood flow to exercising muscles, performance and recovery. And while arginine supplementation is beneficial for various clinical populations (see below), studies in healthy adults have not unequivocally supported the marketing hype surrounding arginine supplementation and nitric oxide boosters 1, 5, 6. Why? Let’s take a look under the hood…

So You Want To Publish A Book??!
You know E-pub such as Kindle, Nook, Itunes, etc is hot right now, but don’t know where to start? Or, want a package of print and e-pub in the most cost effective approach? Need cover art?
Writing the book is often the easy part! Thus, a new service I am offering – via Brink Consulting Group – which is Publishing Services! I have been in the industry of print and E-pub a long time, so save yourself years of wasted time and $$$ and have a book done faster than you thought possible via my new service.
You can go at it alone, but I promise you, unless you know the details and requirements of EACH platform (that require ISBN #, specific formatting, etc, etc), you’ll spend FAR more time and energy then you would ever think possible…

Of course not. However, by some of their biographies, you may think they are. They will often list a string of accomplishments that sound almost identical to each other, and too good to be true… That adds confusion for people as they attempt to decide who has the credibility, experience, and accomplishments worth listening to for getting their health/fitness/bodybuilding advice. Some of you already know me from the magazines and other places, and some may be new to the BrinkZone, and perhaps looked briefly at my bio
However, as human beings are highly visual creatures, I decided a vid on some tricks used to “pad” resumes may be of interest and utility, and show some of my own accomplishments and “creds” as it relates to the health/fitness industry. Note, there are some very smart people out there giving some great info and advice.
However, for everyone of those, there’s 100 wanna be types who truly have no business supplying the advice they do, and use all manner of tricks to sell products to people. That is bad for the industry in general in my view. Thus, it behooves people to take some extra time to perhaps track down some of the claims made by those giving advice on health, fitness, bodybuilding, weight loss, etc., and don’t take claims of accomplishments at face value.
