Many of my contemporaries in the gym use a variety of legal sports supplements to help with their weight training and muscle mass gain.  I have used them in the past but now am completely committed to training and building up my muscle with no supplements.  I feel a lot better for doing so and have the peace of mind that I have achieved my muscle growth completely naturally with no artificial aids or sports supplements.

One of the most popular aids to weight training is something called the Creatine sports supplement.  Creatine helps to increase your muscle gain, but my experiences of using Creatine sports supplements have been negative.  I didn’t notice any visible muscle improvements in over three months of use, plus had some unpleasant side effects to using Creatine which included stomach cramps and frequent trips to the toilet.

If you are going to use a Creatine sports supplement then I would advise you always go and have a consultation at your local medical center.  They will be able to tell you if it is a good idea for you to take Creatine or not.  They will also help you look at other body building favourites including Nitric Oxide supplements and whether or not your body will be compatible or not.

Nitric Oxide supplements are popular because they give you that feeling of being really pumped up when you leave the gym, but as with the Creatine sports supplement, I prefer a natural look to my body – and have achieved the physique I am really happy with through pure motivation and hard work.

By advice to any budding weight lifter or body builder who is just starting out would be to try and attain your goals with sheer will power – although sports supplements are very popular in the gym and do work for a lot of guys, there is nothing better than attaining muscle without any help apart from pumping weights all day – give it a go and see how you get on.

Although hiking can be a wonderful and exciting experience, there are also some challenges that can be met along the way in engaging in this activity. One major problem is being able to gain access to drinking water that is clean and safe. Yes it is true that there are numerous bodies of water out there such as rivers, ponds, lakes and streams. However, these water sources are not completely safe. There is a great possibility that they have organisms and other contaminants in them. Due to this reason, a water filter could be a great piece of camping gear. Do you know how to use one? If not, here is a guide that you can follow on how to use hiking water filters

Before anything else, you must first prepare the following; a toothbrush, iodine tablets and water filter. When all of these are ready, what you need to do first is to select a filter. Make sure that the filter you bought is of good quality and is one that has the ability to fight water parasites and other substances. Choose one that has a 1 micron or less pore size. Now if you already have the water filter in your hands get the manual and read the instructions. It would really help a lot if you become familiar with the instructions in it. Bring this manual with you to your trip.

Once the water supply is already nearby, get some water and place it inside your filter. Be sure to use clear running water. However, if this type of water is hard to find, just let the debris in the water gather first. Once this is done, scrub them off. It is only normal that your filter would experience some clogging so don’t worry if this happens. You can now use the toothbrush to help you in accomplishing this task. Wash your filter in order to ensure that it is already clean once you use it again. Always use these steps when using hiking water filters and you will do just fine.
