 Have a Ball

Add a Swiss ball or medicine ball, and these 10 common exercises become uncommonly better
By: Scott Quill



Bench Press

Lie on a Swiss ball and have your workout partner hand you a barbell loaded with a 5-pound plate on one side and a 10-pound plate on the other. (You can use dumbbells if you train alone.) As you press the weight up and lower it, focus on keeping the bar from dipping to the heavier side, says Men's Health exercise advisor Mike Mejia, C.S.C.S. This will work the small, stabilizing muscles in your shoulders. Do five or six slow, controlled repetitions.
Grab a medicine ball and lie faceup on the floor. Raise your legs and back until only your butt is touching the floor and your body forms a V. Holding the medicine ball in front of your chest, twist your torso to the left and touch the ball to the floor, then twist to the right and touch the ball to the floor. That's one rep. Do two sets of 15.
Hamstring Curl
Improve your core stability with this move from Jon Crosby, C.S.C.S. Lie on the floor with your calves on top of a Swiss ball, your back on the floor, and your arms out to the sides. Squeeze your glutes and raise your hips off the floor so your body forms a straight line. Maintaining this bridge position, pull the ball toward your butt by digging your heels into the ball. Pause when your butt is high in the air, then push the ball away until your legs are straight.
Lie with your back on a Swiss ball and your feet flat on the floor, holding a medicine ball with your arms straight above your head. Have your workout partner sit on a Swiss ball about 10 feet in front of you. As you sit up, throw the ball to your partner--aim over his head--and remain in an upright position. He should catch the ball and immediately lower his upper body on his Swiss ball, then toss the medicine ball to you as he returns to an upright position. Do 12 repetitions. Jim Liston, C.S.C.S., says this is better than any ab move you can do on the floor.
Incline Chest Press
Grab a pair of light dumbbells and lie on a Swiss ball, with your hips and thighs in a straight line and parallel to the floor. Holding the weights in front of your shoulders, crunch forward so that your upper body is in an inclined position. (Your hips and legs should stay still.) Now press the weights straight up from this crunch position, lower them to your shoulders, and repeat.

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
