What is the best cardio to do if you are trying to maintain muscle mass? Well studies have shown that long distance or endurance running is the worst. If you are looking to maintain muscle mass the best cardio training is cycling which was proven in a study conducted at the University Of Tampa. Cycling is a superior cardio exercise for maintaining muscle mass because it is a compound movement exercise. Because cycling requires you to use hip flexion and multi-joint activation of muscles you would be using in power movements such as squats and dead lifts. Other great carido exercises for maintaining muscle mass are sprinting and rowing. So forget about the long distance runs and waling on an incline on the treadmill, start incorporating rowing, sprinting, and cycling into your workout routines and watch the muscle pile up.
O.K. I am always looking for new and quality protein products, and I really found a great one. Isopure Natural Protein Powder. A lot of protein powders out there are claiming to be low in sugar and good for you, but the fact remains they are only low or no sugar because they add sucralose. If you are not o.K. with consuming sucralose then you should be buying this protein powder. This protein powder is made with 100% Whey Protein Isolates, and no added crap. It is lactose free and contains 26 grams of protein per serving.

I am always looking for new ways to get my required protein for the day, and Isopure made it easy. I have tried protein liquid shots before and they were pretty tough to get down, so I was a little hesitant to give this a try. I just finished a killer workout and needed some protein fast. I picked up a bottle of Isopure zero carb, Icy Orange and gave it a try. To my surprise it was really easy to go down and actually was pretty refreshing with no after taste. The best part about the drink is there is no mixing or clumping. Just open up and drink. The drink advertises no aspertame or preservatives, but it does contain sucralose. Here are the nutritional facts.
