BCAAs: Branched Chain A...

BCAAs or branched chain amino acids are essential for your body to function. We are able to get BCAAs through our diet, and more specifically through the proteins we eat. BCAAs are made up of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. The main use of BCAAs that we are interested in is their...

Creatine: The most prov...

I don’t think there is a supplement (outside of Shakeology) that i get more emails and questions about. Is creatine safe? Can I take it when I am on Fat Shredder? Will it make me fat? What kind should I buy? Do I need to cycle it? This post sets out to answer a lot of those...

Substitute for Shakeolo...

Two of the most common questions I get about Shakeology are: “What can I use as a substitute for Shakeology?” and “Why is it so expensive?” These are good questions. As you know, I always try to give you all my honest feedback on every product, whether good or...

Shakeology Recipes

Shakeology is what I’ve started my day off with every day for well over 3 years now.  These days, I rotate between Vanilla and Chocolate.  To be honest, most days I crave the Vanilla in the morning, and if I do a second Shakeology in the evening I go with Chocolate.  If you have...

Coach Wayne’s Cur...

Supplements are always on everyone’s minds. I know through a lot of marketing and press, supplement companies offer you the world. That’s why I continue to get the question, “What supplements do you use Coach Wayne?”.  Before I get into what I regularly use, I think...

Have you ever read something on teamRIPPED and thought, “What the heck is he talking about? Is that another language?” I know from emailing with many of you, it’s easy for me to throw out terms and abbreviations you might be familiar with (yet!). Beachbody, P90X, Insanity, and...

Are Supplements Necessa...

Supplements, are they necessary? Maybe and maybe not. For those of you who have been following my round by round “goals”, you may remember that in round 5, I completed a 4 month hybrid in which I used very minimal supplements. I wanted to evaluate a plausible long-term...
