Athlete, personal trainer, nutritionist, Men`s physique, IFBB judge, Fitness model.

Alex started his career as a personal trainer 12 years ago while he was an undergrad. In 2010 Alex decided to compete in his home country in order to go on to international competitions. He won Mr. Lebanon, then left for England to continue his studies at the University of Oxford Brookes. (Studying for his masters in sport and exercise nutrition.)

While in England, Alex obtained certification as IFBB judge.

Alex is also a member of the international society for sport nutrition (ISSN).

Kettlebell, or as it was called the Russian kettlebell, is a kettle shape metal weight that was first used by the Russians back in the 18th century. That is where the name/idea came from.

Kettlebell swings should be implemented in our weekly workout. Why?

In our modern world we spend the majority of our days doing things in front of us with terrible posture. We crouch over keyboards while our chests cave in and our hips shorten from sitting. We drive for hours and not move with our arms in front of us while, again, we’re seated with shortened hip flexors.

Often times we see that word, either when reading about nutrition or on a sport supplement. What is recovery and how important is the post workout phase?

For any athlete or a person who is seeking results recovery is crucial. If you fail to be fully recovered, for the next physical attempt, which can be the next day or in few hours for some athletes. That can result in bad performance, quick fatigue, weak ability to finish a certain exercise, and if you are in a game then most probably you will lose.

Athletic Injury

Every year, 1.2 billion viewers tune in to watch their favorite soccer teams play in the World Cup. Soccer players, like most athletes, focus on the game they are committed to during training. Some of them do not exercise enough in the right way when it comes to weight training (such as strength training), to make them stronger and perform better, or even have fewer injuries.

Glutamine To Be An Essential Amino Acid

As we know L-glutamine is a non-essential amino acid. Throughout the years studies on glutamine showed that we need it the same as we need other essential amino acids. Especially if you are a person with a lot of stress or you put a lot of stress on your body.

Whether you are an athlete that trains hard for long hours or a business person that works for long hours you need to use glutamine and on daily basis.

New Year: A New Healthier You

Why not make one of your goals for this year a New Healthier you.

Start everything from scratch but do not forget what food makes you feel bad. If you have any food allergies or you are sensitive to any kind of food, always keep that in mind, and do not go for the temptation.

A Better You

Who owes you? Nobody owes you anything. It’s a cold hard fact that once understood saves you years of disappointment. 

If you’re here to make a difference, (aren’t we all) then you own the world and yourself a reason to notice your contributions, like standing up for your beliefs, sharing your wisdom and changing your opinions based on new insight.

Wake up, drink 2 cups of water, roll your shoulders

Take couple of minutes to breath, brain storm

If you like coffee, then have a cup; if not, you can have caffeine pills.

Take 2 grams of L-Carnitine, take between 200mg - 400mg chromium picolinate plus ginkgo biloba, and 1 gram of vitamin C

Consume less calories than your body burns for 6 days, then on day number 7 check your weight.

Track your progress by taking pictures and tape measurements of your wait size, not by the weight scale alone.
