HMB Supplement Review, Benefits of Nuts, and the Necessity of Periodization

HMB to Prevent Muscle Breakdown, Nuts to Improve Longevity, and Periodization for Optimal Strength and Hypertrophy

Season 1, episode 8
37 min / Published

On this episode we discuss topics in supplementation (the science and efficacy behind HMB), nutrition (the health benefits of nuts), and training (the necessity of creating a long-term training plan utilizing periodization). 


Is HMB the most underrated supplement in the supplement industry? Does its inclusion in Kino Aminos greatly boost the efficacy of the product? We are going to use scientific, peer-reviewed studies to discuss the actual mechanism of HMB and why that mechanism causes it to be effective in certain situations and not so effective in others. With this information, you will be able to decide whether or not HMB is worth it for you! Watch the video version below.




We discuss the benefits of almonds, pistachios, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, pecans. All these nuts and more are often referred to as "power-foods" due to the immense amount of micronutrients present in only one ounce. In this video, we breakdown the macronutrients and micronutrients of nuts and explain how these micronutrients allow us to achieve a great amount of health benefits simply by consuming 1 handful of nuts per day. Watch the discussion go down below.



We discuss why is it absolutely crucial that you plan out your training program for the entire year, instead of simply for the week? We answer that question in today’s video, in which we discuss the invaluable benefits of a periodized training program. Specifically, we define periodization and what variables it manipulates in order to deliver its amazing benefits for strength, hypertrophy, and injury prevention. We will discuss the scientific mechanism of periodization, the peer-reviewed studies that demonstrate its practical benefits, and finally we will discuss how to incorporate periodization into your annual training program. See below for the video version.
