Benefits of Chromium Supplements
What Is Chromium?
Chromium is an essential mineral that humans require in trace amounts. The b ody needs chromium for normal health and growth.
Chromium is one of the key minerals involved in controlling both blood sugar levels and f at levels. As the main component of Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), chromium assists insulin in reducing blood glucose, by stimulating glucose uptake by the muscles and other tissues.
When chromium levels are low, the circulating level of GTF is low, and insulin is then less effective in reducing blood sugar. Blood sugar levels therefore remain high, stimulating further insulin release, which is still blocked from being effective etc, etc. The perpetuation of this cycle, and its resultant effects are known as insulin resistance, the precondition leading to diabetes.
The short term symptoms of chromium deficiency are those of glucose intolerance, such as hypoglycemia and mood swings associated with ups and downs in blood glucose levels, especially after carbohydrate meals. Especially if the carbohydrates have a high glycemic index.
Longer term, the problems can be expected are those associated with diabetes, which is an almost inevitable consequence of chromium deficiency. High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and obesity are all to be expected.
Necessary for many bodily processes, chromium is important in the burning of carbohydrates and f ats in the b ody, and in the proper functioning of insulin. That is, it helps insulin to do its work of making blood sugar available to the cells.
Many believe that taking chromium helps reduce b ody f at, and that it also helps improve muscle tone.
The benefits of chromium also include controlling f at and cholesterol levels in the blood, and if adequate amounts are provided to the b ody, it can help to prevent hypertension or high blood pressure.
The biggest benefit of Chromium may be its effect on suppressing appetite, which leads to f at l oss.
For people who are unable to get enough chromium in their regular diet or who have a need for more chromium, chromium supplements may be necessary.
Chromium is just one of the supplements in…

Multi Angle Training Workout
When talking about multi-angle training in order to maximize your gains you should be aware that we are not all the same. It is important to note here that any bodybuilder who has been training for 18 months or more will know that the key to continued success is simply “progression”.
This means that if you get to a point in your training that you go to the gym and lift the same weights that you did last week then you know very well that nothing will happen, or rather very little. Multi-angle workouts is something that can possibly help you break out of that plateau.
There are many different and creative ways of using multi-angles and we will only be looking at chest in this article only because going through the whole body would just land up being too long to digest in one sitting.
Unless you are one of the fortunate few that have chosen your parents correctly and you the genetics of a Greek God you will need to keep an open mind about your continuing progress. The only way you are going to keep putting on good quality muscle is by learning and experimenting.
It is important to mention here that most if not all the recommendations for sets and reps written below are not for beginners. The reason is simply that a beginner will not be able to cope with the physical and mental training intensity of what is recommended.
Just a brief note on multi-angle workouts is that they are specifically used in order to vary motor unit recruitment and create as much stimulation as possible.
Multi Angle Chest Workout
1. Bench Press
2. Incline Dumbbell Bench Press
4. Dumbbell Fly or Peck Deck
Do 4 giant sets.
Each exercise is performed for a max of 8 or 10 reps, although this drops off heavily as you fatigue.
No rest between sets / 90 seconds rest between each cycle.
Hypertrophy workouts should be as short as possible, whilst also squeezing in as much volume as we can. With the wildly differing angles and motor unit recruitment it could mean that the performance drop off and fatigue isnt as great as if exercises were more similar in design.
