  • BULK POWDERS™ Interview

    In January we had the opportunity to film at BKK Fighters in Colchester with professional Thai fighter Stuart Barlegs.

  • Creatine Ethyl Ester Review

    Creatine, in it’s purest form, is the most popular sports supplement on the market, second only to Whey Protein. It’s performance benefits are widely reported, leading to its adoption by many athletes as their preferred form of supplementation, and it’s clear to see the reasons why.   Creatine is the fuel source for the energy […]

  • HMB

    In the second of our series, we look at another supplement that not everyone is familiar with. This month, we focus on HMB. For experienced sports nutrition users, HMB is nothing new.

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

    In our new feature, we take a look at some of the lesser known products in our range.

  • Price Guarantee or Everyday Low Price?

    A price match promise sounds quite customer friendly, when you first look at it. It sounds like a retailer who is really getting behind his prices and setting out the stall as the price leader. So why doesn’t do this? First of all, who do you associate with price matches?  Funnily enough, John Lewis […]

  • Ingredient Sprinkling

How about a sprinkling of Beta Alanine in your pre-workout drink or a […]

That’s why we don’t necessarily have the sexiest product descriptions in the industry.  We tend to […]

Consuming these amounts of protein can […]

    Summer is finally here and, for many, a week or two lounging about on the beach isn’t far off. But do you feel beach ready? Do you feel confident joining the swim short and bikini clad revellers knowing full well that 99% of the beach is envious of your physique? If you’ve bulked in the winter and […]
