Sulwhasoo's First Care Activating Serum Review 2018

I use it daily after cleansing. It seems to help my face absorb more serums as it acts as a serum enhancer or pre-serum, but the name.These types of products are usually very thin and a and feature ferments and help other ingredients absorb.

What is different about Sulwhasoo is it's not thin and not about ferments. It's feels and looks similar to Missha Ampoule or Estee Lauder serum. It does go in well though. For all the money I didn't find it that exciting.



Will I buy again? Probably, as I have just tried it for about 2 months.

What is A Weight Bench?

A weight bench is a piece of equipment that is similar to a normal (e.g. park) bench, but is designed for use in weight training.

How much weight should a beginner bench press

Bench press:

Warm up: 1 set of 20 repetitions

Follow up: 1 x 12 repetitions

If you a complete beginner, first use the bar only. Normally an Olympic bar will weight 45 pounds by itself and a standard bar will weight about 20 to 25 pounds. Most commercial gyms will use an Olympic barbell. Most home gyms will use a standard barbell.

After 20 repetitions you may add some weight (5 to 10 pounds) on each side of the bar. I suggest trying to add if you feel comfortable doing so. Start with 12 repetitions and then gradually add more weights as you progress. Keep a journal.

Remember to use clamps at the end of your barbell, for the weight not to slid off.

Best Supplement Reviews 2018 | For Working Out | Body Building | Muscle Repair | Weight Loss | Weight Gain

Are you confused with all the products on the current market and don't know what to take to maximize your results? In this article, we'll help you to understand about different types of supplements out there and also pick some of the top products for you to choose from.

Pre-Workout Supplements 

These products give you the energy to push it to the limit. The right pre-workout supplement can provide your muscles with a strength and power boost, allowing you to get those last, vital reps. It will also give you the training energy and endurance to get the most out of your training session.

Side effects: high doses of niacin (500+mg) may result in itching, flushing, and stomach upset. Pre workout supplements are often used in combination with High-intensity (HIIT) trainings which can increase your blood pressure. If  you have high blood pressure, you should consult your doctor first about taking these.

Creatine Supplements

This is the single best nutritional supplement that you need to get bigger and stronger. Creatine has the ability to turn ADP back into ATP, which is the energy system that the muscles use push weight. The more ATP in the muscle cell, the more reps you can perform. This directly increases the tension on the muscle, which is the key to muscle growth.

Side effects: creatine is a natural substance used in the body to make ATP or energy. Anecdotal side effects include stomach cramps and muscle cramps, nausea, diarrhea, weight gain, kidney stress and dehydration. Actual research, however, refutes these anecdotal claims.

Beta Alanine Supplements

Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that helps build muscle strength and power. When beta-alanine is ingested, it turns into the molecule carnosine, which acts as an acid buffer in the body. It is a good alternative to creatine if you do not want the water weight but still need increased recovery and is used for moderate- to high-intensity cardiovascular exercise performance.

Beta-alanine supplementation can cause paresthesia, a potentially uncomfortable but ultimately harmless tingling of the skin that commonly affects the face but has also been reported in the abdomen, chest, and extremities. Paresthesia typically occurs when too great a dose of beta-alanine is taken acutely.

Amino Acid Supplements

After your workout, you need amino acids in order to repair and rebuild your hard trained muscles. Protein in food is broken down into amino acids, which are used by the body for various purposes, including building the type of protein needed to build and maintain muscle tissue.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) : leucine, isoleucine, and valine are for people with low dietary protein intake as BCAA supplementation can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time.

Anabolic Supplements

Also known as anabolic steroids. Those supplements have testosterone-like effects on the body that can help increase muscle size as well as enhance muscle mass.

Common side effects with anabolic steroids may include: aggression, rage, violence, heart attack and stroke, acne/oily skin, hair loss, liver disease, kidney disease, irritability, depression.

Protein Supplements | Protein Supplements for Women

The three common ones are whey, soy, and casein protein. Whey, a milk protein that has a high level of branched-chain amino acids , is the most commonly used as it digests fast and gets to your muscles rapidly to start building muscle.

For women building lean muscle tissue from weight training and taking a protein supplement are smart ways to promote fat loss. Protein powder is mixed up as a protein shake.

The amount you take should be based on body weight. Aim to take a gram of protein per pound of lean body mass per day. Protein powder in itself isn't bad for your liver and kidneys, but consuming too much of it may cause a strain on these organs. If your body doesn't break down urea, the nitrogenous compound from protein, ask your doctor before consuming.

Supplements For Weight Loss 

The actual secret to lose weight is simple: it's all about your exercise routine, nutrition and supplementation plan.

Essential Supplements for Body Building

  • Whey Protein.
  • Branch Chain Amino Acids.
  • L-Glutamine.
  • Creatine.
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil.
  • Vitamin/Mineral Supplement.

Supplements for Bulking Up  

  • A Mass Gainer
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • ZMACreatineAmino acids
  • Bcaas
  • Maltrodextrin and Dextrose
  • 5-HTP

Closest Supplement to Steroids 2018

There are NO Safe Steroids whether they are legal or not. Good diet, multivitamin, protein, maybe some creatine and a workout plan are enough.

Top 10 Benefits of Olympic Weightlifting Shoes

Ok, so now you have heard of weightlifting shoes (let's call them WLS) and think if you should use them or not? Read our guide here about some of their benefits that may suit your need.


What do weightlifting shoes do?

Unlike regular shoes, WLS, as their names suggest, are made for weightlifting or heavy training. Their design is a bit different and some people just don’t really like the look. On the other hand, there are people that prefer to squat barefoot instead of wearing them. In fact, weightlifting shoes have a lot of benefits more than you can expect.

You can maximize your training results as well as prevent the possibility of injury while lifting weights or heavy objects. In case you are addicted to squatting, WLS can provide the total balance that you need to perform better. Let’s find out more below.

Top 10 Benefits of wearing Olympic Weightlifting Shoes

Here are the reasons why we need to use Olympic weightlifting shoes:
  1. Special heel: 

    They are designed to have raised heels. The elevated heel will help you move or lift more weights by taking advantage of the force that your body produce and turn that forge to the strength that you need all the way from the ground up (which is not possible if you have weak feet or poor balance position) and help you lift those bars and weights upwards. 
  2. Strong base: 

     Shoes with soft soles will just waste the forge that’s you are trying to generate to lift that heavy bar. WLS with their firm sole will stabilize your whole body as well as giving the desirable ankle degree for a lower, deeper squat. 
  3. Trusting stability: 

    These raised heel shoes are more stable than other shoes that are not designed for weightlifting purpose. They hold your feet firmly and help distribute the resistance stability proportionately so that you can pull your strength better.
  4. Snug fit: 

    Aside from raised heel, WLS come with strapping and laces support that make our feet feel they are comfortable in every direction. 
  5. More confidence: 

    Wearing those shoes gives you the feeling that you are protected and supported with better balance to lift more weights, thus turn out greater results. 
  6. Better position: 

     A hard plastic/wooden flat sole, higher heel and snug fit support are the features that your weightlifting shoes will have to align your position and postures the right way. 
  7. Ankle Aid: 

    Your ankle will thank you for the extra aid they get from WLS. That means you place less stress on your ankle and protect them at the same time. 
  8. Range of motion: 

    Not only does your ankle get the support that it needs those shoes also help alter the maximum range of movement that your ankle joint can perform. Moreover, the tarsal straps will create a flexible hip activation for a more effective workout. 
  9. Injury prevention:

      Weightlifting shoes help align your feet, ankle, lumbar spine and pelvis, thus protect your possibility of being injured during your training session. 
  10. Better Squat: 

    You can use them to squat even though there are people who think it is better to squat barefoot. I won’t argue as long as it is up to people choices but I believe those shoes can give you the balance and stability to squat more, with all those benefits that mentioned above.

Cheap/Affordable Weightlifting Shoes in 2018

The latest of model of weightlifting shoes of 2018 which we think most affordable is Adidas Powerlift 3.

For older version you can consider the Warrior - Wei-Rui from MaxBarbell.

Sometimes we are lucky to find good shoes from famous brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok on sale/clearance. You can join discussion on Reddit to find out which sitea are currently having a sale or bookmark this site, we will update for you.

Best Weightlifting Shoes in 2018

The best latest WLS of 2018 we come across is Nike Metcon 3, a good pair of shoes come from a famous brand at a reasonable price. If you have money to spend consider the Reebok Legacy Lifter, which is also the latest release in 2017.

Best Women's Weightlifting Shoes in 2018

  • Nike Metcon 3 Women's Training Shoe
  • ASICS Gel Fit Yui
  • Adidas AdiPower Weight Lifting Shoe
  • Reebok Legacy Lifter 
  • Adidas Powerlift Trainer 2
  • Nike Romaleos 3 

Weightlifting Shoes vs Powerlifting Shoes

The difference lies in the soles. Powerlifting shoes have flat, softer soles. Some people believe that they are less stable than WLS.

Best shoes for both Lifting and CrossFit 2018

  • Nike Romaleos 3 
  • Nike Free 5.0
  • Adidas AdiPower 
  • Adidas Crazy Power TR
  • inov-8 FastLift 370
  • Reebok CrossFit Lifters 2 
  • Reebok CrossFit Nano 5.0 and 7.0
  • VS Athletics

Top Weightlifting Shoes Brands

  1. Adidas
  2. Nike
  3. Reebok
  4. WEI-RUI
  6. Inov8
  7. Asics
  8. Risto
  9. VS Athletic
  10. Otomix


Down to conclusion, if you’re still in doubt whether you should invest in a pair of weightlifting shoes or not, why not give them a try? Weightlifting shoes are not really expensive; you can get a good pair with reasonable price and sometimes you will be lucky enough to buy high quality weightlifting shoes with discount (on Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale period, for example). Considering how they can prevent your risk of injury, I don’t think that they are just a waste of money as long as you treat them with care, those will be with you for a very long time.
