  • Curtis Harwell Discusses Supplements On His Most Needed List

    in Fitness

    To be the best you must take every advantage you can, and nowhere does this precept hold truer then in the uncompromisingly tough sport of bodybuilding. As each year progresses, it can become harder to gain the competitive edge.


    Age, an adjustment and acclimation to training that causes slower progress and the general complexity of life with its many demands and issues can all conspire to thwart our training efforts.


    While training intensity can be accomplished trough a targeted training program and an ability to adequately stimulate our muscles is something the motivated and determined bodybuilder often has no problem doing, muscle recovery is another issue. It is especially important at a time of the year when social demands and incorrect eating combine to stifle our progress.


    This is why it is particularly important to fill any nutritional gaps with quality supplementation, a practice that can be done all year round for maximal results in muscle size and strength.

    Do I Need to Take Dietary Supplements?

    in Fitness

    Supplements for losing fat or building muscle are rapidly becoming popular. Claims that “fat-burning” supplements will decrease body fat by increasing either mobilization or oxidation of free fatty acids (FFAs) are faulty at best. Untrained individuals have a greater ability to mobilize FFAs than they do to oxidize them. Therefore, supplements that increase FFA mobilization are not of any value for untrained people. For supplements to directly enhance FFA oxidation, the insulin response to the carbohydrates in those supplements would need to be eliminated (since insulin inhibits fat oxidation), and this is unlikely to happen (Coyle 1995). Exercise alone increases the muscles’ capacity to oxidize FFAs.


    For those who eat a balanced diet, there is no evidence that muscle-building supplements, including protein powders and amino acids, build muscle mass (Clarkson 1998; Eichner et al. 1999). The few supplements whose muscle-building potential is supported by research (e.g., creatine) are effective mostly in elite athletes who have undergone many years of training (Eichner et al. 1999).

    The story behind becoming a title sponsor of the Vancouver Canucks...

    Doug
    One year ago. Went down and talked, ended up sponsoring the playoffs last year.

    _ what’s that been like and would you consider it a success so far?

    Doug

    _ ROI right away. Goals, build business, and raise awareness and raise money for charity. Rebuilt TEAM1040’s website, and bringing lots of other opportunities.

    Associated with a top brand

    Doug
    Big companies want to do business with other big companies. You’ll never get fired for hiring IBM. Best Buy Rogers, Telus, BCAA Hong Kong Bank, Royal Bank also in the building.

    6 games that are sponsored. Game sponsored by us. Gifts to everyone attending. Suite for clients and staff.

    Comment on having a holistic marketing approach. Still important to be engaging customers in a lot of different ways isn’t it, both online and offline.

    Doug
    Multiplier effect – use to leverage with direct mail, with print ad, need to see your message 7 to 10 times.
    Integrated marketing approach makes sense. Makes more sense today
    Be consistent with message and look
    Reason for consistent look?
    Bombarded with information. Needs to match so you don’t confuse your customer.
    Does your e-mail signature match your company? Does it have a logo? A link to your website?

    The importance of having posture in a sales situation.
    Doug
    Yes. Is intentional. Ask three questions: What’s the worst thing that could happen? Is it likely to happen? Can I live with it?
    Set your posture when you go to a client. Mutual respect.
    Going into a presentation, I say – I’m turning my phone off. Will only answer if it’s wife or kids. You have my undivided attention. Set your posture people will respect you.
    Posture changes as you grow. If I was going to work with you I would ask: Who are your best clients? Who is the most fun to work with? Who pays their bills on time? Work with them and get rid of the rest.
