Is it ok to use supplements such as fat burners to help increase results?

6 Answers | Asked by Gus Aguirre on Aug 16, 2011

Answered by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Aug 17, 2011

Gus, I wouldn't want to suggest that you take any fat burning supplement to help you reach your goals. I do know that if you continue resistance training, a favorable change will be that you will gain more muscle tissue which will in turn serve to be a natural resting metabolic rate booster. H...

8 Answers | Asked by Jenny Gabriel on Aug 17, 2011

Answered by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Aug 17, 2011

What do you think about using Anabolic Steroids in non-competition circumstances for image results?

10 Answers | Asked by Eddie Lester on Aug 17, 2011

Answered by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Aug 17, 2011

I pity the individual who is more concerned about aesthetics than about their health. There are so many adverse effects related to the use of anabolic steroids. I've attached the link to the ACSM position stand on the use of anabolic steroids. http://journals.lww.com/acsm-msse/Citation/1987/1...

6 Answers | Asked by Lisa Lorraine Taylor on Aug 16, 2011

Answered by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Aug 16, 2011

I think that is pretty subjective as far as what one's expectations were. I wanted to learn more about ACE's IFT model. I enjoyed that very much. I also enjoyed participating in Fraser Quelch's sessions. Batuka was great fun. It was a great convention!

9 Answers | Asked by Kelly Howe on Aug 16, 2011

Answered by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Aug 16, 2011

I like your question very much Kelli. I think one of the reasons that adults just don't let go and have fun has alot to do with "keeping up appearances." I think it is important to find out what brings the kid out in an adult and include that as part of your fitness programming. I feel like ...
