The ProSource Interview With Bodybuilding
Legend and Business Icon Rich Gaspari


Watching Rich Gaspari bound up onto the stage at his Muscle Beach Hall of Fame induction recently--the physique of a serious bodybuilder hardly concealed by a conservative short-sleeved polo and slacks--it's easy to forget that it has been almost thirty years since he first leaped into national prominence at the 1985 IFBB Night of Champions and 1985 Mr. Olympia. In many ways, Gaspari is the champion who never left; he has been both an ambassador and innovative force for the sport ever since his retirement in 1996.

So swift and startling was Gaspari's ascent to the peak of the profession (he was 22 years old when he placed second in his debut at the Night of Champions, 23 when his st...

Using Nutrient Timing To Fuel Your Training Goals

For many people, nutrient timing is popular because it puts you in the driver's seat for controlling all things good and bad with your diet.  For researchers, nutritionists and dietitians, nutrient timing is a critical nutritional element that plugs in key nutrients at times when it's needed most.  Although it appears that resistance training athletes utilize timing more often than endurance athletes, both types of athletes should use timing to fuel their bodies and facilitate recovery.  A number of nutrients could potentially employ timing, but no nutrient continues to receive more lip service than a high quality whey protein isolate (WPI).

As Prices Soar at Retailers Nationwide, NytroWhey Remains Your #1 Protein Value

As Prices Soar at Retailers Nationwide, NytroWhey Remains Your #1 Protein Value

Hard times are getting harder. Budgets are tighter. And now, recession-weary athletes are experiencing Protein Sticker Shock.

Customers who visit some of ProSource.net's bigger retail competitors are reporting jaw-dropping price increases on powdered proteins, particularly products from high-profile manufacturers with high overhead and ancillary costs.

Here at ProSource, we know the market pressures our competitors are facing. Consumers are spending less in an effort to extract maximum bodybuilding value from every dollar spent. At the same time, all kinds of food prices are rising, and as is often the case, protein production has proved particularly vulnerable to market conditions consisting of increased grain costs, decreased supply, and increased overseas demand for protein.

It's a perfect storm of adverse retailing conditions that is bankrupting lesser manufacture...

Boost growth and recovery with the exclusive NytroWhey Ultra Elite Mass Workout Program

Boost growth and recovery with the exclusive NytroWhey Ultra Elite Mass Workout Program

For bodybuilders, catabolism is the ultimate enemy. This is the metabolic state in which the body is mercilessly breaking down complex tissue (like muscle) into simpler forms, often in a desperate quest for energy. In other words, when you're catabolic, the body is ripping apart your hard-earned muscle tissue. That's definitely not good.

Instead, your ever-present goal is anabolism, the opposite metabolic action where the body is hard at work assembling proteins into complex muscular formations, increasing the retention of protein in muscle and causing hypertrophy (a fancy word for growth).

To create an anabolic st...

Giant Comeback
Pablo Sandoval's New Physique Spurs Hope
for a World Series Repeat in San Francisco


The dog days of August are here, the Giants are at the top of the National League West, and all is well in the world of Pablo Sandoval. The slugging third baseman has been striking fear into the hearts of National League pitchers all season long. Well established in the clean-up slot in the Giants' potent lineup, Sandoval was hitting .304 as the month began, having just come to the end of a 22-game hitting streak. Sandoval has also been showing a new cat-like swiftness in the field as well, with several highlight-reel grabs already to his credit this year. Such is the respect afforded to Sandoval that he earned a trip to the All-Star Game this year despite missing several weeks with a broken hand. And now, the Giants have gone out an...

Superstar Pro Wrestler Kurt Angle is in Peak Form
As He Considers His Options for 2011 and Beyond


When it comes to tallying professional wrestling achievements, few stars past or present can tick off an incredible list like that attributed to Kurt Angle. Fourteen-time world champion in the biggest promotions in wrestling, including the WWE, WCW and now TNA. One of only two pro wrestlers to have held every currently available male championship in the WWE. The second wrestler to ever win TNA's Triple Crown and the first to hold all of TNA's championships simultaneously. In 2010, the Wrestling Observer newsletter named him the " Wrestler of the Decade of the 2000s," for obvious reasons.

And, oh yeah, he also has an Olympic Gold Medal for winning the heavyweight freestyle competition at the 1996 Games in Atlanta, ...

The Beast Unleashed

The Beast Unleashed
Marine Corps Sergeant David Douglas
Takes Aim at the Power Lifting Elite


You'd never know it today, but the man they call The Beast was once turned away by his high school football team because he was too small to play any position on the field. He can laugh about it now, but that rejection lit a fire within Marine Corps Sergeant David L. Douglas that burns brightly to this day. He is, to put it simply, not a man who's willing to take "no" for an answer, especially in regard to any issue involving competition, performance, and his physique goals.

Now 6 feet tall and 274 pounds of sheer shock-and-awe brawn, Sergeant Douglas aspires to be one of the top power lifters in the world. His amazing accomplishments to this point--he has already lifted more than 600 lbs in bench and deadlift in compet...

The Arizona Fall League - Major League Baseball's Crystal Ball

The Arizona Fall League - Major League Baseball's Crystal Ball
"The Best of the Best."

These are the words baseball insiders use to describe the competition at the Arizona Fall League. An elite baseball league that plays its season each October in the desert sun of Phoenix, the Fall League invites only prime, just-on-the-cusp prospects to play. Its alumni bears resemblance to a latterday All-Time All-Star squad, many of its storied participants honored with plaques gracing the walls in Cooperstown.

Each year a new cluster of stars break into the bigs and with increasing regularity these phenoms previously wore a Fall League uniform. Albert Pujols, Justin Morneau, Ryan Howard, Derek Jeter, <...
