Vitamin C is something that rarely leaves my personal supplement regime. Although a basic supplement it has many useful properties, including but not limited to having antioxidant effects, aiding in immune health, and managing cortisol. Cheap and effective, Vitamin C can be purchased almost anywhere from specialist health stores to the supermarket. Recommended usage per day ranges from 500 milligrams to several grams, and what dosage is used will depend on a variety of individual factors.

Welcome to the thirteenth edition of my Newsletter! It's been a year since I published the first edition of my online monthly newsletter and it has been a journey for sure. As my life has changed, growing with and through each experience, I have evolved my newsletter, earlier editions concentrating on specific fitness/body goals, the last half-year targeted at the general population and topics that I feel more people relate to.
This month in the 'Training' section, I have given a "Workout Of The Year" from one of the many I have done over the past year.
In this month's 'Nutrition' section, I have listed some of the health benefits of having "An Apple A Day".
If there is something that you would like to see in this newsletter, please feel free to contact me to share your thoughts and ideas, and I will be happy to include them in future editions.

However, I chose this "type" of session (as opposed to a Full-Body annihilation session), because by the end of the week I have done each body-part worked here THREE times already, making it challenging, especially if my shoulders and biceps' tendons and wrists are in a lot of pain. Only a 45-minute weights' session, with 300 skipping revolutions as a "warm-up" just prior and 20 minutes of post-weights cardio immediately afterwards, this was the FIRST training session I did on May 19, 2012.
