Revisited: Squatting W/ Weightlifting Shoes and "Elevation Masks" - Results of New Studies Appear Initially Surprising

Weight lifting shoes don't make a difference and "elevation masks" (those things that simply impair your ability to breath) work... they increase your cerebral oxygenation - don't rely on the potentially misleading abstracts, alone... read SuppVersity ! Stronger, faster, leaner, ... and obviously more muscular. If you want to achieve all that, you got to invest the effort it takes to trigger the adaptational processes that will get your skinny-fat Western a** into Instagram-ready pre-Olympic shape. But what about the myriad of training gadgets will they take you there any faster? A cursory look at the latest scientific evidence seems to suggest that weight lifting shoes may not be as beneficial and - more surprisingly - elevation masks not as useless as many people believe... a cursory look, that is ;-) Hitting a wall?

Vitamin C ain't yellow, but it's not as black-and-white as it is portrayed on social media, these days. A couple of years ago, the #1 discussions about vitamin C one could have would usually address the following questions: "Does vitamin C prevent/treat the common cold?" and... (I still get this question, by the way) "Is ascorbic acid/manmade vitamin C bad for your health?" Don't worry, neither of these questions is going to be re-addressed in this short C-special (for the latter question, I suggest you re-read my article about 'natural' vs. 'synthetic' vitamins, here .

High Fish Oil Diet ➯ N3-Oxidation ➯ Fat Cell 'Aging', Plus Neuronal Damage | 12+ Studies to Contextualize the Results

Athletes could be at particular risk of 'going rancid' You will probably remember both my previous article about the "rancidity" problem with over-the-counter fish oil products (see "3/3 TOP-Selling US Fish Oils Exceed Maximal Peroxide and Total Oxidation Levels - Levels Roughly 4000% Higher Than in Medical Grade N3 Supplements, Harvard Study Shows" | read more ), as well as my often-phrased general skepticism about the usefulness of high dose (>1-2g/d) fish oil supplements.
