Chromium is an incredible trace mineral which has the ability to offer a great deal of support to all bodybuilders and athletes alike. However, as with a lot of supplements which aren’t what you would call ‘mainstream’ you don’t always know why you are taking them and as a result this can lead to you making mistakes with your supplementation plan. To add to this it is always great to know exactly what you’re putting into yourself and why, as they say ‘knowledge is power’ and this is particularly the case when it comes to bodybuilding. This article is going to outline all of the benefits of supplanting Chromium and why you should do this!

As stated before, Chromium is a trace mineral which has been proven to be very important within a diet after numerous studies. However in regards to bodybuilding and athletics in general, why is Chromium so important to you?

The thing which Chromium is best known for in terms of supporting gains as a bodybuilder is its effects on Insulin. Chromium supports the production of Insulin within the body, which is a very anabolic hormone indeed which also governs your blood sugar levels. As a result, by increasing the effectiveness of your Insulin you can be sure that your blood sugar levels are going to remain stable. This in turn leads to more efficient fat burning due to the fact that you shouldn’t experience as many Insulin spikes during the day which leads to fat being stored, opposed to being used as an energy source. As you know, Insulin is also very anabolic. With this being said if you’re able to brace the active qualities of Insulin it stands to reason that your anabolic activity will also be increased and, in turn you will enjoy more rapid muscle growth and recovery.

Another huge benefit of supplementing on Chromium is that due to its effect on Insulin your glucose uptake is increased and your blood circulation is also improved. This then means that your energy levels will become elevated as a result and so will your endurance. Increased energy levels and endurance levels equates to intense training, combined with the increased anabolism means you will see you new rates of growth for sure!

There are some great reasons as to why you should be supplementing on Chromium, don’t wait any longer, go and start reaping the rewards now!

I was always the small kid since I can remember and it was always the same when I started football when I was just 8 years old. This didnt change until I was 16, where for all of my sporting life until that point I hadn't had the luxury of being strong on the field or powerful. I remember I always wanted to have a '6 pack' so I would do around 2,000 sit ups a night (no that is not a typo) but apart from being seriously fit I didn't get many gains in the form of aesthetics. So in the summer of 2006 when I was 16 I bought a 50kg weight set from Argos where I trained my heart out in my bedroom 3 times a week completing a full body circuit and yes, I did grow! As soon I lifted my first weight my arms always seemed to grow well and my chest didn't and that is the same today! Then at the start of 2007 I was fortunate enough to meet for the first time I guy some of you may of heard of, Kris Gethin. It is by no coincidence we share the same sir name, he is my bigger cousin (older as well :)). Kris took me under his wing, gave me a training programme and a diet and said follow this, so I did. Kris probably got 10-20 emails a DAY asking questions because I wanted to learn and wanted to know everything right away! Over the years since then Kris always guided me and put me in touch with Neil Hill who I am blessed enough to call a very close friend today. Neil now guides me with my nutrition and training and that basically explains my background to date. In the last year I have also written masses of articles for various companies and magazines in the industry and I am also the editor in chief of my own magazine which came out January of 2011, Elite Physique Magazine! My future aspirations as an athlete is to achieve a very aesthetic 'beach body', my ideal would be a mini version of Arnie, that classic shape is unbeatable in my opinion. As an individual I strive to always better myself and my knowledge and to help others who are starting out like I was 5 years ago! Above all else, it is an absolutely huge honour to be the online editor of MonsterSupplements.com!
