My Answer: 


  The only time that I have to stop reading a book is when I have to read another title for review purposes. I'm almost at the midpoint of Outlander when I had to stop reading it because I have too many titles I need to review for this blog. I have my book marker in place, so I can start reading it again, one day.

PULSS: Premium Nitric Oxide Load Review





You might recall me reviewing a creatine supplement this week; well, another great supplement to use for weight lifting is nitric oxide. After an intense workout, your body can become fatigue, which will make the recovery time for your muscles take longer than what you want it to be.

A few weeks ago, I was sent a 90 tablet bottle of PULSS: Premium Nitric Oxide Load, which features an unique blend of anti-catabolic and high-quality vasodilative agents. It was created to help enhance vascularity, denser muscular pumps and speed up your recovery time.

The ingredients include:

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (A-AKG) - increases nitric oxide production, which will expand blood vessels. It's also known to speed up recovery time.

Glutamine Alpha-ketoglutarate (GAK) - gives your body a boost of glutamin, precursors alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) and taurine, which will help your body replenish and restore key amino acids after a workout.

Arginine Ketoisocaproate (A-KIC) - will help muscle breakdown during a workout. It also aids in the removal of ammonia during a workout.

Private Gym Review



For males, as we get older our pelvic muscles become weaker, which can cause multiple problems, such as premature ejaculations and rigid erections. The Journal of Urology stated that by age 40, more than 50% of men experience some kind of erectile dysfunction and the percentage increases 16% as males near the 60 year mark. Just like your other muscles, the pelvic muscle can be trained through exercises and resistance training, which over time will help strengthen your pelvic so you can conquer your erectile dysfunctions.

While there are many Kegel Exercisers on the market for women, there haven't been a stystem created for men until now thanks to the Private Gym, the first FDA registered pelvic exercise program. Private Gym was founded by David Mandell and was developed in the conjunction with Dr. Andrew Siegel, a renowned urologist, surgeon, professor and author of Male Pelvic Fitness: Optimizing Sexual and Urinary Health.

With the Private Gym, you can now boost your sexual performance in less than two minutes a day without the use of pills, which can have many unwanted side-effects. The system is available in two different versions: a Basic Training Program (Retail: $59.99) or the Complete Training Program (Retail: $99.99).


I was sent the Complete Training Program about two months ago to test out for this review. The kit features:

Spring Reads: Secret Brother by V.C. Andrews


Secret Brother
The Dollanganger Family Series
by V.C. Andrews
Publisher: Pocket Books
Pub. Date: May 26th, 2015
ISBN: 978-1476792408
Pages: 384
Buy Link: Amazon

Review:

In 1979, the Gothic novel Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews was published, causing a slue of backlash from libraries, schools and parents. Despite the taboo incest theme, the story about a four siblings being locked in a bedroom & attic by their mother and grandmother became a worldwide sensation. Three sequels (Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns & Seeds of Yesterday) were later published. Sadly, V.C. Andrews passed away before she could finished the prequel novel Garden of Shadows, but the publishers and Andrews' family picked Andrew Neiderman to ghostwrite the novel, as well as every V.C. Andrews title since then.

Fans thought the series had ended with Garden of Shadows until the semi-sequel Christopher's Diary: Secrets of Foxworth was released last fall and quickly followed by Christopher's Diary: Echoes of Dollanganger, in which a long-distant cousin stumbles upon the diary of Christopher Dollanganger.

Arriving on in bookstores next week is the direct sequel to Flowers in the Attic (or a side-prequel to the Christopher's Diary duo). The novel begins in late October 1960 and centers on sixteen-year-old Clara Sue Sanders, whom, along with her little brother, Willie, has been living with their Grandpa Arnold every since their parents died in a tragic accident. One afternoon, Clara Sue is startled by the commotion outside - a drunk driver had hit her brother and his nanny, Myra. While the paramedics did everything they could, Willie was gone before the ambulance arrived at the hospital.

Grief-stricken, Clara Sue must stay in the waiting room by her grandfather's side while the doctors work on Myra. This is when they learn that young boy had been dropped off at the and left at the hosptial by a stranger. The boy is undernourished and had been poisoned with arsenic. (Sounds familiar, doesn't it?)

Before funeral plans for Willie are even made, Grandpa Arnold is determined to find out whom this little boy is. Due to the arsenic, the boy has neurological damage as well as the loss of motor skills; leaving him unable to communicate and walk. Grandpa Arnold hires a detective to find out who dropped the the boy off, but he finds nothing.

Ozeri Electric Wine Opener Review



While I've never been much a drinker in the past or considered myself to be a wine enthusiast, I do occasionally buy a bottle of wine. Normally, this is on a special occasion, like a holiday, but once in awhile I do go down the liquor aisle at my local Walmart and pick out a sweet bottle of wine.

While I do have an old-fashioned cork screw to open wine bottles, I've always been interested in having an electric one, so you can imagined that I was excited to try out a complimentary Ozeri Electric Wine Opener in exchange for my honest thoughts. 

This is a type of electric wine opener that are seen in restaurants. The Ozeri Electric Wine Opener is the 2nd generation with a new and improved battery that can open up to 40 bottles of wine in one single charge! 

Once you remove the wine opener from the box, you need to charge it for 8 hours to get it full charged before you can use it for the first time. It comes with a foil cutter, so you just use it to cut and remove the seal from the wine bottle. While holding the bottle with one hand, use your other hand to place the bottom of the opener on top of the cork. Press the push-down button to remove the cork. Then press the push-up button to release the cork and pour yourself a glass of wine. As an added bonus, the opener comes with a pourer/stopper.


CRUSCH: Ultimate Tri-Phase Creatine Review



If you have ever been down the dietary supplement section in Walmart, then you've probably seen big containers of creatine (probably flavored) next to the whey protein. You might believe that you need to be a bodybuilder to use creatine, but the truth is that anybody looking to lose weight and gain muscle can benefit from taking it.

Several weeks ago, I received a 90 tablet bottle of CRUSCH: Ultimate Tri-Phase Creatine, which features 5,000 mg of creatine per serving (3 tablets). Typically, creatine comes in a fruit punch mix or has to be added to some sort of juice as sugar activate it. These tablets can be taken anywhere, but you still need to take it with juice or a high carbohydrate beverage.

What exactly is creatine?
