Make It Your Best

Like most active adults, you probably have new physique or fitness goals in mind for the year ahead. Whether you've set your sights on attaining a better look, greater strength, improved on-field performance or higher endurance capacity, we hope this compilation of blog posts from optimumnutrition.com and ABBperformance.com provides insight and inspiration to help you push past plateaus and sticking points.

Each week, the ON and ABB teams review research papers published in a variety of scientific journals. We select studies we think will be of interest to our readers and post the findings in short, concise blogs you can easily access from the home page of either site. While the information presented isn't comprehensive or conclusive, we hope the findings get you thinking about potential strategies you can apply to your diet and/or training to take performance to a higher level.

For your convenience, we've segmented this 'Best of 2012' selection into goal-specific categories. Of course, the suggestions in each section are bound to have broader applications, so don't limit yourself or your potential by focusing on a single category. Just as strength athletes can benefit from cardio exercise and distance runners can get a step on the competition with weight training, experimenting with a diverse range of nutrition and training strategies can help you achieve your full potential.
