How much Glutamine should I take a day

How much Glutamine you should take is based on body weight, activity, lifestyle stress, overall health and diet. Recommendations on the amount of L Glutamine to take vary between 2 grams daily up to 40 grams daily.  Very high Glutamine intake a day is usually recommended for people with cancer or serious burns victims.  Some bodybuilders take as much as 40g a day but this can cause stomach upsets.  For the majority of people anywhere between 2-15g per day is about the amount recommended across sites on the internet.  It’s best to see how you go with different supplements, start out taking 2 grams a day and then up it bit by bit seeing how you feel, I personally wouldn’t go much above 10g per day.  If you notice any stomach problems cut it back down, listening to your body is the key when taking any supplements.

As well as how much you should be taking you need to know when to take it for best results.  The best times to take Glutamine are pre and post workout or before bed.  Break your intake up into three sittings one pre workout, one post and one before bed.

Isaac's story

Because I am blind, I cannot learn new exercises by watching my trainer nor can he show me what I am doing wrong – he has to either verbalise the technique or demonstrate by physically making adjustments to my body shape.

For this reason, I need to work with a trainer who can effectively explain an exercise and describe the postures and workings of the body that correspond to the proper execution of that exercise. I have found such a trainer in Rob, and as a result, working out with him is both productive and enjoyable.

Through careful instruction and my conscious effort to comprehend and implement what I’m being told, I gain a greater understanding of the mechanics and purpose of an exercise than perhaps I would through visual imitation.

The team's knowledge, creativity and flexibility make training at MyFitness Studio both a worthwhile pleasure and an education.

I decided to invest in some personal training sessions six months before my wedding in July 2011 and have been training with Rob and the team ever since.

As is the case for so many brides (and grooms) to be, I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day. My objective was simply to lose some weight and tone up so I could feel confident and happy with how I would look in our wedding pictures.

At my first session Rob identified key areas for us to work on including my arms, thighs and bottom and how specifically to make all of those areas slimmer and tighter. I originally trained only twice a week and saw huge changes in my body after just a couple of months. My arms were noticeably toned and my bottom smaller and tighter.

The team gave me great nutritional information to ensure my diet supported my training and weight loss goals. By my wedding in July I had not only hit my weight loss target, I had toned up dramatically. I felt in the best shape of my life and as a result I felt confident and happy in my dress. That on-the-day confidence really shows through in our pictures and I’m so thankful to MyFitness Studio for helping me achieve this.

Our Fit for the Occasion sessions were the right mix of fun and hard work and I enjoyed them so much that I couldn’t give up training after the wedding.
