Muscle Sport Magazine


By Leigh Penman

Certainly one of the most exciting nutritional supplement companies to emerge in recent times is Species Nutrition. Founded by Dave Palumbo and Colette Nelson, this innovative enterprise has released some of the most carefully researched and scientifically advanced products currently available.

You will not find these products ‘hyped to the hilt’, nor will you find them advertised with diagrams that belong in a science fiction book. What you will find is state of the art nutrition combined with scientifically researched information. The result is a line of supplements, which deliver real life results rather than a ‘nice legs, shame about the face’ product.


Species not only hold all the cards when it comes to essential fatty acid supplements, fat-burners/energy enhancers, protein powders, joint protectors, carbohydrate and fiber supplements but the deck they have is also stacked with future promise.

For the year ahead they have many more exciting additions to their supplement line including:

• Macadamia Nut Oil
• Protein Pudding
• Peanut Butter Pudding
• Ketolyze – Protein Shake
• Aqualyze – Diuretic

You can find out more about the Species range of supplements, their clothing line and sign up for their monthly newsletter by going to or simply tap the Species banner on our links page.

Leigh Penman, in addition to be a staff writer at MuscleSport Mag, has been writing for bodybuilding magazines, websites and nutritional supplement companies since 1985. Whilst residing in the UK, she earned the reputation of being one of the top female writers in bodybuilding-related media. Her credits included being a contributing editor on all the magazines in production as well as filling the shoes of Ladies Editor and Showbiz Editor on two publications (the later being on Arnold’s sanctioned magazine, ‘Bodypower’). During this time she also competed successfully on four occasions (placing in the top four in all contests).

Relocating to New York in the late 1990s she focused her writing attention to crystal healing techniques and metaphysics – however, she still maintained a five day workout schedule during this time and gained her personal training certificate.

Having also studied pharmacology in relation to sports performance, her writing began taking her in that direction until the present day which sees her embarking on a return to the magazine world, as well as extending her web-related work in the bodybuilding and fitness field.

Leigh has been working out for close to thirty years so she is clearly a writer who ‘walks her talk.’
