Tip: Does Your Sweat Turn Women On? | T Nation

But then there's this. Men's sweat smells different when they're aroused, and women can unconsciously tell the difference according to another study from The Journal of Neuroscience. The study involved collecting the armpit sweat of men as they watched either erotic movies or non-erotic movies, then having women sniff the sweat while their brains were monitored with MRI. (Science is fun.)

Tip: Shuttle Calories to Muscle, Not Fat | T Nation

Insulin sensitivity largely determines how lean you are and how muscular you are. It improves the way your body partitions energy so that food calories are preferentially shuttled to muscle instead of fat. If insulin sensitivity is poor, you might look and feel squishy, or you might be reasonably lean everywhere except for a layer of overflowing fat around your waist that reminds everyone of the miniature volcano you once made for a school science project.

Tip: Nuts. You're Eating Them Wrong | T Nation

Here's why, plus much healthier ways to buy your nuts and make them taste awesome.

Tip: Two Vegetables That Grow Muscle | T Nation

Glucoraphanin is a chemical found in broccoli, cauliflower, and, in particular, the young sprouts (microgreens) of these two vegetables of the Brassica family. When humans eat and digest these vegetables, the glucoraphanin is converted to a substance named sulforaphane, which has long been known to have anti-cancer and anti-microbial properties.

Bench Press Without a Bench | T Nation

Got a sharp pain deep inside your shoulder? Trying to bench press anyway? It's common among lifters. And they'll keep the area irritated by continuing to bench. It's time to modify your pressing routine. How? By benching without a bench. Here are six floor press variations that'll allow you to go heavy, and more importantly, allow your shoulders to heal.

The Single Biggest Diet Mistake | T Nation

First, we have to look at what most fat-loss diets have in common. Diets make you stop (or greatly reduce) eating what we'll call "obvious crap" – the junk food, the treats, etc. You know, the stuff that everyone knows isn't doing them any good, and the stuff they only seem to stop stuffing down their gullets when they're "on a diet."

The Best Workout for YOUR Body | T Nation

Keep a detailed training log. Record sets, reps, poundage, body weight, waist size, and the like. Also keep track of how you feel before and after the workout, how visible your abs are, how tight your shirt feels, joint pain, sleep quality, and anything it takes to determine how well the program is working.

Tip: The Farmer's Carry Is Essential | T Nation

For long-term orthopedic and functional success, you should be able to pick up a heavy object, stabilize, then walk with it. The inability to do so is a sign your grip is fragile and that you're susceptible to chronic issues in places like the lower back, shoulders, and elbows. So don't neglect these.

10 Things Every Skinny Guy Needs to Know About Getting Big

“You don’t have to spend 2+ hours in the gym every day,” Matthews says. Instead, he recommends getting to the gym on the regular. “You can gain muscle and strength lifting just once or twice per week,” Matthews says. “But if you want to maximize your gains, 5 to 6 days per week is optimal because it allows you to do shorter, more intense workouts and achieve optimal weekly volume for each major muscle group.” That means splitting ‘em up by day, so you’re not overworking or neglecting any: Day 1 could be chest/abs; Day 2, back/calves; Day 3, shoulders/abs; Day 4, legs; and Day 5, upper body with arms emphasis/abs.

Tip: Stop Sabotaging Yourself on Weekends | T Nation

Veggies fill you up, and you can eat a ton without blowing your diet. You'll never need to check into a fat loss clinic because of your broccoli habit. If you're attending a get-together, bring a vegetable tray that everyone hates and eat it all by yourself. After that, go to the protein sources. This at least gives you a fighting chance at not ingesting 10,000 calories at the neighbor's barbeque.

Tip: 4 Reasons to Keep a Food Log | T Nation

Sometimes subtle shifts are all that's necessary to start the fat loss process, or to keep it progressing. Some people will jump to extremes when it's not necessary. Maybe all you need is to cut your carbs down by 10% to spark some fat loss. By tracking, testing, and assessing, you can do that instead of cutting your calories in half and carbs to zero, then suffering all of the negative metabolic and hormonal consequences of those extremes.

Tip: How to Lunge for Big Quads & Glutes | T Nation

The forward lean ensures the hips are pushed back posteriorly and actively engaged throughout the exercise. A good lunge involves solid hip hinge mechanics. An upright torso places greater stress on the knees and low back while minimizing stress to the glutes and upper thighs ­– not what you want.

4 Ways to Avoid Injury

It is an absolute must to have great form when you’re lifting heavy and to use a full range of motion. Try to remember that building strength is a marathon and not a sprint. Learn to love the journey and the process of getting stronger. Use great form and push yourself until your form breaks down (which represents your safety limit), then stop. Using this method will keep you coming back to the gym healthy and will help you get stronger week after week.

7 Best Barbell Moves for Building a Big Back

Grab a barbell and either place it into a landmine station (if available) or position it firmly into a corner. Begin adding the desired number of plates to the outward facing side of the barbell. Stand over the middle of the bar slightly bending the knees and maintaining a neutral spine (the starting position may be similar to the setup for a deadlift). Preferably grab a seated row attachment and place it underneath the bar against the side with the plates. If one is not available you can simply grab the bar itself. Maintain a tight core, neutral spine, and begin rowing the bar upwards to the middle portion of your abdomen. Make sure to retract the scapula prior to beginning the movement and focus on engaging the lats eliminating bicep activation.

If you can't lock out your elbows on the bench press, try setting the safety rails in a power rack at about your sticking point on the lift. Put roughly 100 pounds more than your one-rep maximum weight on the bar and then try to press it — naturally, you won't be able to move the bar but try hard anyway for six to 10 seconds. Do four to six reps, resting a few seconds in between, and then lighten the load to the weight you usually have trouble locking out. Your central nervous system should now be sufficiently fired up for you to lift it.

The top 5 fantasy football busts for week 17

It's been a tough season already for Dalton and the Bengals and in Week 17 he’s not expected to have A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert in the lineup. With Giovani Bernard already out and Jeremy Hill slowing down at the end of the season, the pressure is going to be on Dalton even more for this game against the Ravens. Dalton had 268 yards and a touchdown against a stingy Texans defense last week and now he’ll face off against one of the best in the league in the Ravens. Stay away from Dalton this week.

The 10 Worst Things You’re Doing for Your Muscles

But sometimes our habits in and out of the gym unknowingly can sabotage our hard work—or at least make us less efficient in producing the results we’re striving so hard to achieve. Here are the 10 worst things you’re doing for your muscles and what you can do instead.

Tip: Do Cardio Separate From Lifting | T Nation

You'll build more muscle. Here are a few ways to do it, and some ideas to try if that's just not possible for you.


Aim to get 1 to 3 grams of EPA and DHA daily. Quality is very important when it comes to fish oil because reports show that many fish oil brands are contaminated, rancid, or don’t meet label claims. To test for rancidity, take a capsule and chew it up when you first open the bottle. Safe fish oil should have a mild taste, but rancid fish oil will taste acidic.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 - There are so many details to manage this time of year that it's tempting to just surrender control and let someone else deal with all the facts and figures. The last thing you want to do is crunch numbers now, but you feel the tense pull between what you know must be done, and where your heart is calling you to go. Fortunately, the Moon's shift from analytical Virgo to affable Libra makes it easier to see things from a more peaceful perspective. Honest hearts produce honest actions.

Weider Principle #19: Quality

This Weider principle has both the best and worst name. It’s the best because everyone loves quality. The principle’s moniker sells it better than any advertising slogan could. But it’s the worst because “quality” could just as easily apply to any other Weider principle. The name tells you nothing about shorter rest periods between sets. Calling it the Weider reduced-rest principle would be much more appropriate, but once you get the quality seal, it’s not coming of. This month, we’ll explain the advantages and disadvantages of the Weider quality principle and show you how to best use abbreviated rests to spur muscle growth.

Get Stubborn Muscles to Grow

Different muscles have different muscle fiber ratios, and hitting different rep ranges allows you to target them all far more efficiently. My Y3T training system is tailor-made for this and works with its three-week rotation in which you move between low, moderate, and high reps in a cyclical format. Also, a key benefit of higher rep ranges is that you are forcing more blood into the area, which helps stretch out the fascia that surrounds the muscles.

Bodybuilding Day: High Volume Quad Crushing

After coming off my best meet performance of my career, I am now taking some time to focus on competing in bodybuilding over the spring of 2017. My nutrition coaching is through Cliff Wilson, and I have not yet determined the shows I'm competing in at this time.

An AB-solute Must!

When I think of great abdominal development, one of the first men to come to mind is my friend Frank Zane. He had such a tiny waist and a midsection that was so well balanced — from serratus to obliques to intercostals to rectus abdominis — that he looked like the living, breathing incarnation of Michelangelo’s David. I remember it seemed like I saw Frank on a Roman chair every workout, both at the beginning and at the end. He would go for 500 reps each workout. I used to chide him about all that time he spent training his abs, but I couldn’t deny that it did the trick.

10 ways to look better instantly

A lot can be said for a solid sock in a bold color. Once it gets busy with a lot of stripes, designs or polka dots, it can get distracting and take you from modern to messy. If you're not sure, I suggest sticking to a classic, simple sock choice in a bold color. Personally, I have made my go-to sock: a nice cherry red. I put it with everything and just say it matches. Because it's a primary color, it tends to be bold without contrasting from most outfits. Don't like red? That's fine. Find something you like and try it out. If it doesn't work, try something else. Luckily socks tend to be an inexpensive way to have fun with an outfit. An easy way to mix and match is to go with UniQlo solid socks priced at an easy to obtain four for $12.90.

How to eat to get lean

“As you get leaner your brain will do two things to avoid starvation: It will make you hungrier since it thinks you are losing potentially beneficial fat and wants to restore it, and it will slow down your metabolism to try to slow or stop further fat loss,” St. Pierre explains. These systems were beneficial for the hundreds of thousands of years that we needed fat to stay alive, but not so much in today’s world. If you follow the rest of our plan, hopefully you won’t have to come face-to-face with the ravenous monster too often. But when you do, just remember it’s mostly a psychological game.

Rob's Road to Hercules: Contest Prep

lol thanks man. Originally back in October I just wanted to pull back and lose a few pounds to start my prep around 160, so I did and then saw I could maintain it pretty easily, so why not start in an even better spot and keep going. Ultimately and most importantly, I want to leave no doubt, no room for error, that I will reach the level of conditioning needed to bring my best. Knowing how much I stressed my body last year in the last 8 weeks of prep and how I still had to lose a few more pounds, that means this year tapering cardio out before the show, letting my legs relax and not be so inflamed, and arriving at my conditioning early as possible. Last year was a stressful prep, I felt like My Cousin Vinny, spinning my wheels in the mud. So, before the prep starts now I really wanted to be sure I knew how to lose a pound a week without stressing too much, and figured it out with the method I'm using now. I'm super motivated to have found a method that works well consistently for me and that I feel good executing.
