Episode 3: Will The Travel Ban Destroy Hadi Choopan's Career? | The Breakdown

Breaking down the upcoming Arnold Classic 2018 lineup & how the travel ban can affect Hadi Choopan and other promising bodybuilders. Believe it or not but we are not very far away from the Arnold Classic 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. One of the biggest bodybuilding events of the year, 2018 looks to be perhaps the best lineup in quite some time. You can feel the excitement in the air - and it's definitely sparking between our hosts on The Breakdown. With special guest Stanimal De Longeaux, Shawn Ray and Tifanny Urrea break down the Arnold Classic 2018 line up and what we can expect from the big competition. One big talking point regarding the Arnold Classic is also Hadi Choopan - an Iranian bodybuilder who almost beat Flex Lewis (and many people believe DID beat Flex Lewis). Choopan has a major uphill battle due to President Donald Trump's continuing efforts with the travel ban. With immigration and visas becoming harder to get (especially for those in Iran), Hadi Choopan has found himself unable to compete in some truly big competitions. And if Hadi can't compete against the best of the best.

The Perfect Biceps Curl | T Nation

To make sure there's always resistance (torque) that your biceps has to work against, the line of force from the bar must always remain anterior to your elbow. Once the line of force either lines up with the elbow joint or passes posteriorly to it, the moment arm relative to the biceps is gone and all resistance and mechanical tension is lost. Not so good for the gains. The biceps curl is really all about keeping the line of force anterior to the elbow to preserve mechanical tension.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, January 13, 2018

Saturday, January 13, 2018 - People may be amused but rarely shocked when you do something that they would never dream of doing. Your brute honesty and bald antics are expected, yet you can go too far in your drive for authenticity today. Others might not realize that your actions represent your exploration of new ideas and not a firm conviction. Someone may try on different styles to see which clothes make the best appearance. You are putting on a variety of personalities now, so you can decide which one serves you the best. Author Lisa Mangum wrote, “Sometimes wearing a mask is the best way to show our true selves.”

Tip: A Murderous Barbell Clean Complex | T Nation

Then progress to 3-4 hackey pulls. Begin with an RDL position and the bar just below knee-level. Accelerate the bar as it passes the knees, aggressively extending the hips forward, in effect "popping" the bar off the thighs. This movement teaches you to reach full-hip extension before breaking at the elbows during the pull. This also helps you "feel" your glutes working.

A person’s biceps shape isn’t necessarily the same for both arms. If you check out photos of Arnold in his prime, for example, you’ll see that one of his biceps had a greater peak than the other. No training could change that for him, just as it can’t change the shape of any of your muscles.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's workouts for every body part:


Flabby jowls and batwings for triceps not only make you look more feminine on the outside, but carrying that extra body fat makes you more ladylike on the inside, too. Since body fat is responsible for aromatizing testosterone into estrogen, the more fat you have on you, the more estrogen will be circulating in your body. Danish endocrinologists at Aarhus University recently tracked several changes in 43 men who underwent a 14-week diet and exercise program. As the pounds came off, and body mass index improved, estrogen levels dropped and testosterone started to climb. Additionally, sperm health and sperm quantity improved dramatically. By the end of the experiment, the subjects were not only leaner and more fertile. IM

You don't have to bench to build a big chest:

21 Y/O 5 and a Half Years Training

it is a brotip. and it’s not backed by science. You’ve provided exactly 2 people, including yourself, who make the claim. That does not equate to ‘it works’. It’s actually EXACTLY how a brotip is defined. 2 bros did a thing and decided it works. Do you have any evidence of Artemus Dolgin ever having a large waist? Or that the reason it is small is the belt? This is a great example of the logical fallacy of mistaking correlation with causation. Have you considered the fact that the lifters who are most notorious for wearing very tight belts in all of their training are powerlifters? Shouldn’t we see a lot of powerlifters with very small waists if your claim is true?


“Boulder shoulders” is a popular phrase in the fitness industry, today more than ever. Shoulders seem to be having a pop fitness renaissance. In the the ’80s, mainstream fitness culture was all about a big chest. The ’90s was the decade of the guns. The ’00s were obsessed with abs. (Abs never go out of style, but back then fitness bros thought you could be skinny and weak as long as you had abs.) Shoulders are taking their turn in the spotlight, and for good reason: Nothing shows off the shape of a physique like a broad set of shoulders that taper into a narrow waist. It creates a primal sense of attraction from both sexes. When humans see an optimal shoulder-to-waist ratio, the brain (and other parts) spontaneously starts getting excited.


Caffeine has typically been given credit for the way coffee smashes a case of the munchies, but new research shows that decaffeinated coffee might be an even better ally when you’re cutting calories. In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, scientists examined the effects of coffee, decaf coffee, and caffeinated water on perceived hunger and hormones related to satiety. Of the three beverages, decaf coffee proved to be the most effective in blunting hunger and promoting levels of peptide YY, a hormone in the gut that signals the brain to regulate appetite. Caffeinated coffee was not as effective as decaf but performed significantly better than the caffeinated water, which had almost zero effect on hunger. Scientists concluded that substances in the coffee other than caffeine are resposible for acutely decreasing hunger. If you like coffee while dieting, brew up a pot of decaf and save the caffeine for your pre-workout. Your central nervous system will thank you.

A Strongman's Guide to Shoulder Health | T Nation

The shoulder is an incredibly mobile and complex joint that needs to work with your scapula and thoracic spine (upper back). For the shoulder to function properly you must have an adequate amount of thoracic mobility. To address your mobility restrictions, begin every workout doing some soft tissue work. It'll help loosen restrictive connective tissue and increase blood flow to the areas targeted. Using a foam roller is great for general areas such as the pecs, lats, triceps and thoracic spine.

But then there's that affordability thing again. Organic just plain costs more. There does, however, thanks to researchers at the University of Massachusetts, appear to be a way you can make your less expensive, non-organic produce almost as healthy for you as the organic variety. All it involves is a little water, some baking soda, and a few minutes' spare time.

How to Lose Weight: Why Sleep Can Make You Fat

However when they cut back on sleep, the amount of fat lost was cut in half—even though they were on the same diet. What’s more, they felt significantly hungrier, were less satisfied after meals, and lacked energy to exercise. Overall, those on a sleep-deprived diet experienced a 55 percent reduction in fat loss compared to their well-rested counterparts.

Tip: Carb Cycling and the Right Amount of Cardio - Biotest

The details will largely depend on what you've been doing, but a general approach would be to add 15-20 minutes of low to moderate intensity cardio either every training day (immediately after lifting or in the morning) or every "rest" day (any time). If you're already doing conditioning work, focus on a lower-than-usual intensity for more diverse training and do it as far apart from your current conditioning as possible.

If you're lucky and born with good separation then you might not need to train your abs directly; all you need is to get super lean. But most people will need to work their abs to get that look. Furthermore, the direct ab work will make the abdominal bellies thicker which also means that you won't need to get as lean to have ab definition.
