Age Doesn't Matter: STRONGER, Faster, Tougher STRENGTH Tips • Zach Even-Esh

In a world filled with entitlement, excuses and complainers, NOW more than ever is the time to spread the word on being STRONGER both in and out of the gym. Every time I hear someone complaining about something trivial, something that has ZERO effect on their own life, I feel like I need to drag …

Turning Pro, Regardless of WHO You Are & What You Do • Zach Even-Esh

Why do I send e mails every morning? Because only writing e mails when I feel like it is the sign of an amateur. Yesterday while doing a Instagram Live I was asked how and why I am still so fired up and motivated, even after almost 30 years of training. My answer was nothing …

Are BCAAs Or Whey Protein Better During Training?

As of today, there's not enough definitive research to say that a complete, fast-acting protein such as whey is superior to a BCAA supplement. However, the research seems to be leaning in that direction. If you're looking to maximize muscle growth—or to maintain it during a fat-loss phase—the smart move would seem to be the "whey way."

The 10 best workouts for weight loss

The definition of high intensity, tabatas have you alternating 20 seconds of hard effort with 10 seconds of rest, straight through for four minutes. “The best thing about the Tabata workout is that you can perform these short, intense routines with your own body weight in the comfort of your own home,” Reed says. “Tabata raises your heart rate, pumps up your muscles, and increases your fitness level.” These ones will have you alternating two exercises targeting the same muscle groups, and going from one to the next provides a kickbutt workout in 24 minutes.

Tip: Squat Without Hip Pain | T Nation

When you arch your lower back too much, you also excessively anteriorly tilt your pelvis. This is another position that closes off the hip joint, leading to pinching. Instead of "just arching," make sure you keep a neutral pelvis, fire all the musculature around your midsection in a 360 degree manner to promote optimal pelvic alignment and a pain-free squat.

Tip: Build Pecs Like A Pro | T Nation

First, lift moderately heavy weight with various intensity techniques sprinkled in, focusing on these essentials – flat and incline pressing. There are plenty of ways to do this, but I typically use 3 exercises for 4 sets each, and stay in the 6-12 rep range. Ultimately by the end of these 12 sets your chest should be both fatigued and pumped.

Build Boulder Shoulders with the Ahrens Press

Ahrens had no choice but to press the dumbbells in this style because he used special loadable dumbbells that were very long; in other words, it was impossible to press them straight because they would hit each other with the massive poundages he routinely threw overhead. Because of the lateral pressing motion, this exercise forces the medial delts or “caps” to work harder.

Tip: The Rolling Dip | T Nation

First timers will want to do a serious shoulder warm-up before attempting this exercise, along with several reps of traditional dips with a maxed out range of motion at the bottom. Though they look relatively easy, that roll from forearms parallel to perpendicular (and visa versa) isn't easy.

Tip: Build Even More Muscle With Dips | T Nation

Just anchor the band with a heavy dumbbell at your feet. Bands around your neck will also naturally bend you forwards and cause the pecs to get into a very deep stretch. They'll also create more tension at the top of the rep.

Tip: Master the Double Under | T Nation

Before attempting your first double under, make sure you get comfortable with single-under skipping at a fast pace. Practice adding velocity with every turn of the rope, even if it doesn't seem necessary. Doing this ensures you're fully in control of the rope. Many beginners allow the rope to turn on its own once they get it started. This will eventually set the rope and foot speed out of sync (the rope is influenced by the friction of the ground). Set the pace of the rope ­– don't allow the rope to set your pace.

The Absolute Worst Fitness Trend | T Nation

I think previous trends like CrossFit have acted as vehicles to take people further away from the core concept of training – to better health and wellness over the long term – and have promoted the element of competition and constantly one-upping the rest of the field. Though some of this mentality is necessary to see gains, people who don't compete and train for recreation are simply digging themselves a hole and setting the stage for injury.

Tip: High Tension Curls for New Arm Growth | T Nation

Get a band and angle it so that it provides maximum resistance at the top of the curl when the bicep is completely shortened. By doing so, there's never a drop-off in tension and you'll stimulate more muscle growth. As a bonus, the chest pad works as your built-in counterbalance against gravity, so you're forced to stay strict.

Broke Man's Guide to Muscle-Building Groceries

Do you truly use all the food you buy? You probably don't. Before stepping out of the house to buy more food, take an inventory of what you already have. Condiments, spices, frozen and canned food items should be on at that inventory list; this can easily slash your weekly food bill. Next on the list should be leftovers. Last night’s dinner can be today’s lunch, freeze it and it could be next week's lunch too. If you’re one to toss food after a meal, then you are that average American who’s a national statistic. That stat: 28 to 43 dollars of about 20 pounds of food a month gets tossed. So lesson learned here, learn to love your leftovers.

The workout to build shoulders like Vin Diesel

Because the joints in the shoulder are very mobile, they’re more susceptible to injury than other body parts, especially when you’re pressing heavy weights. Warming up properly so that the shoulders are pumped and well-prepared for heavier training to come cuts down your risk of feeling something pop or strain. That’s why we want you to follow the warmup we’ve included before the real lifting begins. It’s also why we put traditional meat-and-potatoes muscle-building moves like the military press later in the workouts. Yes, the exercises you do beforehand might fatigue you and limit the weight you can use on these lifts, but you’ll make it up in short order as you adapt.

Tip: Master the Double Under | T Nation

Before attempting your first double under, make sure you get comfortable with single-under skipping at a fast pace. Practice adding velocity with every turn of the rope, even if it doesn't seem necessary. Doing this ensures you're fully in control of the rope.

20 Tip: The World's Toughest Core Exercise | T Nation

Second, while the core plays a key role to stabilize the spine during renegade rows, the act of rowing the weight upwards and moving into shoulder extension causes the lats and upper back to work just as hard as the core to resist rotation. When the weight is held in the bottom position as shown below, the lats and middle back can't be relied on as heavily to resist rotation, placing a majority of anti-rotation responsibilities on the core.

12 Ways to Build Muscle Faster

Being strong doesn’t have anything to do with size. Some of the best powerlifters are females who weigh 130lbs. Your diet will control how much mass you build, but the more strength you have the better. The more muscle you have on your frame, the leaner and more ripped you will be. Heavy lifting will help build strong rock hard muscle. Don’t get caught up doing light weight for high reps in an attempt to lose more body fat. That does not work. Stay true to your heavy compound movements.

The beginner's guide to getting six-pack abs

While staying hydrated is important no matter your fitness goals, you absolutely have to drink up if you want to see the abs you’ve been working so hard to sculpt. Your body is two thirds water, and you want to make sure it stays that way, Delbridge says. Keeping your water levels up prevents water retention and helps your body rid itself of toxins and excess salt to reduce boat. And if you’re puffy, your abs aren’t going to look as chiseled as they could. When you hit the urinals, your pee should be pretty much clear.

10 Great Foods to Pump Up Your Brain

We all know about endorphins, the hormones that kick in after a workout and leave us in a euphoric state. Foods can trigger endorphin release too. Serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for happiness, improved learning and memory, and its anti-depressive properties, also floods our noggin when we eat smart. So how does this help us lift better? Easy. If we’re eating the right foods, we’re happier. If we’re happier, we’re more motivated to get off the couch and hit the gym. If our learning improves, we pick up a new routine more quickly. And if our cognitive skills are pumped, our brain can better store and retrieve the details of that new routine.

The Ins and Outs of Training to Failure

Failure is your friend. Failure to understand failure, however, is another story — especially in terms of taking sets to failure in your workouts. There’s a way to do it right and there’s a way to do it wrong, and we’re willing to wager that most of you are all too familiar with the latter. If you’re part of this failing-to-fail-properly group, however, you’re in luck. On the following pages, we define training to failure once and for all — and show you, with some help from our experts, how, why and when to break out this time-tested technique for adding mass and building the physique you’re after.

6 workout routines for rock-solid muscle definition and detail

You're not the only one that gets bored to hell with the same routine. Your muscles do too. (Oh, look, there's that mind-muscle connection thing again). After months, or even years of the same exercises day-in and day-out you've done an outstanding job at holding your body back from it's potential for next-level definition and hardness. You and your body are simply too accustomed to the same thing. We're creatures of habit with a tendency to follow the path of least resistance, or stick to the things we know. Everythings always the damn-same. Squat, bench, dead, squat, bench, dead. You know it, we know it—they're the cornerstones. But they're not the only exercises known to man. Step into advanced isolation training.

Musclepharm Combat 100% Whey at - Best Prices on Combat 100% Whey!

COMBAT 100% WHEY is a low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting protein supplement with minimal fat and low sodium that delivers fast digesting protein sources to build and maintain lean muscle mass. Combat 100% Whey combines two of the fastest digesting, most efficient, and cleanest protein sources available: Whey Protein Isolate and Whey protein Concentrate. Whey protein has the highest bioavailability among complete proteins (protein that contains a complete amino acid profile of all 9 essential amino acids) and also has the highest absorption rate among any other proteins. Whey protein isolate is a concentrated whey protein molecule “isolated” to remove any impurities such as fats, or sugars. This process, in turn, reduces the size of the molecule making it easier for the body to absorb and faster to digest. Additionally, Combat 100% Whey is low in sodium at only 65mg per serving. This can reduce the risk of excess water retention, further ensuring that the mass that you put on is the mass that you intended.

9 Tricks to Burn Fat Fast

You can’t get lean without adhering to a clean diet, but at the same time, occasionally straying — a.k.a. cheating — can actually assist in losing fat. This doesn’t mean you should eat fast food all day long; rather, that you can increase carbohydrate and overall calorie intake for a single day. You can even have one meal of anything you want: a pizza, a burger and fries, lasagna, etc.

6 Perfect Muscle-Building Meals

The following six meals have one thing in common: They're perfect. They'’re flawless. They're clean as can be, and they're ideal because they help you build muscle (provided you'’re hitting the gym devotedly), burn fat, and promote overall stellar health. And, conveniently, they account for a full day'’s worth of great eating. Not sure what to eat for breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? All of the above? Now you are. And while you may have to tweak portion sizes to fit your body type, the following meals are about as universally bodybuilder-friendly as they come. Enjoy.

No Carbs Required

You need two things to build muscle: protein and fat. That one’s pretty much a no-brainer, and no one in their right mind hopes to add slabs of muscle without downing plates of protein. Fat may not be at the forefront of thought for muscle gain, but it’s necessary, too—it’s the stuff that gives cells shape and structure. Carbs, however, do nothing structurally. They get converted to glycogen, which can be stored inside muscle tissue, but they’re not part of the muscle fiber. Yet, countless yams and cups of rice go down the gullet each day to promote muscle growth, and research from the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism shows that carbs don’t build muscle, but they speed up the process. That’s the whole point of battling with iron day-in and day-out: not only to grow slabs of muscle but also to layer on the fibers as quickly as possible. Carbs amplify our efforts under the bar.

Mark Wahlberg Flexes His Muscles on and Offscreen

Many of those lessons he absorbed in the gym. Success isn’t a lightning bolt from the sky; it’s an accretion of daily achievements. While his faith kept him centered and humble, Wahlberg’s dedication to the fitness lifestyle taught him how small goals lead to larger triumphs. At first, he wasn’t taken seriously by top critics and casting directors when he made the transition to actor, but now he’s an indispensable part of the Hollywood elite as an Oscar-nominated performer ( The Departed ) and executive producer ( Boardwalk Empire, Lone Survivor ).
Even when duking it out with an anthropomorphic teddy bear ( Ted and Ted 2 ), Wahlberg displays an athleticism unusual for A-listers, and his bulging, sculpted arms are a key sign that his muscularity isn’t just for show.

6 Techniques to Build Your Dream Physique Fast

The biggest difference between how my amateur and pro clients use these multipliers is how many they employ in one workout. An amateur might use one of these techniques in a workout, but pros use several techniques in a workout, such as partials, negative reps, and flexing. For the average bodybuilder, I recommend using one multiplier per workout. Over the course of time, incorporate all six of these intensity multipliers in your training to make gains like a pro.

Black Coffee for Bodybuilders

For years FLEX has recommended that bodybuilders drink plenty of black coffee every day. And we’re happy (and a bit surprised) to welcome the U.S. government aboard now that a dietary panel made a similar recommendation earlier this year: Every healthy adult should drink three to five cups of black coffee per day for optimal health. That’s particularly good news for bodybuilders who are trying to cut body fat while staying energized for intense workouts. Here are five ways black coffee helps support your bodybuilding gains.
