3 ways to add strongman training into your workout

The Isometric Deadlift Cycle That Took My Deadlift to 800 Pounds in 22 Months

Isometrics are so terrible, in fact, that I am going to give you the exact cycle I use. If you are willing to go through everything I lay out, I am willing to give it away.

Practical Application for Developing Rotational Power

All sports are rotational to some degree. Here are some effective ways to develop and assess rotational power within a team setting.

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 …

EVLUTION NUTRITION Stacked Protein at - Best Prices on Stacked Protein!

EVLUTION NUTRITION's "Stacked Protein" is an AMAZING supplement! When I'm looking for a protein powder, I look for something that is a good bang for my buck with no amino spiking, no fillers, a good protein:carb ratio, and an overall clean protein. My favourite flavour is the Birthday Cake. I would give it a 9/10 for dissolving. The flavour is unreal and actually lives up to its' name, unlike competitors birthday cake flavours. This is an amazing choice in protein pancakes, desserts, shakes with water or almond milk - you name it. My second favourite flavour is the vanilla ice cream, which SERIOUSLY tastes like Vanilla Ice Cream. This is amazing for any use. My least favourite flavour that I have tried is the cookies and cream. Although this is my least favourite, it is an amazing protein. I would give this one a 910 for dissolving. This is amazing if mixed with any other protein flavour and especially when making protein pancakes. This is a refreshing shake after the gym to feed my muscles with protein.

Cardio: The Strength and Muscle Killer? | T Nation

Picture this: You're locked in a small airplane on your way to the Arnold Sports Expo with some massive protein-consuming dudes. Out of nowhere, one of them has a massive protein fart. Even if you're sitting in the back of the plane, there's a good chance you'll know what just happened.

Push-Ups for Real Strength | T Nation

This part is easy. Just keep the lower body tight. Sure, you can squeeze the glutes and flex the quads, but you don't need to go full-blown high-threshold when you're doing a standard push-up. Instead, find a normal amount of tension for the task at hand. Save all those high-tension strategies for when you're doing those single-arm, blindfolded push-ups on a medicine ball.

The 30-day plan to grow like a monster

It is primetime for a training transition. Summer is long gone at this point and the opportunity presents itself to get off the ultra-low carb diet and high-intensity circuits and get on board with putting on mass and getting powerful. Not only does this transition work because you're swapping out the t-shirts for sweaters, but it's a fresh way to stimulate the body as well. In the grand scheme of things, you need these blocks of change. Month after month, week after week of continuous bombardment of the muscles with volume and intensity would wear anyone down. Let's use this month for size and power. And the way to do it effectively will require a change in thinking, and programming. Watch Brandon DaCruz ( @bigdaddydacruz ) demo his program below.

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 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.

The Very Best Way to Build Your Chest | T Nation

It will take you three weeks to reach a 60-second squeeze, and you'll achieve more chest growth in that time than you have in any other three-week stretch. Do this exercise in addition to your current chest training, either during your workout or as a stand-alone mini session. If you want even more chest growth at the end of the three weeks, use the same progression and go from 60 seconds to 100 seconds for each set.

New Year, New You 2017

New Year's has a way of getting you amped up to make some serious health and fitness changes while simultaneously bog you down with the pressure to fulfill such resolutions. You're intimidated, a little confused, and probably reeling from weeks of holiday party binging.

The ultimate beginner's workout program

3. Train two days per week: This isn’t asking a lot, so try to go at the same times every week. Get used to making appointments with yourself and keeping them. But if you don’t feel like working out, don’t. Just go to the gym, walk in, and leave if you want. The important thing is that you establish the habit of going. At the very least, change into your workout clothes when you get there—you can change back out of them and leave right away. In no time, you’ll be going to the gym and staying to train, and regular exercise will be a part of your life.

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."

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 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.

5 ways to add inches to your arms

Complete a set of incline dumbbell curls for 10 repetitions. After finishing use the bench as a prop to hold with you hands and lean your body forward while stretching the biceps muscle. Hold this position for 15-30 seconds and repeat on the other arm. Rest another 15 seconds and complete another 10 repetitions of curls. Run through this routine for 3-5 sets.

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.

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: Make Pullovers More Effective | T Nation

But if you don't have access to antique strength training equipment, then the dumbbell pullover is a solid alternative. Problem is, once the dumbbell crosses over your face there's basically zero resistance in the movement. Here's how to solve that problem.

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.

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.

Tip: Interval Training Workouts for the Rower | T Nation

These two routines are not only fat incinerators, they'll also help to build your glutes and quads. Check 'em out.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, January 19, 2017

Thursday, January 19, 2017 - Reality reins you in now and you probably won't like having your wings clipped if you recently took an issue too far. Although you can't fly freely today, retreating won't help the situation either. The stress from assertive Mars' dynamic square to repressive Saturn in your sign can be irritating, especially if you're itching for a little adventure. But it's not useful to blindly ignore the signs; instead, postpone any new activities until you address the current blockages. If you are persistent without forcing the issue, the resistance will play out on its own.

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.

2 ways to redefine your chest workouts

Afterward, you'll do dumbbell alternating presses—another chest exercise—and you'll probably find you can use a heavier load than you anticipated. That's because, at this point, it will have been long enough since you completed the bench presses that your chest will feel almost fresh again. And because you're not blitzing your chest completely each session, you'll be able to recover in time for your next one-and more frequent training means faster growth.T

10 Ways To Burn Fat And Keep It Off For Good

Running for an hour may burn more calories than a one-hour strength workout, but weight training causes you to keep burning calories for days after the workout is over. Repairing and rebuilding the damaged muscle fibers requires energy—that is, the calories you’re consuming, which might otherwise be stored around your waist. On top of the metabolic effect, weight training boosts your natural fat-fighting hormones like testosterone and growth hormone.

Top 5 Triceps Training Mistakes

As the name suggests, your triceps have three heads: long (upper inside), medial (lower inside) and lateral (outside). The heads always work together, so it’s impossible to isolate one from the others. However, the angle of your arms changes the emphasis, stressing the heads differently. Too many bodybuilders are unaware of how various exercises hit their tri’s, and thus they typically overemphasize their lateral heads and underemphasize the long and medial heads.

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.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Shoulder Workout

"Go lighter and focus on contracting and squeezing the shoulder blades together, controlling the negative portion of the exercise to increase time under tension," Dave Rienzi, The Rock's trainer, advises.

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.

Avoid These Six Mistakes In the Gym

Considering those six rules, here’s an important caveat: just because someone at your gym, or even a pro bodybuilder like me, tells you to do something, that’s no reason to follow his every move. Analyze the advice you receive as you apply it to yourself, and don’t follow a routine or diet endlessly if you’re not seeing tangible results. That’s not to say you should haphazardly switch directions at every sign of a plateau — far from it. But be ready to tweak your approach while evaluating its effects.

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.

Tip: The Bodysaw for Real Core Strength | T Nation

Go back only as far as you can handle while still maintaining your original spine position. If you start to arch excessively and/or feel them in your lower back, you've gone too far. They're a lot tougher than they look, so it probably won't take much range of motion to feel them working.

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.
