5 Reasons Your _____ Is Small | T Nation

No exercise is indispensable, so the typical squat/bench/deadlift may not always be the answer for your body. For example, I back-squatted religiously 2 to 3 times a week for my first 5 to 7 years of training. Regardless, I had poor thigh development. It wasn't until a back injury forced me to switch to front squats, hack squats, and leg presses that they finally started growing.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, January 21, 2018

Sunday, January 21, 2018 - People admire your extroverted nature and adventurous spirit, but your most significant growth now comes from an inner journey that is invisible to everyone else. The Sun is shining its life-affirming rays on expansive Jupiter in your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery. Your subconscious holds the secret keys to your destiny and you are being offered a chance to unlock the door leading to the wisdom you seek. However, there is no map that points the way to this metaphysical treasure. This path is for your footsteps alone.

Tip: The Least Effective Core Exercise | T Nation

It's like a teeter totter. If you have a tiny kid on one side and a fat kid on the other, the tiny kid will have a hard time making the fat kid go up. He'll have to use muscular effort (slamming himself down the seat) to do the job. But if both kids are the same weight it requires almost no effort to get started, and once started pretty much no effort is needed.

Tip: Two Lifts for Real Athletic Strength | T Nation

This lift is as simple as it is brutal. It requires you to assume an athletic stance before beginning the movement. Developing strength in an athletic stance will transfer to any sport or life activity. Whether you need to prepare to tackle a running back who's running full steam at you or are just trying to lift your groceries off the floor, everyone will need to be strong in this position at some point.

Tip: The Best Rest Periods for Arm Growth | T Nation

This is the rest interval I typically take when in pre-contest mode. It's enough time to recharge for your next set, but not so long that you lose focus. If you're alternating between biceps and triceps exercises, the timing should work itself out. Just go back and forth, banging out your sets.

And I’m only talking about building muscle. What, good heavens, makes the process so difficult, heady and mysterious?

Tip: Get Harder Down There | T Nation

 Without adequate levels of testosterone, or more importantly, a proper free testosterone/estrogen ratio , you likely won't get an erection, at least not from sexual stimulation. In fact, sex will probably be one of the last things on your mind, ranking right down there with horseshoes and scabies. If you have trouble getting an erection for the simple reason that you have no sex drive; that frankly, you'd rather watch "Flip or Flop Boise" on HGTV than have sex, you just might be low on testosterone. Get yourself tested for both free testosterone and estrogen using the sensitive assay .

Tip: Use This to Make Exercise More Effective - Biotest

But yes, some supplement company founded in India paid for the research, and I suppose that's a potential bugaboo because there's the possibility of coercion. Maybe the company held guns to their dogs' heads or forced them to watch Bollywood movies until they agreed to publish favorable results, but people pay too much attention to that. I mean, who the hell else is going to pay for the research on a particular supplement that has no patent protection? You? Your Aunt Trudy? I think not.

Hardcore Answers to Newbie Questions | T Nation

I still see guys who've been lifting more than a decade do traditional bulking and cutting phases, and it's perplexing. Add extra layers of blubber for a season, and sure, you'll end up with a little extra muscle. But even for advanced guys, the ratio of muscle gain to fat gain is way out of whack, and it's not worth it.

https://www.ironmanmagazine.com/long-muscle-memory/

Scientists have discovered a cellular memory in muscle that seems to remember hypertrophy and is able to regain mass faster after losing it. One aspect of hypertrophy is the recruitment of myonuclei form satellite cells. Muscle fibers that have attained a higher number of myonuclei grow faster. Research now shows that muscles hold onto those myonuclei even when subjected to atrophy from disuse. Scientists hypothesize that muscles retain this feature for over 15 years and possibly for life, although elderly athletes have a harder time attracting myonuclei than younger ones. Still, this is nothing short of a public service announcement for the introduction of weight training to teenagers.

The Best Low-Carb Bread Recipe

We could all use a little more bread and vegetables in our life, but one is viewed as healthy and the other a pain to to eat. But who says we can’t have both in our diet and enjoy it? Packed with protein, high in fiber and low in carbohydrates, this cauliflower bread will be sure to please your taste buds. It’s a perfect garlic bread alternative to the popular zucchini “spaghetti” and meatballs. Toast a slice up with your morning omelet for a protein-packed breakfast, or eat it when you just want to eat a piece bread because you’re a human and it tastes good.

Tip: The Best Damn Sleep Tip Ever - Biotest

Your schedule will vary of course, but it all starts with hitting the sack earlier than you do now and allowing the sleep machinery to finish its job. Yes, I know you're busy and yes, I know you can't do this with a newborn in the house. (I also know you watch several hours of TV a night.) But at least try to allow yourself a "window" for your wake time rather than setting an alarm for a designated time.
