Are You Getting All You Need From Protein?

To building muscle, it's not enough to just consume lots of protein. You've got to make sure that protein contains the most important muscle-building amino acid of all. Here are four great ways to get it.

SciVation Xtend at Bodybuilding.com: Best Prices for Xtend

I tried Orange flavor, and turned out to be a fantastic choice when it comes to after taste. It was a great purchase via bodybuilding.com, as the flavors aren't really available in the Indian market, and even if they are it requires a lot of waiting time. Therefore, you are required to plan ahead all your workout-supplies. Recommend Orange, for a natural taste and ofcourse sugarfree!! :)

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.

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.

8
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.

10 Worst Bench Press Mistakes

Another common mistake is when people put their feet on the bench to “target their core.” The bench press is a strength exercise, not a core exercise — if you want to build a strong and massive upper-body, focus on lifting more weight with the bench press, not sculpting your abs. If you want to engage your core while sculpting your chest, try a Spiderman Pushup instead.

10
The Best Mobility Drill For Lifters & Athletes | T Nation

One of the best aspects about doing this simple drill is that you'll quickly find where you have the biggest restrictions, and at the same time use the tool that can fix them. As you work toward improved hip mobility, don't be surprised if you also find some pain. The rule of thumb is, take it slow and only move in pain-free ranges! Doing so will create a larger and larger pain-free range until eventually the entire movement can be done without pain.

11
Whey Or Casein For Muscle?

From my experience, it’s in one’s best interest to utilize a ratio of 70% cold-filtered whey protein isolate plus 20% micellar casein and 10% hydrolyzed whey peptides. Combining both fast- and slow-assimilating, high-quality protein sources provides the benefit of initial high blood amino acid levels and an insulinotropic response from whey protein isolate and hydrolyzed whey peptides, while the micellar casein sustains blood amino acid levels for up to six hours, which elicits an anticatabolic effect.

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 Truth About Waist Trainers | T Nation

A study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care sought to prove whether waist trainers could be used to maintain weight lost after participants followed a low-calorie diet. Study subjects were instructed to wear a waist trainer for at least five hours a day, five days a week, for nine months. Unfortunately, most study subjects found the waist trainer to be too uncomfortable to comply with the study guidelines, leaving the researchers to conclude that regardless of whether the waist trainer would have been effective or not, "corset treatment doesn't appear to be an option for sustained weight control."

15
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.

5 Best Bodyweight Training Exercises

Many people don’t realize the benefits of bodyweight training because in every magazine you see, there are dudes in the gym hitting weights. But, with all training, there is a regression and progression to every exercise. For example a regression for hanging leg lifts is performing a plank. The progression would be performing the movement with a medicine ball between your feet.

The skinny guy's workout program to build muscle

1: Eat up Aim for a gram of protein per pound of your body weight every day. So if you weigh 180 pounds, eat 180 grams. Take in starchy carbs like potatoes, rice, and oats; and snack on high-calorie (but healthy) foods like nuts, seeds, and other sources of good fats. If you don’t have the time or energy to commit to anything else, just remember to eat a lot of the right foods every day.

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.

6 Best Shoulder-Saving Exercises

Take a lacrosse or tennis ball and position it between a wall and the back of your shoulder blade. From there, move. Keep the arm straight and it over your head (flexion), down (extension), towards the midline of the body (adduction), and out towards the wall (abduction). Fix the ball in place and see what kind of pain free range of motion you can muster. Get creative. You can even form a 90-degree angle in your elbow and internally and externally rotate the shoulder. After moving the joint through every manageable position, move the ball slightly and try it again. Search for hot spots, “floss” the areas that don’t feel great and get ready to feel and move better.

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: Two Quad-Building Bike Workouts | T Nation

If you're stuck with one of those electronic exercise bikes on the cardio deck, you'll be able to make do. Remember, it's more about your focused execution and effort than the tool you're using. You can punish your quads on any of these setups.

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.

Tip: Stop Looking for Motivation | T Nation

It should be the same for lifters. If you need motivation to go to the gym, you're not a lifter – you're a hobbyist. In two, three, or five years, you'll likely ditch lifting and find some other "hobby," whether it be bird watching or collecting ceramic ducks, bottle caps, or panties that you filched from the public Laundromat, dividing them into subcategories of floral prints, pastels, and slut tones.

4 Easy Tricks to Lift More Weight Instantly

Here’s how it works: before your main lift, quickly expose your muscles to a heavy, non-fatiguing weight for a single set. Before you back squat 250 lbs. for 10 reps, for example, try a heavy set of 2 reps (at around 90% of your 1-rep max). Or you can use a set of heavy kettlebell swings to fire your glutes, activate your hip drive from the bottom, and spike your central nervous system.

Dumbbell Exercises for Massive Triceps

The sequence of these movements is always random. I'm not wedded to the heavy-first, definition-later philosophy. Sometimes I start with a deep-burning isolation exercise, such as one-arm dumbbell extensions, and end with close-grip benches or dips; at other times, it will be just the opposite. What matters is building a severe burn with my first exercise, then keeping it going through the others. In any case, dumbbell movements, especially the following three, are essential to all of my triceps workouts.

Six Deadly Diet Sins

Solution: During bodyfat reducing phases, try a four-on/one-off approach. Diet strictly for four days, eating 1 g of carbs per pound of bodyweight daily and taking in no carbs at each day'’s final meal. On the fifth day, take a break from dieting. Dramatically increase carb intake, up to as much as 3 grams per pound of bodyweight on that day. The higher carb intake not only will provide much-needed energy, but it will also prevent a drop in metabolic rate.

H2O for the Bodybuilder

As an athlete or a healthy person—you know soda is not the best choice for a beverage, but drinking plain water sometimes seems more like a chore rather than the right thing to do for your body. More and more people today are “hooked” on diet sodas and carbonated beverages than ever before. Bodybuilders on a contest diet like to drink it, as the carbonation keeps them full and they like the taste better than plain water. It also feels like a treat to have a diet soda in a world of plain, unseasoned contest foods. But not only can diet sodas hinder weight loss and upset your digestive process, they can also prevent your body from ridding itself of excess water. The hardest part of getting on the “drink water” bandwagon is getting of the soda roller coaster. Rather than going cold turkey and moving straight to plain water, I have a plan that I use with many athletes and clients that either have difculty getting enough fluids in or for those trying to kick the habit of carbonated drinks and sodas. If you are used to drinking diet soda and carbonated beverages, the easiest way I’ve found to kick the habit is to wean down.

15 Most Important Exercises For Men

Every gym-goer in the world has been asked “Whaddya bench?” at least once. This move is responsible for developing powerful, well-defined pecs, shoulders, and triceps, which lead to a more commanding presence, with or without a shirt on. Combine with that the muscle-building effects of the testosterone this move releases and all you have left to do is watch your “little black book” fill up.

The Bench Press Controversy

The bench press remains a superior movement, and it may be so for you, but only if you learn these lessons, as I did. First, it’s not an ego exercise, so don’t use it to see how much you can bench; use it to build your pecs. Second, adapt the exercise to your body rather than vice versa — if you feel it more in your chest muscles when you’re on a flat bench, then that’s the position you should use; if you feel it more at a specific angle, use that angle. Third, control the movement so that you feel the pump build in your pecs, right where you want it. - FLEX
