The Right Mindset for Optimal Training Performance

Earlier this year I took on a new client named Jim, a 74-year-old retired orthodontist. Jim had a torn rotator cuff and was not able to raise his right arm over his head. He had surgery to fix the issue back in 2001 but aggravated it again, and doctors were recommending another surgery. Jim wanted to get on with life and enjoy his retirement, not go under the knife again and plot out another long rehab process. To that end, he was motivated to do whatever it took to get the job done.

6 Ways to Deflate Your Waist After the Big Game

Just remember: Big game, big workout. Perform a high-volume full-body routine with a high-intensity cardio session a couple of hours before the game. The workout (shown below) will help deplete your glycogen stores. In addition, intense cardio has been shown to burn twice as many calories for up to twelve hours after the workout. Basically, all the food you shuttle in will help grow your muscles and not your waist.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, January 29, 2015

Friday, January 30, 2015 - Although you might think you can cleverly step around an emotional swamp today, you may still become enmeshed in someone else's drama. Luckily, you won't stay too serious for long, since your wicked sense of humor is your saving grace now. Just don't laugh things off too quickly; being funny just to avoid an important issue won't solve a thing. Nevertheless, a proper dose of lighthearted charm at the right moment is the perfect antidote to a sticky situation.

3 Keys to Competitive Success

3. Give your full effort each day. This kind of goes without saying, but be sure to give a full effort on every rep and every set. This optimally prepares you physically for the upcoming competition, but it also serves as a powerful mental tool come meet time. This not only applies to the actual weight room, but also to rest and recovery modalities. The biggest killer of athletic success is self-doubt. Wondering if you worked out as hard as you could have can be the nail in your competitive coffin. The athletes who know they have given full effort every workout can enter the competitive arena with supreme confidence.

Joe Manganiello's Upper-Body Workout

At 32 total sets, it’s a lot of work—and, like the TV show that made Manganiello famous, it’s not for the squeamish. But it will put hair (or fur?) on your chest, as well as make it bigger. Perform the bench press as straight sets. For the paired exercises (marked “a” and “b”), do one set of “a,” rest, then one set of “b,” and repeat the pair until all sets are complete. Rest 60–90 seconds after every set in the workout.

The Beginner’s Guide to Interval Training

With all of that said, the real magic of HIIT lies in its ability to keep you burning fat even after you leave the gym. In short, your body isn’t able to bring in enough oxygen during periods of hard work. Therefore, you accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result: your  metabolism  is revved for hours after you leave the gym. Trainers refer to this phenomena as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC. The biggest way to use it to your advantage is to make short, intense exercise bouts a regular piece of your workout regimen.

Get Big: 3 Moves to Blast Your Biceps

This unique take on the standard cable curl is a great way to target both heads of the biceps. This exercise will hit your arms from an entirely new angle. During most biceps exercises, your upper arms are parallel to your torso and you curl the weight from your waist to your chest. The advantage of the Guillotine Curl is that your upper arms are perpendicular to your torso, and you are curling the weight from a high cable towards your body. This provides a new stimulus for your muscles, which will yield results.

Daily Session: Pull-Up Bar Workout

The gym is crowded, sardine can packed - and the only thing available is the pull-up bar and the small amount of floor space directly under it. You could just decide to skip your workout , but you know it’s a slippery slope. Your missed workout today will totally derail your whole plan. Enter Bianca Sultana, NCSF-CPT and founder of BODYbyBianca Training System. She provided us with a workout to get the most out of that small space.

The Lift Doctor: Pre-Bedtime Snacks and Breaking Plateaus

Fidel, the answer is dependent upon how intense your training session was and what your food choices were throughout the day. If you limited your carbs during the day and are following an intermittent fasting or carb back-loading protocol, some healthy carbs at night will not have a negative impact on your body fat levels and will help your recovery.

By that I mean real food—food with the power to reverse the fat-gene switches that are triggered by our modern processed diets and set us back on the path to perfect health. In fact, studies show that the more processed food you eat, the greater your weight—even if you eat the same number of calories. It all goes back to inflammation, and why I built Zero Belly to calm the fire and turn off the fat-storage genes that processed foods turn on.

The Pullup-Pushup Workout

The only caveat to high-frequency training is the risk of overuse injuries, but you can avoid those by changing up your exercises so you don’t recruit the same muscles the same way every time. That’s why each of the workouts on these pages pairs up a different variation of the pullup and pushup.

6 Big Finishers for Every Major Muscle Group

Great endings—whether they occur in sports, on film or on your last date—are the memorable ones. Sure, what you do at the beginning of your routine when your energy levels are highest has a profound effect on how successful you are at reaching your goals. But it'’s what you do at the end that makes the difference between completing a workout that felt just good and one in which you're completely fatigued, pumped and exhilarated, having left it all on the gym floor. That's how you know you'’ve fully exhausted the muscle fibers, putting them in the best position to benefit optimally from the ensuing recuperation/repair/growth cycle. To put you squarely within that window of opportunity, here we prescribe a finishing move for each of your main muscle groups—an exercise or combo with which you complete that bodypart'’s workout and take the muscle to its working limit. We recommend isolation moves rather than multijoint exercises, allowing you to concentrate fully on the muscle in question and eliminating assistive muscle groups. In addition, we favor using machines over free weights, alleviating the worry about having to balance a weight after your stabilizer muscles have already been worked overtime.

6 Workouts For Chiseled Abs -

Great article, straight to the point and really provided a variety of exercises to help build a strong core! Loved to hear the emphasis on training your abs using weighted exercises and a lower rep range (8-12) in order to build those "bricks" in the Workout for Size section. Often times I feel people are mislead in their core training by doing rep after rep of a crunch thinking that the light at the end of the tunnel is a chiseled, deep-cut six-pack. Also, the different emphasis sections provide ways to target and bring up weak areas of your core.

How Many Eggs Are Safe to Eat? - Born Fitness

While the whites still offer protein, it’s only slightly more than 50 percent of the total amount. The yolks are part of what give eggs the highest possible biological value, which is a measure of how well a food suits your body’s protein needs. So if you’re looking for the healthiest way to eat your eggs, your best bet is to keep the yolk. (The exception: Let’s say you’re on a “diet” and are counting macros or keeping fat lower, there’s no problem just eating a bunch of eat whites and saving calories. Sometimes I do it myself, but the reason isn’t to avoid the yolk or for health reasons; it’s to save calories. There’s a big difference.)

No Carbs Diet: The Flaw in Fat Loss - Born Fitness

Glad that you wrote this article! I work at a Nutrition House and most of the weight loss advice I give stems from this kind of research. People do fear carbs and tend to have a very poor understanding of food and training in general; hence why they don’t lose any weight. I’ll certainly keep this in my bookmarks to share with those folks.

High Protein Healthier Nachos - Born Fitness

When you think nachos, the last thing that probably comes to mind is “healthy.” Maybe it’s the chips, the cheese, the sour cream, and more topping than you can imagine. (Did I mention the cheese?) But nachos don’t have to be a bad snack. In fact, they can be a protein loaded meal, if you make them the right way and are willing to make a few substitutions that maintain the taste but sacrifice some nutritional gut bombs (the type you don’t want). These are protein packed nachos. Perfect for a snack and always good for any sporting event.

Morning Muscle Meal: Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Scrambling eggs in the microwave means no caked-on-egg skillet to clean, but be careful of overcooking. In the microwave, eggs can very quickly go from just right to rubbery. Canadian bacon is cut from the pork loin, so it has about half the fat of traditional bacon. If you prefer, you can swap out the English muffin for toasted sprouted bread. If you don't mind some kick, Franks's RedHot adds negligible calories and can make you feel full faster.

Eat The Damn Dessert - Born Fitness

Learn your limits. Understand your triggers. And build a system that helps you succeed. But don’t remove all the foods you love. It’s a common recipe for disaster and one of the most common reason why so many diets actually fail.

Healthy Recipe: Egg Frittata Breakfast

We estimate that the average weightlifting guy walks around at about 15% body fat. This is well within healthy levels, but it’s not going to turn many heads on the beach. (Reminder: Beach abs are carved in winter.) To look that good, you need to get below 10%—the point at which most guys can see some definition—and preferably as low as 7%. Since nutrition is the most important aspect of getting lean, here's a lean-body breakfast recipe that won't derail your progress.

Get It Right: Reverse-Grip Bench Press

In the gym, some exercises might make you feel clumsy on the first go-round. The reverse-grip bench press is that kind of move, but few people actually give it a second chance. Unfortunately, they're missing out on an exercise that can dramatically shape their chests, specifically the upper portion, as well as their triceps. Once you've had some practice, you just might have a new special something to turn to on chest day. Follow these steps, always use a spotter and get it right!

Carb Backloading: Eating Carbohydrates to Get Lean, Muscular and Strong

2) Enjoy a Carb Nite On the evening of your 10th day, starting around 5 p.m., begin eating carbs. Your discipline can take a hiatus: eat pasta, pizza, french fries, or any other sugary/starchy carbs you can get your hands on. Want brownies or Krispy Kreme doughnuts? Go for it. High-glycemic carb sources like these are actually better choices than sweet potatoes and rice. You need to refill your carb stores, crank up your metabolism, and give your mind a break. You’ll get the best results if Carb Nite falls on a day you lift weights, so try to time it accordingly. Don’t worry about getting fat. Several studies show that because of the change in enzyme production that occurs in your body throughout your low-carb days, gaining fat on a Carb Nite is nearly impossible.

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry - Born Fitness

When it comes to “go-to” meals, stir fry’s tend to be a staple option. They’re quick, loaded with protein and vegetables, easy to make, and always taste incredible. This recipe offers a little extra flavor in the form of a unique mix of ginger and sriracha. The combination will leave you pleasantly surprises. (Or if you don’t like either ingredient, simply remove them and the dish still tastes great.)

7 Best Exercises for Fast Results

What you’ve done to build muscle in the past won’t necessarily keep working in the future. Of course basic lifts like the squat, bench press, and pullup will always have a place in your workouts, but adding a few new lifts to your repertoire can open up a world of new gains, reduce your risk for injury, and allow you to train hard when heavy weights or more conventional exercises just aren’t an option. You’re about to discover my seven favorite exercises for fast results.

Get That: The Tricep Horseshoe

Grab a set of dumbbells and lay back on a flat bench. With palms facing each other and arms straight up, lower the dumbbells down so they end up alongside your head. Keeping your elbows locked and stationary, squeeze and flex your arms straight up, using a locked, neutral wrist. Shoot for three sets of 12 to 15 reps. "Don’t forget, the tricep is comprised of three muscles that need equal attention to develop the complete horseshoe. You can also concentrate on one specific part over another if there is an imbalance or even switch around your grip positioning," Moretti says. Check out the rest of our Get That series >>
