The New Running 101

While that may strike you as a touch dramatic, it’s actually not: In fact, each year, up to 80% of America’s 53 million runners get injured. That’s more than 42 million injured runners last year, which is an even more staggering number when you consider that the figure doesn’t include athletes who get hurt from running while playing other sports. And by injuries, we’re talking about everything from broken bones to insidious, slow-forming conditions like runner’s knee, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, iliotibial band syndrome, and stress fractures—the kind of painful stuff that drives runners mad and sends them screaming for the bike saddle in warmer months.

The Ultimate Arnold Training Guide

His workouts lasted hours, with a seemingly endless number of exercises and sets. It was the epitome of high-volume training, a style of working out criticized by most training experts today as not allowing adequate muscle recovery. But there was a method to Arnold’s madness. In the following slides, you’ll see— body part by body part—the actual workouts the Austrian Oak performed while in the prime of his career, when he was the undisputed king of bodybuilding.

You Should Know Squat

If you want to be the best bodybuilder you can be, and you don’t suffer from chronic knee or hip issues, then you should make the squat your best friend— whether you like it or not. Below, I’ve compiled some tips to keep in mind the next time you climb under a bar.

Giant Sets for Giant Gains

So you’ve got dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and turkey pepperoni. The prospect of eating each individually, cold and uncooked, is not very appetizing. But stack them together and apply heat and you can bake the perfect cheat meal—pizza. This is the logic of giant sets, which combine four or more exercises into what is, in effect, one extended set. The sum is greater than the parts. “Going giant” has long been a way of upping workout intensity, but for some bodybuilders it’s more. It’s a training philosophy. For extended periods, you can cook up consistent gains by making giant sets the main dish of your routines.

Add Two Inches to Your Chest

The rate at which your muscles apply force determines the number and type
 of muscle fibers that are recruited, and recruiting them all is the path to complete growth and development. We’re prescribing speed bench presses, done with light weight for maximum velocity, to target your most explosive muscle fibers. (These also happen to be the largest.) Speed training serves another purpose too: training you to blast through sticking points in your bench press so you can lift heavier weights in subsequent workouts and therefore apply a more intense muscle- building stimulus.

7 Reasons to Take Control of Your Macros

It eliminates the ‘cheat’ mentality. Ever have a day where you can’t eat your normal foods and it turns into an all you can eat buffet and you wake up many pounds heavier, pissed off that you just sabotaged several weeks of hard work? Why did it happen? Because you weren’t flexible with your nutrition, you had no idea how to incorporate other foods. But if you are tracking your macronutrient intake, you don’t have to fall victim to the ‘cheating’ mentality. There are no cheats, just hit your daily macronutrient intake. If your friends are going out for pizza, there’s no reason you can’t join them on occasion. Instead of eating 2 large pizzas on your own because you are ‘cheating', just fit a couple of slices into your daily macronutrient intake. Is it something you want to do for every meal? Of course not (plus it’s impossible unless you are eating over 5000 calories per day). But having a modest amount of these foods and being able to stay on target and consistent with your goals is much better than completely falling off the wagon.

How to Get Stronger, Bigger Calves

“The most common calf training mistake I see is mindlessly going through the motions of the exercises, using excessive momentum, and bouncing at the bottom of a move,” Seedman says. To counter this, he recommends two courses of action. First, squeeze your calves maximally at the top of any movement—say, calf raises—by holding the fully contracted position for two to three seconds. This creates tension and metabolic stress in the muscle, both of which are critical for maximizing growth. Second, control the eccentric movement (the two to three second lowering phase) and hold the fully stretched position for an additional three seconds. “Not only will this break down the surrounding fascia (connective tissue that covers your muscles and hinders growth) but this technique will also produce the greatest muscular damage, which is key for triggering muscle hypertrophy,” Seedman adds.

Phil Heath's Strategy for Building Big Legs

When I’m working legs, there’s pretty much no leg exercise I am not doing. I like to train quads and hamstrings in the same workout. I try to hit one part as hard as I hit the other, because the hams matter, too—especially in the side poses. And when I’m prioritizing legs, I will double down on them, training them twice a week, with each session lasting at least two hours.

5 Sex Questions You've Googled Unsuccessfully (Until Now)

The only downside, as Dr. Schiff points out, is that the information you find on the Internet sometimes isn’t as helpful as just calling your doctor in the first place. A Sex and STD Questions on the Internet survey  using over 40,000 questions from Yahoo! Answers about sex and STDs revealed which topics are the most frequently searched. We’ve taken five of those questions and have gone straight to the professionals for you. That said, if you have any health concerns, call your doctor immediately, schedule an appointment, and read this in the waiting room.

Every now and then a muscle group needs a jolt of something intense – a workout you’ve never done before that will spark new muscle growth and strength. Below is just such a workout for the shoulders. The routine gets going with a brief but brutal rest-pause scheme for overhead dumbbell presses , then finishes off all three delt heads with a shrug, a flye and a face pull for high reps. Before getting into the workout, make sure your shoulders are warmed up with some light lateral raises and overhead presses. Then, have it at.

This Average Joe Got Jacked - Bodybuilding.com

"In elementary school, there was one time I tried to lose weight, and managed to drop 10 pounds," he says. The numbers on the scale continued to dwindle throughout Joe's junior high and high school days and left him with a trim 170 pounds on his 6-foot-tall frame at the start of sophomore year. "I was in the best shape I'd ever been in, but then college inactivity set in," he says, reminiscing. "All of my friends were partying and eating pizza and cheeseburgers, and it was like, 'Why can't I do that as well?' By my senior year I'd gained 100 pounds. I knew something had to change.

The Kuclo Chronicle

When her heart stopped, the 777 was cruising at an altitude of 30,000 feet. Three hours prior, she’d suffered severe abdominal pain. Then, when an announcement asked if there were any emergency personnel on the flight from Rio de Janeiro to Miami, it was Dallas firefighter-paramedic Steve Kuclo who responded to assist the Brazilian woman. She seemingly recovered. But later, her husband noticed she wasn’t breathing. A worried flight attendant retrieved Kuclo again. He carried the woman to the back of the plane. There, for 40 minutes until the jet emergency landed in Costa Rica, he did all he could with the available medical equipment to save her life. She couldn’t be revived. Death is a familiar aspect in one of Kuclo’s jobs. What made this valiant lifesaving attempt unique was its stark proximity to his other, more celebrated job. He was returning from Rio, having won the Arnold Classic Brazil the day before.

Half Reps for Full-Range Benefits?

No one will disagree that good form is important to avoid injury. But what this evidence argues is that moving the weight through a joint’s full range of motion is not necessary to increase both strength and size. Truth be told, I see several professional bodybuilders using a partial range of motion. There is an exception to this, however. When training for competitive strength events, make sure you train the way you will compete. If a competition squat is thighs parallel to the floor, then train down to parallel.
