Muscle Pharm Combat Powder at Bodybuilding.com: Best Prices for Combat Powder.

Combat 100% PROTEIN POWDER Is designed for individuals or athletes who want a high quality multiple protein source that "feeds" muscles over a longer period of time (compared to traditional protein powders) and that can contribute to muscle repair and growth. Those with higher protein requirements(i.e. body builders) who cannot consume enough protein from their regular diet may also benefit from taking combat.

The 3 Stages of Real Strength Training | T Nation

We must stress the body only with the amount of volume we actually need. Too much and you'll overtrain and lose gains; too little and you won't stimulate an adaptation: muscle or strength gains. As strength increases, more reps are needed to continue to make gains. However, there's a point where the reps must taper and decrease in order to keep the progress going.

How to Lose 10 Pounds of Fat, Forever | T Nation

Those who achieve their body composition goal and maintain it are those who can stick with the changes they make in the long run. Sure, you can cut huge amounts of carbs and fats, basically surviving on only protein and stimulants, and you'll lose fat pretty fast. But such an approach can't be sustained, and it'll make you feel like crap.

Tip: This Herbal Drink Will Turn You Into a Jedi | T Nation

Tea? Sure, that's coffee's weaker sister. When coffee's friends come over, coffee ties tea to the towel rack by her pigtails and shuts the door. At least that's what people think. The reality is that tea has some pretty amazing cognitive and health benefits that rival or surpass coffee's, especially when you know how to manipulate it.

Tip: How to Increase Self-Control | T Nation

Maybe you're the guy who walks into the gym a few random days every week and then decides what body parts he's going to train. You're getting your exercise in and reaping some of the self-control benefits, but you'd reap more benefits by having a set workout program: the days you train, the time you go, the exercises you do, and how you progress from week to week.

6 things you need to know about Nitrosigine

Recovery can start before you even walk in the gym with the help of Nitrosigine. You can prepare your muscles for the hard work you’re about to put in. Nitrosigine has been shown to significantly reduce markers of muscle damage from exercise such as creatine kinase. Clinical research showed that Nitrosigine reduced creatine kinase levels after exercise by 56%. 1 Nitrosigine’s impact on muscle damage due to exercise can help you get back to the gym and stay in the game.

The 10 best black sneakers for men: fall 2017

There are only so many things an all-black sneaker can do to stand out, but this Filling Pieces model definitely does the job. According to the website, Filling Pieces are “handmade with great care in Portugal, using only the finest Italian materials.” This option is a bit pricey, but you’ll be gaining ground in the quality area, and you’ll be wearing a lesser-known manufacturer. Bottom line: This style will be sure to break at least a few necks every time you wear it. ($197.00, fillingpieces.com )

The 13 best hamstrings exercises of all time

How to do it: Lie down with your back, palms, and feet flat on the floor, knees bent. Bring one leg off the floor. Keep the knee bent and flex your toes toward your head. Hold this position as you press your working leg’s foot into the ground as you raise your hips, evenly, toward the ceiling. Keep your back straight, and engage your glutes at the top of the movement to prevent your lower back from sagging. Hold at the top for a 2-second count, then lower and repeat. Complete all reps for one side, then repeat on the other.

Tip: The Butt Pump Workout | T Nation

You've seen the inspirational fitness memes out there and you've thought to yourself, "I too wish I had a butt that looked like it was eating my underwear." Okay, maybe not. But your glutes do need some work, both for looking good and for making progress in the big lifts.

The 8 Worst Things to Do After a Workout

In a perfect world all of us would be able to grab about an hour’s nap right after training to help our muscles and nervous system recover, but for most this is just not possible. I recommend that at the very least you avoid physically strenuous activity after working out. You should take at least a little time to just sit, relax and comfortably consume your post-workout meal. Weight training will only be effective if the body gets adequate rest to allow for the rebuilding process to take place.

16
The Reverse Method | T Nation

Though the pin press can be set in a low enough position to have the bar start in contact with the chest, most lifters will be better off training the pin press just above the chest when in an arched and braced position. By setting the pins in a power rack 2-3 inches above the chest, we can limit the terminal end range of motion, making this lift more shoulder friendly while also working through common sticking points.

Top 10 Natural Anabolics for 2017

Anafuse is so potent (and re-ordered so often) it also made the Top 10 Bulking Supplements List, the only natural anabolic to do so.  But unlike many on that list Anafuse produces its results without influence on your hormones and with virtually no side effects. Anafuse combines the two most effective natural anabolic ingredients on the market today (Epicatechin & Laxogenin) with the addition of absorption enhancers. The customer feedback and re-order rate on this anabolic has been so stellar that is on pace to become one of the best selling supplements ever. Certainly worthy of its No. 1 position among the Top 10 Natural Anabolic Supplements this year. Read all the reviews here .

Tip: Good Salmon, Bad Salmon | T Nation

Trouble is, you're probably not really eating the type of salmon you think you are. You're probably eating something that's more closely related to a trout, one that's been dyed to mask its unappetizing gray color. What's more, that trout has been raised largely on a diet of grain, which negatively affects the amount and variety of omega-3 fatty acids in its meat.

The volume plus intensity training routine

On volume weeks, the weights will feel easy, since you’re coming off a week of heavy training. On intensity weeks, you’ll feel strong and focused because you’ll have to work up to only one or two hard sets. This back-and-forth undulation not only keeps your muscles guessing and prevents overtraining, it also provides a mental break and makes training more fun.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, September 18, 2017

Monday, September 18, 2017 - Your master plan for professional success has taken nearly everything into account. However, circumstances still diverge from your strategy as unexpected twists and turns bend reality. It might be disheartening to discover that much of your preparation is of little value now that so many things have changed forever. Don’t let sloppy thinking slip back into the equation while you recreate a new approach that’s more relevant to the current landscape. Author Robert Rolih wrote, “Knowing the right details gets you a great return. Ignore them and you just crash and burn.”

Thrash-Your-Guns Arm Routine

Usually, drop sets are done wrong. You don’t have to drop half the weight to do a drop set properly. It was proven that decreasing the weight by as little as 5-10% is the ideal drop and still respects your repetition range. For example, do tricep pressdowns with 100 lbs. for 10 reps, drop it to 90-95 lbs., and you’ll be able to crank out another clean 8 to 10 reps.

Tip: Hit the Right Squat Depth | T Nation

Once your pelvis starts to tilt under your body (butt wink) you've gone too far. Proper depth for you is the point right before you get butt wink. This may or may not include having your knees parallel to your hips, or having your hips drop below your knees. If your butt starts to get winky before your hips are parallel to your knees, however, you should really address your mobility.

Tip: How to Develop an Adonis Belt | T Nation

Most coaches say you can develop these muscles by variations of the plank, but that's largely a pipedream. Just as "making a muscle" with your flexed biceps in the mirror doesn't build big biceps, doing planks or any other essentially isometric movement isn't going to build up that ridge of TVA muscle that's adjacent to the iliac furrows.

Push and Drag Your Butt Into Shape | T Nation

Most are already familiar with the conventional sled training exercises like pushing the sled, pulling it forwards or backwards, rowing it as you walk backwards, etc. The conventional sled moves are great, but there are other ways to use the weight sled. And if you don't have access to a sled, you can always drag an old truck tire.

SciVation Xtend Go at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on Xtend Go!

Recently I've made a lifestyle change and I was looking for a better alternative to rockstar energy drinks that I was consuming every day; it got pretty bad. I actually first sampled this product at gnc and loved it and bought 4 of these the next day from bodybuilding. I love that I can drink this throughout the day and continuously get the energy I need and still consume 7g of BCAAs. Overall I probably consume one scoop with about 140 ounces of water throughout the day. Definitely helps with water intake if you're looking to add some taste to water and not get that huge rush of drinking 200mg of caffeine at once. It's definitely helped me maintain my focus and it's nice that it contains some added glutamine as a plus. I will definitely continue to use this product.

Tip: Don't Bother With Multivitamins | T Nation

Unfortunately, the only viable alternative, at least at this time, lies with eating a good diet, but you knew that. Besides, it's easier said than done. Hell, that's why people take multivitamins in the first place. It doesn't have to be daunting, though. We can go super minimalist and try eating regularly from the following short list of super-nutrient foods:

Saturday Leg Training

*I cannot do back squats due to my lower back, but this exercise serves as a good alternative.  Really control the rep tempo here and sink deep into your hips at the bottom.  Slow reps will seriously tax your legs and cardiovascular capacity; especially when doing 8 sets with 20 second rest breaks.

Huawei Band 2 Pro Review: The best fitness band for under $75?

The Huawei Band 2 Pro (yes, the name is a bit of a mouthful) is a $70 fitness tracker with a number of significant highlights. It not only has the typical heart rate tracking and step tracking, but also includes advanced features like GPS, waterproofing, and the option for continous heart rate tracking to measure VO2 max. In particular, continuous tracking is almost unheard of for a tracker under $100. As a result, I was excited to give the Band 2 Pro a try to see if it lived up to its promises.

Tip: Sledgehammer Arm Training | T Nation

7 ways to shred body fat in 7 days

Don’t work out later than three days before your event. If your party’s on Saturday, for example, do your last workout of the week on Wednesday—muscles bulge most when they’re flush with glycogen (the carbohydrates stored in muscle), so you need to give your body time to recover and replenish its glycogen stores before your unveiling. If you train too close to the big day, the carbs stored in your muscles will be depleted, and you’ll end up looking flat and soft. Furthermore, make sure this last workout focuses on the areas you want to highlight, such as chest and arms. Glycogen is replenished fastest in muscles that need it most—i.e., the ones that have just been worked—so if you want your pecs and biceps to pop, you have to make sure they soak up as many of the carbs you’re taking in as possible (explained in the next step).

If You Could Start Over Again

Get this. I was so uncoordinated and weak @105lbs , 1.77m, I got stuck at the bottom of a squat with just the barbell. I didn’t know what muscles to use at the bottom, tried to get up using only knee extension and ended up on tiptoes and finally on my knees while everyone was laughing at me. Apparantly some of them were impressed with my prolonged struggle to stand up and they displayed this by letting me go on and make a fool of myself. But that’s how I got them willing to show me the ropes after that incident. Nowadays, something like this would be interpreted as the “Big Boy’s Club” fit shaming a well intentioned noob victim.

5 Shoulder Training Lessons from Johnnie Jackson

With his full quota of carbs and calories in the off-season, Jackson regularly presses 150-pound dumbbells for 15 reps, uses 100 pound dumbbells for 10 reps of side laterals, and upright rows are 335 for 12 reps. He's hoisted as much as 405 for eight reps for upright rows. In the weeks leading up to a contest, Jackson increases his reps, decreases his rest periods between sets, and does more intensifying techniques, like supersets. "“Off-season I'’ll go down to five or six reps; pre-contest I'’ll go up to 15-20 reps,"” he states, "“so it's a pretty big shock to my body, using a lot more reps and resting a lot less between sets."

3 Moves to Bring Your Biceps to New Heights

The problem with effectively stimulating the brachialis is that with most standard curling movements the biceps act as the main flexor of the upper arm. You need to choose specific curling exercises that put the biceps in a mechanically weak position, so that the brachialis can get into the game. The more work you can force the brachialis to take on, the more it will be forced to adapt and grow.
