8 At-Home Workouts to Lose Weight and Build Muscle

There are days when the gym is the perfect respite from a long day at work. You can get in, sweat, get out, and feel completely renewed. Then there are days when the gym is one giant irritation. There are two many people clanking weights, or chatting when they should be clanking weights, and all you want to do is walk back through the door and head home. Well, guess what? You can do that—and still get a killer workout in.

6 Sleep Tips For Weightlifters

So how much sack time should you be getting? There’s no hard-and-fast rule; aim for seven to eight hours per night.

Epic Olympia Showdown: COLEMAN vs. CUTLER, 2003

Ronnie Coleman wins his sixth consecutive Mr. Olympia title and his fourth at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, showing what one observer described as "muscles on muscles" - a bigger, tighter, better Ronnie than ever before, which is what he needed to defeat a lineup of top stars all hungry for his title.

Hardcore Contender - Tom Platz

Coming into the 1981 Olympia, he was 26, a middling pro, noted as much for his lack of upper-body mass as his outstanding legs. But that summer he had pushed his workouts into new realms of torture and made one of the most dramatic one-year transformations in the history of bodybuilding. Not only was his upper body catching up to the previous high standards of his legs, but — forget symmetry — his legs were traveling where none had gone before, and many believe his wheels still have not been surpassed. He stunned the physique world with a third at the controversial ’81 Olympia and was the talk of bodybuilding for the following year. “I’ll win or die trying,” he famously said of the Olympia, but a much smaller tragedy — a torn biceps — derailed his dream the following year when he was favored for victory but finished sixth. His physique was never the same. Still, that brash and brutal sentiment summarized Platz’s too-brief but legendarily intense quest for the Sandow.

5 Flexibility Marks Every Man Should Hit

Unfortunately, simply bending over and touching your toes post-workout isn't going to do the trick. It comes down to the right exercises and time. To help you decide where you need some extra work, we've outlined five flexibility tests that examine nearly every part of the body. Go through each test and find out where you fall short. Then, prioritize those areas to help increase your flexibility and ward off potential injury.

5 Moves for Monster Quads

Legs wobbly? Energy drained? This is certainly not the time to attempt an all-time personal best in your squat. But it is a great opportunity to use the squat in a different way — that is, as a low-weight, higher-rep effort to burn out the quads. If you don’t have a spotter, we recommend a Smith machine instead of the barbell, but in the latter case, even with someone standing by you should set the power-rack safeties to give yourself the ability to bail out in case of failure. You’ll do 5 sets with a light weight, perhaps 135, 185 or 225 depending on your usual strength in this lift (or less — no need for heroics here), and strive for 12 reps per set, trying to keep the rest periods to a minute or less.

Focus on Fiber For A Dietary Boost

Fiber won’t just assist in losing weight. Studies have shown that incorporating fiber into your daily diet can prevent heart disease and lower cholesterol, specifically soluble fiber. When it comes to lowering cholesterol, fiber influences the rate of fat absorption — reducing the amount of fat that’s present in the blood. An interesting muscle-building component is that fiber lowers blood glucose levels — preventing your muscles from feeding off of excess sugar. Tip: keep high fiber foods away from your post-workout meal because it’s the only time during the day that you want an insulin spike. Higher insulin levels post-workout help make for greater muscle gains.

Meat-Free Protein

5) BEANS They're a cheap but decent source of amino acids (the building blocks of protein), and they're loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Because most nonmeat sources of protein don't have all the essential amino acids, it's usually a good idea to combine them with other foods. Try a dish of red beans and rice, for instance. Both the rice and beans lack several key amino acids, so putting the two together is a match made in nutrient heaven. And it tastes damn good, too.

You're Reading The Protein Powder Label Wrong

Never judge a book by its cover or a canister by its label… or at least look beyond what the label TELLS you is important. Those big, bold circles, numbers, and aggressive words on protein products (GAIN MASS! SHRED!) are designed to sell powder… not necessarily to serve your goals. If you’re really serious about what you’re putting in your body then you need to do a little math. If you’re in the middle of serious training, when every single macro counts, the true value of your protein matters even more than those extra few reps you’re so proud of yourself for putting up.
