9 Mindset Mantras for More Muscle
Most of us tend to look for external solutions to our bodybuilding problems. But did you ever stop and think that the true key to progress might lie somewhere within yourself ? Do you realize that the most powerful computer known to man is not sitting on your desk, but is stuck right between your ears, and smack inside your skull. I am talking about your brain, but more specifically, your MIND. The extraordinary power of one’s thoughts cannot be denied. “Mind over matter,” is real.

Cluster Set Training for Strength and Size
Now, you may be saying to yourself, “this sounds a lot like rest-pause training ,” and it is similar; but there are some differences. Both methods take advantage of your body’s explosive energy stores and their ability to replenish quickly but in the rest-pause method of training you have a set load and that load (or more precisely, the fatigue it induces) dictates the volume. In cluster set training you have a set volume and load that are pre-determined. Also, while in rest-pause training fatigue is a big goal, during cluster sets this is not the focus.

How to Stay Small and Weak
Great article Chase. I used to fall into these traps too (except for the abs, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to see my abs). Back when I was in high school I used to buy into all of the bullshit FLEX magazine and others were spewing. I always wanted to be and look strong and thought I had to train and eat like the guys and use all the supplements in those magazines to get that way. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to train with Charles Staley and Phil Stevens back in 2010 and started seriously training and eating for powerlifting and then later for strongman that everything changed for me. I’ve since brought my bodyweight up to 282 pounds, although I’m cutting some now so I can be in the 265 pound class at Beast of the Bluegrass. I think I was around 198 pounds back in 2010. Anyway excellent article. Btw do you ever listen to any Iron Radio? They had an episode awhile back about how to stay small and it was a pretty good episode.
8 Barbell Moves to Burn Fat and Build Muscle
In a workplace where the typical nine-to-five has become a night spent at the office, we understand that time, especially in the gym, is of the essence. To accommodate for limited gym time, try one of the best techniques to jack up your heart rate and harden your body: the complex. A complex is a series of lifts combined in a nonstop, continuous movement using the same piece of equipment.
5 Ways to Eat for Strength
You'd probably like to think that lifting big weight is simply a matter of big muscles —that if you have hulking lats, you can row a barbell loaded with clanking plates until next Thursday. However, if you're not fueling your body properly, you'll find out in a hurry just how shortsighted that philosophy is. You've probably heard the analogy before: your musculature is like a car—if you fuel it with junk, it'll perform like junk. That is absolutely true when it comes to training for strength . If you're looking to move the most weight possible, then you're going to have to make sure that your muscles are performing like they're running on jet fuel, not 87 octane from your discount, corner gas station. Here are five ways to make sure your body is firing on all cylinders each time you step up to the rack, bench or platform for a big lift.
Reform: The 12-Week Transformation Workout Plan
Tyler Stewart is the new guy at Muscle & Fitness . Tyler is also completely out of shape (we'll even call him the least fit guy on staff). He prefers to write GIF-laden pieces about Arnold's best movies over the latest abs routine, but he was a prime candidate to give this program a test run and show off his results in real time. He's Dan's glorified guinea pig, and you can watch him get tortured each week as the program progresses. For the next 12 weeks, we will add the workouts and videos as they progress each Wednesday. No personal trainer? No problem. Dan's insights are a big part of this program and you can watch feedback in real time.
Band-Only Shoulder Routine
The knock on lateral raises done with free weights is that the first half of the movement is easy. Your shoulders start to really kick in only toward the top, when your arms are extended out from your sides. Bands, however, put tension on your muscles throughout the whole movement and make it harder at the end range of motion. If you thought bands were just making the best of a bad situation (no free weights), this workout will change your mind—and fry your shoulders.

Get the Ultimate Upper Body Workout
Each and every one of us steps foot into the gym because we want to improve our physical selves. While we all might have different goals, the same theme exists for all of us…progression. Now, there are a few guys out there that get to body build for a living. Perhaps they've been lucky enough to gain major sponsorship or have lucrative contracts with a magazine and/or sports supplement manufacturer. These guys “get paid” to workout, so for them the gym is their office.

The Ultimate Ceviche Recipe - Born Fitness
It’s a snack. It’s a meal. And it goes great with chips. There are few options that are both as healthy and flavorful as ceviche. This simple recipe loads up on the protein and allows you to cook this in about 20 minutes. The hard part: Waiting for it to marinate in the fridge without digging in prematurely.
The Truth About Strength Training Program
That’s the logic behind The Truth About Strength Training program—a 12-week workout and diet plan I wrote for regular, busy people who want to get the most benefit from the least amount of effort. It requires four lifting sessions that shouldn’t take more than an hour to complete each and will have you setting new personal records on your squat, bench press, and deadlift in no time.
The Ins and Outs of Knee Wraps
The first comes with “tagging” the wraps. This is what I call it when you make the last tuck of the wrap under the front of the knee so that a couple inches stick out in front of the knee. This is done to create an illusion of greater depth. While this does work and should be done with wide and medium stance lifters, I’m not so sure it is a good idea for close stance lifters. The reason for this is that the wrap will create an illusion of a longer lever, creating a longer distance from the end of the wrap to the hip joint. Since your joints are almost in a straight line, this gives a very easy market to judge from. If it was still pulled out to the front but up, it would distort this and make the top of the knee look lower than the wrap at the bottom.
Hollywood's Hottest Geek: Olivia Munn
Call her what you want—dork, spaz, nerd, or geek—it won’t faze Olivia Munn, who has spent the better part of her career breaking down the stereotype that you can’t be hot and nerdy. Seriously, have you seen that picture of her cosplaying Slave Leia? (Google image search. Now!) But her figure doesn’t come out of a comic book fantasy—Munn works just as hard as any other Hollywood babe. “When I’m in L.A. I work out with my trainer on a regular basis,” Munn says. “She has a home gym, so she’s really flexible and can work out early morning or late at night depending on what my shooting schedule is.” 50 Hottest Female Trainers>>>

Shoulder Workout: Sophie Arvebrink's 5-Exercise Shoulder Smash - Bodybuilding.com
I always end my shoulder sessions with a machine exercise. Pick a machine that puts the main focus on the weak part of your shoulders. For example, if you rear delts are lacking, try a reverse pec deck fly or a cable exercise. Note that you can move the cable levels up or down to target a weaker area. Since you have 5 sets on this station, you can knock out multiple exercises or exercise variations.
Cardiologist-Approved Recipes for a Healthy Heart
When you’re young and healthy, it’s hard to get hung up on taking care of your ticker. But when cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States—and risk factors, like high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, diabetes and obesity, are tied to what you eat—it’s never too early to adopt some heart-healthy eating habits. But that doesn’t mean you need to down a bowl of oatmeal at every meal. We asked Richard Collins, MD, a.k.a. The Cooking Cardiologist to hook us up with some heart-healthy recipes that actually taste good. These four are packed with cardiac-conscious ingredients, like lean meats, antioxidants, healthy fats and low-fat dairy.
HIT Supplements Muscle Matrix at Bodybuilding.com
No matter what your goals are, improving performance during training is extremely important. Athletes in all realms of sport benefit from improved performance, better endurance, and less recovery time.* Many studies suggest that BCAA's have the ability to be a powerful performance enhancer, and because of their unique metabolism within the muscle tissue, they also make an effective energy source for working muscles. This type of metabolism allows BCAA's to become a quick energy source for the body during prolonged exercise, making HIT Muscle Matrix extremely effective when taken during and after training sessions. Regardless of whether you train in the gym, on a bike, or enjoy running, hiking, or swimming, taking HIT Muscle Matrix, will help you attain your exercise and fitness goals. Taking a Quality BCAA blend like HIT Muscle Matrix, will help facilitate higher intensity training for longer periods of time, with less fatigue.*This positive impact on performance is seen in both high intensity training as well as endurance training, and in both cases, will allow for faster muscle recovery.
How to Get Big
There is no “simple” answer to your question, but that doesn’t mean getting big is overly complicated. If you’re a beginner, the best way to get started is with a basic routine like some regularly featured in FLEX. However, the long-term “secret” is to get to know your body: what exercises it does and does not respond to, and what training frequency suits you best. For instance, I always found that my biceps grew quicker with barbell curls rather than dumbbell curls.

Ask Men's Fitness: At What Age Does a Person's Metabolism Start to Significantly Slow?
Your metabolism—the rate at which you burn calories—slows down much earlier than you might think. When you’re just 25, it starts its inevitable decline—as much as 2–4% each year—according to celebrity trainer and fitness expert Obi Obadike. But that doesn’t mean you’re doomed to grow old and fat. Yes, there are a lot of theories out there—for example, that eating hot peppers, drinking green tea, and skipping meals can speed up your metabolism—so it’s tempting to look for shortcuts.

Ever notice how cyclical the fitness industry is? Exercises that are part of every trainee’s regimen eventually fall out of favor only to reappear in workouts many years later. For example, chin-ups are once again a mainstay for trainees of all levels now that boot camp workouts and obstacle course competitions are so popular. Deadlifts are also making a comeback. However, some exercises that formerly were barbell basics continue to be shunned by trainers and athletes who believe the exercises are either ineffective or highly risky. That’s too bad – because some of those perceptions are unfounded.

Garlic Tablets Rival Blood Pressure Drug
For 24 weeks, more than 200 subjects with high blood pressure were asked to consume garlic (300, 600, 900, 1,200, or 1,500 mg), atenolol, or a placebo daily, with researchers monitoring diastolic and systolic blood pressure. Result: By week 24, blood pressure had significantly improved with garlic use. Garlic brought improvements in both a dose-and duration-dependent manner, and even in ways comparable to drug use.
