A true high-protein diet (3.4 g/kg) results in better body composition than a normal diet (2.3 g/kg) in healthy weight training men and women.

If you are a lean, healthy, resistance-training individual interested in building muscle and maximizing body composition, then you are part of a unique and understudied population when it comes to the ideal amount of protein you should be eating. Owed in no small part to the current health state of the world, most research investigating the effects dietary protein on body composition and health is done in unhealthy individuals.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, October 22, 2015

Thursday, October 22, 2015 - Your social life is in the midst of turmoil today, yet your inner voice continues to quietly sing, "Everything's going to be alright." Unfortunately, you may be strangely reluctant to listen to your optimistic instincts when it comes to your relationships. However, circumstances could spiral out of control if you allow yourself to lose hope. Maintain your spiritual equilibrium now; the strength of your convictions will gently lead you through the maze of confusion. Success is yours as long as you keep the faith.

This is SeaWorld's worst nightmare -- Californians are saying enough to orca captivity

SeaWorld's actions are no surprise to anyone who has watched Blackfish , the documentary exposé showing how SeaWorld forces these intelligent animals to perform tricks for the sake of entertainment and profits. But the Orca Welfare and Safety Act could change all that. The Act makes it illegal to “hold in captivity, or use, a wild-caught or captive-bred orca for performance or entertainment purposes."

5 Fast Bodyweight Workouts For Weight Loss

Outside of sheer convenience, there are other reasons to add this type of training in to your routine: “Bodyweight workouts are great if you want to give your body a rest from heavy lifting or just to switch your program up,” says Rodocoy. While great for bulking up quickly, heavy lifting isn’t exactly gentle on your muscles and joints. So, a little low impact work—that still gets you serious results—can ensure you stay injury-free and healthy.  So You're Thinking About Having A Cheat Day >>>

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Training Tips

While Arnold did conventional exercises, his training strategy was anything but. He approached leg days with an extraordinary tolerance for pain and dedication to push his body past its physical limits. While anyone can repeat the six exercises that make up his routine, few can duplicate his legs-into-Jell-O intensity. But we're guessing at least a few of you have the cojones to give it a try. That's why, for the first time ever, M&F is publishing the incredibly effective workout and training techniques that completely transformed Arnold'’s legs.

3 Reasons You're Not Ripped

One of the great training misconceptions is that lifting weights gets you bigger and cardio gets you leaner, period. As a result, the guy (or gal) who’s primary goal is to get more “defined” often makes cardio the centerpiece of his program, while lifting takes a backseat. And by “centerpiece”, we’re talking 45-60 minutes on the treadmill followed by 15-20 minutes of pumping iron. What you end up with is some weight loss perhaps (provided a clean diet is followed), but a body that’s no leaner than before.

Add Protein to Your Breakfast to Reduce Cravings, Says Study

Published in Nutrition Journal , the study called for participants to either skip breakfast, eat a normal breakfast (15% of calories from protein) or a high-protein breakfast (40% of calories from protein, including eggs and beef) for seven consecutive days. On day seven, food cravings and dopamine levels were examined. Breakfast eaters reported an initial decline in sweet cravings followed by a progressive incline while the breakfast-skippers’ cravings saw a purely upward tick.

Monster Nutrition Plan For Building Muscle

After several weeks, you should see some initial movement, both on the scale and with the weights you're using. Progress may be slight; though some individuals can make faster progress, for most men, adding about two pounds of solid muscle a month is more the norm. While this may not seem like much, that's 24 pounds over the course of a year, a very healthy gain! When you consider that most of the physiques you admire have taken years to build—not months—you'll understand that this is a long-term process that requires diligence, patience, and discipline.

Power Up Your Jump Squats (Literally)

For the study, men came into the lab on three separate occasions, each time doing a different warm-up before completing weighted jump squats. For one warm-up, the men did three sets of three reps of a barbell back squat. The second warm-up involved doing three sets of three reps of a squat with a resistance band, and the third consisted of two 30-second static lower body stretches.

Weight Training for Your Body Type

The same kind of training will not work for every body type. Just as different trees require differing amounts of water and sunlight, differing body types require different stimuli in different amounts. No one program can effectively train all three body types. Some people need lower reps, and more rest, while others need higher reps and shorter rest periods. It all depends on you and your body.

Flex Lewis' Upper Pec Blast

Before I started working with Neil, my chest training wasn’t as consistent. One session would be good, and the next not so good. Working with Neil helped me establish a stronger mind-muscle connection with my chest, and I started getting strong contractions where I could actually feel my chest working. What I’ve learned is that the weight is irrelevant—attention to detail makes all the difference. Little things, like not locking out at the top of presses—instead I stop about three inches above my chest, which helps me keep my delts and triceps out of it—had a big effect. Squeezing is important if you want to feel the results through your chest.

Deload to Reload

Scaling back every month or so is a good rule of thumb, but this depends on the individual. Those who require more recovery from heavy lifting may need to deload every fourth week, while guys who don’t tend to break down as quickly can probably get away with deloading every seventh or eighth week. “If you’re a regular gym-goer, you’re going to have to find out what works best for your body,” Smitley says. “Experience level will also determine the deload. If you have a beginner, deloading every fourth week is almost a waste because they’re so new to weight training that the body will continue to adapt to anything. But if you get someone who’s been in the game for a long time, he’s probably going to deload every fourth week as a norm.

Mindset, Motivation, and Mistakes: An Interview With Martin Rooney

To set the record straight on things done “wrong,” I trained in a day when I drank out of the backyard hose, didn’t have a foam roll, Y’s and T’s were just letters of the alphabet, and it was ok to say you liked “burn” the seated calf machine produced.  My first gym was a bench and lat set with 200 pounds of sand-filled weights in my basement and yes, I invested in and used the Weider Arm Blaster, an ez curl bar, and actually thought my lifting gloves were cool as hell.  My warmup consisted of a glance at a Muscle and Fitness, admiring a double bicep pose and my Zubaz pants in the mirror and loading a bar with my first exercise.  Yes I did Sissy Squats, Donkey Raises, and (god forbid) Quad Extensions all while wearing my zebra-striped Valeo Belt.  My pre-workout was a soda, I ate fast food after school and finished training sessions with high rep abs in which I flexed my spine and had raw eggs and ice cream in my post workout shake.  By today’s expectations, the “smart” people of the training world might not only consider me lucky to have gotten results, but even more lucky to be alive!  I consider myself more lucky to have learned the lessons these experiences taught me on how to do things “right.

How to Go Vegan and Still Gain Muscle

If you’re looking to hop on the vegan bandwagon, don’t fret. There are plenty of deliciously healthy  protein-rich recipes  that you can whip up. Going vegan means that you will cut out of your diet animal products including meat, chicken, eggs, dairy, fish, and even honey. Instead, your diet will focus on the following food groups: vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits, and  fats . Having a more limited diet means that you need to make conscious decisions about what you eat to ensure that your body is getting the nutrients it needs to build and maintain muscle and keep healthy.

Simeon Panda's 5 Keys To A Great Arm Routine

Sure, your biceps and triceps are smaller body parts, and workouts typically include more single-joint exercises (targeting one muscle) rather than multijoint movements, which call upon more than one muscle group to complete. But it's a mistake to take a higher-rep approach and train your arms differently than you would, say, your chest or back. That means you want to train to failure, and choose a weight that causes you to reach failure within 8-12 reps.

If you start too low, the barbell will end up too far in front of your body (not good for your back) and put you in a much weaker position.
