Flex Lewis's Top 10 Training Principles
Flex is doing it his way. The Welsh Dragon and his nutritionist/trainer Neil Hill have fresh ideas about working out. From rep ranges to rest to exercise selection, the 212 champ doesn’t do things the same old way, because he doesn’t want to achieve the same old results. No, he’s striving for the ultimate. Rep after rep, set after set, Flex Lewis is reaching for his place in history. Three is the magic number, but 10 is the number of components that make his training unique.

Power Bodybuilding: Big Back Country
Last month you got a taste of the power bodybuilding world with my chest workout. Now, it’s time to smash your back with the same kind of weight and volume. The basic principles of the two workouts are identical—start with a main lift where you go as heavy as possible for your working sets, taking as much time as you need between sets to fully recover.
31 Awesome Leg Exercises
If you're a fan of "circuit style" training, this lower body blasting, leg workout video offers a great resource to pick a few exercises to do in a row, combined with an "active rest" movement, to make one round. According to fitness trainer, Andy McDermott - creator of this 31 exercise leg workout - variety is key. Not just physically, but mentally as well. Having an ample mix of leg exercise options to choose from ensures that you'll never have to do the exact same leg workout twice. And by switching up your routine, those plateaus that prevent you from adding more muscle will be obliterated.
Massive Pecs with One Move
Pat Casey, the first man to bench press 600 pounds, had weighted dips at the core of his program. As a bonus, heavy dips can also help performance on the overhead press. On a personal note, dips helped me win the overhead press with ease at the 2005 Atlantis Strongest Man in America Contest. Virtually every great presser has trained with dips at some point.
Women's Fitness: 4 Reasons The Word ''Toned'' Needs To Die - Bodybuilding.com
I completely agree with your comment. As I have progressed through my fitness goals this is has been a huge issue for me. Its almost like your damned if you do and damned if you don't. Women are ridiculed for being overweight and then when they are on the other side of the spectrum they are called 'gross' or 'manly'. Honestly I feel that people are more accepting to someone who is overweight than someone who is fit. Why would they call them sexy and curvy but fit women are repulsive? Cassie should write an article about that ;)
10 Rapid-Fire Fat-Burning Workouts
Summer is right around the corner, and it's the perfect time to get in gear. To get started we've curated ten fat-burning workouts from some of the best built bodies in the fitness industry.
Ultimate 3-Day Mass Building Routine
Gaining size isn’t as easy as it sounds. Your body is built to survive, not to look like an Olympia competitor, so putting on – and holding on – to muscle mass is a complicated, multilayered affair that can vary from person to person. But one thing everyone can do to maximize your ability to add new muscle is to select the right exercises – the type that will break down muscle tissue and trigger the hormonal responses that send your body into anabolic overdrive.
7 Early-Morning Stretches to Build a Better Body
Tired of waking up in the morning achy or constantly tight and sluggish? Chances are you're like everyone else who skips out on stretching. To start waking up with energy and safeguarding your body from injury, run through these seven quick and easy stretches for every muscle.
The 7% Body-Fat Diet
We estimate that the average weightlifting guy walks around at about 15% body fat. This is well within healthy levels, but it’s not going to turn many heads on the beach. (Reminder: Beach abs are carved in winter.) To look that good, you need to get below 10%—the point at which most guys can see some definition—and preferably as low as 7%. That seems to be the magic number associated with adjectives like shredded, diced, and genetically gifted (haters always gon’ hate). The plan is simple: six-pack, 7%, eight weeks. let’s go.
The Muscle Building Barbell Complex
You will start Week 1 with three sets of five reps for each exercise, resting no more than two minutes in between sets. You will add one rep each week until you reach eight reps for each exercise using the same weight for all sets. Once you reach three sets of eight reps with that weight, you will increase the weight and go back to three sets of five reps. You will perform this workout 2-3 times a week. If you’re more advanced, you can use this as a metabolic finisher 2-3 times per week, after your normal lifting session but you will have to adjust your weights down accordingly.
10 Best Moves to Lose Your Love Handles
You’ve tried situps, cardio, and dumbbell side bends, but nothing seems to get rid of that stubborn belly fat on your sides. Commonly called “love handles,” this area of your torso is part of the waist-to-hip ratio, an indicator of overall health. If you have too much cushion around your waist, ask yourself, "How hard am I really working in the gym?" To get the best moves for a slim torso , we asked Sadik Hadzovic, IFBB Men’s Physique professional for his 10 favorite exercises to keep love handles away. "This workout is effective because it's fast paced and designed to target both the rectus abdominals and the transverse abdominals," says Hadzovic. "To burn fat you must do more then just crunches and situps; You need to recruit your entire body to enter a thermogenic state that leads to an accelerated rate of fat loss." Complete your dream physique with these 10 moves that will carve up your core fast.

5 Things to Know About Boosting Your Metabolism
Are you looking for ways to boost your metabolism? Ask anybody who knows the basics and they’ll promptly tell you that the best way to keep your metabolism revving is by moving. More specifically, you need to exercise and build lean muscle mass and you must also stick to a quality diet consisting of high-protein foods that are low on calories. But, rest assured, there are other ways to get your metabolism going. We’ve come up with a list of five lesser-known strategies that should assist you in boosting your metabolism so that you more quickly reach your ultimate goal: a fitter and healthier you.
Do Carbohydrate Sources Matter?
While you can find flaws in the GI, GL and Insulin Index, you should still be able to extrapolate some practical knowledge from all three. For example, I don’t agree that GI is useless because it’s tested with no other nutrients. If you have a high GI meal with fat and you have a low GI meal with fat, do you really believe the response will be the same? I assure you it will not. One will still illicit more insulin being released. While this is fine in moderation, the prevalence of diabetes is showing that our pancreas can only tolerate so much. Young IIFYM users will chime in with, “but I eat cereal at all my meals for my carbs bro and a carb is a carb to the body.” My response is:

The Benefits of Creatine
Creatine supplements are popular among bodybuilders and competitive athletes. Creatine increases lean muscle mass by boosting intracellular water content, but other studies have shown that creatine increases the activity of satellite cells, which increases the potential for growth of muscle fibers and also aids in muscle recuperation. Recent research shows that creatine supplementation can also have a beneficial effect on cognitive performance. This is probably because creatine monohydrate supplementation results in significant increases in creatine concentrations in the human brain. Subjects were divided into a creatine group and a placebo group. They took 5 grams of creatine monohydrate or a placebo four times a day for seven days, immediately prior to the experiment. The subjects were sleep-deprived for six, 12, and 24 hours with intermittent exercise. The researchers found that at 24 hours, the group that supplemented with creatine had significantly better performance in respect to random movement generation, choice reaction time, balance, and mood state. The study indicated that creatine can aid in the mental functions of bodybuilders who may be sleep deprived and that creatine not only aids muscles, but it may also overcome brain fatigue.
Row to Grow
At the other extreme, there were two young college-age kids next to us doing chin-ups. On an exercise that most people avoid as much as deep squats, we put our time into chins and do at least five working sets each before progressing to any other movement. I have to say, these two young guys must’ve done at least that many. In fact it was so many sets, they were clearly burning out on the movement as they provided assistance to each other to force even more reps. After that, they headed to the wide-grip lat pulldown, where they completed a series of sets both in front and behind the neck. Unlike their rowing counterparts, these guys were all about pulldown work and no rows, and it showed. While they’d actually built some lat width, they both lacked any back depth or detail.

8 Alternatives to Energy Drinks
The Great Energy Drink Debate isn’t a new one. Are they really that bad for you? Do they boost your performance? A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition suggests the answer to both of those questions is yes. The four year study looked at performance among athletes who fueled up with energy drinks prior to hitting the big stage. At first glance, results look promising; athletes experienced a three to seven percent increase in their performance and reported feeling stronger and more powerful in their competitions.

Does Overtraining Cause Injuries?
If we take the case of the pitcher who executed too many throws, it is necessary to now look for underlying reasons. In my work, I have found that there are mainly two reasons for the injury to occur: improper technique or insufficient strength of the muscles and tissues as they relate specifically to the technique. In other words, the pitcher either had a flaw in his technique that placed undue stress on the muscles and tissues or he had good technique, but the muscles and tissues were not sufficiently strong enough to withstand all the repetitions executed. In either case, the pitcher overstressed the muscles and tissues such as ligaments and tendons and, as a result, they became inflamed, strained or even torn.
The 8 Best Ways to Switch Up Your Plank
Planks are the new sit-ups for modern-day core training . People like numbers so instead of doing 300-500 sit-ups every night, they’ll form a statue-like creature on the floor next to their bed and be motionless for as long as possible. But, as with anything, we must apply the Principle of Progressive Overload to ensure continued progress. No one in their right mind wants to hold their planks longer and longer—thankfully, progressive overload can be applied by other means.

Farmer’s Squats: A Leg Blasting Change of Routine
Farmer’s squats are a great tool to have in your training toolbox, but, because of the extreme fatigue induced, they should be used sparingly. They should be used as a changeup to your normal leg routine during the accumulation phase. At most they should be used once every 6-8 weeks or so. The weight is obviously very light, in the 50% range, but it will differ from athlete to athlete based on individual conditioning levels, mental toughness, etc.

Common Beginner CrossFit Mistakes - Juggernaut Training Systems
I have had the recent pleasure of working with more and more CrossFit folks as of late. Man, they great clients! They are hardworking, dedicated, and meticulously follow their programs. Unfortunately, what I have found is that they tend to sabotage themselves a bit, either knowingly or unknowingly (I’m guessing the latter). These mistakes usually come from being a bit too ambitious with their approach to training, and not focusing on getting the basics down. The good news is these are easy to address! This is not meant to be a slight in any way, shape, or form on CrossFit or its athletes, but rather meant to genuinely help out those who are just starting out and falling in love with the sport. Here are some tips that could help you step up your competitiveness:

Hand Spacing Q & A
For example, when I performed barbell bench presses, I liked using a relatively wide hand spacing, with each hand placed about a foot beyond shoulder-width. With my hands positioned there, more stress was placed on my outer pecs, which resulted in making me look wider. Had I taken a narrower grip, say with my hands aligned with my shoulders, I would have hit more of the center of my chest muscles. If I’d used a close grip, the stresswould have been focused on my triceps, as well as the inner edge of my pectorals, which is where all the striations appear when you hit a most-muscular pose. The rule of thumb for chest is the wider the grip, the more you work the outer edge of your pecs; the closer the grip, the greater the stress on your center line.

While fresh fruits can lose some of their nutritional firepower (not to mention flavor) during their long trip from farm to store to shelves, frozen fruits are most often picked at their height of ripeness and then quickly frozen to lock in their nutrients and antioxidants.

Concentrate on the Negative
The eccentric portion of lifts causes more muscle damage—and growth! Fast-twitch muscle fibers contribute mostly to muscle strength and have greater potential for increases in mass. Explosive muscle contractions such as sprinting, Olympic lifting, and plyometrics activate more fast-twitch muscle fibers. The slow-twitch muscle fibers are more efficient at extended muscle contractions over a long period of time. Therefore, slow-twitch fibers are great at helping athletes run marathons and bicycle for hours. Eccentric contractions (i.e., lowering the weight) have been found to increase muscle mass and strength compared to concentric contractions (lifting the weight). The rationale is that as the muscle fiber is stretched during a contraction, more tension is placed on fewer muscle fibers and more damage occurs to the muscle fibers. Researchers examined both fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers after eccentric exercise. Eight men performed 210 eccentric contractions of the elbow flexors on an isokinetic dynamometer with one arm. Markers of muscle damage and strength were examined before and after exercise.
