What All Squatters Knee'd To Know!

So good, in fact, that you must do them. I don't care if you're a bodybuilder, a powerlifter or a ballerina. Ya gotta do them! The question is, how? The answer is, as safely as possible without losing any of the benefits! Sorta like drugs, no? The art and science of medicine dictates that while using drugs, you must minimize the risks while maximizing the benefits.

The Suicide Grip: Dangerous or Smart? | T Nation

I don't always program Smith machine presses, but when I do I use a false grip. If you're accustomed to using it for the press, or want to take a walk on the wild side of highly non-functional training (I kid, I kid) the Smith machine can give you one hell of a contraction for the pecs and shoulders... but only when setup, bench angle, and form are right.

The 5 Different Types of Body Fat | T Nation

Along the same lines, you can make white fat cells turn "beige" by using this same cold temp protocol, albeit without the Aquaman suits. Japanese researchers had 12 men with lower than average amounts of brown fat sit in rooms that had been cooled to 63 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours a day for six weeks. At the conclusion of the experiment, their bodies had "browned" some of their white fat and as a result were burning an extra 289 calories a day.

Tip: How to Make the Most Newbie Gains | T Nation

You might not even need to spend an hour in the gym at this point. And it might not feel like you're getting shredded or putting in hard work. Why? Because you just aren't strong enough to make it hard. Benching 95 pounds for 3 sets of 5 is going to take about 10 minutes, warm-up included. Same with a 135-pound squat.

Tip: Ramp Up Your Prowler Training | T Nation

Most people can push more weight on the Prowler-style sled with the bent-arm pushing style, so the weight-load you use can influence your arm position. When you're pushing heavier loads for shorter distances or durations, you may want to choose the bent-arm position. Conversely, when you're and pushing the sled for longer distances or durations with lighter loads, you may want to go with using the straight-arm position.

Tip: The Inverse Squat | T Nation

Lifters usually run into trouble with the squat, not because they lack strength, but because of their problem with one of the three S's. This can lead to pain at the lower back, shoulders, or knees. It'll also limit the amount they're able to lift.

Tip: Reverse Your Romanian Deadlift | T Nation

So if you're not doing it, add those hip hinge movements back into your training. But don't jump right into the standard barbell deadlift. First learn to stabilize, then groove and sequence the hip hinge from the top down using RDL (Romanian deadlift) variations.

How To Keep Your Muscle While Leaning Out

You're also able to push far heavier loads when using multijoint movements. Doing so triggers the release of anabolic hormones that can have a tremendous effect of muscle gain and fat burning. That doesn't mean you should avoid single-joint movements. And for all practical purposes, that's almost impossible to do with shoulder, biceps, and triceps workouts. But keep the focus on multijoint moves.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - You’re not in the mood to share your goals with anyone today. You prefer everyone to think that all your efforts are going toward more immediate concerns. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to take your mind off your future now, since you know that every move you make is part of a long-term trajectory. Unfortunately, the amount of cerebral energy you use to keep your deep-rooted truth a secret is a greater burden than describing it. Revealing your dreams inspires others to do the same.

The 8 Rules of Maximal Strength | T Nation

There's no denying it works. Too many lifters, both genetically gifted and not so much, have used it with great success. But when most people think of periodization, they think of a bunch of percentage charts and cycles based around meets. And that can be part of it. But you also need to periodize your entire training blocks at times and put some things on the back burner while making other things a priority.

The 10 best exercises for football players

How to do it : Stand in athletic stance, with both feet on the ground but most of your weight on your right leg. Squat slightly with the right leg, then use it and your glutes to jump to your left. Extend your right leg as you leap and land on your left leg only. Regain your balance and repeat to the other side. Hold for a count of three on each side. Do 10 per side.

The pullup plan for beginners

Write down your personal record—the most reps you can do with good form. The next time you do pullups , take half your PR and do four sets of that number. So if you PR was 10, you'll do four sets of five reps. The next week, add one rep to each set. For Week 3, go back to one half of your PR number, and add 5lbs using a weighted belt. Continue progressing in this fashion.

10 Ways To Burn Fat And Keep It Off For Good

Running for an hour may burn more calories than a one-hour strength workout, but weight training causes you to keep burning calories for days after the workout is over. Repairing and rebuilding the damaged muscle fibers requires energy—that is, the calories you’re consuming, which might otherwise be stored around your waist. On top of the metabolic effect, weight training boosts your natural fat-fighting hormones like testosterone and growth hormone.

Tip: Hanging Leg Raise – 3 Mistakes to Avoid | T Nation

In addition to using the abs, hanging leg raises rely heavily on the serratus anterior for stability, which has a huge effect on the entire abdominal region. You'll also get additional grip, arm, and shoulder work just by hanging from the bar. Sadly they're also one of the most commonly butchered exercises. Here's how they should look:

What Really Happened? by Andrew Jenks Entertainment, Inc. on Apple Podcasts

“History is a version of past events that people have decided to agree upon," Napoleon Bonaparte once famously said. In other words, there are many sides to every story. WHAT REALLY HAPPENED? chronicles documentarian Andrew Jenks as he examines and contextualizes famous figures and historical events, while discovering untold stories and unraveling newfound narratives. With today’s technology, access to information, the ability to communicate from all parts of the globe, and cross-reference historians, Jenks takes on his own rogue investigations. He does not go down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories, nor does the show purport to solve every historical mystery. Instead, Jenks often times throws a wrench in the gears of history, getting either closer to the truth or creating more questions. WHAT REALLY HAPPENED is executive produced by Seven Bucks Productions’ Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and Brian Gewirtz, Andrew Jenks and Cadence13.

Tip: Testosterone Blood Tests Are Garbage - Biotest

What time of day you have your blood drawn is also tricky. The current thinking is that you need to have blood tests done early in the morning, unless you're an old or older bastard, at which point it probably doesn't matter. In younger men (those under 45 or so), testosterone levels are higher in the morning, probably peaking at about 8:00 AM and reaching their low point about 12 hours later.

3 Types of Pans You Definitely Do Not Need In Your Kitchen

This is especially true when it comes to pans. Garlic presses and cherry pitters and egg slicers, as hopelessly useless as they are, don’t take up all that much room in your kitchen. But pans can gum up the works. They can be big and bulky. They can create clutter. And they can cost big bucks—especially if they are the hyper-specialized kind that you really didn’t need in the first place.

Now that your shoulders are warmed up, we’re getting you yoked up by throwing in the military press as your finishing move.

Paul Kita's Cookbook Is for Everyone

"I was sort of sick of this idea that every meal had to be a project, or every meal required a hunt," Kita says (referring to hunting ingredients, though you never know). So, he assembled the 100 recipes and core of lessons found in A Man, A Pan, A Plan for easy education. "The majority of the meals that I’m cooking at home are done with minimal equipment," the James Beard Award-winner says, "in one pan, in the 15 minutes I have when I get home, before the hanger kicks in," and that's what the book will help you plan for. From Spicy Bison Bacon Burgers, to Grilled Cauliflower Steaks with Tahini and Herb Sauce, to a Giant Oatmeal-Almond-Craisin Cookie, A Man, A Pan, A Plan has every meal covered in simple, quick, tasty, and nutritious fashion that will get you further than any can opener could. And just because it's from Men's Health doesn't mean it's not for everybody—as Kita says, ease of cooking, taste, and health should be unisex ideas.

Arnold's Tips for Building Up Your Quads

HOW TO   | The best way to develop the “teardrop” that every guy wants (or should want) is to do leg presses. But here’s the trick: Because the vastus medialis works hardest when the knee is fully bent, I suggest using a range of motion where you go all the way down (as far as you can without your lower back coming up off of the pad), but rise only three-quarters of the way back up on every rep. Do these for a few months and your lower quads will cease to be a weakness.

Muscle detailing: 6 workout routines for rock-solid muscle definition

After months, or even years, of the same exercises day in and day out, you've done an outstanding job at holding your body back from its potential for next-level definition and hardness. You and your body are simply too accustomed to the same thing. We're creatures of habit with a tendency to follow the path of least resistance, or stick to the things we know. (Oh, look, there's that mind-muscle connection thing again). Everything's always the damn same. Squat, bench, dead, squat, bench, dead. You know it, we know it—they're the cornerstones.
