12 Overlooked Foods You Should Be Eating | T Nation

Instead, think about which foods you like that keep you balanced and stable. An example, for me, is banana. When I eat it, it gives me just enough sweet, fills me up and provides good quality, stable energy. So much so it makes eating better foods later much easier. I used to avoid bananas, because they had "too many carbs" and, as a result of avoiding them, I ate even more carbs than I would otherwise... fat and salt too.

Should Your Workout Kick Your Ass?

Box jumps require a bit of experience and athleticism to do properly, but sprinting up a hill is doable for almost anybody. Find a fairly steep grade and dash up it. Walk back to the bottom and, when you’re ready, charge up the hill again; repeat for about 20 minutes. (You don’t need to go again right away—in fact, this may cause you to break form and get hurt, so don’t.) While running on flat ground can cause pulled hamstrings or hip flexors in beginners, sprinting on an incline slows you down so you don’t put the same pressure on your lower body. You can still work hard and not get hurt. Imagine that.

Tip: What Natural Lifters Can Learn From Arnold | T Nation

The more sessions you do (that provide enough of a stimulus to trigger the process) the more you'll grow. The trick is to trigger protein synthesis/anabolism in a muscle as often as possible, without doing too much work that leads to excessive damage (from which natural lifters can't recover from from in time), depletion of muscle glycogen (which is very anti-anabolic), and elevation of cortisol levels (which kills protein synthesis).

The 30-Day Plan to Grow Like a Monster

October is primetime for a training transition. Summer is long gone at this point and the opportunity presents itself to get off the ultra-low carb diet and high-intensity circuits and get on board with putting on mass and getting powerful. Not only does this transition work because you're swapping out the t-shirts for sweaters, but it's a fresh way to stimulate the body as well. In the grand scheme of things, you need these blocks of change. Month after month, week after week of continuous bombardment of the muscles with volume and intensity would wear anyone down. Let's use this month for size and power. And the way to do it effectively will require a change in thinking, and programming. Watch Brandon DaCruz (@bigdaddydacruz) demo his program below.

7 Ways to Make Your Biceps Workout Harder

Heaving up heavy weight with herky-jerky form may look impressive to newbies, but those who train hard understand proper form always trumps heavy weight. ”When your form is terrible your biceps look terrible,” Friedman says. “Instead of creating a nice shape for your arms, you’ll get bulky, blocky biceps because there was no focus on the tension. Try doing five seconds with the concentric phase and five seconds with the eccentric phase. And if that’s not a challenge, try five seconds up and 10 seconds down.”

The Top 5 Cardio Mistakes

We have to talk about it. As much as you’d rather discuss bench pressing, biceps or just about anything else, most bodybuilders spend more time on a treadmill or StepMill than a leg press or preacher bench. And when dieting down, most iron men and women invest more hours burning calories than pumping muscles. Still, the majority of trainers haven’t learned how to maximize their stationary strides. This month, we shed the fat and explain how to get your cardio back on track. Class is in session.

Chipper: The Hardest Workout in CrossFit History

Assembling a great CrossFit Chipper Workout of the Day (WOD) is a creative process, and the results are often epic workouts. The 2009 CrossFit Games’ Chipper is exactly that. Dave Castro and Tony Budding programmed this gem just minutes before the equipment was set up. In my humble opinion, it’s one of the best WODs ever. The workout is a series of Olympic lifts, gymnastic movements, and classic CrossFit skills, and completing it requires a combination of skill, stamina, strength, and mental toughness. It’s no wonder this was the final workout of the 2009 CrossFit Games, as it brings together so much of what CrossFit is all about.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, October 2, 2016

Sunday, October 2, 2016 - You could be obsessed with taking a creative or romantic risk today. However, your judgment may be clouded, leaving you lost in a daydream as the distance between you and reality grows wider. Although an inventive resolution might seem obvious in a spontaneous flash of genius, don't push your luck. Going to extremes can provoke a negative reaction; tone your rhetoric down a bit, or you might agitate unnecessary conflict. Keep the faith, even if it's difficult at first to tell whether you're slipping backward or making real progress.

C4 by Cellucor at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on C4!

Effective yet tasteful pre-workout! Have you been looking for a quick, energizing caffeine boost before lifting? If you have, Cellucor C4 Pre-workout is right for you! Cellucor’s unique blend of ingredients is perfect for a variety of lifters whether you’re just starting out in the gym, or you compete in bodybuilding competitions. Despite the fact that I’m an avid coffee drinker, Cellucor C4 always gives me an incredible surge of energy before my lifts as well as a better muscle pump. While I have tried other pre-workouts, I always come back to Cellucor C4 due to the wide variety of unique flavors, the effectiveness and the high quality product I always receive. Taste: One of my favorite aspects of this pre-workout is the taste. Cellucor offers their pre-workout in 12 different flavors, my favorite being the pink lemonade. Some of the more unique flavors they offer include: green apple, orange dreamsicle and strawberry margarita. With so many different options to choose from, there is a flavor out there for everyone and it takes a while to get bored of the brand. Not only is the taste very good, the blend of ingredients used is designed to not leave any sort of “sandy” or “gritty” flavor in your mouth or the bottom of your shaker cup.

4 Exercises for a Thick Back | T Nation

You can try these with pull-ups, but there's a high chance that your technique will be less than stellar. In the video, I had to drop the weight by more than 50 percent to maintain good form for all 8 reps. Even if someone only has to drop the weight by 10 percent, that's still significantly less weight than their total bodyweight. Hanging off a bar and trying to do the same thing with your pull-ups or chins will be even harder if you're a big dude. When it comes to isolating the muscles of the mid-back, less is usually more.

Tip: Train Biceps Every Damn Day for Fast Growth | T Nation

Since you'll be doing a fair amount of biceps work daily, you won't do anything else for biceps for 3-4 weeks. You'll get significant growth, and the daily heavy work will increase your biceps' capacity to recruit its fast-twitch fibers, making your bi's even more responsive to training after those 3-4 weeks.

5 Everyday Behaviors Keeping You From Losing Fat

Weight loss isn't a simple cause-and-effect scenario where eating less equates to weighing less. When you limit your caloric intake too much, you throw off ghrelin and leptin levels. These two key metabolic hormones suppress and raise your appetite. "Calorie restriction leads to higher levels of ghrelin (the hormone that stimulates hunger) and lower levels of leptin (the hormone that suppresses hunger and boosts your body's ability to burn fat)," Westerkamp says. It goes against everything you've heard about fad diets and trends, but eating too little won't lead to long term weight loss; you'll just burn less fat and always be hungry. "The best diet is the one you don’t know you’re on," Westerkamp adds. "This means adding in more of the good stuff (eat whole, unprocessed, anti-inflammatory foods) and making edits, not deletions (at least at first), to set your body up for success." Stop counting calories and put your attention on the quality of food you're eating. Aside from shedding fat, you’ll gain control over cravings, rev your metabolism, balance your hunger hormones, improve your energy, and allow your body to be the fat-burning machine it was designed to be.

The 7 Best Workouts for Fat Loss - Biotest

Walking, however, won't raise cortisol. In fact, it might lower it because it helps you unwind and relax. While it won't burn a ton of calories, it can still make a significant difference. A fairly rapid walking pace can use up about 350-400 calories in an hour. Over a week that comes up to 2400-2800 calories. A pound of fat is about 3500 calories. While the math isn't quite that straightforward, it could amount to an extra 4-5 pounds of fat loss over a 12-week period.
