Raise the Bar

CONCLUSION Lifters are much stronger on barbell bench presses than on dumbbell bench presses. However, the Norwegian team also found that dumbbell presses use much less triceps muscle than barbell bench presses. This is likely due to the fact that the movement is more of an arc with dumbbells, as your arms move up and together. The barbell, on the other hand, only allows the arms to move straight up. This allows you to fatigue your triceps on bench presses first. Then when you move on to dumbbell presses, the triceps won’t be the weak link and you can focus more on the pecs.

Like Hoss

Fouad “Hoss” Abiad knew he wanted to be a bodybuilder when heattended his first bodybuilding event, the 2000 Toronto Pro. The pro portion of the show was dominated by such bodybuilding legends as Markus Rühl (who won) and future Mr. Olympia Dexter Jackson (runner-up), but it was the amateur part of the contest that stoked Abiad’s competitive fire. “A friend of mine, who I worked with at a bar, was competing,” remembers Abiad. “He was 220 or something like that, and I just thought it was crazy that he was up there, and I wanted to do it.”

A Smarter Chest Workout

The two incline movements in your routine imply that you want to build your upper chest , but you don’t need to dedicate so much time to that in one workout. Try hitting your chest with more frequency instead of bombing it with volume. Train it twice a week (the second workout only needs to consist of two or three chest moves), and perform pushups with your feet elevated two other days a week for 100 total reps. (Take as many sets as you need to hit that number.) Hitting the chest frequently with various forms of stimuli will yield greater gains and decrease the risk of burnout and injury.

Triple H: Remaking the Game

When a guy has not one but two Motorhead songs written about him, calling him a bad ass is such an understatement it’s almost insulting. Triple H, aka Paul Michael Levesque, cemented his status as a pro wrestling legend long ago, having played a major part in the WWE’s infamous Attitude Era—when his battles with anti-hero characters like The Rock and outrageous antics such as flipping the bird drew record TV ratings. But with 13 world-title reigns under his belt, Triple H is now spending more time in the board room than the locker room as one of the WWE’s top executives. That said, “The Game” still laces up his boots for the occasional pay-per-view event, and, at age 45, 
is the strongest, healthiest, and most agile he’s ever been. As Lemmy Kilmister said, “Bow down to the king...”

Top 10 Energy-Boosting Foods and Drinks

“Nuts and dried fruit are the ideal combination of healthy fats, fiber and protein. While refined carbs that are void of fiber quickly break down into glucose for short bursts of energy, fiber helps slow down glucose-release so there is always a steady supply. Similar to fiber, protein also slows down metabolism of carbs and repairs muscle damage to prevent post-training soreness. Fats such as nuts, seeds and oils are notorious for providing long-lasting energy particularly for longer runs or swims over an hour. Since carbs are the first macronutrient to get used during activity, they can become easily depleted at which point the body relies on energy from fat,” Moskovitz says.  Energy Tip:  To avoid excess sugars and oils that can be added to many popular trail mixes get creative and make your own! Combine all your favorite raw nuts such as pistachios, almonds or peanuts with seeds plus dried fruit. Add in some whole grain cereal or pretzels to pack in more fueling carbohydrates.
