Relying on your intuition to interpret the messages allows you to discover new ways to maximize your current potential.

The Big 25

Add the farmer’s walk to your cardio regimen. Hold moderate to heavy dumbbells at your sides with your abs pulled and take long strides, walking until you can no longer grip the dumbbells. Rest 90 seconds each time you fail and then go again, striding for 10-20 minutes total. This gives you the calorie burning of cardio while increasing your grip and core strength.

Seven Best Carbs to Build Muscle

Benefit: A mass builder with fiber You can determine a quality bran muffin by reading the label, but your best bet may be to make your own. Purchase any high-fiber cereal that has a muffin recipe on the side of the box. Substitute honey for sugar, add two or three scoops of whey protein to the mix, and you have a high-carb, protein-rich snack. Fiber in the cereal makes the end product low glycemic or "slow burning," which is ideal for bodybuilders who struggle to stay relatively lean while bulking up.

10 Questions All Lifters Should Know How to Answer

TUT is the total amount of time a muscle is placed under stress during the length of a set. Your cadence, or tempo, for each rep determines your TUT. For example, if you’re using a 3/1/3 cadence (three seconds on the positive portion of a movement, pause for one second at the apex, and then take three seconds on the negative) for 7 reps your time under tension for that set is 49 seconds.

The 12 Most Common Fitness Mistakes Guys Make

Fix it: Instead of busting out the calculator app on your iPhone to add up all that poundage, ease up and focus on the quality of the movement instead, Holland suggests. “Keep in mind that gains happen during the eccentric (stretch) portion of the lift—plus you’ll be less likely to injure yourself.” Use a two-second up (concentric) and five-second down/stretch (eccentric) focus so you control the weight the entire way—and use a weight that works within this range for you.

Giant Sets for Giant Legs

Whether you train legs or not the giant set below should help you break through your plateaus and new pain barriers. In case you're not familiar with the giant set it's basically a combination of 3 or more exercises with less than 60 seconds rest in-between.

Bodybuilding vs. Weightlifting: Go Heavy!

Weightlifting creates a different kind of physique than does bodybuilding. While weightlifters frequently do a lot of bodybuilding-type workouts, they generally concentrate on training with the heaviest weights possible for very low reps—triples (three reps), doubles (two reps) and singles (one all-out rep). This approach is designed to create maximum strength, but it doesn’t produce the same kind of shapely, defined and well-proportioned muscle that you get doing a true bodybuilding routine. That kind of development results from using moderate to heavy weight and higher repetitions (somewhere between eight and 15 reps, typically), as well as a program that focuses on all the major muscle groups and specific areas within these groups.

The 14 Best Things You Can Do for Your Body

Your quality of life is largely dictated by one factor: your physical health. And when it comes to building and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, we all know that eating right and working out are more or less the keys. But there’s more to being healthy than choosing brown rice over white and hitting the gym five days a week. To take your health to the next level, you’ve got to think details, like meditation, flossing, and sex frequency (don't worry: research says the more, the better). If you’re ready to live to 100, start off with these 14 habits.

6 Easy Ways To Burn More Fat!

I really enjoyed reading this article! It's very informative. I usually see myself as eating pretty healthy and clean, and I am still struggling with cutting some bodyfat. I do intervals when running, with sprints/jogs, but the cardio intervals sounds like a great idea to keep my heart rate up when lifting. I have tried CLA & LeanMode, but never consistently, so I will need to keep up on that! I usually do follow these basic tips for dairy though. I was unaware about carb cycling, so I will need to try that as well! Id like a little more info on the carb intake though, as I'm never sure about exactly how much protein/carbs I should have. This article was very informative overall.

Universal Nutrition Animal Whey at

An impressive Supplement Facts box wouldn't be enough, however, it would have to live up to hype in the field—on the weight room floors of the most hardcore gyms in the world... In the shaker cups and blenders of the most committed lifters out there. It would have to mix with ease and taste great, making drinking multiple shakes per day a pleasure, not a painful chore. Because let's face it, if your protein powder tastes like shit, it is less likely you will drink it as much as needed to hit your daily macronutrient goals. Unacceptable. To be worthy of the Animal aegis, it would have to taste as good as it worked. And once again, in this regard, Animal WHEY is a triumph.

Diet Plans: Considerations for Muscle Gain, Fat Loss, and Stubborn Body Types

Just as important (and often overlooked) is that your current state of body composition (your ratio of muscle-to-fat) will significantly influence how your body responds to what you eat. It’s not fair, but very lean people can “get away” with eating more carbs and treats, whereas those with more weight to lose don’t have as much room to slip up in the amounts that they eat.

“From the whole time it happened, the moment I found her, to the hospital, to now, Lindy’s never freaked out, never panicked. She was always good. She’s been kind and pleasant and positive and hopeful as you could ever want someone to be. She has bad days and bad times like anyone, but every day she works really hard, she’s good to whoever’s helping her, she’s nice to all her doctors and therapists and nurses. She does what they say and tries to do anything she can. She tries to help other people who have her injury. She tries to make the absolute best of it which for me and everybody else around her makes it doable.”

Why You Can't Bench Press More Weight

When you lower the weight, your chest is not the center of support. The muscles in your back are really the base for this part of the movement. That’s why during the down stroke you want to squeeze your shoulder blades together and keep them locked and tight to create as much tension as possible. More important, it’s why you want to build a bigger, stronger back.

Get That: Back Valley

You've gotten the memo—do your pull-ups for a bigger back. Let's revise that a little bit: Those pull-ups you've been doing have given you a wider back, but what about adding some thickness, detail and (most importantly) functionality to your new muscle? The "back valley" will add a third dimension to your back, which along with your "wings" will make this important muscle group more complete.

3 Tips to Save Your Spine

3. STRETCH YOUR HIPS We know you hate  stretching. Suck it up. There’s no better way to prevent back pain. Here’s why: The hip flexors are muscles on the front of your hips that raise your legs; sitting at a desk for long periods makes them tighten up and lose range of motion. Since the hip flexors run from the top of the thigh bone back to the bottom of your spine, their tightening pulls on the spine, increasing the arch in your lower back and putting pressure on it. To stretch your hips, get into a lunge position on the floor and tuck your tailbone. Squeeze the glute on your rear leg and push your hips forward until you feel a stretch on the front of your hip on the trailing leg. Hold for at least 30 seconds, switch sides, and repeat for three sets each side.

Here's How to Train Your Feet to Lift Bigger and Run Faster

You already work out your arms, legs, chest, etc.—but there’s a body part you’ve almost certainly missed in your training, and it’s one of the most important of all: your feet. In almost any activity you do, your feet are your foundation. They provide the balance and support for nearly all movement, so any lack of mobility and strength in your feet can compromise your ability to run, jump, lift, and even walk efficiently and pain-free. Start treating your feet like all your other muscle groups and build a bedrock of strength, agility, and performance.

Floyd Mayweather Wants to Help Ronda Rousey Become a Better Boxer

Mayweather was even gracious enough to offer to help Rousey improve her pugilistic skills, "If you need help as far as boxing, I'm here to help you. It's all about timing and inches. Her ground game is unbelievable. She'll be OK." Rousey lost to Holm when she opted to try and out-strike the best striker in women's MMA, with disastrous results. Mayweather, who retired with a 49-0 record in September, could never be accused of falling into that trap. He always fought to his own strengths and never fell into the trap of employing tactics that played right into the hands of his opponent.

Alex Went From Overweight Teen To Ripped Adult!

A lot of my continued motivation came from my accomplishments. I felt so good every time I completed a goal, whether it was to lose weight or build muscle. My motivation also stemmed from how good I felt after the gym, even when I was less than excited about the exercise I was about to do. One of my friends taught me a trick for making even exercises you hate to do enjoyable. It sounds funny, but every time you do that exercise, just tell yourself that you love it and keep repeating that! It's all about positive mindset.

Endurance Athletes Burn Twice as Much Fat on Low-Carb Diets

By measuring gas exchange repeatedly during the treadmill test, the researchers determined the athletes’ maximum oxygen intake to, in turn, measure their carb- and fat-burning rates. On average, the two groups didn’t really differ in how much oxygen they consumed or how much energy they exerted, but fat-burning rates during prolonged exercise were about twice as high in low-carb athletes than high-carb athletes (1.5 versus .67 grams per minute, respectively). And the average contribution of fat as fuel during the long-distance run was 88 percent and 56 percent, respectively.
