FD Fat Loss By Mind Power (Fitness)

“Before reading Pauline Nordin’s Fighter Diet blog and subsequently purchasing e-books (I currently have FDX2, Fat loss By Mind Power, Fighter Diet Concept, I thought I knew enough about exercise and nutrition to sculpt the body I wanted. I didn’t realize I was so bogged down with “broscience” from fitness and health websites, personal trainers, magazines etc, that I was relying solely on my genes to stay a small size (not yet realizing I was the dreaded skinny-fat body type!) and not pushing myself hard enough to MAKE my body change. I had lots of rationalizations as to why my body wasn’t changing but didn’t realize they were just excuses; not enough time to work out or prepare healthy food, too tired, too stressed, too sore from yesterday’s workout blah blah blah.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Tuesday, November 18, 2014 - You are standing at a turning point and the circumstances that were holding you back just last week now begin to fade into the past. Your enthusiasm is on the rise but it's not realistic to think that everything will automatically shift overnight. Nevertheless, you can feel strong winds of change blowing into your life and extra patience is necessary as you move through the current transformation. Have faith; the waiting is the hardest part.

Master the L-Sit to Get Stronger and Shredded

The L-sit hold is a deceptively brutal exercise with benefits that go beyond merely the visual. Not only will this exercise help fill out your sleeves and chisel your abs , it will improve the health of your shoulders, help you with your deadlift, and build functional core strength as well. How do you do it? The L-sit hold is best done on a pair of parallettes. They look like a tiny version of parallel bars (hence the name) you’d find in a gymnasium or outdoor park. Most CrossFit gyms will have a few of them lying around, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one in a commercial gym. However, nearly every gym has dip bars, and you can even do L-sits on a pair of pushup bars, on kettlebells, yoga blocks, or even on a pair of benches. You just need two sturdy and secure platforms of the same height that will lift your butt off the ground when you lock your arms pushing down in between them.

3 Best Exercises for Building Badass Wings

Wide-Grip Pull-Up: This old-school exercise has been used for generations by some of the biggest, baddest men around. Wide-grip pull-ups are one of the best back exercises you can do, and they hit the lats especially hard. Grip the pull-up bar with an extra wide grip and hands pronated (palms facing out). As you do your pull-up, keep your elbows flared out, so you minimize biceps involvement and maximize lat activation.

Maybe you've been working out forever. You've got your routines down, and at this point it's just getting it in and getting out. But at some point boredom is inevitable and change is needed.

Master the Windshield Wiper for Amazing Abs

Hang from a pull-up bar and raise your legs until they’re perpendicular to the floor while keeping your torso parallel to the floor. (You’ll make an L shape with your body.) This will require you to pull your body closer to the bar, bending your elbows and contracting your upper back. Rotate your legs side to side. You can make the move easier by bending your knees. Add the workout below to your training to build up to doing the full hanging windshield wiper.

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.

Three Tools for Tricking Out Your Smartphone's Camera

Your smartphone’s camera is good enough for Instagram, Snapchat, and even some very high-quality editing—after all, last year we used Nokia’s 41-megapixel Lumia 1020 model to shoot a special Men’s Fitness cover with Super Bowl–winning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson . But you’d be amazed by what your smartphone can do with the extra photographic punch packed into a new, high-quality lens appendage. Or, if you really want mega-quality from your megapixels, try a standard camera. Yes, they still exist!

King T.U.T. Shoulder Workout

In this particular shoulder workout, we put time-under-tension dumbbell presses at the end of the workout. Doing so demolishes the ego and forces you to use light weight to ensure perfect form. You’ll be sore as hell, but you’ll start growing fast.

"Quadzilla" Paul DeMayo

Anyone who was following bodybuilding in the ’90s remembers the ground-shaking impact Paul DeMayo made. But they probably forget he did so entirely as an amateur. The Massachusetts native rocketed to prominence in 1991, beating Kevin Levrone to win the Jr. Nationals (at 23) and then finishing third behind Levrone and Flex Wheeler at that year’s Nationals (ahead of Ronnie Coleman and Chris Cormier). It took him three more tries (and years) to secure pro status, but DeMayo’s legend, like his physique, grew. In winning the 1994 NPC Nationals, the 27-year-old was 255 lean pounds at 5'10". He had enough size to hang with anyone.

Stronger in 60 Seconds: Wrists and Forearms

To take your shoulders out of play, lean your forearms on something solid. The spotter bars of a power rack are perfect for this purpose. Set one side at chest height, stand outside the rack, and raise and lower the weight with your hands inside. Because your arms are supported, you’ll also be able to focus heavier loads on your forearms.

Workshop -Los Angeles -

“In the past year I have been to 5 training seminars.  I can say with 100% honesty that Tony and Dean surpassed the others by epic proportions!  I learn more in 2  days with Tony and Dean than anywhere else, but what surprised me even more was what I learned from the others attending the workshop.  This seminar changed me as a trainer in the best possible way.  If you want to be great, you have to surround yourself with greatness, and that’s exactly what this seminar brought to the table.  Hands-down the best seminar I have been to.  Don’t miss an opportunity like this!!!!”

Torso Sculpting Circuit Workout

The cornerstone of this routine, which consist of mostly familiar moves, is the hand-to-thigh plank. This exercise is performed by positioning your hands and feet at shoulder width apart, arms at full extension, just as you would in the top of a push-up. While keeping your body straight and core tight, you will bring one arm at a time into slap your same-side thigh. Alternate hand slaps on each side being careful not to sway or drop your hips.

MY GOAL: I Can't Do a Pull-up But I Want To

Start by doing iso-eccentric pull-ups. Grab onto a bar and jump up so your chest touches it. Try to hold that position for five seconds. If you can, take five seconds to lower yourself back down. (If you can't, keep working at the hold until you can.) If you can lower yourself with control, perform another rep. When you can bang out 10 reps in this fashion, you'll be able to do atleast one regular pull-up.

One-Dimensional Attack

“One” has a bad rep. “One-dimensional.” “One-sided.” “One-trick pony.” We’re constantly told that “one” lacks depth and that “two” is twice as good as its fellow integer.

6 Moves for Stronger Knees

Get into a pushup position with a roller at the base of your ankles. Turn your toe in towards the midline of your body in order to expose the muscles of the shin and address them. Press your shins firmly down on the roller and gradually inch up towards your knee. You completely control the pressure in this movement. For more intensity really lay your body weight into the foam, for less ease back on the throttle. I like trying to move my foot up and down during the rolling and search for hot spots. 45 seconds to a minute on each leg should suffice and free up those important lower leg muscles.

When it comes to training, Mehmet Edip will do almost anything to get bigger and more shredded.

(And if you don’t know what any of that is, keep reading M&F—we’ll get to it.) “Pyramid sets, where you increase weight as you lower reps, are the most beneficial,” Edip says, “because they increase strength and keep you lean.”

the key variables involved in getting results.

Double-Duty Supplement

Since weight training also has been shown to increase GH levels, scientists from Baylor University (Waco, Texas) designed an experiment to test the combination of melatonin supplements and weight training on GH levels. Sixty active, college-aged men and women were assigned to receive either melatonin or a placebo one hour before a workout. Blood tests were taken a few times before the exercise session. The subjects performed seven sets of high-intensity leg presses to stimulate natural GH release. The results showed that even before the workout began, the men receiving the high-dose melatonin supplement (5 mg) had elevated GH levels. After the training session, men in the low-dose (0.5 mg) and the high-dose (5 mg) groups had elevated GH levels when compared to the placebo group.

4 Killer Moves for Bigger Quads

The barbell step-up is a great exercise for overall leg development and especially the quadriceps. To perform this lift, set up a box, bench or stack of plates to a height of 18-24”. Put a loaded Barbell on your back and step up with your right foot. Place the right foot on the bench. Stand up on the bench by extending your hip and knee of your right leg and place left foot on bench. Step down with the left leg by flexing your hip and knee on your right leg. Return to original standing position. Start the next step up with your left leg, switching between right and left between each rep. Do 6-10 reps on each leg (for a total of 12-20 reps) for 3-5 sets.

7 Advantages of Dumbbell Training

Let’s lose the mindset of waving around three-pound dumbbells, shaking your keister to some dance music and calling that serious training. Dumbbell training has many advantages over barbell training. The great Benjamin Franklin, in letters to his son, wrote that, “I live temperately, drink no wine, and use daily the exercise of the dumbbell.” Serious strength and mass goals can be achieved by training with dumbbells. I will even say that to fully maximize strength and hypertrophy , dumbbell training must play at least a partial role in one’s training regimen. Let’s take a look at seven advantages dumbbells have over the almighty barbell.
