4 Reasons Your Body Needs Hydrolyzed Protein

Protein hydrolysates, or hydrolyzed proteins, have been around for a while, but some lifters have questioned their efficacy. Here's what the science says, and 4 situations where hydrolysates can help you!

The Effects of Eating Truckloads of Protein | T Nation

You could argue that this data is still short term. Most lifters are eating high protein for years to decades. What about 6 months into their high protein eating plan? What happens to their kidneys then? Dr. Jose Antonio again in 2016 published a one year study. Yep, one year. In terms of scientific research, that's a freaking eternity.

Tip: The Best Juice to Drink for Prostate Health | T Nation

Problem is, you'd have to eat a whole crop of watermelons to get all the beneficial effects. Studies use watermelon juice, but that's not widely available and a pain in the butt to make. Straight lycopene supplements in pill form can help, but at least one study showed that they're not as beneficial as whole-food sources.

Tip: This Vitamin Flat-Out Builds Muscle | T Nation

We used to get plenty of it from fish, but the farm-raised varieties many of us are forced to eat contain less vitamin D than their wild cousins. There should be plenty of it in dairy, but vitamin D is fat-soluble and most of us eat no-fat or low-fat dairy products. That means the D was removed with the fat. Sure, manufacturers add it back before it goes to store shelves, but unless you ingest some fat with it, your body doesn't absorb the vitamin D.

Tip: Young vs. Old: Who Wins? | T Nation

The researchers found no real difference in recovery ability between the young men and the old. This doesn't necessarily mean you can throw caution to the wind and get back to your days of heavy 1 RMs, though. The study only looked at the 48-hour post-training window, which might not correlate with what a middle-aged man encounters over the duration of a full training cycle.

Tip: The Best Exercise for Hip Mobility & Strength | T Nation

The Zercher squat has long been used as a test of manhood and shear strength. Besides the obvious difficulty of holding the weight in the crevices of the elbows – forcing the lifter to use significantly more arm strength, scapular stability, and thoracic mobility – the Zercher squat places the weight at a significantly lower position than the back squat and even the front squat. The load puts more stress on the hips, similar to belted squats, and allows the lifter to be pulled into more hip flexion.

10 Rules for Building Muscle Without Getting Fat | T Nation

Building muscle without getting fat isn't complicated, but many lifters search endlessly for the best new method or secret. The truth is, there's no secret. The right method or tip can help, but the real way to get bigger, stronger, and leaner lies in sound principles performed with ruthless consistency.

Tip: The Number One Thing That Needs to Change | T Nation

The human body has a great capacity to adapt, but it still has limitations. And if you've been lifting for 20-plus years, you likely have some wear and tear across your body. You likely built plenty of scar tissue and you've also become less efficient at producing collagen which makes it harder to heal. Your body can't withstand the same type of stress that it could when you were younger and less experienced.

I don’t eat breakfast very often, but breakfast foods are one of my favorite things to eat. From eggs and chicken sausage, to waffles, pancakes, and french toast, it’s hard to go wrong with any morning meal favorite. The problem? Many carb loaded breakfast foods clock in at thousands of calories, and there’s nothing about them that would even come close to qualifying at healthy.

Bench Press Training - Paused or Touch & Go?

We all know we have to pause in competition, but how do you train the bench in the gym? I’ve talked to experienced competitors who say they always pause their bench reps because they want to make their training as much like competition as possible. However, I’ve talked to others who say they train touch & go in the gym, then knock off a few pounds at the meet to account for having to pause; some of these guys claim pausing all the time inhibits development of explosiveness.

Why Women Should Train Harder Than Men | T Nation

Women can perform – and benefit from – more work than men, relative to their 1RMs (one-rep maxes). This is due, at least in part, to a higher proportion of slow-twitch muscle fibers. To my male readers: If you take the workout of a strong woman and try to replicate it relative to your own 1RMs for each exercise, trust me, you don't stand a chance!
