Eating for Abs: The Beach-Body Diet Handbook
Remember that the fats in your diet will come mainly by way of your protein foods, but you can have fattier fare such as avocados, nuts, nut butter, and cooking oils such as olive and coconut to make up the rest. Your carbohydrates should come mainly from white rice, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Why white rice over brown? The brown stuff contains compounds that can block the absorption of nutrients. “White rice has had its hull removed,” says Miyaki, “leaving only the starch, which is all your body needs to replenish the glucose stores that fuel your training.” It’s true that brown rice packs more vitamins and minerals, but that’s what vegetables are for. Your intake of green veggies should be high—there’s no limit on how many you’re allowed.
Going Isometric for Strength
Here is an easy way to add isometrics to your routine. After you get done with normal working sets of bench press, set up a bench in the squat rack with the pins 3-5 inches of your chest. Push the empty bar up into the pins as hard as you can for six seconds. Put the bar down and immediately go over to the bench press and do three reps of 65% of your max, making sure to move the bar as fast as you can, which further engages your growth-prone fast-twitch muscle fibers. Take a two-minute rest and repeat it for a total of four sets. Follow this with the rest of your chest assistance work for the day.
3 Ways to Torch Fat Without Traditional Cardio
The only feeling worse than realizing you’ve just inhaled two days’ worth of calories in one holiday meal is the panic that sinks in once you calculate what it’ll take to burn it all off. But don’t think jogging is the only way to go. While it’s true that raising your heart rate for prolonged periods increases calorie burn—which in turn promotes weight loss —there’s no set rule for how it has to be done.

The Gun Show Workout
You’ll finish the giant set with a high-rep flush on the overhead rope extension, which also targets the triceps’ long head. Using a slow, rhythmic style, the set should take at least 60 seconds to complete – ideally between 90 seconds and two minutes. Do not stop -- keep continuous tension on the triceps. Make sure you get a good stretch each rep to maximize muscle fatigue. This is a long range of motion move designed to enhance the size and appearance of your tri’s, so don’t cheat with partials. If you fail before 40 reps, turn around, set the pin to a lower weight and continue immediately.

The Fastest Protein-Packed Meal You Must Try
“Hunger is the best sauce in the world.” —Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra Without seeming disrespectful to the Don Quixote author, I have a slight tweak to his legendary quotation. “Post-workout hunger is the best sauce in the world.” —Paul Kita Whether you’re a runner, a swimmer, or a lifter, you know the feeling I’m talking about. It’s that eat-everything-in-the-fridge-while-standing-in-front-of-the-fridge urgency. It’s that ravenousness that clutches your stomach. It’s basic human instinct. During moments like those, you need a meal fast. You need a meal like this. Lemongrass Turkey Quinoa Bowl Recipe by Bill Kim, chef of bellyQ in Chicago What you’ll need: 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil ¼ cup thinly sliced onion 1 garlic clove, minced ½ lb. ground turkey breast 1 tsp curry powder 2 Tbsp finely chopped lemongrass ¼ cup Napa cabbage, chopped 1 Tbsp fish sauce Small handful cilantro, chopped 1 cup cooked quinoa ½ ripe avocado, sliced 1 sheet of nori, cut into four pieces How to make it: 1.

Top 10 Energy-Boosting Foods and Drinks
It's not easy getting eight hours of sleep per night. For those of us who are overstressed and sleep-deprived, there’s a healthy way—10 actually—to boosts energy and fuels workouts without the pending sugar crash that comes along with energy drinks. Lisa Moskovitz, R.D., founder of The NY Nutrition Group, shares 10 top energy-boosting foods that are probably already in your kitchen. 5 Weird Things that Make You Bloated>>>
The Get Lean for Life Diet
When you eat healthy foods, you don’t have to worry much about calories. In fact, in the early stages of your diet, we suggest you don’t focus on calories at all—it will only make you hate the process. Still, you need some measure of what you’re taking in so you don’t overeat—or undereat, which can slow your metabolism. You must estimate your portion sizes, which you can do with a wave of your hand. A three ounce serving of lean meat (your main source of protein on this plan) is about the size of your palm. A cup of starchy carbs, such as from potatoes or rice, is the size of your clenched fist, while a serving of fruit is one whole piece or one cup. A tablespoon of healthy fats from oils like olive or coconut is roughly the area of your thumbnail, and a serving of nuts or seeds amounts to a handful. Aim for about 10 total servings of protein .
Workout Routine for Big Forearms and a Crushing Grip
Sure you can do the standard wrist curls and extensions with heavy dumbbells or even a few sets of hammer curls. Or, you can do a few extra things and really see your forearms grow. First, check out clubbells. While most gyms do not have them, you can get yourself a couple different sizes and do some hammer extensions and flexions (known as abduction and adduction) as well as pronating and supinating your arm extended out from supports.
If your goal is to shorten your workout, do not sacrifice intensity for time. Make sure you get enough rest between sets. Intensity, after all, is the strength or power with which you resist the weight, and it has to be at or near its maximum for every set. Just as I never lollygag my way through a workout, neither am I concerned with rushing it. I don’t count seconds or minutes between sets, but I do rest just long enough to catch my breath so I can give a hearty effort on the next set. Now, I’ve reached a level of efficiency where I get an optimum workout in a very short amount of time.
Five Tips for Wearing Fall Accessories
We can’t stress enough how crucial details are when it comes to style. Small details don’t create your style - they accentuate it. Details put your style on turbo, and there’s no more effective way to elevate your style than by adding subtle accessories. We talked to Jon Patrick, vice president of product at custom men’s brand J. Hilburn, for some tips on how to accessorize better this fall.
4 Protein-Packed Oatmeal Recipes - Bodybuilding.com
Have you ever ordered an ice-cream-topped hot cookie at a restaurant? I have. This bowl of protein oatmeal reminded me of it—something about the combination of cocoa, cinnamon, and protein ice cream.

It's the perfect bowl of oatmeal for those of you who, like me, are serious about chocolate and spice!
5 Ways to Beat Workout Soreness
Lifting weights damages muscle tissue—but that’s OK, because muscle damage as a result of resistance training contributes to hypertrophy (increase in muscle size) if the training is done properly. When muscle tissue is damaged, you may feel soreness within the next couple of days. While there are many theories as to why delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) occurs, most research suggests that it's a result of pain receptors being sensitized by the inflammatory response to muscle tissue damage. Luckily, there are ways to quickly recover from DOMS and get right back into getting strong. Use these strategies immediately after your workout to speed up healing so you build muscle faster.
3 Ways to Get More Out of Your Blender
It's the era of the personal blender, which is especially great if you don't have space for another monstrous countertop appliance. Even better news: Vitamix just released a scaled-down version of its coveted do-it-all blender, and it's worth checking out. The Vitamix S30 comes with a 20-ounce container that doubles as a travel cup for convenient shakes on-the-go. It also comes with a 40-ounce container, making it easy to whip up healthy meals beyond your daily smoothie. From small batches of soup or sauce to frozen desserts, the possibilities are endless. Check out these three recipes to take your blender game to the next level.
5 Ways to Eat for Strength
You'd probably like to think that lifting big weight is simply a matter of big muscles —that if you have hulking lats, you can row a barbell loaded with clanking plates until next Thursday. However, if you're not fueling your body properly, you'll find out in a hurry just how shortsighted that philosophy is. You've probably heard the analogy before: your musculature is like a car—if you fuel it with junk, it'll perform like junk. That is absolutely true when it comes to training for strength . If you're looking to move the most weight possible, then you're going to have to make sure that your muscles are performing like they're running on jet fuel, not 87 octane from your discount, corner gas station. Here are five ways to make sure your body is firing on all cylinders each time you step up to the rack, bench or platform for a big lift.
8 Foods You Should Avoid
The foods you choose to fuel your body with must be harmonious with your training goals. Meaning, if you desire a body shaped like a sack of wet burritos, stuffing your face with fatty and processed foods would be a suitable pathway to achieving that ambitious objective. However, we’re guessing you’re after a more fit and muscular physique, eating healthy food is crucial.

Why National Men Make Dinner Day Is Ridiculous
But here’s my beef: It’s 2014, man has evolved in the kitchen (even beyond Betty Crocker!), and it’s time for this silly Internet holiday to go 404 Not Found. Men no longer need to be coaxed—or pushed—into the kitchen. Gradually, men are increasing the amount of time they spend cooking and cleaning up, according to the past 10 years of Bureau of Labor Statistics Time Use Surveys. Men now cook about eight meals a week at home and claim to enjoy doing it, according to a 2012 study from the University of Michigan. Fifty-seven percent of men reported that they “typically cook because” they “want to,” according to a 2014 Mintel survey. Women? Only 56 percent answered the same question the same way. And get this: The average college guy thinks about food 18 times per day—nearly the same number of times he thinks about sex, according to a 2011 study by researchers at The Ohio State University. Here on Guy Gourmet , and through the pages of Men’s Health , we’re delivering delicious recipes to men (and women) on a regular basis. Heck, we even wrote a damn cookbook —and there’s not a single “can of peas” joke among the 150-plus recipes.

Common Talks Food, Beards, and Wine Baths
The experience was super dope and everybody from the NBA entertainment branch, they treated me with a lot of love. We went in and I had been filming this television show earlier that day. I just went into the studio and it was a late night and they gave me some ideas of what they wanted and we just tried it out different ways. It was a high energy thing. But people know Common, they know me to be chill. But the energy is there and you can just feel that spirit and that life.

Intracellular Nutrition, Part 2
I’ve been a big advocate of this intra-workout movement and recommend you give it a try to break through a plateau or improve your training sessions. I advise people to be in appropriate condition, meaning 10% body fat or less when experimenting with heavier carb-laden mixtures, with more than 100 grams of carbohydrates. If you are above this body fat, stick to 25–50g carbs per workout. Amino acid amounts need to be in the 20–30g range to really make the most of each drink per workout.
Back Thrashing Pullup Workout
Once or twice a month, use this pullups-only routine to thrash your back and get growing again. For this workout, we’re suggesting an overhand grip, with your hands spaced just outside shoulder-width apart. Each time, choose a different variation such as underhand pullups (chin-ups), a narrower overhand grip or, if you have access to parallel bars, use a neutral grip. For a finishing act, raise your arms up parallel to the deck and contract your lats hard for 30 seconds. Try not to cramp up and be sure to stretch your lats thoroughly when it’s all said and done.
Having More Than 20 Sexual Partners Reduces Your Risk of Prostate Cancer
Those notches on your bedpost, or belt, or whatever you use to tally your sexual escapades will do more than earn you a high five from your guy friends and eye rolls from the ladies. Men who have slept with more than 20 women reduce their risk of prostate cancer by 28 percent, and their risk of growing aggressive tumors by 19 percent, according to research published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology .

Don’t Forget the Lunges—Train with Jump and Walking Lunges To Protect Your Hamstrings and Get Faster
Lunges are an excellent exercise to improve balance between the muscles in the lower body and avoid injury. Research shows that they also help develop sprint speed by providing the ideal ratio of muscle activation between two commonly unbalanced quad muscles. With an array of lunging options (front-foot elevated, forward, reverse, rear-foot elevated, jumping, static, and so on), it’s critical to train the right type to match your goals.
Don't Short Your Muscle Gains
Every bodybuilder has walked into the gym and seen that one idiot who’s loaded the machine with weights and is moving them about one inch. It should come as no surprise that these are the same people who don’t have a very good physique despite training.

Who's causing air pollution in your gym?

The concentrations of these substances generally exceeded most accepted standards for indoor air quality. (No government agency in the United States formally monitors air quality in gyms.)
Back on Track
In 2008, FLEX editors undertook a rather daunting task, journalistically speaking —they gathered to choose the 20 bodybuilders who, in their estimation, represented the best back development of all time. The list was stacked with greats, from Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates at the top of the heap to Melvin Anthony and Albert Beckles snagging the final two spots. You could argue vociferously for a favorite who didn’t make the list (and have a valid point), but all told, no one could debate the quality of the final 20. They were giants in a sport that boasts more than its fair share of larger-than-life physiques.
