We 'Mirin Vol. 133: 14 Bros With Beards

It's a well-researched fact that beards enhance the male physique. Here's our case study:

Leaky Gut: Food, Pain, and Digestion | T Nation

I didn't know if it was a gut-related systemic problem or an implant problem, so just in case, I went back to eating only "safe" foods, and scheduled an appointment with a plastic surgeon, wondering if she'd have to remove my lady lumps. Fortunately, she said that the girls were undamaged, but she suspected that I stretched the nerves in both nipples during the workout. So she advised me to take about 400 milligrams of ibuprofen a day for a few weeks.

The 4 Kinds of Steroid Users | T Nation

Today, the steroid issue has gray areas. Most men can go to a doctor and get a 'script for testosterone if their tests come back low. Are those men "steroid" users? Well, yeah, kinda. But they're just legally getting their T levels back up to normal because low T is a medical condition (male hypogonadism). If he took twice as much as needed though, yeah, we could call him a steroid user.

Tip: 5 Damn Good Reasons to Use This Spice | T Nation

Piperine, a constituent of black pepper, causes muscles to burn more glucose and fat during exercise. The study, reported in Nutrition & Metabolism earlier this year, was done on mice but there's good reason to think it would work the same way on us human types. The human equivalent of piperine for a 175-pound man would be about 40 mg, and you can get that much in about 1.3 grams of pepper (white or black).

Lean vs. Shredded: The Cold Hard Truth | T Nation

Getting shredded is one of the toughest things you'll do, but the rewards are completely worth it. It'll teach you a lot about yourself and the lessons you learn will carry over to all parts of your life. When you're in real shape, there's no better feeling. At least for the weird ones who thrive off pushing their body to places it doesn't want to go to.

Tip: The False-Grip Overhead Press | T Nation

Not everyone should overhead press a barbell. There are often postural restrictions, stability issues, or motor control deficits. But for those who are able to maintain a neutral spinal position, keep the rib cage from flaring, and have the mobility to press overhead without pain or dysfunction, then the false grip can be an extremely useful tool.

Tip: Stand Up While Training These Muscles | T Nation

The muscles in the lower back don't seem to care if you're sitting or standing while doing overhead presses. However, it matters a great deal to both the rectus abdominis (your six pack) and the obliques. Doing standing overhead presses with dumbbells where both arms work together activates the rectus abdominis muscles, while doing them standing and working one arm at a time makes the obliques work harder.

Tip: Walk This Way to Burn More Fat | T Nation

Another study looked at how the brain activates in response to walking in an urban setting as compared to walking in the woods. They found that the areas of the brain most commonly associated with depression and anxiety showed significantly less neural activity in the woods than in the city. A nature walk seems to be a stress buster.

Tip: Follow the Polyphenol Diet, Become Immortal | T Nation

There's probably more than just a few of you who, in a fit of pique, want to say the hell with it all and just eat Milk Duds until they kill you and then leave instructions to be buried under a huge headstone shaped like a hand giving the finger. That's understandable.

Tip: The Vitamin Problem That Kills Your Boner | T Nation

Erectile dysfunction has many causes, but here's one that you don't hear much about. Sorry, vegans, this is especially bad news for you.

Tip: For Strength, Simplify Your Workout | T Nation

Pick the lifts you want to get good at and work from a standpoint of being a minimalist when it comes to exercise selection. If your strength stagnates and your technique is pretty solid, then ask yourself if you've been doing too many variations – or too many exercises in general – during training.

Tip: HIIT It or Quit It? | T Nation

Several studies have shown that HIIT results in only slightly more EPOC than continuous cardio, and there's really no advantage either way in terms of EPOC or fat metabolism following training. The fact is that either training style will have positive results in these areas, and it doesn't much matter which style you choose. (Of course, HIIT may be a better option if you're short on time.)

SciVation Xtend Go at - Best Prices on Xtend Go!

Recently I've made a lifestyle change and I was looking for a better alternative to rockstar energy drinks that I was consuming every day; it got pretty bad. I actually first sampled this product at gnc and loved it and bought 4 of these the next day from bodybuilding. I love that I can drink this throughout the day and continuously get the energy I need and still consume 7g of BCAAs. Overall I probably consume one scoop with about 140 ounces of water throughout the day. Definitely helps with water intake if you're looking to add some taste to water and not get that huge rush of drinking 200mg of caffeine at once. It's definitely helped me maintain my focus and it's nice that it contains some added glutamine as a plus. I will definitely continue to use this product.

MusclePharm Wreckage at - Best Prices on Wreckage!

This is by far my favorite pre-workout to date. I’ve used many & they were beginning to seem like I had simply bought nothing more than snake oil. Wreckage however is legitimately backed by science & they spared no expense on the patented ingredients they used in their forumation. The cardiovascular stamina, the muscular endurance and especially the pumps/vascularity I received just in my warm up alone was like nothing I’ve ever felt before, and the pumps stay with you ALL DAY LONG!! Definitely More intense workouts & much faster recovery in-between sets as well. Not only does it perform to expectations and beyond but sour candy is ridiculously delicious. Definitely the best Pre on the market right now, and very much so worth the wait!!

Tip: The Safe Way to Bench on a Smith Machine | T Nation

I don't always program Smith machine presses, but when I do I use a false grip. If you're accustomed to using it for the press, or want to take a walk on the wild side of highly non-functional training (I kid, I kid) the Smith machine can give you one hell of a contraction for the pecs and shoulders... but only when setup, bench angle, and form are right.

Tip: The Missing Trap-Building Exercises | T Nation

That doesn't mean you have to go full bore and compete. It doesn't even mean you need to learn and perfect every single variation of the lifts. But adding a few athletic barbell movements into your program will light up the fast twitch fibers of the traps. Instead of only relying on shrug variations, use the following explosive exercises as staples for trap development:

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, October 29, 2017

Sunday, October 29, 2017 - You’re happy to hang out with your friends today, expecting to share adventures wherever you may roam. However, it might be difficult to get along with others if your agenda differs from theirs. At first, you remain quiet since you don’t want your preferences to hijack the fun. But a minor annoyance can quickly build into resentment now, triggering an emotional outburst as you try to set things straight. Don’t wait for your feelings to take over; discuss a possible compromise as a proactive measure. Mythologist Joseph Campbell wrote, “Regrets are illuminations come too late.”

Reflecting on Strong(er) Business: elitefts Fitness Professionals Summit

It was a great presentation to close off with because quality service and attention is what elitefts provides to everyone. When I signed up for the event, I knew it was going to be top-notch — not only the event but also the social interaction afterward. As good as the information provided at these events is, most of the best moments come in the hallways and social gatherings. I missed the social event during the Sports Performance Summit in February and made sure I would not do that again.

It'sssss SHOWTIME!! NPC Shawn Ray Hawaiian Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii and The BIGGEST SHOW OF THE YEAR! At The Modern Honolulu Hotel!

11 times Dolph Lundgren broke Instagram with his knockout workouts

Walking, or running in the sand is great for your legs and your whole body. Why do you think the Brazilians have those tight, muscular bodies? If you don't have a beach near, try to walk somewhere with a soft surface, like a football field, or a park. Hard surfaces take a toll on your joints. The softer the surface and the thinner the shoes, the better. Your bare feet making contact with the earth has a healing quality. Plus the view and the fresh air... you can't beat it! They say that mailmen have a longer life span than most. They walk everyday, pretty far, at a normal pace, up and down stairs and get plenty of fresh air. Photo: @danielsaxlidphotography

10 Worst Bench Press Mistakes

Another common mistake is when people put their feet on the bench to “target their core.” The bench press is a strength exercise, not a core exercise — if you want to build a strong and massive upper-body, focus on lifting more weight with the bench press, not sculpting your abs. If you want to engage your core while sculpting your chest, try a Spiderman Pushup instead.

Indigo-3G® Controls Carbs to Build Muscle - Biotest

Obesity is a major risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes, and both conditions are now recognized to possess significant inflammatory components underlying their pathophysiologies. Here, we hypothesized that cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G), a typical anthocyanin reported to possess potent anti-inflammatory properties, would ameliorate obesity-associated inflammation and metabolic disorders, such as insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis in mouse models of diabesity. Male C57BL/6J obese mice fed a high-fat diet for 12 weeks and genetically diabetic db/db mice at an age of 6 weeks received dietary C3G supplementation (0.2%) for 5 weeks. We found that dietary C3G lowered fasting glucose levels and markedly improved the insulin sensitivity in both high-fat diet fed and db/db mice as compared with unsupplemented controls. White adipose tissue messenger RNA levels and serum concentrations of inflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin-6, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1) were reduced by C3G, as did macrophage infiltration in adipose tissue. Concomitantly, hepatic triglyceride content and steatosis were alleviated by C3G.
