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.

8 Ways To Squat More At Your Next Workout

Whether you're out to add muscle or gain pure strength, IFBB Pro Santi Aragon has some good advice on how to get, and grow, the perfect squat.

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: 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: 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.

Expert Advice for the Over-40 Lifter | T Nation

Recovery isn't something that happens in the blink of an eye like it does with a teenage or early-twenties body. Compiling age, stress, and the odd injury, you have a much greater need to take recovery more seriously and to train just as hard but smarter for your age and mileage. And if I'm feeling this at 30, I can imagine it'll be even more apparent at 40.

The 10 best workout challenges to put your body to the test

Let's put whatever workout routines you're following to the side right now—it's time for a challenge or break from the typical grind. These one-off workouts will test your muscular strength and endurance, and push you past pain thresholds. Sound a little too intense? That's OK. Take on each workout at your pace, focus on your form, and gradually make progress. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or workout-lunatic we're got a challenge to fit your abilities.

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.)

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.”

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.

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.

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: The Ultimate Shoulder Warm-Up | T Nation

Banded shoulder dislocates with an added "wrap around" are a great way to get the feel of your lats for deadlifts, pull-ups and Olympic lifts. They're also a good general warm-up for your shoulders. The reverse variation is a great way to get some pec work in, especially if you don't have any access to a cable machine.

Ric Flair is the Star of ESPN's Next '30 For 30'

The genesis of  Nature Boy  came when director Rory Karpf interviewed Flair about sports villains for the  30 for 30  episode  I Hate Christian Laettner  (about the now-infamous college basketball player). Karpf says, “It’s been a personally rewarding experience to tell the story of arguably the greatest wrestler of all time. Ric’s story transcends the wrestling business, and my hope is that it will appeal to wrestling and non-wrestling fans alike.”

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).

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.

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.

How to get monster shoulders

Do it: Hold a dumbbell in each hand and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your lower back in its natural arch, bend at the hips so the weights lower to just above your knees. Explosively extend your hips and knees and "shrug," powerfully pulling the weights up to chest level. Then flip your wrists over so that the momentum carries the dumbbells to shoulder level. Press the weights overhead. (You should finish in the starting position of a shoulder press.) Try these as your main lift of the day, and do two to four sets of five to eight reps.

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.

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!!
