6 Great Shoulder Savers

Take a lacrosse or tennis ball and position it between a wall and the back of your shoulder blade. From there, move. Keep the arm straight and it over your head (flexion), down (extension), towards the midline of the body (adduction), and out towards the wall (abduction). Fix the ball in place and see what kind of pain free range of motion you can muster. Get creative. You can even form a 90-degree angle in your elbow and internally and externally rotate the shoulder. After moving the joint through every manageable position, move the ball slightly and try it again. Search for hot spots, “floss” the areas that don’t feel great and get ready to feel and move better.

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.

10 Reasons to Dump Your Gym

Before deciding to get your membership, you had a look around the gym to see what kind of machinery and equipment they had. You didn’t join thinking you would never be able to use some of it. As soon as something breaks, the staff should take notice and take strides to get it fixed as soon as possible. Even if it isn’t a piece of equipment you usually use, or if there are other working machines, it reflects poorly on a gym if something is out of commission for more than a few days. “Nowadays, you can get parts over night and service people in a day or two,” trainer Mike Duffy says. “So if your treadmill is out for more than a week or your lat pull-down cable has been twisted around the weight stack for weeks it's time to look for a new gym.” Duffy goes on to say that this is often a sign of an apathetic gym owner or of a gym that simply cannot afford the repairs and may go under soon. Either way, it’s a sign to take your workouts elsewhere.

6 Fitness Tests You Should Be Able to Pass

Spring is finally here, which means all of you students out there have finals coming up. For most of your classmates, that means lounging around for as long as possible before a series of grueling all-nighters fueled by caffeinated drinks and thoroughly processed salty snacks . Don’t let yourself go down that road—use your time wisely (at least go about it better than your roommates do). And, of course, don’t let exercise fall by the wayside through all those sedentary hours of reading and writing. Take a study break to take our "fitness final exam," assembled with the help and recommendations of trainer Dan Trink of Trink Fitness.

This Is Where Fat Goes When You Lose Weight

When we talk about weight loss and fat burning we are talking about a specific type of fat — one that accumulates when we eat excess carbs and protein that our bodies don’t need to use at the moment. These excess macronutrients get converted into things called triglycerides, which are then stored in adipocytes (fat cells) in your body. If you are trying to lose weight, you are attempting to metabolize (use, burn, convert) those triglycerides. Essentially, they need to go through a process of chemical reactions in order to change into something else that is no longer fat. That is how fat loss works.

How Many Eggs Are Safe to Eat? - Born Fitness

While the whites still offer protein, it’s only slightly more than 50 percent of the total amount. The yolks are part of what give eggs the highest possible biological value, which is a measure of how well a food suits your body’s protein needs. So if you’re looking for the healthiest way to eat your eggs, your best bet is to keep the yolk. (The exception: Let’s say you’re on a “diet” and are counting macros or keeping fat lower, there’s no problem just eating a bunch of eat whites and saving calories. Sometimes I do it myself, but the reason isn’t to avoid the yolk or for health reasons; it’s to save calories. There’s a big difference.)

Don't bug them while they are trying to get their burn on, it's lousy gym etiquette . Check out The Rock in action:

20 Fittest Foods for Men

19) Olive Oil 119 calories per tbsp Eat 2 tbsp per day Olive oil is rich in good monounsaturated fat, making it an ideal food for heart health. In fact, studies show that replacing two tablespoons of saturated fat (found in butter and lard) with monounsaturated fat may reduce the risk of heart disease. But that's not the only reason to eat it. A study in the journal Nature reports that olive oil also has potent anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it can help reduce pain and swelling just like a dose of ibuprofen. In addition to cooking with olive oil and using it as a dressing for your salad, you can get even more in your diet by mixing a tablespoon or two into your daily protein shake.

Protein Almond Snack Balls - Born Fitness

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner always seem to be the easiest meals to figure out. (With lunch tending to be the most the difficult to keep “healthy.”) But for most people, especially those in the working world, finding healthy snacks is oftentimes a frustrating challenge. Whether it’s the deceptively unhealthy “100-calorie” packs, or offices providing fuel that tastes greats and leaves you feeling like crap a few hours later, it’s not easy to find what your body needs…and enjoys. Enter protein almond balls. This no-bake recipe, created by Liv Langdon , can be made quickly at home, stores easily at work, tastes great, and fuels your body with the type of nutrition you want and need during the day.

12 Moves To Power Up Your Workout

There’s no better population to test cutting edge supplements and training methods on than elite military soldiers since they’re required to have functional strength year-round. Today’s military personnel are bigger, stronger, and faster thanks to a revamped workout philosophy that stresses progression and overload instead of randomized “bootcamp” sessions. “Instead of overtraining with 8 or 10-mile runs multiple times per week, Physical Training is more about being able to accelerate, change direction, get up, get down, climb under, jump over, etc.,” says Captain Tony Soika, a tactical strength and conditioning coach and company commander for the U.S. Army. Build full-body strength and explosiveness with this military-inspired four-week training plan.

Food Fight: Tuna vs. Salmon

“Salmon may have more calories,” she says, “but for an active guy, that’s not so bad. For those extra 16 calories per serving, you get heart-healthy fats, nearly as much calcium as a glass of milk, and almost an entire daily dose of vitamin D, which is almost impossible to find in other foods—including tuna.”

The Truth About Cardio and Muscle

Assuming you’re eating sufficient calories to grow muscle , and performing only a moderate amount of endurance training (i.e., not training for a marathon), you should have no trouble gaining size with a lifting-meets-aerobics program. Aerobics will actually make you a more efficient lifter. A competitive powerlifter with a 475-pound bench press, Nuckols regularly incorporates steady-state training into his program: “It helps you increase your training density, volume, and frequency by aiding in recovery during your workouts and between your workouts. Being able to work harder and recover from more work is the simplest way to make more progress.”

Should I Have Sex With My Girlfriend at Her Parents’ House?

Assuming she’s cool with it and her parents won’t castrate you, go for it—as long as you do it quietly. Choose times of day—before you go to bed, before you’re out of bed in the morning—to make the act less conspicuous. Disappearing after lunch for a “nap” that turns into a liaison is a tacky move around her family. So: If the fam won’t freak and you can be discreet, then yes, you can have sex with your girlfriend at her parents’ house.

Simple & Effective Calf Training

Calves represent quite a dilemma for many when it comes to creating a complete and balanced physique. They are among the most difficult muscles to develop. In large part, this is because of the difference in calf structure among different individuals. Everyone'’s calf structure goes from the knee to the ankle, but in some cases the muscle itself (the "muscle belly"”) is very long and the tendon attaching it to the lower leg is short. Even a few inches of extra length can make a big difference in muscle volume, because muscle size is measured in volume -– three dimensions, not two. Anyone who has spent any time around boats knows that a 40-foot yacht is not just a little bit bigger than one that's 30 feet - it's MUCH BIGGER, because you're dealing with cubic volume, not just length. An individual with "“high"” calves is going to have much more trouble developing a lot of size than somebody whose calf is mostly muscle and very little tendon attachment. The same is true for forearms. But that doesn't mean the task is impossible. With high calves you may never develop the best lower leg on the planet -– or even just in your gym - but you can increase size and end up with a lot more development than you initially thought possible.

Kick-Start Your Metabolism: Part 1

In order to lose weight and put on lean muscle, the formula is pretty basic: Follow a healthy and balanced low-fat diet, rid your program of processed foods and preservatives, control your portions, and adhere to a solid workout program that includes both resistance and cardiovascular training. It sounds uncomplicated, and in most cases it is—as long as you stick to the program you’ll receive the desired results you’re looking to achieve. However, what do you do when your body and metabolism have had enough and your system shuts down, and no matter what diet you follow, no matter how long and hard you train—you simply can’t lose weight and all progress has halted?

4 Bodyweight Finishers

Since muscle failure is one of the keys to muscle growth , most lifters like to finish their workout with a few exercises that allow for higher reps. This technique can increase blood flow to target muscles, break down additional fibers and instigate protein synthesis. But after a while, the selections tend to grow stale: flyes on chest day, straight-arm pulldowns on back day, leg extensions for quads. Yawn. Why not spice up your playlist with some challenging bodyweight moves ? These exercises test your mettle and provide greater functional finish than you can find at the cable station.

Bodyweight Workouts For Fat Loss: Do They Work? - Born Fitness

By now, most of you know that high intensity interval training (the ever popular “HIIT”) is great for fat loss. But there are some rules for really making it work. You’ll read all about effective forms of HIIT lasting as short as 4 minutes (the Tabata method) and topping out around 15 minutes. The reasons being the workouts are effective because of the intensity and not the duration.

Take the Guesswork Out of Training

How many times have you caught yourself asking the question, “Which exercise should I do?” You get cranking on a good program, but still find yourself questioning why certain body parts just aren’t getting any better. You look around the gym and see a lot different exercises being performed and probably say to yourself, “Should I do that?” The better question should really be, “What am I trying to improve?” Exercises are created for a specific purpose, but when it comes to building size and getting razor-sharp cuts, that reason becomes even more important. Choosing the best exercise is difficult, since most exercises have variations and may activate more than one muscle or muscle group, making it difficult to pinpoint the true target. You also have to consider how to get all your body parts worked out inside of a week while ensuring that your overall goal is met.

The Ultimate Mud-Run Training Plan

What a DNA Test Taught Me About Diet and Exercise

I'm in the process now of incorporating all these changes and recommendations into my diet, and I’ve arranged for further testing on the whole celiac issue.

I’ve also just begun a low-carb eating plan.

Peaking the Biceps

Seven-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger built some of the most impressive biceps of all time using this routine. He’d perform it three times a week, but you can do it once or twice, depending on your own training split. Along with the routine below, Arnold shared a tip for creating massive peaked bi's: "Concentration curls are the single best exercise for maximizing the biceps' peak."

Breathe In, Breathe Fat Out

You’re breathing away those pounds, according to recent research published in the British Medical Journal . Ahhh, science.

Higher Biceps, Sweeping Triceps Workout

Now, the problem with the brachialis is that while doing most curling movements, it is a weak flexor of the upper arm. “So what do I do?” I’m glad you asked! What needs to be done is to put the biceps in a mechanically weak position when performing curling movements, so that the brachialis needs to be activated to a much greater degree. Like I said, most curling movements will not “get-er-done,” as it takes specific hand positions and/or curling angles to force the brachialis to take the brunt of the load.

100 Reps: The Forgotten Plateau Buster

As an example, 100 barbell squats can be potentially fatal, whereas 100 leg presses will only make you run for the bathroom. Ideally, you want to add a second workout for that particular muscle group within the week, which should be more in the realm of 6-12 reps.
