Scott Mathison's 240-Rep Bodyweight Challenge

Your abs have actually gotten a lot of work over the course of everything you've done so far, but you're going to focus squarely on them in this final workout. I like to perform these so my knees go all the way up to my armpits, alternating sides. Stay in a dead hang, and keep your torso as high as possible. Don't swing or use momentum. Sure, that will make each rep harder, but that's the point. No matter how tired you are, don't cheat. Use the full range of motion. If you have to stop and start again, do it.

10 Nutrition Myths Debunked

Most of us are probably familiar by now with the term "net carbs." It was popularized by food companies during the Atkins craze to describe the total amount of carbs in a food after the quantity of fiber and sugar alcohols have been removed. The concept behind this is that not all carbs are equal in the way they affect the body (see Myth 5). Fiber and sugar alcohols are thought to have a minimal impact on blood sugar levels and are therefore subtracted from the total number of carbohydrates.

The Single Best Fat Loss Tip | T Nation

They're great at temporarily controlling your appetite. I'm sure someone is going to pipe up referencing some study about artificial sweeteners and insulin, but there was a year-long study done that showed those who used diet drinks in conjunction with their diet lost more weight than those who just drank water. I had Diet Sunkist all the way up to my bodybuilding show and was in the low single-digit body fat range. Somehow it didn't impede my fat loss. Shocker. Zero calories didn't hurt the fat loss. Go figure.

How Not to Go Bald | T Nation

If you're genetically susceptible to hair loss, there's no easy 1-2 punch in preventing it. However, it's quite possible to reverse or maintain your current levels of hair by employing a "cocktail" of ingredients. Many popular shampoos and other topical products contain many of the following ingredients. As a good rule, though, be sure to use a few of them.

Tip: Lighten Up on Glute Exercises | T Nation

A 405-pound hip thrust for 5 reps can't help you develop that muscle group if you already have an issue engaging the glutes... and most people do. Are your glutes really that strong or are your quads, hams, and low back really doing most of the work?

Human Growth Hormone: Everything You Need to Know About HGH

The body naturally produces growth hormone (HGH or simply GH) in the pituitary gland, and, as its name implies, it is responsible for cell growth and regeneration. Increasing muscle mass and bone density are impossible without GH, but it also plays a major role in maintaining the health of all human tissue, including that of the brain and other vital organs. When secreted, GH remains active in the bloodstream for only a few minutes, but this is enough time for the liver to convert it into growth factors, the most crucial of which is insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF-1, which boasts a host of anabolic properties. Scientists began to harvest GH from the pituitary glands of cadavers in the 1950s, but didn’t synthesize the first HGH in laboratories until 1981, with its use as a performance-enhancing drug becoming popular shortly thereafter.

6 Muscle-Building Myths: Debunked! | T Nation

The science, noted above, tells us that the more fat and the less muscle you have, the greater your ability to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. This doesn't mean you should go get fat. It just means your biology is working in your favor when you want to pack more muscle on, but have some fat to lose.

Tip: Build Biceps with an Empty Bar | T Nation

Most guys that struggle with biceps growth use really heavy weights and a lot of momentum to curl. Then they do reps in the low ranges and, ultimately, the biceps really don't end up doing a lot of work or getting a lot of tension. The upper back helps with the initial cheat to start the curl, then the negative portion of the rep is basically just the barbell dropping back down.

Tip: The Bacteria That Builds Muscle | T Nation

We know that fostering the proper types of bacteria in your gut can quell inflammation and lead to better health in general, but now there's mind-blowing evidence that suggests the right gut bacteria might help you grow muscle and build endurance.

The 8 Best Exercises (You’re Not Doing)

Legs: Drive through your heels, extending your hips and knees simultaneously until you’re standing erect with the bar, exhaling at the top of the motion. At this point, the bar should be just under your glutes. The barbell hack squat is very similar to the deadlift in that it’s a pressing move for the legs. Again, if you try to pull the weight up with your upper body without concentrating on the legs, you’ll defeat the purpose of the exercise, not to mention risk injury. Remember to squeeze the quads, hams and glutes at the top as you catch your breath. Use pulling straps, since the amount of weight you can press with your legs will probably exceed how much weight you can hold in your hands.

Tip: The Leaning Lunge for a Stronger Butt | T Nation

Standard lunge form doesn't hit your glutes and hams much, and it can cause knee issues. Here's how to do it right.

8 Great Foods to Eat Before and After Your Workout

Before you hit the ground running, fueling your body will be the foundation to any successful workout. It’s any lifter’s worst session when they hit the wall – glycogen stores depleted and muscles starved for nutrients. To be on top of your lifting game, you have to feed your body with the right foods both pre – and post-workout.

Tip: Do This BEFORE You Curl | T Nation

It stimulates muscle growth via an accumulation of growth factors and mTOR activation, but there's very little, if any, muscle damage. So you can (and should) do this type of biceps work multiple times during the week. Think 3-4 days a week. This will allow you to become even better at recruiting the biceps.

Tip: Improve Your Deadlift with Jefferson Curls | T Nation

If you have trouble locking out the deadlift, it could be a low back problem. Here's how to strengthen every portion of that weak link.

The top fantasy football risers and fallers for week 16

Returning from a four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs, 26-year-old Alshon Jeffery was quieted for the most part before coming alive right at the end. With the red-hot Green Bay Packers in town, Bears quarterback Matt Barkley targeted Jeffery just once through the first three quarters. As Chicago pulled off a furious comeback in the fourth, however, the Pro Bowl wideout was at the forefront. Jeffery was targeted eight times in the fourth, making six catches for 89 yards and a touchdown. Making those who trusted him with their playoff fortunes sweat, he wound up having a solid return game. With the Washington Redskins traveling to Soldier Field for a Christmas Eve matchup, Jeffery figures to be a strong play for any fantasy football managers that feature him on their squads. With a quarterback that isn't afraid of throwing the football, trust Jeffery to make some plays on Saturday.

Tip: Adiponectin and Muscle Growth | T Nation

Granted, this is only one study, and a study done with mice to boot, but if scientists can confirm their findings, and these finding extend to humans, it adds a new chapter to our understanding of muscle growth and possibly furthers our understanding of the effects of C3G and other adipokine-modulating compounds.

We Asked 20 Women: What's the worst thing a guy can do after sex?

You can cross the threshold from 'genuine gentleman' to 'certifiable jerk' real quick in a woman's mind when all the getting-to-know-you courtesy is swept aside and you start sleeping together. So, do yourself (and women!) a favor and stop these awful post-sex habits. They're killing your game and drastically cutting your odds of sleeping with her again.

What is the best holiday workout schedule?

The holiday season can be awfully tough on the body. Not is the food a killer, but your schedule can be just as unforgiving. Taking in the extra calories, coupled with a series of missed workouts and you're 5 pounds heavier in a week. The best way to combat holiday weight gain: keep up with your fitness, no matter what. But, given the difficulty of scheduling, we're designed a "holiday workout schedule" to simplify it all. The goal is to workout five days. Three days will be spent in the gym lifting weights and two days can be done from home. The lifting days are built around big, compound exercises and done with extremely low (or no) rest periods. This will have the body using massive amount of calories. The at-home workouts are quick bodyweight circuits designed to rev your metabolism without needing to get to the gym to do it. All five workout should take approximately 30 minutes.

5 exercises you’re probably doing wrong

Commonly known as a lunge, the split squat is an amazing lower body exercise—when done correctly. “Many guys avoid or neglect the split squat due to knee pain, or ‘feeling’ more load in the front hip region, rather than the desired load of the lead leg,” Martin says.      Common mistakes: Many make the mistake of allowing their front knee to track forward over the toe, placing majority of the load on the ball of the front foot. “This can place extra unnecessary load on the patella and surrounding connective tissue,” Martin says, which can certainly irritate your knees. Another common issue is not allowing your back knee and ankle to bend. Think about it: If you're forcing your leg to stay straight, you're restricting movement and causing a chain reaction, which will travel up, hence the hip pain. "Guys also have a hard time staying balanced, which is indicative of weaknesses and muscle imbalances," Martin says. We say: All the more reason to master the split squat—unilateral moves expose and address these weak spots.   How to do it right: Setup 1.  Rather than setting up the split squat in a standing position, come down on your knees about hip-width apart.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 - There are so many details to manage this time of year that it's tempting to just surrender control and let someone else deal with all the facts and figures. The last thing you want to do is crunch numbers now, but you feel the tense pull between what you know must be done, and where your heart is calling you to go. Fortunately, the Moon's shift from analytical Virgo to affable Libra makes it easier to see things from a more peaceful perspective. Honest hearts produce honest actions.

Top 5 Traps Training Mistakes

Traps get no respect. They fit in with both shoulders and back, and therefore can be worked (and overworked) with either. Piggybacking with broader workouts, traps seldom get the honor of their own routines, and yet, your two trapezius muscles (left and right) are large, dramatic and complex, bracketing your delts and neck, and forming a kite on your upper back. By contrast, your biceps are puny and simple, but surely you have a bi routine and dote on every curl. Don’t shrug off trapezius training. Give it the respect it deserves by passing our traps test. Class is in session.

44 ways to get stronger now

Supple muscles move better and are more efficient. When you have knots and “tangled-up” muscle fibers, you can’t get as much strength or power out of them. You also may be more prone to injury, particularly when tight muscles inhibit your range of motion through a strength training exercise. Not only will foam rolling improve all of these aspects, it also aids in recovery, so you’ll be able to lift again sooner. And once you get over the initial, er, discomfort, it can feel pretty great. So take that 5 minutes at the end of your workout to target the most-often tight muscle groups: mid-back, glutes, hams, quads, and calves. Seriously—that’s one minute for the back, plus 30 seconds per side for each of the others. Done and done.

The Bench Press Controversy

The bench press remains a superior movement, and it may be so for you, but only if you learn these lessons, as I did. First, it’s not an ego exercise, so don’t use it to see how much you can bench; use it to build your pecs. Second, adapt the exercise to your body rather than vice versa — if you feel it more in your chest muscles when you’re on a flat bench, then that’s the position you should use; if you feel it more at a specific angle, use that angle. Third, control the movement so that you feel the pump build in your pecs, right where you want it. - FLEX

4 Secrets for More Strength

Although true research is sparse, both anatomical and biomechanical evidence supports the need for changing both hand and foot positions, as well as seat angles, on exercises throughout your training cycles. Also by creating these variations, support musculature (read: stabilizers) will improve as will your overall length and variety of muscle movement. More angles, more fibers, and longer ranges of motion, means greater strength. And one final thought; making simple adjustments adds tons of exercises to keep your workouts both challenging and stimulating, so it is less likely for you to overtrain and/or become bored.
