At The Underground Strength Gym, you will NOT find a pretty gym with fancy equipment, air conditioning and flashy gimmicks. We’re NOT about gimmicks or the latest fad. We’re not about trying to impress with you fancy buzz words like “core strength”, “functional training”, etc.

Death to Strength Standards! | T Nation

The toughest pill to swallow if you're a non-competitive lifter looking to last the test of time is this: Beyond a certain point, your strength PR's are a hobby. There's nothing riding on you pulling 600 or squatting 525, and there's no added benefit to any component of your health in achieving these numbers, compared to your old PR's of say, 300 or 400 pounds.

Tip: Play the Long Game | T Nation

So, it may suck to hear because immediate gratification feels nice and short-term thinking is a lot easier than long-term planning. But you know what's more motivating than watching some jacked, internet-famous 22-year old training hard in the gym? Being a jacked 62-year old training hard in the gym.

Tip: Eating Crap For 2 Weeks Won't Affect You | T Nation

Maybe you're one of these orthorexic fitness people. If you are, I offer you this new study out of the University of Quebec. It suggests that dietary pratfalls, even big-time ones lasting two weeks and comprised of nothing but meals from McDonald's, have little negative effect on your health or body composition as long as you keep on exercising.

Tip: Look Worse to Look Better | T Nation

If you want to pack on a considerable amount of size then you need a sustained calorie surplus – eating above your maintenance level of intake. With this comes an increase in scale weight, muscle mass, and a little fat. There's no avoiding it. After the newbie gains have run their course you simply can't add slabs of muscle without some fat gain.

10 Lessons from the Strength Legends | T Nation

As important as it is for beginners to stick to strength and master basic movement patterns, there comes a time when everyone needs to make a change in their training. For fat loss, the most effective exercises are often the exercises you're least efficient at. In other words, whatever sucks the most will generally yield better results.

Merry Christmas in Dominoes! 🎅🏻 (Christmas Card)

Merry Christmas! Share this Christmas card with someone you love! 💕 ► http://bit.ly/2BUEGVb This project spells out "Merry Christmas" in 7,000 dominoes and incorporates various Christmas-related objects including ornaments, Santa, a mistletoe, and Christmas lights :) Watch my other Christmas domino specials here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jn0dm... For a while I've wanted to try building large fancy font freehanded out of dominoes, so I decided to build "Merry Christmas" in cursive :) I wanted to test my skills in recreating an image out of dominoes by eyeing it. Lettering is always a challenge to build in dominoes based off a picture because you have to be extremely precise to make the font look right (here's the original picture: http://bit.ly/2DylugC ). Lots of proportions, measuring, and eye-balling were needed for this project. It was also a challenge to figure out how to get this to topple sequentially by letter, since everything was connected in cursive (however, sometimes not in the direction it needed to topple). I had to tape down a few one way dominoes to ensure that the path would keep going in the right direction.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, December 10, 2017

Sunday, December 10, 2017 - You are stuck between your good intentions and inescapable circumstances. You can see a solution to a situation that continues to hold you back, but your awareness doesn’t necessarily change anything. You must take action now, even if you are unsure of how others will react. But your willingness to slip into unrealistic fantasies can bring down the entire castle built on unstable sand. Rein in your dreams today; you can always explore them again tomorrow. Practical steps guarantee practical results.

Tip: A Classic Technique for Strength and Power | T Nation

Concentric training is basically when you start an exercise from the bottom instead of the top. For example, you begin your squat from a dead-stop bottom position instead of starting by lowering the bar from the standing position. This is typically done in a power rack off pins. (Remember, "concentric" just means the lifting portion of the movement. "Eccentric" usually means the lowering portion or negative.)

"Best Damn Workout" For Strength Building?

Same thing with strength.If you have lot of muscle mass but you are not good at making it work (muscle fiber recruitment), do quality and productive work (fiber firing rate) and work together (inter and intramuscular coordination) you will not be able to produce a lot of strength. That is the job of the nervous system to make the best use of your muscles.

Plazma™ Brutal Workout Formula for Enhanced Growth & Recovery - Biotest

Intrigued by this effect, Tim starts thinking about how else he might use the formula. He thinks to himself, "This thing is crazy because, during the most extreme physical demands, we have muscle pulling in nutrients as if it were a vacuum, and the effect completely revolutionizes sports performance. Let's see if we can get a similar effect with muscle growth and recovery. Whatever this is doing for endurance athletes, it should do substantially more for bodybuilders and power athletes."

How to Lose Weight: Why Sleep Can Make You Fat

However when they cut back on sleep, the amount of fat lost was cut in half—even though they were on the same diet. What’s more, they felt significantly hungrier, were less satisfied after meals, and lacked energy to exercise. Overall, those on a sleep-deprived diet experienced a 55 percent reduction in fat loss compared to their well-rested counterparts.
