The Absolute Best Way to Build Quads | T Nation

Or maybe it's more simple than that. Maybe it's because high-rep quad work burns more than anything else. Most lifters would much rather pile on the plates and do single-digit reps. That hurts, but it's a different kind of pain and strain. But 20 reps of an exercise that targets the quads, taken to failure or close to it? That's some soul-grinding, hypertrophy-inducing pain.

5 Ways to Get Fired Up Again | T Nation

Stagnation is a signal from your body. It's telling you to change something. If you don't, what do you think will happen? Certainly not progress. We do need to push the envelope from time to time, but not all the time. The Olympics aren't held every week, all year round. They're once every four years. Have you ever considered looking at your own training with this kind of timeframe?

Your Secret Weapon For Muscle Gain And Fat Loss

Don't finish your next workout with the same old set of curls. If you're looking for a simple way to burn fat, add muscle, and boost your strength, just pick up the nearest heavy object and take a walk!

8 quick workouts to fight weight gain

These eight workouts are quickies. They’ll get you in and out of the gym in no time. But, you’ll still get your pump, still stimulate some growth, and still burn some fat. These routines will keep you in check.

Bench Press Without a Bench | T Nation

Got a sharp pain deep inside your shoulder? Trying to bench press anyway? It's common among lifters. And they'll keep the area irritated by continuing to bench. It's time to modify your pressing routine. How? By benching without a bench. Here are six floor press variations that'll allow you to go heavy, and more importantly, allow your shoulders to heal.

Tip: The Supplement That Makes You Smarter | T Nation

The cool part about NALT is that it appears to do all this when the user is under stress. That could be college stress, work stress, relationship stress, stress caused by intense exercise, and even stressors like cold and heat. And when stress is abated other things affected by it improve, like libido.

Tip: 5 Ways to Dominate the Toughest Ab Exercise | T Nation

Instead of collapsing all the way to the ground at the point of failure, collapse to the knees. This shifts the point of contact from the feet to the knees. From here it's just like a kneeling rollout. Complete the rep by pulling the wheel back and standing back up. This shouldn't feel as intense as full negatives, so shoot for 5-10 reps.

9 Ways to Eat for Muscle During the Holidays

Every bodybuilder requires large amounts of protein – 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight per day to keep growing. What you don’t want too much of is fat. Although Aceto recommends staying away from fatty meats such as ham, prime rib and lamb as much as possible, you can load up on the turkey…parts of it, anyway. Turkey breast, without the skin, is some of the leanest protein around, providing more protein and less fat than chicken or red meat, he says.

7 Ways To Turn A Stale Workout Into A Fresh Challenge

No, this isn't an everyday thing, and no, it doesn't have to be a true 1RM. A solid 2-3 reps with a surprising weight is probably good enough. Make it your top priority by doing it first when you’re fresh and ready to put out some real effort. Just be sure to warm up properly, and don’t sacrifice good form just to get a new record.

Velocity Diet® Plan - The New Science of Rapid Body Transformation - Biotest

The Velocity Diet is a science based, rapid body-transformation program that's so powerful and so effective that results border on being unbelievable. But this system is not for everyone.*

The 8 Worst Things to Do After a Workout

In a perfect world all of us would be able to grab about an hour’s nap right after training to help our muscles and nervous system recover, but for most this is just not possible. I recommend that at the very least you avoid physically strenuous activity after working out. You should take at least a little time to just sit, relax and comfortably consume your post-workout meal. Weight training will only be effective if the body gets adequate rest to allow for the rebuilding process to take place.

Tip: A Simple Way to Boost Total Body Strength | T Nation

If you've never experimented with this, you'll be blown away at the sympathetic response. In just a few rounds on both sides, your heart rate will be skyrocketing, your core and glutes will burn, and you may even get a little bit of a shake. Perfect. That's the type of response that builds grip and full-body strength.

3 Nutrition Bro Tips Debunked!

It's no secret that protein plays a major role in repairing and rebuilding muscle. That's because the building blocks of protein, amino acids, are what come together to form your hard-earned muscle. But when the discussion turns to the optimal protein intake to maximize muscle growth, things quickly gets muddy. You'll find zealots swearing by numbers as various as a gram per kilo or pound of bodyweight, two grams, or even more. Further confusing things are all those legends about bodybuilders of yore crushing man-sized piles of eggs, fish, and steak on the daily.

Tip: Live Longer, Prepare Veggies Like This | T Nation

The one thing that just about everyone can agree on is that eating fruits and vegetables is good for you, but just how good is always up for debate. In attempt to at least make a dent in solving that debate, scientists at the University of Sydney used data from more than a 150,000 Australians during the "Australian 45 and Up Study" and followed them for an average of 6.2 years.

Tip: The Farmer's Carry Is Essential | T Nation

For long-term orthopedic and functional success, you should be able to pick up a heavy object, stabilize, then walk with it. The inability to do so is a sign your grip is fragile and that you're susceptible to chronic issues in places like the lower back, shoulders, and elbows. So don't neglect these.

Tip: Nuts. You're Eating Them Wrong | T Nation

Here's why, plus much healthier ways to buy your nuts and make them taste awesome.

Tip: Strong Traps, Iron Grip | T Nation

Grinding away hundreds of reps on shrugs using a half-inch range of motion won't cut it. It's just not a good use of time. The deadlift is. The deadlift is probably your strongest absolute lift. Milk it for all it's worth instead of letting hundreds of pounds of iron drop to the floor.

Tip: A Simple Way to Boost Total Body Strength | T Nation

If you've never experimented with this, you'll be blown away at the sympathetic response. In just a few rounds on both sides, your heart rate will be skyrocketing, your core and glutes will burn, and you may even get a little bit of a shake. Perfect. That's the type of response that builds grip and full-body strength.

Tip: Eat This Kind of Bread | T Nation

Even if you think bread is a devil carb, there's one type you should be eating. Take a look.

Tip: The Hybrid Hammer Curl | T Nation

When it comes to functional hypertrophy of the arms, the slight angles for both hand and shoulder positions are far more advantageous than the common fully pronated, fully supinated, and neutral grip positions with a neutral shoulder. Why? Because the body functions in spiraling groups of muscle, fascia, and neural connections. These create tension. So limiting this irradiation reflex doesn't make sense. Instead, train it directly.

25 Greatest Power Songs of All Time

First of all, there will be no apologies. Debate? Sure. We can debate all night. But, We’re sorry if you don’t like our picks? Never. This is our list of the 25 greatest songs of all time to get you scowling, growling and heaving iron. We surveyed former and current pro bodybuilders, we collected hundreds of staff picks, and then we made difficult choices - all so we could say without hesitation: Here are the best training songs. Ever. Songs that shoot a visceral rush through your veins. Songs that drive you outside for parking-lot lunges in the cold. Songs that have you screaming like a crazed beast as you make the squat rack your indentured servant. Find these songs. Listen to them. But most important: Play them loud. We've included it all - rock , rap , you name it. So, take a look.

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.

One-Dimensional Attack

Here, we rehabilitate the reputation of “one” with 10 unilateral exercises you probably aren’t doing so you can take a “one-sided” approach for better gains.

The top fantasy football risers and fallers for week 17

While the New York Giants continue to fail miserably at having a consistent running game, Rashad Jennings has remained the team's starter, recording sporadic performances of value. In recent weeks, however, rookie Paul Perkins has begun to emerge as a prime candidate to oust Jennings from the starting role. This past week against the Eagles, Perkins took a major step forward, leading the team in carries for just the second time this season. With Jennings over 30-years-old, Perkins is beginning to look like New York's running back of the future. In the short term, he could be given the lead role once again against the Redskins in Week 17. At this point, Jennings is too inconsistent to garner starts in the season finale. A Jennings swap in favor of Perkins could be in the cards for those counting on the eight-year veteran to win championships.Want to see the rest of the risers and fallers? Check out the full list at RotoBaller .

Universal Nutrition Animal Fury at - Best Prices on Animal Fury!

Great pre workout stack! For the price you are lucky to get a pre workout with half the ingredients (when on sale, when not it doesn't blow similiar priced pre stacks away so maybe pick it for the pump your prefere), especially for the quality that has always followed Universal Nutrition, plus you get to join team Animal which in my opinion is carving out a beast with Centopani. Only gripe is that there really isnt any initial like i want to grab this weighy type of aggresion but in trade it gives you a clean awake feeling your entire workout with zero crash! (really zero crash aspect is amazing with this.)

The 7 best supplements to boost your immunity

A blue-green algae that often pops up in questionable looking Day-Glo-colored “health food” drinks, spirulina can’t be counted out on appearance alone. There is serious evidence that it has a variety of potentially helpful uses, including strengthening immunity, says Patel. Animal research on spirulina is strong; and though there hasn’t been much testing done on humans, one 2008 study did find that taking 2g of spirulina a day for several months helped some men and women to overcome nasal allergies. “Spirulina is very safe, and may help to lower inflammation in the body, improving overall health as well,” Patel adds.

33 Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen by MuscleTech at - Best Prices on Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen!

Two decades in the making, new HYDROXYCUT HARDCORE NEXT GEN features potent doses of key ingredients in unique, never-before-seen combinations to deliver the ultimate stimulant experience. It also contains green coffee for real weight loss results.

Most thermogenic formulas don't have any scientific studies backing their key weight loss ingredients, let alone two.*

Tip: Do The Loaded Hang | T Nation

Control the descent of your last rep on the pull-up bar and maintain the tension and the position at the shoulder while squeezing the bar as hard as you can. Stay in that position, fighting the urge to go lax at the shoulders. Don't hang out on the capsule and ligaments.

The 4 Biggest Holiday Fitness Destroyers

So, you’ve let your gym membership slide and you’re thinking you’ll just wait 'til the post-New Year’s deals before you re-sign up. Or you figure, with all the holiday parties and dinners you have lined up, you may as well wait until after January 1st to really commit to that new low-carb diet plan. Problem with this kind of thinking is that while you are waiting for the perfect time to make fitness your priority, you are packing on inches to your waist and getting further and further away from your goals. And, at this rate, it will take you until April just to get back to where you were in October.


One reason that this advice is so damaging is that nutrition is all about context. The perfect diet for a hardcharging athlete will be very different from that of someone trying to lose body fat. Therefore, this article will discuss some of the more harmful pieces of nutrition advice that are relevant to an informed and active population.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, December 22, 2016

Thursday, December 22, 2016 - People might be high-strung today as the demands of the busy season begin to take their toll.

Learn how to crank up your workout and turn up your muscle-building gains

Max Out Your Testosterone Levels

University of Rio de Janeiro researchers examined how rest periods affected testosterone levels in response to heavy-load, low-volume workouts. Each workout consisted of five sets of three reps using 85% of 1RM, with either a one- or three-minute rest period.

How to be "The best sex of her life"

I personally don’t sex and tell, so this is all just hypothetical, but one thing’s for certain: Human sexuality is a rainbow of weird that’s very hard to pin down. That means while it’s good that you care about satisfying your partner, it’s going to be impossible to predict what ingredients will add up to her “best sex ever”—so there’s no point in agonizing over it or wasting brainpower trying to figure it out.

6 Weighted Abs Exercises for a Shredded Stomach

This is a great gymnastic movement that is an advanced version of traditional hanging leg raises . It utilizes the lats, core, hip flexors, biceps and smaller muscles in the back. This exercise requires the body to bow from a global extension (hanging hollow body position) to a global flexion (pike position). I don't recommend this exercise for everyone. You must master the hanging straight leg raise first. Once you get strong enough, I recommend doing low reps with NO kip action. Start by gripping a small dumbbell with your feet and perform 3 sets of 8 reps and then add weight as you progress.

3 workout finishers that'll push your program to the next level

You’re drenched with sweat, you’re starving, and your muscles ache all over, but the blood’s still pumping and you know you’ve got a bit left in the tank. You also know that whether you’re lifting, running, cycling, or doing CrossFit, that last bit of effort you put into any workout program can really push it to the next level—it’s what separates a six-pack from, you know, a six-pack . So make your training really count using these proven workout finishers, customized for every fitness goal.

The best winter running gear for ice, snow, sleet, and rain

Saucony outfitted its award-winning trail runners with a fleece-lined, weatherproof upper that seals out slush and snow. But the soles are the true standout: The Vibram Arctic Grip, a cutting-edge rubber tread, latches on to slick, wet ice without the use of carbide studs, so you can go from black ice to bare pavement without slowing down.

The 5 Best Training Tips You've Never Heard

As an example, few beginners enjoy leg day, and the one exercise they steer clear of the most is the squat. Leg extensions, on the other hand, well, they aren't so bad. But which one delivers more bang for your buck? That's easy: multijoint, free-weight exercises like the squat have been proven to be superior to single-joint moves and machine work. Multijoint moves have been linked to a greater release of muscle-building hormones like testosterone and growth hormone. Moreover, if you've avoided them until now, your muscles are likely to respond to a growth spurt.

5 Rules for Building Bigger Triceps

The man who wants  bigger triceps  cannot live on pressdowns alone. Too often, we see guys in the gym—and maybe you're one of them—working his triceps to death at the cable pressdown station. Ten sets, 15 sets... whatever it takes to get them sore. But what the pressdown-happy masses don't seem to realize is that this exercise emphasizes the lateral (outer) head of the triceps. So if that's all you do, the other two heads of your tri's are going to be underdeveloped and you'll never get the kind of growth you're hoping for.
