Better Than Regular Squats | T Nation

It turns out that when you tell most non-lifters to "squat," they simply bend sharply from the knees, as if the squat were a single-joint movement. Of course, if you asked that same person to sit down, he'd immediately do a near-perfect squat. When you sit, you initiate the movement by sitting back with your hips. This creates tension on the hamstrings, which has a protective effect on the knees. Now of course, your knees will indeed bend. If they don't, it's not a squat.

The Ultimate Program for Body Comp Improvement | T Nation

On days where you're feeling tired, back off a bit, get the work in, and go home. There will be plenty of other workouts to do for the week, so don't make one single session the benchmark for success. If you find performance taking a hit every day, back off the effort for a few days until it returns. This is a tool for learning your body and the degree of effort it can recover from.

Tip: Sugar Is Not Addictive | T Nation

To those people, sugar is their white whale, or more precisely, their granulated, cane, or even turbinado whale. If this mob had been alive more than a century ago, they'd be wearing long skirts and carrying axes and helping bulldog-faced Carrie Nation in her fight to be history's greatest killjoy by busting up bars, speakeasies, and liquor bottles in her fight against killer alcohol.

Tip: An Illogical Approach to Explosive Lifts | T Nation

I use a similar strategy with CrossFit athletes. I have them do their snatch or clean & jerk after their squats and deadlifts. They'll do two phases and the last phase they switch the order. All have had serious gains in their lifts. One went from a 245 pound snatch to a 295 pound snatch, and from a 315 pound clean to a 375 pound clean. Of course that's an extreme example, but all reported solid gains from an illogical approach.

The Best Way to Build Your Butt | T Nation

With the split squat, there are a few cues to remember. For one, if you're doing these with the rear leg on a bench, think about the knee of that leg going down and back as you keep the weight on the heal of the planted foot. This will help you load the glutes instead of getting too much knee flexion on the planted foot, which loads the quads more. Also make sure and use iso-holds at the end of each set for about 10 seconds, only coming about three-fourths of the way back up. This will really torch the glute medius.

Tip: Simple Macros for Muscle Building | T Nation

Shoot for 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. There appears to be no major benefit to consuming more protein if you're a drug-free lifter. Still, if you're having trouble getting your calories, feel free to get more protein. Just realize it may not be beneficial, at least for muscle gains.

Tip: The Smart Way to Lift Twice a Day | T Nation

I started doing this 6-7 years ago out of necessity. I had a pretty hectic schedule with clients, and simply didn't have enough time to complete a full workout. But what I did have was two small opportunities with an open window in the morning and then another one in the evening. This allowed me two 45-minute sessions a day.

Tip: Stop Worrying About Being Over 40 | T Nation

Of course, if you started training in your 30's then "over-40" training might mean something, but if you've been training for at least 10 or 15 years by the time you hit 40, it's just another in a long line of meaningless, arbitrary "milestones" that are based on civilization's obsession with round numbers.

13
The Beasts-Only Back Workout

Once you complete the T-bar row, jump over to the bench and grab a big dumbbell for pull-overs. Pull-overs are as old-school as they come, but they still work today. To minimize pec recruitment, lift only until the weight is over your forehead, then lower back down, feeling that stretch in the lats before you lift back up again. Rest 1 minute between supersets.

Tip: For Fat Loss, Faster is Better | T Nation

Conventional wisdom says you should lose body fat slowly to build sustainable long-term habits, prevent metabolic adaptation, and fight muscle loss. But I think aggressive, 30-45 day fat loss phases are better than the long, slow, and steady approach. Here's why:

JMaier31 Cutting Through the Holidays

Here’s the plan for the next three weeks. I had to go back and review some stuff in the Beyond 5/3/1 book. Long story short, I haven’t been pushing myself with my lifts. I was kind of doing Training Maximally but then I started having symptoms/pain from my bulged disc and my shoulder started hurting. To avoid making things worse I’ve kind of backed off and have been just going for stimulating the muscles but there hasn’t really been much progression. At least 5/3/1 takes the guess work out of it. As you can see there’s no OHP but there’s definitely some power cleans!

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, November 18, 2017

Saturday, November 18, 2017 - Your life is on the launch pad again but this time the rocket ship could actually reach escape velocity. The Scorpio New Moon reinforces your 12th House of Destiny, sending off a ripple of synchronicities while preparing you for an intervention by the “Flying Fickle Finger of Fate.” But it’s dangerous to jump to outrageous conclusions, especially once the Moon flies into optimistic Sagittarius. You’re so eager to start your new adventure that your spontaneity could cause trouble. Ben Franklin said, "Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes."

The Complete Guide to Bulking and Cutting | T Nation

The risk of hormonal disruption is increased during prolonged low-calorie dieting phases. To mitigate this, increase your fat intake compared to a mass phase. This isn't an excuse to go full Atkins and start chowing down avocadoes wrapped in bacon and dipped in butter. Just be mindful that you need to be in a caloric deficit while consuming sufficient fat to not feel like a bag of crap the whole time. Eat 1g/kg of fat per day.

Amino Build Next Gen | MuscleTech

Bought two tubs of the Amino Build and have been using both flavors almost daily, for two weeks now. I got the caffeinated version of Orange Mango Cooler and also Concord Grape. The flavors are great. The Concord Grape was my absolute favorite. The Orange Mango Cooler tasted 70%Mango and 30%Orange to me. The price was very affordable (2/$35) and shipping was extremely fast. The only letdown was the lack of energy from this, even when three-scooping it, which would total 150mg caffeine. I did mot expect the same energy as you’d get from a PreWorkout, but I did expect at least SOME energy, especially when multi-scooping it. In the future, I will just order the non caffeinated version of this. Will purchase again for sure.

Dymatize PRE W.O. at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on PRE W.O.!

When I first mixed up a serving of this pre I was delighted to see it had no artificial colors. I swirled it around and smelled it and it had a pleasant fruity scent. I tasted it and was a little confused because most pre's have an odd taste or after taste due to the stimulants and other ingredients in them but this was delicious. It tasted exactly like a liquid sweet tart. I found it very had not to mix another one up just to sip on and enjoy the flavor. Now, to what really matters...This product delivers. I never experienced this huge rush of caffeinated fury energy, rather I felt focused, zoned in, and prepared for my workout. Thanks to the Teacrine in here the energy and focus never left. I always felt strong and zoned in during my gym sessions no matter what I was doing that day. My favorite days to use it was arm days because I would get an awesome pump and it would make my arms look much more impressive. My only complaint about this product is that it's only 20 servings per container when I want more of this elite level pre workout! All in all I will be
