Tip: The 5 Minerals for Muscles | T Nation

If you're a plain old human, you're also likely deficient in magnesium. By some estimates, up to 80 percent of Americans aren't getting enough magnesium and may be deficient. And then there's the exercise thing, which also applies to magnesium. The more you sweat, the more magnesium you ooze out.

Tip: Full-Range Pull-Ups and Pulldowns Suck | T Nation

But things don't just end there. A well-intentioned lifter may think he's staying two steps ahead of the game by not allowing the shoulder blades to rise up by keeping them packed down for the entire duration of a set of pull-ups or pulldowns. This will fatigue the muscles holding the shoulder blades down and they'll eventually tire out, especially with a heavy load. What you need to do is reset them between each rep.

The 25 Best Exercises for Your Lower Abs

First, a quick physiology lesson: Your rectus abdominis is really one, long muscle that includes both your "upper" and "lower" abs. So, there are no exercises that explicitly isolate either half individually (even though you may "feel the burn" more so in one area than other). Still, there are things you can do to really make that lower area pop, says Don Saladino, CPT, owner of Drive 495 .

Best Moves for a Bigger, Stronger Back

When you see someone walking around the gym with a  big back , you can guarantee they can jump up and kill 15-20  pull-ups  without even breaking a sweat. See the connection? Pull-ups and chin-ups are two of the best mass builders for the back. Targeting the lats, shoulders, biceps and grip, these exercises have so many different varieties, you’ll never get bored.

Tip: Do the Sandwich Press for Big Pecs | T Nation

The traditional squeeze press is performed by squeezing together a pair of dumbbells as you press them up. Besides nailing the chest (particularly the inner fibers), it also teaches you how to fire your lats and tuck your elbows while pressing, which is important for pain-free pressing mechanics and healthy shoulders.

NLA for Her - Uplift by NLA Performance at - Best Prices on NLA for Her - Uplift!

I have taken a couple different preworkout powders. Uplift was good for the first few days, but then I had to up the dosage and take two scoops as I grew a tolerance to it quickly. Taking two scoops worked out well, but then you burn through the container pretty quickly. I have only tried the Raspberry Lemonade flavor and I wasn't too fond of it. The flavor was too extreme for my taste buds so I would have to mix it with more water than recommended to tone it down. I will not be taking this any longer as I have found that other preworkouts are a better fit for me.

The Winter Bulk Up: How to Gain Muscle in 4 Weeks

3. The Bulk Up plan revolves around "straight sets" versus the use of "super-sets" or "tri-sets". Once you complete a set of an exercise you will rest, then repeat for the prescribed number of sets that follow. This is another strategy to allow for ample recovery. The only time "tri-sets" will be used are for short ab/core workouts at the end.

4 tips for increasing your vertical jump

A depth jump is performed by stepping off a box, then exploding up immediately after landing on the ground. This teaches reaction time and will help your lower body muscles activate when you need to catch air. Start by standing on a box that's 6 to 8 inches off the ground. Step off. As soon as you touch the ground, jump as high as you can, reaching your arms overhead. Land softly in an athletic position. Take a second to recover, then step back onto the box, set yourself up, and repeat. Follow this progression:

7 Probiotic Foods You Should Be Eating

Your intestines are home to 500 million bacteria, some good and some bad. Recent research suggests that the more good bacteria in your gut, the stronger your immune system will be. Probiotics are often referred to as “good bacteria”—they help the body absorb important vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, chromium, and vitamins A, D, E, and K, just to name a few. Work these probiotic foods into your eating routine to boost your intestinal—and overall—health.

6 workout routines for rock-solid muscle definition and detail

You're not the only one that gets bored to hell with the same routine. Your muscles do too. (Oh, look, there's that mind-muscle connection thing again). After months, or even years of the same exercises day-in and day-out you've done an outstanding job at holding your body back from it's potential for next-level definition and hardness. You and your body are simply too accustomed to the same thing. We're creatures of habit with a tendency to follow the path of least resistance, or stick to the things we know. Everythings always the damn-same. Squat, bench, dead, squat, bench, dead. You know it, we know it—they're the cornerstones. But they're not the only exercises known to man.

5 Worst Things to Do for Building Bigger Triceps

If I had a nickel for every time a person asked me to “make a muscle,” I would be one wealthy dude. The funny thing is, when I get that request I am always tempted to flex my back or calf since all they asked for was a muscle. Of course, however, I know what it is they want to see, and that is the biceps. But what most people don’t realize is that it is actually the triceps that create most of the arms’ mass, so when a lifter throws up an arm and puts on a gun show, they are actually gawking at more tri than bi.

The Single Worst Exercise | T Nation

In case you haven't seen anyone doing this bastardized exercise, they stand on an upside-down BOSU ball with a pair of dumbbells and do dumbbell curls. In order to keep their balance, they alternate arms and pump them really fast. The effect is kind of similar to one of those spinning-top toys that toddlers play with – if the top slows down, it falls over and splashes pabulum on the kitty. Same thing with the BOSU ball curlers – if they slow down their arms, they fall over and do a header onto the glute/ham raise machine.

Should Your Workout Kick Your Ass?

Box jumps require a bit of experience and athleticism to do properly, but sprinting up a hill is doable for almost anybody. Find a fairly steep grade and dash up it. Walk back to the bottom and, when you’re ready, charge up the hill again; repeat for about 20 minutes. (You don’t need to go again right away—in fact, this may cause you to break form and get hurt, so don’t.) While running on flat ground can cause pulled hamstrings or hip flexors in beginners, sprinting on an incline slows you down so you don’t put the same pressure on your lower body. You can still work hard and not get hurt. Imagine that.

The Classic Straight Up Biceps Workout

“There’s no magic number of reps when it comes to building massive biceps,” says Ryno, who recommends doing this routine either with triceps or on its own.“The key is to include a variety of rep schemes—low reps, medium reps,high reps—into your overall program. This routine forces you to use all of these rep ranges. Be mindful to select the proper poundage foreach exercise. Going too heavy only leads to bad form, not fully stimulating the muscles and overstressing the elbows. You need to focus on the biceps working.Train the muscle, not the movement.”

Stink-Proof Workout Gear for Running, Cycling, Skiing, and More

Exercise clothing is a magnet for smelly bacteria that multiply in the fibers and drum up all manner of foul odors, making your sweat sessions less than pleasant for you and everyone around you. That is, until naturally occurring silver salts came on the scene. The fitness industry is using these as its best weapon in the fight against stench. Fabrics are washed and coated in the particles, which bond to clothing and slow bacterial growth to a creep, prolonging the life of your favorite gear. And not only are these high-tech shirts odor repellent, they’re also cool enough to wear outside the gym—certainly nothing to be sniffed at.

10 Bodyweight Ab Exercises You’ve Never Tried

How to do it: Start in a high plank on your hands with your arms straight and feet shoulder-width apart. Bend one arm to bring the elbow and forearm to the floor. Bring the other arm down so you're in a low plank position with your forearms on the floor (elbows on the ground directly under your shoulders). When you bring your forearms to the floor, your elbows should be placed where your hand was previously. Push back up to the start position, placing each hand where your elbows were. Repeat this movement, alternating which side you lower first, for 1 minute.

5 Unique Shrugs to Get You Yoked

Set the crash bars on a squat rack at about mid-thigh level. Unlike a conventional bar shrug the resistance will actually be behind you. This slight deviation stresses the mid traps more than a standard bar shrug. Hand placement on the bar can also serve as a way to recruit different parts of your traps. Try it with a close grip, shoulder width grip and just inside of a snatch grip to really tax the upper back from different areas. Perform 3 sets of 20-25 reps.

The Coolest Winter Coats for Men: 2016 Edition

Blow Up Your Brachioradialis with Hammers

The brachioradialis is the muscle at the top of the forearm that “blends” into the brachialis at the elbow. It's about two-thirds the way up the humerus with its insertion on the styloid process of the radius. It closes the gap between the forearm and biceps when you’re performing a front double biceps pose. The best exercise to bring up your brachioradiales is the dumbbell hammer curl. The dumbbells can be brought straight up in front or across the chest.

About an hour after you eat the salty soup, you’re going to want something to quench your thirst. Salt does not directly increase body fat but it will increase water retention.

5 Ways to Get More Motivated to Go to the Gym

"I'm not a big fan of hooting and hollering," says Winkelman. "I will let them know when they've done something great, but I will not come down on them hard when they've done something wrong." That positive reinforcement helps the athletes focus on things they can change, rather than waste time and energy being upset. In your own training, reframe the way you think about success and failure. Instead of beating yourself up about missing a lift, think about the things you've done well. You don't need to endure a death march on the treadmill to make progress—so give yourself credit for getting into the gym on a tough night when you're tired and sore! ­ From there, build on those things. Simply thinking in a different way will help you realize how effective positive reinforcement can be.

The One Supplement You Can't Live Without | T Nation

It's hard to find a good supplement for fat loss that doesn't have stimulating effects. I'm very sensitive to certain stimulants and Indigo-3G® isn't a thermogenic; it doesn't contain any stimulants, therefore it doesn't cause the jitters or the crash that can come after it. It makes you feel like a machine in the gym. The muscle pumps are unreal and I don't experience any drops in energy during my training sessions.

5 Ways to Work Out Without Weights

For instance, perform wide-grip pullups to just shy of failure. Immediately bring your grip in and turn your palms to face you so you’re doing a chinup. Do as many chinups as you can and then bring your hands in even closer so you’re doing a close-grip chinup with hands nearly touching. On pushups, you could start with your hands touching (a diamond pushup) and then move them out to shoulder width. When you can’t do any more reps like that, place your hands on a bench or seat so your body is at an incline—a much easier position to do pushups in. Rep out to failure.
