Make 8 Great Exercises Even Better | T Nation

There's no reason why this shouldn't also apply to pulling movements, just like how horizontal pushing movements (bench press, push-ups, etc.) are complimented by horizontal pulling movements (row variations). And, just like how vertical pushing movements (shoulder presses) are complimented by vertical pulling movements (pull-ups and pulldowns), diagonal pushing movements (incline presses, angled barbell presses) are complimented by exercises like leaning lat pulldowns and high-cable standing one-arm rows.

The 6 Most Overrated Exercises Ever | T Nation

On the movement side of this equation, we need to focus on activities that burn lots of calories, either during, and/or after the activity itself. Now follow this closely, because it's important: What burns calories is doing work. Work is defined as moving a mass over a specific distance. Any time you increase the weight or increase the distance (range of motion) you've done more work, and therefore have burned more calories.

Build Great Glutes & Lats With Light Weight | T Nation

Using too much weight and having to excessively twist your body means you're doing more oblique work than really hitting your lats and scapular muscles. The point of the row is to bring up a lagging muscle group for isolated development (if your goal is size), and possibly to assist a bigger movement that involves the same muscle groups (if your goal is strength). It defeats the purpose when you try to haul so much weight that the key muscle groups are no longer being trained in specificity.

Tip: One Exercise For Big Delts and a Strong Grip | T Nation

This helps to maximize recruitment of the lateral delts. In addition, you should raise the weights to shoulder height or a bit lower. Going any higher will take tension off the deltoids and place undue tension on the traps and glenohumeral joint.

Obviously this approach can't save everybody who competes at a high level, but this along with the medical testing would go a long way in preventing death and making the sport healthier.

QI: The Russian Training Secret | T Nation

6 Weighted Ab Exercises for a Shredded Six-Pack

This gymnastic movement 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 contract from a global extension (hanging hollow body position) to a global flexion (pike position). This tough exercise isn't for everyone, though. You must first master the hanging straight leg raise without any weight (shown above). Once you get strong enough, try doing sets with low reps and no kipping action.

Eating for Muscle Mass: 8 Questions Answered

Proper nutrition will keep your energy up and your muscles nourished. Improper nutrition — snacking on a hearty diet filled with sugary snacks and empty calories — will put mass in all the wrong areas. “You want extra quality calories, not just extra calories,” he says. “Once you get that dialed in, the timing becomes the issue. There’s a big difference between eating 200 grams of protein first thing in the morning or the last thing at night, or spread out in five servings of 40 grams over the course of an entire day. Don’t believe me? Try it, but consider yourself — and your housemates — forewarned!”

Fantasy football rankings analysis for week 14

I’m also apparently set on sabotaging my ranks by floating DeAndre Hopkins (#17 vs. #23 consensus) back into the thick of WR2 territory for his matchup against the Colts. Indianapolis may have held their own against Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 13, but that impresses nobody. They are still a lowly 30th in overall DVOA, and Hopkins saw an insane 15 targets the first time these teams met in Week 6. Now we’re not banking on a season-high 15 targets being replicated, but his nine catches were also a season-high mark. That points to how the Colts really cannot handle someone of Hopkins’ talent. The game is indoors as well, which helps Brock out considering he just embarrassed himself in snowy Lambeau Field last week.

Tip: The King of Shoulder Exercises | T Nation

The delts are usually described as having three muscle heads – anterior, middle, and posterior – but there are really SEVEN individual segments. The delts also have a mixed fiber type, so you need to hit them with both heavy weights and low reps as well as using higher reps with lighter weights. But what's the best overall exercise? The standing dumbbell press.

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. Step into advanced isolation training.

Resistance doesn't always slow you down; sometimes conflict resolution acts as a propelling force.

7 Exercises to Blow Up Your Arms

Sasan Heirati is looking to make a huge impression in the IFBB pro ranks, and one thing is certain—Heirati is unlikely to be let down by his arms. At 22 and 21 inches (the right one is slightly bigger than the left), they’re not lacking size, but, as always with Heirati, it’s about the quality rather than just mass. However, he wasn’t born with impressive pipes. “When I started bodybuilding at 14, I didn’t have good arms, but they grew quickly,” he says.

The Best Fish for Bodybuilders

Salmon is a great source but has a high overall fat content that most of us cannot consume regularly without overdoing it on the calories—keep it to once a week. Some fish, like tilefish, shark, and swordfish, should be avoided because of high mercury levels; others, like albacore tuna, should be eaten only once a week. If you’re a fan of canned tuna, get the light Pacific kind: It’s lower in mercury and higher in omega-3 fatty acids compared with albacore. You can also choose fresh Pacific-caught tuna steaks specified as light or skipjack, bluefin or yellowfin tuna. Consume moderately—up to 12 ounces a week—and it’s very accommodating to a low- or high-calorie diet.

10 Tricks for Bigger, Healthier Shoulders

There is no denying it, great shoulders complete a physique. They give you width and top off that coveted V-taper. Your waist can be as small as can be, but without a killer pair of delts it will just not look right. Sadly, great or even good shoulders are rare these days and it is not due to lack of effort. If one takes a look around in most gyms, they’ll find that most shoulders are slopped forward and/or injured. Rarely do your see a nice pair of cannonball delts so I made it my mission to change that sorry state of affairs.

Eduardo Correa's Bodybuilding Lessons

Futebol—aka soccer—is not just the national sport of Brazil— it’s the national obsession. The youngest of two boys, Brazilian native Eduardo Correa excelled at soccer and earned his way onto a prestigious teenage team. When he began toiling with weights to improve his futebol fitness, he realized quickly he liked barbells more than checkered balls. Naturally strong, he competed as a powerlifter. And, when his rapidly expanding musculature slowed his quickness, he gave up the soccer pitch for the gym. At 19, he entered and won his first bodybuilding contest, and his future came into focus.

6 Perfect Muscle-Building Meals

700 calories, 60 g protein, 83 g carbs, 13 g fat Why? For muscle-building, there'’s nothing like beef -— it contains creatine, all the necessary aminos and a full spectrum of B vitamins, and it'’s dense in iron to assist in energy production. Pasta provides carbs, which are essential for energy, and broccoli yields compounds that help with fat control. Hardgainer Tip: Choose lean, not extra-lean, beef (around 10%-–15% fat as opposed to under 10%). The extra fat and calories spare the burning of glycogen and protein for greater growth. Shredding Tip: Temper your lunchtime carb intake: Eat just 1 cup of pasta but double up on the broccoli -— low in calories, high in fiber -— to control calories and your feelings of hunger.

7 Training Steps to Pack on Size

If you've found it difficult to add strength by using traditional equipment, perhaps it's time to add bands to the mix. University of Wisconsin (La Crosse) researchers had 10 trained male and female subjects lift 85% 1RM on the Smith machine squat for two sets of three reps using a standard barbell or a barbell with 20% of the weight applied by exercise bands. For example, if the 85% 1RM was 300 pounds, one trial would use a bar loaded with 300 pounds of free weights and the other would use a bar loaded with 240 pounds of free weights and the bands providing the additional 60 pounds. When subjects did the squat with the bands, they exhibited around 25% more power than when they did the squat without the bands. To take advantage of exercise-band training for added strength, consider purchasing a quality set of exercise bands from a powerlifting equipment supplier such as Elite Fitness Systems ( .

Old School Training Video - Good Mornings

Old School Training Video. This is a clip from one of the original WSBB training videos (they have been reproduced twice since this) that I used to use in my seminars. This is a good morning where you push your ass back to work the hamstring while trying to get the bar right over toes. These are best done for 3-5 reps for strength work. We tried singles for years and just created more issues than strength. #elitefts #westsidebarbell #hairdays #powerlifting #strengthtraining #davetate

6 Exercises That Need Excellent Form

Form Points: Plant your feet firmly on the ground about shoulder-width apart, or slightly wider, depending on the “style” of deadlift you are performing.  Grab the bar with either a double overhand grip, or a combination over/under grip. Note: If you prefer an under/over grip, it may be best to switch hands set-to-set or workout-to-workout to avoid over-pulling on just one bicep repeatedly. I also recommend the use of wrist wraps to take some of the strain off of the forearm extensors and flexors. Bend the knees to almost 90 degrees and bend at the hips so the chest is over the bar and the torso is parallel to the ground. Begin your pull by driving through the feet, then contract the quads, glutes, hips and lower back to smoothly, but forcefully, get the bar from the ground to near the top of the lift. To straighten the torso completely, you will thrust the hips forward, tighten the glutes, lift the traps and then retract the shoulder blades. From this tightly-locked standing position, carefully reverse the process as you lower the bar back to the floor. Begin the next rep from a c
