The Evolution Of Gold's Gym | Bodybuilding Chronicles

Shawn Ray's first hand experience with Gold's Gym - from it's prime to today. Gold's Gym is like a beacon of light in the history of bodybuilding. Known as The Mecca of Bodybuilding, Gold's Gym Venice is in many ways the genesis of bodybuilding as we know it today. It brought together the original legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sergio Oliva, Franco Columbu, and more. Sadly, the Gold's Gym of today isn't the same (both ideologically and physically - they changed locations since it's inception). Now the idea of The Mecca exists mostly as legend and inspiration for young aspiring bodybuilders. Corporate America, globalization, and the rise of digital and online media has changed the way bodybuilders socialize, get training information, and evolve as competitors. That's why Shawn Ray gives us a detailed oral history of his experience with Gold's Gym. It may not have been the 70's Golden Era with Arnold Schwarzenegger - but it was still a moment of a boom for Gold's Gym. It was a time when the gym was popularized by Pumping Iron - but had yet to lose the intimate spirit that made it such an important place in bodybuilding history.

The Most Important Movement Pattern | T Nation

A hip hinge is a hip hinge, plain and simple. Although much of the info here illustrated using the RDL example, the mechanics involved in any hinge movement, including RDL's, good mornings, kettlebell swings, single leg RDL's, and cable pull-throughs, remains very similar from variation to variation.

Don't make these common squat mistakes:

The Squat Is Overrated | T Nation

Research backs this up. One such study from Fonseca et al. had a bunch of participants do a whole range of quad exercises (squats, lunges, leg presses and deadlifts), and a different bunch do squats. While the multi-exercise participants achieved growth in all four parts of the quads, the squat-participants consistently lacked growth in the rectus femoris.

Tip: A Common Chest Training Mistake | T Nation

Dumbbell flyes provide little to no force on your pecs when your wrists are directly above your shoulders. However, since cable flyes involve working against 45-degree force vector (the cables themselves), your pecs end up dealing with a great deal of load when your hands are directly in front of your shoulders.

Beyond The Freaks: More People Use Synthol Than You Know | The Breakdown Clip

Preview: Real bodybuilders can spot synthol users beyond the freaks. The unfortunate side of the digital age of social media and personal online profiles is the celebritizing people who do stupid things at an alarming pace. This isn't anything new (remember MTV's Jackass?), but is happening much more often because of the exposure the internet provides across the world. One such version of this are the synthol freaks. Men and women who inject themselves with so much oil that they look like ballooned cartoon characters. They are so shocking that they rake up millions of views, likes, clicks, and get talked about on news channels and networks. But synthol use goes beyond just the freaks - perhaps even more than you could possibly imagine. In this preview clip of our upcoming episode of The Breakdown, Shawn Ray, Tifanny Urrea, and Mac Trucc discuss the shocking videos and pictures of "popular" synthol freaks... but also discuss how a real bodybuilder who has trained for decades can spot people who secretly use oil to tidy up some lacking areas. Check it all out in these clip above and make sure to catch the full episode tomorrow February 7th! Bodybuilding, fitness, weight training - all on the Generation Iron Fitness Network!

Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, February 5, 2018

Monday, February 5, 2018 - You could be the one who steps beyond the boundaries today. You can sign up for one activity, only to find yourself committed to something entirely different than you imagined. Unfortunately, your longing for where you want to be is louder than the satisfaction you derive from where you are now. Luckily, your peers seem to be supportive of your lofty ambitions, but you still might worry about whether you can keep up with their worldly expectations. Choose productivity over perfection.

Episode 6: Do Synthol Freaks Give Bodybuilding A Bad Name? | The Breakdown

People need to stop lumping in synthol freaks with the word bodybuilding. Synthol Freaks - wether you love them, hate them, or love to hate them, you've probably seen these strange distorted people on your social media feed or YouTube in the past. Men and women who use synthol oil injected into their body parts to create the illusion of massive muscle. And we're not talking about realistic mass monsters here... we're talking about full blown cartoon-sized lumps across the body. Is this due to some addictive disorder or just plain stupid people doing stupid things? It's impossible to tell without deeper research but one question stands out for our industry - do synthol freaks give bodybuilding a bad name? True bodybuilders and fans know that these kind of people have no connection to professional bodybuilding. They hardly have any connection to the term bodybuilding whatsoever. But what about the average public? Do they blindly see these strange synthol abusers and use that as another mark against the "freakish" world of bodybuilding? Shawn Ray, Tifanny Urrea, and Mac Trucc dive in to decide just how much of a mark these strange sensational people make on the bodybuilding industry.

Tip: How to Look Good for the Ladies | T Nation

Even Frank Zane type physiques take last in a line up of far less muscled physiques when it comes to sex appeal. If your argument is that overly muscled guys are getting all the action at fitness expos I'd advise you to get out of the house once in a while. Grasp the very difficult idea that there are women existing outside of fitness. I know, it's crazy, but it's true. If you drop the name Jay Cutler around a female, she's more likely think you're talking about the quarterback, not the bodybuilder.

Why Is Combo Cardio So Effective? Most of the key benefits of combo cardio have to do with burning stored fat, but it also has muscle-building benefits. First, the high-intensity intervals not only burn calories while you’re doing them, but they also set you up with long-range fat-burning abilities by stimulating a huge EPOC effect. Because high-intensity intervals are hugely anaerobic, your body consumes oxygen—and, therefore, energy—at a much higher rate for many hours after your workout. The research differs and is still ongoing, but the general consensus is that the EPOC effect continues for at least 48 hours and possibly as long as 72 hours after your workout. That means your metabolism works at a much higher rate for as long as three days after your workout.

Tip: The Only Real Fat Loss Workout | T Nation

When it comes to fat loss, your nutritional habits have a bigger impact than training.
