Tip: Do You Need to Do Front Raises? | T Nation

In practical terms, you don't need to do exercises like dumbbell front raises if you've already been doing a few compound pressing exercises of different angles, especially exercises like incline presses and overhead presses.

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.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, January 13, 2018

Saturday, January 13, 2018 - People may be amused but rarely shocked when you do something that they would never dream of doing. Your brute honesty and bald antics are expected, yet you can go too far in your drive for authenticity today. Others might not realize that your actions represent your exploration of new ideas and not a firm conviction. Someone may try on different styles to see which clothes make the best appearance. You are putting on a variety of personalities now, so you can decide which one serves you the best. Author Lisa Mangum wrote, “Sometimes wearing a mask is the best way to show our true selves.”

Tip: Practice Hara Hachi Bu | T Nation

It takes your mind about 20 minutes to receive the signals from your stomach that you're full. So eliminating distractions will help you slow down, increase awareness, and eat until you're satisfied, not stuffed. It also helps to prevent you from random cookie binges by encouraging you to eat at set times and with others, rather than snacking mindlessly on whatever's within reach.

Breast Implants For Girls Who Lift | T Nation

My surgeon turned down women who wanted to look like they were shoplifting basketballs. Your surgeon may have you bring in pictures of tatas you admire. I did that, but while I was under the knife, he tested out different sizes inside of me to see what would look the most proportional with my frame. Find a doctor who routinely does that.

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.

How Joe Weider Cultivated The Greatest Bodybuilders Of All Time | Bodybuilding Chronicles

Exploring how Joe Weider discovered and shaped Shawn Ray... and countless other bodybuilding greats. To say that Joe Weider was the godfather of bodybuilding would be an understatement. Joe Weider essentially IS bodybuilding - he's the man that shaped exactly what it is today. He brought us the athletes, the magazines, and the kind of tone that still reverberates throughout the bodybuilding industry even now.

That's why in this week's episode of Bodybuilding Chronicles, Shawn Ray shares a play by play of every single moment that led up to, and through, his relationship working with Joe Weider. In this epic first hand retelling of Weider's discovery of Shawn - get the most intimate and detailed understanding of Joe Weider possible. It will open your eyes on exactly how and why Joe Weider created and discovered some of the most legendary bodybuilders the world has ever seen... bodybuilders that will continue to be discussed and known for decades and decades past today.

Tip: The Surprising Truth About Negatives | T Nation

Experientially at least, those of us who've been training and studying for a long time can tell you that controlling the eccentric portion of a movement tends to be more important to hypertrophy. And when we talk about "controlling" the movement, we're not implying that it always has to be a slow lowering of the weight, just controlled.

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.

Tip: The Only Real Fat Loss Workout | T Nation

When it comes to fat loss, your nutritional habits have a bigger impact than training. In fact, weight training or metabolic conditioning routines that create massive energy deficits often stimulate the appetite so much that they cause you believe that you somehow "earned" the salted caramel cheesecake.

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.

Sleep Practices for Better Performance, Health, and Well-Being

Going to bed at approximately the same time each night aids the circadian rhythm. I personally experience better sleep when I consistently get to bed at the same time, typically resulting in waking just before my alarm goes off (set at eight hours) and feeling rested. Living in a household of three teenage girls means my sleep is regularly interrupted when they get home on weekends or loudly rummage for food in the kitchen at night. Grey noise is a worthy adjunct. I sometimes sleep with Bose noise-canceling headphones or a fan running to block out noise disturbances. This is why sleep apnea, when breathing stops multiple times at night, is so dangerous, due to the continuously disruptive nature of a person’s sleep.

It's better to be single, according to science

Still, DePaulo acknowledged that research on the psychological benefits of being single is lacking. While combing through 814 studies on singles, she discovered that most of them used singles only as a comparison group to learn about married people, not singledom.
