The Keto Diet Circa 1968 • Zach Even-Esh

Recently I was gifted with yet another BIG box of old school magazines. Health & Strength, IronMan, Muscle Builder & Power..... These magazines are gold and it's amazing how I find information from 40-60 years ago that are sometimes brought forward today as if someone invented them. I honestly feel much of today's training is …

10 Best Lifts for Mass - Dennis Wolf | 2018 Arnold Classic

For the first 12 years he trained, Wolf would bench press at nearly every chest workout. In more recent years, he has switched to more dumbbells and machines, yet still keeps the bench press in his rotation. “I bench press once a month now, and even then I don’t like to go very heavy.” Of course, four good sets of 10-12 reps with 315 would be considered very heavy by plenty of guys, but it’s not a tendon-straining amount of iron for the Big Bad Wolf, and that’s the whole point. “I like to do the reps in very good form, with a solid squeeze of the pecs at the top of each rep and a good stretch as I lower the bar slowly.” And even though he doesn’t do it as often anymore, Dennis still recommends that beginners pay their dues on it. “It’s the absolute best exercise to build a foundation with. Just be sure you use it the right way to build muscle, not just worrying about how much weight you use and doing just a couple of reps.”

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, February 17, 2018

Saturday, February 17, 2018 - You seem to always know what you are doing and how your current actions feed into your grand plan. However, deceptive Neptune squares contentious Mars today, encouraging you to instigate an argument. However, you might be fighting with windmills, creating imaginary opponents so you can demonstrate your ability to overcome adversity. If you’re trying to prove something to others, just let your actions speak. If you’re trying to prove something to yourself, look for your answers within rather than courting the approval of everyone else.

Tip: Eat More, Get Ripped | T Nation

Restricting calories, or burning more through exercise, is really the only way to lose fat. No matter the diet plan, they all have you cutting back on calories one way or another. But if you've been reducing calories for months and the fat loss has come to a halt, then it's time to start reverse dieting.

Episode 8: Should Steroids Be Legalized? | The Breakdown

The legendary John Brown talks teenage bodybuilders using steroids and if it should be legalized for adults. The legendary bodybuilder who changed the game when it comes to posing in the sport, John Brown, joins Shawn Ray and Tifanny Urrea on The Breakdown to discuss his bodybuilding past, his family's fame now found through his three talented football player sons, and also the current state of bodybuilding. More specifically, John Brown weights in on the current state of steroids in bodybuilding, the rise of teenage steroid use, and how it compares to bodybuilding in the past. It's no secret that steroids is used by some athletes in every single sport - but how does this affect the young kids that will become the future generation of athletes? Will the use of steroids only increase as more kids become inspired by the incredible feats that are found, normally later, to be achieved through steroids?

The 16:8 Fasting Diet | T Nation

Let me emphasize that nutrient timing when going into training fasted or semi-fasted (you break your fast about 15 minutes prior to training here), becomes more important than training in a fed state, where you've eaten 90-120 minutes prior to training. In a fed state, getting in a good meal an hour or two after training works just fine. If you choose to train in the manner above, I highly recommend this protocol because the selected nutrients are ones that get through the digestive tract rapidly and into the cells very quickly.

21 The Mistake That Was Vince McMahon’s World Bodybuilding Federation | Bodybuilding Chronicles

Vince McMahon tried to bring WWE antics and big money to bodybuilding. No matter how large bodybuilding has become - it has always been a niche sport. While the prize money at major competitions has increased and the amount of divisions, athletes, and fans has increased year after year... bodybuilding is still decidedly not mainstream. Vince McMahon tried to change that by creating the World Bodybuilding Federation (or WBF) - bringing the kind of fireworks and over the top antics that you see in the WWE. With the gigantic financial backing of his successful wrestling business - McMahon was dead set on turning bodybuilding into the next WWE... but it didn't last. Shawn Ray was one such bodybuilder approached by Vince McMahon to sign onto a contract. Shawn ultimately didn't bite - but in this episode of Bodybuilding Chronicles Shawn reveals what it was like behind the scenes at the WBF, how it temporarily threatened the IFBB, and the reason it ultimately failed.

Lifters Over 30 Need to Get Real | T Nation

A lot of coaches say that lifting weights for higher reps makes you more prone to injury. In the case of training methodologies that have you racing the clock, it's true. But sets of 10-12 or even 15 reps of a compound movement shouldn't be outside the vocabulary of a recreational lifter who has his health and wellness first in mind, along with building plenty of muscle and strength.

10 Great Food Hacks for Lifters | T Nation

I'd have 8 scoops of Plazma™ during training sessions (and even just throughout the day) to keep getting more quality carbs and protein in. This allowed me to be consistent with 800-1100 grams of carbs a day and 350 grams of protein for most of my gaining season. For someone who doesn't like to eat a ton, it was priceless. And I grow better on liquid food than solid food. – Amit Sapir

You might have a low back that's barking at you, your knees might be aching, or even your shoulders and elbows might be hurting. All of the exercises have their own specific reason for being a good alternative.
