Deadlifts have been called the single best bodybuilding exercise and crowned as the "King of Mass Builders." It takes a lot of muscle to do them, but they're not something you want to just muscle through. Five experts chime in on how to do deadlifts the right way.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, February 18, 2018

Sunday, February 18, 2018 - A quiet day at home is exactly what the doctor ordered today. In fact, a break from your routine could be more rejuvenating than you expect. But it’s hard to ignore your creative urge, so find a way to integrate it into your staycation. Honoring your drive to make something tangible by the end of the day is the frosting on the cake. A conscious retreat from the noisy humdrum of your social life can also be productive if you balance your time between work and play.

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.

Tip: Stop Bouncing Your Deadlifts | T Nation

The prime movers are relaxed and they must suddenly contract all-out to absorb the weight and pull it up. This is a tremendous shock for the body, and it's even worse because you'll be in a bad posture most of the time. Since the glutes are harder to recruit, the lower back and hams will take the brunt of the stress. Hello, lower back injury or hamstring pull!

The History Of Arnold Classic Champions - Part 2 (2005-2017) | Arnold Classic Moments

Shawn Ray continues his breakdown of every Arnold Classic champion up to 2017. Shawn Ray returns for part two of this two part video special recounting and breaking down every single Arnold Classic champion from 1989 to the present. This second installment covers the latter half of the event's long and prestigious history - specifically 2005 to 2017. With the sport further evolving, these later years of the Arnold Classic competition is most notable for how it lead the charge towards changing how the world looked at mass monsters and judged physiques. Not only did Cedric McMillan's work on stage lead the way for the introduction of the Classic Physique division (mostly because of Arnold Schwarzenegger's comments about Cedric's physique and how he should have won) - but the competition also changed policy to put scored judging on the actual art of the posing routine. This brings back the artistry behind posing and will perhaps further change the way we see routines in future years. See the complete evolution and rundown of the best champions the Arnold Classic had to offer in the full video above!

However, not many of us are willing to eat the amounts of food it would take to get us to a gram of magnesium (e.g., about 10 cups of seaweed). Secondly, there's no way of guaranteeing the exact amount of magnesium you'd be getting from these foods since many otherwise nutrient-rich foods are actually nutrient poor because of variabilities in soil and growing methods.

The China Study author also beats up on casein, which he describes as a potent carcinogen. The trouble is, human breast milk contains a sizeable amount of casein. As nutritionist Denise Minger writes, "Should women stop breastfeeding to reduce their children's exposure to casein? Did nature really muck it up that much? Are children who are weaned later in life at increased risk for cancer, due to a longer exposure time to the casein in their mothers' milk?

7 Ways to Scare Your Body Into Getting Stronger | T Nation

A simple way to do this is to cut your work sets in half for every muscle and/or exercise that you're not specializing in. This won't be enough work to force those muscles to improve, but it will allow you to maintain them. The more experienced you become, the more you'll need to focus your efforts on one area at a time.

10 Ways to Spice Up Your Sex Life

Tip: Build Quads & Glutes, Even With a Bad Back | T Nation

Don't be concerned that you won't stress the legs enough. Besides training the quads and glutes, this exercise will force you to integrate your whole body. You can also push with more power and even run with the sled, but going slow and controlled is the first variation you should try when substituting the squat.

9 Ways to Increase Sexual Stamina

Stamina is a hot topic when it comes to men and sex. If one were to believe everything written on the web, a man who can last a long time in bed is the gold standard of doing it. For some people, long sessions in the sack are exactly what they need to feel satisfied but not everyone defines stamina the same way and, what’s more, for many, it doesn’t hardly matter. Anyone who wants to actually improve their performance in bed should think more holistically because sex isn’t something that can be separated from the rest of life.

41 2018 Arnold Classic - Is Cedric McMillan the 2nd Coming of Arnold?

Certainly, you have heard the various and often-repetitive laments and complaints about modern-day bodybuilding and the physiques that represent the top echelon of the sport now. Both older fans as well as younger ones who know their bodybuilding history feel that the beauty and aesthetics that once made the sport great have given way to bulky, distorted caricatures. Today’s champions are cookie-cutter, overblown grotesqueries with bloated bellies and lumpy body parts, with one nearly indistinguishable from the next. Maybe this is true in many cases. But then there is Cedric McMillan. Cedric doesn’t look like anyone else competing today. With his classic shape, marked by sweeping, round muscle bellies, a perfect structure and a stunning V-taper, McMillan’s physique is far more reminiscent of the greats of a bygone era. To be more specific, it’s eerily similar in many ways to that of the great seven-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger, who not coincidentally, is a fan of Cedric’s and sees him as the ideal body to represent the sport he still loves passionately and promotes on six continents.

Tip: The Motorcycle Row for Bigger Lats | T Nation

Simply stand in front of a seated row machine and grab the bar. Bend forward at the waist, as if you're on a crotch rocket. Keeping that same low position, row to about the bellybutton area. Really stretch the lats at the bottom portion of the movement, using the full range of motion. No half reps!

The Lost Art Of Bodybuilding Posing | Bodybuilding Chronicles

This is why you should care more about bodybuilding posing. There seems to be a huge disconnect in bodybuilding these days - and that has to do with the art of bodybuilding posing. As physiques have become more massive and the expectation has changed as to what the ideal physique should be in Men's Open... so too has the expectation changed for posing in the sport. So long as the mandatory poses are hit on point then there's no need for the "artistry" of the pose. The Golden Era was a time when the mandatory poses were hit but there was also an art in between each pose. An exciting journey of movement in tune to the music that lead the audience's eyes from pose to pose flawlessly. Times have changed and while the Arnold Classic competitions have changed their rules recently to focus scoring more on posing... things are still very different from the way it used to be. The biggest question is - do the fans really want the art of the pose? Or is the ever pushing boundaries of mass monster physiques enough to keep their interest? Shawn Ray breaks down the lost art of posing and talks about how, whether fans know they want it or not, it's an important part becoming a legendary competitor.
