The No-Caffeine Pre-Workout Boost - Born Fitness

What does it all mean? Well, get ready for a trip to the farmer’s market. Consuming 500 g (a little over a pound—yes a pound) of beets, radishes, or any leafy green vegetable, including lettuce, rocket, spinach, crown daisy, and swiss chard will provide enough nitrates for you to enjoy the benefits during your next workout. Yeah, it’s a lot of greens, but not that far from what you’ll find in many greens juices.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, February 5, 2015

Friday, February 6, 2015 - Although you may be an optimistic person, today you take things to a new level and are a case study in the power of positive thinking. But even if you believe the world is your playground, you're still being tugged in opposite directions. On one hand, you're ready to bail on your responsibilities and spend the day in the pursuit of pleasure. On the other hand, you are fully aware of the needs of those around you and are willing to do whatever you must to help them. Your altruism is admirable but your mission is to find a way to merge the two divergent paths into one.

4 Ways to Use Alternating Overhead Presses

Adding weight to your presses isn’t the only way to dial up the intensity. Here’s how alternating presses can trigger new growth while increasing safety.

Get on Board for a Bigger Bench

Huge overload can take place with board presses because they allow you to lift more than your one-rep max. The bench press has an ascending strength curve, meaning the closer the barbell is to lockout the more force production is possible; in other words, you are weakest at the bottom and strongest at the top.

The Tim Ferriss Show

I like Tim, but felt that episode 1 was a bit scattered and haphazard in its flow. Tim needs to plan out the interviews a bit better. He did this in episode 2, to his credit. I felt that vulgarity was being used simply as a crutch and did not add anything tangible to the show. I noted that Tim was dropping f-bombs while Kevin stole the show and remained eloquent throughout episode #1. I will keep listening, but only if Tim puts a little more focused attention on these Podcasts.

Stay Honest for Bigger Biceps

"People tend to bring their elbows forward for two simple reasons," says Ernesto Osorio, CSCS, a personal trainer with One2One Fitness in Houston. "The first is trying to achieve a greater peak contraction of the biceps. The second reason is that of pride and ego - you can typically use more weight when you're not isolating the target muscle, a nice way of saying you're cheating. And while it's okay to occasionally use cheating techniques to spark growth, doing so on every rep can hamper your progress.

Best Breakfasts for Weight Loss

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day—as if you haven't heard that before. But what you may not know is that eating breakfast is essential for successful weight loss. "It's like putting logs on a wood-burning stove. You need that initial input of fuel to get your metabolism going for the day," says Milton Stokes, R.D., author of Flat Belly Diet! For Men . Shoot for 400 to 600 calories within an hour of waking up, with an emphasis on nutrients that will leave you satisfied for hours: protein healthy fats, and fiber. Try these popular options, designed specifically to boost calorie burn.

The Ultimate Warmup for Lifting Heavy

To  lift heavy weights , break records, and add slabs of muscle to your frame, you’ll need a great warmup to unlock your full potential before every workout. We don’t mean a 5-minute treadmill jog and some toe-touches followed by a 300-pound deadlift. This comprehensive warmup will get your heart pumping and muscles ready to grow fast.

Five Fast Lunches to Build More Muscle

When the 18th-century British Earl of Sandwich asked his servants to bring him a piece of meat held between two slices of bread, he definitely stumbled onto something. Not only, as legend has it, did he invent the sandwich, he also inadvertently requested the ideal post- workout meal—a simple combination of protein and carbohydrates, which research shows spurs greater muscle growth than protein alone. But with a little knowledge (and some condiments—come on, Earl!) you can make this portable muscle meal even more effective. Reach for these easy-to-prepare recipes to turn steak, lamb, chicken—and even an old can of cranberry sauce—into a gourmet meal fit for a king. Or at least an earl—whatever that is.

One-Arm Lat Pulldown

Training bilaterally, as in with a fixed barbell or long bar attachment, can have the effect of allowing the stronger side of your body do slightly more work than the weaker one, creating a visual imbalance in your musculature.

3 Tips to Get Rid of Back Pain

It sounds strange, but improving the range of motion you can achieve at the shoulder joint can actually reduce low back stress. Whenever you press something overhead or reach above the body to pull something down from above, you’re extending the shoulder joint through a long range of motion. A person with poor mobility may try to compensate for limited ROM by placing their back into extension. This can cause spinal compression, pull the hips forward and cause back pain.

Fifteen Simple Strategies for Kicking Stress

Med Ball Ab Blast

The ab workout below should be performed at least once a week. It’s best to work your way through it with the help of a partner, but it’s possible to perform variations of the catch-and-throw exercises against a wall, if necessary. To properly execute the around-the-world catch and throw, assume the top position of a crunch, with your upper torso at approximately a 45-degree angle to the floor, and tension in your abs. Have your partner move from side to side, lightly tossing you the ball as you statically hold your position, catch the ball and throw it back.

Bake Your Own Pizza Bagel Bites

Frozen pizza bagel “bites” are genius, in theory. Pizza is one of the planet’s greatest culinary creations. Bagels are delicious, too. Combined together, especially in handy microwaveable snack form, pizza bagels should take on a Voltron -like greatness. In practice, however, frozen pizza bagel bites only disappoint. Once you unveil the bagels from their plastic packaging, you’re greeted with cubes of sad cheese and a swipe of rust-red sauce atop a bagel the consistency of the cardboard box it came in. Should you choose to ignore these warning signs and cook the pizza bagels anyway, you face one of two fates. The first, born from undercooking, leaves the bagels frosty in the center. This may cause you to return the bagels to the microwave, but at this point you’re far more likely to just continue eating them lest you risk the other fate. The second, born from overcooking, turns the cheese into magma capable of searing the skin on the roof of your mouth. After doing so, you are then left to absentmindedly tongue the scarred spot throughout the week as a constant reminder of your snacking stupidity.

10 Exercise Lessons Learned the Hard Way So You Don't Have To

We like to think about the guy who’s never stepped foot in the gym, and provide basic, rudimentary material, while also speaking to our long-time reader who’s in the gym or working out three, four, or five+ days per week.

Does Pot Make You A Better Athlete?

The first tingle of  THC  hits him as he's stretching his calves.  “I’m locked in,” he says, squishing two headphone buds into his ears. “This is going to be a great pace.”  The sun hasn’t yet risen over Colorado’s Front Range peaks, but Cliff D. (who asked not to be named), like many working-stiff triathletes, juggles a career—he’s a full-time strength and conditioning coach—with his own training and racing, and that means plenty of predawn workouts. But unlike the other guys circling Denver’s Washington Park in the early hours, Cliff has just eaten an energy bar that contains enough marijuana to numb a small elephant. To be precise, the homemade bar was packed with about 30 milligrams of the plant’s psychoactive chemical, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). For a newbie pot  smoker , the THC dose would be a knockout punch. For Cliff, that’s just breakfast.  Standing 5'6", Cliff, 39, a hardcore athlete and former Division I soccer player who trains upward of 23 hours a week, has a thick chest and lean, muscular arms and legs. A lattice of tattoos peeks from below his sleeves, and his skin is tanned an even olive brown.

Do High Protein Diets Cause Early Death? - Born Fitness

Let’s get the worst news out of the way. It’s irresponsible to blindly claim, “High protein leads to premature death.” Or say it’s as bad as smoking. That’s not what the study found. If it were true I’d run around the streets screaming at the top of my lungs, and try and go door-to-door and let the world know I’d made a mistake. But that’s not the case. Why? For starters, the study was epidemiological, meaning the design made it impossible to make that type of claim. For those of you who don’t have a background in research (or simply don’t care), this how these studies work: They take information (“data”) after the fact and then try to draw conclusions.

The Most Common Workout Mistake - Born Fitness

As you know (and have experienced) I am not only big on warmups, but I consider the Warmup the cornerstone of Training for Warriors training. A common mistake in training, however, is to use either an inadequate or no warmup at all before training.  Since a trainee often thinks training itself is great at getting the heart rate up and increases core temperature, they often skip a warmup completely and jump head-first into the session. In most of the training books and DVDs out there, a warmup is quickly glazed over as if it is unimportant. This is definitely not the case and unfortunately sets the tone as if it doesn’t count.

6 "Unhealthy" Foods That Actually Help You Slim Down | Eat This Not That

No one will ever forget when Justin Bieber egged his neighbor’s house and caused $20,000 worth of damage. In fact, even after the Beibs’ racey new “grown-up” Calvin Klein ads surfaced, his childish stunt was still a primary topic of conversation among reporters and fans. It’s no surprise, really. After someone (or something) has been seen in a negative light, people aren’t apt to sway their opinion—no matter how strong the rebranding effort may be. And the reputations of foods are no different. Once something has been dubbed an “unhealthy” or “fattening” choice, many health-minded folks won’t think twice before leaving it in the dust. But not all foods deserve their bad reputations! There are a number of nutrient-packed eats that won’t pack on the pounds like we once thought. In fact, a number of them can help the scale tip in your favor. Learn the truth about some of these misunderstood foods below—we’re hoping we can convince you to take at least a few of them off your “do not eat” list.

10 Rules to Control Your Appetite

As a bodybuilder, you probably already know about several diet strategies for getting ripped to the bone. Eating fewer carbs, consuming less fat and performing a lot of cardio are headliners that grab attention. One of the simplest and most overlooked aspects of controlling your bodyfat, however, boils down to curbing your appetite. When you can shut down the desire to eat or cheat, then stripping away bodyfat becomes much easier. Here are some of the best ways to manage your appetite when you’re trying to manage your bodyfat.

Face The Fats

Want to show your ticker some love? Infuse your diet with monounsaturated fat. It’s one of the major lynchpins in the vaunted Mediterranean diet, and studies have found that consuming adequate amounts of these fats can slash heart disease risk by lowering blood pressure as well as increasing levels of good cholesterol and decreasing amounts of harmful triglycerides circulating through your blood. Studies also suggest that a monounsaturated-fat-rich diet can reduce the glycemic load of the diet, which can reduce the risk for diabetes and fat gain by improving blood sugar numbers. Further, a 2013 study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that replacing some of the palmitic acid, the main saturated fat found in dairy, beef and other animal-based foods, with monounsaturated fats like oleic acid can increase resting energy expenditure, which may help you ditch some of that extra padding on your midriff. 

Blood Sugar Balancing

If you have trouble staying lean when you are following a high-calorie bulking diet, then avoid sugar and stick with slower-burning carbs, such as oats, Cream of Rye cereal, rye bread, whole-grain bread and yams. If you are a bodybuilder with a higher percentage of bodyfat, you’ll tend to experience greater swings in sugar levels — sugar tends to whisk in and out of blood too quickly. That can leave you weak and tired, as well as elevate catabolic (muscle-wasting) hormones. If you have a fast metabolism and tend to remain lean when bulking, you can choose whatever carbohydrates you prefer at most times of the day. Lean bodybuilders naturally maintain more stable blood sugar levels, and steadier levels help build nearly fat-free muscle.

Tips for Relieving Muscle Soreness

MEET DOMS What you're feeling anywhere from 12-48 hours after a workout is something specialists in such matters refer to as DOMS, or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. It results from microscopic tears within muscle tissues, which is what you're creating when you workout. The pain response is the body's way of signaling to you that repair work is going on and that you'd best leave it be for a few days. Your body is smart like that, and it always lets you know when it's time to get back to it, by way of alleviating the soreness.

Understanding Fasted Cardio and Fat Loss - Born Fitness

Research shows that if you want to really accelerate the fat burning process with cardio, you need to do it at low intensities. But it’s not just low intensity—it’s like a crawl through the desert. We’re talking about 2 hours slogging away on a slow walk, and even then it’s limited. And who has 2 hours per day just for cardio?

5 Ways to Bolster Your Plank for a Stronger Core

Grab a dumbbell or a kettlebell that would be demanding to carry in only one hand for about forty yards. Make sure to maintain superb posture at all times as you walk that distance. Switch hands and repeat. The reason this works so well is the opposite side core is trying to dynamically stabilize the spine while you hold the weight and move with it. Makes sense why it is so hard to carry that baggage through the airport with one hand. Those deep core muscles have to stabilize and work to help support your body just like a plank. The suitcase carry is by far the most functional type of plank to improve dynamic stabilization. Give it a shot and you will see the benefits in no time.


If you thought essential fatty acids were a settled subject, think again. A new study just presented at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (N.S.C.A.) conference suggests that sports nutrition scientists have long been missing the mark on EFAs. It proposes that trained athletes looking to increase muscle mass, strength, and anaerobic power would benefit by supplementing an omega-6 called arachidonic acid (ARA). This advice is, of course, in stark contrast with the traditional recommendations for omega-3 supplements. How did we discover the importance of this omega fat, and what does this new information mean for athletes and everyday fitness enthusiasts? As one of the scientists driving and funding this research, FLEX has asked me to come by and bring everyone up to date.

Weight Training for Your Body Type

The same kind of training will not work for every body type. Just as different trees require differing amounts of water and sunlight, differing body types require different stimuli in different amounts. No one program can effectively train all three body types. Some people need lower reps, and more rest, while others need higher reps and shorter rest periods. It all depends on you and your body.
