10 Best Muscle-Building Ab Exercises

Let's come clean from the start: We're not here to sell you on the single "best ab exercise ever." Too many organizations and authors have tried that, and the profusion of "winners" out there can make it confusing—especially because the studies backing them are always limited in one way or another. A few years ago, it was the bicycle crunch. Then it was the traditional crunch. Then it was the pike, the plank, the roll-out... We could go on.

Tip: The Sweeping Deadlift for Strong Lats | T Nation

The sweeping deadlift is one of my favorite overall exercises. Basically, it's a deadlift (or snatch deadlift which involves the lats even more) where you attach a resistance band to the bar and a post in front of you. The band is actively pulling the bar away from you so you need to engage the lats to keep the bar close to your body.

The One Supplement You Can't Live Without | T Nation

It's hard to find a good supplement for fat loss that doesn't have stimulating effects. I'm very sensitive to certain stimulants and Indigo-3G® isn't a thermogenic; it doesn't contain any stimulants, therefore it doesn't cause the jitters or the crash that can come after it. It makes you feel like a machine in the gym. The muscle pumps are unreal and I don't experience any drops in energy during my training sessions.

Tip: How to Make Trashcan Chili | T Nation

Toss in a handful of spinach (fresh or frozen), bell pepper strips, okra, squash, and damn near anything else. This is an easy way to sneak in more nutrition, even if you dislike veggies. It's also an easy way to clean out your fridge of odds and ends. Got a leftover carrot? It goes in. A quarter bag of frozen zucchini? Into the pot it goes. A slice of cold pizza? Yeah, don't use that.

Tip: The Two Fats That Boost Testosterone | T Nation

If you're an athlete who wants to increase testosterone levels, make coconut oil or olive oil your main source(s) of fat. Cook with either of these oils, add them to your protein shakes, drizzle olive oil over your cooked vegetables, add coconut oil to your coffee, or even eat a tablespoon of either in-between meals, which, in addition to allowing you to produce more testosterone, will also help quell hunger.

Tip: Heavy Negatives & High-Rep Finishers | T Nation

Unfortunately, heavy negatives can also be quite dangerous to perform even with competent spotters. This is why I recommend the Power Rack Eccentric Potentiation (PREP) protocol. It's the safest, most effective, and also most practical method for doing heavy negatives. Here's one of my NFL athletes Jarius Wynn using it:

10 Workouts to Do on Chest Day

Dumbbell Incline Press x 12 (weight should be 65% one rep max) Kettlebell Flyes x 15 Lying Overhead Pullovers with Dumbbell x 10 (How to do it: Lie perpendicular on a flat bench with your shoulders on the surface, your hips off the bench, legs bent, feet flat on the floor, and head off the bench as well. Grab a dumbbell with both hands palming one end of the weight, holding it at arms-length over your chest. Keeping your arms straight, lower the weight behind your head, creating an arc. Exhale as you bring the weight back through that arc pattern.) Ab Rollouts x 10

Tip: Isolation Exercises vs. Big Lifts | T Nation

If you're wanting muscle growth, don't rely only on big compound exercises. Sure, compound multi-joint exercises offer the most bang-for-the-buck in terms of gaining usable strength, but that's not the main goal of someone wanting to build muscle. It's just a neat side effect of pursuing your main goal.

Blow Up Your Bench for a Massive Chest

Almost anyone who has stepped foot inside a gym has made the bench priority one at some point. After all, a big bench equals a big chest. And who doesn’t want a massive chest that’s the envy of all? So why has an exercise that was once an, ahem , benchmark for strength and size been kicked to the curb like yesterday’s outdated software? Most people will tell you that they steer clear of it for fear of a torn pec or rotator cuff injury. That’s too bad, because the bench press is still the big daddy of upper-body exercises — as long as it’s done the right way. That’s where we come in. On the following pages, you’ll find a step-by-step guide to performing this exercise for both monster chest growth and a jaw-dropping retort to the inevitable — and annoying — question, how much do you bench?

Get 25% Stronger in 12 Weeks

The third and final phase of the “25% Stronger” program helps you max out your strength levels by gradually decreasing the volume of your workouts while increasing the amount of weight you move. You’ll begin the last phase at the top end of the strength range (seven reps). Each week, you’ll perform fewer sets and reps - five of five, four of four and finally the last week in which you perform three sets of three - so your body is fresh for the final tests in Week 13.

4 ways to keep pushups from hurting your wrists

Pushups are, undeniably, one of the best exercises for building a rock-hard core and improving total-body conditioning. But as any military grunt or CrossFit devotee can tell you, if you’re going big on pushups, you need to take care of your wrists or you could be in for a world of pain.

Muscle detailing: The ultimate workout for a chiseled, v-tapered back

For 2-3 weeks, couple up a large muscle group (legs, back, chest) with a smaller muscle group (shoulders, arms, abs) or a push and a pull. Shoot for 1 day of rest between workouts. Cycle back onto your regular programming after the 2-3 weeks are up. Rest 30 seconds or less between sets.

Easy Gains for the Hardgainer

An individual who has a naturally “smaller” frame and lighter bone structure, and carries little body fat and muscle. Beginning your bodybuilding journey with this somatotype isn’t exactly ideal, but you could be in a less favorable position— as in, the polar opposite body type. Keep in mind, people’s somatotypes—ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph—are not cut and dry, meaning certain individuals can fall somewhere in the middle of a somatotype. First, a quick overview of the three somatotypes and their accompanying characteristics.

Feb '17 Photo/Video Check-In

Ha! Not sure what just happened but I thought I uploaded my pic. I sure don't see it anywhere tho, lol. If I end up having any luck this will be my post that goes with it. I'm currently in the middle of a lean bulk but have a bit of mostly midsection bf I'm going to be looking forward to loosing once I start my spring/summer '17 cut. Once I strip down I figure that my pecs will stand out better where they meet the top of my abs. Hope to see more vascularity as well, which generally comes with me having lower bf%. Thanks for being patient with this computer (not so savvy) guy. lol. 20170201_160227.jpg2560x1600 914 KB

Should Training Target Fiber Types?

Researchers from Ohio University compared three different rep schemes (high = 20–28 reps, intermediate = 9–11 reps, low = 3–5 reps) for their effects on muscle-fiber hypertrophy. They demonstrated that the degree of hypertrophy of all fiber types was dependent on the weight loads used, with heavier weight producing greater hypertrophy in all fiber types.

21
Military Presses vs. Behind-the-Neck Barbell Presses

The military press is the purest and the most basic shoulder exercise possible. More specific movements, such as various raises, are good for developing individual deltoid heads, and dumbbell presses are excellent for maximizing the size of the deltoid complex, but only military presses provide the compound distribution of stresses necessary for overall shoulder width and thickness. A press behind the neck brings your deltoids inward,  but a press with a bar in front keeps your shoulders wide and requires the muscle groups of both deltoids to contract in a compound manner, along with your upper back, traps and upper pecs.

Dorian Yates' 6 Rules for Building a Big Back Fast

A great back is a rarity, because it’s the hardest part of the body to reach with a resistance exercise. Simple pulling doesn’t do the job, because the force has to first pass through the arms, shoulders and lower back. What you must do is concentrate the squeeze into that portion of your back for which the exercise is intended. During chinups, feel the burn in your lats, rhomboids and upper back. When performing barbell rows, feel it in your lats and middle back. For deadlifts, feel it in your spinal erectors, lats and traps. Most of all, love that feeling. -  FLEX

The 10 greatest chest press variations of all time

Muscles worked: Pectoralis major, anterior and lateral deltoids, and triceps. "The main difference between the incline bench press and the flat bench press is the incline promotes more upper pectoralis major and shoulder development,” Reames says. This is because you’re putting more stress on your upper pecs and anterior deltoids. Plus, it’s easier to get in and out of position than when you’re doing the flat bench version.   How to do it: You’re going to follow the same set of instructions as you did for the dmbbell flat bench press. Begin seated on the incline bench with a dumbbell in each hand resting just above your knees. Lie down on the bench and position the dumbbells so your palms are facing each other. Next, bring the dumbbells up—one at a time—so you’re holding them in front of you shoulder-width apart. Now, rotate your wrists forward so your palms are facing away from you and lower the dumbbells so they’re at the sides of your chest, creating 90-degree angles. Exhale and use your chest to push the dumbbells up. Lock you arms at the top of the lift and squeeze your pecs, holding for a few beats, before slowly lowering back down.

15 Most Important Exercises For Men

Every gym-goer in the world has been asked “Whaddya bench?” at least once. This move is responsible for developing powerful, well-defined pecs, shoulders, and triceps, which lead to a more commanding presence, with or without a shirt on. Combine with that the muscle-building effects of the testosterone this move releases and all you have left to do is watch your “little black book” fill up.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, February 4, 2017

Saturday, February 4, 2017 - You can't wait to make the most of the upcoming weekend, whether you're spicing up your romantic life or singing karaoke with your best buds. Your heart is set on celebrating life's pleasures, but be aware that things you say in the heat of passion might weave webs which could trip you later. Pacing yourself is a smart strategy if you want the good times to last. The key to keeping your equilibrium is knowing when you've lost it. Counterbalance playtime with self-care to maintain optimum health.

The 10x10 shred extension workouts

Whether you've heard of it or not, German Volume Training, or GVT for short, has been around the weightlifting world since the 70s. The idea between GVT is to overload your muscles with extreme volume, but with fewer exercises. The traditional setup you'd see would most likely be three main, compound exercises performed for a total of 10 sets at 10 repetitions each. Between each set you'd see a modest amount of rest—roughly a minute or two. And, as expected, the amount of weight used would need to be on the lighter side or else you'll burn out early. On paper, it doesn't sound too bad, but you'll soon realize that 300 reps is a ton of reps, and even more so when they are big-boy exercises. You may also see a couple isolation exercises thrown in for 3 sets at 10 repetitions each. For this particular mini-plan, we've modified traditional GVT. It's somewhat of a mutant.

The way we see it, there are 12 fundamentals - laws, if you will - that are all you need to shed that unwanted blubber from your midsection and elsewhere. Most of them are nutrition-driven, but training comes into play as well. Your mass-gaining phase is over for the time being; now it's time to get lean.

Utilizing short and controlled fasts to get lean has become more and more popular. While some evidence supports it, most hypertrophy-minded people can’t swallow the idea of going that long without protein. A recent study from China shows that supplementing with L-carnitine while fasting preserves muscles mass and promotes fat burning. Subjects were give two grams of carnitine twice a day via injection. At the end of the experiment, the carnitine group lost more centimeters from their waist than the placebo group.
