Top 10 Fitness Industry Charlatans - Healthy Living, Heavy Lifting

Again, I say… Anyone that eats more than 2 bananas a day will lose weight due to pooping their brains out. Also, her stomach looks caved in actually, and that’s how stomachs look when someone is fasting way too much. Thanks for this awesome write up. For me, I usually avoid any fitness gurus, and just try to stick to what my doctor says. For small-framed women like me, weight bearing exercise is vital to avoid my bones getting fragile, and regular cardio will keep my digestive, cardiac, pulmonary, and other vital systems functioning properly. (I’m super lazy, but I know their advice is legit.) And I grow a lot of my own veggies in the summertime. I’ve never wanted to look like a fitness model, I just want to have energy to live my life how I see fit, and good health to stick around for it.

Ask the Experts: How Many Rest Days Do I need between strength workouts

A: “Proper rest allows muscles to grow and become stronger. If you shortchange yourself, you’ll hamper results while increasing injury risk,” says Hers technical adviser Gino Caccavale. You need at least 48 hours between each body part to fully recover from training. If you lift every day, focus on one muscle group each workout and train the opposing muscle group the next day. And don’t forget actual rest! Muscles repair during sleep, so it’s just as important to get enough rest at night.

Six Deadly Diet Sins

Solution: During bodyfat reducing phases, try a four-on/one-off approach. Diet strictly for four days, eating 1 g of carbs per pound of bodyweight daily and taking in no carbs at each day'’s final meal. On the fifth day, take a break from dieting. Dramatically increase carb intake, up to as much as 3 grams per pound of bodyweight on that day. The higher carb intake not only will provide much-needed energy, but it will also prevent a drop in metabolic rate.

5 Ways to Eat for Strength

You'd probably like to think that lifting big weight is simply a matter of big muscles —that if you have hulking lats, you can row a barbell loaded with clanking plates until next Thursday. However, if you're not fueling your body properly, you'll find out in a hurry just how shortsighted that philosophy is. You've probably heard the analogy before: your musculature is like a car—if you fuel it with junk, it'll perform like junk. That is absolutely true when it comes to training for strength . If you're looking to move the most weight possible, then you're going to have to make sure that your muscles are performing like they're running on jet fuel, not 87 octane from your discount, corner gas station. Here are five ways to make sure your body is firing on all cylinders each time you step up to the rack, bench or platform for a big lift.

The Best Moves for a Bigger Back: Part 1

Sumo deadlifts, conventional deadlifts , beyond the range (from a deficit), rack pulls - it doesn’t matter, just do them. The back not only works antagonistically to stabilize the torso (and spine) it works to lock out the weight to finish the movement. Deadlifts, by definition, are an exercise where you can move big weight .

10-Minute Treadmill Blast

When high-intensity interval training (HIIT) came along and gained popularity as the best way to burn fat while holding on to muscle, people started becoming disillusioned with their treadmills. Those long speed walks on an incline – which nobody really enjoyed to begin with – suddenly became less appealing. But that doesn’t mean that the treadmill itself as obsolete. On its own, the treadmill is a very effective fat-fighting tool. By applying high-intensity principles to your next treadmill workout, you can increase the amount of fat you’re burning per session – in far less time.

Immediate Strength Boost

Most bodybuilders think that dehydration is something that only marathon runners need to worry about. Not so. The research showing that dehydration decreased strength by 10% was done with subjects losing just 1.5% of their bodyweight. That’s just over 2 pounds of bodyweight for a 180-pound guy. Does your weight fluctuate from day to day by a couple of pounds? You’d better believe it. And when it’s down by just that little amount, your strength may drop by as much as 10%. Think of it this way: staying well hydrated could increase your strength immediately by 10%! To stay hydrated, drink about 1 gallon of water per day.

Avoid These Six Mistakes In the Gym

Considering those six rules, here’s an important caveat: just because someone at your gym, or even a pro bodybuilder like me, tells you to do something, that’s no reason to follow his every move. Analyze the advice you receive as you apply it to yourself, and don’t follow a routine or diet endlessly if you’re not seeing tangible results. That’s not to say you should haphazardly switch directions at every sign of a plateau — far from it. But be ready to tweak your approach while evaluating its effects.

7 Protein-Packed and Carb-Rich Foods

Protein isn't the only thing you need to gain muscle mass . Don't be afraid of the carbs. But before you reach for a loaf of bread , here are seven nutrient-packed foods that give you the dose of protein and carbs that you need to get big. And they're all readily accessible at your local supermarket.

8 Reasons no one cares you’re tired: Fighting fatigue in athletic performance - Positive Performance Training

Pushing the limits can be physically, mentally, and/or emotionally tough, but that’s the beauty of sports! Pushing those limits on a daily basis is necessary to become the best version of you. It’s inevitable that in pursuit of your best YOU, you’re going to get tired, so change your attitude towards fatigue. When you feel tired and want to stay in bed—or just want to get through practice without giving it your all—remember that this is what you work for, this is what all champions feel when they’re trying to reach their full potential.

The Worst Muscle & Fitness Covers of All Time

Not every issue can be a home run and in 75 years we were bound to have some atrocious, cheesy and lousy covers.

Pre and Post Workout Nutrition for Bodybuilders

Pre- and postworkout are the most important times to eat and supplement for maximum gains. Here, we focus on the basics — protein and carbs, the two most critical nutrients of your pre- and post-workout meals — and break them down into three categories: gold (best), silver (second best) and bronze (you get the point).

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Training Heavy

Every great bodybuilder I know started out with basic movements and trained them very heavy. Franco Columbu was a world-class powerlifter; Sergio Oliva was on Cuba’s Olympic weightlifting team. I competed in both of these sports while bodybuilding. For one thing, it feels great to be strong and it gives you a psychological edge (in any competition, and in life), but heavy training develops muscles to a degree that you can’t get exclusively from light, pumping workouts. The spinal erectors respond to deadlifts like nothing else, and shoulders that are built with clean and presses are almost always more impressive than those weaned on lateral raises.

Fat Burning, Floor-based Beatdown

If you can perform 3-4 runs through this circuit 3-4 days a week, you will quickly improve your overall fitness level while strengthening key muscle groups. As your body, heart and lungs become accustomed to the demands, you can add additional circuits (one per week), add reps (1-2 to each exercise per week) and/or reduce rest in between each exercise. A key to performing these exercises is keeping your core engaged throughout each movement.

The 15-Minute Leg Workout for Monster Quads

Once you hit start on your timer, begin your set of front squats using a full range of motion. After the last squat, immediately grab the straps or handles connected to the sled and lean backward. Staying on your toes, pull the sled backwards for about 30 yards. Then turn around and bring it back to the start position. This is one round. See how many rounds you can complete of these two moves in 15 minutes.

3 Delicious, Filling Spring Recipes

Farro is one of the ancient grains that’s made a big comeback, and with good reason, as it brings flair, flavor, and whole-grain nutrition to the table in an easy, accessible way. It is a type of wheat that resembles grains of barley, but with a nuttier flavor and delightful chewiness. It’s also simple to make—the semi-pearled variety, which is the kind typically sold in the United States, is basically boiled just like rice—and is ready in about 30 minutes, no soaking necessary. And, like rice, you can serve it hot, or chill it for salads. Here farro is the base of a layered, main course salad with hearty kale, sweet juicy grapes, crunchy walnuts and bold feta cheese. Each of the ingredients add a flavor element that plays off the other and they all come together for a truly singular dish. You can layer it in one large dish, or in individual jars to take to work, or to a picnic.

Instant Muscles: The Proper Way To Deadlift

When you deadlift, however, that’s not how it works. Have you ever tried to simply rip the bar off the floor with the same force you apply to a bench press or squat? If you have (and the weight was heavy), you likely either failed to complete the lift, or you landed in the orthopedist’s office with a herniated disk. The deadlift may not seem as technical as the bench press or the squat, but it’s just as complicated, if not more so. That’s because the correct way to raise the bar is by gradually accelerating it as you go, as opposed to “popping” it off the floor.

12 Turbocharged Fat-Fighting Secrets

Tackle Tabata Tabata intervals are one of my favorite ways to increase intensity—plus they’re very versatile, and you can do them almost anywhere. Choose exercises such as pushups or mountain climbers, go all out for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and repeat eight times. I try to do at least one Tabata workout per week. It’s a great way to combine your weight training and cardio into one workout.

Rise Above Lean Mass Workout

I want you resting 1 to 2 minutes max in between sets. This will not only build up your muscular endurance, but ensure that you are in the gym to work and not to screw around. Even though you will be using heavier weight on the lower rep sets, always be mindful of proper form and make sure you are contracting the target muscle. If you can't feel the target muscle doing the work, lower the weight. You will be getting four days of weight training and three days off each week. You will need these days to rest and recover. Make sure you do just that because this is the time you are growing and allowing your system to rest before you get after it again.

Late Night Carbs and Body Fat

Answer: No doubt the origin of this belief stems from the notion that carbohydrates simply turn into fat, especially carbohydrates that are not being used. However, the fact is the conversion of carbohydrates to fat, a process called de novo lipogenesis, does not occur to any significant degree in people (it does in rodents which is perhaps another origin of this myth). It would first take the glycogen stores in your body to be filled and then consuming 700-900 grams of carbs on top of this over the course of multiple days for de novo lipogenesis to occur at any significant degree as multiple studies have shown.
