7 Best Bodybuilding Foods

The greatest performance diets may seem complicated and fancy, but they are all built on a foundation of basic principles and simple foods. Eat the right ones, and your body will respond accordingly. If your current regimen doesn't include the following body-builders, beeline to the grocery store and stock up on them, stat. Bonus: They're also all pretty delicious. 1. EGG WHITES Show us a bodybuilder without egg whites in his diet, and we'll show you someone who's missing out on the best protein money can buy. Paired with oatmeal, an egg-white omelet can turn your breakfast into a power meal to fuel the rest of your day. Buy It: When purchasing eggs, do the basics: Always check the date and open the carton to check for cracks. Also, be sure the eggs are refrigerated in the store and when you get home with them. Although eggs stored out of the refrigerator won't necessarily cause illness, they do lose a grade per day when not refrigerated. Prepare It: Although many gadgets promise an easy way to separate the yolk from the white, the quickest, easiest method is to simply use your own clean hands.

The Bench Press Controversy

The bench press remains a superior movement, and it may be so for you, but only if you learn these lessons, as I did. First, it’s not an ego exercise, so don’t use it to see how much you can bench; use it to build your pecs. Second, adapt the exercise to your body rather than vice versa — if you feel it more in your chest muscles when you’re on a flat bench, then that’s the position you should use; if you feel it more at a specific angle, use that angle. Third, control the movement so that you feel the pump build in your pecs, right where you want it. - FLEX

How Texting Could Be Killing Your Relationship

“Try to respond to her text if you can within the hour,” advises Spira. “If you happen to be by your phone, respond quickly instead of playing games. If you’re busy in a meeting or with another activity, acknowledge her text and say, ‘Thx. In a meeting. Talk later?’ This shows some warmth as compared to just, ‘In a meeting’.”

Your Questions About Hair Loss – Answered

You begin to wonder what’s at the root of your seemingly impending balding (“Is it because I got caught in the rain yesterday?”  “Should I be drinking more milk?”) And we get it; hair loss is a touchy subject. So, we went to Amy McMichael, M.D., a dermatologist specializing in hair and scalp disease, to ask all the crucial questions for you.

8 Amazing Fat-Burning Intervals

If your goal is to burn fat, intervals better be part of your program. Besides being a quick method to getting in a great workout, intervals are extremely effective for transforming your physique. By incorporating intense periods of work with short recovery segments, intervals allow you to keep the workout intensity high while still maintaining form. The magic of high intensity interval training (or HIIT for short) lies its ability to keep you burning fat even after you leave the gym. In short, your body isn’t able to bring in enough oxygen during periods of hard work. Therefore, you accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result — your metabolism is revved for hours after you leave the gym. Trainers refer to this phenomena as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption or EPOC. The biggest way to use it to your advantage is to make short, intense exercise bouts a regular piece of your workout regimen.

How to Work Out After Any Injury

Being injured sucks. Almost as rough: Coming back to the gym post-injury. After all, you’re set back from where you were, and even after rehab, the strength in the injured body part won’t be the same. Steve Saunders, founder of Power Train , has coached numerous major league sports players back to playing form post-injury. Whether you're coming back from a shoulder injury, Illiotibial Band Syndrome, hamstring strain, or another common injury, his advice can help you too. Click through the slides below to find your injury. Then, do each of the recommended moves in three sets of 10, taking a minute rest between sets. Aim to work these into your routine two to three times per week. Injuries and comeback time will be different for everyone so talk to your doctor if you're still feeling pain or not seeing improvements.  And by all means, start easy and be careful! Another setback is way worse than a little wounded weight-room pride.

9 Habits That Are Hurting Your Penis

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.

Size Secret #4: Shorten Your Range of Motion

But one technique that really helped me, especially on inclines, was to stay in a certain ‘window’ of the range of motion. I don’t lock out my elbows at the top of the rep and I don’t come down all the way and touch my chest at the bottom. I stop just short of full range of motion on both ends to keep constant tension on the muscles. I think that has really helped my upper-chest development.”

6 Tips for Growing Bigger Calves

The calves are for most, quite resistant to growth. Every time you take a step the calves are activated, and are burdened with carrying around your bodyweight all day long. This means that you must attack the calves fiercly if they are to have any reason to increase in size and strength. Conventional training simply will not do when it comes to calves, so I have listed below 6 unique methods for sending a wake-up call to those stubborn calf muscle fibers.

Daily Session: The No-Barbell Chest and Triceps Workout

The bench press is taken and so are all the cable machines, but the dumbbells are all free. Today is chest and triceps day - but isn’t the barbell bench press the best exercise for chest?

Andrew Sakhrani, CSCS of Monster Gym in Montreal, Canada solves today’s workout conundrum by giving us a chest and triceps workout that’s all dumbbells.

Improve Vascularity for an Impressive Look

Training for a pump can bring more blood flow to an area, which will make the veins in that body part more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is temporary. High rep, high volume training works better for bringing out vascularity. Lower rep, lower volume training has its place for building muscle but will do nothing to help you get a pump. Training for vascularity does not really exist. As stated earlier the only method to revealing your veins is to lower your body fat. Focus on training with progression and on building slabs of muscle. Being veiny doesn't really look appealing unless you have the muscle to back it up.

Push-Pull Combo to Build Upper-Body Muscle

Arnold was legendary for his chest and back-superset workouts that put trainloads of muscle on his frame. Push/pull combos are also very time effective and allow you to get a lot of work density in a short amount of time. By training agonist and antagostic muscles in a superset fashion, you allow your pushing muscles to rest, while you’re pulling muscles are working, and vice-versa. This allows you to use optimal weight when lifting to increase muscle growth.

Kaged Muscle Glutamine at

Stress is the ultimate enemy of the human mind and body. Glutamine is no exception to the ravages of stress. The stress hormone cortisol is "catabolic" leading to breaking down the body and tissues. Whereas, the goal is an "anabolic" building mode. No matter how chill and no worries attitude you may have, living in the modern helter skelter world wears down even the most easy-going person. Remember stress is not just a mental state of mind, lack of sleep, long work hours or a hostile work environment, relationship issues, a cold or flu and even food allergens/intolerances are all perceived as enemies of the "state of thriving" not just surviving.
