Body-Part Splits Are Dead | T Nation

Lifting weights is a skill, a skill that only gets better with practice. Ask any world-class pianist, ballerina, or artist, and they would agree: You can't just show up once a week and expect to perfect your craft. Yet by working each muscle only once a week, as with a body-part split, that's exactly what you're doing. On the flip side, by increasing frequency, you give yourself more opportunities to practice.

Tip: Supercharge GH Production | T Nation

While both groups showed a GH response, the group that finished their workout with a high-rep "finisher" experienced a greater GH response during the 60 minutes immediately following the workout. The high-GH group also showed greater increases in strength (greater improvement in their 1RM) and greater growth of their leg muscles than the group that didn't finish off with a high-rep set.

Tip: Do Rice Digs for Grip Strength | T Nation

It's really a very simple movement. Get a big bucket and fill it with rice. I've also seen rubber chips, metal shot, and sand used. The metal shot is hardcore and should only be used by those with a very strong grip to begin with. Rice is your best bet as it's the easiest to use and you can always progress up to the sand from there.

Tip: The Right Way to Lift for Fat Loss | T Nation

Most serious dieting has its roots in the kitchen, i.e., body fat is better controlled through diet than exercise. However, we're forgetting about EPOC, or excess post-exercise oxygen consumption. Certain forms of exercise cause you to burn more calories after you QUIT working out and, when combined with dieting, can lead to appreciable fat loss.

Tip: 7 Challenging New Ways to Build Your Chest | T Nation

Another way to challenge the chest is to not fully complete the range of motion. This keeps a high amount of tension on the pecs and it makes the movement less stable. When the hands are brought all the way together, the straps also pull all the way up against the arms, providing stability. Keeping the hands away from the mid-line keeps the straps off the arms, requiring the shoulder joint to keep stable on its own.

How to actually make exercise enjoyable

The research showed that the subjects derived greater psychological as well as neurophysiological benefits from exercise if they already had a positive attitude about the benefits of working out. "These results indicate that habitual expectations in particular affect exercise-induced psychological and neurophysiological changes in a self-fulfilling manner," according to the study.

8 tough exercises for your abs that won't hurt your back

Starting in pushup position, balance with a kettlebell supporting each hand. Then, row one arm up a time, being sure to maintain good alignment. "This move is great for working the strength of external obliques and low back stabilizers," says Sanders. "But note: it’s not tough if you use the pink KB’s. Men should aim for 20-24kg. 3 sets, 6-8 reps per side.  *Pictured with dumbbells.

The Gun Show Workout

You’ll finish the giant set with a high-rep flush on the overhead rope extension, which also targets the triceps’ long head. Using a slow, rhythmic style, the set should take at least 60 seconds to complete – ideally between 90 seconds and two minutes. Do not stop -- keep continuous tension on the triceps. Make sure you get a good stretch each rep to maximize muscle fatigue. This is a long range of motion move designed to enhance the size and appearance of your tri’s, so don’t cheat with partials. If you fail before 40 reps, turn around, set the pin to a lower weight and continue immediately.

13
White Rice vs. Brown Rice

Rice is a classic bodybuilding food, but white and brown rice have different benefits. Both are great sources of carbs, but white rice causes more of an insulin spike due to its very low fiber and fat content. Brown rice also increases insulin release, but the fiber and fats help reduce this. Therefore, at times of the day when you aren’t training, the carbs from brown rice are much less likely to go to body-fat storage than those from white rice.

An AB-solute Must!

When I think of great abdominal development, one of the first men to come to mind is my friend Frank Zane. He had such a tiny waist and a midsection that was so well balanced — from serratus to obliques to intercostals to rectus abdominis — that he looked like the living, breathing incarnation of Michelangelo’s David. I remember it seemed like I saw Frank on a Roman chair every workout, both at the beginning and at the end. He would go for 500 reps each workout. I used to chide him about all that time he spent training his abs, but I couldn’t deny that it did the trick.

10 strength-building strategies that will never die

The main reason people plateau and stop gaining strength is that they go too heavy for too long. Abandon your ego and do your main lifts using 10% less than the most weight you can lift for the given rep range. Increase the weight each session — but by no more than 10 pounds — and stick with the same lifts. You'll rarely plateau again.

4 mistakes that can be cutting your life short

For years, scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the National Institute on Aging ran dueling calorie-deprivation tests on primates, which live to an average age of 25, to see if less food equals longer life. They agreed that cutting calories by 30% improved the monkeys’ health (by cutting cancer and heart-disease risk), but on living longer, they didn’t see eye to eye.

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

Tip: Build Glutes With The Reverse Hyper | T Nation

It's virtually impossible to keep your spine neutral with these. So the neutral-spine reverse hyper is a misnomer. So just minimize spinal and pelvic motion and produce most of the motion with your hips. This requires eccentric absorption with the hams to restrain the pendulum and prevent spinal flexion at the bottom of the movement. It also requires a strong glute contraction at the top to limit spinal hyperextension.

“Protein is essential for building lean muscle. The market is over flooded with protein powders, but how can you know what those powders are made of? I never felt safe with the jars filled with “unknown” substance. That’s how I looked at it. I wanted my health promoting whey protein to come from healthy cows’ milk, not from hormone treated and grain fed cows. It was very important to offer a natural product without artificial sweeteners, GMO soy or added sugar to mask bad taste. It took long time to find the right formula, but now it’s here and I’m very proud of it. Say Hello to FDX Whey!" -Pauline Nordin, founder of Fighter Diet

When subjects were given an extra 100 milligrams a day of vitamin C, exercise participation increased. One theory is that the extra vitamin C kept them from getting colds, which typically scuttled their workouts. The scientists also point to previous research showing that vitamin C supplementation reduces perception of effort during exercise, which helps inspire physical activity. The antioxidant activity of vitamin C may also play a role, as oxidative stress is related to fatigue.

How to be "The best sex of her life"

I personally don’t sex and tell, so this is all just hypothetical, but one thing’s for certain: Human sexuality is a rainbow of weird that’s very hard to pin down. That means while it’s good that you care about satisfying your partner, it’s going to be impossible to predict what ingredients will add up to her “best sex ever”—so there’s no point in agonizing over it or wasting brainpower trying to figure it out.
