For two of the most discussed topics in sports nutrition (protein and testosterone), it's amazing how little is known about the effects on the latter of consuming the former. Here's what the latest research says about how your protein supplement may impact your levels of testosterone.

To test out the latest version of the plan, I put T Nation reader Gus Pancho on the latest version of the V-Diet. Gus is 37 years old and lost 40 pounds and nine inches from his belly during and after his Velocity Diet experience.

Zero Carb Isopure by Nature's Best at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on Zero Carb Isopure!

I have tried quite the variety of flavors from Nature's Best Isopure. The Dutch Chocolate is by far my favorite. Coming in a close second is the Toasted Coconut. I would really like to try the two together and make a Mounds type flavor. The Banana Cream is also close to the top for me. It has an amazing flor and is just so smooth. I have paired this with the Dutch Chocolate in the past and it was pretty amazing. I am torn on the Vanilla Salted Caramel. At times I taste a rubbing alcohol after taste. Not quite sure what is going on there. It is alright. I enjoyed the Cookies & Cream, but I will say that it needs more cookie in it and less cream. The ratio is off a bit. The Vanilla to me was your typical vanilla protein. It wasn't bad by no means and was very creamy. I mix my powder with water mostly, but will through some almond or coconut milk in it from time to time if I know I may not eat for a while. This holds me over longer than just mixing with water. My over all experience with Isopure is A+ and I would recommend this brand to anyone.

Push-Pull-Legs: The Ultimate Split | T Nation

But if you're training chest, shoulders, and triceps in one session, then back and biceps the next, you're giving the pushing muscles a chance to be taken through some active and loaded stretching during back day (vertical and horizontal pulling) which can serve as a bit of localized recovery. If you need to stimulate the push muscles again that week, you just throw in another session for it.

The Simple 7 Warm-Up | T Nation

The floor slide will dynamically stretch the pecs and the front of your shoulders. It'll activate the often dormant upper back and shoulder-stabilizing muscles. You need to wake these up if you're training upper body! It'll also train you to depress and retract the shoulder blades. This position has huge carryover to exercises like rows and pulldowns, but also the bench press and squat setup.

The elitefts Timeline

The story of how elitefts got started depends on if you’re talking to Dave or Traci. They both, however, agree that it would not have been possible without each other. For Dave, realizing there were thousands of coaches and athletes looking for quality training advice, he set up a simple question-and-answer forum through a powerlifting website and began writing articles to help these athletes and coaches. It was at this moment elitefts was born. Dave saw a need and set out to meet it: “I could not believe the incredible amount of misinformation in regards to strength training.” For Traci, she set up the business entity for a consulting business for fitness and personal training. While venting her frustrations at the gym one day, Louie Simmons chimed in, “Why don’t you sell my products?” They started with several products and a $1000 loan, and the rest is history.

Iron Sport Workout Program #1

NEW from Iron Sport Gym! Iron Sport has built a reputation as one of the finest gyms in the country, if not the world, but I know that not everyone is in a position to visit our facility. It occurred to me that a simple way to help many serious lifters is by sharing some of the workouts and training methods that we use here at Iron Sport. I’ve been training athletes for decades and training myself for even longer and have many things to share. If you can’t make it out to Pennsylvania, at least you’ll be able to have a little piece of Iron Sport in your own gym or weight room. For the following program, my goal is to provide you with all the important details that I can think of and erase any confusion so that you can put all your efforts into your training and not end up frustrated over not knowing what to do. If you are truly serious, I’m going to just come right out and say that the best option would be to come and train with me at Iron Sport but if that isn’t possible, this workout will be the next best thing. http://www.ironsport.com/shop/pdf/ironsport-workout-001 This is a 21 page downloadable PDF which provides all the details of a 16-week Power program: specific exercises, coaching tips, assistance movements, and other suggestions for making this program work.

Tip: A New Way to Row | T Nation

Fourth, the rotational nature of the rope produces both converging and diverging hand positions at different phases of the movement. For instance, during the concentric phase, there's a natural spreading of the hands (towards the sides of the torso) creating a greater squeeze in the upper back in the fully contracted position. In contrast, the eccentric or negative phase pulls the handles closer together in a converging fashion creating additional elongation and stretching of the lats.

The Food Combo That Makes You Fat | T Nation

The researchers noticed that the high fat group and the fat/sugar combo group had the exact same hormone response from the diets (i.e. leptin, a hunger hormone, had the same response). This caused the researchers to look for other hormones or nerve signals that may have caused this. What they discovered is that something about the high fat, high sugar diet was being communicated to the brain via the gut and liver.

10 At-home Kettlebell Workouts to Build Total-Body Muscle

The kettlebell is an extremely versatile piece of training equipment to have at home. Kettlebells offer unique training benefits over dumbbells—the uneven weight distribution will challenge you to control the weight as you swing, press, or pull. Plus, kettlebells will add extra challenges when it comes to grip and core stability. It’s a good idea to have your home equipped with a nice set of kettlebells—you never know when you’ll be stuck inside, especially during the winter.

20 Muscle-Building Monkey Bar Exercises For a Killer Bodyweight Workout

How to do it: Starting from the bottom of a pullup position—your legs dead hanging straight down—begin to swing your body into a hollow position. To do this, pull your belly in and extend your legs out so they’re slightly in front of your body. Your shoulders are the prime movers here. When your body is squeezed and forward in the midst of the hollow position, your body will resemble the letter C. Next, forcefully pull back so your body and chest move forward and your legs move back behind your body (think of creating an inverted C). Keep alternating these two motions until you can see above the bar. When you can pull high enough to see above the bar, pull into the bar, then quickly push away, swinging back into the forward position (inverted C). From here, you’ll drop down to the hanging position and begin again.

Tip: From Block Pull to Deadlift | T Nation

Some lifters may not have the most advantageous limb length (short arms/long torso) or ankle and hip mobility to pull a deadlift from the floor. This may result in an ugly pull or strained back. The block pull will help you build "sticking point" strength and overall safe pulling volume.

Tip: A Different Way to Do Pulldowns | T Nation

The kneeling pulldown will hit your back in a different way than the standard (not-from-the-floor) pulldown, but consider it supplemental rather than a priority. You'll probably want to do them at the end of your workout because you can't really load them quite as heavily as you might need to. There are two reasons for this:
