When Should I Change My Training? | T Nation

For muscle growth, most experts feel that gaining 40-50 pounds of new muscle tissue over a natural man's entire training career is about what most people can expect. Sure there are outliers on both ends of the spectrum, but that doesn't change my point – you can only get so big or so strong.

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.

Shawn Ray Answers: Are Pro Cards Earned Too Easily? | GI News

Shawn Ray talks pro cards and if there are too many given out each year. Recently, Dorian Yates posted a statement regarding the amount of pro cards that are rewarded each year in bodybuilding. In what is essentially one part nostalgia for a simpler time, one part criticism of the modern divisions in bodybuilding - Dorian believes that too many cards are given out. He thinks that amateurs get their pro card too easily and then are crushed when they first step onto the pro stage. Shawn Ray takes this statement as a jumping off point and analyzes the current state of pro cards in bodybuilding. Are there really too many handed out? Or is this just a result of more divisions... and the challenge and quality of physiques are still fairly being rewarded? Do older bodybuilders simply miss the way it used to be? Or is it really a downward spiral that needs to be addressed? Shawn touches upon every detail in our latest GI News report. Check it out above.

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.

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: 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.

This means they’re deficient in one or more nutrients because of that.”

The Best Bodyweight Exercises to Get Muscular Biceps

Luckily, you don’t need a ton of equipment or heavy weights to do that. There are lots of great bodyweight moves that will sculpt sick biceps without requiring you to pump any iron whatsoever. The following eight moves, chosen by  Equinox  Tier 3 trainer Rachel Mariotti, are the best of the best bodyweight moves for your biceps. Some require no equipment at all, but for others you’ll need a pullup bar, resistance band, or TRX. Some target the biceps as the primary muscle but others call other muscle groups in on the action, but will still hone your biceps as well.

Tip: No Training, No Carbs? | T Nation

If you aren't going to train hard, and your goal is fat loss, then you don't need "fast fuel" that day. Note that if your goal is to build maximum size, not get lean, I recommend having carbs on off days. But when trying to get lean this is a very simple approach. You don't even need to necessarily count calories, just don't eat any carbs.
