7 Tips for Burning Fat and Building Muscle

Go outside and take a walk. Do some pushups , do some lunges – just get moving. And if you think you need hours and hours each day, you’re wrong. 10-15 minutes of moving, stretching, doing bodyweight exercises will add up very quickly in a week. Start slow and do 3 times a week and as you progress, do 4 or 5 times a week if you want. Now do this each week over the course of a month, 3 months and a year. Be consistent.

Bad Shoulders or Low Testosterone?

Which format is better? First, consider that because people have such busy schedules today, they sometimes skip the last few exercises in their workouts. If structural balance is a major concern for you, perform these exercises first. To show you why, I’ll tell you about a woman I trained years ago who broke the world record in the bench press. Before she broke that record, I determined that weakness in the muscles that externally rotated her shoulders was affecting her strength. To correct this structural imbalance, I had her perform workouts in which she performed rotator cuff exercises before she bench pressed.

12 Laws of Fat-Burning

No question about it,  burning fat  is a 24/7 endeavor. To keep the fires hot, you need to eat every 2-3 hours throughout the day. Not only that, but you must choose the right foods in the right amounts to keep your metabolism revved up so your  six-pack  will be ready for its close-up. The way we see it, there are 12 fundamentals - laws, if you will - that are all you need to shed that unwanted blubber from your midsection and elsewhere. Most of them are nutrition-driven, but training comes into play as well. Your mass-gaining phase is over for the time being; now it's time to get lean. These 12 laws of fat-burning will help get you there.

Jay Cutler's Chest Workout for Massive Pecs

“I never got caught in heavy benching,” he says. “I could put five plates on and get a couple reps, but what’s the point? It’s not the best way to build muscle, but it is the best way to injure yourself. The ideal muscle-building range is eight to 10 reps. Somebody asks me every day how to get a bench up, and I’m an honest guy with an honest answer. “I say, ‘I don’t train for strength, so it doesn’t matter to me if I bench three plates or five.’ I might come in next week and do only three plates. I’m not here to put on a show. It’s all about building muscle. I just go with how my body reacts and that’s it. It’s instinctive training, which I think every good bodybuilder picks up on with time and experimenting.”

So put away your fears and get the full skinny on fats, your new BFFs.

The 8 Best Foods for Total Body Strength

Strength is our body’s ability to exert physical force on objects — also known as being able to push through a heavy set. Following a progressive overload program is one way to boost muscular strength, but sometimes it can come from the food that you eat. Packing away enough calories, macros, and nutrients can help you muster up that extra strength you need — resulting in hitting your fitness goals. Get the edge that you need in a workout by incorporating some of these strength-enhancing foods.

Carb Control

This means that a 150-pounder should get in 300 grams of carbs, and a 200-pound lean bodybuilder should take in about 400. But that doesn’t mean you can take in any carb you want at any time of day. Look at the following tips for guidance on which carbs to consume and when.

17
Metabolic Modifiers

Stress the protein: more chicken, egg whites, fish and whey-based protein powder. Why? Not all calories — from carbs, protein and fat — are equal in their efficiency to be stored as bodyfat. When you eat a high-protein meal, it exerts a greater metabolic-boosting effect than carbs or fat. Eating protein while on a lower-calorie diet saves muscle, which helps keep the metabolism elevated. You should get at least one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight per day. If bodyfat is a problem for you, aim for 1.5 g of protein per pound daily.

The High-Intensity Circuit to Sweat Your Gut Off

Plyometric exercises are so effective because you're repeatedly creating a forceful contraction, which means you're burning major calories, Perry explains. Movements like jumping rope, sprinting, throwing (think baseball and football)—even punching or kicking—are performed rapidly and demand a quick stretching or loading of the muscle followed by a forceful contraction. This is why plyo circuits don't (and shouldn't) take very long. You want to keep the intensity high and the duration somewhere between 10 to 20 minutes. Your most intense workouts should be shortest.

Steve “King Snake” Kuclo’s KING-SIZED Workout

I first started training when I was 17 and HEAVY was all I knew. I had the mentality that if I could move heavy weight and continue to get stronger, I could get bigger as well! As most beginners know, pretty much no matter what you do, you will grow when you first start pumping iron. But, there will come a point when things need to change and you need to keep your body guessing, as it will adapt to whatever you are doing after a period of time. It may be six months or a year, but the same thing over and over will eventually stop working—the way it did when you first started the program.

10 Ab Workouts Under 10 Minutes

Abs. What dude doesn't want them? While what you eat (and don’t eat) is huge when your goal is to get ripped, working the superficial six-pack muscles along with their deeper stabilizer cousins is an important component, too. But you don't have to spend all day or even your whole gym session doing it. Whether you’re short on time and looking to get a quick blitz or wanting to tack on some extra core work to your longer weight training session, these routines from personal trainer Eric Emig of St. Louis’s Evolution Fitness can be cranked out in 10 minutes or less.

Eat Fat, Burn Fat

Cutting back on carbs is a common approach to shedding body fat. Yet, most gym rats cringe at the notion of a long-term low-carb diet, fearing that they’ll wither away. Truth is, the error lifters typically make is not one of excess but rather they don’t cut carbs enough. Following a ketogenic diet—one in which you drop your carbs to a mere 5% of your total calories—may be the best diet for getting ripped in a hurry, and it’s certainly the most enjoyable. If you can’t imagine giving up burgers, cheese, and bacon to gain visible abs, a ketogenic diet is for you.

29
The Best Time of Day to Drink Your Protein Shake

Why do people always talk about getting nutrients into your body within 30 minutes of a workout? Because protein uptake is faster immediately after a workout, so you’re better served to start the recovery process as soon as possible, Jordan explains. Think about it like this: Your body has burned through all those nutrients and hormones to power your workout, so you’re asking it to recover on nothing until you refill those stores. So, as soon as you can post-sweat (or likely while you're still sweating), down a shake with around 20-30 grams of protein.

Tip: Send Carbs To Muscle | T Nation

C3G has been the most remarkable thing that's worked for me when it comes to carb intake and insulin sensitivity. I was a low-carb dieter for years because eating that way worked for me at one point in time, but habitually depleting my body of carbs eventually stopped working. (I looked chubby and couldn't poop.) And it didn't matter how much gym time I racked up, my body didn't respond well to a mostly meat and veggie diet. Nor did my stamina, power output, strength, or day to day energy. So I reintroduced carbs when I started using C3G and put them to work in the right places.

How to Hit Those Stubborn Outer Calves

Bodybuilding requires full development of each muscle group. For lower legs, that means equal development of the gastrocnemius, or calf. The gastrocnemius has two heads, the medial (inner) head and the lateral (outer) head. For many, the real challenge is the outer head. Research done at Armstrong Atlantic State University has shown that turning your toes inward when doing standing calf raises shifts the emphasis to the outer head. Yes, it sounds a little confusing, but it’s the way to go for outer calves. Also, seated calf raises place greater emphasis on the soleus, which lies underneath the gastrocnemius.

Mechanical Advantage Drop Sets For Chest

The jailhouse weight pile has limited equipment, yet inmates produce phenomenal gains. Because of a lack of equipment and crowded quarters, the con has two options: A.) get creative and grow or B.) enter a muscle- and strength-building stalemate and risk getting punked in the shower. My junior year in high school I trained chest with two huge ex-cons who chose option A. One day these two huge characters walked into the gym ready to throw around some pig iron and I was in awe of their big, round chests. Their session started off with a few compound barbell pressing exercises with tremendously heavy weight, and then it was time for dumbbell incline presses. The bigger of the two muscled-up specimens barked at me to help him as he grabbed the 140s and sat back on a steep incline and proceeded to lift the dumbbells to failure, approximately eight reps. He then sat up and said drop the seat a couple holes and proceeded to hit about five more reps. As he reached failure, I dropped the seat and he continued. As momentary muscular failure resulted, leverage (mechanical advantage) was improved by lessening the incline; this was unlike a traditional drop set or strip set where weight was reduced.
