Tip: Shoulder Triples for Strength and Size | T Nation

Three things that most people agree on: They want to get stronger. They want to build muscle. They don't want to get injured. Ideally, they want to accomplish all three in the most time-efficient way possible. Many people complain about not having enough time to go to the gym, but when they actually do go they spend 30 minutes standing around doing absolutely nothing. Take those 30 minutes of chatting, standing, and "resting" and do something useful. Supersets are nothing new, but if you apply the principles of strength, muscle endurance/growth, and mobility together you can create damn good workouts that are extremely productive. In a "triple set" you combine a heavy weight for low reps, a moderate weight for medium reps, and then a banded, full range of motion exercise for high reps to hit all three areas of strength, endurance, and mobility. Here's an effective shoulder triple set: 5 close-grip dumbbell presses (heavy) 10 wide-grip dumbbell presses (moderate) 20 banded dislocates For the close-grip dumbbell press, use a weight you can do for around 8 reps with good form.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, April 5, 2018

Thursday, April 5, 2018 - You find rejection a difficult pill to swallow, especially if someone criticizes your innovative suggestions today. You’re not in the mood to jump through hoops to pitch your solution to a current problem. Naturally, you want others to accept your ideas, even if they are unproven. Stop defending your plan; assimilate the feedback you receive even if it’s too harsh for your liking. President Bill Clinton said, “The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.”

Tip: Ginger, Pain Relief, and Performance - Biotest

There were nine studies included in the analysis for use as an ergogenic aid. Two studies showed decreases in inflammatory markers in the ginger groups. One study showed a decrease in recovery time in bicep 1RM in the ginger group. Another study showed small to moderate effect sizes in range of motion and RPE (rate of perceived exertion) of the elbow between ginger and placebo groups. The rest of the studies didn't seem to show any difference.

5 Combat Rope Moves to Torch Your Metabolism

Hitting the treadmill for yet another steady-state run may be a tried-and-true way to burn a few calories, but it’s about as much fun as watching paint dry. If your workout is due for an overhaul, you may want to look for the coils of rope sitting in a corner of your gym. These combat ropes, or battle ropes, may seem inconsequential, but they’re actually a metabolism-boosting super tool in disguise. Swinging these long, heavy ropes doesn’t just work your arms, it works everything, taxing your legs , core , and upper body, all while sending your heart rate soaring.

For the not-obese person who enjoys one too many cheat meals, this could become a slippery slope. The fatter you get, the more sweetness you need to satisfy your "sweet tooth" and the harder it'll be to enjoy healthy foods. But as you lose body fat, you'll grow more taste buds and be more sensitive to healthy flavors.

Tip: Two Glute Exercises for Knee Health | T Nation

Start by placing a short band around your forefeet (balls of your feet) and taking a hip-width stance. Slightly bend at the knees and hinge at the hips until your torso is about 30 to 45 degrees. Begin taking side steps that are a few inches wide while keeping the feet forward and resisting knee collapse. Start with 10 steps in each direction for 2-3 sets.

When should you pack in the calories and protein? When should you have your smallest, lowest-carb meal of the day? Here's the science. …

Chest, Shoulders & Triceps

*I faced the pad on the presses because it creates a more natural pressing movement.  Immediately stand on one end of the band with both feet, grab the other end with your palms in a neutral hand position and shoulder width apart.  Perform a front raise with your thumbs up (1), spread the band hitting rear delts with your hands shoulder height (2), bring them back together out in front of you (3), and then lower (4).  That counts as 1 rep of 4-ways, so perform 10 reps. Do this superset for 3 rounds.

20 Total-Body Workouts, In Five Moves (Or Less)

You know those workouts that seemingly combine every kind of exercise and piece of equipment in the gym? You won’t find any of those here. That’s because you don’t need a bunch of tools, time, or moves to target every muscle and burn serious calories. We asked some of the country’s top trainers to design total-body routines that hit these requirements: fewer than two pieces of equipment, under 40 minutes, and no more than five exercises. What we got are the workouts that we want to do: They’re all fun, fast, and effective.

When Giants Roamed the Earth • Zach Even-Esh

The only thing the present day, steroid-ridden “monsters of the midway” as my late friend John Grimek called them have on the “old timers” such as Grimek, Reeves, Pearl, Delinger, etc., is size. Beauty of physique and health are all but forgotten in their quest for massiveness. One really can’t call it bodybuilding any longer because that is now a misnomer. The older generations of bodybuilders were very strong, healthy men who got that way by lifting heavy and eating lots of good food. Sadly, today’s young bodybuilders are inundated with magazines full of ugly, bald, unhappy-looking idiots with 24 inch arms, 36 inch thighs, pumped-up veins and striations (cuts) and bloated, distended bellies that pass for bodybuilders. They are not! They’re bums, who got that big by taking steroids- drugs! The young guys look at them and they, too want to be big! Big! Big! Forget about their health and body symmetry. their only goal is to get huge. Ronnie Colman, Jay Cutler- even Schwarzenneger before them- and the rest of the bloated bums have taken the sport to a new low and I don’t think it will ever come back to what it once was.
