Arnold Schwarzenegger Shares His Best Shoulder-Training Tips

As intensity techniques go, I think drop sets and supersets are great when doing front-, middle- and rear-delt raises. On overhead presses, however, my favorite technique is the rest-pause. The reason behind this is with rest-pauses, you never have to lighten the load - you start with a heavy weight and stick with it for the whole set. To refresh, here's how to perform rest-pauses: Pick a weight for a Smith machine overhead press with which you can do about six reps. Do a set of 4-5 reps, rest 15-20 seconds, and then do 2-3 more reps with that same weight. Rest another 15-20 seconds, then do another 2-3 reps. At that point, you'll have done 8-11 reps with a weight with which you could normally do only six. These tips will help spark growth in your shoulders, so give them a try next time delt day rolls around. Follow your pressing moves with high-intensity laterals and you'll have the best of both worlds: size and definition.

Every Ab-Ripping Exercise from The 21-Day Shred

Sticking Points

In this article, we detail ways to overcome a strength plateau for a specific lift, using the bench press as our example. Let’s say you want to set a new personal best for the bench press. Workout after workout, you pyramid up to 225 for six reps, but no matter how hard you struggle, you can’t do seven on your own, nor can you get six reps with more than 225. Sometimes you can get only four or five reps, but even on your best day, six is your limit. For both neuromuscular and psychological reasons, six is your Waterloo (orWeightloo). You’ve reached a roadblock. Here are seven routes for getting around it.

Emergency Shred: 2-Week Workout to Get Shredded

Yes, there is rest built in—two days, to be exact—but not until you’ve put in seven straight days of pedal-to-the-metal work. rest on days 8 and 13 to allow your body to temporarily recover from the grind of the program. this will help you bank more energy for the work days that follow. These rest days are mandatory. For those of you hitting the panic button, don’t fret—12 out of 14 days at these intensities will still be plenty adequate for getting your shred. remember: your body changes while it recovers, not while you train. so consider these two days your chance to bust into the gym a little more ripped on Days 9 and 14.

The Big 25

Add the farmer’s walk to your cardio regimen. Hold moderate to heavy dumbbells at your sides with your abs pulled and take long strides, walking until you can no longer grip the dumbbells. Rest 90 seconds each time you fail and then go again, striding for 10-20 minutes total. This gives you the calorie burning of cardio while increasing your grip and core strength.

One-Off Workout: Push and Stretch Your Chest

McComsey says this is a great workout for packing on size in the chest because of the variety involved. "You're using both barbells and dumbbells for the pushing, flyes which provide a stretch, especially of the muscle fascia and you've got some bodyweight work in there with the push ups. It's an amazing formula for growth."

Grilled Cheese Lovers Have More Sex | Eat This Not That

It’s common knowledge that cheese can make you bloated and gassy, so we were surprised to learn that those who are big fans of the sandwiches are more apt to strip down and get busy than those who don’t love the dish, but it’s true. In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day on April 12, dating and social networking site, Skout asked 4,600 of its community members different questions about their lifestyle—including their feelings about grilled cheese sandwiches (because, obviously, that’s pertinent information). As it turns out, 32 percent of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least six times a month, while only 27 percent of those who don’t love the cheesy classic can claim the same.

24-Minute Physique Makeover

Before reading on, there are a couple points to consider. In order complete your workouts before the 24-minute buzzer goes off, and to maximize your results, you must observe the recommended rest periods. The rest periods are clearly listed for both the straight sets and supersets. For the supersets, understand that it is the down time between supersets, not the time between the individual exercises of the superset. The time between any two exercises within a superset is essentially zero, or rather as long as it takes you to get set up for the next exercise. For each set, select a weight that brings about failure at or near the rep range listed.

5 Key Nutrition Rules For Massive Gains

Whenever you start anything new, there’s always a learning curve and you’re bound to make a few rookie errors along the way. In bodybuilding there are two main mistakes beginners tend to make: 1) Following a training program that’s not appropriate for their goals. 2) Underestimating the importance of nutrition. You don’t grow just because you train; growth is actually dependent on proper recovery from training. And the way you recuperate best is by providing your body with the nutrients it needs at the appropriate times for optimal recovery and growth. Your goal is to add lean mass — muscle tissue. That’s true whether you’re a hardgainer, a guy with good genetics or a guy who carries excess bodyfat. Here are the basic nutritional principles you need to support your training to maximize your chances for muscle growth right out of the gate. 1. Make sure you consume adequate calories every day. The bottom line is you can’t add weight if you aren’t taking in more calories than you’re burning.

Hammer Time

The same goes for back machines. I used to do reverse-grip pulldowns on a lat machine before I ever touched a piece of Hammer Strength equipment. When the Hammer Strength version came out, I was pleased. What I like most about it is the arc of the pulling movement. On a lat machine, the pulldown motion is in a straight line, but the function of the lats is to pull both down and back, so the Hammer Strength machine is more effective. The seated row is equally good and is something I used quite a bit. I especially liked to perform these in single-arm fashion. In fact, I became known as such a proponent of this exercise that I was later consulted during the development of a reverse-grip rowing machine.

10 Foods That Keep You Full Till 5 P.M.

Staying focused and alert throughout the day can be a bit of a challenge. Getting a good night’s rest is crucial, but so is filling up on the right foods. By now you should be looking at food as fuel, not only for your muscles but for your mind and energy stores. As soon as hunger strikes your productivity dips. This is where Keren Gilbert, M.S., R.D., founder and president of Decision Nutrition, comes in. She’s identified 10 hydrophilic (that's a fancy way of saying “water-loving”) foods to keep you full well through 5 p.m.

3 Vitamins There’s No Reason to Take

The eight B vitamins—B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12—are known collectively as B-complex vitamins. These have been proven to help your body convert food into fuel for energy, maintain metabolism, keep your mind sharp, promote healthy skin and hair, and more.

Lift Doctor: Prescription for Bigger Calves

But don’t play the genetics card. Train your ass off and make calf work a priority in your workouts. If it is a weakness, try to make it a strength. Do them first before every training session. Calves respond to high volume training so shoot for 4-6 sets of 20 reps. Isometrics - where you hold the lockout for a count of 1-2 - and slow eccentrics - where you control the lowering of each rep for 3-5 seconds – are advanced and highly painful ways to make each set harder.

It all goes back to inflammation, and why I built Zero Belly to calm the fire and turn off the fat-storage genes that processed foods turn on.

Hardgainers: 4 Rules to Finally Get Big

This Just In: Taco Bell May Start Serving Booze | Eat This Not That

So what will that mean for you and your waistline? If you decide to indulge alcohol—and you want to stay trim—plan to skip high-cal dishes like the Smothered Shredded Chicken Burrito (1,300 calories) and Express Taco Salad with Chips (580 calories) and opt for a lighter menu option like the Fresco Chicken Soft Tacos (280 calories) instead. This will leave you some extra calories to put toward your drink order. Just be sure to cut yourself off after round one. The more you sip, the more appetizing those Chalupas become, which ups the odds you’ll go back to the counter for more.

Gain 10 Pounds of Muscle in 4 Weeks

The second half of the program is all about maximizing size with slightly higher reps and an emphasis on intensity. Rep ranges move up to 10-12 for most exercises, which is ideal for promoting muscle hypertrophy (growth). Overall volume increases slightly during these two weeks, mainly due to the addition of isolation exercises that you’ll perform before compound movements for your chest, back, shoulders and legs. Called pre-exhaustion, this technique dramatically increases workout intensity. You fatigue the main target muscle with an isolation exercise, then hit it in this fatigued state with a compound move, which if done right will lead to your main muscle failing before assistance muscles give out. (For example, for chest the dumbbell flye hits the pecs directly, so your triceps shouldn’t end up being the weak link and cause the termination of the set during the bench press).

Kettlebell and Body-Weight Combos for Rapid Weight-Loss

It’s time to break out of your cardio interval training rut. Combine these kettlebell and body-weight movements for the ultimate workout for rapid weight-loss . The workouts can be done all at once, or on spilt days and are sure to make you sweat, engage your muscles, and torch tons of calories. For more kettlebell workouts try, The 20-Minute Fat-Burning Kettlebell Complex .

Over the next month, we’ll hit your biceps with the utmost intensity while also paying close attention to the small details within each workout. Each week focuses on a particular area or aspect of biceps training. You’ve likely been using some of these exercises from week to week for quite a while, so they may be very familiar. But some moves and training schemes might be totally foreign to you, which is another great reason to tackle these tips. In addition, each week’s workout can be used in consecutive weeks.

The Most Common Workout Mistake - Born Fitness

As you know (and have experienced) I am not only big on warmups, but I consider the Warmup the cornerstone of Training for Warriors training. A common mistake in training, however, is to use either an inadequate or no warmup at all before training.  Since a trainee often thinks training itself is great at getting the heart rate up and increases core temperature, they often skip a warmup completely and jump head-first into the session. In most of the training books and DVDs out there, a warmup is quickly glazed over as if it is unimportant. This is definitely not the case and unfortunately sets the tone as if it doesn’t count.

elitefts™ Powerlifting Experience II

Words couldn't describe this experience alone. If you asked me in person how it was, grab a six pack because I would be talking for a very long time. First off just to walk into the S4 Compound was a dream seeing all this sick equipment, the chrome plates, 4 monolifts, all these specialty bars, etc. Meeting and working with my coaches was a dream come true. I mean many of us watch these top guys on Youtube, or live streams of those big meets, but to actually meet these guys and work with them is an incredible experience. These guys are here to help you, they want to see you succeed. I hit 2 PRs today, and learned so much more that I am excited to take back with me in training. I also believe everyone in my group hit at least 1 PR today. Also awesome story... So I was walking out of the bathroom, hands were wet from the sanitizer and I see Dave Tate. I tell him, "Dave thanks for putting this on, this experience is incredible". He walks up to me to shake my hand and I tell him, "Sorry my hands are wet, I don't want to get yours wet." So he grabs my hand to shake it and says, "Oh I don't give a f***, thanks for coming.

Life Happens - Born Fitness

One of the bigger problems in this industry is that we have too many details to worry about that we lose sight of what really matters. We stress over all the small things and in doing so living a “healthy life” feels like a burden that we either reject the healthy behaviors or become obsessed to the point that it cannibalizes other areas of our lives.
