Never-Ending Natural Gains: Neuro Type 3 | T Nation

Type 3's can be held back by the fear of injury and they tend to be more sensitive to pain. If anxiety is too high, it can make them tighten up, especially in the flexor muscles (front delts, pecs, hip flexors, hamstrings, biceps, and abs) which can negatively affect lifting mechanics and make them more prone to injuries. Both of these elements – lifting anxiety and tightening up – can make them shut down when it's time to lift.

Tip: Feel Better and Move Better in 3 Minutes | T Nation

Stand with one foot on a 45-degree angled platform or on the edge of a step if that's the best you've got. Shift your weight around your foot in a clockwise rotation for 2 or 3 rotations and then do the same counter-clockwise. The movement should be so subtle that someone watching would barely notice you're moving. This will be a big help to your ankle dorsiflexion mobility.

Tip: Two Ways to Train Abs with Bands | T Nation

Start adding weight or band resistance to your ab exercises. Increase the difficulty of the lifts the same way you would with any other body part to give it new stimulation. You wouldn't expect your legs to grow if all you did was bodyweight squats, so you can't expect your abs to grow from doing a few crunches.

Hormone Control

A number of bodybuilders have e-mailed me requesting the same thing: “Can you check out my pre-contest diet?” Time and again, their approach to dieting is the same: no carbs. A no-carb or very-low-carb plan can be effective — it almost always means fewer calories, so that’s a plus. It also means insulin, a potentially fat-storing hormone, is controlled. But it doesn’t guarantee a ripped fat-free physique. Getting ripped is about controlling calories while simultaneously keeping hormones in balance. That’s what this article is about — providing the guidelines for a hormonal profile that will keep your metabolic rate humming to burn bodyfat. Here’s the data on six main hormones you need to know about.

Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas Loves Quest Hero Bars

Hero Bar falls right in the middle between a traditional Quest Bar (~20g protein) and a Beyond Cereal Bar (12g protein). Depending on the flavor, Hero Bars have 15-17g of protein per bar. Along with that, you also get 10-11g dietary fiber and under 200 calories per bar. So what about the flavors? There are three to choose from, Blueberry Cobbler, Vanilla Caramel, and Chocolate Caramel Pecan. And honestly, these are protein bars, but you’ve never tried one that tastes and looks like this. Gooey caramel and blueberry filling provide that satisfying string of sweet stuff after every bite, but the bars themselves have very little sugar…technically.

EXCLUSIVE: Asia Monet Ray on Being a Quadruple Threat & Performing Alongside Mariah Carey

Yes, totally. When I was little, I used to watch Hannah Montana , which was probably the show that made me want to sing. I wanted to sing so badly after I watched that show! And “The Cheetah Girls”. I would sing all these songs in the car and probably annoy the heck out of my mom, but once I turned around 7 or 8 I really just wanted to get serious about singing and not just sing in the back seat with some headphones on. I actually wanted to be in the studio with some headphones on recording music for other people to listen to. And then I met my amazing vocal coach, Kelly, from New York. She has really helped me a lot she’s an incredible singer and coach.

'Baywatch' Review: A Mixture Of Sun, Fun, And Laughs

The film starts off on the beach during tryouts for the new Baywatch recruits. The leader of the squad, Mitch (Dwayne Johnson) is hell bent on putting this crew through the ringer. However, one of the recruits appears to be getting special treatment from Mitch’s boss. Matt Brody (Zac Efron) is a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist who’s mere presence could mean great publicity for a program that they county commission believe is antiquated. Mitch eventually gets the commission to agree to Brody having to go through the same tryouts as everyone else (one that involves some highly unorthodox events). Predictably, Brody makes it as well as two other lifeguards recruits played by Alexandra Daddario and Jon Bass. The narrative quickly pivots from tryouts to finding out why drugs keep washing up on the beach. It appears that the deeper they dig into the drug issue, the more dead bodies begin to appear. Mitch suspects that real estate mogul Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) is behind all of this. Matt thinks that this whole mess is best settled by the police.

Double Your Natural Gains: Neuro Type 2 | T Nation

The double progression model is when you select a rep range, like 6 to 8. You use the same weight for all your working sets. For example, 200 pounds for 4 sets. You only add weight when you can do all the work sets with the selected weight at the top of the rep range. In our example, that means they'd only add weight when they can get 4 sets of 8 with 200. If they get 8, 8, 7 and 6 reps with 200 pounds on their four work sets, they'd keep the same weight for the next workout.

4 Strategies To Boost Your Metabolism!

Long-term dieting can adversely impact your metabolism, because it causes your body to begin conserving energy, which then depresses your metabolism. It's been shown that long-term dieting negatively effects your total daily energy expenditure by reducing the number of calories you burn per day.[6] For every week you diet, aim to spend at least as many weeks off your diet. This will help provide adequate time for your metabolism to be restored to pre-diet levels and allow ample time to increase muscle mass. Ideally, the longer you can spend away from a calorie deficit, the better the impact you'll have on muscle mass, and ultimately your metabolism.

5 Reasons You Should Be Doing Dips

Some of you reading this may not be able to get to a gym for numerous reasons, leaving you to do bodyweight-only training. And in these cases dips are simply awesome, as all they require are two sturdy objects of the same height that are close enough to properly perform the movement (make sure of this before commencing). If you normally do dips with weight, you can instead slow the movement down so that you are lowering your body over 4-6 seconds and raising over 2-3, which will make it feel like you are using far heavier resistance.

Curls Curls Curls!

When it comes to building sheer mass, there is no better exercise than the barbell cheat curl. I would start the movement with a barbell at thigh level, shoulder-width grip, and nudge it into motion with a slight “kick” from my body. I’d choose a weight that was too heavy for me to curl using strict form, but not so heavy that I had to rely solely on body English to get the weight from point A to point B. The idea behind cheat curls is to get the barbell past your sticking points and let your muscles get stressed fully at the points where they would normally find the exercise easy. Because you’re stronger during the negative phase of a lift, the heavier weight used for cheat curls also lets you work the biceps during the all-important downward half of the movement.

33
When Do You Start Feeling Tired? (Getting Lean)

In my experience this what exactly what happened to me. Typically the prep is "manageable" and you can get through the normalities and movements of every day living without feeling it too much. Once I my cardio got bumped to every day and cals were cut deeper, is when things became unsustainable and not realistic or desirable to maintain. I've become ok with letting my abs get a little blurry in the off season, provided I'm lean enough to look like I work out and for good health. If it they start getting too blurry I'll dial back and lose a few pounds until I'm back to what I feel is good off season conditioning, but after a prep you definitely become OK with not being shredded all the time, because you realize what it takes to get there and maintain it, and it's just not worth it (or healthy!)

Yoke Your Traps for the Ultimate Upper-Body

As long as you're  training upper  traps for that Dwayne Johnsonesque, yoked-out look, it’s a good idea to hit the other two portions of the trapezius muscles as well: the middle and lower traps. Not so familiar with those? They’re part of the back musculature and are involved in most pullup, pulldown, and rowing movements, but zeroing in on them via isolation exercises promotes balanced development that enhances posture and reduces injury risk.

Protein Cycling

P.W. Lemon, PHD, one of the world’s most reputable protein researchers, has often stated that muscle building occurs with a protein consumption of roughly 0.7 g per pound of bodyweight a day (140 g a day for a 200 pounder). If you consumed less than that on a daily basis, you probably wouldn’t make significant gains. Although 160 g might be enough protein for a 200-pound bodybuilder, FLEX still recommends 200 g for a trainer that size, just to be on the safe side.

One simple trick for grilling asparagus

DIRECTIONS 1) Preheat grill to high heat. Take several stalks of asparagus, break off the woody part at the base, and discard. Place stalks next to one another, leaving a tiny bit of space between them. (This will allow asparagus to cook on all sides.) Skewer them crosswise at the top and bottom with toothpicks or slender bamboo sticks. 2) For the marinade, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic and mix. Brush on both sides of the “raft.” Season with a little salt and lots of pepper. 3) Place rafts on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned, 2–4 minutes per side. Sprinkle with sesame seeds as they cook. “It’s a great, healthy side dish,” says Raichlen.

39
Programming by Reps/Rep Progression

It's not really about not having any other weights to work with. It works because reps build strength more effectively than maximal loads. People really underestimate how much strength you can build mostly working in the 5-12 rep range. Heavy singles, doubles, and triples absolutely have their place in training, but they are more for becoming acclimated to lifting loads that are close to a max, so that the nervous system can handle that in competition. But those reps don't build the strength base nearly as effectively as higher reps. I personally believe that sets of 10 on the squat are the absolute best way to build it. If you did 5 sets of 10 squats forever and ever, and ate well, you could become incredibly strong. Lower reps just aren't necessary. The ONLY exception to this rule in my own training is deadlift, because higher reps are SO taxing on the body, that injury risk becomes to high for my own taste. I simply can't hit multiple sets of 8+ on the deadlift every week and expect to live through it, lol.

Arm Fix: Tri Again for Bigger Triceps

Modifying your pushdowns trains them according to the triceps’ strength curve. Beginning with your elbows back puts you in a strong position so you can lift more weight. Then, instead of extending your arms straight down, you move them forward a bit so your triceps work as they’re intended to—pushing away from you.

TEST BOOSTER by True GRIT at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on TEST BOOSTER!

Just started this yesterday. I am using it as a recovery from a cycle. it has been 2 weeks since my last dose. The first day was very good I took it at 8 am 2 pills. then 30 minutes before i worked out at 5:00. Remember this is a test booster. It isn't actual test. My first thought was i was very level all day. Kept my energy up. I wouldn't say it gave me more energy but i didn't miss a beat. Workout- i dont take anything thing for working out. Took it 30 min before the gym. I felt that i was able to stay engaged in my work out. It didn't make me want to kill the weights but it helped me stay focused and balanced. I do recommend this product to you only if you can understand that it isn't going to just make you feel like you can kick the worlds *** with it . It is to help free test in your body. You want to feel like that, take a shot of pre work out mixed with redbull. I am going to document my entire experience with this and send it to truegritness.com and Primavie

5 things women want men to know about going gray

You don’t want a flat, dense, dark-all-over color, so look for (or ask your colorist for) a formula that offers  “multiple tones” or “natural highlights.” If you’re dyeing at home, try one shade lighter than your natural color (e.g. medium brown instead of dark brown), and leave the product on for the minimum amount of time for the first go-round to avoid ending up with a helmet-head of dark, unnatural color.

16 Nutritional Rules for a Full-Body Shred

Shortcuts to packing on new muscle mass and getting ripped to the bone are frequently peddled on late-night TV, but sadly, these feats can not be accomplished with quick fixes or next-day miracles. You can, however, implement certain dietary practices that, over time, will guarantee your investment in fitness. Yes, getting in your best shape ever requires hard work in the gym, but without the proper nutrition to fuel your gains, you’re dead in the water. Feeding your body the right way is just a matter of repetition—learning and developing the kinds of dietary habits that leave your body with no choice but to respond with cover model-worthy size, strength, and detail. By applying the bulk of these 16 strategies to your diet, you’ll find that things really do fall into place automatically, even if they don’t happen overnight.

5 Shoulder Training Lessons from Johnnie Jackson

With his full quota of carbs and calories in the off-season, Jackson regularly presses 150-pound dumbbells for 15 reps, uses 100 pound dumbbells for 10 reps of side laterals, and upright rows are 335 for 12 reps. He's hoisted as much as 405 for eight reps for upright rows. In the weeks leading up to a contest, Jackson increases his reps, decreases his rest periods between sets, and does more intensifying techniques, like supersets. "“Off-season I'’ll go down to five or six reps; pre-contest I'’ll go up to 15-20 reps,"” he states, "“so it's a pretty big shock to my body, using a lot more reps and resting a lot less between sets."

“We’re very comfortable with where we want [John Wick] to go in the third one and what Keanu wants to do,” Stahelski said. “We want not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world…I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two that I’d like to go back to on and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I’d like to show you cooler and more intricate ones. We want to show you cool and intricate details.”
