C4 Pre Workout | Cellucor

BEWARE: This product may bring on anxiety attacks! This product gave me anxiety attacks and night sweats - racing thoughts, uncontrollable shaking, sense of fear/dread and panic. I had to stop using it. If you're a person such as myself with any kind of history of panic/anxiety attacks there is a great chance this will bring them on. After much research I narrowed it down to 2 ingredients in this version of C4 that gave me the exact symptoms of my attacks. L-Dopa, or Velvet Bean extract, and the very common artificial sweetener Sucralose (Splenda). So please take my experienced advice and avoid this C4 blend! (and any others with these 2 ingredients for that matter) I assure you I'm not just someone looking to bash a product, but an honest former user with a very bad experience. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and all the best on your fitness journey. -Andy

Tip: Explode, Then Squat | T Nation

For years we've known about the benefits of something called "post-activation potentiation." Get warmed up, then do a heavy, low-volume squat or deadlift. Afterward, do a jump or sprint. What happens? Explosive jumping and sprinting performance increases after the heavy lift.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, May 25, 2018

Friday, May 25, 2018 - You might not be at the top of your game today -- or, at least, that’s what you think. Actually, your self-esteem may be more affected than your performance when vulnerable Venus opposes somber Saturn in your 2nd House of Self-Worth. Thankfully, you can overcome most difficulties with your current methodical approach to problem solving. But you must concentrate and not scatter your healing energy if you wish to achieve success. Oprah Winfrey said, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

Are you crazy enough to do 'Murph' on Memorial Day Weekend?

Murph also appeals to a slightly wider audience than do most CrossFit workouts. “I like that it’s sort of available to everybody,” Wells says. “All you need is a bar to hang from.” The running and calisthenics shift the advantage away from tank-sized weightlifters and toward lighter, more patient athletes who can whip through bodyweight exercises with an economy of motion and a minimum of psychological stress.

The Top 25 Most Intense Hollywood Bulk-Ups of All Time

Some stars had the help of trainers to get them over the top. Trainer or no trainer, it meant getting into the gym and lifting some heavy stuff. No matter how they did it, these stars all impressively muscled up for their roles.

Tip: Solid Walk-Out, Solid Squat | T Nation

First, unracking the bar without being tight will make the bar feel a heckuva lot heavier, which can psych you out, and walking backward with that suboptimal tension is dangerous. Plus it's harder to assume a strong setup right before squatting if you didn't start that way. So before you take the bar out of the rack make sure that:

Tip: How To Do a Bar Muscle-Up | T Nation

This version creates greater momentum from the hips. The thought here is to bring your hips to the bar, though you may notice that my hips don't go all the way to the bar here. This is because there's another bar below the top bar where I'm doing the muscle-up. Let's try not to ram our bodies into bars.

Tip: Try This For Bigger Traps | T Nation

Let's cut the bullshit and get to the brass tacks. For decades, men built slabs of muscle with simple, three day-per-week training programs. They trained their whole bodies in one brief workout session and they grew big and strong. Scoff all you want, but tens of thousands of trainees can't be wrong.

Tip: 4 Minutes to Fitness | T Nation

Oddly enough, it looks like these dads might have been onto something, as a new study has shown that a brief but brutal 4-minute workout, composed entirely of calisthenics, was about as effective a cardio protocol as classic sprint training or high intensity interval training.

8 Lessons From Glute Girls | T Nation

Bros will often say they want to bring up a muscle group, then do a few extra sets for said muscle group once a week, and believe it's enough. Or maybe they have one day dedicated to working that muscle and believe that "volume trumps all." Glute girls would laugh at you for this. Your efforts would be the butt of their jokes. If you really want to bring up a lagging muscle group, give it a reason to grow, and give it that reason often.

Tip: Buy Only This Type of Chicken | T Nation

And the fat the modern industrial chicken does have has been horribly mucked up because they're fed grains instead of grass. Chickens are one of the few land-based sources of the essential fatty acid DHA, but today's typical mass-produced, soy-eating chicken has less than 25 mg. of the stuff, compared with about 170 mg. in a 1980's chicken. That gives chicken a 1 to 15 omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, when ideally you'd like to see a ratio of 1 to 5 or lower.

Tip: Two Drills to Correct Forward Head Posture | T Nation

For some reason, standing up straight is hard. Many things can affect where your body naturally rests, anything from a badly designed training program, to stress, to just plain using your phone or computer too much. Shoulder pain, neck pain, and lower back pain can all stem from FHP, and if you have it then you're more likely to get training injuries.

The 4 Kinds of Steroid Users | T Nation

Today, the steroid issue has gray areas. Most men can go to a doctor and get a 'script for testosterone if their tests come back low. Are those men "steroid" users? Well, yeah, kinda. But they're just legally getting their T levels back up to normal because low T is a medical condition (male hypogonadism).

The Greatest War Movies of All Time

“The best war movies are, at least to some extent, anti-war movies,” says Craig Detweiler, filmmaker, author, and director of The Center for Entertainment, Media, and Culture at Pepperdine University. “They show us the pain and struggle on the battlefield in a way that makes us consider the high cost of engaging in battle. A bad war movie is dishonest about the hidden costs of war, whether that’s the personal cost to soldiers or the national costs to governments. War is something that should never be romanticized.”

11 Ways to Boost Your Sexual Confidence

Sex is a confidence problem waiting to happen. Even if everything in the boudoir has worked out so far, most people are bound for difficulties at some point in their sexual experiences. “Everybody is having (some sort of) confidence issues when it comes to sex,” says Petra Zebroff , relationship counselor and sex therapist.
