11 Damn Good Deadlift Tips | T Nation

Unfortunately, there's a very good chance you've only ever used conventional deads, so you may not even know if a different style suits you better. There's the wide stance sumo, the not-quite-as-wide semi-sumo (or modified sumo) and any sort of in-between, not quite sumo/not quite semi/but totally where your body needs to be-stance. You need to take some time to rotate through different setups to see if you're really doing what's best or if you're simply doing what's familiar.

8 Scientifically Proven Tactics to Stay Lean and Muscular

The “low-fat” era is over—we now know that processed carbs like white bread, pasta, and sugary cereals contribute more to obesity than the fat that comes from whole foods. The main reason: Fat is filling. Processed foods are easy to overeat. “The key is to eat food that makes it really difficult to overeat,” says visiting MIT scientist and InsideTracker founder Gil Blander, Ph.D. Don’t be afraid to use a tablespoon of coconut oil when cooking or to add avocado to a salad.

The MATADOR Intermittent Diet | T Nation

This approach works well with gym rats, too. Anyone who's followed an aggressive long-term fat loss diet can tell you that gym performance will eventually suffer. It's nearly inevitable that you'll lose some strength and muscle if you diet long and hard enough. However, cycling calories back up, as prescribed by intermittent dieting, should prevent losses in strength and muscle.

The Problem With Online Rivalries Like Jeremy Buendia Vs Brandon Hendrickson | GI News

Shawn Ray criticizes the recent trend of bodybuilding online beefs. Last week Brandon Hendrickson posted on social media a beef he's been privately having with Jeremy Buendia. This can be added to a long list of online rivalries, or beefs, that have been invading the sport of bodybuilding proper. A few years ago the debate used to be whether or not a bodybuilding rivalry like Kai Greene vs Phil Heath took away from the sport. But at least that was on stage - now we have beefs happening over Instagram. Our very own Shawn Ray took a look at the latest online rivalry story and breaks down his take on the whole concept of online beefs. Do they help the sport make it more exciting? Do they hurt it?

What Is Mobility Training: How to Prevent Injury and Improve Strength

“Inadequate mobility and stability lead to about 90% of the injuries that come into our physical therapy practice,” says Wickham. Of course, no one cares about their injury risk until one seemingly typical lift goes awry in the matter of a few seconds. But you should. Just 15 minutes of mobility warmup work every day can prevent a devastating injury—torn rotator cuff, slipped disc—that’ll keep you out of the gym (and in a lot of pain) for months.

How to Build Muscle: The Basic Guide for Beginners

If your aim is to put on muscle and you’re eating to sustain growth, it’s counterproductive to break a sweat on the treadmill or go for a bike ride, right? Actually, no. “Cardio holds many major benefits for people who wish to build a lean physique and there are very rare circumstances in which you should avoid it completely,” Adam says. Your personal circumstances will dictate how much you need, though. For example, if you have some fat to shed, you’ll want enough sessions to facilitate that—up to three 45-minute steady-state workouts (like running, biking, or swimming at a consistent pace) or 15-30 minute high-intensity interval (HIIT) sessions. On the other hand,  if you’re a hard-gainer (a.k.a., skinny), you want just enough cardio to strengthen your heart and get the blood pumping to those hard-worked muscles to facilitate recovery. That might mean moderate-intensity 10-minute steady-state bouts as a closer to your lifting routines.

Once we know that the resistance program used Cybex machines with what appears to be a muscular endurance training program (8-12 reps, 3 sets— or is it hypertrophy? The weight or percent of the 1RM isn’t mentioned in the study, so we don’t know for sure), while the aerobic training group exercised at a fairly vigorous intensity (75 percent of the max oxygen uptake is 80 percent of heart rate max) it’s not surprising to hear that the aerobic exercise was more effective at burning fat than machine lifting. Another concern with how the study results were presented was that most of the news reports shouted that jogging or cardio was best for burning belly fat. This implies that cardio will help you lose the fat that you can grab that covers the abdominals.  This fat is called subcutaneous fat, but the study actually tested the effect of the different training programs on visceral fat—the kind of fat that is deep inside the body and surrounds the organs or even gets into organs such as the liver.

Tip: Rest-Pause for Size & Strength | T Nation

If you lift a heavier weight for more reps you provide the stimulus for building strength and size. This is precisely what rest-pause training allows. You'll lift heavy enough to train high-threshold muscle fibers and create progressive overload to build size and strength.
