Rapid weight loss: 4 ways to accelerate your fat-loss

Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - There isn’t enough time to engage with everyone who wants to talk with you today. In fact, most people seem to be a noisy distraction now. Nevertheless, there is much to be learned from others if you can push past your own assumptions. Letting go of your certainty is the key to receiving a missing piece of information which unlocks the door to your success. Maya Angelou wrote, “Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.”

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.

Tip: Bad Ankles, Bad Squat? | T Nation

A lot of coaches try to get people's hips or knees to do this or that, all the while ignoring that if the ankles aren't moving properly, the knees and hips can't move properly for efficient load distribution. For the hips to open up, you have to have adequate hip abduction. The knees should move out to the side when that happens very naturally. However, if the ankles are pronating and not supinating, then none of that will ever happen.

8 at-home workouts to lose weight and build muscle

You can build muscle and lose weight all in the privacy of your home so you’re free to sweat in solitude or bring the house down with your favorite workout songs. Because, while there are times when the gym is the perfect respite from a long day at work (you can get in, sweat, get out, and feel completely renewed), there are others when the gym is one giant irritation. There are too many people clanking weights, or chatting when they should be clanking weights, and all you want to do is walk back through the door and head home. Well, guess what? You can do that—and still get a killer workout in.

13 Set-Rep Schemes for Brand New Growth | T Nation

I typically do multiple sets working my way up in weight. In the video, I'm using both bands and chains to deload weight at the bottom of the movement, but that's not necessary. The key is to work up to a tough working weight whereby you'd do 4 sets of 6-8 reps. However, rather than doing all 4 working sets, only do 3. The first two are standard 6-8 rep sets, but the third is a challenge set where you'd do as many reps as possible.


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

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.

The Single Most Important Rule for Eating Clean, According to a Doctor

I wanted to write a book about how we can reduce—not totally eliminate, because it’s very difficult to completely eliminate—processed foods, and how we should really focus on benefiting from nutritional powers of foods in their more natural state. What if we got rid of toxic byproducts, and hormone disrupters, and antibiotics, and for 20 days ate as clean as we could? I believed people could see a dramatic difference.

Lost Baggage and JM Presses!

Client 1: He is very upset about his bench press. He is doing great with reps but when the weight gets heavier he gets stapled to the bench. Finally last week I programmed a heavy single and I knew what would happen...he would get pinned down to the bench and miss something that he thought would be easy! So I get an email and he is crushed mentally and ready to give up on bench press, yet I'm excited! Why? Because finally he sees that the heavier the weight on the bar is the less he drives with his feet, that the little mistake of dropping the bar below his elbows really does matter, and that his butt is still coming up off of the bench BECAUSE he is relaxing on the way down till he has to actually press. Yet I think he should be THRILLED by this because what I also see is that all he needs to do is to be able to JM Press 255 x 6, go through his rotator cuff exercises with the 60's, and he needs 90 sessions of scapular retraction exercises to turn what he can 3 board bench into his full bench press off of his chest! THAT IS IT!


20 Muscle-Building Monkey Bar Exercises For a Killer Bodyweight Workout

Tip: Stop Stretching Your Lower Back | T Nation

These tiny muscles don't act as dynamic movers that alter positions at the spinal segments themselves, but rather sensory organs that in a split second turn on or turn off widespread tone throughout a region according to perceived threat. That threat is usually deep spinal flexion combined with contact into the lumbar region, whether it's from driving your lower back down into the ground hugging the knees to the chest, or sticking a lacrosse ball into your lower back and rolling it around. Once these bad boys turn on, it takes hard work to get them to turn back off, resulting in normalized tone through key musculature in the hip, spine and pelvis.


The Best Way to Build Your Butt | T Nation

With the split squat, there are a few cues to remember. For one, if you're doing these with the rear leg on a bench, think about the knee of that leg going down and back as you keep the weight on the heal of the planted foot. This will help you load the glutes instead of getting too much knee flexion on the planted foot, which loads the quads more. Also make sure and use iso-holds at the end of each set for about 10 seconds, only coming about three-fourths of the way back up. This will really torch the glute medius.

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). If he took twice as much as needed though, yeah, we could call him a steroid user.
