Velocity Diet® Plan - The New Science of Rapid Body Transformation - Biotest

I soon asked Chad Waterbury to write a custom training plan, specially designed just for those on this diet. To test out the latest version of the plan, I put T Nation reader Gus Pancho on the latest version of the V-Diet. Gus is 37 years old and lost 40 pounds and nine inches from his belly during and after his Velocity Diet experience.

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.

10 At-home Kettlebell Workouts to Build Total-Body Muscle

The kettlebell is an extremely versatile piece of training equipment to have at home. Kettlebells offer unique training benefits over dumbbells—the uneven weight distribution will challenge you to control the weight as you swing, press, or pull. Plus, kettlebells will add extra challenges when it comes to grip and core stability. It’s a good idea to have your home equipped with a nice set of kettlebells—you never know when you’ll be stuck inside, especially during the winter.

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.

Tip: Carrying Around a Jug of Water is Stupid | T Nation

Ah, maybe I'm being too harsh. Maybe carrying around those jugs is an homage to Adam Sandler's "Waterboy" movie. If that's their rationale, we can't help them, but for those of you who think drinking all that water is healthier or even necessary, you've likely got a case of hydrocephaly.

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.

Master the Ridiculously Strict Pull-Up | T Nation

One reason people can't do a strict pull-up is because their core is either weak or not activating correctly. If you struggle to keep the ribs down during a pull-up, try adding the following exercises into your routine to retrain your core to brace properly.

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? Get a complete report of bodybuilding online rivalries in our GI News update above. Bodybuilding, fitness, weight training - all on the Generation Iron Fitness Network!

Tip: A Pre-Meal Trick For Fat Loss - Biotest

The first time I ever got lean was when I was 20. While I did use caloric restriction (no diet is magical enough to allow you to lose fat while being in a caloric surplus), I can't say that my diet was great. I tried to make good food choices, but I also ate things that are typically considered a no-no when trying to lose fat.

Tip: Where Does Body Fat Go When You Lose It? | T Nation

It's amazing that the real answer is known to so few. After all, those of us in this business spend a really big chunk of time trying to figure out how to defeat fat. If Sun Tzu was a nutritionist, he'd be thrashing around in his tomb or crypt because modern nutritionists not only don't know their enemy, they've completely mischaracterized it.

Tip: The One-Second Bench Press Fix | T Nation

I once endured a five year period where I couldn't do any type of horizontal pressing, like barbell bench pressing, without shoulder pain. Then a friend suggested I give benching another try but with a full one-second pause at the chest, which I'd never done before, cause, ya know, I'm a dude and a pause might lower by bench by 5 or 10 pounds.

Tip: 3 Ways to Master the Mind-Muscle Connection | T Nation

Bodybuilders have always talked about the importance of the mind-muscle connection. It's a variation of the idea of "internal focus of attention" which comes from the field of motor learning. It's the process of actively thinking about the target muscle during training and then feeling it work through the full range of motion.

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.

If you've been benching with a wider grip, you'll take an ego hit because obviously you won't be benching as much as you had been before this switch. But rest assured, you'll eventually climb back to where you were. Your pecs and shoulders will thank you for it.

The 10 Best Foods to Eat Before a Workout

For your pre-workout nutrition, you want to focus on foods that are high in carbs, moderate in protein, and low in fat and fiber. “Fat and fiber slow down digestion and can cause gastrointestinal upset during your workouts,” Mazur says. “Carbs are your main fuel source for activity and, just as important, it’s the primary fuel source for your brain. Additionally, the more substantial the meal is, the more time you want to allow for digestion, so it’s not sitting in your stomach.”

The 5 Most Worthless Exercises of All Time | T Nation

In some CrossFit classes you have the option to "scale down" if you can't do an exercise as prescribed. Let's say you have pull-ups in a WOD. If you can't do pull-ups, instructors normally have you do banded pull-ups. But some people are too weak (or heavy) for those. What do they do then? They put a box below the pull-up bar. The person stands on the box with his or her hands grabbing the pull-up bar. They're instructed to "jump and pull" until their chin is above the bar.
