Ladies, it's time to toss aside those plastic-covered dumbbells and grab some iron. If you're thinking about heading down the powerlifting path, here are some tips to help you find your way.

Musclepharm Combat 100% Whey at - Best Prices on Combat 100% Whey!

COMBAT 100% WHEY is a low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting protein supplement with minimal fat and low sodium that delivers fast digesting protein sources to build and maintain lean muscle mass. Combat 100% Whey combines two of the fastest digesting, most efficient, and cleanest protein sources available: Whey Protein Isolate and Whey protein Concentrate. Whey protein has the highest bioavailability among complete proteins (protein that contains a complete amino acid profile of all 9 essential amino acids) and also has the highest absorption rate among any other proteins. Whey protein isolate is a concentrated whey protein molecule “isolated” to remove any impurities such as fats, or sugars. This process, in turn, reduces the size of the molecule making it easier for the body to absorb and faster to digest. Additionally, Combat 100% Whey is low in sodium at only 65mg per serving. This can reduce the risk of excess water retention, further ensuring that the mass that you put on is the mass that you intended.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, April 28, 2018

Saturday, April 28, 2018 - Your high level of productivity could surprise everyone today, including yourself. You might not start off with such an ambitious agenda, but as you begin to check items off your to-do list, the truth begins to dawn on you. When it comes time for kicking back or kicking up your heels, choose to listen to taskmaster Saturn now as he gently reminds you that your progress is a reward unto itself. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Life is a journey, not a destination.”

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.

Leg Training

*Use good form and go up in weight doing sets of 8 reps.  Once you can’t get 8 reps do 6’s. My training partner helped me with forced reps on Set 7 and on the ensuing drop set.  Finish your last set with an isohold using the weight in which you dropped to on the previous set. Hold the weight with your leg bent about 45 degrees for as long as possible.  I got 35 seconds.

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: 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?

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.
