Good Form vs. Bad Form: What You Don't Know | T Nation

So, if you're a competitive lifter or just care a lot about being strong, "good technique" often means finding the easiest way to lift the weight. For example, if you were attempting to break your one-rep max record on the squat, you wouldn't lower the bar over a 6-count and then pause for 1-second at the bottom before ascending back to the top. You'd instead use the easiest tempo.

The Best Shoulder Workout Moves to Avoid Injury

Do 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps for each of the moves, resting 1 minute between sets. Use heavier dumbbells for the first exercise (incline-bench isometric row) and then lower the weight for the remaining 3; try using around 40 pounds and 15 pounds, respectively. Avoid setting down the dumbbells between the last 3 moves. Once you’re done, rest 2 minutes and finish with a brachial, or dead, hang. Complete this circuit 2 or 3 times a week.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, June 14, 2018

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - You could fall in love in a big way today. But whether you’re captivated by a person, a place or an idea, your feelings are disruptive to the status quo. It’s nearly impossible to continue with your day-to-day routine when your emotions are so unstable. However, you will likely return to your senses on a moment’s notice once you realize that things are not always as they appear. Personal ups and downs rise and fall like the tides, but your responsibilities remain. Don’t be daunted; just grit your teeth and get to work.

Tip: Perform All Rep Ranges, Regardless of Goals | T Nation

Conventional wisdom led us to believe that low-rep ranges (1-5) build strength, moderate-rep ranges (6-12) were best for hypertrophy or size, and high-rep ranges (more than 12) develop muscular endurance. While that's partly true, the problem is in the application of the idea.

12 Kitchen Swaps All Athletes Make

You’ve probably figured this out by now, but it’s not easy to get fit if you have a fridge full of fatty and high-carb foods. However, it’s a lot harder to figure out what you need to stay stocked up on in order to maintain your weight. Here’s a list of common kitchen items you should trash, and what you should stock up on.

Lifters Over 30 Need to Get Real | T Nation

A lot of coaches say that lifting weights for higher reps makes you more prone to injury. In the case of training methodologies that have you racing the clock, it's true. But sets of 10-12 or even 15 reps of a compound movement shouldn't be outside the vocabulary of a recreational lifter who has his health and wellness first in mind, along with building plenty of muscle and strength.

Tip: What You Really Think Of Bodybuilding | T Nation

And really, if you think about it, lifting weights is sort of like riding a bicycle. You may love to ride your bike but that doesn't necessarily mean you can name a single professional bicycle rider, and it doesn't mean you enjoy watching other people race. The fun and the reward is in the doing, not the watching.

Optimum Nutrition Pro Pre at - Best Prices on Pro Pre!

received a sample of this product. I was impressed with how little water was recommended, 5-6 ounces. I opted for 5 since most pre's tend to be a little watered down. bad idea. the flavor was pretty intense. While i thought overall the flavor was pretty good, its is not very clean. it leaves a moderate after taste and has some chalkiness to it.. My workout for the day was chest.. which for this week is pretty long.. 37 sets 390 reps... I fell flat at about set 28... My usual pre workout is prekaged. I will be sticking with it.


The trick is to find a decent take-out place that won’t ruin your diet. And new evidence says this is trickier than you even thought. A study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics described the work of nutritionists from Tufts University who assessed the caloric content of more than 360 meals from non-chain restaurants (meaning their nutrition info was not published) across several major cities. The scientists felt that 92 percent of meal contained more calories than a person would require. On average, meals from Chinese, Italian, and American eateries contained the most calories. Meals from Greek and Japanese restaurants contained the fewest. They found that the difference between the average Italian meal and the average Greek meal was a whopping 500 calories. Time to say arrivederci to your local red-sauce joint.

Lower Cortisol By Getting More of THIS Everyday Nutrient

Research shows that because vitamin C has a powerful effect on the immune system, it can help to clear cortisol after intense exercise or during serious mental stress. For example, when men consumed 1 gram of vitamin C a day for 2 weeks, they had significantly lower cortisol after a 2.5-hour endurance run than a placebo group.

The 25 best exercises for your lower abs

First, a quick physiology lesson: Your rectus abdominis is really one, long muscle that includes both your “upper” and “lower” abs. So, there are no exercises that explicitly isolate either half individually (even though you may “feel the burn” more so in one area than other). Still, there are things you can do to really make that lower area pop, says Don Saladino, CPT, owner of  Drive 495 .

Tip: Deadlift Star Complexes | T Nation

 Now we're moving into the strength-speed portion of the curve. Focus on explosion, not on the load used. If you start from blocks it's better for starting explosive strength (e.g. sprint start) and if you start from the hang it's better for movements where you have to quickly switch from eccentric to concentric (e.g. running and jumping)

Tip: A Back Builder You've Never Tried | T Nation

The isometric holds will turn on the key players for performance. For the Kelso shrugs, that's the upper back. After the isometric holds, you'll notice increased upper back involvement during your training. When your upper back muscles work as they should, you'll be able to press more, throw better, and strike harder.

Tip: Infinity Singles for Big Triceps | T Nation

With that in mind, I like something I call "infinity singles" for triceps, which is a riff on rest-pause training. You start with heavy sets of around 5 reps, then work your way down to doing singles as you fatigue. You keep the single reps going until failure, which surprisingly takes a while.

Bad Digestion is Killing Your Testosterone | T Nation

A good portion of your immune system is located in your intestinal tract and, in some places, it's separated from your intestinal contents by a lining that's only a single cell thick. If this lining becomes permeable, food particles can slip into your bloodstream. When this happens, your body attacks these particles with antibodies and produces chemicals called cytokines that raise your levels of chronic inflammation.
