Training In Your 40s VS Training High School & College Athletes • Zach Even-Esh
The older you get, the harder the training gets! It's tougher to make gains and you can forget about that "maintenance" BS program. If you're not getting better, you're getting worse. I NEVER use the word "maintenance" when training anyone, including in season for athletes. Think about it, how weak does it sound when you …

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
The Only 9 Circuit Workouts You Need
In a perfect world, there would be one workout that you could do all of the time and still see results and never get bored. In reality, your wants and needs are always changing, as is the space and equipment you have access to and the time you have to spend. Plus , to continue improving and stay motivated, you need an arsenal of routines at your disposal. They’re here. We asked Aaron Guy and Derek Jameson, trainers at the new The Phoenix Effect gym in Los Angeles, to create these effective circuits. The routines provide fresh ways to get in a great workout — no matter what kind of time you have, or place and tools you’re working with.

Tip: Glucose Monitoring for Fat Loss | T Nation
If the blood sugar is out of range two hours after you've eaten, then you'd need to investigate your diet. What's called the "first phase insulin response" happens within a couple of minutes of consuming food. This can be dysfunctional due to gastrointestinal issues or early signs of beta-cell problems. And it can be seen in a general way with blood glucose monitoring where the blood glucose stays really high in the first hour and a half after eating.
The Ultimate Performance Enhancing Multivitamin Supplement. Loaded with Highly Bioavailable Vitamin Cofactors and High Doses of Beta-Alanine and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate. Anavite is far beyond a mere high potency multivitamin. It's really three supplements in one. A high potency athlete's multivitamin/mineral formula with optima, clinically validated doses of Beta-Alanine and Carnipure (L-Carnitine L-Tartrate) for vastly increasing endurance and nitric oxide levels while reducing recovery time, thus optimally increasing aerobic and anaerobic athletic performance. Fully loaded with highly bioavailable vitamin cofactors such as methylcobalamin and powerful minerals such as methlyselenocysteine you can expect that Anavite will exceed your expectations in a high potency multivitamin & mineral formulation. To raise the bar even further, Gaspari researchers including 2 full grams of powerful recovery aide Carnipure (L-Carnitine L-Tartrate) which has also been shown to increase vasodilation, nitric oxide leves and increase androgen receptor density. Lastly, while other companies under does beta-alanine, Anavite includes over a full 3 gram daily does of this powerful amino acid which is the dosing threshold clinically shown to increase both anaerobic and aerobic performance.
Tip: The Forgotten 6x6 Protocol | T Nation
You must complete all six sets in as little time as possible, resting only 30 seconds between sets. That's where the training density comes in. While Gironda's recommendations were to shoot for rest periods of 30 seconds at most, he had his advanced bodybuilders resting only 15 seconds between sets.
Plazma™ Brutal Workout Formula for Enhanced Growth & Recovery - Biotest
Intrigued by this effect, Tim starts thinking about how else he might use the formula. He thinks to himself, "This thing is crazy because, during the most extreme physical demands, we have muscle pulling in nutrients as if it were a vacuum, and the effect completely revolutionizes sports performance. Let's see if we can get a similar effect with muscle growth and recovery. Whatever this is doing for endurance athletes, it should do substantially more for bodybuilders and power athletes."

Tip: Your 1RM Doesn't Really Matter | T Nation
With single-rep sets, you're really only developing your neural efficiency: the ability to maximally recruit motor units in the trained muscles. While improved neural efficiency isn't a bad thing, 1RM attempts have a much higher risk of injury, and they don't provide enough time under tension or metabolic damage to stimulate muscle growth.
Tip: Challenge Sets for Enormous Legs | T Nation
I like these for a couple reasons: First, they shock the body by pushing you beyond mental limits, and you MUST push yourself. Second, when you throw out a predetermined rep number you typically far exceed what you thought possible going into the set. I think I got 16 reps in the video with a weight normally used for 6-8. Knowing you have fewer total sets to do, and that the challenge set is a single balls-out-effort, frees you up to not hold back.
Tip: 3 New Rep Protocols for Gains | T Nation
You figure out what rep range you're going to use for the "set" – let's say it's 8 reps for presses in the Hammer Strength machine. Don't start with your 8 rep max though. Start lighter. You do 8 reps, then with almost no rest, you slap on a little more weight and do 8 reps. Right after that you slap on a little weight and do 8 reps. (You may be adding 10 pounds per side each round.)
Training to Do Your First Pull-Up
I was asked why I would want to write a question-and-answer book. It is really a simple answer: training itself is one continuous question. As we train and provide the right answers, we make progress. If our answers are wrong or incomplete then progress is slowed or stopped. There is power in a question. Humbling yourself, asking a question, and being open will allow you to find the correct answer more quickly. I have been training for over 25 years and I am still asking many questions. Though we are all training to be better, we are all in different places in our journey. I wrote this as a way to talk with you, not at you. My answers and ideas are meant to empower you so you can find your own path. Some of you wanted to be told what to do and others were looking for ideas. These are your questions.

7 Workouts You Can Do in Your Living Room
What isn’t part of the battle? Stressing out about what equipment you do or don’t have. Durkin says that bodyweight workouts can be just as effective as sessions on cutting-edge equipment. And while ideally you should do a mix of both bodyweight and weighted exercises, if you don’t have access to a gym, you can get surprising results from sweating in your own living room — or hotel, or airport terminal, or office.
The Best Damn Push-Ups Article, Period! | T Nation
No matter which type of push-up you're performing, always set up in the "arrow formation." Basically, this means that if you took a snapshot from the aerial view the push-ups position would look like an arrow, not the letter T. This position is easier on the shoulder joint and leads to higher EMG activation of the pecs and triceps.
The Fit Guy's Guide to Packing a Carry-On
“Handlebars create these reservoirs in your bag,” said Sam. It’s the perfect spot to tuck your workout clothes, since it’s okay if they get wrinkled from being stuffed into a small space. Once you’ve filled in the gaps at the bottom of your bag, you have an even layer to add stacks of folded clothes that are bigger and more delicate.
The Best Workout Classes in the U.S. for Men: 2018
Fitness classes started to stem from a desire to shock or serve as the backdrop for an Instagram, rather than a strong base in functional movements and proper form. But that’s not the full picture—merely a blip…a very odd, hard-to-ignore blip.
Squat Like You Mean It | T Nation
Starting in a quadruped position, flex one hip to 90 degrees. From there, rock side to side and limit movement from the lumbar spine while focusing more on the hip capsule itself. It's important to note that this is a self-limiting exercise. Don't be too concerned with range of motion, just try to improve on it.
Forced Anabolism: How to Overeat | T Nation
Good, use it! This is body building ! The tough thing here is to figure out – for you – how long it will take to "hold" a new set point before your brain, endocrine system, and tissues accept it as the new you. In our experience, this takes about six months. It's not exact science and the whole set point concept has multiple mechanisms behind it. We do know that some individuals respond more (or less) favorably to over and under-feeding. In any case, we've seen this approach work for otherwise stuck, small, and frustrated guys.

The 3 Best Ways to Save Money on Baggage When You Fly
Riding With the Grom: A Skateboarding Road Trip Up the California Coast
What the road gave us, I realized, was time without distractions. Within the confines of our small car, we got to just hang out. After a brief stop to skate at El Estero skate park in Monterey, we ventured south to Big Sur. The kid was clearly bummed that there would be a single day of the trip that didn’t involve skating. But I held my ground, explaining that the wild beaches and epic views were going to blow his Brooklyn mind. We drove with the top down, and soon Carlos put his phone down (voluntarily!) and stared out the window. We arrived at the Ventana campground and checked into our glampsite beneath the redwoods before eating dinner and watching the sunset at Nepenthe.

Carb Cycling for Fat Loss | T Nation
Although I'm more a "sets & reps" oriented coach and writer, I too have my own spin on carb cycling. It's one that I've used successfully with many athletes including myself; last year I went from 220 to173 for a meet using a plan similar to what I'm about to unveil here.

20 Total-Body Workouts, In Five Moves (Or Less)
You know those workouts that seemingly combine every kind of exercise and piece of equipment in the gym? You won’t find any of those here. That’s because you don’t need a bunch of tools, time, or moves to target every muscle and burn serious calories. We asked some of the country’s top trainers to design total-body routines that hit these requirements: fewer than two pieces of equipment, under 40 minutes, and no more than five exercises. What we got are the workouts that we want to do: They’re all fun, fast, and effective.

Five Exercises You Should Stop Doing... Forever! | T Nation
If you insist on doing your part to keep rolling shrugs in style, at least roll your shoulders backward when you do them. That way you can say you do it to give your scapular retractors (rhomboids, middle, and lower traps) a little extra work. No, it doesn't work them well at all since the resistance is going down and your retractors pull back, but hey, at least it's something.
