Train Hard, Get Hurt, Keep Making Gains | T Nation

This might seem like a minor distinction, but it really isn't. Imagine that squatting has been iffy lately due to low back pain, and you're scheduled to squat today. If you don't have a plan B already programmed and sure enough your low back starts bitching at you when you start squatting, you're likely to make bad decisions out of sheer frustration. For example, you might just forge ahead despite the pain, or you might become exasperated and just leave the gym.

The Top 3 Mobility Exercises for Lifters | T Nation

The problem? They're often functionally shortened and weakened as a result of our chronic daily positions and not experiencing mobility through a full range of motion. Luckily the lateral lunge will help you learn how to use the adductors through extended ranges of motion to stabilize the hips, pelvis, and lumbar spine as a unit. Once you master the lateral lunge with pristine stability and unlocked mobility, add the rotational component through the thoracic cage and shoulders.

Tip: Two Backside Exercises You Should Be Doing | T Nation

Your posterior chain is the musculature on the back side of your body from the neck to the Achilles. With all the time we spend sitting, and all the time we lifters spend pushing, the posterior chain needs more attention than you're likely giving it. There are two specific posterior chain exercises that you probably aren't doing, or at least aren't doing enough:

Tip: Build Better Pecs With Metabolic Stress | T Nation

Slightly bend your arms and arc the weights down to your sides until you feel a stretch across your chest. (Don't bring the dumbbells to your ears because you'll place too much stress on the shoulder joints. Kettlebells allow more range of motion though.)

Food is a lot like drugs. The right kind can add years to your life and add life to your years. The wrong kind can suck the life-force out of you faster than your succubus of an ex girlfriend. A new study shows us just how powerful good food can be.

The 10 Most Common Sex Mistakes

There are a number of things that can go wrong the first time you're in bed with a new partner, and most consenting adults understand that. There's a lot to feel out about another person before reaching the right comfort level and sexual rhythm. Any awkward post-sex vibes that you project will make her uneasy as well, so you're better off relaxing and basking in the glow, bro.

Carbon by Layne Norton Prep at - Best Prices on Prep!

A great example of this is using Carnipure as the source of l-carnitine. Other forms of carnitine are very popular in supplements, but usually that is because they are less expensive to incorporate. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate found in carnipure however is the only form of carnitine demonstrated to support recovery, decrease muscle soreness, support performance, and increase androgen receptor density in muscle cells*. Is it more expensive than some other forms of Carnitine? Yes. Could we ‘get by’ on some of our claims using other forms of carnitine that were not used in clinical research? Absolutely. Would we feel good about it? Absolutely not. That’s why in every Carbon product you will only find the highest quality, clinically backed ingredients, so that you can be sure that you are getting the most effective, science based, products on the market*.

Should you go on a group date?

"One of the best ways to meet people is by telling your friends that you're looking," Sullivan says. Ask your girl friends (or even your sister if she's fairly close in age) to play matchmaker. See if they can think of single women who would be a good fit for you or one of your friends and have her bring them along on a group date. Ask friends who are comfortable meeting new women but aren't going to suck all the oxygen out of the room and make the experience all about them. When you have a group of people who are kind of familiar with each other, or maybe haven't met but know a friend of a friend, you have a far better chance of making a connection. If all of this sounds overly complicated, you can also try a dating service like Grouper  to streamline the process.

How to crank out more pullups

Performing several different variations or modifications of the pullup with the TRX "changes the angle of your pullup," says Duffy. These slight changes in the movement pattern will develop different areas of the muscles in your back, forearms, and biceps to build up more muscular strength and endurance. Work with the TRX on modified pullups once per week for a total of 3-5 sets to muscular failure.

Having more sex makes you more attractive

Couples who have the most sex aren't necessarily happier in their relationships. Nonetheless, having more sex in the beginning of a new relationship could supercharge chemistry and attraction between you and your lady, so have at it.

How to lose your gut in 10 days

If your goal is to burn fat, intervals better be part of your program. Besides being a quick method to getting in a great workout, intervals are extremely effective for transforming your physique. By incorporating intense periods of work with short recovery segments, intervals allow you to keep the workout intensity high while still maintaining form. The magic of high-intensity interval training lies in its ability to keep you burning fat even after you leave the gym. In short, your body isn’t able to bring in enough oxygen during periods of hard work. Therefore, you accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result: Your metabolism is revved for hours after you leave the gym. Trainers refer to this phenomena as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption.

The Mechanics of Shoulder Training

Raises, or "laterals",” are isolation exercises, as they involve only the shoulder joint and no other muscles than the deltoids. Laterals are excellent for working and shaping the individual heads of the deltoids and can be done (more or less) to the front, side and rear to stress specific areas of the shoulder muscles. The following are some examples of the different kinds of shoulder exercises, and suggestions as to how to do them most effectively. There are additional alternatives but these descriptions cover the basics. Just remember, no matter the particular movement, try to be conscious of what the shoulder joint is doing, concentrate on feeling the rotation involved and keep the exercises mechanically correct to avoid limiting the effectiveness of your shoulder training. It takes a certain amount of skill to isolate the deltoids as a group and even more technique to target individual deltoid heads.

My Quest for a 315 Bench Press

  Rather, my focus has been on being healthy, not having a stroke, and letting all of the injuries I have accrued heal up. I also had a goal of being able to do things with my son. That was more important to me than anything else. For a while, I could do almost nothing with him. No tossing a ball around, no playing outside, only sitting around the house with ice all over me.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, June 1, 2017

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - You appear as if you're emotionally reserved today, but you're actually calculating your chances for success. Your mind is focused on one particular person and you quickly brush everyone else off. You can't wait to reveal your heart because you think there is a special connection between the two of you. But deepening an involvement is a tricky process. Sprinting for the finish line prematurely signals your intentions and could even scare the other person away. Swami Vivekananda said, "Nothing else is necessary but these: love, sincerity and patience."

Superfood - Super Blend of 18 Berries, Fruits, and Vegetables* - Biotest

Biotest Superfood contains 18 incredibly potent, freeze-dried super extracts of WHOLE fruits and vegetables. You'd have to eat several pounds of expensive berries, fruits, and veggies per day to match one small serving of Superfood. And no amount of multivitamin tablets can beat Superfood's nutritional profile.*

Wide Chest Workout

The chest, known technically as the pectoralis major, or pecs for short, makes up the major mass on the front of your upper body. As a large muscle group, it has a lot of areas to focus on: upper, lower, inner and outer. Developing the outer pecs is important for developing wide, impressive pecs . . . think Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the day. To really build the outer pecs, you need to perform weighted exercises that place a lot of stretch on the pecs. One of the best exercises for placing stretch on the pecs is dumbbell flyes. Be sure to perform these with just a slight bend in your elbows so that your arms are almost straight during the movement. Also, go as low as possible in the bottom position . . . again, think Arnold. This works to target the outer-pec muscle fibers, which will build up to add more width to your chest.

How much should I work out?

Whether you want to put on size, cut down and get lean, add strength, or just maintain, the amount of times per week that you train can be a direct correlate to your results. As a general baseline, if you’re looking for any sort of results, I’d strongly recommend that you don’t spend any less than three days per week in the weight room. You won’t be accomplishing anything by training less than this, and your weekly training volume will simply be too low, which won’t have lasting effects on strength, muscle volume, or caloric burn. But let’s get more specific.

Training with Tendonitis

Use perfect form and a slow tempo on every rep. After the workout is complete, the injured area should be iced for 20 minutes every hour or so till bedtime. In addition, NSAIDs can be utilized to reduce inflammation as well, but not for more than a few days since these medications can interfere with the anabolic process.

Your Complete Guide To Optimal Iron Levels

Iron is an essential mineral, meaning that your body can't produce the amount it needs to perform crucial functions. Iron is a chief component of hemoglobin, which is a protein in red blood cells responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood. Iron is also necessary for optimal growth and development of the muscular and skeletal systems, and to maintain normal cellular functioning, immune function, and synthesis of hormones and connective tissue.[1] If some of that sounds a little vague, that's just because iron does so much, in so many parts of your body, that it's hard to get across without a textbook.

Why Are You Competing? | T Nation

More and more people are competing in physique contests. A few years back you had contests with ten competitors. And if you were competing you were an oddball in the gym. But today it seems like everybody is preparing for a contest. It's now "in" to prepare for a show, and they all want to do it after only a few weeks in the gym.
