This is by far the best pre workout that I have ever used. It actually kept me more focused on my workout instead of kinda relaxing and taking my time for the next set. I never got the jittery feeling or itchy feeling. I haven’t tried more than the one scoop recommended but maybe it’s time to see how it would be. But I have tried most of the flavors and I like them all so far. The pink lemonade is by far my favorite! I got tired of the cherry limeade after 4 months straight use while deployed but then I got the grape and other flavors as they were available. I use a lot of the other products and they all pair well together. I have had multiple friends want to try and love this product as well so it must be one of the best. Highly recommend!

Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, May 25, 2018

Friday, May 25, 2018 - You are an equitable judge of everyone’s behavior, and your coworkers seek out your wisdom before initiating action today. You are experienced enough to allow your higher self see the positive potential, even in those actions you might not wholeheartedly support. Your current power of vision is a gift that can guide others. But it can also be used to successfully navigate around the obstacles you encounter. Gloria Steinem wrote, “Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”

Tip: Explode, Then Squat | T Nation

8 Rapid weight loss: 4 ways to accelerate your fat-loss

Tip: Strong Legs, No Knee Pain | T Nation

This is a great sequence to work around knee issues, and it's quite effective for building muscle. What makes this such a great pairing is that it doesn't require much technical prowess, making it suitable for both beginners and advanced lifters. Of course, it won't replace the tried and true basics. But, before you scoff at it, give it a try.


Just because it’s  chest day  doesn’t mean you’re relegated to park your backside on a bench for your session. While the bench is a valuable tool for overall  chest strength , it can place excess stress on the delts, which can be tough for those with injured shoulders. For pure pec muscle growth, there are several exercises that will get you off the bench and on your way to chest growth in PECtacular fashion.

Tip: Bad Ankles, Bad Squat? | T Nation

A lot of coaches try to get people's hips or knees to do this or that, all the while ignoring that if the ankles aren't moving properly, the knees and hips can't move properly for efficient load distribution. For the hips to open up, you have to have adequate hip abduction. The knees should move out to the side when that happens very naturally. However, if the ankles are pronating and not supinating, then none of that will ever happen.

13 Set-Rep Schemes for Brand New Growth | T Nation

I typically do multiple sets working my way up in weight. In the video, I'm using both bands and chains to deload weight at the bottom of the movement, but that's not necessary. The key is to work up to a tough working weight whereby you'd do 4 sets of 6-8 reps. However, rather than doing all 4 working sets, only do 3. The first two are standard 6-8 rep sets, but the third is a challenge set where you'd do as many reps as possible.

Tip: Solid Walk-Out, Solid Squat | T Nation

First, unracking the bar without being tight will make the bar feel a heckuva lot heavier, which can psych you out, and walking backward with that suboptimal tension is dangerous. Plus it's harder to assume a strong setup right before squatting if you didn't start that way. So before you take the bar out of the rack make sure that:

Tip: How To Do a Bar Muscle-Up | T Nation

This version creates greater momentum from the hips. The thought here is to bring your hips to the bar, though you may notice that my hips don't go all the way to the bar here. This is because there's another bar below the top bar where I'm doing the muscle-up. Let's try not to ram our bodies into bars.

Tip: Try This For Bigger Traps | T Nation

Let's cut the bullshit and get to the brass tacks. For decades, men built slabs of muscle with simple, three day-per-week training programs.

8 Lessons From Glute Girls | T Nation

Bros will often say they want to bring up a muscle group, then do a few extra sets for said muscle group once a week, and believe it's enough. Or maybe they have one day dedicated to working that muscle and believe that "volume trumps all." Glute girls would laugh at you for this. Your efforts would be the butt of their jokes. If you really want to bring up a lagging muscle group, give it a reason to grow, and give it that reason often.

5 rules of fast fat loss

Of all the foods you eat, the high-protein ones are the most important for losing fat. First, they keep you feeling full, which prevents overeating and needless snacking. Second, they boost your calorie burn throughout the day because protein takes more energy to digest than carbs or fat. Third, when accompanied with weight training, a high-protein diet prevents muscle loss that might otherwise happen when you suddenly cut calories.

Tip: Eat All You Want and Still Lose Fat | T Nation

After the year of dieting was up, the members of the low-carb group, on average, lost a bit over 13 pounds, while those on the low-fat group lost about 11.7 pounds.
