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:

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.

Classic Physique Bodybuilding Greats

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER Yes, "The Oak" displayed a huge amount of muscle mass, yet still with all that size, the 6'2 Austrian was able to pull off the coveted, classic physique that earned him a stunning 7 Mr. Olympia titles. Considered among the most important figures in the history of bodybuilding, Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to be passionate about the sport and the direction it's headed.When recently sharing his opinion on the appearance of today's Mr. Olympia participants, 'The Oak' said, "We need to stop just rewarding guys with the biggest muscles who don’t look as pleasing. Look at the old days when Steve Reeves won. You saw him on the beach [in photos], you said, ‘I would love to have this man’s body. Look at how beautiful this man looks.’ But that’s not what you say about the guys today who win the competitions. You have to look at everything, like, for instance, so many of those guys [today] have their stomachs sticking out...It used to be that you should have a V-shaped body."

The 15-minute full-body dumbbell workout

Hold the dumbbells in front of your thighs with your feet hip-width apart. Push your hips back and bend forward until you feel you can’t keep the arch in your lower back (it’s ok to let your knees bend a little). extend your hips to come back up. Perform 12–15 reps.

The Best Full-Body Summer Workout Plan

You will keep the weight on the lighter side, and execute more reps so that you do not over-train or fatigue your body to where you can't finish each set. You should incorporate a variety of techniques into your workout routine and superset smaller exercises that can be done with the H.I.T. principles but you don't train the WHOLE body in one workout setting for this routine. You will stick to 1 or 2 muscle groups and train them in accordance with a planned resistance training schedule as follows.

7 Reasons Your Pecs are Flat

Almost as bad as bouncing the bar off the chest is the inane practice of performing half-reps on the bench press. You want massive pecs to be proud of? Then lower the bar to full stretch (which for most people will mean lightly touching the bar to the chest or to a point just slightly above) to excite every fiber, and then press the bar straight up to lockout, while consciously squeezing the pecs into a tight contraction.

10 exercises to develop the best pecs in the gym

"If you currently work out 3 days a week, you can hit your chest every workout," Perry says. "The goal," he adds, "is to hit your pecs just enough so you can recover in time for your next workout." The sweet spot is a total of 5 sets with a compound movement. (You can also consider adding a finisher after each workout such as a few sets of cable crossovers, pec deck, pushups, wide-grip dips, or racked kettlebell carries to failure—more on those in the slides that follow.) Perry suggests aiming for 5x12 reps of a compound chest move—like a bench press variation—first when you're adding them to a full-body routine (you may only get to five reps on the last set which is fine); if you're trying to build a bigger chest, you want to hit these muscles when you're fresh to see the fastest results and biggest impact.

Carbon by Layne Norton Prep at Bodybuilding.com - 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*.

Cinnamon Apple Yogurt Parfait with Protein Granola

Assemble the parfait. For presentation purposes only, a glass cup, martini glass or clear coffee glass mug would work well. Layer 1 tbsp. of granola, then a small scoop of yogurt then the apples and more granola. There’s no exact science to this step, just continue layering, and have fun with it. Use the remaining ½ ingredients for the second glass.

Straight Up Triceps: The Tried-and-True Arm Workout

So what we’ve done here is take that at-home routine to the gym to spruce it up with some barbell and cable work for added triceps isolation. This workout is bookended with the aforementioned DIY moves (replacing the granite countertop with actual dip bars), sandwiching lying EZ-bar extensions and cable overhead extensions in between. What you’re left with is a nice blend of bodyweight and machine training, multi-joint mass builders, and single-joint detailers. Know what else you’re left with? A beefier pair of tri’s you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else you care to flex.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, June 2, 2017

Friday, June 2, 2017 - You know something big is coming up over the horizon and you can feel the excitement in your bones. But you don't want to be distracted from achieving your long-term goals while ambitious Saturn is still visiting your sign. Nevertheless, you're eager to break the bonds of responsibility that prevent you from making your move. It's a dance between impulsive and compulsive behavior now, with you vacillating between these two modalities. Forget about making a final decision today. Simply play the waiting game and keep in rhythm until the music stops.

The 6 Most Hated Personal Trainers | T Nation

But there are those that not only cross the line, they splatter the line with kerosene and light a match to it. Case in point, a month ago I fired a trainer on the spot for walking past a changing stall and snapping a picture with his phone over the top of the door because his victim was trying on a sports bra. Yes, creeps like that really exist. News of this leaking out doesn't bode well for not only the gym, but trainers in general.

Tip: Master the Dorian Deadlift | T Nation

The conventional deadlift done in a full range of motion is actually two movements: a push off the floor, then a pull over the knees. The push off the floor is initiated by leg drive. Then as the bar gets to around knee height and the hamstrings have completed their part of the job, the rhomboids, lats, and traps work isometrically to hold position as the lockout is completed. The conventional deadlift has a couple of shortcomings when it comes to back building:

7 squat variations to build muscular legs

Ready to really challenge your overall core strength? Instead of putting that barbell on your back, try holding it in the crooks of your elbows, a move called the Zercher squat. By positioning the load lower and in front of your body, the Zercher squat challenges your back and shoulders to support the weight without stooping over, all while your hips and legs have to do the work of, y'know, squatting. But take it easy at first—this position is far more demanding than the usual squat, so make sure you start light and work your way to a comfortable weight. Here's a primer on how to do it . Muscles worked: glutes, hamstrings, quads, lower back, and core.

Tip: Drink This Kind of Cow's Milk | T Nation

While the milk haters might be laying the blame in the wrong places, it looks like they might be at least partly right about milk. It turns out there's a type of beta casein in the majority of milk products that makes milk a horrible choice for a significant group of people.

Tip: Rope Crunches: You're Doing Them Wrong | T Nation

To involve your abs, you have to do the exact opposite – lock your hips and bend your back. The start position for a rope crunch is with the spine arched as far back as possible (full extension). It's performed correctly by pulling the elbows toward the knees, with the spine going from full extension to full flexion, while the waist (hips) stay totally locked and stationary. This focuses all the work on the abs.

Tip: 4 Extended Set Techniques for Size Gains | T Nation

Stopping a set short leaves potential growth on the table. You may have nothing left to give at that weight or with that exercise, but that doesn't mean your set has to be over. That's where extended sets come in. Just don't overdo it with these techniques. Using them on the last set of an exercise is enough.

Train Like The Rock: Dwayne Johnson's Shoulder Routine

Johnson hits the gym six days per week, usually focusing on one body part per day. At 45, he's a seasoned, instinctive trainer. "I go by feel," he says, and notes that when he's in the gym it's all business. "I have my headphones on. I'm listening to my music. I'm 100% focused. There's no wasted time and no wasted effort when it comes to me and the weights." And The Rock's favorite body part? Legs, which is why he leaves them for Saturday when he has extra time to train them.

Tip: The Seated Box Jump | T Nation

Taking out the swing of the arms will force you to focus on developing power from the ground up. To take this movement to the next level, hug a weight to your chest. Now you have a loaded plyometric movement that doesn't trash your joints. Not too shabby.

The 10 Most Common Sex Mistakes

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.

The best post-workout foods

“It all comes down to the carbohydrates and protein,” says Manuel Villacorta, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “They’re the two key things your body needs—and right after you work out is when your blood circulates best.” If your main goal is to build muscle, try to eat at least 30 grams of protein and 30 to 35 grams of carbs within about 15 minutes of your workout. If you’re just trying to stay in shape or shed a few pounds, you can take your time and eat within 45 minutes or an hour after your workout.

20 Foods That Keep You Young

Exercise is key to staying young, and this super food will power you through your gym sessions. In a study published in the journal Metabolism, test subjects who consumed rolled oats 45 minutes before exercising had a significant performance advantage over subjects who had puffed rice or water. (We digest these carbs slowly, which means that our energy stays high long after we eat them. Cool!) So grab a spoon and get ready to be propelled through your workout like a teen who just drank Red Bull.

6 Ways to Target Your Upper Pecs and Build a Bigger Chest

"If your upper pecs are really lagging, the best way to bring them out is to always start with incline moves," Schlierkamp says. You can do this with a barbell, dumbbells or a Smith machine. Starting with incline moves will ensure that these underused fibers are fresh at the start of your workout, allowing you move the most weight possible to trigger growth. From there you can move on to flat and decline moves, where you're likely naturally stronger.
