Transformation of the Month: Achieving Greatness

I presently weigh 182 pounds and I am training to compete. I try to absorb everyone’s knowledge about fitness; it’s such a unique world that I feel everyone should be a part of. Every single time I’m in need of some new motivation, I can simply go online and see all these people with a changed life. Now my biggest supporters are my followers. The fact that my story can have an impact on so many people amazes me, but it also shows that we all have the same goals in life. We want to feel healthy, we want to look healthy, and we want to be the best possible selves we can be. When people ask me how to start, I always respond “believe in yourself,” because that’s who gets you through it all. I know now that one day I will be a great competitor. I’ve come so far already there’s no turning back.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, July 16, 2015

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - Placing your dreams of adventure temporarily on hold may be necessary today because there are the needs of others to take in consideration, too. Unfortunately, another person's dependence on you is in direct conflict with your current yearning for freedom. You don't like the fact that you can't just run off and follow your bliss. Although you value your independence, you're willing to accept your current position of accountability to maintain healthy relationships. Try an empathetic approach by putting yourself in someone else's shoes before taking a hike in your own.

10 Underrated Protein Sources

Consuming enough protein is not only critical for building and maintaining muscle—it also happens to be important for maintaining a healthy nutritional profile. But that same old chicken breast can get pretty boring, whey powder only comes in so many flavors and there are only so many eggs you can eat before you start to sprout feathers—particularly if you are trying to adhere to the M&F-approved 1 gram per pound of bodyweight per day benchmark. So the next time you’re in a protein rut, consider one of nature’s alternative protein sources . Or, just consider tossing some new protein sources into your diet for some variety.

15 Best Bodyweight Exercises for Men

When you walk into the gym and every single bench and squat rack is taken by a bigger, stronger guy or by that “bro” doing curls in the squat rack, you could just turn around and walk out and say you’ll come back later. However, that isn’t an option when you’re trying to be your best you, because you know consistency is key. That one day off can lead to a week, which can lead to a month, and so on. Add these moves to your arsenal and watch the fat melt off your midsection all while building muscle, without skipping a day.

Four-Week Program for a Shredded Summer Body

In the other sessions, there are elements of traditional bodybuilding and CrossFit intermingled. A lot of guys who have been following a traditional body-part split might balk at these CrossFit elements. They’ll say they don’t want to do exercises like toes-to-bar and kipping pullups. “Can I swap it out for something else?” they’ll ask. Yes—if you honestly can’t do the moves listed. But you need to at least try everything listed. If you can’t do it, then scale it back a little, either by lightening the load or cutting back a few reps. But don’t look for an out with every move that makes you uncomfortable. If you start swapping out everything, you might as well just ride a bike every day. You could, in theory, burn the same number of calories that way— you’d lose muscle, lose strength, and essentially become a lesser version of yourself. So don’t start down that path. If you knew a better way to get ripped, then you probably wouldn’t be reading this. Just know that Brad Pitt, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt all did a version of the program you now hold in your hands. You can do what they did if you attack this thing with purpose.

9 Ways to Cut Water Weight and Reveal Your Abs

There is good news though, you can naturally help your body get rid of that extra water so that you can reveal those hard-earned abs.

If you don't fall into that category just yet, work on getting there before you blame water weight for hindering your reveal. Check out these tips to help you showcase that six-pack.

28 Days to Lean Meal Plan

You'’re training hard every day with your program, going heavy on the weights and sweating up a storm with cardio. Newsflash: While that'’s critical to your ultimate success, that'’s just not enough for you to lose the fat you want to.To reach your get-lean goal, you must also follow a get-lean diet. Why? Even if you work out hard for an hour every day, that still leaves 23 more hours for you to wreck all your hard work in the gym with just one slip-up: a measly handful of chips, a beer with the guys or a burger at lunch. Diet is a huge, so to speak, part of the fat-loss equation. It's the backbone of your entire plan, the foundation of a hard body.Bodybuilding nutrition consultant Jim Juge says nutrition determines your success or failure, plain and simple. "The diet is 65% of what you need to get in shape,"” he says. Juge would know, as he'’s helped countless dedicated people reach their goals, from achieving their best body ever to placing first in bodybuilding competitions.You've got 28 days to get to your goal, so we've recruited Juge to help you every step of the way. He'’s adapted a traditional bodybuilding competitor's diet for a non-competitor (that means you!) who wants to look his best, shedding as much fat as possible in a very short time.

7 Presses for Pumped Delts

That’s because maximizing growth on all three delt heads requires some degree of overhead pressing . Overhead presses allow you to overload your delts with heavy weight, which calls more total muscle into play and increases growth hormone release. Each of your shoulder workouts – unless you are limited by injury – should begin with one or two presses. This handy guide lays out some options that you can rotate in to keep things fresh. By swapping out your presses, you can slightly alter the muscular emphasis and keep your delts from getting too comfortable.

Skinny-Guy Rules to Gaining Muscle

2. Clean and Press Set a barbell on the floor, crouch down, and grab it with hands shoulder-width apart. Your lower back should be in its natural arch [1]. Explosively stand up and shrug the bar, coming up onto the balls of your feet. As the bar rises to chest level, flip your wrists over so that your palms face the ceiling and your upper arms are in the bottom position of a shoulder press [2]. From here, press the bar straight overhead [3]. Reverse the motion to return the weight to the floor. That's one rep. If you feel your back is rounding when you pull the weight off the floor, perform the exercise by starting with the bar at just above knee height, and "muscle" the weight up from there.

Ouch: ESPN's Decision To Give Caitlyn Jenner The 'Courage' Award Just Backfired BIG TIME

While we didn’t review all the hundreds of comments on the ESPN webpage regarding the award to Caitlyn Jenner, the above represent a small sampling of the many negative views that seemed to far outweigh the positive response to the 2015 ESPYs. It will be interesting to see if ABC/ESPN scored a ratings victory with its broadcast that — thanks to the hugely controversial honor to Caitlyn Jenner — could very well have generated more pre-show publicity than any such program in the past.

How to Build Muscle When You’re Over 40

Once you hit 40, things don’t tend to work the same way they did when you turned 25—joints are creaky, muscles take longer to recover, and your aerobic conditioning and power starts to decline. But does that mean you should slow down in the gym? Far from it. All you need to do is make a few changes to your exercises and routine.

An AB-solute Must!

Now I’m not about to recommend that you do 500 reps of Roman-chair situps daily, but I will tell you that in order to get a trim, nicely developed abdominal region, you’re going to have to put in some effort. I’m talking about training your abs at least three times per week and aiming for no fewer than 100 reps per workout. It might not seem like much compared to Frank’s grueling routine, but the truth is, it’s still a good workload. If you think of those 100 reps in terms of another bodypart, say chest, that would be like doing 10 sets of 10 reps.

The Sleeveless T-Shirt Workout

We brought you the t-shirt workout to help you carve the perfect torso. Now, we're going one step further by bringing you the sleeveless t-shirt workout. This routine was designed to target the key muscles of your upper body that must look good if you're going to dare go sleeveless: your biceps, delts, shoulders, and upper back. "Inverting the body with the Handstand Pushup, then having the arms go to pre-exhaustion fills the arms with blood, priming them for a great pump with the barbell curls," says Rolando Garcia, E at Equinox Manager who programmed this routine. "Anybody can make a bicep look impressive when they curl their arm, but to have impressive arms even when they are straight by your side means that you have been doing the right, full body exercises," says Garcia who notes that the Barbell Curl is one of the best moves for accomplishing this goal. "Go as heavy as possible on these, but keep very good form," he notes.

DeFranco is the most well rounded coach in the world so I expect lots of great training information for a wide range of athletes and washed up meatheads (Joe's term for former athletes) alike. He also has a knack for making things very simple and practical. Whether you're training for the NFL Combine, looking to improve your running form, or trying to get abs for the summer, this should be your #1 podcast. I could listen to this guy speak all day. Kudos coach D. Jon (DeFranco follower since 2006)

25 Tips for Greatness

9.   Build with basics. Afer his stunning second to Coleman at the 2001 Mr. Olympia, it seemed inevitable Cutler would soon have a Sandow on his mantel. He sat out the 2002 Mr. O when an undersized Coleman looked especially vulnerable. Then came 2003, when a nearly 300-pound Ronnie Coleman shocked the bodybuilding world. Cutler was second again, but the gap between him and first had widened. In the aftermath, Cutler, who had been relying increasingly on machines andcables to refine what he assumed was enough size, went back to the basics. He knew he had to pack on pounds to hang with Ronnie, so he trained Ronnie-style: deadlifts, barbell rows, T-bar rows, barbell bench presses. Free-weight basics formed the core of his routines in 2004 and have remained there ever since.

Building Muscle Density

Okay, because I was anxious to go as high as I could, I didn’t go to failure on my sets leading to the heaviest weight. I started with 75s. Normally I’ll do 20 reps, but I stopped at 10. Then I went up to 100s and did only 8, where I still would have done 
around 20 reps in the 
past. So basically,
 every set was just 
enough to stimulate 
but not annihilate my 
chest. Now normally,
160 pounds would
be the highest I
would go for 8–10
reps, but I blew past
 that because I had a 
lot left in my chest.
 I went to the 180s.
 Let me tell you,
it felt like I was 
holding a mini bus 
in each hand.

6 Unconventional Arm Exercises to Crush Plateaus

If you claim that you lift, you had better look like you do. The size and development of your arms will be the first body part people look at when they evaluate your physique. It's just the way it is. Having a nice set of pipes will remind yourself and others that you have put in some serious gym time. But with that time, your arm training can become stale and mundane, causing strength and muscle growth to come to a halt. At this time, you need to find new ways to challenge your arms strength and get them to grow. The basics biceps and triceps exercises will work but only for so long. Triceps pushdowns, skull crushers, barbell curls and hammer curls need to take a back sea for 6-weeks while you bust through plateaus with this arm workout.

3 Keys to A Bigger Bench Press

Performing heavy negatives once or twice a month does wonders for building strength. Bodybuilders that don't have a "negatives day" in their routine are really missing out on huge gains. As a quick refresher, negatives are reps that concentrate on the eccentric, or lowering phase of an exercise. Our muscles can handle 30-40% more weight on the negative portion of a rep, so taking advantage of that taps into plenty of underexploited fibers in your pecs and trains your body and mind to deal with heavier weight. To perform negatives on the bench, add 30-40% more weight than you'd normally use for 10 reps (after a few warm-up sets, of course). So if you're pressing 250 pounds for 10 reps, add an extra 75 pounds (30%) onto the bar. Unrack the weight and resist the negative all the way down for a full five seconds or more. Once the bar touches your chest, have your training partner help you bring the bar back up to the starting position and repeat this for 3-5 total agonizing reps. Use this method sparingly - 1-3 sets, once or twice per month - to avoid overtraining or injury. Besides, after training like this, you'll likely be too sore to want to do it again soon.

Strength training will aid in developing muscle to prevent sarcopenia, while decreasing cardiovascular disease risk factors such as chronic inflammation and insulin resistance.

There's good news, moderate beer consumption has been linked to decreasing heart disease and lowering the risk for hypertension. Again, the key is moderate consumption -- meaning two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women. For starters, not every beer is made the same way and most contain powerful antioxidants called phenols. Phenols are more commonly found in ales, so your tall boy can pack on the health benefits. That's only with moderate consumption, not chugging down several beers.
