The Trifecta Fix for Low Back Pain
Chronic Low Back Pain is extremely common among patients coming into my clinic. There are multiple reasons as to why someone can exhibit chronic low back.Previous/past injuriesRepetitive poor movementPoor lifting techniqueoveruse of certain muscle groups leading to low back tightensspoor postural position during daily activitiesUnfortunately, most people are unaware that there posture and movement are almost always part of the reason(s) why they’re in pain. It’s not often that there is a serious disk or catastrophic injury that is present. Chronic low back pain is chronic bc the action that’s continues the pain is not stopped. A thougrough assesment can significantly help identify where your pain source is.Once your pain source is identified you can begin to create a plan that can help fix it. Wether that’s modifying your daily activity, limiting certain movements to avoid pain, or using exercis and therapy to decrease pain and correct any structural or tissue imbalances. The three videos below are focused towards fixing the imbalances that are most commonly seen with chronic low back pain.Exercise 1: This first exercise demonstrates a half kneeling quadricpes stretch. Most often the anterior core is shut off and the posterior low back takes over to create tightness and stability. This leaves the quads on the front side which are usually over dominant tugging the opposite direction. This mobilization activates the anterior core and allows the hip flexor and quadriceps to be placed in a better stretch while breathing creates space within the tissues and anterior hip capsule.Exercise 2: Supine Hip Flexor Strengthening. This exercise does a great job at stabilizing the lumbo-pelvic hip complex and activating the hip flexors. The hip flexors are usually weak and under active in comparison to the overactive powerful quadricpes, especially the rec fem. You can perform this exercises staticly or dynamically depending on preference. I recommend starting with the static version and then moving to they dynamic version once you have developed enough strength and control.Exercise 3: Side Lying Glute Med activation: This exercise is needed to activate the glute med which is responsible for a number of reasons. Keeping the pelvic in a good position to create balance within the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex. A strong glute med keeps the femur where its supposed to which allows the surrounding supporting musculature to work.If you are experiencing low back, hip or glute pain, I recommend giving this trifecta a shot before your training, cardio, or even your off days.

How to Get More Out of Your Rowing Workout
When you begin training on a rower , set a time, from 2 to 10 minutes, and use the digital display to see how consistent you are with each pull. Watch the strokes per minute and the pace per 500 meters. If the stroke count goes up but the pace doesn’t, you’re losing power. Once you’ve found your groove, try the quick and gnarly
1-minute test. (“After 40 seconds, you’ll feel like your eyes are about to explode,” Kiosoglous says.)
Now you’re ready to cover some distance. Use the erg’s computer, which is preprogrammed for 500-, 1,000-, and 5,000-meter intervals. You can treat the rower like a treadmill with tempo runs and intervals.
Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, July 3, 2018
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - In order to build, you must start with a rock-solid foundation. Saturn brings external security to the forefront when the Moon illuminates the space of your inner security. Pay attention to domestic concerns today. Being frugal and responsible with your spending will help you to proceed from a reliable base. Jupiter shines a light on any self-destructive habits, but also expands your compassion for self and others. It is humbling and inspiring to know the infinite power of the universe supports your intentions.
Forget T Replacement Therapy? | T Nation
Remember, there are no quick fixes when it comes to optimizing hormones. Testosterone replacement may help you with some of the symptoms of low T, but there's still danger to your overall health from the underlying causes. Whether you choose TRT or not, your primary focus should always be on healing and protecting your body.
you mean you aren't like that dumbass guitarist anthony who thinks that because he has a verified check mark and knows music and uses google that he's more knowledgeable on diet than actual scientists? Wow... imagine being that self aware haha twitter.com/GregoryRussel1…

Natural Gains: The Proven Training Strategies | T Nation
This is a great way to get a good pump and build muscle on the heels of your strength training. In fact, one recent study found that when you perform an exercise to failure with loads of 30% of your 1 rep max (very light, 20+ reps) it's nearly as effective as using loads of 80% of your 1 rep max. So when you train isolated muscle groups, do the exercise until you can't do it any longer. You'll get the pump of your life.
The 7-Day Workout Challenge | T Nation
If you feel like you don't have it in the tank some days, don't push it. If you feel like you've got extra gas in the tank some days, then by all means have a two-hour workout that includes 8 exercises for one muscle group. Choose exercises that work best for you by feeling – not exercises that are laid out for you in your program.
Tip: The Bodyweight Squat Test | T Nation
There are a lot of strength tests out there, many unrealistic. But here's one that you and everyone else should be able to pass.
Reeves Deadlift: The Classic Lift Upgraded | T Nation
Reeves was known for having an incredible V-taper and massive upper back that was so visually stunning that he was cast as Hercules in several films. Although he used many upper back exercises in his workouts, a significant part of his Herculean physique can be attributed to the Reeves deadlift.
Tip: The T-Shirt Bench Press | T Nation
It's not quite a paused bench, but it might be better in terms of developing the bench press because of the control you're forced to apply when lowering it and at the chest. Be as explosive as you can on the concentric or lifting phase of the rep, but within reason.
4 Methods To Boost Testosterone With Food | T Nation
Suggested Intake: If you were to exactly replicate the amounts used in the above study, you'd take 10 mg of magnesium per kg bodyweight, so a 100 kg person (about 220 pounds) would take one gram daily. That's a lot. Better to use more sane doses. The RDA is about 420 mg. a day for an adult male, so to enhance testosterone production, experiment with 750 mg. a day for a few weeks and see how you feel.

The Food That Really Made America Fat | T Nation
We're currently experiencing another long-term boom in corn production and as a result, cheap corn prices. Consider that in 1930, America was producing 1.7 billion bushels a year, but in the year 2016 we produced roughly 15 billion bushels. While most of it's not being distilled as it was back in the 19th century, it is being turned into products that, in the long run, are just as devastating as grain alcohol.
Tip: Mix Things Up with this Deadlift Variation | T Nation
I actually came up with the DSS as a way to help athletes overcome low back pain during the deadlift. The side step with a resistance band activates key stabilizers throughout the trunk, pelvis, and hips that spare the lumbar spine during the deadlift portion of the exercise.

5 Self-Improvement Tips for Lifters | T Nation
I have a new piece of advice for personal trainers working with new clients trying to lose fat: Walk with him or her out to the parking lot and look in the backseat of their car. Nearly universally, the backseat is a mess. Fast food bags, clothes, crap, and God knows what cover most of the seating area. If the backseat is cluttered, the car is cluttered, and this person's life is cluttered. And the car smells of old McDonald's French fries. You know that smell.
Chest, Shoulders & Triceps
*This is going to burn. Basically you are going to do this for 3 rounds, but non-stop. Start with side laterals and go to failure. As a point of reference I got about 21 reps on my first set of laterals and 8 on my last. Drop the dumbbells and grab a barbell as wide as possible with the bar slightly behind your head. Flex your delts and maintain this static hold while your training partner goes to failure on side laterals. Once he drops the dumbbells; switch exercises. Keep going back-and-forth until you’ve done each one 3 times. Fire!

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.
Forget Stretching—Lifting Weights Is More Effective for Increasing Flexibility
Ditch the archaic warm-ups and static stretching sessions in favor of movement-based preparation. Research shows that not only are dynamic warm-ups preferable for performance, the simple act of lifting develops flexibility and builds muscle at the same time.
Tip: The Truth About Cortisol, DHEA, and Test | T Nation
This is where I'm supposed to write something about how our current "high stress" culture is killing you. Let's be real though, times are probably easier now than they've ever been in history. You don't have saber-toothed tigers chasing you, and you're probably not gonna be storming any beaches under machine gun fire in the next few months. Your physiology isn't so fragile that it'll get broken by an overloaded email inbox.

Everyone Should Use Creatine | T Nation
Despite little evidence to support their use, untold millions take multivitamins every day. Contrast that with creatine. Laypeople categorize it as a steroid and something used only by guys who always smell like a gym sock, but there's plenty of evidence that regular people could benefit from it.
Drink This, Not That! | T Nation
As far as bottled water regulation in general, the big problem stems from the fact that while the EPA regulates tap water, the FDA oversees bottled. Further, the FDA oversight doesn't apply to water bottled and sold in the same state, which leaves upwards of 60 to 70% of water totally unregulated.

5 Secrets of Building Muscle | T Nation
For example, I've had a lot of clients fail to gain much leg size from doing back squats. The back squat is a great movement, but it will build the glutes and lower back more than the legs in some people. That's not bad if you're an athlete, but it's not so good if your goal is to build big legs.
The 4 Dumbest Forms of Cardio | T Nation
As a doctor of physical therapy, rehab specialist, and soft tissue therapist, I see what these types of cardio can do to the body. And it's not good. What's more, some of these activities are wastes of time if your goal is to lose fat and keep it off.

The Hangover Workout
As for what to do when you get there, this is no time to go after a personal record or push yourself too hard. “High-intensity exercises can make hangovers feel worse — they can bring on headaches and increase nausea — plus sweating too much can add to the dehydration,” says White. You also shouldn’t try anything that requires too much skill work or balance. “When you drink a lot the night before, you’re a lot less coordinated the next day and might have trouble concentrating,” says Edward Jackowski, PhD, founder of Exude Fitness in New York. “That means you can injure yourself if you aren’t careful.”
