3 Important Life-Lessons From My First 14er
The reality is I am not the only person with this deformity to have climbed a fourteener. There are certainly others with an identical or similar condition who have also overcome adversity to succeed at their goals. And for those who have not, I hope to inspire you to one day triumph no matter what the circumstance. When I felt overwhelmed on my climb I sought out this inspiration to help me fight on.
Steve's Log- Wednesday July 23rd, 2014
As a would be training/strength coach I get frustrated VERY easily. I joke around on social media a lot and use the hashtag #thinklikemedammit every time I register my online disgust over something I can’t believe I’m actually seeing. But all that online rage stems from stuff I actually do see and experience in my daily life. Call me old, call me crotchety or whatever but when I’m right, I’m right dammit. Even some of the clients that I train here at my gym and online piss me off sometimes. I try not to be so much of a hardass with them, I am not that CT Fletcher type of guy, if I TELL you something I just expect you to be able to do it. I shouldn’t have to yell at you like you are a child. And do you know why? Because I can fucking do it! That’s right, I would never ask a lifter to do anything that I haven’t done myself. Even as a broken down old lifter I can bury most of these young athletes on an EASY DAY! And that’s really sad . . . for them.
Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - Perhaps you're busy dreaming about unrealistic scenarios to avoid dealing with the promises you already made. Your intentions may have been sincere in the moment, but your time is running short and you don't know how you're going to fulfill all of your obligations now. Keep in mind that even a minor task could grow into a major one today. Don't make any sudden changes to your overall strategy yet; wait a few days to see how the new landscape takes shape and then re-establish a fresh set of priorities. Your future is bright as long as your energy isn't spread too thin.

25 Ways to Get Stronger Now
If you can't lock out your elbows on the bench press, try setting the safety rails in a power rack at about your sticking point on the lift. Put roughly 100 pounds more than your one-rep maximum weight on the bar and then try to press it — naturally, you won't be able to move the bar but try hard anyway for six to 10 seconds. Do four to six reps, resting a few seconds in between, and then lighten the load to the weight you usually have trouble locking out. Your central nervous system should now be sufficiently fired up for you to lift it.
Get Crushed: Never Ending Squats
Two reps of the barbell back squat. That doesn’t sound so hard. Well, hold your horses, Tonto, because this progression is absolutely brutal. Start with 50% of your 1RM on the bar. At the top of the minute, perform two reps of the back squat. Rest the remainder of the minute (NOT 60 seconds, but whatever time is left after you performed the squat). Add 10 pounds to the bar and repeat. Keep adding 10 pounds and performing 2 reps every minute until you can no longer get the two reps. Obviously, this will crush your quads, glutes, core and the will to live. Don’t have a spotter? You can do the same workout with a deadlift, weighted chin ups or overhead press.

6 Ways to Feel Full Without Eating More
It’s time for your beach body to make its summer debut. That means if you’re still working off some residual chubbiness, now’s the time to up your intensity in the gym and tighten the screws on your diet. The trouble is, hunger cravings can often be convincing enough to get you to cave, and that one sugary or fatty slip up can lead to a devastating domino effect. A solution would be to feel full without eating more. For tweaks you can make to help do that, we asked Dr. Jonny “The Rogue Nutritionist” Bowden, PhD, CNS, author of The Great Cholesterol Myth , and an expert on weight loss and nutrition to pitch in with a few tips.
Fine-Tune Your Chest in Four Weeks
Rather than change instruments or reread the Orchestra for Dummies manual, they did what many of us need to do in our own workouts. They took what was familiar and made subtle yet crucial adjustments to produce the expected and desired result. Think about your training: When was the last time you listened to your body and fine-tuned your form? Been a while? Then take your seat—the curtain is about to go up on chest training.
The Paleo problem: Examining the pros and cons of the Paleo Diet.
Unless you’ve been living in an actual cave, you’ve probably heard all about the Paleo – or “caveman” – diet. Maybe you’ve even tried it. A little meat here, some fresh veggies there. Perhaps going grain- or processed-food-free. It’s a cool idea that captures the imagination. But is it healthy? And does it work? That’s what we’ll explore in this article.
4 Rules for Making a Muscle Building Shake
Using the whole fruit is a much better option that using fruit juice. When you use just the juice you miss out on all of the phytochemicals and fiber that the flesh and skin of fruits have in them. Using just the fruit juice also can add up to a lot of calories fast, with almost all of the calories coming in the form of sugar. The only way you should use any fruit juice is to mask the greens food flavor, if necessary, or to add a big burst of nutrients. Good “juice-only” tactics would be to add an ounce of tart cherry juice concentrate or pomegranate juice. These two juices provide a ton of antioxidants with fewer calories, so they do make the grade.
Calf Training: Build Bigger Lower Legs
Try going through a full calf-training session and then some heavy leg curls (toes pointed up). You'll notice the leg curls will be much more difficult if you pre-exhaust your calves. To mix it up, do the initial sets with a short range of motion at the peak-contracted phase, followed by partial sets using full range of motion.
Build the Perfect Salad
Done right, a salad can supply fiber, protein, and potent disease-fighting phytonutrients. Done wrong, it's no better than fast food. Turn over a new leaf with these easy suggestions.

Arnold hit every body part, not just chest, with high volume and frequency. His offseason routine consisted of up to 26 working sets on a high-volume day, and he trained his pecs three days per week, taking at least 48 hours off between workouts for recovery. That kind of volume and frequency suited The Oak during his competitive years, but for anyone with a full-time job, it's likely to induce significant jumps in cortisol levels and fatigue. Cycle short periods of high volume or high frequency training into your workout on occasion, but listen to your body for signs of overtraining. Arnold also cycled heavy and light days to both work the muscles with different relative intensities and ensure he wasn't overtraining his pecs.
Fighter Diet News
Fighter Diet News, by Pauline Nordin: Get Buff, Get Lean
A number of bodybuilders have e-mailed me requesting the same thing: “Can you check out my precontest diet?” Time and again, their approach to dieting is the same: no carbs. A no-carb or very-low-carb plan can be effective — it almost always means fewer calories, so that’s a plus. It also means insulin, a potentially fat-storing hormone, is controlled. But it doesn’t guarantee a ripped fat-free physique. Getting ripped is about controlling calories while simultaneously keeping hormones in balance. That’s what this article is about — providing the guidelines for a hormonal profile that will keep your metabolic rate humming to burn bodyfat. Here’s the data on six main hormones you need to know about.
Hey, Dirtbags: Five Body Washes That Work Better Than Bar Soap
Bar soap isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Believe it or not, your standard block of Irish Spring or Zest can wreak havoc on your skin, stripping your dermis of the moisture it needs to remain smooth and healthy. But the latest body washes (or “shower gels”) to hit the shelves of your local pharmacy are different: They not only keep your skin hydrated, they also come loaded with extra benefits, including blends of calming natural ingredients, subtle scents, and triple-duty formulations for seamless washing, shampooing, and shaving. 10 Grooming Products Guys Steal from Their Girlfriends>>>
Build The Ultimate Spicy Burger
Bad spicy grabs each of your taste buds and issues the pain of an especially wrenching purple nurple. Bad spicy wallops any ingredient that suffers beneath its smothering effect. Bad spicy makes burgers angry. It’s not that a spicy burger is a bad thing to begin with. In fact, when done well, a spicy burger is the best example of good spicy. The heat brings out the bold taste of the beef, the creaminess of the cheese, and the refreshing properties of lettuce and tomato. It’ll have you reaching for burger’s greatest love—beer—instead of for a fire extinguisher. In this Age of Spicy, remind yourself of why we arrived here in the first place. Make this recipe, which tempers the burn of spicy peppers with smokiness, resulting in a burger that’ll leave you happy, not angry. Apache Sweat Lodge Burger Recipe by Jeff Tunks, executive chef of Burger, Tap & Shake in Washington, D.C. What you’ll need: ¼ large yellow onion, chopped 2 dried chile de arbol peppers, seeded 2 Roma tomatoes, stems removed 2 garlic cloves 1 Anaheim pepper 1 Poblano pepper 1 ½ lb 80/20 ground beef Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Canola oil 2 Tbsp unsalted butter 4 Brioche or Kaiser buns 8 leaves green leaf or Romaine lettuce 4 tomato slices, cut about ¼-inch thick 4 thin slices of red onion Pickled jalapeno pepper slices 4 slices pepper jack cheese How to make it: 1.
Hunger Games | MuscleMag
Whatever nutritional plan you decide to follow, you’ll have to lower your caloric intake at certain points if you want to reduce body fat. This creates what’s known as a caloric energy deficit. When you go this route, however, your body recognizes this decrease in energy, and it’ll respond by fighting you every step of the way. The best defense for this — and the best way to ensure lasting dietary success — is to develop a better understanding of why hunger occurs in the first place.
The MuscleTech Clear Results Challenge
In just three months, the synergy between the training, food and MuscleTech products is sure to produce the namesake of this program: Clear Results. Results you’ll see in the mirror with increased muscle mass, and results you’ll feel in the gym when heavy sets of squats, bench, and all other exercises feel considerably lighter than they used to.
Tim Tebow Plays Volleyball with a Medicine Ball
The former NFL quarterback, two years removed from the league, still wants a shot at returning. To keep in shape, he’s turned to fitness trainer Ian Danney, inventor of the part grueling, part life-threatening game “Danney-Ball.” Competitors toss a padded 10-pound medicine ball over a volleyball net back and forth, attempting to control their heaves inside a standard beach volleyball court.
The Beach-Body Shoulder Workout
4B. Dumbbell Lateral Raise Sets: 4 Reps: 12 Rest: 90 sec. While standing with proper posture and dumbbells in each hand. Lift the dumbbells out to your side with a slight bend in your elbows and your hands tilted like you were pouring a jug of water. Raise your hands until parallel with the shoulders, then lower the dumbbells to the starting position.

The M&F His & Hers Workout
By training together, which is not always common, couples get to spend a little extra time together. Since one person is usually more into working out than the other, this also allows the less enthusiastic person to share in something that’s very important to the other. Worst-case scenario is that both parties end up getting fitter and leaner. Best case is that they become permanent workout partners.

Size Secret #2: Super Slow Reps
DENNIS JAMES: “When something doesn’t work or I hit a plateau in my training, I always implement very, very slow reps. I’m talking super slow, as in 5–10 seconds up and 5–10 seconds down on every rep using 30%–50% of the weight you’d normally use. And you don’t have to limit this to just one exercise in your workout; you can do it for every exercise. It takes you much longer to get through the set, but I guarantee one set will make up for 5–6 regular sets.
The Big Arms Solution
It may seem obvious now that we’re having the conversation but your best bet is to use heavy weight and low reps and perform compound movements that require the arms (triceps and biceps) to take up a lot of the work with the help of some larger muscles. By infusing some calculated bouts of heavy work into your arm training, you will build greater strength, which allows you to use more weight on your higher-rep “pump” work days. If you want your arms to be huge like a strongman and ripped like a gymnast, follow this workout program 2-3 days a week until you curse the tightness of your sleeves.
Eccentric Pause for Expanded Muscle
When we pause the bar and no movement whatsoever is established, yet the muscle is still under tension, we allow for the optimal amount of cross bridges to be engaged. It’s important to understand that eccentric-pause exercises have a significant function in overall force production. Any exercise that you conduct in a standard weight lifting fashion on its second day can be applied in an eccentric-pause methodology. The eccentric count should occur slowly and the pause should come between the transition of the eccentric and concentric phases.
10 Essentials for Every Great Workout Routine
Is your training program missing one of these important elements? Make sure you're getting a well-rounded routine.
Rich Froning Signs Long-Term Deal with Reebok
“There is no doubt that Rich is the world’s premier CrossFit athlete. His track record speaks for itself,” said Chris Froio, vice president of fitness and training at Reebok. “With our long term commitment to CrossFit, it was important that Rich be a part of helping us continue to innovate and push the sport forward. Over the past few years, he has been instrumental in helping us develop products such as our Nano series and our CrossFit board short, and he will continue to play a huge role in the future.”
The Long Road to a 900-Pound Bench
As I sat down on the end of the bench, I looked up to the rafters. I always look up before a big lift. I look up in hopes of my brother looking down on me while I lift. Since his passing, he has inspired a lot of my big lifts. This was going to be no different. I lied down on the bench, forced myself into position, and started counting breaths. I counted “one, two” and then Karsten lifted the bar off as I inhaled for the third. What a BOSS Karsten is to lift off 900 pounds by himself. He set the bar perfectly in my hands and I waited for the start command. My spotters and I handled the bench at the meet the same way we do in the gym: As soon as the bar starts its descent, I hear Brian spotting on my left, cueing “squeeze” which makes me grip down even harder on the bar and engage my back. Then I hear “toes.” This means to keep my toes up in my shoes forcing me to dig my heels into the ground. This is usually Drew’s job, by the way. Then there’s “two, one” which means the weight is that close, in inches.
Weider Principle #22: Partial Reps
There is no Weider Full Range of Motion Principle. I just made it up. Perhaps the fact that you should strive for complete reps that go from an all-out stretch to a thorough contraction was simply too obvious for Joe Weider to codify in a tenet. It has long been an exercise fundamental— and we’re about to break it. You don’t have to go all the way. Sometimes an exercise is made more effective by using only part of its range of motion. The Weider Partial Reps Principle increases tension by decreasing movement.
Burn Baby Burn
Researchers took trained men and had them perform a traditional workout doing four sets of eight diferent exercises (bench press, leg press, leg curl, seated row, military press, biceps curl, triceps extension, and situp). A second group performed high-intensity training, using heavier weights and lower reps. The high-intensity workout was much shorter. The traditional workout took 52 minutes to complete, whereas the high-intensity workout took 22 minutes. They measured the men’s metabolic rate on two separate occasions, once before the workout and then again 22 hours after it was finished. At the end of the study, training volume was much higher for the traditional resistance-training group (17,273 pounds vs. 8,536 pounds).

The Science of Compliance - Juggernaut Training Systems
Of late I have noticed an increased concentration on nutrition in the strength sports community. A lot of guys aren’t buying into the “mass moves mass” ideology anymore, and we’re seeing some real freaks in the lighter classes. Guys are moving some serious weights only to stand at the top of the podium with a set of abs, and I think it’s a phenomenal trend. Along with the interest in the market, of course, there comes interest from the other end: the sellers of the product. So there has also been a huge increase in nutrition coaches looking to provide a product to these athletes. And I must say there are a ton of top notch scientists coming out and providing some really great information from their own studies and also interpreting this information for the general public. I am seeing a Dispelling the Myths of Nutrition article put out at least once a week and it’s knocking down the latest fad diet and non-science based trend. All of these things are great!

Flex Lewis Back Attack
Lewis does sets of rack deadlifts with 315 and 405, and a set with 495. The bar begins each rep from power-rack supports set just above his knees. He uses straps, chalk, a belt with FLEX LEWIS on the back and his iPod. “Deads off the floor is a different exercise, and it works glutes and hams, too. Deads off a rack works lower back. I’ve always done them explosive. I psych myself up so much that I go completely blank. I don’t know what I do with reps. I have my training partners tell me.” I count for him. He knocks out 11, plates clattering, banging each rep off the supports.
