Arnold Schwarzenegger's Highlight Reel

Schwarzenegger poses for a portrait circa 1966 in Austria. The now-legendary bodybuilder has since disclosed that his mother wasn't as enthusiastic about his hobby as he was in the very beginning. "When I first started lifting weights in 1962, my mother cried, saying, 'Where did I go wrong? My boy has pictures of naked, oiled-up men on his wall, and all his friends have pictures of girls in their rooms,'" he said.

Tip: The Best Damn Sleep Tip Ever | T Nation

Your schedule will vary of course, but it all starts with hitting the sack earlier than you do now and allowing the sleep machinery to finish its job. Yes, I know you're busy and yes, I know you can't do this with a newborn in the house. (I also know you watch several hours of TV a night.) But at least try to allow yourself a "window" for your wake time rather than setting an alarm for a designated time.

Tip: Go Deep With Technique | T Nation

Subtle differences in techniques go a lot deeper than most people appreciate. Just because you're "good" at a lift or have impressive numbers, it doesn't mean you have mastered that movement. Check out the three deadlifts below. The loading pattern for each one is completely different... and all are correct.

Re-Kaged by Kaged Muscle at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on Re-Kaged!

The difference lies at the point of consumption. Typical hydrolyzed whey protein is chemically treated during the manufacturing process into small peptides and dried. Re-Kaged’s Whey protein isolate plus Prohydrolase is hydrolyzed the instant it comes in contact with liquid. Thus, kick starting the muscle building and recovery process!*

The best bodyweight exercises for your chest

If you're looking to make your pecs pop, you probably think you need a barbell or, at least, some heavy dumbbells. But that's just not the case. There are plenty of great moves you can do without any equipment at all—and some that can be done using your own bodyweight and a TRX or band. While these exercises are great for attacking your chest—the pectorals major and minor—they'll also help get your deltoids, triceps, abs, and more muscles in on the action.

Dorian Yates' Daily Meal Plan

Some bodybuilders equate sugar with energy and therefore jump to the conclusion that it’s best to load carbs prior to a workout as a kick-starter. That’s exactly the wrong thing to do, because your blood sugar levels will actually drop during the training session, and you’ll fatigue more quickly and lose endurance. To maximize energy and recovery, like I say, I schedule a carb drink immediately after the workout is over. One hour later, I eat another balanced meal of protein (beef, chicken or fish) and carbs (potatoes or rice and a fibrous green vegetable). Lack of careful planning is the main impediment to making progress. Only so many nutrients can be absorbed in one meal; to supply your body with its essential muscle-building elements, your goal should be to eat six or seven small meals.

10 Training Mistakes That Kill Progress

I don't mean to be brutally honest, but you don't always need an arm or chest day. Instead, think of the push-pull leg principle as the building block of your program. And if you're a risk taker, then do a vertical and horizontal pull-day as well as a standing vs. laying down push-day. This will put you at five training days a week, but feel free to add a second leg day.

25 foods you shouldn't eat

You have your doubts about what’s in sausage, but that doesn’t stop you from having a link or two with breakfast, and grilling up a brat for lunch. But, know this: two links of store-bought breakfast varieties have 420 mg of sodium. And bacon? Three slices boast 450 mg. But the health problems are far worse than the salt. Men who eat processed meat every day have lower sperm counts than those who consume them sparingly. And fast food burgers? They're even worse. A whopping 64 percent of calories come from fat. Cruise home and grill your own.

Barbell Row for the Deadlift?

THAT HAVING BEEN SAID they can be a good assistance exercise for deadlifts. But not because they are great at stimulating the lats and mid back (they are inferior to many pulling/rowing variations in that regard). But rather because they are effective at strengthening the lower back by having you maintain that bent over position under load. In other words they can help the deadlifting by strengthening the lower back and specifically its capacity to maintain a solid neutral position under load.

7 Curls for Bigger Biceps

You can also perform these with an EZ bar, which are called — that’s right — EZ-bar curls. In either variation, where you grip determines which part of the biceps you work. “It’s an inverse property,” he adds. “Gripping inside works the outside of the biceps, and an outside grip works the inside of the grip. Use an EZ curl bar for definition or to even out your biceps.”

Boost Your Testosterone on a Vegan Diet

Let's dispel a myth about soy, as it is one of the most commonly used protein source amongst vegans and it does contain estrogen-like compounds. A common misconception is that eating too much soy can lead to lower testosterone levels, however, a meta analysis conducted by Jill Hamilton-Reeves. Ph.D. and Mark Messina, Ph.D. concluded that 'neither soy foods nor isoflavone supplements alter measures of bioavailable T concentrations in men.

Training Mistakes Part 2

Choosing the correct exercises is crucial to success. It does no good to be strong in the wrong exercises. For squatting and deadlifting, the glutes, hamstrings, and hips are the most important. Reverse hypers, glute-hams, inverse curls, leg curls of all types should be included, but the lifter must never forget the abs! The abs must start every lift. That is why the lifter should take a deep breath before starting the bench or standing press, squat, or pull.

The Complete Guide To Shoulder Training | T Nation

Avoid retracting your shoulder blades so that you isolate the rear delt. Keep in mind that the function of the rear delt is simply to move the humerus back, not bring the shoulder blades together. I cue this by telling people to keep their scapulae still and then bring their arm back by "pinching" with their rear delts. If you do it right, you'll know what I mean by pinching.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, July 30, 2017

Sunday, July 30, 2017 - Romance is in the air, but an opportunity to pursue an unusual relationship could disappear before you know it. Your infatuation may extend into online interactions, yet it’s challenging to distinguish social media connections from real life ones. Nevertheless, don’t be dissuaded now because someone seems so different from you. You might be delighted by how much you can have in common with another openminded person if you give each other a chance. A friendship is a lovely place to start.

Matt Morgan is On the Rise

Matt Morgan is used to standing out. Whether it was as the most athletic giant in the ring during his days in the WWE and TNA Wrestling or as a member of the second coming of American Gladiators, Morgan has been used to getting attention and establishing his dominance. Nowadays he stands out on a different platform when he takes to the stage at a men’s physique contest. It’s pretty easy to draw attention when you’re 7' tall and almost 300 pounds in contest shape. It’s believed that “the Blueprint” is the world’s largest men’s physique athlete.

10 Signs You're Bad in Bed and Don't Even Know It

The problem: You come home after thinking about sex all day and try to stick your penis in her right away. She, on the other hand, has not been thinking about sex. She’s been thinking about work, that squabble with her best friend, and what she’s making for dinner. She’s not warmed up, therefore she's not going to enjoy it. Fix it: “Foreplay, foreplay, foreplay—I can’t say it enough!” Morse says. You may be ready to go the second you get home, but you have to remember, sex is mostly mental for women. They have to be warmed up, physically and mentally. “Most women not only enjoy foreplay, but we need it in order to get aroused before actual intercourse,” Morse says. Foreplay can even start hours before you're through the door. Send her a text about how much you can’t wait to see her or how beautiful she looked this morning. Then when you get home kiss and caress her before you start taking her clothes off. Foreplay isn’t a suggestion; it’s a requirement for most women.

6 Ways to Train for Striations

Individual muscles must be worked to their  capacity for every set, and the most efficient means I’ve found to achieve that state is with a minimum of 10 reps per set — and often as many as 15. Commanding an individual muscle to perform the bulk of the work from the very first repetition of a set is easy when you’re using light weight, but not enough stress is applied. The first few reps with heavy weight, however, require you to concentrate more on overcoming  and controlling the resistance than on the specific muscle’s contractions and extensions. Not until the fourth or fifth rep does a muscle adjust to flexing that heavy weight solely by itself to reach optimum efficiency. By aiming for higher reps, I am using those first few reps to acquaint the muscle with the weight. Thereafter, I’m getting five to 10 perfect heavy contractions and extensions before the set is finished.
