If the word "dropset" doesn't strike fear in your heart, you've clearly never done one of this man's workouts. Plate after plate, set after set, Charles will take your hamstrings to some scary, but good, places.


By far the best BCAAs I’ve ever used! There were different BCAAs I’ve tried in the past that gave me a sick feeling. I would get nauseaous and lose my appetite for most of the day. I realized it was the BCAAs when I started noticing this feeling happened shortly after taking the product. This made me hesitant to try this brand and their BCAAs. All I can say is this product is just great! It goes down smooth, mixes well, and the taste is just as good! Personally, my favorite was the Pineapple followed by the Lemon Lime then the Watermelon flavor. They all tasted good but I liked one a little more than the other.

Velocity Diet® Plan - The New Science of Rapid Body Transformation - Biotest

I soon asked Chad Waterbury to write a custom training plan, specially designed just for those on this diet. To test out the latest version of the plan, I put T Nation reader Gus Pancho on the latest version of the V-Diet. Gus is 37 years old and lost 40 pounds and nine inches from his belly during and after his Velocity Diet experience.

Syntha-6 Protein Powder | BSN

I love Syntha 6 and have been using it for 2 years on and off now. When taking right I can feel and see the difference. Nothing beats the taste of it too. By taking it right, that means using it twice per day. I've been stacking it with KM isolate in the morning. So immediately after working out, I take km isolate, then I wait 15-30 minutes and take Syntha. It gives me the all day amino coverage that I love. Plus the tastes are amazing. I then take a scoop of Syntha at night before bed. Chocolate cake batter is their best flavor. The birthday cake Remix is amazing too, but it's not as thick and they put too many sprinkles in it. They just sink to the bottom so you get a ton of sprinkles in your last sip. Chocolate milkshake is good but if your a chocolate fan, chocolate cake batted is 10x better. Love this stuff!

Should You Go Keto? | T Nation

I'll play devil's advocate and mention that on a keto diet you'll eventually increase intramuscular fatty acid storage, which can have a positive impact on fullness, but can't completely compensate for the glycogen depletion. In Quebec, low-carb dieting among coaches is still popular (probably one of the last places on earth where some bodybuilders use low-carb diets). We see a common denominator – physiques that look hard, but are super flat.

The Best Damn Strength Plan For Natural Lifters | T Nation

When calculating the load on the chin-up you must include bodyweight in the calculation. If you weigh 200 pounds and your maximum is the addition of 45 pounds, the weight lifted is 245 pounds. If you need to use 82.5% it means 202 pounds, so you'd need to attach a 2.5-pound plate to your waist. If you don't include your bodyweight you'd calculate 82.5% of 45 pounds and it would come up to 37 pounds, which would be way too heavy for the prescribed volume.

Tip: The Hamstring Exercise That Beats Leg Curls | T Nation

The amateur anatomists might be screaming right now because the third hamstring muscle, the semimembranosus, wasn't tested. But the REAL anatomy geeks know that you can't put an EMG electrode on the deep semimembranosus, and it's tough to isolate anyway.

Tip: The Case for Full-Fat Dairy | T Nation

So, for those of you busting your ass to gain some size, why in the world would you choose low-fat or fat-free dairy options? You're trying to sneak calories into your diet, not out of it! Full-fat versions, especially from grass-fed cows, are vastly superior for health and for growth.

The Simple Plan For Stubborn Body Fat | T Nation

Yep, the fat in these areas is the first to show up after a break in your diet and the last to leave when you're looking to build your best body. We'll talk about how to fight it, but first let's get into why stubborn body fat is, well, so damn stubborn.

Why frozen? It's as good as fresh, they come in a variety of blends and can be flavored to suit your tastes, plus they require just a few minutes in the microwave or on the stove. Portion sizes be damned, just remove and prepare as much or little as you like when you eat a meal. (Eating large portions early in the week simply leaves less to consume later and vice-versa.)

Tip: The Daily Stretch Every Lifter Needs | T Nation

When the biceps become tight over time, they start to have an effect on how your shoulders and elbows feel. Many people don't even realize how tight they are until they try this stretch.

Tip: How NOT to Do Shrugs | T Nation

If you insist on doing your part to keep rolling shrugs in style, at least roll your shoulders backward when you do them. That way you can say you do it to give your scapular retractors (rhomboids, middle, and lower traps) a little extra work. No, it doesn't work them well at all since the resistance is going down and your retractors pull back, but hey, at least it's something.

Tip: Lessons from Mike Mentzer | T Nation

To say that Mentzer thought outside the box and went against the bodybuilding establishment is a massive understatement. In fact, reading his writings and books helped shape my own career in this field, not so much because I held strongly to his training beliefs, but because it taught me to think outside the box and question everything, even if it was considered popular.

Tip: Weed and the Munchies | T Nation

Who's right? Well, until recently, the "munchies" wasn't a scientifically proven phenomenon, but weed can lower your inhibitions. And it definitely enhances the smell of delicious foods (journal Nature Neuroscience). Now, some newer studies are pointing to the exact mechanisms.

Tip: Restore Mobility Through Your T-Spine | T Nation

Your thoracic spine sits between the cervical vertebrae in your neck and the lumbar vertebrae in your lower back. A healthy T-spine should be able to move forward, backward, and side to side, as well as rotate. This is not only important for everyday function, it's also vital for people who like to push their limits in the gym.

Hybrid Hypertrophy - Biotest

I titled this program "Hybrid Hypertrophy" since it combines a few different methods into the same session. Up to this point, most of my programs revolved around training a single strength quality within each session. Since this program combines a few methods into each workout, you'll be able to perform it for up to four weeks before switching programs. (Some of my clients have performed this program for as long as six weeks without losing the effect, but stick to four weeks as a starting point.)

Tip: Boost Strength Instantly With 2 Exercises | T Nation

Your support system comes from your glutes, abdominal wall, and lats. When these muscle groups fire together, it forms a super-stiff foundation to support whatever lift you're pulling. That's why Dr. Stuart McGill calls the synchronous firing of the glutes, abdominal wall, and lats, "super stiffness." When these muscles are strong and tight, the nervous system will release more neural input to all your muscles. This is why boosting your squat will also enhance your bench press.

Protein Santa Cheesecake Bites

I don’t know about you, but after eating dinner, I often feel like having dessert. Not a massive desert though—just a bite of something sweet, especially during the holidays. These mini cheesecakes are the perfect way to satisfy your desire for something sweet while holding back on the sugar and calories. They're creamy, sweet, delicious, and macro-friendly, making them a perfect dinner chaser or afternoon snack.

This week I finally hit 4 plates on the squat! Things were feeling good and overall, I'm happy with my form.

29 Four Nutrient Timing Myths You Need To Stop Believing

Rather, the energy that powers your workout comes from glycogen, which is a form of carbs that is stored in the muscles and liver. It takes a few hours for the body to digest carbs and synthesize muscle glycogen, so what you eat in the few hours pre-workout doesn’t have much effect. Those carbs will most likely be in your blood stream, which means that if you eat fast-digesting simple carbs, they will spike insulin and blood sugar, reducing the body’s ability to burn fat. You’ll also feel sluggish, which is obviously something that should be avoided.

Tip: 3 Unexpected Ways to Get Lean | T Nation

A brief walk (casual not brisk) shortly after eating can help put the body in a parasympathetic state and aid digestion. Over the years, researchers have found that a post-meal walk, as short as 15 minutes, can help with digestion and improve blood sugar levels. The benefits also include:

The Cure for Weak Glutes | T Nation

Lack of innervation to the feet and ankles minimizes signalizing and recruitment throughout the kinetic chain, especially to the hips. If you have weak feet and ankles, it's going to be difficult to target the glutes. Besides going barefoot or wearing minimalist shoes, there are numerous drills that can be performed. Any single-leg stand variation, such as the single-leg kettlebell swap, is excellent for improving strength and function.

Berardi's Top 10 Tips - Biotest

So what's one to do when the inevitable occurs? Well, for starters, keep training. Let me clue you in on my basic training philosophy: I never take extended periods of time off from the gym. Sure, if I'm overtrained, I'll be sure to take a week off and ease back into the gym, working systems of the body that will allow me to expend energy without taxing my recovery resources. For example, if my CNS is fried, I'll take a week off and then ease back into the gym with hypertrophy type training or, if it's really bad, some lighter aerobic work that won't overload the nervous system.

Predator v. Prey

Over the years I've lost a step or a dozen, but always have felt like I could still crank off a 4.5 forty yard sprint.  The day my son out ran me doing sprints I needed to reevaluate my predator skills.  I realized then that when the range of motion starts to go, so does the speed.  The day the speed goes is the day you become less dangerous.  Crap!  How are you going to run down an Impala for a kill to feed yourself and your family?    We are designed for the hunt and the kill.

#8: Do intervals for cardio for a greater bump to metabolic rate during the 24-hour recovery period after your workout. Try 8-second bike sprints followed by 12 seconds active rest, repeated for a total of 20 minutes. 

Fruits and Veggies - Biotest

If you haven't heard of the wonders of broccoli, you may want to relocate? out from under your rock. With bountiful phytochemicals,(5) including cancer-fighting indoles (also found in cabbage and cauliflower), this is great stuff. Remember that cruciferous veggies provide indole-3-carbinol which has been shown to be anti-estrogenic.(20, 21) And let us not forget the soluble fiber and very few kcal that make broccoli a filling, satisfying boon for dieters. It's a nice big guiltless side dish with grilled chicken, it's a substantial salad improver, and it's even something dip-able to replace chips when eaten raw. I wouldn't personally start eating it by the bushel due to the gassy side effects but a slow progression toward more, in a diet that currently lacks veggies, is a winning move. There's plenty more to discuss but suffice it to say that mom was right: eat your friggin' broccoli.

Deconstructing the Deadlift | T Nation

In a deadlift, the correct start position finds the hip angle more closed and the knee angle more open than in the low-bar squat bottom position, with the hamstrings stretched slightly beyond their resting length, allowing them to contribute primarily isometrically as they hold the back angle in place, as well as contributing to hip extension at the top of the pull as they return to their resting length.

Tip: The Perfect Multi-Purpose Breakfast | T Nation

I demand a lot of things from my Monday through Friday breakfast. Weekends are of course for bacon, eggs, and flapjacks. After all, I'm no purist. But during the week? I want tons of protein. I want scads of polyphenols. I want a wheelbarrow of fiber so I can poop like a police horse (not while walking or anything – that's disgusting. I meant, you know, with regularity).

7 Ways to Fix Anterior Pelvic Tilt | T Nation

Those in APT should avoid sleeping on their stomachs. This will only encourage more of an extension-bias and leave you wondering why your back is in pain in the mornings. It's just not comfortable for the spine to stay locked in a position it's already too far into to begin with. So sleep on your side or back. It won't be an easy transition, but it'll be worth it when you see your posture improve.

The Flat Butt Fix | T Nation

The goal is to tax the heck out of your glutes, not your entire lower body. So if you do a glute-intensive exercise, pump a ton of blood into the area, and then can't get a mind-muscle connection with your glutes anymore, call it a day there, or move on to a finisher, HIIT, or abs.
