GAT PMP at Bodybuilding.com - Best Prices on PMP!

I picked this up from a GNC two weeks ago. It was between this and Nitraflex, and the employee said he recommended this one over Nitraflex. I believe I've tried this years before, so I figured I'd give it another shot. It was disappointing to say the least. I tried it on its own, first one scoop and then two scoops, and it didn't improve my workout at all. Then I tried one scoop mixed with one scoop of GNC's Lit, and it didn't feel any different than if I'd just used the Lit. My pumps weren't any more noticeable than before, and I didn't gain any significant energy boost. The raspberry lemonade flavor was decent, but nothing that I'd salivate over in the morning. I returned this to GNC after using four scoops in total. If this works well for others, good for them. It simply didn't do much of anything for me.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Combat Crunch Bars | MusclePharm

I'm not sure if I got a bad bar out of a batch, but I picked up the Chocolate Coconut one. The "flavor" is great, however the bar itself was HORRIBLE. I nearly broke my teeth trying to bite into this thing. This was unlike any other protein bar I've ever tried as none have been like this. I honestly had to bite it on the side of my mouth and bend it down to break a piece off. Then it took FOREVER to chew. I would never get this again! Initially I thought the bar might have expired to go this hard, but it doesn't expire till August and it's currently June as I write this. I have another bar of a different flavour I'm going to try and hoping it's not like this.

16 Tips to Build Giant Shoulders

“I think free weights are more effective to build mass, and more recently I have also found that they are actually safer to press with. They are more effective because they force you to work harder to balance and coordinate the movement. In a way, that limits the amount of weight you can lift but that’s actually a good thing. For about a year or two, I was doing almost all my shoulder pressing with a Smith machine. I didn’t have to balance it, so I could just load up a lot of weight and push! I could get reps with four 45s on each side. But here’s the problem. With a barbell, your body will adjust to its natural position that’s best and safest for your structure. With a machine, you are always in the same position and maybe it’s not right for you. Another problem with machines, at least for me, is I don’t warm up as much because I don’t feel like I need to, so I get to the very heavy weights fast. Long story short, I started to get shoulder pain for the first time in my life. I went back to using only free weights for my pressing, and soon the pain went away. So for anyone who thinks machines are always safer than free weights, I found out that’s not true at all.

Tip: A Cheap Way to Improve Your Diet | T Nation

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.) The bags typically cost just two bucks.

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: 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.

Tip: Always Start With An Empty Bar | T Nation

Using an empty bar will allow for some instinctive regulation in regards to loading patterns, rather than just sticking to an outlined routine. If you're scheduled to do heavy-ish sets of 5 but can tell through your empty-bar warm-up that something feels tight or off, lower your intensity for the day and do more volume with a lighter load. This has saved my ass on more than one occasion in regards to avoiding injury, and it'll save yours too.

And she expects you to go rock climbing with her. Still happy with the body your dietary choices have provided for you? Probably not. You might adjust your training, but you'll definitely feel compelled to clean up your diet.

Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. Gregg Valentino Gregg Valentino serves as a warning to current professional bodybuilders. Known as having the biggest biceps in his time, Valentino started to experiment with steroids in order to get as huge as possible. Valentino went from an impressive natural 21-inch bicep to an enhanced 28-inch bicep shortly after he started using steroids. He also injected synthetic oils into his biceps to enhance them even further, making them disproportionate to the rest of his body. Soon after this experiment started, it ended in a spectacularly horrible way. Valentino’s biceps ended up “exploding “ or otherwise bursting from his chemical enhancements, seriously injuring the man for life. In his time as a professional bodybuilder Valentino was considered on of the biggest athletes of the sport, even before drug supplementations.

Back Is The New Glutes | T Nation

Standard seated pulldowns are fine, but if you have access to an iso-lateral pulldown machine that allows you to turn the handles, use it. What's the advantage? Aside from being able to train one arm at a time, you can adjust your technique and grip easily mid-set if you're not feeling the tension in the right place. In fact, you'll notice in the video that I twist the handles from a pronated grip to a supinated one.

In our world, that means after you practice a new exercise – something more complex like an Olympic lifting variation, a gymnastic muscle-up, or a powerlifting-style bench press – go for a run, peddle a bike, or do some kind of CrossFit-style metcon for 15 minutes. Then, get a good night of sleep.

5 Critical Exercises for Athletes | T Nation

The hip flexor muscles are critical to athletic performance because they're responsible for that explosive first step. Unfortunately, they're often wound up too tight because of consistently being in a shortened (flexed) position both in everyday life (sitting) and in sport (crouching). Additionally, they tend to bear the load of core and posterior chain weaknesses, leaving you with tight hips that no stretch can ever fix.

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.

45 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.
