10 Best Moves to Lose Your Love Handles

You’ve tried situps, cardio, and dumbbell side bends, but nothing seems to get rid of that stubborn belly fat on your sides. Commonly called “love handles,” this area of your torso is part of the waist-to-hip ratio, an indicator of overall health.

Everything You Should Know About the Alkaline Diet

The good thing about the alkaline diet is the foods that are supposed to help alkaline your body are great for you. The typical American diet contains many foods that are considered "acidifying". These foods include; meat, dairy, corn, wheat and many other processed foods. The standard American diet does not include enough alkaline foods to balance this out. Foods recommended to be eaten with this diet are; a wide array of fruits and vegetables, while avoiding processed foods. This aspect of the diet I really like.

10 Tips To Break Through Your Fat Loss Plateau

If you’re carrying too much fat — specifically around your lower abs — you might have low testosterone levels. But the consequences of “low T” resonate far beyond love handles: it can hurt your health, sex life, and overall mood (which might be related to sex life). To raise your testosterone levels, you need to focus on heavy, total-body lifts that stimulate a lot of muscle growth, demand an intense neural drive, and unleash a massive hormonal response. Heavy strength exercises also speed up your fat loss compared to bicep curls and calf raises, which will shed fat faster. Your workouts must consist of heavy squats, deadlifts, lunges, barbell presses (flat bench or overhead), heavy rows, and carries. Also, lift as heavy as you can while using great technique.

6 Most Important Post-Workout Nutrients

The good news is they’re also primed to take up whatever nutrients you throw at them and turn this state of disarray into an anabolic state of recovery and muscle growth. You’d better hurry, though. Research suggests there’s a 45-minute window after workouts when muscles will take in higher amounts of nutrients. Miss this opportunity, and recovery and muscle growth will be compromised.

The 7% Body-Fat Diet

We estimate that the average weightlifting guy walks around at about 15% body fat. This is well within healthy levels, but it’s not going to turn many heads on the beach. (Reminder: Beach abs are carved in winter.) To look that good, you need to get below 10%—the point at which most guys can see some definition—and preferably as low as 7%. That seems to be the magic number associated with adjectives like shredded, diced, and genetically gifted (haters always gon’ hate). The plan is simple: six-pack, 7%, eight weeks. let’s go.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Explains Why Bodybuilding Today Sucks

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a true pioneer of the sport. The man was a force of nature and dominated the bodybuilding scene in his youth. These days the seven time Mr. Olympia has taken it upon himself to try to elevate the sport to a higher level. But there are some bumps in the road that can make things difficult.

7 Tips for Burning Fat and Building Muscle

Go outside and take a walk. Do some pushups , do some lunges – just get moving. And if you think you need hours and hours each day, you’re wrong. 10-15 minutes of moving, stretching, doing bodyweight exercises will add up very quickly in a week. Start slow and do 3 times a week and as you progress, do 4 or 5 times a week if you want. Now do this each week over the course of a month, 3 months and a year. Be consistent.

Like Hoss

Fouad “Hoss” Abiad knew he wanted to be a bodybuilder when he attended his first bodybuilding event, the 2000 Toronto Pro. The pro portion of the show was dominated by such bodybuilding legends as Markus Rühl (who won) and future Mr. Olympia Dexter Jackson (runner-up), but it was the amateur part of the contest that stoked Abiad’s competitive fire. “A friend of mine, who I worked with at a bar, was competing,” remembers Abiad. “He was 220 or something like that, and I just thought it was crazy that he was up there, and I wanted to do it.”

6 Simple Moves for Crafting Bigger Calves

Assuming your training volume and intensity are sufficient and your nutrition is on point, it’s going to come down to exercise selection. Let’s take a look at six easy moves to help bust out some bigger calves.

Add One Inch to Your Arms

Band Pushdown Grab an exercise band and tie it to the top of a squat rack or cable machine column. Grab the middle of the band with both hands and tuck your elbows to your sides. Extend your elbows just like in a cable triceps pushdown. Try for 60 reps in 30 seconds (if you can't do it, use a lighter band). It's OK if you break form and rock back and forth a bit.

The Get Ripped Anywhere Outdoor Workout Series

Your body weight can be used to generate any number of training stimuli. Instead of going heavy with weights, you can use explosive, jumping movements to recruit fast-twitch muscle fibers. Rather than perform high reps, you can slow down the tempo you move at, forcing your muscles to stabilize you for an endurance challenge. Finally, you can do a circuit of body-weight moves just as easily as you can do the machine circuit in your gym, but using your whole body and burning more calories as a result.


Scientists think this is due to the fact that Monday night football games begin at 9 p.m. EST regardless of game location, which means West Coast teams are starting to play at what feels like 6 p.m. This is closer to the advantaged time for peak performance when body temperature is warmest.

Keep the Carbs

It's true that cutting chips, cookies, candy, and other carbs from your diet can help you uncover your abs. But if you think eliminating all the carbs is the key to reaching your weight-loss goals, we've got a few reasons to reconsider.

The No-BS Jacked Back Workout Routine

Back training is like the tax code of physique building. The methodology is as diverse as it is mystifying, and as complex as it is confounding, but in the end your goal is simple: You just want to get as much back as possible (pun intended). You experiment with new workouts and flirt with multiple angles, all with the hope of adding a little swole to your rearview. If this sounds like you, breathe deep and let this simple strategy wash over you: Pull heavy stuff. Rest. Repeat.

Straight-Up Biceps Workout

For a workout that hits the biceps from all angles, we called upon Ryan Sullivan, a competitive bodybuilder and the owner of Sci-Unison Fitness (sci-unisonfitness .com) in North Babylon, NY. His routine employs dumbbells, a barbell, and cables and puts the upper arms in various positions: in front of the torso with preachers , behind it with incline curls, at the sides with barbell curls , and, to finish, the arms elevated and parallel with the floor via high-cable curls. Such variety will help ensure that both heads of the biceps get maximum stimulation to grow bigger and stronger.

Plan For Success

Although there are a broad range of variables involved in programming your best workout, the five listed above will be a great start to making your workouts more efficient. Be structured, but be flexible with your plan. Have a reason for doing every single thing you do in the gym. If you cannot answer the question, “Why am I doing this?” then you ought not to be doing it. No one will get huge or ripped without a solid, programming structure. It hasn’t happened yet, and you won’t be the first. FLEX

It addresses power through box jumps; hypertrophy via front squats in a moderate rep range and drop sets of hack squats ; and, for good measure, a hefty workload for your stabilizing muscle fibers with unbalanced lunges. Frankly, it’s a great routine for the guy who wants to look good from the waist down at the pool this summer and also have the ability to engage in the occasional pick-up game without getting embarrassed.

With a constant wave of new workout plans, supplements and studies that provide different ideas on how to approach your training, it can be easy to lose focus of the big picture.

5 Reasons to Never Neglect Water

Research has shown that water speeds up your metabolism, cleans the body of toxins and generally helps to make everything in your body run smoothly. Considering an adult male is usually 60 percent water, this all makes sense. You need that water to digest food, circulate blood, keep your mouth from drying out and do a number of other things we often take for granted. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty – be proactive about it.

Burn Fat On A Budget

If supplements are already part of the budget that you're trying to maintain, you can still save yourself some bucks by simply making smarter choices. Instead of buying your usual two-pound jug of protein , for example, maybe you should invest the $10-15 extra and get yourself the five-pound jug. Instead of buying the fancy, high-end, designer fat-burners, maybe you can try this stack out.
