Tips for Training High School Athletes • Zach Even-Esh

Training young athletes is my passion. I LOVE helping skinny, weak kids go from Boy to BEAST..... not just physically, but mentally as well. But, I feel HORRIBLE for the athletes who are forced to train with a Coach who has NO clue as to WHAT the hell to do with regards to Safe AND …

Powerlifting isn't always fun. You have bad days in the gym, bad training cycles, and bad meets. What happens when the bad outweighs the good? Is it time to consider leaving?

30 Best Bodyweight Exercises for Men

When you walk into the gym and every single bench and squat rack is taken by a bigger, stronger guy or by that “bro” doing curls in the squat rack, you could just turn around and walk out and say you’ll come back later. However, that isn’t an option when you’re trying to be your best you, because you know consistency is key. That one day off can lead to a week, which can lead to a month, and so on. Add these moves to your arsenal and watch the fat melt off your midsection all while building muscle, without skipping a day.

5 Things You Should Know About Avocados

3) While the banana is most famous for potassium content, a typical avocado contains 35% more potassium (684mg vs. 505) than that of its long, yellow cousin. Avocados are also a decent source of calcium and magnesium, crucial electrolytes for athletes because of their role in muscle function and fluid balance.

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: 5 Rules For Training Success | T Nation

Amit Sapir was born in Israel but he was raised on T Nation. He's been a member since T Nation launched in 1998. Amit has gone from knowledge hungry teenager, to soldier, to qualifier for the 2004 Olympic Games in weightlifting, to IFBB pro bodybuilder. That's why we're glad to have him on the Biotest training team. He's the real deal. Follow Amit Sapir on Facebook

The Truth About Nighttime Eating | T Nation

Additionally, there's a problem with practically all of the studies in that they focus on the biological instead of the psychological. Human types are prone to "hedonic hyperphagia," which is the drive to eat for pleasure when you're not in a calorie deficit. I guess this is like hedonic drinking, hedonic sex, or hedonic bowling. Anyhow, it's known in less scholarly circles as "the munchies," or eating for the eff of it.

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.

There a lot of things to worry about when it comes to your health. Needing to detox isn't one of them. Here's why.

Tip: Master This Before You Deadlift | T Nation

The hip hinge is often confused with the deadlift, which is a specific exercise that falls under the hip hinge umbrella. While not every hip hinge is a deadlift, every deadlift is a hip hinge pattern. Many people don't deadlift because they think it's too risky. And since the deadlift is the only hip hinge exercise they know, they skip training the entire movement pattern. The result? More low back pain, more injuries.

Having a strong grip for deadlifts is important. You can't deadlift what you can't hold on to. The thing is, grip work is boring. By ditching the straps and getting in some high reps, you're killing two birds with one stone. It's bad-ass hypertrophy work for the upper back mixed with holding on for dear life for a couple of all-out sets. Do 20-30 reps here, Kroc-row style .

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.

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.

6 Fitness Myths That May Be Holding You Back!

For guys, the most stubborn fatty areas are usually the love handles, lower abs, and lower back; for women, it's usually the hips, butt, and thighs. "These areas have a high amount of alpha-receptors, which are more insulin sensitive and receive less blood flow," Lopez says. "After being on prep for, say, 13-15 weeks, you might hit a fat-burning plateau and notice those areas are the last to get really lean. When that time comes, consider getting on the treadmill to help dial it in."

Bench Training

I decided to do one set too many today. That lest set with 365 barely got half way up and just stopped there...I was done. On a good note, the cortisone shot helped out my shoulder, but not so much for the elbow. I'll take it though.

Tip: The 4 Squat Progressions | T Nation

Now, when I say "squat" I bet the image you have in your mind is that of a barbell back squat taken to ass-to-grass depth. That is one squat pattern variation, but it's by no means the only way to squat. And for the record, you're not less of a man if you don't squat with the bar on your back.

Tip: Your Fancy Pink Salt Is Worthless | T Nation

For instance, a teaspoon of sea salt contains around .2 mg of iron. That's fine, but your daily value of iron, if you're a man, is about 8 mg. If you're a woman, it's about 18 mg. Either way, if you're depending on sea salt to fulfill your daily requirements for certain minerals, you're not a human – you're a flounder.

The 7 Smartest Workout Tips of All Time | T Nation

Grab a pull-up bar at about shoulder width, keep your shoulders down and back in a solidly packed position, and enjoy the vertebral decompression effects of just hanging around. Ideally, find the highest pull-up bar you can. Extend your entire body out nice and straight for the most benefit. If you're too tall or the bars in your gym are all too low, extend your legs out slightly in front of you with your feet just off the floor rather than tucking your feet behind you.

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.

The Complete Arnold

In more recent days, the Austrian Oak wrote a column, “Arnold’s Page,” in FLEX every month. Some months, questions were answered; other months, he discussed a training topic that should be of interest to a majority of our readers. Either way, it’s the same great information dispensed by the most famous bodybuilder the world has ever known.

7 Common Moves Where Form is Often Flawed

In my last article I highlighted several exercises where proper form and technique are crucial in order to prevent potentially serious injuries. In this piece I will again talk about form, but more so in relation to optimizing muscle targeting. I have chosen the seven exercises that I have seen “abused” by gym-goers most often in all my years of pumping iron. I feel this is an extremely important topic because so often people blame lack of results on poor genetics when it is actually the result of incorrect exercise performance.

Train Like The Rock: Dwayne Johnson's Shoulder Routine

Johnson hits the gym six days per week, usually focusing on one body part per day. At 45, he's a seasoned, instinctive trainer. "I go by feel," he says, and notes that when he's in the gym it's all business. "I have my headphones on. I'm listening to my music. I'm 100% focused. There's no wasted time and no wasted effort when it comes to me and the weights." And The Rock's favorite body part? Legs, which is why he leaves them for Saturday when he has extra time to train them.

Main lifts are based off a percentage of your 1-rep max (1rm) in that lift, and the percentage changes each week (see the percentage charts to determine what weight you should use). Rest between sets is listed in seconds. Flexibility work such as static stretching and foam rolling should be performed at the end of each session.

What to do if you’re too big for your partner

If you're with a new girl, you have one of two options. You can unsheathe your sword and let her reaction guide your response ("after all, every vagina is different," Van Kirk says). Or, you can recognize the elephant in the room and tell her you have a large penis before you have sex. "This is not usually ego driven because lots of men have had negative sexual experiences including pain, impairment or injuries as a result of not mentioning it," Van Kirk says. By mentioning it early on, you can have a more open discussion and ease into different positions without her feeling pressure to just go along for the ride. This is important for you, too; some positions can actually break your penis .

Heath '06 vs. Heath '16

“How does he look?” FLEX’s editor-in-chief asked me after I journeyed backstage before the 2006 Colorado Pro. “Small,” I answered. “But at least he’s peeled.” You got the sense that success was coming too fast for Phil Heath. Sure, he had those round muscle bellies and that pleasing shape. But he was a puppy. When he made his pro debut in Denver on May 13, 2006, and followed up a week later with the New York Pro, the 26-year-old was still merely three years past his first contest. He wasn’t going to outsize any decent pro. So he and nutritionist Hany Rambod wisely maximized his conditioning, coming in at a weight t for the 212 division, had there been one then. Luckily for Heath, the two shows were void of mass monsters. He won both, though some monster- seeking New Yorkers booed their displeasure. A year later, when he was a humbling fifth in the Arnold Classic, the future six-time Mr. O learned the limits of shape and striations. Thereafter, the Gift went about growing.

Jay Cutler's 7 Tips for Building Huge Triceps

I wasn’t blessed with the greatest genetics for triceps, but I learned to work with my body structure. You have to be open-minded with the exercises you choose. I learned very early that skull-crushers (lying triceps extensions) weren’t the only exercise for tris, contrary to what a lot of people seem to think. Cable movements can be very beneficial for size and shape. It’s just a matter of finding the right position for your body structure and really putting your mind into working the muscle.

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.

Leaning Lateral Raises to Build Bigger Shoulders

For most people, the conventional lateral raise doesn’t provide enough stimulation, because you don’t experience much tension on the delt until your arm is halfway up. The leaning lateral changes the angle so that your delts work even in the bottom position, making the lift more challenging and more effective when you’re looking to sculpt rounder shoulders .
