I have tried a lot of protein bars and hands down, the salted coffee pretzel are the best. Not chewey like most bars. I have some vanilla marshmallow ot add some variety and these are also excellent. My young son took a bite of the vanilla marshmallow an liked it. I went thru a box of s’mores and these were ok. I’m not sure they tasted like s’mores but the must because I opened one and my wife said it smelled like s’mores.

Develop the Ultimate Overhead Press | T Nation

Consider that the humeral head is classified into three types: Type A (smooth), Type B (curved), and Type C (hooked). Your type determines which press you'll be capable of doing correctly. We don't need to get into how to classify yourself, but suffice it to say, performing an overhead variation for eight weeks that causes you to get injured doesn't really help.

7 Dumb Things Lifters Argue About | T Nation

Lifting 3-4 days a week (and training each muscle 2-3 times per week) works best for the vast majority of lifters. If time and energy are super-tight, 2 days a week is almost as good. If you can afford to live at the gym and don't have any type of a real life, 5-6 days might be slightly better than 3 or 4 days.

Tip: Why I Dropped The Low Carb Diet - Biotest

Seems like a lot of personal trainers are attracted to the low carb/moderate fat methodology because 90% of their clients are focused on losing fat. And while low-carb and medium fat dieting isn't necessarily more effective, it's extremely simple. So a personal trainer who doesn't want to spend a lot of time learning about nutrition can simply lower carbs and increase fat a bit and their clients will get some fat loss. However, it might not be best for everybody in every situation.

Tip: The Truth About Testosterone and Aggression | T Nation

Granted, playing video games and testing player's responses might not be the most dramatic way to test the effects of testosterone on aggression, but it's easy. While it might have been more instructive to have some test subjects drive slowly down the fast lane in a Prius while being tail-gated by testosterone-enhanced BMW drivers and counting the horn blasts, raised middle fingers, rammings, or shots from a handgun, the computer game was much more ethical and less problematic.

10 Amazing Facts About Testosterone | T Nation

A student at Georgia State University named Jonathan Bassett had read implications in the scientific literature that females with higher testosterone levels gave birth to more boys than girls. While this doesn't make much sense off-hand, high levels of testosterone in fertile females might affect the viability of male and female zygotes after conception.

Tip: This Type of Exerciser Earns More Money | T Nation

But it could also be a chicken-and-egg issue. And correlation doesn't imply causation. Maybe goal-oriented, responsible, harder-working people are more drawn to the gym to begin with. Exercise didn't cause them to earn more money, but those who are driven to earn more just happen to also want to take care of themselves more and push themselves harder.

Tip: How to Customize Your Fat Intake | T Nation

When it comes to fat for health and weight loss it really comes down to understanding how it affects hunger, energy, and cravings or what I call HEC (pronounced "heck"). If including fat in a meal makes HEC stay in check for longer, then I want my patients to discover that. If eating fat results in HEC going out of check, that's also extremely useful to understand.

Thibaudeau's Simple Fat Loss Strategies | T Nation

If you aren't going to train hard, and your goal is fat loss, then you don't need "fast fuel" that day. Note that if your goal is to build maximum size, not get lean, I recommend having carbs on off days. But when trying to get lean this is a very simple approach. You don't even need to necessarily count calories, just don't eat any carbs.

Tip: Eat Fat, But Find the Middle Ground | T Nation

That's why I like to recommend between 20-30% of total calorie intake coming from fat for the majority, or 0.4g per pound, which tends to work out to be a similar amount. There will be some cases when this goes lower (toward the final stages of a competition prep) or higher (if using a low carb diet), but for most people this is a good place to be.

29 Max Muscle Leg Blast | Exercises for Bigger Wheels

Guy has the rare look of quads that hang over the kneecaps, which is what made the quads of men like Tom Platz and Paul “Quadzilla” DeMayo so impressive. While Guy freely concedes that he was gifted with some extraordinary genetics for the entire lower body, he still feels most bodybuilders fall far short of their full leg development potential because they don’t train legs like a bodybuilder should. “Too many bodybuilders try to be powerlifters, and lift way too much weight with absolutely shitty form,” he declares. “I see it every day in the gym, guys doing half-reps, or using momentum to move the weight rather than their muscles. If they understood that judges don’t give a shit how much they lift and understand that they are judged on their physiques rather than the weight they use in the gym, they would have much more developed legs.” Did you all hear and understand that? I sure hope so, because I absolutely agree with Guy that this is what is keeping most bodybuilders from ever having great legs.

Hot Debate: Which Squat is Best? | T Nation

The powerlifting squat (hip squat/bent over squat/low bar squat) is a more hip dominant squat that reduces quadriceps stimulation. Why? As mentioned, the muscle being stretched the most will be the muscle being recruited the most. In a powerlifting squat the hips move a lot further back, the knees don't travel far forward (the tibias stay almost perpendicular to the floor) and there's less flexion at the knees.

4 Exercises for Real Posture Improvement | T Nation

Using your body plus gravity and a foam roller is a great way to make the spine feel extension without a real muscular force-feed. Being able to have the back and shoulders fold around the roller can help the body and spine connect the brain to the feeling of extension without too much muscular "fighting for position." It's actually more of a relaxing stretch. Using different arm positions can be a game changer to help understand how this translates to overhead exercises.

Tip: The Food Pyramid Was Wrong About Fat - Biotest

Monounsaturated fats should be your focus. Think olives, avocados, almonds, organic butter, etc. Whenever possible, eat your fat via the food source from which it's derived. I recommend it over consuming just the oil, which I liken to porn. You know, sex without the physical intimacy of another person. Indulging in Castelvetrano green olives is far better than swallowing a tablespoon of just olive oil.

Tip: The SEAL Push-Up Challenge | T Nation

Any challenge that encourages you to do as many reps as possible of a certain exercise is obviously going to be difficult. The kicker with this exercise, however, is you get a short break between the push-ups and the arm raises which allows you to recover just enough to perform your next round.

The 40-Day Program - Biotest

The first time I tried this program under Pavel's direction, I added 15 pounds to my lifetime incline bench press during the twenty-first workout, approximately a month after starting the program. I did this max with no spotter and I got the lift for a double. It was a 15-pound improvement over my lifetime best with an extra rep as a parting gift without doing a single hard workout. Just two sets of five anytime I entered the gym.

44 Tip: The Keto Diet Doesn't Like Muscle - Biotest

"This research showed no significant changes nor effect size on lean body mass, despite hyper-energetic condition and high protein intake (2.0 g/kg/d) in resistance-trained men of the ketogenic diet group. Thus, we conclude that low-carbohydrate dietary approaches would not be an optimal strategy for building muscle mass in trained men under the training conditions of this study (mechanical tension-focused resistance training protocol during 8 weeks)."

Pro Series Alpha Test | MuscleTech

Fitness: I’ll typically take 2 capsules with coffee, as soon as I wake up. By the time I get ready and head to the gym, it’s usually flowing through my system. What I enjoy about this product, is that I can still get an amazing workout, without having to wait for that jolt or punch from a preworkout. Instead, I just feel stronger, and a consistent/sustained energy level. I also take less breaks in betweeen sets, while feeling more inclined to lift heavier than I usually would. Day to day: On days that I run, or just don’t workout, I will still find myself taking Alpha Test. I feel that my mind is clearer, and I feel better overall. It’s nice knowing my body is still getting the fuel that it needs, to continue operating at optimal levels. You’ll love it!

Tip: The Simple Math of Rapid Fat Loss - Biotest

Here's the math to calculate it for your own caloric needs: 2400 calories x .35 = 840 calories. To find out how many grams of protein that is we'd divide that number by 4 (because there are 4 calories per gram) and get 210 grams of protein per day.

Tip: Don't Do Straight Sets | T Nation

It works like this: Do a set of dumbbell bench presses, do a set of barbell rows for your lats in between, and then go back to your next set of dumbbell bench presses. (Then keep alternating for the desired number of sets.) You'll actually experience less of a drop in strength from set to set compared to straight sets.
