GAT Amino GT at - Best Prices on Amino GT!

I tried this out for 5 weeks as a lower stim preworkout. Primarily this is a BCAA product with caffeine and some electrolytes and digestive enzymes. The other portions (3g aminos, a little HICA) are nice to have. From what I read 500mg 3x daily was a clinically studied and recommended dose. the amount here may be just to have on the label, or could give a little anti-catabolic bump to the Leucine. Either way, I’m not knocking it. What it looks like is a slight amount of betaine & HICA for decreasing soreness. Any little bit helps. Also, I like Citric Acid (absorbption?) & Pineapple Extract (natural vasodilator ). Why I chose AMINOGT and why I’m satisfied with it. I needed to bring down the amount of stims consumed in the morning preworkout, having gone for a few months on 300mg+ almost daily. This gave me just enough to get going. I was never raging in the gym, but I was prepared to do some work. I also appreciate the source being natural green tea instead of anhydrous or synthetic. I had no issues with jitteriness or feeling burnt out. Taste wise - I had Strawberry Kiwi every day and was very good without being overly sweet.

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.

Tip: Three Rules for Dietary Fat - Biotest

Drinking "bulletproof coffee" every morning for breakfast is one example of this. That combination of butter and medium chain triglycerides blended up into a frothy beverage will lead to a rapid artificial increase of ketones in the bloodstream. With all of that readily available energy, your body isn't going to go through all of the extra work to mobilize your own fat stores for fuel. It's also going to ruin your appetite for getting the protein you'll need.

9 . If you're already lean but want to get leaner and already do cardio 4-6 times a week, analyze your diet and cut down there as needed. Adding MORE cardio when you're lean is a sure way to catabolize muscle mass.

Tip: 5 Facts About Fat You MUST Remember - Biotest

Tip: This Powder Has Powerful Hidden Talents | T Nation

You let go of your girlfriend's hand, work your way through the crowd, and start conversing with the hysterical girl in perfect Dutch. She's able to tell you what happened and where she lives and you reunite her with her grateful parents, who happen to be a Baron and Baroness of Holland and you're conferred a Dutch knighthood, wooden shoes, and free passes to the castle of your choice, much to the amazement of your wide-eyed, adoring girlfriend who didn't even know you spoke Dutch!

The Hybrid Athlete Program | T Nation

The best training split is one that stimulates the physiological processes needed to achieve your goals—strength, athleticism, and size—while optimizing recovery of your CNS and joints. This allows you to train consistently. For most, this is a heavy-light upper-lower, or an intensive/extensive upper-lower training split. (Don't get freaked out by all that jargon; there's a sample program below.)

The Best Advice for Women Who Lift | T Nation

When I think of a famous example of a woman who lifts that exemplifies the truest form and awe of a strong woman – extremely unlike a dude, I think immediately of Dana Lynn Bailey. I remember her in the cage at the Olympia and the Arnold, well before her fame made her a household name, lifting insane weights, not only for her size, not only for a girl, but even for a lot of guys. But, she did it very unlike a guy. Dana lifts like a girl, a really strong girl, and she became one of the most famous female lifters doing it. I can't think of a better example for a girl who lifts to emulate.

Be Afraid

“Don’t be afraid to fail.” I fucking hate that phrase. It is used in every setting from sports to business and relationships. The truth is, you should be afraid to fail. Of course, that shouldn’t keep you from trying. This is what people really mean when they say the above phrase. Nonetheless, YOU SHOULD BE AFRAID TO FAIL. You should fear failing to the point that you put in all of the necessary studying, research, time, and effort to accomplish your goals. You should fear it to the point that you do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to be successful so that when the time comes, you know you have a 99% chance of getting it done. Sure, if you fail after that, it simply means you missed something, and because you are afraid to fail, you will know that you will not miss that something again.

Tip: The Most Brutal Smith Machine Exercise | T Nation

Do 10 reps this way. (Which actually turns out to be twenty total reps in reality.) Pour everything into it and leave nothing on the table. You should have visions of Abraham Lincoln cursing at you in Kiswahili about how you neglected your stabilizers as you lie on the floor. If you need to rest for 10 minutes or so before moving on to your next exercise for the day, that's perfectly okay.

Psyllium, found in commercial products like Metamucil, is one of those things that has hidden talents.

Tip: Screw JAMA and Their Fish Oil Report | T Nation

Yeah, right. Look, the paper looked at the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on old coots with prior coronary heart disease and found no preventative effect. Never mind that they under-dosed the fish oil – in some cases by a factor of four – or that they failed to recognize and incorporate one of the basic tenets of the relationship between omega-3s and omega-6s (more on that later), the entire dim-witted world heard about the study and automatically assumed that fish oils weren't good for anything.

Tip: Get Jacked Legs with 50-Percent Sets | T Nation

With no change in the weight, do another set. The goal of the second "set" is to try and get at least half as many reps as you did on the first set. So if you got 12 reps on the first set, you'll rest one minute, and shoot for at least 6 reps on the second set.

The Simple Cure for Weak Body Parts - Biotest

It's human nature to gravitate towards the things we're good at and shy away from the things that make us feel weak. Consequently, our strengths get stronger while our weaknesses get weaker, or at least they appear to be weaker compared to our strengths. That's exactly what happens with weak bodyparts. Weak bodyparts are typically genetic issues that have been compounded by poor training, bad program design, or general neglect.

iSatori Liquid L-Carnitine 3LSxat - Best Prices on Liquid L-Carnitine LS3!

Received this to "test" out from Isatori! I'm not one to hype up a product I don't think performs just because it was given to me. I've only ever used L-Carnitine ( itself ) in around a 1500MG dose, or if it was in my preworkout so not sure I have just a whole lot to compare it to! Flavor is super solid! Mixed Berry is where it's at. Honestly hard not to wanna down more than the recommended dosage. I did as the bottle suggests for the most part, 3oz. 2X a day. Usually took one dose in the morning and one dose before a workout. Around the last week I up'd it to 4oz. ( about spilling out of the cap ) for the remainder of the bottle. Didn't notice just a huge difference so. As far as effectiveness, I seemed to have a bit more energy. I did seem to sweat substantially more. I usually break a sweat fairly easy but with taking this it was almost instant haha. I didn't seem to notice any substantial fat loss per say, but I felt as if I looked like I didn't carry as much water. Whether or not that attributed to sweating my #@@ off I don't know, and I usually take in around a gallon to 2 of water a day so.

Tip: The Cure for Narrow Shoulders | T Nation

Modify a classic exercise to really add some width to your delts. Here's how.


Taurine can be synthesized in the pancreas if sufficient cysteine is available. Taurine is supplied in the diet from meat and animal products such as seafood, meat, milk, and eggs. Vegetarians and vegans tend to be chronically deficient in taurine. One of the more harmful things about nutrient deficiencies associated with the vegan diet is that the lack of taurine leads to chronic anxiety. With the added stress and over-stimulated nervous system that goes with taurine deficiency, vegans can be in for a rough time.

Tip: Eat This to Protect Your DNA | T Nation

It's worth noting that in the telomere/fiber study, their calculations were based on fiber intake of only 10 grams per 1,000 kilocalories of food. Even so, whichever number you may want to shoot for, 10 or 14 or some number in the middle, probably seems daunting. It shouldn't, though. There are plenty of easy ways to load up on fiber.

Back & Biceps

*I did chins both to finish off my back and also pre-fatigue my biceps in the superset.  As such, flex your biceps hard at the top on each rep. I used a cheaper machine here - FYI.  Nothing fancy on the barbell curls other than flexing hard in the contracted position for a split second and controlling the negative.  Perform this superset for 4 rounds.

Push-Pull-Legs: The Ultimate Split | T Nation

But if you're training chest, shoulders, and triceps in one session, then back and biceps the next, you're giving the pushing muscles a chance to be taken through some active and loaded stretching during back day (vertical and horizontal pulling) which can serve as a bit of localized recovery. If you need to stimulate the push muscles again that week, you just throw in another session for it.

Tip: Want Lats? Do One-Arm Barbell Rows | T Nation

Simply stand beside the loaded barbell, reach down and grasp the bar, and start rowing. If you expect this to feel like a regular dumbbell row, then be prepared to be humbled. These are unique, to say the least. When done correctly, you'll feel it from the top of your lat to the bottom.

Glute-Ham Raise. Structural imbalances within the muscles of the posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings, and erector spinae) not only can lead to injuries; they also can affect speed. For example, the lower back muscles are involved in transferring force from the legs to the upper body. The glute-ham raise is an exercise that gives you a lot of bang for your buck because it works the glutes, both the hip extension and knee flexion functions of the hamstrings, and even the calves. As a bonus, by adjusting the foot position you can help resolve running technique problems related to structural imbalances between the medial hamstrings (semitendinosus and semimembranosus), which rotate the foot inward, and the lateral hamstrings (biceps femoris), which rotate the foot outward.  Athletes who run with their feet turned excessively outward should perform the glute-ham raise with their feet turned slightly inward to correct that imbalance.

How to Improve Bone Strength with Exercise

Also, educating older men and women that heavy lifting (with proper coaching and technique) with the spine-loading lifts to improve bone strength is essential. Naturally, base levels of strength and muscle are necessary as well, along with structural balance, but the aim needs to be on training that works, not training that is easy.

Tip: The Weirdest Way to Leg Press | T Nation

Let's turn the Smith machine into a lying leg press machine. You'll need to set the pins or safety catches here so that the bar is resting on them at the bottom. It will need to be high enough for you to wedge yourself underneath the bar, but low enough so that you're getting a decent range of motion. No three-inch rep stuff.
