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.

Tip: Ditch This Exercise | T Nation

You see the dumbbell side bend all the time in the gym, but this exercise doesn't make biomechanical sense. There's not much resistance when you're standing upright holding a dumbbell because the dumbbell is very close to your body, giving you a huge mechanical advantage over the weight. And many people even do it by holding two dumbbells, one on each side:

7 Smarter Exercises for Delts, Abs & Legs | T Nation

With your elbows slightly bent, raise your arms up, either out in front of your body for front raises or out to the sides for lateral raises, until your elbows are even with (or just above) your forehead. Don't swing the weight up. Slowly lower the dumbbells back to your sides. Use deliberate control on the lifting and lowering portion of each rep.

Tip: A Better Way to Build Forearms | T Nation

People have enough problems keeping their elbows healthy without cranking out short range-of-motion wrist extensions and curls on a regular basis. More times than not, the minor muscle-building benefits of direct wrist and forearm flexor and extensor work don't exceed the possible muscular and tendon stress and general waste of training time.

Tip: Steroids vs. Your Heart | T Nation

People always assumed steroids could mess with your heart, but were they right? Here's the new research.

Rotation Training for Athletes & Lifters | T Nation

Where strength and power athletes make their biggest mistakes in sport specific training is trying to recreate field and court actions in the weight room. They'll often use cables, bands, or unstable surface training, but why not just coach the actual movement pattern itself? This simple application provides the greatest transference along with the most optimal motor learning environment.

Tip: A Better, Stricter Way to Barbell Row | T Nation

Traditional barbell rows can put undue stress on the lower back, especially if you have a history of lower back issues. The risk just doesn't outweigh the reward when there are so many other options to choose from. Not to mention, you hardly ever see them done well. The "row" usually deteriorates into something that resembles a monkey humping a football.

Tip: The Right Way to Do Hanging Leg Raises | T Nation

Whether you're hanging from a pull-up bar, have your elbows in those ab straps, or you're on a machine, the leg raise is a great exercise... if you do it right. But most people don't. They start with their legs hanging straight down then flex at their hips. That's mostly a hip flexor exercise, not an ab exercise.

Tip: A Smarter Way to Build Your Neck & Traps | T Nation

Unless you plan in taking part in activities that involve mandatory head trauma, there are better ways to build up your yoke. The truth is that most lifters are after a hypertrophy and strength response in the traps, and working the smaller segmental stabilizers or dynamic movers isn't going to get them there.

2017 Summer Shred: Workout Program

This program dispels the notion that lifting  heavy is exclusively for strength gains. And while chasing one-rep maxes won’t pave the way to massive muscles, heavy lifting is important for two reasons: First, a stronger muscle can handle more reps and more weight. And since your muscles need a new challenge to adapt to grow—like more reps lifted or heavier weight on the bar—the ability to lift heavier weight for more reps will translate to more inches on your muscles over time. Second, hoisting serious poundage with compound movements like the deadlift, squat, and bench press triggers a greater release of testosterone, a key hormone that’s responsible for the growth and recovery of your muscles. The cluster sets we programmed will allow you to lift weight close to your one-rep max—and for more reps than you would normally be able to accomplish. How? By breaking up the sets into subsets (more on cluster sets below). The effect is a greater accumulation of volume and a bigger release of testosterone, which will prime your body to more efficiently build muscle and oxidize—nerd speak for burn—fat.

3 Exercises to Build a Wide Back Fast

Barbell rows are the primary mass builder and for good reason: My style of doing the movement ties into all areas of the back. I take an overhand grip on the bar — my hands are a little less than shoulder-width apart — and adopt a position in which my body is at a 70-degree angle to the floor. Most bodybuilders do barbell rows with their bodies parallel to the floor, pulling the bar into the chest. But if you want to hit the bulk of the lats and lift with max weight, align your upper body at a 70-degree angle and pull the bar up off the floor and lift it to the waist.

Yoke Your Traps for the Ultimate Upper-Body

As long as you're  training upper  traps for that Dwayne Johnsonesque, yoked-out look, it’s a good idea to hit the other two portions of the trapezius muscles as well: the middle and lower traps. Not so familiar with those? They’re part of the back musculature and are involved in most pullup, pulldown, and rowing movements, but zeroing in on them via isolation exercises promotes balanced development that enhances posture and reduces injury risk.

The chicken-leg elimination workout

If you love the gym, chances are you don't mind squats. But if you're more of the "kinda-workout-to-stay-fit" guy, you probably despise them. Too bad. It's going to be the cornerstone of this routine for one simple reason: it works better than any other exercise. There's really not much to it after that. Just put in the work, and make sure to eat up. Oh, don't forget to work in some stiff-leg deadlifts on back day.

The 10 Most Common Sex Mistakes

Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, August 11, 2017

Friday, August 11, 2017 - Obstacles that have recently blocked your progress seem to disappear on their own now. Perhaps your courageous attitude changes the dynamics, but it’s your undying optimism that adds power to your current efforts. You may feel as if your life is back on track, but overconfidence can quickly become your undoing. Don’t get lazy even if everything seems to be coming up roses today. Mahatma Gandhi said, “The future depends on what we do in the present.”

Tip: What You Don't Know About Overtraining | T Nation

When I first started training I was so anxious to get stronger that I trained almost every day with marathon workouts that would scream "overtraining" on paper. You know what happened? Absolutely nothing. I actually got stronger and it taught me the true meaning of hard work. I wasn't strong enough and hadn't learned how to push myself hard enough to overtrain.

25 Ways to Improve Your Workout

Reality check: No matter how much daydreaming you do, that alternate setting doesn't exist—unless your name is Jay, Ronnie, or Victor, that is. In this time and place, working out plays second fiddle to a number of obligations. And since your time is valuable, you can't waste one second on a bad workout. Hell, the good ones are tough enough to plan for. Strained reps, poor energy levels, incomplete sets, longer-than-desired workouts and shoddy results can leave you feeling like your time in the gym is all for naught. But there are things you can do before and after you head to the gym to ensure supercharged workouts today, tomorrow, and beyond—tips that can improve your efficiency, strength , even your time spent with the iron. If you're going to schedule your day around the gym, make sure you head in there well-rested , your strength tank topped off, your playlist ready to go, and the following pointers in tow. The result? A stronger, fitter body. Now that's a reality worth reaching for. Incorporate as many of these tips as possible to start maximizing the benefits of your gym time.

10 Mistakes Women Make in the Gym | T Nation

Insulin shuttles off some of the sugar to muscle cells and the rest are stored (in the liver or as body fat), but then insulin levels dip below baseline and you get hungry again pretty fast. If you give in to that hunger, you're ingesting more calories than you might normally have and extra, unnecessary calories get stored as fat.

Tip: Drop the Fat, Chase Relative Strength | T Nation

If your goal is to lift for a lifetime, better get your health on track first. And once you make the shift and achieve a pedestrian body fat percentage and relative strength metric, I guarantee you'll never want to go back to your fat boy days. And if you do, well, that's an entirely different story.

Tip: How to Train Your Calves Without a Machine | T Nation

You can do them single-leg or double-leg, but I much prefer single leg because a) it just feels better and b) the non-working leg can serve as a "spotter" in case you lose your balance. Balance shouldn't be an issue since you're using the rack for support, but if you do start to feel shaky just tap the free leg down to rebalance yourself. You can also use the free leg for a little added boost at the end of the set to help squeeze out a few more self-assisted "forced" reps.

Tip: The Unexpected Effect of High-Protein Diets | T Nation

In the past, you had two choices as to how to respond. You could either ignore them, or give them the ol' Italian fongool with the requisite forearm gesture. Now you've got a third option.

The 6 Worst Things You Can Do For Bigger Biceps

While there is nothing inherently wrong with training lats and biceps on the same day, if biceps growth is a priority then these two muscle groups are better done separately. Since lat movements involve pulling, they tax the biceps and thus compromise the intensity you can put into your curls, which will in turn hinder long term gains in arm mass.

6 Things You Need To Know About Nitrosigine

Recovery can start before you even walk in the gym with the help of Nitrosigine. You can prepare your muscles for the hard work you’re about to put in. Nitrosigine has been shown to significantly reduce markers of muscle damage from exercise such as creatine kinase. Clinical research showed that Nitrosigine reduced creatine kinase levels after exercise by 56%. 1 Nitrosigine’s impact on muscle damage due to exercise can help you get back to the gym and stay in the game.

Animal Whey by Universal Nutrition at - Best Prices on Animal Whey!

An impressive Supplement Facts box wouldn't be enough, however, it would have to live up to hype in the field—on the weight room floors of the most hardcore gyms in the world... In the shaker cups and blenders of the most committed lifters out there. It would have to mix with ease and taste great, making drinking multiple shakes per day a pleasure, not a painful chore. Because let's face it, if your protein powder tastes like shit, it is less likely you will drink it as much as needed to hit your daily macronutrient goals. Unacceptable. To be worthy of the Animal aegis, it would have to taste as good as it worked. And once again, in this regard, Animal WHEY is a triumph.

Break the Plateau and Grow

People tend to accept a lack of continual progress in the gym, referring to it as “hitting a plateau.” But for
 bodybuilders, being
 stuck at a plateau is 
simply an excuse for
their failure to coordinate heavy training, 
adequate diet/supplementation, and sleep. After all, the top pros know that there are ways to tweak their training and diet to avoid plateaus—that’s one reason why they show up onstage larger and leaner every year.

Report: MMA Star Jon Jones Failed a Drug Test Before UFC 214

While the news may come as a shock, Jones has had a turbulent career. For first-time offenders, this violation would warrant a two-year suspension by the USADA. However, for Jones—who also failed a drug test just over a year ago at UFC 200, and was arrested for a felony hit-and-run in 2015—this is not his first offense. According to the Los Angeles Times , it’s possible that Jones could serve up to double the standard penalty, which would keep him out of the octagon for four years.

The Six Best Exercises For Six-Pack Abs

In fact, repetitive or excessive spinal flexion (e.g., bending your chest toward your knees at the back) is just about "the worst thing you can do for your back," says David Larson, C.S.C.S., a strength coach at Pulse Fitness in Scottsdale, AZ. In addition to swapping crunches for some more complex moves (detailed below), proper diet is essential for carving out that six-pack—just ask any fitness model or strength coach. But here are six key exercises to get you started on making your abs the best they’ve ever been.

The best hardside carry-on luggage of 2017

Raden's hard spinner is seriously sleek—it almost looks like it should belong in a gallery, not an airport—but it's built like a tank. Crafted from specialized polycarbonate, this carry-on can be tackled, dropped, and throttled in transit without ever cracking, mostly because it bends and flexes upon impact. Perhaps the coolest feature, though, is housed within the carry-on's handle: There's a built-in scale to let you know how heavy your luggage is, so you don't exceed your airline's limit. The bag also comes with a built-in battery with two USB ports and enough power to charge most cell phones four times over, a TSA-approved zipper lock, and an inner Bluetooth tracking device to let you know where your stuff is...or isn't. Available in a range of colors. ($295, )

The Top 10 Fat Burners for 2017, Fall Update

With the launch of the latest top 10 fat-burners of 2017, we've seen a key trend emerge: DMAA (an ingredient found in nearly all top fat-burners) is no longer in favor. This year’s list boasts some repeat winners, as well as first-timers. The new No.1, Alpha Lean-7, is completely DMAA-free and overthrew the former No.1 of the last three years in record time (just seven months). With cutting season in full effect, customers look to the top 10 fat-burners to gain an extra edge to shed excess fat and weight to reveal more definition from their hard-earned gains.

Dymatize ISO100 at Best Prices for ISO100

This is one heck of a rebranding! I was excited to try out the rebranded version of Iso 100 by Dymatize, even though I never got to try the older version, but it definitely did not disappoint! First, the ingredient list is great, being that there is 25grams of protein per serving, and a nice breakdown on the back of a typical amino acid profile showing you just exactly how much protein you're getting. It's also very low in calories, fat and sugar all of which are great. Next, the new rebranding of Dymatize is awesome! The blue and white go great together, and the clear information on the entire bottle is really super easy to read and understand for everyone to know everything about the product. And the sight window on the back is a cool feature to see how much protein is in the tub without having to open the top. Now to the best part, the taste! Ive honestly never tasted another Rocky Road flavor protein, but this taste is amazing! It tastes just like Rocky Road ice cream and I couldn't get enough of it! Mixability is great in both water and milk as well. Overall, this is an excellent protein product from Dymatize, that I would highly recommend! UPDATE- The cinnamon bun flavor is out of this world! It really is an amazing flavor, and one that made me crave my post wokrout shake everyday after the gym! Definitely a great addition to this excellent already lineup! UPDATE: The chocolate peanut butter flavor is excellent! One of the best protein flavors that i have ever seen.

The Complete 4-Week Beginner's Workout Program

In the fourth and final week of the program, you’ll train four days in a four-way split that hits each bodypart just once (except for calves and abs, which are each trained twice). Four-day splits are common among experienced lifters because they involve training fewer bodyparts (typically 2–3) per workout, which gives each muscle group ample attention and allows you to train with higher volume. As you’ll see, chest and triceps are paired up, as are back with biceps and quads with hamstrings, each a very common pairing among novice and advanced bodybuilders. Shoulders are trained more or less on their own, and you’ll alternate hitting calves and abs—which respond well to being trained multiple times per week—every other workout. No new exercises are introduced in Week 4 so that you can focus on intensity in your workouts instead of learning new movements.
