7 Pros, One Controversial Question | T Nation

As a father or two young children, I wouldn't be in favor of them competing in physique competitions, or any other competitions for that matter. While physique is one hell of an emotional, physiological, physical, and psychological risk for highly plastic brains and bodies for a magnitude of reasons, I believe kids should be kids and not be lead into highly competitive activities or sports just to keep up with the Jones's.

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet | T Nation

Take for instance fish oil. If you ask 100 cardiologists about heart disease, the only thing 99 of them will agree on is that fish oil's anti-inflammatory effect is a powerful tool in preventing heart attacks. Often, when blood vessels are besieged by low-density lipoprotein (a type of cholesterol), there's an inflammatory response where white blood cells rush to the area.

Build a Fighting Physique Like Conor McGregor

Before McGregor painted the UFC crowds with the tricolor of the Emerald Isle, he was a working-class kid from a Dublin suburb. His fighting journey began when he was a fresh-faced, 12-year-old boy who stepped into Crumlin Boxing Club—a gym with a history dating back to the 1930s. He honed his craft at the SBG Ireland under the tutelage of head coach John Kavanagh, who's been a vital cog in the McGregor machine.

This means you are getting an ultra-pure, rapidly absorbed and quickly digested protein that allows you to recover faster, build more lean muscle mass and get better results from your training sessions! What’s more, whey peptides have one of the highest biological values (BV) of any protein source, a value given to protein sources to measure how well they are absorbed and used by the body.

The Making of The 21-Day Shred and the Shred Series

I was 130-pounds when I graduated from high school. I was skinny—and I hated it. I would eat and lift, eat and lift, eat and lift until eventually I started gaining size. It took a while—years actually. I spent hours and hours reading about nutrition and different training programs. I tried everything in the gym. You name it, I tried it. Things started to click the more I stuck with it. The programming that I started doing was working, and the way I was eating helped me build muscle while staying incredibly lean at the same time. The more I grew, the more motivated and inspired I became. The 21-Day Shred and the SHRED SERIES are a product of those years of experimentation. The reading, the research, and the guessing and testing has already been done for you. All you need to do is deliver on the work.

5 Rules for Building Bigger Triceps

The man who wants  bigger triceps  cannot live on pressdowns alone. Too often, we see guys in the gym—and maybe you're one of them—working his triceps to death at the cable pressdown station. Ten sets, 15 sets... whatever it takes to get them sore. But what the pressdown-happy masses don't seem to realize is that this exercise emphasizes the lateral (outer) head of the triceps. So if that's all you do, the other two heads of your tri's are going to be underdeveloped and you'll never get the kind of growth you're hoping for.

Tip: Do Rack Pull-Ups for Bigger Lats | T Nation

With rack pull-ups, the legs are in front of the torso, allowing you to actually get the lats into a fully lengthened position. The two things we really want to take advantage of to maximize growth is to fully lengthen and shorten the muscles being worked. At the bottom of the rack pull-up, you can actually round the back and fully stretch the lats out.

White Rice vs. Brown Rice

Rice is a classic bodybuilding food, but white and brown rice have different benefits. Both are great sources of carbs, but white rice causes more of an insulin spike due to its very low fiber and fat content. Brown rice also increases insulin release, but the fiber and fats help reduce this. Therefore, at times of the day when you aren’t training, the carbs from brown rice are much less likely to go to body-fat storage than those from white rice.

IFBB Pro Amit Sapir - Q&A

this is a really difficult question to answer because i got into powerlifting with a very strong base of olympic lifting and already had a lot of muscle. Yes I got a lot more neuro-efficient and added a lot more weight to my squat since switching to low bar and utilizing more traditional lower volume powerlifting style training. In theory for pure strength it's more efficient but I honestly think that without the olympic and hypertrophy base, I wouldn't be as strong as I am today. I see it in a lot of powerlifters that only do power in their career - they are extremely neuro efficient but they are lacking muscle to actually move the big weights. In a lot of ways, I think the journey my career took was ideal for what i do today - started with learning perfect technique with high volume (usually twice daily squat) for 5-6 years, then switched to body building which helped me build a lot of muscle and an overall balanced, no weakness base, and then switched to powerlifting and all I had to do was teach the body to absorb heavy weight and remind my cns how to be efficient again as it was in my olympic days, just with a lot more weight.

This Workout from The 21-Day Bulk Will Force Your Back to Grow

Want to know what's so great about The 21-Day Bulk ? You can slow things down a little bit and chill out. Key words: A little bit . The 21-Day Bulk is focused on getting you that extra size you're looking for while still shredding fat. All of the workouts are solely focused on hypertrophy, or muscle-growth, and less focused on burning the maximum amount of calories. Your repetitions will be in the 10-12 range with about a minute and half of rest—a nice combination for taxing the muscles while still allowing for enough recovery. It's also suggested that you apply drop sets and rest pauses in the programming of The Bulk. Learn about drop sets and rest pauses here.

Get Your Girl To Lift - Biotest

It's hard for a lot of us to fathom: Women who avoid weights because they don't want to get "bulky." With so much information available about the importance of muscle, and the internet rampant with female lifters, it's weird. But you'll still come across comments from women who favor yoga, spin class, long distance running, or treadmill walking for hours on end over lifting... which would be fine if that's their personal preference, but there's a problem here.

Do This, Not That: 6 Better Muscle-Building Moves

Do This - Everyone loves the barbell bench press but it’s less utilized cousin, the dumbbell bench press is a great chest developer that also trains shoulder stability. You can also change hand positions very easily with dumbbells (for example, going with a neutral grip with palms facing each other) in a way you just can’t do with a bar, giving you a lot more variety. And given that you don’t have a bar to touch your chest, you can get a bit more range of motion out of the dumbbell variation.

12 Signs You're Overtraining

It’s normal to have sore muscles for a day or two after a workout. But if you’re still sore past the 72-hour mark, be sure to schedule a break and rest. This type of extended soreness is a sign your muscles aren’t recovering, which negatively impacts on your muscle-building efforts. “You should be able to get in a gym session—in and out—in 45 to 75 minutes max," says Muscle Model champion and transformation trainer Micah LaCerte .
