The Best Comeback from the 90’s – Shawn Ray! | IronMag Bodybuilding Blog

When it comes to Shawn Ray or “Sugar Shawn Ray”, as he calls himself, from time to time can be extremely negative in his approach to bodybuilding at times. But he has always been like that and he is also a realist. The most ironic part is that Shawn Ray would probably be the one of all the 90’s guys who would have made the best comebacks, but it doesn’t seem to be in his interest. The reasons to why I personally believe that he would make a great return is that as of what I know, he never had any serious injuries.

4 Best Exercises for Stronger Hamstrings

The reason many sprinters injure themselves is because of their hamstrings’ poor ability to decelerate the lower leg to stop it from extending. Exercises that focus on the eccentric strength of the hamstrings are a crucial strength tool. The best news is that you can achieve this using bodyweight only. Assume a tall kneeling position, with your heels secured under anything immovable. Without bending forward at the waist, contract your hamstrings and dig in hard with your heels as you slowly let your body descend toward the floor for a 5-8 second negative rep. You should land gently on the ground in a push up position. At this point, push yourself back up to the start position using your hands to help, and repeat. Focus on no more than 6 reps.

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: The Total Back Exercise | T Nation

A lot of people think of this as a hamstring move, but if you're going heavy you'll know the brutalization they cause for the erectors, lats, and entire upper back. This is a total back movement. When your strength on this lift goes up, don't be surprised when your deadlift goes up right along with it.

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: Build Your Back by Stretching Your Pecs | T Nation

In today's world, most people are plagued with iPhone posture. As a result, your pecs are in a chronically shorted position. This makes it difficult to get a full, peak contraction in your upper back. Overactive pecs also create reciprocal inhibition, which de-activates your upper back muscles.

The Top 5 Cardio Mistakes

We have to talk about it. As much as you’d rather discuss bench pressing, biceps or just about anything else, most bodybuilders spend more time on a treadmill or StepMill than a leg press or preacher bench. And when dieting down, most iron men and women invest more hours burning calories than pumping muscles. Still, the majority of trainers haven’t learned how to maximize their stationary strides. This month, we shed the fat and explain how to get your cardio back on track. Class is in session.

Squatting 600 LBS is Easy

WHAT IS PERFECT TECHNIQUE? First, place the bar high on your back, sitting on the mid traps. Grab the bar, wrapping your thumbs around it, while positioning your feet at least shoulder-width apart. If you’re flexible, it’s preferable to keep the feet wider and pointed out slightly. Arch the back and hold air in your abdomen. To lift the bar out, arch your back and push your feet apart while clearing the rack. As you push out with your feet, force your knees apart. Keep your chest high by continuing to arch your back, and push your glutes out until you reach parallel. Next, drive your upper back into the bar. Never push through your feet first as you begin to ascend; this causes one to bend at the waist and goodmorning the bar up as a result. Continue to arch your back and push outward with your feet.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 - All the socializing in the world won’t save you from confronting your own emotions today.

4 Weeks to Massive Muscle Program

You’ll train chest and triceps the day after legs. After hitting the meat of the chest with flat-bench barbell presses, you’ll immediately attack the pecs from the same angle with dumbbells. And similar to how you alternated between squat variations for legs, each time you train chest, perform a different angle (flat-bench in week 1, incline in week 2, decline in week 3 and flat-bench again in week 4) first in the rotation, starting with the barbell version, then following that up with dumbbells. You’ll end chest day with an isolation move (cable flye) to finish things off with an incredible pump before moving on to triceps. Your triceps training will involve bread-and-butter exercises performed in the traditional hypertrophy rep range (8-12) to pack maximum mass onto the upper arms.

How to build muscle and strength without lifting weights

For example, do the body weight squats at a good strong pace, setting your legs up to be explosive for the squat jumps. Fatigue should set in during these jumps, which is, of course, great for muscle building as you move forward with the workout. “Then finally, the iso hold is like the icing on the cake,” Nguyen says. “Because the muscle has nothing left already and I’m still asking it for more. So ultimately, it breaks more muscle cross fibers so that you get growth, and that’s the bulk part of it.”

Tip: A Supplement That Works Without Exercise | T Nation

Most compounds that exhibit a fat burning effect do so by initiating a chemical reaction through receptors ­– a chemical group or molecule that receives signals from other chemicals or other stimuli in general. In most cases, receptors generally get de-sensitized to the original signal. Eventually, the signal either fails to initiate a response, or you need a stronger and stronger signal to get through.

The Arnold Schwarzenegger Era Diet

     For the young people of today, Arnold's impact on bodybuilding is underappreciated. He is thought of by some youths as being ancient history, or an actor who started in bodybuilding. It is important to realize that if he had not achieved a level of unprecedented greatness in his time, the motivation and standards for other competitors would not have been as extreme. He and his contemporaries learned to manage food through observation, trial and error, and communication with their peers. Along with relatively primitive protein powders, they demonstrated that achieving an enviable physique is possible through basic nutrition and discipline. Of course, the muscular strength and mass were augmented by the use of anabolic steroids. However, these gains were possible by sitting down at the table rather than shaking and stirring whey shakes, along with handfuls of capsules. Their diets were low-glycemic load diets, high in protein, and rich in fruits and vegetables. This is a practical approach for natural and enhanced bodybuilders, as well as those wishing to manage their weight for health purposes.

10 Things You Gotta Try at Least Once | T Nation

That's why at least once in a lifter's career, the goal should be to get as absolutely shredded as possible, straight up. Sure, this seems like a superficial goal, but maybe it's not a bad thing. If a superficial mindset allows you to drastically reduce body fat, improve general health (no one likes diabetic ulcerations, trust me, I wrote my dissertation on it) and get you the aesthetic of an athlete, I'm all for it.

90-Degree Biceps Burn

STAGE 3 | Without missing a beat, he begins a third sequence, this time using a full range of motion for another three sets of 10, allowing him to fatigue both the shorter and longer muscle heads. At the top, he holds for a one-second peak contraction, and he applies powerful negative resistance all the way down. “To some, this may sound like an easy workout,” Abbew warns, “but since it’s nonstop and intense, by the time I’m finished, my biceps are completely fried.” Abbew does only one exercise per workout, such as the one-arm dumbbell preacher bench spider curls just described above, but he also understands the value of employing a different exercise every time he trains biceps. Almost always, though, it’s an alternating movement: 10 reps with one arm, then 10 reps with the other, and always nonstop. “I just carry on through,” he says. “By the time I’m finished with one arm, the other arm is ready to go again.” Here are three of his favorites.

If you make eye contact with a girl on the street, you're on a first date, or sitting with a girl you've been dating or married to for years, have you ever wondered what draws (or drew) her to you the most, physically? If you're getting checked out on the subway or train (trust us, you are) is she assessing your shoulders, or pulling a card from your book and checking out how you look in your jeans? What part of the male anatomy does a woman fantasize about the most, or go crazy over when you're face-to-face, chest-to-chest between the sheets? These are all questions we wanted answers to. So we did the obvious thing.

Tip: Master the Behind-the-Neck Push Press | T Nation

I don't recommend any conventional behind the neck press variation, as many lifters don't have the requisite mobility to make this movement's benefits outweigh its disadvantages. However, widening out to a snatch grip and eliminating the need to press only through the arms during the first one-third of the lift can improve the situation.

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.

For me, the risky side of going higher with carbs is that some of the shittier carb sources tend to creep in. I guess for me a shitty carb is one that doesn’t contribute to muscle recovery, energy, or satiety. Any kind of liqueur would fall into the shitty category…I am a fan of coffee liqueur, so these can creep in for me. The other one that creeps in is cereal. Sometimes bread can get a bit out of hand, but that’s why we have Healthy Life bread, which is like eating an airy sponge. 35 calories per slice. Barely enough to be a good vehicle for delivery of peanut butter and honey sandwiches. And finally, protein bars. I don’t care if it’s corn syrup or rice syrup or fructo-fuckto-oligo-sachharide, those carbs add up and if they’re not doing something good or contributing to satiety, they don’t belong. Quest bars make me hungry and beget more quest bars. Not buying bars by the box is an easy tweak that makes a big difference for me.

15 best and worst wireless workout headphones of spring 2017

The quick and dirty: The Urbanears Stadion in-ear Bluetooth headphones give you the ease of going wireless in a unique-looking package. Soft, stretchy coils make up the "wire" connecting the two ear pieces. And while the Stadion may not be the most stylish earbuds around—at least in our opinion—they do solve the problem of having excess wire hitting your neck or having to clip anything in place. The control panel sits at the back of your neck, so switching songs or changing volume is a bit cumbersome, but because it's not at the front, it won't yank the earbuds out. And the buttons are largely defined so you can actually tell what you're pressing. You'll get seven hours of play time on a single charge. And if you like to work out at night, there are reflective details to keep you visible.

Top 5 Hamstring Training Mistakes

Hamstrings are the ultimate bodybuilding bodypart. After all, most every other athlete trains them — if they train them — for injury prevention.

In this article, we help you hammer your hams as we lay bare the top five hamstrings-training blunders. Class is in session.

The infinite shelf life should be your first clue that it’s terrible for you, and has enough sodium to sky-rocket your blood pressure. Most are so processed, nearly all of the nutrients and health benefits have been zapped out.
