The Best Damn Strength Plan For Natural Lifters | T Nation

When calculating the load on the chin-up you must include bodyweight in the calculation. If you weigh 200 pounds and your maximum is the addition of 45 pounds, the weight lifted is 245 pounds. If you need to use 82.5% it means 202 pounds, so you'd need to attach a 2.5-pound plate to your waist. If you don't include your bodyweight you'd calculate 82.5% of 45 pounds and it would come up to 37 pounds, which would be way too heavy for the prescribed volume.

Tip: Use This for Perfect Squat Depth | T Nation

ATG squatters, of course, are the exception; the backs of their calves tell them they've done an honest rep. The rest of us, though, should use the damn safety pins or bars to give us something to "aim" for. While most people use the pins, if they use them at all, it's to prevent a really heavy weight from folding them in half and making them look like an open-faced tuna melt sandwich.

Tip: 3 Unexpected Ways to Get Lean - Biotest

How often do you actually connect with your food and eat with awareness? Traditionally, people used to say grace before eating, and similarly other religions would have their own ritual before meals. Regardless of your beliefs, there are advantages to being thankful for your food. It helps you become present and mindful before you take your first bite.

Tip: Fat Facts For Lifters | T Nation

It's hard to give a recommended amount because everyone has individual needs, but as a baseline, start with about 40 grams of fat per day from various sources. Of course, if you're doing a keto diet (no carbs) then that number would have to be higher, and if your diet is very high in carbs, consider lowering it.

Syntha-6 Protein Powder | BSN

I love Syntha 6 and have been using it for 2 years on and off now. When taking right I can feel and see the difference. Nothing beats the taste of it too. By taking it right, that means using it twice per day. I've been stacking it with KM isolate in the morning. So immediately after working out, I take km isolate, then I wait 15-30 minutes and take Syntha. It gives me the all day amino coverage that I love. Plus the tastes are amazing. I then take a scoop of Syntha at night before bed. Chocolate cake batter is their best flavor. The birthday cake Remix is amazing too, but it's not as thick and they put too many sprinkles in it. They just sink to the bottom so you get a ton of sprinkles in your last sip. Chocolate milkshake is good but if your a chocolate fan, chocolate cake batted is 10x better. Love this stuff!

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.

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.

Leg Day in the Smith Machine | T Nation

Do 2 sets of 10 reps, and use 5 second eccentrics (lower slowly). For this exercise the Smith machine is actually superior to the barbell because you can sit back further since the machine holds you in place. This allows you to get a much deeper stretch in the hamstrings, and a more lengthened muscle is going to receive more of that delicious time under tension.

Tip: Do These Drills Before Leg Day | T Nation

This is a good introduction to how to move while in the deep squat, and it's spectacular for stretching the low back, firing up the scaps, and improving body awareness. To get more from the exercise, focus just as much on protracting and retracting your shoulder blades as you do on rounding and arching your lower back. Also, don't be afraid to bring the knees in during the camel (round) and push them out on the cat (arch) to really warm up the hip sockets.

Tip: The Case for Full-Fat Dairy | T Nation

So, for those of you busting your ass to gain some size, why in the world would you choose low-fat or fat-free dairy options? You're trying to sneak calories into your diet, not out of it! Full-fat versions, especially from grass-fed cows, are vastly superior for health and for growth.

Tip: Lifters Need More of This Drug | T Nation

But some new research just published in The Lancet has caused me, and possibly all aspirin advocates, to adjust our recommendations. It seems, quite logically, that it all comes down to dosage. Bodybuilders and lifters, in general, are big SOBs so they probably need bigger doses. Conversely, wee little people need less of the drug to fully and safely enjoy its benefits.

The Aggressive Diet for Natural Guys | T Nation

This diet plan allows for a reduction in your carb intake without the negative affect of a hormonal imbalance. Carbohydrates and dietary fats are the two key macros for healthy testosterone levels, which are necessary for optimal fat burning and muscle building processes.

Back Is The New Glutes | T Nation

Standard seated pulldowns are fine, but if you have access to an iso-lateral pulldown machine that allows you to turn the handles, use it. What's the advantage? Aside from being able to train one arm at a time, you can adjust your technique and grip easily mid-set if you're not feeling the tension in the right place. In fact, you'll notice in the video that I twist the handles from a pronated grip to a supinated one.

Tip: A Cheap Way to Improve Your Diet | T Nation

Why frozen? It's as good as fresh, they come in a variety of blends and can be flavored to suit your tastes, plus they require just a few minutes in the microwave or on the stove. Portion sizes be damned, just remove and prepare as much or little as you like when you eat a meal. (Eating large portions early in the week simply leaves less to consume later and vice-versa.) The bags typically cost just two bucks.

Should You Go Keto? | T Nation

I'll play devil's advocate and mention that on a keto diet you'll eventually increase intramuscular fatty acid storage, which can have a positive impact on fullness, but can't completely compensate for the glycogen depletion. In Quebec, low-carb dieting among coaches is still popular (probably one of the last places on earth where some bodybuilders use low-carb diets). We see a common denominator – physiques that look hard, but are super flat.

Tip: Weed and the Munchies | T Nation

Who's right? Well, until recently, the "munchies" wasn't a scientifically proven phenomenon, but weed can lower your inhibitions. And it definitely enhances the smell of delicious foods (journal Nature Neuroscience). Now, some newer studies are pointing to the exact mechanisms.

Tip: Restore Mobility Through Your T-Spine | T Nation

Your thoracic spine sits between the cervical vertebrae in your neck and the lumbar vertebrae in your lower back. A healthy T-spine should be able to move forward, backward, and side to side, as well as rotate. This is not only important for everyday function, it's also vital for people who like to push their limits in the gym.

45 Never Skip Leg Day: Five Tips For Building Leaner, Stronger Legs

Training-wise, leaner legs will come from a German Body Composition-type workout that uses both upper and lower body exercises with short rest and high volume. The goal is to produce significant peripheral lactic acid buildup, which will cause a lot of growth hormone to be released for greater fat burning.

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: Train With Arnold's Golden Six | T Nation

Some common, but short-sighted, hesitations often include: Why no deadlift or rows? Where are the lateral raises and triceps work? Is this why Arnold took forever to build calves? Well, squatting for hard sets of 10 three days a week doesn't leave much room for getting beaten up by deadlifts or being impaired by sore calves. Building your base with chin-ups is absolutely as effective as rowing, and the bench and overhead press will thoroughly hit your triceps and shoulders.
