The Most Challenging Hamstring Exercise

The seat of a lat pulldown allows you to simulate a glute-ham raise—a popular exercise among athletes and powerlifters and arguably the single best hamstring exercise ever invented. Glute-ham raises work the hamstrings’ two functions: bending your knees and extending your hips, at the same time activating the maximum amount of lower-body muscle mass. Glute-ham raises boost your poundage on the squat and deadlift and help to improve speed and explosivity for sports. The problem is, most gyms don’t have glute-ham-raise benches, and you can bet they’re popular in gyms that do. Making a lat-pulldown station stand in for one is the next best thing.

Artificial Sweetened Foods Promote, Not Hinder Fat(!) Loss. 1.2kg Body Fat in 70 Days By Eating Artificially Sweetened Products. Lower Hunger, Higher Fat Oxidation vs. Sucrose - SuppVersity: Nutrition and Exercise Science for Everyone

There is one impor- tant reason why I still recommend to be careful with any kind of sweetener (inclu- ding stevia) and that's the fact that they won't help people get rid of their extra-sweet tooth. A "tooth" which is in many cases the reason they ran into weight problems in the first place. And a tooth that is rather going to get more, not less sugar hungry if you are adding stevia, sucralose or aspartame to whatever foods you eat. Putting the results into perspective: What this study does confirm is that artificially sweetened products can help average healthy non-dieting, non-overweight individuals lose weight. What it does not confirm is that artificially sweetened products will help obese people lose weight or ward off further weight gain in an ad libitum diet scenario such as the one at hand. If we go one step further and extend our skepticism from a potential subject- to a potential duration-specific effect, we still don't know if the chronic consumption of artificially sweetened products wouldn't have negative effects on what some people call the "energy intake gauge".

The Science Behind Quenching Your Thirst

According to the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research , for every 1% body mass you lose through sweat, your heart rate ticks up three beats a minute, which means it has to work harder. Not good. On the flip side, “ staying hydrated helps hold in more water, so your heart has to work less to pump the blood to muscles,” says study author William Adams, M.S., A.T.C., so “keeping your heart rate low allows you to exercise with a higher intensity.” 10 Foods to Keep You Full Until 5:00 PM >>>

Kick-Start Your Metabolism: Part 1

In order to lose weight and put on lean muscle, the formula is pretty basic: Follow a healthy and balanced low-fat diet, rid your program of processed foods and preservatives, control your portions, and adhere to a solid workout program that includes both resistance and cardiovascular training. It sounds uncomplicated, and in most cases it is—as long as you stick to the program you’ll receive the desired results you’re looking to achieve. However, what do you do when your body and metabolism have had enough and your system shuts down, and no matter what diet you follow, no matter how long and hard you train—you simply can’t lose weight and all progress has halted? Whether you’re a serious athlete who has come off a long, intense preparation, an athlete who had to go into “system shock mode” and basically starve yourself to achieve your results, or if you’re an individual who has gone from one extreme to the other with your body and are experiencing a sluggish or what seems like a nonexistent metabolism—you can get back on track. In this article, I’ll lay out the necessary steps to recharge your metabolism to have it running more efficiently than ever.

Eating Yourself STRONG - Zach Even-Esh

Thank you for the help! I’ve always been a student, and had time to train, specially because I could arrange my schedule and train whenever I want because I always had 10 minutes to do some squats, rows and pushups, but now that I’ll be working somewhere else, suited up and with more people… I don’t wannna be one of those that stop taking care of themselves and being strong, I want to be and live strong and train until the day I die.

Andy Warhol's Interview Interview: The Rock

ABOVE: DWAYNE JOHNSON, AKA "THE ROCK." PHOTO COURTESY OF DWAYNE JOHNSON Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? It's just egg whites, because Hollywood's charismatic He-Man—and star of the new mega-movie Hercules —likes to keep it healthy. As the former WWE star and member of the 1991 University of Miami National Championship team explains to Andy, he hasn't always had it so good. So now he's just living the dream. ANDY WARHOL: What did you eat for breakfast? THE ROCK: My typical breakfast: Seven oz. filet, two whole eggs, four oz. of plain oatmeal, two English muffins, one-half cup of blueberries. WARHOL: What's the craziest thing a fan has sent you? THE ROCK: Fans send me pictures of tattoos that they've gotten—of my face, a quote I've said, or of my Polynesian tattoo. It's all love—crazy love—but it's still love and I'll take it. WARHOL: Is there anything you regret not doing? THE ROCK: I regret not listening to my gut sooner. It happens to all of us, where our gut, God, or the universe is screaming at us, but we're so attached to a certain outcome that we miss that window to take action.

Shannon Briggs Attacks Wladimir Klitschko

Klitschko holds the IBF, WBO, WBA Super and IBO title belts, and he regularly sells out packed stadiums in Germany, but interest in him stateside is so-so given the conservative nature of his boxing style. You can be the judge whether there is a real beef between these guys or if it is a ploy to drum up some interest in a potential Klitschko/Briggs fight, but they always seem to have the camera on at just the right moment…

Healthy Tip of the Day

Get a doctor that meets your personal needs and understands the difference between treating an illness and helping and guiding you through the wellness process. You need to find a doctor who will be interested in the steps you’ve taken to prepare for an exam, rather than simply treat a respiratory infection or draw blood for an annual checkup.
