Can You Build Muscle In Your 40s (And Older)? 25 Tips from Experience, The Classic & Golden Era of Bodybuilding • Zach Even-Esh

Amino Pro by Dymatize at - Best Prices on Amino Pro - Caffeine Free!

At 2.5g of BCAA, it may be a little on the low side, but i've also seen/bought much lower dosed BCAAs that this, so it isnt bad either. It also provides 212 mg of electrolytes to help keep you hydrated during the grueling workout session, which is a huge plus, electrolytes during a workout are a lifesaver! The additional 2g of taurine is also very nice as it provides a good strength and endurance boost. Then there is the L-citruline which helps to provide blood flow to your muscles and tissues, which is a fancy way of saying it gives you a nice decent pump. Flavor wise, the lemon lime was a little on the weak side. When mixed in the recommended amount of water (8-12 oz) it had a very nice flavor, sort of like the lemon lime Powerade, which is why i wanted to try it in the first place....I LOVE lemon lime powerade! But when i mix my BCAA's i usually like to mix up a full shaker cup and sip on it, rather than sip on water. When i mixed one scoop into a full shaker, it was pretty weak, but theres an easy solution...Mix in 2 scoops! That way you get the full flavor experience, AND you get the full 5g dose of BCAA's! Overall, the flavor is nice and refreshing, although maybe a little on the weak side.

CLA | RSP Nutrition

I can't begin to tell you all the reviews I read before purchasing QuadraLean, CLA, L-Carnitine, and Green Tea Extract, which I have now been taking over three months. There were so many positive reviews how could I not purchase these supplements?? I workout 5 days a week and I eat healthy, too. I was hoping to shed about 15lbs with the help of all these supplements but I did not lose ONE pound. No, I would not recommend these supplements for weight loss. I could not resist the positive reviews and lets face it these supplements are CHEAP. Sadly, after taking probably close to 700 pills the past 3 months I saw no results. Extremely disappointed to say the least.

10 Amazing Facts About Testosterone | T Nation

A student at Georgia State University named Jonathan Bassett had read implications in the scientific literature that females with higher testosterone levels gave birth to more boys than girls. While this doesn't make much sense off-hand, high levels of testosterone in fertile females might affect the viability of male and female zygotes after conception.

7 Dumb Things Lifters Argue About | T Nation

Lifting 3-4 days a week (and training each muscle 2-3 times per week) works best for the vast majority of lifters. If time and energy are super-tight, 2 days a week is almost as good. If you can afford to live at the gym and don't have any type of a real life, 5-6 days might be slightly better than 3 or 4 days.

Tip: This Type of Exerciser Earns More Money | T Nation

But it could also be a chicken-and-egg issue. And correlation doesn't imply causation. Maybe goal-oriented, responsible, harder-working people are more drawn to the gym to begin with. Exercise didn't cause them to earn more money, but those who are driven to earn more just happen to also want to take care of themselves more and push themselves harder.

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.

Develop the Ultimate Overhead Press | T Nation

Consider that the humeral head is classified into three types: Type A (smooth), Type B (curved), and Type C (hooked). Your type determines which press you'll be capable of doing correctly. We don't need to get into how to classify yourself, but suffice it to say, performing an overhead variation for eight weeks that causes you to get injured doesn't really help.

20 Max Muscle Leg Blast | Exercises for Bigger Wheels

Guy has the rare look of quads that hang over the kneecaps, which is what made the quads of men like Tom Platz and Paul “Quadzilla” DeMayo so impressive. While Guy freely concedes that he was gifted with some extraordinary genetics for the entire lower body, he still feels most bodybuilders fall far short of their full leg development potential because they don’t train legs like a bodybuilder should. “Too many bodybuilders try to be powerlifters, and lift way too much weight with absolutely shitty form,” he declares. “I see it every day in the gym, guys doing half-reps, or using momentum to move the weight rather than their muscles. If they understood that judges don’t give a shit how much they lift and understand that they are judged on their physiques rather than the weight they use in the gym, they would have much more developed legs.” Did you all hear and understand that? I sure hope so, because I absolutely agree with Guy that this is what is keeping most bodybuilders from ever having great legs.

Tip: Get Your Fat Intake Down To A Science | T Nation

I take my dose all at once because fats are much less sensitive to exercise timing. Regarding type, so many fats in a typical diet are already omega-6 (which we seriously over-consume and are a substrate for inflammation) and omega-9 (like the aforementioned MUFA). Remember, when we take a dose of omega-3 fats, we don't typically think of them as a portion of daily calories, which would be miniscule (2 g x 9 kcal per gram = just 18 kcal).

Hot Debate: Which Squat is Best? | T Nation

The powerlifting squat (hip squat/bent over squat/low bar squat) is a more hip dominant squat that reduces quadriceps stimulation. Why? As mentioned, the muscle being stretched the most will be the muscle being recruited the most. In a powerlifting squat the hips move a lot further back, the knees don't travel far forward (the tibias stay almost perpendicular to the floor) and there's less flexion at the knees.

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: 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.

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.

Oakland Raiders - The Autumn Wind

The Autumn Wind courtesy of The Complete History of the Oakland Raiders DVD


Ok, now that we have that straight, this is how I handle my squat AMRAP. I start by breaking the set down in my head. The first goal is to hit ten and then treat each rep thereafter as a single. Usually, by around rep 13 I start telling myself this is stupid and I want to quit. Then I convince myself I'm being a complete wuss and push through. At 15 I'm completely out of breath and seeing stars. This week, after the 16th, I just had to go for 17. With little left to spare, I ground it out.

5 Lies About Lifting Weights | T Nation

For these athletes, the conventional barbell deadlift, squat, and bench press aren't simply exercises; they're tools in a box that also contains many other tools to help them achieve their goals. To powerlifters, however, the conventional deadlift, squat, and bench press aren't tools – they're events. It's disappointing that this difference goes unacknowledged by so many coaches, trainers, and gym goers. As a result, they fail to apply the principle of specificity.

Rebuild Yourself with Complexes - Biotest

I like sets of three for adding mass to my young athletes. The more time under the bar, the more the body adapts by getting bigger. Moreover, it seems to also be most helpful on the playing field. When you watch a sophomore boy handle Complex A with 155 for three complexes of three reps each, you have to realize that this is a very strong human being, even if he's just 15.

The 11 Best Books for Smart Meatheads | T Nation

Mentzer attributed much of his success to his unusual training methodology that took Arthur Jones's theories multiple steps further by reducing training volume and frequency to inordinately low levels. For instance, Mentzer was known for having many of his advanced bodybuilders train only once every 4-7 days with only 1 max effort set to failure on a handful of exercises. Additionally, Mentzer was known for asserting his beliefs that the traditional volume approach that many bodybuilders were (and still are) using, contributed to more failed physiques and training stagnation than any training methodology in existence.

For example, the vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) of the quad can be strengthened with step-ups and split squats.
