How To Dial In The Crucial Details Of Your Physique!

We are all familiar with exercises for the major muscle groups in our weekly splits. We tend to want to work the most prominent areas of our physiques. But to sculpt your muscles into a work of art, you need to touch up a few other areas that might not seem as spectacular.

The 5 Bad Habits of Weak Lifters | T Nation

But an even better tactic is to study the common habits of unsuccessful performers, then simply do the opposite. Here are the most common habits of weak or struggling lifters. If you see yourself in any of these habits, consider it a blessing, because it means there are things you can do to improve your training.

The chicken-leg elimination workout

If you love the gym, chances are you don't mind squats. But if you're more of the "kinda-workout-to-stay-fit" guy, you probably despise them. Too bad. It's going to be the cornerstone of this routine for one simple reason: it works better than any other exercise. There's really not much to it after that. Just put in the work, and make sure to eat up. Oh, don't forget to work in some stiff-leg deadlifts on back day.

The Cure for Puny Arms | T Nation

The best way to increase the thickness of the triceps is by growing the lateral head. Heavy press lockout variations are key here. The bench press, decline bench press, and overhead press are good choices for working the lockout position. Just set up the safety pins in the power rack so that you only have to press about 8-10 inches in the exercises. The lateral head responds best to heavy loading and these are the exercises that allow you to load the triceps with the most resistance.

The 5 Step Ankle Mobility Fix | T Nation

Think you have problems with ankle mobility? You're not alone. Problem is, this thought has caused a lot of lifters to do some crazy things in order to improve it. But chances are, if your prehab practice hasn't worked by now and you've been doing it for a while, it's probably not going to.

Should Your Workout Kick Your Ass?

Box jumps require a bit of experience and athleticism to do properly, but sprinting up a hill is doable for almost anybody. Find a fairly steep grade and dash up it. Walk back to the bottom and, when you’re ready, charge up the hill again; repeat for about 20 minutes. (You don’t need to go again right away—in fact, this may cause you to break form and get hurt, so don’t.) While running on flat ground can cause pulled hamstrings or hip flexors in beginners, sprinting on an incline slows you down so you don’t put the same pressure on your lower body. You can still work hard and not get hurt. Imagine that.

Now it's time to fire up your buns. Hitting some muscle activation for the glutes is a must if you want to squat without aggravating your knees. Although there are plenty of glute exercises you can do, the ones below are easy and don't require much setup. There's no need to get anal about your reps and sets here. These are just activation drills to help you use your glutes on the bigger lifts. Go by feel, but don't go crazy on them and tire yourself out with 500 reps.

Tip: Rub This On For More Reps | T Nation

The scientists weren't sure how capsaicin affected the lifters like it did, but they had some ideas. They first thought it might have something to do with capsaicin's analgesic effect, thinking that if the exercise didn't hurt, it allowed the lifters to eke out a few more reps. Another theory was that capsaicin stimulated muscle fibers, or that maybe it stimulated the central nervous system.

Taurine is an amino acid that supports neurological development and helps regulate the level of water and mineral salts in the blood. Scientists have discovered that taurine levels in muscle cells are critical for muscle force and strength.* That means keeping muscular taurine levels high during workouts is essential for maintaining strength. Taurine's positive effects on fatigue may be due to its antioxidant properties, which can reduce muscle fatigue during exercise.* In addition, taurine can aid muscle size by drawing more fluid into muscle cells.

Tip: 4 Foam Roller Drills For Heavy Pressers | T Nation

The shoulder is an incredibly mobile and complex joint that needs to work with your scapula and thoracic spine (upper back). For the shoulder to function properly you must have an adequate amount of thoracic mobility. To address your mobility restrictions, begin or end every workout doing some soft tissue work. It'll help loosen restrictive connective tissue and increase blood flow to the areas targeted.

Tip: The Number One Bench Press Mistake | T Nation

Don't let your elbows flare out. The style of benching where you aim to "work the outside of your pecs" is horrific idea if you plan on keeping your shoulders healthy. There are other exercises you could use to help you isolate parts of the chest. So when you bench, think like a powerlifter and tuck your elbows in.

10 ways to build muscle faster

Seeing new and faster gains doesn’t always require getting on a drastically different workout plan or following an ultra-scientific diet. Small changes can add up to major results. Start making the following tweaks and build muscle faster.

Best pre-workout snacks for morning exercise

This combination of complex carbohydrates and protein is a winning pre-workout meal. You have a healthy carb for lasting energy plus a quality protein that supports muscle repair and growth. Salmon contains large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which besides being incredibly healthy, seem to affect metabolism. Omega-3 alters levels of leptin, a hormone that directly influences metabolism and determines whether you burn calories or store them as fat. Consuming fish increases the levels of fat-burning enzymes in your body and decreases the levels of fat-storage enzymes. It's been shown to boost your metabolism by as much as 400 calories per day.

Top 10 natural anabolics for 2017

Anafuse is so potent (and reordered so often) it also made the Top 10 Bulking Supplements List, the only natural anabolic to do so.  But unlike many on that list, Anafuse produces its results without influence on your hormones and with virtually no side effects. Anafuse combines the two most effective natural anabolic ingredients on the market today (Epicatechin & Laxogenin) with the addition of absorption enhancers. The customer feedback and reorder rate on this anabolic has been so stellar that is on pace to become one of the best-selling supplements ever. Certainly worthy of its No.1 position among the Top 10 Natural Anabolic Supplements this year. Read all the reviews here .

The 10 best superfoods for building muscle

Greek Yogurt is like the superman of healthy food. We’ll start with the most obvious reason why: It’s jam-packed with protein (typically around 17g per cup), particularly casein, which is one of the best types for your body to leverage to build muscle. And because of this high protein count (which is practically double that of regular yogurt, by the way), yogurt is a great food to keep you full and avoid unnecessary snacking, says New York-based nutritionist Jessica Cording, RD. Yogurt also provides calcium, noteworthy since research has linked the nutrient to less weight gain. “Plus, the probiotics in yogurt benefit your GI tract health, which has been studied for its potential role in weight management,” Cording adds. Just stick with plain as the flavored varieties are chock full of sugar.

Tip: Pre-Activation Drills for Strong Glutes | T Nation

It's not that one is actually harder, but it's harder for many people to recruit the glutes when doing them. Stick with the "easier" movement until you can really get your glutes firing. For each exercise, the number of reps will be low, just enough to wake things up. Just really emphasize the glute squeeze at the top of each movement.

Tip: Warm Up Fast and Kill It | T Nation

The mobilization will take place after we've already had the chance to increase core temperature via dynamic movement. The purpose of our mobilization isn't to put ourselves in pain. Quite the contrary. We're simply trying to prepare the primary muscle groups that will be directly involved with that day's upper-body workout.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, September 17, 2017

Sunday, September 17, 2017 - You love the idea of expanding your knowledge base and are willing to take a risk in the pursuit of learning. Whether you make a long-term plan to study an intriguing subject or you engage in a dialogue about a topic that is outside your normal interests, you want to dance with the edge and push your boundaries now. You don’t care if your new exploration threatens the foundations of your thinking. You’re driven to transcend your limits in your current search for the truth. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. wrote, “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”

The Art and Science of Dialing In Your Physique

But what does an early-1950s theory have to do with training? For starters, Maslow defined five levels of social need, starting with the base physiological need level, and progressing up with safety, belonging, esteem, and finishing at the top with self-actualization. Each level of the pyramid relies on the base built before it and takes a basic requirement, adds to it to include greater boundaries and obstacles, and then refines it before it reaches the pinnacle. Perhaps training for the perfect physique follows a similar path on your way to dialing up the complete package. There are some basic requirements. There are some basic needs. You have to build layer upon layer to reach the size and shape you want. And then you have to refine all of your hard work to reach the peak.

12 Healthy Fast Food Lunches

Subway has been considered a healthy fast food joint since Jared and the “Subway Diet” gained popularity and headlines. While Subway offers numerous healthy options, many have hidden calories and fat. Take the the 6” Tuna sandwich, which packs 400 calories and 24g fat! A good rule of thumb is to choose from their 6 grams of fat or less menu, which includes the Roast Beef, Club, and Oven-Roasted Chicken Sandwich, all with about 320 calories, 5g fat, and a whopping 23g protein! Pair with a bag of Crunchy Apple Snapz for only 50 calories and an extra 2g fiber.

Wide Grip for Wide Lats

A lat’s function is arm adduction, either from above (for example, lat pulldowns) or in front (rows). Though wide-grip pulldowns are superior, some weightlifters avoid this movement because they’re able to move more weight with a close grip. This isn’t because the lats are working harder; in fact, it’s because the lats are sharing more of the load with other muscles, such as the biceps. In short, if they aren’t already, wide-grip pulldowns should be the foundation of your lat routine.

The Survival Plan: 3 workouts to turn your body into an unbreakable machine

In Day 1, battle ropes test your endurance, burning up your shoulders, arms, and even your lungs. Day 2 you’ll use the sled, a device that’ll put your entire body on blast. Finally, Day 3 is arguably the most gut-wrenching: Front-racked hang cleans to walking lunges and trap-bar deadlifts with farmer walks will expose and strengthen any weak spots. To be ready for anything, you need to take your body to the brink of failure and beyond. With this plan, three days are all you need.

20 Tips to Shed Body Fat for Good

"Caffeine causes the body to rely more on fat for fuel during a workout, rather than glucose," Aceto says. "But the caffeine effect is lessened when you eat a high-carbohydrate meal with it." Drink 1-2 cups of black coffee within two hours of working out, and emphasize healthy fats and protein if you're drinking it with a meal or snack. Skip the cream and sugar (which add unwanted calories and fat), and avoid drinking coffee at other times of the day; doing so can desensitize you to the fat-burning effects of caffeine.

6 Ways to Row Right

The Breakdown: If you are a meathead, all you can in vision is Arnold pulling heavy weight during the classic scene from pumping iron. Arnold used this exercise for a good reason. This exercise, which keeps the weight in a smooth, arced line of pull, forces you to workout hard and hits just about every muscle in the back, making it the perfect-mass builder. This exercise has its advantages over the barbell row because most T-bars offer a variety of options for hand placement. Because you can use both hands, you can load more weight, and that gives the T-bar an edge over other rows.

20 Foods an Athlete Would Never Eat

Top performing athletes know that nutrition is king when it comes to gaining an edge over their competitors. However, no matter what your goal is—carving out your six-pack, increasing your stamina—the gateway to success lies on your plate. An athlete’s diet is more than just calories in and calories out—it’s fuel. The right foods increase your energy, promote muscle growth, and aid in muscle repair. The wrong ones set you back. When it comes to chowing down, there are certain eats a serious athlete just won’t touch.

The 25 worst foods for fat loss

Certain nut butters pack tons of sugar and sometimes even high fructose corn syrup. Make sure to read the label and look for varietes with just nuts (and maybe a bit of oil and salt). Plus, although nuts in general are a healthy snack, they're still fatty and it's key to manage portion size if you're looking to lose weight. “Nuts, nut butters, and avocados are all great stuff, but since these healthy foods are high in fat, the calories add up fast. Remember, 1 gram of fat is 9 calories as compared to 1g of protein or carbohydrate (both 4 calories). Many people I counsel in my office are eating these good/quality foods, but their portions are too large,” says Lemond.
