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.

The Top 30 Muscle-Building Foods

Fermented dairy products like kefir are a little-known magic bullet for muscle building. Kefir is the perfect addition to any muscle-building blender bomb, providing distinct nutritional advantages over water or regular milk. If you usually use water in your shakes, 1 cup of kefir will add 150 calories to your diet. Compared to regular milk, kefir will allow your meal to be more easily digested due to the presence of probiotics (up to 10 billion good bacteria per cup). These healthy bacteria will help keep your digestive track running at peak condition so it can break down and assimilate a maximum amount of calories and nutrients from your meals.

H2O for the Bodybuilder

As an athlete or a healthy person—you know soda is not the best choice for a beverage, but drinking plain water sometimes seems more like a chore rather than the right thing to do for your body. More and more people today are “hooked” on diet sodas and carbonated beverages than ever before. Bodybuilders on a contest diet like to drink it, as the carbonation keeps them full and they like the taste better than plain water. It also feels like a treat to have a diet soda in a world of plain, unseasoned contest foods. But not only can diet sodas hinder weight loss and upset your digestive process, they can also prevent your body from ridding itself of excess water. The hardest part of getting on the “drink water” bandwagon is getting of the soda roller coaster. Rather than going cold turkey and moving straight to plain water, I have a plan that I use with many athletes and clients that either have difculty getting enough fluids in or for those trying to kick the habit of carbonated drinks and sodas. If you are used to drinking diet soda and carbonated beverages, the easiest way I’ve found to kick the habit is to wean down.

How to Hit Those Stubborn Outer Calves

Bodybuilding requires full development of each muscle group. For lower legs, that means equal development of the gastrocnemius, or calf. The gastrocnemius has two heads, the medial (inner) head and the lateral (outer) head. For many, the real challenge is the outer head. Research done at Armstrong Atlantic State University has shown that turning your toes inward when doing standing calf raises shifts the emphasis to the outer head. Yes, it sounds a little confusing, but it’s the way to go for outer calves. Also, seated calf raises place greater emphasis on the soleus, which lies underneath the gastrocnemius.

50 Ways to Become a Better Man

5) Do the Twist When you perform dumbbell bench presses, rotate your wrists outward as you push the weights up. Your pinkies will face each other at the top. According to national-level bodybuilder and trainer John Meadows, you’ll feel a greater contraction in your pecs.

8 Great Foods to Eat Before and After Your Workout

Before you hit the ground running, fueling your body will be the foundation to any successful workout. It’s any lifter’s worst session when they hit the wall – glycogen stores depleted and muscles starved for nutrients. To be on top of your lifting game, you have to feed your body with the right foods both pre – and post-workout.

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.

5 Moves for Bigger, Stronger Calves

Machine training is great for calf work because it allows you to isolate the muscle and train it as hard and heavy as you want, but what about adding a little athleticism to the mix? If you’re bored with banging out set after set of machine raises, there are myriad other ways to give your calves their due, most of which offer exponentially more benefit than standard gym exercises in terms of improving your overall athletic ability and mobility while adding all the mass and definition you want. Read on to see the moves.

5 Muscle-Building, Fat-Burning Stir-Fry Recipes

It's nearly impossible to screw up a stir-fry: You throw some veggies, a protein, and a grain like rice or noodles in a hot pan, then move them around with a flavoring agent until they’re cooked through. The ease alone makes the stir-fry a no-brainer if you're not keen to cook in the kitchen or you don't have a lot of time. But best of all, stir-frying can be really healthy.

The 20 Dumbest Things Ever Said by Bodybuilders

Oh, boy! We’ve all done this at some point, myself included. But thankfully I know better now. As much as it would be nice to work my lower biceps or lengthen my biceps, preacher curls do not do this, and neither do any other exercises. They may overload the lower portion of the strength curve, thereby making you stronger in that part of the range, giving you the misperception that you’re lengthening your biceps. In reality, you’re just getting overall thickness in your biceps.

The Fittest NHL Players of 2016-2017

The 5’11”, 186-pound winger is one of the fastest skaters in the league—he won the fastest skater competition at the 2012 All-Star game. In 2014 his speed was clocked at 23.053 mph, the fastest in the NHL. That speed allows the long-haired Swedish star to dart past bigger defenders, and his agility allows him to get into scoring position on offense. Hagelin is coming off of a Stanley Cup win with the Penguins, helping the team win a title after being traded to Pittsburgh during the 2015-16 season.
