The 'Beef is Bad' Myth - Busted!

Red meat is high in dietary fats and protein. For a time, science concluded (incorrectly) that heart disease was caused by consuming saturated fats. But that has been debunked. Not only are these fats not harmful, they provide the raw materials for hormones such as testosterone that support building muscle mass. In addition, a 10-ounce serving of beef contains about 60 grams of protein, depending on the cut. Of course, one of the advantages of consuming red meat is that the aminos are released for a long period, slowed by the complex proteins and, particularly, the fats contained in beef.

Gains stalled out? One of these 4 things is the problem: …

H.U.G.E. Gym Class: Power Up

You snort an ammonia capsule, cringing at the synapse stinging; you clap your chalked palms, forming a storm cloud; your buddy swats your back, hard, and again, harder; you shout, loud, and again, louder; you stomp to the bar loaded with more than you’ve ever moved before; and. . . . Almost every bodybuilder has a powerlifting fantasy. After all, most of us don’t want to just look strong. We want it all. That’s why this month’s lesson is all about upping your numbers in the three powerlifts — bench press, squat and deadlift — as we break down the top five power-training blunders.

The Functional Workout Routine

Because here's the reality: While very few of us will get paid to be a musclebound barbarian on camera, almost everyone will face the daily battles against heavy objects—toting carry-on luggage into the overhead bin, hefting a bag of dog food into the truck, or helping your buddy carry that overstuffed recliner up three flights of stairs to his new apartment.

The Workout to Build Muscle With Light Weights

Another option is to do your exercises with one arm or leg at a time, which increases the challenge to your core and balance. You don’t need much weight to make unilateral exercises feel difficult. I’d set up a circuit of lifts that covers all the major movement patterns. That means some variant of the deadlift,  press, row, and squat. Aim for about the same number of reps on each exercise (probably 10–15  if the weights are light), and rest as little as possible between sets.


The formula for losing bodyfat applies to you just as it does to a professional bodybuilder, but the pros take it much further than most typical bodybuilders ever do. To lose bodyfat, take in fewer calories than you burn. If you have more energy going in than out, an energy surplus, you’ll gain weight. If you have more energy going out than in, you have an energy deficit, and you’ll lose weight because you’ll force your body to draw on its energy stores—bodyfat.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, August 12, 2016

Friday, August 12, 2016 - You might consciously decide to maintain a serious attitude today while the Moon is constrained by somber Saturn in your sign. However, you can't seem to make the ripples of excitement disappear as bountiful Jupiter connects with electrifying Uranus. Unfortunately, you may already be overloaded with work and it's not a good idea to voluntarily add anything else to the pile. Nevertheless, you're driven to capture the elusive thrill before the lightning show ends. Staying calm in the midst of a creative storm is your key to receiving the gift of cosmic awareness.

The 15 Best Fat-Burning Foods

Free Newsletters Need help achieving your fitness goals? The Muscle & Fitness newsletter will provide you with the best workouts, meal plans and supplement advice to get there.


Why Is Combo Cardio So Effective? Most of the key benefits of combo cardio have to do with burning stored fat, but it also has muscle-building benefits. First, the high-intensity intervals not only burn calories while you’re doing them, but they also set you up with long-range fat-burning abilities by stimulating a huge EPOC effect. Because high-intensity intervals are hugely anaerobic, your body consumes oxygen—and, therefore, energy—at a much higher rate for many hours after your workout. The research differs and is still ongoing, but the general consensus is that the EPOC effect continues for at least 48 hours and possibly as long as 72 hours after your workout. That means your metabolism works at a much higher rate for as long as three days after your workout.


“Olympic-style lifts often have a lot of stops and adjustments along the way, but essentially you are bringing a bar directly from point A, or near the floor, to point B, toward the ceiling. The trajectory of the barbell should be a relatively straight line—think of it like a flattened S-curve. As the lifter, you’re just maneuvering your body around that bar along its path.”

The 21 Best Bodyweight Exercises to Lose Weight and Burn Fat

You can do a handful (or more if you're feeling intense!) of these moves en masse—and that means revving up your heart rate in quick, efficient workouts. They’re pretty much equipment-free, which means you can do them just about anytime, anywhere. The best part? You can switch these up with almost endless variations, to make sure you’re always challenging your muscles in new ways.

4 Compound Moves for Massive Biceps and Triceps

Barbell curls. Preachers . Extensions. Pressdowns. On arm day, these are a few of our favorite things. But these moves are single-joint moves that isolate your biceps and triceps. Larger muscle groups, such as the chest, back and quads, are usually bombarded with an array of multi-joint moves that allow for more weight before isolation exercises come into play. Is it possible to use that same strategy on your arms? Justin Grinnell, CSCS, owner of State of Fitness, believes it is.

The 3-Day Workout Program for Training Partners

Eric and Ryan Johnson, also known as the " Sons of Strength " on Instagram are brothers—and training partners—that thrive off rivalry in the gym. The following program is a 3-day plan that was designed for training partners—or rivals—depending on how you look at it. And 3 days is the perfect amount of time together—no matter how much you love and or hate each other.

6 Simple Moves to Build a Bigger Chest

Let’s take a look at six easy moves that target one of the most noticeable and the first muscle group to walk into a room—the chest!

The 10 Most Underrated Celeb Physiques Ever

These celebrity physiques have surprised us over the years.

The Get Big Plan

While you can get away with a certain amount of junk food as a hardgainer, specific types of carbs are important for supporting insulin release at the time of day when you want it and others when you don’t. Get 30 to 50 grams of dextrose (or sucrose) immediately after you finish every workout (with the same amount of protein). This will help refeed muscles for much better recovery and growth. At other times of the day emphasize complex carbs such as yams, brown rice, and oatmeal as well as starchy ones such as pasta and bread. You need to get in at least 300g of carbs daily. Target even more until you start adding more body fat than muscle mass.

Six Shocking Approaches to Shoulder Training

It’s ironic that the shoulder joint is capable of such a wide range of motion and, yet, shoulder training almost always focuses on the same few exercises performed in the same fashion and even the same order: overhead presses, side laterals, rear laterals. Bodybuilders often incorporate a variety of machines and exercises into their back training (which also relies on shoulder joints); however, imagination and innovation frequently fail when it comes to deltoids. If you can’t remember the last time your delts were sore after a workout, the following six approaches will re-energize your shoulder training and revitalize your growth.

Muscle-Driving Supplements

Recent research has shown a host of benefits that come with vitamin D supplementation: Two of the most important ones for FLEX readers include increased strength and higher testosterone. Vitamin D is derived from cholesterol (like testosterone) and it readily converts to a hormone (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D) that binds to muscle cell membranes, boosting your muscle cells’ ability to contract and synthesize protein. Those with vitamin D deficiency often suffer health consequences that include lower testosterone levels. Supplementing with the cholecalciferol form of vitamin D may help overcome this condition. - FLEX

7 Winning Strategies for Growth

Backstage after bodybuilding contests, some competitors from second to last have ready excuses for their performances. These range from illness and injury to incompetent judges to “a freak of nature” victor — any of which may or may not be true. Meanwhile, some accept all blame for their fate — whether or not they deserve it — and are already strategizing what they’ll do different next time. Invariably, the latter make the greatest improvements, while those who always have an excuse for losing almost always have cause to use it.You can either be reactive or proactive. When you’re reactive, you blame outside circumstances and other people for obstacles or failures. By inference, there was nothing you could’ve done differently. When you’re proactive, you take responsibility for everything in your life and, because you’ve assumed control, you can anticipate difficulties, then devise a plan and take actions for overcoming any circumstance.

Best Exercises for a Complete Back Workout

The back isn't only one of the body's biggest and strongest bodyparts, it's also the most complicated in terms of being a series of interconnected muscle groups. For the purposes of this feature we're dividing the back into its four main regions: 1) the upper and outer lats, 2) the lower lats, 3) the middle back and 4) the lower back . Each area requires specific stimulation via the exercises and angles of attack used, and we'll show you the two best exercises for each. With this menu, you can customize your own workout by choosing one exercise from each category to create a total program. Or if one region is lagging, you can pick additional movements that hit that area only. Either way, fully understanding which back exercises hit which portions of your back will allow you to build shape (in particular the V-taper ), thickness and width. Note: Many of the exercises we include here do not isolate but rather emphasize certain areas of the back musculature.

How Many Times Per Week Should You Train?

In a University of Rio de Janeiro study, subjects were divided into three groups to train with a different weekly frequency: twice per week (Tues., Thurs.); three times per week (Mon., Wed., Fri.); or four times per week (Tues., Wed., Thurs., Fri.). Each group used the same full-body routine each workout. Strength improvements for bench press, lat pulldown, and leg press were measured at four and eight months.

Black Coffee for Bodybuilders

For years FLEX has recommended that bodybuilders drink plenty of black coffee every day. And we’re happy (and a bit surprised) to welcome the U.S. government aboard now that a dietary panel made a similar recommendation earlier this year: Every healthy adult should drink three to five cups of black coffee per day for optimal health. That’s particularly good news for bodybuilders who are trying to cut body fat while staying energized for intense workouts. Here are five ways black coffee helps support your bodybuilding gains.

Bench Press Seminar 7: Hand Spacing

The wider the grip, the less distance you have to push the bar to complete a bench press. This is why many competitive lifters pick a wide grip for the bench press. But lately, some lifters, including the greatest bench presser of all-time, my client Jeremy Hoornstra, have had greater success with a narrower grip. Lifters that espouse narrow grips say this feels better on their shoulders and gives them better drive off the chest.

10 Training Tips for Gaining Lean Muscle

Hitting the gym twice a week is fine if you want to maintain the muscle you already have, but if you are shooting to add some size you should consider increasing your training frequency to 4-5 times per week. Even though these sessions may need to be a bit shorter to allow for recovery , the increased exposure to a training stimulus can be helpful in packing on mass .


Let's face it, ab training can be boring. The range of motion is short, many exercises are similar, and workouts frequently focus on high-rep, low-intensity sets. B-o-r-i-n-g. What’s more, if the area is sheathed with body fat (or clothes), no one is going to see the results, no matter how many crunches you do. For these reasons, abs are too often neglected—even by professional bodybuilders. We have a solution. In fact, we have 10. When at their peaks, each of the following physique legends—from those who first competed more than five decades ago to those who are still winning today—sported a superb set of rectus abs and obliques. This isn’t exactly an “all-time 10 best” list. A person or two here might surprise you. The following “middle men” were selected not only for their ab excellence but also for the diversity of their routines. Together, they provide 10 waist workout strategies. These range from marathons to sprints and encompass a wide spectrum of set and rep combinations, exercise choices, and workout frequencies. Get ready for some things old and some things new. These 10 legends prove there are many ab-solutions.

Get Ripped on the Beach: Jim White's Ultimate Beach Workout

“Lunges challenge balance and stability throughout the legs and hips as well as core. Squats are going to be hard after this but we want to work all the muscles in the legs and keep the heart rate up! With the lateral lunges you'll be using adductor and abductor muscles most people neglect so stay controlled with these motions and be sure to keep toes straight forward and lunge deep to properly execute this exercise,” says White.
