bald-bodybuidler

by Mike Arnold

When it comes to the subject of hair loss, you will find strong opinions on both sides of the fence. For some, it is simply a natural part of life; not something to be feared or despised. Being met with acceptance, these individuals fret little over the state of their hairline, opting to take a razor to their heads rather than invest in potentially costly treatments designed to spare this cranial covering. For others, hair loss can have a profound impact on the emotional well being of the individual, causing anxiety and negatively affecting one’s self-perception and quality of life.

cardio-bodybuilder

by Charles Poliquin

“Cardio makes you fat.” This is a common belief in the hardcore training world, but the truth is that it is all in your definition of “cardio.” Fat loss is easy if you know how your body uses energy and how to exploit it: Enter intervals.
Interval training is a powerful tool that gives you back considerably more in terms of fat loss than the effort required.

Steady-state cardio on the other hand is unlikely to give you good results unless you become a cardio junkie, continually increasing your distance, increasing your intensity, or decreasing the amount of food you eat—all options that are way more trouble than they’re worth.

Kevin-Levrone-triceps

by Keith Alpert

As a Strength Coach and a Personal Trainer for 15 years, I’ve had a chance to see many fitness enthusiasts workout at many gyms in my local area and throughout the country. At any given gym or fitness center, the one thing that I notice is how you see the same people doing the same workouts month after month, year after year. The amazing thing is that these people continue to look the same or they are actually looking worse aesthetically. This is especially true with the constant performance of continuous aerobic work.

uppre-back-bodybuilder

Virtually every gym in the country has a machine for lat pulldowns. They are among the most widely performed upper body exercises in commercial gyms. Even Arnold does them. Even so, lat pulldowns are not particularly effective for developing the upper body.

Lat pulldowns do have some value; for those who have upper body injuries or are in the beginning stages of shoulder rehabilitation, lat pulldowns are a better choice than, let’s say, chin-ups.

bodybuilder-whey-protein

by Josh Hodnik

Not many supplements have had a bigger impact on the sports nutrition industry over the past few decades than whey protein. Until the early 90s, the only powdered protein available was in the form of soy, egg, or milk. These protein powders from decades ago tasted horrible, clumped when mixed, and digested poorly. When whey protein was first introduced as a sports supplement, it was praised for it’s high absorption rate, solubility, and superior taste. Finally, a protein powder was available that allowed bodybuilders to consume higher levels of protein that contained high levels of BCAAs, without having to consume it all in the form of whole foods.

jay-cutler

by Mike Arnold

In today’s world of bodybuilding it is not uncommon to hear of some individuals using doses which, 20 years ago, would never even have been contemplated by the typical professional BB’r. In fact, things have progressed so far that cycles which were once reserved for only the most daring of competitors are now being employed by low-level amateur BB’rs the world over. As a whole, the BB’ing community has been conditioned to accept these doses as a prerequisite for success. With 3-4 gram cycles now considered a minimalistic approach by many, one must wonder at what point a further increase in dose becomes futile, or possibly even counterproductive.

super-foods

Ever think there must be a better way to fix your body? A surefire way to lose body fat?
The perfect method of feeling inspired every time you train?The big fat truth is that stress is a huge daily reality that’s keeping you from reaching your potential.

Did you know that people who cope with stress by consuming “comfort foods” rich in fat and sugar gain weight, and that the amount of weight gained is greater than the amount expected based on the calories consumed?

Hypertrophy Cluster Sets

This post is the second in a series introducing you to under-utilized, advanced training techniques. As I explained in my last post on constant tension timed sets, the key to steady growth without plateaus is to force your neuromuscular system to adapt to a continuously changing set of stimuli.

These training techniques that I’m talking about this month are not unheard of and were not created by me, but they’re generally only used and understood by more advanced bodybuilders and their coaches. These are all techniques that Ryan and I only use with our personal one-on-one clients, because they do require precision, oversight and careful monitoring in order to work safely and reap the best results.

testosterone

by Josh Hodnik

Pharmaceutical companies in the United States have paid out billions in settlements due to class action lawsuits, close to 20 billion to be exact. From 2001-2010 pharmaceutical companies accounted for 25 percent of all federal class action settlements, and over half of these settlements were due to drug safety issues. Class action lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies are on the rise. Over the past 20 years, pharmaceutical companies have settled more than 165 cases. Of those, 75 percent were settled between 2006 and 2010.

Talk may be cheap, but there’s nothing cheap about the talk if it’s fact…and fact is, when Ronnie Coleman stated “I’d have destroyed Phil( Heath) in my day,” that’s a fact plain and simple. When Ronnie was in his prime, it was Ronnie and then the rest of us, period. It’s very easy for a magazine to publish a photo of Ronnie Coleman and Phil Heath next to each other for a comparison shot using a pose giving fans the impression Phil’s some how on the same playing field as Coleman in his prime.
