Triple-Action Fat Burning Machine, Totally Portable, Only Better

I guess there will always be a debate over the quickest way to burn off bodyfat. I mean it’s not enough when a nutrition plan, exercise program, gadget, or even a supplement has been shown to help take off the fat––it’s never fast enough. And when a method has been proven to work, it’s supposedly…

Beyond Built; Arms That Look Impressive Standing Still

    One of the hallmarks of an experienced Physique Athlete is they look great standing still. That’s part of the grand plan; visually arresting in real life, not just if you hit a pose. When your relaxed arms are viewed from the side, (short sleeves or shirtless), this area is the centerpiece of your “still…

It IS About Hormones, But Not hCG, For Losing Stubborn Bodyfat That Is

  Another day, another miracle diet, another hoax. These mythical Unicorns don’t fool those of you who’ve found the “secret” to improving your body-composition is really no secret at all. You’re part of the few that have come to realize that weight-training, cardio, nutrition and smart supplementation, as practiced by Physique Athletes, is the fastest…

Modified Circuit Training, Cleansing Your Metabolism––Really

The big trend these days is the sale of “Body Cleansing” products and modified fasting programs that claim to to increase your metabolism. I’ve seen these types of programs emerge again about every ten-years. In fact, as a teen in the late ‘70’s, when I was just beginning to explore health food stores, I even…

Look Different, Your Body That Is

                    I believe the best compliment a fitness minded person can get is; Wow, you look great, what do you do? While it’s true that we live in a world of, “different strokes, for different folks”, I’d bet that adding some lean muscle (without more bodyfat)…

Make a Move, Hit The Exit When Muscle Energy Falls

  In the early years of my training, I kept great records in journals. My notes included nutrition, cardio, supplements and of course every weight training detail. What I learned was that each muscle group had a decent range of energy substrates they could store, which was dependent on my current nutrient intake and training…

Pull Out The “High Lats”, Create Better Abdominals

  A common misconception among physique athletes is that for wide lats, you need to focus on rowing/pulling movements with a wide grip, and your back arched. Sounds logical, but in fact a close grip with your chest concave, chin towards chest, like diving in a pool, works best to pull out the teres major…

Have A Heart, Save Your Shoulders

  Your shoulder muscles and its intricate joint structure bear the brunt of almost every upper-body weight training exercise. That’s why smart physique enthusiasts are careful to give the area adequate rest, and work a variety of bodypart splits that allow the shoulders to be developed, not overtrained or injured. Even with lots of planning,…

The Almighty PUMP, Water Works

      If you’re looking to build your body these days, you’d have to be under a rock not to have seen the dizzying stream of marketing for pre-workout products that supposedly increase Nitric Oxide (a.k.a., NO). On a molecular level, NO is a very short acting gas that your body produces to relax…
