Transform Your Body in Only 3 Short Workouts Per Week

If you are interested in losing fat as quickly as possible in the
comfort of your own home, then I have a guaranteed way to help you
burn fat and sculpt your body.

Just by using simple workouts that can easily be done first thing
in the morning or after your children go to bed, without endless
hours of cardio, fancy equipment or expensive supplements, then
this will be the most important letter you ever read in your entire
life. Here's why...

Craig Ballantyne is a fat-loss expert, publishing his fat-burning
workouts in national magazines such as Men's Health and Oxygen,
along with online newsletters EarlyToRise and Total Health
Breakthroughs. You've probably come across his videos on Youtube
and Men's Health, as well.

Craig has also created a trademarked fat loss system called
Turbulence Training. And as a fitness expert with a sincere interest
in your success for 2008, I've taken the time to evaluate all of
your training options to help you reach your New Year's Resolutions.

And you know what? After painstakingly reviewing the Turbulence
Training workouts and fat loss philosophy, comparing them to the
common long, slow cardio workouts that so many people are doing
(unsuccessfully, I might add), I've found that Turbulence Training
could be the most efficient and effective fat loss program on the
market.

With all of the "lose fat fast" programs and snake-oil supplements
out there, I have a strict criteria that a program has to meet
before I even consider recommending it to my friends.

But Turbulence Training is the real deal - after all, if these
workouts weren't, would the biggest fitness magazine in the world,
Men's Health, feature Turbulence Training workouts? Of course
not, they have too much to lose.

On the other hand, you have nothing to lose. Because not only are
his workouts proven by both research and experience, but you also
have a hundred percent satisfaction guarantee that you'll love his
workouts. Or just return it for your money back.

Let me tell you more about the Turbulence Training workouts.

First of all, they can all be done at home with a dumbbells, a
bench, and an exercise ball (a chin-up bar is also helpful for
those that are strong enough).

Second, thousands of both men AND women (yes, women too!)
have used these Turbulence Training workouts successfully to lose
fat in a very short amount of time. He's proven that you don't need
to be at the gym everyday for an hour or more.

In fact, the Turbulence Training workouts will only take 45
minutes, three days per week, and you can do everything at home. No
need for fancy, expensive memberships, or long commutes to an
annoying "mega-gym".

Turbulence Training is as straight-forward as any fat loss program
could be. There's no BS, no magic pills or powders to buy, and no
expensive gym memberships required.

If you've ever struggled to figure out what to do next in your fat
loss program, then worry no more. Turbulence Training spells it
out, workout by workout, exercise by exercise, set by set, and rep
by rep, for a full 16-weeks of advanced fat loss workouts.

Plus, the program also includes additional beginner workouts that
will help any newcomer get started on their fat loss plan.

How badly do you finally want to succeed this year?

Maybe you got off to a great start last year, but your momentum
fizzled out because you lacked the time to train 5 or more hours
per week as per last year's instructions. Or maybe you just got
tired of doing the same workout week-in, week-out, but your program
didn't have any variety built-in.

Well, all of those problems are fixed by the Turbulence Training
program. With all of the introductory workouts, regular TT bonuses,
16-weeks of advanced fat loss workouts, AND these 5 limited-time
bonuses, you could have enough workouts for over 6 months of fat
loss. Imagine how you'll look in 6 months if you lose a pound of
fat per week with Turbulence Training.

Wait, don't just imagine. Visualize. Believe. And then achieve.
Picture yourself on the beach, at long last enjoying the body you've
always wanted.

The body you've desired can be yours, and in less time than you've
always thought necessary. In addition to all of the workouts,
you'll get Dr. Chris Mohr's TT Fat Loss Nutrition Guidelines, and
Craig will tell you the #1 secret for sticking to a fat loss
program.

Get ready to experience a new body thanks to all the inches you'll
lose, the pounds you'll shed, and the energy you'll gain in the
next few days, weeks, and months with a structured,
professionally-designed, fat loss workout that you can do at home.

With Turbulence Training's efficient and effective exercise
selection, and the use of time-saving, metabolism-boosting interval
training, you'll get all of your workouts done in 45 minutes, three
times per week. That's right, in less time than it takes to watch
an episode of American Idol or Dancing with the Stars (even if you
TIVO it!), you can make massive improvements in your body.

So here's why I'm writing to you today:

Craig is quickly becoming an international fitness and fat loss
expert. His on-line clients now span the entire globe, and he no
longer has space for new clients. And those that are lucky
enough to work with him one-on-one pay over $200 per session for
his guidance through their personal Turbulence Training workouts.

Barbell Curl Squats

Secret Training Tip #225 - Barbell Curl Squats - The Toughest (and Most Effective!) Core Strength Exercise You Will EVER Do
By Nick Nilsson

This is my very favorite core exercise and, trust me, you will feel why from the VERY FIRST REP. It's a squat, but how you DO that squat forces the abdominal area to do almost ALL the work! If you want strong abs, it doesn't matter if you're a total beginner or an advanced trainer, TRY THIS EXERCISE.

This is one of THE best overall abdominal/core exercises I've EVER found. If you want a stronger core and you want it fast, THIS is the exercise to focus on. It's tough, but VERY effective.

The Curl Squat exercise is deceptively simple...basically, you're going to do a squat while holding the barbell in the top of the barbell curl position. That's it!

So what makes this exercise different from a front squat (where you support the weight across the front of your shoulders)? And what makes is so EXTREMELY effective for training the core (which is the REAL reason for doing this particular exercise, NOT for working the legs)?

I'll tell you!

Holding the resistance in front of your body in the top curl position takes away the shoulder support that you would normally get with a front squat. ALL the supporting tension goes directly onto the muscles of the core, instead of having much of it being taken up by the shoulders. ALL your core muscles will have to contract HARD throughout the entire movement in order to keep the barbell from falling forward.

The difference in position may seem subtle, but it's tension that you have to experience to believe!

This exercise also helps you to get a feel for how to properly use the abs during a squat, which is EXTREMELY important for maximizing your squat strength. Using the abs while squatting (especially at the bottom of the lift) is something that does not come naturally and is very rarely taught or explained to trainers. And believe me, it has the potential to add pounds to your squat FAST.

Another great benefit to this exercise is that your breathing muscles (the intercostals) NEVER get a chance to relax during this movement. From top to bottom and back up (even while you're "resting" at the top), your breathing muscles are being challenged because of the weight they're being forced to support.

This can build up great breathing strength (the term "breathing strength" may sound strange but watch a strongman explode a hot water bottle just by inflating it with lung power and you'll know what I'm talking about!) and carries directly over to your work capacity in the regular barbell squat as well as most other demanding exercises and sports!

How To Do It:
----------------------------

To do this exercise, all you really need is a barbell, but if you have access to a power rack, even better. The rack will make it easier to get into position for the exercise and will serve to "catch" the bar when you're done.

Set the rack up so that the racking pins are one notch below where you would normally set them for squats. The reason you want to set those pins one notch below is that by the time you're done with the exercise, it may be very hard to get the bar up to the height where you would normally rack the bar! With the racks a little lower, you'll have an easier time getting the bar back onto them.

Set the safety rails just above where you normally set them for regular squats the first time you try this. When you develop a better feel for how it's done, you can lower them a little to get the full range of motion.

The weight should be about the same as what you would use for barbell curls for about 8 to 10 reps. This is a starting point - you can add weight as you get stronger with the exercise.

Last-Minute Gifts

Don't Panic! What to Get for Last-Minute Gifts.

The stores are crowded.

People are driving like maniacs.

And, it's too late to shop online and receive your order in time for Christmas.

Or is it?

One of the most popular gifts this year is the gift of family-togetherness.

No, I'm not talking about a board game or a vacation (although both are nice gifts). I'm talking about making meal time easier for your favorite mom (or dad).

I've found a fantastic menu planning service that is getting rave reviews. It's a program that takes the guess-work out of "What's for dinner" by providing weekly menus AND shopping lists. Just print it and you're set.

And, the great thing is that they have an online program that allows you to eliminate foods that your family doesn't like (and add recipes that they do!)

If you've got onion-aversions, no problem.

Lactose-intolerant? We can handle that.

Want to add Grandma's meatloaf recipe? Sure!

It's very flexible, and it makes a GREAT gift for any busy person you know.

Teachers, working or stay at home parents, single people, newlyweds, newly divorced... anyone who eats food can use this program.

Nervous noshing causes holiday weight gain

I just read an article published by the Baylor College of Medicine and found out something I did not know.

According to Dr. Carolyn Cochrane, director of the Eating Disorders Program at The Menniger Clinic:

''Stress and overindulging are the key reasons for the rise in heart attacks during November and December''

Well, having a heart attack is certainly not a great way to enjoy the holidays!

The article went on to say that,''Stress may provide a sense that we are not in control of our lives. The subsequent strain can manipulate our eating behaviors, an activity that empowers us and satisfies a need to be in control.''

I won't bore you more details, but the ''take home'' of the article was that it is extremely important not to ''let yourself go'' during the holiday season.

At the end of the article, Nancy McRenolds the primary clinician in the Eating Disorders Program at The Menninger Clinic makes a great point:

''If we say to ourselves that we are stupid, ugly, fat and disgusting, that's the path our brain follows, if we say that we are beautiful, intelligent, sensitive and loving, that's the other pathway we can put in our brains. And you can say those things to yourself. The holidays may be here, but you're still in charge.''

This all goes back to the main and undisputed point...

*********************************************************************
How you think about yourself determines a big part of the behaviors you exhibit when it comes to your health.
*********************************************************************

But Changing the Way You Think Can be Tough

This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is the most effective tool for creating changes in your mind that lead to changes in your behaviors . . . PERIOD.

At the University of Iowa they are doing MRI studies where you actually see the brain following instructions under hypnosis.

People are actually shutting off the feelings of pain, and you can see the pain gateways in the brain being blocked . . . all under hypnosis.

If you can control pain under hypnosis, you can certainly control the way you think about food and stress.

Hypnosis can stop stress induced eating, pain, stress and more - but make sure you get the real thing.

Did you know that 99% of ''Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists'' do not even have a psychology degree or a license to practice mental health... Pretty Scary.

Get this, most hypnosis training requires only 150 hours to get a certificate.

To put this into perspective - My barber had to go to over 1000 hours of training! (150 hours is less than 4 full time weeks!)

You wouldn't go to a mechanic with 150 hours of training, or even 500 hours of training  that would be crazy.

For hypnosis to work, you want the therapist to have an advanced degree in psychology (for a doctorate it is typically 4-7 years post undergraduate). So you are looking at 8 THOUSAND HOURS of training! AND AT LEAST A YEAR OF SUPERVISION

AFTERWARDS.

AND THAT IS BEFORE THE HYPNOSIS TRAINING!

I just found a company whose whole philosophy is to bring you the real thing. They choose the best therapist for every issue where they publish audio hypnosis programs.

For fat loss they chose Dr. Roberta Temes. She is world famous with her hypnosis work, and is actually the editor of the first hypnosis text book used in medical schools <endash> so her work is studied by budding psychiatrists.

''The Hypnosis Network is clearly the best resource for audio hypnosis programs available today. They are recorded by the top professionals in the field and careful research has shown me that they are a high integrity company which is why I strongly recommend their guaranteed programs.''

-Dr. Joe Mercola

Most importantly, her program works.

''I got my FOCUS back! I am down over 40 lbs! I have been on Program consistently, week after week, for over a year! Not only that, the Program has been so easy this time! I am calm. I am back in control.''

Dotti Coon
Founder, Dotti's Weight Loss Zone
Weight Watchers Lifetime Member

''Enjoying Weight Loss is fabulous. Thought I forgot all about it yesterday, until I realized that I ate breakfast (which I rarely do), drank a lot of water, had a veggie dinner and DIDN'T EAT ANY SUGAR . . . A MIRACLE!''

-Ann Carlo
Sag Harbor, New York

''I am now down 20 pounds and still have not had any problems with stress eating (my lifetime habit is to overeat). I am into a size 16 from a 20/22 and people are finally beginning to notice. I personally thank you for your program even though I don't understand how it works. I am starting to like who I see in the mirror.''

-Syndi Ellison
Advertising & Finance Manager
Washington State Magazine

They have tons of these . . .

Now Back to Holiday Eating

Because they have a tool that we know can help you this season, we asked if we could give our readers something special for the holidays, and the founder agreed.

So now, until January 3rd, they are offering a package that will get you on the right track for 2008 at over 50% off of the normal price of the programs.

You basically will get the whole package for slightly less than $100 - if you think about how much you spend on dinners, drinks, etc... this is nothing to finally get to your ideal weight. http://tinyurl.com/2refb8

I hope you take them up on this opportunity, and if you have any questions just ask them.

Regards,

Art Breshears

P.S. They have 24 other products created by world class therapists: http://tinyurl.com/2refb8

P.P.S. Another great one for the season if weight is not an issue is by far the best program out there for managing your stress and anxiety.

Holiday Fat Loss Tips

Politically Incorrect Holiday Fat Loss Tips
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
 

I was at a big event last week and was reminded how important it is to have strategies for this season of high-calorie parties and busy schedules. But I get ticked off by the tired old suggestions you find on the Internet or in magazines like Woman's World.

Often the suggestions are lack any substance, because the writers don't want to imply you actually have to make a sacrifice to succeed. They make fat loss sound easy, as if all you had to do was park at the far end of the parking lot and you'd burn all the calories from 5 shortbread cookies.

Well it doesn't work that way...So here are my politically incorrect, unique Turbulence Training strategies to help you keep off the holiday pounds.

By the way, I "borrowed" a few ideas from contestants in my Turbulence Training Transformation Contest. The Transformation is rocking with social support and success stories right now, even while the rest of the world struggles with weight gain, these TT users are losing fat over the holidays.

Back Pain At The Office

Back Pain At The Office
By Jesse Cannone, CFT, CPRS

It's getting to be so bad that by Monday afternoon, you're already tired of being at the office. You're not even thinking as far ahead as Friday. Just getting to hump day is going to be challenge enough. In reality, it's not the folks you work with who are getting you down—they're tolerable, mostly, although there is that one guy in accounting. Where do they find these people?

It's not even your boss, who, if he knew even half as much as you do, WOULD be a shoo-in for Executive of the Year.

No, the biggest pain in your neck is actually located a bit lower. And it's really what's making working where you do seem a lot worse than it actually is.

Face it. It's your aching back that's sucking the joy out of your nine-to-five existence and making you feel 10 years older to boot.

Sure, you've learned to tolerate the bad coffee, pointless meetings, and lame jokes in the course of your day. But you just can't tough it out when it comes to back pain, which can range from dull, nagging aches to those unexpected twinges that feel like you've been hit with a taser gun.

If it's any consolation, you're not alone. More than 31 million Americans have low back pain at any given time. The bad news about back pain is that it not only lives with you all day at the office but it also comes home with you at night. It may even dog your weekends.

How do you develop pain?

If you are experiencing back pain at the office, you may think that it is coming from all the sitting, standing, and lifting that you have to do. And, indirectly, it does. But it is actually more about how the body has to adapt to all the sitting, standing, and lifting than the activity itself. Let's take sitting as an example.

Because of the amount of time you spend sitting, your body must gradually adapt itself to that position. This happens in a number of ways. The first thing it must adapt to is how the weight goes through your hips and pelvis. Then, there is the way you sit—upright, slouching, or something in between. Most importantly, it's what happens to the muscles while you're sitting. For example, your hip flexors will get tight from being in a shortened position and your butt will get weak and flabby from being in a relaxed state.

That simple combination of tight hip flexors and weak glutes is called a "muscle imbalance." The result of these muscle imbalances will be postural dysfunctions of your pelvis and spine. These imbalances send both your spine and pelvis into abnormal positions, the combination of which can be devastating to a person with a healthy back and catastrophic for a person suffering from any form of back pain.

What can you do about it?

Lunch-Time Workouts

Looking for time to workout? What do you do during your daily lunch break? Do you go out with colleagues and friends; do you sit at your desk and work through lunch; or do you hang out and gossip in the break room? Let’s makeover your lunch time and use it to sneak in a quick little workout too.

Start by packing something healthy for lunch. Not only will you save time and money, you can also count on something healthy to eat that won’t weigh you down. Salads, wraps, pitas, and sandwiches packed with veggies, lettuce, tomato, and lean meats are all great options. Bring your own lunch and you won’t be wasting time deciding where you will eat and waiting for your food.

Next, scout out workout options around your office. Is there a gym in your office building or close by? If you don’t have a gym close-by or just don’t enjoy that type of workout, bring a pair of comfortable shoes and go for a walk during your lunch break. Maybe there is a nice park nearby, have your lunch there after your walk. If you don’t have a park near your office, walking around several blocks will do too.

Ask a coworker if they would like to join you. That way you motivate each other and hold each other accountable. And it makes exercise more interesting.

If you can’t find a workout buddy, consider keeping a workout journal to hold yourself accountable for your workouts. Listen to some music or audio books on your MP3 player while you work out. Before you know it working out at lunch time will become a habit that will energize you for the rest of your workday, not to mention it will also lead you down a path to a healthier you.

  6. Fruit salad – Cut up a bunch of fresh fruit and drizzle it with a bit of lemon juice as a natural preservative. Keep the fruit handy in the fridge to make it easy to grab instead of chips or sweets.

  21. Whole-grain crackers – Top these with cheese, lean sandwich meat, tuna or peanut butter.

  22. Sunflower seeds – These yummy seeds make another great portable snack. For a bit of variety, you can also mix with other nuts and seeds.

  25. Cottage cheese – Eat it plain or topped with fresh fruit.  You can choose low-fat cottage cheese for a healthier version.

  26. Bran or banana muffins – Make your own and substitute the oil with apple sauce for a great healthy snack.

  27. Low-fat string cheese – String cheese makes another great portable snack. Eat it alone or mix it up by wrapping some thin sliced ham or salami around it.

  28. Dried Fruit – You can find anything from apples to pineapples dried. They make a great sweet and crunchy snack. Banana chips are also always a great option.

  29. Edamame – These are soy beans in their shell. Steam them and top with a bit of salt or lemon juice.

  30. Apple sauce – Apple sauce is available in single serving cups and comes in a few different flavors.

  31. Natural, all-fruit leathers – These are a great healthy alternative to sugar snacks like fruit rollups.

  32. Cereal bars – You can choose from all kinds of different low-sugar cereal bars.

  33. Low-fat or soy milk – A cup of milk can make a very filling snack on the go.

  34. Chocolate dipped strawberries – If you have a chocolate craving, dip some strawberries or other fresh fruit into melted dark chocolate for a yummy and healthy treat.

  35. Tofu smoothie with fruit – Blend silken tofu with frozen fruit into a creamy smoothie.

  36. Animal Crackers – These are low-sugar cookies kids are sure to love. Serve them with a glass of milk.

  37. Fruit and Cheese Kabobs – Alternate chunks of fresh fruit and cheese cubes and thread them on a bamboo skewer for a fun and healthy snack.

  38. Cooked Sweet Potato – Just cut it up in chunks. They are delicious warm or cold.

  39. Avocado chunks – If the avocado gets very ripe and “squishy”, spread it on some whole wheat toast, just like you would butter.

  40. Lettuce Wraps – Take a large leaf of lettuce and top it with raw veggies, ham or turkey and a little low-fat ranch dressing. Wrap up and serve.

Whole Grains - Dietary Fiber

Whole Grains throughout Your Day

Studies have shown that a healthy diet and moderate exercise can significantly reduce the risk of degenerative diseases. More and more people are taking a proactive approach to improving their lifestyle. We all know that adding whole grains and dietary fiber to your diet is a giant step towards optimal health.

What makes fiber a good choice? Fiber is important for the health of our digestive system and lowers cholesterol. Dietary fiber is the parts of the plants that our bodies can’t digest; therefore it passes through our bodies without being absorbed. Foods that contain fiber are often a good source of other essential nutrients.

Food manufacturers have started catering to the public’s demand for better tasting healthy fare, but be sure to read the nutritional labels to ensure you are getting the promised fiber content. The Institute of Medicine and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 recommend that children (ages 1 and up) and adults consume 14 grams of fiber for every 1000 calories of food they eat each day.

For breakfast foods, look for whole grain varieties of pancake and waffle mixes. Eat whole fruits instead of drinking fruit juices. Add berries to your cereal, shakes, and yogurt. Skip the drive through and make your own breakfast sandwich using low-fat cheese, one egg, and Canadian bacon or low-fat turkey bacon on a whole grain English muffin.

Replace white rice with brown rice; white bread and pasta with whole grain varieties. Have veggies with your meals whenever possible. Take them with you for a meal or a snack by having them cut up and ready to go.

Snacking throughout the day doesn’t have to mean munching down on bags of high calorie foods. Snack on raw vegetables or look for whole grain varieties of your favorite snack crackers.

Add crushed bran cereal or unprocessed wheat bran to cakes, cookies, and muffins; or to baked casseroles and meatloaf.

Substitute legumes for meat up to three times a week. Use in place of meat; serve at a side dish; or replace the cream in your creamy soups with a can of drained, rinsed, and pureed white beans.

Try international dishes that use whole grains and legumes as part of the main meal.

The next time you’re shopping, be sure to compare like products to see if there’s a whole grain option. Not only will it fill you up but it will lower your risk of cancer and heart disease, too!

How To Maintain Your Bodybuilding Program Through The Holidays

How To Maintain Your Bodybuilding Program Through The Holidays
By Hugo Rivera CFT, SPN, BSCE.


The holidays are approaching with Christmas leading the way followed by New Years not too far behind. During this time of joy and happiness unfortunately most people, including some of us bodybuilders, tend to forget about their bodybuilding workouts and nutrition plans. If thoughts of dumping your fitness and bodybuilding program have crossed your mind, allow me to remind you that this road only leads to a physique that could be used as a ‘Before’ picture on the latest fat burner ads.

However, what if I told you that with some planning ahead you can have your cake and eat it too? I promise you that if you practice self discipline and follow all of the tactics discussed below, your fat gain during the Holidays will be minimized, and provided that you train hard, even if you use my bodybuilding holiday routine described below, you will come out with new muscle that you did not have before.

Bodybuilding Tips & Advice For Staying Fit During The Holidays

There are some key steps that need to be followed in order to stay fit during the Holidays. Follow the steps below and I guarantee you that come New Year, losing weight will not be on your list of resolutions:

1. Plan Ahead, Be Organized.
Plan your bodybuilding workout days one full week ahead. Because of the amounts of get-togethers and days that the gym may be closed, it is best if you decide a week ahead which days you will be attending the gym. Simply take out your calendar and schedule your workouts and even write down at what times these will be performed. In this manner, your chances of missing a workout due to parties or gym closures are eliminated.

2. Get Your Workouts In Early:
Workout as early as possible, preferably first thing in the morning. If your schedule is really hectic, I would advise waking up early and getting the training done, if possible, right before you go to work.

If this is not possible, then try doing it at lunch time or right after work so that nothing else interferes with your workout. On days off from work, definitely get the training done as early as possible.

3 . Hugo's Holiday Abbreviated Bodybuilding Routine ( See Below For Full Routine)
If you feel that you really cannot dedicate more than 3 days a week to your training, then just try out my Abbreviated Bodybuilding Holiday Routine shown below. The routine is designed for a serious natural bodybuilder that wants maximum muscle along with definition and is willing to train 3 days a week for 75 minutes. Not everybody is trying to look like a bodybuilder , if your just looking to tone up , then just cut 1 set for all the exercises listed and this will bring down your gym time by around 15-20 minutes so each workout will be around 55 minutes long or so. So less than 3 hours in total out of your entire week.

4. Planning Your Diet Cheat Days:
Plan Your Cheat Days Wisely. I have to say that I am an expert at this one. Reason for this is because Thanksgiving is on the 24th, my birthday is on December 5th, my anniversary on December 17th, Christmas on the 25th and New Year's on the 31.

So those are my cheat days. My advice is to attempt to space cheat days with at least 5-6 days in between, 6 being the better choice.

5. Eating Cheat Meals Wisely:
Eat your cheat meals wisely. When you have a cheat meal, start eating the protein portion first as this will get you to start getting full. Leave the carbs for the end of the meal.
Also, try to not stuff yourself. Instead allocate six hours of cheating per cheat day and instead of having just one huge binge meal that prevents you from even being able to walk after you are done, have 3 smaller meals instead; one every 90 minutes. Take around 30 minutes to savor and make sure that after you are done with each meal you feel like you have a bit of room left. The best strategy is to eat until you are comfortably full.

After your cheat period, go back on your regular diet.

6. Workout Before Cheating:
Before a cheat period it is great to have a tough workout first in order to minimize fat gain and maximize muscle gain. Reason for this is because after a workout the body is primed to absorb nutrients in the form of proteins and carbohydrates. Thus, having a cheat meal afterwards will ensure that most nutrients are used for recovery and muscle production.

7. Supplementing Before Cheating:
Take some 200mcg of Chromium Picolinate and 300 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid at the beginning of your cheat period. These supplements help increase your cell's ability to accept insulin and thus assimilate the extra carbohydrates better. As a matter of fact, increasing insulin sensitivity is one of the reasons why I like to have a big workout prior to the cheat period.
In addition, you can also take some Nitric Oxide Boosters and creatine as well 30 minutes prior to the first cheat meal in order to take advantage of the extra carbohydrates and insulin spike.
Finally, a good thermogenic supplement like Labrada’s Charge ASF is a good idea as well since this will ensure that your appetite is kept under control.

8. Have Essential Fatty Acids:
Have some EFA's with your cheat meal. Research indicates that some essential fats like the ones found in flaxseed oil or fish oils have anti-lipolitic properties. In other words, they inhibit some of the enzymes responsible for fat storage. Because of this, by taking these fats with your first cheat meal of your cheat period, you can minimize some of the damage. They also serve as a good natural appetite suppressant.

One tablespoon of Carlson Fish Oils or Spectrum Flaxseed Oil should do the trick. Capsules can be used but you would need 10-14 of them to equal a tablespoon of the liquid version.

9. Have Digestive Enzymes Prior To Your Cheat Meal:
Take some digestive enzymes prior to each one of your cheat meals. This will ensure maximum nutrient assimilation and will also help you avoid feelings of excessive fullness and indigestion. The best formula is a comprehensive enzyme formula with enzymes for proper digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

10. Have A Walk After The Cheat Period:
Three to five hours after the cheat period has ended, have a 30-45 minute walk. I'm not talking about anything strenuous; around 3 miles per hour is a good pace. Doing some cardiovascular activity after the cheat period has ended will start burning some of the carbohydrates that may still be lingering around. The more of these you burn, the less likelihood of storing body fat. If you cannot do this walk on the same day of the cheat period then try it on the morning after on an empty stomach.

Fat Loss - The Water Connection

The Magic Potion For Fat Loss
By Holly Rigsby, CPT

If there were ever a magic potion for fat loss – it would be water. Our bodies are comprised of about 70% water. We lose about a liter (34 ounces) of water per day under normal circumstances and when the temperature in our body rises, as during exercise, we lose higher amounts of water through sweat. It only makes sense that we need to continually replenish this supply for water is necessary for nearly every function in our body. Water regulates our temperature, supports and protects our organs, helps with digestion, transports nutrients to our muscles and helps move along waste by products.

Water is, in essence, the key to fat metabolism. Here's why: one of you liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat to be burned for energy. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys cannot function properly and the liver begins to take over – as a result of working overtime, the liver metabolizes LESS fat so MORE fat remains in your body.

Sometimes we mistake mild states of dehydration for hunger. If we don't get enough fluids, our bodies give us indications that are similar to hunger pains. When this occurs, we start eating because we misunderstood what are bodies were telling us. Unnecessary calorie consumption can lead to excessive fat!

Water is a natural appetite suppressant. Drinking lots of water throughout the day helps to keep you feeling full. If your stomach feels full – you are less likely to overeat!

A constant supply of water is vital before, during and after a workout. Dehydration leads to a lack of energy, muscle fatigue and cramping. Even small amounts of water loss can hinder exercise performance.

Remember that alcohol and caffeine are diuretics, making you lose even more water, so be sure to compensate for the additional loss.

How to do it: You can replace the water lost during a typical day by drinking a minimum of 6-8 8 oz. glasses of water a day. Begin by drinking your first big glass of water right when you wake up. Drink a full glass of water with each meal. Keep water with you at all times.

To prevent dehydration, make sure you're drinking adequate amounts of water before, during and after a workout. As a rule of thumb, drink 8-12 ounces of water at least an hour before beginning to exercise, 8 oz during exercise and 8 oz when finished. If you are hungry about an hour after eating, try drinking a glass or two of water- you maybe misreading thirst for hunger. If you are still hungry after 15-20 minutes then proceed with a supportive snack to tide you over until your next meal.

Here's a ‘success strategy' to get you started: Make drinking water more fun by adding a slice of lemon or lime. Drink water out of a frosted mug or colorful glass. Grab-n-go flavor packets add variety to water between meals. Keep a bottle of water in the car at all times. At work, pack an allotted number of bottled water and set a goal to finish the pack by the end of the day.

For those who tend to prefer carbonated beverages to plain water try sparkling water. Not only is it crisp and refreshing, it satisfies the need for carbonation. Just make sure you choose a sparkling water that does not contain sugar or fruit juice to avoid additional calories.

So if your goal is fat loss, combine a total body strength training program, supportive nutrition and some interval training with your magic fat loss potion and you're destined for success!

The Best Diet And Exercises For A Six Pack

A question I run into a lot from personal training clients is "What diet and exercises are the best for me to do so I can see my abs?" For some reason there is a misconception that there is something special that you do different from regular training in order to get a six-pack.

The truth of the matter is that developing a six pack comes back to the same information that we have heard before. You need to train your whole body, and eat properly in order to reduce your body fat so that your abdominals become visible.

It's just not possible to wake up one day and decide that you would like to have a lean, fat free stomach and that you can achieve this through some quick "plan" that will zero in on your
stomach to the exclusion of the rest of your body.

You can have the main goal of seeing a massive change to your stomach but if you take the correct actions to attain a six-pack in the fastest manner possible, you MUST see changes in your whole body.

What I am saying is that even though it may seem indirect, you will see greater visual changes to your stomach in a shorter period of time from doing three whole body workouts a week, some
cardio and eating 5 small meals a day then you ever will from the best ab gadgets and fat burning pills out there.

Let's just say for the sake of argument that some of these ab machines work excellent for stimulating the abdominals. They still don't do anything to remove the layer of fat that is covering them and making them impossible to see. In order to remove that layer of fat, you need to burn off calories and you also need a way to keep that layer from coming back. This brings me to the
fat burning pills.

First let me say that fat burners are a joke and that you can get the same effect from drinking coffee and green tea. That effect is a temporary high in energy and kick in the pants to your
nervous system. You MAY burn slightly more calories because of your heightened energy levels but when you crash down and need a nap, you're not burning very many calories then are you?

Let's just say that there was a fat burner that could be the answer to all your prayers and that just by taking it would give you a six pack in a couple of weeks. What happens once you have that six pack? You'd need to keep taking and paying for those pills in order keep what you have. In other words, you'd be an addict with no spare cash. That's assuming that fat burners did work, which they don't. There was a time when some of them did, but these days the ingredients that make them work are now illegal.

Remember, the quickest route to a fat free, flat stomach is getting rid of excess body fat. You're abs are already there! Reach down and touch your stomach. Dig deep into any cushioning you have there and you will feel lumps! Those are your abs. If you take away the cushioning, you will see them.

If you want to see a six pack in the shortest possible time, get working on a full body resistance training program that includes some abdominal work and cardio work. Start eating the right foods. Foods that will fire up your metabolism and give you more energy. Combine these factors for a couple of weeks and you will see more results in a couple of weeks then any ab gadget or fat burning pill could ever give you.

Fat Burning Tips

5 More Fat Burning Tips for You
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

At this time of year, we can use every last tip to help avoid holiday weight gain.

So here are 5 more fat loss tips for beginner & advanced readers.

1) No liquid calories (with the exception of a post-workout drink).

Get rid of all the juices, the sodas, and the sports drinks. Liquid sugar is the last thing you need when you are trying to lose fat.

You must also limit your alcohol intake - especially if you are adding mix to drinks...that is a double calorie bomb! A single "Jackand Coke" is over 200 calories (100 calories from booze and 100 calories from mix).

2) No fast food.

Do not eat at fast food restaurants. Even if you choose what you think is healthy, remember this:

Fast food restaurants are all about profit.

And in order to profit while giving you cheap, quick, and easy to prepare foods, the quality of the food ingredients will be poor - especially the protein.

Now you might have read that you can still make healthy choices at fast food restaurants. But you know what, that's just politically-correct opinion. If it's fast food, it's poor food.

Walking into a burger joint and grabbing a chicken breast on a white bread bun with a piece of old lettuce and a half-green, half-pink tomato is "barely" healthy eating.

The politically-incorrect truth is that it's going to take time and effort to eat properly. You will have to plan, shop, and prepare healthy meals. You will have to spend time cleaning, cutting, and cooking your food. That's the truth.

But believe me, it will taste so much better than fast food, and healthy eating will make you more alert. Eating fast food will make you feel terrible, and will make you want to have an afternoon nap at your desk.

Nutrition Program

Characteristics Of A Good Nutrition Program
By Hugo Rivera CFT, SPN, BSCE.

Nutrition is what gives us the raw materials for recuperation, energy, and growth. Without a good diet, your dreams of achieving your ideal body will never be reached.

We'll now discuss the characteristics of a good nutrition program and we'll also go over nutrition basics.


What Should A Good Nutrition Program Consist Of?

1) It should favor smaller and frequent feedings throughout the day instead of smaller ones.

Why? Because when you feed your body several times a day, your metabolism increases. Therefore, you burn more fat. Frequent feedings are of particular importance since after three to four hours of no food your body switches to a catabolic state (a state in which you lose muscle and gain fat!). The body believes that it is starving and it starts feeding itself on lean muscle tissue and it prepares to store calories as fat. Bad scenario!

Therefore, in order for your program to work, you will eat between four to six meals (depending gender and goals) a day spaced out at 2-1/2 to 3 hour intervals.

2) Every meal should have carbohydrates, protein and fat in the correct ratios.

Having a meal that is not balanced (for example is all carbohydrates) won't yield the desired results. Every macronutrient has to be present in order for the body to absorb them and use them properly. Without boring you with the effect of food on the body's biochemistry, let's just say that if you only eat carbohydrates in one meal without anything else, your energy levels will crash in about 30 minutes and your body will be storing any carbohydrates that were not used into fat.

Conversely, if you only eat protein, you will lack energy and your body will not be able to turn the protein into muscle because it is difficult for the body to absorb protein in the absence of carbohydrates. In addition, the ratios for each particular macronutrient have to be correct in order to get the results that you want.


The ratio of our diet will look like the following:

Exercises Providing Fast Results

Which Exercises Are The Best For Fast Results ?
By Hugo Rivera CFT, SPN, BSCE.

In weight training, there is a variety of exercises that one can choose from to sculpt the body of your dreams. Results in bodybuilding or body sculpting are generally measured in body composition changes; increased muscle mass or tone, depending on the goal, along with decreases in body fat. The speed at which such changes are acquired depends on the training protocol used, the nutrition plan followed and the amount of rest (good night sleep) that the trainee gets.

In order for a training protocol to work at peak efficiency, not only must it be periodized or cycled but it also must include exercises that give you the most stimulation in the minimum amount of time.

Different exercises provide different levels of stimulation. Exercises like the leg extensions, while excellent for sculpting the lower part of the quadriceps, produce less of a stimulating effect than an exercise like the squat. The efficacy of an exercise really depends on the exercise's ability to involve the maximum amount of muscle fibers and also on its ability to provide a neuromuscular stimulation (NMS).

Neuromuscular stimulation is of crucial importance as it is the nervous system that ultimately sends a signal to the brain requesting to start the muscle growth process. Having said that, how do we determine what the stimulation factor of each exercise is? Such will be the topic of the next section.

The NMS Classes

In order to rate what the NMS of each exercise is, I borrowed the Class rating system used for classifying the speed of DSL systems (technology used to achieve high speed connections to the Internet through your phone line) and tailored it to fit my purpose. In this system a Class 1 technology has lower speeds than a Class 2 technology.

Therefore, in our exercise rating system composed of four classes, a Class 1 exercise yields the lowest NMS (this class is composed of variable resistance machine type of exercises) while a Class 4 exercise yields the highest NMS and is therefore the hardest but most stimulating one. In each class we may also have subclasses such as Class 1a and Class 1b. A Class 1a exercise will yield less NMS than a Class 1b.

Body Re-Engineering, have you seen it?

I recently got information on natural bodybuilding champion Hugo Rivera's Body Re-Engineering Program. You can get pretty jaded and uninspired with the latest and greatest bodybuilding/fat loss product but WOW! 

It's the approach Hugo takes to creating muscle and slashing body fat which has really impressed me, and got me hooked. It's quite simply unique. He uses a specialized system of calorie cycling and some unorthodox training techniques which combined allow you to slash body fat and gain muscle mass at the same time , creating pretty inspirational results.

I've not seen a program quite like Hugo's before it's certainly NOT another "me to" type product, this thing works, you only need to look at Hugo and his clients to see how amazingly powerful the Body Re-Engineering Program is.

Hugo is not one of those guys who came out of the womb with great genetics, he struggled in childhood with obesity and then anorexia, it was this poor start to life that forced him to finally create his bodybuilding system which clearly works for everybody irrelevant of age, sex or body type. He has achieved an amazing physique despite having lousy genetics, this is really a program everybody can succeed on.

It's very carefully split into sections to deal with different body types as Hugo does not subscribe to the one size fits all approach, it's a highly tailored and unique approach.

In addition Hugo is giving away a lot of special bonus material if you order soon, the one which stands out most is actual access to Hugo himself, so you can ask him questions directly and get support on the Body Re-Engineering Program.

In addition you gain access to Hugo's private members area, where you watch impressive videos of Hugo actually performing all the exercises in the program online , and download pre made diets to make following the program as simple as possible.

How Did Canada Get So Fat?

I opened the paper this morning to find out that the country I live in has just taken the number one spot as the fattest country in the world. I don't know when it happened but just like a cupcake sneaking onto the hips, Canada has earned the title of having the largest obesity problem of 63 different countries in a recent survey by the American Heart Association. I wish I could say this was another American conspiracy theory but alas, it's not.

To tell you the truth, I would have rather seen Canada in a number one spot in the Olympics, but I guess for now, this will be our claim to fame. It's baffling because as far as resources go, we have access to everything we could possibly need to stay fit. We have every tool we need to be healthy and vibrant. We have access to medicare, lots of money for food and gym memberships and plenty of leisure time to use it all, and yet our men have the largest waistlines short of the equator itself.

Maybe that is exactly the problem. We have it too easy. Nothing requires the effort that would suck a few inches off those thighs. While most countries are growing and picking their foods in the backyard and biking to work, we spend a couple hundred dollars on downtown parking and an expansive, oops, I mean expensive meal. We need to get back to basics and we need to do it fast.

We need to stop thinking that throwing money at fad diets and fancy machines will fix our problem of obesity. What we need to do is use our bodies the way they were intended to be used, for working. We need to stop consuming more than we need for optimum energy and performance and we need to GOYA.

What's GOYA, well it means Get Off Your, you can figure out the rest. Besides medical issues that are much more rare than the number of people that use it as an excuse, you only get obese by consuming too much and exercising too little. When you think about that statement, that tells me that a lot of people are wasting their lives standing on the sidelines doing little more than watching TV and stuffing their faces. That's sad.

It's sad because life is full of adventures to be had and they can't be experienced sitting on the couch. Getting out dancing, going to the beach for a swim, snowboarding in the winter and dirt biking in the summer. These are all things that make everyday of your life an experience worth the living. An adventure.

I was recently on a trip to Mexico where a 40 something couple had spent a couple of hundred dollars to do a tour of a remote town. Once we got there this couple sat outside the bus for a couple of hours until the tour was over because they got winded when they tried to walk the streets. I'm not talking crazy hills but normal rolling streets that the villagers walk every day. They wasted their money and didn't get to see some things that were a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I'm upset that Canada has taken the lead on this dubious title but my hope is that maybe it will be a wake up call. Don't stand on the sidelines any longer. Get out and live life to the fullest. Treat your body as your greatest asset and GOYA.

Supplement Checklist

Here is Your Supplement Checklist

By: Marc David
www.Beginning-Bodybuilding.com

Confused Supplement Seeker,

A few days ago this kid posted his supplement stack pictures. He spends $400+ a month on supplements! I think I spend under $50 and that's if I'm being experimental.

I'll refrain from talking about brand names and such as I think we all have our opinions on those and many times price is a factor. Let's just stick to the overall basics.

So let's begin...

Foundational Supplements:

* Multi-vitamin
* Essential Fatty Acid complex

The multi-vitamin will act as an insurance policy. Variety in your diet is great and you should strive for it, but not all of us get everything we need for optimal performance. And with the debates on food quality, it's just a decent idea to take a multi- vitamin.

An EFA complex gives you so many benefits to fat burning and muscle building by increasing your metabolism and the heart healthy benefits, it's just a must. Eating plenty of fish will help ensure you are getting your Omega acids but again, insurance policy and a decent foundational supplement.

And that's it!

Performance/Muscle Building Supplements:

* Whey protein
* Creatine

Why isn't protein a foundational? Because I believe that if you wanted to, you could get all your protein needs from whole foods. It's not a foundational to take a shake even after a workout.

And while you can argue that the body will absorb it better and such, it still doesn't make it a must even as an insurance policy.

But it sure as heck does help. I think most bodybuilders will take some form of whey shake at some point during the day. My guess is in the morning upon waking up and after a workout.

Good old creatine. It's proven in over 300 peer reviewed published articles on it's improvements to the bodybuilding athlete.

Optional Supplements:

* Beta-Alanine
* Glutamine
* Casein
* Other proteins

An up-coming major player in coo hoots with creatine is beta- alanine. From my own research and experimentation, it's a fine supplement and not a bank breaker. I do stack this with my BCAA supplement that has creatine in it. One to watch at the least.

Glutamine is something that gets a lot of attention but rarely do we find studies that show it's clear link to bodybuilding. Needless to say...

You can try it out if you want.

Casein is just a slower digesting protein. Many people are firm believers in mixing proteins especially at night when you want a slower digesting protein. Some products have protein combinations in them already. Dairy proteins like cottage cheese have casein in them and make a very good nighttime snack.

Other proteins like egg white protein or vegetarian proteins might be something optional if you find it necessary or beneficial.

Experimental Supplements:

* BCAAs
* Caffeine
* CLA

Branch Chain Aminos are great. Especially in a pre-workout formula. At the moment, I've had great personal success using a BCAA powder with creatine mixed in it. Not something for everybody but if you are looking for that extra edge, BCAA style supplements sure do have a lot of valid research behind them to suggest a performance enhancement.

Caffeine for weight loss or a metabolism boost or maybe you just like your local coffee shop. I don't experiment with it at all but I do like my coffee. Many people find that caffeine in coffee or green tea make good herbal weight loss products that are safe.

CLA is an old school healthy fat that get press every now and again. Lately there's not much promise in terms of human weight reduction but again, something to consider. Don't expert miracles. I tried it once. Interesting. Not a supplement that you'll find in my closet though.

Remember, there are hundreds of supplements out there and the list is growing daily. These few are really all you'll need in addition to your 5-6 meals a day.

If you were to stick just with the foundational supplements, you would still make fantastic progress and spend under $30 a month on supplements.

Gain Muscle Mass Without Getting Fat

Can You Gain Muscle Weight Without Getting Fat?
By Vince DelMonte

There are two common fitness goals - to gain muscle mass and to lose body fat. Unfortunately, for the most part, the two goals are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Building muscle mass is going to require you to take in a surplus of calories because, well, let's face it, you can't build muscle out of nothing (unless of course you have some chemical help going on).

Losing fat mass on the other hand is going to require you to be in a negative calorie balance because that is what will get your body burning off additional body fat as fuel for its tissues.

Striving to accomplish both goals at the same time is rarely a good approach because more than likely you will just end up spinning your wheels and getting nowhere.

Most weight lifters will have to accept some fat gain when they are looking to gain weight, however how much fat gain they need to add is question. It is this variable that we are hoping to influence.

Can you really gain weight without getting fat?

When adding muscle mass there are two approaches you can take.

Some take the approach of just eating as much food as they can possible cram into themselves. Their life suddenly becomes one long 24-hour buffet in their quest for muscle mass as they are under the thinking that the more food that goes in, the more muscle synthesis that will go on.

This thinking is heavily flawed. The body can only assimilate so much muscle tissue at once and after it has done so, any remaining calories are simply going to be stored as body fat. Plain and simple. You my friend, are no exception to the rule.

For those guys who are out there taking in five thousand or more calories per day, this is obviously going to be way more than they need and will result in a considerable amount of unwanted fat weight over a period of three to six months (how long most people will 'bulk' for).

The second option is to adopt a more moderate approach and only eat so many additional calories to support this muscle growth and that's it. This will allow you to hopefully get as much lean tissue gained as possible without the accumulation of a monstrous rise in body fat.

So that leads us to the next question you're probably wondering. How much muscle can you build? How many calories over maintenance should you be eating?

Fat Burning Cardio

Amazing Discovery of New Cardio Method for Fat Burning
By Craig Ballantyne

Shocking weight loss research out of Australia has recently shown that the old way of using cardio for fat burning just doesn't work. Medical researchers put women through a 15 week period of cardio workouts, and yet these women did not lose any weight over the entire program.

Both researchers and subjects were stunned by the lack of results. But that wasn't the only surprise.

Another group of women were in the exercise study, but they used a secret form of short fat burning cardio workouts called "Intervals" for the 15 week study. The shocking results of the study showed that the subjects lost more body fat from shorter interval training workouts - in half the time as the cardio group.

And not only did the interval training group achieve more fat burning results than the cardio group, and in less time, but the interval training also resulted in a dramatic decrease in belly fat. In fact, the researchers went so far as to say that interval training results in the "spot reduction" that all men and women try to achieve with abdominal training.

When interviewed, Professor Steve Boucher, one of the Australian researchers, explained, "high intensity intermittent exercise may result in greater fat loss in the abdomen". That means that unlike doing hundreds of crunches, interval training can work to burn belly fat over everything else.

This is incredible news for all men and women who want to achieve a lean midsection or even 6-pack abs. While most men and women spend all their time on abdominal exercises, the latest research clearly shows we should be doing interval training, not slow cardio or endless crunches. Intervals are the best way to lose stomach fat.

Fitness experts in North America have been one step ahead of this research. In fact, most fat loss programs these days include an interval training program. If your workout doesn't use interval training, you could be missing out on maximum belly fat burning. Fitness experts in North America have identified cardio as having what they call a "dark side". This refers to the increased risk of injury and lack of results from slow cardio.

The short, burst exercise workouts of interval training use more intense effort to get more results in less time than cardio. And more importantly, the workouts are over in less time. The researchers theorized interval training works better because it boosts fat burning hormones, while cardio does not. The Australian research group believes that men can also burn fat with interval training.

If you are new to interval training, you should start conservatively. Begin by doing 1 minute rounds of interval training at a slightly harder than normal exercise pace. Then spend 1 minute at a slow pace as a recovery interval. Do up to 6 intervals per workout, going between the hard exercise and easy exercise portions for a total of 12 minutes. Always include a 4-minute warmup and 4-minute cooldown to complete your 20 minute interval training session.

As your fitness improves, you can increase your interval intensity. Perform this type of workout 3 times per week after your resistance training workout and you will lose stomach fat, burn off your belly, and sculpt your body to develop a lean mid-section and toned arms.

Download the free report, "The Dark Side of Cardio".

Craig Ballantyne exposes fat loss myths, useless supplements and foods that make you gain fat. Plus, you'll get fat burning exercises to lose stomach fat and sculpt your body.

Skinny Runts Weight Lifting Rules

Weight Lifting Rules For Skinny Runts
By Vince DelMonte


You wake up in the morning and look in the mirror. Pleased with your appearance? If you more resemble the appearance of a long distance marathon runner than a world class sprinter, don’t worry, you aren't alone. You just need to start following these weight lifting rules.

There are quite a few guys who simply have trouble packing on the lean muscle mass. Whether their hormonal environment isn't quite as favourable or genetics was just out to get them at birth, one thing is for sure and that's that they need to follow a slightly different set of weight lifting methods than those who seem to grow muscle overnight.

Luckily for you, you're taking the time to do your research about weight lifting so you won't be destined to a life where it seems like a strong wind might knock you over.

First, one of the key factors that skinny guys need to remember is that they must avoid volume work at all costs.

Rule #1:

Get in the gym and get out! That should be your motto from this day forward. Repeat it. Breathe it. Live it. Weight lifting is a calorie expensive activity and you need all the calories you can get at this point. If you are burning it up in the gym every single day, how do you expect to grow? You won't.

You grow when you are resting and generally, the skinnier you are, the more rest you are going to need.

Now, that doesn't mean you should park it on the couch for a few days in between your workouts. It simply means that each weight lifting should not consist of set after set after set. Followed by a rest break to talk to that hot receptionist and then back to another twenty sets.

No, you're workouts need to consist of ten-twelve or fewer sets where you are pushing yourself to the MAX. There is no room for sissy, light-weight work in your weight lifting program.

Which brings us to Rule #2:

Muscle Building Meals

Recipes For Building Muscle

My Practical "Lazy Cook" Recipes For Building Muscle! So Easy Even a Caveman Can Make Them...
By Nick Nilsson

Find yourself short on time to cook a good meal? I know I do! Learn my "secret" recipes that are extremely quick and simple to make. I'll give you my favorite muscle-building meals!

If you're like me, you sometimes find yourself short on time to cook yourself a good meal. And if you're also like me, meaning a lazy cook, sometimes the motivation to really make a grand meal is short, too!

So what do you when this happens but you still want to reach your muscle-building goals?

I've got three great "recipes" (and I use the word "recipes" in the loosest sense possible!) to share with you that will help you stay on track towards massing up.

Keep in mind, even though I'm going to inject a little humor into this list, these are examples of actual things you can prepare for yourself to help make your life easier! I just want to show you that decent nutrition doesn't have be dull as dirt or taste like it either.

****
Also it's important to note, I'm NOT a nutritionist And I don't claim to be! So PLEASE don't make a gigantic vat of mashed potatoes then complain because you're diabetic and your blood sugar is so high that you're sweating maple syrup. These recipes are for "entertainment purposes only," so if you DO follow them, personal responsibility is the keyword here! :)
****

These recipes are simple to make, don't take long to cook and are geared to my own personal skill level of cooking, which is boiling, microwaving, toasting (in a toaster, not one of them fancy toaster oven things), some basic fry pan work and ripping open packages like a starving raccoon...

With these recipes, I'm not going to include salads. You're on your own with those. Personally, I eat them as often as I can (and you should too!), taking advantage of the convenient prepackaged salad bags from the store, throwing in some grape tomatoes, almonds, broccoli, carrots and whatever else is in the fridge that looks like it might go well in a salad and isn't TOO far past the date. Add some healthy dressing (on a side note, salsa is actually surprisingly good on salad) and voila! You're good to go.

Getting plenty of vegetables is also important - rather than force my personal vegetable preferences onto you (which are broccoli, snap peas, carrots, and chocolate covered almonds) just make the effort to eat vegetables as much as you can every day. Fresher and less processed is better, as is organic, but just do the best you can with that. You would have to REALLY go to town to eat TOO many vegetables so don't be shy with them.

I'm also a big fan of taking vitamin and mineral supplements because no matter how "balanced" your diet appears to be, food is so depleted of nutrients right from the start these days that you're probably not getting nearly as many nutrients as you think you are from your food.

Let me put it this way, I'd rather have "expensive urine" (many doctors seem to think this is all you'll get from taking vitamins) than a debilitating illness caused by simple vitamin and mineral deficiencies that I then have to take expensive drugs to basically just mask the symptoms of.

But I digress...

To make best use of these recipes for those short on time, Tupperware will be your best friend. Make a LOT when you DO make something and save the rest for later. It's great to make things fresh but it's also great to just sling something you made yesterday into the microwave and eat it again (and again after that, if you made a WHOLE LOT!). It'll save you from eating cereal three meals a day (not that I've ever done THAT, of course...).

Serving sizes are totally up to you. I usually eat the majority of what I make then save some for the next day, especially if it's a post-workout meal.

So let's get into those muscle building recipes...

Want to test out a sample of the new Muscle Explosion program?

Let me tell you, the response to Nick Nilsson's new "Muscle
Explosion" program has surprised even me! Apparently, there is
a real HUNGER for a new approach to muscle and strength-building!

This book takes proven training methods and applies them in a
VERY unique fashion...all designed to CHANGE your physiology
to better support growth and strength!

Let me put it this way...using this program is like building a
house WITH blueprints instead of just randomly throwing up walls
and beams! Because when you have a blueprint that takes you
through every step of the process, you KNOW you will succeed.

And success means bigger muscles for you...FAST.

I'm going to keep this update short and sweet - if you haven't
had a chance to check out the book yet, definitely do that
right now!

http://offto.net/muscle/

But I also wanted to let you know that Nick is also offering
a complimentary SAMPLE of the book, too!

That way, you can check out some of the information inside and
see if this program is a good fit for you.

In the sample course, here are some of the things you'll learn...

- one of THE most effective strength and muscle-building
techniques I've EVER discovered. It is just CRAZY how well
(and how FAST!) it works.

- how eating NO protein can actually FORCE your body to PILE on
the muscle mass

- an amazing new bicep exercise that will simply TRASH your arms and
set the stage for HUGE growth

This is good stuff that you take to the gym with you and actually
try out. That way, you KNOW it'll work when you use it in the
full program!

Here's the link to go sign up for your sample:

http://offto.net/sample/

Check it out now! The clock is ticking on the special launch
price but don't worry...Nick has decided to EXTEND the deadline
on that until Monday (Oct 29th) at midnight to give you a chance
to get through the whole course and test out the samples.

If you're interested at all in building more muscle, you're going
LOVE the very first day of the course. It's a phenomenal muscle-
building technique that works almost like MAGIC completely on
it's own even outside of any program...

But, of course, it works that much BETTER when you use it within
the full "Muscle Explosion" program that sets it up like a
volleyball so you can SPIKE it HARD and get maximum results
from it!

Here's that sign-up link again:

http://offto.net/sample/

Enjoy the course!

Art Breshears
www.rxsportz.com  

P.S. In this course, you're going to get some VERY unconventional
training, nutrition and exercise information. Quite frankly, it
will challenge some of the most set-in-stone training foundations
you know!

When you learn how to do HEAVY weight with VERY LITTLE rest in
between sets and make HUGE increases in strength, keep an open
mind and give it a try.

When you learn how not eating ANY protein can set up a DESPARATE
NEED in your body to build muscle, take a few minutes to mull it
over and the let the logic play out.

Because when you DO put it all together in the full program where
one part builds onto the next part and AMPLIFIES it's effects...
let's just say the results will ASTONISH you.

Ryan Lee, premier success coach, has written a new book called: The Millionaire Workout. No one on the planet is more qualified to teach you how to dramatically fatten your wallet while thinning your waist at the same time. Ryan went from a gym teacher in the Bronx barely scraping by to a superfit millionaire.

It hasn't been released yet, but if you want to see for yourself what all the buzz is about and download a complimentary chapter, then click here:

Break all the training "rules" and gain 10 lbs of muscle in 28 days...

Don't Let Genetics Slow Down YOUR Muscle Growth!

Learn How Breaking Almost ALL The "Rules" of Training Will SLAM the Muscle Onto Your Body...Even ADVANCED Trainers Can Gain 10 Pounds of RAW MUSCLE In Just 28 Days!

Because with the right training and eating, you can DRAMATICALLY CHANGE your body's physiology and set the stage for EXPLOSIVE increases in muscle mass and strength, piling MORE SLABS of thick, lean mass onto your frame than would NORMALLY even be possible with conventional training...

********************

You go to the gym to build muscle...

You're not there to "tone up" or waste your time at the juice bar...

You bust your tail at the gym to load PILES of muscle onto your body...thick, meaty pecs, a back so wide you could show a movie on it, biceps that jump out in eye-popping peaks, legs like tree trunks...

You know what I mean...

...you want to build the kind of muscle that TURNS HEADS when you walk down the street...

...and you want the kind of STRENGTH that makes all your friends and family think of YOU as a HUMAN FORKLIFT when it's time to move heavy furniture...

But my question to you is this...and I want you to think about this honestly...is the program you're currently using GETTING YOU THERE?

Is it helping you build 5 to 10 lbs of lean muscle PER MONTH...EVERY MONTH (even in advanced trainers!)?

What if there was a new program that COULD help you do that?

Sound interesting?

I thought so...

The program I'm talking about is the newest book from Nick Nilsson, "Muscle Explosion! 28 Days to Maximum Mass." And it is going SET YOUR GROWTH ON FIRE.

Believe me, I've had a chance to review an advance copy of it and this is one POWERFUL program...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Click this link to check it out now or keep reading to learn more!
http://offto.net/muscle/
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Because even if you THINK you've got TERRIBLE genetics for building muscle...

Even if you THINK you've REACHED your genetic limits for muscle growth...

This program WILL work for you.

It will work because you're going to attack muscle growth at it's most BASIC level...you won't be just training your muscles...THAT will only get you so far.

I'm talking about training and maximizing ALL the internal SYSTEMS in your body that make muscle growth itself POSSIBLE!

The "Muscle Explosion" program is a revolutionary concept in training.

Rather than haphazardly doing sets and exercises in hopes that something will result in bigger muscles...rather than calculating percentages and tables trying to figure out what weights to use to try and squeeze just one more ounce of growth out...

You are instead going to take a whole NEW approach...and it's an approach that will pay off BIG (as you'll soon see when you start having to buy new clothes because you keep STRETCHING your old ones to SHREDS with new size).

You see, when you hear people talking about their "genetic limitations" for muscle-building, what they're REALLY talking about (without really even knowing it!) are their PHYSIOLOGICAL
limitations for muscle-building.

To really explain this, I want you to think of your body as a city...

In order to grow, your city needs infrastructure (like water, sewer and electricity, which is like your bones, connective tissue and blood circulation) to support new construction (i.e. new muscle).

So what happens when you start putting up buildings without also improving the infrastructure to keep up?

Your city may TRY to grow but it CAN'T. The infrastructure WILL NOT SUPPORT IT.

See the parallel? You may be using THE most effective MUSCLE-building training on the planet, but if your body can't physiologically SUPPORT that new muscle, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. It CAN'T grow. Or if it DOES grow, your body then does everything it can to get RID of that extra muscle that's putting a drain on the system!

It's not necessarily because your genetics stink...it's because your body's systems have not been OPTIMIZED to HOLD and SUPPORT that extra muscle tissue.

And THAT is where "Muscle Explosion" takes over.

- It takes POWERFUL muscle-building training and sets it up with DIRECT training of the physiological systems that support muscle tissue and growth.

- It uses targeted nutritional techniques to hit your body with a RAGING FLOOD of hormones that will send your muscle-making machinery into OVERDRIVE.

Your body will be able to deliver more nutrients faster...it will be able to support more weight more easily...it will be hit with an EXPLOSION of growth-producing hormones...

And it will have ALL the tools it needs to TRULY maximize the amount of muscle mass you're able to carry.

This program takes you by the hand, tells you what to do every step of the way, and then gives you the SOLID KICK IN THE PANTS that you NEED to REALLY take your physique to the limit!

When you click on the following link, you're going to learn FIVE of THE MOST POWERFUL "genetics shattering" training and nutritional techniques that I've got in my arsenal.

On this page, you're going to learn about the very same techniques Nick used on himself to gain 35 POUNDS of bodyweight (with very minimal fat gain!) in a little more than 4 months.

** And 35 POUNDS is what he gained while he was JUST TESTING the program. Much of that wasn't even using the FINAL, MOST POWERFUL version of the program! **

You're also going to learn how to BREAK ALL THE RULES of muscle-building and DESTROY any growth plateaus you've hit. You will be AMAZED at what this training looks like...and what it'll do for you!

Here is that link...

http://offto.net/muscle/

And one final word...Nick wanted to get this information into the hands of as many serious trainers as possible. So, to celebrate the launch of his new program, the price right now is absolutely DIRT-CHEAP (just $27! I told him he's INSANE for letting it go this cheap).

But the price will GO UP on Friday, Oct 26th at midnight.

So if you want a program that will SLAM the muscle onto your body and build HUMAN-FORKLIFT STRENGTH, DEFINITELY check it out now...

P.S. Remember, you CAN change your physiology through targeted training and nutrition and set your body up for a MASSIVE SURGE in muscle. This program will show you how. But to get the best deal, you need to act now!
