Muscle Building Weight Training Exercises

The Top Ten Weight Training Exercises for Building Muscle
By Jason Ferruggia

1) Deadlift- Not many weight training exercises work as many muscle groups and build muscle as fast as the deadlift. The neck, traps, upper, middle, and lower back, glutes, hamstrings, quads, biceps, forearms, and abs are all utilized in the deadlift. No other exercise is a better test of overall body power. While uninformed people always ask, "how much can you bench," the question they really should ask is, "how much can you deadlift?" A deadlift is the most basic exercise anyone can do. Bending down and picking a weight up off the floor is the one weight training exercise that mimics everyday real life situations. Most people will rarely find themselves on their back needing to push a heavyweight off their chest but everyone has to bend down and pick things up. If you could only do one exercise to build muscle this would be the one to do.

2) Squat- The squat has been known for years as the "king of all muscle building exercises" and for good reason. I'm not talking about sissy boy half squats either; I'm talking about real below parallel, full squats. If you don't at least break parallel it's not a squat. Like deadlifts, squats involve an enormous amount of muscle mass and stimulate the release of anabolic hormones such as testosterone. This is great for building muscle fast. The squat is probably the most revered exercise among serious lifters and the power rack is considered our sacred ground. If you ever want to develop any kind of real lower body strength and build muscle fast, you have no choice but to squat.

3) Chin up- Not many exercises will build muscle in the upper body like chin ups. Known as the upper body squat, chins stimulate nearly every muscle from the traps down to the abdominals. Any exercise that allows you to move your body through space as opposed to moving a weight or fixed implement around you has a much higher degree of neuromuscular activation, and therefore a much greater potential to elicit gains in size and strength. Look at the development of male gymnasts and you will see for yourself what years of chin ups and dips can do for the upper body. If you want to build muscle fast, be sure to include chin ups in your weight training program.

4) Parallel Bar Dip- A close second to chin ups as one of the best upper body exercises for building muscle fast, and for all the same reasons. If you want big arms you had better include dips in your training program. No other weight training exercise will add slabs of muscle to the triceps as effectively as dips. A huge chest and enormous pair of front delts are also a pleasant side effect that comes with regularly performing this outstanding muscle building exercise.

5) Hang Clean & Push Press- A total body muscle building exercise which hits the calves, hamstrings, glutes, quads, lower and upper back, traps, shoulders, biceps, triceps, and forearms. Although it is, by definition, an Olympic lift, it can be done in more of a strict manner to really target the traps, upper back, and shoulders. When done in this manner, it is not performed solely with the intention of developing explosive speed like most Olympic lifts are performed. Doing the clean and push press in this manner is a form of power bodybuilding and will really blow up the traps and shoulders. If you could only pick one weight training exercise for building muscle, this might be the one. It’s a shame you don’t see this in more bodybuilding programs.

6) Bench Press- This is one of the three powerlifting exercises and along with Military Presses, is the greatest of all pressing movements for building muscle in the upper body. When looking at the effectiveness of an exercise, the questions to be asked are what will allow the lifter to use the most weight and what exercise involves the most muscle mass. The bench press meets both of these prerequisites and besides being incredibly effective as a muscle building exercise, it is one of the best measures of upper body power.

7) Military Press- Also known as the front press, this was once considered the number one measure of upper body power and was the premier muscle building exercise for the upper body. In the old days of strength training most people didn't even do bench presses; every weight training exercise was done standing up. Bench pressing was looked down upon as a show lift and real men only did overhead presses to build muscle. Bench pressing took over with the development of powerlifting and bodybuilding and the military press took a back seat. It is still however, a great measure of upper body power and should be done by anyone interested in building an impressive set of shoulders and building overall muscle mass throughout the upper body. Even though some uninformed doctors will have you believe that overhead pressing can be dangerous, old time strong men argue that there would not be as many shoulder injuries as there are today if the military press had remained the upper body weight training exercise of choice. Equally effective variations of the military press include the push press, push jerk and split jerk.

8) Bent Over Rows- When it comes to building muscle in the upper back and lats, bent over rows are hard to beat. This weight training exercise can be performed many different ways; palms up, palms down, wide grip, close grip, to the abdomen, to the sternum, with an ez bar or with a straight bar. However you do them, nothing will develop thickness in the back like rows will, and anyone who has been involved with bodybuilding for a while will tell you there is nothing more impressive than a well developed back, muscular back.

9) Good Mornings- Although they are a rarely performed weight training exercise by a large majority of bodybuilders, good mornings remain one of the staples of a good size and strength gaining program. Powerlifters seem to be the only ones who know about the muscle building properties of this outstanding exercise. The reason this muscle building exercise is often avoided is that good mornings are brutally hard work. But that hard work brings huge rewards. Good mornings will build muscle fast and pack tons of size on your lower back, glutes, and hamstrings. They are also one of the best weight training exercises to help improve your squat and deadlift, which is the main reason they are a mainstay in powerlifting.

10) Pushup- Yes, you read that right, I said pushups are one of the best weight training exercises to build muscle fast. For a beginner pushups are the absolute best muscle building exercise to do for the pecs, delts, and triceps. However, as you make progress and get stronger pushups become too easy and are usually forgotten about. That is a huge mistake. There are several varieties of pushups that can be used by intermediate and advanced lifters such as elevated pushups on pushup handles, dumbbells, or chairs. Pushups can also be done on gymnastic rings hanging from chains and suspended a foot or so above the ground to make them even more challenging. When either of these versions of this awesome muscle building exercise becomes too easy you can have a partner hold weight on your back, use a weighted vest or even drape heavy chains across your back. If you are looking for more variety, Hindu pushups are another great version of this exercise and can sometimes humble even the strongest of men.

So there you have it, the best weight training exercises for building muscle fast. All the food and supplements and drugs in the world are worthless if you train like a Nancy boy. Machines and isolation movements are as effective as running on a treadmill when it comes to getting big and strong. Stick with the weight training exercises above; make them a staple in your training, and start saving up for a new wardrobe. Its time to build muscle fast!

Muscle Building Nutrition

Muscle Building Nutrition
By Jason Ferruggia

It has been said that nutrition is responsible for 80% of your muscle building results. I think that is dramatically overstating it but nutrition is critically important to your muscle building efforts. Without proper nutrition you will never build the physique you desire. Below are a few easy to follow nutrition rules that will help you get bigger and leaner. Follow these rules and you will reach your goals, ignore them and you could be in for years of frustration.

• Eat every 2-3 hours. Doing this keeps your body in an anabolic state and keeps your metabolism running along at high speeds so that you don’t get fat. If you need 3,000 calories per day to build muscle, it is much more effective to have five 600 calorie meals or six five hundred calorie meals than it is to have three big 1,000 calorie meals. Doing that leads to fat accumulation and also has you going too long without eating which only leads to muscle loss.

• Build your meals around a base of lean protein. Protein is what builds muscle, so every time you sit down to eat you should be consuming some kind of protein. That should be the main focus of each meal. Once you have that covered you can add in starchy carbs, vegetables and good fats. As far as daily protein requirements go, you should shoot for one gram per pound of bodyweight per day. The only time you would need more than this is when you are dieting and your carbs are extremely low.

• Eat vegetables at every meal except breakfast. Not only are vegetables incredibly healthy because they provide tons of nutrients and fiber but they also slow down the absorption of your meals leading to less bodyfat accumulation.

• Eat organic foods whenever possible. There is so much artificial crap in the food we eat these days that it is really a very wise decision to eat organic as often as you can. This includes meats, fruits, veggies and grains.

• Avoid sugars, artificial sweeteners and saturated fats as much as possible. The consumption of sugar and saturated fat is what leads to numerous health problems and diseases. Too much saturated fat and sugar consumption also leads to inflammation in the body and can actually worsen nagging injuries and lead to other aches and pains. Many people actually notice a reduction in back pain once they cut saturated fat and sugar from their diet. Some saturated fat in meats is ok from time to time, but you should really try to cut out the sugar and artificial sweeteners. Although they don’t talk about it much in this country there is plenty of evidence that artificial sweeteners are not the least bit healthy.

• Eat most of your carbs at breakfast and immediately before and after your workout. Those are the times when your insulin sensitivity is highest and when you will use carbs most efficiently with the least risk for body fat gain. Don’t be scared to eat carbs at this time because most of them will be used for building muscle and will not usually add to body fat accumulation.

• Drink at least a half gallon of water per day. Doing this keeps you well hydrated which keeps your performance levels high. Even a slight drop in hydration will cause a drop in performance. A half gallon is a good start but a gallon is usually better, especially in the summer.

• Pay strict attention to your sodium intake. When I say that I mean it in the opposite way that most people and doctors would think I mean it. I mean that you must be sure that your sodium intake is adequate. This is especially true for athletes who play in the summer time when it’s hot out and you are sweating a lot. Without adequate sodium intake, your performance can suffer drastically. Adequate sodium levels also help to maintain strength levels while dieting.

Muscle Building Tips

The Top Ten Muscle Building Tips
By Jason Ferruggia

1. Lift weights for no more than three to four days per week. Doing so is not only unnecessary but can quickly lead to over-training, especially if you are doing other physical activities such as cardio or playing recreational sports on a regular basis.

2. Limit your workouts to 30-45 minutes and 15-20 total sets. If you can't build muscle and gain strength in that time frame then I’d say you are half assing it. You have to remember that results are greatest when energy levels and mental focus are at their highest. That is during the first 30-45 minutes of your workout. Going beyond that point causes both of these to plummet.

3. Use big, compound exercises and lift heavy. Deadlifts, military presses, squats, bench presses, rows and chin ups should always be the main focus of your muscle building workout programs. These have been the best muscle building exercises since the beginning of time and that will never change.

4. Continually try to get stronger and always track your progress with a training journal. Progressive overload is the most basic but often forgotten principle in weight training. It states that to make progress you need to constantly increase the amount of weight you lift. Follow this rule and you will get bigger and stronger. Ignore it and you will get nowhere. If you are benching 225 right now, you better be benching 315 by this time next year if you want to build muscle.

5. Train with a multitude of rep ranges. Doing this allows you to target both slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibers and maximizes your muscle building capabilities. Reps from 1-20 should be used to target both fast twitch and slow twitch fibers.

6. Always change your weight training program every 3-4 weeks. After 3-4 weeks on the same program you will start to burn out and your results will slow down. To keep your body in a muscle building state, be sure to change your workouts frequently. If you have been lifting for several years, this may need to be done every two weeks because you will adapt more rapidly to the same stimulus.

7. Make a serious commitment to eating. Proper nutrition plays a huge role in your muscle building efforts. Without adequate calories you will never grow optimally. Force feed yourself if you have to and be sure to time your carbs correctly, meaning around training and at breakfast, while cutting them out at night if you want to stay lean while building muscle.

8. Be sure to get at least 8-10 hours of sleep per day and take naps whenever possible. When you are sleeping is when you are building muscle. Sleep is the time when you recover and grow. Without adequate sleep you will never reach your true potential and your muscle building efforts in the gym may be wasted. Do not overlook this important factor.

9. Utilize recovery methods. Training and eating properly are not enough to ensure the fastest muscle building results. You also have to be sure to use whatever recovery methods you can to accelerate your progress. Some of these include taking contrast showers or baths after training, stretching after training and on off days, icing, using foam rollers and whatever else you can think of to help you recover faster.

10. Find a good training partner. While I left this for last on the list it may, in fact, be the most important factor of them all. Without a good training partner your results will always be less than what they could be. It is imperative that you try to find someone to push you and to compete against if you really want to take your muscle building efforts to the next level.

Mental Secrets to the Perfect Weight

If you are having problems with losing weight (we know sticking to a diet can be difficult), then this message will be the most important message you will ever read.

Here's why:

A major-league weight loss psychotherapist, Dr. Roberta Temes, has finally decided to publish the same sessions she uses with celebrities and other VIP New York clients.

These hypnosis sessions allow them to follow the advice of their dieticians almost effortlessly, even with their hectic schedules.

She has had great success in working with people who have problems following their eating and exercise plans . . . the plans that they KNOW they need to use in order to get to and
maintain their ideal weights.

Although she has worked with some celebrities we cannot name, she has also helped normal people finally gain control over cravings that they never believed they would overcome.

Ann Carlo from Sag Harbor, New York is an example:


"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! Can't convince me that
this system does not operate on some level . . . even though
you're not always conscious of it at the time."


Dr. Temes is on the Department of Psychiatry at the SUNY Health Science Center Medical School, so everything she does is based on research and not "pop" psychology.

This is not the typical weight loss program that you might be used to seeing. It is not a "diet" or a "workbook" and it won't try to psychoanalyze you with a bunch of "inner child" mumbo-jumbo.

It is straight clinical hypnosis from the author of Medical Hypnosis, the first hypnosis textbook used in medical schools.

Here are some of the amazing things you will learn when you go through Dr. Temes' seven-session program:

* How to stop your cravings instantaneously, allowing you to stop binging before you start.
* How to get off the diet roller coaster. (Learn how to move from being a "dieter" to being someone who is permanently healthy.)
* How to create new neural pathways that empower you to replace unhealthy eating habits with healthy ones.
* Why willpower will not work long term, and how to create effortless motivation.
* How to eliminate your desire for sodas and replace them with a craving for WATER!

And that's just a tiny fraction of what you'll learn how to do in this 4-CD audio program.

The best part about this program is that it uses hypnosis, so there are no guidebooks or things you are supposed to do later. All you do is spend 15 minutes a day listening to the sessions and the changes start to happen. Most people notice a dramatic change within just 21 days!

This program comes with an iron-clad 1 YEAR no-questions-asked money back guarantee, and it's easy to order.

Best of all, because it is so important to your health that you get this program, Fitness and Health Tips has negotiated a special deal for you.

This offer, which includes the complete Enjoying Weight Loss 4-CD program and over $75 of valuable bonuses, will cost you less than $100. But only if you order in the next week, or until supplies run out.

To your health,
Michael Lovitch
Co-Founder, Hypnosis Network

P.S. This program is recommended by doctors,trainers, and dieticians who use it to help their clients with diet adherence:

"I have been using the Enjoying Weight Loss
program with my patients who tell me they don't even think
about 'bad' food anymore . . . it's just a fact in their
mind. They find it easy to change self-destructive behavior
and 'stay with the program' that I recommend. This has
always been my biggest challenge as a clinician."

Arm Exercises

How to Get Huge Arms
By Jason Ferruggia

Everyone who ever picks up a weight soon develops the desire for a set of massive arms. It’s nearly unavoidable. Within a week after their first workout most guys are start for searching the secrets of how to get huge arms during every spare moment they have. Nearly everybody loves to stretch their shirt sleeves or even cut them off. Unfortunately, many people go about their arm training all wrong. One of the biggest mistakes you can make when training for big arms is using the wrong exercises. Kickbacks and concentration curls will do very little to develop a set of impressive guns. If you really want to know how to get huge arms, use my top ten biceps exercises and your arms will be exploding with new growth in no time.

Close Grip Chin Up- This is the king of biceps exercises because it allows you to use the most weight and move your body through space. Any time you can move your body through space, instead of just moving your limbs, there is a higher level of neuromuscular activation which leads to greater muscular development.

Barbell Curl- As far as isolation movements go, this is the best one there is when it comes to building big biceps.

Dumbbell Curl- Another isolation movement that is nearly the equivalent to the barbell curl. The added advantage is that when you can no longer complete another rep you can stop doing them simultaneously and switch to alternate curls to cheat a few more reps out.

Incline Dumbbell Curl- The added stretch here makes this a very effective bicep building exercise.

Hammer Curl- These target the brachialis muscle, which, when developed, can add a great deal of mass and thickness to the upper arm.

Parallel Bar Dip- You wanna know how to get huge arms? Train your triceps hard. Although everyone focuses on the biceps, the triceps actually make up 2/3 of the upper arm and can really make your arms look enormous if you train them properly.

When it comes to proper triceps training, there is no better exercise than the parallel bar dip. Again, this is an exercise where you are moving your body through space instead of just moving your limbs. If you need proof of the effectiveness of dips you need to look no further than the incredible arm development of male gymnasts.

Close Grip Bench- This is another compound movement which will pack slabs of muscle on the triceps as it allows you to use a ton of weight.

Half Range Close Grip Bench Press aka Lockouts- This exercise is done by setting the pins in the power rack so that they stop the bar about a third of the way down from the top. This greatly overloads the triceps and allows you to use extremely heavy loads. The end result is that you will build huge horseshoe triceps.

Angled Bar Pushdown- I prefer the angled bar to the straight bar for pushdowns because it is much less stressful on the wrists and much more comfortable to handle heavy weights with. This is a highly effective isolation movement which is pretty easy on the elbows; a rarity for isolated triceps exercises.

EZ Bar Lying Triceps Extensions- This is another highly effective isolation exercise for the triceps. Unfortunately, this exercise can lead to elbow problems. For this reason it should be used less frequently than the others and the reps should be kept a bit higher; preferably in the 8-15 range.

Stop wasting your time with any arm exercises that are not on this list, immediately. Use those listed above and hit them hard and heavy. You won’t be asking anything else about how to get huge arms if you do that.

Build Lean Muscle

How to Build Lean Muscle at a Mind Blowing Rate
By Jason Ferruggia

What is the most important thing I can do at the gym to ensure that I will continually build lean muscle?

It’s very simple. The most important thing you can do each and every single time you go to the gym if you want to build muscle is to try to set a PR (personal record) on every lift you do. That’s it. What this means is that you should always be trying do either do more reps with the same weight (within reason, any sets above 12 on most upper body exercises and 15-20 reps on lower body exercises will do nothing to stimulate muscle growth) or more weight for the same number of reps. Doing the same thing that you have done in a previous workout will do absolutely nothing to help you build lean muscle. The first time you apply a new stress to the body it will adapt by building itself up bigger and stronger. But when it faces that exact same stress again the next time, it will be prepared for it and thus will not adapt again. This is why you have to go up in either weight or reps and try to set a new PR.

Powerlifters and weightlifters continually try to set PR’s in contests. They also do this in training by testing their one rep maxes every few weeks or months. But setting PR’s does not have to be relegated to singles. You should try to set six rep PR’s, ten rep PR’s and twenty rep PR’s. If you are really serious about your desire to build lean muscle, you always have to be improving. To do this you have to keep detailed records of everything you do in a training journal and always look back at it so you have a goal to shoot for at every workout and on every set you do.

If you really want to build lean muscle, no set should ever be done without the goal of setting a PR. The only exceptions are prehab exercises and times when you are rehabbing from an injury. If you continually try to set PR’s on everything you do it gives your workout a much greater purpose and meaning. Not only that but it is a thousand times more fun than just mindlessly going through the motions trying to get a pump. Suddenly your workout becomes something that has quantifiable results that can be measured each and every single time you set foot in the gym. What could be more motivating than that? Chasing PR’s also eliminates all the useless junk volume that most people end up doing after they have finished their main exercises.

Even if you start your workout with big exercises like chin ups and military presses and set new eight rep PR’s on those, it doesn’t mean that when you get to the little exercises and the end like hammer curls and pushdowns that should forget the principle and just do whatever it takes to get a pump. On the contrary, you should still be trying to set a new eight, ten or twelve rep PR on both of those exercises as well.

Forget about adding more sets, decreasing your rest periods and supersetting for a while because none of those approaches will ever help you build lean muscle at a mind blowing rate. If you want to really ramp up the speed at which you build lean muscle and strength, start trying to set PR’s on every lift you do and get ready to be blown away by the results you achieve and how much more enjoyable your training will become.

Lose All The Weight You Want

Is your brain keeping you from being thin?

I just read a pretty mind-blowing report. It's on the psychology behind why it is so hard to win the battle of the bulge.

I didn't realize all of the things in modern society that make it so difficult for us to do a simple thing like control the portion sizes of what we eat. And you know that controlling the portion sizes of what you eat is one of the most important things you can do for your health (and your looks!).

The author, Dr. Roberta Temes, is on the faculty of the Psychiatry Department in the Medical School of the SUNY Health Science Center.

Strategies in this report are based on research, not just the intuition of the author as you will find in most books or reports discussing the psychology of this difficult issue. What I am saying is that this isn't the normal ''pop psychology'' stuff you see in all of the magazines - it's the real deal.

In this report, for example, Dr. Temes gives you a strategy that can reduce your portion sizes by up to 73% without you noticing the difference.

You will also learn how restaurants are overfeeding you and your children (and how to protect yourself), why variety is NOT ''the spice of life,'' and how to create meals that will leave YOU in control.

There are 20 strategies in all, and I'll bet at least 15 of them will be new to you!

I asked the publisher if they would provide this report at no cost to my readers for a certain amount of time, and to my surprise they agreed. I think they know that after reading this report, you'll want to try out the products they actually charge for!

That is all up to you, but this report at no cost is a no-brainer.

To Your Health,

Training To Failure

Does Training To Failure Help Increase Muscle Mass?
By Jason Ferruggia

Training to failure has long been a much debated subject amongst fitness professionals. Many experts tell you that if you really want to increase muscle mass you have to go to failure on each and every set you do while others will warn you to avoid training to failure at all costs. At different points in my career I have been on both sides of this fence as I am continually experimenting with more efficient ways of getting bigger and stronger.

Years ago I recommended that everyone go to failure on a regular basis if their goal was to rapidly increase muscle mass. I knew that hard work and high intensity were needed to bring about dramatic improvements in size and strength. This worked out incredibly well when I was training all of my clients with low volume workouts. Eventually I got away from low volume and started experimenting with a slightly higher approach for various reasons. The problem, however, is that you can’t train with high volume and high intensity. When you are doing a large number of sets there is absolutely no way you can take each of them to failure without severely burning yourself out.

After realizing this I immediately started advising all of my clients against going to failure. I told everyone to stop their sets with a rep or two left in the tank but not to ever take it all the way to a point of momentary muscular failure.

This worked fairly well but the fact remains that everyone who is serious about training, and really wants to increase muscle mass rapidly loves to train HARD! So what was happening was people were ignoring my advice and continuing to go to failure on at least 80-90% of their sets. The honest truth is that I ALWAYS go to failure, or very close to it, no matter what volume of training I am using. I don’t know any other way to train and could never stand to give it less than 100% effort when I’m in the gym. To me, and everyone I know who lives to lift heavy weights, that way of training is a lot more fun than going in and trying to hold back. I don’t want to hold anything back, I want to lay it all on the table and give it all I have.

Because of this fact I have steadily lowered my training volume recommendations over the last few years. Nowadays I rarely ever advise doing more than 12 sets per workout if your goal is to increase muscle mass. When you keep your volume this low you can train as hard as you want and safely go to failure on every set without ever worrying about frying your CNS or overtraining. This makes your workouts more fun and more productive. Not to mention, shorter, for all of you who are pressed for time.

When I say you can go to failure on every set I mean that the set should end when you can no longer complete another rep in good form. I don’t want you to literally fail in the middle of a rep as this can be potentially dangerous, especially if you do it on a squat or a bench press when you don’t have a spotter around. What I want you to do is work as hard as you can but stop the set after you grind out one last slow, brutal rep that requires all the effort you can muster without causing yourself to have a nervous breakdown or having your eyeballs pop out of your head. At that point the set is over; do not attempt another rep because that is when you get into overtraining territory.

That’s all there is to it. Remember, low volume plus high intensity is the exact formula needed to increase muscle mass rapidly.

Side-To-Side Barbell Shoulder Presses

Secret Training Tip #964 - Side-To-Side Barbell Shoulder Presses For Building Shoulder Width and Explosive Power!
By Nick Nilsson

If your shoulders need a change of pace...if standard barbell or dumbell presses just aren't doing it for you have GOT to try this exercise. A simple change in how you hold and lift the bar will set your delts on FIRE!

If you're like me, shoulders are one of your toughest bodyparts to develop. So I've to develop effective ways to really hit my shoulders HARD and get the best results possible.
This exercise is one of my favorites for building strength and explosive power in the shoulders. I've found it to be VERY effective for hitting the lateral delts as well, which is critical for building shoulder width.

How To Do It:

To perform this exercise, you'll need a barbell and a power rack. That's it!

Instead of pressing the barbell from inside the rack, though, and taking a "traditional" grip on the bar, you will be standing OUTSIDE the rack on one side, facing in. You'll be pressing ONE END of the bar, using the other end as a pivot point.

** Don't worry! ** I'll have a link to pictures and video of this exercise in action at the end of the article so you'll know EXACTLY what you're doing before trying it out.

First, you'll need to set one of the safety rails up near the top of the rack - about forehead level is good. The other rail should be set at just about shoulder height.

Set an Olympic barbell across these rails so that it's sloping down to one side. Load the high end of the barbell with at least one weight plate (45 or 35 lbs) to counterbalance the end you'll be pressing.

Load the lower end of the bar with weight - start with a weight that is fairly light (if you can do dumbell presses with 50 lb dumbells, start with just a 45 lb plate on the bar) until you get an idea of how the exercise works. THEN you can start adding plates. Also, be VERY sure you've got good collars on BOTH ends of the bar - you don't want any plates sliding off.

Now you're ready to start the exercise.

Stand at the low end of the bar (outside the rack) facing in towards the rack. Grip the end of the bar with both hands (not overlapping but butted up so they're right BESIDE each other on the end of the bar). One will be closer to the end than the other - you can switch that grip on the next set to keep things even.

Stand a little off to one side to start with here. When you do the exercise, you're basically going to be doing a press with one hand (using the other hand for guidance and balance), bringing the bar up and overhead then lowering it down on the other side. Then you'll repeat, going back over to the other side.

This is why I call it the "Side-To-Side Shoulder Press." You start with, for example, a left-hand one-arm press, bringing the bar overhead and across then performing a right-hand one-arm press. You go back and forth until you've done as many reps as you can.

When you're doing the press (especially at the bottom of the movement), be careful to use the other hand primarily for guidance and balance, NOT to try and pull up on the bar for help. That other shoulder will be in an awkward position to exert force and you don't want to risk injury.

If you want to REALLY finish off the shoulders (I like to do this on my last set), when you're done with the side-to-side movement, you can continue with a two-arm press directly to the front.

Getting Ripped

Bodybuilding Cutting Exercises Don't Work For Getting Ripped
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

If you do a lot of cardio trying to get ripped, you are wasting your time. Same with high repetition sets. High repetition sets do not get you cut or ripped.

This is a myth, and there's a much better way to sculpt your body, get ripped, and finally achieve the elusive 6-pack.

But again, let me repeat, you won't succeed with high-repetition sets using light weights. And don't even worry about the "pump", but that's another article for another day.

Getting ripped is all about nutrition and intensity. We want to be able to see our well-earned muscles and our 6-pack abs.

And that's why we get lured into the belief of the cutting exercises. Because it causes a burn in our muscles, we generally think, hey, this must be burning fat. But it's not! It's just a fatiguing sensation.

If you are using a high-rep, cutting program, I doubt you are getting the results you want. You don't need to be in the gym too long.

There is a better way to burn fat. A faster way. And a smarter way. It doesn't involve "toning" workouts or "Cutting exercises". What you need to do for fat loss, and getting cut, is to focus on the same exercises that helped you build muscle in the first place.

So forget the pec-dec, and stick with dumbell presses. Say goodbye to leg extensions, and keep using squats and lunges. Next up is the shocker! Use intervals to cut fat fast!

Instead, we'll use interval training to burn fat and boost our metabolism in less than half the time as a normal cardio workout. Only 20 minutes of interval training done 3 times per week resulted in weight loss in one Australian study.

On the other hand, three 40-minute cardio sessions did not cause any weight loss in the same study. Shocking results, but it just goes to show you the power of intensity.

No more slow boring aerobics. That means saying goodbye to light weights and high reps and long slow cardio. Goodbye, nice to know you! If you want to get ripped muscles, diet hard?

First, you need the proper dietary changes to promote muscle gains and body fat reductions. Nutrition is the most important factor for fat burning and getting cut.

If your nutrition sucks, and you eat fast food or skip meals, you are in big trouble. There is no workout good enough to overcome bad nutrition. Next, focus on multi-muscle strength exercises and finish with interval training to burn more calories out of the gym.

Basic exercises such as squats, pushes, rows, and pulls done for 3-4 sets of 8 repetitions. If you did a squat, a press, and a row in each workout, and then did intervals, you'd get ripped if your nutrition was good. Work hard! Diet harder.

Forget about slow boring cardio. You need to do short burst exercise instead. Consistency is key for getting cut.

Work hard, and diet harder!

Is The Silent Killer Sneaking Up On You?

I’m writing to you today to tell you about a fantastic new electronic manual written about how to lower high blood pressure without costly drug prescriptions or harmful drug side effects.

Some people are literally ticking time bombs in the sense that if they don’t treat their high blood pressure, they face serious negative health consequences in the future. Unfortunately, high blood pressure sneaks up on many people without them knowing…which is why it’s often called “The Silent Killer”.

According to the statistics, 1 out of every 4 US adults has high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure leads to an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and kidney failure. What this means is that, according to the statistics, some of you…reading this right now…face serious health risks as a direct result of having high blood pressure. That greatly saddens me…especially when high blood pressure is treatable. I just hope it’s not YOU. (I’m not telling this to scare the living daylights out of you…just to make you aware.)

Now a lot of marketers and authors try to get me to promote their products to my list. And a lot of pure junk products land on my desk, which I then immediately chuck into the trash. Every now and then, (it is very rare), I run across an electronic guide that is truly a gem that will significantly help you. And that is what I’m recommending today.

This electronic manual called “The Blood Pressure Miracle” is by Frank Mangano, the developer of a unique, all-natural method for dropping your blood pressure.

In my opinion, Frank has a knack for simplifying complex medical concepts and delivering a total, no-nonsense solution that will greatly benefit you. I’ve reviewed his electronic manual and I give it my strongest recommendation.

Listen up: I’d be just plain crazy to stake my sterling reputation on promoting garbage. That’s why I don’t’ do it. I’m not promoting this electronic manual to make a fast buck. I’m promoting this manual because it truly delivers a real-world solution that will help many people worldwide.

Frank told me that he is doing a market test with this electronic manual and he soon plans to raise the price. Well, I told him that I would bring this fantastic manual on lowering blood pressure to this list on one condition – that he must “freeze” the price as a favor to the subscribers and I. At first, he balked. After a little tough negotiating though, I got Frank to agree to keep the price down…for the next 72 hours. He did this as a favor to me. This means that you have to take advantage of this offer right now or risk paying who-knows-what later.

Did I mention Frank offers an unconditional, risk-free 60-day guarantee? He does. I’ve found this guarantee to be very generous.

So here’s what to do now – realize how important this is to eliminate high blood pressure. In fact, you might have high blood pressure right now and not even know it. That’s why I highly recommend you visit his website and invest in his electronic manual.

Click here now to lower your blood pressure:

Stay Healthy,

P.P.S. Frank said he would only guarantee this rock-bottom price as a favor for my subscribers for the next 72 hours. Hurry and check out the website now!

Plateaus - Why Your Fat Loss Stops

Today I'm posting an excerpt from one of two recent teleseminars featuring fat loss excerpt Tom Venuto. Tom had them transcribed and turned into ebooks and MP3 audios that he's actually giving away for free as part of a 3 day special promotion ending February 14th. Go to Burn The Fat for more information on that.

I wanted to share this excerpt from the seminar with you in particular (I got permission from Tom to reprint this). I think you’ll find it fascinating because it explains the real reasons why people hit fat loss plateaus. It happens especially when you get down to that “last 10 lbs” or when you drop a lot of weight, and you hit the “good” body fat category, but you’re an “overachiever” and you still want to get even leaner… all the way to “ripped”, or at least lean enough to see your abs.

Breaking through plateaus is a challenge, but there IS something you can do about them... read on and see what Tom says about it.


QUESTION: "Our first question says, “Tom, I know you often say that to get to the point to be able to see your abs, you need to get to single-digit body fat. What if I hit a plateau at about 12% body fat? What do I need to do to break the plateau and get my fat% down to single digits? Should I do more cardio, more weight-training, manipulate my diet somehow?”

ANSWER: "You could do any of the above. You could manipulate your calories, change type of cardio, add cardio duration or frequency. You could increase cardio intensity. You could change your weight-training. You shouldn’t limit yourself.

One of the problems I see with quite a few programs is that they’re too dogmatic. If you hit a plateau, the person with the most flexibility in their approach is the person who’s going to be most likely to get through that plateau.

The first thing though is to understand what a plateau really is. This is important, because if you were losing weight, but now you’re not, there’s only one thing that that could mean; you were in a calorie deficit but you’re no longer in a calorie deficit.

You may be wondering why that happens.

There are four primary reasons you hit a plateau:

The first reason you hit a plateau is because your metabolism decreases. While this does not completely stop fat loss, it does slow down fat loss. If you’ve been cutting calories, especially if you cut them severely, your body adapts by decreasing the metabolic rate. That’s sometimes known as the “starvation response” or “Adaptive thermogenesis.”

The second reason is that you need fewer calories after you lose weight. Calorie needs are directly tied into your body weight. One problem is that after people lose a lot of weight, they tend to keep eating the same way they were eating when they were heavier.

So they’re feeding a smaller person the way they were when they were a bigger person, but when you’re a smaller person, you don’t need as many calories, even at rest (your basal metabolic rate is lower).

A third reason is that when you move that smaller body, you’re not burning as many calories. If you strap on a weighted vest or heavy backpack and go out and hike up a hill, you can tell, obviously, that if you’re lugging around extra weight, you’re burning more calories. So now can you see why, after you lose weight, you burn fewer calories?

The fourth reason is that most people either cheat on their diets or they forget to record part of their food intake. This one requires a little bit of honesty with yourself. Even if you don’t do it intentionally and you don’t “cheat” per se, unconsciously, we’re all terrible at estimating how much food we eat.

Some studies have even showed underreporting calorie intake as much as 50%. In other words, you say, “I’m only eating 1,200 calories a day, but i’m stuck at a plateau!” but you’re really eating 1,800 calories a day which doesn’t give you much of a deficit.

All of these reasons for plateaus get amplified in the later stages of a diet, because biologically speaking, your body is doing everything it possibly can to get you to go off your diet and to get weight to stabilize.

After a long period of dieting and after a large weight loss, your body cranks up the appetite, stimulates cravings and tries to trick you into eating more.

The leaner you get, the longer youve been dieting and the more aggressively you cut calories, the more your body tends to defend its weight, and hold on to remaining body fat.

So it’s really common to hit that plateau when you’re dieted down and leaner. Usually it’s nowhere near as difficult for the overweight person to start losing weight as it is for the lean person to get even more lean. The last 10 lbs is usually a lot harder than the first 10.

If you think about it, it’s pretty unnatural from a biological perspective to walk around with really low single-digit body fat. It’s not beneficial from a survival-of-the-species point of view to have low body fat. So this metabolic adaptation becomes more pronounced the leaner you get.

you’re also at a higher risk of losing muscle, because extra muscle is not econmical when there’s a calorie shortage. Having extra muscle is like having an engine that’s bigger than you need - It’s like a gas guzzler.

The ultimate answer to why you plateau, why that last 10 pounds is so hard to lose and why it’s hard to break into those single digits is that you were in a calorie deficit but for all of the reasons mentioned above, you’re no longer in deficit.

The way to break the plateau then is to:

(1) re-stimulate metabolism and re-set fat-burning and starvation hormones, and

(2) re-establish the deficit.


The question was, “How do I do that? More cardio, more weight training, manipulate my diet?”

You could do all of the above. Eating less or exercising more can both increase a deficit. But one thing you might want to do first, is give yourself a little break. Take your calories up to maintenance level, maybe for a week.

The idea there is not to try to accelerate fat loss, because what you’re actually doing is removing your calorie deficit for a short period of time. What you’re trying to do is facilitate the fat loss when you jump back into it.

It gives your body a physiological break from the stress of dieting; it resets some of those starvation hormones and stimulates your metabolism so when you go back to the calorie deficit, your body responds again.

You also get mental break from the diet as well, which makes it easier to stick with the program when you go back to it.

You could also use a calorie cycling approach, to help prevent yourself from hitting another plateau, and we already covered calorie and carb cycling in the last call.

I also recommend, because so many people underestimate how much they eat, don’t take any chances. Count your calories, or at least become really aware of the portion sizes and maybe even consider keeping a journal.

You’ve probably been told many times by a lot of different “experts” that you don’t have to count calories. But when you’re in a plateau, I’d recommend that you stop guessing and really get serious about what you’re taking in.

Then what you need to do is reestablish that calorie deficit using every tool at your disposal.

Use nutrition by pulling back your portion sizes. Or use cardio. And by increased cardio, I mean increasing energy expenditure. You could increase your frequency. You could increase your duration.

But increasing energy expenditure is not necessarily doing longer workouts, just burning more calories. You could also take the same amount of time that you’re spending right now and increase your intensity.

The whole idea is just burn more calories and stimulate metabolism, which gives you your deficit back again or you can pull back your food intake and give yourself a deficit again from the food side.

There’s more than one way to do it and I don’t think that you should lock yourself in. Use all of the variables and remember that there are TWO sides to the energy balance equation, not one."

Fat Loss - Super Lean

Have you ever experienced a fat loss "plateau" where you were losing fat just fine for a while, but then your progress suddenly stopped for NO apparent reason?

Have you ever lost lot of bodyfat successfully, but then it seemed almost impossible to get rid of the last 10-15 pounds?

Have you ever wondered why it seems so difficult to lose the last bit of fat in your lower abs? Why is that spot so stubborn?

Have you ever been curious about what it takes to get the "ripped" 6-pack abs of a fitness cover model or a bodybuilder?

You just took the "Super Lean" quiz...

And if you answered "yes" to ANY one of these questions, then you'll want to take a very close look at the fat loss information in this email... it applies especially to YOU.

If you said "yes" to all 4 of the questions in the Super Lean quiz, then what you're about to read is nothing short of the answer to your prayers.

It's called, "Super Lean: Secrets of Achieving very low body fat" and its a new seminar from fat loss expert Tom Venuto.

Oh, did I mention that Tom is giving away this "Super Lean" seminar for F.R.E.E.?

yes, yes, there IS a "catch"... But I think you will like it.

Read on for the details or just jump ahead to Tom's website at:

SUPER LEAN was originally a part of the hottest fitness teleseminar series of 2007, with more than 30,000 people registering for the live calls and audio playback.

Featuring 2 separate interviews with fat loss expert and natural bodybuilder Tom Venuto, this seminar has been re-packaged as a brand new MP3 audio and ebook program - it has never been available to the public before in this format.

You get TWO MP3 audios - nearly two hours of listening - (which you can burn to CD's, save in your IPOD or hear right on your computer). Not only that, the seminar has also been transcribed and edited into TWO 38 page PDF e-books (suitable for printing)

Here's a small sample of what you'll hear in these "Super Lean" audios:

* Why the last 10-15 pounds is always harder to lose than the first 10-15... it's biological, so "resistance is futile"... you either learn how to "cooperate" with your "bodyfat thermostat" or bang your head against a wall in frustration

* "The Health-Bodyfat Paradox" - Tom Venuto's new theorem on how to achieve the ultimate balance between health and leanness (what good is it to be ripped but unhealthy?)

* Secrets of the "THE ANTI STARVATION HORMONE" - if you don't understand this hormone (it's NOT insulin), you can forget about ever getting super lean. The good news is, you can manipulate this hormone naturally, and you'll learn how in the first 5 minutes of the first seminar

* 3 critical nutrition strategies you MUST know if you ever want to get rid of those last 10-15 pounds (you could lose 50, 75, even 100 pounds, but if you don't understand THESE strategies, the last bit of fat will always haunt you - especially the lower abs

* The truth about fat loss plateaus: Everything you thought you knew about plateaus is dead wrong! To get your fat loss re-ignited, you must learn the 4 REAL REASONS why fat loss flatlines

* 7 ways to keep your precious, hard-earned muscle when you're dieting... most people lose muscle along with the fat because they didn't know about these strategies

* Advanced tactics to prepare for the final week before a bodybuilding, fitness or figure competition or photo shoot... including a safe and natural herb that gets rid of water retention and bloating, revealing better muscle definition in a matter of hours

* What NOT to do in the final week before you hit your peak... if you make this "amateur mistake," you could undo weeks or months of hard work in a single day.

* How you can eat chocolate, ice cream, or pizza and still get six pack abs - it all has to do with the laws of thermodynamics, and if you take this advice, you will actually get leaner eating "junk food" than if you didn't eat it at all! (this is true, I kid you not!)

* And a lot more!

You can use these 'super Lean secrets' to hit single-digit body fat, to prepare for a photo shoot or transformation contest, to compete in bodybuilding, fitness or figure, to look good for a wedding or special event, or just to knock off those last stubborn 5-15 pounds and look good on the beach or in a tank top.

There's something in these recordings for everyone.

Here's the deal:

From now until Midnight (PST), February 13th, you can get a copy of the Super Lean Seminar on two MP3s and in two ebook transcripts, absolutely f-r-e-e when you purchase the Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle e-book from this web page:

Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is the "bible of fat loss" for tens of thousands of men and women in over 137 countries worldwide and if you don't have a copy yet, then this is a better opportunity than ever because you now get the Super Lean Seminar MP3's and transcripts as a bonus along with the Burn The Fat program.

You probably see a lot of promotions come along in your email for all sorts of fitness and fat loss products, but this is one of the best bonus offers you will see in a long time, especially if you said YES to any of the "super lean quiz" questions.

Not to mention... Tom doesn't do this type of thing very often.

You should especially look at this because of who it's coming from - Tom is one of the most respected professionals in the fat loss field; the fat loss SCIENCE field that is, not the fat loss infomercial field!

This offer expires on Wednesday, February 13th at midnight PST and it will not be available again so I highly recommend you visit the Burn The Fat website, read about the Burn The Fat program, and jump on this "super Lean" offer while you still can.

Here's the link again:

7 Back Pain Mistakes

Wouldn't you like to know what mistakes you are making that are keeping you in pain? Several years ago, The Healthy Back Institute put together an audio CD discussing the 7 most common mistakes that people make that are keeping them in pain and holding them back from fully enjoying their lives. For the last few years, they sold this CD for $29.

However, they found that many people were stubborn and would rather remain in pain than spend $29 to experience life the way it was meant to be - PAIN FREE. Therefore, they have decided to just give away this audio absolutely free just so that they can target as many people as possible and help them get lasting relief.

If you suffer from any degree of back pain, you need to listen to this audio as I am sure you are probably making one of the 7 mistakes they cover. I am guilty of one of those myself and have begun correcting it after listening to the audio. Which one are you making?

Tiger Woods Does It Again

Tiger Woods Does It Again
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Tiger Woods is off to an incredible start in 2008, winning 3 tournaments in 3 starts. He did it again this weekend, winning another tournament, but its no surprise based on his physical strength and mobility.

Not only does Tiger look like he gained even more muscle in the off-season, it looks like he has Mark McGwire's arms, almost. Although again, Tiger is doing this all without steroids.

Tiger is physically dominating the sport. Heck, he's even driven Phil Mickelson to start exercising and to lose weight. Phil looks so much better now that he has lost 20 pounds.

I'd be very interested to see Tiger's workout program. Is there anything fancy in it? Or is it just the basics? How does he gain strength without sacrificing mobility? That is one of the biggest mistakes most "bodybuilding" type routines make...if a golfer did bodybuilding type training, it would most likely ruin his game just as easily as getting fat and out of shape.

Does Tiger use a lot of bodyweight exercises? Does he do cardio or interval training? If anyone has the inside scoop on that training program, let me know.

Now you certainly don't need to be a powerlifter, bodybuilder, or gymnast to be a good you can see by the physiques on many other men and women on tour. However, you can't let your strength or mobility be the limiting factor in your game. So you need to train...

The best things to do are...

1) Use a variety of bodyweight exercises to work on your strength and mobility. This can be part of your warmup or can compose your entire workout. Like I said, you don't need to be a powerlifter to be a golfer.

First, start with the basics like pushups, bodyweight squats, inverted bodyweight rows, stick-ups, lunges, and the plank and side plank for your abs.

Then once you've mastered those, move on to spiderman pushups, spiderman climbs, mountain climbers, one-leg romanian deadlifts, stability ball leg curls, hanging leg raises, pullups, chinups, and decline pushups.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of bodyweight exercises you can do to burn fat, get stronger, and improve your mobility. This will help you hit longer and more accurately on the golf course.

Plus, it will increase your stamina and focus late in the game - combined with good nutrition of course.

2) Work with a good golf coach to identify your weaknesses. Is your lack of hip mobility messing up your swing? Is your work posture ruining your shoulder mobility? Etc.

3) Eat right for fat loss and mental energy. You won't get tired on the course. I believe this is one of the most under-rated aspects of Tiger's game. If you watch him play, you'll see him snacking at various points in the day. And he ain't eating junk, unlike many of the older players on the scene. Plus, good nutrition allows him to recover between rounds and between

If you follow these three steps, you'll have a better body, you'll burn fat, and you'll golf like a champ. Use your bodyweight, not machines, to become fit like Tiger Woods.
