Fast Or Slow Rep Speed...Which Is Best For Size And Strength?

By The Muscle Nerd, Jeff Anderson

In This Strength Training Article:

Why something as simple as your rep speed could be holding you back from reaching your goals...and how one little change can help you shortcut your way to success!
BONUS DOWNLOAD:  2 Free Chapters from my book, "Optimum Anabolics" to show you how to build MORE MUSCLE FASTER...with a lot less effort!

Lifting tempo is the technical term for how fast (or slow) you lift and lower the weights during a rep.

Lifting tempo has a couple of other aliases, lifting speed and rep speed to name two.

A rose by any other name as they say, because whatever you want to call it, lifting tempo has a huge impact on your training success.

Neither speed is right or wrong.

Rather, different lifting tempos help you achieve different results.

What’s important is making a conscious decision to lift at a certain speed. Selecting a lifting tempo should be part of creating a training program.

To put it simply, high muscle tension during a lift is what makes for big muscles.

The faster your lifting tempo, the lower your tension. However, a fast rep enables you to lift heavier weights.

If you’re looking to increase sheer power and strength, you go with a faster lifting tempo.

A slower lifting tempo, as explained above, is what increases muscle tension.

To increase muscle size, focus on a slower lifting tempo.

In general, you want to let the weight down more slowly than you raise it.

Cowboy up—we’re going to have to take a foray into the world of technical terminology.

An exercise starts with you lifting the bar. This is called the “positive” phase of the rep.

It’s also called the “concentric contraction.”

On the other hand, lowering the weight (not surprisingly) is the “negative” phase and the “eccentric contraction.”

The positive phase is where your muscles are doing the work; the negative phase is where your muscles face resistance.

You want to come down slowly because the negative phase is the phase that promotes blood flow.

Increased resistance equal increased blood flow.

Why should you care about blood flow?

Because it causes “microtrauma.” Microtrauma, though ominous sounding, is our friend.

It’s what keeps your muscles growing stronger throughout the day, post-workout.

Ok, so I’ve been talking about “slow” and “fast” lifting tempos, but to put this info into practice, you’re going to need some definitions to go along with those terms.

Fast lifting tempo: These are the explosive-type reps. Use enough weight to really push yourself, but not so much that you can’t use proper form.

Slow lifting tempo: Ten seconds total. Four seconds up, four seconds down, and a two second pause at the top.

As Goldilocks wanted something in between the hot and cold porridge, so too do bodybuilders need a middle ground in order to use both lifting strategies to maximize size AND strength. 

For this I actually prescribe a 2-stage repetition that allows you to target ALL of your muscle fibers and benefit from BOTH lifting styles.

Why Do People Fail In The Gym?

So here's the million-dollar question:

"What's the number one reason people do not work out?"

Is it lack of money? Lack of motivation? Perhaps they lack the ideal workout plan?

Nope. It's TIME. Or rather the lack thereof.

"We know that 50 per cent of the population doesn't [exercise] and the most commonly cited barrier to exercise is lack of time." This quote comes from exercise researcher Martin Gibala, a kinesiology professor at McMaster University in Hamilton.

Gibala put his theory to the test in a study that was published in the Journal of Physiology. In it Gibala compared a group who exercised "traditionally" -- 90 to 120 minutes per day -- with another group exercising far less:  Only 20 minutes per day and only three days per week.

That's a whopping one hour per week folks.

Did you know that Jon Benson's "7 Minute Muscle" plan calls for only five 7-minute workouts with resistance training (weights or bodyweight) plus only 9 minutes cardio a few days per week?

And that actually works?  Yeah... you bet it does.

If you do the math, that's about an hour per week as well.

This is the "Level 1" workout. There are three levels depending on your goals and exercise tolerance.

Find out more here --

http://7mm.rxsportz.com <--- brief is best!

Back to Gibala's study:

In just two weeks both groups showed improvement in both exercise performance and oxygen uptake. (Remember, fat burns in the presence of oxygen.)

The kicker is that both groups were almost identical in their improvement. Why? Because the brief exercise group trained with greater focus and more intensity -- exactly how Jon suggests you train.

This is just one of dozens of studies that confirm the benefits of shorter but more intense workouts.

However, there is a catch:  Train too hard and you will shut down your fat-burning furnace.

Your body perceives over-exertion done over an extended period of time as a sign of pursuit. It can trigger an ancient hormonal sequence that says, "I'm being chased by a tiger! Horde the fat!"

The body literally shuts down what it considers to be unnecessary activity in favor of self-preservation. And guess what? Burning off those hips and love handles is not a biological necessity.

You have to learn when to hit it hard AND when to rest and recover.

Finally, you have to put yourself into the proper mental state in order to see greater results in the shortest period of time.

Jon devotes an entire chapter to putting your mind into your muscle to make gains faster than ever before in "7 Minute Muscle." You can read more here --

http://7mm.rxsportz.com   <--- brief is best!

Just remember these three key points:

    1.  Time is the greatest barrier to fitness.
    2.  Workouts can be short and very effective.
    3.  The body goes where the mind directs.

Until next time, train smart.

Sincerely,

2 Steps To Better Bodybuilding Supplements On A Budget!

If you’re serious about adding nutritional supplements to your diet and fitness program then your first step is to realize that this is going to be a monthly expenditure just like your car payment or phone bill.

And of course, you want to keep it MUCH closer to your phone bill than your car payment, right?

Let me share with you 2 EASY STEPS to saving a TON on your supplement bill...

Step 1:  Car...Phone...Groceries...Supplements?

Take a practical look at your MONTHLY expenses and first determine EXACTLY how much money you can commit to spending each and every month to help you reach your goals.

Ahhhh...what’s the matter?

Did you hear your wallet slam shut like a dungeon door?

Attaching a monthly “commitment” to buying supplements took all the “fun” out of shopping around for glitzy newcomers you see in each issue of the latest bodybuilding magazine, didn’t it?

Yes, it’s MUCH easier and exciting to get all worked up about the miracle new “fat burner” and whip out your credit card to look like the fitness model in the add 30 days from now, isn’t it?

And herein lies the problem...

Emotional decisions are what force us to spend more money than what we planned on sometimes worthless supplements...and then we’re left scratching our heads when the credit card bill comes in and we wonder how the current balance got so high.

Let me tell you...while establishing a monthly budget for your supplement purchases may force you to face the fact that there really IS a cost associated with them, most people spend MORE money on supplements by NOT setting a budget and sticking with it!

Bottom line...without a budget, you have no way of limiting yourself and you’re likely to overspend.

But setting a monthly budget can help you in other ways as well...

By staying within a certain spending limit, you’re forced to REALLY make rational, educated decisions about your supplement choices.  While the new “miracle” muscle-builder you were frothing at the mouth over in the latest muscle mag may be calling your name, once you see that it will blow this month’s AND next month’s protein purchase, it won’t be so magnetic and you’ll be able to stick with your tried and true supplement program that will take you MUCH further toward your goals.

Step 2:  Make Your OWN Supplement Formulas!

Yes, you heard me right...

There’s no need to pay such outrageous prices for name brand supplements when you can EASILY create your own recipes right in your very own kitchen.

You don’t need to be a laboratory scientist to do this...it’s actually amazingly simple if you know how!

Want to see just how simple it really is?

Here's a 4-step process you can use yourself to create your very own powerful supplement formulas... http://supplement.rxsportz.com

Once you read this report, you’ll never look at supplements the same way again...

...and you won’t have to go broke in your quest for more muscle and less fat!

Find Out If Protein Guilt Is Sabotaging your Weight Loss

By Brad Pilon, MS

http://eatstopeat.rxsportz.com

Carbohydrates and Fats have both taken their turn as the evil food that you should never eat, but protein is always the golden child that can do no wrong.

Or can it?

I think protein has been put so high on a pedestal for both weight loss and muscle gaining that you can begin to suffer from something I like to call “protein guilt”.

So what is protein guilt? Well I’ll tell you.

If you eat any food and especially EXTRA food simply because you think you need it for protein, then you have protein guilt.

I realized I had protein guilt a few years ago when I used to analyze every meal I ate for the protein content. If the meal I was eating didn’t have at least 30 grams of protein I went out of my way to eat something else to make sure I got my 30 grams.

This is a perfect example of protein guilt – I felt guilty if I didn’t eat a precise amount of protein at every meal. I couldn’t just enjoy food anymore, I could only think about the protein content because I believed protein was so important for burning fat and gaining muscle.

Now I realize that I was actually OVEREATING because I felt the need to get more protein into my body. I would drink an extra glass of milk or make sure I ordered double chicken breast when I ate salads, anything to make sure I was eating MORE protein. I was denying the fact that I was overeating just to get more protein.

And it showed around my waistline.

This is how protein guilt can sabotage your weight loss efforts, namely justifying overeating just to get more protein in your diet.

To this day I still struggle with protein guilt (I use it to justify my chocolate milk cravings) but now at least I can eat an apple without forcing myself to have some milk or chicken to bring up the protein content of that meal. Doesn’t this sound crazy?

I’m getting better for sure, but I still feel twinges of protein guilt almost every time I eat. If you’re anything like me you know exactly what I am talking about.

If you live in any modern industrialized society you most likely already eat enough protein without even thinking about it. Even though I now know better, this protein guilt still bothered me enough that I researched and wrote an entire book about protein just to ease my mind about how much protein I really needed to build muscle while losing body fat.

I know this sounds a bit extreme but this was the only way for me to get over my protein guilt. Fortunately for you I’m done writing the book and you can get the final answer about protein without having to do all the research and write your own book.

So if you want to find out how much protein you really need to build and maintain lean muscle and your fat burning metabolism, and if you want to know the TRUTH about protein supplements, post workout protein, and protein guilt, then you need to check out my new book “HOW MUCH PROTEIN”

Got Food? Eat Healthy Food In A Flash

How much time do people waste just figuring out what they are going to eat, a lot! If your training hard in the gym and looking to build muscle, lose body fat, or all of the above; you realize how important it is to feed your body the right healthy food at the right times.

Then people say, “I don’t have time to cook 4-6 times a day!” Well, with the right amount of planning, you won’t have to. Having your kitchen stocked with the proper foods is essential to preparing healthy meals in minutes.

For your protein needs have your freezer well stocked with chicken breasts, lean cuts of beef, pork, and fish. Have lots of skim milk, and lean deli cuts of turkey, chicken, and roast beef in your refrigerator for additional protein. Combine this with a couple protein shakes and meal replacements, and your protein needs should get met.

As for sources of carbohydrates. Keep your kitchen well stocked with oatmeal, whole wheat breads, (multigrain if possible), different types of rice, white and sweet potatoes, as well as fruit and fruit juices for that post workout insulin spike to top of your energy supplies. Don’t forget to have lots of fresh and frozen veggies on hand for most of your daily carb intake.

With a well-stocked kitchen, even if you’re rushed, you can make a quick and tasty meal in no time. Try different recipe combinations by taking one of the above protein sources, frying it up in a skillet or on a grill, throwing in some frozen stir-fry vegetables (they come in many flavors), and add a complex carb source on the side.

5 Exercises You SHOULDN'T Be Doing

by Sean Barker, CPT

Old habits are hard to break. But if you keep doing these 5 old school exercises you will be breaking more than old habits.

1. Leg extensions- Unfortunately this exercise seems to be the extent of most guys leg training.  Probably because sitting down and pumping out reps of leg extensions are a lot easier than squatting down with hundreds of pounds on your back. 

Despite the "burn" you may feel from your upper thighs when performing this exercise, it is not a very efficient leg exercise as it only isolates the muscles above the knee. 
The only time this exercise has much benefit is in a rehab setting where these muscles directly surrounding the knee need to be developed for stability and strength. Otherwise opt for any variation of the free-range squat.

2. Behind the neck pulldowns- This is another exercise that I still see people doing in the gym. I cringe every time I see someone take a wide grip on the angled ends of the pulldown bar and start pulling it down behind their neck.

The angled ends of the bar are an outdated design and are not where you should be gripping the bar. This puts your shoulders and rotator cuffs in a very vulnerable position. 

Putting most of the stress on the shoulders and limiting range of motion away from the back muscles this exercise should be crossed off your list. Work on being able to do bodyweight chin-ups instead or at least pulldowns to the front.

3. Behind the neck shoulder press- Similar to the behind the neck pulldown, the behind the neck barbell shoulder press places your shoulder in a delicate position.  It is basically the same movement but by adding additional weight to the bar and pushing up in the vertical plane you are putting your rotator cuffs at an even greater risk of injury.

With the extra weight you can pile on the bar with this exercise, trying to even unrack the bar will soon send your shoulders screaming in pain. Switch to the safer option; the front barbell shoulder press.

4. Concentration Curls- Probably the most popular bicep exercise for beginners wanting to "get the pump" and get Arnold-like biceps.  It's too bad a lot of experienced trainers still waste their time on this exercise.

No matter how many reps of concentration curls you do, you won't get that bicep peak like the Terminator, as muscle SHAPE is genetically determined. Muscle SIZE on the other hand can be increased through basic movements that allow a heavy weight while using many muscles instead of isolating one smaller muscle.

Standing barbell or dumbbells curls are a better choice for bicep development, but better again are close grip chin-ups, which put a lot of stress on the upper arms while working many other muscles.

5. Crunches- It would be nice if all you had to do to get that ripped six pack would be to lie on the floor and pump out hundreds of reps of back breaking crunches. Despite what the infomercials want you to believe, this is NOT true!

You wouldn't build your biceps by doing 100 reps with no weight, so why would you think you would develop your abdominals by doing 100 crunches or more? Your abdominals primary purpose is to actually stabilize your spine and to keep your torso from twisting in half under times of physical stress, not lift your neck off the floor.

Overall, the best exercises for your abs are exercises that allow your body to use your core the way it was meant to be used: for stability and support. Bodyweight planks, and compound exercises like squats and overhead presses will work your abs better than any crunch will ever do. Combined with a clean diet you might just see those abs looking back at you in the mirror.

...OK quiz time.  Do you see a trend with these 5 exercises?

They all involve sitting or lying down, (which we are all experts at already) and they work only a small section of muscle, allowing you to pump out endless reps without much effort.  

For you busy guys who want to get the most out of your workouts, stop wasting your valuable time on these old school exercises that break your body down instead of building it up...

An Advanced Bench Press Training Trick For A Bigger Chest

By The Muscle Nerd, Jeff Anderson

In This Chest Training Article...

Why 95% of the guys in the gym are short-changing their chest training...WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT! How a simple (but POWERFUL!) form change in your bench press can pay off with BIG DIVIDENDS in building mass on your chest!

Today, I want to share with you a VERY common mistake most people make when training their chest...

Ignore this info at your own peril!  The difference in muscle fiber stimulation is IMMENSE!

Here's what I'm talking about...

When you perform "pushing" exercises like the Bench Press, most people don't know where to place their "focus" and ultimately just end up instincively pushing the weight up in any form that feels "natural".

However, what happens to 95% of you is you end up using too much "front shoulder" and take a large part of the focus off of your chest muscles, leaving them short-changed on fiber stimulation for maximum growth.

Here's how to overcome this common blunder with what I call the "Shoulder-Rib Lock":

1.  When lying on the bench (for a Bench Press), begin by dropping your shoulders BACK (toward the bench) as far as comfortably possible.

2.  Next, roll your shoulders DOWN (in the direction of your feet).

3.  And lastly, "puff" out your ribcage to keep it held high.

Consider this your "locked" position for the entire movement and keep your pectorals "aimed" high toward the ceiling!

You'll be amazed at how much of a difference you'll see in your chest workouts!

Oh...and what about using this technique for bodyweight exercises?

Well, these very same principles apply to the PUSH UP as well!

Just go through the same little "checklist" and keep your shoulders locked back and down while keeping your ribcage "puffed out" and you'll see the same difference in your training (AND your RESULTS!)

Chest Training Tip For Blowing Up Your Pecs!

By The Muscle Nerd, Jeff Anderson

To get full pec development, you need to hit the chest from different angles.

You know that, right?

But while most guys are relying on doing this solely via the incline, flat, and decline benches, I have a BETTER tip for you...

Instead of changing the angle at which you work your chest, focus on your GRIP WIDTH!

Here's why...

Depending on how close your hands are together on the barbell, you target either different areas of your chest.

The closer your hands, the more you work the inner and upper pecs (but also your triceps).

The wider your hands are, the more overall chest stimulation you get as you take a lot of the triceps out of the power equation.

So here's how you can use this knowledge to further your chest development...

Start with the flat bench and do one set of the barbell bench press with a close grip until you reach failure at about 8-12 reps.

Rest 2 minutes and then do another set of 8-12 reps to failure with a shoulder width grip.

Finally, after you next 2 minute rest, do another set with your hands about 6-8 inches wider than shoulder width.

From here, you can move on to the incline bench and do the same exact thing for 3 more sets.

Follow it up with a trip to the decline bench for 3 more and you're all done for "Chest Day"!

New Research: Fat Is Contagious?

[ Editor's Note:  Fitness author Jon Benson shared this letter with me and gave me permission to share it with you. ]

It's like a dream come true.

"Gaining bodyfat is the result  of a virus."

Wouldn't that be great news?

Well...

Let me tell you about the AD-36 adenovirus. Adenoviruses are the same nasty bugs that cause the common cold. We all have these viruses in various forms in our body all the time.

That last bit is a critical distinction.

Remember that.

The Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana has been doing some really ground-breaking research on AD-36. AD-36 affects stem cells... more specifically fat cells, both pre-formed and post-formed.

This means AD-36 can make MORE fat cells if contracted as an infant and make your fat cells larger if contracted as an adult.

Or so the theory goes.

To quote the study:

"Earlier researchers have concluded that Ad-36 may be contributors to obesity by super-charging fat cells to grow and store more fat. Until now, though, those researchers thought the viruses targeted pre-fat cells (called pre-adipocytes), causing them to convert in higher numbers to fat cells and causing those fat cells to be larger. Those studies were in mice. Pasaricas work determines the virus targets stem cells in humans."

The result?

"In one test, a third of obese people had the rare and highly contagious virus compared to just 11 percent of thinner people. Weight gain can last three months until the body has built up resistance to the bug."

Wow. Sounds like we have a winner here. A virus that you can catch that literally makes you gain bodyfat!  All we need is...

a vaccine!

Right?

Wrong.

First of all, notice that 11% of LEAN people have AD-36. And at any given time, just like a cold or a flu virus, you could contract AD-36. If your body has 'never' been exposed to it, you may require about 3 months to build up antibodies to ward it off.

Now, you can gain a lot of weight in 3 months... but come on. You cannot become obese in three months unless you are really, REALLY working at it.

Plus, like most viruses, you build up immunity to AD-36. Researchers do not know how long the immunity lasts, but some theorize it could last years... some even decades.

And let's not forget those 11% who are lean and have the virus.

Why did they not all of a sudden get "sick" with bodyfat?

Because they are not EATING or LIVING in a way that allows them to gain bodyfat no matter what nasty freakin' viruses may be floating about, that's why.

That's right folks:  It is always going to come down to the food we put in our body and the way we move.

Here's another hypothesis presented by Sherry Strong, food philosopher and nutritionist:  "This could very well be the result of nature creating a mutation to encourage us to eat more due to the fact our consumption of natural, whole and organic foods is so low."

Brilliant observation... and one that makes complete sense.

Even if a "virus" is responsible for 20% of our weight gain, what about the other 80%?

We do not need a vaccine other than good food and a common sense workout plan.

Here's the best --

http://7mm.rxsportz.com  <--- the "vaccine" for bodyfat

Here's why I love this workout:

1. It's fast. 7-14 minutes 3-5 days per week. Anyone on earth can do this.

2. The Basic Upgrade (you will see it) still comes with a copy of my book "The Every Other Day Diet." Put the two together and you have an absolute winner of a plan that's practical and enjoyable.

3. Plus, anyone who owns "Every Other Day Diet" gets my upcoming "Radical Fatloss Blueprint" book freee. It comes out March 1st.

That's 3 good reasons to go here and check out 7 Minute Muscle...

http://7mm.rxsportz.com  <--- the "vaccine" for bodyfat

Here's one more:

You know better.

You know that there's never going to be a magic pill for health, vitality, energy and looking your best.

We can keep hoping... or you can take action and get what you want now.

To me, that makes more sense than AD-36 "Super-Retro Fat-burning Vaccine" to hit the marketplace in 2021.

It's not your fault...

I want to you to understand something VERY important:

Most people blame themselves because they can't lose the
stubborn fat they want to...or get the s.exy body they
want...or get the teenager-like energy they want...the list
goes on...BUT-

-YOU CAN'T WIN THIS WAY...beating yourself up and
disapproving of yourself will only create more self doubt in
your mind and have you believing that it's your fault you're
not as lean or fit as you'd like to be.  That is complete
B.S.!

(By the way, if you sit on your butt and do nothing, then
YES, it is your fault, but I'm talking about most people who
are out there at least trying to get it done)

Here's the TRUTH:

There is a lot of crap out there in the fat loss and fitness
industry (magic pills, gizmos, etc.) that just doesn't work
and is only aimed at swiping your hard earned money...

...And there is some good stuff out there too...

...BUT the BIG PROBLEM for people today is that even with
the good stuff, it usually requires you to sacrifice way too
much time enjoying your hobbies and family...or basically
just enjoying life!

You thought it was your fault...maybe you were insecure,
wanted to know what to do, wanted to know the answer.
Perhaps you tried harder, worked longer, disapproved of
yourself, maybe even beat yourself up, and STILL couldn't
solve the problem.  UNTIL-

-Until you stepped outside of this SELF BLAME GAME and
started to create a more intelligent approach to getting the
lean, strong, and attractive body most people never
achieve...

...an approach that sees fat loss and fitness as a life long
approach, not something you do for a few weeks and then
stop...

...an approach that understands there is more to life than
working out or obsessing over your diet...

...an approach that provides the most efficient and easiest
to follow workout and diet techniques in just a few minutes
each week...

This approach is a collection of techniques and secrets that
is now known worldwide as 'Fat Burning Furnace'.  Nearly
80,000 people have benefited from the techniques Rob Poulos
has put together...But-

-It NEVER would have happened if he had continued to blame
himself for his fat loss troubles.

Instead, he decided to let all of that disapproval go away,
and Rob began finding a practical approach that could work
for the rest of his now lean, strong, and healthy life.

So if you're still playing the "SELF BLAME GAME", STOP! It's
not your fault.  Step outside of the disapproving of
yourself...and once you've done that, get a PLAN that is
realistic and will actually work over the long haul, like
FBF.

AND to kickstart that for you, I want to remind you that
TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to register for Rob's FBF NEW BODY
Challenge...

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE THIS ALREADY, you're going to finally
get your butt in gear and out of the self blame game by
submitting a "before" ph.oto and preparing to finally reach
your best body goals...SO-

-If you aren't using the techniques and tricks in my FBF
system yet, and you want to finally get serious and be

The Top 10 Best Advanced Bodyweight Exercises

1) Pull-ups (If you want to build muscle, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how hard pullups can work your chest!)

2) 1-Leg Squats (This is advanced, but you can practice by squatting back onto a bench.)

3) Spiderman Pushup (A TT classic! I know you love them!)

4) Inverted Rows (Most folks neglect their upper backs, but you won't if you use this powerful exercise.)

5) Bulgarian Split Squats 

6) Chin-ups (Again, this doesn't just work your back, but your chest, biceps, and even your shoulders.)

7) Decline Push-up (You can make this harder by doing close-grip or spiderman versions.)

8] 1-Leg Stability Ball Leg Curl (Your hamstrings have to work as hard as possible in this one...great for building a better backside.)

9) Stability Ball Ab Rollout (My current favorite ab exercise.)

10) Burpees (Way better than long, slow cardio for fast results.)

The Secret To A Better Lovelife

[ Editor's Note:  Fitness author Jon Benson shared this letter with me and gave me permission to share it with you. ]

Today we need to chat about your hormones.

Yeah, I chat a lot about hormones. That's because I have been to Hormone Hell and back. Twice.

I've lived to tell the tale.

It's scary... and it's one of those hidden illnesses that you might not even know you have.

I had it at 27. I did not affect my lovelife, but that was probably due to my youth. If I did not treat it then, I would have no lovelife or drive at ALL right now.

I treated it with drugs. That is all we had back then.

Today I use a combination of therapies, many of which are natural....

1. I train with weights to increase testosterone-levels naturally.

2. I train and do cardio before eating in the morning to increase gH levels naturally without drugs.

3. I cycle my calories to increase my thyroid levels naturally.

As you can see there are many ways to increase your hormone levels naturally.

But it's not all exercise and nutrition. Now we have several "botanical" supplements:  Herbs and other natural helpers to help the fight.

I wish I would have known about Dr. Lucille when I was 27.

She's the expert in that field. Herbs, nutrition for hormone help, and how to protect your body IF you have to take drugs to help the problem like I do.

I listen to her. So should you.

Here's her site:

http://naturapause.rxsportz.com  <--- natural energy help

The best thing about having your hormones optimized is energy.

Yes, you will burn more bodyfat.

Yes, you will increase your lovelife and your desire to have intimacy.

Yes, you will increase your resistance to disease and common illnesses.

But I think MORE ENERGY is the best.

I have the energy to do anything I want at just about any time I want.

Here's an example:

Today I had to go to the funeral of a dear friend. She passed away after struggling with a lifetime of various illnesses, many of which were made worse by lifestyle choices. Some she had no control over.

We all loved her dearly.

We drove until 1:00AM this morning. I got up early for the funeral but not early enough to eat breakfast.

I had a large lunch afterwards and then we headed back -- another 3 hour boring drive in traffic.

Even with all of this emotional stress, my body only needed a 2-hour nap to pop right back into high gear. I could literally go and workout now at almost 11:00pm if I had to.

I'm glad I don't because I have a night of packing ahead of me for a business trip!

Still, the point is simple:

Hormone Health = Greater Energy

Most people do not exercise because... get this....

They do not FEEL like it.

I don't mean "feel like it" as in they would rather do something else, although that is the case sometimes.

I mean "feel like it" in the sense that they have NO energy to do it.

They are tired, run-down after a 9 to 5 day, and feel zonked.

You too?

If so, you need this info...

http://naturapause.rxsportz.com  <--- natural energy help

Remember:  More energy, more lovelife. More workouts that burn fat. More done in the day.

More living... in the best way possible.

Training With Weights vs "Weight Training"

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a word of warning:

I will be using the term "bodybuilder" or "bodybuilding" to refer to anyone who wants to build lean muscle and burn bodyfat in this article.

That means you.

Yep... you are a "bodybuilder." That does not mean you want to look like a monster on stage and pose in front of thousands of people wearing nothing but your undies.

That means you want more lean muscle and less bodyfat -- that's it.

With that in mind, here's something you have to know:

Bodybuilders do not "lift weights" -- we "train" with weights.

We use weights as a tool like a sculptor uses a hammer and chisel.

The object of the game is not to lift some heavy weight from Point A to Point B and back. That's weight lifting. "Bodybuilding" is about making the muscle you want to change do all the

work.

Here's two ways to do it:

1. Lower the weight and focus:  Most people are just concerned with the lift itself. "Get this weight off of me!" seems to be the unconscious mantra. This will not get the job done. In fact you may end up looking bulky rather than sleek... or just not change at all. Instead, lower the weight slightly, slow the pace down (especially on the descent of the movement) and picture the muscle in your mind doing ALL of the work. Literally put your mind in the muscle. You will be amazed at how different the same exercise feels with this degree of concentration,.

2. Contract, hold, release:  At the top of any movement, contract the muscle hard. Hold that contraction for a second or two, then release it and lower the weight slowly. This will not only cause faster muscle growth (that is a good thing) but also demand that you use less weight to get the job done. This means your joints -- shoulders, knees, elbows -- will last a lifetime. At 45 my joints are in perfect health. Protect yours at all costs.

Just remember:  You are not just lifting weights when you train for muscle shape and "tone" -- you are a sculptor. Treat your tools and your body with that degree of care.

I cover many more tips on how to build lean muscle and burn bodyfat faster in my book "7 Minute Muscle".

New Body Challenge

You know that New Body Challenge contest I told you about the other day?

The one where you can win your share of 2300 bucks in cash and get a step by step 10-week summer shape up blueprint to follow to win it?

Yeah, that one!

Well, it was supposed to be over and done on Thursday, but the contest creator, Rob Poulos, just called me to let me know he ran into a bit of a problem...

See, because of the huge amount of hits Rob's been receiving at his site, especially from international visitors, he had some trouble processing all of the orders for his Fat
Burning Furnace system-

-you can imagine he had quite a few angry visitors who couldn't get their hands on his system and limited bonuses...

...so just to be fair to everybody, he's had to extend the deadline to this Sunday, February 22nd, just before midnight eastern time.

So if you missed the 1st deadline for any reason, or haven't heard about this new chance at your NEW BODY, you're going to thank me later...

Just tap the link below to get started:

http://fbf.rxsportz.com

Alright that's it for now...

Here's to stepping into your new body this summer and stepping out onto that beach feeling confident and looking your very best ever,

Idiotic Mistakes Using Superset Training To Build Muscle

By The Muscle Nerd, Jeff Anderson

By now you should know that "superset" training (where you perform one exercise back-to-back with another exercise) is NOT just an "advanced" training technique for the gym.

It's actually the best training method for any fitness goal, whether you want to build muscle or burn fat.

Unfortunately, I see WAAAAAY too many people using this technique incorrectly...and it's time to set the record straight!

Here's the deal...

Your muscles have 7 "types" of fibers which can be broken down into 2 "main" types (fast-twitch and slow-twitch)

And each set of fibers has it's own purpose...AND it's own preference for how it likes to be trained.

Depending upon your goal, you'll want to train a bit differently.

You see, slow-twitch muscles are used mostly for endurance activities and prefer to be trained with lower weights and higher repetitions.

On the other hand, your fast-twitch muscles are the ones you use for strength and power and like heavy weights with lower reps.

But since both types have the ability to grow, you'll want to attack BOTH in your workouts.

That means higher reps and lower weights for your slow-twitch muscles and lower reps and higher weight for your fast-twitch muscles.

Here's an example of how to train your chest for size...

(And then I have a little "suprise" that blows any method you've EVER seen out of the water!

But first...

Superset For Bigger Muscles

Exercises Used:

Superset Incline Dumbbell Press with Pushups

Execution:

With an incline bench at about 30 degrees, knock out a HEAVY set of about 4-6 reps.

Then IMMEDIATELY after you're done, get on the floor and do as many pushups as you can do before crashing to the ground in a pile of your own drool!

Here's why it works...

By hitting your muscles with that heavy compound exercise set first, you blast away at your fast-twitch fibers.

But then you come in and really destroy your "slow-twitchers" by extending your set with a massive "pump" that fills your chest up with blood and muscle-building hormones and nutrients!

But this is NOTHING compared to the method I can show you at my website http://mass.rxsportz.com.

There show you the 5 BIGGEST MISTAKES most guys make when it comes to their mass routines.

I promise you...you're making at least ONE of them!

But don't worry...I also show you how to solve every one of these problems and how to jumpstart new gains like never before.

Burn More Bodfyat With Spices

[ Note:  Fitness author Jon Benson shared this letter with me and gave me permission to share it with you. ]

It's the spice of life.

Food that is. Or opinions. I guess there is a lot of things that are officially "the spice of life."

I think spices are the spice of life.

I have a new-found love of spices since hanging around a killer healthy-food chef for the past week.

Wow oh wow... I had no idea.

And hey -- I'm helping her put her recipes into to a book that will be out soon.

I'll send you all a video of this woman doing her thing too in a week or so... prepare to be blown away.

Back to spices:

Not only can spices save an otherwise boring healthy meal.... turns to find out spices can help you burn more bodyfat.

The January 2006 issue of The Journal of Physiology and Behavior cited numerous studies on several spices that increased thermogenesis in the body.

Thermogenesis is simply heat -- and since a calorie is a unit of heat, guess what?

More thermogenesis = more calories burned

=

Less bodyfat.

Pretty cool stuff this thermogenesis.

In fact thermogenesis is the foundation of my upcoming handbook "The Radical Fatloss Blueprint." Out in late February.

I'm giving this book away for freee for 21 days to anyone who owns a copy of "The Every Other Day Diet."

The book comes out in late February... and it is... well, radical.

Up to 21 pounds in 21 days.

But you can only do it for 21 days. Fair deal, right?

If you want the book for freee, make sure you have "Every Other Day Diet" so I can send it to you the last week of February.

Get EODD here --

http://eodd.rxsportz.com  <--- more thermogenesis, less bodyfat

For now, here's the spices that work the best to help you burn bodyfat:

1. Capsaicin, the compound gives red chili pepper its heat, increased energy via heat expenditure by up to 23% after ingesting it at breakfast.

2. Black Pepper increases body heat (thermogenesis) by bonding to TRPV1 receptors in the brain.

3. Turmeric has both anti-cancer and pro-thermogenic support. Best of two worlds if you ask me.

Combine these three spices:  Red chili pepper, black pepper and turmeric, and use them liberally (as you can handle them) on your lunch and dinner meals.

Just be careful not to overdo the spices, otherwise you'll end up with more heartburn than fatburn.

I'll be including FAR more powerful ways to burn bodyfat radically in "The Radical Fatloss Blueprint" -- and you can get your copy free the last week of February if you own Every Other Day Diet.

RE: He's PAYING you for losing fat again?

What would you say if I told you some fat loss guy on the
Internet is actually paying people to lose fat?

What's that?  You'd call me crazy?  A liar?  Or worse?

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if you did, because it's not
every day that you can actually get paid to trade in your
body for a new energy charged, lean, strong and healthy one-

-BUT today you can.  Give me 2 minutes to explain a moment:

I just learned that fat loss and fitness expert Rob Poulos
(that fat loss guy on the Internet ;-)) has really gone out
of his way to give you the EXTRA MOTIVATION you need to
finally shed that stubborn body fat, trim that waist, and
sculpt some legs and a rear end to be proud of...

...what is he doing? Well it actually IS kind of crazy, to
be honest-

-Rob is holding his 2nd annual Fat Burning Furnace NEW BODY
CHALLENGE...and he's paying 2300 Dollars CASH out of his own pocket to the people that make the most startling body
transformations over the next 10 weeks...

...yeah, I know, how cool is this?

Get in your best shape ever AND g.et paid to do it!

Not only that, but Rob also told me he's updated his popular
step by step '10 Week Summer Shape Up Guide' and is giving
it to anyone who claims a copy of his bestselling Fat
Burning Furnace system over the next 72 hours-

-Rob created this guide to make it even easier to surprise

summer...

..PLUS, it's Rob's personal roadmap to w.inning his own
contest...he's basically spoonfeeding it to you so you can
claim your share of the 2300 dollars in cash prizes.

You see, Rob is the author of "Fat Burning Furnace", a
worldwide top selling step by step plan that reveals the
secrets and unique techniques he and his wife used to lose a
combined 101 pounds of blubber, 10 inches off his waist, and
8 of her dress sizes in a matter of months (you can see
their shocking transformations on his website)...

...and they did it without boring cardio, without
restrictive fad diets, and without dangerous fat loss pills
or junky exercise gizmos...And-

-his blueprint has already helped thousands of people trade
in their former fat selves for a new leaner and se.xy body:

In fact, reports from readers of Fat Burning Furnace show
that they lose an average of 26 pounds of pure fat from
their bodies anywhere from 30-70 days.  Have you ever seen
26 pounds of pure fat?  It's about the size of 104 sticks of
butter, so-

-just imagine stripping 104 sticks of butter or more from
your body over the next 10 weeks and you'll get a good idea
of what can happen when you simply copy Rob's plan.

BUT...you don't even have to enter his contest to get his
bonus 10-week summer shape up guide...

...in fact, when you claim your copy of Rob's revealing FBF
system,  you're also going to get 2 more AUDIO bonuses with
tricks on creating unstoppable fat loss motivation, and how
to program your mind so you can easily stick with Rob's
plan.

So-

-If you are ready to take some REAL action on finally
looking your best and feeling proud of your body in that
bathing suit this Summer, and claim your copy of Rob's Fat
Burning Furnace step by step plan by midnight on Friday
February 20th, he'll give you these 3 Fat Loss Bonuses "on

...but when the clock strikes Midnight Eastern Time on
Friday February 20th, IT'S ALL OVER-

-The 3 Fat Loss Bonuses go back into Rob's fat loss and
fitness VAULT, and anyone who has claimed their copy will be

Go ahead and tap the link below to grab your fr.eebies and
make yourself eligible for the cash now:

I hope you take a couple of minutes to check this
out...REMEMBER...

...only a small percentage of people ever achieve the kind
of body they truly desire...the one that has their f.riends
in awe or are just plain jealous of.

Rob and thousands of his readers have done that (you can
read and listen to quotes from his readers on his website)

And an even smaller percentage of people are truly happy
with the way they look in a hot and fashionable
swimsuit...BUT-

-NOW is the perfect time to CHANGE all of that for
yourself...

8 Reasons Why You Keep Falling Off The Diet Wagon

By Tom Venuto
BurnTheFat.com 

Clearly, we have an obesity problem in America and many other countries across our planet. Yet, I propose that we do not have a weight loss problem today. In case you’re confused at this apparent contradiction, consider these statistics:

According to a study from Oxford University published in the International Journal of Obesity, within 3 to 5 years, about 80 percent of all ‘weight losers’ have regained the lost weight, and often gained back a little extra.

According to research by the National Weight Control Registry, that relapse rate may be as high as 95 percent.

For comparison, relapse rates for drug, alcohol and tobacco dependency have been reported in the range of 50-90%.

This means that lots and lots of people have “successfully” lost weight. But not many have kept it off. Therefore, we don’t have a weight loss problem, we have a weight-relapse problem; we have a “not sticking with it” problem. Wouldn’t you agree?

In fact, the fall and subsequent weight-regain usually doesn’t take years. Many people have abandoned their new year’s resolutions within weeks. By the time the Super Bowl party rolls around, their diet is history!

If this is true, then shouldn’t we put more of our attention onto figuring out why you haven’t been sticking with your program, and what you should do about it?

I put together this new list (below) of the top 8 reasons why you fall off the wagon.

Rather than worrying about the minutiae of your diet plan, like whether you should be on low carb or high carb, Mediterranean or Okinawan, vegetarian or meat eater, I propose that if you simply focus on these 8 issues, you’ll start getting more lasting results.

How? By being able to stick with whichever plan you decided was best for you! After all, even if you have the best nutrition program in the world - on paper - it doesn’t do you much good if you can’t stick with it in practice!

THE 8 REASONS

1. No focus: you didn’t set goals, you didn’t put your goals in writing, and/or you didn’t stay focused on your goals daily (by reading them, affirming them, looking at a vision board, etc.)

2. No priorities: you may have set a goal, but you didn’t put it on or near the top of your priorities list. For example, your goal is six pack abs, but drinking beer and eating fast food on the weekend is higher on your priorities list than having a flat stomach.

3. No support system: you tried to go at it alone; no buddy system, training partners, family, spouse, friends, mentors or coaches to turn to for information and emotional support when the going got tough.

4. No Accountability: you didn’t keep score for your own accountability – with a progress chart, weight record, measurements, food journal, training journal, and you didn’t set up external accountability (ie, report to someone else or show your results to someone else)

5. No patience: you were only thinking short term and had unrealistic expectations. You expected 10 pounds a week or 5 pounds a week or 3 pounds a week, so the first week you lost “only” 1 or 2 pounds or hit a plateau, you gave up.

6. No planning: you winged it. You walked into the gym without having a workout in hand, on paper, you didn’t plan your workouts into your weekly schedule; you didn’t have a menu on paper, you didn’t make time (so instead you made excuses, like “I’m too busy”)

7. No balance: your diet or training program was too extreme. You went the all or nothing, “I want it now” route instead of the moderate, slow-and-steady wins the race route.

8. No personalization: your nutrition or training program was the wrong one for you. It might have worked for someone else, but it didn’t suit your schedule, personality, lifestyle, disposition or body type.

So there you have it – 8 reasons why most people fall off the wagon! Have you been making these mistakes? If so, the solutions are clear and simple: focus, prioritize, get support, be accountable, be patient, plan, balance and personalize.

Train hard and expect success,

3 Ways Carbohydrates Can Make You Fat

Can carbohydrates make you fat? Are carbohydrates essential for fueling the body and having it run efficiently? Do I need to watch my intake of carbohydrates to prevent fat storage? The answer to all 3 questions is Yes!

So what does all this mean? Am I not to eat carbs or am I supposed to eat carbs? How many carbs should I eat? What types? The entire carbohydrate craze has gone from one extreme to the other and back again. It's no wonder you may be confused, frustrated, mad or all of the above.

There is a ton of information flying around and much of it is garbage. Here are the facts about carbs and how you should use this information.

1. Your body can store all carbs as fat when the muscles and the liver are already full of glycogen. So if you continuously eat a high carbohydrate diet this can lead to increased fat storage. Also, you can store more of your carb calories as fat when you eat too many processed and refined carbs. The key is to consume moderate carbs and choose carbs that have at least 2gms of fiber per serving. This will help control insulin spikes, which leads us to number 2.

2. Eating too many carbs at one sitting without enough other nutrients to counteract its effect will cause insulin spikes, which then triggers your body's fat storing mechanisms. This is why I suggest you eat whole grain carbs, vegetables and fruits with skin when possible because they will provide good sources of fiber to help control these insulin spikes. Also, make sure you balance your carb intake with lean protein to further counteract the effects of carbs in the body in regards to elevating your insulin levels.

3. Through a process known as de novo lipogenesis your body can directly increase fat storage by converting carbohydrates to fat. So I will reiterate why you need to eat carbs. Eat whole grain, high fiber carbs as well as lean protein to control blood sugar rise, which then controls insulin spikes and helps prevent you from storing carb calories as fat.

So now that you have the facts about carbs should you be eating them or not. To summarize you do need carbs. Your body does need carbs to function properly and maintain optimal efficiency. The body doesn't need as many carbs as we feed it though. It also doesn't need the refined flours and process carbs we have become accustomed to eating. As we have gotten lazier and our lives have become busier we tend to lean towards convenient foods and they are usually not the healthiest of foods.

We have consumed too much of those foods and then blamed it all on carbs as to why we are fat. Carbs are not the main culprit. They do play a part as I describe above as to how they can make you fat. I also mention how to eat carbs so that they don't make you fat.

of body they truly desire...the one that has their f.riends
in awe or are just plain jealous of.

-NOW is the perfect time to CHANGE all of that for
yourself...

28 Day Fat Loss Blueprint

By this time you get to reading this the amazing deal that I have been talking about the past couple days could be CANCELED.

If you haven’t read previous posts imagine this….

Two top fat loss experts are going to give you a 28 day blueprint to losing weight and if you don’t lose at least 10lbs they are going to give you a refund plus 20 bucks.

http://tinyurl.com/b83jte

It is only available to the first 100 people so by the time you read this the offer could be gone.

Here’s the post I made the other day in case you missed it.

=====

I’ve never seen anything like this before.

Nutritionist Mike Roussell and Men’s Health Fat Loss Expert Alwyn Cosgrove have put their money where their mouth is…LITERALLY.

You’ve probably heard of the rapid weight loss program - Warp Speed Fat Loss. It is a 28 Day blueprint for people that want to lose up to 20lbs in 28 days. It works like gang busters.

The story goes…Mike was taking to his Dad the other week and his father didn’t think that people would believe that it was possible - being able to lose 20lbs in 28 day. Especially with all the exotic berry and weight loss scams all over the internet.

So Mike decided he needed to figure out a way to help overcome the seed of doubt in people’s minds (because the program really does work).

Do you know what he came up with?

120% Money Back Guarant.ee.

That’s right. If you don’t lose the weight, Mike and Alwyn are going to give you your money back AND send you $20 for your trouble..

Find out all the details here:

Talk Soon,

P.S. Just in case a bunch of dishonest people take Mike and Alwyn up on this, just to get 20 bucks, they have limited the offer to the first 100 people

Spice Up Your Valentine's Day With A Workout

You are about to discover a little known secret to spicing up your Valentine's Day and really making a positive impression with your partner.

The secret... Workout together as a couple!

http://fitcouple.rxsportz.com

Here's how working out as a couple will spice up your Valentine's Day and your relationship...

Working Out Together Is A Bonding Experience

This is your chance to really connect. Share your goals, be supportive of each other by offering words of encouragement, and inspire each other to be the best that you can be individually and as a couple.

The best part about this time together is that you will be with your partner while sharing the awesome feelings that are associated with physical activity. Look into each others eye's while working out. Smile and enjoy the moment together.

Working Out Together Will Increase Intimacy

Exercise produces chemicals in the brain that will increase arousal and libido. Several studies show that men and women who exercise regularly report better and more frequent sex with their partner.

Working Out Together Makes You Feel Attractive

The feelings that you experience after completing a workout are incredible. Your body feels tighter and firmer. Your energy levels get a boost. You experience a sense of accomplishment.

When you workout as a couple these feelings become magnified because you are sharing the experience with the person you love.

When you and your Valentine are feeling more attractive I guarantee there will be some sparks flying in your relationship.

Show your Valentine just how much you care about them by giving them a gift that will improve your relationship while getting in great shape together.

Give your Valentine the gift of More Love, Less Fat

Breakthrough Workout Program For Couples

With Valentine's Day nearly here it's the perfect time for me to tell you about a breakthrough workout program that was created just for couples...

Introducing More Love, Less Fat - A Couples Guide

To Transforming Your Body and Relationship

http://fitcouple.rxsportz.com

My friends Angie and Scott Tousignant are known as "The Six Pack Abs Couple". They definitely know what it takes to lose stubborn belly fat.

Last year Angie and Scott stumbled upon a powerful secret that increases your chances of fat loss success...

Working out together as a couple!

There's something magical about working together towards a common goal with your significant other. Your reasons for succeeding become stronger.

Working out with your significant other provides you with built in accountability and support.

Since you do need to rely on each other to complete the workout, you are less likely get away with any EXCUSES for not doing the workout because you need to explain yourself to someone.

So saying that you have no time, are too tired, the kids need you and blah, blah, blah...will NOT be acceptable when you owe this time to your partner.

Are you beginning to see how working out as a couple will increase your chances of creating a flat stomach?

"More Love Less Fat" is much more than just a workout program. It's a blueprint for fat loss and relationship success.

More Love Less Fat includes:

12 unique workout programs to help you burn fat in the shortest time possible.

Motivational strategies that you can apply as a couple to help you achieve your goals.

Video demonstrations for each exercise in the program.

More Love Less Fat Support Community.

Nutrition Guide including recipes.
