5 Muscle Building Exercises You're Probably Doing Wrong

As a trainer I’ve witnessed countless people at the gym using bad form on many different exercises. Using incorrect exercise form will lead to developing muscle imbalances as well as muscle, joint and ligament tears and sprains.

If you want to build muscle while staying injury free, your top priority should be to master proper exercise technique before you pile on the weights on any exercise. If you are currently not making much progress in your workout routine, then it might be because you're not using proper form on the important lifts.

Here are 5 different muscle building exercises that I've witnessed too many people do incorrectly:

Exercise #1 Bent-Over Barbell Rows:

Step #1: To target the lat muscles, grab the bar with a slightly wider than shoulder width grip.

Step #2: Step back and away form the squat rack while taking a shoulder width stance.

Step #3: While slightly bending at the knees, lower your upper body until it's almost parallel to the ground while keeping your lower back slightly arched (NEVER round your lower back).

Step #5: With the bar hanging down in front of you, pull the bar up until it touches your lower abdomen. Squeeze your shoulder blades for a second at the top before lowering the bar under control back to the starting position.

Step #6: Repeat for desired repetitions.

Exercise #2 One-Arm Dumbbell Rows:

Step #1: Put one knee and arm on a bench and grab a dumbbell in the other hand.

Step #2: With the dumbbell extended down as far as possible and your back straight, row the dumbbell up without turning you shoulder and without swinging your arm. (Note: your arm should come up and back instead of just upwards, this will target the lat muscle more effectively.)

Step #3: Squeeze your back muscles for a second at the top, then lower the dumbbell under control back to the start position.

Step #4: Repeat with the other arm for desired repetitions.

Exercise #3 Standing Dumbbell Lateral Raise:

Step #1: While standing with your feet shoulder width apart, grab a dumbbell in each hand and hold the dumbbells out to your sides.

Step #2: While leading with your elbows and without swinging your torso, raise both dumbbells up and outwards to your sides until your arms are parallel to the ground.

Step #3: Squeeze your deltoids at the top of the movement before lowering the dumbbells back down in a controlled manner. (To put more stress on the deltoids, DO NOT let the dumbbells drop back down but rather resist the dumbbells on the way down.

Step #4: Repeat for desired repetitions.

Exercise #4 Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press:

Step #1: Sit down on a bench with a back support and hold a dumbbell in each hand.

Step #2: While holding the dumbbells in the top position at about ear level, press both dumbbells up simultaneously until they almost touch at the top. (Note: In order to keep constant tension on the deltoids, do not lock your elbows out at the top.)

Step #3: Lower the dumbbells under control while resisting on the way down. 

Step #4: Repeat for desired repetitions.

Exercise #5 Underhand Grip Pull-Ups/Chins

Step #1: Grab the bar with an underhand grip and your palms facing towards your body.

Step #2: With your body extended, cross your legs behind your back and pull yourself up until your chin is at an even level with the bar.

Step #3: While squeezing your shoulder blades together in the top position, slowly begin to lower yourself back down until your arms are fully extended again.

Step #4: Repeat for desired repetitions.

The amazing 49-day body transformation

Did you ever wonder how some people get "better than average" fat loss and muscle gains in a ridiculously short amount of time?

A perfect example is those Body Transformation Contest before and after pictures.

Sometimes these transformation winners look so good you scratch your head and wonder whether there might be some photoshop trickery going on there... it has been known to happen.

But the truth is, some people REALLY do achieve remarkable body transformations - fast - and there is NO trickery involved... somehow, they just rocked it!

How do they do it? What's their secret?

Well, best-selling fitness author and fat loss coach Tom Venuto recently posted the results from his mega-successful "Burn The Fat Challenge" contest.

Sure enough, some of the before and after pictures are mind blowing... especially when you consider there are only 49 days between the before and the after...

http://bit.ly/ftNPJs

But more importantly than looking at the photos which are very inspirational and motivating when you see regular people - busy dads and moms in their 40's - WINNING these types of body improvement contests...

The real priceless part, is where Tom de-constructed how they did it and wrote down the 5 common denominators all the winners had in common.

These are the factors that help explain how some people routinely blow past "typical" results (like dropping only a pound or two a week), while others seem to plod along at a snail's pace.

It's enlightening - and very motivational at the same time.

Get Ripped And Lean - By Avoiding These 2 Mistakes

By Adi Crnalic, ISSA C.P.T
Natural Bodybuilding Champion & Top Fitness Author
Massive-MuscleBuilding-System.com

Talking to some so called "experts", you would get the impression that attaining a lean and ripped body is more complicated than rocket science, but in reality it's really not that complicated at all.

So in this article, I'd like to show how NOT to go about losing body fat. There are many mistakes people make with their diet and training when attempting to get lean but these two are the worst that you could ever make.

How Not To Get Ripped Method #1: Fad Dieting.

Starvation diets deprive your body of the vital nutrients it needs to operate effectively. Because your body is not receiving balanced amounts of food from your diet, you will go into "starvation mode".

In "starvation mode", your body starts to use its own muscle tissue for energy rather than using body fat, as a non-deprived body does. Once you choose to get off the diet (when you start to feel deprived and unhappy) you'll quickly gain all your previous pounds back again.

You gain the weight back because you now carry less muscle to burn the calories from the foods you're eating. And because you've been starving for all this time, you're likely to pile on the junk food.

How Not To Get Ripped Method #2: Not Focusing On Building Muscle.

As you now know, losing lean muscle tissue will cause you to gain excess fat.

Losing just a small amount of lean muscle will cause your body to ineffectively use calories. Essentially, the food you eat gets stored as fat, since there is no additional muscle tissue to burn extra calories.

Having insufficient amounts of muscle also slows down your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). Your RMR is basically the daily amount of calories that the body uses to maintain your body weight.

The more lean muscle mass you've got, the higher your RMR will be and the more you're able to "eat whatever you like without gaining fat".

Well, you can't actually eat "whatever" and expect to get ripped and muscular, but one or two cheat meals a week won't sabotage your progress.

So by having a higher RMR, you can actually eat MORE food and not gain any body fat.

Getting lean and ripped is not that complicated, as long as you stay away from fad diets and  focus on building lean muscle tissue, you'll be well on your way.

Enhance Your Fitness Program With Healthy Convenience Foods

Not many people combine the thought of getting in shape with convenience foods. It isn't a typical association that takes place when discussing fitness programs. Convenience food isn't usually considered the epitome of healthy eating, but there are some convenience foods perfectly suited for healthy living. Let's take a look at three categories and their healthier convenience food choices while on a fitness program:

Snacks

Everyone who is on a diet and exercise program knows that small snacks throughout the day helps the body metabolism stay on track. The trick is to choose snacks that are low in calories and high in nutrients so the calories you do consume are not empty.

There are many foods that qualify in this category. Consider nibbling on a half cup of raw almonds or walnuts for a real power boost. Celery dipped in hummus is another quick pick-me-up that not only adds nutrition but also much needed hydration for the body. If you make your own hummus, save some of those garbanzo beans and roast them in a little olive oil; then lightly salt and you've got a crunchy snack that's ready when you are.

Adding low fat yogurt to your list of snack foods will not only give you another source of calcium and protein, but will also provide healthy bacteria which aids in digestion. Dried fruits are a quick way to sweeten up the yogurt without adding refined sugar. Fresh and frozen fruit will also perk up that cup of yogurt. Throw in a bit of healthy granola for crunch and even more nutrition.

Ready-made trail mix and snack bars are an especially fast way to get a bit of nutrition in your system. Be sure to check the label of any prepackaged food to be sure of the different health benefits. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, choose your snack accordingly.

Drinks

Of all the convenient drinks you can consume, believe it or not, water is the best. Helping to flush extra fats from your body, drinking liberal amounts of water throughout the day can have a dramatic effect on your fitness levels. If your fitness program includes extreme exercise, weight lifting, running, walking long periods of time, you can add bottles of vitamin-enhanced and electrolyte balancing water to add additional nutrition.

A great option for adding nutrition to your diet while you're in a fitness program is with fruit and vegetable smoothies. You don't need fancy equipment, just a blender. Add milk, banana, flax seed, and honey for a tasty and nutrient-rich drink. Other fruits and berries, like papaya and blueberries, are known for their super-food status among fitness folks. Mix up a variety of drinks using whole foods for the best results.

If you are seriously working out on a regular basis, there are a variety of drinks available on the market to help with your fitness goals. Protein shakes and other forms of energy supplements can be found at health food stores or online. Beware that these supplements are meant for the serious fitness buff. If you are lifting weights, building muscle, or training for a marathon, you may consider these in addition to your daily dose of water and nutrient rich foods.

Meals

Large convenient meals don't exist. At least healthy ones don't. While you could swing by the local burger joint and pack on enough calories to feed a small village, this is not the way to go when trying to get healthy. By keeping meals smaller, you can retain the convenience factor and maintain your healthy goals.

Salads probably come to mind first when thinking of low calorie nutritious meals. You can add the convenience factor by buying bagged, cut up vegetables when you can. Make your salads with a variety of greens, topped with tuna, or shred a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Include a healthy mix of veggies, top with nuts and a sliced hard boiled egg for a filling meal that's good for you. Use a light homemade vinaigrette dressing instead of a bottled creamy dressing like Ranch, Bleu Cheese, or Thousand Island to avoid the unwanted calories, fat, salt, and even sugar.

Also, beans such as black beans, garbanzo beans, pinto beans, navy beans, and the like are not only convenient, but are considered the powerhouse of convenience foods. Mix a bunch of beans together in a salad, toss with a vinaigrette dressing, add onion, and you have a filling meal. Keep a bunch of cooked brown rice on hand and when it's dinnertime, heat together with two or three varieties of beans with tomatoes, garlic, and onion, and you have a satisfying bean and rice casserole. Throw a couple cans of beans in some vegetable or chicken broth and in minutes you have a hearty and healthy soup. Staying home nice and snug after a workout and throwing together some beans and rice sure sounds more convenient than sitting at a drive-through window.

Getting healthy while feasting on convenience foods is not typically talked about in the same breath. Eating fast and healthy while on a fitness program is an often overlooked struggle. But, with a little planning and attention to detail, you can enjoy healthy snacks and meals that are ready in minutes.

Top 7 Reasons To Weight Train

By Adi Crnalic, ISSA C.P.T
Natural Bodybuilding Champion & Top Fitness Author
Massive-MuscleBuilding-System.com

Training with weights will help you greatly improve your overall health and well being. Here are the top 7 reasons why you should exercise with weights:

Reason #1: You will burn more calories and fat while you are resting

Proper weight training increases your muscle mass which directly leads to a higher metabolism. A high metabolism will burn calories 24 hours a day even while you’re asleep!

And a high metabolism will directly lead to more fat loss.

Reason #2: Weight Training Will Alleviate Pain

Regular weight training is a great way to alleviate chronic muscle and joint pain. Persistent back pain can be lessened by strengthening your core, and you’ll protect yourself against injury. People are amazed when the chronic pain that they’ve lived with for years begins to disappear when they start on an effective weight training program.

Reason #3: To Increase Lean Muscle

More muscle is good for a variety of reasons. You see, muscle uses up many more calories each day than body fat. One pound of muscle added will burn an additional 40 to 60 calories every day at rest - compared to a measly 9 calories per pound of fat.

When you train with weights your body composition will change to contain more lean tissue, thus resulting in extra calories burned while you sleep. What could be better than that?

Reason #4: You’ll Stay Looking Young

Tim D. Spector, a highly regarded professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College in London, recently led a study on the effects of weight training on aging.

The results were amazing. They found that exercise appears to slow the shriveling of the protective tips on bundles of genes inside cells (called telomeres), which means a slowing of the aging process.

"The data suggests that the act of exercising may actually protect the body against the aging process," said Spector.

Here's what the study concluded:

•Telomeres cap the ends of chromosomes and every time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter.

•Once a telomere gets too short, that cell can no longer divide.

•Aging occurs as more and more cells reach the end of their telomeres and die. This results in weakened muscles, skin wrinkles, loss of eyesight and hearing, organ failure and slowed metal functioning.

•The study analyzed the telomeres from the white bloods cells of twins over a 10-year period. Telomere length was used as a marker for the rate of biological aging.

•People who did 100 minutes of weekly weight training had telomeres that looked like those from someone about 5-6 years younger than those who did 16 minutes of exercise each week.

•People who did 3 hours of intense weight training every week had telomeres that looked like those from someone about 9 years younger.

Reason #5: To Prevent The Likelihood of Developing Type 2 Diabetes

Consistent weight training helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. This is something that people with type 2 diabetes, or those at risk for type 2 diabetes gain substantial benefits from.

Exercise improves the body's use of insulin, and the related fat loss improves insulin sensitivity.

Reason #6: To Lower Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels

Weight training has been shown to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels for these two reasons:

•Weak Heart Muscles pump little blood with lots of effort. With weight training will strengthen your heart muscles and condition them to pump more blood with less effort. The stronger your heart is the less pressure will be exerted on your arteries.

•Weight training increases your HDL levels - this means a lower risk for developing heart disease. Other heart disease risk factors such as weight, diabetes and high blood pressure all show improvement with regular weight training.

Reason #7: To Feel Great

The first thing that my clients tell me after starting on a weight training program is how much better they feel.

Most didn't even realize how bad they felt. It is easy to get used to feeling sluggish and unmotivated.

Weight training boosts your energy levels and makes you feel amazing.

The quickest, easiest way to guarantee that you’ll reach your muscle building goals is to follow a highly effective weight training program. Proper instruction and proven, targeted training techniques and strategies will skyrocket your muscle building results.

If those 7 reasons aren’t enough to convince you to start weight training, then nothing will be. Start training with weights today and eliminate your excuses.

7 Secrets to Help You Pack on Ripped Muscle (FREE Gift)

There has been some recent developments when it comes to muscle fiber types that I think is really going to affect you in a major way.

Our bodies are made up of different types of muscle fibers. Type I fibers are known as ‘slow twitch’ fibers and have a high resistance to fatigue while Type II fibers are
known as ‘fast twitch’ fibers and have a low resistance to fatigue.

Slow twitch fibers support aerobic activities while fast twitch fibers are built for weightlifting and other activities that require short bursts of energy.

Guys who are built with lots of Type I muscle fibers make great marathon runners but terrible weightlifters.

Likewise, guys who are mostly made up of Type II fibers are ideally built to lift weights  but poorly suited for long-term aerobic activities such as long distance running.

However, by applying certain scientific principles, it is possible to create hybrid muscles that have the best characteristics of both Type I and Type II muscle fibers.

So What…..Who Cares?
-------------------------------

You should, that’s who.  Here’s why:

These hybrid muscle fibers aren’t puffy and bloated looking, they are dense ripped and strong.

Plus they utilize 173% more fat for energy than ordinary muscles, which is great when you have a goal of not only building muscle but also staying lean with low body fat levels.

How do you build these muscles?

Review of the Lean Hybrid Muscle Building Program

by Doberman Dan

In the last ten years or so there has been an explosion in the number bodybuilding, training and diet books that absolutely promise to transform your body into the sculpted form you've always dreamed of in just a few short weeks. The problem though is that most of them are trash. They were written not so much to help you get the body you want but to help the author turn a quick buck. That's where Lean Hybrid Muscle (LHM) departs from the pack and leaves them in the dust. Why is that? Because it works-that's why.

One of the things that really sets Lean Hybrid Muscle apart from countless other "get fit" books, programs and routines I've seen is that it is designed to work with our bodies' natural systems, not against them. That in itself is the key difference between LHM and the rest. It also allows you to develop a personalized program that is unique to your body's particular needs. Others don't do that. They make the assumption that because what they did worked for them, it will work for anybody else who does the same thing. The problem is that this just isn't true.

Here's an example. The guys you typically see in the fitness or bodybuilding magazines are genetically gifted-they tend to be naturally lean and muscular. For the rest of the normal world, various techniques like "bulking and cutting" have emerged. Bulking and cutting runs counter to the way that our bodies are designed to operate. That's why with bulking and cutting you usually wind up with a choice: lean and weak or strong and fat. Lean Hybrid Muscle training though, shows you that it is entirely possible to build mass and get lean at the same time.

And what the Lean Hybrid Muscle Building system does is lay out everything you need to know to develop your own program that works for you. You'll learn all about the various training philosophies that are out there along with what's good about them and not so good. The book also shows you how to position yourself physically and mentally for success. LHM calls this Constructing the optimum anabolic environment. Along the way you'll also learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine and how incorporating elements of this ancient philosophy into your training philosophy can set you on a path to success.

The exercise chapters are some of the best around. By performing the exercises they way they're shown here, you'll be able to actually build muscle and burn fat at the same time. LHM has uncovered a way to tap into long dormant systems that enabled our ancestors like the Spartans to be lean, muscular, strong and big. The exercises here will actually enable you to build a different type of muscle-lean hybrid muscle-that is unlike anything you've seen before.

The Lean Hybrid Muscle workout also devotes plenty of space to nutrition, teaching you how to develop a plan that works for you. It's also got a very good section about supplements, helping you to understand the truth from the hype and what works from what doesn't.

It's really got the whole package and all in all I would say that LHM is a great read that unlike a lot of programs out there will really help you achieve the results you want to see. For more information visit this page by clicking here.

Get off the NSAID Train! Go for Drug-Free Relief, Instead

By Dr. Mark Wiley, David Levine & Steve Hefferon

Chronic pain is persistent, long-lasting discomfort that doesn't resolve itself or respond to routine pain-relief methods. Clearly, despite their arsenal of elaborate and costly hi-tech medical procedures, doctors cannot diagnose how to stop this growing national health emergency.

Today more than 150 million Americans suffer chronic pain. This amounts to a whopping 100% increase in just a dozen years! How is it possible, with our modern scientific mainstream medicine, that people are suffering more, not less?

When it comes to pain relief, most people turn first to their medicine cabinet and have more than one pain reliever on hand to choose from. It's as if while we were children we hopped aboard the NSAID Train, and the pain relief destination was never reached. There are so many options along the way... and yet none of them are healthy. Let's look at why.

Acetaminophen

While acetaminophen (Tylenol) offers temporary pain relief and fever reduction, it does not reduce swelling (inflammation). It can be harmful to the liver and kidney if you take more than the recommended dose.

Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

Yes, NSAID's work fast to relieve acute pain, but they may cause gastrointestinal bleeding. They may also be harmful if you have high blood pressure or kidney disease. And they should NEVER be given to children. Aspirin has been associated with a disease called Reye's syndrome in children.

COX-2 Inhibitors

Yes, these work as well as NSAIDs while being less harsh on the stomach, but numerous reports of heart attacks and stroke have prompted the FDA to re-evaluate the risks and benefits of the COX-2s. COX-2 drugs such as Vioxx and Celebrex were actually taken off the market because of these risks.

Narcotics Painkillers

This class of prescription drugs is powerful, but abuse and addition are serious side effects. An estimated 20 percent of people in the United States have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. The problem is serious and it is growing. The availability of drugs is probably one reason. Doctors are prescribing more drugs for more health problems than ever before. Online pharmacies make it easy to get prescription drugs without a prescription, even for youngsters.
When experiencing pain and deciding whether or not to reach for OTC or RX drugs, remember that pain is not the biggest problem. The biggest problem is...Drugs Don't Heal!

If you are still in pain from a recent injury, or are suffering chronic pain, then you know the Golden Rule of Pain: Drugs don't fix the problem, they only mask the symptoms. And pain is a symptom, not the problem.

Pain relief medications should only be used temporarily, if needed. The more natural and preventive approach is to understand the pain problem, and take proactive approaches to relieving pain and preventing new pain. And there are so many options for pill-free pain relief to choose from. None better than healthy lifestyle choices.

Relief Is In Lifestyle Choices

Natural, lasting drug-free pain relief is based on wide reaching lifestyle changes. Simple changes can go a long way to reducing and preventing pain from your life. Here are some tips.

Maintain a healthy weight

There is no question that eating healthy is not easy nowadays, whether you're at home or at a restaurant. But at the very least, you must try to decrease your intake of sugars and hydrogenated oils and increase your daily intake of fiber. Ideally, you should be consuming 35 grams of fiber (that is a ton of fiber, but it's worth shooting for).

Get better sleep

7 to 9 hours of sleep is a must for optimal health; getting a good night's sleep is key to controlling systemic inflammation.

Relax more often to lower stress levels

Find time for yourself throughout the day to focus on your breathing and clear the clutter from your mind; learn to stay focused on the most important tasks in your life.

Exercise on a regular basis

People always ask me: What's the best exercise to do? I always tell them: Do something you like to do and, if your body can tolerate it, aim for 15-20 minutes three times a week.

Manual therapies aid relief

Manual therapies, such as massage, chiropractic and other forms of bodywork do wonders for keeping the body supple, stretched, relaxed, and pain free. The removal or diminishing of trigger points and spasms and the increase in blood flow which brings nutrients and oxygen to painful areas... is like a wonder drug in itself.

Seek alternative practitioners

When your lifestyle changes have done as much as they can to reduce your pain, it may be time to see a practitioner of alternative therapies. There are so many great methods to choose from, including acupuncture, Emotional Field Therapy, Rolfing, Alexander Technique, Sedona Method, etc. It is best to do some research into your individual heal issues and seek out a holistic healing method and practitioner that meets your needs. Research and consultations go a long way to helping you decide.

Use natural Homeopathic remedies

When on-going pain relief is sought—as in chronic condition and immediate acute trauma—we recommend turning to natural Homeopathic products for help. Systemic proteolytic enzymes, such as found in the formulas Heal-N-Soothe and Rub-On-Relief, offer methods of removing metabolic waste from blood and tissue while bringing fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to help healing—without the synthetic drug side-effects.

In the end, what is important is that you give up your reliance on prescription and over-the-counter pain drugs. They do more long-term harm than short-term good, and should only be used in emergencies. Making the necessary and correct lifestyle changes will do much more to provide lasting pain relief, but putting you into a life of prevention... which is always the best medicine!

Bodyweight Exercises for Fat Loss and Bootcamps

Couple of years ago, in response to reader demands, I put together a little workout called Bodyweight Cardio.

It was a hit, and last spring I created an even better version called "Bodyweight Cardio 3".

And within that program, the most popular was Workout B, where you do 5 circuits of 5 exercises, spending 1 minute on each exercise.

I want to give you the first 3 rounds today. Here we go:

Round #1
- Jumping Jacks
- Bodyweight Squats
- T-Pushups (alternate sides)
- Repeated Vertical Jumps
- Prisoner Lunges

Round #2
- Pushup
- Prisoner Squat
- Squat Thrust
- Duck Under
- Burpee

Round #3
- Seal Jump
- Spiderman Climb
- Get Up
- Side-Step
- Run in Place

Again, this was one of my most popular programs of 2010, and if you want Rounds 4 & 5, plus workouts A, C, and D from that program, AND more at home bodyweight workouts, you can get them all for only $19.95:

How To Build Big Arms - In 5 Simple Steps

By Adi Crnalic, ISSA C.P.T

Natural Bodybuilding Champion & Top Fitness Author
http://bit.ly/f5IIt7

Any guy who’s steps foot into a gym does so with the intention of owning a bigger and stronger set of arms. Unfortunately, most guys don’t take the proper steps in their workout routine thus their chances of building huge “guns” are very slim.

You have to realize that your arm muscles (biceps, triceps and forearms) are very small compared to your chest, back and legs. Far too many trainees make the mistake of training arms (especially biceps) far too often and with too many sets.

Arm training should not be complicated and if you follow these 5 simple steps you’ll have an amazing pair of “guns” not too long from today.

Big Arms Step #1 Focus On Compound Movements

To build the biceps, triceps and forearm muscles, nothing comes close to compound movements with free weights. Free weights allow for the greatest range of motion and mirror your muscles natural movement.

No machine can ever give you the same stimulation as good old dumbbells and barbells as machines restrict your movement to a linear plane of motion. If you really like training with machines or cables then I recommend you finish off your workout on a machine, but never begin your workouts on one.

Big Arms Step #2 Keep Your Arm Workouts Short

This counts not only for the arms but for every other bodypart as well. To develop truly impressive biceps and triceps I recommend you train them on their own day instead of at the end of your chest and/or back workouts.

This will let you put 100% focus and intensity into doing arms thus resulting in better and faster gains. Remember that the biceps and triceps are very small muscles and there’s absolutely no reason to spend 2 hours at the gym working them.

Your arm workouts should last no longer than 1 hour. This is more than enough time as you’ll have 20 minutes for biceps, 20 minutes for triceps and 20 minutes for forearms. Unless your forearms tend to grow and respond well from biceps training, then you can spend a half hour on biceps and triceps each and skip forearms.

Remember that the law of diminishing returns applies especially well to weight training. Your arms will get plenty of indirect work from back and chest training so you don’t need to do too much for the biceps and triceps.

Big Arms Step #3 Focus On Quality

Quality means performing each and every single set and repetition with 100% focus and intensity. If you’re not putting every ounce of energy into each set then you your arms simply won’t grow as fast and big as you’d like them to. I see far too many trainees at the gym using too much weight and momentum and not focusing on making the biceps and triceps do the work.

Focus on making the muscle do the work and focus on getting an intense contraction at the end of each repetition. Squeeze your biceps hard for a second before lowering the weights on any curling movement and lock out your elbows at the top for any triceps movement.

Big Arms Step #4 Keep Your Rest Periods Short

Your rest period in-between sets should take no longer than 2 minutes or 120 seconds. 2 minutes is just long enough to let most of the lactic acid that accumulates during an intense set flush out of your muscles but not long enough so that you lose your pump and your muscles get cold.

Research has shown that taking shorter rest periods in between sets increases your body’s growth hormone production which will directly lead to more muscle mass. Research also indicates that 2 minutes is an optimal time for hypertrophy or muscle growth and that anything less is better for developing muscle endurance and anything more than 3 minutes is best for developing muscle power.

Big Arms Step #5 Train Heavy

Too many guys completely misunderstand the concept of training heavy especially while working the arms. Never choose quantity over quality in your arm workouts but rather quality and quantity. Perform 8 to 12 repetitions for biceps and triceps on every set and focus on reaching failure on at least one set for each exercise.

If you’re able to do more than 12 repetitions on any arm exercise than you are not using enough weight to stimulate the type 2b muscle fibers which are mainly responsible for muscle growth. Performing less than 6 repetitions will not recruit many of those same type 2b muscle fibers thus leading to less muscle growth.

Follow these 5 simple steps in your arm workouts and you’re guaranteed to have bigger and stronger guns in no time at all.

Take control of Arthritis, and Get Your Life Back!

Red, burning, swollen and so stiff you don't want to move...that's what those who suffer from arthritis experience on a daily basis. If you know this all to well, you are probably one of the 46 million Americans (that's 1 out of every 5 people) that are living with arthritis every day. To better understand how to get relief from this debilitating disease we need to dive deeper into its root cause.

Some of the types of arthritis which are associated with inflammation include:

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • gout
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • polymyalgia rheumatica

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis actually means joint (arthr) inflammation (itis). Arthritis can be used to define a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints or any part of your body. Additionally, it can damage the joint cartilage which can lead to joint weakness, instability and visible deformities that can interfere and, in severe cases, limit a person's ability to perform most basic daily tasks such as walking, climbing stairs, using a computer keyboard, washing dishes or brushing your teeth. Arthritis can affect anyone regardless of age and most commonly affects joints in the knees, hips, hands and spine. If left undiagnosed and not treated properly, arthritis can cause irreversible damage to the joints, bones, organs, and skin. Not to mention dramatically impair your quality of life.

Arthritis-related conditions primarily affect the muscles and the bones but it is also considered to be systemic, affecting the whole body. Arthritis can cause damage to any bodily organ or system, including the lungs, kidneys, blood vessels, skin and even the heart. The Arthritis Foundation sites two independent studies (Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota) both of which prove that the widespread inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis is linked to heart disease and an increased risk of early death.

No one really knows the exact cause of arthritis but there are certain risk factors to keep in mind:

  • Genetics - likely to contribute to risk but no one knows how much.
  • Age - the older you are the more at risk you become.
  • Weight - maintaining a healthy weight will ease the load on the joints.
  • Previous Injury - major injuries are likely to contribute to risk.
  • Occupational Hazards - repetitive, high demand jobs increase risk.
  • Certain Sports - high level, high demand sports can contribute to arthritis (however, general exercise is always a plus)
  • Illness or infection - an infection in the joint or gout can lead to arthritis.

What we do know is that when you have arthritis your immune system goes into over-drive and causes the joints to swell and become inflamed. Therefore, treating the inflammation becomes key in managing the pain and discomfort associated with this condition.

Sadly enough, the Arthritis Foundation reports that half of those Americans with arthritis don't believe anything can be done to help ease their pain. You may be in that situation yourself, having thrown your hands up in frustration and simply decided to live with your pain. The good news is that by reducing the inflammation you can significantly ease the painful symptoms associated with arthritis.

Here are a few ways to reduce your inflammation:

  • Exercise - less weight equals less stress on joints
  • Diet - Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole-grain products; limit sugar, salt and fat (especially saturated fat found in animal products)
  • Rest - a good balance between rest and activity is the key to joint health
  • Over-the-counter and prescription medications - while these may provide temporary relief by masking the pain they are not always get to the root of the problem - inflammation. They can also have serious side effects, especially with long-term use.
  • Natural anti-inflammatory supplements - probably the most promising natural approach to reducing inflammation in a long while. We recommend looking for supplements containing systemic enzymes and all-natural herbal ingredients.

By taking these simple steps to reducing inflammation you will be well on your way to managing your arthritis pain and it devastating effects on your mind and body. Everyone should strive to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle for optimal health and wellbeing.

The Truth About the "NEW" Fat Loss Cardio

Evolution of Fat Loss Cardio

I've been meaning to write this email for a long time. Today I'm going to give you the story of how I solved the problem of getting an efficient and effective fat loss program finished in 45 minutes. Essentially, how I invented Turbulence Training.

And then I'll end with a sample TT workout for you...

But first, let's take a trip down memory lane to the winter of 98-99. I was but a lowly grad student, studying the effects of androstenedione (the supplement taken by the mighty Mark McGwire during his record-breaking home run quest in '98).

In my study (which was published in the Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology for any science nerds like myself out there), we had guys use the supplement and go through a couple of weight training sessions. By February of '99 I was stuck in the lab, analyzing the blood samples using some fancy radio-active isotopes.

And when I say stuck in the lab, I mean STUCK. I'd get there at 7am, and record my last data point at 11pm. Sixteen hours of mad science. And if I wasn't there, I was downstairs in the medical library, studying papers on testosterone and training.

Now coming from a very athletic background, this sedentary lifestyle didn't sit well with me. But there I was, studying for a degree in Exercise Physiology and left with no time for exercise. Or so I thought.

Fortunately, I actually had a 50 minute window once per day of "down-time" while the lab's gamma-counter analyzed blood samples.

That left me 50 minutes to get to the gym (5 minutes across campus) and get a workout in the remaining 40 or so minutes. I knew that if I applied my studies to the workout, I could get maximum results in minimum time.

As a former athlete, I knew that I had to find a way to stay fit and to avoid the fat gain that comes with working long hours in a sedentary environment. And I also had to stay true to the high-school bodybuilder I once was, so there was no way I was willing to sacrifice my muscle to one of those long-cardio, low protein fat-loss plans that were popular at the time.

Instead, I had to draw on my academic studies and my experiences working with athletes as the school's Strength & Conditioning Coach.

I knew that sprint intervals were associated with more fat loss than slow cardio, and I knew that you could also increase aerobic fitness by doing sprints (but you can't increase sprint performance by doing aerobic training).

So clearly, intervals were (and ARE!) superior to long slow cardio.

I had seen first hand the incredible results of sprint intervals in the summer and fall, as the athletes made huge fitness improvements and shed winter fat in a short time using my interval programs. I knew that intervals had to be the next step in the evolution of cardio.

The biggest benefit of intervals? A lot of results in a short amount of time. I knew that I only had 40 minutes to train, and therefore I could only spend 15-20 minutes doing intervals.

Now onto the strength training portion of the workouts. I knew that a high-volume bodybuilding program wasn't going to cut it - I just didn't have time. But in the past year I had read so many lifting studies, that I knew exactly what exercises I needed to do to maximize my lifting time in the gym.

Those exercises were standing, multi-muscle, movements such as squats, presses, rows, power cleans, and plenty of other standing single-leg exercises. I knew those exercises would bring me far more results than those people sitting on machines would ever achieve.

And I also knew that I had to lift heavier than the average Joe or Jane Gym-goer lifts. I just knew that doing lighter weights and high-reps wasn't going to cut it. And a research study from 2001 later showed that I was right - when women did 8 reps per set, they had a significantly greater increase in post-workout metabolism than if they did 15 reps per set.

So I had my plan. Bust my tail over to the gym, through the cold, dreary Canadian winter afternoon, and do a quick but thorough warm-up (specific to my lifts - none of that 5 minutes on the treadmill waste of time).

Once I got through the warm-up, I did as many sets as I could in the remainder of the 20 minutes for strength training.

At that point, I knew that supersets were the only way to go if I wanted to maximize the number of sets I could do...so the non-competing superset of Turbulence Training was put in place.

By non-competing, I mean that the 2 exercises in the superset don't interfere with one another. So you can use upper and lower body exercises together, or pushing and pulling exercises. Just be careful not to use two grip-intensive exercises together in a superset - otherwise, one exercise will suffer, if not both.

And then I followed up the strength training with intervals, as I knew these had to follow the lifting, otherwise it would not be the correct exercise order. Remember, intervals first leads to premature fatigue. Lift first, cardio later. Forget that old wives tale about doing cardio first to burn more fat. That's junk.

You know, I remember the exact day and exact workout that this all came together into the Turbulence Training program. It hit me as I was finishing my intervals. I knew I had found something that was like fat loss magic.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to put it in a pill. But I've been able to put it down on paper in all of the TT manuals.

The exact workout I used that day went like this...

Warm-up
1 set of Bodyweight Squats
1 set of pushups
1 set of Squats with the empty bar
1 set of light dumbbell chest presses
1 set of moderate weight barbell squats
1 set of moderate weight dumbbell chest presses

Strength Training Superset #1
Barbell Squats paired with Dumbbell Chest Presses 3 supersets, aiming for 8 reps per side per set

Strength Training Superset #2
DB Rows paired with Barbell Forward Lunges 3 supersets, aiming for 8 reps per set

Stationary Bike Intervals
After a warm-up, I did 6 intervals of 45 seconds work and 45 seconds rest, finishing with a cool-down.

And from that point in time, I've tried to share this and all the other Turbulence Training workouts with as many men and women as possible. The same men and women that I would see day-in and day-out performing the same ineffective slow-cardio fat loss programs, and not making a darn change month after month. And every day they would see me, soaked in sweat, feeling great and looking lean, and finishing another TT workout.

Eventually I noticed these other men and women weren't around as consistently as before, and then soon enough they would drop out completely - after all, they weren't getting results with their slow cardio and aerobics classes (yep, those were still around in '99!).

And so here we are today...thousands of TT users later, with national fitness magazines like Men's Health, Men's Fitness, and Shape spreading the good word about Turbulence Training.

Thousands of TT users, dozens of personal trainers, and even several national fitness magazines all agree with me, Turbulence Training is the #1 way to fast fat loss.

Thanks for being a part of the TT Lifestyle Revolution, and for sharing this new and improved fat loss training and cardio system with the world.

If you haven't already, get your own copy of the TT workouts and nutrition guidelines here:

So when you see someone frustrated with their ineffective fat loss program, tell them there is a better way. It's research-based, efficient, and most of all, effective. And yes, it goes against the crowd. But it works.

And it's now better than ever,

Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
Creator, Turbulence Training

PS - Don't know where to start?

If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr's nutrition guidelines...eating properly will be the biggest factor in your early success.

Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program right through.

If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

Increase fat loss with this old bodybuilder's trick

This is a classic fat loss trick of bodybuilders, figure competitors and fitness models... carb cycling.

http://bit.ly/eFUzJo

This is also the way many bodybuilders and physique athletes do "low carb" - raising and lowering carbs in a pre-determined cycle instead of always staying on low carbs:

Why? It supports training better... it's easier to follow... it helps you avoid plateaus and possibly even triggers 'body recomposition' - where you gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

Here's how it works and what you can expect:

How to Eliminate Muscle and Joint Pain Fast

I don't know about you, but when I hear the laundry list of side effects that rattle on for what seems like an eternity after the commercials, I wouldn't dare take a prescription (or even over the counter for that matter) pain reliever...

The side effects are often worse than the pain you're taking it for... who wants to trade a sore back for diarrhea, headache, risk of stroke or death???

So, I wanted to tell you about an all-natural way to eliminate pain...

A few months back, one of my customers wrote in to ask if I had any recommendations for her...

She said her joints were so painful she could hardly exercise any more... she was gaining weight and feeling frustrated and depressed.

Aside from some stretches I told her to try, I also mentioned that she should try this all-natural pain relief product I learned about a while back. Unlike lots of people, she actually did as I suggested and she recently emailed me and said that she hasn't felt this good since she was a teenager!

Anyway, the product is called Heal-n-Soothe and it was created by a fellow health and fitness expert, Jesse Cannone... and he has agreed to allow me to actually give away full, 90-count bottles to my readers... This is a real, $59 value...

If you are suffering from any type of ache or pain I highly recommend you try this product.

Click Here to Request Your FREE Bottle

Not only is it super effective at reducing pain and inflammation naturally, but I myself, and many others have found that it reduces muscle soreness and allows me to recover from strenuous workouts faster than normal.

But don't wait even a second because Jesse told me he only has 1000 bottles set aside to give away for free and as you can imagine, they are going to go very fast.

Be sure to let me know how well it works for you once you've tried it.

I just spoke with the creators of 21 Day Fast Mass Building and they were SO pumped that over 2,000 people downloaded their science and strategy based program promising 12 pounds of muscle in 21 days but they were upset about ONE thing...

A lot of people missed out.

That may have been you and they did something special for the next 72-hours.  Instead of grabbing the robust $137 11-part package at the site right now, they have assembled a mini  $39.95 7-part package for the next 72 hours.  Check it out for yourself....

If you're serious about gaining muscle and losing fat than I would seriously check out what two of the most respected muscle building authors on the planet have created - a unique cycling method to gain muscle w/o fat in a rapid rate period.  The pictures of the guys speak for themselves and for the insane 3-day sale they have going for the mini-saver package, I hope this helps you get your hands on it if the $77 rate was a little steep for you last week.

You’re not still using this for pain are you?

You’re not still using NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen or prescription versions) for back aches to help get you moving again, headaches, sprains, arthritis, and other nagging pains, are you?

You already know they give only temporary relief, but did you know this is because they do not fix the underlying cause of your pain, and that’s why it comes back so fast…

NSAIDs can also raise the risk of ulcers and heart problems… should you take an NSAID every day if you have arthritis or chronic pain, when this unique natural alternative is available (more on that below)?

I recently learned some surprising and welcoming facts from a doctor friend of mine who spilled the beans on the TRUTH ABOUT PAIN and how to fight it effectively instead of just trying to mask it like you’re probably doing now.

I’m going to explain some of what I learned today, including the source of your pain, and then give you the all natural solution that’s working for us in place of potentially dangerous drugs…  sound good?

Alright, let’s get to it…

There are ONLY two basic physiological types of pain:

1. Tissue-pain

and

2. Nerve-pain

If you have a condition like sciatica, herniated disc, stenosis or scoliosis you probably suffer from BOTH types of pain. You have both tissue-pain caused by inflammation and this causes nerve-pain by exerting pressure on your nerves (sciatica is a very common example of this).

If you’ve ever injured your back, the pain is almost all inflammation related… because inflammation is your body’s natural reaction to trauma.

Which brings me to a VERY important reason WHY YOUR PAIN ISN’T GOING AWAY LIKE IT DID WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER…

To get rid of your pain, you’ll have to first get rid of the tissue inflammation…

…and second, get rid of any ongoing causes of inflammation.

Also, do you feel a lot of nerve pain?

Things like shooting lines of pain, burning, numbness, and pinching tend to be nerve pain.

But guess what?

Often the pressure and pinching of the nerve occurs because the surrounding tissue is inflamed and expanded!

Now, here’s why your pain won’t go away, especially as you age…

As you get older your production of the enzymes that reduce your inflammation decrease, so your pain goes away slower, and slower as you age.

Remember spraining an ankle, or pulling a muscle during your 20s?

You probably recovered in a couple of weeks or less. But the same injury now nags at you for months… (I know this from my weekly basketball game… my wife is always saying I come  home each week with a new ‘nagging’ injury… and as much as I hate to admit it, it’s true… sometimes even the slightest pull or strain lasts at least twice as long as it used to!)

Your body just isn’t dealing with inflammation as well as it used to… and I’ve found if you don’t reduce the inflammation the pain is just not going to go away.

This is why most doctors will prescribe an anti-inflammatory (NSAID) when you have pain.  But none of us want to be stuck on prescription drugs all the time (not to mention that some stats show prescription anti-inflammatories have a terrible record of putting people’s lives unnecessarily at risk).

The All Natural Pain Fighting Solution You’ve Been Waiting For: SYSTEMIC ENZYME THERAPY

Systemic Enzyme Therapy has been used in numerous countries throughout the world for over 50 years, yet most people have no idea what it is and that it’s readily available to help fix your pain and get you moving again!

Enzymes are basically the main line of defense against inflammation. Enzymes are NOT anti-inflammatory drugs but rather reduce inflammation by neutralizing the bio-chemicals of inflammation to levels where the creation, repair and regeneration of injured tissues can take place.

Yes, reducing inflammation helps speed up recovery from sprains, strains, fractures, bruises, contusions, surgery and arthritis!

So now you know why NSAID’s may give only temporary relief and do not fix the underlying cause of the problem, whereas systemic enzymes work to reduce the inflammation and promote healing without any side effects…

And the best solution I’ve found to delivery this type of safe natural enzyme therapy to your aching body is something called ‘Heal-N-Soothe’.

Heal-N-Soothe replaces the inflammation-fighting enzymes your body isn’t producing enough of anymore, as the enzymes go right to the root of inflammation where the repair and regeneration of injured tissue takes place.

This stuff neutralizes the bio-chemicals that keep inflammation from going away… just what the doctor ordered!

And this means you can reduce the inflammation and pain naturally… without any of the side effects that are typical of medications.

Did you know the same natural anti-inflammation properties that deliver whole-body pain relief ALSO could fight Heart Attack , Stroke and Alzheimer’s?

The New England Journal of Medicine reports: “there is convincing evidence that inflammation is strongly linked to heart attacks and stroke.”

A Harvard study agreed: “half of all heart attacks are CAUSED by inflammation.”

Plus, a study in The Annals of Neurology , the official journal of the American Neurological Association, concluded: “inflammation is linked to Alzheimer’s and other degenerating diseases.”

There is simply no doubt about it, tissue inflammation in your body is deadly stuff!

And you now know it’s also one of the PRIMARY causes of pain in your body.

If you are not doing anything to address inflammation in your body it will make your life miserable because every day you’ll wake up with more aches and pains…

…your back will hurt more and more as the months go by…

…pain will become a bigger and bigger part of your life.

And finally, inflammation could cause an early death (sounds a bit extreme but it’s true).

But you when you’re using systemic enzyme therapy like those taking this Heal-n-Soothe solution, you’re fighting and reducing tissue inflammation throughout all of your body’s systems…

…you’re reducing inflammation in your muscles, your arteries and blood vessels,  and tissue throughout your entire body so you can get moving again.

Now the coolest part of all of this is I convinced the guys responsible for helping so many people with Heal-N-Soothe to let us try a full 30 day supply for FREE!

Get Moving Again Pain Free With Heal-N-Soothe FREE

Like me you may have had some skepticism about certain natural remedies like this in the past, and you had every right to be, but of course the only way to know for sure that this will work for you too is to try it.  That’s why I DEMANDED that these guys let us try it and see for ourselves… makes sense, right?

There’s one problem though… while they agreed to my demands (lol), they did tell me they can’t do this for everybody, so they’ve limited the number of free bottles for us to about 100… give or take a few, that’s all they can offer right now.

Stop Using Dangerous Drugs That Only Mask The Pain & Try Heal-N-Soothe FREE (1st 100 bottles only)…

I guess most of their supply goes to their Heal-N-Soothe Smartship Program members who have requested to receive a bottle every month automatically, so I understand the limit they’ve put on it.

Anyway, I can’t wait to hear about your experience using Heal-n-Soothe…  after you get your free bottle in the mail and try it out for a few days, make sure to come back and let us know how it’s working for you.

P.S. Alright, and please feel free to forward to your friends and/or family who you think could also benefit

Here’s to getting healthy and pain-free for life,
