How Much Protein Do You Need?

The Mass Building Missing Link…REVEALED!

by Jeff Anderson

What a waste!

I mean, at first, you may not think that the 3 secrets I’m about to share with you deserve the attention I’m giving it.  But your muscles will think differently.  Why?  Because the fact is 90% of all gym rats are totally screwing this up…and they’re actually holding themselves back from their full mass-building potential.

I don’t want YOU to be one of those knuckleheads!  In fact, if you’ll promise yourself to use these simple-yet-powerful tips I’m about to share with you in your mass building workout, then I promise you you’ll be shocked with how much faster you’ll build muscle…

The Secret Path To Gaining More Muscle Mass…

Scientifically speaking, your capacity to build muscle mass is directly connected to your own capacity to naturally boost anabolic hormones within your body (like testosterone, growth hormone, IGF-1, etc.). You already know this because you’ve peeked inside of those muscle mags a time or two, right?  The reason those pro bodybuilders are so massive is because of their use of anabolic steroids that artificially jack their hormones up sky high.  Unfortunately, this artificial path can be extremely dangerous and aren’t worth the side effects for the average Joe.

What you want is natural hormone increases to work with your body to break through your genetic barrier.  Well first, you must understand that your own anabolic system features a “supply and demand” connection. The more muscle fibers you train and the more strenuously you train them, the more natural hormone response you’ll generate. This will translate into new lean muscle mass.

The #1 Mass Building Exercise -
Revealed, Corrected, And Turbo-Charged!

Think about this – the leg muscles (quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves) constitute approximately two thirds of the body’s muscle mass.  By exercising your legs, you actually target a hell of a lot more muscle tissue than other exercise.  This in turn induces a significantly larger anabolic response from your hormonal system. But here’s the best part…those hormones aren’t isolated just to bulking up your legs.  The hormone response you create is also going to be used to slap slabs of new muscle ont your chest, back, shoulders, and arms as well!

In truth, the Barbell Squat has been shown to be the very best mass building workout weapon due to its power in triggering the most muscle fibers all at once, thereby releasing a flood of testosterone along with other anabolic hormones. Regrettably, many serious weightlifters train their legs a lot less compared to other muscles, or perhaps never. And those who do, frequently steer clear of the Barbell Squat simply because it’s “too difficult” or perhaps they do not know the right way to train. So here are a handful of strategies to allow you to perfect the Barbell Squat and draw out its incredible mass building powers in order to pack on some serious new muscle mass…

Build More Mass With High Rep Squats

Ignore the powerlifter approach to going ultra heavy in your squats if mass building is your objective.  For size you need volume so keep your reps at the higher end.  Old school mass monsters used to do as many as 20 rep squat sets with a few maniacs doing as many as 100 reps (but that’s a whole different article).  For you, strive for 3 to 5 sets of 12-15 reps for your mass building training. You’ll most likely need to start with a lighter weight than you’ve been using, but you’ll make it easier on your back while unleashing a higher level of muscle-building hormones.

Negatives Build More Muscle

Lots of bodybuilders aren’t aware that the phase of the Barbell Squat in which you’re lowering the body down is actually the most effective stage in your repetition. Known as the “negative” phase, this stimulates more muscle fibers than the “concentric” phase, when you’re lifting the body up. In order to be sure you take full advantage of muscle fiber activation, lower yourself gradually (count to 4) on your way down and more rapidly (count to two) on your way up.

Go Low Or Go Home

Due to the fact so many people attempt to “squat heavy”, they usually don’t drop far enough within their range of movement to effectively target their legs. The very bottom part of the movements (where your upper legs are parallel to the ground) is known as the “stretch overload” position and also exactly where your muscle mass fibers are in maximum stimulation. If you can’t lower yourself to the point where your upper legs are parallel and you feel a stretch in your quads, then you’re either using too much weight or you’re just whussing out.  Reduce the load you’re lifting and go all the way down to truly jack up your mass building.

Advanced Mass Building Approach

These strategies only scratch the surface of what you need to know in order to build massive amounts of muscle.

Bodybuilding Supplement Scams You Should Know!

by Jeff Anderson

Ever wonder why that “miracle muscle builder” supplement that hoovered up last week’s paycheck didn’t perform as well as it did for the shredded dude in the magazine ad?

  • Were you just not working hard enough in the gym?
  • Are you just too much of a “hardgainer”?
  • Did you not click your heels 3 times?

That’s what some of the big supplement companies would like you to believe.  When in fact, it’s not YOU at all!

A recent review of the slick marketing tactics used by greedy bodybuilding supplement companies revealed some pretty scary tricks that you may have fallen for in the past.  Here are the Top 3 findings (and how you can be sure to NEVER get scammed again!):

Bodybuilding Supplement Scam #1:
“Proprietary Blends”

If the ingredient label on a supplement says “patent-pending” or “proprietary blend”, don’t buy it!  That’s scam-talk for “cheap worthless supplements we don’t want to tell you about!”  Companies can combine any simple compounds (whether they work or not) and submit them for a patent.  Sounds “official”…but it’s a smoke screen!

Bodybuilding Supplement Scam #2:
“Pixie Dust”

Most supplements list “proven” active ingredients on their labels that CAN help you build more muscle and burn fat.

Unfortunately, most of them contain so LITTLE of the actual ingredient that they will literally have NO EFFECT on your body unless you take expensive MEGA-DOSES!  Usually the language that’s used is something like, “…contains an ingredient proven to blah, blah, blah…”  “Contains” = “Sucker”  Don’t be one.

Bodybuilding Supplement Scam #3:
Scientific Jargon

We’re conditioned to accept medicines as having a powerful effect on our body.  That’s why supplement companies will use the latin or scientific name for a compound on the ingredients label to jack up the price for something that costs just pennies to produce.

In fact, I found one expensive “advanced” supplement that was using the long scientific name for plain old creatine…and charging a small fortune for it.  In another testosterone-boosting supplement, the manufacturers used the scientific name for (get this…) black tea leaves!  The bottle cost nearly $60 and it was filled with nothing more than ground up black tea leaves with its Latin name!

Makes You Want To Give Up On
Bodybuilding Supplements, Doesn’t It?

Don’t!

Of course you need to have a kickass training program to stimulate muscle growth.  And you know you need to feed that muscle to make it grow, right?  Well the fact is, there ARE some great supplements that can show you faster results in the mirror!

The secret is to know…

  • Which ones actually WORK
  • How much DOSAGE actually works
  • And how to buy them WITHOUT going broke!

I know that sounds like a big challenge, right?  Well it’s not…IF you have a  “how-to” guide that actually shows you how to make your OWN supplements (without any special skills or equipment).  That’s exactly what I do at MakeYourOwnSupplements.com.

In fact, you’ll save as much as 98% by making your own supplements and you’ll know that your own formulas actually WORK!  That’s because there are 29 ready-to-make recipes that you can use for ANY fitness goal starting right away.

Imagine making your own:

  • Muscle-Builders
  • FatBurners
  • Hormone-Enhancers
  • Testosterone Boosters
  • Workout Formulas
  • Mass Gainers

You’ll Save A TON Of Money
On Your Bodybuilding Supplements
And Get FASTER Results!

It really is that simple and you’ll be thrilled when you see just how easy it can be with a step-by-step blueprint in you hands to walk you through creating your own formulas.  You’ll never be a slave to the greedy supplement companies again!

Lower Back Pain and Golf

Dr. Robert Duvall, DPT, ATC, MGFI

Low back pain represents one of the most common and costly diagnoses that the health profession manages on a continuous basis. It is one of the most common reasons to visit a physician, physical therapist, or chiropractor. The costs for evaluating and treating low back pain patients are estimated to be beyond $50 billion dollars a year in the U.S. Regardless of the costs from the multiple diagnostic options, physical therapists and other healthcare practitioners must become more efficient and effective with their treatment plans. Treatment must be aimed at the individual with the back problem rather than the back problem itself. It is crucial for the clinician to include in their clinical assessments to examine the person and their ability to function, and not just focus on the traditional clinical tests of impairments such as range of motion and strength tests.

Traditional exercises have been shown to be an effective treatment modality for patients with low back injury. Multiple studies have examined the benefits of exercise in treating patients with low back pain; however, there have been very few published reports describing specific program designs as it relates to golfers. Golf injuries to the low back are the most common problems in both the professional and amateur player. It's poor technique and the repetition of hitting balls that usually leads to an injury. Combine that with the typical sedentary lifestyle (in which people drive to/from work in a seated position and work in a seated position for most of the day) and you begin to understand why there is such a high incidence of back pain among golfers.

A back injury results from excessive stress placed on the spine, usually when the body does not perform the correct sequence during the golf swing. Here is an astonishing fact: Eight times your body weight is forced through your spine as you make contact with the ball. So if you have poor mechanics combined with a weak back you are more likely to cause yourself a significant amount of injury.

To avoid back pain, I recommend you start by visiting a health professional for a golf-specific training program. A well-trained health professional is able to identify skeletal and muscle imbalances and give you correct golf specific exercises to improve your posture and overall conditioning specific for golf. Correct posture and muscle balance will enable you to get into the proper positions required to swing the golf club effectively.

The golf swing is considered a very unnatural movement for most people, especially for people with a sedentary lifestyle. As with most sports, golf is a sport that requires a lot of rotary movement. When we sit for the most part of the day, certain muscles get used to that position and become “tight”, while other muscles get “stretched out”. This leads to significant muscle imbalances that then put unnecessary stress on the back. In all likelihood, their golf muscles have “shut down” due to sitting for long periods. Effectively, the muscles that absorb force and reduce load in a golf swing (that is, the lower and deep abdominals) are relatively weak and aren't able to work together. And if your hips and shoulders are tight, there is a greater chance of moving incorrectly.

The golfer's checklist to ensure a healthy back:

  1. » Visit a physical therapist or chiropractor well versed with golfers for a golf-specific physical assessment and conditioning program.
  2. » Take a lesson from a PGA professional about basic fundamentals and how the body should move during the golf swing. Hopefully the PGA instructor uses video to analyze your swing.
  3. » Practice golf specific drills that teach the correct movements in your swing, which will decrease the chances of injuring your back.
  4. » Ensure your clubs are fitted properly for you, e.g. are your clubs too short or long? Are the shafts too flexible or stiff?
  5. » Make sure you do a golf-specific warm-up routine prior to hitting balls or playing golf.

10 At-Home Fat Burning Workouts

By Craig Ballantyne
http://bit.ly/gRUwm0

If you want to get back in shape fast, then you need short, burst workouts that you can do at home - so you don't miss a workout on your busy schedule.

Fortunately, you can get great workouts even if you only have 15 minutes to exercise at home a few days per week.

That's the great news about short, burst workouts...a little bit of effort now has been proven by scientists to be just as effective - and even better - for fat loss and fitness results.

Here are just a few at-home workout ideas to get you started:

1. Use the first superset of your favorite Turbulence Training workout and do as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes. Why? Because the first superset always contains the most effective exercises.

2. "30 seconds on, 30 seconds off" doing kettlebell swings

3. Burpees

4. Kettlebell Exercises Paired With TRX Exercises (although this involves owning a LOT of equipment and having a lot of space)

5. TT Bodyweight Cardio Workouts (that don't require any equipment at all)

6. Intervals supersetted with ab exercises like planks or side planks (which are made harder by the high breathing rate)

7. Bodyweight Challenges - Like the Bodyweight Cardio 1000 (Challenge type workouts get you hooked on exercise and prevent you from skipping workouts)

8. DB-BW Fusion Workouts - Pair a dumbbell exercise and bodyweight exercise together in a superset and go back and forth as many times as possible in 10 minutes.

9. Hybrid Triset Workouts - 3 exercises performed in a tri-set, using one dumbbell exercise, one bodyweight exercise, and one kettlebell or stability ball exercise. Requires just a little equipment, but work great!

10. Adrenaline Circuits - Combining bodyweight exercises and short, burst adrenaline style interval training methods. (Adrenaline intervals are covered in the 31 Interval Workouts manual.)

What Causes Belly Fat (And What To Do About It)

by Jeff Anderson

What causes belly fat often depends on a variety of factors including a person’s diet, level of activity, body type, genetics, and hormonal balance.  Belly fat, or abdominal obesity, is more than a cosmetic challenge; it can seriously challenge your health as well.  This is often the reason that people target it and work hard to get rid of it.

Regardless of what causes belly fat, it’s a pretty good clue that you may have increased inflammation throughout the body.  This can create problems anywhere in your body, not just for your belly.  Fat in the abdominal area is additionally a concern for individuals who may develop high blood pressure as well as an increased risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease due to excess belly fat.

What Kind of Belly Fat Do You Have?

There are actually different kinds of fat on the human body.  Intramuscular fat is what runs throughout your muscle tissue.  It is a lot like the marbling in a steak.  Then we have subcutaneous fat.  This is the belly fat that lies directly beneath you skin and is the kind of fat that people think they’re working hard to get rid of.  Next, we have the visceral fat.  This fat is the dangerous kind that’s both in and around your organs and behind the muscular wall.  When looking at what causes belly fat, we find that it’s mostly visceral fat.

Weight Loss Tips To Get Rid of Belly Fat:

Many people hit the gym in order to get enough exercise to get rid of belly fat once and for all, but what they don’t realize is that they’re mainly targeting the subcutaneous fat, not the visceral fat.  Visceral fat, that hidden cause of belly fat, is best fought with your diet.

From a diet perspective, belly fat is usually caused by eating too may carbs.  Therefore, you have to cut back and limit the number of carbohydrates you consume.  Believe it or not, you don’t have to be very drastic with your carbohydrate limits.  Most people that want to fight visceral fat should keep their carbohydrate consumption below 200 grams a day.

You have to pay attention to the type of carbohydrates you consume.  If you consume high glycemic carbs, those from high sugar or processed foods, your insulin levels will spike, resulting in belly fat.  You should eat foods with low glycemic carbs or complex carbohydrates.  Stick with fresh vegetables, whole grains, whole grain bread and whole grain rice.  Low glycemic carbohydrates are released slowly into your bloodstream without causing your insulin levels to spike.

Belly Fat Tip To Get Rid Of Your Gut

One great tip that has worked extremely well for many of my clients that are trying to get rid of excess belly fat is timing when carbohydrates are consumed.  It’s best to eat high carbohydrate foods early in the day because this is when your metabolism is the highest.  As the day progresses, your metabolism begins to slow down.  During the late afternoon and evening your metabolism has slowed to a point of not efficiently burning excess carbohydrates.  Carbs that aren’t burned are stored as belly fat.  As you can see, it makes perfect sense to reduce your carbohydrate consumption in the evening.

This one tip will help you eliminate one of the biggest obstacles of losing your belly fat.  But if you’re serious about discovering the secret for how to lose weight fast, then you’ll find some more advanced fat-burning tips at CombatTheFat.com as well as a complete fat-burning program that covers everything from diet to exercise and even how to balance hormones that are holding you back from losing!

Degenerative Disc Disease

What is it?

Degenerative disc disease is not actually a disease at all. It's a term that describes the natural changes the spinal discs undergo as a person ages. Degenerative disc disease usually occurs in the lower back and the neck, though it can take place anywhere along the spine. As a disc degenerates, it may put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, which often leads to pain and may affect nerve function. While everyone will experience these changes in their discs, most people will not have pain.

What causes it?

Spinal discs break down with age, resulting in a loss of fluid that can prevent discs from acting as natural shock absorbers. This fluid loss makes discs thinner and shrinks the gap between the vertebrae. Muscle imbalances - essentially, one set of muscles overpowering another - create "postural dysfunctions" that put abnormal pressure on a disc and cause increased wear and tear over time. Eventually, the weak spot gives way and makes contact with the nerve, bringing pain. Barring trauma, degenerative disc disease does not happen overnight. It takes a long time for a nerve to be put under enough pressure to cause pain.

What are the symptoms?

The most common symptoms are back or neck pain. Many people have no pain, while others with the same degree of disc damage have severe pain that limits their activities. An affected disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while one in the lower back may bring pain to the back, buttocks, or leg. The pain often gets worse when you bend, reach, or twist. In some cases, there may be numbness or tingling in your leg or arm. Loss of bowel or bladder control is deemed a medical emergency, so you should get to the emergency room as quickly as possible if either of these things happens to you.

How is it diagnosed?

Degenerative disc disease is diagnosed with a medical history and physical examination. During the exam, your doctor should check for range of motion and pain associated with the affected area, as well as any tenderness, numbness, tingling, or weakness. Your doctor should also ask about underlying conditions, such as fractures, tumors, and infection. If this examination shows no signs of a serious condition, imaging tests - such as an X-ray - are probably unnecessary.

How is it treated?

Common treatments include cortisone injections, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), hot packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic exercises. Surgery is also an option, with the two main goals being to take pressure off the nerve and stabilize the joints.

Why do traditional treatments fail?

Most traditional treatments fail because they simply address the symptoms and do not address the cause of the condition. Your degenerated disc is a physical problem, and it requires a physical solution. There are no pills or injections that can create postural balance in your body, which is what is necessary to reduce the pressure on the nerve.

Which treatments work best?

The principles of Muscle Balance Therapy™ address both the pain of a degenerative disc and the root of the problem - in other words, what's causing the pressure in the first place. Through strategic body assessments, your individual muscle imbalances can be identified. Once that is done, a very targeted corrective program can be designed for your specific needs.

To learn more about how you can get lasting relief from your Back Pain by using Muscle Balance Therapy™, we suggest you read the latest copy of our Back Pain Relief Guide.

How To Master Nutrient Timing For Faster Muscle Growth!

by Jeff Anderson in Hardgainer Bodybuilding, Mass Building, Nutrition

It’s true that the grueling workout you’ve invested at the local “iron jungle” will stimulate your muscles to grow bigger and stronger. But ultimately it’s your diet that will provide the “building blocks” for this new growth.

However, there’s more to a bodybuilder’s diet than mountains of canned tuna and protein powder. Timing your meals just right will provide you with a competitive edge that will allow you to build muscle faster and help burn those extra layers of fat covering up your hard work.

Here’s how…

Early Morning

When you wake up, you’re at the end of a 7-9 hour fast and your muscles are screaming for nutrition. Start off with a potent protein drink for fast absorption mixed with some complex carbs for fueling your day.

(For my “top secret recipe” of the world’s best mass building breakfast, check out my “top tip” at the end of this article!)

1-2 Hours Before Your Workout

You’re about to send your muscles into the “combat zone” so shouldn’t you provide them with the ammunition they need to “take the hill”?

Load up on some complex carbs that will provide the long lasting fuel you’ll need to power through your intense workout. Add a full dose of protein to provide a ready source of amino acids and give your muscles a head start on the growth process as you stress the muscle cells during your workout.

Immediately After Your Workout

You’ve used up the glycogen (stored carbohydrates) in your muscle cells as fuel for your workout and if you don’t replenish them fast, you’re bound to short circuit your growth.

Within 45 minutes to an hour after your workout you need to down a high-glycemic, high protein drink while your body is primed for fast absorption. Take in between 75 – 100 grams of sugar and about 25% of your day’s total protein requirement along with a healthy dose of monounsaturated fats to help stimulate testosterone production.

This is actually a key time to really pack on mass so don’t be afraid to get a little crazy here! In my “Optimum Anabolics” program (http://optimum.rxsportz.com), I actually include a potent post-workout regimen of around 200 grams of high glycemic carbs and 20-30 grams of health fats to kickstart a mass-building hormone release. It works!

Before Bed

You’re about to enter another long period of fasting at bedtime, but it’s also a prime time for your body to repair and build muscle. The problem is that your metabolism slows way down when you sleep so a large meal before turning in has the potential to trigger fat storage.

To provide the building blocks your body needs for growth while minimizing fat storage, eat a light meal consisting of slow-digesting protein and some easily digestible carbs. A bowl of cottage cheese with some fruit is ideal or mix a scoop of protein powder (one with casein in it is best) into some milk or water. Be sure to avoid high carbs and fat calories at this time.

* * * TOP DIET TIP * * *

Ok, it’s time for my promised “Top Secret” Pre-Workout Power Potion Recipe that will give you everything you need to turbo-charge your workouts while providing a ready source of amino acids to avoid muscle loss and begin the growth process.

Follow the directions below and consume this mixture about 1-2 hours before your workout …

The “Muscle Nerd’s” Top Secret Pre-Workout Power Potion

Ingredient 1: 1.5 cups Skim Milk

Milk is probably one of the most overlooked supplements there is! It’s loaded with both fast-digesting (whey) and slow-digesting (casein) proteins for a steady supply of amino acids…and it’s been proven in research to be a powerful growth hormone releaser!

Ingredient 2: ½ Frozen “Slightly Green” Banana

Ripe bananas have more sugar content than bananas that are still slightly green and will result in more of a quick “sugar rush” instead of supplying long term energy to power through your workout. Grab a bunch of “slightly green” bananas at your local supermarket, peel them all, and place them in a plastic bag in your freezer to break up and add to your protein blender drinks as desired.

Ingredient 3: 2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter

“Natural” peanut butter ( NOT the commercial hydrogenated garbage!) is loaded with mono-unsaturated fats…perfect for helping you raise your body’s testosterone levels for increased muscle mass and rapid fat burning. Look for a product that ONLY lists ” Peanuts ” and ” Salt ” on the list of ingredients.

Ingredient 4: ½ Cup Raw Oat Bran or Uncooked Oatmeal

Raw oat bran, like oatmeal, is a complex carbohydrate that is ideal for supplying tons of sustained energy for your workouts… AND the rest of the day.

Its finer texture makes is a better option for blender drinks, but if you only have access to oatmeal, make sure you put the dry oatmeal alone in the blender first and give it a few seconds on “high” to break it up a bit more.

Ingredient 5: ½ Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein

In addition to the casein protein from the milk, whey protein will provide you with additional, ready-to-deliver amino acids that will provide your muscles with a “jump start” on the recovery process.

Vanilla flavored powder seems to go best with this drink but chocolate flavored is another great option!

Directions: Ok…this is pretty self-explanatory, but here goes…

Add the first 4 ingredients in the order listed and blend on “High” for about 15 seconds. While it’s still blending, open the top and add the protein powder . Blend for another 5 seconds…stop… drink…wipe the “smoothie mustache” off your face…and enjoy your workout!

5 "ADVANCED" mass building secrets

Remember when you FIRST started "lifting" and you could practically watch the muscle grow as you stared into your bathroom mirror?

Ahhhhhh...those were the days, eh?

But like most people, those gains slowed down after a while and probably came to a CRASHING HALT at some point, right?

And of course, the bodybuilding magazines told you to "work harder" as they gave you a "plateau buster" workout that only REALLY works for "steroid-juiced" pro's!

It may have worked a tiny bit, but then you were right back where you started again.

A "sneaky supplement trick" to save up to 98%

Tired of paying stupid prices for supplements?

Let me share some advice on how I fit supplements into my budget on the cheap and actually get BETTER results...

=====================================

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

=====================================

First, realize that if you're serious about seeing results from your training, supplements are going to be a monthly expenditure just like your car payment or phone bill.

Every guy I know that's making steady muscle progress takes supplements...PERIOD!

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.

This will actually SAVE you money because you'll be less likely to get sucked into that miracle mass-builder supplement you saw in the magazine when you realize that it would bust your budget. (Hint: It was probably a crap supplement anyway!)

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

By staying within a certain spending limit, you’re forced to REALLY make rational, educated decisions about your supplement choices.

=====================================

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.

All over the internet, you'll see bodybuilding forums with members discussing how they created their own supplements by mixing the individual ingredients by themselves, copying the "recipe" from their favorite brand.

These guys have the right idea but 99% of them have no clue what they're doing.

There's actually a website though that DID get it right and developed a whole bunch (like 27 or so) "do-it-yourself" recipes you can make.

Some of these recipes are actually 98% cheaper than the name brand supplements you may have purchased in the past.

You can go and check them out at:

==> http://bit.ly/iedUog

There's also a video available and a free supplement recipe you can download to see how easy it is, as well as the full program if you're serious and want to take it to the next level.

Bottom line, once you discover how easy it is to make your own supplements and get started, you'll be hooked...and you won’t have to go broke in your quest for more muscle and less fat!

How to lose your most STUBBORN fat

Over the past few weeks you've probably heard A LOT about my good friend and fat loss "guru" John Romaniello's brand new fat-busting program, Final Phase Fat Loss.

Well, I've got some great news for you -- as of today, March 15th, the Final Phase Fat Loss exclusive 52% OFF pre-sale is OPEN, and YOU are invited via this special link:

http://bit.ly/aL7gKT <------- Your exclusive 52% off invitation

Several IMPORTANT things to be aware of:

1. This program is NOT for everybody:

Truth is, if you're a total beginner, this is probably not the best workout to start off with. These workouts are HARD (but brutally effective -- in fact, FPFL is the exact training regimen that John uses to get his clients down to SINGLE DIGIT body fat).

So, if you haven't been exercising for a long while, Final Phase Fat Loss probably isn't for you.

But this program definitely IS for you if you fall into one of these 3 categories:

**You're struggling to lose the last 10-15 lbs of stubborn fat (if this is you, you simply won't find a better program to achieve this goal, period)

**You've lost "some" weight, but have hit a plateau (this is THE program to "revive" your fat loss)

**You suffer from regional "problem area" fat storage located on your

a) butt/hips/thighs (women) or if you're a guy, the dreaded "man boobs",
b) love handles, or
c) stomach/belly

FPFL includes workouts to specifically target all three of these problem areas through strategic hormonal manipulation

2. VERY IMPORTANT (TODAY ONLY) - In addition to getting a whopping 52% OFF, anyone who order on Day 1 (that's today) is going to get HUGE fast-action bonus:

The Bonus - You see, later this year our other good friend and nutrition author Joel Marion is releasing a brand new diet product called The Big Breakfast Diet, but check this out...

For any and EVERYONE who orders FPFL 2.0 on Day 1, you're going get the "Beta" version of the The Big Breakfast Diet months before the program even releases...

...100% FREE as a fast-action bonus!

That's TWO killer fat loss programs for the price of...ONE HALF.

But the Big Breakfast Diet bonus is only for those who act quickly and pick up their copy today:

http://bit.ly/aL7gKT <------- 52% off the Big Breakfast Diet F.REE (today only)

And at 52% OFF, it's less than the cost of a single personal training session:

5 Proven Nutrition SWITCHES for Faster Fat Loss

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
http://bit.ly/aE7vCc

Every day in March, I've committed to sharing a Training and Nutrition "SWITCH" to help you lose fat. Here are 5 of the most popular nutrition switches I've posted so far:

Nutrition SWITCH #1 - No More Dessert for Breakfast

If you want to lose fat, stop eating dessert for breakfast.

Let's be honest, most of what people eat for breakfast would qualify as dessert if served at any other time of day. So stop with sugary cereals, muffins (let's be honest, we all know that muffins = cake), granola bars, and bagels.

Nutrition SWITCH #2 - Switch Your Eating Schedule

If you find that you often "binge snack" at night, try having a bigger late afternoon healthy snack, and then having a later healthy dinner.

There's no magic to not eating after a certain time. I often eat a big healthy dinner and go to sleep within 30 minutes. That won't make you fat. Eating a pint of ice cream & bag of chips every night while you watch TV makes you fat.

Nutrition SWITCH #3 - Minimize the Junk

Your house doesn't need to be stocked like the local 7-11. Keep the minimum amount of treats at home to avoid mutiny and keep treats out of sight & hard to access.

Make healthy foods (giant bowls of fresh fruit) visible and places encouraging notes to eat the fruit in the kitchen.

Put ready-to-eat produce in most visible part of the fridge & hide junk in the back. All research proven to increase healthy food consumption. And when it's your time for a
cheat meal, you can enjoy it guilt-free.

Nutrition SWITCH #4 - Go From Processed to Natural

When possible, switch out all processed or "modified" carbohydrates and replace it with a fruit, vegetable, or nut.

For example, instead of toast with eggs, have an apple and add spinach to the eggs. Instead of a processed carbohydrate with your morning coffee, have 1oz of raw nuts (almonds or walnuts). With steak, eat broccoli, not mashed potatoes or French fries.

Nutrition SWITCH #5 - Cut the Sugar From Your Post-Workout Drink

If you're focused specifically on fat loss, you do NOT need to add sugar (or any variations of sugar) to your after training drink.

I interviewed top nutritionists about this in 2010, and they all agreed that for fat loss, you don't need to force post-workout sugar into your body. So take it out.

BONUS Nutrition SWITCH - Become Your Own Nutrition Expert

Stop getting fooled by fad diets. Become an expert yourself by going through a 2-week "intensive nutrition course".

Here's how:

Eat a wide variety of food for 2 weeks and record all of your meals. You'll quickly know the calorie counts of all foods and proper serving sizes AND most importantly, what
works for YOU. Very simple. Very effective.

Research proven tips to help you eat better.

Back Pain? Sciatica? Grab This Free Book Right Now

I don't know if you saw it, but a few days ago, I notified you about a great new book called "The 7-Day Back Pain Cure"...

Well, it was written by a good friend of mine, Jesse Cannone. Jesse is recognized as one of the leading back pain relief experts in the world and right now he is giving away FREE copies of this new book.

It's not an eBook or anything like that... it's a real book and it's for sale on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble, but don't go buy it because if you go to his website right now you can get a free copy. You just pay a small shipping fee...

But it gets even better... a portion of your shipping fee is donated to one of two great charities: Habitat for Humanity or Kiva.org - you choose.

Click here to grab a FREE copy

Not only is the book fabulous, but he's done such a great job in taking complicated issues like back pain and the many things that cause it, and he's broken it down into an easy to read and understand book.

I found it very eye-opening and I have already made many changes to my daily routine from how I sit, to what I eat (or don't eat), to how I exercise and more... and I don't have back pain! But I DO want to prevent it.

Plus, what I like most about the book are the "7-Day Action Plans" that he has at the end of the book... so based on your situation or condition, you choose the action plan that's best for you... then all you have to do is follow the steps. For example, if you have a herniated or bulging disc, then use that action plan.... Neck pain? page 172... Sciatica? page 178

So, if you suffer from any type of back pain, I highly recommend you go grab yourself a free copy of his book now... and if you get to his website and they are out of free copies, I'd go buy it on Amazon... it's that good!

I'm sure you'll find it as helpful as I have, especially if you are in pain now.

Best,

Arthur M.

P.S. If you don't have back or neck pain, but you know someone who does, please be sure to forward this to them... I'm sure they'll thank you greatly.

The Ugly Truth About Back Pain

Please find below a special message from my good friend Jesse Cannone, co-founder of The Healthy Back Institute.  He has some important information to share with you.

Thank you,
Arthur M.

====

The Ugly Truth About Back Pain

Here’s a little-known fact.  The real cause of the pain is almost always overlooked.   clip_image001Most doctors only treat the symptoms. They use “band-aid” treatments like: 

  • Cortisone shots
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
  • Chiropractic manipulation

These may work. When they do, it’s almost never long-term.

It’s not until you treat the “hidden” underlying causes that you get lasting pain relief. Back pain is almost always caused by muscle imbalances which are a result of hip-dysfunctions.

What are “hip-dysfunctions”? In short, they’re the combination of tight and loose muscles in your upper legs, buttocks and hips that pull your pelvis and spine out of their natural alignment over the years.

This makes your back muscles work against the grain so they get hurt … it puts pressure on your spine, discs and nerves and causes all kinds of back, neck, sciatic related pain.

The good news is, it’s VERY FIXABLE – without expensive and never-ending trips to a chiropractor, without dangerous prescription drugs and without surgery. Fixing the imbalances causing these dysfunctions returns your body to the natural, balance structure it was when you were young and didn’t have back-pain

Medical doctors and Chiropractors are finally catching on and using this method as a treatment with their back pain patients. The results are nothing short of impressive. Jerry Talisman of Carlsbad California claims: "50 Years of Chronic Back Pain and Sciatica Gone in Just Days!" And tens of thousands of others are reporting similar success using this "formula"...

In my new book “The 7 Day Back Pain Cure” I do what no one else in the medical community does, and that is put together all of the pieces... see, most people when they have back pain usually get treatments that only mask the pain... and even then, the treatments only address the physical symptoms...

In my new book, I show you:

· Why traditional treatments always FAIL to deliver lasting relief

· The 7 mistakes that most people make that keep them in pain

· How to identify the real, underlying causes of your pain

· Which treatments work, which ones don't and how to know which is right for you

Now Here’s the best part. Right now I am actually giving my new book away for free... you can also buy it on amazon or Barnes & Noble, but if you grab one of the free copies from our website, I am going to donate $2 of the tiny shipping fee to Habitat for Humanity or Kiva.org - you even get to choose the charity!

So, if you suffer from any type of back pain, I highly recommend you go grab yourself a free copy of my book now... and if you get to our website and we are out of free copies, you should go buy it on Amazon... it's that good!

I'm sure you'll find it helpful, especially if you are in pain now.

How To Unleash An EARTHQUAKE In Your Muscle Fibers!

by Jeff Anderson

When an earthquake unleashes its fury, there’s also a series of “aftershocks” that roar through an affected area and can hit within a few hours…or even DAYS later!

When it comes to building muscle, you can use a similar “aftershock” technique that will not only increase muscle fiber activation…

…but GREATLY increase your mass-building capacity!

I’m currently in a “mass building” cycle and this technique comes straight out of my “Advanced Mass Building” program (though you’ve probably never heard it explained this way before).

Here’s how it works:

First, you’re going to be supersetting two exercises (performed back-to-back), both targeting the SAME muscle group. For this example, we’re going to use everyone’s favorite…the CHEST!

Your first exercise is going to be an isolation exercise that uses a “super stretch” movement. An example of this would be incline dumbbell flyes where, at the bottom position, your arms are below the body and you can feel a “stretch” in the targeted area.

Your second exercise is going to be a compound “power mover” where you can push a lot of weight. For this example, we’re going to work the incline barbell bench press.

By first performing your isolation exercise and getting a deep stretch at the bottom of the movement, your muscle fibers get extremely elongated. Your body, as it’s programmed to do, senses this extreme stretch position as a potential “crisis” and triggers what’s known as a “myotatic reflex” – a hyperstimulation of the central nervous system to ward off injury by calling in more muscle fibers around the targeted area to help out.

(Note: I’m not talking about “ultra-stretching” the muscle to the point of injury. Just lower the dumbbells in a controlled fashion until you feel a deep – but safe – stretch in your pecs, then raise the weight to the top position)

This initial hyper-stimulation of your muscle fibers is the perfect setup for your next exercise that uses the “aftershock” of the myotatic reflex to activate even more muscle fibers. Compound exercises like the incline bench press are ideal for this type of training because your first set isolated your targeted muscle group first and now you can get help from your other supporting muscles (like your shoulders and triceps) to push more weight and hit your Type II muscle fibers even HARDER!

Not to be confused with simple “pre-exhaust” training, this myotatic reflex training looks deceptively similar and simple…but the effects are felt deep in the epicenter of your muscles where real growth begins!

5 Essential Steps To Building Muscle Mass

By Adi Crnalic, ISSA C.P.T
Natural Bodybuilding Champion & Top Fitness Author
http://bit.ly/f5IIt7

If you’re looking to put on some serious muscle mass and strength, you’ll have follow a solid training and nutrition program. Adopt the 5 steps in this article and you’ll be on your way to building impressive muscle size in no time at all.

Step #1: Follow The Right Diet

A proper muscle building diet is crucial in achieving your mass and strength goals. Without a solid diet you’ll hardly make any progress in the gym and your muscle growth will be non-existent.

When you’re looking to put on serious muscle size make sure that you’re consuming at least 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight each and every single day.

Your carbohydrate consumption should be at least 2 to 4 grams per pound of bodyweight and your fat intake needs to be at least 0.5 grams per pound of bodyweight every day.

Focus on consuming high protein foods such as lean beef, salmon, eggs, chicken, shrimp, veal and other lean meats.

Your carbohydrates should come mostly from complex carbohydrates such as oatmeal, whole-grain bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, sweet potatoes as well as fruits and vegetables.

Foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids are: Olive oil, salmon (with skin), almonds, natural peanut butter, avocadoes and most other ocean caught fish and seafood.

Be sure to drink plenty of water every single day as doing so will help your body absorb and digest all of the extra protein, carbohydrates and other nutrients that you’ll be consuming.

Step #2: Follow An Effective Training Program

The most essential component of any serious mass gaining program is heavy and intense weight training. If you wish to pack on massive muscle size then you need to lift some serious weights.

Keep your reps in the 8-12 range and do at least 2 sets (not including warm-up sets) for each bodypart.

Smaller muscle groups only need about 8-10 working sets and larger muscle groups need anywhere form 10 to 14 sets per workout.

The most important thing to remember is to keep your workouts short and intense and to not take a long break in-between sets.

Train each muscle group only once each week and work your entire body at every workout if you’re a relatively new trainee.

Step #3: Get Enough Rest And Sleep

Not getting enough sleep will not only cause you to feel tired and exhausted, but it will severely impact your muscle growth. Not getting enough sleep and rest when you’re trying to put on serious muscle mass is like trying to drive your car on an empty tank. It just won’t happen.

You’ll need plenty of rest and quality sleep in order for your muscles to repair and grow. You should get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep each night. Remember, your muscles don’t grow in the gym while you’re training but it’s when you’re sleeping that growth occurs.

Step #4: Utilize Cardio

Cardio exercise should be part of your routine because it will prevent you form putting on excessive amounts of body fat and keep your heart and blood vessels healthy.

When you’re in mass gain mode, you should limit your cardio to only the days that you’re not training with weights. Stick to low-intensity cardio such as jogging or riding a stationary bicycle at low intensity.

Step #5: Use Supplements Wisely

Dietary supplements are not essential when you’re attempting to put on muscle mass. However if you do decide to use supplements, go with the basics such as whey protein powder, EFA’s, a multivitamin and creatine.

A protein powder will help you get the required amount of protein that's needed for muscle growth and repair. EFA's or essential fatty acids also known as omega-3 fatty acids, will help lubricate and repair your joints as well as connective tissue and reduce muscle inflammation. Omega-3's will also help in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.

A daily multivitamin ensures that your body is not deficient of any necessary nutrients that get depleted during intense training and creatine will help with muscle endurance and strength which directly leads to more muscle growth.
