REST IS THE SECRET TO SUCCESS

REST IS THE SECRET TO SUCCESS

Even God rested on the seventh day. You need to rest too. Building any kind of muscular athletic body is hard work. The more performance you desire, generally the more brutal the work. You not only have to follow a very strict diet and make sure you get all your nutrients in the right combinations, but you also have to take your intensity in the gym up to a higher level than you did the last time you were in there. Some of you take it to a very extreme level and train like a crazed wild animals. Regardless of...

What Is The Best Strength Training Routine 3 Days A Week?

What Is The Best Strength Training Routine 3 Days A Week?

The best three-day workout routine is the one you're going to do three days a week. It's absolutely pointless to embark on a fitness program, with a well researched list of exercises for a three day workout routine, if you're not going to do it consistently, three days a week. I'm emphasizing “three” because it’s a screaming deal if you can get away with it. Devoting a three-day workout routine to a seven day week is a pretty paltry commitment, considering what you intend to accomplish. And that's really the issue. What is the purpose of this fitness program? If...

How Do You Get So Lean?

“If you stay ready you don't have to get ready” - Suga Free People always ask me how l get so lean? My answer is simple, l stay lean. If I stay lean I don' t have to get lean. Right?

Well, maybe for...

INTENSITY

INTENSITY

“Intensity” is one of those terms that's as subjective as it is ambiguous, if not just completely downright misconstrued. It is, however, the apex requirement in your list of things you're going to have to learn to generate if you intend on using your tine in the gym to  increase your strength/ performance.  Every athlete knows this.

30-Minute Workout Enough To Build Muscle?

30-Minute Workout Enough To Build Muscle?

Pondering whether or not a 30-minute workout is enough to build muscle is a bit like wondering if 30-minutes is enough to cook a meal. Sure, it could be. Depending on who you are. It could also be a disaster. Clearly, it's what you do with those 30-minutes that may or may not trigger muscle growth. Whether it be a good circuit workout, “popsugar” workouts, or whatever 30-minute fitness thing you can come up with, the reality is, that it's largely irrelevant. What is relevant – the only thing that's relevant. - is exercise intensity. And I'll tell you why.......

Is Creatine A Safe Supplement?

Is Creatine A Safe Supplement?

Creatine, more specifically, creatine monohydrate, is one of the most studied dietary supplements in history. Reams of peer reviewed and published research indicate numerous ergogenic benefits of creatine supplementation, as well as eating creatine rich foods (meat). Depending on how you cycle creatine, and how much creatine a day you take, the apparent gains in muscle mass have caused many a coach to wonder if creatine is a steroid. Well, right off the bat, creatine is not a steroid, or even a drug. It's a naturally occurring compound of three amino acids, (glycine, arginine, and methionine) that the body manufactures,...

Rich Gaspari's 2020 Arnold Predictions

Rich Gaspari's 2020 Arnold Predictions

I really don't like to make predictions about contest outcomes, particularly for contests as big and as important as the Arnold. In order to make such a prediction, I can only do it fairly if I can imagine everyone being at their best. You can't really do it any other way. I am, however, expected to give my Arnold predictions, in spite of what I might feel about making predictions about guys I haven't seen – and it wouldn't matter if I have seen them anyway, because the only time when it's gonna matter how they look is still weeks...
