It’s Not The Size; It’s What You Do With It

Back in my early 20's, I had a “eureka!” moment. I had been doing weight lifting routines to get bigger, but I was not really getting the results that I wanted. I knew that I had to eat a lot of protein and lift as heavy as I could… hmmm. One day, I was training my back (lats) on the lat pull down machine with more weight than I could lift correctly. I knew that this was supposed to target my lats but it was really hitting my shoulders. I had also been listening to many different people’s opinions on

How To Succeed With Diet, Fitness Or Lifestyle Change: Where To Start With Fat Loss

Home Workout For Beginners: Where to Start with Fat Loss? I have always taken a close interest in other people’s diet and fitness achievements. I truly admire the person who decides that “enough is enough” and transforms their body from extremely overweight to lean and flat or trim and toned. There are, no doubt, millions of people who are overweight and want to make this transformation for themselves. I have personally spoken to hundreds of people who want and have, indeed, tried to achieve this change; but I only know of a handful who have actually seen it through and earned the

Sleep And Health

Sleep Well For Better Health If we want our body to function efficiently, we need to give it the rest that it needs. Our body needs to have this rest, so it has the energy to perform all sorts of tasks -- from walking to digesting food. But with the busy lifestyles that we live, adequate rest can be a problem for some people. If you leave your workplace late at night and feel that you need to try to fit in your training program in the day's schedule, remember that you do not have to train every day. This will take

Are You New To Fitness But Don’t Know Where To Start?

Are you new to the fitness world and want to get into shape, but don't know where or HOW to start? I know, from experience, that if you are in the boat I just described above, or even confronting this dilemma right now, it is extremely confusing to know what to do when you consider all of the “Get Fit Fast!” “Lose Fat Fast!” and “Ultimate Results!” fitness programs on the market today. I have seen some fitness programs advertised that literally made my jaw drop by the outrageous claims and “Clever Marketing” strategies. Many of these fitness programs are advertised

Bodybuilding Plateau: How You Can Beat It

Have you reached a bodybuilding plateau? Every would-be bodybuilder has heard of the phrase, “hitting a plateau.” This is when your body reaches a point in its training and stops or slows down on development. A lot of people will disagree with this theory but I have experienced this first hand. Your body will hit this plateau usually after several months into a new bodybuilding routine. You train with the same intensity, the same amount of sessions per week and your diet is good but you stop or slow down on your development.   Why Is This? The issue is simple, really.

Pre-Exhaust Sets?

What are pre-exhaust sets? Pre-exhaust sets are exercise sets used to tire out the muscle that you wish to work on before you get into your heavy-lifting sets. This would normally be an isolation movement before a compound movement. If you are not familiar with compounds and isolation's, then let me give you a very simplified definition: A compound movement is a movement that uses more than one joint function, e.g. squat, bench press, military press, etc. Some would call these "strength-building" movements. An isolation movement, on the other hand, is an exercise that uses only one joint movement; such

Bodybuilding Foods: Tasty, Quick and Easy Paella

Bodybuilding foods don’t have to be boring! If you have read any of my other articles on this website, you will know that I love to eat tasty food and always try to make my bodybuilding foods as tasty as possible. Since childhood, I have always experimented in the kitchen; and my dad remains a big influence on my cooking style. In recent years, however, I have adopted my own cooking style. Most of the dishes that I cook now are mainly bodybuilding foods. I have a good understanding of bodybuilding nutrition and I know what should be left out

Building Muscle Mass

Building Muscle Mass If you are looking for an efficient way of building muscle mass, you should really be training regularly. I know that, to most people, this sounds glaringly obvious, but there are many different ideas out there. I am a fan of split training when it comes to bodybuilding. Split training is where you would typically be training each body part twice every week, but condensing your training into four sessions in that week. With this kind of split training, you will only be working out with weights four times per week, which means you will have three

Jim’s Meatloaf: Great Tasting Protein and Carbohydrates

Really Great Tasting! This is one of my favourites! This meatloaf goes with all kinds of meal plans. You can have it as a main meal or as a snack. I have used it as a bodybuilding meal but it can also be used as a healthy weight loss diet as well. Note that it is high in protein and carbs, so, if you plan to use it as part of your weight loss diet, it is a good idea to make sure that the portion size is within your planned calorie intake. It is very easy to go overboard and
