Of Batman and Superman
by TC Fri, Dec 28, 2001

Atomic Dog Of Batman and Superman by TC   I was never a big fan of Superman. I think it's largely because things came too easy for him. All Superman had to do to get his super powers was show up. Our yellow sun gave him immeasurable strength, invulnerability, the ability to fly, and X-ray vision. I was also never crazy about his costume, either, because red, full-bottom-coverage panties pulled over blue tights just isn't a goo...

Damage Control How to cheat on your diet without looking like you did. by John M. Berardi   "Oh come on, live a little!" "Don't you ever eat anything that's bad for you?" "I could never do what you guys do, I like food waaaayyyy to much for that!" Those quotes sound familiar, don't they? I know I've heard them hundreds of times. But don't take my word for it. Studies have shown that every 60 seconds, someone, somewh...

Atomic Dog Life of the Party by TC   A few days ago, after the rest of the T-mag staffers had gone home to dream of sugar plum fairies, Tim and I dragged our cedar chests out of the Biotest attic and sorted through all our festive holiday sweatshirts in anticipation of Christmas week and all the associated parties. Tim pulled his favorite on over his head. It was a pale blue number he had worn every Christmas since 1980 a...

Stuff We Like Consumer Reports for Bodybuilders by John Koenig and Chris Shugart   There are literally thousands of bodybuilding tools on the market today. These include exercise gadgets, athletic training devices, books, videos, and supplements. They run the gamut from complete garbage to products you shouldn't live without.

Good Fat and Where It's At by Dr. Lonnie Lowery   There are a lot of facts bombarding our gray matter nowadays. Pretty much everyone realizes that we live in an age of information overload. This certainly holds true with bodybuilding and nutrition. Yet with all the science and speculation, practical applications of the information are sometimes hard to come by. Take dietary fat, for example. You may read on one site how fish oils are importa...

The Next "Big Three" Program An abbreviated program for strength and overall development by Chad Waterbury   The Big Three: Old School Style Many of you are familiar with Bill Starr's total body program called "The Big Three," which was featured in his 1976 book, The Strongest Shall Survive.

Getting Schooled Westside Style by Doug Jackson   We've sent men on missions before. We sent Chris Shugart into the heart of one of the most notorious border towns in Mexico to hunt out 'roids. We sent former T-mag columnist Nelson Montana to go under the knife of a plastic surgeon. And we even sent Cy Willson to the bad side of town to pick up some tasty Calzones, but the mission we sent Doug Jackson on might have been potentially the most ...

Atomic Dog Generation T By TC   Whenever I go through our reader mail or cruise through the T-mag forum, I'm both amazed and pleasantly surprised to find that there's no such thing as a prototypical T-mag reader. The average visitor to the site isn't necessarily 29 years old with an income of $35,000 and 1.5 kids. Neither is he necessarily a high school graduate, a drop out, or a PhD. He — or even she — might be straight, mi...

Guest Atomic Dog Motivation is For the Comon Herd, Not the Alpha Male by Charles Staley   OK T-Dudes, they've allowed me to write a "Guest Dog" this week. As I considered how I might take maximum advantage of my 15 minutes of fame, I thought I'd see if I could create some real excitement about a topic that should receive a lot more attention from you hormone-soaked gym-rats: MOTIVATION.

I mean the kind of progress that forced you to walk by every mirror, or inspired a crowd of people to gather every time you trained? If you're like most weight trainers you haven't made those kinds of gains since similax was the hot supplement. What ...

Clean Livin' A T-man Guide to Health by TC   While our unofficial motto here at T-mag is "look good naked," we sometimes forget that it doesn't much matter how good you look, naked or otherwise, if you're as daid as the mullet that's packed on ice and sitting on the fishmonger's cart. Neither is it much good if you always feel crummy because you have bad chemicals gumming up the works, or so much sludge pumping through ...

Choose Your Weapon A Rundown of Biotest's Big 4 Anabolic Supplements by TC   If you're like the average T-mag reader and Biotest supplement user, you've probably noticed — at least subconsciously — that we now feature 4 supplements that were designed to be directly anabolic. And to further complicate things, each works by a different, or somewhat different, mechanism. After all, like the old adage says, there's more than ...

Atomic Dog The 1st Annual Soy Awards by TC   America loves award shows. The Oscars, the Emmys, the MTV Music Awards, and the VH-1 Fashion Awards always score high on the Nielsen ratings. There are so many award ceremonies now that before long, every man, woman, and child in the country will have been awarded one type of award or another. Even the porn industry has an awards ceremony. It's called the AVN awards, and they g...

Soy is Still Bad Protein by Glen Neilson   We first published an article about how soy protein is estrogenic, can lower Testosterone counts, and can even kill testicular cells in January of 2000. We then published new research on the matter in February of 2001. But you know something? The national media still won't touch the story. You can pick up the "Food" section of practically any local newspaper and see glowing reviews of t...

Why is it that common sense drops right through the porcelain fixture when lifters plan their grip training? If you're only going to perform a few barbell wrist curls at the end of a workout and expect vein-popping forearm muscles, you're sadly mistaken!
