What's the quickest way to take your physique to the next level? Give up? Well, the answer depends on your calf insertion points. No, I'm not kidding!

Atomic Dog My speech to the graduates by TC The Atomic Dog is a weekly feature that isn't necessarily about weight training or bodybuilding. Sometimes it's about sports in general, sex, women, or male issues of some kind. At times it's inspirational, but it can also be informative, funny, and even a little weird, but hopefully, always interesting and a little controversial. We hope it reflects the nature of Testosterone magazine in that, just as no man is comp...

From Bonsai to Bamboo Biceps Exercises for the Genetically Challenged by TC This article originally appeared in issue #152. I’m genetically challenged. I guess that’s a nice way of saying that I have some gimp-like aspects. True, I’ve got my strengths. For instance, I scored an 800 on the verbal part of my SAT. I only scored a 2 on the math part, though. For some reason, I’m just not very good at that stuff. I mean, I can’t even ma...

Real People, Real Muscle by Chris Shugart We're sick of listening to pro-bodybuilders dole out advice on training and nutrition. You know why? Because their advice is horrible! Sure, you'd think guys that big and ripped would know what they were doing, but in most cases they look that way despite their training and dieting strategies. They start with exceptional genetics, then augment this with keg-sized portions of steroids and other drugs. They become so far rem...

Behind the Iron Curtain

The Soviets and other Eastern European countries knew more about training than anyone else in the world. They had closely guarded, top secret training methods devised in dark laboratories by evil geniuses bent on world domination.

What do T-mag assistant editor Chris Shugart and Jean Claude Van Damme have in common? Aside from wacky accents and constantly having to save their families from drug dealers and terrorists, both of them have, at one time or another, claimed to be able to crack walnuts with their respective butts.

Power Broker An Interview with Christian Thibaudeau by Chris Shugart T-mag listens to its readers. When we get a lot of feedback about a particular article or a contributor, we pay attention. After Christian Thibaudeau published a few articles with us, the message we received from readers was pretty clear: "We want to hear more from that guy!" Thibaudeau (pronounced Tee-Bow-Doh) is yet another French Canadian phenom in the strength and conditioning commun...

Exercises You've Never Tried, Volume 5 by Chris Shugart and TC One of the most common questions we get here at T-mag is "Can you send me naked pictures of Tim Patterson?" The answer is no. Sure, Tim runs around naked all the time, trains that way too (squat day is particularly frightening), but we don't take pictures and stuff. That would be weird. However, the second most common question is "What's the best exercise for this or that muscle group?" That we can ac...

Save Your Parents! by TC Luoma and Cy Willson Let's see if this situation sounds vaguely familiar. You're passionate about taking care of your body. You work out, you eat right, and you take supplements to fine tune the way your body looks, feels, and functions. If you piled up all the hours you've spent studying all this stuff, you'd think some University would just flat out give you a PhD. Yet, when you try to give your parents some advice about how they migh...

EDT: Lose The Fat, Keep The Strength
EDT: Lose The Fat, Keep The Strength
by Charles Staley Fri, Dec 06, 2002

One of the bummers associated with body-comp training is the concurrent loss of muscle, and therefore, strength. And while this outcome is partly dictated by physiology, it's also partly the fault of uninspired program design.

Atomic Dog Could I have those peas, could I have those yams, could I have some of that fancy damn ham? by TC   The following Thanksgiving article first appeared in T-mag in 1952 when the Internet was in its infancy. Back then, all you could really find on the Internet concerning weight lifting or bodybuilding was Testosterone and a "physical culture" site where Ben Weider posted pictures of young men in leopard loincloths. We've ru...

I'm a straightforward guy; I don't like to hide my intentions behind a lot of unnecessary words. People who do that are often trying to sound more intelligent than they are, or trying to hide the fact that they don't know what they're talking about!

STOP the Catabolic Insanity! by David J. Barr As kids, we all looked at superheroes with a sense of awe — not just for their heroic acts of fending off the bad guys, but also for their seemingly flawless muscular bodies. In fact, I know of more than one guy who started working out in order to emulate their favourite superhero. While most superheroes got their powers as a result of exposure to radiation, a genetic mutation, or coming from another planet,...
