Etiquette School
by TC Fri, Mar 28, 2003

Atomic Dog Etiquette School 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...

Fun With Women!
by Christian Thibaudeau Fri, Mar 28, 2003

Fun With Women! My new pastime (and how women should train) by Christian Thibaudeau with Patricia Smith and Jennifer Blomquist I'm the kind of guy who enjoys a good laugh and a good time. Most T-mag readers might find that hard to believe because it seems that I spend so much time answering questions on my T-mag forum, working on articles and books, and training athletes that it doesn't s...

Exercises Never Tried, Vol. 7
by Chris Shugart and TC Fri, Mar 28, 2003

Exercises You've Never Tried, Volume 7 by Chris Shugart and TC Lifting weights is like sex. Parts of your body get hard and veiny. You make noises and dumb looking faces. You sweat. You shower afterwards. Mirrors and funny costumes may be involved. But like good nookie, training can get boring if you always do it the same way. Hence this article series. With these articles, you never have to be bored in the g...

Accidental Muscle?
Accidental Muscle?
by Robert "Fortress" Fortney Fri, Mar 28, 2003

Accidental Muscle? by Robert "Fortress" Fortney Where are all the Buff Guys? Almost every guy at the gym desires a more muscular physique. I mean, let's face it, the majority of females these days aren't into men with wussy builds. Sex makes the world go 'round. A cursory look at any of the popular bodybuilding magazines supports this fact, and I'm not talking about the "collector edition" pictorial...

Temporal Nutrition, Part 1 by Lonnie Lowery You know what you want and you're learning how to get it. As a bodybuilding enthusiast, you've cultivated a love of heroic muscle mass and (hopefully) muscular performance as well. But almost paradoxically, you've probably also come to dig extreme leanness. Indeed, the desire to unveil your hard-won musculature seems natural, even if it wasn't what caused...

Frequent and Furious How to get strong fast with frequent workouts! by C.S. Sloan "Whadda ya' think of this workout?" the kid using the bench next to mine asked. "Pretty cool, huh? Gotta go for the friggin' pump!" He then proceeded to grind out reps with perhaps the most God-awful form I've ever seen. I was surprised the kid was even asking me the question. He knew I wrote for bodybuilding magazines...

Triple Decker Delts by Don Alessi What would you give to have delts so big and wide that you had to strip naked and coat yourself with lard before being able to pass from room to room? Perhaps you're thinking, "Don, I'd sacrifice a certain very sensitive part of my reproductive system for great delts!" Well, don’t. You may need that fellow someday and besides, you can have strong, torqued-out ...

Fight Muscle An interview with Coach Scott Sonnon by Chris Shugart A lot can happen to a guy when he loses a fight. He can become discouraged, he can quit, or he can set out to improve himself. When martial arts competitor Scott Sonnon refused to tap out in his fight with a Russian Sambo champion, the Russian broke his arm. By refusing to submit, he saved Team USA two points. It cost him a broken bone but it taught him ...

The Best of the Guest Q and A with Coach Chad Waterbury compiled by the editors How would you like to be able to ask some of the world's top coaches and bodybuilding experts any question you wanted? Well, some of these guys charge hundreds of dollars for short phone or e-mail consultations, so you'd better have your checkbook ready.

Running Man Energy-system work to Get Lean and Mean by Christian Thibaudeau As most of you probably know, I'm not a big fan of slow-pace cardio work, especially when you're trying to build muscle mass or improve your performance. Sadly, my reluctance to include aerobic work in my programs has been misinterpreted. Many people believe I'm against any type of road work. This isn't so! I do believe that energy-system work (note how I don't use the term "...

Protein Prejudice
by John M Berardi Fri, Mar 07, 2003

The Protein Prejudice by John M Berardi I was in the lab the other day, playing researcher, when an aggressive and self-assured undergraduate student burst in through an unlocked door. "Excuse me. Is there anyone around that I can speak to about protein?" Apparently, since the sign outside our door reads "University of Western Ontario, Exercise Nutrition Laboratory," it's clear to everyone that there's an exercise and nutrition help desk inside that's dedicated...

Your Doctor, Your Dealer, Version 2.0 by Doug Kalman I was on a journey for greater knowledge regarding our friend "Mr. T." This journey took place on foot, in person, and online. It was also well worth it. Many of us who participate in the iron game do so for the greater glory of having a body better than Homer Simpson. At times, we take HOT-ROX for cutting up, or Surge in order to set the right hormonal milieu for muscular supremacy. Some people choose to use T...
