Warming-Up to a Great Workout

A perfect warm-up virtually ensures a perfect workout, but a poor one will almost certainly ruin what COULD have been a great training experience. Ever wake up dreading the idea of going to the gym, but after getting there, you end up having a great workout? You can thank your warm-up for that.

Tsunami Training

I'm going to describe a little 6-week program that I call Tsunami Training (I'll get to why I call it that a little later). It's based, for the most part, on training methodologies that I picked up from Ian King and Charles Poliquin, with some razzle-dazzle thrown in by myself.

Antioxidants - Part 2

Antioxidant supplementation is one of the most confusing areas of nutrition. Hell, if you read the average daily newspaper, you're met with a deluge of information about the latest and greatest alleged antioxidants.

Testosterone Replacement

Testosterone replacement is an issue that concerns most men over the age of 35 or 40. Although these men may feel great, they know, deep down, that they feel differently than when they were in their twenties. Granted, a lot of it has to do with general wear and tear and a host of age-related declines, but some of it has to do with the steady decline in testosterone production.
