The Steroid Interviews - Professional Baseball

As part of an agreement with Testosterone Magazine, excerpts from my new book will be published in the coming months. These excerpts detail the use of performance enhancing drugs by elite athletes as well as those in non-athletic populations. The book looks at these drugs individually in a scientific manner, something not done to date by popular books on the subject or those less read books published for members of the scientific community.

December Diet Strategies

Thanksgiving was a fatty, sugary good time. I've never been one to do the old "modified recipe" thing when it comes to traditional holidays. Mashed potatoes and gravy, eggnog, pumpkin pie – it's all good to me.

Nobody Move!

As I sit here in the airport reflecting on my recent trip, I'm once again exposed to the reality that most Americans just don't move. At least not under their own power. Mostly we just like to sit motionless.

The Creation Continues

About 2 years ago, we asked one of our resident nutrition and supplement gurus, John Berardi, to give us a peek into his training journal. While best known for dispersing dietary dogma, JB has built a rock-solid physique from countless hours of fraternizing with heavy dumbbells and barbells.

Ab Training From the Inside Out

Breathing isn't one of those things we normally think about. Being the morons that we are – according to the general public, at least – bodybuilders generally prefer to devote our limited brain power towards things which seem more pertinent, such as calculating food intake or figuring out which tank top will make our guns look the biggest (okay, maybe that one's just me).

High Steaks

It's the battle cry of any bodybuilder worth his salt, or should I say, protein. Or maybe his carbs. Anyhow, massive eating is one of our defining characteristics.
