Matt Phelps is hugely pissed about the term "failure" and what it really means. He thinks exercise physiologists have one idea while the guys in the trenches, i.e., the guys in the gym, have a different, more realistic idea.
Are you tired of seeing all those idiots in the gym doing everything wrong? Are you tired of the laziness, the stupidity, the lack of backbone, and the careless disregard for everything you hold dear? Move over, so's Jeff Ingram.
Scot Abel is a bodybuilding anarchist. He doesn't believe in tempo training, pre-determined rest intervals, back-off weeks, or the fact we have elves in the basement that make Metabolic Drive. What he does believe in is pretty cool, though.
We posed the following question to 7 coaches: "What one thing has made the biggest difference in your training when it comes to putting on muscle?" The answers varied enormously, but one of them might provide the clue you've been waiting for.
The healthiest stuff to eat can also be the tastiest stuff to eat. Check out these 6 meal ideas.
Combos consist of big-money lifts done in rapid succession. Do them right and you'll muscle up quick, along with building speed and power. Oh yeah, you'll also drop some blubber... assuming your heart doesn't explode.
Bodybuilding guru Scott Abel says that training for hypertrophy, size, thickness, density, and shape is not the same as strength training. If the question is how to gain unadulterated muscle mass, is hybrid training the answer?
The biker put him through a workout that was decidedly unscientific, but it taught Darren a lesson about lifting. Hope you've got some equipment in the room because you're going to want to hit the weights right after you read this.
We don't know what's better, the fact Biotest was finally recognized by the outside world for its quality, or that Tim Patterson agreed to a rare interview! We call it a coin toss.
If you understand your opponent, you can manipulate him and win the battle. Similarly, if you understand why weight lifting builds muscles, you can control those babies and make them do your bidding. Muscle Master Christian tells you how.
So you spend maybe 5 or 6 hours a week in the gym. How much of that time is spent snapping towels or playing the soap dish game in the locker room? If you plan just a little and cut out the wasted time, you might actually build a decent physique.

Screw that Spiderman sequel! We've got the only sequel that matters: the next installment of Dave Tate's "Eat my Meat." Oh, and you'll want to get a bench shirt after looking at one of the pictures in this article, guaranteed.
Dave doesn't waste words. In fact, when he met his wife, he just pointed to what he wanted. Same thing with his articles. No build up. No smooth talking. He just gets right to the point.
A little analysis is always good. But there's a point at which more won't make you stronger, and may lead to a lot of wasted gym time. Here's why.
The Atomic Dog's out in the nuclear doghouse. (He chewed up Tim Patterson's favorite workout shirt.) As such, TC wrote a plain ol' regular training article instead of his usual hallucinogenic-mushroom fueled rant.
Sure, this article is about a sometimes boring, often unsexy topic: injury prevention. But unlike most articles on the subject, this one contains plenty of info that'll help any lifter, regardless of whether his joints are bulletproof or not.
Can't lose fat? Can't figure out why? Well, can you answer simple "yes" or "no" questions? Of course you can! And that's all Dr. L's nifty little algorithm requires. You should have the answer to your fat-loss dilemma in no time and soon be well on your way to buffdom.
Coach Boyle's been dragging his calloused butt through the weighlifting business for 25 years. During that time he's made a few mistakes, but luckily for you whippersnappers, he wants to save you from making those same mistakes.
Between working 40-60 hours per week, carting the kids around, or being forced to take those swing dancing lessons you promised your girlfriend (we've all been there), the last thing on the "to do list" is going to the gym. Mr. G has the answer: the Two-Day Workout.
