In this installment, Westside Barbell guru Dave Tate digs deep to answer the question, "Why do we put ourselves through this?"
12 Weeks to Astounding Abdominals
"The sheer effectiveness and brutality of the EDT program does not come across in the written word. This is a TOTAL gym experience"
If you don't already have Ian King's 'Get Buffed!' book, you've probably heard about it. It's definitely one of best-received books about weight training on the market.
Has anyone out there tried "The One-Day Arm Cure" by Charles Poliquin? Or am I the only nut who spent an entire day devoted to training arms?
Sit down with a bunch of bodybuilders and ask them to sum up all the important stuff they've learned and you'll probably hear some interesting info. But sit down with a bunch of experts in the field, guys with years of experience training themselves and working with others, and what you hear may change how you eat and train forever.

How to unleash your core strength to achieve explosive arm development

Whether your main goal is fat loss or unadulterated muscle gain, here’s what you need to do.
I've titled this article TNT (Tips-n-Tricks) for a very good reason. Many times it's the small things that make the biggest difference. Usually when reading a new book or article you walk away with one good idea. This one idea could've been presented in a paragraph or two.

Can you really change the shape of a muscle?
Think you have what it takes to make it in the world of elite sports? Do you have immense talent and ability? Great, but so do a few thousand other guys. Unfortunately, all of these things will only get you so far in this world where good isn't often good enough. At this level you have to be one of the best just to get your foot in the door.
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.
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.
