Don't settle for being fat and strong. Here's why relative strength should be one of your goals.
There's a much better way to train the core and obliques. Take a look.
Attach a two-inch pipe to some webbing and a cable machine to really build your grip and forearms. The resistance increases as you roll.
Get a pipe and make this yourself. Unlike a standard wrist roller, the rack version doesn't overtax your shoulders, just your grip and forearms.
Strength athletes train their crushing grip strength, but often neglect pinch grip strength. Here are some new ways to train it.
This lift can be used as a tool to train for strength and mobility, along with overall health of your muscles and joints.
Fix your ugly squat by squatting. Here's how.
The wrist roller is a proven grip and forearm builder. Ramp up the time under tension by standing on a step. Shoot for 30-60 seconds of constant tension.
For wide delts, overload the top half of this exercise with bands. Or use dumbbells plus bands. Drop the bands upon failure to extend the set.
It's time to relax and use some common sense when it comes to carbohydrates. Here's a reality check.
Alternate between chin-ups and push-ups, doing twice as many push-ups. Example: Start with 10 chins and 20 push-ups. Goal: 30 chins, 60 push-ups total.
If you have trouble with proper form on dips, try this variation where you're forced to pull the toes up. It immediately fixes most form problems.
Using chains for dips is not only a good way to add weight, the chains will actually teach proper form on regular dips.
For this mechanical drop set, you go from the hardest to easiest movement to match your fatigue level: wide flyes, bent-arm flyes, push-ups.
This three-part mechanical drop will have your lats, upper back, and arms begging for mercy.
Getting stuck at the bottom of your bench press? Use this technique to build bottom-up strength.
Get stronger from the floor. This exercise combines deficit deadlifts (standing on a plate or platform) with farmers walk handles for a new stimulus.
Not every tough workout has to involve a barbell. Try this complex.
Complexes can be used for fat loss or strength gains. Try this one using heavy 3-rep sets for each exercise in the series. No rest between movements.
Need to drop some fat, like, really fast? Try this complex. No sled? Just push a weight plate with dumbbells on top.
This unique metcon complex uses unilateral dumbbell exercises combined with sled work to get your heart hammering.
That expensive salt really isn't worth it. In fact, it could be causing a deficiency. Here's why.
No fancy sled, no problem. Make your own pulling sled and smoke your legs any time you feel like it.
The deadlift is awesome, but make sure you progress up to it correctly. You'll lift more and do it safely. Here's how.
