Extreme Performance Decline Syndrome (EPDS) sounds like a new social disease, but it really has to do with mid-set fatigue. Ever wonder why you can pump out 12 reps on the first set but then have trouble hitting 6 or 7 reps on the fifth set? Luckily, Joel Marion knows how to boost your performance.
Most conditioning programs for MMA involve equipment that just isn't that practical. Not so with this! Here’s a realistic way to whip yourself into shape.

Thibs is on a mission. The angry Canadian wants to see the incidence of training stupidity decrease. Are you a "kitchen sink" trainer or coach? Have you misinterpreted the concept of overtraining? If so, duck!
We'll admit it, this interview bounces all over the place, but read it and you'll come out about 8 times smarter regarding bodybuilding (okay, maybe 7), plus you'll learn some new kick-ass exercises.
Are your bulking phases, or just the act of eating like a bodybuilder, shortening your athletic career or your life? It's possible, but Dr. L's got a plan and it involves "calorie restriction mimetics." Read, learn, live long and prosper.
Now that the New Year is upon us, many people are looking for effective ways to regain the size and strength they might have inadvertently lost. After all, it's damn tough to stay on track with your training during the months when that jolly, red-suited fella who looks suspiciously like a wino shows up in the middle of the night. (No, I'm not talking about your Uncle Steve.)
Whenever you can make a workout more time-efficient, you're stacking the odds heavily in your favor. Not only do you complete your training in less time, but you've also got more time to recover before the next onslaught!

"No one in this world can you trust: not men, not women, not beasts... this you can trust."
"Back in the days of being 297 pounds, every workout was brutal; there was no other alternative. That's not the case any more. Have I become soft, like a former all-star playing out a multi-million dollar contract?"
At first glance, it might seem that the title of this article is a double entendre (you know, like "Kid Rock Rules!"). I assure you, it's not. My linguistic reference of choice is not a music-challenged snowboarder but the <i>Oxford English Dictionary,</i> or for all you acronym lovers: OED.

That's me, except it's not a van and it's not down by the river. But yeah, I basically live in my car. You see, I'm a trainer who goes to people's houses all day long to work them out, so instead of having an office as my home base, my car is my home base.
Is it possible to put more stress on certain parts of a muscle?
Bruce Nadler has seen more boobs than you.
