So you think you have heard everything there is to know about muscle building? If you have read everything, tried everything and heard everything about muscle building but still resemble the silhouette of a Calvin Klein model instead of a buff fitness model than I promise these next three ‘little-known’ free muscle building tips will accelerate your muscle gains immediately!
4. Never Train More Than 2 Days Consecutively

But the bodybuilding magazines say to split up my program into 5 separate days… Yes, I am more than familiar. I call these 5 day splits ‘drug programs.’ They treat your body simply as a ‘muscular system’ and neglect the other systems such as your central nervous system, hormonal system and immune system. Each of these systems have a unique part in muscle growth. Not to mention that these ‘drug programs’ only work if coupled with a few thousand dollars a month on drugs.

Just because you trained your chest on Monday does not mean your immune system, or hormonal system or central nervous system has FULLY recovered. What happens when you return to the gym NOT FULLY recovered? Will you be able to lift more weight?

If you are not able to lift more weight than guess what happens to your level of fitness? It certainly will not go up because you will be depleting your energy reserves further into a deep, dark hole called ‘over-training.’ If you can not lift more weight or ‘out-do’ yourself from your previous workout than how do you expect to create any NEW muscle? It is literally impossible. Taking a full rest day every two days will minimize the chance of over training and ensure your energy reserves are replenished. Read the rest of this entry

training with weightsJust a word of warning:

I will be using the term “bodybuilder” or “bodybuilding” to refer to anyone who wants to build lean muscle and burn bodyfat in this post.

That means you.

Yep… you are a “bodybuilder.” That does not mean you want to look like a monster on stage and pose in front of thousands of people wearing nothing but your undies.

That means you want more lean muscle and less bodyfat — that’s it.

With that in mind, here’s something you have to know: Bodybuilders do not “lift weights” — we “train” with weights.

We use weights as a tool like a sculptor uses a hammer and chisel.

The object of the game is not to lift some heavy weight from Point A to Point B and back. That’s weight lifting. “Bodybuilding” is about making the muscle you want to change do all the work.

Here’s two ways to do it:

Lose fat and gain muscle fast


   Today we want to show you the fat burning diet for a lean ripped body that will look good on any beach But, wait a minute! Do I hear that can’t do because some of the flab gained over the holidays is still on your waist?

If that is the case, forget about the infomercials that promise quick results without any effort, as there is no thing as a free lunch. The good news however, is that you do not need to send me 4 payments of $59.99 for the secrets on how to lose those pounds of fat and get that lean ripped body.

In this article, I cover what needs to be done with your fat burning diet. Don’t worry; I won’t take your carbs away or stick you with a liquid or celery diet. If you want a lean ripped body and have the determination necessary to do what it takes to get it, I describe the path that will lead to it.

1) Eliminate all sorts of junk food from your fat burning diet. That alone will cause you to eliminate empty calories that are not used by the body and are turned into fat.

2) Reduce your intake of bad fats in your fat burning diet.Bad fats are things like butter, cooking oils, and saturated fats such as the ones found in meats. However, ensure adequate intake of good fats such as flax-seed oil. 1 tablespoon of flax-seed oil a day covers all of the essential fatty acid requirements of most people. I tend to take 1 tablespoon in the morning with my protein shake.

3) Reduce your intake of sugars in your fat burning diet.Foods laden with sugar cause a sharp rise in insulin levels. Insulin is a good hormone when it is not present in excess as it carries the amino acids from the protein into the muscle cell so that they can be used for growth and repair. It also carries the carbohydrates into the liver and muscle cells for storage as glycogen (stored carbohydrates) that can be used for future occasions. However, in excess, once the body’s reserves of carbohydrate storage are full, insulin turns these carbs into fat!

In addition, the excess insulin production will also take the carbs away from the blood stream too quickly creating a situation of low blood sugar. In this case you feel tired, groggy, and usually craving sweets. It is a vicious cycle that guarantees fat gain.

4) Increase your intake of protein. Protein foods provide the building blocks of muscle tissue. Without it, building muscle and burning fat efficiently would be impossible. Its importance is paramount. Protein also helps increase your metabolism every time you eat it by 20%! It also makes the carbohydrates that you eat ‘timed release’, so you get sustained energy throughout the day and you get a more steady release of insulin as opposed to the sharp rise you would get if you ate carbohydrate foods alone.
Good examples of protein are eggs (I use Egg Substitute: 1-1/2 cups liquid), chicken breast (cooked, skinless and boneless: 6 oz), turkey (cooked, skinless and boneless: 6 oz), lean (90% lean) red meats (6 oz), and tuna (6 oz). Each serving size equals approximately 35-40 grams of protein.

5) For every serving of protein, have an equal size serving of starchy carbohydrates. Remember, too many carbohydrates cause a huge release of insulin. When there is too much insulin in the body, your body turns into a fat storing machine. Therefore, it is important that we eat no more carbohydrates than necessary and that we eat the right amount of carbohydrates. Good sources of starchy carbohydrates are: Oatmeal (1 cup dry), sweet potatoes (8 oz baked), potatoes (8 oz baked), rice (1 cup cooked), pasta (8oz cooked), corn (1 cup canned), peas (2 cups cooked). Each serving approximately equals 40-50 grams of carbohydrates.

By ensuring that you get no more carbohydrates than your body requires you will guarantee that body fat decreases. Now, I am not saying to eliminate the carbs. All I am advocating is portion control. In other words, if you have a serving of protein, have an equal sized serving of starchy carbohydrates. The minimum amount of carbs that you can get away with is an equal serving of them in three meals.

 6) Drink plenty of water! Water is by far the most abundant substance in our bodies. Without water, an organism could not survive. Most people who come to me for advice on how to get in shape almost always underestimate the value of water. Realize that a lack of water will not only cause dehydration, but also would stop the fat burning processes!

7) If you fall into temptation, do not sabotage the entire diet! We are all human and we are bound to make mistakes. If you fall off your diet, do not binge all day long because you fell off once. Just start eating correctly at the next meal. Bingeing for a full day can destroy the progress that weeks of effort delivered. Do not fall for it.

8) Be prepared! Prepack all of your food so that you have all of the food that you will need throughout the day. I don’t know about you but my life is pretty hectic. Without my cooler, I would be at the mercy of the fast food joints and then I would probably be a candidate for the Mr. Pillsbury Doughboy Championships. In addition, if you run into a situation where you don’t have food with you and don’t have the time to stop somewhere to eat either, hunger will increase and drive you to binge! So prepack all of your food; such practice wins half the battle.

9) Get your Zzzzz’s. That’s right, getting enough sleep. Everyone’s requirements differ but, on the average, people usually need between 7-9 hours per night depending on their level of physical activity. Sleeping adequately will ensure that your insulin metabolism operates properly. A faulty insulin metabolism leads to sugar cravings which spell disaster in any diet.
In addition, deprive your body of sleep and you’ll have lousy fat loss. As a bonus, you also get muscle loss which lowers your metabolism. The reason for this is because without enough sleep the body stops producing anabolic hormones (Muscle Producing/Fat Burning Hormones; e.g. testosterone and growth hormone) and starts increasing the production of catabolic ones (Muscle Destroying/Fat Depositing Hormones e.g. cortisol). In addition, you will lack the energy and focus to get through your workouts and it will also lead to overtraining as you won’t be able to recover adequately.
To top it off, there is research that indicates that a lack of sleep creates cravings and binges in addition to hardening of the arteries which leads to heart attacks. If you don’t think that you have enough time to sleep, then turn off the TV and make the time!

10) Stop associating social gatherings with food. Unfortunately, we live in a society that celebrates everything with food, usually the type that does not serve our goals. The minute that you train yourself to think about what is more important for you, the chips and the piece of cake at the party or the six pack of abs (not beer), the faster you will reach your goals. I wish that we lived in a world where exercise gave you a license to eat whatever you wanted. If that were the case, I would be the first one in line waiting for the cake. But since life is not fair, you only have one choice. If that summer body is important enough for you, I am sure that when the time comes, the decision will be clear.

Lose fat and gain muscle fast



Here is a great shoulder workout routine for building bigger shoulders and for breaking through that growth plateau. Give it a try and feel the pump in those shoulder muscles. This shoulder workout routine utilises a combination of three different exercises, which are performed in quick succession to really blitz those shoulder muscles.



The first exercise is the seated military press followed by dumbbell lateral raises and front disk raises. Right lets take a look at the actual build bigger shoulders routine.


Start with the seated military press, you can use a Smith machine or a set of squat racks to support your barbell. Use a moderately weighted barbell one in which you perform 10 –12 reps. Use a shoulder width grip on the barbell. Press the barbell clear of the racks and above your head but don’t fully lockout your arms at the top, doing so will only take the pressure off the shoulders. Slowly lower the barbell to just below the chin level and then press back to the starting position. Perform 10 – 12 controlled reps Read the rest of this entry

Building Muscle The Wrong Way #4 – Reading Bodybuilding Magazines

Did your last bodybuilding magazine promised 2 inches on your arms in 2 weeks? Did it tell you could increase your strength by 40% in one week? Did it show you the latest ‘arm program’ which looked the exact same as last months arm workout? I know this sounds extreme, but almost 90% of the information you see in bodybuilding magazines is dead wrong and only works for guys who are using steroids.

The modern mainstream bodybuilding magazines are really just muscle comic books written at a 6th grade level. They glorify drug-using bodybuilders and portray them as the picture of health. The cleverly combine two or three rehashed articles, a lot of pictures, gimmicks, sex and hype to sell this nonsense to millions. These magazines may have inspired millions by the pictures but they have also mislead millions.

Building Muscle The Wrong Way #5 – Taking Advice From A Guy Who Uses Drugs

Drugs allow you to train more often because of one’s increased ability to recover, but they also speed up normal physiological processes that normally would not occur, i.e. increased hormonal levels. Not only do bodybuilders take an ENORMOUS amount of drugs; they are also known to inject various substances into their bodies to give selected body parts that enhanced look.
