  • Band Pullovers - The Torso Builder
    on November 18, 2019 at 10:54 PM

    The addition of a band anchored behind you allows you to keep tension on the muscle throughout the entire range. The classic dumbbell pullover is an exercise bodybuilders have been doing for ages. Back in the Golden era they were credited with building bigger lats, pecs, and serratus. Many top bodybuilders also swore they increased the size of your rib cage too. You have probably seen old black and white pictures of people like Arnold Schwarzenegger doing them.   And some people went as far as to call them the upper body squat.   read more

  • How to Use Ascending Reps to Build Size and Strength
    on November 12, 2019 at 12:52 PM

    Assuming that building strength and muscle ranks highly among your training priorities, then you may be interested to learn about ascending reps. Assuming that building strength and muscle ranks highly among your training priorities, then you may be interested to learn about ascending reps (also known as ladders).   What are ascending reps?   Ascending reps are simply sets of increasing reps, with the same weight, until a total number of reps are completed.

  • How to Get That Elusive Spark
    on November 11, 2019 at 11:17 PM

    It’s easy to get carried away by emotion and let it control you instead of using the energy of it toward a singular effort. The first gym I trained at looked like a set from a 80's action movie. From the outside, it looked like an old stone mill. Every member was given a key to get in and train whatever time of day or night you wanted. At the entrance, there was a table with a boombox, CD cases, and a clipboard to sign in with the date and time.   read more

    on November 7, 2019 at 4:04 AM

    There’s no need to overcomplicate things—packing on muscle for powerful and healthy shoulders can be simple. Your shoulders say everything about you—from the mid-level office employee sitting in his cubicle 9 to 5 with rounded shoulders to the powerful high-level executive standing erect as he leads meetings—your shoulders define how others perceive you.   Tiny narrow shoulders make you look weak and timid—like Bambi.   Massive broad shoulders make you look powerful and confident—like Superman.   If you’re reading this, you and I know two things:   read more

  • Build a Bigger Back With This Single Arm Breakthrough
    on November 5, 2019 at 1:49 PM

    Don’t get me wrong, pronated wide grip pulldowns are a good exercise, but they aren’t ideal to train the lats. If you struggle to build a thick, wide back it is probably not because your program sucks.
