Muscle building tips

For those of you looking for some creative ways to add muscle I've posted a few new articles on The three articles that I have posted are written by Nick Nilsson who is the Vice-President of the online personal training company BetterU. BetterU offers a variety of fitness ebooks that help people improve their abs, lose weight, gain muscle, etc...

The articles that I have found the most interesting are:

How to Gain Muscle by Eating No Protein - Nick talks about a carb and protein deplication program that makes your body more receptive to protein. Great idea that I will be using myself next week. If you have ever competed in a bodybuilding show before the ideas presented in this article really make sense.

How Stretching Can Explode Your Muscle Growth - I've been stretching inbetween sets at the gym for a few years now and really believe it is important for adding additional muscle growth. The artilce goes into details on how and why you should stretch the muslces when they are pumped up.

Daily Specialization Training - Transform Your Weakest Bodypart Into Your Strongest - Bodyparts! - another great concept that I have already put into practice. I've been experimenting on myself by doing handstand pushups (not an easy task) to improve my shoulders. I'll let you get the details from the article and recommend you give it a try yourself.

Until next time.

We have added some reviews for a couple of the New Balance elliptical trainers:

Benefits of Glutamine

If you workout and are serious about putting on muscle then you really should consider adding L Glutamine to your supplementation program. Glutamine has some amazing properties which we will cover in detail below. Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid that is the most abundant amino acid in the blood and muscle tissue. Since glutamine is a nonessential amino acid the body makes it on its own. Glutamine can also be found in high protein foods such as fish, meat, beans and dairy products (milk, cheese, etc). However, glutamine is not only found in meat, there are also some vegetables, such as spinach, that also contain glutamine. - Read More

Physical Fitness for the Middle Aged

Middle Age hits us all, mostly right in the stomach! We look in the mirror, and the person looking back at us does not look happy. Years of stress, improper eating, not enough sleep, and lack of exercise has begun to take its toll on our bodies. Each year, our energy levels seem to be zapped. When we come home from work, we sit on the couch, watch TV (thank God for the remote control!), eat improperly, go to sleep, wake up tired, and start the day all over again. Do you ever feel like you are walking down a spiral staircase? The further down you go it seems like you pick up momentum and are now walking down faster than before. - Read More

Four Count Bicep Workout Shock Routine

Are your bicep workouts getting stale? If so then "Four Counts" may be what you are looking for to spice up your bicep training routines. Now before we begin I would like to state that this is a great way to shock the muscles, I don't recommend you train this way every week. One of my favorite shock routines I like to add to my training is program that I call "Four Counts". The "Four Count" principle is based on the speed of the repetition in a set. The mechanics behind "Four Counts" is simple: the positive movement of an exercise consists of two seconds while the negative movement of an exercise consists of four seconds. Let me use my bicep workout routine as an example - Read More
