The Real Reasons Why Dieting Sucks?

dieting

Brothers, we’ve all been there. We’ve all got our own stories to tell. We all know dieting f*cking sucks. Here are a couple of observations from some bodybuilders and coaches: Machine The alarm goes off. 4 a.m. came too quick. Your mouth is dry, you can’t walk without hamstring cramps and egg whites with oatmeal does not seem to make you run to the breakfast table anyway. One hour of cardio, 90 minutes of weights, baked chicken breast, steamed green beans, and a headache to wash it down. All before 10 a.m. Damn, dieting sucks. G Diesel The dreams man… the …

Glycemic Index, Insulin, Fat And Building Muscle!

Glycemic Index

Even in the offseason, a true bodybuilder has to watch what they eat, or what would otherwise be a powerful, strong physique becomes fat and mush. Some bodybuilders don’t worry about it, the ectomorphs like Dexter Jackson and Flex Wheeler burn so many calories at rest that it’s difficult for them to stay in an anabolic (a state in which the body has more calories than it can use) state. But for people like Ronnie Coleman, who is a little endomorphic (tending to carry surplus fat) and tend to break down muscle with fat when calories are restricted, offseason diet …

How Natural Are You?

natural physique

This is still very much the question these days. It’s one thing to stay away from illegal muscle-enhancing substances and all that they bring with them, but in my eyes that doesn’t make you any more natural. As long as you treat your body as something you can fill up with spare parts, like an old junkyard car, you are nothing but a person without respect for his body. If you have the right genetics this will rarely hinder you in your progress but you’ll feel it later in life when you start wearing out. Being natural does not just …

The Best Protein To Build Muscle And Grow in 2020

protein

Like the majority of serious bodybuilders and athletes, I used to eat a ton of protein, 300 or more grams a day, most from protein supplements. Even though I spent a ton of time working out hard too, I saw less than optimal changes. The question is why? After years of intensive research and experimentation, I’ve finally figured out what the “secret” is: There’s a muscle-building equation that you’ve got to satisfy in order to get bigger, and most protein supplements are addressing only half of it. At best, they’re only giving you 50% of the muscle gains you’re capable of achieving. Many …

Alanine – The Essential NonEssential Amino Acid

how to use beta alanine

The emphasis these days has shifted to specific amino acids over the use of others. For example, the essential amino acids, and especially leucine are considered important and many feel that the other amino acids aren’t necessary. Others feel that a few of the conditionally essential amino acids, such as glutamine and arginine are also extremely important for maximizing body composition and exercise performance. But that’s not the case. All of the amino acids are important in one way or another and ignoring can be a big mistake. WHAT CAN ALANINE DO FOR ME? Let’s take alanine for example. Most …
