IS DOING EVERY MAJOR LIFT ONCE A WEEK TOO LITTLE?

| April 30, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Many professional powerlifters and bodybuilders perform every major lift (e.g., squat, bench press, deadlift, pull-ups…etc.) only once a week. Since it’s a well-known fact that they are also taking a lot of anabolic steroids to break the natural limits, most alternative gurus tend to consider similar routines ineffective for natties. There is definitely some truth to this […]

LIFTING WEIGHTS: DEALING WITH LOW MOTIVATION

| April 29, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Every new beginning comes with hope and great expectations. You feel like you have finally found a solution to your problems, an escape route, a hack, a way to reduce the misery. Sadly, this feeling goes away faster than you think. It may seem unreal to you right now, but there will be periods in […]

The Aesthetic YOLO Generation is Hiding Behind a Muscle Shield

| April 28, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The fact that your life is ending one moment at a time is one of the most powerful engines in existence. It beats almost everything and can motivate people to get into a wide range of unusual adventures. Everybody has to deal with the little voice that keeps on saying: “Hurry up! Hurry up!” One of the […]

The Difference Between Working Out and Training

| April 25, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Ask a rich man how he has made his millions. The politically correct and therefore most common answer is hard work. Cool, but this is not a morning show. Hard work means nothing by itself. It won’t produce wealth unless it’s put in the right context. People forced to endure endless shifts in factories are without […]

Don’t Let The Mainstream Bodybuilding Media in Your Head The media could cause cancer and prevent you from thinking clearly.

| April 22, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

A few days ago I wrote a comment on Facebook in which I stated that I still visit mainstream bodybuilding sites such as T-Nation, Bodybuilding.com and StartingStrength.com. A reader asked why am I going to those sites despite knowing that most of the information is backed by steroid users and therefore highly unrealistic. I visit those sites for […]

Does The Pull-up Work The Triceps Too? Of course, it does.

| April 21, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The Latin word for triceps is “triceps brachii muscle” which means “three-headed arm muscle”. Obviously, the reason for this name is the fact that the triceps have three heads. Out of the three, only the long head works heavily during pull-ups. The long head originates from the infraglenoid tubercle of the scapula and therefore is part of […]

How Do You Know That They Are Not Using Testosterone? Many "pin" regularly in the shadows.

| April 20, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Making a straightforward natty or not diagnosis is not always possible. There is a specific group of muscle constructors that don’t jump out of the page as easily as men like Kali Muscle. Those individuals are muscular, but not very lean. Usually, they are also pretty strong for the average gym standards – benching 300lbs, barbell rowing 275 lbs, […]

How Strong Can You Get Without Gaining Weight #chicken strength

| April 19, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

More muscle mass equals more strength? Physical strength is the ability to exert a sufficient amount of force against resistance through dynamic or static muscular contractions in order to move or stabilize an object in a voluntary manner. Therefore, bigger muscles cannot possibly interfere with that task unless the range of motion is affected negatively […]

The Ultimate Broscience Fails In Bodybuilding Part 3

| April 14, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Hello. Welcome to Bodybuilding Broscience v.3.0. The claims below may seem outrageous to some of you, but they have been an integral part of the mainstream lifting doctrine for a long time. 1.I should always listen to people who are bigger than me because they will show me the path to ultra-growth. True and yet […]

Muscle Imbalances: Tips and Tricks to Avoid Overthinking

| April 13, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Paralysis by analysis a.k.a. overthinking is very common in the iron community. My lifting background says that the less experienced you are, the more you think about issues that do not really make a big difference. Back in the day, I used to suffer from wrist and elbow pain. I had an overuse injury known as tendonitis. This made […]
