12 Mind-Blowing, Muscle-Building Protein Shakes. Mixing up a protein shake is a chemistry experiment. A little of this, a little of that, a scoop of this, and then BLEND. (Imagine whirring noise here.) Once the OFF switch is pressed, the results of the experiment are at hand. If the ingredients represent a perfect blend, if they were entered in the correct amounts, drinking won't stop until the shake is gone. If you take a sip and then stop to assess it, something went wrong, something's amiss. Here at Bodybuilding.com, we don't need no stinkin' experiments when it comes to protein shakes.

If you're lactose intolerant, omit dairy products. Recommended Articles Aubrie Richeson Back To 's Main Page
Stop Training Like An Idiot! The 12-Week Shortcut To Size Stop training like an idiot! "Dumbbell" should describe your weights, not you. Let the smartest man in bodybuilding take you from beginner to advanced in just 12 weeks! But let's be fair... Maybe you've never lifted anything heavier than your coffee mug.

Backyard strongman | Bodhifitonline - Blog Now that the word is spreading like a wild fire that cardio is a waste of time, we are starting to see some new ways to improve the conditioning of athletes and everyday people, looking to improve their aerobic capacities and endurance. It’s a known fact that our bodies are made to adapt to any type of physical stimulus or aerobic activity. So doing the same thing over and over again is counterproductive no matter what you are doing. Countless times I stopped someone doing boring cardio workouts and saw results the following week.

The Superman Program: Training This program is novel for many reasons, and your muscles will respond well to it. That said, you’ll have to let go of some of the training dogma you’ve come to live by. For example, in Workout 1, you’ll notice that you first do a chest/back superset and then a superset of back and shoulders. Afterward, you hit chest again.

Superman Training Split Rep Counting This program build muscle two ways: by increasing weight while reps decrease, and then the opposite. *For those who want to continue for an additional four weeks Back to The Superman Program Homepage
