New UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum Talks Training And His Long Road to Success
Fabricio Werdum is a man who won’t take “no” for an answer.
It seems every time Fabricio enters the Octagon, the doubters are out in force, saying “not this time.” The naysayers were present when Fabricio fought previously undefeated Fedor Emelianenko (34-4) and highly-touted Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (13-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC). And, of course, they were ...

ProSource Exclusive Interview with Jay Cutler, 4X Mr. Olympia and CEO of Cutler Nutrition
If the conversation we shared with 4-time Mr. Olympia and bodybuilding legend Jay Cutler were transcribed below with 100% accuracy, it would include a lot more exclamation marks. Double and triple exclamation marks, in fact, because that’s the way Jay is. He approaches every subject of importance to him with maximum enthusiasm and undivided attention.
When he ruled the bodybuilding world from 2006 through 2010 (with a brief detour in 2008), Jay’s enthusiasm manifested itself in unbridled generosity, not just with the f...
The Fitness Guru Shares His Secrets for Improving Upon the Ultimate Mindset & Physique!
Long-time visitors to ProSource.net know that MusclePharm co-founder and executive vice president Cory Gregory is a guy we like to talk to. We’ve talked to him about supplements; we’ve talked to him about the future of our industry and MusclePharm’s place in it. His famously extreme workouts have long been among the most popular training articles we’ve ever run.
Lately, the news about Cory is that he’s taken his physique to a place where few athletes have ever ventured. Alw...
As our bodies age, our strength and vitality fade. We trade physical pursuits for less taxing endeavors, a nod to the inevitable decline of our bones, muscle and connective tissue. This is the fate that awaits us all, right?
Actually, no. Emphatically ... no.
The symptoms of aging have a lot more to do with surrendering to lowered expectations than any unavoidable physical manifestation. Just ask Patrick Campbell. He's been defying Mother Nature for decades, maintaining a body many people half his age would kill for, and firmly establishing himself as the senior most member of ProSource's Team Nytro.
As our scientific understanding of the physiology of aging deepens, the notion of sedentary and illness-plagued later years is less and less widely accepted. While all active pursuits are...
Niners Special Teams Ace Shares His Workout Wisdom
San Francisco emerged as one of pro football's most exciting stories in 2011, as they shook off a disastrous 6-10 season in 2010 to go 13-3, win their division, and come within one overtime score of advancing to the Super Bowl. After years in the sub-.500 doldrums, the Niners now have a bright future linked to high-impact young pros like Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Vernon Davis, and Alex Smith. Better yet, in an era of hyperdrive offenses, the Team by the Bay did it the old-school way--with a smashmouth defense and one of football's most cohesive and dominating special teams units.
Anchoring San Francisco's newly revitalized special teams is a 2011 free agent pick-up from Baltimore, Tavares Gooden. Gooden, who had started at linebacker opposite the legendary Ray Lewis, has been known around the league for his rare blend of size,

Elite-Level Track Athlete Leroy Dixon Takes Aim at London Olympic Gold in 2012
When U.S. track athlete Leroy Dixon lines up for a dash at history during the 2012 Olympic Games, a nation will stand at the ready to cheer him on. What they may not realize is that this elite-level sprinter - standing on the world's biggest athletic stage aiming for his enviable moment of golden glory - at one point wasn't even the fastest runner in his own house.
"I started running track and field in fifth grade," recalls the 28-year-old Indiana native. "I used to race my sister in the street and she was real fast at the time. She used to always beat me when we raced, and I really wanted to win. So finally, when I was able to beat her, I just took to it and started running with a purpose."
Brute Strength Propels Doug Madewell in His Quest to Be World's Strongest Man
"My biggest goal is to be the World's Strongest Man. Hey, who wouldn't want a title like that? It just sounds cool."
Admit it -- it does sound cool. So it's hard to blame
29-year-old strongman competitor Doug Madewell for taking direct aim at the title, hell-bent on moving whatever anchors, anvils and Atlas stones they may throw in his way.
The 5'11", 245-pound married father of two, who hails from Dayton, Ohio, has been competing in professional strongman events for three years. Madewell, an avid outdoorsman who counts archery and hunting among his passions, earned his pro status by winning the lightweight title at the North Ameri...
Grambling State's All-Time Leading Rusher Frank Warren Sets His Sights on the Pros

Green, and perhaps the most compelling athlete of them all, Heisman Trophy recipient and national-championship-winning quarterback Cam Newton.
However, real draft experts know that it's the later rounds that make or break a team's draft day and their subsequent long-term success. Which team will uncover the "diamonds in the rough" as the draft progresses into the late...
