Trim the Fat, Keep Your Hard-Earned
Muscle In Time For Summer


Well, the fun part is over. If you followed the guidelines provided in our winter Bulking Up feature, you're looking at a different guy in the mirror today. You’ve been lifting and eating and eating and lifting all winter and into the spring, growing bigger and bulkier day after day. Are you big? Yes you are! Do you want to take your shirt off? No, not really.

Now comes the tricky part. The moment where you turn all of those squats and calories into a ripped, shredded and rock hard work of art. You’re ...

What Time Of Day Is Best For Your Workout?

Harnessing Your Circadian Rhythms to
Derive the Most Benefit From Your Workouts


In the world of day-to-day training, there are two types of people. There’s the person who arrives at the gym bright and early, before work, looking to get their metabolism churning and jump start their day with a high-intensity workout. This person might be fueled with just a cup of coffee and looking to turn an early-hour caloric deficit into some excess fat loss. If this person is male, they also might be looking to harness a morning peak in testosterone levels for added strength and aggression.

And then there’s your afternoon/early evening workout warri...

Doc's Whey

Doc's Whey

The all-natural foods marketplace is growing exponentially these days, as consumers grow increasingly wary of artificial ingredients, genetically modified food sources, and growth-hormone-linked products. One long-time advocate for the transition to healthier, natural supplement sourcing, sports nutrition expert and acclaimed trainer Dr. Carlon Colker, finds himself in the right place at the right time with the launch of his all-natural advanced whey protein formula Doc’s Whey.

 

“I conceived of Doc’s Whey in conversation with my high-profile celebrity and pro athlete clients,” Dr. Colker says. “They are very conscious of the purity and potency of their nutrition and they require the highest quality...

How To Read A Protein Label

Avoid the Scams and Get Maximum Value
From Every Gram of Protein You Consume


It’s not always fun being a protein manufacturer. Every day brings new challenges, whether they’re raw materials shortages, budget constraints, or the ever-increasing marketplace dominance of one particular gigantic online retailer. (Is that a smile on the box? Or a smirk? We never know.)

Always there’s the pressure of the bottom line. Can you get the protein into the jug and make enough of a sliver of profit to survive another day? There is one aspect of the marketing process that many protein manufacturers absolutely love, however. That’s designing a new label for a new or already existing product.

That’s where the fun is! Bring in some designers. Have them compete with each other to cr...

Tips For Increasing Your Protein Intake By Adding
Natural-Flavored Whey Isolate to Your Meals


If you’re a fitness-conscious person, focused on maintaining peak physique and performance, you already know the importance of maximizing protein in your diet. Protein supports the repair, recovery and growth of healthy muscle tissue, which in turn facilitates enhanced training capacity while burning excess fat for fuel. Protein intake also generates thermogenic activity, as it requires more energy to digest and utilize than either carbs or fats. In short, protein is a nutritional “win-win” proposition.

Supplementation Guidelines For Bulking Up

Supplementation Guidelines For Bulking Up


Get Big and Prioritize Muscle Mass
Over Fat Gain With Targeted Nutrition


The most common error bodybuilders make when they’re trying to bulk up is they simply don’t eat enough. Even experienced bodybuilders often under-estimate the steep increases in caloric intake necessary to add significant mass. That’s a problem, because the most ambitious, aggressive workout regimen in the world won’t generate appreciable gains if your body is under-fueled. Under-eating is a recipe for failure.

Before we address guidelines for boosting your caloric intake into optimal range, let’s figure out how many calories we need to maintain your current mass. To do that, we’re going to need to figure out your Basal Metabolic Rate, or the number...

Going Beyond The Squat, Press,
And Deadlift To Make Bigger Gains


Any lifter worth his salt spends the majority of his programming on improving strength with The Big 3: bench press, squat and deadlift. Each of these moves has tremendous value for anyone looking to get bigger, stronger, leaner or more athletic. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of your workout should be filled with less impactful movements. In fact, there exists a second trio of exercises that can greatly improve your ability to pack on lean muscle and hoist Herculean weight loads in the gym. Here’s why you should be spending more time on the pull-up, the dip and the Romanian deadlift.

Multi-Pathway Approach For Eliminating Excess Fat

Multi-Pathway Approach For Eliminating Excess Fat

Combining Thermogenic Protein With Other
Weight-Loss Factors For Maximum Effect


Read enough mainstream journalism about the latest diet fads, and you might get the impression that real fat loss is some mysterious or downright impossible task. Should you starve yourself? Cut carbs? Go paleo? Eat exotic foods? Increase cardio? There’s no end of conflicting advice. In the bodybuilding ranks, however, fat loss isn’t mysterious and it certainly isn’t impossible. In fact, it’s a basic part of the job description.

Bodybuilders understand that real fat loss is inextricably intertwined with increasing and/or maintaining muscle mass. Fat doesn’t burn itself, after all. You need muscle for that. There are many reasons why you’ll never starve yourself thin, but the most important is that caloric restriction, applied ...

100% Natural, Non-GMO-Sourced Whey Protein Isolate


It’s an undeniable fact: sometimes simple is better.

If it takes you ten minutes to read the ingredients label on a whey protein supplement, it’s time to start asking yourself how many of those ingredients are in that jug for your benefit, and how many are in there for the manufacturer’s benefit. More specifically, how many of those ingredients are present solely to help the product last longer on the shelf or to make poor-quality proteins taste a little better?

Fortunately, not every protein manufacturer is putting their interests before yours. Take Doc’s Whey, the new 100% natural whey protein researched and formulated by sports nutrition expert and acclaimed trainer Dr. Carlo...
