Are You Training Hard Enough To Build Muscle Mass?

Are You Training Hard Enough To Build Muscle Mass?


4 Loading Strategies for
Ramping Up Intensity and Gains


Oh, we’ve all been there. Call it “The 3 x 12 Blues.”

What’s up for today? Bi’s and tri’s. You load up the triceps pushdown with roughly 70% of your one-rep max and here we go. One, two, three, zoning out, zoning back in, eleven, twelve.  You step back, waiting forty-five seconds, a minute, bouncing on your toes to look busy, and then go again. The magic twelve. Same as it ever was.

Maybe you can see yourself in one or more mirrored walls at the gym. How long has it been since you’ve looked any different? Why aren’t you growing?

Maybe it’s because muscles love routine. They love routine because it allows them to adapt to ...

What Time Of Day Is Best For Your Workout?

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...

Are You Overtraining?

Are You Overtraining?

8 Signs You’re Overdoing It
Plus 8 Tips For Getting Back on Track


“How can I be working so hard and achieving so little?”

We’ve all been there. Or at the very least, we’ve heard plenty of people express this age-old lament. “Why am I not making more progress? I must be overtraining.”

Well, maybe. Four times out of five, the “overtrained” gym warrior isn’t working as hard as he or she thinks they are. This is the guy checking his iPhone between sets or the woman who’s been doing the same workout in the same way as long as she can remember. These are the people who are eating too little to gain mass or too much to lean out.

But what about that fifth person? Are you that fifth person who is genuinely trying too hard? Are...

7 Secrets For A Better Bench

7 Secrets For A Better Bench


Increase Weight, Reps and Results
With These Tips From the Experts


Put any two gym rats in a room and you can rest assured the first question asked won’t be “What’s your barbell row?” or “How much can you do on the leg curl machine?”

In any gym (and especially among bodybuilders) the bench press is king. It’s the accepted standard for determining how strong you are. Given its supremacy on the gym floor, it’s amazing how many people you see doing them wrong. Poor preparation, poor form, and poor rep schemes will keep you from reaching your greatest potential and may even lead to injury. If you want to radically increase your all-important one-rep max, take a tip or two from some of the greatest athletes ever to ra...

The Next 3

The Next 3

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.

28 Minute Leg Crush

28 Minute Leg Crush


Targeted Compound Leg Movements
For Colossal Quads and Hams


No one ever truly looks forward to leg day. Even those who appreciate a little tussle at the squat rack now and then tend to approach leg day with a certain amount of dread, the certainty of lightheadedness during the workout merely a prelude to the pain that follows. But instead of skipping leg day – which is a one-way ticket to a poorly proportioned physique – a better bet would be to simply make it more efficient. If you construct a routine where the light at the end of the tunnel is visible from the first rep on, you might train with greater gusto and trigger better gains. This rest-minimal leg-day gauntlet calls for 28 minutes’ worth of total work that’ll leave you bigger and stro...

Supersets For a Massive Chest and Back

Supersets For a Massive Chest and Back

Unique Combinations of Moves to Grow
Your Showcase Torso Muscle Groups


Because chest and back are such high-profile muscle groups, most guys prefer to train them alone. And that approach makes total sense since doing so allows you to train each group with maximum intensity. But there’s something to be said for the utility of supersets, particularly when you train opposing muscle groups (i.e. quads/hamstrings, biceps/triceps). But the real success lies in the pairing – the exercises that you choose to include in your routine. This chest/back routine deviates from the typical bench-and-row superset equation, creating the perfect environment for gains in growth and brute strength.

Get Lean and Maintain Mass With Sprint Intervals

Get Lean and Maintain Mass With Sprint Intervals

Attain Maximum Physique
Benefits From Minimum Cardio


Despite our best efforts, there’s a long list of activities and exercises that even the most ardent gym-goers tend to avoid. There are front squats, of course, which are perhaps more effective for quad-building than back squats but are exponentially more uncomfortable. And a show of hands for those of you who do burpees on purpose? We didn’t think so. But the most universally shunned activity for serious lifters? Running. Because . . . it’s running.

The fact is that even lifters who are sold on the value of pounding the pavement are loathe to actually do it because of any number of reasons. It’s difficult. It’s boring. It can even hurt for those whose mechanics are lacking. But here’s the good news – you don’t need to be a spandex-clad cardio...

Body Basics Training For Strength And Size

Body Basics Training For Strength And Size

Keep It Simple With These Targeted Training
Protocols and Achieve Your Physique Goals


If you’ve been training long enough, perhaps you are able to train instinctively and that’s a beautiful thing. But not everyone has the experience or intuition to be able to walk into the gym and just cobble together a routine out of the air based on what they think their body needs. In most cases, lifters tend to agonize over which exercises to use, which routines to try and which rep ranges will be best for their goals. But, ladies and gentlemen, it doesn’t have to be so complicated. When in doubt, it is always best to go back to basics.

Going through the motions in the gym is the death knell for all lifters. Once you’re comfortable, you can consider your gains at an end. If you’re striving to maximize performance each time you set foot in the gym, your head’s in the right place.

Science has led us to some solid tactics that have become commonplace: a detailed, dynamic warm-up, diligent supplementation with creatine and super-premium whey protein and progressively heavier weights, to name a few. But what have the labcoats offer...

Dense By Design

Dense By Design

Focus on work density to build strength,
improve endurance and burn fat.

We’ve all been guilty of it at one time or another. Three sets of 10. Five sets of five. Up, down, up, down, re-rack, rest, repeat. We all want to become machines in the gym but we shouldn’t become mechanical along the way. While certain rep ranges and volume prescriptions produce particular results, we shouldn’t become so enamored of them as to marginalize other methods of training. Restructuring your workouts to chase a particular number of reps, even if for just a few weeks, can have a dramatic impact on muscle size and strength, while also

Tips and Tricks for

“The front’s for show and the back’s for go.”

An Expert's Tips and Techniques for a
Super-Productive Bench-Press Workout


Lifters often blame the bench press for their bad shoulders. Many of these folks hit the bench before they’ve accomplished an effective warm-up. A few cross body stretches and some plate swings don’t count.

A solid shoulder warm-up, however, improves bench-pressing performance and lowers injury risk. It takes only ten minutes and it's a simple process.

General to Specific

Warm-ups follow a simple progression from general exercises to specific exercises. The general movements wake up the nervous system and increase body heat. Specific exercises target the movement we’re preparing for.

Immense, robust triceps rule. Whether you’re a powerlifter questing after a 400-pound bench press or an every day Joe that wants his shirt sleeves to pop, building respectable triceps is a must.

Don’t Let Shoulder Stiffness or Pain
Undermine Your Upper-Body Mass

Big Back Building Blocks

Big Back Building Blocks

Go WIDE With These Targeted
Variations for Traps And Lats


“Strong back, strong man.” The quote has long been attributed to legendary strongman Bill Kazmaier. I’m not sure if he actually said it or not, but it seems appropriate. He’s one of the strongest men that has ever lived.

Strong back often equates to big back—something all iron gentlefolk seek. We all appreciate traps and lats dominating the back of a T-shirt. It’s an image that sends a strong message.

Training Tips for Building
Powerful Glutes & Massive Hamstrings


There’s an old training adage that goes: The front is for show and the back is for go. While there’s truth to this saying, it’s not one hundred percent accurate. While the back does provide the go, it also gives us a good show.

Go back to the early days of your own training (this is something I’ve thought a lot about myself recently). Think about what worked. If you were like me, I’d just go in, add weight to the bar or machine whenever I could, and try to outdo my previous best efforts in a number of different rep ranges on the big exercises. And you know what? It worked. That is, it worked until I started complicating things needlessly with shiny new techniques that the “pros”, “bros” and “gurus” were advocating.

Add An Inch To Your Arms

Add An Inch To Your Arms

I typically don’t speak for others, but I’d hazard to guess that there’s not a strength athlete alive that doesn’t like having big arms. Strongmen, powerlifters and bodybuilders unite in affection for strong, sizeable pipes. Aesthetically pleasing and functionally sound, large, powerful arms are the accessories every strength athlete needs. The problem is that most arm training programs are fluffy and soft—a bunch of high-rep curls and triceps pushdowns, but nothing with strength-building gusto. Let’s change that.

Increase Your Frequency

Most gym goers plan a weekly bi’s and tri’s day, hammering their arms with copious curls and unreasonable multitudes of triceps exercises. It’s a fun day that shows initial results, but it’s not the optimal way to add an inch to your arms.

Increased stimulation with varying loads equals Read full article

Spring Workouts: Think Outside the Gym

Spring Workouts: Think Outside the Gym

Spring’s here, our hibernation ends. The morning walk to the car no longer requires a teeth-chattering shimmy; birds and leaves are popping up on trees, and snow makes a swift, and appreciated, exit.

After three months of an indoor-bound, Vitamin D-less existence, it’s time to break through the front door and get some sun on our backs. It’s time for a spring outdoor workout.

Minimal Equipment, Maximal Production

We can’t transport heavy gym artillery off-site, so maximal strength work isn’t our goal. We can, however, train power, movement and recovery—the keys to better performance—with minimal equipment and a bit of creativity.

Snag a moderate weight dumbbell or kettlebell. Moderate, of course, is relative—choose a bell you can goblet squat for a difficult set of twenty. By difficult I mean the last few reps are a grind that challeng...

How Deep Should You Squat?

How Deep Should You Squat?

Maintaining Perfect Squat Form to
Maximize the Benefit and Safety of Every Rep

Lifting lore is laden with perpetuated myths and unsubstantiated dogmas. Stories of never-actually-witnessed mythical figures that curled a Volkswagen and bench pressed a cruise ship. Each myth supported by a training dogma that supposedly validates the methods that granted these Herculean achievements. Reality and myth often disagree.

One such myth that’s evolved into dogma is the ass-to-grass squat — every lady and gent that dare load a squat bar must achieve the deepest squat position their body allows. Consequences be damned! Consequences, however, are real and should be minded; the reality is not everyone should deep squat. The conundrum we must solve: how deep should you squat?

What about Full Range?

6 Tips From A 600 Pound Deadlifter

6 Tips From A 600 Pound Deadlifter

Master the Art of the Deadlift
With These Expert Guidelines

I’ve been blessed with a few abilities. I can write, I can dunk a basketball and I can deadlift like my life depends on it.

My training career has gifted me quite a few triple bodyweight deadlifts, several on the north side of 600 pounds. So today, I’m sharing with you six tips that helped me achieve them.

1. Find the Middle of Your Feet

Conventional deadlift wisdom prods lifters to “drive through their heels” while pulling. Ever the contrarian, I wholeheartedly disagree.

Driving through the heels while deadlifting is supposed to counterbalance the heavy load that’s dragged up the legs. In reality, however, it unbalances us. Our brain...

4 Chest Exercises You Should Be Doing

4 Chest Exercises You Should Be Doing

Learn The Chest Development Secrets Of the Legends


A 2014 Phil Heath looks a helluva lot different than a 1980 Frank Zane. The muscular development of today's IFBB Pro bodybuilders was unfathomable prior to Dorian Yates. Twenty-plus-inch arms are the norm. Leg development, once an afterthought, is judged with an eagle eye. And big and shredded is no longer the exception, it's a necessity.

With all of the evolution in bodybuilding, however, chest development has gone backward. In spite of being much heavier, many of today's top pros couldn't carry the jock strap when it comes to the chest development of the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Reg Park.

Add Variety to Your WorkoutsWith These Unconventional Exercises

In my writings here at ProSource, I've made no bones about the fact that getting stronger on a handful of basic exercises (squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, chins) over the course of many years should be the primary focus of anyone seeking a better physique and enhanced fitness. I've stated time and time again, regardless of one's training goals, training split, etc., workouts should always begin with diligent, focused, systematic, and most importantly, PROGRESSIVE work on one or two multiple joint exercises.

Target Your Quads With These4 Front-Squat-Based Strategies

Target Your Quads With These4 Front-Squat-Based Strategies

To have a set of quads that truly sets you apart from the rest of the crowd, you need to broaden your exercise horizons. The easiest way to do this is to just flip your squat around. The front squat, where you hold the bar on a "shelf" across your front delts, shifts the focus to the quads by forcing the torso to remain more upright throughout the range of motion. It can be uncomfortable at first but if grainy, bellowing quads are on your wish list, it's worth it to push through and master this alternative to traditional squats. Josh Bryant, MFS, CSCS, PES, owner of a dozen world records in powerlifting, offers a few of his best performance-boosting tips for the front squat.

"In case of emergency, break glass and pull down handle." So commands the standard fire alarm box, which comes in mighty handy when you're facing a serious emergency situation.

Alas, there's no such mechanism for many other types of emergencies. Which is too bad for bodybuilders -- after all, while certainly not as dangerous and life threatening as a raging conflagration, smacking into a stubborn sticking point can certainly prompt similar levels of anxiety in a dedicated gym rat. When your body stops responding, despite your best efforts, what can you do?

Well, there is something. In a case of your muscle- and strength-building progress coming to a dead halt, you can simply break the proverbial glass on the following AndroFury Training Program.
