The Method Behind the Mass

Jul 9, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Think back to high school physics class, where you learned that force equals mass times acceleration.

Exercises for Extra Credit, Vol 1

Jun 13, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
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.

End with a Bang!

Jun 6, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Finishers challenge your will power, provide a great "pump" and are a hell of a lot of fun. Finishers add an extreme metabolic stress component, which is a key factor in maximizing hypertrophy. This is particularly important for that "meat head" lifter who has avoided high rep and bodyweight training ...

The Case for Submaximal Effort

May 30, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
I grew up in a gym that was less of a fitness club and more of a Louie Simmons altar; Westside was the best side and no argument otherwise was entertained. We did ourselves a disservice. While we grew in strength -- and as lifters -- under the Westside method, ...

4 Moves for a Massive Chest

May 20, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Faking a straight on, one dimensional selfie on Facebook is easy, but real life is three dimensional and eventually someone will see you from the side.

Will Cardio Make You Fat?

May 14, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Diet Articles, Training Articles
We all know the type. Every gym has them. She's the woman breezing along on the elliptical trainer for what seems like hours. Or the guy trudging on the treadmill. Day in, day out, there they are, on the road to nowhere. Maybe they're even working in a little interval ...

Are You Trying Too Hard?

May 9, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
In the literature of fitness and bodybuilding, the philosophy of super-maxed-out, balls-to-the-wall effort on every lift is everywhere. And there's something to be said for that philosophy. After all, if you don't try hard, you won't get anywhere. But believe it or not, there's such a thing as being too ...

6 Training Mistakes That Are Sabotaging Your Mass Gains

Apr 24, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
I firmly believe the pursuit of increased strength, size and conditioning is as much art as it is science. Sure, science has told us a great deal about how to get stronger and larger, but it certainly doesn't provide all of the answers, all of the time. It certainly provides ...

Core Curriculum

Apr 4, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Modern core training has evolved into an amalgamation of circus tricks -- gimmicks invented to sell DVDs and training programs. In reality, the core needs simple but intense challenges to improve, not moves devised for spectacle's sake. Forget about exhibition! Let's get back to core training that produces. Below you'll ...

4 Movements for Massive Triceps

Mar 27, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Everybody that trains wants big arms, but almost everybody underestimates the role of the triceps in the arm-size equation and focuses a disproportionate amount of time training the biceps, in spite of the fact triceps compose 2/3 of the upper arm. Let's take a look at four exercises that will ...

Welcome to Death Row

Mar 13, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
When I first started seriously strength training in 1994, much like every other newbie, I loved to enthusiastically train my chest and biceps. My high school strength coach at the time was smart enough to know if he allowed teenage boys to perform 4 or 5 sets of bench press, ...

Get Ready to Shoulder the Load

Feb 20, 2014
Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Training Articles
Life is plagued with necessary evils -- taxes, grocery shopping, pretending that you like your girlfriend's brother.
