Basic Terms & What to do for Beginners

beg.jpg

What is a Set and a Rep?
A rep is the number of times you perform an exercise before a rest period.
A set is the number of cycles of reps that you complete.

How Many Sets should I do?
Research shows that a beginner can get the same benefits from doing one set then a beginner doing three or four. The reason for this is because muscles respond quickly to resistance exercise in untrained individuals. However, after about three months, individuals will become less responsive and multiple sets (three to five sets) will become necessary.

TROY Workout

Trogan

The epic workout

In order for Brad Pitt to get ready for the role in the movie Troy, He dropped cigarettes and sharply cut back on beer and chips, although he did allow himself the occasional treat: McFlurry shakes from McDonald’s, “though it was more for a little taste of home, you know, a little Americana.”

Brad used a low-carb, high-protein diet during the training for his role. Physically, Pitt prepared for the role with a year of intense training. “The first three months were daunting and not fun at all.” His days included two to three hours in the gym, two additional hours of sword work and four high-protein, low-carb meals. As a result, he gained about 10 pounds of brawn.

Biceps Workout

Bigger Biceps

Biceps can help everyone in many ways. They don't only look good but they can increase your strength dramatically as well.

The best way to build biceps are not heavy weights...an often mistake by many beginning body builders. The best way to build your biceps are to use comfortable weights. What this means is that your not using other muscles to help lift your weight. Your biceps are solely lifting they wait by itself.

Bigger Arms faster!

Bigger Arms

Many Men today wish to achieve "Bigger" arms, and thus they believe they must work their biceps like crazy!.... Well I hate to tell you that working your biceps will do little to improve your arm's mass & size.

Working the Triceps are the best way to build up your arms fast.

How will triceps enhance your arms?

1) They help support your biceps.
2) They are made up of 3 different muscles, so your now packing on some more meat.
3) They look really good!

So what's a good routine for triceps?

Why Should I Work My Calfs!?

calf-muscle-exercises.jpg

I think a large reason why men feel pain in their knee joints is because of underdeveloped calfs. With such a heavy upper body the lower body is forced to move alot more weight than average proportions... I think strengthening and stretching the Calfs will make a world of a difference...

-------------------
If you’re like a number of men out there, one muscle you likely struggle with is the calf muscle. Most men will state that one of their training and fitness goals is building bigger calves since they’ve put in a lot of work to develop powerful legs, but yet this lower leg muscle is still lagging behind.

Parkour Exercises

parkour.jpg

WHAT IS PARKOUR

Free Running is basically a sport consisting of efficient acrobatic movements in a normal urban environment. One basic attribute is getting to one's destination in a unique and direct way. For example, instead of walking around a city block, Free Runners would go straight through the middle using common obstacles to their advantage. The way one overcomes these obstacles is a huge part of Free Running. Anyone can walk down stairs or climb over a wall, but the ability to do these things in the most efficient way possible is the key idea in this sport. As tricks and techniques are learned, new paths become available and the precision of one's movements increases.

Parkour is another term for the sport, which involves minor differences. The main difference is that flips and certain specific tricks are not practiced in Parkour, but are included in the sport of Free Running. Because flips are believed to be less efficient, they do not play a role in Parkour, in which the goal is oriented around precision and efficiency. I both agree and disagree because I find that doing flips in the right situations can, in fact, be the quickest path to reach my destination.. Another difference is that Parkour is typically non-competitive. Those who practice Parkour believe that competition will contradict the ideals they hold, making the sport a big 'race to the finish' instead of something one enjoys doing with friends who share a passion for the sport.

Parkour is one of the fastest growing forms of exercise right now, and it was originally introduced by the French. With the aim to get from one place to another with precise movements that have the utmost efficiency with regards to both time and energy expended, it requires large physical demands by the body to perform these exercises correctly. Parkour has gradually been introduced into pop culture through appearances in movies, music videos, TV shows, video games, and finally in literature. A few examples where it can be seen are in the James Bond movie, Casino Royal, in one of Tony Hawk's skateboard video games and in Splinter Cell.

FBI Workout

FBI Workout

It takes a certain type of individual to successfully become an FBI agent. Not only do they need to have strong mental capacities, good reasoning skills, the ability to think and act quickly, and excellent vision and hearing, but they must also be in great physical condition.

Any person who wants to apply to become an FBI agent will be put through a rigorous fitness test, and if this testing is not trained for they are unlikely to be successful. Fortunately, as long as a proper training program is sought, the test should not be an obstacle.

Tempo is usually shown by 4 numbers for example 3110 or 1130.

What does this mean?

Each number is the length of time in seconds you will spend at a specific phase of a lift. The meaning of a number in a certain position varies depending on the lift, as different lifts begin in different phases.

Taylor Launter Workout

“I was in the gym five days a week, two hours a day,” Taylor Lautner says in the August issue of Interview
magazine. “At one point, I was going seven days straight. I had put on a lot of weight, and then I started losing it drastically, so I was worried. It turned out I was overworking myself,” he said. “My trainer told me that I couldn’t break a sweat, because I was burning more calories than I was putting on.”

Two Killer Workout Finishers!

Burpee

OKAY, so Monday I performed an upperbody split routine and ta session alone was fairly brutal as I did a strip set after my 4 sets of 6 rep on 4 exercises (2 super sets), but then I had to go and do the following workout finisher. This was a BIATCH to complete!!!

Descending Metabolic Pairing

Chin Ups Paired With Dips. Basically what I did was 55 reps of each exercise (55 chin ups and 55 parallel bar dips) but I alternate between the 2 exercises, starting at 10 reps for each and then descending down through the rep range until I perform 1 rep for each exercise.

P90x Chest and Back

The P90X chest and back workout is no joke! It is as intense as they claim it is, and at the same time it is fun, and radically effective!

Even as difficult as it was, Tony Horton does a great job of both motivating you to really push your limits, while at the same time encouraging you to take breaks when you need them. There are also several water breaks when you can catch your breath, and plenty of time devoted to warming up, as well as cooling down.

Look like Tyler Durdan (Fight Club)

Fight Club

Look like Tyler Durden
In order to get that muscular and shredded look for the movie Fight Club; Brad used an intense workout routine for amazing results. His workout was characterized by focusing on one muscle group up each day, then giving it the rest of the week to recover. This is very beneficial for adding muscle mass fast, because muscles grow during rest periods and not during the actual time in the gym.

Finally, at the end of the week, he finished off with a good cardio workout. This put his body in fat-burning mode, which served to shed any extra padding that covered his muscles, giving him that chiseled look.

Here are the exercises that made up his workout. He performed 3 sets, taking approximately 60 seconds to rest between each set. Also, he used a weight that is challenging enough that to complete 15 reps (with the exception of pushups and pullups), but be fatigued on the last rep. Remember, proper form is a must!

P90x Shoulders and Arms

P90X_Shoulders-and-Arms.jpg

The set up of this workout is geared more towards working the targeted areas in short, 2-round bursts, rather than the longer sustained sets of exercises in some of the other workouts. The Shoulder and Arm routine is broken down into five 3-set sections, with each set containing an exercise for your shoulders, your biceps, and your triceps. What really rocks, however, is that many of the movements target more than one muscle group, and that extra bit of intensity makes a huge difference compared to doing more standard exercises.
