Heres What The Shady Weight Loss Industry REALLY Thinks About You

But we know this information is so crucial to your success we couldnt’ wait any longer to share it with you.

My partners over at Prograde Nutrtion rock because they pride themselves on being honest and trustworthy.

If you REALLY want to know the truth about BS pills and supplements like:

The Top 4 REAL Fat Burning Secrets From The Supermarket PART 2

In part 1 of this series I revealed four fat burning secrets available from your supermarket: coffee, hot red pepper, cinnamon and green tea- and their calorie-burning effects. ( In case you missed part one you can click here to read it.)

Along the way, we learned that increasing your calorie-burning rate is the first step towards achieving negative fat balance, a metabolic state of affairs in which your body is burning more fat than it’s storing, and without which, fat loss is impossible. In this post we will discuss how practical it actually is to actually use the “Top Four” to help you get you into negative fat balance and see the fat pounds melt off.

Studies have made it fairly clear that taking caffeine can increase your calorie-burning rate. But can drinking coffee have the same effect? For help in answering this question, I reached out to Dr. Abdul Dulloo (Ph.D.), a lecturer and research fellow in the Department of Medicine and Physiology at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. He said that: “There have been

Men’s Health Abs Model Max Wettstein Conversation Part 2

Today, I bring you part 2 of the conversation between Max Wettstein (Men’s Health abs model and fitness expert) and myself.

Jamin: There are literally hundreds of ways to work your core but most people only do sit-ups and crunches, which I rarely do anymore. What is your favorite exercise to train your core?

Max: My favorite core-specific exercise is plank-variations and the Vacuum-pose (which targets the Transverse Abdominus). My core is constantly engaged to some degree during all of the sports I play though, so rarely do I have to focus on it. The posing & flexing I’m required to do on shoot-days also really hits my abs & core hard! I also apply ‘Abs-Awareness’ all day every day!

Jamin: Ok so I’m sure everyone wants to know how a Men’s Health cover model trains his abs. Would you mind sharing one of your favorite ab workouts?

Max: I apply ‘Abs-Awareness’ throughout my life! Full-body, functional fitness & playing sports are primarily how I train my abs. Also, isometric flexing & posing during shoots & shoot-prep is next. But my favorite abs-specific exercises are plank-variations & hyper-extended crunches while laying back on a Swiss Ball. I do these until I feel the burn & to failure!

Men’s Health Abs Model Max Wettstein Conversation Part 1

I’ve got an AWESOME interview for you to kick off the weekend (especially if your goal is to get LEANER, more MUSCULAR, and get a fitness model’s physique)…

I recently sat down with my good buddy & Men’s Health Abs model Max Wettstein…have you heard of this dude?

You have probably seen him on Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, & Maximum Fitness magazine covers. Plus he was on the cover of the Men’s Health Ultimate Abs Guide last year.

Anyways, I always wondered if he was the real deal, until I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him a short while ago…

…and let me be the first one to say, Max isn’t one of those boy band, pretty boy, don’t know how to train fitness model types. This dude knows his stuff and his warrior style workouts prove his toughness.

Plus the guy is an athlete and that is always cool in my book! :)

5 Sneaky Muscle Building Tricks To Ignite New Muscle Growth

Today I’ve got a killer post for you from my good buddy Vince Del Monte, creator of Maximize Your Muscle, with 5 untapped strategies you can use right now to build new lean muscle. Try one out today and let me know how it goes!

Untapped Target #1 – Volume Lifting

The reason it works: cumulative fatigue, hormonal production, and achieves a good pump. If you understand the importance of pre and post workout nutrition, jamming your muscles with workout drinks that include dextrose and amino acids, then guess what? Increase blood flow to a specific muscle will increase the amount of aminos being pumped into that muscle and it will significantly increase amino uptake. This means a much more anabolic (muscle building) response to your workout.

How to make it work: maximize the pump as well as muscle fatigue.

Methods you can experiment with: regular sets in the 8-10, 10-12 and 12-15 rep ranges, drop sets, pre-fatigue (super set isolation plus multi-joint), post fatigue (superset multi-joint plus isolation), giant sets

The Top 4 REAL Fat Burning Secrets From The Supermarket

Most of us don’t just want to lose “weight”. We want to lose body fat. This is what really concerns us, cosmetically speaking, at least. With swimsuit/pool season already upon us, many of us are already in a panic about other people seeing us sporting our “winter coats”.

Body fat, referred to by scientists as adipose tissue, is the stuff that can hide shapely, defined muscles from view, make your bikini fit awkwardly (or not at all), put rolls on your belly, and so on. To lose body fat and prevent it from finding you again, you must burn more of it than you store. When you achieve this scientists say you are in negative fat balance, and it can be a very positive thing. Indeed, if you stay in negative fat balance long enough, then you will unquestionably lose body fat.
