You can only gain muscle so fast. Theoretically, you have to eat more than you burn to synthesize new muscle tissue. People tend to think of this as a day-to-day process, but protein turnover is a continous process, so in reality, it is a minute by minute process. This means, you constantly have the chance to add muscle, lose muscle, gain fat, lose fat, etc., etc. Attempting to pig out in order to gain new muscle is pointless, and can be counter productive in the long run. Something that I like to have people do is follow 1-3 VERY high carb days each week. On these days, carbohydrates will be VERY high, and insulin levels will be elevated throughout the day. Insulin has many effects on the body. It is obviously a storage hormone, but is just as effective at storing fat as it is at storing carbohydrates. So, on this day, fat is kept to a minimum. Insulin is HIGHLY anti-catabolic, so it will be essentially physiologically impossible on a cell to cell basis to utilize protein for energy. This means, that a much higher percentage of protien you eat that day will be available for synthesis of new muscle tissue. So, even though you're eating less protein....MORE protein will be available for synthesis of new muscle.

Credit to www.bodybuilding.com As I have discussed in many of my training articles, I think it is very import to train with a wide variety of movements. Not only does this keep training interesting, but also it keeps the body in the earlier stages of learning and in a constant state of adaptation. Many times, we just have to think outside the box a little and toy around with tradition. For instance, I have been dubbed the "Push-Up Nazi" by many of my athletes. They question whether I have much of a social life, or if I just sit around thinking up new ways to do old tricks.

Last week, we posted the original Eat My Meat article. Despite its sophisticated title, the article contained an enormous amount of useful information.

Years ago when I read articles I used to read every word. I'd try to devour it all. After years of reading, I discovered most of the article's were just filler and there were usually just a a few good points worth absorbing. While these points were often very good, I really didn't need the other crap.

  Credit to www.elitefts.com It seems like the debates over effective resistance training program design will never end. Throughout my career as a trainer I have studied and implemented countless strength and hypertrophy regimens. What always intrigued me was that so many of these programs promote what appeared to be completely antagonistic training philosophies! One guru will insist that only high volume training is ideal for muscle growth, while another expert declares that low volume, high intensity training is the key. Other routines were so convoluted that you would spend more time contemplating the complex variations therein than actually training! This is called “analysis paralysis”.

“The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure but to avoid pain.” —Aristotle Over the last decade of training, I’ve had many people throw several different training “myths” out at me. Whether it was “lifting stunts your growth” or “eating too much protein shuts down your kidneys” or “too much strength will hurt your martial arts,” I’ve heard them all. Two myths I hear most often are regarding soreness and training.

Strong Hands Not Geek Grip! There was a time when having strong hands was just part of training and not a subculture all of its own. Strong hands were one section of the body trained equally hard and rested enough to recover and work them again the next session. However, having strong hands does not mean you have to start discussing the intricacies of grip technique. If having strong hands does nothing but give you great confidence to hang onto the bar for deadlifts or farmer’s walks then the goal has been achieved.

Credit to www.elitefts.com I was recently honored when Charles Glass mentioned me in his Q&A in Muscular Development magazine. For those of you who don’t know who Charles Glass is, first off, shame on you. But, here’s a short bio. Charles Glass is an IFBB professional who is now known as the “trainer of champions.” He has quite honestly trained or consulted with more state, national, and professional level bodybuilders than anyone on the planet. He currently has a column in Muscular Development magazine, and I think I’ve read everything he’s ever written. Charles’ personal competition highlights include winning the 1983 Nationals and the 1983 World amateur championships, placing top ten at several IFBB pro events, and taking fourth place in the Masters Olympia in 1995.
