Improve conditioning, increase muscle development and propel your physique to new heights! While these moves may seem better suited for the playground, they’re actually beneficial to those of us a few years beyond playtime. These explosive activities are collectively called “Plyometrics”.

Q: I’ve heard that the reverse-grip pressdown works the triceps lateral head better than the standard pressdown does. What’s the best way to perform this exercise? A: What you’ve heard is correct. Generally speaking, the medial head of the triceps does most of the work in elbow extension, especially at the beginning of movements. But in the reverse-grip pressdown, the most stress is placed on the lateral head, the big, beefy muscle that is seen in the upper middle portion of the back of the upper arm. This exercise not only adds variety to your triceps workout, but it also…

Big arms are the mark by which recreational lifters and professional bodybuilders inevitably make comparisons. In fact, they have their own lexicon: guns, cannons, firearms. Heck, can you even name the pro bodybuilder with the biggest chest, or quads? Probably not, but I’ll bet you can visualise your favourite’s heavy artillery.

After reviewing some of the concepts inherent in smart biceps training, I’ll point out which are the best exercises and how to include…

PUNCH UP YOUR MASS When it comes to training, are your gains coming faster than an Ali one-two combo? Or are you getting worked over in the corner like some washed-up pug, folding up under a rain of body blows? While you probably don’t want to admit it, chances are it’s the latter. You see, so many of us find ourselves making zero progress after months, even years of battling in the weight room. Unfortunately, and contrary to popular opinion, building your body is not an endeavour of brute force. When you aren’t making progress, simply dropping your head and…

To the discerning eye, your back can either close the deal or seal your fate when it comes to having the total package. Think about it: without flaring lats, you…

Chocolate is healthy! Chocolate’s sweet decadence is one of life’s greatest pleasures. But does it fit into your healthy lifestyle? It’s no health food, but scientific research does back up your need to indulge once in a while. Just remember: the darker, the better. Chocolate, particularly dark chocolate, contains antioxidants and flavonoids that have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. In fact, chocolate has more antioxidants than spinach, blueberries or even prunes, and 40 g of dark chocolate offers as many antioxidants as 150 ml of red wine. In addition, oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat also found…
