Is Milk Healthy?

The Truth about Milk and Fitness

I get e-mails all the time from people saying they are eating a
healthy diet, and then when I ask them to list out what they
eat in a day it is not healthy at all.

But, I have to say it's not their fault, as we have all been
and still are being fed a pack of lies about food.

This is the first in a series of articles, exposing the truth.

Got Propaganda?

We have all heard "milk does a body good", "milk is the perfect
health Food", "milk builds strong bones", "milk will help weight
loss", etc.

These just like "Got Milk?" are nothing more then advertising
slogans trying to get you to buy a product.

Vince Gironda's Favorite Exercises Dips and Chins
by Paul Becker

Vince Gironda was one of the greatest bodybuilding gurus ever.
He was decades ahead of his time and people today and still
using his methods. Why? Because if followed correctly they
produced the fastest muscle building results in the shortest
period of time.

Wide Pec Dips

Vince felt that the bench press was a poor chest exercise and
his students were insturced on how to do dips to create a
wide pec flare that gave them a classic look.

You must use a parallel bar that is 33" wide, if it is not you will
not receive the intended benefit from this movement. Anything
wider or narrower will not work the pecs as desired. The most
important execution of the movement is in the elbows: They
must be wide and straight out from the shoulders. The head
has to be in a down position with the chin resting on the upper
chest and the back should be rounded forward.

Cross your feet and make certain they are slightly in front of
your face, not back. Dip down as far as possible and return as
high as you can. Never change this position as it isolates the
pectoral muscles and limits the involvement of the triceps.
Performing the movement with the elbows in will emphasize
more triceps than pecs.

Very few bodybuilders perform this movement as described.
It is perhaps one of the best movements for building and
shaping the pecs there is. But, it must be performed correctly
in order to obtain the results it is capable of providing. Do
not rush the movement, which seems to be a natural tendency.
Take your time and get a full stretch at the bottom and contact
the pecs forcefully at the top of the movement. Do not begin
the movement with the triceps, concentrate on the pecs and
allow them to begin the upward motion.

Gironda Sternum Chins

Many have dubbed this the single best lat exercise ever invented.

Implementation: This involves leaning back throughout the entire
movement. In this variation, the lower portion of the chest should
touch the bar.

Begin by grasping the pull-up bar with an underhand grip,
approximately shoulder width apart. Now hang with your arms
fully extended. As you pull yourself to the bar, have your head
lean back as far away from the bar as possible and arch your
spine throughout the movement. At the upper end of the
movement, your hips and legs will be at about a 45-degree
angle to the floor. You should keep pulling until your
collarbone passes the bar and your lower chest or sternum
area touches it. By the time you've completed the concentric
portion of the movement, your head will be parallel to the floor.

This is the king of back exercises. It not only works the lats,
but the entire back, let's look at why:

1. The beginning of the movement is more like a classical chin.

2. The midrange resembles a pullover motion.

3. The end position duplicates the finishing motion of a rowing movement.

You can now see how this is like three back exercises in one.
