Bodybuilding 4 day workout routine With this routine, you will have three days rest per week and four training days total. While this sounds pretty easy, if you attack the weights with intensity, you’ll see dramatic changes.

Bodybuilding bulking diet Personally I feel that, unless you are holding quite a bit of bodyfat, it is fool hardy to eat clean all the time. You need look no further than all the big-boys in the sport to
find out if this theory works.

Static Contraction Training

Static Contraction is done by holding a weight in a fixed position,
usually fully contracted, for an extended period of time. They are
typically done for 1 or 2 reps only and the weight should be held
for 15-25 seconds although the actual optimal time is still up for
debate.

Static Contraction is easier to do on certain exercises and more
difficult on others. For example, flies, leg extentions, and side
raises are great exercises to use statics on, but deadlifts or
squats would be more difficult. On the compund exercises you
would have to use substantially more weight than you use for
regular reps. Statics also work great on pulldowns.

There are a few ways I use them. First, you can do a set to
positive failure and once you cannot complete any more,
have someone help you get the weight to a fully contracted
position and hold it up as long as you can. Then lower it
under strict control until you have finished the rep.

You could also just pick a weight 20-40% heavier than your
normal weight for that exercise and either use a cheat rep or
have someone help you to get the weight in the fully
contracted position. Then hold it as long as you can and
lower it under control until the rep is completed. If you do
them alone and not after a set of positive reps, you may
want to so 2 static contractions instead if one.

This is a great technique to use to blast through plateaus,
but don't use it too often.

My Secret For Adding Quick Size To Lagging Body Parts

Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret that can help
you add some relatively quick size to lagging body parts.

Let's use the calves for example since most people don't really
put that much effort into calf training. I understand...it's
painful. But a great set of calves can really make your physique
stand out. I admire a great set of calves much more than a great
set of arms. Everybody works hard on building up their arms.
Hardly anybody busts their butt building their calves.

Here's what I want you to do:

For the next 4 weeks, work your calves at the END of your workout
twice a week with preferably 2 days of rest between calf workouts.
For example, work your calves on Mon. & Thurs. or Tues. & Friday.

Like I said, calves will be the very last body part training you do
on those training days.

Do 5 sets of 8 to 10 reps of the Standing Calf Raise or Donkey
Calf Raise with as heavy a weight as you can handle. Rest as
long as you need between sets. The most important thing is to
recover enough to use heavy weight for the required number of reps.

Try to use the same weight for each set. If your reps fall below
6 due to fatigue then lower the weight or rest a little longer
between sets. Each week try to add at least 5 pounds for all 5 sets.

After your 5th set, rest about 2 minutes and reduce the weight
you've been using by about 50%. Do one last set for at least
20 reps. If you can do more then keep going until temporary
muscular failure, but do at least 20 reps. If you can't complete
20 reps then reduce the weight again and without rest get your 20
reps.

Now IMMEDIATELY go over to the water fountain, or grab your bottle
of water and down at least 10 to 15 tablets (20 tablets
if you're over 200 pounds) of Nitrobol.
For more information, go to: Nitrobol

If you don't have Nitrobol, then you can use BCAA's (branched
chain amino acids) but the effect won't be as potent as Nitrobol.
If you're using BCAA's then you need to take about 25 to 30 GRAMS
(not milligrams).

The combination of the heavy weight/low rep training with
the final high rep set will have the muscle totally engorged with
blood. The Nitrobol will hit the bloodstream within 8 to 12
minutes and will be rushed to the area pumped with blood.
This will contribute to faster recovery which means faster
size and strength gains.

What's that you say? You've got puny calves and you don't care?
You want big arms because they're "showy" muscles and nobody
ever sees your calves? Geez, am I the only guy that cares about
symmetry anymore?

OK, OK...I'll explain how to apply this technique to arm training.
It's almost exactly the same except with a little twist.

Work your arms last in the workout as I said earlier. I prefer
to work biceps first (so does Larry Scott). When your biceps
are pumped it provides a nice little "cushion" when doing triceps
work. It feels nice, too!

So do your 5 sets of 8 to 10 reps of a barbell or dumbbell curl
just like I described for calf work. Rest as much as you need
between sets. We want to use as heavy a weight as possible
(without cheating, of course).

Then move on and do your 5 sets of 8 to 10 reps of triceps work.
Lying EZ-curl bar triceps extensions are a good choice.

After your 5th set of triceps work, rest a couple minutes and get
ready for your final pump super-set.

Select a weight about 50% of what you used for your biceps exercise
and do a set of at least 20 reps and more if you can. Go to
temporary muscular failure with this set. If you can't complete
20 reps then reduce the weight again and without rest get your 20
reps.

Then IMMEDIATELY without rest, go to your triceps exercise (again
with about 50% of the weight you used for your heavy sets) and
do a set of at least 20 reps and more if you can. Go to
temporary muscular failure with this set. Once again, if you can't
complete 20 reps then reduce the weight again and without rest
get your 20 reps.

Now IMMEDIATELY down at least 10 to 15 tablets (20 tablets
if you're over 200 pounds) of Nitrobol. Take your Nitrobol
with water, not any of those sugar-loaded "post workout" drinks.
For more information, go to: Nitrobol

Wait 45 minutes to an hour after you took the Nitrobol and drink
a post workout meal replacement or protein powder. In my opinion
a post-workout drink should have about 40 grams of high quality
whey, milk, or egg protein along with about 60 grams of carbs with
minimal fats. Fats slow digestion and you want this meal to be
digested quickly.

So there you have it. You should start seeing some results within
about 2 weeks as long as you're eating correctly and getting enough
protein. Eat about 40 grams of some high quality complete protein
every 3 hours.

My Bicep and Tricep Workout
by W.R.

Here is some information on upper arm training. I received
an E-Mail about a person who only does two sets total for
his upper arms, and he is having success with his muscle
growth. That information helps reinforce the theory that
more is not better. I used to work each bodypart 2 times
a week. I stopped weight training for a long time, due to
my work schedule. I didn't stop reading magazines and
books. I realize that times change, and scientific studies
have come a long way. I am 37 years old, 5' 6", and weigh
185 lbs. Since I have been weight training again (about 3
months) I just can't believe how my body is responding.
After 6 weeks of training I decided to try creatine. I like
to keep my workouts as simple as possible. I could
actually watch myself grow. My upper arms are growing
like crazy. And I am doing less now than I used to, and I
am getting better results. The fact is that the creatine is
playing a big role in my growth because of muscle cell
volumnizing. But I am giving my body longer to recover,
and that plays just as big as a role. If I work out my biceps
on a Monday, I hit them again on Friday. Then I only hit my
biceps on Wednesday of the following week. So I am
traning each bodypart 3 times every 2 weeks. Here is a
typical upper arm work-out for me.

Bicep
2 warmup sets with curl bar
3 x 8 with a curl bar increasing weight each set
3 x 8 - 10 one arm preacher curls
2-3 x 8 - 10 alternating dumbbell curls

Every couple weeks I substitute concentration curls for
preacher curls, I also do dumbbell hammer curls instead
of alternating dumbbell curls.

Tricep
My triceps a usually warmed up from my chest workout,
so I go right at them hard.

3 x 6 - 8 close grip bench press
3 x 8 - 10 skull crushers
2 x 15 tricep kickbacks

I keep my workout simple but very intense. After taking
creatine for three weeks my upper arms grew a little
over two inches. Take a little more time to recuperate
between workouts and keep your workouts simple.

Q: I'm over 40 and due to injuries can no longer lift heavy.
My question is can I still use light weights and high reps
to build muscle size and shape? I'm not trying to look like
Mr. Universe, I just want to look good with my shirt off.

A. Yes, you can still build a body you can be proud of with
an old school bodybuilding technique called "Muscle Spinning".

Muscle Spinning was a method used the 1940's and 1950's, it
is actually the use of...
