Everybody who has started a workout regime eventually begins to wonder what supplements will help them reach their goals. Well, the most essential supplement for any bodybuilding enthusiast is protein. When you finish your workout you want that protein right away, rushing it into your system when your muscles need it most. For this effect whey protein is your best bet. Nitro Tech is a great supplement but a bit on the expensive side. I prefer EAS whey protein. You can get a 5 lb bag at Sams Club for $30 and I've found that it works just as good. EAS is a great name in supps. For I take Prolab creatine monohydrate. It's cheap (2 month supply for $13) and since it's unflavored it mixes with my pre-workout N.O. supplement. There's so many other supplements on the market that I would never be able to go into all of them. The best thing I can tell you is do your research and check with a physician before starting any supplement." id="cse-search-box">

I'm gonna have to say the best builder for the tri's is the weighted dip. Its a compound exercise that brings every part of your triceps into action, therefor increasing the size. You can also use the dip machine if your gym has one. When you do dips, do them early in your workout when you're still fresh. The most important thing to remember when doing dips, is to stay upright. Leaning forward brings your pecs into the equation and takes away from the tri's. Also avoid bending your knees as this naturally leans your body more forward. Hopefully you have good success with this!zq4r95tmf8

Blasting Biceps

As I said in the last blog, Im giving you some of the best exercises for each muscle group. Today's muscle group is Biceps. The number 1 overall bicep builder is the barbell curl.
Start with a loaded barbell, holding it at shoulder width, with your elbows tucked into your sides. Contract your Biceps to bring the weight all the way up, squeezing them hard at the top. Slowly lower the weight back down. Be careful not to rock and bring your back and legs into it, as this will take focus away from the bi's. You can alternate hand grip to a wide grip to work the inner biceps, and close grip for outer biceps. If the staright bar hurts your wrist, then the EZ Bar will work better for you as it takes most of the pressure off of your wrists. Hopefully this will work good for you. Next blog we will cover Triceps. Tune in then. Until Next time....

Best Mass Building Chest Exercise

On this one, I'm going to have to go with the dumbell bench press. Start with 2 dumbells, in a seated postion and use your legs to kick them back as you go onto your back. Start with the dumbells down and your arms at a 90 degree angle. Bring your shoulder blades togethor and push the weight up, squeezing your chest muscles at the top, then bring them back down into the start position. For mass, pick a weight that allows you to do 8-10 reps before hitting failure.
This exercise has been regarded as the best chest builder for a long time. I like to alternate the dumbell and barbell bench press each chest workout. You can also pre-exhaust your pecs by starting your workout with pec deck flyes. This makes the burn you feel from the bench press even better! If you are a beginner I wouldn't start any workout by pre exhausting. Start with the compound exercises then finish it up with isolation exercises. Hope this helps! That is all for today but read tomorrow for Tricep building exercises!

Everyday Fitness

Well, this is my first blog of my new daily fitness blog. Here a wide variety of things will be talked about. Everything from exercises, techniques, muscle gain and weight loss, training splits, and tips. I have had a lot of experience in weight training and other types of training. I have been an NCO in the US Army infantry so I've had a lot of time training soldiers to physically be ready for combat. Ive also taken my own body from 145 pounds to 202 pounds of muscle.
This blog is not me trying to tell you what is going to work for you. Its suggestion and tips from my experiences and comments are always welcome. Let us know what worked for you, because no two people's bodies are the same. Also this is not a replacement for medical advice. Before starting a workout program you should consult a doctor. That is all for now, I will get everything going on the ball tomorrow!
