muscle-mass

I am sure many people have heard that too much protein is tough on your body and bad for your kidneys. I don’t recommend excessive protein, mainly because I don’t believe in focusing on gaining excessive muscle mass. I know there are a lot of people who do want to gain mass and they eat a very large amount of protein as a strategy to pack on muscle quickly. I was curious to see how harsh this type of diet is on the body.

Dear Bodybuilding Dork,

I just wanted to say “thanks”! I have been working out in the same gym as you for the past 19 years and I’ve rarely spoken to you. I know you must think I’m a “pretty boy” for doing cardio and NOT doing hardcore things like yelling and dropping weights. Oh well…maybe you will like me better after this “thank you” letter.

Gaining Muscle Strategically is the Way to Look Your Best

Typically all the guys (and some women) I see in the free-weight room are trying to gain as much muscle as possible. Worse than that, they will take the muscle gain on any part of their body. The problem with gaining muscle just for the sake of gaining muscle quickly creates an unbalanced body.

So why would a guy want to concentrate on building square pecs instead of rounded pecs?

Well…the more rounded a guy’s chest muscles look, the more they look like breasts. That probably isn’t the look most men are shooting for.

There are several chest exercises to focus on to make this happen & some chest exercises you will probably want to avoid as well. Here is a photo of Brad Pitt, which shows what to shoot for. [click to continue…]

I completely believe that building big legs is a waste of your time in the gym. I mean…why work so had at something that makes your body less attractive to the opposite sex?

Before I go on…I wanted to post a video of a bodybuilder with massive legs. I’m willing to bet that 90% of women find this amount of muscle repulsive. [click to continue…]

Many guys dread aerobic exercise. It isn’t as fun as lifting weights…plus many guys are afraid it is going to make them look like a marathon runner. I don’t want to blast marathon runners, but many of those guys are seriously lacking in muscle! I don’t like the bulky look, but the skeleton look isn’t so good either! Note: I’m not saying that marathon runners are sissies either…that is seriously a tough form of exercise!

If you want to get ripped, you will lose SOME muscle…it really isn’t a big deal because 90% of men have plenty of muscle…they just need to get rid of a lot of fat. Don’t worry about losing a bit of muscle when you are in the fat burning mode. It is really easy to gain back once you burn off that excess body fat.

So How Do You Burn Off Fat Without Becoming a Complete Sissy in the Process?
