If you’ve watched the male gymnasts during the Olympics before, you no doubt noticed their eye-popping upper-body mass. Some have delts, arms, and torsos that resemble competitive bodybuilders’. Very impressive, especially considering that muscle mass isn’t one of their goals; it’s just a side effect of their sport…[Read more…]
Q: I’m not a competitive bodybuilder or physique athlete, but I want to look muscular for more sex appeal. I train all my major muscles, but I want to specialize on the muscles women notice. Any ideas on which ones those are and the best way to make those attention-grabber muscles pop?
A: Several years ago IRON MAN did a survey, an anonymous poll of a number of women about their likes and dislikes concerning the male physique. The results were very interesting… [Read more…]
Q: Help! I need more arm mass, and I’m hoping to add about an inch quickly. I’m using the Direct/Indirect 4X Mass Workout [pages 30-32]. It has only one direct arm workout a week [on Wednesday with delts]. Can I add some extra arm work on Friday when I train chest and back again?
A: Absolutely, but you don’t want to do full arm workouts on Friday’s chest/back day. Instead, we’ve found a couple of quick-hit two-move combos that will do the trick to get your arm mass up so they’ll be looking huge and thick. [Read more…]

A: That’s a great program—and because you’re using moderate-weight, growth-threshold training, you can tolerate more frequent work for most bodyparts; however… [Read more…]
Thankful to not wake up at 3 A.M. again this morning, so I was fully rested for a Full-Muscle Friday. Shoulders felt every inch of every rep, and back and biceps were very much “in tune” today, too. Plus, there was some voluptuous forearm vascularity to finish things off. LOL… [Read more…]
Already into round two of the new routine, and I’m loving it so far. It’s nice to have a new split, and adding in several X-Hybrid techniques makes it even more exciting – and motivating… [Read more…]
I must have some sort of iron allergy, because my shoulders and arms got all swollen and veiny from the weights this morning. LOL! Really good one today, and I was crazy impressed with the pump… [Read more…]
