Here’s another great quote from Dr. James DiNcolantonio (follow @drjamesdinic on Instagram): [Read more…]
Q: I know you like to be in shape for the summer. You look ripped in pics. When do you start paring down winter fat, and how do you do it? [Read more…]
Don’t judge a look when it’s covered. Someone can appear fairly average in clothes, especially drug-free bodybuilders—lean and fit. But when the shirt comes off, they can look 20 pounds heavier and ripped. [Read more…]
Here are four shots of Bruce Lee showing his impressive V-tapered torso. Obviously, Lee wasn’t a competitive bodybuilder, but his acid-etched physique stunned those who witnessed it in peak condition. [Read more…]
Q: I just started the Size Surge program. I love it and can already see results! I just had a question about abs. In the this program, you have only one day for abdominal work. Is that really enough to get great washboard abs? Can I add some ab training to other days or maybe the off days?
A: You can add some ab work if you like, but keep in mind that your abs are getting a lot of work supporting your torso on all the big exercises you’re doing on Monday and Friday—from presses to upright rows to squats.

Q: I’m a powerlifter, but I want a better physique. I’m not sure how. I’ve got some muscle, but I sure don’t look like a bodybuilder. What should I do? I’m thinking I just need more isolated exercises for each muscle, like pushdowns for triceps. If I keep pushing heavy weights on all those exercises, I’ll look more like a bodybuilder, right? Do any of your e-books address my problem?
A: You gave a clue to one of the big reasons so many trainees make slow-to-no muscle gains: They’re brainwashed into believing that heavy training exclusively is what builds mass. That’s simply not true… [Read more…]
Okay, Bruce Lee wasn’t a competitive bodybuilder, but his physique stunned those who witnessed it in peak condition.
Hard to believe he was 5’8” and weighed only 128 pounds. You read that right.[Read more…]
