How to Build Huge Biceps.

When starting on a bulking phase, one of the key body parts that many Bodybuilders want to give a specific focus on are the biceps. The biceps are the most highly noticed muscle group by others, so if you have nicely developed arms, people use to think that you’re on top of your workout performance. The most important thing is that  to keep in mind that in actuality the triceps muscle comprises a very large component of the arm, so you must not neglect your triceps workout either, which can give you the perfect balance of what you need to see optimal results.When you are aiming for maximum muscle mass, another important point to note is that lifting heavy must be placed as a priority. Since building more muscle mass  is a combination of a heavy surplus, enough volume, and plenty of calories, it’s a wise decision to focus on exercises that will allow you to lift the heaviest weight possible.Usually for most people this will be exercises such as rows and lat-pulldowns, both of which useful for biceps muscles as well. If you are including these regularly with your exercise program and then adding in other exercises that are specifically targeted towards the biceps muscles you will be right on track for developing the best arms you can.

Here are the five best exercises that focus on the biceps to add after your rows and pulldowns.

Exercise 1: Barbell Curls

barbell curl

The first biceps exercise to perform is biceps barbell curls, which will  allow you to overload your biceps with a heavy weight. Most amateur bodybuilders are slightly stronger when lifting a barbell versus a set of dumbbells, so this is a great workout for maximum strength development.When doing this exercise, the primary thing to focus on is that you’re not cutting the movement pattern short at all, and that you’re not allowing momentum to cause you to lean backward as you hoist the weight upwards.This is one of the most common mistakes with this exercise—momentum performs more of the work than your muscles actually do. If you perform it in a slow and controlled manner, that should reduce the chances of this happening significantly and allow you to place a higher intensity deep within the muscle fibers.

 

Exercise 2: Preacher Curl

Sit on preacher bench placing back of arms on pad. Grasp curl bar with shoulder width underhand grip. Raise bar until forearms are vertical. Lower barbell until arms are fully extended. Repeat.  Seat should be adjusted to allow arm pit to rest near top of pad. Back of upper arm should remain on pad throughout movement. The long head (lateral head) of biceps brachii is activated significantly more than short head (medial head) of biceps brachii since short head enters into active insufficiency as it continues to contract.

Exercise 4: Reverse grip bent-over rows

reverse grip bent over rows

Stand erect while holding a barbell with a supinated grip (palms facing up).Bend your knees slightly and bring your torso forward, by bending at the waist, while keeping the back straight until it is almost parallel to the floor.  Make sure that you keep the head up. The barbell should hang directly in front of you as your arms hang perpendicular to the floor and your torso. This is your starting position.While keeping the torso stationary, lift the barbell as you breathe out, keeping the elbows close to the body and not doing any force with the forearm other than holding the weights. On the top contracted position, squeeze the back muscles and hold for a second.Slowly lower the weight again to the starting position as you inhale.Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Exercise 3: Standing biceps cable curl

standing cable curls

If you want a deep-tissue muscle fibers, cable curls are a good choice for you. Since the pattern of movement is less stable with this movement, due to the constant tension provided by the cable, you will call all the stabilization muscles surrounding the biceps into play as you execute the exercise.You can use a variety of different attachments to perform the cable curls including a rope, a straight bar, or rotating cable handles that allow you to work a single arm at a time.

Exercise 5: Concentration Curls

concentration curls

Finally, the last of the exercises to consider to blast your biceps into growth are concentration curls. When done while sitting, these will also limit the degree momentum plays in the execution of the exercise and place all the emphasis right on the biceps muscle.There will be no helper muscles called into play when doing concentration curls, so this is a good one to add in at the very end of your workout when you’re really looking to finish off the biceps and fully exhaust them.

Some Other Bicep Workouts

I do not recommend you to include all these exercises in each and every workout you do,but I strongly recommend to interchange them from workout to workout while keeping the stimulus high and never allowing your muscles to be too adapted.This constant change in workouts program helps you to push strength level to a new extreme. So make sure you are using a good variety.

Here are some exercise that utilizes a variety of exercises to fully stress your bicep muscle to the maximum

Ayan's bicep exercise 1

Try this for 1-3 weeks of your bulking cycle.

bicep exercise 2

Try this for 4-6 weeks of your bulking cycle

bicep exercise 3

Try this for 7-9 weeks of your bulking cycle

bicep exercise 4

Try this for 10-12 weeks of your bulking cycle

I really think this will help you a lot to gain huge muscle of your biceps.

Be healthy.Be focused.

 

 

How Many Carbs Should You Eat Per Day to Lose Weight?

One of the best ways to lose weight is Reducing the amount of carbohydrates in your diet.It reduces your appetite and causes “automatic” weight loss, without the need for calorie counting.This means that you can lose weight while eating until fullness and feeling satisfied. low carb1

Why should you go low-carb?

Recently some health authorities have recommended that we eat a calorie restricted, low-fat diet.But The problem is that this diet doesn’t really work. Even when people manage to stick to it, they don’t see very good results.But the good news is an alternative that has been available for a long time is the low-carb diet. This diet restricts your intake of carbohydrates like sugars and starches (breads, pasta, etc.) and replaces them with protein and fat.Studies show that low-carb diets reduce your appetite and make you eat less calories and lose weight effortlessly, as long as you manage to keep the carbs down.

Some studies where low-carb and low-fat diets are compared, the researchers need to actively restrict calories in the low-fat groups to make the results comparable, but the low-carb groups still usually win.Low-carb diets also have benefits that go way beyond just weight loss. They lower blood sugar, blood pressure and triglycerides. They raise HDL (the good) and improve the pattern of LDL (the bad) cholesterol.Low-carb diets cause more weight loss and improve health much more than the calorie restricted, low-fat diet still recommended by the mainstream. This is pretty much a scientific fact at this point.There are many studies showing that low-carb diets are more effective and healthier than the low-fat diet that is still recommended all around the world.

How to Calculate Your Need For Carbohydrates:

Actually there is no clear definition of exactly what constitutes a “low carb diet” and what is “low” for one person may not be “low” for the other.An individual’s optimal carb intake depends on age, gender, body composition, activity levels, personal preference, food culture and current metabolic health.

People who are physically active and have more muscle mass can tolerate a lot more carbs than people who are sedentary. This particularly applies for those who do a lot of high intensity, anaerobic work like lifting weights or sprinting.Metabolic health is also a very important factor. When people get the metabolic syndrome, become obese or get type II diabetes, the rules change.People who fall into this category can’t tolerate the same amount of carbs as those who are healthy. Some scientists even refer to these problems as “carbohydrate intolerance.”

Most Effective Guidelines of the time:

If you simply remove the unhealthiest carb sources from your diet, wheat  and added sugars, then you’ll be well on your way to improved health.However, to enjoy the full metabolic benefits of low-carbohydrate diets, you also need to restrict other carb sources.Even though there is no scientific paper that explains exactly how to match carbohydrate intake to individual needs, I have personally found these guidelines to be very effective.

100-150 gm is more of a “moderate” carbohydrate intake. It is very appropriate for people who are lean, active and simply trying to stay healthy and maintain their weight.It is very possible to lose weight at this carb intake, but it may require you to count calories.

Carbs for you:

  • All the vegetables you can imagine.
  • Several pieces of fruit per day.
  • Some amount (not a lot) of healthy starches like potatoes, sweet potatoes and healthier grains like rice and oats.

ARGININE, AN IMPORTANT GROWTH FACTOR.

arginine

Arginine is an α-amino acid. It was first isolated in 1886 by the Swiss chemist Ernst Schultze from a lupin seedling extract. The L-form is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids.Arginine is classified as a semiessential or conditionally essential amino acid, depending on the developmental stage and health status of the individual.Arginine is a conditionally nonessential amino acid, meaning that most of the time it can be manufactured by the human body, and does not need to be obtained directly through the diet. The biosynthetic pathway, however, does not produce sufficient arginine, and some must still be consumed through diet. Individuals with poor nutrition or certain physical conditions may be advised to increase their intake of foods containing arginine. Arginine is found in a wide variety of foods, including

        • Animal sources

dairy products (e.g., cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, whey protein drinks), beef, pork (e.g., bacon, ham), gelatin , poultry (e.g. chicken and turkey light meat), wild game (e.g. pheasant, quail), seafood (e.g., halibut, lobster, salmon, shrimp, snails, tuna)

        • Plant sources

wheat germ and flour, lupins, buckwheat, granola, oatmeal, peanuts, nuts (coconut, pecans, cashews, walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pinenuts), seeds (pumpkin, sesame, sunflower), chickpeas, cooked soybeans.

 

        Arginine plays an important role in cell division, the healing of wounds, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release of hormones.

The roles of arginine include:

      • Precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) Non-L-arginine derived NO can be generated by the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide pathway that is monitored through saliva testing.
      • Reduces healing time of injuries (particularly bone)
      • Quickens repair time of damaged tissue
      • Helps decrease blood pressure in clinical hypertensive subjects NO-mediated decrease in blood pressure is influenced by both the L-arginine-dependent nitric oxide synthase pathway and non-L-arginine or alternative pathway through nitrate-rich foods such as beets and spinach.

Over the past 10 years or so, l-arginine has been one of the most popular muscle building supplement ingredients out there.

It is the primary compound found in most pre-workout “nitric oxide boosters”, with the main forms being l-arginine AKG, l-arginine HCl and regular l-arginine.The idea is that since l-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, and since nitric oxide is a powerful vasodilator (meaning it widens the blood vessels), l-arginine supplementation will increase bloodflow to the working muscles for improved power, endurance and recovery.

Yes, l-arginine is indeed an important substance in the human body and it does play a central role in N0 production.

Muscle Growth

L-arginine contributes to muscle growth because it is needed for the synthesis of most proteins. While the muscle mass increases, L-arginine also signals muscle cells, encourages the release of growth hormone and promotes fat metabolism. The overall result is the well-toned, lean muscle mass sought by bodybuilders. By reducing the fat stores underneath the skin and promoting muscle growth, L-arginine can increase your fitness and improve strength, which are needed for bodybuilding.

Boosting the Immune System

L-arginine helps maintain overall health by boosting the immune system. It mops up free radicals and increases the effectiveness of the cells of the immune system. Since bodybuilding takes you through repeated physical stress and increases the chances of infections and muscle damage, it is important to ensure that the immune system is always bolstered.

Vasodilation and Endurance

Increased strength through building muscle mass is not the only benefit of L-arginine for bodybuilding. By serving as a precursor for the vasodilator, nitric oxide, L-arginine promotes endurance and muscle conditioning. When nitric oxide is released, it widens the blood vessels by relaxing the muscles of their walls. This lowers blood pressure and increases blood flow to the muscles during workouts. The increased blood flow means that oxygen and nutrients are adequately supplied to your muscles and for longer amounts of time. This can help reduce muscle damage, promote healing and provide peak performance.

Supplementation Dosage  for Body Builders

There is no standard L-arginine dosage for bodybuilding, but a range of 2 to 30 g daily is accepted. However, to reduce the occurrence of side effects such as nausea, diarrhea and weakness, you should start with a low dose of 3 to 5 g daily, taken before and after your workouts. After the first week, you increase the dosage to a point where the benefits are maximized and the side effects are reduced. L-arginine supplements should also be taken in cycles by discontinuing the regimen after two months and resuming it after another two months

10 Effective Ways to Lose Weight

There  are some uncountable conflicting advice about how to lose weight.

weight loss

All sort of pills,potions and weird diets have been devised,actually most of them do not have any evidence behind.Though all of those are not a nonsense.After some studies and lot of researches scientists have found a number of actually working weight loss methods.Here I’m going to discuss 10 of the most important weight loss methods with some evidence.

1.Take Eggs At Breakfast:

For losing weight significantly it is very important what are you taking at breakfast.According to International Journal of Obesity’2008,in a study researchers found that taking eggs at breakfast can help you lose weight by 65% than a breakfast of Bagels.The group that taken egg also had a greater reduction of  34% in waist size and a greater reduction of 16% in body fat.Mostly this is due to the fact that eggs are highly fulfilling.People who eat eggs at breakfast feel so full that they eat automatically less at the next meal,and fewer calories for the next 36 hours.Moreover

eggs-vs-bagels-for-weight-loss

  • Eggs are highly and incredibly nutritious. A whole egg contains

 

  1. Folate: 5% of the RDA.
  2. Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
  3. Vitmin A: 6% of the RDA.
  4. Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
  5. Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
  6. Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
  7. Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
  8. Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.

Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health.

Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

If you can get your hands on pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, then these are even better. They have more Omega-3s and are much higher in Vitamin A and E.

  • Eggs raises the good cholesterol(HDL).
  • Eggs contain Choline that most people don’t get enough of.

Choline is a nutrient that most people don’t even know exists.Choline is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions.Whole eggs are an excellent source of choline. A single egg contains more than 100 mg of this very important nutrient.

  • Most important is eggs are a high quality protein with all the Essential Amino Acids in the right ratio.

Well… eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams.

Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them.

Eating adequate protein can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health.

2. Reduce Carbohydrate Intake:

According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 2003.There is a massive body of evidence on low-carb diets, showing that they are more effective for weight loss than the standard low-fat advice that we’re still being given.Low-carb diets tend to reduce appetite significantly, so that people cut calories and lose large amounts of weight without consciously trying to eat less .

Many studies show that low-carb dieters lose 2-3 times as much weight as low-fat dieters, despite the low-fat groups being calorie restricted.

3. Glucomannan is an effective weightloss supplement:

Most weight loss supplements don’t work. However, there are a few supplements that science has shown to be mildly effective.

One of them is a type of fiber called glucomannan. This fiber absorbs water and “sits” in your gut, making you feel so full that you eat fewer calories.

glucomannan-effects-on-weight-loss-smaller

In the graph above,according to the Medical Science Monitor, 2005 you see 3 different experiments where people who took glucomannan lost more weight than the comparison groups.

It won’t work any miracles on its own, but may be a useful addition to a healthy weight loss diet.

4. Protein Causes Automatic Weightloss by Helping You Eat Low Calorie:

When it comes to losing weight, protein truly is the king of nutrients.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’2005,  when people increase their protein intake to 30% of calories. Their total calorie intake drops immediately, and they start losing weight like clockwork.This is because protein is the most satiating of all macronutrients, by far. Numerous studies show that people can lose weight just by adding protein to their diet, without intentionally restricting anything.There are also studies showing that protein can boost metabolism significantly, so it works on both the “calories in” and “calories out” sides of the equation.

5. Take Protein to Reduce Cravings:

People who diet for a long time tend to get hungry. They even get overpowering cravings and start to literally obsess about food.This often happens at night, which is terrible because snacks at night tend to be added on top of the daily calorie intake.

protein-reduces-cravings                                                                    Source: Obesity (Silver Spring), 2011.

As you can see from the graph above, eating protein at 25% of calories has been shown to cut cravings by 60% and reduce the desire for late-night snacking by half.

6.Coconut Oil Can help to Lose Fat:

Coconut oil is a rather unique type of fat, because it is loaded with bioactive fatty acids called medium-chain triglycerides.Some studies(Effects of Dietary Coconut Oil on the Biochemical and Anthropometric Profiles of Women Presenting Abdominal Obesity and An Open-Label Pilot Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Virgin Coconut Oil in Reducing Visceral Adiposity). have shown that it can help you lose small amounts of belly fat, which is the “dangerous” fat that builds up around your organs.

This may be because the fats in coconut oil have been shown to boost metabolism and reduce appetite compared to other fats, at least in the short term.

7. Be Conscious to Lower Your Calorie Intake:

According to the study of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise’2010(Caloric Restriction with or without Exercise: The Fitness versus Fatness Debate),2 groups achieved a calorie deficit of 25%. One group did so with diet alone, while the other group restricted calories by 12.5% and increased cardio to reach the other 12.5%.Both groups lost significant amounts of weight, but the group that also exercised had the greatest improvements in fitness and metabolic health.

Despite what anyone says, calories are important for weight loss. Without more calories leaving your body than entering it, you simply will not lose weight.However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to count calories.Many people find that they automatically eat fewer calories as long as they stick to whole, single ingredient foods.

8. Consume Caffein to Boost Metabolism:

Caffeine, the active ingredient in coffee, can boost metabolism and help you burn fat.

caffeine-and-metabolic-rate

In the graph above, you see how energy expenditure is increased in both lean people and people who have recently lost weight.According to the study(Normal caffeine consumption: influence on thermogenesis and daily energy expenditure in lean and postobese human volunteersin American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’1989), 600 mg of caffeine per day can make lean people burn 150 more calories in a day.

The effect was diminished in people who were previously obese but had lost the weight. However, it still amounted to an additional 79 calories per day.

9. Eat Slowly to Lower Your Calorie Intake:

According to the Journal of the American Dietetic Association’2008.The way you eat your food can affect how many calories you end up taking in.

According to a study, people who were instructed to eat more slowly ended up eating 67 fewer calories during a meal. They also enjoyed their meal more.

10. Lastly The Important One-Drink Water to Boost Metabolism:

According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism’2013,drinking 500 ml (17 oz) of water can boost metabolism by 24-30% over a period of 1 to 1.5 hours.

Researchers have estimated that 2 liters (68 oz) of water per day can make you burn an additional 96 calories.Not a massive amount, but every little bit adds up.

 

 

 

Train, Eat, Grow

w installments I’ve been outlining quick bodypart routines you can use when you’re pressed for time. I covered all the muscle groups, and you can find most of them incorporated into the programs on pages 56 and 58.

Notice that most of the bodypart workouts include multiple exercises, as I tried to cover the three Positions of Flexion—midrange, stretch and contracted—when possible. Sometimes, though, you may want to go even simpler and use just one key exercise. Can you really stimulate muscle growth with just one move per muscle?

The double-drop method is a spectacular mass builder because you cram a lot of work into a short amount of time. If you do three rounds, that’s nine sets; and it should take you less than 10 minutes.

If you’ve been following Mr. America Doug Brignole’s “Muscle Mastery” series [find Part 3 on page 104 of the Dec ’14 issue], you know he does it very successfully. Doug has a passion for kinesiology and physiology and has been able to whittle down his workouts to only one “best” exercise for each muscle. Let’s look at his method and a few others that you can use to blast new muscle mass quickly, with only one exercise.

Super TORQ (tension-overload repetition quantity). That’s the name I gave to Brignole’s high-rep-to-low-rep technique. Basically, his reps for each exercise look like this: 50, 40, 30, 20, 10(9)(9). He does 50 reps, rests about a minute, adds weight, then does 40 reps. He rests for another minute, adds weight and does 30 reps, and so on down to 10. On the last set he does drop sets, reducing the weight and then repping out two or three times.

Yes, it’s a lot of work—and it hurts. Just keep in mind that you’re doing only one exercise (unless you’re a complete masochist). I do use Super TORQ every so often, but I much prefer standard TORQ, in which the reps look like this: 30, 20, 15(7)(6). It’s the same principle; you just start with fewer reps on the first set—30 as opposed to 50. You still add weight on each set, but you cut the rests to 45 seconds. You also want to go to failure on each set—and don’t forget the drop sets after the last one.

The Importance of Stretching

Q: How important is stretching to a weightlifter?

A: To some extent it depends on the individual, a statement that applies to any fitness pursuit. Basically, the training protocol you implement needs be something that will accomplish your goals.

Even so, most lifters don’t have crystalline goals, or they have goals that are, frankly, misguided or extremely mediocre. With rare exceptions of those for whom the practice of mobility training is ingrained—for example, advanced yogis, dancers or gymnasts—virtually no one has sufficient mobility. The truth is, in the hierarchy of movement and training priorities, mobility is always the most important.

Now, it’s possible to set a very low bar for mobility and, once you have it, not worry too much about it. For instance, once you can comfortably do a squat, you probably don’t need to continue to mobilize to the point of doing a split. Even if you can access your desired range of motion, you should do maintenance work for flexibility every day as part of your training.

While that’s a good notion in principal, in practice it just doesn’t happen—the overwhelming majority of lifters in the gym, along with more than 95 percent of the general American population, are pathologically immobile. As a result, we can all use an aggressive mobility protocol.

To get the best results, follow a sound system of stretching. Always begin with the larger muscle groups, such as the lower back and glutes. Knees-to-chest stretches done on the floor, working both single-leg and double-leg variations will work.

Then move to your hamstrings, doing a controlled sit-and-reach movement, plus lying abdominal and hip flexor stretches. Next do groin and twisting-torso stretches, followed by arm circles, calf stretches and rotations.

On static stretches hold the farthest point for about 10 to 15 seconds. Relax for five seconds, and repeat.
