Winter is still in full force right now for most of the USA as I write this. Being in the Boston area, I know this all too well as we have had over 7 feet of snow in a span of less than three weeks, setting records and giving us all a lot more work cleaning it up than we counted... [Read more...]

Balance In BODYBUILDING Too much of a good thing is bad – balanced application is critical for success
By Andre Newcomb In the end, elite bodybuilding is all about having the right game plan, then executing that game plan with discipline, application and balance. The lesson of balance is perhaps the toughest of all bodybuilding lessons to learn. We all have our likes and dislikes,... [Read more...]
Winter is still in full force right now for most of the USA as I write this. Being in the Boston area, I know this all too well as we have had over 7 feet of snow in a span of less than three weeks, setting records and giving us all a lot more work cleaning it up than we counted on. But despite all the blizzards and arctic temperatures, winter won’t be here for a whole lot longer. Spring is literally right around the corner. Bodybuilders being slaves to the seasons that we often are, most of us will soon shift away from off-season bulking goals into a cutting phase where we clean up our diets and gradually increase our cardio. That way, we melt off the winter fluff so we can wear tank tops and shorts in the warmer weather without looking like sausages.

Your body needs certain special fats just like it needs vitamins and minerals. These special fats are called Essential Fatty Acids. People who diet hard and long and try and go fat-free often suffer nasty side effects from EFA deficiency: itchy, peeling skin; hair loss; stiff and sore joints and short-term

In Parrillo world, logic and experience are melded with practicality and science. The end result is a system of bodybuilding that obtains factual, actual results for anyone and everyone that has the guts, determination and fortitude to implement the Parrillo Principles – in total. The same Parrillo Principles an elite competitive bodybuilder uses can and should be used by regular people, people with zero competitive bodybuilding aspirations. As John once famously phrased it, “Why would a normal individual train or eat differently than a successful pro bodybuilder? The pro bodybuilder uses certain modes and methods because these methods work – the regular person intent on achieving a better body needs to use these proven effective methods, but without the severity and degree of intensity a pro bodybuilder brings to bear. We all need to eat right, train hard, supplement with purpose and adhere to the overall strategy.” Amen to that clear thinking. Here are ten tips that will help you improve your physique regardless if you are elite or obese…

Why you need 50/50 Plus™…Differentiating fat types… The demise of forearm work…Soft Chew™ fiber facts… Does limited training equate to limited results?
Why do I need to take 50/50 Plus™ after a workout? What is the science behind this? I train often and weight train three times a week. I perform some type of aerobics nearly every day. I used to be a competitive cyclist and I still have a lean physique. Do I really need to purchase and use a nutritional supplement after every training session? This sounds like an expensive hassle and I seem to be doing pretty good without it – plus, if I want to stay lean (which I am) why would I want to take in a bunch of calories after I just finished working hard to burn off calories?
