Tired all the time – The 400 pound bench press – Behind-the-neck press? – Prison muscle – Fish fan? – Fair game!

By Iron Vic Steele Good morning, I successfully lost 16-pounds over the summer. I basically trained every day either lifting or performing some form of cardio exercise. My eating was extreme. I basically ate some protein and a salad once a day. For 2.5 months this worked great and I lost weight every week. Then [...]

Mass time! – Reawakening dormant muscle memory – Bodybuilding greatness – Box squats – Building the metabolism – Weak chest remedy

By Iron Vic Steele Hello, Now that summer is over, I want to shift from leaning out to adding some muscle. I had an excellent spring/summer, losing 21-pounds, mainly from (finally!) getting super serious about a Parrillo multiple-meal eating schedule. I would consume a meal or supplement meal every three waking hours. I hit a [...]

The ideal supplement meal – Never enough training time – The mythical Arnold press – Save the muscle – Chocolate Fix™ – Assimilation myths – Dumbbell newbie

By Iron Vic Steele Hello, I read about ‘supplement meals,’ could you give an example? I work a job where eating more than lunch is a problem. I am thinking that a mid-morning and mid-afternoon supplement meal might be the way to get in the quality calories I need. Is there any strategy where you [...]

Fire those antagonistic muscles! – CapTri®, MCTs and body fat – BodyStat possibilities – High school strength benchmarks – Desert cardio – Bottom-heavy? try fasted cardio

By Iron Vic Steele Greetings! Is it better to use a fast or slow rep speed? I read about explosive reps and reps that are purposefully slowed down. I just kinda push and pull without really thinking about it. I suppose I used a “normal” rep speed. Should I be speeding up or slowing down [...]

No energy during cardio – Lateral raise questions – Ban the decline – Alternate cardio modes – Tyson power replication – Warming up madness

By Iron Vic Steele Greetings Sir! I have been having a problem ‘power through’ cardio. I start off strong but fade within 15 minutes. From then till the end of the aerobic session I am dragging myself across the finish line. It was not too long ago when I could power all the way through [...]

By Iron Vic Steele Howdy, I am a pretty good female bodybuilder up here in Montana. I am 50 and have been competing off and on for 20 years (more off than on, recently.) I am naturally lean and wiry. Being overweight has never been an issue. For me, the battle has always been adding [...]

Training partners – Back after sickness – Triceps exercise ranking order – Recovery accelerator – What is the best trap exercise?

By Iron Vic Steele Greetings! I was recently asked to join a training group of four guys. They asked if I wanted to become one of their training partners. These guys get together three times a week to train at the local Gold’s Gym. I would classify them as intermediate level bodybuilders. They don’t compete [...]

10 sets of 10, old school plateau buster – Men’s divisions and Fabio – Purposeful partials – Injuries and specialization – Dinky exercises – Weak hamstrings

By Iron Vic Steele Vic, I was reading about how a “plateau-buster” widely used by guys in the 1990s: after a few warm-up sets, they would perform 10 sets of 10 reps with a static weight. Gruesome! That sounds so horrible that I am tempted to try it. I am a bit of sadist in [...]

Stagnant shoulders – BCAAs and recovery – The Oak vs. The Myth – Social media madness invades the gym – Soft Chew™ and sugar addiction

By Iron Vic Steele Greetings! I need to build some shoulders. I have narrow clavicles and wide hips. As you probably have guessed I am bottom-heavy with big thighs and calves. While my chest, arms and back have really grown and strengthened, using the Parrillo approach, I could really use some shoulder width. Currently I [...]
