Push Ups For Building Muscle

Push Ups For Building Muscle

Workouts
Push ups for building muscle Push ups are probably the most widely recognized exercise and the first exercise we ever learned in physical education class as young kids at school. It could be for that reason push up are considered Childs play and not taken seriously as a muscle building tool but in my opinion the humble push up gets massively underutilized. We all crave that bigger chest and T shirt hugging arms but most think that this look is only exclusive to our bench pressing brothers and sisters. Well I'm here to tell that is not the case, and that with push ups alone, you CAN build a bigger chest and arms. Push ups are the exercise that I use the most and have been doing them as far back as…

Pull Ups (The Best Upper Body Workout)

Pull Ups (The Best Upper Body Workout)

Workouts
                  Pull Ups (The Best Upper Body Workout) If I had to choose only one exercise that I could do for the rest of my life , it would be without a doubt the pull-up. Pull-ups are the first exercise I ever did, way before I ever stepped into a gym or new anything about physical fitness. I would hang from every bar I could get my hands on which slowly turned into being able to performing pull ups for reps. It's been a staple in my workouts since then and because of that reason I've always been good at them. At my peak I've managed 31 decent form pull-ups in one go. I know that's 1002 reps less than the world…

Should I Take Protein Powder?

Should I Take Protein Powder?

Should I Take Protein Powder?     Dunno ……………………………..           Ok......I jest, but that is kind of the answer   Let's explore though the question of do I need to take protein ?  further. Before I do that, I'm gonna humiliate myself with a couple of stories of my first foray into protein supplements when I was asking that very same question. For many years, I stopped lifting weights because stupidly I thought they would slow me down in my martial arts training and those milliseconds would mean landing that killer blow or not. Once I saw through the propaganda passed down by the lazy Kung fu masters I decided to hit the weights hard. This time round though I was also hit with the explosion of all these…

Introduction to kettlebells(and why you should use them )

Introduction to kettlebells(and why you should use them )

Workouts
What are kettlebells?       Have you ever wondered what those cannon ball looking things with handles are, taking pride of place next to the good old dumbbell rack? I'm sure by now you’re fully aware that they are called kettlebells but have probably been too intimidated by this new funky looking weight, to walk over to test it out. Well new they certainly are not, and just like your gentle giant friend who at a distance initially looked very intimidating, you will quickly learn that under that steely hard exterior lies one of your best allies. It might seem like kettlebells have been the latest fitness fad invented to convince every gullible fitness freak to part with their cash. In fact, kettlebells have been around from time immemorial…

Does HIIT increase Testosterone and HGH?

Does HIIT increase Testosterone and HGH?

Health and Welness, Workouts
Does HIIT Increase Testosterone and HGH?   The question of ' Does HIIT increase testosterone and hgh' wasn't one that I ever bothered to ponder in my younger years. Anyone reading this in their late teens and twenties is hopefully taking advantage of their finely tuned machines running on a potent mixture of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and  testosterone fulled nitrous injection. For anyone like me approaching forty years of age and onwards though, it feels like we are being drip fed the stuff through misfiring carburetors.  I could attempt to bring back my youth by going on a HGH or Testosterone cycle which would involve injecting needles in my jacksy but: Its expensive. Injecting myself doesn't sound like a good time. I would constantly be worried about the long list…

Time Restricted Eating benefits

Time Restricted Eating benefits

Health and Welness, Nutrition
Time Restricted Eating   I'm going to be honest with you.   I'm a bit of a pig.   I love food. I mean I really love food. Good food, bad food any food. Before I found out about time restricted eating I would eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. The only reason I haven't ended up the size of Maui from Moana is the fact that I'm ultra health conscious and I enjoy working out. This has always stopped me from contributing another percentile in the obesity epidemic that grips modern day society. No matter how much I tried to stick to the latest diet that guaranteed me the elusive 6 pack I always wanted, my craving for my late night naughty snack would always win the battle.…

Quick Home Workouts And Quick Results

Quick Home Workouts And Quick Results

Workouts
Why Quickness Fitness?   Well it sound quite catchy (If I don't say so myself).   But more importantly, it represents my ethos when it comes to working out.   Quick home workouts and quick results.   I've been that guy who 3 times a week would spent 2 hours in the gym lifting the heaviest thing I could get my callus filled hands on. Then another half hour sitting around drinking my protein shake trying my hardest to hit that magic number of 200 grams of protein to get them gainz. But ultimately, I was wasting my energy and time because looking at my bloated stomach, you would never think I was a gym rat. As I experimented more with short intense workouts at home , I started to…
