Save Time in the Gym

Don't worry about specific rest periods between sets.
Instead, rest as you need it—less in your early sets when
your muscles are fresh, and more as they become fatigued.
You'll cut your workout time between 15 and 20 percent.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!

Eat Meat and Grow

Eat meat—4 to 8 ounces every day—to grow more muscle.
A study reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
compared two groups of older male weight lifters: One group ate
meat, the other didn't. Both groups grew stronger, but only the
carnivores gained significant muscle. Chicken, turkey, and fish count, too.


I personally have been doing some research on this. My conclusion, you need to eat some meat to gain muscle. Animal meat is the only way to get ALL the 9 essential amino acids. Below is one source:

    Yes, I agree. The author of that article does state, "the amounts in these plant foods is often less than ideal, particularly the branch chain amino acids."

I'm not disagreeing, just pointing out some information emoticon

    Hate to disagree with you but I've been vegan for 5 years and have no problem maintaining and gaining muscle. I'm not a bodybuilder but then again who is? you don't NEED animal protein to gain muscle. Robert Cheek is a vegan bodybuilder so it is actually possible.

Dress Better

Buy only workout clothes that are black, white, or gray.
They'll go with everything, and you'll never again waste
time looking for a T-shirt that matches your gold-and-purple
Lakers shorts.

OK, I admit, this was a wimpy blog....... LOL

Repair Muscle Faster

Recover faster from a hard workout by lightly exercising the same
muscles the following day. Use a light weight—about 20 percent
of the weight you can lift one time—and do two sets of 25 repetitions.
This will deliver more blood and nutrients into your muscles so they repair faster.

This is the first time I have heard of this. If anyone else has heard this and if it is true, please let me know emoticon

Improve Quickness

For faster foot speed in sports, try this move: Start with your feet hip-width
apart and your hands at your sides. Lift your left foot in front of you, touch
it with your right hand, and lower it to the floor. Lift your right foot, touch it
with your left hand, and lower it. Then touch your left foot behind you with
your right hand, then your right foot behind you with your left hand. Go for
20 seconds at a time, moving as fast as you can, and repeat for a total of three to five sets.
