High Intensity Training
Great Workouts Contributed by Massive-man.

I have read many articles on how High Intensity Training is more of a "cult / religion" than reality. Well I can personally say that it is the most productive workout routine I have ever done in my life. I literally make gains and become stronger every workout.

Make no mistake about it. To be a coach or trainer and an educator, we must be leaders of youths, and itís to the good of our profession that we recognize that direction now in the 21st Century.

Can Hypnosis Help Build Muscles?

Hypnosis is a totally natural phenomenon that is misunderstood by the majority of the population, which knows very little about it. It has been proven to work and it is 100% natural. So the big question is, can it help bodybuilders too?

The Biology of Muscle
The Right Equipment Contributed by nemo.

In all living cells energy is temporarily packaged within a remarkable chemical compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which holds a readily available energy for very short periods of time. We may think of ATP as the energy currency of the cell. When you work to earn money, you might say that your energy is symbolically stored in the money you earn. The energy the cell requires for immediate use is temporarily stored in ATP, which is like cash. When you earn extra money, you might deposit some in the bank; similarly, a cell might deposit energy in the chemical bonds of lipids (fats), starch, or glycogen. Moreover, just as you dare not make less money than you spend, so too the cell must avoid energy bankruptcy, which would mean its death. Finally, just as you do not keep what you make very long, so too the cell continuously spends its ATP, which must be replaced immediately.

Working Out and Being Single
The Right Equipment

by Robert D. Rice

Warm Up
For the longest time the gym was thought to be the place to finally firm those lazy muscles and tend to all that flab, chores that have been put off for so long. There are countless other reasons why we venture into the uncharted waters of physical exercise. Though in recent years, the local gym is a great place to get in shape and find that special someone in the mean time. Now comes the task of deciding where to sign up, and be part of the action. Since any moron knows -- including the one writing this article -- it is where the gym resides as to one's chances of romantic success. Nice surroundings attract nice people.
