The Difference Between Split and Full-body Routines

By Nick | December 27, 2013

Everyone bickers back and forth in the debate between the superior form of exercise, and I am going to clear it up once and for all in this post. I find that fitness isn’t a matter of the style you lift, the place you exercise in, nor the weight you use; it’s a mentality. Any…

Biceps and Triceps Workout

By Nick | December 27, 2013

A quick workout- but it’s as tough as you make it. Turn up the intensity and really push yourself for those last reps, and you’ll get a fantastic pump. Just because there are less sets, doesn’t mean it’s less of a workout.   Exercise Rep Range 1. Twisting Curls* 3 sets 8, 10, 6 2.…

By Nick | December 27, 2013

This is a version of an at-home bootcamp, for all those who don’t have a gym to call home. However, you can still do this Calisthenics at the gym, or even if you’re on vacation/business trip and you don’t want to lose all that progress you’ve made. Enjoy! This workout can be done 3-4 times a…

Extension and Contraction Split Training

By Nick | December 27, 2013

Not entirely a full body workout, and not entirely a split routine. It’s a split between the muscles that are extending and contracting… so, it’s like a half-body workout? Ready to start training? Anyway, this is for people who are trying to maintain AND make gains in muscular strength, it just depends on how hard…

Endurance Training

By Nick | December 23, 2013

This is a rough cardio workout, and is meant to challenge you- so, rise to the occasion! You’ll have to dig deep to get through it, and it’ll be hard to humble yourself  afterward. 1. 20 minutes of interval training on the treadmill set the incline at 1.0-2.0 run at each of these speeds for…

Bring Your AED

By Nick | December 23, 2013

Hope you brought your inhalers, because this full-body routine relies on cardio, muscular endurance, and a lot of motivation. Something to note- drop sets. If you can, view this video; it’s only a few second. If you cannot, I’ve done my best to explain them. Good luck viewers, good luck. -30 pull ups preferably on…

Larger Than Life

By Nick | December 2, 2013

For all of my power thirsty, D-Cup readers out there- here is your new workout. It’s a split routine, so you decide how to grow. My suggestion is grouping antagonistic routines so you can hit them twice in a week; which is how I outlined the routine: Chest and Back Mondays and Fridays Warm- up…

Completing the Circuit

By Nick | December 2, 2013

I am personally a big fan of circuit training; it functions as a way to improve your overall conditioning, and not strength in specific areas (I’ve also written an article comparing the full body vs. split routines, check it out!). This is one of many to come!   Weight Training- Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday Warm-up: 2…

Stretch. Seriously.

By Nick | November 30, 2013

The importance of stretching is constantly overlooked. Many people feel that its primary, or even only use, is as a precursor to ‘actual’ physical activity; and that assumption could not be further from the truth. Stretching is a tool that is much more versatile and beneficial than nearly any other calisthenic, plyometric, or weight training regimen.…
