For Women: Exercises To Get Rid Of Love Handles

In my opinion the top exercises to get rid of love handles are isometric movements. These are exercises done in a static state where the muscles never change in length or angle. For example, crunches are not isometric since your ab muscles are constantly moving up and down in a crunching movement.

The reasons I suggest doing only isometric movements is because exercises like weighted crunches add too much muscle to your obliques which can give your abs a somewhat bulky look.

This is bad if you want to build a sexy body.

Counting Calories – Not As Simple As You Think

counting calories overestimate

So… why the hell am I writing an article on counting calories. Shouldn’t counting calories be as easy as 1+1?

Well I wish it were that easy, but unfortunately we live in world full of errors and miscalculations.

I talked about nutrition labels and how they are of great convenience to us here, but the problem with nutrition labels is that they are all standardized and set in stone.

Counting calories

Nutrition labels can be decieving

This is something that doesn’t get talked about a lot, but when scientists measure the calories in food, they simply measure the calories, and slap whatever amount they get onto EVERY SINGLE  nutrition label in the world.

Sylvester Stallone Workout – Everything You Need To Know

Sylvester Stallone Workout Routine

Although Sylvester Stallone may be old enough to be my grandpa, but he’s still one of the most badass action stars in Hollywood. Even though the man is 65 years old, he can still kick as much ass as the next pretty boy Hollywood star, and that point was proven in 2010’s The Expendables.

But how did Sylevester Stallone keep in such great shape over the past 40+ years? Let’s take a look, shall we.

The Sylvester Stallone workout

For Rocky 3

For Rocky 3, Stallone performed one of the most grueling workout routines known to man. I mean, Stallone even admitted a couple years ago that the routine was stupid and unnecessary. For his Rocky 3 workout, Stallone would do the following every single day:

  • 20 rounds of sparring in the ring
  • 2 hours of weight lifting
  • 2 miles of jogging
  • lots of jump roping

Though the workout was intense and pretty ridiculous, Stallone arguably displayed his best physique in Rocky 3.

Detox And Juicing Diets: The Biggest Scam In The Fitness Industry

detox juicing diets scam

Alright so that’s 2 carrots, 1 head of broccoli, 10 grapes, a couple slices of ginger, and some celery.

I gotta be honest, just writing that first sentence was painful, but there are still millions of people out there who actually believe that putting all those ingredients in a blender and drinking it will actually “cleanse” and “detox” their body.

Why do people do these cleansing and detox diets?

Because there is an incredible marketing/advertising force behind these diets. From the Master Cleanse to Natalia Rose and her crazy diets, these companies and people will do anything to convince you that detoxifying your body is the greatest thing in the world.

The Tom Hardy Workout Routine For Warrior

Tom Hardy has just recently made a name for himself in Hollywood, with roles in Inception, Warrior, and the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. I have a feeling he’s going to be the next big Hollywood star.

Though it was just released this past weekend, Warrior is already garnering a ton of attention not only because it’s an awesome movie, but also because of Tom Hardy’s ripped MMA body. Hardy reportedbly put on 28 pounds of hard muscle for his role and it definitely shows.

But how exactly did Tom Hardy transform his body into a MMA fighter in Warrior?

The Ab Wheel: The Greatest Forgotten Piece of Workout Equipment

Alright, I know the ab wheel is old school. I know it isn’t as sexy looking as those shiny ab crunching machines. And I know it looks weird as hell. But if I was stranded on an island and could only choose 1 piece of equipment to workout my abs, I would definitely take the ab wheel.

Now, I’m sure that many of you have heard of the ab wheel, but sadly most people don’t use it.

I don’t know why everyone stopped using the ab wheel. I remember that only about 10 years ago, everyone was using it, but it just stopped, like paying for porn.
