We all want to have bigger arms. Lets face it, we want muscles that are bulging out of our shirts. We want our muscles to look massive from the side, back and head on like Sergio Olivia (professional bodybuilder in the featured image). The problem we run into is that is seems to take so long to get them that way. You might typically work on your chest, triceps, and legs on one day and do the back, biceps, shoulders, and abs on another. This is a great routine to keep following for overall strength and to constantly engage each muscle group every other day. The problem with this when trying to get bigger arms… if you add more workouts to concentrate on your arms, your body is already tired and you wont be able to work them out like you should.

Lets face it… You want that polished look for your abs but it seems to be the hardest thing to develop. You have been doing tons of sit-ups and side bends and aren’t seeing the results. You are determined, I will give you that.

When trying to change the fat to muscle ratio it doesn’t happen at a concentrated point rather than a proportionally. What this means is that you will lose little bits of fat from your legs, butt, back, arms, neck, and stomach proportionally. If that doesn’t make sense think of it this way, when was the last time you saw someone that had a flat stomach but the rest of their body was flabby, not thick as in muscle strength but flabby. When you see weight loss you see your entire image of a person shrinking inwards. If you are already fit and are developing your abs, surprise surprise, its the same way. The only difference is that you are toning the rest of your body while you are doing your abs by burning more fat all over. Once the heavy pockets of fat are burned off your abs, the muscles will then start to become visible. Continue reading “Running To Better Abs”

The DASH was first developed to fight high blood pressure, not as an all-purpose diet. But it certainly looked like an all-star to our panel of experts, who gave it high marks for its nutritional completeness, safety, ability to prevent or control diabetes, and role in supporting heart health.
