Due to the overabundance of food today, the typical diet is loaded with calories -causing an epidemic rise in obesity and other associated diseases. As a result, there have been many diets throughout the years attempting to reduce body fat and promote health. Interestingly, a relatively new weight-loss approach involving intermittent fasting has been growing in popularity.
The bench press is one of the most popular exercises for developing upper body strength and power. Improving upper body strength and power can drastically elevate athletic performance while also generating tremendous muscle growth. Over the years, the research on bench press strength training has steadily developed to the point where specific protocols for optimal strength and size have been elucidated. Typically these methods incorporate the use of heavy weights to boost intensity and induce greater muscle cell activity, ultimately supporting greater size and strength.

Vitamin C has antioxidant properties that mitigate the many negative effects associated with oxidative damage to biomolecules such as DNA within the human body.1 Vitamin D is somewhat different. Like other vitamins, it promotes overall health— but it also plays an active role in promoting muscle growth and strength.
There are three BCAAs found in the body: leucine, isoleucine and valine. Supplementation with BCAAs is widespread, mainly because of the apparent ability of BCAAs to increase muscle growth. The trouble is that all three BCAAs do not promote muscle growth equally. In fact, leucine is by far the most potent stimulator of muscle growth, while isoleucine and valine come in a very distant second and third place, respectively.
Looking to switch things up and keep growing for your next workout? Resistance bands provide a unique form of resistance that puts considerable stress on muscle tissue, causing considerable gains in muscle mass and strength that is comparable to free weights.
The squat is the best leg-developing exercise because of its remarkable capacity to simultaneously activate most of the major muscle groups within the lower body, generating tremendous muscle growth and strength. While all of the muscle-building capabilities from squatting are fantastic, there has been some uncertainty about what training protocol elicits maximum strength gains while performing the squat.
The use of variable resistance while weight training normally includes the use of elastic bands or chains. Attachment of elastic bands, or chains, to the barbell alters the resistance of the movement through the entire range of motion, while standard free weights provide a constant resistance throughout the entire lift.
The lack of attention to rest interval length can inhibit progress in the weight room by negatively influencing anabolic hormone levels or exercise intensity during your workout. While several lines of scientific evidence clearly show that specific rest period duration optimally complements certain intensity levels, more recent studies have shown that shortening the rest period between sets regardless of intensity level may enhance muscular adaptation to resistance exercise.
