Default Tip of the week: Keeping your elbows in

<font color="red"> <font color="pink"> </font> While doing any sort of freeweight pushing or pulling exercise always try to keep your elbows in line with or closer to your body than your wrists. Doing this will limit the work your triceps and biceps need to do to keep you stabilized allowing you to generate more force. If your elbows flare out you are missing out on some serious gains! </font>

"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane

"Sacrifice: To give up, destroy, renounce, and surrender your ego, excuses, bad habits, fears, and your couch - in the belief of an ideal or pursuit of a worthy goal."

"All thing are possible to him who believes." -Mark 9:23
