Proper Form of the Triceps Kickbacks:do...

youtube user sixpackshortcuts suspended

I applaud YouTube and their recent decision to suspend the user sixpackshortcuts. The reason given by YouTube on his page is: "This account has been suspended due to a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams and commercially deceptive content"On his facebook page, he indicates that he has no idea why YouTube suspended their account. Well, here are a few possibilities why his account was suspended/removed. Its titles like his latest hit video: "Lose 30 lbs in 30 days".

Remove your weights, or else!

Love this sign I found on a leg press machine in a gym I visited today! Its clear and concise. The only thing more annoying to a serious bodybuilder walking up to a machine and finding a dozen nickels and dimes on it is for a 70 year old man to walk up to the same machine and find it still loaded with 100 pound plates. Fair is fair, everybody leave it stripped when you are done.

Many people seem to put certified personal trainers on a pedestal and I'm about to find out if its justified or not by doing it myself. The cynical part of me thinks its just a bunch of useless memorization of muscle names and bone names. My cynicism has probably been caused by a few bad apples who hold up their certification card like a police department badge every time they get in an argument and cant think of any...

How To Get a V Taper

The "V" taper refers to the shape the torso takes when someone is in great physical shape. The torso forms the shape of the letter "V" with broad shoulders and lats down to a narrow waist. One of the first goals of new bodybuilders is often to get that V taper of the torso.The thing that people don't realize about the V taper is that is all about proportions. If you make your waist smaller, your shoulders will look much more broad and muscular and your lats will appear much wider. If you have narrow hips, its a lot easier...
