Music has the ability to change your heartbeat based on the bass and other rhythms, which is why clubs playing loud bass music get the crowd excited. Screaming or yelling has been shown to increase strength up to 7% too - https://www.menshealth.com/fitness/a19533055/the-sound-that-will-make-you-7-percent-stronger/. So I'm assuming the rapid heartbeat from ...

The short answer is yes. We think calorie timing affects muscle vs fat gain. But the questions of how much it affects it is more important. Mike Israetel mentions that for most of us the amount of calories is much more important,for us hobby builders. In contradiction this study (3:20) suggested fasted cardio is not really beneficial. My personal ...

Obviously, you should make sure you're warmed up before attempting any of these. Answer 1: I can do you one better, I'll give you full body training in 4 minutes! Enter, the tabata protocol (thank me later). Honestly, Dan John does a much better job of explaining it than I can. I believe he now only recommends front squats, so I'll use that as an example (...

In this pandemic-based home workout era, anything goes for me. Yesterday, I did incline dumbbell chest press while sitting in my office chair with it reclined. This was my more successful attempt. Previously, I was sitting on the floor against a couch with a small pillow behind my back. So far, I've found that I like decline pushup more. I've got a lot more ...

This might be an unsatisfying answer, but the need for specialized equipment is one reason that I don't worry about incline exercises and instead focus on overhead presses and horizontal presses like push-ups or floor and bench press.

Of course training at higher rep ranges is useful to some degree for developing strength. Everyone agrees that it's important to build muscle and to have at least some base level of muscular endurance, even if only to be able to do a sufficient number of low-rep sets in training. Even weightlifters and powerlifters, who train exclusively for the goal of ...

I would suggest that it's not heavy metal per se that lead to an increase in strength, but more the focus increase brought from listening to music that resonates with you personally. For me, though I do regularly listen to rock and heavy metal, I've actually found that I lift better to something along more classical or piano lines (which I also listen to ...

Music can alter your state. If you know the polyvagal theory, you might know that they state that humans have several "state" e.g. flight, flight, freeze. Music seems to be able to alter or reinforce the state you are in. Metal music probably pushes you toward the fight state which can elicit a greater buy-in into your training i.e. greater force production....

Yes, but not in the way you're thinking. If you look at something like powerlifting, then carrying additional pounds can be a benefit as they provide either a counterbalance to the weight being lifted (deadlift or squat), or act to shorten the range of motion of the lift (bench press). There are also strongman events where being on the larger side can be a ...

As mentioned in the comments, landmines exercises are about as safe as anything. Having said that, there are some precautions worth taking if you're concerned: Make sure your base is secure. If you're using a plate post, make sure it's heavy enough, and doesn't slide. Bumper plates are great, as they stick to the floor to prevent sliding (got that tip ...
