Challenging Hamstring and Butt Exercise

If you’ve been looking to spice up your leg workout you’re in luck. Today I have a challenging hamstring and butt exercise that is somewhat unconventional. Very few people take advantage of this exceptional exercise and I hope that this post will change that.

When you think about training your hamstrings, the most common exercises that come to mind are Stiff Leg Deadlifts and Leg Curls. I’ve been hooked on the T-Bar Stiff Leg Deadlift for the past few months ever since my buddy Tom Venuto introduced them to me. I get an amazing stretch and contraction with that hamstring exercise. I’ll be sure to record a video of the T-Bar Stiff Leg Deadlift soon. The regular Deadlift also makes for one heck of a glute and hamstring exercise.

When I asked the members of Tom’s Burn The Fat Inner Circle if they had any alternative exercises that really blast the hammies and glutes I was surprised to hear Tom suggest Glute-Ham Raises. I was even more surprised when Tom mentioned that Glute-Ham Raises are not only difficult, but you can expect 3x the muscle soreness afterward.

Spicy Quinoa Recipe

Spicy Quinoa

Angie and I have been experimenting with a variety of quinoa recipes lately and absolutely loving it! It’s a great alternative to brown or basmati rice and oats, which are staples in my diet. One of the big benefits is that it’s gluten free, which is great for our fellow Fat Loss Quickie friends who have an intolerance or allergy to gluten.

Here are the ingredients in this recipe that Angie created recently:
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves
2 Tsp crushed chillies
1 Tsp cumin
1 Tsp black pepper
1 Tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup cilantro

Directions:

Soak quinoa for 3-5 minutes, then rinse.

Bring quinoa, vegetable broth, crushed chillies, cumin, and black pepper to a boil. Then simmer for 30 minutes.

While the quinoa is simmering, fry up the onion and garlic in a little bit of olive oil.

After 30 minutes, add the onion-garlic mix, the corn, and cilantro to the quinoa and let simmer for 5 minutes.

That’s it… Enjoy!

Of course, you don’t need to add the corn and you can cook it in water instead of vegetable broth if you wish.

A Synergistic Approach To Fat Loss

At first glance this may sound like simplistic common knowledge, but I assure you that there is more to it than meets the eye. For some reason the concept of a synergistic approach hit me hard during my workout today. During the past six months I have witnessed changes in my physique that greatly exceed any other transformation that I’ve gone through. The reason for this amazing transformation is not just because I set a BIG goal to achieve by a specific date. It’s not just because I surround myself with like-minded supportive people who are striving for greatness. It’s not just because I’ve been following a killer workout program designed to gain muscle and lose fat. It’s not just because I’m following a killer diet plan that is designed to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. It’s not just because I’ve been walking for 30-45 minutes daily. It’s not just because I’m getting a great sleep every night…

…The reason for the amazing results that I’ve been experiencing is because I have been incorporating all of the above into my daily life. Everything is working in synergy.

Will You Look Better On You Next Birthday?

Will you look better on your next birthday? Will you be leaner? Will you have more muscle? Will your physique be more symmetrical? Will you improve upon your weaker points? I’d love to hear your thoughts and how you see yourself improving between today and your next birthday.

The inspiration for this post came from one of my greatest role models, Tom Venuto, author of Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program, and creator of the Burn The Fat Inner Circle. It was his birthday and Tom had posted a great message on the Burn The Fat Facebook Fan Page…

“What if you set a goal to hit a personal record (PR) on your birthday workout, for every b-day, for as long as you live?

Powerful Tips, Tricks and Techniques For Building Larger, Firmer, Rounder Glutes

Do You Prefer To Train With A Partner Or Alone?

It would mean a great deal to me if you could take a brief moment to share whether you prefer to workout with a training partner or workout by yourself. I’d also love to know why you prefer one over the other.

I personally haven’t worked out with a training partner for quite a while now. I have found that it helped me get in the zone and block out all distractions. I could just pop in the headphones, crank the music and hone in on my mind-muscle connection.

Well, I had a HUGE eye opener yesterday. For the first time in ages I worked out with a great friend of mine and it took my workout to an entirely new level. I pushed well beyond what I thought were my limits and now realize that I am capable of much more than I previously thought.

The Truth About EPOC and 9 Times Faster Fat Loss

There’s no doubt that you’ve come across hyped-up claims from fitness marketers telling you that their workout program will melt fat 9 times faster and will have you burning massive amounts of calories for 48 hours after your workout, which they refer to as the “Afterburn”, or in scientific terms EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). These so-called “fat loss guru’s” are passing this information off as fact, and in a very clever and convincing way to the general public. Unfortunately, if you have bought into their claims, you have been mislead and I’m about to show you how.

Preface

You will often times hear the “Afterburn” claims from programs that involve HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), regular Interval Training, and most recently Metabolic Resistance Training. I want to make it absolutely clear that I am not against these types of training. I have personally incorporated them into my training for nearly a decade.

What I am against is the false, EXAGGERATED claims and misuse of cherry picked data in order to get you to buy into a certain program. Frankly, I feel that there are many fitness professionals whom would benefit a great deal from taking a business ethics 101 course.

The purpose of this post is to set aside the hype and uncover the truth, so you can make an informed decision about the next workout program that you choose to follow.

Exaggerated Claims Based On Flawed Research

According to some cleverly marketed workout programs, you’ll be burning hundreds of calories post-workout all thanks to the afterburn of their high intensity workout. The truth is,
