Shawn Rhoden | Mr. Olympia 2016

For those who do not know Shawn Rhoden had a very difficult road to get to where it is now.

He was very successful bodybuilder was still an amateur unfortunately, when his father died he getting drunk, went into rehab for alcohol and finally again returned to bodybuilding and finally became a professional bodybuilder.

Right away, in his first or second year made great things, won a couple of competitions, Arnold Classic, was in the top 5, top 3 Mr. Olympia and indeed is regarded as one of the candidates who can win the title of Mr. Olympia 2016.

Last year he had this problem that was his belly bulging, probably because of the large quantities of food. Due to digestion, which is not good at this stage of definition. His body was all kept, nothing went out. That is why it is so aesthetically ugly it looked.

Is he someone who can win the Mr. Olympia 2016, of course. He’s not someone who deals with a lot of social networks, not too sociable, not the kind of guy you can sit down and talk kidding with him. But he was again very charismatic, charming and certainly one of the best bodybuilders of today.

Also Shawn Rhoden is a bodybuilder who has a minimum of pounds on stage, especially in the Mr. Olympia. But simply have great, beautiful, round muscles. When you see him on stage, he looks great.

Kai Greene had one time 15kg more than him, but when Shawn Rhoden fit next to him does not look anything less. Therefore, we say that is important that the visual effect that you get when you are on stage.

Shawn Rhoden has a beautiful classic lines of muscles, perfect pose and we see no reason why he would not be a candidate who can win mr. olympia 2016.

Training once a week: Science confirmed Mike Mentzer’s method

Training once a week: Science confirmed Mike Mentzer’s method

The legendary Mike Mentzer, one of bodybuilding icon whose methodology training for decades attracted enormous public attention and which was the subject of endless debate. This giant is, in fact, found that almost all bodybuilders have a problem with overtraining, but during the week practicing far less time, while also winning some of the biggest prizes in the sport.
The man who is the first in history had won a competition with the maximum number of points, which in 1978 won the title of Mr. Universe and win the heavyweight Mr. Olympia.

Mentzer’s approach to training is quickly made him even more popular, and has gained thousands of followers to years later their number substantially reduced, because of its drastic reduction of muscle mass, and especially after he left this world too early, in the 49th year life.

His training was brutal, maximum intensity, in which each repetition performed slowly and completely correct. The exercises were performed to the limit, and it is considered that for achieving maximum stimulation of each muscle group separately, it is ideal to exercise 20 to 30 minutes. After such training he rested four days, however, or even up to 7 days to the next.

Although his approach lost a lot of popularity, now the last scientific study has proved that he was right.

Scientific research that included 70 healthy adults, which were then divided into two age groups, clarified is what this is all about.

In the first group were persons aged 20-35 years, while in the second the elderly from 60 to 75 years. During the first phase of the research, which lasted 16 weeks, both groups had three endurance training per week. After that, divided into three groups. The participants of the first group were totally stopped exercising, others have reduced the number of weekly training from three to one, while the third group of participants also reduce the number of training from three to one, but at the same time reduce the number of sets for each muscle group from three to one.

The results showed that the legendary Mentzer found a good approach. In other words, a group of older exercisers, no one has managed to maintain the same muscle mass than before reducing the number of training from three to one, with younger trainees was completely different situation. Both groups whose participants reduce the number of training from 3 to 1, and the number of sets of 3 to 1, the survey are completed with the same outcome, that muscle mass was held still.

However, the measurements after the completion of the entire process of research there was one key difference – with members of the group of young trainees who have reduced the number of weekly training, but who at the same time maintain a complete range of training and have not reduced the number of series, recorded an increase in muscle mass!

It was also the best answer to the question whether the methods Mike Mentzer really has an effect.

Mr. Olympia 2016 | Who could be the winner?

This will definitely be one of the most interesting Mr. Olympia until now because, definitely everyone in the top eight is a candidate to win. It’s not just Phil Heath, it’s not just the Big Ramy, Shawn Rhoden, Dexter Jackson, Roelly Winklaar, Dallas McCarver, Cedric McMillan, there is still a couple of names that are not as well known but who can very much to do.

We shall all remember this Mr. Olympia for the return of Kevin Levrone, definitely one of the best competitors in history. It will be interesting to see the clash of the 90s and new bodybuilders. Definitely this is a good move that will attract older viewers as well as some new ones.

Phil Heath which is unbeatable the last couple of years is definitely the biggest than ever, but it does not mean that he is the best. For the last 3 years he was unfortunately getting worse and worse in the eyes of critics. Last year, he had the worst form, according to many Dexter Jackson was supposed to be the first with which we agree. Every year he comes bigger and not better.

This year will be interesting to see what will happen. On stage we will only see the real visual effect of muscle and body, and when they pose. For example, because Shawn Rhoden, who is one of the smallest competitors on stage looks larger than some that have more pounds than he.

Arnold Schwarzenegger recommends consuming less meat

Arnold Schwarzenegger recommends consuming less meat

Although it sounds paradoxical that the seven-time Mr. Olympia advised others that they throw the meat out of their diet, the great Arnold Schwarzenegger certainly knows what he’s talking about, and his advice is the product of the best intentions, and it is about people’s health.

As a politician, Schwarzenegger has earned the most votes advocating turning to renewable energy sources, encouraging people to start thinking about the environment and their own health. His advice on changes in diet, focused primarily on human health, because, as he himself says, scientific studies have clearly implicated in the increased consumption of meat:

– Accelerated aging process

– Curing blood vessels

– Chronic inflammation

– Risk of cancer

– Risk of Diabetes

How then enter proteins?

Athletes, as it was Schwarzenegger directly would be degraded to such a change because they are concerned proteins. However, it is important to know that there are very good alternative sources of macronutrients that responsible for the construction and recovery of muscle fibers.

Among the recommended food rich in proteins are:

– Nuts

– Seeds

– Peanut butter

– Buckwheat

– Oats

– Millet

– Rice

– Lens

– Beans

– Cereals

What do girls think about guys who skip leg day


Widespread shoulders, strong arms, flat stomach with a “chiseled” muscles, it really are the most attractive attributes for which the ladies sigh.

If the legs remained undeveloped, and the upper half of the body perfect, just one look at the “chicken legs” casts a shadow on all done and the whole body shape unfortunately becomes ridiculous.

Clearly, they said, the girls examined by the editors Spotmebro magazine, after they were shown photos of semi-developed young men who apparently skipped day of training legs.
