ATHLEAN-X 90 Day Program: *******athleanx****/x/tricepstraining
We all have probably heard that the triceps occupies two thirds of the muscle mass of the upper arm, but if your triceps workouts are filled with the classic tricep workout mistakes then filling up that sleeve is going to be pretty difficult! I put together this video showcasing what I feel are the 7 Sins of Tricep Training to help you to not only identify these tricep workout mistakes but more importantly...to fix them!
From the way you position the bar during a set of nosebreakers to the choice of a barbell or dumbbells during the close grip bench press, to even the omission of some pretty incredible triceps exercises from your workout thinking that they couldn't get the job done of building muscle (big mistake), I'm going to cover each one in depth and help you get more out of your training. Mr. Ed would be jealous of those horseshoes!
So what is the problem with making a mistake here and there when working out your triceps? Not much really...when it's only one mistake. But that's not usually the way it happens. Often times, you make a few mistakes on one set of one triceps exercise, a few mistakes on your next triceps exercise, and even a few more in another. By the end of the tricep workout you're doing you've made more mistakes than you may have even known and the results you thought you were getting is compromised.
So the key is to correct them right here and now...using this Tricep Workout Mistakes - 7 Sins of Tricep Training video.
Then, when you're ready to start following a complete training program that addresses every muscle group and shows you step by step how to apply science to your workouts and get the best results you can, then head to *******athleanx**** and let me be your trainer! With the ATHLEAN-X Training System, I will show you video by video and workout by workout how to not only boost up those triceps but the rest of your body to create one explosively athletic physique! Looking forward to seeing you on "TEAM ATHLEAN"!

Lose your belly fat FAST:
It's Mike Chang and today I'm going to answer an email question about weight loss sent to me by Mr. John T. Taylor. This video not only explains what you must do to lose the weight, it'll also give you a plan to keep the fat off so you can always have six pack abs and a ripped body.
0:07 John T. Taylor's dilemma: I weigh 235 and I'm 5'10. I'm currently 18 years old and planning to join the army soon. The only problem is that the army wants me to drop 40 lbs before I can do so. What should I do?
The fastest way to lose weight is to change your diet. John spoke about eating homemade meals and having a beer gut.
0:40 Here's what you must do:
-Stop drinking beer :)
-Buy your own groceries and cook your own meals. Get the essentials which include protein, veggies and carbs. Stick to the basic protein sources like chicken and fish. Any veggies will do and when it comes to carbs, stick to whole wheat sources.
5:19 Start working out hard and if you don't have a gym membership stick to these exercises.
**Burpees, pullups, pushup, jumping lunges, jumping squats, planks, mountain climbers and running.
Complete 3 rounds with 30 seconds per each exercise.
Hope this help you out.

Get more chest shredding exercises in the complete program
Guys always seek out chest exercises that allow them to target specific areas of their chest like the upper or inner pecs. Some would argue that it's not possible to zero in on these areas of the chest or pectoralis muscle. I would agree that you cannot isolate a particularly area, but saying it's impossible to influence one area over another is simply not true.
In this video, I show you how to influence growth in the upper and inner pecs using a single dumbbell. This chest exercise is one that you can easily do at home since you don't need a lot of space or equipment to do it.
To perform this upper and inner chest exercise called the crossover shrug, simply grab a dumbbell and stand with it hanging in front of you. Begin by twisting your hand in, so your thumb points towards you, this will internally rotate your shoulder. From here, simultaneously lift the dumbbell up and across your chest as you shrug your shoulder. You should feel an intense squeeze in your pecs as you do this.
Slowly lower the dumbbell and repeat for 10-12 reps, making sure to hold the contraction of the pectorals on every rep. Again, you should see and feel the contribution of the different areas of the chest muscle as you perform this move.
The key to understanding what makes an effective chest exercise is how much of a complete contraction you can achieve by doing it. Wide grip bench presses for example do not involve enough horizontal adduction at the shoulder to make it the best exercise for building your chest (let alone your upper or inner chest).
For a complete workout program that will show you how to develop a complete, ripped muscular chest, be sure to head to *******athleanx****/x/complete-chest-builder and get the ATHLEAN-X Training System. I show you how top pro athletes build a massive chest by training like an athlete and ignoring the typical gym advice that simply isn't true.
