“Bodybuilding Tip #43
Do light rotator cuff exercises.”
The primary function of the rotator cuff is to stabilize the shoulders. The rotator cuff is often neglected, and thus injured. For this reason, it is important to properly warmup rotator cuff before doing “push” routines, involving the chest and shoulder muscle groups. The best way to warmup the rotator cuff is doing external rotation using a resistance band or a cable attached to a pulley with about 5-10 lbs of resistance. DO NOT USE A HEAVY WEIGHT!

"Bodybuilding Tip #42
Do not ignore your weakest muscle groups.”
You’re only as strong as your weakest link. It is important to work all muscle groups equally and with the same volume and frequency. Do not choose to ignore the smaller muscle groups like calves or forearms.

'Bodybuilding Did You Know? #5
You can’t convert fat to muscle.”
Fat and Muscle are two completely different entities. Muscle is an active tissue while fat is used to store excess calories as an energy source. It is almost impossible to achieve both losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time. The reason for this is in order to burn fat, you must deplete yourself of calories. Growth of muscle, requires extra calories. Two things to correct are diet and routine. Please have a look at the Nutrition post.

"Bodybuilding Tip #41
Use correct form when squatting.”
I can’t stress this one enough. Every time I go to the gym, I see people who don’t squat with proper form. The full squat means going below parallel- this is done by having your hip below your knee joint. This full squat will have the most benefits and be the most effective for building muscle and strength. Of course, due to larger range of motion, this exercise is more difficult and so you won’t be able to do as much weight. 
There are a few videos on this page with the correct squat form. Please have a look before you go.

T-Shirts

           

We just made a T-Shirt shop with some T-Shirts and Muscle Shirts that have quotes related to Bodybuilding. I tried to keep the price as low as possible. Have a look!

I do believe shipping to US is free. International shipping is a little pricey but out of my control.
