Killer Quads Exercises

A strong foundation is what every well constructed structure must always start with. Your body is no different. Strong well developed legs are the sign of a seasoned bodybuilder, one who makes the effort to go the extra mile and endure the extra pain that goes along with well developed thighs.

Take a look at this video and check your form while testing your strength and endurance. Quads that display deep cuts and well defined separation will always separate you from the crowd. A crowd of individuals that litter every gym because they refuse to put forth the true effort it takes to be a complete and well balanced physique athlete.

Torso Twist

Like the side crunch torso twists work the obliques but with a rotational movement. Resistance is created by momentum rather than leverage alone. Therefore increasing the speed increases the resistance and difficulty of the exercise. Torso twists are great for golfers and anyone who wants to enhance the rotational mobility and power.

Exercises for Glutes

The gluteal muscles are the three muscles that make up the buttocks: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus.

Any exercise that works and/or stetches the buttocks is suitable, for example lunges, climbing stairs, fencing, bicycling, squats, arabesque, aerobics, and various specific exercises for the bottom.

Powerlifting exercises which are known to significantly strengthen the gluteal muscles include the squat and the deadlift. Another weight training exercise involving the glutes is the leg press.

Protein Vs. Obesity

Swedish scientists have discovered a protein that stimulates the formation of fat cells, a development that could potentially lead to treatment for obesity. The protein, according to Karolinska Institute, is called TRAP (tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase), and "stimulates the formation of new fat cells and can thus precipitate the development of obesity."

Dehydration is best avoided by drinking plenty of water. The greater the amount of water lost through perspiration, the more water must be consumed to replace it and avoid dehydration. Since the body cannot tolerate large deficits or excesses in total body water, consumption of water must be roughly concurrent with the loss (in other words, if one is perspiring, one should also be drinking water frequently). Drinking water beyond the needs of the body entails little risk, since the kidneys will efficiently remove any excess water through the urine with a large margin of safety.
