Woman doing muscle-up progressions Muscle-Up Progressions - The following progressions are just a few of many muscle-up progressions that exist.

Updated: Clothing for Muscular Women – 4 Simple Rules - I was inspired to write this article after having an emotional experience with clothes. I have a history of ripping pants, long-sleeved shirts, and never finding jeans that fit my quads, calves, and waist uniformly. I usually laugh at this. It’s kind of a source of pride: knowing I’ve grown enough muscle to burst out […]
Butt Bible Review - Quick and dirty takeaways: Great routines that really target the glutes, so you don’t need to worry about overtraining your legs. The order of exercises is excellent.

How Many Days a Week Should You Train Per Goal How Many Days/Week Should You Train? - Your body is a reflection of your habits. For results, you must expose yourself to the right exercises for your goal at a frequency that tells your body it’s time to adapt. In other words, shake up what your body is used to and introduce it to a new norm that it must condition itself […]
Want Developed Shoulders? Practice Handstands. - You don’t have to be proficient at an exercise to reap benefits from it. The process of building the strength and musculoskeletal stability to hold a handstand in itself yields muscular development.

Quick Calisthenic Move - I saw Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson do this once — thought I’d give it a try. For months I couldn’t do more than two reps in a row. I realized my technique was the problem. To be successful with this move, reach up and over from start to finish (arms up in the lying position […]
hip thrusts Single-Leg S. Ball Hip Thrusts - Why you must add this exercise to your glute routine: Unlike bilateral hip thrusts (w/ both legs on the floor), single-leg hip thrusts enable 100% focus on each glute through working them separately. Unilateral (single leg, single arm) movements force all muscles in the targeted area to be activated to keep the body from falling […]
