A New Bio-Active Fat-Burning Protein
By Jeff Volek
Here we go again. Another year to dream big about your ideal physique. The question is, are you just going to dream again, only to endure disappointment as January turns into June and nothing much has changed?
Or is 2009 going to be the year that you turn your dreams into reality?
The start of a new year is the perfect time to set goals. If achieving new heights of muscularity and leanness has eluded you for more years than you care to remember, then here’s some good news. New innovations in protein synthesis are emerging at an astounding rate, resulting in powerful new transformational technologies, including one new amazing new protein that may change forever the way athletes trim fat and support muscle mass.
Carve a killer six-pack fast with these four 10-minute circuit-training workouts.
It’s now inevitable any time a football coach stands on the precipice of winning a championship. A handful of players sneak up behind him with a cooler full of icy Gatorade and dump it over his head. And every time, fans at home are shaking their head, thinking, How lame, boring and played out is that tradition?
Now, stop and think about this: Could those same descriptive terms be ascribed to your ab training? How long have you been using the same tired formula of exercises, sets and reps? And most importantly, are you getting results — or has all that work over the years been about as meaningless as the college football bowl season? Read the rest of this entry »

You can build quads and hamstrings as thick as tree trunks—and chop down your workout time in the process. These four thigh-focused circuit-training workouts will deliver results in 20 minutes.
There are plenty of complicated things you can accomplish if you have 20 minutes to spare. You can cook a healthy dinner. You can balance your checkbook. You can even clear off last night’s Daily Show from your TiVo (watch segment one and two, skip the interview). But every bodybuilder worth his weight in protein powder knows you can’t get a great, effective thigh workout in 20 minutes.
Or can you? The prevailing theory is that the major muscles of the thigh — the quadriceps on the front of the leg, and the hamstrings on the back — are just too big and tough to break down from a mere one-third hour of heavy lifting. Read the rest of this entry »

As we look upon the next stage of “In Search of Power” with part four of the development program leading into the full-scale DMC™ system, we will begin to see the first signs of merging the ground-based DMC™ with the upright RED2 system first seen in part two of the series.
For followers of the previous sections, overall strength in the lower extremities and trunk should be exploding and for many it will be a surprise given the lack of cumbersome gym equipment or expensive gym memberships. As shown in the photos, this workout can be done in any setting (i.e. a nice snowy day on top of a mountain) and only requires a minimum amount of space. In fact, exercise enthusiasts and professional trainers and coaches should consider doing this section and eventually the entire DMC™ system in large group settings.
Following parts 1, 2 and 3, it is likely best to take a step back and review development as well as address potential concerns of early users of the DMC™ system. For those who have gone through the program to-date, the typical problems experienced relate to basically insufficient lower body strength as evidenced by the inability to maintain body position during longer holds. Not only does this suggest the lack of appropriate balance between the upper and lower body, as well as poor relative, posterior-chain and core strength, but it reveals an insufficient work threshold.
As you consider the advanced demands of DMC™ as shown by these problems, you’ll come to the conclusion it is possibly the best form of weighted general physical preparation work available, while requiring no costly and cumbersome equipment. That might not make it too popular amongst the equipment providers, but it is for this reason that professional coaches, athletes and elite-level trainers have made it an indispensable part of their training.
