Will A Low Carb Diet Make You Lose Muscle?

Will a low carb diet make you LOSE muscle? Find out in this episode of ATSGS! Let's go over some reasons why a low carb diet is not good for building muscle. First off, let's define what is low carb diet. I consider you eating a low carb diet when you're eating less than 50 grams of carbs per day. - A low carb diet is going to eventually give you less energy in the gym. - Eating a no carb diet is going to decrease your drive and motivation in the gym. - A low carb diet plan is going to prevent you from getting good "muscle pumps" when you're working out. - Low Carb diets make it harder to replenish muscle glycogen. - To keep up the training intensity on the low carb diet if you're going to use if for fat lass, I recommend a refeed day every 3-7 days.

Is Coffee BAD For You? (Scary stuff)

Visit for NEW REPORT Is coffee bad for you? Find out in this episode of ATSGS! Coffee can be bad for you, but it can also be beneficial... Why is coffee bad for you? Well coffee is bad for you becuase it is one of the most highly sprayed crops. Pesticides have been linked to many things including fat gain. When should you have coffee to make coffee healthy? The best time to have it would be right before a CNS based workout.

A SINGLE Best Way To Gain Muscle? (Shocking)

Visit Train with Vince & Ben What is the best way to gain muscle? Find out in this episode of ATSGS! Here are some of my best tips if you're serious about building muscle: 1. Rep ranges are important. For the most part, 8-12 reps will be the best way to gain muscle. Certain individuals may require more or less depending on their body type, but generally speaking 8-12 reps will be the best way to build muscle. 2. Sufficient TUT (time under tension) + sufficient load is a must! Research has shown that 40-70 seconds of TUT plus 70+% of your 1RM are some of the best ways to gain muscle fast. 3. Don't neglect the importance of sleep. Sometimes I wish I could live be the saying, "I'll sleep when I'm dead", but sleep is absolutely necessary if you want to gain muscle weight quickly. 4. Follow a program! Just "winging it" every time you go to the gym isn't going to cut it. When people email me and ask...(click the link to watch the video and read the r

How To Squat Properly

Want to LOSE your gut? CLICK here: I'm sure if you're into fitness at all at some point you've wanted to learn how to squat properly. Find out how to squat properly in this episode of ATSGS! Some things to keep in mind when trying to do proper squat form: 1. Straight lines. Proper squat form is feet under or just outside your shoulders, and your ankles, knees, hips and shoulders should all be in a straight line. 2. Don't let your knees cave in or fall out. When doing a regular back squat this can cause undue stress on the knee joint and potentially cause injury. 3. Keep that bar moving straight up and down. If you were to look at someone using proper squat form from the side, you would notice that the barbell moves up and down in a straight line. If it's not most likely it's because they are leaning forward too much, which can place excessive stress on your lower back. For more tips on how to squat properly watch the video!
