Full Body vs. Split Training for Natural Bodybuilders

BroSplit Vs. full body workout which is better form of training and which builds more muscle? I go with full body workout rather than bro split why you may ask? Here is the answer if you want your muscle to grow you need to stimulate your muscle and more you stimulate the bigger muscles you grow.

When on a full body workout routine you train major body parts like back, chest and legs 3 times per week sometimes more. Thus this frequency and using compound moments like bench press, deadlift and squats will beat your body up and yield great results.

When on a full body workout routine you end up expanding more energy compared to brosplit.  More energy you burn more calories you burn. Training biceps and triceps on a separate day is no match for exercises like bench press, squat and deadlifts. Here is a video detailing how each form of training routine impacts our body and yield result.

Best Protein Source for Indian Diet

I often get asked what the best Protein Source is for Indian Diet. Well the answer is neither complex nor very simple; there are varieties of food from which you can get the desired macros. What matters are your food choice and your goal, that’s the most important aspect one needs to focus on.


I am a Non-vegetarian and I like to get my protein from chicken and fish. Chicken and fish are one of the best sources of protein as they have low fat and great protein. I love eggs and I like to eat whole eggs rather than just egg whites.

When it comes to vegetarian source of protein I like paneer, tofu and cheese but I like to stay away from those foods and use them sparingly in my diet. You can get protein from milk products and soya, here in this video I explain that in details.

What are the best exercises build a massive back? Well you are at the right place to find out how.

Trapezius

Rhomboids

Must Do Exercises for Massive Shoulders

Shoulder muscles can be a very stubborn body part for some despite hard training sessions and constant effort. Be very diligent in choosing best shoulder exercises and best shoulder workout. Some don’t see the results they would like to see on them otherwise.  My followers and subscribers ask me what’s the best shoulder workout for mass; well I have good news for you iron lovers. Try these 5 exercises and you will see your shoulders responding to workouts in no time! I recommend this exercise as Must Do Exercises for Massive Shoulders.



As we all know our shoulder has three sides to it the front, rear, and side. Hitting all the heads to get the broad shoulders or frame you has always wanted and what exercise to use. My shoulders have always grown very well and they respond quickly to heavy training and lot of pressing movement be it dumbbell seated shoulder press or barbell press. Some people’s shoulders take little more effort and time to respond and grow. Begin your shoulder workout routine with some heavy over- head presses. This can be done standing or seated, overhead presses. Building crazy strength by bringing your triceps, upper pecs and even your abs into play to help you move more weight fast and in a very efficient manner.  Your goal should always be to get a beefier delts.



5 Exercises for Massive Shoulders is something which has helped me to make lot of gains and make my shoulder muscles respond with great development. Shoulder muscles have 3 heads which are front, rear and side, I recommend always do the compound movement first which hits every fiber in your shoulder muscle and gives you that great foundation with mass. This is how I learned how to build shoulder mass.

Clean and press, military press are some of the best compound exercises which you can start your shoulder workout with and make sure you go heavy on them without compromising the form. I suggest do 5 sets and no more keep the rep range around 7-10 and you will definitely feel the intensity and over a period of time great results. Shoulders as we know makes a big impact; consider you hitting a back double biceps pose and a greatly developed shoulder will make a big difference between an average pose and a great pose.

The wider your shoulders are the beautiful your frame looks and when your side delts are huge they make your arms appears more defined and ripped. Hit lateral raises one Arm or both arms at the same time to hit those side delts.

 Do these 5 exercises in the same order and rep range and your shoulders will start responding in no time.

Barbell Clean and Press 5 sets of 7 Reps 
Dumbbell Press 5 sets of 7 Reps  
One Arm Lateral Raises   5 sets of 10 Reps  
Arnold Press 5 sets of 10 Reps.
Barbell Shrugs 5 sets of 6-8 Reps  


Try these exercises and start saving money for a bigger sports jacket, because in sometime you will not be able to fit into one you already have!

Aesthetic physique of Bruce lee

What’s the first thing you notice when you see a Bruce lee movie? His unbelievable martial art skills and his amazing speed the other important thing you notice is his Aesthetic physique. It’s my tribute to the man who was a perfect combination of body and soul a legendary martial artist and renowned philosopher. Whenever I hear or think of muscularity first name that pops up in my mind is “Bruce lee”, he was lean, razor–sharp cuts, dense muscle not to the degree of professional bodybuilders but chiseled and well defined muscles.



His work ethic and single minded focus was second to none, he had that perfectionist mind set which made him a legend. He was not genetically gift with great genetics unlike our professional body builders; he built his awesome physique with sheer hard work and dedication. Just standing five feet and seven and a half inches tall and weighed around 126 to 145 pounds, he turned his body into an ultimate weapon which not only looked awesome but was also very strong and powerful.


Bruce’s interest in weight training mainly grew as part of martial arts training. He was a renaissance’s man; he had achieved the muscularity, definition and proportion to the same degree as that of body builders of today. Bruce’s main focus was towards strength and speed, the chiseled and ripped to the bone physique was byproduct of his intense training. His body was graceful and tremendously functional; he would leap eight feet in the air to kick out a light bulb in one of his movies. He would demonstrate one inch punch which could generate so much of power that it would send the person on the receiving end flying in the air. Bruce was a pound for pound fighter , his reflexes were so quick that he had to slow down for his movies, so as to capture his punches and kicks on screen, man he was lightening quick. He termed his approach towards physical training as “the art of expressing the human body”. He demonstrated extreme flexibility, lighting quick reflexes, grace and colossal power. He didn’t believe in being huge or big but believed in being capable of converting one’s strength efficiently and quickly.  Bruce had a well-proportioned physique, but his best body part was his abs, it is said that he loved to work his abs and forearms.




Some of Bruce’s feats of strength are he could perform one hand push-ups or thumbs only push –ups. He was able to support a 125-pound barbell at arm length right in front of him, mind you he weighted between 126 to 145 pounds. How can we forget his one inch punch? That would send the opponent flying in air. He could side kick 300 pound heavy bag slapping against the ceiling. Lee was always on the look out to train his muscles in new and unique ways to stimulate more muscle fibers; he had a huge collection of books ranging from bodybuilding to philosophy in his personal library.

Below is lee’s workout program:

Clean & press 2 sets – 8 reps
Squats 2 sets – 12 reps
Bench press 2 sets – 6 reps
Pullovers 2 sets – 8 reps
Good mornings 2 sets – 8 reps
Barbell curls 2 sets - 8 reps




Bruce was well ahead of his time, be in terms of fitness or nutrition, he was a great martial artist and a wonderful human being. He can also be termed as first one who introduced MMA (mixed martial arts) in way because he didn’t not believe or limit himself to one style of fighting.  I would like to conclude this article with one of his quotes on martial arts and fitness, he said “if you’re talking about combat- as it is – well then, baby you’d better train every part of your body!”
