Version YOU.0: 50 Tips for Tackling 2013
Hit 2013 with your best! Here are 50 practical tips to help you level up and be better than ever.
16) Be a Tight Ass
Squeeze your glutes during every heavy lift, particularly bench and overhead presses. It increases stability in your torso so you can handle more weight.
17) Snack Smarter
Whey protein bars build muscle and curb appetite.
18) Go Barefoot
Take your shoes off for deadlifts. It will decrease the distance you have to pull the bar, giving you a mechanical advantage.
19) Heavy, Light, Heavy, Light
To hit the entire spectrum of muscle fibers, set up your workouts so that you train heavy one day, then lighter with more reps later in the week.
20) Get the Blues
When shopping for new dinner plates, look for anything blue, and small. Studies
show that the color blue has an appetite-suppressing effect (unlike red and yellow, which could have the opposite effect), and a smaller plate will reduce the amount of food you can pile onto it.
