We all know that there are differences in carbohydrates - high glycemic, low glycemic, simple sugars, starches, etc. And we know that different carbohydrates are absorbed in the gut and appear in the blood at different rates depending on various factors. For example simple sugars are absorbed more quickly than more complex ones, the rate of absorption of the latter depending on how quickly the complex sugars especially in the form of starches, can be broken down and subsequently absorbed.

There are a lot of factors that impact on athletic performance, some of which are changeable, and others that are not.

There’s a misconception that we’re not all that much different from each other. While that may be true of the big picture—we all have arms, legs, hearts, etc.—there are enough minor differences in each of us to make significant changes on what we can and can’t be as well as accomplish.

Q
Yo, my bench REALLY sucks, and I'm struggling to make progress. I saw a video of one of your guys, Stan Efferding, benching 600-plus pounds. That got me all fired up! Help me out, brah; I need to get my stats up!

Mark: The fastest route to big gains is to correct your form and work on improving it. I know coaches who can show people how to cut a tenth of a second off their 40-yard dash simply by having them change their setup at the starting line.

Q
What's your absolute favorite strongman move, and how would I add it to my regular lifting split?

My favorite strongman moves? Dragging movements, big son! Bring out your inner caveman and pull home some fresh-clubbed dinner! Or, if don't wanna drag a deer with your bare hands ... go sledding!

Continue reading

Q
I just want to look bigger. Is there any reason I should incorporate power/strength training into my lifting routine?

Big son, are you freakin' kidding me? You go to a gym for 2 reasons, and 2 reasons only:

  • To get jacked
  • To get stronger
  • To look at hot chicks
  • To get that Jersey Shore tan and showcase how jacked you are

Okay, so only 2 legit reasons (I'll let you figure out which those are). Guess what? They go hand-in-hand. You need a strong foundation to get jacked, no doubt about it!

Q
Big Bell, how can I train max effort squats with an injured back?

First thing's f#cking last: Why is your back hurting, cupcake? I hear people say, "Dude, I don't deadlift because it hurts my back." To which I reply, "No, your back hurts because you're weak, and you don't deadlift because you're a pansy!"

Continue reading

Q
Hell's Bell, strong dude: you have some massively huge pipes! How big are they? More important, how do I build bigger arms?

Mark: Listen up, big son: only fools and meatheads measure their arms. If I had to take a SWAG (Scientific Wild-Ass Guess), I'd say my guns at their biggest measured 22 1/2 inches. Now, at a lighter body weight, they're probably 21 1/4 inches.

Not that I'd ever actually measure them - how ridiculous!

Q
My goal is to deadlift 500 pounds by the end of summer. By deadlifting every other week, I've come pretty close. Yesterday, for example, I did 225 x 10, 315 x 8, 405 x 6, 425 x 3, and then two sets of 445 x 1-which felt pretty heavy. Is there too much warming up? Any tips on how to break on through to the other side?

-Elijah Wheeler, Washington, DC

A: Okay, your goal is 500, and you're currently at about 450. Let's attack this somabitch with everything we got. We'll even use the fatty tissue between your ears for a change.

Q
Strong dude! I shrug like a sissy, but I want a strong snake around my neck. I'm tired of these tiny traps! How do I build the shirt-tearing traps of a Titan?

Mark: Good question, son! Luckily, it's got a simple answer. Train like a mofo and don't really worry about it!

Don't believe me?

If it sounds dumb, don't worry, I been hearin' that all my life ... from people smaller and scrawnier than me!

Continue reading

Q
What's up, strong dude? I'm trying to build strength and muscle mass. How can I do both at the same time?

Mark: In a word, powerlifting. Make that two words: Power Lifting.
(And if I my editor changes that phrase to lower-case, just because it's "correct," I'm going head straight to Idaho and knock his ass around the office for a while.)

Q
Strong fella! I'm sick of crunches. Can you help me put together a new core workout?

The only crunches I know of are Captain Crunch and Nestle Crunch Bars, and neither of them will get you a ripped core. Watch out for the Captain Crunch: It kills the roof of your mouth!

You want a killer core workout, Supertraining style? Careful what you wish for, big son - you may regret it, and you just might get it! Get ready to build a burly core with some super-charged planks.

Q
Hey, Mark, I caught a video of you doing a 755-pound deadlift, easy, in your last meet. I got all hyped up to deadlift the next day, and I hurt my back using 275. How do you guys dead such heavy loads without wrecking your back?

Mark: The short answer: We can abuse our backs because our backs are strong.

The most "dangerous" exercises are some of the best for building strength. Always weigh the risk-to-benefit ratio, but leave the safe exercises for the soccer moms.

Antioxidants form a front line defense against cell damage caused by free radicals, which are involved in muscle, joint and tendon damage and inflammation, degenerative arthritis, even the aging process. The use of antioxidants can reduce free radical damage that occurs when we exercise1 and can also attenuate the ongoing damage to injured tissues caused by free radicals, thus accelerating the healing process. As well, antioxidants have been shown to enhance aerobic performance.2

The emphasis these days has shifted to specific amino acids over the use of others. For example the essential amino acids, especially leucine, are considered important and many feel that the other amino acids aren't necessary. Others feel that the a few of the conditionally essential amino acids, such as glutamine and arginine, are also extremely important for maximizing body composition and exercise performance.

But that's not the case. All of the amino acids are important, in one way or another. Ignoring them can be a big mistake.
