#StoppanisBreakdown Leg Press.
.
.
Sit on the Leg Press Machine and firmly place your feet shoulder width apart on the platform. Unlock the racking system that holds the sliding sled in place. Slowly lower down by flexing the legs, keeping the knees from pointing inward and your hells secure as you press. Lower down until you start to feel you butt start to come off of the seat. Firmly press evenly upward until the legs straighten.

Tips: Do not lower down to where your back or your butt comes off of the seat. Do not lock your legs/knees out straight when you press back up. Always keep tension to the leg muscles by not locking out your legs. Grasp firmly on the hand rails if the machines provides them for you. Avoid pushing your knees straight as a

There's not a guy alive who isn't interested in a more impressive biceps peak. And while the amount of peak you have on your biceps is genetically predetermined to an extent, that doesn't mean you can't drastically improve what you've got. The key is proper exercise selection. The majority of the peak that pops up when you flex your biceps is made up of the biceps' long (outer) head. And although both the long head and short (inner) head work together to flex the arm, you can place better emphasis on the long head with the right techniques.

#stoppanisbreakdown high cable curl.
.
.
start: stand in the middle of a cable crossover apparatus, gripping single-handle d-grips attached to the upper pulleys with underhand grips. both arms should be extended out to your sides so that your body looks like a "t" in the starting position.
.
.
move: curl the handles in toward your shoulders while keeping your uppper arms stationary. hold for a second in the flexed position while squeezing your biceps hard. this will look like a bodybuilder doing a double biceps pose. slowly return the handles to the start position.

#thumbsupthursday. thumbs up to an open grip on the barbell bench press. it will help you push more weight, but it's also safer on your shoulder joints. and you thought an open grip was more dangerous! nope. that's just one "trick" i use for both performance and injury prevention. take safety a step further when using the open grip by using straps. what tricks do you have in your bag? tell me below. best answer will win a #jymsystem plus a @trainhylete t-shirt and a $20 coupon code to buy jym products @bodybuildingcom
