Monday, June 5th, 2006. This routine is one whopper of an arm builder. It’s a bodybuilding classic. If this doesn’t pack inches of sleeve-busting muscle on your biceps and triceps, then nothing will… read on for Bigger arm secrets…

Sunday, June 4th, 2006. Strong and shapely gym, East Rutherford, New Jersey. We’re near the peak of Muscle MASS PHASE now, and entering new territory. New personal records were hit today. In fact, we had to do today’s session at Strong & Shapely because we needed the 125+ lb dumbbells, the 300 lb lat stack, and of course the “torture rack”…

Once again, I’ve become delinquent in my bodybuilding blog entries (sorry gang), but, I’ve got a couple more months of mass training before it’s back to dieting for competition in the fall, so I promise to post often enough over the next eight weeks or so to at least give you a good sampling of what my off season programs look like. Today, I’ll show you how I modified my split routine to specialize on a particular body part or muscle group – in this case – arm specialization. Read on to find out some tricks and tactics for saying goodbye to “pipe cleaners” and hello to the “big guns!”

Saturday, April 8th, 2006. It’s axiomatic that exercises that give you the best results are always the hardest ones to do. If you want a huge back… you row and deadlift. If you want huge legs you squat… OR… you do THIS exercise – that almost no one wants to do because its one of the hardest of all.

Have you ever had those workouts where you SWEAR you grew overnight, literally from one workout? Where your muscles are so sore the next day that every time you so much as twitch, let alone get up and walk across the room, you FEEL it? It’s that deep muscle soreness – way down into the deepest fibers that had been asleep for years. And your muscles feel heavy. Not tired heavy, but “good heavy” – as in still pumped, and heavy under the sheer weight of the muscle mass… just sort of hanging… as if you had Ronnie Coleman’s lats. Yeah that’s it. Yes, all the serious bodybuilders know exactly what I’m talking about. Those non-bodybuilders who happened to surf onto this page by accident or are reading this out of curiosity are just scratching their heads. Blank stare. Deer in headlights. But we in the bodybuilding brotherhood (and sisterhood), we know. Well, this was one of those workouts. I’ve been a little delinquent in my blog entries, but I knew I HAD to post this one so you could see what causes such “overnight growth.”

Monday, March 7th, 2006. Empire Fitness Club, Hoboken, New Jersey. 6:30 am. Yes, 6:30 AM. Blame it on my training partner, Kostas, who forced me to get up before the sun was even up to train in the morning (to avoid the Monday night gym crowds). Actually, I’m usually a fairly early riser (between 6 and 7 am), and I enjoy being up early, but usually the first couple hours of the day are dedicated to becoming caffeinated, reading and just waking up mentally and physically. My preferred weight training time is late morning after I’m fully awake and a couple of meals are in me. High intensity weight training in the early AM was never my cup of tea. Surprisingly though, we blasted out a killer mass-building shoulder and tricep workout today. Check it out…

February 13th, 2006. A Bodybuilding Secrets reader wrote: “Tom, could you tell me what supplements you take? I know from reading some of your articles and newsletters that you aren’t really big on supplements, but I remember reading somewhere that you said you believe in a few basic supplements but I don’t remember what they were. I also read something on Jon Benson’s website where he said you are the most “natural” bodybuilder he knows and that you don’t even take aspirin. Is this true?”…(more)
