WATCH: Table Talk - The Most Common Mistakes Novice Powerlifters Make Joe Sullivan takes on this week's Table Talk question solo. For Joe, it's that people's breathing gets fucked up.

Cellucor C4 On the Go RTD Review I recently picked up a new product from Cellucor that I thought would make for an interesting review and one that many would like my opinion and thoughts on.

I'm Sick - Should I Train or Stay Home? Listen: I'm no doctor or rocket scientist, but even I have enough common sense to know that if you're feeling under the weather, you shouldn't be lifting. You should be resting at home. Yeah, you heard me: Go home and stay home. And stay out of your fancy little garage gym, too!
The Best Shoulder Workouts for Men and Women I can attest to this firsthand. Check out this picture of me taken several years ago, before I knew what I was doing in the kitchen and gym:.

Lee Labrada - The Legend Continues The sport of bodybuilding seems to know no time, because the champions of yesterday continue inspire the youth today.

Add 100 Pounds to Your Deadlift I decided to go back to powerlifting and tested out where my sumo was. First time I went back to it, the weights were flying off the floor, and I went on to pull 800 pounds at the meet. Getting stronger in my weaker stance added 100 pounds to my deadlift.
