the tao of lifting

Is it just me or is there some strange spiritual cleansing that happens when we train? We all have our day to day problems in a world that seems to be moving faster, as if it’s a runaway train on a track with no end. Let’s face it, bodybuilders are a special breed of extremists. While the lifestyles we lead may be similar in this regard, what differentiates the iron brethren are the differing reasons why we choose to face-off against of the iron and steel in the gym. Some just want that XXL T-shirt to fit a little tighter; others want to lose the extra flab they have been carrying around for too long. Some do it to climb onto the stage to showcase what they’ve sculpted to the world;…

thirteen years young

Whenever this anniversary edition rolls around I always get a little nostalgic as I think back through everything that both the business and the sport have been through. The issue in your hands represents a lucky 13 years of publishing Muscle Evolution magazine – 73 issues in total. I’ve created a few brands since the inception of this one, but for me Muscle Evolution will always remain closest to my heart. It marked the beginning of my career in magazine publishing and it has helped me form bonds with some of the best people I have had, and ever will have the pleasure of calling friends and clients.

“To put things in perspective, I’ve been competing for more than 20 years and have been training for a few more years than that. In that time I have only gained around 30kg of muscle, which equates to around 1,5kg per year – slightly more than 100g per month on average.” PLATEAU-BUSTING PLAN Q I’m 21 years old and have been training solidly for a year and four months now. I train 5-6 days a week. My schedule consists of one day of cardio and the rest of the time is dedicated to weight training. I have been following a good diet consisting of high carbs (basmati rice, oats) and high protein (steak or chicken breasts), and I’ve been using whey protein and a pre-workout. I’ve managed to drop body fat while…
