by David Sautter Also known as the 10 x 10 System, German Volume Training was made popular in the 1970s. While the true creator of G.V.T. remains unknown, it’s common knowledge that bodybuilder Rolf Feser was the reason for the system’s rise in popularity. For the hard gainers, this system can be a saving grace. When paired with a proper diet, it isn’t uncommon to gain between 10 to 15 [...]

by David Sautter The pull-up is an oldie but a goodie. It has been used since primitive times when we had to pull ourselves up on a tree branch to escape the pursuing lion or bear. It is an all-in-one type of movement and no workout plan should leave home without it. When done properly, the pull-up activates multiple muscle groups while allowing you to conquer your own body weight. [...]

by David Sautter When it comes to the age old question of “Coffee or tea?”, the typical response is coffee. People need that caffeine buzz. It’s like asking if you want a super charged SUV or a hybrid for your next road trip.

Instead of pushing aside tradition, many systems are taking several methods of exercise theory and combining them. The 600 Rep System is a hybrid that is extremely effective in helping you gain strength, increase lean muscle mass, and improve endurance. Let’s [...]

by David Sautter I know what you’re thinking and no, this is not the dinner special at your local Indian restaurant. Kombucha is the name of a super food that you need to get acquainted with and that’s what I’m here to help you do. Loaded with an obscene (seriously, the numbers will make your head spin) amount of probiotics, polyphenols, antioxidants and vitamins, Kombucha can radically change your health [...]

by David Sautter Honey is often associated with bees (obviously), Winnie-the-Pooh, and that candy that you can never seem to get out of your teeth once it’s in there. Not exactly the best reputation for something that is considered a super food throughout the health and fitness world. Honey is a wondrous thing. It can protect you during cold season, improve your athletic performance and help you heal. I’ll review [...]

by David Sautter If you are like me, you are constantly searching for the latest research on health and fitness. You dread the day that your favorite exercise will be listed as the number one culprit for a bad back, worn knees, or strained neck. You hold your breath and thankfully the news never arises. In your studies, I am certain that the squat was the subject of debate for [...]

by David Sautter Walk into any gym and I guarantee you will see a plethora of the classic protein shaker lining the floors, next to treadmills and free weights alike. For every type of shaker will be an equal number of varying supplements within. When you ask what’s inside, without a doubt, the response you’ll get the most is: “Oh, it’s such and such protein.” Protein, specifically whey protein, has [...]
