Try our Atomic Testosterone Supplement or Atomic Pump Creatine, or even better use them both together for the Best Legal Muscle Building Stack
One of my favorite sites from back in the day was "Iron Brotherhood Hardcore Bodybuilding", I'm not sure what happened to them but they went down a few years ago and never came back. I'm reprinting some of their articles here as a tribute and because they have such great information. Their book "Alpha Male: The Path to Hardcore Natural Bodybuilding" is still available on Amazon.com
Philosophy of Iron
I. Pumping Iron
to the Brotherhood or the Tribe transcends exercise and just wanting to "look
good". Those are very tangible goals for all us, even in the Brotherhood. We all want
to gain mass. But, somehow pumping iron becomes more than that. It becomes more than mere
exercise but a way of life. Even when you have a layoff for a month or even a year, you
still ending hearing the "Call". You always come back. You feel guilty as hell
when you miss a workout. People think you're crazy. Seem familiar?
II. Stick With The
natural is a way of life. It's in your heart as as well as the mind. We believe in
hitting' the body hard with the basics. Lift heavy, use the basic heavy movements, eat,
sleep, and give your body time to recuperate. That's the secret. It's not a magic
supplement, it's not the new workout in the muscle rags, and it's not a quick fix. You're
not gonna out put on 30lb.s of muscle in three months! It takes persistence, commitment,
will power, and the vision. You are the rock in the gym that's there day after day, month
after month, year after year. The others are pretenders.
A gaggle of
newbies always seem to rush into the gym after Christmas to lose 20 lb.s for summer. They
come socializing, high volume 5 day a week workouts for over an hour each session, lots
and lots of isolation movements. Yes, you've seen them. "Weider Babies", that's
what we call them. They usually burn out in few months and gone from the gym. They ignore
the basics. Instead of building a brick house of a body and then defining it later, the do
bunches of light weight isolationist movements and wonder how come they haven't grown. Of
course the remedy must be a supplement they're missing or the need of a new workout.
That's how it starts. A vicious cycle of the uninformed that never stops. Here's the
secret folks: pick five basic exercises (like squat, deadlift, bench, bent over row, and
military press), lift heavy, and STICK WITH IT FOR A TIME!!!! For god's sake, stop
changing workouts! It's not hard. It's just most people don't have the balls for intense
heavy sessions over a long period. They want results tomorrow and aren't willing to work
for what they want.
With lifting comes
camaraderie with your friends, the feeling of success as your bicep grows a 1/2" or
you hit a new PR (personal record), overall it comes from within. It's the clank of the
weights, the gritty hard drivin'music, and the natural high of lifting. It's the pump you
get. The satisfaction. It doesn't matter where you lift. Home gym or regular gym. Hardcore
mentality is with you wherever you go. As walls or barriers are thrown in your path,
you don't step aside. You move forward because you know in your heart, "Here comes
the wrecking ball, baby!!"
