Insulin for Bodybuilding?

A physician’s analysis of insulin as used in bodybuilding and its side effects and properties. Insulin is a hormone and important medicine, but unlike steroids which have a variety of medical uses, insulin’s medical to a few circumstances. In type 2 diabetics it is a last resort when other interventions have failed. Therefore its use in bodybuilding is particularly concerning and comes with dangers both commonly known and rarely discussed. In my opinion its use as a PED is simply going too far. If you are considering taking Insulin as a PED or have taken it, please watch this video. If you know a medical professional who is unaware of this type of use, please share it with them!

BIG BENCH PRESS NOW!

The bench press is often the litmus test for being strong in the gym. Accurate or not, I coach competitors that need to be at their best in all three phases of a powerlifting meet.

Here are some tips you may not have considered to bring up your or a client’s press. I have added to exercises I love to help the bench press: Spartan presses, dead presses and JM presses.

Spartan presses combine the Spoto and Larsen press. This is all about bracing and the shove!
Focus on the sticking point with dead presses. I recommend starting at the top position to unrack the bar and settle into the shoulders.
This is not a skullcrusher! Elbows up and out!
