5 Exercises to Impress Your Imaginary Gym Boyfriend

Elle Woods is to the bend-and-snap as gay boys are to these exercises. Whether you’re an innocent gym bunny or you have the track record of a certified gym cruiser, odds are you rush home after each workout to tell your roommate about something stupid you did in front of your gym crush.  From experience,…

Listen to Your Body

I don’t run because my knees ache for days after. I don’t do certain shoulder exercises because I’ve gotten hurt doing some of them. I don’t use the barbell because I would want a spotter and I workout alone. These exercises are pretty crucial to most work-out regimes and when people ask how fast I…

It's probably a bad thing that I look at this photo and think that I should have flexed harder.

Boys and Body Image

An article came out last week revealing dramatically high rates of steroid use by gay and bisexual teen boys. With an average age of sixteen, the sample included 17,250 teenage boys, 635 of whom were gay or bisexual. An astounding 21 percent of gay and bisexual teens had tried steroids as compared to the 4…

Pre-Workout Drinks

When I first started seriously working-out I heard of something I had never heard of before: a pre-workout drink. What is it? It’s basically an energy boost that helps you push yourself harder at the gym without being steroids. They also have a fair amount of protein, creatine and other substances that help you gain…

Gym Pet Peeves

Once you become a regular at the gym, you start to understand that there’s a proper etiquette to follow. However, not everyone is so socially aware and can end up pissing everyone around them off. Here are list of ways to ensure that I am one of those people you piss off. 1. Not Reracking…

Insanity

If there’s a mainstream workout program that you’ve heard of that isn’t P90X, it’s most likely Insanity. It’s also easier for parents to say (I don’t know why they are so insistent on calling it PX90). From beachbody.com, the same creators of P90X, insanity is a 63 day work-out plan with workouts ranging from 20-40…

The Man of Steel Workout

  Here’s the thing with the Man of Steel workout: there is no way Henry Cavill got as ripped as he did from this workout. I could see him doing a variation of this program with more resistance exercises or even with an additional workout program on top of it, but this one alone? I…

P90X

  Here’s the thing with P90X: I love it. I recommend it to every friend I know. It’s nearly impossible for me to put on weight, and this program helped me gain enough muscle that people would stop making anorexia jokes. Not only will you build muscle, but you’ll get toned as well. There’s so much variety in the…
