The Jackson Five
Records are made to be broken, as the cliché goes. But it’s a rare event when a major bodybuilding mark is topped. With 45-year-old Dexter Jackson cracking the Arnold Classic top three only once in his previous four tries, it seemed unlikely that he would break the record. But you can never count out the Blade in Columbus. He’s made it his home court, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger did 45 years ago. On March 7, Jackson got five.
Live & Let Diet
Every bodybuilder knows that one of the best ways to shed body fat is to cut carbs while consuming a diet that’s high in protein and essential fats. What you may not know is that there are many different low-carb programmes, and they all work a little differently. FLEX will get into the differences in a minute, but here’s what these diets all have in common: They help you reduce body fat quickly while sparing muscle mass. Cutting carbs helps prevent overspiking insulin, and it also encourages your body to release stored fat that can then be burned as fuel.
The Incredible Hulk Program
Take a look around the next time you’re walking down the street. You’ll notice a lot of dissatisfied men—men who feel they have a bit too much Bruce Banner in them and not enough Incredible Hulk (the size and strength of the Hulk, mind you, not all the rage and destructiveness). Afterward, take a look in the mirror. Are you one of these men? If so, you need a training protocol that will considerably enhance your muscular size, strength, and power—if not quite to Hulk proportions, then, at the very least, surpassing Banner’s.
