18-Pound Fat Loss–Motivational

One of our OSBN users sent us her amazing results, but first… We wanted to thank everyone who ordered our new Midsection Makeover e-book (not to mention Old School New Body). We’re already getting great feedback, like this… “[Midsection Makeover] has removed one of my major hesitations of trying to get fit at my age […]

Don’t Make This Mistake: Cheat-Day Meal Size

Don’t Make This Mistake: Cheat-Day Meal Size

We received an e-mail that asked if eating three large meals on cheat, or Victory, day was okay. Most everyone seems to be looking at that one “free” eating day as the time they can go hog wild. (We’ve used it to oink out ourselves.) But that’s not what your Victory Day is for. It’s […]

2 Quick Anti-Aging Tips

Know what causes wrinkles? Having teenage children. Yep, that contributes, but it’s actually the breakdown of collagen in the skin… One of the building blocks of collagen is vitamin C. An interesting new study found another anti-aging key from C: release of the anti-aging agent growth hormone (which also improves skin)… According to a 2012 […]

Your Mind-Twist Fat-Loss Switch

Your Mind-Twist Fat-Loss Switch Sometimes even a 30-minute workout doesn’t seem possible–not because you’re injured but because you just don’t feel up to it. “Wow, I have to push and pull for 30 minutes and work up a sweat?

Eat Right, Burn Fat

We’ve had a lot of questions concerning diet, one of the most common is, “Where is a chart that tells me how many calories I need each day?” Another is, “I’m confused about how to eat; do you have a diet I can follow?” First, you need to grasp the fact that your calorie needs […]

Reality Check With Steve and Beck

Reality Check With Steve and Beck

The reality of getting in shape for most is that the effort and drive don’t last but a few weeks–sometimes less. Over-enthusiasm can take a toll and burn people out out quickly. You must make it a gradual, manageable push forward. Two hours a day six days a week is NOT a successful strategy. Becky […]

Old School Ripping Tool

Remember the bodybuilders of yesteryear who would often shift their workouts to high reps for cuts? Oh, brother [roll eyes]. I guess back in the dark ages they didn’t know that you can’t etch in cuts with higher reps—or can you?  Before we go any further I want to point out that bodybuilders have been […]

Built For Life: Motto for a New You

Built For Life: Motto for a New You

Built for Life.” Kind of an interesting title, if you think about it, because it has two meanings. The first is staying in attention-grabbing muscular shape for as long as you’re alive and able to exercise—you will remain “built” your entire life, never embarrassed to peel off your shirt at the beach, lake or pool.

Revving Your Lean Machine: The Truth About Soreness

When you first started working out, you probably hated it. Soreness hurts! But as you progressed, you no doubt embraced it—most of us consider it a signal that we’ve done our diligence and stimulated plenty of muscle growth. But is that true? The fact is, there are no studies connecting muscle soreness to hypertrophy. Okay, […]
