How many times a week should you train a muscle? TEXT: JOSE MARIA GARCIA PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILUSTRATIONS: JOSEF ADLT / RAYMOND CASSAR EVERYTHING DEPENDS on your answers to some initial key questions.

INFINITE SETS TEXT: EDUARDO FRANCO PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILUSTRATIONS: RAYMOND CASSAR/JOSEF ADLT/ ANDRÉS VAQUERO WHAT IS AN INFINITE SET? It is a set with no defined end, which becomes increasingly more difficult and taxing. It is the most intense type of high intensity training you can perform in the short term and which then allows the body time to recover in order to avoid overtraining, a common mistake by many people who do too many sets and lift excessive weights over a period of weeks and even months. Don’t confuse infinite sets with circuit training. With circuit [...]

"Biological immortality" TEXT: EDUARDO FRANCO PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILUSTRATIONS: ANDRÉS VAQUERO Can we utilise telomerase to allow us to live in good health indefinitely? We have already talked about the natural and man-made conditions (forced or voluntary: such as glycation, length of telomeres, various pollutants and stress) that limit a long, active life (we are not interested in any other kind of existence here besides one that is active and creative, rewarding, useful and supportive of others; it is about getting as close as possible to the Greco-Latin ideal - practical and valuable - healthy mind [...]

The magnificent 5 for building muscle


The MAGNIFICENT 5 for building muscle THE EXERCISES THAT WORK BETTER THAN ANY OTHER FOR INCREASED STRENGTH AND MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT THE 5 MOST EFFECTIVE EXERCISES OF ALL TIME The deadlift was the first of the five lifts to be performed. It requires the most basic movement of all: raising a load from the ground and standing up straight. Pull-ups came later: they developed from using the arms to see things or people on the horizon. The squat emerged at about the same time: it consisted of pushing against a load, carrying it on the shoulders or dragging it. The military press was [...]

5 Keys to fat loss


5 KEYS TO FAT LOSS Sometimes it is not clear what to do in the quest to lose fat. We mean fat rather than weight because it is this type of body tissue (fat = adipose tissue) that people usually mean when they say “I want to lose weight”. Most bodybuilders have the mindset to lose fat but it’s still best to be clear about the difference between losing fat and weight. Let’s look briefly at the factors that most frequently prevent the human body getting rid of fat. 1. DIETING (BURNING MORE CALORIES THAN YOU EAT)It [...]

From here to inmortality


FROM HERE TO IMMORTALITY Since the beginning of time, man has wondered why he grows old and eventually dies. Until now nobody could answer this question. However, in recent decades a leading group of ideological geneticists has begun to give some accurate-looking answers. Their experiments are authentic and have produced ever-stronger evidence. Aubrey De Grey, a leading expert in this field, believes there are some people alive today who will still be alive in the year 3000. Is this possible? Maybe. How could it be achieved? He suggests the answer lies in learning about the seven components [...]
