 Supplecity: straight info on training, diet, supplements, fat loss, and health.

This is Mark at age 56. This photo shows very large obliques, which are the result of hard training on the core.

No sit-ups or crunches will ever achieve this look or result in such a powerful core. So, no, this isn't from mindlessly cranking out sit-ups. Total number of sit-ups done in the last 25 years: Zero.

What do obliques do? They stabilize the trunk, and also provide rotational power. For a climber or martial artist, this provides a huge advantage.

Strong obliques nearly guarantee no back pain, too.


At left, again at age 56. This shot shows shoulder striations, chest, big veins, and again those big obliques.

Many people assume this is the result of "doing lots of cardio." In fact, Mark does absolutely zero "cardio work."

Real athletes don't "do cardio" because it isn't necessary. If you train with intensity, the cardio portion takes care of itself. An intensity-centric weight trainer is breathing hard between sets.

Those who "do cardio" see their calorie burn go up, but only during the cardio session. Then their cortisol goes up, which causes them to store fat again. That's why those folks doing all that treadmill time just can't seem to shed the "weight" (body fat).

You don't see those big obliques on competitive bodybuilders, because they "expand the waistline" (Mark wears a size 31 pant, so it isn't expanding that much).

Vince Gironda absolutely barred his trainees from doing hanging leg raises or anything that developed the obliques because the tapered look is so important to those competitive bodybuilders. But there is a functional cost to it.


At left, again age 56. You can see a lot of definition, even at this wide angle. What else do you see?

This shot was intended to illustrate someone about to go into motion, evoking the image of a coiled spring. You can see the tension in the right leg but also in the hips where the motion is being initiated from.

Again, you see the big obliques, big chest, etc. This isn't a competitive body builder's look, but it is a look that says "powerful body."

From these photos, it should now be clear that age does not make you fat and weak. Your choices make you fat and weak. But you can choose to be lean and strong.

Read our free articles, if you don't know what choices to make.

Develop a powerful back that shows you are a serious athlete If you want lean muscle, Supplecity's got your back. That's Mark, on the left, shortly after turning 50. Notice the extreme development of the lat insertions (those are not ribs you see) and rhomboids, along with the lack of body fat.

Develop powerful shoulders that look great and prevent injury How are your shoulders?

Solid, well-developed shoulders look great on a guy. The make him look balanced and powerful.

When women reach their genetic potential with shoulder development, their entire figure is enhanced. This effect has to do with how the eye follows an outline. This effect is why women's clothes often have shoulder pads. And just try buying a man's suit without shoulder pads--it's probably not going to happen.

Men and women can both ditch the shoulder pads and look great. What happens when you are wearing something, say, a tank top, that doesn't have pads? With proper shoulder development, you can ensure you always have that powerful shoulder look. Because it will be part of you, not part of something fake like shoulder pads.

Do you have impressive arms?

That doesn't mean biceps that look freaky while the rest of your arm looks puny. It means arms that look strong and are strong. It's a total package. And you can have it.

You can build impressive arms.


You can train to get great guns, we explain how

You can get ripped and strong. Contrary to commonly spewed nonsense, these are not opposing goals. The same training that gets you the adaptive response that elevates testosterone so you build muscle is the same training that gets you the adaptive response that elevates testosterone so you burn fat. Ditto for the diet.

That's our founder on the left, photo taken at age 55.
