Lee Labrada Talks About Injuries, Preventing Them and What To Do If You Get Them
by Clayton South and Lee Labrada

Bodybuilding injuries can occur for several reasons and once they happen, they limit our ability to continue making progress.

As bodybuilders hit the gym harder than ever in order to build some serious muscle, inevitably some get injured in the attempt to get the perfect body. When this happens, what do we do? How can we avoid being sidelined or, worse, crippled, by injury? How can we continue on to achieve our goals?

In this interview, Lee Labrada shares his over three decades of professional bodybuilding expertise and knowledge, and answers these questions like no one else can.

Simple Changes Make All The Difference

by Lee Labrada, IFBB Hall of Famer

What would you say if I told you that your level of “self-discipline” might not be quite “up to snuff” when it comes to building a lean and muscular body? Before you answer, consider this: no matter whether you’re an elite body builder or a “couch potato,” you still have the same amount of self-discipline.

How is this possible? The difference lies in which habits you’re disciplined to.

Since I have been getting a lot of questions on what is a good book that focuses JUST on getting ready (or just looking like you are ready) for a bodybuilding, figure, or bikini contest, I decided to write a review of Keith Klein’s and Lee Labrada’s Get Lean Book.

Keith Klein’s and Lee Labrada’s Get Lean Book

Get Lean BookKeith Klein’s and Lee Labrada’s Get Lean Book consists of 190 pages comprised of 18 chapters and an appendix containing weekly training and nutrition journals. Keep in mind that while the book is geared to male and female competitors, the information can be used by those who simply want to look lean enough to compete.

The following are subjects that you can expect to fully understand after reading this book:

1-Benefits of Contest Prep Bodybuilding Dieting and Training
The book starts covering the topic of the benefits brought upon by getting lean enough for competition; whether formal competition, as in stepping on a bodybuilding or figure stage, or simply competing against yourself. This chapter also covers common mistakes made when bodybuilders attempt to get lean, such as overtraining and drastically cutting calories.

2-Nutrition Basics, Weight Training and Recovery
Chapters 2 and 3 go on to fully cover nutrition basics, such as the role of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, as well as calories, metabolism, water, sodium, and the importance of fiber. By the time you finish these two chapters you will have a much more thorough understanding of nutrition than even some certified fitness professionals (as unfortunately, many certified trainers that I’ve met lack understanding of this subject).

Been trying to coax your calf muscles to grow without any success? If so, you’re not alone. The calves are one of the most difficult muscle groups to stimulate in the entire human body. One reason for this is the resiliency of the muscle tissue found in the calves to the stress imposed on it by hundreds and hundreds of daily repetitions from walking and other common activities.
