WBFF PRO Tiffany Tillinger│Interview

At the risk of sounding unprofessional – OMFG, Tiffany Tillinger is hot!

And she’s not just a looker, she’s a genuinely nice person too – I had loads of fun interviewing her.

OK, where to begin? Right, Tiffany is a WBFF Bikini PRO. No surprises there – she definitely looks the part. I remember catching a glimpse of her on the WBFF’s Facebook page and thinking “wow, this girl looks like she has been torn straight of a page in Oxygen” – a women’s fitness magazine. I say that about a lot of girls in the industry – looking great is one thing, but having the personality to match is another. So, I wanted to put Tiffany to the test by interviewing her. She happily agreed. We had fun, and she came up trumps! This is one not to be missed – interview after the cut.

Getting To Grips With Weight Loss│Q & A

Having recently answered a question on weight loss, I was in two minds when I received this question via email:

“Hi there, must say i’m impressed with the blog…well done. What is the quickest way to lose fat – ive put on sooo much over the summer (>20 kg) but it just won’t go away. Is there any special food i should have (slimfast?) and i go to uni doing medicine which means after all the work i get i have not got the energy to go gyming. Any spare time i find, i play badminton for 3 hours a week and cycle for 2 hours a week. Pls help [sic].”

At first, I considered referring him to a previous Q + A (similar topic), but then I read more closely; there were a few words/statements that stuck out to me which I felt needed addressing. So, thank you for your question – You can read my response after the cut.

Understanding Time Under Tension

1 week ago, I introduced a technique to my workouts which I believe have given me results in a relatively short period of time.

Coming to think of it, it’s not so much a technique as it is a process in how you train. I’m talking about time under tension, or TUT for short.

Nothing pains me more than seeing guys (and girls, although not as bad) training aimlessly, going through the motions while paying little or no attention to what they’re actually doing. And then they have the cheek to come up to me and ask me “what are you taking?” simply because they’re not seeing the results they’d hoped for. Sorry if I sound a little self-conceited, but it’s true!

Now, I know you’re not ignorant, but that’s not to say I can’t help you. More after the cut.

Topping Up Testosterone – Naturally!

The rate at which your body develops and builds muscle is dependent upon various factors, including hormones.

Indeed, countless studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between the male sex hormone testosterone and hypertrophy (an increase in the size of muscle cells). In other words, the more testosterone your body produces, the greater the potential for growth. Therefore, it’s unsurprising to see why some individuals go to great lengths to increase their testosterone levels – if you know what I mean.

If, like me, however, you’re looking for a more natural route towards elevating your testosterone and building lean muscle, then I urge you to read on. More after the cut.

Spicy Pan-Fried Tilapia

 

As promised, here is the recipe for the spicy pan-fried tilapia that I posted up on Facebook last night.

Bored of the usual grilled chicken, I decided to opt for some tilapia. Tilapia is a species of fish that is found in shallow freshwater ponds, streams and lakes. Due to its high protein, low fat-low carb content, tilapia has become a staple food for many health and fitness enthusiasts.

Somatotypes – What’s Your Body Type?

Before taking that first step towards a healthier lifestyle, there’s something you need to know: no two bodies are the same.

“Somatotype” is a term that refers to an individual’s body type, of which can fall into either one of three categories: an ectomorph, a mesomorph or an endomorph.

Typically, your somatotype has influence on both your diet and training, and for that reason it’s important that you know yours. More after the jump.

Protecting Your Skin From Winter│Q & A

 

Although this is Blogybuilding.com, I’ve always been open to answering questions about pretty much anything, so long as it can in some way or another be related to health and fitness. This week, I received an email from young lady who asked:

“Hi Aqil, great blog, keep it up. Apart from fitness, I also noticed that you have a good knowledge of the human body in general, and therefore I was wondering if you could give some advice in relation to skin. I don’t know what it is exactly but my skin (face) has become really dry. Are there any foods I can eat, or vitamins I can take which can help me? Thanks [sic].”

Great question, thank you! You can read my response after the cut.
