Mass and Shred Podcast: Episode 78: Get Big on a Budget

Tracy and Mike talk about how to get big on a budget. Find out the secrets to purchasing the rights foods at the best prices. It is possible to get a full week’s of food to meet your macros for under $50 per week including your protein, carbs and fats.

We also start our question of the week to put out there to our listeners. This week’s question is What was the single greatest thing you have learned about fitness this year and where did you learn it from?

Recipe of the Week: Chicken Pad Thai

Exercise of the Week: Cable Incline Pushdown

Lie on incline an bench facing away from a high pulley machine that has a straight bar attachment on it.

Grasp the straight bar attachment overhead with a pronated (overhand; palms down) shoulder width grip and extend your arms in front of you. The bar should be around 2 inches away from your upper thighs. This will be your starting position.

Keeping the upper arms stationary, lift your arms back in a semi circle until the bar is straight over your head. Breathe in during this portion of the movement.

Slowly go back to the starting position using your lats and hold the contraction once you reach the starting position. Breathe out during the execution of this movement.

Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Variations: You can also use an angled attachment or a rope attachment as well. Finally, you can perform one arm at a time by using a single handle attachment.
