Buendia aims to surpass his eighth-place finish from the 2023 Olympia and regain his throne as he vies for his fifth Olympia title. His shoulder workout incorporates various supersets and accessory movements to enhance the shape and size of his medial and anterior delts.

Lubricate Them Quads

A sound warm-up is critical for any heavy-duty quad workout. To help you figure out a strategy that works for your own needs, German bodybuilder Mike Sommerfeld graced his fans with a YouTube video revealing his quad-dominant workout and thorough warm-up routine.

The three-time Classic Physique Olympia competitor kickstarts his warm-up by activating his hamstrings to lubricate his joints with synovial fluid that absorbs shocks and delivers nutrients while flushing away waste. Next, Sommerfeld does a quad stretch to prime the glutes, hips, ankles, knees, adductors, and hip flexors. Then, Sommerfeld does an exercise to boost hip flexibility and rid joint, tendon, and ligament stiffness.

Learn everything he does in his warm-up and the five moves he does afterward to build thicker legs. 


The Shadow's World

Dorian Yates, nicknamed "The Shadow," burst onto the bodybuilding scene like a comet in the early 1990s. Within a few short years, this British native had risen to unprecedented heights, becoming the undisputed top man in the sport. 

Over 25 years have passed since the six-time Mr. Olympia last donned his posing trunks. Still, the memory of his dominance lives on, as does his revolutionary training method, "Blood and Guts," which is all about high-intensity interval training (HIIT), focusing on fewer sets and heavy weights. 

Delve into Yates' inspiring journey as he transformed himself into an international icon in his sport and learn why he continues to inspire the current generation of bodybuilders.
