Here Is A First Look At The Nike Summer 2019 N7 Collection





Nike has given us a first look at their Nike Summer 2019 N7 Collection. Shown above, this year’s collection are centered around two new silhouettes designed by Tinker Hatfield: the Nike Zoom Heritage N7, a basketball shoe, and the Nike Air Zoom Down Rock N7, a skate-streetwear hybrid.
The idea to create the shoes came about when Nike N7 General Manager Sam McCracken approached Hatfield and asked if he’d bring his peerless approach to designing original footwear to the collection.

“I immediately thought, if I’m going to work on a basketball shoe and a multi-purpose shoe, that I would start from scratch and do it with a certain criteria and give it the same energy that I would in designing for a professional athlete,” says Hatfield. “It’s ended up being one of my favorite projects at Nike.”

The Nike Zoom Heritage N7 is built for “rez ball,” a style of basketball played in tribal communities and elsewhere, and known for its physicality, fast-paced nature and pressure defense. The Nike Air Zoom Down Rock N7, a skate-streetwear silhouette driven by Paul Rodriguez lineage, features suede for its durability and its versatility to go straight into a dressed-down look.

In their designs, the two silhouettes establish a broader connection to the Native American community, fulfilling an aim of the Nike N7 mission — inspiring the community to be the truest version of itself.

The Nike Summer 2019 N7 Collection will also include traditional models of the Cortez and Air Max 270 along with a capsule of apparel.

Look for the Nike Summer 2019 N7 Collection to release on June 21 on nike.com and at select retailers. Proceeds will go toward the N7 Fund, which helps organizations provide sport and physical activity programming to kids in Native American and Aboriginal communities.

Martins Licis Dethrones Thor Bjornsson at World’s Strongest Man 2019

After four grueling days of monster truck pulls, yoke carries, and stone loads, the 2019 World’s Strongest Man has been crowned.

Martins Licis, a 28-year-old from the USA, won the Bradenton, FL event. Mateusz Kieliszkowski of Poland earned second place (and an unofficial first for having the hardest name to pronounce), and Hafthor Bjornsson (Iceland), who suffered a foot injury during Day One, took third.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Winners circle. #WSM 🏆

A post shared by The World’s Strongest Man (@theworldsstrongestman) on

Bjornsson, aka The Mountain, wasn’t the only competitor to suffer an injury. Great Britain’s Laurence Shahlaei and Iceland’s Sigfus Fossdal both tore their Achilles tendons and dropped out of the competition on Day One. Then, during a head-to-head 441-pound Atlas stone load for max reps on Day Three, American Robert Oberst tore his bicep, which you can see below.

For Licis, who placed second at the Arnold Strongman Classic in March, this is a monumental victory that has cemented him as a dominant competitor for years to come. For four-time World’s Strongest Man winner Brian Shaw, who placed sixth, this could be a sign of slowing down. After all, Shaw is 37, almost a decade older than Licis and seven years older than Bjornsson (who won WSM last year).

Here are the official placings, compliments of barbend.com.

Russia’s Bizarre New ‘Booty Slapping’ Competition Promises It’s Really All About Lower-Body Strength

The Internet is catching on to a new slap-happy Russian competition in which female fitness enthusiasts take turns slapping each other’s butts. This booty-smacking match is officially titled the “Russian Female Slap Contest” and is apparently the female equivalent of the “Male Slap Contest,” which sees men go at one another slap-for-slap (to the face) until someone cries uncle. During the booty-centric variation of the competition, the women aim to knock their opponents off balance, according to Fox News.

Don’t believe us? You can watch highlights on YouTube here:

The event reportedly debuted for the first time this year at the Yashankin Cup bodybuilding competition. A spokesperson for the Generation Iron Network, who was in charge of media for the event, told Fox that all of the competitors work as fitness influencers and models, but that the slap contest was open to anyone who wanted to participate.

It hasn’t been reported what the booty-slap champ would actually win, but two women receive what appear to be gift bags in the video. One of them was model Anastasia Zolotaya, who boasts more than 475K followers on Instagram.

Оба факта абсолютная правда. И да, если у вас большое количество молочной железы у вас тоже грудь будет худеть меньше, чем у остальных. А пластику пока делать не планирую ⠀ •в школе я избивала мальчиков))) Ровно как и сама получала. Ровесники нормально давали сдачи , а вот мелких можно было позадирать. Вообще в школьное время я помню много интересных баталий, например была ситуация ,когда мы стали драться с девочкой рюкзаками , а у неё шов после аппендицита разошёлся… 😐 ⠀ •я 2 раза заводила YouTube канал, снимала ролики, но бросала. Хочу, но не могу работать без команды. И очень сложно, когда не можешь заглянуть в будущее и посмотреть, что из этого получится ⠀ •моя последние отношения завязались со слов «привет, как ты?»

In the age of social media, we can only wonder what strange new fitness trend will go viral next. Until then, we can enjoy YouTube videos of Instagram influencers slapping each other on the rump—ya know, to show off their lower-body strength and stability.

AEW to Offer Wrestlers Health Insurance, Chris Jericho Says


Chris Jericho

Bobby Bank / Getty

All Elite Wrestling will offer its wrestlers health insurance benefits, unlike the WWE, according to Chris Jericho in an appearance on “The World According to Jesse,” with Jesse “The Body” Ventura.

“AEW has health care and dental for the performers,” Y2J told the former wrestler and Minnesota governor. “You’re talking about a big sports team mentality instead of the every man for himself mentality the business had for years.”

Although the outcome of their matches might be scripted, many of the injuries wrestlers suffer are not. Performers have chipped teeth, been busted wide open and, in many cases, torn muscles or broken bones mid-match. The physicality demanded of them often comes at a great cost, in more ways than one.

For years, the WWE has come under fire for its treatment of Superstars, most recently by John Oliver in a 23-minute segment on Last Week Tonight. The WWE hires Superstars as exclusive independent contractors, meaning they can’t work for anyone else but they’re still not employees of the company.

Additionally, WWE doesn’t offer health insurance, though it does pay for surgeries if a Superstar gets injured while performing. Ventura asked Jericho if that would change in AEW, or “is it going to continue slave labor in wrestling?”

[RELATED1]

Jericho, who will face Adam “Hangman” Page on Aug. 31 in a bout to crown the inaugural AEW World Heavyweight Champion, said he’s an employee of AEW, an aspect that attracted him to the company from the promotion he spent more than 18 years in.

“From a business standpoint, there was no choice,” he said. “AEW was better across the board, from the guarantee I was given, the contract I was given, the employee status, the healthcare.”

At first, it appeared the healthcare benefits would only be available to AEW in-ring talent who were also company executives, like Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks. In May, Rhodes said other wrestlers would receive similar benefits. “There are several wrestlers outside the [executive vice president] element that are going to receive benefits and health care,” Rhodes told Bleacher Report. “That’s a first for wrestling, and these are slow and steady steps and I’m super proud.”

AEW owner and President Tony Khan—who also owns the Jacksonville Jaguars and English soccer club Fulham FC— has also said he’s looking to have a lighter schedule than the WWE, thereby putting less strain on the wrestlers’ bodies.

Numerous WWE Superstars are looking to jump ship to AEW, per various websites, and Jericho believes the offer of healthcare benefits might be one reason for that. “There’s a lot more of that going on, and I think that’s going to continue to grow, which will force eventually WWE to follow suit, or else everybody will want to leave to come to AEW, which is already happening anyway,” he said.

Amanda Lawrence Sets 3 World Records, Wins IPF Worlds


Amanda Lawrence Wins 2019 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships

theipf / Instagram

American powerlifter Amanda Lawrence walked away from her first IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships a very happy camper. The 84-kg lifter clinched a big win over fellow American Daniella Melo, and set three world records along the way. 

The pair’s face-off was incredibly hyped ahead of the competition, and boy, did they deliver. Their combined efforts reset all of the world records (squat, bench press, deadlift, and total weight lifted). Their totals ended up being the same, but the deciding factor was Lawrence’s slightly lower body weight—emphasis on slightly. Lawrence weighed in at 83.05kg (183.1 pounds), while Melo weighed in at 83.55kg (184.2 pounds), according to the official scoresheet.

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

WHAT A SESSION! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amanda and Daniella reset all the world records, but it was Amanda who walked away with the gold medal overall on body weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amanda’s lifts: Squat – 243kg/536lb WR 🥇 Bench – 117.5kg/259lb Deadlift – 252.5kg/556lb WR🥇 Total – 613kg/1351lb WR🥇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Daniella’s lifts: Squat – 230kg/507lb 🥈 Bench – 137kg/302lb WR 🥇 Deadlift – 246kg/542lb 🥈 Total – 613kg/1351lb 🥈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re so proud of them! Swipe for videos of the world record lifts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #usapowerlifting #usapl #LIFTCLEAN #whyicompete #a7intl #a7 #sbd #titansupportsystems #rpstrength

A post shared by USA Powerlifting® (USAPL) (@usapowerlifting) on

 

Aside from the overall win, Lawrence set a squat world record with 536 pounds, a deadlift world record with 556 pounds, and set the record for most weight lifted overall with 1,351 pounds.

 

 

 

 

For Melo’s part, she absolutely crushed it on the bench, setting a new world record with a 302-pound lift.

 

 

She also totaled an incredible 1,351 pounds, but again, Lawrence took the record by virtue of her lower weight.

Both women did a solid job of representing the USA at the international competition, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. It surely won’t be the last time they compete, and there’s no doubt they’ll keep it exciting as they strive for more wins and world records.

The Ultimate Workout for Wider, Stronger Shoulders

Dumbbell Front Raise Static Hold

Tauseef Asri / M+F Magazine

Olympic and professional athletes have them. So do bodybuilders, longshoremen, lumberjacks, and pretty much anyone we innately identify as a pillar of strength. In fact, of all the muscle groups, it is the one that most clearly distinguishes a longtime athlete from a guy who’s just figuring out the whole gym thing. It’s the deltoids, aka shoulders, and with a broad, meaty pair, you, too, can carry the mantle of being distinctly athletic.

The Routine

This routine should be done at a quick pace, with no more than 30 seconds of rest between sets. Because the deltoids are a fairly small muscle group and the shoulder joint is susceptible to injury, it’s best to keep the weight moderate and the reps generally on the high side, as in 10 to 20. The entire routine should take you no more than a half-hour to perform, and you should do it twice per week.

You’ll notice that every exercise in this routine is performed seated. There are two reasons for that: 1) Most shoulder exercises are conducive to body English; we tend to swing the dumbbells as we tire during lateral and front raises and excessively arch our backs during presses. 2) We expend more energy stabilizing through each rep of exercises in which we stand. By sitting, we can channel all our resources for the task at hand.

How Tuzar Skipper Made His NFL Dreams a Reality


How Tuzar Skipper Made His NFL Dreams a Reality

Kyle Lieberman / M+F Magazine

Unlike with the Gronks and Mannings of the world, football wasn’t ingrained in Tuzar Skipper’s family tradition, but it’s clearly in his DNA. “It was something I wanted to do in high school,” Skipper says. “I didn’t have a football background, so I was just jumping right into it. It was one of those stories—you try it and it turns out you’re pretty good at it, so I just continued with it.”

It wasn’t long before his natural talent, coupled with his imposing 6’3″, 250-pound frame, had him turning heads at the University of Toledo, where he and his coaches began setting their sights on pro-level dreams. “I knew it was kind of far-fetched, but hey, might as well shoot for the stars,” Skipper says.

He credits much of his athletic development to the TEST Football Academy in Martinsville, NJ, and supplementing with CarnoSyn. “My goals were to get bigger, faster, and stronger. At TEST, they helped me do exactly that,” Skipper explains. “Kevin Dunn is the overseer of things there, and he’s just a scientist when it comes to building strength and conditioning. He helped me understand the science behind the sport.”

Dunn carefully prescreens TEST athletes to tailor training and nutrition programs that involve grueling schedules of six days a week with two sessions a day, plus he creates custom meal preps based on their weight and body-comp goals. Dunn also starts all his athletes on a supplementation program. “Supplements containing CarnoSyn and SR CarnoSyn beta-alanine have been our secret weapon,” Dunn says. “Beta-alanine is a lactic acid buffer, allowing athletes to push through barriers we never thought possible.”

The mentorship from TEST combined with CarnoSyn took Skipper’s strength and physique gains to new heights. “In just four months supplementing with CarnoSyn, I’ve definitely gotten stronger. I have a lot more energy, and I’m more fired up,” Skipper says. “I started at 19 reps for the 225-pound bench press, and now I’m at 31. I went in weighing 236 pounds, and now I’m at 250. Plus, the recovery is so much easier with CarnoSyn. It helps me get back to training the next day right where I left off.”

Skipper’s hard work and planning are paying off—in May, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers after attending the team’s three-day rookie minicamp.

Dunn sees Skipper as the model for what a program like TEST and proper supplementation can do for an athlete’s performance. “Tuzar is the perfect example of how we took an athlete already in great shape and pushed him through barriers and plateaus he never before achieved,” Dunn says.

Athlete Spotlight: Lenda Murray, 8-Time Ms. Olympia Champion


Athlete Spotlight: Lenda Murray, 8-Time Ms. Olympia Champion

Sponsored Content

It’s an early spring morning. As I sit on my porch meditating and enjoying my view of Los Angeles, I contemplate the journey of my life. I reflect with gratitude on what a blessed life I’ve lived. Combing through the memories of my career in bodybuilding, I ponder many things: the questions people ask me about my eight Ms. Olympia titles, what inspired me to pursue a career in bodybuilding, and what life as a champion is like after the applause ends.

I was introduced to the world of women’s bodybuilding when I found a copy of Joe Weider’s Muscle & Fitness magazine on a high school bus. Curiously flipping from page to page, I came across a picture of Carla Dunlap, the reigning Ms. Olympia champion. I had never seen such incredible upper-body muscularity on a woman. Interested and intrigued, I found this type of strength in a woman to be attractive. At that time in the late 1970s, female bodybuilders had the level of muscularity that we see on figure competitors today. My ambitious nature encouraged me to think outside the box, and my curiosity peaked as I contemplated how I would look if I were to train with weights. Little did I know that fate would soon intervene to answer that question.

As a young lady growing up in Detroit, education and athletics were my top priorities. My main goal in life was to graduate from college, and my second goal was to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. In 1984, I graduated from Western Michigan University, accomplishing my first goal. And when I made the cut as one of 45 girls selected for the upcoming Dallas Cowboys season, it appeared I was well on my way to my second goal. However, due to a conflict of interest between the NFL and the USFL Michigan Panthers, I was told to return the following year. I was also told to lose weight before returning for the next NFL season. The problem, however, was that I was athletic, not overweight. A bodybuilding analogy would be that I had the muscle mass of a physique competitor, versus a bikini competitor.

I was disappointed to see the door closing on my dreams of professional cheerleading—but a new and marvelous adventure was about to begin for me. I decided to embrace the physique I was given and enter the world of women’s bodybuilding. After a few years competing in local contests, I turned pro in 1989. I also had the fortunate opportunity to be introduced to Joe Weider, the man whose magazine I found on that bus back in high school. I went on to win six consecutive Ms. Olympia titles. I then retired from the sport for five years to pursue business and entrepreneurial interests. But in 2002, at age 40, I returned to the competitive arena to compete for and win the Ms. Olympia title two more times, making me an eight-time Ms. Olympia title winner.

Retirement from competition has been good to me. I currently produce two IFBB Pro League Olympia-qualifier shows and three NPC National-qualifier shows, being held on July 13 in Norfolk, VA, August 17 in Detroit, MI, and an exciting addition just announced for April 2020 in Savannah, GA. The most rewarding part of being a contest promoter is sending pro athletes to the Olympia stage and pro female bodybuilders to the IFBB Professional League Wings of Strength Rising Phoenix World Championship. As the main sponsor of my events, Wings of Strength has helped make them all great successes. And for the first time in 2019, Wings of Strength is sponsoring the Olympia Weekend.

Currently, I’m the owner of Crystal Planet Nutrition, the spokeswoman for Wings of Strength, and a senior editor at Digital Muscle. I am excited about what the future holds for the women of bodybuilding, and I’m embracing all the wonderful opportunities the sport has given me.

BORN: February 22, 1962; Detroit, Michigan

While James didn’t actually describe the featured model as the LeBron 17, multiple sources have already confirmed that the purported sneaker is indeed the successor to the Nike LeBron 16, which debuted in Fall 2018. As the preview images suggest, the forthcoming silhouette boasts a fully knitted construction in a Black and Grey colorway, which features a prominent pattern throughout its side panels.
