A New Approach To Fat Loss Nutrition - Born Fitness

Sure, if you eat less you’re likely to lose some weight. But eating less usually means changing habits, such as what you eat, when you eat, or how much you stress about each and every meal. So eating less really isn’t just eating less; it’s making more decisions that trigger a series of reactions.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, January 3, 2015

Sunday, January 4, 2015 - Handling criticism isn't easy for anyone, but it can be exceptionally tough on you Archers when your sunny optimism is cast in the shadows of doubt. The Cancer Full Moon shining in your 8th House of Deep Sharing reflects your uncharacteristic emotional intensity. You won't be satisfied today unless you schedule time to sink into the unknown watery realms. Thankfully, you don't have to take this journey alone. Accepting advice from others without letting it shake your confidence empowers you to make constructive changes and then get on with what's next.

Muscle in Minutes: Shoulders

Building well-capped shoulders , some would say, takes years and years of heavy pressing and experimentation. Those folks aren’t entirely wrong but it’s not exactly what you want to hear if you’re already behind the curve in this department. By training your delts with a simple, exercise-minimal routine, twice per week, you can start to make up ground on the lifetime pressers pretty quickly. Delts are fast to respond to proper overload and they can handle a reasonable amount of volume. So even if you can’t overhead press 250 pounds for 3-4 reps, you can still reap some appreciable gains from a more conservative press-first approach.

5 Muscle-Building Breakfasts

How many times have you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Not to sound like a broken record, but it is. What you eat in the morning sets your energy levels for the day, revs up your metabolism, and fuels muscle growth. So, what are your best options for the a.m. hours? With the help of model-turned-chef Candice Kumai , author of Cook Yourself Sexy , we’ve come up with five delicious, protein-packed breakfasts to feed those pythons.

Get on Board for a Bigger Bench

Huge overload can take place with board presses because they allow you to lift more than your one-rep max. The bench press has an ascending strength curve, meaning the closer the barbell is to lockout the more force production is possible; in other words, you are weakest at the bottom and strongest at the top.

3 Months to Mass

On rest days , your calorie consumption will drop as you throttle back on carbs and protein. Your fat intake, however, will go up, specifically healthy fat, which is important for joint recovery. Moreover, when you’re trying to add mass and drop bodyfat at the same time, you have to trick your body into getting bigger. These variable-calorie days do just that, preventing the body from adjusting to the same intake levels. On these days, you’ll eat about 16 calories per pound of bodyweight, or just less than 3,000 calories. Your protein numbers will be slightly more than 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight, or about 300 grams, while your carb intake will plummet to less than 1 gram per pound of bodyweight, or about 170 grams. Fat levels rise to just more than 0.5 gram per pound of bodyweight, or slightly more than 100 grams.

How to Design the Perfect Circuit

Whether you're crunched for time or simply need to shake up your current workout program, circuit training is your answer. Defined as performing one exercise after another with minimal to no rest in between, circuit training is one of the most effective ways to maximize your workout time. And circuit training is just as effective for the beginning as it is for the advanced since it can all be scaled to challenge you according to your individual fitness level and goals.

The Perfect Ab-Ripping Cardio Workout

Perform any low-intensity activity, such as walking, cycling, or stair–stepping. Keep your heart rate between 120 and 150 beats per minute. You can use a heart-rate monitor to track it, or measure the pulse in your neck with your fingers: Count the beats for six seconds, then multiply by 10 to approximate the number of beats in one minute.

10 Foods to Lower Bad Cholesterol

The leading cause of death in the United States, cardiovascular disease is the result of various symptoms and genetic predispositions. Hyperlipemia, or having high levels of lipids (fats) such as cholesterol and triglycerides, in the blood is a significant factor in developing heart disease. While weight loss, exercise, and diet can help raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels and lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, there are also specific compounds in foods that can work to protect your heart by promoting healthy cholesterol levels.

23
Superhero Abs

There’s no doubting that conventional ab exercises like the crunch strengthen the abs, but they also pull your spine out of position, which can set you up for lower-back pain down the line. Use the Superman pushup in place of crunching movements, and you’ll build not only heroic abs, but an iron core  that will strengthen other lifts like the overhead press and squat.

Hot Water Debate: How Much Water Do You Need?

Those carrying more muscle need more water for adequate hydration (muscle contains more water). If you're exercising, expect to drink more too. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends getting in about 20 ounces before exercise, 10 ounces every 15 minutes of exercise—40 ounces for an hour workout—and about 32 ounces after. That alone is 92 ounces of water for anyone who workouts daily, well over the 64-ounce (eight, eight-ounce glasses of water) helping recommended by the Telegraph. Research shows that as little as a 2% decrease in body weight (from water loss) can cause significant decreases in muscle endurance and muscle strength.

This Trick Will Help You Reach Any Fitness Goal

Sharing this goal publicly only raises the stakes by further linking your social identity - which, let’s be honest, most of us care a lot about - to the accomplishment of your goal.  In his best selling book, Influence , Cialdini writes that:   “Once an active commitment is made (publicly), then, self-image is squeezed from both sides by consistency pressures. From the inside, there is a pressure to bring self-image into line with action. From the outside, there is a sneakier pressure – a tendency to adjust this image according to the way others perceive us. And because others see us as believing what we have written, we will really experience a pull to bring self-image into line with the written statement.”

5 Unique Shrugs to Get You Yoked

Set the crash bars on a squat rack at about mid-thigh level. Unlike a conventional bar shrug the resistance will actually be behind you. This slight deviation stresses the mid traps more than a standard bar shrug. Hand placement on the bar can also serve as a way to recruit different parts of your traps. Try it with a close grip, shoulder width grip and just inside of a snatch grip to really tax the upper back from different areas. Perform 3 sets of 20-25 reps.

Train Over 40: Classic Muscle Workout

More important than any one approach, however, is the discipline to stick with it. “Everybody responds differently to dieting,” says Sweet. “After all these years of trial and error, I found that a very traditional bodybuilding diet worked for me. But you have to stick to it. And that can be hard, because it’s very boring. When friends want to go out for drinks after work, I don’t drink. You have to make a choice.”

Should I Have Sex With My Girlfriend at Her Parents’ House?

Assuming she’s cool with it and her parents won’t castrate you, go for it—as long as you do it quietly. Choose times of day—before you go to bed, before you’re out of bed in the morning—to make the act less conspicuous. Disappearing after lunch for a “nap” that turns into a liaison is a tacky move around her family. So: If the fam won’t freak and you can be discreet, then yes, you can have sex with your girlfriend at her parents’ house.

4 Things to Know About H20

A few years ago Michael Boschmann, M.D., and colleagues from Berlin's Franz-Volhard Clinical Research Center found that after drinking about 17 ounces of water, the metabolic rates of the study's participants increased by 30%. And the researchers estimated that if a person increases his water consumption by 1.5 liters (51 ounces) a day, he would burn an extra 17,400 calories per year. That's about five pounds just from drinking more water. Additionally, a study by Dr. Brenda Davy, an associate professor at Virginia Tech, found that people who drank water before a meal consumed an average of 75 fewer calories at that meal.

Classic Workouts

Even names like Steve Reeves, Bill Pearl and Reg Park — as popular and influential as they were within the bodybuilding community — weren’t enough to spark the revolution that turned their sport from sideshow to main event. What bodybuilding needed was a kind of “perfect storm” of people, place and timing that equaled more than just the sum of its parts — to transcend other niche activities such as sword swallowing and move it into the realm of mainstream cultural phenomena. Fortunately for us, such a confluence would occur, in the late 1960s in Southern California, under the Machiavellian influence of Joe Weider, without whom it’s doubtful the amazing events taking place would ever have made their way beyond the sunny shores of the Pacific at Venice Beach.

On Trial: Bands vs. Cables For Growth

Although you should regularly include strength bands in your training, we are not saying to replace cable exercises with bands. Instead, use bands in place of some of your cable exercises from time to time. Bands will help you build better strength and muscle power, as well as place greater emphasis on certain areas of the muscles.

5 Powerful, Protein-Rich Recovery Meals

Research has consistently shown that consuming protein and carbs after a weight-training workout can speed recovery and optimize muscle gains. But the so-called window for this nutrition doesn’t necessarily close within an hour (or even two or three hours, it turns out), as popular broscience would have you believe. According to a 2013 review, consuming a proteinrich, whole-food meal eaten up to six hours after a workout is sufficient to maximize gains, the  Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition  reported. Whip up any of the following high-protein, nutrient-dense meals in the hours following your workout, and rest assured you’re getting the most out of your training.

Training Styles: Freestyle

In 2008, FLEX introduced a new concept to training— freestyle. In an era of freestyle rap, freestyle skateboarding,  and even freestyle running (parkour, anyone?), some bodybuilders  improvise and innovate their way through their workouts.  Kai Greene has been at the forefront of this method. Sometimes  it’s difficult to tell which body part the Mr. Olympia runner-up is  training, because he’ll incorporate work for other muscles and  include unorthodox moves like handstands. However, it was after  observing a Brandon Curry workout in the summer of 2008 that I  brought the freestyle label to bodybuilding.

“One” has a bad rep. “One-dimensional.” “One-sided.” “One-trick pony.” We’re constantly told that “one” lacks depth and that “two” is twice as good as its fellow integer.
