Sagittarius Horoscope for Sunday, October 12, 2014

Sunday, October 12, 2014 - You want to be completely objective when considering your alternatives today. It doesn't matter if you already have a destination in mind and a plan to get there; people can still throw you off course with all their wild and crazy ideas anyhow. You might discover that your goals are not as set in stone as you thought. But don't give up on your original agenda; it may be more relevant than you think. Entertain all possibilities for a while longer before narrowing your field of options.

Paramount Moves Forward With 'Baywatch' Movie (Exclusive) - Hollywood Reporter

Paramount has been trying to mount a  Baywatch  movie for years and has begun to ramp up its efforts. A number of previous writers have taken a crack at the script including Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan . At one point the action was set to revolve around a series of shark attacks that led the Baywatch team to investigate a drug-smuggling operation. It is unclear what Malen's take will be for the latest version.

Six Moves for a Shredded Six-Pack

Ah the six-pack. The goal of most every fitness enthusiast. A tight, lean, shredded stomach not only looks great, but also feels great and builds more confidence. Whether you're hitting the beach or hangin' by the pool, a chiseled midsection is something we all strive to strut. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to put in the time and effort to build this work of art. For those that do however, the rewards are well worth the struggle.

Top Protein Foods

Protein: it’s what’s for dinner—and breakfast and lunch. Instead of relying on old favorites like chicken and powders (which are great), add a little excitement and variety to your meal.

5-Step Fat Burning

As a fitness model and former successful natural bodybuilder, I have tried every diet in the book to get lean while holding on to muscle – carb backloading , carb cycling, ketogenic and even paleo. Each has its pros and cons. But just “dieting” isn’t enough. There are multiple branches of that tree and there are some particular training protocols that need to be observed along the way. The truth is that there are a number of factors that contribute to real fat-burning – the kind put on display by the guys you see on these pages. Here are five fundamental strategies that you can piece together to speed your shred .

Shocker: 20-Year Study Says That Marijuana Makes You Stupid

The drug has been linked to reduced learning, memory, and attention, and could also be addictive for some people. As if that weren’t enough to keep you away, the study also found that after smoking marijuana, you're twice as likely to die from crashing your car. Do yourself a favor and keep your body clean and drug-free.

Deadlifts with Sarah Grace

Train with fitness expert Sarah Grace. She takes you through three essential deadlifts.

The Best Single Kettlebell Workout

offers a distinct set of benefits from a pair. Your body will have to compensate for the imbalance by recruiting your core muscles more intensely, and working one side at a time will make for longer sets with a greater cardiovascular demand. Done as a circuit, the exercises that follow raise your heart rate even further, making this workout a great adjunct to a strict diet for fat loss.

Two Cycling Workouts to Rule the Road

You’ve rolled the  bike out of storage, pumped up the tires, and lubed the chain. Now the only thing standing between you and completing a 100-mile century ride or slaying the new singletrack at your local trail is your fitness level. You could commit to a months-long program of low-intensity workouts that slowly burn off winter fat while layering on the miles—or you could go the smart, efficient route, and do intervals.

AMP: Marc Megna's 8-Week Aesthetics Meets Performance Trainer

I know I'm not alone in these goals. I can't think of a single person who would rather look great than perform great, or vice versa. That's why I created the AMP program, or "Aesthetics Meets Performance." I want to live in both worlds, and I want you to do it with me. There's no reason to settle for anything less.

The Countdown-Your-Reps Workout

One muscle-building strategy is a concept known as time under tension (TUT). The idea is that the longer you can keep tension in your muscles during a set, the more you’ll exhaust them, forcing them to grow to adapt. One way to increase TUT is by doing more reps (duh). The other is to pause an exercise at a point in its range of motion and hold it for time. With countdown sets, you accomplish both simultaneously, delivering the maximum stimulus.

Get the Ultimate Upper Body Workout

Each and every one of us steps foot into the gym because we want to improve our physical selves. While we all might have different goals, the same theme exists for all of us…progression. Now, there are a few guys out there that get to body build for a living. Perhaps they've been lucky enough to gain major sponsorship or have lucrative contracts with a magazine and/or sports supplement manufacturer. These guys “get paid” to workout, so for them the gym is their office.

DISHED: New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski Shares What's on His Plate

It was fitting when New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught a short pass that would put Tom Brady over 50,000 passing years for his career. The connection had been made so many times when "Gronk" was becoming a star in Foxboro back in 2011. This time, the crowd would be chanting Brady's name. But the catch was also big for Gronkowski, who finished a Sunday night, 43-17 blowout win over Cincinnati with 100 receiving yards and a touchdown on six catches, the 25-year-old's best game so far in 2014. Gronkowski is finally healthy after recovering from offseason knee surgery. He acknowledged that being on the shelf, of course, forced him to pay special attention to his eating habits. So he shared with us exactly what's on his dinner plate in this edition of DISHED, a series in which top athletes tell us what they're eating and why.

A Year of Eating for Strength

While some of my practices may go against what some nutrition experts say, I’ve found this to work best for me. I’ve found that what looks good on paper and what’s practical in application aren’t always the same. The sweet spot is finding the balance that allows you to stay on track and enjoy life. Sure, tracking calories and macros may seem like a pain at first, but it really isn’t. Once you get your most common foods that aren’t already listed added to the app and you get a system in place, it takes less than five minutes a day to track your calories and macros. Sparing five minutes a day to stay on track with your nutrition is nothing. I don’t care how busy you are.

Fixing Common Mistakes in the Big Three Lifts

There are a few issues here. The main problem I see with intermediate lifters, is ego. They just don’t want to take a step or three back to attack their ultimate goal. Though the cerebral lifter sometimes focuses way too much on perfection. I’m not talking a total breakdown, just a little thing that they think is preventing them from going up in weight…like maybe, they loosen their grip a little as approaching lockout in bench…many will stay at a weight because it isn’t an absolutely perfect lift. So the fuck what? If you can lift 10 more pounds with only that little flaw, I say quit being scared to succeed…in a couple months after adding more total weight to the bar you’ll have a perfect rep at that previous weight. It’s like the first time you benched 225…first time I bet it wasn’t perfect, but I guarantee it is now. Anther problem, which isn’t necessarily their fault, is the lack of advanced or elite level lifters to help diagnose any breakdowns. I great coach is invaluable. Finally, wanting to get stronger before entering a contest.

5 Reasons to Start Meditating Now

Shut down your brain for 10 to 20 minutes every day and your life will drastically change for the better.


Problems arise when cheat meals get out of hand. For example, have you wondered what happens to your body if  you eat a high-carb, high-fat cheat meal or, simply have a standard high-fat, low-carb dinner but top it off with a higher carb treat (wine or chocolate)?

Best Workout Ever: Chest by Steve Reeves

A well-developed "thorax or rib-box" to support his brawny chest was high on Steve's chest-training priority list, too. To get it, he finished up his workout with breathing squats and breathing pullovers, which meant nothing more than performing squats and pullovers (one dumbbell in each hand) with a moderate weight while inhaling deeply. For example, on a set of 20, he'd do five reps on one very deep breath, followed by 10 reps on three deep breaths, then his last five reps on five breaths.

Diet 911: The Drinking Man’s Dilemma

First, supplement with N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) . One of the stresses that alcohol places on your liver is antioxidant depletion. Metabolizing alcohol uses up glutathione, an amino acid that serves as one of the body’s strongest free-radical fighters. Taking 500–600 milligrams of NAC daily can help replenish antioxidants while clearing out toxic metabolites that are generated by the liver’s breakdown of alcohol.

5 Tips for Building a Big Raw Squat - Juggernaut Training Systems

At the risk of sounding cliché, one of the most important variables for improving your squat is just plain old time. And I don’t mean 2 hours in the gym, I mean 2 years. Once the basic technique of squatting is attained, there is no magic trick to putting a bunch of weight on the exercise quickly. Yeah, you can alter your bench setup and eek some pounds off of that, and you can definitely work with a good coach on deadlift technique and hit some massive meet-to-meet PR improvements, but with the squat, it’s not quite the same. After you’ve gotten the technique down, there are no tricks… you just have to make your quads, glutes, hams, adductors, and back bigger, stronger, and more capable of exerting under heavy loads… that takes months and years, and means squat PRs can be expected steadily, but slowly, over time. This is important to note, because you’ll hear lifters complaining about how their squats have only gone up by 10 or 15lbs from meet to meet… and my first thought is… so what?! So long as it’s a steady and continual gain, that’s a great pace. I’m not sure about you guys, but I prefer slow, almost predictable gains over sporadic, magical “meet PR moments.

The Team elitefts Original Soundtrack

Boring and predictable, I know. I probably listen to these songs 80% of the time I train. When I train legs I listen to “Till I Collapse” over and over for every set on every single leg day.  I have had terrible back injuries so since the last one about a year and a half ago this song reminds me that no matter what, I will continue to train and find a way around my injuries. I almost feel that this song protects me for some odd reason and if I play a different song, I might injure myself again. Hey, it works for my psyche. I have also posed to “Lose Yourself” many times for shows. The words for all of these songs speak to my training or how I approach my training and bodybuilding. As often as I hear these songs, they never get old. My second online training DVD that I will start filming this winter will be titled, “Till I Collapse”.

The Zombie Apocalypse Workout

Also known as suicides, ladders increase your speed and improve your reaction time—skills that will be very handy when it's time to make a break for it. So head to an empty parking lot with four open spaces and see what you’ve got: Start with your feet and fingers on one of the lines, then sprint forward four spaces, bending down to touch the last line before running back. Vary the leg you start on, and compete against your best times with a stopwatch.

Healthy Recipes: 6 Protein-Packed Treats You'll Love! -

These are great. But that "wake me up shake"....I can do one better. I do a post morning workout/pre-breakfast protein shake. It's basically the same recipe but easier. I throw about 2 frozen bananas, a scoop of vanilla soy protein powder, a few spoons full of stevia, and cold brewed coffee (made the night before) into my Nutribullet. Sometimes I add a few ice cubes (like 5 ice cubes, not necessary when your bananas are frozen, but it changes the consistency a bit. Try it with and without and see what you prefer). This is my new morning coffee! I strong brew it too. So I get a super shot of caffeine, protein, and fruit. It's really good. Give it a try!

Three Body Weaknesses and How to Fix Them

See, even the best workout plans aren’t perfect—they can’t cover everything you need for a balanced, strong, and bulletproof body at once. Invariably, some muscles are neglected, and that creates imbalances. That’s why it’s important to periodically test yourself and assess what needs work. We asked Liz Lowe, C.S.C.S., head program designer for Ignite 360, a Sarasota, FL, gym that specializes in training clients with injuries , to prescribe three telling tests you can run on your body to identify weaknesses and DIY fixes to correct them fast.

Ask Men's Fitness: How Can I Tell If My Girlfriend Is "Faking It"?

Truth is, she may be. Perhaps only on rare occasions, perhaps more often. The problem is, there’s no real way for you to know for sure. Even if you ask her, what’s she going to say? So instead of worrying about if she is or isn’t engaging in bedroom theatrics, focus on making sex as satisfying as possible. That’s what you’re really going for at the end of the day anyway, right? Ask her what positions she likes, how she enjoys sex the most (fast, slow, rough, soft), and what her fantasies are. See if there’s anything you could do better or more often. Be aware of how she’s responding to you. What are you doing at the times she seems really into it? What actions seem to excite her?
