Learn to Love the Iron
Learn to love the iron. It’s your only tool to transfer your inner lean, chiseled you from your mind to your surface. With the constant work you’ll learn about life, about you, about your feelings, your drive and your desires. It’s exercise for the soul. You’ll find struggles and challenges, you’ll overcome them all, you’ll have to find ways around your obstacles, face dilemmas and catch 22's, and even though you periodically will wish it was all an easy road to walk without turning around or having to take a path less traveled, you’ll soon be thankful for the wisdom and education. There’s a sense of accomplishment and self satisfaction to gain from commitment.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, October 2, 2014
Thursday, October 2, 2014 - You may have to stand up to a powerful adversary today because your plan is contrary to the consensus of the group. Unfortunately, your friends or coworkers might be too quick to choose the easy way out of a difficult situation. They don't understand your resistance now as you adhere to your core values. Although your unwavering idealism is admirable, don't be so obstinate that you cannot see the common ground you're already standing on.
The Arnold Press and Shoulder Workout
Of Arnold’s many accomplishments, this one doesn’t rank particularly high. Still, not only did it allow him to name an exercise after himself—the Arnold Press—it’s a uniquely effective move. While Arnold was experimenting with ways to spark new shoulder growth , he reinvented the overhead press, twisting the palms from facing backward to facing forward. He found that this better targets your front delts than conventional overhead presses. Like its namesake, this exercise travels a unique path. Add it to your shoulder routine.
Choosing the Right Bench Press Grip
Using a narrower grip on the bar - where the index fingers are on the inside smooth part of the bar – will target the triceps and be much easier on your shoulders. If you can’t keep your chest up when benching, this narrow grip bench press variation can create a lot of stress on the anterior (front) part of your shoulders, as I describe in this video.
Power Bodybuilding: Shock and Awesome Biceps
They might be 20 inches around now, but even for years after I started training, my arms were one of my weakest body parts. Because I started out with a powerlifting approach to training, I didn’t give much dedicated attention to my biceps. Then, when I did start training them specifically, they didn’t respond in the way I wanted. Frustrated, I started overtraining. When I finally gave my arms a break, they blew up like balloons.
12 Laws of Fat-Burning
No question about it, burning fat is a 24/7 endeavor. To keep the fires hot, you need to eat every 2-3 hours throughout the day. Not only that, but you must choose the right foods in the right amounts to keep your metabolism revved up so your six-pack will be ready for its close-up. The way we see it, there are 12 fundamentals - laws, if you will - that are all you need to shed that unwanted blubber from your midsection and elsewhere. Most of them are nutrition-driven, but training comes into play as well. Your mass-gaining phase is over for the time being; now it's time to get lean. These 12 laws of fat-burning will help get you there.
Leg Exhausting Routine for Building Bigger Wheels
Some people actually look forward to leg day, but for most it’s last on their list of training priorities, which explains why many men have large, strong upper bodies supported by pencil-thin legs. If you find yourself wearing pants at the gym more often than shorts, the following workout will give you some newfound confidence just in time for the beach this summer. If you don’t train your trunks, you can’t expect them to grow. And if you don’t train them hard – simply going through the motions won’t cut it – it will take much longer to see results, if you ever see them at all. In other words, it’s time to buckle down below the belt.
Ask Men's Fitness: How Often Should I Wash My Hair?
With shampoo, the honest-to-God truth? Only once a week. Overshampooing strips the oils from your scalp and hair. and when that happens, the sebaceous gland is going to either pump out way too much oil, which makes your hair supergreasy, or say, “Fuck this, Jack: I’m not going to pump any oil out—it’s too dry already.” Then you get dry scalp and dandruff. A week seems crazy long, but trust me. You know how, when you get back from the bar, you look in the mirror and you’re like, “My hair is finally perfect!”? That’s because it’s got sweat and natural oils in it. One thing you should do every day is use conditioner. We wash our hair mainly because of smell and dirt, right? Well, conditioner has enough of a cleansing agent to it that it’ll take those out— but it’ll leave the good oils behind. But if using shampoo less makes you feel like a bum…Well, then you’ve got other problems, brother.
Top 10 Muscle and Strength Building Moves
While everyone who goes to the gym to lift weights has their own set of specific goals, one common thread that runs through most is the desire to get bigger and stronger . Bodybuilders are unique bunch in that they look to build every muscle in the body to the greatest possible degree, while trying to make sure everything remains in perfect proportion and symmetry. Because of this they must utilize a myriad of specific and varied exercises for each body part, so that every muscle fiber and motor unit pool is exhausted at every workout.
Four Whole Grains You Haven't Tried
No sooner had you figured out how to pronounce the word quinoa (KEEN-wah, FYI) than a dozen more hard-to-pronounce whole grains started hitting your grocer’s shelves. Among the latest crop of soon-to-be-trendy carb sources to offer a host of healthy benefits—like fending off heart disease, diabetes, and obesity—are grains like freekeh and amaranth. There’s also barley, perhaps best known for making beer. To find out what makes these “new” whole grains better than, say, a trusty bowl of brown rice, we took to the kitchen—and even discovered some additional benefits along the way (to name a few: a milder effect on blood sugar, and unique compounds like vision-boosting lutein and muscle-building lysine). And now, three great recipes to work these superfoods into your diet this fall. 10 Superfoods for 2014>>>

Between work , family obligations, and the occasional weekly hangout with the guys, finding time to meet all of your health and fitness goals can prove to be quite challenging.

5 Ways to Amp Up Muscle Growth
If your program calls for 5 sets of 5 reps (25 total reps) and you're able to hit additional reps on the first few sets, don't stop at 5! For example, your “5 sets of 5 reps” may end up looking like 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 or 6, 6, 5, 4, 4. Regardless, go by how you feel and use as many or as few sets possible to complete all 25 reps.

How to Watch Porn Together
Once the Footage Starts… When the steamy vid starts rolling, a lot of couples can’t help jumping right into sex. “There’s nothing wrong with this strategy,” Morse says. “But it’s fun to also set some ground rules to keep things new and exciting.” She recommends agreeing to wait until the credits role or the scene ends before turning your attention to each other. “Delaying the act will make you both so aroused,” she promises. She also advises cuddling and caressing each other while you watch. Once you’ve got the hang of things, one of you could pleasure the other while the video rolls. Or you could try different rear entry positions so you can both watch while you have sex, Morse adds. 7 Must-Have Sex Talks>>>

10 Essential Rules of Good Health
When it comes to achieving overall well-being, you need to balance many key aspects of health, including diet, exercise, sleep, professional care and socialization. Even just remembering to smile is a way to stay healthy and keep your blood pressure down, notes Dr. Steven Lamm, director of the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health at New York University Langone Medical Center, and author of No Guts, No Glory: Gut Solution—The Core of Your Total Wellness Plan.
Food Color Trumps Flavor
And there’s something to be said for the novelty factor as well. “A black burger in Japan is probably not going to make people react badly to regular Burger King burgers in the United States,” Garber says. “Everyone understands food is strongly culturally based.” Which is perhaps why we’re so fascinated by the black burger in the first place—it gives us a window into another culture, even if we ourselves won’t be trying them anytime soon.
Wrestling with Muscle - The Bodybuilding Wrestling Connection
For many, the first significant connection between bodybuilding and pro-wrestling can actually be traced back as far as the 1960’s. Although there had already been massively built wrestlers lifting weights, none had the physique of one ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham.
Size Secret #4: Shorten Your Range of Motion
But one technique that really helped me, especially on inclines, was to stay in a certain ‘window’ of the range of motion. I don’t lock out my elbows at the top of the rep and I don’t come down all the way and touch my chest at the bottom. I stop just short of full range of motion on both ends to keep constant tension on the muscles. I think that has really helped my upper-chest development.”
Ask Men's Fitness: How Do I Get the Perfect Amount of Scruff?
If you have a good, full shadow by the end of a typical day, then be sure to stop shaving exactly 48 hours prior to your date, advises Brendan Murdock, the founder and owner of the eponymous grooming salon in London. If you're not imbued with Wookiee DNA, he says, give it at least one more day or half-day. "Keep in mind that most are not particularly fond of short, prickly stubble," Murdock says. So, if your beard is really slow, don't shave after Wednesday morning.

There's even a science behind the songs he picked! A song's tempo and rhythm are determined by Beats-Per-Minute (BPMs). BPMs create the timing for the movements and each of Jake’s compilations is produced to match the level of intensity of a particular workout. When the user's pace coincides with the BPMs, it increases endurance, thereby producing a stronger and longer workout.

This Simple Measurement Is Better Than BMI
As the Daily Mail reports , researchers arrived at the formula by analyzing statistics for 300,000 adults. They found that every inch of flab over the 50% mark indicated lower life expectancy. Men with waistlines that are 80% of their heights, for example, can expect to die 20 years sooner than those with the healthy 50% ratio.
8 Ways to Burn More Fat
Getting cut and defined isn’t just about calorie counting. Heck, if that were true, anyone and everyone could get lean easily. While modifying your total calorie intake certainly plays a major role, the key to successful fat loss lies in strategies that actually alter your body’s metabolism.
Cluster Set Training for Strength and Size
Now, you may be saying to yourself, “this sounds a lot like rest-pause training ,” and it is similar; but there are some differences. Both methods take advantage of your body’s explosive energy stores and their ability to replenish quickly but in the rest-pause method of training you have a set load and that load (or more precisely, the fatigue it induces) dictates the volume. In cluster set training you have a set volume and load that are pre-determined. Also, while in rest-pause training fatigue is a big goal, during cluster sets this is not the focus.

How to Age-Proof Your BodyWhile You're Still Young
"When I retired at age 37, I said, 'I'm going to dunk at least once a year, just to see if I can do it.' And it's getting difficult. It's not an easy thing to do. I have to loosen up, warm up, stretch. And there've been a couple of times I missed before I got to the make. Last time, when I got it in at age 63, I got involved in a three-on-three because I have teenage sons, so they were on my team. And then I felt I was loose enough to throw one down. I haven't attempted it at age 64 yet. I have until February." —Julius Erving, NBA legend

I am so excited for the work Pauline does on my behalf. I have purchased several e-books to spark muscle growth and tips or tricks to do things differently for effectiveness. This app goes great with the books I've purchased. The major plus is that I can see execution in a video rather looking at the pictures in my books. I absolutely love having the meals written out like they are. The fee to unlock the locked information will be worth it to me. I can not wait for better progress to come. So far, after two weeks my back and delts are happy and showing results. Two of my hardest body parts to deem results. I love my Back Attack and Delts 2 Die 4. Now to properly implement cardio and get ready to hit that stage in 2015. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the competition e-book. Now when a movement is questionable, this will be like having you there for correction.
Is Cutting Carbs The Key To Fat Loss? - Bodybuilding.com
This experimental design is the problem. To truly reap the benefits of "low carb" dieting, you need to be eating <20g of carbs per day and 1-1.5g of fat/lb/day. This is the only way your body will make the "metabolic switch" into ketosis so your brain can use ketones instead of glucose. Otherwise you just go brain dead and risk muscle wasting. There are only a couple studies I've found on true VLC diets, but as a very experienced low carb/keto dieter, I can say with confidence that it is the best way for a fat kid to lose fat.

The Difference Between Olympic and ATG Squats
What isn’t understandable is the way OLY and ATG squats (that’s Olympic and Ass-to-Grass, for you non YouTube-fanatics) are classified. The depth of a squat is never measured by how low to the ground you descend, but instead by the relative height of your hip to your knee — the lower the hip is in relation to the knee, the deeper the squat. Anyone who says otherwise simply doesn’t know what they’re talking about.
Your Program Sucks!
The New Breed
We have happened upon a new age of strength and conditioning. I have seen this coming for sometime now but tried to dismiss it as a fad. Actually, this has been evolving since the first strength coaches were put into place but have pick up speed with the popularity of personal training over the past 10 years. I began to see this first hand five years ago when I began giving seminars, but at the time it was very infrequent. Today I see it everyday. I see it on the internet, journals, magazines, TV, you name it. I have termed this new breed The Savvy Strength Specialist, or SSS for short.
The Floor Press: What Makes The Floor Press So Special? - Bodybuilding.com
However, I do have to admit the one arm floor press with leg lift looks awesome. I love involving my core in exercises. My high school track coach made us do a drill he called The Torture where we would hold a plank with arms extended, go into a plank on the elbows, Transition to left arm and right leg up, switch the arms, roll to the right side plank, roll on to the elbows holding your back off the floor, lift one leg, then then the other, get up into the other side plank, and finally back into the first plank. It was intense and I probably didn't describe it very good. Although doing that 3-5 times really helps your strength and stability.

Underground Strength Training vs Pretty Bodybuilding - Zach Even-Esh
Great bit, Zach! I coach football at a small high school in the mountains outside San Diego. I’ve got my kids doing all your work. We threw a makeshift weight room together with equipment off of craigs list. My team is working out Mon/Wed/Fri… Bench, deadlift & squats… Killing it and going heavy! On thursday we have Gladiator day down by the field in a dirt lot. Sled drags, tire flippin’, san bag step ups, 100 lb keg presses & 200 lb keg lifts onto the back of my flatbed truck. Farmer carry bars, heavy rope swings, pull ups and 40 yard back peddle draggin a 90 lb rail road tie. These kids are loving it & some of them are just turning into animals. Every week one or two of them are walking off & puking in the bushes.. but they come back for more! I’m 40 and I get under the bars with them and flip tires with them. I believe as a coach, you got to lead from the front! You can’t fool these kids… you either got it, or you don’t! Keep up the great work. Can’t wait for the season to start in September so my guys can reak havok on all the pretty little private schools in San Diego with their $100,000.
Since weight training also has been shown to increase GH levels, scientists from Baylor University (Waco, Texas) designed an experiment to test the combination of melatonin supplements and weight training on GH levels. Sixty active, college-aged men and women were assigned to receive either melatonin or a placebo one hour before a workout. Blood tests were taken a few times before the exercise session. The subjects performed seven sets of high-intensity leg presses to stimulate natural GH release. The results showed that even before the workout began, the men receiving the high-dose melatonin supplement (5 mg) had elevated GH levels. After the training session, men in the low-dose (0.5 mg) and the high-dose (5 mg) groups had elevated GH levels when compared to the placebo group.
