Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 - You are reconsidering the promises you made at work and are willing to renegotiate your commitments, if necessary. The down-to-earth Taurus Full Moon grounds your 6th House of Daily Routine, advising you that a pragmatic approach to your job is wiser now than harboring unrealistic ambitions. Be satisfied with your current position today, instead of plotting and scheming to get further ahead. Patiently listening to what others want enables you to bargain more effectively for what you need in the long run.

12 Concepts Bodybuilders Should Use Every Day

HEALTH: In reference to his cigarette smoking and junk-food tendencies, Mike Mentzer once declared that he wasn’t a “health nut,” he was a bodybuilder. He died at age 49. If you focus on bodybuilding through the prism of pro contests and the endless pursuit of more size and cuts, then it’s easy to lose sight of the health-boosting components of our sport. Don’t make that mistake. A regular exercise program coupled with a muscle-growing fat-deflecting diet, nutrient supplementation and adequate rest is a health-building lifestyle. Health and bodybuilding should go hand in hand.

The 10 Strongest Humans to Ever Walk the Earth

We’d like to make it clear that comparing athletes whose peaks came a century apart makes educated speculation a must. First, there’s the issue of chemical enhancement, something obviously not available to a Louis Uni. Second, Todd points out that during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, strength athletes didn’t so much train as give performances on an irregular basis. The strength they displayed for gawking crowds was raw and untrained—and it was their performances that made them stronger, nothing systematic. In this light, we attempted to recognize not just recorded strength but potential strength as well. Call it a metaphysical leveling of the playing field.

5 Benefits of Sleeping Naked

If you and your lady are trying to have a baby, ditch the boxer briefs and don boxers instead during the day—and go nude when you hit the sack at night. Researchers from the National Institute of Child Health and Development and Stanford University tracked 500 men, each of whom dictated their own sleep habits and choice of underwear, for one year. When researchers analyzed each guy's sperm quality, they discovered men who stuck with the boxer-by-day, commando-by-night routine had a 25 percent lower rate of damaged DNA in their sperm than did men who wore tighter underwear 24/7, according to the study, which was presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in Baltimore.

How to Determine Your Ideal Body Fat Percentage

One of the most accurate and cost effective ways to measure your body fat is with a caliper. There are several other ways to take your body fat. Underwater weighing, dexa scan, bioelectrical impedance machines and calipers. Calipers are designed to clip the body fat and measure the fat under the skin. There are various  pinch tests. I recommend using a four or seven point caliper test. Regardless of whatever method you use the key element is consistency. It matters much less what the body fat number says as long as every time you check your body fat it’s moving in the right direction...down! Try to be as consistent as possible when taking your measurements. Try to do them under the same conditions, for example first thing in the morning after using the restroom. This will eliminate any discrepancies with inconsistencies and fluctuations throughout the day.

The Ripped Back Workout

As enjoyable as bench-pressing may be, focusing too much on chest and arms and not enough on your back can have real performance consequences. Training your back improves posture, results in more power production, and, not to mention, completes that ever-desired V-taper look. “A strength-and-conditioning program is simply incomplete without a back-training regimen. “Continuous pressing (like flat and incline bench) without back training leads to strength imbalances; you have to balance out your pressing to keep muscles firing so one area is not overdeveloped or underdeveloped,” says C.J. Murphy, M.F.S., owner of Total Performance Sports in Everett, MA. “Since all power is transmitted through your torso, you want to develop the torso, and the back is half the torso.” Build serious back strength with this five-move back workout designed to improve athletic performance.

Grow Your Biceps

Rogers calls cable work his “main secret” for building bigger biceps. “Cables give you the constant tension needed to tear down your biceps,” he says. His exercises of choice include standing EZ-bar cable curls, rope cable hammer curls and, his favorite, seated cable curls. He performs the latter at a seated cable row station (facing the weight stack) using a wide grip on an EZ-bar attachment. Keeping his elbows elevated so his arms are more or less parallel with the floor, he curls the bar to his forehead while making sure his upper arms remain stationary throughout. “This exercise will help develop the main peak of your biceps,” Rogers says.

10 Practically Useless Exercises

“The primary reason I would deem this move fairly useless for most people is the fact that the Smith Machine in general locks you into a guided bar path, which will reduce the co-contraction of the quads and hamstrings. That decreases hamstring activation because they don’t have to counteract the quads as much and the bar is already being stabilized.” - Craig Rasmussen, C.S.C.S. Training Director at Results Fitness in Newhall, CA

How to Personalize Your Workout

Designing your plan isn’t just about selecting good exercises. It’s about the picking the best options for you body. If every workout were created equal, then all plans would deliver the same results and consist of the exact same movements. While most training plans do boil down to some commonalities, there’s a reason why so...

Jack Up Your Workout With Caffeine

In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled study from the University of Georgia (Athens), it was found that caffeine ingestion (approximately 300 milligrams) before maximal voluntary isometric contraction reduced muscular pain intensity by almost 50%. It’s hypothesized that this dramatic decrease in muscular pain is because of caffeine’s ability to block adenosine receptors in the brain and spinal cord involved in pain processing and perception. To put this finding into perspective, a study concluded that the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and analgesic Naproxen had only a 30% reduction in post-exercise muscle soreness. This research suggests you can push your muscles further and harder with each workout when taking caffeine, thus providing a greater stimulus for growth.

How Much Rest is Best?

You need rest to grow. Sleep and time away from the gym are essential to the process of repairing the muscle tissue you damage by lifting weights. No matter who you are, there’s no way around this fact. But how much rest you need is a question that’s dogged exercise scientists for years. Now a new study from Japan suggests that a 12-day deconditioning period, in which no training at all is done, can help resensitize anabolic signals within your muscles-signals that can become desensitized to weight training stimuli over time.

Why You Should Eat Protein Before Carbs

In the study, researchers recruited 11 people with type-2 diabetes who were overweight or obese, and taking a drug called Metformin, which helps control blood sugar. All participants fasted for 12-hours overnight before consuming a 628-calorie meal with protein, carbs, and fat. In one trial, they ate the carbs first (ciabatta bread and orange juice) before eating skinless grilled chicken, a small salad, and buttered steamed broccoli 15 minutes later. In the next trial (one week later), participants ate the same meal, only the order was reversed. They ate the salad and broccoli first, then the chicken, followed by the carbs. Their blood samples were taken before the meals, and then 30, 60, and 120 minutes after.

5 Mind Tricks For Eating Healthy Food

Researchers from the Cornell Food & Brand Lab analyzed 112 studies that collected information about healthy eating behaviors. From the research , they found that most healthy eaters acquire and maintain their habits because a restaurant, food store, cafeteria, or spouse made fruits and vegetables convenient. Not surprising—Americans tend to err on the side of lazy and easy. To make this work for you, keep a bundle of bananas or a bowl of fruit in a high-traffic area in your house or apartment (i.e. on the kitchen table, on the counter, next to your keys), prepare and portion veggies in portable containers for work, keep bags of nuts and dried fruit in your car, or put healthier foods in the front of your fridge and pantry shelves so they’re easy to grab.

3 Things Every Hardgainer Must Do

The human mind is an incredible creation, but it can also be very fallible, and not so great with estimates. “A ton of food,” once documented, is more than likely going to come up smaller than anticipated. Sometimes, it’s the fact that someone is eating only a few times a day, and even if those meals tend to be bigger than average, it’s still not enough. And if you’re not gaining weight, whatever you’re eating is inadequate — the scale doesn’t lie, so if weight is unchanged or decreasing, your body is burning more fuel than you’re taking in. It’s simple math.

Muscle Condiments

Eating bland chicken, dry steak, and undressed steamed vegetables gets old quick. Yet many bodybuilders continuously shovel flavorless food down their throats in fear that any and all add-ons will jeopardize their physiques. Along with herbs and spices, condiments used as dips, spreads, and dressings can spruce up dull fare without causing total diet annihilation—especially when they’re homemade. Many store-bought condiments rely on synthetic ingredients and sugar to create a longer shelf life and boost flavor. Unfortunately, those same ingredients can kill your shred.

6 Ways to Pump Up Your Post-Workout Meal

We all know the most important time to get food in is immediately post workout. Our body is in a prime state to soak up nutrients to help repair muscle tissues. This process begins the early stages of recovery, which helps us to grow bigger and stronger. What should you be eating post workout ? How much should you be eating? Whey protein alone or consume protein with carbs?

Is Criticism Helpful?

Think about it. We share our opinions and beliefs so that we can influence others and promote progressive thoughts, actions, and behaviors. We’ve all been in positions where we’ve been criticized—both in deserving and undeserving situations. As an employee and a boss, I’ve seen it from both angles. I’ve never had an issue with criticism. In fact, I encourage it. I’m the guy who walks around with a chip on his shoulder at all times. Find my flaws and it will fuel me to become better. But when my mistakes or inadequacies are identified, I want the criticism to be directional not static.

Back to Basics: Revisiting the Three Most Powerful Workout Moves

But there are a few good reasons to take a step back and revisit these classic exercises: If you base your workout routine around these core moves, eat clean and throw some sprints in the mix, you're be rewarded with higher testosterone levels, a fired-up metabolism and muscles that flare.

6 Worst Things You Can Do to Get a Bigger Chest

Walk into the gym any Monday night and you're likely to see the majority of guys working like mad on their pecs. So why is it that chest usually leads off the training week? Well, because big pecs are cool! Just look at the Terminator , Rocky, and Superman and it's easy to see why most men covet massive, thick, and striated pectorals . The funny (or sad really) thing is, despite all of the hard work, very few get to display the kind of chests that make jaws drop and tempt the ladies to reach out for a quick feel.

The Legend of the Welsh Dragon

Like Phil Heath, Lewis possesses narrow clavicles, which limit his lat width. But also like the five-time Mr. O, this four-time 212 O champ made the crucial rear double-biceps pose his “lights out” winner by accentuating all the components others neglect—traps, rhomboids, lat density, spinal erectors—and that’s before we even get to his superb lower body. Let’s take just one area, his spinal erectors, which are arguably the best in the IFBB Pro League. Many bodybuilders neglect this body part, but not the Welsh Dragon. In each back workout, he gives it a special focus with power-rack deadlifts and intensely contracted back extensions.
