Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, November 15, 2014

Sunday, November 16, 2014 - Broadcasting your optimism allows others to get a sense of the big picture as you see it. But you can become so enamored with your vision of the future now that you might miss what is happening right in front of your nose. Although it's hard to resist throwing yourself into another fantastic pursuit, it's more helpful to be as pragmatic as possible today. Whether you like it or not, exercising self-restraint improves your chances of reaching your goals.

Neck Training 101

A well-developed neck is synonymous with power and commands respect. Yet, very few ever take the time out to address the neck with specific training. By understanding a bit more about the functions of the neck and how it pertains to the rest of your training goals, you can put yourself in a better position to improve these important muscles. Flexion, lateral flexion, extension and rotation, folks – these should make it into your weekly training routine. So go ahead and gather ye turtlenecks where ye may – it’s time to toss them into the giveaway box.

Two Supersets to Six-Pack Abs

Sets – 5 Reps – Hold 30 sec. Plank it up: The plank may not be as alluring as dragon flags or inverted situps, but it holds value beyond the gym’s flavor of the week or your favorite Rocky training montage. Because planks increase positional strength along your transverse abdominis, they condition your abs to hold closer to your spine at rest. This will leave you with a flatter stomach and, probably, a few pairs of saggy jeans to chuck into the Goodwill bag. By supersetting this with the ab wheel for 30 seconds at a time, your transverse abs—the deep core muscles—get a double dose of gruesome but waistline-whittling work.

20-Minute Workout - Get Big Quick

The time you take to train doesn’t matter—the intensity does. Have only 20 minutes? No problem, as long as you’re ready for the roughest 20 minutes of your life. This workout uses some tough exercises and intensity techniques to make sure your muscles get the workout they need.

Ask Men's Fitness: Will More Protein Help Me Build More Muscle?

MF: Only up to a point. Protein is the main ingredient in muscle fiber, but it’s only one part of a complex system of nutritional, hormonal, and mechanical requirements that need to be balanced in order for muscles to grow bigger and stronger. More protein in lieu of hard training, optimal sleep, and sufficient calories and micronutrients won’t lead to results.  The Men’s Fitness Food Pyramid that I helped design with several nutrition experts calls for daily consumption of 1–1.5 grams of protein per pound of your body weight. This holds true whether your goal is muscle gain or fat loss.

Modify Your Military Press for Better Results

If you’re dealing with a shoulder injury and pain when pressing overhead, changing to a double underhand (supinated) grip on the bar and using a EZ Curl bar (instead of a straight barbell) may help alleviate stress and strain on the shoulder joint, shift more of the focus to the front delts and improve your ability to press fully overhead with weight. Along with underhand military pressing with an EZ curl bar, Arnold Presses with dumbbells may also be a safer and more comfortable alternative for your shoulders.

The Best Bodyweight Workout of All Time

HOW IT WORKS The circuit we’ve designed here doesn’t let up. When you train any squat variation, plus the pullup and the dip, you work nearly every muscle in your body, and your heart will race to supply them with blood and oxygen. Performing a decreasing number of reps—10 to 1—helps you keep the workout going despite being fatigued and builds the endurance that ultimately leads to being able to rattle off a high number of reps in one shot. In addition to getting you leaner, feel free to use this workout to  win bar bets about how many pullups you can do.

Top 10 Moves for Fast Pec Growth

This article has a very simple purpose - to discuss my favorite exercises for building a massive, thick, gnarly, complete chest . I am not going to talk about techniques, tempos, and  time under tension , or mention muscle origins, insertions, genetics or hormonal manipulations. I simply want to go over my top 10 pec-punishers and why they should be a part of your chest building program.

The 3-Circuit Fat Loss Workout

Circuit training is a great tool to use when time for working out is limited. In circuit training , resistance and aerobic training are combined into one workout to increase heart rate and keep it at a training level for the duration of the exercise session. The results are improved cardiovascular and muscular endurance along with functional strength and fat loss.

Farmer’s Squats: A Leg Blasting Change of Routine

Farmer’s squats are a great tool to have in your training toolbox, but, because of the extreme fatigue induced, they should be used sparingly.  They should be used as a changeup to your normal leg routine during the accumulation phase. At most they should be used once every 6-8 weeks or so. The weight is obviously very light, in the 50% range, but it will differ from athlete to athlete based on individual conditioning levels, mental toughness, etc.

10 Reasons to Dump Your Gym

Before deciding to get your membership, you had a look around the gym to see what kind of machinery and equipment they had. You didn’t join thinking you would never be able to use some of it. As soon as something breaks, the staff should take notice and take strides to get it fixed as soon as possible. Even if it isn’t a piece of equipment you usually use, or if there are other working machines, it reflects poorly on a gym if something is out of commission for more than a few days. “Nowadays, you can get parts over night and service people in a day or two,” trainer Mike Duffy says. “So if your treadmill is out for more than a week or your lat pull-down cable has been twisted around the weight stack for weeks it's time to look for a new gym.” Duffy goes on to say that this is often a sign of an apathetic gym owner or of a gym that simply cannot afford the repairs and may go under soon. Either way, it’s a sign to take your workouts elsewhere.

Making Muscles Out of Meals

If putting on muscle were easy, there would be jacked guys everywhere. But there are obstacles and roadblocks everywhere in the pursuit of lean mass, especially with regard to nutrition. Although you’re most likely familiar with the basic principles of a bodybuilding diet, we’ve compiled a list that includes some overlooked staples as well as some more novel muscle-building foods (algae, anyone?) to assist you in your get-big endeavor. Divided into three levels, each builds upon the prior, ensuring you’ll get the most each food has to offer. Level One focuses on solid choices for macronutrients, Level Two centers on muscle stamina and recovery and Level Three highlights foods that exert specific and specialized influences over anabolism.

My Birthday at the NPC East Coast 11/15 | Flex Lewis

This year, I will turn 31 on November 15th. I still remember my first IFBB competition at the 2008 Tampa Bay Pro 202 where I finished second to David Henry. I have spent the last six years growing up, in and around the sport. I have met so many people from around the world, but there is nothing like the (loud) fans from the New York metro area! So for my birthday, I committed to support my good friends Maz Ali and Steve Weinberger by guest posing at the NPC East Coast Championships in Wayne, NJ. Come on out, make some noise and support the final show of the NPC Northeast season hosted by these two great promoters! Who knows maybe Guy Cisternino will sing me happy birthday, lol. I look forward to meeting the fans. I’ll be setup to take photos with the fans and sign autographs as well. I will also have limited supplies of hats and shirts available from the Flex Lewis Store . NPC East Coast Championships Passaic County Technical Institute 45 Reinhardt RD Wayne, NJ 07470 Prejudging starts at 11am. Finals at 6pm.

8 Dirty Tricks to Improve Your Performance - MuscleMag

Tip 6: Don’t forget about your fascia. This is probably my favourite tip of all, because it takes into account the most commonly neglected component to training. Not only are things like foam rolling and stretching important to optimize your muscles’ firing capacity and general health, but the overall tissue quality of muscle, fascia, and connective tissue can make or break your performance in the weight room. Remember that your large muscles are covered by fascia – a ‘plastic wrap’ style thin sheath that can cover multiple muscles per segment. Use this to your advantage to unlock tight links. Take a golf ball to the bottom of your feet and release the plantar fascia, and you will see an instant improvement in your calf flexibility. In many cases with clients I’ve worked with, I’ve seen this even result in more hamstring flexibility, and relief to Achilles pain. All of a sudden, squats get 10 percent deeper, and a desirable deadlift start position is achieved, without the back rounding due to tight hams.

The Science of Sleep

You might not need to slap yourself in the face and grunt like a silverback before a big lift if you would just get enough sleep. Simply getting enough time on your pillow may be enough of a boost to your performance in the gym. Remember, heavy lifting is just as much cerebral as it is muscular. That is to say that your central nervous system plays a much larger part than you’d think when it comes to pushing through that new personal best on the bench.

The Big Arms Solution

It may seem obvious now that we’re having the conversation but your best bet is to use heavy weight and low reps and perform compound movements that require the arms (triceps and biceps) to take up a lot of the work with the help of some larger muscles. By infusing some calculated bouts of heavy work into your arm training, you will build greater strength, which allows you to use more weight on your higher-rep “pump” work days. If you want your arms to be huge like a strongman and ripped like a gymnast, follow this workout program 2-3 days a week until you curse the tightness of your sleeves.

Back on Track

In 2008, FLEX editors undertook a rather daunting task, journalistically speaking —they gathered to choose the 20 bodybuilders who, in their estimation, represented the best back development of all time. The list was stacked with greats, from Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates at the top of the heap to Melvin Anthony and Albert Beckles snagging the final two spots. You could argue vociferously for a favorite who didn’t make the list (and have a valid point), but all told, no one could debate the quality of the final 20. They were giants in a sport that boasts more than its fair share of larger-than-life physiques.

Top 10 Ways to Avoid Injury

The most common weight-training injuries are those related to the use of poor exercise technique . Incorrect technique can pull, rip or wrench a muscle or tear delicate connective tissue quicker than you can strike a match. An out-of-control barbell or stray dumbbell can wreak havoc in an instant. Each human body has very specific biomechanical pathways. Arms and legs can only move in certain ways, particularly if you're stress-loading a limb with weight. Strive to become a technical perfectionist and respect the integrity of the exercise —no twisting, turning or contorting while pushing a weight. Either make the rep using perfect technique or miss the weight. Learn how to miss a rep safely; learn how to bail out.

11 Ways to Eat to Make Your Abs Pop

There's a layer of flab over your abs. Yes, you do have abs. It's just time to get your diet in check. Here are 11 nutrition tweaks you need to make starting today.

H.U.G.E. Gym Class: Cardio

We have to talk about it. As much as you’d rather discuss bench pressing, biceps or just about anything else, most bodybuilders spend more time on a treadmill or StepMill than a leg press or preacher bench. And when dieting down, most iron men and women invest more hours burning calories than pumping muscles. Still, the majority of trainers haven’t learned how to maximize their stationary strides. This month, we shed the fat and explain how to get your cardio back on track. Class is in session.

The Men's Fitness Food Pyramid

As a physique-conscious eater, you need to think in terms of macronutrients as well as calories. Every food you eat gets counted toward a total target amount (in grams) of protein, carbs, and fat, which you can determine by multiplying the numbers in the Men’s Fitness Food Pyramid by your body weight in pounds. Hit these numbers and you’ll hit your goals. With that said, your nutrition doesn’t need to be as precise as target coordinates for a missile attack. You’ll do just fine eyeballing portions of protein, carbs, and fat (which we’ll show you how to do) and keeping a general tally.

Growth Surge

Some supplements, when taken in large doses for a short period, might be just the thing for blasting through that plateau. Combining the following ingredients at the prescribed doses for one full week could give your muscles everything they are asking for and then some. Instead of the usual beat-down tactics, you’re taking an alternative route to the same end by jacking up your power and energy while igniting your growth triggers. It’s an opportunity to get back on the path to huge, which isn’t such a stellar word for Scrabble players, but it is a kick-ass word for bodybuilders.

Build Muscle and Get Lean with the Right Breakfast

The protein-only and fasting groups displayed significant increases in growth hormone, whereas the protein-plus-carbohydrate individuals showed no changes. Growth hormone is an essential part of your muscle-building goals, as it helps to spare amino acids in the body. Also, cortisol— your stress hormone—was lowered the most in the protein-only breakfast. So why include the MCTs? Medium-chain triglycerides are easily absorbed fats that, unlike normal triglycerides, can be used immediately for energy. Studies on MCT usage have shown increases in growth hormone, more fat being used for energy, and an increase in metabolism . Having some fat at breakfast may also shift the body toward using more fat as fuel during the course of the day.

The 20 Dumbest Things Ever Said by Bodybuilders

Oh, boy! We’ve all done this at some point, myself included. But thankfully I know better now. As much as it would be nice to work my lower biceps or lengthen my biceps, preacher curls do not do this, and neither do any other exercises. They may overload the lower portion of the strength curve, thereby making you stronger in that part of the range, giving you the misperception that you’re lengthening your biceps. In reality, you’re just getting overall thickness in your biceps.

Flex Lewis

James ‘Flex’ Lewis’ love for bodybuilding started at age 12 when he came across a book on Tom Platz.  It was Platz's legs that blew away Lewis, front to back, side to side. He remembers always wanting to have huge legs from that day on. One of his biggest idols as a kid was Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Depth Defying

However, if you’ve never tried to go below parallel, we don’t suggest you simply throw your typical weight on the bar and drop your ass to the grass. It’s probably wise to consider this version of the squat as a brand new exercise initially because the deep squat requires a unique set of demands. Therefore, it’s critical to begin with very a light weight. In fact, during your warm-up, it’s not a bad idea to practice the deep squat with an unloaded bar, especially if you’re used to stopping your squats at the parallel point (or — gasp! — even higher). The reason being, if you’ve never taken your glutes to the floor during a set of squats, chances are good that you lack the ankle and hip flexibility, not to mention the core strength to support the lift through such a great range of motion. The key then is to work your way into the deep squat, beginning with flexibility.

In Defense Of Processed Foods -

I mean, I never agree with many articles and it's well written. This is bs though. You're dumb if you eat ingredients you don't recognize. Partially Hydrogenated Oils are one molecule away from plastic, and some people say it's not a food. Plus it's pretty much the most unhealthy fat out there. Modified starches do not have to specify what makes them "modified", it could be a chemical treatment, or something harmless. All bread at the normal grocery store is usually loaded with garbage. I could go on and on nitpicking negative side effects of alot of different ingredients in our food. Some of the supplements fillers or ingredients, are not the best either. Some protein powders were even found to be contaminated with heavy metals! Although you might be able to walk in the grocery store and come out with a somewhat decent meal. I would avoid the standard grocery store all together, if you really want to eat good.
