Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, November 22, 2014

Sunday, November 23, 2014 - Rolling with a few surprises today is a piece of cake. Luckily, your cheerful resilience enables you to deal with one noisy distraction after another. Although the Moon is in your sign, her collaboration with intellectual Uranus empowers you to display your brilliance while intuitively responding to an emotional drama. Just remember, you don't always have to be rational. It's sweeter to escape into your dreams for a while if you know you'll be pulled back into reality by tomorrow.

6 Moves for Stronger Knees

Get into a pushup position with a roller at the base of your ankles. Turn your toe in towards the midline of your body in order to expose the muscles of the shin and address them. Press your shins firmly down on the roller and gradually inch up towards your knee. You completely control the pressure in this movement. For more intensity really lay your body weight into the foam, for less ease back on the throttle. I like trying to move my foot up and down during the rolling and search for hot spots. 45 seconds to a minute on each leg should suffice and free up those important lower leg muscles.

Best Pre-Workout Foods

Bananas “They’re nature’s PowerBar,” boasts Dr. Louise Burke, head of Sports Nutrition at the Australian Institute of Sport and coauthor of The Complete Guide to Food for Sports Performance: Peak Nutrition for Your Sport . Bananas are loaded with digestible carbohydrates (read: fuel) and are packed with potassium, which aids in maintaining nerve and muscle function. The body doesn’t store potassium for very long, so a medium banana before a workout will help keep nutrient levels high. Villacorta especially recommends bananas for morning exercisers: “Get up and eat a medium banana with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Wait about 30 minutes and then hit the gym. Your body will need the carbohydrates and protein.”

12 Healthy Foods That Aren’t Really Healthy

Don’t be fooled by the labels–these foods aren’t what you think.

6 http://www.poliquingroup.com/ArticlesMultimedia/Articles/Article/1068/Ten_Rules_for_Mastering_the_Deadlift_.aspx

Just as with any lift that you’re training to failure, especially one in which the lower back is principally involved, you must maintain perfect form for all reps. Assuming you do maintain perfect form, you can test your limit in terms of reps without as much danger as there is with squats; in the deadlift all you have to do is release the bar, which is much safer than dumping a few hundred pounds from your shoulders in the squat.

7
Incline Barbell Front Raise

The devil is in the details, and this holds as true for the deltoids as for any other muscle group. Overhead pressing should make up the foundation of your shoulder work , but achieving a well-rounded set of delts requires addressing all three heads (anterior, middle, posterior). When you’re sporting a tank top, the detail and striations in the anterior deltoids (or lack thereof ) are just as visible as the width and thickness of the middle regions. So give the front side of your shoulders some love once or twice a week by completely isolating them. This incline barbell front raise is a great way to start doing just that.

The Get Lean for Life Diet

When you eat healthy foods, you don’t have to worry much about calories. In fact, in the early stages of your diet, we suggest you don’t focus on calories at all—it will only make you hate the process. Still, you need some measure of what you’re taking in so you don’t overeat—or undereat, which can slow your metabolism.  You must estimate your portion sizes, which you can do with a wave of your hand. A three ounce serving of lean meat (your main source of protein on this plan) is about the size of your palm. A cup of starchy carbs, such as from potatoes or rice, is the size of your clenched fist, while a serving of fruit is one whole piece or one cup. A tablespoon of healthy fats from oils like olive or coconut is roughly the area of your thumbnail, and a serving of nuts or seeds amounts to a handful. Aim for about 10 total servings of protein .

The Ultimate Warmup for Lifting Heavy

To  lift heavy weights , break records, and add slabs of muscle to your frame, you’ll need a great warmup to unlock your full potential before every workout. We don’t mean a 5-minute treadmill jog and some toe-touches followed by a 300-pound deadlift. This comprehensive warmup will get your heart pumping and muscles ready to grow fast.

The Best Full-Body Fat Loss Workout

Perform the first exercise as straight sets. Exercises 2A through 2D are done as a complex, so choose one pair of dumbbells and use them for each move. Use a load that allows you to complete your reps on your weakest exercise in the series. Perform six reps for each of the exercises. Rest 90 seconds and repeat.For exercises 3A through 3D, adjust your equipment and loads as necessary, but perform them in the same circuit fashion. If you choose to repeat the workout, vary the sets and reps you perform on these last four exercises each session. This will help you to continue milking gains from the circuit for months on end. Rotate between 3 sets of 10 reps, 4 sets of 5 reps, and 2 sets of 15 reps.

Abs-olutely No Sit-Ups Required

Sore abs make people happy. The pain lets you know that you’re laying the groundwork for a grand reveal. One way to nearly guarantee that deep delayed onset muscle soreness is with the rollout. Performed with an ab wheel or a weighted barbell, you start holding the wheel directly beneath your shoulders with your arms extended and then roll out by pushing the wheel or barbell ahead of you and extending the hips until they’re at full extension. Roll the wheel (or barbell) out past your head to extend the stretch placed on the abs, pause, then reverse direction to the start. This move hits the transverse abdominis, but your next-day woes will be felt primarily in the rectus abdominis, from origin to insertion. Try three to five sets of 15 reps with no more than a minute rest between them.

7 Things You Didn't Know Yoga Could Do for Your Body

If you practice yoga five days a week you’ll just turn into a Gumby doll, right? Eh, maybe. Though a regular yoga practice does increase flexibility and help strengthen and lengthen your muscles, there are some not so obvious benefits to getting your “om” on regularly. From better bowel movements to steamier sex, you might be surprised what a little time on the mat can do for you. Try yoga for yourself.

Pullups: The King of Back Development

An easy way to begin to add these to your regimen is the Pyramid Method.  To do this you pick a top number, for a beginner it may be ten. You start by doing one pull-up, then rest 30 seconds, then do 2 pullups, then rest 30 seconds, then do 3 pullups, and so on until you get to ten, then you start heading back down the pyramid by doing 9, then 8, etc. until you are back down to 1.

What's the Right Way to Drink Whiskey?

My first experience with the brown liquors was Jack Daniel’s, but it just got me twisted and made me angry. I eventually moved on to bourbon, because I liked the complexities. For a while I was hooked on Woodford Reserve, a great and affordable domestic bourbon.But whatever you do, don’t ever buy your whiskey from a bar that tries to charge you $2 for a “neat pour.” It actually happens, and it’s fucking ridiculous. I’d rather drink whiskey out of a paper bag than pay $2 for a goddamn glass without ice. Shorty Maniace is the proprietor of J.P. Kempt Barber & Social in San Francisco.

The Top 10 Questions Men Ask About Sex

If your girlfriend can’t orgasm during intercourse, she’s not alone—80% of women don’t reach orgasm through intercourse alone; most women require an assist from extra clitoral stimulation. To top that off, one in three women has trouble reaching orgasm at all. There could be many reasons, and none of them have to do with your sexual prowess. She might be feeling stressed or anxious, she may have low self-esteem or she may be just plain inexperienced with her own body. It’s all about a woman knowing her own hot spots, and once she figures them out, she can show you how she gets there. Another fun way to tilt the orgasm odds is to try out a sex toy. Incorporating a vibrator for extra clitoral stimulation during intercourse will definitely increase the odds of her having an orgasm.  9 Positions That Do the Trick Every Time >>>

Does Pot Make You A Better Athlete?

The first tingle of  THC  hits him as he's stretching his calves.  “I’m locked in,” he says, squishing two headphone buds into his ears. “This is going to be a great pace.”  The sun hasn’t yet risen over Colorado’s Front Range peaks, but Cliff D. (who asked not to be named), like many working-stiff triathletes, juggles a career—he’s a full-time strength and conditioning coach—with his own training and racing, and that means plenty of predawn workouts. But unlike the other guys circling Denver’s Washington Park in the early hours, Cliff has just eaten an energy bar that contains enough marijuana to numb a small elephant. To be precise, the homemade bar was packed with about 30 milligrams of the plant’s psychoactive chemical, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). For a newbie pot  smoker , the THC dose would be a knockout punch. For Cliff, that’s just breakfast.  Standing 5'6", Cliff, 39, a hardcore athlete and former Division I soccer player who trains upward of 23 hours a week, has a thick chest and lean, muscular arms and legs. A lattice of tattoos peeks from below his sleeves, and his skin is tanned an even olive brown.

Why Losing Weight Is Hard - Born Fitness

I have very few people that I consider “mentors” in my life. My parents are obvious, but outside of my family there is one man that stands above the rest: Ted Spiker. I say this with as much gratitude possible; if it wasn’t for Ted Spiker, I don’t know if I would have ever made it in the health and fitness industry. In fact, writing about Spiker deserves it’s own post, but right now I want to focus on Spiker’s latest contribution to the health industry, Down Size . In this excerpt from his new book, Spiker keys in on the real reason why so many goal driven plans (for weight loss, exercise, diet…really anything) oftentimes fail. Grab a cup of coffee and get ready to learn. This one’s on the house and it’s worth your time. -AB

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Spot-On Training

In my many years of training with and observing countless bodybuilders, it became clear that even the best athletes have weaknesses in their physiques. Some had small arms, others were lacking in the lower body, and I used to have rather underdeveloped calves. But the great thing about bodybuilding is that you have the power to focus on a weakness and make it a strength. Here are a few common physique weaknesses, along with effective ways to fix them.

Straight-Up Chest Workout

The first two movements might seem like enough to some lifters, but the addition of a third (or fourth) exercise can help you maximize overload on the pecs. The inclusion of the dip hits your entire chest, with an emphasis on the lower third. To stay in the best muscle-building rep range, add weight if you can get more than 10 reps with your body weight alone. If you can’t do 10 reps on your own, perform your sets rest-pause style, executing a few reps a time with short rest periods (15–25 seconds) until you reach 10.

How Much Social Media Stalking Is Appropriate Before a First Date?

First off, maybe you don’t want to casually throw around words like stalking. Julie Spira, an online  dating  expert and founder of  cyberdatingexpert.com , says it’s perfectly normal to “sneak a digital peek” at a woman before a date, but it probably isn’t healthy to comb her online details “to see if she’s less than perfect.” This can lead to jumping to unfair conclusions. “You’re setting yourself up for failure by becoming a cyber-sleuth,” Spira says. “Take the time to develop your relationship with a potential date offline, looking for things you like about her, instead of digging deeper about her past online.”
