Flex Lewis' Birthday at the 2014 NPC East Coast Championships

Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, November 24, 2014

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - You may be secretly struggling against the lessons that taskmaster Saturn is teaching you now. The good news is the hardest work is probably already completed. The time for scheming is over; whatever you do today establishes the direction for your next journey. Although you might erroneously believe that you must show progress toward your goals, forward movement isn't necessarily part of your current curriculum. Instead, accept the temporary restrictions being placed on your plans while sticking to your convictions.

Back in Action for More Muscle Gain

The point is time under tension. The longer your muscles work, the more the body gets the message that it had better build them up to handle the stress. Of course, time isn’t the only consideration— otherwise, all marathon runners would have big legs. That’s where tension comes in. Combine long sets with moderate loads and you’ll get your muscles growing fast.

Muscle in Minutes: Chest

This twice-weekly workout plan is built on that simple premise: instead of starting your week with the flat-bench, per the usual, you’re going to head straight for the incline. With your pre-workout raging through your veins, you’ll soon be pressing gnarly weight loads toward the ceiling, touching off crazy new growth in your under-trained upper chest. From there, things normalize with flat-bench dumbbell presses and push-ups, with some calculated twists to jack up the intensity, of course.

7 Ways to Make Your Biceps Workout Harder

“Volume, reps, intensity, weights, hand position , and the types of resistance you're using are all areas that require attention,” says Gold’s Gym Fitness Institute Expert Adam Friedman, CSCS, CN. “There are a bunch of ways you can do that, including moving from free weight to machine, or machine to cable.”

The 6 Most Brutal CrossFit WODs

A CrossFit staple, the Filthy 50 is a brutal series of taxing exercises that’s likely to seem endless if you’ve never done it before. The circuit includes 50 reps of 10 different exercises, all done as quickly as possible. Do 50 box jumps with a 24-inch box, 50 jumping pullups, 50 kettlebell swings, 50 walking lunge steps, 50 knees to elbows, 50 reps of push press with 45 pounds, 50 back extensions, 50 wallballs using a 20-pound ball, 50 burpees (dropping all the way to the floor), 50 double-unders.

3 Rules You Have to Break to Make Gains

There’s a reason skinny punks call lifters “meatheads” and why some of the dumbest guys in your gym are also the biggest: building muscle ain’t that complicated . Sure, there’s a science to it, but hard work and consistency will take you further than any one program, diet, or exercise can. In an effort to sell more products, the fitness industry has tried to convince you that you need to follow certain rules in order to get big and strong and lean, making the process of transforming your body far more complex, arduous (and, consequently, much less fun) than it has to be.

5 Ways to Get Faster Results in the Gym

You wake up, shower, eat a light protein-packed breakfast , and head to the gym. You spend an hour fast-walking on the treadmill, bulk up on the chest press machine, do a few sets of curls, lunge to exhaustion, and head home. You repeat that same routine daily. And you—get this—may not even see the results you want. “People who just go through the motions, doing the same workout over and over again each week, don’t make progress,” says Craig Ballantyne, CTT, owner of CB Athletic Consulting, Inc. “In order to see results your body needs a new training stimulus.”

4 Exercises You Shouldn't Be Doing

A contraindicated exercise refers to the danger that a movement can appear simple and harmless, but it does not apply to everyone in the population. For some they could potentiate the risk for injury. For others they might be fine – but it comes down to the makeup of your anatomy. Usually the exercises are contraindicated due to the varying amount of stress the joints take as a by-product.

25 Ways to Make Your Brain More Efficient

4. Keep Your Blood Sugar in Check Even if you aren’t diabetic, large fluctuations in insulin levels in the body can dull your brain’s response times and inhibit peak performance. Some researchers even speculate that insulin resistance caused by consistently high levels of insulin in the body over time may be a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease. On the flip side, if insulin levels are low, or the pancreas stops production of the hormone, the memory may suffer as well: A study conducted at Brown University found that insulin-resistant rats were more likely to become disoriented and have trouble finding their way out of a maze. Two ways to keep blood sugar stable: Eat carbs on the low end of the glycemic scale, and avoid both skipping meals and bingeing.

The 8 Best Things You Can Do For Your Metabolism

Metabolism is a fancy word for how your body regulates energy consumption. Someone with a higher metabolism burns more calories even at rest than someone with a lower metabolism, and can therefore get away with eating more food —even junk food. But a high metabolism isn’t a privilege reserved for a select few who were lucky enough to be born with it. You can raise yours and reap the benefits. Here are the 8 best things you can do.

Dieting Mistakes - Born Fitness

Sometimes I’m frustrated when people become angry about the word “diet.” As I’ve said many times before, if you eat you have a diet. It’s that simple. But I understand that when people think about diets they imagine restrictions, hunger, and lack of results. In that scenario the word diet sucks. And yet, you still need to eat and find a way that leaves you feeling good, satisfied, energized, and healthy. Instead of suggesting another diet (whether Paleo, Atkins, South Beach, or any other well-known name), I asked Sohee Lee, author of Reverse Dieting , to tackle the mistakes that give diets a bad rep in the first place. Avoid these common dieting mistakes, and odds are you won’t have any more issues with the D-word. -AB

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner always seem to be the easiest meals to figure out. (With lunch tending to be the most the difficult to keep “healthy.”) But for most people, especially those in the working world, finding healthy snacks is oftentimes a frustrating challenge.

Ask Men's Fitness: How Do I Ask My Girlfriend About Kinky Sex?

Begin by using props you have instead of purchased gear that may intimidate her. For instance, use your own shirt as a makeshift blindfold or hand tie. Or use her shirt, which you can slip off and hold around her arms for a few seconds, gently pinning her. (It’s a lot less daunting than pulling out under-the-bed hand restraints.) and if you want to dabble in role playing, start out by simply acting like a different person in bed; you don’t have to go full-on “I’m the pool boy,” with a detailed backstory and new accent, but she’ll appreciate a subtle change of pace.

Eight Essential Rules for a Clean Bulk

First things first: you can only gain weight during a caloric surplus. But gone are the days of splurging on everything in site for the sake of a bulk . Instead, target a moderate caloric surplus so you’re not adding fat. A good rule-of-thumb for calories is 16 x your bodyweight in pounds. For example, if you weigh 175 pounds, you should consume about 2800 calories (16 x 175) to gain weight.

Light vs. Heavy Weight

Defense:  Lifting heavy weight is what separates the men from the boys and allows bodybuilders to make the biggest gains in mass. In fact, some of the largest bodybuilders to ever grace the posing dais were ex-powerlifters.

Ultimate Fat Burning, Muscle Building Circuits

Just because you’re training in a circuit doesn’t mean you’re training light. In fact, machines allow you train heavy and safely without the use of a spotter, which leads to greater gains in strength and size. But this protocol will also help you in the metabolism department. Research shows that shorter rest periods between heavy sets helped lifters burn 50 percent more calories during the workout than those who rested three minutes. So go big and go brisk for max results. All you have to do is adjust the resistance accordingly.

The Greatest Catch Ever?

There may have been spectacular catches made in bigger moments—leaping touchdown catches in the Super Bowl or diving grabs in overtime of a playoff race. There have been great catches made by great players on great teams. But New York Giants rookie wideout Odell Beckham, Jr.'s twisting one-hand touchdown grab in what may end up being a meaningless NFC East divisional game against the Dallas Cowboys may go down as the greatest catch in football history.

Q&A: What Supplements Should I Take?

If you're new to research, dive into some papers you're interested in and look up terms you don't understand. Keep in mind that judging study quality is a full time job for some researchers, using methods such as the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool, and this kind of understanding takes time and effort.

Cheap Sources of Healthy Protein

Looking for the best source of high-protein foods? The choices are easy—lean red meat, poultry, fish and soy are among your best bets. Throw cost consideration into the mix, however, and suddenly things become less obvious. In these tough economic times, a thick cut of filet mignon is not an everyday option for most guys. That doesn't mean you need to be in an upper tax bracket to get your daily protein fix. It just means you need to find less expensive protein sources to include as a regular part of your diet. We've put together a list of protein-packed sources that won't put you in the poor house.
