Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, November 3, 2014
Monday, November 3, 2014 - Keeping your desires to yourself seems like a wise choice today if your feelings are drawing you into unconventional territory. However, completely suppressing a craving might actually strengthen it instead of making it go away. Your smartest strategy may be to hold your emotions close to your chest while exploring them in your fantasies. When you are ready, sharing your yearning with a trusted friend might bring you the objective perspective you need to let it go and move on.

Gain Bulk Without Getting Fat
You want every calorie you ingest to be pointed toward muscle repair and growth, even if you store a little bodyfat along the way. The best way to avoid adding too much extra adipose tissue while gaining size is to make sure that you are eating a relatively clean high calorie diet.
5 Core Construction Fixes
You will notice that some of the people with the strongest core muscles don’t even do any core work. That is because they are focusing on multi-joint lifts (working more than one muscle group at a time) instead of single joint lifts (one muscle group at a time, such as biceps curl). When it comes to multi-joint moves, you have plenty to choose from: deadlifts, squat variations, lunges, kettlebell exercises, rows, medicine ball throws, Olympic lifts and powerlifts all stimulate a lot of muscle at one time. The core has no choice but to work hard to stabilize the spine as you perform these types of exercises. Certain machines allow you to work multiple muscle groups at once but they don’t have the kind of core demand that you’re looking for because of the fixed range of motion, meaning that less contribution is required of your core musculature. So instead of doing so many, triceps pushdowns, cardio and machine moves, stick to the basics.
10 Foam Roller Moves for Your Entire Body
Lie down with your back on the floor. Place a foam roller underneath your upper back and cross your arms in front of you, protracting your shoulder blades. Raise your hips off of the ground, placing your weight onto the roller. Shift your weight to one side, rolling the upper to mid back. Alternate sides.
The Best Jump-Rope Workout
Make sure you’ve got a good rope. Beaded or plastic “speed” ropes are more durable than cotton ones and whip around faster, making for a more intense workout . They’re also mandatory if you want to build up to doing advanced jump-rope moves like the double jump (which we’ve included here, although we don’t expect you to master it right away). Before you begin using a rope, measure it to your height. When you stand on the middle of the rope, the handles should extend to your armpits. Cut and adjust the length as necessary. You have to gradually prepare your lower body for the impact of jumping, so begin on a waxed wooden floor or rubber floor. Hold the rope with hands at about hip height and elbows slightly bent, keeping your upper arms close to your sides. Your chest should be out and your shoulders back and down. Make your jumps small and land on the balls of your feet.
9 Things Guys Do That Can Give Them Man Boobs
But don’t buy stock in the bro (thanks, Kramer!) just yet. Assuming you aren’t born with a genetic disorder like Klinefelter syndrome that can cause the condition, bra-ready jugs are pretty simple to avoid if you heed the causes. Breast tissue—which both women and men possess—feeds off of estrogen hormones. While women naturally have more estrogen, and men naturally have more androgen hormones, men can easily get their estrogens-to-androgens ratio out of whack. The result: Sprouting boobs faster than your high school’s head cheerleader.
The 12 Most Common Fitness Mistakes Guys Make
Fix it: Instead of busting out the calculator app on your iPhone to add up all that poundage, ease up and focus on the quality of the movement instead, Holland suggests. “Keep in mind that gains happen during the eccentric (stretch) portion of the lift—plus you’ll be less likely to injure yourself.” Use a two-second up (concentric) and five-second down/stretch (eccentric) focus so you control the weight the entire way—and use a weight that works within this range for you.
Best Breakfasts for Weight Loss
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day—as if you haven't heard that before. But what you may not know is that eating breakfast is essential for successful weight loss. "It's like putting logs on a wood-burning stove. You need that initial input of fuel to get your metabolism going for the day," says Milton Stokes, R.D., author of Flat Belly Diet! For Men . Shoot for 400 to 600 calories within an hour of waking up, with an emphasis on nutrients that will leave you satisfied for hours: protein healthy fats, and fiber. Try these popular options, designed specifically to boost calorie burn.

7 Deskside Diet Snacks
It’s 3 o’clock in the afternoon, your post-lunch food coma has worn off, and dinner is nowhere in sight. You may be tempted to hit up the vending machine for an afternoon pick-me-up, but beware. Most foods that fall out of a dusty machine are packed with preservatives and heaps of sugar that make your blood sugar soar and your body crave a snack with more substance. A smarter approach to deskside snacking : come prepared with foods that help you stay alert and satisfied throughout the workday. Manuel Villacorta, M.S., R.D., author of Peruvian Power Foods , tipped us off to seven healthy mini-meals sure to pull you out of an afternoon slump.

7 Rules of Being a Great Workout Partner
Forget about the dumbbells , kettlebells , Olympic weightlifting platforms, pull-up bars, cross trainers and even your lucky deadlifting t-shirt. The most important piece of ‘equipment’ in the entire gym is that guy standing above you on the bench press, making sure you don’t decapitate yourself while going for a new PR.

#24: Figure out how many macros you want to eat daily. The macronutrients are protein, carbs, and fat. A good goal for slow but steady fat loss in conjunction with exercise is 25 percent protein, 30-40 percent carbs, and 30-40 percent fat but this can be adjusted to your needs.
The Best Full Gym Chest Workout
101 Best Workouts Of All Time is the ultimate answer to the question "What workout should I do?" No matter what equipment you have available, from a fully-stocked supergym to a pair of mismatched dumbbells in your garage, or nothing but your body weight alone, you can build muscle, lose fat, and sculpt the physique you've always wanted.
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.
The Truth About Strength Training Program
That’s the logic behind The Truth About Strength Training program—a 12-week workout and diet plan I wrote for regular, busy people who want to get the most benefit from the least amount of effort. It requires four lifting sessions that shouldn’t take more than an hour to complete each and will have you setting new personal records on your squat, bench press, and deadlift in no time.
5 Form Flaws You Need to Correct Now
Just because you’re doing an exercise the way you’ve always done it doesn’t mean you’re doing it right. We get it: Nothing gets under your skin quite like some random dude at the gym telling you your form is off. Even if you know he’s right, you immediately hate that guy. (It’s cool, we do, too.) But the bitter truth is he’s usually right. (And if he cares enough to say something, you should probably thank him.) Ignore him and, well, you’re setting yourself up for hurting a lot more than just your pride. Instead, prevent injury—and a wounded ego—and correct the most common workout mistakes that we’ve noticed guys making in the gym.
Winter Mass Part 1
It serves as a good definition for training, because the truth is that, for most of us, all that really matters is size. That’s right. How big and solid you are is likely the most important thing you care about when it comes to hitting the gym. Sure, being cut, ripped, and defined is important, but overall, if you build mass, you stick out in a crowd, and are the envy of all who look upon you.When we think of size, we can categorize it in two ways. The first is simply pure, lean muscle mass, the kind you would expect to build from a hypertrophy-based program with a diet designed to cut fat. The second, and the basis for this article, is the development of sheer size, the kind you want when bulking up for the winter. You know, the muscle mass that will stretch out the arms and chest area of long-sleeved shirts and pull apart the buttons of your dress shirts on formal occasions.

Build a Set of Monstrous Quads with our "Quad Thrust" Routine
Start with a moderate weight that you can handle for at least 15 reps. Varying your foot position will allow you to hit your quads from a variety of angles. Keep your back against the pad during the full movement; don't risk injury to your lower back by rolling your tailbone under as you lower the weight. Lower the weight slowly, then push through your heels on the upward portion of the movement. The pace should be slow and controlled on the way down and explosive on the way up. Consider pyramiding up in weight for each set, but make sure to get at least 10 reps.
The Lightening Deadlift
The lightning deadlift was inspired by the late Bob Peoples of Tennessee, the first man to deadlift over 700 pounds. Bob would lift a weight out of a jack at lockout height. He would then lower the weight to the floor and lift it back up, taking advantage of the stretch reflex. I’m not sure if Bob knew why it worked, but he knew it did. Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. People’s!
