Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, February 23, 2015

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - Don't dismiss someone's concerns too quickly, because it's less critical to you than it is to the person who confides in you. You might lose out on an opportunity to move a relationship into new realms of intimacy if you're unwilling to participate in a heartfelt discussion. However, total resolution isn't necessary yet. Find a way to be supportive without getting swept up in a false sense of urgency. There really isn't a rush as long as you are sincerely engaging in the process.

10-Minute Blast for Powerful Triceps

Because of the weight loads used, failure is inevitable – and that’s a good thing. Even if you’re able to muscle through 15 reps on your first work segment, you will find that failure comes sooner and sooner on each subsequent set – that’s okay. Take a breath and get right back into it, have a training partner help you through a few forced reps, or continue on using partial reps. The point is to continue moving throughout the set. If none of the aforementioned methods work, try lightening the load next time.

The Starter's Guide Workout

If you've ever stopped at 10 reps when you could have done 12 or 13 or 14, then you've shortchanged your potential gains in size and strength. We've written already about not trying to push your body too far, too fast, and going to failure would constitute going too far. Nevertheless, you need to at least approach failure if you want to make progress. Not getting close enough to your physical limitations can be just as ineffective as pushing yourself too far. "You will notice that a rep range of 10 to 12 is prescribed," Trink says. "What this means is that you are shooting to get 12 reps where you could get only one more. That's called 'leaving one in the tank.' If you can get only 10 or 11 reps, that's fine. If you can't quite manage 10, then you went too heavy and need to back off the weight on the next set. And if you feel like you could have gotten 15, you went too light."

Weight Training for Your Body Type

The same kind of training will not work for every body type. Just as different trees require differing amounts of water and sunlight, differing body types require different stimuli in different amounts. No one program can effectively train all three body types. Some people need lower reps, and more rest, while others need higher reps and shorter rest periods. It all depends on you and your body.

5 Unconventional Forearm Exercises

Some people are blessed with great forearms – the kind that grow and pop with no direct work, whatsoever. Then there are the rest of us who have to, you know, train hard and stuff. And for the legions of dutiful forearm trainers out there that may want to move beyond the typical 3-4 sets of wrist curls at the end of arm day, there is hope. The versatility of your forearm musculature allows you train them through several angles and with multiplanar movement that will dig into undertrained fibers and provide you the boulder swole you’re looking for.

4 Ways to Accelerate Your Fat-Loss

Here’s the reality when it comes to burning fat, losing weight and adding muscle. Everyone responds differently when it comes to diet and training—there's no one-size-fits-all approach. There's only the approach that works best for you.

How to Lose 15 Pounds in 5 Days

To achieve rapid weight loss, you’ll have to alter your diet. Fat loss has always been about calories in versus calories out. For ultimate fat loss in five days, planning ahead is best. Slowly start dropping carbs from your diet a few weeks prior to your five-day “cut” until you’re eating less than 50 grams a day. Then, the real weight loss will happen during those days where you’re at less than 50 grams of carbs.

Easy Gains for the Hardgainer

An individual who has a naturally “smaller” frame and lighter bone structure, and carries little body fat and muscle. Beginning your bodybuilding journey with this somatotype isn’t exactly ideal, but you could be in a less favorable position— as in, the polar opposite body type. Keep in mind, people’s somatotypes—ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph—are not cut and dry, meaning certain individuals can fall somewhere in the middle of a somatotype. First, a quick overview of the three somatotypes and their accompanying characteristics.

7 Foods You Should Eat Raw Rather Than Cooked

This means if you eat cooked food, you’re more likely to gain weight, while people who eat raw food are more inclined to lose weight. Why? Highly processed food is more digestible; it’s softer and requires less energy from our bodies to break it down. (Keep in mind that digestibility changes and varies.) Starch becomes more resistant to digestion when it cools after being cooked so the enzymes can’t break down as easily. Stale food, like day-old cooked spaghetti, will provide you with fewer calories than a plate of spaghetti eaten straight from the stove; both technically have the same amount of calories, but very different outcomes.

Top 25 Fitness Tips and Strategies from the Experts

Are you tired of putting in the effort at the gym and not seeing results? Many people show the drive, determination, and consistent effort, but don’t reach their goals. If this sounds familiar, the next logical step is usually to find an educated personal trainer with proven experience. But, if you’re not ready to take that step, or if you’d prefer to go it alone, rest assured, we spoke to some of the nation’s finest personal trainers who gave us 25 insightful tips and strategies specifically designed to help you build strength, gain muscle mass, lose fat, enhance your endurance and maintain healthy eating habits.

The Ultimate Leg-Training Workout

All bodyparts should be trained from a variety of angles to maximize musclefiber recruitment. This advice becomes even more important with legs since your quads are composed of four different muscles, the hamstrings are made up of three and a slew of fibers “come in from the north, south, east and west” to form your glutes, Peterson says. “It’s not just about squatting and driving up,” he explains. “You can tweak your stance, and you can change where the load is by doing front squats, back squats and one-leg movements. A lot of people just do it by rote or don’t do it at all.”

Four Ultra-High-Intensity Fat-Burning Circuits

"This workout uses a 2 to 1 work to rest ratio, one of the most effective ways to program a calorie torching routine while giving your body just enough rest to keep the intensity high. This is a great combination of movements because you can do it almost anywhere. Get creative while using the same format and sub in some of your favorites once a week to mix it up."

Make Heavy Rope Training Part of Your Workout Routine

You’re also going to need something to anchor the rope. If it’s a pole, post or tree, loop the rope around it to give you two even lengths - holding one end in each hand. If it’s a person, have them grab the rope at the middle, and make sure they’re strong enough to handle the fury coming their way. Heavy rope training can get intense, so whatever anchor you use, be sure it’s secure.

The Five Pillars of Good Nutrition

Regardless of whether you're looking to get bigger, leaner, or healthier, you'll need to follow a core set of principles that lay the groundwork for your diet plan.

Power Moves for a More Powerful Back

ANSWER: Considering its size relative to other body parts and the role it plays in your overall strength, the back is definitely an area in which you want to build power . Although there may not be as many power-building moves designed specifically for the back as there are for, say, the legs, I do have a favorite that’s sure to deliver the kind of strength—not to mention muscularity—you’re looking for. I call it the dumbbell power row .

Five Weeks to Washboard Abs

While the keys that drive our five-week program are variety and progression, it would be a mistake to think that’s all that’s required to build washboard abs. Pay particular attention to your diet - monitoring carb and fat intake, total calories and following a smart supplementation program - while including four 30-minute cardio sessions a week to strip off bodyfat. Only through a combination of these elements can you truly bring out a ripped six-pack.

Top 5 Muscle-Building Exercises for the Back

When you see someone walking around the gym with a  big back , you can guarantee they can jump up and kill 15-20  pull-ups  without even breaking a sweat. See the connection? Pull-ups and chin-ups are two of the best mass builders for the back. Targeting the lats, shoulders, biceps and grip, these exercises have so many different varieties, you’ll never get bored.

The Get-Rid-of-Your-Man-Boobs Workout

Get into pushup position and lower your body until your chest is about an inch above the floor. Explosively push yourself up so that your hands leave the floor and your body rises into the air. Clap your hands in midair, “catch” yourself on the way down, and use the momentum to begin the next rep.

5 Muscle-Shocking Methods You Forgot All About

To introduce rest-pause training into your routine, start by picking one exercise at the beginning of your routine, preferably a heavy hitter like back squats, bench press, etc. After a thorough warm-up, load the bar with a weight that equates to somewhere between your 3- and 5-rep max. Get under the bar and perform one repetition. Rest 15-30 seconds, then repeat. Aim to complete 10 sets. Once you can get all 10 with good form , increase the weight for your next session. Because rest-pause training can be extremely taxing, start with only one or two exercises a week and progress up.

25 Ways to Get Stronger Now

If you can't lock out your elbows on the bench press, try setting the safety rails in a power rack at about your sticking point on the lift. Put roughly 100 pounds more than your one-rep maximum weight on the bar and then try to press it — naturally, you won't be able to move the bar but try hard anyway for six to 10 seconds. Do four to six reps, resting a few seconds in between, and then lighten the load to the weight you usually have trouble locking out. Your central nervous system should now be sufficiently fired up for you to lift it.

Time Crunch Training: 15-Minutes to Wider Shoulders

The workout is another 4-exercise giant set , combing different loading patterns and movement speeds. If you’re unfamiliar with the clean high pull, you can replace it with a Barbell Upright Row to the chest. As you fatigue in the later rounds, during the overhead press, avoid leaning backward and over arching your back. Try placing one foot in front of the other, to help you stay upright.

Front Squat Common Mistakes in the Front Squat with Dan Green


4. The Garhammer Raise was invented by Dr. Richard Herrrick. In the early 1970s, Dr. John Garhammer wrote an article for a weightlifting magazine called International Olympic Lifter in which he discussed a version of the reverse sit-up that he learned from Dr. Richard Herrick. With this exercise you start with your legs crossed and then lift your hips, pulling your knees towards your chest. Although this exercise activates the entire area of the rectus abdominis, it strongly works the subumbilical (below the belly button) section of the abdominals. Because Dr. Garhammer wrote the article, bodybuilding writers started calling the exercise the “Garhammer raise,” and the name stuck.

We don't have to settle for the drugstore brands anymore. Sure, there are some great brands out there, and I am not going to say stop using them. Hell, I use them, too. But I'm sure you've noticed that women (maybe your mom, your girlfriend, your sister) have access to a myriad of products that combat all of the various skin issues that inevitably arise. Well, luxury companies have seen the lust in men’s eyes and have decided to do something about it. Here, I've picked a few of my favorite splurge products that prove worthy of their price tags.

4 Tips for the Beginning Weightlifter

For someone who had to order his first pair of weightlifting shoes a size and a half too big because of the lack of availability, this surge in popularity is very exciting. It also brings about a new problem: there’s now a whole army of new weightlifters who have no clue what they’re doing! For something as technical as weightlifting, it’s not as easy as watching a YouTube video and heading to the gym armed with your newfound Internet knowledge.

10 Reasons You're Not Building Muscle

Packing on muscle is no easy feat regardless of whether you're a string bean or a husky guy. And why you're missing out on gains is typically caused by a number of reasons that can be easily avoided. So if you're frustrated about being stuck in the place and at the same weight, it's time to assess what you're doing and make a change.

Should You Park Your Carbs?

If you’re following a traditional low-to-moderate carb program to reduce bodyfat, you can benefit from a high-carb day without the complexity of the more restrictive carb-rotation plan. On an average day, you should consume 1–1.25 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight, or 180–225 grams for a 180-pounder. Then, during one meal a week, boost your carbs significantly for one meal only. Take in as many carbs as you want or can, 250–400 grams worth, emphasizing starches and fast-digesting sources such as sugar. At this meal, try to keep fat intake in check to get a greater insulin response.
