Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - You might get into an unexpected squabble today with a coworker or family member who tries to talk you into doing something that you don't want to do. You can even exchange some harsh words if things get heated, but ultimately your actions will speak louder and clearer than anything you could possibly say. If you feel the need to express your feelings now, allow your behavior to reveal what's in your heart and let the chips fall where they may.

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.

6 Best Intermediate Chest Workouts For Building Muscle!

After the barbell bench press, do the dumbbell press on an adjustable bench so you can slightly raise the angle to a very modest incline. In addition, use a Hammer Strength chest press, but sit crosswise on the machine rather than straight on, allowing you to push across your body, which works your middle-chest fibers in a fashion they're not accustomed to. You'll do these one arm at a time before finishing off with a single-joint exercise for the middle pecs to chase that muscle pump.

8 At-Home Workouts Under 10 Minutes to Help You Lose Weight and Build Muscle

Most of us have the option of going to the gym at two points in the day: before work, or after work. Both of these timeframes are peak hours which means the crowd factor is at a 10. Locker rooms, crowded. Showers, crowded. Dumbbell rack, crowded. Benches, crowded... and sweaty. You get the point. Your mood is affected, your workouts suffer, and results can dwindle. Not to mention, everyone looks at you like you're a jerk because you're trying to do a superset or a circuit.

It forced her, amazingly, to eat healthy foods. “If I ate something that was made with chemicals, it tasted disgusting to me, like a filthy ashtray or a science experiment. I ended up with a bizarre craving for spinach. I couldn’t get enough of it. Even though chemo is the nastiest thing in the world, it gave me clean eating that my body craved. So I ended up with an appreciation for clean eating that I never had before.”

The 25 Best Exercises for Your Lower Abs

First, a quick physiology lesson: Your rectus abdominis is really one, long muscle that includes both your "upper" and "lower" abs. So, there are no exercises that explicitly isolate either half individually (even though you may "feel the burn" more so in one area than other). Still, there are things you can do to really make that lower area pop, says Don Saladino, CPT, owner of  Drive 495 . Number 1, diet is key: remember that training your core muscles alone simply isn’t enough—you need to have discipline in the kitchen, too. Second, switching up your routine by shocking your core with new exercises will help eliminate your love handles and define those elusive sex-lines. Last, work in exercises that attack your rectus abdominis and obliques simultaneously for good measure (that V line is where these two muscles meet). Here are 25 moves to add in to your routine.

Top 10 Muscle and Strength Building Moves

While everyone who goes to the gym to lift weights has their own set of specific goals, one common thread that runs through most is the desire to get bigger and stronger . Bodybuilders are unique bunch in that they look to build every muscle in the body to the greatest possible degree, while trying to make sure everything remains in perfect proportion and symmetry. Because of this they must utilize a myriad of specific and varied exercises for each body part, so that every muscle fiber and motor unit pool is exhausted at every workout.

9 Foods For Effective Clean Bulking

One of the worst bulking misconceptions is you have free reign to eat, and eat, and eat some more with wild abandon and disregard for sugar, carbs, and salt. You won't fill out your frame with lean muscle and minimal fat. But you will bulk your gut with visceral fat. What you really need to do is increase your training volume and your calories with the right kind of food.

17 Actionable Takeaways From My 1st Year of Podcast Guests - Official Website of Joe DeFranco & DeFranco’s Gym!

This week, Joe celebrates his 1-year “Podcastiversary” by reviewing his Top 17 Takeaways from the guests that appeared on the Industrial Strength Show!

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.

Put Some Polish On Your Front Delts

The deltoids are composed of three heads — front, middle and rear. Shoulder presses build mass on the front and middle delts, but you need a variety of raises to put laser-like focus on each head individually. Most workouts should involve lateral raises for the middle delts and bent-over lateral raises for the rear delts. To put some extra polish on your front delts, a great exercise is barbell front raises. Stand holding a barbell across the front of your thighs with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Hold the barbell with an overhand grip, with your hands spaced about shoulder-width apart. Lift the bar straight up and out in front of your body until your arms are just past parallel to the floor. Pause for a moment at the top before slowly lowering the bar back to the start.

Bad Shoulders or Low Testosterone?

Which format is better? First, consider that because people have such busy schedules today, they sometimes skip the last few exercises in their workouts. If structural balance is a major concern for you, perform these exercises first. To show you why, I’ll tell you about a woman I trained years ago who broke the world record in the bench press. Before she broke that record, I determined that weakness in the muscles that externally rotated her shoulders was affecting her strength. To correct this structural imbalance, I had her perform workouts in which she performed rotator cuff exercises before she bench pressed.

The No-Situp Ab Workout

When you think of ab exercises , the first one that usually comes to mind is the situp. While the situp is OK when performed properly, there's other options that place less strain on the neck, spine, and lower back, especially for people who spend countless hours sitting or working at a computer. "Spinal flexion," which basically means you sit in a hunched crunched position for too long, is similar to a situp, and over time, can cause numerous problems including poor posture, pain, and decreased performance.

Bigger, Stronger & Faster In A Garage Gym • Zach Even-Esh

The last gym I attended was in college which was 9 years ago. I been training in my garage(s) since then. You give me just a barbell and 300lbs. I’ll get damn strong. You give new just a keg. I’ll get damn strong. You give me a pair of 50lb Dumbbells. I’ll get damn strong and become a reppin’ beast for that matter. Equipments are tools. The mind-set, the approach, the passion is what’s going to turn you into a beast. I’ve trained some friends and some random bystanders LOL. They are always underwhelmed by the equipment I had (which is technically next to nothing in their eyes) but they always leave overwhelmed. Keep preaching!

A Tribute to Maris Anne Sternberg

She had no problem telling you how she felt and pissed me off a couple times (that I can't for the sake of me remember except for the fact that I probably deserved it).  My point is she knew and loved lifters. She knew how to support them and communicate with them in ways very few ever do. We respected her and loved her being at the meets. She always had a way to make the meet just a little better. Her encouragement and smile is what I remember the most and she will be missed.  The few times I shared lunch with her and others I almost died laughing.

Q&A with Bodybuilding Legend, Frank Zane

Steve Reeves. Dave Draper. Arnold Schwarzenegger. These names and more are synonymous with an era in bodybuilding, “the Golden Age,” which is revered even today by bodybuilding fans. Hallmarks of this period, which roughly spanned the ’50s through the ’80s, included broad shoulders, trim waists, sweeping thighs, and an overall body shape that could be described as “heroic.” Yet of all the champions who competed during the era, one man’s name is invoked more frequently than others when talk turns to the ideal physique: Frank Zane. Known as “Mr. Symmetry,” Zane captured three Mr. Olympia titles, a Mr. America, Mr. World, and three Mr. Universes. Competing at only 190 pounds, Zane was one of the lightest bodybuilders to ever win the overall title at the Olympia, and he’s also one of only three people to beat Arnold in a bodybuilding contest (the 1968 Mr. Universe). Zane was much more than a bodybuilder, though. He taught chemistry and math for 13 years; in fact, he was teaching full-time when he won his first Olympia.

Rest Periods Between Sets

Are long or short rest periods best for growth?

Getting Big Vs. Getting Strong

This is called Compensatory Acceleration Training (CAT). Lots of bodybuilders do this unknowingly when doing a set of 12 reps – the first 3-4 reps are explosive, while the next 8-9 reps have a little less steam. Whether they know it or not, they are getting beneficial adaptations from the dynamic method for strength gains in the first few reps. Your first rep is always your strongest – from that point on you are getting weaker – so exerting maximum force from the get-go can help you dynamically increase muscle tension.

Are You Metabolically Ungifted? Try This!

By reading the title of this article, I think we all know what body type I am targeting here. The innately strong, larger boned, endomorph body type. These individuals grow muscle quickly, but unfortunately slap on tons of body fat and water to go along with it. Here’s a training and nutrition plan for the endomorph.

Your IT Band is Not the Enemy (But Maybe Your Foam Roller Is)

The truth is that glut med weakness is an incredibly common issue . If you have IT band pain and want to test for glute med weakness in yourself you’ll probably need a friend to help. Lay down on your side in a straight line and make sure your hips are stacked on top of one another. Now with your legs out straight bring your top leg, whichever it may be, back a bit so that your toe is touching the heel of your bottom foot. Now flex your ankle and try to raise your leg.
