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.

10 Training Tips for Gaining Lean Muscle

Hitting the gym twice a week is fine if you want to maintain the muscle you already have, but if you are shooting to add some size you should consider increasing your training frequency to 4-5 times per week. Even though these sessions may need to be a bit shorter to allow for recovery , the increased exposure to a training stimulus can be helpful in packing on mass .

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.

12 Concepts Bodybuilders Should Use Every Day

HEALTH: In reference to his cigarette smoking and junk-food tendencies, Mike Mentzer once declared that he wasn’t a “health nut,” he was a bodybuilder. He died at age 49. If you focus on bodybuilding through the prism of pro contests and the endless pursuit of more size and cuts, then it’s easy to lose sight of the health-boosting components of our sport. Don’t make that mistake. A regular exercise program coupled with a muscle-growing fat-deflecting diet, nutrient supplementation and adequate rest is a health-building lifestyle. Health and bodybuilding should go hand in hand.

6 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.

Human Growth Hormone: Everything You Need to Know About HGH

The body naturally produces growth hormone (HGH or simply GH) in the pituitary gland, and, as its name implies, it is responsible for cell growth and regeneration. Increasing muscle mass and bone density are impossible without GH, but it also plays a major role in maintaining the health of all human tissue, including that of the brain and other vital organs. When secreted, GH remains active in the bloodstream for only a few minutes, but this is enough time for the liver to convert it into growth factors, the most crucial of which is insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF-1, which boasts a host of anabolic properties. Scientists began to harvest GH from the pituitary glands of cadavers in the 1950s, but didn’t synthesize the first HGH in laboratories until 1981, with its use as a performance-enhancing drug becoming popular shortly thereafter.

Consuming a large amount of calories is a must if you want to pack on muscle mass for a larger, stronger, more powerful frame. However, food alone won't get you to the promised land. To achieve this sought-after balance of muscular harmony, you need to build quality muscle mass through a combination of diet and exercise.

8 Best Cable Exercises for a Big Back

Want a huge, attention-grabbing upper body that shows off your muscles and strength even under a boring T-shirt? You need to focus on building a big back. Hammering the side of your upper body that you can’t see in the mirror will do more for your physique, athleticism, and power than another bicep curl ever could.

Five Strategies to Beef Up Your Calves

The function of your tibialis is to pull your feet toward your shins. Growing these small muscles will not make a notable difference in leg circumference. However, when developed, they provide detail and depth to the front of calves, and training them helps prevent shin splints (a common running injury). Some gyms have tibialis machines. If yours doesn’t, sit on a lying leg curl machine and position your toes directly under the ankle pads. Pull your toes up and back toward your shins, lifting the weight. Very little resistance is required to work your tibialis.

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.

Survival Plan

Pomegranate may be a new ally in the pursuit of a balanced gut environment. Not only are fresh pomegranate seeds a good way to add fiber to your diet, but early in vitro studies on pomegranate extract have explored how naturally occurring plant compounds in pomegranates called polyphenols may also help to provide an environment for good gut bacteria to thrive. A small preliminary study of 20 healthy individuals who took pomegranate extract suggests, but does not prove, that these poly- phenols may work as prebiotics, which feed the microbes in our gut to promote the right balance of beneficial bacteria.

7 Curls for Bigger Biceps

To develop an impressive set of biceps you need to target the muscles from every angle. That’s right, we said muscles. The biceps brachii (long and short heads), as well as the medial head and brachioradialis (forearm) must all receive some (tough and exhausting) love in order for you to achieve attention-grabbing guns. How do you do that? With proper exercise selection and rotation, and consistently altering things like rep speed, weights used, and sets completed.

Want Abs Like These? Here's How to Eat to Get Them

But your body needs a wake-up call every once in a while. It needs to be challenged and catered to just like your muscles. You don’t do the same workout every day and expect constant progress (and if you do, consider this your wake-up call to change that up, too.) Aside from a solid eating routine, you'll need a fresh workout routine too. The Spring TRIM UP program drops is coming to on Sunday, February 28th, 2016 —complete with daily workouts and video demonstrations. All will be available at

Terry Crews Talks About Fighting Porn Addiction

In this recently posted video, Crews talks about the struggles he's had over the years with pornography, and the consequences he's suffered as a result of his addiction to it. "For years, years, years, I was addicted to pornography," said Crews. "It really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways, and the Internet allowed my little secret to stay and grow. Pornography changes the way you think about people, they become objects, and things to be used, rather than people to be loved."

5 Worst Things to Do for Building Bigger Triceps

If I had a nickel for every time a person asked me to “make a muscle,” I would be one wealthy dude. The funny thing is, when I get that request I am always tempted to flex my back or calf since all they asked for was a muscle. Of course, however, I know what it is they want to see, and that is the biceps. But what most people don’t realize is that it is actually the triceps that create most of the arms’ mass, so when a lifter throws up an arm and puts on a gun show, they are actually gawking at more tri than bi.

Clock Watching

If your goal is to shorten your workout, do not sacrifice intensity for time. Make sure you get enough rest between sets. Intensity, after all, is the strength or power with which you resist the weight, and it has to be at or near its maximum for every set. Just as I never lollygag my way through a workout, neither am I concerned with rushing it. I don’t count seconds or minutes between sets, but I do rest just long enough to catch my breath so I can give a hearty effort on the next set. Now, I’ve reached a level of efficiency where I get an optimum workout in a very short amount of time.
