To get a bearing on what we were going to do I had to ask. Normally I wouldn't but Sheena had something on the agenda for Blaine that I did have some concerns about. Nothing dangerous, but something that has been a trigger for him a few times in the past (he is autistic) BUT we are working on this so this was a good thing. I needed to know if I was going to end up bent over a bucket or passed out on the floor so I could let her know.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, February 7, 2015

Sunday, February 8, 2015 - Although you may already have exciting plans in place, the future is not set in stone. In fact, the Moon's presence in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals indicates there are multiple possibilities on the horizon. You're not tied to one specific outcome anymore, so feel free to envision a variety of adventures in your mind before choosing one to make real. Exploring fantasies about your great escape is the first step to making it a reality. Plant the seeds of tomorrow in your dreams today.

How Many Sets is Enough

The American College of Sports Medicine Journal in 2002 published “A Meta-analysis to Determine the Dose Response for Strength Development.” Looking at the results, in a number of different studies, scientists determined advanced trainees need to perform an average of four sets to make the same gains that a beginner could make with one set. A number of studies show that high-volume, multiple set protocols cause a much more favorable hormonal response contrasted to single set protocols. Recently, science has questioned the role of the acute hormonal response and its role in hypertrophy, but a 2010 meta-analysis entitled “Single vs. multiple set of resistance exercise for muscle hypertrophy” shows the superiority of multiple sets for hypertrophy, echoing the findings of “Quantitative analysis of single vs. multiple-set programs in resistance training.”

The Speed Conditioning Workout

Here’s what you need to know about speed training. There’s speed strength, which is applying maximum force at high velocities (like a power clean or snatch), and there’s speed conditioning, being able to maintain running speed for about seven seconds or longer. Both types of speed training can benefit athletes of all experience levels since being able to accelerate quickly then slow down correctly can prevent injury in the gym and workplace. Not to mention, speed gives athletes a critical advantage over their competition in the field of play. “This workout focuses on the technical component of speed training, going over the movements to perform at an optimal level,” says Curtis Williams, C.P.T., P.E.S., and former NFL wide receiver. “The moves are specific to building speed, and it works.” Blast through this performance-boosting speed workout to burn fat, get faster, and improve endurance.

Perfect Your Form for Precise Military Presses

The military, or overhead, press is not only a better overall muscle builder than the bench press, it also provides more practical applications to sports and life. Still, most guys can’t move a lot of weight on this lift, because they don’t know the proper technique. Use these tips to put up bigger numbers.

Explosive, Closed and Open-Chain Workouts for Mass Gain

No, it isn't a program for environmentalists, though they're more than welcome to take part in it. ECO stands for Explosive, Closed-chain and Open-chain exercises. Explosive exercises are plyometric or ballistic-type movements such as squat jumps, depth jumps from a bench and clap push-ups. Closed-chain exercises are those in which your hands or feet remain stationary and your body moves (think squats, push-ups and pull-ups). With open-chain moves, the resistance is in your hands or at your feet, such as leg extensions and most barbell and dumbbell upper-body exercises.

7 Easy Ways to Beat Bloat

It’s tempting to skip a workout when you’ve dedicated the day to bumming around on the beach, but don’t glue yourself to a lounge chair the second you’ve taken your last bite of lunch. “Going for a brisk walk after a meal can increase the speed of digestion and help food move quickly through your GI tract,” says Palinski-Wade. Exercise can also work to expel excess gas from your intestinal tract, helping your body beat bloat. Beach volleyball, anyone?

(Not Quite) Barn-Door Delts

So perhaps barn-door-wide delts aren’t quite the “ideal” goal. Instead, let’s take a surer, saner aim — how about shoulders with development among all three heads of the muscle? Shoulders that display proportional aesthetics, perfectly topping a classic V-shape silhouette, with impressive size and striations to boot.

10 HIIT Workouts to Get You Shredded for Summer

High intensity interval training (HIIT) has the fitness industry buzzing because of its potential to torch maximum calories in a minimum amount of time. The idea is that you do short periods of all-out work followed by short periods of active rest to make the body work harder than it does during steady-state cardio. Now that summer is here, there are absolutely no excuses for whipping yourself back into beach-body shape. To capitalize on the benefits of HIIT, we reached out to George “Hit” Richards, celebrity fitness trainer and calisthenics expert, and Pete Bommarito, C.S.C.S., U.S.A.W., a certified MAT Jumpstart Specialist and owner of Bommarito Performance Systems, for a variety of interval workouts designed to burn fat, build muscle, and enhance sports performance. Get in the best shape of your life (and look like it, too) with these 10 fat-blasting interval workouts.

5 Ways to Get Motivated

Use a Line of Questioning You'd think that every NFL prospect is intrinsically (or internally) motivated. But that's just not the case. The guys at AP are talented, but even the best of the best need to be pushed every now and then. Even though prospects know that they're supposed to take a plunge in a cold tub and grab a post-workout shake after sessions, some are reluctant. "Every single year," says Winkelman, "we struggle with certain guys who don't want to get in the pool." And often, the guys who skip the extra work are the guys out of the NFL in 2-3 years.

Think Before You Lift

So, as you can see, plenty of thought goes into the creation of each my workouts, but after 20 straight years in the gym I believe that a very analytical approach to training is necessary in order to continue to progress at this point in my career. I hope the points listed above will help you to make every one of your workouts more efficient and effective.

6 Surprisingly Healthy Beers

While many wouldn’t equate beer with a healthy diet, it’s been said that a few brews per serving/outing isn’t the worst thing for you—as long as they’re light beers, and hence, low in calories and carbs. The problem, of course, is that most “light” beers tend to be “light” in flavor and therefore your enjoyment. Which begs the question; what’s the point of drinking two beers if they taste like watered-down crap? So here’s a list of beers—sans the “light label”—that are either surprisingly low in cals and carbs, or provide a nutritional/health kick that few know about. As always fellas, drink in moderation.

Ask Men's Fitness: Why Do I Wake Up Craving Crappy Food?

"I wake up in the morning craving greasy food. It’s the first thought to crystallize in my mind. Is this common, and what can I do about it?" —Charlie C., Nashville, TN Your cravings are perfectly normal, and they aren’t coming from nowhere. If you wake up dreaming of bacon , you’ve likely enjoyed more than a few bacon-heavy breakfasts. It was probably a positive experience, or the “neurological reward of a rush of calories,” says Susan B. Roberts, Ph.D., professor of nutrition and psychiatry at Tufts University in Boston. You want to reproduce that rush, thus the craving. To get rid of it, you have to replace it with a new craving. Roberts says two weeks is usually enough time to establish a new habit. Wake up to something delicious but healthy, like an egg-white and spinach whole- wheat wrap, and with enough time you’ll be craving that instead.

There’s something important you’re not doing—and you’re far from alone in your torpidity, because most Americans are every bit as lax as you are on this score. Too many guys aren’t filling the recommended half of their plates with fruit and vegetables, and if you’re part of this crowd it’s something you’ll need to address, because your diet is likely deficient in the vitamins , minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals your body needs for optimum health—and no, canned fruit and fruit juices don’t count.

If you thought essential fatty acids were a settled subject, think again. A new study just presented at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (N.S.C.A.) conference suggests that sports nutrition scientists have long been missing the mark on EFAs. It proposes that trained athletes looking to increase muscle mass, strength, and anaerobic power would benefit by supplementing an omega-6 called arachidonic acid (ARA). This advice is, of course, in stark contrast with the traditional recommendations for omega-3 supplements. How did we discover the importance of this omega fat, and what does this new information mean for athletes and everyday fitness enthusiasts? As one of the scientists driving and funding this research, FLEX has asked me to come by and bring everyone up to date.

John Meadows' Scrape the Rack Press

I had given up entirely on overhead pressing, but then he discovered the scrape the rack press. Over time, I've found that -- coupled with side lateral variations -- scrape the rack presses produce substantial growth in my delts with little to no risk of injury. Also, I've found that a variation of the scrape the rack press is a great fix for underdeveloped traps. It really hits the entire shoulder and upper back/trap areas. To really learn this lift, check out the video of John Schlecht and I performing scrape the rack press and its trap variation. I think if you give these a try, you'll love them.
