Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, March 11, 2016

Friday, March 11, 2016 - It's more than likely that you recently devoted your energy to pursuing pleasure instead of getting your work done. It's time to pay the piper by catching up on your chores today, even if that means turning down a leisurely lunch or an evening out with your friends. However, attempting to do everything at once only creates more complications. The most straightforward route to success is traveled by prioritizing your tasks now and then attacking them in order, one after another, until you are finished. A goal without a plan is just a wish.

9 Ways to Cut Water Weight and Reveal Your Abs

There is good news though, you can naturally help your body get rid of that extra water so that you can reveal those hard-earned abs. Note: flushing excess water to reveal muscle definition will only work if you have a low body fat percentage. If you don't fall into that category just yet, work on getting there before you blame water weight for hindering your reveal. Check out these tips to help you showcase that six-pack.

Here’s What the "Ideal Male Body" Looks Like in 19 Countries Around the World

The U.K.-based Internet medical service Superdrug Online Doctor (weird name, we know) commissioned graphic designers from 19 countries around the world to Photoshop one image of a man to reflect what the designers imagined would reflect their country’s preferences. (The project drew inspiration from journalist Esther Honig’s 2014 " Before and After " series, in which she asked 25 designers around the world to retouch her photo according to local beauty standards.)

5 Rules for Gaining Mass

If you'’re looking to add muscle mass to your frame, hitting the weights hard is a given. Quality time in the gym begins a cascade of changes that will stimulate your muscles to grow bigger in response to the challenges you throw their way. It'’s tempting to think that'’s all it takes to add muscle to your body. After all, you can actually feel your biceps growing after an intense set of curls. That pump is tangible, real-time biofeedback to let you know that blood is flowing to your muscle cells, beginning a chain of events that stimulates protein synthesis. Maybe that'’s why it's easy to overlook how important good nutrition is in the mass-building equation. When you choose to eat, say, chicken instead of ice cream, there'’s no immediate muscle gratification -- no pump to keep you motivated. Make no mistake: Eating for muscle is just as important as lifting for muscle. The foods you grab in the morning on the way to work, the meals you pack for lunch and mid-afternoon, what you put into your body immediately following your workout, and your final meal of the day impact your results as much as, if not more than, the number of reps you squeeze out at the end of a set.

7 Winning Strategies for Growth

Backstage after bodybuilding contests, some competitors from second to last have ready excuses for their performances. These range from illness and injury to incompetent judges to “a freak of nature” victor — any of which may or may not be true. Meanwhile, some accept all blame for their fate — whether or not they deserve it — and are already strategizing what they’ll do different next time. Invariably, the latter make the greatest improvements, while those who always have an excuse for losing almost always have cause to use it.You can either be reactive or proactive. When you’re reactive, you blame outside circumstances and other people for obstacles or failures. By inference, there was nothing you could’ve done differently. When you’re proactive, you take responsibility for everything in your life and, because you’ve assumed control, you can anticipate difficulties, then devise a plan and take actions for overcoming any circumstance.

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.

The 2016 Starter's Guide Workout Program

As you progress, you can introduce machines to further isolate and overload the muscles and even to work around any nagging injuries you may have. But for now, stick with what’s written here. “When starting a new workout program, focusing on the fundamentals is key,” says Grinnell. “Pushing, pulling, and squatting heavy weight is what it’s all about. Throw in some arms, calves, and abdominal work with the right amount of cardio and you have a solid workout plan.”

100-Rep Sets

Alternately, you can work 100s into your usual routine as a shock treatment. Do an occasional century set session for a lagging body part, or rotate such workouts so that all body parts get the treatment from time to time. Not only can this jump-start new growth, but it can also recharge your training in general, especially when you have nagging injuries. Don’t have time for your usual workout, or your joints are still reeling from your last one? Do one set per exercise for 100 reps. Such a routine will be faster and also allow you to train around injuries. You may look a little crazy and a lot weaker doing marathon sets. But, if used only occasionally, 100s is a smart way to foster heavyweight gains.

The Classic Physique Debate

Bodybuilding is both a sport and an art, but that only begins to explain the tension. First, it’s the most subjective of all athletic contests. Which physique is ideal? Do you favor more mass or better proportions? Monster quads or a greater flow to the whole? And as art, styles clash, as if a lifelike sculpture by Michelangelo is next to an abstract painting by Picasso. Is bodybuilding foremost about the pursuit of harmonious refinements or the avant-garde urge to shock? On one side is Team Aesthetic, on the other is Team Freaky. And somewhere in the middle are men, like five-time Mr. Olympia Phil Heath, who combine elements of both. The debate has only grown with the creation of the classic physique division, which launches this year. How did we get here? Where are we headed? And what exactly is classic?

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.

The 8 Worst Things a Beginner Can Do in the Gym

While bodybuilding is not as complex as rocket science or brain surgery, the process of building muscle, gaining strength and losing fat still takes a tremendous amount of knowledge, as well as hard work. It is vital that beginners have the right information from the start so that their journey with exercise provides maximum results, without injury, distress or too much time wasted. Although your program will evolve as time passes, much of what you learn, and put to use from the start, will create a solid foundation that will serve you throughout all of your years in the gym.

The Workouts for Big Arms in Four Weeks

Time Under Tension is simply referred to as how long a specific muscle group is under strain during a set. If you do a set of barbell bicep curls for 10 reps it can take roughly 15-20 seconds to complete. By making it more difficult you can increase that time under tension to 35-40 seconds. This forces you biceps to work 15-20 seconds longer allowing the muscle fibers to grow.

But one editorial request for clarity turned into another for additional research, turned into a game with one agenda: no desire to post an article that clearly opposes a vested interest in a popular book.

Dennis Wolf's Guide to Wide Shoulders

First, the bad news. Or the good news, if you happen to be a Wolf born in Kyrgyzstan. The most important component in shoulder width is clavicle length, and there’s nothing you can do to alter this. Sufficient calcium and vitamin D will allow you to fulfill your bone-growth potential, but that potential is determined by your DNA. No amount of milk or shoulder stretching is going to give Phil Heath the clavicles of Dennis Wolf. Focus instead on the next five widening rules.

Unusual Fat Loss Methods, Backed by Science | T Nation

Obviously it's not a "magic pill" for weight loss. You can't treat your body like crap in every other way and expect to get lean by getting high. Plenty of fat people use marijuana. But if you're a lifter who wants to kick back with friends, cannabis is probably the better option for your body comp goals than cocktails, Coors, or even Coca-Cola.

#1 thing people ask me about is this story about these awesome girls. All ages and races – lucky dude to have the greatest fans in the world. #Repost ・・・ Maybe it’s random or maybe it’s holiday fate… either way it makes my heart sing… I decide to take a Sunday drive in my pick up to run errands and go train at my buddy’s gym. As I’m driving down the road I see three young girls holding signs that just say “Beep”, “Happy Holidays” etc. So I drive by and do what anyone would do.. I beep and wave. As I look in my rearview I can see that they’re pointing at my truck (my all black pick up is pretty recognizable in our little country town). I go train and run my errands and over 3 HOURS later I’m driving back down our little backroad and the same three angels are standing by the side of the road – only this time they’re jumping up and down, waving and screaming as I drove by. I thought, “Did those signs say my name?”…”Should I turn around just in case?” I decide to hit the brakes and look in my rearview and in that very moment I see them going BONKERS! I flipped a U-turn and drove back to them.

Perform one set of each, and then rest after C. Repeat for the prescribed number of sets. Note that in Phase II, the ab exercises are A and B (not C), so rest after B.

13 Ways to Improve Your Deadlift, Fast! | T Nation

The deadlift is just as much a pushing exercise as it is a pulling exercise. You need to think about pushing the barbell away from the floor by putting as much force into the ground as possible. A common cue is "try to make a heel print in the floor," and it works like magic. Not, like, you know, Gandalf defeating the Eye of Saruman magic, but more so like, "Holy shit, I just lifted 20 more pounds than usual" magic. This will be a little trickier for those who pull sumo style compared to those who pull conventional, but it's still a good idea for both.

28 Days to Six-Pack Abs Workout Program

First up is the diet. This will become your most important component because it takes the most discipline, and if you’re not getting rid of the fat and water, then your abs are going to seem more like a two-pack. With the diet, don’t drastically cut carbs, instead burn them. Keep carbs constant until your abs are truly ready to be seen, then a quick cut will rip out the final drops of water. This is the biggest mistake I’ve seen, dropping carbs too fast and too much, which reduces energy and forces “skinny fat” syndrome instead of good fat burning. Increase your protein to 50-60 additional grams per day and amino acid intake to 10-20 grams per day of supplementation; do this while increasing your veggie intake, so that you can get your calorie count where it needs to be to shed the excess poundage. To reduce excess water weight, add natural diuretic-based products that have dandelion and green tea extract and uva ursi and cranberry. Also, make sure to hit a fat burner that cooperates with your gut, and keep tabs on your indulgences. When you’re out, resist the urge to consume heavy or sugary drinks and fatty foods.
