Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Wednesday, March 2, 2016 - An all-too-familiar dilemma may resurface now that the Moon is back in far-seeing Sagittarius. You are ready to choose between boldly charging ahead without a plan and waiting until you're fully prepared for the next step. You truly understand the wisdom of patience, but you still prefer to move quickly today. Your current drive for self-expression is powerful, so be sure to maximize the potential of the moment with a healthy dose of common sense. Ultimately, balance is the key to your success.

The Arnold Press and Shoulder Workout

Of Arnold’s many accomplishments, this one doesn’t rank particularly high. Still, not only did it allow him to name an exercise after himself—the Arnold Press—it’s a uniquely effective move. While Arnold was experimenting with ways to spark new shoulder growth , he rein­vented the overhead press, twisting the palms from facing backward to facing forward. He found that this better targets your front delts than conventional overhead presses. Like its namesake, this exercise travels a unique path. Add it to your shoulder routine.

Bang Out 100 Push-Ups

“Train three days a week. On Day 1, do 3–4 sets of weighted pushups for 12–15 reps. Day 2, bench-press for 3–4 sets of 8–10 reps. Day 3, do regular push-ups for 2–3 sets of 20–25 or more reps. Each week, increase the load on the first two days and increase the reps on the third. You’ll get there in a few weeks to a few months.”

Stop Taking Multivitamins! | T Nation

People who live by the ocean usually aren't deficient in iodine because they presumably get plenty of seafood. Not so for landlubbers in Kansas. Years ago, practically everybody who lived far away from the ocean was deficient in iodine, so the Morton Salt Company started putting iodine in their salt. Iodine deficiency became a thing of the past. However, with more people using exotic sea salts (which often lack sufficient iodine), not eating salt at all because of some doctor's recommendation, or subsisting solely on restaurant food (most of which don't use iodized versions), iodine deficiencies are back. That's too bad, because iodine is crucial to human health. If you have dry skin or have trouble staying lean, you might be deficient. The same might be true if you have mysterious fatigue or suffer from unexplained autoimmune diseases or depression. It also plays a pivotal role in heart disease and various types of cancer. The RDA is a mere 150 mcg. a day, but take up to 6 to 12 milligrams a day if you suspect a deficiency.

6 Signs It’s Time to Switch Your Workout Routine

When you start a new routine, you feel the burn in the first set and by the third, you’re probably struggling to finish. The longer you do the routine, the easier this becomes—until it’s too easy. “During the exercises, you need to feel challenged in order to see results,” Fuentes says. If you’re shooting for 8 to 12 reps per set, but suddenly you can do 15 on the second and third set, it means your muscles have adapted too much and it’s time to increase your weight or change your routine, he explains.

Top 5 Forearm Training Mistakes

The majority of bodybuilders don’t do direct forearm work, whereas many others do four or fewer sets of wrist curls. No segment of the iron game neglects forearms more than the very champions we feature in these pages. And therein lies a problem — you’re not a pro bodybuilder. Phil Heath’s DNA allows him to grow two of the world’s best lower arms by merely gripping bars during upper-body exercises. You’re not so lucky. The assertion that you’ll get enough forearm stimulation by simply training everything else often holds true for Mr. O competitors, but rarely does so for the rest of us.

7 Tips for Burning Fat and Building Muscle

Go outside and take a walk. Do some pushups , do some lunges – just get moving. And if you think you need hours and hours each day, you’re wrong. 10-15 minutes of moving, stretching, doing bodyweight exercises will add up very quickly in a week. Start slow and do 3 times a week and as you progress, do 4 or 5 times a week if you want. Now do this each week over the course of a month, 3 months and a year. Be consistent.

5 Benefits of Sleeping Naked

If you and your lady are trying to have a baby, ditch the boxer briefs and don boxers instead during the day—and go nude when you hit the sack at night. Researchers from the National Institute of Child Health and Development and Stanford University tracked 500 men, each of whom dictated their own sleep habits and choice of underwear, for one year. When researchers analyzed each guy's sperm quality, they discovered men who stuck with the boxer-by-day, commando-by-night routine had a 25 percent lower rate of damaged DNA in their sperm than did men who wore tighter underwear 24/7, according to the study, which was presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in Baltimore.

Good news for fit guys already hitting the gym pretty regularly. But even if that's you, you can decrease your odds of pain even further by focusing on
