Sagittarius Horoscope for Saturday, March 31, 2018

Saturday, March 31, 2018 - You’re fearless when it comes to expressing your heart today because you know it’s the only way to establish a deep connection. You’re prepared to put your feelings on the line while the objective Libra Full Moon highlights your 11th House of Community. Cultivating meaningful relationships is an admirable goal, but you must honor other people’s boundaries before they respond in kind. The Dalai Lama said, “Mutual respect is the foundation of genuine harmony.”

Should You Go Keto? | T Nation

I'll play devil's advocate and mention that on a keto diet you'll eventually increase intramuscular fatty acid storage, which can have a positive impact on fullness, but can't completely compensate for the glycogen depletion. In Quebec, low-carb dieting among coaches is still popular (probably one of the last places on earth where some bodybuilders use low-carb diets). We see a common denominator – physiques that look hard, but are super flat.

Tip: The Safest Chest Press | T Nation

This lift is easy on your joints, kind to your shoulders, and polite to your achy elbows. And it'll still get you super strong.


MSM has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been shown to improve joint health. In this study, a daily dose of MSM reduced the amount of muscle damage that occurred in an   intensive   cardio session. The group who took pre-workout MSM had less protein   carbonyl   in their blood—a sign of protein oxidation—than the group who drank only water before the workout. Each subject was given 100 milligrams per kilogram of   bodyweight. This is a pretty big   dose considering   most studies show that 3,000 milligrams of MSM   imparts   its other benefits.

The public has gone coconut crazy lately. Coconut water, coconut flour, and coconut sugar are everywhere. Coconut oil, it turns out, might be the one product that is more than a fad. With a light flavor and a higher smoke point than olive oil, coconut oil is tasty, versatile, and contributes some brain benefits as well.

Tip: The Best Under-The-Radar Supplement - Biotest

This is why Superfood is the best "under-the-radar" supplement there is. People use it for its antioxidant potential, which is considerable (one serving has roughly the antioxidant potential of 10 to 12 average servings of fruits or vegetables), but its real power lies in its polyphenol content.

Tip: Shoulder Triples for Strength and Size | T Nation

Three things that most people agree on: They want to get stronger. They want to build muscle. They don't want to get injured. Ideally, they want to accomplish all three in the most time-efficient way possible. Many people complain about not having enough time to go to the gym, but when they actually do go they spend 30 minutes standing around doing absolutely nothing. Take those 30 minutes of chatting, standing, and "resting" and do something useful. Supersets are nothing new, but if you apply the principles of strength, muscle endurance/growth, and mobility together you can create damn good workouts that are extremely productive. In a "triple set" you combine a heavy weight for low reps, a moderate weight for medium reps, and then a banded, full range of motion exercise for high reps to hit all three areas of strength, endurance, and mobility. Here's an effective shoulder triple set: 5 close-grip dumbbell presses (heavy) 10 wide-grip dumbbell presses (moderate) 20 banded dislocates For the close-grip dumbbell press, use a weight you can do for around 8 reps with good form.

4 Exercises for Real Posture Improvement | T Nation

Using your body plus gravity and a foam roller is a great way to make the spine feel extension without a real muscular force-feed. Being able to have the back and shoulders fold around the roller can help the body and spine connect the brain to the feeling of extension without too much muscular "fighting for position." It's actually more of a relaxing stretch. Using different arm positions can be a game changer to help understand how this translates to overhead exercises.

Braveheart: William Wallace Freedom Speech [Full HD]

Wallace: Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace. Young soldier: William Wallace is 7 feet tall. Wallace: Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds, and if he were here he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse. I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What would you do without freedom? Will you fight? Veteran soldier: Fight? Against that? No, we will run; and we will live. Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live -- at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!!! Wallace and Soldiers: Alba gu bra! (Scotland forever!) -- Braveheart (1995), Directed by Mel Gibson. Written by Randall Wallace.

How Soon After Sex Can You Orgasm Again?

With some confidence, Rowland says refractory periods usually last a minimum of 30 to 40 minutes for most men, but the upper end of the spectrum is open. "There's nothing considered normal because there aren't really data on this," he says. Part of the issue here is that this is difficult to test. It would require a man to have an orgasm and then attempt to do it again as soon as possible. Even if someone did take on this challenge, he would still only gain part of the picture. This is because refractory periods are highly variable and dependent on the situation, says Rowland.

Tip: The Leg Day Warm Up You Need | T Nation

7 Abused and Misused Training Methods | T Nation

Now, some may claim that they're not using stability ball exercises to increase strength, but instead to improve balance. The problem is, using a stability ball is a learned skill that's no different than learning the skill of riding a bike. You get good at riding a bike through practice, just as you get good at standing on a ball through practice. No one expects having the ability to balance on a bike will offer much transfer into improved (functional) performance in non-bike-riding activities. So it doesn't make sense to think using a stability ball will be any different. It doesn't come close to replicating the force production and neuromuscular coordination patterns of running, jumping, punching, throwing, etc.

3 Workout Finishers to Build a Powerful Upper Body

Of course, Wilcock adds that plyometrics are a fairly advanced form of training, so it’s important to have a solid baseline of strength before incorporating them into your workout. He also says that because plyos are so tiring — eliciting a response more like what you’d feel after running a sprint than a typical resistance-training exercise — you should choose just a couple moves and add them to the end of your workout so the exhaustion you feel won’t affect the rest of your session. The following exercises are good options to try if you’re just starting out.
