Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, April 22, 2016

Friday, April 22, 2016 - You may not fully comprehend everything that's happening now, but something wonderful is ready to unfold in your life. However, emotional and spiritual growth is often painful, especially with the unforgiving Scorpio Full Moon overwhelming your 12th House of Destiny. Unconscious motivations push you towards destinations that aren't yet obvious to you. If everything seems to be out of control, make a conscious decision to just roll with the waves of change. As spiritual teacher Vernon Howard wrote, "Resistance to the disturbance is the disturbance."

4 Moves for Ripped Lower Abs

The collection of movements below accomplishes this quite nicely, starting with two movements that target your lower abs, followed by some oblique work, and a core-stabilization finisher. And since it’s impossible to train one portion of the rectus abdominis—your six-pack muscles—apart from another, your upper abs will get plenty of work, too, in this routine.

4 Superfoods that Fight Inflammation

Inflammation can have devastating effects on the body, leading to joint stiffness, joint breakdown, joint swelling and loss of joint mobility. This can cause major problems to any workout regime. With less range of motion in exercising the body will not be able to run optimally and muscle building potential will surely be decreased. The greatest muscle gains come with a complete range of motion for the exercising muscle anything less we are cheating ourselves. Simply being aware of inflammation and its effects on your ability to build muscle or burn fat is a huge advantage. But by adding these four foods to your weekly menu, you’re likely to find that your muscles and joints recover faster and more completely, putting you back in top form, faster.

The Ultimate Bodyweight Workout for Bodybuilders

Don’t believe me? Take a look at gymnasts, these are by far the most jacked, ripped and strongest athletes in the world. And all they do is bodyweight training on rings and bars, not to mention training 6-7 times a week with full body workouts. Quite frankly, if you ask me, someone who bangs out hand push ups is far more badass than a dude who can bench 200 kilos.

Big Ramy Trains Arms

The crucial thing for Ramy when working arms is to lock his elbow(s) in place from the first rep to the last. Cheating would allow him to hoist heavier weights, but it would also rob him of the control he wants to exert on his targeted muscles, and increase the odds of a strain or—worst yet—a tear.

Top 5 Shoulder Training Mistakes

All delt heads do not work equally, and the one that typically carries the heaviest load is the anterior. Your front delts are not only primary movers during overhead presses, they’re also secondary movers during chest and triceps workouts, helping during presses and dips. If you’re doing front  raises in addition to a lot of shoulder, chest and tri compound lifts, you’re likely overworking your front delts. This is especially true if you train chest and shoulders in the same workout or on consecutive days.

5 Fitness Lessons We Learned from Mom

As Mother’s Day approaches, you always think back of cherished memories that you’ve shared together. You might also tell yourself “I wish I would have listened to her whenever I was younger."  Don’t worry because we all have been stubborn when we were young and growing up. You know they say, “Mother’s do know best”. If you were like me, I didn’t always listen to what she had to say.  As you look at yourself in the mirror, do you ever ask yourself why she was telling you to do certain things, or eat certain foods? I eventually found out there was a reason behind her madness, and today I can recall how helpful those tips are.

The Hottest Trend in Training Sneakers: Mid-Tops

This spring, we’ve spotted one design in particular that's really trending: The mid-cut silhouette. The purpose of the slightly higher rise is to create a more snug fit for ankle support when moving in every direction. Now, the mid-cut design isn't "new." But, when it's revived in a new shoe—specifically a training shoe that has the versatility to allow you to run, lift, and do everything in between—we have to have 'em.

For a smooth, creamy texture, toss in a frozen banana, if desired.

The High-Intensity Circuit to Sweat Your Gut Off

Plyometric exercises are so effective because you're repeatedly creating a forceful contraction, which means you're burning major calories, Perry explains. Movements like jumping rope, sprinting, throwing (think baseball and football)—even punching or kicking—are performed rapidly and demand a quick stretching or loading of the muscle followed by a forceful contraction. This is why plyo circuits don't (and shouldn't) take very long. You want to keep the intensity high and the duration somewhere between 10 to 20 minutes. Your most intense workouts should be shortest.

Avoid These Six Mistakes In the Gym

Considering those six rules, here’s an important caveat: just because someone at your gym, or even a pro bodybuilder like me, tells you to do something, that’s no reason to follow his every move. Analyze the advice you receive as you apply it to yourself, and don’t follow a routine or diet endlessly if you’re not seeing tangible results. That’s not to say you should haphazardly switch directions at every sign of a plateau — far from it. But be ready to tweak your approach while evaluating its effects.

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.

Tip: Build Your Shoulders with Pain and Acid | T Nation

The shoulders need plenty of time under tension (TUT) to grow. That means longer sets with lighter weights. The main thing to focus on is stimulating as much lactate build-up in the target muscle as possible. You need to have a high pain tolerance. Lactate accumulation through muscular work is maximized when the muscle is under tension for 45-70 seconds. This complex will take care of that.

Take the Guesswork Out of Training

How many times have you caught yourself asking the question, “Which exercise should I do?” You get cranking on a good program, but still find yourself questioning why certain body parts just aren’t getting any better. You look around the gym and see a lot different exercises being performed and probably say to yourself, “Should I do that?” The better question should really be, “What am I trying to improve?” Exercises are created for a specific purpose, but when it comes to building size and getting razor-sharp cuts, that reason becomes even more important. Choosing the best exercise is difficult, since most exercises have variations and may activate more than one muscle or muscle group, making it difficult to pinpoint the true target. You also have to consider how to get all your body parts worked out inside of a week while ensuring that your overall goal is met.

The 8 Best Things You Can Do For Your Metabolism

Metabolism is a fancy word for how your body regulates energy consumption. Someone with a higher metabolism burns more calories even at rest than someone with a lower metabolism, and can therefore get away with eating more food —even junk food. But a high metabolism isn’t a privilege reserved for a select few who were lucky enough to be born with it. You can raise yours and reap the benefits. Here are the 8 best things you can do.
