Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, May 13, 2016

Friday, May 13, 2016 - You are graced with a natural ability to shine your love light into the darkness, creating a more meaningful experience without appearing overly serious. Still, there are weighty matters on your mind and you should take them to heart today. Luckily, your thoughtful actions now will begin to resolve the emotional tensions that have plagued the past few weeks. Adopting an I-can-do-it attitude is the first step toward lightening your load.

6 Bench Press Variations for More Mass

Tips: Make sure you use a spotter to lift the bar off and keep your thumbs around the bar because this is a much more risky lift than a traditional bench press. Push the bar back in arc to emphasize the upper chest.

6 Things You Should Never Do Before a Workout

There have been hundreds of articles written about how to best prepare for a killer workout, discussing everything from what to eat, which supplements to take, and how to get your mind “right.” However, with this piece I decided to take a different approach and talk about some of the things you should AVOID doing before pushing and pulling the heavy iron. Ready? Here we go.

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.

The Rock Clock™ on the App Store

The sweet tunes of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was the motivation I was missing as I began my daily routines. I can honestly say these past few days I've woken up with more energy, determination and grit. I couldn't be more delighted The Rock found a way into all our bedrooms but I can't help but think he could have found a more energy efficient way. The need to leave this sweet app open overnight is a real bummer. I know The Rock always thinks ahead and would never go to sleep without plugging his phone in but The Rock is also pragmatic. He would recognize that at times it is just impractical to plug the phone in. Like when I'm camping and I want to get juiced up for that big hike. I have no doubt The Rock has some of our nation's top minds working on this. They should set the fix as a project and wake up on The Rock's time, they'd have it fixed (crushed) in a week.

4 Quick Tips To Naturally Boost Your Testosterone Levels

You may have heard so much about the importance of performing compound exercises for boosting testosterone levels naturally.   Following workout plans designed around the fundamental compound exercises such as the bench press, the squat and the deadlift is the ultimate way to accomplish this. Studies have shown that the more muscles under tension simultaneously, the more testosterone is released by the body. Although not as much as the compound movements, any type of resistance training has shown to help increase levels of natural testosterone in the body.

The 6 Worst Things You Can Do For Bigger Biceps

Tip: Do the 4 Best Biceps Exercises | T Nation

You'll notice that in all of these exercises (except the hammer variations) the wrist is either extended or neutral, to focus more of the stress on the biceps. That's not to say that there aren't any other great biceps exercises, but from experience, these are the best ones out there.

11 Reasons You’re Not Losing Fat

When your fat loss stalls, it feels like everything goes to hell. “Why isn’t this working?” you’ll ask. “What else can I do to lose weight?” Over time, you’ll get frustrated and discouraged because you’ll feel like you’re still training hard and eating right, but getting zero results.

5 Sex Positions Women Secretly Crave

“It's hard to speak so broadly, as there are 2.5 billion adult women in the world, and undoubtedly innumerable different sex position preferences among them,” Jill McDevitt, Ph.D. , sexologist and author of Sex Positions for Every Body , says. “But for the women I encounter in my work, which are mostly American women between the ages of 18 and 45, often a highly craved sex position is the one where she lays on her back with her legs spread and knees bent, with her partner lying on their stomach and their mouth on their vulva—also known as cunnilingus/oral sex.”

10 Tricks for Bigger, Healthier Shoulders

To test if your shoulders are balanced, try performing a wall slide. Stand with your back against the wall, bring your arms to shoulder-height against the wall, and bend your elbows about 90 degrees so your hands are pointing upward. Now simply move your arms up and down along your body, in parallel with the wall, while keeping your back against the wall. You should feel your shoulder blades moving downward. If your arms keep moving forward, you're probably too stiff, or your shoulders are simply overdeveloped in the front.

The Top 15 Pushup Variations

Start from the pushup position. Take one hand off the ground and raise it straight up in the air (making a T-shape out of your body). Keep your eyes locked on your raised hand. Repeat for your other side. Add dumbbells to the routine to increase the intensity of the workout. "T-pushups hammer your entire upper body," says Yeung. "Not only are you targeting your chest, but you're also strengthening your shoulders, opening up your thoracic spine [midback], and building rotational power through your core."

The Workout to Make Your Forearms Pop

10 Exercises That Work Your Arms to Exhaustion >>> But if you really want to increase forearm vascularity and size, Valentin put together a strategic routine which will hit every angle of the muscles within the forearm. "You'll trigger the main muscles of the posterior side (the back of your hand or on top of your arm): the flexor digitorum superficialis (which is attached to all fingers except the thumb), and the branchioradialis (which comes down into the thumb). Then again on the anterior side (palm side of your hand or bottom of your arm): the flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor carpi radialis (which attaches to all of the muscles in your hand), and the palmaris longus (which attaches to all of the tendons in your hand)," says Valentin. So add the following workout to your arsenal twice a week on non-consecutive days or to the end of your upper body or full body routine to watch your muscles below the elbow finally grow.

6 Ways To Reduce Body Fat While Increasing Muscle

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they're trying to burn body fat is performing lengthy sessions of steady-state cardio. This works for burning calories, but it can also spin you into a caloric deficit where your body begins to preferentially burn muscle tissue over body fat. Instead, use high-intensity interval training (HIIT) as your primary form of cardio. Why? HIIT has been shown to preserve muscle mass, and even enhance fat use as fuel. 4,5 That's a winning combination!

20 Reasons You Should Take a Nap

The NSF recommends 20-30 minute naps for short-term alertness and improved performance. Just be sure you don't take one too early or late in the day; your body may not be ready for sleep yet early in the morning, and taking one late in the evening can throw off your natural sleep patterns, disrupting restorative sleep through the night. Remember, naps aren't reserved for children, the elederly, or the lazy. In fact, a power nap can be just the antidote for laziness.

It's actually quite simple with a little bit of willpower and the right direction.

Everything You Need to Know About IIFYM

It’s late in the afternoon and time for your fourth meal of the day: Six ounces of  grilled chicken , one cup of rice, and a mix of green veggies. Sound familiar? And monotonous? Even the most dedicated bodybuilder or physique competitor dreads the same old routine. Hence, flexible dieting, or "If It Fits Your Macros" (IIFYM), has taken root in fitness culture and gone mainstream. IIFYM is a based on the principle of “calories in, calories out”, which means you won’t gain weight, regardless of food choice, so long as you don’t exceed your total caloric needs for the day. For the fitness enthusiast, IIFYM takes this concept a step further by taking macronutrient requirements for building muscle and fat burning into account.
