Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - Share your plans with your closest supporters before it becomes too complicated to say anything at all. You know exactly where you want the conversation to go and might manipulate the circumstances at work to push your agenda forward. It's relatively easy to just convey an abstract idea to a friend. However, conflicting intentions become entangled if you are overly attached to your goal. Remaining open to whatever happens today offers you more options; but don't be so eager to compromise that you sacrifice your self-esteem in the process.

Shredding Strategies

Are there really any secrets left in the world? With the advent of the Internet and the explosion of information across the globe, "secrets" are now few and far between. That's especially true when it comes to dieting tips. That's not to say all the tricks for getting lean are widely known. In a few cases, far from it - there are a handful of techniques bodybuilding pros regularly employ that don't get much play elsewhere. But they work, and here, I'm going to share six of them with you.

10 Little-Known Facts About WWE Superstar John Cena

He uses the catch phrase “You can’t see me” in his pre-match talk, but how many of these Cena facts did YOU see coming?

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.

16 Sex Positions to Try in 2016

Have your New Years resolutions already fallen by the wayside? Try replacing them with some resolutions you'll actually want to keep, like a resolution to get more creative in the bedroom. Sex therapist Vanessa Marin is here to share 16 sex positions you should try in 2016. You'll find detailed descriptions of each position, along with tips for taking the positions to the next level with sex toys, lube, fantasy roleplays, and more. Look through them with your partner and pick one position to try each month. Ranging from easy to acrobatic, romantic to raunchy, you're sure to find a new favorite position. Disclaimer: Always make sure your partner is comfortable and up for trying new things in your sex life, no matter what that may be.

The Best Dumbbell Biceps Workout

HOW IT WORKS The workout starts with strict dumbbell curls. Since you’ll be fresh, youshould have no trouble giving each set your utmost focus, using only the strength in your biceps to complete your reps. The drag curl follows—another movement that relies on precise form and prevents your shoulders  or back from assisting. Later, you can loosen up, doing curls again but this time with intentional cheating. At this point, you’ll be tired and unable to execute reps with perfect technique anyway, so you’ll get a little help from your hips to power through your sticking point. Your biceps will still be working hard, and with most of your workout accomplished, all you need do now is top them off with blood to ensure the greatest growth.

8 Things You Should Do Before Every Workout

A solid pre-workout routine begins long before you step into gym shorts or break a sweat. And like everything else, sloppy prep translates to sloppy execution. That can lead to uninspired training sessions or injury, both of which inhibit strength and muscle gains, or weight loss. So to help you craft a sound pre-training regimen, we asked Patrick Solano CSCS, strength and conditioning specialist at the UFC Gym in Torrance, California for his pre-workout necessities.

7 Curls for Bigger Biceps

We asked Antoian to walk us through the benefits of a handful of curls that you may or may not currently use in your repertoire. We also requested that he skip longwinded execution explanations since, in general, curls are performed the same way: Keep your arms at your sides, elbows close to the body, and bend your arm from the elbow as you bring the weight to your shoulder.

8 Weeks to a Turbocharged Metabolism Training Plan

Change Up Your Cardio. You’ll perform two types of cardio workouts in both phases of this program. On Days 1, 3, and 5, you’ll do 45–60 minutes of steady-state cardio on a StepMill at 75% of your maximum heart rate (MHR). (If you don’t have access to a StepMill, use a treadmill set to an incline of at least 5%.) On Days 4 and 6 in Phase 1 of the program, you’ll perform 30 minutes of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) with your choice of cardio. (See “HIIT Plan,” right.) Integrating both types of workouts will allow you to work different energy systems to maximize fat burning.

The Science Of Sugar And Fat Loss

Further, in the last few years, popular documentaries claim that sugar is toxic and can contribute to health ailments. This one bugs me, because anything can be a toxin—it's the dosage that makes it poison. It would take a dose of 450 grams of sucrose to kill the average person. By comparison, a lethal dose of vitamin C is around one-third that dose, and a lethal dose of alcohol about one-fourth. So could sugar be toxic? In theory, yes—but you'd have to try pretty hard.

The Hardest Relationship You'll Ever Have to Break Off

4. Other Social Media: The heart wants what the heart wants. If Facebook is your one and only social media platform of choice, then it’s going to be difficult to refrain, but if you’re active on Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, then it’s easier to stay on track because you’re occupying your time elsewhere. What’s more, when participants were asked to reflect on the “appropriate” role for technology in their social lives, they reverted back to Facebook, however, they altered their use. Some deleted the app from their smartphones, others reduced their number of friends, and other people limited the amount of time spent on the feed.

5 Training Lessons to Break Your Rut

Trainers get too caught up in the actual movement and the perfect technique. What this does is take out the actual brain and muscle connection. There is a big difference between lifting the weight up from start to finish and letting your muscle actually drive the weight up by using the optimal bio-mechanical line and contracting it intentionally at the same time, thus, utilizing the mind-muscle connection .

4 Things to Do AFTER Lifting to Boost Gains | T Nation

When it comes to speeding up recovery from a ball-busting workout, no single time period may be as important as the post-workout window. After the last rep, your main focus should shift to recovery so that you can train heavier, more often, and with greater intensity. Nutrition obviously plays a crucial role, but there's more you can do. Tapping into your parasympathetic nervous system response with specific strategies can also expedite recovery.

Back on Track

FLEX editors undertook a rather daunting task, journalistically speaking —they gathered to choose the 20 bodybuilders who, in their estimation, represented the best back development of all time. The list was stacked with greats, from Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates at the top of the heap to Melvin Anthony and Albert Beckles snagging the final two spots. You could argue vociferously for a favorite who didn’t make the list (and have a valid point), but all told, no one could debate the quality of the final 20. They were giants in a sport that boasts more than its fair share of larger-than-life physiques.

4 Best Exercises for Strong, Sexy Calves

Target the soleus muscle best by doing calf raises in a seated position. You don’t necessarily need a machine to do this. If you have access to a gym, perfect! If you don't, here's how to do these at home with equipment. You can use a kettlebell or a dumbbell. Sit on a chair that allows you to keep your thighs parallel to the floor. Place your weight on your knees. (If you bruise easily, you may want to use a folded towel between the weight and your knee.) Holding on to the weight, do 10-12 seated calf raises then switch legs. Repeat 3 times.

How to Cook Steak and Yam Fries—A Friday Night Dinner Idea

- Flip the steaks, add in 2 Tbsp ghee, 2-3 cloves smashed garlic, and 3-4 sprigs fresh thyme to the bottom of the skillet. Using a damp kitchen towel or heat-resistant mitt, gently tip the skillet towards you so that the juices pool at the bottom. (Caution: there will likely be some splatter from the rendered juices.) Using a large spoon, continuously baste each steak for 1:45-2:00min for medium-rare to medium. Cook less for more rare.

Dorian Yates' 6 Rules for Building a Big Back Fast

A great back is a rarity, because it’s the hardest part of the body to reach with a resistance exercise. Simple pulling doesn’t do the job, because the force has to first pass through the arms, shoulders and lower back. What you must do is concentrate the squeeze into that portion of your back for which the exercise is intended. During chinups, feel the burn in your lats, rhomboids and upper back. When performing barbell rows, feel it in your lats and middle back. For deadlifts, feel it in your spinal erectors, lats and traps. Most of all, love that feeling. -  FLEX
