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.

10 Best Old School Exercises

"What we would do is superset flat bench dumbbell flyes with decline pushups. We'd put our feet pup on a bench and then there were these low wooden boxes—maybe 4" tall—that we would place our hands on to get that extra stretch at the bottom. This is a killer—really pumps up the pecs. Four sets of 8-12 reps done this way burns your chest out pretty well."

H.U.G.E. Gym Class: Cardio

We have to talk about it. As much as you’d rather discuss bench pressing, biceps or just about anything else, most bodybuilders spend more time on a treadmill or StepMill than a leg press or preacher bench. And when dieting down, most iron men and women invest more hours burning calories than pumping muscles. Still, the majority of trainers haven’t learned how to maximize their stationary strides. This month, we shed the fat and explain how to get your cardio back on track. Class is in session.

15 Ways to Gain Lean Mass

There are tons of lean mass schemes out there for a reason, no one's body wants to stay lean. In fact, our bodies tend to like being heavier. It's much easier for our bodies to store fat than it is to build muscle. Being massive and lean is a tough task for your body to accomplish. It is going to take time and patience. These 15 tips will help keep the extra pounds off and help you add slabs of beef to your frame.

H2O for the Bodybuilder

As an athlete or a healthy person—you know soda is not the best choice for a beverage, but drinking plain water sometimes seems more like a chore rather than the right thing to do for your body. More and more people today are “hooked” on diet sodas and carbonated beverages than ever before. Bodybuilders on a contest diet like to drink it, as the carbonation keeps them full and they like the taste better than plain water. It also feels like a treat to have a diet soda in a world of plain, unseasoned contest foods. But not only can diet sodas hinder weight loss and upset your digestive process, they can also prevent your body from ridding itself of excess water. The hardest part of getting on the “drink water” bandwagon is getting of the soda roller coaster. Rather than going cold turkey and moving straight to plain water, I have a plan that I use with many athletes and clients that either have difculty getting enough fluids in or for those trying to kick the habit of carbonated drinks and sodas. If you are used to drinking diet soda and carbonated beverages, the easiest way I’ve found to kick the habit is to wean down.

10 Moves to Target Your Lower Abs

When it comes to revealing what lies beneath any lingering belly fat in your lower ab region, Crockford reminds us that they key isn’t just the following killer exercises. “Making the abs ‘pop’ requires a well-rounded fitness program that incorporates proper nutrition, cardio, and an effective resistance training program which will provide an overall result of creating fat loss and improving aesthetics,” she says.

5 Cardio Workouts You Should Be Doing

Want to boost your metabolism and burn fat faster? Amp up your intensity to increase your EPOC, or excess postexercise oxygen consumption. EPOC represents the energy required to recover from exercise, says Chris Scott, PhD, exercise physiologist at the University of Southern Maine Human Performance Laboratory (Portland). “When exercise ends, it takes time and energy for muscle cells to return to resting levels. Recovery can also be expensive: Depleted glucose and fat stores need to be refilled, accumu­lated cell products need to be removed and protein levels need to be built back up. All this requires energy.” And the more rebuilding to be done, the greater the rate of EPOC, which in turn means more calories (using fatty tissue as fuel) are being burned after your workout.

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.

6 Sex-Boosting Foods

Plant foods are packed with nutrients and low in fat," says Leslie Bonci, M.P.H., R.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "As a result, they help keep the arteries unclogged and help prevent both heart disease and erectile dysfunction."

The German Body Comp (GBC) program is based upon pioneering research by Hala Rambie, a Romanian exercise scientist who defected to West Germany. Rambie found that the lactic acid pathway was superior for fat loss than the aerobic pathway. Rambie determined that high blood lactic levels decreased blood pH levels, which in turn sends a message to the brain to increase its production of growth hormone. Higher growth hormone levels accelerate fat loss.

The Best Bodyweight Exercises for Biceps

Let's be real for a second: Every guy wants good biceps. They're one of the most notorious "mirror muscles" that pretty much everyone loves to sculpt—and show off. Your biceps are actually composed of two muscle groups: The brachii and the brachialis. The former is what connects your shoulder to your forearm, helping you do things like bend your elbow and twist your arm. The latter is more of an assistant, helping the brachii to do its job. Long story short, you need to attack both groups to get those guns you want to show off at the beach all summer.

World's Finest Trailer

World's Finest is a fan film directed by Sandy Collora. It works as a trailer to a movie that doesn't exist: the long-awaited cinematic team-up of Superman and Batman. While Superman and Batman have appeared together often in comic books and in animation (notably Super Friends), this fan film is the only time that the characters have been on the screen at the same time in live action. The title refers to a famous comic that used to be published, featuring Batman and Superman working together in every issue. Colorra never intended to produce the entire film on his own; this film was intended as an audition reel, showing his directorial talents. Despite the popularity of and acclaim for this project, an official Batman/Superman movie has yet to be made. more info at: © Sandy Collora & Collora Studios

Joe DeFranco's Industrial Strength Show by on iTunes

I have been waiting for Joe D to put out a podcast for the longest time! And once again Joe has over delivered to his audience. The first show was jam-packed with so much info I can't imagine how good the rest of the shows will be. DeFranco is the most well rounded coach in the world so I expect lots of great training information for a wide range of athletes and washed up meatheads (Joe's term for former athletes) alike. He also has a knack for making things very simple and practical. Whether you're training for the NFL Combine, looking to improve your running form, or trying to get abs for the summer, this should be your #1 podcast. I could listen to this guy speak all day. Kudos coach D. Jon (DeFranco follower since 2006)

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 .

We'll also make sure to put some serious focus on the abs. We've created TWO options of abs workouts that you'll add to three of the five workouts.

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.
