Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, May 5, 2016

Thursday, May 5, 2016 - It appears as if you're quickly running out of time, so stop dilly-dallying and start to sort things out with a new plan of action. But don't fret if there are still miscellaneous details to uncover. Unfortunately, you might lose your chance by waiting until you have all your ducks in a row. You can fill in more missing pieces over the weeks ahead. Take full advantage of the enterprising Aries Moon before it settles into placid Taurus this afternoon. Welcome the opportunities with open arms while you can.

The Rock Clock™ on the App Store

I love the concept and I think this app will go far. Only complain that I have is that you must keep the app open for the alarm to actually go off and wake you up. That actually would drain my battery. I love all the ringtones and the fact that you can choose to wake up at the same time as The Rock. I'll probably use it for the most part but I don't see me using it long term for the fact you have to keep the app open. Also I wish there was something you could track your goals or progress. That would be pretty neat.

8 Mistakes Men Make With Diets | T Nation

Many men get tripped up by mistake number two because they're copying the diet of their favorite bodybuilder or hypertrophied action movie star. The problem? Well, most men don't have the genetics of a pro, they don't do the marathon workouts of a pro, and they're not using the drugs the pros are using. Heck, even guys on steroids probably aren't using a tenth of what the pros use. All of those things add leeway to the diet. The pros can get away with crazy diets (at least for a few years) because of the drugs.

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.

Strongman To Powerlifting: Carlos Reyes -

Carlos Reyes began competing in strongman in June 2009. His achievements include winning the North American Strongman Teen National Championship (200-pound class) in 2010 and 2011, the Men's National Championship (200-pound class) in 2011, and attaining his lightweight pro card (231-pound class) at the Hartford Europa Platinum + contest in 2012. After recovering from an injury, he decided to enter his first raw powerlifting meet in 2013 and fell in love with the sport. Since then, he has achieved an 805-pound squat, a 515-pound bench press, a 725-pound deadlift, and 2045 total in the 220-pound class (raw w/ wraps). Carlos currently resides in Bridgeport, CT with his 3 year old pug, Riley. He is pursuing a career as a firefighter/paramedic.

7 Tips for Burning Fat and Building Muscle

Go outside and take a walk. Do some pushups , do some lunges – just get moving. And if you think you need hours and hours each day, you’re wrong. 10-15 minutes of moving, stretching, doing bodyweight exercises will add up very quickly in a week. Start slow and do 3 times a week and as you progress, do 4 or 5 times a week if you want. Now do this each week over the course of a month, 3 months and a year. Be consistent.

Giving You Strength Training "Advices" From 27 Years Training Experience • Zach Even-Esh

Not much on the physical end has changed, I still strive to do between 300-500 strength exercise reps a day to include; bodyweight, bands, odd objects, barbell/dumbbell & “kettleballz” . I go back and forth with adding cardio 2-3 days a week every other week like sprints or jumping rope to give my PC joints a break! The mental training NEVER ends! Thanks for all you do for us “fitness” misfits!


Finally, if you prefer to simply warm-up with low-load lifts when training, be sure you don’t wear yourself out before getting to the “work sets.” For example, if you are warming up for a heavy bench press, you might do so as follows: 135 lbs x 5, 205 x 2, 225 x 1, 255 x 1, 275 x 1, 300 x 1 (or even 300 x 1 and then 315 x 1, so the following working sets feel lighter), and then 300 x 5 reps for x 5 work sets.

The Rock Clock™ - Android Apps on Google Play

For some reason my Rock Clock alarm didn't go off with the Good Morning Sunshine tone, it was just some very quiet beeps (not the beeps where Dwayne actually says "beep"). It was just a few tonal beeps. Not sure why that was. When I went into the alarm it had the correct Good Morning Sunshine tone listed as the tone for that alarm...must be a bug. Suggestions I have for future updates: Ability to have a repeat alarm option so it will always repeat at the same time everyday, currently I have to turn the alarm back to "on" everyday. Other than that I love the app! Full Review

Build Arms Like Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s guns are arguably the most famous in human history, and rightly so. Stretching the tape to a full 22 inches, they weren’t just the biggest of his day (the late-’60s to the mid-’70s) but also the most ideally shaped. Arnold kept things basic and brutal, yet made sure to cover his bases by including exercises that he considered mass builders, and others that isolate the biceps .

28 Days to Six-Pack Abs Workout Program

First up is the diet. This will become your most important component because it takes the most discipline, and if you’re not getting rid of the fat and water, then your abs are going to seem more like a two-pack. With the diet, don’t drastically cut carbs, instead burn them. Keep carbs constant until your abs are truly ready to be seen, then a quick cut will rip out the final drops of water. This is the biggest mistake I’ve seen, dropping carbs too fast and too much, which reduces energy and forces “skinny fat” syndrome instead of good fat burning. Increase your protein to 50-60 additional grams per day and amino acid intake to 10-20 grams per day of supplementation; do this while increasing your veggie intake, so that you can get your calorie count where it needs to be to shed the excess poundage. To reduce excess water weight, add natural diuretic-based products that have dandelion and green tea extract and uva ursi and cranberry. Also, make sure to hit a fat burner that cooperates with your gut, and keep tabs on your indulgences. When you’re out, resist the urge to consume heavy or sugary drinks and fatty foods.

Chris Hemsworth's God-Like Thor Workout

Hemsworth in particular was a model of consistency, and the physique he built has made “Chris Hemsworth Workout” the top search suggestion when you punch the actor’s name into Google. The Internet, though, is a minefield of shameless, click-baiting “Thor Workout” imitators. Fortunately, you don’t need to look any further than the full, unabridged template we present here, with exercises demonstrated by IFBB physique pro Sadik Hadzovic. So get ready to hit the gym, and remember: There are no shortcuts.

The Best Body Recomposition Workout

Hala Rambie, a scientist who defected to West Germany during the Cold War, found that fat loss could be accelerated by raising levels of blood lactate—an energy substrate. More lactate corresponds to greater release of growth hormone, which tells your body to grow muscle and burn flab. The best way to raise lactate quickly is to pair upper- and lower-body exercises, or opposing movements, for reps in the 8–15 range. The sweet spot for sets is three, and rest periods are 30–60 seconds. This approach has since become known as German Body Comp. The workouts that follow are just two of the routines that appear in The 101 Best Workouts of All Time, the new book by M&F ’s training director, Sean Hyson, which offers routines for every piece of equipment and any amount of training time. Pick it up at .

6 Things Experienced Lifters Do Every Day

After you have been in the iron game for a while you start to develop more daily habits and goals as apposed to focusing on just one long-term goal. Experienced weightlifters still will have long-term goals but they are also seasoned enough to know that creating habits that they do everyday will create long-term success. You can’t build muscle, get lean or increase strength just by setting a goal. You need to think about what you do each day if you want to have longevity as a lifter and keep making progress.

Big Ramy's Planet-Size Pipes

“We get the heavy lifting from pressing and pulling during chest and back workouts, “Alaqi tells the curious journalist. “So for arms, we don’t need to go as heavy and risk injury. We try to fill the arms with as much blood as we can.” That’s why you alternate biceps and triceps exercises. “I think this is better [than working biceps and triceps separately] because you fill the whole arm with blood,” Alaqi states. You tighten up your wrist straps, as a precautionary measure to fend off tendon strains. It’s time for work.

Top 10 Squat Mistakes

But with any complex exercise, there’s a lot of room for error and the squat is no exception. Here are the top 10 mistakes people make with squatting, why they’re bad and exactly what you need to do to avoid them.

The Big 25

Add the farmer’s walk to your cardio regimen. Hold moderate to heavy dumbbells at your sides with your abs pulled and take long strides, walking until you can no longer grip the dumbbells. Rest 90 seconds each time you fail and then go again, striding for 10-20 minutes total. This gives you the calorie burning of cardio while increasing your grip and core strength.

The Ultimate Protein-Food Meal Plan for Bodybuilders

With all that said, it’s time to start considering other protein options… ones that aren’t as mainstream. Enter: protein bread, protein chips, protein ice cream, and more. As for the protein chips and ice cream, they won’t destroy your fat or carb macros, containing little as 2 grams of fat and 5 grams of carbs. For once you’ll enjoy eating several times a day. Click on through to find out more about these protein alternatives and how to incorporate them into your daily eats, sample meal plan provided.

The 5 Most Effective Methods for Building Bigger Triceps

Too often, we see guys in the gym—and maybe you're one of them—working their triceps to death at the cable pressdown station. Ten sets, 15 sets... whatever it takes to get them sore. But the pressdown-happy masses don't seem to realize that pressdowns only emphasize the lateral (outer) head of the triceps. So if that's all you do, you'll fail to develop the other two heads of your triceps muscles, and you'll never get the kind of growth you're hoping for.

8 Best Anabolic Exercises

Gaining size isn’t as easy as it sounds. Your body is built to survive, not to look like an Olympia competitor, so putting on – and holding on – to muscle mass is a complicated, multilayered affair that can vary from person to person. But one thing everyone can do to maximize your ability to add new muscle is to select the right exercises – the type that will break down muscle tissue and trigger the hormonal responses that send your body into anabolic overdrive.

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.

Smash Your Tri’s with this Hard and Heavy Routine

I like to use a combination of unique moves, heavy weight, and high volume when I train triceps, and the routine below is one of my all-time favorites. Don’t think it looks like much? Ask editor-in-chief Shawn Perine what he thinks—we recently hit a version of this workout together, and his triceps were smoked. Give it a go. Your lockout strength will limit you no more.

6 Weighted Ab Exercises for a Shredded Six-Pack

But first, a note of trainer wisdom: Doing endless amounts of abdominal exercises will have literally no affect on your progress to burn fat and trim your waistline. Spot-reducing fat has been proven to be a myth. Just because you work a body part hard in the gym with endless amounts of reps does not mean fat will fall off and improve the looks of that body part. It simply just won't happen.

The Legend and the Apprentice

“What’s funny is, the past 10 years of my life, no matter what gym I went to, everyone has been comparing me to this guy Frank Zane,” says Hadzovic. “And I had no idea who he was. I literally thought that he was somebody my age who went to the same gym as me at different hours. Everyone kept telling me, ‘You look like Zane,’ and I’ve never even met this guy. I’m like, ‘What time does he train? Where’s he at?’ It wasn’t until a few years ago when I was on the Internet that I stumbled across some bodybuilding footage and saw Frank Zane. And I was like, ‘Holy crap, this guy is a former Mr. Olympia. That’s a f—ing compliment.’ And here I was thinking this guy was a normal dude.”

The Legendary Triceps of Kevin Levrone

Then there were his stupendous triceps. The upper lateral and long heads were so enormous they gave a rare “hang” to his arms, even in his side chest pose. Yet another interesting thing about the two-time Arnold champ was how remarkably strong he was. There’s a video of him benching 495 for a triple less than two weeks before the 1998 Olympia. Levrone believes too many bodybuilders rely on isolation when they should be hoisting heavy metal in the compound basics.
