Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, April 29, 2016

Friday, April 29, 2016 - You're weary of doing everything the same old way today and yearn for the excitement of change. It's great to be innovative as long as your restlessness doesn't prompt you to add chaos to your life just because you are currently bored. Proceed with caution or you could manufacture a whole new set of problems before you know it. Although it might be contrary to your natural flair for the dramatic, making small adjustments to your normal routine is smarter than shaking up everything all at once.

Q&A with Bodybuilding Legend, Frank Zane

Steve Reeves. Dave Draper. Arnold Schwarzenegger. These names and more are synonymous with an era in bodybuilding, “the Golden Age,” which is revered even today by bodybuilding fans. Hallmarks of this period, which roughly spanned the ’50s through the ’80s, included broad shoulders, trim waists, sweeping thighs, and an overall body shape that could be described as “heroic.” Yet of all the champions who competed during the era, one man’s name is invoked more frequently than others when talk turns to the ideal physique: Frank Zane. Known as “Mr. Symmetry,” Zane captured three Mr. Olympia titles, a Mr. America, Mr. World, and three Mr. Universes. Competing at only 190 pounds, Zane was one of the lightest bodybuilders to ever win the overall title at the Olympia, and he’s also one of only three people to beat Arnold in a bodybuilding contest (the 1968 Mr. Universe). Zane was much more than a bodybuilder, though. He taught chemistry and math for 13 years; in fact, he was teaching full-time when he won his first Olympia.

Keep Building Muscle as You Get Older

better lean muscle shape, and improving muscle density and quality.  If you have the self-control to do this, it pays of in a big way. I personally have found that the years from my 35th until now have been my most productive years by far. So while I haven’t been putting on massive amounts of muscle due to age as well as to engaging in other types of training (like MMA), I have in my bodybuilding training been more attendant to the quality and refinement of my physique. My training routines, as a result, have become much shorter and more efficient. I’ve been less focused on the poundage moved and more on the “feeling” of the muscle contracting.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Pectoral Perfection

Two other examples of incorrect technique are using too much weight and lowering the dumbbells too far to the sides.  The idea of using too much weight doesn’t need much explanation.  Flyes aren’t a power exercise, and if you can’t perform reps without excessively bending your elbows, you’re working too heavy. In this case, decrease the weight. If you’re struggling with 40-pound dumbbells, try 30s or 25s. Using too great a range of motion is the second recipe for disaster. Once you’ve lowered the weights to the point at which your hands are even with your shoulders or you can feel a moderate, not painful, stretch in the pecs, that’s far enough. Lowering too far puts way too much stress on the pectoral muscles, shoulders and biceps, not to mention the vulnerable shoulder joint itself. To avoid this, always lower the dumbbells slowly so that momentum doesn’t carry you past the desired range of motion. Again, as soon as you feel the onset of a stretch in your pecs, switch directions smoothly.  Remember, nothing sets your development back further faster than serious injury.

Blow Up Your Bench for a Massive Chest

Almost anyone who has stepped foot inside a gym has made the bench priority one at some point. After all, a big bench equals a big chest. And who doesn’t want a massive chest that’s the envy of all? So why has an exercise that was once an, ahem , benchmark for strength and size been kicked to the curb like yesterday’s outdated software? Most people will tell you that they steer clear of it for fear of a torn pec or rotator cuff injury. That’s too bad, because the bench press is still the big daddy of upper-body exercises — as long as it’s done the right way. That’s where we come in. On the following pages, you’ll find a step-by-step guide to performing this exercise for both monster chest growth and a jaw-dropping retort to the inevitable — and annoying — question, how much do you bench?

9 Tough Questions to Ask a Trainer Before You Sign Up

The problem is, with social media nowadays, there seems to be an endless supply of coaches and personal trainers out there. How do you weed out the fakes from the real deal guys? These 9 questions should help you to uncover if this person is a good match for you.

Pullups vs. Pulldowns For a Wide Back

For “functional” strength purposes, wide-grip pullups are more effective as they employ biceps and lower back to a greater degree. However, pulldowns are superior for isolating the lats with minimal biceps and lower-back involvement. Thus, to get the benefits of both, start with pullups first, then move over to pulldowns. – FLEX

The Biggest Hurdles to Working Out at Home—and How to Beat Them

How many times have you thought about working out and, instead of blasting through a quick routine, skipped it because you only had 30 minutes to spare? Far too often, right? Most of us are under the impression we need to exercise for at least 60-90 minutes in order to get a good workout in. "The truth is, people get really good results—especially men—with things like calisthenics and HIIT," Morelli says. More often than not, giving maximum effort for 15-30 minutes is more beneficial than moderate-intensity work for twice as long. You'll build a leaner, stronger physique, and your routines will always feel fresh.

5 Form Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making | T Nation

Screwing the elbows forward is another critical mistake when doing pull-ups and pulldowns. Regardless of the grip (pronated, supinated, or neutral) or hand placement (wide, medium, or close), the elbows need to point straight ahead throughout, rather than out to the sides. This helps to engage the entire musculature of the lats rather than just the upper portion. It also ensures you're not pulling from the upper traps and shoulders.

6 Techniques to Build Your Dream Physique Fast

The biggest difference between how my amateur and pro clients use these multipliers is how many they employ in one workout. An amateur might use one of these techniques in a workout, but pros use several techniques in a workout, such as partials, negative reps, and flexing. For the average bodybuilder, I recommend using one multiplier per workout. Over the course of time, incorporate all six of these intensity multipliers in your training to make gains like a pro.

"He fought his way back," said Mr. Phelps. "That's what fans are connecting to. He gives them strength, and his emotional generosity is never about him, it's about the fans."

5 Things You're Deficient In | T Nation

The trouble is, iodine isn't as common as other minerals. The farther you get away from the sea (the source of most earthly iodine) and the foods contained therein, the more likely you're deficient. This is why the Morton Salt Company started adding iodine to its salt in 1924. Thyroid problems disappeared almost overnight. However, despite its dietary importance, iodine intake has decreased by about 50% from 1971 to 2001, the latest dates for which I could find statistics.

Bring Up Your Arm Size

Because the triceps make up such a large proportion (approximately 60%) of the muscle mass on the upper arm, when it comes to bringing up overall arm size, focusing on the tri’s is a smart plan. Of the three triceps heads — long, lateral and medial — the long head makes up the majority of the mass and adds the most size to the upper arm when viewed from side. One of the best ways to hit the long head is with barbell incline triceps extensions. To perform this exercise, sit back on an incline bench set to a 45-degree angle or higher. Hold a barbell overhead so that your arms are perpendicular to the floor. Keeping your upper arms still, bring the barbell down to the back of the top of your head by bending your arms only at the elbow joints. Return the bar to the start position by extending your arms at the elbows.

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.

5 Everyday Behaviors Keeping You From Losing Fat

When it comes to weight loss, nothing is quite as difficult as dropping the last 10 pounds.

Essentially, your body becomes accustomed to your diet and your workout and let's face it: It's much harder to lose 10 pounds when you weigh 190 than it is to lose 10 pounds from a 300-pound frame.

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.

Perfect Peaks in 3 Bicep-Blasting Moves

Full range of motion for full development is a good guideline but like most rules, there are some exceptions. In this case, the partials are used to overload specific ranges of motions for strength building, allowing the biceps to handle very heavy weight at peak contraction. Keep in mind you need to start from a full hang and end in the starting position. Barring injury, keep the supinated (underhand) grip for the greatest bicep overload.

15 Things You Can Do During the Day to Help You Fall Asleep Faster at Night

Caffeine is arguably the most abused substance on earth, but telling you to stop drinking coffee is a tall order you're not apt to make. For starters, wait 90 minutes from the time you wake up to drink a cup of coffee, Breus says. Your cortisol levels are at their highest in the morning, so if you introduce caffeine right away, your body will stop producing your wake-up-and-tackle-the-day hormone cortisol, which helps jolt your system awake. "I also recommend you stop drinking caffeine at 2 p.m. so you can get to sleep faster at night," Breus says. "Caffeine has a half life of 8-10 hours, so if you stop drinking coffee midday and go to bed at the nation's norm of 10:30 p.m., then you're allowing your body to fall asleep quicker and get in to a deeper sleep." So, yes, that after-dinner cappuccino is affecting you—even if you don't struggle to slip into sleep.
