Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - Everything would be perfect today, but someone may not be playing according to your rules. It might even feel as if a rain cloud is threatening your parade, even though it's still sunny on your side of the street. There's no reason to let fear dampen your current enthusiasm. You don't have to outrun bad weather; instead, head off the developing storms by proactively confronting any negativity. Unaddressed issues are the only scary ones. Tilt the odds even further in your favor by avoiding the blame game; the final outcome is influenced by your positive attitude more than anything else.

10 Best Moves to Lose Your Love Handles

You’ve tried situps, cardio, and dumbbell side bends, but nothing seems to get rid of that stubborn belly fat on your sides. Commonly called “love handles,” this area of your torso is part of the waist-to-hip ratio, an indicator of overall health. If you have too much cushion around your waist, ask yourself, "How hard am I really working in the gym?" To get the best moves for a slim torso , we asked Sadik Hadzovic, IFBB Men’s Physique professional for his 10 favorite exercises to keep love handles away. "This workout is effective because it's fast paced and designed to target both the rectus abdominals and the transverse abdominals," says Hadzovic. "To burn fat you must do more then just crunches and situps; You need to recruit your entire body to enter a thermogenic state that leads to an accelerated rate of fat loss." Complete your dream physique with these 10 moves that will carve up your core fast.

31 Arnold-Approved Training Tips -

Perusing Arnold's signature tome requires some effort: The hardback version comes in at an even 800 pages, after all! While it's hefty weight might make it a nice addition to your coffee table, the nuggets of training gold take a little work to find. In the interest of mining the best knowledge from one of the strongest minds in bodybuilding, here are 31 Arnold-approved training tips to help you build your best body ever!

In the Crosshairs: Outer Calves

is the smaller and weaker section of the gastroc, the larger and stronger inner gastroc head tends to take over on calf raises when the toes are pointing straight ahead. Your best bet for bringing up the outer head is to start each calf raise exercise (when your calves are not fatigued) with a few sets done with your toes pointing in. Finish with a few sets of normal (toes pointing forward) calf raises.

The Weightlifter's Guide to Breathing

Maximum oxygenation is the goal in-between sets. This leads us to the question of how long to rest in-between sets or, in other words, how long we take to catch our breath before we begin another set. The simple answer is, listen to your body. Let's use an example. At the end of a heavy set, you're going to be breathing heavily. Between sets, you should rest long enough to allow your breathing to normalize. Beginning the next set before your breathing is normalized sets you up for your cardiovascular capacity to give out before your target muscles are fully taxed. In a nutshell, rest long enough in-between sets to catch your breath, and then begin your next set.

The M&F Superhero Workout

A true superhero needs to go for days on end, so to achieve this you will perform your circuits using the Heavy Volume Training method (HVT), which means staying in the rep ranges given and utilizing the max weight possible inside the range. That is, if you are getting to 15 every time during your sets, your weight should be heavier. Increasing your weight makes your body capable of taking a beating and continuing to go strong.

7 Tips for Sharp Abs

Training abs is easy. Training them right, and supporting their development... not so much.

9 Tricks to Burn Fat Fast

You can’t get lean without adhering to a clean diet, but at the same time, occasionally straying — a.k.a. cheating — can actually assist in losing fat. This doesn’t mean you should eat fast food all day long; rather, that you can increase carbohydrate and overall calorie intake for a single day. You can even have one meal of anything you want: a pizza, a burger and fries, lasagna, etc.

Training Style: Push-Pull

If you train your body over four consecutive days instead of three, you can still do a push-pull split. Do push (without triceps) and pull (without biceps and forearms) on the first two days, legs on Day 3, and arms on Day 4. Take at least one day off, then repeat.

9 Best Exercises You're Not Doing

Sometimes the best exercise is the one you’re not doing. And why, exactly, is such a great move not part of your training? Probably one of two reasons: a) you don’t know it exists, or b) it’s so challenging that you’d rather skip it and do something easier.

8 Things You Should Do During Every Workout

Unless you’re forced to walk 50 miles on broken glass to get to your gym, the saying “the hardest part of going to the gym is getting to the gym” doesn’t really hold true. In fact, we think the toughest part about the gym is making the most of your time spent there. That being said, here are eight things you should do during every workout for maximum results.

The 5 in 5 Gain Plan

Today’s bodybuilder is interested in not only the quickest, but also the smartest and healthiest way to add mass. FLEX, ever ready to serve, has answered this call for an efficient mass-gain strategy by constructing a program that will help you, the average reader, gain five solid pounds of muscle in five weeks, without an accompanying layer of lard around your middle.

The 8 Best Ways to Improve Your Squat

Try different bar positions on your back.  If you have a higher bar position – right at the base of your neck – you will need to have good mobility in your upper back, hips, and ankles to be able to keep your torso vertical during the squat .  If you don’t have this mobility and you are weak, you will more than likely tip forward as you descend into the bottom of the squat.  It is simple physics. The longer the distance from your hips to the bar (high bar position = increased moment arm), the greater the torque at the hips.  If you have a lower bar position (around mid-trap) and slightly wider stance (slightly wider than shoulder width) – you will decrease the distance from the bar to your hips (shorter moment arm) and you will have better leverage. This might allow you to stay more vertical when you squat if you have good core stability and enough hip mobility. Play around with the bar position to find the one that works best for you.

Increase Your Bench Press

This may seem like an odd workout to improve your bench press because there are no bench presses in it! Its primary purpose is to create structural balance. If all your muscles are not in balance, the opposing muscles (antagonists) could shut down. That’s why a trainee who has an extreme case of structural imbalance but corrects it could increase their bench press without performing any bench presses!

Six Reasons You Need Vitamin D

With summer long gone, are you finding it increasing difficult to get out and enjoy a little fresh air and sunshine? If so, chances are you’re like most Americans who find themselves deficient in what’s commonly referred to as the sunshine vitamin – vitamin D. But, while seasons may change, our basic needs do not. And, regardless of whether we’re blessed with the beautiful, scorching days of summer, or the dreary, often chilly days of fall, it’s extremely important to get vitamin D. Why?

10 Ways to Lose Muscle

Yes, extra calories can mean extra belly fat, but if you’re lifting consistently and correctly, most of what you’re taking in should be converted to muscle. The truth is your muscles will never grow without a surplus of calories. For a lean guy looking to put on muscle mass, 2,000 calories a day won’t cut it. In fact, this kind of restricted diet is actually the ideal recipe for losing muscle tis- sue and sparing fat, as it causes the body to shift into starvation mode and shed calorie-consuming muscle. It also makes you store fat for emergency energy. And the less protein you eat, the less of a chance you give your muscles to recover after a workout.

Coping With Injury

Ironically, injured people often treat their bodies with less care than they would while they’re healthy — when it needs to be at the very least flipped the other way around. Don’t push it when you have an injury; it’s easy to go overboard and “reach” for the point that you feel back to normal. Take a step back, get treated by a good practitioner, and take care of your rest and nutrition. It’s only a matter of time before you’ll be back to full strength.

Build Boulder Shoulders with the Ahrens Press

Ahrens had no choice but to press the dumbbells in this style because he used special loadable dumbbells that were very long; in other words, it was impossible to press them straight because they would hit each other with the massive poundages he routinely threw overhead. Because of the lateral pressing motion, this exercise forces the medial delts or “caps” to work harder.

Revitalize Your Abdominal Workouts

There's a strange thing about abs. Schizophrenically, they’re either overemphasized or ignored, and sometimes both, intermittently, by the same bodybuilder. Ab definition is widely regarded as the best visual indicator of leanness. Yet, unless you’re shirtless, your abs can’t convey anything to anyone; and, if you’re not buff, they still remain unseen even when you’re in the buff. For the latter reason, even many pro bodybuilders skip ab training until the final weeks before a contest.

On the other hand, foods high in fat and sugar can mess with your complexion. Cut the following items out of your diet in order to keep zits at bay.

5 Sex-Position Tweaks to Help Give Her an Orgasm Tonight

You get a great view and women like this position because they’re in control of the speed of the thrusting and the angle. To make it even more intense, have her get on her knees while bending forward so she's leaning toward your face, and then she can move in and out of you nice and slow. “This will help your penis hit her G spot while allowing her to angle her clit on your shaft as she uses her arms to hold onto you for balance,” says Patricia Taylor, Ph.D., sex educator and author of the newly revised Expanded Orgasm . Starting off slow and increasing the speed is key because it helps her really get warmed up, and when she's really excited, her clit grows larger as it becomes engorged and the larger area of sensation increases her ability to orgasm. Plus this slightly shifted position allows her to move however she likes. “If you’re in the mood for experimenting, wear a vibrating cock ring to really increase the sensation,” Taylor says.

The 4-Week Kettlebell Shred

Pavel says: Perform the exercises in the order they are listed. For example, on Monday of Week 1, do 3 sets of 5 reps of the double kettlebell front squat followed by three sets of five reps of the double kettlebell press. Take a four- to six-minute rest between sets. It seems like a lot of rest but don’t rush your training; this is not a lactic acid smoker, but serious strength training. On Mondays/Thursdays use 5-8 1RM in the double kettlebell front squat  and double kettlebell press.  For the kettlebell swings , beginners use 53 pounds, while advanced strength trained athletes use 70- 106-pound kettlebells.

3 Keys to A Bigger Bench Press

Performing heavy negatives once or twice a month does wonders for building strength. Bodybuilders that don't have a "negatives day" in their routine are really missing out on huge gains. As a quick refresher, negatives are reps that concentrate on the eccentric, or lowering phase of an exercise. Our muscles can handle 30-40% more weight on the negative portion of a rep, so taking advantage of that taps into plenty of underexploited fibers in your pecs and trains your body and mind to deal with heavier weight. To perform negatives on the bench, add 30-40% more weight than you'd normally use for 10 reps (after a few warm-up sets, of course). So if you're pressing 250 pounds for 10 reps, add an extra 75 pounds (30%) onto the bar. Unrack the weight and resist the negative all the way down for a full five seconds or more. Once the bar touches your chest, have your training partner help you bring the bar back up to the starting position and repeat this for 3-5 total agonizing reps. Use this method sparingly - 1-3 sets, once or twice per month - to avoid overtraining or injury. Besides, after training like this, you'll likely be too sore to want to do it again soon.

The One-Rep Workout for Incredible Strength

Getting bull strong isn’t just good for the ego. Stronger muscles are generally bigger muscles with a greater capacity for work. Maximum strength training also thickens your bones and connective tissues, making them less susceptible to common injuries, especially as you get older. The best and quickest way to get superstrong is to lift the heaviest weights possible—loads that you can only manage about one rep with. It may not sound like much work, but heavy training is exhausting, just in a different way from the higher-volume pump training  you’re probably accustomed to. Doing sets of one rep won’t cause the burning you feel doing 8–12 reps on curls, but it will take your full concentration. Still, because the sets are short and you need to rest fully between them to recover, it’s a relatively comfortable and fun way to train, and the satisfaction you’ll get from seeing your lifts improve dramatically over time will be a powerful motivator to keep going.

Young individuals in the study either completed a moderate-intensity exercise or a high-intensity exercise before ingesting a fat-packed milkshake. The results: 25 minutes after completing moderate-intensity cycling, there was less of a decline in blood vessel function after consuming the shake. But in just eight minutes for the high-intensity cycling group, there was not only a preventitive fall in blood vessel function but also a significant improvement in overall blood vessel function that was greater than the moderate-intensity exericse group.
