Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, June 26, 2014

Thursday, June 26, 2014 - It seems like everyone wants to spend time with you now because you know how to kick up your heels and have fun while still remaining emotionally available. However, you can avoid the stress of being in such high demand today by redirecting the subject of a conversation away from your feelings and onto the concerns of others. Your cleverness allows you to skip through the day, but be careful that you don't sacrifice the needs of your heart in the process.

The 15 Most Important Exercises For Men

Every guy who’s into fitness has some methodology, piece of equipment, or program they like over anything else. Some like to circuit train every day, some follow bodybuilding protocols, and still others participate in any number of fitness trends and fads. However, there is a list of exercises that has withstood the test of time, and these moves have become staples in every serious lifter’s plan.

10 Hidden Physique Killers

Not every so-called "bodybuilder-friendly" food is all it's cracked up to be - and some seemingly unhealthy eats can actually be good for you.

The 20-30-40 Minute Workout

Keeping your hard-earned progress intact in the midst of a hectic schedule doesn’t have to be difcult as long as you focus on working the right muscle groups. The idea is to implement a three-day schedule that relies primarily on heavy, multi-joint exercises performed circuit-style to burn more calories and fat. “The smartest choice you can make is a high-intensity full-body plan that stimulates as many muscle fibers as possible,” Bell says.

Two Supersets to Six-Pack Abs

Sets – 5 Reps – Hold 30 sec. Plank it up: The plank may not be as alluring as dragon flags or inverted situps, but it holds value beyond the gym’s flavor of the week or your favorite Rocky training montage. Because planks increase positional strength along your transverse abdominis, they condition your abs to hold closer to your spine at rest. This will leave you with a flatter stomach and, probably, a few pairs of saggy jeans to chuck into the Goodwill bag. By supersetting this with the ab wheel for 30 seconds at a time, your transverse abs—the deep core muscles—get a double dose of gruesome but waistline-whittling work.

10 Ways to Train Like a Legend

When you  sleep  you're in an anabolic (muscle-building) state that's optimal for growth. “Your ultimate goal would be a quality night’s sleep between seven and nine hours,” says Kenn. “If you have a full work day ahead of you before you go to the gym, I would highly recommend a minimum of seven hours of sleep,” he adds. Whether you train in the morning, at night, or both, be sure to get some z's.

Boost the Testosterone Within

It’s not surprising that a killer workout can flood your veins with muscle-building T. It’s the physiological reward for getting under the bar and pushing yourself to your limits. How much of a hormonal response you get depends on the amount of muscle you use, as well as the training intensity and volume. In other words, you need to move big heavy weights to get the maximum test boost.

Best Pre-Workout Foods

Bananas “They’re nature’s PowerBar,” boasts Dr. Louise Burke, head of Sports Nutrition at the Australian Institute of Sport and coauthor of The Complete Guide to Food for Sports Performance: Peak Nutrition for Your Sport . Bananas are loaded with digestible carbohydrates (read: fuel) and are packed with potassium, which aids in maintaining nerve and muscle function. The body doesn’t store potassium for very long, so a medium banana before a workout will help keep nutrient levels high. Villacorta especially recommends bananas for morning exercisers: “Get up and eat a medium banana with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Wait about 30 minutes and then hit the gym. Your body will need the carbohydrates and protein.”

7 Tips for Building Muscle & Burning Fat

Follow these tips for gaining muscle mass while shredding body fat.

5 Things You Should Know About Eggs

2| While a yolk carries all of an egg's five grams of fat and 186 mg of cholesterol, it also packs about half the egg's six grams of protein, as well as its payload of amino acids and vitamins A, B, D, E, and K. This is why many lifters opt for whole eggs plus added whites.

Supplement Spotlight: Fuel Up with These Pre-Workouts

Excess body fat isn’t good for much except this: It’s a great source of workout fuel. The key is to get your body to let go of this stored energy pre- and post-workout. These supps provide a two-for-one, helping fuel workouts with your own fat. • Raspberry Ketones Rising in popularity, raspberry ketones can increase metabolic rate and release fat from storage. • Capsicum Sometimes listed as capsaicin, this supplement from chili peppers helps drive up your metabolic rate so you naturally burn more calories. • Green Coffee Bean Extract This fat burner contains a higher concentration of chlorogenic acid than do roasted beans. This is the chemical that works with caffeine to release and burn body fat.

Instant Muscle: Dumbbell Ideas

Sometimes you need to break habits, and dumbbells can be the perfect substitute for your usual equipment on your favorite lifts, unlocking better (and safer) gains. For instance, upright rows are nearly always done with a barbell, but that can place shearing forces on your shoulder joints and often result in rotator cuff injuries. The dumbbell version is safer because your arms move freely; your body decides the right range of motion.

Hidetada Yamagishi : Team Gaspari IFBB Pro

Here I am only 10days out from Chicago Pro 212 and all I can say is I'm feeling great! I wrote about my past mistake ( overtraining, under eating etc...) in my previous blog. I learned  enough and now I am training with Charles Glass and I just started working my nutrition with IFBB pro guru George Farah. Well, let my physique make the noise. See you in 10days!


After Shock: Brian Casad's Body-Transforming Program

The Best Time to Take Creatine - Born Fitness

While the aforementioned study insinuated that after was better, at this time the “just take it at any time” or maybe more appropriately, “take it when it works for you” is the best way to go. Many people take supplements that include creatine, so if that’s in your pre- or post- workout drink, you should receive all the benefits. Optimal dosing still appears to be between 2 to 5 grams per day. You can “load” for the first 5 to 7 days to help saturate your cells, but beyond that there’s no benefit to taking large amounts. So save your money and take the smaller dose; it’ll still offer maximum results.

The Drive (and Despair) of The Rock: Dwayne Johnson on His Depression, Decision to Fire Agents and Paul Walker's Death - Hollywood Reporter

He also is preparing a second autobiography, following his 2000 best-seller The Rock Says . The new, untitled volume is out in the fall, and in addition to his film career, it may go into his 2008 divorce, which plunged him into a third depression — though he doesn't go into details of his breakup. "Once I manned up and became accountable for the mess I was in, that's when it all hit me," he says. "What kind of dad does this make me? What kind of man will I now become? Failing at marriage and as a husband was a heavy thing, and divorce had that special way of knocking me on my ass."

Macronutrients for More Muscle Mass

When it's comes to building strength and muscle mass , it’s not just about the weights you’re putting on the bar – proper nutrition is 75% or more of the whole process. But even those who realize the importance of nutrition can get it wrong by overcomplicating things. You try this diet and that diet because someone recommended it but are you really examining the diet on its merits? Is it meeting your needs in terms of recovery and overall goals? Bring it back to basics by focusing on the importance of the three macronutrients and a little bit of strategic supplementation.

3 Overrated Supplements - Born Fitness

That doesn’t mean glutamine is without benefits. It can help your immune system, but in terms of fitness goals (beyond staying healthy), you won’t see any benefit. Most importantly to the marketing hype, your body tightly regulates the amount of glutamine your muscles actually get. Thus, glutamine does not induce increased muscle protein synthesis.

JYM Shred JYM at

When you’re ready to elevate your shred and torch some serious body fat, there are three things you need: a solid training program, like my Shortcut to Shred workouts; a solid diet, like my Shortcut to Shred nutrition plan; and a solid supplement regimen to supercharge the fat loss you've initiated through hard work and clean eating. Shred JYM is that entire supplement regimen in one fat-blasting formula. It's a powerfully dosed, fully loaded fat-loss weapon built with six synergistic ingredients. It's my personal fat-loss blend.*

4 Ways to Become Better - Born Fitness

How does giving more make your life better? Giving is the ultimate test of passion. When you do something with no expectation in return, you easily find what fuels you. (And conversely, what doesn’t.) You also learn about your ability to communicate, lead, and follow tasks that might be outside of your comfort zone. All of these are valuable but oftentimes they are learned in a pressure situation, like your job. When you can build capabilities in a less stressful situation (such as when you’re volunteering your time), you remove many of those barriers and grow as a person in ways you would never expect. Many of my best lessons in leadership came not from running a company but while tutoring inner city children during my spare time.

Chest Full of Junk

Junk that builds up in the pecs, and especially the pectoralis minor, can lock your shoulders and arms so that your range of motion (ROM) is compromised. Restoring proper ROM means that more actual muscle fibers are stimulated during exercise and your pecs can experience greater growth. Your rhomboids do the opposite of the pecs since they are attached between your shoulder blades and pull your scapula toward your spine. It’s important to work the junk out of them, too. Packing these two techniques together can really open up the shoulders and help you better stabilize heavy loads.

Healthy Recipes: No-bake Protein Cookies and Egg Nog - Born Fitness

And yet, for some people the ability to indulge is limited by the fear of undoing your hard work. Or guilt and anxiety results by the mere the thought of limitation, especially during times of celebration. Even if you know you should “Enjoy these cookies,” the well-intentioned freedom and encouragement is met with resistance and stress. In my approach, dessert doesn’t happen every day, so there’s no need to hold back when you eat something that isn’t healthy. But snacking does happen enough that sometimes it’s good to have healthy variations that trick your taste buds into enjoying what you eat without a second thought.

The Summer Body Project: Exercise Guide

While standing with feet at shoulder width, grab the bar with a slightly wider than shoulder width grip while resting the bar across your traps/upperback. Hold your chest up and out, pull shoulder blades together, and lift the bar off the rack using knees and hips. Take a step or two back, landing with feet shoulder width apart and toes pointed out slightly. While keeping elbows high and heels on the floor, squat down until thighs are parallel to the ground. Then, extend hips and knees upward maintaining the same posture until you reach the starting position.

How to Recover from 6 Relationship Screwups

No matter how well you perform as a loving and attentive boyfriend or husband, you’re bound by the universal laws of relationships—a space governed by forces such as forgetfulness and failed promises. When you screw up, your woman will rightly cast you into the doghouse. (What can we say? To echo Tupac: That’s just the way it is.) But, assuming you’re not the kind of guy who enjoys life in the metaphorical backyard, you’ll want to bounce back not only fast but also with a stronger relationship than before. Thanks to psychologist and relationship expert Seth Meyers, Psy.D., and Steve Santagati, author of The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate , here’s how to rebound from the clumsiest of behavior.

How To Train For Maximum Muscle Growth

As a former skinny lad, I know the ups and downs of the muscle-building process all too well. I've been there and done that. Fast-forward years later, and I've helped dozens of guys pack on muscle. They initially come to me with preconceived notions on the best way to build muscle—high volume, low volume, proper splits, specific set and rep schemes, and on and on. I help them go back to the basics to explore what makes muscle grow.

Laughing Makes Your Brain Work Better

Laughter is great not just for your mood, but for your gray matter, says a new study out of Loma Linda U., where a group of adults who watched a funny video for 30 minutes did better on unrelated short-term- memory tests afterward than a separate group who’d just sat twiddling their thumbs.

Rear Delts Makeover

The high-pulley cable reverse flye is a gym gem that trains the rear delts with smooth, constant tension. For increased effectiveness, make sure that the pulleys are set just above head height for your first set. On the sets that follow, adjust the pulleys down a click, which slightly alters the manner in which the rear delts are recruited.  You’ll finish with the reverse pec deck. By this point, your rear delts are likely toast but your core musculature is bound to be highly fatigued from all the standing resistance. The seated comforts and fixed range of motion of the reverse pec deck allow you to hit your rear delts for a few more sets.

The World Cup's 25 Fittest Players

Well, to be clear, these guys are all ludicrously fit. Maybe the one exception would've been Brazilian Ronaldo in his final World Cup in 1998, in which people started calling him Fat Ronaldo, an unfortunate nickname for one of the best scorers of all time. Regardless, all of the guys in the 2014 World Cup can run punishing sprints for hours on end, but which ones are the fastest and have the most talent and precision that can take their respective teams to higher levels? Here’s a list of some of the best players to watch in the tournament.

The Fit Five: Today's Most Popular Diets, Explained

"Elimination diets remove a food or food group from the diet. This type of diet is often used to help diagnose a food allergy or intolerance. Once the food or food group is excluded from the diet for a period of weeks to months, the client is monitored for symptom relief. If adverse effects persist, then it's likely the suspected food or food group is not responsible for causing the symptoms. When food groups are eliminated from the diet, special attention should be paid for developing vitamin and mineral deficiencies."

44 Getting Shredded Ebook - Born Fitness

“I’ve been working out for a long, long time, but when I have training-related questions I turn to Adam Bornstein. Adam possesses encyclopedic knowledge of training and nutrition, which is great, but the real reason I turn to him is because he isn’t dogmatic in his instruction. Fitness isn’t a black or white proposition, and he is among a handful of trainers who sees the full spectrum of greys between the two. That kind of agnosticism isn’t too common these days, but then Adam isn’t your common trainer.”

Flex Lewis Back Attack

Lewis does sets of rack deadlifts with 315 and 405, and a set with 495. The bar begins each rep from power-rack supports set just above his knees. He uses straps, chalk, a belt with FLEX LEWIS on the back and his iPod. “Deads off the floor is a different exercise, and it works glutes and hams, too. Deads off a rack works lower back. I’ve always done them explosive. I psych myself up so much that I go completely blank. I don’t know what I do with reps. I have my training partners tell me.” I count for him. He knocks out 11, plates clattering, banging each rep off the supports.
