Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Wednesday, July 15, 2015 - You might be unsure about your evolving direction because the Cancer New Moon rattles your 8th House of Transformation, evoking a sense of discomfort by pushing you to explore feelings that you would rather forget.

5 Ways to Work Out Without Weights

For instance, perform wide-grip pullups to just shy of failure. Immediately bring your grip in and turn your palms to face you so you’re doing a chinup. Do as many chinups as you can and then bring your hands in even closer so you’re doing a close-grip chinup with hands nearly touching. On pushups, you could start with your hands touching (a diamond pushup) and then move them out to shoulder width. When you can’t do any more reps like that, place your hands on a bench or seat so your body is at an incline—a much easier position to do pushups in. Rep out to failure.

16 Greatest Physiques of All Time

In this list, we've narrowed the field to the best of the best. In our opinion, these are the eight greatest bodybuilder and physique competitors and the eight greatest celebrity physiques that we've ever seen. All 16 athletes were once Cinderellas, but now they've taken the spotlight through hard work in and out of the gym. Which physique reigns supreme? That's for you to decide.

Supplement Your Mass

We know why you’ve neglected to step it up – with so many different supplements on the market today, you don’t know what to take, when to take it or how much of it to take. Well, leave the planning to us. Here, we give you a supplement plan for gaining mass that starts simple and progresses steadily, brining you to a hardcore mass supplement program while building big time muscle along the way.

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.

The Extreme Fat-Loss Circuit

If your goal includes six-pack abs, then your workouts are going to have to become metabolic at some point. This means complex moves performed for high reps. Bianca Sultana, NCSF-CPT gave us a perfect example of a workout that would meet all those requirements.

10 Rules to Eating for Mass

However, although there may not be any secrets to eating for size, there are rules — 10, to be exact. Know and live by these rules and you will gain the mass you want. And when we say live by them we mean live by them. Bodybuilding, after all, is a life- style, not a part-time hobby. You shouldn’t expect to grow following a diet only some of the time, any more than if you hit the weights only some of the time. It’s about a commitment to the body- building lifestyle that counts, which means 24/7/365 focus, discipline and drive. Remember: every time you eat a meal, you are bodybuilding. So, eat well and eat often.

Best for Boulder Shoulders

To sum it all up, the research concluded that it’s best to use several different exercises to build impressive shoulders. The best exercises for the anterior deltoid were: the Smith machine shoulder press, free-weight bench press, and pec deck.

Directions : Stand with your feet half a foot apart. Quickly, bend at your knees drop your hands down to the floor. At the same time, kick your legs out behind you. With your body in a straight line, do a push up. Quickly bring your feet back in, bring your arms behind you, and jump forward as far as you can, propelling your arms to help drive your body forward. Land on both feet and assume the initial stance. 

Protein Shakedown

The world of protein options is expanding. No longer are gym goers looking to throw back a shake forced to choose from only milk or plant based proteins. Thanks to new technology, your post-workout beverage can now harnesses the power of animal proteins, giving you all vital nutrients of beef or chicken in a more easily digestible form without the hassle of cooking. We took a closer look at the science behind this new protein development and how it can help you start packing on slabs of muscle.

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.

Is Coffee Bad for Your Health? - Born Fitness

Let’s cut to the chase: People who drink four or more cups coffee per day are 50 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who pass on the beverage. While you might start shaking at the thought of four cups, the amount of caffeine is still less than one bottle of 5 Hour Energy. But while most caffeinated drinks are just energy in a bottle or a cleverly hidden charge of sugar, coffee actually improves your sensitivity to insulin, which is a major factor in preventing diabetes and weight gain. In fact, Chinese researchers calculated that each cup of coffee decreases your risk of type 2 diabetes by 7 percent.

How to Get Six Pack Abs Without Doing Crunches or Sit-ups | Eat This Not That

Unfortunately for beer lovers, a six-pack of cold ones and six-pack abs are mutually exclusive. “My clients repeatedly hear my reminders that I can't help them out-train their poor nutritional and lifestyle choices, and this includes drinking alcohol,” says Horton. When you down a drink, be it beer, wine or liquor, your body has to break down the alcohol before it can process all the other food in your system. This slows down the metabolic process, and can make it difficult to strip away the layer of fat that’s covering your abs. What’s more, research suggests that consuming just half a drink (a 6-ounce beer, a 2.5-ounce glass of wine or half a shot of liquor) can significantly increase appetite and the number of calories you subsequently consume—even if you still feel stone-cold sober. The bottom line: Ditch the booze if you really want to see your abs shine through.

102 Ways to Burn Fat Fast

The ultimate tip list to losing weight and keeping it off.

The Workout to Add Inches to Your Chest

Do this workout instead of your normal chest workout at most twice per week. Take at least one full day of rest between workouts. (You’ll need it.) Increase the weight you use from workout to workout while maintaining great technique.

On Trial: Back Squat vs. Front Squat

Defense The regular (back) squat is the most natural way to squat and allows the use of more weight, which can lead to greater muscle growth.Prosecution Because most people are unaccustomed to doing them, front squats may not allow for the use of as much weight as regular squats. Placing the bar on the front of the body changes the biomechanics, offering different benefits from the regular squat.

12 "Zero Belly" Recipes

By that I mean real food—food with the power to reverse the fat-gene switches that are triggered by our modern processed diets and set us back on the path to perfect health. In fact, studies show that the more processed food you eat, the greater your weight—even if you eat the same number of calories. It all goes back to inflammation, and why I built Zero Belly to calm the fire and turn off the fat-storage genes that processed foods turn on.

Dissecting Mark Wahlberg's Workouts

Mark Wahlberg is famous for his transformations; that is, his transformation from a Boston kid with eight siblings to a 90s rapper and underwear model to a clean-cut family man (and hugely successful movie star). The one thing that's been consistent through these incarnations? His toned, muscular body. With massive biceps, tight abs and a big chest, he embodies the ideal for many men.

4 Benefits of Sleeping Naked

People who sleep in the buff have happier love lives, according to a survey of 1,000 British adults by a bed sheet company this year. This is not totally surprising, but 57 percent of nude sleepers were happy with their relationship, compared with 48 percent of pajama wearers. It’s not that taking each other’s clothes off isn’t sexy or fun, it’s just that being naked kind of takes the middleman out of the equation. Pardon the expression, unless there truly is a middleman in your bed—in which case, carry on.

3 Healthy Beef Jerkies

From its high protein-to-fat ratio all the way to its salty, savory aftertaste, jerky has been a popular "guy" food for quite some time. However, not all jerkies can be trusted. Although many brands of jerky contain products with similar calories (80-100), fat (less than 4 grams), saturated fat (less than 2 grams) and protein (9-13 grams), there are some key details such as sodium, sugar, and MSG that distinguish healthier jerkies from less healthy ones. Here are three jerkies that rise above the rest when it comes to nutritional standards. 

4 Best Exercises for Stronger Hamstrings

The reason many sprinters injure themselves is because of their hamstrings’ poor ability to decelerate the lower leg to stop it from extending. Exercises that focus on the eccentric strength of the hamstrings are a crucial strength tool. The best news is that you can achieve this using bodyweight only. Assume a tall kneeling position, with your heels secured under anything immovable. Without bending forward at the waist, contract your hamstrings and dig in hard with your heels as you slowly let your body descend toward the floor for a 5-8 second negative rep. You should land gently on the ground in a push up position. At this point, push yourself back up to the start position using your hands to help, and repeat. Focus on no more than 6 reps.

Weider Principle #24: Flushing

The late, great Joe Weider was always ahead of the curve. Take his flushing principle. OK, it wasn’t aptly named, and its directives—which we’ll discuss shortly—are far from cutting edge. But the concept of increasing your muscle pump to increase muscle gains remains distinctly modern. There is today a whole industry of nutritional supplements and training programs focused on blood volumization. When Joe Weider was first publishing articles about flushing several decades ago, the contention that the pump could aid growth and wasn’t merely a temporary ego boost was frequently scoffed at. But, as always, the father of modern bodybuilding was leading a revolution in workout science. This month we salute one of the most enduring tenets of that revolution. Get ready to pump up the volume.

JYM Pre JYM at

Directions For Pre JYM: DIRECTIONS: Mix 1 scoop of Pre JYM in 14oz. of water and drink 30-45 minutes before workouts. WARNINGS: Check with a qualified healthcare professional before taking this product. Do not use if you are sensitive to caffeine, pregnant or nursing a baby, under 18 years of age, have any known or suspected medical conditions, and/or if you are taking any prescription or OTC medications. Pre JYM is an incredibly strong pre-workout matrix that contains 300mg caffeine per serving, the equivalent of approximately 3 cups of coffee. Avoid using with any other caffeinated products. Too much caffeine may cause nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness, and, occasionally, rapid heartbeat. Always begin use with 1/2 scoop or less and assess your tolerance. Once tolerance is assessed, take a maximum dose of 1 scoop. To avoid sleeplessness, do not consume within 6 hours of bedtime. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

The Best Barbell-Only Back Workout

You’ll begin with the hang clean, an Olympic  weightlifting exercise that works everything but requires the traps to help heave weights from the knees to the shoulders. Then you can target the lats with rows from various angles. If overemphasizing chest work has left your front and back out of balance, you couldn’t ask for a better tool than the trusty barbell to set things right.

Look Better Naked in One Week

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you have a special someone to share it with then there's a good chance you'll be showing off your physique. If you're not confident with its current status, don't panic, there's still time to make some last minute repairs. True, seven days isn't much, but progress can be made physically and mentally, that is if you give it your best effort throughout the week.

The 67% Solution

Now that we got that little sermon out of the way, let’s talk about triceps. When I was competing, the guy with the most envied triceps in the game was Mike Christian. His triceps were very impressive — big, full and cross-striated. His were the standard by which all other triceps were measured, and I made it my goal to match or exceed even his level of development. Of course, each of us must work within our own genetic constraints. Christian happened to be blessed with great genes for triceps, and he certainly made the most of them. I figured my genes weren’t too shabby, either, and that with the right amount of effort, I could draw the judges’ attention away from his to my own.

Eat to Get Ripped

Now determine how those calories break down into grams of protein, carbs, and fat. Because getting ripped demands resistance training, and lifters need more protein than regular folks to repair muscle, set your daily protein intake at one gram per pound of body weight. You need carbs to provide energy for workouts and recover from training, so again, one gram per pound is good. As for fat, keep it low to keep calories under control (one gram of fat has more than twice the calories of a gram of protein or carbs) but not so low that you negatively impact hormones like testosterone: Start with 0.4g per pound per day.

Workout Finisher: Fat Incinerating Cardio

You’ve done your foam rolling. Actually spent time warming up with movement prep. Banged out heavy sets of deadlifts. Crushed the bench press, pull-up bar and leg press machine. You even managed to fit in a few rounds of high intensity intervals on the rowing machine. All that’s left is for you to shower, grab your protein shake and head on home. But wait, if you haven’t included a “finisher” - usually a brutal one to two set single-exercise or circuit protocol - you aren’t really finished with your workout.

The 10 Best Bodybuilding Exercises You Can Do

With so many great exercises available to choose from, picking the ten best bodybuilding exercises is a tough (and somewhat subjective) task.

Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Set to Fight Andre Berto

Boxing pound for pound king  Floyd Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) will reportedly fight Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) on September 12. A report on boxing website,  The Sweet Science , claims that Mayweather, who dominated Manny Pacquiao on the way to a unanimous decision win in his last fight on May 2, will complete the last of his six-fight deal with Showtime against the 31-year-old. According to The Sweet Science, the fight will be televised on free-to-air CBS as a reward for fans who have supported Mayweather during his long career.

The Benefits of Sleep According to Recent Research

Skip sleep, and the next day you’ll eat too many calories from fat and too few from carbs, according to a UPenn School of Medicine study. When subjects were kept from sleeping, a brain region called the salience network, which regulates emotions and bodily sensations like a racing heart, lit up and raised their fat cravings. By the way, if you do pig out, just don’t do it late at night: Eating when the body’s usually asleep can hamper learning, damage memory, hurt the immune system, and even lead to type-2 diabetes, UCLA researchers say.

The 9 Most Dangerously Addictive Junk Foods

The science of food addiction is very real, if so far understudied. What we do know is that some people’s brains chemically react to certain foods in the same way a crack addict’s lights up when he, er, lights up. “It’s been demonstrated that the reward centers of the brain get activated in response to the anticipation of eating a highly rewarding food,” says Jenny Arussi, MS, RD, an expert in unhealthy eating habits and founder of Change My Eating in LA. “And when the food is actually consumed, different parts of the brain are not optimally activated, causing a difficulty feeling satiated and a loss of control over eating.”
