Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 - You may not want anyone to know that you're wrestling with your doubts now, but there's no reason to fake confidence if you aren't currently feeling it. It's healthier to show more emotional restraint instead of taking something too far when you are not totally invested. Spontaneity comes naturally to you, but you benefit today from some quiet time to reassess your direction. You don't have to spill the beans if you're not in the mood; leaving some details to the imagination serves you well.

The Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship

But for many entrepreneurs, the battle wounds never fully heal. That was the case for John Pope, CEO of WellDog, a Laramie, Wyoming-based energy technology firm. On Dec. 11, 2002, Pope had exactly $8.42 in the bank. He was 90 days late on his car payment. He was 75 days behind on the mortgage. The IRS had filed a lien against him. His home phone, cell phone, and cable TV had all been turned off. In less than a week, the natural-gas company was scheduled to suspend service to the house he shared with his wife and daughters. Then there would be no heat. His company was expecting a wire transfer from the oil company Shell, a strategic investor, after months of negotiations had ended with a signed 380-page contract. So Pope waited.

Kai's 10 Big Back Principles

1. WARMUP:  The most unorthodox aspect of Greene’s back training is evident before the workout even begins, when he warms up for 15 minutes with trisets of various exercises, including bent over dumbbell rear laterals (which focus on the rear deltoids), upright rows (which focus on the traps),and dips (which target the chest as well as the front delts and triceps). In one workout we observed, he did six warmup exercises: trisets of wide-grip pullups, dips, and parallel-grip pullups followed by trisets of rear laterals, upright rows, and straight-arm pulldowns. Weights are kept light, and the sets fall well short of failure.“This is just to get the blood flowing and get my mind into it and kick things off,” he says of the warmup exercise selection.Greene never thinks of one bodypart in isolation. He’s always focused on the complete picture of his physique, thus he’ll include dips with pullups, and he’ll string together work for rear delts and traps with lats. “I’m always thinking of different ways of contracting my muscles and getting the most effective rear double biceps and rear lat spread.

Ronnie's Monster Weights

Egotistic lifters would like to believe that heavy weight is the most important aspect of bodybuilding. They’re wrong, but so are their opponents who think that heavy weight is the culprit behind injuries and delayed development. That’s not an indictment of heavy weight, but of the way it’s often handled. Perform an exercise properly with good form and there’s no such thing as too much weight. The point is that heavy weight, perfect form and optimal pump are all equal parts of the same equation. One is not more important than the other.

4 Weeks to Massive Muscle Program

You’ll train chest and triceps the day after legs. After hitting the meat of the chest with flat-bench barbell presses, you’ll immediately attack the pecs from the same angle with dumbbells. And similar to how you alternated between squat variations for legs, each time you train chest, perform a different angle (flat-bench in week 1, incline in week 2, decline in week 3 and flat-bench again in week 4) first in the rotation, starting with the barbell version, then following that up with dumbbells. You’ll end chest day with an isolation move (cable flye) to finish things off with an incredible pump before moving on to triceps. Your triceps training will involve bread-and-butter exercises performed in the traditional hypertrophy rep range (8-12) to pack maximum mass onto the upper arms.

Straight Up Quads Workout for Bigger, Stronger Legs

For a typical gym rat who’s neither a competitive bodybuilder nor a serious athlete, the best bet may just be a leg workout that incorporates mass-building principles as well as a quick dose of explosive movements. The following workout offers just that. It addresses power through box jumps; hypertrophy via front squats in a moderate rep range and drop sets of hack squats ; and, for good measure, a hefty workload for your stabilizing muscle fibers with unbalanced lunges. Frankly, it’s a great routine for the guy who wants to look good from the waist down at the pool this summer and also have the ability to engage in the occasional pick-up game without getting embarrassed.

9 Fat-Fighting Supplement Combos That Work

Sometimes increasing your body's fat-burning potential is as easy as using certain spices in your food. Adding a little red pepper or ginger is an easy way to spice up your meals and increase your metabolism. If you like spicy food, then boosting fat loss can be as simple as eating. Capsaicin is the chemical in chili (red) peppers that makes them spicy. It boosts bodyfat loss by increasing metabolic rate and fat-burning through its ability to raise levels of norepin-ephrine. It also works to significantly decrease hunger and thus your overall caloric intake.

James Bond's life shaken and stirred in new 'Spectre' trailer

James Bond is in a whole heap of globe-trotting trouble again in the new trailer for the 24th 007 film Spectre (out Nov. 6), and he’s even rethinking his career as a secret agent. GASP! Starting in Mexico City — with Daniel Craig’s superspy looking cool in a Day of the Dead mask — and venturing throughout the globe, the movie puts Bond in big-time car chases against new foes such as Mr. Hinx (Dave Bautista) and in the arms of new love interests such as Italian widow Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci) and Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), an old arch-enemy’s daughter and a romantic entanglement with whom Bond has a heart-to-heart.

10 Healthy Foods That Give You Energy

When you’re trying to keep energy levels high, one of the most important things to remember is to never skip meals. Once you go over 5 hours without food, your body starts running on empty. Hunger starts to overwhelm your senses, leading to thoughtless food choices (like hitting the nearest fast food joint or vending machine.) Instead, rely on small snacks of about 150-200 calories that can help replenish your energy at a slow-and-steady pace until it’s time for your next meal. You can incorporate these 10 picks, which have extra energy-boosting power, into your snack. Or, eat them as part of a meal on days you know you need that extra boost, as a pre-workout snack,

Big Louie

Today, at age 62, this 1973 IFBB Mr. America and two-time IFBB Universe winner (1973–1974), is a quiet, thoughtful, introspective man. Thanks to his enormous physique and run as CBS’ The Hulk from 1977–1981, Lou Ferrigno is one of two bodybuilders who are truly household names (Arnold Schwarzenegger being the obvious other). He still works out and his acting career continues with work on The Celebrity Apprentice and The King of Queens, as well as voice-over work in Adventure Time and 2012’s blockbuster movie The Avengers. A family man, Lou and his wife of 34 years, Carla, have three grown children and live in California, where they held this November’s NPC and IFBB Ferrigno Legacy Contest.

The Get Lean for Life Diet

When you eat healthy foods, you don’t have to worry much about calories. In fact, in the early stages of your diet, we suggest you don’t focus on calories at all—it will only make you hate the process. Still, you need some measure of what you’re taking in so you don’t overeat—or undereat, which can slow your metabolism.  You must estimate your portion sizes, which you can do with a wave of your hand. A three ounce serving of lean meat (your main source of protein on this plan) is about the size of your palm. A cup of starchy carbs, such as from potatoes or rice, is the size of your clenched fist, while a serving of fruit is one whole piece or one cup. A tablespoon of healthy fats from oils like olive or coconut is roughly the area of your thumbnail, and a serving of nuts or seeds amounts to a handful. Aim for about 10 total servings of protein .

2.  Stability Ball Lying Leg Curl Lie on floor with heels on top of a  stability ball  and legs extended. Raise your hips off the ground, trying to keep your hips raised up during the entire exercise. Flex knees and pull the ball as close to your glutes as possible. Hold the ball here for 2-3 seconds. As you get stronger, you can progress to a one leg lying leg curl. This will strengthen your hamstrings, while avoiding impact on your knees.

Take the Guesswork Out of Training

How many times have you caught yourself asking the question, “Which exercise should I do?” You get cranking on a good program, but still find yourself questioning why certain body parts just aren’t getting any better. You look around the gym and see a lot different exercises being performed and probably say to yourself, “Should I do that?” The better question should really be, “What am I trying to improve?” Exercises are created for a specific purpose, but when it comes to building size and getting razor-sharp cuts, that reason becomes even more important. Choosing the best exercise is difficult, since most exercises have variations and may activate more than one muscle or muscle group, making it difficult to pinpoint the true target. You also have to consider how to get all your body parts worked out inside of a week while ensuring that your overall goal is met.

The Two-Move Workout

When you’re busy there isn’t always time for a workout. One or two exercises maybe, but not a whole routine. Most of the time you skip it altogether; after all, what good is just a half-hour session? But that’s a mistake. A short workout forces you to perform only the most essential exercises—the ones responsible for most of your gains—with an increased focus and intensity that revs your metabolism harder and keeps your heart rate elevated. Spend the holiday season mastering those cornerstone movements with this routine. When your calendar clears up again in the New Year, you’ll wonder who needs all that “extra” time anyway.

Big Arms: Biceps By Themselves

You’ve done curls to exhaustion but your arms are the same size. It’s time for a change. Curls are often done with sloppy form from mechanically disadvantageous angles, robbing your biceps of the stimulation they need to grow. Instead, the front delts take over the movement. Get your biceps doing the brunt of the work. Put this routine in place of your normal biceps training and see the difference in weeks.

The Truth About Post-Workout Nutrition

In life and in fitness, consistency is one of the main secrets to success. You can’t work out once in a while and expect to see real results. The same holds true when it comes to your post-workout nutrition; it’s consistency over time that will bring about major changes. Feed your muscles what they need after every workout within the metabolic window, and you will be amazed at the body you'll achieve.

Carries are the bridge between being strong and having great strength-capacity.

Your Nutrition Problems Solved

Taking zinc and magnesium supplements is one way to be sure you’re getting your fair share of two minerals that are critical for normal testosterone production and response. However, both minerals are often not absorbed efficiently, especially when taken with calcium. One way to ensure that you are absorbing the maximum of both minerals is to take a supplement such as ZMA (zinc and magnesium aspartate, plus vitamin B6). Research also supports the notion that this supplement boosts testosterone levels in athletes.

5 Moves for Leaner Abs and A Stronger Core

Lay on your back with a kettlebell in your right hand. Raise the kettlebell up, positioning it above your shoulder, and bend your right leg keeping foot on ground. Push the kettlebell into the air with your right arm, lifting chest and upper back off ground while shifting your body to let your left elbow and forearm rest on the ground. Raise left side of body up by pushing up with left hand and right leg. Swing left leg behind body and rest left foot and knee on the ground. Raise up off left hand using core to support and stabilize. Now, stand up straight by pushing down with right leg bringing left leg forward. Finally, slowly reverse all moves until you are laying back on the ground again.

3-Day Ab Workout for a Shredded Six-Pack

That’s it. Designing your core workouts with exercises that fit these categories is all you’ll ever need to build strong abs and an injury-resistant lower back. They can be used as a single progression—one month you could focus only on pure stabilization, work on dynamic movements the next month, and then finally do integrated stabilization exercises the month after—or as a separate focus on each of your training days. I recommend doing all core exercises, except the ones in the integrated stabilization category, first in your workouts, before you train other muscle groups.

Straight-Up Forearms Workout

The  forearms  serve a number of duties. Not only do they flex and extend the wrists, but perhaps more important, they contract statically (along with the muscles of the hands) to assist in gripping heavy objects. It’s easy to see, then, how a weak pair of forearms could be the limiting factor in possessing elite-level strength. They also round out a top-level physique. If your grip is lacking, so too will be the amount of weight you can use on deadlifts, rows, weighted pullups, and other measures of brute strength. Guess how many successful  strongman  competitors have a weak grip: zero. Same goes for the top competitors in the IFBB—you got ’em or you can’t win.

Push-Up Max Reps

One other push-up-enhancing exercise Even-Esh suggests isn’t quite so common in gyms: band pull-aparts. “These strengthen the backs of your shoulders and also improve shoulder health,” he says. To perform band pull-aparts, stand holding an elastic band with an overhand grip (keeping a little tension in the band) with your arms extended directly out in front of you. Keeping your elbows locked, pull your hands apart in a reverse-flye motion until your arms are pointed directly out to the sides. “Perform these slow and controlled, alternating between underhand and overhand grips for sets of 10 to 20 reps, then boosting up to 30, 40 and even 50 reps per set,” Even-Esh says.

7 Ways You Think You're Being Healthy When You're Really Not

Everyday habits shape your long term success, which is why the foods you put into your body today are so important for your physique and well-being tomorrow. That being said, the "smart" choices you're making to achieve a healthy lifestyle may be backfiring. Yes, you pick up tips from authoritative sources, adhere to highly praised eating regimens, and shop for foods marketed toward athletes because, hey, if it’s good enough for a pro, it’s good enough for you. But some of these seemingly good steps toward better health and fitness are actually doing a disservice to your body. Here, we navigate the lifestyle choices that are keeping your abs covered and your health below par.

Summer Six-Pack Program

How it works : The best way to throw the body off and fight efficiency is to keep changing up your workouts to prevent adaptation. You’ll need to train three days a week for four weeks with the following routines: a high-rep workout to build your work capacity and burn loads of calories; a barbell- based strength day to maximally stimulate muscle; and a blend of strongman and circuit training to challenge muscles you haven’t worked before along with your heart. This three-pronged attack will confuse your metabolism and trick your body into burning more fat (accompanied by a sound diet), and you should see results within a month. It’s inefficiency at its most effective.

Slow Down for More Results: Why Moderate Workouts Matter

HIIT workouts are a great way to train hard and burn maximum calories in a short amount of time. But they can’t take the place of easier-paced cardio workouts, which create your training base. While HIIT takes mental focus and motivation, lower-intensity workouts give your body—and mind—a chance to relax and simply enjoy a run or ride without red-lining. “If you never have aerobic days, you’ll start to suffer from overtraining syndrome and your gains will start to disappear…or you’ll start to feel stale,” says exercise physiologist Tom Holland, author of Beat the Gym: Personal Training Secrets without the Personal Training Price Tag . “We need those lower-intensity and tempo days, too. Variation is what gives us true results.”
