Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, July 27, 2015

Monday, July 27, 2015 - People just don't seem to understand your motives today. You have an abundance of great ideas and plenty of energy while the reflective Moon is camping out in your inspirational sign. In fact, you may be climbing so high in the atmosphere now that you must fly solo because no one can keep up with you. Stop trying to include others on your adventure; you'll soar to greater altitudes than ever before when you accept that you're on your own. The sky is the limit if you are brave enough to go it alone.

The 5 Best Programs for Putting on Mass

Power, Rep Range and Shock (PRRS) was built by "Natural Freak" Eric Broser . PRRS training is a great program for intermediates and advanced lifters. Each acronym stands for a different protocol for each workout. Power stands for a more compound movements done in a power rep range. Rep Range is more a typical bodybuilding type workout and Shock workouts are one in their own. Shock workouts utilize any type of shocking principle, primarily supersets for the same bodypart. Every week you will be utilizing a different acronym. In addition each acronym uses different workout tempos which can increase your time under tension. PRRS training was designed to keep your body guessing and keep the results coming. A positive thing about this program is that you never get bored, every workout is different. Shock workouts are something you should try; you really change yourself on those days.  If cycled correctly, you will never plateau and can expect to buy bigger shirts. PRRS uses a lower volume, lower frequency approach that can be a problem for someone who requires more volume. You can customize your PRRS routine by increasing the volume or frequency.

3 Pointers for Building Your Own Home Gym

The equipment you purchase will be based on how much available space you have and how much your budget allows for. If you have a two-car garage and a big budget you can build an insane gym. By the same token if you have a small room and a small budget you can still construct a gym that will give you awesome results.

Here's how to finally put some size on those chicken calves of yours: …

Arnold's Bench Basics

This isn’t the ideal way for bodybuilders to bench press. As you lift the bar, think about pushing your shoulders forward and squeezing your pecs together at the top of each rep. This increase in range of motion is fairly small, but it’s nonetheless significant: It prevents you from using your triceps too much at the top and keeps maximum tension on the pecs. Locking out your elbows will do little for you as a bodybuilder. Powerlifters also adjust their grip width on the bar (wider or narrower) according to what allows them to lift the most weight. The grip width used by bodybuilders will vary depending on individual proportions, but you need to make sure the pecs do more of the work. With too narrow a grip, you end up working the triceps rather than the pecs. I suggest keeping your bench-press grip outside shoulder width for maximum pec development. Another key benching technique for powerlifters is keeping the elbows in tight to their sides to increase power output. For bodybuilding, keep your elbows out to your sides, to the point where your upper arms are about perpendicular to your torso.

The Arm Alphabet

Class is in session. The subject is everyone’s favorite: arms. The teacher is Roelly Winklaar, fresh of a breakout year and owner of arguably the two best arms in the world. Anyone who wants to debate his arm superiority, raise your hand and wait to be called on. (We see you, Phil Heath.) Now, take careful notes as our teacher explains his arm alphabet. With a few digressions as the lecture progresses, these are the tenets of Winklaar’s bi and tri construction from A to Z.

Gustavo Badell's High Volume Back Training

One Mr. Olympia record is likely to stand the test of time—greatest leap in standings. Gustavo Badell jumped 21 places from his first Olympia to his second. The Venezuelan-born Puerto Rican barely made a ripple during his first six professional years. In 17 contests, he made only one posedown. But that qualified him for the 2002 Olympia—where he got punked, 24th out of 25. When he next qualified, he placed a shocking third in the 2004 O. The following year, he repeated that bronze spot. Badell won only three lesser pro shows over his 38-contest, 15-year pro career, but his back-to-back Olympia thirds in 2004–05 mark bodybuilding’s most improbable upsurge.

5 Easy Ways to Start Building Bigger Biceps

So Now Kale is Bad For You? - Born Fitness

This wasn’t some blog. It was a major magazine doing an even more major disservice. And they should be embarrassed for publishing this food-shaming post. Here’s why: Writing health content comes with a social responsibility. People will read this and instead of consulting with a nutritionist or doctor, they’ll treat it as gospel. Maybe not everyone, but enough people that it will impact eating behaviors in a very dangerous way. So if you’re unwilling to respect and acknowledge that responsibility then you just shouldn’t be creating health content.

My Six Favorite Mass Exercises

Let's get right to the guts of the matter. I could run through my list of favorite workouts, principles, techniques and combinations of exercises, but it all comes down to one basic old-fashioned “best” exercise for each bodypart, without which you cannot reach your maximum mass potential. That exercise is not the only one in the workout, but it’s the foundation movement. It works more of the muscle harder, heavier and more thoroughly than any other. Not every workout has to start with one of these favorites, but your training program should be designed around them.

iSatori Bio-Gro at

Absolutely! Many athletic women already do. Because Bio-Gro contains almost zero calories, zero fat, and zero sugars, it is perfect for dieters or women who are calorie- or carb-conscience yet want the bioactive benefits of protein to help develop and maintain lean body tissue.1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39 And Bio-Gro requires only one tiny scoop (1.5 grams) compared to a large-sized protein shake (25 grams or more), that can leave your stomach feeling full of gas and bloated. What's more, Bio-Gro is derived from a natural source and is safe for anyone to consume.

Chaos in the Gym Workout

We'’ll create some chaos with the second exercise. In Week 1, do 3-–5 partials (executing the move over just half of the range of motion) after you reach muscle failure. In Week 2, hold the peak contraction for three long seconds as you squeeze the muscle as hard as you can. During Week 3, perform drop sets, quickly reducing your working weight by about 30% when you reach muscle failure and continuing your set. In Week 4, do heavy negatives. Train with a good spotter this week, because you'’ll use about 20% more weight than you normally handle, and slowly fight the downward movement -— called the eccentric contraction -— as your partner helps you lift the weight on every rep. Also, for chest and bi'’s only, do a third exercise with straight sets.

Shock Your Chest Into Growing

Time to throw another wrench into your pec training with some new hardcore, extreme techniques, all intended to spark new muscle growth and take your chest to the next level. The following 5 chest-shocking methods have been tried many times over by expert trainers, champion bodybuilders and muscle-hungry gym rats with smashing success.

Pressing for Powerful Shoulders

Following your first big strength-pressing movement, you want to then add in some volume work for your shoulders. This is where you would use a repetition range between 8–12 reps. For instance, if you started with standing barbell presses for your strength movement, you could follow that with seated dumbbell presses for volume. You don’t need a lot of sets, but 3–4 working sets (after a couple of warmups) should really finish of your front delts and triceps. It is a good idea to keep your body guessing with different movements and different rep ranges, especially as you become more experienced with lifting.

Get on Board for a Bigger Bench

Huge overload can take place with board presses because they allow you to lift more than your one-rep max. The bench press has an ascending strength curve, meaning the closer the barbell is to lockout the more force production is possible; in other words, you are weakest at the bottom and strongest at the top.

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.

Your goal this round is to develop your explosiveness, your one punch knockout power. Every punch thrown this round should be done with maximal force.  This round punches can be thrown as single shots or in combination. The pace at which you throw will depend on your physical conditioning and size but a good pace to go at is to throw at least one punch every three seconds if you’re 160 pounds or lower and one punch every 6 seconds if you’re over 160.

Could a $17,695 Grill Change Your Life?

When Kalamazoo came to pick up the grill they had loaned me, I thought of those steaks. I wondered: “If I had to put a price on that steak-eating experience, how much is it worth?” I crunched the numbers. I factored in futures. But whatever computations I tried to rationalize, I couldn’t bring myself to a price tag that was close to $17,695. Was the grill the best I had ever used? Yes. Would I be sad that it was gone? Of course. But did I feel like the price point was part of the marketing? Like a Maserati, an Audemars Piguet, or some Agent Provocateur garb, you pay, in part, for the fantasy of luxury. Now that K750HB has moved on, I’m trying to recover from the break up. There’s a hole in my backyard. I look at grilling recipes and feel remorse. Was there anything I could have done differently? Maybe if I had a few thousand dollars things would be different. But I don’t. So I’ll fantasize.

5 Oral Sex Misconceptions Women Hate

Correction: Read Her Body Language  You’re reluctant to ask her point blank what she wants, and she’s just as unwilling to tell you what she needs. So, you need to prove every woman wrong and show her you’re paying attention by being alert to her body language. Namely, pay attention to any pressure from her hands. “If she’s holding your head, and pulling you closer, it means ‘tongue me deeper,’ Cox says. “Pushing your head away means you’re being too rough; slow everything down, relax the pressure and simply lick gently.” How to tell if you’re hitting the sweet spot? “If she’s holding you firmly but seems relaxed, you’ve got it right,” Cox adds.

Add Two Inches to Your Chest

The rate at which your muscles apply force determines the number and type
 of muscle fibers that are recruited, and recruiting them all is the path to complete growth and development. We’re prescribing speed bench presses, done with light weight for maximum velocity, to target your most explosive muscle fibers. (These also happen to be the largest.) Speed training serves another purpose too: training you to blast through sticking points in your bench press so you can lift heavier weights in subsequent workouts and therefore apply a more intense muscle- building stimulus.

Dymatize Super Mass Gainer at

Gaining size isn’t as easy for some as it is for others. For people with faster metabolisms, smaller appetites, and that are constantly on the go, it is difficult to get the added calories and protein needed for muscle growth. That’s where Dymatize's Super Mass Gainer comes in. Each serving is packed with 1280 calories, 52 grams of high-quality proteins, and 17 grams of branched-chain amino acids – which are directly involved in the building of muscle and speeding recovery. That means that you can put on the muscle and mass you want faster.*

On Trial: Barbell Squats vs. Smith Machine Squats

In 2002, the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research reported that the farther the feet are positioned in front of the Smith machine bar, the less quad involvement and the greater hamstring/glute involvement. When the feet were directly under the bar, the hamstrings and glutes received little emphasis, while the quads got almost all the focus. When the feet were about 12 inches in front, the quads and hams/glutes were fairly evenly emphasized. When the feet were placed about 18 inches in front, the hams and glutes received the greatest emphasis, with the quads getting only a little.

How To Bench Press: Layne Norton's Complete Guide -

Dr. Layne Norton is a smart guy, but he's also strong as hell! Follow his coaching tips and cues to bench press like a total beast. Get Layne's Full Program Here: The bench press is one of the most important upper-body exercises in your movement toolkit. Not only is it crucial for upper-body muscular development, but it's an exceptional strength builder. Many people think the bench press is just a chest exercise, but I'm here to tell you that your triceps, shoulders, back, and even your glutes are involved. It's a complex movement that can be disastrous if you get it wrong. If you've been doing the bench press without being too concerned about how you're doing it, it might be time for you to take a step back and focus on improving your technique. Seven years ago, I tore my right pec while bench pressing incorrectly. I'll tell you right now, it sucked. Since then, I've spent a lot of years learning how to incorporate the correct muscle groups and focus on the proper execution of the movement itself. After learning how to improve my bench mechanics, not only did the movement become safer, but my numbers got a lot better.
