Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, July 3, 2014
Friday, July 4, 2014 - You might precipitate an emotional meltdown if you try to play the role of a wise philosopher today. Assuming a spiritual position could just be another clever attempt to circumvent your feelings. Paradoxically, you will feel much better if you can get out of your head now long enough to express what's in your heart. Those around you will breathe a sigh of relief too, especially if they're tired of you pretending like everything is okay. Allowing others to see your weak spot isn't as scary as you think.

The 8 Best Things You Can Do For Your Metabolism
Metabolism is a fancy word for how your body regulates energy consumption. Someone with a higher metabolism burns more calories even at rest than someone with a lower metabolism, and can therefore get away with eating more food —even junk food. But a high metabolism isn’t a privilege reserved for a select few who were lucky enough to be born with it. You can raise yours and reap the benefits. Here are the 8 best things you can do.

10 Key Pieces You Need for Summer
While you might think that pair of jorts (that's jean + shorts, if you've been living under a rock) from 2006 look just as good now as they did then, we’re here to tell you the truth: You need to get rid them. The same goes for cargos and short-sleeved plaid shirts. (Basically, a good rule of thumb is that if it looks like something that belongs to a high school junior, it’s time for it to go.) After you've done some spring cleaning, replace everything you tossed with any or all of following pieces, perfect for the summer season. D'aww, look at you, growing up and being all fashionable and stuff. How to Dress for a First Date>>>
Six Fat-Burning Ingredients You've Never Heard Of
Trying to get all of these ingredients would be overkill and a waste of your money. Instead, look for supplements that have two or more of these ingredients along with other known, effective fat-burners like green tea extract and caffeine. Sesamin is one product you can readily find as a stand-alone, and it goes great with any multiple-ingredient fat-burner. Regardless of the product you choose, follow label instructions closely for the best and safest way to take them. Supplements with the following ingredients will get you ripped up instead of ripped off.

Dominate Your Morning Workouts
Step away from the treadmill, says Charlie Cates, a Chicago-based performance enhancement specialist. “You need something that’s going to excite your nervous system and major muscle groups.” Try burpees instead. From a standing position, squat down and touch your hands to the floor. Then shoot your legs out behind you so you end up in a pushup position. Reverse the motion quickly as you come back up. Continue for 15 seconds, rest 30 seconds, and repeat for five minutes.
Change Up Your Reps and Sets to Get Bull Strong
The second part of getting stronger is resting enough to properly recover . You’re in the gym only three days a week with this program, so some gym rats get antsy and think it’s not enough. Get that out of your head. For the entire four weeks, you’ll be lifting at 80– 100% of your one-rep max (1RM) for most lifts. This is incredibly taxing on your central nervous system, so unless you get sufcient rest, you’ll burn out early and miss your time to peak. Train smarter and get stronger.

5 Healthy Meat Marinades Every Man Should Know How to Make
It’s hard to imagine summer without the sweet aroma of barbecue sauce-smothered meat cooking on a backyard grill. While marinades definitely make protein taste great, the packaged varieties are typically void of any healthy nutrients. This summer, toss the bottled steak sauce, put on your chef hat, and mix up the homemade variety. Not only will a sauce made from scratch add flavor without excess calories or fat, but the right recipe may also cut down on the potentially cancer-causing substances that form in meat cooked over an open flame.
7 Best Bodybuilding Foods
The greatest performance diets may seem complicated and fancy, but they are all built on a foundation of basic principles and simple foods. Eat the right ones, and your body will respond accordingly. If your current regimen doesn't include the following body-builders, beeline to the grocery store and stock up on them, stat. Bonus: They're also all pretty delicious. 1. EGG WHITES Show us a bodybuilder without egg whites in his diet, and we'll show you someone who's missing out on the best protein money can buy. Paired with oatmeal, an egg-white omelet can turn your breakfast into a power meal to fuel the rest of your day. Buy It: When purchasing eggs, do the basics: Always check the date and open the carton to check for cracks. Also, be sure the eggs are refrigerated in the store and when you get home with them. Although eggs stored out of the refrigerator won't necessarily cause illness, they do lose a grade per day when not refrigerated. Prepare It: Although many gadgets promise an easy way to separate the yolk from the white, the quickest, easiest method is to simply use your own clean hands.

Fat Loss Mistakes (and How to Lose Weight For Good) - Born Fitness
Weight training is designed to provide faster results with less time in the gym. Not only do you have to work out fewer times per week (you’d be shocked what you can do in just 3-4 workouts per week) you’ll also have shorter sessions. That’s because intensity is much more important than duration for eliminating fat. So you can spend a fraction of the time in the gym and still kiss your tummy good-bye. In fact, research has shown that 8 to 12 minutes of intense intervals can burn as many calories as 25 to 30 minutes of constant moderate exertion exercise. Does that mean you only need to exercise for 8 to 12 minutes to see your abs? Unfortunately, no. But don’t be surprised when you spend less time on the cardio machines, pick up a few dumbbells, have less time in the gym and suddenly don’t even recognize your own body.

4 Rules for Making a Muscle Building Shake
Using the whole fruit is a much better option that using fruit juice. When you use just the juice you miss out on all of the phytochemicals and fiber that the flesh and skin of fruits have in them. Using just the fruit juice also can add up to a lot of calories fast, with almost all of the calories coming in the form of sugar. The only way you should use any fruit juice is to mask the greens food flavor, if necessary, or to add a big burst of nutrients. Good “juice-only” tactics would be to add an ounce of tart cherry juice concentrate or pomegranate juice. These two juices provide a ton of antioxidants with fewer calories, so they do make the grade.
10 Foods That Fight Fatigue
These ‘shrooms are a great source of the B vitamins riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and niacin, and are a good source of thiamin, vitamin B6, and a good source of folate, say Lakatos and Shames. “B Vitamins are essential for energy production. Riboflavin does several things to help our bodies produce energy. First, it’s important in aerobic energy production, while it also protects the cell’s energy production house, mitochondria, from damage,” they say. To boot, pantothenic acid fights fatigue during times of stress by supporting the adrenal glands, and niacin helps convert food into usable energy.

The The Laws of Optimizing Body Composition - Juggernaut Training Systems
Fats are important for health and proper hormonal function, as well as multiple essential body functions. Because healthy fats are so easy, tasty, and beneficial to eat, they can round off the calories of most daily diets. Thus, the recommendation for fat intake is simple: find out your daily calorie needs (approximating is just fine), subtract your protein intake and carb intake using the above recommendations, and consume the remainder of your calories from fats! This means that if you want to add muscle, feel free to consume more fat (in the form of mostly healthy sources like nuts, nut butters and healthy oils like olive oil). If fat loss is your goal, slowly cut down on fat intake before you reduce protein and carb consumption.
Why Are We Fat? - Born Fitness
That’s not to say focused behaviors that limit food options don’t work. The Paleo movement has shown there are plenty of people that can and are willing to cut out all processed foods. The low carb movement has stricken bread, pasta, rice, and all other starches from diets and people have lost weight. But these are relatively small sub-segments and inadvertently designed for people that are wired a certain way. Fitness communities love to berate “fat people” for not being able to make certain changes. Words like “lazy” or “lack of willpower” are tossed around at ease. But what if the changes that are being suggested aren’t sustainable for their lives, their habits and mindset, or even their budget?

>> Stand holding a pair of dumbbells in front of your thighs with a palms-down grip. >> With your chest up, back flat and knees slightly bent, lean forward at the waist until your torso is roughly parallel to the floor and the weights hang straight down in front of your shins. Keep your head in a neutral position and your eyes fixed on the floor in front of you. >> Inhale deeply and begin the pull. As you pull toward your upper abs, bring your elbows out and up in a wide arc, similar to how you pull a barbell using a wide grip. >> At the top of the lift, squeeze your back hard for 1-2 seconds before lowering the weights along the same path.

The Dent - Born Fitness
I talk all the time with my online clients who struggle with health and fitness about how we beat ourselves up for past failures. We are all our harshest critics. At times it’s good because it propels us forward. But there’s a line we cross where self-criticism becomes harmful. We don’t allow ourselves to see a better version because the prior mistakes cast a permanent shadow. Sometimes it progresses to the point where we are incapable of seeing our own success, but always dwell and magnify failure.

M&F Elite: Tim Howard and Everton FC's Workout
When I was 17, I started playing semi-professional football, though I still had hopes of breaking into the pro ranks. I realised one of the main things was to be the best athlete I could be, so I started looking into training methods to make myself quicker. I started athletics training at Liverpool Pembroke, picked up some good training methods,and decided to study it more deeply. I did a few courses with the British Weightlifting Association and became a S&C fitness instructor, then an Olympic weightlifting instructor. I was then able to apply the knowledge with some of the football players and athletes I was working with, and then moved into training rugby players and boxers. While playing semi-pro, I completed my football coaching badges and began coaching for Everton at their summer camps and later, at their School of Excellence. After a few years of S&C coaching experience, I went to Liverpool’s John Moores University in 1997 where I earned my degree in Sports Science and Exercise Physiology. Once qualified, I was given the opportunity to join the academy at Everton where I completed my Research Masters, using academy players as subjects After three years with the academy, David Moyes asked me to work with the first team and I am now in my tenth season at the club.

Weider Principle #22: Partial Reps
There is no Weider Full Range of Motion Principle. I just made it up. Perhaps the fact that you should strive for complete reps that go from an all-out stretch to a thorough contraction was simply too obvious for Joe Weider to codify in a tenet. It has long been an exercise fundamental— and we’re about to break it. You don’t have to go all the way. Sometimes an exercise is made more effective by using only part of its range of motion. The Weider Partial Reps Principle increases tension by decreasing movement.
