Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, August 12, 2016

Friday, August 12, 2016 - You might consciously decide to maintain a serious attitude today while the Moon is constrained by somber Saturn in your sign. However, you can't seem to make the ripples of excitement disappear as bountiful Jupiter connects with electrifying Uranus. Unfortunately, you may already be overloaded with work and it's not a good idea to voluntarily add anything else to the pile. Nevertheless, you're driven to capture the elusive thrill before the lightning show ends. Staying calm in the midst of a creative storm is your key to receiving the gift of cosmic awareness.

Extreme Eats

One of the biggest mistakes a bodybuilder who wants massive muscles can make is to ignore this fact in favor of narrowly focusing on protein quality at the neglect of what I call “meal cadence.” This term refers to the rhythmic frequency of meals throughout the day needed to build muscle. Poor meal cadence means having long stretches of little or no food intake and then trying to make up for it by shoving down extra food. As I always say, you should eat because it is feeding time, not because you are starving. If you’re starving, you’ll stuff. Proper eating for big muscle building requires that the metabolism is calm, relaxed, and taken care of. This is achieved by dividing meals into many smaller portions separated by no more than a couple of hours, as opposed to one or two large meals separated by more than three hours. To be more precise, having four to as many as 10 small meals each day is far more effective for building lean muscle than taking in the same exact calories and food content but divided over only one to three meals each day.

Hany Rambod's Tips to Supp Like a Pro

My clients take a fat burner supplement with 16 ounces of water 15–20 minutes before cardio. The fat burner consists of caffeine to help with energy, one or two pepper extracts to increase core temperature, and an appetite suppressant. If you’re sensitive to stimulants, L-carnitine is a nonstimulant fat burner. Add 2 grams to increase effectiveness.

SciVation Xtend at Best Prices for Xtend

I basically live off of this stuff. For my intermittent fasting schedule, this stuff is essential. I usually workout at 5am, and don't eat any calories/macros until 12pm. In order to ensure I've got available aminos to recover and build muscle during my fasted period, I take 10g Xtend BCAAs every 2 hours post workout (30g per day). It mixes well and tastes great. One of my MUST HAVE products!

The Three Types Of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Movies

The next several films in this category were bad outings for Johnson. “Doom,” in which he plays a main character that I never ended up learning the name of, is easily the second-worst movie he has ever been in. On that note, “Be Cool” is the worst. Don’t get me wrong. “Be Cool” is a massive milestone for Johnson — it’s the very first film in which he acquits himself as an actor, one who can do comedy and not merely muscle — but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s an awful movie.

6 Moves for Sick Lats

Pullups are not easy – the mechanical advantage is poor even in when you are in good position. Cheating them, while a fair thing to do on the last rep or two of each set, will not improve your long-term strength or size. Since the lats are a large muscle group that needs to be hit from different angles, you need to use a full range of motion across a variety of exercises. Pullups also require the contribution of dozens of smaller, contributing muscles which is good news – it means that consistent training will lead to rapid strength gains in the short term and more total muscle gains down the road.

10 Best Shoulder Exercises

Not all rankings are created equal. In sports, for instance, lists of “the best” are about as meaningless as they are pervasive. Best player of all time, best teams, best games, best catches, best Twitter rant … they’ve all been done before in magazine pages, argued by blowhards filling airtime on radio and TV and plastered across the Internet as click bait. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? In the end, it really doesn’t matter at all, does it? Think of it this way: Determining that Michael Jordan is better than LeBron James or that the 1927 New York Yankees were better than the 1998 Yankees, who were better than the 1939 Yankees — we know, we know, damn friggin’ Yankees — isn’t going to improve your life. At most, it may earn you a free beer from a buddy in a drunken bar bet. See Also 10 Best Biceps Exercises Not all such lists, however, are totally devoid of worth. Take the one you’re about to read, counting down the 10 best weight-training exercises to develop your shoulders.

The Top 30 Muscle-Building Foods

Eggs have been vilified for years as artery-clogging foods. But further research into the role of dietary cholesterol and heart disease shows that for most people, the two are not linked. Eggs have since returned to the spotlight as a health food, especially for building serious muscle. The cholesterol found in eggs yolks serves at the scaffolding for steroid hormones, and the ½ a gram of leucine in each egg is like throwing gasoline on your muscle-building fire.

Get Big On a Budget

Unless you have a cow you can milk or a pig you can butcher in your backyard, then you are, like us, at the mercy of the rising costs of bodybuilding staples. The harsh reality is that a trip to the supermarket can be a pricey outing, especially when loading your grocery cart with pounds of animal in pursuit of gaining mass like a pro. Before you decide to make tofu your go-to protein on the grill and ramen noodles a lunch staple, there’s a way you can still embrace your inner carnivore while keeping your grocery bill under control. How?  By moving away from expensive proteins and turning instead to more budget-friendly ones. Here’s how to stretch your grocery dollar so you can get all the protein you can stomach without breaking the bank.

Top 5 Chests of the 1970's

1. FRANCO COLUMBU : The most remarkable thing about Columbu’s pecs was the cleft between the upper and lower sections, which made it seem as if his outrageously developed upper pecs were completely different muscles (they’re not). The second most remarkable thing was their dimensions from side to side and top to bottom. The Sardinian stood only 5'5", but his pecs would’ve been at home on 6'5" Ferrigno. The breadth of Columbu’s pecs was a genetic gift aided by his wide clavicles, but their thickness came from thousands of sets on flat and incline benches. At under 200 pounds, the former powerlifter and two-time Mr. O (1976, 1981) bench pressed 525, and his frequent chest workouts emphasized the barbell basics. He credits barbell bench presses and barbell incline presses for building what may have been the best chest ever.

Human Growth Hormone: Everything You Need to Know About HGH

The body naturally produces growth hormone (HGH or simply GH) in the pituitary gland, and, as its name implies, it is responsible for cell growth and regeneration. Increasing muscle mass and bone density are impossible without GH, but it also plays a major role in maintaining the health of all human tissue, including that of the brain and other vital organs. When secreted, GH remains active in the bloodstream for only a few minutes, but this is enough time for the liver to convert it into growth factors, the most crucial of which is insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF-1, which boasts a host of anabolic properties. Scientists began to harvest GH from the pituitary glands of cadavers in the 1950s, but didn’t synthesize the first HGH in laboratories until 1981, with its use as a performance-enhancing drug becoming popular shortly thereafter.

Tip: The Training Method That Improves Everything | T Nation

Loaded carries make the body work in a way that's not found in any other exercise: they combine a strong need to stabilize the trunk, dynamic movement, isometric tension in key muscles, as well as the need to fight "micro-oscillation," a minuscule but constant change in position that forces the body to recruit muscles to stabilize the load.

7 Exercises to Blow Up Your Arms

Sasan Heirati is looking to make a huge impression in the IFBB pro ranks, and one thing is certain—Heirati is unlikely to be let down by his arms. At 22 and 21 inches (the right one is slightly bigger than the left), they’re not lacking size, but, as always with Heirati, it’s about the quality rather than just mass. However, he wasn’t born with impressive pipes. “When I started bodybuilding at 14, I didn’t have good arms, but they grew quickly,” he says.

How to Train for a Marathon Without Losing Muscle

It's traditionally been thought marathoners can't have muscle. The two are mutually exclusive. Because surely someone logging dozens of miles each week can't break free from the gawky, sinewed body of a long-distance runner. And the same goes for muscleheads who want to try their hand at endurance racing: You can't transition into the sport without losing your mass. Or can you?

9 Best Bodyweight Moves For Colossal Arms

Want huge, ripped arms? Toss aside those weights and get back to basics with a bodyweight-only workout. Without all those heavy weights, you’ll give your body and joints a much-needed break.  By  altering your body angle and position and getting creative with the right tools at your gym, you can still get the necessary stimulus  for real growth in your biceps , triceps, shoulders, and forearms.

The Massive Muscle Bulk-Up: How to Gain 5 Pounds in 5 Weeks

"In short, it's the intensity and volume of your workouts, how often you’re training, how many sets you’re doing, in total, per body part, and whether you're getting sufficient protein quality and quantity," says Arent. We'll go into the nutrition specifics in a bit; but if you’re aiming for at least a gram of protein per pound of body weight, that’s a good place to start. Though, Arent notes, recent research says a little more protein might even be better. Rest and recovery is also a huge component. Give your muscles time to repair and give them the nutrients necessary to do that. Protein gives your body amino acids that repair, build, and maintain muscle; and carbs replenish your energy stores and get you ready for the next intense workout.

Ask Men’s Fitness: Is It Better to Do Full-Body Workouts or Body-Part Focused Routines?

Better for Building Mass "If you’re looking to build mass, I really see little benefit to constantly doing full-body workouts," Arent says. "Not to say it couldn’t work, but in terms of the volume you can accomplish and the ability to focus on certain muscle groups, I tend to prefer upper-lower body part splits." The upside is these focused workouts let you rotate your heavy versus light days more consistently; you don't want every day to be heavy and/or hard. That’s important for progression and it’s part of the periodization model .

Best Post-Workout Foods

Rule of thumb “It all comes down to the carbohydrates and protein,” sums up Villacorta. “They’re the two key things your body needs—and right after you work out is when your blood circulates best.” If you’re main goal is to build muscle, eat at least 30 grams of protein and 30 to 35 grams of carbs within 15 minutes of your workout. If you’re just trying to stay in shape or shed a few pounds, you can take your time and eat within 45 minutes or an hour after your workout.
