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.

20 Foods an Athlete Would Never Eat

Top performing athletes know that nutrition is king when it comes to gaining an edge over their competitors. However, no matter what your goal is—carving out your six-pack, increasing your stamina—the gateway to success lies on your plate. An athlete’s diet is more than just calories in and calories out—it’s fuel. The right foods increase your energy, promote muscle growth, and aid in muscle repair. The wrong ones set you back. When it comes to chowing down, there are certain eats a serious athlete just won’t touch.

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.

The Best Female Abs on Instagram

Meet 25 women on Instagram who give us serious abs-envy and inspire us to work harder on carving our own cores. We selected these fit women for their sexy midsections which take hours of dedication in the gym and in the kitchen. From Instagram celebs to superfit up-and-comers, these women (in no particular order) are bound to inspire you to go harder while whittling your waist and sculpting your six-pack.

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.

Shoulder and Back Attack

Wilmore’s back training focuses mainly on movements for thickness, since he feels he has more than enough width at this point. “Early in my training, I did plenty of chins and wide-grip lat pulldowns,” Wilmore remembers. “I still do those movements, but they take second billing to free-weight rowing exercises. The more mass and thickness you have in your back, the deeper the separation and detail once you diet down. That adds a three-dimensional quality to it.”

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.

The Jacked Back Workout

Back training is like the tax code of physique building. The methodology is as diverse as it is mystifying, and as complex as it is confounding, but in the end your goal is simple: You just want to get as much back as possible (pun intended). You experiment with new workouts and flirt with multiple angles, all with the hope of adding a little swole to your rearview. If this sounds like you, breathe deep and let this simple strategy wash over you: Pull heavy stuff. Rest. Repeat.

The Best Foods to Eat Before and After a Run

Before: It’s most beneficial to eat a full meal three or four hours before you head out to slog through many miles. But “there’s ideal, and then there’s practical,” Antonucci says. If the idea of setting your alarm for 3 AM sounds, well, insane, just have that meal an hour or two ahead of the run. But adjust the menu if breakfast gets close to the outing: Go for something easily digestible, like a banana with peanut butter and a high-calorie sports drink. “Even more important,” says Ryan, “is to have a good hydration and fueling plan for the run.” Try to take in between 150 and 300 calories per hour during extra-long bouts—with gels, sports drinks, or whatever snack that you can carry and your body can handle.

The Best Bodyweight Workout of All Time

HOW IT WORKS The circuit we’ve designed here doesn’t let up. When you train any squat variation, plus the pullup and the dip, you work nearly every muscle in your body, and your heart will race to supply them with blood and oxygen. Performing a decreasing number of reps—10 to 1—helps you keep the workout going even as you get fatigued. It'll also get you leaner, and build the endurance that'll build the fitness you need to rattle off a high number of reps in one shot. Plus: Feel free to use this workout to  win bar bets about how many pullups you can do.

The Very Best Push-Up For Pecs and Power | T Nation

In a push-up, hand release or regular, you have to lift 60-65% of your body weight. So if you're 180 pounds you're pressing between 110 and 120 pounds. This can be fairly light if you're remotely decent at any horizontal press. So if you can bench 265 pounds, then your push-up will be 45% of your max – not hard. Of course the hand release will make it a bit tougher, but it's still fairly light.

5 Fat-Fighting Strategies to Make Weight Loss More Effective

"Muscle weighs more than fat, so it’s easy to think you aren’t making head- way,” says Bauer. Instead of gauging your progress by the pound, track the size of your waist or simply look at the way your clothes are fitting. Or monitor tests of your fitness. “Track how long it takes you to run a mile or how many pushups or situps you can do,” says author and celebrity trainer Kathy Kaehler. You can also measure everything you’re eating each day and make sure the amounts of calories and fat are going down while the protein and fiber rise.

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.

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.

Many carb loaded breakfast foods clock in at thousands of calories, and there’s nothing about them that would even come close to qualifying at healthy.
