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.

10 Training Tips for Gaining Lean Muscle

Hitting the gym twice a week is fine if you want to maintain the muscle you already have, but if you are shooting to add some size you should consider increasing your training frequency to 4-5 times per week. Even though these sessions may need to be a bit shorter to allow for recovery , the increased exposure to a training stimulus can be helpful in packing on mass .

Training Problems Solved | Iconic Trainer Charles Glass Answers Questions

As I am a natural bodybuilder, I believe I am probably at my full potential as far as gaining any more muscle size. I was measured for a suit and shirt today, and my measurements were: neck 19", chest 50", arms 17½" and a 38-inch waist. If I do gain any more muscle size that’s fine, but what I really am looking for now is to get the muscles to stand out and be more defined. I know this has a lot to do with diet, but is there a good workout or set and rep system I should be following? Or perhaps I should do more supersets, tri-sets and drop sets? I already include these methods in my training, but I could do more if you think it would help with definition. Is there anything else that you can recommend? Thanks very much for your time.

Top 10 Squat Mistakes

But with any complex exercise, there’s a lot of room for error and the squat is no exception. Here are the top 10 mistakes people make with squatting, why they’re bad and exactly what you need to do to avoid them.

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.

10 Rules to Eating for Mass

However, although there may not be any secrets to eating for size, there are rules — 10, to be exact. Know and live by these rules and you will gain the mass you want. And when we say live by them we mean live by them. Bodybuilding, after all, is a life- style, not a part-time hobby. You shouldn’t expect to grow following a diet only some of the time, any more than if you hit the weights only some of the time. It’s about a commitment to the body- building lifestyle that counts, which means 24/7/365 focus, discipline and drive. Remember: every time you eat a meal, you are bodybuilding. So, eat well and eat often.

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.”

6 Reasons Why You’re Not Seeing Results

Have you exhausted numerous diets and workouts and still feel like you're failing to get the results you want? You may have achieved short-term goals, but have been unable to sustain your gains over the long haul. The truth is, you’re not alone. Most individuals stumble a few times before they find their training groove.

5 Worst Foods You Can Eat Before Bedtime

Avoid late-night dietary disasters that can ruin your physique and even your sleep. Here are the 5 worst offenders, and 5 great alternatives for when you've got the munchies.


The simplest way to train the eccentric motion of the squat is by controlling the down motion and taking a longer time to go into the squat than to come back up. An example is a 4-second down motion (called tempo), followed by a 1-second up motion. Novices should try a 6 to 8-second eccentric tempo with a 1-second concentric phase. If you are an advanced trainees, try heavy eccentrics in which you train a supramaximal load for the down motion by using eccentric hooks or a power rack.

H.U.G.E. Gym Class: Power Up

You snort an ammonia capsule, cringing at the synapse stinging; you clap your chalked palms, forming a storm cloud; your buddy swats your back, hard, and again, harder; you shout, loud, and again, louder; you stomp to the bar loaded with more than you’ve ever moved before; and. . . . Almost every bodybuilder has a powerlifting fantasy. After all, most of us don’t want to just look strong. We want it all. That’s why this month’s lesson is all about upping your numbers in the three powerlifts — bench press, squat and deadlift — as we break down the top five power-training blunders.

The Best 45-minute Leg Workout

Body part-specific routines are great for guys with specific strength- and muscle-building goals. When it comes to how long you should dedicate to each body part, 45 minutes may be the ticket. That's because research shows your body goes in to a "building state" after a 40-45 minute session. Check out the best 45-minute chest workout here.  But any fit guy knows you can't neglect your legs. Engineers will tell you that the strength of a structure lies in its foundation. Therefore, the same conformity should be applied to the human body. A weak or undeveloped lower body will not be able to provide you with the strength and durability you need to lead a productive lifestyle. For this reason, I have compiled a series of exercises that will not only fortify your gluteus, quads, hamstrings and calves, but also solidify your foundation for many years to come.

6 Alternative Protein Recipes for Packing on More Muscle

Your protein palate shouldn't be limited to chicken and beef. Pork, bison -- and even ostrich -- are all lean sources of muscle-building protein, loaded with nutrients you might not be getting. Check out the two healthy ways to prepare each meat.

Women: Building Beautiful Shoulders

There are many muscles that originate or insert into the shoulder joint, and for well balanced shoulders each must be developed to some degree, but the most important muscle to concentrate on as far as AESTHETICS is the DELTOID, the most superficial of the muscles encompassing the shoulder. To build beautiful shoulders, you have to target each “section” or “head” of the multipennate deltoid muscle:

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.

Where to get extra calories: If you're not drinking a protein shake—start now. That's about 100-120 calories per scoop with 20-30 grams of protein. Then, you need nuts in your life. All different kinds. Peanuts, almonds, walnuts—they all are incredibly calorie-dense and easy to put down. Think about this: If you add two peanut butter sandwiches into your diet, you've just added 1,000 calories. Yes, 1,000 calories. A couple of rules—don't work out on an empty stomach, and don't forget to eat after a workout.

Nitric Oxide (NO) is one of the most powerful muscle building compounds in the human body, so it’s no surprise that countless products claim to be able to offer increased levels.
