Sagittarius Horoscope for Monday, August 31, 2015

Monday, August 31, 2015 - You often gravitate toward the most outrageous projects, since you enjoy living life on the edge. But the problem is you may not always attend to all the details and sometimes they can come back to haunt you. You don't have a strong inclination to return from your current dreams yet if you're wandering through the outer limits of the universe. However, you might not have a choice if unexpected changes at work require you to be on your toes. Everyone will be extremely relieved if you take your cues from reality now; save your explorations for another day and choose the responsible path.

Build Boulder Shoulders with the Ahrens Press

Ahrens had no choice but to press the dumbbells in this style because he used special loadable dumbbells that were very long; in other words, it was impossible to press them straight because they would hit each other with the massive poundages he routinely threw overhead. Because of the lateral pressing motion, this exercise forces the medial delts or “caps” to work harder.

The Complete Calves Workout

You don’t need to spend forever training your calves—15 minutes or so three to five days a week should suffice, provided you’re lifting with focus and a purpose during that time. The one thing that should always be on your mind is range of motion. Half reps of calves are a waste of time, so go light at first if you need to. Just make sure you feel a stretch at the bottom of each rep; and at the top, get those heels up high so that you’re up on your tippy-toes. Arnold Schwarzenegger once said that he tried to reach the en pointe position of a ballerina on each and every rep of calf raises. It’s a painful position, being up that high on your toes, but that’s what you should be trying to achieve.

Making Volcano Traps Erupt

Here’s the bad news: You can’t have great traps without them. Now for the good news: They’ll give you the thickest and highest traps possible. “Deads” are the perfect trapezius exercise, because they combine all total-mass principles for this fractious bodypart: maximum poundage, full range of motion, and intense stress on the traps through all dimensions and from top to bottom. As you start the lift, you’re bent over, which pulls your traps forward and stresses them over their entire area of mass, from bottom to top and side to side. As you raise your body, the stress moves progressively downward, from the top of your traps, across your rhomboids, pulling hard at the lateral extremities. At the top, you “lock out” the lift, shrugging your shoulders up and back, which serves as a peak contraction, especially for your upper traps. As you lower the weight, the entire process is reversed, but with the same beneficial effects. You can’t ask for more. Always do deads.

9 Tricks to Look Bigger Instantly

But there are also times when you want to look bigger right now.

How to Be Hardcore

“Everybody wanna be a bodybuilder, but nobody wants to lift no HEAVY ASS WEIGHT!” One of Ronnie’s famous quotes that will live on forever and probably one of the realest things anyone has ever said about training.  Everyone talks about wanting to get bigger, get ripped, or get in shape etc. but when it comes time to put the work in, I mean REAL work, they usually fold.  You also have those individuals who THINK they train hard until they go in for a training session with Ronnie.  Even at 50 years old with two replaced hips Ronnie has made bodybuilders half his age puke in the first 20 minutes of a workout.  In his prime Ronnie retired other pros from workouts who thought they could come hang with him at Metroflex in Texas.  (We won’t mention any names but they ended up covered in bags of ice!)  There’s a reason that he trained alone most of the time… no one else could KEEP UP!

Shawn Rhoden's Back Attack

Typically, Rhoden starts his workout with barbell or T-bar rows—the sort of free-weight basics that helped his mentor (and supplement company employer) Ronnie Coleman construct arguably the best back ever unfurled. Still, unlike eight-time Mr. Olympia Coleman in his prime, this year’s Arnold Classic contender doesn’t stuf all the iron he can on the collar of a T-bar. “I typically go up to six  plates,” he says of T-bar rows. “I want to get a good range of motion, a good stretch, and then a full contraction. I don’t want to have to use momentum to get the weight up. And I don’t want to go so heavy that I can’t concentrate on my back and start using my biceps.”

Chest Workout for Monster Pecs

The key to gaining size and strength for any muscle group (not just chest) is to lift heavier weights as you go. But there’s no need to increase poundage substantially overnight; a gradual progression is your best bet to avoid overtraining and plateaus. In this routine, start your first working set of bench and incline presses with five pounds more than you did the previous week. This will keep your strength levels and muscles growing steadily.

15 Minutes to Bigger Arms

It doesn’t take long to blast your arms and spark new gun growth.

All the best mass-building moves for arms are included here—from chins to dips to close-grip bench. To maximize efficiency, set up all of the exercises/stations before you start the workout so you can transition quickly between them.

How to Get Stronger, Bigger Calves

“The most common calf training mistake I see is mindlessly going through the motions of the exercises, using excessive momentum, and bouncing at the bottom of a move,” Seedman says. To counter this, he recommends two courses of action. First, squeeze your calves maximally at the top of any movement—say, calf raises—by holding the fully contracted position for two to three seconds. This creates tension and metabolic stress in the muscle, both of which are critical for maximizing growth. Second, control the eccentric movement (the two to three second lowering phase) and hold the fully stretched position for an additional three seconds. “Not only will this break down the surrounding fascia (connective tissue that covers your muscles and hinders growth) but this technique will also produce the greatest muscular damage, which is key for triggering muscle hypertrophy,” Seedman adds.

The Food That's as Healthy as Exercise and Quitting Smoking

exercise is great for your heart  while  smoking  is... not so much. You also probably know that too much sodium is a no-go and though certain types of alcohol are good for your heart, it's only in small amounts (too much has the opposite effect.) But, the findings of this new study was news to us: Eating plenty of protein-rich foods (packed with amino acids) might be just as good as taking up running, and ditching salt, booze, and cigs.  25 Reasons Running is Better Than the Gym >>> Researchers from the University of East Anglia looked at data from TwinsUK (a database of UK adult twins), and compared the impact of seven different amino acids (found in plant and animal protein) on heart health. The people who ate the most amino acids had lower blood pressure and "arterial stiffness" (a measure of the elasticity of your arteries which, when less stiff, makes it easier for your heart to get blood pumped throughout your body.) However, more research is needed to understand exactly why amino acids have this beneficial effect.

The 10 Best Stretches For Men, According to 10 Trainers

How to do it: Lower yourself onto your knees, and use your hands to support your body weight. Lift your left knee and rest the sole of that foot on the floor, so it’s bent at a 90-degree angle and directly below your knee. Exhale, and lean forward until you feel the stretch in your upper thigh and hip flexors. Your right knee and toes should be in contact with the floor throughout the entire stretch. Use your abdominal muscles to keep your back straight and your spine supported. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds. Come back to the starting position, and complete the stretch on your right side.    What it does: “By engaging your glutes, you can stretch your psoas muscles (hip flexors), which is hugely important for people who sit most of the time or have frequent back pain,” says personal trainer, Nick Rodocoy .    When to do it: It's always best to do this stretch when your muscles are warm, like right after a workout, or when you get out of the shower.

After the samples were analyzed for how much protein was broken down, it was determined that Micellar Whey showed similar protein digestion when compared to casein for over six hours.

5 Myths about Running You Can Stop Believing

Running is one of the first movements you learn as a kid (you know, once you nail down crawling, standing, and walking). You fall into the motion pretty naturally, and then learn the basics of stretching, form, workouts, and more from gym teachers and coaches as you grow up. And for the most part, nothing's really changed since you first ran. Or so you thought. Sure, most of the recommendations we've been told have remained steadfast over the years, but there are some old beliefs that can be put to rest.

Champion Workouts & Extra Credit Training - Zach Even-Esh

I usually throw something un unrelated to the workout I did for the day, for example: After I rock my upper body with heavy pressing/benching, I’ll end the day with deadlifts for time, I usually load up the bar to about 235-255 and then go for 30 reps, keeping good form but also my eye on the clock. My best so far was 245 in 2:30. I did 255 with the trap bar after an upper body workout friday for 30 reps in 2:40. I know it probably doesnt sound like much but it’s a gasser for sure. I always feel better after doing crazy stuff like that, same with 20 rep squats. Starting this week I am mixig some HFT in with my regular routine along with some of the pyramid sets from your BWBB course. I am looking forward to your new book.
