Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 - It's easier to re-evaluate your future plans than to actually motivate yourself today to make a move. However, you're willing to take a leap of faith and say yes if something sounds intriguing while the promising Venus-Jupiter conjunction shines in your 9th House of Adventure. Nevertheless, success comes at a cost now, and there still may be a few surprises along the way. The potential is great if you exercise good judgment. Managing your obligations early in the day frees you up to respond to an unexpected opportunity with open arms.

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

Welcome to the world of taking things out of context and fabricating a story that is far from reality. I am an organic farmer and I find NONE of what is said to be accurate. For the record, I don’t care if you believe in and buy organic or not, as I am not out to convince anyone. What I find distasteful is the writer’s desire to see believe things that are not so in the organic world. The first thing is regardless of what he says about GMO’s, Whenever I want to sell any grains, they are tested for GMO contamination. It is not unusual for grains to be rejected as cross contamination can occur very easily. Secondly, all products that a certified organic producer uses must conform to NOP or in the case of untested products, a list of ingredients must be submitted for their review and approval before use. What products the writer refers to he doesn’t say so I would be hesitant to believe that he knows what he is talking about. All certified producers are certified by a certifying agency that inspects all records of inputs, outside purchases, and can track the product from emergence to end use.

With Friends Like These...

Once you’re at the gym, try not to converse with others. Don’t be rude, but let your body language tell them you mean business. I would create a barrier between myself and other trainers when at the gym. Between sets, I would focus on the floor rather than peer around the room. Making eye contact with someone is the surest way to invite him to begin a conversation with you. Once your workout is complete, there’s plenty of time to talk, but for the hour or so you’re in the gym, those more talkative types will have to excuse you for wanting to train muscles other than your jaw.

The 6-Week Fat Blast Workout Routine

Losing fat and taking your body fat percent down is not as easy task. You’re going to need a great support team to help you stay on track. Make sure to get enough quality sleep per night to ensure you can recovery well in between workouts – shoot for 7-9 hours per night. Drink plenty of water spaced throughout the day and prepare healthy snacks just incase you’re out and get hungry. Remember, diet plays more of a role in fat loss than high intensity workouts. I’ll end by rephrasing a quote I read from fitness great Adam Bornstein: “Eat for the body you want, not for the body you currently have.”

Eat This, Not That for Abs | Eat This Not That

Thanks to the popularity of low-carb diets, white potatoes have been unfairly blacklisted as nutritional no-nos. The truth? They’re actually powerful hunger tamers that can help you slim down. Potatoes are not only more filling than dietary demons like doughnuts and cake, but also more satiating than healthy eats like brown rice and oatmeal, an Australian study found. The more satisfied you feel, the less apt you are to graze throughout the day and take in excess calories. But not all varieties of potatoes are created equal. While a baked potato sprinkled with olive oil and spices is an “Eat This” we can get behind, French fries are a definite “Not That!” Besides being high in artery-clogging fat, they’re addictive. In fact, one study found that French fries ranked among the top foods most associated with problematic, addictive-like eating behaviors—meaning people can’t simply eat and few and then cut themselves off. Steer clear to slim down.

The 15 Most Important Exercises For Men

Every guy who’s into fitness has some methodology, piece of equipment, or program they like over anything else. Some like to circuit train every day, some follow bodybuilding protocols, and still others participate in any number of fitness trends and fads. However, there is a list of exercises that has withstood the test of time, and these moves have become staples in every serious lifter’s plan.

4 Apartment Workouts To Burn Fat Insanely Fast

From Tabata to supersets, these under-an-hour routines will whip you into shape—no matter how much space you have.

Quick Workouts for Maximum Muscle

Let’s just say that time is limited, and that you could only afford a maximum of 2 lifting sessions a week. The main goal is to maintain what you have done for the last few months, expecting more free time to come soon. I would suggest a general workout twice a week, but it does not imply that you should slack off in those sessions. Circuits, giant sets and drop sets , could all be used to maximize the training effect.

5 Dishes Loaded With Fat Burning Foods

The fastest way to lose fat is to adjust your diet, not do more cardio. And that doesn’t mean cutting carbs and calories to the bone; you can let your food burn fat for you while enjoying delicious, gourmet meals with these recipes—made from ingredients that offer potent, and science-backed, fat-burning benefits. We’ve got one to cover every meal of your day, from breakfast through dessert, so you can melt blubber over a 24-hour period (and wake up a little leaner the next morning). Now, doesn’t that beat another spin on the treadmill?

10 Foam Roller Moves for Your Entire Body

Lie down with your back on the floor. Place a foam roller underneath your upper back and cross your arms in front of you, protracting your shoulder blades. Raise your hips off of the ground, placing your weight onto the roller. Shift your weight to one side, rolling the upper to mid back. Alternate sides. 

Health Benefits of Cutting Back on Simple Carbohydrates | Eat This Not That

Reducing your intake of calorie-dense carbs automatically reduces the amount of calories you’re consuming on a daily basis, which forces your body to burn fat from your frame for energy, rather than the sugars it takes from carbohydrates. But that’s only one of the ways this dietary change leads to weight loss. Simple, refined carbs are the perfect hunger-stoking storm: they’re high in calories, low in fiber, lacking in protein and free of satiating fats. All these factors add up to a sluggish, hungrier you — who’s more likely to dive into the snack drawer.

Build Your Chest with Functional Training

Check your ego. With this workout, the idea is to make every rep better than the last and to feel your muscles working as hard as possible. Using sufficient weight is important, but don’t compromise when it comes to form and technique.

8 Game Changing Protein Powder Hacks

Portable protein powder is part of the everyday routine for those of us who are serious about maximizing the benefits of our workouts. But it seems like no one’s really mastered the most convenient way to get that post-lift protein fix. No shaker cup is perfect… there are a few annoying protein powder hassles that we all know and hate - the lazy volcano water fountain that won’t let you fill the shaker all the way, the protein chunks cemented in the creases of your cup. So let’s fix that BS. Your shake should feel like a reward, not a pain-in-the-ass.

7 Advantages of Dumbbell Training

Let’s lose the mindset of waving around three-pound dumbbells, shaking your keister to some dance music and calling that serious training. Dumbbell training has many advantages over barbell training. The great Benjamin Franklin, in letters to his son, wrote that, “I live temperately, drink no wine, and use daily the exercise of the dumbbell.” Serious strength and mass goals can be achieved by training with dumbbells. I will even say that to fully maximize strength and hypertrophy , dumbbell training must play at least a partial role in one’s training regimen. Let’s take a look at seven advantages dumbbells have over the almighty barbell.

Is it possible to become "immune" to lifting? Yes, but you can fix it. Here's how: …

Carbs to Muscle

Eating multiple daily meals leads to greater glycogen storage with less fat storage. For example, if you eat 450 grams (g) of carbohydrates daily divided among three meals, your body will digest those carbs in 150 g increments. Some will head toward muscles to make muscle glycogen, and some will be stored as fat. Splitting the same daily amount evenly among six meals (75 g per meal) will take away from their ability to uptick fat storage, leaving more for muscle glycogen. The result of splitting the same number of carbs among six meals a day is greater glycogen storage for better growth and fewer carbs stored as bodyfat.

9 Ways to Lift Like a Strongman

The lifts performed by the world's strongest men are demanding full-body movements that — when executed over a period of time — can result in a dramatic increase in overall strength , not to mention a crushing grip and a high anaerobic capacity. Even if you're not training for an actual strongman competition (which we assume most of you aren't), occasionally working such lifts into your routine will add another dimension to your training and help you build more muscle . Only one problem: Where are the enormous tires, Atlas stones and harness-rigged semitrucks when you need them? Safe to say, your gym doesn't supply such training devices. No worries, because you can mimic these lifts with nothing more than the barbells, dumbbells and benches at your local gym. To help modify the tire flip, truck pull, Hercules hold and a number of other traditional strongman events, we sought advice from Mark Philippi, renowned American strongman competitor, trainer, and owner and director of Philippi Sports Institute (Las Vegas). Philippi incorporates many of the strongman lifts into his training using traditional exercise equipment.

The Anti-Cardio Weight Loss Workout

Conventional wisdom says you have to run, cycle, elliptic-le, or do some other highly aerobic activity if your aim is to burn calories and lose weight. So here’s some great news for anyone who dreads those long slogs: Conventional wisdom isn’t always so wise. While cardio sessions do burn calories (and of course have great benefits for your heart and lungs), they don’t do much to boost your metabolism over the long haul—you basically burn only the finite number of calories during your time on the road or machine. With a smartly designed weight-training circuit, however, you’ll set yourself up for some massive fat-melting “afterburn,” while elevating your heart rate, building muscle, and (most definitely) breaking a sweat.

Get That: The Abdominal V

We've asked founder of TRyMFitness and training correspondent to HUMANFITPROJECT ,  Tim McComsey, NASM-CPT for a write-up and demo of a two-day per week routine to land those lower abdominal and oblique cuts that some women (we asked them) like to refer to as "sex lines."

Armed For Battle

“It’s weird to think that,” says McGrath, “because I’m just a normal dude who likes to train. I think a big part of what drew people was the story that went along with each photo. People related to the stuff I wrote, whether it was having problems with a woman, having no money, or being injured.” Everyone’s had those kind of problems, but most guys don’t talk about them. The average bodybuilding video or advertisement depicts a top pro busting his butt in the gym, then cruising around for 24-year-olds in some luxury ride. “There was a time I was poor,” McGrath recalls. “I’ve worked out having to wear the same clothes for days in a row. I remember getting ready for a show, and I had to drink protein powder all day long because I couldn’t afford food. Maybe people read about that, see the images, and think, ‘Hey, he did it, why can’t I?’ ”

The Bodyweight Workout That Builds Strong Legs

Leg training is often associated with heavy barbell squats and leg presses stacked the brim with plates. Yes, that’s one way to train legs, but there's another way to work your lower body that’s sure to transfer into athleticism: bodyweight exercises.

When it Pays to Lie

Men who win multiple Mr. Olympia titles often make a lift their own. For Dorian Yates, it was underhand barbell rows. With his parking-lot lunges, Ronnie Coleman has turned an activity previously associated with aerobicizing into a supreme test of strength and endurance. Arnold actually popularized more than one lift, including the press named after him, but lying side laterals is the only one to fall into obscurity, and for no reason other than indolence. You don’t need a parking lot or a barbell loaded with plates. You can do them in most gyms, even most home gyms. What’s more, they stress side deltoids in a manner no other lift can. It’s time to resurrect the lying side lateral.

6 Great Shoulder Savers

Take a lacrosse or tennis ball and position it between a wall and the back of your shoulder blade. From there, move. Keep the arm straight and it over your head (flexion), down (extension), towards the midline of the body (adduction), and out towards the wall (abduction). Fix the ball in place and see what kind of pain free range of motion you can muster. Get creative. You can even form a 90-degree angle in your elbow and internally and externally rotate the shoulder. After moving the joint through every manageable position, move the ball slightly and try it again. Search for hot spots, “floss” the areas that don’t feel great and get ready to feel and move better.

The 20 Fittest Foods

We not only tell you which foods made the list, but how much of each you should eat on a weekly basis. So read on to see how you can make your diet more fit.

More Muscle in Less Time

In the dawn of the New Year, you’ve probably got your hands full realizing lots of  resolutions.  And while one of them may be to get in better shape, that doesn’t necessarily mean spending more time in the gym. If you’re busy and stressed and need all the free time you can get, or you’re just trying to establish the habit of working out and are tired of committing to a full gym schedule, this is the routine for you. It needs to be done only twice a week, and can be completed in well under an hour. As you’ll soon find out, that’s plenty of time to change your body.

Vince McMahon's Back to Business Workout

“On the bent-over row he can do 315 for 10 reps,” says Mike Monteforte, McMahon’s trainer and workout partner. “He has unbelievable strength in his back.” After completing a body part, the two
 will then do a CrossFit-inspired workout consisting of battling rope slams, sled drags, sledgehammer swings (with a hammer named Big Jack, an allusion to the AC/DC song), and sprints. After that—yes, there’s more!—he does a circuit of ab exercises. The whole training session takes 90 minutes.

6 Illegal Exercises at the Squat Rack Station

Power racks, or squat racks, play an important role for strength and power training. But in gyms and training rooms across the country, novice patrons commonly crowd the space doing pointless or even dangerous exercises that interrupt other gym-goers' workouts. We've asked Men's Fitness and Muscle & Fitness advisory board member and owner of Total Performance Sports , C.J., Murphy MFS, C-ISSN, for his list of illegal exercises to do at a power rack station -- whether they're pointless to do or just annoying for others.

Perfect Peaks in 3 Bicep-Blasting Moves

Full range of motion for full development is a good guideline but like most rules, there are some exceptions. In this case, the partials are used to overload specific ranges of motions for strength building, allowing the biceps to handle very heavy weight at peak contraction. Keep in mind you need to start from a full hang and end in the starting position. Barring injury, keep the supinated (underhand) grip for the greatest bicep overload.
