7 Lessons on Quitting From People Who Hate to Quit

Simply working a job you hate, or continuing on a path because you 'don't want to fail' is a dangerous game. Don't forget that quitting is an option--and it can be the right thing to do. It takes as much energy to rationalize why you are doing something, as it would to fix it. Quitting does not show weakness, the inability to quit does. If you are going down the wrong road, stop, evaluate, and fix it.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Wednesday, August 5, 2015 - Suppressing a sudden rush of emotions might seem totally unnecessary to you. However, others could be overwhelmed by your energetic onslaught now if you release pent-up feelings without any self-restraint. Luckily, your uncharacteristically practical vision of the future can pull you out of a downward spiral today. Do what you do best: aim your thoughts at an impossible goal and then defy all odds by taking the high road to reach your destination.

3 Reasons Millennials Are Getting Fired

As explained here , Millennials tend to work only the minimum time expected--and will push for flexibility and a reduced work schedule to create more time for other pursuits. Being demanding about when and how they want to do their job can be viewed as disrespectful. A great way to look at how some employers feel is the way the dysfunctional phone/cable companies work. It's annoying when they announce they can come out only on a certain day. They can't tell you what time, and then they say they'll call the day of and give you a four-hour window when they'll arrive. While the phone/cable companies have us trapped, employers don't feel the same about Millennials. They'll fire the Millennial worker and find someone who can work when they need them to--and without the attitude.

Best Moves for Building Big, Nasty Traps

Take a look at any accomplished Olympic lifter and you will see the effect the clean has on the traps. The clean works the traps in a couple different ways; during the first pull you want a tight upper back. This is accomplished by squeezing your scapulae together. Scapular retraction is a great lower/mid trapezius exercise. In addition, during the second pull of the clean, a shrug motion is performed completing your full extension, working the upper part of the trapezius muscle. If cleans are not something you want to take the time to learn, start by doing high pulls.

9 Best Exercises You're Not Doing

Sometimes the best exercise is the one you’re not doing. And why, exactly, is such a great move not part of your training? Probably one of two reasons: a) you don’t know it exists, or b) it’s so challenging that you’d rather skip it and do something easier.

28 Days to Lean Meal Plan

You'’re training hard every day with your program, going heavy on the weights and sweating up a storm with cardio. Newsflash: While that'’s critical to your ultimate success, that'’s just not enough for you to lose the fat you want to.To reach your get-lean goal, you must also follow a get-lean diet. Why? Even if you work out hard for an hour every day, that still leaves 23 more hours for you to wreck all your hard work in the gym with just one slip-up: a measly handful of chips, a beer with the guys or a burger at lunch. Diet is a huge, so to speak, part of the fat-loss equation. It's the backbone of your entire plan, the foundation of a hard body.Bodybuilding nutrition consultant Jim Juge says nutrition determines your success or failure, plain and simple. "The diet is 65% of what you need to get in shape,"” he says. Juge would know, as he'’s helped countless dedicated people reach their goals, from achieving their best body ever to placing first in bodybuilding competitions.You've got 28 days to get to your goal, so we've recruited Juge to help you every step of the way. He'’s adapted a traditional bodybuilding competitor's diet for a non-competitor (that means you!) who wants to look his best, shedding as much fat as possible in a very short time.

25 Ways to Get a Ripped Summer Body

It's all here: how to set up a workout program, a diet , exercises you should do, ways to boost your intensity and metabolism, foods you must eat, and when to consume them for the best results. We've taken years of science and experimentation, culled from some of the brightest minds in the fitness game, and condensed it all into 25 ways you can get ripped to shreds. Fast.

3-Day Ab Workout for a Shredded Six-Pack

That’s it. Designing your core workouts with exercises that fit these categories is all you’ll ever need to build strong abs and an injury-resistant lower back. They can be used as a single progression—one month you could focus only on pure stabilization, work on dynamic movements the next month, and then finally do integrated stabilization exercises the month after—or as a separate focus on each of your training days. I recommend doing all core exercises, except the ones in the integrated stabilization category, first in your workouts, before you train other muscle groups.

Gain 10 Pounds of Muscle in 4 Weeks

The second half of the program is all about maximizing size with slightly higher reps and an emphasis on intensity. Rep ranges move up to 10-12 for most exercises, which is ideal for promoting muscle hypertrophy (growth). Overall volume increases slightly during these two weeks, mainly due to the addition of isolation exercises that you’ll perform before compound movements for your chest, back, shoulders and legs. Called pre-exhaustion, this technique dramatically increases workout intensity. You fatigue the main target muscle with an isolation exercise, then hit it in this fatigued state with a compound move, which if done right will lead to your main muscle failing before assistance muscles give out. (For example, for chest the dumbbell flye hits the pecs directly, so your triceps shouldn’t end up being the weak link and cause the termination of the set during the bench press).

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Bodybuilding King of Supersets!

We've included for you Schwarzenegger's chest/back and biceps/triceps superset workouts. Since we don't recommend jumping righ into these grueling routines, we suggest that you modify them by knocking three sets off each exercise to start. After two weeks, add one set to each exercise per week until you've reached Schwarzenegger's full routines. Once you've gotten to that level, stick with each program for no more than eight weeks. Then return to standard single-bodypart training for eight weeks. This way, your body won't adapt to one particular style and grow complacent. This technique, known as the Weider Muscle Confusion Training Principle, was also one of the Oak's favorites, and with his record of success to back him up, you might consider trying it as well. - FLEX

8 Weeks to TREEmendous Legs

Since many lower-body muscles span two joints, they play a role on each joint and are involved in both isolated and multi-joint movements. For example, your main quad muscle, the rectus femoris, works across the hip and knee on the front (anterior) side of your body. This partially explains that they sometimes don’t fire during certain portions of the squat movement and why some good leg extensions may help your ailing legs. Several muscles in the body need to be attacked in a few different exercises to ensure they’re completely blitzed. And this is just the beginning.

The Armed and Dangerous Workout Program

The emphasis on your arms doesn't mean you'll be taking it easy with the rest of your physique. This program ups the ante with any individual body part in terms of volume, and you won't be shortchanged with any individual muscle group as long as you're willing to put in the work. In fact, we've intentionally omitted any tricky supersets, dropsets, and rest-pause move, because you'll get plenty of that kind of action on your arm training days. for anythng else, the idea is to simpy get under the bar, bang out sets and reps for all your worth, rest for the allotted time periods, and then move on to the mext step in the program.

H.U.G.E. Superiority Complex

Well, supersetting is not the be-all and end-all of training techniques, but it’s certainly in the conversation when you’re talking about the most effective ways to increase your intensity. Supersets are simply two sets of different exercises performed one after the other without resting between the two. Officially, under the Weider Training Principles vernacular, “supersets” refers to sets done alternately for opposing muscle groups, such as triceps and biceps, and “compound sets” refers to doing two movements for the same muscle group; these days, however, “supersets” is the more commonly used term for any back-to-back exercise combo.

Secrets of a Big Back

These days, guys like to use rowing machines and dumbbells to train the back, and these are good options. But I’ll always prefer the old-fashioned bentover row because it’s a much harder exercise. When you use a barbell, you can work with heavier weights than you can with any other implement. Rowing from that bent position trains your lower back and abs at the same time, so you develop tremendous strength throughout your torso that carries over to other exercises like the deadlift and squat. The only thing holding your body up is its own muscle, not a bench or a hand or a weight machine. When my friends and I trained at Gold’s Gym and the Muscle Beach weight pit, we often made rows even more difficult. Balancing on the narrow benches forced us to keep our feet closer together, which made the lift even harder to stabilize. It also allowed us to get a better stretch in our lats as we lowered the weight between reps.

The 10 Most Nutritious Summer Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables harvested at just the right time in their peak season are more nutritionally dense because they’ve had time to mature and develop abundant nutrients. Sure, that grapefruit (a winter fruit) you eat every morning year-round tastes fine—since it was picked prematurely to ripen over the days- or week-long journey to your supermarket—but it isn’t giving your body its full potential in vitamins and nutrients. Take spinach, for example. Eating it in season provides up to three times more vitamin C than eating it out of season, according to the Cleveland Clinic .

The one food that tends to be palatable when you have a zinc deficiency is starch, partly due to the altered sense of taste that zinc causes, but also because zinc plays a key role in metabolic health. When you have low zinc, your body won’t be able to efficiently burn fat, which means it needs a constant influx of carbs to raise blood sugar to keep you going.

The Paleolithic Diet for Bodybuilders

Our ancient ancestors didn’t have access to crops, convenience stores, or fast-food restaurants. They were limited to consuming the plants and animals they could hunt or gather. This meant that the bulk of their diet consisted of large amounts of meat (when it was available), and otherwise they subsisted on plants—wild berries, certain greens, and often bugs (although bugs aren’t an emphasized part of the contemporary Paleolithic diet). What was absent from our ancestors’ diets were grains, large amounts of sugar, and processed starches.
