Sagittarius Horoscope for Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - You may feel an irrepressible urge to socialize with your friends today, partly because you're afraid you will miss out on the action. Although the idea of playing hooky is quite tempting, you can't just take the day off because it suits your fancy. Lucky Jupiter encourages you to believe that everything will work out fine, no matter what. But bailing on a commitment is not the right thing to do. Don't let blind optimism talk you out of being responsible. The choice is all yours, along with the consequences.

6 Perfect Post-Workout Meals

Eating quality food post-workout is crucial…you know, if you expect to make gains and stuff. The science on recovery is a little War-and-Peace-y in its complexity but you can boil it down to a few nutritional musts: in order to optimize your results, you need to replace the amino acids and glycogen lost during your workout.

60 Day Revolution: The Workout Plan

There are a wide variety of sets and reps used for each phase of the 60 Day Revolution. On Upper Body Day, there are different set and rep schemes for each triset. Refer to the chart below during each week of the program. All sets and reps are expressed as sets x reps. For instance, on Week 1 (Intro) on Triset # 1, you’ll do 3 x 10, or 3 sets of 10 reps. In Week 8 (Shock) on the same triset, you’ll do 7-10 sets of one rep. Use the heaviest weights you can manage with good form during all weeks, except for Week 7; this is a DELOAD and meant as a break before you hit Week 8, the SHOCK phase where you’ll use the heaviest possible weights that you can lift.

The Ultimate Musclebuilding Stack

After pouring your sweat and energy into the gym, you’re still not seeing any hard-earned results. What you could be lacking is a strategic supplement plan, one that works synergistically to produce greater muscle gains. It’s a reason as to why MuscleTech developed a supp stack called the “Trilogy.” The “Trilogy” contains supps—Clear Muscle, Phospha Muscle, and Plasma Muscle—that work to activate the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway via various mechanisms. The mTOR pathway governs muscle protein synthesis.

Lou Ferrigno's Tips for a Hulking Back

While thickness of the erector spinae muscles are key to a powerful back, it's the development of the lats and all the smaller muscles that add immeasureably to the detail and awe-inspiring sight of a fully-developed back. And in order to achieve that detail, you need proper form. Too often, builders focus on power when building a muscle like those in the back. That's a shame, because all that pain—and maybe even injury—is for nothing. When power wins over form, you'll be disappointed with your results.

Roelly Winklaar's Six Favorite Shoulder Exercises

“Believe it or not, this is one of the exercises I see people doing incorrectly in almost any gym I visit,” Winklaar says. “I see guys circling their shoulders at the top, which is an injury waiting to happen.” Some people include these on back day, but Winklaar doesn’t think he can hit them as hard once he’s completed a heavy back workout that includes a killer set of deadlifts, so he adds them to his shoulder day. “There’s no better way to directly hit the traps than with shrugs,” he says. He alternates between barbell and dumbbell shrugs, noting that each has its benefits.

9 Amazing Uses for Aspirin

When we found out that aspirin might help slow the growth of cancer , we got to thinking: What else is the anti-inflammatory good for? Turns out, a lot.

How Many Times Per Week Should You Train?

In a University of Rio de Janeiro study, subjects were divided into three groups to train with a different weekly frequency: twice per week (Tues., Thurs.); three times per week (Mon., Wed., Fri.); or four times per week (Tues., Wed., Thurs., Fri.). Each group used the same full-body routine each workout. Strength improvements for bench press, lat pulldown, and leg press were measured at four and eight months.

8 Things You Should Never Do On Triceps Day -

Good, but like so many 'commandment' type things, there are often exceptions to the rules. I've found that while obviously you want to limit lock-out, on my very last set for tris, usually something like a rope press-down, that locking out and holding it at full-extension really builds a pump. Granted, this is on a single-joint exercise so not a lot of weight is used, and its not done for the entire exercise, just if you do say a 3 set of 10 on press-downs, after the final set, drop the weight like 20% then do your final ones with lockouts flexing your tri as much as possible and holding for 5-10 seconds. I feel it more in my middle-tri than if I don't go to full lock-out. I can't imagine it does that much 'damage' to the joint, since people often do bench-press with hundreds of pounds with the arm locked-out...

Ronnie Coleman - No Regrets

“Getting in my last workout before my surgery tomorrow. Never take life for granted, Never. Training is my life, my hobby, it's who I am, and it represents me. If this was my last workout and I'm never ever able to train again because God called me home, I can say my life was fulfilled because I did it doing what I always love doing the most, Training. Thanks to all people in the world all over the world who wished me luck for tomorrow especially my frat brothers current Mr. Olympia @philheath and current 212 Mr. Olympia Flex Lewis. The way I see it, I went to war all eight of those years I won those Olympia's. These surgeries are just proof of the war wounds I suffered so it's all good because I'm still alive. @rcssdirector once told me one day because I was in so much pain that I needed to slow my ass down and see a Dr. I replied to him that I was gonna roll with this pain until the wheels roll off and that's exactly what I did, made all my appearances until there was absolutely no cartilage left in my hips, and when it was impossible to walk I grabbed some sticks and on long distances I grabbed me a chair.

Ronnie Coleman vs. Jay Cutler

Ronnie Coleman and Jay Cutler's epic battles established their rivalry as the greatest of the past generation. But just because these two legends share 12 Sandows between them doesn't mean they shared the same training philosophies. Here we break down the differences (and similarities) of their training methods.

8 Amazing Fat-Burning Intervals

By incorporating intense periods of work with short recovery segments, interval training helps you give maximum intensity while still maintaining your exercise form. The magic of high intensity interval training (or HIIT, for short) is that it keeps your body burning fat even after you leave the gym. During a HIIT workout, your body can't shuttle enough oxygen to your muscles during periods of hard work. Therefore, your muscles accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result: Your metabolism is revved for hours after you leave the gym. Trainers refer to this phenomena as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC. The biggest way to use it to your advantage is to regularly work short, intense bouts of exercise into your workout regimen.

7 Best Bodybuilding Foods

The greatest performance diets may seem complicated and fancy, but they are all built on a foundation of basic principles and simple foods. Eat the right ones, and your body will respond accordingly. If your current regimen doesn't include the following body-builders, beeline to the grocery store and stock up on them, stat. Bonus: They're also all pretty delicious. 1. EGG WHITES Show us a bodybuilder without egg whites in his diet, and we'll show you someone who's missing out on the best protein money can buy. Paired with oatmeal, an egg-white omelet can turn your breakfast into a power meal to fuel the rest of your day. Buy It: When purchasing eggs, do the basics: Always check the date and open the carton to check for cracks. Also, be sure the eggs are refrigerated in the store and when you get home with them. Although eggs stored out of the refrigerator won't necessarily cause illness, they do lose a grade per day when not refrigerated. Prepare It: Although many gadgets promise an easy way to separate the yolk from the white, the quickest, easiest method is to simply use your own clean hands.

The Perfect Number of Sets for Weight Lifting

For six months, Brazilian Navy cadets took a break from regular boot camp workouts to conduct a weight-training experiment, doing either one, three, or five sets per exercise, and tracking strength gains. Result: The five-setters earned significantly more muscle mass than the other two groups, and upped their five-rep max more as well, The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research reports. The findings back the “five sets/five reps” model that trainer Don Saladino, co-owner of NYC’s Drive495 gym, uses for big lifts like the bench press and squat. But for unilateral movements like side lunges and one-legged squats, do just two to three sets, to promote athleticism, he says: “You aren’t doing it to build muscle mass.”

3 Ways To Avoid Low T

When discussing parameters of training, testosterone always reigns supreme. Let’s face it, unless you have ideal hormonal optimization, you just may not get there to maximize strength and size. As strength enthusiasts, testosterone is the main player for packing on muscle and staying lean. Although we constantly talk about the strategies to maintain and even increase testosterone levels, what happens when you exhibit low testosterone levels? How does the body respond? What are some signs and symptoms of lower levels? Let’s discuss.

I’m not a sleepwalker. I don’t stand up at night and start walking around the house or anything like that, but I do work out while I sleep at night.

The Fat Guy’s Guide to Losing Weight

It’s not enough to say, “I want to lose weight.” Not-so-newsflash: The majority of Americans (69%) are overweight and more than a third are obese—a lot of those folks no doubt profess a desire to drop a few, too. Need a nudge? “You can gain an inch of penis length for every 10 pounds you lose,” says Rovenia “Dr. Ro” Brock , Ph.D., MS, RD. OK, not really, but as the gut shrinks, the prominence of the member grows. Seriously, though: You need to find your own “come to Jesus” moment for weight-loss motivation, whether it’s some scary health test results, a frustration with huffing and puffing at the top of every flight of stairs, or a vanity-driven desire to get back to your college weight. Whatever it is, it needs to be for you .

7 Winning Strategies for Growth

Backstage after bodybuilding contests, some competitors from second to last have ready excuses for their performances. These range from illness and injury to incompetent judges to “a freak of nature” victor — any of which may or may not be true. Meanwhile, some accept all blame for their fate — whether or not they deserve it — and are already strategizing what they’ll do different next time. Invariably, the latter make the greatest improvements, while those who always have an excuse for losing almost always have cause to use it.You can either be reactive or proactive. When you’re reactive, you blame outside circumstances and other people for obstacles or failures. By inference, there was nothing you could’ve done differently. When you’re proactive, you take responsibility for everything in your life and, because you’ve assumed control, you can anticipate difficulties, then devise a plan and take actions for overcoming any circumstance.

10 Reasons Your Body Craves Junk Food

Yup, you’re hard-wired to want to chow down on burgers, donuts and chips. Blame evolution: It made your caveman ancestors want to load up on high-calorie buffalo or sabertooth tiger dinner whenever it was available so that they’d survive until the next hunt. Unfortunately, the human genome hasn’t caught up to the fact that hunting now means taking a detour through a drive-through. “Today, we’re surrounded by a sea of high-calorie junk food, and our genes are telling us to eat it all up because that’s what’s there!” Roberts says. 


The ramifications of this data go beyond recognizing that training is good for your brain. It shows that people who value strength are more likely to develop habits that are in their best interests—a key skill to have if you are in the market to change your body by losing fat and building muscle.
