Sagittarius Horoscope for Friday, September 26, 2014
Friday, September 26, 2014 - You are riding a surge of previously suppressed energy today, like a surfer on a building wave. You thrive on the excitement and the current adrenaline rush makes you feel fully alive. Just don't get so distracted that you lose touch with your unexpressed feelings. You may have a sweet opportunity to connect with someone on a deeper lever now, but you have to be willing to take a different kind of risk. Instead of avoiding the discomfort of vulnerability, discuss your desires with a confidant you can trust.

4 Rules for Making a Muscle-Building Protein Shake
Using the whole fruit is a much better option that using fruit juice. When you use just the juice you miss out on all of the phytochemicals and fiber that the flesh and skin of fruits have in them. Using just the fruit juice also can add up to a lot of calories fast, with almost all of the calories coming in the form of sugar. The only way you should use any fruit juice is to mask the greens food flavor, if necessary, or to add a big burst of nutrients. Good “juice-only” tactics would be to add an ounce of tart cherry juice concentrate or pomegranate juice. These two juices provide a ton of antioxidants with fewer calories, so they do make the grade.

The 30 Best Abs Exercises of All Time
Everyone is different; some may get abs from soley working the belly to exhaustion while others may get their abs to pop without a single situp. But to train the core effectively, it comes down to the three planes of motion: frontal, sagittal, and transerve. Doing abs exercises in a circuit style keeps the intensity high and will likely lead to more fat loss.
6 Ways to Row Right

Break Through Your Arm-Training Plateaus
With lockouts, you work over only the top third of the range of motion (ROM). After you complete three sets of full-range close-grip bench presses (hands shoulder-width apart), do partial reps with a weight that's 10%-20% more than your one-rep max. Use a power rack with the safeties set about 4 inches below the point at which your arms are fully extended, or you may be able to use a Smith machine with the stops similarly set. Do one last back-off set in which you remove the extra 10%-20% and do as many reps as you can.

The Rock's Leg Workout
Johnson hits the gym six days per week, usually focusing on one body part per day. At 40, he's a seasoned, instinctive trainer. "I go by feel," he says, and notes that when he's in the gym it's all business. "I have my headphones on. I'm listening to my music. I'm 100% focused. There's no wasted time and no wasted effort when it comes to me and the weights." And The Rock's favorite body part? Legs , which is why he leaves them for Saturday when he has extra time to train them.
Tough Mud and Warrior Blood: The Endurance Race Workout Plan
Preparing for an athletic event that requires such a diverse array of fitness qualities—strength, explosive power, and cardiovascular endurance—requires a training regimen that is equally diverse, and we’ve got all your bases covered here with this four-week program. This template provides a perfect balance of strength and endurance training. Since these races take place outdoors, it’s good if you can get outdoors to train. If you take a kettlebell, a sandbag, a pair of dumbbells, and a weight sled to an outdoor area, the whole thing can be done outside. But, if you’re like many guys and lack the outdoor space, the entire workout can also be performed in a gym setting, as we illustrate here. At the very least, strive to complete the running portion of the program outdoors. No treadmill can properly approximate a hill run.
SciVation Xtend at Bodybuilding.com
Scivation XTEND is the best-selling, most-advanced BCAA drink mix on the planet. At the heart of XTEND is 7g of BCAAs -- in the nature-designed and research-proven 2:1:1 ratio -- plus glutamine and citrulline malate.

Studies consistently show that people who eat more protein have more lean muscle mass and a higher quality protein intake is most important. For example, in a recent study of young, active adults, those with a higher intake of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) from their diet, had greater lean mass and better insulin sensitivity.

Trainer Q&A: Why Does My Shoulder Crack and Pop?
A snapping, popping, or other annoyance that starts to radiate, say from the shoulder to the neck or through the arm, may be a pulled/torn muscle. A snap or crack in the shoulder can also mean the bones could be rubbing on themselves, which could be a developing arthritic condition or a loose joint creating a “grating” sound.

FD Fat Loss By Mind Power (Athlete)
"Hi Pauline & Fighter Diet
As an IFBB Professional Figure Athlete, it goes without saying that getting and staying lean is my job. My livelihood depends on my physical condition and maintaining a low body fat. I am, however, a normal person just like everyone else that battles with overcoming my desire to eat poorly. I am also interested in finding out how other people are successful with obtaining and maintaining a fit physique. I personally struggle with the mental obstacles that come into play while dieting just like everyone else. I had some interaction with Pauline Nordin via email and I asked her how she overcomes her own personal obstacles to maintain her year round lean physique. She sent me over a copy of her Ebook: Fat Loss By Mind Power. I was very excited! I
FD The Men's Guide (Athlete)
My wife has purchased many of your Fighter Diet ebooks and she loves them!!! She recently did her first physique competition and she helped me by using your Men's Guide to FD eBook. Thanks for help!!
Think Fighter Diet is all about girl power? Well you thought wrong.
It’s true Pauline knows a thing or two about women's health and fitness, but her FD concept can be applied to any "body" male or female. To bring a little focus back on the Y chromosome, she's created the Men's Guide to Fighter Diet.
An excellent ebook, the Men’s Guide is a Fighter Diet Concept book, workout plan and meal plan all wrapped into one. One section could also be considered the nutshell version of Cardio for Leanness. In fact, for that reason, you could think of the Men’s Guide as the male version (though
The Definitive Guide to Whey Protein
All proteins are comprised of amino acids and amino acids serve as the building blocks of proteins. Each protein, regardless of its source, is made up of approximately twenty amino acids. Since all proteins are comprised of the same 20 amino acids, how is one protein source different than another? The answer to this question is that the sequence of the amino acids differs from one type of protein to another type of protein. In addition, the composition of the amino acids that comprise a given protein is what makes one type of protein different from another. For example, soy does not have as much of the amino acid methionine as some other high quality proteins and egg protein has more branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) than vegetable proteins.
Can Eating A Paleo Diet Lead To Weight Loss?
For weight loss, the paleo diet, which is what our ancestors ate when they had to hunt or gather their food instead of growing it, seems like a good idea. It’s high in protein and fiber—and anyone who’s ever tried to lose weight has been told that the secrets to slimming down are protein and fiber, which take longer to transit down the digestive system making us feel fuller longer. Processed carbohydrates, on the other hand, zip through our system making us hungry seeminly minutes after we’ve put down the fork.

5 Ways Jumping Rope Can Help You Look and Perform Better
Traditionally, jumping rope falls under the category of cardiovascular exercise . When jump ropes are used for longer duration sessions, you can burn a lot calories. The great thing about varying your jump rope training to include shorter, high-intensity interval sets (especially with a weighted rope) is that you are getting much higher muscle activation and recruiting more muscle fibers for both upper and lower body. This will actually help you build muscle over time, which can make your body more efficient at burning calories. Think of the difference between a distance runner’s physique and a sprinter’s physique and that will give you a good analogy of the different results you can get from varied jump rope training routines.

Quad Squad: The Squat and Leg Press
The squat , known as the granddaddy of all bodybuilding exercises, simultaneously works more major muscles than any other resistance-training movement. The quadriceps (quads), hamstrings and gluteus maximus (glutes) are specifically targeted, while the hip and torso muscles are incorporated for stabilization and to assist the primary muscles. You can see why many experts in weight training consider the squat to be a whole-body exercise, even though you utilize it as a lower-body move.
Muscle Protein Synthesis and the Anabolic Window
One of the most cited of these papers was Rasmussen’s paper, “An oral essential amino acid-carbohydrate supplement enhances muscle protein anabolism after resistance exercise,” published in the Journal of Applied Physiology in 2000. You might recognize Rasmussen and his colleagues Tipton, Miller, Wolf, and Wolfe from a ton of workout nutrition studies they performed at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. For this particular study, however, the team gave two groups of fasted subjects a pre-workout drink, led them through some leg presses and leg extensions, and collected blood and biopsy data. The exercise protocols were identical; however, the experimental group received Essential Amino Acid and sucrose beverages after the workout, while the control group got water sweetened with zero-cal aspartame. The blood and tissue samples show pretty conclusively that MPS was jacked up in the experimental group.
The Complete 4-Week Beginner's Workout Program
In the realm of fitness, three-month programs dominate the landscape. You’ve even seen plenty of them in this magazine over the years. Are they effective? Absolutely. But we’re going to let you in on an interesting secret: It doesn’t necessary take eight or 12 weeks to get your feet wet in the gym. Not that you’ll be a seasoned vet after four weeks, but if you can just get that first month under your belt, you’ll get yourself over the proverbial hump where so many fail and give up, and set the stage for a lifetime of gains. Let’s just call this the accelerated beginner’s guide to bodybuilding. In this plan, your first month of training will be demanding, but not so demanding as to cause injury (or worse yet, burnout), and progressive in the sense that each week you’ll graduate to different exercises, higher volume, more intensity or all of the above. After four weeks you’ll not only be ready for the next challenge but you’ll have built a significant amount of quality muscle. In other words, one month from now you’ll look significantly better with your shirt off than you look now.

The 5 Biggest Workout Mistakes - Born Fitness
Thanks to the Internet, there’s more fitness information available today—right now—than there ever has been in history. With that much to look at, it’s no wonder you’re confused about what to do. The solution is to pick one thing and block the rest out of your mind, at least for a few months. (Don’t worry, it will still be here when you get back.) You’ll never make progress if you doubt what you’re doing or continually hop aboard the latest trend. A flawed program—and ALL of them are, to some degree—that you commit to is better than a superbly designed one that you’re unsure about or want to tamper with.

4 Reasons You're Not Getting Stronger - Born Fitness
There is nothing in strength training that will pay higher dividends than simply lifting a heavier weight, or lifting the heaviest weights you can for more repetitions. And then making sure each week you try to add to this amount. There’s a place for speed/high rep days. There’s also a day for grip days. (Yes, grip can be a big barrier.) But if you don’t have a day (or an exercise) dedicated to simply adding more weight to the bar, you won’t become stronger.
Five Snacks to Build Muscle and Stay Shredded
The nutrition mantra to avoid snacking between meals assumes you’re indulging in empty, sugarfrosted or fatladen calories that inflate your waistline. But when you substitute lean, high-protein fare (including bacon quesadillas— read on), you turn a so-called hindrance into an advantage. “Snacking is fine if it fits with your overall calorie and macro needs for the day,” says Brian St. Pierre, R.D., a sports dietitian for Precision Nutrition ( precision nutrition.com ). “It can also prevent overeating later in the day, which you might do if you went hours without eating at all.” Fortify your diet with these snacks, apps, and hors d’oeuvres, which are quick to prep and full of flavor.

Music Mindset: Don't Wait For Tomorrow - Born Fitness
Eds note: Where do I get my fitness motivation, inspiration, and mindset? Oftentimes it comes from music. I look at all forms of writing like a director watches a film: I notice the elements, rather than the big picture. This is not about good songs versus bad songs. It’s how a lyric, a line, or a sequence in a song influences or impacts my mindset. And these posts are designed for you to take the lyrics and interpret in a way that adds meaning or value to your life.

Flexion, lateral flexion, extension and rotation, folks – these should make it into your weekly training routine. So go ahead and gather ye turtlenecks where ye may – it’s time to toss them into the giveaway box.
Three Muscle-Building Supplements You've Never Heard Of
Three Muscle-Building Supplements You've Never Heard Of
Tips for Maximizing Your Lat Exercises
In the most simple terms, one of the functions of your lats is to help pull your arms down toward your sides. To get a good visual for the plane of movement is to imagine a jumping jack. With that in mind I want you to put your focus on the path of your elbows, not your hands. A mental trick I use is to imagine your hands and forearms only as hooks that hold the bar. As the bar goes up, your elbows are going to move away from your body, and as the bar comes down they will go toward your body. The lower you pull the bar, the closer your elbows get to your sides. The more range of motion, the greater the muscle activation, the more muscle development.

Life Happens - Born Fitness
One of the bigger problems in this industry is that we have too many details to worry about that we lose sight of what really matters. We stress over all the small things and in doing so living a “healthy life” feels like a burden that we either reject the healthy behaviors or become obsessed to the point that it cannibalizes other areas of our lives.

That short but intense protocol, when performed for the right number of sets and frequency throughout the week is just one of the three ways I stimulate new growth in your most underdeveloped muscle groups. For example, I would combine that movement with an antagonist (opposite muscle) exercise, such as a pushup, and follow the same protocol. Superset just 2 sets of this combination, and then combined with a frequency model of training, you’ll be on your way to faster results .
