Let’s face it: No one says they aren’t busy, even if they fill half their days playing video games and endlessly scrolling their Instagram feed.Regardless what your definition of busy is, you want to minimize your time in the gym while maximizing your results, right? But you also know total volume, number of sets X reps over time, results in greater muscular gains (this meta-analysis of the research found that to be true). So how do you get your reps in and still make time for Game of Thrones re-runs? Supersets. But not just any superset. A unique spin on the conventional superset that shows major promise in research. This type of superset involves pairing up opposing muscle groups and training them back to back. For this article, we’re going to focus on your back and chest, but other example would be your biceps and triceps, quads and hamstrings and so on.Supersets for Super Gains In one study, 16 trained men performed two workout protocols—three sets of seal … [Read more...] about How to Supersize Your Upper Body Workout

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Jonah Hill is opening up about his long-time struggle with weight and body image. In an honest sit-down interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the 34-year-old actor said growing up in the spotlight left him vulnerable to criticisms about his body. "I think everybody has a version of themselves ― I call it a snapshot ― at some point in life... [you’re] trying to hide from the world. Even if you get success or grow up or become good-looking or whatever ... you kind of carry some part of that with you," he told DeGeneres. "For me, it’s definitely being like this 14-year-old kid, being … [Read more...] about Jonah Hill Talks About His Weight Loss and Body Image Issues on
Health Diet diet and nutrition kevin smith Health After filmmaker Kevin Smith suffered a “massive heart attack” in February, doctors ordered him to lose 50 pounds in order to transform his health. Since then he has dropped 17 pounds—by only eating potatoes. But experts warn that subsisting solely on spuds is far from advisable. Eschewing other on-trend diets like veganism and keto, Smith opted for illusionist Penn Jillette’s regime. As documented in his 2016 New York Times bestseller Presto!: How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear, the regime sees followers eat potatoes for two weeks before phasing in vegetable stews to top up the body’s nutrients.

Best of all, the workouts were short and the program was for a set length of time. I decided I would commit to getting through 12 weeks of BBG, hitting every single workout, and give up my guilty pleasures (namely chocolate, sweets, and Diet Coke). If putting in my maximum effort for three months didn’t yield results, well, at least I’d tried. To my surprise, I actually stayed committed. And, after just a few weeks, I started to see changes. Day one, I could only manage five half pushups; after four weeks, I could do 10. I was becoming less afraid of running, and my times were getting slightly faster. Physically, my stomach was slimming down slightly. These changes really gave me the drive to keep going. I finished the 12-week program, looked at my progress pictures, … [Read more...] about ‘I Committed To 12 Weeks Of Workouts—And It Totally Transformed My Body’
