If You Are Ready To Rev Up Your Workout Intensity, Then Discover Which Split System Will Work Best For You! If you’ve been consistently lifting weights for more than six months on a full-body programme, you probably aren’t getting nearly as sore as when you started. Your muscle growth and strength gains may have slowed too. Even intermediate bodybuilders can’t make gains indefinitely. WHY? You’ve likely reached a point in your training called a plateau, with your muscles becoming accustomed to the workload, routine and intensity levels. So now what? To take your training to the next level, you must…

SHOULD BODYBUILDERS DO CARDIO? Most days you go to gym with the intention of building a certain bodypart. Monday might be back and bi’s, Tuesday chest and tri’s and perhaps Wednesday is legs and shoulders. But what day is dedicated to training the most important muscle of all – your heart? If you’re of the bodybuilding ilk, chances are you forgo pumping your heart in favour of pumping iron every day. But really, the healthier your heart muscle gets, the quicker the others will follow. HEART-HEALTHY TIMING If you imagine an emaciated marathon runner when you think of cardiovascular fitness,…

It is one thing to talk about nutrition, fitness, freedom, responsibility – it is another to live them! That’s why intellectual learning has limited value in life. How many times have you decided to change and not been able to do it? I don’t just mean quitting smoking, but also making resolutions such as “I am going to be honest about this from now on,” or “The next time he says that to me, I am just not going to get angry.” And how often did you succeed? Most probably you ended up saying, “I can’t change,” “I can’t do…

Practically everybody remembers the first time of making love with a spouse. Practically nobody remembers the 373rd. Love stories are about falling in love, not staying that way. One wonders what happens in a marriage that has lasted many years. Is there any excitement about staying in love? Can it remain romantic when you climb into bed with the same person night after night? “It depends on what you mean by romantic,” says one wife of 15 years. “If you mean that can’t-keep-your-hands-off-each-other feeling, then no, you don’t have that. It’s actually better than that, because sex is no longer…

LET’S TALK PARENTING How to be a better parent? No other  task in the world is so complicated and challenging as that of raising children. Yet a career spent with youngsters and their problems has led me to this haunting conclusion: each set of new parents approaches the formidable assignment of raising humans with the least imaginable training and preparation. For the relatively simple roles of doctor, lawyer, pilot, plumber, it is taken for granted that years of preparation will be necessary to attain even mediocrity. But one is apparently assumed to come to the job of being a parent…

“There is evidence that mindfulness practices have “broad-spectrum” effects against depression and anxiety and can also decrease general psychological distress.” – Journal of Psychiatric Practice “Just 25 minutes of mindfulness practice over three days can relieve the symptoms of stress.” – Carnegie Mellon University “Harvard unveils an MRI study proving that mindfulness meditation literally rebuilds the brain’s gray matter in 8 weeks.” – Harvard University “New evidence shows that mindfulness meditation reduces depressive episodes.” University of Toronto “Mindfulness helps children develop social and emotional intelligence, resulting in greater self-awareness, less stress, and higher levels of happiness and empathy. Kids just…

If meditation and autosuggestion can both be joined together – if they can be made complementaries, the progress happens in leaps and bounds. The science of meditation and the science of autosuggestion are two sides of one coin. In fact, they are halves of one whole. Bring all opposites together as complementaries. And then you are not moving with only one leg, you are not flying with only one wing. You have both wings, you have both legs, and you have totality. Both are essential for making one total and whole. Meditation brings us towards subjectivity and autosuggestions move us…

HOW TO AVOID ONE OF BODYBUILDING’S MOST COMMON MISTAKES Don’t look now, but something seems to have gone terribly wrong with the way some bodybuilders are training nowadays. Physique competitors have always tended to believe that more is better and nothing succeeds like excess. But this “too much of a good thing” philosophy has got completely out of hand. Phenomenal physiques shrink and shrivel, depleted by too much training, too many hours of cardio and too little nutrition. Giants turn into pygmies. Prime cuts become chopped steak. Athlete who once looked like they belonged in Pumping Iron ended up as…

What’s it all about? Does it lie in the eyes of the beheld? Or in the hair/ the legs / the breast/ the smell/ the voice – even the money or the power? Do you have to be born with it – or can you acquire it? How do you know if you’ve got what it takes? In other words, what adds up to sexual allure? The scene is the cabin of a steamliner. As the man enters, he surprises a woman in the act of pilfering his possessions. She turns around to look at him. He asks her what…

It strikes me as one of life’s cruellest jokes that men reach their sexual peak at 18, while women typically take until age 30 or later to reach theirs. The discrepancy sounds like a formula for universal heterosexual frustration, until you realize that the definition of sexual peak has nothing to do with how willing or good a lover you are. That ability comes with experience and caring – and there is nothing to stop it from improving with age, says Dr. Saul H. Rosenthal, medical director of the Sexual Therapy Clinic of San Antonia and author of Sex Over…

One of the most decadent of the pleasures known to mankind is undoubtedly the rip roaring activity called SEX; but before you sink inside your sheets to indulge in some frenzied passion, take some time out to find what exactly is healthy for you. I turn your personal gyno, and breaks the myths associated with sex to endure that you not only get entranced in an out of the world organismic orbit but also practice a safe worry-free sex. Myth – A creamy white vaginal discharge, with an unpleasant smell is normal in all females. Fact – While a white…
