  1. Ever since the iPhone 7 removed the headphone jack, audio companies started releasing wireless Bluetooth devices for consumers. Not all of them deliver a great experience and some simply don't match up to the quality of an analog headphone. Bose's brand new SoundSport Free may be the answer to a true wireless earbud that delivers a supreme experience. The earbuds are designed to compete with Apple's AirPods and we feel, the company has surpassed the competition is almost every way. Here's what we think about the SoundSport Free: Design The SoundSport Free is larger than Apple's AirPods albeit more comfortable to place in your ear. It has a secure fit and is probably the only wireless earbuds that do not fall of when you're running at a high pace. The earbuds do not move around once fitted into your ear, and we tried to wiggle it out by aggressively shaking our head or by laying upside down — it didn't fall out. These wireless earbuds are the perfect companion for gym sessions, especially if you like to do the heavy lifting. © Bose These earbuds are very comfortable in terms of fit and will not leave you irritated even if you sweat a lot like me. If you prefer to run outdoors, the sound isolation is balanced perfectly so that you are aware of your surroundings (At 50% volume level). If you are in the gym and want to block all the annoying sounds, you can easily do so by simply increasing the volume to full. The most impressive feature on these wireless earbuds is the fact that it is IPX4 rated. This means that the wireless earbuds are rain and sweat resistant, but don't even think of swimming with these earbuds. Audio Quality When it comes to sound, I'm a bit anal due to my musical background and one thing I can confidently say is that the SoundSport Free left me very impressed. The sound is perfectly balanced in terms of highs, mids, and lows to give a complete experience. You can always make the sound a bit warmer by tweaking your smartphone's audio settings and it becomes the perfect wireless earbud for your workout. If you are looking for the best audio experience, the Bose SoundSport Free blows the AirPods out of the water. Connectivity & Ease Of Use The one thing that annoys me the most about wireless headphones is the process of connecting it to your device. Apple's W1chip made it very convenient to connect the AirPods with the iPhone 7 or any other device that came after. Bose successfully made it as easy to connect the SoundSport Free with your device. Initial setup requires you to pair via the Bose Connect App and once connected, it automatically connects to your device seamlessly © BCCL In terms of range, the SoundSport Free works great even if walls, doors or people are in the way of your device. During our testing, the SoundSport Free can easily receive signals without any interruptions even when you are 35 feet away from your smartphone. If you manage to lose your earbuds, the Bose Connect App has the 'Find My Buds' feature which shows the last location and time you used the headphones. This is one neat feature every wireless earbud should have as it is essential to know whether you have misplaced your earbuds and where exactly it may have happened. How Does it Perform? On the right earbud, you have a bunch of buttons that lets you control your music and also launch your Digital voice assistants such as Siri or Google Assistant. You can play/pause music, skip tracks, answer or reject calls with these buttons. These buttons make it easier to manage your music and also helps in multi-tasking if you get a lot of calls. The microphone on the earbuds is probably the best in terms of call quality as my fiancé could hear me talking clearly even though there was loud music in the background. Battery Life © Bose The wireless earbuds can last up to 5 hours on a single charge and can be extended with the carry case by an additional 10 hours. This is more than enough for your workout session or runs, even though the capacity is far less when compared to Apple's AirPods. One of the most likable features of the charging case is how fast it can charge the earbuds. It has a quick charge feature where the earbuds can be charged for 15 minutes and you'll get 45 minutes worth of audio playback. The Final Say Priced at Rs 18,9990, it is quite more expensive than the AirPods but it also offers unmatched audio quality. The wireless earbuds fit perfectly in the ear and do not fall out no matter how hard you try. The SoundSport Free is probably the only wireless earbud that has impressed me in the past two years and I would put all my money on it
  2. Girls and guys have very different ways of dealing with their first days at a gym. Here are a few of the things that they say.
  3. While Bollywood is famous for rivalries between top actresses, the budding friendship between Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt is defying this stereotype. While Bollywood is famous for rivalries between top actresses, the budding friendship between Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt is defying this stereotype. On a recent talk show, BFFs with Vogue, the two actresses were asked to give love advice to each other. Speaking to Katrina, Alia quipped, "Leave the gym and focus on men instead." On this Katrina replied: ?I am waiting for Alia to get married first." Moreover, in another segment of the show the host Neha Dhupia asked Katrina and Alia to punch each other by mentioning a thing they hate about one another. Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt give us major friendship goals The two ladies have been seen gyming together and constantly supporting each other on social media Alia initiated the game by saying: ?One thing I find super annoying about Katrina is that she never sticks to plans." Katrina then retaliated, "She could possibly be a little more generous and pass some of the critics my way rather than taking it all and all the awards." The friendship between the two actresses came into limelight when they were spotted at the book launch of their gym trainer, Yasmin Karachiwala. From gymming together to constantly praising and supporting each on social media, the two ladies have definitely given us major friendship goals.
  4. It is somewhere around this time of the year, that getting out of bed calls for some serious effort. It's pretty cold outside, we're cuddled up in blankets and life seems to be running in slow motion every day. Plus, we're all lazy anyway. To sum it up — our daily grind is the hardest right now. But that's the tale of a few of us. For the rest of them, including Aayush Sharma, getting out of bed and heading for a workout is an ordinary drill — step out of a sea-facing apartment (worth crores), seat yourself into a chauffeur-driven Range Rover and arrive at a celebrity-approved fitness studio in Bandra. And as it was with Sharma last evening, you dress in some dope gym gear while at it. In no better words for Aayush Sharma, however, the lad easily represents the concept of easy, minimal and effective workout dressing, that won't disappoint (even if you skip leg day). © Viral Bhayani This is how you dress to the gym — not in slouchy T-shirts, Aditya-Roy-Kapoor shorts or apparel that's too uncomfortable for the chest press. As the biggest style kings prove everyday, classic T-shirts and joggers can easily solve the purpose for you. And they needn't be holed, ripped, distressed or holding onto your thighs like a leech. Let them go against your body proportions, and hide those days when you skipped leg day. Besides, like getting out of the house wasn't hard enough, don't complicate the process further. The combo of a T-shirt + joggers is easy, easier than sipping on water during a workout; so put your loyalties there. And to top it off, for some NY-approved vibes, throw on a snap back and casual slip-ons. You have to change into your trainers once you step in, anyway. © Viral Bhayani Aayush's take on gym fashion is simple — don't try too hard. Besides, he doesn't need to be outrageous to grab the spotlight; people know he hails from a famous family anyway. Lucky for him, he can do whatever the hell he wants. And since he's married to a loving lass in real life, he needn't even dress to impress. He can stay put, and reach the stars without even a calculated sartorial attempt.
  5. Name: Piyush Makhijani Just like it starts for most, I was also a chubby school kid. Then it was the engineering student lifestyle that further pushed me towards obesity. Labs, assignments, practicals and preparations made me fatter over time. Though I never cared about it much, deep inside I knew I was getting fat and needed to do something about it. More than me, it bothered my dad. He would often ask me to get off the couch and be physically active. But I was too lazy for that and I ignored what he said. One day after a shower, I looked at myself in the mirror and was taken aback. I knew it was high time to get things rolling. I had thin arms and a bulging belly. I asked myself 'do you really want to live like this for the rest of your life?' I wondered how good it would feel to confidently take off my T-shirt and look fit. © Piyush Makhijani This is when I decided to take up a transformation challenge. I took a 3-month gym subscription to ensure I was regular at least for next 3 months. I still consider this as one of the best decisions I have taken in my life. Although I had started working out regularly, I couldn't see any profound change in my physique. I tried everything my gym trainers told me-- high-reps, cardio and tons of ab crunches. I even tried following a healthy diet and consumed mostly boiled food which really made me cranky. A year and a half had past and I was far from my goal of looking good without a T-Shirt. I thought maybe I should have a companion on my journey and decided to seek help. This is when I got in touch with Yash Sharma and emailed the guy to inquire about his coaching services. It was great as he offered me a student discount and we began the journey. To my surprise, he made me eat simple household food and even added my favorite biscuits in the evening snack. Of course, it was all in a structured manner but I didn't feel I was dieting anymore. Next, instead of light weights and high reps, I started lifting heavy with moderate to low reps and focused on getting stronger. In a span of 12 weeks, I could see positive changes in my physique. I was leaner and more muscular than before. I succeeded in my previous goal and now I'm focusing on adding more lean muscle to my frame. I train 5 days a week and my supplement stack only includes a multivitamin, vitamin D, whey protein, and creatine. Fitness has not only helped me aesthetically but has also added to my work ethics. I make way to work out even during my exams or even when I'm travelling. The gym has taught me two valuable lessons: 1) Consistency matters but only in the right direction. 2) ‎You always have a little more in the tank and can push one more rep. © Piyush Makhijani These two things have brought me a long, long way and I am sure it will take me ahead.
  6. Being a paralegal by profession, I am sure that you won't believe that it is me in these pictures. When I tell everyone that I do a 9 hour shift, they actually don't believe that I maintain this physique throughout the year. But this is not how I have always looked. I used to be mocked once and called names like 'Papad' and 'sukhi haddi'. I also came across a few self-proclaimed experts who misguided me, but eventually, I did achieve what I wanted to. Here's my story, hope it helps and inspires you. © Twitter Was Thin But Athletic © Twitter I used to play sports back in school and was very active during my teen age. Like a typical ectomorph, I was very thin and underweight as per my height. After school, I decided to change this and joined a gym. Though I had paid the membership, I didn't actually feel like going most of the times. All the people training around me in the gym had a good physique, if not the best. This made me feel inferior and I kept myself out. On top of this, some dudes left no stone unturned to demotivate me! I soon realized that my answer to these people is hard work. Learnt Myself © Twitter I've changed a lot of gyms in my life, but trust me, I learnt more from Google than what I collectively learnt from all the gym trainers. This shouldn't come as a surprise to any of you as we don't have good educated trainers in our country. Even in a high end gym, I used to hear things like “bina steroids six packs nhi ban sakte'' from trainers. I never believed these so called Fitness experts and relied more on information from the internet. This is how I saved myself from getting into steroid usage. Experience With An Educated Trainer I truly found out the difference between an educated trainer and a non-educated one when I came under the guidance of Anuj Tyagi. We used to work out in the same gym back then. He was the only one who told me that six packs could be made with natural diet and good training. He told me how natural nutrition works and highlighted the mistakes that I was doing in my nutrition programme. Since he himself had a good physique that looked so natural, I was convinced that he can actually make it possible. Hardwork and Commitment is the Key © Twitter Trust me guys, at one point of time I almost believed that a good physique cannot be achieved naturally. But let me tell you this, it very well can be. No doubt that it will be more difficult naturally and you would need a lot of patience but trust me, it is worth the pain in the end. I used to train six days and even seven days a week sometimes. I followed a high protein, medium fat and low carb diet. Initially I did face difficulty in following this but eventually it became a lifestyle for me. Now I follow the same schedule and diet throughout the year which keeps me fit from inside and outside. I wouldn't say that this was easy. Coming out of your comfort zone is never easy. But you have to push harder to see the results!
  7. Every day we are reminded of the power of social media. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes not so much. Anything and anyone can go viral, and sometimes it turns out to be a blessing in disguise, and that's what happened to 12-year-old Syrian refugee, Muhammad Hussein. The young boy was captured staring longingly through the window of a local gym in Turkey, and soon the picture went viral just because it was that heart-breaking for people. The viral picture also showed that the 12-year old worked as a shoe shiner, and it turned out the picture was taken in the Adiyaman province, and was clicked by one of the gym's clients. © twitter Since it went viral in Turkey, as soon as the gym owner spotted the emotional picture, he posted on Twitter asking where they can find the boy. And soon enough, Muhammad, who fled the war in Syria, was found and was offered a free lifetime membership by the gym. What an incredible gesture! See, humanity isn't dead. © twitter The owner, Engin DoÄan, told local news, “A boy, looking through the gym window, wearing slippers in the middle of winter and carrying his bagpack… Our aim was to find him and offer him a lifetime membership here.” And, then DoÄan gave everyone the best news ever – Muhammad is one of their members now. DoÄan owns the gym with Mustafa Küçükkaya and Dicle Oma. © twitter Küçükkaya added, “It affected me very much because we came from nothing and we did not have such a gym in our time. The Turkish people are very sensitive about this issue, I am very touched, I think we are doing something very good.” While talking to a local Turkish news agency, the young Syrian boy said, “He found me and helped me,” he said. “I had always dreamed of losing weight and now I believe I can do that by working out.” What a happy ending! The story touched a lot of people online and everyone was just happy for the little kid who finally got what he wanted with the help of the internet. Sometimes media shows just how powerful it is and how big of a heart the world has. The world is pretty messed up but images like these give us hope to move forward. — Oldmomma (@oldmommatajuri) January 9, 2018 It does go a long way. Why isn't the western world this nice? A simple smile and/or gesture goes a very long way. — Micoah (@micoaht) January 9, 2018 Good people, everywhere. Brought tears to my eyes. Too many good people on this earth. — Kódi (@IamPhreedah) January 9, 2018 All of us right now, probably –
  8. We agree on the fact that you shouldn't pay attention to how you are looking inside the gym to look good outside it. However, that is not an advice we will give you if you want to reap the maximum benefit from your workouts. Just like encouraged and appreciated workers turn out to be the most productive at work, your body will be more invested in your workouts if it looks good during the workout session. Moreover, there is nothing wrong with looking fab while you lift. It's a win-win, really! However, most of us, irrespective of whether we are new at the gym or regular with our workouts, seem to have some difficulty while choosing our workout clothes. Also, we end up buying the same items in bulk, to a point where our gym wear becomes our costume. Working out is supposed to be fun and energetic, why should your workout clothes be otherwise? Here, we are giving you five cardinal rules to follow in order to choose the right workout clothes and make your gym outfits super fun and functional in 2018: 1. Comfort You need to make sure whatever it is you are wearing should be comfortable. By that, we don't only mean that it should feel good. It should fit you in a way that is activity appropriate. You cannot be wearing baggy or ill-fitting shorts/trousers on days you will be working out legs. Similarly, avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes on days that involve doing a lot of stretching or Yoga. Stretch, squat, jog, and jump in the trial room before you purchase the clothes to make sure your body feels comfortable in them. © Instagram 2. Fabric This is one of the most crucial things you should be paying attention to. As a rule, make sure you always go for fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin. Lycra, nylon, and polyester work best. Try not getting gravitated towards the quintessential 'loose cotton T-shirt' that many people believe is an ideal gym wear - because it's not. Cotton absorbs moisture but it has a tendency to get stuck to your sweaty skin, thereby impacting your workout. © Instagram 3. Fit Make sure your gymwear fits you perfectly and accentuates your gains and losses. When your body starts looking good in those mirrors, you will be motivated to work out regularly and will not feel like skipping the gym. The satisfaction of knowing that your workouts are paying off will only come through when you can see it - and that is not going to happen if you hide your body under layers of baggy clothes. © Instagram 4. Quality You are going to torture your gym wear. You will be pushing your body to such an extent that it is forced to change its shape - with these clothes on. Obviously, they need to be durable for that, unless you want to spend a tonne of money on gymwear every couple of months. Stick to stretchable fabrics that will not shrink post-wash, and always make sure you double check the stitching, patches, and zippers before you purchase your gymwear. © Instagram 5. Colour Yes, we know that you want to pick up the blacks, blues, charcoals, and greys. Understandable, because they are the safest colours. But you know what? Once in a while, don't hesitate to pick up that lime green, fluoro pink or candy orange that your eye got stuck on. Do you think you will look good in it while you smash the weights? If the answer is yes, just pick it up. It's 2018 and nobody's got time for 'what should be an ideal colour for men's gymwear'. © Instagram Keep training hard and then some more, till anything you put on looks fly AF on you.
  9. It's hard to keep it kicking it in the fitness game 365 days a year. While people think this comes easy to the celebrities, it's in fact harder for them. Despite the hefty work load and constant media obligations, some celebrities still manage to stay in top shape throughout the year. So without further ado, here are 10 of the best built celebrities of 2017. 10) Kevin Hart © YouTube Unless you are a fan, you probably don't know that Kevin Hart is a big time weight training fanatic. One look at his Instagram account and you'll know that the man keeps it one hundred percent real when it comes to moving weights. For his height, Kevin's built like a damn dream. 9) Chris Hemsworth © YouTube Blame it on his awesome Australian genetics as Mr. Hemsworth is rarely out of shape. In 2017, 'Thor: Ragnarok' setting screens on fire this year, he took his physique to a whole other level. He always puts his heart and soul into his training and his physique definitely shows off that dedication. 8) Joe Manganiello © YouTube This man from Magic Mike's crew is one hell of a weight shifting machine. Built like a Greek god, Manganiello always manages to look class apart on screen. And that's certainly because the amount of time and effort he puts into planning his workouts and eating. 7) Ryan Reynolds © YouTube The loud mouth Mr. Deadpool isn't someone who has recently gotten fit. He's been jacked since the time he starred in 'Blade Trinity'. Over the course of time, his physique has matured into one the best onscreen Hollywood physiques of all time. 6) Sushant Singh Rajput © YouTube This man has not only come a long way with his acting talent but has also managed to carve a physique which is easily one of Bollywood's best. A couple of his latter roles have really demanded him to push the envelope and Sushant has stood tall to the transformation challenges. He keeps it real 365 days a real. 5) Tiger Shroff © YouTube Laugh all you want at his beard growing abilities but he has a physique that 80% of you reading this piece will never have. He is jacked, ripped and for all the muscle he's carrying, he's astonishingly flexible and agile. That's a very rare combination. All of this hasn't come from a year of two of training but well over a decade of lifting weights and practicing martial arts. 4) Vidyut Jammwal © YouTube They are actors who are made to look like action stars and then, there's Vidyut Jammwal. The man's already built like an action movie hero. Incredible muscle mass, sub 10% body fat year round, amazing flexibility and his whirling combat antics makes him the top new action star in Bollywood. 3) Zac Efron © YouTube Zac's come a long way with his physique. The good thing is that with each movie, his physique has only improved and he's looked better with each outing. With 'Baywatch', Zac managed to pull off a dream beach body. He looked hard and dry all while carrying very respectable muscle mass. You know when you're starring next to The Rock, you can easily get dwarfed. Zac didn't. He actually stood out in the cast. 2) Karan Singh Grover © YouTube Probably one of India cinema's most underrated physiques, Kara's has a beastly build. When it comes to pushing it in the gym, he keeps it 100% hardcore. Name one movie or television shoe where this man isn't jacked. None, that's the answer. He's always on his 'A game' when it comes to going shirtless or even pantless. 1) Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson © YouTube The Rock was jacked even when a lot of us weren't even born. He's sitting at the epitome of bodybuilding and pushing limits in the gym. His work ethic is incredible and that's why at 46-years-old he's still growing bigger. Amazing maturity and consistent hypertrophy, this man walks a thin line between being a bodybuilder and a good looking Hollywood physique. The Rock is a legend. Period!
  10. Respect doesn't come easy. It needs to be earned with hard work, dedication and commitment. When it comes to fitness, the journey to earn that respect is long and tiring. The body doesn't change overnight. It takes years of focused work to get to a point where people start respecting you. A big and largely unseen part of this respect is how you look at people who work out in the same gym as yours. If these 5 people are around in your gym, they deserve your respect. 1) The Fat Guy Who Despite Of All The Judgments, Picks Himself Up And Comes To The Gym Being fat takes a huge toll on one's self esteem. Things get worse when people start judging. While a lot of fat guys avoid gyms there are some who have come to terms with their problem and want to solve it. These are the same people you need to respect and not make fun of. In fact they are prime examples of how to come to terms with your problems and solve them. 2) The Old Man Who Despite Of His Achy Joints Still Makes It A Point To Push Weights This man's probably been pushing weights since Arnold's time but then family and kids slowed him down. He still doesn't make excuses and shows up at the gym to workout in whatever capacity he can. If that doesn't deserve respect, I don't what does. 3) The Ever Consistent Natural Guy This dude's hard working and consistent. You see him training diligently every day. He trains right, lifts heavier and tries to improve his form with every workout. But you wouldn't see him getting bigger that quick because that's what natural body building is, slow and steady. Despite the peer pressure of getting on steroids, this guy still trains as a natural. 4) Women Who Lift Better And Heavier Than You Now a lot of women never move beyond the cardio section of the gym but there are a few who do and make it a point to kick ass in the weights room. Not only have they moved beyond the irrelevant fear of 'getting bulky', they also stand as examples to other women who are lazy and scared of weight training. Some of these women are probably better lifters than more men. 5) The Disabled Champions Disability can either break a person or make him an inspiration for people. Some of these champions do exist and they make it point to hit the gym no matter how hard life has hit them. Their disability doesn't matter. What matters is their will to overcome their disability and fear of failure. These guys deserve the highest order of respect.
  11. 'Nobody is better than anyone at the gym, be it 'fit' or 'fat'. Everyone is there to improve their bodies. Respect each other.' This is the motto everyone should live by, when at the gym. But no, you will find a lot of 'gym douches' who not only make working out a bad experience but they also make it so terrible that your motivation to work out dies a painful death when you see them at the gym. These are the five rules you should live by to make sure that you are not a 'gym douche': 1. Carry A Damn Towel! © YouTube Nobody enjoys your sweat. Period! Nobody deserves such punishment. I have seen so many sweaty people running on the treadmill and their sweat flying all over the place. Or leaving the bench drenched in your glorious sweat after your set. Yuck! It is disgusting. It truly is! Carry a towel, bro. 2. Carry Deodorant © YouTube Yay, you are working hard and breaking a sweat, kudos! But if your sweat stinks, it might just kill people around you. Do not kill people by being a skunk. ALWAYS carry deo! 3. Re- Rack The Weights © YouTube If you are someone who just drops the weights on the floor and walks away, you are a douche of the highest order. Best believe that there are 5 people ALWAYS ready to kill you, only if it were legal. They are as much a part of the gym and deserve to find it in a good condition, just as you do. Rack those weights back. 4. DON'T Sit On The Machines And Use Your Phone, Instead Of Doing Your Set © YouTube This is one of the MOST annoying things people do at the gym. If you are going at a busy hour, chances are that there are fewer machines and more people. There might be someone waiting for you to get off the pec-dec so that they can finish a set. Do not sit there and text or start clicking selfies for social media to prove that you've worked out. Finish your set and move. Let others workout as well! 5. Stop Giving Advice You Heard From Your Favourite Fitness Youtuber © YouTube People do not like a 'know-it-all' nor do they want a random piece of advice from you at the gym. Yes, you may be an expert or there is something going horribly wrong somewhere. But, unsolicited advice is outright annoying for most people. See something wrong? Tell the trainer to deliver the message. It is their job. Do not disturb others and then keep chattering around, keeping them busy. I hope you follow these rules and stop being a 'gym douche'.

  12. Unless you live in a cave, you definitely know who Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is. The former WWE Superstar and the highest paid actor in the world travels extensively across the globe for his movies. If you follow him on social media, you'd find him uploading pictures from every continent he travels to. You can find him in Europe promoting a movie and then a few days after he's in the forests of Asia shooting another movie. This man actually does more in a day than we do in a month. He's always working! The secret behind his undying energy is nothing but his workout ethic. He never ever misses a workout. Never! While most actors build a physique for a specific movie, a character or even a movie is made keeping the Rock's physique in mind. He stays big, beefy and muscular 365 days a year. The biggest thing here that travels with him is his gym, which he calls the Iron Paradise. © Instagram The Rock performs an intense 2 hour workout session with heavy weights every morning at 5 am, no matter where he is. And to ensure he can perform heavy lifts every morning, he has an entire crew behind him that's responsible for setting up The Iron Paradise at every location he goes to. In a recent Instagram video from Vancouver, Dwayne thanked his Iron Paradise crew for putting it together, without fail, every time. He also mentioned that the Iron Paradise has over 40,000 lb (18000 Kilos) of equipment and how hard it is to move such bulk of workout equipment from place to place. Here's the post: My final day in Vancouver... sending a huge thank you to the hundreds of hard working crew responsible for always setting up my #IronParadise aka my traveling carnival in every location I film at. 40,000lbs of steal and iron. I can maintain and build upon an insane work schedule, but only due to having my anchor ready to go every morning at 5am. Grateful to the bone. Thank you guys. #MyAnchor #TravelingIronCarnival #HouseOfFreaks â ï¸ðð¾ A post shared by therock (@therock) on Nov 15, 2017 at 1:58pm PST The Rock's always been very vocal about his love for the iron and it's been over 30 years that this man has been loyal to lifting. His physique and his commitment to the hustle of pushing himself to the limit speaks volume about his astronomical fan following and fame. If there's one man whose Instagram can lift your mood up from the ruins, it's got to be his! We love you, Rock!

  13. No matter where your gym is, it isn't difficult for the typical gym idiot who gets on your nerves every now and then. How to spot them? Well, here are the top five signs. 1. Bicep Curling In The Squat Rack © YouTube It's your leg day .You are wearing that thick power-lifting leather belt. You are all fired up and the pre-workout's kicking. But when you approach the squat rack, you see a dude doing bicep curls in the squat rack. I don't know about you but when I see this happening on my leg day, I literally want to ban that guy from gym or they end up getting a free lecture on gym etiquettes from me. Squat rack is meant for doing heavy lifts such as Squat, Rack pulls, Overhead presses, etc. Barbell curls can be done literally anywhere but these lifts can't be. So please respect that. 2. You Are A Walking Brand Shop © Thinkstock I miss the good old gym times when people wore their old, rugged and worn out clothes during the workout. After all, you are going to the gym to work out, not to show off. Don't get me wrong here. There's nothing wrong in wearing your favorite workout apparel. Just don't be that guy who is blatantly displaying brands from head to toe and doesn't work out a dime. Your clubwear t-shirt and fancy compression pants, nipples popping out of skimpy stringers are only making you look like an idiot. 3. Using Phone More Than Using Your Body © Thinkstock Now I am not asking you to do as I say but if you find yourself on Tinder swiping right, texting a friend and surfing media in between sets, you are doing it wrong. You may not realize while being engrossed in your phone but the other person, who is waiting for the spot, is cringing for sure. He may or may not tell you to hurry up by looking at the size of your muscles but he definitely wants to throw your phone away. 4. Trying To Engage Someone In A Conversation Who Is Already Working Out © Adam Medders Photography This is the most hilarious one out of all. You are in the middle of a set and this guy who has just walked in to the gym, offers you a handshake. And you are like, 'dude, should I drop the weight down to shake your hand or what!' And if he sees you can't shake hands, he will surely touch you either on shoulder or waist to confirm that he's social and hasn't avoided you. Whenever I see this happening, it cracks me up. And just in case you stop and shake hands with him, he will make sure he wastes your time. 5. Drops And Throws The Weights © Thinkstock Don't be that guy whose brain size is getting smaller, while the muscles get bigger. Banging the weight hard on the floor to grab attention is nothing to be proud about. While some do it simply because they don't care about the life of equipment, some do it to look macho. They think they own the gym by paying the membership fee. Weight rooms are generally noisy and it's hard not to make noise while doing deadlifts where weight bangs on the floor but you can certainly lift it under control and re-rack it after using. Throwing around dumb bells is nothing unheard of and makes you an idiot of the highest order.

  14. No Pain, No Gain. Call it a philosophy or call it a statement, this one thing has gotten more bros to see a doctor than the insides of a gym. Let me make it very clear to you that if you've serious strength/muscle goals and you're seriously committed to achieving them, you have to understand one fact- It's going to take a lot of time! Longevity is the key and you can only maintain that in your training if you stay injury-free. The Difference Between Pain And Discomfort © YouTube Understand the difference between pain and discomfort. If you push through discomfort and get one more rep on the bench-press when your pectorals are already exploding, you're going to make some gains. On the other hand, if your knees hurt while walking yet you consistently go on doing heavy squats, because 'no pain, no gain', you're going to end up with patellar tendinopathy and miss weeks or even months of training. I have personally made the mistake when I kept on doing the same movement (rear delt flyes) through pain and eventually injured my rotator cuff which forced me to quit heavy lifting for one year. Don't be that guy! A Few Don'ts For Bigger & Safer Gains 1) Don't Make An Exercise Unnecessarily Difficult The dumbest mistake people do is to make exercises harder and more painful in hopes of making more gains. Narrow stance squats hurt? They're not going develop your outer quads any more than they already have, and you'll just rupture your kneecaps over time. The same goes for a lot of other movements. You can't hack an exercise. A squat is always going remain a squat, whether you do it with a narrow, extra narrow, wide or an extra-wide stance. All you can and should do is make the lift more efficient, according to your body mechanics. So, make the movements more efficient and comfortable not more difficult and painful. This is how you will be able to lift more, grow more and stay injury free. 2) Don't Get Emotionally Attached To An Exercise I know this is hard because we all have our favorite exercises but if decline bench press bothers your shoulders, don't do them for a while. You can perform decline bench cable flyes for your lower chest gains. But don't be that guy who believes that if he doesn't perform his beloved decline press, he is going lose all his gains and continues with pain. If an exercise irritates your joints, it's best to switch to an alternative movement, allowing for recovery. Here, is a list of some common exercises and their alternatives you can perform if you're experiencing discomfort. 3) Don't Go Heavy All The Time © YouTube After a long day, you look at your training log and it says 4 sets of squats with 5 reps. It might be possible for you to go beast mode on all 4 sets but is it plausible? Not really. Heavy lifting requires a calm and focused mindset. If you're not in the best shape psychologically or physically, it is not the best time to lift heavy. Instead, you can adjust your training and make it a power day by performing 4x5 squats with a diminished load and more speed or make it a hypertrophy specific day performing 8-10 reps with a controlled tempo. You can consider modifying the philosophy of “No Pain, No Gain” to “No Pain, Know Gain”. Stay safe and make some gains. All the best!

  15. Well, we all have gym plans and paying for an annual membership is something we often do. But how many of us seriously focus on fitness and workout routines? How many of us truly make sure to hit the gym every day or at least 5 days a week? While we are still are making plans to hit the gym, Shekhar Suman, at the age of 54, is all ready to put people like us to shame. The actor who is remembered for giving us some laughter dose with his epic shows like 'Dekh Bhai Dekh' and 'Movers & Shakers' has now decided to give us some major fitness goals. At the age of 54 when most people complain about body pain, joint issues and so on, Shekhar is sweating it out in the gym like never before getting some bulging biceps. His transformation reminds us of passionate bodybuilders who train themselves really hard.

  16. The Indian cricket team continued its domination in the sub-continent following a ruthless outing in Sri Lanka. The visiting team whitewashed the Lankans 3-0 in the Tests and then backed it up with a 5-0 triumph in the ODIs. The Indian side didn't even allow the poor Lankans to win the one-off T20I as a consolation, instead they won that game to complete what officially turned out to be a historic 9-0 overall rout of their counterparts. Now, after such a convincing and comprehensive performance, you'd reckon the Indian players would have rightly earned a much-needed break, right? Wrong. There is no rest or break when you are a fitness freak like Virat Kohli. After decimating the Lankans in their own backyard, while his teammates were probably spending time with their family, Kohli was seen sweating it out during a training drill in the gym. For a man who believes rest days are nothing better than cheat days and training should never stop, Kohli shared a photo of himself where he was seen working out in the gym. Rest day is a cheat day, never stop working hard. ðªð pic.twitter.com/ARPzY8Js6n — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) September 8, 2017 Taking to Twitter, the Indian captain shared his photo with a caption that read: "Rest day is a cheat day, never stop working hard". Arguably one of the most popular and highly sought-after sportpersons in the country, Kohli has taken huge strides both personally and professionally during his nine-year-old stint with Indian cricket. Reuters The 28-year-old is currently ranked no. 1 in both T20Is and ODIs. And, to top it all, he looks in the best shape of his life. If that's not perfection personified, then probably nothing will. Just like a zillion women stalking Kohli on Instagram or Twitter, anyone who has been following the Indian Test captain on social media would have surely noticed the amount of gym and training sessions the Delhi lad undertakes to do what he does best - both on and off the field. Instagram During a recent event in Delhi, Kohli had also highlighted the importance of pushing yourself when he said: "Lot of us don't actually know how far we can push ourselves. May be at times, without knowing, we are only able to realise 70 per cent of our potential. Therefore it is necessary to push yourself until you are done. For example, if I train as hard as I train now, I will possibly play for another 10 years."
  17. Ranveer Singh, as we've said earlier, is as crazy as crazy gets. In laymans terms, he doesn't really know where to draw the line. He starts with rainbow-hued sequins on his bomber jacket and ends at slipping into a goddamn condom. He's out of control and clearly, Deepika Padukone loves that. But as Eveready's OG bunny, Ranveer Singh's sartorial abilities have always stood for going beyond the horizon. Until he came into the picture, there was no one in the biz taking fashion for a spin and delivering head-to-toe excellence every single time. But talking of his recent gym outing here, we wonder what made him keep himself in check this time around. This by far really, is the only basic-ass outfit he's worn this year... © Viral Bhayani Clearly, while Mr. Singh's off-duty style is wacky as hell, his gym wear doesn't come as part of the deal. It's very classic (meaning: a track suit), is usually paired with basic T-shirts (solid coloured or sometimes, with cool-age prints) and completed with footwear that's normalcy for every man out there. Sure, he's opted for a red and high-tops, but let's give it to him—he was just trying to add personality to an otherwise relatable and ordinary workout outfit. © Viral Bhayani In conclusion, let's just say, if not the outfit, those guns are really doing it for us. Keep pumping, son!

  19. Well, we all can definitely root for the fact that Shahid Kapoor is one of the most admired and desired actors in B-town. He knows how to act, dance and flaunt his kick-ass body.

  21. While some of us find it difficult to push ourselves to the gym every morning, there are fitness buffs who hit the gym seven days a week. They train more frequently and end up being ‘over-trained'. Yes, you certainly can over train. The notion of more is always better doesn't hold true when it comes to a workout that's result oriented. There are people who train a single muscle for more than two hours and think that they'll grow bigger. You wouldn't know it but overtraining can be one of the reasons why your results have stalled. Some people even experience muscle atrophy. But how do you know that you are overtraining? Well, here are the signs. 1. You Don't Get The Same Pump Anymore © Thinkstock/Getty Images When your muscles don't recover properly, they are not able to pull in enough blood required to get a proper pump. If you think that you no longer get that same pump that you'd get earlier, it's probably because you are not giving your muscles enough time to rest and recover. Try resting the muscle and you'll realize see that you will get the same pump again. 2. Insomnia or Irregular Sleeping Patterns © Thinkstock/Getty Images When you push your body too hard, it produces more stress hormones like cortisol and epinephrine. These hormones lower your sleep quality and may even lead to sleeplessness or insomnia. To prevent this, try to reduce the intensity or frequency of your workout and get proper sleep. When your body doesn't go into deep sleep, even the production of anabolic hormones like testosterone and growth hormones declines, which leads to poor muscle growth. 3. You Feel Exhausted All The Time © Thinkstock/Getty Images A workout is supposed to make you feel better and not burn you out. If you feel tired throughout the day after you have hit the gym, it means you are pushing yourself too hard. Take a couple of days off and you will feel much better. 4. Decline in Strength © Thinkstock/Getty Images With progressive workouts, you are supposed to experience gains in your strength levels. However, if you have been experiencing a decline, you might just be overtraining. In order to have better strength levels, people train themselves way more than what their body can take. Muscles gain strength over a period of time, it's a slow process. So, if you think that you will grow faster with longer workouts then let me tell you that you won't. In fact, your strength will decline if you train your muscles too often or for too long. 5. Injured Really Often © Thinkstock/Getty Images An under-recovered muscle is a weak muscle. If you are experiencing injuries like muscle spasms or common muscle aches more often than not, then chances are that you are overtraining. Tendons and ligaments are subject to continuous inflammation with regular weight training. So, if you don't give them proper rest, they are bound to aggravate and lead to injuries. Avoid training too intensely on all days of your workout so that your ligaments and tendons can also recover from the trauma. Split your workout routine into high intensity and low intensity days.
  22. When Shahid Kapoor made his debut in Bollywood, within no time he won the hearts of many with his chocolate boy looks. And when got hitched.....many hearts were instantly broken, after all, he was loved by a huge chunk of our country. #morningpic A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Feb 21, 2017 at 8:59pm PST Well, married or not, Shahid still rules. From being an amazing actor to being a fantastic husband and now an incredible father, this man is an inspiration. And now, Shahid has given us yet another reason to look up to the superstar. A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Apr 30, 2017 at 10:55pm PDT The actor took to Instagram and shared a rugged picture of himself and people just can't stop talking about it. The ‘Rangoon' actor was seen flaunting his perfectly chiseled abs and torso, setting our screens on fire. He captioned the picture, “Favere favere kaam chaloo hai.” Favere favere kaam chaloo hai. 😘 A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Jul 6, 2017 at 10:07pm PDT Looks like the actor is working incredibly hard to get that physique. And we bet, it's not just the women but even the men that are going gaga over his transformation. A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Jan 17, 2017 at 12:03am PST It wouldn't be wrong to say that Shahid is giving a ton of Indians many fitness goals with his latest photo and inspiring many to sweat it out.

The film also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
  23. Activewear was long considered unworthy of upscale fashion, viewed as a product of necessity, not creativity, utilitarian, not elegant. As the thinking went, gyms were decidedly non-glam. But then there are personalities that prove that the latter is correct. © Viral Bhayani You know those gym wannabes – case in point: Shahid Kapoor – who roam around in ill-fitted baggy clothes that make them look like...well...d***heads? Just elevate it a notch up to haus of celeb-mania. A white tank top and charcoal grey ribbed pajamas? Like, really? As if we hadn't had enough monochrome melancholia these days. Now, whether it is the daddy dilemma or the stress of baby number two (we congratulate him on that!), taking the stress out on dull and drab clothes won't really solve the problem. © Viral Bhayani Thank God for those Nike sneakers! The eye-catching tangerine of the Swoosh is the only thing that shouts colour. © Viral Bhayani We still miss Shahid's he-day-looks, sweaty abs and coupled-with-Kareena looks but on the bright side, the only thing that catches our attention is the perfectly trimmed beard. Now, all we need is a better-styled tracksuit for next time!
  24. Disclaimer: Unless you're an A-lister and often crank up your style, you can't be subjecting yourself to this. But, know what? To hell with your opinion. #1 sexist joke or pink T-shirts as you'd call them, just found their stance in Shahid Kapoor's fashionable gym caddy. He wore it to a workout and had absolutely no effs to give. To put things in perspective, he's done a couple of things right 1) he's broken conventions of 'colours for the gym' 2) opted for a not-so-ordinary tattered T-shirt 3) paired with sweatpants, that belong to the same territory and 4) didn't shy away from wearing them in public. ©Viral Bhayani Our generic observation: Shahid enjoys being noticed. Whether it's the red-carpet, outings with baby Misha or as seen here, just a gym spotting done right—he's always, forever ahead in the game. Another big aspect to notice here, is the presence of the trend of tatters and holes through the course of his outfit. Now being worn by the likes of Sidharth Malhotra and Kartik Aaryan—Rishi Kapoor's Twitter fury AKA his most hated style move, has now found supporters in the movie business' top holders. ©Viral Bhayani In conclusion, here's a shout-out to Shahid for dressing to the gym, but for not actually looking like he's headed to the gym.
  25. Desi gym trainers have some high flying degrees - starting from a post graduate degree in how to **** biomechanics up to a degree in selling steroids and unwanted supplements to young chaps; they know everything. Their practices are just as ridiculous as are their juiced physiques. Thanks to their ignorant attitude, people are more often at the doctor's than at the gym. Injuries like slipped disc, dislocated shoulders and spondylitis have become common, when working under desi trainers. More than 80% of the total trainers working in the Indian fitness industry are still far from being certified. If your trainer is making you do these things, it's time to hire a qualified person. 1) Cardio Before Workout © YouTube A very common ritual followed in desi gyms is that they make you work on cardio before your weight training. According to desi trainers, cardio before weight training ‘warms you up'. Well, sure it does but don't keep doing it for hours. They ask their clients to run on the treadmill or use spin bikes for at least half an hour and then they push them to do weight training. By the time they are in the weights section, their energy levels are already dusted. This results in ineffective weight training. You are not able to lift as many weights as you could have, if you did weight training before cardio. The logic is simple- when you are full of energy, hit the weights. If you've got energy left, get some cardio in. 2) Hitting A Weak Body Part Everyday © YouTube Have weak biceps? Do biceps daily. This is the solution that desi trainers have for weaker muscle groups. Though their concept is simple, it's also hugely flawed. By doing this, you are hardly giving your muscles time to recover from the trauma that it received from the previous workout. Muscles don't grow when you train them. They grow when they are at rest. Rest is just as important as training. Maybe, even more in some cases. Since desi trainers don't know the concept of slow twitch fiber and fast twitch fiber or muscle imbalances, they hardly know why you have a weak muscle and how to make it grow. They think that weak muscles will only grow by lifting heavy weights daily. Now this may be true for someone who is fast twitch fiber dominant but for people who are slow twitch fiber heavy, more number of reps with lighter weights might do the trick. 3) Make you lift too heavy, too early © YouTube Another unwarranted thing that desi trainers are obsessed with is ‘beast mode'. Since a majority of them are always on the juice, they tend to push amateurs equally as hard. That's idiotic, at best. Of course they have no idea who's an amateur, a beginner, an intermediate and an expert level client. Since they lift heavy and experience gains, they are eager to make their clients lift heavy weights in every session. Desi trainers themselves are ego lifters and that's exactly what they pass on to their clients as well. Guys, beware of these desi trainers who are post graduates in Bro Science/Bullshit. Please Beware! Not every guy who has huge biceps and wears a T-shirt that has trainer written on it is a professional. More than half of these desi trainers call themselves trainers just because they work in a gym and not because they hold a degree or certification in fitness.
