A Fitness Enthusiast's Guide To Overcoming 'Fitting' Issues With Jeans

The only one to have an issue with your leg gains is your favourite pair of jeans. Don't you just love the feeling of fullness and tightness in your quads, glutes, and hamstrings after a punishing leg day session? The pain seems unbearable during, and a couple of days after the session as well, but hey, isn't that what you were aiming for? Best feeling in the world, right? In this journey of gains, though your sweatpants and track pants will be your best friends, you shall be alienated by all your favourite pairs of jeans. An all too familiar tale of gains and loss, quite literally, right? Well, say hello to Kirti Pathak, a fitness enthusiast and lover of well-fitted clothes, who tells us how to cope. (c)Picture Credits: MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Kirti knows the pain of losing a favourite pair of jeans to gains all too well. "I guess that is just the perfect example of a bittersweet feeling, you know. Your favourite pair of jeans doesn't fit you anymore, but the reason is awesome! It means those leg days are finally paying off and hell, they better! Nothing is as painful." But what's the solution, though? Yes, we learn how to move on, but does it mean we'll never get to wear jeans again? Shopping for jeans, now, is just about as painful as one of those leg days. (c)Picture Credits: MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno For those of you who haven't yet caught up on why it is such a big deal, let us get you up to speed. When you don't skip leg days, and are working those muscles all the way to gain-town, you suffer from a condition called 'awesome lower body'. But just like everything in life, it has its pros and cons. Pros being a thin waist and pumped up glutes and quads (yes!), and the cons include your jeans not fitting you. "You just need to learn how to shop. Yes, you need a little bit of practice, but you will learn. My immediate fix is this amazing invention called stretch jeans. Elasticity FTW! It fits you like a dream, you get to wear jeans, and your gains are visible to all! What's not to like? And those whining about the whole 'men and tight pants' bit, bro, you just need to not skip leg days." Picture Credits: MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno But Kirti, we still sometimes face this issue where even with stretch jeans, the thighs and glutes bits are super tight and the waist feels super loose. What to do then? "Use a belt. If you don't want to do that, find a pair with drawstrings, just like joggers. These days they are everywhere! I love how flexible the whole fashion thing is turning out to be!" Amazing! (c)Picture Credits: MensXP/Anubhav Sood / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno So there you go! No need to be skeptical about adding those extra plates on to your squat bar anymore! Thanks, Kirti! (c)MensXP '31 Days Of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

Moved By Rashid Khan's Game & Sweet Gesture, Indians Are Even Ready To Exchange Him With SRK

It's the IPL final tonight between Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad. We don't know about the result or who's going to win tonight, but Rashid Khan is already a winner for his moving gesture. Rashid Khan first scored a smashing 34 runs in 10 balls (in the crucial time) and later came to haunt the batsmen and took 3 major wickets, during the last match between SRH and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).  BCCI After KKR lost the match to SRH by 14 runs and the latter went into the finals, the 19-year-old world's No.1 T20 bowler was awarded with the well-deserved 'Man of the Match' award, for his exceptional all-round performance.           While we were recuperating from the performance of SRH's 19-year-old superstar, Rashid Khan won our hearts with his moving gesture.  BCCI Earlier this month, there was a blast during a cricket game held in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. When he was given the award, Rashid got really emotional and took the opportunity to dedicate his award to all those who lost their lives.  He reportedly said, “I want to dedicate this award to those who lost their lives in a blast during a cricket game in my hometown back home.” Rashid first received praise from Sachin Tendulkar and later Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, who called him a hero.  Always felt @rashidkhan_19 was a good spinner but now I wouldn't hesitate in saying he is the best spinner in the world in this format. Mind you, he's got some batting skills as well. Great guy. — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) May 25, 2018 Afghans take absolute pride in our hero, Rashid Khan. I am also thankful to our Indian friends for giving our players a platform to show their skills. Rashid reminds us whats best about Afg. He remains an asset to the cricketing world. No we are not giving him away. @narendramodi — Ashraf Ghani (@ashrafghani) May 25, 2018 Indian cricket lovers were moved by Rashid Khan's performance and his sweet gesture for those who died. In fact, Twitter flooded the internet with messages asking to give Rashid Khan to India.  Give Rashid Khan, Take Our Kamaal Rashid Khan. ð #KKRvsSRH #SRHvKKR https://t.co/1r3PM2CxMK — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadejaaaa) May 25, 2018 Sir..Rashid dedo... Kejriwal lelo...Wo u turn specialist hai — Digvi (@digvijayptnk28) May 25, 2018 Teen jadeja ko deke ek rashid ko dedo ashraf ghani sahab + sreesanth free. — NITISH BHARADWAJ (@CDemocrazy) May 25, 2018 Take Shahrukh Khan, Give Rashid Khan. — Ravi Mishra (@G33kBoyRavi) May 25, 2018 Jokes apart, it will be highly exciting to see who will win the match tonight – 'Thala' MS Dhoni's CSK or SunRisers Hyderabad.

Disha Patani's Tribute To Beyonce Has Us Convinced She's Taking Dance Lessons From Tiger Secretly

If I had the power to nominate the best celebrity Instagram account, I will probably pick Disha Patani. From giving fitness goals, travel goals, dance classes, selfie lessons or casually chilling with her dog; it won't be wrong to say that, for many of us, she's a reason to open Instagram every five minutes. And her recent video proves why I might be right. Instagram While we express our love for our favourite celebrities, on social media all the time; watching our celebrities do the same for others is something that always takes us by surprise. After all, it's not everyday that you see King Khan aka Shah Rukh Khan drooling over and requesting for a selfie with Cate Blanchett, Elton John or Christopher Nolan.  Recently Disha posted a video where she paid a tribute to her idol, Beyonce, by grooving to her iconic Coachella 2018 performance. Instagram She captioned the video, "Wanted to make this for a very long time, just for fun, a tribute to my idol @Beyonce." Honestly, we don't know if the rumours of her dating Tiger Shroff are true, but her perfect dance moves has me convinced that she is secretly taking dance lessons from Tiger. Seriously, can these two start their own dance classes where they teach us how to rock that difficult choreography?  Wanted to make this for a very long time, just for fun, a tribute to my idol @beyonce â¤ï¸ thanks @jamesdance_ for teaching me the block and @shariquealy for the cool editð¤ð¤â¤ï¸ #beyonce #beychella A post shared by disha patani (paatni) (@dishapatani) on May 25, 2018 at 8:14pm PDT Jokes apart, these moves were taught by choreographer James and Disha even thanked him for teaching her these moves. This is not the first time and definitely not the last time when Disha is flaunting her effortless moves. Earlier she posted her version of Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You', which we still can't get off our minds.  Apart from dancing, Disha is currently gearing up for 'Bharat', where she will be seen alongside Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra.

9 Hollywood Stars Who Basically Gave Birth To Themselves

My name is Hinakshi Bhatia and I'm currently out of ideas. Yesterday, I did a ground-breaking story about how kids look exactly like their parents. Since that is such earth-shattering news, I thought a Hollywood version of the same thing was also required – because we don't discriminate – so, here is a list of all the star kids who look exactly like their parents. 1. Reese Witherspoon and Ava Elizabeth Phillippe I feel like this mother-daughter duo is the first one on every list like this, so obviously had to start with this. 2. Jay Z and Blue Ivy Blue Ivy is actually a perfect mix of Beyoncé and Jay Z but she looks almost like Jay Z at this age, it's uncanny. 3. DJ Khaled and Ashad DJ Khaled – the guy who refuses to go down on his wife – and his son look scarily alike, however, we hope he has different views on certain issues when he grows up. 4. Will Smith and Jaden Smith Both of them are cool, both of them have their own unique social media presence and both of them look alike. 5. Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin Even after that unfortunate name, Apple is one of the luckiest kids to have such good-looking parents and she's growing up to look exactly like her beautiful mother. 6. Angelina Jolie and Shiloh The exact same features, especially the cheekbones! 7. David Beckham and Romeo Beckham This is one beautiful and genetically blessed family and I'm mad that I'm not a part of it. 8. Demi Moore and Rumer Willis The fact that they're not twins and are actually mother and daughter is messing with my head. 9. John Legend and Luna John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's daughter looks exactly like how John looked as a kid.

How To Ask A Girl Out On A Date After Getting Her Number

If you've just gotten yourself a fine date, it's rather thrilling isn't it? By that, I mean you've scored her number and now you're super excited, but you're also wondering what the hell to do next! While you've mastered the art of flirting with a girl and getting her number, you're a little confused on how to carry forth the interaction. Don't worry, I'll get you through that with some faith and patience! © Thinkstock Getting to know someone takes ample amount of patience and you need to be ready for that. You can't work in extremes, wherein you're a gentleman when you meet her and a persuasive freak once you do have her contact deets! Here's how you carry on communication with someone you've just met! Take Your Time So, now that you have her number, don't rush into calling her and spoiling things thereon. Take your time to mull over what you'd like to say to her. Whether you like to ask her out for a coffee next or a drink. What kind of a conversation would you like to have with her etc. It also seems quite desperate to call immediately after you guys have met. I mean, if you want to do that, go for it, but I think you should start slow. © Thinkstock Find A Good Time To Message Or Call If you're the shy variety, maybe text her instead of calling her? This way, you will dodge the awkwardness that might come about over a phone call, with her. Don't be incessant while messaging her either. Send her a text maybe in the morning or in the evening, when you know she's free. If you call her during the day, you might be disturbing her at work, or impinging on her time. So call her at a time you know she's free to answer your calls. © Thinkstock Do Not Send Her Forwards, Yet I know you're dying to show off your meme collection to her but it's too soon to be having that kinda banter! First, prep yourself for a date, spend some time getting to know her and then you can meme away your time with her! Maybe keep your texts light and easy for now. Like for instance, ask her how her day was, or a relatable question you really want her to answer. © Thinkstock No Sexting! Yes, asking for nudes is possibility the worst thing you can do when you've just gotten someone's number! So don't do it! Maybe if you started off with dirty talk then with proper consent, you can sext her as and how you like, but if she hasn't initiated anything, you shouldn't either. © Thinkstock Take The Conversation Towards A Possible Date It's time, after giving it time, to ask her out on a date. It should be casual and not forced and definitely, confident. Try not to stutter or be short of words. All you have to do, is figure out a nice evening for the two of you, plan it all and give her a call. Don't call her without a plan in place and don't ask her 'what do you feel like doing'. She rather you take her out to a nice place and have a good time. © Thinkstock So, the next time you end up with a girl's number in your hand, you know exactly how to go about a date with her!

These Are The Top 5 Smartphones in India Under Rs 40,000

The high-end premium range in India has gotten even more competitive, because of recent new entrants like OnePlus 6 and Honor 10. All the smartphone manufacturers have released their flagships for the year and we now have a pretty good idea of what the benchmarks of a good premium phone are now.  The latest fad among Android OEMs is the notch and having a maximum screen-to-body ratio. The camera segment isn't very heated now, because all mobiles manage to capture decently good pictures. The sub 40,000 range in India isn't expected to offer the bleeding edge of technology but can be a perfect package of features for users.  Today we've compiled a list of best smartphones in India under Rs 40,000:  1. OnePlus 6: © YouTube The OnePlus was launched this week in India and it is undoubtedly the best smartphone you can buy. The device is the perfect package of a good display, premium design, proficient camera and respectable software. OnePlus has taken software very seriously this time around and fully supports Project Treble, meaning you can easily install Android P Beta and expect to get timely updates in the future. Oxygen OS is a very tasteful cherry on the top, offering some unique features like customizable soft keys, gaming do-not-disturb mode and app locker.  In terms of hardware, it runs on the latest Snapdragon 846 SoC coupled with 6/8GB of RAM and three variants of storage - 64GB, 128GB & 256GB. OnePlus has also increased the screen-to-body ratio as well as bumped up the camera. Portrait Mode has been drastically improved thanks to better hardware and continuous software updates. Overall, you don't have to worry about anything after buying this phone.  Buy from Amazon.in 2. Honor 10:  © MensXP The Honor was launched in China a few weeks back and has been in high demand ever since. Honor launched the device globally last week and the design is among the best we've seen so far. It takes a lot of inspiration from its elder sibling, the Huawei P20 Pro.  The device runs on a HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC that has a dedicated NPU for onboard AI features. The rear camera is a dual camera setup consisting of a 16 + 24-megapixel camera and a 24-megapixel front-facing camera. The camera can detect the objects in the viewfinder and adjust the camera setting like exposure, focus speed, and ISO automatically for the best possible picture quality.  The battery is rated at 3400mAh, which is a little small when compared to the competition, but manages to get you through at least one day of heavy usage.  Buy from Flipkart 3. Nokia 7 Plus: © MensXP Nokia 7 Plus successfully continues the legacy of previous generation Nokia phones. The build quality is the best we've seen with metals and the finish is ultra-premium. It is based on Android One program which ensures that the latest Android builds are directly sent out by Google. If you're looking for a phone with an exceptionally good lifespan, look no further.  On the front, it sports 6-inch display and runs on the Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the rear, it has a 12 + 13-megapixel dual camera setup and a 16-megapixel front camera. Backing all this hardware, is a 3800mAh battery which Nokia claims can get you through 2 days of usage. What matters the most here, is that the device is priced considerably lower than the competition thus crowning itself as the best mid-range you can buy right now.  But from Amazon.in 4. Samsung Galaxy S8:  © MensXP This was Samsung's flagship for 2017, but it doesn't mean the device has lost its charm or abilities. It is now available for a much lower price and still holds the crown of being one of the most beautifully crafted phones. It sports a 5.8-inch edge to edge with minor curves on the side. The back is made of glass and the chin is considerably smaller.  Powering this unit is an Exynos 8895 SoC that performs on par with the Snapdragon 835 chipset and sometimes even better. On the back is a single 12-megapixel sensor along with an 8-megapixel front camera. Backing all this hardware is a 3000mAh battery, for authentication the device also supports Iris scanning along with a fingerprint scanner.  Buy from Amazon.in 5. Mi Mix 2: © MensXP The Mi Mix 2 is the best looking phone in the sub-40K segment. The phone feature a beautiful bezel-less display, which goes almost edge to edge and only has a small chin. The performance is quite good as it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and features 6GB RAM. The phone also has one of the best battery life we have seen on a sub-40K phone in recent times. Buy from Flipkart

Meet The Fastest Guitarists In The World Who Can Strum Their Guitars At Superhuman Speed

If there's one music instrument that everyone tries to play at least once in their lifetime, it's the guitar. Mastering it is no easy feat. Do you know who is the fastest guitar player in the world? There have been many contenders.  In 2011, guitarist John Taylor was recognized the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's fastest guitar player. The American guitar teacher played Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's “Flight of the Bumblebee” at an impressive 600 beats per minute.  Beating the guitar teacher at his game, then appeared Taylor Sterling from Australia, who reached 999 BPM. Yes, he still has fingers.   Just when we thought no one could outdo this figure, American guitarist Daniel Himebauch managed to play at 1300 BPM, during a benefit concert for the first responders of 9/11.  Turns out this category has been so disputed, Guinness Book of World Records discontinued the category itself. It issued out a statement explaining its decision:  “This record category is currently rested due to the fact that the quality of performance (i.e. clarity of individual notes etc) is dramatically reduced at these speeds. Unless the performance is flawless, it is not a record. We are currently consulting music experts in order to re-open this category.” Ever since, there have been a few musicians vying for the spot of the fastest guitar player in the world, but since the official category has been now dissolved, there is no official title anymore. That hasn't stopped aspiring musicians from trying though.  Nirvana Bista, a 17-year-old guitarist from Nepal who lives in Mussoorie, claimed to be the fastest guitar player according to a record he set in 2015. Indeed, the boy pulled off a rather incredible feat when he played “Flight of the Bumblebee” at 1600 BMP.  What's the highest number of beats per minute you can play?

Quit Smoking © Thinkstock Researchers at Tel Aviv measured the IQs of 20,000 men between the ages of 18 and 21 enrolled in the Israeli Army. There they found out that people who smoked more than a pack a day averaged a 90 on their IQ tests, while that for a nonsmoker was 101.  From several other studies, it has been concluded that years of tobacco use appears to dull mental performance.

5 Really Expensive Pieces Worn By Indian Celebrities This Month

As the rule of life goes, celebrities (like in every other locale in the world) make a lot of money. Not denying that they're hard-working individuals, but they're celebrities for a reason — and they must receive their due. And since they earn in millions, they also drop them on a lot of merch. Expensive, iconic and some dope merch, that most of us lesser mortals can't afford. But that's why they're them, and we are we.  To give you an idea of what a dream-salary looks like, we're summing up the most expensive pieces worn by Indian celebrities this month, whether at the airport or at home. Time to work even harder. 1. Gucci's Ace High-Top White Sneakers © Viral Bhayani Spotted in Mumbai, while choking himself in a sweatshirt in the humidity of Mumbai, actor Kartik Aaryan was snapped in a pair of Gucci's deal-breaking ace high-top sneakers, with red and blue shiny leather details and a gold embroidered bee on top of the brand's staple web stripe.  Price: $730 (Rs. 50,000 approx.) © Far Fetch 2. Balenciaga's Oversized Logo-Print Shell And Ripstop Jacket © Viral Bhayani While leaving Mumbai for the IIFA press con in New Delhi this month, Karan Johar decided to slip into an over-sized neon colour blocked jacket with a brand's moniker across the chest. Cut out of rip-stop and lightweight shell, these are the pieces that stellar #AirportStyle is made of. Price: $1,150 (Rs. 78,600 approx.) © Far Fetch 3. Louis Vuitton x Supreme's Christopher Backpack Epi PM Red Backpack © Viral Bhayani Another airport spotting, another expensive accessory. TV actor/host, Maniesh Paul clearly, has everything going for him right now, because really — this pop red backpack needs a hefty bank balance, in order for anyone to cop it. The piece features an exclusive durable Epi leather (that debuted as Louis Vuitton's first permanent leather collection in 1985) and is a rare, limited edition piece. Price: $3,900 (Rs. 2,66,000 approx.) © Far Fetch 4. Dolce and Gabbana's Portofino Sneakers © Viral Bhayani No surprises here, since the guy's now a part of the 100 crore club, he's all for some really expensive gear. Celebrating Valentine's Day a little late, Kartik Aaryan's second stint with expensive airport fashion, was a fine leather pair of sneakers, with red patches in patent leather and blaring brand-words on either sides. Price: $820 (Rs. 55,000 approx) © Dolce and Gabbana 5. Supreme's F/W'17 Box Logo Black Hooded Sweatshirt © Viral Bhayani As it is with rare pieces, if you've lost out on the first few pieces that sold at the retail price, you have to pay an inflated MRP to cop. Take for example, Ranbir Kapoor's plain, safe black Supreme hoodie, that he took for a spin to an airport terminal recently. While this may be a big expensive layering piece, the actor's no newbie to this world. In fact, he's always a big investor in some dope (read: expensive) street wear.   Price: $168 (Rs. 11,480 approx.) Last Bid According To StockX: $818 (Rs. 56,000 approx.) © Far Fetch

Sergio Ramos Becomes The 'Most Hated Man' After Injuring Mo Salah & Then Laughing At Him

Player of the Season and Golden Boot winner in the recently-concluded edition of the Premier League, Mohamed Salah has been nothing short of brilliant in the past one year. If Liverpool has gone on to become the team we know today, Salah has been as pivotal as their coach Jurgen Klopp in their success this year.

Thus, when the Reds locked horns with Real Madrid in the Champions League final, it's needless to say that their fans would have once again expected Salah to lead from the front. And, that's exactly what the Liverpool talisman. Combining with Sadio Mane and Firminho, the Egyptian - with his speed and quick exchanges - helped his side dominate and penetrate the Madrid defence early on. Twitter Struggling to contain the Reds' front three, Madrid needed a quick solution to get back in the game. While many would have liked that solution to be technical or even a tactical change, no one would have expected it to be as dirty as it eventually turned out to be.

The 30th minute of the game saw Sergio Ramos throwing a ridiculous challenge at Salah. The Madrid captain was seen hooking Salah by the arm and then dragging him sideways. The momentum forced Salah to land awkwardly and, as a result, the Liverpool forward dislocated his shoulder to the sheer displeasure of his fans.   The DIRTY play by Sergio Ramos to injure Mohamed Salah in the Champions League Final.

After some consultations with the physician, Salah tried to carry on, but eventually realised he won't be able to continue further. Salah left the pitch in tears with his hopes of playing for Egypt at the 2018 World Cup in Russia now in jeopardy.

The replays of the tackle had already made Ramos 'Public Enemy No 1', but while Cristiano Ronaldo was seen consoling Salah, the Madrid captain was shamelessly caught laughing and smiling at the Liverpool star as he walked off the field. "Ramos amused there, not sure what's going on there," football pundit Gary Lineker said as the footage was played on BT Sport.

"He (Ramos) was mildly irritating at other times in the match as well. Ramos, extraordinary player that he is, can be like that," he added. On the other hand, football fans, too, condemned Ramos' unprofessional conduct on the social media.

Cristiano Ronaldo Shamelessly Mocks Gareth Bale After His Match-Winning Performance

Ahead of this season's coveted Champions League final, Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah were being looked upon as the star players who could potentially turn the tide in favour of their respective teams in Kiev. When Real Madrid and Liverpool did lock horns, Salah's outing was cut short by an unfortunate injury, making many believe that it was probably Ronaldo's night. But, it wasn't.

Salah's exit from the pitch did open the chances for Real Madrid, but Ronaldo was clearly not up to the mark. He missed a crucial chance to score for his side in 74th minute after Andy Robertson made a great tackle to deny the Portuguese. He was well marked and often struggled to find spaces in the Liverpool defence.

But, while Ronaldo was struggling to live up to his billing, his teammate Gareth Bale exceeded expectations with a sublime performance. Coming on for Isco in the 61st minute, Bale restored Madrid's lead with a gravity-defying 'bicycle kick' that went straight into the top-left corner of the goal. Gareth Bale with one of the best goals in Champions League history!. #ChampionsLeagueFinal #RealMadrid pic.twitter.com/HYYMShwKAT — Zack Hümmel (@zhummm) May 26, 2018
His introduction injected pace into the game, while Bale's passing made Madrid's movements more swift. After putting his side in front, the Welshman scored his second goal and sealed the game 3-1 in favour of Los Blancos via an audacious 35-yards strike. For a man who cut a frustrating figure after being used mainly as a substitute this season, Bale's performance didn't just propel Madrid to their 13th Champions League title, but it also silenced his critics.

While everyone was understandably going gaga over Bale's individual brilliance in the summit clash, one man in particular didn't appear to be impressed. Ronaldo, who himself scored a 'bicycle kick' goal against Juventus in the quarterfinals earlier this season, claimed that the Champions League needs to be re-named as he celebrated his fifth UCL title win. Twitter Asked if he had any disappointment for failing to score in the coveted final, with Gareth Bale claiming the spotlight for his overhead kick, Ronaldo stunned everyone by replying: "Who? Maybe the Champions League should change its name to the CR7 Champions League. Who has more Champions League titles and more goals? I have won five and I am the top goalscorer again, so I cannot be sad".

Unable to score earlier, Ronaldo was also visibly distraught in the 85th minute when Bale, rather than passing the ball to CR7, went for his hat-trick, only for Lovren to make a wonderful last-man tackle to eventually deny the Welshman. Here's a look at what fans think about Bale's performance and Ronaldo's flop-show:   Cristiano Ronaldo will have nightmares about that Gareth Bale goal — Troll Football (@TrollFootball) May 26, 2018

Priceless Reactions That Prove Gareth Bale's 'Bicycle Kick' Was One of UCL Final's Greatest Goals

Whether you're a fan of Real Madrid or not, the artistry in their goal-scoring ability is something every football fan would laud. The Los Blancos cannot only score rapidly, but they seem to have mastered the art of scoring amazing goals over the years. But, it seems that the Spanish giants tend to keep the best of their goals for the UEFA Champions League.

Many would remember Zinedine Zidane's brilliant left-footed volley against Bayer Leverkusen which powered Real Madrid to the 2002 Champions League title following a 2-1 win in the final. More recently, it was Cristiano Ronaldo whose 'bicycle kick' wonder goal saw the Juventus fans applauding his effort from the stands in the quaterfinals.

On 27th May, Real Madrid's romance with amazing goals continued. While both Zidane and Ronaldo were present in this season's final, it was Gareth Bale - the man who was initially dropped from the Starting XI - who made the summit clash against Liverpool his own. Twitter Karim Benzema had already justified his selection ahead of Bale after capitalising on a lapse of concentration from Reds' keeper Loris Karius whose error cost his side the opening goal in the 51st minute. However, just four minutes later, Sadio Mane levelled the proceedings for Liverpool following a corner.

With their one goal lead up in flames, Madrid were looking to pull ahead when manager Zidane brought Bale on for Isco in the 61st minute. Entrusted with the responsibility of making an impact, Bale took just three minutes to restore the lead for Madrid. And, he did so in ways beyond logic and understanding. This goal by Bale is out of control!! #UCLFinal pic.twitter.com/BYeEz8HEtH — All Sports ALL Day (@SportDebates365) May 26, 2018
Receiving the ball from Marcelo, Bale had his back towards goal as he plunged in the air unleased the ambitious 'bicycle kick'. While it takes more than just practice to get it right in a live game, Bale couldn't have pulled it off any better. It had perfect height and incredibly accurate leverage which sent the ball crashing into the top-left corner of the goal.

The Welshman struck again in the 83rd minute when he smashed a long-range effort which eventually went through the hands of nervous Karius. While his second goal eventually sealed a 3-1 win for his side, it was his gravity-defying wonder goal earlier in the game that earned all the plaudits before being hailed as one of the greatest goals in a Champions League final. It's Too Hot To Handle Zidane's reaction to Bale wonder goal always amazing, henhad a similar reaction to Ronaldo strike in Turin #UCLfinal #UCLFinal2018 pic.twitter.com/wwftf7XQqF — Mwafrika Asili (@MwafrikaAsili) May 26, 2018 One Of The Best Of All Times What a ridiculous goal from @GarethBale11.

That may be the best goal I've ever seen... good timing as well like! — Gary Neville (@GNev2) May 26, 2018 This One's Just For Fun When Bale comes off the bench to score and overhead kick winner!! ð±ð± pic.twitter.com/PCSJMjilLE — liam rolland (@LiamRolland) May 26, 2018

The Rock Spoke About His Battle With Depression & Urged Men To Open Up About Their Mental Health

We might think that depression has mostly got to do with financial woes, failure or even heartbreak, which is true to an extent. But mental health doesn't discriminate and attacks a certain section of the society or a particular gender. It is a common myth that celebrities have a beautiful life and are hence not affected by anything remotely associated with depression. However it is not true. It is a fight we all fight in our life and our favourite celebs also deal with the same kind of emotional trauma like us.Dwayne Johnson, the tough guy and 'The Rock' for all of us. looks like the ultimate badass and a real-life Hercules. However, in the past, he has often spoken about his traumatic childhood, his struggle-filled life and his fight to protect his troubled mother as well. In a recent interview, the actor spoke about his battle with depression and how men need to open up about their vulnerabilities and fight depression. "Regardless of who you are or what you do for a living or where you come from, it doesn't discriminate, we all kind of go through it. If I could share a little bit of it and if I could help somebody I'm happy to do it. The key thing that I found was the most important thing about that, talking about my past in terms of depression, is the revelation and for us to be OK and embracing ... especially us as guys, as men. There's just a DNA, a wiring in us and a constitution that oftentimes doesn't let us talk about when we're scared or vulnerable or things like that.It's kind of like what's been deemed as 'toxic masculinity'. You've got to talk about it and you're not alone. I was an only child and I kept that bottled in, deep, deep. It wasn't good, so happy to share my story”, he said.   Hawaii bound. Let's get to work my friends. This one's special.. #JungleCruise A post shared by therock (@therock) on May 8, 2018 at 12:53am PDT   In Bollywood, Deepika Padukone hit the headlines a few years ago when she openly spoke about her battle with depression and how being a celebrity didn't make it easier for her. When celebs raise such issues, it gives hope to people struggling with the same problem, that talking and seeking a solution is a very normal thing to do.So if you think you need to open up about some issues that have been plaguing your life and your mind, then find your friend or even seek a therapist, but don't keep it bottled up. As Dwayne says, "you've got to talk about it."

How Much Protein To Have In One Sitting To Build Maximum Muscle

If I had a dollar for every time someone said you can't absorb more than 20 to 25 grams of protein in a sitting, I would have been close to being stashed.  This 'myth' is probably what gave rise to the misconception of having to eat 6-8 meals a day if you are looking to build muscle. One of the reasons you see iron-heads carrying tupperware everywhere. The funny part is, no one knows where this 20-25 gram cap originated from. This 'rule' of not eating more than 20-25 gram protein in a sitting has been followed by professional bodybuilders and fitness enthusiast for as long as anyone can remember. Explanations ranging from excess protein being wasted to too much protein being harmful for kidneys, there have been many senseless reasons given without any backing whatsoever, but luckily we now have research to tell us how much can we eat in a sitting and no, 'excess” protein will not be wasted'.  An analysis of the collective research on the subject of protein utilization done by Alan Aragon and Brad Schoenfeld concluded that lifters interested in maximizing muscle protein synthesis should consume protein at a minimum rate of 0.4 g/kg per meal, spread across a minimum of 4 meals, in order to reach a minimum daily goal of 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram. For people who eat 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram, the number is 0.55 g/kg per meal, likewise spread across a minimum of 4 meals. Here's the research.  So, if we take an average 80 kg man, the calculations would be- Minimum recommendation (0.4 g/kg/meal): 32 grams of protein per meal Maximum recommendation (0.55 g/kg/meal): 44 grams of protein per meal
This means, the experts have been heavily incorrect in the past in saying that you cannot digest more than 20-25 grams of protein per meal because the opposite seems to be true and you should be looking at eating more protein in every sitting and increase your protein intake in general. Eating more protein is better when compared other macronutrients because of high TEF (thermic effect of food) and other metabolic advantages such as faster recovery. Although I am not recommending skipping any macronutrients in favor of eating more protein but if you have a big buffer of calories and you can cut down on either fat or carbs a little without any discomfort, then doing so seems like a good idea. So much so that a study done be Jose Antonio found that subjects consuming higher than recommended amount of protein gained very less fat as compared to people who were not. The high amount of protein did not have any negative effects on the kidneys or any other body functions. take an indeth look here.   Take home points- There is no such term as “excess protein” and if you eat protein above a certain amount, it would not go to waste. The higher the intake of protein, the better it is for you when trying to make changes in body composition, whether trying to lose fat or gain weight. Shoot for around 1.6 to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. High protein intake does not affect renal (kidney) functions in healthy individuals. If one is already suffering from kidney issues, consulting with a medical practitioner before deciding on the protein intake is the best thing to do.

5 Things Every College Grad Must Know To Ensure A Successful Career

Steve Jobs did not always want to be a tech entrepreneur. He himself was not passionate about technology but was passionate about western history, calligraphy, and dance. He followed his heart and these things eventually helped him build the Apple Computers in one way or the other.  Steve said, “You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it.” 1. Do what you love or else at least start with what you like. © BrainyQuote Doing what you love is often easier said than done, but it is actually important to understand this here. Many of my friends are doing IT jobs that they hate each and every day. They did not choose to be an IT engineer and now they are sulking and cursing it every moment of their life. What they did wrong is that, they did not choose what they wanted to do and let circumstances chose their way.  You do not want to be regretting every morning going to a job that will compose of a major portion of your day. Start with what you like, you do not need to love it. If you do so, you will at least not be wasting your life. This way when you follow your heart you will eventually come across something that you actually love doing and which can also pay your bills.  Don't get trapped in the corporate loop. If you just choose the money keeping your happiness at stake, you will keep grinding yourself until the day you are completely broken from inside.  2. You can always reinvent yourself.  I did my graduation in engineering but I had this love for writing and I followed my heart. Everyone around me suggested me take up an engineering job or prepare for a government job, but I had promised myself that this time I will not let anyone decide my future. I repeatedly said to myself that I will begin with what I enjoy learning and doing. The work is still in progress and I am still exploring more options and so can you at any point in life, just keep looking. 3. Never put off your big dreams © Thinkstock Even though you can always reinvent yourself, do not pass up opportunities to do things that might be harder to do later in life. If want to go for Masters or study abroad then don't wait up. Do it now. If you put off your Masters, then you might settle too long in a job or into a relationship and it will become harder for you to go back. This is true. As you grow and start earning, your family gets dependent on you, you start planning to get married, buy a house or a car and all these things can make it difficult for you to pursue your further education. In most cases, it is wise if you do it now. 4. If you say it, you can do it. © BrainyQuote If you believe you can do it, then you can actually do it. If you say to yourself, that you want to be earning in dollars by the end of next 2 years or want to start your own business as soon as you graduate, then believe me, you can do it. If you say so, then you begin planning your life and that's how it gets started. I have seen many people who are living their life to the fullest. It takes hard work but you can do it. Those who said this to themselves actually did it and so can you.  5. No one will ever care as much about your career as you. Your parents, your friends even your other half, no one can ever care about your career as much as you can. They can not do it even if they wish to. It is not under their control. It is only you who will know what you will be happy doing.

How To Look Sharp If You&apos;re A Shabby Bengali Boy

Just a couple of disclaimers before we are barraged with insults for 'insinuating that Bengalis are shabby': No, all Bengali boys are not shabby. No, we are not associating shabbiness as a trait with Bengali boys specifically. No, one doesn't have to belong to a particular caste, creed, race, nationality, sexuality, gender, or language group to be shabby. But as a person who is Bengali and grew up amongst Bengalis, I can assure you, and you'd agree, that we as a group, collectively don't really pay attention to how we (the men, specifically) look. That is just not an area that is discussed or cared about, at all. Primarily because of our preoccupation with intellectual pursuits, perhaps? Or perhaps, because we just don't have the same affinity towards anything superficial as we do with subjects that require us to delve deep? Or the fact that we always have preferred a mental workout over a physical one? Bengali men have quintessentially been trained to enjoy a stimulating read, or indulge in a session of animated 'Adda' that eventually gets 'Jome Kheer' after their 'Bikeler Ghum' with the indispensable 'Chaa-Biskoot'. Shopping, salon, and gym - who has time for these after that load of awesomeness? No one's to blame, really. It is what it is. But here is a hard-to-swallow pill: because of the above, most Bengali men grow up to be shabby (strictly going by appearance). Yes, I count myself in that group. Anyway, let's try to fix that in a few easy, very doable steps. 1. Groom your hair and beard Usually, we mostly just go to the salon and surrender ourselves. Homies, it's YOUR hair and YOUR beard. The guy in the salon doesn't care. You should put a little effort into what styles can look good on you, and experiment a little, till you find the perfect hairstyle and the perfect look for yourself. Take responsibility. Also, no matter how 'cool' you are, an unkempt beard will always be uncool. © Thinkstock 2. Be open-minded while shopping for clothes Shopping for clothes, for us, mostly just start and end with 'shirt-pants' or 't-shirts' and 'jeans'. What I am trying to say here is that we are supremely unimaginative and laidback when it comes to clothes. We always go for the same old boring cuts and colours because we have always worn them and hence know they are 'safe'. One advice: Experiment! Experiment with new silhouettes, new colours, new ways of pairing garments. No, they won't work all the time and yes, sometimes you will screw up, but that's how you will discover your personal brand of style that will get rid of the general mundanity, and of course, the shabbiness, off you. © Thinkstock 3. Shoes No, you cannot be wearing those chunky black leather shoes or that pair of velcro sandals (please, we beg you). Here are the essentials: A pair of smart formal shoes that are not chunky and not pointy, a pair of dressy brogues, a pair of loafers for those awkward family gatherings, and several pairs of sneakers that will form the base for your future sneaker collection. And a pair of 'ghorer choti', that strictly shall not come out of the house. Shoes are expensive, yes, but they are an investment if you know how to take care of them. Plus, you don't have to buy everything at once. © Thinkstock 4. Accessories Invest in a good watch (one that will go with both formal and casual outfits, or buy multiple) and a smart pair of sunglasses (just go for a pair of aviators if you are not confident about other styles). They will go a long way in giving you an edge over everyone else. Also, a bit of a controversial point, but please get rid of the repulsive-looking bunches of 'tabij' and 'koboch'? Unless you believe they are actually helping you change your luck, of course. © Thinkstock 5. Pay attention to the seemingly trivial things Tuck in what needs to be tucked in, and leave what needs to be left out. Figure out the ideal number of buttons to be kept undone for formal and casual outfits. Figure out the ideal length of your trousers, and how much needs to be cropped. Find out what sleeve length looks flattering on you when folded. Buy concealed socks to be worn with sneakers. Get a belt that is not long enough to go around your waist twice. Invest in good underwear. © Thinkstock 6. Skincare and general cleanliness Use a facewash. Bathe properly. Use deodorant. You know, baby steps. © Thinkstock That's all. Now you're all ready to be a 'Hot Bong Boy'. You're welcome.

5 Habits That Can Help Anyone Up Their Game At Work, According To Science

Isn't it astounding that a few simple habits like exercising, reading and playing a sport can have such a huge positive impact on your brain and lifestyle? These are the kind of fun activities that can solve some bigger problems for us in our life, only if we are aware of these benefits and consciously aware of their effects. As far as our human nature is concerned, we do not like to believe anything until it is scientifically proven, let alone including those habits in our schedule. In fact, that is absolutely fine. Here we are backing them up with the facts and studies, so it becomes easy for you to believe and adapt them to your lifestyle so you can up your game at work. 1. Learn A New Language © Thinkstock Learning a new language has innumerable benefits, some of which include improved analytical, cognitive, and memory skills. According to a 2016 University of Edinburgh study, when one starts learning a new language their mental awareness starts increasing irrespective of their age. This way you can grasp things faster and process them even faster.  Mark Zuckerberg himself knows Mandarin Chinese, Hebrew, Latin, French, English and Ancient Greek. Do you wonder how he finds time to learn so many languages in his busy schedule? Here is a list of 5 of the easiest languages to learn if you are already fluent in English.  2.  Learn How To Cook © Thinkstock It is an activity that requires planning, preparation, and execution, which basically improves your cognitive skills. Chopping, grinding and washing actively demands good hand-eye coordination and concentration. Though it may look like a hefty task at first, it does give you an instant sense of accomplishment. According to Oregon State University's Linus Pauling Institute study cooking also improves your memory and boosts alertness. 3. Read Whenever You Can © Thinkstock Reading something new keeps your mind fresh, gives you a topic for healthy discussion over the table and if by chance, you are more of an introvert, it also acts as a door where you can learn from others experiences. Reading fiction has its own advantages where it improves your brain's connectivity and how it functions. When you read, it increases your intelligence, boosts your brain power, relaxes your mind and makes you more empathetic.   4. Exercise  © Thinkstock According to Harvard Medical School reports, if you practice Tai Chi, along with yoga, it improves your mental clarity and induces relaxation. Such exercises also help maintain focus, energy, and composure at work. Here are 13 proven ways that can help you develop a laser-like focus.  5. Explore Your Artistic Side © Thinkstock This is what Albert Einstein's son had to say about his father's one habit, "Whenever he felt that he had come to the end of the road or was in a difficult situation in his work, he would take refuge in music, and that would usually resolve all his difficulties." The same goes for Steve Jobs. He used to take long walks for the same purpose and when Thomas Alva Edison would get stuck with a difficult problem, instead of focusing intently on it, he took a power nap. These are several different ways of switching to your diffused mode where your mind behaves more creative while looking for a solution.  For you, it could be drawing, learning a new instrument like guitar, piano or any other thing that will help you get into your diffused, creative mode.

A 22-Year-Old Indian Talks About How Denim Has Always Had His Back

For someone who's a sports-enthusiast and a stylish one at that, denim makes for a major part of his life — the world's most versatile and practical fabric. The idea is simple, whether you're on the field or at a luncheon, the importance of a comfortable (yet terrific) menswear move is vital. Globally worn in endless variants and multiple forms on every body type, since denim is a breakthrough flex to consider anyway, 22-year-old Indian Gunveet Singh Dang too, hardly begs to differ here. Only difference? His faith in the fabric is a hell lot more, that he calls denim his best-est friend in life (even his 2 AM buddy). For '31 Days Of Denim', he etches his relationship with denim for the first very time on MensXP.com and needless to say, gives us a lot of style takeaways. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood, Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Your first ever denim purchase? A denim shirt! And well, it still has a place in my closet and is undoubtedly, the best denim piece I've owned till date.  What's your relationship with denim? I think we're best friends; it has always had my back (even at the last minute). Denim or food? Eating food while wearing jeans. Sounds fair, doesn't it? Does slipping into denim depend upon your mood? I think, the best part about slipping into denim, is that it doesn't depend upon a particular mood. You can wear it at any time, anywhere, regardless of your state of mind. Dark wash or light wash jeans? Light wash; it compliments my penchant for light/pastel colours better. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood, Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno How often do you wash your jeans? Every week, once I'm done wearing them at least 3-4 times. Ripped or distressed? Distressed! Three must-have denim pieces for men? Light wash jeans, a pair of shorts and a denim shirt (to use as jacket) in the face of summer layering.  How do you take denim from AM to PM? Simply throw on a jacket in the evening, irrespective of the kind of jeans you're wearing. © MensXP/Anubhav Sood, Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno The perfect denim outfit for Summer 2018 is...  Light-wash slim-fit jeans paired with a pastel T-shirt/a printed shirt, and topped off with a summer jacket (preferably white in colour). Perfect for your next brunch outing! Slim, relaxed or skinny-fitted jeans? Slim. Ever tried re-purposing denim? Since I'm into the manufacturing of fabric anyway, I'm all for style experiments in life. As for denim, yes, I once tried throwing in some patchwork on my jeans.  © MensXP/Anubhav Sood, Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno A denim memory you can never forget... I had recently starting chatting up with a girl on Instagram and decided to take her out on a date to a music concert. Not to forget, we also decided that we'd go pre-drinking before eading to the venue. Of course, things went exactly as planned. Until, we reached the concert arena and I was parking my car, and she decided to puke all over my jeans. Now, we all know how that ended (no pun intended).  Creative Direction: Santu Misra Styling: Siddharth Batra Assisted By: Sowrav Bhowmik Fashion Assistant: Rohan Kwatra Photographer: Anubhav Sood Hair & Make-Up: Shallu Chandla Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno

Top 5 Soundbars Under Rs. 10,000 In India For The Ultimate Home Theatre Experience

Televisions have been getting slimmer and more compact as the years' pass. We've reached a point where even 4K panels are now available for as cheap as 40,000 in India. Sony's Bravia range has been an industry trendsetter followed by Samsung's inputs on QLED followed by LG. While the displays are getting better and better, the audio department hasn't progressed a lot.  While the inbuilt speakers are great for day to day usage, they often lack bass and it tends to muddle when it gets busy. This is the main reason why investing in a good soundbar is a good choice. You experience a true-surround sound system without the hassle and frustration of wires and plug points. Although they cannot compete with home theatre systems, sound bar speakers are actually better alternatives than your TV's inbuilt speakers. We've compiled a list of soundbars you can buy in India under Rs. 10,0000:  1. Philips HTL2163B/12 Bluetooth:  © Philips It has a 15 watts per channel output through a woofer and along with a passive subwoofer, the sound quality is well balanced. It can stream wireless music via Bluetooth so you never have to worry about wires or connections as well. It also supports Dolby Digital for top-notch surround sound experience and realistic spatial cues.  Multiple choices of inputs allow you to easily play your music directly from your iPod/iPhone/iPad, MP3 player, or laptop. Simply connect your audio device to the audio jack to enjoy your music. It is also wall mountable.  Buy from Amazon.in 2. Mitashi SB 2575 BT 2.1 Bluetooth:  © Mitashi If you're on a very tight budget, this is a very good option because it also has features 10W per channel output with decent subwoofer impedance. It also has Bluetooth for hassle-free wireless connections and USB connectivity. This one is rich on bass but lacks a surround sound system as good as the previous Philips one.  Mitashi says it has a 4000W PMPO (peak music power output) and a more premium design. It does weight slightly higher at 7 kilograms.  Buy from Amazon 3. Blaupunkt Dolby:  © Blaupunkt You can stream Dolby digital surround music wirelessly via Bluetooth with a powerful 80W output. The sound bar has surround sound adding perfect depth to your music listening experience. Moreover, you can stream your music in several modes including movie, music, news and surround. The active speaker system with firing subwoofer on the external side has proper depth. The sound bar has a powerful bass for the price the soundbar is offered at.  Buy from Flipkart 4. iBall BT10 Sound Bar:  © iBall The single unit sound bar sports a slim design and can be neatly installed inside your home with built-in wall brackets. The audio system comes with a remote control that allows direct soundtrack selections and offers beautiful harmony with your television set and interior. You can play the soundbar from any BT-enabled device. The sound is crisp and clear while the bass is quite satisfactory.  Buy from Amazon.in 5. Dell AC511:  © Microsoft This is the only soundbar in this list that does not have Bluetooth support. If you're looking for a soundbar for your computer display, this has to be a perfect choice. It is specially built to accompany Dell monitors and is aesthetically neat and with no frills. These are also one of the most compact but do not compromise on quality. Keep in mind, this does not come with an external sub-woofer.  Buy from Amazon.in
