  1. A 30-something man pampering himself with a pedicure, another one all tarted up in facial foam, and then one who just arrived for a hair spa – these are some of the most common sights every time I visit any salon. Clearly, “grooming is for girls” is a myth that has long been put to bed. View this post on Instagram Let your skin rest for a minute before splashing ice cold water on your face. The ice cold water will close your pores and tighten up the skin stopping dirt and pollution from entering your pores, causing acne. Remember that pimples are usually caused when we forget to close our pores. Also remember to pat dry with a clean and soft towel, do not wipe and scrape the towel against your face to dry, this could seriously irritate the skin and cause inflammation. . . . . #MensXPMUD #SkinCare #MaleBeauty #Products #Cleanse #Beauty #Men #GetFresh #Mud #SkinCareRoutine #GlowingSkin #ThatGlow #BeautifulSkin #BBCream #Products #FollowUs #StayFresh #Glow #MenForBeauty #MakeUpForMen #MaleMakeUp #Facewash A post shared by MensXP Mud (@mensxpmud) on Jul 1, 2019 at 6:29am PDT Gone are the days when men scrubbing their faces or using a concealer would result in a major meltdown. The beauty industry is breaking new grounds, with evolved products focussed especially on men. In fact, according to a recent Forbes report, skincare sales are growing the fastest among men's grooming products. Now that speaks volumes about how men are willing to dip their toes in the ongoing beauty revolution, and make it their own. While big developments are taking place at the global level, the Indian market is warming up to the idea of “beauty for men” as well. From celebrities like Aditya Roy Kapoor treading the extra mile to de-stigmatise male beauty to the beauty market booming with men's grooming products, we have made some serious progress. MensXP Mud Forays Into The Beauty Industry MensXP has been an ardent believer of how beauty products don't endanger masculinity, but redefine it. Bringing this belief to life, the brand forayed into the men's grooming sector with “MensXP Mud”. View this post on Instagram Don't we love the feeling after we've just moisturized. Fresh max! . .

Men's Beauty Is Here To Slay Here's what every man would've realised by now - a mere shower, shave or comb just won't make the cut anymore. The new breed of men is striving to become their best versions – ditching the mucky face, shabby hair and an ignored skincare regime.

They are often bogged down by societal baggage – “log kya kahenge”, “only gay men wear make-up”, “men shouldn't care about how they look”, among other crass remarks. But hold on, afraid of being judged by who? People who exhaust hair dyes to hide their greys? The society is filled to the brim with such hypocrites, ones that should be the least of our concerns. The ideology of MensXP Mud is born out of such real-world conversations and needs of the people. It aims to explore the codes of masculinity and empower progressive men who want to become their best selves. Exciting Products On The Block MensXP Mud packs a range of grooming essentials for any man who's building his skincare from the ground-up. Be it a heavy-duty SPF lotion, non-greasy face wash or a range of BB creams for the flawless skin every man deserves, this premium brand has got it all covered.

A man needs a sun-block or a face wash just as much as a woman does. No better time than now to join the #MenForBeauty revolution, and what better way to do it than with MensXP Mud.

  2. Would it be too much of wishful thinking to imagine a world wherein our elected political representatives come from a place of awareness and well-earned knowledge? Where logic and science is not defied every step of the way to make political statements, and retorts from opposition leaders doesn't sound like gibberish? Well, perhaps that's the reason why 'utopia' only exists within the pages of a dictionary. Because in the real world, these elected politicians have messed up their basic elementary level education and flushed it down the drain. It constantly makes us question the people we have chosen to lead us to a better future, and just to make our point here is the latest trigger. UP BJP Leader Vineet Agarwal Sharda claimed that the alarming state of air pollution in Delhi-NCR is because Pakistan and China are releasing “poisonous gases to pollute the air in India”. Here's exactly what he said. “Ye jo zehreeli hawa aa rahi hai, zehreeli gas aayi hai ho sakta hai kisi bagal ke mulk ne chhodi ho jo humse ghabraya hua hai. I feel that Pakistan or China are afraid of us. We must seriously consider whether Pakistan has released any poisonous gas.” The staggering absurdity of this statement is not lost on us, and we wonder where Mr Sharda had been during basic Environmental Science classes in school? Unfortunately Sharda isn't the only one to come up with such absurdities. These 7 Indian politicians have also said some absolutely logic-defying things and sent our brains into a coma. 1. Cows Give Oxygen Earlier this year, Uttarakhan Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat went viral on social media when he said, "Cow is the only animal that both inhales and exhales oxygen. This is why we have given it the status of the mother. Breathing problems can be cured by massaging cows, and tuberculosis can be cured by living in proximity with them.” Well, we wonder if CM Rawat has ever heard of Biology? 2. Internet Existed During The Time Of Mahabharat Last year during a public event in Guwahati, Tripura CM Biplab Deb claimed that, "India has been using the internet since ages. In Mahabharata, Sanjay was blind but he narrated what was happening in the battlefield to Dhritarashtra anyway. This was due to internet and technology. Satellite also existed during that period." We simply don't know what to say to that. Berners-Lee won't be happy about this. 3. Desi Cows' Milk Contains Real Gold Recently, Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh claimed that Indian cows' milk contains real gold. During a public meeting he was heard saying, "Our desi cows have a special characteristic. There is gold mixed in their milk and that is why their milk is golden. There is a blood vessel that helps produce gold with the help of sunlight. So, we have to keep those cows. If we drink desi cow milk, we will become healthy and can prevent diseases." What the actual ****? Did you ever set foot in a school as a child sir? Because we certainly doubt it. 4. Electricity In Villages Will Curb Growing Population Back in 2009, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that providing electricity in villages can help curb population growth because watching TV will prevent them from having ***. “In olden days people had no other entertainment but ***, which is why they produced so many children. Today, TV is the biggest source of entertainment. Hence, it is important that there is electricity in every village so that people watch TV till late in the night. By the time the serials are over, they'll be too tired to have *** and will fall asleep. Then they won't get a chance to reproduce. When there is no electricity, there is nothing else to do but produce babies.” *FACEPALM* 5. Virgin Means Unmarried & Pure Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey courted controversy when he tried to defend Patna's Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences' decision to ask applicants to declare their virginity. He had said, “Virgin, as per the dictionary, means an unmarried and pure girl. So all these words are not objectionable.” Which fucked-up dictionary did you refer to? Which law says that a woman who is not a virgin is not “pure” or that virginity is even related to being married? 6. The Sound Of Anklets Affect Boys' Studies Last year, Tamil Nadu's Minister of School Education KA Sengottaiyan said that, "Rings can be banned. They can go missing. Flowers, I am sure, would not be banned," he said, adding, "anklets should be banned. The clinking sound can distract boys. It can affect their studies and concentration." Aisa kaise hota hai? By that logic the girls should also get distracted when boys scratch their beards, no? 7. Darwin's Theory Of Evolution Is Wrong Union Minister Satyapal Singh had stated during an event last year that, “Darwin's theory (of evolution of humans) is scientifically wrong. It needs to change in school and college curriculum. Since the man is seen on Earth he has always been a man. Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, have said they saw an ape turning into a man.” We are legit running short of words at this point. View the full article
  3. There was a time when people were dangerously walking around on roads holding their smartphones looking for Pokemon. Well, the 'Pokemon Go' craze may have died down, but you may start seeing people doing the same thing again, except this time for Microsoft's new AR game called 'Minecraft Earth'. That's right, Microsoft has just revealed a new AR game for both Android and iOS called 'Minecraft Earth', and it's essentially a game that'll put life-sized Minecraft holograms of virtual trees, houses, etc. into the real world. Much like 'Pokemon Go' which made AR gaming a thing, 'Minecraft Earth' will also rely on your smartphone as a window into the virtual world. In 'Minecraft Earth', however, you won't find yourself running into, say, a Pikachu. You'll literally be building elaborate Minecraft creations that others can see and experience for themselves. From what it looks like, 'Minecraft Earth' is still the same game which a lot of us have been playing for a long time. Just like in the original version of 'Minecraft', you'll be hunting for resources, exploring new areas for creation, etc. The only difference being you'll be doing it out in the real world via a smartphone, instead of your TV or the computer screen. © Microsoft There's still a lot that we don't know about this game, but it looks like a lot of fun. Microsoft says it'll kick off a closed beta of 'Minecraft Earth' this summer on iOS and Android. We believe that it'll be super-limited at launch and it'll be rolling out in select locations. Don't worry though, it'll be available for free to download on both Android and iOS when it officially arrives whenever Microsoft thinks it's ready for a release.

  5. All of us, at some point, have been swayed by the lure of magical supplements that promise incredible changes to our physique. Whether they were gym owners, gym bodybuilders, local gym gurus or trainers, we've all been duped by them when it comes to supplements. If not, consider yourself lucky! Were these supplements really needed for your progress? Was it worth spending your hard-earned money on coloured alien piss to sip between your workouts? © Getty Images These are the supplements that are pretty much garbage, which your gym guruji may have convinced you to consume: 1. BCAAs: The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are essential, meaning they can't be produced by your body and must be obtained from food. Claims – Prevent Muscle Breakdown, Decrease Muscular fatigue and Soreness. Reality – If you're consuming 1.6 g/kg of Protein from Dietary sources, adding BCAAs to your plan would be equal to burning your money. 2. Glutamine: Glutamine is an Amino Acid too, which is derived from the Protein we eat. Claims – Muscle Building, Increased Growth Hormone & Muscle Recovery. Reality – Required Glutamine can be easily derived from the protein we eat. Most of the extra Glutamine we take via supplements don't even reach the muscles. It can only be helpful in certain situations like – critically ill people, immune system function and gut health. 3. Mass Gainer: Now, this is the supplement which I hate from the bottom of my heart. The reason? It's useless to the core. You're just paying for the powdered form of carbohydrates and fats which can easily be consumed via delicious food items like bananas, icecreams and pancakes. Now, who on Earth would eat these in powdered form? Claims – Magically increase your muscle mass and weight. Reality – Provides your extra calories in a powdered form which can easily be consumed via normal food. © Getty Images 4. Testosterone Boosters: All of us are aware that Testosterone is the king of all hormones which is required to build muscle. Claims – Magically increase testosterone to unbelievable numbers Reality – Consume foods containing adequate vitamins & minerals, sleep for 8-9 hours and disengage with any kind of harmful addictions. All of this will be more helpful if compared to an ill-dosed testosterone supplement. 5. Dianabol: Dianabol is the legal form of selling oral steroids and my perspective towards people using steroids is neutral. However, taking them without any professional guidance can end up with you possibly losing your life. Claims – Magically increase muscle mass and fast track the process. Reality – Apparently, the claim is right. However, the risk & reward ratio is too high. Could leave you with multiple health risks which may even translate to death.

  6. Xiaomi has added two new budget phones to its line up called the Redmi 7 and the Redmi Y3. They both are essentially the same devices, except the Redmi Y3 is a selfie-centric phone, and it has a 32MP selfie shooter as opposed to the 8MP shooter on the Redmi 7. Redmi Y3 will go on sale starting 30th April with a starting price of Rs. 9,999. Let's take a quick look at what these two phones have to offer - Redmi 7 © Mi Redmi phones in the past like the Redmi 5, Redmi 6, etc. have always been best-sellers for Xiaomi. Now, the company has launched the new Redmi 7, eyeing for the top spot in the same segment. The Redmi 7 has a 6.26-inch HD+ 'Dot Notch' display on the front, covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Apart from the affordable price tag, if there's anything that should attract you this phone, then it's got to be the looks. Xiaomi is calling it the Aura Smoke Design, and it looks absolutely beautiful. The phone comes in three colors i.e. Eclipse Black, Lunar Red, and Comet Blue. As for the specs, the Redmi 7 is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 632 chipset and it comes in two variants. You can buy it with either 2GB RAM + 32GB storage or 3GB RAM + 32GB storage. You can expand the storage further up to 512GB via a microSD card. Both variants have IR blaster and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. © Mi The Redmi 7 sports a dual-camera setup at the back with 12MP + 2MP lens. On the front, there's an 8MP selfie shooter with features like AI Beautify 4.0 and AI Portrait mode. The phone also packs a 4,000 mAh battery. Redmi Y3 As mentioned earlier, the Redmi Y3 is more or less identical to the Redmi 7. It's got the same display, are powered by the same processor, and it looks just as beautiful as the Redmi 7. The only difference, as we mentioned earlier, is the selfie camera. Xiaomi Y series of phones have always been about selfies, and this one's no exception. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Y3 sports a 32MP AI selfie camera. It's got features like EIS, palm shutter, Auto HDR, AI portrait mode, and more. The rear-camera setup, however, remains the same. It's also worth pointing out that the Redmi Y3 comes with more RAM and storage. The base variant of the Redmi Y3 packs 3GB RAM + 32GB storage. You can also choose to get the variant with 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Pricing & Availability The Redmi Y3 starts at Rs. 9,999, and you can also choose to spend Rs. 11,999 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. It'll go on sale starting 30th April on Amazon, mi.com and offline stores. More info on the Redmi 7 is incoming, so stay tuned.
  7. While growing up, especially in the 90s, we were all hooked to popular culture which was making its way through to India from all across the globe. One of the most prominent indulgence back them was music and whenever we speak of international music from the 90s, we can't help but unanimously think of the 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson. We've all heard him while growing up. While some us were truly hooked to his music, most of us were enthralled with his style of dancing. Whatever it was, MJ proved to the world that there would never be another music icon like him. © Pintrest But TBH that's not all we've known him for and quite unfortunately, MJ has managed to tarnish his reputation. While the newsroom was always abuzz with his stories, some of them stated that he was a child molester, a paedophile, who would molest little boys in his fantasy themed ranch-home, 'Neverland'. The news came and went like a season and although it baffled most of us, we shrugged it off as a misheard rumour and still gave him the respect he then deserved when he made us live under the realms of secrecy and the lesser known. © HBO Recently, after almost 20 something years, new information has surfaced giving the old rumours much more room and significance. Almost ten years after his death, a documentary has seen brand new light, highlighting evidential facts about MJ indeed molesting little kids in 'Neverland'. The documentary paints a rather unnerving and painful picture of the pop-artist's former ranch and we're feeling absolutely gutted even writing about it. The controversial film focuses on sexual allegations made by two men, whom he befriended when they were boys and asked them to stay with him at Neverland. Wade Robson and James Safechuck were sexually abused by MJ for several years in secrecy at his Nerverland ranch in California. © HBO The documentary has posed several legal threats for HBO and Channel 4 and obviously for the makers too, by Michael Jackson's estate, but the channels will air it regardless, next month. In fact, a new trailer for the documentary dropped just a day ago and the claims seem more real and uncanny than before. The new trailer offers a first look in to Jackson's twisted personality, via a 4 hour documentary, which was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival last month and it absolutely shocked the critics and the audience as they didn't know what was really coming for them. The two boys have absolutely exposed the closeted predator behaviour MJ displayed at his ranch and most of the facts are shocking and unbelievable. © HBO In the movie the accusers explain how Michael had led them to believe that if they ever told anyone about what he was doing to them then they would all end up in jail and so they didn't come forward to tell their story, most of their growing years, even after he passed away. “Everybody wanted to meet Michael or be with Michael,” We drive in, and forget about all your problems, you were in Neverland. It was a fantasy,” Say the boys in the new trailer. © HBO According to Dan Reed, the director this is not a movie about Michael Jackson or of how he abused little boys sexually. The main focus of the film is on how two families trusted Michael Jackson to leave their sons in his care and how much of an effort it took for the boys to reveal the truth to their families, years later, when they were grown men. MJ's estate has criticised the film already, in a 10-page letter addressed to the CEO of HBO but HBO is determined to telecast the documentary, without making any cuts by next month. There have been some attacks towards the film and towards Dan Reed by MJ's fans but given that the situation is fairly tough, this is bound to happen. © HBO “Anyone who sees the film will know it is solely about hearing the stories of two specific individuals and their families in their own words, and that is a focus we are very proud of,” - Reed told a popular publication. For the Indian audience who absolutely love Michael Jackson, maybe it's time to give up your fandom in order to not glorify predators and see them for who they really are. Here's hoping we get to catch the documentary in India sooner than later and it's accessible to easily download or buffer through the interweb.
  8. Last year, I started a new job in the city and I was finding it difficult to find the right balance. Going for dinners, drinks and partying was taking its toll and I wasn't happy with the way I looked. The process had become boring and I was essentially just going through the motions. I am a goal and target-driven individual in all aspects of my life, however, when it came to training I had no goal or purpose. After seeing my brother's incredible transformation with RNT, I thought it was about time I stepped up to the plate and that's when I contacted Akash. From being a skinny teenager, I was always concerned about the way I looked. Like many others, I tried to do it all myself. It took me a few years to realise I needed some guidance when it came to nutrition and training. I had known Akash for a number of years, as he was my brother's best friend, so I was lucky to be directed towards him. Indeed, Akash has helped me a create a great physique which people often stare at when I'm on the beach, but more importantly, he provided me with valuable life skills, particularly around discipline. The first six weeks were challenging, both mentally and physically. I hadn't food prepped in a very long time but fortunately, I had my brother) helping me with it. The training and diet weren't a major issue, to begin with. However, the most difficult part was the volume of the steps I was doing. Due to the nature of my job, I'm not as active as I used to be. This meant doing over 15,000 steps, which was extremely demanding. I thought I wouldn't have enough hours in the day but I got it done. I even remember walking around my park at 11.45 pm just trying to get all my steps in! The last three weeks were tough. It was bad enough going to work every day whilst dieting, but when I was finally on a diet of 100g of carbs – it was even worse. What kept me going the most? The results...there were noticeable changes in my body every day and this became my source of motivation. I want to thank RNT Fitness as a whole for their consistent content and motivating podcasts (RNT Fitness Radio). And in Akash, I not only have a hardworking coach and role model, but a great friend and I hope this relationship grows. You can read my whole journey here
  9. When we talk about superheroes, we can't help but think of a few who've really proven their mettle and strength through some tested times. Wolverine definitely comes in the forefront and when we saw him in Logan last, we were literally heartbroken to learn that Wolverine would never be seen again or at least that what Hugh Jackman claimed back then. © Twitter But now, Google suggests that Wolverine will be coming back and making an appearance in the most awaited movie of 2019, 'Avengers: Endgame', and we're so stoked with this news, we're hoping it's pretty damn true! The news poured in when Google figured the most 'searched' part of the upcoming movie was 'famous Hugh Jackman films' and the result was obviously showing 'Avengers: Endgame'. Fancy that! © Walt Disney Studios Although we do hear that if Wolverine does present himself in the new Avengers, Hugh Jackman won't be playing him. That's absolutely uncool since we really can't imagine anyone else fitting into that role. So, if he needs to play the character one last time, it's no biggie right? Are you reading Hugh? But even so, the search engine still believes Jackman is part of Endgame regardless and has put all its hopes and desires into making that happen, and we're definitely rooting for the same. Well, why shouldn't we? Since Fox and Disney are heading for a merger anyway, the possibility of Wolverine, Deadpool and X-Men being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is very probable indeed! © Twitter Are you lost and confused? Well, why don't you open your favourite search engine and type 'Hugh Jackman' and see what comes up? Or we'll show it you. Here's a screenshot! © MensXP Sigh! This is what a good year is made up of and we really hope this is true!
  10. Some people always find a reason to skip their workout, isn't it? I am sure you also know a few couch potatoes in your friend circle who always tell you that they don't want to work out because they feel good about the way they are. Today I will tell you a few reasons why these sloppy guys need to start working out right now so that it's not too late to regret later. Read on the following reasons to know why you need to work out regularly and share them with your lazy friends. 1) It Helps You Build Healthy Bones And Muscle Mass Exercise helps your body build and maintain healthy bones and muscles mass. As you age, your body has the tendency to lose muscle mass and bone density. Exercising regularly can help you delay this aging factor of the human body. Weight training is the king of all the exercises when it comes to maintaining a decent muscle mass. However, any kind of regular physical activity will still help you maintain healthy bones and muscle strength. If you exercise regularly and keep your bones healthy, it will also save you from the risk of osteoporosis in the future. 2) Exercise Works As An Energy Booster Not just for regular people, exercise also works wonders on people who are suffering from various ailments. Studies conducted on people suffering from persistent fatigue established that six weeks of regular exercise helped them reduce and cure the feeling of fatigue. There have also been researches to prove that exercise can improve the symptoms of chronic fatigue and other serious illness. © Thinkstock Images 3) Exercise Regularly And Keep Chronic Illness At Bay Lack of regular exercise is the root cause of majority of chronic illnesses these days. Diabetes, heart disease and Arthritis are becoming common with general population and the biggest contributing factor is the lack of exercise. With regular exercise you can improve your body's response to insulin which will help you with better insulin sensitivity. Also, since lack of exercise leads to excess storage of fat in the body which leads to heart disease, it works as a life saver also. People who work out regularly, tend to have normal blood pressure and good heart health. 4) Exercise Helps You With Weight Loss And Body Re-Composition The problem of overweight and obesity have become a common sight amongst the youth these days. One of the crucial contributing factors to this epidemic is lack of exercise amongst youth. Exercising is the long term solution to this problem. Multiple studies have proven this fact that regular exercise (weight training or cardiovascular) when combined with a calorie deficit diet leads to weight loss and better body composition. In fact, exercise boosts your weight loss process as it speeds up your metabolic rate so that you are burning more number of calories even when sitting idle. © Pixabay 5) Exercise Boosts Your Quality Of Sleep When you work out, energy depletion takes place which stimulates the recuperative process of the body. This recuperative process is done by the body when you are asleep. Thus people who work out regularly tend to fall asleep early and experience a sound sleep. Multiple studies have reached similar conclusions. This includes studies on people who were facing problem of sleeping disorders as well elderly who had problem in sleeping.

  11. The battle of bezel-less phones is getting even more interesting, we've already seen curved edge displays by Samsung, and now Xiaomi too is going head-on with its MIX series phones. In fact, it was Xiaomi that kicked off the bezel-less display craze and now everyone is trying to catch up. In a bid to set itself apart from the rest, Xiaomi is now taking a page out of OPPO's design playbook with a Find X-like mechanical sliding camera module on the Mi MIX 3. Xiaomi president Lin Bin posted a render of the soon to come phone on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo. The company is targeting an October launch, though no real specifications have been confirmed yet. © Mi MIX 2S / YouTube Coming back to the sliding camera module, we can see in the render two front-facing cameras along with an earpiece along with an unknown hole. The hole could probably be an infrared sensor for face recognition. The chin of the smartphone is ultra-thin and is sure to make many flagships out there hide in shame. The mechanical sliding camera has received a mixed response from users in the last few months are the launch of the Find X. The usual premise for the dislike is durability. Companies have long preferred to stay away from moving parts in a phone because they have a higher probability of going bust on a minor drop, or even due to heavy usage. Since the debut of the MIX lineup, Xiaomi has focused on reducing down bezels, and increasing the screen-to-body ratio. Going with a sliding camera does make sense as this will enable the company to further expand the display, and all essential sensors can be offloaded to the slider. © Honor Magic 2 / AndroidAuthority The official confirmation from Xiaomi comes immediately after Huawei's sub-brand Honor unveiled the Magic 2 at IFA Berlin 2018. The phone too has a sliding camera mechanism that the company likes to call “Magic Slide”. Honor has further bragged that the design means the phone has near 100 percent screen-to-body ratio. We surely have our doubts with that claim, as the device prototype was simply unveiled on stage. Honor has said it is just a couple of months away from releasing the phone, about the same time when we expect Xiaomi to launch the MIX 3.
  12. When you go to the gym and do an exercise, it serves a specific purpose. You bench press to build a stronger bench and develop your chest. You squat to grow your quadriceps and so on. Every exercise has some application and they fulfill a function. And then, there are some exercises that are outrightly useless, stupid, and serve no purpose. The funnier part is that you see many gym bros doing it or even trainers suggesting it to their clients. 1. Bosu Ball Anything © Pinterest Bosu ball squat, Bosu ball bicep curls, Bosu ball overhead press. Basically, Bosu ball anything is practically useless. Why? Because you would never be overloading yourself on a bouncy surface in your actual life, ever! When was the last time you tried to hit a squat PR in a bouncy house? Umm, never, right? I thought so too. And when you are doing anything on a Bosu ball, you are constantly juggling between balancing yourself vs. moving the weight. You do not get better at anything. Those who'd debate saying 'core stabilization', there are hundreds of different ways to stabilize the core which do not involve a Bosu ball. The high risk of injury while moving those weights and wiggling is totally not worth it. 2. Dumbbell Side Bends © Muslce and Fitness We have all seen those people who at the end of the workout would hold two dumbbells on their sides and set rep records for the same thinking that they are reducing the 'side fat' or building abs with it. Nah, that does not do anything. This is mainly because your core is built to counter resist or stabilize a load and not assist it. This is exactly what it is doing when you do side bends! 3. Dumbbell Shadow Boxing © YouTube These folks literally make me cringe in the gym. Holding a pair of 2 lbs and dancing around near the weight rack creating an injury prone area not only for themselves but also for those around them. And when you look at it biomechanically, you are moving horizontally (punching the air) against a resistance (the dumbbell) that is acting vertically, i.e. towards the gravity. Usually, adding resistance also slows you down. Compare a bodyweight squat vs. a loaded barbell squat, which one would you move faster in? You got it right! If you are actually practicing boxing, the goal would ideally be throwing punches as fast as you could, not actively slowing it down. 4. Squat/Lunge Combined With An Upper Body Movement A lot of trainers make their clients do this weird combo of a lunge or a squat coupled with bicep curls or overhead presses or lateral raises, basically with an upper body movement. Saves time? Probably yes. Effective? Absolutely not! But by doing this combo, you are effectively making your lower body part of the exercise worthless as the resistance you are holding to do a curl or a lateral raise or an overhead press is too light for your lower body and you are not effectively loading it. If your exercise routine includes any of these exercises, maybe it is a time to take these out.

  14. Maybe you're not the funniest guy in the hood but I am sure you have some amount of funny in you because that's what most women really dig. Sometimes women don't care about how fancy your car is, or how many credit cards you have docked up in your wallet. As long as you can make her laugh and make her forget about her temporary woes, she's going to believe that you're a keeper! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images So, if you ever find yourself on a date with the woman you really like and want to floor her with your charms, there is no better way to do it than with humour! Here are 5 simple ways to make her laugh during date night! Make Yourself The Subject If run out of jokes or your sense of humour goes dry start cracking jokes about yourself. Obviously in a less demeaning way! It's a great technique used by comedians too, to get their audience to appreciate their jokes. It also gives a good sense of self confidence to the woman you're with. When she sees you're least affected by the jokes you've cracked on yourself she will definitely enjoy your company more, be comfortable around you and find your jokes more relatable and funny! (c)Giphy Play A Fun Game You can play various games to get to know each other better, and also make each other laugh. The games can be funny and fun all at once. For instance, you can start with 'never have I ever'. It's a drinking game where you say something atrocious you've done (out loud) and if she's done the same thing too, you both drink to that. It's simple, hilarious and lots of fun and of course it's a great way to know your dates deepest darkest secrets! (c)Giphy Narrate Funny Incidents This one's an easy one. I am sure you've gone through life with a lot of hilarity, mostly from obscure and funny incidents, every now and then. I'm sure you've been embarrassed of them too. Narrate them to her on your date.

(c)Giphy Work On Your Timing Working on your comic timing is a must because a joke will only be funny if you time it well. Sometimes humour really doesn't work because the delivery and timings of the joke are just bad! Most comedians take a lot of time to perfect their comic timing. If the timing is right, the joke automatically becomes funny! (c)Giphy The next time you're out on a date with someone you really dig, maybe make do with some humour? It always comes in handy!

  16. Dating a fit girl is always a bonus, but dating a fit girl who does yoga is a win-win situation for life! Yoga doesn't only work one's body, it enhances one's mind and emotions and finds a perfect balance between the two. A yogini, as you'd call a girl who does yoga, is always level-headed and stable, apart from being flexible and comfortable with her body. So if you find a girl who's totally into yoga, hold onto her because these reasons will tell you why: Flexible Mind & Body It's not just her body that's flexible. I mean it's obvious her body can do wonders with every movement but yoga also makes her mind flexible and allows her to let go of anything negative she's been holding onto, making her flexible and 'flux' loving. Yoga girls are usually laid back. You'll see! (c)Thinkstock Getty Images That Yoga Body Though Yoga girls are just really hot and their bodies speak for themselves. The next time you spot one, figure it out for yourself. Ps: Don't be a pervy-perverson though. (c)Thinkstock Getty Images Check That Confidence Out Yoga girl is naturally very confident. Yoga opens up different parts of the body and helps open up any trapped emotion. Once the bad emotion is out, confidence oozes out and how! Apart from that, a girl who does yoga looks and feels great all the time. (c)Thinkstock Getty Images Mighty Strength Maybe she can't beat you in arm-wrestling but put her up for a plank challenge and you're surely losing that. If not a plank challenge, I am sure she's going to lure you into trying the head-stand. Can you even head-stand bro? (c)Thinkstock Getty Images No Judgements Yoga girls have in time learnt to release any negative judgement or biases they might have formed, by practising yoga every day. They don't judge themselves or anyone else. (c)Thinkstock Getty Images She's Healthy AF Doing yoga on a daily basis is the most healthy activity you can imbibe. It lets you open up your body in ways you'd never imagine it would and once you're a daily practiser, you'll never face ill-health again. So, if you end up dating one, you'll notice you're the one with constant sniffles in winters and she's the one handing over tissues to you! (c)Thinkstock Getty Images Balancing Act Yes, yoga teaches one how to balance. A girl who does yoga can balance both the dancer or the tree pose and her emotions very well. Balancing is all about finding your centre and once that's found, you won't have a single rough day with her. (c)Thinkstock Getty Images She's Super Comfortable With Her Body Because she has a lot of confidence, she's very comfortable with her body and has no reservations about how she looks or feels or how her body is shaped. She'll be comfortable in a bikini as she'll be comfortable in a crop top. She works hard on her body and she's not afraid to show it off! (c)Thinkstock Getty Images She's Positive Not just theoretically but yoga talks about positivity through its various asanas as well. Not only that, a yoga body always emits endorphins and endorphins always make people happy and positive. Every girl you meet who does yoga will definitely give you a happy and a positive vibe. Try it! (c)Thinkstock Getty Images It's not hard to meet a girl who's into yoga nowadays since yoga has become the way of life and has fit in perfectly well in everyone's fitness regime. So maybe try some yoga yourself, or find a girl who is a thoroughbred yogini. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
  17. It's always good to pre-heat the oven before you bake your goods! Which literally means, before you jump into the sack with a woman, you need to put in some hard work! But that doesn't mean you don't reap the benefits of your own hard work! I am sure, she will repay you back in kind and how, after you ace the most powerful tool of foreplay- a sensual massage just for her. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Everyone likes receiving a massage but the added benefits of a sensual massage are different. Apart from relaxing and calming your nerves, it also heightens the pleasure factor, turning your woman on, till she can't take it anymore! Whether it's a special anniversary date or just another Tuesday, you can spoil her silly, by using just your hands and become the best at giving sensual massages! Women love and respect a man who respects their body and if you know what you're doing to her body, you're almost there. Besides a massage also helps sort any emotional pain and anxiety. So if you're helping her rid that, then there's a one up for you. © Thinkstock/Getty Images So, I suggest you get right to it today, when you see her, and make it one of the best evenings you've given her in a while! Here are some easy-to-do massage techniques you can try on her and give her the time she deserves & don't worry, you don't need a 6 weeks course in learning how to give a proper sensual massage. Just read on and you'll get the gist of it. First Off, Take Care Of The Lighting Lighting is important because it helps build the mood. You can't just give a massage with full blown fluorescent lights. I mean you can, but it won't garner the same effect it usually does, through some dim lighting. If you can dim the lights in the room that would be perfect. And if you can find some scented candles along the way and light them, she'd love that. It's the perfect way to initiate anything sensual or sexual. Music Is The Food Of...Oh Well, ***! While initiating a massage, it's really not the right time to play heavy or punk metal or even reggae! Play something that gets her in the mood. Usually soft instrumental music should do the trick (umm, not elevator music). Try something on the lines of Bonobo or Portishead or if you want something more rooted, then maybe try some Buddha Bar? Some Much Needed Aromatherapy You really don't want the room to smell of dirty 'ol socks or of chicken curry. Scented candles is one option. You can place them all around and light them up, when you both are in the room. You can also use a diffuser and burn some camphor or essential oils in it, for the room to smell pleasant. Apart from scented candles, if you're really serious about giving her a good massage, then don't be a cheap boy and invest in some essential oils for the massage. Yes, you can give her a massage out of basic baby oil or any other massage oil but essential oils help relax the body further and the aroma relaxes and calms the senses. If you like you can infuse the essential oils with coconut oil. It's the best combination. Here are some essential oils you can try: Lavender, Mandarin, Eucalyptus, Vanilla Essence, Jasmine and Night Queen. Do Not Start Exploring The Erogenous Zones Right Away Yes, I know it's tempting to jump right onto her erogenous zones (https://www.mensxp.com/relationships/***/40453-5-unknown-female-erogenous-zones-you-should-definitely-know-about.html), but hold your horses! It's like turning on the geyser, before heading for a shower (if it isn't instant, that is!). You have to wait at least five minutes before you jump into the shower! Her body needs to be charged too. So start with her neck, upper-back, arms and mid-back and then start exploring the other parts, slowly! Make sure your hands are warm though. You don't want to be massaging her with cold hands. Take some oil in your hands, before you start massaging and rub them together, so your hands warm up considerably. Massage Techniques: Shiatsu Technique If you don't have much experience in giving massages, this is an easy way to massage someone. It's basically and literally the rule of thumb! You use your thumb to put pressure on the body while pressing, kneading and moving your thumbs in a circular motion. Let the pressure be gentle though; you don't want to hurt her. You can apply this technique all over her body. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Kneading Technique Have you ever kneaded dough? I bet you haven't but maybe you can see some videos on how dough is kneaded and maybe apply the same hand movements on her body! The technique is usually used for a deeper tissue massage and it's good for more meaty parts of the body, like the butt and the thighs. You can use your palms for this massage and work your way from top to bottom. Compression Technique This technique is used right before you go into a deeper massage (like shiatsu) and basically it's quite literal in nature. You apply pressure by pressing your palms flat onto the area, in a circular motion. This is really good for the lower and upper back. Nuru Massage Technique This is another exotic massage technique which involves you and your partner to both be naked and covered in oil. This is a contact based massage technique where you need to rub your body against her body, massaging it, while you two are covered in oil. It's an excellent massage technique to connect with your partner. You can find many Nuru massage videos online to help you understand the basics. Genitalia Massage Technique As the name suggests, this is massaging her privates. Mostly clitoral stimulation. This should be the last area you should focus on, as this will spring her into action right away, if you do it right! After you massage her body, with whatever technique you chose to, make her lie down on her back, comfortably, and maybe go through the obvious erogenous zones again (like her chest, breast, nipples and buttocks) before you hit the spot. Glide your hands down her body and gently stroke the outer layer of her vagina (the walls of her vagina) in an up-down motion. Do not use your tongue! Remember, it's a massage, not an eating out session! Once her arousal knows no bounds, gently start her genital massage. You can use lubrication for the massage but don't use massage oils right on her vagina. If you're good at it, maybe you won't even need lubrication! Once she starts secreting natural lubrication, you can initiate clitoral stimulation. Use your index and forefingers to gently rub her clitoris. If she doesn't enjoy the clitoral massage, you can try giving her an internal massage. If you find it hard to locate her clitoris, always ask her. Female clitoris come in all shapes and sizes so it's okay to get lost sometimes. I am not saying indulge in a massage every other day but maybe a weekly or even a fortnightly massage can do wonders for your relationship. I am sure she will pay you back, with a marvellous massage as well, but the trick is, never to expect one back. It'll keep you both happy. So, the next time she looks tired and weary, you know what to do!
  18. The gym militia is wild. It is a place where wild things happen. Now you might ask, what's the wildest of all things? No, it's not the lifting. It's the "quotes" that gym bros put on their pictures. Yes, they are wild. Wildly idiotic, I mean. Most of these quotes come from over-enthusiastic-weekend-gym bros, who have been lifting for no more than a week. Alright, I'll make it two. The usual drill is: get into the gym, shake hands, chat a bit, text while doing the set and just when a sweat breaks (because of the heat, not because of lifting hard) click a picture, put a hundred filters and slap a quote on it. Tada! Feel accomplished. Phew, if that isn't wild, I don't know what is. Jokes apart, it's 2018, if you are still using these garbage quotes on your gym pictures, you need to STOP! 1) I Train Your Trainer This is the latest obsession of most 'fake natty' Instagram bodybuilders. Firstly, nobody knows whose train you train. Secondly, the amount of cringe-worthy self-obsession this quote throws around is unfathomable. 2) Beast Mode ON This quote has been so overused that you shouldn't be surprised at all even if they judge your soul for using it. It's on wrist bands, t-shirts, sipper bottles, gym bags and hell, even on jock straps. The funniest thing is that nobody even has the slightest of idea how this quote came about. Just go and Google 'Marshawn Lynch' and you will know. And please, if you still want to use it, please don't use it while doing cardio. There's nothing beastly about cardio! © Thinkstock 3) My Gym Is My Valentine Now because of this stupid quote, most women think that guys who lift in the gym are all about the gym and nothing else. No we aren't. It's just some idiots, who know nothing about eating and training and, of course, scare away women (especially) and tell people that they 'love training'. Also, using of this quote can kill your already average chances of getting a date. © Thinkstock 4) No Pain No Gain Arnold said this over 40 years ago. You aren't Arnold and certainly, don't train as hard as he did. Moreover, this quote has been unfathomably misinterpreted. Guys put up absolute shit show of thousands of reps with bad form, thinking the more it pains, the more they will grow. But of course, they don't.
  19. “There's nothing good that comes out of war. It's simply hell on earth, and people survive, and people don't.” is a quote by Michael Cimino as true as any. However, the wars have definitely given us some unbelievable and astounding stories of spies and special agents. Here are four of the most fantastical spy stories you'll ever come across on the internet. 1. Noor Inayat Khan © Pinterest An Indian born spy with a story worth celebrating. Noor was a child of an interracial marriage between an Indian man (descendant of Tipu Sultan) and an American woman. She lost her father at a young age and had to flee with her family to London during World War II. She wasn't a woman mentally or physically fit to be a secret agent but her hatred towards the Nazis was enough motivation to overpower her incapability. She was sent to Paris in June 1943, Noor, aged 29 at the time, was SOE's first female undercover radio operator in France. Roughly in a week's time, all of SOE's operators in the city were caught by German intelligence. She refused to be extradited and continued the mission alone for three months. She changed locations and identities every day, collected information and also managed to send messages back to London. She was eventually caught after being betrayed by a German double agent. She collected all her strength and fought the captors, it took six men to arrest her. Noor tried to escape the prison twice. She was kept in solitary confinement and was continuously subjected to violent interrogations but the woman did not break. After one whole year in captivity, she was transferred to Dachau concentration where she was brutally tortured and shot to death in 1944. “Liberte” is believed to be her last word. She was awarded Croix se Guerre, France's best known military decoration and a George Cross, Britain's highest civilian decoration 2. Takeo Yoshikawa © azcentral History doesn't change because of people's opinion. It is an accumulation of “facts”. Here is how fact is defined; a thing that is known or proved to be true. Very rarely do people challenge history. We are about to introduce you to one of those rarities. Takeo Yoshikawa, a man disguised as Tadashi Morimura, was on a one-man mission to Pearl Harbour but was abandoned by his own men. In August 1940, Yoshikawa reached Pearl Harbor with the mission of collecting intel on the American military installations. Not only was he sent without a proper training but he was informed that he wasn't going to receive help of any sort from Japan's Hawaiian spy network. He spied on the Navy base and the nearby Army Air Corps through a private dining room owned by a woman. He was living a life straight out of spy movies; changing costumes, jobs, and adapting different identities better than a chameleon. He manipulated his long-distance swimming skills by spying on the base from underwater and breathing through reeds. During the evenings, he picked up hitchhiking U.S. soldiers and servicemen and persuaded them for information without seeming suspicious. He raided the military dumpsters pretending to be a drunk vagrant. It was the information provided by him that shaped the entire attack. He reported that North of Oahu was the direction with the lowest security, the location of shallowest waters, the robustness of ships, and the entire schedule. The Japanese military accomplished its objective with brutal effectiveness with the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. Yoshikawa returned to Japan and worked in Naval intelligence until Japan surrendered in 1945. He immediately went into hiding and returned to his family in 1952 and opened a candy shop in 1955. People became aware of his role in the war. “They even blamed me for the atomic bomb,” Yoshikawa told Australia's Daily Mail in 1991, in an interview with the Western press. The candy business failed and he couldn't find another job. He never received any official recognition for his contribution to the war effort. In fact, his petition for the pension to the Government was denied. 3. Juan Pujol García © priceonomics Juan Pujol joined German spy agency to serve as a double agent to Britishers. His success can be calculated by the fact that he is the only confirmed person to receive high decorations from both the British (MBE) and the Germans (Iron Cross). He was sent to England to collect information about British spies but instead went to Lisbon and using a UK tourist guide he made up the reports. He maintained a fictional network of 27 agents (for which he got paid US$340,000) in efforts to waste German resources. The reports seemed so pristine that Germans plotted various missions to capture spies based on data provided by him. This caught the attention of British intelligence and they recruited him. He passed an MI5 security check conducted by two MI5 officers and an MI6 officer after which he was assigned the code name; Garbo. He never made the Germans suspicious enough to appoint another spy to verify his reports and still managed to not leak any sensitive information about British strategies. For a while, he blamed the delay in the delivery of reports on the courier. Noticing the growing frustration of Germans, in 1943 Pujol and Tomás Harris (a Spanish-speaking officer) created a fictional radio mechanic to facilitate faster communication. To justify the inability in reporting an easily available information, he faked the death of Tomás Harris. In January 1944, he provided false locations for Normandy landings. They believed Garbo's reports to such an extent that they kept two armoured divisions and 19 infantry divisions in the Pas de Calais waiting for an invasion through July and August 1944. He even professed his own “arrest” to justify his failure of providing information on the falling of V1 flying bombs. 4. Fritz Joubert Duquesne © info Fritz Duquesne was a man believed by many to be the most notorious spy ever. Even though he was one of the most influential people at the time, his story is barely covered in the history books since he had a reputation for fabricating stories about himself including his origin, education, and even the fact that he murdered Britain's Lord Kitchener. He headed the biggest spy ring in the history of the United States, was a globe-trotting journalist, was known for his connections with President John F. Kennedy. At age 12, he killed his first man, a Zulu who attacked his mother. His hatred for Britishers (for massacring his family) motivated him to be a German spy. He escaped several internments (three times by the British and once by the Portuguese) with his manipulative skills and sheer shrewdness. He faked paralysis for two years to avoid imprisonment, allegedly used a metal spoon to tunnel his way out of a prison and also, pretended to be a woman for his breakout. He is held responsible for the sinking of 22 ships and embezzling money from insurance on merchandise he transported on those ships. He was finally seized and faced imprisonment of 13 years followed by two years in welfare hospital where he died as a 78-year-old lonely poverty-stricken man.

  21. Bose just announced their wireless in-ear headphones called “SoundSport Free” today which will go on sale for INR 18,990. The buds function just like the AirPods, i.e. wirelessly and can be charged through an included case. © Bose While the AirPods are for more casual users, the SoundSport Free has a distinctly sporty look and is targeted for activity-focused users. It has a silicone StayHear+ sports tips to ensure a comfortable fit during intense activities. Apart from the tips, it is also an IPX4 water resistant device (Apple's AirPods aren't water resistant) and can withstand sweat or water exposure (splash proof). The pair of earbuds connect via Bose's Connect iOS and Android app and also includes a nifty feature in case you lose your buds. It has a “Find My Buds” feature where it displays the last known location and time of use in order to help you find your lost earbuds. © Bose We've been testing the SoundSport Free for a few days now and from our initial impressions, it can last up to 5 hours on a single charge and can get an additional 10 hours of battery life with the charging case. The battery life is at par with Apple's AirPods, however, the case falls short of providing additional battery life. The wireless earbuds have controls located on the top of the buds which gives you access to control volume levels, play or pause tracks, skip tracks and answer phone calls. The controls will also launch Siri or Google Assistant, depending on your device. Bose says that the earbuds have a special Bluetooth antenna that enables it to sustain a strong Bluetooth connection and can work up to 30 feet away from your device (As long as there is no physical obstruction). © YouTube We will continue to test these wireless earbuds and post our final review in the coming days. Keep a look out for the official review in our Technology section.

  24. When it comes to wit, there is no one who even comes close to Shah Rukh Khan. There have been several instances where he has proved why he is the ultimate king and you can't help but adore the man. Just a few months ago, King Khan made an appearance on TED Talks where he spoke about Bollywood cinema and stardom. Within no time, the video took the whole world by storm. There was literally no one who didn't enjoy watching him and now he is hosting TED Talks India. Well, who could have done it better? While we are always impressed by the star, there is someone else as well who feels the same. John Cena took to Twitter and tweeted an article about SRK's TED Talk that he stumbled upon and was amazed by. This was randomly put up in a small article by @theCHIVE very glad i stumbled across it https://t.co/jZ8gLONB6k via @TEDTalks — John Cena (@JohnCena) December 21, 2017 To which SRK had his own witty reply. He wrote, "thx for taking out time to 'See' it. Wish I can 'See u' someday. Love & health to u my man." thx for taking out time to 'See' it. Wish I can 'See u' someday. Love & health to u my man. https://t.co/P8GyVWjAzT — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) December 22, 2017 Well, for those who are clueless, the tweet was in reference to Cena's famous catch phrase "You can't see me". And the Hollywood actor and WWE superstar totally got it! John has a wonderful message to SRK's reply which made us smile. He said, “You as well sir. Your perspective on life is one I strive to attain, that, and being visible of course. #Cyberspaceghost”. You as well sir. Your perspective on life is one I strive to attain, that, and being visible of course. #Cyberspaceghost https://t.co/uA5XJ5LJdv — John Cena (@JohnCena) December 22, 2017 Looking at the chat they exchanged, how we wish we could see the two sharing screen space together. SRK has often collaborated with international celebrities and he just might get John Cena onboard too. How superb would it be too see John working with SRK?
  25. Alright guys, it's time to make those 'never-really-follow' New Year fitness resolutions. It's completely alright if you find it hard to keep up but just don't give up. Good things don't come easy. Also, it's about time to stop acting like internet idiots and start believing anything you see or read about fitness. Here are 5 things you absolutely need to stop doing in 2018. 1) Doing Cardio Like A Mad Cow In The Hopes Of Losing Fat © YouTube People generally misunderstand cardio and end up overdoing it. If you are fat, fix your nutrition, don't buy a treadmill. Running for hours like mad cows will only make you skinny fat and raise your stress hormone levels. Jogging, running or generally any form of steady state cardio isn't the best for fat loss. In fact, the way people overdo it, it's the worst. Plan a structured diet and foster it with a solid weight training routine. Cardio is only a tool not a training protocol. 2) Thinking That Just Because You Worked Out Hard, You Can Eat Anything © YouTube People who do a lot of cardio generally do this. Oh, I ran for an hour, now I gorge on a pizza. No workout program can outdo a bad diet. If you think it can, take off your shirt and you will know what I am saying. Nutrition first, exercising later. What you eat reflects in how you look. 3) Buying Detox Water, Thinking That It Will Make You Slim © YouTube Don't let your desperation guide your fat loss journey. There are a million bogus products out there but none of them will ever help you. Detox food or juices are the front runners in the list of stupid fat loss products. Stop wasting your money and invest in a good coach and more protein rich food. 4) Buying Fat Free Food And Going On Fruitarian Diets (STOP Throwing Away Your Egg Yolks) © YouTube It's 2017 and we have come a long way from the 50s and 60s when people feared fat as it were Satan's child. Thanks to science, we now know that fat is very essential for our well being and doesn't, in isolation, make us fat. So please, stop picking up stupid products. Also, fruit only diets will wreck your metabolism beyond belief. You need macro nutrients to survive. 5) Fearing Carbohydrates © YouTube No macronutrient is bad OR makes you fat. It's the total amount of calories you eat from everything that's making you fat. Ketogenic dieters in particular have given carbs a bad name. Sadly though, science agrees with evidence, not idiocy. Carbohydrates are not making you fat, your overeating is. Establish calories in versus calories out. Calculate the food you eat.
