  1. Getting a haircut at a neighbourhood salon is one of those things which Indian men are so accustomed to, that they still prefer it over fancy salons, sometimes in spite of being able to easily afford the latter. The reasons are aplenty, but the bottomline is, the local neighbourhood salon will always score one up against the fancy salon chains, so it's only sagacious on our part to make the most of it. Sometimes, however, things can go wrong, but it can be prevented easily by being a bit vigilant. © Thinkstock/Getty Images How, you ask? Here are 3 things you need to do as soon as you enter a local neighbourhood salon, in order to be able to avoid a bad haircut. 1. Make sure you don't enter it during a rush hour, in other words, avoid a crowded salon. You know how neighbourhood salons work - they earn purely because of their volume of work. They want to be able to attend all the customers, and as a result, the quality of work obviously suffers. No one is at fault here, because India just has that many people. An easy solution? Don't go to the salon during peak hours - for example, weekend afternoons and weekday mornings/evenings. As soon as you see a huge line of people waiting for their turn, please reschedule. This automatically will ensure a better haircut. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Once you enter the salon and sit on your chair, tell Mr Barber to wait for a couple of minutes. Before he picks up his tools and starts the process, communicate to him what exactly you want from him. Be extremely didactic, and don't just assume he knows what to do with your hair. Yes, it's his job to get the haircut done, but it's not his job to read your mind and figure out what you want for your hair. Make sure he listens carefully and understands, before letting him start the process. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Be assertive during the process, but not overbearing. Keep a close track of the process by looking into the mirror, and see whether it's going towards the direction you want it to. The moment you see some deviation, immediately but gently point it out. Often, we just let the barber take over, and start watching the hilariously dubbed Tamil/Telugu movie on the TV kept up on a shelf, losing track of the process. The result? Often things drastically go wrong - trivial things that could have easily been prevented, and because it's on your head/face, even the smallest mistake can make you look horrible for a few weeks. Being a little vigilant can help you ensure that you never end up with a bad haircut at a local neighbourhood salon.
  2. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) less than a week away, passionate fans of the game and more specifically, the league, now have some serious shade thrown by former captain of the Indian cricket team at the current Indian skipper, to discuss and have quarrels over. In an analysis show ahead of the biggest cricketing league in the world initiates, Gautam Gambhir took a killshot at Virat Kohli's abilities as a captain for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). “I don't see him as a shoot captain or a tactful captain. And he hasn't won the IPL,” said the former Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain on the show. “Ultimately a captain is only as good as his record till.” Ever since the league came into existence in 2008, Virat Kohli has been a part of the RCB family. Signed under what was known as a 'Youth Contract' for a mere $30,000, Kohli slowly worked his way up the success ladder with the franchise, year by year. After being the only player to be retained by the team before the 2011 season began, Kohli was promoted to the role of vice-captain and even captained the squad on a couple of occasions when former Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori went down with an injury. Following his success with the Indian cricket team, as he became one of the more recognised men of the game, for his exceptional batting, charged-up attitude and the knack to take challenges head on, Kohli was named the permanent captain of the RCB roster after Vettori bid adieu to the format. However, what Gambhir pointed out about Kohli's performance when it comes to IPL, has a lot of sense in it. There's no doubting the man's contribution towards Team India's ascension in international cricket. Under Kohli's captaincy, India has been great but the 30-year-old has failed to provide similar output for his Bangalore team. Gambhir also said: “There are people who have won the trophy three times - MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. So I think he has a long way to go. You cannot compare him to someone like Rohit or Dhoni at this stage...” While players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have had the privilege to host the IPL trophy in their cities for three seasons each and even Gambhir lifting the cup in 2012 and 2014, Kohli hasn't even had the opportunity to get a whiff of it. Getting eliminated in the league stages in most of the seasons, Kohli and the RCB gang has made it to the IPL Final thrice, only to be put down by Hyderabad Deccan Chargers, Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad in the years 2009, 2011 and 2016, respectively. According to Gambhir, Kohli should thank the decision-makers of the Royal Challengers franchise for continuing to have faith in him and letting him be the captain despite the below-average results simply because of the fact that not a lot of other players have enjoyed such trust and have been dethroned from captaincy for far less. Gautam Gambhir's final season with the Delhi Daredevils comes to mind keeping things in similar context when after a bad start to the season, his duty as the leader of the team was taken away by the team-owners and given to a rookie like Shreyas Iyer. It's sad but it's true.
  3. The original 'Doom' movie that came out in 2005 failed to put up a good show. Both 'Doom' fans and the critics hated it despite having a good cast like Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike, The Rock, and more. Since the original movie turned out to be a hot mess, we're now being hit with a new one called 'Doom: Annihilation', which is slated to arrive this fall. © YouTube 'Doom: Annihilation', as we know it, is a direct-to-video adaptation of the Doom video game franchise. It's being produced by Universal 1440 Entertainment, a division of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Well, the first trailer of the movie just hit the internet yesterday, and it looks like the original developers of the game aren't really impressed. Here's the trailer if you haven't watched it yet - In all fairness, it's too early to judge a movie prematurely with just a trailer, but it doesn't seem to invoke any excitement whatsoever. In fact, when someone asked the developers of the original game 'id Software' about the trailer, they quickly disowned. Here, check it out - We're not involved with the movie. https://t.co/Du3wHSHk44 — DOOM (@DOOM) March 11, 2019 Well, let's just hope that the movie will be much more intriguing and action-packed than the trailer itself. 'Doom: Annihilation' is written and directed by Tony Giglio, and it stars Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Luke Allen-Gale and Nina Bergman.
  4. Samsung and Huawei have both announced their iterations of a folding smartphone but differ from each other in design — from the ground up. The two companies showed off the foldable smartphones a few days apart from each other, however, Huawei's CEO of mobile business just took a dig at Samsung. Talking to Business Insider, Richard Yu said that Huawei had originally developed a folding smartphone similar to the Galaxy Fold. However, the Chinese company decided to kill the smartphone because the design was "not good.” “I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen makes the phone too heavy," Richard Yu said about the Galaxy Fold, speaking to Business Insider. Huawei's Mate X is fundamentally different from Samsung's offering as a foldable smartphone. It has a single flexible display that folds and unfolds to become a smartphone or a tablet. Samsung's Galaxy Fold has a dedicated screen on the front of the device and separate larger screen to turn it into a tablet. However, Huawei's Mate X is quite slimmer than the Galaxy Fold which makes a bit more practical as it can fit easily in a pocket. Having said that, some also believe that Mate X is more susceptible to scratches as it is more delicate when compared to the Galaxy Fold. Both the folding smartphones cost a lot of money as the Mate X costs a staggering €2,299 ($2,600) while the Galaxy Fold costs €2,000 ($1,980). As of now, both smartphones only appeal to early adopters who are willing to spend money on the latest piece of tech.
  5. The Marvel universe is just that, a pure marvel. It boasts of a following that's no less religious about its super teams and superheroes, than the ones who believe in the existence of a higher order placed within holy shrines. An array of captivating movies and stunning characters have taken birth on-screen under the Marvel Studios banner over the years. From the 'X-Men' to 'Fantastic Four' and 'Spiderman' to 'Deadpool', Marvel universe's oeuvre is packed with the best of the best that there are in the arena. © Marvel Studios Yet, regardless of the marvellous stories, and powerful characters that have made their way to the silver screen over the years, with over close to 35 Oscar nominations to its credit, none of them actually came close to take the gilded dude home. However, Marvel's bad luck with Oscars seems to have come to an end as 'Black Panther' won an Oscar for the Best Costume Design in a Motion Picture. 'Black Panther' had earned seven Oscar nominations in the Academy Awards 2019, of which designer Ruth Carter's costume designs for the film brought home the gold! Not just that, Carter also became the first black woman to ever win under the Costume Design category. In her acceptance speech, Carter said, “ It's been my life's honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for honouring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen.” Apart from costume design, 'Black Panther' also won an Oscar for Best Production Design in a Motion Picture. Production designer Hannah Beachler also happens to be the first black artist to not only win under this category but also get nominated in the category in the last 90 years. Hannah Beachler to @laraspencer after becoming 1st African-American to win #Oscar in production design: "I want all the young women of color...to be able to now stand on my shoulders." Backstage #Oscars moments presented by @Cadillac. https://t.co/VY7QZnkOdq #KeepRising pic.twitter.com/tGxY3OFdUY — Good Morning America (@GMA) February 25, 2019 But if you thought that was it, you're wrong. It seems 'Black Panther' was on a mission to make up for all of Marvel's lost chances, and went on to bag an Oscar for Best Score in Motion Picture, which was accepted by composer Ludwig Goransson. It's been a good day for the cast and crew of 'Black Panther' and the rest of us Marvel fanatics. Wakanda Forever!
  6. ‎مسافر نے کنویں سے پانی بھرتی عورت سے مانگ کر پانی پیا۔ ‎عورت مہذب، خوبصورت اور اپنے اطوار سے نہایت ہی بھلی اور معصوم سی لگتی تھی۔ ‎آدمی نے پوچھا؛ تم نے کبھی عورتوں کی مکاری کے بارے میں تو نہیں سُنا ہوگا؟ ‎عورت نے پانی بھرنا چھوڑا اور ایک اونچی دھاڑ مار کر اتنے زور سے چیخ و پُکار کرتے ہوئے رونا شروع کیا کہ گاؤں کے لوگ بھی اس کی آہ و پکار سُن لیں۔ ‎آدمی عورت کی اس حرکت سے خوفزدہ ہوکر بولا، ‎تم ایسا کیوں اور کس لئے کر رہی ہو؟ عورت نے کہا؛ تاکہ گاؤں والے آ کر تجھے قتل کر ڈالیں کیونکہ تو نے مجھے تکلیف دی ہے اور میرا دل دُکھایا ہے۔ آدمی گھگھیاتے ہوئے بولا؛ میری بات سُنو، ‎میں ایک مسکین اور اپنے کام سے کام رکھنے والا مسافر ہوں ، ‎میں بھلا کیونکر تمہیں تکلیف پہنچاؤں گا؟ ‎میں تو بس تمہاری معصومیت سے متاثر ہوا تھا تو پوچھ بیٹھا کہ تم نے تو یقیناً عورتوں کی مکاری کے بارے میں کبھی نہیں سُن رکھا ہوگا؟ ‎تم ایک مہذب اور حسین و جمیل عورت ہو، مگر میں خدا خوفی رکھنے والا انسان ہوں، ‎مجھے تم سے کیا لینا دینا کہ موقع پا کر تم سے بات کرنے کی خواہش کرونگا؟ ‎اس بار عورت نے اپنا مشکیزہ اُٹھا کر اپنے اوپر اُنڈیل کر اپنے آپ کو پانی سے تربتر کر لیا۔ ‎آدمی کی حیرت اس بار اور بھی دو چند ہوگئی۔ ‎پوچھا اب کیا ہوا کہ تُم نے اتنی محنت سے کنویں سے نکالا پانی اپنے اوپر ڈال کر اپنے آپ کو بھگو لیا۔ ‎ابھی یہ بات ہو ہی رہی تھی کہ گاؤں والے لوگ کنویں تک پہنچ گئے۔ ‎عورت نے اُن لوگوں کو بتایا کہ میں کنویں میں گر گئی تھی۔ ‎اور آج اگر یہ مُسافر یہاں نہ ہوتا اور مجھے باہر نا کھینچتا تو میں مر ہی گئی تھی۔ ‎لوگوں نے اس آدمی کے اس احسان کے بدلے اُسے گلے لگا کر شکریہ ادا کیا اور اُس کی ہمت و جوانمردی کا تذکرہ کرنے لگے۔ ‎گاؤں کے لوگوں کے ساتھ عورت واپس جانے لگی تو اس آدمی نے پوچھا، اپنی ان دونوں حرکتوں کے پیچھے تمہاری کیا حکمت و دانائی تھی یہ تو بتاتی جاؤ ! ‎عورت کہنے لگی کہ بس اسی طرح ہی ہر عورت ہوا کرتی ہے؛ ‎اگر اُسے اذیت دو گے تو تمہیں قتل کرا دینے سے کم پر راضی نہیں ہوگی۔اور اگر آُسے راضی اور خوش رکھو گے تو تمہیں بھی خوش و خرم رکھے گی۔ Translated Version Passengers ask for water recruitment from the wells, water beloved. The woman was civilized, beautiful and very good with her shortcomings and was innocent. The man asked; you have never heard about women's guile? The woman left the water and killed a high roar and started crying with so loud, that the people of the village would also listen to her sigh. The man said to be afraid of this move of the woman, Why are you doing this? The woman said; so that the village will kill you, because you have hurt me, and my heart is duḵھạy̰ạ. The man gھgھy̰ạtے said; my word is materialistic, I am a needy and a traveler to work with my work, How will I be able to hurt you? I was just impressed by your innocence, so ask, " you have never heard about women's guile You are a civilized and a beautiful woman, but I am a man who is going to be they, What do I want to do with you to get the chance to talk to you?

The woman said, " just like that every woman happened; If you hurt her , she will not be pleased to kill you, and if you are pleased and rejoice, you will be happy.
  7. In an avalanche of political biopics this year, there is a new surprise entry which no one knew about. After 'The Accidenal Prime Minister' and 'Thackeray' creating a major buzz in the nation, the trailer for a biopic on Rahul Gandhi dropped today, completely unannounced. Before we even begin to dissect it, let's just have a look at it first. The trailer follows a young Rahul swimming while his grandmother Indira Gandhi looks upon him dotingly. It is established that he shares a very warm relationship with his grandmom and his father and the death of the PM affects him more than others. 'My Name Is Raga' Trailer Out: Rahul Gandhi's Biopic Unveils First Look #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi @INCIndia @WithPGV @rahulgandhi2020 @rupeshpaul @priyankac19 @BJP4India @AjayLalluINC @SaralPatel @Chiranjeev_INC https://t.co/jOavO0AOLD pic.twitter.com/erMQskqHap — News World India (@NewsWorldIN) February 10, 2019 The trailer then shows a caricature (if I may call it that) of ex PM Manmohan Singh and an agitated Modi Ji as well. We see the grown up leader form of Rahul Gandhi who ends up winning hearts of everyone. The trailer ends on a very vague note and while the acting and dialogue delivery is quite questionable, we wonder why couldn't the direction be a bit more serious? This looks more like a parody and that's exactly what social media is wondering about. Brace yourself, biopic on Rahul Gandhi is on its way. The trailer is terribly cheap, it's as poor as his political ability.. Such a third class making & what a director is chosen who has made legendary movies in the past. ðð #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi https://t.co/gUzml5VEe1 — Vikram Joshi (@vikramajoshi) February 9, 2019 Trailer starts with "tumne hume jeetna sikhaya hai"ð Is this movie made by @RahulGandhi haters to troll him under the pretense of a bio pic?ð#MyNameIsRaGa https://t.co/28x8JqR24d — Voice Noteswali Krutika ð¹ð (@certifiedKruti) February 9, 2019 People are wondering if this is some sort of an elaborate joke and if the movie is releasing on 1st April. When is it getting released 1st April 2019 it seemsðð https://t.co/OeKTyveCgM — RAKESH KUMAR SINGH (@Hanibals) February 10, 2019 Bahut ho ghatiya cast and dialogue delivery hai. Full paisa barbaad trailer and would be movie. Ye @RahulGandhi ko badnaam karne ki saazish hai. — तनà¥à¤®à¤¯ à¤à¥à¤¨ (@tanmaygoon) February 9, 2019 The man deserves better than this for sure. Let's just hope the movie is better than this trailer.
  8. Nothing spoils one's mood more than a bad haircut. Every time you visit your hairdresser, you shouldn't have to leave feeling like you are dying a little from the inside. Sure, it's not the end of the world. But at that exact moment, it sure feels like it. Well, hair sure can grow back quickly but it still doesn't undo the damage. Reassuring enough? If not, you could expand your hat collection. But what's key is to amend these little errors while getting a haircut. Follow this step-by-step definitive guide to avoid getting an awkward haircut: 1. Research Properly © Gettyimages Being people who don't even buy a piece of clothing without doing a fair bit of research, it is surprising how many people go to the salon without any information. Do a fair bit of research about the type of hair you have and what kind of cut you should go with. You can even go to your hairstylist for a consultation prior to the day of getting a haircut. 2. Consider A Little Show And Tell © angieslist Fancy a haircut sported by an actor or an athlete? You may as well get it. Do a little social media digging and find a haircut you like. Show your barber that image and ask if it can be replicated with your hair type and face shape. Keep your options open and keep backups. The only way to fend off a bad haircut is to make sure you get a good one. 3. Pay Attention To The Finishing Touches © liveabout Every man knows that more than the process, it's the last 10 minutes of the haircut that actually makes or breaks a look. The finishing touches can do more for your haircut than the cutting part. Pay attention to the finishing touches, men. This is the perfect opportunity to get some styling advice. Even the most impressive haircut wouldn't be helpful if you don't do it justice by using the correct styling method and products. Ask your hairstylist for styling tips and products to keep your mane as good every day! 4. Don't Be Afraid To Mix It Up © gettyimages When men find a salon, tailor, barber and even a bartender that they like, they never go to anyone else. These are men's ride-or-die people. If you're one of those people and are sick of sporting the same hairstyle for years, maybe it's time to switch. To be able to communicate to your barber is a task in its own that you shouldn't skip. But if you've tried to communicate with your hairstylist about that and keep getting the same old look, switch. Don't be afraid to take the plunge. Bonus advice: Schedule your haircut appointments every 4 weeks to keep your trim fresh AF. Follow these guidelines and you will definitely save yourself the pain of looking for new hats to cover up an awkward haircut.
  9. Joining Chelsea from Real Madrid for a then club-record fee of 60 million pounds, Alvaro Morata was looked upon as the next big striker who would go on rule the goal-scoring charts for the Blues in the Premier League. But, contrary to popular perception, Morata suffered a goal drought that eventually saw him becoming the weakest link at the Stamford Bridge. Amid high criticism and consistent backlash from fans, the Spanish could only make 45 appearances for the Blues - wherein he scored just 16 goals - before being loaned out to Atletico Madrid until the end of the 2019-20 season. While Gonzalo Higuain occupied his place in the Chelsea and immediately made an impact scoring twice on his home debut, Morata's poor run continued on his first game for Madrid. Gonzalo Higuain is the 1st @ChelseaFC player to score twice on their home #PL debut for the club since Mario Stanic v West Ham in August 2000 pic.twitter.com/qUSGRoF6we — Premier League (@premierleague) February 2, 2019 The second-placed La Liga side had a vital opportunity to close the gap on leader Barcelona after they dropped points following a 2-2 draw with Valencia. But, the Diego Simeone side struggled to break down Real Betis before stuttering to a 0-1 defeat at the Benito Villamarin stadium. Morata was preferred for full 90 minutes, but the Spaniard had little influence on the game. The Madrid forward had four efforts on goal but none managed to go past Betis shot-stopper Pau Lopez. A 63-minute handball by Felipe Luis inside the penalty box gave the hosts a chance to take the lead and Sergio Canales made no mistake from the spot-kick. Real Betis goal. Barcelona go six points clear on top as it stands. #RealBetis #Barcelona #atleticomadrid pic.twitter.com/hoL7bVHtA0 — Maestro Messi (@Messischip) February 3, 2019 The victory was Betis' first against Madrid since Simeone took over late in 2011. On the other hand, the visitors suffered their first loss in 19 league games on Morata's debut. Simeone's team was unbeaten since their 0-2 loss at Celta Vigo in the third of games. Their latest setback was only the third loss for Atletico in 33 games in all competition this season. For a man who has been desperate to break away from his slump at Chelsea, Morata did his reputation no good following a poor show on his debut for Madrid. Owing to his lacklustre form, the Spanish footballer became the butt of all jokes with football fans taking turns to troll him on the social media.

  10. If you're a Game of Thrones follower, you'd know by now the last and final season is almost two and a half months away. While we can't wait for April to come, we're also ardently following all the gossip that surrounds the last season ,especially about how it ends. There are countless theories so far and we're wondering which one of them might be true! (c)Warner Bros Television While us commoners may not know what lies ahead, the 'Game of Thrones' actors, on the other hand, surely know what's in the offing and they don't shy away, while talking about it with their friends and significant others! Yes, this is exactly what happened when GoT's Jon Snow aka Kit Harington revealed the ending to his wife Rose Leslie and what happened after, was well, quite unfortunate! (c)Twitter During a radio talk show Kit Harington revealed that Rose Leslie asked him how the series ended. Being the good and honest husband that he is, he told her the ending. But right after, Leslie certainly didn't fancy the ending much and things went sore between them when she didn't talk to Harington for 3 days! "I told my wife last year how it ended, and she wouldn't talk to me for about three days. And she'd asked!" said Kit. (c)Instagram While we're not sure what he may have told her but we're sure it was something that truly disturbed her and her mood was upset over it. Either that or the ending was absolutely unexpected and she realised she shouldn't have asked Kit for it, regardless. We're just really hoping hard though that Kit is still alive at the end of season 8 and that's not the reason Rose was upset in the first place. Rose Leslie is definitely still very much attached to the show, as she played a wildling called Ygritte, who also happened to be Jon Snow's love interest. It's understandable why she would be upset with Kit and not speak to him for three days. Not a favourable ending, assumably? (c)HBO Kit in the interview was asked, if he as an actor liked the ending of GoT, to which he said he can't reveal much and can't even state whether it's a happy or a sad ending! "It's quite nice walking around, which will only happen for a few months before everyone's seen it, knowing. I know and no one else does. I know how it wraps up. I think it's gonna be groundbreaking" he said. (c)Warner Bros Television While there is no news about season 8 leaks, we also know extra precaution has been taken to keep that from happening, especially at the locations where the show was shot. In fact, sometimes they even shot fake scenes to confuse the onlookers a little. Well, by the looks of it all, we're under the assumption the ending is quite groundbreaking indeed and something really unexpected and we really can't wait to watch the final season, coming out in April 2019.
  11. Bad breath is like a first impression. People never forget the stench once they've visited your bad breath land. This can really bring you down on the likability-scale, as people can get put off by this. This can also hamper your chances of dating and or even social interaction in general. Fixing a bad breath comes down to a proper diet, a fixed oral hygiene routine and floss. Here are some quick ways that can fix your bad breath. 1. Replace Your Toothbrush Quarterly Don't use a toothbrush whose bristles have outworn themselves or a brush that you can't remember when you purchased. Bad idea. Old bristles have accumulated dirt that builds over time and instead of cleaning imparts bacteria to your teeth. 2. Floss Everyday While brushing is great. There will be gunk stuck in your teeth that even the sharpest of bristles might not be able to reach/ To get those, you need to floss. Trust us, it's this clingy gunk that acts as a breeding ground for the bad stench. 3. Buy A Tongue Scraper © everydayhealth While it might come across as a toy, this effectively scrapes out residue that could possibly produce a foul smell from your mouth. 4. Tooth Paste & Mouthwash Changing your toothpaste and mouth wash can also significantly improve your oral hygiene. You need to find products that work for and keep your mouth fresh for a longer period of time.
  12. My father being a semi-professional football player, fitness came pretty naturally to me. Right from my early teens, my father had me on my feet and taught me exercising. Every morning I used to accompany him and his fellow players to the practice sessions. It was here where I learned the basics of stretching, running and basic exercising. Soon after, I was sent off to a boarding school where sports were kept at the helm of all things. Of course, what my father taught me helped me a great deal to shine bright at school athletics. First Encounter With The Weights It was during my first year at college, that I got a chance to work out in proper gym. It was 2007, the very first year of my lifting journey. It all started there. As it happens, even I had no idea about nutrition and training. Nope, none! I used to follow suit that was set by the desi trainers at the gym. Doing bro splits six times a week and eating whatever came in sight became the norm for me. Some desi-trainers even sold me mass gainers, having me dream of a poster boy physique. Since I was very, or let's say skinny, I bought into the fake dream. Even when I was short on pocket money, I hustled my way through buying mass gainers. Soon after, in the following months, I started looking skinny fat. I did get a bit bigger but most of it was nothing but fat. My dream seemed fragile at this moment. I had no money to afford a personal trainer and thought that it was VERY expensive to afford one. I was left heartbroken. The Time When I Ate Boiled Chicken Like An Idiot! A few years ahead, I met this guy at the gym. He seemed sensible. I asked for his nutrition advice and he asked me to eat half a kilo boiled chicken and 10 egg whites to achieve a ripped body. Since they looked good, I started following their dumb advice. The diet was SO bad that I gave up just a few days into it. Digestion and acne issue started just about immediately. I then met a guy who was a professional bodybuilder. Right off the bat, he asked me to get on steroids, which of course I was completely unaware about. I was so blinded by the dream of a good physique, that I almost made up my mind to start a steroid cycle. Thank god that I was so short on funds at that time, that I had no option but to not do it. Education Days passed but the passion in me didn't die. I started reading about natural bodybuilding on the internet. Alongside, I started making friends with sensible and 'fitness-educated' guy on too. It was from here on where I started learning about the importance of nutrition and training. Self taught, I applied the learning and they did work, but at as much as I wanted. This didn't discourage me. I didn't look back kept reading EVERYTHING that was readily available. This photoshoot transformation which I recently had is all due to the help of Nagarjun Chowdary who is an intern with GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness coaching platform. This is the best shape I have been in by far and everything was done 100% naturally. Fitness to me is a lifestyle which should be a part of life for everyone.
  13. If you are here, it means that you occupy either of the two extremes when it comes to Salman Khan. Yes, that's true, there can't be a grey area when it comes to Salman Khan. You either love the man or not. Plain and simple, and we believe many Bhai jaan admirers would agree to this proclamation. Now, coming to the most interesting bit of this story, that is, the massive flop shows Salman Khan has had in his career - yes guys, just admit it that it's a possibility for him, just as much for any other A-lister (or actor for that matter) in Bollywood. In his career spanning across three decades, the actor has had quite a few box office disasters to his credit. We picked out 17 such utterly disastrous movies which crashed at the box office. However, at the very onset, allow us to put a disclaimer across that certain movies mentioned in this list might have been popular amongst movie-goers, but were not commercially successful. Get ready to behold some epic flops featuring Salman Khan, that one can easily use to identify a true-blue, die-hard Bhaijaan fan: 1. Andaz Apna Apna Sure, this one was hilarious, entertaining and went on to become a cult movie, but surprisingly, it simply didn't work at the box office commercially when it was launched in 1994. 2. God Tussi Great Ho This fantasy comedy, that also featured Bachchan Sr, was said to be inspired by the Hollywood movie 'Bruce Almighty'. It performed very poorly at the box office. 3. Tumko Na Bhool Payenge This 2002 action thriller starring Sushmita Sen, Dia Mirza and Inder Kumar, besides Sallu Bhai, gave its audience no thrill whatsoever. 4. Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaye This romantic film became a sad disappointment for Salman Khan fans, who simply couldn't appreciate this movie. 5. Chal Mere Bhai It is a comedy movie directed by David Dhawan, that also stars Sanjay Dutt and Karisma Kapoor. The movie crashed and burned and reports also suggested that the movie was similar to a Pakistani drama called 'Ankahi'. 6. Hello Brother Also starring Arbaaz Khan and Rani Mukerji in lead roles, the film was directed by Salman Khan's brother Sohail Khan, and was apparently inspired by the Malayalam film 'Aayushkalam'. 7. Janam Samjha Karo Starring Salman Khan and Urmila Matondkar in lead roles, with Shakti Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Monica Bedi in supporting roles, this was Andaleb Sultanpuri's directorial debut, and the only film he ever directed. 8. Suryavanshi Alright, please don't get us started on this. It just doesn't deserve the attention. 9. Dil Tera Aashiq Starring Salman and Madhuri Dixit in lead roles, this movie was another commercial disaster of Salman's career. 10. Chandramukhi With Salman Khan and Sridevi coming on screen for the first time, the movie created a lot of buzz, but failed to live up to the expectations. 11. Nishchaiy This 1992 release starring Salman and Karishma Kapoor along with Rajesh Khanna did terribly at the box office. 12. Jaagruti Well, what should we say? 99 per cent of us were unaware that this film even existed! 13. Biwi Ho To Aisi This movie was Salman's acting debut, and his dialogues were dubbed. Even so, the movie didn't prove to be the ideal launch for his career. 14. Veer This multi-starrer action drama was another major disappointment for all Salman Khan fans! 15. Khamoshi Well, regardless of a great story and beautiful songs, this movie crashed commercially at the box office!

  16. Intermittent Fasting is the crazy hype train that everyone in the fitness industry wants to jump aboard. People believe it to have a few magical effects. These magical effects are mainly associated with fat loss. People assume that if you do not eat for a few hours in a day, your body becomes a fat burning 'furnace' and make you leaner than a shredded bodybuilder in a couple of weeks. © Thinkstock Well, the actual thing that Intermittent Fasting helps with is adherence to a caloric deficit. Some people just find it easier to eat less food if they only eat a couple of meals in a day. It is all about that single aspect. I have written a piece on Intermittent Fasting in the past as well. The other side of the story is that people have started doing Intermittent Fasting for muscle gain. They think that: 1. Fasting will increase their growth hormone and make them bigger. 2. They will not put on body fat as they are fasting. Guess what? You are TERRIBLY wrong. Let's understand what you really need to do to build muscle: 1. Resistance training 2. Progressive overload 3. A calorie surplus with adequate protein 4. Rest and recovery Now let's understand how Intermittent Fasting can wreck all of this: 1. Resistance Training A lot of people have this misconception that if you do not eat and work out, it will elevate anabolic hormones and help them build muscle and lose fat at the same time. Well, these anabolic hormonal adaptations that happen when training are similar to those you'd have if you trained after a meal. Another thing to know is that even if these hormones are elevated, they are going to be in physiological ranges. You will not become jacked like a bodybuilder on steroids. If fasting made you muscular like an enhanced bodybuilder, why would people even buy steroids, especially considering the side effects of it? 2. Progressive Overload © Tnation You may get a few training sessions easily in a fasted state, yes. Will you be able to progress long-term with it? I don't think so. You may go to the gym and slog your ass like a laborer. You won't progress going forward as you are hungry and depleted of energy. Having a meal before your workout, especially carbs, will provide you fuel to lift more and longer. 3. A Calorie Surplus With Adequate Protein To gain weight and in turn muscle, you need to eat more calories in a day than you burn off. Yeah, the area people go wrong is they stuff their face with as much food as they like and get fat. That is a fallacy of their plan, not the idea of eating more calories. If you fast, it will be simply difficult for you to consume enough calories in a day. Apart from that, there are studies that show you need to eat protein at equal intervals to keep elevated muscle protein synthesis through the day. There is even a study that shows that even eating the same amount of protein, the group that broke it down in more frequent intervals (4-5 meals) gained more muscle compared to those who ate it in lesser meals (1-2 meals). 4. Rest And Recovery This mainly comes down to your sleep and stress levels. An additional aspect of it is the food intake. There is a reason that on a cut or a fat loss, your recovery is poor. That is because you are not eating enough calories for the same. If you fast and it reduces your calorie intake, you will not recover and might even start losing progress or dropping strength in the gym.

  17. I call Delhi my home. And why shouldn't I? I've lived here for over 30 years and went through all of its phases it had to offer. As a child, I developed chronic bronchitis while staying in the city and it made me uncomfortable from time to time. It was nothing major to worry about because it was latent and it hardly ever occurred again in my growing-up years. But as the years progressed with my time in Delhi, the latency of my health issue started brimming to the surface. It wasn't because my lungs were not functioning well. it was because the air quality in Delhi subsequently dipped. (c)Twitter The last five years have been a literal living nightmare in Delhi with the bad air quality that surrounds us and let's face it, we've done nothing productive to counter or tackle this grave issue. Instead, we've been counter-productive towards this very problem and enhanced it in a way that we can't seemingly make it better instantly. But I wouldn't blame the commoners as much as I'd blame the government and together, we've managed to make Delhi the most polluted city in the world. Yes. Let that information sink in, slowly. Imagine, living in a smoke bubble constantly, trying to find your way out. Well, let me tell you, there is none, and the only probable solution that'll ever come out of this is if we dearly depart this highly toxic city. (c)Times Of India Recently, I caught the flu pretty bad due to severe weather change and it developed into a bad chest congestion bringing my bronchitis back. I went to the doctor immediately because I was literally choking and when I got there, I had to wait for 1.5 hours to see her. Why? Because everyone around me was really sick. When I finally got my time with her she told me I was the 106th patient to come see her for the same reason. The symptoms appearing after breathing in the toxic air are- wet cough, wheezing, chest congestion, eye burns and swollen glands and other lung-related ailments and the doctor had a fair share of patients dealing with the same that day. The worst bit- she said, was that 60 cases out of the 106 cases she'd seen that day were babies and children. (c)Twitter "I get a lot of patients on a daily basis fighting pollution-related ailments and my only advice to them is leave the city. There is nothing else we can do right now. Especially children" - Dr Mugdha, Fortis Hospital. #Delhi's Anand Vihar at 999, area around US Embassy, Chanakyapuri at 459 & area around Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium at 999, all under 'Hazardous' category in Air Quality Index (AQI) pic.twitter.com/QX7z5UYOl9 — ANI (@ANI) 8 November 2018 But it's not just the lack of information and awareness. My doctor telling me to leave this city to improve my health is not the solution and backing down and bowing in front of it will not make it any better. The only solution left is to fight the air, which will continue to make the Delhi winters worse. The lethal level of pollutant PM2.5- the particles of which can easily penetrate the lungs and cause respiratory diseases was at a 'hazardous' 644ins some parts of Delhi about two days before Diwali this year. But Diwali left us with little or no mercy and the air quality worsened instantly, right after Diwali. The air quality oscillated between 'poor' and 'very poor' because people defied the Supreme Court's orders to not burst hazardous crackers in the first place. The air quality recorded with an overall index rising to 574, which falls in the 'severe-plus emergency' category according to data by the centre run-SAFAR. (c)Twitter So, this is how it really works- An AQI ( air quality index) between 0-50 is considered good, 51-100 is 'satisfactory', 101-200 is moderate, 201-300 is 'poor', 301-400 is 'very poor', and 401-500 is 'severe'. Any guesses which category we fall under? Dear Delhi: we just let ourselves down with this brazen contempt of the Supreme Court. We were better than this, I thought... — barkha dutt (@BDUTT) 7 November 2018 "The origin of Delhi air pollution problem is linked to the development of it obviously. When Delhi's population started expanding, construction dust, which is a high factor to the pollution in Delhi contributed to air pollution a lot and so has industrialisation and obviously vehicular emissions, which are increasing air pollution all year around. The last 3-4 years stubble burning came to the narrative and stubble burning only impacts pollution during winter. So, all year around, waste burning, plus the mentioned issues become contributors to the pollution factor to Delhi. (c)Twitter From a solving perspective, obviously sustainable development is one, improving your waste practices is one and protecting our trees - are the small solutions we can work towards or a more long-term benefit" - Tamseel Hussain, an environmentalist who also runs #letmebreath, which is India's first pollution storytelling community, which started last year during peak Diwali season. The depletion, though, in air quality hasn't just been witnessed this year. In 2017 the AQI pos Diwali was 340, in 2016 it was 445and in 2015 it was 360, all falling under the 'severe' quality. "The Delhi government has proposed the Graded Response Action Plan, which we still have to see the impact of and the central government has proposed the National Clean Air action plan The thing is, everyone keeps blaming that people need to contribute but I think it's a combination of the government and people coming together and collaborating to solve this crisis" - Tamseel Hussain Long ago I was told that there was no culture in Delhi but a "vulture". Today I discovered that we are worse than vultures. We feed on ourselves. How else do you explain crackers going on in brazen violation of court orders, leaving behind choking smog putting all of us to shame. — Anil Swarup (@swarup58) 7 November 2018 While we think the problem lies with the people who've been burning firecrackers all year round, I solemnly believe it's not just them. I have witnessed a terrible drop in air quality because I am prone to sicknesses when that happens since the past three years, and it's something that happens frequently and not just during Diwali. Yes, the air quality does worsen during Diwali but we suffer a lot more from the smoke of crops that burn and we don't realise it. But as ardent citizens of a country that's losing its face in the name of corrupt practices, we can surely rectify these issues and make them more minor than major. As Tamseel points out, we can do our own bit to maybe curb the pollution issue so the kids in our city can breathe fresh air, instead of being rushed to the hospital to be nebulised. (c)Twitter I wish to go back to the Delhi I grew up in, where the air was cleaner than what it is today and for that to happen, we need to encourage more changes in and around us and obviously, within our lifestyles as well.
  18. Aamir Khan's annual mega release, 'Thugs of Hindostan' just hit the screens today and Twitterati has already gone into a frenzy penning their thoughts about the movie. The plot of the fantasy-drama is said to revolve around a band of thugs with Amitabh Bachchan as their leader, who decides to challenge the British Raj and claim freedom for India. The movie also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in supporting roles. With the first show lined up as early as 9 in the morning today, Tweet-scape is brimming with honest reviews from movie-goers. © Yash Raj Films As per the reviews so far, the much-anticipated film seems to be receiving a mixed bag of reactions, with many claiming that Aamir's acting in the movie as the bad guy comes across as forced, while the first half is also being claimed to be a bit too slow for people's liking. However, the virtual critics have some good things to say for Sr. Bachchan and the use of VFX in the movie. On the other hand, the director of the movie is receiving a LOT of backlash online. Here are some honest (and funny) Twitter reviews we picked up for you to read through before booking your own tickets for the movie: This is worst movie of the aamir khan till now. I dont know how he signed for the movie and Jaya bacchan who said why AB signed for shit HNY now what she has to say for BigB for this shit movie of the decade.

  19. Relationships are great. Until they aren't! Sometimes, even the ideal relationships start becoming toxic. Out of nowhere, you start feeling that you aren't happy anymore and it might be best to part ways. © Warner Brothers At times, it's true. When you spend a fair amount of time with your partner and get to know them better, you realise that they aren't the person what you are looking for. In that case, you can consider parting ways. But at times, the problems arise because of petty reasons which are quite normal and can be dealt with easily. Following are three such subtle sighs which will tell you that your relationship is turning toxic and you should work on it to avoid a bad breakup: 1. Unnecessary Fights Every couple fights, this isn't anything to worry about. But if your fights become regular; and when you are with your partner if most of your time goes arguing over unnecessary things, then there is something to worry about. You should find out the actual reasons for your fights. Communication is the key here. Talk to your partner; figure out what is it that you want from each other and then work on it. The whole drama can be avoided with just one healthy conversation. 2. Less Physical Intimacy When you two have lived together for a long time, then it's completely natural to not get intimate as much as you did at the start of your relationship. Daily *** does turn into twice or thrice a week when you have lived together long enough. But if it has become non-existent, then it is a matter to worry about. You need to figure out the cause of it. © Dharma Productions It could be the mundanity, or maybe the emotional distance between you two. If it's the first one, time to spice things up and go '50 Shades of Grey'. But if it's the latter, you should take a deep look into your relationship. See what is driving you away from each other and then deal with the problem. 3. Unavailability & Ignorance If you feel like your partner is ignoring you, then it's a serious issue. It's completely okay to have personal space and some 'me-time', but if the interactions and communication are seizing to exist, then it means the relationship is going on the wrong road. And there's definitely a reason behind the growing distance. © Warner Brothers There is a good chance that your partner is no longer interested in you and that's why ignoring you. In this situation, the best you can do is calmly talk to them and tell them to share whatever is on their mind. And accordingly, you can work things out. It's not easy to find the right partner. If you think you have found one, work hard on your relationship to make it work. You never know if you'll get it again or not!
  20. As I stood on the curb for my ride to work this morning, I could see the man sitting inside his Fortuner on the other side of the road, haggling with a street vendor selling flowers. I wasn't privy to their conversation (disagreements rather) of course, but whatever transpired between the two left the florist visibly upset, as he shouted after the SUV, fast disappearing into the oncoming flow of the Monday morning traffic. The man got his flowers, but something about the exchange had left the vendor with a sullen face. I want to believe it was to do with the money, I might be wrong to make that assumption, but on the other hand, I might be more than right too. © Dharma Productions The incident left a bad taste in my mouth, and it got me thinking, “well, SUV dude, whatever that was, you're gonna have to pay for it elsewhere...you see, karma is a bitch”, but even as I said that to myself, I wasn't quite convinced by it. You see, the man in the swanky SUV still got his flowers, and he'll put them to use for whatever purpose he bought them. By the end of it he'll be a happy man, but the poor vendor will have to make do with his share of money and (bad)luck for the day, and that seemed pretty unfair, presuming that the guy in the SUV could have easily spared a few more bucks to strike a fair deal. Basically, what I am trying to say is that, I wasn't convinced (or ready) to wait for karma to take its own sweet time and bring the rich guy to justice. After all, we're a generation constantly petitioning for all things “instant”, so justice must also be meted out instantly in this case, right? Wrong. I had just witnessed the universe prove me wrong. So, moral of the story, good things will still happen to bad people, and more often than not, karma will terribly fail to don the bitch face, when you most passionately want to see it unfurl. © Dharma Productions Did I just hear some protesting squirms coming from you? But hold your horses for a bit, I have a point to make here. Have you heard of the maxim, “justice delayed is justice denied”? Well, I happen to come from that school of thought. Which means, I want to see justice get served ASAP. But this is India, the land of Gods, and it's also the land of the rich and the powerful. Most of all, it's a land ruled by the ever mighty patriarchy, which has a definite soft spot for the rich and powerful. You know where that leads us, right? Take the ongoing Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar row that's got all the gossip mills across the country churning out updates day in and day out. That's one of the most recent examples to lead you to my point. While it's not proven whether Patekar is guilty or not, it cannot be denied that the reported incident obviously didn't cost him anything over the years, whereas Tanushree had to abandon her dreams and career, under the alleged threats and harassment being meted out to her by Patekar and his “powerful” friends. © Dharma Productions The same trope can be found in Salman Khan's (in)famous hit-and-run case, and we're all well aware of where the case led, and the outcome it bore for the actor. Nothing happened to him, obviously, his popularity, power or career! Be it Salman's charitable venture with 'Being Human' or Patekar's goodwill towards the farmers of Maharashtra, they seem to be able to hide their misdeeds well behind these moves. No, I am not disregarding the good they may have done for the needy, but I am saying that this sure does the job of covering up the mess they leave in their wake. For most people, it becomes enough to forgive and forget these men's bad deeds. And this is the point their fans and defendants step in yapping about the “good” they have been doing for the people. For some strange (read stupid) reason, their outwardly “good deeds” seem to be enough for the lesser endowed people to believe in their “goodness”. © Dharma Productions You may be interested to know that there's an entire research done on the psychology behind this move, and how people feel that by investing in good deeds, one is actually investing in good karma. You can check out the findings of the research here. So, basically, whether I am looking at the guy in the SUV or Salman, or more recently Patekar and his antics, it seems more believable that even though karma is a bitch, good things will continue to happen to bad people, because apparently in the 21st century, you can't even trust karma to get its act right.
  21. Disclaimer: At MensXP Health we are neither against, nor for the usage of steroids. It's completely a personal choice. Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) or Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) are the bread and butter of many fitness professionals these days. Either they take them, or they give it to their clients, or a combination of the two happens. Well, the advantages are pretty obvious and when you learn of them, it is that magic solution you would love to be on. As you will put twice the muscle mass just sitting at home vs. someone who would slog their ass in the gym day in and day out as shown in the study by Bhasin et. al. and mentioned in this article. But That Is The Good Part. What About The Bad, And Even The Ugly? In this piece, I would be covering the harsh side-effects of taking these drugs that you should know of before deciding to jump on them. © YouTube 1. Acne Taking PEDs, especially testosterone, has almost everyone using it develop acne on their shoulders, chest, and back. This is because the hormones interfere with the pores of the skin. In certain cases, severe acne is also observed leaving permanent scars or marks in those affected areas. 2. Balding As some steroids increase testosterone, it leaves men more prone to a receding hairline or balding. Not everyone who takes steroids will experience balding but those who are already losing their hair or have a thin hairline will almost all the time go fully bald on the usage of anabolic steroids. 3. Testicles Shrink Due to the increase in testosterone by injecting, the balance of testosterone to estrogen (yes, men too have it) goes for a toss and this can lead to your testicles getting shrunk. This is one of the common side effects observed in a majority of constant users. 4. Testicular Atrophy Continuous usage of anabolic steroids has shown to completely shut down natural testosterone production which ultimately leads to hypogonadism aka testicular atrophy aka bye bye balls. 5. Development Of Breast Tissue Due to the increase in the estrogen levels due to the usage of some anabolic steroids, the mammary gland or the breast tissue develops and grows in size. When this happens, a lot of men develop the breast tissue and it can lead to the formation of man boobs and gyno. 6. Increased Risk Of Heart Disease A few side effects of steroid usage to the heart are enlargement of the heart, hardening of the arteries, higher blood pressure, and huge elevations in the artery-clogging cholesterol LDL.

  22. Imagine you are scrolling through your Facebook feed, the autoplay is turned on and you are greeted by a wild cacophony of sounds that instantly make you cringe and you wish you could get a detox done, right then and there. But alas, that is not to be. There is no coming back from the trauma of living through Tahir Shah's 'Eye To Eye' even if it was merely for a few seconds. While most decent human beings would try to recuperate from the shock and let it go, I decided to turn my pain into a means of mass torture to put things in sync with the 'Morose Monday' #feels. In the last few years, numerous 'viral' songs hit our screens and made us pull at our hair in the sheer hope that anything besides this, would be a better source of agony. So I decided to pick the 7 most terrible (read dardnaak) viral songs in the recent years that made our ears bleed. 1. Dhinchak Pooja 'Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj' & 'Dilon Ka Shooter Hai Mera Scooter' With 36,118,838 and 12,160,485 views respectively, who would guess these are a sham in the name of songs? When Dhinchak Pooja's 'Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj' came out, it was so widely circulated across social media platforms that you couldn't have escaped it even if you tried. The pain was for real and lasted for weeks to come even after you went ahead on a social media detox. 2. Pikotaro - 'PPAP' (Pen Pineapple Apple Pen) While the obscure lyrics of this one apparently made the song “catchy” for some and even evoked laughter at first, I wouldn't say I could tolerate it for a second time, even as it was picking up the pace in India. My Instagram and Facebook feed was literally blowing up with this guy's face and his strange song talking about a non-existent fruity pen that nobody really gave a shit about. Also, what was with that outfit?! 3. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan - 'Love Charger' God must have his ways of bringing people to justice because after putting people through this torture, it is only a miracle the victims have survived to tell their stories. I wonder who wrote such horrid lyrics and then added such ear-puncturing music to produce such a ghastly composition that will trouble generations to come, who have access to this god-awful piece. 4. Om Prakash - 'Bol Na Aunty Aau Kya' It is with a heavy heart that I am including this song to the story, because neither the song nor the lyrics possess anything of value to go viral. The lyrics are sexist, demeaning and introduce rape as the normal outcome of wearing short clothes or hanging out with friends. The very fact that people found such a derogatory song entertaining and funny is appalling, to say the least. 5. Vennu Mallesh - 'It's My Life Whatever I Wanna Do' Another masterpiece that shattered the little semblance of tolerance we had for upcoming talents. Who decides to fund such songs and even rent out an entire studio for such a joke of a music video? And to top it all, this went viral because, of course, we had never heard anything of the sort before. 6. Rinku Bhabhi - 'Mere Husband Mujhe Pyaar Nahi Karte' I wouldn't lie but I had a fit of laughter the first time I heard this song. I know I said the first time because I am guilty of having heard it two more times when my sister and best friend decided to make me relive the moments of “ecstasy” during two different occasions. I really cannot say I can make much sense out of this. 7. Taher Shah - 'Eye To Eye' & 'Angel' I really have no words for these two jewels right here, but if you have heard these songs, know that your life wasn't the same after. Also, you gotta watch both the videos to share my pain. Please. Tell us, which of these make it to your most painful viral videos list?
  23. “The Blond Myth” or Lee priest was never the politically correct goody-good guy. He spoke about matters which other bodybuilders would not dare to speak a word of. The Australian IFBB professional would openly talk about his gear usage and the political games that took place inside the most prestigious of Bodybuilding Federations. Later, he was banned for a lifetime by the IFBB. © YouTube Let's start from the beginning. Lee grew up in Wallsend, a western suburb of Newcastle. Lee was hitting the iron from the tender age of 12 years. Born to a mother who was a bodybuilder herself, it was not a miracle that a young hardworking 13-year-old Lee won his first bodybuilding competition. It didn't just stop there; he later won the 1989 and 1990 IFBB Australian Championships. By the time he was 17, he was already participating in the World Championships. He was not given a Pro Card even after winning the Mr. Australia title because of his young age. But determined Lee went to showcase his muscles in the Niagara Falls Championships which he won. He finally earned his Pro Card and became the youngest man ever to turn IFBB Pro at the age of 20. Note: The current record for being the youngest IFBB Pro is held by Jeff Seid. Training And Nutrition © YouTube “Off-season, I don't care how I look. They can call me a fat pig, which they do” said Lee in an interview given to Max Muscle in 1998. He is popularly called the dirtiest bulker for a reason. His offseason weight in 1998 was an astounding 285 pounds and that too when he was 5'4”. “I am yet to read a textbook that contributed more to my arm size than what I've learned from my own lifetime of lifting. Since age 13 (1985), I've trained my arms as a total package of biceps, triceps and forearms in the belief that they are equally important. These are the 17 arm fundamentals: 8 for biceps, 5 for triceps and 4 for forearms that I've always used.” says Lee. It was all about listening to your body for the Aussie bodybuilder. Most people were not a fan of his training style but everyone was shocked when they saw a humongous 20-year-old Lee in the Gold's Gym. This is what Jay Cutler said about Lee in an interview- “Freakiest bodybuilder I have ever seen in person was Lee Priest at the time, because he was 20 bro! He was insanely big. The guy could not even walk, he was that big”. Controversies © YouTube Lee is an outspoken person by nature and that has landed him in multiple controversies. His shrewd comments for the LGBT community or irrational comments on different religions have been on the news for a while. He is still active on many popular social media websites and YouTube. He was banned for a year from the IFBB for participating in another bodybuilding federation without permission. The ban was later extended to two years as Lee publicly criticized IFBB for being unfair. After a gap of 7 years, he made a comeback by winning the NABBA Mr. Universe competition in 2013 post which he announced his retirement.

  24. Posture is the shape and alignment of different body segments. Posture defects normally arise due muscle imbalance in certain muscle groups. For example, some muscles may be strong and short, while the opposing muscle groups could be long and weak. In simple terms, attaining correct posture means keeping each part of the body in alignment with the neighbouring body parts. Proper posture ensures all the muscles are balanced and supported. Correct posture is a simple but very important way to keep the many deep muscles in the back and spine healthy. This is much more than looking at it from the point of view of aesthetics. Good posture and back support are important to reduction of back pain and neck pain. Benefits Of A Correct Posture © YouTube A good posture will make you look slimmer, younger and make your clothes look better on you. More than that, it will keep your bones and joints in correct alignment so that our muscles are used correctly and with the right bio mechanics. It can also decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces that could result in degeneration of bones, arthritis and joint pain. There is lesser stress on the ligaments holding the spinal joints together, minimizing the chances of injury. Sitting and standing with proper postural alignment will increase efficiency with less fatigue and strain on the body's ligaments and muscles. Being aware of good posture is the first step and it is important to get yourself a postural analysis done to know about your plus points and limitations of the body. Exercising And Posture Correcting proper body posture can improve biomechanics at the gym and ensure your form and technique of each exercise is performed efficiently without causing and injury. Even from the perspective of day to day life preparedness, working on posture can help you perform certain tasks much better and easily. Do These 6 Exercises At Home 1) Partial Crunches © YouTube Although I don't really support partial reps in any form of exercises, in this particular case one of the core-strengthening workouts is the partial stomach crunch. Partial crunches build strength in both your lower back and associated stomach muscles, also making this a good exercise for people with spondylolysis. 2) Hamstring Stretches © YouTube Hamstring stretches are good to reduce tightness in the lower back and the back of the leg, where some of the muscles that support the work of the lower back are found. 3) Wall Sits © YouTube Incorporating wall sits for a few seconds every time you feel a lower back pain will make you feel better. 4) Pelvic Bridges © YouTube Bridging is a great exercise for back pain; it helps strengthen various supporting muscles for your back like the hamstrings, glutes, abdomen and hips. It also works directly to strengthen the lower back muscles. 5) Band Pull-Apart This is one of the most effective shoulder rehab exercises. To do this, all you need is a resistance band. They are usually colour coded, so pick one according to your strength. 6) Plank © YouTube This is one of the simplest exercises that can give you many benefits. Performing planks can improve your posture if done the right way. When performing the exercise, be sure to keep your legs straight, don't allow your lower back to drop, and ensure you are looking down at the floor. Conclusion Posture is mostly associated with some pain problems. Much of “poor posture” is actually just postural strain and bad ergonomic, and not really a postural problem at all. Many people seem to be affected to poor postures and postural strain, but these people also may not have a posture problem suffering from some pain. Many elements of poor posture are the result of long-term adaptation that is either difficult or impossible to change. One sure benefit to correcting posture is that it can affect mood, emotion and sensitivity to pain. Helius is one of Mumbai's most promising fitness professionals and part time kettle bell lecturer.
