  1. The majority of the people that I see in the gym have the same old idea about warm-up before beginning their workout. Five-to-seven minutes on a treadmill or spin bike and they will jump straight on to the bench press or squat rack and begin weight training. A lot of people don't even spend 5 minutes warming up their body but just perform a warm-up set before beginning the actual set. This is a clear invitation to injuries. If you also have been following a similar approach for warming up your body before exercise, read on to know one of the best ways to warm-up before training. Why Is Warming-Up Necessary? A warm-up before exercise prepares your body for the workout. It elevates the body temperature and increases heart rate and respiration. © Getty Images This, in turn, increases the flow of oxygenated blood to your working muscles. Secondly, a proper warm-up prepares you mentally as well for the upcoming workout. It will activate your neuro-muscular system to prepare your body for the upcoming movements. While some of you may think that warm-up is only for novices and beginners, even the most experienced and professional athletes also perform a good warm-up before their exercise. Step 1 – Getting Warmed Up Warming up your body can be done through various ways which include any form of cardiovascular exercise. The purpose of doing some form of cardiovascular exercise, in the beginning, is to elevate the heart rate and body temperature. You don't have to restrict yourself to the treadmill or stationary bikes but you can also choose to do skipping, jumping jacks or any other cardiovascular movement that you enjoy doing. © Getty Images Whatever option you choose amongst them, make sure that you gradually increase the effort. Don't just straight away increase the intensity. When you feel that your respiration rate has increased and the body temperature has risen slowly, you can stop doing this step for the warm-up. Step 2 – Foam Roll Though you could foam roll your entire body before beginning the workout, I suggest you at least foam roll the particular muscle group that you will be training that day. © Getty Images What a form roller does is that it mobilizes the fluid component of the tissue and activates as well as balances the muscle spindle. This, in turn, provides information to your body about the changes in the length and tension of the muscle that you are working on. If there is any specific muscle group that is stiff, make sure to foam roll it appropriately till the time it relaxes and there is a decrease in tenderness. Step 3 – Perform Dynamic Stretching © Getty Images Dynamic stretching is like informing your muscles that they are going to be used up extensively in the next few minutes. Dynamic stretching, in very simple words, means taking your muscles and joints through a full range of motion in multiple planes. I recommend including dynamic stretches for upper as well lower body so that your body is thoroughly prepared for the warm-up set. After performing the dynamic stretching for a couple of minutes, begin with the warm-up set for the exercise that you will be doing for the day.

  2. In this article, I'm not going to tell you about the basic stuff which everyone carries to the gym like perfume, towel, shaker, etc. © Dsptch Gym It's not about carrying a supplement shop and carrying things like: 1) BCAAs 2) fat burner pills 3) glutamine The below 5 essentials will help you in getting the best out of your training and will help you face your most challenging exercises with confidence. These 5 gym essentials can take your training to the next level if used properly. 1) Flat Shoes: Flat shoes are one of the best shoes for weight lifting. They have a solid grip over the gym mats and provide safety when lifting a heavy load. Flat sole shoes like converse, vans, etc. A huge benefit is the ability to activate more muscle and recruit more fibres. These shoes enable you to push through the floor much easier, which will allow you to produce more force during a lift. When you work out, especially during leg exercises you have to be driving through the heels. It is very hard to drive force through the heel in running shoes. The sole does not support that. Lifting shoes can help you to feel sturdier during heavy squats, deadlifts and any other free compound lift. 2) Knee Sleeves Or Wraps Knee sleeves or wraps protect your knees and give you the confidence to lift heavy loads on squats, leg press, etc. It also provides joint warmth. Don't wrap your knees with knee wraps too tightly it might block your blood flow. Keep the tightness from 7-8/10. For knee sleeves, go for neoprene material 7mm-10mm. 3) Weight Training Belt: A belt can be a useful piece for supportive strength equipment in your training, but it shouldn't be relied on. © Getty Images It's always a better idea to build a solid foundation of muscle and strong lifting mechanics before reaching for & possibly overusing a belt. Weight lifting belt keeps your lower back safe. It supports the torso during big lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench press, overhead press, etc. It also provides you with confidence when loading weights on the bar. 4) Lifting Straps: Wrist straps can be beneficial when performing any pulling movements or holding any heavy load. It prevents you from grip failure. Grip failure is one of the main reason where you shift back from lifting a heavy load. You can use lifting straps on any back movements, deadlifts and shrugs. How to put the straps? Setting on your wrist straps and attaching them to the bar can be critical. Wrapping technique will change based on the length of the strap and where the loop is stitched. Everyone has their favourite method, but here's mine: I find it comfortable to wrap one hand exactly where I want it, then wrap the other hand closer to the already-wrapped hand (so I can use it for help with the wrapping method), then push the second hand into position. 5) Training Logbook: A training log book can be helpful to note down how much work you put every session. You can track your sets, reps, load, etc. Training without a plan not knowing how much weight to lift, the number of reps you should be doing and what you're trying to improve is like taking a road trip without a map. Your main goal is to improve on what you did in your last training session, that's called progression. Any workout without progression means you're not developing, which means you didn't have a productive workout.

  3. Just when I thought Facebook was done screwing up its user's privacy, a new report just popped up saying that Facebook's employees had access to hundreds of millions of user passwords. Good job, Facebook! Yesterday, when an independent security journalist named Brian Krebs reported about this mistake, Facebook issued a press release to confirm the same and said it discovered the mishap during a “routine security review in January.” Here's the best part - The press release was titled “Keeping Passwords Secure”. LOL! © Reuters Krebs' report noted that anywhere between 200 to 600 million people are affected due to this mistake, which shouldn't have happened in the first place. In fact, it looks like some passwords were found in archives dating back to 2012. The social media site estimates that hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users. Looks like the issue has been fixed and it will notify everyone affected. © Pexels According to Facebook, there's no evidence that plain text passwords were exposed outside of the company, neither were they abused internally. So, it says even the affected users don't necessarily need to change their passwords, but I'd still change it if I were you. I am sure you know that this isn't the first security breach that Facebook and its users are dealing with. All we've been hearing about is Facebook and it's privacy issues. It all started with the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and it's just been a string of bad security issues. People even started dumping Facebook, which I once wondered was the right thing to do. But now, I have some serious trust issues and I wonder if it's time to dump the platform for real.
  4. “Streaming is going to change the future of gaming, and it'll kill the consoles” - I am sure you've heard a lot of phrases like this during the past few months. Honestly, I didn't give into the whole game-streaming hype until last night, when Google unveiled Stadia, its ambitious gaming platform. As much as I like my consoles, I really think Stadia has the potential to pose a serious threat to them. In case you haven't seen it till now, Stadia's website boldly claims that “the future of gaming is not a box.” In all fairness, I think Google's presentation last night at GDC was convincing enough to support this claim. I say that because the idea of streaming a game online makes a lot of sense to me. Instead of throwing in all your money to buy dedicated gaming hardware, you can simply sign up for Stadia and play it on the device of your choice. © YouTube This means you could literally be playing Red Dead Redemption 2 (great game), on your TV, or heck, even a smartphone. So in this case, the TV or the smartphone and a controller is all you need to play such a demanding title. No downloads, no installations, and no “box”, as Google likes to call it. Google's data centre would do all the heavy work, and the internet will take care of the rest for you. All that sounds impressive, but how much will Stadia cost? Well, Google didn't have a lot to say about the pricing, but I am sure the service is not going to be free. In fact, I think it's going to be more expensive than any kind of streaming service that you use currently. I mean, c'mon, we're talking about a service that's going to help you play even the most demanding titles without the expensive hardware. That being said, I still think it'll be less expensive than, say, a gaming console from the likes of Sony and Microsoft. Look, I don't know how the upcoming PS5 or the rumoured Xbox Two is going to cost. But considering the fact the current-gen consoles were around $400 - $500 at launch, I am assuming the next ones will be pricier. And that's just for the console, and there are a lot of expenses like the PSN subscription, Xbox Game pass, and more. © Google So if Google Stadia is priced right, which I think it will, we are looking at a serious competition here. And then there's the whole ecosystem to consider as well. Imagine a situation where you're, say, watching a streamer on YouTube gaming or Twitch. With Stadia, you'd literally be able to tap a button and start playing that exact game without having to do much work. It's exactly the kind of seamless experience that I've always wanted. Also, there's seamless accessibility, Google Assistant integration, co-op gameplay, Stadia's State Play features, etc. Look, I can keep going with all these features and make some educated guesses here. But being able to experience all the games on a smartphone or a tablet from the comfort of my couch is convincing enough for me. Of course, all of this is going to take time, but streaming, particularly, Google's streaming service, has the potential to upend gaming consoles. If not, I can at least say that it has the potential to become one of the preferred ways of playing games for a lot of people.
  5. In a world full of people who don't want to get settled, it becomes hard if you are looking for something stable. You get called prude, old-fashioned, and too patient. All you get from the left and right swipes is a date who wouldn't want to know you the morning after. That is how our generation has become. It is all about getting naked, and nothing about companionship or compatibility. And the ones who want to know you, they usually want to know about your wild fantasies. That's why dating these days feels like a sprint whereas it should be a marathon. If you too feel like you don't belong in this world, you need to change a little. Following are a few things you can do to casually look for something serious: · Don't Push For Commitment Right From The Start You can't get a commitment on the very first day. Understand that building a relationship takes time. It is something which happens with the flow. Don't scare off your date by talking about the commitment the first time you meet. Let him/her know that you're looking for something serious but you understand that it doesn't happen in a day or two. So you're ready to go with the flow. · Ask Questions Get to know your date as much as you can. Ask questions about their goals, their dream, their lifestyle. It will reveal the kind of person they are. Then you can judge better is they seem worth your time. More importantly, their answers will reveal if they're a casual person or they know how to be serious too. For instance, if a person's hobby is drinking and bar hopping, you may expect that they like a certain pace and might not be ready for stability. On the other hand, if you find someone who is discussing his life goals, that would be the person who is serious in life and might be looking for the same. · Hold Back & Be Mysterious Don't open your entire life on the first date. Hint about the crazy things you did but don't reveal it to them. The idea here is to get them hooked to you. If they are, then even if they're looking for something casual, they might think of sticking for a longer period. No matter how hook-up cultured your date is, if you show that you're independent, smart, fun, and there's some mystery, then thought of having something stable with you would cross their mind. And all is well that ends well. These were some of the things you can do to find something stable in this on-the-move world. As they say, if you want to change the world, change yourself first.
  6. Every once in a while, we see the union of some of the most influential people of their respective fields. Power couples like Beyonce and Jay Z, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, Barack and Michelle Obama are obviously atop the list. But what about those couples that are exclusive to sports? 1. Dinesh Karthik & Dipika Pallikal View this post on Instagram Missing my lady @dipikapallikal A post shared by Dinesh Karthik (@dk00019) on Jul 28, 2018 at 7:10am PDT One of the most successful wicketkeepers for the Indian cricket team, Dinesh Karthik is well on his way to getting selected for India's 2019 World Cup roster. Barring the last T20I match against New Zealand, Karthik is one of the more dependable batsmen for India. His wife, Dipika Pallikal is the most successful squash player in the country to play professionally. With her highest world rankings at 10 (2012), Pallikal even won the gold in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. 2. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon View this post on Instagram âªThat moment when going out for groceries turns into an upcoming episode of @CarpoolKaraoke with @StephanieMcMahon. Btw, I sound much better when I lip sync… A post shared by Paul "Triple H" Levesque (@tripleh) on May 31, 2018 at 1:14pm PDT Spearheading the most famous wrestling show in the world, this power couple may be the strongest married duo (and we mean that literally) of all time. While wrestler Triple H is one of the best in-ring performers of the business, the involvement of his wife Stephanie McMahon, in some of the most epic storylines during WWE's 'Attitude Era' was absolutely entertaining and worth watching time and time again. 3. Saina Nehwal & Parupalli Kashyap View this post on Instagram Photo shoot ð¸ð¸... #magazine ðð¸ A post shared by SAINA NEHWAL (@nehwalsaina) on Feb 7, 2019 at 8:01am PST The newest power couple on the block, shuttlers Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap have found new form ever since they tied the knot last year. Much senior in experience when it comes to competitive badminton, Saina Nehwal can often be seen coaching Kashyap during games. However, she has also publicly announced that her husband has brought in a lot of changes in her game that have led to some great advancements in her performance. 4. Mitchell Starc & Alyssa Healy View this post on Instagram Picture 1. Mitch and I trying to do our best model poses while my feet were still fresh in my heels..... ð- Picture 2. Dreams do come true.....Thanks everybody! A post shared by Alyssa Healy (@a_healy) on Feb 11, 2019 at 11:00pm PST Australian cricketer, Mitchell Starc is probably the scariest pacers Down Under. Winning the 2017 Allan Border Medal in the best Test bowler category for his performance against Sri Lanka in 2016, Starc is also a decent batsman who is only 14th Aussie to take 100+ wickets and score 1000+ runs in Test cricket. His wife and also an Aussie cricketer, Alyssa Healy on the other hand, just capped a brilliant year as she won the prestigious Belinda Clark Award while also being named ODI and T20 player of the year during the Australia's Women's Awards.
  7. If you're completely relying on a particular ecosystem of products, you'd expect them to have easy connectivity options, at least among each other. While Apple has among the best in-sync mechanisms on the software end using iCloud and AirDrop, the company has some serious issues with hardware. Anand Mahindra, CEO of Mahindra Group, bought himself an iPad Pro and realised a normal iPhone lightning connector no longer works with it. To charge the new tablet, a USB-C connection has been provided and you need to carry a separate connector for the device. This fact annoyed the Indian billionaire and he expressed his disappointment on Twitter. © BCCL In a tweet, Mahindra said that he will have to buy a new charger as well as earphone which will add to the list of accessories he needs to carry while travelling. The business tycoon added that this is why most people are sticking to the existing model of their device. When Apple released the lightning connector in 2012, it was supposed to be the de facto option for devices like mobiles and tablets. Don't get us wrong, USB-C is equally advanced and in many cases even better thanks to compatibility with non-Apple devices. But, Apple has been pushing the new port very selectively, coercing users to carry two cables at a given point, one for the iPhone and one for the iPad. Got a new iPad & found that the lightning connector's been https://t.co/UmJpsLysGo need a new charger which doesn't work with my iPhone&new earphones too.More junk when I travel. Great strategy to boost accessory sales, but not surprised more folks are sticking to existing models — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 18, 2019 If Apple is serious about pushing USB-C in all its devices, it should also upgrade the port on iPhone's. Over the years, Apple has been as frustrating as it is innovative, especially when it comes to changing chargers on its devices. Apple also removed the MagSafe port from the Mac line-up and added a USB-C instead. This led to even more problems for the end user since the laptop completely eliminated USB-A, forcing users to depend on multiple dongles for SD cards, HDMI, and more. © iMore Buying a new cable for an Apple device is also significantly expensive, leaving users with no option but to spend or perish. He also expressed unhappiness over the matter that the accessories like earphone for iPhone is also not compatible with iPad Pro. When Apple removed the headphone jack from iPhones, it provided small lightning to 3.5mm dongle in the box. With the latest iPhones, even the dongle isn't available out of the box. © The Verge The point is, Apple is a premium brand should stop ignoring basic user requirements. While these actions are getting them some more cash in the short term, pissing off buyers is never a good idea in the longer run.
  8. I have been meaning to put this down in words for a while but for some reason, I stopped. I thought it's just a couple of people and not a growing chunk of 'gym enthusiasts' who are getting into their workouts for fun. But that's exactly what's happening and here I am scribbling it up. Yup, that 'fun while working out' thing that people and trainers keep talking about is probably keeping you from getting into the best shape of your life. How? Let me chop it up for you. What 'Having Fun With Your Workouts' Mean And What It Has Really Become If you like exercising and tie your daily activities around your gym time, plan your meals and prioritize your sleep, you are 'actually' having fun. That's when you are actually motivated and treading the right path to see results. You hold on to a routine, see changes and dig deeper with a smile on your face. Entering the gym and cracking small talk with clueless people, doing stupid functional exercises and making stupider videos isn't what having fun with your workouts mean. Sorry, to burst your bubble, it doesn't! © Pixabay What Do You Really Get Into The Gym For? If you are a 9-5 deskie, how much time can you possibly dedicate to your workout sessions? Not over an hour and a half, or even less. In that time do you really want to get into a workout to have fun? If your answer is yes, then you are certainly not chasing results. You are probably in there to just change your monotonous routine. People who chase a good looking body don't have time to break into a chat or hug five different people at the gym. They get in to get the work done. Do You Have 'Some Fun At Work' When You Are Trying To Be The Best? Come on, let's not sugar coat things here. No matter how cool your work place is but every task demands a certain level of seriousness. That's how success is achieved. You want to lose weight, look better, build some muscle, get beach ready, right? Then why do want to waste your time having 'fun' and not be focused in the gym? © Pixabay I'm Not Asking You To Become An 'Asocial Or Anti-Fun' Person. I'm Just Asking You To Set Your Priorities Right With Workouts I can bet that half way into this article, a lot of joggers and aqua zumba regulars will start fretting. Not minding them, I'll still ask you to get serious about your gym time. That one hour, if utilized right, can have an impeccable impact on your social, professional and personal life. If you are giving your all while working out, you are having fun.
  9. For a man who lurked in the shadows of prominent stars for the better part of his playing career, Aakash Chopra still had a fairly decent run in the domestic circuit. Playing for Delhi, he scored 783 runs in the 2007-08 season to guide his team to the Ranji Trophy title. The same season saw him scoring 310 runs and playing a pivotal role in North Zone's title-winning campaign in the Duleep Trophy. Post-retirement, Chopra began his second innings in cricket and quickly became one of the most highly sought after commentators and analysts of the game. Thanks to his know-how of the game, the 40-year-old has struck a chord with Indian fans, who have been ardent followers of the former Delhi cricketer on social media. © BCCL He is one of those rare individuals, who has the capability of influencing the minds of fans and drawing a reaction, something that many can only dream of. A similar incident came to the fore recently, when Chopra shared a photograph of what looked like a restaurant bill on social media. Paid nearly 7 Lac for a meal ðð¤£ðð Welcome to Indonesia ð®ð©ð pic.twitter.com/LYySPXPN3c — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) July 15, 2018 While the food items - which mainly included Indian vegetarian dishes - appeared in order, it was the total amount of the bill that left everyone scratching their heads. The former Indian cricketer apparently paid close to 7 lakh for what looked like an ordinary meal in Indonesia. "Paid nearly 7 Lac for a meal. Welcome to Indonesia," he tweeted. Known for his wit and humour, Chopra was trying to poke fun at his fans by claiming that he paid 7 lakh for a meal. But, in reality, he paid 7 lakh Indonesian rupiah, which translates to around Rs 3,300. While some fans came up with witty replies, others trolled the Indian commentator for his post. Translates to approx. 3500 in Indian rupees :) — Navneet Mundhra (@navneet_mundhra) July 15, 2018 How cheap is this even not a engineer get 7 lakh per annum — Suraj Mishra (@SurajMi51087850) July 15, 2018 Akash bhai sorry to say....but this post not suitable to u bcz u r always been a good analyst...
