  1. When Sunny Deol's pictures with BJP Chief Amit Shah splashed all over the internet a few days ago, everyone made the obvious assumption of the legendary actor joining the BJP. Well, today he has actually joined the ruling party and has been inducted as a member, following the steps of Hema Malini and his father Dharmendra, who are already members of the BJP. Sunny 'paaji' joining the party has ended up being the only thing catching everyone's fancy on the social media today. Next time an F16 heads towards the Indian border... #SunnyDeol pic.twitter.com/fCDZHhDIOk — Raj Shekhar Jha (@rajshekharTOI) April 23, 2019 His fans are actually believing that Tara Singh from 'Gadar' is a real hero now.

  2. Virat Kohli is a name that doesn't really need an introduction, as he is the most popular cricketer that India has seen since the legend Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli is someone who is always seen leading the Indian team from the front, be it with the bat or on the field. But what really sets him apart is not just his cricketing skills, but his fitness too. © Reuters When it comes to fitness, the Indian captain just keeps on raising the bar and has become the fitness icon of India when it comes to sportsmen, as no other Indian athlete can match his fitness levels at present. In fact, I am also sure that his chiselled and amazing body is something that a lot of people are striving to get for themselves. In this article, I am going about how you can build a sportsman-like physique just like Virat Kohli: 1. Dietary Control In a recent interview, Virat himself said that he hasn't tasted 'butter naan' and 'butter chicken' in the last 5 years which used to be his favourite dish. This not only shows his immense discipline towards his diet but also tells you that he stays away from any kind of junk foods at all. You can't expect your body to look and respond like a sportsman if you're going to feed it junk food every now and then. Your diet should be as nutritious as possible. Avoid eating highly processed and less nutritious food all the time. 2. Increase Your Protein Intake The combination of the chiselled physique with explosive energy is impossible to achieve without a good amount of protein in your diet. Your body needs to have muscles to look muscular. Protein is the building block for muscles, thus it is very important that you include enough protein in your diet on a daily basis. Having 1.5 grams protein per Kg of body weight is a good place to start with and thereafter you can increase it according to your own individual needs. 3. Combination Of Resistance And Agility Training If you look at Virat's physique carefully, you will realize that he doesn't have too much of muscle mass. He is not bulky like a bodybuilder but yes, he has muscles. © Reuters To build muscles, you need to train with weights. When your muscles are subjected to resistance training regularly, your body tries to build new muscle fibres. Also, sport-specific performance like Kohli's will need regular agility training as well. You could choose from various forms of agility drills like ladder drills, cone drills or medicine balls. Working out at least 5 to 6 days in a week with a combination of resistance training and agility training will be best suited for a body like Virat's. 4. Consistency Virat didn't become Virat overnight. It took him years and years of hard work, dedication and discipline to become what he is today. You have to keep this in mind when you make a target to be like him. There will be temptation around you for skipping your workouts or to cheat on your meals, but you have you show your commitment towards your goals. This is what differentiates an achiever from a loser. Just do the hard work, be patient and you will see the results coming your way.

  3. The latest episode of 'Game of Thrones'' was a mixed bag of predictable yet gorgeously shot scenes, and the prepping up for the battle towards the end of the episode kind of takes you on a journey filled with mixed emotions. Now, social media is a funny Pandora's Box of jokes and memes and these hilarious ones on today's episode, sum up how we feel. #GameofThrones Jaime when Bran said “the things we do for love” pic.twitter.com/TIxEp5A8Ds — Annalisa Nicole (@annalisa_nicole) April 22, 2019 My thoughts on tonight's Game of Thrones: - Good episode but next week is going to be CRAZY. - Arya a freak!

  4. Due to the popularization of the fitness industry, thousands of fitness coaches are available right now and their demand is on the peak. Right from the 'not to be taken seriously' ones who teach you hacks to lose face fat and belly fat in 7 days to those who speak actual facts and back their practice with the latest evidence, you will find every type of trainer out there. © Unsplash The problem is that a lot of people fall easily for the quick hacks and sorcery-promising ones and do not really pay attention to the latter. That is unless they screw their happiness and waste their money on the quick fix ones and then go to the evidence-based practitioners. If you are looking to work with a professional for your fitness goals, here are a few qualities they should have: 1. Professionalism © Unsplash Like I mentioned, if you are looking to work with a professional, that is what they have to be. A professional. That means they should clearly communicate with the client what can be expected in the coaching, their timelines, what do they expect from the client, their coaching style, their communication channels and turnaround times. Along with that, what results the client can expect from the program and what are the things they would be required to do. 2. Ethical A coach who is trying to sell you a particular supplement or a fishy product under their sponsorship agenda or asks you to take certain drugs saying that you absolutely need it to get good results, are NOT the best lot to help you out. A coach should only 'suggest' supplements as it is not their role to make recommendations or ask you to buy things. They should suggest stating the benefits only and keep the decision-making power totally in your hands. Drugs, should not even come up in a conversation with your trainer. 3. Should Walk The Talk If your coach is obese, does not train regularly, does not eat well, seems like they themselves need a coach and are not the best person to be a coach to someone. By walk the talk, it does not mean they should be ripped and flash abs year round but should be what is considered fit and have a supporting lifestyle. If they don't, you will never be inspired to go an extra mile forward for them to get better or take them seriously in the first place. 4. Creates Plans Individualized For You © Unsplash If someone takes your money under the premise of coaching and ends up sending you some template files or cookie cutter programs, they are selling you templates and not coaching. Coaching, on the other hand, means that the coach in question takes information from you regarding your goals, your lifestyle, your current nutrition, training, sleep habits and then creates a plan suited for your lifestyle and goals. It is YOUR plan. Not the one that is a one-size-fits-all plan. 5. Transparency & Education A coach should not just tell you what to do and ask you to follow him blindly. A coach should be able to give you a satisfactory explanation as to 'why' a particular thing or a plan has been set for you and how it would benefit you. Along with that, the coach should equip you with the necessary information and education so that you can be independent after a few months to take charge of your own fitness. © Unsplash Yes, there still might be situations where you would still be with them. Be it a contest prep or a powerlifting meet or a sports event. But those are special instances or situations where someone keeping an eye on your progress and planning does help. But, if just staying in shape means you being with a coach and taking his coaching for a lifetime, that coach is making you a handicap and not helping you out in reality.

  5. Despite the changing landscape of torrents, it's not really all that difficult to access torrent websites. One can easily access any of these sites by following a couple of simple steps. However, it's worth pointing out that not all of your old favourite sites are still working. Don't worry, though. We scavenged the internet to find out the best torrent sites you can access today to download whatever it is that you want--be it movies, TV Shows, software, and more. So let's check them out. The Pirate Bay © MensXP “Once a classic, always a classic”. Yes, that's exactly what The Pirate Bay is all about. This particular website has been in existence for as long as torrents have existed, and it's still one of the most popular and reliable sites around. The Pirate Bay has a huge selection of torrents ranging from movies, tv shows, apps, and more. It also has a fairly simple user interface, which hasn't really changed in years. Notably, the Pirate Bay also has the most popular torrent tracker in the world, which by itself a huge reason behind the success of this site. Visit The Pirate Bay RARBG © MensXP This one's for movie enthusiasts out there who are on the lookout for all the latest movies. It also has other content like TV shows, but RARBG is one site which you can always rely on for movies. Much like the other torrent sites, RARBG comes with a simple and easy-to-use interface with relevant info on the main page. The download page for each file also comes with all the useful bit of information like the number of seeders, leechers, etc., making it easier to find the right info and do exactly what you need. RARBG is constantly updated with new additions, and is known to be quite a popular destination for people wanting to download the new episodes of Game of Thrones. Visit RARBG 1337X © MensXP 1377X is yet another torrent site that's been around for a long time. But it wasn't until the demise of KAT and ExtraTorrent that this website gained some spotlight. The content on 1337X gets updated frequently, and all the info is displayed on a clean-looking interface. That's part of the reason why 1337X gained a lot of traction over the years. It's also one of the very few sites with obscure torrents, so there are more chances of finding the torrents that you're after without the hassle of going through a lot of searching. 1337X is an excellent choice for downloading content like movies, TV shows, games, etc. Also, the additional helpful browsing features like Oscar nominations, new episodes, and more are just an added advantage. Visit 1337X. YTS © MensXP YTS is one site that focuses exclusively on movies. It's also one of the cleanest-looking torrent site that you'll find on the internet. Seriously, it's almost comparable to the streaming sites out there. It looks that good. Besides the advantage of its visual appearance, one of the biggest advantages of using YTS is that it goes easy on the bandwidth. The movies are offered in the smallest size possible, which means it's perfect for users in countries like, say, India, where bandwidth is often a pain point. Visit YTS NYAA © MensXP NYAA.si is your one-stop destination for anime. It's essentially a resurrection of the popular anime site NYSAA, and it has a very similar interface. The site lists out all the available anime episodes that are available to download right in the homepage, along with some other useful information like the number of seeders and leechers. Visit NYAA
  6. The very popular, albeit annoying to the level of self-destruction, Chinese video making application TikTok has been finally taken down from Google and Apple app stores in India. The (awesome) news comes after the Madras High Court prohibited its downloads on 3rd April. Now, following the direction of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the app has been temporarily banned in the country. © Twitter The popular app which was actively used by millions of Indians to create short videos was said to contain “inappropriate content”, in a petition filed by senior advocate S Muthukumar. He further stated that children using the app were vulnerable to potential paedophiles using the application, and sought an immediate ban on the use of TikTok. © Justdial While there is strong merit in those allegations, we must recall that Indonesia also temporarily blocked TikTok last year, saying that it contained pornography and blasphemous content. Perhaps it is really time for TikTok to take a step back and think about regulating its content and privacy/security details. View this post on Instagram Comments how that vedio you like or not ???

So, true to that data, imagine the insane amount of video “content” that is being churned out on the platform on a daily basis. While some can be genuinely fun to look at (only once in a while), most other videos are pure torture to the beholder. While this news must be heart-breaking for Indian TikTok 'stars', the following cringey videos are all the proof we need that the ban is in all of our best interest. What did we just see?! Ravi Chopra must be tossing in his grave right now. Epic level.#Rrspect #SwagWalaArjuna pic.twitter.com/8mAPEUy6FT — A La' Vile De Satara (@AdvancedMaushi) November 3, 2018 P.A.I.N Nahi kahan jayega?

  7. Racing games are one of the most popular forms of time-pass when you want to keep yourself entertained. This is especially true when you game on your smartphone. There's a plethora of racing games on the App Store and Play Store which makes it confusing for people to know which one is the best. Some games are casual enough to keep you busy for a while, and some premium driving experiences that are very close to console level graphics. Here are five of our favourite racing games for your smartphones. 1. Absolute Drift If you love drifting and want to play a game specifically designed for that experience, look no further than Absolute Drift. The game requires you to practise a bit if you need to get the perfect drift around those corners. If you happen to own a compatible controller, the experience is even better and rewarding. The game is available on both iOS and Android so you can play this game on the platform of your choice. 2. Asphalt 9: Legends This is a free-to-play game that's available on both iOS and Android digital stores and has microtransactions inbuilt. The game provides a more realistic approach to the game when compared to previous installations. Gameplay is exciting and full of energy, a combination you always expect from an arcade racing game. 3. Rush Rally 3 If you're a fan of rally racing, we would suggest downloading 'Rush Rally 3' as it is your best option for smartphones right now. Available on both iOS and Google Play, the game is quite challenging and is full rally racing simulator. Even though the game has touch controls, we suggest you use a Bluetooth controller to play this game for the best experience. 4. Red Bull Air Race 2: The Mobile Game 'Red Bull Air Race 2' is probably the only game you want to download if you love air-racing. The game recreates raced Red Bull hosts around the globe and you get to control you own very plane. Eat course is a real-life recreation of the actual tournament. 5. GRID Autosport This game is actual proof that console-level racing games can be ported to smartphones and deliver almost the same experience. The original game first came to consoles and PC and is now available for smartphones. This is proof that AAA racing games can be handled easily by top-tier smartphones.
  8. The entire country is wrapped up in the hubbub around the 2019 General Elections in India, with the first timers thrumming with excitement to cast their first vote and become a part of history books for the future Indian Prime Minister's election. Yet, the masses are still busy focusing their attention to the biggest influencers they look up to on a regular basis in order to decide whether stepping out and voting would really make much of a difference as is being let on. © Twitter We are talking about the majority of Indian population's reliance on Bollywood stars for inspiration and motivation to get things done in life. However, as you might have already guessed from the headline of this story, there are a few beloved Bollywood stars who will not play their part in the General Elections this year since they are not eligible to vote, and here's why. Akshay Kumar © Instagram Akshay Kumar was born in Amritsar and regardless of all his overt show of patriotism, he will not be casting his vote because he holds a Canadian passport. Alia Bhatt © Instagram One of India's current favourites, Alia too shall not be casting her vote this election because Alia holds a British passport. You may recall that Alia's mother, Soni Razdan is also a British citizen. Deepika Padukone © Instagram Versatile actor Deepika too cannot vote in India. Having been born in Copenhagen, in Denmark, she holds a Danish passport and is therefore not eligible to vote in India. Katrina Kaif © Instagram Another Bollywood favourite, Katrina may be loved by thousands of Indians, but she is still an English citizen and has a UK passport. Imran Khan © Instagram Regardless of his short Bollywood stint, Aamir's nephew Imran is very much an active part of Bollywood. Since he holds an American passport, Imran cannot vote in the elections held in India. Jacqueline Fernandez © Instagram The 'Race 3' actress isn't Indian. She was born in Bahrain, and while her father is Sri Lankan, her mother is of Malaysian descent. Sunny Leone © Instagram Born Karenjit Kaur, with her roots in India, the actress can still not vote in India because she holds a Canadian passport.
  9. Siddhant Chaturvedi was introduced to us as MC Sher in 'Gully Boy' this year. After a power-packed performance in 'Gully Boy', Chaturvedi is the next big thing that has happened to Bollywood. Not only did MC Sher charm us with his performance and made us believe in the genuinely talented guy who was more than willing to help Murad through his journey of becoming a rapper, but we also loved his sense of style and the way he strutted like a boss in the song 'Sher Aaya Sher'. And it's fascinating to watch a first-timer in mainstream movies garner so much attention with just one film. Siddhant Chaturvedi has recently started getting a lot of projects including that of advertisement series with Tata Harrier. At the 12th IPL, Tata Motors announced a 'Mini-Series' a unique TV campaign themed 'Love At First Drive'. This features Siddhant Chaturvedi and Fatima Sana Sheikh. Here are four parts of the series that are already out. Take a look: and then there are more pictures, here's a peek: © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi © Instagram/ Siddhant Chaturvedi We can't wait to see more parts of this series because we clearly can't get enough of Siddhant.
  10. In the previous article, I shared some uncomfortable truths one should know before they decide to get on a journey to get shredded to the bone. As there are too many pointers on the same, I decided to break this series down into two parts. Let's continue: 6. You Will Have To Skip Your Favorite Foods © Getty Images That extra bite of food, that piece of cake when a co-worker is celebrating their birthday, that lazy office Friday afternoon when everyone decides to order pizza, you will have to give it a skip. Yes, that will become all the more non-negotiable as you get leaner and leaner. Two main reasons for that are because these foods are high in energy density and rich in calories. Another one is that you will not be able to stop at a small serving size. 7. Hunger Will Be A Constant As you diet further and further, your leptin aka the satiety hormone goes for a toss. Meaning, you won't feel full on eating food very easily. To add to this misery, ghrelin aka the hunger hormone will shoot up keeping the feeling of void and hunger a constant. Your food will not fill you up and your body will signal that you are hunger. Like I told in the previous part, this is because your body wants you to survive for longer and hence storing body fat is a priority. 8. Your Sleep Cycles Will Get Disturbed © Getty Images As you are constantly hungry, irritable, low on energy; your sleep cycles are likely to get affected by this as well. Disturbed sleeping pattern and hours of constant sleep being reduced as the weeks go on are a common occurrence even for athletes doing a contest prep under the best of the coaches in the world. 9. Your Training Will Suffer As your energy levels and sleep cycles go for a toss, the immediate next thing to be affected by these is your training. You will observe that you need to rest longer between sets to recover, you would not be motivated to train, your energy levels in the gym will take a deep dive, and you would drop poundage on the bar as well. All these will happen which will add a tiny bit to the increasing frustration. 10. Stress © Getty Images The nine pointers that I have mentioned in this series all have one thing in common, they all add stress. Your stress levels will shoot up during the diet. And it may have some negative effects on your social, physical, as well as mental health. Your behaviour may take a turn for the worse and you may be moody and highly irritable during this phase. You may end up pissing others around you as for them, your abs are not really that important, to begin with. Now, the point of this series is not to discourage you from getting leaner and getting to single digits of body fat. Flashing abs is abso-fucking-lutely awesome! All I am trying to do is to make you aware of the negatives that come along with it and it'll help you decide that when is the right time in your schedule to diet to get to such leaner levels when you will be as irritable and as moody as a hormonal teenager.

  11. If you love to run on the streets or on the road and can do that only in the evenings due to our shitty weather or hectic work schedules, there's a sneaker especially for you. Often when running in the night, you're concerned about safety or enough lighting to get noticed by oncoming traffic. The answer to these concerns came to us way back in the 1980s and Adidas is bringing back the retro-styled sneaker to India. © Adidas The sneakers are ideal for runners who prefer a soft mesh knot and a lightweight ripstop that is essential in a running sneaker. These sneakers are specifically designed for night running as it has a hi0vis reflective body much you get to see on safety jackets on construction workers. It automatically catches the light from oncoming traffic's headlights or streetlights keeping the runner safe from accidents. You can find this reflective detailing on the laces, stripes, and other key strategic points. When it comes to the kicks, it's a hybrid of modern sneaker design with 80s aesthetics that make the sneakers perfect for running.

  12. Remember the good old days when you used to make excuses just to avoid exams? Yes, they never used to work for the most part, but do you know what kids are ready to do these days to skip an exam? Take down the entire freaking wi-fi network. That's right, two 14-year-old high school students of Secuacus High School in New Jersey, USA, decided to go all in and bring down the entire Wi-Fi network of their school so students could not access the online curriculum. If only they had put so much effort into studying for the exam! © Unsplash After talking to other students at the school, the authorities found out that the duo was using a program or app to attack the school's network and cause it to crash or become too congested to be used by the others. NJ.com's report says, “Students interviewed Monday afternoon believe the boys used a Wi-Fi interrupter program, or an app, to send so much traffic to the routers that the system would crash, which ultimately caused connection failures when students tried to log on, do class work or take exams on their computers.” It has also been brought to notice that the duo was taking requests from friends to bring down the Wi-Fi. However, it is not entirely clear if they did it as a favor or they did it with intentions of making money. The Secaucus Police Department said both students were charged with computer criminal activity and conspiracy to commit computer criminal activity.

  14. Bodybuilders are worshipped by every gym-going bro who wants to develop a good physique. They would go to any extent to follow the advice and suggestions given by these pro-bodybuilders. People take them as their guru and a source of magic to help them achieve the same conditioning and more often than not, their advice is really non-sensical without any basis. The following pointers hold true for 90 per cent of pro-bodybuilders: 1) They do not have ample knowledge on exercise or nutrition science. 2) They have built their physiques using anabolic steroids. 3) They do not even perform some exercises with the right form. Here are the top 5 pieces of advice they tend to give you, which you should watch out for: 1) Eat Clean Foods Like Rice, Chicken, Etc To Get Shredded: Calories come from all foods and beverages. You can include some junk foods with your nutritious ones. Your body needs micronutrients and vitamins. You don't have to eat rice, chicken and broccoli for all your meals. Keep some varieties so that you don't get bored. 2) Close-Grip Bench Works Your Inner Chest: No exercise can work your "inner chest.” To improve the development of your inner chest, it is simply important to fully shorten your pec muscles and do a full range of motion. Much like a biceps curl “for peak” forces your muscle to be fully shortened and thereby grow upward, the same idea goes for inner chest. 3) Fasted Cardio Burns More Fat Than Fed-State Cardio: Nope! Never been proven. In fact, in scientific literature, it has been shown that cardio (or any exercise) is done after consuming calories has a greater thermogenic effect that is, more calories are burned. Simply don't force yourself into fasted cardio if you do not enjoy it. 4) Stretch Your Muscles And Hold Them For 20 Seconds. The FST-7 Concept: Your fascia does not stretch! It's a proven fact that fascia has the tensile force of steel. It may expand, much like muscle does when it gets warm, and become more flexible, but as soon as it cools, it's right back to where it started. Fascia grows in much the same way muscle does. You may break fascial adhesions, which gives the concept of expansion or greater range this is a great thing! but sadly, it's not stretching to allow for muscle growth. Increase your volume to grow your muscle via adding sets or load or reps, and the fascia will see a need to adapt and expand. 5) Eat Tilapia To Thin Your Skin: This is a big claim coming from bodybuilders. Any food item has no relation to your skin. To get paper thin skin, you need to lose body fat. You have to drop down your fat below 8 per cent and but staying below 8 per cent for a long time can drop down your performance and *** drive.

  17. If you want to build a well-rounded wardrobe, you have to start with the basics. When it comes to the world of menswear, nothing is more basic (dare we say, essential?) than having an array of quality undergarments to choose from. For a lot of guys, underwear shopping simply means picking up a pack of boxers or briefs from the local store, because, well, that's what they've been doing their whole lives. In fact, boxers or briefs is an age old question that has caused many a spirited debate without, till date, resulting in an answer that both sides can agree on. Well, we actually have an answer to that raging debate - why not both? Enter The World Of Boxer Briefs Yes, that's right - there's actually an underwear style that is the perfect amalgamation of the comfort of boxers and the safety of briefs, and it's the boxer brief. They combine the positive attributes from both underwear styles to give the wearer the best of both worlds. They're the same length as your boxer shorts, which means they offer the same coverage. At the same time, they retain the snug fit of the brief, which means better support for your privates. In addition, the close fit makes them much easier to slot comfortably under your trousers or your jeans without them bunching up annoyingly, unlike the billowing boxers. We're not suggesting that you toss out everything in your underwear drawer and start afresh with only boxer briefs. Every underwear style comes with its own positives, which merit a place in your fashion forward wardrobe. You might want to hang on to your form-fitting briefs to wear during your workouts, and your loose and airy boxers to sport on relaxed days off spent lounging around at home. However, when it comes to everyday comfort and style, you just can't beat what boxer briefs have to offer. With that in mind, check out our list of the best boxer briefs for men to see what you've been missing out on. These Are The Best Boxer Briefs For Men To Wear Everyday 1.

  18. The one single thing that keeps bros outside the gym and missing out on the muscle gains, is injuries. An injury can backtrack your progress by months, at the very least, when it hits you. Many people think that injuries are a result of just poor form or heavyweights. And they could not be more wrong. Injuries are equally caused by poor exercise selection and by choosing the wrong exercises, you can get injured by just lifting light weights too. Here are the three most common 'poor' exercises people pick for shoulders and smart ways you can fix them by making some adjustments: 1. Upright Rows When doing the upright row, you will often see that the elbows go above the shoulder. This position leads to an internal rotation that makes your rotator cuff muscles rub with the shoulder blades. This error can lead to shoulder impingement or inflammation. The Fix: You can still do the upright rows by widening your grip to around twice that of your shoulder width. Along with that, ensure that you are not swinging your arms and your elbows are not going above your shoulder height at the top. These modifications will activate the target muscles more prominently while keeping you in a safer position. 2. Behind The Neck Shoulder Presses I had covered this exercise in my article on a similar topic. You can read it here. A research done in 2015 has shown that for doing behind-the-neck shoulder presses, you need good flexibility in the external rotation of your shoulder. Most men do not possess that flexibility. By doing this movement, you are simply straining the neck and the shoulder muscles while risking an injury. The Fix: The plain old shoulder presses or the military press. It is much safer and you could lift a heavier load on it. 3. Front Raises This is one of the most popular exercises done by a lot of people to target the front delts. There is no issue doing this exercise or any significant injury risk by itself, but there is a good chance that this exercise is pretty unnecessary for most people and leads to other issues for most people. The issue is that of muscular imbalances. Your front delts are targeted pretty well when you do pressing movements or compound movements for your shoulders. People who add front raises to their routines often ignore the other heads of the shoulder muscle. The most common being the rear delts. The rear delts play a major role in having a proper muscular balance. It has been observed that they have a significant role in reducing shoulder injuries. The Fix: Your front delts do not need special emphasis via isolation movements. You can skip it altogether and instead add a rear delt isolation movement into your routine. The face pulls could be a great exercise to add to your routine, especially if you do not do anything to isolate the rear delts.

  19. We all make mistakes. That's what makes us human. However, it's always better to learn from someone else's mistake than to do one by yourself. via GIPHY So, today I am going to tell you about a few mistakes that almost every guy makes when he starts his fitness journey. Make sure you learn from it and avoid committing these small yet significant mistakes: 1. Training Without Guidance via GIPHY With tons of information available on the internet, it is becoming difficult to identify what to follow and what not. I don't need to mention the huge number of 'bro science' experts out there who give random advice based on their own pseudo-science. Your search for any random topic on health and fitness and the search results are flooded with all kinds of opinion. You will find a contradicting opinion about the same topic too. via GIPHY So how would you make out the difference and how would you choose what's best for you? Well, you let an expert do that for you. Exercise science and nutrition principles cannot be learnt overnight. So it's better to hire someone who is qualified to do it for you. If you are a beginner I would strongly recommend beginning your fitness journey under a good coach who can guide you according to your fitness goals. Otherwise, you will end up watching videos like '6 packs in 30 days' and then blame your genes for everything. 2. Taking Too Many Supplements via GIPHY I get so many queries over the internet from beginners that which supplement shall they start with. Well, the answer is none. Aggressive marketing from supplement manufacturers has made people believe that you cannot achieve your desired level of fitness without supplements. This is not true. In fact, no matter how many supplements you take, they will work only when your food intake is on point. Also, you can achieve very good physique or fitness levels without any kind of supplementation too. It's just how smartly you program your diet and workout. Beginners fall prey to the trainers in their gym and start taking useless supplements like Glutamine, fat burners, mass gainers and what not. Trust me, if you invest the same amount in natural foods or in hiring a good coach, you will get better results. 3. Starving In The Name Of Dieting via GIPHY Another misconception that generally beginners have is that they need to starve in order to get in shape. They would leave chapati, rice, egg yolk, fruits, milk and whatever else out there which is absolutely nutritious. I have seen people coming up to me and telling me that they were consuming around 1000 calories a day in order to lose fat. The desperation to lose fat leads to such a drastic calorie deficit. However, you need to understand you won't become lean overnight by reducing your calories to such extreme levels. In fact, it is going to be unhealthy in the long run and may even lead to a risk of deficiencies and metabolic slowdown. If someone tells you that you need to cut down your calories to such a drastic extent that just means that he is naïve in terms of his knowledge of nutrition. If you are working out at least 5 days a week and maintaining a deficit or around 500 calories, you can easily achieve better results than by being malnourished.

  20. As a coach, I face a few questions a lot. "What are the golden rules for fat loss?" "How can we accelerate the fat loss process?" Though there aren't any 'rules' as such that you need to follow, you can follow a few simple guidelines which can help you to burn more fat and speed up your fat loss journey. via GIPHY Let's look at three such 'rules' that will help you in your fat loss: 1. Prioritize Resistance Training This is a mistake made by a majority of the people training for fat loss. They believe that cardio will help them more for fat loss and resistance training is only for people who are preparing for some kind of bodybuilding competition. This is not true. Resistance training will help you build muscle mass which in turn will help you to burn more calories even while you are outside the gym. Muscles are metabolically more active and thus your body burns more calories to build and maintain more muscle mass. So while you may burn more calories in a cardio session in the gym, it is resistance training that will help you speed up that sluggish metabolism and accelerate your fat loss journey. 2. Up Your Protein Intake via GIPHY Once you implement rule number one, you will have to compliment it with rule number two. When you do intense resistance training for at least 4-5 days in a week, your body will need an appropriate amount of protein to repair the broken muscle tissue. 1 gram per kg of body weight is a good place to start with and thereby you can increase it as per your individual requirements. Consuming enough protein in your daily diet also helps you to regulate your hunger which is a major issue while doing fat loss. You should always prefer foods in its natural form like chicken, milk, fish, tofu, eggs etc rather than taking it through supplements. This will increase your satiety factor too. 3. Moderate (Or Stop) Your Alcohol Consumption via GIPHY I won't say that a pint of beer will derail your fat loss journey altogether, but yes, frequent alcohol consumption will actually delay the results that you are looking for. Firstly, excessive alcohol consumption has a direct impact in slowing down your metabolism and secondly, there are possible chances that you won't stick to your diet once you start consuming alcohol. I've never seen anybody having just the drinks and not eating along anything else along with it. That anything else generally takes the form of food items that are high in calories. Since alcohol in itself is a high-calorie drink(cocktails and mixers) when it is combined with other high-calorie foods, it becomes a problem. Fat loss means that you need to follow a calorie deficit diet for a certain period of time. It becomes difficult to maintain that deficit when you have such high-calorie meals every now and then. Thus it is better to cut down or rather stay away from alcohol for some time.

  21. The financial year end is here and you would be stuck in the office for long hours neck deep in work. You would barely be getting enough sleep let alone the time to go to the gym. via GIPHY Here is what usually happens during such time, you end up gaining weight, your waistline increases horizontally and you lose the motivation to go to the gym altogether. Well, guess what? If you are gaining a lot of weight and getting fatter during this time, it is YOUR fault. via GIPHY Yes, you read that right. Now, I am not here to blame you. Rather, I am saying that it is you who has control over these things. If you are smart enough, you can manage your fitness just right at this time and get back to progress as soon as the workload drops. 1. Add Some Activity To Your Sedentary Routine via GIPHY Most jobs require you to sit all day long and this drops your activity all day long. You can include very simple things like taking the stairs in place of the elevator, getting up from your desk whenever you get a chance and get a 5-minute walk, and so on. Just increasing this activity can help you burn 100 - 200 extra calories a day. 2. Get In A Quick Workout Session via GIPHY Cannot get to the gym? No problem. Understand that during this stressful time, your goal is to maintain and do enough. Do simple things like having a quick 15-min workout in the morning by doing 50 push-ups and 50 body squats. It is not comparable to the gym but it is something. The extra benefit being you will feel fresh and have a great start to the day. 3. Stop Mindless Binging via GIPHY I have worked in a corporate structure and they do little things to make your life a bit more comfortable there. And yes, most of this comfort is adding to your waistline. I have seen pantries filled with biscuits and chips and most employees walking to the pantries and getting these things to the table and mindlessly eating them. One simple thing - Out of sight, out of mind. Do not stock your tables with these high-calorie foods as you never know you may end up eating a 1000 extra calories a day. 4. Use Low-Calorie Beverages via GIPHY At times when you are stressed out, you do feel the need to eat or drink something. Instead of going with the juices loaded with a lot of calories, you can pick low-calorie beverages like salted lemonades, lemon sodas with salt, diet coke, green tea, or black coffee. These little things will simply help you maintain your fitness during these stressful times and you would not go down that road where you start ignoring your health and pile on a ton of weight in the future and regret it.

  23. On Tuesday, around 11 AM, a time when most of us were either waking up or getting ready or stuck in traffic; PM Modi was busy writing a tweet that was about to shake the nation to its core, the moment he clicked the post button. He wrote this, "I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media." This tweet sent everyone into a frenzy and reminded them of the day when PM Modi suddenly announced Demonetisation. Panic amongst public rose to another level when PM Modi didn't turn up at 11:45 to make the announcement, and he was half an hour late. मà¥à¤°à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤°à¥ दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤, à¤à¤ सवà¥à¤°à¥ लà¤à¤­à¤ 11.45 - 12.00 बà¤à¥ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ महतà¥à¤µà¤ªà¥à¤°à¥à¤£ सà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¶ लà¥à¤à¤° à¤à¤ª à¤à¥ बà¥à¤ à¤à¤à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 If you're wondering why we're talking about it now. Well, that's because we were standing in a queue outside the ATM near our office. Don't lie, you too checked your wallet and your bank balance,right? Jokes apart, the announcement had nothing to do with Demonetisation, so your money is safe. In the journey of every nation there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today. India has successfully tested the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile. Congratulations to everyone on the success of #MissionShakti. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 PM Modi's special announcement was about 'Mission Shakti', an operation under which an Indian-made anti-satellite weapon called A-SAT shot down a live satellite on a low earth orbit. In fact, with this India has become the fourth country after Russia, the US and China to get this technology. An important message to the nation. Watch. https://t.co/0LEOATgOOQ — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 Well, this is indeed a remarkable achievement for the nation, but by this time, Twitter was not even bothered about it because they were busy ranting and cracking jokes on demonetisation and PM Modi. And in all honesty, these memes and jokes are so funny that they are actually better than PM Modi's speech.

  24. If you want to build muscle, there is a chance your gym guruji tells you this: 1. Train to failure ALL the time 2. Train one muscle group for hours always 3. Train hard till you are done After a while, it frustrates you when you apply the above things and you train hard, but you don't see any results. Well, I can understand because I have done these in the past. Guess what? You need to do some smart work and not just hard work. If you are doing any of the below things, take a step back and change things: 1) Doing Too Much Volume The first mistake is doing too much volume. The volume of your workout = sets x load x reps. Your total workload is the key to muscle growth, but doing too much actually hinders recovery and will stop your progress. Most people benefit from ~10-20 sets/muscle/week. Your actual volume depends on various individual factors like age, training experience, genetics, etc. A good rule of thumb is dropping your volume by 1/3rd to half to take a step back and slowly push it up to 20 sets per muscle group per week. 2) Doing Junk Volume Aka Very Light Lifting Along with too much volume, what's equally wrong is not going hard enough on each set. If you have 4 reps left for failure, you will be able to do much more volume because each set is so damn easy. I recommend doing each set ~1-2 reps from failure but sometimes more, sometimes less. 3) No Structured Plan If you don't have a plan and just walk into a gym, you may make progress. That doesn't mean your progress can't be better. When you have a plan, you reduce guesswork and can manage variables better. Have a set training plan for 4-6 weeks and get stronger in it than doing random workouts. 4. Doing 'Bro'- Splits It's okay to start with one muscle per day but not suitable for long-term progress. You either do too much volume which leaves you sore for your other sessions during the week or you are limiting growth by not taking advantage of elevated muscle protein synthesis. 5) Chasing The Pump Via Lightweights: Progressive overload means you do more work, and thus more volume, over time. Getting a pump causes muscle growth, but you will reach a point at which you have to increase the load/reps. So focus on doing more volume over time and do pump work at the end of your workouts and not your entire workout. 6) Not Applying A Wide Range Of Rep Scheme: Lastly, scientific research has shown that muscle growth can happen in a variety of rep ranges. Training in rep ranges outside of 8-12 reps can help you train different capacities and help push for progressive overload. So you can split your training in a broad spectrum from 3-30 reps.

  25. Almost 80 per cent of the Indian population is vitamin D deficient. This comes as a surprise as we get ample sunlight almost throughout the year. However, with the kind of lifestyle that this generation is getting used to, they generally do not get enough sun exposure so that their body can make enough vitamin D by itself. Majority of the time, the day is spent inside an office, working in front of a computer desk; how can you expect your body to get enough sun exposure like this? Also, I don't need to mention the poor eating habits of the urban population of the country that has contributed to the obesity epidemic. Forget about getting enough vitamin D in the diet, the general population doesn't even consume enough protein and fibre on a daily basis. Now while you may think that your body is functioning normally even with low vitamin D levels, let me tell you that your body needs vitamin D for many vital processes. Prolonged low levels of Vitamin D in the body may lead to various chronic ailments as well as weaker joints and bones in the long run. Thus, follow the below-mentioned effective ways to get your daily dose of vitamin D and keep your body fit and healthy: 1. Get Enough Sunlight I believe that this is something that you would already know but I am sure you haven't made any efforts for it yet. We all know that exposure to sunlight helps our body to produce more vitamin D. But what you would not know is that vitamin D derived through sunlight circulates in the body for twice as long as compared to vitamin D from foods or supplements. Thus, this is the best medium to have your daily intake of vitamin D. Though there is no official statement on the amount of time that you need to spend in the sun to get enough vitamin D, around 10 to 15 minutes is the general norm. It is interesting to note that people with darker skin need to spend more time in the sun as compared to people who are fair. 2. Supplements Supplements for vitamin D is available in two forms, D2 and D3, however, it is D3 that is more effective in maintaining vitamin D levels. Daily dosage for vitamin D supplement depends upon your current levels of vitamin D. Thus it is always better to get your Vitamin D levels checked before beginning any kind of supplementation. Generally, 1000 to 4000 IU is safe and healthy supplementation for a healthy age group. Still, you should always consult your physician before beginning any kind of supplementation. 3. Eating Foods High In Vit D There are various food items in vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food categories through which you can aim to increase your vitamin D intake. A few good non-vegetarian foods that are high in vitamin d are egg yolk, fatty fish and other kinds of seafood. On the other hand, mushrooms are the only completely plant-based source of vitamin D. 4. Fortified Food Items Vitamin fortified food items are becoming more common day by day. Initially, it was just milk which used to come fortified with Vitamin D, but now there are various other food items as well. Soy Milk, Almond Milk, fruit juices, cereals, yoghurt, tofu etc are an example of food items commonly available in fortified form.
