  1. A total of 130 troops, 95 police officers and 60 firefighters and three helicopters begin search at crash site
  2. The much awaited teaser for Vijay Deverakonda's Liger is finally out, and as expected, the man has been successful in reeling us all in, yet again. He plays an MMA fighter in the movie, and looks like a monster - in the best way possible. View this post on Instagram Vijay looks like a literal beast in this aptly named film, and has worked extremely hard for this over a period of more than a year. Kuldip Sethi, his trainer, has revealed 5 things that helped him achieve this super impressive physique. View this post on Instagram 1. Consistency Vijay started his transformation journey in December, just before COVID hit us. After training for 3-4 months, all the gyms shut and he had to make do with home workouts. While it was extremely limited for the physique goal he had, he kept going with whatever equipment he had at home. While it felt like an uphill task, his consistency made sure that he did not let all the progress slide off. View this post on Instagram 2. Nutrition Kuldip mentioned that even though training is extremely important, nutrition is the real game changer. Sticking to one's calories as well as macros when there is a goal to be achieved is crucial for succeeding. While everyone seems to be more curious about 'what exercises have been done' to achieve a particular physique, it's the nutrition bit that's actually more important. View this post on Instagram 3. Carb loading as per requirement After a fat loss phase, carb loading is important to make the muscles look fuller. While the popular perception is 'no carbs will lead to a chiseled physique', that's not entirely true. Carbohydrates are important and need to be utilized wisely when it comes to achieving a physique like Vijay Deverakonda in Liger. View this post on Instagram4. Carb depletion and high protein diet as per requirement Vijay was also put under a carb depletion diet once he reached a particular body fat percentage to achieve his physique goals for the character. While carbs are important, one may need to temporarily get rid of a major chunk of them during shredding. Sometimes, to achieve that ultra ripped look, carb depletion can be an important tool. However, one should only resort to that under expert supervision, as it can be counterproductive otherwise. View this post on Instagram5. Goal oriented training Even though Vijay already had a lean muscular physique before Liger, the physique required for this particular role was extremely different, and required specialized training in terms of exercise as well as nutrition. While taking inspiration from stars in terms of their physique is great, beginners must keep a few things in mind, like sustainability of an active lifestyle and long term training benefits, before jumping in the bandwagon and blindly following someone's training plan.

  6. Fitness myths are lethal for your progress and gains. While we all want to be fit, knowing exactly what to do is a challenge since there are so many theories floating around - some of them true, and some of them absolutely false. This is the very reason we rely on fitness trainers - but thanks to profiteering and little to no proper education, most of these so-called 'experts' are just quacks who are helping in the spread of misinformation and myths as per their convenience. via GIPHY To deal with fitness and diet myths better, here are 7 wrong fitness advice bits to look out for, that your fitness trainer may resort to if they're not qualified enough. Please get rid of them immediately if they do. 1. "Stop eating rice." © iStock How many times have you heard this in gyms and around dinner tables? Absolute nightmare as an Indian, right? The good news is, you do not have to give up rice in order to lose fat or build muscle. Quantity matters. If you stick to your macros and are consuming less calories than your Total Daily Energy Expenditure, you will lose fat even with having rice in your diet. 2. "Give up sugar." © iStock Now, don't get us wrong, sugar isn't good for you, that bit is true. However, again, the key is quantity. The correct statement is, 'excessive sugar' isn't good for you. If you stick to your macros and stay mindful of overall calories consumed, a bit of sugar here and there is absolutely fine. The bottomline? You don't 'have to give up sugar', unless you're diabetic, of course. It's just a lazy piece of advice. 3. "Drink green tea." © iStock The only people directly benefiting from you drinking green tea are the people selling green tea. Yes, green tea may have a number of subtle health benefits, but losing fat/weight is DEFINITELY NOT one of them. Stop thinking you can have all the chhole bhature you want and then undo the damage with 10 cups of green tea. Sorry! 4. "Have warm lemon water with honey in the morning to cut fat." © iStock Sounds good, doesn't work. Also, nothing 'cuts fat'. As soon as you hear anyone say 'eating or drinking blah will cut fat', run. They don't know what they're talking about. 5. "Drink apple cider vinegar in the morning to get rid of excess fat." © iStock ACV may be beneficial as a laxative or even in case of digestion, but it does not 'melt fat' or 'cut belly fat'. If it were the case, everyone would just have apple cider vinegar instead of working out or being watchful in terms of their diet. 6. "You can have brown rice/brown bread but not white rice/white bread." © iStock In terms of caloric composition, white and brown varieties of rice and bread are not all that different. If you're following quantified nutrition and sticking to your macros, it does not matter whether you're having the white or brown variety. 7. "Don't have food past 7/8/9 PM because it will make you fat." View the full article
  7. Is there a single industry that holds sway over an audience the way Bollywood enjoys in India? They’re the penultimate trendsetters in this country. Bollywood celebs are forever surrounded by doting eyes, looking at them for the latest fashion inspiration, relationship advice, grooming trends and fitness tips. While our intentions might be noble, sometimes, it can border on obsession if we don’t look at the situation with ample nuance. One such person who has been up close and personal with these stars is Shivoham. MensXP connected with him for Bollywood Insiders, an experience curated by Airbnb India, where he highlighted the herculean efforts these celebrities undertake to look the way they do. View this post on Instagram Shivoham is a pioneer of the Indian fitness scene, introducing the country to Crossfit in 2009. He’s even trained your favourite actors such as Aamir Khan, Jacqueline Fernadez, Ranbir Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. This decorated trainer-to-the-stars knows what it takes to actually look like these celebs. View this post on Instagram Having seen it all, Shivoham is well aware of the perils ordinary people fall prey to in their pursuit to imitate their idols. While you definitely can achieve your dream body, just like your favourite celeb, it shouldn’t be at the expense of your health and sanity. There’s a healthier and more sustainable way to approach your fitness, according to Shivoham. Here are a few excerpts from our discussion with Shivoham about why copy pasting celebrity fitness routines is unrealistic: 1. Different Goals © Shivoham Throughout his career, Shivoham has trained several celebs and he says they know what it takes to get to their goals: “When you’re training a celebrity they know what they’re getting into. You can expect them to train once a day, twice a day depending on what needs to be done. They’re strict about their diet too. Whatever is needed to get to their goal they’re ready to do. Whereas a normal person has got their job, they’ve got their family, they’ve got other responsibilities so, they should treat fitness as an aspect of their life, not their life completely.” 3. Paid To Be Fit © Shivoham Physical standards keep changing over time. For example, Tiger Shroff’s audience has different fitness expectations of him as compared to his father’s time. Being an industry insider for a while now, Shivoham echoed the sentiment: “Bollywood aesthetic goals 15 years ago were completely different, there was Salman Khan, Sunny Deol, Suniel Shetty and Akshay Kumar. They also had a different kind of body when it came to aesthetics. Modern aesthetics are completely different, it’s all about muscularity, rippedness and definition. It has its place, but that’s not all there is to fitness. Today, fitness has become more about the mind than just the body. Especially, since we’ve seen this in the pandemic situation in the past year and a half. People have suffered more mentally than physically. That has definitely taken a front seat. People are investing more time and money towards fitness as a whole, which is the mental aspect as well as the physical.” 5. Realistic Expectations View the full article

  10. We got in touch with Darrell Foster, who trained and guided Farhan Akhtar during his body transformation as a boxer for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film Toofaan, and discussed the actor’s workout routine, diet plan, and the mental strength it took for him to get in the required shape. View this post on Instagram Farhan Akhtar Diet Plan And Manipulation For ‘Toofaan’ Akhtar had to undergo some significant changes in the amount of food he used to consume on a day-to-day basis. In the film, the actor can be seen in two very drastic shapes, which made him bulk up first and then shed all that fat to become chiseled. i. Bulking Up Phase: © Amazon Prime Video During this phase, Farhan was made to eat around 5000 calories per day, which is almost double of how much he was supposed to eat in order to maintain his weight. Foster says that he had taken away all restrictions on his diet during this time and allowed him to indulge in high-carb and high-protein foods.There were times when Akhtar would feel bloated and completely filled up to the neck and he’d still be made to consume even more calories in the form of shakes.ii. Leaning Down Phase: © Amazon Prime Video In the initial days of leaning down, Akhtar’s intake was brought down to 3000 calories per day (which is still over 500 calories more than what he’d usually consume).Eventually, the restrictions got even more severe and his intake was slashed down to 1200-1500 calories per day.Akhtar would have to wake up in the middle of the night to eat sodium-rich foods as he would lose a lot of water while training for over 6-8 hours per day.Additionally, on days he had to highlight his abs, and appear “shredded”, he had to avoid water retention - a common but potentially dangerous process that bodybuilders, athletes and actors commonly practice to appear lean.How To Get Ripped Like Farhan Akhtar From ‘Toofaan’? View this post on Instagram Here’s what Akhtar’s workout routine would look like, in addition to the 6-8 hours of boxing sessions: Monday - Chest and Triceps Incline Bench Press (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Dumbbell Bench Press (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Cable Flys (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Incline Cable Flyes (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Incline Dumbbell Flyes (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12Reps) Dips (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Tricep Pushdown (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Hammer Strength Bench (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Cable Kickbacks (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Tuesday - Back and Biceps Deadlifts (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Barbell Rows (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Lat Pulldowns (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Cable Rows (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)1-Arm Dumbbell Rows (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Wide Grip Pull-Ups (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Hammer Curls (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Barbell Curls (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)EZ Bar Bicep Curls (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Preacher Curls (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Wednesday - HIIT Training Specifics unavailable Thursday - Shoulders and Traps Military Dumbbell Press (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Dumbbell Shrugs (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Barbell Strict Press (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Barbell Shrugs (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Front Dumbbell Raises (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Shoulder Width Push-Ups (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Friday - Legs Back Squats (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Lunges (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Leg Press (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Calf Raise (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Seated Hamstring Curls (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps) Squat to Box Jumps (1x Warm Up Set + 3x Sets Of 8-12 Reps)Saturday And Sunday - Light Cardio and Rest View the full article
  11. There is a reason why big cats like lions and tigers, despite being so fascinating, are considered to be the most fearsome animals in the animal kingdom. © Instagram/Kody Antle A very recent example of this was a horrifying incident when a lioness mauled her trainer during a circus performance in Russia. According to the scary footage which has gone viral on social media, a lioness named Vega could be seen attacking her trainer Maxi Orlov in front of spectators during one of the shows at the Ural Travelling Circus. The footage showed the lioness jumping onto Orlov and sinking her teeth into the trainer just as he advanced towards her with a pole. It was reported that scared children and parents rushed out from the arena after seeing the incident, with one woman even suffering an epileptic seizure after witnessing the shocking scene. "The lionesses went berserk. When we ran away, there was a wild roar from the animals. The tamer was attacked," said a witness. Fortunately, Orlov and other members of the circus were able to fend off the big cat, after which the trainer was rushed to the hospital with injuries to his arms and legs. As per reports, prior to the performance, Vega had already been seen brawling with another lioness in the ring. View the full article
  12. Meghan Trainer admits being pregnant during the height of Covid-19?s second wave has been ?spooky?
  13. Amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, people have been asked to self-quarantine themselves in order to stop the virus from spreading any further. The very first step taken by the government was to shut down all the gyms, theatres, schools, malls and all the other public places where people could gather in large numbers. Itâs already been more than two weeks that people are locked in their homes with no physical contact from the outside world. Now, PM Narendra Modi has also announced a 21-day lockdown which means we have been restricted to our homes for a longer duration now. Well, people are also working from home and with gyms being shut, their movements are also restricted. So, the only thing to keep your body active is to either work out or burn off calories in doing the household chores. People on social media platforms are complaining that they are lacking the motivation or are finding it difficult to figure out a few easy and handy exercises that can be done at home. In order to address their problems, I got in touch with Shah Rukh Khan and Varun Dhawanâs personal trainer Prashant Sawant and asked him to share some of the easy exercises that can be done by anyone at home. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@prashantsixpack) He told us, âI have built my career on the basis of repetitions so I advise you should start with a minimum of 20 reps in one set. Let me tell you that anyone can do exercises at home without weights.â Here are 5 exercises you can do as advised by Prashant : â1. Surya Namaskars When I started, I used to do like 100 in one go. But, I would suggest starting with 10 as a beginner. 2. Squats You can totally do squats as they will help you burn those extra calories quickly. 3. Pull-Ups You can have something to hang on to, and easily incorporate pull-ups in your daily regime. 4. Planks and Whole Abs Workout This is the time you can focus on strengthening your core muscles. You can do planks and crunches staying at home. 5. Cleaning and Focusing On Household Chores I have been taking care of my kid and playing with him and also cleaning the house and this is helping in burn calories. I would suggest to keep yourself busy with something.â Furthermore into the conversation, I told him that people who werenât actively involved with working out earlier at the gyms have now become even more lethargic given the current situation. So, I asked him for his suggestion for the people who are completely inactive during this lockdown. On this, he told me, âFor all the people who are not active, they should start taking small steps. They can start with a 20-minute workout regime. They can do a bit of warm-up and they can start with 10 reps (repetitions) and then keep increasing their stamina. I would suggest a very basic workout regime as nowadays, all the movements have been restricted and the body is going into a lethargic mode. As people are working from home, they are sitting in one place and no one knew that they would be restricted for this long. It's better to start moving a bit as this can only help in keeping your body active.â View this post on InstagramFollow the circuit at home.. Perform each exercise for 30 Sec and you can go up to 45 sec Also.. start 10 min warm up jog in place or skipping or you can do burppies , after workout 10 to 20 mins cardio you can even dance , stairs, walk, run, burn 200 cal in 20 min Step up Squats Star jump Squats with tricep extension Windshield wiper Good morning to dB press Crunches Round kicks right side Round kicks left side Ball rollout push up Standing mountain climber Squats jack Chest press Scorpion push ups Jog in place Knee tuck up Jumping jack Swiss ball abs crunch Ball hamstring curl #Committedtofitness #workoutfromhome @reebokindia @bodysculptorofficial @leankitchenbymaya @rohanbodysculptor @maya_pereiraA post shared by (@prashantsixpack) I also wanted to understand why are people getting demotivated and are not willing to continue with their workout regime at home. Explaining his stance on the same, he told me, âPeople, maybe, are getting demotivated by seeing workout videos on Instagram. One reason could be that they are not able to cope with what other people are doing and the kind of exercises they are doing. I would suggest following a tutorial that has stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3.â He also went on to add, âDo not lose hope and be consistent with working out, you will eventually see the impact. Build on your stamina step by step. I wouldn't suggest sweating out hard in the first three days and then, you lose the grip so keep it slow and gradual progress will help you attain your goals.â Prashant is not only just a trainer but he also owns a chain of gyms which are shut due to the outbreak. I asked him how is he taking of all as the business is surely getting impacted. On this, he said, âI am taking it positively and for the gym owners, they will have to be patient and stay calm because of this outbreak. Well, it's time to be with your family. I would advise keeping yourself busy with whatever you like, be it reading, cooking or playing with your kids. This will help in keeping your mind healthy.â As we are about to end the conversation, I take up the chance to ask him the golden question about how is SRK working out at home. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@prashantsixpack) , âI have been training Shah Rukh sir for good 22 years and the rapport we share now is quite strong. I have already given him the workout and he is doing it twice a day at his home. Right now, he is focusing more on strengthening his legs.â He explained. âI would suggest keeping working out at home as it will keep your mind sane,â he said and signed off. Well, MensXP hopes that you will take Prashantâs suggestions seriously and incorporate them into your lives. View the full article
  14. Kumail Nanjiani knows how to break the internet. From some really zany and off the cuff comments and jokes to some really colourful interviews, the man knows how to keep an audience at the edge of their seat. © Reuters When he posted a few photographs after getting ripped as a lumberjack, the internet went berserk. So much so, that PornHub acknowledged his physique, in the most unique way possible. © Instagram/kumailn Now, you might imagine that Kumail had to work out like a beast and practically had to live in the gym to get a physique as chiselled as that one. However, his trainer, Grant Roberts of Granite Gym in Beverly Hills, California, revealed, that his intensive workout routine was just a part of his transformation. Notably, Roberts himself has acted in a number of films, including the 2009 sports drama, Invictus, which starred Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. © Instagram/grantrobertsfit In a recent interview with a major US-based fitness magazine, Roberts revealed that although Nanjiani did work out like a mad man and went full gung ho on whatever was asked of him, his intensive workout regime was just a part of it. It seems the devil's in the details. Here's what exactly Kumail had to go through to get in shape for his role in Marvel's The Eternals. © Instagram/kumailn An Individualised Fitness Plan © Instagram/kumailn First and foremost, it was important to formulate a customised fitness regime that would work for Kumail in a manner that suited him the best. The thing is, most people forget that what works for someone else, might not work at all for them. In such a case, a personalised plan, that has been developed by expert nutritionists, fitness trainers and gym trainers becomes a must. Says Roberts, “With Kumail, the main goal was increasing muscular size, dropping excess body fat and creating total body symmetry, so keeping his composition and lifestyle in mind, we came up with a plan that would work around him.” Nutrition © iStock Robert says that apart from working out 4-5 days a week, Kumail had to tweak his diet a number of times. “Initially, the focus was on protein, water, healthy fast like omega 3and just the right amount of carbs. However, with time, he had to make some finer adjustments to make him look more vascularly fit, without dropping muscle,” he continues. Recovery © Instagram/emilyvgordon Notice how in the previous point we wrote that Kumail worked out for 4-5 days a week? Well, that's because your days for rest, or days where you let your body recover, are important. Says Roberts, “Whether you're working out for 15-20 mins, or attending two sessions a day, intense work out routines are exhausting, can be painful, and drains you completely.” On his days for recovery, Kumail would often go for massages and stretching exercises, so that his muscles wouldn't atrophy. Disciplining The Mind © iStock The first actual step in one's journey towards a fitter self is making the decision, and setting reasonable plans and achievable goals. Says Roberts, “Intelligent program design includes achievable landmarks and checkpoints while leaving room for modifications, whether results are ahead or behind schedule.” Maintenance © Instagram/kumailn Finally, there is the manner in which you maintain yourself after you've got the physique that you wanted. It is alarmingly easy to let things go once you've hit your desired inches, or hit a certain weight. However, what follows next is the actual task. Says Roberts, “Maintenance requires working out hard enough to keep everything from atrophying and consuming a maintenance diet of just the right amount of essential water, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals while keeping non-essential carbohydrates in check.” Now, it may not be as intense and seemingly rigid as the process of whipping yourself in shape, but because it is a constant endeavour, things become challenging. Considering the people that Kumail would be cast opposite in The Eternals, which includes the likes of Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek & Kit Harington among other stalwarts, being funny in an action film, while it may have its moment, won't simply cut it. No wonder, Kumail turned towards the professionals for help. View the full article
  15. It has been less than a week since Dabangg 3 released and the movie is well on its way towards touching the Rs.100 crore mark. Say what you want about the movie, the story or even the job the actors have done in the film, one thing that ensures any Salman Khan starrer film to be a hit is simply his presence. The mega-star that the 53-year-old has become has a lot to do with the kind of trendsetter he has always been. One of the biggest, most revolutionary trends that he got to Bollywood was the idea of leading heroes with great bodies. © GS Productions Sure, there is a massive difference between the actor's physique in Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya and Dabangg 3. He was a lot leaner and had a better muscle definition as compared to now but the fact that he has kept his workout regimen so strict is impressive in itself. View this post on Instagram Work in progress... A post shared by Chulbul Pandey (@beingsalmankhan) on Jul 27, 2019 at 1:03am PDT But how does he do it? We got in touch with Rakesh Udiyar, a renowned celebrity fitness expert who has been training the actor for more than 10 years to know more about Salman's workout plan and diet. Here's what he had to say: “He (Salman Khan) always takes a clean diet and is very particular about his workouts. Rarely has he lived in Mumbai and missed exercising. This kind of dedication has kept him for so many years. “Even when Salman is not preparing for any movie, his four-pack abs are visible on any given day because of his everyday routine. “During Tiger Zinda Hai, it was rumored that his abs were made from VFX. But this is completely wrong. A person who is so dedicated to diet and workouts, abs come naturally to him.

A post shared by Chulbul Pandey (@beingsalmankhan) on Jul 1, 2019 at 6:30am PDT “He himself is very knowledgeable in terms of fitness and stays in constant touch with nutritionists, doctors and friends who are in the fitness business. He continuously takes part in a lot of health-related discussions. “For Dabangg 3, I had to make a lot of changes to his workout routine. For the look of this movie, I prepared his workout and diet plan which he followed quite well. You can find the result of this plan by looking at his impressive physique in the movie.

Regardless of if Salman Khan is at home or away on a shoot, there is a certain diet-plan he strictly follows. â Egg whites and oats in the morning â For snacks, he carries some dry fruits and a fruit â Biryani, Fish / Chicken and Salad for lunch â Some more dry fruits and a fruit as an evening snack â Fish, brown rice and some green salad for dinner. “Salman always prefers home-made food. Even on the shoot, he loves to take food made by his mother,” Udiyar says. What Does Salman's Workout Routine Look Like? “The credit for Salman's fitness goes to his honesty and discipline,” says the trainer. “Working on his body for over 30 years, he has made it a priority to never skip working out even for a day. If he is unable to workout during the day because of work, he covers for it late at night.

Instead, I replaced it with kickboxing, stretching, volume training, body weight training etc. “Salman spends about 40-45 minutes doing cardio on an empty stomach in the morning. After this, he stretches and works on smaller muscles. “One hour after lunch, he performs slow cardio or simple body weight workouts such as, pushups, simple squats, lunges .

A post shared by Chulbul Pandey (@beingsalmankhan) on Jun 18, 2019 at 12:18pm PDT “In the evening, he focuses on bigger muscles and areas such as back, chest and legs. At night he goes on a 40-minute walk," the trainer said. While Udiyar understands that Salman Khan's fans idolise his body and wish to look like him, he says “Salman Bhai's body is 30 years of hard work. Dedication is necessary if you want his kind of body. There is no shortcut to fitness.” “Avoid ego lifting in the gym so that you can train yourself for a long time. If you see someone doing heavy lifts and you try to do the same in the beginning, you may get hurt. “Diet is very important for any transformation. Always go for a well-balanced diet and stay fit by working out. “Finally, both cardio and weight-training play have important roles in weight loss. For this, train one body part daily and do not apply more than 18-20 sets," he added. NOTE: Check out the original article on MensXP Hindi, here View the full article
  16. The fitness industry is full of fake supplements, fake coaches and God knows what all other fake things out there. With fake coaches comes their fake advice that holds its own place and has been prevalent since a long long time. Read on to know more about some of these fake promises that are generally made by these so-called 'fake coaches' and let's find out if there is a shred of truth to them: 1. Fat Burners Will Get You Lean via GIPHY Sold by various fancy names like the fat cutter and fat destroyer, the only thing that these fat burners are going to destroy is your pocket. You are better off investing in a good coach and proper dietary foods. If at all, these fat burners may help a professional athlete before a competition. If you are an amateur just trying to find his way to get fit and lean, you will get no advantage by including any fat burner in your supplement arsenal. 2. Arbuterol Is Effective In Burning Fat Trainers often recommend this supplement to their clients for extreme fat loss. Had these trainers ever noticed the contents of the product and their usage in the human body, the scenario would've been different. Arbeturol is actually a diuretic which may help you with getting rid of subcutaneous water retention. It plays with the mineral levels in your body temporarily. While it may help you in looking a little dry for some days but it is not going to be helpful in burning fat in any manner. 3. Don't Have Salt In Your Diet via GIPHY The credit to this one goes to competitive bodybuilding. Competitive Bodybuilders use this strategy of leaving salt before their competition to look sharper on the stage. Salt has nothing to do with fat loss. It is used for temporary loss of fluid, which is also debatable. Salt has no direct correlation to fat loss and thus you should not leave salt to get lean. 4. “Keto Worked For My Friend, It Will Work For You Too” via GIPHY The ketogenic diet is quite popular these days. Drastic results in weeks have made it immensely popular with people who are overweight and obese. While it may have worked wonders for someone but it is not necessary that it will do the same for you. I've seen people failing miserably on this diet. For people who did achieve fat loss using keto, gained back the lost weight in a couple of weeks as they resumed carbs in their diet. I've seen people claiming that keto is the best diet for fat loss. No, it's not. The best diet for fat loss is the one which is sustainable in the long run and can be made a part of the lifestyle. If that's what you can promise then keto may be the best diet for you otherwise you will be in a limbo of losing weight and gaining it back after introducing carbs in your diet. 5. Leaving Chapati Out Of Your Diet Will Get You Lean via GIPHY Majority of the trainers still believe in the philosophy of eliminating chapati from a client's diet to make him lean. Well, that's what happens when you ask your trainer to prepare a diet plan for you. Chapati is a very good source of carb that has a decent GI index. It also has good fibre content making it an ideal choice to be included in your daily diet. And yes, you can get lean while having chapati in your diet daily. What really matters for fat loss is your overall macro intake for the day and not just a single food item.

  17. There have been numerous games that have proven to be extremely addictive. CS: GO and Dota were known to be among the most addictive multiplayer games out there and the gaming craze has now made its way to mobile phones. Mobile phones themselves have a record of being very addictive, whether it's for social networking or just killing time, these portable gadgets are a core part of our lives today. Since the launch of PUBG on Android and iOS, users have been known to get exceedingly attached to the game. Playing a multiplayer game with your friends takes this a level further. Addictions come from a lot of things and substance abuse has been leading the charts for centuries. Today, we have become victim to portable games like PUBG and Fornite. © Android Authority PUBG Mobile has been bringing out constant features and updates which can lead to anyone getting addicted to the game. New additions to the game include maps, guns, and even challenges. In an attempt to prove supremacy, we often forget that games are built to relieve stress, not add more. In a disturbing new development, a fitness trainer from Jammu has reportedly lost his mental balance after playing the game for 10 days. According to The Indian Express, the fitness trainer got addicted to the game and played it for nearly 10 days in a row. He had to be hospitalized after he started hitting himself with blows and caused significant injury. © BlueStacks "The patient is unstable at the moment and has partially lost his mental balance," a doctor (neurologist) treating him said in anonymity. The doctor further added that even though he was recognizing people, his mind was not very conscious and still under the influence of the game. The hospital sources claimed that it was the sixth similar case to be reported in the city. Doctors have appealed to the public to keep a close watch on children who are playing the game very intensively. There have been signs that those who are playing the game so intensively are often left ignored and not understood by their loved ones. © PUBG Corporation Jammu locals have appealed to the Jammu and Kashmir Governor, Satya Pal Malik to ban such “life-threatening” games in the state and the country as well. We all want to grab that Chicken Dinner but shouldn't forget that these are simply minor virtual pleasures of life and not worth being taken so seriously. Source: The Indian Express
  18. Fitness has become an in-trend profession nowadays, with every other kid in the street claiming to be a fitness expert. With fake YouTube subscribers, purchasable Instagram followers, and photoshop skills, a lot of these pseudo-experts easily get you trapped in their marketing gimmicks and steal your money. Taking away your money is one thing but harming your health is another. And when it comes to fitness, following wrong advice can easily land you in trouble related to your health. So here are some telltale signs that the fitness experts or gurus you are following maybe shit. 1. They Say Calories Do Not Count And It Is Old Science First things first, the rule of calories is derived from the laws of thermodynamics. There is a reason they are called laws and not the mythology of thermodynamics. It is the law, it holds universal truth. And there are enough and adequate studies and case studies that show that calorie restriction or energy balance is the primary component of weight loss. © Thinkstock 2. They Say Things Like Carbs Are Poison Carbohydrates are the primary source of fuel for the human body and though they may not be essential for survival, they do play a major role when it comes to performance. Saying things like they are poison and are killing you is outright retarded and stupid. This claim goes against the basic understanding of human metabolism. 3. They Are On Drugs And All Their Clients Are On Drugs When you do anabolic steroids, things become different. As a study had shown that the subjects who took steroids made 2x the gains without any training compared to a group who trained regularly for 10 weeks. So by injecting drugs into your body and building muscle do not have anything in relation with the knowledge you may have. There is actually a good chance that it will dumb you down as you will make progress irrespective of all the shit you do. Claiming you are an expert because you took a shortcut to grow muscle is like taking care of a sick person at home and saying that you are now a doctor. 4. They Make Bold Claims Without Backing It Up With Evidence A lot of these fake gurus at times make claims based on anecdotal evidence. Saying that so-and-so exists because I have experimented with on my clients and seen results are purely anecdotal. Especially if evidence suggests otherwise! For example, a fitness guru saying cut out carbs because it is making you fat. I cut out carbs from all my client's diets and they lost weight. The matter of the fact is that the clients lost weight because you cut out a food group altogether resulting in a caloric restriction. And there is evidence and studies done on weight-loss subjects that when calories and protein are matched, higher and lower carb diets provide similar weight loss results. Higher carb diets slightly outperforming the lower carb diets. But then if this 'guru' says that it is old science, maybe not a guru after all. © Unsplash 5. They Claim That They Know Some Secrets About Fat Loss Or Muscle Gain OH, COME ON! This is physiology and there are no secrets per se. They may have a secret. A secret concoction of drugs that they may be prescribing to their clients! But saying that their secrets go beyond science and are hidden gems is a pile of bullshit.

  19. Back in 2017, we covered a few signs of trainers who suck at their job. Just like every year, I met more dumb trainers again throughout 2018 and here are more signs that will help you spot a fake trainer: 1. If You Are Not Sore, Your Workout Was A Failure Every time a client tells me how their trainer had made them believe that soreness is an indicator of an effective workout, I start to feel bad for the poor client. The reason is simple- instead of chasing strength or technique, the poor client starts chasing soreness. Due to this misconception, some trainers literally make them go through a torture, not a workout. Hundreds of bicep curls, push-ups and poor form squats and what not. If they ever tell you, 'no pain no gain' in the literal sense, you are better off doing away with him. Remember, progress towards your goal- general health, fat loss, better body or strength are signs of a good workout, not soreness. © Thinkstock Images 2) Disregards Your Schedule Some trainers really push the 'exercise regularly' too far. They start preaching living in the extremes like 'oh you are wasting time if not coming to the gym every day'. 'Morning cardio and evening weights' and things like that. And if you show your inability to be in the gym that frequently, he tells you not to expect any results. A training plan is always designed based on the sessions a person can perform weekly. That can range anywhere from 3-4 days a week for most. 3) He Body Shames You The negative way to make you take action is never the way out. It only shatters the client`s confidence and makes him feel guilty even if he's putting in work. As a result, they simply quit and start thinking 'maybe the trainer is correct'. Or in other cases, they start hating the trainer. I personally had a female client who changed her trainer as she was always body shamed in every session. 4) They Have No Logical Answer To Your Questions As a client, you have every right to ask your trainer that why has he recommended a particular schedule/supplement/nutrition protocol. And if they are legit and smart, they will answer you happily. While a bad trainer will only take offence and would get back by saying- 'do it because I said so' and 'nobody ever asks me why'. © Pixabay 5) They Are On Their Phone Most Of The Time While Training You On The Floor Well, this wasn`t true for bad trainers back in the 90s or early 2000s. But this is true in this smartphone-obsessed generation we are living in. I see this all the time on the floor. Trainers put the client on a machine and get glued to their phone, completely turning a blind eye on how the client in performing the exercise. You need to be 100% there with the client while training them, giving them more cues to lift better, correcting their form if wrong or simply for the sake of pushing them harder. Alright, folks! Make sure you share this article with a friend or family and let us know in comments section if their trainer was doing any of the above things.
