  3. Hate it or love it, anabolic steroids are a BIG part of the sports and fitness industry. Choosing to ignore them or use them is a very personal decision. If you have chosen to ignore them and treaded on the path of natural bodybuilding, more power to you. Here are 5 crucial things you really need to consider if building muscle naturally is your lifelong goal: © YouTube 1) Excessive Training Will Kill Your Gains & Won't Let You Build Much Muscle Overtraining is the worst enemy of natural lifters. Pounding on weight every day without taking rest into account, is simply setting up yourself for disaster. Why? Blame it on high levels of cortisol, our primary stress hormone. Training is a type of stress for the body and results in muscular and cellular inflammation. To counter this inflammation, our body releases cortisol, which is also an anti-inflammatory hormone. Too much stress that comes with the hours of training throughout the week means more stress, which means more inflammation and eventually, more cortisol released. When secreted in higher levels and in absence of proper nutrition, cortisol inhibits muscle tissues rebuilding. Hence, you stay small. In short, rest amply. 2) Volume & Frequency Are Inversely Proportional Volume is the amount of reps and sets you do in a workout. Frequency is how often you train a muscle group. Both of these don't go hand in hand, like many think. If your volume for every workout is high, you need more rest, which means, you need to train less. So if the volume goes up, frequency comes down. If you want to train more frequently, decrease your sets and reps per workout. This is why it's said to have an inverse relation. This will eventually help you rest more and recover better. © Pixabay 3) Eating Like The Hulk Will Only Make You Fat Eat big to get big, doesn't really fit with most natural lifters. Well, unless you are genetically and metabolically gifted. To gain muscle you need a little, let's say around 500 calories more than your maintenance calories. But what do most guys do? Eating everything! This creates a huge surplus, reaching well over 1000 calories and unsurprisingly, they get fat. Calculate your food intake wisely because you don't have steroids assisting your fat loss. 4) The Progress Will Be Slower Than You Expect. Be Very Patient. Once you are through your first year of rookie training, building muscle slows down. You will see good growth during your beginner year and you can pile up to 5-7 kilos of muscle since you are new to training. But once you get sensitized, three or 4 years into lifting, the rate at which you will build new muscle tissue will slow down drastically. It's a hard fact that you need to get to terms with.

  4. If you haven't noticed by now, we are kind of obsessed with Vicky Kaushal. And considering just how bright his star has been shining recently- what with his incredible performances in 'Raazi', 'Sanju' and 'Manmarziyaan' this year, firmly putting him on Bollywood's map- it's not surprising to see so many people fawning over him. The fact that he is a great actor isn't surprising, after all, anyone who has seen 'Masaan' can vouch for his talent and acting skills. What has been less expected, and highly refreshing, has been his impressive style game. Be it his clothes or his shoes, Vicky has become somewhat of a fashion icon. In fact, his shoe game has recently been so strong, that we can't help but take styling inspiration from him. So for all the men out there who want to adapt Vicky's fashion-forward shoe collection for themselves, but don't want to spend a fortune, here's how you could upgrade your own shoe game: A Pair Of Fashion-Forward Brown Loafers That Redefine Effortless Fashion © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal 1) These stylish tan brown horsebit loafers that are as classy as they are dependable © Amazon MRP: Rs. 2,999 Buy it here 2) Or, you could opt for these pure leather tan brown variants that will elevate your ensemble with a touch of high fashion © Amazon MRP: Rs. 3,995 Buy it here A Pair Of Stylish Black Sneakers That Should Pretty Much Be A Staple In Every Indian Guy's Wardrobe © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal 1) These fashion-forward black sneakers from Adidas that, with their white striped detail, are the perfect amalgamation of style and quality © Amazon MRP: Rs. 4,197 Buy it here A Pair Of Black High-Top Sneakers That Will Pretty Much Compliment Any Casual Or Smart Casual Attire © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal 1) These black leather sneakers from VANS are just as durable as they are stylish. © Amazon MRP: Rs. 4,499 Buy it here A Pair Of Uber Cool Red Sneakers That Will Transform Your Casual Attire Into A Modish One © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal 1) These trendy red sneakers from U.S. Polo Assn. that are not only comfortable and fashion-forward but also super affordable! © Amazon MRP: Rs. 1,399 Buy it here And Finally, A Pair Of Grey Canvas Sneakers That Epitomize The Term 'Less Is More' © Official Instagram/Vicky Kaushal 1) These grey sneakers from United Colors Of Benetton that possibly offer the best value for money out of all the shoes mentioned on our list © Amazon MRP: Rs. 1,499 Buy it here 2) Or you could opt for these grey sneakers from Boltt that aren't just simplistic and fashionable, but also happen to be the most affordable shoes mentioned on our list © Amazon MRP: Rs. 899 Buy it here
  5. “Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life” - Steve Jobs I think it's safe to say that getting a dream job or getting into that dream university is probably something all of us have on our to-do list. But dreaming to get into an institution of your choice and actually getting in are two separate things. It'll require a lot of hard work, patience and a kickass interview round to fetch that. Now we can't really do anything to help you get to the interview stage. but once you get to that interview round, you are pretty much in a make or break situation. On that note, here are five tips you MUST follow in order to ace your next interview and help strike one thing off of your bucket list. 1) Pay Attention To Your Body Language © Flickr Your body language plays a vital role in determining the type of impression you are going to leave on your interviewer. So pay attention to your body language and make sure you don't do something (scratch an itch, play with your hair, yawn) that will end up leaving a negative impression on your interviewer. 2) Dress To Impress © Unsplash While not every workplace setting enforces a dress code, you need to make sure that you are dressed in a proper and adequate manner for your interview, irrespective of the dressing policy of that organisation. There are two reasons for doing this. Firstly, it shows your maturity and sense of responsibility. And secondly, it indicates your seriousness for the job. So make sure you invest in the best formal shirts, formal trousers, formal shoes and ties before you go for your interview. 3) Conduct Proper Research About The Company/University In Question © Unsplash This is perhaps the biggest rookie mistake that an alarmingly large number of people end up making before going for their interviews. It's your duty and responsibility to find out everything you can about the company or university you're planning to interview for. After all, if your interviewer asks you something about the company, and you have no idea how to answer that question, you're going to be in a lot of trouble. 4) Exude Confidence In Whatever You Do And Say © Unsplash Whatever you say, make sure you say it with confidence and conviction. No one likes to see someone be unsure and hesitant about their own answers. So be confident and cool in whatever you say and do. But remember, there is a fine line between being confident and being arrogant, and you really don't want to come across as being in the latter camp. 5) Keep Your Answers Short And To The Point No one likes to hear anyone rambling. While it might be tempting to give the most elaborate and elucidating answers, you need to be careful about not going overboard when your interviewer starts checking her/his watch or starts losing interest. The best way to avoid this is by ensuring that your answers are short but crisp, informative but to the point, and impressive but concise. 6) Being Early Is On Time And Being On Time Is Late © Unsplash Punctuality is often considered to be the most sought after (and essential) attribute that employers look for in prospective employees. And one of the best ways of showing how punctual you can be is during the interview stage itself. Remember, being early is akin to being on time, and being on time is akin to being late. So make sure you reach the place of your interview 10-15 minutes in advance and you'll be off to a great start. And needless to say, being late is absolutely unacceptable and a complete deal-breaker.

  8. . Destruction Happens At The Gym. Construction Happens In Bed & In The Kitchen Working out is really just the first step in the process of getting leaner, stronger or faster. When you exercise, you signal your heart, muscles and metabolism that you need to change. In order to rebuild, repair and burn fat, you have to provide the right nutrients as well. Without good nutrition and sufficient sleep, you won't be able to recover from the training sessions. If you can't recover, you won't be prepared for your next training session and your body won't change as you're hoping for it to. · Hydration Water makes up to 65% to 70% of our total body weight. This means that water plays a big role in boosting and maintaining the intensity of our workout. Hydrating your body holds much importance beyond just enhancing your aesthetics and managing your weight. In the absence of enough water, cells start shrinking. In turn, the body muscles go stiffer and wear out. So, drink a lot of water to keep your muscles relaxed. If you don't drink enough water, you could get yourself into some medical complications, as higher the workout intensity more the requirement of water in the body. © Thinstock · You Know Your Body Best Listen to your body. Stay away from the gym when you're sick or feeling very fatigued. Cut back if you cannot finish an exercise session due to weakness. Run today, fight tomorrow is a saying that applies right on to gym work ethic. Don't fall for that shit those social media people preach about going to the gym with a fever or benching heavy weights with an injured shoulder. After all, fitness should add quality to your life, not send you to the hospital. · Don't Be A Weekend Warrior Be regular. There are tons of benefits exercise adds to your everyday life. Right from feeling stronger, being more attentive, staying energized and enhanced cognitive abilities, regular weight training also helps you age slower and look better. Be at it, when you at it. Do not look for excuses! © Pixabay · Know Your Goal As mentioned earlier, be very true and honest about your purpose of working out. This will put everything in line for you. Stay consistent to those goals and take action based on what you plan on doing. Ask yourself before you plan on doing a 1 rep max or pushing yourself onto something you are not sure about. If you're at the gym just to burn off some calories, sweat it out and let off some steam, then going all out may not be best for you. · Form & Technique Pay attention to your form and technique while you lift. There's no sense in increasing your workload and intensity at the cost of compromised form and technique. Half reps are no reps and do not serve any functional purpose. Similarly, poor posture while attempting heavier loads is not advisable either. Helius is one of Mumbai's most promising fitness professionals and part time kettle bell lecturer.

  11. 'The MCU has a CGI problem' and 'why is Marvel overusing CGI?' – this is something I've come across online a few times and I totally agree. Yes, why doesn't Marvel just build huge spaceships and just make new planets to shoot their movies? Why do they use CGI when it's so easy to spend millions of dollars to make sets and destroy them? And surely, they can easily get actors to play different characters? Stop taking roles away from talking trees and raccoons, Marvel. Okay, keeping all the sarcasm aside, Marvel relies on CGI for obvious reasons. While we love all the cool effects and everything in the movies, seeing some of the characters without any CGI probably has the potential to ruin anyone's day. It's so expected and unexpected at the same time and not to mention, hilarious. But, before that, everyone needs to watch this on loop. Hollywood jumps without CGI Okay, not that we've see Benedict Cumberbatch's awkward jump, let's come back to the characters with CGI. I think this is the most common picture. I can't believe Chris Hemsworth managed to keep a straight face while shooting this, now this is called real talent. © Marvel The secret behind Rocket Raccoon. © Marvel Ultron, for real. © Marvel 'Am I Groot?' © Marvel It gets weirder the longer you look at it. © Marvel I just feel uncomfortable looking at this. © Marvel No suit. © Marvel It's not really a portal?

  13. The #MeToo uproar has shaken the country over the past two weeks with a deluge of accounts of sexual harassment and misconduct pouring in from all over the country. This has helped to unify survivors and women in general, to open up about the ways in which they have been harassed by men. However, it has left quite a few men feeling stranded and unsure about the possibilities of when and in how many ways they could go wrong with their actions and interactions with women. Innumerable accounts narrating various levels of discomfort women have experienced have surfaced, pushing some men to reconsider even their “friendly moves”. © Unsplash Whether causing that discomfort is intentional or unintentional is a question that takes a backseat in this regard, and at this moment of the uprising. Hence, to put all the “confusions” and “assumptions” to rest, we have compiled a list of all the laws laid down in the Indian Penal Code for sexual harassment, so you know what you can get penalised for by the law. 1. Section S. 354 A Sexual harassment is defined as a man committing any of the following acts: (i) physical contact and advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures; or (ii) a demand or request for sexual favours; or (iii) showing pornography against the will of a woman; or (iv) making sexually coloured remarks What It Means: In very simple terms, what it means is that don't indulge in any actions or interactions that are sexual in nature without the consent of a woman. Take her discomfort, protests and “NO” very, very seriously. Committing the first three offences may land you in jail for a period extending up to 3 years, or get you fined, or both. On the other hand, the last offence would get you a jail term of up to 1 year, or fine, or both. © Next Gen Films 2. Section 354 Assault or criminal force to a woman with intent to outrage her modesty.—Whoever assaults or uses criminal force to any woman, intending to outrage or knowing it to be likely that he will thereby outrage her modesty, shall be punished with impris­onment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both. What It Means: Anybody who assaults or uses criminal force against a woman with an intention to dishonour her modesty shall be punished with imprisonment spanning up to two years, or shall be fined, or both. © Viacom 18 3. Section 354 B Assault or use of criminal force to a woman with intent to disrobe. - Any man who assaults or uses criminal force to any woman or abets such act with the intention of disrobing or compelling her to be naked, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than three years but which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine. What It Means: Any man who assaults or uses criminal force against a woman with an intention to disrobe her can be punished by law. The minimum punishment is up to 3 years, which can extend up to 7 years or an imposition of fine or both. 4. Section 354 C Any man who watches, or captures the image of a woman engaging in a private act in circumstances where she would usually have the expectation of not being observed either by the perpetrator or by any other person at the behest of the perpetrator or disseminates such image shall be punished on first conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than one year, but which may extend to three years, and shall also be liable to fine, and be punished on a second or subsequent conviction, with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than three years, but which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine. What It Means: Any man who violates a woman's privacy by engaging in the act of voyeurism, that is, by watching or capturing her images in her intimate or private moments, when she is not expecting an audience. The offence comprises of a punishment of 1-3 years of imprisonment and a fine. However, a repeated conviction will land you in jail for a minimum of 3 years and payment of a fine. © Colour Yellow Productions 5. Section 345 D (1) Any man who— (i) follows a woman and contacts, or attempts to contact such woman to foster personal interaction repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman; or (ii) monitors the use by a woman of the internet, email or any other form of electronic communication, commits the offence of stalking. (2) Whoever commits the offence of stalking shall be punished on first conviction with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years, and shall also be liable to fine; and be punished on a second or subsequent conviction, with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to five years, and shall also be liable to fine. What It Means: You don't stalk any woman, under any circumstances. Period. Unless, of course, it's to do with matters of law and you are following State orders. The first conviction will land you in jail for up to 3 years and make you liable to pay a fine, while a repeated offence can land you in jail for up to 5 years, and make you liable to pay a fine. © Dharma Productions 6. The Sexual Harassment at The Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013: Under the Act, sexual harassment includes: a) Physical contact and advances. (You can't touch someone inappropriately, at any time, or for any reason) b) A demand or request for sexual favours. (Need we say more?) c) Making sexually coloured remarks. (Never make those sexist jokes) d) Showing pornography (You know that's wrong by default) e) Any other unwelcome physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature. (No unwelcome hugs, physically touching someone that makes them uncomfortable. Also, no talking with sexual overtures.) Under the Act, the below five also count as sexual harassment: a) Implied or explicit promise of preferential treatment in her employment. (If you're guilty, change your ways already.) b) Implied or explicit threat of detrimental treatment in her employment (Threats can land you in jail too.) c) Implied or explicit threat about her present or future employment status. (Like we said.) d) Interference with her work or creating an intimidating or offensive work environment for her. (Goes without saying, nobody wants to work in such an atmosphere.) e) Humiliating treatment likely to affect her health or safety. (We rest our case.) So, these are some of the basic laws you must be aware of regarding sexual harassment, and now you know that you must watch your moves at all times.
  14. Unlike your run-of-the-mill sprint, a marathon is a going to be a lot more challenging, physically draining and mentally exhausting. It will require a lot of time and effort on your end, and will also make you rely on a wider and diverse set of skills. As such, any help you get should be welcome - especially if we keep in mind just how difficult finishing a marathon can be. Well, we at MensXP understand that, and we've come up with a few tips that are going to be beneficial to all types of runners who might be prepping for their next (or first!) marathon. So, whether you're a beginner or expert alike, here's your foolproof guide for running a marathon that'll not only help you finish it, but will also increase your chances of coming first. 1) Increase Your Stamina © Unsplash Of all the skills you harbour, the amount of stamina you posses is going to be that one skill that'll be most tested when you'll be running a marathon. So needless to say, increasing your stamina should be pretty high on your priority, as that's basically the first step in ensuring that you finish (and possibly in the first place!) your marathon. Speaking of which... 2) Start Going On Quick Runs & Short Sprints © Pexels While going on quick runs and short sprints won't necessarily prep you for a marathon (after all, a marathon is a different beast altogether), it will help you increase your stamina and as mentioned above, that is the one skill you need to be honing in order to prep yourself for running a marathon. Initially, you can go on just a couple of such runs in a week, but it's advisable to gradually scale up that number. 3) Get The Right Pair Of Marathon Running Shoes © Unsplash You might believe that wearing any pair of marathon running shoes will do the trick, but that's actually a rookie mistake to make. In reality, the running shoes you invest in can actually end up being the kingmaker (if you choose them wisely!) or the deal breaker (if you go for a substandard option) vis-a-vis your chances of winning your marathon. Pro tip: While being a brand brat isn't exactly something that we recommend, when it comes to running shoes, opting for premium and reputable brands can actually become a matter of safety and avoiding potential injuries. 4) Make Sure You Stay Hydrated © Pexels You may not know if you're going to come first or last in your marathon, but the one thing you can absolutely be certain of is this - you'll be sweating buckets! So with all that water leaving your body, your chances of getting dehydrated shoot up. As such, you need to ensure that you stay hydrated. So stocking up on enough water bottles, energy drinks and hydration pouches is highly advisable. 5) Get Your Body In Shape © Pexels No, you don't need to have six-pack abs or the biggest biceps in the gym, but you do need to get in shape. After all, the fitter you are (and the better your Body Mass Index is) the easier it will be for your body to sustain itself during the duration of an entire marathon, no matter how long or challenging the marathon may be. 6) Scout The Path You'll Be Running On © Unsplash This one should pretty much be a no-brainer. The path you'll be running on needs to be scouted and vetted by you before you run your marathon. For instance, you need to ask yourself the following questions? How long is the marathon going to be? What kind of terrain will it cover? Are there any potential safety risks that you might encounter? Conducting the proper research can, more often than not, make all the difference.
  15. Quite often, the best things out there tend to be the ones that happen to be undiscovered. And as is the case with many things in India, finding the best treks too requires a hefty amount of research, as well as the willingness to visit unexplored places.

Fortunately for you, we've already done the heavy lifting and have compiled a list of the best treks in India that are guaranteed to leave you awestruck and mesmerized by the time you finish them.

Fair warning though, this is a very hard trek, so make sure you're carrying the proper equipment - the right clothes, trail running shoes, hydration packs - before you go for it. Best Time To Visit: March to June Difficulty Level: Hard Days Needed: 2 5) Singalila Kanchenjunga Trek © StaticFlickr If you harbour an insane love for mountains, the Singalila Kanchenjunga trek is perfect for you.

The trek itself mostly comprises of a narrow path along the borders of Sikkim and Nepal, making it one of the most thrilling and adrenaline rushing treks you could possibly take part it. Best Time To Visit: March to May, September to October Difficulty Level: Moderate to Hard Days Needed: 20 6) Gangotri Gomukh Trek © Wikimedia It is said that the Gangotri glacier is where River Ganga is at its most pure and pristine. So needless to say, a trek that'll bring you so close to the origin of River Ganga, all the while taking you into the Garhwal mountains of Uttarakhand, shouldn't be missed. This moderately challenging trek is truly a wonder, as it'll make you come in contact with a rich diversity of India's fauna and flora (including rare mountain goats), as well as the huge meadows of Tapovan. Best Time To Visit: May to June, August to October Difficulty Level: Moderate Days Needed: 12

  17. The fitness industry, and in particular, the supplement industry is growing rapidly. As per the statistics, the supplement industry was worth $32 billion in 2012 and is expected to become worth $60 billion by 2021. That is almost a 100% growth in less than 10 years time. Every time you visit a fitness expo, 10 new companies pop up selling protein supplements and claim to be better than the others. It's a melee of supplement companies out there. The Protein Spiking Scam Most consumers do not know that some companies run a little scam known as 'amino/protein spiking' where they dump cheap ingredients into their powders to pass tests and claim a higher protein content than they truly have. © Thinkstock Images In this piece, I shall give you information on how the companies do this and how you, as a consumer, can look out for it and not fall prey to these scams. With the growing education and information that whey protein is not just for bodybuilders, and that it can be used by anyone looking to get a convenient source of protein in their diets, the demand for the same has gone up. A lot of companies saw this opportunity and started to lure consumers with a fishnet called 'low price.' That's right, the companies fool you with what is in the supplement and on the promise of saving money, sell questionable stuff to you. This Scam Is Run By Spiking Protein. How Is It Done? © Thinkstock Images The 'amino/protein spiking' is done by adding cheap amino acids like glycine and taurine into the protein powders or non-proteinogenic (protein building) amino acids such as creatine and beta-alanine into the mix. They then get lab reports for nitrogen content of the protein powder and not that of the individual amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. By these results, every amino acid (protein building or not) gets counted as protein but not all amino acids help you build muscle protein. THAT IS THE SCAM! Let's take an example: you are shopping for protein powder and the label on the front of the package reads '25 grams protein per serving with 5 grams creatine and 5 grams beta-alanine' but the individual amino acid profile is not listed behind the package. What you read it as - This supplement has 25 grams protein per scoop. What it may mean - This supplement has 25 grams - 5 grams of beta-alanine - 5 grams of creatine - 15 grams protein per scoop. If the individual amino acids are not listed on the package, there is no sure way to know. Coming to the solution of the problem here, how do you make an educated guess about the quality of the supplement before giving away your money? This 3-Step Guide Will Help You: Step 1: Look At The Ingredient Label & For The Leucine Content If the ingredient label at the back of the package says 'proprietary blend' without giving a breakdown of what are the ingredients in that blend, chances are that the manufacturer is dumping some cheap amino acids into the mix and hiding it from you. Step 2: If There Is Leucine Listed There, How Much Is It? Leucine is an amino acid that kick-starts the muscle protein synthesis in your body. Approximately 10% of the protein serving should be leucine. If a whey protein has 25 grams of protein per serving, 2.5 grams or more should come from leucine. If it falls short at this, do not buy the product. Another step here is to check how much of the protein serving is taken up by the BCAA profile. BCAA's are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. We already know now that the product we are looking at should have all the individual amino acids listed in their individual quantities at the back of the label. The BCAA should account for 20 to 25% of the total protein per serving. So, in the same example of 25 grams protein per scoop, the BCAA profile should add up to 5 to 7.5 grams minimum. © Thinkstock Images Step 3: Compare It With The Average Per Serving Price Of The Products In The Market Whey is sold by hundreds of manufacturers online, which is the best place you can look it up. On an average, the cost per scoop of a supplement that has 25 grams protein per serving is anywhere between 60 to 80 rupees. One kilo of whey usually has 30 servings, thus putting the cost of one-kilo packaging between Rupees 1800 to 2400. If you see that the cost of the product you are purchasing is way off this territory and unless there is some offer or a sale going on, it may be a better choice to steer clear of that brand. I hope this article makes selecting a whey protein supplement an easier task for you and keeps you safe from the scams run by a few manufacturers.

  18. For those of you who freeze at the thought of bungee jumping or river rafting, a rather safe way to feel the same thrill can be colouring your hair. You can come out looking like a stylish new person, or it can end disastrously - who knows? Therein lies the adventure, doesn't it? However, few things can match the pain of stepping out in public with an unflattering hair colour and the comments it brings forth - unless you have a thick skin and an elastic heart, that is not prone to vanity-inflicted injury. Here, we have compiled a list of 7 things you should never do, when it comes to colouring your hair: 1. If you're going to experiment with a weird hairstyle, please don't make it look appalling and all the more conspicuous by colouring it with a shocking blonde colour. If SRK can't pull it off, neither can you. © Twitter 2. Bangs are anyway not fashion-forward when it comes to men's hairstyles, please don't make them look worse by getting blonde highlights. They just look bad and need to go. © Twitter 3. Unless you're role-playing as a parrot or are all set to walk the runway for an avant-garde show, please avoid fluoro blues and greens. They are extremely tricky to pull off, and you need to be absolutely sure about the aesthetic when you take the plunge. Plus, pairing outfits with them can be a challenge. © Twitter 4. Always avoid going for a shade that is almost the same colour as your skin tone. Our hair frames our face, so the contrast helps. Also, going for an unflattering yellowish blonde colour will almost never work on a brown skin tone. © Twitter 5. Please don't go for metallic, shiny shades that are also super vibrant. They don't suit anyone and are just plain tacky. © Twitter 6. Spiked highlights need to go off the face of the earth. They just have this inexplicable wannabe, douchey vibe, that just can't be salvaged with the best of outfits. © Twitter 7. Remember the style where you were made to wear a cap with holes, and clumps of hair were pulled out through those holes and were coloured in a shocking shade - usually blonde or the ugliest shade of burgundy? Please don't go for that, for your own sake. If there is a definitive hairstyle that doesn't suit anyone on this planet, it's that one. © Twitter
  19. The bodybuilding scene has come a long way in India. What were once small rooms crammed with old-school equipment and shady lighting, are now multistoried world-class bodybuilding training facilities. Everything right from the flooring, machinery, ventilation and maintenance has changed. But guess what hasn't; the attitude of bodybuilding men towards the women in the gym. It is a problem that still infests even the best of the gyms. It still prevails. Women still get passively harassed and it's about time to stop it. © eletmex You Can Take A Desi-Bodybuilder Out Of A Desi-Gym, But Can't Take The 'Desi' Out Of The Bodybuilder Now the problem here is very terminal. Bodybuilding gyms in India have been for decades looked at as a place for hardcore men only. Pour in unintelligent steroid usage and what you have is a testosterone blazing cock-fest, ready to tear at the machines and sadly, the women. The thought process that 'weight training is only for men' is simply cancerous and some men, usually the 'uneducated in fitness' lot, carry this false baggage of fake masculinity. First of; just because you got huge by mindlessly using anabolic steroids, it doesn't make you an authority on weight training. Secondly, when you are huge, don't just immediately become a jerk to women and intimidate them. She'll Ask For A Spot IF She NEEDS One. Stop Looking For Opportunities To Inappropriately Touch Women. © Stack Spotting- Helping a person physically on an exercise. Countless times I have seen desi-gym trainers pointlessly spotting women clients on exercises. If you look closely, most of the times the client hasn't even asked for a spot and the intentions of the trainer are just to touch the client. Then they immediately go up to their fellow trainers and make a joke about it. Listen, if she needs a spot, she will ask for it. In fact, they are actually better off without your help. Stop F**cking Ogling! Sorry, no telling you softly here. Just stop making women conscious while they exercise. Because of this stupidity, a lot of women stop doing certain exercises and eventually, quit the gym. © Pixabay Don't ogle at her while she squats. Don't sit in a corner, with an excuse of resting and stare at her like a hungry owl. Let her do what she wants and do what you are there for. Very simple but still not understood! Stop Sneaking Out Her Number From The In & Out Logbook A lot of gyms have this old-school register where people check-in everyday with their names, time-in and phone numbers. Now some desperate clients, who are, of course, friends with the same kind of desperate trainers start sneaking out phone numbers. This cascades into creepy messages and blank calls. If this isn't stooping down to absolute low levels of shameless, I don't know what is.
  20. In 2018, protein shakes are just as much staple to a workout routine as chest day on Monday. This protein shake frenzy has led to the concoction of unscientific bro-myths around the time of its consumption. Probably one of the biggest questions, 'what is the best time to consume it', still remains unanswered and misunderstood. Plus the age-old myth of the 'anabolic window' makes things furthermore complicated. Here, let me chop it up for you and tell you why it's NOT important to drink your shake right after your workout finishes. What Is The Post Workout Anabolic Window And Does It Even Exist? © Pixabay The post-workout anabolic window is basically the 30-45 minute time cap following the end of your workout. The old school myth is that to build maximum muscle, you must gulp your protein shake within this window. Fast forward to 2018, this notion has been challenged by various studies. A 2013 meta-analysis (1) established the fact that it is not the timing of protein that's given immediately after the workout that's important but the overall consumption of protein in a day. In this meta-analysis, various studies were included which showed a positive correlation between muscle hypertrophy and post-workout anabolic window. However, the conclusion was drawn that the overall consumption of protein in a day was a bigger factor than just the post workout protein consumption. Thus, the post-workout anabolic window, even if it does exist, isn't as short as a few minutes. Take It Easy, Focus On Your Daily Protein Intake © Pixabay Don't be in any type of rush to drink your protein shake. Instead, be a wise lifter and focus on your daily protein intake. How much protein you consume in a day, will help you build the muscle mass you want and of course, help you recover. References:- 1.

  21. Women are said to be mysterious. Even though we can't be too sure about that claim, what we can surely tell you is that they don't seem to give it all away, even after months of knowing them. So, you expect that perhaps things will change once you get into a relationship with her and by getting to know her better, you'd be able to unravel all the mysteries she withholds in her smirks and subtle shaking of the head every now and then. But as you may know by now, that is not to be. © Dharma Productions You've tried to figure her out for long, and seem to have managed a great deal in trying to play along, as you steadily undo her little secrets. But the thing is, even when you feel you have her all figured out, she will still keep a few things to herself, simply because she wants to or feels that you don't need to know it all. But like always, we're here to save the day for you, because we have managed to get hold of a few secrets that every girlfriend keeps from her guy, for reasons unknown. But once you read them through, you'll kinda get an idea why that is so. 1. She Has Stalked Your Exes More Than Just Once No matter how much you want her to confess to it, she'll never agree that she has stalked and dissected your ex-girlfriend's social media accounts on more than one occasion. She knows more than you give her credit for, or let her know about. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment 2. Some Comparisons With Her Ex Do Pop-Up Every Once In A While Well, that's a bummer honestly. No guy wants his girl to be even thinking about her ex, let alone have the two of you be compared to each other. But before you get all dejected, you should know that it's rare, and the comparisons only pop up as gentle reminders of the jackpot she hit with you. 3. She Fantasised About Being With You Much Before It Even Happened You know they'll never tell you about this, but isn't it obvious why not? Just know that it's true(for most of them) and revel in those moments of satisfaction. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment 4. When She Says She's Ready, It Means In The Next 19 Minutes Will the guy who hasn't experienced this yet, please stand up? Most women wield this trick and well it kinda works, most of the time, to subconsciously believe they'd be here just any moment, which in turn helps in waiting “a little bit” longer. 5. She Frequently Checks Her Phone To See If You've Called/Texted It isn't something you didn't expect, is it? We have all been there, even done that a couple of times ourselves after sending a killer text. But who knew women do it regardless of any such situations, to simply see if their man is thinking of them, maybe? © Dharma Productions 6. She's Constantly Testing You When You Guys Are Just Starting Out Yes, mate. That happens too. You'll have to pass a number of tests before she allows herself to fall head over heels for you. But sorry to say that we don't know what they would be judging you on. Comment below if you would want us to dig deeper on this one. 7. She Appreciates It When You Tell Her You Like Her Company A girl needs her dose of attention every once in a while, and that doesn't have to be at loggerheads with her independent, self-reliant ideals. So, maybe do that occasionally and you'll see how positively that works in your favour. © Red Chillies Entertainment 8. A Little Jealousy Is Appreciated And we'd like to stress on it again, a little jealousy. Which means don't act all IDGAF when you see her excessively drooling over a guy or when she is receiving a lot of attention from a certain guy. Moderation is key here. 9. Some Fights Are Merely To Get Your Attention At least now you know why they pull out the guns every once in a while for no reason at all. Glad to have gotten this one, aren't you? Do you have the nerve to run these through with your girl?
  22. We all grew up watching 'FRIENDS' and it never gets old. Every time you're in a dilemma about what to watch, or you just want to watch something while having dinner, or you simply need to zone out for some time, 'FRIENDS' is the answer. You can just start watching any random episode and it would never disappoint. Some of us have watched it so many times, that we can remember every single line from the show. But still, there are certain facts about the series which might still be unknown to you. Here are 10 interesting facts about the iconic show, that may come as a surprise to you: 1. Four Six © Warner Bros The main cast of 6 was initially meant to be of 4. In the early stages, Chandler & Phoebe were supposed to be just the supporting cast. Whatever the reason was to include these two in the main cast, we're glad it happened! 2. The Unfair Emmy Courteney Cox, aka Monica, was the only regular cast member who didn't get nominated for an Emmy. This was as bizarre as Joey-Rachel's relationship! 3. The 'Scientist Guy' Joey Hank Azaria, the guy who played the role of Phoebe's scientist boyfriend David, tried twice for the role of Joey. Thankfully, the casting team had a better taste and they chose Matt LeBlanc instead. 4. The Theme Song How many of you clap your hands along with the theme song? Initially, the theme song selected for the show was “Shiny Happy People” by REM. The show was named 'Friends Like Us' back then but eventually, it became F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and we got a new theme song with it. 5. The Gay Chandler Writers initially thought to make Chandler gay. In fact, when Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox read the script for the first time, they thought Chandler was gay. They even admitted thinking Chandler was gay on the show. 6. The Blunder Ellen DeGeneres turned down the role of Phoebe. Can you imagine? 7. Ross's Monkey © Warner Bros Marcel, the monkey, was actually played by two monkeys named Katie and Monkey. 8. Courteney Cox As Rachel? Producers offered Courteney the role of Rachel. But Courteney thought she was better suited for Monica, as she could easily relate to the character. 9. David Schwimmer, The Man! David Schwimmer was the first to be cast in the show. In fact, writers wrote the role of Ross keeping David in mind. Talk about popularity, eh? 10. Ross and Rachel WERE off the table The see-sawing romance of Ross & Rachel wasn't supposed to be the centre of the show. However, seeing their on-screen chemistry and the love of the audience for the couple, the show was developed in such a way, that their relationship was often under the spotlight. And that's how we got the iconic 'I got off the plane' dialogue! So, which one of these came as the biggest surprise for you? Was it Chandler originally being a gay character, or Courteney Cox being offered the role of Rachel? Let us know in the comment section.
  23. The one thing every teenager looks forward to around the halfway mark of his teenage years, is to ditch his teens and step into the formal years of early adulthood. Though 18 may be the official year of turning into an adult, the Indian society doesn't really consider you one until your age reads/sounds something like “twenty-_____”. Right? Well, we know the big deal that it is for all of us, given that there is so much to look forward to, explore and experience in our 20s. However, with all the fun and liberty, also comes the sad reality of facing the demons, both our own and as well as the society's. © Dharma Productions Societal expectations and demands slowly begin to make their way into our “happy” 20s, and more often than not, meddle with our personal choices and desires. The conflict forces most of us to “challenge” the usual order of things, which eventually results in various forms of stress, which slowly creep into our lives. Now, who wants to deal with such heavy, mind-numbing experiences that test our mental and emotional vigour at a time like this, especially when they have a choice to stay above all the jitters and enjoy the mental peace that's become the need of the hour? © Facebook So, here are 7 mental muscle building mantras that will help you deal with any and every societal melodrama, and keep you mentally healthy and sound: 1. Don't Seek Validation The first thing to learn very early on in your 20s is to not waste one's effort and energy in trying to please everyone. The world is made up of numerous different individuals, so disagreements are expected. But instead of seeking people's validation, let's focus on being our own man, and doing what is best, regardless of public opinion. © Facebook 2. Don't Wait For An Apology Life has only just started and various disagreements will leave a lot of people, including you, with bruised egos and hurt pride. But no matter which side of the spectrum you occupy, you should quickly learn the trick to forget and move forward. There's no point holding on to the hurt and preventing yourself from enjoying the moment and being truly happy. 3. Have Fun Big, strong mental muscles find their nutrition from all things positive and happy. What that means is, you need to move over negative emotions, and fast. Don't let things like opinions, judgements, failures, jealousy and resentment dampen your joy and kill your vibe. You do what makes you truly happy and chuck all else into the bin. © Facebook 4. Allow Yourself To Fail That's something which must be repeated often, loud and clear for all of us to understand and acknowledge that failure is okay, as it is normal. We must understand that failures don't define us as a person, but rather we must learn from them, take them in our stride and put up a stronger game post every setback. 5. Don't Mull Over Mistakes This one follows the same logic as the previous one. Renowned English poet Alexander Pope's notable words, “to err is human” is a mantra you must imbibe in your very being. We all make mistakes and learn through those experiences, and the 20s allow us to make more mistakes in our lives, than all the other times combined. Thus, be done with all the greyness clouding your mind. © Facebook 6. Learn To Say No This one might seem insignificant, but know that learning to say no takes effort on most of our parts. But being able to say no to things shows that you value yourself, your time, decisions, choices, and the needs to turn down certain offers every now and then, that don't resonate with your personal ideologies and beliefs. That'll really bulk of mental muscles. 7. Appreciate Change Last, but surely not the least, your 20s will be filled with constant changes and you must come to accept and appreciate those changes. That's because those will be the only way you learn and grow as individuals, who grab every opportunity thrown their way and make the most of it. No matter where you are in your 20s, keeping these mantras with you will really help you build a strong and healthy mind, that's ready to take on life.
