WORK YOUR WHEELS!

theres nothing more disappointing to me than to see a fuckin hot dude with no lower body to speak of. a flat ass and skinny legs while being all muscled up top makes a fucker look like a golf ball tee. a guy with a HOT bubble butt and thick and meaty legs turn my head every time. try this to start bulkin up your lower body.

LET PRESS

start: sit squarely against the pad with a hip-width stance on the platform, toes pointed straight ahead, keep you head aligned with your body, not crooked forward.

execution: control the descent of the weight as your knees track toward your shoulders. dont let them buckle inward or outward. try to reach a 90-degree bend in your knees, but stop short of allowing your lower back and glutes to curl up off the pad. smoothly reverse direction, pressing through your heels back to the top, but dont lock your out your knees.

tip: keep the movement consistent all the way through. control the negative motion, dont let the platform just drop. and, use a strong motion on the positive, being careful not to use too much of an explosive a speed.

LYING LEG CURLS
start: secure your hips flat on the platform, gripping the sides for stability, with your knees just off the edge of the pad. avoid pulling hard through your hands so you dont gain leverage on the movement that might detract from the work being done by the hamstrings.

execution: in a strong but controlled motion, contract your hamstrings to curl the lever toward your butt, bringing it up as high as you can without lifting your butt from the platform. squeeze at the point of peaking contraction before slowly lowering to the start, but dont allow the weight stack to touch down between reps.

tip: this is the only exercise where you may do down to 12 reps on the last couple of sets, bu thats very rare. almost always, its in the 20 to 50 range.

LEG EXTENSIONS
start: sit squarely in the apparatus with your feet hip width apart and pointed straight ahead. the edge of the seat should be secured against the back of your knee joints. brace yourself by grabbing the sides of the seat.

execution: contracting your quads, straighten your legs to full extension, holding the peak contracted position at the top for a count and slowly lowering to take advantage of the negative resistance on the descent.

tip: dont lean your body backward as you lift. thats using body leverage and it removes stress from your quad muscles. for this move, high reps are great.

SEATED CALF RAISES
start: the bent knee position puts the gastrocnemius on stretch so only the soleus is targeted here. place the balls of your feet on the footplate, with the thigh pad just behind your knees, so all stress is directly on top of your lower leg.

execution: flex your calves through a full range of motion using slow burn reps, holding the peak contraction for a count of 1 to 2 seconds at the top. release to fully stretch the calf and reverse direction without bouncing.

tip: be careful of using burn rep bounces at the end o fa set because they can tear your achilles tendon. use smooth, full range of motion for 20 to 30 reps.

MY PIPES ARE STILL CLEAN!

today i hung out with adam russo running errands, talkin shop and having lunch at 24 kitchen. it was one of those rare occasions when we both had some free time to just catch up and be guys out and about. although its on the chilly side here in LA, the sun is out and it feels amazing to walk in it.

one of the errands we had to run was for adam to get his new HIV/STD test for an upcoming shoot. so we headed over to Out of the Closet on Sunset Blvd.. its the new requirement in the industry. no tests may be more than 30 days old or somewhere around that time frame. which, i feel, is a good policy. not only for work purposes, but for one's own knowledge... you should know your status.

so, since i was there and we had time to kill and shop the racks, i decided to get one too. the last one i did was back in february in NYC at GMHC just before i did my shoots with Suite 703, Out In Public and Men Over 30. it feels amazing to say that at 40-something... my pipes are STILL clean!

ps... if you need to get yourself tested, you can at Out of the Closet... for free. they ask for a $20 donation at the end of your session. if you can't do $20, give whatever you can. as a community, together we must work together to support valuable services such as this.

MEN'S BIGGEST HEALTH DANGER...

almost 75 million americans have a potentially life threatening disease and 28% dont know it. a study conducted by the national heart, lung and blood institute reveals high blood pressure in the US has reached an all time high. they call it the silent killer because there are usually no symptoms, so by the time patients find out they have high blood pressure (140/90) they've already got heart disease, stroke, vision or kidney problems, or, for men, erectile dysfunction. some lifestyle changes that can help prevent or even reverse hypertension include weight loss, reduced sodium intake, increased potassium intake, consuming less fat and sugar, and eating a much healthier, clean diet.

Today's Full Moon in your 7th House of Others is a reflection of the Great Paradox for you thin-skinned Fish. You must exist as part of a greater whole, since the school is more important than any one fish. However, you are also required to stand up for yourself by expressing your individuality.

A recent decision probably sent a message to others that you truly meant business. Now it's time to solidify what you already began. You might need to change directions, yet it's not wise to tell others what you're thinking today. Instead of saying what's on your mind, it may be smarter to withhold your intentions. Make the most of your power by conserving it until you are fully ready to take action. ~TWITTASCOPE~

The picky Virgo Moon enters your 7th House of Partners today, helping you compile a list of the flaws of your spouse, lover or closest friend. But you may be so critical that no one could possibly meet all your standards. Be gentle when evaluating others, since the issue isn't really about them at all. It's about your feelings and how you judge yourself. Keep in mind that the harsh criteria you are now using may be more of a hindrance than a help. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. ~TWITTASCOPE~

Your mind races along and your words cannot keep up with your outrageous ideas. You want to connect with others in a very real way, but it's hard to fit everything into a simple sentence.

MUSCLE MEAL MONDAYS ~ HOMEMADE BEEF JERKY

this recipe makes 20 servings

ingredients:
3 pounds flank steak
½ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp liquid smoke
3 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
3 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp onion powder

directions: remove all fat from beef. cut beef into very thin slices (¼ inch or less) by slicing against the grain. (fora tougher, chewier jerky, slice with the grain, opposite the butcher's normal recommendations). meat will be easier to cut into thin slices when it is partially frozen

combine all ingredients in a covered dish and marinate overnight in refrigerator. after marinating, preheat oven to 150 degrees and place a cookie sheet lined with paper towels on the bottom rack. insert toothpicks into the ends of the beef strips and hang them from the top rack. keep the oven door cracked slightly open so water vapor can escape. cook for six to eight hours.

modifications: for spice jerky, add three or four teaspoons or red pepper flanks to the marinade. for teriyaki jerky, use reduced-sodium teriyaki marinade instead fo soy sauce. add a quarter cup of brown sugar or brown sugar replacement to marinade.

totals per serving:
113 calories
19 g protein
1 g carbs
3.5 g fat
0 g fiber

did you know... to save money, you can wait to make this recipe until you find a large cut of flank steak, london broil or top round on sale. it never hurts to ask the butcher if he's about to mark down any meats.

Your sweet and tender heart encourages you to help others less fortunate today, but you are also required to respond in a more contained manner.

Avoiding extremes can be a difficult task unless you have someone in your life that you trust enough to use as a sounding board.

FUELING UP...

plan your meals in advance to fuel your body before, during and after exercise for better endurance and recovery from training. snack on whol foods whenever possible, but if you need a quick refueling during a long workout, energy gels or bars could do the trick. your body requires water and carbs before exercise and then carbs and protein after the workout to help with recovery. when you dont have much time after training, chocolate milk or yogurt will help with muscle repair.
