Kill the Pill

Don't pop a pill after you work out. Researchers at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences found that ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and acetaminophen (Tylenol) were no more effective than a placebo in relieving post exercise muscle soreness. More important, they say the drugs may actually suppress muscle growth when taken after a workout. Drink your water and take time to stretch those sore muscles.

Keep Your Stats, See Amazing Results

Test yourself often. Every 4 weeks, measure a variable—waist size, body fat, bench press—that equates to your end goal. It'll show you the tangible results of your training. And that translates into motivation.

Turn Heads with Your Legs

Do standing and seated calf raises. You'll get better results. Your calves are made
up of two different muscles, so you have to do the straight-leg and the bent-leg
versions of the exercise to hit them both.

Cut Pain, Increase Gain

Count your repetitions backward. When you near the end of the set,
you'll think about how many you have left instead of how many you've done.

Overcome Injuries, Build Big Arms

If you hurt your right arm, don't stop exercising your left arm. Researchers at the
University of Oklahoma found that people who trained only one arm for 2 weeks
managed to increase arm strength in their nonexercising arm up to 10 percent.
The reason: Exercising one arm stimulates the muscle nerve fibers in the opposite arm.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND SPARK FRIENDS!
