Save Your Calves

If you're a runner and your calves feel tight when you wake up
in the morning, try sleeping on your stomach with your feet hanging
off the bed. Gravity will take over, lightly stretching the calf muscles all night.

    I used to habitually sleep on my stomach until I began having back problems. To help ease the stress on my lower back when I sleep on my stomach, I try to put a pillow under my stomach. Now, I have a good reason for sleeping on my stomach when my calves feel tight. Thanks for sharing!!

    I used to love sleeping on my stomach but chiropractor talked me out of it. Now I have a good excuse to do it when my calves need to be stretched! Thanks.

Finish Faster

To save time, use the same weight for your entire workout. Pick the
weight based on your weakest exercise—choose an amount you
can lift only six to eight times—and do the moves in a circuit.

Squeeze Out Gains

Squeeze the bar inward when you bench-press. This works more muscles in
your chest. But squeeze it outward when you do the close-grip version of
the exercise—this hits your triceps harder.

Loosen Your Hips

Keep your heels on the floor when you squat. If you can't, your hip flexors
are too tight. Try this stretch: Hold onto the sides of the squat rack and lower
yourself until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold for 30 seconds.
Return to a standing position, then repeat five times.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!


For a Better Warmup, Train Your Brain

Don't forget to warm up your brain. Preparing your central nervous system for
activity is just as important as preparing your muscles. That's because your
central nervous system tells your muscles when to contract. Try standing on
one leg while you squat down, and touch the floor in front of it with your
opposite hand. Do two sets of 10 to 12 repetitions with each leg.
