Scientists Come Up With the Ultimate Workout Playlist Sport Scientists at the Brunel University have teamed up with the music streamer, Spotify, to see if they can help in a small way to help keep those New Year’s resolutions going. There were over 6.7 million workout playlists to create the absolute best soundtrack for your workout. The tracks were analyzed by both their popularity as well as music that is scientifically proven to make you work harder because of their bpm, style, and lyrical content. The soundtrack features Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Macklemore, and Eminiem among others. Business Insider featured the playlist along with the BPM and what sort of exercise is proper for the song. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. There is absolutely nothing better than finding the perfect workout playlist and nothing worse than trying to skip through Pandora to find a good song to run to.
Marilyn Monroe’s Unpublished Poems: The Complex Private Person Behind the Public Persona by Maria Popova “Only parts of us will ever touch only parts of others.” Did you ever begin Ulysses? Did you ever finish it? Marilyn Monroe did both. But her private poetry — fragmentary, poem-like texts scribbled in notebooks and on loose-leaf paper, published for the first time in Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters (public library) — reveals a complex, sensitive being who peered deeply into her own psyche and thought intensely about the world and other people. Only parts of us will ever touch only parts of others – one’s own truth is just that really — one’s own truth. Life – I am of both of your directionsLife Somehow remaining hanging downward the most but strong as a cobweb in the wind — I exist more with the cold glistening frost. Stones on the walk every color there is I stare down at you like these the a horizon – the space / the air is between us beckoning and I am many stories besides up my feet are frightenedfrom my as I grasp for towards you Donating = Loving

Variations In The Bench Press undefined The benchpress may be the most popular and widely used exercise used for developing the chest (Thompson, 1994). But go into any gym today and you will see quite a few different variations being done. There’s the decline, the incline, the flat bench and to make things even more complicated, all of these can be done with dumbbells. Well, this is where we must begin to separate popular ‘gym myths’ from reality. Is this common advice just another fine example of the ‘gym myth’ or is there actually some science to back these anecdotal claims? But wait...before we draw any conclusions, let’s take a quick look at some of the other muscles involved in moving the benchpress. Next we have the deltoids. The last muscle we will take a look at is the latissimus dorsi or the lats. Now what does science have to say about the effectiveness of all of these variations in the benchpress? The Sternocostal Head But what is the best grip to use? The Clavicular Head The Triceps Brachii

Unique home exercise equipment. MostFit SYN Rings and Suspension Strap Training The Energy Systems! Why is your training not producing the same results as sprint type athletes who are probably using similar methods of training. Learn why... Have you ever noticed the ultra-lean, heavily muscled physiques of sprint type athletes (100m runners, running backs, speed skaters) and wondered why your training hasn't produced such a result? After all, you train with weights 3-5x per week to build muscle. And you do a couple of moderate intensity cardio workouts to burn fat. So why don't you look better than these athletes? Well, there are a few answers to these questions. You see, successful athletes are born with great potential for their sport. Although these athletes are born with an advantage, one that allows them to develop muscle and burn fat more easily than most, we can't underestimate the importance of their hard training. The Anaerobic Energy Systems First, let's define our terms. Now, the opposite of "aerobic" is "anaerobic" which, by definition, means "without oxygen". Example Thanks,
