#NopainNogain – Tips for the Gym Workout

Gymming is the toughest route to a well-toned body. We would have seen many bodybuilders or great trainers around the world. Sometimes, I just sit back and imagine “How the hell do they develop their body? I also workout for hours, but I don’t see any improvement on my side!” And that’s when one of my friend, who also comes to the same gym made me realize my mistakes in the gym. Additionally, he also gave me some tips, which I’m going to share it with you guys. Read on to find out.

1. Tone up your treadmill

Tone up your treadmill

Before you jump to the highest number and start running, grab some of the handy exercises to warm up your body. It prepares the body for exercises by gradually increasing the heart rate and circulation. It also loosens the joints and increases blood flow to the muscles. Small stretches, shoulder presses, and extensions can help you in such cases.

2. Intensify your push-ups

Push-ups

I was doing my push-ups wrong the entire gym life, till my friend noticed it. Then my friend showed me something on YouTube where Keli Roberts, a trainer from Los Angeles, advised “From standing position, bend down, put your hands on the floor shoulder-width apart, and jump your feet back into plank position. If you’re strong, cross your ankles, otherwise, jump your feet wide apart. Do a push-up, then jump your feet together or uncross your ankles. Jump your feet back to your hands and stand up. Do eight reps total, rest for one minute, and repeat.”

3. Maximize your crunches

Crunches

Sometimes while doing crunches we tend to relax our abs as we lower our chest away from the knees. However, by doing so we get only half of the benefit. Try sustaining the contraction down to get the best results. It can be difficult at first but yes practice makes a man perfect.

4. Improve your focus

Focus

That doesn’t mean that you have created a diet plan or timetable and start following. This one is different. While performing isolation exercises like curls, overhead triceps extensions, and lateral raises we tend to stand and do them. Next time, try doing them while seated. Sitting will help ensure you aren’t using any momentum to help fuel the movement, like swinging your arms back and forth with each biceps curl. You’ll immediately find that you’re able to focus far more effectively on performing a slow, controlled movement.

5. Concentrate on small things as well

This is the general rule book that many of us fail to follow. Right from clothing to eating habits, each of them has special rules and regulations that we need to follow. The below guide can help you.

6. Keep yourself hydrated

Keep yourself hydrated

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends drinking water during exercise as well as before and after to promote proper hydration and in order to replace water loss through sweating at a similar rate to that at which it is lost.

7. Wear proper breathable clothes

Breathable Clothes

Gym attire is linked to casual attire, but there’s a line. Breathability depends on the type of the fabric that you don. Wear proper breathable clothes as they can help in fanning away your sweat to keep your comfortable.

8. Underwear is also important

Men's Underwear

Your manhood also needs proper breathability and comfort and sweat in the intimate parts can cause chafing. It can make you feel uncomfortable during the exercises. Move beyond the conventional underwear styles and give a try to Bikini’s for men that avoid you from such situations. This men’s underwear also comes in breathable fabrics like mesh that can help to fan away the sweat formed down there.

Above are some of the tips for the fitness freaks. Try them out and experience the little changes that take place in frequent time periods.

6 Basic but impressive etiquette for Men

“Etiquette is behaving yourself a little better than is absolutely important.” ~ Will Cuppy

Chivalry is not dead. The matter of fact is that people these days fail to understand the real meaning of the same. The very word chivalry and machismo are misunderstood by a dominating as well as controlling personality. Having the right set of manners is an essential aspect of having a charming as well as impressive personality. Being a classic man isn’t an easy task as there is a lot of aspect related to it. You can wear the best of the clothes and can still fail in leaving a successful first impression just because your etiquette isn’t strong enough. Here’s a few tips that can help you project your personality in the best light.

Etiquette

Tip 1

Manner is just a sensitive awareness of the feeling of others. Thus, it is important for you to mind your activities and the things you say. Your activity should not hurt the feeling of anyone around. Bullying and making fun of someone doesn’t make you cool. Treat everyone with politeness. Even if the person is being rude, you don’t have to be like him.

Tip 2

The way you speak contributes a lot to your overall personality. The man’s manner will have direct impact on your social and professional life. The first impression is really important and the way you talks as well as communication skills plays a very vital role. Be very clear about what you are saying. See right into the eyes of the person standing next to you. Along with this, a man should be a good listener. Give proper opportunity of talking to the person and carefully listen to everything.

Well Dressed Man

Tip 3

A well-dressed man can effortlessly win the heart of everyone around. To need to be in line with the current trend if you want to put up a class act. Gone are the days when the dressing of a man took the back seat. The modern trend has made it as important for the gentleman as it is for the ladies. Dressing according to the occasion is the first and foremost thing that you need to consider. You just can’t invite compliments in a casual attire at a formal event. Other than this, the way you carry your look is equally tricky. Choose the right set of accessories. Everything from the tie to the shoes should match the cloth. Along with the cloths, the undergarment is equally important. Choose the right pair of men’s underwear according to the event. Take care of the smallest things. For instance, avoid the visible seam line of the undergarment. You can try the seamless style of g-strings for men.

Tip 4

It is not just the attire that is important, but there are other aspect that projects an impressive etiquette of an individual. Any sort of odor can ruin the entire impression of an individual. Thus, wearing the right fragrance of men’s cologne that lasts long is important. Make sure that the perfume is not very strong. Use mouth freshener and things of this sort. Bathe well before your leave home. A gentleman who smells good is definitely a turn on.

Tip 5

As mentioned above, respecting the independence of a woman is a good thing, but that doesn’t mean that you have to forget the basic chivalry. The lady with you can be your wife, girlfriend, mother or just a good friend, pampering her is just a part of the gentlemanly behavior. Open the door of the car and pull the chair for her. This attitude will only be appreciated by everyone around.

Tip 6

No matter what, avoid being a foul mouth. Using curse words is fun when you’re with your friends. However, being harsh with your words is something that men should avoid. Your manner is the mirror of your own personality. There is no chance of projecting an impressive personality with foul mouth.
