    Bodybuilders spend much of their time in the gym “pumping iron,” but dumbbells aren’t the only type of iron that bodybuilders need to get strong. Perhaps that fatigue they may be feeling goes beyond just missing a few hours of sleep or pushing their body to its limits. Iron deficiencies are one of the most common reasons that bodybuilders feel fatigued on a regular basis.   Why Bodybuilders Need Iron Iron is an essential mineral for everyone’s health, but especially for bodybuilders. This important mineral is a structural component of enzymes and proteins that cells need to grow and adapt.   In the human body, iron makes up hemoglobin, which is a protein in red blood cells that’s responsible for taking oxygen to different parts of the body. Once oxygen reaches the tissues, a protein called myoglobin carries it to your muscles. Efficiently using oxygen is a key factor in athletic training and muscle building.   Bodybuilders need their muscles to be performing at 100% for workouts, training sessions, and competitions. Bodybuilding experts recommend that women between the ages of 19 and 50 get 18 milligrams of iron per day and that men in that age range get 8 milligrams per day. Since women lose iron in their monthly menstrual flow each month, female bodybuilders need to especially monitor their iron levels. Also, bodybuilders on vegan or vegetarian diets should monitor the amount of iron in their blood since they aren’t getting iron from red meat.   Iron Deficiency Symptoms in Bodybuilders Iron deficiencies in bodybuilders can mean that muscles don’t recover as well between sets. If muscles can be provided with more oxygen through iron transport, they can work longer and harder when they’re needed.   These are some of the most common symptoms of an iron deficiency that bodybuilders experience. Muscle fatigue Overall fatigue Lack of mental clarity Difficulty maintaining a consistent body temperature Weak immune system Why Iron Deficiency is Common in Bodybuilders   Since bodybuilders’ workout is more intense than that of an average person, their diet requires more nutrients of varying types. Iron deficiencies often build up over time in stages, starting with an iron intake that doesn’t meet the needs of your growing muscles.   The amount of iron intake and how much is lost through bodily fluids determines the iron balance. And the quantity of iron that the body absorbs depends upon how much is eaten, what foods are eaten, and what foods are paired together during meals.   Supplementing with Iron on a Bodybuilding Diet Many bodybuilders are already very familiar with sports and nutrition supplements to build lean muscle, reduce fat, and boost metabolism. Iron can be derived from healthy foods; however, bodybuilders’ diets are often restrictive and very regimented. On days leading up to competition in particular, there may be less variety in the foods that are eaten, based upon a trainer’s recommendations.   Fergon iron supplements are strong enough for any bodybuilder, yet gentle enough not to disrupt your workout routine if you are a bodybuilder. If your diet isn’t allowing you to get the iron you need to be competitive, supplementation may help you achieve peak performance while pursuing your fitness goals.

    Along with causing heart and kidney problems, untreated high blood pressure can also affect your eyesight and lead to eye disease. Hypertension can cause damage to the blood vessels in the retina, the area at the back of the eye where images focus. This eye disease is known as hypertensive retinopathy. The damage can be serious if hypertension is not treated. Remedis to reduce High Cholesterol video   What Are the Symptoms of Hypertensive Retinopathy? A person typically won't experience symptoms of hypertensive retinopathy; it is usually discovered during a routine eye exam. However, symptoms might include headaches and vision problems.   Signs of retinopathy that include: Narrowing of blood vesselsSpots on the retina known as cotton wool spots and exudatesSwelling of the macula (the central area of the retina) and optic nerveBleeding in the back of the eye   The best way to treat hypertensive retinopathy is to adequately control your blood pressure.   To prevent hypertensive retinopathy, keep your blood pressure under control by reaching and maintaining your optimal weight, sticking with a diet recommended by your physician, exercising regularly, and faithfully taking your high blood pressure medications as prescribed. In addition, see your doctor on a regular basis for follow-up care.   Foods that help lower blood pressure 1. Leafy greens romaine lettuce arugula kale turnip greens collard greens spinach beet greens Swiss chard   2. Berries Berries, especially blueberries, are rich in natural compounds called flavonoids. One study found that consuming these compounds might prevent hypertension and help lower blood pressure.   3. Skim milk and yogurt Skim milk is an excellent source of calcium and is low in fat. These are both important elements of a diet for lowering blood pressure. You can also opt for yogurt if you don’t like milk.   4. Bananas Eating foods that are rich in potassium is better than taking supplements. Slice a banana into your cereal or oatmeal for a potassium-rich addition. You can also take one to go along with a boiled egg for a quick breakfast or snack.   5. Garlic Garlic can help reduce hypertension by increasing the amount of nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide helps promote vasodilation, or the widening of arteries, to reduce blood pressure.

    Last year, Youtube-mp3.org was slapped with a whopping £35 million lawsuit by record labels that include Sony Music, Warner Bros. and UMG. Allegedly, the German-based site was held as responsible for over 40% of all music ripped off YouTube. The site averages 60 million users a month. Yup, that's a lot.   The record labels sought £115,000 for every instance of piracy: 300 songs were listed in the lawsuit to have been ripped and downloaded by users. Philip Matesanz, the owner of the site, has agreed to transfer the domain to a party representing the labels and to pay an undisclosed settlement fee, according to The Verge.   Stream-ripping was declared the most aggressive and fastest-growing form of music piracy, in a report by BBC. As of now, no final judgments have been ruled by the court but authorities are expected to be clamping down hard on Matesanz and those behind the site.   Despite the closure of Youtube-mp3, Billboard rightfully points out that there are still many stream-ripping websites still available. Whether labels will be hunting them down remains to be seen, but like the recent clampdown of Kick Ass Torrents, cut the head and more will grow.   >> Find Similar download Sites Online

    Nobody brags about eating junk. A healthy diet includes veggies and eschews too much sugar, and if you eat that way, you can feel satisfied that you are eating “clean.” But you know what? Eating clean is a trap.   Sure, it feels good to eat a “clean” meal or two. Nevermind that there’s no consistent definition of “clean.” I liked the word when I first heard it, because I took it to mean unprocessed foods (fresh vegetables, home-cooked meals) and it wasn’t wedded to any particular theory, like eating low-carb or low-fat. But the same vagueness that was once its appeal has been co-opted. Now anything can be clean if it’s sold by someone standing on a beach looking gorgeous.   This was probably inevitable. For years we’ve heard that diets don’t work; what you need to be healthy is a lifestyle change. So, breed that mostly sensible concept with our modern craze for the all-around enviable lifestyle, and what you get is an influencer (Instagrammer, movie star, supplement huckster, et. al.) who can paint you a picture of the amazing person you will be if you eat what they eat.   Here’s how the appeal works: each guru presents a simple idea held up by a scaffolding of half truths and cherry picked data. Debunk one small pillar, and the others still stand. Nobody has time to debunk them all, and if you try, you look like a killjoy. But from a distance, that one big idea looks like a beacon of clarity in a confusing world.   Here are some examples: You just need to eat nothing but vegetables. Or avoid most vegetables. Or cut out gluten. Or eliminate dairy, grains, and sugar. These aren’t variations on one basic idea of healthy eating; they’re each a different gimmick masquerading as common sense. Bee Wilson writes in The Guardian that we’ve been snookered by a “dream of purity in a toxic world” and “[w]e are so unmoored that we will put our faith in any master who promises us that we, too, can become pure and good.”   This fantasy backfires, though, when we look at the foods and diets and people who don’t qualify as “clean.” Does that mean that other foods, and the people who eat them, are “dirty”? It’s not like quinoa is that different from rice, or sweet potatoes are that different from regular potatoes. Coconut sugar is far more expensive than regular sugar, as Wilson points out, but nutritionally almost identical.   The same goes for processed food. It’s not as if processing is inherently bad. (Cooking is a form of processing, after all). Twinkies, for example, aren’t “unclean.” They’re just high in sugar and low in a lot of healthy nutrients, so it makes sense not to eat too many of them. Without the halo of clean eating, we’re back to evaluating foods on their merits, and figuring out whether they fit into the diet that makes sense for each of us. Sorry if that’s less romantic

    It happens with parents all the time. They sign little Everett up for kids’ soccer, and he’s good. Really good. So they put him in soccer summer camps, goalkeeper clinics, and spend every weekend lugging coolers and lawn chairs to his soccer games all over the state. They start daydreaming about college scholarships and professional contracts and how he might even become the next Christian Pulisic. Good thing they discovered his perfect sport so young, right?   Maybe not. According to new research published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, specializing in a sport at a young age does not seem to be related to future success in that sport at an elite level, and can even be harmful, leading to more injuries. Those required 10,000 hours of practice don’t apply to most sports, except for the ones where athletes compete at the Olympic level young, like rhythmic gymnastics and figure skating. For kids, it’s better to try different sports and activities, or just run around and play whatever comes to mind. (Remember when all the neighborhood children just knocked on each other’s doors and gathered to play tag in the field? Me neither, but let’s bring that back.)   Here’s why. Overtraining Can Lead to More Injuries Repeating the same movements over and over, like pitching a baseball, can put stress on the ligaments, muscles, tendons and growth plates. Kids’ bodies are not the same as adult bodies, and those who specialize in a sport have the additional risk of sustaining overuse injuries, according to the data. For example, in a study of 546 teenage female athletes who played basketball, soccer or volleyball, there was an increased rate of anterior knee pain in those who had specialized in the individual sports at an early age than those who played a variety of sports.   Specialization Can Lead to Burnout The pressure for kids to be “committed” to one sport is causing emotional burnout. That leads to them quitting the sport, and once they quit, they rarely return. About 70 percent of children drop out of organized sports by age 13. It’s too much pressure.   The Best Athletes Played a Variety of Sports When They Were Young In the study, which surveyed 3039 athletes at the high school level and beyond, only 22% of professional athletes said they would want their own child to specialize in one sport during childhood and adolescence. Most pro athletes played two or more sports at a young age, especially high school—check out the massive Wikipedia list. Participating in multiple sports builds up different muscles, and can help players become better all-around athletes. Several college football coaches even say they seek out multi-sport athletes on the recruiting trail.   The American Academy of Pediatrics warns against single-sport specialization, and instead recommend that parents: - Delay sports specialization until at least age 15 or 16.- Encourage their kids to participate in multiple sports.- Discuss sports goals with their pediatrician to see if they are appropriate and realistic.- Take time off from the sport if they do decide to specialize. They should take a break from their sport at least three months during the year, in increments of one month. They can still be active in other ways, of course.- Take one to two days off from their sport per week to decrease chances of injury.

    I used to get in debates almost every time I drank whiskey on whether or not it was appropriate to add water to the stuff. A few aficionado friends would always argue that the only way to drink whiskey was straight up, and I was ruining it with a few drops of H2O. I’d argue most whiskeys were a bit better with a few cubes of ice or a tiny bit of water. The fact of the matter is you should enjoy it however you prefer it, but now there’s actual science to back up my water claims.   To be fair, I’m far from the first person who has claimed water improves the taste of whiskey. While once taboo, connoisseurs have been embracing the fact that water can release some of a whiskey’s aromatics and enhance its flavor for a while. When I was traveling in Scotland earlier this year, distilleries actually provided tiny water pitchers with every tasting and encouraged drinking some bottles a little diluted. We all know some whiskey can taste a bit better that way; however, a group of Swedish scientists actually set out to discover why.   According to their research, the ethanol and guaiacol molecules in whiskey stick together, and they don’t really mix uniformly with water. Guaiacol is the stuff that gives something like scotch whisky a smoky smell and taste.   Researchers found that when water is added to a whiskey, the guaiacol molecules make their way to the top of the glass rather than remaining evenly distributed throughout. That means you’re getting more of that smell and taste up front when you take a sip.   The higher the ethanol concentration is of the whisky when it’s bottled, the more it will benefit from having a few drops of water added when it comes time to drink it. According to the study, Cask-strength whiskeys (which tend to be higher in alcohol than others) in particular can benefit from a tiny bit of dilution in order to increase “the propensity of taste compounds at the liquid-air interface.” Read: the flavor you taste when you drink it.   Does that mean you have to add water to every whiskey? Absolutely not. I always suggest that when someone is trying a whiskey for the first time, they pour a small amount and drink it straight up. Afterwards, try another tiny portion with a few drops of water and decide which version you like best. Let me emphasize the few drops part. Don’t add more water than you have whiskey (or do, but I can’t support you in that endeavor).   I’ll add a small amount of water to most scotch whiskeys, but when it comes to Japanese whiskey I prefer to drink them straight up rather than adding anything or putting them in cocktails. In the end, it’s all up to your personal preference.   That said, if you’re a water fan sometimes like me, it’s nice that we have a little science to back us up in that next bar fight.

    FOR YOUR PROTECTION, DONT BE FOOLED! PUBLIC LIKES IS A BIG SCAM. Shangaza believes that public likes became popular after being pumped with fake traffic mostly we suspect the fake traffic comes from Netherlands. Any site that receives large traffic it automatic becomes popular.   We also believe public likes started as a single domain publiclikes.com and later divided into subdomains- these subdomains were created to serve those countries where people are mostly desperate for example kenya.publiclikes.com far-most, a serious company could have a thought about putting /ke (publiclikes.com/ke) instead on starting the country name as a full word.   We also believe these people started as financially unstable - they used people to work on their adverts and earn from the ads, also at same time, they snatched the servants money by lieing to them to upgrade their accounts. Public likes we believe each listed subdomain countries they have their agents who receive the money from the servants who try to upgrade and they divide this money - some being transfered overseas.   The domain age is 115 Days this is a warning telling you to give it time before dealing with it / sending your money to it. A certified business should be at least 3 - 5yrs of age on the internet. To continue, facebook did block public likes url from being posted on their site - its easy to see but desperation is killing many. Please leave it and look for a Job or try other means like gambling on sportpesa where you can withdraw your money at anytime.

    SportPesa says it will be forced to close its Kenyan operation and move to other countries with favourable taxation laws.   The gaming company is considering shifting base to Tanzania or the United Kingdom (UK) in a move that could lead to loss of tens of jobs in Kenya, the Business Daily reports, if the law prescribing a 35 per cent turnover tax for the industry is not repealed.   SportsPesa Global chief executive officer (CEO) Gerasim Nikolov says the company can no longer operate profitably under the new tax policy.   “There is nowhere in the world where such a huge tax is levied on turnovers and even here in Kenya, no firm can survive today if a 35 per cent tax was put on its turnover,” he said. “Unfortunately, the ultimate effect of us shifting operations from here will be wide considering the various business that depend on this industry.”   President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the Finance Bill 2017 into law which, among others, imposes a uniform 35 per cent tax on all gambling revenue – betting, gaming, lotteries and prize competitions.   Before, licensed sports betting operators had been subject to a 7.5 percent betting tax.   The government is targeting to reap higher tax revenue from the fast-growing industry. “You cannot run a business just to pay tax to the government,” said SportPesa Kenya CEO Ronald Karauri, who also chairs the Association of gaming Operators (AGOK). “It is not worth the sweat and were we not present in the UK and Tanzania, we would just wind up….this is a death sentence to the whole industry.”   Last month, the SportPesa founder announced the withdrawal of sponsorship for local sports clubs from January citing the new tax burden. The firm, founded in Kenya in 2014, currently sponsors Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards, Kenya’s biggest football teams, as well as the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) and the Kenya Football Federation.   The firm recently opened Tanzania operations and announced a Ksh2.2 million sponsorship for the Serengeti Boys football team.   Parliament initially slapped a 50 per cent tax on sports betting sites and lottery companies, but later lowered it to 35 per cent before Mr Kenyatta signed it into law.   The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), which collected Sh4.7 billion in revenues from gaming firms, had proposed that the tax be doubled to 15 per cent to be at par with what Rwanda (13 percent) and Ghana (17.5 percent) levies.   The 35 per cent tax would yield more revenue to the government, but will in the long run drive away investors and trigger transfer pricing by players.

    A government agency has raised the alarm over the fake rice in the market.   Tana Athi Water Services Board director Mureithi Kang’ara said unscrupulous businesspersons were sneaking plastic rice into the market, impoverishing tens of farmers growing the crop.   “Some people are bringing in fake and cheap rice and packaging it as if it is grown in Kenya, especially from Kirinyaga County irrigation schemes,” he said. Kang’ara called on the Kenya Bureau of Standards and other agencies to end the cartel killing local industries. He noted rice farmers remain poor despite bumper harvest every year due to the smuggling, adding that the government needs to empower and motivate rice farmers by providing irrigation water.

    The Match will be Live on Shangaza England internationals Ross Barkley and Leighton Baines plus Frenchman Morgan Schneiderlin are among several stars set to feature in next week's friendly match pitting English Premier League side Everton against Gor Mahia in Dar es Salaam.   The game will kick off at the refurbished 60,000 seater National Stadium on Thursday from 5pm.   The trio are among dozens of players who returned for pre-season training at the English club's Halewood grounds on Monday following a five-week rest.   They were joined by new signings Michael Keane, Sandro Ramirez formerly at Malaga in the Spanish La Liga and Davy Klaassen, are also expected to make the historical trip to Tanzania.   "From Thursday we'll have most of the players back, including some of our new players and you couldn't wish for a better situation than that as a coach," fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg told the club's official website.   He added: "The first week we'll stay here at Finch Far and we'll start up in the way we like to start - it's not very physical but we do a lot with the ball."   "After that we have a couple of days in Tanzania and we will play a game (against Gor Mahia) and have a training session out there, followed by a good week of work in Holland."   Burly Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, who has been linked with a move away from the club, alongside new Nigerian signing Henry Onyekuru are however unlikely to make the trip.   Gor Mahia deputy secretary Ronald Ngala also confirmed the 15-time Kenyan champions will field their strongest available squad in this assignment.   Gor are currently top of the standings in the SportPesa Premier League, whilst Everton finished fifth in the just concluded English Premier League season.   H2H Statistics SportPesa All Stars 1-2 to Hull City Hull City 0-4 Everton   Our Prediction Gor mahia vs Everton - Away will lead this game!
