Bicep Buster Workout Helps Promotes Arm Growth

Who wants big arms? No, no… let me rephrase that, who wants HUGE arms?! If you yelled “Me!” in your head as ecstatically as I think you did then this piece is for you my friend.

It’s no secret that when speaking about optimizing arm growth, curls are king time and time again – there is indeed many ways you can incorporate curls into your training but at the end of the day you’re still just curling. One of the most overlooked yet effective variations of curls in my opinion is the Barbell Spider Curl, why? Because when performing this type of curl in combination with heavy weight and high repetition, you’re hitting the long head of the bicep so efficiently with the stretch that it has no choice BUT to grow. The long head of the bicep is responsible for overall mass so if your arms are a little on the slender side I’d suggest adding this bad boy into the mix pronto. I’ve seen people use the preacher pad when barbell spider curling but I’d rather you use an incline bench so you can get more of a stretch at the lowest point of the exercise. Now, if you’re training alone, getting into position may be a wee bit of a hassle but it isn’t impossible especially when using a barbell. With that being said, this is definitely a move I recommend you begin with a weight you can at least 90% control before climbing up that ego ladder. BSCs was a normality for me on arm days for a long time before I took them out for whatever reason, recently I’ve returned to them and am now relishing in their gun loading glory. Below is my itinerary suggestion to you set and rep wise so write it down, try it out and when your arms no longer fit into that form fitting V-neck you come back and thank me.
 The Barbell Spider Curls workout:
1s x 12 reps
1s x 10 reps
1s x 10 reps
Weight used: About 75-80% of your overall curl max
Rest time: No more than 45 seconds in-between each set


Additional notes: When you curl the bar and it meets optimal height, flex your biceps to jampack as much blood into them as possible and connect with the contraction more so.
Why You Should Buy Your Fall Clothes Right Now

Now, while it's still smoking hot outside, is the perfect time to to pick up your fall gear, from wool sweaters to down jackets to tweed trousers, to, yes, even topcoats. Here's why. 
All of the Best Gear Is in Stores Now
Right now, stores like Barney's, Union Los Angeles, and online retailer Mr Porter are getting all of their awesome Fall-Winter 2015 collections by the boatload each and every day. The best of the best from high-end designers like Saint Laurent, Raf Simons, Gucci, and Tom Ford is yours for the taking, but only for a brief time. That means come October, that camel-hair topcoat you were drooling over now will almost surely be gone in your size. Waiting for things to go on sale can be cost-effective, but can literally leave you out in the cold. 
Shopping for Cold Weather Gear Sucks When It's Cold Outside 
Heading to the store for a new coat when you need a new coat is a perfect recipe for copping something you don't really want, but buy out of desperation. The same goes for cold weather gear like hats, gloves, and scarves. You want to buy your winter essentials—the stuff that separates the stylish from the swagless— when you can think clearly about which ones are going to look best on you come winter. 
It Gives You a Chance to Return Items
Buying stuff early also allows you to sit on all your new purchases and reflect, deciding whether or not they were actually wise choices. At the end of the season, you may hold onto that insanely ugly sweater either because it was on sale (and thus non-returnable), or because you're simply too lazy to brave the cold to bring it back to the store.
Camouflage Print Shoes Are Fast Becoming a Trend

Contrary to its name, camouflage is being spotted almost everywhere. Once reserved for battlefields is now hipster irony and making magazine headlines everywhere and being adorned on every occasion you can think of.

A COUNTERINTUITIVE FASHION TREND

If you are tired of following the same current fashion rules of denim with white tees and printed tees with sports jackets, exactly like everyone else, here is your chance to stand out of the crowd with camouflage print shoes.

CAMO PRINT DOESN’T SUIT YOU

While many don’t find the camo print favoring or being in sync with their personal style, yet they want to make a fashion statement without having to look like they are preparing for a paint ball match. For exactly that, the camouflage print shoes works best. You can put on any outfit, may it be worn out jeans or black tights –and slip on some camouflage printed shoes as a sure way to give you a classy look, one that will turn heads.

THE VARIATIONS

Military style patterns are taking the fashion world by storm in such a way that the major runway label designers like Christopher Kane and Michael Kors showcased prints that were military pattern inspired only with variations of neon colors and incorporated in jackets and tops, making the pattern look so lavishly brilliant apart from having fashion enthusiasts all over the world view it in a different light.
Ariele Ella, the co curator of ‘Trendology’ exhibit at FITM (Fashion Institute of Technology Museum), dubbed the style a “parental trend”. It is apparently high time that it got back.
Now according to WGSN, the trend casting firm, the use of camouflages has soared up to 73%. But just because all the cool people are doing it, does that mean that you should too?
Not exactly the same way you don’t. You want to look chic, and not be mistaken for a soldier, a hunter, or a fanatic. Your camos should come in cleverly down played as an accessory and not over stated like a real camouflage. In fact, the promise of this style is so potent that you can make your look work if you simply don a watch and shoes over whatever you are wearing right now.
The tough and rugged look that you get wearing camo shoes is all anyone needs to pull off any outfits. Today, we are all about tailored style and personal look, with only inspiration from the fashion staples. No wonder the fashion runways have variations. The same is the case with camo shoes. A pair of branded pants may be giving you that urban roguish outlook you are going for, but a pair of these shoes will give you that classy edge and take your overall look a step ahead.

J. Crew is Developing New Budget-Friendly Label

After a challenging year of struggling sales, product quality concerns, criticism for its heavy-handed promotions, plus major leadership changes and staff cut-backs, J.Crew is hoping to turn things around. Looking to target a more cost-conscious customer, the retailer is developing a lower-priced line that can better compete with the fast-fashion players in the industry.
The new budget-friendly label, J.Crew Mercantile, features updated basics and modern classics for men and women, designed with J.Crew's signature elevated preppy aesthetic, but at prices akin to those you might find at Zara or COS. Think: Breton stripe knits, crisp shirts, and perfectly-worn denim. The selection is currently available exclusively through outlet stores and the Factory website, which is touted as "The Home of J.Crew Mercantile," but the line's first dedicated brick-and-mortar location is scheduled to open in Dallas, Texas in late July.
