Larry Wheels Curls Two Human Beings Like It’s Nothing

Larry Wheels has made a name for himself by lifting impressive amounts of weight, and not always in the form of iron plates. The professional Strongman once easily lifted bodybuilder Zac Perna, and recently he upped the ante by curling not one, but two living, breathing humans. 

In the video below, Wheels has a woman in his right hand and a man in the left. According to the freak of nature himself, each weighs 70kg (154 pounds). Yes, he’s not using the strictest form while curling them, but it’s still pretty impressive that he’s able to get them up.

Curls for the girls? More like curls with the girls. 

We’re not the only ones impressed—people in the comments expressed amazement at the feat of strength. Others somewhat jokingly pointed out that this was an easy way for him to tear his bicep again (which he did earlier this year while lifting Atlas stones). 

Their joke, though, serves an important purpose: this shouldn’t be attempted by everyone. Wheels is insanely strong and trains almost every day. This stunt should be left to the professionals. 

Hours after uploading that footage, Wheels once again stunned the Internet by uploading footage of himself benching 565 pounds for five reps with a pause at the bottom.

Wheels last competed, and won, InsurreXtion 8 with a 2,285-pound total (835-pound squat, 635-pound bench, and 815-pound deadlift). It’s unclear when he’s competing again or whether it’ll be in powerlifting or Strongman, but we’re sure that curling a couple of humans won’t hurt his chances in either event.

The 1-Week Workout Plan to Kick-Start Your New Year’s Resolutions

Young-Muscular-Man-Doing-Lunges-In-Dark-Gym

As countless New Year’s resolutioners have discovered the hard way, going balls-to-the-wall on January 1 typically means burning out before February. To truly translate your New Year’s resolutions into practical, everyday habits, you need to pace yourself. 

So rather than hitting the gym too hard and subsequently destroying your body, here’s a workout program that’ll help you stick to your resolution of getting positively jacked in 2020.

This one-week kickstarter plan, designed by Mike Krajewski, C.S.C.S., owner of MK Fitness in Nashville, TN, is designed to fire up every one of your body’s energy-burning systems to get you started on the right foot without going overboard. If you haven’t worked out consistently over the holidays, this total-body program will ease you into a heavier-duty regimen and set you up for success in the new year—and beyond.

[RELATED1]

How to do it

Complete this workout program for two weeks straight. You’ll rest after Day II and Day III. (If you start with Day I on a Monday, that means you’ll be resting on Wednesdays and Fridays.)

One quick detail: On Sunday, when you lunge, you’ll complete front to reverse lunges with light dumbbells. You’ll step your right leg forward into a front lunge while performing a lateral shoulder raise with your left arm. Then you’ll step back with your right leg into a reverse lunge as you curl the dumbbells. That’s one rep. Do this pattern for 8-10 reps on the right leg, followed by 8-10 reps with the left leg.

Once the two weeks are up, start on a focused muscle-building regimen, like some of our favorites:

The 15-Minute Total-Body TRX Routine


Muscular-Male-Doing-Trx-Workout

Per Bernal / M+F Magazine

This is a full-body routine that incorporates a triset and a superset to raise intensity while increasing the amount of work you achieve in less time.

“The triset and super-set are what we call ‘mechanical advantage’ dropsets,” says Zack Even-Esh (zacheven-esh.com), founder of Underground Strength Gym and head strength and conditioning coach for the Rutgers University wrestling team.

“You first perform an exercise in the toughest position, and then you continue changing the body angle to an easier position.”

Meanwhile, the mountain climbers will attack the abs and the upper body (isometrically) and raise your heart rate.

[RELATED1]

Directions

Perform exercises 1A, 1B, and 1C as a triset. Perform exercises 3A and 3B as a superset. Rest 60 seconds after the triset and superset, and 30 seconds after each set of mountain climbers.

Practicing Yoga Might Keep Your Brain Healthy


Practicing Yoga Might Keep Your Brain Healthy

Oleh_Slobodeniuk / Getty

Yoga has been around for more than 5,000 years and boasts some pretty impressive health and fitness benefits, but a new review of 11 scientific studies suggests that it may be even better for the brain than previously thought. 

Scientists analyzed five studies done on people with no yoga experience who were put on a regimen of one or more sessions per week for 10-24 weeks, while the other six studies looked at the brain differences between consistent yogis and non-yogis. All of the studies involved Hatha yoga and used methods like MRI, functional MRI, or SPECT scans to measure the differences in participants’ brains.

“From these 11 studies, we identified some brain regions that consistently come up, and they are surprisingly not very different from what we see with exercise research,” lead study author Neha Gothe, a kinesiology and community health professor at the University of Illinois, said in a release. “For example, we see increases in the volume of the hippocampus with yoga practice.”

According to Gothe, hippocampus growth is something that’s also been seen in studies of aerobic exercise. Since the hippocampus is the part of the brain that involves learning and memory, that’s good news. A smaller hippocampus has been linked to depression, stress, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Study author and Wayne State University psychology professor Jessica Damoiseaux said that though many of the studies in the review are exploratory, not conclusive, their research also suggests that other brain changes are associated with practicing yoga regularly. One such change seems to be a larger amygdala—a part of the brain that’s key in processing emotion and reactions like fear or pleasure—and a healthier prefrontal cortex and default mode network.

[RELATED2]

“The prefrontal cortex, a brain region just behind the forehead, is essential to planning, decision-making, multitasking, thinking about your options and picking the right option,” Damoiseaux said. “The default mode network is a set of brain regions involved in thinking about the self, planning and memory.” Overall, the brain changes that researchers saw in people who practiced yoga are linked to doing well on cognitive tests and regulating emotions.

The study authors admit that more rigorous research is necessary to see exactly how yoga affects the brain, but Gothe finds it interesting that yoga might have similar effects to aerobic exercise.

“Yoga is not aerobic in nature, so there must be other mechanisms leading to these brain changes,” Gothe said. “So far, we don’t have the evidence to identify what those mechanisms are.” She thinks it may have to do with emotional regulation, since stress has been linked to a smaller hippocampus and doing poorly on memory tests. 

Overall, the researchers think larger studies that have participants do yoga for months, comparing the yoga groups with control groups who exercise, and using cognitive testing to compare yoga with other forms of exercise would help lead to more conclusive answers. 

“The science is pointing to yoga being beneficial for healthy brain function,” Damoiseaux said,” but we need more rigorous and well-controlled intervention studies to confirm these initial findings.”

In 2 Days, California’s Privacy Law Will Hit Amazon, Walmart & Other Retailers — 4 Things to Know

A new California law aims to provide consumers will more control over their personal information, which also means more guidelines for businesses to follow.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020. Initially approved in 2018, the law grants Golden State consumers more control over who can access their data. For businesses, CCPA brings a series of new guidelines to follow.

Below, FN outlines four things to know about the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Consumers can prevent the sale of their data

The CCPA provides consumers with four broad privileges: the right to know, the right to delete, the right to opt out and the right to nondiscrimination. Right to know means consumers can know what personal information is being collected, held and sold, while right to delete means they can request businesses eliminate that information. The right to opt out applies specifically to sales and means consumers can decline to have their information sold. Finally, right to nondiscrimination means consumers cannot be charged more or given worse service as a result of exercising the previous three rights.

Every major retailer will be impacted

Small businesses aren’t affected under the CCPA, but businesses that make over $25 million in gross annual revenues or have personal info for 50,000-plus consumers, households and devices are impacted. Extra regulations apply to businesses with the data for 4 million or more consumers. That means major retailers doing business in California such as  Walmart, Amazon and Target will have to make adjustments to comply. Specifically, companies will have to add a button to their sites or mobile apps allowing consumers to opt out. Businesses are legally obligated both to reply to consumer opt-out requests and to keep records of requests they’ve received.

If they don’t comply, business will face thousands of dollars in fines

Businesses will be charged $2,500 per violation of the CCPA — and fines increase to $7,500 if the government finds the violation to be intentional. It’s up to the California attorney general, Xavier Becerra, to take action if companies don’t reply to consumers’ requests to go through with deletion.

Consumers themselves have limited recourse in case of a violation. While they can sue in case of a data breach, they’re unable to take legal action for non-deletion.

The law is expected to protect more than $12B of personal info each year

Rough estimates from the state of California put the cost of complying with the CCPA’s regulations between $467 million and $16.454 billion over the next decade from 2020 to 2030. This number is specifically the cost associated with the regulations and not general compliance costs associated to the underlying CCPA law, the government noted. But the value of personal information that will be protected under the CCPA could be much higher — and more critical by certain tallies. As a result of the new legislation, more than $12 billion worth of personal info used in advertising will be protected each year, according to the state government.

Travis Scott Teases a Potential Nike SB Dunk Low Collaboration on Instagram

With a Nike Air Max 270 React collaboration reportedly in the works, Travis Scott and Nike may be adding to their long list of collaborative styles next year with a brand-new SB Dunk Low.

The unreleased style was spotted on Scott’s Instagram and was also seen on the feet of the Houston rapper in his new “Jackboys” music video that debuted over the weekend. The purported collab makes use of earthy tones, including a light brown base that’s paired with dark brown side panels, and is covered with graphics throughout.

He often shows off his extensive collection, including the coveted “Paris” SB Dunks (which cost over $20,000 in the secondary market) that he rocked in celebration of his 28th birthday.

For now, Scott or Nike SB have yet to confirm official release details surrounding the unreleased Nike SB Dunk Low, but the pair is rumored to be released sometime in 2020.

Snow Boots, Animal Print Top Amazon’s Best-Selling Items and Trends This Holiday Season

Amazon had a strong holiday season. According to the company, customers shopped at record levels, ordering billions of items.

Many of its in-demand products came from the toy, fashion, home and beauty categories, with more than 500 million items ordered. Top-selling brands within the fashion category were Champion, Adidas, Carhartt and Amazon Essentials.

A key trend in 2019 was animal print, seen in various forms, including leopard, snake, croc, zebra and more. And this appears to be carrying over into 2020, as it was a major seller for Amazon this holiday. Part of that sales success came from Amazon Fashion holiday gift guides, which were curated by influencers including Pink Peonies’ Rachel Parcell and Something Navy’s Arielle Charnas. For instance, Charnas featured multiple fashion items in animal print, such as a Schutz Bette kitten-heeled bootie in snake, leopard leather block-heel ankle boots by Find. and a Loeffler Randall knot headband, also in leopard print.

In addition, snow boots and cold weather accessories were popular among shoppers, from brands such as Columbia, Pendleton and Calvin Klein.

The company also revealed that the number of products delivered with Prime Free One-Day and Prime Free Same-Day Delivery nearly quadrupled compared with the same holiday period in 2018.

The day after Christmas, the e-commerce giant’s stock soared more than 4%. The positive momentum follows a rocky start to the month, when Amazon’s stock faltered amid ongoing trade tensions and delivery delays due to weather and high holiday demand.

Last week’s gains, however, pushed Amazon stock up 37% since its 52-week low of $1,363.01 per share on the same day last year. The company is now worth $926.5 billion.
