If you have a hard time feeling your pecs working when you bench press, THIS is for you. It's an excellent technique for forcing the pecs into a better position to contract when doing a bench press...and this will help you build a bigger chest faster! http://www.thebestchestexercises.com To use this technique, you'll need a bench and a single square Step riser/platform...(you'll likely have to raid the cardio section of your gym to find one of these). I got mine for dirt cheap at a garage sale and found it to be an extremely versatile piece of training equipment, beyond just doing stepping exercises. The elevation of the upper back forces the chest to expand due to the arch in the lower back. This helps get your shoulders back, which reduces their involvement in the press. (I also find that because my head is not pressing into the bench, the base of support is primarily the upper back, which tends to load the pecs a bit more effectively.) So essentially, instead of your chest being in a flat, pancake position (which can easily happen when pressing for more than 1 rep), your chest is puffed out and your pecs are in a MUCH better anatomical position to contract through the entire set. Famous bodybuilding trainer John Parrillo created a bench with this position in mind (chest forced to expand), called the Parrillo Arched Bench. This simple addition of the Step riser to a normal flat bench helps get you into that similar position for optimal chest development without needing to have the full bench (which is rare in gyms and can be hard to find). This exercise can also be done in the power rack using a barbell instead of dumbbells, though I do find dumbbells to be more effective for really feeling the pecs working on this exercise. You can also use this setup for dumbbell flyes for increased pec stretch and contraction. This is an excellent one to finish off your pecs, following the pressing. I like to hold the dumbbells at a 45 degree angle at the bottom...I find it much easier on my shoulder joints while still getting a great stretch at the bottom. You can keep the palms in a neutral position, if you prefer. This simple addition to your bench press will make a BIG difference in your pec development. Pull back on the heavy barbell training for a few weeks and put this one to work instead...you'll notice definite improvement in your pecs within a few short weeks! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want more training info like this?

Hemodynamic Consequences Of Severe Lactic Acidosis In Shock States: From Bench To Bedside
Hemodynamic consequences of severe lactic acidosis in shock states: from bench to bedside Kimmoun et al.; licensee BioMed Central.2015 The Erratum to this article has been published in Critical Care 2017 21:40 Lactic acidosis is a very common biological issue for shock patients. Experimental data clearly demonstrate that metabolic acidosis, including lactic acidosis, participates in the reduction of cardiac contractility and in the vascular hyporesponsiveness to vasopressors through various mechanisms. However, the contributions of each mechanism responsible for these deleterious effects have not been fully determined and their respective consequences on organ failure are still poorly defined, particularly in humans. Despite some convincing experimental data, no clinical trial has established the level at which pH becomes deleterious for hemodynamics. Consequently, the essential treatment for lactic acidosis in shock patients is to correct the cause. It is unknown, however, whether symptomatic pH correction is beneficial in shock patients. The latest Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines recommend against the use of buffer therapy with pH 7.15 and issue no recommendation for pH lev
This is another in my how to series of making things. In this video I show you how to make a water ionization alkalization water unit using simple parts found around the house for around $20 to $30. I did this unit for my health, and to help me clean up 48 years of too many burgers and pizza, also to help me clean the fluoride and chlorine that many cities are putting into the public drinking water systems. I have been drinking the water I made in this unit for over a few weeks, with no harmful effects what so ever, I have however felt better, have more energy, and just a few days. After I started drinking my water I was able to cut my grass and still felt fine, where before I was dead, heck at one point I had to lay in my driveway to rest before I could get cleaned up. This video is intended for educational purposes only. So if you do decide to build one please do so at your own risk. The water made in this unit will result in a high PH ionized alkalized water which is said to balance the high acidic levels of your body. Note to date I do not own a digital ORP or PH level meter so I did the best I could with a chemical test unit I own. I advise anybody building one to purchase these items to get an accurate result of your water levels. Ok Ed, but what does PH and ORP mean? In simple terms PH = acid/alkaline balance = ionizing = O.R.P. (oxidation reduction potential) This is saying that when there are more H+ ions in water than OH- ions, it will read as acidic. When there are more OH- than H+, it's alkaline water. So acid or alkaline liquid is measured as pH, and pH is a measure of hydrogen ions (atoms).The more H+ in a liquid, the more 'acidic'. The more OH-, the more alkaline. What is a good level then? The fact is, most water ionizers will have an ORP reading of -300 to -600 at the 9.5 pH level most often used for drinking, but I have read that the body is not able to process anything over -350, and as the ORP goes to a stronger negative reading than -350 the body isn't able to process the excess. Drinking ionized water throughout the day, at any negative ORP level, gives the body a steady supply of antioxidants -- and minerals -- and hydration, so do not freak out if your water is at a -500 ORP. What is the reason then for drinking alkaline water? Some are reverse aging, more energy, there are too many to list, but the answer is out there on the internet please do the research. Lets just say our body is overloaded with acid type foods like burgers, beer, and soda, it needs help or it starts to rob bones and teeth, and yes, we actually erode our own skeleton to feed our acid habit. It can lead to gout which is painful I'll tell you what. Alkaline water helps to reduce the acid and help the body to balance, but reducing the burgers and beer should be the first step. Remember blood is 7.35 to 7.45 PH.

Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis that begins in the kidneys. People with lactic acidosis have kidneys that are unable to remove excess acid from their body. If lactic acid builds up in the body more quickly than it can be removed, acidity levels in bodily fluids — such as blood — spike. This buildup of acid causes an imbalance in the body’s pH level, which should always be slightly alkaline instead of acidic. There are a few ...
