Three Ways to Naturally Boost your Body's Muscle-building Ability

Growth hormone is one of the most powerful substances in the human body. When levels surge, muscles grow and fat burns. No wonder athletes and actors are always trying to buy the stuff. Unfortunately, they also get busted all the time. To keep yourself out of jail and get great results, try manipulating your levels naturally.
HOW TO DO IT
1.) Get at least eight hours of sleep per night. Growth hormone levels skyrocket during deep sleep.
2.) Perform multiple sets (three or more) per exercise, using short rest periods (around one minute)—GH spikes when you're breathing heavily.
3.) Drink a carb- and protein-rich shake, ideally in a 2:1 ratio, 15-20 minutes after a workout. After sleep, this is your second-biggest GH surge of the day.

Lack of Sleep Can Lower Testosterone

If hitting the sheets extra late every night is the norm for you, it might be in your best interest to change your routine. A new study finds that skipping sleep can drastically lower testosterone levels in healthy guys in as little as one week.
A recent study funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute found testosterone levels dropped significantly in men who don’t get enough sleep—equivalent to aging 10-15 years. These lower levels affect more than just the libido as testosterone deficiency is also linked to lower energy, poor concentration, fatigue and decreased strength.

Titanium iPhone Case by Case-Mate

With all the complaints we heard after the iPhone 4 launched with its signal-squeezing metal frame, it's surprising that anyone would think of wrapping it in yet another layer of metal. Yet here we are, staring at the Case-Mate Titanium iPhone Case ($300). This precision-machined case is made from a single piece of titanium and matches the curves of the iPhone 4 perfectly — the fit is so tight, in fact, that minor assembly is required. Bet you can't say that about your current rubber case.

VW to introduce 2012 Black Turbo Beetle

VW is following Porsche and BMW’s lead with a Black limited edition vehicle with special paint, trim and tires. Now far from emasculating and upped in the masculinity quotient, the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Black Turbo Edition ($25,720) aims to draw 600 buyers with its 2.0 liter TFSI turbo four-banger from the Golf GTI, DSG dual clutch transmission, 18 inch wheels with black highlights, fiery red brake calipers, a “Turbo” decal emblazoned on the side, a non-offensive lip spoiler and a swanky carbon fiber trimmed interior. You can pretty much say goodbye to the limp-wristed Beetle from the last generation. This time, it’s a head-turner for the right reasons.

Barbecued Chicken with Maple Sauce



Barbecued Chicken
(serves 8)

Ingredients:
8 pounds skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
¼ cup canola oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Maple-Flavored Barbecue Sauce (below)

Method:
Wash and dry the chicken pieces. Coat with oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Prepare the grill (charcoal or gas) according to the manufacturer's directions for medium heat.

Place the chicken on the grill, skin side down and cook 10 minutes on each side. Brush each piece of chicken with the barbecue sauce, turn and grill 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly (when juices run clear). Turn frequently to avoid burning, brushing with barbecue sauce as needed. The chicken should be tender and slightly charred to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
