- Develop your ability to create value for others. Your ability to have the life you want will be directly proportionally to your ability to create value that others are willing to pay for. Non-hustlers don’t work hard enough at creating value for others.
But if you’re like most of us and off-the-rack shirts don’t give you the “fitted” look you’re after, here are a few suggestions to get the perfect fit.
1. Use Your Head—Check Your Neck: Some guys just buy their shirts in small, medium, or large. No wonder they don't fit so well. You should know your measurements—neck size and arm length—and not just for the sake of it. These
With the advent of the new slimmer more tapered style sweats, men are saying good bye bidding to the old boxy sweatpants that you once settled for in department stores. Outside of the new styles and tapered cuts, customers are also seeing a change in construction and fabrics as well. The new sweats are coming equipped with heavier weighted materials and high quality stitching, giving customers not only a more stylish look, but a well rounded look as well.
How To Wear
You can now get the most out of your sweats in the following ways:
- Sweatshirts and pants are always a go to. However, you don’t have to look like are going to the gym if you aren’t.

- Say your friends want to grab brunch and you really don’t feel like changing out of your denim shirt, sweats and sneakers. What do you do? Grab a blazer to go with the sweats you already have on. A well fitted blazer always dresses up any look, plus, your friends won’t think you just rolled out of bed.

Squats --one of the staples of a workout-- are ideal for building muscle, not only in the quads, hamstrings, calves, but all over. Squats also help muscles burn more fat. But which order should you do squats? Before or after cardio?
Well a new study helps to answer that question. The study found that men who performed back squats after 30 minutes on an elliptical couldn’t perform as many reps as when they worked legs first. Doing a lower body endurance workout before a resistance leg workout had a negative effect ” due to muscle fatigue, the study determined. On the flip side, cardio didn’t affect bench press ability, so those can be done in any order.
For maximum reps on the back squats, save the cardio for later or another day.
