I had one goal: to get as lean as possible. I followed my coach’s meal plans to a T, never missed a workout, and would stay in the gym for multiple hours in order to fit everything in. Balance wasn’t even in my thoughts. I became obsessive, restricting myself to stick to the plan. I started turning down social events with friends because I thought it would get in the way of my workout regimen or my meal plan. I pushed down the fun, spontaneous side of me in favor of dedication and progress.
“Bench dips target all three heads of the triceps, but they put a good amount of strain on the deltoid and shoulder if you go too deep,” he explains. Meanwhile, the inverted shoulder press targets your whole upper body, and the more toned your shoulders and chest look, the better your triceps will pop. You can also make the move harder by changing the angle of your upside down V—the more inverted you get, the more you’ll load the shoulders and triceps, Ryan adds.
If you can’t afford hypnotherapy, or just aren't comfortable working with a hypnotherapist, you can perform hypnotherapy on your own. "On a scale of one to 10 effectiveness, with guided hypnosis being a 10, self-hypnosis is probably a three," Wells says. "It's like taking a vacation when you're the driver as opposed to the passenger. You still got a break but you don't come home quite as relaxed." Still, it’s better than not taking a vacation at all.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
