First Drive: 2015 Honda CR-V

Still not much changed from the just-right size it was when it debuted in the late 1990s, the 2015 Honda CR-V is otherwise a better vehicle in almost every conceivable way. We get behind the wheel of the newly revised small crossover, and find it to be just as useful as ever, while also being more luxurious than ever before. Get the scoop on this family cute-ute, here.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R has 300 hp… we’re sold

If only we could ride it on the street. Actually, check that. When we heard today that Kawasaki’s Ninja H2R – essentially a technology demonstrator set to debut at the upcoming EICMA show – was going to stuff 300 hp into its carbon-fiber-clad confines, we were equal parts astonished and terrified. While official specs are yet to be revealed, you can see a new set of images and some video of the Goliath right now.

Ram can’t build EcoDiesels fast enough

Have you heard the one about American’s hating on diesels? Well, forget it. When the number crunchers at Ram were forecasting sales of the trucks with the new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel, they anticipated the engine would account for about 10% of the sales mix. On the back of strong orders and sales in 2014 that number is being doubled for next year.

Watch the Official Music Video for Joey Bada$$’ “Christ Conscious”

With news circulating that his official debut LP, B4.DA.$$, is completed and awaiting a release date, Pro Era emcee Joey Bada$$ releases the visuals for “Christ Conscious.” The Basquiat-produced track features a laid-back appeal that lends itself to visuals that are equally organic and reminiscent of passed music videos indicative of Bada$$’s “old school” sensibilities. Keep an eye out for B4.DA.$$ dropping in the fall.

Blast Your Biceps To New Highs

One-Arm Dumbbell Curl

When you look at the biceps of former greats like Boyer Coe, Robby Robinson, Albert Beckles, and more recently, 8-time Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman you are bound to notice the incredible peaks that sit atop their massive guns. In fact, it looks as if they have biceps on top of their biceps! The question is, how can you get your “peak-on” as well? Is there a magic exercise or super supplement that can literally transform your bis into mountains? The answer is unfortunately, no! The shape of your biceps are almost completely determined by your genetics, and no matter how many concentration curls you do, if you are not meant to have peaked pipes it just ain’t gonna happen!

However, that does not mean that each and every one of us cannot improve the height of our biceps if we utilize the proper exercises to get the job done! Lying directly underneath the biceps is a muscle called the brachialis, which when fully developed can literally “push” the bis a little higher, creating the illusion of greater peak. Not to mention that a highly developed brachialis will give the upper arm an overall look of greater thickness and depth from all angles.
 
Although all biceps exercises stimulate the brachialis to some degree, in order to really target this muscle you must place the biceps in a mechanically weak position by using specific hand positions and angles during your curling movements. By doing so you will force the brachialis to take on more of the load when flexing the arm, thus bringing about further growth in this key arm muscle.

The Moves

The following are four of the best exercises to annihilate the brachialis and bring new highs to the bis.

1. Reverse Barbell or EZ Bar Curls (can also be done on a low cable and/or preacher bench).

2. Hammer Dumbbell Curls (can be done seated, inclined or standing).

3. 90-Degree Barbell or EZ Bar Preacher – a.k.a. Spider Bench Curls

4. Seated Overhead Cable Curls (can be done on lat pull down or cable crossover station)

Now that your knowledge has been “heightened” regarding the proper exercises to perform in order to effectively hit the brachialis, here a few routines that will get those biceps heightened as well.

Tinashe’s ‘Aquarius’: Stream The Full Album

Tinashe‘s much-anticipated Aquarius LP is now streaming a week ahead of its official October 7 release date. So, does it live up to the hype? If you like sexy, languid R&B with on-point production and vintage Janet Jackson-esque interludes, then the answer is a resounding yes. The talented 21-year-old carves out her own nice with a sound as fresh as it is comfortingly familiar.

So what are the highlights? Schoolboy Q-featuring stoner anthem “2 On” is still the ultimate ratchet party jam, while new A$AP Rocky-assisted single “Pretend” shows a softer, prettier side. When you throw sexy bedroom romp “Feels Like Vegas” into the mix along with previously unheard gems “Far Side Of The Moon”, “Bated Breath” and “Cold Sweat”, it’s hard to deny that Tinashe has well and truly delivered the goods.

Stream Tinashe’s Aquarius in full over at iTunes. This only works for readers in the US. Sorry, international peeps!

Concepts x Vans Syndicate Old Skool “Rat Hunter”

Concepts is set to deliver another collaborative sneaker, this time hitting up Vans Syndicate to bring fans a new Old Skool mock-up. The classic silhouette gets re-equipped with a washed denim upper, off-white toe hits on the toe and heel, as well as a checkered midsole and grey panels that imitate the look of duct tape. As always, Concepts makes a point of telling a story that succinctly coincides with the release, and the dialogue this time is in reference to legendary Boston-based dive bar The Rathskeller. As New England’s version of CBGB, The Rathskeller played host to names like The Ramones, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Sonic Youth and many more before its closing in 1997. The “Rat Hunter” sneaker will be dropping Thursday, October 4th for $90 USD, with availability being offered in-store and online from Concepts.
