Gym is a public space. Every person working out at the gym is an equal member and has equal rights over the facilities of the gym. Just like any other public space, gym too has certain set of rules and manners. There is some basic etiquette that are expected to be followed by you. Let us have a look at some of the etiquettes you must most definitely know while working out at the gym.
It is creepy and gets creepier at the gym. You might not be realising that you are staring or might be looking with a totally non-malicious intent of not just learning an exercise by seeing how others do it, but it is still creepy and something that you should totally not do, especially if you have women working out around you.
2. Be Patient and Polite:
This is a virtue that comes of great use even at a gym. Often at gym you might need a machine that someone is already using. In that case, very politely request that person to alternate on the machine with you. If the person agrees, then wait patiently for his or her set to get over, and avoid showing your desperation for the machine either through your words or actions.
Working out means sweating, but you need to learn to keep that sweat to yourself. Always check that after using a machine or bench, your sweat marks are not left on it. If they are, then wipe them out immediately. Even better would be to keep a towel on the bench before you lie down on it.
4. Help With Weights:
Always keep an eye for alarm. If your neighbour or partner is in a tricky situation or is having a problem lifting a weight then help him or her out. Provide your assistance or support in case they need it, especially when they ask for it. You are not in a competition with anyone. So help others as well.
There is no alternate for good behaviour, whether at gym or any other place. If you behave nicely to people at your gym and show your well-mannered side, then people will like you and will also become your friends. Remember, it is all about growing mutually, whether your muscles or as a person.

Not all men are blessed with a complete beard, and many have trouble growing it beyond a certain patchy limit. The inability to grow a beard however is mostly genetic, and actually very rare. You may be just doing the wrong things, and being impatient. Here are some things you can do to boost beard growth and learn how to groom your beard well:
1. Help Your Beard Grow:
You need healthier habits to grow a better beard. Taking a diet rich in protein will help. Stress is a leading cause for hair loss, so try to avoid stress and get your required amount of sleep. Avoid smoking, as it cuts off blood circulation.
After a two weeks or so of patiently growing your beard, you will start feeling itchy, as your beard will be coarse and start collecting dust. This is not a skin rash, or anything to worry about, you just need to weather out your itch for a while and your beard will get softer eventually. You can use the best men’s face lotion to help alleviate the itch.
So if your beard game is not strong, then when you’re actually really trying to grow one, you may have patches in it. There are sprays, which are beard fillers, and you can use it to fill the patchy bits. Just be sure not to overdo it, and pick the exact shade of your beard.
Once you’ve managed to grow a decent amount of facial hair, then take care of it, otherwise you’ll need to shave off and start again. Trim it regularly, and use some tonics or oils to moisturize it. There are a lot of grooming products available. Castor oil is great to keep your beard soft and supple. You can apply it before bed, and wipe it off with a hot towel.
Chances that you can’t grow a beard at all are very rare, you are just probably growing it wrong and not grooming it well. But from today just implement these simple tips and you will be soon able to grow a beard.
Do you often experience some pain in your neck or back after a long day in office? Were you planning to consult a doctor about it? What if we told you that you can get rid of this pain without a doctor?

1. If your work demands you sit in front of a computer all day long, do the following:
Keep your arms and wrists straight and level with the floor
Keep the mouse close so you don’t have to stretch your arm too far
Keep the top of the screen at the level of your eyes
2. If your work requires you to stand a lot, wear shoes with good support and cushioning.
3. Always keep your shoulders aligned with your ears. Remind yourself of this every time you lean forward, crane your neck, or tilt your head backwards.
4. Do not sit cross legged. To maintain the right posture, either keep your feet flat on ground or place them on the footrest below your desk.
5. Use a lumbar support pillow. It will make sure you always sit straight. You can also use a folded or rolled-up towel. for this purpose.

7. Do not sit in the same position for too long. Keep moving back and forth from time to time, while keeping your back straight.

Don’t worry, it’s never too late to start being healthy! All you need to do is follow these simple tips and start figuring out other ways to spend the money you were going to shell out on your doctor’s fee. Maybe treat yourself to a lumbar support pillow?
Katti Batti, a highly anticipated Bollywood blockbuster starring Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut released this September, is exciting for a number of reasons. Not only is it expected to be yet another one of the smart, witty movies Kangana and Imran are famous for, audiences will also be seeing the leading man donning super fashionable outfits that will surely give the men of India something to think about. The collection belongs to a line of clothing called Parx and is an exclusive line of trousers, shirts, knits and waistcoats and go really well with the setting of the movie.
Katti Batti is set in a college atmosphere and the collection is inspired by today’s dynamic youth. Bold and eclectic, this collection exudes vibrancy and style. It’s sporty and classic designs are versatile and fresh and also capture international trends. Imran Khan manages to pull off a global appeal despite sticking to his Indian roots! Here are some style tips you can borrow from Bollywood’s latest chocolate boy:
1. For a casual college look, you can pair a funky shirt with a simple hoodie. We see Imran wearing different coloured shirts like bright yellow and green with a maroon hoodie in different scenes, so you too can mix and match key pieces with each other.
2. If you don’t require layering and still want to keep the casual theme going, you can experiment with colours like Imran has. He’s wearing the same cut of full sleeved t-shirt in different colours and patterns with simple denims that look fresh each time.
3. For a slightly more mature look, adding a waistcoat to almost any shirt is a quick way to make your ensemble stand out. In the movie we see Imran wearing green and white shirts with a simple black waistcoat and owning it! So investing in a standard waistcoat is a good idea. You can even pair it with some full sleeved t-shirts.
4. If you want to go all out formal like Imran with Kangana at the dance, then pairing a black shirt with a black coat looks stellar. You can pair these with black trousers or if you feel like being a little bold then you can even work with a colour like maroon.
Imran Khan in Katti Batti should be every college going boy’s biggest influence in dressing up this season! Just remember to be chic and neat and play around with materials and colours and you’ll be the envy of every one of your guy friends.
Men! What are they, if not interesting? It’s funny when you ponder upon the word ‘interesting’, it’s a very subjective topic and everyone has a different definition. For some it’s dancing to music, walking on the beach with their loved one, being amidst green mountains, doing adventurous activities and so on. Being their adventurous self gets a Man’s adrenaline rushing! They are funny, quirky and whacky when enjoying their favorite adventure. Don’t you agree?
