You know what we don't have enough of around here? DeflateGate Articles!
I, for one, just can't get enough of them. So I decided to spend a little time with an internet search engine of choice (your mileage may vary) and scoop up as many DeflateGate articles as I can, since Marima's links have been a little scant in that area of late....
Now I'm not knocking Marima at all here. Her links are THE GOLD STANDARD, and in fact I'll even try to emulate her formatting as much as I can. Nothing of course, can compare to the original.
Now this could have taken a REALLY long time, but thankfully, the Wells Report assured me that Deflate only has one meaning, so it was a quick matter of sticking that little word in and simply reaping the harvest. Where I could, I also included the date of usage.
So for those people that can't get enough, here's everything you ever wanted to know about deflating.
Deflate as it pertains to working out:
The pumped up feeling you get after you exercise is caused by an increase in plasma within your muscles. This feeling will go away in as few as 30 minutes after you finish a weight-training session or it could take up to seven days for your muscles to return back to normal.
You pick the right basic moves you can pile a lot of weight on, but then it is so heavy you need to use your shoulders and triceps more than your pecs to get the weight up. Add the typical turning the flat bench into a decline bench by raising your butt off the bench, and all you get is just more of the easily developed lower pecs, not high, round Arnold pecs.
Why do I look jacked while working out and for a few hours after but then that night and day after it looks like i never did anything.
Deflate as it pertains to losing weight through diet or exercise:
Extra fat around your tummy can not only be hard to get rid of, it can be dangerous to your health. The visceral fat that makes up a significant portion of belly fat is linked to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and insulin resistance. Although spot reduction isn't possible -- you can't solely target stomach fat -- there are many exercises to burn fat throughout your body and tone the core muscles. This will help you deflate the spare tire and sculpt firmer abs.
Just remember: Big game, big workout. Perform a high-volume full-body routine with a high-intensity cardio session a couple of hours before the game. The workout (shown below) will help deplete your glycogen stores. In addition, intense cardio has been shown to burn twice as many calories for up to twelve hours after the workout. Basically, all the food you shuttle in will help grow your muscles and not your waist.
While it would be wonderful if you could chow down on a certain fruit or vegetable and then watch your belly deflate, the truth of the matter is that no miraculous fat-zapping food exists. There are, however, foods that amp the metabolism, the fat-burning mechanism that converts the fuel from food into energy needed by the body to perform necessary functions.
Katie asks: I've recently started training for a marathon and, for the most part, I'm enjoying the results both in terms of the way I feel and in the shape of my body. But here's one thing I don't understand: Why is my butt deflating? I'm a pear shape, and I've always had big quads and a full, womanly behind.
Have you been giving your scale the cold shoulder? Convinced that knowing how much you weigh — actually seeing the numbers on the scale in black and white — will totally deflate you? If so, you have "scale-itis," the word we use to describe total scale avoidance.
With your busy lifestyle there never seems to be enough hours in the day, right? You don’t have enough time to go to the gym. You don’t even have time to stand up away from your computer. It can be difficult to find time to exercise but it’s important to be active. The most commonly heard body image complaints are spare tire, muffin top or fat in the abdominal area.
Deflate your muffin tope with the roll-up Hold a resistance band taut between hands and lie on the floor face up, with legs extended and arms overhead. Pull abs in, tuck your chin, lift arms toward the ceiling, and roll head, shoulders, and torso up and over your legs as far as you can. Keep heels firmly on the floor and reach hands towards your feet. Pause, then slowly roll back down. Do 5 to 8 reps with 30 minutes of cardio 5 to 6 times a week.
To be honest I thought as soon as Caden was born my stomach would just deflate back down instantaneously. I was in for a rude awakening. Why Did I Still Look Pregnant? My stomach did not magically deflate.
Deflate as it pertains to losing weight and breasts:
Add cardiovascular exercise to your weekly routine. Aim to get at least 150 to 300 minutes of moderately-intense or 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous physical activity per week to promote fat loss. Lose weight at a slow and steady pace. Loosing weight too fast doesn't give the skin time to shrink back and causes your breasts to look deflated and droopy. Lose no more than 2 pounds per week. Wear a supportive bra to prevent the ligaments that support your breasts from stretching as your breasts move. This helps keep them looking lifted and firm.
Breasts change in size and shape over the course of your lifetime. They swell with your body during pregnancy and they diminish with excess body fat when you lose weight. These life changes and the march of time can decrease skin's elasticity, weaken chest wall ligaments and leave your breasts looking deflated or saggy. While you won't be able to correct major breast sagging on your own, some lifestyle changes can make your bust look fuller and tighter.
BTW, I also learned that Breast Implants can deflate....
Deflate as it pertains to bags under your eyes:
Whether it's too little sleep or an unexpected allergy attack, baggy eyes can pop up at a moment's notice. You can help eliminate unsightly eye bags by using short-term solutions that deflate the bags under your eyes for a smoother, more youthful appearance. These preventative techniques will make your eyes look less puffy and tired.
Some creams tighten up saggy under-eye bags with a cooling effect. "Allure" calls Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator the best eye cream for puffiness; it contains caffeine, a skin-tightening agent, and a cool ceramic tip -- permanently chilled via NASA technology -- that instantly helps to deflate bags.
Eye creams that use vitamin K as an active ingredient may increase circulation around the eye area, deflate puffy eyes and make the eye area look brighter, says writer Emily Hebert in "Beauty Tip: Undereye Circles Cure" at Elle.com. You can purchase eye creams that contain vitamin K at drugstores or high-end makeup stores.
If your swollen, puffy eyes are the first thing people notice, it’s time to deflate them back to normal size as quickly as possible. Puffiness is caused by excess fluid, so diffusing it allows the skin to return to looking rested and refreshed. Using some basic household items and arctic blast temperatures, you can instantly see an improvement in the delicate skin around the eye. Just don’t be too rough, or the skin could swell even more.
I think we can all agree with Ted Wells, that any other use of Deflate is simply ludicrous. How dare they try to insult our intelligence?
Now if I can only learn more about Dorito Dink....
