On Friday 24th Pepsico announced that it would remove aspartame from Diet Pepsi and other diet beverages and replace them with sucralose. It follows the conference that happened in New York on the 19th February  that goes like this “And the number-one thing we see from consumers is a complaint about aspartame. Aspartame is just one sweetener, but it's the one that seems to get most of the negatives in the press and on YouTube. And as you research it, that's where the negatives are coming.”
Internet and social media is a great power. It helped to overthrow rulers and shake the nations, as it was the case in 2010 to 2012 in North Africa and Asia during Arab Spring .
But sometimes the Internet can be a hub for scaremongering and unexplained panic. Often an online presence, shared by a friend or a family relative causes us to suspend our original suspicions and literally believe everything the ‘internet says’
Life in a small town far away from the capital isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Add this to the fact that this small town was situated in Poland–a country still coming to terms with its newfound freedom. Add a mono-brow, big mole on even bigger lips and a stammer straight out of the Kings Speech, and you can imagine me as a child.
If you train at the gym or have ever watched a video of sweaty guys grunting (at the gym, in almost full clothing), then you are probably familiar with lateral raises aka side raises aka shoulder fly (that’s what Wikipedia says, I’ve never heard this one before).
This is the exercise I hated the most when I started training, as I’ve never felt anything, weights were small and it hurt my neck.
Well, even though weights are still small at least I know how to perform side rises effectively and I will share that secret aka magic formula aka mid delt buffer template with you below.
I think the best way is to use one dumbbell, or even better, cable pulley. Middle deltoid runs from the back to the front, so the best tension I feel is achieved when you train one arm (shoulder) at the time.

You probably know Nando’s. I mean if you have any friends or you lost them because you have kids, you know Nando’s. They have 300 restaurants in the UK, 9 of those just in Manchester.
This chain is so popular that in North East UK, two Nando’s restaurants are within a 1 min walk of each other.
I used to eat at Nando’s, often before going to the cinema. Not so much these days, but occasionally I pop in to have their flame-grilled chicken. Why do I write this? Well, I know a lot of teenagers or parents of teenagers who go there often (at least 1xweek.) Fellow trainer, Dan, who is not only a great personal trainer, but a very good human being, is a trainer and a carer to young guy with Cerebral Palsy, Stewart. Stewart likes Nando’s and Dan takes him there once a week for a sneaky cheat meal. Now neither Stew nor Dan is fat. Just look at the photo of them two below
