Take Your Yoga Game to the Next Level

Fitness lends itself to quantifiable goals: a time to beat, a weight to lift, a distance to reach. But there's also artistry involved, and the opportunity to cultivate a skill and become a master. So when a challenge comes along that's as difficult to nail as it is awesome-looking, it's almost impossible for an insatiable athlete to resist. Hence the surging popularity of arm balances: yoga-inspired poses that require an impressive combination of strength, balance and focus—and happen to look amazing on Instagram feeds. see more

Should You Try LeBron's Low-Carb Diet?

Remember the days when we all wanted to "Be like Mike" and fill up on carb-filled Gatorade between quarters? Well, times change, and now everyone is talking about LeBron James' low-carb ketosis diet, inspired by his recent Instagram posts. A metabolic state in which the body uses fat as a source of energy instead of glycogen (the body's stored form of carbohydrates found in the muscle and liver), ketosis practically guarantees weight loss. And it's apparent that LeBron James' 6'8" frame has gotten a lot leaner—and, at least he hopes, meaner, per a recent article in Sports Illustrated. see more

No Excuses: A Bag That Doubles as a Traveling Gym

No need to skip your workout while on the road: The compact Technogym Wellness Bag ($295; technogym.com) has four resistance bands in two lengths (the shorter the band, the tougher the exercise) and grips for your hands, feet, and ankles to help you tone from traps to toes in even the most bijou suite. We asked Josh Holland, Technogym's in-house trainer (and sculptor of A-listers Madonna and Josh Groban), to suggest a top move. The only other equipment needed is a (locked) door. see more

"Clean Eating" May Just Change Your Life, and You Can Jumpstart Yourself with Just 10 Easy Steps

Hold whomever you like responsible—Gwyneth, maybe Gisele—but clean eating is one trend that's here to stay. The basic tenets? Consume whole, organic foods (namely produce and lean meats) while cutting back on (and ideally, eliminating) caffeine, processed sugar, alcohol, gluten, and dairy. "Removing these toxic triggers from your diet can make a hugely positive impact on your health," says Alejandro Junger, M.D., author of the new book Clean Eats.

The Track Pant That's Worth Wearing Outside the Gym

After five years of infusing minimalist streetwear with high-tech details, Isaora has launched a dedicated fitness line. The #TrainBetter collection includes shirts, shorts, and sweats with antibacterial fibers and laser-cut ventilation panels. The Training Track Pant ($115; isaora.com) is our favorite—partly because warm-ups that don't resemble JV uniforms are a rarity, and partly because this lightweight version has heat-bonded seams. "Fewer seams equals less fabric yet better strength in the stress points," says cofounder Ricky Hendry. That means they'll survive as many burpees as you can. see more

Earphones That Monitor Your Workout

Chest straps and silicone bracelets are handy tools, but they're cumbersome and—if you snag these LG Heart Rate Monitor Earphones ($180; bestbuy.com)—redundant. The multitasking device tracks BPM and maximum oxygen consumption (a good measure of fitness level) by gauging blood flow to your outer ear. The buds plug into a Bluetooth transmitter that audits calorie burn, distance, and pace. Press it once for an update mid-playlist. see more

The Best Way to Lose Weight Is Already in Your Kitchen

Raise your hand if you've sworn off sugar, cut out alcohol, and committed to a punishing gym ritual—yet those last five pounds are sticking around like an unwanted guest. A new study in Science suggests that even ardent self-deniers can't shed extra padding if the bacteria in their system is unbalanced. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis studied sets of twins—one fat, one lithe—and found that the thinner siblings had gut bacteria that spike the metabolism and suppress appetite, while the heavier ones were shackled with species that do the opposite. "If you have the wrong makeup of your see more

"No food is going to age you in a day, but a lifetime of overindulging in the wrong choices can certainly set you up to look older and wrinkle faster," says nutritionist Jaime Mass, RDN, LDN. see more

6 Training Tips From Tennis Pros

Every August, as summer slowly slips away, tennis, too, closes its season. And this historic sport's going-out party is packed with prestige. The fourth and final Grand Slam—the U.S. Open—marks, for some, a chance of a lifetime; for others, an opportunity to show the world you're still the best; and for many, a soiree of sport and leisure: Arthur Ashe lit up in the New York skyline. see more
