Tim replied to Jay D's discussion Running in the dark / minimal shoes
"Although I prefer to run on wooded trails, I stay out of them when it's dark. Not worth the risk  of tripping or even running off the path! In the warmer months there's also the additional risk of running into bears. I've…"

Tim replied to Matthew J Dorry's discussion What do you call your professor when they're a Ph.D., but they tell you to call them by first name.
"In my experience it depends on the prof's personal preference. Having been a grad student myself, most profs that I know prefer to be called by first name (applies to colleagues, grad students, undergrads). If you are contacting a prof for the…"

"Yusuf- thanks for the great response. You don't sound snobbish at all :-) Yes I am a natural lifter and agree that strength is more important than size. The improvements in strength (compared to size) were the most noticeable over the past…"

Yusuf Ahmed replied to Tim's discussion Overcoming Training Plateaus in the group Exercise
"Ultimately progress goes back to increasing overall volume (total weight moved; sets x reps x weight used) and how well you can recover from it(based on the realities of your lifestyle).  Understandably, with the time you've put in the…"

"You could just crank the heater up but then it's just wasting energy. Much easier in the summer by just opening the windows and not turning on the A/C."

Tim replied to Marvin's discussion Gains effect by self-pleasure? in the group Exercise
"Yes, there are studies that show T-levels do increase after a workout but as I've said, it is only temporary. The effect also seems to be more pronounced in younger than older guys, which makes sense as T levels decrease with age. Some…"

Tim replied to Marvin's discussion Gains effect by self-pleasure? in the group Exercise
"No..it's a myth! Sex or masturbation does not deplete T levels so it will not ruin your workout gains. However having a high sex drive is the result of high T levels. T levels do go up right after a workout but it is only  temporary."

Overcoming Training Plateaus

Hey guys, just want to find out some strategies to overcome plateaus in my training progression (specifically bodybuilding). I have been lifting seriously for muscle mass gains since late January of this year and have been noticing improvements in both strength and size over the past few months. Although I am relatively new to bodybuilding, I have incorporated core/strength training as supplemental training for a sport over the past few years (distance running). Currently I am not training…See More

Tim replied to Kevin's discussion Abercrombie advertising in the group The Shirtless Man
"Yes, I think this is disturbing too but it is not a new phenomenon as it is already happening in advertising geared towards women and girls (e.g. Victoria Secret). More exposed flesh, more $$! Note that in many of these ads, photoshop is often used…"
