"Rusty, I think you should start the week with your larger muscle groups first (chest, back, legs) followed by the smaller muscle groups (shoulders, arms). How long have you been lifting? If you're new, I would recommend a simpler general 3 day…"
"Hey Galileo..thanks for adding me! I was pretty busy with other stuff last night so I didn't have time to chat. Anyway, the picture in my avatar was taken at Garibaldi Lake, which is about 5000 ft. above sea level and about 1.5-2 hrs drive…"
"Skin fold calipers are probably the best/most practical way to accurately determine body fat % (other than hydrostatic weighing) and measure progress. Not sure whether your gym does this but it can also be something you can do it yourself (or with…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"Outdoor shirtless season is officially over for us up north (other than the die hards :p). Was in tights and 2 shirts plus a beanie and gloves for my run this afternoon. Though it was sunny, it didn't get much above 0 today and…"
"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.
"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."
"Thanks guys for the responses. I'm looking for some general ideas as to where to go next in my fitness program so this is a start. Sounds like I have to change up the exercises that I'm currently doing."
"I don't have specific advice for the plateaus your facing. In the past when I have hit those places I start doing different exercises. I will also point you to the Lean Gains site. I've not spent a lot of time on it but I know folks who…"
"But the issue being discussed here isn't whether or not sexual violence does or does not happen on campuses. The issue being discussed here is a specific case wherein a male student's freedoms and liberties have been taken away from him…"
"One fucking student is a start, just as the first Jew incarcerated for simply being a Jew was a start; just as the first girl kidnapped by Boku Haram was a start; just as the first aid worker kidnapped by terrorists and then beheaded was a start.…"
"Rom 8:29-30 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30and these whom He predestined, He also called ...
