Tim commented on Steven C.'s group Exercise
"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…"

Tim replied to Scott L Ferrell's discussion I finally did it in the group The Shirtless Man
"Wow! What's with this discussion? To me this sounds like a great male bonding event, nothing gay about this."

Tim left a comment for Galileo
"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…"

Tim replied to Rusty Rogers's discussion De-Moobification in the group Exercise
"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…"

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…"

Tim replied to Tim's discussion Overcoming Training Plateaus in the group Exercise
"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…"

Tim commented on Bruce Uall's group The Shirtless Man
"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 commented on Bruce Uall's group The Shirtless Man
"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…"

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."

Tim replied to Tim's discussion Overcoming Training Plateaus in the group Exercise
"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."

Nathan Kemp replied to Tim's discussion Overcoming Training Plateaus in the group Exercise
"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 logical conclusion of your stance is State Enforced discrimination. Mandatory reporting by doctors. Your BMI is too high, you've been buying black market sugar, why has your gym card not been accessed in the last 15 days, comrade? Fat…"
