Then they go on to spill more of it on the gym counter than they actually consume because of trying to use the large plastic scoops to put the powder into the opening on a regular plastic water bottle. Roll Eyes

It never dawned on them to grab a piece of paper and make a funnel.

Can't stand posers that think they are hard core because of their gym bag full of shit that they lug around with them. The bags are a waste of space on the gym floor along with the people who bring them.

What kills me are the guys who bring their whole jug of protein powder or the whole can of pre-workout stuff, instead of just carrying one serving of each that they need for their workout.

This planet fitness crappy rule" its taking over every gym now   but why ?

I mean you buy a gym bag at Golds and then you cant take it to that very same gym unless you leave it at the locker? whats the use for it then ?  so if I need wrist/knee wraps etc I have to carry them around on my hands or walk to the locker room back and forth ?


I already told one of the staff that I need my gym bag as part of workout and is not preventing anyone to mind their business so They can give me my money back and I go somewhere else





what do you think about this 'rule"?





WoooSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

That rule hardly started with Planet Fitness. When I joined Bally over 20 years ago, that rule was there. And, as has been mentioned, it's because people steal the collars, small plates, and even some of the lighter dumbbells.

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it's “disparaging” to Native Americans.

“Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision.

Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise.

The Redskins are expected to appeal.

But opponents of the name were quick to pounce, expressing hope that it will lead Snyder to reconsider his devotion to the historic name of the team.

“I hope this ruling brings us a step closer to that inevitable day when the name of the Washington football team will be changed,” plaintiff Amanda Blackhorse said, according to Politico. “The team's name is racist and derogatory.”

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid called the team name "racist." He went to the Senate floor just after the trademark decision was made and said the team will be forced to change the name.


From what I've heard, the patent office did this to the Redskins and Snyder once before in 1999, only to lose in an appeals court in 2003.

No it hasn't.  Obama's in office and that's all that matters.  You've been crying about him being elected for 8 years....better get ready for another 4 when Hillary gets elected

No, it's not all that matters. Having been in the same boat 8 years ago, I know that mentality can lead to disaster for the next election. Bush's reelection didn't lead to a cakewalk for McCain.

Exactly...at what point did Obama ever fucking say that he would pay anyone's gas and mortgage.  Soul Crusher once again crashes and burns

At what point did she say that the reason she turned on Obama was because he didn't pay her gas and mortgage?

As I read it, Joseph claimed that she researched and listened to Obama and found him to be fraudulent. So where is SC's supposed crashing and burning here?

I would love to see some tapes about Paul Dillet playing football.

I mean during his BBing hayday he could barely walk.

Dillet wasn't as big during his football days.

Tell that to a 14 year old  Angry pre internet and just finished watching Conan


I know firsthand. I was 16 and not only saw Conan but watched WWF Superstars every week, featuring Hulk Hogan, the late Ultimate Warrior, the Powers of Pain and other swole pro wrestlers.

Even then, I knew it would take way longer than a year (even with my state-of-the-art cement weights and Weider's Dynamic Weight Gainer, which I got from my best friend as his stepfather didn't like the taste of it) to get that size in a year, if at all.

59  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Were You Conned Into Bodybuilding? on: July 13, 2014, 11:45:16 AM
Did you as a young child one day stumble across a movie with a jacked up dude, or one of Arnie's old muscle movies, Conan, Commando...etc, or even Van Damme...or a poster in a magazine and thought "wohaa, this is how I want to be"....then later in your teens you bought your first Flex mag and before you knew it you could recognize all the top 10 Olympia pros from a back double bi shot. Followed all the weider principles and drank Mega Mass 2000...you loved it for the first year or two and then it dawned you on one day whilst flexing in the mirror that you are still light years behind your dream physique....why is it not happening? why am I although bigger than before, look nothing like Arnie or Ray...etc? and that's when the seed of AAS was first planted in that very moment in your head, and the rest was history.

Had someone told you the moment you subconsciously absorbed that image of your ideal physique told you, "son....this is a never ending road, no real human being can look anything close to this, to do so you will inject and swallow pills and eat and sleep right...and should you stop all of this you would shrivel back to oblivion in no time."



And what made you think you could be that size in a year, especially when they weren't even that size in just one year of training?

No. I wasn't conned into bodybuilding. Quite the opposite, from reading those pesky EVVVVIIIILLL magazine (only it was Muscle & Fitness, not FLEX),  I learned I was a beginner. I couldn't and shouldn't train the way the top pros and amatuers do. I started with the tried-and-true, three-day-a-week, three-sets-of-ten, full-body workouts.

There's a pro named Keith Williams who played in the NFL for a few years. Jim "The Future" Quinn spent a year with the Dallas Cowboys. And, Paul Dillett played CFL football.

So, there are a handful of bodybuilders with pro football backgrounds.

Man cannot make food more anabolic than nature can which is why i am not a fan of whey protein, its processed with heat giving it higher levels of  acidity  toxicity which is not good for the body then sweeten with artificial sweeteners, just drink whole milk.

The problem with that is lactose. If you're intolerant, you end up buying a bunch of Lactaid which negates the savings aspect.

Plus, I wasn't speaking about protein powder being more or less anabolic. The emphasis is simply on being cheap. With certain clearance sales (particularly at GNC), whey protein is cheaper than milk and eggs.
62  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jobs and bodybuilders on: July 10, 2014, 09:38:22 AM
everybody forgets, bbing can be expensive... especially back in the day before ugls, and even with Mexican/aussie vet products, stuff was expensive, and the risk of getting burned was very real.

not to mention the cost of food... and the cost of supplements back in the day (before discount internet commerce).

if you wanted a bbing vid to motivate you, you had to drop $40 on a vhs tape and watch that fucker till it was blurry.

it was quite the eye opener when I found out a very large number of the bbers I saw in the mags growing up were living off of insecure, financially stable girlfriends.. usually for about 6-12months at a time till they got kicked out and slept on friends couches till they found another poor dumb girl to max out her credit cards. (not to mention, many of them are coke/meth/pain killer addicts)

The operative words are "CAN BE EXPENSIVE". I can't speak on the drug stuff. But, as far as the rest goes.....

Food: Buy in bulk, when possible; go vegetarian if necessary. Milk and eggs are cheaper than meat. Get you other proteins from legumes and grains and learn which combos make complete proteins.

Gym: Get the cheapest you can find; dredge up them old-school cement weights, if necessary.

Supplements: Unless you can get them on clearance, use them sparingly with emphasis on protein powders.

best shape i ever got in in my life i was working in a gym/health club, lets face it,if a person cant get in shape when they r working in a gym thats a serious problem, big problem

I tried that almost 20 years ago and it sucked, as basically I was a janitor in a weight room. When I finally got my summer engineering intern job two years later, I made some of my best gains.

65  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Best Jobs for bodybuilding on: July 10, 2014, 08:51:46 AM
Construction worker is the worse job for a bodybuilder. A union laborer can have to do mandatory 16 hour shifts many times. Also between all the carrying, shoveling, and moving stuff it's exhausting work.  There is no way you're going to the gym after working on a bridge  for 14 hours.

Physical therapist is a great idea. Acceptance into a school demands high academics and SAT. That is something most bodybuilders are lacking.  Grin In NJ many are making over 100K. I know in rural states it's less but then so is the cost of living.

Many competing bodybuilders in the 70's that I knew from the gyms were steroid dealers. It's a felony and that could land you in prison now for years. Many of the pro's in the past didn't have jobs but were connected the paying gay crowd. Some even made enough money to buy gyms. Not that there's anything wrong with that. (Seinfeld)

That's simply lazy-man talk. Plenty of people have worked construction jobs (myself included) and make it to the gym. Some who train at my gym often just hit the iron in their work clothes. And, if I'm not mistaken, Jay Cutler used to sling concrete with his brothers in his younger years. Apparently, he found time to make it to the gym.

Why is it that bodybuilders are afraid of real jobs, I have heard many bodybuilders say that they are forced to do g4p, prostitution etc cause they dont have money, are they not aware that there are real jobs available if you are willing to work or is it that they are just lazy and dont like to work,






Bodybuilders aren't afraid of real jobs. Most have them. You are overemphasizing the few that do foolishness like gay prostitution and pretending that such goes for the bulk of competitors.

Ronnie Coleman was a cop; Porter Cottrell was a firefighter, as is Steve Kuclo. David Henry is in the Air Force. Lee Labrada and the late Nasser El Sonbaty were engineers. Marks Ruhl (believe it or not) sold used cars. Mark Dugdale owns a vegetable company in Washington (state). The late Don Youngblood owned a trucking company. Then, there's Lee Banks, who runs day care centers in Florida, where he occasionally dresses as a giant duck.

And that's just a small example.

Hahahah! To think he was a REAL cop doing REAL cop work, all when he couldn't even fit into a bulletproof vest, is laughable!

He was a real cop; and he was such before he became a bodybuilder. Sergio Oliva was a cop, too.

Why is she keeping the "cutler" name?

Most divorced women keep their ex-husbands' last names. Sometimes, it's for professional purposes (I.e. Tina Turner, Cory Everson, Kimora Lee Simmons).

He should be relegated to the NPC, along with little Phil Heath.

Heath won the USA (first try) with relative ease. And as a rookie he won his first two shows, defeating guys who were top Olympia contenders.

There's nothing little about Heath. He's Mr. O, three times running.

wow that looks like 2.83 heaths wide!!

Greg Kovacs was "wider" than Heath, too. I guess he should have had the Sandow handed to him.

Besides, to the best of my knowledge, Ruhl only won one show and got beat the next week by a rookie, the late Art Atwood. A year later, he lost the Maximus Pro to a much smaller but far-better-conditioned-and-proportioned Darrem Charles.
71  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is that an IFBB Pro? on: July 06, 2014, 10:31:43 AM
Paul makes little Phil look like a kindergartener. And everyone talks about Phils arms being so great.

I get that Paul Dillet did not have the best back, but other than that, yeah, he makes little Phil look like nothing.







Yet, he constantly got beat by guys much smaller than him (i.e. Labrada, Ray).

Dillett's posing was also atrocious, relative to his peers.

Let me preface this by saying that I wish Cena had not won the title last night...

HOWEVER, at this stage in his career, I think he makes a great transitional champ. Let him run with it for a little while and then have him out Reigns or Rollins over. Or even Wyatt.

Rollins would have to be built up slowly. If he simply beats Cena by cashing MITB on him, he could flame out quickly (ala Miz, after cashing the briefcase on Orton).
73  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: WWE Money In The Bank: With Barrett out, who wins the briefcase? The title? on: June 29, 2014, 09:07:54 PM
That's why the WWE is stalle and losing money / viewership..
Cena champ again...
They need to change it up...
Cena and his 5 moves.. boring..

The Cena-Orton-Helmsley triangle strikes again.


Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, and Kane were just fillers.

Antonio Cesaro and Bray Wyatt are heels, but they aren't associated with Helmsley and the authority; so, they're out (especially with Wyatt appearing without Harper and Rowan).

Roman Reigns isn't quite ready yet. I figure he'll feud with Orton, get built up and maybe win next year's Rumble.

So that basically left Cena and Orton. I went with Orton, because the heel force has been too strong, as of late.

I doubt it'll happen, but I'm going with Cesaro for the title.  It's a bit early for Reigns I think, but they need some new blood in the title picture.

CENA WINS; Orton gets split wide open.

I'm losing my touch here.

And, another popcorn break: Summer Rae vs. Layla (Fandango as special referee).
