1  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Injury and Rehabilitation / Inguinal Hernia surgery 2 days ago; doctors said 3 months before lifting... on: January 23, 2014, 09:54:41 AM
Is this accurate? I don't want to take any chances but what are your experiences with lifting after a hernia?
2  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Front squats...can't do them. on: September 29, 2013, 03:49:18 AM
Let first say what a humbling exercise the front squat is, as I honestly had never done it before but recently began attempting it and...apparently I have lots of imbalances because I cannot do it right. Even just the bar is painful on the clavicles. I am considering just practising with my bodyweight, any tips, links or anything that could help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I think they are mid to late 30's in age.

I think that they have only been training for a few years now.

I'm guessing they got on some of that there HRT, and claim natural

Actually they are 40. Look very young though.

Steroids and genetics. Impressive.

Thus far, nothing I have seen of the Hodge Twins is groundbreaking but they are amusing.

Dear sheila.
Your man cheating on you is not near as bad as it sounds, at his age he needs to be fucking something younger than thirty to still feel like a man, so you can either go through a costly divorce end up broke with no money, or stay with him and fuck me on the side.

lol  Grin

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Woman aged from 23 to 73 in a few days! on: October 14, 2011, 09:07:30 AM

These pictures may look like an attractive woman in her 20s and her grandmother.

But they are said to be the same person – apparently taken just days apart.

The young Vietnamese woman at the centre of the improbable medical case, Nguyen Thi Phuong, claims the transformation may have come about because of an extreme allergy to seafood.

Nguyen, 26, says she developed this puffy face and sagging skin in 2008 but was too poor to seek treatment. Earlier this month, doctors said they would examine her free of charge.

Nguyen’s husband, carpenter Thanh Tuyen, insists the story is true and his love has not faded for his once-beautiful wife.

Rapid ageing: A mystery condition has apparently caused Nguyen Thi Phuong's face to sag and wrinkle over a matter of day. She is pictured aged 21 on the left and 26 on the right

She has always worn wear a mask in public to hide her appearance from prying eyes, but she has now sought help from doctors to see if they can reverse the 'ageing' effect.

Displaying photos of a beautiful 21-year-old woman on her wedding day in 2006, Mrs Nguyen said: 'Five years ago, I was rather pretty and not so ugly like this, right?'

Mrs Nguyen believes her condition was caused by a life-long allergy to seafood.

She said she had suffered a particularly bad reaction in 2008.

'I was really itchy all over my body. I had to scratch even while sleeping.'

Phuong said she took some medicine bought at a local pharmacy instead of going to the hospital because her and her husband Tuyen, now 33, were too poor to afford it.

She said: 'After one month of taking the drugs, I became less itchy but hives remained on my skin.
Then I switched to traditional medicine and all the hives disappeared, together with my itching. However, my skin began to sag and fold.'

Mrs Nguyen then took another kind of traditional medicine to treat her rapid-aging skin problem - but to no avail.

Doctors say it may have been the long-term use of traditional medicines that caused the condition as they are often spiked with corticoids. These steroids speed up the effects of the unregulated remedies but could also have triggered the rare skin disease mastocytosis, where the body produces too many mast cells.

The couple do not remember what the medicine was or which pharmacy they got it from.

Mrs Nguyen said: 'We considered that it was our destiny and I quit treatment in 2009. Now I always wear a face mask whenever I go out.

'The skin on my face, chest and belly have folds like an old woman who has given birth several times although I have never had a child.

'But the rapid-aging syndrome hasn't affected my menstrual cycle, hair, teeth, eyes and mind.'

In 2010, the couple migrated to the southern province of Binh Phuoc's Bu Dop District where they rent a small wooden house.


It could be.... Lipodystrophy

This is a rare syndrome which causes a layer of fatty tissue beneath the surface of the skin to disintegrate while the skin itself continues to grow at a startling pace

It has no cure and leaves victims with loose folds of skin on their bodies as well as wrinkled faces and features of people much hold.

Only 2,000 people are thought to have the condition

Or it might be.... Cushing’s Syndrome

This can be triggered if a person has very high levels of a hormone called cortisol in their blood.

Common symptoms include weight gain, rounding of the face due to deposits of fat developing there and thinning of the skin.

It often occurs as a side effect of treatment with corticosteroids.

Women are five times more likely to develop endogenous Cushing’s syndrome than men, with most cases affecting people who are 25 to 40 years old.

Mr Nguyen continued to work as a carpenter while Phuong got a job at a cashew-nut processing factory.  Both earn a total of less than £92 a month - which means they cannot afford an examination at a major hospital in Ho Chi Minh City.

Tuyen said his wife's disease has not affected his love for her or their relationship.

He said: 'I married Phuong when she was a beautiful woman. I have followed her through her disease and have never been shocked at all.

'It's not easy to talk about one's own marital affairs. Just simply understand that I still love her very much.'

Mrs Nguyen said her husband's love is the reason she is able to persevere in the face of adversity.

She said: 'He still loves me like before despite the fact that I look old and ugly. With him, I feel more confident to live and work.'

On October 2, doctors from Nguyen Dinh Chieu Hospital in Ben Tre Province said they would examine Phuong for free and send her to the HCMC Dermatology Hospital if they failed to diagnose her condition.

There is already some disagreement among doctors over the cause of the rare condition.

Doctor Vo Thi Bach Suong of the HCMC University of Medicine and Pharmacy, said: 'She might have taken corticoid for a long time. Many traditional pharmacists use corticoid in their medicine, leading to side effects like swelled face and abnormally-growing skin sections.'

Nguyen Hoai Nam, another lecturer at the university, agreed that Phuong may suffer from the wrongful use of corticoid.

He said: 'A sudden stop in using corticoid could easily lead to Cushing's Syndrome, which is clearly seen through affected skin.'

However, doctor Huynh Huy Hoang of the HCMC Dermatology Hospital has doubts over this diagnosis.

He said: 'It's really strange. This is the first time I've heard of such a case of rapid-aging process on an adult. It's not lipodystropy syndrome.

'However, aging is not a common sign of Cushing's Syndrome either.'

Doctor Yen Lam Phuc of the Vietnam Military Medical Academy agreed with Hoang, saying the rapid aging could not be a side effect of a medical substance.  He said: 'It could be a totally new syndrome.'

Meanwhile Tuyen said that he and his wife do not dare to have a child, even though they have been married several years, because their lives are so difficult.

He said: 'Our only wish is to have some philanthropists or doctors help my wife to make her normal face again.'

Doctor Hoang Van Minh from the Ho Chi Minh City Medicine and Pharmacy University Hospital claims Phuong, could regain some of her previous beauty with medical treatment.

Dr Hoang visited Phuong this week at her house in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre where he said it was likely she did have mastocytosis. He said Phuong's face still swells and she is itchy with frequent diarrhoea, which are common signs of the disease.

There is currently no cure but there are many medicines to help treat its symptoms.

'She needs to be treated for her allergies first,' Dr Hoang said.

He added that his treatment plan could restore between 50-70 percent of her skin to normal and laser therapy could reduce the folds.

Dr Hoang said there should be more tests to verify his initial diagnosis and find any other diseases she might have.

After destroying the multiple meals frequency myth for bodybuilders, what about destroying the high protein myth for bodybuilders! Grin

Human mother’s milk contains no more than 5% protein. This is enough protein to enable an infant to double it’s weight and size during the first 6 months of life! After that, the need for protein DECREASES. Independent researchers around the world agree that the human need for protein each day is only 25 - 35 GRAMS. (about 1 ounce). Many nutritionists feel that only 20 grams a day are more than enough. Meanwhile, the AVERAGE AMERICAN eats more than 100 GRAMS of protean a day - 5 times the actual need!

I was at my friends store the other day and this juicer was there and says: you need 900g of protein a day! I said, that is not necessary but he told me he made great gains that way. Whatever, if someone wants to do that, let them, I find 100-150 fine but am also fine with only 50.

Its funny how you mention cars, when there are only 5or6 brands. Not a single company has broken into the car market in over 50 years. This is the fact of the open market. Again you can say what you want about so called liberals,

but must liberals aren't advocating communism, yes all conservatives pretty much rally around no government.

Hardly. Most conservatives rally around government force for their strange values, you shouldn't mix conservatives with libertarians.

SEOUL, South Korea — Two U.S. soldiers have been accused of raping teenage girls in South Korea in separate incidents, prompting U.S. military officials to apologize Saturday as they tried to ease growing public anger.

Army Brig. Gen. David Conboy, who supervises the U.S. garrison in Seoul, issued a statement apologizing for “pain” caused by allegations that a U.S. soldier raped a girl in her rented room in Seoul on Sept. 17. That solider — a private in his early 20s — is being questioned by police but has not been arrested.

Another U.S. private has been arrested on suspicion of raping a teenage girl on Sept. 24 in a city north of Seoul.

The top U.S. diplomat for East Asia, Kurt Campbell, apologized Friday for what he called a “tragic and inexcusable rape that took place about a week ago.” It was not clear which of the two incidents he was referring to.

The alleged assaults have prompted small protests near the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, while the Internet has been abuzz with Koreans expressing their anger. On Saturday, a minor labor party called for restricting the movement of American soldiers outside their bases.

The U.S. has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War.

Gen. James Thurman, America’s top commander in South Korea, said Friday that he has instated a curfew following “the incidents over the last several months.” He did not clarify his comments, but said the curfew would last 30 days.

U.S. officials are wary of an anti-American sentiment that could be rekindled in countries where their troops are stationed.

In 2002, the acquittals of two American soldiers whose armored vehicle ran over and killed two South Korean schoolgirls during training prompted nationwide protests against the U.S. military presence in the country.

In 1995, the rape of a 12-year-old Japanese girl by U.S. service members in Okinawa sparked one of the biggest anti-U.S. protests in Japan. About 50,000 U.S. troops are stationed in Japan in a post-World War II security pact.
