Standing relaxed.

Truth is, if you are doing any other pose in public and you're not on a bodybuilding stage you are a fucking cretin.

maybe IRL.

but in BB, its the FDB. almost everyone looks pretty crap in it..only a very few look good when FDB'ing.

In my personal opinion only cure for palumboism is to quit all chemicals and starve your body to lose all that palumboism tissue. Then do some moderate training with little to no roids.


once you've palumbo'd you are done. your guts are too big to be proportionate with anything.. the only possible way is to try to get try to salvage some kind of x shape..but we all know how that goes..thats how it went in the first place..

ironic how the pursuit of an ever better x frame results in an o frame...if only theyd been satisfied earlier...

oh well, its not me!..

everybody in that picture was on gear. Ben Johnson was the poster boy/dr evil of roid use circa 1988. Now every other athelete dwarf's him and people ask 'I wonder if he/she is on roids?'

typical gb reply.

wrong,. carl improved from 9.99 to 9.86 OVER 11 years of competing at the top level. his 200m didnt improve at all over that got slower.

carl tested positive to a stimulant which at the time was banned in certain doses, but it got reviewed and the dose raised a huge amount, as it was basically a cup of coffee. what he had tested for was beyond minor... it was a joke amount. he wasnt the only one.

christie was one of those who got done for test based hormones..carl never did.

others in that final tested positive for drugs, but not all of them.

people exaggerate what they dont know, and drugs give you about 0.5s over 100m improvement, and it was rife in the 60s and 70s.. and if u call BS then compare womens times over the last 20 years to that of the 20 before that..and also compare junior and youth times.. youll see that the juniors have steadily improved, and mens have abruptly stalled..and womens have gone backwards.

what that means is that there are still some cheats, but nothing like there was..and if they do cheat, its on a compound that isnt giving 0.5s like dbol and test did.

ben johnson was on a bombs FFS.

ben went from a 10.2 runner to 9.79 inside 5 years...well into his 20s.. thats the cheat right there.

it took another 12 years to match 9.79 but mo greene was on the doubt about it..but didnt get busted. Still, others ran 9.84, 9.86 etc..

20 years later, talent meets cheat..ben was a 10.2 runner at best, and the best athletes of his time were running 9.92. So it makes sense that it takes another 20 years to have the best talent running sub 9.8 and 9.7.

both ben's and greene's times were aided, and stand out.. the rest have been simply not good enough in a day where top athletes go for dollars in other sports.

im so sick of people making dumb statements about drug use in athletics, when they dont know. not everyone uses drugs you know, and some people have conscience and integrity, and loads of talent..they are running sub 10 before they are 20...and low 10s at 16, 17... thats not a human incentive to want to cheat when you are that good already.

750 now, swear to good its true, compare date on biceps shots i posted, I think I was so depleted from starving myself and low cal from diet before cycle that when I ate proper I blew the fuck out

750 mg and you are a first time user?

no wonder you are feeling insane... i took 50mg first course...put on 4 kg over 10 weeks.. felt ok..definitely felt better, got bigger.

in fact never in the first 5 years did i go above 750mg...and i put on 70lbs...

by using so much now, you'll limit the gains later..without doubt...i had to increase amounts each time i cycled..and then after a few years, it got to the point where even on a gram the gains were barely noticeable...

so i crank it right back these days and only do it every 2 years or so, mild doses, and get some quality, but relatively minimal gains, when compared to my late teens/early twenties...i was growing solidly on 50mg of sustanon a fortnight..with good strength gains also.

mind you, i trained hard, disciplined, and regularly...i notice that most guys dont really do those three things.. their definition of hard isnt actually hard...lots of sub maximal sets, loads of rest, hours in the gym.

i couldnt force another set out after 45-60mins..not at hard effort...

probably could have done a load of tired sets.. but they dont make you grow.

Debating taking it and wondering who actually takes it and believes in it. Benefits in fat loss??

adelaide university did a study on its benefits in about 2010..testing over a long time frame against many of its claims.

the conclusion: it does absolutely nothing. it did appear to have some benefit for pregnant women in some area, but it was very minor.

the health food stores and chemists here are overloaded with fish and krill oil... and people are buying it...

9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Working out while sore from previous workout? on: March 27, 2014, 02:51:33 PM
I did a really intense chest workout some days ago, starting with heavy bench pressing using explosive movements, followed by slow negatives, then followed that with less and less weight until I was bench pressing a small amount - totally exhausting the muscle.

Essentially I did hit training combined with volume.

I followed the benching with lots of indirect work - right down to push-ups.

The result is, days later I am still sore - something I haven't experienced in years of working out.

I am eager to workout again, however I am not sure if it is counter productive to do so if the muscles are still sore - despite days passing.

Any thoughts?

lol. hit combined with volume..

you cant do hit if there's volume...

period. you clearly dont understand what hit is.

its ok though, most people dont..and thats why they dont see decent results or criticise it.

its pretty simple really...intensity is the largest amount of work over a certain time, that u can handle... if u then do more work after that, you havent done hit...hit becomes "not hit".

Compound movements yes, but not 6-8 range. That's not enough work for the muscles in order to stimulate muscular growth. More like 10-15 reps a set, squeezing and holding the muscle in its contracted position for about half a second each rep.

Think about it - you do say 4 exercises per body part for 3 sets of 15 reps (on average for the sake of argument) - that a total of 180 reps per body part. Half a second squeeze each rep means the muscle is in it's contracted position (time under tension) for a total of 90 seconds. Add to that the negative part of the rep which is where the muscle gets torn down and you've got yourself a proper workout where the muscles have suffered significant stimulation in order to grow back bigger (with diet and sleep of course, plus drugs if you decide to go that way).

6-8 reps in a set simply won't cut it. You'll probably get stronger that way, but not bigger.

the contracted position isnt eh position that makes it grow. the position where its strongest, and handles the most force, is the sweet spot.

and when i say force, i mean amount of work in a certain time..

so for biceps its easy, its the mid point in a curl- thats when the weight has the greatest force, AND when the biceps is strongest.

for pecs, its just past half way for most people, the point where the elbows are the greatest distance from the body but not lower than the body (thats when its mechanically disadvantageous).

free weight flyes are only stimulating for about 1/3 of its range..the other 2/3 the weight is either above you, or bringing your elbows below you.. pretty useless exercise really.

why would anyone want to spend their energy on portions of a rep that arent useful?..

I always forget that Dexter Jackson won a Mr. Olympia. So forgettable.

if being a massive human is important to you, maybe you should watch wrestling or basketball?..

mr.o is about perfection. not mass.

oiled up massive piles of synthol and gh induced slabs of muscle is just a mess.

13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Stay away from machines on: March 14, 2014, 03:37:42 AM
What destroy the joints/tendons is not the fact of doing free wieghts or machines. Actually only reason people screw their knees and joints is because they only care about moving lots of weight regardless of the form...
Dont lift for ego, put some managable weight and do perfect form. I like high intensity high reps...

yep. the muscle doesnt know the difference between what you are doesnt have a brain. it just knows stress.

fact is that free weights arent as effective as certain machines that have cams and cables.. because you can only work against gravity and where your skeleton puts a pivot.

leg press is superior to squats for leg development, and cable curls with a cam superior to free weight leg curls. any pec excerise that works on bringing the arms across the body through the shoulder as a pivot is superior to bench press, and so on..

anyone who says machines are better than free weights just doesnt understand mechanics of movement and where the muscles insert relative to the skeletal pivots,.
thats why physios, doctors and body professionals etc have degrees, and weight trainers generally are dumb fucks..leave the science to the scientists and stop making shit up that you dont understand.

even better, study some kind of engineering or physics and then see if you still believe what you do.

and guns are highly restricted in germany yet they have shootings regularly

DO ... THE ... RESEARCH....

Nah. Those shootings occur once or twice a month. And the media jumps on that with around-the-clock coverage, the talking heads chime in, Piers Morgan invites a few victims' family members, and the foreign media makes it seem America is some giant warzone.

I've been there 30 years, never seen a bullet or a shot fired near me. And I've been in most of the major cities, including hot ones like LA and Detroit. It's all liberal bullshit. A country of 315 million, in which more than half own firearms, and you get maybe 5-10 mass shootings a year. That's a drop in the bucket.

try researching it, like i did.

the facts dont going from what's publicly available on the subject.

i suppose that's a global conspiracy?

The definition of criminal is to break the LAW. A law would say give up your guns. What do criminals do again? IGNORE THE FUCKING LAW. I don't get why this is so hard for the anti gun fools. So you take the guns away from those who are most unlikely to use them for crime... but let the criminals keep theirs. Fucking brilliant.

If there was a SINGLE legal gun carrier in this crowd... no where near this many people would have died... be it law enforcement or civilian. Same with Virginia or Fort Hood etc. The problem was the lack of guns IN THE NON CRIMINALS HANDS.

because when its law, guns become difficult to get. and additionally, gun crime might exist, but people dont end up in shoot outs.

why is this so difficult for gunners to get?

imagine the cold war with no nukes... and you start to get the idea.

lol. very convenient to correlate a psychopathic dictator with gun if they were directly related...

are you saying that none of them wouldve raped their peoples if their peoples had a right to arms?...cos thats a looooong bow. and completely horeshit.

28 is still less than the 32 that Korean guy killed and 20 wounded at Virginia tech
and he was one guy with a .22, not a mob
guns ftw

wow it seems that the gun nuts think that if guns werent illegal, the carnage wouldve been worse.

well they arent illegal in the US, and people are shooting each other left right and centre.

and massacres happen frequently.

and in countries where there are strict gun control, massacres and shootings are quite rare.

what part of logic am i missing?

(and i am talking comparative rates, not absolute, so its a per person basis)..
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Client 18 days out on: February 26, 2014, 12:45:39 AM
protein 350 = 1400cals, fat 50 = 450 cals, carbs 250 = 1000 cals..

thats 2850cals..

and he weighs 182 lbs?  so his BMR is about 1900 cals... he's consuming 950 cals more than his BMR every day..

adjusting the BMR to account for weight training, he'd have to get 3600 cals just to maintain his weight and condition.

seems to me that he'd have to reduce his energy spend or up the cals in order to retain mass over the next 18 his bfat is already really low...not going to burn much more there..<edit: it did seem that way at first, but not so according to the math>

lets say he can lose another 5 lbs in fat, thats a deficit of 20000 cals...he'd be on a daily deficit of 900cals right in 18 days thats 16000 cals...<edit- got the calc wrong>

conclusion..he'll lose 4lb of fat and should retain all his muscle

do you cycle his nutrient intake?..

i think u got it about right...after i fixed my looked like you got him in too much deficit at first (when i idd the calc wrong)

c5, c6 and c7 vertebrae damage. disc bulges and impinges on nerve. its possible to lose the tricep, bicep and forearm completely.
i lost a major chunk of my right tricep. the forearm pain was incredible. had 2 discs replaced. forearm is usually c6 mostly.

get to a CT scan and MRI asap before it becomes worse.

just go for his body, cant dodge a body shot.

you havent been in any fights have you?

when someone kicks, you just grab the foot/leg, force to the ground then go ape shit at the head.

if they go for a body shot with fists, you smash their head as they come in.

rule of street is..head head head.. in the grapple you just go for a lock..goodnight.

this video is bullshit anyway...its a boxing match for video..a real fight is ferocious and just a bouncing around and respecting distance bullshit.
