Casual clothes are just fine cheap. You're dealing with stretchy fabrics that conform. Anything with structure (jeans, dress shirts, other dress clothes) are things that will look bad if you don't get quality.

Anybody with more extreme bodies (bbers or women with a big difference between chest/waist, chest/hips/waist, hips/waist) is going to have to pay attention to fit or get stuff tailored.

But that's ok, go ahead and spend hours in the gym to get that V, and ruin it by wearing a shirt that gives you a gut

good post, actually

Do you associate with a lot of powerlifters? Ever talk to them about how they feel the week after a meet where they set a few PR's?

Or do you generally just feel heavy low rep work isn't taxing, rest a few seconds and you're ready to go again?

Ever do a grinding set of deadlifts with maybe 6-7-800lbs?

Ever do a set of squats with maybe 500lbs to failure where the spotter actually has to grab you on the last one? Ready to go again after 2 minutes? More like 10-15 minutes just til the ears stop ringing and heartrate is below 100.

no, i've never been nearly that strong (my best squat is 405, deadlift 515).  i never felt a single max rep took so much out of me that i couldn't try again and get a similar number 5 minutes later.

i've done insanely hard sets that, yeah, after 4 sets (total workout) i was VERY sore for the next 5 days.  those were high rep leg sets though.

i think the variation between what people can handle varies greatly, and peoples' perceptions of a workout's difficulty even moreso.  this is probably the source of my confusion, and also why gym stories are so often misinterpreted.

LOL, no you are not fine after extremely heavy sets... LOL no way. It's like this, take a powerlifter setting a world record... it may take MONTHS to recover from the few seconds of exertion. Pumping till you puke is brutal but recovering from low reps is a challenge too. Nervous system takes a beating, mentally you take beating. My training partner set a PR single in the squat last friday, he did nothing else, warming up for 90 minutes, then hit the PR. He has trained for 30 years, competed at an elite level for a long time. He was shaking for a couple of hours after that... felling beat up all weekend. Cheesy Told me he needs to downcycle his training for several months to recover. This ain't no guy afraid of hard work, an absolute animal in the gym.

Platz did "deat sets" in the squat for high reps but he could only do this twice a month. A guy who says he trains to the absolute limit twice weekly is not going all out, I guarantee that.

honestly, i don't believe any of this

Middle class? My friend, on 90k I wouldn't even be able to look after my dog if it was just me and him. To be the SOLE breadwinner for a family of 4, pay all the bills and buy food, live in a nice area away from human garbage, run 2 cars and go on holiday once or twice a year you're looking at 150-200 MINIMUM. Between the girlfriend and myself we're hitting around 230 a year. And believe me, we don't live it up.

We all think that money doesn't matter. Well, let me tell you it is nice when a gal is rich. Oh, yes, no homo, but I always liked diamond rings so she let me wear a couple of 3 and 5 carat ones. Don't look gay on me, though!  Cheesy

this post defies "no homo"

20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getbig Gurus! Is this diet believable? Very low calories/protein. on: April 10, 2014, 09:30:37 PM


just cooked this up today, was pretty damn tasty:

0.  steam two small heads of roughly broken-up broccoli while following the remaining steps.
1.  pour a couple tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil into pan (had this leftover from previous meal) which has been raised to medium heat.
2.  dice a little onion, a couple leaves of basil and parsley, and couple sun dried tomatoes.  mince a few cloves of garlic.
3.  saute onions until translucent.
4.  throw garlic in, saute until golden.
5.  throw sun dried tomatoes in, along with about 1/2 cup basmati rice and diced, pan-fried chicken breast (leftovers).
6.  continue cooking until everything is heated through, stirring minimally to brown the rice a bit.
7.  once broccoli is done, season rice with salt and pepper, stir in parsley and basil, plate and serve.
