26  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getting a DUI for riding a bike while drunk? on: July 17, 2014, 06:28:08 PM
Retired LE( ok go ahead cheese balls let me have it..17 years in south Bronx,NYC. 5 years undercover)  in the penal law it states operating a motor vehicle while impaired..bike does not fit statute of a motor vehicle,although don't know how tolerant other places are of public intoxication( this could be of concern of some lame yahoo cop)

No, believe it or not a bike is federally Department of Transportation classified as a vehicle when operated on a roadway as strange as that sounds. Therefore it has to comply with all state motor vehicle laws including DWI or DUI depending upon state. Yes, in you can arrest a guy for operating a bike while being under the influence of an intoxicating beverage or drugs.

That chart above in my opinion is wrong and misleading.
27  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Obama is clearly pussing out on: July 17, 2014, 06:10:54 PM
Why should Obama or the USA do anything about it?

What business is that of ours?

Besides, what money is there to gain for the US getting involved with this? If it's the middle east, at least we know that we can establish military bases strategically surrounding large oil reserves that we can then negotiate deals for.

If Russian and the Ukraine go at it civil war style, why should we risk nuclear war with Putin? What would the US gain out of it?

I stand on the fence, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.

I think the USA should stay out of matters around the world that does not concern them or the safety of their citizens. If we do get involved in stopping terrorism across the Ukraine and Russia, we also need to get into:

Africa and stop the 40,000+ deaths that are occurring every month within the Congo.
North Korea and disarm their Nukes
China to stop the child slave labor and communist regime still present in certain regions
Iran and have them disarm today, not in however long they desire
Detroit

"1"

What oil deals have we negotiated by putting a military bases by a middle east oil fields?

We should have demanded every drop of oil out of Iraq but we didn't demand an ounce.  

I do agree with you that we have to stop being involved in others conflicts. We also shouldn't be the world's police men. We tried to pick a winner with Eqypt and got the Muslim Brotherhood in charge after the government  that was friendly with the US over thrown.  The Muslim Brother hood then went on a killing mission against Christian Egyptians. We provided arms to Libya rebels trying to pick a winner and those arms were suspected in Benghazi. Now we provided arms to Syrian rebels and those arms are showing up in Iraq. When both sides are no good we shouldn't be trying to pick a winner. Putin said in effect the same thing about Syria.

15 million before age 30. Calling BS on this one. Just buying real estate and businesses you would be set for life.

I always felt if you got a roof over your head and all the food you can eat then you are already rich. I was in New York City last night. I saw at least 15 people sleeping on the side walk. Be grateful for what you have. Can't afford a gym membership? Run and do body weight exercise. You will be able to kick most of the gym membership crowd's asses just by doing this.
29  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: The thing about natural bodybuilding on: July 17, 2014, 02:52:24 PM
I remember when I emailed the owner of a magazine about a subscription problem I had. I was shocked when he replied. A couple of weeks later I got group email from him and my address was included in it. I guess he's not too computer savvy. He wrote something about the growth hormone shipment is in. I thought, WTF I wasn't supposed to be included in that email.  There are a lot of supposed natural bodybuilders in his magazine.

Oliva was a full time regular cop. Coleman was a special auxiliary type II cop. Oliva did 25 plus years as a cop.  Oliva won his Olympia titles before he was a cop. He worked manual labor jobs for long hours prior to hitting the gym. I doubt any pro today could do that.
31  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dana White: Ronda Rousey can beat Floyd Mayweather Jr in a street fight on: July 17, 2014, 10:30:43 AM
You haven't got a fucking clue,a 130lb woman doesnot just "get down" and sub a male outweighing her whos an elite athlete.

You don't have a clue. I bet you have zero experience on the mat. I've seen guys like you time after time strut into the dojo thinking you can roll with the twink who has been rolling for years. You all leave and never come back. In jui jitsu it's common to find 130lbs guys taking down and submitting 230lbs plus guys.  He's an elite boxer. He wouldn't have an answer to her many chokes, arm bars and the rest.  Now if you want to have them box he would knock her out very quickly.

Just for the record. I have had 5 fights in the boxing ring. I have been involved in Judo and Jui jitsu so I have mat time even though I stink at the grappling arts compared to many. One last point. They are about the same weight.

There is No way in hell that she'd be able to hold him down.

Are you kidding? A world class Judo competitor couldn't hold down a guy who never wrestled before.

33  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dana White: Ronda Rousey can beat Floyd Mayweather Jr in a street fight on: July 17, 2014, 05:59:55 AM
In a boxing ring he would knock her out quick. In a the octagon she would get him down and submit him. He would have no defense. Two different sports.
34  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Hiding hrt from wife/gf on: July 17, 2014, 05:55:34 AM
Anybody see anything wrong with having to hide steroid use from your girlfriend?  What is the reason for that? You want her to think your physique is only because of your hard work and you want the credit instead of the drugs? Maybe because you feel embarrassed that you so desperately want to be seen as a man that you will use a syringe to achieve that perception? Is it because if word gets out that guys will no longer think you physique is an achievement but something bought out of the trunk of a drug dealer? I forgot everyone uses steroids in sport.  Roll Eyes

I use to carry stuff like wrist straps, neck strap harness, dipping belt and a workout journal.

36  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Recovery from Hernia Surgery on: July 15, 2014, 04:48:31 AM
At 54 you want to make sure you don't have a heart attack in the gym. With all the law suits flying from Hormone Replacement Therapy regarding heart attacks and strokes from how the low dose testosterone thickens the blood how could you consider bodybuilding drugs at your age? You have muscle but you don't look like a young 54. Concentrate on fitness which includes lifting and a lot of cardio.  Forget about posing to music in a speedo all grease up. It does sound like Prime said you had a major hernia repair. Exhaust your muscles with reps, form and shorten the rest between sets instead of the amount of weight. If there is a way to do an exercise harder do it instead of shortening the range of motion to make it easier. It will have you lifting lighter weights but with better results. You are exercising the muscle not to impress anyone including yourself.

That's how real women look. That 12 year old boy look that gets praise from warped guys in women is just wrong.

enjoy the concert and bars ...what concert is it ?

Bruno Mars, he sold out Madison Square Garden two nights in row. I just lucked out and got seats near the front of the stage on the floor of the 20K arena.
39  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 14, 2014, 11:45:02 AM
I did this work out today. Delt and tris. Hit workout, no warm ups listed. One set to failure.

Press behind the neck 1 x 6 ( went all the way down to resting the bar on my traps like I was squatting.)
dumbbell shoulder press 1 x 10 (all the way down)
dumbbell lateral raises 1 x 12
Single arm D ring laterals 1 x 12
Rear delt dumbbell raises 1 x 14
Barbell shrugs 1 x 12

deep full range weighted dips 1 x 9
tricep pushdowns 1 x 13
Rope pushdowns 1 x 14
Reverse D ring pulley kick backs 1 x 14

Weighted crunches with a plate behind head 1 x 50 (feet on bench)
Pulley crunches 1 x 40

I went for a run for two miles. The humidity was really high. I was sweating like I was in the desert.

Heading to New York City tomorrow for an over night mini vacation. The hotel said they can give me a free pass to a top shelf gym but I'm not working out. I thought maybe just cardio. I have run in Central park in the past but I think this trip is just nothing but pleasure. Seeing a concert in Madison Square Garden. After that I'll hit a bar or two enjoying the night.

In before a juice head says bodybuilding drugs had nothing to do with it. Of course it's good for your health to take a cocktail of varied drugs to look cosmetically buff only to lose it once your clean for months.
41  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 14, 2014, 04:52:11 AM
Saw the doc this past Friday and was given the go ahead to up the training (but not the weight).  Sooo...Yesterday I did 21 sets of back, 12 sets of biceps and 10 sets of forearms. 

Will rest today and train tomorrow.  I am trying hard to lose my perma-bulker look (think early Draper but not as massive!) and that will take time.   I feel pretty good today but then I am listening to the beautiful and talented Diana Krall... Grin

Sorry I am not familiar with your medical situation except for the leg talk. Hope you will be back soon. 21 sets of back is a hell of a lot of sets so I assume your health is relatively okay. Just keep hitting it and if an exercise hurts don't use it even if it was a favorite in the past.

 I bitch a lot because my mind is willing but my body seems really fragile at times. I'm always injuring myself but it goes with aging if you are training like you're in your 20's. I was doing power cleans yesterday and my left hamstring felt like if I wasn't careful it would rip. I felt pain and tightness.

I also noticed my response to training isn't nearly as good as when I was younger. I could literally get into decent cardio shape in two weeks of training when I was younger. 4 months away from running? No problem. I would hit the road hard for two weeks and the improvement was drastic. Last year I ran for about 6 months to be able to run 5 miles faster than a crawl.  Same with lifting.
42  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Anyone Been to Mexico City Lately? on: July 14, 2014, 04:34:02 AM
Incredibly unsafe. The tourist resorts are relatively okay if you stay there and don't wander into the towns. Mexico city you will get mugged or kidnapped if you are an American. You have a huge target on your back and everyone will know you are a gringo from the US. The Marines in California are banned from going to Mexico. The Police are so corrupt they will arrest an American on a made up charge and release you with a lot of cash. It's kidnapping by the Police never mind the vicious gangs and organized crime there.
43  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 13, 2014, 10:13:40 AM
Ever have one of those days where you just don't want to work out?  I'm lying in bed facebooking and getbigging instead of hitting back. Going to get off now and get that first warm up set over with.  It's a double today. Back and cardio. I hate one set to failure. It's so damn stressful. Two more days of this and I'm going to multiple sets again.
44  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Treadmills. on: July 13, 2014, 10:04:48 AM
I have seen it time after time in a gym. I guy walks at a normal stride in the gym walking to a treadmill. He then gets on the machine and walks slower than he did to get to the treadmill. WTF?

 Unless you are walking close to 4.0 miles per hour on an incline why not just go for a walk?
45  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: draper today. on: July 13, 2014, 10:00:40 AM
Are you sure that is a picture of Draper today? That book store picture looks like about 10 plus years ago.
46  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Shotgun!!!! on: July 12, 2014, 06:31:52 PM
I can shoot a handgun between good and excellent depending if I have been practicing. Slugs in a shot gun with rifle sights I'm proficient with. A shotgun shooting at clays I really stink at. The problem is when I miss never know what I did wrong cause I don't know where the shot went. I would love to have a side by side like this but I would have to hit the lottery.
47  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Sh*t talker boxer finally gets a beating!! on: July 12, 2014, 03:34:42 PM
for those of you who don't know, CHARLIE Z is mentally ill (severely). possibly schizophrenic. he is completely delusional. he should be committed for life or sent to prison. he's unstable and a danger to society. the only reason he stays relevant is because the boxing community is unable to see his mental health issues and cognize the fact that he should just be left alone.

the more damage charlie z takes to the dome, the more fucked up and delusional he will get.

So I'm reading between the lines. He will get hurt and sue because he is mental. Then his lawyer and him will drive away in luxury cars to the airport to go on top shelf vacations. 
48  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Shotgun!!!! on: July 12, 2014, 09:33:37 AM
The 870 & Mossberg 500 are your basic entry level shotguns. Cheap, reliable, easy to fix.
Lot of people buy aftermarket shit for them for various reasons.
I have both. Now they're collecting dust.

I shoot a lot of sporting clays and moved towards semi autos and over/unders. Have semi auto Berttas & Brownings.

870 is an excellent choice as a self defense shotgun. I know someone involved in the clay sports wouldn't pick that shotgun.  Shooting clays is another animal concerning shotguns.  I always wanted a side by side but the cost is through the roof.

Who is this idiot that thinks he can fight with real fighters?  That delusional fool needs to be hurt real bad so he can learn some humility. Until that happens he's going to continue to think he can fight.  Hope he tries that in a MMA gym where there is less rules.

If Wolf didn't have so much attention on his calves he would have been Mr. Olympia. Coleman calves weren't that great but they were much better than Wolf's.  Wolf is an amazing bodybuilder.
