You should have your sugar levels checked, triglycerides (blood fats), cholesterol, HDL, LDL and their ratios, blood pressure, and cardiac inflammation through a crp test. Resting heart rate is another heart health indicator. The stronger the heart muscle the slower it is at rest. Many people with high blood pressure do flush red, not all.

It might be a silent killer but many times the signs are ignored or not noticed. I know a guy that would get exhausted walking on a treadmill at a good clip quickly.  His response was look a me I lift heavy weights. I'm just not an endurance athlete. I would say having no endurance for this guy was an indicator because he had a heart attack lifting weights.  There are basically two types of heart attacks. Simplistically speaking there is a clog or an electrical short.  

Testosterone replacement law suits are flying now because a study has shown they increase the risk of heart attacks.  They are unsure of the mechanism but some speculate it thickens the blood. If this is true imagine the increased risk taking recreational bodybuilding amounts especially if you are in your 40's or 50's?

Wow, these things cost almost $500 dollars with shipping.  Any cheaper versions anywhere?
53  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Steroid Induced Behavior Changes! on: April 15, 2014, 06:22:25 PM
Steroids increase aggression and confidence. It also gives you a mental feeling of well being. When you go off steroids and stays off long enough for it to leave your system you start to feel nervous and meek. Many feel depressed.  Then the psychological craving to feel right again you need a fix of another cycle. Anyone that says hormones don't effect your mental well being has never been around a boy or a girl going through puberty.

Didn't Gal ruin his kidneys with bodybuilding drugs and blew out his shoulder?

These things are really becoming popular.  With my luck I would snap my Achilles tendon pushing that thing.

 On a similar topic these two huge power lifter cops down the block from me were taking turns pulling their jeep with a rope for a workout.  I couldn't stop laughing watching the show.

I can't believe drugs were used for that physique. You can't do that naturally? 
57  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Happy Tax day: $100K-Plus Earners Pay 72% of Federal Income Taxes on: April 15, 2014, 10:51:30 AM
Actually very few people come close percentage wise to 90K.  I bet 95% of get big members make under 50K. If you are talking about a husband and wife combined making 90K that is another statistic. If as an individual you are making 100K in most areas of the country you can lead a good life. In parts of California, NJ, NY and Connecticut you would be struggling to make ends meet with that. In rural states like Tennessee you would be relatively rich.

Do you mean swimming or water polo? Or do you mean when a girl straddles your face and pees in your mouth?
59  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: what city has the hottest women you have ever seen? on: April 14, 2014, 04:58:26 PM
Manhattan, NYC. It's the most important city in the world. You walk around Manhattan in the Spring/Summer and you will see the beautiful women dressed to kill all over the place. The village is loaded with top tier models, known actresses, and famous women just walking around.

Her steroid use will catch up with her. Dead by 117.

Where is that path? I would be one day dream away from going in the water.
62  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: You know, I thought this would be a slow Sunday... on: April 14, 2014, 04:25:35 AM
I have the same thing wrong with my shoulder. I can't sleep in one position because of it. My pressing has gone to hell and I can't punch hard with that arm anymore. I just wonder for myself if surgery will make it better or worse? I hear the recovery is slow.
63  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Norway's to Open First 'Muslim Only' School, Replacing Ethics Classes with Islam on: April 13, 2014, 07:22:28 PM
This is the end of civilization and this is how it will back slide. Liberalism is the root of this. Trying to accommodate people who want nothing less than your demise. They cry for their rights as an immigrant when they don't have the same rights in their own land. Yet, they want their religious laws to be applied to the country they immigrated to. I give it 10 years before these countries become hell holes.

Dorian had it right, although they did help ruin my biceps tendon.

Dorian had it right yet both you and Dorian ripped a bicep tendon.  I like the old school method. It limited the weight used but it the back solid. 
65  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Midlife crisis on: April 13, 2014, 12:11:55 PM
30 years old is approaching a mid life crisis? I guess you're only planning to live to be 60.
66  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Random pics on: April 13, 2014, 12:01:26 PM
should rows be preformed like that? That's not how I do them

That's how everyone did them back in the day. Now maybe due to Dorian Yates everyone almost stands upright and pulls huge weights for a short range of motion. I never tried them that way. Just a different exercise.
67  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Random pics on: April 13, 2014, 05:33:33 AM
a few nights back, I had a ten minute convo with a girl with fake boobs... drunk, yelling in my ear about this and that... i'm just conveniently face-to-boob as she yells in my ear.  I can see the appeal, and I can see why some are disgusted by them.  I'm listening to her story and just weighing the pros/cons of fake boobs.  Still on the fence.

I hate fake boobs. They never look right. Why not get them on their back so you can grab them when you're doing doggy style if you're into fake water/silicon bags?  I see the new thing is to partially fill the water bags so the fake tits dance as they walk. 

I like them real. They don't have to be perfect.
68  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Great Arm on That Shoe Thrower on: April 13, 2014, 05:27:18 AM
She didn't dodge anything. The left majority press is just trying to prop her up. Now Bush actually dodged a shoe twice.
69  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Working out when hungover or on a major come down! on: April 13, 2014, 05:24:14 AM
Last time I drank to much I did back and delts in the gym. The deadlifts went surprisingly well but the workout nearly killed me. This morning I'm in the same situation and I am going to do nothing.

To much alcohol without a doubt raises estrogen levels and also shuts down fat burning drastically. It feels that it takes about 5 to 7 days to feel 100% performance wise. I remember when I was riding a bike 100 miles a day just 3 beers would really effect my bike ride the day after for the worse.  Most won't realize how bad alcohol effects cardio because they aren't doing anything that drastic endurance wise but without a doubt it does have an effect.

Moderation and limit the amount. I personally can function with two drinking days a week if I watch the amount.  Thinking about going down to one. I once went clean for 2 months and my endurance cardio wise went through the roof.

What type of animal is on his head in that picture?
72  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Chuck Norris is still badass on: April 12, 2014, 11:00:10 AM
Love the comments, as if Van Damme, Bruce Lee and Steven Seagal were/are real badass fighters, and Norris only an actor, lol... Between all of them Norris is the only one that had at least documented fights, against legit opponents, even if it was only light contact... The others are just movie frauds...

It wasn't point karate. It was full contact karate. Kind of like kick boxing or Muay Thai.  He was the middle weight full contact champ. He might have competed at one point in point karate at some time too. I believe the guy who replaced him as the middle weight champ was super foot Bill Wallace who had a lot of knock outs with kicks to the head.
73  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Roy nelson almost killed Nogueira tonight on: April 12, 2014, 10:14:58 AM
Is Jiu-Jitsu a dying art? Add wrestling to that as well. Why does it seem that all of these guys like Nelson, Hendo, Rampage, Shogun, Wandy etc.... seem to completely abandon the ground game these days?

Do you guys remember Hendo and Rampage in Pride? Ground game masters. Know, they have devolved into one punch, one trick ponies.

Editor's note: I love strikers and knockouts, but it still baffles me why these guys waste years of training.  Huh

Are they doing it just for the fans?

The game has evolved. Take down defense has improved to the point jui- jitsu guys will get hit to many times attempting the take down so they are cautious.  Also for jui jitsu guys it's getting harder to keep a skilled fighter down for that submission. Jui jitsu guys had a field day with guys with no take down defense and no ability to get out of getting pinned on the ground. Now it's a new game. The pure brazilian jui jitsu guys are finding their limited striking skills are a liability when they can't get a guy down. In pure jui jitsu nobody really tries to stand up as they are both going for that submission.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Lol at these guys
they fight for nearly 20 mins and at the end they dont know why they had a fight.

What stupid fucks. It was a brutal fight though.
75  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Would you trade 1 year of your life for body like this? on: April 12, 2014, 08:15:40 AM
A better question would be would you like to look like that 5 months out of a year for 10 years to die in your 50's? I don't see anyone lining up to look like Flex, Shawn Ray or a host of others how they look now.
