I must not have put enough detail into what I was saying, what I meant by 'The general public seems to think theres a way of getting around free weights...' is that there are people that think that a machine will do the same thing as free weights, same results in a 1/4 of the effort. You are right t...

Depending on the machine universal machines are fine. But all your nautilus circuit training machines are garbage. Bowflex which is owned by nautilus is garbage as well. The general public seems to think theres a way of getting around free weights, but no matter how well they make a machine you won'...

Home Gym

I've got a pretty nice setup at my house. If anybody else has a setup share it so maybe I can get some ideas of things maybe I'd like to add to mine. I'll add what I paid for products, the ones left blank my dad bought and I currently use. What I've got: -Bench from flat to military -lat pulldown/ro...

Dr. Squats not the administrator.
It was meant to be a joke, not to be taken in a literal sense.

Im a little confused on your response Ironman. Your saying that they tend to hide taking them but are more willing to talk about them? My problem with the whole thing is the online survey part since you don't know who is lying and such. Also it would be nice to get more info from where this data cam...

I'm not sure if Dr. Squat would be able to do that. He can squat 1000lbs but not even his superman strength would be able to stop spam.

You don't want to eat monosaccharides after you workout (glucose or simple sugars). Polysaccharides (Carbs) would be much better for the body since the polysacchs take much longer to digest it won't cause a 'sugar rush' like monosacchs would. Which causes a high production of insulin dropping the bl...

That's a tough one man. I'm high school age myself, and personally I do mostly body building. I'd have to say that powerlifting would accually have to be the best thing for them since that will put on the most strength the fastest as long as its intense. But since you don't have free weights that wo...

Their forum I find a little interesting. It's not organized and its all meathead talk where you don't accually learn anything. Lots of garbage goes through there (ex. viagara), its basically an example of a forum I was trying to avoid.

Don't get cheap grippers, they are USELESS. If you can easily pump out 50 reps while driving a car then its useless. Get Heavy Grip brand or Captains of Crush.

Thumbs up to slayer :), not a punk fan, some rap also works depending on the song... I like using headphones when I work out but it gets really annoying when the cord gets caught on something or if the mp3 player is in a location that it can be smashed/damaged by your carelessness. My mp3 player is ...

In my workouts I always go with water. It tastes abosolutelly disgusting but I don't gain needless calories since I already eat other food. It is recommended to have at least one glass of milk a day. If you would like that to be mixed with protein then that would be fine. But if you already have it ...
