Kenny, I can see this is a subject close to your heart, and let me preface by saying the only person i blame for my failure is myself. I went in totally unprepared and in hindsight i think i should have attended my first meet as a spectator, i let my ego run away with me when deciding my openers and...

First meet failure!

So yesterday I had my first Powerlifting meet, and as you may guess from the title.... it didn't go well!

hmmmm.... this thread has got me a little concerned, i have a litre bottle that is practically glued to my hand and most days i could easily refill it 5 times or more.

I didn't think the water toxicity thing was that common, maybe i'm overdoing it slightly!

So I just got done watching Fat Head the docu-movie, It was (relatively) entertaining, although the information won't be new to most low carbers it was well represented by various academics including Michael Eades (author of Proein Power) My favorite line in the movie was "The Government's only rede...

One that was recommended to me was 'Fat Head' Didn't get chance to see it yet though so can't say if it's any good. I did see Food inc. though, I actually watched it a couple of times i enjoyed it that much! Is it wrong that I was feeling jealous about the selection of fast food places there are in ...

Unfortunately the federation I'm lifting in specifies a two hour weigh in, so I'm bound on that front, I thought two hours would give me enough time to get fluid, food, and mybe some kind of electrolyte concoction into me before i start lifting, but then i suppose lifting with a heap of food and liq...

After reading some old articles on elitefts, I did a bit of an experiment over the weekend, having been consuming around 1 to 1 1/2 gallons water p/day of the last week, I cut water intake at 2pm saturday and ate 1 lemon. (Apparently the lemon increases urination, this I can wholeheartedly confirm )...

Thanks for the inputs, I think i will cut out the creatine now just to be safe, if i remember rightly, it can take a couple of weeks for a persons creatine levels to come down after supplementing?

It's creatine mono that i was using which i think has the highest water retention?

creatine and making weight

Just wondered if anyone had experience/opinions on stopping creatine use to make weight for competition? I have my first powerlifting comp in three weeks and was curious as to whether it would be worth stopping my creatine intake now to shed any excess water weight? It's a two hour weigh in and i ha...

Been a long time since i made any decent progress, but finally some numbers that made me happy (although i was berating myself for not managing to get 3 plates on the bar for my squat!)

Squat: 135kg

Sumo D/L: 157.5kg

Having recently switched to sumo D/L i find it better suits my stumpy legs!

epigastric hernia

Due to a recent reduction in bodyfat, i have noticed that i have an epigastric hernia, or at least thats what i believe due to some extensive google based research! I have read that this type of hernia is rarely harmful, but my concern is that whilst squatting, deadlifting etc.... will this large in...
