Re: Reducing blood pressure (especially those who have)

Thanks for the info, doc!

BTW my father got a heart attack once.

Edit:
Sorry for asking again, doc, does high blood pressure have any relation to high blood lipid concentration (I don't know if that's the correct term, I'm talking about cholesterol, triglyceride, and the likes).

Re: Reducing blood pressure (especially those who have)

Wow that's kind of scary, Ken. Is stroke more related to blood lipid profile, blood pressure, or both? I feel getting mentally slower as I age lol but I hope that isn't true. I need to recheck my blood pressure. BTW I hope that your mother is doing well. PS: this made me think about taking AAS becau...

What kind of "damage" that can accumulate because of high BP, doc?

Re: Stacking, supplements and other things

Yeah, I wouldn't mind a few gram of Test myself... lol. Anyway, though you may have already known about this, I'd like to mention that creatine has been shown to help increase lean mass and performance: Volek et al.: Performance and muscle fiber adaptations to creatine suplementation and heavy resis...

Re: Introductions may be in order... (long)

Hi Khronos!

I'm happy that both you and John are of my height so I have people to compare to and know how far I could get. I wouldn't shoot my BW up to >200lb though, because I also rock climb and at that weight I'd probably pull chunks of rock out of the cliff's face! (kidding)

Re: Cleans and variations among them

I think they have a term for that John..., "Bigorexia" hahaha. On the flipside, it makes you strive to be better.

So I guess you've been training for a long time.... I'm just starting compared to you (less 2 years).

I could pull 130kg/286lbs with my back hunched like a camel lol. I'm curious how much training for olympic lifting (the one I'm doing) will increase my deadlift number.

I think you're pretty jacked already at 190lbs/5'8"!

Re: Cleans and variations among them

John, I just noticed that you're 5'8". Well, I'm 5'9" (technically 5'8.5"..., but I like to round it up to 5'9"). How long did it take you to pull 405lbs? And what's your current bodyweight?

Re: Cleans and variations among them

A question about form: in the video of the hang clean, and (to a lesser extent) the Clean the model doesn't reach full depth until after she catches the bar. In the Power Clean, she squats only enough to catch the bar, and then starts driving up again. This latter seems more efficient and effective...

Re: The Curls Question, Settled at last

I have read Arnold saying cheat curls are ok. As long as you don't "Cheat" too much. Just want to be careful on that lower back. Now that I think of it on non deadlifting days thats exactly what I will add to my routine. When my biceps and back are smoked I'll do some cheat curls. Great idea. Yeah,...

Re: Cleans and variations among them

So it's legs then. I'll start out with power cleans and see how that goes. This might be a very interesting thing. When I started deadlifting that changed my outlook completely. I thought wow this workout is awesome it kicks my ass I love it. My head is not bald but I'm about to be Mr.Clean. haha I...

Re: The Curls Question, Settled at last

BTW I read that "standing barbell curl" is a contested event in some places. Some will need your back to lean against the wall to prevent cheating.

Re: MSG

Reading that wiki article, it seems that it's not yet clear how dangerous the substance is. Are you taking the "better safe than sorry" route? Especially if cumulative effect is thought to be possible.
