Re: Where are you from and what sports/teams do you follow?

Here is a two minute youtube that gives as good a rundown of Aussie Rules as you can in two minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MY0vCUBg-0 The goal you see at 0:46 is probably one of the most impressive individual displays of pure brilliance I've seen in a long time. The guy who kicked the goal...

Re: Where are you from and what sports/teams do you follow?

College Football: SEC: Alabama. Well, now since I live here.. That Alabama/Auburn rivalry is intense! I watched a piece on ESPN about the guy who poisoned the tree and admitted it on talk back radio, man! I like to follow LSU's games, as I got a buddy in LA and the freshman punter for LSU is from A...

Re: BCAA

I always sip on a BCAA mix during my training... Is there any advantage to sipping on a BCAA mix during the day while I'm at work (sedentary)? What advantages could possibly come of it, or would I just be wasting money and better off drinking water?

Re: Where are you from and what sports/teams do you follow?

Living in PNG, I should say that I love Rugby League, since most Papua New Guineans love in on a life-or-death basis. I can assure you it is much more important than that. (I must admit I have liberally paraphrased a quote from Bill Shankly here). I tried really hard to get into Ice Hockey, but wat...

Where are you from and what sports/teams do you follow?

Thought I'd get to know the furniture around here a bit more, where is everyone from and what sports do you follow and which teams? Now I don't care how much you can deadlift, (and I can DL two fifths of fck all) if you don't follow or play team sport you're not a real man. I say that somewhat tongu...

Re: TimD

Cancer... what is there to say. I've never had it, touch wood, but I've been indirectly effected by it since I was 18. Lost a mate less than a year ago, had another survive it, and have another mate who is in recovery currently, I'm only 28, and my friends were all struck down 25 or younger. Sorry t...

I found out the other day that zucchini (courgette for some) is a fruit, not a vegetable.

Re: 5/3/1 and questions

I haven't read Wendler's book yet (still waiting on delivery) but I've read a heap on his blog and also elitefts. He is pretty adamant about the 2-3 assistance exercises and they should be "effort free". And I swear I've read him say "don't make the mistake of majoring in the minors" at least a hund...

Re: phosphatidylserine/cortisol blockers

I used to be a chronic night owl - I thank working/frequenting bars and nightclubs (and smoking a lot of pot) over the years for that. I'm in a day job now, and my day is fairly well regimented. Up at 5:30AM, walk, shower, breakfast 7AM, work at 8AM, training at 4:30PM and so on. Through trial and e...

Re: Critique my regimen (training, nutrition etc)

I had a lift today and did my Upper body bench routine, and decided to just jump into the free weights. Took it pretty easy, but knocked out 4 decent sets. Felt great, and started logging as well! Even took the time to do up a spreadsheet when I got home, so I'll be able to spew out some spiffy grap...

Re: Critique my regimen (training, nutrition etc)

I'll stick to my routine for now, and will go in to the gym next Sunday for some light cardio and will practice a few things like you guys have said, chin ups, RDL, good mornings etc. It's not that I don't want to bring them in, its just that I'm not confident enough to bring them into a routine yet...
