  1. Glassons ditches skinny mannequins

    Needs to work on her serratus anterior imo. Srsly, I know a lot of 'real women' who both have 'curves' (some of them are just fat) and don't (like this mannequin). Stop getting so butthurt NZ, we are peopel of all body types, and we're told to accept that. This is one of those body types, so accept it. This guy has hit the nail on the head. It is all about proportions. Proportions on your Missus, proportion of happiness gained from said missus versus your money spent by missus, 40/40/20 etc. etc. Me personally, I'm all about putting a girls footprints on the ceiling

    Varisty B mate, I live in Dunedin btw. O-U!
  3. What's up guys

    I finally got that spreadsheet up, bro. http://www.gymnation.co.nz/forum/diet-nutrition/best-diet-articles-i-hav... This...this is gold! Play at a reasonably competitive level, top B-grade team (we won our league this year, woo!). Just dislocated my finger playing recently too, no more pulling exercises for a while haha. I play 3 or 4, what about you mate? Do you mean you were lifting before you started balling? Nice man, interested in how to get in to teams, if there are even novice teams for my age lol (25. i was lifting for last 3 years or so now just started playing a month ago though so lots to learn haha. Heard apparently YMCA got some casual regular teams might consider switching gyms to there Ummm not too sure to be perfectly honest, only ever played Varsity (I'm down here for uni) but I know there are heaps of teams/clubs bro. The oldest guys I've palyed have been ~50 and they were damn competitive (read: dirty) players. Recently rekt my ankle, so I'm preparing for a plyo regime over summer. General weightlifting, not even for strength particularly atm, eating at a deficit to try and cut weight so I put less stress through my knees/ankles. Upper body strength is key for doing work in the low post, deads and squats are far more important for moving yourself around (and sometimes against) opposing players though.

    Ah got you. I'm aiming to lose around half a kilo a week. On track so far but (after a week) I assume there are the equivalent of n00b gainz in terms of weight loss too. Thank you

    So should I be aiming for fewer calories? Very keen to see your spreadsheet too, nutrition is such an interesting and integral part of bodybuilding
  7. What's up GN. About 6 weeks ago I sprained my ankle the worst I've ever done it playing basketball. Took 4 1/2 weeks just to be able to walk without a limp, had x-rays done at the time to confirm that it was just ligament damage rather than anything more severe. It has now been 7 weeks since my injury and there is still noticable swelling around the affected ankle (it's my right ankle). Physio says just time and stretching will reduce swelling, as well as low-impact movement such as walking or the stationary bike. He cleared me from squatting/deadlifting etcetra and shooting around. I understand that time will be the best healer, but do any of you have any tips for speeding the process up? Would love to be jumping about on the hardwood again ASAP. Cheers team!

    The one from this website http://iifym.com/tdee-calculator/ (Mifflin-St Jeor formula) My thoughts too, made reasonable strength gains on SL. Biggest thing that's changed is my views on lifting/bodybuilding, gone from a "yeah I'll be shredded af by this summer" to "maybe in a few years I'll be decent". What would you consider a drastic cut btw?
  9. What's up guys

    Hey team, new member, been lifting for ~ 6 months. I play basketball, currently doing SL5x5 and seeing dem strength gains. Stoked to join the community, good to see all the positivity on various topics. Hope everyone's workout and nutrition has been on point! Primarily lifting for basketball and aesthetics, starting my first cut, no where near big enough for it to be completely warranted, but I've never had a six pack so COME AT ME ABDOMINALS. TDEE: 2762 Current daily caloric intake: 2200 Lifting 3x a week, cardio 2x a week Any and all advice is appreciated!
  10. Jumping training
