  1. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    What's been happening, mate? Just sayin.
  2. SARMS

    Subjects were admitted to the Clinical Research Center in the evening. An intravenous cannula was inserted into an arm vein for subsequent blood sampling, and subjects spent the night in the Research Center. All overnight blood sampling was performed from outside the subject’s room through long tubing to minimize disturbance of the subjects. I have a mental image of researchers sitting up all night in the room next door sucking blood out of long tubes. Not sure whether to find this hilarious or disturbing.
  3. Why in NZ is Whey marketed in pounds

    I'm pleased other people get irritated by this too! My guess is that it's either imported from the US, where they do use pounds, or it's a marketing ploy. That is, "the big US brands use lbs, so if we do the same, people will think we're a big US brand too."
  4. Rolled Shoulders fix

    Hahaha! I do this. I get a few strange looks from people wondering if I've been pinned by a 8kg dumbbell. Haven't ever tried a posture corrector harness thing, but I suspect as Chemo says, it's more a problem of mind-muscle, and just training yourself into better habits. My guess is that as soon as you took the harness off, you'd find yourself slumping forward again - and probably worse than before.
  5. low test. and HRT

    You, and a bunch of others too! Just wanted to say thanks for all your help here, Daz. It's much appreciated by everyone.
  6. SARMS

    Yeah man, if you can post a review (or, even better a log as you go) that would be awesome! Can you elaborate on this? Is the insulin resistance entirely reversible? And why are GH spikes a bad thing - I thought higher GH would be desirable?
  7. First GPC powerlifting meet at 16

    Hey man, welcome to the forum! Those are good numbers! We've had a few members compete with GPC (and others), and I'm sure they'll share any tips they can. Why not start a training journal so we can see what you're up to? You can embed all your IG posts in there, and you might even pick up a few new followers.
  8. 260kg block pull w/straps @ 16

    Shiiiit! Nice going, bro! How long have you been training for? Not sure why, but your video isn't embedding here - I have to download it to see it. I'll see if there are any secret admin settings that can fix this, but in the meantime, Instagram vids usually seem to embed nicely...
  9. GABA is it illegal in nz

    Afraid so. It's a class B prohibited drug. Although it seems pleading ignorance of that can sometimes work in your favour: http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/news/9091522/Judge-finds-Hamilton-gym-buff-not-guilty
  10. Websites

    Welcome. Maybe I'm biased, but I tend to think Gymnation is a good place to ask about gyms and supplements... What do you want to know? Or are you asking for a source of more illicit supplements? Because, as you'll remember from the terms you agreed to when registering, asking that is not allowed!
  11. Protein on a budget

    Yeah, I was surprised at how low in carbs beans actually are. In fact, I decided the nutritional panel on my tin of Delmaine's mixed beans must surely have been wrong. I imagined they were all starchy carbs, but apparently not?
  12. Mobility Megathread

    I've been looking at a lot of videos by Tom Merrick lately. He gives really good, clear explanations, and the video descriptions often have links with even more info. Here's a playlist of all his Flexibility & Mobility videos:
  13. Ohjoshua's Intense city, lets ramp it up.

    Now there's a name I haven't seen for a while... Welcome back mate!
  14. Diet

    Just to play devil's advocate here... I reckon if the OP is keen enough, there's no reason for him NOT to count calories. @Cameron, I'm not saying you should do it every day, but just once in a while to get a benchmark of what you're eating. It can only be a good thing if it makes you more aware of diet (and how much food you're actually eating), and it will give you something to look back on and compare later. Having said that, I don't think there's much value in setting a target number of calories. At 15, you're probably still growing naturally (regardless of the gym training), and I doubt any calorie calculator takes teenage growth spurts into account. So just do what the others suggest and eats lots of healthy food (not too much sugar, not too much fat). Measure yourself on the scales every week or so. If you're not gaining weight, eat more. If you're just getting fat, eat less.
  15. Finally... conclusive evidence that lifting weights makes guys more attractive to teh ladies. I knew that deep down, they loved my shirtless gym selfies. Admittedly, rugby is the top most attractive sport. But only just. The difference is negligible, attributable to the small sample size, and well within the margin of error, I'm sure. Basically, weightlifting is as good as tops.
