  1. are dumbells enough for a good physique

    PETN covered most of my thoughts. More specifically, with bench press a bunch of shoulder stabilisers are going to be your limiting factor. BB lets you bench more kgs and cause greater stimulus to the targetted muscle groups. DBs would lead to better 'real world' strength, but we are talking more about size (I think). The downside is the forced fixed handspacing - could be that the humeral head moving and rotating through that range is a bad idea for some. Type 2 or 3 subacromia for example. Buut DB training means a strong side isn't dominating the lift. Short version - neither is better overall, but for size gains most muscle groups people look at will grow faster with barbell training cos heavier.
  2. are dumbells enough for a good physique

    Yeah that's me a month ago. Pretty sure (physical) progression is faster with barbell training, compared to DBs. No point getting slow results, assuming results are the point of your training.
  3. are dumbells enough for a good physique

    Post a pic of "a good physique".
  4. how much is enough Caffeine as a pre-workout

    Nice. Around 1.4g was my top.
  5. Homemade mass gainer shakes

    Making is cheaper and you get what you want. Yay. Good recipe and good total volume. You'll see change in weight from that breakfast rather than whatever you did have. I would add around two scoops of unflavoured whey protein concentrate. Getting 50+g of protein at breakfast simply makes the rest of the day easier, in terms of hitting your targets. Shop around for a WPC with protein close to 78% protein, so 78 grams of protein per 100 grams. Garbage products near 60% protein are not even cheap - read your labels.
  6. Tradie gains

    I get a lot of comments for the not-"healthy" lunches... Usually see two pies and a soft drink for $4 in there too, but that must have been a well-provisioned day! Need to do better with protein though. More, and get them eggs and mince more often. That can be hard at work. 2l flavoured or normal milk is also great.
  7. Looking for a good nutritionist

    Nutritionist or dietitian?
  8. Laced test e??

    Are you concerned that something far more expensive was used rather than test? I don't think it was eh
  9. Tradie gains

    I'm Bob the builder too. On Friday I had: 1000 calorie protein shake 2 x peanut butter and jam sandwich for 1000 cals (40g PB and 60g jam in each from memory) 1/2 a bag of farmbake cookies for 840 cals bag of cheezels 800 cals 200g Cadbury Black Forest chocolate 1000 cals about 500 cals of ice cream I try to eat hard during the week, and then take it easy at the weekend.
  10. Diet

    9,000 is enough for training 6 days a week.
  11. HCG on cycle?

    Ordinarily we'd detect and remove most (all?) damaged cells wouldn't we? This seems like a pivotal factor. If the messed up fellas are allowed to hang around and divide then I can begin to see the problem. It becomes and issue of degree of damage, i.e. dosage and duration. If it all gets cleaned up over time then meh.
  12. So where are the Black Friday deals on whey??

    I satirised the phenomena of a business setting up multiple user accounts, or paying 3rd parties, on a forum for the purpose of promoting their product/brand. The joke is funnier now that I've explained it.
  13. HCG on cycle?

    Most readers don't click-through to studies so it's helpful to mention this was a study on rats. What happens in the rat model after ceasing nandrolone? Without introducing taurine or anything else. The passage of time attentuates nandrolone decanoate-induced poor sperm quality and testicular toxicity, right? Assuming taurine does similarly cool stuff in humans while using nandrolone, the conclusion of the study appears to be don't make a baby while on cycle. Or, supplement with taurine and it's probably okay to make a baby. Or do the on-cycle benefits of taurine have an impact on other important things during the cycle? Keep in mind that <4 readers know if this is desirable "This was evidenced by taurine-induced modulation of testicular LDH-x activity" and I'm not one of them.
  14. HCG on cycle?

    Cool, but what are the implications for after the cycle? Who really cares what the testes do while on holiday, if they come back 100% after cycle.
  15. So where are the Black Friday deals on whey??

    Sweet sweet. We tag-teamed the shit out of this one. Hook me up with some of them shill-bucks brah! On the down low of course
