  1. Good to see you blini.
  2. Haha! Good point on the BCAA drinks on display. I'm sure they are getting something out of it, but there needs to be some effort put in to maximize it. So YouTube is the heavy culprit in this phenomenon, eh? I'm not on to everything YouTube offers, so maybe that's why I'm a lost sheep. I do have a "friend" who has capitalized on his disability and YouTube, however. I haven't seen his latest stuff, but last I saw he definitely had the beard and man-bun. No beast mode shirt though... actually no shirt at all.
  3. Yep. The beards and arm sleeves became the norm around here about a year ago. Add the leggings under their shorts and man-buns to the mix and that's been the past 12 months of "fashion" evolving around my gym. About a year ago, I thought the beard thing was a veteran calling card as a few of my friends grew out some impressive chin flow. But... not so much. It's everywhere now.
  4. Posting this from the gym as my curiosity is piqued. There are 6 or 7 younger (20's) people working out in small backpacks. These aren't your weighted backpacks, these are your normal smallish nylon packs. Is this a thing now? Is it some kind of code or invitation? signed - too old to know
  5. I like the part when Killerall did the helicopter move to take out everybody. Thought there was a cameo in there with a couple of suppliers too.
  6. Quick temperature check... has everyone been made good on their orders? TEX
  7. Welcome back NavDoc. The reason for the change is due to the previous site provider having an issue with "steroids" being in the title of the web address. There was also an issue with the type of content we discussed here, so the owner made the decision to change the name and the provider.
  8. Jeebus! 6'5"... you could be a monster with that frame! Now get after it!
  9. I have to wear suits on a weekly basis, especially when negotiating contracts or presenting out company. Unfortunately, I'm "that" guy who lifts hard from October through March, gains 15 pounds, then drops it over the summer. Let's just say I have a winter and summer wardrobe. With that said, suit separates are going to be your best option. There are several options at Macy's, Bloomingdales or any other department store. There are a few brands (Bar III, Alfani, Hugo Boss) that use material that gives you a little 'stretch' if you need it. I go with athletic cuts and typically don't need a lot of tailoring. Same call with shirts. Several clothiers are making their dress shirts with theatre stretchy fabric. I actually love the look and feel of a fitted shirt, so this is right down my alley. Again, athletic cuts are the way to go. (And don't shy away from slim cuts either. Depending on brand, slim might mean athletic.) Jeans - Buffalo is the only brand I've found that fits and looks like I want jeans to fit. There are a couple of cuts that are too large around the waist, but there are plenty that fit just right as well.
  10. This has been a great thread thus far. Great advice and a good lookout for those who cruise the 200-250ml weekly test injections.
  11. Fire away!
  12. Is this 16 sets of one exercise or muscle group? If it's one exercise (say, flat bench) I'd agree that 16 sets is too much. If it's a muscle group and you do 1 to 2 warm up sets followed by 3 or 4 different exercises with 3 to 4 sets, I think you're good.
  13. Yesterday was a holiday in the US, and the unofficial "Oh yeah, I joined a gym" day. It was crazy busy at the place I go. Luckily, my bench was next to a big Samoan guy who motivated me to push a little harder. I quit trying to keep up with him when he pressed out 325 for six.
  14. Very true, Siggs. Yesterday was arms and I still can't remember any workout I've done that burns the biceps as much as GVT. Even my wife mentioned that my arms looked pumped nine hours after I worked out yesterday.
