I realize that to many of you, an "L" is gigantic, especially in American sizing - but it's the smallest I've ever been. Yesterday, I ate almost nothing, mainly out of necessity - I moved to a new apartment, didn't really have food, too late for delivery,...

So, what brands of jeans fit the "big" guys around here. I have a 38" waist, 46" hips, and 26" thighs, so the hips and thighs may be a bit bigger than your "typical" 38" waisted guy. The only brand of jeans that regularly fits me is Mavi, but I'd like to try something nicer, but don't really know where to start.
Quote: Originally Posted by jaustin Hey everyone, I've recently been wondering how good stretching is. I myself practially never stretch even though I play a good amount of sports. I very rarely get any injuries even though I am quite unflexible (I can barely touch my toes). Are there any really great benefits to stretching every day? I find that for certain lifts (stiff-legged deadlifts, deep squats) being flexible is an absolute necessity to...

It was my impression that most multi-vitamins (and definitely male-specific ones) don't contain iron for this very reason. I could be wrong though.

I would like some opinions. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/luis6.htm I think it's pretty bad, but there's worse. Too many calf isolation exercises, leg extensions and curls are horrible, no deadlifts, and arms don't need their own day. I also dislike seeing plans without dips - I think...
I have an abbreviated workout plan due to an ouchy knee: Monday and Thursday: deadlifts - 3 sets at 245 pounds, right now something like 14/9/5 reps - 1RM is about 370. I want to hit 400. Once I hit that, I think I'm going to concentrate on overhead presses. Dips - 2 sets, bodyweight, typically 14/10 reps. Reps are getting high, so I will be adding additional weight soon. standing overhead dumbbell presses - 45s, too many reps I also get some pull-ups in...
