This thread has been interesting to me. I knew that it was/is widely accepted that gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time (or, more properly, without cycling) is impossible for all but the most out-of-shape persons, but the vehemence of some of the posts has taken me by surprise. So, wizened ones, assuming clean (but not perfect) diet, and 3x/weekly workouts, what do you think a target weekly weight loss (or caloric deficit-- I can do maths) is for a 200 lb male...

STP is so frustrating. Here's a "Navy" suit that's available only in "Black": http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...r-For-Men.html And here's a "Grey" suit that's available only in "Black": http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...l-For-Men.html Which is really quite irritating. Especially as the "live chat" representative seems to be making explanations up for the mismatch.
Are you saying that box squats are unfairly maligned? Who maligns them? I do them frequently. I love them but I never go too heavy as I work out alone.

From the horse's mouth: "Our suits are currently presented in two models: S body (Sirio) and V body (Vesuvio). The S body is the revised model of the Stewart. If you were pleased with the Stewart, you will be absolutely amazed by the fitting of the Sirio. The V body instead is the the traditional Napolitan sartorial model which is characterized by a rope shoulder and makes your chest look fuller."

It's not as difficult as a lot of people claim, IMO. Anyway, as to whether it's worth it, well, I went through the exams (and paid the greenmail to AIMR, err, CFAI) to break into the buy side. It didn't work. So then I entered a top MBA program, which is what it eventually took for me to get my foot in the door. I can't tell you whether the CFA helped me get into the selective MBA program (the grades sure didn't but the GMAT must have helped), and I can't tell you...
