I gotta vent (so feel free to ignore me): I tried bulking & cutting the last two years and I never really got cut and kept losing all my muscle gains: I guess I don't have the genes for abs. So this spring I decided to just keep on bulking under the theory that being jacked is the next best thing to being cut. My weight is 5 lbs heavier than my lifetime max and my lifts are all at lifetime maxes. But I'm having trouble gaining more weight and my lifts are starting to...
You only need to burn the end of a single thread. It's quite obvious if it's synthetic, you'll think "oh, that looks like plastic melting".

I have the opposite problem with my French cuff tuxedo shirt: the cuffs ride down until the whole cuff is past the jacket sleeve. Since French cuffs can't be tightened, what are my options? Have my tailor shorten the sleeves or wear armbands?

Last spring I was on a bulking diet. I hit the Starting Strength newbie plateau and switched to a cutting diet and the Hypertrophy-Specific Training program. I lost some fat and some muscle but never got down to my body fat...
