After shaving my chest and seeing how much more defined it makes me look; I'm tempted to do my legs as well, but I fear that's a bit too phaggoty.

To the guys with Inzer belts, did you go with the 10 or 13 mm? leaning towards a 10mm-single prong but wanted to hear your thoughts.

I don't own one, but I'm planning on buying one shortly.

 

From what I heard, 13mm is overkill for pretty much anyone unless you squat 600 pounds and compete in powerlifting on that level. People say its so stiff it takes years to break in and then it still hurts a lot to use and leaves bruises.

 

So yeah, I'd def go with 10mm.

 

Edit: just read TKs post. Hadn't heard that before, so YMMV

Maybe it's the way I cook it, but it always comes out blah

People somehow think brown rice or any carb source with a higher fiber and lower GI score is more "healthy". Keeping blood sugar levels low can be good for sedentary people, but its not necessary for a active person who trains hard regularly.

 

If you eat any of those lower GI carbs on the regular, and in big portions (most lifters eat a lot of carbs), you'll prob get too much fiber in your diet,

It possible that your digestion gets bad when you eat a lot of fiber, leaving your body unable to take up all the nutrients you eat and you get very bloated.

 

I thought oatmeal, brown rice, beans and whole wheat pasta was the best carbs on my last bulk. I got stomach pains as soon as I got up to 400ish grams of carbs and I got bloated. I was getting way too much fiber though, something like 70g a day (35g is recommended for most men)

Nowadays I pretty much only have white rice, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes and occasionally some oatmeal for my carbs and it has made me feel a lot better. Nowadays I eat more carbs without the problems.

 

You guys in the States also have Cream of Rice which is an awesome porridge made out of granulated white rice. I'd eat that all the time if I were you.

I might have to go and be the asst coach for my friend at nationals a few wks from now. Too bad I have fucking zero experience with the tactics so might be safer to bow out this time.

What generally happens when you eat too much fiber is that your digestion gets bad, leaving your body unable to take up all the nutrients you eat and you get very bloated.

this man speaketh the truth. white rice, oatmeal, sweet potatoes = god tier.

Mine is 13mm and was useable out of the box. Took a week to break in. It's nice and comfy now. Did get occasional small bruises

2014 training is not going so well. Inconsistent schedule, travelling, random nonsense popping up... missing 1-2 workouts every week pretty much. Making some good tech revisions to snatch and C&J, but damn near zero progress in strength this year. Can't decide whether to do a cut back to 94kg class for next competition (and look good for summer) or try to hang in as an underweight yet slightly fluffy 105 on my way to putting on more mass to hit the long-term goal sooner.

False. First time, no prep, perfect 800 foo.gif back when they scored on 800 pt scale.
GRE quant is essentially freshman undergrad math. If you deal with math on a regular basis (and I'm assuming with a name such as Lagrangian that you do), it should be pretty easy.

Correct. As someone who is naturally rather hairless on the torso (save for some lower ab fur), I kinda wish I could grow a chest carpet. When it comes to body hair, too little and too much are both bad.... embrace what you have and just take care to keep it groomed nicely.

Who cares if shaving certain body parts is phaggoty. We all post on a mens only style forum in a thread dedicated to male aesthetics. We're all homos, embrace it.

You can shave your legs w/o ridicule. Just buy a $1000 road bike and call yourself a cyclist

This is exactly why I started... Sheer vanity.

It's easiest to manage if you just keep it trimmed, rather than going to skin every time - I'll use a 1.5 or a 2 on the buzzer and do my chest, arms and legs now. Doesn't look femm, but you do see more definition and no itch.

GRE seems pretty easy not even freshmen undergrand maths, well not what I learned. I couldn't do the GMAT though, didnt even feel like maths.
