Why the fuck were you snorting adderall, it's significantly less effective when taken that way.  If you wanna ground up an XR tablet to get it all at once just parachute it or something.

 

A lot of my friends do coke and only a few of them do it frequently, it's one of those drugs that's pretty easy to just be an occasional user since the "holy shit I really want more coke" feeling doesn't last all that long + at like $60+/g it's not like running to the convenience store to buy a pack of cigs.  I don't really get the appeal though, it makes you feel good but kinda tweaked for ten minutes and then the rest of your night becomes about finding more coke.

Not that you've said your piece, the scientific community can move on.


Thanks for helping progress.

 

Not sure why you're being sarcastic, what he said was pretty spot on.  A lot of those people who are ~*raging*~ 3 nights a week in their early twenties are gonna be ~*fat alcoholics*~ in 10-15 years and have no idea what they're doing.

Well it's not adderal is it, it's amphetamine, we don't have adderal in the uk. Adderal is a mixture of a few drugs with some shit to slow down the absorption, this is just amphetamine pressed into a pill.

You are seriously spot on with the coke analysis.

Oh. That makes a big difference, I always see people snorting adderall here but the bioavailability is super low because of the binders and whatnot they put in there.  Plus it hurts like hell.

Also rectal absorption is always going to be the most effective method ;)

post #44197 of 57261
I tried to snort concerta last year, process takes forever. Was not worth it. Most agonizing thing i've snorted is 2cb, those are some bad feels. Since everyone discussing drugs has anyone used zoplicon? I've been having pretty bad insomnia since december so I might try it.

I thought this was worth being sarcastic to:

 

"on the whole personality amplification thing, i don't entirely buy it. i mean, sure, it amplifies people's personalities, but a repressed asshole who turns into a raging prick when he's drunk is still a raging prick when he's drunk, repressed assholishness be damned. if they're sober, theyre still just sober and not taking it out on people and hence not being an asshole (or as big of one as they would be when drunk). if getting drunk is what tips that person over into actually externalizing their asshole-ness, then getting drunk is still a problem. kind of like how someone lazy as fuck with no motivation can be made worse by getting stoned all the time; yeah, they were lazy as fuck in the first place but being stoned all the time isn't doing them any favours."

 

That entire paragraph just doesn't mean anything. He's arguing that he doesn't buy personality amplification, but then contradicts himself and uncontradicts himself.

There are certain people who are far more susceptible to substance abuse to argue that it doesn't change people's personality is ridiculous.

Already back, hehe.

 

Just wanted to share the results and experience from my first powerlifting meet today:

 

 

Strangely, I wasn't particularly nervous this morning.

Came to the competition well in time to meet the other lifters from my club and start queuing for weigh-in.
Weighed in at 86.5 kg / 190 lbs and was thus placed in the weight class -93 kg (183-295 pounds).

 

Squats
120 kg / 265 lbs - 3-0 (as in 3 white lights, zero reds)

135 kg / 298 lbs - 2-1
145 kg / 320 lbs - 3-0

 

I choose to open very easy to secure the first lift. Was instructed to increase up to 135 kg by our team coach. 135 felt good but was on the verge of too shallow, hence one red light. The last lift was a 11 pound PR. 

 

Bench

82.5 kg / 182 lbs - 3-0

87.5 kg / 192 lbs - 3-0

95 kg / 210 lbs - 3-0

 

The two first lifts were easy so I chose to make a big jump and go for a 20 pound PR. Very pleased with my bench progress.

 

Deadlift

At this point, I was very worn down and tired. I don't many people realize how tough it is to lift for so many hours and  that you have to psyche yourself up for multiple PRs in all of the big lifts in one day. Deadlifts were also the lifts I was most worried about since my training cycle leading up to the meet has had me deadlifting with higher frequency and volume but lighter weights. My CNS wasn't very accustomed to max efforts DLs.

 

140 kg / 308 lbs - 3-0
150 kg / 330 lbs - 3-0
160 kg / 352 lbs - 0-3

 

First two lifts went up smoothly. So I went in hard for a 160 kg last attempt to get a nice 400 kg / 880 lb total. Good speed right off the floor but the lift just died. Got out of position and my back began to round.

 

All in all, I'm pleased with my performance and the experience I got. It would be nice to get a 400 kg total at my first meet but 10 kg less doesn't bother me. I knew the DLs would be troublesome. I need to work out what is making it my worst lift, cus structurally, I'm supposed to be good at it.

 

I also want to encourage everyone who has the opportunity to enter a meet as soon as possible. There were guys there squatting 220 for their last attempt with people cheering on them. No one cares what you numbers you hit. They just like to see you put in some effort and push yourself to your max. Also, many people don't even watch the lifts unless its some big weights. People generally just come there to test themselves and don't care much what anyone else does, apart from their friends.

 

Its 6 months until the next meet, so I have a nice and long training block to put on some much needed size.

Aiming for 350-230-385.

Thanks man!

Its allowed in IPF.

 

I think its done to help you get a tighter setup. It really gets my arch dialed in.

also good job
post #44205 of 57261

One reason the arch looks so intense is cus I'm quite skinny.

The fat bench pressers (as in they only compete in bench) also arch a ton, but their gut makes it look less intense.
