You can't. Pretty much while I will never ride a motorcylce and why I also stopped cycling places around the city; not enough of the safety is your own hands, it simply doesn't matter how safe you are, the danger is completely dependent on other people which is something I just can't handle.

Agreed. Like our parents were decent drivers. Our generation though is so damn distracted. I see people swerving into bike lanes all the time because they are on their phones or fucking with their stereos. What I like about this area though is they have trails that wind through the whole city, but eventually there's parts that are on main roads.

Going to miss these days on monday when term starts and the gym is full of dyels and my beloved texas power bar is being used to half squat 30kg with the pussy pad on it.


145kgx2 front squat. Nice pr after 10 days off lifting and pretty much eating.

I just bmx on the grass now.

Dont ride anywhere where car traffic is legit doing more than 10 MPH more than you. I rode in NYC for years, only problem I had was going over the handlebars after hitting a pothole.

Riding in NC pretty much seems DOA. I just bought an indoor trainer and ride that.

Thats not true. If you pay attn you can usually see the distracted idiots long before they are a problem. Only real big danger is folks turning in front of you. Bikes fare worse in accidents but are able to better avoid them in the first place.

Been working on ring dips for a few weeks at the gym and got my first honest one today. Feeling much more tight and solid on them, compared with where I was a few weeks ago.

It is true. Yeah, you can take measures to reduce the risk but in the end, If a car isn't paying attention/doesn't see you, or you don't see a distracted driver and they hit you, then you're fucked.

I just don't see it being worth the risk.

If a car hits my car, there's a pretty good chance i'll be fine, if you're on a bike then you could get hit by a Prius and still be fucked.

You are harder to hit though, especially if you are a competent/defensive rider. I know people who have ridden for decades without accidents. I have had accidents but they were because of my own stupidity and even they weren't that bad.

And the upsides are pretty numerous. Riding is just plain fun and probably a big part of why I'm not bummed about selling my sports car. Theres a reason we call them cages smile.gif

Oh, I guess it depends on your goals in that case.

 

(I think like you do though on this!)

What negative effects does alcohol have on muscle growth, other than the lack of quality sleep one may get from a night out?

Was iffy on going out tonight and my decision to stay in was tipped over by the fact that I got an amazing workout yesterday. I don't want to ruin potential gainz from boozing too hard shog[1].gif

Alcohol raises estrogen levels in men

Alcohol will stop protein synthesis. Only resumes after liver metabolizes all the ethanol.

All alcohol is really high in carbs, and it's all empty calories.

Bottom line, is that booze really has no place in fitness/bodybuilding/strength training etc

Im not read up the research, but this article http://www.leangains.com/2010/07/truth-about-alcohol-fat-loss-and-muscle.html claim " The negative effects of alcohol on testosterone and recovery has been grossly exaggerated by the fitness mainstream. Excluding very high acute alcohol consumption, or prolonged and daily consumption, the effect is non-significant and unlikely to affect muscle gains or training adaptations negatively.

* The effect of alcohol on muscle protein synthesis is unknown in normal human subjects. It is not unlikely to assume that a negative effect exists, but it is very unlikely that it is of such a profound magnitude that some people would have you believe."


Made me feel better about drinking beer..

edit: although you should only drink dry wine, eat protein and veggies to prevent getting fat. Most boring thing ive heard.

Drinking excessively makes me feel like shit the day after. That and I had a DUI scare last month. Pretty much ruined my dad's life too. More than enough to keep me in check

Headed to Mexico, delirious from low sleep and all I can think about is losing my gains. Guzzling a shake now before we head to the airport confused.gif

This. Alternatively, bodyweight exercises. Have fun!
