    can anyone comment on "typical" proportions? ie. at what point are someone's arms qualified as being long? lagrang i remember you commenting on those UK girls being short/having long legs for oly lifters. is there a chart somewhere detailing this or rules of thumb?


    :slayer::slayer::slayer:

    on vikings owning: agreed.


    thanks, torrenting now

    I am 100% sure the russians have had some studies done on optimal proportions for weightlifting, maybe dreschlers book has something on that too.. nothing that I could find though.

    I commented mostly because the shorter chick had long levers in a sport where shorter levers (i.e. shorter limbs, manlets) are an advantage for obvious reasons.

    also inb4 some douche points out the many exceptions to this like chakarev or other tall lifters

    Gotta say, this dieting stuff has taken me pretty close to being a DYEL bro.. but I look better and for the first time in like 6 years actually have a drop from my shoudlers to waist.. i think general Styleforum would approve. Pinder says he's going to take me down to single digit body fat then build me up while remaining super lean...

    There are a few books regarding this. Some in Russian, but the one I last saw was in English. I found it on Google Books but dont remember the name..google something like 'weightlifting'

    Congrats amigo. Are you following a specific diet? I'm going to sound like a broken record, but IF is awesome.

    I don't get how the fuck IF is supposed to work for people who have jobs and finish work at 6pm. Finish work, get to gym around 7, finish workout at 8 OH NO YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO EAT ANYMORE.

    lift in the morning? eat from 2-10 instead of 12-8?

    i agree with your sentiment that it can be a pain in the ass though

    I work on average 80 hours a week including the occasional 30 hour shift and still have made it work.

    I usually fast until around noon or 1pm, have a small lunch at work, lift after work, then eat most of my calories after lifting around 7pm. Works for me.

    How to wash knee sleeves. Have neoprene ones, been using them for a few months. They smell disgusting. I can smell them even whilst wearing them.

    Trust me this doesn't work that well. My rehbands are still stinking after I wash them.

    Fuji, use a ton of baking soda and soak em. Then hand wash with some detergent. Might be even worth getting some detergent with enzymes in it to digest the odor causing sweat.

    It's been a while since I read IF, but I would think that if you need the extra hour or two to eat food that you would simply move the bottom up a couple hours. I mean, I work 7am to 330pm so there's no sense in trying to hammer what would be my IF schedule into your day or vice versa.

    My problem with meal timing that leaves a large portion of cals for after the work out is that I end up with nightmares, getting up to piss 3 times during the night, my body temp roasts me, and generally shitty sleep. At least that is what happens if I eat 1kcal of buttery ravioli. Doesn't seem to happen with PWO meals of ice cream, rolled oats, and a casein drink before bed. Wonder if I'm crazy or what the deal is. The ravioli has 45g of protein and the ice cream route I protein load all day. Idunno...

    Buttery ravioli sounds amazing, will have tmrw. So does the ice cream.

    Ride the Lightning isn't really a black metal tee. Your boyfriend is tall.:satisfied:
