    i just bought 2 pairs of NS for cheap and they have an acceptably good rise for my fat ass. i wouldn't go out of my way to get them at full price but they're a good fit - they'll give enough in the seat to be comfortable and they taper just enough for me.

    My legs have gone to about average size but i really like Skinny Guys TTS or TTS+1. Medium rise, slim/tapered cut, a bit of top-block slouch when sized up.

    I'll throw my vote in for NS. They've worked very well for me. My current pair doesn't fit cause I've gained so much weight, but at my normal weight they are a spot on fit for someone with decent sized legs.

    tried NS on for the first time a few weeks ago. Baggy as fuark on the calves, could be I have the calves of an 8 year old black girl though.


    Also currently watching democratic convention. Lolzing at michelle obamas speech, the "zomg i love my husband so much, he's such a great man we're such a beautiful family who grew up poor and struggled so much, american dream, hard work, his bbc is the only bbc i've ever took" speech, which is basically the same as that blonde mormon womens one doesn't work when your like 6 foot and jacked as fuck. I can vote in the election this year, gonna be lolzy. I don't like Biden because he helped get sterons banned, but Mnits weird as fuck.

    Stumbled into this thread... what's the best way to cut without losing much muscle? Just want definition, don't really care about strength, although I couldn't afford to be much weaker :embar:

    A lot of people in this thread swear by intermittent fasting, personally I've never done it.

    I had read about that in the past but never tried it. The basic idea is simply to eat all your food for the day within an 8 hour window with the majority of protein directly after your workout if I remember correctly?

    Mainly I just don't carry fat well. Greatly dislike my body currently :( Guys carrying more fat than me can still look way better simply because of how my body distributes it... so I'm thinking I just need to thin down until that isn't an issue?

    My results from IF have greatly diminished after the first 2 weeks of being on it. I'm thinking of giving it up, but want to stick with it another month to see if I'm just plateauing.

    Were you really expecting dramatic results in two weeks? None of the "success" stories on the IF site took less than a couple of months, with most of them being more along the three or four month mark.

    best fitting jeans for guys that lift are the Somet High Tapered that they sell at BIG. They are super vanity sized so I sized down 4 from 33 to a 29 (which has a 33" waist that stretches to 34 and they are sanforized so no shrinking. Fabric is dense and no very slubby some people like that others don't. You can sag them for the dropcrotch effect because they have a high rise. Tapers down to just under 7" at the hem.

    I think the state i get to vote in is a swing state too. Serious though, michelle obama could probably bench 135lb pretty easily

    No, I did have dramatic results in the first 2 weeks- but basically nothing since then.
