1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    GN I met that dude in your avatar while walking around Brooklyn! I told him he was jacked and took a picture of me flexing next to him.

    yowch, playing hockey the day after squatting is a bad idea. serious hip/glute doms are no bueno when it comes to making sudden explosive lateral movements.

    If you like that aggressive style rap with big orchestral beats, you gotta get on Jedi Mind Tricks and The Army of Pharaohs.

    Older UK Grime is great as well for that uptempo, party-ish, aggressive style. Check out Boy Better Know, Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and Kano. Gotta be eariler than say 2010.

    Being bigger doesn't give you more rights in a gym just like being a better reader doesn't give you more rights in a library.

    I did 5 sets of curls with 35kg with the squat rack last week whilst someone waited to do squats. When I was done he unloaded the bar and did squats with the bar. I defo got more muscle stimulus then him. To be fair my gym only has 2 oly bars and 2 squat racks so if I'm going to use an oly bar I might as well use the rack too.

    If you can do a thing elsewhere that someone else can't do elsewhere you're an asshole.

    Just last night I asked a dude curling in the power rack "Hey dude, can you do curls over there? (point to empty bench), I was hoping to use the rack to squat and I can't do it anywhere else" and he obliged. I don't think that was unreasonable.

    yeah, i am just a dickhole but i would have declined based on first come first serve. i have done 15 sets of pushdowns just because someone asked me how many sets I have left.

    My post workout meals are starting to get ridiculous from doing carb backloads while bulking. Eating 5 lbs of food in one sitting right now, haha. Probably gonna take me an hour to finish.

    5 lb of what? What macros/calorie totals are you currently running?
