1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Band resisted back extensions feel good man. Did 5x10 with a doubled up mini band, that hamstring and lower back pump fuuuuark. I like how you have to really explode into the band and hold the contraction, feels good man, may have to get my bigger band from home and try it. Got a set of 5 with 160kg on the box squat because I did a reverse pyramid instead of a normal one then 150x7 and 140kgx8, the 8 reps weren't to failure, I just couldnt be fucked to lift really.

    Everyone who got diet troubles should just pay Knucks to write it for you. I am v. happy with this 15 lb bulk, hitting my goal at the exact time I set it and feel a lot bigger and somehow leaner.

    My mate hitting a 200kg single after recovering from a lower back injury last year. He hit a 160kg ass to grass high bar squat last week too. Only been training like 2 years, he was stronger at a lower weight last summer, but he herniated a disc and had to drop the weight and go from powerlifting squats to oly squats. This is not LSE gym sadly, fucking university of essex having a more aesthetic gym.

    This might be one of the only times in this thread that I've typed LOL in a message and actually LOL'd.

    It's some fancy ass scale that all the queer bodybuilders use at the gym.

    i understand maybe paying a coach to design your diet when your either trying to get down to like 6% bf or your a 250lb body builder whose having trouble getting to 260lb, but if your a novice lifter whose like sub 200lb just fucking eat more. I just ate a tub of ice cream, that's going to make me gain weight. Before that I had a burger, a lb of flank steak, 250g of rice, 4 scoops of whey, 2 scoops of maltodextrin and 500g of greek yoghurt, it's not hard to gain weight.

    Paying someone to help you bulk from 170 --> 185....is this real life?

    I bet the bros at GNC and used car lots get a giant hard-on whenever you walk through the door.

    Cool, coming from people that suggested hiring a coach. Which led me to spend like $400 for what equated to spinning my wheels for 2 months.

    I'd me a lot fatter at 185lbs if I just "ate more food".
