    All you guys that are getting checkups (or aren't getting checkups), you should get blood work done for your hormones and thyroid. I definitely suggest it.

    A friend of mine just got his done from my suggestion and he came back with low testosterone (~250ng/dl).

    Will do that. I have so many sick leave days accumulated, going to take 1 for a full checkup.

    TBH I am scared due to what I may find out but then I'll never know if I don't.

    It takes like an hour to get a full physical, unless you're going in for an exercise stress test or something.

    we're not. i just disagreed at the lulzworthiness of something he posted and it weirdly spiraled out of control

    i have like 0 investment in the argument though and would rather we keep talking about lifting and stuff. no hate :)

    Throwing yourself out of position by shooting your hips up before the bar starts moving.

    Also, quit it with the bouncing of the weights - it's only exacerbating your form/technique issue. Pull from a dead stop each rep.

    I'm not mad at him. I honestly, saw everyone going off at each other and just ignored the last page or so. TLDR.

    If you are interested in getting a more athletic workup done, look up primary care physicians in your area that have done Sports Medicine fellowships. Probably overkill for just routine bloodwork etc, but if you're curious and have insurance, not a bad resource to have if you ever injure yourself.
