    I don't doubt mcdonalds is all formulaic. Chipotle on the other hand I'm sure will wildly vary.

    As an American brah, this could work. I don't wear any manner of sleeve or wraps on deadlift actually, no point in any of them.

    What to wrap them with though? Even sweat pants didn't stop the bleeding. I think baby oil is just so the bar doesn't get stuck on your leg. I don't think calf wraps even exist, rehband probably makes them actually. Maybe I can buy some of those tights all the athletic brahs wear.

    Trying to stick to a super-strict diet can encourage binging, too.


    Absolutely, homemade pizza would be a much better alternative.


    I think this would come down to personal preference.


    I agree with this, and I wouldn't advise anyone to ignore everything other than p/f/c.


    Well, there are countless examples of large groups of people doing things for no logical reason at all. There are certain training practices in various sports that are part of a tradition, and are upheld with that tradition being the main justification, despite alternatives out there that are just as good if not better. I have seen plenty of people prep for a show and include foods that would not be considered staples in a show diet. They weren't making it a significant part of their diet, but they were not completely eliminating those foods with no exceptions either.

    One of my (slightly neurotic) friends always gets double meat, takes it home, scrapes it off, then measures it. HUGE variation depending on who's scooping your meat.

    It is good to be on a bulk. My great grandmother's stuffed pepper recipe (only w/ ground turkey instead of beef/pork), from the old country, or something.

    Firstly, the study you linked isn't relevant. Arterial line vs cuff in a muscular individual. That's a relevant study. Secondly, for your anecdote to be relevant, you need to suggest that you saw this performed on an obviously muscular individual.

    Such a study doesn't exist because it isn't necessary. There's plenty of swole dudes with normal blood pressures. And I've been in on those types of surgeries on athletes, non-athletes, thin, and obese. If you have a well fitting cuff, it can usually take an accurate blood pressure.

    The exception is on people with really bad peripheral vascular disease.

    You have exhausted my interest on the topic. If people here want to blame their elevated BP readings on their huge fucking swole python cannons for arms, they can be my guest. I have friends going into cardiology and neurology who will enjoy your business when you're 65 and have a heart attack or stroke.

    Figured I'd offer this deal to my RHET brethren before offering to the masses.

    Rick Owens drop-crotch pants. Black brushed cotton, light/medium weight. Off-white drawstring. Perfect condition minus a small tear near drawstring which can be fixed in 2 minutes.

    Just got these... size large.. does not fit me as I've gained weight. :(
