    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.

    Am I weird or does anyone else have the same train of thought? I detest cardio because it's boring as fuck... but I enjoy cardio in the rain and ultra hot heat. I guess I like the uncomfortable/harder conditions so it's less boring. Does that make any sense at all lol?

    I've been swimming twice a week and I love it. Only form of cardio that i've actually enjoyed, past actually playing a sport or riding a real bike.

    Solid info:

    [​IMG]


    - Training fasted not optimal for muscle hypertrophy
    - Protein synthesis tops at 40g post workout. Less protein than this in the post workout meal can lead to less protein synthesis, but any amount of protein over that amount will have negligible effect
    - Guidelines for protein intake pre- & post workout is LBM x 0.25 each, taken within 2 hours before / after the workout starts / ends

    Yea, I'm admire Charly silent rage. I'm such an emotional baby when it's time to do a PR, I need to huff and puff and have someone telling me YOU GOT THIS BRO. I do need to find someone to lift with though, lifting in the morning with 50 year old ladies listening to Jazz is just not getting me amped enough :(

    I respect AA but I'm gonna keep training fasted....... I just function better fasted... both in and out of the gym. I just had my first meal of the day today and I feel great. When I eat before the gym I feel sluggish as fuck no matter what the size or time before the meal is (within 1-2 hours)... I'm gonna keep going with what works for me

    ^ Yea I feel the same way. I can't run to just run, but if it's challenging and difficult I want to do it. Not talking long distance because anything beyond 11-13 I'm done.

    Finished stairs/box jumps in the rain and tfw you got more cakes than the yoga pant wearin' girls doing stairs with you.

    Have you tried to only eat protein and fats pre-workout?
    Carbs are usually what cause these kinds of crash, going hypo / carb crashing, you know.

    Just something small like 2 eggs, some cottage cheese, and some spinach in olive oil would do the trick for getting some nutrients in before the workout without getting full and crashing.

    Aimlessly browsing gyms online in my new city. Stumble upon this gem nbsfitness.com. Conveniently located within minutes from where I will be. Scared to ask the membership cost.

    Eggs are too high cholesterol. I get about 10g of BCAAs so it's not completely fasted. IDK. My system now works for me

    There is nothing wrong with cholesterol, its adverse health affects are pretty much debunked these days.
