    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.

    Really enjoy the 10 FS triples on a hungover day in the afternoon. Probably not what my coach had in mind though.

    Thanks. I'll definitely try that one out for pre-workouts some days. I did read that citrulline + a little bit of arginine is best, as straight arginine can quickly dissipate and even spark a reaction where your body makes anti-arginine (in extremely base and unscientific terms, I know). But it's good to hear that it's giving someone super-pumps.

    @ridethecliche: I've read that the citrulline effect is supposed to be acute, though a lot of people on the interwebs subjectively report they have to take smaller amounts it every day to feel the effects. (Those were older men taking it for sexual functioning, though, which is I think what most are looking for). No idea how it would relate to exercise, though. I didn't feel any exercise effect on the recommended dose, 6g spread over a day -- most likely because that's the sex-enhancing dose, though not explicitly stated on the bottle.

    @hendrix: Definitely agree on a basic healthy lifestyle, especially at noob status. This particular interest was just more of an excitement over a food or supplement actually, observably working (my blood pressure was never elevated, but I could see it drop consistently; sex like *woah* hours after drinking a cup of beet juice). Crazy.

    I wonder how much watermelon one could eat - or watermelon juice one could drink - would be enough to get the same effect. Anyone want to figure it out?

    Get the most bang for your buck and eat other people's leftover rinds?

    Well, I mean, more eNOS is useful for things other than working out.

    I will attest that I have eaten an entire watermelon in a couple of hours and never noticed anything.

    As for arginine, if I take a supplement with a lot of arginine in it I literally have insane boners and overproduction of semen issues.

    Sure, laugh it up -- I can't wait to be 130 years old with amazing blood pressure.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go shed tears over my improbably-large member... :cry:

    No?
    I read its nutrition label as 28g protein per 112g, which is just about right for turkey.

    meant 112g protein/lb/480 calories, I googled turkey breast and that seems right, surprised it had so much protein. I've always avoided deli meat cuz of the salt, nitrates, and carcinogenic stuff.

    tweaked something in my back. Really enjoying this since now I'm going to have to rest for probably some weeks. Did the diagnostics for a herniated disc, seems to luckily not be the case.

    Oh well, I guess more time for my shitty papers and teaching then.

    Back from Europe. A little softer but not too bad. Time to kill it

    Europe was fun though. Croatia is gorgeous but Paris is still my baby mama
