Re: How noticeable is the weight loss after water fasting?

First off, crash dieting is not really the best (unless youre doing some sort of IF?), second, within a week you should be able to see difference already.

Re: GOMAD

Supposedly milk is better for new lifters than roids, quote Rippetoe on that. Something to do with IGF-1 release through all the hormones in milk or something similar. Also, easy way to put in your system lots of calories (fats, carbs and casein protein all in one). All in all, milk is good, a gall...

Re: GOMAD

Don't you think "idiotic" is a bit harsh? Not really...there is a certain board that discusses this same topic everyday and general opinion is that its really not necessary. GOMAD is way, way, way too many calories for a normal individual to consume each day. I mean, its ok if you want to completel...

Re: Wrist/Hand Position during Bench Press

Tate talks about this in his "so you think you can bench" video series, I think its the fourth. Very informing and important.

Re: Why don't we attract more quality members?

There are some other famous related forums which simply dissappoint. This is one is small but much much better in overall quality...if you take out the useless posts of the other sites you get almost nothing,

Re: Repetition Ranges

What about the idea that large muscles get small rep ranges, i.e. squats, deadlift, bench, while smaller muscles get larger rep ranges, i.e. curls? I think this is sort of related to the whole "fiber type" thing, fast twitch and slow twitch responding better to different intensities (heavier, light...

Re: Repetition Ranges

There are basically 2 reasons to do research: to discover previously unknown truth or to settle a controversy. Something that is universally, or even almost universally accepted may not attract the attention of researchers. It's only when a question about something comes up that someone is willing ...

Repetition Ranges

I am trying to get my hands on research or related material about the effects of different rep ranges in weight training. I see this issue debated a lot everywhere but little evidence posted, if any, and it bugs me, for one cause I would really like to read about it and second, because there is so m...

Re: Straps

sorry to immediately divert the topic but I'm sure someone else with a sissy grip will come in and help. What are you doing now to help your grip, other than deadlifting heavy ? For me, I'm almost afraid of straps, even though my grip can be a limiting factor, and I dont lift heavy. But, I'm concer...

Straps

What should I look for when buying straps? I was never a fan of them but Ive just come to a point in which I simply cannot progress in my DLing because of constant grip failures. Tips? Any particular brand?

Thanks in advance.

Re: About chin-up, pull-up and other

Yeah -- keep the thread alive! I think there's not much difference wrt lat development. The act of pulling yourself up is enough to activate the lats. It's more important to get a full contraction. Wide grip can be tricky -- I think most people go too wide, don't get a full contraction and don't ge...
