  1. Can any of you assholes post?

    If this shows up the answer is yes.
  2. Everything mobility

    Let's talk mobility. I've been doing Joe Defranco's Limber 11 (sequel to agile 8) link below. I usually make 0 time for mobility, so I'm trying to be better. I have noticed I'm getting much better at the exercises in terms of range of motion. Any exercises you guys do that could fill in some holes in my mobility work. How often is everyone doing it? I'm looking for something I can do that won't take a lot of time because it's hard to get motivated to do these foo-foo exercises anyways. FWIW I haven't static stretched in about 5 years. Defranco's Limber 11 Of course Dan John says foam rolling is for wimps. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/foam_rollers_are_for_wimps&cr=
  3. Picking up right where everyone left off!
  4. Skinny fat. If you wouldn't mind can you tell me the differences in why this matters? I thought "everyone" needed high GI carbs because we wanted a huge insulin spike, but now I'm not so sure. This following quote from the Replenish FAQ (I know it's not Avant, I'm sorry but I don't want to plagarize). "While some may prefer purely fast-acting carbohydrates, the carbohydrate source in Replenish™ is a fast/slow blend due to the manner in which carbohydrates physiologically enter the cell. This process, termed active transport, actually limits the number of glucose molecules that can enter the cell at any one time and as such, makes any attempt to “saturate” the cell in an all-or-none manner illogical as much of the glucose will be oxidized rather than stored. A better solution is to provide fast-digesting carbohydrates like maltodextrin to activate the receptor sites rapidly, while oat fiber provides the backup for further uptake later in the recovery period." So I've always thought we didn't want anything to interfere with the quick acting carbs but this suggessts otherwise?
  5. Thanks! If one was on a low carb diet and was trying to "time" his carbs right would I want fast or slower carbs if the goal is fat loss?
  6. Ok this is really old and I'm bumping it up. Research I've been reading suggests that post-workout high GI carbs aren't as neccessary as previously thought. What is the prevailing theory nowdays? A mix of slow and fast carbs? Is dextrose/fast acting carbs that important postworkout?
  7. Listerine Whitening

    I'm interested in trying this out, however I was wondering what about the gum tissue. Since levels of peroxide have been irritating peoples gums (see the other thread), then how would a product do that you can't keep off your gums. With the white strips you can keep them on your teeth and off your gums, but I don't see how this is possible with L-W. Or is the level of peroxide too low to do any damage?
  8. Listerine Whitening

    I wonder what Sunkist, our other resident dental specialist thinks about this product. I know he didn't like alcohol based cleansers too much. Oxi: It might say on the bottle, but is this product intended for use before or after brushing?
  9. Biotest Spike

    No chills here...however not much of an effect at 2 caps. Three caps gave me an odd feeling when I tried it the other day but that may have been from not eating much that day. I'll try 3 caps again tommorow I think and report back.
  10. Ab-Solved auction

    1 meelion and 5 then... At least I'll have super sexy abs, and I still got time to go bankrupt before the new law passes!
  11. Ab-Solved auction

    I'm gonna put my bid at 5 dollars over Godmode's final bid
  12. Thanks, got it ordered
  13. Do we still have time to order this? I tried putting Ab-Solved in a cart, but I believe it was the original version, (it said 44.99) and it said their was none in stock. Ultimate procrastinator...
  14. Cluster training is just the specific name to the good old rest pause method. It's heavy lifting with short recovery breaks...however, the video STILL may be worth looking into as I have and enjoy both his books and all his info has always been kickass. I might consider purchasing it myself!
  15. LipoDerm Ultra gritty

    Hmm, haven't heard the sandy either...although the "boogers" thing is spot on T...no big deal in my opinion for a good topical.
