    Yes you did by posing the ?... Who do you think can make it for you..... Talk to ya...

  7. Yea, I also vote no, this is a nutrition/homebrew site, it will take away from our specialty, like wardogs says...heres your training section: High reps when cutting, low reps when bulking. There, done. And yes a powerlifting/exercise forum would put us one step closer to bb.com

  8. Sounds reasonable to me. The purpose of this site was for education. If you could come up with a reasonable bb section then I would read it but odds are it would turn into what creatine is best and what is your max bench. In the long run it would turn to crap. I would agree with the mods on this one and if you don't like it you can always use bb.com to express your thoughts.
  9. Cool

    No it wouldn't. The bodybuilding/powerlifting sections don't breed immaturity; teens do. We can easily have logical questions about training when on.

    Get off my nuts YJ

    buddy, how's that sarcastic? thats the fact. Your goals while cutting is obviously lost of body fat and toning....so this should be backed up by using high rep sets. Opposite with bulking. Your goals should be to add mass and if some bf is added, then so be it (although, i go on clean bulks when i do bulk...so minimal fat gains). with mass/size gains wanted, you shoudl stick with lower reps (5-6, some exercises stretching out to 8 reps) for best strength/size gains. For hypertrophy, bump that rep schem up to around 8-10...possibly 12 reps)
  12. Cool

    LOL. I hate that word 'toning'; it sounds like a friggen car. This isn't true. You should lift the same way whether you are bulking or cutting, but you should just throw in cardio and worry about your diet with cutting. You shouldn't increase the reps to 10-12 if you still want strength, because you will still get cut if you leave the reps at 5, but focus on throwing in some treadmill and counting your calories.

  13. In a matter of days Im almost changed my feelings on a powerlifting/training section because that would make this a complete site and there's always changing and new knowledge in this field, but how many people here are actually certified or have enough knowledge to pass it around? Id hate for there to be 40 threads will no replies.

    What? You can't tone a muscle. You should keep the reps the same while cutting and bulking.

  15. I think a Exercise Science/Training section would be adequate, its going to be inevitable, look at all the training questions already and the articles on stretching, muscle fibers etc. might as well combine them in 1 section and keep them out of the off topic section. The off topic section now is BS posts and exercise science/training questions.....I think my vote has swung, but not a powerlifiting/bodybuilding section, rather Exercise Science/Training.

    Sounds good.

  17. I wouldn't be against an exercise science/training section.   I realize that essentially it will be very similar to the original suggestion with slightly different wording and/or focus.  I think it might have been the idea of a Powerlifting section that threw me out originally.

    Exactly, training is to build and or/maintain muscles. Your diet and cardio determines whether you get ripped or massive. No magic rep or volume schemes. Just more or less calories, and keeping the muscle around/adding to it. If I wanted to "tone" something I wouldn't be lifting a weight, I'd be playing with a pink thighmaster.

    And a vote for the exercise/training for on-cycle and post cycle, section

  19. as a regular poster on bb.com powerlifting forum, if we could get some of the regular bros from over there to poster here it would be invaluable. as it stands now some little wannabe gets flamed in the teen section then all of a sudden they start posting in the pl section. mostly useless junk. this site seems to be more hardcore.
