    It looks like dog crap!! They went with Jason Momoa, a friggin' fitness model.

    The gayness level I just saw in that clip probably makes Arnold want to puke. Words cannot describe the disappointment, it will not even come close to the originals.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    I haven't seen the previews for it...and actually wasn't aware of a remake...but crap....why....whhhhhhy are they even trying....? Originality for the most part really is dead in hollywood...dang!

    ...I wasn't all that pumped about Thor...but after having seen the preview for that...think it looks pretty good....

    You got that shizz right!! It's gonna be a terrible movie. I may not even watch it when it goes to DVD.

    They could have at least gone with the German giant Ralf Moeller who was in the TV series. He was 6'6" and around 270.

  5. Mariusz Pudzianowski with a mean beard would have been great, but who knows about his acting talent.

  7. Thought the MN reps might be interested to see this, it was in a paper I read last night pertaining to one of my projects:

    Polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid, have the potential to reduce SREBP-1c transcription by two mechanisms: i) they bind LXRa, functioning as competitive antagonists, and ii) the inhibit the proteolytic activation of SREBP-1 isoforms, potentially interfering with feedforward stimulation of SREBP-1c transcription through SRE... [100nM] Arachidonic Acid reduced basal transcription [of SREBP-1c] by 70% and severely blunted response to insulin.
    SREBP-1c is a primary regulator of lipid synthesis. In other words - AA severely decreases insulin's fat-building capacity with a sufficient dose.

    That's the real question. 100nM in vitro is hard to convert to an in vivo dose without any other info.

  11. So this week I'm only lifting once a day - I'm just too busy to squeeze in two-a-days. Nonetheless, I obliterated myself yesterday. It made me remember why I like two-a-days; they allow for better recovery between your main lifts and accessory movements.

    XFA notes: Nothing new to report.

    Box Squats:
    135x5
    225x5
    275x3
    315x3
    365x3
    405x3
    285x20 - Widowmaker. I swear I saw Jesus reaching out to me. This last set kept me nauseous for the rest of the workout.

    SLDLs:
    135x5 - thick, false, snatch grip
    225x5 - thick, false, snatch grip
    275x5 - thick, false, snatch grip
    315x3 - thick, snatch grip
    Finished these off with a set of power shrugs to failure with 405. I got 18 reps.

    Squats and SLDLs were supersetted with seated calf raises.

    DC Set Leg Curls:
    200x11 +4 +1 +partials to failure

    DC Set Leg Exts:
    300x20 +12 +11

    Finished up with some more calves and some hanging leg raises.

    WTF! He looks tiny and like a weakling. If they get anyone with decent size in the movie he will look like a little bitch next to them. You would think they would be able to get someone with decent size. It is like they didnt even try.

  13. Good looking log.

    Not sure about the new Conan, will reserve opinions.

    It's because pretty boys sell tickets right now. I've heard women say Jason Statham has too much muscle - the guys in shape, but c'mon! Lean, but not large physiques are in, and I feel like it's one more way society is emasculating its men.

    Brother, we might as well face it. A lot of people and especially the women-folk would think you and I are freaks. I'm getting a lot of looks lately since it's tank-top/wife-beater wearing weather. I'm 260 lbs and probably 10% bodyfat right now with veins everywhere.
    I'm garnering attention.....both good and bad. Dudes are eye-ballin' me with them mean-mug looks.
    Gonna have to school a fool.......I just know it.

  16. I'd pick being strong/big and having to deal with looks anytime over being another flabby, faceless blob of mediocrity. I think it is mindset lost on the masses, but a man must strive for greatness! I'm not anything special, but I'll be damned if I let that stop me from fighting for it!

    Just make sure that when your skinny-fat victim get pummeled, he realizes what an honor it is to be beaten by a god.

    Too true. Sad a guy's movie is being dictated by what women want to see. What is Jason a buck sixty? Pretty soon it is going to be illegal to have balls.

    I wouldn't trade my strength for all the gold in Gladsheim!!

    I use more weight for Bent-Over Rows than most dudes use for Deadlifts.
    Monday on Bent-Over Rows I did 405 X 11 reps.

    And just yesterday training chest, I did Flat DB Presses with 150's X 10 reps.

    The lean physique is merely a by-product for me. I'm all about the strength, my brethren.

  19. You make me wanna go row now. My bb row form began to have a lot of bodylanguage in it, so I've been using other row variations. I'll have to start loading the barbell back up for those soon.

    me too, i can get a little jerky with them a la ronnie coleman

    Yeah, if I put some momentum into them, I can move some serious weight. I've just been trying to use a more strict form, with my torso as close to parallel with the floor as I can get, and a good pause and squeeze at the top of the rep. For this purpose, I've been finding db rows and one-arm tbars are better. But I'ma hit some BB rows tomorrow just for the hell of it.

    Anyways, here's a workout update:

    XFA Notes: I'm taking 6caps a day right now. I'll bump it back up to 8 on lifting days when I resume two-a-days. For now, 6 is doing the trick. No major strength increases to report this workout, but I still did manage a PR in reps on OHP.

    Superset: OHP/ Band Facepulls
    135x5/ x20
    155x5/ x20
    185x5/ x20 - Pretty sure this is a PR for 5 reps
    205x3 +1push press/ x20
    DC Set: 175x8 +3 +3push presses/ x20

    Superset: Floor Press/ HS Shrugs
    225x5/ 3plates per side x12
    275x5/ 4 x10
    315x2/ 5 x8
    DC Set: 225x13 +5 +3/ 6 x6

    I should have worked up to 315 slower, my form felt a little off and another light set or two could've helped me find my groove. Felt almost like a JM Press, which is NOT normal.

    Superset: HS Press/ Hammer Curls w/1sec pause and squeeze at the top
    70per side x10/ 50x8
    80 x10/ 55x8
    DC Set: 90 x10 +5 +1/ 60x8

    I then ran the rack with hammer curls, starting with 65x8, then doing 5reps at 10lb intervals down to 30x5.

    Incline Cable Flies Dropset Finisher:
    60x10 +50x8 +40x5 +30x5

    Reverse Fat Bar Preacher 21's:
    60 for 3sets.

    Finished with some incline db curls and I was fried.
