    nothing really wrong, just that the idea of dieting and supplementation for many people i see is going to the fridge first thing when you walk into the gym and chugging it during training. i dont believe you should have a heavy protein shake during training and shows a lack of planning/knowledge.

    I drink a gatoraid intra-workout sometimes, and some people like to have a drink with a heavy concentrate of BCAA's. I personally don't do the intra-protein shake thing, myself, but there are benefits to having carbs, protein, BCAA's, in particular L-Leucine, intra-workout, but that's another thread topic.

    We'll agree to disagree on this one

    currently i drink 2 servings of LG bc+eaa during my workouts, usually finish withing the first 30 minutes. other times (i cycle nitrates) ill drink 1 serving of powershock with 7 grams of bulk bcaa's.

    i think gatorade is totally fine intra-workouts too.

    the dictator thinks you made a nice post.

    Lol. Tell your grandson to stop sneaking into China with his South Korean friends for RAIN concerts, it looks bad on the family.

    I would and probably should take aminos intra-workout, I just can't afford it, so gatoraid or an even cheaper alternative, poweraid, is all I go for.

    I used to take the NP Bulk Leucine after my workouts. Just scoop a mouthful of the powder, which basically tasted like a mouthful of salt and gargle it down with my pwo protein shake. I've never tried the more expensive, flavored amino drinks.

    westside barbell uses DB bench on a medicine ball and i can say it works alot with stability for regular bench i wouldnt knock it

  12. "My other too tight white under armour vest is not as gay as this one"

    "Real men do tricep kickbacks"

    "Shut up and wrist-curl!"

    "I bench more than Jacko"

    "Lift light or go home"

    These phrases should be tattooed on the foreheads of some twats in my gym, so i think they would make good clothing slogans

  13. dude wasup with all the weenies wearing the under armor shirts. I'm talking bout string bean looking homo's. 30 sets of situp and 10 sets of bench and curls. They wonder why they look like refugee's from a concentration camp. I hate my gym but its free, my dad doesnt use his membership so I do. Saves 30 bucks a month for more food!!

  14. OP i think its a great idea and I would rock one.

    The gloves thing I never understood. Chalk is the best glove ever invented.

    I know I'm new here but sorry, I cannot lift/train with an ipod! PERIOD end of story. It is way too much of a distraction to me. Cardio sure! weight training? gtfu out of here with that ****.
    Alls strapped to your arm with the cord all dangling and ****, always looks like their adjusting the song/volume etc. F that, go do work!

    I like the shirt idea, I'm in if you decide to make em.

  15. i used to do some of those...but not anymore..
    i dont have a cell phone
    i dont rest between sets
    i dont train bi's
    train chest every 10 days
    i take adam,jacked,and animal flex
    i hate mirrors
    drop the dbs if i go heavy flat bench
    dont take roids

  16. You think a pull-up is arriving at the gym.

    You think dips is just another word for fools.

    You say lean & tone.

    You think the 'Big 3' are Bench, Leg Press, and Curls.

    You rock your stunna shades at the gym. COME AT ME BRO!

  19. You accessorize.
    You curl on unstable surfaces.
    Your rest periods are timed in conversations.
    You say "tone" (x2).
    You talk about P90X.
    You talk, period.
  20. update


    I ended up going with pretty much my top 10 since I was making the shirt for me however I do enjoy reading everyone's opinions. The shirt was like $23.50 shipped and I would be happy to make the graphics for any of you and send you the link to the tshirt company.

    This is what mine looks like....

    Front



    Back....I know I spelled supplements wrong...damn Photoshop!


  21. You only pick up 5lb dumbbells because you're just 'toning' and don't want to bulk up.

  22. OP where you getting them made at? I like.

    no i dont rest at all...it takes a bit of time to get used to it,but i have the best gains training this way...i go 45min of weight training with no rest..then i walk for 30min...

  25. you work out at a "fitness club"

    Makes me so glad I put the gym at home

    10. You spend more time talking on your cellphone than lifting
    9. You utilize the mirror to admire yourself rather than perfect your form
    8. You perform reps of heavy weight at 1/4 range of movement
    7. Your routine consists of chest and biceps 5 days a week
    6. You don't squat or dead lift
    5. You barbell curl in the power rack
    4. You drop dumbbells and barbells after your sets
    3. You spend more $$$ on supplements than on your diet
    2. Your rest between sets exceeds your reps...in minutes
    1. You believe that steroids are the answer
    and #0.... your a puss who can dweal with the BURNNNNNNN ahahaha...

    actually thats a pretty complete list... i like.

  28. The number one reason most guys have average physiques at the gym is that THEY DON"T WORK HARD.

    1. You believe that steroids are the answer

    Well, some on your list I actually do and feel it contributes greatly to my success. For instance,

    9. You utilize the mirror to admire yourself rather than perfect your form
    -Proper form has never done anything for me, if I want to stop my gains and hit a plateau, I'll do perfect form. It is knowing how to, and when to cheat are what makes me continuously move forward.

    8. You perform reps of heavy weight at 1/4 range of movement
    -I perform partial movements on pretty much all exercises because I find them far superior to full extensive reps in terms of building mass.

    6. You don't squat or dead lift
    -I personally avoid both of these. I use to squat and deadlift heavy until 3 years ago when I realized my legs and back were not growing. I switched squats to lunges and my legs ballooned up. I switched deadlifts to half rack partial deadlifts and my back blew up.

    Thats just me though, we are each different.
