    Water Additives

    I really like the Modern BCAA+ because it tastes good and gets me to drink more water. I mix it with pine pollen in the morning in a 24oz bottle, and use that to slam an arginine and tribulus. I'm almost out though and need to figure out what next. does anyone have any water additive type...

    Cardio Preference?

    I'm beginning to think that different forms of cardio really effect people differently. My dad runs 3 miles almost every single day and doesn't lose weight too quickly. But over the years I've noticed whenever I add running back to my regiment, the pounds just melt off. I only started running...

    Home Gym Size?

    It's time for me to get serious about a home gym. I'll have to build a structure for it as there is no place in the house. We have a 200sq ft max build size in our county before requiring a permit, but I took some measurements and I don't think a 10ft x 20ft shed would be wide enough comfortably...

    Pine Pollen

    Is anyone using it? I'm curious to as what your results may be. I've noticed that since I've started taking it regularly (a few months), I do feel like the wrinkles (crows feet around my eyes) are fading a lot. I'm not certain that it's had an effect on libido, aggression, or energy, but I have...

    Lower back movements / alternatives to GHD machine

    One of my favorite lower back routines was always extensions on the GHD, but I don't currently have access to one. Aside from deadlifts and RDL's, what else can I throw into my routine to really hammer away at the posterior and lower back area? This is less about aesthetics and more about rehab...

    Abs - a reality check

    I've always been a believer that "abs are made in the kitchen" and over and over again I prove that to myself by simply cleaning up the nutrition plan and never ever doing isolated ab work. With that said, I want to do a reality check. I'm curious of what anyone can share about their experience...

    midnight feedings

    Does anyone still follow this old school approach, of midnight protein shakes or aminos? I'm curious from anyone who's tried it if they feel that they get more benefit from uninterrupted sleep, or waking up to pound a protein shake.

    Direct Ab Work and Aesthetics

    I go back and forth on whether or not I think direct ab work really has any effect on the abs. generally, most of my ab/core work comes in the way of compound movements such as squats, cleans, snatch, etc. I always feel like the abs are going to show through based upon where I am nutritionally...

    Creatine & Strength

    I'm not really on any supplements right now except fishoil and I take a pre-workout about 50% of the time. When I do, I typically take C4 which says it has 1g of creatine in it, and I used to take probalby 15-20g of creatine. I've been feeling really good about myself this year and I've...
