You people think anyone with some muscular definition is on steroids. That guy is well within the bulk and bodyfat of a natural gymgoer with a good diet and program.
Take a look at pro or even semi pro bodybuilders, then take a look at that guy again. Sure, he COULD be using steroids, in which case he's not working out as hard as he could be. But he's probably not.
"Legal" or not, you know goddamn well it's morally reprehensible. Which is why it isn't legal in the majority of the goddamn planet. Why the fuck it's (questionably) legal in England is another question altogether, and a lot of Britons hate the fact it's possible as well.
Instead of making your own way with money you've EARNED, you're taking something from someone else. That's the bottom line, dude. That's sleazeball shit. If you carry out shit like this, be prepared to be looked down upon by the rest of society. Don't call THEM the "trolls" for pointing it out.
I know you're not fucking stupid, and you know what I'm trying to say here.
Dude, I'm not even trying to troll you. You've said interesting shit on occasion. You're not a detriment to the board, you're a character. You would have been pretty popular with this shit on the original FC.
However, when you start talking about STEALING things, you're going to be called a loser. You're stealing shit, both land and property. Stop trying to sugar coat it as anything else. You're a thief. Repeat it out loud, and see how it sounds: "I'm a thief. A goddamn worthless thief."
No one likes degenerates who steal shit.
When you're out getting blotto and eating pills like candy, you're only hurting yourself. Now you're stealing shit from old people.
I don't think there's a correct answer to this. It depends on your goals and a whole list of conditions, like what you're eating already.
If you're completely new, you can gain a fair bit of muscle even on a cut, for a period of time. If your aspirations are to lift heavier, you might want to up your calories and protein some and do a clean bulk.
Share Guide: Do you prefer the free weights or the machines?
Jack LaLanne: Free weights. But I invented most of the machines in the gyms. All the leg extension machines to the weight selectors, every one of those I invented way back in the 30's.
Share Guide: If you prefer the free weights, then why develop the machines?
Jack LaLanne: For variety. When you are running a gym for the public, you've got to get variety and change the people's programs every 30 days. Then the people break the monotony of doing the same thing. If you had to eat carrots for the rest of your life you'd be so damned bored and malnourished, wouldn't you? These machines of today are terrific. But the weights should be an integral part of it.
Start slow, especially if you're older and/or don't know what you're doing. Diving in could result in serious injuries at the worst, and at the least could put you off to training altogether. You come off a really sedentary lifestyle after years of abuse, barge into the gym and start fast and heavy, you're going to regret the DOMS.
There's a good reason why many people buy a gym membership, go once or twice, then never come back.
At the gym I go to, from January to July, there were over 800 people who started and quit in that timeframe.
That's pretty much the gist of it, yeah. Once you build a base of information, and learn who some of the posters are (several guys there are published authors, a couple are doctors,) you know where decent information comes from.
