Re: Farmer's Walks?

My only advice would be to put it somewhere after, rather than before, the day you do your deadlifts. I'd want to make sure my grip wasn't tired before deadlift day started! Maybe others might have more recommendations.

Re: Draining beans

Yes, that water contains a lot of salt (probably why it tastes so good to many).

Yes, cooking dry beans is an awesome and delicious and economical alternative to canned beans, and is well worth a shot. You may fall in love ;)

Re: Liquid Egg White Substitute?

Hey Ducan_Idaho, Thank you for responding. I want to keep the high protein content from the liquid egg whites. I also like that it is low in calories and fat. Thanks, Lauren Flax seed oil is...an oil. It's pure fat. So it has neither protein, nor low calories or fat. It's got a ton of omegas, with ...

Re: Post Surgery Routine

VE is right. Don't do ANYTHING that strains your core muscles. The "no lifting over 20 lbs for 4 weeks" advice is also generally meant for people who might carry grocery bags, or a laundry basket. It does NOT mean that you're ready to start heavy weight training after a month. When you sta...

Re: Do flax oil/flaxssed causes prostate cancer?

I just did my urology rotation. Not once did I ever hear a urologist tell a man with BPH or prostate cancer to avoid flax. There just isn't evidence to support that.

Re: Honey?

In the strictest sense, bees are animals, so no - honey is not vegan. In reality, plenty of people who call themselves vegan are comfortable eating honey. Some people think this means they're not "real" vegans. One has to decide for themselves whether or not they feel honey is morally just...

Re: Anyone else have GERD?

The worst triggers are foods that relax the GES (the sphincter that prevents reflux from the stomach). Those include peppermint, chocolate and alcohol. Next worst are things that promote acidity. #1 on this list is caffeine, which stimulates production of acid in the stomach. Cut out all coffee, pop...

Re: Medman's StrongLifts progress photos!

Just a quick update to show you all that I'm still alive. 80-hour work weeks + studying for exams + trying to have a life = going to the gym a bit less than I'd like (twice a week usually). I basically had 6 months from September-March where I made no progress due to an injury and subsequent rehab/r...

Glad to see you're keeping up with your lifting despite things getting so busy. Also glad to hear the business is going well. As always, I'm impressed by your numbers!

Re: Help keeping weight up and cholesterol down

Nothing against veganism but I avoid legumes, all they do is burn fat and shrink muscle in my case. It's like fighting to keep muscle on. Legumes are perfect for a person trying to loose body fat. I think a lot of people on this forum would disagree with you. We have many a bodybuilder, powerlifter...

Re: Lean legs/ass/waist/hips

Working your legs will tone them, but the only things that reduce fat are cardio, dieting, and surgery. I assume nobody here is a fan of lipo, so that leaves cardio and diet. There is no such thing as spot reduction...everyone is genetically programmed to lose "last" from a specific area, ...

Re: Medman, the Ant Man!

You are definitely right - my shoulders and lats are extremely tight. I'm working on improving that. Perhaps it isn't the wrist at al - it's just felt in the wrist!

Re: Medman, the Ant Man!

MaryStella, Thanks for the tip. I feel that my wrist flexibility is limiting my form on the front squat - I can't actually grip the bar if my upper arm is parallel to the floor while the bar rests on my anterior deltoids and upper chest. As a result, my arms end up coming down a bit, but it's the on...

Re: predator

I don't like to debate anything based on our anatomy. Evolutionary arguments are ridiculous...yes, we evolved as hunter-gatherers, but keep in mind that back in the day, we barely lived to adulthood. There was no heart disease, no diabetes...because nobody lived long enough to develop those conditio...

Me too, and the more I run the worse it gets! Will try some of your suggestions, the squat stretch sounds pretty good. It's been suggested to me by a few people who know what they are doing, now I just need to get religious about doing it regularly. Just make it part of your squat warmups. I have a...
