Re: MMA Gloves

It is hard to find good quality non-leather gloves and strike pads. I have an all-vegan fight center, and we are constantly looking for new gear.

Bodybuilder to triathlete

It finally happened. After years of heavy iron I have an injury that prohibits me from lifting serious iron. By serious I mean any. So I asked my therapist what I could do. It turns out I can bike. I can run. I can swim. Since I can't compete as a bodybuilder and all I can do is the sort of stuff tr...

Re: bikram yoga

Bike am will not hurt your size and or strength. Look at all of the top iron trainers who use it. I especially like bike am when getting close to competition. It leans me out without wasting muscle, and it is restorative.

Re: Meal plan help for female figure comp prep

I think you are relying on a lot of protein supplements. Might want to start looking for other sources. The foods are all clean so that is not too much of an issue. Also I like your food schedule. Great job. You are looking at an April show. Let's call it 20 weeks out. At 28% body fat you want to lo...

Re: 1st Place at the NPC Bill Pearl High Desert Classic

Awesome! You look great. Robert and I did that show last year. We should both be glad we didn't have to go head to head in a posedown with you. Congrats again on a great showing.

Re: Trying to bulk, not going so well...

A lot of talk on diet here. I agree with most of it. Eat more protein. Take in good carbs like oatmeal. Best diet advice ever is to drink more water (1 gallon a day min.). Make sure you are getting enough nutrients. What do your workouts look like? Are you dead assing around on machines or do you hi...

Re: SNC in Tigard, OR

SNC is a great place. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I stop in every time I am in PDX, which unfortunately is never often enough. I cannot recommend them enough.

WIthout drugs, not sure if that is possible. Unless your workouts are on the under achieving side.

Re: cutting calories but gaining fat! need advice please

I'm with Vegan Essentials here. I find athletes doing this alot, especially women. Sorry ladies, but this is a problem many of you have. The more workouts are better or the I'll cut calories to nothing and lose all my fat myth. Men have the half rep myths and a few others. What happens when your bod...

Re: Gym rants

The good news is the bosu ball boys will never get in my way. No way to squat deadlift, clean, or do pullups on them. The guys who recommend them to me remind of the guy with 11 inch arms telling me I was training arms wrong. THankfully since then I have discovered iPod.

Re: THE +40 FORUM

A pro bodybuilder once told me there is no such things as overtraining, only under eating. LOL. I think she may have been a little tongue in cheek, but she was on to something. I find if my nutrition is tight, over training is much less likely to happen.

Re: Gym rants

Stability balls. I mean really. Anything on a stability ball is a waste of time. Almost as bad is the dude who comes in and does nothing but adductor and abductor. Their bodies never change for one simple reason, but they cannot figure it out.
