Re: Squat help

Experiment with stance more, drop the weight for a bit, and keep playing around with your footing until you REALLY find the position that works best for you. Sometimes a slight change to stance width and foot angle can make a really big difference, and some people never experiment enough to ever rea...

Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Re: ON soy protein?

We used to carry ON soy protein, but they had eventually changed it to use dairy-based flavorings, so we had to get rid of it.

Not sure if they still use the same non-vegan flavorings now, but I'm sure ON can fill you in if you write or call them.

Re: One month vegan, and not feeling so good. Need input

From what I've read, many people don't believe you actually need B12 because the body produces it naturally. Those people are sadly mistaken - unfortunately, there's a lot of junk science in the vegan movement that needs to be stamped out, and things like "We don't need to worry about B-12&quo...

Re: What is your favorite weight gainer and muscle building

Favorite weight gainer? That would be any vegan-friendly buffet, my old go-to was always Indian (I can put down 2500-3500 calories in one sitting there, no problem!), definitely helped me during that year where I put on nearly 20 lbs, but I can't say all that weight was muscle by any means ;)

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Sometimes knee clicks and pops are just a fact of life, hopefully that's the case. My knees sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies when I squat (no damage that has ever been found, no real injuries to them, they're just noisy as hell), so that may just be the way things are for you as well if you haven'...

Anybody can get a job. This. Is. True. You wouldn't believe how many jobs there are in my area that open up, the problem that most employers are reporting is that A) People applying that are below the age of 25 tend to have terrible social skills (raised on TV and internet, not taught how to look s...

Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Deadlifting and chest work today. Kept chest stuff light, still working on fixing that shoulder/lat imbalance where the right side cocks out and loses stability, just keeping things simple for a few more weeks without going too heavy. Barbell flat bench speed presses - 1x2 @ 135 lbs. 1x2 @ 185 1x2 @...
