  1. I just flip when people think crazy dieting is taking care of their health. SURE you're gonna lose weight, but at what cost? Master cleanse = no protein or fats, acid, acid, acid... Doesn't seem like a very good idea. I've also heard it gives you terrible diarrhea (???).
  2. Yawning is not just a physical reaction, it's also considered to be an emotional response. I'm really - REALLY - shy, and sometimes I catch myself yawning when I'm unconfortable - I even do it during cardio too. Try and find out the reason(s) why you're having that problem(?).
  3. I promise to observe HomicideOut and experience the non-sycho world for one day if normal people in turn are willing to experience mine. I'm not being facetious here. In the long run it might be more productive to engage those with philosophical differences than it is to simply disparage them, and I say that as someone who admittedly does a whole lot of the latter. The world changes one mind at a time, and showing a willing normal person what murdering is truly all about might be the best way to help that process along. Oh, seriously.
  4. http://www.peta2.com/OUTTHERE/o-EmilieAutumn.asp?c=p24144 EA is also on this month's playboy - first time I'll ever buy one, and for the interviews
  5. There was a time I'd always jump rope during tv commercials. Now besides strenght training and running I often help my dad with his gardening. About stairs: It always amuses me when my classmates at university would rather stand in kilometrical lines to take the lift than taking the stairs - and our classroom is in third floor. I mean, seriously?
  6. Thought it would be a fun thread, just post pictures of places you usually go running or cycling. Mine: Whenever I want a quick run: http://www.guidoheuer.com.br/images/07.jpg It's an artwork by local artist Guido Heuer, it's a tamarindo sprout pointing downtown. It's about 20min from my house. Whenever I wanna run my brains out: http://g1.globo.com/VCnoG1/foto/0,,21526439-EX,00.jpg Ramiro Ruediger Park, about 40min away from home, it also has a 2km track. When I miss the capybaras: http://patilima.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/2008-08-04_11010blumenau3-upc.jpg Beira-Rio Avenue, downtown. Jogging there back and forth takes up to two hours. When the river level is low you can run on the little sidewalk next to the water. There are tons of capybaras on the grass, and they're quite used to runners, also no fumes at all, the whole thing is just zen. So, anyone?
  7. I'm thinking maybe you're not worried about the fat, but the size of your tummy. Here in Brazil people are big on stomach vacuum. It's said to work core muscles that hold your belly inwards even when relaxed. I like doing it, just for the soreness the day after. Never measured my waist, so I can't tell it worked for me, but after a while doing it I stopped having bellyaches (I mean that nasty cramp feeling next to an oblique) when I run. If you give it a shot, I'd be glad to hear back from you.
  8. Damn Phil, those lats are HUGE! Nice overall mass, but the lats are really massive! I wish mine were anywhere near that big... Sweet tatoo on the left arm too Gotta fix my cam soon
  9. Sorry, I just had to share this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF55PvI3e8o You just can't stop watching Nice forearms! The title says "learn how to train at home" I kinda feel bad for the guy...
  10. That should be interesting. The guy is a legend, no doubt, and probably has many fans on this forum. Is he going to compete for IFBB? If so, he's a sure top ten. Unbelievable obliques! Awesome biceps and quads. His traps are way smaller though, and he lacks a bit of lats and shoulders.
  11. It'd help if you told us what's your problem, if it's the going down, the going up, your back hurts or anything like that. Try doing a bodyweight squat If you can do it, it's just you may be trying to squat too much weight...
  12. Aw, so it's all bias, thanks Chris! A kilogram of castanhas de caju is around 25R$~15U$. There's also a big problem with caju, people like its nut, but not the fruit itself (you need a grown fruit to get one little nut), wich is often thrown away! A friend of mine has a recipe for caju mockmeat, I'm eager to try that out sometime. So, spamming ended, again, thanks and sorry everyone.
  13. Haha, thanks for claryfying! I was just wondering, cause an acquaintance told me the reason cashews and brazil nuts are so expensive here is that there are importing interests involved, and they're actually cheaper out there.
  14. Da-yumn! I want a serratus too! And man, that rhomboids look awesome! Killer abs and obliques, great work! Extra exclamation marks!
  15. Hope you all forgive me for the spamming, but just out of curiosity, how much costs a pound of cashews in US?
