Sep 26, 2011Only losers think games are about playing fair. Games are about winning - who gives a **** how you got there so long as you did not break the hard rules of the game (at which point you didn't actually win the game).Posted in: General Gaming

So basically pump weights every day with a break every couple of days, focusing on certain parts of the body and slowly building up weight? I can do that!
So, buy some weights?
It's honestly cheaper to find a gym like Gold's Gym - there are some cheap ones if you do some searching.
I pay $15/mo for my membership and in order to have a solid collection of weights/benches you would likely be paying at least $1000 for the basics.

A: No reason you can't do both. But by doing that you have no control over your kid, and upbringing is just as important as genetics. If you want an offspring who values what you value, the best way to obtain it is to do it yourself. I would be disappointed if I donated sperm and my half child grew up to be one of those that dogmatically adheres to every thought they already have, and thought scientists were conspiring to trick the public.
B: Sounds like the "nothing matters" type mindset. No reason to have kids, no reason for the human race to survive, no reason to encourage scientific progress, etc.
What benefit do you get from having children
Sounds like you just want to live vicariously through some influential clone.

Really? If you want to pass on your genes, having kids seems the logical choice.
A) No, it's not... the logical choice would be to populate a sperm bank and pass them on all over the place.
:cool.gif: There's nothing logical about wanting to pass on your genes.

Sep 25, 2011Never ever. I have no ****ing idea what sane person would want 18 years of heavy expense and responsibility that will likely ruin their relationship with their significant other.Posted in: General Off Topic
I interact with a large number of adult clients and the ones that are actually happy are the ones WITHOUT ANY CHILDREN. There are rare families where they are happy and have children.
From any kind of logical perspective having children is just stupid.

Squat, deadlift, bench press, military press, barbell row.
Your goal in the gym is to move more weight for the same reps or same weight for more reps.
Generally it's good to just keep increasing the weight until your reps fall below a certain range - maybe 6 reps - and when they do, you just decrease the weight a little bit to thrust yourself back into the rep range you want (6-12 is reasonable). You'll need more sets to feel tired... 1-2 all out sets is plenty once you've learned how to really recruit your muscle... 3-4 might be better for a newbie.
If you keep lifting more weight your body is going to put on muscle, assuming you are eating enough food.
And honestly... I would avoid bodybuilding.com. You'd find better advice at something like the DC Training forums or even the T-muscle forums.
Another thing... this should be obvious - make sure you are feeling a pump in the muscle group you are trying to work. If you're doing bench as a chest exercise and only ever feel it in your triceps... time to do a different exercise or adjust your form (though, NEVER bench with your elbows out to the side - good way to ruin your shoulders; keep them neatly tucked).
Here's the format I use:
DAY 1: CHEST/TRICEPS
BIG CHEST MOVEMENT (Flat Bench if that does it for you, Incline Bench, flat or incline DB Bench; choose 1): AIM FOR 5-9 REPS, LITTLE HIGHER W/ DB movements
'LITTLE' CHEST MOVEMENT (Hammer Strength machine, incline bench on the smith - heavier emphasis on isolation): AIM FOR 7-12 reps
BIG TRI MOVEMENT (Close-grip flat bench. Do it. Period. Unless due to some injury you can't): AIM FOR 5-9 REPS
'LITTLE' TRI MOVEMENT (skullcrushers on the floor with a pause after each rep are good; the right tricep machine fits in here well too): AIM FOR 7-12 reps
DAY 2: QUADS / HAMSTRINGS
BARBELL SQUAT MOVEMENT (Back Squat or Front Squat): AIM FOR 5-9 REPS
MACHINE SQUAT MOVEMENT (Leg Press, Hack Squat): Choose a weight you can do for 12 reps, straight up, all out. Do it for 20. Take as many seconds between reps as you need to do it - you just cannot rack the weight and you have to push yourself to get there. I usually have a puking break after this exercise.
BIG HAM MOVEMENT (Pretty much Stiff-leg Deadlifts with Bar or DB): AIM FOR 5-9 REPS
THEN, some light Hamstring Curls or something easy if you feel it's needed; usually this is enough since the quad movements do work your hams as well; AIM FOR 12-15 reps if you do them
DAY 3: DAY OFF. DO NOT LIFT WEIGHTS, IDIOT. IT WILL SLOW YOUR PROGRESS.
DAY 4: BACK / SHOULDERS
BACK 'thickness' MOVEMENT (DEADLIFTS, RACK PULLS, BARBELL ROWS) AIM FOR 4-8 REPS
BACK 'WIDTH' MOVEMENT (Pull-ups, pull-downs) AIM FOR 6-12 REPS
SHOULDERS BIG MOVEMENT (Overhead press of some kind; recommend seated overhead barbell, standing overhead barbell, smith machine behind-the-neck overhead presses (do not let the bar drop below ear level or you risk shoulder damage)) AIM FOR 5-9 REPS
MEDIAL DELTS - do 1-2 sets of 8-12 REP raises on machine or with dumbbells
REAR DELTS - do 1-2 sets of 8-12 REP raises/facepulls on machine or with dumbbells
DAY 5: DAY OFF. DO NOT LIFT WEIGHTS, IDIOT. IT WILL SLOW YOUR PROGRESS.
DAY 6: see day 1, start the cycle over. I DO NOT GIVE A CRAP IF THIS IS ON THE WEEKEND. YOUR BODY DOES NOT CARE WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IT IS YOU LTITLE WHINER. YOU WILL LIFT WEIGHTS ON THESE DAYS.
What you need to know:
-I would start doing 2 max sets for each exercise - someday 1 will be more than fine when you are bigger and are better at lifting.
-EACH SET YOU DO AS MANY REPS AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN. IF THAT FALLS OUTSIDE OF YOUR REP RANGE, ADJUST THE WEIGHT NEXT TIME ACCORDINGLY.
-Start off doing the same exercises each time you come to a body part - eventually, setting them on a rotation (ie, first cycle Deadlift, next BBrow, next Rack Pull, then back to deadlift) is useful.
-EAT ENOUGH FOOD. IF YOU ARE NOT GAINING WEIGHT, EAT MORE CALORIES. AND MAKE SURE IT ISN'T STUPID CRAP - HIGH PROTEIN... EASY THING IS GO TO STORE, BUY 1-1.5LBS OF BEEF, AND COOK IT UP WITH SOME BBQ SAUCE.
-Do not go straight into your "working sets" (the ones that count where you are going all out); start with an empty bar and increase the weight doing some low reps with it to make sure you are warmed up. I think it's usually called "ramping up" if you want to try and google it. Example:
Close-grip Bench: 45x12, 135x8, 225x4, 315x8 (this is the workset)
I've written way too much. PM for questions since I'm not sure I'll remember to check this. I know what I'm talking about - before a series of injuries and a incurable illness I was 250lbs and, deadlifted 500 for easy reps, close-gripped 315 for easy reps, etc etc etc. I am educated in the way of building muscle. I started at 150lbs and it took me about 2.5 years to get to 250lbs.

In 100% seriousness my (obviously ex) gf had slept with all my "friends" while she was dating me.
Now my friends are all gay <3 and I hate women

You have to overdose on that get the effect, though.
... Oh, that's the joke.
No you don't.
.5mg and I am sleeping like a baby, never felt more refreshed in the morning.
If you use it irregularly on the really hard to sleep nights it is an effective tool. Just don't make it a habit because benzo addiction is one of the worst possible things to do to yourself.
Xanax is great as a sleep aid.
