    It's better than a lot of people would have you believe though. And it's important to do some cardio in your life. But in terms of looks it's just not strictly necessary, especially not if you're a man. People who go running expecting that it will make them look great are going to be...

    I don't think you should do cardio, and running in particular, for a better physique. It does improve your heart function and the ability to go up a flight of stairs without panting is nice too. There are plenty of people who look great without running though and plenty of runners who look awful.

    It isn't. Many people are able to squat 150 kg. But that's a weight that is considerable and can have consequences if something goes wrong. Verstuurd vanaf mijn ONEPLUS A6003 met Tapatalk

    A deep 150 kg squat is absolutely a big number for most people. It is far more than what is required to be healthy and in good shape. More importantly, I'd be willing to bet that many professional soccer players never do 150 kg squats and still have legs the size of tree trunks. Your analogy is...

    Form becomes crucial with heavy lifting. At lower weights you can simply get away with much more. Your hobby is powerlifting. Obviously you are going to lift heavy ass weights. But most people lift purely because of aesthetics and health reasons. There's no reason for a 150 kg squat if you're...

    Personally I've always believed that there is a breaking point for every exercise. Deadlifts and squats are great for building strength and strength is very important as you grow older. But tendons and bones can only take so much. In fact that's probably why you don't see many elite track...

    I think powerlifters might say it makes the squat more hip dominant. Personally I don't see much benefit for the average person and I think they look and feel weird. Verstuurd vanaf mijn ONEPLUS A6003 met Tapatalk

    If you're squatting low the weight should automatically be less. In fact that's why I prefer low squats. At a certain point too much weight when squatting becomes dangerous no matter what the height is. Verstuurd vanaf mijn ONEPLUS A6003 met Tapatalk

    No one cares. We're playing the semi final of the World Cup. Juventus are signing Ronaldo. There is no weakness. Verstuurd vanaf mijn ONEPLUS A6003 met Tapatalk

    Lol. This is pretty much the most solid advice you can get.

    Deep down we always knew this was going to be about your sexual endurance.

    There are very few injuries that mean you have to stop lifting completely. A person with severe back issues might want to avoid deadlifts, but pull ups might be good for him. In general it's just smart to work out. No need to pull 400 kg or dehydrate to look more vascular, but surely going to...

    The benefits of (sensible) weight training have been proven by now. Especially when looking at sarcopenia. Verstuurd vanaf mijn A0001 met Tapatalk

    I've always found that I can eat whatever I want as long as I'm physically active (but do gain weight quickly when I'm not). But this is something that does differ from person to person.

    Lol. 27 is pretty much prime age for a marathon. Verstuurd vanaf mijn A0001 met Tapatalk

    Good point. Also, I think this obsession we have with running long distances can be counter productive. If you have fun running a half marathon, great. But don't just suffer through it. Running 5K or 10K seems perfectly fine from a health perspective.

    I firmly believe that if you are not overweight and have no significant injuries, you can easily run a half marathon if you can run 8 miles. By that I mean 8 miles already shows you've got at least basic endurance and as long as you watch your pace, I think you should be able to finish a half...

    I feel like he just had mental health issues to be honest. I can't even recognize what exactly his passion was. Was it selling supplements by being a freak? Was it supporting one of the weirdest lifestyles on Earth? Was it about becoming 'big'? I don't know. People say it all the time, dude...

    Lol. I didn't even know the guy was dead. I just saw a documentary in which he was showing off and promoting his lifestyle. He acknowledged taking massive amounts of ped's btw, I'm sure the fucker died of some sort of overdose. Btw being massive is almost never a good thing. Twice the heart and...

    It also seems pretty dangerous. We already live in an age where idiotic Crossfitters manage to get rhabdo on a regular basis, what the hell is going to happen when they use something that makes them able to keep going?
