Sticky Thread Sticky: Teenagers and dieting

This has been on my mind for a while, and I thought I might as well post it. I've recently noticed an increase of threads by teenage girls in the female forum regarding fat loss, 'cutting' and body recomposition in general. In my opinion people should take caution answering teenage girls'...

Sticky Thread Sticky: Body Fat % - What is it, and how to measure it!

In the industry we are in, and with such a focus on 'being lean', it is no surprise that everyone is curious as to what their BF is.

Looking for light chest workout after Augmentation

I am looking for some sets I can add to my routine that won't kill my implant placement. I am under the muscle, I lift 5-6 days a week and I have already had slight movement. I don't want to over do it, but I can't just not train my chest at all?!?!?!?

Shoes Shoes Shoes

Hi ! Can somebody recommend shoes to train in which can break some of the shock of plyometrics,but doesn't make running impossible ? Obviously I also do strength training,but you mostly stand still with your feet,or simple movements,so that's not really a problem. Thanks in advance.
