Turmeric Powder - who uses this?

So yeah...I've been using Turmeric Powder recently in my foods...putting it in damn near everything to be honest...oatmeal, shakes, over meat/veggies/rice etc. Definitely has a thermogenic effect...I can feel's like a very low key niacin flush w/o the gay itchy pins 'n needles feel. ...

Are there exercises you can no longer do on account of aches and pains?

Just wondering if anyone else out there can't do certain exercises anymore due to aches and pains? I'm now in my early 50s but I still workout pretty hard and do cardio. I'm just dieting hard and trying to get my bodyfat down while continuing to work out. Anyway, I used to do pretty heavy bench...

Elevated AST/ALT enzymes, liver function panels

I'm posting this as a personal account for anyone who has come back with concerns following blood tests, specifically liver function. As they say, YMMV. I'm more of a runner/endurance guy than a lifter these days and it's pretty common for me to hit 3+ hours of pretty aggressive cardiovascular...

Garage Rat should have more reps

The guy has a great build, experience in all aspects of our "hobby", and always gives solid advice. I just noticed his reps are disproportionately low for such great contribution. I guess it's because he is rather soft spoken and measured that he slips off the radar. Just saying.

Archer Pull-ups Holysh!t

As any new exercise one performs it is always going to be odd and a little more difficult than normal (at least it is for me). I just wanted to say that nice slow archer pull-ups really hit my lats. Like good enough I think I will add them in and maybe drop some of my close reverse grip PU. ...
