    “Healthy” foods don’t matter for weight loss - only net calories. They do matter for overall health, though, so eating lean protein (which also helps fill you up) and fruits and veggies helps you get...

    An iPad, so you can read about nutrition here.

    Then worry about the gym. Seriously. No amount of lifting is going to help you if you don’t nail down the nutrition first.

    Look, I’ve got the Bowflex.

    They suck.

    Broke one while being moved, and now it’s nothing but a big paperweight. Can’t be fixed, isn’t worth ****. Choose anything else.

    Fantastic options, thanks! I think the Watsons are probably out of my price range, given my firstborn son coming in May... but we’ll see. Thanks for ideas!

    Because I don’t like the combo systems, I’m afraid. Have the Bowflex ones now, and I prefer the feeling of lifting with individual dumbbells - and it gives flexibility for my wife and I training...

    European delivery - best dumbbells?

    Guys, I’m looking for a complete set of dumbbells to add to my home gym (a 1-10kg set and a 12.5 to, oh, maybe about 35kg for now, racks included). I’d prefer round over hex, and something that looks...

    I’m not jacked or anything, but I’ve always had large thighs relative to my waist and struggled with pants. Yesterday I walked in a store in Copenhagen (they’re online too and ship to the US) and got...

    Depends. Hypothetically, your government (I’ve been abroad too long to call it mine) governs with the consent of the governed, so there is implied consent to the decisions the various iteration of...

    Huh. And here I (almost; I think it didn’t go through) negged Daz for the insensitive post. Welp, my apologies, but I don’t often dig through a poster’s history...

    Seems like I don't rep people often enough - you've been on spread for a while - but good sh*t. My 1.5 years of serious lifting agrees with all of that, for what it's worth. ;-)

    This (bold). Even though I dropped to 178lbs two years ago (profile pic; I’m just over 6’3”, and not a small frame kind of guy), and I’m currently at 203 as I start my cut, I can look in the mirror...

    Good work so far, man.

    A set of 40 pushups at your weight is pretty freaking awesome. Respect.

    Nobody’s judging, to be clear - just teasing. I always drink it black myself, but that’s because I like to eat, so I avoid almost all liquid calories and save them for the chewable food. However you...

    I lifted in nanos for a year and often still do (though I just as often lift in my socks now). I’d say go for it.

    Don’t bother.

    On the minimal chance you’re not trolling, read all the stickies in the programs and nutrition forums. Internalize that information. Accept it as gospel if you don’t understand it or...

    I also came from running, so I know what you mean.

    Your metrics in lifting are straightforward. Did you lift more this time than last? That can be counted in weight (my preference is to calculate...

    This.

    No, strong won’t suggest when to increase weight - but the novice programs here like Fierce 5 are effective and simple. I would strongly, strongly recommend an approach like that.
