This is the best capsule form fish oil I've come across that is reasonably priced.

This is even more concentrated, but too expensive to be worth it.

Just to clarify:

Per PILL:

Now Super EPA:
360mg EPA
240mg DHA

Pills needed to hit 3000mg DHA: 12.5 per day

Normal Fish Oil (anything you'd find at Costco or whatever)
180mg EPA
120mg DHA

Pills needed to hit 3000mg DHA: 25 per day

Also liquid:

Ascenta NutraSea Original LIQUID
(per TEASPOON)

750mg EPA
500mg DHA

Needed to hit 3000mg DHA: 6 teaspoons per day

So would you rather take 25 pills per day, or 2 tablespoons?

THen you can break it down by price.

Using bb.com

Ascenta: $33 per bottle, 100 spoons, 6 spoons per day = $1.98 per day
NOW Super EPA: $21 per bottle, 240 pills, 12 pills per day = $1.05 per day
Cheap Supplements Fish Oil: $7 per bottle, 180 pills, 25 pills per day = $0.97

So it's up to you if you want to pay $0.08 per day to be able to take half the amount of pills, or spend an extra $1 per day in order to take no pills at all. That's why I take a combination of liquid and NOW Super EPA. Overall it takes about $1.50 per day, and is very convenient.

Did rep blast 1000+ rep body weight workout yesterday with clients

circuit style workout(no rest until exercises from the top to bottom are done.:

5x20 pushups
5x20 squats
5x20 crunches
5x50 bike crunches
5x20 bicep curls 40lb bbell
5x20 dips

6th set of circuit was maxed out:
1x65 pushups
1x71 squats
1x51 dips
1x100 bike crunches
1x100 crunches
1x50 bicep curls 15lb dbells

chinup blast(no cheating kicking, from dead full extension):
set 1: 20
set 2: 12
set 3: 10
set 4: 6
set 5: 4
set 6: 4

I don't know why for pullups/chinups there is such a huge fatigue factor from first-2nd set.

i think it could be from, when u lift a heavy weight under huge pressure, like a squat you are pushing all this testosterone and endorphins around, i dono that is what i have herd,
that is why it is good to do heave movements, promotes growth, unlike a 1 leg 1 dunbell squat while standing on your tippy toes in the plank position lol

All about training for muscle memory/reflexes.

That's why people do lumberjack workouts, it's like REAL WORLD strength.

^The muscles which you can't normally see often contribute to strength. You also have to consider the tendons, ligaments, and bones. (All which can be trained, much like muscle)

Weight has little to do with it. For every person that is stronger and heavier than you, there probably is a person who is stronger and lighter than you.

Has no one seriously read this book? It's my favorite book of all time. Find it, buy it, or download it. It's the most useful read for strength.

i've always thought it was because your body can't get rid of the lactic acid buildup in your body, so it purges itself.

Those of you who use Fatgripz, can you describe how it's working out for you? Better/worse?

Tried SuperPump 250 today. I don't know if it's due to the timing, or not enough food this morning, but I felt like crap doing my workout today. I had to do my single leg deadlifts first, and after that I was almost done. Still got through it, but man it was a struggle. Definitely not what I had expected.

I'll give it a few more tries of course.

Preworkout works best on an empty stomach for sure.
Anyone here taking gainer? I'm thinking of taking some again
Due to my boss not liking me "eating too much" at work, therefore
I'm not getting the calories I need to gain, and its already hard for me
To gain in the first place. I worry most about gaining too much of a gut. Thoughts? Opinions?

I know gainer is loaded with sugar but maybe you guys know of some that have lower amounts?Posted via RS Mobile

I usually go to the gym about 2 - 3 hours after I get up. I have tried various means of eating, from high carb to no carb. I find that a light breakfast with a lot of fat works best. Lots of eggs in a protein shake for instance. I'll try adding oatmeal next time.

I probably just didn't get enough sleep.

I use to take gainer but it started giving me a lot of gas. I think you'll be fine as long as your consistently going at the gym hard (As you should be), so the gut shouldn't be an issue imo. I have a 12 lbs bag of ON Serious Mass. PM if your interested.
