    Basal Cell Carcinoma & HGH

    I've been doing some research on HGH, as I'm getting on a bit and keen to try it for a number of reasons. However I've recently had a Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) cut out. From my research I know there is some risk around increased growth rates of cancer and HGH, but given BCC's are slow growing...

    Waist width

    I've been doing more training then usual and have noticed my waist and hip measurements have increased. I'm guessing this is because I've been focussing on back muscles to help improve my posture. I'm pretty sure that it's not my diet. I'm vegan which pretty much eliminates 90% of bad foods...

    We know the benefits of using machines over the barbell. more volume is required in barbell work because of the limited time spent under tension. An interesting study revealed that 80% received only half strength increases and fatigue using partial reps while 20 % increased strength by 100%...

    Volume vs Frequency

    There is a school of thought that says that frequency of training is of greater importance than sheer volume e.g. if you do 12 sets for muscle group X once per week you will see a greater benefit doing 6 sets twice per week. I can see the logic in this in regards to being able to increase...

    How much water do you drink a day?

So as I said I drink between 4.5-6L a day - just normal water, nothing added to it or...

    Effect of a hypocaloric diet, increased protein intake and resistance training

    i thought this was an interesting read, and its not a really big one. The casein this article refers to is a hydrolysate, not your standard calcium caseinate. A hydrolysate is a pre digested or partly broken down protein. While calcium caseinate is a slow digested protein, a hydrolysed casein...
