Wait, but why don't you focus on diet? That's like not caring about the fuel for your sports car...I mean...nutrition and weight-lifting I thought went hand in hand.

I guess I was being purposefully vague. I don't personally believe that diet is anywhere near as important as exercise. That being said, if you go to McDonalds every day of the week, it will not be good for you.

I don't focus on it or plan it out. I tend to believe that you should eat when you are hungry (~5 times a day) and should not eat when you are not hungry. Of course, you should eat healthy foods and cut out the unhealthy ones as much as possible, but that does not mean that you can't have a little bit of gelato or pizza once or twice a week.

Regarding heart health, I hear great things about HIIT.

Appalled is adequate. I just think we got too much 4chan on the wild wild internet nowadays. Most of them are so desensitized to this stuff because they've experienced it emotionally so many times they've turned off the entire experience itself. Rape is just...what it is. Why bother feeling anything about it? It happens.

That kind of falling asleep at the wheel is what lets it go on in the first place.

Just spare me and other people the time of trying to explain why amazing doesn't fit into a paragraph about rape.

STFU.... fine. Rename this thread. Put it elsewhere... but there may be others who wish to know what we have to say about rape culture.

use a different word when you are referring to rape. It's shocking. It's disgusting. It's heinous. It's awful. It's wrong. It's evil, etc. Those are all relatively fair terms to describe it. Amazing just falls flat.

Fair enough. Would the word "appalled" be sufficient?

Wait, but why don't you focus on diet? That's like not caring about the fuel for your sports car...I mean...nutrition and weight-lifting I thought went hand in hand. I feel that you're missing the other half of the puzzle if you aren't focused on it in your off season at least a little bit. I imagine you don't eat fastfood, or red meat every single day--or maybe I'm wrong.

My main concern is this: heart disease exists in America at such an alarming prevalence that it has to be environment. There are places where almost no one dies from heart disease beside those genetically predisposed to it. I feel I need to concentrate on nutrition just as much as what I do with my body if I want to maximize my life. Some of my family has lived to 95+. I want to go to 100+ if I can and keep my brain and body sharp.

"You are the PERFECT example of the truth behind the latest American Freshman Survey, which has concluded that more students now consider themselves 'gifted and driving', when in reality they are dumber than dirt. "

One survey certainly decides your stereotyping. I suppose there could be a study designed to prove that anyone is 'whatever they want' if you design it properly and make it ambiguous enough. Most people are driven, and most people believe they are gifted. Let's not be coy here.

Give me an example of what you do for a diet to lean up and gain stamina--basically to maximize performance for sports.

Unless I am going to be competing, I do not really take into account diet. I try to eat five times a day and take ON whey with skim milk immediately after lifting. Other than that, I personally do not focus on diet.

If I am going to be competing, I tend to have a ton of chicken and quinoa meals. I also cut out coffee and alcohol and only drink water and skim milk at those times...

"There is quite a bit of breadth here. How about this: tell me what you would hope to accomplish in a gym (get stronger, get bigger, heart health, etc.) and I will go from there. "

I honestly want to have an extremely strong heart, but I want to keep it as elastic and as flexible as possible [I do not want to enlarge it]. I basically want my body to get strong, but I do not want to compromise my life-span in order to acquire the maximum amount of strength and stamina that I can muster in this one measly life I've been given.

So when you work out you try to target every group as much as possible? I've never believed much in isolation myself because you miss stabilizing muscles and you are generally weaker than those that use free-weights. It would be easier to discuss this via another channel rather than these fora.

SPrinkZ-"Theories explain facts."

That's just sad.


SPrinkZ-"I am the boss of this entire thread right now."
SPrinkZ-"By the way, when I was 15 I had a vocabulary that most 50 year olds have."
SPrinkZ-"I may have an arsenal that is packed with grandiloquence."
SPrinkZ-"You're out-classed entirely in every dimension except a pittance of academia."

You are the PERFECT example of the truth behind the latest American Freshman Survey, which has concluded that more students now consider themselves 'gifted and driving', when in reality they are dumber than dirt.

Don't you just love the 'Trophy for showing up' generation?

SPrinkZ-"I usually have 2-3 thoughts going at once"

You misspelled 'a year'.

I was a triathlete for a little while. I gave up on sports mainly because of the political nature of them in schools. It's hard to be starting string when the starting string and team captain's mom is screwing the head coach. It's very hard I'd tell ya.

My aside aside...

"You will have to be more specific if you would like me to discuss further. For instance, would you like to know more about powerlifting, olympic lifting, bodybuilding, muscle recruitment, technique, compound vs isolated, proposed schedules (HIIT, 5x5, StrongMan)... "

I am not very interested in powerlifting to be honest. What is muscle recruitment? Honestly I am a total imbecile when it comes to working out. I just have god-like genetics for building muscle. I was standing at 2 days old by grabbing tables and had full mobility of my neck out of the womb. I also have ADHD--or was diagnosed with it. They tend to have feats of strength.

@SPrinkZ

Just tell me what you lift then I guess.

Fair enough; my routine is 4 days a week. Each day, we do a bench variance and a squat variance. Twice a week, we do Clean Squat Press and twice a week we do Bears (CSP + Backsquat + Press again).

Additionally, we rotate through RDLs, Overhead Press (Standing only), Weighted Dips, Pullups, Front Squats, and barbell rows.

As you can see, we fervently believe in doing only compound lifts and we work the entire body every time we are there. Our rep routing is a 5x5 with 90s breaks between sets.

What else can I say? Well, all of our squats take an oly approach instead of a power approach because of the enhanced ROM. Also, power-style tends to cause the tendonitis in my knees to flair up.

@ Patchgrabber:

We still sing amazing grace my friend...use a different word when you are referring to rape. It's shocking. It's disgusting. It's heinous. It's awful. It's wrong. It's evil, etc. Those are all relatively fair terms to describe it. Amazing just falls flat. It's like you watched a building blow up and people die inside and found it 'amazing'. That's not amazing. It's sick.

@madduck: The irrelevant tangent was initiated by @SPrinkZ, as he derailed us with an asinine comment about the word "amazed" when my meaning was clear and further clarified by the word "appalled."

I would be happy to continue a rational argument provided I can use words sufficiently appropriate to convey the feelings @SP thinks I should have.

Your knowledge on weight training and nutrition that you were claiming to have.

You will have to be more specific if you would like me to discuss further. For instance, would you like to know more about powerlifting, olympic lifting, bodybuilding, muscle recruitment, technique, compound vs isolated, proposed schedules (HIIT, 5x5, StrongMan)...

There is quite a bit of breadth here. How about this: tell me what you would hope to accomplish in a gym (get stronger, get bigger, heart health, etc.) and I will go from there.

Also, I have never played lacrosse. In High School I was a tight end and a sprinter in Outdoor. In college, I very briefly played goalie for our hockey team.

Madduck is right. Squabbles over spelling and grammar isn't good, but semantics is worthwhile I feel because I think semantics get us into these problems more often than we think.

@ Human

Just tell me what you lift then I guess. Since you could be lying about everything. Give me an example of what you do for a diet to lean up and gain stamina--basically to maximize performance for sports.

Aaaaaaaaaaand, derailed again....
come on chaps. Go to the bogs and pee up the wall. This is and has been an informative and serious debate about a relevant subject. As long as you opinions ON THAT SUBJECT are defensible we can all forgive a few mistakes in spelling and grammar.

Patchgrabber:

You don't really grasp what I am saying, and that's all right. But Shakespeare's English for instance was just Chaucerian English jazzed up a bit, and our English today is a lot like Shakespeare's...basically our words change and so do our meanings. I could demonstrate it, but it's really hard to show the evolution of language. Ain't is a good example of a 'word' that isn't a 'word' until recently. The dictionary isn't an authority on anything. People are the authority and the dictionary is a collection of our usages. It's de facto at best is what I am saying. If I'm wrong, then please state why.

So I am curious if you can enlighten me. It would definitely help.

What do you want to know?

"Well of course; why would I hope to prove myself wrong and you right? That is a terrible way to win an argument. "

Arguments are meant to be used to discern the truth. Two individuals have knowledge--share it--compare and weigh one another's ideas and find a consensus on how something should be thought of, or used. If your objective is merely to win then you've lost in the first place. My emotions aren't even remotely engaged in this argument because it doesn't mean anything to me. My other points matter, and you don't even address them so I am not even fazed.

"I am very willing to take the gloves off here. In this way, everyone can bear witness to your humiliation."

I can't be humiliated by people I view to have a bad view of something. And I can't be humiliated by simple posturing.

The definition of the word in a book isn't the real definition ANYWAY. It's contextual and breaks down as soon as you move around.

I didn't realize the word "pedantic" was so regionally specific. Perhaps you can apply that same logic to the word "amazed" and get back to me on how your implied meaning would have more weight than mine.

Please demonstrate your knowledge. I want to get more involved in my nutrition given that both my parents died before they were 50 from heart attacks. So I am curious if you can enlighten me. It would definitely help.

You just want to prove me wrong and prove yourself right.

Well of course; why would I hope to prove myself wrong and you right? That is a terrible way to win an argument.

If you're going to be an intellectual coward and not take off the proverbial gloves

I am very willing to take the gloves off here. In this way, everyone can bear witness to your humiliation.

"Ah, you are a truly remarkable individual to know so much more than those whose job it is to know such things. Perhaps you should write Webster and inform them of their improper definitions."

English has a lot of homophones. For instance...phat means cool. fat means to be overweight, and often doesn't mean one is cool.

One place if you say phat it comes out as 'phat' or cool. Another place, it's an insult.

The same way that the OK sign means OK here, and means non-nice individual in Brazil. The definition of the word in a book isn't the real definition ANYWAY. It's contextual and breaks down as soon as you move around. I don't like being right, my friend. I just so happen to be cursed. :(

I am not a weight-lifting champion by any means.

Oh this is too funny. You should ask around about me before continuing down this road. Perhaps someone here can enlighten you.

Otherwise, I would be happy to demonstrate my knowledge on the subject.
